Johnson has been his insistence on bigger and broader Social Security. Twice he has enlarged the program. Now he wants to do so again. In addition he has added med­ icare and seeks to broaden that 1oo. In all. 24 million Americans now receive benefits from Social Security. Seventy eight million workers are covered by the program: and 20 million elderly are eligible for medicare. Federal Social Security still is attacked. Some individuals, for example, consider it mismanaged, a bad investment, even a cause of inflation. But even these opponents recognize the need for financial security for the elderly. A great change has developed in America, and one of its clearest consequences has been that families today are often less able to care for their elderly members. America has become essentially urban rather than rural. On the farm it: was not umcom- mon for three generations to live together and, in fact, continue working together. In the city it is more difficult to do so. City homes generally are much smaller than farm homes, a matter of economic necessity in most instances. There is little room for parents and grandpar- -o- -o- -o- ents, especially in city apartments. Another factor is mobility America today is a mobile society. Young, active workers often accept six or eight transfers before settling down permanently. Parenls can hardly travel along with them. As these trends developed ,so did another: longevity. There are more elderly persons than ever before. And since many families are less able to take care of them, financial independence becomes a necessity. Lyndon Johnson's success in broadening the Social Security program, therefore, results not solely from numbers cove"red— which often are votes as well- but from the pressure of social changes that are transforming 1he nation. This much is recognized also in the rapid development of private pension plans, generally financed from payroll deductions, which pay close to $5 billion a year to 4 million retired em­ ployes, and whose assets now total $114 billion. As some parties view the retirement situation there is an inevitable battle developing between federal and private plans. As Socifil Security expands, they feel, private plans may be squeezed out of existence. Others feel the two can live side by side. They note that, government expenditures for Social Security are a much larg- -o- -o- -tier percentage of the gross national product in other countries. In the United States the percentage is between 6 and 7, -o- -o- -o- compared with figures in recent years of 10 to 16 per cent in countries such as Norway, Sweden. Germany, Britain and The Netherlands. Attack Rule Denying Car Fee To Banks Chicago Airport Copter Service SPRINGFIELD, 111..

(AP) — plans to appeal a Ch-euit Court ruing that banks cannot charge a fee for handling renewals of Illinois molor vehicle license plates. Judge Paul Verticchio held last week in Springfield that banks could process license applications but could not charge a service fee as most of then, do. Powell' office said he will appeal that part oi' the decision ruling out the fees. Since 1966 Powell has authorized banks to sell the plates over the counter as a means of easing theload on the secretary of state's office and expediting applications. Eighty-seven banks are engaged in the service. The Illinois Association of remittance Agents filed suit against the banks. The dgents are licensed and charge a f?e for handling vehicle applications.
