Dr. Robert E. King appeared be-

that there was an undue amount
of criticism among citizens of tLe

Licenses Raised To
The City of Port St. Joe this
week started the ball rolling to up
its beer and license rate from the
present $15.00 a year license rate.
By law the City can only charge
half of the license set by the County
for wine and beer license rates. The
County license is $50.00 per year.
The city this week whipped up
an ordinance to, raise the license
rate up to the legal maximum, or
$25.00 per year
The County license rate of $50,00
is set by the State Beverage Depart-
According to City law, an ordin-
ance must be read at three cons.cs
utive meetings to become in ea-
fect. The ordinance was read for
the first time Tuesday night at the
Commission's regular meeting.
The new license rate will taki
effect immediately upon passage by
the Commission. Providing that t he
Commission has no special meet,
ings, at which the ordinance might.
be read, the ordinance will become
effective on August 18. City licen-
sos normally come due on October
1 of each year.
Although the new ordinance will
go into effect on August 18, dealOj$

The City Cle'n is currently mak-
ing a survey-of business l'lcense

Port St. Joe. The survey is being
conducted in order: that the city li-
cense rates may be changed to con-
form with other comparable cities
if they are too far out of line.

against foot-and-mouth disease in
Mexico. Several times during the
past few months, Mexican stock-

reported animals affected with'
symptoms of this disease. In every
instance, however, diagnosis has
shown some other infe lion to be
the cause, such as foot rot or
vesicular stomatitis. The fact that
no outbreaks of foot-and-mouth dis-
ease have been seen in Mexico
since the end of 1949 has given'new
hope that it eventually may be

What UNITED Nations?
Washington, D. C. "I am completely and
unalterably opposed under the present situation
to the admission of Red China into the United
Nations," President Eisenhower told his weekly
press conference. "I personally think," he con-
tinued, "that 95 percent of the population would
take the same stand."
Asked about US withdrawal from the UN
in the event of Red China's admission, the Presi-
dent said that since the UN was "an effort to
rally the moral forces of the world", he couldn't
see how Red China could get in. But, he con-
tinued, ". .. if they should, the question of whe-
ther we would accomplish more good in the
world, whether we could advance the cause of
peace and decency better by going out than
staying in, that is something that would have to
Following up the President's lead in his own
press conference next day, Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles declared that Red China
could not win enough support to be seated in
the UN Security Council-and that if it did we
would use our veto (for the first time) to pre-
vent it. But, perhaps you should be reminded
that we could not veto admission to the UN As-
sembly, which would still be a psychological Red
We believe the President is right in think-
ing that 95 percent of Americans join him in op-
position to seating Red China in the UN. But
we think he might have gone a little farther by
mentioning that we recognize the Nationalist
Government of China, whose ambassador in
Washington is Dr. Wellington Koo, that the UN
recognizes Nationalist China, whose able repre-
sentative in this tower of babel is Tii.gfu F.
Tsiang. -Diplomatically, as far as tlhe. US and '
the UN are concerned, there is no Red China.
A majority of Americans (maybe not 95
percent) is in sympathy, we thing, with the sim-

The Pittsburgh Press recently devoted a
long lead editorial to the current crisis in the
soft coal industry. And it made the point tat
this crisis is far from just eing the concern of
the industry's owners anf operators and em-
ployes. It is of concern to everyone.
The Press described what has happened.
The huge demands of war brought large num-
bers of marginal mines into existence, and when
that demand slackened many of those mines
had to close. More important, competition from
other fuels has cut deep into some of coal's his-
toric markets. The result, to quote directly, is
that we "have a basic industry,.saddled with
high labor costs and mechanized to a high de-
gree, subjected to. new and frightening prob-
lems piled on top of all its old problems."
But the coal industry, looking at it from
the point of view of our strength and security
as a nation, is not expendable. Quoting the
Press once more, "We are told that the industry
has a secure place in the future. Its by-products
are infinite. It now supplies materials for syn-
thetics and plastics. It is indispensable to the
drug industry, as it is also to the making of steel.
Sometime in the future, it will provide synthetic
gasoline and oil."
The over-riding problem, in other words,
is to i maintain coal's vigor so that it will be
eqquip.f d' to meett a vast future need. That
means it must keep existing markets and find
new ones and earn a reasonable profit in the
process. And that, in turn, demands intelligent,
far-sighted action by the people who consume
coal, by the miners who produce it, by the in-
dustry's managers, and by those who are re-
sponsible for laws and governmental policies
that affect it

According to Barry O. Freeman,
chief of Fish Management, it is an-
ticipated that the program will
take two to three years to get a
fairly complete picture of Florida's
fresh water fishing spots.
iDirector Pace said that "with the
increasing number of fishermen, it
is important that we have more in-
formation on our lakes and streams.
We must know where fish man-
agement will be of greatest value,
and the other data obtained during
the survey will be of great benefit
to the sportsmen and tourists in se
electing various fishing spots."
Richard Macomber and Pete
Crittenden, fisheries technicians
have begun work on several of th;
lakes in Leon County. Complete re-
ports of the lakes and streams su--
veyed will be published and made
available to the general public at
a later date, added Pace.
Upwards of 200 of the in ,:c

j| OH, FOR PEACE AND QUiET j
Whether you are a businessman or a housewife. a fellow who
makes the wheels go 'round. or a woman in industry, there
come times when you long for peace and quiet.
You'll find quiet in woods like these, but not a silence. The
wind whispers through the trees. Birds murmur softly. Insects
squeak tunelessly. The soft lap-lap of water against the shore
is like distant drumbeats. There is infinite peace, but never
Much closer to yo.u is another haven of peace-your church.
Here too you will find quiet, but no dead. spiritless silence.
Instead you will find relief from your worries, and inspira-
tion to keep doing your best. You will find the friendliness of
others like you seeking inspiration in these troubled times.
For the peace and quiet that will carry you serenely through
the week, go to Church Sunday.
