Ills crusade to help the seemingly helpless dates back 38 years, to a day in the house of representativ(»s when he cosponsored a bill making it illegal for government offices to routinely reject job applied lions from qualified blind workers. The post office department was particularly difficult during the hearings on Capitol Hill. but the bill passed and since then there have been inspiring gains among the nation’s estimated 211 million handicapped Senator Randolph is still at it. now as chairman of the senate subcommittee on the handicapped Ile had much to do with last year’s strong Rehabilitation Act and Regulations which pro\ ides for penalties against private holders of government contracts if they refuse* to hire* a qualified handicapped person. Right lo Work In effect, the handicapped of this land have now established the same right-to-work status as the rest of the minorities It was harder than you'd most com pas think, in this sinuate land I akees of the Iliff) census counted handicapped members Of America's households for the hrs! time iii the* history of the country thus ending an incredible oversight The census showed that one mil of 13 adults in the U. S. is handicapped to varying degree* That came to about ll million Americans who had grown to maturity during a period when few officials iii Washington seemed to give a damn Their chances of em-* ploy merit were lessened by the bleak fact that, by and large, they were less educated than Americans of tin* same age groups They had had more trouble getting into schools Twenty-two percent of them had never gotten beyond the eighth grade. Their income. if they had any at all, was commensurately small, no matter how bright they were There were computer operators among them, teachers, librarians, writers, lawyers. etc Rut their per capita income barely topped $7.00(1 But the day is here, or at least it is nigh.

The following day. the people iii charge put me in a little room, locked the door. and piped the lectures in to me . .

Chief Justice Burger says the legal profession has failed to discipline errant lawyers. “For the last 20 years, at least, the disciplining of lawyers has been almost nonexistent," Burger told the National College of the State Judiciary. "The public has felt the pain but they don't know what has caused it or what to do about it.” he said. ★ NOW thru TUES. ★ OPEN 8 OO 6300 SIXTH ST.

Price Freeze One of the* most spectacular economic* dec isions of recent decades, an impulsive one iii the eyes of even some of his adv isers, was Hic* imposition of a price freeze in August, 1971 Following this were four phases of controls and decontrols. not in a steady sequence but marked by some impatience and unsteadiness, such us an abrupt return to a price freeze from June 13 to Aug. 12, 1973 Involvement of this sort. of course, is hardly synonymous with a laissez-faire, or hands off policy. The free markets that now are to guide* the return to stability were suspended because they failed to do the job The current policy of budget and monetarv restraint is, Iherefore hardly a continua lion of earlier approaches lo the inflation battle, although there might be a few threads lhal weave their way continuously The President seemed even to concede an earlier lack of patience when he wrote The Kconomic Report of the President in February “Four Lessons” "There are at least four lessons we can learn from our past experience in combating inflation be said, listing the first as "The* importance* of patience." The cither lessons named were "The importance of the rest cif the world, the importance* of produc t ion. the* importance* of free* markets.” In regard to the* latter, he* wrote* "In the past several years, under the* pressure* cd emergency conditions, we* have* macle great but temporary, departure's from reliance* on free prices and free markets. In spec ial circumstance's a rut for short periods these departures have* been helpful.” But, he added, “taken together, these experiences have confirmed the view that the free market is. in general, our most efficient system of economic* organization .*’ And so, after some partially successful and some dismally unproductive flirtations with a John Cunniff c ontrolled economy, the ad ministration now seems ready to return to laissez faire The problem for the administration now may be ifs ability to convince the public* ON THIS DATE in 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain on the expedition that resulted in the* discovery of America.
