calling for concerted action against terrorism but allowing for nations to take unilateral action when neces sary They met as Japanese authorities investigated the firing of homemade missiles by anti summitsaboteurs During their first meetings together the 12th economic sum mit was dominated by non economic concerns terrorism and nuclear safety Aides drafted and agreed on a terrorism statement said Reagans spokesman Larry Speakes Such a statement was no foregone conclusion considering the opposition some European leaders expressed after last raid into Libya Another summit statement concerning the Soviet handling of the Cherbonyl nuclear accident last week was in the draft stage at the Akasaka Palace Aides worked overnight on the terrorism and nuclear statements as the leaders began their first full day of the 12th summit of western industrial nations Con cerning the terrorism statement Speakessaid I think the tone would be addressing the issue of terrorism in a very direct manner It would give the opportunity for the allies to work in a concerted manner to combat terorrism and at the same time it would not preclude unilateral action to combat ter rorism so its a balanced state ment its a good approach Were very pleased with The question of unilateral ac tion has long been a sticking point as the United States attempted to organize concerted action against terrorist targets such as Libya French leaders in particular have been leery of agreements which tied their hands Several hours before Reagan See SUMMIT Page 9A UTMED The battle lines are Private doctors attack UTMB plan as infringement on free enternrise ORABAUER ByPANDORA BAUER News Staff Writer GALVESTON With some issues opposing lines are verv clearly drawn University of Texas Medical Branch administrators say their new group practice plan UTMED is a simple attempt to make the best health care possible available to all Physicians unat tached to the medical branch call it a statesupported infringe ment on free enterprise Though in the making for more than three years UTMED was unveiled in response to Governor Mark Whites executive order calling for state employers to cut budgets by 13 percent accord ing to program director Dr James Guckian The economics of medicine are changing says the UTMB vicepresident for medical and professional affairs We dontparticularlylikeit but itsa Private physicians dont like it either Members of the Galveston County Medical Society have formed a special ad hoc committee to discuss the role of UTMB in the community1 seeking formal meetings with UT System repre sentatives and the UT board of regents A Statement of Concern From fhe Galveston County Private Medical submitted as formal opposition to UT MED charges that the longterm impact of UTMBs outreach program is tantamount to predatory While Guckian says There is obviously conflict whenever a new competitor enters the private physicians say the competition is only temporary Consumers would initially have more choices but the tax sub sidy provided through state funding would allow UTMED physicians to compete at prices significantly below the says the Statement of Concern Eventually private health care provi ders could be forced out of business Dr Ben Raimer a pediatrician in private practice and a past president of the GCMS says UTMB administrators have put the medical branch and the private health care community of Galveston Countyon a collision Dr Paul Cunningham who practices cardiology at St Marys Hospital says The entire private and personal care system that has served the community for over 100 years is in jeopardy as a result of UTMED Dr Harry Kelso senior member in a fivephysician internal medicine practice adds that the GCMS is not fighting to protect onlydoctors The citizens of Galveston Kelso says are being asked to bear the entire states responsibility in addressing UTMBs financial woes Local taxes are paid by private physicians not only on their of fices but on costly medical equipment that the state doesnt buv for us Kelso says UTMB pays no property taxes nor do about 40 percent of UTMB employees who reside off the he arid Raimer says another danger is the possible loss ofUTMB itself Physicians who chose UTMB as a means of continuing educa tion and research Raimer says may decide to go elsewhere if forced to see clinical patients that were not part of the original neal And if UTMB continues to recruit mainstream patients away Weather AREAFORECAST Partly cloudy through Tues day with highs iu the upper 70s and a low
