The observance of the 43rd an-
niversary of the founding of the
Boy Scoutsof America opened Sun-
day with most scouts attending a
special Boy Scout service at the
St. James' Episcopal Church at
The theme of the service was in
keeping with the anniversary .of
the Boy Scouts, including special
music and sermon by the Rev. Har-
ry Douglas. Riev.-Douglas spoke on.
"Forward On Liberty's Team". He
'emphasized the fact even though
there are over a million and a half
members of the organization, each
fellow has his part to share in free-
dom. He brought out that in
Christ's teaching we are taught
freedom within the world, within
the nation and then within our-
selves. As soon as an individual
realizes that he is important, then
the effort for any cause, this being
freedom, becomes important too.
Those Boy Scouts that participated
in the service were W. L. Smith
who read the lesson; Robert Ned-
ley led the scout oath; Jackie Da-
vis and Ralph Swatts acted as
ushers; Frank LeHardy' and Jm-
my. Fuller, Flabearers .and, Bert

---OMENS CATHOLIC CLU--
WVOMEN'S CATHOLIC CLUB
Some six or eight years ago there was a discussion
brought before the County Commissioners to th6 effect that
since there was two newspapers in the county and since the
Commission paid, with county funds, to have the minutes
of the Commissioners meetings published and paid at the
rate of $35.00 per meeting, then the Commissioners should
divide the task and the reward between the two papers,
thus making The STAR the official County-Organ one year
and the Gulf County BREEZE the official County Organ
the next year, and so on.
Evidently, this arrangement suited everyone fine since
it went for these six or eight'years without a hitch except for
a short period when the Commissioners decided to let both
papers publish the minutes and divide the $35.00 between
them. This only lasted for a few months, however, before
returning to the original plan.
Now comes the year 1953 and, the STAR'S year to be
the official County Organ. The first month of this' year,
The STAR was the official County Organ. Then came the
action by the Commissioners that The STAR opposed and
as of this month, The STAR is no longer the County Organ.
Now if the Commissioners want to be as childish as this
it's all.right with us. If they are not men enough to take
a little criticism in the manner they should, they should go
back to kiddie cars and sand piles.
On top of all that, just when has it become permissable
for the Commissioners to change the flow of the COUNTY'S
money when. THEY PERSONALLY, have been attacked.
Commissioner Whitfield made the motion to make the
BREEZE the County Organ in our stead and the motion was
secondeFb by Commissioner Daniels, both of Wewahitchka
and the motion received Va Vte sufficient to carr.
.:. .Mayle we should-ha\ e. kept our mouth slht and said
-nothing about their incident like: the BREEZE, who as 'yet'
has published nothing about-their outrage, except the fact
that they rescinded their action. But, that isn't running a
newspaper, that's just printing one.
You will notice that we did not say in so many, words
in this editorial that the only reason that we were deprived
of our turn at serving ts the County Organ, was because of
our stand in the recent action by the Commission, but you
have to admit, it sure smells that way.

PRAYER IN GOVERNMENT
(The following editorial was published in
the Oelwein (Iowa) Register. We believe that
the public will welcome such action by the new
government as is brought forth in this editorial.
ITherefore we are printing it for your edification.
Those of our readers who have been receiv-
ing confidential letters from Washington will
agree with this observation. There are several
reporting services to be purchased including'
Kiplinger, Babson and others. On many things
they disagree, but the persistence of one obser-
waiion comes as one of the finest things to hap-
pen in the White House.
We refer to the constant evidence that the
?resident and his cabinet are religious men.
Reports persisted that left no question about
'Eisenhower's belief in the.real need of prayer.
l1he men he selected, without a variation, are
.deeply religious men.
We have heard from ministers and lay-
~en alike: "What our government needs, what
Ute United Nations needs is application of the
Colden Rule and the Sermon on the Mount in
igh ci-cr es--practical applied Chri tianity in
government to as great an extent as poss-
." This wo rl'd reduce vilification, vindictive-
ness, bitterness between minority groups.
hne report'this week pointed out that Mar-
ti'Durkin, new Secretary of Labor, was "deeply
idigious," that he already has won the warm
seem of the President. Other reports indicated
the same about the other cabinet officials.
Word has now leaked out that the first
meeting of the new cabinet opened with prayer.
According to one eye witness, Eisenhower quiet-
ly called on Ezra Benson, Secretary of Agricul-
ture, to pray. This was not arranged in advance.
It was not for publicity purposes. It was a quiet,
spontaneous revelation of the existence of hon-
est, religious convictions in the hearts of the
men highest in our government. This is not the
first time such evidence of Divine need has
been expressed by our leaders. More often than
not, our Presidents and cabinet men have been
deeply religious. But there has been a post-war
development of "temporalness," if we may coin
a word, in government which seems to have
directed a trend based on political and personal
expediency. "What will benefit me most?"
"What decision is the most politically expe-

WE DISAGREE, SENATOR
A couple of weeks ago the STAR carried
a story on recommendations for a raise in teach-
er's wages that were set down by a committee
of which our own Senator George Tapper was
a member. The committee recommended a
$300 per annum raise to a grade "3" teacher and
a very low percentage of a raise for higher grade
teachers. In the words of the committee "we
don't see the need for hiring teachers with the
degree of "doctor" in our schools, especially in
any numbers." Right along about here we dis-
agree with the Senator and his fellow committee
.: The way we see it, the State of Florida and
the counties therein should spare no expense in
hiring the best brains available to teach our
coming generations. Above all, teachers should
be given the financial incentive'to seek higher
degrees and to better prepare themselves to meet
the task of teaching. At present, no teacher
dares undergo the expense of receiving their
doctor's degree. We interviewed one of the lo-
cal teachers, and it was reported by this teacher
that under the proposed wages, it would take
four years to pay the teacher back for the ex-
pense incurred during one semester of work on
a doctor's degree. By the time work was finished
on the doctorate, the teacher doubted if life
would be long enough to receive full remunera-
We congratulate Senator Tapper and his co-
workers for finally undertaking the task to raise
the teacher's under-pay; but Senator, please
don't lower the standards for teachers any more.
With all the money the State of Florida had left
over last year,.it looks like they could encourage
the hiring of teachers with higher degrees and
pay them more. Either that or cut the taxes. Idle
money is no good- Personally we had rather
see the improvement in teacher standards and
pay than a tax cut and feel that' every parent
feels like we do.
Senator, we received -a compliment to you
'' iA e nail tle other day from~the Florida Tax-
payers Association, Inc., for your work on the
Legislative Reference Council and Research Bu-
reau, which is dedicated to saving the taxpayers
money. Now don't ruin things by failing to
stand up for more teacher pay for higher de-
grees and encourage the hiring of said teachers
with higher degrees instead of going in the oth-
er direction. We're going to wind up one of
these days with no teachers if things continue to
go along in their present line.
THE DUB HAS BEEN FLUBBED
No doubt, you have.read in the papers and
heard over the radio for the past-few days of
the report made by General James A. VanFleet
about the bumble in Korea. According to Van
Fleet thle Communists could have been beaten
several times since 1951, but because of the start.
of truce talks and orders from on high, the ar-
my's hands had been tied and as a consequence
the Communists have reinforced their position
and fortified their positions untilit will take
considerably more lives to rout them now. Ac-
cording to Van Fleet the conflict could have al-
ready been over if some arm chair ameteur gen-
erals hadn't flubbed the dub; or could it be that
they just didn't care.
Those guys should be sent to Korea and
let them enjoy the comfort of a foxhole and a
bunker with hercules heat, (powder that is).

Fort Pickens One of Newest and Most
Interesting of Florida's State Parks
By ADMIRAL WILLIAM SINTON,
One of the most difficult state
parks to reach but one of the most
worthwhile to see is famed Fort
Pickens across the bay from Pen-
sacola. It is located at the site of
the first white settlement in Flor-
ida though no ruins or relics of
that settlement now remain. It c.n
be reached only by water or by
"jeep" along the beach from Santa
Rosa Beach. A road to make this
park accessible is a "must".
The present fort is one of four
beautiful brick structures built be-
tween 1830 and 1850 to protect the

Paying More For
Food Than In '52
Housewives are now paying
about three percent more for pro-
cessed fruit and vegetables than
they were last June when all'price
controls on these items were lift-

Florida Director of the Office of
Price Stabilization, revealed Mon-
Mann said the OPS recently
compared 69 comparable processed
fruit and vegetable items advertis-
ed by a large chain store with those
of six months earlier, before Con-
gress decontrolled them.
-The check revealed that more
than 20 percent were selling at
more than their old ceiling prices,
the Director explained.
Inflation will be as big a threat
in 1953 as it was during the past
year, Mann said, and he urged ev-

about inflation, its causes and con-

Corn Meal and Molasses
Offer Valentine Treat
The versatile corn meal that
kept America's colonists alive dur-
ing their first winter in this coun-
try makes a delightful Valentine
treat when combined with mo-
lasses, or sorghum, cinnamon,
ginger and milk to make an Indian
Pudding. Topped with vanilla ice
cream, it is an attractive and
healthful dessert, especially for the
Indian Pudding is almost as old
as America, itself, for it was an-
other use of corn meal developed
by the early settlers. Even early-
day recipes specified milk as the
liquid, and the addition of an egg
to increase the healthful qualities
of this dessert.
The ice cream, of course, is a
more modern touch, but it is an
outgrowth of the earlier practice of
serving Indian Pudding with cool
cream, or a hard sauce, poured
over it. This dessert may be served
warm or cold, no matter what
topping is used.
Men like Indian Pudding with a
big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Children will regard it as a special
