In this week's issue of the Star
o some page or another, you will
find a column by Russell Kay on
"Americanism". In his column, Kay
wonders why American people can
not give correct answers to his-
torical questions in quiz programs,
but can name any movie star, base-
ball park, or any other thing com-
mon to the everyday way of life
We are going to presume that
the reason is that American his-
tory didn't have the advertising
that the more familiar products in
SAmerica have had. Which just
goes to show you, if a product is
good, you still have to let the pub-
lic know about it before you can
.make them familiar with it. And you
must familiarize the public with a
product before you can sell i.
We learned history in school, bui
nobody kept hammering history at
us day in and day out, so we quite
naturally forgot most of it.
We read a very interesting ar-
ticle in this week's Life Magazine,
that we feel everyone should read.
The article concerned the war in
Korea, and through what means
the fighting man could make him-
self go into battle in a war that
is all but forgotten by the home
front. As the author put it, "This
war in Korea is unpopular on thae
home front. In' ohe-r words, it

job that seems rt. ba no end or
no definite beginning. But one
thing for sure, the GI. over there
knows why he is fighting. The peo-
ple at home don't however.
We received a letter the other
day from the Coca-Cola Company
urging us to please capitalize the
word "Coke" when we use it in a
news story. Another one of those
guys who don't care what you say
about them just so long as you
spell their name right.
Wallace Finlay up in Blounts-
town has been crowing for the
past few months about his gar-
den. We don't -have a garden but
we bet Wallace or anybody else
can't produce the variety of weeds.
flowers, grasses or whatever they
are that we have growing in front
of our shop. There is a large var-
iety of weeds.. some people say
some of them are bound to be flow-
ers, and we know we have a weep-
ing willow tree, because we plant-
ed it. And it's growing too. In an-
other four or five years we'll have
shade in our front yard. Now, all
we have to do is find the time to
sit under it.
Well, we see our friend, Ed Bar-

WE'RE DOING SOME WONDERING
We're doing a little wondering now, and
-want some of you readers to straighten us out.
This past week we received some figures
From George Core relative to the County bud-
get and the approval of the tax assessment for
the coming year. Among the figures were some
figures offered for the St. Joe Fire Control dis-
trict, in which we were particularly interested
in. These figures show that non-exempt lands
in the district are assessed at a total of $535,700.
This year the Tax Assessor was instructed to
levy the legal tax on homestead exempt pro-
perty for the purpose of financing the fire con-
trol district. The formerly homestead exempt
property came. to a total of $227,800. Does
:this figure sound right for all the homestead
property from the Bay County line to the Frank-
lhn County line and East to a degree iaark just
above White City, excluding the city limits of
Port St. Joe? We were under the impression
that the homes in Oak Grove were worth that
much. According to our estimating and figur-
ing and estimating, this would make the homes
in Oak Grove and Highland View worth less
than : $1,000 a piece. This doesn't count the
host of beach homes and Beacon Hill, nor the
homes at White City. :
As far as that goes, it seems like the other
figure of non-exempt property is too low, also.
That would make .the! whole of Gulf County
property in this large district, with the excep-
tion of the City Limits of Port St. Joe, worth
813,000 dollars. Tiht s a' mighty little bit.
Now we realize that tax assessments are
below the sale value of property, but why should
they be. Why can't assessments be the same
as market value and thenilage lowered to com-
pensate. Now you say. .what'. the use of-that.
We say that the reason t. for just such instances
as the fire control district (using it for an ex-
ample). At the present assessment, the district
can't produce enough revenue to provide ade-
quate services since the village is setby law
and the county must abide by that law. There
are numerous special local taxes that cannot
produce, enough ,money ,,simply because they,
have a set millage and the assessment is so low
that the money just cIan6t' be raised.
A raised assessment wouldn't mean that
these special ;r\ ices -.would suddenly burst
out with untold wealth, because the millage is
set at a maximum amount and any millage under
the maximum can be levied.
If these figures 4re tie tirnder the present
assessment valuation, kve hiink tlhe county should
be assessed again and a new rating or what-
ever they go by, be set up to take care of the
situation. Here we are:.na k in the middle of
1953 and probably using the same tax assess-
ments that were established when the county

A- not fe-x. He was,
i'hn is ih' ffii an r'espe
child of his age.,
SBut one of the most rmk-
able thifigs about Paul Wt'r liMi
fact that he went far beydffl ~t1f
age. He went so far be~Yid fis'
'own time and place thA t uch
:of what he wrote is as applicable'
to problems of today as it was
almost two thousand years ago.
n many ways, much of Paul's
'writing seems to have been writ-
ten in. our own age O0
What is more, the writings of
Paul seem to reflect in greatness
and purity, exactly the same
,"simplicity that is in Christ." .
To those who would disparage
Paul and say that he is over-
rated, it is suggested that they
concentrate on the positive, pxrae-
tical teachings of the man in re-
lation to Christian living. See
them as the interpretation of
Jesus as the Master of character
1 The lesson from Ephesians
contains one of the dramatic
passages in which Paul describes
the fruits of the spirit and the
true nature of Christian life. .
He draws a picture of the
Christian soldier, equipped with
the armor of God. He is a stead-
fast soldier who is full of cour-
age and fortified by prayer.
Also, he gives us a picture of
the Christian as a member of a
group in which each part has its
,functions.- Where all parts are
'iWrkifie together for the glorify-
ing of the body. This is an ideal
description of society. A goal
that men can strive for. *-"
But the Christian simplicity of
Paul finds its climax in his
'eulogy of love. -
The man who wrote these
words and 'lived the Gospel
-which he preached will be great
forever. He. will be great as a
man in the story of history.
But he will also be great as a
Christian in the wider'scope of'
God's kingdom itself.
Such a man was. Paul.-

how tc act-how to have happiness
--how to go clear up to the under-
taker's door, and no worries. And

'It doesn't matter whether you're
driving in the country or in a city
of 100,000, you'll get'into trouble
unless you drive within the law' de-
clared the patrol commander.
And, he emphasized, those laws
were made for your protection and
adopted after years of research and
continued improvement measures
designed to safeguard your life and
the lives of innocent people.
Many people have the idea, de-
clared the commander, they are not
responsible if they don't know the
law. They think a plea of ignorance
will excuse a traffic violation.
'Nothing could be nearer wrong.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse',
declared Kirkman. Even a tourist is
required to know the traffic laws of
the state through which he travels.
It would certainly not be asking too
much, therefore, that our own resi-
dents know them.

Listening to a quiz program the
other evening I was impressed with
the pitiful lack of knowledge dis-
played by some of the contestants
relative to simple questions that
every alert American should be
able to answer unhesitatingly.
While contestants had no diffi-
culty in answering such questions
as "Name three members of the
pitching staff of the New York
Yankees," or "Identify the loca-
tion of Madison Square Garden,
Shibe Park and Soldier's Field,"
they were stricken dumb and were
still speechless at the bell on such
questions as "Name three mem-
bers of the Supreme Court of the
United States," and "Name the 13
It evidenced the weakness of
our educational system in teach-
ing the simple principles of Ameri-
canism and our failure to do a real
selling job for America in our
schools and colleges.
Young America can promptly
identify Barbara Stanwyck but has
forgotten, if it ever heard of, Bar-
bara Fritchie. W\e know 'more about
"Minute Maid" than we do 'Min-
ute -Men." The name "Sheridan"
registers as "Ann" and not "Phil."
The prefix, "Old" seems more im-
portant in connection with then
name "Taylor" than "Zachary."
It is heartening, in the face of
this deplorable situation, to find
that one of our institutions of
higher learning has taken cogni-
zance of the situation and has es-
tablished a Department of Ameri-
can Culture which now offers stu-
dents a Major or Minor in the field
of "The American Idea."
The American Course was inau-
gurated in the summer of 1951,
with a seminar course on this his-
tory of American Culture. By the
fall of 1952 the complete course
had been organized with 150 stu-
Special Americanism classes in-
clude such subjects as The His-
tory of American Institutions, The
Bible and. Foreign Culture, Ameri-
can Literature, Comparative Gov-
ernment, Exposing the Fallacy of
Communism, History of the Unit-
ed States, Christianity in America,
American Music, American Art,
American Writers, American Cul-
ture, and Management and Ameri-
can Labor Relations.
Florida Southern.College is the
first in the nation to establish a
course in Americanism. It is cer-
tain to spread-to other educational
institutions, and a few years from
now Southern may point with
pride to the fact that here 'began
such an important advance in
Florida Southern's plan of help-
ing to make a stronger and great-

citizens outside of the educational
These folks recognize that a
small independent college needs
fund-s to build such a new deparc-
ment. In the belief that Southern's
leadership will. help encourage
other colleges to give more thought
to teaching Americanism, an
"Americanism in Education Com-
mittee" was recently organized
under leadership of Samuel I.
