ROAD EQUIPMENT MISUSED
If you will get out and meander around
the different parts of the county you will see
numerous roads under construction, many of
them around private developments and to pri-
vate holdings and going no farther.
This in itself seems innocent enough but
a closer inspection will see the county building
these roads and a look at county books will see
the county and taxpayers footing the bill for
the roads (private). We see no harm in the
county building private roads in the county,
but not at county expense. If a private indi-
vidual wants a road to his holdings built and
wants the county equipment to do the job, he
should be required by the county to pay the
expenses of such an operation.
It is our opinion that the county road de-
partment will have its hands full if it maintains
county roads in the way which they need to be
maintained without doing favors for private in-
dividuals at the, expense of the tax payers.
We don't know who is to blame for this
practice,, but the commissioners might look into
the matter and put a stop to the free use of the
county supported road department for private
William Lyon Phelps said: "I do not know
how wicked American millionaires are, but as I'
travel about and see the results of their gener-
osity in the form. of hospitals, churches, public
libraries, universities, parks, recreation grounds,
art museums, and theatres I wonder what on
earth we should do without them."
Everybody's Queer But Me and Thee
America's most exciting chapter in foreign
relations in the years immediately ahead seems
likely to be headed "Asia". Our background is
European, so we have not had much difficulty
in understanding how the European mind works.
But we must completely retool our thinking
if we wish to be intelligent about the Asians
(they don't like to be called Asiatics). With
sincere humility, we well may have great respect
for these people-who had a culture we all might
envy-centuries before Columbus was born! In
his fascinating book, The Voice of Asia, James
A. Michener offers amusing but revealing sam-
ples of the attitudes we must learn to recog-
nize and understand.
"In Bangkok, Siam, they have one of the
world's most beautiful post offices. Very mo-
dern. 'Eight different slots for letters. City
Mail. Air Mail. Up Country Mail. Up Coun-
try Air Mail. Asia. Europe. North America.
Africa. Then at five o'clock a little old man
with a cart comes along and empties each box
into one big pile .
"A Siamese friend of mine had been to Ox-
ford and decided there ought to be better Anglo-
Siamese relations, so he translated Macbeth into
Siamese and put on a whing-ding performance.
But no Siamese audience would tolerate a play
without dancing, so when Lord and Lady Mac-
beth welcomed the king they were going to
murder, there was a big dance, after which Mrs.
Macbeth sang Danny Boy."
WHY DICTATORS WORRY
Laws just or unjust may govern men's ac-
tions. Tyrannies may restrain or regulate their
words. The machinery of propaganda may
pack their minds with falsehood and deny them
truth for many generations of time. But the
soul of man thus held in trance or frozen in a
long night can be awakened by a spark coming
from God knows where and, in a moment, the
whole structure of lies and oppression is on trial
for its life.
Psychiatrists learn to adjust their thinking,
too. One, visiting a hospital for "disturbed" pa-
tients, spoke to one of the inmates. "What is
your name?" he asked. "George Washington,"
replied the patient. "But," said the visitor, "I
thought you told me you were Abraham Lin-
coln the last time I was here?" "That was by
my first wife," the patient answered.

Just the other day we went up
to Mr. Eell's Firestone Store to
pick up the mats for this week's
ad, and were informed by his girl.
,Friday, Delores Denham, that the
gentleman was at home resting but
he had left "us some mats on his
desk. We sauntered back and took
a gander at the mats and saw all
kinds of cross marks and what not
all over abbuit sixteen mats, and
'asked Delores if we were to run
all of them. She came back and
looked at the mats, which are pret-
ty well confusing if you don't
know what you are looking at and
for. Finally we wound up heading
,toward Mr. Eell's house to see
which of the mats were to run in
the paper. We found him "resting"
all right. He was esconched in his
garage,.' scraping, putting, paint-
ing his boat getting ready to go
fishing. "Resting" the girl said.
We have become disturbed by
articles in the Apalachicola and
Blountstown papers here of late in
re duPont's buying up land in this
large holdings of land at tax sales.
The duPonts wrote the Times a
letter a few weeks later and told
the Times that they had only
bought a total of 400 acres of land
in that manner and that this was
under public auction. Even so, if
the people of Franklin don't want
the duPont's to buy their land at
tax sales, they ought to keep the
taxes paid up on .their land hold-
ings, that goes for the people in
Calhoun and Gulf counties also.
But, regardless of how the du-
Ponts get the land, we have this to
say; we don't suppose we would
have given as much for the whole
of either county as they spent ac-
quiring the woodlands in these
counties before the duPonts. These
same people doing the raising of
cain were the same people that
came into this section and got the
land free by staking out their
claim, and when they had all they
could get, they staked out land in
the names of their laborers and
then had the deeds signed over to
themselves. And what did they
have here but land? Nothing but
acres and acres of swamps and
mosquitoes, empty pockets and in
many cases empty stomaches. Now
nobody in either county is starving
or going without anything. There
are many more people here than
If an individual cannot make
land produce even enough to pay
the taxes on the land, why does
he want it in the first place?
We think that most of the com-
plaining is being done by those
who had no interest in the land.
much to their regret, and no land
to sell the duPont's.
At any rate, some of these peo-
ple doing the griping have lived
around here most of their life and
during that time, never had two
dimes in their pockets to rub to-
gether. Now they have dollars in
their pockets due to the duPont's
"exploitation" of this area and are
griping about it. Biting the hand
that feeds them.
The other day John Blount ask-
ed us to mention in this column
that his joint, er "firm" is giving
away silverware with furniture pur-
chases. He didn't tell us the details
but maybe by now he's read enough
about the "deal" to be able to ex-
plain it to you if you go by and
ask,him. If you don't have time to

Seniors Hear Address
By A. R. Anderson
Members of the 1953 class of the
Port St. Joe High School heard an
address this week by A. R. Ander-
son, Supervisor of the Lively Tech-
nical School, Tallahassee.
The speaker pointed out the in-
creasing need for technically train-
ed young men and women in both
industry and the armed forces and
told what Lively Technical School
has to offer in the line of training
to qualify for entering employment.
Mr. Anderson advised that stu-
dents should begin early in taking
aptitude tests to discover occupa-
tional talents and to receive gui-
dance in determining for what line
of work they are best fitted.
Mr. Anderson further stated that
"applications are now being accept-
ed for enrollment in the summer
and fall session". The summer ses-
sion will begin July 13, and the
fall session will begin September
8. Students who desire, may visit
the school any day during the week

'Ranger Warns of Penalty'
For Causing Woods Fires
County Ranger H. A. Hardy to-
day warned residents of Gulf
County that carelessness with fire
in the woods may prove costly.
"Under new Florida forest fire
laws, the man who allows a wild
fire to get started will be liable
for suppression costs, as well as
possible fine and imprisonment,"
Ranger Hardy said.
The laws provide for a penalty
of up to three months in jail or a
$200 fine or both for carelessly
setting a wildfire on someone
"This doesn't mean that a land-
owner can't burn his own land,"
Ranger Hardy said. "But he must
notify his neighbors when he is
going to do so and provide ade-
quate precautions against the fire
Ranger Hardy pointed out that
that the forest fire laws were not
meant as threats but merely as re-
minders that starting woods fires
could be expensive to the offender.

legend was the mainland bordering
the Caribbean Sea.

CROSS COUNTRY CATER
S Mac White
Last night was kind of
rugged. I was bobtailing back
from Miami-which means I
was driving my tractor with-
out a trailer. I'd left the trailer
and four new automobiles at
Miami for another truck driver
to haul to Key West.
Half way between Oak Hill
and New Smyrna my right eye
caught a quick flash in the
east drainage ditch. If it
weren't for my periodical vis-
ual acuity tests, I probably
wouldn't have seen it. I pulled
onto the shoulder, lighted some
flares and walked back.
A New York car was lying
on its side. Its front was like
an accordion where it had
smacked a utility pole. The
driver was wedged in between
the steering wheel and the
seat. He was hysterical. A
woman sitting next to him
was out cold. There was a
little baby in her arms and
the baby was crying. I turned
my flashlight on the speed-
ometer. It was jammed at 9"0
miles an hour.
I took the baby out of the
car. Apparently she wasn't
hurt-just frightened. I
wrapped her in a blanket and
laid her on the seat of my
tractor. Then I flagged down
a motorist .with my flashlight
and told him to highball up
ahead and call an ambulance
and the law. I couldn't tell
much about the couple's in-
juries and my first aid train-
ing warned me "When in
doubt-don't move 'em." But
I got some blankets around
them and applied pressure to
the guy's left arm, which was
bleeding badly at the wrist.
Then I managed to apply a
A little later, I filed my re-
port with the State Highway
Patrolman and my duty was
done. An intern said to. me,
"Mac-that's a mighty good
emergency job you performed
on that arm. You may -have
saved his life."
"That's all part of a pro-
fessional truck driver's job,
Doc," I told him. "But not
many people know it."
But you know-I still keep
thinking about the speedom-
eter jammed at 90. Why do

MOST FLORIDA COUNTIES PAY 3;LOW-AYERAGE
In 1951-52 only 9 of Florida's 67 counties paid averagee sal-
aries as much as the state average of $3,222.40---and this was
$142 below the national average! The county paying the highest
average salary was $1,395 above the county paying the lowest. Only
Broward, Dade, Duval, Hillsborough, Monroe, Orange, Palm Beach,;
Pinellas, and Volusia counties pay average teachers' salaries above
the state average.
When the term "average salary" is-applied to Florida teachers
it should be kept in mind that most of Florida's counties (58
in 1951-52) are below the average!

No matter the size or type of truck you need-what better proof
could there be that a Chevrolet truck is your best buy!
Recently published official registration
figures for the last full year show that truck
users in every single State bought more
Chevrolets than any other make!
It is difficult to imagine more convincing
proof of Chevrolet's superiority, for such
clear-cut and overwhelming preference can
lead to but one conclusion:
Chevrolet trucks must be better, must
enjoy solid advantages over other trucks.
Such preference must rest on a firm foun-
dation of good, sound value. And, of
course, it does-as owners of Chevrolet
trucks can testify.
So before you buy any truck, see how
much more Chevrolet trucks offer you.

Mooseheart Aids Dying
Woman's 3 Children
A Wyoming woman rests in her
Cheyenne hospital bed today, se-
cure is. the knowledge her three
young children are embarking on,
a new life where they will receive
love, care and training until they.
are able to stand on their own.
-Mrs. Frances McIntosh of Raw-
lins, Wyo., is fighting cancer a di-
sease which not only made her
critically ill, but took her hus-
band's life three months ago, leav-
ing the children without a father.
Now facing the'likelihood that
Frieda, i5, Linda, 3, and Michael,
2, are about to lose their mother
and be left without a home and'
care, the youngsters will begin a
new life at Mooseheart, Ill., the
Moose Child City.
There the two sisters and broth-
er will have the advantage of care,
training, education and compan-
ionship, all given without charge
by the Loyal Order of Moose, of
which their father was a member.
Frieda, Linda' and 'Michael will
remain at Mooseheart until they
have completed their high school
educations and are ready to either
go on to college or to begin earn-
ing their own living.
The children lived like hundreds
of other happy youngsters in a
small home in Rawlins where their
father was a railroad man. Last
year tragedy hit the family.
Mr. McIntosh was stricken with
cancer and died in October. The
Rawlins Moose Lodge, which Mc-
Intosh joined three years before,
urged Mrs.'McIntosh to send the
children to Mooseheart, where she
would be able to join them.
But the mother didn't want to
be separated from her children..
Then the doctors at the hospital,
where Mrs. Mclntosh was finally
forced to go, discovered there was
little hope for her recovery from
cancer. They broke the news to her
and she agreed the children should
be sent to Mooseheart.

Pity The State
Legislator In The
Days To Come
By RUSSELL KAY
Mr. Pro and Mr.!Con will be hav-

the next two months with the
"Fors" and "Againsts" running hi-
ther and yon like roaches in a
boarding house kitchen. Legisla-

have been elevated to office, will
be cussed and discussed, pushed

fawned on, wined and dined and
generally made a fuss over by
just about everybody with an axe
,For the'most part, these folks
we send to Tallahassee are honest,
conscientious people who are anx-

their way around and have learned
how to brush off the chiselers and

going plenty tough and, in their
effort to be "nice" to everybody
and serve their constituents at the
same time, they take it on the chin
and become disillusioned and some-
times downright disgusted.

new residents who will want to
find and attend the meetings of
the organizations and church
groups in which they may be in-
terested. Secretaries of all local
organizations are now being con-
tacted for meeting dates to be
listed onr the Calendar. Organiza-
tions wishing listings can secure
them by calling 378.
The bulk of funds raised last
year was used to uniform the Glee
Club. The purpose this year will
be to provide equipment for the
new Music Room which is expect-
ed to be in use next season, among
needed items being music stands,
uniforms to fit the younger play-
ers and a record player and tape
The Calendar this year will fea-
ture a group picture of the ap-
proximately 80 students who par-
ticipated in music activities and

bination of colors. As was the case
