    that one of the criteria of the dialysis panels in the 1960s was the relatively attractiveness of a male patient's wife; the better looking she was, the more likely it was that she would remarry, so her husband was lower on the list than a man with a plainer wife. We heard about this in med school in the early 1970s.
