Washington Many members
of Congress are more deeply
concerned over proposals to per
manently federalize the state un
employment compensation sys
tem ttfen they are over the cur
rent legislation to extend un
employment compensation pay
One major reason, of course,
is the fact that there appar
ently is no chance to stop the
temporary program—as it seems
assured of early congressional
Opponents of the permanent
federalization of the state pro
gram believe they have a
for victory—especially if
substantial grassroots sentiment
for state’s rights is communi
cated to Capitol Hill.
President Kennedy has been
one of the leading advocates of
federalization—which means that
•the federal government would
take control and the states would
lose their . rights to determine
their own system. Kennedy
proposals are being drawn up
for submission to Congress.
During the House debate on
the temporary extension —which
was approved by a 392 to 30
vote—considerable alarm was
expressed over the possibility
of the federal government tak
ing over control of the state
For example, Rep. Curtis (R_-
Mo.) asserted that “there are
minds at work in this country
that are trying to undermine”
the state unemployment insur
ance system and “create a wel
fare program out of it and put
if up here at the federal level
run by a bureaucracy in Wash
ington, D. C.”
“Their interest,” he added, “is
not the welfare of their fellow
man. Their interest is their ul
timate objective of federalizing
Rep. Utt (R-Cal.), referring to
the temporary program, contend
ed that “it is a system which
wjll be imposed upon the 50
states in this union when there
ar.f only ten states that are ac
tually in trouble”
“It is,” he asserted, “a brand
new attempt to socialize, to fed
eralize, and to nationalize unem
ployment insurance and we are
taking an unemployment insur
ance program and converting it
—on perverting it, I should say—
into a efelfare program.”
The temporary program ap-.
proved by the 1 House provides
for Continuing payments for a
maximum of 13 weeks to the
unemployed who have exhausted
their rights under present state
laws* , 1

wage base from $3,000 to $4,800.

A Real Surprise
A famous author was auto
graphing copies of his riew novel
jin a large department store. One
gentleman pleased him by bring
ing not only his new book for
signature, but reprint editions of
the author’s two previous works
“My wife likes your stuff,” he
remarked rather apologetically,
“so I thought I’d give her these
signed copies for a birthday
“A surprise, eh?” hazarded the

er, “she’s expecting a mink coat.”
No reproof is so potent as the
silent lesson of a good example.
