TljE WASHINGTON TIDIES, TUESDAY, MARCH 14' 1,916.
Federation Statement .Says It
, Would Mean Next to Noth
ing to U. S. Workingman.
Vigorous opposition to tho effort In
somo States to forno a system of com
pulsory health Insurance on waire-earn-cro
by legislation I expressed In on
exhaustive statement Just Issued by
the National dMc Federation throtwh
Ralph M. Knsler, chairman of 'tho ex
"This proposed lcRislotlon-avowedly
as a cure-all for helpless poverty Is
pressed." Mr. Eaalcy declared, 'without
' rejrard to tho opposition to preclpltato
action by ornanlxed labor, tho only
channel through which tho wace-oarn-er'a
voice can bo heard, and without
adequate investigation of what Is be

tary agencies at this time."
Xdvocatncs of compulsorv health In
surance. Mr. Easlev writes, have point
ed, to Germany and Great Britain as
, wumtrtes wherein tho problem has been
completely solved and no additional
problems created thereby.
Hardships Created By It.
Opposing this expression, Mr. Kauley
says: "As a matter of fact, tho com
pulsory, mo thod In Great Britain, which
supplanted a steadily progressing vol
untary system, has not brought the
umount of relief expected, whllo It has
undoubtedly created hardships.
"Tho benefits arc so small that to tho
American workingman they would mean
next to nothing. Tho wholo schemo of
tho British act went Into effect only
eighteen months before tho war, leav
ing the outenmo in many placoa prob
lematical. "Even In Germany, whero tho citizen
is accustomod to regulation and disci

ment In all matters', the. compulsory ar
rangement Is admittedly still in the ex
"In democratic Franco effort to de
velop compulsory invalidity insurance
brought such resistance on tho part of
o large proportion of the workers that
tho government was unable to securo
enforcement of the measure Could wo
succeed hero is a question of moment.
Operating At Risk of Loss.
"American insurance companies, which
in the last lour years have been ex
perimenting tentatively In health Insur
ance, aro doing so at a considerable risk
of loss, which will continue nntll they
can secure sufficient statistical date to
enable them to develop that field on tho
(.ound principles of other lines of insur
ance. "In dealing with anv of tho latter.
an Insurer has cholco as to the amount
to which ho will insure, ho can drop
out at anv time for ono cause or on
other, and he pays a rato based on
the average of risks incident to tho In
surable class In which ho Is placed by
such clrcumitancc-r as Bgo or hazard.
Gives Insurer No Choice.
"His stato Insurance schemo. on the
contrary, gives him In theso respects
no cholco. In all particulars the law Is
laid down for him. lie can and must

Accorded to all the insured who fall

burdens aeM- from the financial. Ills
relations with the public authorities,
his employer, his benefit society, his
doctor, and the weaker members of
society havo all been chanced."
U. S. PROSPECTING
FOR OIL IN OHIO
Examination Being Made Near
Wooster By Survey.
An examination of the Wooster, Ohio,
oil and gas field was made by C. A.
Itonlne, of tho United States Geo-
logical Survey, .to determine wheth
er there is a relation between local
antlcljnes and syncllnes in the Clin
ton sand and the presenco of pools of
oil and gas, and, If not, to find what
condition determined the location of
The gas is found to occur nlor.g tho
crest and sides of a sharply folded
anttollno pitching to tho southeast
and Is confined entirely to the fold.
Kmall nuan titles of oil are found
along the flanks of the anticline, ana
a fairly large pool of oil crura closa
to it. southeast of the Kas field.
The most promising area for gas
wells Is along the supposed north
westward extension of the Wooster
anticline. In sections ono and two
Plain townuhip. but it Is clearly set
forth by the survey that the oxten-
'slon of the axis of this anticline Is
hypothetical, and, oven If it extendH
into this new territory, its exact lo
cation cannot now bo determined.
No one should be encouraged to make
cuch a test unless he has the capital
and can afford to take what may bo

success or failure.
The report on the Anticlines In the
Clinton sand near Wooster nnd their
rotation to the presence of oil and
