W. Robertson. Humanity and Profit One state government activity which it is hoped will operate unchecked, is work in the field for vocational rehabilitation of the handicapped. The restoring of the handicapped to useful work, through training, is a highly humane activity. Even though such benefits are great, they do not stop there. For besides the personal satisfaction of the handicapped in rejoining society as a working member, the program returns dividends to the state. Approximately 1,000 handicapped persons are rehabilitated annually. The state department does not consider'a person as rehabilitated until, after training, he or she is able to obtain a job. A high percentage of the handicapped receive aid from government welfare. Their training in a vskfll which makes it possible for them to obtain employment, removes them from the welfare rolls and makes them taxpayers. The financial benefit is obvious in their becoming a paying, instead of a receiving, member of society. A study has shown there are at least 22,000 unemoloyed handicapped looking for work. The state department's work is obviously far from being exhausted. It is hoped the legislature will continue to give this department the finances they need so the good work can be continued. An Old Issue Is Back The issue of whether a Constitutional Convention should be called to re-write Minnesota's Constitution has again cropped up with introduction in the legislature of a bill to put it to a vote in I960. Obviously, the question to be asked is whether there is anything really wrong with the Constitution we now have? It has been claimed that our Constitution is too old. But the United States Constitution is also old. The thing that counts in a constitution is basic principles. We doubt there are principles in our present Constitution which have caused Minne- sdta harm over the many years. Another complaint is that our Constitution is too long. As state Constitutions go, Minnesota's, with 15,465 words, isn't. DOUBLE STANDARD txmisiana has 201,423, California 72,000, Texas 39,000, Oklahoma 35,000, Missouri 30,000, Massachusetts 28,500. It is true, as is claimed, that some of our Constitution's provisions are obsolete. But that is true of every Constitution. Changing times will always make some provisions out of date. The important thing is basic principles.

HERALD Monday, Jan. 19, 1959 ways be amended. Apparently, it isn't difficult to amend our Constitution to keep it in step with the times, since there has been more than 80 amendments. Nor is the revising of a Constitution through a convention, an inexpensive procedure. Missouri, which redrafted its constitution in 1945, not only spent a large sum on the project but then had to hire 12 lawyers who worked two years analyzing 15,000 statute provisions, after which it was necessary to introduce 550 bills at the next session of the legislature to make the Constitution workable. In the bill being proposed, it is not enough for the Minnesota legislators to adopt it only with the thought that they will pass it along to the voters for decision. For the legislators are in the best position of knowing if there is really any provision which is damaging to the state, and can not be changed through an amendment. They are competent to judge from their own experience in legislation. A legislator who votes for the bill merely to pass it on to an election for a vote, will be shirking his duty. His vote should be interpreted as carrying with it a positive opinion and recommendation that he believes the present Constitution is harmful and can't be adequately corrected through amendments. For if he is not in a position to .i . whether our Constitution is or is not adequate for present-day legislation, who on earth is? Opinions of Others TRENDS IN GOP Everywhere one looks the Republican party seems to be in turmoil these days. House Republicans in Washington, D. C., rose up and overthrew their long-time leader, Joe Martin. Across the Capitol, Republican progressives tried— and failed —to oust the GOP Old Guard from the Republican U. S. Senate saddle. Here in Minnesota Republicans staged a fair-sized battle over selection of a new party chairman, and the party's liberal segment apparently went down to defeat for the time being. This intra-party conflict and turmoil has long been standard fare within Democratic ranks, but Republicans have traditionally been more reluct- and to bring their splits and divisions out into the open. The recent contests pitting Republican vs. Republican are a good sign, we believe, for they represent an increased and strengthened determination on the part of many Republicans to recast their party's image in the voters' eyes, to bring up to date its approach to many modern problems, in a word to make Republicans more attractive to the American public at the polls and to make the GOP a stronger competitor of the Democrats than it has been in recent elections. Roscoe Drummond, a Washington columnist, expressed it pretty well a day or two ago when he wrote: "A 20th century conservative is one who is determined to deal with the nation's problems on conservative principles, but not to neglect them. Too often in the past it has been the conservative who has used his conservatism as an excuse for not doing what is needed. That's not conservatism, that's neglect." If America's two-party system is to remain strong and healthy, the Republicans, like their Conservative party counterparts in Great Britain, must keep on top of the country's changing problems. They must not let themselves be relegated to a permanent minority. With President Eisenhower providing little "modern Republican" leadership these days, it's important that Republican progressives push to the fore. Intra-party conflict will not hurt party chances at the polls, as the Democrats have repeatedly proved. — RED WING REPUBLICAN EAGLE Soviet Union Expects Much From Us but Doesn't Give By DAVID LAWRENCE ,or the beginnings of a "peaceful WASHINGTON - If anything were needed to expose the hum- Vug and hypocricy of the Mos- co-existence" when the rules that apply inside the Soviet Union are so hostile to the concept of free cow government, it has been fully I interchange between peoples? demonstrated in the paradox of President Eisenhower told newsmen this week that he is in favor of more and more visits by prominent persons from the Soviet Union.

S. Public Health Service. They have agreed to launch a two-pronged attack to find means of reducing auto exhausts. While the auto is by no means the only offender in air pollution, it Is considered an important factor in large cities. SAFETY OFFICIALS are convinced a good safety slogan can help a good safety program. So, just for fun, they have compiled and translated a list of safety slogans used successfully around the world to show that safety is sold everywhere. China: "Let your head guide your feet." England: "More patient pedestrians mean less pedestrian patients," France: "Caution prevents suffering." German: "Caution is not. cowardly, and carelessness is not courage." Hungary: "Go slower — get farther." Israel: "Life and death are on the roads." Mexico: "An automobile is always as drunk as the man driving it." Russia: "Better arrive late— than never." South Africa: "A cat has nine lives — a pedestrian only one." Sweden: "Watch where you step, or you'll step into trouble." United States: "Let safety share your ride. Make every drive a safety drive!" NOTHING In permanent as the world is as a governmental temporary building, temporary relief or temporary taxes. And this can be said also of the present 10 per cent federal tax on transportation. It was imposed at the beginning of World War II and was designed to discourage non-essential travel by civilians using common carriers — the airlines, railroads and buses. Today, 13 years after the end of the war, the .lax is still with us, and presumably is still working to discourage travel on the nation's public transportaton systems. CUBA'S CASTRO, who is beginning to act a little like the dictator he replaced, is asking that the United States return to Cuba the henchmen of Baptista who fled to this country during the revolution. His possible intention is to put them before a firing squad. The Constitution of the United States does not guarantee the "right of asylum" to political refugees from a foreign land. Yet the If you were paid while absent j on account of sickness, you canj subtract so much of this pay as I does not exceed $100 per week after you have been sick for one full week. However, If your Illness is such thai you are hospitalized at least one day during your Illness, you can subtract up to $100 per week of this pay from the first day of absence. To claim an exclusion for sick pay, two things must be done: First, the excludable amount must be computed; and second, a statement showing the computation must be attached to the return. Your employer may furnish you with a computation and statement which you can use to support the exclusion. Most employers, however, will not supply the statements because to do so requires a good deal of extra record keeping. Therefore many employes will be required to make the con- putation and attach a statement themselves. The best way to do this is to get a copy of Form 2440 from any Internal Revenue office and fill It out. It will provide all nut tttt *~.M.!H* 0,1, TMMt fcjMiUM-tMnMl *«*»• *Mn mrartjit n tmnt BCUMI * MI tn fat laMiiH rw —.,; ,, L . , ..-.-.. --. .

For example, suppose you were absent from work on account of sickness for 10 consecutive calendar days and your employer paid you $140 for the 10 calendar days, as he had agreed to do so as one of your working benefits. If you were not hospitalized during the absence, then you can subtract pay for only the last three days, or $42. However, if you were hospitalized for one or more days during the sickness, you could subtract the entire 140, since the rate of pay is less than 100 per week. The Form 2440 printed with this article has been filled in to illustrate the latter situation. Remember that the sick pay exclusion is in addition to several other types of exclusions connected with health and accident plans. For example, payments under workmen's compensation laws are exempt from tax and, hence, are excluded from income. The same is true for payments under any accident or health insurance paid for by the employe. Reuther's Union to Keep Political Forces Flexible By VICTOR R1ESEL Walter Reuther and the rest of the Auto Workers' high command are gearing their union so they can shift easily into independent political action — that is, political acton independent of even the Democratic Party, the merged labor movement, or any other force, for that matter. Operating on the theory that eternal vigilance is the price of political victory, the Auto Union chiefs will operate during all four seasons through a network of new Citizenship Councils. These will be organized In every state where Reuther has followers. They'll be patterned after three such councils which have been in action for some time in Chicago, Buffalo and Philadelphia. Directed out of the national Solidarity House headquarters in Detroit, the councils will have a national staff of some 48 political and educational directors. 10 Cents a Member They'll be financed out of the 10 cents a member paid into a Citizenship Fund each month. With the latest official membership figures at 1,026,000, this gives Reuther's political education drive about $1,230,000 a year. Half goes to the local unions and half to the national office. -•This will be just enough to put the new political sputnik into orbit. The Citizenship Councils, judging from the current operations In the three big cities, won't need heavy funds. Each Council will band together the local UAW unions in Its city or region. In turn, it will have dele- 'YOUR MONEY'S WORTH' What Inflation Will Be By SYLVIA PORTER This is what inflation is, Mr. and Mrs. America — this is what you actually have lived through if you are over 20 years old today. In 1939 a quart of milk cost under 12 cents; in 1949 a quart cost 22 cents; in 1959 the price in my neighborhood store is 29 cents, In 1939 a loaf of sliced white bread cost under 8 cents; in 1949 a loaf cost under 14 cents; a loaf now costs over 19 cents. In 1939 a leg of lamb, per pound, cost around 28 cents; in 1949 lamb per pound was over 71 cents; it's now over 77 cents. In 1939 a pound of coffee cost a bit over 22 cents; in 1949 it was over 55 cents; the average per pound now is in the 70-cent range. In 1939 a New York subway fare was a nickel; in 1949 it was a dime; in 1959 it's 15 cents. And in the same period bus fares in my hometown have gone from a nickel to seven cents to 15 cents. Car, Gas, Steel In 1939 the lowest-priced, five- passenger, four-door car in the Buick line was $984; in 1949 1959 it's $2,545. In 1939 the wholesale price of a gallon of gas, excluding taxes, " n1; " But only when you compare the price of milk and bread, of bus fares and meat, does the 'ale come through. Only as I dug through the newspapers of 1939 and 1949 and studied the ads did I truly understand what I'm saying when I write that the dollar which bought 100 cents of goods and services in 1939 buys less than 48 cents worth in 1959. Becanse we lived through this inflation between 1939 and 194& and 1959 does it follow, though that we will repeat the experience between 1959 and 1969 and 1979? IT DOES NOT FOLLOW! NOT AT ALL! Just recall the background and you'll see what I mean. In 1939 we were coming out of a decade of chaotic depression During all those years of stagnation in the '30s we built only a picayune number of houses, plants factories, machines. We had nol only been stopped in our economic tracks by the great depression of the '30s;' we had been pushed into a massive retreat. Strained to Utmost On top of this stagnation came World War II. Suddenly our woefully underbuilt economy was ista who fled to this country are in no danger of being returned to Cuba.

But some of the refugees of recent years, particularly from La- ed steel at of wholesale was in 1949 it was $90; in 1959 it's $146.

The upsurge in prices and wages was simply a normal response to conditions then existing. Down-to-Earth Now re-read those little down- to-earth statistics. Notice how the pace of the price increase in most cases has slowed? That's only logical, too. We have more than caught up with the un- derbuilding of the depression years and the scarcities of war. Barring another global war — in which case no projection would have any meaning — there is no basis for price rises in the next two decades to match what we've seen in the past two. A gently rising price level is a reasonable expectation. A search for solutions to inflation in peacetime is far overdue. But much of the outcry about violent inflation today is belated, for we've seen the worst. (Distributed 1959 by The Hall Syndicate, Inc.) o,r^ r ° f u'° r 5 n W* lecture WouW be our heads.

This process is complete everywhere except in New Jersey. Virtually everywhere the top spots are held by former AFL state and city central council chiefs. Their politics are not likely to stir comradely feelings in Reuther.
