However, investigation would be made if the applicant's information were questionable. And experts would have to validate an applicant's claim for disability such as blindness. WW WASHINGTON (AP) - The government proposed Tuesday that people be made eligible for welfare on the basis of a simple statement of need. The proposed new approach, which would eliminate involved investigations, could mean that more eligible people would be added to the swelling welfare roles, officials said. But they said little abuse would be expected because investigations have found only about one-half of one per cent of infractions. After publication of the proposed new regulation in the Federal Register on Wednesday, interested parties would have 30 days to submit comments. Affected by the regulations would be programs of Old Age Assistance. Aid to Families with Dependent Children, aid to the blind, aid for permanently disabled and help for those who cannot afford to pay their medical bills medicaid. Critics in Congress and elsewhere have expressed concern atthe rapid growth of the AFDC and medicaid programs.

ABC EVENING NEW S WITH FRANK REYNOLDS keep the city from raising Palm Beach's water rates in 1964. Easley added that the city spent an additional $600,000 to provide north and south mains for the town to correct its poor water pressure. He said he and other commissioners were against the water rate increase because they "felt the city and the town should be treated the same and looked at it as one community." Although he said the water rate issue was immaterial. Easley contended that it was a matter of principle. He said he "stood up and took a beating" for Palm Beach in 1964 and was dismayed at the town's response to the city's right of way request. Veterans' Official Again Criticised West Palm Beach Mavor David II. Brady Tuesday labeled as "a delaying tactic" a letter from the Town of t'alm Beach seeking further details on a right-of-way requested by the city a year ago lor a proposed $2 million wean outfall system. The letter, which requests further explanation of six points, was issued by Town Manager B. Arnold and Brady plans 'o draft a response today. Brady said, however, that he does not plan to dwell at length on the six points because of the time needed to fulfill some of the requests ithree to six months) and the irrelevance of most of the questions. "It's a delaying tactic,'' the mayor 'harmed. "Most of these i questions i have already been answered and very -few of them were brought out al the meeting. " Brady referred to a public hearing held last week by Palm Beach residents who grilled him on the right-of-way request which officials and property owners have been batting back and forth for a year. Arnold commented in his letter that the townspeople at the hearing "were not only prolilically inquisitive, but in the aggregate, gave evidence ol dissatisfaction with the ocean outfall system as thus far presented." West Palm Beach is seeking a 15-foot right-of-way through Palm Beach Country Club property, property which Brady said had been recommended by Arnold. Brady added that Arnold had suggested the city obtain the right of way through Graham Kckes School property, but the price asked by the school was considered exorbitant. The six requests outlined in Arnold's letter to the city included A feasibility study comparing the cost of a new mainland sewage treatment plant with the proposed ocean outfall system: A cost analysis ol the use of several other ocean outfall routes proposed; Evaluated results of additional and more complete ocean current studies Uhe Gulf Stream); Interim evaluation on the persistence of infective virus and colilorm bacteria in sea water; "" I.

Easley said he was dismayed at the town s response to the city's request, especially since lie and other commissioners had gone "to bat" to ducted, but that it will take time. Burns also spoke to the commissioners and threatened to instigate a recall of the entire county commission after Commissioner Weaver refused to comment on whether or not he has in his possession statements from the present two employes in the veteran's service office, justifying complaints made by Burns. "Either run the office right or close it down." Burns told the commission. Weaver, by this time visibly annoyed, retorted "Sir, you will not tell me how to run rny job." 2 Sisters Sue Mother ELIZABETH. N.J.

I lea I ill Center Drawings OKd Final working drawings of the proposed $1.2 million Comprehensive Community Health Center of Palm Beach County have been approved by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) in Washington. Notification of the approval was received Monday by the center's board of directors through its board chairman, Dr. Edward M. Eissey, and center administrator Paul Bennett.

Judge Dismisses Suit Against Burtons LOS ANGELES (UPD-A half-million-dollar suit against actor Richard Burton and his wife, actress Elizabeth Taylor, filed by a film director last year, was dismissed today in Superior Court. Judge Robert W. Kenny dismissed the suit on a motion by the Burtons that director Julian Blaustein had failed to make a sufficient showing tc bring the action to trial. u a Richard McCord Prejident For the second week in a row, criticism of County Veterans Service Officer Robert Vought was voiced at the regular meeting of the Palm Beach County Commission. This time, Richard Burns, the disabled veteran who last week initiated an investigation into operation of Vought's office, was joined by Leo Ri-vest. a former employe in the Veterans Service Office. Rivest, reading from a three page letter, said that County Commission Chairman E.F. Van Kessel, County Administrator Jack Dean and County Personnel Director John Turner, have all been aware of "What was going on" in the Veteran's Service Office. County Commissioner E.W. Weaver, appointed as chairman of the committee to investigate the charges made by-Burns last week, told Rivest "I'm not prepared to conduct a Salem witch hunt in four or five days." Weaver said that an investigation is currently being con- Council Elects Eight M embers UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) - The U.S. General Assembly elected eight members to the U.N.

Under Keita's aegis, Communist Chinese became more active in Mali during the early years of its independence than anywhere else in West Africa. On some occasions he wore a tunic in the Mao Tse-tung style, acquired on a visit to Peking in 1964. Chinese technicians flooded in for such projects as a Bamako exhibition hall, a Mopti motel and a transmitter for Radio Mali. Red China agreed last May to build a railroad that would give Mali access to the Atlantic via neighboring Guinea. Early in his administration Keita left the French franc zone, to which nearly all the former French colonies belong, and created his own currency. This soon became virtually worthless and Mali's political and geographic isolation, its poor soil and limited resources brought snowballing economic difficulties. Last year Keita negotiated a gradual return to the French franc zone. In return he had to abandon some of his vaunted independence from "imperialist influence." Estimates of the number of Chinese in Mali as of last winter ranged up to 5.000 compared to about 500 Russians and 40 Americans. Military Deposes Mali's President d rather switch than fight!"
