Recently the newspapers car
ried a photo of President Ken
nedy’s office, a striking feature j
being a closeup view of his!
desk, which was geometrically j
precise and neat. The next
morning when I walked into The
Herald office, ye editor’s desk
had also been policed to presi
dential standards. On the sur
face, that is a simple statement,
but 'when -you realize that ye
editor's desk has been kept in a
state of organized confusion, the;
Cleanup must have had its im-!
ipetus in some mighty upheaval
of industry. , Ye editor said thej
cleanup was the result of a
search for something he just had
to find. Now, if you ask me,
there is only one emergency that I
would cause all that energy on!
KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY 1
I.ihn T. Grooms, representative of the Social Security
Administration, is in Edenton every Thursday at the North
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the
Citisens Bank Buiidng. i
Under the old law, which;
stays in effect until 1961, a
beneficiary under age 72 w,ho ;
goes to work and earns more
than SI2OO loses one month’s
benefit check for every SBO (or,
fraction of $80) by which his|
earnings go over SI2OO. Earn-'
ings of even $1 over the SI2OO
limit mean the withholding of
the beneficiary’s entire monthly
check. If his wife is also en
titled to benefits based on his
social security account, her
benefit is also withheld.
Beginning with 1961, a bene
ficiary who earns SI2OO or less:
will get his benefit payments for.
all 12 months of the year. A
beneficiary who earns more)
than SI2OO in a year will have
$1 of his benefits withheld for

MORE MONKEY BUSINESS:
Ham, the chimp who recently
made the trip into space, while
being interviewed by reporters
at a news conference, balked
; each $2 that he earns from SI2OO
up to SISOO. For every $1 that
! his earnings go above SISOO, $1
of benefits will be withheld.
Under the old law, many
beneficiaries received more in
1 total income (earnings plus
j benefits) if they limited their
| earnings to SI2OO a year. Un
| der the new law, this will no
longer be true. A beneficiary
| who earns over SI2OO in a year
will always receive more in I
combined earnings and benefits
than if he had earned SI2OO or
Also many eligible people who

amount to over S2OBO (and ordi
