on the work that will be satisfactory
to the people of Florida.
The tax paying public, represented
through members of the Legislature
have a RESENTMENT, and. HAVE
HAD against the State Board of
Health for many, years.
During my term as member, and
President of the State board of
Health, I kept my EAR TO THE
GROUND and CLOSE AT THAT.
My conception of public sentiment
is that the tax payers of Florida are
of the opinion that the central health
plan as in vogue at this time and has
been for many years is "a mistake. ;
The people want local County
Boards of Health to be supervised,
and supervised only, by the State
Board of Health.
The plan of the past and of the
present, but NOT OF THE FUTURE;
is an EMOTIONAL and WASTEFUL
manner of spending public money.
You know and I know, in fact ev everybody
erybody everybody who is familiar with the
State Government, that the State
Board of Health is under the Consti Constitution
tution Constitution "HEAD OF HEALTH," so to
speak, in the state.
It will not require a change in the
Constitution for the State Board of
Health to continue in a SUPERVIS SUPERVISORY
ORY SUPERVISORY CAPACITY, but as administra administrators,
tors, administrators, will soon be a plan of the past.
Sooner or later, the Legislature of
j Florida will open its eyes to the needs
of FURTHER REDUCING APPRO APPROPRIATIONS
PRIATIONS APPROPRIATIONS of THE STATE BOARD
OF HEALTH and the WISDOM OF
INCREASING APPROPRIATIONS in
SOME MANNER FOR LOCAL
COUNTY BOARDS OF HEALTH.
Local Boards expending the money
that they pay for taxes will insist on
a good State Board of. Health and
will see that the money is spent for
Hillsboro County is one of the
largest and principal contributors to
the State Board of Health funds.
According to my memory the taxes
for the State Board of Health funds
in that county under the half mill
basis' are about sixteen thousand dol dollars
lars dollars a year.
" In the future these taxes will be
approximately eight thousand dollars
" Hillsboro as an individual county
never has and never will get back for
that county the amount of taxation
they pay, but if local Health Boards
were in vogue, Hillsboro County would
get nearly all of it with exception of
a minimum amount to' maintain the
State Board of Health, which would
be ADVISORY and NOT ADMINIS ADMINISTRATIVE
TRATIVE ADMINISTRATIVE in character.
How in the dickens can a' central i
Board for all Florida direct all health
Health is a proposition that needs
and must have LOCAL DIRECTION
under the supervision of a competent
State Board of Health.
Florida is ANTIQUATED in this
respect as other states have tried
local County Health Boards and
FOUND THEM EFFECTIVE.
I observe wherein you state in this
communication published broadcast
all over Florida that "OWING TO

advise our readers not to pay out their
good money for any stock without
consulting their bankers, lawyers or
other well-posted business men. We
would advise people who have liberty
bonds to hold on to them. Every bond
sold depreciates the market. Liberty
bonds will be worth 100 per cent
when they are due, and any stock they
are traded for is;probably worthless
