6- THE BAYTOWN SUN, TUESDAY, JUNE 3. 1952 fgff \#f) ^0^ M » ^mr ^ ^w •• ^a»- i — — — — m Nothing To Lose But Your Freedom 5 By JAY BREEN * NEW YORK, June 2 ftB — The -nation's first bachelor convention 'has been announced by Jack -Blatt of the Bachelor's Society of America, who said the four-day .meeting would be given over to 'conferences on such topics as "how do bachelors get that way?" and V'can anything be done about it?" i Trains, buses and planes were 'scheduled to bring thousands of the country's unattached males to Bethlehem, N.H., where the cele- -brants were to march in a parade through the resort town and then •settle down to plan social and eco- fnomic aids for unmarried men. « "All around us we find dis- > crimination," Blatt said. "The , bachelor sets a reprimand every time he files an income tax return, dines in a nightclub or 1 rents a hotel room. There are ..hundreds of situations where we are taken advantage of, merely because we're not married or in " love." Blatt planned to deliver a key life will be an inspiration to our members." Just in case it isn't, Blatt said the last day of the bachelor conclave, July 6, will be highlighted by a gigantic picnic in Bethlehem's Sesquicentennial Park, followed by a moonlight dance held simultarxj eously at 30 nearby resort hotels and sponsored by the town's fair sex. "No bachelor need think that this convention represents an effort to trap him Into marriage," Blatt said, "but at least one forum and two major speeches will discuss whether bachelorhood is not eventually self-defeating." Eligibility requirements were comparatively loose. Blatt said his society took the dictionary definition for a bachelor—an unmarried man—thus qualifying widowers, men who'd never married and those who had and changed their minds.

" He said Bethlehem, N.H., was "' selected as the appropriate spot "* for the first convention, early "' next month, because" early New " England folklore has it that there - were more unmarried men in New Hampshire than any other * colony in the country's early T' history. <• "In our nation today there are - 'over 19 million single men with iproblems of loneliness as serious ^as those which beset our early settlers," he said.

GLORIA DALE, 30, singer who was withV Howard Hildebrandt, 27, when he was arrested In New York in the $100,000 robbery In Ex-Congressrnen sions WASHINGTON, June 2 OB— Sixty-seven -former congressmen who were either- defeated for reelection or retired, are drawing a total of $222,964 a year from the voluntary congressional pension system. The benefits average $3,323 annually. They range from a low of S793 to $7,375, depending on the congressman's length of service and the amount he paid into the pension fund. The pension system was set up as part of the Congressional Reorganization Act of 1946. Retired senators and representatives may start to collect at the age of 62 if they have had six years service, not necessarily continuous. To belong to the pension system a congressman contributes six per cent of his basic salary annually. The pension is figured at 2 1-2 per cent of a congressman's basic salary multiplied by the number of years of congressional service. Thus far no congressman is drawing the maximum pension of 59,375 which may go to legislators with 30 years service. At least three retiring legislators will be eligible for the maximum next year if they have made the necessary retroactive payments to cover their service before 1946. once « year Event * & oser ANNE FRANCIS, youthful film starlet who won fame in New York tele-- vision, poses with her new husband, -Bamlet L.
