In Assembly Meetings

Members of the UK faculty and

staff are eligible for Social Security
coverage and benefits according to
word received Monday from the
Federal Security Administration in
Washington, by Dean Elvis J. Stahr,
of the Law College, from R. Campbell Van Sant. counsel to the Kentucky Department of Economic Security.
"We thought we had been under
Social Security all the time." Dean
Stahr said, "but when the question
came up a few months ago, it was
referred to Washington for final
settlement."
"There is really no change," he
continued, "except that all questions
have been removed."
(
Last July the Federal Security
Commissioner had tentatively ruled
that UK staff, members mere no
elicible for Social Security in spite
of the fact that the attorney-generof Kentucky ruled in 1951 that the
plan is

not a retirement system.
President Herman L. Donovan
said last summer that originally,
the federal agency took the position that the state's attorney general's ruling should govern and the
Social Security tax should be withheld for all employees. The ruling
was complied with, and the tax was
withheld for all employees from Jan.
1. 1951. to July 1. 1952.
After Dr. Donovan met with various state officials last summer, it
was decided to appeal the case to
Washington for a final ruling and
to continue to withhold the tax until that time.
A hearing on the appeal was held
in Lexington last month, and the
decision this week came as a result
of that hearing. Dean Stahr empha-

The Christmas Story

n

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar
Augustus, that all the uorld should be taxed.
And all went to be taxed, every one into his ou n city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Xazareth, into Judea,
unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem.
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being, great with child.
i
lnd so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that
she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in stvaddling
clothes, and laid him in a manger; becaiise there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord
shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
.' And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, 1 bring you good tidings
of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is bom this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ
the Lord.
Aiul this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host
praising Gol, and saying,
Glory to Cod in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven,
the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see
tliis thing which is to come pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying
in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which teas
told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by
the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

Humorist Does A Kindly Sketch
Of The Average Letter Writer
Campus letter writers seem to have hit a temporary lull. The only written contact we had with
readers this week was a letter from one student
who laments the campus parking situation. This
lack of reader expression brought to mind a dissertation by the late humorist, Finley Peter Dunne:
"No wan ivr writes to an iditor to sav, That

I didn't mean to eavr sdrop. But I overheard my
folks talking the last time I was home. Talking
about . . . oh, alxmt Christmas when they were
first married, the big tree they cut down on the
farm, the family party to decorate it. About the
dear, funny little presents they gave each other.
Christmas isn't like that any more.
These days, Thanksgiving is the signal to put
up municipal street decorations lights, evergreens,
grinning Santa Clauses. Even then, stores have
been featuring Christmas decorations and slogans
for a couple of weeks. And almost eevry newspaper and magazine ad is "slanted" for the "holiday trade."
Every radio program is Christmas, Christmas,
Christmas. Get this, get that, buy this, buy that.

On the last day before the Christmas holidays
you
Find the suitcase that was packed wlien you
came here won't expand enough to hold the things
you've collected since then;
Try to locate that guy from your home town you
knew in high school who's going to drive back;
e
Can't find him and end up checking your
two minutes lefore the train is due to leave;
And, if you're a commuter, you go home as usual.
