OPEN HOUSE The Coldspring Methodist WSCS is giving a housewarming for the Robbie Loves' new home on Sunday, April 38, between the hours of and p.m. The public is cordially in- vited. Hundreds of East Texans are in a better position financially because of a change in the social security 'earnings test' ac- cording to District Manager L. H. James. The revised test is one of a number of changes Included in the Social Security Amendments of 1967. James explained that most people receiving social security monthly benefits are limited in the amount they can earn with- out affecting their benefits.The limitation applies to children and young wives and widows, as well as retired people. But there are special rules for tl-ose who are disabledandtlielimita- tion is dropped for people over 72 years of age. The earnings test works by balancing the amount of benefits an individual receives in a year against the amount of Ms earn- ings for the same year. If the earnings are no more than 51680, social security benefits are not affected at all. If earn- ings for the year the amount of social secruity benefits is reduced the higher the earnings, the more the re- duction. If the earnings are be- tween and the total amount of benefits for the year is reduced by for each of earnings above Above the reduction is dollar for dollar for each earned, in benefits is withheld. James explained, "there is a kind of 'King's X' rule which protects the bene- fit payments whenever current earnings are relatively small. Regardless of the total amount you earn in a yearj no benefits will be withheld for any month in which you do not earn over in wagesorarenotactively self-employed. 'Under these new provisions people will be able to qualify foratleastpartialsocial security benefits while continu- ing to earn substantial amounts. For this reason it is very im- portant for people nearing re- tirement age to talk over their situation-.vith us, of whether they intend to stop work. "To make it easier for work- ing people to visit our office, it is open on Saturday morn- ings from a.m. to noon. We urge the public to take ad- vantage of this extra service time."

Research at Redstone Arsenal Scientists Study 3-Dimensional Photos The strain of a long, hard-fought buttle with a North Vietnamese battalion finally shows on the faces of a 101st Airborne Division company commander and his radio opera- tor. by Earl VanAlstinc) Capt. James Brown focuses a laser beam before making a picture taken without a a HAWK missile model. Captain Brown is a U.S. Army Missile Com- mand scientist from Wilmington, Bel. REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. (ANF) U.S. Army ndf'iiHs here arc using las- er see around corn- ers. It's part of their research into the possibility of using three dimensional photo- graphs for data storage. The pictures are known as "holo- a whole picture tak- en without a lens. Scientists at the Army missile Command's Research and Development Director- ate want to use holograms to store information on tiny light-sensitive crystals. Capt. James Brown, a sci- entist in the directorate's Physical Sciences Labora- tory, explains why: "Since the crystal has n third di- mension, it has a lot more material available for re- cording information than a two-dimensional film sur- face." Unlike a conventional photograph, a hologram is not a picture of It appears as a meaningless blur because it is actually a picture of light waves re- fleeted by an object that has been illuminated by a highly intense stream of light, called a laser beam. To reconstruct this holo- gram, the laier beam again is used, this time to illumin- ate the hologram itself. An observer then sees the pic-' ture in three dimensions, aa though he were viewing the real object through a win- dow. Hidden background 'ob- jects can be viewed by mov- ing the head to one side, so that, in effect, a hologram lets the viewer see around corners. The eyes must be re- focused when they are shift- ed from the background to the foreground of the holo- gram. 'The Bible" Set For Special Performance At Livingston's Scheduled Fain Theater Direct from its roadshow en- gagement, 20th Century -Fox's presentation of Dino De Laurentiis' motion picture, "The will be presented for five days beginning Sunday and continuing through Thurs- day at the FAIN THEATRE in Livingston with special popular prices in special scheduled per- formances. Every ticket holder will be guaranteed a seat, though there will be no reserved seats. There will be two per- formances on Sunday: and p.m. Monday through Thursday there will be one per- formance nightly beginning at pjn. Directed by John Huston, with a screenplay by Christopher Fry, -The Bible' is the first film to tell in continuous sequence the stories of The Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the Flood, ,The Tower of Babel, the 'Destruction of Sodom and the Saga of Abraham. The cast of the film includes George C. Scott as Abraham; Ava Gardner as Sarah; Stephen Boyd as Nimrod, King of Babel; Richard Harris as Cain; Peter O'Toole as the Angel of Uie Lord; ,lohn Huston as Noah; Michael Parks as Adam. The film also introduces Ulla Hcrgryd as Eve. In bringing Ihe Bible to the screen, De Laurentiis, Huston and Fry were determined from the outset to avoid set patterns of past Biblical films that were conceived only with isolated stories. Their goal was to portray Biblical text and characters with fidelity and in the hope that the story of man- kind's beginnings would liave significance for people of the modern world. Because of the subject and the tremendous scope of the production, Producer De Laurentiis had his staff of creative artists working for three years on the research and writing before even a camera turned. He surrounded himself with some of the world's fore- most artists and technical ex- perts, all of whom made sure that wtet went on the screen was actually part of the Good Book and not simply a script- writer's dream. The tremendous size and scope of this production can best be judged from a descrip- tion of its background sets, without doubt the most stupend- ous ever designed and con- structed for any motion picture. Among the seventy-seven sets used in this mammoth under- taking are: thelargestboatever built for a film, a reproduction of the world's first skyscraper, 'a garden that everyone knows about but no one can describe, temples, palaces, encampments and a mined city tliat is terrify- ing in its realism. EDITORIAL Business? MOMENT OF SUPREME TEMPTATION' Michael Parks as and L'lla Hergryd as "Eve" show the original sin, one of the many outstanding scenes to be found in "The first attempt by movie cameras to show Creation as it is described in the Book of Genesis. "The Bible" will be presented five days beginning Sunday and continuing through Thursday at the Fain Theatre in Liv- ingston. All those engaged in retail trade should carefully consider the effect pari mutuel horse- race betting could liavc on legitimate business in their communities. Proponents of pari mutuel betting claim that it will stimulate business in Texas. But the record in other states shows, on the con- trary, tint many businesses suffer after horse- race gambling is legalized. It is not difficult to understand why retail stores should experience decreases in time payments, increases in bad checks, and slump- ing sales during the racing season. Business real business fills a need. Horserace betting produces nothing of value. It does not feed, clothe, house or transport people. Profits from pari mutuel horserace betting do not go back into the community. They go into the hands of the people who arc able to finance a race track. On the other hand, horserace gambling re- duces the disposable income of families who would otherwise spend more for useful pro- ducts and services. Pari mutuel horserace betting, proposed in the referendum on May 4 ballot, will drain away wages, savings and investments from Texas business into enterprises which serve no human need Local business firms cannot even hope to supply equipment to the race tracks. iNearly all the mechanical and electronic equipment needed must be rented from one firm. It cannot be purchased. Senator Estes Kefauver wrote in his book, CHIME I.N AMERICA, 'Whenever gambling is allowed to exist, legally or illegally, money is taken out of normal and legitimate channels of commerce, and when gambling is minimized, leRitimate business flourishes." There is abundant evidence to support this statement. Gambling is bad business. Gambling is bad for business. To keep Texas businessgoodjkeepparimutuel horserace betting out of Texas. Vote against the pari mutuel horserace Ix'tUnt; referendum on May 4.
