T. FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Puny, Pointless, Political Examining the President's billion-dol'lav "war on poverty" against the background of the combined Fed'eva,l, state, local ,and private social welfare efforts that add up to more tlmn $100 billion a year, shows t to be puny, pointless and political "It would be better for the general wel- fare," says the Council of State C,hambers of Commerce in its an.alysis, "to reduce deficits, minimize the inflationary buildup, and pro- tact the value of the $100 billion wenich is already being spent to fight the causes and lieve the effects of poverty." The Cotmil's study, prepared by Eugene F. Rinta, director of research, goes an to say: "The proponents of the aTRi-poverty legisla- tion attempt to convey the imlression that poverty is of crisis proportion in fine United States and that now at last a massive attack will be made on the causes of poverty. The facts are that the Wapertion of low income families is less now than it tins ever been, and that there has been a constant war on povVty in this country over the years which has been far greater and far more effeefi.'ve than the pending proposal could possibly be, even tlmugh it should be expanded many fold. "In its presentations on the anti-poverty bill the Administration has rbitmrily select- ed a $3,000 family cash income as the divid- lag line between poverty and relative well- being. U. S. Census Bureau surveys indicate there were 9.3 million families comtn'ising 30 million lrsons with an.RuM family in. comes beknv $3,000 in 1962. But is $3,000 cash income an accurate measure of the pov- arty line ".m the United States? Accoling to studies by the University of Michga Survey Research Center reported in the U. S. News and Worm Report of January 20, 1964, a below $3,000 income hardly indicates a con- diffon of poverty in a large lroportion of cases. Here are some of the findings: "(1) In 1962, 45 per cent of the families reporting incomes of $2,000-3,000 range owned their ,homes; md 66 per cent of the lmme owners had no mortgage on their homes. Also, homes were owned by 42 per cent of the $1,000-2,000 bracket and by 35 per cent with cash incomes less allan $1,000. "(2) In 1960, 40 per certt of the families with incomes beow $3,000 owned cars and one-third of the cars had been purchased new. "(3) During the year 1960, among families with incomes less than $3,000, 700,000 famil- ies bought television sets, 500,000 boug, ht rofrigemtors, and 30,000 bought wasing nmchines. "Whether $3,000 or some other level of family inc<nne is accepted as the poverty line, the record shows that considerable progress has been made in reducing the propolon of poverty in this country. On the basis of the proport't0 of families with ca ntnnnes family cash income adjusted to 1962 prices, under $3,000 'has been reduced from 32 per cent of :al'l families in 1950 to 25 per cent in 1955, 21 per cent in 1960, ,and 20 per cent in 1962. This has been accomplished primarily through the growth of the economy under our PrivaCx enterprise system." It slmu'ld be plain to all by raw tat the Government-can do nothing for a man that he cammt do better for himself. 40 Years Ago 1924 Mrs. M.

Yet basically your pro- tection rests on the same simple elements of any con- tract. 1. Offer and acceptance: You must offer to pay for the in- surance, and the company mtmt ,accept you ass proper risk 2. A "eon, sideration": The premium you pay in return for which the company gives you certain protection. 3. A lawful purpose: You cammt insure an unlawful ac- tivity. You may insure yourself against burglary, but a burg- lar cannot ,take out a policy to insure his success. 4. Competency: The parties to an insurance contract must be mertally "competent" to enter it. And, as a rule, anyone who can enter any other can- tract can enter an insurance contract. 5. A special rule: You must have an ",ble interest." You canrmt take out fire in- surance on some old house down the street that you think may go tip in smoke. That , :ou cannot insure it unless you have :some ".merest in it, such as a mortgage or an op- tion to purchase. Nov can you insure the life of just anyone. You can only insure somebody whose life means smething o you--.a close retative, a breadwinner, a partner or the like. (This column is written to inform, no advise.

If this does come to pass, it will largely  be due to the work of Sena- tor Wayne Morse of Ore- gon. While c. V,'. Harder many people hold opinions on the exuressed phil- osophies of the N:,rL;,w:st:rn Senator, it is generally ack- nowledged that as a frmer university dean of law, he does bring to tLe Congres'; one of the most comprehenc've legal backgrounds to he found in either chamber. And lawyers by and large usually believe that the law is the law, regardless of whether they may personally agree with the provisions of a law. Thus, it was quite interesting the other day in the august these tickets These tickets which were torn up, have been officially referred to as "ad- justed." He said every place else, they are called "fixed" and thus his bill spells out that ad- justing is actually fixing. Now perhaps as legislation goes in Washington, this par- ticular bill assuming it gets passed, will prcbab!y not go down in history as a major leg- islative act, yet perhaps this is an instance where history will fail to empt'asize fl:e truly sig- nificant. After all, the main business cf Washingtou is that of mak- ing laws, administering laws, and interpreHng laws. The District of Columbia is governed by Congress, and there are traffic laws.
