Though limited in his presentation by security measures imposed by the department, Lind showed the students pictm'es of the White House and its lawns, the Washington Monument, Air Force 1, the Oval Office, and the official White House swimming pool, where an officer is stationed when President Carter or his family take a dip. To the students' delight he related that President Carter's daughter Amy often invites many of her classmates to the White House for barbecues, swim parties or private movie screenings in the official theatre. Officer Lind described his training, which he said includes monthly tests at the shooting range. He displayed a target silhouetted with a human figure, gun drawn, on which he has scored well enough to earn a "Distinguished Expert" medal, the highest of four markmanship categories. But when asked how often he uses his gun, Lind replied, "I've fired only at the targets -- and that's enough for Me."

Citizenship Everyone,regardless of age or place of birth, must now submit evidence of age, identity, and U.g. citizenship or lawful ad- mission status when applying for a social security number, Gary Wolfsheimer, social security branch manager in Mar- tinsburg, stated. These procedures are intended to help protect the applicant's social security record, assure that it is complete and accurate, and to prevent anyone else from misusing or abusing the person's social security number, Wolf- sheimer said. In addition, a person 18 or over who is applying for a number for the first time must appear in Ranson. The best evidence of a per- son's age and U.S. citizenship is a birth certificate, Wolfsheimer Crist oL Ranson and Mr. Carl Hill, Bakerton.

This should be submitted if possible. But, if it is not available, other documentary evidence can be used Evidence of identity should include documentation which shows the person's picture, signature, date of birth or age, or other identifying information. Applicants not born in the U.S. should submit evidence of their U.S. citizenship or their im- migration documents showing they are lawfully admitted to the U.S. All documents submitted as evidence are subject to verification with the agency which issued them, Wolfsheimer said. A person should allow, plenty of time to get the number. It takes 3 to 4 weeks to issue the number and deliver the card after all required evidence has been submitted.
