Just before the Senate de- 1 ,

Senator, forecasting the adverse

There are other social securi-l
ty expansion goals which the,
organization is pushing and
which may become hot issues in
the period ahead.
For example, AFL-CIO offi

time within the next 25 years,,
should receive on retirement at
least 60 percent of his earn
And, for this purpose, they
think that the wage base, on
which both employers and . em
ployees are taxed, should be
tripled, or at the very least dou
bled—or perhaps be even un
limited. The' taxable wage base
now is $4,800 per year. 1
Incidentally, these officials
foresee wages somewhat more
than doubling in the next 25

doubt that what has taken

“Liberals” in Congress al
ways are pushing a program,
which they regard as vote-lur
ing, for providing workers with
more substantial social • security
benefits. Usually, these pro
grams are advocated most vig
orously in election years.
Conservatives are convinced,
that the ultimate goal of many!
of the social security expansion
advocates is a system of com
pulsory socialized medicine for
the United States.
The conservatives, therefore,
are firmly resisting any effort
to expand the social security
system in this direction.

program advocated by Senator
Kennedy, which would have
been financed by increasing so

Both the Administration and
Vice President Nixon, however,
also gave their support to a
broader plan but along the
same general lines advocated
by Senator Javits (R-N.Y.) and
others. The Javits amendment
was rejected by a 28 to 67 vote.

toward socialized medicine.

Os Importance To Every Buyer Os A 1961 Automobile
The Warranty On All 1961
Ford Motor Company Cars
Is Being Extended To 12,000 Miles
Or One Full Year
The 1961 line of all Ford Motor Company passenger cars
will bring to the American market the finest automobiles
ever produced by this company.
Every Ford Falcon, Thunderbird, Mercury, Comet and
Lincoln-Continental has been styled, designed, engineered
and manufactured with three primary goals in mind: (1)
Finest Quality; (2) Greatest Durability; (3) Most Reliable
So confident are we of the success of our efforts to ach
ieve these goals that the written warranty on all 1961 Ford
Motor Company cars is being extended to 12,000 miles or

No other American automobile carries a warranty like
this. The previous Ford warranty, traditional in the indus
try, was for 4,000 miles or three months.
We urge every prospective purchaser of a 1961 car to
visit his Ford Motor Company dealer and learn all about the
dealer’s new T 12,0000-mile or one-full-year warranty.
