ONLY TWO MORE WEEKS
Do you realize that less than half of the
eligible voters in Gulf County have re-registered?
Do you realize that this other half CANNOT
VOTE this year in the coming elections unless
they are re-registered? It is a solemn fact and
one that needs the immediate attention of all
who have not, as yet re-registered to vote.
This- newspaper has done its best to put
across to the people of this community that they
must re-register in order to vote as the registra-
tion system in the County is being completely
changed and the old voting list has been chucked
down the drain to make way for a newer more'
efficient system. Coupled along with this need
for re-registrationi is an important election about
to take place on May 4 with several important
County, State and National offices to be decided
by ballot. But-Only the ballots of those who.
have re-registered. Are you among those few?
If not, we strongly urge that you contact your.
registrar in Wewahitchka IMMEDIATELY and
re-register in order that you might have a choice
in the choosing of the men for these important
offices. Don't shirk your duty and privilege to
vote for the man of your. choice.
The deadline for re-registering is April 4-
just one month before election day. Of course
you rpay re-register any date after April 4 but
you must re-register by then to be eligible to
cast a ballot on May 4.
DO IT NOW!
Harold S. Hulbert said: "Children need love,
especially when they don't deserve it."
This is going to be bad news for the kid
who got to go on boat rides and fishing trips
just because somebody, had to do the bailing.
More or less coincidental with the H bomb and
color television, an outboard motor builder has
now provided, as standard equipment, a built-in
automatic bailer that takes care of this sloppy,
back-breaking job, whether the water is seeping
through the bottom, coming over the gunwales
or is pouring down from a sudden thunder
The pumping action is continuous, with the
motor running forward, in neutral or reverse.
At idling speed, the bailer pumps a gallon of
water a minute, we are told. And if that's not
enough, you can speed it up until you have prac-
tically a fire-engine in reverse, squirting more
than 150 gallons an hour back inot the river
. Soggy sneakers are old-hat.
TWO STARS NEEDED
Some months ago, speakingof, statehood
for Alaska as well as Hawaii, some said, "Let's
Make It 50". Senate action in voting to com-
bine statehood measures for the two territories
is, we can hope, an echo of this sentiment and
a forecast of their induction into the Union.
For Alaska it would mark the achievement
of a long-sought goal, full citizenship in a land
that has been American for 87 years and a terri-
tory for 32. And, as Senator Henry M. Jackson,
(Dem) of Washington, has pointed out, it would
serve notice on Russia, wrom whom we bought
Alaska, that this half-million square mile domain
is "not just our property, but part of our democ-
racy". (It would, of course also be part of our
The delay in considering admisison of Alas-
ka, corapared with the dizzy speed with which
that johnny-come-lately, Hawaii, became a can-
didate, is explained as a matter of economics.
Hawaii, with her rich sugar and pineapple in-
dustries, is ready to pay her way as a state; while
Alaska, potentially one of the richest areas in thei
world, has been considered a poor-rel4tipgnthat
might be embarrassing to have in the family.
But Alaska's lack of industrial activity could:
change overnight-if the Govenmrit"mntvould re-"
lease to private enterprise some of the millions
of acres of forest that right inow are spoiling
for cutting, or the vast oil, reserve that the Navy
plans to turn back to the Interior Department,
In fact, an Alaskan bt~m could give all
American business a shot in the arm.. And there
could hardly be a better time for it.
