Mark IV En- terprises. 1-1-4tc ANDALUSIA, first $15,300 of covered earn- ings for the year, starting in January.The 1975 base was $14,000. Since benefit amounts are based on average earnings co- vered by social security, the increase in the wage base means that people working now will be mtitled to higher payments la- er. Social security pays over ~5 1/2 billion a month in re- :irement, disability, and survi- ors benefits to over 31 million 3eople. The SocialSecurity Ad- ministration is an agency of the U. S. Department of Health, Edu- cation and Welfare. Productivity Figures Show Record Gains Productivity in the total private economy climbed at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 9.5 per cent in the third quarter of 1975, reports the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is 1.9 per cent above the third quarter of 1974. Output jumped 12.1 per cent and hours worked rose by 2.4 per cent, according to the Bureau, for the largest in- crease in output per hour of all persons since the first quarter of 1972. Timber Program Saves You Money Timber is expensive, but if you're lucky enough to live near a national forest you may be able to use some of the timber for firewood, fencing, building and other domestic purposes. But you must check with the local District Forest Ranger, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. A "special use" permit may be issued to you at no cost if ou are a resident of an area *,here the Free Use Timber Program is in effect. Use of such timber is limit- :d to nonprofit-making ven- ures. For more information, vrite to the Division of Timber danagemeot, Forest Service, J.S. Department of Agricul- ure, Washington, D.C. 20250.
