I don't think, however, that you are correct on the "no charge" idea. There are fees, but generally quite reasonable fees. Many, many corporations are now offering this plan, aided by brokers and, in some cases, by commercial banks. Any young investor interested in a long-term program of acquiring investment quality shares should consult his broker or commercial banker. Q I am wondering whether, at age 75, I shouldn't put into an annuity in order to bolster my income. I have a son and grandchildren I would like to help after I'm gone.

Why should an elderly retired person lie punished for trying lo add a few dollars of needed income' Why should deprecia- tion lax shelters be granted only to business? People depreciate, too and faster than machines. 1 don't know where you got Ihe idea 1 think our present lax laws are fair. Certainly people depreciate, too. And I find far too many eases of the elderly who are paying taxes which, even though modest by most standards, still cut inln their skimpy budget. While you're presenting tax injustices, explain to me why a company which installs a bet- ter machine to make a better product and a higher profit (and pay higher taxes) gets a tax write-off for that expendi- ture whereas a parent who struggles to lay out a year so that his son or daughter can become a higher-earner (and higher tax-paying) professional gets no tax credit for that or more expen- diture?

Baldwin, hale and hearty at age 90, organized the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920 and served as its executive director until 1950. The activities of (he execu- tive branch "can be construed in terms of civil even though (he issues of freedom, liberty and equality of Americans are not primarily affected, he said in an inter- view Monday. But he said the issues involve, the concept of government at its very heart, explaining that the balance of power between congress and the executive branch has been upset. And that "is the road toward dictatorship, not that we have it now Baldwin spoke of the corrup- tion of the executive branch by the "enormous sums of money" raised during President Nixon's 1972 election campaign and the use of the FBI, the CIA and the Internal Revenue Service for political ends. The administration's activi- ties are a "scandal of the first he said. He said he hopes the con- sequences are election reforms of significant magnitude so that those elected to office will be beyond suspicion and ci- tizens again can trust their government. Baldwin said the emergence of self-assertion by blacks, In- dians, Chicanos, Puertoi Ricans, women, homosexuals and other minorities throughout the world was "something very hopeful and very new." And he said he has "never seen a time when debate and public discussion were freer than they're quite popular, in fact." Baldwin said he continues lo work at the ACLU office in New York one day a week and to consult more frequently at the U.

Airmen in Thailand Net Pennies BANGKOK (UPI) American airmen on a U.S. air force base in central Thailand have collected pennies in a drive to recirculate the scarce coins, U.S. military authorities said Thursday.
