Everybody's happy. The patients

ie doctors are paid $4,000 a year,
ich in many cases, is more than
ey made before.
And, having made this pleasant
cord, the Saskatchewan and Man-
ba plan for keeping country doc-
rs in the country by providing
equate support for them, seems
ely to spread, according to an ac-
unt by W. W. Jermane in the
attle Times.
Since America is said toface a
ortage of rural physicians, justas
ese two Canadian provinces did,
r. Jermane believes that an ex-
anation of the Saskatchewan-
anitoba system may be interesting.
1¢ story he tells is contained in
he recent statement by Dr. C.
ifus Rorem of the Committee on
e Costs of Medical Care. The
'w system is built on the payment
rural physicians out of public
nds.” The details of the system
r. Jermane lists thus:
“Thirty-two rural communities of
iskatchewan have solved the prob-
m. Twenty-one physicians are
nployed full time by twenty of the
irty-two interested communities;
e other twelve communities, or,
ral municipalities—the name giv-
1 in Saskatchewan to an &rea
sughly corresponding to the county
the United States—use the part-
me services of seventeen physicians.
i addition, their physicians are em-
oyed on a full-time basis by three
these ‘municipalities’ in Manitoba.
“The system was first established
. Sarnia, seventy-five miles north-
ist of Regina, in 1921.
“Its success led other communities
» imitate it.
“Dr. Rorem says that Saskatche-
an ‘has for some years taken the
ad in Canada in the matter of san-
ation, immunization against conta-
ious diseases and has recently in-
agurated a system by which all res-
lents of the province requiring hos-
italization for tuberculosis may re-
sive both insitutional and medical
are at no direct cost to themselves.
“Municipal physicians, Dr. Rorem
iscovered as the result of his field
irvey, are usually hired when com-
iunities find that their existing med-
‘al services are inadequate or too
astly, or when physicians who pre-
jously served them die or move
way. In several local
hysicians placed before the com-
iunities the alternative of employ-
1g them on an annual salary, or
aving them go to better fields.
In one community, “two private
ractitioners complained that they
rere unable to make a living, while
any residents protested that the
harges for medical services were
jore than they could afford to pay,”
the writer, coming to cases:

of Justice for several weeks.
The first intimation of the existence
of such a system was obtained by
federal authorities here some months
azo with the discovery of a letter in
the pocket of Paul Rubkin, a convict-
ed watch smuggler, in the Manhattan
federal building. Rubkin, with Solo-

from Switzerland and defrauding the
government out of £300,000 in duties.
Rubkin and Pecriman got two years

18 months,
Some time later, however, when the |
federal authorities wanted Rubkin to
confront a new suspect and they sent
to Atlanta for him, it was found that
he was at Fort Wadsworth. He was

Department of Justice agents, nn.
der John Edzar Hoover, chief investi-
gator at Washington, began an inves.
tigation. They learned that other trans-
fers had been made under similar
conditions, However, It was not al-
ways easy to ascertain whether the
transfers had been pald for. Because
of the overcrowded condition of the
penitentiaries at Atlanta and Leaven-
worth, federal prison authorities have
fer as many prisoners as possible to
army detention camps. Nearly 1.500
these camps.
Among other notorious prisoners
who are sald to have obtained trans
fers from Atlanta to army detention
camps is Harry Goldhurst, operator
of a Manhattan bucket shop and
financial adviser of Bishop Cannon
and friend of Samuel Radlow, once
an Intimate of the late Vivian Gordon.
Goldhurst was sentenced to five years
in Atlanta for his bucket shop opera:
