Iowa legislature de veloped Wednesday when tlie house voted 49 to 36 to place a limit on the fee a physician might charge for a premarital blooct test The senate previously had passed the bill without a medical ceiling Two years ago the house ap proved a marriage health bill with a S2 maximum fee provision and the bill died in the senate committee after the medical pro fession came out against the

its adoption as a safeguard against those few unscrupulous doctors would charge all that the traffic will bear V The amendment reaci physician shall charge more than Sa for any one examination including ail laboratory tests in connection therewith That was interpreted by ncr and Representative James F Stanek D authors of the amendment as meaning that the maximum blood test Jecs which would be allowable in marriage would total or S5 a person Representative Herman Knud son R one of the sponsors the original bill said it would be a serious mistake to approve a medical fee ceiling The doctors as a jtroup have enough sense to realize that a marriaffc establishes a home and potential customers as lonjr as that family lives he declared Besides if it becomes a prac tice of the profession to charec exorbitant ices public senti ment would kilt the law in mighty short orOcr Agreeing with Knudson Rep resenlatne J JJ Gardner R Lis a physician said When you get stung once you usually dont go back Representative G H Kecney R Mallard asked defeat of the amendment because it would tend to standardize the fee at S3 a person whereas most physicians would charge much leas than
