Aawku lasts fwi: III I Just how rich the United States has become might be diffictut to determine. The money we spend each year on tobacco, soft drinks, beer, wine. and spirits, cosmetics, entertainment, aad other non-essentials adds up to many billions of dollars. So do our outlays for education, both public and private, highway construction and main- tenanca, and such basic needs as food, shelter, and clothing. Even what we waste each year, as trash and garbage, is a measure of our affluence. Surely, with resources to boggle the liveliest imagination, the United States must be able to care for its own, from pre~natal care to perpetual mowing of cemetery lots. But does it? Does every element in the population share the bounty, and share it equitably? Or do some groups get preferred treatment? What of the elderly? Are older Americans rewarded in tangible ways for their share in creating, through years of working, all this super- abundance that rouses envy abroad?

ON LOWER LEVEL RUN, NEAR CEDAR Sponsor: George Sponauale The plenty that foreigners envv is not evenly distributed. Our elderly are scattered along the total economic spectrum, from very rich to very poor. To be young and poor is to suffer deeply, but at least there is hope of breaking out of the strait iacket of poverty. For the very old at or below the poverty level there can be no such hope. If they have worked hard while younger, year after year, what a crushing thought it is that they have missed out! What is the payoff for a lifetime of labor? Whatever happened. they well may ask, to their share of America's glowing promise? Compounding the problem is the recent rapid increase of Americans in the upper age brackets. It even exceeds the statistical bulge in the 15-25 age bracket, result of the baby boom in the 1950s. Births have leveled off and zero population growth is on the way to being achieved. It is predicted that the total population will have increased eight times in the same 80 years. This increase, largely the result of medical advances, has been and continues to be a phenomenon that society is not yet prepared to cope with. Some concessions of real vail, have been made to the elderly. !J.t these are offset by the emergerce of damaging stereotypes that discourage further action. The withholding of 5octal Security taxes from every pP ~'check fosters the notion that the active work force is subsidizing the leisure of the retired. Even worse is the general tendency of younger people to view retirement benefits as welfare. Is there really discrimination against the elderly? Look around.
