KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY
John T. Grooms, representative of the Social Security ;
Administration, is in Edenton every Thursday at the North j
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the j
- Citizens Bank Building.
’ In my first article on the new
Amendments to the Social Se-!
curity Law, I described the pro
vision which gives men the op
tion to retire between 62 and
65 with reduced 'benefits.
In today’s article, I want to ■
cover another important change
in the law —the one which re-!
duces the length of time a per- ’
son needs to have worked under
Social Security to get retirement
benefits for himself or to quali
fy his family for survivors
benefits in case of his death.
Some 160,000 older people will
become eligible for cash benefits
because of his change in the
law—older men and women
workers, their wives or depend
ent husbands and the widows,

This new-fangled “reading dy-'
namics” I’ve been reading and;
hearing about, by which a per- 1
son is enabled to read a novel,
or any book or bit of writing j
Dy hardly no more than glancing,
at it, seems to me would take
all the joy and pleasure out of
reading. I like to stay with a I
book long enough to get the feel
and mood of it, to absorb its
atmosphere and take time to
really know the people of the
story—even become one of ’em
myself. Just to leisurely sort 1
of browse through the pages and
visit with them. I like to know
a book like knowing a person;
, dependent widowers and aged
| dependent parents of workers
who have died. First payments
to newly eligible persons can be
1 made for the month of August,
1 ! Under the new law, a man
■ reaching 65, or a woman reach- 1
! ing 62, this year will need So-!
cial Security credit for only
■ years of work under Social Se
. curity. instead of the present!
requirement of 3Vi years. A
: man who reached 65, or a wo
i man who reached 62, before
1958 needs only a year and a
; half of work under Social Se
. curity to be eligible for Social
Security Retirement Benefits.
The survivors of workers who
died before 1958 may also be-
' none of this “hello, goodbye”
1 j stuff for me. The only praq-
I tical value of this “dynamics”
. reading, as I see it, would be
;| to greatly assist one in factual
; reading, research and where a
1 minimum of reading time is re
■ quired. But give me an easy
[ chair, an interesting book and
just let me relax. And for good
ness sake don’t rush me. Now—
i if this “dynamics” caper wants
■ to make a hit with me, just let
' it show me how to read a galley
. proof at a glance—then we’d
be getting somewhere.
No compromise with communism!
come eligible for benefits under
this change in the law if the
| worker before his death had <
earned Social Security credit for
; at least a year and a half.
I should point out that credit
for work under Social Security
| is counted in three-month “cal-
I endar quarters”. Therefore, a
person need not have worked for
a continuous period of 2’/a or
! l'/2 years, as the case may be.
Social Security credit for calen
dar quarters earned at any time
since 1936 can be counted to
■ ward the amount of work he
| needs to get retirement benefits
for himself or to qualify his
family for dependents or sur-
I vivors benefits.
If you believe that you or
someone in your family may
now be eligible for benefits be
cause of this change in the law,
get in touch with your Social
Security Office promptly.
You may have inquired soon
after the law was changed by
Congress in September, 1960.
But do so again; this is a new
change that makes it possible for
people to get benefits with even
less credit for work covered by
Social Security. As before, how
no*e». can become en
titled to benefits with a total
of less than a year and a half
of work in employment or self
employment covered by Social

Peanut Situation In
Area Is Reviewed
Heavy Rains In Brief
Time Is Affecting
The peanut producing areas of,
North Carolina have experienced
extremely heavy rains in the
last two weeks. The total vol
ume of water is probably no
greater than experienced’ in past
years, but in many areas up to
four or five inches of rain have
been experienced within a mat
ter of a few hours. These types
of rains have a tendency to wash
out the land plaster which has
been applied to the peanut crop.
Since land plaster is a high, sol
uble material, excessive rains
which we have experienced will
cause the land plaster to dis
solve and run off or either leach
out —at least, leach away from
the fruiting zone of the peanut
plant. Consequently, when the
pids begin forming, the calcium
applied with land plaster is not
present. The method of two ap
plications of land plaster has
been generally recommended as
an insurance against just such
conditions which we have ex
perienced with the heavy rains

recently. If one application of i
land plaster was made prior to!
the rains, it is a pretty safe bet |
that the plaster is gone and a
second application snould be ap
plied in order that adequate cal
cium is present to make the
crop. At least 400 pounds of
plaster should be applied dur
ing the last half of July, de
pending on the age of the pea
nuts. This is one of the best
insurance features that can be
done at the present time. It
has been reported that Southern
Stem Rot is showing up in some!
fields, too, which is earlier than|
normal. If Stem Rot has been!
observed in past years on the 1
farm-, it would be highly advis
able to check the peanut fields
very carefully and if Stem Rot
is showing up, it might be well
to use terraclor in the second
application of the land plaster
to help control the Stem Rot
organism. Terraclor has proven
to be quite effective in the con
trol of Stem Rot, but due to its
high cost one should be sure
that the Stem .Rot problem is
present in his field before de
ciding to use terraclor. Farm
