106. A member of the retirement association, who shall have been a
teacher in the public schools or in educational institutions supported and
controlled by the State, at least six years, and who shall become totally and
permanently disabled to teach, as determined upon examination by phy-
sicians approved by the retirement board, shall receive an annuity based
upon the accumulated sum of his contributions and the contributions of
the State, with interest, calculated on the basis of McClintock's table of
mortality among annuitants and three and a half per cent interest, with
such additional annual allowance from the State as the retirement board,
in the exercise of sound discretion, shall deem equitable, the same being
limited by his earning capacity in other occupations, such additional al-
lowance to be continued so long, and in such amount, as the retirement
board may determine; provided, however, that in no event shall the total
sum received annually by such member, under this section, including his
annuity and the additional allowance above provided for, exceed half of
his average annual salary throughout his entire period of service as de-
termined by the retirement board.
If such retiring member should die before receiving in the form of an
annuity all of the accumulations up to the time of his disability from his
own and the State's annual contributions on his account, the balance shall
be paid to his or her legal representatives, as he or she may elect, subject
to such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the retirement board.

tributed thereto as assessments, and, if at the time of such withdrawal,

educational institutions supported and controlled by the State, six years
or more, he shall be entitled to receive, in addition, the contributions made
by the State on his account as hereinbefore provided, but if dismissed, he
should not receive the State's contribution.

set forth, the several amounts to which he would be entitled, if living,
