The County Road and Bridge
Fund has been set at a whopping
$152,937.00. Other than labor, the
largest appropriations in this Fund
is $34,500.00 for new equipment.
It must be pointed out that the
budget Is now official as yet, but
is only a suggested budget. In the
past, temporary budgets have been
pared down before they were pas-.
This year's budget will probably
be financed by more taxes than
in year past. This will be neces-
sary because the county must take
$26,000.00 of race track money for-
merly used in the budget to pay
on the County Health Clinics now
under construction. Also It must
provide $3,000.00 of the race track
money for White City, by order of
a special act passed in the recent
session of the legislature. ,
The entire County budget can be
found on page seven in this week's

329 Receiving Funds
In Gulf County
In Gulf County, 329 individuals
were drawing monthly retirement
or survivors' insurance benefits in
the amount of $13,13'6.00 under So-
sial Security at the end of 185r,
John V. Carey, District Manager,
Panama City Social Security office,
said this week. These "people have
qualified through salaried or self-
employment work covered by the
Social Security law.
Throughout the seven county
area serviced by the Panama City
Social Security office 5,669 individ-
uals were receiving $216,431.00 each
month, Carey continued. These fig
ures represent an increase from
4,891 beneficiaries drawing $179,-
456.00 at the end of 1955, one year
Social Security benefits must be
earned before an individual has a
right to these insurance payments.
The reporting and taxing provisions
concerning Social Security are con-
tained in the Internal Revenue Code
Carey concluded. There are penal-
ties for failure to make the proper
reports of an individual's earnings
for Social Security purposes--the
penalties for willful and deliberate
failure to report a worker's earn-
ings are extreme. Your Social Se-
curity office will furnish you with
the correct information about the
proper reporting of your workers.
The office for this area is 522 Mer-
cer Avenue, Panama City.

earlier. T.he December 1956 pay-
ment rate projected for the entire
year of 1957 would bring $2,597,
172.00 Into this seven county area
in the form of Social Security in-
surance payments. Actually, of
course, there will be an Increase
in the number of beneficiaries and
in the amount paid during 1957.
The Increase in 1957 over 1956 will
be greater because of the lowered
retirement age for women, age 62,
and because of the -disability insur-
ance benefits which become pay-
able for July of 1957.,
Many more individuals could
qualify for Social Security insur-
ance payments, Carey added. There
are many people who don't under-
stand the simple fact that they
must file an application to receive
this insurance payment. Also,
many individuals are not building
up Social Security credits through
salaried work or self-employment,
either because of Ignorance of the
reporting provisions in the Internal
Revenue Code, or-by neglect. Yet
Social Security -coverage is on a
compulsory basis for everyone who
works in Social Security employ-
ment, except ministers.

doctors of medicine, who have a
