WEDNESDAY, JAN.  4,   1967   10c  large number of Pensioners on the Peninsula, The Times* this week' publishes a  comprehensive outline of the Federal Government's Guaranteed Income Program.  ���In 1967, the Guaranteed Income Supplement will provide up to $30 a month or  $360 a year. ^  ���lAfter 1967,^ the amount payable will  be up to 40 per cent of the Old Age Security Pension This will mean that the supplement will be escalated automatically  when any increases are made in the old-  prove ahardship to a number of pensioners.  Because of this options 6�� alternative ways  of calculating' income 'have been provided  which could be more1 favorable to the applicant.  OPTION  The first option applies to the pensioner  who retired in the year prior to. the. year  In which he is applying for supplement.  If loo option were provided,'his income in  that? year might be such'that he would not  age security pension because of changes    qualify for supplement. Thus   pensioners  in the Pension Index arising from increases    ????*��* *��f supplement in 1987 may elect  V  in the cost of living.  FULL BENEFIT  ���Pensioners who have no income other  than their Old Age Security pension will  receive a guaranteed income benefit of  $1260 for single pensioners, and $2520 for  married pensioners. This is made up of a  $900 pension and a $360 income supplement for each pensioner.  PARTIAL BENEFIT  ;4-Pensioners;. whp have some income,  supft as-a small-pension or part-time employment, may receive a. benefit ranging  '���fr&xjS $912 tollpl' yeaf.lTnis is made  up. of the $900 pension and an income supplement ranging up to $360 a year. This  applies in the case of:  '4-a single pensioner whose, income, including Old, Age Security pension, is less  thaijt $1620 ayear;  4-married pensioners whose combined  income including their Old Age Security  pensions, is less than $3240 a year/  The:tule used to determine the amount  of; supplement provides that the maximum  supplement of $30 a month is reduced by  one-dollar for each two full dollars of the  pensioner's income. A schedule showing, the  rates of supplementation in addition to the  $75 a month old age security pension is  appended.  DETERMINATION   OF   INCOME  4-Urider the Guaranteed Income Supplement, income is determined in the same  way as under the Income Tax Act.-��  -i-Incomc for this purpose as for Income  .-,, Tax,ipurposes does not include, socjal assistance payments from the federal, provincial or municipal governments; War Veterans Allowances or Civilian War .Allowances :> the Dependents Parents Pension; Dis-  abatity or Widows Pensions based on war  service; private disability insurance payments; Workmen's Compensation; or Unemployment Insurance benefits; support  or gifts from relatives or organizations;  money drawn from savings or received  from selling any possessions or investments.  ���Income under Guaranteed Income  Program does not include old age security  pension, the supplement itself or any  similar payment under a provincial law.  tO have their income in 1967 from earnings r  from employment or self-employment and  from their pension derived as a result of  retirement, substituted for the income of  these items in 1966.  The other option-is provided for pensioners who retire in the year in which  they apply for benefit Under it a person  who retires during the course of a year  may claim a supplement for that same  year if his income aftSr' retirement is  small, A person wbo fte��sef employment or  ceases to carry 6vX a; biiiiness may elect  to have his inconie from 'that employment  ,<0R:ifjp0m.v!.tb4fe  computation of hjs incomes for that year,  arid to have the income that remains substituted for bis' income in the preceding  year in deternldriing his .Supplement. At the  same time, tffe amount of any CPP or private pension, that*.he wojild receive in a  12-month period following his retirement  will be substituted for his income from  15*  ��      It  Banana belt  Ujose pensions;in that year in arriving at   SEVENTY degrees!

MARRIED  PENSIONERS  Half the combined total income of a  married couple is taken as the income of  each . individual married applicant- For  example, a couple with $2500 combined income will be regarded as having $1250 income each. This approach gives more  equitable treatment between persons who  are single and those who are married.  MARITAL STATUS  Marital status depends on whether or  not the applicant for a supplement was  married on the last day of the preceding  Where a pensioner's marital status  changes during the course of a year, recognition of this change may be requested. It  is to be expected that such requests will  be only in those cases where it is to the  advantage of the applicant.  TRANSITIONAL  PROGRAM  The Joint Committee on the House and  Senate on the Canada Pension Plan recommended that some provision be made to  assist those who could not benefit at all  or. only to a limited extent from the Canada Pension Plan.

However, if the pensioner has other income but it is less than  $720 a year ($60 a month) the pensioner still qualified for a  supplement but on a reduced scale depending on his other  income.  Every Old Age Security Pensioner is thus guaranteed a minimum income of $105 a month.

If you haven't tried square dancing be  fore, now is the time to make a new year's  resolution to attend a learners' dub and  follow through to become a top square dancer.  Most of the small clubs open their doors  to beginners for the first two nights of  the second half of the square dance season to take in the good people" who^wouid  like to get started sooner. So, with this in  mind, the first square-dance of the new  year will be held at the Hopkins Hall, Jan.  7, 1967, 8:30 p.m., refreshments supplied.  You hosts will be the Gibsons Squarehad-  ers, your caller vjyiH be that, congenial  Harry Robertson, and will be an evening  of fun for all. ��  Your next square dance on the Secheit  Peninsula will be at the St. Hilda's Church  Hall, Jan. 14, 1967, 8:30 p.m., your hosts  will be the Secheit Promenaders, your  caller, Squaringly, Yours, so. why not come  Out and swings :c^ei:;or2:two.    ...

Eighty local students  ready for Expo Safari  EIGHTY students "from Elpbinstone and  Pender Harbour Secondary Schools have  expressed a desire to attend Expo 67 in  Montreal during the summer, not eight as  was reported in the last issue of %The  Times.  Students fr.dm grade eight up arid adult  sponsors' will cariip at a site which will  provide tents, commissary, cooking facilities, medical and dental facilities.

The Department of National  Revenue will check income data received  under this program with information obr  tained under the Income Tax Act.  A simplified application form designed  for this program will be used rather than  using the regular income tax return. These  applications, together "with a small booklet explaining the program, will be sent  'toA'aU-.old.age^sec^rity'...pensibners early "in  the new year.  The first payments of the supplement  will be made in March.  It will not  be  possible to get all these payments .out an  March but it is expected that the balance  will be sent out in April. Payments will  be retroactive so that those getting their  first cheque in March would get the supplement for three months, January, February   and  March,   along  with  their  $75  ��� old age security pension for March. Those  receiving their first cheque in April will  get the  supplement- for- four months  together with their April old  age  security  pension. After this initial backlog of payments has been cleared  away,  the  program will be sending out cheques regularly  -....oijjfa monthly basis.  The legislation contains provision for  appeals against decisions with respect to  eligibility for and to the amount of benefit  under the program.  NEED A CAR?

' ..   ���John Atkins  Beware fast Buckers  ._-,. ���,������_.,' * ��� ��� ��� , -^ ������  FROM time io time newspapers attempt a representative of a publishing company  to acquaint the puolic with the fact which puts out a. magazine referred to as  that only too many door-rto-door sales- the official publication of a national or-  nyen are out to make a killing, working on ganization. Equipped with a letter written,  the age-old assumption that a sucker'is on stationery of the local branch  and  born every minute. In .actual fact, a brief  survey carried out among householders,  and business people, provides ample  grounds to .suspect that two a minute  would be nearer the mark. l  The fast-talking, high-pressure, seller  of high priced junk is not too common  any longer. Instead, it has become necessary to. change to a new pitch with the  implementation of various gimmicks Imd  dubious sales pitches. In other words the  same old racket under a. new guise.  Our modern day pirate is usually  softly spoken and armed with a letter of  introduction conned from a gullible official or "supposed responsible member of  a well known organization. ;t"\.      " ''  A minute number of these operators  are selling a genuine article, most of them  are simply out for the fast buck, and indeed, encounter little difficulty in the  process..  The old time sharp operator at xme  time concentrated his dubious activities  upon the housewife who only too frequently found herself signed up to purchase high priced appliances of inferior  quality, on a long term contract which  together with carrying charges created a  terrifying burden upon the limited family  budget. Considerable heartbreak and;  family upset was caused by these morons  but due to publicity in the press, the racket  is no longer an easy pushover. !  : The easy money boys are still active  but the locale has changed from the  kitchen to the business section, and from  ap reports the transition has proved  lucrative.  Latest in the area was a fast talk by  signed by, its president, the friendly salesman had little difficulty in selling a large  number of subscriptions at $12v for-three  years. Whether one in ten will ever give  the publication more than a passing  glance, is a. matter of some doubt. One  merchant has v^good reason to express  anger for he was under the impression  he had actually taken out membership in  the local Organization.  Another one who has made rather  more than a killing, in fact he has taken  some thousands of dollars away with him,  was armed with a letter of approval  signed by L. J. Wallace, chairman of the  Provincial Centennial Committee.  His story to The. Times was that as  a resident of California and a free lance  writer, he was compiling a feature on the  Peninsula for a Centennial magazine. The  bite when it came to light was that he was  more interested in selling high priced advertising than in any historical background of the area.  The value of such advertising is at  best questionable. Yet the number of,  merchants, business people and motel  operators who paid up to $100 or more  for a small ad in the publication', is quite  fantastic. .  The gimmicks are many and varied  and the. utmost caution is urged. One resort owner calmly parted with $47 as a  down payment oh picture cards of his  resort, and has seen no sign since of either  cards'brsalesrrian: This is; not an isolated  case, and merely helps point out the need  to be on guard against the con-man  brigade.'.  ���fr^Vv^'-Vi'-i1'!

Young hostesses for the evening, Linda  Barendregt, Dianne Beck and Susan Gibson fully qualified for their 'hostess badges  during an evening of games, skits and carol  singing, sharpening young appetites for  the lavish array of Christmas fare.  Canary Patrol presented'a skit portraying a harassed guide leader, which had  been most carefully prepared and was excellently presented.

Canadian pioneer with oyer 90  jtearsresidence' in Canada is'Mr. Melvin  Wiser who was born at Cooper's Falls,  Muskoka, Qntarid on Nov. 15, 1872. Mr.  Wiser never attended school for. a day in  his life and started working in the woods  at an early age. When a neighbor, Chris  Rattan, brought home a young school  teacher as his bride, Mrs. Wiser and some  of the other mothers of Cooper's Falls  agreed to pay her 50 cents a month to  teach their children to read.  Mel Wiser had only reached words of  three letters when the Rattans moved,  away, but he perserveced with his reading, inspired largely by his passion for  detective stories. Mel would go .off,to the  lonely logging camps armed with a generous supply of Old King Brady and Nick  Carter detective stories, published at that  time at a price of five cents. He writes  a good letter, having taught himself to  "���%rite^!wim"'i'"cOpy:'''"''books. ,,������.,,./���..,,,-.,,  "The untimely death of his" father .left his  mother widowed with 14 children, of whom.  Mel was tfii ^eldest: He devoted much of  his life to looking after his mother and  helping to raise his brothers and sisters.  .... MeX. Wiser., logged in many parts of  jOrSario and he worked for the Spanish  River Lumber Company and became foreman of their camp located 35 miles behind  M^ssey. This was a most sought after  ppst because camp, foreman in those days  were supplied 'free with clothes and tobacco. *''''���'.���''  He hejdi this position for nine years  and says be" certainly did hot get" it because of his educational advantages but  rather pn,^ his reputation for sobriety.

He has lived in Halfmoon, Bay for. the past 11, years.
