Lakes Area Hospitals Meet ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., DEC. 20, 1972 Page The Board ot Directors of the Lakes Area Confederation of Hospitals (LACH) and other interested people from five counties met in Spencer recently to develop a set of objectives for LACH in 1973. The Program was conducted by Mr. Louis Prock, who has had wide experience in a group process known as the " Nonimal Group Technique. " Mr. Prock is the current Associate Director of the Office for Comprehensive Health Planning for Iowa. The work session culminated when small individual group priorities were ranked by the entire group and four major projects were identified. The first ranking priority is for LACH to develop mechanisms through which specialized and personnel can be shared among hospitals in the Lakes Area. Ths would be an effort to improve the quality, number, and availability of health services The second ranking priority is the development of a regional physician recruitment program through LACH. This program would be aimed at solving the current medical manpower shortage in the area. Coordination of hospotal resources to achieve effective and efficient utilization was the third ranking priority. Implicit in this comcept is the notion that each community may no longer be able to afford a hospital and staff that is "all things for all people", but that the resources must be coordinated on a regional basis. Fourth in the list was the standardization of equipment and Justice Goldberg Opposed To National Appeals Court WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Supreme court Justice Arthur J. Goldberg says he is opposed to the creation of a new National Court of Appeals and has "grave doubts about its constitutionality." The proposal came Tuesday from a panel of law experts. "The court is now at the saturation point, if not actually overwhelmed," said the chairman, Prof, Paul Freund of Harvard. As a result, the committee recommended that Congress set up the new court to screen vir- Disposed Congressmen Find Transition Hard WASHINGTON (AP) - Some congressional veterans deposed by their constituents in the 1972 elections are finding it difficult to make the transition from public to private life. The election defeats caught many with their plans down. Some will go back home to practice law or just take it easy. Others will stay around Washington as consultants, lobbyists or perhaps employes of some other branch of government. That's especially true of those who served several terms and still have considerable influence in Congress and the -government in general. None of the lame duck legislators is likely to go hungry. Some are eligible for the maximum pension of about $34,000 a year, based on length of service including up to five years of military duty. The oldest of the lame-ducks, both in age and seniority, is Emanuel Celler, D-N.Y., who at 84, was defeated in his party primary by 30-year-old Elizabeth Holtzman. He is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and has been in the House 50 years. He plans to open a Washington branch of his New York law firm. Another old-timer, George P. Miller, D-Calif., isn't certain what he will do when his term ends next month. The 81-year- old veteran of 27 years of service lost his bid for renomina- tion. He is chairman of the House Science and Astronautics Committee. Miller said he has received several offers to serve as a consultant but hasn't decided whether to accept them because "I'm not a damned bit interested in a 9 to 5 job." Sea Margaret Chase Smith, R-Maine, is 75 years old and served as a representative and tually all of the appeals that now go to the Supreme Court— more than 3,500 a year. Goldberg, who sat on the court from 1962 to 1965, said in an Associated Press interview that he disagrees with the idea. "The Constitution of the United States says there shall be a Supreme Court," he said. "It does not contemplate in my opinion that there should be a Supreme Court and a subordinate Supreme Court," The former justice said his second reason for opposing the proposal is that the court "has adequate means within the existing law to screen out frivolous cases." He went on: "While the number seems very great to the layman, the court is well-schooled in dealing with such a problem." Goldberg said he read every petition filed in the court during his years there. "I made my own decisions,- not my senator for 32 years until her , ,, ... ... defeat. If she has any plans for he added "I did not the future, she has kept them to herself. Wayne N. Aspinall, 76-year- old Colorado Democrat defeated in a primary election after 24 years of service, plans to stay around Washington until spring. He is chairman of the House Interior and Insular Affairs Committee and may do part- time work as a consultant. "I am going to get in some fishing and do some of the things I haven't had time to do," he said. "I'm going to build a home on the Colorado River in my home town of Palisade." Rep. Fred Schwengel, 65, R- Iowa, has past experience in making the transition to another job. He served 10 years in the House before being defeated in 1964. He made a comeback two years later and was defeated again this year. Schwengel, an American history buff, will forego another comeback try to instead become executive head of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society. Official Losing Faith In U.S. Free Enterprise WASHINGTON (AP) - An outspoken Navy procurement official says he's losing faith in the free enterprise system after nine years of watching the nation's largest defense contractors. Gordon Rule says nationalization of key segments of the defense industry may eventually be an answer. Testifying Tuesday at a congressional hearing without the usual printed statement, (he said he feared the Navy wouldn't clear one if he had written it,) Rule said President Nixon made a mistake in appointing Roy Ash, former head of Litton Industries, the nation's 11th ranking defense contractor, to direct the federal budget. The director of the Navy Material command said former President Dwight Eisenhower would be "twitching in his grave," if he could see the way weaponry is purchased now. The military-industrial complex Eisenhower warned of nearly two decades ago, Rule said, has given way to a "military-industry-executive department complex." In a series of rapid-fire accusations about procurement practices Rule testified before the joint Congressional Economic Committee: — If Litton's huge shipbuilding contracts for five new helicopter assault ships continues to show insufficient progress by a Feb. 28 deadline, it should be "terminated for default." — The management erf Grumman Aircraft deliberately underbid the competition by $500 million to get the F14 jet fighter contract, then sought a "bail out" for nearly that much when it began losing money. Rule, 65, a former Navy captain and Washington attorney said he reviews up to $8 billion in procurement each year. "Sitting where I sit at Navy procurement, I think we've got to get away from the syndrome of 'get the contract and Uncle Sugar will someway bail us out," he said. "As I see it, we have already moved to a quasi-welfare system for a few defense contractors without having the guts to tell the taxpayers we have moved to socialism," he said. Nixon Picks Yeutter Ag Assistant WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House will announce soon the appointment of Clayton Yeutter, architect of President Nixon's farm-belt election victory, as assistant secretary of agriculture for marketing and consumer services, sources in the Agriculture Department said Tuesday. Yeutier, 42, will succeed Richard E. Lyng in the $38,000 job which includes supervision of food-stamp and child-nutrition programs, meat and poultry inspection and a number of regulatory agencies. The White House a week ago said Lyng will be offered another important position. find it burdensome. In its report, the committee said: "B is satisfying to believe that the most untutored and poorest prisoner can have his complaints or petitions considered by a federal judge, and ultimately by the Supreme Court of the United States." However, it added, "We are, in truth, fostering an illusion. What the prisoner really has access to is the necessarily fleeting attention of a judge or a law clerk." H More than 3,650 cases reached the court last year. Under the committee plan, all except the half-dozen or so that are strictly disputes between two states would go instead to the new National Court of Appeals, to be set up by Congress. Most would be rejected. Some, particularly cases involving conflicting decisions by the federal appeals courts, would be decided by the new court and its rulings would be final. The appeals considered to be most important, some 400 to 450 a year, would be sent up to the Supreme Court for decision. Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, particularly, has suggested that the court is overloaded and steps should be taken to ease its burdens. Justice William 0. Douglas, on the other hand, has said the court actually is underworked— that while the number of cases filed has gone up the number of cases accepted for decision by written opinion has not increased. The new court would have seven members, drawn by rotation for staggered three-year terms from the 11 federal appeals courts. iiiiiiiiiimHimiuiiimmmiiuiiiimiiiiiiiHi AILY NEWS An independent newspaper published "Monday ttirough Friday," except principal holidays, excluding February 22 and Veterans Day.
