To the editor Dally N*wi Mlnixwt* WEDNESDAY, FES. II, »7« 7a Congress is told Women already do men's work In answer to Robert Redig on his suggestion to draft the fairer sex: Although we are not required to register for the draft, we are allowed to and you will find thousands on thousands of women in the armed forces, to which they had to volunteer, right? Where were you when they passed cut the blue ribbons to know they never received any credit for their dangerous missions, for their answer to their country's call, which dates back to World War I? I'd bet my bollom dollar that if there were such a thing as drafting of women, there would be so many volunteers from the fair sex that man would really have it made and could take to the rocking chair at 25. Our rebellion started in our own homes, when we found our household duties also included carrying our mate's share of the load--cutting grass, all the yard work, painting the house and yes, even roofing, which I myself have done and it the age of 53. Women have been picking up after, their mates for years--clothes strung from here to kingdom come. Since man chose to throw chivalry out the window, we the fairer sex, now toss our contracts of the household drudge in the same direction--hands down on diaper changing, wiping dirty noses, working like mad to heat an eight-hour deadline (that's father's quitting time) only to be told after final house inspection, "What did you do all day?" Why do we put up with it? The answer is simple, we love the lugs. Now Mr. Redig, since we have already run circles around your high standards, let us set a few down for you. Until you can pass pur standards for man, we're here to let you know we have just begun to fight. MRS. HARRY BAUER SR. President shouldn't have vetoed bill I didn't believe it would really happen. I didn't believe that after signing the $70 billion military bill that President NLxon would have the nerve to veto the $19 billion health- education-welfare appropriations bill, hut he did. This is not news, The records of 1953-60 show 120 vetoes during the Eisenhower-Nixon Administration. The priority of human aspirations and needs has suffered another bitter defeat in the inability of Congress to override that veto. The irony is that the President managed to convey to certain congressmen that he'll see to it that they get their "pork barrel" impacted area aid--something that was valid during World War II when it was first launched, but since has become a means of rewarding favored legislators. In the course of his pre-election campaign in 1968, Mr. . Nixon had not only made pledges of aid to private education, but just one month before the November 1968 election he said, "When we talk about cutting the expense of government ' the one area we can't shortchange is education." Apparently he has shortchanged his mind. ANTONE GUENTHER Theater criticized for failing to page Tonight I have had an experience that 1 don't ever want to repeat. A child not three years old got her finger cut. Being called upon to help, another neighbor and I took her to the hospital emergency room. First off the doctor that was called would not come to examine her because he had not seen her for sometime, and the mother was not present. She was at a movie. The theater was called a number of times and told that it was an emergency and that the mother be paged. But the theater would not cooperate. Even when the nurse from the hospital called she was given the run-around. After quite some time had passed the man from the theater called to ask what clothing the mother was wearing. But by that time someone had gone there to get her. I wonder if other parents who give their baby-sitter the theater number know that this condition exists. Perhaps, this wasn't a life and death matter, but I hate to ' think what would have happened if it had been. I hope that this child's finger grows back on the way it belongs, because that particular M.D. couldn't be bothered. Is this what happens when a child gets some poison, because the mother can't immediately be contacted? I'd like to thank the doctor who sewed it on. MRS. HAROLD ZIEMER Stockton, Minn.

Use of foreign banks biggest loophole By EDMOND LtBRETON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Use secret foreign bank accounts robably constitutes the biggest ngle loophole in the entire eld of tax evasion, according a veteran investigator of hid- en-funds operations involving verseas banks. "Switzerland is a lax haven, o doubt about that," Robert lorgenthau told the House Banking Commiltce Tuesday. "It isn'l only for United States itizens--South A m e r i c a n s ,rab leaders, all are using wiss banks for tax havens/ The former New York federa ttorney who was recently firec President NLxon criticizcc he administration for what hi ailed its withdrawal of suppor or a regulatory bill fo curb use jf secret foreign bank account: y criminals and tax cheats. Treasury officials have sail he administration favors thi (ill's goals but fears it is si jroad that il would do mor larm than good. The measure would requir record-keeping and reports b; jersons maintaining accounts n foreign banks protected b secrecy laws, and by courier who transport cash or securities ;o such foreign banks. The Treasury's doubts apparently center on requirements for U.S. banks to keep detailed records, including microfilms, of checks cleared. But Morgenthau said record- keeping provisions of the bill are essential to enforcement. He voiced concern over what he lews as success of some large omestic banks in undercutting upport for the legislation, In response lo Morgenthau's estimony, a Treasury Department spokesman summoned re- sorters and conceded that bank- :rs had met with Treasury offi- ·ials, but protested implications he bankers had forced Ihe dc- (artment to change Us position. Morgenthau said proliferation if branches and subsidiaries oi J.S. banks overseas is linked with (he rapid expansion of the narket in Eurodollars-dollars jeld abroad and traded there. "A portion ot this growth is undoubtedly the result of illega uses of foreign bank accounts,' he said.
