A TOUCH OF DEMOCRACY
In the past few years it has been the rule
more than the exception for state representatives
congressman, senators and other assorted spe-
cies of the growth known as "politicians" to
"represent" the people as the politician saw fit,
without asking any, save a chosen few, of their
constituents about their opinions and wants
for their community. But now, right smack in
the middle of all this "remote control represen-
tation" we-have our state senator and state rep-
resentative, George Tapper and Cecil G. Cos-
tin, Jr., coming right out in the open and ask-
ing the people of the county just what they want
il the way of legislation for our particular cor-
ner of the state.
This is being written before the meeting
will take place but we trust there will be a
large delegation at the city hall to express their
views and we hope even further, that the sena-
tor and representative follow up all worthwhile
All through the annuls of history, we have
read of nothing but corruption in our govern-
ments. Some of the most famous men in his-
tory had some of the most corrupt regimes of
anyone in history. Believe it or not, but accord-
ing to students of history and government, cor-
ruption in government is slacking off.
We know that what we see now is pretty
grim. But at least we do see or know what is
going on and are taking steps to correct it. Some
of these'steps seem to be blundering steps, such
as the ones being taken by our national govern-
ment, but they are steps. If the will of the
people is strong enough and their will is known
in no uncertain terms to their representatives in
government, the mess will be straightened out
or the people will do something about it.
Yes sir, Senator Tapper and Representative
Costin are stepping just a little out of line of
the politicians trodden path of secrecy, but let
us hope than they step farther out of that path
and strive to give us a little old-fashioned

Editor THE STAR
Like most of us here, I enjoy the
nice publicity that Port St. Joe and
area receives from the Panama
City News-Herald. Only recently,
they ran a' good story on the com-.
ing development by Sinclair Oil
Then, some misguided reporter
comes along and spoils all the good
feeling which good publicity pro-
motes by 'making the completely
unfounded '' statement that the
sands on our beaches are far, far
down the list in comparison wich
the whiteness of that of Panama
City as well as other Florida cities
of neighboring states, which they
I don't believe that the majority
of our friends in Panama City
share that belief. In the first place,
most of the other cities which he
mentioned would not even com-
pare with Port St. Joe. In the sec-
ond place, I am wondering just
where does oui poor reporter con-
sider that Panama City Beaches
end and Port St. Joe beaches be-
gin. Could it be that he (or she)
might be taking in the shore line
all the way to Highland View?
Aside from that section of beach
south of us, where the big muddy
tends to discolor the sand, I know
of no strip of sand north of High-
land View that would not compare
with Panama City beaches. Per-
haps our friend is trying frantically
to lure some of the tourist trade
back that is surely and not slowly
coming our way. Or perhaps he
(or she) is using, such publicity
to cover up sime of the not-so-fav-
orable points of his (or her) sec-
It's a good thing. that nothing
was said about the sand around
Fort Walton and Santa Rosa
Sound. Maybe Panama City has
already annexed that, also. How
about it, neighbors?
'Dear Harry Probably they fi-
gure that beaches go along with
that old saying about the meat be-
ing better "higher, on the hog" and
figure the sand ought to be better
"higher on the coastline."

We were in receipt of a very in-
teresting letter this past week. We
received a notarized letter from
Damon Peters from the colored
quarters proclaiming the fact that
he was in no way connected with
the. nurwbers racket. We think it
would be a good idea for all of the
prominent colored citizens ito go on
record with the same statement.
We are also of the opinion that
these same leading colored citi-
zens should join. in the effort ito

You know, a racket like that
can't operate without customers.

would take steps to educate their
citizens from this practice and try
to ferret out their operators they
could raise their esteem in their
fellow citizens eyes.

that spring had sprung so we wan-

weeping willow trees recently plant-

just busted out all over with tiny
green leaves. Then were sure that
spring had sprung. Well later on
in the day we journeyed to the
front door again to savour some of
that good clean air (untarnished
with paper mill smoke) and no-

that they had been neatly plucked
off by two little mischevious hands.

erts, associate professor of trans-
portation and economics, is un-
baised and whether you are for,or,
against toll highways you will find
it worthwhile reading.
In his carefully prepared survey,
Professor Roberts points out that
highway inadequacy is nationwide,
plaguing virtually every state, and
not peculiar to Florida alone.
Detailed studies of this state's
highway system reveals a discour-
aging picture of accumulated defi-
ciencies with bleak prospect for
their correction. Effective moderni-
zation of our highways to meet
present day needs would require
an outlay of nearly a billion dol-
lars during the next three-years.
Available revenues under our pres-
ent system will only produce about
one-fifth of this amount.
In 1951 the Florida State Primary
System consisted of 9,572 miles,
representing 18 per cent of the to-
tal ;mileage. This network, how-
ever, handled 55 per cent of the
traffic and had 80 per cent of the
deficiencies anticipated over the
next .two decades.

of toll or in increased gasoline
taxes. If all motor vehicle taxes
went for road construction it would
still prove far short of the need,
but in Florida motor vehicle taxes
are diverted to other uses to the
end that the motorist is paying
more than his share of taxes.
Increased motor traffic, both
tourist and industrial, reveals the
fact that our economic future rests
on our ability to provide adequate
highway transportation facilities.
Our great ,tourist industry, citrus
industry, cattle industry as well as
countless lesser industries all de-
pend on highways for their future
growth and development.
It is apparent that we must turn
to a means of providing highways
that will not involve-widening and
straightening those that now pass
through heavily populated areas
where right-of-way costs would be
exorbitant. We cannot continue to
route arterial highways.through the
center of town but must find new
routes for throughways that can
be acquired at a minimum of cost.
Every day we delay means the tax-
payer must pay more.
It is a serious problem and one
that every citizen and taxpayer
would do well to study.
