School Children

SMust Be Six Years

Old, Says Costin


TI2'w Ru:ing Pievents Retardatiion
Of CI-son, By Under-age
Fi-st Year Students

A- new state law in regard to
a;,e oc children entering school for
the first time was stressed yes-
terday by Chauncey Costin, super-
in:ien:dent of schools for Gulf
county. He requests that parents
comply with this new ruling in
order to help the school system.
He stated the law, which re-
quires that a child must be 3ix
years of age by Felbruary 1 of the
school year in which he or she is
.entered, was passed to prevent
children -who are too young to ab-
sorb learning readily, from retara-
ing the advancement of other pu-
pils of the class. The law furthe-
raqeutes that all children between
the ages of six and 16 years must
attend school.
School principals must havm
proof of a child's age at time or
entering school, states Superinten-
r!ert Costin, and this may be fur-
nigshed by parents in any of the-
lo:iowing ways:
A transcript of the child's birth
record.
A certificate of baptism showing
the child's age at birth.
An insurance policy on the 1!1t
of the child( in force for tw-.
years..
A bonafide Bible record accon
pnied- with an affidavit.
A passport of certificate of ai-
rival in the United States show-
5ng age.
A transcript of record of agt
shown in the child's school record
of at least four years prior to ap-
plication, stating date of birth.
If none of the above can b.
produced, an affidavit of, age
sworn to by the parent, accom-
panied by a certificate of age
signed by a public health officer,
public school physician or a I!-
censed practicing physician desig-
nated by tl e county board, may be
submitted.

BIG TRUCKS A HAZARD
After following a gargantuan truck down
the highway for several miles the other day
before we got a chance to pass it, we started
wondering why laws are continfially being
enacted, allowing for increase in size of these
vehicles with a consequent increase in their
weight carrying capacity.
We don't object to trucks of reasonable
size using the highways, but there is no jus
tification, economic or otherwise, for permit-
ting legitimate highway traffic to be im-
peded and endangered by the oversize mon-
strosities now allowed by the laws of mahy
states.
Personally we hate to meet one of these
mammoth trucks on the road, and we know
that practically every other motorists feels
the same way, for we know that we must
give way or risk a collision, and there would
be no sense in trying to dispute the right-
of-way with one of them.
In addition to the road hazard, the haul-
ing of excessive weights by these trucks
causes irreparable damage to the highways.
In short, the comfort, safety and highway
investment of the general public are being
sacrificed to benefit a few, who have little
regard for the -welfare of anyone except
themselves. .:

THE RIGHT TO VOTE
Under a ruling of the last legislature every
voter must re-register in order to participate
.in the forthcoming elections.
That's all right, but how many of those
registering will exercise their right of fran-
chise? We'd be willing to bet money, marbles
or chalk (perhaps we'd better omit the word
"money"-somebody might take us up) that
forty per cent of the registered voters in Gulf
county will fail to go to the polls at the May
primary.
Yet these same citizens who fail to vote
would put up an awful howl if voting priv-
ileges were denied them. We would like to
see some kind of law passed which would re-
quire every voter to cast his or her ballot
unless a good alibi could be produced, and
assess a fine on those who didn't vote.
It would be a healthy sign of interest in
popular government if all citizens exercised
the right of franchise and took the trouble
necessary to get to their respective voting
places on election day. The best type of citi-
zen considers voting not only a right and a
privilege, but a patriotic duty as well.

State WPA office announces that after
September 1 certified workers can anticipate
fatter checks. That's funny, we thought
the recent order to lop workers off the WPA
rolls was to cut down expenses, as funds
were running low.

That storm we had here the other day
blew down a couple of billboards near the
beach highway and opened up a beautiful
vista that we did not know existed. What
we need is more and better storms.

The motorist generally faces the problem
of where to park, while the pedestrian faces
the problem of where to jump.


TO SPANK OR NOT TO SPANK
For some children; and in some instances,
nothing takes the place of the old-fashioned
spanking, a University of North Caroline psy-
chologist recently told a parent-teacher in-
stitute. Some of the educators present took
issue with the professor, but, standing his
ground, he asked those o~ the 150 parents
present who spanked their children to raise
their hands. All did but four.
Which recalls the story of the strong-
willed little shaver who wouldn't get down
off the hobby horse in a department store.
His mother tried to coax him off, so did the
sales girls, the department manager and sev-
eral innocent bystanders-but on he stayed.
Finally the general manager,- attracted to
the ruckus, had a brilliant idea. He called
for the child psychologist who was lecturing
to an earnest group of parents up in the book
department.
The learned psychologist judiciously looked
over the situation, then bent over and whis-
pered something in the little boy's ear. When
the psychologist straightened up, the young-
ster promptly got off the horse and grasped
his mother's hand, ready to go.
The amazed group was curious to know
what the psychologist had said to prodttce
such wonderful results. But the man o- sci-
ence was reluctant to reveal his methods. He
said the local medical society might disbar
him for giving free advice.
But finally, at the insistence of his lecture-
sponsor-the department store executive-
the great man agreed to tell all.
"I simply said," he related, "'Now listen
here, you butt-headed little brat, if you don't
get down off that horse I'll beat the pants
off yer'."-Tampa Times;: .

A BLISTERING EDITORIAL
Having for many years given freely of his
time to public affairs, Albert Murray, one of
Boston's leading printers, has learned much
about the Casper Milquetoast characteristics
of the average citizen. Albert also knows
what newspaper editors are up against.
He pictures a red-faced man entering a
newspaper office in a hurry. "Conditions in
this city," he shouts, "are a scandal. Your
paper ought to expose this man. I will give
you all the facts. You ought to come out
with a blistering editorial against him. It is
your civic duty."
The editor hears him through, then speaks:
"I tell you what we will do," he says calmly.
"You write our paper a letter exposing the
scandal and we will be glad to publish it over
your signature."
A period of silence follows, during which
the visitor cools down rapidly. He seems to
shrink in size until he looks like a collapsed
balloon. When he speaks again, it is in a
different tone, lower and almost apologetic:
"Why," he says, somewhat flustered, "you
cannot expect me to do that. It would get
me into trouble. It would hurt me in my
business."
After this speech the visitor begins to re-
alize there is little more he can say. The ed-
itor watches him move toward the exit and
smiles. "It was ever thus," he says, and goes
to work.-Linotype News.

If punishment is to fit the crime, the guy
who started cutting lemons in thin round
dices ought to have to spend his life in prison
until he succeeds in squeezing one into a
glass instead of onto his fingers or the table-
-loth.-Cincinnati Enquirer.

We have been told that when we were a
baby we used to like to lick the paint off
our toys. The modern babies lick the paint
off their mothers.

We read where a father dropped dead
while whipping his son. Junior might just
casually mention this to Dad when they are
headed for the woodshed next time.

It takes more than soda to sweeten a sour
disposition.
