By Senator Tony Asimus
L. B. 379, the Teacher’s Retire
' ment Bill, was debated and argued
for the past six days. Numer
ous amendments were attached to
it and some of the amendments
were amended. The sponsors of
! this bill had hard sledding holding
their lines, and some amendments
were disastrous. The correspon
, dence coming to the Senate is
about equally divided pro and con.
! In the final shift this bill was re
ferred back to the standing com
mittee for further consideration.
Much gossip has been engaged in
by senators, lobbyists and spec
tators in relation to any teachers
retirement bill at this time of
pending war and general economic
distress. Several teachers ex
pressed themselves as unfriendly
to such legislation on various
occasions. This bill was later kill
ed in committee.
L. B. 470, gasoline tax exemp
tion for farm power, now appears
to be safely headed for third read
ing and passage. This bill has been
stubbornly contested all along the
line in this session as in previous
sessions, but public sentiment has
steadily grown in strength to the
advantage of the bill. This is the
ninth session this bill has tried to
make the hurdle.
L. B. 135, known as the Chadron
j bill, mentioned in last week’s let
ter, was passed on third reading
Friday. The Legislature gagged
considerably at swallowing this
legislation but finally did so by
one vote. During the voting the
official lobbyist for the Nebraska
League of Municipalities was or
dered from the Senate Chamber.
The inscription over the north
door of the Capitol “The salvation
of the State is Watchfulness in
the Citizen,” is the fundamental
mainspring of Constitutional gov
ernment. The “watchfulness in
the citizen” not only moulds pub
lic opinion, but also promotes or
blocks pending legislation. There
is ever minority groups and spec
ial interests seeking selfish advan
tages by legislation that should
arouse the watchfulness of the

Congress passed a law a year
ago requiring all foreign controlled
political organizations to register

give Uncle Sam information on

Sam is powerless ■to do anything
about it because no funds were pro

The Federal Bureau of Investi
gation started with annual appria
tions of around $!5,000,000. This
year appropriations will be over
$10,000,000 which includes $8,750,
000 for special defense activities.
After the present emergency de
fense activities will cease and the
F. B. I. will go back on a budget
of around $7,000,000 a year.
It is widely contended here that
the President as Commander-In
Chief of the Army and Navy has
the power to provide escorts for
convoys in England. Some, how
ever, dispute that power. The lend
lease bill practically guarantees aid
to Britain. The next question is
how to get those supplies over.
Some mebers anticipate orders for
escorting convoys most any day.
These members believe this would
mean war, and that is why many
members opposed the lend-lease
Nebraskans coming to Washing

crowded streets of Washington for
groups of Nebraskans to meet and

Just now we are hearing a great
deal about the tremendous step-up
in our governmental defense due to
our eleventh hour program and ad
option of the all-out aid to Great
Britian plan. In view of the mili
tary situation in Europe this is
only natural. Thirty-five billions
is now the tentative mark placed on !
the amount of our expenditure dur- i
ing the coming fiscal year for de-!
fense-aid in its various phases.
At the same time, however, we I
must not lose si^iit of the fact that
our non-defense expenditures are |
increasing. Nov when there have |
been pledges that non-defense ex
penditures would be cut down in
order to make up, in a slight way,
for the increase jn military costs it
is said that 4>urtcivilian federal ex
penditures are £ nicreasing in the
same old way. .Few people realize
how steady thik increase has been
during the past eight or nine years.!
The National Association of Manu- j
facturers recently made a study
which disclosed the fact that the
increase in our non-defense outlay
in 1942, as compared with the year
1932, just ten years ago, is mfire
than three billion dollars. This in
crease of course has been steady in
the past decade. Breaking this in
crease down in various depart
ments the survey indicates the fol
lowing increase in 1942 as com
pared with 1932:
Executive office and
ments . $1,542,132,000
Department of Agri. 1,053,180,000
Interest on public Debt 625,277,000
General public wks. 223,549,000
Treasury Dept._ 116,635,000
Dept, of Commerce _ 42,102,000
Dept, of Interior . 22,403,000
Dept, of Labor _ 21.854,000
Dept, of Justice 12,736,000
Legislative establishment 3,587,000
Dept, of State 1,742,000
If wc are to havj real national
defense it must be economic as well
as military. If we do not preserve
our sound econom c fabric then
sooner or later we are going to suf.
