LO VOLUME 92 — NUMBER 308 ROCKY CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Gross Rips Congress Raise Plan WASHINGTON (AP) - Al lame duck effort is brewing for congressmen to vote themselves a pay raise of up to $15,900 and boost salaries for other top federal officials. Staff proposals disclosed Tuesday by Rep. H. R. Gross (R-Iowa) would boost congressmen’s $42.50O-a-year pay to between $55,400 and $58,400 by 1977. Gross said the effort is ob-v i o u s I y i planned during congress’ lame duck session, which starts next week, in what he called “an almost incredible, unconscionable move at this moment.” Chairman Gale McGee (D-Wyo.) of the senate post office committee confirmed that pay raise proposals have been drafted but suggested no effort will be made to put one through congress unless President Ford leads the drive. Thinks It Needed McGee said through a spokesman he thinks a raise for congressmen, federal judges and agency supervisors is needed, particularly by 9,000 to 10,000 supervisors whose pay is now frozen at $36,000. But he said, in view of the senate’s rejection in March of proposed raises, including a hike to $52,800 for congressmen, it would be useless to make UNITKD NATIONS, N. Y.
