It has been estimated that 1,250.000 boys will be affected by the change, with that many eight-year- old boys added to the Boy Scouts annually. H will also expand the program to phases of scouting more ink-resting to the older scouts. Toft is Critical Df Democratic Tactics in Senate WASHINGTON, Aug. 1J.

This Is the advice of Lem E. Bradford, manager of the Jones- horo office of the Social Security Administration, in reminding workers of this free service of his agency. "Wt- urge all workers to check at Intervals on their accounts," Bradford explained, "so that they may be sure of receiving credit for all wages they earn. We take every precaution to insure the accuracy of our records but faulty reporting by employers rtill causes trouble. Most errors on reports are due to mistakes In ttio worker's name or account number of the failure to show any number. Sometimes the wrong amount of wages Is reported and occasionally no report at all Is marie." Bradford added that there is no •lurgc for furnishing wage state- nents and that any worker can ob- airt one easily. For the convenience of wage earners all social security offices stock a self addressed postal card which can be completed very asily. Use of this card insures that all the necessary information to identify hh account is furnished by the inquirer. Requests should be mailed to the Social Security Administration in Jonesboro. ham, that," Bin^ham or something His clothes are worn, like but cleaned anct neatly pressed. He carried no suitcase.
