Bill Drafted Kean has drafted a bill to carry out his Ideas. He told newsmen it actually will save the government money In Uio long run.

Domestic workers, farm hands and others would be Included, too. So would state and local gov- ernment workers, if the stale so dc- ;lrcd. All told, some people would be covered, compared with the now. The social security report favored adding all these people and more.
