IVAfiE EARNERS 'LEND' BILLION Social Security Payments Pile Up In National Treasury Uncle Sam already has harrowed almost a billion dollars from the nation's wage earners under pro visions of the social security, act. treasury ledgers showed today, . The act envisions the building of a huge reserve' fund which eventu ally will aggregate more than $40, 000,000,000 if the law remains un changed.. . Special treasury obligations are issued to the reserve fund. Bene fits under the. old age pension and unemployment compensation pro grams are to be paid from it. In treasury practice, tax collec tions under the security act flow into the government's general fuad. or pool of ready cash. These col lections are spent for day-to-day government operations. Against these collections, the treasury deposits the special obli gations in reserve accounts. These obligations in effect are promises to pay off old age and unemployment benefits. Reach $916,000,000 The obligations thus far have ag gregated $916,000,000, and the treas ury is indebted to the country's workers in that amount. "' President Roosevelt, noting in his revised budget message effects of the security law and the parallel railroad retirement act said a total of $1,075,000,000 in special reserve account obligations would be issued during this fiscal year. That total, he said, would be suf ficient to finance the estimated $695,000,000 net deficit and reduce the debt outstanding in the. hands of the public by $380,000,000. This system of borrowing event ually may have a profound effect on investment practice, because it means a shift in federal borrowing from the money markets to those who pay security taxes. , Persons 'who have salted away their tax-free federal' obligations may find this field of investment drying up. , , . . So far, the treasury has not ac tually bought back any of its out standing obligations from investors, but this will be done as . the re serve fund piles up.

C. The project is spon sored by the Rabun Land and Water company, of Atlanta, Ga. The lines are expected to serve about 100 customers in the specific territory in Georgia and North Carolina. J. B. McCrary, 25 Marietta street, Atlanta, owns the sponsoring com pany which has a hydoelectric plant and is already serving 77 customers. The company will add. $8,000 of its own funds to the government loan. A schedule for legal and engi neering steps will be 'sent 'to Mr. McCrary by the REA in the near future. Strict adherence to this schedule which is set up to assist in the orderly and efficient handl ing of the work, will enable the farmers on these lines to begin us ing electricity by next summer. The normal progress schedule for REA projects has been established on the basis of average conditions. Local conditions beyond the control of anyone often cause delays. One of the most frequent causes of de lays is the difficulty in securing rights-of-way. No REA funds may be used to pay for rights-of-way. . A number-, of .farmers in.- the, sec tion around Otto and. on to the Georgia line will be served by this new development, which is the first REA project in this part of the. state.

FRANK BLOXHAM Chairman lof Red Croi Roll Call Committee for Macon County Once again the people of Macon county are ' to be given an oppor tunity to share in the work of the American Red Cross. .. v The Annual Roll Call for mem berships will be held at the usual time, November 11 through the 25. The achievements of the past should act as a spur to lead us on to greater successes this year. ,lt is very gratifying to note that for the past three years we have increased our memberships each year. Last year the total exceeded the 300 mark, and this year we are asked to try and make it 50U. As a county we should be content with nothing less than this small figure but should aim to -make it even more. If we each d6 'our part, the goal will easily ,be ''reached. -: Times have greatly unproved .for' us all and we have had no catas trophe to create havoc - in.-, our . midst. We should indeed be thank- ful and express our gratitude in a tangible way. Let us ever ; re--member that by subscribing" our. ' membership dollar to the American ' Red Cross we are actually becom ing a part of the organization, and we, can say, in every disaster that overtakes any section, of the Coun- ; try, that we are at work there -helping to relieve distress and care foi? need. ' J . - Carries Out Vatt Pnognam So many people say that even: after . joining the Red - Cross ' at this time of the year they have . been called upon, in . cases of major disasters, to contribute to emergency funds. That is true. The' Red Cross is carrying out a vast program of relief, safety, health, first aid, home nursing, '.etc., all the while, for which funds are regularly contributed at- the tune of the Roll Call, and ; when these other major, disasters, da overtake , portions of our country a call must be made, for funds to meet an emergency that could not be an ticipated, and which it was hoped , would not occur. .''., The work of the Red Cross immense -and I hope during ' the next few weeks to give in a series of : articles ' some account of the. work being done. . . I am grateful to The Franklin Press for this " opportunity to 'ac- quaint you . with the work for I feel, that if you know "what is be ing done you . will as has been the cae in the- past, cheerfully support this work.
