Naples in every quarter and were
never in trouble.

Rotary Club Celebrates Birthday of State Tax Council Declares County
Alexander Graham Bell and Telephone Assessments Too Low Over
The Port St. Joe Rol]r('y Club
observed the birthday (nf Alexan-
der Graham Bell and the invention
-of the telephone at their luncheon
Meeting Thursday at noon.
Presenting the' program to the
'.club were Joe L. Sharit and How-
ard McKinnon of the St. Josepn
Telephone and Telegraph Company
and S. C. Schucart of Tallahas3ee
'of the communications division of
the 'Florida 'Railroad and Public
:-,.Utilities Commission. Schucari pre-
sented an address to the Rotarians
on the advancement of telephone
services in the United State, and
compared phone service here with
other, countries. In Florida Schu-
Kcart said that there an average of
':34.6. telephones for every 100 per-
sons in the state of -Florida. This
is slightly above, the national aver-
age. He said that last year $101,-
280,000 was spent in Florida adding
158,000 new telephones in the state
and still the demand was great for
more phone service.
As a comparison world-wide,
Schucart said that the United
States had 60% of the telephones
in service throughout the entire
world. He said that service here
in Port St. Joe was 100% better
than that in London, England or
Paris, France. He declared that es-
pecially long distance service
abroad would cause an American
to hang up in disgust.
Schucart said that the day is
not long off when a person may sit
in his own home and dial anywhere
in the United States without call-
ing the operator. Long distance
calls to anywhere will be as speedy
as local calls. He said that opera-
tors are now dialing these long dis-
tance calls without having to call
stations along the route, but that
in the very near future, even he
step of calling the operator will be

TALLAHASSEE Most of Florida's 67 counties. hard-pressed
financially to support their .schools, would favor creation of a state
agency with advisory powers to improve county tax assessment
Dr. Paul J. Piccard, staff mem-
ber of the Citizens Tax Council,
said last week an analysis of re-
ports of 51 county tax councils
eliminated. Schucart said that if all
the phone systems in the United
States were manually operated in
place of dial there would not be
enough women in the United States
between the ages of 25 and 40 to
operate the switchboards. "The au-
tomatic dial is necessary for the
phone business to stay in opera-
tion", he declared because of labor.
Schucart also gave the Rotarians
a glance at how the telephone ser-
vice- is also rendering an invalu-
able service to medicine, radio,
television, industry, transistor de-
velopment and many other phases
of modern living through by-pro-
ducts of its service.

State Piccard said the reports reveal
that. most property is assessed at
about 30 to 40 per cent of its ac-
tual value despite the fact Florida
law requires assessment at full cash
value. One count council said its
tax roll was a hodgepodgee of as-,
scssment based upon the personal
opinion or whim of the officials
who have held the office."
About one-third of the county
councils favored giving a state
agency administrative power over
local assessments, but most object-
ed to the idea of allowing a state
agency to decide assessment ap-
peals of individual taxpayers. About
one-third advocated complete re-
appraisal of all property by an out-

* Folks just naturally love Ford's lower,
sleeker silhouette. And they love Ford's
new ThunderbirdV-8's and- Milcage Maker
Six. But the thing that's really got 'ecm
buzzing is Ford's new ride. In the new kind
of Ford, vital riding features team up to
give you the smoothest going in the whole
ride world. For example:
New automatic variable-rate rear springs
Going from a highway to a byway in a Ford, is like
going from satin to silk. New design allows Ford's rear
springs to "soften" or "stiffen". depending on road
conditions. You get a smooth ride all the wayl I
More comfortable seating
There's no sag when you sit in a Ford ... even on long
trips. Comfort-contoured seats, rigidly anchored, have
advanced springing for greater comfort and longer life.

More weight and length
Head for the roughest road in the new kind of Ford.
Notice how the biggest bumps lose their "thump"I One
reason is that this biggest, longest, heaviest Ford has the
extra "beef" to give a smooth, road-hugging ride.
New swept-back Ball-Joint front suspension
Ford's new, stronger front suspension is designed to soak
up the shock of rough roads. The new swept-back design
lets wheels "roll" with the bump and absorb it going
away ... for far smoother, steadier sailing.
More body insulation
Ford has more body insulation-protection against
weather, dust, and noise-than any car in the low-price
field. You ride through city traffic in library-like quiet.
One of Ford's nicest back-road habits is to make believe
the rough spots aren't there. Proper weight distribution
and precise balancing let Ford iron out bumps far better
than many of the higher-priced cars.
New lower-pressure tires
Even Ford's tires are new for a better ride Although
they require less air pressure, they hold about 17% more
air for cushioning the car. This means a softer ride-
without sacrifice of Ford's good handling characteristics.
No metal-to-metal chassis and body contact
Only Ford in its field uses 20 Cushion Quiet rubber body
mounts more than any other low-priced car. It all
odds up to a smoother, quieter riding car.

But Collins' citizens committee
on school construction called also
for "practical economy" on all lev-

Chairman LaMar Sarra, Jackson-

for school construction.
They voted 10 to one to recom-

per cent increase would amount
to about $18,478,000 on the basis of

for the tag increase, but said he
