been to war. Only two years old
when the War Between the States
broke out and was a "trifle too
young" for that one. By 1898 when
the Spanish-American War broke
out he smiled and cracked that he
was "too old or too ugly can't re
member which." '.
He clerked in a general store
inrina World War I and of course,
during the most recent unpleasant- ,
ness had to be content with sitting
back and contributing a small army
Mr, Register lives about a mile
sunt of here with a daughter, Mrs.
Mattie B. Knowles. Despite his be
ing almost 90 years of age the dis
tinguished appearing six-footer still
has normal hearing and can see
pretty well out of his one good eye.
He has been blind in the other eye
sidce boyhood when he got a piece
of pine bark lodged In it. He re
members very well the day when he
found out the sight was gone from
that eye. He was out squirrel hunt
ing and couldn't see down the gun
barrell to aim.
The well known local man was
born hi Sampson County near In
gold. His family moved to Duplin
permanently in 1901 and settled
here on the homesteaa now owneu
by Mrs. Knowles, one of his ten
children, with whom he lives.
Perhaps another distinction the
nonogenarian might be credited
with his large number of direct
descendents. His lineal descendents
number 171. This number includes
10 children, four grandchildren and
87 great- grandchildren. His oldest
child, James, Is 66, and the young
est, Preston, 43.
Mr. Register is still very active.
He says he feels kind of persecuted
because he isn't allowed to do much
fM k around the house.

and occasionally Dring up waiei.

Later he drifted through success

His main occupation has been farm
His pet hobby always has been
fishing and like all fishermen he
has his choice "fish story." His is
about a trout (bass) he once caught
in Long Creek that weighed "five

Mr. Register, who. uses a vari
ation of the old Indian system of
keeping time by association of hap
penings with events, recalls very
well the day when his sister was
born. He climbed an apple tree
that was partly blown down and a
hornet stung him. Must nave maae

very little about it .He does recall
the day when his paralyzed father

Yes, You May
Get Social Security
Each week the Social Security
Administration receives telephone
calls and letters asking who may
be entitled to benefits under the
Old-Age and Survivors Insurance
Provisions of the Social Security
Act. A letter recently read: "My
husband retired from his regular
job because he was 65, and since
that time has been getting a small
pension from his employer. We are
finding it hard to live on this pen
sion and I wonder if we could
drav his Social Security benefits
now." The reply was that his pen
sion would have nothing to do with
any benefits payable under the
Old-age insurance program. In the
case cited, the man and his wife
lost money because they delayed in
notifying their field office. The
Social Security Act provides for
only 3 months back payments from
the month the claim is filed.
As the letter was from a wife,
let's see what s wife must do to get
her benefits started .First, her hus
band must be at least 65 and re
ceived benefits himself. The wife
must also be 65 and must file an
application for her benefits just as
her husband. No one can do this for

her and her payments cannot be
gin until an application has been
tiled. She must furn-sh proof of
her age, but no: necessarily a birth
re t.ficate. Th?n are several types
of ncceptabli pro fs such as an eld
rv.crd in a Family Bible, insurance
policies and others. Many times
persons have acceptable proof of
age and do not know it. They will
be assisted in getting proof, if nec
essary. A wife's benefit is one-half the
amount of her husband's benefit.
For example, if her husband la re
ceiving $32 a month she will re
ceive one-half of that amount or $16
and the two will receive a total of
$48 each month. The wife will con
tinue to receive her check as long
as her husband receives his.
