Proposed (CONTENOZD FROM PAGE ONE) ville, told commissioners a super highway through their valley would end farming there. He said the narrow valley bottom is the backbone of the cattle farming in the area. The farmer can use the hillsides part of the year to give the bottom a rest period, but without bottomland the farmers are finished, Gunman said. A super highway through the valley would not only take a large portion of this valuable bottom but the blasting and excavation could change the flow of underground water, Gunman said. "This is delicate country." Most of the farmers in the area are dependent on springs for their water. Guhman said that officials in the area are not considering the needs of agriculture.

Riley assured Guhman tha the plans have not been com pleted and urged him and th others to attend the schedule! public hearings.

Some Widows To Gel Increased 5S Benefits "The 1972 amended Social Security Act provided for increased social security benefits to some widows," Sam J. Matt: hews, social security district manager, stated today. '· Matthews stressed the new law has had no effect on the b e n e f i t s received b y many widows. In explaining the new law, he said "only those widows who first received benefits at age 65 and whose husbands first received benefits at age 65 would get 100 per cent of the husband's primary benefit." The new law provides benefit rates varying from slightly over 70 per "cent to 100 per cent. If a widow starts benefits at age GO she will receive 71.5 per cent. If she starts at age 62 it will be 82.0 per cent. Only those whose widows' payments started at age 65 will have the possibility of a 100 per cent rate Matthews emphasized. A l l w i d o w s currently receiving benefits have had their accounts, examined for possible increases. Any increase in benefits due was automatic, effective for the month of January 1973 and was paid in : February. D e t a i l s concerning t h e amended law can be obtained from your social security office. Southgate Shopping Center, Fayettevilla CANVAS SHOES Boston Store Open Daily Till 9 P.M.
