Since many Florida World War
II veterans have been carrying
term GI life insurance for 15 years
or more, they should give srelous
thought to planning their futures
before the spiraling cost of term
insurance becomes prohibitive.
This word of caution was voiced
this week by Robert H. Holmes,
Officer in Charge of the VA Of-
fice at M'arianna, in reminding vet-
erans that the premiums on term
insurance increase as they grow
, Term insurance affords maxi-
mum protection at minimum cost
during the 'early ,post-service years
needed to .establish a home and a
budget 'designed for building the
future. Howevre, term Insurance is
seldom ,suitable for protection In
a policyholder's advanced age, Mr.
Holmes pointed out.
"Term premiums increase every SUND
five years, not too ,badly in the
early years, but rapidly in the id-i MORM
danced years", he said. "A $10,000 BAPT
term policy at age 40 carries a EVEN
gross annual premium of only, PRAY
$102, but at age 65 It jumps to
$476.40 aamnually-and ,to $741.60 at
Mr. Holmes said the way out is
conversion of all or part of the .,
term policy to any of ith eperman-
ent-type ,plans available, where PENT
premium rates remain the same
from year to year.
In addition, permanent insurance Pra
has a cash -surrender, extended in- Sur
surance, paid up Insurance and Mo
loan value. Term insurance has Eve
none of these, he explained.

Glidden Company Changes Name Of Social Security
Paint Division To Coating and Resin Div. Information
USDA GOViRNMENT 'INSPECTED GA. DRESSED
The Glidden Company this week
announced the change of the name
of its Paint Division to the Coat-
ings and Resnis Division.
The action was taken in Cleve-
Slind Monday at a meeting of the
Board of Directors.
Paul W. -Neidhardt, Vice Presi-
dent of the division, said the name
was changed to 'express the broad-
er product areas int which Glid-
den is moving, and will penetrate
deeper in the future.
"If we are to realize our full po-
tential," he said, our entire organi-
zation must think in terms of coat-
ings in the broadest sense, and not
in terms of paint in the narrow
"Paint Is just one of the many
coatings we produce and sell," he
pointed out. "We are moving rapid-
ly into coil coatings, expanded can
coatings,' acrylics, vinyls, vinyl
alkyds, urethanes and silicones.
"For some time, we have been
selling paper coatings, and we ex-
pect this business to .expand in the
future," Mr. Neidhardt pointed out.
"We are working on greater market
penetration an dnew applications
for coatings in other fields."
As for the use of "Resin" in, the
new name, Mr. Neidhardt explain-
ed: "Glidden has become a major
supplier of resins, and we have
plans to become an even larger
factor in this field. We are also
supplying rigid ,polyurethane foams
in commercial quantities."
"By changing the name of the
division, we do not inten dto drop
or 'diminish our interest in the
paint business," Mr. Neidhardt
said. "To the contrary, we shall
continue to work toward improving
our -position in -these important
coatings markets. For example, we
are now making plans to broaden
our 'merchandising and product of-
ferings in the trade sales field.
"But with the increasing need
for coatings of all knids, and the
increasing use of resins, we feel
the name "Coatings land Resins Di-
vision" more accurately describes
the broader research, production
and merchandising approaches to

Nobody -wants to lose money. Yet
this is happening every day, ac-
cording to John V. Carey, manager
of the Panama City Social Security
This is true because many peo-
ple who are 65 or older do not seem
to know that they do not have to
quit work completely to get all or
some of their social security bene-
fits during the year.
A person can now earn more
-money and still get some of his so-
cial security benefits during the
year. This recent change in the law
is of special interest to people who
earn between $1200 and $1700, a
year after they become eligible for
benefits. A ,person who earns more
than $1200 now loses benefits at
the rate of $1.00 in benefits -for
each $2.00 earned between $1200
and $1700. On ,earnings of over
$1700, $1.00 in benefits is withheld
for each $1.00 ,earned. These new
withholding rates apply to a per-
son's earnings during 1961.
Some parts of the social security
retirement test were not changed
by the recent amendments to the
law. A person may receive checks
for all 12 months of the year when
h- .earns $1200 or less 'during the
year. He can get a benefit payment,
also, for any month in which he
is 72 years of age or older, regard-
less of how much he earns during
the year. A person under 72 can
get a full benefit check for -any
month in which he neither earns
wages of more than, $199 nor ren-
ders substantial services'in ',self-
For further information about
whether you could get some checks
during the year if you applied for
benefits, visit, call, or write the
social security ,office at 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, Panama City, tele-
phone POplar 3-5331.
