Marriages, Divorces Off in Butler County Allison—Records in the office of Hugh L. Mosher, clerk of the district court, show, that during 1948 114 marriage licenses were issued as compared with 142 in 1947. Ten divorces were granted in 3948 compared with 13 in 1947 During 1948, 93 death certificates were recorded and 50 birth certificates. Many of the babies born to residents of this county are born in hospitals in adjoining counties and as the law requires that the certificates be filed in the county where the birth occurs, not many certificates are recorded in Butler county.

Goldman, manager of the Mason City social security office, as guest speaker at the January luncheon meeting of the Council of Social Agencies held at the Y. W. C. A. Wednesday noon. The increase in the search for security through social action has come about with the increased sense of insecurity brought about by modern life, Mr. Goldman pointed out. The country has had a great development in private insurance companies, he said. Figures show that when the average man dies his life insurance is about the only thing his family has with which to carry on. Society More Interdependent The question might then be asked why not continue to depend on them alone, Mr. Goldman said, adding that many factors need to be taken into account to answer that. People are more interdependent on one another in modern society. They have become more concerned about their fellowmen. There seems to be a common desire to arrange things so that every individual shall have a reasonable financial security in time of misfortune or old age and his family a reasonable security if the breadwinner dies. Generally, speaking, the wages of unskilled and semi-skilled workers have not been sufficient to meet their current needs and still accumulate enough savings to provide adequately for old age, the speaker said. After they are forced to quit work it is apparent that some helping hand must be given. And social insurance—social security—is such a helping hand, said Mr. Goldman. Feeling It Can Be Afforded The greatest stimulus of all to the adoption of social security measures has simply been the feeling that we can afford them, he explained. The country has a powerful, wealthy economy. If there are desirable standards of living which individuals cannot achieve for themselves, people are more willing to use social means to accomplish them, he said. Mr. Goldman's talk included an explanation of how the law operates. Briefly, the benefits accrued are paid to the person who has worked under the law upon retirement at 65, to his survivors if he dies before 65 and if there are no survivors a lump sum is paid to take care of his funeral ervices. Benefits are based on an .verage monthly wage covering a period of 10 years. Expansion Sought The law is not geared to present iving costs and the sentiment is ! or expansion to include some [roups of workers now excluded as religious and charity workers, onsequently a recommendation jvill be made to congress this year o amend it. It was previously amended in 1939 and again in 1946. A discussion period followed Mr. Goldman's talk. The program was in charge of the family wel- "are group, Maj. E. H. Tieman, chairman, presented the speaker. President John Calhoun presided. Dorothy Hanes of the American Cancer society office here was introduced. I Special recognition was given to the immediate past president of the council, Jim Norfolk, Winnebago Council Boy Scout executive, who will leave Mason City soon to take a new position. The next meeting will be held on Feb. 2 with the health group in charge, Bill Reed, chairman.
