Mr. Purvis explained. The siniple truth. Mr. Purvis jnid. is that there just isn't enough bread to feed all the hungry agencies. Despite the fact last year's campaign was five per cent above 1971, u was tar from what the Com- mar-jty Chest had hoped io get. The Herald was told that to satisfy all the needs of the 15 agencies, the appeal would have io raise S44.000 more than it did. Each year, the agencies sub- mit to the United Appeal board what they think they would re- i quire. this amounted to for the 1973 operations. The board reviewed all the soplicsnocs and told the as en- cies they would receive S15 i for 1973 if the campaign could j raise that much. When the care-! paign erdec. all that could i allocated was S1IS.OOO. "I riess we have to be grate- f'jl for what ever sraotmt the cornnmnlty gives us." said Ross, local president for the Canadian Xatiooal Institute for the Blind. j United Appeal officials said they hope t.9 do better with If73 campaign. One proposed change is to exter.d the cam-! paien to outside city limits, Mr. j Purvis I Seme agencies, such as the John Howard are bare- ly holdinr on.

The total money spent by the provincial government m social assistance, including its contri- butions to tbe mimicipaliries, is shared 50 per cent by tbe fed- err.i government, he e-TpLaised. Other changes are forthcom- ing but will not yet be made public, VTest said. Ke said the department Is r.ow studying two reports cc the future directions of the social assistance program, and when a majority opinion is formed the minister win maie a de- cision. Ore report is being prepared by the chief deputy rninisier, Bruce who has ir.viteri comments from the public and interest croups. The other is an bdcpender.t survey of 5.KO Al- beitara which the government commissioned from Social Sys- tems, a Calgary public opinion research firm. 1 "Both reports are ta fed the department is studying them." Mr. West said. ''It is too early to say when the minister will make a decision based on the majority opinion to emerge from the reports fexd propose legislation." According to a background renon prepared by Mr. son. ihe e-tisting program has several deficiencies, including toe lack of incentive for reci- pients to find work, unequal treatment of recipients, flie complexity of the program and the confusing division of re- sponsibility between the prov- i ince and the rnu-iicipaLlties. The report says under exist- ing regulations, people with as- sets of more than S5CO if single more than SI .COO if a lamily can't qL-siiiy for social assis- tance. They stipulate that peo- ple with monthly income of more if single and more than 525 if a family also cannot qualify for assistance.
