Wilmington, Nov. 29. ? The f
steadily increasing number of 11
lump-sum cash payments under j ^
the Social Security Act indicates |e
that claimants are becoming a' e
little better informed as to their
rights. There are still many thousands
of people entitled to claims, f
who have not yet filed, however, 1
Mr. George W. Jeffrey, said to- 1
Up to November 15, 2,051 e
claims have been certified for c
payment in Region IV, which r
comprises North Carolina, the
District of Columbia, Maryland,
Virginia and West Virginia. Total
claims received up to November
15, 1937, was 2,864 and 3,134 up s
to November 22, which indicates 0

privileges under the Federal oldige
insurance provisions of the ^
Social Security Act. In the State
if North Carolina 473 claims a
had been certified for payment j
up to November 15, 1937. ^
The average amount of the
payment has also increased, Mr.
Jeffrey stated. During the month jif
October the average amount t
if lump-sum payments, under (|
the old-age insurance provisions
if the Social Security Act was
524.04 in this Region as compared
with 818.03 in September, j,
rhe average for the country as ],
i whole was $26.40. The method n
jf making claim for these pay- p
nents is very simple, Mr. Jeffrey u
raid. Field Offices of the Social );
Security Board will contact pros- c
jective claimants, when it is in- ]j
heated that they may be eligi- ti
jle for a benefit, and explain and f;

At that time, the attending tl

The young father, Robert E. ft

ather has been too grief-stricken ?

But the nurses at the hospital n
lave adopted Martha for the ?
lame of the little girl, already P
he hospital "pet". Martha was .
:he name of the baby's mother,
,vho died Tuesday night of an ^
icute cardiac condition. ~ J
Physicians said the chances of ^
ife for the baby increased hourly.
It is rare, they said, for a \
baby born under such circum- j
stances to live more than a few 'i
minutes. They recalled the case ~x
of a baby born under like con- i
liitions in Philadelphia last sum- 2
mer, who, because it lived 46 j
hours, attracted wide attention. "
The baby, a month and a half ?
premature, weighed three pounds i
and 12 ounces at birth. Today )
she weighs only three pounds and
nine ounces but physicians said ;
this was natural. 2
Martha is a very exclusive :
baby. She sees no visitors except 1
her nurse and her doctor. Dr. "i
Jasper Hunt. She can swallow
food, but so inefficiently that ]
four times a day it becomes "
necessary to insert a tube thr- *,
ough her mouth into her stomach j
by which she takes four ounces
of liquid nourishment.
