- Accompanying note: "In record time, Sen. Charley E. Johns' welfare food stamp bill shot through the Senate in a hurry late yesterday. The bill allows recipients to participate in a multi-million dollar food stamp program. This major legislation starts the state welfare department in the federally implemented business of giving food stamps to old-age welfare recipients. Sen. Johns, of Starke, said the $75 million federal allocation program for this year, increasing substantially in future years, is involved. Seated left is Sen. Merrill P. Barber, Vero Beach. Right is Sen. C.W. Young, St. Petersburg."
