DrSchollsZinopads What three farmers told us about their Telephone Service "It means a lotto ut to be able to talk with our children «ven though they are mll« away a n d * a n * come to see usvery often. railroads would increase as the system continues, under the following schedule: 2% per cent for 1937, 1938 and 1D39; 2% per cent for 1940, 1941 and 1942; 3 per cent for 1943, 1944 and 1945; 3% per cent for 1346, 1947 and 1948; 3% per cent after Dec. 31, 1948. Pica by President. Conferences leading to' the agreement followed a plea for an agreement made' by President Roosevelt last fall. ' A statement described the system as follows: "There is no compulsory retirement age in the act, but any em- ploye who continues to work be T yond the age of G5 will receive no credit for service after 65. "If a man has 30 years of ser-. vice and has reached the age of 60, he may retire, but in that case there is a cutback of one-fifteenth for each year the employe is under 65. "Persons who are totally disabled are :eligible to retire if they have completed 30 years .of'·'. service. A n y - m a n who reaches 65 may retire and secure an annuity based on his years of service even though he is-not in railroad service when he reaches the age of 65." No Court Challenge. · Harrison said the agreement eliminated the likelihood of a court challenge of the new system's-con- sUtutionality. The worker's annuity is determined by multiplying the years of his service by a percentage of his monthly pay.
