PTA Hears Max Walker

County, spoke informally to the
combined Gulf County PTA meet-
ing here in Port St. Joe last Thurs-
Walker told the PTA of how his
county had overcome a lack of
funds in their school system by
Walker said Gadsden County
schools realized in 1953 that they
needed to do something drastic to
increase local revenues.
To increase value of property
and to lower millage rates were
steps needed to give schools more
money. Concerted group effort led
to appointment of a Tax Commit-
tee by Governor Collins. The coun-
ty tax assessor agreed to work with
the committee to lower millage,
and at the same time place more
people on the tax rolls. The great-
est increase came through re-eval-
uation of homes that were former-
ly tax free.
Mr. Walker related how their
property evaluation was accom-
polished over a period of years and
he stated that at present, property
in Gadsden County is on the books
at 68% of market value.
He commented that money put
in schools is an investment in
"real, live, well-trained citizens of

County could join a program of
providing Government surplus food
for people on relief in Gulf County.
There are now 17 counties in
Florida in this program.
According to McCubbin, Gulf
could get into the program for ap-
proximately $4,000 to $5,000 a year
over and above the present cost of
its indigent program and this would
provide some $48,000 worth of
foodstuffs per year. The County

Kiwanis Club Is
Shown Cancer Film
The film, "The Million Club"
was shown to the Kiwanis Club at
their regular meeting Tuesday.
The film, produced by the Amer-
ican Cancer Society, showed the ef-
fects of securing an early check-I
up at the first appearances of each
of the seven danger signals of can-
cer. Even with great strides in the
treatment of cancer, an early ex-
amination of suspected areas is
still most important in experienc-
ing a cure.
Cancer is on the increase in
Florida and the nation. Over 8500
died in Florida last year from the
dread disease. Nine of these died
in Gulf County. It is estimated that
Gulf will have 43 new cases in 1964
resulting in 15 deaths.
But with the incidence in cancer
growing so is the rate of cure. In
1939 only one in five could be cur-
ed of cancer. Now one in three can
be cured. The important factor is
to secure treatment early enough.
The program was presented by
B. Roy Gibson, Jr., Cancer Society
