For the first time Britain w a s showing open impatience with the couple's -.teady dating in the face of stony silence in official quarters on whether they wish to marry. Referring to. the- throne, the Manchester Guardian declared in an editorial: "Olympus, we may as well admit, has been shaken " Weatherhead heads the largest Protestant denomination in Britain outside the Church of England, which has strongly reaffirmed its opposition to the marriage of divorced persons through its primate, the Archbishop of Canterbury. Some of the wide support for the Margaret - Townsend match ap- I peared to be giving way to second I thoughts as the constitutional and religious implications were debated in public. The Manchester Guardian had already given its support to the marriage and even made the almost unheard-of suggestion that in a modern democracy. Townsend. a commoner, had just as much right as someone of royal blood to be a queen's consort. The Guardian criticized sensational press coverage of the affair but admitted that "the royal f a m - ily's 'public relations' have been very bady mishandled and that a great deal of the unpleasant invasion of personal privacy has come because of the inepitude of the royal advisers." interview with I'nited I'rcs- "A farm program v h - u i l d not -rrve I'.uti^.in | x i i t u . c l purposes "Yet a determined -f!rt i im dcru.ty to paint tin- picture black T Ulan it ieali i- Noi Helping I'Ji raers "Sonie p o l i t i c i a n s arc not helping tanners nuioh by their coin ments."

"How much can I earn and get all my Social Security payments?" is the most frequent question a.sked by persons of retirement age. according to E Bishop Hill, district manager of the Harrisburg Social Security office. Many employers call with the same question, so advice can be given to their employees who work part time Anyone who is 72 years of age or over can receive benefits for all months regardless of how much is earned For the worker who is under age 72. earnings for the entire year must be considered If the earnings are $1200 or less r.uyment can be made for all months. Where earnings exceed $1200. one month's benefit must be withheld for each $80 or fraction of $80 over the $1200 For ex ample, a man who earned $1281 m a year and worked all months would have 10 months benefits pay able The first additional $80 would eliminate one payment and the $1 would eliminate the second One who works in all months and earns over $2080 will receive no payments for the year On the ·itlier hand, benefits are payable for all months in which no more t h a n $80 is earned regardless of total yearly earnings "Old-age or survivor beneficiaries who earn $1200 a year or less ·r who became 72 years old before February of this year, need not concern themselves with the re tirement test," Mr Hill said, "but 'or all others a complete under standing is very important." The best way to get that understanding, he suggested, is to visit the Social Security District office. Those who cannot "conveniently call in person, may request Fact Sheet No .'t by mail To Discontinue So/e Of Gor«rnment-Owne«f Corn to Cxporters WASHINGTON ilP-The Agricul ture Department said today it tern : porarily will discontinue sale of government-owned corn to export · or* as soon as outstanding commitments have been fulfilled The government now is moving 10 million bushels -of corn from midweatern storage bins to the £ast Coast to fulfill export orders ''As soon as that is done," a Commodity Credit Corp official laid, "we will stop sale of govern- i ·nent corn to exporters for the i time being " ; The official said the government ' would halt export sales of its stor- j *d corn so as not to interfere with sale of corn now being harvested Three or four light applications f paint on buildings is better th*n ·re thick coat. GOP Legislator Blasts Benson Farm Program BROOKIXGS. S D U^--The Senate Agriculture committee A as greeted today by a new blast at the Eisenhower administration's farm program from a Republican farmer-legislator State Sen. Harold ijolseth of Erwin. S. I) . v.ho i« also vice president of the state Farmer's Union, told the committee in a prepared statement. "We are definitely opposed to any type of sliding scale price supports." That was a reference to the administration's flexible farm program under which five major crops are .supported this year between 82 1-2 and 90 per cent of the "fail- income" parity level The range next year will be 75-90 per cent. Golseth also delivered what his friends conceded was intended as a slap at GOP Agriculture Secretary E2ra T. Benson He said the administration of uny farm program is as important as the program itself Urges Rigid Supports The r.OP legislator testified at the fourth of a series of "'grass roots" hearings mapped by the committee to gather advice from .farmers before writing a new f a r m ibill next year Another session is scheduled Friday at Minot. N. D Oolseth urged the senators to approve a House-passed bill restoring the old Democratic program of rigid. 90 per cent of par ity for the family furm or ranch " (;lseth. like nearly all of 15o farmer witnesses intervu-.vpd liy the committee in three previous Midwest hearings this week, also endorsed a g o v e r n m e n t land rental piogram Such a program umild provide ferteral ' r e n t " subsidies to farmers who put surplus-producing crop land into uras.ies or other conservation crop.s under contract with the government Harrisburg I Hi. 34. .South of tiurtebar* TONIGHT --FRIDAY --AND-- i Tk« B* at Red Rircr Ak^rn Firat Wffl UZZLE'S at The Big Store on Route 45, has an outstanding array of beautiful furniture.
