The Opening Session was designed to provide opportunity to welcome the Delegates and to instruct them in their Con- ference tasks. RECOMMENDATION XI Determining Manpotver Need Recruitment and training will be to no avail if 99 there . Therefore, recruiting should be related to useful job opportunities.
At the same time that the circumstances of the elderly and. At- tention should be given to the tecruitmeiit a^d training of minority group. Other initiatives taken on behalf of the elderly included increased financial support for new programs in h^lth care and related social services, housing, manpower training for older workers, and new volunteer opportunities. In an effort to give greater visibility, impaa, and opportum'ty for practical implementation of these research principles, the Delegates to the White House Conference on Aging Section on Researdi and Demonstration recommend the fol- lowing policy proposals. New pro- grams were funded for research and demonstra- tion in aging and for training manpower to serve older people. While women are hot a numerical' minority, diey are underrepresented in high-level rese^ch and aca- demic positions and should be given representa- tion at decision-maldi^ levels in research and demonstration. With the assistance of legislative staff and the consultation of appro- priate officials from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, a compromise Joint Resolution was cleared for passage by the Senate on September 9, by the House on September 12, 1968. RECOMMENDATION VIII Curricula in Aging In order to develpp adequately trained persons in health, allied health, and.other professional fields such as law, architecture, social work, etc., sub^ jea matter on aging must be inserted into pre- service arid inseryice curricjila of professional; khoois inimediateiy. With these substantive differences, the Senate and House^ Joint Resolutions were passed by their respeaive bodies on May 6 and July 30, 1968; The initial* consideration of legislation by sub- committees and then by full committee, and the subsequent passage of the original resolutions just described, involved the active leadership of many senators and representatives. further responsibility of develop- ing an amended, uniform version of the separate Joint Resolutions which would gain the final approval of Congress. All training programs funded on Federal, State and commuiiity levels should aaively recruit faculty and trainees from these groups. Institutional care was increas- ingly allocated by public agencies to the proprie- tary nursing homes, which admittedly needed stronger regulatory measures to improve their standards. Federal support of research and training in separate departments or schools within uiiiversities and separate research agencies should be continued ahd multidiscipli- nary ahd multi-institutional programs should be fostered.
Taxes, especially property taxes, climbed to such levels that many older homeowners were forced to sell and move into cheap^ rented quar- ters. Health services remained fragmented and uncoordinated, resulting in poor delivery of serv- ices to the elderly. Ap- propriation of gehend for programs in the interests of older pehons sl Ku Id cohoin addi- tional funds amounting in die average to no less than 3.5 percent of such expeiiditures, these ad-, ditiohal fands to be allocated for resw^ch, dem- onstration, and evaliiatioh.

Under such circumstances, it was natural and imperative that a concerned Congress should call for a second White House Conference on Aging to clarify ^nd assess the current state of affairs and to initiate a new effort to achieve security and dignity for Americans old people. At all stages of the legislative process, cul- minating in the adoption of the Joint Resolution, there was a strong and wide-ranging agreement on the need and value of holding' a second White House Conference on Aging. The Select Subcommittee on Education of the House Committee on Education and Labor also held hearings where, once again, the testimony demonstrated broad support for congressional authorization of the Conference.
