held its own By JOSEPH SLEVIN New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Somebody punned that they were a very Tony pair of bell ringers and they were indeed One was Secretary of the Treasury Robert B Anderson and the other was Kennedy ad ministration Secretarydesignate Douglas Dillon and the bell they were working on was a replica of the Liberty Bell qn the cole west steps of the Treasury De partment There was an occasion as there always is for a Treasury bellringing and the official rea son was that this is the begin ning of the 20th anniversary of the savings bond program and the beginning of yet one more savings bond drive THE PROGRAM started in World War II and the Liberty Bell became an added attrac tion in 1950 when the Treasury had an Independence Savings Bond Drive The Treasury has objec tives for the new campaign as it always does and the objec tives of course call for selling more bonds to more people It wants to add another 1200000 people to the 8000000 who now buy the bonds through payroll savings plans and it wants to boost savings bonds sales 6 per cent above the 1960 total Those are estimable goals but the recent performance of the savings bond program gives little reason to hope that they will be achieved The fact of the matter is that the Series E bond program the heart of the savings bond campaign has barely held its own for the past six years THE PUBLIC owned 537510 000000 of Series E bonds at the end of 1955 and at the closeof 1960 The volume has bounced around over the intervening years The Treasury is faced with tough competition It offers 3 per cent interest to Series E bond buyers but the same people can get up to 4 per cent by putting their money in a governmentinsured savings and loan association The big flaw in the Series E bond program for a long time was that the government did not pay a fair return to the inex perienced investors who bought the savings bonds It began by paying a reason able 29 per cent during World War II and it continued to pay 29 per cent long after other rates bad risen markedly It boosted the ante to 3 per cent early in this decade then went up to SA per cent in the spring of 1957 artd finally to the current return of 3 per cent in mid1959 THE PER CENT return still may be a shade lower than it ought to be but its as close to a fair return as the savings bond buyers have received in a long time The Treasury doesnt have a free hand since it can pay no more than Congress authorizes The Mutual Savings Banks Savings and Loans and other bidders for savings publicly praise the savings bond pro gram but they privately lodge vigorous protests with their congressmen every time the s Treasury asks that the rate be increased The total public investment in Series E savings bonds has remained as high as it has in recent years only because the Series E bond has an involun tary interest accumulation fea ture The Series E bonds are sold at a discount and a buyer does not receive current inter est payments Instead he re ceives his interest in a lump sum when he redeems his bonds SAMI DATfIWOM AP Phototax CAMPAIGNS two big personali ties in last years presidential campaign had

assured Support for Rep Shaff DES MOINES The first of an expected series of legis ative reapportionment propos als was filed in the Iowa Senate Tuesday with the introduction ct the Shaff plan The bill is similar to the one introduced in the 1959 Legisla ture by Sen David 0 Shaff R Clinton and was one of the maj or causes of controversy in that session The proposed constitutional amendment offered Tu e s d a y would create a Senate of 60 members elected from popula tion districts mapped by a bi partisan commission It would set up a House of 99 members one from each county THIS PROVISION for an area House with one member from each county is in accord with the proposals of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation on reappor tionment It also suits the views of small county legislators who want to be sure their counties have a representative in future Legis latures When the Shaff plan was in troduced two years ago it had the support of the same groups CLOUDY The Senate turned down the Shaff amendment in 1959 but the margin was small The Senate voted 2524 then to prefer a plan which would have based the Senate on area and the House on population The speed with which the Shaff plan made its appear ance in the 1961 session indicat ed that its backers hope to push it through the Legislature quickly BESIDES SHAFF the meas ure was sponsored by Sens Earl Elijah RClarence and Irving D Long RManchester The Senate only in its second day of the new session has yet 0 appoint its redistricting com mittee which will study any re apportionment proposals offered in that house Republican party
