BECAUSE OF SOCIAL SECURITY Worker, ree Seen Reti Gap by JOHN CUNNIFP AP Busintss Analyst NEW YOBK (AP) — Observations on the mores of Americans, particularly in regard to the way they acquire, spend and even save their money: —A generation gap may be opening between young workers and retirees. That is the conclusion of The Morgan Guaranty Trust, which observes: "It would not be surprising if young and middle-aged workers, whose family budgets are being severely . strained by taxes and inflation, would oppose further liberalization of Hado's TheyTl Do It Every Time ® Carnanas Grains of A PENCIL Have you ever noticed that a pencil is usually missing when you heed one to write down come message? It is real embarrassing to ask the party at the other end of the line to wait while you look for a pencil. A patient calling her doctor's borne asked the doctor's wife to take her phone number and have the doctor call. "Could you wait just a minute?", the wife asked "I can't seem to find a pencil." It is not uncommon, to call to give an item to a reporter on a newspaper to have them ask you to wait while they find a pen- Mothers often find ,vt necessary to buy pencils by the hundred for their school age children. . Mothers' sometimes have: the old fashion- B °b Oarnand ed idea that pencils are used for writing. This is just another indication of the generation gap that exists these days. Any child knows that'pencils hava far more interesting uses. Pencils are made for people- poking, paint stirring and chewing. Pencils are for small construction projects '— pillars or props for tollhouse roofs, stockade fences, immature chair or table legs. Pencils are for curling a small doll's hair. A pencil and mother's hair set makes a perfect ringlet. In school, pencils are for writing on the back of the student seated conveniently close. Or a reason for taking 30 trips to the sharpener to reduce it to an undesirable stub. With 'all of these uses for pencils it is little wonder that the pad wMch usually is placed beside the telephone in every home should often be without a pencil for taking messages. Every office has those who pick up pencils where they find them and seldom put them back, making pencils hard to come Iby when they.are needed. Social Security." The bank notes that some relatively poor families pay more in Social Security levies than in federal income taxes. In fact, 12 million tax returns in 1969 involved no tax payment. But these same people paid Social Security. The developing situation, Morgan notes, arises from the increasing strain on budgets of wage earners because of steadily rising levies and the growing pressures for higher benefits by the nation's retirees. —Many people each year decide that the best thing they can do for their families is to disappear, leaving behind their insurance policy and strong circumstantial evidence that suggests they are dead. The tragic fishing trip is one of the commoner ploys: an overturned boat, a floating hat and maybe a note left on the dresser at home relating how the writer expected to be home at such and such a time. That takes planning, but not all such deceptions do. Insurance company files contain the case of a man who stood on the sidewalk and watched firemen battle a hotel fire. When the fire was over and the newspapers hit the street, the man discovered he was among the missing. Seizing the opportunity, he disappeared.

Lonn/e Rohr City Chairman For 'Morality in Media KUGRAD IS DIRECTOR Famed Florida A-M Band Will Sub for Kansas U. Lonnie Bohr, 19, is organizational chairman of Morality in Media of Garden City, an interfaith organization whose purpose is to conteract the effects of prinited 'and visual maiteriai which encourages violence, dirug usage, promiscuity and perversion in youth. Rohr is the son of Teresa Weeden,, 207 W. Campbell, -and Edwin L. Bohr, 210 E. Maple. Morality in Media, Bohr states, attempts to curb the fflow of obscene material to youth and to develop a mass media based on the principles of ifiruth, taste, inspiration and love. Three clergymen founded the organization in 1962 as Operation Ycirksville. Policy now is formed by a board of directors of 27 men representing many faiths and professions. The organization is non-sectarian, non-political and anti- censansihip, Bohr says, and is the first full-time professionally-staffed organization of its kind. President of the national organization, the Bev. Morton A. Hill, was appointed by President Johnson in 1968 to the Presidential Commission on Ob- opportunity, had him declared dead and collected his insurance. —Much is made of the high rate of savings in the United States during recent months.

(AP) The band will ibe playing University of Kansas songs — "I'm a Jayfojawfc," "Crimson and the Blue" — and it'll be representing K.U. at halftime of a Kansas football game. But it won't be the K.U. band And therein lies a sitory of plans to honor an outstanding K.U. aluimnus. The occasion will be the football clash between Kansas and Florida State University on Sept. 25 in Tallahassee. Florida State is the school K.U. Chancellor Laurence Chalmers formerly was with, and he's been antidpaibinig the gridiron meeting. Also located in Tallahassee Is Florida A&M University, whose famed "Marching 100 Band" has entertained an estimated 400 million persons through public appearances and television, Including halftime of the 1969 Super Bowl game. The Director of bands and chairman of the music department at Florida A&M is William P. Foster, a 1941 K.U. graduate. The K.U. Alumni Association will honor Foster to ceremonies prior to the game. The distinction also includes an invitation to have his band represent his alma mater on the occasion. Vince Bilotta, field director of the alumni association, proposed the plan at a directors' meeting in January. After his graduation from Kansas as a bachelor of music education, Foster earned a master's degree at Wayne Soaite University and a docto- raite in education from Columbia University.

"Morality hi Media acts as an information and communications center, disseminating information on the problem and then channeling response. "Pornography is smut hi films, books and magazines," Rohr adds, "but it is rapidly becoming much worse than this. Pornography is a cancer ait- tacking moral stardards in every community."

Portland's Fountain-Park Shuts out City's Turmoil GARNAND FUNERAL CHAPEL By ALLEN NACHBMAN i Associated Press Writtr PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)-Ws a baking hot day at Portland's Civic Auditorium Forecourt, in the city's bustling core area. Cool streams bubble between masonry banks and water tumbles down an 18-foot falls in the b 1 o c k-square fountain-park across from the theater. Trees, shrubs and high grassy knolls shelter the garden from the turmoil of the city and a pleasant patchwork of strumming guitars, rushing water and conversation triumphs over the sound of traffic. Pretty 'girls in tiny bathing suits are stretched on towels in the flat concrete pedestals of the lower pools. Businessmen sit on the stone banks, slacks rolled up, socks and wing-tipped shoes parked alongside, dangling their feet in the water. Critics say the $500,000 creation bais become a hippie haven. But housewives and children, business/men and con sanction workers also frequen the .place. It is one of downtown For Hand's most popular outdoo gathering spots. Enthusiasm over it is as strong now as when Lawrence Halprin of San Francisco, the fountain's mod, longJbairod architect, helped I dedJicalte it last June 23. i Halprin stepped intto a kntee- eep pool of waiter at the base *f the falls, raised bis arms and thanked city officials . for their support. The hippies in the crowd eered. Halprin Quieted them with a geture. "I'm \tery aeidouis about [us," he said. "Because these irery sitraigfalt people have somehow grasped hat cities can be all about. As you play in this garden, please try to remember that we are all in this together.' "It's such a nice place," says the young mother, Sharon Guthiman, 21. "It's the only place downtown where you can jet wet and relax." Airid on the lower level of the E>ark is a small, private place oehind the falls where it's always moist and cool and you can sit and look out through a crashing curtain of water. Now it is evening . The pumps that push 13,000 gallons of water through the system every minute are off and a light spring ram stipples the motionless pools. Sunken spotlights shine up through the young trees. And the only reminder of the city the hiss of tires on wet pave merit on to iar side of the trees. Foster twide hia® been honored by the Florida A&M student government as teacher of the year. His many other awards include having a scholarship mamed in his honor. He Is author of many articles .and publications and has been featured in newsqapers in Florida and' in Ebony Magazine.
