Ed. Note: (The following editorial was writ-
ten by Dale Wimbrow, Indian River News, Se-
bastian, Florida. Dale Wimbrow was awarded
the John P. Herrick 1953 first place national
award for his editorial "And The Republic For
Which It Stands" and is twice winner of the
Florida Editorial Oscar presented annually by
the Florida Press Association.)
Whoever you are, wherever you are-don't
sell your newspapers short.
You may not know just what to do WITH
some of them, but there is one thing that is sure
and certain: You don't dare try to do WITHOUT
SSome of them may not be very good news-
papers. Some of the editors may not bother to
exert enough personal effort to write even a
weekly editorial. We grant that this is rank,
editorial dereliction of duty and a flagrant
shirking of public responsibility; but you still
can't afford to do without even that type of
newspaper for it still records the news and it is
still there to publish YOUR views. Editors are
ready, willing and anxious to publish all "Letters
to the Editor."
Perhaps some of your local and national
publications are-biased, prejudiced, steeped in
politics or motivated by factual interests-YOU
STILL CAN'T AFFORD TO DO WITHOUT
THEM. They take you out of what would, oth-
erwise, be a world of silence and ignorance. They
present to you the news-views of what is going
on around you; and even IF they are prejudiced
views, they are better than being forced to de-
pend on word-of-mouth rumor or back-fence
scuttlebutt for "so-called" information.
It is not difficult to recognize biased news.
You can usually, through reverse reasoning, spot
the basic issues; so even the "bad" newspaper
is "good" for you. -
Admittedly, some 'editors are swayed by mer-
cenary motives in aiding certain national or lo-
cal functions of government or public works
projects. That chance you will have to take, be-
cause of the greater overall scope of the publi-

Have you ever seen so many
"weeks" -if one month in y...Ir'h'it.
October is just rurin_' out all
over with special weeks com-
memorating' this and that. Let's.
see now, we have, National News-
paper Week, Fire Prevention Week,
Business Women's Week, Write.a
Letter Week, United Nations Week,
National Flower Week and a few
others. It's going to be a busy
month if you are going to try to ob-
serve all these "weeks".
Joe Malpas, down in Crawford-
ville says this week that he is a
bit "miffed" since we refer to him
as merely a "character". Joe in-
sists that he is something of an ex-
tra-special character and we are
inclined to agree. Also according
to Joe, Wakulla County is just
loaded with characters and he
would appreciate it if people .would
tack the word "super" in front of
his particular character to define
cation in other phases. Again you, generally,
are able to detect the false note, and the process
of appraising and evaluating what you read is
good exercise for your brain-which probably
On the other hand, most editors are no more
likely to deliberately try to mislead you than is
your teacher, preacher or best friend.
Most editors are humbly aware of the sol-
emn obligation of the printed word. They try
to'be as objective and fair as it is humanly pos-
sible to be.
Most editors are supremely conscious of the
fact that a mass obligation of this kind is not
to be handled lightly and that literary prostitu-
tion is a greater sin than the better known car-
YOU also have responsibilities that must be
faced. There are a thousand times when news-
paper readers know they should sit down and
pen a message to the editors. It can be a note
of protest, or a mere expression of personal
views. It can even (praise God!) be a note of
commendation or thanks for something printed
in the newspapers.
Of every one thousand of you who feel the
urge approximately one of you discharge this
personal obligation. And of the other thousands,
who actually don't feel the urge, we can .only
say that the newspapers are their. direct salva-
tion. That they don't realize it is beside the
point. They are those who "never miss the wa-
ter 'til the well runs dry."
It is to your newspapers that you can look
foi the, continuous flow of the essence of true
and personal liberty. .For a Democracy where
you can have your personal freedom by govern-
mental process and put up with occasional offi-
cial abuses OR you can trade your personal
liberty for a low form of animal security under
This is the free choice that you can and
The same choice must be made by you
where your newspapers are concerned. You can
feel secure in your personal freedom while en-
during'some literary abuses:-Editors whi 'write
.through factional dr nmeicenary influence; ,Re;-
porters who slant the news through the same in-
fluence; Columnists who pour out their selfish
views and quote other sources out of context.
These are the occasional abuses you must
accept as a cheap price for the pearl of greater
price: The publications that DO stand guard
over your American legacy of Liberty.
If you dispense with your newspapers' you
lock yourself in a world of stagnation, servitude,
ignorance and silence.
Commend or condemn us, but don't ever
short-change us. Take the bitter with the sweet

completed negotiations for a new
one-year working agreement.
J. S. Gracy, FPC vice president
in charge of labor relations, said
the primary provision of the new
one-year contract is a 5%% increase
in wage rates retroactive to July
23. This increase in wages i. in
line with new contacts signed be-
tween other utilities in this area
and their employees.
Gracy reported that the negotia-
tions this year were carried on in
the same atmosphere of friendliness
and understanding' that has always
characterized the relationship be-
tween the union and the company.
While only 965 of the 1,693, em-
'ployees of FPC and its subsidiary,
Georgia Power and Light Company
'are represented by the union, Gracy
said that a comparable increase in
pay would also be granted, to the
rest of the employees.
In addition to the wage hike,, im-
provements were made in the life
insuranceand hospitalization plans
for employees. It was also agreed
that the company officials would
recommend to the board of direc-
tors and the stockholders. at their
next meeting certain changes in
the employees' retirement pian
which would give employees addi-
tional benefits upon retirement.
"During the.more than 17 years
th, IBEW has represented employ-
ees of our company, our relation-
ship with the union has been one
of harmony and friendly, cooperaS
tion," Gracy said'7"There i_-., beeii
no strike or necessity to resort to
'arbitration during that. time. We.
are happy that negotiations -t0his,
year have been concluded itna ~st-
isfactory manner to both the em-
ployees and the company."
R. R. Kyle, company distribution
'dispatcher and business manager
for the unions, said that union mem-
bers were "highly pleased that an-
other contract has been completed
under the usual friendly atmosphere
that has always.prevailed between
,our union and the company."
