Here is the rule: Add up the wages a worker received from jobs covered by the law from the time it went into effect [January 1, 1937) up to the beginning of the calendar quarter in which he dies or becomes eligible for retirement benefits. Then divide this .ota.} amount of wages by the number of months in that same period of time.
