real political arena tremendous propaganda forces are massed alternative plans are im port a nt only as they disclose a weakening of the opposition None not even the scKiallecl Rockf feller option which combine Social Security coverage with a system of federally financed private insurance seems to have much popular appeal The real battle will be fougn over the KingAnderson bill the one against

general seem to hurting their own cause by th same sort of intransigeance which the a d m i n i s t r ation charged Nothing perhaps coul have been more damaging in public relations sense than th resolution published by some Ne Jersey doctors early this month declaring that they would refu to participate in the care patients under the KingAnderso bill or similar legislation The AMA however
