Transcript 12th Award WANTS TO MAKE IT VOLUNTARY PLAN To the Shreveport Times: Should Social Security be voluntary? Yes! In private insurance, the terminal reserve of a company is the trust fund from iv Itieli all benefits lo policy-holders are paid. If company officials allow even one penny of tbat fund to be used for other purposes, they are declared insolvent, are put out of business and the executives will be subject to heavy pen- allies by law. Our governmenl has spent lhe millions of dollars collected for Social Security. Therefore, Seeeietl Security is nol backed by terminal reserve, bul by 1.0.1 .'s. Compulsory "Social Security" is unconstitutional, deprives me of choosing my own insurance company, and of spending my earnings as I see fit. Many people have had to drop insurance paid on For years, which cove-reel more, just because of compulsory "Social un-Security." Mrs. /.. 1/. Brook Rt. 1, Rox ill). De Ridilcr.

Why nut organize (with lhe succession oF authority clearly understood) Ihe men of the small towns and rural areas. particularly, who are least likely In >uf- fir from air attacks?

We. eill know individuals who have the attitude of getting the most for the least. Such an attitude slowly, but surely destroys tin- moral fiber of its possessor. The idea of getting something fur noth- ing is as corrosive as cancer. Pajje 64 Conversely, tbe person who gives his employer the best he has. nol onl) contributes to his employer's success, but peivcs the way for his own success. \u incontestable law of life' is those who give lhe most get the mosl.
