Local Schools Swing
Into Growing Trend
Immunization Clinics Taken Out of
the Classroom; "Shots" To Be
Given Saturday Mornings
The schools of Port St. Joe have
swung into the growing trend to-
ward taking the immunization clin-
ics out of the school room. It is a
known fact that the clinics in the
school disrupt classroom routine.
Before the immunizations are be-
gun, each child will have an oppor-
tunity to learn why he should have
his "shots." The public health nurse,
Mrs. Letitia Preston, is helping in
th e pre-educational immunization
program by providing materials for
use of the teacher in helping the
child and his family to have .a bet-
ter understanding of the import-
ance of their "shots."
This program is planned to help
eliminate fear by giving parents
and children keener knowledge of
the benefits to be derived from
their "shots." Each teacher will an-
nounce to her class the Saturday
they are expected to report to the
health department, and parents are
heartily invited to come and bring
the other children at the same time.
In co-operating with the schools
to help this new idea become a re-
ality, Dr. Terry Bird, Gulf county
health officer, announces that im-
munization clinics will be held each
Saturday morning from 9 to 11
o'clock at the county health depart-
ment, 224 West Sixth Street.

Our Country Right or Wrong
SHALL WE AWAIT THE BLOW?
The Communists always claim that theirs is a
perfectly legal party, like the Democrats and the
Republicans, and that they have a constitutional
right to carry on their activities.
What that position actually means was well
described recently by Judge Learned Hand of
the circuit court of appeals. He was speaking for
a unanimous court upholding the conviction of
the eleven Communist leaders in New York last
year. He said: "They claim the constitutional
privilege of going on indoctrinating their pupils,
preparing increasing numbers to pledge them-
selves to the crusade, and awaiting the moment
when we may be so far extended by foreign en-
gagements, so far divided in counsel, or so far
in industrial or financial straits, that the chance
(of successful revolution) seems worth trying.
That position presupposes that the First Amend-
ment assures them freedom for all preparatory
steps and in the end the choice of the initiative,
dependent upon that moment when they believe
us, who must await the blow, to be worst pre-
pared to receive it."
Communism is not a political party. It is a
revolutionary movement owing total allegiance
to a foreign government. its se)e aim is to de-

Florida Gets Smdl
Fisheries Aid Bi0
Too Many Residents o+ Statei
Exempted From Buying
Florida will annually receive an
estimated $62,575.95 for fishery res-
toration and management projects
under the new Dingell-Johnson fed-
eral aid to state fisheries act re-
cently signed into law by President
The sum places Florida in the rel-
atively low position of twenty-third
among those states receiving a ma-
jor portion of the federal funds.
With an estimated $46,931.96 com-
ing from federal apportions of the
10% excise tax on sport fishing
tackle, and the remaining $15,643.99
being contributed by the state it-
self, Florida ranks far below such
states as California and Michigan,
which will receive an estimated
"It may seem strange to some
that with all of its famed game and
sport fishing in salt and fresh wa-
ters, Florida will receive such a
comparatively small portion of the
'DJngell' funds," said Coleman New-
man, director of the state game and
fresh 'water fish commission, "but
all of those states which rank so
far ahead of Florida are those that
have a uniform fishing license reg-
ulation under which almost all sport
fishermen are required to have li-
censes. In comparison; an estimated
75% of Florida's fresh water fisher-
men, and all of its salt water fisher-
men, are exempt, for various rea-
sons, from purchasing lishing li-
Under the Dingell Johnson act,
60% of the federal funds are dis-
tributed among the states in the
same ratio that the number of fish-
ing licenses sold in each state bears
to the total sold in all the states.
The remaining 40% of the funds
are distributed to the states in the
same ratio as the total land and
water area of each state bears to
the total area of all the states.
While such states as Michigan
demand that practically all fresh
water fishermen be licensed, and
California, in addition, demands all
of its salt water fishermen also be
licensed, Florida exempts all fish-
ermen using poles in the county of
their legal residence, all children
under 15, and all residents over 65
years of age, or an estimated 75%.
In addition, Florida requires no li-
cense for salt water fishing.
All these exemptions resulted in
Florida selling only 1.8% (or 274,.
016) of the 15,000,000 fishing li-
censes sold in the United States in
