The problems of the Gulf County
schools have been widely discussed
for the past month and parallel the
problems throughout the nation. A
shortage of teachers is in evidence
and crowded conditions are the rule
rather than the exception through-
out the County.
Reports were given from all the
white schools in Gulf County. All
reported hardships and all but one
had teacher troubles.

Wewahitchka High School. He re-

than the rest of the schools.
School Superintendent Thomas

condition in reference with other
counties in the state. He declared
that Gulf was about average but
went further to say that the who!e<
state could stand improving.
B. B. Scisson gave a short ad-

Senator George G. Tapper was
invited to address the gathering on
ways that the problem might be
solved. Tapper flatly stated that
the only way Gulf's schools would
be improved would be for the citi-
zens of Gulf County to dig into their
pockets for the necessary funds.
Tapper stated that the people

Mr. Wesley Ramsey, Editor
Port St. Joe, Florida
'In behalf of all the members of
organized labor here we should like
to take this opportunity to express
our most sincere thanks and ap-
preciation to the merchants of this
oity and to the many citizens in
this and neighboring counties for
the wonderful cooperation, attend-
ance, and participation in the re-
cent Labor Day Celebration here.
Actions such as these indeed
trend toward unification of Ameri-
ca not only as a nation, but as
states, counties, and communities
serving God under one nation, in-
. We as a group are extremely con-
cerned over the number of citizens
who were turned away due to lack
of food, but we offer the explana-
tion that such a celebration was
extremely difficult for which to es-
timate and prepare. We sincerely
hope that those -citizens turned
away for this reason will hold no
hard feelings towards labor. In this
respect we feel that after such an
experience we shall be much better
prepared to more adequately plan
and present such a celebration in
the future. Our sincere thanks to
T-E STAR for their timely editor-
ial in this regard in last week's is-
sue of that publication.
Last, but by far not least, we wish
to thank the many different union
members of all the committees for
the help they offered in making
this celebration the great success
Next year the citizens can look
forward to an even greater celebra-
tion in all respects as we sincerely,
feel that this is one terrific way in
