THERE ARE MANY OTHER VERSIONS OF THE "SHORTIE" TO CHOOSE FROM AT Socialized Medicine Is Discussed Dr. L. R. Woodward discussed ic Wagner-Murray bill at a neeting of the Wa-Tan-Ye club 'uesday noon at the Hotel Hanord. Miss Bertha Gould presented Or. Woodward and Mrs. Helen Curing presided in the absence of Irs. Max Kissick, president. Dr. Woodward related the ori- ins of the Wagner-Murray bill vhich has to do with socialized medicine, pointing out that in 928 a committee was appointed to tudy the matter, that in 1935 a eference to socialized medicine vas deleted from the social se- urity bill and that now the Wagler-Murray bill calling for social- zed medicine is in the finance ommittee of the senate and the vays and means committee of the 'louse. "The bill has all the earmarks of free medical care'--but in reality, a tax would be added to one's income," he said. "It is estimated that there would be an income of 12 billion dollars from this ill if it passes. Free medical care s definitely a misnomer." Dr. Woodward cited cases in iermany and England where po- itical leaders, about to lose their power, used as a platform "free medical care" and were retained in office. "It is a fact," said Dr. Woodward, "that the quality of medical care in both Germany and England is inferior to that of the United States. Our free and individualistic system here has been :he best for human beings. Dr. Woodward said the bill, it Jnacted, would provide for the appointment of a surgeon general by the president o£ the U.
