Medicare tor Motorists Seems Likely By JOHtf BECKLER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -. The process that brought the federal government Into the health In* surance field has begun to work In automobile Insurance, much to the Industry's dismay. Whether the auto Insurance people, unlike the doctors, are alert enough to head off the motorists' equivalent of medicare remains to be seen. What seems clear, however, Is that one way or another there will be changes In the present system. Expressions of wide and (crowing dissatisfaction by the motoring public with the rates and practices of auto Insurance companies has been noted by President Johnson. In his State of the Union message he called for a government study of the Industry. Johnson Is well behind Congress In his request. Four congressional committees have either announced Investigations of their own or asked that a federal agency undertake one. The possibility that such government scrutiny could lead to federal regulation. If not some form of federal accident Insurance, has produced a searching self-examination within the Industry and studies by outside observers. But the voices that have been raised as a result Indicate wide differences of opln- . ionjabot)t|Khat-shtfuld bejone. ; Suggested .-solutions-' -range from minor tinkering with the present system to a proposed drastic revision that challenges the concept on which the system Is based—namely, that someone has to be found at fault In every accident before a claim Is paid.

The victim of a traffic mishap would recover his actual medical costs and lost wages up to a fixed amount no matter who was at fault In the accident. The professors say the present system Is appallingly wasteful and rampantly unjust. Only half the money paid out In premiums comes back In benefits, they say, adding: — Claimants settle for far less than they are entitled to In the face of hard bargaining by Insurance companies and long delays In paying off. — Victims In, accidents where no blame can be fixed, or where both parties are at fault, collect nothing. The O'Connell-Keeton plan has won some advocates In the industry and more outside It. The fiercest attacks on It have come from the legal profession, And editorial In a recent Issue of the American Trial Lawyers Association magazine called It "a collectlvlst Idea that group security Is more Important than individual rights," That lawyers have a stake In the present system Is manifest. There are estimates that accl* ctent litigation now accounts for 65 to 80 per cent of the civil cases tried in U.S, courts each year and produces half the In* come of American lawyers, The Keeton^O'Connell plan would eliminate about 95 per cent of that business, The existence of the plan and the controversy it has touched off In the industry have started a search for other alternatives.

Dear Helen: I've been feeling so guilty all morning I just have to pour It out. Me and my sharp temper and quick tongue. How could I be so cruel? Our l3-y»ar-old daughter Is Industrious and willing. It sounds unbelievable, but she loves to clean house and she does a fine Job. We appreciate hsr and tell her so, .^.Except this morning! Without asking me, she piled a load of what she thought was "Junk" outside the garage. That junk turned out to bo some prized papers her older sister tuvl left lying around. Wouldn't you know: it rained last night and the papers got soaked. Keepsakes wen ruined. Result; chaos—and a mean, cuttlne lecture on the "ask first before you act" them from a mother who could now bite off her tongue. I know how Important It Is to praise helpfulness and not choke off the vital spark of Initiative with criticism or bosslness. When a girl works her head off, unasked, and then gets bawled out for It, will the eagerness be knocked out of her?- GUILTY MOTHER Dear Gulltys «,Not when sha has a mother like you, who knows the Importance of praise and ap» preciatlon but Is human enough to explode, then hate herself afterward, GOOD parents almost alwsys feel guiltier about their "mean. ness" than ttje act warrants— and their children almost never hold U against them, When you have a close relationship-as I know you must— both sides makes allowances for occasional hot words, I'll bet your laugh* ter had almost forgotten the Incident by the Ume you wrote, and I'll also bet you made it up to her ten times over before your letter reached print, Rlght?- H, Dear Helen:: May J verbally shake the hand of the man *ho says he will no longer be tan* ashed to the couch when his wife gets mad?

My friend Is sincere, comes from a wealthy family, makes friends In a minute, but he's knocked cold by this dame. He wants to marry her In February, before he goes to Viet Nam. My parents, my wife and friends all say. "Keep out of the fire or you'll get burned," but Is It right to let my best buddy walk Into marriage with a girl who probably won't be true to him?

New biological test techniques make ft possible to recognize the gene carriers of 07 out of 99 known "inborn errors of metabolism," which ore Inherited cnzymo deficiencies often responsible for severe deformity or mental retardation in children, Dr. David Yl- Yung Hsia recently told n March of Dimes-sponsored Genetics Institute meeting. Study of disease carriers provides scientists with sharper tools for understanding the subtleties of inherited deficiencies, said Dr. Hain, Detecting disease carriers also provides geneticists with useful Information on how genetic traits are inherited, he added. Chem- Icnl differences among carriers of the same disease, for example, may reveal that more than onq gene is Involved In the discnso process. Identification of carriers simplifies calculation of how frequently the disease-producing gene occurs among different populations. All this information, says Dr. Ilsln, takes much of the guesswork out of genetic counseling, A simple tost performed on persons of high-risk populations—either relatives of a person .with n heritable disease oft imembcrs of., population groups having a high disease incidence-—may tell whether they do, In fact, carry the disease and, If so what the likelihood is of transmitting it to their children.
