this city Friday night around 8:15.
Wolloughby, who had both legs
cut off just below the knee was a
familiar sight around Port St. Joe
where e sold pencils on occasions.
His address showed his home to
be in Thomasville, Ga., but as yet
no relatives have been located.
Willoughby started across the
street on Monument Avenue just
in front of the Wimberly Pontiac
Company used oar lot. Roberts was
driving down Monument toward
the beach. It was raining and Rob-
erts met another car just as Will-
oughby stepped in front of his car.
Officer M. A. Kelley, of the local
police force investigated the acci-
dent and said that skidiA'arks in-
dicated that Roberts was travelling
at a slow rate of speed well within
the speed limit. He listed the acci-
dent as unavoidable and no charg-
es were preferred against Roberts.

The County proposed the plan
to buy a -bull-clam with funds de-
rived from city, county and state
sources to carry out the land-fill
operations. The total funds would
be around $40,000.00.
According to the plans the Coun-
ty worked up the equipment would
be stationed in Port St. Joe and
would be transported to Wewa-
hitchka for two half .days a week
and would also be transported to
o'.her settlements in the county to
provide a county-wide operation.
The City of Port St. Joe rejected
this plan due 'to the fact. that it
was felt that the City would not
get its p'ro-rata share of use out
of the operation. This conclusion
was reached at by the fact that
Port St. Joe would give $5,000.00
to the fund and also pay over three-
fourths of the tax money in that

MORE THAN WE NEED
One of the big questions that will come be-
fore the people in Gulf County in the form of
a Referendum this month will be the question
as to whether or not Gulf County wants two
large modern health clinics.
Another question that may not be raised
is whether or not Gulf County NEEDS two
large modenm Health Clinics.
As you no doubt know, the County Health
Department is strictly a preventive operation.
They give shots, test water, milk, inspect eating
places and the like to keep disease from spread-
ing. They require no hospital rooms or facili-
ties. The only x-ray program they carry on is
carried out by the State Health Department.
The County Health Department is not de-
signed to compete with local doctors and hos-
At the present time the County already has
a fairly large and modern building in Wewa-
hitchka for a Health Clinic. Dr. H. B. Canning
has his offices in the building. It is a fairly
large brick structure and looks adequate. Here
in Port St. Joe we have a small structure which
is located on Sixth Street. We will admit that
they need a little more room but not very much.
Both of these buildings are rented by the
County at an expenditure of $55.00 a month.
That $55.00 is the total rent paid for both build-
$60,000.00 will build quite a building. And
when builds "quite a building" it always means
upkeep. At the present time the landlords keep
up the County Health Department buildings.
Two buildings this large would require larger
staffs to operate. Due to the nature of the
Health Department's work, we feel that a large
portion of both buildings, if constructed would
remain idle most of the time.
Along with other undesirable features of
this program, it is designed so that the Federal
Government will pay for half of the cost of
the buildings. That in itself is enough to make
people shy away from the program.
We do feel that we need a new and larger
Health Department building here in Port St.
Joe, but nothing like $60,000.00 worth. We
also feel that the one in Wewahitchka is ade-
quate. If we had as good a building down
here, we would say that both were adequate.
Two lai-ge Health Department buildings
would be nice, but we believe there other things
in the County that needed worse. And also
the County can put that potential upkeep money
to good use.
A FLORIDA NEGRO PROTESTS
From The Lakeland Ledger
A Bradenton Negro named Alonzo W. Riley
had a letter in the Washington Post a few days
ago in which he protested the effort to do away
In his long letter he asserted that the solu-
tion to the present problem would be "to give us
school buildings and furnishings equal to what
the white schools have, and then give us our
share of each school tax dollar each year based
en school attendance. With this done, we Neg-
roes would work out our segregation problems
with our friends here at home."
Manatee County, of which Bradenton is the
county seat, has 81 Negro teachers.
With non-segregated schools, the Bradenton
Negro wrote, Negroes "would have none of the
81 colored teachers in or out of schools. It
.would cause race hatred and confusion that we
could not stand. We would lose everything with
no hope of gain.
"If segregated schools go, so does every-
thing else, including segregated churches. With
non-segregated churches -there would iot be
25 per cent of the people who attend services
at the 32 colored churches in Manatee County
that would go to church at all.
"If the courts can force us into non-segregat-
ed schools, surely they can force those in au-
thority to give us school buildings equal to the
white school buildings and give us our share of
every tax dollar each year based on school at-
tendance. With this, let us work out our prob-
lems here at home without paid agitators in-
Just how many Negroes in Florida or thru-
out the South share the view expressed by the
Bradenton Negro it is impossible to say. Thus
far, most Southern Negroes have been relatively
reticent in regard to expressing their views on
desegregation. But the Bradenton Negro has
expressed a practical viewpoint based- on unde-
In the long run, education will be the only
harmonious solution to the problem in the South
Education is the leaven that will bring about
the adjustment as a natural social process-and
the South has done much to provide much bet-
ter educational facilities for Negroes during the
past 20 years, facilities costing far more than,
the amount of money Negro citizens pay into
The disproportionate amount of money
white citizens are putting into Negro schools is
bringing rich returns in the form of a higher
type of Negro citizenship.
