sus One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor Voting Yourself a Pay Increase TT used to be accepted almost a a political axiom that for an of ficeholder to be a party to givinj himself a pay boost during th term for which he was elected wa the one best and surest way to in s fare defeat for himself at the nex election But apparently tha axiom rule or whatever it is ha been abrogated Congress at thi very time has such a course o action quite definitely in mind Even if the President in hi State of the Union message hadnt expressed the view that a substantial increase was long many and perhaps most of the members of both houses of Congress would have en tertained the same idea and acted on it Once a favorite technique for those flying into the face of pub lie opinion in this matter of rais ing their own to have the matter decided by an unre corded vote Then their constituents could never place the blame on any individual The plan probably backfired more often than sue ceeded but it was sometimes viewed as a justifiable gamble Complying With a Request Now however the situation has changed Senators and Representa tives can assume a sanctified look askthis rhetorical question Who am I to oppose our Presi dent on something he insists is in the national interest Some members of both houses undoubtedly will seek to make po litical capital out of their No vote when the proposition comes up for a showdown But whether any penalty will attach to a Yes vote remains to be seen Congres sional consensus seems to be against that possibility When the proposal was up last there was an attempt to attach the pay boost for Congressmen to a pay boost for the federal judiciary There was an assumption1 and a wellbased assumption I believe the rather universal favor for paying federal judges more would lessen opposition to in creased pay for Senators and Rep resentatives Somewhere along the line how ever some sand got tossed into the gears The proposal died tbornin It Was Already Planned Just what it is that boosted the courage of Congressmen now isnt entirely clear But its and it was observable even before the Presidents State of the Union recommendation of the ac tion About the only question to be answered is How much Members of both houses now re ceive an annual salary of Of this amount is ear marked Expenses and made tax exempt There was more than a little criticism of this feature of the measure back in 1946 when it was adopted There seemed to be something phony about it all Congressmen not only can but do point out that in the nine years since that last pay hike the dollar has depreciated in purchasing pow er by about 27 per cent They go a step further and argue that a rise in Congressional pay to around a year would be needed to make it equal in 1946 dol lars That is the lowest of the figures now being mentioned In 1953 the Senate Judiciary commit tee proposed as a fair salary for Representatives and Senators That proposal however was shelved by our gunshy solons in favor of a study on the subject by an outside commission a Year Suggested Just c year ago that body re CONTINUED ON PAGE 7 Theaters Boxing Hit by Ruling WASHINGTON UP The Su preme Court decided Monday that the championship prize fight and legitimate theater businesses are both subject to antitrust laws Chief Justice Warren delivered both opinions The court was unanimous in the case of the the aters nut the court split 62 in the case dealing with professional boxing Justice Frankfurter wrote dissenting opinion in which Jus tice Minton joined Minton also wrote a separate dissenting opin ion Justice Jackson died before the case was argued The Justice Department had asked the high tribunal to de clare the promotion of profes sional boxing within the scope of the federal antitrust act so that it could prosecute a suit which charged a monopoly exists in the business The department appealed from a decision by U S District Judge Gregory F Noonan in New York dismissing the government1 monopoly complaint The theater case stemmed from a ruling by S District Judge John C Knox in New York that the theater business hadthe sanve standing as big league base ball in being exempt from the Sherman AntiTrust Act Noonan similarly relied on the high courts previous ruling on baseball in throwing out the box ing case But the Justice Department argued before the Supreme Court that baseball and boxing are markedly different in the way in which they make money They said boxing could not survive without television revenues from matches broadcast nationwide Youths Case Turned Over to Gilman A Mason City teenager who ad mitted setting two fires and the heft of mail Monday afternoon was urned over to Juvenile Probation Officer

can end only when the United States ends its inter vention and withdraws its forces from Formosa he said is why the council should act urgent y on the Soviet demand for the immediate withdrawal of all
