Area Receives 119 Million In Social Security Social security benefits were being paid to residents of St. Lawrence County at a rate of $1,572,000 a month at the close of 1970, John P. Moulton, social security district manager in Ogden- sburg has said. A benefit increase signed into law by President Nixon March 17 raises the monthly rate of payment by 10 percent for most of the 16,093 social security beneficiaries in St. Lawrence County. A small number of beneficiaries over age 72 who are not receiving regular social security cash benefits will get a five percent increase. The increased benefit amounts were made effective back to Jan. 1,. First checks in the new monthly rate reached beneficiaries on Jun 3, Moulton said. Separate checks representing the amount of the increase for the months of January through April will be mailed later in June. Of the social security beneficiaries living in St. Lawrence County, 9,098 are retired workers and their dependents. Another 4,393 are receiving benefits as the survivors of workers who have died, and 2,104 are getting benefits as disabled workers or their dependents. Moulton pointed out that although most social security beneficiaries are older people, about one out of every four is under age 60. In St. Lawrence County, 4,531 people under age 60 are collecting social security payments each month. Nearly 2,500 are under age 18, receiving' payments because a working father or mother has died or is getting social security disability or retirement benefits. Most of the 490 beneficiaries in St. Lawrence County between 18 and 22 years of age, are getting students' benefits under a provision in the social security law permitting the continuation of a child'd nrnefits beyond his 18 th birthday, and up to age 22, if the child is attending school full time. Also in this 18-22 age group are some other types of beneficiaries, illustrating the broad family protection that the social security program provides workers of all ages. A number of children of retired, disabled, or deceased workers who became disabled before they reached 18 and who will probably never be able to work and become self-supporting. The monthly benefits of these young people, severely handicapped by physical or mental disabilities, will continue indefinitely. Benefits are also payable to their mothers if the disabled son or daughter is in the mother's care. Moulton said that another relatively small but significant group of youthful social security beneficiaries are those who are receiving benefits as disabled workers. Social security disability payments can be paid to a person who becomes disabled for work even if he has less than five years of work under social security. As little as V/z years of work is required in the case of a worker who becomes disabled before age 24. Local 503, United Paperworkers and Papermakers, AFL-CIO, went on strike several weeks ago when the Acco Company reopened negotiations on a wages and benefits package.

Says Court Ruling Won't Affect Diocesan Schools Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling on aid to private and parochial schools will not affect any present aid received by Catholic schools in the Diocese of Ogdensburg, according to a chancery official. The Supreme Court barred Monday provision of states supplementing teachers' salaries in non-public schools. According to Father Lawrence Deno, assistant superintendent of schools for the Diocese, the ruling would not affect bus transportation, medical services, textbooks or other mandated services, now received by local parochial schools. Father Deno noted that the Speno- Lerner bill, which would have provided aid to parents of non-public school children, would not have been delcared unconstitutional. However, that bill was kept in committee by the New York Legislature. Father Deno said that the bill signed by Governor Rockefeller last -Friday may possibly be declared un- constitutional. That bill, the Secular Educational Services Act, would provide direct aid to pupils in non-public schools. Father Deno also noted that the Court's ruling affected only direct aid to non-public schools. The fate of the present state parochial aid law, he in- dicated, was uncertain.

Great Lakes Gets Second Ice Breaker By Esther Van Wagoner Tufty Washington Correspondent Washington - The Great Lakes will get a second icebreaker to lengthen the navigation season of the St. Lawrence- Seaway, Congressman John Blatnik, D-| Minn., chairman of the House Public Works Committee, announced'today. The U.S. Coast Guard has requested; the Department of Transportation for $3' million to construct the new vessel of the* type of. the MACKINAW which alone last- winter tackled the ice conditions of the\ Great Lakes. The request is now going through the appropriation process. In existence, but not used during the last winter season, is ah old polar ice breaker, EDISTO, now in the Boston \ harbor. This will be put into operation for three years beginning with the 1971 season in addition to the MACKINAW.

Both actions are the result of recent ; Seaway conferences and a request from;. Sen. Philip Hart, D-Mich., who made the formal request to Secretary of Tfan^ sportation John Volpe about 10 days ago.
