Don’t ’ook for much to come of it, thousii. Members of Congress would like more take-home pay— as who wouldn’t—but they’re mighty cagey about voting them selves an increase. For one thing, the voter* might not like it. And there’s an election next year. Every now and then a Con gressman gives up his job to make more money in private industry. But few have been as frank about their reasons at Texas’-Ed Gossett, who stood before the House Tues day and announced: "It has become absolutely im possible for a man to do his full duty as a Congressman and to do his full duty to his family, espe cially if he has five small chil dren. It is for the Gossett family, and not for myself, that we return to Texas” In His Seventh Term. Then after six terms and a part of a seventh, off Mr. Gossett went to a $25,000-a-year job as general counsel for a utility com pany. • Some of his neighbors In the plain-spoken Texas delegation thought Mr. Gossett had a point there. "It is a sad commentary on pub lic service that officials like Ed Gossett must be lost to the people ; because the salary which is offered for this position is inadequate for the raising of a family,” declared Reoresentative Lucas. Democrat of Texas. And Representative Thompson, Democrat, of Texas, said he knew other Congressmen who were thinking of following Mr. Gossett’s example. “Let us hope,” Mr. Thompson told the House, “that those of us who remain behind him in the Congress may have the courage jto take the obvious course to elim inate the financial aspects of the problem.” Many Items Involved. Congressmen already make con siderably more money than most people. Their salary is $12,500 a year. Then there’s a tax-free ex pense allowance of $2,500. Plus a 20-cents-a-mile travel allowance (once each way per session) to get them home to Washington and back. In addition to stationery, tele phone and similar allowances, there’s around $20,000 a year for office help—and some members devote part of this to a wife secretary. ! But there's another side to the story: With few exceptions, your Con gressman has to maintain two homes—one in his district, the other in or around Washington. Elections being the uncertain things they are, he hesitates to buy a home in Washington. So he winds up renting a place for ! $150 to $250 a month. But Keep Coining Back. Then there’s entertainment. It may or may not be the expensive cocktail party-giving type. At the least, it’s picking up the luncheon check day after day for a party of half a dozen folks from home. There’s the contribution prob lem. congressmen feel obliged to give to just about every worthy cause that comes along. And, above all, there’s the cost of getting re-elected. It costs some a power of money to keep coming to Washington term after term. The great majority keep com ing, though—or trying to come. And that’s what convinces one of their number, Representative Bur dick, Republican, of North Da kota that no pay raise is needed. The job is attractive enough as it is, he argued—must be, or peo ple all over the country wouldn’t be fighting to get it. In the 13th Century, a French master-tailor made patterns of thin wood, but was rebuked by his guild which feared women would steal them. * Si r Olive Oil Castile Soap ... at lowest price ever!
