I think that "getting rid of the Millers" would be an equally complex problem. Unless they proved positively criminal, he'd be unlikely to fire such long-term employees. And getting adequate replacements, especially by the 1960s, would not be easy.

"I'm a T.A. in the English Dept."
I never talked that way when I was a grad student. When asked when I did, I
said that I was a grad student. If asked what I lived on, I would add that
I worked as a teaching assistant. In my experience (and that was at two
large universities - Ohio State and University of Texas), that was what most grad
students said. Your experience may be different from mine, but the grad
students I knew didn't talk of being a teaching assistant as their main job,
just as part of being a grad student.
