Kennedy Leads Medicare Plea By JHE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Kennedy administration, with the President leading the assault, has carried a plea for its medical care for the aged pro- gram across the nation in an attempt to bring pressure to bear on Congress. The American Med- ical Association goes on nation- wide television tonight to counter the move. While President Kennedy ad- dressed .persons at New York City's Madison Square Gar- den Sunday, Vice President Lyn- don B. Johnson and other admin- istration spokesmen sounded calls for support of medical care for the aged under Social Security at more than a score of rallies across the country. Many listeners, including some ;ray-haired prospective recipients of benefits under the King-Ander- son bill, chanted "We will, we the spokesmen told them to write their congressmen and ui'ge support for the meas- ure. Kennedy, whose speech was carried on nationwide television, predicted that the bill would pass Congress "this year, or, as th'e tide comes in, next year." He noted that Britain adopted similar legislation 30 years ago. The American Medical Associa- tion, which vigorously opposes the Kennedy-backed measure, takes to the "air at 7 p.m. to- night in a network television pro- gram (NBC) designed to answer the administration. The president of the associa- tion. Dr. Leonard W. Larson, blasted the bill and the rallies saying the. U.S. Treasury is being looted "in a massive propaganda blitz designed to pressure Con- gress" into enacting the program. In a statement after the Ken- nedy speech, Larson said: "Giant Madison Square Garden rallies cannot conceal this fact: the King- Anderson bill would force an im- mediate 17 per cent payroll tax increase on workers earning or more and their employ- ers." Larson described. the measure as radical and said it would "give the federal government dangerous power to control medical practice in hospitals." The AMA favors present Kerr-Mills law, which provides for federal assistance to states but leaves administration of a pro- gram of medical care for indi- gents over 65 to the states them- selves. Under the King-Anderson meas- ure, Social Security recipients would be eligible for medical aid financed through a Social Secur- ity payroll tax increase of one- fourth of one per cent on employes and employers. Several thousand persons who could not get into the Garden to hear Kennedy's speech sat outside and .listened to it via public ad- dress system. At one point. Kennedy noted that he had paid several visits in the past two days to his sick fa- ther, Joseph P. Kennedy, in a re- habilitation institute here. "He can pay his the President said. "If he couldn't, 1 would have to, and I'm not as well off as he is." The President said at least half the mail he has received on the bill has been "wholly misin- formed" about its provisions. He urged that doctors through- out the country write to him, to Welfare Secretary Abraham Rib- icoff or the bill's Cecil R. King, D-Calif., and Sen.' Clinton P. Anderson, and get a "concise explanation" of the proposal. Kennedy said the administration (Continued on Page Two) by Estes for storing government- owned surplus grain and since has been transferred to another job. The other, William E.

Freeman has said much of the Estes case remains cloudy because many of the facts died with Marshall. On the eve of the Senate sub- committee's session it was learned that federal investigators were trying to find out if Estes, who is legally bankrupt, has millions salted away in Switzerland and Brazil. The FBI, Internal Revenue agents, the Senate subcommittee and the State Department all were said to be looking into the matter. The Immigration and Naturali- zation Service has given notice to transportation firms that they will be penalized if' they give Estes passage out of the country. A well-placed source said the Senate subcommittee has obtained copies of tax returns filed by Estes and people in government with whom his name has been linked.

Eisenhower _said during his ad-' ministration he proposed legisla- tion- which became the present Kerr-Mills law. Under this legis- lation the federal government elude provision for federal as- sistance in cases of catastrophic illness. He said if this were added needs of most of the elderly could be met.

Those negotiations broke off in Chicago last Thursday after sessios lasting six weeks. The trainmen's demand goes beyond the 10.2 cents an hour rec- ommended by a presidential fact- finding board May 3 for 11 non- operating unions representing employes. The nonopcrat- ing unions originally had sought a 25-cent hourly boost. The railroads expect to decide by the end of the week whether to put into effect economy recom- mendations made Feb. 28 by a presidential railroad commission. The union rejected the commis- sion's report, but the carriers were in accord. Management is considering plans to abolish jobs of fire- men on diesel engines in freight and yard service.
