Viewers feel tv helps assassins By CLARKE WILLIAMSON Is the public upset about the spate of assassinations we've had in the last 10 years? You bet. But more important, they're burned up about security measures to' prevent the assassinations from happening. Our ballot asked' if TV coverage of attempts like that on the life of Governor Wallace is bad in that it encourages more assassinations? A big majority of 66.7 per cent say yes against a vote of only 22 percent on the other side. However, in part 2 of our ballot, where we asked if politicians, for safety's sake, should do all their politicking only on the boob tube, an even bigger majority, 68 out of every IffO, say nix to that. Instead, they're for beefing up security measures and enacting stricter laws. Only 16 out of every 100 think exclusive TV coverage would best reduce the danger of assassinations. So the mood' is: Get at the cause! Be more alert and crack down on the criminals! READERS SPEAK TWO VIEWS: From Mrs. Earl Nichol, Omaha, Nebr.: In a free country it is sad our candidates can not walk freely among people without * * * * fear. The only ones who should be afraid are the criminals. Stricter laws, faster conviction, more coverage of the conviction . • . From Denlse Potter, Wilmington, Del.: It's disgusting the way politicians roam through crowds shaking hands, kissing babies, in-/ sincerely trying for a few votes. They should know better than to go out inviting assassination. TODAY'S BEEFBOX: From Everett H. Peterson, San Jose Calif.: I don't care for the technique of rapidly shifting scenes. Many shift several times per second, more than the eye can follow. Isn't this practice contributing to the general tensions that plague us?

Circle only one opinion: 1. I don't mind them. Sometimes thsy are beneficial because they give the suggestion of violence without having to show it. 2. I don't like them. If violence is involved it should be shown, not suggested 3. I don't like rapidly shifting scenes. They are hard on the eyes. 4.

For example, most have never looked into what would happen to the family inconte if the breadwinner were disabled in a job-related accident. Two Columbia University sociologists have looked into it and have just completed a report for a federal cnm- mission. They found that among serious financial hazards against which the family is least protected, this is one that urgently needs attention Wage earners and their families suffer "severe financial attrition" when disability results from job- related injuries, says Walter Adams and A. J. Jaffc of the university's Bureau of Applied Social Research. And, surprisingly, they found that while low-income workers fared poorly, "the affluent fared worst, in the sense that they had the most to lose — and indeed lost a great deal." Workmen's compensation benefits, they concluded, aren't related to the realities of either, family income needs or inflation. Interviews with 121 disabled wage earners showed that: They had earned an average $7,363 a year before their accidents. That was 71 By Carlton Smith per cent of the Ulal household income. After their accidents, they drew an average $2,012 in "workmen's comp'' benefits. That was only 24 per cenl of the household income. In other words, wives and other family members had to find jobs and produce three- fourths of the family income. And there were other inequities. Many of those interviewed — about 20 per cent of them — received no disability payments for a year or more after their accidents. Several were given onlyt lump - sum settlements, "and received them after long delays." Legislators who write the workmen's comp laws appear never to have heard of inflation. Payments, says the Adams-Jaffe report, "did not begin to replace lost earnings in constant dollars. Inflation played a major role in this attrition." The households of those interviewed had lost, on the average, just over a third of the purchasing power t. hey' d enjoyed before the disability. One of the major faults of workmen's comp laws, the two sociologists concluded, is their failure to take into account, the effect of a disability on an entire household. All injured workers receive the same compensation — the same for a young single worker supporting only himself and for a bread - winner with several mouths to feed. The report, prepared for the National f'ommission on State Workmen's Compensation Laws, faults the system heavily and recommends some major overhauls. The family breadwinner, meanw'.iile, can't count on such action being taken in the near future, if ever. For the f a in i 1 y ' s own financial security, lie should examine and overhaul as necessary his p r i v a t o income-protection insurance One problem to be considered is the nonoverlap feature of most disability • income policies. Typically, according to the Health Insurance Institute, workmen's comp benefits will be "carved out" of the payments due under a private policy. W OFF ON A BOX OF KLEENEX TISSUES 280 s.
