tOF. COHEN SPEAKS:
Social Benefits May Be Geared to Wage Levels
Maximum benefits payable
from unemployment insurance,
workmen's compensation, and
temporary disability insurance
insurance might well be geared to
wage levels, a University expert
told the International Gerontolo-
gical Congress in Murano, Italy,
Prof. Wilbur J. Cohen of the
School of Social Work said such a
system would help preserve in-
centive of highly paid workers to
participate in these programs of

in the consumers' price index.
He said such a move would be
"undesirable and unrealistic."
"An adjustment formula relat-
ing wages solely to maximum
benefits in social insurance should
be distinguished from adjusting
all benefits in relation to prices,"
"The question of raising the
maximum benefits for these so-
cial insurance programs as wages
increase becomes an important is-
sue in almost every session of the
state legislatures," Prof. Cohen de-
"The decision to raise maximum
benefits usually comes after wages
have increased, so that injured or
unemployed -persons and their
families are adversely affected by
the time lag.
"The principle of amending-
these state programs to give ad-
ministrative agencies the respon-
sibility of determining the maxi-
mum benefits in relation to aver-
age wages in the previous year
seems to me to be worthy of sup-
"There are some technical prob-
lems involved as to what propor-
tion of the wage to use, how fre-
quent the determination should be
made, how to finance an open-
ended cost item, and the need for

This new reproduction is a com-

facsimile of the Book of Kells.
It is a folio volume bound in
full parchment and was printed
by Mrs. Graf Verlag, Olten, Swit-

Book of Kells.
The text of the Lindisfarne
Gospels is in Latin with an inter-
linear Anglo-Saxon translation
of the 10th century.
While the illumination is not as
imaginative as the Book of Kells,
it surpasses the Book of Kells in

"But if we could obtain some
automatic adjustment of maxi-

University Library accepted its
first gift in 1840 from a Wiscon-
sini fur trader.
The donor, Dr. Charles W. Bor-
up, was superintendent of the
American Fur Company trading
post near the northern tip of Wis-
consin at LaPointe, Lake Superior.

their acceptance of the "Brock-

German encyclopedia first pub-
lished in 1796-1808.
The 13 volumes of the encyclo-
pedia, still in their original bind-

Rare Book Room of the library.
Although it may seem strange
that the Library's first gift came
from a trading post ,Charles Bor-
up was no ordinary fur trader. A
native of Denmark, he was well

After coming to this country in
1828, Dr. Borup combined fur
trading with medicine, and for
many years was 'the only trained
physician west of Sault Saint Ma-
