TUESDAY, NOVEMBER .15, 1949 BLITHE VILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE THf NATION TODAY— Dato for Hearings on Problem Of Incomes Snows 38 Million Earn Less than $2,000 Yearly By Janics Mnrlow WASHINGTON, Nov. 15. (fl»>—Next month the problem ol low- Income families will get an ahlng here. This will be at public hearings conducted by a subcommittee ol the Joint House-Senate Economic Committee. get ready for the hearings* J.S. Refutes Moscow's 'harge of Acquiring Air force Bases in Spain WASHINGTON, NOV. 15—</T)— "he Slate Department yesterday denounced as "absolutely without foundation" Moscow charges that Ihe United Stales is acquiring air bases in Spain. The Moscow Communist Patty the subcommittee had a staff of government specialists get Information together for it. The report of the staff was made public over the week-end. It runs 138 pages and Is an attempt to bring, up to (late information on low income people. The report said: "The stas, needs, and economic circumstances of the low income families in America have not been udequately appraised In recent 1$ What follows has been taken from the report: In 1948. there were about 3S'-6 million (amines and eight million Individuals not In families in • the Untied states. Nearly 10 million of those fam-i files—rcriresentliw 32 million per-, sons and six million individuals not in families—had incomes less (nan $2,000. Must Uve In City Most of the families below the S2.000 level are city or non-farm families. Of the total of nearly 10 million families, about 3 l>3 million lived on farms. Of that number, 1,700.000 had income less than $1.000 In 1948. Since low Income people can buy less tnin those w:th higher Income, the report says, they hold back the economic progress of the country. There are various reasons wny so many people have to live on incomes less than 52.000 a year. 'Some are physically handicapped some are people over 65 (about 1,700.000 non-farm families were headed by persons over 651. 'some get low income because they're unskilled workers. Abuui 1,500,000 city families with less than 42.000 Income were broken families. That is. they were headed by women because of widowhood, desertion, or divorce. But the report particularly stressed lack ol education Wsaid: "Slxtv four per cent of the non- farm families headed by per.sons between the ages of 25 and 64 receiving Incomes below 52,000 <in 1946) had not progressed beyond the eighth grade. "Only six per cent had gone beyond high school. Lack of etluca tlon for a better paying occupation thus appears as an important cause of low income. Opportunity Costs "More important than this, how ever. Is the fact that cducntiona opportunity in the United states at least beyond the grade-schoo level, still greatly depends upon th income status of the child's family "Low Incomes result from lack education, and lack of educatio for the next generation results fron the low'Ivienme.s o{ the present, a process which tends to stratify the population." Which is another way of saying: II it. child's parents can't afford to send him through school, his chances for climbing in the world nre cut down and, if in turn, he makes only a low Income, he won't be able to send his children to school. Those who favor government aid to education will probably use this •Trcport for support in arguing for ~ aid when Congress comes back in 1950. And it will be used also by those favoring wider social benefits from the government for the handicapped and agel. Senator Sparkman (D-Ala.1, (n releasing the report, said it docs not necessarily represent the Economli Committee's views but will be used as a base for its studies.
