A such a program will mean that Many elderly persons will be Able to maintain their Independence longer a prolong the time when an institution will have to take Over. Similar programs have been gaining widespread support Over the entire nation in recent years and a Bill in Congress would provide major Federal funding for a nationwide program. The u. S. House of representatives passed last week a Hill which would set up a Pill program to give free or Low Cost meals to needy persons 60 years of age or older. The plan would allocate $100 million for fiscal 1973 which begins july i and $150 million the following year. The Money would be Given states operating programs approved by the department of health education and welfare. The Senate already had passed a similar measure making Quick Compromise committee action Likely. Mrs. Mortimer said she believes that having a program already in operation in High Point will enhance the possibility of Federal financial support if the Bill is signed into Law and the funds Are appropriated.
