On the 45th anniversary of Social Security, much is being written about the difficulties facing Old Age and Survivors Insurance, the best known of several components of Social Security. And if is widely agreed that under existing funding methods and predicted population changes, the prospect of bankruptcy is a danger to be reckoned with. Reckoned with, it will be. This is the reality which takes much of the sting out of the dire predictions. Drastic changes in the original Social Security concept may be necessary. New ways of raising money may be resorted to and benefits juggled. Baring a disaster of unprecedented proportions, however, the monthly checks will keep going out. In the present economic uncertainty it is easy to become anxious over funding that depends en- tirely on contributions by the nation's workers and employers. Expected population decrease and a smaller work force in the years ahead add to the worry. In this regard, it helps some to remember that Social Security was crtated in 1935 in the midst of the greatest economic trauma of this century. I There is no shortage of suggestions for new tund sources. Most of them would explode the myth that Social Security beneficiaries con- tributed enough during their working years to cover the sum of their retirement checks. These proposals should be researched and kept at hand. But there is a less drastic, though more difficult, way out that should first be given an all-out try. The ideal solution to Social Security's funding woes is real economic growth. The villian in the Social Security melodrama is a hybrid of inflation and lagging production. As explained by the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, in its report on Social Security's future, percentage increases in the systems revenue traditionally exceeded the cost of benefit increases because production gains insured that HELLO, UI00ITeD ilglTI01qg?

The Cloverdale Nursery and Gift Shop is a top quality nursery. The staff is always courteous and very knowledgeable, the selection is good and the quality of merchandise is excellent. It is obvious that a lot of TLC and personal creativity goes into this business. After the total lack of pi)fessionalism at shopping center "nur- series," I find the Clover- dale nursery and gift shop a refreshing and relaxing store to visit. It is one business that is worth staying in town for. A Satisfied Customer, Mera P. Vine Cloverdale Letters to the Editor many other socially con- cerned groups and in- dividuals in boycotting all Nestle products because of their dangerously irresponsible advertising practices in underdeveloped countries. Nestle, based in Switzerland, is the world's largest food processor and markets about 70 per- cent of the infant formula. Nestle has expanded its profits in Asia, Latin America and Africa by encouraging women to abandon breast-feeding in favor of "more modern" infant formula. Their methods involve bribing doctors or sending women dressed like nurses into villages with "'free sam- pies." After a week, the mother stops lactating and usually then must purchase the infant formula (costing up to 60 percent of family income) Io feed her baby. To make it stretch further, the formula may be ex- cessively diluted. US IS I00Re00KIIIG II1TeRIlgTlOt00gL L00W! We petll00tlp YOU Do SOIlleTHII00 glBOUT IT!

In a few weeks the baby's health begins to deteriorate from inadequate nourish- ment. High fever and diarrhea may develop.
