THE PENSION overpayments
come about because under a
1969 law retirees are given extra
permanent one per cent pension
increases e a c h time their
checks are adjusted for changes
in the Consumer Price Index.
The CPI is the standard meas-
uring tool for the most of living.
The extra one per cent is
supposed to compensate for
money lost during the lag be-
tween the time living costs in-
crease and the time retirement
checks are adjusted to meet
those increases.

But in reality, the extra one
per cent compounds over the
years, pushing retirement[l
checks farther and farther
ahead of any rise in the cost
of living.
IN FACT, the faster the cost
of living increases, the farther
and faster federal pensions
move ahead.
Civil servants, congressmen
and retired military personnel
all benefit from the extra one
per cent formula, which Con-
gress approved in 1969.

Reliable Ethiopian sources re-
ported yesterday that the coun-
try's military authorities threat-
ened such reprisals if Moslem

publicly the guerrilla move-,

The sources said thousands of
Eritreans were ordered to join
