"I came back because T was yu challenged. I was burned up when - all the so-called wise guys said I was all washed up and that if I ever got into the ring again it would be at the risk of life and limb. Now, it's my life and my limb, isn't it? So I decided to show .'y'em. And I haven't done bad, either, have I ?" That comes close to being the understatement of the season.

YOUR PART/ / TONKaHT/ -'* DAUGHTER OF MINE \i> GOIN6 OUT OM THE STREET IM ADKESSASSHORT A<> THAT.' By EDWARD H. HIGGS Washington, March 25. — (/P) — Prime Minister Churchill's four- year plan for British postwar economy and social security aims broadly at the same goals sought for this country by the National Resources planning board. While Churchill's brief prospectus in his Sunday radio broadcast lacked the details of the voluminous NRPB report submitted to congress March 10, the two follow strikingly similar patterns in projecting a more abundant life after the war. "I was delighted by the extraordinary resemblance which Mr. Churchill's plan has (p our own post-war proposals," said Charles W. Eliot, director of the NRPB. "Since it was proposed by the et- itome of a British Tory, I hope that people will get over thinking that our plan is radical." On these six major points, the plans are generally the same: 1—Expansion of national compulsory insurance. While Churchill left the British program to further tudy and legislative preparation, e made it plain that he favors xlending insurance to all classes for all purposes from the cradle o the grave." The NRPB project- d disability insurance, expansion f unemployment insurance, greal- r aid to the blind and other roups receiving public assistance nd extension of social security enefits to groups not now in- luded. 2—Broadening and improving jnblic health service, Churchill en- isioned a "war upon disease," maternity care, encouragement o; arger families to offset a dwindl- ng birth ;-ate, and milk for babies, declaring "healthy citizens are the reatest asset any country cai inve." The NRPB recommended government cooperation with th medical profession in developing a time payment play for medical care, maternity and child welfare service, free school lunches, creation of a system of regional and local hospitals and other medical personnel and larger appropriations to insure adequate medical care of needy persons. 3—Greater opportunities for education. Predicting the future will be left "to highly educated races who alone can handle the scientific apparatus necessary for preeminence in peace or survival in war," Churchill recommended equal opportunities of education for all classes, a greater spread and increase of facilities for higher education, improvement of schools and additional training for teachers. Coupled with this, he proposed the part-time release of young persons from industry so they will have a chance to carry on general schooling, and specialized training. The equal opportunity for general, specialized and higher education, with the government underwriting such a program if necessary. 4—Postwar projects. Churchill foresaw the reconstruction of bomb-ruined British cities and Minister of Labor Bevin's plan for reorganizing the British building industry as providing a reservior of public works. For the United States, the NRPB proposed development of highways, rivers, hous-' ing, harbors, flood control, water power, control of pollution and similar projects. 5—Jobs for all. "We cannot afford to have idle people," Churchill declared, adding in reference to expansion of social security insurance that "the best way to insure against unemployment is to have no unemployment." Churchill counted on the reconstruction projects as taking up the slack in trade and industry, which he envisioned as expanding tremendous- y on a mass production basis. The NRPB similarly would have a federal vvork program to drain off the unemployed, guaranteeing every •eturning service man a job, and n addition wculd establish protective labor legislation and encourage industry to gre.ater employment. 6—Government and private enterprise. "There is a broadening field for state ownership and enterprise especially in relation to monopolies of all kind," Churchill said. "The modern stale will increasingly concern itself with the economic well-being of the state." He mentioned also the bolstering of British agirculture and food production as a possible cooperative- government undertaking. The NRPB favored joint private and overnment partnerships in such looming wartime industries as luminum, magnesium, shipbuild- ng and aircraft; federal parlicipa- on in transport, rural electrica-^ ion and water power; and plans for the encouragement of privat" nterprise. The NRPB would put into effect ome of its major objectives now. :hurchill, on the other hand, ex- iressed belief the proper time to nstilute the changes was the four- ear period following "the down- all of Hitler." Churchill did not take up the lemobilization of the armed ser- ices and wartime industry, high points of the NRPB report, but he oresaw "considerable opportuni- ies for reestablishing" British ex- jorts, a factor influencing home industry.
