THE GETTYSBURG TIMES, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1965 PAGE THREE MAIL HEALTH FORMS TO AGED FOR SIGNATURE Mailing of the If, 1 * million "Medicare" applications to Social Security and railroad retirement beneficiaries, which started September 1, is moving smoothly and all beneficiaries .should receive theirs by Decemlcr, Joseph S. Dickenson, Social Security district manager in Chambersburg, reported today. A booklet ex-plaining protection under the new hospital insurance plan and what additional supplementary protection is available under the voluntary medical insurance program is being sent along with the application. Mr. Dickenson cautioned beneficiaries not to become upset if they don't get their applications in the first few mailings. All will be mailed in plenty of time to be returned before March 31, the last day of the first general enrollment period. The mailings are being made on a regular schedule, based on the last digit of a beneficiary's claim number. This moans, he continued, that a husband and wife may receive ttheir applications at different times if the wife's benefits are based on her own work. Also, because of the scheduling, next door neighbors probably will get their applications at different times. Another problem that has arisen, Dickenson added, is that some husbands and wives are both signing the same enrollment card. Each beneficiary will get his own card in tine mail and should not use someone else's card. People who have questions about health insurance for the aged should get in touch with the Chambersburg Social Security district office located in Room 201, Chambersburg Trust Company Building.

Wedding Death Toll (Continued From Page 1) were murky with volcanic ash. The Red Cross reported 55,000 persons huddled in evacuation camps or along the roadsides. Most had fled from homes around the lake. Before the emotion, the vol -canic island 40 miles south of Manila was a garden spot of meadows, grain fields, thriving :arm villages and neat school- louses. Officials could give no istimate of the number of islanders who escaped. FAMILY DISAPPEARS One surviving islander, Juan Encarnacion, 35, said his wife and six children disappeared when the rain of fiery stone capsized their small outrigger boat. Encarnacion said he clung to a yard-long piece of wood as lava rained from the sky, the tiery flames of the volcano outlined the island and a thunderstorm set off by the eruption sent tentacles of lightning crackling about. He said he saw at least 20 loaded motorboats leave the island. Many of the women and children in the boats were hysterical, he said. Agoncillo, which had 10,000 inhabitants, was a ghost town. Its population was scattered among the evacuation camps hastily set up by the government. The eruption was the 19th in Taal's recorded history. The last was in 1911. Estimates of the dead in that eruption range from 1,335 to 3,000. The exact toll was never determined. Miss Pliylllft Loufaa Wulllck, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Denni.

YOUNG FARMER GROUP MEETS Intense research into new feeds and their use by ruminant animals continues constantly, Dr. Thomas Zeigler of Zeigler Brothers Feed Co., Gardners, told the Gettysburg Young Farmers' Association at its meeting Tuesday ivening in the agricultural room of Gettysburg High School. Dr. Zeigler, a specialist in animal nutrition, said: "Nutrition is not a haphazard thing today. !t is possible to know just what you are feeding and just what ·esults you will obtain from it." Each farm operation has different needs in regard to nutrition, Dr. Zeigler said. Use of urea in grain rations can cut down feed costs. "Corn is still king but alfalfa is also an excellent feed." A 15 percent gain in efficiency of :eed usage in beef can be obtained by using stilbestrol. In swine operations, Dr. Zeigler recommended that "sows be kept lean to produce bigger and better litters with less trouble." George Glenn, agricultural education teacher at Gettysburg High School and an advisor to the Young Farmers introduced Dr. Zeigler. Paul Waybright, a mem-ber of the local unit and a regional vice- president, announced the state Young Farmers' convention will be held November 17 at Pennsylvania State University. The delegates from the local unit will be selected at the October 28 meeting. It was announced thai the Outstanding Young Farmer nominee from the local chapter has been selected and the name forwarded to the state association. Biglerville Man Held For Court Clarence W.

Rose-Ann's Showing «f Fall Winter COATS N i x o n Says LBJ Needs Republicans LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP)-Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon suggests that the way to help President Johnson carry out his Viet Nam policies is to elect more Republicans to Congress. Nixon told the New York State Publishers Association Tuesday night that Johnson is under pressure from Democratic members of Congress to adopt a soft line in Southeast Asia. Republicans elected to Congress, Nixon said, "would support the President wherever he is right against the appeasers in his own party." Viet Cong (Continued From Page 1) was made. The action took place in the area of Phu Cu Pass, where the Viet Cong suffered heavy losses in a battle last week. 2 RED ATTACKS Two Communist battalions launched a two-pronged attack Tuesday against the Vietnamese troops from the east and west while two other battalions struck from the southwest. U.S. intelligence sources have said the Viet Cong have begun a buildup in Binh Dinh Province, in which Qui Nhon is located. Top Vietnamese military officers said earlier in the week they believed that North Vietnamese troops arc operating in the province. Meanwhile, U.S. paratroopers Tuesday night ended the longest operation of the war involving American troops, in the dense D zone brush and jun gles near Ben Cat, 30 miles north of Saigon. Vietnamese, New Zealand and Australian contingents also took part in the two-week sweep, which sought to wrest the initiative from Communist guerrillas in an area they have long dominated. Addis Ababa became the capital of Ethiopia in 1893. Attention ELKS! And Ladies Hud-shell CRABS Wednesday Nighi All You Can Eat While They Last Storting Time)-7 P.M. RELATIONSHIP (Continued From Page 1) consider all potential results." Wingert and William M. Carroll, extension agricultural economist in public affairs, were the special speakers at Tuesday evening's course. CITES FOREST PROBLEMS "One of the problems or management of forest resources is that most of the wood.s are owned by private individuals who have an average of less than 40 acres each in their possession," Carroll said. "Forests can provide recreation. They also can provide a place for the 'tar paper shack and the old bus body used as a cabin'.' The speakers said townships should seek to upgrade the type of cabin put in the woods, "because what is the tax base on a tar paper shack or an old bus?" Such shacks "keep the better summer home from developing -the one that you want to increase in your township. The shack also leads to a downgrading of care for an area." Jesse Nalle, instructor for the course, spoke on population growth and said: "Between each census all of us are guessing on the population of our areas. We at the planning board can project what populations can be. We can estimate that Adams grown from 51,906 in 1960 to 79,479 by 1980 and the odds are that we will be fairly close. But this does not help you in your township or borough. The county's population may increase -- while your township decreases. One of the principal things you must consider in your planning is the population growth or decline and whether it is an older or younger population? You need these answers. If your population is growing older you need no increase in schools -- if it is made up mostly of young marrieds -start planning for more schools now!" SQROPTIMISTS (Continued From Page 1) 8 p m.
