Looking Back to 1941: Old Age Assistance Checks Arriving

From the March 2, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

"Old age assistance checks were mailed to 607 residents of DeKalb County in February, according to a report by the state welfare department.

"Pension checks sent to the county totaled $13,312."

Was this Social Security?

**  "Ralph Ranke, who recently went into the farm implement business with Edward McGirr, has disposed of his blacksmith shop, located on South First Street in DeKalb."

Fewer horses I reckon.
