WEDNESDAV, JANUARY 27, 1943 OFFER PLAN TO AID PENSIONERS 3 Senators Propose Liberalized Benefits* DBS MOINES, W)--A triumvirate composed of Senators John P. Berg (R.-Cedar Falls), George Faul (R.-Des Moines) and E. K Behman (R. - Ottumwa) jointlj MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE series oj proposals sponsored a _ to liberalize old age assistance benefits in lows. * ¥ * The Cedar Falls senator also proposed selling aside $75,000 from the state general fund for construction on tlie state house grounds of an official residence for future Iowa governors. V ·¥ * Senators Berg, Faul and Bekman approached the old age problem from tlu-ee sides: First, they proposed to memorialize congress to make it possible lo pay benefits to persons who may be able to earn as much as S240 a year at odd jobs. A present such persons cannot receive benefits. Second, removal of the presen S25 per month ceiling on pension benefits was asked. They contended this would enable the stati board of social welfare to hand cases more nearly according to Individual merit. Their third proposal would enable an old age assistance recipient to keep up to $300 for the individual of $430 for a couple from proceeds of real estate owned anc disposed of. A similar exemption is now allowed for money and personal properly, but none for the recipient who owns his home. * * * Ppinlinp out that Iowa has no executive mansion, as most states have, Senator Here proposed to invest (he $75,000 in securities which could be converted info cash at the end of the war with the lifting of the present ban on construction. Under the plan, interest from the investment would go into the general fund. * * * Senators John E. Hattery (R.- Nevada and K. A.

Gen. UwU B. Bersber. »*teoUve service chief, indlcatinc the supply of childless married men would last only* about 10 months if the armed forces went above 10,000,00*. * * * Hershey's statement--the last he has made publicly on the subject--was that drafting of men with children would begin generally around next Oct. 1 if 10,000,000 or more were to be called up without drafting 18 and 19 year olds. Since he spoke, the minimum draft age has been lowered to include those age brackets, but the gain thus made in the num- ber of draft eligibles has been offset by deferment of all men 38 or older, apparently reinstating his forecast. Another development has been the shifting in draft deferment emphasis from dependency to occupation as the manpower shortage grows and the number of persons eligible for occupational deferment mounts with the expansion of war industry * V- * Drattlnc of childless married men h»s been under way generally for a month or more now, and the draft director for the District of Columbia says the calllnr up of men with children mltht beiin In Washington anytime after next July 1. * * * War Manpower Commissioner Paul V. McNutt, now overlord of selective service, has said he did not know when men with children would be called and declined to make an estimate on the ground it would be uncertain and would arouse anxiet3. The 10,420,000 figure, which includes officers, was announced by Senator Chandler (D., Ky.) following testimony before the senate military affairs committee by army and navy personnel chiefs.
