But the contest director says she broke her contract and race was not a (actor. The argument broke out Mon- flay night and about the only ihlng the disputants agreed on s that there will be no Miss New York State for this year. Miss Jon, 24, who lives in Manhattan, won the state con;est May 20. She was the first Negro to win the title. She was among 15 finalists in ;he Miss USA competition to Dick a winner for the Miss Universe title last month at Miami Beach. + * * Ted Marshall, contest director who owns the New York franchise in the Miss U.S.A. and Miss Universe contests, said "there's nothing racial here at all." He confirmed the title had been taken from Miss Jon, but said "it's strictly contractual." In a letter to the 5-foot-5 beauty, he told her: "You have not fulfilled, nor seemed to have the spirit to fulfill the obligations you took on when you personally signed the official entry form of Miss Universe and the official contract of the New York State Beauty Pageant." Marshall said Miss Jon had failed to show up for personal appearances he had arranged. He also said she violated her contract by appearing in adver- Medicare and Social Security: 1 Benefits of Medicare-Social Security Bill Are Explained By JOHN TROAN NEA Special Writer (First of a Series.) You are richer than you realize. As a worker, you have in the files of Social Security headquarters an account In your name which may be worth- right now—more than a $123,000 estate. For instance, if you should die and leave a growing family, your widow and children may be able to collect up to $300.20 a month In Social Security benefits. Likewise, if you should become disabled or If you still have young children when you retire, you could collect maximum family benefits of $300.20 a month. This is equal to a three per cent annual return on a capital investment (or bank account) of $123,700. Furthermore, this income is guaranteed. It is risk-proof. And it is tax-free. Even if your family Is grown when you retire, you and your wife may collect as much as $203.90 a month. This is equal to an annual income of three per cent on an investment of more quired by accident or disease. Visits by part-time nurses and other health personnel to a patient's home under conditi o n s not covered by the basic Medicare plan. Up to $250 worth of psychiatric care a year outside a hospital. Various other health benefi t s not provided by Medicare, including diagnostic tests outsi d e a hospital, ambulance servi c e. artificial limbs, and rental of medical equipment (such as a wheelchair). * * * With supplemental insurance, the subscriber will have to pay the first $50 of his medical expenses each year and one-fifth of the rest. The insurance will cover the balance. In addition, the Social Securi ty law contains special provisions concerning free health benefits for persons who aren't drawing welfare checks but are too poor to pay their medical bills. This is known as the Kerr-Mills program.
