off and running.
The biggest surprise of the young campaign was the
withdrawal of President Johnson from the race Sunday
night. But, like he said, this leaves him free to operate for
the remainder of the year with no fear of political reprisal.
And it also leaves Bobby Kennedy and Eugene Mc-
Carthy with nobody to carve up; but each :other. '
The Democratic convention in Chicago ought to be a
The turn of events Sunday 'night probably made Nixon,-
feel good. I suspect that he thinks it will be much easier
to whip Kennedy or the& lesser: known McCarthy than it
would be to defeat the incurfibhnt president,
Somebody said the bass were biting up in Lake Wimi-
co, so I got up early Saturday, took up number one son,
Ray, and we went to Lake Wimico.
This was quite a sacrifice since Saturday is the one
day in the week that we can lay in bed until 8:00 a.m.
and just luxuriate-before having to get up and go to
But we got up early Saturday at 6:00 a.m. and
headed for Lake Wimico. We paddled and plugged for
two hours and not a rise was to be had. So back to work
and a resolve to try later on.
Well, the cold weather must be. gone now. With the
exception of the Easter Sunday morning cool snap, of
course. Save out one change of warm clothing for that
week end and store the rest for the summer. It's play-
time in Florida, now.., and politicing time.
With the advent of the politicing comes the coffees,
the receptions and the get-togethers for the out-of-town
politicians. They have to come to town and get acquaint--
ed. This is fine, but it sure eats into our work day. But
it only comes every two years, so we will be there when-
ever at all possible, to meet all the candidates.
.We-had to ride up to Chattahoochee last Thursday
afternoon on some business. You should see the dog-
woods in bloom!- Even if we didn't have to go on business,
the ride and the view was worth the time.
We received a call last week stating that there was
no heat in one of the Elementary School buildings when
the temperature was down in the 40's. This is'inexcusable.
The School has perfectly good heaters ... or so we have
been told. Somebody should certainly be on the ball
enough to try and keep such as this from happening.
We have just come through a seige of pointing out
what we don't have and what we need. In remembering
this past unpleasantness, it seems that we could at least
make use of what we do have.

Delay In Filing Social Security Claims
For Disability May Cause Income Loss
Disabled persons in this area
who do not file a claim for Social
Security benefits when they be-
come disabled is of great concern
to Jerry Myers, Acting District
manager of the Panama City So-
cial Security office.
Many people wait months and
some even years before filing a
claim. By not filing a claim soon

after they become disabled, these
individuals are in many cases los-
ing money and delaying payment
of benefits they are entitled to.
Myecrs pointed out that a claim
should be filed just as soon-as it
appears likely the disability will
last 12 months or more. Prompt
filing will help to insure prompt
payment to persons entitled to
In addition to being unable to
engage in any substantial gainful
activity for 12 months or more, a
worker must have worked under
Social Security a certain amount
of time to be eligible for monthly
benefits. For most persons, five
years of work under Social Secur-
ity out of the 10 years just before
becoming disabled is needed.
The 1967 amendments make it
possible for persons who become
disabled before age 31 to qualify
with less than five years. These
young workers need credits for
half the time between age 21 and
the time they become disabled.
Workers who are disabled before
age 24 can qualify with as little
as 1% years of work credits.
Myers urged anyone not sure
whether he would meet the re-
quirements for disability to get in
touch with the Social Security of-
fice. If you doshmeet the require-
ments a claim should be filed im-
mediately. Monthly benefits are
payable after a disability has last-
ed six full calendar months.

this area is located at 1135 Harri-

Calling for Cancer
During the month of April, there
will come a knock at the door or
a ring of the doorbell. The caller
may. be a stranger, or often a
neighbor already known.
In either case, he or she will be
a volunteer of the American Can-
cer Society, prepared to leave life-
saving information, and asking for
support for the Society's work.
The volunteer will also be one
of some 2,000,000 who each April
go out on the "Cancer Crusade"-
and who in a very real way are
symbols of America's miracle.
The name of this miracle is
"voluntarism" and it has been part
of our nation .since the days of
the first settlers.
High among our domestic haz-
ards today are diseases, and not
just the 'good old-fashioned' germ-
caused d i s e ases of yesteryear.
Many of those have been largely
The so-called "degenerative" di-
seases are another matter, how-
Lver. And perhaps the most mys-
terious and tragic of them is can-
cer. Its fundamental cause still re-
mains to be unraveled by research.
Even so, much has been done to
save lives, and more can be. The
Cancer Society informs us that
sonie 200,000 Americans will be
saved this year. An additional
100,000 might be, but won't-be-
cause diagnosis and/or treatment
.may come too late.
That is why the information the
American Cancer Society volunteer
will bring can be a matter of life.
Ours. But to carry on its work of
education, service and research,
"the support must be ours as well.
