Through 1965, when Medicare was enacted, it was financing less than half the public bill for health; by 1976, however, the Federal share was more than two-thirds. The rise in Federal spending for social welfare is reflected in its relationship with total Federal spending. In 1950, the Federal Government devoted 26 percent of its budget to social welfare. This figure reached 33 percent by 1965 and 56 percent in 1976. A meeting to outline mental health programs and funding needs and to discuss the services available to people in the South Central Mental Health catchment area, which includes Butler, Coffee, Cov- ington and Crenshaw counties, will be held Wednesday, January 5, at 7 p.m., at the Lurleen B. Wallace Junior College in Andalusia. Representatives of the State Mental Health Department will meet with public officials, co/~munity mental health board members, mental health advocacy groups, business and community leaders and other concerned citizens from the four counties. "Public awareness and support are essential for a successful mental health system and I encourage anyone who has an interest in mental health to attend the meeting," Mental Health Commissioner Taylor Hardin said. * * * * * @ * * happiest when I am at work. I would just as soon go right there as any place." That is how he went. He had come to work at The Bank of Florala Tuesday morning and was laughing and talking with employees and customers when he collapsed with a massive coronary, All efforts to revive him failed. Dr. W. D. Potter pronounced him dead soon after arrival at Florala Memorial Hospital. To know George Hart was to love him. Anyone who didn't love him just didn't know him. He was faithful to his church, his family and to his job at The Bank of Florala where he was entering his 51st year of service. I don't remember ever seeing this fine man without a smile on his face. I am sure he had problems just like the rest of us, but he never depressed others with his problems. In fact, if you had a problem or was worried about something, a visit with George would most likely make you forget your troubles and get happy. He could tell some funny stories. He was a proud man and for good reason -- I never heard an unkind word spoke of him. We pray God's blessings upon his wife, Louise and sons, Tom and Don. His presence will be sorely missed in this community. FLORALA JEWELRY STORE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS As if we didn't have enough bad news, we learn this week that The Florala Jewelry Store, one of the old establishments of this city, is going out of business. In checking with former owner, Dr. James Denney, he tells us that a Mr. Beasley established The Florala Jewelry Store in 1925. James dad, L. D. Denney and Marvin Wadsworth bought it in 1928 and had a flourishing business for many, many years. After their deaths, James and Betty Denney ran it for a while and sold to Kenneth Brooks of DeFuniak Springs, Florida, in December of 1973. Not having a jewelry store in town will certain!y be an inconvenience to a lot of us. 1 am sorry Brooks did not meet with more success. It seems to me that someone with a lot of "get up and go" could be successful. Denney and Wadsworth sure didn't have any problems. Mr. Denney was a George Hart type. He was full of good jokes and you never left his place of business without a smile on your face. I can remember Larry's dad, The Florala News Editor Ben Woodham, use to visit Mr. Denney quite often, especially if he was the least bit depressed. Denney was a sure cure. I asked James if he had any prospects to fill the building and he said he hadn't had time to look for anyone. He just learned Brooks was moving, also. i i i 1 Household Hints @ * @ • * * * . , Extension home economists say before discarding an old mattress pad, cut out the good parts.
