The social security act was the topic discussed by Mrs. C, E. Dakin at the current events luncheon of the Business and Professional Women's club Thursday afternoon at the Cerro Gordo hotel. "The social security act was born out of the depression," Mrs. Dakin said. "It was realized that something must be done for the old, the unemployed and the afflicted and the bill was introduced after a period of study by a committee. Special Session, "Most of the work of the act will be done through the states and each state must have its own social security legislation which must be approved by the federal government. The Iowa legislature will meet in special session to enact its social security laws." Mrs. Dakin told of the setup provided for the administration of the act and said that Iowa is in region eight with headquarters at Minneapolis and Frank Wilcox as director. She said that taxes are paid both by employer and em- ploye to the federal treasury and that the amount of tax paid cannot be deducted from the income tax. "There is a long list of persons who are not eligible to participate in the social security act, among them farmers, domestic workers and employes of the government," Mrs. Dakin said. Answers Questions. Concluding her talk, Mrs. Daldn answered a number of questions -concerning the act, among them how the retirement benefit plan differs from the old age assistance plan, how long a person must be employed to participate in the provisions, when the payments begin and the like. She spoke of the vast amount of bookkeeping which will be necessary to set the act in motion and said that it will probably be I changed many times as experi-' ence indicates what parts of the I act are workable and what parts | are not. Miss Mabel Sucher, education chairman of the club, presided at the meeting.
