' New Law' Affects Wi
dows and Orphans
July 1 is an important date
for the widows and orphans of
World War II and Korea vet-
I erans, the Veterans Administra
tion announces. On that date
.the new Pension Law goes into
effect and widows and orphans
jof World War II and Korea vet
erans for the first time become
| eligible for VA pensions on the
'same terms as the dependents of
World War I veterans.
I Starting with July 1 the wi
■ dows and orphans of veterans of
; World War II and Korean scr
. vice and of World War I are
I eligible for pensions if the vet
eran was in active military ser
vice for 90 days or more, part of
it during wartime, and was dis
charged under conditions other
than dishonorable. j
Certain limitations of income
also apply. But. VA said, it will
no longer be required after July
that the veteran had a service
connected disability at the time
of his death.
Under the new Pension Law.
'if the widow has a minor child
1 and her income is no more than
SI,OOO annually, she is entitled
to receive 575 per month. If
her income is between SI,OOO
and $2,000 annually, she may get
S6O monthly. If the income is
I between $2,000 and $3,000, she
j may get S4O.
J VA said if a widow has more
I than one child, the monthly pay
' merit may be increased bv sls
for each additional child. But |
if her income totals more than |
$3,000 annually, she will not be
eligible for pension.
VA recommended that widows
of World War II and Korea vet
erans who may be eligible got
in touch with the nearest VA

Strange Words From A Deacon
. A minister told his flock that
he had a “call ’ to go to another
church. One of the deacons
asked how much more he was
“Three hundred dollars," was
' the reply.
“Well. I don't blame- you for
going. remarked the deacon,
“but vou should be more exact
in your language, parson. That
isn't a 'call.’ that’s a raise’.’
