IT'S BUDGET TIME AGAIN
Now is the time my friends to do some-
thing about the Gulf County Roadc and Bridge
Fund budget for the coming fiscal year. The
budget is now in the process of being drawn
up to be approved by the commission.
At present the budget looks like it will hit
close to $160,000.00 for.the coming year unless
it is cut down some. This is nearly,twice what
it was for the past fiscal year-the highest year
in the county's history.
We feel that it is foolish for the county to
go on spending a lot of money for road working
equipment and putting dirt roads throughout
the county in such condition that you can hardly
tell them from paved ones. We are in favor of
the County doing an absolute minimum in road
work in the county for the next year or two.
"Why?" You ask.'
We have what we think is a sound reason.
The County gets around $140,000.00 a year from
the State in secondary road funds. We have
paid the taxes to the state. At present the coun-
ty has about 100 miles of road that they must
maintain. Judging from the contracts let on
this year's secondary road funds, it costs about
$10,000.00 a mile to pave a road. This makes
14 miles of paving a year. By this token, in a
few years the county will not have anywhere to
put secondary road funds as all the roads will
be paved, and so we will lose that money. But
still we have to pay the taxes to the state.
At present we are having to pay taxes to
maintain dirt roads throughout the county in
first class condition and the county is buying all
kinds of heavy equipment to do this job. In
the next few years the county will have no need
for most of this equipment and will have very
little road work to do.
By this reason we feel that it is not the right
thing to do to spend so much money on roads
that will be paved within the next few years
anyway. It will only mean an extra burden on
the taxpayer. Why make him pay twice for
something he should only have to pay for once.
Let these things be known to your com-
missioners so that they may act as you wish. No
official action has been taken on this or any
other item of the budget which makes now the
time to act if we are going to have a decent tax
bill to bear this coming fiscal year.
A "GOOD NEIGHBOR"
What is so valuable as a good neighbor?
lou might say nothing. In light' of this we
want to report on the good works of a local
We have known as probably'you have kn6wn
that the St. Joe Paper Company has sent a num-
ber of local youths to college during the past
few years. But we wonder if you knew how
many youths could have taken advantage of
this neighborly service?
The paper company sends any child of
any of their employees who wish to go to college
a substantial aid to help them to seek higher
We have heard of many concerns that of-
fered a few scholarships each year to outstand-
ing students in their localities but the idea of
giving $500.00 scholarships to any child who
wishes to further himself is beyond us.
About the most appropriate label you could
put on anyone who observes such a practice is
to call them a jam-up "good neighbor".

The closer you compare values the more cer-
tainly you'll see that Pontiac is far and away
the standout buy on automobile row.
In size and weight alone Pontiac offers you
more car per dollar than a like amount ever
bought before. And that's important, because
that long wheelbase is the reason for comfort,
riding ease and roadability unapproached within
hundreds of dollars of its modest price. On the
road a Pontiac is always restfully smooth, steady
and quiet. Your hands on the wheel are free of
jarring road shocks. You round corners on an even
keel cruise without tiring for hours on end.
And along with these big-car features you
get remarkable savings. Economy is, of course,
exceptional. First cost is the least for any big,
luxury automobile-within a few dollars of the
lowest-priced cars. Our trade-in appraisals are
notably large and Pontiac's resale value ranks
with the highest in the industry. Come in for
the facts about today's most startling value,

sum death payment. According to
,Harry Scott, Manager of the Do-
than, Alabama, social security of-
fice. a lump-s tm death payment is
made to qualified survivors of each
person who dies and is insured un-
der the .Social Security Act. Quali-
fied survivors include the widow
or widower. provided :'ie couple
was living together when one of
then ided. If there is no widow or
widower surviving, the person pay
ing the funeral expense can re
ceive the lump-sum upon submitting
a receipted funeral bill and making
proper application at a local social
security office. All persons apply.
ing for a lump-sum payment must
complete an application form pro
vided at the office. A widow or wi
;dower who meets the living with
requirement need not submit a fun
'eral receipt. The amount of the
lump-sum ranges fro ma minimum
of $75.00 to a maximum of $255.00.
