MANY REGISTERING AT LOCAL OFFICE Between 1200 and 1400 Enrolled for Unemployment Funds Between 1,200 and 1,400 unemployed or partially unemployed men have registered or have re-registered during the last two weeks at the National Hepinployment office on the second floor of the K. of P. Building, IS West Franklin Street, Brewer U Stonffer, local director, announced Friday. They may file claims after the first of the year for unemployment insurance benefits, he said. So many of those who plan to file claims apparently have forgotten or have mislaid their social security numbers which they must have before, filing their claims, Mr. Stouffer said. They are advised to go to the Social Security office, 5th floor of the Grand Building here, if they do not have their social security number. By si. diiing they can save time in filing claims. James Sleasman, claim agent for the Unemployment Compensation Board, is preparing to receive (hese claims at the KeempJoyment oflice. Persons who may file claims are those wholly or partially unemployed, who have been employed by firms contributing to the compensation fund, who have worked approximately eight weeks during the first three-fourths of 1937, and whose employment has been ended through no fault of their own. Contributing firms :nclude industries and most, classes of employment, although there are certain exemptions, such as farmers and government agencies. The highest period of unemployment for which compensation may be received is 16 weeks, and then it is only in case he does not get a job in the meantime. The Old And The New Dec. 31, 1937.
