ociation which is to;be formally
iblished at a meeting of interested
sons at 8 p.m. tonight at Lane

y organization run by the meen-
s for their own benefit.
o. remedy the situation of inade-
te medical care, lack of preventa-
medicine, and uncollected doc-
s bills, the cooperative medicine
n was formulated. According to
plan a group of people unite,
a stated amount a year, and in
irn obtain whatever medical serv-
they need.
'he organizing committee for the
n Arbor Health Association has
n working since February to can-
s families, investigate doctors and
w up a schedule of prices. Tenta-
prices are $30 a year per family,
per individual, and $10 initiation
to be used for purchasing perma-
t equipment. Of the income re-
red, $4,000 will go for the salary
a full-time physician, and $2,000
his overhead expenses. It is
essary to have a minimum of 200
illies to carry on this project and
families have already signified
ir interest.
'he cooperative medicine plan
uld be of benefit to the patient,
doctor and the public at- large.
ce the cost of medical care is a
d amount, the expense can lej
rned for as a regular item in the
iget, and the patient does not have
thought of doctor's bills to worry
z when he is ill. The Health As-
Lation will devote a great deal of
rt to preventative medicine, since

the doctor will be hired to keep the
members well, as in addition to cur-
ing their ills. Members can consult
the doctor at the sign of any symp-
toms at no additional cost.
The doctor, who will be entirely
free from interference by the associa-
tion, will be guaranteed a fixed in-
come, and will be relieved of the
drudgery of collecting monthly bills.
The public benefits since coopera-
tive medicine brings medical service
within the reach of persons with low
income, and is an effective method in
spreading preventative medicine.
