City Sets Millage

Rate At 11.04 Mills

The City of Port St. Joe will end
up the current year's operations
with a surplus of around $21,000.00
if' receipts continue to hold up as
they are,.reported City Auditor and,
Clerk R. W. Henderson, as the City


Commission set about drawing up
a budget for' 1957 Tuesday night.
Clerk Henderson said that all bills'
were up to date and that the City
will wind up the year in the black.
Lai-t year's operation jist broke
evi-n because of several 'rnforseen
expenses, Henderson said.
According to the Clerk, one of
the main f ctc.s 'causing the City
to show a exedi at. the end of- the
year's operations, is that the Mu-
nicipal Hospital, which has shown
a loss& very year since its estab-
lisliment, reports a profit of $10..
'000.00 that it has accumulated dur-
ing the last nine months. This puts
the 'Hospital on a self-supporting
basis, under the managership uf
Mrs. Dottie Thomas for the first
time in several years. Contribu-
tions were not needed from the
City since the month of March to
carry on that operation.
The millage rate taxing property
in Port St. Joe will be the same in
1957 as it was in 1956. The rate
will be 11.04. This is expected,
to bring in $82.0.21.08. Other sour-
ces of revenue will. make up the
remainder of the $189,670.58 budget
drawn up by the commission.
The budgetary items are practi- T
cally the same as last year with an
addition of $15,000.00 of last year's T
surplus being set up into a Park
-Building and Playground Improve-
ment Fund. The remainder of the
surplus will go into the other cale- H
gories of the City budget.

job.
Most of the things that are im-
portant to a successful, happy life
are not taught in our schools. A
child may be a good scholar, get
high marks in every subject and
still graduate with little or no know-
ledge that will enable him to find
either success or happiness.
To meet life's problems, a boy
or girl must have stability. They
must be able to think clearly and'
judge justly. They should be
taught to respect the rights and
property,of others. Learn the im-
portance of honesty and integrity.
IThey should become familiar x.,i f
the value of money and learn to
use it intelligently. They should
learn to acquire patience, control
their emotions, appreciate their
blessings and understand the im-
portance of sharing them with
those less fortunate.
A big order, .you say, a job for
the Church. Maybe so, but the
Church can do little more than our
schools without the help of parents.
Nine-tenths of our present-day ju-
venile delinquency is chargeable to
parents and the woeful lack of abil-
ity to cope with the problem of
properly bringing up their children.
Unfortunately, many parents, in
their own selfishness, pass the buck
to the school and the Church. While
these agencies do their best, they
are handicapped whef parents lend
no assistance and set examples that
are contrary to every rule of good
living.
The amazing thing is that in
spite of the attitude of parents to-
day our teen-agers do as well as
they do. There is nothing radically
wrong with the youth of today but
the lack of intelligent, constructive
guidance.
Don't take my word for it. Ask
any Juvenile !Court Judge, ask any
experienced welfare worker. They
deal in heartaches, and experience
has taught them to learn the cause.
They do not enjoy dealing with a
wayward youngster but know that
without parental help they can do
little.
What hope is there for the future

THE IVEY WILLIAM'S FAMILY


They came to Florida in 1918
where Mr. Lawson was employed
by the West Virginia Land and
Timber Company in the field of
Engineering and construction, from
which he is now retired.
He is now Vice-President of The

Mrs. Lawson who is a very civic-
minded individual' is a member of
the First Baptist Church, was a
charter member of the Port St. Joe
PTA and the Port iSt. Joe Woman's
Club, and is currently an active
member of Melody Rebekah Lodge
No. 22, 'Port St. Joe; she is a Past
District Deputy President of Dis-
trict No. 2 of the Rebekah Assem-
bly of Florida and a former mem-
ber of the' J.A.M. 'Club whose mem-
bers were present wearing yellow
carnations, and served as hostesses
for this delightful occasion.
Mrs. Lawson wore a full length
dress of white lace and white crepe
over a satin slip of the same color
enhanced by a single string of
pearls and earrings to match, a gift
from her husband. Her corsage was
yellow rosebuds tied with gold rib-
bon.
The honorees were assisted in
receiving by their daughters, Mrs.
C. E. Boyer and Mrs. Edward C.
Pridgeon, both of Port St. Joe.
The artistic decorations were
very appropriate and arranged most
effectively.
To the left as the min,-'i entered

* Before you buy your next truck,
look at both sides of Ford's story of
value. Check what you get and what
it costs. You'll like what you see.
Look at the costs. Ford's first cost is
low. Resale value is high. Modern
Short Stroke engines-V-8 or Six-
are designed for less friction, less
wear, lower running costs. Mainte-
nance costs are lower, too, because
Ford trucks are built stronger for rug-
ged long life. And a 10-million truck
study proves Ford trucks last longer.


Look at what you get and, you'll see
you get more in a Ford. For example,
more horsepower per dollar-proved
by a comparison of factory-suggested
list prices and net horsepower of all
truck lines. You get more comfort and
safety in Ford's Driverized Cab with
exclusive Lifeguard features.
Look carefully consider every-
thing. You'll agree Ford trucks cost
less, give you more. If you want a
great deal a great deal mm-re for
your money-see your Ford Dealer
