Spanish rice and a cup of jello

Some 300 Ann Arbor residentsj
last night paid to eat 'a dinner'
consisting of 1/4 cups of Spanishf
rice and % cup of Jello salad.
This main course was supplement-1
ed by day-old bread and powdered
The somewhat meager meal was
billed as an example of a dinner
for a typical family on welfare, by
its sponsors, the state chapter of
the National Welfare Rights Or-
ganization (NWRO).
The money raised at the dinner
will help fund training programs
which would instruct welfare
mothers on family finances and
legal rights.
After dinner, the group was ad-
dressed by a small group of speak-
ers including Kate Emerson and
Luise Bryant, both welfare moth-
ers and members of NWRO.
Mrs. Emerson told the group
that the worst part of being on
welfare is that "we have no con-
trol over our own lives."
She explainned that the ap-
proval of a case worker was needed
before "you get training, get a
baby sitter, move, get a doctor, and
get a job."
Commenting on the meal, most
diners said the dinner was enjoy-
able. They expressed sympathy for
the welfare families but seemed
hesitant about actively supporting
the NWRO.
The dinner was planned as part

of a drive for increased allowances
for welfare families. Last fall, the
Welfare mothers became locked in
a dispute with the Washtenaw
County Board of Supervisors over
their request for additional funds
to buy school clothing for their
children, and for a 25 per cent
cost-of living increase in their
monthly welfare payments.
The supervisors declined to

budget the requested funds, saying,
no money was available. And ear-
lier in the fall, Gov. William Mil-
liken declined to appropriate addi-
tional funds to welfare mothers
also citing a lack of available
Mrs. Emerson criticized resi-
dents of the county for promising
to support the mothers but n o t
taking part in the demonstrations.

"Their support never material-
ized," Mrs. Emerson said.
Organizations participating in
the dinner included the National'
Social Association for SocialE
Workers, and the Community Ad-:
vocates for Welfare (CAW).
CAW sponsored a march in
front of the county Bldg. l a s t
October in support of the wel-
fare mothers requests.

James F. O'Neil, potential candi-

nation, in a speech before the
College Republicans last night.
O'Neil, a member of the State
Board of Education, called for "a
total effort to raise the level of
understanding and reduce the
level of violence in our country."
At the same time, he lashed out
at Hart, who he would probably
oppose, calling the senator a "po-
litical weathervane."
The meeting was attended by
about 25 people, mostly members
of the College Republicans. There

Du Pont wants engineers who want to grow
professionally. And we have great respect for
the guy who'd like to "know more about it" be-
fore he marries a specific kind of job. We even
have a plan to help him.
It's called "planned mobility"-a sort of
intramural job hop. You don't get into a train-
ing program. You get into a job. If it doesn't fit
you, or you it, you get into a second job or a fifth
or a sixth, until you find the one you want to
grow with. It gives you time to decide while
you're broadening professionally.
Ask the Du Pont interviewer about it. Ask
him anything. He was in your shoes very
recently. AnEqual Opportunity Employer (M/F)
