In a brief statement, the bankers said they "took decisions on specific measures to insure by coordinated actions orderly conditions in the exchange markets and to support...the fixed price." "The volume of gold and foreign exchange reserves at their disposal guarantees the success of these actions," the statement declared. Details of the actions were not announced. In Washington, the invitation to other nations to join the gold pool was seen as directed toward France, which left the pool in June. The United States has assumed the 9 per cent share held by the French, increasing U.S. participation to 59 per cent. There have been reports that banks of oilier nations, including France, have joined the gold run In the London market. A French official Friday denied responsibility for the gold-buying wave. However, the British press Sunday attacked French President Charles de Gaulle on charges of attempting to sabotage Britain's devaluation plans and overthrow the international stability of the dollar. The United States, seconded by the International Monetary Fund, has reaffirmed previous commitments to maintain the present price of gold. cafffi alTlSrK ««1 "<* l^en-rvSam;" Depots; A"',otaiof $40 million; AmericaTin connection with the ' McNamara said I more has horn earmarked for brutalI slavingJ of a reUred coil- A high-level defense team re-'shipment out of the country to nip from Oregon Citv Ore 'turned from an inspection tour other areas j A Mexico Citv"newspaper'last of the war zone a few days ago The Penlagnn plans to use' week IdenllHe? the sZecl asiahd told McNamara that for the'ships returning from Vietnam to Sedtof S!aridon h Y Sian i first time since the. huge Viet- j haul execs, supphes to 0kmawa and a Korean war veteran. ! nam buildup began in mid-1965, j a. d olher r aufic aieas He is wanted for questioning accurate statistics on mvenlo- 1 The Army s Logistics com- about' U.J She" and bulS ries are being compiled, partly ™"d In V,e Jam ha, wporte killings ot Mr and Mrs Percy . with thc aid of computers , Us iTd.slt. on progrd, a L Gentry The bodies were 1 The team, including reprc- save an estimated $230 million- found last week near Querctnro.' sentallvcs from the Pentagon's by^nexl Ju y Wp , lmnrp ! about 100 miles northwest of Installations and Logistics Of-!

No mention is made of patient con- j sent—and the intent seems to be to make reporting mandatory as "a danger to public health," —A proposal by the Indiana delegation that news items critical of the medical profession be promptly answered by the AMA, and published in AMA periodicals so that doctors will have the facts to answer such items personally, —A proposal by the board of trustees to redefine and elaborate on the purposes and responsibilities of the AMA itself to improve its meaning to the general public, The 11-point elaboration would replace th,e century-old statement that the AMA's objectives are "to promote the science and arts of medicine and the betterment of public health." -r-A proposal from the Penn sylvania delegation that the AMA talk with the insurance industry on the increasing difficulty of obtaining insurance against malpractice suits. Some AMA experts say the fear' of malpractice suits is behind an increase in the costs of hospital and doctor care. Doctors seek to have every test possible per formed on some patients against the chance they may one day have to defend their treatment and diagnosis court.
