Rotarians Told War
Chances Decreasing
HOUSTON — The possi-
bilities of nuclear war are less
today but that does not mean
violent conflict will decrease,
Dr. Geoffrey Kemp, a specialist
in armaments said here Tues-
day.
Kemp, with the Institute for
Strategic Studies in London,
warned delegates to the 63rd
annual convention of Rotary In-
ternational that as the major
nuclear powers achieve more
arms control, "we should not
think that this is going to her-
ald an era of peace."
On the same panel, John A.
Hannah, administrator of the
U.S. Agency for International
Development, said while the
cold war is winding down, "an-
other confrontation may tie
Winding up. This is the con-
frontation between rich and
Poor."
A third panelist, Dr. Jan
Prawitz, special assistant for
disarmament of the Swedish
Department of Defense, said
ordinary citizens can aid the
cause of disarmament by in-
forming themselves and think-
ing about the problems in order
to produce more ideas for dis-
armament.
Kemp said the recent agree-
ment between the United States
and the Soviet Union to limit
the qiantity of arms each may
possess means both sides will
try to improve the quality of
their forces.
'In short, I do not envisage
major financial savings as a re-
sult of the SALT talks, and I do

Register For Work
WASHINGTON - A
new federal law requiring 1.5
million men and women on wel-
fiire to register for work or job
training is expected to have
minimal impact on the nation's
swollen welfiire rolls.
High unemployment and a
tight federal budget are ex-
pected to limit the Impact of
Workfiire, the only portion of
President Nixon's welfiire re-
form bill to become law to
date.
About 140,000able-bodied wel-
&re fathers will And them-
selves automatically signed up
by local welfiire agencies be-
fore the law takes effect July 1.
Hundreds of thousands of wel-
fiire mothers will be added to
the list as their recertlfication
date comes up In the next six
months.
But fewer than half are likely
to be called in for appraisal in-
terviews afterward. Those most
likely to be placed in jobs with-
out further training will !>e
called whenever an opening oc-
curs.
Exempt from work registra-
tion are mothers of pre-
schoolers, adults caring for
someone else at home, young-
sters over 16 attending school
fulltime, wives of registered
men and anyone living more
than one hour away from ai
approved project.
The $250 million requested by
the White House, plus another
$205 million budgeted earlier
for the Work Incentives (WIN)
Program, more than doubles
spending the last four years.
The program would create 8,000
public service jobs and 24,500
new job training post positions.
'It will be a rather limited
program," .said an official of
the Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfcire which origl-
nallyaskedfor $565 million, lat-
er scaled to $450 million.
HEW undersecretary John G.
Veneman said, however, "for
the number of people we'll
reach, I think $250 million is
enough."
The WIN program has had a
dissappointing record, plagued
from the siart by "buckpass-
ing" between HEW and the La-
bor Department with state ad-
ministration compounding the
problem, Veneman said.
