It is trae that Christmas is a time
of celebrating, exchanging gifts,

but too often we leave it at this.
True, this is an important part of

ondary, not first or one and only.
Christmas should be Christmas not

thinking of the many people who
have nothing with which-to cele-

iety which they must. feel. Christ-
mas should truly be a time of
thankfulness for those who are able
to celebrate it so lav sablh; however,
even the very poor can he thank-

All in all, for me, Christmas is
a very happy and joyful time, and
it should be; it is in honor of the

License Tag Purhase
As the time for the purchase of
new license plates draws near,.
Harland Pridgeon, Gulf county tax
.collector, passes along information
that a new registration method is
being activated by the state Motor
In the past the itax collector's of-
ftce filled out the registrations cer-
tificate completely. Henceforth, the
state will fill out the certificate in
Tallahassee, including everything
but the amount number. '
The new: system, which utilize
IBM machines, will apply to those
motorists who have the same car
they had when they purchased
their last registration certificate.
Pridgeon asks that these people,
when 'they come to purchase heir
certificate and license plates, ei-
ther bring their '59 certificate or
Insure that they know exactly the
number of their license plate.
Owners who .have. changed auto-
mobiles need notbe concerned in
this because for them the tax col-
lector or 'tag office, will have to
type up a -new form.
If anyone is in doubt,' Pridgeon
urged, let 'him be sure. to bring his
registration certificate 'or write
down correctly his present tag
number when he goes to purchase
a new tag.
On the subject of tax collections,
Pridgeon said that during Novem-
ber, 94 percent of the roll for the
county ,property tax was collected.
A lot of 'people took advantage of
the four per cent discount.

Rotoary 1irf f
Mental Health Problem
Dr. Pauline Furchi of 'the Bay
County Guidance Clinic' spoke to
the 1~otary Club last Thursday on
.the alarming problem of mental ill-
ness In the United States.
Dr. Furch said that oner of 'two
hospital beds in the United States
is occupied by a mental patient.
Mental patients occupy as many
hospital beds as all other illnesses
combined. One out, of 20 persons
in the United States is treated for1
mental illness. These statistics,
were given to show the alarming
rate of mental illness.
Dr. .Furch said that in addition
'to the thousands 'hospitalized with
-mental disorders, there are 20 per-
sons for every one hospitalized re-
ceiving out-patient mental treat-
ment. Dr. iFurch pointed out that
from Tallahassee 'to .the Alabama
line there was only one psychiatrist
in Pensacola in spite of the preva-
lence of mental disorders among
.Dr. Furch declared that much
physical illness was 'the direct re-
sult of mental troubles. Delinquen-
cy, adult crime caused by mental
disorders is on the Increase In the
state of Florida.
Beginning 'the year 1958 there
were 109,000 alcoholics in the state
of Florida--- state of mental ll-
ness according to Dr. Furch. In
1940 one in 10 alcoholics were wo-
men. In 1957 one in four alcoholics
were women, showing the increase
of women with mental disturbances.
In 1957 suicide was the 11th ranked
cause of death in Florida-a direct
result of mental disorder.
Over three billion dollars are
spent in the United States annually
to treat mentally Ill persons. Other
aide effects. such as loss of ,produc-
tlveness., earning power, etc., caus-
ed a cost of many more untold bll-
Dr. Purch said that records -pre-
dict that by 1970 there will be 45
percent more children between the
ages of 10) and 17 in the State of
Florida. "These children need the
early help to keep -them from be-
coming mental 'patients", said Dr.
Furch. "If they are not helped, mul-
tiply the present mental illness bill
by the Increase in population and
see what you get."
