It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

1935 - At the age of 44 years old, Etta was alive when on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.
