To Observe Week
Present day hospital care repre-
sents a unique combining of science
and personal attention, Miss Min-
erva McLane, administrator of the
Municipal Hospital, said this week
just prior to the opening of Na-
,tional Hospital Week on May 6.
"Scientific advances have been
translated into life-saving equip-
ment, medications, and medical
techniques," Miss McLane said,
"but they are passed on to the pa-
tient only because physicians, nur-
ses and other medical personnel
are present to use them."
Each patient has special needs
that can be met only by individual
attention. While the scientific and
technical advances contribute to a
patient's recovery, they must be
prescribed and provided individual-
ly to meet the patient's exact
needs, Miss McLane said.
To 'fulfill this goal, community
hospital's have more than two em-
ployees for every patient. Each
year, one in eight persons is hos-
pitalized, and each of these persons
benefits from the advances of medi-
cal science and from the attention
of the hospital staff.
Municipal Hospital is joining oth-
er hospitals throughout the coun-
try in observing National Hospital
Week, May 6-12. This year's theme,
"Your Hospital. Uniting Science
and Patient -Care," points out that
each person who enters a hospital
will benefit from the latest scien-
tific advances and the most careful
human attention to his individual

Cance- Pire Has _---
Already Topped Goal
The Gulf County Cancer Society
has already exceeded its 1962 goal
with several days left in the drive
and their biggest money making
project still to be staged. Contribu-
tions to 'date 'amount to $2,580.96.
Gulf's goal was $2,500.00.
Drive Chairman, Mrs. Herbert
Brown credits the volunteer work-
ers and the Key Club, who manned
a road block, for having done a
fine job .toward reaching the goal.
The annual horse show, with pro-
ceeds going to the Cancer Drive,
and which normally accounts for
nearly half of the drive's funds is
scheduled for June 9 in, Wewahitch-
ka. This show, with its record of
high income, will place Gulf consid-
erably over its goal for the year.
Several other sources of income
are still not heard from, but will
also add to the margin of money
collected over the $2,500.00 goal.

"Why Fight Cancer" Topic
Of Students Cancer Theme
(This week's article on the
subject of cancer was written by
Barbara Young, an eighth grade
student in Port St. Joe High
WE THE PEOPLE FIGHT
By Barbara Young
Some say, "Why fight cancer?
When your time comes, you'll die."
But my opinion is to fight: fight
with all the will power you have.
Take for instance, the great fight-
er, the American Cancer Society.
They conducted their first cam-
palgn against cancer in 1937. Over
two thousand people volunteer each
year to 'fight cancer. This society
has ,spent over ninety-seven million
dollars on cancer research. The Na-
tional Cancer Institute was. set up
Sfor scientists to study cancer, to
experiment with it, and to try to
try to find the causes and cure.
-Today, the most common type of
cancer is lung cancer. It is the lead-
ing cause fvt death in men. It is es-
timated that 39,300 people will die
of cancer this year. 34,000 of these
will be men. Just -stop and think.
,One of these 34,000 may be you!
The cause and 'prevention of can-
cer has not- yet ;been found. But
much evidence has. proven beyond
a doubt that cigarette smoking canu-
ses cancer. Whether it's the tar in
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 1962
the cigarette or the tobacco itself
is not known.
You know, I often wonder how it
is we sleep at night. Do you ever
really think about what cancer
does? I know I do. There is so
much we can do to conquer can-
cer. And yet there is still more we
can't do. The greatest detection we
'have against cancer is the know-
ledge you yourself have. For in-
stance, the Seven Danger Signals.
You should already know them.
You should -find out how cancer
works. Some cancer will grow so
rapidly you don't stand a chance.
Other cancer grows very slowly.
Why this is, scientists have not yet
Cancer is the second most ter-
rible disease there is. If you could
see a person that is suffering from
cancer you 'would 'be thankful.
Thankful that you know enough
about cancer .and are aware of the
pain and suffering it can cause you
if 'not found in time.
In theory, all cancer is curable
when it's possible to remove or de-
stroy all of the cancer cells .exist-
ing in a person's 'body. So the best
thing 'to do is learn all you can
about cancer, and have an annual
check-up. You say "Why 'worry?"
If you can say that and not worry,
I say, "Why live,"

i Minutes of the
April 10, 1952
Tho Board of County Commissioners of
Gull County, Florida, met this date in regu-
lar seliton with the following members pres-
ent: E. C. Harden, Sr., Chairman, Leo Ken-
nedy,liNeva Croxton, James H. Greer and
A. J.;'rickland. The Clerk, Sheriff, Attor-
ney, Sod Superintendent, Civil Defense Di-
rector,-Engineer and Mosquito Control Di-
rector were also present.
The meeting came to order at 9:00 o'clock
A.M. The Chairman opened the meeting with
The minutes of March 6th, 13th and 27th
were read, approved and adopted.
The Clerk read the following letter to the
Section 510-40--State Road 386
Mr. George Y. Core
Clerk of Circuit Court
This will acknowledge your letter of
March 28 stating that the Board of County
Commissioners of Gulf County has asked
you to inquire about the Road Department's
plans for constructing a bridge across the
Intracoastal Waterway near Overstreet. You
also inquire about what kind of funds
would be used for this construction.
This road is a part of the primary sys-',
tern and is eligible for primary funds How-
ever, due to the small amount of traffic
and the high cost of such a structure, it is
my opinion that it will be necessary to
make use of this floating bridge for quite
some time. There are many places on the
primary system that funds are urgently
needed and it is doubtful if funds would
be available for this project any time in
the near future.
Very truly yours,
G. L. Dickenson
cc: Mr. William T. Mayo
' The Board discussed said letter and de-
cided not to take it as a final answer, but
to pursue this project for a future program.
The Road Department filed its monthly
reports for March. The Board discussed the
many road problems in the County due from
the last rain storm. After discussion, Chair-
man Harden stated that he realizes the
urgent need to repair the many wash-outs
caused from the storm; that the Road De-
partment will make thie repairs as fast as
possible; if there are any major projects
that will require a heavy expenditure, such
projects will have to wait until additional
roads funds are made available, because the
Road Budget is running very low at this
time; that he will neVer be in favor of lay-
ing off any County employee as a means
of reducing expenditures, but that he had
rather shut down some of the machinery
and if necessary, to use shovels to do some
of the work. The Board agreed with the
Chairman and directed the Road Suptrinten-
dent to continue working all employees.
The Civil Defense Director reported on
the activities for the month of March and
told the Board that his Department now
has plans to purchase a Fire Truck from
the State, to be paid for by funds donated
by the City of Port St. Joe and to be used
by a Civil Defense team in said City. He also
told the Board that .Mr. William H. Carr of
Port St. Joe has agreed to loan the Couity
Civil Defense rescue unit his Crash Boat
for the purpose of all rescue work; that
there will be no charge for the use of the
Boat, except- the Civil Defense will pay for
all fuel used.
The Board 'directed the Clerk to cancel
the -following County Warrants:
No. 85--MR&R Trucking Company, $43.00
dated 6-13-61, Fine and Forfeiture Fund.
No. 1419, The Lawyers Cooperative Pub-
lishers dated 10-10-61, General Fund $38.32.
Mr. W. 0. Forehand presented a right of

carried, said deed was ordered record in
