Panel #2 -- “Bob, are your parents entitled to any benefits under social security law?”
“I asked Mom about that the last time I talked to her! I might as well call her and see if Dad looked into it!”
Panel #3 -- “Yes, Mother, Alice and I will be coming up this week end with the children. . .say has Dad done any inquiring at the social security office about. . .”
“That’s what I wanted to tell you, Bob! We got a letter from the district office this morning!”
Panel #4 -- “Your Dad’s down there!”
“Gee that’s swell, Mother. We’ll see you both day after tomorrow and you can tell us all about it!”
Panel #5 -- In the District Office. . .
“Yes, Mr. Aiken. . .you can qualify for benefits in 1956 when you reach 65!”
“I don’t suppose it’ll be very much!”
