TEXAS A&M MOTHERS CLUB SCHOLARSHIP WINNER Mrs. Clifton Adams Makes Presentation to John the LEUKEMIA society of america Eckhardt Is Backing Social Security Hike WASHINGTON (Sp) Congressman Bob Eclchardt of Harris County has joined 78 other members of the House Ln introducing legislation which would result in a 15 per cent across-the-board increase in monthly social security benefits. The bill also would increase minimum benefits from $55 to J80 and raise maximum benefits from J218 to $250.70. "It is unconscionable for this nation to allow its retired workers to fall deeper and deeper into poverty as a result of the failure of the Administration and Congress to halt inflation," the 8th District congressman said. "Certainly we must move quickly to slow the pace of inflation that is eating away at the earnings of all Americans, but in the meantime we cannot permit relived persons to bear an unfair share of the fight against inflation by refusing to maintain Social Security benefits above a poverty level." Eckhardt pointed out that the nation's elderly is one of the segments of society hit hardest by spiralling inflation and the low Social Security payments. "Of 15.2 million adult Americans living in poverty, 5,7 per cent, or more than a third, are over 65 years old," he said. "The bill I am co-sponoring would move an estimated 1.4 million persons out of the poverty level. I do not believe there is another single action which we can take which will do as much good."
