Lay Speaker Will Outline
Episcopal Church Program
All members of St. James' Epis-
copal Church will gather next
Thursday evening, November 9, at
8 o'clock to hear a layman describe
the church's work in this country
and overseas. The layman is Lamar
Munroe, hardwareman and promi-
nent churchman of Quincy.
"This is part of a national move-
ment of Episcopalian laymen to ac-
quaint the people of the church with
the church's program," said- Rev.
Lee Graham, pastor, "and its mess-
age of Jesus Christ which is being
taken to all people.
"Last year more than 1100 lay-
men began the huge educational
campaign by speaking to vestries
and parish councils. This year these
laymen are taking their message to
the people in the pews. It is a vast
campaign of laymen, by laymen, for
laymen and in the name of Christ
and His Church."
To make his presentation vivid,
Mr. Munroe will use full color slides
of some phases of the church's mis-
sionary work, and his listeners will
hear the transcribed voices of mis-
sionary bishops actually in the field.
"We are now exporting to the
orient men and arms on missions of
death,"' said Rev. Graham. "Christ
calls us to export also men armed
with Bibles and the gospel of peace.
Billions for defense will stop the
aggressor after he shoots; millions
for Jesus Christ will stop 'the ag-
gressor before he shoots."
Coffee will be" served in the par-
ish house before Munroe's address.

Our Country (7 Right or Wrong
TUESDAY'S ELECTION IMPORTANT -
To put it mildly, the political strategists of
both parties are in a state of confusion and won-
der as to what changes, if any, Tuesday's elec-
tion will produce.
Republican and Democratic party spokesmen
have gone through the routine of saying they ex-
pect whopping victories at the polls. Neither
side, it is safe to say, is anywhere as confident as
those standard-brand prognostications would in-
dicate. The primaries have not demonstrated
much of anything. Both pro-Truman and anti-
Truman candidates have won.
The Democratic position isn much the same as
it was last time. It is argued that the president
is the friend of the masses of the people and the
enemy of the .exploiters, and that his program is
just what the country needs. It will be necessary
to elect a strongly Democratic congress, the ar-
gument continues, to give him the support he
The basic Republican argument is that the
Democrats have at last proven themselves utterly
incapable of guiding this country through the
period of strain and grave danger that lies ahead.
The Republican leaders feel that there is evi-
dence that this belief has grown in the grass-
roots. Whether it has grown to a sufficient extent
to change the control of congress is what no
And these questions will make Tuesday's elec-
tion unusually interesting as well as vitally im-
There are no opposed candidates on the bal-
lot in Gulf county (unless you consider the Re-
publicans opposed to Jerry Carter and -George
Smathers as possible opposition), but qualified
electors are urged to go to the polls and express
their opinion on the five constitutional amhend-
ments. Four of these amendments are not par-
ticularly important, but No. 1, pertaining t.o juve-
nile courts, is exceeding important, and we trust
that the people of Gulf county will go over-
whelmingly in favor of it.
Capitol Hill would control rents, roads and
railroads; prices, production, power and pork;
airlines, animals, autos, monies andc credits; in-
dustry, crops, illness and old age; and, if it could,
it might even try to regulate demand, popula-
tion, and the hereafter.-T;i' :c City (Ia.) News.

Training Cost Per
Pupil In County
Schools Is $148
Compares FavorablyWith Costs In
Other Counties of North-
According to a survey just com-
pleted, the cost of sending a child
to school for a year in Gulf county
averages $148.85. The statewide av-
erage is $170.45.
Lowest cost per pupil in the state
went to Bay county with $117.15.
Other Northwest Florida counties
had the following costs: Calhoun,

$134.32; Holmes, $130.52; Liberty,
$211.52; Okaloosa. $124.50; Walton.

With Gulf county ranking sixth
in Northwest Florida, County Su-
perintendent Tom Owens points out
that consolidation of school centers
had.a lot to do with reducing the
cost per pupil.
Owens pointed out that numerous
surveys have showed it costs more
to run small schools than large
ones, which explains the trend from
onre-teacher schools to modernly
equipped, centralized school plants.
A survey of costs of schools of
Florida published recently in The
Star revealed that the cost of a 49-
.pupil school is $314.36 per pupil,
while the cost of a 1000-pupil school
drops to $77.30 per pupil.
