SI0350 Would Be Maximum (Under the bill the maximum combined pension for an over-65 couple would be around $103 50, figured this way: A '•maximum of $69 lor him, plus one-half, or $34.50, for his wife.) The widow — under present law the widow or a pensioned worker who dies gets her pension raised from Ver regular pension of one-half Iris pension to three-quarters of hLs pension— If she's 65 or over. (The bill 'would leave that unchanged but adds this: At the lime of his death the over-65 widow additionally would get .a lump-sum payment equal to her husband's pension for three months.) If a pensioned worker's widow is under 65 she gets no pension herself until she reaches 65 under present law.

Suppose a covered worker dies before reaching the pension age of 65. What happens to his widow if she's under 65? She'll get: 1. No pension until she reaches 65 but then she'll get a pension equal to threerquarters of what his pension would have been. 2. But she does get at the" time of his death the same payment a pensioned worker's widow gets—both under the law and under the new bill. . «•> Widows, Children Frottctcil ~ The Widow with Dependent Children—-. If a covered worker dies, before or after 65, and leaves a widow with one or more children under 18 years of age, then— Under present law she gets the lump-sum payment, plus three- quarters of her husband's pension rate, plus one-halt his pension rate for each child under 18. The payment for each child stops as each reaches 18. If the widow is under 65 when the last child reaches 18. the three-quarters payment .to her stops until she reaches 65. Then she gelE it again. Unrler present law such a family of widow and minor children, no matter how many children, can re ceive no more than a total ol SB4 , month. (The bill would raise th<- msximum for such a family to S15C f ^i long as the children were undei •j Tliat ilSO is a maximum figure Most such families would receive less than that.) vjnaer present irnv ,ir a covered worker dies before 'or after reaching 65 and leaves no minor children or widow but has parents dependent on him, each parent gets one-half his penion rate.

Hall quoted the letter as sayinp In part: "I'm terribly sorry to do this to you and Harry (believed by police to be his son), but it's better that it happens' now when you both arc young and beautiful, rather than spend your youth, beauty and devotion on someone like me. "Believe me. Honey, I'm not doing this because of anything you have done or" haven't done. I love you ° ot h terribly. That's why I'm doing "I've lived with this thought for years. . ,'.

"That's what I've wanted and wanted. Now I'm going to have it. "This way honey, with my life, fin stopping the wreckingvof three lives. One neurotic lite for two normal, happy beautiful ones is a cheap price to pay." The letter urged his wife to "stay In the country" and not return to England.
