Adlai Asks National
Health Care Plan.
Advocates Federal Loans, Grants
To Guarantee Hospital, Medical Aid
CHICAGO (R)-Adlai E. Stevenson yesterday proposed a four-
point national health program calling for federal aid to guarantee
hospital and medical care to all Americans.
The Democratic presidential nominee's proposals embraced federal
loans and grants to underwrite full medical and health care through
private plans regardless of ability to pay.
Stevenson Emphasizes States' Right
Stevenson emphasized that administration of the program should
"rest with the states." He declared his opposition to "socialized

Perfect Game Brings
Immortality to Larsen

Rep. Meader
Foreign Aid
Representative George Meader,
in a speech before the Young Re-
publicans, yesterday called for a
foreign aid program with a heavier
emphasis on the stimulation of
free enterprise.
Rep. Meader stated that, al-
though he 'had consistently voted
for foreign aid programs, he would
favor monetary aid of a more tem-
porary nature, and lower trade
barriers blocking a flow of capital.
History Told
Rep. Meader described the his-
tory of a bill he had submitted to
the House in April, 1951, which
would create a commission em-
bodying these principles.
The bill lacked approval of the
House Foreign Affairs Committee
and received no comment from the
State department.
However, Rep. Meader pointed
out that the bill was highly re-
garded by political scientists and
industrial leaders.
The Randall Committee, organ-
ized on roughly the same lines as
the one he had suggested, was
subsequently organized.
Trade Emphasized
However, the emphasis of the
Randall Committee was on pro-
motion of trade, but not the low-
ering of trade barriers.
Foreign, aid, he stated, should
be used as a temporary palliative
in a foreign aid policy, while the
demonstration, and urging of free
enterprise should be of major im-
portance. But the United States
should not be too forceful in an
Sattempt to show other nations the
advantages of free enterprise.
"We can't force our thinking on
any sovereign nation," he said.
"They must make their own de-
cisions. If they want to create their
own system to provide economic
stability, it's their business."
Systems Don't Work
Pointing out that socialistic sys-
tems don't work too efficiently,
Rep. Meader suggested that crea-
tion of private corporations under
United States urging would de-
velop the natural resources of a
country faster than could govern-
ment-owned corporations.
Brazil, he said, was importing
$250 million worth of oil, although
estimates of oil potential in that
country indicated many year's
Money Wasted
Indications are that Uruguay is
wasting money through inefficient
administration of many govern-
ment-owned businesses w h i c h
would operate profitably under
private ownership.
Peru's system of nationally-
owned enterprises became so in-
efficient that an American firm
was requested to advise a way out
of the financial problem.
The result of the firm's advice
-to drop many of the enterprises
-was so successful that the gov-
ernment of Chile employed the
same firm.

Stevenson said the concern of
the Democratic party with the
nation's health is not "an election
year phenomenon" but a long
standing one. He added:
"I am glad to say that most of
the measures adopted by the
Democratic Congress last year were
recommended by President Eisen-
hower and enjoyed bipartisan sup-
port, though it is fair to add that
the President and his administra-
tion had opposed needed actions
on several important fronts fer
three years, reversing themselves
only in this election year."

American League game, had a
major league pitcher gone nine

High Court
1Sees Duty
Of Witness-
preme Court agreed yesterday to
decide the complex question of
whether congressional committees
can compel witnesses to identify
one-time Communists.
Attorneys for John T. Watkins,
Rock Island, Ill., an organizer for
the United Auto Workers Union,
contend the committees thave no
authority to engage in "exposure
for exposure's sake."
Watkins refused to tell the
House Committee on Un-American
Activities in 1954 about former as-
sociates who, in his belief, may
have been Communists.I
,He said they had disassociated
themselves from the Communist
movement long before 1954.
Convicted of Contempt
Watkins subsequently was con-
victed of contempt of Congress,
fined $500 and given a suspended
sentence of one year in jail.
A panel of the United States1
Court of Appeals here reversed
Watkins' conviction last January,
but the panel in turn was reversed
by the full court, which ruled:
"Congress certainly has the
power of inquiry or of investiga-
tion when the inquiry or investi-
gation is upon a subject concern-
ing which Congress may legislate."
Agrees to Pass
Now the Supreme Court, which
opened its fall term a week ago,
has agreed to pass on the case.
The high court did not .hand
down any written opinions today
but noted in scores of cases that
it had agreed or declined to review
A number of other cases in-
volved Communism or Communists
in one way or another.
Thompson Convicted
One of the cases the court will
hear involves three persons sen-
tenced to prison for sheltering a
fugitive Communist party. leader,
Robert Thompson, in a California
mountain hideaway.
Thompson had been convicted
in New York of conspiring to ad-
vocate the violent overthrow of the

Desparmet an Author
Frenchman Desparmet, last year
appointed Counselor of Foreign

He is author of sevral books

Andy Chaudhry, Grad., presi-
dent of ISA and student of inter-
national law will act as chairman
for the discussion.
Chaudhry said that although no
solution to the Suez crisis would
be attempted, most of the audience
should leave with greater insight
and understanding of the difficul-
ties involved.


Problems f
"I have no solution to the prob-
lem we are going to describe,",
Hillary A. Marquard, former min-
ister of health in the British Cab-
inet, said yesterday of his topic,
"British Trade Union Wage Policy
and Inflation" before an audience=
of economic students.
The former Labor Party minis-
ter presented the situation in Brit-
ain today, in which the Trades
Union Council is at odds with the
Conservative Party.
Post-War Rift
Since that time, the wage dif-
ferential between skilled and un-
skilled labor, prompted by labor
shifts to essential areas and the,
resultant "flat rate" raises has
been the source of annoyance to
member unions and one of arbi-
tration by the government.
Some Unions fear that arbitra-
tors might be "got at" by -some
side agency, thereby influencing
their decisions.
'Upward, Spiral'
Thus the "upward spiral" rotat-
ing between wage and price in-
creases and stress on correspond-
ing increases in productivity was
set in motion.
Marquard, one of the, first In-
dustrial Relations men in Britain
summed up by saying, "I think
that we can either have some sort
of wages policy or some unemploy-
