FILING CLAIMS UNDER SOCIAL SECURITY ACT Relatives or estates of deceased workers who held social security account numbers should file their claims now for lump-sum payments to which they may be entitled under the Social Security Act, according to Peter J. Van Geyt, manager cf the Indianapolis field office of the Social Security Board. "If a worker covered by the old-age and survivors' insurance provisions of the Act dies before January 1, 1940. his relatives or estate are entitled to a single cash payment amounting to 32 per cent of the total wages credited to the worker's social security account. Until 1940. when the major revisions in the Act will become effective, there will be no change in the provisions for benefit payment to the heirs or estates of workers who have died," the manager explained. Mr. Van Gevt said each worker's Soma of the world's greatest statesmen and public figures are speaking out in favor of a "humane war." To poor, dim-witted mortals like me it seems incredible that intelligent men and women can conceive of a "humane war." They contend that scientific warfare has advanced to such a terrible state that we should return to the "civilized combat" of Charlemagne and Hannibal the humane kind where a man merely thrust his sword through an adversary's heart and watched him bleed to death. Personally, I prefer gas. I know what they are saying : War must be waged in the old way so the women and children will be spared. Has there ever been a war which spared women and children? Why became they widows and orphans if they were really spared? To speak of "humane warfare" is war is a good thing? It seems to me and this may be shocking that the best way to end war is to invent all the ter-roiizing gadgets and guns possible, to conjure up all the poison gases in existence, to mold out the most deadly shells and bombs. It may be that even the threat of using them on a world-wide scale will be enough. Maybe not; some of them may have to be used. But when the war is brought to our fireplaces and altars, our schoolrooms and stoies, it may be that we shall declare in unison that it must stop forever. The women may stop it even if the men have not enough sense. And they could. They, most of all, visualize the terror and suffering among non-combatants in modern war; it is not exactly a coincidence that 75 per cent or more of the gallery visitors at the Congressional neutrality debates are women. They How To Relieve Bronchitis Bronchitis, acute or chronic, is an Inflammatory condition of the mucous membranes lining the bronchial tubes. Creomulsion goes right to the seat of the trouble to loosen germ laden phlegm, increase secretion and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes. Tell your druggist to sell you ,a bottle of Creomulsion with the understanding that you are to like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to have your money back.

Perhaps I appear cynical, but why attempt to ease the effects of war? Why even attempt to spare the women and children? If man is to be eternally cursed by regular struggles which destroy the best men and all that the best men have built and thought, why bottle up the poison gas and muzzle the death ray? Would it not be better to use our most efficient methods to end civilization? Why prolong the pains of extermination? If, as many persons believe, war is an inevitable human heritage it is merely being merciful to end the so-called human race as quickly as possible. But I do not believe it is inevitable; why should I believe it is when I have never Carl New and Max Tucker, students in DePauw University, spent the week-end with Mr. New's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul New.

During the month of August 13.010 applications for these numbers were received in Indiana. Of these, the Indianapolis field office handled 3.707. "Our office is prepared at this time to issue account numbers, to receive requests for duplicates from workers who have lost their account-number cards, and to assist legal heirs of deceased workers file their claims for lump-sum settlements." Mr. VanGeyt said. The Social Security Board's field office in Indianapolis is directing the attention of all applicants for social security account number cards to a section in the amended Social Security Act making the di-closure of any information given by workers or employers illegal, according to a statement issued today by Field Office Manager Peter J. Van Geyt. Mr. Van Geyt stated that this is in line with special instructions recently sent to board representatives throughout the country by Jchn J. Corson, director of the board's bureau of old-age and survivors insurance. "This provision safeguarding the confidential nature of old-age and survivors records," Mr. Van Geyt explains, "puts in statutory form the policy adopted by the board scon after the insurance system was established. In the Social Security Board's -Regulation No. 1' workers were given the assurance that no personal information obtained from them or their employers, such as statements concerning their age, parentages, wages, or occupation, would be given to any one not connected with administration of the social security program. The revised law now makes the disclosure of such information a misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $1,000, or by a year's imprisonment, or by both " Mrs. P. S. Montrose and daughters Beverly and Rosiland were Sunday dinner guests of Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Low. to be able to save the world. As long as foolish men march in step to military airs a pretty sight, you will agree and march off to the trench-arenas; as long-as foolish men. jovial in one another's company, regard war as an inevitable adventure; as long as foolish men "go away" to battle, it shall be with us. But let war deposit our youngsters among the debris of the schoolroom, our women among the wreckage of our homes, and our hard-earned businesses among the smoking ruins of our town and we may come to our senses. Then, war will be stripped of its glamor and stand revealed for what it really it. What a pity we can't see, without all these things coming to pass.

We arc thinking only of Russia, not of humanity." The barbaric truth of this statement was shockingly realized by the recent mating of Red Russia and Brown Germany. The marriage, of course, was one of convenience; but it was Josef Stalin, not Hitler, who was the seducer. For was tne seoucer. for years Stalin had cast flirtatious eyes at Hitler, the one man in Europe he ' . Josef Stalin feared: had he not achieved power by the simple process of playing up to his enemies and then liquidating them in a moment of weakness ? It's the old Stalin game. "Stalin is striking for world-power deliberately, patiently, unscrupulously, as has always been his technique of success," WTites Eugene Lyons, Moscow correspondent for six years and first reporter to interview Stalin, in the November Cosmopolitan. "He plays with the vision of a Russian empire rather than a Utopian inter-nation (the ideal of the Russia of 1919). Its FOR SALE Popcorn, Yellow Giant, shelled, 3 pounds 25 cents. JOSEPH W.

The entente with the Third Reich was Stalin's greatest step in the direction of world domination, according to Lyons. Vulture-like he can stand by watching Europe kill itself off, then step in for the pickings. A long war is his great desire: there will be no strength left to resist him. In lusting for power, in their disdain of human life. Hitler and Mussolini are but mild imitations of the Russian strong-man. Stalin has no counterpart: whereas the. other dictators think of conquering thousands, he counts his victims in millions. It is a known fact that one of the Soviet concentration camps has more prisoners than all the Nazi camps put together. And, as a former Red Army officer says, "Not in four and a half years of World War did the officer corps of any army sustain such losses as the Soviet armed forces did in recent purges." America must become aware, warns Lyons, that no nation is interested in making the world safe for anything, whether it be democracy, Fascism, or Communism. Self-interest, and that alone, is the motivating force of a nation's behavior. Pacts are but scraps of paper. Honor is dead.
