Thousands of others have--*o Uncle Sam is set up to replace any lost in dice games, chewed up by goats, "lifted" by pickpockets md 'just disappeared." "It's all part of the social security board's -work," Michael J. Shortlcy, manager of the Philadelphia office, explained. That "work" includes paying claims at the rate of two a minute to workmen throughout the Nation who have reached 65 years of nge. A spokesman for the board disclosed there is plenty of humor in the "lost card" department. He paid one man appeared recently at a western state office nnd asked for the social security benefits for "these 21 cards." The man said ho had won them in a dice game--the other pl.iycrs "shot" their social security cards after their funds \\eie exhausted. "Of rinir'C under the Government's filing system it would be impossible for anyone to .secure benefit on any claim but his own," Shortley s.ild. "Pcoj-le who loso their cjids make nil kinds of excuses when they ask for n now one." the district manager snid. HP recalled that one applicant reported "a goat Me my caid," and hundreds of prople explain their "pockets were picked." If Hit- applicant has the number of his card it's only :\ five-minute job to give him a new one. If not. the application must be sent to the central ofllce at Baltimore where permanent files arc kept. "It is important that every workman have a social security numbor whether or not he is employed," Shortley snid, adding: "Sometimes a prospective employer wants a workman immediately and if lie doesn't have a card--well, he may get passed up for the man who already has one."
