PAGE BLI IMEVfLLS (AfcK.) OOflJRIER Congressman Urges Cut, Not Pay Raise For U.S. Lawmakers WASHINGTON. Sept, VI. (AP) — A congressman with no pocket* In hte pant* yesterday advocated a salary cut for the nation's lawmakers, rather than a raise. It's not that Rep. Clare E. Hoffman (R-Mlch) couldn't find » place for extra money — he does have pocket* in his coat. He argued, however, that the senators and representatives would b« doing the country a real service if (hey themselves took the first step toward getting back to what he called a "rational" price level. Members of both houses now get $12,500 a year plus a $2,500 Ux-fre* expense allowance. With Inflation, there has been considerable moaning in the cloakrooms that the $15,000 total isn't enough. Increase Was Asked Rep. John W. McCormack of Massachusetts, the Democratic leader, has come out openly for an increase of S25.000 a year. But Hoffman advocated: "Cut us to 510.000." After bleeding the first economy dollars personally, he counseled, >,he congressmen should start whacking away at other expenses of government. Including the pay of its civil service employes. The goal, he told a reporter, should be to get the cost of living wttMfi rtaeh of every tn dividual BailntH "Won't Do" "Thi£ busfnew of raising wagee and then raising them again won't do it," he said. Hoffman said he U drawing twice u many dollars now for lawmik- Ing as h« did when he came here !n 1935, and 1« worse off financially. "And," he added, "I don't gamble smoke, drink, or patron!?^ the race tracks, and have virtually no social activities. I try to live the old fash toned way." The slender, sharp featured lawyer from Allegan, Mich. Is confident there would be plenty of competition for seats In the House and Senate even at cut rates. "Nobody Drafted Me" "Nobody drafted me." he recalled. Further, he doesn't think that $25.000 a year would hire better lawmakers. "All sorts of motives bring people here." he said. "I think the profit motive is the very least of all." Oh. yes, about Hoffman's pocket- less pants. He's worn them many years, ancl explains: "Pants pocket, 1 ! nre kind of like the new deal—a catch-all for all sort* of damn fool Junk." ST. LOUI8. Sept. 27.
