President Jones said iiMhe introduction to thc report, '"rticre were many of them. iconic of them were able to solve, ps«her in part or in their entirety.

All amendments became effective January 25. Ervic O. Hicks. 209 Post Office Building,. North Little Rock, who represents the Wage and Hour and Contracts Division, U. S. Department of Labor, in Arkansas, has pointed out that the act permits the administration to issue special certificates authorising the employment of these lypcs of workers at sub-minimum wages. Such cer- [ficates, he cautioned, may be issued only to the extent necessary to jrevent curtailment of employment opportunities, and the procedure 'or obtaining thc certificates varies with respect to thc four types of cmplyces involved. "Applications for such certificates are obtainable from the regional office at im Commerce Street,, Dallas, Texas," the wage-hour official said. "Handicapped workers' certificates will be issued by the regional office, but other certificates will be issued only by the national office at Washington. "Handicapped workers' certificates are issued to employers upon presentation evidence that "Any measure of process which takes into account merely the limn- her and nature of problems confronted by an institution is incomplete. The real test of achievement is to be found in tlie opportunities which have been grasped, in the challenges which have ueon accepted." j Tlie entire program of the Uni-' ver.sity—the academic work, the re-1 search activities, the extension pro- | HADACOI, Is good lor all ages, gram, and the program of .student bringing five of nature's B vita- activities was enlarged and im- j proved during the year, he report- | ed. student housing v.^ greatly physical or mental deficiency or Usability, nnd is, therefore, unable •o earn the legal minimum wn^c. .Must Show Disability "Tile certificate will not be granted If thc evidence indicates that thc worker's inability to earn tlie minimum wage results not from such disability, but because of the fact that the basis of payment is arbitrarily too low. or the piece-rate wai;e scale by which he is paid so low Urn I even 11011- hanrltcapped workers hi the same occupation cannot earn thc prescribed minimum.
