ENGINEER' ' PRESIDENT OF FOREST PARK LIONS CLUB ACTIVE IN LITTLE LEAGUE AND SCOUTING PROGRAMS MEETING-TUESDAY, MARCH 3Oth-7:3O p.m. Residence at 1123 S. Circle Ave., Forest Park Social Security Increase Checks June 3rd First checks to Include the new 10 percent monthly benefit increase authorized in legislation acted upon this week by Congress will reach 26 million Social Security beneficiaries on June 3. Robert M. Ball, Commissioner of Social Security, said that the regular June 3 checks cover- ing benefits for the month of May will reflect the new higher monthly amount. Separate checks, scheduled to reach beneficiaries later in June will cover the amount of the increase for the months of January through April. Ball emphasized that Social Security beneficiaries do not need to get in touch with a Social Security office to get the checks. The payments will be mailed to bene- ficialres automatically. "It will take a little over one month" Ball said, "to refigure the benefit amounts for all beneficiaries, including the adjustment to take account of events that have affected their individ- ual benefit payments for a particular month in the retroactive period. Over 2.5 million such adjustments are required in a typical month," he said,, "for such reasons as the death of a beneficiary, the remarriage of a widow, a child's attainment of age 18, a beneficiary's earnings, etc. .-.-V Electric self-cleaning ovens don't just clean the oven. They clean the broiler, too. Somebody has to clean (hat dumb broiler when it nets all gunked up with grease. And we thought it would be nice if it weren't you. So inside every electric self-cleaning oven, you'll find a sell-cleaning broiler. Built together, right i" the same compartment. So every time you turn the oven dial to self-clean, you automatically clean the broiler, too. Without gloves, and rags, and ammonia. Without sprays and soaps. Without bending, scraping and scrubbing for hours on your hands and knees. Because we think that's something you can live without. <) C.K.C-O.

ByS.f!yS»»w A DEAR SALLY: My girl friend and I are about to announce our engagement, but now she is objecting to my Idea of giving her my late mother's engagement ring. Although this is a very beautiful and costly diamond, and she admits this, she says she would be very uncomfortable wearing another woman's ring. Don't you think her reasoning is silly, and what can I do about it? STYMIED. DEAR STYMIED; In answer to your first question, no. The engagement ring is one of the most important and significant gifts a woman receives from a man —. which makes your girl's objections logical. You can solve your little problem very easily, however, simply by having that beautiful diamond reset. Then the' ring will really be new, and I'm sure you'll have a happy fiancee. DEAR SALLY: I'm a married woman of 33 and worried sick about my kid brother, a 25-year old bachelor. He Is chasing around with a divorcee with an unsavory reputation, and he Is spending a mint of money on her. I know for sure she is going with him just for what she can get out of him. Pve tried hard to counsel him about this, but he refuses to listen. So, is there any other way I can put some sense into his head? BIS SISTER. DEAR BIG SISTER: You've had your say . . now stay out of It and stop worrying about your brother. At 25, he Is NOT a "Kid," and his life is his to live as he wishes. DEAR SALLY: I've beenmar- rled for several months to a widower with a 14-year old son who lives with us. He is a very nice boy, and he and I get along perfectly, but the thing that bothers me very much is the fact that my husband and Inever seem to go out anywhere without the boy . . . to movies, to concerts, to country club dances, to dinners, and even on week-end trips. My husband is a wonderful man, affectionate, devoted, and kind to me — if only he realized that once In awhile I would love going out with him alone, just the two of us! Please advise me. THREE'S A CROWD. DEAR THREE'S: How about telling your husband just what you have told me? Maybe he'll flattered over the knowledge that you want him alone . . . and will do something about it. DEAR SALLY: I'm a girl of 18 and live with my widowed mother, who is only 39 and very attractive. My big problem is a certain middleaged man she has been dating, and who is showing more than a passing interest In me. He keeps suggesting that we date sometime on the sly. I don't want to have a thing to do with this middle-aged wolf -- but he is persistent. I also hate the idea of his doing things like this behind Mom's back. Do you think I should tell her what he's doing? I've held back up to now, because I know she likes the guy very much and I'm sure such news would hurt her. TO TELL OR NOT. DEAR TELL: Better, I think, not to tell Mom, and only hope that she will learn for herself very soon the kind of cad she has been dating. Better this way than . if you were the one to hurt her.
