EDELMAN AND BOORE said the overhaul involved switching from the present system, which uses about M categories to determine the assistance level in each May Get 1 11« hetti to a new system which reduces the categories to nine or 10 and; also eliminates many of the special allowances now granted. They said the new system would apply initially to the 200,000 cases in the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (ADC) program. Edelman and Moore, chairman of the Legislative Advisory Committee on Public Assistance, said it would eliminate 10,000 ineligible ADC cases. They said it would mean less payments or payments at the same level in 60,000 ADC cases, but increases in payments to the remaining 120,000 cases. The state's total ADC budget would remain the same. CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN able to give a 27 per cent increase in payments to recipients with no other incomes W and has saved a projected $1 billion in welfare payments 1 since the switch to flat grants combined with a crackdown on cheaters. Moore said Gov. Daniel Walker has indicated he will sign' legislation allowing the state to make the change.

READ THE WANT ADS! Legal Question OUT-OF-STATE RESIDENT MAY SERVE AS EXECUTOR Q. When we had our will drawn up about four years ago we were told that we could not name our daughter as executor because she lives outside of Illinois. Now, I understand this law has been changed so that our daughter can serve as executor. Is this true? A. Yes. The law was changed effective October 1969, so that an out-of-state resident who otherwise meets the qualifications may serve as executor of an Illinois resident's will. However, the law also requires that a resident of this state must be designated to serve as the executor's agent to receive notices and service of process. If the executor does not do this, the clerk in the county where the estate is pending acts as agent.
