Staebler Views Issues of 88th Congress
Kerr Death Ends Career
Of U.S. Senate Leader
By KENNETH WINTER
Congressman-elect Neil Staebler
(D-Mich) of Ann Arbor discussed
the basic issues facing the 88th
Congress recently and attempt-
ed to "connect them with the larg-
er trends in politics."
Michigan's new congressman-at-
large told the Young Democrats
that he feels a tax cut, Medicare,
and more generous foreign aid are
the crucial items which Congress
In addition, he said he "will
work to make the House Commit-
tee on Un-American Activities
more respectful of civil rights,"
but probably will not vote against
its 1963 appropriation.
Staebler also plans to push a
new idea in student loan plans,
which originated in the Michigan
State University's economics de-
partment. Instead of requiring stu-
dents to repay their loans at a
certain amount per year, the re-
payment under this plan would be
tied to the person's income tax.
This would relate the burden of
repayment to the person's income.
Staebler cited President John
F. Kennedy's proposed tax cut as
a necessary stimulant to econom-
ic growth, which in turn is neces-
sary for social progress.
"Anyone who wants to see our
society accomplish the things we
have in mind would be in favor

of more growth," he commented,
explaining that in an economy
growing only as fast as popula-
tion, "any gain on the part of one
group involves a loss for another."
Staebler went on to note that
20 per cent of the United States'
people live below a "subsistence"
level and estimated that a $10
billion boost in the aggregate in-
come of this group would raise
them to the $4,000-a-year income
that is considered minimally ade-
quate for a family.
The problem, he said, is to find
a vehicle that will deliver this in-
creased income where it is needed.
Staebler feels that Medicare is
one such vehicle. "The significance
of this is in the larger scheme
into which it fits--Medicare would
do much more than merely take
care of the medical needs of the
elderly," he remarked.
He explained that Medicare re-
moves part of the burden of sup-
porting the elderly from young
families, which allows the famil-
ies extra funds to spend on educa-
tion, which "often improves the
living standards of several genera-
In this manner, medicare serves
to promote the welfare of the
aged, who receive its funds di-
rectly. But at the same time, the
benefits filter down to many other
needy segments of the population,
He said that the administration
had realized "the broader pur-
poses of foreign aid. It is essential
to the world-many nations cannot
remain autonomous without it. I
will fight for more generous econ-
He recommended that aid be
used for "smaller projects-things
its recipients can understand and
operate." He also supported birth-
control programs as part of for-
eign-aid packages, where the reli-
gion of the recipients does not
forbid such practices.
On HUAC, Staebler suggested
that "something like this is need-
ed as long as there's a considerable
segment of our population fearful
of subversion-or fearful of some-
thing," because they insist on hav-
ing somewhere to take their com-
"Also, HUAC probably reflects
the thinking of members of Con-
gress who want to participate in
something like this," he added.
Staebler said he "probably"
would support the removal of
HUAC's power to subpoena wit-
On disarmament, Staebler said
that the best test of a nation's
sincerity in arms-control negotia-
tions is "its willingness to accept
parity of power, instead of de-
manding to preserve its military

He served as governor of Okla-
homa from 1943-47, and he was
elected to the Senate in 1948,
where he soon stood out from his
colleagues during many a debate.
He backed former President Harry
S. Truman in a booming voice over
the dismissal of Gen. Douglas
MacArthur as United Nations
commander in Korea, but just as
noisily denounced him for veto-
ing a Kerr pet, the natural gas
regulation exemption bill.

the most characteristic recollec-

During one phase of the debate
over the firing of Gen. MacAr-
thur, Kerr and Sen. Kenneth
Wherry (R-Neb) talked loudly and

ments. Finally Wherry sat down
abruptly, with the remark:
"You're the first man I ever met

Turning to foreign policy, Staeb-
