Mullins, who held his last full-time job in 1040 at 82, apparently didn't know about Social Security until a relative told him about it. His interest had been aroused by recent publicity about Medicare. A Social Security representative said Mullins is probably eligible for the minimum bene fit of $44 a month.

Lakes, it s fannies from heaven for commercial lake carriers and a better season for Hie yachtsman. A recent lake survey by army engineers shows an increase in the water levels of all the Great I.aks—from a couple of inches to a couple of feet. It means lake carriers "can carry considerable additional tonnage." said a spokesman for the Lake Carriers Association here. "It means less chance of bu rn ping the bottom." said Cleveland attorney Al Mastics, yachting editor of the Plain Dealer The engineers’ forecast is that both Lake F.rie and Lake Ontario will I m * almost a foot higher than last year. Lake Erie already is IO inches above its 1965 level. For every inch added to the water level, shippers are per mitted to add an additional 60 to KH) tons to the hold, depending on the size of the ship. During the 1965 season, Great Lakes shipping amounted to 195,* 331,784 net tons of bulk commodities, an increase of three million tons over 1964. The Lake Carriers Association says 1966 should Im* an even more successful year because of the increased water levels. Lake St. Clair, a major connecting link between Lake Erie and Lake Huron, is up one foot, seven inches, from mid-February 1965, and the engineers expect it to gain almost that much more by summer. “It will save a tremendous amount of money, because dredging costs a fortune." said Mastics, speaking from the yachtsman’s point of view. He said the increased levels will mean that the engineers will not have to dredge as much in the lakes and that yacht clubs won’t have to dredge as much at their private installations. Engineers said the rising water levels are due to heavy precipitation in the fall of 1965. ington C. II. Kiwanis Club, in Persinger Hall at the First Presbyterian Church, Mond a y at 6 45 p. rn.

Court St. 335-3030 SNEAKY LEAKERS KEEP US BUSY ALL WINTER Dogs show no curiosity—but people do—about the working of these streetside safety sentinels called fire plugs or fire hydrants. The anatomy of a hydrant is a delicate and highly sophisticated mechanism designed to produce instantly enough water to fight a fire. AFTER use it is full to its bonnet with water that should drain off through an automatic drain valve and through port holes five feet underground, deeper than the frost line. This valve can, become inoperative and the undrained water remains in the upper part of the hydrant. Sometimes, if the ground becomes very wet, water may seep back through the ports and such hydrants are known as "leakers”; in either event they may freeze. HERE, in Winter, is where our Hydrant Maintenance Man goes into action, looking for trouble. This is why he makes his regular rounds like a watchman, to keep you safe and sound. Fire Hydrants mean fire protection! They mean reduced insurance rates, higher property values, attractive neighborhoods and community growth. They are the outdoor salesmen for OWS, whose indoor water services are many. Watch out for the fire plug—it watches out for you. NOTE: FOR YOUR SAFETY, KEEP YOUR FIREPLUG CLEAR OF SNOW SO THAT IT CAN BE READILY LOCATED. OHIO WATER SERVICE COMPANY
