MONDAY, TONE W, 19W BLYTHEVn-LE (ARK.) COUTUER NEWS PAGE NINE Vote on Expanded Social Security to Start Tuesday By KDWIN' B- HAAKINSON' W^IINGTON, June 19. (AP) — Senaj^Democratlc and Republican leaders teamed up today in an effort to speed passage of an expand- ied social security program. Voting ! on amendments Is set to start to: morrow afternoon. In .separate Interviews, Democratic Leader Lucas of Illinois and Senator Taft (R-Ohio), OOP policy leader, told a reporter they expect the social security measure to go through in about the form It came from the Senate Finance committee. Lucas Is pushing for one amendment that would increase the taxable wage base to $3,600 a year. II now Is $3.000 with employes am employers each contributing 1 1[2 per cent of wages up to this amount. Senator George (D-Ga), finance committee chairman and in charge ot the bill, was expected lo go along with the Lucas proposal If he and other Democrats would drop other amendments. Would Add 10,000,000 The Senate bill would add an estimated 10,000,000 persons to the 35,000,000 now covered by the old age and survivors Insurance program. Both it and a similar measure already passed by the House would sharply increase monthly benefit payments to aged persons, but the Senate committee dropped Ho\ise provisions for Increases in the related old age assistance program. These are the payments to aged persons and others who qualify on a needs basis rather than under the so-called Insurance. Both senators George and Milll- kln (It-Colo), former finance chairman, are battling for the senate policy of Increasing old age insurance coverage and cutting down on the public assistance program termed a relief or dole by some critics. Draft Next Since'reaching the agreement to vote Tuesday upon all amendment and then the bill, Senate debate has lagged on social security, am this has permitted the Senate t dispose of other matters. Thus it was passible to open de bate today on extension of tl peacetime draft act, now set to ex Ire June 24. Majority Leader Lucas hopes omplete action on the draft riieas- ire this week and send it back to he House which previously had >assed a different extension, The biggest ScnnU; battle on the draft is expected over a provisEor by Senator Russell <D-Ga) • that would allow any person enlisting or drafted Into the armed services to request service only in units madi up of persona of his own race. That runs contrary to Presidcn Truman's directive to end Negrc .segregation in the armed service but It has approval from a major ity of the Senate armed service committee. While the House Itself has mil business immediately scheduled, its Ways and Means Committee is a the point of an important tax vote. The committee Is considering tax boost of about $500,000,000 year for big corporations. The ide is to raise enough revenue else where to keep President Truman from vetoing proposed cuts in excise taxes on such things as movies, transportation, Jewelry, nntl Jane CoVfl, Former many other items. -Beginning:The Mature Parent?l y Here's the first of 10 articles that' approach child - parent relations from n unique perspective—that of problem children themselves. But tills scries Is written for the normal child and his normal parent by a distinguished authority on the prevention and control of Juvenile delinquency—the executive director of The Children's Village, rained training community for undisciplined nnd unadjusted hoys at Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

They held meetings at 9 o'clock in the morning. 2 o'clock In the afternoon, 8 o'clock at night —in schools, churches, private homes, over the back fence. All meetings were open. The big job was educational, and it was aimed at the May primary. What were the officers to be elected—what did they do? What were the salaries? How long were, they elected for? What did a congressman do, a circuit court Judge, the prosecuting attorney, the state legislators, the county clerk, recorder and commissioners the township trustees, justice of the peace, constable? Next, who were the candidates? Their names, their records? Here the American Guard decided to publish a "Voters' Manual." It is a M-page pamphlet. I'm told that when the "Guard took the copy for this manual to one Indianapolis print shop, U.A.W.-C.I.O. headquarters In Detroit called up the printer and told him if he took the job he would never get any more union business. He passed It up. But another union shop took it, and th< booklet came out with a union label. Some of the candidates refused if submit : biographical data. for the Voters' Manual. Of 40 candidates who failed to make such response after three Invitations, only six were elected. Stage Star, Is IH SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 19.

When we grant children the right lo their own Ideas, to speak their own minds and feelings, we should not forget to claim the same rights for ourselves. We live by our convictions of rlKht and wrong. And we can champion convictions fearlessly, without dreml of Inducing dark and mysterious ailments In our children. A child's emotional lioallh Isn't endangered by n just nnd indignant rebuke to something wrong. It can be seriously Impaired if he has to live with a parent made irritable and uncertain by suppressed hu initiation nnd resentment. When you find yourself constantly excusing your child's bad temper or impudence. It's time to take Inventory of your feelings, not of his. Don't Ire shocked when you discover what you rrally feel. If It Is indignation and n!;i;er. accept them. Your reaction Is proper and natural. If you accept It, you'll find your own way to convey your Indignant reaction as natural nnd proper to your child—and give him perhaps his first inkling of the human being behind the parent he has bullied and taken for granted. When we withhold correction from a child who needs It, our motive is less often love for him than fear of what he may do to hurt us in reprisal.

The result of all this awakening of public interest spoke for itself in the primary election last May. Fifty-six per cent of Madison County's eligible voters went to the polls. This was higher, than any of Indiana's 92 counties. In the 1944 primary the turn-out In Madison County was only 33 per cent of the voters. The Anderson American Guard is now preparing to do a similar educational job for the November election. One of the major efforts here will he to set up voting machines and dummy machines and •teach the voters -how;, to split a ticket. The idea is to get the voters lo vote for the best candidate, re- NEXT:. What, the American Guard stands for and its prospects for state and national organization. Hap Thomas "Cleans Up" It's about a year now since Hap Thomas bought tlt;it run-down gns station on River Koad. And because the last two owners had gone broke trying to make it pay, fnlks figured Hap was bound lo follow suit. They said so—out loud. But Hup went right ahead. When he painted llicbuildtng white (with red shutters nnd a red door) people called him crazy for wasting all his money on a lemon. He also put in a luwn nntl planted shrubs. You should have h*art! the wiscncrcs laugh then! B«t Hap didn't pay them any mi ml, because by this lime business was slnrUntj to roll in.
