Beadleston, left, yesterday addressed members of tho Red Bank Old Guard at a meeting in the Community YMCA. With him is Norman C. Gardner, a director of the Old Guard organization. Old Guard Group HearsBeadleston i RED BANK Assemblyman Alfred N. Beadleston, (R-Monmouth), yesterday discussed the problems of aging citizens with 100 members of the Red Bank Old Guard and their guests from the Lakewood Old Guard. Mr. Beadleston said he would push for legislation which would permit the state to receive federal funds available under the Kerr-Mills bill which provides financial assistance for medical care of the aged. The greatest problem in the area of health care is medically indigent persons and those who are over 65 that are chronically ill, he said. - He pointed out that laws exist in the state which prevent discrimination in the employment of persons over 65 provided the individual is physically capable to work and employment would not affect a previously established pension system. The assemblyman told the group, which met at the Community YMCA, that they were under misapprehension if they thought the tax value of the senior citizens real estate tax exemption varied from county to county. A court interpretation of the law provides that the exemption be computed on the basis of the true value of the land involved rather than its assessed value. He advised the group ''that the Division of the Aging had been set up four years ago to deal specifically with the problems of elderly people.
