s 1971 If it the ly needs I seldom ay readi- electric*, the holi- e, Miss eck s enou<^ll ou bake # Thursday, ,Novennrber 25, 1971 THE KINGS MOUNTAIN HERALD, KINGS MOUNTAIN, N. C. Paqe 9 Washington Report By Congressman JAMES 1. BROYHILL In a signi'iicant action hast week, the House passed legisla tion to establish a national cru sade to conquer cancer. in pre.-ous ncvv'iieiitrs, I have t'^e s'»rvi')us need lor a bill that would commit additional Federal resourses to finding a House of Representatives, in re- i ui e lor UiiS uioau c.r.sccioe. spense to strong public dcmnnd, passed a hill that would set a hi d- get of $1.5 billion over a three- year period for this purpose and would a"'f"ler'*te the ejdstingpro- gram under the National Insti tutes of Health. The bill would retain the present N 't onal Can- rer Ins' tntes within NTH, rather than establish it as a separate a- » ency, as had been provided in Die Sens'te version of this bill. Special notice w3S taken cf the need to coordinate the diverse re search programs that are curont- ly bt^lng undertaken in the cancer field. The National InsMtute of •’’e'lri h^.s a woridAvide reputa tion as a leader in biomedical re search, and leading scientist in » 'o ^'ancer f'e’d recommended during committee hearing on thi.s bill that the national cancer cru- siade he retained within NIII. The prccedi re of making grants to lo-cal concer research facilities would be expedited. It is estimated that this accelerated procedure would affect apnroi- ■mately 40 percent cf .all grant ap- plicalions and m'^Ve possoble their speedier approval. Cancer controls programs would receive a three-year budget of $90 million. These programs on the State locals levels would ena ble a comprehensive testing pro gram for early cancer detection, the training ''f additional cancer s^'ceia’ists. and the gathering of cancer t-. *-ottrT the medical soientifi'c community of the pro rcss being made in this vital area. I have aci'ively supported this iegisiat on both in the interstate and Foreign Commerce Commit tee, of which I am a member, and cn the House floor. Faced with the roali7ation that 20 percent of our pf)^uIation may one day be confionted wdth this disease, It is time that the Congress make a strong national commitment to pr '* ‘p inmeased funds toward finding a cure. The Senate has also passed a can.’er research bill which differs in severel respe ts f~nm the iM t se ver.elrn. These differences are pre.sently being w'^rked out an a oonferen^e committee, and it is m.y ho"? th''t final action can occur in the near future. VETFRAN^S BFNtFTT^ I ast week, the ITouso of Repre sentatives also rassed two bi'ls lf> improve several programs of the Veterans Administration w'hich assist veterans and their families. The first measure would provide a cost-of living increase in mnservice-ccnnc^ted disability pension rates payable to approxi mately 1.6 million veterans and their widows. It would also pre vent those receiving from loss or reduQlion in pension as a result of the increase in Social Security . benefits which became effective ' on January 1, 1871. The c'xA-of-1 living increase, computeu from i the last effective date of a pen sion increase, would average 6 j percent for veterans and widows, j The pension program is a long-1 standing Federal program which | provides monthly payments • to | needy veterans who are disabled and who have served in the armed forces dj^rlng a war-time period. In addition, it provides payments to widows and dependent child ren of such veterans after their deaths. All payments are based u- pon the fiinancial need of the vet eran and his family. I have al ways supported this worthwhile program which has assisted so many of our nation’s veterans. j The second bill to extend vet erans' benefits would provide a cost-of-living increase in pay ments to survivors of veterans who died as a result of service- incurred disabilities. Under this measure, approximately 176,090 widows would receive a 10 per cent increase and 43,000 children would receive a 5 percent i crease. The amounls of thes< increases are computed form th( last statjetory — Dec ember 1, 1969 for widow's and Ju ly 1, 1970 for children. In addit ion, an average increase .f 6 Va percent is provided for payments to dependent parents. Approxi ■ mately &A,f>00 dependent parents ‘ of deceased veterans now receive compensation under this program. I j iBoth bills now go to the Sen- ! ate for action and it is hoped that final passage will occur be- 'strongly that final action on fore the end of the year. I feel these measures, which are so im- poi'ant to the naetion’s veterans, I should not be delayed. Huffstickler Aboard “America" USS AiMDRICA. - Navy Petty Officer Second Class Charles M.
