Insurance rate increase caused
by deficit in 'marrieds' category
by Polly Howes
North Carolina Blue Cross and Blue
Shield's insurance rate increase for married
UNC students was necessary because that
insurance category was losing money, Dr.
James A. Taylor, director of the Student
Health Service, said recently.
Beginning Aug. 15, premiums for the
husband-wife category in the University's
plan rose from $44.63 quarterly to $89.45
quarterly. Rates for the husband-wife-family
group went from $63.19 quarterly to $89.45
quarterly. The single student rate stayed the
same at $36 semi-annually.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield officials had
said last April that a 39.3 per cent rate hike
would be necessary in 1975 because the
University's student insurance plan had been
operating at a deficit.
Although the single student category of
the University's insurance policy was
showing a surplus, the varried student
category had paid out more money in claims-

than was received in premiums, E.C.
Thompson, vice president of planning for
Blue Cross, explained recently.
During the 12-month period ending July
1975, the organization lost $94,484 on the
married student group, Thompson said.
Total expenditures of this category were
$270,971, while total income for the same
period was $176,487.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield, a non-profit
organization, has handled the University's
student insurance plan for two years, selling
approximately 3,000 student policies last
When authorizing the organization to set
up the University's insurance program, a
student health insurance committee,
composed of students, faculty and
administrators, asked that three policy
categories be established: (1) unmarried
students, (2) husband-wife and (3) husband-wife-family.
Although the husband-wife option is not
offered by-Blue Cross and Blue Shield to
individual policy holders, the committee
requested the category be included in the
University's group plan.
The committee's plan was put into
operation, and after a year, Blue Cross and
Blue Shield determined that the single
student group was showing a net surplus
while the married student categories were
losing money, Taylor said.
"The losses that were being experienced in
the group were being generated by the

Through its individual departments, the

United Fund Director Betty Hutton said
The goal of the local drive, which ends

The University is divided into two units
for fund-raising purposes, Hutton said.
Professors and employees within the units
have been urged to contribute to the United
Fund, she said.
Due to incorrect information given to the
Daily Tar Heel, the name of one of the
Valkyries was incorrectly reported as
Particia Ann Thompson. The correct name
is Patricia Ann Williams.
The health division which includes fields
of medicine, basic science, hospital
administration and animal laboratories has
raised more than $ 1 5,000 of its $26,720 goal,
Hutton said. Health division fund-raising is
headed by Dr. Jack Wier of the pharmacy
The academics division has raised more
than $20,000 of its $39,285 goal, she said,
adding that the departments of physics,
classics, and political science are raising the
most money within the academic fields.

married students and their families, and a
substantial rate increase was required
whether the rates were composited or not,"
To distribute the rate increase equitably,
the committee on student health insurance
then requested several changes in the
University's group policy, Taylor said.
The committee requested that the single
student category be completely separated
from the married student group and that the
husband-wife category be eliminated.
Taylor, who said the committee had made
fair requests, cited several reasons for the
rate and category changes. "Single students
were heavily subsidizing the married
students," he said. "Because so many services
were provided for single students at no cost
by the Student Health Service, they made
few claims on their policies."
Funds from the single student group were
being used to reduce the married student
deficit, he added.
By separating the single student group
from the married student group, those
making the most claims would pay the
higher rates, he said.
The decision to combine the husband-wife
category with the husband-wife-family
group was based on statistics showing that
claims totals for both groups were nearly the
same, Thompson said.
"The persons getting the most out of the
insurance in terms of claims were the female
spouses rather than the children, Taylor
explained. "Of last year's claims, only 16 per
cent were for juveniles, while approximately
34 per cent were for female spouses.
"The current married student rate is still
very favorable when compared to the
customary family rate paid by typical Blue
Cross and Blue Shield group family
subscribers in the Chapel Hill area,"

United Press International
Court will not approve
mercy killing for Quinlan
MORRISTON, N.J. The parents of Karen Ann Quinlan cannot
pull the plug on her respirator and let her die, New Jersey Superior
Court Judge Rober Muir Jr. ruled Monday.
Only Karen's doctors may decide whether there is any reason to
keep using the respirator, even though Karen's brain has been
virtually destroyed by nearly seven months in a coma, Muir said.
"The single most important temporal quality Karen Ann Quinlan
has is life," Muir said in his 44-page opinion. "This court will not
authorize that life be taken from here."
In rejecting the parent's plea that 21 -year-old Karen be allowed to
"die with dignity" rather than linger on, the judge agreed with state
attorneys that pulling the plug would be homicide under New Jersey
"Humanitarian motives cannot justify the taking of a human life,"
Muir wrote. "The fact that the victim is on the threshold of death or
in terminal condition is no defense to a homicide charge."
Muir said he was issuing the decision "with prejudice," which
means that the Quinlans may be re-plead the case in Superior Court
on different grounds. They may, however, appeal his decision to a
higher court a course of action the parents of the comatose woman
have not yet decided on.
In a new conference, Karen's mother, Julia, said, "We haven't
decided whether to appeal. We want to sit down with our two
children and discuss this."
illegal Gulf contributions acknowledged
WASHINGTON A former Gulf Oil official acknowledges
making allegedly illegal campaign contributions to at least 15
senators and congrecmen, it was learned Monday.
Gulf was convicted in 1973 of making illegal contributions to the
1972 presidential campaign of Richard M. Nixon, and the campaigns
of Rep. Wilbur Mills, D-Ark., and Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash.
But UPI learned the list of alleged recipients has been expanded to
at least nine present and former senators including presidential
hopeful Fred Harris, six present and former representatives, former
Kansas Gov. William Avery and Pennsylvania's "Mr. Republican"
The allegations were made in an Oct. 30 statement to the Securities
and Exchange Commission by Frederick Myers, who retired in June
as Gulfs legislative coordinator in Washington. Myers worked 47
years for Gulf, the last 16 in Washington.
Gulf had no immediate comment.
Myers said he delivered sealed envelopes "maybe four or five or six
times a year" to the Capitol Hill offices of senators and
representatives between I960 and 1972 when the Watergate
prosecutor began to probe Gulfs campaign activities.
Myers said he made 20 trips outside Washington to deliver sealed
envelopes that were addressed with one person's name, usually the
elected official or a campaign aide.
Senate ratifies U.S.-Soviet ABM treaty
WASHINGTON The Senate Monday ratified a treaty
negotiated by President Richard M. Nixon in Moscow in 1974
immediately before his resignation limiting the United States and
Soviet Union to a single anti-ballistic missile defense site.
The Senate approved the accord by a vote of 65 to 15, easily
obtaining the required two-thirds majority of those present and
Under the agreement, the United States will be limited to a single
ABM field at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota, while the
Soviet Union will maintain similar, anti-missile defenses around
Both sides can give notice to the other in the 1977-1978 that they
would like to switch the arrangements, with the United States
constructing a single ABM defense around Washington and the
Soviet Union building a similar defense around one of its strategic
Judge enters innocent plea for Hearst
SAN FRANCISCO Over objections from Patricia Hearst's
attorneys, a federal judge Monday entered an innocent plea for the
newspaper heiress to charges she robbed a San Francisco bank and
ordered her trial to begin on Dec. 15.
U:S. District Judge Oliver J. Carter entered the plea for Miss
Hearst after her attorney, Albert Johnson, refused to let her plead,
contending she was not mentally competent in spite of the judge's
ruling last Friday to the contrary.
Carter said the trial date would not be binding if the defense brings
in "convincing proof along the way that she is not competent."
During the hearing, Miss Hearst sat quietly occasionally talking to
her defense attorneys but not acknowledging the presence of
members of her family.
