ited to 5 minutes. Silas R' "Mick-
ey" Stone spoke for the better
part of 30 minutes. Ben Williams
followed (with a light to guide
him because it was darkening)
for the better- portion of 20 min-
utes. Cecil G. Costin, Jr., then
took the platform (with a lamp-
raising ceremony because it was
then very dark) for the better
portion of 20 minutes.
But it was all fairly interesting
-as long talks go- and the
crowd reflected this interest by
doing very little shrinking from it
original 4:00 o'clock bulk, in spite
of the late hour and the growling,
After reviewing his qualifica-
tions, Stone consumed the re-
mainder of the time he spoke re-
viewing Costin's legislative re-
cord over the past two years.
His contention was that, aside
from the local bills Costin had
gotten passed (some 12 or 13 bills)
every bill which Costin had intro-
duced had, for one reason or an-
other, not been passed, exceptirg
one -a labor bill. And this, said
Stone, was not Costin's bill be-
cause it was introduced two days
earlier in the Senate by Senator
In short, Stone contended, Cos-
tin had no record whatever when
it came to state legislation.
Candidate Ben Williams, during
his time on the piltfromn. hit out
again at the ',-. i' '., -n-the
schools issue. Re-ferring to an ad-
vertisement which he had run in
the BREEZE, in which he accused
Rep. Costin of placing Negro
president Gore (of Florida A&M)
in the dignitary category, Williams
made the observation that "Gore
didn't come down but sent two
niggers for one big nigger."
Williams stand is that there are
no dignitaries in the Negro race.
His allegation is that Costin has
placed Dr. Gore in that category.
A new item brought into his
campaign talk revolves around the
tragic death of the two Melvin
boys in a Sunday automobile ac-
cident about a month ago. Will-
iams made the statement that
Costin collected s fee for
drawing up the release papers in
the settlement of an insurance
claim between the Presidential In-
surance Company and the two
Representative Costin, the last
speaker, defended his record.
He pointed out that no addi-
tional taxes had been levied since
he took office, rather that the
county was getting benefit from
additional taxes levied against the
dog track operators.
Charged earlier by one of his
opponents for sponsoring a bill
because of personal interests, Cos-
tin pointed out that he sponsored
the bill at the request of the
county 'commissioners. Briefly, the
county had money in the banh
gathering dust and wanted to get
a bill passed which would allow
them to put it somewhere where
it would return seme interest. The
Representative charged that Stone
should have advised the Board as
to the soundness or constitution-
ality of the bill, since he (Stone)
in an attorney for the Board.
In a reply to Williams' Melvin
statement, Costin said that draw-
ing up releases referred to was a
routine matter in settling insur-
ance claims, that any lawyer can
do it, that he was convenient at
the time a release was required
so the Adjuster called on him.
He told the crowd, further, that
through his efforts the unfortu-
nate widows received a larger set-
lement than otherwise would have
been the case.

THE DICTATORIAL WAY
Sumter Lowry, the one-tracked candidate
-z Governor, finally has given us his specific
.a for keeping segregation in Florida schools
-.a colleges and the people had better look
it carefully and let all the implications soak
He says he would simply withhold his
a-itme from State checks to support mixed schools
.-d colleges. The Florida Supreme Court has
nued no State check is good without the Gov-
..nor's signature, and the Governor can't be
A.inced to sign his name even for a justified ex-
So the Governor of Florida holds a dicta-
tI,rial hand over expenditures of State money.
.eretofore, it has been used only rarely. The
last time was when Fuller Warren refused to
sign the paycheck for a Game and Fresh Water
. ish Commission employee he didn't like but
"couldn't fire because the commission is an in-
Lowry says "I wil hold back money from
the trouble spots and let the rest of the schools
,o ahead with their work."
That, to the all-or-nothing segregationist,
imay sound good.
Just what does it mean?
State money does not go to the counties
for public education school by school, teacher
-,y teacher, building by building. It goes in a
lump sum for them to spend -within the discre-
tion of their school boards.
Now suppose one Negro in Dade county
gets a federal court order allowing him to at-
tend a white school. It's possible there are
some schools in Dade county where this would
not meet violent objection from the white par-
ents (although we don't know of any in our
part of Florida thank God).
Would Lowry cut off all the State money
from *tade county? Would he automatically
close all its schools lop off the teachers' salaries,
stop state funds for payment of installments on
their school construction debts?
Suppose a federal court order should say
one Negro must be admitted to the small con-
Iferences and a few classes that go with obtain-
ing a master's degree from a graduate school of

COST!N'S DEPARTMENT STORE
Port St. Joe, Florida
P'lo ida State Urnvershity or the Univermity of
Florida. Would Lowry stop all payments to the
University, cut off the salaries of the staff and
faculty, close its doors and send all the rest of
the students home?
Do the people of Florida want that? Do
they want it done solely on the whim or judg-
ment of one man without action by the Legis-
lature, the Board of Control, the Cabinet Board
of Education, the county school boards?
That is the way to dictatorship.
If Lowry would weild his power this way
with the schools, would he use it also when it
served his purpose in other matters?
Would he use it to knock down the new
state employes' merit system by refusing to
sign checks for employes he wanted to dis-
charge? He's never told us how he feels about
the merit system.
Would he use it to stop old age assistance
payments here HE thought shouldn't be made,
regardless of what welfare department case
workers, recommended? He's never told us how
he feels about the welfare program.
Would he use it against other constitutional
officers, like the Cabinet members, the Game
and Fish Commission, the Parole Commission,
to force his will upon them?
This is a method, and a man, the people
should find out a whole lot more about before
they go to the polls.
DESPERATION TACTICS SURE SIGN
FIRST PRIMARY VICTORY POSSIBLE
It may be significant to note that the first
primary victory predictions for Gov. LeRoy
Collins are not coming from his camp. It is un-
likely, even if he felt sure of "having the elec-
tion i nthe bag," that he would make any pre-
diction that would encourage over-confidence
among his supporters.
No Florida governor has ever won that of-
fice in a first primary. Dan McCarty came
closest in 1952, when he came within about
16,000 votes of making a runoff with Biailey
Nevertheless, many close observers of the
Florida political scene are predicting a first pri-
mary victory for Collins. That belief was re-
ported Sunday by a Washington columnist, who
said his report was based on information Flor-
ida Congressmen were getting from back home.
The possibility of a first primary win was
also reported Sunday by three veteran Tallahas-
see political columnists, as ,well as many other
close- observers of the Florida political scene.
Despite the reputation of the columnists
for accuracy-in the past, we have been inclined
to discount the predictions. We did, that is,
until some of the other candidates began show
ing signs of desperation.
That is being evidenced by wild and reck-
less charges, the use of faked pictures and simi-
lar stop-gap desperation tactics. When a can-
didate resorts to such strategy, it is a sure sign
that he sees the "handwriting on' the wall."
In this case, it could mean that the veteran ob-
servers are right again. The May 8 primary
John Blount, who underwent sur-
gery at Oschner's Clinic in New
Orleans, is expected to return to
his home this week end. He will

Compare Ford model for model with
any other truck line and you'll find
that, based on factory-suggested list
prices, Ford has more models priced
But low initial cost is only one of
t he reasons why Fords cost less. Take
resale value-it stays high, thanks to
the demand for used Ford Trucks.
Take operating costs-no other
trucks give you the dependability of
Ford's rugged chassis design with the
gas and oil economy of a modern
Short Stroke engine. Only Ford gives
you a Short Stroke engine, V-8 or Six,
in every truck-and at no extra cost.
Ford Trucks cost less to maintain
because they last longer. There ari
plen ty of reasons why. Ford Pickups,
for example, have the highest com-
bined front and rear axle capacity in
the half-ton field. Ford Heavy Duty
engines have sodium-cooled valves

In Case of Death
If a worker in your family dies,
ask if survivors benefits are pay-
able. John V. Carey, district man-
ager of the Panama City social se-
curity district office states that
each year here are some benefits
that are no claimed by the survi-
vors of insured workers. This is
particularly true when the de-
ceased worker is a female.
The Social Security Act provides
that a lump-sum death payment
can be made i eve'y case if the
v.orker was insured at tlif time of
his death. An application for this
payment must be filed within two
years after the wage earner's
In addition -to the lump-sum
death payment, monthly benefits
may be payable to the deceased
wage earner's children under 18
yeass of age; and to his widow,
regardless of her age, if she has
minor children of the wage earner
in her care. When the last child
reaches age 18, if the widow is still
under @5 years of age, her benefit
it stopped-to be resumed when
she becomes 66, provided she has
not remarried. Under some condi-
tions, monthly payments are pos-

To Whom It May Concern:-
We wish to make public that we resent any state-
ments made by one of Mr. Costin's opponents in the
Representative race about the settlement we received
in the matter of the recent deaths in our families. We
settled this case with the Insurance Adjuster, and the
Insurance Adjuster said it didn't matter which lawyer
drew up the settlement papers. It didn't matter to us,
so the Adjuster got Mr. Costin to draw the settle-
ment papers. We knew that Mr. Costin was preparing
the papers for the insurance company, and he was
very kind to us and told us that we didn't have to
sign any papers until our checks for the settlement
We hope that any person or persons who have
been making false statements in this case will leave
us alone, and will not say anything further against
Mr. Costin because he certainly treated us nice.
Sworn to and subscribed before me on this 1st
day of May, 1956.

Former C of C Prexy and Dedication
Committee Chairman Clarifies Letter
As President of the Chamber of Commerce of Port St.
Joe at the time of the Dedication Ceremonies of the St. Joe
Museum, I would like to clarify a matter which has caused
considerable discussion in the Representative Race. The
Chamber of Commerce was sponsoring the Dedication with
the City of Port St. Joe bearing the cost.
A large number of citizens of Port St. Joe met at the City
Hall with the Mayor of Port St. Joe and members of the
Dedication Committee and requested Representative Costin
to write Dr. Gore, President of Florida A & M University
requesting the Florida A & M Band to participate in the par-
ade and play for the dance for the evening, and also to invite
Dr. Gore to attend the ceremonies. A colored committee
was designated to meet Dr. Gore and a fish fry was planned
for the colored people in their quarters. The only reason
the Florida A & M Band was not used in the parade and for
the dance was because the City had limited funds to pay
for the transportation and cost for the services of this Irand,
and it was necessary to engage a band which cost much less.
Dr. Gore did not attend these ceremonies. Representa-
tive Costin was not the master of ceremonies at this Dedica-
tion program, and the only guests which he introduced were
members of the State Legislature.
EARL D. ATCHISON
Past President Chamber of Commerce
Port St. Joe, Florida.
The Committee for the dedication ceremonies held' in
Port St. Joe last fall is very much concerned over the fact
that one of the candidates for representative from Gulf County
is trying to make an issue of the invitation extended to the
Florida A & M Band and to the President of Florida A & M
College to take part in this dedication.
This Committee wishes to state that Representative Cecil
Costin, Jr., and Ben C. Williams attended these discussions
along with many other citizens. It was agreed to invite Dr.
Gore, President of A & M College and the Florida A & M
Band to participate in these ceremonies.
A Committee headed by Damon Peters and Emile Twine
worked with the Dedication Committee in an attempt to
secure Dr. Gore and the Band to attend and participate. Due
to lack of funds in the budget, this Committee was unable to
secure their participation.
