Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 23, 1956, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home Where Look More to the Future Than to the Past ASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKIS ALL NORTH OWANS NEIfiHBORS JIOME EDITION Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY APRIL 23 1956 Consists of Two Over WASHINGTON pensions would be tied in with social security payments and gradually eliminated under a proposal offered Sunday by President Eisenhowers Com mission on Veterans Benefits The proposal was one of 70 ma d e to the President in a lengthy report which if adopted would greatly change the benefit program now cover ing the nations 22 million vet erans The recommended changes in volve GI insurance disability compensation survivor bene fits widows pensions readjust ment benefits Veterans Admin istration structure discharge benefits GI loar privileges and servicemens benefits The report did little to chart the actual impact of the recom mendations it contained but the proposals apparently would lower or cut out many of the payments now being made to veterans servicemen and sur vivors The recommendation to tie in veterans pensions with social security for example would re duce some pensions since more than half of the pen sioned veterans are drawing so cial security payments These under the commissions recom mendation would be deducted from pension payments Maxi mum combined payments would be a month for a single veteran or a month for one with a dependent wife The proposals are bound to stir up controversy because they conflict sharply with the benefit programs advocated by various veterans organizations Timothy J Murphy com mander of the Veterans of For One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE Quinoj 930 Sunday KGLO KiOO ii5 Sunday WOI Ames 4640 Thursday WSUI la CHy 910 Saturday Our Child Labor Laws Need Study lyrORE and more I am con eluding that our child labor laws were designed for the dis tant past rather than for the present They are a product of the socalled sweat shop era in our national development not contemporary times in which juvenile delinquency is just about the most vexing single problem facing the United States All the emphasis in our child labor laws is placed on making it difficult if not impossible for a youngster to learn about the dignity of labor And its almost the unanimous opinion of judges and others who deal most inti mately with juvenile delinquency that idleness is the foremost breeder of mischief among our boys and girls la my whole life I cant re member ever having met up wit a case in which a youngster o a grownup for that wa really harmed by overwork Iv seen it used as an excuse mans times but I never have encount ered an instance in which th evidence seemed to support th claim Nothing to Do Oh the other hand I have seen many they run into th in which youngster have got themselves into trouble bad trouble for the obvious rea son that they didnt have any thing worthwhile to occupy thei time and energy There was a time in England and perhaps to a lesser extent in our own country in which grasp ing industrialists cashed in on child labor in what Ive alread referred to as sweat shops This was a favorite subject for Charles Dickens But that was in another cen tury Our socalled industrial rev olution hadnt yet become mech anized The simple monotonou tasks involved in quantity produc lion in those days a century or so ago could be done by childish hands There was need for re form Those Days Are Gone But were not living in those days any more Modern indus try has no place for child labor in the scheme of things Thats true today and its going to be even more true in the future And yet as I have already pointed out our child labor laws seem to be aimed at those con ditions long since gone and for gotten From two judges with extended and extensive contacts with juve nile cases one of them in Se attle the other in North Carolina I have some enthusi astic backing for the point of view Ill be expressing in this little visit with you Writing in the American Mag azine Judge William G Long of the Superior Court of Seattle summed up his two decades of contact with the juvenile court in these words In my experience as a judge I have yet to see a youthful seri ous offender whose trouble was not caused to a large extent by OldFashioned Work Then he added this significant sentence On the other hand I have seen many youngsters whose lives have been salvaged through plain oldfashioned Listen to this further testi JCONTINUED ON PAGE 2 eign Wars said the VFW sup ports many of the recommend ations but added A number of them particu ularly those that would throw the veterans pension program into the social security pro gram are highly objectionable and should be denounced by all J Addington Wagner na tional commander of the Ameri can Legion said the recom mendations appear to be based upon a composite of fact and theory and warrant the most careful study of to Cut Veterans Benefits On the other hand Kenneth M Birkhead executive direc tor of the American Veterans Committee said the recom mendations are a magnifi cent contribution in bringing sanity and realism to the na tions programs of veterans benefits and In its report the commission said todays veterans programs should place emphasis on those programs which take care of the needs arising directly out of military service Veter ans with no serviceconnected disability after readjustment should be considered in the same category as citizens who are not The major recommendations if approved by Eisenhower and passed by Congress would Revise the system of rating and paying compensation to veterans with service connected disabilities so that statutory awards for loss of parts of the body would be eliminated Vet erans with minor disabilities would get less and those with total disability would get more Put the World War II and YOUNG SLAYER HELD Robert lield leaves state police headquarters at Stafford bprmg Sunday after admitting he murdered his

Stevenson said baffled and uncertain leader hip has left the Countrys foreign flairs in worse shape than when he Republicans took office three ears ago Eisenhower besides voicing the ptimistic world view suggested reation of a advisory oard of private citizens to help dvise on foreign affairs Eisenhowers speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors steered clear of attacks on the Democrats

Monday for positive unity in the free world in the face of Soviet soft talk and called for development of the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza tion into something more than a military pact The time has come to advance NATO from its initial phase into the totality of its Dulles said in a speech prepared for The Associated Press annual luncheon Some Changes Dulles did not spell out in his prepared text just what he had in mind as to NATO But he talked more economic develop about ment and more independence in discussing the attempts by Western nations to improve the worlds lot Aides suggested in Washington that Dulles speech might be com parable to one made by the then secretary George C Marshall at Harvard University June 5 1947 Marshall at that time proposed a European selfhelp program with United States backing that even tually became known as the Mar shall Plan Necessary Alliance Dulles said in developing the main theme of his address that the North Atlantic Treaty was a necessary alliance to draw the free world together against the threat of Soviet militarism continued But the time has come I be lieve to consider whether its or ganization does not need to be further developed if it is ade quately to serve the needs of this and coming generations If that be the common desire of the NATO member nations the United States will join eagerly in exploring the possibilities which now beckon us Dulles said he expected the question of further developing NATO to be taken up at the NATO Ministerial Council opening May 4 at Paris He will attend British Hear of Claims Margaret Hubby
