Dallas, April 28— Plans for an
intensive campaign to assign social
security account numbers by June 30
! to every wage earner in employments
covered by the Federal Old Age Bene-
fits provisions of the Social Secutity
Act were outlined today by E. L.
Tutt, Field Representative of the So-
cial Security Board.
"Although approximately 000.000
account number cards have been is-
ued in the state of Texas, we are
certain that there still are several
thousand covered workers in this
field who have not yet applied for
account numbers," Tutt said.
"The postoffices will continue to
receive applications for account num-
bers throug|, Juia, ■''(). Until that date,
application forms will oe in easy
reach of any unregistered workers;
after that date, ah applicant will
have to contact the nearest Social
Security field office in order to es-
tablish an old-age benefits account.
We hope, therefore, to bring all af-
fected workers into the program while
facilities of the postoffice are yet
"Officials from this office will
begin immediately to visit the prin-
cipal cities in this area and speak to
employer groups, contact public of-
ficials, civic leaders, chambers of
commerce, heads of labor organiza-
i ons, fraternal and welfare groups,
women's clubs, editors and others
who.->t services may be enlisted in
brinring about enumeration of every
i|uaiiiied employee," Tutt asserted.
