The Report on Economic (irowth, Employ- m c n I. and Priee Slnbilily, though less of a headline-grab- tier, is of equal importance be- cause it sels out a blueprint for achieving reasonably full employment in a growing econ- omy where inflation is kepi at a minimum.

It is a fact, attributable, to all three k'vcls of government, that a good numy welfare re- cipients arc able Iwdied men and women capable of work- ing; that the system penalizes those who work and that, many instances arise whereby one can receive more income from welfare than he can by work, ing.

The malignant bhlhmark cov- ered about 12 per cent of Ihc thrce-week-old boy's body when removed, Dr. Neil R. Feins said Monday. The child was born in August, 1971. Feins said he waited to report the operation lo be sure there were no furlher signs of malignancy. Dr. Feins is director of pedia- tric surgery at Boston City Hos- pital and assistant professor of surgery at Boston University Medical School. He said there have been no other reported operations on a giant mole on an infant so young. Moles of Ihis lype are known as giant congenital pig- nadians. This would be plishcd by adopting a Negative Income fax system. Under the Negative Income Tax Plan everyone would file his personal tax return each year and if his income were above the poverty line, adjust- i ed from time to lime based on his cost of living, he would pay lax. If he were at the poverty line be would pav no tax. If he were below the line he would receive a cheque from the eov- ernmenl in an amount which would put him over the line. With computers, administra- tion would not be difficult. Pre- sumably the system could bs refined to reflect differences in the cost of living in various regions of Ihc country. It is also assumed thai a Negative Income Tax system would do away with most existing wel- fare programs, other than those aimed at rehabilitation, job re- training and the personal and guidance functions of the wel- fare system. ESTIMATES VAHV The cost estimates of the plan vary widely. The Senate Report estimates that based on 1969 costs, it would have been S800 million. Critics suggest il lo nualil for the government guaranteed wage. Afler ingredients an- installed, the government must tind Ike necessary funds, fine of the most sensible methods is lo cut out government services for those who don'l need them and W'bo are capable of look- ing after themselves. If tin- were the technique adopted, no tax would bf- needed and bureaucracy would be re- dllced.
