-- August 10,1975 Sunefav Gasetie-Moi T rfc*rta«t»n 'AAtt ViftViAla-- Social Security Act Becomes 40 This Week WASHINGTON (AP) -- Forty years ago this week the Social Security Act became law, offering financial protection for the first time to millions of aged, jobless and impoverished Americans. The debate over the sweeping social welfare program, a cornerstone of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal, still rages. In signing the act into law on Aug. 14.1934, Roosevelt said that for the first time it promised some security against startling industrialization changes. The nation was in the midst of the Great Depression and 11 million persons were out of work. "Young people had come to wonder what would be their lot when they came to'old age. The man with a job has wondered how long the job would last." Roosevelt said. "We can never insure 100 per cent of the population against 100 per cent of the hazards and vicissitudes of life," Roosevelt said. "But we have tried to frame a law which will give some measure of protection to the average citizen and to his family against the loss of a job and against poverty-stricken old age." * * * THE SOCIAL SECURITY Act established the federal-state unemployment insurance system, Social Security pensions for retired workers, child welfare, maternal and child health programs and benefits for crippled children and the blind. All of the programs have been expanded over the years. In Social Security, for example, the 255,000 beneficiaries who began drawing benefits in 1940 have swelled to 31.1 million retired workers, disabled adults, widows and minor children. The child welfare program, which later became the Aid to Families With Dependent Children program, now provides about $8 billion in cash benefits each year to more than 11 million poor adults and children. About 50 of the charter Social Security beneficiaries are still alive, the government said. The oldest is Charlie Smith of Lakeland, Fla., a former slave who celebrated his 134th birthday last July 4. The Medicare program for Social Security beneficiaries was added in 1965 and now covers 23.6 million persons for hospital care and 21.2 million for physicians' medical care. Prostitution Tax Lien Paid Off WHEELING. W.Va. (AP) - A Wheeling woman convicted of prostitution related activity paid a $142,000 federal tax lien on a Wheeling house, tax records show. Isabel Prince, 50, was named in the lien filed by the Internal Revenue Service. Tax records show the lien was removed last month. The lien was based on what the IRS claimed was income received during, 1973 from illegal prostitution activities at the house. The woman was found guilty last month in Florida of interstate travel involving prostitution. Court records say she is appealing the conviction and is free on $5,000 bond. Also named in an $138,000 IRS tax lien was Alma Bruce, for income allegedly received during the same period at the same house. COGS Expands Social Work Staff Carole R.
