Far too many voters to America,

up their heritage by failing to vote

only about 60 per cent of eligible

This da also true here in Perquimans

primary elections but when it comes
time for the general elections there
is a definite lack of interest. Last

the government about a bitKon a
The Conservatives have amended
the program somewhat, requiring pa
tients to pay half the cost of such
items as false teeth and glasses. How
ever, consumption of tax-paid bills
and medicines is rifling steadily and
hospitals are jammed, and have long
waiting lists, with people who are
dn need of non-emergency operations.
The most surprising thong so far is
the report, by American reporters,
that the average doctor is going along
with the socialized medicine program.
The doctors and professional (medical
associations fought the program Ut
terly before it was instituted. After
it was initiated, they tried unsuccess
fully, to get doctors to boycott it and
to stir up agitation among the public.
Today there is no such talk, nor is
medicine losing out as a popular pro-!
fession. Medical schools, despite what
was said, are packed.

While baseball is still America's,

In 1950 only, nine of the 16 major
league teams made money. The story
for 1951 was even worse, with 1952 1
no better. In 1950 the New York,
Yankees made more money than any
other team: 497 thousand dollars.
The Boston Braves lost more money
than any other team: 316 thousand
Gate receipts alone are not enough
to keep a team going.. Selling radio
and television rights and peanuts,
hot dogs, and other concessions keeps
some teams from going in the red.
The Yankees are an example, in that
they made $416 thousand from radio
and television rights and $441 thous
and from the sale of peanuts, hot
dogs, etc ' .
r. Baseball players are well paid by
the standards of other businesses, and
that means the costs of running a
baseball team are high. The average
salary in the major leagues today is
over 13 thousand as compared with
less than half this amount in 1943.,
(Baseball attendance has been sup
ping in both the major and minor
leagues, and moat observers place the
blame on television. The drop in in
come from gate receipts is partially
made up in the majors by selling tele
vision rights. In the minor leagues
attendance is off 33 per cent and there
' is no compensating income from sell
ing TV rights.

American reporters in Great Brit
ain have consistently reported over a
period of many months that Winston
Churchill's Conservative . government
will not dare attempt to abolish the
free medicine program wMm the'
Labor Party inaugurated several
years ago. The program, which lis a
form of socialized medicine, has prov
ed to be vastly popular in England
: and no 'leading politician would re
main in office long $f he advocated
abolition of it, ,.: $t: .......
This is an interesting situation, es
pecially Sn view of charges by Con-
servataves that the program is Inef-
f ftaently handled and that lit is- prov
ing too costly for the government
Some Conservatives even say the tost
of socialized medicine will eventually
bankrupt the government.
Laborites, on the other hand, ridi
cule thas -suggestion. One thins- fs
clear. After nearly four years, there
is no agitation in Great (Britain to
return medical care to .private prae
Jfafaonem. About 80 pet. cent of all
family doctors are now doing part
time or full-time duty in the National
Health Service and boof18 of Health
