Texas Guardsmen Asked To Assist DPS In Maintaining Holiday Traffic Safety AUSTIN-Gov. Preston Smith this week announced he was again catting on the Texas National Guard to assist the Department of Public Safety in maintaining traffic safety. He said Guradsmen will be employed in a 12-county area around Dallas and Fort Worth during the long July Fourth holiday weekend. Guardsmen were employed during the Memorial Day holiday weekend In the Austin and San Antonio areas. Gov. Smith emphasized that the Guard would be utilized in support of the DPS. "They will not be empowered to make arrests or perform other law enforcement duties," he said. "The terrible toll of holiday traffic continues to reach emergency proportions," Gov. Smith said. "Accordingly, we feel that it is essential that we try every appropriate measure within the resources of the state to cut this toll of tragedy." Gov. Smith said the use of Guardsmen during the Memorial Day weekend appeared to be helpful to the driving public of Texas. "The utilization of Guardsmen to assist the highway patrol in the heavily congested Dallas-Fort Worth area during the July Fourth holiday period will give us the opportunity to observe this traffic safety effort under a different set of circumstances,'' the Governor said. "Because the Guard belongs to the communities of Texas," said Major Gen. Ross Aycrs, adjutant general of Texas, "we feel this is an appropriate opportunity for the National Guard. One of the important missions of the Guard is to provide assistance to the citizens of the state during emergency situations," he said. "This is what we will be doing during the July Fourth weekend." He said Guardsmen performed many varied duties in the Austin and San Antonio areas during Memorial Day. "A Guardsman accompanied DPS patrolmen, thereby enabling the DPS to operate with just one of its personnel in each patrol car," Gen. Ayers said. "In addition, Guardsmen assisted stalled motorists by changing flat tires, starting autos with jumper cables and summoning wrechers," he said. Guardsmen also flew helicopter reconnaissance over heavily traveled routes, assisted in traffic control at the scene of several minor traffic incidents, provided, communications magnifying the DPS's equipment, and performed other duties related to traffic safety. Gov. Smith said the presence of the many National Guard vehicles, including helicopters, and the additional DPS vehicles that the Guard assistance made possible "apparently acted as a great psychological deterrent, preventing some reckless driving." He also said the use of the National Guard in Texas to assist in highway safety has attracted national attention. "Several requests for detailed information have been received from other slates which are interested In similar use of their state military forces," Gov. Smith said.

Hodgson Age No Bar to Employe Benefits M. J. of Utica, N.Y., says: I've worked for the same firm for eight years, but am still classified as a temporary employe. My boss says that, at age 54, I'm over the age limit for permanent em- ployes. This means I'm not eligible for full-time work or full fringe benefits. I don't even get retirement credit. Is this legal? Dear M.,): It sounds to me like a violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which prohibits job bias against persons aged 40 to 65. While the act p c r m i t s employers to observe terms of bona fide seniority systems or em- ploye-benefit programs, they cannot legally use these programs as excuses to evade the act's purposes. To ascertain if there is a violation of the law in your case, you may contact the federal wage-hour office in Utica. S. B. of Fowler, Ind., writes: My friend works in a department store and gels paid overtime whenever she works more than 40 hours n week. I work in a nursing home and get overtime after 48 hours a week. Why the difference? Dear S. B.: Nursing home employes, as well as those in rest homes and bowling alleys, are exempt from the federal overtime law requiring pay of time-and-one- half for more than 40 hours of work in a week. Instead, they are entitled to the premium rate after 48 hours per week. A. K. of Syracuse, N.Y., writes: There has been a lot of publicity about what's being done to help high school youth get jobs this summer, but I've heard very little about what's being done to help the younger kids use their time constructively. Do you know of anything? Dear A. K.: I agree that t h e r e never seems to be enough for this age group to do.
