Governor Futrcll said Friday, can not meet the 1 terms of the federal social security act which became effective January 1.

It was Uii.s matchiiiK of stato and federal money that inspired Governor Futroll's statement Friday, Highway Patrol Is Planned in Future by State Rangers ay.

"The taxes the sheriff mentioned were delinquent one year as compared to numerous others whose tuxe.s have been delinquent for several years.
