One of the bugaboos that blight
a columnist’s life, especially on

then find that some other fel-j

probably wrote it better. That

John T. Grooms, representative of the Social Security ;
Administration, is in Ldenlon every Thursday at the No..h
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the ]
Citizens Bank Building. j
The new amendments to the
Social Security Law, signed by
President Kennedy last week,
give men early benefit rights
similar to those women have had
The change applies to men
between sixty-two and sixty-five
years of age, and is designed
especially to help those who are
unable to find employment be
cause of their age or poor
A man now sixty-two to sixty
five years of age can start re
ceiving benefits with the month
of August, 1961. But if he re
tires before he reaches age
sixty-five, the monthly amount
of benefit paid to him is re
duced. He will continue to be
paid the reduced amount even
after he reashes sixty-five.
Dependent widowers and the
dependent fathers of workers
who have died also can get
benefits at age sixty-two. Their
benefits, like those of widows
and dependent mothers, are not
For men who retire early, the |
amount by which their benefits
will be reduced depends on the 1
number of months for which
they will receive benefits while
still under sixty-five. A worker
who retires and claims his bene
fits as soon as he reaches sixty
two will qualify for eighty per
cent ■of the amount that would
be payable to him at age sixty
fjve based on his average earn
ings up until his retirement. If
he waits until he is sixty-three,
he will get eighty-six and two
thirds per cent of his full bene
fit; and if he waits until sixty
four, the amount will be ninety
three and one-third per cent.
The reductions are figured so
that a person may expect to re
ceive, on the average, about the
same amount if he takes reduced
benefits beginning before he is
sixty-five, or waits until sixty
Members of. the immediate
family of a retired worker can
get dependents’ benefits if the
worker retires at sixty-two or
if he waits. Eligible dependents
include a wife sixty-two or old
er, or a wife at any age if she
has in her care children who
are eligible ' for benefits. The
child of a retired worker is eli
gible if he is rinder age eighteen
or if he has 'been totally dis
abled since childhood.

the Senate, in recommending

Morgan The Pirate was one
!of the most completely disap
pointing movies I have ever
seen. As movies go, the picture
was not altogether bad, but as
a portrayal of the sweeping epic
of Sir Henry Morgan, it was a
dismal failure. The story of a

i now and then, with his deeds of
j daring and imagination, has

But Morgan The Pirate was
nothing but an action-packed

sixty-two for men will help to
alleviate the hardships faced by
that group of men who, be
