I 1 said that despite current situ ations. he nourished “serene ■ Christian optimism.” The Pope said that he hoped and prayed that when the "legitimate aspirations” of peo ples for liberty and independ -1 ence are attained, that "the 1 richest will aid the poorest, the strongest will sustain the weakest, and the most id vanced will extend a hand to the least developed, and all finally feel themselves to be brothers because all are sons of the same Father who is in Heaven.” “We have mentioned the word peace.” said Pope John. “A prayerful message of peace is what we wish to address to the whole world on the thres . hold of this new year.” I The Pope said that it was a .

Employment during the fiscal year starting July 1, 1961, and ending June 30. 1962, would rise from 2,383,000 to 2,420.000. This would be a gain of 37,000 jobs scattered in various de partments and agencies. While the new Kennedy ad ministration is expected to re vise the budget requests after taking office, the Eisenhower job estimates are not expected to be reduced. If anything, the Kennedy budget requests may be for more jobs to cover pro posed new programs. President Eisenhower's budg et request calls for 849 new jobs for the National Aeronau tics and Space Agency, 735 of them in the Washington area. Six hundred new jobs are for NASA’s new Goddard Space Flight Center at Belts ville, while 135 are for the agency's headquarters here. The civilian employment of the Defense Department, the Government’s largest employer, would remain the same. The budget also calls for a total of 1,025,000 civilian jobs in the defense agencies by June 30, 1962, exactly what the total is expected to be as of July 1, 1961. Breaking it down by depart ments, Army would have 384,000 civilian employes in fiscal 1962; Air Force. 299,000, and Navy, 340,000, all un changed from fiscal 1961. The Office of the Secretary of De fense would have 1,862 em ployes in fiscal 1962, a reduc tion of 79 employes from its present total of 1,941. In his final budget message, Mr. Elsenhower urged Congress to take a more realistic look at Federal salaries, particularly in , the middle and upper brackets ' where he said inadequate salaries were making it difficult for the Government to attract ’ and retain key employes in these jobs. Mr. Eisenhower also called for Congress to take steps to finance adequately the civil [ service retirement system. ! ——a———a I 1 charity and an example of peace solemnly proclaimed to i all nations by this supreme see, . which is the center of Catholic i unity.” 1 Cites Church Troubles Pope John also turned his at . tention to current troubles of ' the Catholic Church in various ( parts of the world.

Employe Unit Alerts Administration | By JOSEPH YOUNG Star Staff Writer The National Federation of Federal Employes has urged 1 the incoming Kennedy administration to “halt the rapidly ’ growing practice” of contracting-out long-established Govern -1 ment work to private industry. * The independent employe union sharply criticized the Eisenhower administration for “persistently" following a policy of abolishing vital functions regularly performed by Federal 1 employes and transferring the : j work to industry. The NFFE expressed hope ] that President-elect Kennedy will reverse this trend. It ' quoted a statement made by ' Mr. Kennedy several years ago . warning against "an overzeal- ■ ous pursuit” of the goal to ‘ withdraw the Government from ' so-called commercial enter . prises. • In a letter at that time to . the House Appropriations Com- T mittee, the-then Senator Ken . nedy declared, “I believe it is f wise to review the commercial operations engaged in by the j Federal Government and to j withdraw from commercial . enterprise where it can be done > safely. • However. I would ' counsel against an overzealous [ pursuit of this goal which > might have highly undesirable ' results.” The NFFE said the Eisen t hower administration’s con s trading out policies with their r lucrative cost-plus contracts, t rather than saving the tax s payers’ money, actually were more costly than if the work ■ were done by Government em : ployes. 1 These policies have not only > resulted in the loss of jobs of * many thousands of highly * skilled and trained civilian em- * ployes and added costs to the - taxpayers, but pose a serious ■ threat to the Nation’s security, ’ the NFFE asserted. “This is a matter of grave ’ importance to the security of ? the Nation, and one in which ‘ every citizen and taxpayer has , a direct and vital concern” the , NFFE noted. “It is our hope : that the incoming administra £ tion will give the matter , prompt and constructive atten tion.” I** * * ) SENATE STUDIES The 1 Senate Civil Service Committee has asked the Senate for 865,- f on Wednesday Pope John will 3 give the new princes their , birettas, the square-shaped hats : of office. The highlight will oe a brilliant public consistory in St. Peter's Basilica Thursday, when the new cardinals receive - their broad-brimmed red hats, [ the special emblem of rank t which normally is never worn. t At a final secret consistory t Thursday the Pope will present , their cardinal rings and titles ' to churches in Rome. Arch bishop Ritter will receive title i to St. Alphonsus, a century s old church recently designated 1 a titular church. 1 Elevation of the four new * cardinals raised the member ship of the college to a record ’ high of 85.

Senate approval is considered certain. The funds also will be used to set up "guidelines” for identifying career civil service jobs in Government and those which should be filled with out regard to civil service. The committee intends to publish a complete list of non-civil service jobs for use by the Kennedy administration. Although there have been unofficial lists published re cently, a full roster of all non civil service jobs has not been compiled. Regarding health insurance, the Senate group wants to study the inequities in the program about which employes have complained and to initiate ac tion on what improvements it feels are justified. The same holds true for the life insurance program.
