Each Day 6,000 persons reach 66. This increase in Quot senior citizens Quot poses Many problems a for the aging for those who care for them. Up National reporter Harry Ferguson discusses some of them in this dispatch first of three on the subject. By Harry Ferguson Washington up a every Day 5,000 americans turn age 65. It is Safe to say that millions of old people Are living longer enjoying it less. Not All of them of course. Many of them adjust smoothly to their new Way of life learn that there is considerable Validity in the slogan that the latter years of their lives can be the Golden ones. But the hard facts Are depressing. There Are 3 million elderly families trying to live on less than $3,000 a year. There Are nearly 6 million elderly persons struggling along on less than $1,800 a year. That kind of income definitely puts them in the category that the Federal government Calls poverty. There is increased concern by the Federal government including Congress about old people. It would be Nice to say that Congress is acting out of humanitarian instincts but it be True. Congress is concerned because there Are about 18 million americans past 65 almost All of them Are entitled to vote. Any senator or representative who views the plight of the aged with indifference is inviting retirement to private life All of them know it. In the Long history of the United states the Federal governments concern about old people is a fairly recent development. It has occurred for instance in the adult lifetime of president Johnson he mentioned that fact in accepting the annual report of his Council on aging a special group set up to study the problem Quot when i first came to Washington we were doing nothing. Social Security was not even talked about. Old age As i understood was not prevalent it took the combined efforts of president Roosevelt Huey Long a Good Many others to dramatize the situation where we could really do something for the aged. Quot up to that time most of our elections had been run on the basis of whether you were wet or dry prohibitionist of anti prohibitionist klan or Antl klan or whether you were for the local Bridge or against the local Bridge. I never heard of social Scurley until i was 21 years old. All i heard was whether you were wet or dry for the courthouse group or against the reason president Johnson did not hear anything about old people when he first came to Washington was that in the cynical world of politics there were not enough of them to make a noise loud enough to be heard in the Halls of Congress. In this Century there has been a startling increase in the number of persons past 65. Like this in 1900 there were 3.1 million. In 1940, 9 million. In 1960, 16.6 million. In 1965, 18 million. The projection for 1980 is 24.5 million for 2000, 32.3 million. Old people not Only have increased in great numbers but they have become organized vocal. Politicians Are facing up the fact that you had better worry about the old folks or else. For much of this Century medical science concerned itself Moi with the aged but with the infant the adolescent. The results were Gratifying. In 1900 the death rate from the communicable diseases of childhood a such things As measles Scarlet fever whooping cough dip Therla a was 65.2 per thousand. Today those diseases almost have been conquered the death rate is negligible. Then the doctors turned their attention to ailments of the adults the aged again the results were Good. The average life expectancy of americans shot upward in a Steep curve. In 1900 it was around 45 years. Today it is around 70. On aug. 14, 1935, president Roosevelt signed the social Security Law said it was Quot a Cornerstone in a Structure that is being built but is by no Means his words were prophetic. Social Security has helped the aged but it has not solved their problems. Over the years Congress has passed at least eight amendments to the social Security act liberalizing improving the benefits. It currently has under consideration a Bill for medicare under social Security. But the Federal action has not kept Pace with the. Problem even though most of the states also provide some form of old age assistance. It is As dangerous to generalize about old people As it is about teen agers democrats baptists or chorus girls. Many of them Are Well adjusted Happy. But Many of them also Are 111, discouraged hopeless helpless. To them the ticking of the clock Day after Day grows louder until it seems to be a Bell tolling their doom. That is Why president Johnson has chosen this month of May to try to rally the nation to the problems of the aged. He knows millions of them need More Money but he is equally interested in bestowing up them the priceless ingredients of optimism Hope.
