Fact and Fancy
I have always been something of
an unreconstructed Rebel, and for
many years I even thought it
would be a good idea to re-open
hostilities with those you-know-
the-type-Yankees. But the years
have mellowed me and I have been
.making the most of a relatively
Still you can be sure that I
cheered when 115-year old General
Walter Wiliams, the only confed-
erate Army veteran in Texas, ex-
pressed himself regarding a new
bill providing pensions for surviv-
ing Confederate veterans. Asked
if he had any compuction about
spending Yankee cash, Williams
replied, “Money is money.”
Now don’t get the idea that Old
Rebel Williams was selling out. I
bet if someone hollered out, “Man
the barricades, the Yankees are
coming!” this old warrior would
be out of his rocking chair grab-
bing his rifle quicker than you
could say, “Jeff Davis was a
mighty great man.”
The truth is that General Wil-
liams realizes that being on the
losing end of a scrap with Uucle
Sam can be pretty good business.
In fact, I understand there’s a
saying among the nations of the
world which goes something like
this: “It’s better to have fought
the United States and lost than
never to have fought her at all.”
My awn feeling is that so long
as we Rebels can have our South-
ern women folk and three squares
daily of Southern cooking, them
Yankee bums can mighty well
keep that old trophy for first
place. So there, too.
Acceptance of adult welfare
cases has placed a new financial
burden on the Gonzales Warm
Springs Foundation, now being
called the Texas Rehabilitation
For example, during 1957, pa-
tients from one large Texas city
received $44,000 in patient care
at the Center and $19,000 of this
was welfare. During the first four
months of 1958, patients from this
same city had received treftments
costing $28,000 and $20,000 of this
It is our sincere hope that the
people of Texas will provide the
financial assistance so badly need-
ed to treat indigent adults as well
as children. We feel they are en-
titled to the care they need.

Working women and wives of
retired workers can receive social
security payments after reaching
age 62. The amount of the checks
won’t be exactly the same as it
would be at age 65 but will be re-
duced according to when the pay-
ments begin. The earlier they be-
gin, the larger the reduction. How-
ever, early filing can mean extra
months or years of social security
checks. Taking the reduced benefit
at any age between 62- and 65
means a woman could be ahead
for twelve to fifteen years. The
extra checks received before age
65 make up for the reduction for
that length of time.
