Tho project of pensioning civil
employes of tho government, with
out expense to the government, 1b
again being actively agitated in
Washington. The U. 8. Civil Ser
vice retirement association, organ
ized a year or two ago to push this
project bus been reorganized and
will prepare a bill, which "congress
will ho asked to pass. This bill
will be based upon information
given in response to an act of the
last congresB, calling upon the
heads of departments for a list of
employes giving ages and length of
service and will provide for the
creation of a pension fund by the
retention of a small percentage of
all civil salaries, probably about
three percent. It will provide that
retired civil employes shall be paid
ono-half the salaries thoy recoived
when retired. Tho only expense to
the government, under this plan,
would bo for the clerical help need
ed for the collection and disburse
ment of the pension fund. It is
claimed that the U, B. is the only
one of tho great civilized nations
that does not provido in some way
for the ponsion of agod civil service
employes. Prance has a systom
something like the one proposed.
The rest of the nations pay the pen
sions from public funds.
