Mrs. League Tells Lawson Botts UDC Of Her Teaching Days The March meetlng of Lawson Botts Chapter U. D, C. was held at the Hllleary house Tuesday ev- ening, March 10. The meeting was announced in the pYogram .book to be held at the home of Mrs. Pax- son Whitmore but due to the un- ,fortunate accident which sent Mrs. John Osbourn ,to the hospi- .tal and t'he severe cold suffered by Mrs. Whitmore the meeting place was changed. Mrs. Cecelia League, Mrs. Mur- tel Brockman, and Mrs. Lacey Bail ey were the hostesses for this meet ing serving coffee, cake and as- sorted mints to thirteen members and one visitor. Mrs. League regretfully announ ced that Mr. Wheeler had called and said he would not be able to address the ,meeting because of the sudden illness of Mrs. Wheel- er. The members were very sorry to hear of this because the Rev. Wheeler and ~he Children's Haven are always of special interest to every member. Mention was made of the illness Byrd Introduce Bill To Retirement Age Senatons Robert C. Byrd and Jennings Randolph (both D-W. Va.) have introduced a bill that would lower the voluntary Social' Security retirement age for bo~h men and women to 60. The measuro, which wou~ld give aging persons opportunity to recei ve benefits five years sooner than under present regulations, has been referred to the Senate Fin- ance Committee. Sens. Byrd and Randolph said in a joint statement that the new bill (S. 1186) not only would aid aging persons, but would contri- bu~ to better economic conditions in areas of unemployment. "If thousands of older men and women can be given a chance to retire at a younger age" they said "than then jobs which they leave will be open to other persons now seeking employment." The Senators added, however that the foremost objective of the bill is to help older persons. ":We believe tha, t the traditional retirement age ol 65 is an arbi- trary figure which does not truly reflect the economic facts of life", they said. "It disregards the hum an factor that some people are forced to retire before ~hat time for physicial reasons Moreover, job opportunities for older workers are becoming more and more re- stricted. "As workers grow older they find themselves exposed to work- ing conditions of heat. pace, inten sity, noise, load, risk and respon- sibility which are beyond their physical ability. Many persons who have worked all their lives at hard labor suffer injury and chron ic ill health during their later years. They are in a twilight zone- being unable to qualify for disabil ity benefits, yet unable to find and hold jobs to sustain them un til they reach age 65 and can quaI lfy for old-age benefits."
