Berkley Bedell Opposes Congressional Pay Raise Fort Dodge: Berkley Bedell, United States Congressmas- elect from the Sixth District, speaking Monday morning to he Life Underwriters Ass'n. called the proposed Congres- ional salary increase "ridicu- ous". Bedell stated he had sent elegrams to all present mem- lers of the Iowa Congressional lelegation urging them to work o defeat the proposal. Bedell went on to say, "At a ime when we ask all people to ighten their belts, the very dea of increasing congressional alaries is ridiculous. It is a poor xample for a Congress work- ig to halt the crippling effects of inflation on the average wage earner to even consider such a step at this /time. What we need from Washington is more tha n rhetoric, but action and strong leadership."
