KNOW YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY
John T. Grooms, representative of the Social Security
Administration, is in Edenlon every Thursday at the North
Carolina Employment Security Commission office in the
Citizens Bank Building.
In my last article on the 1961
amendments to the Social Se
curity uaw, I described the in
crease in the the Social Security
benefits payable to aged widows
and widowers and to certain
aged dependent parents.
In this article, I would like
to tell you about another group
whose Social Security benefits
are raised. They are the 2,175,-
000 persons who now receive
Social Security benefits at or
near the minimum level of $33
The change raises the mini
mum level to S4O a month. Un
der the new law, the lowest
benefit payable to a worker who
retired at 65 or later will be
S4O, beginning with the checks
mailed early in September. 1961.

technical, they add up to the finest piece of combining
equipment that ever harvested a peanut crop. Come

Your skin can get older than

geous suntan year after year, do
so at the expense of skin that
may get wrinkled, dry and dis
colored before its time. That's
what too much sun can do to'
Aside from the fun and re- 1
laxation of it, nothing about
toasting in the sun is especially
good for you. However, people
will continue to seek a sun
bronzed skin so . . .
—Remember sunburn is a hue
burn that can really make you
—Don’t spend more than twen
ty minutes in the sun the first
—lncrease your sunning time
—Use a suntan lotion or cream
while you are getting your
tan. Put on more lotion or
cream whenever you come out
of the water and renew it ev
ery two hours.
—Don’t be fooled by a cloudy
day. The burning sun rays
come right through.
—The sun is strongest for about
two hours before and after
—You get more of a bum at the
beach than in the country be
cause sunlight reflects from
water and sand. But you can
still get a burn midst the
greenery, so better observe
that twenty minute limit first
tripe out, wherever you are.
Nothing save divine power is
capable of doing so much for
man as he can do for himself.

blunt our sense of propriety, and
loosen our inner controls. Or
with the same amount we can
buy the Bible, thus making
available for ourselves the wis
dom that leads to righteousness
and joy. With our money we
can pamper ourselves with some
unneeded comfort, or we can be
a partner with Christ in his
work. Dorcas was honored be
cause she served others wi#h
the means that she had. What
we gain to use only for our
selves never makes us truly
rich. We can see the proof of
this anywhere we care to look,
beginning even with ourselves.
So, says Jesus, in effect, “Do
you want to become rich? Then
try giving yourself away.” This
is what Dorcas did.
Our Lord recognized the im
portance of getting, if one is to
live; but he emphasized also
that blessedness the greatest
joy of life —comes only as we
relate getting to .giving. It is
only as we emulate the exam
ples of persons like Dorcas that
we become truly rich. And, of
course, the Supreme Example is
Jesus himself. Although he died
at thirty-three, he was the rich

was rich in heart and mind, rich

If we truly want to become
rich we must try giving our

must try spending our lives for
values that are eternal. We
must invest ourselves in deeds
