County Official Describes
Failure Of Old Age Pensions

A sidelight on the much-discussedI
Townsend Old Age Recovery plan was
given recently in a description of the
failure that has greeted the Michigan
old age pension plan as it has been
put into effect in Washtenaw County.
Mrs. Blanche Seabolt, member of
the county old age pension commis-
sion, and the county clerk recently re-
leased figures showing how the plan
is functioning. With the complete in-
adequacy of the head tax to supply
funds, according to Mrs. Seabolt, the
county commission has been able only
to continue payments on the few pen-
sions that were being paid last year,
and has been able to conduct no fur-
ther investigations into the number of
undoubtedly urgent cases which exist..

investigations when there is no money

Pension Rate Low
Approximately $1,800 of the $10,-
034 collected so far is used in the
distribution of monthly payments to,
those persons over 70 years of age
whose applications for pensions have
been granted. The average sum going'
to each of these persons, and on
which they are presumably expected
to subsist for a month, is $10. This
affords an interesting contrast to the
$200 a month which the Townsend
plan proposes, and shows clearly why
that plan is becoming very popular
in this county.
When in addition it is taken into
consideration that the Washtenaw
county group has been credited by the
Michigan old age pension commission,
according to Mrs. Seabolt, with ren-
dering highly efficient service and
having an extremely low overhead,
the situation in other parts of the
state and the corresponding amount
of popular sentiment in favor of such
an at least apparently plausible plan
as the Townsend scheme is easily
Funds Exhausted
The state appears to be at a dead
loss as to where the pensions they
have legislated shall come from. The
poll tax was proved economically
sound and the problem of funds was
considered unimportant as compared
with administration at the outset of
the program, but now, while in some
places the administration costs more
for a county than the amount of pen-
sions issued, no alternative solution
has been considered, she said.
Mrs. Seabolt's suggestion as to

people were killed, approximately
$10,000,000 damage accrued, and for
the only day during the entire war,
on Saturday, March 23, 1918, the
City of Paris completely shut down
its business activity - all as a result
of these "Paris guns."
With the tubing on these guns
measuring 98 feet, powder used cap-
able of 70,000 pounds pressure, shells
weighing 228 pounds shot out by a
force of 2,000,000 pounds pressure,
these "Paris guns" have never been
equalled by any of the Allied pow-
ers, according to Colonel Miller.
where money was to come from to
continue the present system of pen-
sions when the head tax fund runs
out, as it inevitably will, having no
income, is to divert a certain portion
of the liquor tax money to the sup-
port of the aged. Turning some of
these funds from the support of the
schools to the payment of old age
pensions would, -she believes, solve
the problem, and cause no further
difficulty in so doing. The head tax,
she says, is absolutely dead, and
something must take its place.

iect pasteurization calls for heating
the milk to a temperature of at least
142 degrees Fahrenheit for not less
than 30 minutes. After heating, an
ordinance provides it must be imme-
diately cooled t not more than 50
degrees and held that low until deliv-
ery to the consumer.
Mr. Barnum explained that all op-
erations after the milk has been put
into the heater are mechanical, in-
cluding cooling, bottling and capping.
An automatic temperature recorder
is attached to the heater and the
charts checked regularly by the City
Milk Inspector.
Samples are taken from each
dairy's supply after it has been placed
on the wagons and bacteriological
tests made to determine the efficiency
of the dairy. Records of the tempera-
ture charts and the bacteriological
tests enable Mr. Barnum to prevent
contamination of the milk supply once
it has reached the dairy's hand.
Will be treated fair and square.
