INDUSTRIAL AND PROFESSIONAL DECENTRALIZATION MIGHT HELP TO PREVENT THE UPROOTING OF CITIZENS FROM THEIR ACCUSTOMED ENVIRONMENT. DEFECTS IN OFFICIAL AGENCIES WHICH PROVOKE FRUSTRATION AND CRIME (ADMINISTRATIVE CLUMSINESS, ANONYMITY OF THE SYSTEM ARE CRITICIZED. THE PUBLIC NEEDS TO BE BETTER EDUCATED IN THE VARIOUS FORMS OF FRAUD; THE PENALTIES FOR FRAUD SHOULD BE INCREASED. WITH REGARD TO FAMILY PROTECTION, THE COMMISSION PLANS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS ON CHILD REARING PROBLEMS TO BE AIRED THROUGH MASS-MEDIA AND CHANGES IN OFFICIAL WORKING SCHEDULES WHICH WILL PERMIT WORKING MOTHERS TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN.
