B. C. Trammell, district manager, said that the new vehicle color and markings are part of the United Telephmte System's corporate identification program which is being adopted by member companies nation- wide. The new color, termed United Utilities gold, was formulated by DuPont especially for the United System. "It is a very pleasing, yet distinctive color and can be described as a yellow gold," Trammell said. The new color was developed and selected because of ira visabflity, durabilRy, favorable reactions to year-round weather environments, and low cost maintenance qualities. "h-ammell said that company trucks and station wagons will have distinctive markings, in- cluding a three-color stripe across the truck door. The stripe has two shades of green with a reflective orange stripe in the middle. Automobiles will not have the stripe, but will carry other company identification. "The change to the new color will be accomplished by vehicle replacement and additions which will take about five years. Repainting of existing cars and trucks is not contemplated. S S *Questions by THOMAS F. GUY Tyler District Manag Towboats Are Coming moves up the Trinity multi- purpose channel. Riverboats of all kind hold a romantic fasci- nation for people of all ages. You can be sure that the toot of the towboat will bring crowds to the waterway. But the big- ger "toot," of course, comes in the form of many great bene- fits, including low-cost trans- portatiou, flood control and re- creation. We are apt to forget that a- bout 50 miles of the Trinity Ca- nal have been built. We are talking about Lake Livingston. on the Trinity main stem. Tow- boats and barges will follow a channel through the heart of the reservoir. Also, the Trinity Ri- vex Authority has built an earthen embankment, or tie-in, for lock 5-B at the Livingston Dam. Now the navigation lock can be built without having to lower the level of the lake. Social Security Administration Q--I am 19 and have not worked under social security as I had polio at the age of 10. My fa- ther died recently and I am wondering if I am eligible for any benefits? A--You many possibly qualify for disability benefits on your father's record. You will need to apply to establish whether you are eligible. The general re- quiremnts are that you are un- married and have disability that began before age 8. Q-How much will I get from social security? A--The answ*er to this question is net at all simple hKause, as you have probably noted, we pay retirement, disability and survivors benefits, and too, we pay different categories of peo- ple. In order to get a meaning- ful amwer to this question, I would suggest you call your nearest Social Security Office and give them the facts in your particular case. Q--I get social security checks as a widow. I'm plancdng to b ,married soon. Will my chec istp? A--Not if you are over 60, but you must report the marriage The amount of your rheck mal change. Also if you're 62 De older, you might be entitled to a check on your new husband's rocord and we'll look into that for you. Send your question to P. O. Box Tyler, Texas 75701.

Terry St. Phone 48%0512 People all up and down the Trinity are getting ready for navigation. They have seen from the new Arkansas water- way that (1) it can be done, and (2) it will bring tremendous benefits -- permanent benefits -- while enhancing the total en- vironment. Towns and com- munities along the Trinity are beginning to talk about river ports. The 100-year-old Trinity dream just has to be moving toward reality. As announced some time ago, Trinity River Authority is mak- ing plans for a far-reaching wa- ter quality management pro- gram to clean up the Trinity. James L. Strawn, TRA's pro- jects development manager, will have the help of an advis- ory committee composed of the best water quality men in the state. The personnel of the committee will be announced soon. More rains the past week in the Dallas-Fort Worth area should mean higher water for Lake Livingston in a matter of a few days. The latest rains --at least some of them -- fell on a soaked watershed, resulting in high runoff. Livingston needs a- bout five more feet of water to reach normal pool level. Also, the fish population has increas- ed to the point that our finny friends need more room. Derwood Jones, landscape architect for the Corps of En- gineers, Fort Worth, is one of the better amateur photograph- ers of the river basin. Using telescopic lens, Jones got some remarkable closeups of the birds at Sand Pond slough, near Palestine. Some of his better shots adorn the wall in his of- rice. Old fiver ferries on the Tri- nity provide one of the more interesting chapters in the his- tory of the Trinity. As a native of Palestine, I heard much a- bout Wildcat Ferry and Magno- lia Ferry, also Bonner's Ferry. Although these old crossings long have disappeared from the scene, the memory of them is well preserved in history as well as in the minds of those who used them. 20 YEARS AGO The City Council of the City of Malakoff voted in favor of a new water rate increase which will raise the minimum of $2.25 for the first 2,000 gallons to a minimum monthly rate of $2.75, and at the same time add an extra 1,000 gallons to the min- imum rate figure. The rate on the next 5,000 gallons over the minimum will be raised from 50c per thousand to 75c per thousand gallons. Gallonage over the 8,000 figure will be in- creased from 35c to 50c.
