In releasing these figures today, Edgar W. Lelien, manager of the Alton social security office, also said that these monthly payments under the old-age survivors insurance program amounted to $274,119 in this area. "Without these payments earned by workers under this contributory system, the ability of many people to pay for necessities would have been drastically curtailed or entirely ended," he said. More than one-third of all people over 65 in the United States who could not count on income from work for support, were getting social security insurance benefits. About 5799 persons over age 65 in the six counties were receiving these payments. It was pointed out that this Federal program is affording substantial survivor insurance protection. n 'UR services are available at whatever price the family wishes to pay. The price is determined by the selection made in our display rooms where complete prices are marked in plain figures. • LTOB . »•« VOOOIIMWI THIS WEEK ONLY FRIENDSHIP WEEK IB and 30 Denier, 51 Gauge Regular $1.35 $< .09 3 Pairs $3, 1 5 U Denier. 60 Gauge, No Twist Regular $1.50 .19 $4 .IS Ji 3 Pairs $3,45 15 Denier, 60 Gauge 40 Turns — Also Regular $1.65 and $1.S5 $1*33 X 3 Pairs $3,85 NYLON HOSIERY SALE A Tradition For 29 Years. 10.S WE5T THIRD ST.
