RAIL PENSION ACT
HELD EXPERIMENT
Executives’ Counsel Ex
plains Law to Trans
portation Club.
# R V. Fletcher, general counsel of
the Association of Railway Executives,
told the Washington Transportation
* Club at a luncheon meeting yesterday
St the Raleigh Hotel that the railroad
retirement act is “a great" social ex
periment that may be worth its cost.
Carefully avoiding for ethical rea
sons all political and legal questions
involved in enforcement of the act due
to the recent attack on its constitu
tionality by 137 of the Nation's rail
roads, Fletcher devoted his discussion
chiefly to the history of the legislation
and the complex problems confronting
the Railroad Retirement Board in in
terpreting the law.
Fletcher said the act. representing
the first intrusion of this sort of a
governmental force into the transpor
tation field, had attracted considerable
attention because it had been regarded
In some quarters as an entering wedge
Into all forms of industry. He declared
It also had raised the question whether
a tax should be imposed on industry
-lor retirement of its employes.
Voluntary Agreement.
Nearly all the railroads of the coun
try. Fletcher explained, now have
a voluntary retirement arrangement
whereby employes are pensioned at
the age of 70 with an annuity based
on the length of service. In not a
single instance, he said, was the pay
ment of the pensions suspended during
the period of the depression, although
In some cases reductions had been
made in the rate of the annuity.
The future of this voluntary retire
ment system, as well as the cost of
compulsory plan under the retirement
•ct, Fletcher said, are two of the ques
tions that cannot be answered at the
present time. Estimates of cost, he
eaid, have varied markedly as well as
the estimates of the number of rail
road employes who will be retired
Within the next two years.
$120 Is Maximum.
Fletcher also pointed out that $120
» month is the maximum amount of a
pension under the retirement act, and
that annuities now paid by some of the
railroads under their own voluntary
retirement system are in excess of
that amount.
Fletcher traced the history of the
Voluntary railroad pension system back
to 1884 when it was first introduced
by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.
Bince that time, he said, the railroads
have paid out a total of $341,000,000
In annuities from their own earnings.
A number of prominent Government
as well as transportation officials at
tended the luncheon as guests of the
club. These included John L. Rogers
of the office of the Federal Co-ordi
nator of Transportation; Col. Alfred
P. Thom, sr„ associate counsel of the
Association of Railway Executives; Dr.
Julius H Parmelle, director of the
Bureau of Railway Economics of the
American Railway Association, and F.!
W. Robinson, vice president of the
Union Pacific System.
