Candidates are making their last
minute promises this week and
feverishly seeking out another vote
in preparation for the Municipal
election which is scheduled for
Tuesday of next week. The election

Ranger Hardy Lists
Forest Fire Increa0e
County Ranger H. A. Hardy
states that the county's fire record
for the month of August, 1954
shows that the county had six in-
tentionally set fires burning a total
of 12.2 acres, 16 lightning fires
which burned 68.1 acres and one
miscellaneous fire burning .2 acres
for a total .wild fires of 23 burning
80.5 acres. Comparing with the
month of August, 1953 the records
show that the county had one in-
tentionally set fire burning 1 acre,
rneeing tne Commissioners were
presented with the problem of
finding more space in the crowd-
ed Court House for the Grand
Jury to convene in comfort. The
Commissioners batted the mat-
ter back and forth for awhile
and then Commissioner Jim S.
Daniels, who is chairman of the
board, tabled the motionruntil
later. Solving a problem by ig-
noring it just won't work. The
Court House isn't going to grow
-by itself. If there isn't-room then
an annex should be rented for
the Grand Jury to convene in.,
It's a pity to have to do it, but
we believe that the Comrission-
ers tabling of the matter proved
that they -realized the vast prob-
lem 'and amount o work that
would be involved in renovat-
ing the Court House.
We hope you folks will ap-
preciate a project that is now in
the making by your local mer-
chants. They are now in the
midst of collecting funds among
themselves to buy more Christ-
,an2s decorations for the streets
to help make our city more beau-
tiful during the Christmas sea-
soil. The merchants have receiv-
ed $500.00 from the city and
are attempting to collect at
least $1,000.00 among them-
selves to light up the main stems
this Yule season. That is a lot
cf money to come out of a fc.v
pockets. The merchants are mak-
ing the gesture to show you that
they appreciate, your traded and
desire you to shop in your own
town. It isn't a selfish gesture,
aswhat benefits them also bene-
;;t --ou. Yoar;ierehants py theI
!ulk of taxes in the town, other
than utilities and the more thde
make and expand, the more tax-
es they pay, thus the more mon-
ey your city lias to spend for
more and improved benefits i'o,
you the citizen. It is a vicious
cycle. The merchants are trying
to do their part; how about you
keeping up your end.

SIKES AUTHORS BILL
At this time, representatives from
the county went to Congressman
Bob Sikes again and laid the prob-

a bill which authorized a survey
of the proposed dam site.

Colonel Fox, journeys to Wewa-

as proposed is practicable.
But this survey is only a part of

There is going to be a lot of
"speechifying" and there is going
to be a lot of eating. And this
part of the program is going to

THE NEIGHBORLY THING
For some time now a sort of "whispered
campaign" has been going on to dam the Dead
Lakes to prevent such a catastrophe as has
now befallen this fisherman's paradise. They
are going down, foot by foot, due to a host of
circumstances, that it is thought a dam would
It has been the hue and cry of a few that
a dam would keep the Dead Lakes at practically,
a stand-still. The people of Wewahitchka and
Gulf County and other Counties affected by
the Dead Lakes have come up in arms since
the advent of the Jim Woodruff Dam at Chatta-
hoochee. That dam has robbed the Dead Lakes
of MUCH water. A host of fish camps that
formerly were on the banks of the Dead Lakes
for unnumbered years, are now sitting high and
dry separated by many yards from the water.
The fresh water fishing business has been hurt
considerably. The income of those living in
close proximity to the lakes has been endan-
gered, not from a force that "might come" but
by a force that "has come". Most citizens are
prone not to get too riled about a matter until
it.happens, or, "don't cross that bridge until you
come to it". These people have come to the
bridge. They are now going to cross it.
The past desciples of the Dead Lakes dam
are now being recognized. The hue and cry of
all Dead Lakes residents has risen up to dam
the lakes. They have even picked out a spot
for the dam.
Thursday, September 23, an Army Engin-
eer and Congressman Bob Sikes will be in We-
wahitchka to inspect the proposed site of the
Dead Lakes dam and the feasibility of such a
project. In other words they will study the geo- .
graphic layout and see if a dam will do the job.
What's the purpose of this discourse? We
don't live on the Dead Lakes? No brother, but
we-you and I, that is, depend on it for many
hours of fishing relaxation. This is looking .at
it from the selfish side. There is another side
to look at the matter from.
Those people up there in Wewahitchka are
our neighbors. They depend, to a great extent,
on Dead Lakes fishing and tourists for a living.
It is the only neighborly thing to do, to give our
moral and physical support by being present
in Wewahitchka on September 23 when the
whole matter will be threshed out. Let's stick
by our neighbors in this hour. They would stick

ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPEN shale doesn't matter. "One thing
Hunters, and other sportsmen as well, have
a right to be proud of their safety record. For,
much as we'll be hearing about hunting acci-
dents from now through next January, these mis-
haps will account for relatively few of the 9,-
600,000 Americans who are killed or injured in
accidents of all sorts every year.
But,'.so long as there are any hunting acci-
dents, we shall have too many of them; and
probably the best way to prevent or minimize
them is to be prepared for what is always the
unexpected. "Emergencies Don't Wait" Week
is being observed this year at the outset of the
hunting season, October 4th to 10th, with this
idea in mind. But you don't need to wait until
then to overhaul and restock your first-aid kit
or home medicine cabinet. In the field, in the
shop or kitchen, accidents won't wait while you
get ready for them.
And before going afield, even the most
seasoned veteran may -3ell review the famous

his family settled so the children
could start school. Then he rushed
back to Florida. One important
stop will be Mulberry, Friday the
10th, where he will be principal
speaker to a meeting of young
democrats. This is to help Con-
gressman Jim Haley-by aspiring
the young Democrats to get to
work. Haley has Republican oppo-
sition in the person of "Smokey"
Sutton-former Democratic mayor
of Lalkeland now turned Republi-
can. Haley should have no serious
trouble. President Eisenhower's
name won't be on the ballot to
lend aid and comfort to his oppo-
r.ent and besides the people of
Florida never have taken to the
idea of voting for mug-wumps. Ha-
ley had stronger opposition last
time and won by four to three.
Look for a better margin this time.

Negro Says Race Has Been Grossly
Misled In His Fight for Civil Rights
(REPRINTED BY REQUEST)
(EDITOR'S NOTE-One of the
soundest articles yet written on the
racial question comes from the pen
o a Negro, Davis Lee, publisher of
a weekly newspaper in Washing-
ton, D. C. One editor refers to it
-s "a spirited and compelling de-
fense of the white Southerners'
treatment of the Negro." The ar-
ticle appears for the second time
in this newspaper below.)
By DAVIS LEE, Publisher
The more I travel, listen and ob-
serve the more convinced I become
that the Negro has been grossly
misled in this matter of segrega-
tion and civil rights.
It appears to me that the first
things should come first, and that
our economic well being is of great-
r -significance than the privilege
of right tobattend a white school or
to associate with white people on an
equal social basis provided by Su-
Si-enie Court decisions and pressure
As a Negro, and an American, I
naturally want to see my race en-
joy every right, privilege and oppor-
tunity enjoyed by any other Ameri-
can but I am opposed to any type
of agitation designed to deprive the
other fellow of a right to be asso-
ciated with his own kind exclusive-
ly. if he so desires. I would like o
reserve such a right for myself and
definitely would not want it en-
croached upon by a Supreme Court
edict or any other kind of interfer-

Mrs. C. G. Rish
While the South does not provide
ample or adequate modern school
facilities for Negroes everywhere,
neither does it provide completely
modrrn facilities for white schools,
because the money is not available
fcr such a vast undertaking. How-
ever, rapid progress has been made
and in Montgomery, Alabama, and
several' their communities the Neg-
ro schools far exceed the white
schools in modernization and phy-
Fical appearance. Neither do the
majority of Southern. Negroes nor
the majority of the white approve
of the present program to disrupt
a custom which has served both
races well down through the years
and contributed so much to the,
Negro's economic security.
PPOSES A QUESTION
Just what would be the future ed-
ucational status of the Negro in
the South if the legislatures of all
the Southern states would enact
legislation withdrawing state finan-
cial support from all schools of
higher learning, starting at the
high school level?f Not only is this
possible, bat if it should come to
pass, the Negro would be unable
to finance his own educational pro-
gram. Negro financed educational
programs have been a failure in
tle past and nothing miraculous
has happened which would cause
Normal person to assume that
the future holds any better pros-
Years ago Southern Negro educa-
Lors made annual pilgrimages to
the North to raise funds for the
support of their schools and this
riractice continued until Northern
philanthropists found out that the
Ncgr't educators were the benefi-
ciaries instead of the schools. The
A\ME Church, the Baptists, the Pres-
byterians and some other minor de-
nominations have been active in the
field of Negro education, but their
achievements have been nothing
to write home about. Not only that,
but every year charges have flown
thick and fash anent the misappro-
priations of school funds. The oper-
ation of Negro schools has not only
produced some of the nation's juic-
iest scandals but is a damaging re-
flection of the Negro's integrity and
his ability to operate and finance
an educational program.
No race or nationality in this na-
tion has excelled or equaled the Ne-
Sgro in educational attainment and
achievement, but this educational
opportunity was not only created by
white dollars but has been financed
by white people throughout the na-
tion. It is an unfortunate fact, that
Negroes contribute very little to
their own community well being
and improvement and this fact
should be taken into account by
those agitators before they initiate
their program for demands in the
Field of education.
Instead of spending thousands of
dollars to finance unnecessary
court fights for privileges which
will cost the race millions in lost
valuable friendships and racial good
will, our leaders should go into the
Negro ghettoes and force the local
grocer to carry prime meats and
sell to our people grade A )products
which will make us healthy.
