WE'RE FOR IT
Last week the City Commission was ap-
proached with the proposition of buying radio
equipment for the police department as a so-
lution for the shortage of manpower on the de-
We are for it.
For some time past we have advocated
the purchase of radios for the department and
now a responsible civic organization, the Ki-
wanis Club, has formally requested the com-
mission to purchase and install the equipment.
It may seem pretty far fetched to the aver-
age person as to how much good radio equip-
ment would do a one-car police force. Although
it is presumptious on our part to take for grant-
ed that the telephone company would allow
a short-wave radio in their operators booth, --
assuming that they would -- if a call comes in
for the police in the dead of the night, when
only one officer is on duty, and he is out patroll-
ing it would be a hard matter to reachhim by
telephone. We will take for instance what hap-
pened a few nights ago. A girl on Third Street
thought she saw a face in her window and she
screamed for her mother and father. They in-
vestigated and called the police. The police
were patrolling, but as soon as they reported
back to the station they were dispatched to the
scene of the disturbance. If they had been
"equipped with radios, they could have been
called to the scene immediately and might have
apprehended the prowler. There are numerous
other advantages but such an advantage as this
is enough cause.
The city fire department could also be
hqoked up with the police department. The
fire department has radio equipment n:iow and
it has saved many houses and much property
simply by being able to call for help immediate-
ly when it was needed. Radio's aid to the fire
department should be testimony enough as to
what radio on the police equipment could mean
lo safety of the citizens of our town.

the end of 1945. It will have 740,000 next No-
vember. Its capitalization grew from $91,000,-
000 at the end of 1945 to $189,000,000 at the
end of 1953, and is headed toward $435,000,000
in 1961. Where it had 2,061 employes at the
end of 1945, it had 4,358 when 1953 closed, and
will need about 8,000 in 1951. Its rate of return
has been comparatively uniform, and it has been
able to pay fair dividends to the owner-stock-
holders who make its existence possible. Power
rates are low.
Many factors have contributed to this re-
markable record of growth. One of the impor-
tant ones is the state public utility commission's
approach to regulation-an approach which Mr.
Smith called "the most fair and sensible I have
ever known." Basically, the formula is a simple
one. The Commission's general counsel has
described it in these words: "The Florida Com-
mission has never been greatly concerned over
the rate of return. It has been much more in-
terested in the dollar requirements of the utility.
How many dollars does the utility require in
order to meet its operating expenses, deprecia-
tion charges, taxes, maintenance expenses, debt
service, dividend requirements and transfer a
reasonable amount to surplus?"
This policy has made is possible for the
company to attract the new capital'needed. And Our price is less than that or any
that, in turn, has made possible its growth and boat trips that I know of. From the
oft repeated praises of the many
progress, which has worked to the benefit of all visitors, I can only assume that
business and individuals in its territory. When our trips are equivalent if not su-

it to go ,ahead, we get striking results.
IT CAN BE CURED
By a clear-cpt vote of 55 to 36, the Senate,
last Wednesday night, expressed its approval of
President Eisenhower's order that the Atomic
Energy -Commission supply private power to
the TVA. The vote followed eight days and
nights of argument on this most controversial
aspect of the Administration's new Atomic Ener-
gy Bill. But the losers moved back into the
arena, with Oregon's talkathon champion, Wayne
Morse, launching a filibuster with six hours of
what he termed "batting practise".
At this writing, the continuous session had
passed the 38 hour mark and Majority Leader
William F. Knowland had made no progress in
his efforts at checking the aimless oratory. Whe-
ther or not this exhibition will threaten the 54
hour record established by the Ship Purchaes,
Act debate in 1915, only time can tell. But it
is already clear that July 31st adjournment is now
a forlorn hope, and that the statute of the Sen-
ate has not improved much through the years.
There would see mto be little statesmanship in
niere mouthy obstruction of vital legislation, and
less sportsmanship in refusing to recognize the
will of an impressive, majority.
Actually this grotesque and childish travesty
on debate, an excrescence peculiar to American
government, is the product of that outworn no-
tion that Congress should be in session but half
the year. But for the feverish urgency of ad-
journment each summer, filibusters would be
entirely pointless. Thus, the disappearance of
this outlandish abuse of parliamentary rules
would be among the lesser advantages of putt-
ing the Congress, like the rest of our adult occu-
pations on a twelve-month basis.
prior to any.
I do hope that you will let me
hear from you soon. I will be de-'
lighted to have you as my guest.
It seems that you should give us
the opportunity to prove that we
do have the mastadon bones and
that our alligators are not stuffed,
for I don't think the public which
read your article should be misled
in believing this about Wakulla
'Springs. I know that a man of
your integrity would not want to
misrepresent anything in your col-
umn and would welcome a chance
to rectify a misleading statement.
With kindest regards.

(ED NOTE) Thank you Mr.
Stane or your letter and especially
for your compliment as to our in-
tegrity. After reading your letter
we went back and read our com-
ments on Wakulla Springs. We did-
n't think we were so harsh.
As we interpreted the column,
we were' just a bit miffed that our
day of enjoyment was overshadow-
.ed with rain, which we could in no
way hold Wakulla 'Springs, account-
able for and for the fact that we
saw no mastadon bones which we
could hold Wakulla Springs' ac-
countable for. As we stated in the
column, we felt that the trip was
cut short by rain,, but the guide
should have explained thisi to the
paying customers. On our perusal
of the column we find that we gap-
ed at the price until we found that
it covered the 'price of a trip thru
the jungle and were then mollified.

Angry owners of a particular com-

pulsations, stiffened and failed un-
der temperature changes. The prob-
lem was resolved by substituting
Inconel, a nickel-chromium-iron al-
'cy, strip for the diaphragm.
