The insuranca man was trying to sell him a $10.000.00 insucance policy. He told him he owed it to his wife and family. The old boy said, "Now liste, here. it would be worth $10.000 to my wife to be able to pick OUl anotilct" mail." TBS I met an old boy in fhe hos- pital waitin, room whose wife had just had twins, which made his family number eleven chil- dren. He was tickled to death and I asked him how come h was so happy at having twins when he already had such a large family. He told me he figured that by the tnne he had fourteen or fifteen children ar- ound the house there would be such a crowd that he could slip away for several days at a time and never be missed. YOURS TOM Capital Re There are more than 150 de- partments, agencies and other milts of the executive branch of the federal government. These agencies administer some 4011 dif- Ierent governmental programs, some of which overlap or run parallel to similar programs op- erated by different agencies. This sometimes causes confu- sion. It simply isn't posible for the mayor or city manager o a small town in Oklahoma to be- come thoroughly fJmiliar with the operations of all governmen- tal agencies or with the details of all these 400 programs. Even the experts have trouble trying to stay abreast of the situation. Since my election to the senate, I have been called upon time af- ter time to help a particular conmmnity or group of citizens obtain information about a spec- ific program, and work out the procedures for participating in it, Also, I am a member of the U.S. Senate's Government Oper- atiols Committee which has a responsibility to help simplify and modernize our government structure, and Ira' to Inake it more efficient/ So 1 am keenly aware of the complicated network of federal agencies and programs. I am concerned, and I want to do what [ can to improve the .Sit- uation. For this reason, I am joining -with Senator Abraham 1Ribicoff of Connecticut in cosponsoring a bill to establish a commission on the reorganization and mana- gement of the executive branch. Pcriodicalb', through the years we have made special efforts - such as that of the Hoover Com- mission - to simplify and update our governmental machinery. Some of these special efforts have met with considerable success, and I believe anothea" majo el'- Sen. Fred It. fort is needed now.
