2 The Messenger Tuesday March 4, 1I7S !: t i neauri insurance Action Is Not Likely This Year Is , tea A funeral is your last chance to express your feelings about someone who's been important to you. We think it should be a very special time, and we try to make it that way. BARNETT STROTHER fun antral ttome Dial 821-7135 MR. AND MRS. W. FRED STROTHER DOUGLAS WALLACE WASHINGTON AP) Despite a push for action this year. Congress appears unlikely to enact a national health insurance plan before 197H. The Ford ' administration, medical profession and congressional sponsors of the more than 20 pending insurance proposals remain deadlocked over such issues as: Whether the plan will cover everyone or only special groups. Whether the services will be comprehensive, or restricted to catastrophic illnesses. And whether the program should be financed through tax credits, federal or state revenue, or through premiums paid by employers and employes. Congressional leaders like j Chairman Al Ullman. D-Ore.. i of the House Ways and Means Committee want Congress to move this year on health insurance legislation, which has been stalled for more than two years. "This Congress will be the national health insurance Con- ! gress." says Ullman. But he adds that it may be November before a bit can be placed before the full House because of pressing energy and tax legislation. Edgar N. Duncan, an assistant U.S. surgeon general, believes the slumping economy may increase the likelihood of Congress enacting such legislation because of the growing number of Americans faced with rising health bills and no jobs. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy; D-Mass., sponsor of a com prehensive health insurance plan backed by organized labor, says Congress must move swiftly. But Kennedy's aides say Congress is likely to move promptly on only one piece of health care legislation a bill extending Medicare benefits to the jobless. Such a bill is pending in the House. The Kennedy plan would establish a single, mandatory in surance program covering the entire population with full benefits. A 1 per cent tax on up to 20,000 of a person's income would finance the program. The two other plans with widespread congressional support were devised by the administration and the American Medical Association.

Members of the delegation of seven House members and one senator were expected to present their advice today to the House Appropriations subcommittee that is considering President Ford's- request for S222 million more in military aid to Cambodia. Four of the legislators made public statements firmly in favor of more arms aid, two said they were undecided and two said they opposed more military assistance. However, there was agreement that more medical and food supplies should be sent.

The lawmakers returned Monday from their tour amid indications that some of them had changed their views as a result of their experiences in Vietnam and Cambodia. Rep. Paul N. McCloskey. R-Calif., an outspoken opponent of U.S. involvement in Indochina when he ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 1972. said he favors more military assistance. "I'm not prepared to just abandon that permimeter i around the capital of Phnom Penh) and those people without food or medicine or ammunition." he said after the delegation met Monday to discuss recommendations. "I think we owe them that much as a result of what we've done to them." He contended it was the United States that involved the Cambodians in the Indochina fighting. He also said he had concluded that Cambodia's fall to the insurgents would result in a bloodbath. McCloskey said he would vote to give Cambodia ammunition, food and medicine until the rainy season begins there around June 1. After then, the United States should end all aid and remove all personnel, including the U.S. ambassador, he said. - McCloskey's sentiments generally were supported by Reps. Bill Chappell Jr., D-Fla., John P. Murtha. D-Pa., and Sen. Dewey F. Bartlett, R-Okla. 1 :-. Rep. Millicent Fenwick, R-N.J., indicated she was leaning in favor ot more military aid but said she was undecided, while Rep. John J.
