Comm. Strickland said for the
benefit of the record, he wanted it
known why he changed his decision
and voted against the motion. The
reason being: No. 1. He thought a
matter of this nature can best be
handled 'by arbitration between
those directly involved. 2. That he
thought it could have been settled
to the satisfaction of all concerned
by arbitration without having any-
one embarrassed in this type meet-
ing. 3. But now that the matter has
been discussed and it appearing
that all facts that should have been
brought out, was not divulged, he AIR CONDITIONEI
felt that he should not vote to al-
low additional time, but that the 321 Reid Avenue
matter should be settled tonight. PRICES GOOD
The matter was discussed, at RIE GO
length after which, the Chairman
called a special meeting for Thurs-
day night, Sept. 25, 1958, at 6 p.m. CRESTMONT

Empty School Rooms .
Seldom has a photograph with more tragic impact been
printed than the one carried by last Tuesday's morning papers
showing a lone teacher sitting at a desk in an otherwise desert-
ed classroom at Little Rock, Arkansas.
Closing of the public schools was a last desperate effort of
Little Rock state officials in the face of the Supreme Court's
most recent "integrate now" decree. In handing down this man-
date, the Supreme Court overruled a Federal District -Judge,
who had shown a little commonsense, as well as a knowledge
of the law, in allowing Little Rock additional time to work out
its vexing problems.
We agree with "The State" of Columbia, S. C., that .it is
hard to understand why Alaska, as a new member of the Un-
ion, should be guaranteed full control of her schools, while such
authority is denied the original 13, and others that have been
"Not only does Alaska get such a written-in guarantee, but
it develops that this exemption from federal interference is ap-
plied to all new states entering the Union during this century,"
the South Carolina paper observes and adds: "The only thing we
cannot understand is why in the long argument that has been
waged over the school question, someone hasn't pointed out this
In all the welter of Southern maneuvering to retain control
of its schools, and its traditional social structure, a single fact
stands out in the sea of uncertainty. There will be no integra-
tion in a closed public school, but there will also be little if any
education absorbed at Little Rock or anywhere else in the na-
tion, North or South, Where the High Court's irresponsible decision
of 1954 has provided and unending field day for those who would

U. S. Attorney General Rogers' idea of swearing in armies
of informers as Deputy U. S. Marshals is not likely to help the
situation. And, until the conduct of their own internal affairs is
returned to the states, there can be no satisfactory solution.
If Alaska is guaranteed full control of her schools, why
should not the rest of us have at least equal rights?. Why ban
'discrimination in one area of government and countenance it in
another? Perhaps a close study of this special treatment of our
new Alasskan brothers will provide a new weapon with which to
fight the Supreme Court's ruling. Bradford County Telegraph

It has been said that "Next to Excellence is
the appreciation of it" and this certainly holds
true for the 1959 Oldsmobile. It is a product
of the American automobile industry that will
win the acclaim of even the most severe critics.
This car is the very essence of excellence and
we at Floyd Chevrolet Co., are indeed very
proud to be able to present this beautiful auto-
mobile to the people of Gulf and Franklin
We would like to take this opportunity to invite
our many friends to visit our showroom on

hunters will take to the field at
12:00 noon Saturday, October 4
when the first phase of the 1958
migratory dove hunting season op-
ens statewide, except in Alligator
Point, Franklin County, according
to A. D. Aldrich, director, Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission.
Hunting will be allowed every
day from 12:00 noon until sunset
for 30 consecutive days through No-
vember 2. Daily bag limit for doves
has been set at 10, with a total
possession limit of 20.
Alligator Point, Franklin County,
which remains closed during the
first phase, will be open to dove
hunting, with the remainder of the
state, during the second period
consisting of 35 half-days from No-
vember 27 through December 31.
Dove hunters must posses valid
hunting licenses, available from all
County Judges. Shotguns must be
plugged to three-shell capacity, and
rifles are prohibited for taking mi-
gratory birds. Duck stamps are not
required for taking doves, but will
be required to take ducks and geese
when the waterfowl season opens
Aldrich said the dove season was
set in two periods to conform to
the dove's migratory patterns and
concentration points in Florida,
and to allow hunters the maximum
practical hunting opportunities.
The dove is a fast-flying bird,
capable' of covering several hun-
dred miles in a day's time. Natural
mortality of doves is high-relia-
ble evidence shows that only 20
to 30 percent of .the total dove pop-
ulation survives their first year of
life. From 70 to 80 percent of the
doves die from natural causes dur-
ing their first year.
'Because of this heavy first-year
mortality, the Commission would
like to see hunters benefit by har-
vesting the doves that would soon
die from natural causes. The high
natural mortality, as occurs in
doves, is not an unusual occurrence.
