' With nn eye to Oiw eventuality, a conference of Doukhotjors in tlic West Kooteimys recently decided tnnt all their children must be given equal selirollng- In Russian and English. Spokesmen for the Doukhobors said the plan was a precaution against the day when they might have to return to Russia, whence they emigrated at the turn of the century to escape religious persecution. Seel leaders said they hcped Peter Veregin III, heir-designate to the mitre of Peter Veiegfn II, eventually would be able to come to Canada from h!s Russian exile. They, said thai "international complications" had prevented his coming, and that if he did not ocme, the Doukhobors of British Columbia would join him in Russia. At the conference it was decided (hat births in the community should be registered in conformity with the regulations of the provincial government.

Nov. 22. — A major change in the federal social security program goes into effect on Jan. l, During the coming year more than 900.GOO men, wcmen and chil- approximately dren will 5114,000,000 receive in old age insurance , I benefits. They will be paid on a far more liberal scale than was planned when Ihe act was passed in 1935. Last session, Congress broadened the act both as to the people who may get benefits and the amount of benefits. Money that will now out during the year is only a stnrter. By the end cf 1944, the Social Security Board estimates, benefits of $2,093,000,000 will have been paid— lit billion more than would have ben paid if the act had not been amended. IMPORTANT CHANGES SIMIMARIZED Briefly summarized, here are the Important changes that are about to go into effect: „ Benefits a wage earner niny receive are to be based on his average wage rather than on his total contribution vin the payroll tax. This means higher benefits for older workers, and for lower-paid workers. 2. Families of insured workers may now draw benefits. Not only does the insured worker begin to draw benefits when he reaches 65; benefits will also go to his wife when she reaches Gs, and there arc supplementary benefits for his dependent children. 3. If a worker dies, his survivors may draw monthly benefits instead of a Hat lump sum. 4. Many workers who became 65 after the act went Into effect, and who thereupon received a small lump sum payment and then went out of social security coverage altogether, may now get back in and qualify fcr regular, life-time monthly benefit payments. 5. Payment of benefits has been advanced two years, from 1042 to 1940. Other sections of the act have been liberalized.

Currently these costs are running slightly '•?low 5 per cent, One more important change was made in the law by the last Congress—a negative one, postponing a prospective increase in taxes TAX INCREASE CANCELED Tlie old age retirement insurance program is financed by paj roll taxes of 1 per cent on the worker and 1 per cent en the employer. These were to have risen to 1U- per cent each in 1340, but that increase has been canceled at an estimated saving to the two groups of taxpayers of some $215, 000,000 in the coming year. At tilts same time, the reserve Account..set i;p under the original plan — which was to have grown to a gigantic revolving fund— has been dene away with, and a simple insurance trust fund has been set up in its place. Samplc Cases John Smith is pas't G5, the retirement age. If he has been work ing regularly since 193G. in one of the occupations covered by the act, at an average wage of $100 o month, he can retire on 525.15 a monlh for life. If he has a wife, also 05, slic can get $12.88 n month If he dies, she can get $19.31 a month for life. « • * Bill Jones was 25 on Jan. 1, 1937, when (he Social Security Act went into effect. If he stays on the job in n covered Industry drawing $100 a month, he can retire at 65 on $35 a month; and his wife, at 60 can collect $17.50. Joe Brown has been- working for three years in a covered Inthislrj at $100 a month. lie dies, leaving a wife and two small children. His v.'ife can collect three-fourths of the monthly benefit he would have been entitled lo plus an additional sum equal to one-half of his benefit for each minor ciimi. I n this case, his benefit would be $25.75 his widow, then, can collect $1031 a nicnth, plus $12.88 for each of her children. She and her two children, thus, would be receiving $45.07 a month. If there were no children, Mrs married but was tin was supporting lils father and mother, both over 05 month apiece for tl,e rest of their lives. .--— •*..,., vim, ullu Ul- lor Ihe complete line of parade nns jmssec], Stcele, Mo., Goodfellows club is (lie first out-of-town crganiznllon to enter a unit In Ihe civics club division of the parade, Chairman Harper staling ihey hnd notified him they would place the "Sadie Hawkins" chaiacler.s- In the imradc The Lincoln highway (s than 3300 miles long.
