State Ph. 380 Navy to Hold Examination for College Work The navy announced recently that the 4th nation-wide competitive examination for its college training program has been scheduled for Dec. 3, 1949, and will be open to high school seniors or graduates within the age requirements. Successful candidates will be given a 4-year college education at government expense and will be commissioned as officers of the navy or marine corps upon graduation. The program is open to male citizens of the United States between the ages of 17 and 21, and quotas have been assigned to each state and territory on the basis of its high school population. Those who are successful in passing the aptitude test will be interviewed and given physical examinations; then, if they are found in all respects qualified, their names will be submitted to state anci territorial selection committees composed of prominent citizens and naval officers. The navy expects to enter about 2,000 students into the program commencing with the fall term of college, 1950. The students selected by these competitive examinations will be assigned to the 52 naval reserve officer's training corps units which are located in various universities and colleges in the United States. If accepted by the college, they will be appointed midshipmen,, U. S. N. R., and will have their tuition, books, and normal fees paid for by the government. In addition they will receive pay at the rate of $50 a month for the 4-year period. Upon graduation they may be commissioned as officers in the regular navy or marine corps and required to serve on active duty for 2 years. At the end of this time they may apply for retention in the regular navy or marine corps, or transfer to the reserve and return to civilian life. Applications are available at high schools, colleges, offices of naval officer procurement, and navy recruiting stations. Harold J. Snyder, principal of Mason City high school, who is acting as the navy's local civilian representative, Will be pleased to provide specific information about the program, including the time and place of the competitive examination, the method of making application, and the specific age and scholastic qualifications. Mail Overseas Parcels From Oct. J5-Nov. 75 As In former years Christmas mail destined for overseas military personnel should be mailed between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15, it was announced by Postmaster Fred A. Cahalan. The postmaster said that the local postoffice has received notice that the U. S. postoffice department in co-operation with several departments of the national military establishments has completed arrangements for the acceptance of Christmas parcels for members of the armed forces serving outside the continental U. S. during the period designated. "Parcels should be indorsed 'Christmas Parcel' and the importance of mailing Christmas parcels during this period cannot be emphasized too strongly," Cahalan said. Parcels destined for Japan, Korea and the islands in the Pacific should be mailed as early as possible, preferably not later than Nov.. 1 in view of the distances involved, he said. Parcels for navy and marine personnel serving in the most remote areas -hould be mailed not later than Oct. 15. Christmas greeting cards to overseas personnel must be sent in sealed envelopes and prepaid at the first class rate. Parcels for overseas transmission should be of strongly constructed, boxes carefully wrapped, because of the distance, handling and storage they must undergo. The boxes should be completely filled and thoroughly packed. Hi-Y Groups Begin Year's Meetings The senior Hi-Y group met Monday night in its regular meeting and heard a talk by the Rev. A. N. Rogness while the junior Hi-; Y group was scheduled to meet Tuesday night at 7:30 at the Y. M. C. A. to elect officers for the coming year.

Accepts Position Nashua—Marvin Horn, who has ; been linotype operator for the, j Nashua Reporter for the past year and a half, has accepted a position with the Wavorly Democrat and moved there with his family Sunday. No Limit to Income With Security Pay Questions he had been asked in working over his territory as Social Security administrator here, were answered by John R. Goldman on the KGLO Forum hour. Among these was one: "How much of our money out of the trust fund do you pay KGLO for your broadcast?" Goldman's answer was that the station donates its time and facilities as a public service to its listeners for the broadcast. He added that H ""years ago nearly one claimant out of every 10 lost one or more monthly checks because he did not know how the Social Security act fit him. Today this loss has decreased to something like one in every 30 claim-s ants. One question which he said was asked over and over again in slightly different ways was brought up by the speaker. Samples he gave were: "Can I receive my retirement check and run my own little grocery store? Car. I re- ceive my retirement check and] raise chickens for sale? Sell stuff out of my garden? Make a garden for my neighbor? Keep my neighbors' yards cleaned off and mowed? Take in boarders or roomers? Receive rent from an extra house I own? Run my own barber shop?" A young widow with some small children wanted to know if she could take in washings and ironings or be a baby sitter, Goldman said. The answer to all of these is "yes," he stressed. There is no limit to income that one can have, and still receive social security insurance—provided the income is not from working in jobs covered by social security.
