Monday morning Judge Arthur
Torbert entered upon his fourth
term as probate judge of Morgan
county. The term of the probate

islies the present term Judge Tor
bert will have served longer than
any other probate judge in the his
tory of this county. The late David

The fact that Judge Torbert has
been elected four times, and twice

The President Also Spoke
BY DB, CHARLES STELZLB
President Lincoln was beginning his address at the dedication
of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, but the crowd was so in
tent upon applauding and congratulating Edward Everett, the fa
mous orator who had preceded him, that they missed the opening
words of the speaker.
The next day the newspapers published long stories of the meet
ing. giving a commendatory report of Everett's address. But in
most cases the newspaper accounts ended with the simple state
ment: "The President also spoke."
Americans have little noted nor long remembered what Everett
said there. His ''brilliant" speech has long since been forgotten,
but it is already clear that the world will never forget what Lin
coln did there. His less than three hundred wofds have become
known as one of the world's greatest speeches.
Between his opening statement that "our fathers brought forth
on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated
to the proposition that all men are created equal," and his closing
plea that "this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of free
dom: and that government of the people, by the people, for the
people, shall not perish from the earth," he asked his audience to
pledge themselves to a new dedication which would demonstrate
that ''these dead shall not have died in vain."
He etched indelibly upon world history and literature as clear,
as lucid, as understanding a statement of what Americans have
lived and died for, as has ever been uttered.
Back of Lincoln's speech, and his warrant for it, was nearly a
Century of history which tried men's souls and cost the lives of
many thousands. In the face of the perils that now confront
America, Lincoln's earnest plea persistently rings in our ears.
"The President also spoke."
And he Is still shaking.

CONCERNING $40 PER MONTH
FOR AID FOR THE AGED
"T.
5
"W. McChw,
chief of the di­
vision of aid for the aged, has
sued a letter concerning the law
which went into effect Jan. 1, 1941,
which authorizes to pay a maximum
of $40 per month to needy aged
persons who have passed their 65tit
birthday, and who meet all other
legal requirements of eligibility. He
points out that' |t is ^mistaken,
idea that all persons who have
passed their 65th birthday, and are
entitled to aid, are to receive $40
per month. The aid, he states,
based on need now, just the same
as it was when it first became a
law in 19 36. Mr. McCaw says that
It is impossible both financially and
legally to pay recipients of aid for
the aged $40 maximum awards. He
goes on to state that Vithout any
increase in the number of persona
on the aid for the aged rolls a flat
$40 per months to each recipient
during the present biennium would
cost the state and federal govern
ment, $65,000,000 each, or almost
twice as much as the cost of the
program during the last biennium.
It is not intended to indicate, he
says, that there will be no increase
in awards during the present bien
nium. There will be many increag*
es, but they will be based upon in
vestigations Into the personal needv
of individuals, and states that be
tween 10 and 15 percent of all re
cipients will receive increase in the
awards as the result of the nev
law.
Mr. McCaw emphasizes the point
that the principle known as the
"needs,*" is the basis for aid for the
aged awards, now, just the same ae
has been since the law went inte
effect.
