Alabama accepts 5th
invitation to Rose Bowl

   Alabama’s Crimson Tide only unbeaten and untied member of a major football conference will make its fifth journey to the Tournament of Roses to meet California on New Year’s Day.
    The four previous trips brought three victories and one tie. Alabama was the first Southern eleven to represent the East in the Rose Bowl, and has the best record of any Eastern representative.
    Coach Wallace Wade’s 1935 Alabama team gave one of the Bowl’s most sensational performances to wallop Washington 20 to 18. The boys from Dixie were trailing by two touchdowns at the half, but stormed across three touchdowns in the third period for their narrow victory.

W.E. Jacobs suggests
three point plan to
assist employers

   Three points are emphasized by W.E. Jacobs, Manager of the Social Security Board’s Nashville Field Office, observance of which will assist employers in complying with the Federal old-age insurance plan.
    “Our office has received numerous incomplete Forms ss-5, worker applications for account number, filed by employers under authority given in Treasury Regulations,” Mr. Jacobs said. “We cannot assign account numbers because there is insufficient information furnished upon which to make a positive identification of the workers involved.”
    Mr. Jacob’s three points are:
    1. The employer, in failing to require each employee to file application and secure an Account Number, has obligated himself to file for such employee, thus causing himself otherwise unnecessary work.
    2. In failing to secure from his employee sufficient information to permit positive identification he has made it impossible for the board to assign an Account Number.
    3. His employee, from whom tax has been collected, cannot be credited with the amount of wages reported until such time as positive identification of the worker can be established.
