THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1963 .HE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 5 Questions And Answers On Social Security %y Kmll ,1. Hoffman, MimnRpr Ml. Vernon Snrlnl Scrtirlty orflcc Q —A friend of mine is R5 nncl still operating his rnnch. He sells cnttle only once a yenr. That is, nil liis income is received in one /nonlh. Can't he Ret his social security benefits for the 11 months in which he has no income? A—A rancher is self employed. For self employed people, it. is not. n question of how much they take during a month hut whether they render substantial services— that is are active in their business. Al- thoufih this rancher receives all of his income in one month, he no doubt, works in all l'J months to enrn it. The amount of social security that, he can get in a year depends on the amount of his earnings in n year, and also the number of months, if any, that he was not active in his business. - * * Q—I will be <VJ in March 1964. My neighbor says I must have a birth certificate to prove my age. Is Ibis true'. 1 Men.... PROMISE HER ANYTHING But GIVE HER MINK THIS CHRISTMAS i Quality Furriers A—No, generally speaking, it is not true. You must submit, evidence of your age, and a birth certificate issued at tjic time of your birth Is of course the most reliable proof of age. But about 45 percent of the births in this country between 1895 and 1920 were not registered. You may be among this group. If so, you may be able to prove your age with some other document, such as n baptismal certificate, family Bible, a marriage record, confirmation records, school records, military or immigration record. Q -Does all the social security lax go for social purposes, or does part of it go into the general funds of the Treasury? A—No, part of the social security tax goes into the general funds of the Treasury. If taxes exceed expenditures in a given year -which they will ordinarily do—-the balance goes inlo the Iwo social security trust funds, which are kept separate from all other Government funds. The assets of 'be trust funds are invested in interest - hearing Government bonds. ' Q I operate a farm and since my wife's death I have hired a housekeeper to prepare the meals, do housework, and look after the children. I pay her $25 a week. Do I have to report her wages for social security purposes? A —Yes, you must report her wages and pay the social security tax due. For more information, ask your local social security office for leaflet No. 21. Campbell New Head Of Oil Compact (AP)-Gov. Jack D-N.M., is the of the H-stale Compact Com- Freeman May Stay In Cabinet U.S. Representative Henry Clay of Kentucky, was elected Speaker on his first day in the House of Representatives. SANTA FK M. Campbell, new chairman interstate Oil mission, Campbell, '17, was elected Wednesday to succeed Gov. Matthew E. Welsh, D-lnd. Campbell immediately praised a Monday action by President Lyndon B. Johnson i Johnson and called for full 1 speed on completion o[ a com- 1 prehensive nil and gas conservation efficiency study the commission is making at the request of Interior Secretary Stewart Udall. Johnson Monday advised Udall he wants the Interior Department instead of thp White House to set national oil policy. Campbell said the decision was good news to the Compact and its member oil states. "This gives us an opportunity to re-establish what has been a reduction of the lines of communication between the oil slates and federal agencies," Campbell said. "We cannot reduce our guard against federal encroachment on states rights but there arc problems we must discuss with federal agencies." The only major resolution adopted at the final session of the commission's 27th meeting reaffirmed earlier requests that the Federal Mandatory Oil I>ort.s Control Program strengthened. One of Campbell's first actions as Compact chairman was to ask Welsh to continue as chairman of the special committee of eight governors making Ihe efficiency study suggested by Udall, Campbell will continue as a committee member. In 1940, the British Kmpire covered nearly 1(1 million square miles of I ho earth, according to the Kncyclopaedia The jaguar is the largest cat . in the western hemisphere. Bv RICHARD I\ POWKIW WASHINGTON (AP)-All indications are that Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman will remain indefinitely in the Cabinet of President Johnson and no major farm policy switches are contemplated for 1964. At a recent meeting, President Johnson was reported to have told Freeman with tongue in cheek that if Freeman tried to resign he would have him arrested. Johnson and Freeman reportedly see eye to eye on most farm problems. And Johnson, suddenly ; engulfed with many major jj^nblcms when he assumed the presidency with the asassination of President Kennedy, is glad to leave the farm mallei's with Freeman. Here is the way those close to Freeman view the situation: Freeman will receive as much, or possibly more, latitude to run his big department from Johnson ns he enjoyed under Kennedy, who likewise leaned heavily on him in dealing with farm problems. Johnson and Freeman think alike on such mailers as work­ ing out plans to aid the low-income farmer. Freeman bad to convince Kennedy of the need for a new program. But Johnson, a Texas cattle rancher, grew up with a farm background and there will be less need to explain the situation. Johnson and freeman get along well personally. Both are S politicians. Neither is concerned I so much with philosophy as with i how to get this or that problem I solved. j Johnson, as Senate Democratic leader before be was | elected vice president, had to 'know the intricacies of all piec- I cs of farm legislation thai came i before the Senate. I In 1!)(>0 after Johnson had been put on the Kennedy ticket, Johnson told Freeman that he would do what he could to help elect Freeman to an unprecedented fourth term as governor of Minnesota. Johnson told Freeman he could come inlo Minnesota, or stay out, whichever would do the most good. Johnson did, however, come in and campaigned in southern Minnesota. Kennedy captured Mii^iesota by a narrow margin, hut Free- j man lost out in his hid for an• other term as governor. Free- jnian had supported Kennedy for I Ihe presidential nomination well j before the Democratic conven- ! lion. Kennedy later appointed I Freeman secretary of agricul­ ture. Johnson and Freeman have been close associates since. It is too early to say Just what Johnson will have In mind on the farm front when Congress reconvenes for Its second session in January. But it is likely that he will ask Congress to enact a now wheat program.
