I! # COUNTY RECORD "Thundey, May II, 1967 Page S - Section I CONGRESSMAN " 1st District, Kansas REPORTS from -IIN I~umber Of Federal Employees Continues To Rise On September 20, 1966, Presi. dent Johnson issued a "freeze order" on civilian employment by the U. S. Government. Un- der that order it was indicated that the Administration was rolling the Government's civil- ian payroll back to the level of July 1966. However, instead of holding employment at the July leve , the Administration has actual- . ly increased the number d Government employees by a total of 108,910 since the date of the "freeze order." 1 29 In a statement on Apri , 1967, Hen. George Mahen (D- 'rex.), Chairman of the Joint Committee on Reduction of Nonessential Federal Expendl- tures, released the latest fig- ures on civilian employment reported by executive agencies of the Federal Government, as follows by Month. Employ- ment, and Increase: October 1066, 2,798,212, 24,- 488; November 1966, 2,634,940, ~6,726', December 1966, 2,842,- 528, 7,588; January 1967, 2,848,- 249, 5,721; February 1987. 2,864,626, 16,377; March 1967, 2,882,634, 18,008. This 108,910 increase since the September executive order comes on top of an earlier in- crease in the civilian payroll Of 35,077 employees during July, August, and September 1966, This means that 144,587 civilian employees have been added during fiscal year 1967, in direct contradiction to the terms of the Administration's "freeze order." Based on the estimate that each new civilian employee costs the Federal Government It minimum of $6,000 per year, ,ha Federal Government is now paying about $868 million Sl~tlally to meet the payroll of additional civilian employees WhIGh the Administration itself all recently as last September lald It did not need.

The Needle Craft members all enjoyed having Mrs. Ethel Loomls of Mankato as our guest. The hostess gift num- bers were passed out and Mrs. Ida Ross held the lucky num. bar, drawing a useful gift, a napkin holder. Several mere- :bars commented on the busy atmosphere of growth evident in Mankato and appreciation of the return of Dr. Schlotter- back and the opening of his clinic. On the homeward trip we paused on the hills to over- k2ok the scenery through the hills after we left Highway 14 and came down the rock road past Ed Montgomery's. There is a mile of. road here going north where one can slow the car and looking westward. catch a view of Kansas hills that extend to the horizon. When the sinking sun shines on them, they stand out with a beauty all their own, to a nature lover. Before reaching this point we took the turn around the circle that leads close to the south side of the lake where a clear view is given of the cabins and trailer houses on the north side of the lake. Stopped a moment at the monument to early pio- neers, then back to the main road again. Slowed down for one more look at the view from the hills west of Fred Ross', which is entirely differ- ent, showing east of lake and the home country along White Rock and Republicani valleys to the northeast. One hears the wish, voiced by many, to travel and see moun- tains and scenery in other re- gions, which in itself, is an enjoyable thing to do, but when the travel is completed. there is nothing so restful and peaceful to come home to as the "Hills of Home". Getting back, we disposed of our load at the Fred Ross, Emmett Rothchild, Henry Topliff, Delia Heldt and Chat Warren homes and all t'elt it an enjoyable James B, Pearson Reports From The United States Senate .-----.

He departed this life April 28, 1967 at the Mitchell County Hospital at Beloit, Kansas, at the age of 86 years, 4 months, and 25 days.
