KNOW YOUR SOQAL SECURITV ~
. John T. Groom*, representative of the Social Security
Administration, is in Edenton every Thursday at the North
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the
Citizens Bank Building.
Some self-employed farmers
are either overlooking, or not
taking advantage of, an oppor
tunity to provide a protection
fcr themselves and their fami
nes that could be nriost valu
able to them; that is, social se
curity protection against loss of
income because of retirement,
disability, or death.
To the young farmer, age 65
is a long way off and he may
not be immediately concerned
about any special provision
whereby he can secure social se
curity credits for his work. Al
though it is definitely <to his
advantage at age 65 to have se
cured credits for every year, he
should especially not overlook
the advisability of providing
protection for himself if he
Should become disabled or for
his family in case of his death.
He should bear in mind that so
cial security payments are only
made when the worker has the
required amount of work for
such payments. The amount of
Work required depends on when
the worker reaches retirement
age, becomes disabled, or dies.

receives proper credit for his
work is file complete and ac
curate income tax returns and !
use the optional method of re- j
porting self-employment income
from farming when it is to his
advantage to do so. ' This op-|
tion allows any self-employed
farmer who has a gross profit
from farming of SIBOO or less to
declare two-thirds of his gross
profit as net profit for social
security purposes. However, if
he is engaged in farming only,
his gross profit would have to
be as much as $600.00 for him
to secure social security credits
by use of this option. If his
gross profit was over SIBOO.OO
and his net less than $1200.00
'he may report $1200.00 for so
cial security purposes. This op
tional method of reporting may
be applied even though lie had
a net loss from his farming op
eration and may mean the dif
ference in receiving four so
cial security credits or none.

In tha small nation of Laos our
position is less secure despite
the fact that since 1954 we ‘have,
poured some S3OO millions into
military and economic aid for
this country to prevent it from
slipping behind the Iron Cur
tain. There are several reasons

tor this.. First, there is a com
placency about the peril by the
Laotian leadership which the
U. S. is backing- Secondly, the
supply lines of the Soviets and
their allies are shorter. A Soviet
airlift from Hanoi, North Viet
nam, a few hundred miles away
can drop thousands of rebels into
Laos quickly. Lastly, by being
the “behind the scenes” aggres
sor, the Soviets can pick the
time and the place for these
“brush fire” wars.
War And Peaca —This nation
is ardently striving for peace,
but at the same time is con
fronted with the alternative of
war. The Soviet leaders seem
to understand far better when
we state to them that we wiil
not yield another inch of terri
tory than they do when we sit
down with them to discuss dis
armament. Since this condition
exists and we must live with
it or perish by it, our imperative
need is for a mobile, well-equip
ped “brush fire” army which
is ready to fight at a moment's
notice in the most remote pro
vince of the world.
Conditions For Peace While
we seek peace and make plans
for world disarmament, we must
realize that the conditions for
peace and disarmament must
exist among the world powers.
One of the great tragedies of
World War II has been the fact
that two of our great allies, the
Soviet Union and China, have
turned into aggressor nations.
If they had continued to join
with us, in the ideals of peace
as they did in the strategies of
war, the world would have mov
ed toward the “broad and sun
lit” areas of lasting peace. Six
teen years after the armistice
of World War II it is not enough
for the representatives of the
United States to be willing to
disarm, to reduce our armies,
and to stop all armament re
search and testing. The disarm
ament envoys of the Soviet Un
ion and Red China and all na
tions must be men whose minds
and hearts are dedicated to
peace. Peace is cultivated in
the hearts of men who can in-
