WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 6
—Senator Tom Connally today in-
troduced in the senate a bill which
would double the federal contri-
bution toward Texas old age pen-
sion payments. This bill is in line
with President Roosevelt’s recent
proposal to vary federal pension
grants according to the per capi-
ta income of the states rather
than on a 50-50 basis. This will en-
able the poorer states to receive
proportionately a larger slice of
federal funds than that received
by the richer states.
Under the present act the fed-
eral government matches the
Texas contribution dollar for dol-
lar, but under the proposed Con-
nally bill the federal government
would e ontribute a little more
than $2 for every dollar contribut-
ed by the Texas legislature. In
other words, a $45 Texas pension
payment would be possible by the
state contributing about $15 and
the federal government contrib-
uting the remainder. Heretofore
the combined contributions of the
the federal and Texas govern-
ments have totaled a little less
than $14, but with the same state
contribution the total would be
$22.50 under the Connally bill.
Under recent enactments of the
Texas legislature, if funds are
available, the monthly payments
from federal arid state funds
would amount to $18.50, but un-
der the Connally bill with the
same state contribution, t h e
monthly pavments would amount
Senator Connally’s bill Avas ap-
proved in substance in a recent
senate hearing by Dr. A. J. Alt-
mever, the chairman of the Social
Security board. The present bill
has been worked out by the joint
efforts of Senator Connally and
the legal staff of the Social Se-
Senator Connally’s bill has been
referred to the finance commit-
tee, of which Senator Connally
himself is a high-ranking member.

MEETS WITH LOCAL BOARD
Q. Has the- government set a
quota to be raised through the
sales of Defense Savings Bonds'?
No; there is no quota and no
time limit. The defense savings
program is to be a continuing ef-
fort, and both Defense Bonds and
Stamps should be purchased reg-
ularly and steadily.
Q. Why were the nation’s re-
tail stores asked to sell Defense
A. American retailers were not
asked—they volunteered through
their national organizations to un-
dertake the sale of Defense Sav-
ings Stamps on a vast scale.
Note — To buy Defense Bonds
and Stamps, go to the nearest
post office, bank, or savings and
loan association; or write to the
Treasurer of the United States,
Washington, D .C. Also Stamps
now are on sale at most retail
Since wheat farmers will vote
in a national referendum next
spring to decide on marketing
quotas, Carson county wheat far-
mers should consider their acre-
age allotments when seeding their
1942 crop, Charles Lemons, chair-
man of the Carson county AAA
committee, said this week.
If quotas are approved by a
two-thirds vote, farmers plant-
ing writhin 1942 wheat allotments
will be able to sell the entire
crop without penalty, but far-
mers exceeding allotments will be
required to pay a penalty of 50
per cent of the national loan rate
on all wheat defined as “excess’
wheat under marketing quotas,
In the event quotas are voted
down next spring, a government
loan will not be made since mar-
keting quotas protect loan col-
lateral, the AAA official ex-
plained. Loans at 85 per cent of
parity are in effect on this year’s
crop since quotas were given fav-
orable vote in a national referen-
dum earlier in the year.
Secretary of Agriculture Claude
R. Wiekard issued the wheat pro-
clamation several weeks, ago, since,
according to the AAA act, an-
nouncement must be made prior
to May 15 of any marketing year
when it appears the wheat sup-
ply wil exceed a normal year’s
domestic consumption and exports
by more than 35 per cent. The na-
fl^onal referendum will be held!
before June 10 ,1942.
The purpose of wheat market-
ing quotas is to divide a limited
wheat market equally among
wheat producers, so that, each
will get his fair share, the com-

FIRE PREVENTION IS A
Fire prevent week, Oct. 5 to
11, is of greater significance this
year than at any time in the past,
in any period, fire prevention
marks a definite contribution to
the security and prosperity of the
nation. Today, fire prevention is
essential to the nation’s defense.
Such organizations as the Na-
tional Board of Fire Underwrit-
ers are carrying on a great work
—without charge to the govern-
ment— in defending our army
camps, naval bases, munitions de-
pots,, air fields and other mili-
tary establishments against fire.
They are also redoubling their ef-
forts to prevent fire and build
better and more efficient fire de-
fense organizations in our great
industrial centers. But, vital as
this is, it is not enough. The or-
ganized groups cannot do it all.
For successful fire prevention
must be a national endeavor. It
must be carried on in every town,
every place of business, and every
That is how Fire Prevention
week offers us all an opportun-
ity. It gives us a chance to learn
those simple rules which, put in-
to effect, will prevent the bulk of
fires. It gives us a chance, there-
fore, to save life and property.
And, finally, it gives us a chance
to preserve materials and re-
sources which are needed for the
defense of this country.
Give fire an inch, and it takes
a mile. It is the ever-present ene-
my of our safety and our secur-
ity. It must be licked !
