Can a person who has lived most of his life in, the United States, but is not a citizen, draw Social Security benefits? A. Citizenship is not a requirement for drawing Social Security benefits. An alien who works in tills country long enough to be insured under Social Security is eligible to receive benefits when hr reaches j retirement age f65 for men, 62 ; j for women) or is disabled. The j i maximum number of years any- j ' one needs to work under So- j j cial Security to be fully insured i ' is 10, provided full credit .is'' given for all 10 years. However, a problem might a-' rise if an alien left 1he country. There are special rules that apply for paying Social Security benefits to non- citizens outside the United States. —Illinois State Bar Association i Hollywood.

He DO YOU WANT THE REAL TRUTH FROM CITY HALL? The City Manager gave the City Council an estimated corporate cost for services to the Summersvilie Area of $15,607.00, a drastic reduction from estimates previously furnished by the City Manager. We have compared previous estimate, item for item, with latest estimate and have spent considerable time trying to arrive at an accurate figure. Our investigation leads us to believe that the first year cost to city residents would be $43,210.00. We intended to discuss these figures with the City Manager but he did not attend the last two regular meetings, and we were advised from his office that the informal meeting Nov. 25 of the council had been cancelled. We have on hand, the Managers 1967 estimate for garbage collection showing cost of $3,000.00 for the entire area, however, the latest petition covers more than half the original area and the estimate for garbage collection has shrunk to $797.00. Fiction? You be the judge. Previously it had been pointed out that the Water Users of Mt. Vernon now have a second lien against their Water System. This is for more than $300.000,00 and is a result of running the sewer trunk line through the Summersvilie area to the proposed "Industrial Park". If we continue to put second mortgages against our water system then it will be practically impossible to ever furnish water to our users at a reduced rate. What the Mayor is asking the Water Users of Mt. Vernon to do is to subsidize a sewer system for the area. We were elected to represent the taxpayers of Mt. Vernon and not to serve as a dummy for a ventroquilist Mayor. He apparently has others who are ready and willing to serve him in that capacity. The Mayor has asked us to vote for annexation which could only cost the present taxpayers and water users many additional dollars per year. What constructive programs have they proposed to help the present sections of our City? Example: In the area of Bell Street. Reverend Jackson has repeatedly led delegations to the council, but he has always been given the same story "NOT ENOUGH MONEY". Annexation of the Summersvilie area would only lessen the amount of money available to solve the problems of these areas that are already part of the City and are entitled to all City Services. In July 1967 the City Attorney sent a memorandum to the City Manager outlining a plan based on the municipal code that would allow sewer service to be extended to the Summersvilie area without annexation to the City saving them many a tax dollar. The Mayor now says it is against City Policy. We believe' that the Mayor should explain to the taxpayers and residents of our city why some people have both water and sewer services but are not in the present City Limits and have not made petition for annexation. Other Mayor Martin "policies" will be discussed at a later date. We feel it is our duty to take a stand on behalf of the taxpayers and Water Users of the City of Mt. Vernon. We were elected to serve on the City Council as their representative. We believe the hour is late but that the time is here when elected representatives should start representing the people that elected them. This is what we intend to do. Even though the News Media indicates that everyone is in favor of subsidizing a sewer system for the area we ask that you determine this by one simple test. Most of the Water Users of Mt. Vernon have already helped pay for twu sewer systems, and disposal plants. Go to any of them and ask them if they are now ready to assume the added responsibility of helping to pay for a new system for the Summersvilie area. We believe you will find the true answer.
