Twins become mothers together for second time in less than two years. Washington, D.C., April 7. Accustomed to doing practically the same things all their lives, these Washington twins, now mothers, have apparently decided that having their children together would certainly be in order. The mothers, Mrs. Eileen Moon, left, and Mrs. Kathleen Robie, last week gave birth to daughters to set a new record at Columbia Maternity Hospital. Mrs. Moon's youngster, whom she named Carol, was born on March 29, while Mrs. Robie's new daughter Nancy Lee first saw the light of day on April 1. This same thing happened in July 1937 when Mrs. Robie gave birth to a girl and a few hours later Mrs. Moon's baby, a boy, arrived

Baltimore, MD. In handling millions of records two things are of great importance: accuracy and speed. Social Security Account numbers are divided according to the area in which the account number was issued, the group within the area, and the serial, or individual number. There are 9,999 individual or serial numbers in each group, and 100 groups in each area. To eliminate chance of human error, and to speed up the work, the area number and the group number of each account is punched on the employee master card by a "gang punch" machine. Only those serial numbers belonging to the same area and group are put into the gang punch machine at one time. Thus the machine need be set only once to punch the correct area and group number on hundreds of cards faster and more accurately than a human being could. The photograph above shows master card being punched with holes representing area and group numbers in the gang punch machine
