Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Handicapped Can Handle Many Jobs B.v Dr. AiHlolniiin "As a doctor, what do you think of promotions like Na- lionul Employ (ho Hundi- capped reader asks I don't sec you can ex- pect a handicapped person tn handle typical office or factory job." Our reader evidently thinks Employ the Handicapped week aims to get the handi- capped hired for any job, even if their disability would pre- vent them from carrying it out. That's not the purpose at all. This national campaign, sponsored by the President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, just tries to underscore the great strengths many handicapped people have to offer a business or industry. It doesn't say, "Hire this person because he's hand- icapped" but rather "Give tr s person a chance to show yr.j what he can do." Skills As a doctor, I know that people have all kinds of dif- ferent skills and. strengths. Dr. Andaman physical and mental. I also know you don't need legs to be a great executive. Employers who've hired the handicapped know that they carry their workload, often out-perform- ing the "able-oodied." Unfortunately, discrimina- tion runs deep.. In fact, I was interested to note recently that employers start thinking of the handicapped as being "n- ver the hill" much earlier than the able-bodied. If you're handicapped, you'd better be under 25 if you want a good chance of finding and keeping a job. But able-bodied workers don't begin to experience age discrimination until 40, Succeed Simon Olshansky, director of Boston's Community Workshops, says his studies of handicapped workers show that the younger client Id through 25 is more likely to succeed in continuing employ- ment than is the older person. His report appears in Reha- bilitation Literature, a pub- lication of The National Easi- er Seal Society. "This is a youth-oriented Olshansky says. "Employers aren't psycholo- gists; they're just regular peo- ple. They like youth; they like good looks; they avoid people handicapped or not who arc getting a little old and out of shape." He suggests employers look at employees as indi- viduals with their own unique qualities and strengths. I agree, We'll all be better off. BIG GEORGE! Virgil Partch Tlic Cedar Rapids Gazette: Fri..

Prosecutors Say NEW ORLEANS (AP) Federal prosecutors say they can't handle a sharp increase in criminal and civil cases unless the budget-cutting Ford administration spends more money to hire more lawyers. The U. S. attorneys delivered that message to Attorney General Saxbe and other top justice department officials at a departmental conference with the federal prosecutors. Deputy Attorney General Laurance Silberman promised that (he department will place a high priority on winning funds for some increase in (he staffs of the 94 U. S. attorneys' offices. "We need more bodies. This is what comes through every lime you get a bunch of U.

S attorney-in Detroit, said the prosecutors need at leas another 3511 lawyers plus ai equal number of secretaries, and support personnel. That could cost more than million, although departmen officials attending tin conference said they had m firm estimate. The prosecutors and depart inenl officials discussed I hi demands in interviews after their closed-door meetings. If the extra manpower is not forthcoming, the prosecutors said they'll he forced to reshuffle priorities. But several said the current emphasis on investigating and prosecuting corruption and other white-collar crimes probably would continue.

For example, department' officials predicted that 10.000 civil cases involving the Health, Education and Welfare department would he ponding m 1970. Many involve claims 'for Social Security disability benefits for victims of black lung disease, a product of recent legislation.

That contract makes against any 3-2 trump break provided the opening lead is not ruffed. If you and your favorite partner get to swen you have no play for that con- tract irrespective of how anything breaks. We leel that most players will land at six hearts. In that case it is up to South to find a sure-fire way to bring that contract in. It is done by means of a safety play. South wins Ihe club lead in dummy and ruffs a club. Then he draws trumps. After this start he should caMi one of dummy's high diamonds and play ace-king-small ol spades. If diamonds were going to break nieely there was no need for this safety play but it is necessary against the actual 4-1 break. Furthermore, it is a rather unusual safety play since the safely play trick was a sure loser in any event See how it works! If East wins he has in give South a ruff and discard. If West wins he can lead a diamond but irres- pective of which diamond he leads, his diamond trick will have disappeared. You, South, hold: K84 VK 2 What do you do now? Just notrump.
