TEACHERS' PAY INCREASES
Mr. MANSFIELD. Mr. President, I
listened with interest to the program on
"Face the Nation" yesterday, in which
the chairman of the economic boards
created by the President answered questions

pay raises was brought up and that some
encouragement was iorthcoming that ·
they would be given reconsideration.
May I say that if any group has a right
to be reconsidered, it is the teachers
group which, over a period of months before
the August 15 wage-price-rent control
freeze went into effect, had signed
contracts in good faith and had looked

in teachers pay agreed to last spring.
last summer, and even last winter, were
not overly high insofar as the percent-

to say that I am delighted they are going
to reconsider this matter. I am hopeful
that justice will be done to the teachers
of this country, come Friday or Sat-urday
