"I think there's no doubt that all three military services are feeling the effects of the lack of a draft as far as getting physicians in," Vice Adm. Willard P. Arentzen, the Navy's surgeon general, said in an interview. The services by latest count are short 1,076 doctors. That's almost 10 percent of the authorized medical force of 11,811. As of Sept. 30, the Army was short 682 doctors out of an authorized 4,738. The Air Force put its shortage at 222 from an allotment of 3,409, and the Navy was short 172 doctors of its 3,664 slots. "For the next couple of years, maybe until 1980-81, we're all going to be hurting quite badly," an Air Force spokesman said. While it's still too early to pass judgment on the all- volunteer force, an Army spokesman said, there's no question that the end of the draft in 1972 is having an effect on the supply of military doctors. "We're in a pinch right now in trying to get folks in," he said, "especially radiologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists and family care (doctors)." Many specialists have left the services because Congress made them ineligibile for bonuses that could have totaled $13,500 a year in some cases. While money is a factor, Arentzen said, job satisfaction matters too. He said Navy physicians look outside the service and see that they "don't have to wait for equipment and so forth. They don't have to put up with some of the frustrations that we in government do, and, therefore, they go ahead and get out. It's unfortunate." "The young doctors of today have been brought up to rely on a lot of instrumentation," he said. If they find military medicine lacking in equipment and facilities, they quickly become disenchanted, he said. But Arentzen said an $18.3 million allocation for purchases in the next year should ease the problem. The expected crunch of the Contractors Fight Minority Regulations TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A group of Kansas contractors has asked a federal court to slop enforcement of a regulation guaranteeing minority- owned business ten percent of federal public works projects. In a suit filed in U.S. District Court in Topeka Thursday, the Associated General Contractors of Kansas claimed the quota was unconstitutional under the Kansas and U.S. Constitutions. The regulation guarantees businesses which are at least half minority- owned a ten percent share of the projects generated under the $4 billion federal program. About $30 million of that money has been approved for Kansas public works projects. John Harrelson, executive vice president of the SCO-mem- ber group, said association wanted the court to rule on the issue of the ten percent minority quota requirement. Harrelson said the suit would not affect projects already under construction, or road and park projects which are not usually done by general contractors. He said he didn't know the exact number of projects or the dollar amount contested in the suit. early 1980s, he said, stems largely from the end of a plan that allowed doctors to delay their draft obligation until they completed specialized training. In the future, Arentzen said, the services will have to rely primarily on scholarship programs, under which medical students agree to join the military after graduation. The services also must rely on foreign-trained doctors. Arentzen said that of 190 physicians recruited bv the Navy in 1977,106 were trained outside the United States. Seventy-two were aliens. Navy doctors serve 719,000 active duty personnel and 2.12 million dependents, retired personnel and dependents of retirees. The law firm of HEINEMANN & QUINT Attorneys at Law 206 W.
