sale)gevery year," explained Jan
Carelli, who now lives in New York but
is in Ann Arbor for a visit.
Mike Rothman, a student, came to
the sale last year and was back again
yesterday to look for some non-fiction
books. "I thought it was worthwhile,
good prices and good books," Rothman
Books available ranged from tex-
tbooksntochildren's stories to Nixon's
The Final Days. Prices averaged
around a dollar for hardcover books, 75
cents for magazines, and 50 cents for

Local health officials are trying to
overcome several social and economic
barriers in an attempt to establish a
hospice in Washtenaw County.
"A hospice program is designed to
aid the terminally ill. It may focus on
home care or in a free standing building
or both," said Dr. Dayton Benjamin,
Director of the Washtenaw County
Council on the Aging.
Dayton organized a conference last
Thursday in Ann Arbor to discuss the
formation of a hospice program in the
county. More than 40 different agencies
and organizations. in the area attended
the conference. .
DR. ROBERT Thompson of St.
Joseph's Hospital and the United Way
of Washtenaw County have formed a 50-
person committee to investigate the
possibility of a hospice program in the
The United Way of Washtenaw
County has allotted $6,000 to look into a
hospice program in the area. Only one
employee of the hospice project, Nancy
Kehoe, is paid for her work. All others
are volunteering on a part-time basis.
"We are in the process of conducting
a county-wide study to enable us to
make some plans and
recommendations for a hospice
program," said Nancy Kehoe, hospice
planning assistant. "Given the
-resources of the community and we will
be able to see what kind of hospice
program will best fit the county's
MANY COUNTY officials say the
biggest obstacle and restriction may be
lack of funds for a hospice program.
"Our present health care
reimbursement policies only consider
the cure and treatment process,"
Kehoe said. "Medicare, Medicaid and
Blue Cross/Blue Shield do not deal with
death insurance. But if hospices display
a good track record, health care
payments might change to support
The hospice committee is divided into
three groups 4 one looking at the
organization of a hospice program,
another assessing the needs and
resources of the community, and a
third studying the financial aspects. By
next spring, after the three branches'
findings are evaluated, an operational
hospice program will be recommended.
Thompson plans to report this program
to the community in hope of support.
HOSPICE DEALS with the physical,
social, psychological and spiritual
needs of the terminally ill and their
families. A team of doctors, nurses,
social workers, psychiatrists,
clergymen and therapists combine
efforts to handle each terminally ill
patient. The program operates 24
hours, seven days a week.
"The concept of hospice is based in
the Hebrew-Christian tradition urging
man to live life to its fullest from day
one until he dies," Benjamin said.
"Hospice helps a person cope with the
idea that they are going to die. There
are trained people to answer questions
and help the patient live his life to the
While hospices have become popular
in the U.S. in the last ten years, the idea
is not new. Hospices in Europe began in
the 17th century and flourish today.
"THERE ARE many new hospices in.
the U.S. and Canada and more are
beginning to develop," said Inge
Corless,'assistant professor of nursing
at the University.
