TWO OTHERS VETOED:
Nixon signs Social Security bill'

SPECIAL! HOT CHOCOLATEj

WASHINGTON (RP) - President
Nixon announced yesterday he is
signing a $6-billion Social Security
and welfare measure but vetoing
two bills aimed at helping the el-
derly.
Vetoed, by virtue of withholding
of presidential signatures, were
amendments to the Older Amer-
icans Act and a proposed law to
set up a new institute to do re-
search on the problems of the
aging.
Of these measures, Nixon said,

"Both authorize unbudgeted and
excessive expenditures and would,
also require duplications or frag-
mentations of effort which would:
actually impair our effort to serve
older Americans more effective-
ly."
Altogether, Nixon has pocket-
vetoed 11 bills passed in the clos-
ing days of the 1972 session. Ad-l
ministration sources said these
actions would forstall spending of'
about $950 million in the currents
fiscal year that ends next June 30.1
Democratic presidential nomi-
nee George McGovern told news-,
men in Pittsburgh that the vetoes;
contradict Nixon's earlier pro-
mises to expand programs of aidj
for the elderly.
Bernard Nash, executive direc-
tor of the American Association of
Retired Persons and National Re-
tired Teachers association, said

older Americans agree with the,
need for fiscal responsibility, "but
we do not agree that programs
which deal in basic human needs
should be arbitrarily slashed while
subsidies to wealthy farmers and
loan guarantees for major corpor-
ations go unchallenged."
One of the two bills vetoed would
have established a National In-
stitute on Aging to conduct re-
search into the aging process and
set up a new program of mental
health services for the elderly.
The other was an $850-million
pill providing funds for public-
service jobs for older low-income
persons, for senior centers, and
for extensions of programs pro-

viding a variety of services to the
elderly and for model projects.
i'The Social Security and welfare
bill provides benefits for the
needy aged, the disabled, widows
and many other groups.
It also raises payroll taxes to
finance the benefits and contains
cutbacks in the Medicaid program
for the poor designed to save
$790 million a year.
Nixon said he would sign the
measure "with very great pleas-
ure." He said he could "sign this
bill without violating my prom-
ises to hold down federal spend-
ing in order to avoid a general
tax increase."
