1981 Parley on children to study effect of divorce

A Huston educator will be sworn in Wednesday to head the 1981 White House Conference for Children and Youth, which will examine the effect of America's growing divorce rate on children. Mrs. Marie Oser, who founded the nonprofit Texas Institute for Families Inc., will be sworn in by Patricia Roberts Harris, health and human resources secretary, as executive director of the national conference, to be held in December 1981. The conference will send recommendations to the president on ways to tackle problems over family breakups and other matters affecting young people. The oldest of White House-sponsored conferences, the national meeting on children has been held about every 10 years since 1909, when it was organized by President Theodore Roosevelt.
