Husband did not enter about 300
* cases on the criminal dockets dur-
ing the past three years.
Auditor Ernest Ellison said as of
June 31, 1963, the end of the audit
period, there were about 300 cases
in the open case files that had not
The audit said a check of the
open case files revealed $343 in
cash and checks and $236 in the
vault being held by the judge.
It said Husband reported the
funds were received from individ-
uals who were unable to pay the
full amount of a fine immediately.
The audit said Husband let
these persons make payments per-
iodically until the full amount was
collected and then he entered the
case on the docket, issued a com-
mitment and turned the funds over
to the sheriff.
Pre-numbered receipts were not
used for some collections of the
office, Ellison said.
The audit also said there were
errors in the judge's license reports
and balanced cash records were not

school system and needs will meet
in Wewahitchka tonight at 8:00

The- group will meet in the Car-

the situation first-hand.
All members of the committee

A very interesting program on
Japan was presented by lecture
and slides by Donald Mulholland
of Panama City to the Kiwanis
The program was presented in
lecture and colored slide pictures.
Mulholland, who was stationed in
Japan recently told the Club that
the nation compresses a popula-
tion half the size of the U S. into
an area the size of the state of
California. Japan has 656 people
per square mile compared with
50.0 in the U. S.
Japan is fifth in the world in
industry and number one in ship-
building. Her main export is tex-
tiles and her number one import is
food. Japan must import 20 percent
of its food.
He stated that everyone in Japan
works, and as a result, there re-
mains no evidence of bombing
from World War II. Everyone is
fastideously clean. Everyone takes
at least one bath every day.
The average lot in Japan, 30x
50 feet sells for $2500 U.S., and
the average house costs $3500, U.S.
An interesting custom of the is-
land is that on new year's day ev-
eryone pays off all debts, because
they believe it is bad luck to en-
ter a new year owing anyone.
Guests of the club were Sam
Morgan, John Boyd, John Paul and
Ernest Collins of Panama City and
Jo Ann Lapeyrouse, Beth Wil-
liams, Bill Versiga and Leon
Hobbs of Port St. Joe High School.

Rev. Harthern offers a big
"thank you" to all the ministers

Earnings Can Up Social Security
Payments After Benefits Are Started
Earnings received after the start has earned at least the maximum
of Social Security retirement ben- wages covered by Social Security
efits can result in an increase in'
the amount of the Social Security
check a retired person receives.
This may be news to a lot of
people. Some assume that once
they start to receive Social Secur-
ity checks the size of each month-
ly check would be the same from
then on. On the other hand, a few
people believe that any amount of
earnings after starting to receive
Social Security checks should in-
crease the size of future checks.
Their reasoning is, "I earn wages.
I pay more Social Security tax.
More tax payments to my credit
should mean I am entitled to
Whether earnings after benefits
start will increase the size of your
Social Security check depends on
how these additional earnings com-
pare with your earnings before ap-
plying for retirement benefits. Let's
take an example. Suppose that a
man turns 65 this year and that he
from 1951 on. From 1951 through
1954, $3600 a year was the maxi-
mum earnings covered by Social
Security; from 1955 through 1958,
the maximum was $4200 a year;
and from 1959 on, it has been
$4800 a year. We find on his earn-
ings record, therefore, four years
with $3600 wages credited; four
with $4200 and five with $4800.
To figure out how much this man
will receive each month from So-
cial Security, we first have to com-
pute his average monthly earnings.
We do not, however, compute this
average of the entire period from
1951 up to date. We can drop out
his five lowest years,
So, since he turned 65 in 1964,
we pick out his eight highest years
from 1951 up to 1964 and compute
his average monthly earnings over
that eight year period. Thus, for
this man, we pick out five $4800
years and three $4200 years. His
monthly benefit will be $123 a
Suppose further that his com-
pany asks him to return to work
later this year and this additional
work brings his earnings up to
$4800 for 1964. After this year is
over, we can refigure his benefit
amount to include these additional
earnings. Again we will use his
eight high years. We will add in
this $4800 year and take out one
of the $4200 years we used before.
This will raise his average monthly
earnings and will increase his ben-
efit to $124 a month. Any time in
the future he has additional earn-
ings which will raise his average,
we can refigure his benefit again.
If you receive Social Security re-
tirement benefits and have had ad-
ditional earnings since payments
started-discuss the matter with
our office as soon as possible. It's
the best way to make certain of re-
ceiving the correct retirement ben-
efits. If your yearly earnings were
more than $1200, you have a right
to ask that your benefit be refig-
