The Bismarck Tribune is carrying a series of articles by Rodney Dutch- er in which the NEA correspondent gives 0 detailed discussion of the government - state SoCial Security plan. l~n Monday's discourse, Mr. Dutcher points out that the progrant %4. undertakes to do two things about the problems of old age and the des- titution which so often accompanies it: "1.} To encourage and financially aid the states immediately in estab- lishing old age pensions for persons alrev~ly aged and needy. That ~phase of the program is officially known a " " " s Old Age Assmtance. "2, To develop a federal old age insurance system Under which em- ployers and employes will be taxed for an eventually huge fund * from wlfich annuities will be paid to em- ployes on retirement at the age of 65. This phase is officially known as "Federal Old Age Benefits.'- "Old Age Benefits are the most controversial part of the whole pro- gram. The scheme is attacked be- cause it means an eventual 6~ per cent tax on payrolls, Which, coupled with the federal unemployment in- surance tax. will total 9 per cent by 1949 and a total tax "drain" of Per- haps $2.~700,000,000 a year." The correspondent goes on te ex- plain how the program will operate, who will be benefited, how the mon- ey will be apportioned, etc. An in- teresting map accompanies the arti- cle, showing the type of old age pension laws in the various states. North Dakota is one of the 16 states having laws which do not meet fed. eral requirementS. 15 states have laws which do meet federal require- ments, 6 states have set no dates for their laws to take effect, and 11 states have no old age pension laws at all. ~lJll SEVERE BREAK IS NOTED IN PRICE OF YEARLIN6 CATTLE South St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 17, 193b (USDA):: A severe break of 25-50c was noted in short-fed steers and yearlings during :last Week. trade proving extremely sluggish at the decline.
