"With full understanding and
support, the needs of all for full
health care can be met in our
lifetime," Dr. William N. Hubbard,
dean of the medical school said
Speaking at the last of the
lectures and panel discussions
dealing with the "Social Implica-j
tions of Economic Change," Dr.
Hubbard traced the reasons for
increased costs of medical ex-
pense, and explained why they are
necessary for larger and better
service to the United States'
The total number of visits to
physicians far exceeds past ex-
perience, in spite of the rising
population, Dr. Hubbard said.
There are about three visits per
year. The rate of hospital utiliza-
tion has increased, while the time
of stay has decreased and .the
number of hospital beds has grown
immensely, he said.
At the same time, more money
is spent on medical care. In 1938
four per cent of the disposable
income (income after taxes) was
spent on health care. Now about
5.2 per cent is being spent, an
increase of at least 1.2 per cent in
only 20 years.
About $95 per year per person is
being spent on direct health serv-
ice in the United States, Hubbard
revealed. Of this, $3.6 billion is
spent by government agencies.
A larger volume of service, both
relatively and absolutely, is being
offered by today's physicians and
medical people, he continued.
Dr. Hubbard concluded his re-
view of medical expenses with the
question, "Why are such large
amounts of money being spent on
health care? Other services have
not increased in expense in such a
He listed .these reasons:
Medical care is more effective
in what it sets out to do than it
used to be. The physician has more
agents for assistance in diagnosis
and treatment. Research effective-
ness has increased radically.
The economic and personal
value of health is recognized today
as it has never been before, Hub-
bard said. Few bear the burden of
illness, regardless of their eco-
nomic status, if their disease can
possibly be corrected by known
Health service is assumed to be
one of the rights of mankind, he
emphasized. Throughout the world,
regardless of the wealth of the
citizens, they all are legally al-
lotted full medical care.
Dr. Hubbard attributed this in-
crease in concern for medical
treatment to the growing number
of young and old people in the
MEDICAL CARE IMPROVES-Dr. William Hubbard explained
to a University audience yesterday why more of our money goes to
health care each year, and why the service of doctors has im-
proved so much in the past few

sumers of medical service," he said,!
"and they demand the increase in

factors have contributed to bring-

Prosperity-the economic secur-
ity we have enjoyed for at least
20 years-has also added to the
proportion spent on health. As the1
stability of the country increases,
people feel more at ease to let
their money go to such purposes
as medical care, he claimed.

The term, "medical service" has
several levels of meaning, he
warned, which confuse any at-
temppts to evaluate such levels.
As illustrations, he listed several
such levels of meaning.
One was in terms of prompt,
accurate diagnosis and applied
therapy of disease. Others were
specific disease prevention, and
convalescence, a growing import-
ant concept in medical care, in-
cluding several institutions.
The most challenging and least
developed level is that of health
preservation, a positive notion of
basic responsibility, which is often
the greatest economic challenge.
The costs of medical care will
rise unavoidably as service ex-
pands and improves, he concluded.

By JUDITH OPPENHEIM
"In Mozart's 'Don Giovanni,' recitative-or musical speech with
piano accompaniment-is used instead of dialogue," Prof. Josef Blatt
of the School of Music explained.
The musical director of the opera, which opens at 8 p.m. to-
night at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, went on to say that in
addition to serving the function of dialogue, Mozart's recitative is
some of the most beautiful music in opera literature.
The composer wrote only the bass and vocal parts for the recit-
ative, leaving everything else to be improvised by the conductor.
"Don Giovanni" Is an "opera giocosa" or humorous opera, and
contains many comic scenes, especially those with Giovanni's servant,
Leporello and the peasant, Macetto.
Not To Be Laughed At
Nevertheless, the opening scene, a murder, and later scenes of
damnation are not meant to be laughed at. Prof. Blatt explained that
the tendency to laugh at murder and death is peculiar to American
audiences, and audiences in Mozart's time never displayed this reac-
