Carver Urges
Passage of City
Pensio Plan
Passage of the charter arneniment
in the Nov. 5 election adding a pen
sion and retirement plan for city em-
ployees was urged yesterday by Prof.
Harry C. Carver of the mathematics
Prof. Carver, in addition to being
president of the Police and Fire-
men's Pension and Retirement Board,
has acted as adviser to the city coun-
cil's pension committee and has aid-
ed materially in working out the pio-
posed plan.
In pointing out that this plan
would cost taxpayer.} less money and
provide them withs etter servics,
Prof. Carver said most people are un-
aware ' that city employees do not
come under the provisions of the So-
cial Security Act.
"Without a visible pension plan,"
he added, "one may be sure that a
city is forced to have an invisible
plan which raises costs and lowers
the quality of the services performed
by the city."
"This occurs since a city has no
other way to reward an old faithful
employee except by allowing the em~
ployee to remain on the payroll p~ast
the years of his maximrlusr ueful-
ness," Prof. Carver explained.
Although it will take a few years
before the ,full effects of 1-his plan
will be felt, Prof. Carver added that
it is a necessary step forward toward
better government.

"monstrosities" unworthy of ex-servicemen in ordering abandonment of the half-completed city veterans
housing project in Phoenix, Arizona. Officials said an estimated $150,000 already had been spent on the
temporary structures, designed for 156 veterans and their families.

Wise Hits At Schools
For Discrimination
Discrimination in admissions to
professional schools is a "nationwide
practice, in one guise or another,"
Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of
the American Jewish Congress, as-
serted here yesterday.
Dr. Wise, who last spring brought
action to cancel Columbia Univer-
sity's tax exemption on grounds of
discriminatory practices, reported
that "it has been interesting to ob-
serve that the number of Jewish
students admitted to the Columbia
medical school has been increasing
since the institution of the suit."
