John Culver, seeking a US. senate seat, said: “We have made some modest progress in recent years in dealing with the problems of the eld erly, but we have a long dist anee to go before any of us...can be satisfied ” Schaben called for “new strength to be given to the 12 percent of Iowa’s population over age HO and the providing of funds for programs so the state’s elderly know the meaning of human dignity ” He charged that “the current state administration is insensitive to the state's elder ly population.” He proposed that “funds be available for programs such as Meals on Wheels and to provide health care. “The elderly have the double worry about whether or not health care is available to them, let alone what it will cost.” Culver said the elderly “have an especially keen and painful awareness of what a ravaging inflation means. Their incomes are most often fixed and whatever increase they receive in Social Security, pensions or other assistance is most quickly overtaken and even submerged in the Inflationary lunge. “They are particularly vulnerable to the sharpest edges of inflation health costs, utility hills. rent, food and transportation ” The comments were made Sunday during ceremonies opening the Charles Varney Senior Citizens Center and Village.
