from the state: general assist-
ance, medical assistance, aid
for dependent children (ADC)
and food stamps.
IN ORDER to be eligible for
general assistance, the appli-
cant must be unemployed but
physically able to work. Stu-
dents are ineligible. Compensa-
tion, if granted, depends largely
on marital status, family size
and number of dependents, with
the duration of the aid lasting
until a job is found or about 13
weeks, whichever comes first.
If the 13 weeks passes before
a job is found, an extension is
usually granted.
Medical assistance is just
that: medicaid and medicare.
Amount and duration of assist-
ance, like general assistance,
depends on marital status, etc.
ADC is different from the
others, however, in that chil-
dren that have lost, either by
death, divorce or separation,
the parent that is their greatest

source of support, can receive
the compensation. Very few
males that support their chil-
dren, alone, receive the relief,
according to Oettle.
PERHAPS the most common
type of compensation, especial-
ly among students and others
ineligible for the previous types
of relief, is food stamps.
To be eligible forathesstamps,
one must prove residency, in-
ability to obtain a job (student),
have less than $500 in a bank
account, continuing payments
such as tuition, rent, or insur-
ance and meet the minimal
amount of we ekly income
(about $150).
"Persons have the right to
food stamps if they're eligible-
the courts have said so," says
Oettle, cautioning those who
would'quickly condemn the sys-
"THERE ARE always going
to be dishonest people around-
look at Nixon and Agnew," he

continued. "They (welfare re-
cipients) are people too . .
but some people are going the
opposite extreme: wanting toI
cut back on welfare-it's burn-
ing a lot of people."
Presently, food stamp recipi-
ents pay about 23 per cent of
their weekly income to receive
the stamps. Congress blocked a
proposal by the Ford Adminis-
tration recently that would have
required the recipients to pay
30 per cent.
Congress, however, is trying
to limit the number of students,
dependent on their parents, that
receive food stamps. "A stu-
dent is not eligible for food
stamps if claimed on their
parents' income tax," Oettle
