PAOTTWO BI-TOHSYTLLB (AR*.)T OOCWIB TCES1UY, NOVflMRKR 8, 1958 Under New Reserve Act; Six- Month Military Trainees Get Full Rights to Jobs They Leave By D01-OI.AS LARSKN NBA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Uncle Sam has made a major move to encourage young men to ge! !n on the new six-month military training program which excuses them from the 'iLdar^'Lab^—-?. Mitchell has now interpreted the new Reserve Force Act to give these six-month trainees maximum rights to their old jobs. His announcement is of importance to every young man of 18 or younger who is faced with deciding whether to get in on the new program. It is important to every firm to the B. S. employing young men. There has been som- confusion on interpretations of re-employment rights under the basic military training law. But Secretary Mitchell removes all doubt on a man's right to his old job under the new reserve act. When a man completes his six months of service his former employer is obliged to give him back the job he had or one of "like seniority, status and pay." according to Mitchell. If an employer fails to do this the man can take his claims to a federal court. Furthermore, the man is protected against being fired for six months after he returns to that job. That is, except for a specific cause such as drinking, or stealing from the boss, Mitchell explains. When a man completes his training he is required by law to attend drill 48 evenings and spend two weeks in camp each year. This obligation continues for seven and one-half years.

He must apply for it within six months sfter he has finished his regular training. And he mu=t apply for reinstatement within 30 days after he completes his two weeks in camp each year. There is a penalty for a man who falls to keep up his active status in the reserves when he completes his six months of training. The Army can call him back to active duty for 45 days. But even Jn this sitviation the law protects the man's job. When he finishes his 45 days of penalty duty, his former employer is obliged to give him his Job back on the same basis as though he was returning from normal active duty. The re-employment rights of men who ars drafted are for longer peril can't be fired without cause for one year. In case a six-month trainee is in the hospital when his time of service is completed, his re-employment rights begin when he is discharged from the hospital. j A subject under study by the lawyers of the Department of Labor is the re-employment rights of members of the National Guard who take the six months training program. Labor Department attorneys have held that under the basic draft act "guardsmen have only those re-employment rights which are provided by "the individual states. An unofficial interpretation by them holds that the same rule applies under the new reserve act. But there has been no case requiring a specific decision on the matter so far. And there is pressure b^ the National Guard to have to sue in federal court for their job 1 rights, after they have completed '• the six months training. WARNING ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT.

It's part of a program started recently by Mrs. Lucy York, physical therapist at the VV. J. Bryan School of Physically Handicapped Children Mrs York says the do-si-doing and 'sash.uine' have produced amazinx results tor ihe brace- burdened youngsters ranging in age from 5 to 11 Kirst Time The teacher beiievcs it is the first time square dancing has been worked into a physical therapy program for cripplrd children. "The children know the other U.S. Tax Court Rules in Favor Of Jack Benny HOLLYWOOD ,?—The U. S. Tax Court in Washington has ruled in favor of comedian Jack Benny in a seven-year-old tax ca.^e involving • about a million dollars. i The case involved a question of: whether Benny should pay personal! income taxes or capital gains tax j on the 1943 sale of Amusement En-' terprises, Inc. The government contended the comedian should pay personal income taxes at a rate of about 75 per cent. Benny said his share of r,he deal comprised a long term capital gain, taxable at 25 per cent only. schools do square dancing and now they feel they are keeping up with them." Mrs, York explained. She said one polio victim who has been dependent on crutches tosses them to one side and whirls with the best of the.m. A mrl. also crippled by polio, had a sppr-rh Impediment attributed to an emotional problem. After one week of dancing, the speech difficulty was "practically eliminated " "She relaxed and she lelt she was accepted as one of the square dancf group." Mrs. York added. "We had lots of spills in the beginning but the parents and children knew this would happen! Now they are gaining strength and there are few falls." Mrs. York soys square dance routines do more to strengthen muscles and improve coordination than traditional exercises. Mrs. York said when the children ivem through other routine exercises such as riding a bicycle and walking between parallel bars she heard the usual complaint "I'm tired, I don't want to do that today." "Now it's a dancing party." the teacher said happily.
