Pitt Office Will Gladly Cooperate PITTSBURGH Are you receiving disability insurance benefits under the Social Se curity Law? If you are, or if you know of someone who is, then the recent change in the law is of importance, accord ing to Oral A. Ernst, district manager, East Liberty Social Security Office. Disability insurance ben efits have been payable to severely disabled workers 50 to 65 years of age since July, 1957. These disability payments are equal in amount to the monthly old-age insurance benefits the worker would re ceive if he were already 65 years of age, but the depen dents of these workers have not until now been eligible for payments. The New7 Amendments Under the new amend ments, the disabled persons' dependents will be paid the same benefits they would re ceive if he were 65 and draw ing benefits as a retired work er. Benefits can be paid to any of his children who are under 18 (or who have been totally disabled since before their 18th birthday). And to his wife regard less of her age, if she has in her care children who are eligible for these depen dent's benefits. If there is no child in the $292,700 family eligible for benefits, the wife of a disabled person can qualify for benefits when she reaches age 62. Contact Local Office Payments cannot start for these dependents of a disabled $215,500 195,500 46,500 worker until an application is filed, Mr. Ernst said. If you are a dependent of a disabled worker who is re ceiving disability insurance benefits, get in touch with your social security office. ..'

An American In Land Of Forebears bey," came by its name in the 15th Century, when it was a Benedictine Abbey. Today it is a spotless city of first class hotels, seashore o e n a e s e e s a n y bathing beaches, beautiful flower gardens, quaint cafes and restaurants, and the meeting place of pleasure bound tourists from many lands. It was here that the wri ter made the acquaintance of a college professor from London, England, an eru dite man who had just come to Opatija after tour ing portions of Russia for several weeks. Exchanging the time of day while basking on the beach fronting the Kristal Hotel, the writer informed the profes sor that he looked on Yugo slavia as being 50 years be hind the United States in just about every respect. e E n i s a n e i e that he couldn't say as much for the simple reason that he never visited America. But he did say that Russia was even further behind Yu goslavia in many, many ways. Which must come as a sur prise to those who claim that Yugoslavia is falling apart at the seams as a nation, while Russia is a "progressive" World power to be reckoned with. Famed Postojna Grotto Highlight of the group stay here was a visit to the Postoj na Caves. One hour by rail from Lju bljana, Slovenia, and one and one-half hours via bus from Rijeka, the Postojna Caves or Grotto—are a monstrosity of nature and said by scien tists to be at least 80-milhon years old. First made accessible to visitors in 1819, the Caves are a maze of stalagmites and stalactites formed over the centuries by beads of water dropping eternally on the limestone roof and walls of the caverns. A small electric railway today takes the tourists three kilometers into the interior of the Caves and frqm there they walk, appropriately "hooded," to view with a mazement the fantastic work of nature spotlighted by floodlights of modern vintage. While every nook and cran ny of these caverns are in teresting, Postojna's Concert and Dance Halls are some thing else again. It was in this Concert Hall, which has a surface of 3,500 square meters, that the cele brated Toscanini once led a symphony orchestra in Bee thoven's 9th Symphony, so perfect^ jhi Its acoustical na ture. And it was here that the CFU entourage saw the "hu man fish," the skin of which is similar to the skin of a human being, and the blind cave salamander, known to science as "Proteus Angui nus." This visit over, the return trip to Opatija was made via the villages of St. Peter, Bis trica, Ilirska, Jelsane, Rupa and Matulji. We Compare Governments Tuesday, Aug. 28th, 1956, found the group in Rijeka, Yugoslavia's largest seaport and the most important tran sit center on the Adriatic Sea. Prior to giving the city a typical American and Cana- dian "once-over," the visitors were taken to Rijeka's City Hall for a reception. Mayor Edo Yardas, who resided in Canada for a number of years, did the honors and surprised his guests by welcoming them in both the Croatian and English languages. He also took the visitors on a "Cook's tour" of the Narod ni Odbor (City Council) chambers and explained in de tail how government works in his locale. The Mayor was asked ma ny questions as his guests were comparing the form of government under which they live and that of Yugoslavia. That neither America nor Canada suffered in compari son should go without say ing. Sea, Rail, Air Terminus A strategically important sea, rail and air terminus, Ri jeka since the end of World War II has developed an in tense industrial activity of vi tal importance. Its shipbuilding yards art immense and employ thou sands of people. Its port facilities are ca pable of handling anything that sails the proverbial seven seas, from tramp steamers to the most pa latial of giant ocean liners. Yet Rijeka is also a most interesting cultural center. In fact, it is the home of quite a few museums, libraries, art galleries, etc. Among the most important of these are the Adriatic Institute and th* State Archives Building. Then, too, Rijeka is the ad ministrative and cultural cen ter of the Croatian Littoral and Istria. Other points of interest here are the old City Tower, the Municipal Palace, Chur ches, and the ancient Citadel of Trsat with it# yotiye cha pel. Last Moments As Orertip Climaxing the stay here, and bringing the tour to an end, were two social events in honor of the American and Canadian visitors. One was arranged by the local chapter of "Matica isel jenika Hrvatske" and took place in Opatija's very beauti fully appointed Hotel Slavija. Regaling the guests there wasn't an empty seat in the house was Zagreb song stylist Ivo Robić and His Orchestra. One might say that Mr. Robić is the USA "Guy Mitchell" If Yugoslavia. The other party, which came as a complete surprise to the group, was tendered by the National Offices of the Putnik Travel Agency and held in Opatija's Hotel Kris tal. Coming all the way from Belgrade to look after the so cial ends was .handsome Dan iel Glamoclija, a young man with a profile fit to grace any movie screen. This turned out to be one of those "parting is such sweet sorrow" gatherings. There were brief speeches galore, toasts on all sides, and many a tear was shed as the group which left New York Aug. 2, 1956, was about to break up and take to the hin terlands of Yugoslavia for visits with relatives, friends, and old acquaintances. But all good things must come to an end. And this was it "30" in the parlance of the Fourth Estate. NEXT WEEK: Opatija to Zagreb, via Gorski Kotar, the River Kupa, Delnice, Skrad, Brod na Kupi, Lokve, Crni Lug, etc., the Zagreb International Trade Fair the writer visits na tive villages of relatives the ehat with the United States Con sol in Zagreb the Capital City of Croatia in the eyes of an Amerieaa newspaperman.
