Heading the witness list today before the Senate Finance iubcommitlee on health was Caspar W. Weinberger, secre- ary of Health, Education and Welfare. Senate Democratic leaders are said to be pushing for quick action on health insurance, and s T ixon on Monday repealed his similar call. He cautioned that with the end of wage-price con- .rols, doctor bills threaten to increase by as much as 22 per cent this year. The President's health plan would rely more on private in surance companies than woulc rival Democratic proposals. Even some of the strongest backers of health-insurance re orm are expressing doubtp that a bill can be passed this year. The House Ways am Means Committee, which mus originate such legislation, is holding hearings on health in surance and thus has not begun work on drawing a bill. But Rep. Wilber D. Mills.

The state would be required to contrac with insurance companies t cover low-income persons. Th Medicare program for the e derly would be continued.
