(1975) Held an increase in pensions for persons already retired based on cost of living violates article VI, § 25, Constitution of Missouri, and that pension funds retain their identity as public funds.  Section 86.441 insofar as it applies to persons already retired on August 13, 1972, is unconstitutional.
