The first paragraph TOWLE STAINLESS FLATWARE below is taken from an article on the proposed legislative review of the present welfare and medicaid programs. It confirms mv point regarding excessive administrative costs. "Under this plan, says Wyman, some 17,000 caseworkers presently involved in application investigation will be freed "to provide social services for individuals and families who require help." He did not say whether the new system would save money or cost more." Wyman refers to George K, Wyman, state welfare commissioner. A total of 17,000 case workers (remember these are only the ones involved in application investigation) cost the taxpayers of the state $125 million per year not c .anting clerical, stenc graphic and other support personal and several tiers of high priced supervision.

As Mr. White points out, conclusions should be reached by taking into consideration the whole contest, not an isolated occurrence. Israel took the greatest care ,. manN MftTta U * £ L SC £ l i b r i i TanceYtheT^affthe Russians and their allies Israelis cling to old-fashioned virtues, patriotism and love of their country. A country enduring endless attacks along its borders, eternal threats by the Arabs that they are going to be destroyed, the world can hardly expect a people so long brutalized by hostile neighbors to constantly respond with prudence. Israel has made the desert bloom; it truly has made an arid country flow with the proverbial milk and honey. They have demonstrated that they can live peacefully with the Arabs. Their know-how would be of benefit to their Arab neighbors. But most important of all, a peaceful settlement in the Middle East now could be of benefit to an mankind in averting the possibility of aa third world war.
