Bismarck, N. D., Aug. ~/.--North Dakota's old age pension law under its present provisions will give the state's needy aged approximately30 cents each per month, Commission- er of Agriculture and Labor John Husby revealed. Under the pension law the com- missioner of agriculture and labor administers the act with the aid of boards of county commissioners. With $400,000 already allotted by 46 counties in the state, less than $18.000 has been collected under the one-tenth mill levy to mee~ the de- mands of 3.2(}0 aged whose applica- tions have been approved. Amount 'Pitifully Small' Two counties have not reported any applications, ~nd five have re- turned incomplete applications. Husby said he expected more than $500,000 will have been allotted to the aged poor by the end of the year with a "pitifully small amount" on hand to supply the needs. "If we collected all that would be available dnder the law, it would amount to only $54,(}00---an Amount which would give an average of only $12 per year per pensioner--one dol- lar per month." Husby said. He recommended an increase to "at least one mill Ievy." On the present basis, pensioners SALES BEING CLOSED H E RE Those Having Stock to Sell Should At Once Notify Surplus Cattle Agent At Once The drought relief cattle market- lng program in Oolden Valley coufi- ty Is drawing to a clo~e, according to County Agent Russell, director of the work here.
