House panel rules out
LANSING (UPI) - The House
Civil Rights Committee has unani-
mously approved legislation banning
mandatory retirement policies in
public and private jobs.
The landmark bill, reported to the'
House floor yesterday, states that
employers cannot dismissemployes
solely on the basis of age.
SENIOR CITIZENS' rights advo-
cates say forced retirement at 65
consigns many competent workers to
unwanted idleness, robbing society of
their talents and robbing them of
Others, however, have warned that
eliminating mandatory retirement
may mean fewer new jobs will be
created for unemployed young per-
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Perry
Bullard, (D-Ann Arbor), said dis-
crimination against the elderly in the
name of increasing job opportunities
is no more justified than discriminat-
ing against women to make more
jobs for men.
THE MEASURE is not expected to
have a dramatic impact on the job
market since it is believed that most
elderly workers will voluntarily
choose early or normal retirements
-especially if adequate benefits are
"Even those strongly in favor don't
believe this is going to be a large
number of people who will decide to
keep working after 65," said Rep.
Wilbur Brotherton, (R-Farmington).

proved $462 million for building the fifth
and sixth B-1 aircraft, going along with
arguments that limited production of
the manned bomber should continue if
only as a bargaining chip in disarma-
ment talks with the Russians.
CONGRESS had appropriated the
money for the two aircraft before de-
ciding to scrub production money for
future B-1s. Four research and devel-
opment models have been built.
Carter and opponents had argued
that to build the two aircraft would be a
waste of money. "Everyone agrees you
cannot fight a war with six B-1s," said
Rep. Joseph Addabbo, (D-N.Y.)
But Rep. Robert Dornam, (R-Calif.),
who represents/the district where the
North American Rockwell aircraft are
assembled, said that building two more
aircraft would keep the assembly line

THE SENATE had rejected the

$7.8 billion appropriations bill. Now the
Senate must take a second vote on the

proved some $200 million to help the
poor pay their utility bills this winter.)
The fuel bill program is identical to
the emergency measure passed to aid
the poor last winter. It has already been
approved by the Senate in its version of
the appropriations bill.
OPPONENTS SAID state govern-
ments and private groups should aid
the poor, while supporters said the aid
was a stopgap, humanitarian measure.
Rep., Robert Giamo, (D-Cann,), the
chairman of the House Budget Commit-
tee, said the nation could not add new
social service programs indefinitely
while cutting taxes, as Congress will
likely do next year.
Rep. Robert Michel, (R-Ill.), said
many states failed to spend the utility
bill money they received last year. He
complained that the availability of the
fuel bill money had to be advertised i
his hometown of Peoria. "This doesn't
sound like an emergency program to
me," he said.
The appropriations bill also included
some'$80 million to keep the nation's
nuclear breeder reactor program
roughly on schedule despite President
carter's attempts to kill it.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The head
of the nation's largest union of public
employees said yesterday the still-
evolving White House urban policy is
"a modest battle plan in a crisis that
calls for an all-out assault." He called
for city leaders to join with labor in
seeking a bolder program.
Jerry Wurf, head of the American
Federation of State, County and Mu-
nicipal Employees (AFSCME), spoke
to members of the National League of
Cities. Minutes later, several influ-
ential Democratic mayors praised Car-
ter's urban record.
THE MAYORS signaled that' they
were not yet ready to join the chorus of
skepticism concerning the urban plan
when Henry Maier of Milwaukee said,
"I don't think that with the kinds of
things on his desk, we can expect a lot

Democratic Mayors, nevertheless call-
