More than seven Ann Arbor

Dr. Hawley charged a small
number of his colleagues with
such unethical practices as fee-
splitting, exorbitant charges, un-
necessary surgery and the use of
"ghost doctors."
* , *
STATING THAT most of the
malpractices occur in large cities
rather than small towns, Dr. Wil-
liam M. Brace, senior physician for
men at Health Service, believes
that there is less medical cheating
than formerly.
"Many cases of unnecessary
surgeryused to appear because
of ignorance but now the main
cause is dishonesty," he added.
Dr. Hawley explained that a
"ghost" surgeon, is "some young
doctor starving to death" who op-
erates for a better known col-
"I have heard about ghost doc-
tors in Europe, but have come
across no cases in this country,"
Dr. Brace said.
"Disturbed over patient's infre-
uent complaints, the medical so-
ciety is trying to correct these
abuses," Dr. Warren E. Forsythe,
director of Health Service, said.
According to Dr. Forsythe, med-
ical societies in several counties
and states have organized ethics
committees to investigate com-
plaints. The Washtenaw Medical
Society hanidles all local cases of
medical dishonesty.

CONSIDERING the conviction
of both schools of thought on Uni-
versity student government, how-
ever, it might be entirely possible
for a stalemate to develop with
neither side yielding on its stand.
Although leaders recognize the
weaknesses of the present situa-
tion, they could (find ,so many
disadvantages in any drastic
change that no solution would
be reached.
The suggested change to limited
organizational representation on
SL could be forced by a referen-
dum in the next all-campus elec-
In this event, it would not be
surprising to see a battle shape
up much like the fight over the
form of student government in the
1946 elections which resulted in
SL's birth.
