Although it is now osi!le to !ring most high !lood ressure under control& the
causes of essential hyertension remain elusive. Dnderstanding how hyertension
!egins is at least artly a ro!lem of understanding when in life it !egins& and this
may !e very early 0 erhas within the first few months of life. 3ince the !eginning
of the century& hysicians have !een aware that hyertension may run in families&
!ut !efore the +C60>s& studies of the familial aggregation of !lood ressure treated
only oulations +* years of age or older. (ew studies were attemted in younger
ersons !ecause of a revailing notion that !lood ressures in this age grou were
difficult to measure and unrelia!le and !ecause essential hyertension was widely
regarded as a disease of adults.
In +C6=& a study of 600 children& ages = to +4& used a secial !lood ressure
recorder which minimizes o!server error and allows for standardization of !lood
ressure readings. ;efore then& it had !een well esta!lished that the !lood ressure
of adults aggregates familially& that is& the similarities !etween the !lood ressure of
an individual and his si!lings are generally too great to !e exlained !y chance. The
+C6+ study showed than familial clustering was measura!le in children as well&
suggesting that factors resonsi!le for essential hyertension are ac/uired in
childhood. Additional eidemiological studies demonstrated a clear tendency for the
children to retain the same !lood ressure atterns& relative to their eers& four
years later. Thus& a child with !lood ressure higher or lower than the norm would
tend to remain higher or lower with increasing age.
7eanwhile& other investigators uncovered a comlex of hysiologic roles 0 including
!lood ressure0 for a vasoactive system called the 'alli'rein0'inin system. Ealli'reins
are enzymes in the 'idney and !lood lasma that act on recursors called 'ininogens
to roduce vasoactive etides called 'inins. 3everal different 'inins are roduced& at
least three of which are ower !lood vessel dilators. Aarently& the 'alli'rein0'inin
system normally tends to offset the elevations in arterial ressure that result from
the secretion of salt0conserving hormones such as aldosterone on the one hand and
from activation of the symathetic nervous system 8which tends to constrict !lood
vessels9 on the other hand.
It is also 'nown that urinary 'alli'rein excretion is a!normally low in su!@ects with
essential hyertension. Fevels of urinary 'alli'rein in children are inversely related to
the diastolic !lood ressure of !oth children and their mothers. %hildren with the
lowest 'alli'rein levels are found in families with the highest !lood ressures. In
addition& !lac' children tend to show somewhat lower urinary 'alli'rein levels than
white children& and !lac's are more li'ely to have high !lood ressure. There is a
great deal to !e learned a!out the !iochemistry and hysiology of the 'alli'rein0'inin
system. ;ut there is the ossi!ility that essential hyertension will rove to have
!iochemical recursors.

7any critics of the current welfare system argue that existing welfare regulations
foster family insta!ility. They maintain that those regulations& which exclude most
oor hus!and and wife families from Aid to (amilies with Deendent %hildren
asistance grants& contri!ute to the ro!lem of family dissolution. Thus& they conclude
that exanding the set of families eligi!le for family assistance lans or guaranteed
income measures would result in a mar'ed strengthening of the low0income family
structure. If all oor families could receive welfare& would the incidence of insta!ility
change mar'edly, The answer to this /uestion deends on the relative imortance of
three categories of otential welfare reciients. The first is the BcheaterB 0 the
hus!and who is reorted to have a!andoned his family& !ut in fact disaears only
when the social casewor'er is in the neigh!orhood. The second consists of a loving
hus!and and devoted father who& sensing his own inade/uacy as a rovider& leaves
so that his wife and children may en@oy the relative !enefit rovided !y u!lic
assistance. There is very little evidence that these categories are significant.
The third category is the unhaily married coule who remain together out of a
sense of economic resonsi!ility for their children& !ecause of the high costs of
searation& or !ecause of the consumtion !enefits of marriage. This grou is
numerous. The formation& maintenance and dissolution off the family is in large art
a function of the relative !alance !etween the !enefits and costs of marriage as seen
!y the individual mem!ers of the marriage. The ma@or !enefit generated !y the
creation of a family is the exansion of the set of consumtion ossi!ilities. The
!enefits of such a artnershi deend largely on the relative dissimilarity of the
resources or !asic endowments each artner !rings to the marriage. Aersons with
similar roductive caacities have less economic BcementB holding their marriage
together. 3ince the family erforms certain functions society regards as vital& a
comlex networ' of social and legal !uttresses has evolved to reinforce marriage.
7uch of the variation in marital sta!ility across income classes can !e exlained !y
the variation in costs of dissolution imosed !y society& eg& division of roerty&
alimony& child suort and the social stigma attached to divorce.
7arital sta!ility is related to the costs of achieving an accetance agreement on
family consumtion and roduction and to the revailing social rice of insta!ility in
the marriage artners> social0economic grou. -xected A(D% income exerts

institutional cost of searation and guarantees a minimal standard of living for wife
and children. 3o welfare oortunities are a significant determinant of family
insta!ility in oor neigh!orhoods& !ut this is not the result of A(D% regulations that
exclude most intact families from coverage. "ather& welfare0related insta!ility occurs
!ecause u!lic assistance lowers !oth the !enefits of marriage and the costs of its
disrution !y roviding a system of government0su!sidized alimony ayments.
=). The author>s rimary concern is to
8A9 interret the results of a survey
8;9 discuss the role of the father in low0income families
8%9 analyze the causes of a henomenon
8D9 recommend reforms in the welfare system
8-9 change u!lic attitude toward welfare reciients
=C. Which of the following would rovide the most logical continuation of the final
aragrah,
8A9 Aaradoxically& any li!eralization of A(D% eligi!ility restrictions is li'ely to intensify&
rather than mitigate& ressures of family sta!ility
8;9 Actually& concern for the individual reciients should not !e allowed to override
considerations of sound fiscal olicy
8%9 In reality& there is virtually no evidence that A(D% ayments have any
relationshi at all to ro!lems of family insta!ility in low0income marriages
8D9 In the final analysis& it aears that government welfare ayments& to the extent
that the cost of marriage is lowered& encourage the formation of low0income families
8-9 Dltimately& the ro!lem of low0income family insta!ility can !e eliminated !y
reducing welfare !enefits to the oint where the cost of dissolution e/uals the cost of
staying married
30. All of the following are mentioned !y the author as factors tending to eretuate
a marriage -H%-AT
8A9 the stigma attached to divorce
8;9 the social class of the artners
8%9 the cost of alimony and child suort
8D9 the loss of roerty uon divorce
8-9 the greater consumtion ossi!ilities of married eole
3+. Which of the following !est summarizes the main idea of the assage,
8A9 Welfare restrictions limiting the eligi!ility of families for !enefits do not contri!ute
to low0income family insta!ility
8;9 %ontrary to oular oinion& the most significant category of welfare reciients is
not the BcheatingB father
8%9 The incidence of family dissolution among low0income families is directly related
to the ina!ility of families with fathers to get welfare !enefits
8D9 2ery little of the divorce rate among low0income families can !e attri!uted to
fathers> deserting their families so that they can /ualify for welfare
8-9 Iovernment welfare ayments are at resent excessively high and must !e
reduced in order to slow the growing divorce rate among low0income families
3=. The tone of the assage can !est !e descri!ed as
8A9 confident and otimistic
8;9 scientific and detached
8%9 discouraged and alarmed
8D9 olite and sensitive
8-9 callous and indifferent
33. With which of the following statements a!out marriage would the author most
li'ely agree,
8A9 7arriage is an institution that is largely shaed !y owerful !ut imersonal
economic and social forces
8;9 7arriage has a greater value to eole in higher income !rac'ets than to eole
in lower income !rac'ets
8%9 3ociety has no legitimate interest in encouraging eole to remain married to
one another
8D9 7arriage as an institution is no longer economically via!le and will gradually give
way to other forms of social organization
8-9 The rising divorce rate across all income !rac'ets indicates that eole are more
self0centered and less concerned a!out others than !efore
34. The assage would most li'ely !e found in a
8A9 amhlet on civil rights

I often hear smo'ers insisting that they have a right to smo'e whenever and
wherever they choose& as though there are no conceiva!le circumstances under
which the law might not legitimately rohi!it smo'ing. This contention is o!viously
indefensi!le. Imlicit in the develoment of the concet of a right is the notion that
one erson>s freedom of action iis circumscri!ed !y the 000000083C9000000. It re/uires
nothing more than common sense to realize that there are siutations in which
smo'ing resents a clear and resent danger: in a crowded theatre& around
flamma!le materials& during ta'e0off in an airlane. #o one would seriously deny the
otential harm of smo'ing in such circumstances more than outweighs the
satisfaction a smo'er would derive from smo'ing. <et& this !alancing is not uni/ue to
situations of otential catastrohe. It alies e/ually well to situations where the
otential in@ury is small& though in most cases& as for examle a erson>s ta!le
manners& the in@ury of the offended erson is so slight we automatically stri'e the
!alance in favor of the erson acting. ;ut once it is recognized that a !alance of
freedoms must !e struc'& it follows that a smo'er has a right to smo'e only when
