Dixon Evening Telegraph (Newspaper) - April 3, 1965, Dixon, Illinois Dixon evening Telegraph serving the heart of Rock River Valley for More than a Century dial 282-1111 114th year Dixon Illinois saturday april 3, 1965 number 79 10 pages Price ten cents newsroom notes in keeping with the old adage a like father like Sony about one adult male in a Erv four in the present generation of american workers is following in his fathers occupational footsteps the Institute of life insurance reported recently. A the figures show that the a inheritance Factor is very much stronger than average in the Case of occupations which outrank others in earning Power prospects and the said a this is particularly True of the classification of professional technical and Kindred workers. Here about two out of every five of the men whose fathers careers were m this Field Are engaged in the same occupational group and the proportion is nearly half for the age group Between 25 to 34. A similarly a comparatively High proportion about one in Thiee. In found in the class Ifica Tion of non farm managers of-1 finals and proprietors. By age higher proportions of those with this paternal background Are found in the older rallies than younger groups. A on the other hand the chances of a Man following the same occupation As his father Are very Low m the clerical group Only about one m ten. And Are Well under average in other classifications such As sales and service workers labourers and farm j ers in these cases As the tabulations indicate the majority have moved into other Fields in line with one of our oldest and Mart fundamental traditions that Angin is no hairier to achievement. A thu what stands out in the findings is the great degree of occupational mobility and Opportunity that continues to prevail in our society h or except in the special Case of agriculture the fact is that sons who Model their career on their fathers still make up Only a minority of their occupational classification Een in those like the professional and managerial groups where the proportion of paternal a inheritance is comparatively High. Any notion therefore that the occupational Structure in this country is becoming More rigid and increasingly determined by paternal background finds Little confirmation in the evidence.
