"It has a ripple effect on other service.s to these groups and sets a dangerous precedent." Callahan, author of a book called "Setting Limits: Medical Goals in an Aging Society," said a vicious cycle has been created in the medical field because people are constantly trying to extend their lives and medical practitioners need pa- tients to test the effectiveness of medical technology. "About 100 years ago, people didn't think heart failure meant there was a need for a heart transplant," Callahan said. "We must decide between need and desire. There is no end to meeting needs because more needs always come along." Kapp said Callahan's assumption that there is ."homogeneity among the elder- ly" is wrong and that giving the Golden jubilarians Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Weyer of Ferdinand will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, April 29, with a Mass at 5:30 p.m. and an open house following until 9 p.m. at the Ferdinand American Legion. The couple requests no gifts. Norbert Weyer and Marie Oser were married on April 25, 1939 at St. Ferdinand Catholic Church by Rev. Gregory Kunkel. The couple has two daughters, Norma J. Long of Jasper, and Betty Wolf of McLean, Va. They have four granddaughters and two great-granddaughters. Mr. Weyer is retired from Jasper Engine Exchange and Mrs. Weyer is retired from Ferdinand Elementary School. DIRECTOR OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION ST.

"Legal governments must treat people fairly," Kapp said. "You can't deprive the elderly because of their age. It violates their due process and their right to privacy in health care deci- sions without government in- terference. ' ' Kapp said other ways to help ration health care "include creating a "comprehensive, universal national health in- surance or national health ser- vice" and continuing private medical care, but forcing both to operate on "tight cost con- trois based on effectiveness," and increase the contributions to medical costs of the elderly with good incomes. The conference was spon- sored by the American Academy of Medical Ethics, the Columbus School of Law of The Catholic University of America in Washington, the National Legal Center for the Medically Dependent and Disabled Inc. and the Horatio R. Storer Foun- dation Inc. Plans for rationing health care coverage for the poor are already being drawn up in the state of Oregon and in Alameda County in California. Officials in Oregon two years ago decided not to pay for transplant operations and have begun ranking medical pro- cedures as to their effec- tiveness. Alameda County of- ficials have said Oregon's move to rationing was an impetus for theirs and that they should have a similar list by summer.
