KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY
Earl W. Trinkie, representative of thy Social Security
Administration. is in Edenlon ovary Thursday at the North
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the
Citizens Bank Building.
Most employers express sin
cere pride in the part they play
in providing social security pro
tection for their employees.
They recognize the, important of
keeping accurate records of their
employees’ earnings and the
amount of social security taxes
they withhold. They understand
too that timely reports for each
employee must be filed with the
Director of Internal Revenue at
the end of each calendar quar
Not all types of work were
covered under the social securi
ty law in 1937. For this reason,
social security reporting is rela
tively new to some, employers.
For example, domestic workers
were not covered under social
security until 1951. Most agri
cultural workers also were not
covered until 1955. Not all do
mestic and agricultural employ
ers are, therefore, aware of their
The requirements are very
specific: All domestic work
must be reported if domestics

Crotalaria Is Not Recommend
ed for Use In This Area. Cro
talaria seed has been found in
soybeans and possibly some
grains harvested in this area. It
is possible that the contamina
tion came from volunteer plants
of crotalaria which .grew and
matured in these crops.
The Pure Food and Drug peo
ple have found that fwen minute
quantities of crotalaria seed in
poultry and livestock feeds are
detrimental and poisonous. The
information indicates that poul
try is very susceptible. 'Natural
ly, soybeans and grains contain
ing very small amourtts of cro
talaria seed may be poisonous
Ito 'humans. For this reason the
I N. C. Extension Service and the
I State Dt partmeat-iaf Agriculture
'recommend that we stop using
crotalaria as a cover crop or in
any way until further notice.
1 Giant Striata variety does not
’normally mature seed in this
area. However, it is possible
that seed of earlier maturing
varieties may become mixed in
dtartt striata seed, thtts enabling
volunteer plants the following
year. I know of one or two
lots of soybeans which were re
fused by buyers last season be
cause the inspection showed a
small amount of crotalaria seed
present. While crotalaria is one
of the best summer legumes we
know of to use for soil building,
we cannot afford to take a
chance on having volunteer
plants give trouble.
About the only summer le
gumes that we know of at the
present time that may be used
in .place of crotalaria is cow
peas, velvet beans and .soybeans.

ployee worked in that quarter.
All work done on a farm for
which the worker is paid $l5O
or more in cash in' la year is
covered. The farmer worker is
also covered if he works 30 or
more days (fee the same employ
er) (luring a year for cash wages

The accuracy of employers’ re
ports cannot be over-emphasized.
The- amount of social security
benefits is directly related to the
period of employment and 'the
amount of earnings credited to
oath account. If certain em
ployees’ earnings or report only
ployees’ etarnings or report only
part of their earnings, it is im
possible for the ‘Social Security
Administration to arrive at the
true benefit payable. No re
port could mean no benefits,
while incomplete reporting may
mean only partial benefits.
If you employ a domestic or
an agricultural- worker and are
not receiving the forms for mak
ing the tax reports, ask at your
local social security office or

Savings Bond* Information;
There seems to be some com

Bonds can be kept and c©nt*nue
to draw interest after they ma

has appeared in some of the
Question-and-Answer columns, so
it seems proper to review the
First, only Series E bonds car

Now, if you’ve got some of the

Treasury also announced that an
other 10-year extension period
would be granted on all E bonds
outstanding at that time. That
meant bonds 'already into an ex
tension period at that time were
promised a second 10-year ex
tension. So, the very earliest
that any E bonds could cease to
draw interest would be 1971, as
suming no other regulations are
issued. Just one more thing:
The interest rate for that third
10-year period has not been set.
It will be announced prior to
May 1, 1961.

the greater the amount of sin in
a person's life the more of tne
grace of God is necessary to for
give and forget it. Therefore,
it is justifiable to sin 'that grace
In 'the verse quoted above
the Apostle Paul denies this
charge, and adds that those who
I slander Christians by making
I this charge against them will
| be justly condemned.
The charge could be made to
i day, 1 fear, with some justifica
tion. This past week the Asso
ciated Press interviewed some
of the religious leaders of
America (Protestant, Roman
Catholic and Jewish) concerning
the recent U-2 fiasco, in which
a nation officially atheistic
caught our “one nation under
God” in a lie. Without excep
tion the good men expressed the
opinion that, while a lie is
naughty, the greater good that
results from telling one now and'
then justifies the telling. With
glib casuistry they assured us
that it is all right to do evil
that good may come, that the
end justifies the means.
Now far be it from me to dis
agree with the religious big
brass of our nation, who occupy
the chief seats in the synagogues
—but they are wrong. (It is
su&ruf want-.that, rio*. once in. the
article was the Bible quoted, nor!
even a major theologian or de-j
cision of a Church Council). The
end never justifies the means: it
is never ali right to do evil that
good may come. What is wrong
is wrong if everybody is wrong:
and what is right is right if no
body is right.
A lie is a sin. A white lie
is a sin. A black 'lie is a sin.
And a tattle-tale gray lie is a
sin. And when we reason that
a lie can ever be justified, we
open the way for moral and so
cial anarchy—for the corrupt hu
man mind can find a plausible
excuse for any sin.
The whole trouble is that we
have substituted 'the variable
standards of men for the unal
terable standards of God. Our
ideas of right and wrong are no
longer determined 'by the Law
of God, but the "demands and
customs of 'the itimes.” And
since times and persons differ,
we have no set standard of right
and wrong, except that anything
is all right if we can find an
excuse for it and manage to es
Our churches have fallen into
the same error. Bingo games,
raffles, public begging, and oth
er -uriSeriptural means of raising
money are excused on the
ground: “It’s for a good cause.”
M'any churches no longer take an
open stand against divorce, im
momlity, pornographic literature,
obscene and blasphemous movies,
drinking, and other sins because
"everybody’s doing it, and we
