PROGRAM EXPANDS, IMPROVES:
Social SecurityExpansion Cited by Prof. Cohen
By SARAH DRASIN
Few people have gotten so close
to history-in-the-making as has
Prof. Wilbur J. Cohen of the
School of Social Work.
For the past year, Prof. Cohen
has served as professor of public
welfare administration at the
University. Before this he worked
in various departments of the So-
cial Security Administration for
He watched it grow from a
small New Dealadevelopment, oft-
en criticized as a fraud and hoax,
to a universally accepted institu-
"From its inception in 1935 un-
til about 1953," Prof. Cohen said,
"social security was thought of
mainly as a child of Roosevelt's
"However, this administration's
acceptance of it has placed it on
a new, non-partisan basis," he
He noted that the Eisenhower
administration has not only ac-
cepted social security without any
fundamental change but is now
trying to extend and improve the
program. "With this develop-
ment," he said, "social security
has become part of the American
way of life."
He pointed out that more than
15 million people are now receiv-
ing some benefit from social se-
curity and that the government
expends $17,000,000,000 yearly for
"The whole underlying philo-
sophy of social security has taken
a new turn following the great
change in American economy,"
Prof. Cohen said. "The depression
is no more, but the American now
needs security for present-day
"The depression only served to
highlight certain needs of people
that social security could help to
satisfy," he continued. "But, now
that the depression is over, the
universal needs of the needy and
aged are still with us and there
is still a job to be done."
Prof. Cohen first gained inter-
est in the concept of social secu-
rity during his years as a student
at the University of Wisconsin.
Two of his instructors, Edwin E.
Witte and Arthur J. Altmeyer
were early planners of the pro-
gram and went on to serve in it's
"Social security will change
only as people are aware of the
need for change," he said.
Reason For Leaving
Prof. Cohen said he has been
asked many times in the last year
why he left government work aft-
er so many years. In answering he
emphasized the constantly grow-
ing role of social security in Amer-.
"While I was in Washington
and since I have been here," he
said, "I've become aware of the
magnitude of problems and the
need for more intensive research
in the field of social security."
Prof. Cohen pointed out that
there are now at least 100,000
people employed in Social Secu-
rity Administration and that the
need for well-trained people to
carry on this work is growing.
"I've taken a Job like this," he
said "to see if I can help remedy
this problem. Here at the Uni-
versity we probably have more
'know-how' in the area of social
security than any other school in
He concluded, "We hope to
build here a curriculum to at-
tract enough trainees in the next
10 or 15 years to fill the growing
need for trained people in the
most important area of Social Se-
