U. S. Workers Honored,
Nixon Hails Standards
Vice President Richard M. Nixon said today the great
majority of Government workers are a credit to America even
though a few may be subject to “legitimate criticism" by those
examining Government operations.
He spoke at the 45th anniversary celebration of the Labor
Department in the Departmental Auditorium here.
A few who work for the Government may at times “not
meet the standards we would, ——
like to see for Government
service." the Vice President
said, but he added the great
majority do. He said the same
was true of labor leaders. Mr.
Nixon noted that “abuses are
Inevitable" In any institution
the size of the labor movement.
But there are many labor lead
ers who have maintained high
■tandards of integrity, he added.
We must “point to them with
pride at the same time we point
to the minority leaders who
abused their position of trust,”
Mr. Nixon said.
Mitchell Presides
Labor Secretary Mitchell pre
aided at the celebration. He
told the gathering h- foresaw
some of the most critical years
ahead lor the department.
“This Government will not for
any length of time tolerate any
extensive long-term unemploy
ment," Mr. Mitchell declared,
“and will proceed with vigor to
do whatever Is In the province
of Government to relieve It.”
The awards program com
memorated the founding of the
department on March 4, 1913,
“to foster, promote and develop
the welfare of the wage earners
of the United States.” Mr.
Mitchell presented honor
awards for distinguished serv
ice to six employes and meri
torious service awards to 17
He also presented a special
citation to Walt Kelly, creator
of the comic strip “Pogo," for!
his assistance to the depart
ment and his contribution to
the Stay-in-School program.
The cartoonist, whose strip
appears in The Star and many
Other newspapers, donated
"Pogo” to symbolize the cam
Other presentations made
to employes by Secretary Mitch
ell were four group honor j
awards, 11 40-year awards and
20 35-year length of service;
awards. Mr. Mitchell himself
was the surprised recipient of
a 10-year award for his ac- 1
cumulated Federal service. Mr.
Nixon made that presentation.

Questions, Answered
On Raise Prospects
Star Staff Writer
It’s only natural for Federal employes to be intensely in
terested in the Government pay raise legislation.
That's why, everywhere this reporter goes, he is inevitably
asked by Federal workers if they are going to get a raise this
year, how much it will be and whether it will be retroactive.
And it’s understandable that employes are somewhat con-
fused by the political maneu
vering on the pay raise leg
islation and the pro and con
predictions concerning what
amount of pay raise will be
signed by President Eisenhower
and what would be vetoed, etc.
So, in question-and-answer
form, here 1« our view on Fed
eral pay raise chances.
** * *
TAIN—WiII Government class
fled and postal employes re
ceive a pay raise this year?
Definitely yes.
When will pay raises become
Probably the last of April or
the first part of May.
Will the Increases be retro
They may be, but certainly
not to August 25, as provided
in the House Civil Service Com
mittee bill, or even October.
1. There is some chance that
it will be retroactive to January
1, 1958. But the later final
action on the legislation oc
curs, the later the retroactive
date, if any, will be. Some
feel the retroactive date will be
March 1, 1958. or that there
will be no retroactivity at all
if the pay bills are not enacted
into law until late spring or
early summer.
How much of a pay raise
will we receive?
Classified workers probably
will receive an increase of be
tweeen 7.5 to 8.5 per cent. Prob
ably 8.5 per cent if postal
workers are able to obtain a
raise of 9 per cent, or so, as
seems likely as part of the pos
tal rate increase bill.
Why do postal workers re
ceive a higher raise than classi
fied employes?
Because postal workers are
much more heavily organized
than classified employes and
consequently, have much more
political influence in Congress
This does not justify the pay
bills treating them more gen
erously, but it explains why
they are dealt with more
Would President Eisenhower
veto a pay raise in excess of 9
or 19 per cent?
What would happen then?
Congress would then try to
override and probably fail. This
woqld mean that Congress
would then revise the salary
provisions to a compromise fig
ure acceptable to the President.
Is there a chance of averting
a veto so that Congress won't
have to enact a second round
o spay raise bills before they
are signed?
Yes. Both Democratic and
Republican leaders in Congress
have indicated they will confer
with the President and try to
work out an acceptable com
promise that would be agree
able with the White House.
They want to avoid a veto if
at all possible.
Why is' it so certain that
Federal classified and postal
employes will receive a pay
raise this year?
First, because this is an elec
tion year and both the Demo
crats and Republicans feel that
such increases are desirable.
Second, the administration,
which opposed any pay raises
last year, is at last convinced!

with a UAW representative five
times before he accepted.
The UAW statement, released
at the Senate Rackets Subcom

45-month-old strike against the
Kohler Co. of Wisconsin, was

Walter Reuther, union presi
Senator Goldwater said the
union statement was “substan
tially correct,” adding:
“Now the union confirms
what I said about Reuther
running out on me. I am glad
they are confirming it.”
Senator Goldwater referred
to, a television debate sched
uled in Detroit last June 14
between the two. Mr. Reuther
was replaced by Vice President
Leonard Woodcock because, to
day’s statement said, “a change

It impossible for him to be In
