All persons who are entitled to So-

Hospital insurance provides up
to 90 days inpatient hospital care
each spell of illness; up to 100
days in a skilled nursing home; and
up to 100 home health visits each
spell of illness, Carey continued.
A spell of illness begins the day
you are admitted to a hospital and
ends when you have been out of
the hospital or skilled nursing
home for 60 consecutive days. Thus,
it is possible to have more than
one spell of illness in each calen-
dar year. Generally speaking, all
of your hospital and skilled nurs-
ing home expenses are paid under
hospital insurance after you pay
a $40.00 deductible. After the 60th
day in a hospital and after the 20th
day in a skilled nursing home, you
pay part of the expenses. $10.00 a
day for the stay in the hospital
after 60 days and $5.00 a day for
the stay in a skilled nursing home
after the 20th day. In addition,
hospital insurance provides outpa-
tient diagnostic services. The de-
ductible on this is $20.00 each di-
agnostic study, and then hospital
insurance pays 80% of the cost of
the study. A diagnostic study cov-
ers the period of 20 days outpatient

Medical insurance, which will

whether they are home visits ,of-
fice visits, or visits while you are
in the hospital. Individuals age 65
and over who enroll for medical
insurance will have 80% of their
doctor's bills paid each year for a
cost of $86.00 per year--$36.00 in
premiums plus the first $50.00 of

An American citizen (born in
Massachusetts in 1901) and a grad-
uate of Amherst College (1925), Mr.

tended residence (since,1943). He
said: "12 of the 13 politically inde-
pendent Arab states are Muslim,
KIRKMAN SAYS PATROL STILL
STRESSING SAFETY ON ROADS
Tallahassee Florida Highway
Patrol Director ,Colonel H. N. Kirk-
man in his second weekly report
to the driving public on the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol's Additional-
Traffic Enforcement Program,
stated, "Florida's Highway Troop-
ers are still continuing to act with
swiftness and frequency against
those drivers committing traffic
violations which have caused Flor- i
ida's highway death toll to climb."
"This increased enforcement on
hazardous moving violations occur-
ring in the state's most dangerous
areas has resulted in the arrest of
five thousand, five hundred and
fourteen traffic violators during
the first two weeks of operations,"
The Patrol's new enforcement
technique aimed at curbing the ris-
ino highway death toll, calls for
FHP Troop Commanders state Wide
to assign additional personnel on
pre-selected roads in areas where
the greater number of wrecks have
occurred with specific instructions
to rigidly enforce the law.
'Results of this report indicate a
substantial number of the five
thousand plus arrests, occurred af.
ter sundown and many of these
were vacation drivers.
Kirkman noted that night driv-
ing may be the most comfortable
time to be on the road with less
heat and less traffic, but it's also
more hazardous than daylight driv-
ing. Darkness reduces vision con-
siderably and increases errors in
judgment of speed and distance.
"At night, you can see an unex-
pected object only half as far ahead
as you can see an expected one-
a real problem when you're driv-
ing in unfamiliar territory. Vision
defects-if you have any-are ex-
aggerated at night," stated Col.
The FHP makes these sugges-
tions for pleasant, uneventful night
driving: Drive at reduced speed
with increased alertness. Pass with
extra care, and leave greater space
between you and the driver ahead.
Get off the road or change drivers
at the first sign of drowsiness.
Commander Kirkman concluded
by saking, "After all, what's the
rush? You're on vacation not a
