Rosenthal, of the Aus-' tin Clinic is attending a five dayj Here's Baldy Talkin Spent the day in Minneapolis listening to a League of Minnesota municipalities committee discuss pensions and pension plans for municipal employes. It is amazing to me to tind the problems we have here in Austin are identical with just about every city in the state only modified in exact proportion to population. I know that any proposal to change the existing laws in regard to pensions meets tremendous resistance on the part of the affected employes. However when some pension plans are going to need an assessment equal to about 30°c, of salaries paid, then I am afraid the taxpayers are going to call a halt and the pendulum will swing in the other direction and pensions may be cut oo far. If I were a city employe eligible to receive a pension, I believe I would want a plan that could be depended upon to furnish me with security in my golden years. I don't think I would want a plan that promises pensions that cannot be lived up to. After all what good is insurance if the insurance company can't pay its bills? I think we are better off to formulate a pension system we will be able to live with and that is on an economically strong basis C. R. H.
