Editorial . . . Law That Hobbles Medical Progress A s MEDICAL SCIENCE heads for the 21st century, what wonders to perfoi-m, a 400-year-old oddity of English common law stands in the way—in at least 10 states—-of the development of what will surely be a commonplace technique in the next cenlui-y, the transplantation of human organs. Even today, an unknown number of persons each year are being condemned to disability and sometimes death because of the law which says an individual may not make an arrangement for the disposal of his body or parts of it after his death in any manner violating the right of his spouse or next of kin to bury it. According to the American Medical Association's Law Division, 35 states have passed laws permitting an individual to will his body to medical science. Five others—Alaska, Georgia, Hawaii, Virginia and West Virginia—allow the donation of eyes only. But 10 states still follow common law rules: Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, Montana. New Hampshire, Ohio, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming. In Massachusetts, where some of the leading work in transplantation is being done, the legislature this year for' the third time defeated a bill that would allow residents to will their bodies or parts of them. Although permission from next of kin is usually granted, physicians complain that by the time it is obtained it is ordinarily too late. Because of this, there is a long waiting list for eye donations and in the case of kidney transplants, charges one spokesman for a Massachusetts hospital, as quoted by the Health Bulletin, "hundreds of people die every year who might have been saved." It is not only in the matter of tissue and organ transplantation that the common law conflicts with common sense. It is a hindrance to medical education and research. An increasing supply of cadavers is needed, says the AMA, for the more and more medical and osteophathic schools being built and for the training of nurses, dentists and others. High Form Of Altruism W E'VE ALL SEEN THEM— a card above the window of a bus asking us to 'Give to the College of Your Choice;" a newspaper ad urging us to "Put Your Faith to Work Every Day"; a magazine ad promoting safe driving or equal employment opportunities or the hiring of the handicapped. They are only a few of some 102 similar messages—from Aid to Higher Education right through the alphabet to the Zip Code—sponsored by the Advertising Council last year through the media of newspapers, magazines, radio, television, transit cards, outdoor posters and direct mail. In the fiscal year ended June 30, the advertising and communications industries contributed no less than $236 million worth of such public service advertising. All of it was donated through the Advertising Council, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization which for nearly a quarter of a century has been demonstrating how the private sector of the economy can work voluntarily for the public good. CAPITAL FOOTNOTES By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Federal Aviation Agency says a new inertial navigation system for guiding jet airlines on long-range flights is proving far more accurate than present systems. The Department of Health, Education and Welfare awarded 1,937 grants and fellowships worth $59.7 million during October.

Today In Washington By TH EASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) - America's top money earners work long hours, look for safety in investments and don't let taxes discourage them from earning even more. A Brookings Institution survey of 976 Americans who earn $10,000 or more a year showed a median work week of 48 hours. There was a working wife in 40 per cent of the families earning between $10,000 and $30,000. Many breadwinners held two jobs -- but especially with the very wealthy, the extra work was in such areas as consultant or counsel. The study said seven of eight respondents specifically said they did not curtail work because of taxes. It concluded that probably less than one-half of 1 per cent of potential output is lost because of tax discouragement. The survey, published in a book titled "Economic Behavior of the Affluent," also showed: —"TTie average age and education of respondents were higher; a relatively high proportion were Presbyterians, Episcopalians or Jews, and a relatively low proportion were Catliolics or Fundamentalist Pi'otestants. And a larger proportion tlian in a representative national sample were Republicans, own their own homes and had lived in more tlian one slate," —A large majority at all income levels named safety as an investment goal; half said they saved to accumulate money for retirement. WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan commission says the federal system may be gravely weakened unless states work harder to solve metropolitan problems. The report prepared for the Commission on Intergovernmental Relations said cities are now going directly to Washington for help because states liave lagged in attacking dty problems. Beer brewing techniques were perfected in the monasteries in the eai-ly days of the Christian era. Worldj^ews By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — More than 300 North Koreans are said to have burned to death last March when the train in which they were passengers struck a high-tension wire in a tunnel South Korean newspapers reported today. The papers said the information was obtained from North Korean reporters who attended a meeting of the Armistice Commission at Panmiinjom Thursday. The newspapers said a 10- coach train on a run from the North Korean capital of Pyongyang to Chongjin on the east coast March 20 brushed a high- tension power line on tlie ceiling of a tunnel. A short circuit caused a fire, which destroyed seven of the coaches and burned more than 300 passengers to death, including some 20 ranking provincial Communist party membei-s. The Communist regime reportedly executed the chief engineer of the Sinchang railway statiOTt after the accident and dismissed Railway Transport Minister Kim Hoe-il. BUENOS AIRES (AP) Four times in recent montlis Argentine planes have buzzed a fleet of 24 Soviet fishing trawl- ei-s operating inside Ar„'pntine territorial waters, a na\^y department spokesman said. But rep<nts from the Bahia Blanca naval base Friday said that despite the buzzings, the Russians ships contir/jcd trawling. M.ADRAS. India (AP) - Sixty-nine opposition memljers, most of them Communists, resigned from the Atidhra State legislative assembly Friday when a no-confidence motion against the ministiy was defeated. Most of the group said they quit over the state's alleeod indifference in getting the national government to build a proposed steel mill at Vizagapa- tam. Two resigned to protest a ban on the slaughter of cows — regarded as holy by Indians. Both issues have caused bloody riots in India. The Syrian government has arrested about 400 supporters of a pro-Nasser Socialist organization, the newspaper Daily Star reported today. The Beirut paper said the arrests were made prior to a mass political rally staged by the government Friday to commemorate the ouster of the Baath Socialist government in Iraq in November 1963. BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - ROME (AP) — A shop window mannequin wearing a topless bikini does not necessarily offend public decency, Italy's Supreme Court has ruled. It all depends on how closely the dummy resembles the real thing, the court said Friday in ordering a new trial for two Si­ cilian clothing store owners. Two years ago the merchants were fined $16 by a Palermo court magistrate for displaying half-clad mannequins in their windows. The Supreme Court said the magistrate failed to ascertain whether the mannequins should be considered simple "dolls" or "expressions of femininity regarding those parts of the female body that must be covered and not publicly exhibited." During 1965, 2 million tourists spent $82.8 million in Dallas, Tex. The National Basketball Association started keeping rebounding records in the 1950-51 season. NOW ENDS TUES.
