Citv Drug Gets
The building which houses the
City Drug, west side of the local
courthouse square, is finally under-
going a face-lifting, which project
will give that entire block the
“new look" when it is completed
In its present stage, it is hard
U visualize jji9t what the reno-
vation will be, other than a brisk
and-glass front, but it will very
definitely help the frontal appear
ance of the block.

Birth certificates are not always
necessary when applying for old-
age insurance benefits, Erton F.
Tate, District Manager of the
Wichita Falls, Texas Social Secur-
ity office pointed out yesterday.
Tate said that this is a cmmon
misconeption among thos - who ap-
ply for old-age benefits. Although
birth certificates are not neces-
sary, some proof of age may be
required. Some of the more com-
monly used proofs are old family
records such as a family Bible, old
insurance policies, voters records,
and marriage records.
To be used as evidence, these
documents must show the claim-
ant’s date of birth or age; they
must be authentic and they should
be reasonably old. Since the
Bureau of Old- Age and Survivors
Insurance has certain rules and
regulations it must follow in con-
sidering whether evidence is suf-
ficient to prove the applicant’s
age, the document should be ta-
ken to the local social security
office for personal inspection at
the time a claim is filed.
If you are planning to apply for
old age benefits in the near fu-
ture, it would he better to look
for some record such as mentioned
above rather than to concentrate
on getting a delayed birth cer-
Actually, in many cases, Tate
said, such a record is preferable
to a delayed birtfi certificate, es-
pecially if the certificate is'of re-

Before a contract arises some-
one must make an offer and an-
other must accept it.
Without an offer, no aeeptane;
with no aeeptane, no agreement.
But there is often a time within
which you can accept the offer
And if not, the offer ends anyhow
within a “reasonable time” which
is determined by circumstances
and the parties’ intentions.
Smith had a set of books which
Brown wanted^ Brown wrote and
offered him $200 for the set.
Smith didn’t answer for six
months, and meantime Brown
bought a similar set. One day
Brown got a letter from Smith
saying “I accept your offer of $200
for the set of books.”
Brown told Smith he’d bought
the books elsewhere, but Smith
still claimed that his belated “ac-
ceptance” had nevertheless sealed
the contract with Brown.
Was there a contract? Na, the
offer had lapsed because it had
not been accepted in the circum-
stances within a reasonable time.
There are many ways to end an
offer. You may withdraw it, you
may say that the offer expires at
a given time, or you may die, or
the other party may turn it down
directly or by making a counter
Here Smith had failed to accept
Brown’s offer within a reasonable
time, which ended it just as
though it had been withdrawn.
What is a reasonable time? It
varies. The offer could expire in
a few minutes in the stock mar-
ket or last for quite a while, de-
pending upon what a court would
think is a reasonable time.
But in Smith’s case six months
