CITY GLOBEGAZETTE that makes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY APRIL 4 1962 HOME EDITION n ei g h b of s UOc a cppyjThis Paper Consists of Four SectionsSection Ont No 47 Gen Walker charges rr he was a scapegoat Finally appears before solons checking charges of muzzling Britains runaway doctors Regimentation is opposed By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The aver age JEfritish doctor under a re vised pay scale which went into effect last year earns the equivalent in pounds sterling of A British physician may if he treats the allowed maximum of 3500 patients receive up to 906 plus mileage allowances for visiting patients in rural areas and payments for special services An American doctor accord ing to varying estimates can expect a median income of from to a year The difference in earnings does not alone explain the fact thatBritain lost 749 doctors to the United States in the five year 195660 according to data published in the current issue of the British Medical Journal Even less explicable are the losses to countries where doc tors presumably can expect less than they would earnhere over the same five years a loss of 1071 to Canada 1060 to Australia 202 to South Africa 184 to New Zealand 145 to Southern and 119 to Northern Rhodesia British hospitals have few doctors under the age of 40 some have hone Excellent conditions and equipment are generally con sidered motivation for the young doctor to come to the United States But probably the biggest impetus is furnished by the Na tional Health Services lack of flexibility and the difficulty of getting out of the service once in A possible explanation of the phenomenon the doctor out Dr John Scale consul tant in medical economics and health services said recently is that practice in the National Health Service is relatively un attractive to young doctors economically p r o f e s sionally and idealistically More than 500 doctors are leaving Britain each year for the United States Australia Canada and fjew Zealand This wholesale migration is leading to the importation of hundreds of foreign doctors One estimate puts nearly half the internships and residencies in Britain in the possession of about 4000 nonBritish doctors most of them from India and Pakistan By way of parenthesis a shortage of nursesis beginning to be anticipated as well In 1960 the number of student nurses fell for the first time in some years Student nurses re ceive from to a year from which they pay for board and lodging if they live in A trained staff nurse earns only a year maximum except for those in mental hospitals There would appear to be no doubt in Britain about the over all popularity of the billion ayear National Health Service Even among most doctors it is well regarded though with reservations about earnings and bureaucracy The London More than 20000 general practitioners in England and Wales and nearly 2500 practi tioners in Scotland were in the service as of a year ago Only between 500 and 600 in England and Wales remained exclusively in private practice About 97 per cent of the British popula tion uses the health service But the dark underside of NHS revealed by the depar ture of doctors must give pause to those in this country who urge greater regimentation of health services for the doctor here already is acute GEN EDWIN WALKER WASHINGTON A Walker former Army major gen eral told investigating senators today he was a scapegoat of an unwritten policy of collaboration and collusion with the internation al Communist conspiracy The Army veteran lashed out at all officials from the President down in an appearance before a special Senate investigation into charges that antiCommunist ac tivities of military leaders have been muzzled With this nations survival at stake our armed forces are para lyzed by our national policy of no in and retreat from victory Walker said I myself am a victim of this no win policy I was charged with nothing I have been found guilty of nothing I have been punished for nothing Walker was relieved of com mand of the 24th Army Division in Germany last year and admon ished after his troop indoctrina tion program came into contro versy Nicholas Erbe gave up much too easily DES MOINES UPI Wil liam H Nicholas said Wednes day that G o v Norman Erbe gave up too easily in efforts to have the state put out tour ism booklet and charged that the reason given by Erbe for dropping the plan was father Erbe gave up too easily to the Democrat from Dubuque who objected to the booklet Nicholas said in referring to State Sen Andrew Frommelt Ffommelt charged the proposed brochure could be used as a political gimmick during elec tion year Nicholas who will oppose Erbe in the June 4 primary for the Republican nomination for governor said he thinks a tour ism booklet is needed for Iowa and he offered suggestions for ways to get it printed Nicholas former lieutenant governor and now a member of the highway commission said he couldnt care less if Erbes picture was in the 22 page booklet but said it would be bet ter not to in clude the Gov e r n o rs pic ture because that w o u 1 d d a t e the book A pro NICHOLAS posed color picture of Erbe was Frommelts chief objection Nicholas 69 Clear Lake made his comments at a news conference breakfast He said it was the first of a series of meetings he plans with news men and promised to reveal his plan for property tax relief at a news conference next week Nicholas said he and his son inlaw all turkey farmers would be willing to pay for 5000 booklets and give 4000 of them to the tourism committee Nicholas was reminded that Erbe had also said he couldnt care less if the governors pic ture were in the proposed book He replied that Erbes rec ord hasnt proved he couldnt care less because he has spent about a thousand dollars to get his picture out over the state Nicholas referred to 8by10 inch prints of Erbe which the governor had made at state ex pense to fill requests for pic tures from various persons and groups in Iowa When this prac tice came under attack Erbe reimbursed the stale with personal check last Au gust for the pictures which cost each Personally I dont think a picture of himself in the book let will do Erbe any goodbe cause it does no good to see the governors pictures sent out at taxpayers expense Nicholas said He showed newsmen sev eral promotion publications from other states and said he had not been able to find pictures of governors in any similar mate rial from other states N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES UN bond victory seen WASHINGTON Sen George D Aiken R Vt predicted that a bipartisan compromise worked out on the U N bonds proposal would pass by a sub stantial margin despite unexpected opposition within Republican ranks complaining of a Surrender to the White House He told newsmen he expected some battles over amendments to limit President Ken nedy s authority to help the United Nations but the compromise with some acceptable changes eventual ly will pass the Senate Cuban invaders award verdict IIAV AN The government prosecutorrie mandmg the most severe punishment our laws

the New Golden Hotel tire still is undetermined pending removal of wreckage Twentyone persons are missing but many of these are believedto be guests who left town with out leaving word The Army found he had made derogatory statements about prominent Americans including President Harry S Tru man and Eleanor Roosevelt widow of President Franklin D Roosevelt Walker subsequently resigned rom the Army and refused retire ment pay He is now living in Texas and is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for gover lor of that state Walker blamed his removal rom command and admonition upon President Kennedy saying The Chief Executive was both prosecutor and judge The press reported without contradiction hat the President directed Secre ary of Defense Robert S Mc Namara to start the investigation and that the President also re viewed and approved the Armys Bindings Earlier he had listed the Presi dent McNamara Secretary of the Army Elvis Stahr Jr and Army military heads in Europe as re iponsible for these actions Gen Bruce C Clarke head of US Army forces in Europe di rected Lt Gen Frederic J Brown as an acting inspector gen eral to investigate and report on he Walker case General Browns report re portedly pursuant to its approval by thePresident oral admonition bj General 12 1961 Walker said Walker protested any censor ship of citizens or soldiers de fense or offense against enemy propaganda and said the Walker case showed Hyhat wai happening It is evident that the real con trol apparatus will not tolerate militant antiCommunist leader ship by a division commander he said Walker read slowly fronrt a 32 page prepared statement which disputed most charges against him and lashed out at his critics The result of what happened to me is that there is today no effective program of psychologic al warfare training in the United States armed services Walker said Family right at home Vacant apartment wasnt CEDAR RAPIDS landlord drove by a supposedly vacant apartment he
