Phone service completes year WASHINGTON, H.C. - IV U.S. Consumer I'rmlurl Safely Commission's loll f r e e 110TUNK recently completed its firsl full year of operation having togged nearly calls from I'nnsumer.s diirinj.', (hat period. fulls in (he 110TUNK have ranged from requests for in- formiilinn about product safety lo reports of product-related acdik'iils and complaints .iboul l!ie safely of a consumer product. Large m e t r o p o l i t a n areas including Now York, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia and A t l a n t a have generated the largest volume of calls to the HOTLINE which operates nationwide on a 24-hour basis. Actions by Ihe commission to nan or recall a hazardous product have at limes been triggered by calls received over Hie HOTLINE. One such incident involved a consumer who called the HOTLINE lo report Ihe death of a Florida man who had been allegedly electrocuted by a trouble light he was using. A subsequent investigation by the commission revealed thai the trouble liglil had exposed electrical conductors which posed the threat of electrocution lo persons using the product. As a result, the commission took steps to have Ihe manufacturer. distributors and retailers recall Hie hazardous trouble light and ban il from further sale. Peak calling limes for the HOTLINE usually occur during heavy volume buying periods, such as holidays or whenever Hie commission issues a warning about a hazardous product. D u r i n g Ihe 1974 Christinas sviisnn. for example. Ihe IIO'lLINE received over 5,(KX1 calls in two days from consumers concerning a particular hraiul of Christmas tree lights which were being recalled. On occasion, the HOTLINE becomes Ihe target of non- product safely related calls. Like Ihe lime a consumer called the HOTLINE complaining thai Ihe hairspray his wife bad been using was making her schizophrenic. Later the wife called Ihe H O T L I N E lo apologize for Ihe actions of her husband who she snid had been undergoing psychiatric care. The HOTLINE has been described as an "instant two- way communication system" between the commission and the consumer. Rut this is true only if consumers make use of il. To report a product-related injury, product hazard or lo request information on product safely, consumers may call Ihe loll free HOTLINE number .from anywhere in the continental U.S. (BOdi Migrant housing changes blasted MBS.

A safe deposit box. available al your local bank, can lie rented for a few dollars a year. II provides excellent storage as il is fireproof and locked. 0'. if you prefer to keep important papers in your home, an inexpensive melal box can be used. However, make sure il has a lock and is fireproof, says Pace. W h a t we the inipoi'tanl papers lo be be concerned a h o u l ? A l l personal records, such as birth and marriage cerlificalcs. citizenship records, death, divorce, m i l i t a r y discharge, change of name, or adoption papers, are bul a few. In addition, contracts and legal documenls, insurance policies or their numbers, mortgages, car lilies, a copy of your will, and an i n v e n t o r y of your household furnishings should be included, according to Pace. Your home file should also contain canceled checks, current bills, lax records, real eslale titles and deeds, a list of your credit cards and their numbers and a copy of your insurance policies, says p'aee. Filing these valuable papers may seem like a dreadful chore, liul unforeseen events have placed many people in the position where they wish Ihey had taken care of Ibis situation earlier, explains Pace. Begin your New Year by taking inventory of your insurance, savings, personal and olher important papers. Then put (hem in a safe place. And throughout the year, as new equally important papers are acquired, file them promptly. Pace adds.

Everyone is inviled, FT. LAUDKKDALE, Fla. The president of the National Education Association recently branded proposed federal housing standards tor migrant workers "totally irresponsible, unsatisfactory . . . a retreat from h u m a n decency." James A. Harris, in opposing Ihe standards for employe- related housing proposed by the D e p a r t m e n t of Labor's Occupational Safely and Health Administration, declared: "The proposed new standards would not only ball the snail pace progress in the improvement of migrant housing; Ihey would, in fact, reverse the trend, setting us back 20 lo 41] Deadline limits funds WASHINGTON ( U P I ) Three presidential contenders raised more than Si million each in campaign funds last year and beat the Jan. 1 deadline limiting i n d i v i d u a l contributions lo $1,COO. Democratic Sens. Henry M. Jackson of Washington State and Lloyd Bentsen of Texas, along willi Alabama Gov. George Wallace, were in the $1 million-plus class of presidential hopefuls filing year-end reports with the Federal Elections Office. Jackson and Benlsen said (he bulk of their contributions for the final three months of 1974 were in individual donations of between S2.000 and 53,000 each. The Campaign Reform Acl passed by Congress last year established a $1,000 limit on individual contributions lo presidential c a m p a i g n s . It became law last October bul did not lake effect until New Year's Day. Jackson, expccled to announce his candidacy on lelcvision Thursday, collected more than $1.1 million in contributions last year and spent more than $206,000. He listed cash on hand al more than S932,000. He said he collected most of his money in the final months in amounts of between $15,000 and $3,000. Wallace reported lolal contributions tor the past year of more than $1.7 million, and made expenditures -mostly in his reelection campaign --of almost $l.5million. He reported cash on hand of $198,000. Bcntscn raised a little more than $1 million in Ihe 18 months. Hespent more than $383,000. He reported cash on hand at $052,000. As with Jackson, the bulk of Ihe $629,000 Bentsen raised in the final four months of the year was in increments of $2,000 or more. Of the 130 individual contributions Benlsen listed over the $1,000 limit, 44 were for $2,000 each and C9 were for $3,000 each. Gov. Jimmy Carter of Georgia, who recently declared his candidacy, reported he raised more than $46,000 between Nov. 22 and Dec. 31 and spent more than $30,000, with cash on hand of $16,000 and debts totaling $26.000. years lolbe days of Ihe kerosene lantern." Harris said, for example, thai the proposed change of the term "occupant" lo "employe" in determining square feet of floor space fails to lake inlo accounl the migrant's children and may result in further overcrowding. Among olher proposed changes that are "equally incredible and offensive," Harris added, are (he lack of limitation on the number of beds or occupants of any dwelling, a provision that no windows arc required as long as some vent i l a t i o n is provided, and a proviso that some lighting -- b u l not .necessarily electricity -- be ;ivail;ible. p -'·-· ' '· : ;· The head of ; the nearly 1.6 million-member NEA, in his statement at a Labor Department p u b l i c hearing here, emphasized t h a t migrant housing and Ihe education of m i g r a n t children are inseparably linked. "There is a vicious cycle which includes the deprivations nl poverty, deplorable housing, poor health w i t h an exceptionally high incidence of disease, all of which directly affect (he migrant child in school," Harris said. "It is nol surprising that over GO per cenl of the migrant students never complete high school." He pointed oul lliat "it is almost a miracle for a migrant child lo overcome these problems and break out of the cycle of migrancy and poverty." The former Iowa schoolteacher stressed t h a t , even with Ihe present standards, "an overwhelming number of m i g r a n t workers live in d i l a p i d a t e d , s u b s t a n d a r d housing." Investigations by federal and i n d e p e n d e n t agencies, he poinled out. have revealed many cases where the square footage of housing for migrant workers and families was less lhan thai recommended by the American Prison Association for minimum cell space. Walcr was oflen inaccessible or contaminated, the studies showed, and toilet facilities were provided in a ratio of one per 50 lo 70 people. "For the federal government lo promulgate regulations which f u r t h e r deteriorate' l i v i n g conditions In ensure failure (for migrant children in school) is inlolerable," Harris declared. He called attention lo NEA's current Project Educational Neglect, a program lo focus the nation's allcnlion on intolerable educational conditions and the problems thai create and per- pelualc Hi esc conditions. He also noted that a recently established Migrant Project is part of NKA's on-going program. New policy COLLEGE STATION. Tex.
