THIS GIRDLE MAY RIP
Under our price support program, American
agriculture looks more and more like a fat lady
trying to squeeze into a girdle two sizes too
small. She pulls in a little bit here and she pops
out a little bit there. We read about the Louis-
iana farmer who put his cut-back cotton acreage
into wheat already bulging out of storage bins
- and the wheat farmer who put his acres into
grain sorghums to compete with the over-
abundance of corn. And so it goes.
We thought of the hefty gal and her girdle
recently when we read some "plain words"
spoken by Dr. L. J. Norton, head of the Univer-
sity of Illinois Department of Agricultural Econ-
omics, to a group of U. S. Department of Ag-
riculture employees charged with handling gov-
"Those responsible for farm programs should
clearly recognize that attempts to support prices
of any agricultural commodity above its real
value will lead to accumulations that depress
both prices and incomes," he warned. "We are
now in this position in the Corn Belt."

carry weight. His close work with mid-we t-

New S. S. Law
The 1954 amendments to the So.
cial Security Act provide immediate
benefits to a large group of survi-
vors, according to John V. Carey,
district manager, Social Security
Administration, 522 Mercer Ave-
nut, Panama City. These people are
survivors of workers who died be-
fore September 1950. If you are the
survivor of a worker who died after
June 1940 but before September
1950 and who had some work cov-
ered b social security but who
was not fully insured under the
old law, you may now be-eligible
for benefit payments.
As an example, there is the case
of John Jones who died in March
There being no further business
to come before the Board at 'his
time, it did then adjourn.
1948. He had workde about three
years and earned twelve quarters
of coverage. Since he had become
66 a few days before his death, he:
needed to have worked 22 quar-
ters, about 5% years, to be fully
Insured. When Mr. Jones inquired
we had to tell her that Mr. Jones
was not insured and that no bene-
fits were payable. The new law
changes that. If a person earned six
quarters of coverage and died be-i
fore September 1950, he was fully
insured at the time, of his death.!
Since Mrs. Jones is now. over 65,
she should get in touch with her
social security office and file a new
claim. Benefits can now be paid to
'For another example of what this
amendment means, let's take the '*
case of Bill Smith. Bill was a young
man, only 26 years old when he
passed away in June 1949. His
work record showed two years-
1945 and 1946-or eight quarters of g
work. Mrs. Smith stated that Bill

This means that the old table
handed dov.n from Aunt Sue or the
fine old chair in the attic, garage,
or basement can take its place with

Improper and slipshod storage of paint and other flammable liquids
causes hundreds of fires that damage or destroy more than 1000 U.S.
homes every day. If you store cans of paint, varnish, thinner, other
flammables, or oily rags in your house of garage, keep them in a sturdy
galvanized can with a tight-fitting lid. This practically eliminates the
danger of such a fire, and assures that if one starts, it will be confined
where It cannot cause major damage.
