ETAOIN SHRDLU
by 1WELEY R. RAMSEY


Published belo. 'ts a little arti-
ble .thht .we clipped out of The
obuhtty record of Blountatown last
week to4it:
"l'br many ears most of the oth-
tr iewslaper publishers in West
i'lbrlda haVe ,eiloy d reading the
'it. Joe, Star". bil Smith, its proB-
Berous owner recently quit. Smith,
hale and hearty, just up -and sold

- A gentleman named Rapsey:
took his place. I am sure that all
the other weekly editors, lile me,'
were interested to see if he was
going to prove interesting, or a
dud.
John Winslett, former editor of
.the "Jackson County Floridian" di-
vides newspaper editors into two
classes. One of. Winslett's groups
hi calls bovine.
Ramsey isn't bovine. He may
ha*e his faults, as who doesn't,
Iut he has already demonstrated
that he stands for something. He
is hot for teacher raises, against
alcoholic -beverages, as all readers
of his sheet know. .
I have never met Editor Ram-
tey. I am aware of these things
from reading 'The Star". As Win-.
pilpt 'would say, he doesn't moo.
adnimttfag that it would be fair-
yI T ,fe o nbe against spirits fru-
ipi. and 'for ttear er raises;' can-
Edr forca me to add that Ramsey-
epoke tu'. Tight .'b-terIy against
his Buard ZCoun;'y 'Obmmisi>in-
ers last week [" -s-hall read nesx
week's Star wi1i thf- interc.st that,
I am.ure ai ot of people in Gulf
County will."
Thanx for those kind utterances,
Editor Finlay. However, we are
riot against alcoholic beverages.
We are against their, sale' when
they are not supposed to be sold
and specifically against their -sale
on ISunday. We are definitely
against prohibition since there
doesn't seem to be enough money
available to hire the men to make
it stick. But since we must have
alcoholic beverages distributed, we
think six days are enough. If a
man wants to drink the nasty tast-
ing stuff, that's his business but
let him refrain from the opportun-
ity of buying it on Sunday. Don't
you agree, Editor, that although a
majority are FOR teacher's raises
nobody does anything about it?
Sort of like people and the wea-
ther you know, everybody talks
about it but nobody does anything
about it.
You'-know me too, Editor, I
worked here some six years ago
and even dropped by your shop at
one time. You just don't remem-
ber me. However, I hope that we
may renew acquaintances shortly.

Looks like we're going to have to
extend -our desk. The cat we ac-
quired some time .back has com-
mandeered one end of the desk
for its daytime .naps. It doesn't
matter if the corner is covered with
cqpy spikes, checks, bills or any-
thing. It just curls up on "its" end
and goes cozily off to sleep.

I don't know where she got the
idea, but Monday we send our
daughter off to Sunbeams at the
First Baptist Church and gave her
a dime for collection and her bro-
ther likewise. The plate was'pass-
ed around and our son dropped his
dime in and the plate was passed
to our daughter. She dropped in
her dime and withdrew a nickel.
It seems she was in dire need of a
new lollypop or something.

Lenten Service Series

St. James Episcopal Church op-
ened its annual series of Thursday
evening Lenten services last Thurs-
day with a covered dish supper.
This year's series will be en-
titled, 'Christianity and Commun-
ism", and Rev. Harry Douglas is
conducting the study group and
discussions.
The series will be built around
the work and thinking of Profes--
sor John C. Bennett, Professor of
Christian Theology and Ethics in'
Union Seminary, New York. He
was the chairman of the Commit-
tee of the World Council of Chur-
ches which produced the much dis-
cussed report on capitalism and.
Communism.
Questions asked by the group, to
be answered during the course:
1. Can a Communist be a Christ-
ian? 2. What is the difference in
theories of communal possession
of property as set forth in the New
Testament and Communist Mani-
festo? 3. Why is the appeal of Com-
munism so subtle? 4. Are there
different aspects to communism, ift
so, what are they? The second
meeting in the series will deal with
the nature of Communnism and
reading, relating to this assign-
ment, will be found on page 4 of
Selected Readings.
A covered dish- supper will be
held each Thursday at 7 p.m.
with the study group starting Im-
mediately after. Film strip will be
showntor the children, during the
study hour.

After that, it's the western sec-
tional tourney of the third district
at Shellman for this auburn-haired
lassie who has scorched the hoops
for more than 800 points in 23
games this season. And she's hope-.
fitl for a return appearance in the
state tournament which gave Judy
her greatest thrills in 1950 and
1951.
Even greater than scoring 73
points in one game?
,"Yes, I believe playing in the
state tournaments ny freshman
and sophomore years gave me my
biggest thrills," she said recently.
"I just couldn't believe that I had
scored 73 points in one game."
This magnificent feat came on
Jan. 9 against Leesbu.rg.
She also had 43 in a single game
against Lumpkin and closed out
her home career. Last Friday
night at Dawson and will be seek-
ing 22nd victory in 24 starts.
Only losses to Clayton County
high of Fort Gaines and Buena Vis-
ta mar the fine 1953 record.
Judy, who stands 5-8, says she
shoots mostly under the basket
now, from either side of the lane.
"I shot most from out last year,"
she said, adding "this is my first
year playing the pivot."
Judy has fouled out only one
time in four years of play with the
Cusseta high- girls team. When
asked how she ruinedd 'to acci-
mulate so few fouls, she replied,
"I don't know. You have to be
mighty careful, though."
The only time she was shunted
to the sidelines on fouls came in
her freshman year, she said.
(Tuesday, Jimmy Greer brot
word by The Star that Cusseta
won the district tournament and
will go to Macon the first of
March to compete in the state
tournament; Judy's third in four
years of play.)

THIS TEACHER SITUATION
We are in receipt of an article from the
Florida Education Association pertaining to thet'
conditions brought about by the low rate of
teacher's pay in this state. It contains a reason
for all the common complaints heard about the
teaching situation. If you want it straightened
out, why not join us and drop a line to your
State Senator expressing your wishes. How
else do you expect youi wishes to be known?
At any rate, here is the article reprinted be-
low:
"Rising teacher salaries in other states and
the lure of higher salaries in private industry
are causing the teacher shortage in Florida.
Almost all Florida counties had difficulty
in assembling qualified teaching staffs this
year for the first time since 1947, when the
Minimum Foundation Program was enacted in-
to law.
Only 7 counties had complete staffs when
pre-school conferences opened in August, with
almost 600 vacancies. When school opened in
September only 18 counties had full staffs, with
some 250 vacancies in 49 counties.
To find .teachers to staff the classrooms,
county superintendents had to employ 1087
teachers the superintendents said were riot quali-
fied for the clates they teach. Many superin-
tendents had to hire teachers from other states
"sight unseen," or face the prospect of not hav-
ing enough teachers. Counties employed 427
teachers this way.
I Since school opened, numerous resignations
from teaching staffs throughout the state, with
the teachers going to better-paying jobs in oth-
er states or leaving teaching for other professions.
SOne county had a 50 per cent turn-over in teach-
ers this year.
The teacher shortage in Florida is just be-
ginning.
In 1947, when the Minimum Foundation
Program was passed, teachers from other states
flocked to Florida to get what was then high-
salaried teaching positions.
In addition, the "learn-more, earn-more"
provision of Florida school law, which provides
additional salary increments to teachers as they
increase their training and experience, convinced
teachers from other states that the Florida
school system offered room for advancement.
However, since 1947 other states have raised
their teacher salary schedules, thus keeping
teachers from coming to Florida, and the state
can no longer depend on this influx of instruc-
tors from other states.
But, Florida teacher training institutions
train only about 25% of the teachers needed to
keep up with the increasing enrollment; so un-
less the state can continue to lure teachers from
other states, the teacher shortage will grow more
acute.
Last year Florida schools graduated 703
elementary teachers when the need was for
2,200 elementary teachers. To make matters
worse, reports from Florida colleges and univer-
sities show that as few as 50 per cent of those
who did graduate last year are in teaching.
One private teacher college reports only 7 .per
cent of its teacher graduates now in teaching.
Business, industry, and government service
are actively competing for the services of college
trained people and they offer more attractive
salaries .to beginners than Florida's county


schools can offer. Also, they offer more attrac-
tive long range increases than'most of Florida's
, counties can provide in teaching.
More than two-thirds of the counties can
offer only $2500 or less as beginning salaries to
four-year college graduates, and about one-half
of these pay $2400 or less. One county offers
as low as $2200.
In addition to the problem of getting new
teachers into education, many experienced teach-
ers leaving the state for higher-paying jobs in
big-city school systems. The big-city schools
.are out-bidding Florida and getting the teach-
ers.
The only solution, is to pay Florida teachers
higher salaries to keep experienced personnel
in teaching and to encourage young boys and
girls to become interested in education as a ca-
reer. "If we are to maintain this free educa-
tion system of ours, and give our children good
educational opportunities, we're just going to
have to raise teacher salaries to meet competi-
tion,"
It would appear through the text of the
above article that things to come are going to
be worse than they are now in the teacher sit-
uation if something isn't done and done quick.

GETTING RESULTS
Shortly before the long-needed job of scrap-
ping price controls started, the New York Times
ran an interesting editorial under the title "Good
News for Housewives." It said, "The law of
demand and supply, it would appear, is in pro-
cess of accomplishing something that never was
achieved by the post-Korea price control legis-
lation. It is operating to restore the beefsteak
to the family dinner table.
"Not many weeks ago the retail price of
round steak had stabilized at around $1.05 a
pound. Today the 'regular' price throughout
the country is 95 cents a pound."
.The Times went on to point out that many
beef cuts are selling at much lesser figures than
this, and continued, "The lower prices for beef
reflect pressures from both sides of the demand-
supply equation. On the one hand, prices had
reached levels that were calculated to induce
consumer resistance (which is to say, less ac-
tive demand). On the other hand, the cyclical
expansion of beef supplies has continued with-
out interruption. The beef cattle population,
which had risen from 76,830,000 as of January
1, 1949 to 88,062,000 three years later, has main-
tained its growth pattern through 1952 .
Unofficial figures place the probable total as
of January 1, 1953 at between 92,000,000 and
93,000,000, which would represent a new all
time high."
.There is nothing mysterious about the
workings of the supply and demand system.
Generally speaking, prices tend to rise when
demand outruns the supply of a commodity -
while prices tend to decline when the supply
balances or exceeds the demand. It is, there-
fore, to the direct financial interest of every
consumer that maximum production of all com-
modities be encouraged. And maximum pro-
duction, it should never be forgotten, is attained
only in a free, competitive market.

IT'S STILL GOING ON
We see that Sunday whiskey sales are still
going on. However,- we-are not going to say
much about it until after the next Commission-
er meeting. At that time we expect the Com-
missioners to request the state to send some
beverage department men down here to enforce
the law. We trust that after a shaky start the
Commissioners will finally start attending to the
County's business in a first class manner. We
hope so anyhow. We hate to be eternally cri-
ticizing.

A Prayer
Dear Lord: Give me this day
what it takes!

We can make America the Great Example
if enough of us will make our lives a Little Ex-
ample.

Solid Choice of Solid Citizens!


In its distinctive beauty, its size and
comfort, its interior luxury and its all-
around performance, Pontiac ranks high
among America's quality cars-yet it's
priced just above the lowest!
Thus Pontiac has an almost irresistible
appeal to people who find it wise to keep
their automobile investment at, a mini-
mum-without sacrificing quality. It is
this unique coMbination of.goodness and
price which makes Pontiac the solid


choice of those solid citizens who are
money wise and quality .conscious.
The reasons for this preference were never
more obvious than in the. 1953 Pontiac.
But mord important, it carries on Pon-
tiac's tradition of long life and carefree,
economical dependability.
Come in and see how this great new car
offers wonderful proof that "Dollar for

LETTERS
TO THE EDITOR

2-21-53
Editor Ramsey:
You are acting like some 6 year
Old kid why don't you calm down
and act likh a man. If you do.,t
like it here why don't you go back
to Georgia, or Oklahoma, I think
we can gec along without you.
As far as closing up the Beer
sto:'cs on Sunday you c-nt do that
because Beer is not an alcho.lc
beverage. Why dout you find out
the laws before you go making an
ass out of yourself in an Editorial
You said several days of htavy
rain caused to Ward Tapper build-
ing to fall. That is not so we hadnt
had enough rain to settle the dust
here for a month until the night
the Building fell down. It started
raining about 9 p.m. the Bldg. fell
at 10 p.m. one hr's rain. So it must
of rained very hard to put 32 in-
ches of water on that roof in one
hour.
Dr. Ward was just being a nice
fellow knowing you didn't know
any better when he said it was
caused by rain. If you had since
enough you could look at the
wreckage and tell it was poor con-,
Sstruction In other words a (- )
special.
So why don't you get wise just a
little bit and knock the chip off
your shoulder and be a respected
citizen. Although it is possible you
are right and the world is wrong.
Just remember this A good man
never refuses to take expert ad-
vice. The price of commercial
success is perpetual willingness to
improve.
(This letter was copied exact-
ly as written, gramatical errors,
mis-spelled words and all.)'
(We received the above letter
unsigned Saturday. The fact that
it was unsigned kept us fror
putting the name of the construc-
tion firm he mentioned in the
text. If the letter had been signed
the name would have been there
and somebody would probably
have been sued. So consider
yourself lucky whoever you are.
Now for your answer)
First off, thank you for keeping.
us young. We like it here, so we
are going to stay.
As for our statement about beer,
we have not as yet mentioned
beer in any of our articles, if this
"informed" person would have read
'the articles, they wouldn't be so
"misinformed". In the second place
since you have brought the mat-
ter up, no, we didn't delve into the
law concerning beer because we
were not primarily concerned with
beer. But. beer IS an alcoholic bev-
erage (containing on an average of
4%o alcoholl, and according to
our county law maker, Cecil Costin,
Jr.,.whose job it is to make and
know the laws, beer must follow
the SAME CLOSING HOURS AS
HARD LIQUORS. That is the law,
not my say-so. Maybe we did make
an ass of ourselves, we can't argue
that, but we will say we were try-
ing to make an ass of those who
disregard the law and make the
law read to suit themselves.
Again, you should have read the
text of our writing before you
wrote us, we stated that the build-
ing probably could hold as much
as 30 inches of water, not 32. We
also stated that the only known
cause for it to collapse was the
clogged drainspouts. What reason
would Dr. Ward have for lying
about it? He didn't build the build-
ing, he just had the misfortune to
own it.
We carry no chip on our should-
er except for those who try to hood
wink the people, and it is our job
to tell the people about it. just as it
is the jbb of any self-respecting
newspaper. And, by the way, we
are going to do, just that.
The world may be right and we
may be wrong, but so far you are
the ONLY ONE that has agreed.
with the world and we have talked


to hundreds of citizens of Gulf
County during this "stink" and they
feel as we do or we would be try-
ing in some other direction to get
what the MAJORITY of the people
want. You and the world go your
way, and we and the rest of the
citizens of the county will go OUR
way.
We certainly thank you for your
letter, however, even though it
wasn't signed. because you and
your kind wouldn't squawk unless
you were hurt by the power of
the press.
"This little part of the power of
the press will always throw what
weight it has in the direction of
the right, and we have gone to
Sunday School and Church enough

Tourist Business is

Picking Up In State

STourists are present in Florida in
unprecedented number, Harold Co-
lee, executive vice president of the
Florida State Chamber, of Com-
merce, declared in Jacksonville re-
cently.
"I have current reports from all
the large and several of the small
tourist-catering towns and cities,"
he said, "and where facility vacan-
cies are reported it appears to be
clearly recognized locally that the
condition is due to new construc-
tion, and very likely not enough
advertising."
"I am not prepared to say," Co-
lee continued, "that there has been
overbuilding anywhere in the state
touristwise. Brand new construc-
tion runs into the time factor, al-
ways. Readiness for occupancy of-
ten gets ahead of selling and ad-
vertising planning.
"The crowds that swamp a heav-
ily-advertised new retail outlet are
never present at the opening of a
new -tourist-catering establishment.
Prestige is not yet developed."
Colee was warm in his praise of
Governor Dan McCarty's announc-
ed intention of asking the 1953
legislature to double the State's
annual national advertising approp-
riation.

GARDENS,

ORIENTAL GARDENS
riah... ft Fl-W.

What is more natural to take up
as the subject of this month's
ramblings than the azaleas? Many
of the plants here at the gardens
bave been blooming for the last
few weeks, and according to the
number of buds on some, particu.
larly those around the lake, they'll
,be blooming for many weeks to
come. This is the time of the year
when the South holds its breath in
anticipation of the time during this
month when the azaleas hit their
peak of beauty. It's that time of
the. year the winter visitors love
most
And why not? No flowering
plant decks itself with such a pro-
Tmnson of blossoms as does the
azalea. When in full bloom, the
foliage of the plant is almost com-
pletely obscure.
I won't go into the various types
of azaleas here other than to men-
tion the names of the two most
popular. I'd rather spend more
time on their care. You'll find the
Azalea Indica and the Kurume
most in evidence. Both are very
hardy specimens.
Although the pests of the azaleas
aare few, lacewing fly, or azalea
lacebug will attack the foliage dur-
ing the warm months, most preva-
lently in May and June. A lindane-
base spray will.control these pests.
The same treatment will also eli-
minate caterpillars. Red spider
mites turn foliage rusty, but they
are easily controlled with a one-
pereent oil emulsion spray.. It's a
wonderful idea to mix oil emulsion
and lindane for a general purpose
sray.
nW.t. olut f.:r petal blight fun-
gus. This 'is probably 'the most
trouible'me of "all azalea curses.
Furthermore, it works quickly. The
mass of blossoms that Ipresent
themselves to the morning sun may
be a sorry mess by evening. Di-
thane bab ed fungicides are the
most effective method of treating
this pest.
No discussion on azaleas would
be complete without a word on the
subtle shades of color. Beautiful
though azaleas can be, the im-

proper mixing of their colors can
present a violent clash. The orange
tones will fight with the pinks and
crimson reds. Of course, color
ranges are a matter of taste, but
the whites thrown in will break
less compatible color proximities.
I would like to mention one variety
that is valuable here at the gar-
dent the George Franc. Alone,
it appears pink, yet it has the na-
ture to blend with either the pinks,
roses or salmons and oranges. You
might say it is a "peace-maker".
Azaleas are not the easiest
plants in the South to grow,, but
in spite of insects, fungus and occa-
sional freezes, and in spite of the
fact that "everybody' grows them",
,azaleas go on remaining the popu-
lar flower of Dixie year after year.

"Horse Cocktails" Gone
Ailing horses often used to get a
kick out of life, before modern
science came along with fancy pill
and wonder-workingI drugs. Spme
veterinarians of the horse-and-
buggy da y s considered "rum,
whiskey, brandy, gin port, sherry,
claret, champagne, stout ale, and
lager beer as particularly useful in
aiding the recovery of sick horses."
Today, penicillin, sulfa drugs, and
vltamin-mineral tonics have largely
replaced tha cocktail hour for


quine patients.


Moose Home Caring For
Many Homeless Children

"The most wonderful place in
the world," is the way Miss Ruth
Brede, a U. S. Department of
State exchange student from Bre-
men, Germany, described the
Moose Child City Mooseheart,
Ill., as she spent the holidays at
that community.
Miss Brede, one of 104 German
teachers who arrived in America
on Sept. 10, had been studying at
Peabody' College, Nashville, Tenn.,
Where she saw a motion picture
of Mooseheart. By coincidence,
Moose Supreme Governor Fritchof
T. Sallness of Saginaw, Mich., had
a speaking engagement in Nash-
ville the next night and heard of
Miss Brede's expressed desire to
visit this unusual home and school
for fatherless and motherless chil-
dren.
In short order arrangements were
completed and the young teacher
was on her way to Mooseheart.
She said she would apply for a two
month extension of her visa so that
she could come back in April to
work as a house mother at the
Child City. "It will be extremely
valuable for me because there is


nothing like Mooseheart in all the
world," she said.
We should count our blessings
and be thankful that we are privi-
leged to live in a country where
an institute such as "Mooseheart"
can be maintained.
Part of the yearly dues of over
one million "Loyal Moose" goes
toward supporting this wonderful
child city. Brother "Moose" be
proud that your lodge is taking a
part in operating this wonderful
city.
