Delegations From Port St. Joe ahel
Wewahitchka Reach Accord
After Petition Presented
Appearing before the board ot
county commissioners, at Wewa-
hitchka last week, Horace Soum,
T. H. Stone and. B. H. Dickens pro.
sen-ted a petition for redistricting
Gulf county to give the southern
portion of the county more equit-
a.ble representation on the boara,
the petition bearing the signatures
of 1486 qualified voters.
Members of the board diiscus.sea
the matter and the Port St. )oe
delegation was heard, as were
representative citizens of Wewa-
hitchka who were opposed to the
redistricting plan as outline.
Commissioner W. R. Connell
then made' a motion, seconded by
Commissioner J. S. Daniel, thai
the election be called as, provided
by law, which, being put to a vote,
was unanimously carried.
As the special law passed by
the last legislature provides that
a second plan for redistricting
may be submitted after the board
orders the election, Commissiioner
Daniel moved that when, and at
such .time as the secondI petition
is submitted, that date for the
election be set. Tisis -otion -was
also unanimously carried.
Thursday night of last week, at
the suggestion of County Attorney
E. Clay Lewis Jr., a delegation
from Wewahitchka, made up of R.
G. Redfearn., Dave Gaskin, Claude
Lister, Charlie Morgan and Dr.
Thomas Meriwether, met with a

This was the main point of dis-

of discussion, refereeds by Attorney

whereby Highland View would re-

Kenney's Mill would be placed In

WAR PRICE BOARD DUE AN APOLOGY
Give some people a little authority and it
seems to go to their heads. And that seems
to be the case with some representatives from
the OPA office at Jacksonville. One will drop
in at the Gulf County War Price and Ration-
ing Board office and instruct the clerks to
keep their records in such and such a man-
ner, and the next one to come through will
order the books kept by a different method.
Naturally, such counter-orders keep the over-
worked clerks in a dither and cause many un-
necessary hours of additional labor.
But the crowning insult came last week
when one of these authority-laden, pompous
QPA representatives (probably one of those
ducks who thinks the world owes him a liv-
ing and pulls political strings to land a soft
job with big pay) barged into the local board
office, looked over the records and told Mr.
Charlie McClellan that "the Gulf -county

A PLEA TO HOME ROOM MOTHERS
(U'ust Editorial By Louise Porter, Chairman Home Room Mothers)
As you probably know, there is a project
underway to improve in some interesting,
practical or inspirational way, the existing
conditions of our children's class rooms. This
project has the approval of your P.-T. A.,
your principal, your county superintendent
and the wholehearted support of your chil-
In the interest of this program that has
been instigated, may 1 say this: This is our
opportunity to serve. Your opportunity and
my opportunity to serve the children of to-
day who will be the citizens of tomorrow.
At the very longest, it is ,just a few short
years that our children are entrusted to our
care. It is our duty to provide ,for them as
good a home as we can, and it is also our
duty to be interested in improving the school
in which they spend six and one-half hours
of each day.
These children of ours are in their forma-
tive, impressionable years, when beauty, high
standards and ideals can most easily be
molded into their pliable minds. Now-today,
they are receptive for every good that we
can give them.
It is true we are late getting underway
with our project. We have only three more
months of this school term. But that is three
whole months in the lives of 600 children.
Three whole months that they will never
have the opportunity to re-live. In the years
to come, when they become adults, they may
look back to these three months and be most
grateful to you for the flower you planted in
the garden of their heart and memory.
We do not know how long this dreadful
conflict of war is going to last; we do not
know how much harder and sadder the next
few years are going to be; we do not know
how many of those 600 children are going to
be drawn into the actual conflict. But we do
know this: It is their shoulders that are go-
ing to have to help reshape and rebuild the
debris and devastation that this war is creat-
ing. Theirs is going to be a crushing burden
