In restitution to Foote, she gave a mortgage on her station wagon which was driven to Cresco by Foote who had accompanied Sheriff Haven to Bismarck. Additional Social Security Numbers Mean Grief—Goldman Two heads are better than one, says the proverb, but the social security administration points out that 2 social security numbers, like too many cooks, may spoil the broth.

Goldman, manager of the Mason office, said City social security Wednesday. , Only wagesljposted to the account of the worker involved are considered when a claim is filed. Unless the applicant can furnish a record of all account numbers he has used, some wages on which he has paid social security taxes won't be counted. Goldman said that every effort is made to combine all the worker's accounts. Even so, in many cases, the amount of benefit is July II, 1MB 17, Ma*on City Gl»b«-GM«tt«, Mti«n City, U. W.
