Hillings is a friend of President

CHIEF TSR researcher on the
project, James Morgan, criti-
cizes welfare policies for ne-
glecting families and instead of-
fering more incentives to in-
dividuals. He says that "family
dynamics are crucial."
"The widespread belief that
people can overcome poverty
through fierce determination
aided by welfare work in-
centives is a fallacy,"vargues
"A person's mental attitude
has little effect. Rather, out-
side factors influencing his fam-
ily make-up - new children or
divorces - are more signifi-
cant," he explains.
MORGAN ALSO argues against
guaranteed income schemes
which, he says, would prema-
turely split-up families and dou-
ble taxes used for welfare.
The HEW interpretation of the
University's findings sent to the

gets attention

President, has also received
criticism from ISR.
According t HEW's Technical
Officer Jonathan Lane, w h o
monitor's the ISR research, the
President was particularly inter-
ested in the HEW figures indi-
cating that between 1968 and
1973, 45 per cent of the popula-
tion was eligible for welfare at
one time or another.
"These numbers provide the
Administration with just more
evidence that the present wel-
fare system needs overhauling,"
says Lane.
HOWEVER, Morgan disputes
the HEW figures, "These are ei-
ther a misinterpretation of our
research or they got them else-
where," he says.
"Our study dasn't designed to
make such estimates or catch
the Administration's welfare
cheaters," he states. "Rather,
what the data really shows is a
high turnover in the poverty
population," Morgan explained.
The project also stated that
women on the average are paid
$1 an hour less than men in
comparable jobs. A woman-

headed family's chances of per-
sistent poverty is twice as great
as male-headed; and Blacks
earn 10 per cent less than whites
holding similar jobs.
The ISR report has often in-
volved ISR personnel in massive
detective work - keeping tabs
on the increasingly mobile fam-
ilies and their offspring whom
they attempt to interview each
"We followed the original
5,000 families, and when some-
one leaves the family, we follow
them too - the sample keeps
growing!" states Joan Brinser,
an ISR program director.
Nevertheless, ISR hopes to
continue the follow-ups for at
least four more years. "We
would have lost the families
long ago if we didn't pay them,
she admits.
For the first five years, ISR
personnel conducted personal
interviews among the families.
But recently, to cut expenses,
the Institute has conducted
phone interviews.

Probably not. All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all,no one
has taken your job. And you're eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves its costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two. By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength inthe competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again well
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you doany better is you.
