JUVENILE DELINQUENCY or
Here of late the local police have been bo-
thered with a rash of juvenile delinquency (or
parent delinquency). Several times during the
past six months the police have picked up teen-
age boys for small 'crimes, but nevertheless,
crimes. The boys have been sent to the juvenile
court in Wl ewahitchka and through the interven-
tion of parents or other persons, ninty-nine per
cent of the boys have come out of the court
scot-free, or at most under a parole that is not

Several people have asked us in
the past few days if there isn't
something. that can be done about
the condition of the city water.
First off let us say that the wa-
ter i's not unpure. The summer rate
of water consumption is great-
er than the output from the good
wells that the city has down and
on occasion it is necessary to pump
Sfromi an auxiliary well which puts
out sulphur water,
That black in the water is noth-
ing more than sulphur. The fact
that it is pure still does not detract
from the fact that the water is un-
tasteful and has a disheartening
effect on clothes and people when
a .washing of same is attempted.
Now comes the solution. The city
under the present administration
-has been taking steps for the past
year to supply a plentiful supply of
elear pure water for the city. The
project is now practically com-
pleted as far as making plans, is
concerned and the actual construc-
tion of a purifying plant will start
tn the very near future.
The city is now completing plans
to buy water from the St. Joe Pa-
-per Company to be supplied out of
their canal bringing water from the
Chipola River. This water is about
94 per cent pure already. The city
is going to erect a treatment plant
to filter the water through and are
making plans and conducting sur-
veys throughout the city to assure
am adequate water supply for Port
St. Joe in years to come and are
.planning to allow for any expan-

dustrial School for a short while? Most of the
boys sent to the court are two and three time of-
fenders. The boys are becoming hardened cri-
minals. Now don't laugh. We have observed
this. There are a few boys in town who keep
getting into trouble and committing pettit
crimes. The police have caught them time af-
ter time and sent them up to the juvenile court,
only to be turned loose. As a consequence, the
boys are now getting the idea that they can do
anything they please and the police or nobody
else can do a thing about it but just talk to them.
This is an unhealthy attitude. We believe the
teen-agers should be talked to severely and repri-
manded and made to toe the line' at home after
the first offense. If the act is repeated, how-
ever, the boys should be shown that society will
not put up with such actions. It's a hard thing
to suggest that a young boy be sent' up for, a
crime, yet how else are you going to nip a cri-
minal career in the bud. A closer supervision
by parents would also aid in seeing that these
a-nd other boys go in the right direction.
ARE YOU REGISTERED?
September 5 is the date for the coming city
election. There are now 859 registered voters in
the city. A mayor and two councilmen will be
elected by the citizens of Port St.- Joe. If the
candidate you like is not elected and you do not
register to vote, don't blame anyone but your-

"Why should I pay 80 cents a gal-

myself?" So, early one morning
before I had even waked from the
arms of Morpheus, she donned her
jeans, grabbed a bucked and drove
off to the berrying site.
Along about 10 a.m. she hadn't
returned, and I began to" wonder-
,how far afield she had wandered
in search of the berries A
short time later tthe car drove in
and she came in with about two
gallons of berries.
"Took you that long to pick those
few berries?" I asked.
"Well. no," she 'hesitantly re-
plied. "I got stuck in- the sand. Mr.
and Mrs. Hanlon happened to drive
by on their way to Wewa and they
sent out a wrecker to pull out the
car. I didn't have,any money, so I
told the man I would stop by and

We stopped by to pay the man.

Weekly Newspaper Editors Writing
Editorials Over Average Reader Level
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -Weekly

erally, editorials that are too diffi-
cult for their readers to under-
A study of 20 Florida weekly
'newspapers at Florida State Uni-
versity school of journalism re-
vealed that 17 of the newspapers
carried editorials that, on the av-
erage, could be understood by less
than half of the adult population
in the county where the paper was
,The study'was made by Miss Ruth
Peeling, graduate student in jour-
nalism, in partial fulfillment of re-
quirements for her master's de-'
The 20 papers were analyzed ov-
er a. period of one month, March
1953. A total of 212 editorials were
rated according to "readability".
This was done statisfictlly by us-
ing a mathematical formula. Com-
parison of the "grade level" at
which the editorials were written,
with the median education level
in the county where the paper was
published, made it possible to de-
termine whether the editors were
writing editorials, that people
The study was undertaken in an
attemDt to find outt why editorials
are not more popular with read-
ers. It was based on the readabili-,
ty formula developed by Dr. Rudolf
Flesch, outstanding authority in
the readability field.
As a result of the study, Miss
Peeling'says that editors can make
their editorials more "readable"
and thereby more popular by aim-
ing them at the type of audience
who will read them. The editor
should be familiar with the median
education level in his county and
not write "above the heads" of 'his
He should use short sentences
and the simple rather than the
complex word. The writer'"hould
further help the reader by telling
,him what is irnportan't to re&nem-
ber, prepare him for what he is
going to read, and summarize for
him what he had read. Non-essen-
tials should be cut out of editorials,
facts should be arranged for em-
'phasis and punctuation should help
speed up reading as well as clarigy
meaning of words and sentences.
NWriting about people and using
concrete illustration always makes
'for more interesting reading than
writing in abstract terms, accord-
ing to readability rules. This should
be applied, in writing editorials,
states Miss Peeling.
After graduation Aug. 8, Miss
Peelin will return to the editorial
sitaTi of The News-Times, More-
head City, 'N. C.

Religious or Racial
Prejudice Was Not
Frocticed by Jesus
7(I-TE of the most amazing and
revolting incidents of our
time is the spectacle of certain
people preaching and practicing
racial and religious prejudice in
tbic name of Christ. And much
of this prejudice has been di-
rected against Jews, of which
religion was Jesus himself, and
from whom we received not only
the riches of the Old Testament,
but the records of the New,' and
the church itself. :
When Paul spoke of the Gos-
pel of Christ, he emphasized its
universality. His mission 'and
ministry, he insisted, were to
Gentiles as well as to those of
his own religion.
Was Paul a true interpreter of
his Master? Or did Jesus in any'
way limit His mission, or the
benefits and privileges of the
grace of God?
There are one or two in-
cidents that, viewed lightly or
thoughtlessly, might indicate
that..But the whole story of
Jesus, the revelation of His
spirit and the general-records of
the four Gospels, are so much
-against any such interpretation,.
that these incidents must be seen
in the light of the full evidence.
One of the most puzzling inci-
dents is that of Jesus and the
Syrophenician woman. This
troubled Grecian woman had
brought her demented daughter
to Jesuc, beseeching Him to heal
v'.'r:ently to test her faith He
-...pft in her way stumbling blocks
that seemed harsh and even
cruel. Voicing the common re-
ligious and racial prejudice, He
raid, in effect, "Do you ask this
of Me, a Jew? It is not meet to
take the children's bread and
give it unto dogs."
But He was' voicing, not His
own thought, but the sort' of
i.ng' that racial and religious
prejudice thinks and says, for He
was about to bless the woman
and her daughter. And He drew
from the woman the reply that.

"Horse Cocktails" Gone
Ailing horses often used to get a

aiding the recovery of sick horses."
