Social Security News Housewives, students, and other people who plan to get a summer job should apply now for a social security number if they don't have one,' according to Vernon A. Kilpatrick, social security manager in Andalusia. "You should apply for your number several weeks before you need it for a job covered by social security," Kilpatrick said. "Applications must be screened against central files in Baltimore to make sure that a second number isn't that same person. Screening generally takes several weeks. ' ' More than nine out of ten jobs are covered by social se- curity. People applying for a social security number for the first time may be asked to prove their age, identity, and citi- zenship. "Your social security num- ber is yours along and remains the same for life," Kilpatrick said. "A worker builds retire- ment, disability, survivors, and Medicare protection by work and earnings credited tohisso- cial security number. So when you get a job covered by social security, be sure your employer copies your name and number correctly from your social se- curity card to his records." People can get information about applying for a social se- curity number by calling, writ- ing, or visiting any social se- curity office. "If you've lost your social security card, you can get a duplicate by contacting any so- cial security office," Kilpat- rick said. "You can get a dup- licate faster if you've kept the stub that came with your so- cial security card." The Andalusia social security office is at 408 South Three Notch Street. The phone num- ber is WX-6300. PERSONAL Mrs. J. E. Yeaman left Monday morning to be with her daughter, Mrs. Tommy Mc- Call, who is confined at a local hospital in DeFuniak Springs, Florida.

They get it from breathing indoor air polluted by other people's tobacco smoke. Measurable quantities of ni- cotine were present in the blood and urine of most nonsmokers tested at two hospitals in Lon- don. While theaverage concen- tration of nicotine in the urine of nonsmokers was 10 units, it was 1200 units for smokers. However, when nonsmokers were deliverately exposed to high concentrations of tobacco smoke in an unventilated room for a little more than an hour, the average level of nicotine in their urine increased 1000per- cent. One startling result of the study was this: after exposure, several nonsmokers had such enormous increases in their urinary nicotine levels that they were higher than those of smo- kers. The researchers at the New Cross and Maudsley Hospitals said, "Passive smoking may be harmful, and infants are most at risk." Another London study show .,~l that tobacco smoke gen- erated by parents' smoking ac- tually doubles the risk of an in- fant's attack of pneumonia or bronchitis.

They serve as safeout- lets for terraces, diversions, and contour rows• They also serve as passage-ways for water that enters your farm from other land. Good grass waterways are a must in controlling erosion on many farms.
