We feel we can never thank our friends enough for their kindness and help during the illness and at the time of the death of our baby.
It seems as though an angel was loaned to us for a little while, and we can hardly think of its sleeping in the cold ground. We want to
thank the doctors and nurses, our relatives and friends for their many acts of kindness and for the beautiful flowers, and above all for
those who prayed so earnestly for our baby.

|Appropriation Is Made For County Agent In Gadsden|
Commissioners Move to Cooperate with AAA to Assist Farmers, Growers and Stockmen--Wilson Reelected Chairman
At the first meeting of the year Monday the board of county commissioners reorganized by electing A. L. Wilson as chairman for another year. Mr. Wilson has been chairman of the board since assuming office last January.
At this meeting agreement was reached to appropriate $500 toward financing the Agricultural Adjustment Administration program in Gadsden county and Chairman Wilson was authorized to communicate with J. Lee Smith, district agricultural agent, relative to securing an agent to head the program in the county.
Appearing before the county board here December 4 Mr. Smith explained the plan of the AAA for assisting farmers, growers and livestock producers to secure greater returns from their cotton, corn, hogs and tobacco, explaining that benefit payments would be made to those cooperating in the program. The plan, he stated, provides for rentals amounting to approximately 3 1-2 cents a pound on cotton, 30 cents a bushel on corn and $5 a head on hogs.
The agent informed the commissioners that funds would be available for the employment of committeemen and secretaries and for the payment of telephone and stationery bills, saying that the Agricultural Adjustment Administration had placed funds at disposal of the State Agricultural Extension Division of the University of Florida to pay the major portion of an agent's salary.
The program is designed to cover a period of six months it was stated by Chairman Wilson, who said today that he had been advised by District Agent Smith that a man would be sent to Quincy immediately to take up the work in interest of the farmers of the county.
