Delegates are elected from the 11 Area Agency on Aging Dis- tricts to both the Silver Haired Senate and the Silver Haired House. During the three-day session, pieces of "legislation" are written, sent to committee and debated and voted on by the 66 Silver Haired legislators. Of the 20-plus bills deliberated this year by the Silver Haired Legislature, II survived and were pass- ed by both the House and Senate. Of these, under the rules of the program, five were then prioritized for ~ransmission to the actual Legislature. The five chosen were deemed to represent the most pressing needs of citizens 60 years and older in our state. And, as has been the practice in the past, the five bills will receive consideration for possi- ble introduction into the Oklahoma Legislature when it reconvenes in January. The five measures ap- proved for referral, in order of their valuation, CHILl & BEAN SUPPER Friday,Nov. 2, 19841-5 to 7 p.m. Galen Lions Den Pie . 50' a piece by Perkins Chapter #119, Order'of the Eastern Star are: (i) Health Care Cost Containment; {2){legisla- tion regarding the crea- tion of a) Living Will; {3) Nurses Aid Certification; (4) Community Based In- Home Care; and (5) Medi- caid Coverage/Health Applicances. Additionally, the Silver Haired Legislature created a position state- ment containing more than twenty statements of support for issues ranging from the adop- tion of a statewide vic- tim's assistance/restitu- tion program for older persons victimized by fraud to the establish- ment of a National Silver Haired Congress to meet biannually. Another, similar group of psuedo-legislators began their meetings im- mediately after the con- clusion of the Silver Haired Legislature last week, also. That group, the Oklahoma Inter- collegiate legislature, meets annually to draft and vote on bills and resolutions to send the State Legislature. Their procedures are similar to those of the Silver Haired Legislature and valuable information il- lustrating the feelings of our college-aged citizens from every corner of the state is gained through their efforts. So, in separate but similar group meetings last week at the State Capitol, both young and old Oklahomans gath- ered to expend their time, ator "No one works harder or accomplishes more for Oklahoma."

We can with your us show you the advantages investing a Payne County (Individual Retirement Account) II 1111 ~mml talent and resources for no other purpo s than to better learn the legislative process in Oklahoma and to trans- mit their beliefs, con- cerns and feelings to the state's lawmakers. I believe I can speak for each of my colleagues when I say we deeply ap- preciate the work of such groups. State Senators and Representatives are annually beset by lob- byists, journalists and others regarding the issues we must research, understand and vote on. When we receive mater- ial we know has already been researched, debated and voted on by well run, simulated legislatures, we are assured valid points are being brought to our attention. It is very gratifying to me, personally, to see literally hundreds of "legislators" meet to open their minds, offer their thoughts and feel- ings to one another, com- promise and come to agreements for the pur- pose of communicating their points of view to legislators regarding the issues which affect them. We, as legislators, can ask no more than this from our citizens. As always, I am available to anyone who might haye a question or comment regarding any issues we may handle at the State Capitol.

It was nice to have the Earl Clarks and the Richard Grimms there. There has been a few times neither family have been able to attend. Ninety-three folks at- tended Monday night music including fifteen musicians. Claude and I saw Sophia Rogers in the eye doctor's office Monday morning. She is getting along pretty good and would like very much to have anyone who can to come by the Westhaven Nursing Home to see her. We also went by the hospital to visit Jim Rylant. He looks good but his condition will take time to improve. He enjoys having company also. Widows Luncheon will be Thursday Nov. I. Hostesses Monday night were Zula Hender- son and Gertrude Newport. We have the Center decorated for the Hallowe'en party and we are expecting a large crowd. The Pot Luck dinner last Wednesday brought out a big crowd and lots of good food. The Beltone Consul- tant was very busy Tues- day morning and up un- til the middle of the after- noon.
