Tabling the committee's he said more than Sti bil- lion a year has boon poured into it without reaping more (lian meagre returns. "We say it must he scrapped because it is obsolete, lacking in regard foi- human values, and unable to alleviate poverty, let j alone eliminate it. It has no de- renders, only offenders." Ho proposed instead, as had been widely expected, a guaran- tee income system for the poor. Senator Croll, 71, is a former Windsor. Out., mayor and a To- ronto Liberal. He was a mem- ber of the Ontario legislature from lo including a period as welfare minister in "We fashioned a social wel- fare machine, luhriealed il with our dollars, and then turned our hack on its operation, insulated ourselves from any misgivings by implicit be- lief in the myths about, poverty. The poor don't, want lo work, we i said: they are and content to live on handouts; they arc rejects these false and long-held resumptions." Sixty per cent of Hie poor re not on welfare. The existing system had pinned." It failed because it bad treated the j solutions for symptoms of poverty and left j problem the disease itself untouched. It did not reach the working poor, "that vast army in the labor force whose income is grossly insufficient."

The House of Representatives completed congressional action Tuesday on the projxised three- year federal spending program. It includes special incentives for institutions to shorten training by a year while boosting enrol- ments and developing new types of health workers such as doc- tors' assistants.
