(County Court Seal.) 25-3
Julius D. Cronin, Attorney.
by James R. Lowell
Observations made from the
spectators seat would indicate that
Governor Cochran and his legisla
tors in special session are more to
be pitied than censored. The idea
is to make Nebraskans socially se
cure (or as one of the more cynical
observers say: “Make Nebraska
secure for socialists’’) but the law
makers along with everyone else
appear to have very little con
ception of what it is all about.
The one all-impelling thought
behind the social security legisla
tion is that Nebraska will lose out
on several millions of federal funds
if laws are not passed to put the
state in line with the federal se
curity act.
It would be political suicide the
most of the legislators believe to
pass up this dollar-matching op
portunity, to say nothing of the
disappointment and hardship that
would ensue for the objects of
social security.
On the other hand, some politi
cal prognosticators venture the
opinion that the political suicide
threat will be just as great if not
greater if the social security laws
are passed. In the first place, they
say the people of Nebraska are al
ready carrying all the taxes they
can stand, and it will cost as much
as the present cost of state govern
ment to carry out Nebraska’s part
of the security laws. Moreover,
any legislation passed on so com
plicated a matter in such short
notice is almost certain to be badly
muddled. Lastly there are a
number of attorneys who are cer
tain that the federal social secui
ity act will be found unconstitu
The sum and substance of the
matter seems to be that the special
session is between the devil and
the frying pan, or what have you?
Closely informed persons agree
that the job at hand is tougher
than any Nebraska legislature has
before tackled.
Pertinent to the problem at hand
was the lecture delivered at the
University Temple last week by
Whiting Williams, well known in
dustrial psychologist. He declares
that providing jobs is the only real
social security, and that social se
curity as we are prone to look at
it is positively all wTong.No social
security law should be enacteo a*
a substitute for jobs, he said.
Williams is in favor of social
security for those physically unfit
to earn a living, but he warned
against trying to solve the unem
ployment problem with unemploy
ment insurance. He thinks the
government is on the right track
with its work relief program.
How to raise $4,000,000 painless
ly is the problem that has been
worrying the Nebraska legislature
even more than the techinicalities
involved in the social security legis
lation for which the money is to be
Rep. E. M. Von Seggern (D),
West Point publisher, maintained
that “the cheapest and easiest way
would be to get the money from the
general fund with a property tax.
It would require about a one mill
increase in the state levy, and
wouldn’t be felt,” he said. His col
leagues indicated his plan was too
bold and not in keeping with the
best political traditions.
The sales tax proponents have
decided to “lay off” the special
session and save their thunder until
the unicameral session starts in
1937, but there has been some talk
of a cigaret tax and a tax on cos
metics and other luxuries. Neither
is taken seriously, however.
The republicans have tried un
successfully to keep up the good
work started by the supreme court
when it knocksd out the one-cent
gasoline tax for relief. The bulk
of the legislators indicated, how
ever, it would stick with the gover
nor who wants the one-cent gas
tax re-enacted.
The bills sponsored by certain
Omaha persons, proposing to issue
bonds without a rote of the people
to finance work projects for relief,
the bonds to be retired with gaso
line tax money, took the count in
no uncertain manner, thereby as
suring the people of Nebraska that
one new way of going in debt will
not be available.
Schultz of Elgin voiced the al
most unanimous sentiment of his
colleagues when he said: “The use
of gas taxes to pay bonds takes the
state off the cash and carry basis
and means the pople will have to
reimburse road funds by direct tax
The unemployment insurance bill
appears to be the one least under
stood by the legislature and others
who would help them with free
This bill carries an appropriation
of $20,000 from the general fund
to pay expenses of administration,
but it was understood the $20,000
would be paid back from the un
employment compensation fund al
lotted last summer by congress.
Contributions of employers and
employees under the bill go to the
compensation fund and are to be
used for administration purposes.
The chief argument for the bill is
that the federal government is
going to extract money from Ne
braska employers and employees
whether or not the Nebraska legis
lature passes a bill, and the only
way the state can get in on this
money is to pass the measure
which teams the state up with the
federal government.
The bill provides a tax to be
paid by employers of at least one
person during any calander year.
It does not apply to farm labor,
casual employment, domestic ser
vice in a private home, or service
performed for the United States
or an instrumentality.
An Unemployment compensation
fund is created of which the state
treasurer would be treasurer. The
governor is to appoint a state-wide
council of not less than five, and
local advisory councils of nine
members, in which both employer
and employe, along with the public
at large, are to be represented.
Employers would pay into the
fund nine-tenths of one per cent of
their total wages paid during 1936,
1.80 per cent in 1937, and 2.70 per
cent thereafter. Each employee
must contribute half of one per
cent of the wage received during
1936, 1 per cent in 1937 and 1938
and 1.50 per cent thereafter. The
employer deducts the amount of
the tax from the pay envelope.
Benefits to unemployed begin
ftvo years after contributions have
started. If totally unemployed the
benefit shall be 50 per cent of the
full time wage with a maximum
of $15 per week. Benefits for the
partly unemployed are on a pro
rata basis. Payments are limited
to 15 weeks within any one year.
It is estimated that the state
will receive between $1,500,000 and
$3,000,000 in federal grants next
year, if the social security laws
pending in the special session are
passed as required by Washington.
This does not include unemploy
ment insurance which would be Ne
braska money in reality and merely
turned back to the state.
The state can expect anywhere
from $1,000,000 to $2,500,000 as
federal aid for old age pensions, it
is said. From $290,000 to $440,000
would be available for dependent
children; $60,000 to $180,000 for
blind pensions; $20,000 or slightly
more for crippled children; $26,000
or more for child welfare; and
around $50,000 for maternal and
child health.
The state would have to match
federal funds where old age pen
sions are concerned. The state
woul provide two-thirds of the
funds necessary for the care of de
pendent children.
The social security bills intro
duced in the special session include
one authorizing use of federal
funds for maternal, child and pub
lic health by the state department
of health. It would supplement a
maternal and child welfare bill in
troduced previously as part of the
Nebraska social security program.
Mindful of Tax Commissioner
Smith’s published statement that
there are 90,000 cars in the state
licensed and not taxed, the legis
lature is intent upon patching up
two bills passed by the last ses
sion and prohibiting an automobile
owner from obtaining a license un
less personal taxes on the vehicle
are paid.
Smith told a legislative commit
tee that enforcement of those two
bills, which are badly muddled as
passed last spring and hence unen
forceable, would increase the state’s
revenue by more than $130,000.
Some opposition to these meas
ures has developed. The reason
for it is that people who have
pianos, diamonds, etc., are not de
prived of the use of these articles
when they fail to pay taxes on
them. Why pick on the already
much-picked-on motorist, the op
position wants to know.
current event of much state house
interest is the recall movement di
rected against ex-Governor Bryan,
now mayor of Lincoln. The con
census of opinion is that the move
ment is sponsored jointly by demo
crats of an anti-Bryan faction and
disgruntled beer dealers who wereA
refused renewal of licenses by the
city administration.
It is a matter of fact that vio
lations of moral laws such as gamb.
ling and carousing dropped noti
ceably after Bryan took over the
city reins. At least six gambling
joints closed the doors the day af
ter he took office, the gamblers
apparently being afraid of the ex
governor. On the other hand there
are liquor stores operating in Lin
coln whose proprietors were well
known Lincoln bootleggers prior to
the repeal of prohibition.
