Jack Stevens, Assistant Secretary

Association, meeting, Thursday eve-
ning at the Elementary. Building.
He used as his topic, "What'. Hap-
pening To Our Schools". Hestated

600 vacancies existed in the other
Not since the 1940 war years
have superintendents had such dif-
ficulty finding qualified people to
teach Florida's children. Business,
industry and government service
are actively competing for the ser-
vices of college trained people and
they offer more attractive salaries
to beginners than Florida's county
schools can offer. He brought out
the fact "that unless more of Flor-
ida's counties are able to pay high-
er teacher salaries to meet the
competition of other states and of
private industry, Florida cannot ex-
pect to attract and hold a sufficient
number of qualified teachers to
man its classrooms".
Teaching is the heart of the
learning process. Florida cannot
ha ve an educational program
which will be rated,among the best
without a corps of competent teach-
ers. Without good teachers we can-
not have good schools.
Mr, Stevens read a portion of the
brochure put put' by thue Florida
Educational Association which rec-
ommends that Florida must pro-
vide sufficient beginning salary to
enable those trained for teaching
to accept teaching positions with-
out economic loss; have salary
schedules high enough to be suffi-
ciently attractive to young men
and women to cause them to be
willing to enter the teaching pro-
fession and high enough to be at-
tractive to young men and women
to cause them to be willing to en-
ter the teaching profession and
high enough to be attractive to
those already in the work in Flor-
ida; set up incentives for advanced
training sufficient in amount to
make teaching attractive as a life-
time occupation; have a retire-
ment system stable enough to
guarantee reasonable security to
the individual after his years of
active service. Only by providing
these things can Florida assure its
present and future citizens that
their children throughout th'e state
will have the benefit of the kinds
of schools the people have said re-
peatedly they want.
Tom Owens, County Supreinten-
dent introduced the speaker. Mu-
sic was conducted by Miss Norma
Jean Lewis and the devotional was
given by Rev. W .L. Lindsey.

Thursday night of last week saw'serious re-
sults of the rising amount of juvenile delin-
quency here in Port St. Joe.
Three boys at the high school had made
themselves troublesome to the teachers for some
-time by cutting up in class, skipping classes and
other means of disobedience. The high school

Iby ESLEY R. RAMSEY
Well goddy goody gumdrop, our
ranting and .raving about these: ill-,
egal liquor sales on Sunday has
finally paid off. One of the main
sourcess of supply of Sunday liquir
-was picked -up by the State' 'mii
Sunday, 'two weeks ago, and char-
.Zed with the sale of whiskey after
hours. Maybe justice isn't quite so
-dead as a lot of people thought.
Buck Griffin showed us a stack
at lottery tickets about she-high
the other day, that he had liberated
from a pusher that he had arrest-
ed. Even at ten cents a ticket,
there was enough there to amount
-ap to-quite a piece of change.
'They sure made a nice fire, too.
Did .you know that the only charge
'the local policemen can stick to a
'person they pick dealing in lottery
is "vagrancy"? There is no law on
the city books allowing an arrest
-.s a person dealing in lottery.
"Alligator Rufus", down at Apa-
laehicola, has finally come up with
an idea that we like. He expounded
last week on the subject of the
legislature passing a law requiring
each automobile owner in the state
to carry liability insurance. A bet-
iter thing could not happen to the
state. If an auto driver, runs into
.someone or something and causes
damage, he is automatically out a
lot of money he doesn't have or
a kind and benevolent soul offers
to bear the cost of his own repairs.
-We think it is a good idea for the
legislators to work on. Require
each motorist to carry a 5-10-5 lia-
Ibility policy or be able to post
$10,000.00 bond imifiidiately on a
moments notice. Personally we
-wouldn't drive without liability in-
SWe wonder also when "Alliga-
tor" is going to acquire the intes-
tinal fortitude to put his name' on

their big rimuth' shut.
W. often wondered why the

ator'McCarthy,-hut- thetlother:- diy
ye -'ere of the opinion, just for
had to expell the boys from school in.order to
get peace for the other children and the teach-
ers and get their classes running normally again.
Apparently, the boys didn't "cotton" to
this so they just got together last Thursday
night andtook a little-ride to discuss their mis-
treatment at the hands of the school officials.
Evidently boast led to 'dare and the boys
began to get a little hot under the collar, the
More they discussed that thing.
As a climax, the -boys went over to Monu-
ment Avenue, which:is being',renovated and
"borrowed" a flambeau and -proceeded to the
Ayers'. abode and put the still flaming torch
on the front porch and turned it over on its side
so, that oil would run out of 'the torch arid run
on' the porch floor to be set on fire -from- the
torch's.wick. As luck would have it, the Ayers'
had just retired and when the boys scratched
off in their car, Mr. Ayers jumped up in the bed
startled by the racket and noticed the shadow
on the wall caused by the leaping flames.
He ran out and kicked the torch off the porch
and stamped the remainder of the fire out.
Such actions as this-hints of 'misguided
energy. It also hints, STRONGLY of a need
for some sort of recreation or tfit killer for the
young people that will keep them headed in the
right direction as well as provide a means of
working 'off that extra steam.
This is not just a talking and tongue cluck-
ing-matter. It is a matter demanding immed-
iate action. This is only a taste of things to
come. Are we going to stand idly by and watch
our young people go down the drain, as far as
, their usefullness-to society is,concerned? ,
the 'moment, that they had made a
wize choice. The loud-mouthed
Senator went about his business
on the Q. T. and signed the coun-
try of Greece up on the honor roll
of countries that would agree to
stop carrying shipments of goods
for Red dominated, countries. 250
more ships that the Kremlin has
to "liberate" somewhere or else
go to the expense and' trouble of
-building them. Good iold Greece;
we hardly lift a fingeir for them
and here they come through with
flying colors on the right side of
the fence. Then, we have all those
other countries in Europe that
have received billions in U.S. aid
and they're still undecided as to
which direction they will turn in.
Oh, the irony of it all (and the

'Here we had a birthday last week

Last Tuesday night the firemen
all gathered down in the fire house
and did a regular policing up job.
The trucks were washed and the
new truck polished and waxed and
the station floor was scrubbed and
everything was just spit and po-

to Sunshine Park Race Track at

Walking about the grounds he

was a winning ticket. Thinking
that someone had either lost it or
thrown it away not realizing its
value he took it .to the cashier's
widow and turned it in.. The man
at the window asked him to wait
a minute. Shortly, two officers
came up and put him under arrest.
They claimed he was trying to
cash a "tampered" ticket. He ex-

asked the man at the window if it
was any good.

During the visit Mrs. Wilson
spoke to the group on -the care
that is given patients, the equip-
ment used and the average length
of time the patients spend at the
hospital. A Gulf County patient at
the hospital was visited.
The kitchen proved to be of
much interest, too, to the group
attending. Everything from the
three huge refrigerators for the
vegetables, meats, and milk pro-
ducts to. the, special diet -kitchen
was seen. The highlight was see-
ing the trays being prepared for
the patients. The pyrex dishes were
first warmed, the food placed in
them, and- a metal lid placed over
them which will keep the food hot
for two hours.
Before leaving town the group
enjoyed shopping in Tallahassee.

CABBAGE IN MANY WAYS
Cabbage is one of our Florida
foods about which all good things
can be said. It is abundantly grown .
nutritiously-worthwhile, and deli-

many delightful ways. A wedge of
crisp, clean, raw cabbage gives a
pleasing texture and freshness to
a meal and may serve as a salad.

Many home-grown vegetables
combine well with shredded cab-

Do you cook cabbage too long?

News of Port St. Joe High'School
By MARTHA COSTIN
Everytime you pick up a .new.s
paper there is some account of teen
age crime. This is not restricted
to larger communities, because
even in our own community, just
recently, we have had some. There
must be a reason behind this crime
and I believe that we have the so-
lution, or at least part of the solu-
tion. Port St. Joe is a rapid grow-
ing community with many modern
facilities, but there is no place for
the teenagers to go. The places
where they have been going, have
been taken over by some of the
adults who have made it indecent
to go there any longer. I believe
that the solution to the problem
is in a recreation, center,, where
the kids can go and play, get to-
gether and read, a place strictly
for teenagers where they may feel

free to go at any time. Several
attempts have been made to form
recreation for one night a week,
but that proved unsuccessful for
several reasons. One reason was
that it was only open one night a
week, but we need something that
is open at all times. We need a
place where teenagers can meet
under decent surroundings and en-
joy clean, wholesome recreation.
Some of you parents may say
that when you were growing up
that you made your own recrea-
tion, you didn't need a special
place to go. But did you ever stop
to think that when you were grow-
ing up that you could take a stroll
in the woods or 'down a country
lane. Now, everything is so modern
istic that you can no longer do this.
'The teenagers of our city are
willing to do all our share and more
in obtaining a decent place for
recreation. Are you behind us?
