'* Une «'?? pIoyment insurance pay is for the person who is out of work ( through no fault of his i S AI Mana ger Jim Mathews « eAteona office of the Iowa State Employment Service, "and he worker who quits his job of his own accord and without good ause attnbutal to his employer s just (out of luck, so far as un- Mnployment insurance payment? re concerned," he said. In recent months. Malhews said, many a worker has quit his job without good cause, then when he did not find other work he came to the employment office to claim unemployment insurance. "Naturally," Mathews explain- d, such a claim cannot be al- owed. Persons who have an idea i quitting work and then expect- ng a check each week from the ate unemployment insurance unng a period of idleness, would e wise to know what he is ab;ut efore taking such a step," lie dded. Funds to pay unemploymen claims is contributed by employers to be used to protect workers who are laid off because of work If an employee quits his job of his own initiative he cannot qualify for unemployment compensation. "However," Mathews explain ed, if a worker quits for the sole purpose of caring for some member of his immediate family who is sick or injured and as soon as he reasonably can he returns to his job but finds that his place has been filled and there is no work for him, his claim for unemployment insurance may be approved. Or, in case a worker quits a job to accept better em- Jloyment and remains in the new ob for as long as 12 weeks, then f he becomes unemployed he cannot he disqualified for having quit the first job of his own accord." Wed Recently At Whittemore Pictured above are Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Opheim. who were married Feb. 12 in a ceremony performed at St. Paul's Lutheran church, Whittemore, by Rev. Carl Hintichs.

Farmers First To Get Census Questionnaires Mathews emphasized the state- nent that a person who quits a ob for no good reason and then s unable to fino. work, will not e able to claim benefits. The law ays a claimant must be unem- woyed through no fault of his wn.
