"Negle'cted Man" Is Socialized Medicine Backer--Altvater BALTIMORE, (£)--The "neglected man" is providing most ol the urge for "socialized medicine," F. V. Altvater, superintendent of Duke hospital, Durham, N. Car., told hospital executives Thursday at a regional meeting of the American College of Surgeons. Altvater said the "neglected man" was the patient who is "relatively poor, gets a small salary and is honest."

From these payments the co-operative group hires doctors on a salary basis to care for members. "Whether socialized medicine is a good thing I do not know, but from the way we hospitals are charging now I suspect there is a need for it," Altvater said.
