this area. Bob and I both opined
that something should be done

who knows how to treat such per-
sons catches him in the act.

regularities, they would be recog-
nized as harmless errors.
Well, maybe so. But if the
newspapers kept silent about ev-
ery error that was termed "harm-
less", the tax payer would soon
be stolen blind.
We, like Core, firmly believe
that every Gulf County official
is honest, but the rules are made
to discourage dishonesty and we
believe any officeholder should
be willing to abide by the rules
then there will be no questions
-and no newspaper stories de-
sigoted to bring tirregularies to
the attention of the voters and
taxpayers, where they belong, re-
gardless of what anyone thinks.

Social Security Act Completes
Quarter Century of Service To People
Twentydive years latter passage
of tihe original Social Security Law,
,the benefits provided under this in-
surance system have become an
important economic asset to local
communities. As of the 'end of 1959,
9,105 'people in 'sevan Northwest
Florida counties-Bay, Calihouan,
Gulf, H'olmes, Jackson, Walton
and Washington-were receiving
social security Ibenefits in the
amount of $5,175,816 a year, John
V. Oarey, district manager of 'the
'Panama City social security office
said this week. Most of the bene-
fts $4,785,684 were going to peo-
ple who have retired and their de-
namal-anto nr f n iiwrq flv-
beneficiaries throughout the Unit-
ed States at ,the end of 1959. In
,'he State of Florida alone, 'annual
benefits came to over $332,900,568.
Figures are not available on a Ilo-
cal basis, but nationwide, more
than 55 billions of dollars have
been paid in 'social 'security benie-
fits since the first payments were
authorized in January, 1940. Many
beneficiaries who first qualified in
January, 1940, are still receiving
t h e ir monthly -social security
In the 25 years since passage of
the Social Security Law on Au-
'gust 14, 1935, numerous changes

Social Security benefits are in-
tended primarily as a ,basic 'floor
of financial [security against loss
of income .because of retirement,
disability or death., Oarey contin-
ued. However, the payment of $319,-
104 a year in Gulf County helps lo-
cal business because most of ithe
money is spent immediately for
food, clothing and other basic
necessities. Nationally, more than
10 billion dollars per year were be-

a doubt, continue to make needed
improvements. The original S,:,:i.

'beginning, 'social 'security hais
grown into 'a system Which affords
