Six Lettermen Lost to Scots MONMOUTH—Robert Tucker, a 5-foot 10-inch halfback who was selected for the second all-Midwest Conference defensive team last season, will be team captain for the 1963 Monmouth College varsity football team. Tucker was elected squad leader by his teammates at a meeting Tuesday night. Missing from the squad this year will be six lettermen out with injuries and scholastic ineligibility. Edward Prince of Havana, first-string quarterback last season, will be unable to play this fall due to a knee injury suffered dining the summer. Steve Ellis, senior center from Rochclle, will also be lost to the team this year with an ankle injury. Scholastically ineligible are Michael Lafferty, a junior letterman from Sterling; Robert Dob- kowsld, a junior letterman from Posen; Steven Freeburg, a junior letterman from Glenview, and Stanley Wherry of Aledo, a senior letterman.

Twenty-five candidates have reported for practice to date, and head football coach Joe Pelisek expects two more men to report this weekend. Towboat Ties Record for Barge Total The towboat Coal King this week tied the record for the number of barges through the Mississippi River locks in this area. With 11 empty barges and six loaded with 7,200 tons of grain, the Coal King went downstream through Lock 18 near Gladstone Sunday, bound for St. Louis. The record of 17 was set in 1957 by the R.S. Rhea and probably won't be topped because the towboat and 17 barges fill the lock chamber twice, requiring a double locking, Army engineers reported. Making its first trip on the Upper Mississippi this week was the Bayou Lafitte with two barges of asphalt from Wood River for St. Paul. The 480-h.p. towboat was built in New Orleans in 1951. A new weekly traffic record was established at the Rock Island lock last week with 371,150 tons, the engineers reported. The cargo was aboard 56 towboats pushing 172 barges upbound and 173 downbound. Previous record for a week was last June, when the tonnage totaled 355,515. MARRIAGE LICENSE MONMOUTH-One marriage license was issued Friday to James Stotler, Little York and Peggy Lundeen, Monmouth. Youth-Camp Accidents Mostly Happen to Adults By ROBERT GOLDENSTEIN Medical Association, covered 1,CHICAGO (AP)-It's the adult counsellors, not the kids, who have the most accidents at summer camps. A medical team which conducted an eight-week survey of accidental injuries at three northeastern camps reported today "a remarkably low accident rate among the campers with a contrasting high rate among the staff." "This was considered to be due in part to the increased supervisory and staff responsibilities, combined with a desire to 'keep up' with the younger, more energetic campers," their report said. The study, appearing in the current Archives of Environmental Health, published by the American A New More Effective Answer to Arthritis and Rheumatism Pains Parkay Tab ]«i» is a medicine designed to give you reliei from Arthritis, Rheumatism, bursitis, stiff joints, muscular pains.

It showed the highest rate of counsellor accidents occurred at an upper New York state Boy Scout camp where a staff of 50 was in charge of 915 campers. The rate of counsellor accidents also exceeded the rate of camper accidents at a private camp for both boys and girls on the southeastern coast of Massachusetts. But at the third camp, for boys only, in the New Hampshire foothills where 23 staff members supervised 53 campers, the accident rate was highest among the children. The survey produced these other interesting findings: 1. The more experienced camper? and staff suffered more frequent, serious injuries than the inexperienced. 1.

Introductory size 434 14 years of age incurred a somewhat higher injury rate than all other campers. The study showed a total of 296 accidents, most of them minor. Only 2 per cent of the accidents required medical or surgical care beyond first aid procedures applied by medical personnel at the camps. There were no fatalities. Impacts with objects caused 42 per cent of all accidents, falls 23 per cent, cuts 22 per cent, burns 7 per cent and other means 6 per cent. Midday, Danger Time Injuries occurred to the children most often just before the noon meal or in midafternoon. Injuries among the counsellors, however, occurred more frequently later in the day and on weekends. The study was reported by Dr. Roger J. Meyer, Burlington, Vt., Anne K. Kibrick, R.N., Dr. Sidney Kibrick, Mary P. Ryan, R.N., and Rose Godbout, R.N., of Boston, and Dr. Edwin Brown, Medford, Mass. Discussing accident prevention measures, they said: "Despite widespread 'accident prevention' information, those with most knowledge and understanding—particularly the staff- seemed to have the highest injury rate. For example, the safety director of one camp warned a staff member of a hazardous and avoidable circumstance, only to be injured himself in the same manner shortly thereafter." •' Attorney at Canton Will Become Banker CANTON—Former Fulton County state's attorney, Blaine Ramsey has announced he will accept a post of trust officer with the Corn Belt Bank in Bloomington Ramsey, who has practiced law in Canton since 1951, expects to leave Canton early next year.

Baby-Sitters, Maids Are on Social Security; Some Employers Delay During the past year, almost 21,000 "delinquent" household employers were required to make back re ports of wages they had paid to cleaning women, maids, and other household help after their employes, or ex-employes, applied for social security benefits. Based on the average of $1,000 in wages covered by these delinquent reports, the Internal Revenue Service will be collecting about $1,200,000 in back social security taxes from these 21,000 employers, plus interest and penalty, said Arthur H. Hutchison, social security manager in the Galesburg district. Since the law holds the employer responsible for making the reports and paying the social security taxes due, the delinquent employer is liable for paying both the employer's and the employe's share of the back taxes. There is no time limit if no report was filed, Hutchison pointed out. About 18% million men, women, and children are now receiving social security benefits each month, Hutchison said, and about million persons apply for old- age, survivors, or disability bene fits each year. The average household worker therefore probably knows someone who is getting social security payments and is thus ikely to file a claim when she reaches retirement age or has to stop working because of disability. If wages she has earned in household work covered by the social security law have not been reported to her social security account, the employer will be required, first, to make the report of wages, and second, to pay the delinquent taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. A delinquent employer may also be discovered if the employe at any time asks the Social Security Administration for a statement of the earnings credited to her social security account and READ THE WANT ADS1 DR.

Based on $50 in 3 Months A householder worker who is paid $50 or more cash wages over a 3-month period by any employer is covered by social security. This means that the employer must report her wages and pay the social security taxes due—3-% per cent she has deducted from the em­ ploye's wages, and 3-% per cent out of her own pocket. Since there are 13 weeks in each 3-month calendar quarter of the year, a household worker who is paid as little as $4 each week will have cash wages totalling more than $50 in a calendar quarter, Hutchison pointed out, and by law, those wages must be reported. This situation often applies to the family's "baby-sitter." Household employers make their social security reports on a special simplified form printed on the inside of a self-mailer envelope. An employer can get on the mailing list to receive the brm every three months by writing to the District Director of Internal Revenue in Springfield, 111., or by asking the nearest social security district office for a copy of the booklet, "Social Security and Your Household Em­ ploye." This little booklet of information for household employers contains a postcard the employer can send to the District Director of Internal Revenue to get on the mailing list for the report forms. The reports and social security tax payments are due within one month after the end of a calendar quarter. Reports of wages paid to household help in July, August, and September must be made on or before Oct. 31, for example. Household workers who would like to know more about social security should get in touch with the nearest social security district office. In Galesburg the district office is located at 200 Bondi Building. There is a booklet for them, too, called, "Good News for Household Workers." The free booklet explains in simple language and pictures what social security coverage means to a household worker and what she needs to do to be sure that she is getting the social security credit due her.
