Benton County
Welfare Work
Given to 351 Folk
State Has No “Old Age
Pension” System; Pay
‘ ments are Small
Recently there have been many
expressions of intelligent commun
ity interest in the work of the Ben
ton County Welfare Department.
3 or particular interest to old folks
of this county is the fact that no
person is now receiveing an “Old
Age Pension." The term “Old Age
Pension" has been used in connec
tion with various National and local
movements such as the Townsend
Plan. These various plans specify
that any person who reaches a cer-‘
tain age of retirement is entitled ton
a pension; based on the theory that
the government owes the individual‘
a “living” after the individual as a
certain age has retired from active
employment, writes Fern Massie,
Acting Administrator of Benton
County Welfare Department.
Under the existing Law in
Washington—“ Any person in need
of assistance, 65 years of age or
over. having resided in the State
for five out of the last 10 years and
continuously for the year immed-‘
lately preceding application. is}
eligible for Old Age Assistance.
There has been much controversy
over the question of what consti
tutes need, but at present it must
be interpreted as need of such
basic items as food, clothing and
shelter. It follows that if any of
these items can be supplied through
relatives, owning own home. etc.,:
that the need does not exist. ‘
At present 351 persons In Benton;
County are receiving a total of 87.5
838.00 monthly in Old Age Assist-‘
ance grants. This is an average
grant of $22. The state average is
$23.33 per month. ‘
questions asked regarding only one
program under the Social Security
Department. As this explanation is
about Old Age Assistance, the com
munity should remember that therel
are other integral parts of the workl
now carried by the Bentcn County‘
Welfare Department, including: Aid‘
to Blind; Child Welfare Service, i.e..
Crippled Children, Aid to Depend-l

broken up. although there was no
particular loss.
The robbers, who evidently had
taken plenty of time, pried into
the safe and scattered stuff all
about the place. .
The burglars not only failed to
get any money, not being able to
get into the strong box inside the
safe. but they passed up a diamond
safe, by one of the railroad em
ployees. The ring was wrapped in
a paper and was found in the debris
the next morning. The diamond
was missing, however, but further
search revealed it in the trash
which littered the floor.
