Babysitter's suit
dismissed by court

LANSING (UPI)-A babysitter who
cut her hand banging on a door after
being locked out by her rebellious
charges cannot sue their parents for
failing to install safety glass, the
Michigan Court of Appeals ruled
yesterday.
The decision upheld an Ingham Coun-
ty Circuit Court ruling dismissing the
suit brought on the girl's behalf against
the family involved and their landlord.
ACCORDING TO THE suit, the
family's 4-year-old son locked the sitter
out of the house while she was shaking
out some rugs. When she demanded
that he open the door, the mischevious
tot only giggled.
The frustrated sitter pounded on the
wood and glass door until a pane broke,
slashing her forearm, requiring a skin

graft, stitches and a two week hospital
stay.
The suit, which sought a total of
$35,000 in damages and costs, claimed
non-breakable safety glass should have
been installed in the door.
"The use and maintenance of or-
dinary glass in a combination wood and
glass front door on a residential house
is a condition from which no
unreasonable risk is to be anticipated,"
the court said.

Small towns appeal
to medical specialists

James

Murray

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP)-The
popular notion that small towns can no
longer lure doctors away from the big
city is contradicted in new research
that shows even medical specialists are
heading for the hinterlands.
"The conventional wisdom, which
initially we had kind of accepted, was
not terribly wise after all," said
economist Albert Williams of the Santa
Monica-based Rand Corp., a private
nonprofit research institute.
As the number of doctors in all
specialties increases, he said, "it is
,becoming more attractive for them to
locate their practice in small towns
than it is to try to squeeze another doc-
tor into the cities."
THE STUDY, published in today's
edition of the New England Journal of
Medicine, said the number of doctors
certified by medical specialty boards
tripled from 1960 to 1977 and small
towns around the country reaped the
benefits.
The rate, that doctors in the five
largest specialties-internal medicine,
o 1C1a

meetings are not made public, per-
sonally, because that would inhibit
discussion-but aside from personnel I
have no objections," he explained.
University General Counsel Roderick
Daane said the arrests of the editors
were made on police initiative, and
there was "not a thing" the University
could or would do about it.
"As I understand the facts, the
arrests had nothing to do with the Open
Meetings Act," Daane said. He said
that the arrests were made for
trespassing, and the only question in-
volved was whether the editors did ac-
tually violate a trespass law.
Meanwhile, during a debate of
Regental candidates last night, Regent
David Laro (R-Flint) said that "in the
abstract" he believed meetings of the
athletic board should be open to the
public.
When the issue of open meetings
came before the Regents several years
ago, he said, they feared it would hurt
the University's ability to run efficien-
tly. That has not happened, he added.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
reiterated the University policy that
only Regents meetings should be open
to the public, while challengers Stuart
Hertzberg, a Democrat, and Kurt
O'Keefe, a Libertarian candidate, said
the meetings should not be closed.

surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics-
gynecology and.radiology-moved into
small towns during the period "is a par-
ticularly striking phenomenon," the
study said.
The researchers studied the
distribution of certified specialists in 23
states for the years 1960, 1970 and 1977.
In 1960, less than a third of towns with
20,000 to 30,000 residents had doctors
representing all five of the largest
specialties, the study said. But 17 years
later, that figure had more than doubled
to 70 percent.
SINCE THE number of doctors is ex-
pected to increase by 30 percent by
1985, the study predicted "smaller and
smaller towns will acquire specialists."
The study also was conducted by Dr.
William Schwartz 'of Tufts University
Medical School in Boston and
economists Bruce Bennett and Joseph
Newhouse of Rand.
They said the increase in country
doctors seems primarily due to the law
of supply and demand. Many observers
have argued that traditional economic
forces don't operate among doctors,
since they set their own fees and
allegedly can create demand for their
services by encouraging more tests and
procedures.
"We can't rule out the possibility that
other factors, such as the lure of small-
town life played a part," Williams said,
"but we haven't been able to find any
empirical evidence to support it."
He also said cities of more than 50,000
people still attract more physicians
than small towns and still have more
doctors per capita, but proportionately
the number of specialists is growing
more rapidly in small towns.
