Government Sets Up Insurance Plan For Rail Workers Under a new 1 system financed through taxes paid-by the railroads under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, railroad employes in this area will be eligible' for sickness benefits effective July 1, Claims for sickness benefits will cover periods of 14 consecutive days after the seven-day waiting period. Depending upon the earnings of an employe, the sickness benefits will range for $12.25 to $35.00 for the first 14 clay period and from $17.50 Lo $60 for each subsequent full 14 day period.' The maximum that any worker can draw In a benefit year ranges from $227.50 to $060. Under this plan, railroad emplo- yes will become one of the first groups In the nation to be insured under a government plan against loss of wages from temporary disability, according to P. W. McCoy, field representative of the Railroad Retirement Board. The benefits will not be paid to those .who continue to receive their regular wages, vacation pay, or pay for lost time, nor if the employe receives unemployment insurance benefits, sickness, maternity, or'un- employment compensation . under some other plan.

'-:· : V-'^ i'-lVVifj $89efr*h' vitf !£7# \i m' :' ± kSt'-V A ^Mt ff SoN of Man, whenever I doubt of life I think of Thee." So wrote George Matheson in his blindness. Whenever you and I doubt either God or man, we should do well to think of Jesus. His Cross js a symbol both of what God is and what we may become. The proud Roman at the foot of the cross was compelled to say, "This man was a Son of God." JESUS was supremely a man of faith . . , knowing what; was in both man and God he had great faith in both. We have faith in God largely because we must have Him; we are not sufficient unto ourselves. Faith v can overcome the most miserable circumstances , . , overcome despair. LlFE becomes a radiant thinff for people of faith, since they see deeper into the secret:? of life. The universe opens its heart to eyes of f a i t h ; closed doors swing, ajar when faithful steps approach; loving spirits smile their welcome to trustworthy souls; laten powers blossom in the presence of fidelity; young children 'and wise old age give themselves with abandon to those who offer them confidence; God waits to shower His blessings on men-who trusted. Of the Pilgrims of yesterday, guided by the Divine, it was said, "They were MEN OF FAITH AND VJ3RY SURE OF GOD." /; 1"0£; Iff *HB £rr * or '°^r^^ "^^^^^r^saSf Copvrijtlx 19-i 7 ly W i l l i n t n s Kowsp.ipcr IVniui Boa ·»' I Ji l : ort Worth, Tcx THIS SERIES OF CHURCH ADVERTISEMENTS SPONSORED Bf THE FOLLOWING BUSINESS FIRMS Mclnnis FLOWER SHOP Say It With Flowers ,,,,, * * · .^ MANSKE Nash Sales dc Service 1 ' * * * *""" La Perla Bakery \ Surprise Bread Compliments SHAPIRO'S SHOE STORE --. * * * --~ Null's R.G.V.
