Contact Rick at The Newspaper, 419 Main Street, 649-9014. There's a maxim that says 65 is officially old age. At that point, we have to start considering the needs of an elderly person. But that is not necessarily true if you're talking about a member of a minority group, according to Dr. Daniel Gallego, professor of sociology at Weber State College. The average life expectancy ex-pectancy for Hispanics is 59, he said. Most of these people don't even reach age 62 the minimum age for collecting Social Security. Even worse, he pointed out, is that President Reagan hopes to bail out the .....ju.j.umm'iiiiwi F p imiiiiiiiiii ill l I i II n i i g" i (? Um.wmmm a mm r 4 lii f V 3". UP JN 11- wan mjk I3i1f.fi .

While he worries about this situation, Gallego also said, "If we don't make radical changes in Social Security, we'll be in trouble." Dr. Gallego is in a position to make his feelings heard. He recently was named a member of the White House National Advisory Council to the 1981 Conference on Aging. Gallego, who was raised as a migrant worker, has published research papers and worked on policy conferences concerned with minorities and aging. Sen Orrin Hatch said he and colleague Jake Garn lobbied hard for Gallego's appointment, appoint-ment, "...they couldn't get anybody who is more eminently qualified from an academic viewpoint, and whose knowledge and experience ex-perience is as great as Dan's," Hatch said. Gallego said the current administration thinks benefits should be reserved more for the elderly over 74, and less for the 65-74 age group, which supposedly is more independent and self-sustaining. self-sustaining. "But when did you ever see a 62-year-old Hispanic still working out on a farm?" he asked. The average life expectancy expec-tancy for whites is 73.9 years, he said. Blacks have one of the best average life spans for minorities 65 years which reflects the Keys to saving on auto insurance Farmers gives auto insurance insur-ance discounts to good students, people who haven't smoked for two years, multiple car families, and even good drivers between be-tween the ages of 30 and 60.

"And Hispanics are at least better off than Native Americans. Indians live to around 51 to 52 years," he said. The demands on the Social Security program will grow, he said. "There used to be ten taxpayers supporting a single recipient. Now there are 3-4 taxpayers for every one person on benefits. By the year 2000, there will be 2'2-3 people supporting one recipient." Between 1960 and 1980, the number of people in the 58-and-over age bracket increased in-creased by 44. By 2010, the program will face its greatest challenge, he said, as the baby boom after World War II reaches Social Security age. "I think Reagan is doing the best that he can for the elderly," Gallego said. "There was a lot of fat in those federal programs." There are numerous factors fac-tors that influence the shorter shor-ter life expectancy for Hispanics. One of the more important is occupation. "Utah Hispanics in the past worked on mines and railroads," he said. "The newer generation is different." dif-ferent." Another important factor is diet and nutrition an area where old habits die hard. "The Spanish elderly are so used to eating their own kind of food, when a government dietician comes along with meatloaf and chopped-up eggplant, they prefer their own diet." The same problem occurs with elderly Italians and Poles, he said. If Hispanics have any problem greater than health, it might be their lack of political clout. Unlike the black population, the Chicanos are unable to form effective lobbies since they break down into many diverse di-verse groups Mexican-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, etc., Gallego said. "There are 8-12 million illegal aliens who will not come out and vote for fear of being deported." Hispanics are lucky, he added, if they benefit from 15-17 of the funds handed out at a state level. - Gallego was a! migfalit worker in California until he was 18. "A good soul an Anglo paid for my initial entry into college," he said. "After that, it was my responsibility to work and support myself." He went from undergraduate work at BYU to a Masters program at Mississippi State in 1963 and 1964. He taught sociology at Oklahoma City University from 1965-70, gained a position at Weber in 1971 (and won the college's Distinguished Presidential Professor award last year) and picked up a doctorate from Utah State University in 1975. Among many other credentials, Gallego served on the board of the National Policy Center of Health and Aging, and worked as a director of the Western Gerontological Society. He was president of the National Hispanic Council on Aging in 1980. He has worked on numerous sociology projects for instance, a recent study on what happens when you move patients from one nursing home to another. "It has been supposed that the mortality rate increases," he said, "but the study found this didn't happen." Nursing home care is one of the many topics to be raised at the third White House Conference on Aging. (One has been held every decade, beginning in 1961.) Long-term care is one of the fastest-growing areas, he said. Gallego predicts nursing nur-sing home service will increase in-crease dramatically in the 1990s. But costs are difficult to manage. "In Utah, care for one person is an average of $1,200 a month," he said. "Patients won't be able to handle that after the federal cuts in Medicare. We should push alternatives, such as elderly roommates, . or family care for their own elderly." As a member of the conference's con-ference's advisory council, Gallego will help the 2,000 state delegates put together some 75 policy recommendations. recommen-dations. The conference will be held Nov. 31 through Dec. 3. The results of the conference con-ference can't be predicted. But it seems safe to say that if the recommendations of people like Daniel Gallego are allowed to gather dust on the shelf in the future, then many of America's elderly may soon join them there.
