Prisoners set fire lo six buildings in the prison simultaneously but the fire spread to all but four of the prison's 13 buildings in a multi-million dollar blaze. (DPI Unifax) '< > robing of Stockpile Continues WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sene investigators, sought today to read their .way through a "barn 11 of red tape" blocking-disposal surplus materials from the na- onal strategic stockpile.. Sen. Stuart Symington's armed rvices subcommittee called wit-' esses from the General Services dministration and the Office of mergency Planning to discuss roposals : for expediting surplus iles. Despite streamlined disposal •ocedures-issued by the^Kenney administration April 25, sales om the stockpile this year will mount to only a small fraction ' the $3.4 billion worth, of sur- uses on hand. Under law proposed sales of all Kcept obsolescent stockpile', ma- irials require specific approval / Congress. Even then, sales annot begin until six months aft- r the details are published in the ederal register. A joint Senate-House resolution jproved by Symington's subcom- nittee last week would authorize elling $60 million worth of ma- rials over dhe next five years. But the amount to be sold un- er the resolution represents less ian 5 per cent of existing sur- uses. Plans to dispose of an ad- ilional $600 to $800 million worth re being drafted by the admin- fration. Witnesses 'before the subcommittee have indicated that it ould take decades to sell 'the most heavily overbought metals nd minerals. One official said IB 78-million-pound tobalt sur- lus could not be moved in less ian 20 years without disrupting roducers' markets. PRISON FIRE—Several of the buildings inside St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary continued to burn late Sunday after they were set on fire by several hundred rioting convicts. Unconfirm- ed reports said some of the inmates were killed in the rioting and scores were injured. (UPI Unifax) The Problem Of Federal Checks Nearly everyone likes a large, green check—say about 3!4 inches by 7%ths, especially if it has your name on it and was issued by the U. S. Treasury Department. Seventeen million social security beneficiaries receive these checks every month, and it is inevitable that some difficulty is met in delivering this number of checks to the proper individuals. While there have been instances of lost and stolen checks, the beneficiary himself is responsible for most cases of non-receipt. One common cause of delay is a .change of address filed too late to reach the Treasury office before the check is mailed. Because of the large number of checks, the actual printing begins •early in the month. As the checks are printed, they are filed in their envelopes according to the individual's claim number. As these millions of checks accumulate during the month, individual checks are extracted and addresses changed as necessary, !but there comes a time when the check files must be moved to the Post Office and further changes ! cannot be made. This varies depending on the day of the week, but is about the 26th or 27th of the month. Any address change received in the Treasury after that day cannot be substituted for the old address and the check goes.out bearing the old address. If it is returned, the new address is entered anc the check remailed immediately, but three or four days are lost.in this process. Next to the late address changes, the most common cause for delay is the receipt of a notice rom a beneficiary which does not show his claim number. Since all records and all checks are iled by this number, the beneficiary's record cannot be located without it and the notice must be returned to him for that important claim number. Because of the large number of U. S. Treasury Department checks that are now issued, they are very negotiable and should receive the same care as an equal amount of cash. Never endorse your check until you are ready to cash it and if you want to cash it where you are not known, don't be surprised if you are asked for identification. The individual cashing your check is trying to protect you when he verifies that you 'are the person for whom the payment is intended. If you are responsible for cashing U. S, Treasury checks, always insist on identification unless you personally, know the payee. Although social security checks are usually received on the fourth day of the month, the government does not guarantee delivery on 'any specific day, so your check could be received a day or two later. If you haven't received il by the sixth of the month, though, you should promptly report thai fact to your social security office. Some folks will always like stripes and -some polka dots, bul everyone likes that big, green check. Social Security Answers QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Q.
