A Widening Gap Then has been a long continuous controversy over (lie merit:-: and demerits of Britain's National Health Service — a system of socialized medicine under which everyone is entitled to "free" medical care. Now a thoroughgoing, scientific study has boen made of that Service based on the evidence accumulated during it's 13 years of existence. The author is John Jewkes, a distinguished British economist and an Oxford professor, with his wife servinj; as collaborator. The substance of their findings is that socialized medicine has resulted in a deterioration of the standards of medical care, and has been a massive barrier to progress. For instance, Professor Jewkes and his wife state that the system may have "positively hindered the growth of British Medical Services." They say that "the average American now has more medical services than the average Briton," your busy "schedule.

And they add that medical research in England has been starving, progress in certain kinds of medical education has been discouraged, and centralized government control of medical services has resulted in increasing administrative delay and confusion. e Chamber of and the issue he was attempting companies; and a business tax on ?™* S |.J^}^ d ?hl M ' h £"I d in order to to make so trivial that for a re- manufacturers, distributors, utili- ™ make a success of such a project, ply I simply refer him to tne ties, and services.

Protection For The Consumer Mrs. Elsie Davis Safoulis, formerly of Fayette, now living in A good many people may think that retailing changes little over the years. A man just rents a location, buys and prices a stock of goods, and waits for the customers. Well, it doesn't work that way — not nowadays, at any rate. A recent issue of U. S. News & World Report carries a long article on the "revolution" that is underway in retailing. It cites many examples, among them a trend to mergers, the growth of discount stores, increased self-service, mme night openings, expanding automation, and so on down the list. What's the reason for this upheaval in the retail industry? XT. S. News gives the answer. Consumer income and assets in this country are at record figures — "the public, however, is doing a little less than a record amount of spending in Juneau, Alaska writes us of the dono thjs he wou ', d hgve found National Association for Retard- cent earmarked for slate aid to ed Children, the Iowa Association schools".

Mrs. Swaney was passing through Juneau, on for the dollars spent. The result: intense competi tion, all sorts of new ideas and lures." Here is an almost perfect illustration of the way free enterprise and the free market work. The consumer is boss. Producer and distributor must satisfy his changing wants, needs, whims and fancies — or go out of business. The U. S. News article on the retail revolution see Mendenhall Glacier and other ends on this accurate note: "Everything suggests points of interest.

It's in the federal government. Unfortunately, it's a boom that the taxpayers — including taxpayers-to-be, not yet born — will have to pay. Since January something like 100,000 additional civilian employes have been put on the federal payroll. Federal spending for the year will pass $90 billion — a new peacetime record. And authpritative estimates say that next year's budget deficit will exceed $5 billion at the very least. Some think it may run close to twice that figure. It certainly will — if the next Congress approves any substantial number of the spending bills that will go into the hopper — bills which have nothing whatever to do with our military strength.
