National Employ the Physically
Handicapped Week is being observed
throughout the nation this week of:
October 4-10, for the ninth consecutive |
year. President Eisenhower and Gov-j
emors of all States, by proclamation,;
has set aside the week to emphasize
and highlight the abilities of the phy-|
sically handicapped when properly
trained and placed in suitable employ-]
The North Carolina Employment
Service, according to Mrs. Corie B.j
White, manager of the Edenton office, j
is engaged in a year-round program I
to promote increased employment of
physically handicapped workers.
Mrs. White pointed out that a phy
sical handicap should not be a barrier
to securing employment, but that in-,
dividuals should be considered for jobs
solely on the basis of , their training,!
skill, and ability.
“We need to use the talents of the
disabled,” Mrs. WTiite declared. “We;
need them as active, productive -citi
zens. The privilege of each person to
Bv Walter Chamblin, Jr.
A child is convinced he is treated
unfairly when punished for doing'
something he didn’t know was wrong.
Industry has every right to feel the
same way at times with respect to !
enforcement of the Anti-Trust Laws. .
It frequently is impossible to know
what is right and what is wrong.
Attempts are made to punish busi- ‘
ness for being big . . . Yet when an (
emergency arises which requires quirk
development of an atomic bomb it is
found that Big Business is necessary
to do part of the job.
This situation led one member of
Congress to comment that the Anti-
Trust Laws should he flexible, like an
accordian . . . so they could be con
tracted or expanded as desired.
Anyhow, despite more than fiO
years’ enforcement of the basic Anti-
Trust Statute, business men have not
as yet been provided with workable
guides for judging, with any degree
of certainty, the legality of normal
Administrative agencies and the!
courts have interpreted and applied
the statutes beyond the scope of the
original intent of Congress.
This has created inconsistencies and
uncertainties which impede business
planning for the future and. which;]
sometimes makes business reluctant to j
undertake expansion programs to pro-!
vide needed products and jobs.
The Eisenhower Administration is
trying to do something about this sit
uation . . . And. as a result.* Anti-i
Trust Law revision iss certain to be a ]
major subject for active considerations
by the next Congress.
Debate will be sparked by a report
of a special Anti-Trust Committee,
now working under the leadership of
Attorney-General Herbert Brownell, i
A lengthy report will be submitted |

| The principal objective of NEPH
[Week are to promote a better under
standing of the outstanding perform
ance of physically handicapped work
ers when properly placed and to in
form the handicapped themselves of
; rehabilitation and training services
I available to them and encourage them
to use these services.
| Mrs. White stated that jobs for the
• handicapped are a daily objective of
leach member of her staff during the
entire year. “The physically handicap
worker is at your service, ready, will
ing and able to do a job for you, Mr.
Employer,” stated Mrs, White, “Dis
ability does not destroy ability.
“All employers are uged to do their
(part in helping these people to earn
la livelihood. Call your local Employ
ment Service Office arid list your
; openings. All handicap applicants are
urged to register with the local office
: for assistance.”.

venes in January.
The Attorney-General’s Committee
is one of several named by the Eisen
hower Administration to review ma
jor legislative matters and to suggest
policies to guide the nation.
The Anti-Trust inquiry sprang, in
part, from repeated charges in Con
gress that monopoly is growing. While
charges have been numerous, little
legislation has been passed. An am
bitious Anti-Trust investigation was]
conducted early in the Now Deal Re- ]
gime by the Temporary National Eco
nomic Committee (TNEC), but vir>
tually no legislation resulted.

recently, but could agree upon few
I proposed changes in Anti-Trust Laws.
11 An apparent reason for lack of leg
islation is that investigation frequent
' ly dispels numerous myths about
growth of monopoly. Often when the
demise of small business is pi'oclaim

new businesses stages a marked in

talk about mergers, the net number is
Competition is generally recognized
as the basic regulating and directing
force in a free economy.
American Business believes in free
and open competition that is effective
in all lines of commerce and favors
the necessary measures to preserve
, its full vigor.
Business recognizes that federal An
ti-Trust legislation is necessary to 1
maintain effective competition.
It is hoped, therefore, by industry,:
that the current study will produce a
sound and realistic set of legal and
economic standards for Anti-Trust
