Creek Bottom Comments By Reuben Kr'oet'y an article by Doctor i.i/iyd Da we was published, telling W'IV he quit socialized medicine in England, and came to the U.S. to b'iid a private practice. Doctor Dawe received his degrees of medicine and surgery in 1948, and interned at the Connaught hospital, London. After four years as a medical officer in the British Army, he entered practice under the British National Health Service. His problems and frustrations were soon upon him. Doctor Dawe stated, "I witnessed the unbelieveable waste, interference, and bureaucratic regimentation that have accompanied Britain's unwieldy social experiment." Doctor Dawe vividly described the jam-packed condition of his office, full of people who came to see the doctor because it was "free". He told of a 24-year-old women patient in dire need of surgery. It took FOUR HOURS of telephoning to finally get her into a hospital in the London area. In most such hospitals the crowded wards had still more beds or cots cluttering the middle isles. He futhermore described the everlasting interference by the political bureaucrats in regard drug restrictions, fixed fees, expected number of patients to be seen per working day, so on and on. Doctor Dawe also tells of paying Government imposed "fines" for trying to do what he personally thought was right for a patient. Anxious hours seeking means by which to care for the critically ill. He saw Govern ment grants to hospitals frittered away on television sets and pretty new carpeting. Doctor Dawe tells a humorous (and also disgusting) incident of a "patient" who asked the doctor POUNDS of surgical absorbent to "prescribe" for him, TEN cotton. Dr. Dawe asked,"what on earth do you want all that absorbent eotton?" No, the patient didn't have a saddle horse with a bad barbed wire cut. His reply was,"I want to rc.-.tuff my sofa". If any of you dear old folks around here still think you want Federal "medical-care-for-the-ag ed", we think you should go to a cranium doctor and have your head examined. c-b-c I*. ha', been said that even if n I inn could unde stin 1 a woman, he still wouldn't believe it. * Iomr -jakers meet The Westfield Hometnakers mel '' onday evening.

A perfect example of the sky wide difference bo tui -L n our kind of government and government by dictator was provided by the recent congress of the Soviet party in Moscow. Famous men - former Premier Malenkov and former Foreign Minister Mol. tov among them — were read out of the part, which means disgrace at the best and extinction by firing squad at the worst. Stalin was denigrated, his embalmed body removed from the Lenin tomb, the city of Stalingrad te named, and the name Stalin removed from the face of the nation. In Russia, in sum. there's no room for past leaders. In this country by contrast, we have a President in !:HU:»!nU::»H!»nK:»:iUH:l:»:::H:»!::i::s::iUK office --• and we have three living former Presidents, Hoover, Truman and Eisenhower, who gain stature and the respect of the nation as time passes. They differ in many ways in their views, bvt all are on friendly terms. All speak their minds freely. All have their pub lie followings. All enjoy high standing and public admiration. None is in any danger of being exiled to a U. S. style Siberia, or being officially denounced as a t 'aitor or a villain and liquidated. Well, it couldn't happen in Moscow. So, as the French say, in another connotation, vive la difference! And, now, think of what has made and what maintains that difference — government in which the people are the masters, not the servants. innnuHinsmmnniiiHiiiB Do You Recall 81 20 - 30 - 40 Years Ago 20 Years Ago —.

Finch, Elsewhere in this iss'-e of the Leader you will find the menu for the tenth annual wild game dinner, which is a yearly p ujeu nf Dr. Eugene Garbee. With all due respeil to Dr. Gar bee's prowess in the kitchen, we still remember the color of the complexion of our Independence publisher friend Reeves Hall, the day after he attended one of the dinners a few years ago. It took him several days to regain his natural color. These dinners are definitely not for those with weak stomachs. In fact, we're still trying to digest that French-fried grasshopper we were brave enought to eat last year. But, we wouldn't miss this dinner for the world. Dr. Garbee has a knack for cooking wild game that makes it come out delicious. Finch, treasurers; P. 10. Judd, secretary.
