The 5,760'acre tract, including a fascinating geological lump called the Destine anticline, was leased to Exxon by the federal government for $212 million. After six months of what one official calls boondoggling and red tape, Exxon received a fi- 1 drilling permit from the U.S. Geological Survey office here Wednesday. But that doesn't mean the bump is about to be punctured by drillers hoping for a billion- barrel oil strike--a legal hurdle remains. Yet to come: a decision from U.S. District Court Judge W. Terrell Hodges of Tampa in a Sierra Club suit asking that drilling in Florida waters be Mocked pending further environmental studies. Terrell took the case under advisement after hearing argu ments May 21. "We don't know how long he may sit on it," said R. W. Bybee of Houston, operations chief of exploration for Exxon Co.. U.S.A. "Things like this keep us hanging from hour to lour." WELL COMPLETED The Exxon drill ship Grand Banks, due to handle exploratory drilling, completed an offshore well south of Mobile, Ala., last week.

The study says a conservative cost estimate pf full-coverage plan paying all the bills for hospital and ambulatory services, such as that in clinics and doctors' offices, would be from $8 billion to $16 billion. If a plan were enacted calling for users to pay a flat 25 per cent of their expenses through coinsurance with the national plan covering the rest, the report says the cost would be be- twen $3 billion and $7 billion. It said an even more extensive pjogram including such services as drugs and d e n t a 1 care could push the costs to $20 billion for the coinsurance plan and $30 billion for full coverage. Health insurance plans being considered by Congress carry estimates iip to $40 billion. The Rand report, published todav in the New England Journal of Medicine, comes from a two-year study conducted by Dr. Joseph P; Newhouse and Dr. Charles E. Phelps. senior economists at Rand, and Dr. William B. Schwartz, ohysician- in-chief of the Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston. Order Three Pizzas - Pay For Only Two!
