FIRST PHASE OF NA TIONAL PLAN:
Carter proposes health program

Court order challenged
by anti-apartheid group,

From AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - The Carter ad-
ministration said yesterday it will limit
its national health insurance proposal
this year to a $10 billion to $15 billion
program to protect all Americans
against catastrophic health costs and
expand some benefits for the aged and
the poor.
No substantial amount of money
would be spent on the program for more
than three years, and even the limited
play would be contingent on enactment
of effective hospital cost containment
legislation, HEW Secretary. Joseph

Califano said yesterday.
CALIFANO SAID the President has
conceded that he cannot get
Congressional approval this year of a
comprehensive national health plan.
Sen. Edward Kennedy, sponsor of a
labor-backed comprehensive health in-
surance bill, rejected President Car-
ter's approach as wasteful and told an
impromptu Capitol Hill news conferen-
ce, "I couldn't support this program."
Califano announced the President's
decision at a speech in New York and
White House officials said many details

of the plan still have to be worked out.
But they said the new money in "phase
one" would be spent primarily to insure
everyone against the costs of
catastrophic illness and expand the
eligibility and benefit provisions of
Medicare and Medicaid.
THE TWO principal health care plans
already in existence cost the federal
treasury about $60 billion a year.
Califano insisted that "the President
remains committed to ,the goal of
providing every American with
coverage for basic health services" and
would outline a comprehensive national
health plan in a message to Congress in
the next few months.
But he shid specific legislation will be
limited to a first phase which he
described as all Congress can digest at
this time and the most the country can
afford given present economic con-
siderations.
AT THE WHITE House, Press
Secretary Jody Powell denied that Car-
ter had abandoned his campaign
promise to press for comprehensive
national health insurance.

criticisms, Powell said, "I don't know
what the senator said, but it's a free
country."
Powell said advocates of broader
health insurance plans are free to sub-
mit them to Congress "and see what
happens."
DURING HIS campaign for the
presidency, Carter promised a man-
datory, comprehensive, and universal
system for paying everyone's health
care bills. He committed himself at the
outset of his administration to come up
with legislation early in 1978.
[t was the President's refusal last
summer to commit himself to
establishing such a system with a single
piece of legislation that led to a split
with Kennedy and organized labor.
Kennedy met privately with 'Carter
on Wednesday. Stuart Eizenstat, the
President's chief domesticecounselor,
said he expected such talks to continue
in an attempt to make the President's
long-range plan coincide as much as
possible with Kennedy's.
But the Massachusetts Democrat of-
fered little encouragement yesterday.
"I share the disappointment of
millions of Americans who relied on the
administration's pledge," he said.
"This piecemeal approach is setting us
on a path that the nation cannot af-
ford."

courses of action for the April Regents
meeting.
"The Regents are banking on the fact
that we will not show up in April," said
Jemadari Kamara, a WCCAA leader.
"We will come back in numbers that
they have never seen before."
Anne Fullerton, who was appointed to
the committee which will prepare a
report on the investment situation for
the Regents, said she will make every
effort to make sure the report is ready
for the next Regents meeting.
Fuller ton and Yvonne McClenney
were appointed to the Senate Advisory
Committee on Financial Affairs
(SACFA) by the Michigan Student

Assembly after the Regents advocated
the creation of two student positions on
the committee. Previously, only faculty
members were allowed on SACFA
WCCAA participants were en-
couraged to "talk up" the issue and
plans were made to have represen-
tatives speak to dormitory residents.
Committees were established by the
coalition at the meeting to deal with the
following areas: dorm organization and
letter writing, information for the
public, a national week of activities
planned by similar groups across the
country, off-campus activities, resear-
ch, logistics for the April Regents
meeting, and fund raising.
