Physical Handicaps No
Deterrent In Earning
Physical handicaps, once thought in-
table, have not proved to be
wage-earning deterrent to the na
tion’s World War II disabled veterans
who trained under Public Law 16, a
Veterans Administatipn survey dis
These veterans- —many of them am
putees,^' •blinded; or with weakened
hearts and other serious disabilities—
have more than doubled their prewar
incomes so that now they are earn
ing S4OO a year above the national
In fact, their earnings are above the
record set by able-bodied veterans who
trained under the World War II GI
Ninety-five out of every 100 of the
rehabilitated veterans are employed,
and nearly all are using skills they
learned while in training. In addition,
more than 99 per cent say they like
the kind of work they are doing.
The follow-up survey was made by |
VA to learn what happened to disabled j
veterans after they finished or stop
ped training and started making their
own way in life.
It covered a representative sampling
of disabled World War II veterans I
throughout the nation who had receiv-j
ed Public Law 16 training at some ■
time or another after the law went
into effect in 1943.
These veterans, before military ser
vice, earned an average of $32 a week, J
the study revealed. After military
service and Public Law 16 training' j
the weekly pay averaged $72 for those 1
who had reached the stage of com- ‘
plete rehabilitation. The weekly av- 1
cvngp for those who had discontinued
training before completing their cours
es was $66.
Some of the disabled veterans held
jobs after they were discharged and
before they began training under Pub
lic Law 16. Their average weekly pay
during that interim $39, the study
showed. The average male worker,
at that time, was earning about SSO
In the years that followed, the aver- i
age pay of the non-veteran went up 19’
per cent and the average able-bodied
veteran rose 50 per rent. Yet the av- 1
of the disabled veteran who took
jflfublic Law 16 shot up 75 per cent.

TEXT: “To some, religion is like
a bus. They ride it only when it is
going their way.” Anon.
The parson was preaching fervent
ly against all common sins, from mur
der to crap-shooting. A devout old
negress swayed and rocked in her pew,
murmering “Amen! Amen! Praises
be!” at each prohibition. Then the
person started on suff-dipping. The I
pious old negress sat bolt upright and
muttered to herself,
“Now he don’ stop preaoliin’ and:
took to meddlin’.”
Men or women without a sense of [
religion are rare. The forms used
and the gods served vary with peo
Happy new Khmer new year.
j In the South, late fall is the best
time to transplant shrubs or set new
fruit trees. The winter rains will set
tle the. soil around the roots and the
plants will be established before the
hot weather of next Spring comes.
along. Deciduous shrubs and trees—j
those that lose their leaves as soon as i
cold weather arrives—may be trans-;
planted as soon as they have lost most
of their leaves. They are usually dug
up with bare roots. The roots must
not be allowed to dry out while the
shrubs are waiting to be transplanted
It is not uncommon to see a per
son drive out into the country, dig up
dogwood trees in the woods, tie them
,to the running board of the car with
no protection for the roots, drive back
home again, and, with the roots thor
oughly dried out, transplant them in
the yard. Such a plant has very little,
chance to live.
Evergreens are usually transplanted
with a ball of earth around their roots
held in place by a piece of burlap. It
is not necessary to remove the burlap
in transplanting. After the shrub is
set in the hole simply untie or unpin
the burlap around the stem, throw
the flaps back and fill the hole with
earth. The burlap will soon rot away.
