J J See Chronology back page-- New Social Security Rate Increase Becomes Effective January 1st The social security administra- tion and the internal revenue service this week reminded em- ployers and self - employed in- dividuals of the new social se- curity tax rates which became r- etire January 1. The employer tax and the em- ployee tax under the Federal In- surance Contribution Act will each increase from 3 per cent to 3 per cent. Employers arc required to withhold employee tax at the rate of 3 per cent, from wages paid after December 31, 1961, regardless of when the wages are earned. The social security tax due from self- employed individuals on their income from self - em- ployment will increase from 45 Area is Spared Holiday Snowstorm The Sanborn County area was spared a predicted New Year light snow and below normal temperatures as the trend ap- parently veered into another di- rection and brought mild tem- perature Monday, and a Ianuary thaw on Tuesday. Maximum temperature reached into the forties and much of the thin snow covering disappeared. A Suggestion that perhaps the unique presentation at the Egyp- tian Sphinx could be applied to a national monument in South Dakota has been made by Sena- tor Karl Mundt upon his return from a visit to that country. The Sphinx is not silent, as we have believed, says Senator Mundt. In- stead, as light flicker over the monument, a voice is emitted carried by loud speakers and the Sphinx is heard giving its own history, instead of it being reeled off by a guide or read from litera- ture. Its message from out of the darkness includes the advice: "I have watched the sun come up for more than 5,000 years as men have come and gone, fought and died, ruled and been de- throned, and I urge you who hear me now to pay heed to the lessons to be learned from his- tory." The suggestion is to work out a presentation of lighting and voices for Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills. The monument is now one of the most inspiring of the nation, resulting only from vision and history. Voices echo- ing t-he immortal words of these great countrymen would bring added inspiration to visitors at the monument, a new dedication to the principles of the nation. The suggestion will probably find general, approval among those who have visited this national shrine .... Headlines announce that there is to be more con- centration in the capitol on new farm program proposals, indicat- ing there is some dissatisfaction with the current trend. This isn't anything new, for the pro- ram has been changing with the whims of politicians for thirty years or more... The Bathtub was invented in 1850 and the tele. phe in 1875. Had you been Hy- ing in 1850, yon could have sat in the bathtub for 2 rears with- out the phone ringing once! .... per cent to 4.7 per cent for tax- able years beginning after De- cember 31, 1961. The old rate of 4.5 per cent should be used for 1961 calandar year returns. Maximum earnings subject to the tax remain at $4,80000 a year. In line with its policy of setting a schedule of social security tax- es sufficient to meet the cost of all present future benefits, con- gress provided for the increases to finance the additional cost of the social security program brought about by the 1961 amend- ments. The following three chang. es, which are already in effect, each added slightly to the cost: I. An increase of about 10 per cent in the monthly benefits due 62 year old or older widows get- ting benefits on the accounts of their deceased husbands. 2. An increase for most bene- ficiaries drawing minimum bene- fits. The lowest old age benefit for those who started drawing at age 65 or later, was increased from $33 to $40, with a cor.e- sponding i n c r e a s e percentage wise for those who elected to draw reduced benefits beginning before age 65. The lowest bene- fit for a single survivor was also increased from $33 to $40 a month and the minimum for two or more survivors was raised to $60 a month. 3. The amount of coverage re- quired to qualify for benefits was reduced, permitting payments to be made to some retired people or survivors who could not qual- ify previously. ASC To Start Spring Sign-up February 5 The signup period for spring- planted crops under the 1961 feed grain and wheat stabilization pro- grams will begin February 5 and will run through March 30, Les- lie Grace, chairman, ASC coun- ty committee, has announced. The signup period will apply to 1962 - crop acreages of corn, grain sorghum, wheat, and bar- ley. Under the two programs, the chairman explained, farmers help bring production into line with needs by diverting wheat and feed grain acreage to ap- proved conserving uses. The early signup dates will give farmers and farm servicing in- dustries an opportunity to make early plans for the coming crop year. As outlined by Mr. Grace, the main provisions of the 1962 feed grain program are :1) Voluntary participation, (2) acreage diver- sign of not less than 20 per cent of the base acreage (1959-60 av- erage) as adjusted, (3) payments "in kind" to be made on acreage diverted from feed grains to soil- conserving uses, (4) "advance" payments, and (5) price .support to cooperators on the normal pro- duction of acreages planted to feed grains. The program for spring wheat -- the same as for winter wheat -- will include (1) a mandatory cut of 10 per cent from acreage based on a national allotment of 55 million acres to avoid market- ing quota penalty, (2) voluntary acreage diversion in addition, (3) payments for both the mandatory and voluntary diversion of wheat acreage to soil - eonservinguses, and (4) price:support to coopera-, tors .... VOLUME SEVENTY-EIGHT WOONSOCKET, SOUTH DAKOTA THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1962 NUMBER 10 v. Driver Validating Locations Set Driver's permit validation of- flees have b e e n established through South Dakota, it was an- nounced today by Milo H. Smith, commissioner of Motor Vehicles. Sheriff's offices in all counties except Minnehaha, Charles Mix, Moody and Walworth counties will perform the validation serv- ice for the Department of Motor Vehicles In Sanborn County validation will be done at the offices of the register of deeds and clerk of courts as the sheriff's office is not steadily manned by a deputy. The schedule for validating per- mits expiring in 1962 is as fol- lows: Operators whose last names be. gin with letters A through F must make proper application to a driver's license examiner for a new permit no more than 30 days before the expiration date shown on the present permit. Operators with last names be- ginning with letters G through N must appear in a validating office within 30 days before their permit expires in lorder to have it validated in thdir birthday in 1964. Operators with last names be- ginning with the letters 0 through Z must appear in a validating office within 30 days of the ex- piration date on their permit to have it validated to their birth- day in 1965. All present permits must be validated for extension except those permits which expire be. tween January 1, 1962 and Jan- uary 24, 1962 inclaJive. Smith said that those permits are being automatically extend- ed an additional 21 days exclusive of date of expiration because of lateness in distribution of the validating rubber stamps. Any per,, "re, ]ting an ex- ,,, _wt "t* rfused the validation and-will be required to take the complete driver's ex- amination and apply for a new permit. Smith said all driver's license examiners now have the validat- ing stamps and will extend per- mits presented to them. Ex- amination schedules for e a c h month will be announced in ad- vance by the Department of Mo- tor Vehicles.

JACKS JOIN VALUABLES LIST Thieves Load Rabbits From Storage at Produce Buildings The price of jackrabbits has reached a point where they're on the valuables list ,-- an attrac- tion for thievery. Two Woonsocket produce firms, buyers of jackrabbits, were raid- ed by thieves Friday night, mak- ing a clean sweep by taking every animal in both places. Woonsocket Produce, operated by AI Roti, had the heaviest loss, with more than 60 rabbits taken. The thieves had consid- erable self - confidence in their actions. They  a rear window of, the bu/kU, opened the rear door from the inside and backed their vehicle to the door for loading -- then revers- ed the door and window closing, leaving everything as they found it -- except the rabbits. At Parsons Produce the lock from an outside storage contain- er was broken to gain access to the desired animals -- only a haft dozen here as the accumula- tion had been sold a short time before Friday night. No trace of the stolen property has been found. The market on rabbits is around 75 cents apiece. and county wide. Also we know that from the research came the Salk vaccine which can reduce or practically eliminate Io ifv.pople a,/gil themselves of.. it.* Now the National Foundation has turned its attention to birth defects and crippling arthritis-- areas in which the need is great. Still another project which the foundation hopes to accomplish is that of bringing specialists into all areas of the United States. What has Sanborn County done with its March of Dimes funds? It has sponsored polio clinics making it possible for all people in the county to obtain the Salk vaccine for a nominal sum or free if people cannot afford to pay. Sanborn County has cared for polio patients; this last year it assisted with one birth defect case. If you feel these causes are worthy, won't you contribute gen- erously to the drive being con- ducted during January?
