Nobody cbani accuse our dear "Un-
cle Sam of being a bully.
Our Uncle is far from that. In
fact, some nations may' just give
him the opposite label.
We' wonder if it ever occurred
to John Foster :and "Sam Snead"
Eisenhower, that the Germans are
telling :thblr conquerors just what
they will do.
As I understand, we are officially
still at war with Germany as long
as we occupy the nation. We are
their 'victors and it would seem
to me that itiwould.be up to the
U. S.. to do the telling about the
status of Berlin and not the lis-
Of course, that's just one p"er-
son's opinion on the matter.
We. noticed in the minutes of
the County Commission at their
last meeting that the County Board
'talked about the advisability of
doing all of the County's purchas-
ing that was possible within Gulf
A more needed resolution, we
cannot think of. Between the
County and the School Board,
over a million dollars of money
Is spent by Gulf County each
and everyy' year. Gulf county's
economy could well use that ex-
We -especially noted Commission-
er Strickland's objections on the
grounds that some materials are
not readily obtainable in Gulf
County and that they should be
bought wherever obtainable in or-
der to keep things operating.
We' agree with Commissioner
Strickland that things should be
kept running as well as possible.
'But what Mr. Strickland, as well
as a. lot of other people, forgets is
that Gulf County merchants can
order what they 4 .N.. av. In stock
just as easily, and in a lot of In-
stances, easier, than the County
can do so.
Gulf County merchants usually
have a much more efficient system
of ordering, a greater choice of
items. and prices, and gelnreally
quicker "services than the county
We think this should be kept in
We don't think any operation of
the county would be jeapordized by
waiting a few days for something
to be ordered.
And we believe that should this
policy be carried out 100% in Coun-
ty buying to keep their dollars in
Gulf County, about the second or
third time they went back after
something, they would find that
County merchants would have their
particular items in stock.
A merchant, no matter where
he is, is not going to stock an
item or items that he cannot sell.
And how Is a County merchant'
going to know what the County
operations need, unless they re-
ceive a chance to supply them?
This idea of informing all coun-
ty divisions to purchase their needs
in the county was shelved until a
future meeting, but we hope that
it will become an actuality at their
next meeting. It will, put a mighty
good taste in County merchant's
mouths around tax collecting time.
We see by the papers where
Governor Collins and some of his
men are talking about limited in-
tegration in Florida to strengthen
Florida's assignment law,
We don't know about that being
such a good idea.
In our opinion, the Supreme
Court is slowly but surely backing
down from its stern actions of last
year and the first half of this
As an example, we see where
they are not now saying that their
edict said, "schools must integrate"
The wording that the Supreme
Court is now giving to their edict
is, "No school supported by' tax
money (public funds) can deny
its services to a citizen"-Or words
to that effect. This, and the Court's
acceptance of Alabama's school
placement law, leads us to think
that they are going to soften up
the pressure in areas where years
of inrooted custom are being de
(We believe that this is a time
to sit tight and wait.

We Should Have Won In the Sixties!
You know, it's too bad we didn't lick the living daylights
out of the yankees back in the sixties. Things would have been
much better now. We would have made a reasonable, even a
generous peace, and the reconstruction of both nations would
have been orderly and peaceful. Of course, we have made the
boogers pay for all of our stuff they busted up, but we would
have made friends with them and of them, and the two nations
would have stoo dshoulder-to-shoulder against the world in a
strong alliance. And everybody knows a strong alliance is better
than a mess of a union where one part has no respect for the
rights and wishes of the other part.
We Confederates, then, would have been better off as an,
ally of the US. We would have been eligible for all sorts of aids,
grants, giveaways and not-to-be-repaid loans. Good old Uncle
Sam would have fallen all over himself to build us some dams,
roads, schools, libraries, industrial plants, and most anything else
we wanted. We could have charged big rents on air bases, rocket-
launching stations, navy yards and Ike's vacation grounds. We
could have kept Mr. Dulles brink-walking by day and night, and
called for summit meetings every week end or so. 1
We could have had whatever kind of schools we wanted,
and our laws would have been the laws we wanted and if Mr.
Warren's supreme court didn't like 'em they could lump 'em.
In other words, we would have run our business to suit our-
selves and the yankees would have paid the bills for us. That's
what they are doing all over the world or as much as they can get
It would have suited the yankees better also. We would
have kept our sensible congressmen and senators down south
where they wouldn't have interfered with the liberals'. Them
there spendthrift yankees could have scattered the taxpayers'
mony high, wide and handsome with both hands.
Come to think of it, that's what they are doing anyway.
-- Pike County, Georgia, Journal
Only one thing we would like to add to the above editorial.
If we had won in the sixties, we don't think those liberals' could
be able to scrape up enough money for loans, grants, etc., by
this time to support us in the style we have become accustomed
to, had it not been for our sensible Senators and Congressmen.
Next War Fatal to All
It's official now: World War III definitely would be fatal
to mankind. Not that we didn't have a gnawing awareness of it
before, but it's been officially proclaimed by a nationwide organi-
zation of some 2,200 scientists and engineers of all fields.
This organization, the Federation of American Scientists,
says that the United States, Russia and Great Britain now have
enough nuclear bombs in their assorted stockpiles to. wipe out
every person in the world.
This, of course, would not be from the explosive effects of
atomic bombs alone. We have already been informed that only
a paltry 80 to 100 million persons in this country would be killed
immediately by an all-out nuclear attack.
It is the radiation from these explosions that would really
clean up the place. If the aforementioned sundry stockpiles
were all set off say the scientists, they would cover the earth with
a blanket of radiation intense enough to wipe out all human
beings on land.
This nation has just celebrated its traditional Thanksgiv-
ing. The fact that we were around to celebrate it was reason
enough to observe it.

One look at this '59 Chevy tells you
here's a car with a whole new slant
on driving. You see the transforma-
tion in its low-set headlights, the
overhead curve of its windshield,
the sheen of its Magic-Mirror finish
- -a new acrylic lacquer that does
away with waxing and polishing
for up to three years.
But to discover all that's fresh
and fine you must relax in Chevro-

"Why must we have .min-
isters? They stay dressed up
all the time, read lots of books
and make life hard by their
preaching. Why should we
have preachers anyway?" So
spoke a hard-working man re-
cently in caustic tones. It is
a good question. Why should
we have ministers?
The New Testament answers
this question by stating that
God intends for us to have min-
isters. The Bible plainly says
that God "gave some, apostles; I
and some, prophets; and some,
evangelists; and some, pastors
and teachers" (Ephesians
4:11). The Bible also calls it
"a good work" (1 Timothy
3:1). In this good work the
pastor preaches in the worship
services, officiates at weddings
and funerals, administers bap-
tism and the Lord's Supper,
visits the sick, comforts the
bereaved, counsels with those
who seek his help, guides the
young, encourages the a'-ed,
and directs the varied activities
of the church. He coy-on.'ates
with every commnii' r- tl-e
workers in ever '
in the church.
The pastor is to l:s pc-opje
what a shepherd is to his sheep.
The Lord Jesus, "that great
shepherd of the sheep" (He-A
brews 13:20), says to al pas-
tors (shepherds) what he said
to Peter, "Feed my lambs,"
"Feed my sheep" (John 21:15-
16). Pastors are moral and
spiritual leaders. People ex-
pect their pastor to give them
help in understanding and liv-
ing out what the Bible teaches,
both as a pr'eaher and a
The pastor is not a priest to
act as a mediator between man
and God; only the Lord Jesus
Christ can do that. "There is
one God, and one mediator be-
tween God and men, the man
Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 2:5).
The pastor cannot forgive sins,
nor can he act as God's agent
in the forgiveness of sins, Here
again only Christ can act. "Be-
ing justified by faith, we have
peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ" (R,-nans
In dedicated, God called
preachers, Baptists have found

(-rs, and guides; men who have

the oversight thereof, not by
constraint, but willingly; not
for filthy lucre, but of a ready
mind; Neither as being lords
over God's heritage, but being

the return address as well. Take special care with the "tricky"
letters and numbers shown on the chart.
Your signature, on greeting and gift cards, should be, legible.
Include the last name when identification might otherwise be in
loubt. If it's a family card, make the children part of the-greet-
ing, and let them sign the card, too.
For far away friends and relatives, add a short note-a few
words of greeting and maybe a promise of a longer letter soon. A
New Year's card is appropriate for friends you've'forgotten -at
Christmas. And never give money gifts to the postman, milkmah
ind others without at least the personal touch of your signature.
You don't have to be an artist to decorate a card or gift package.
n pen and colored inks (try red and green for Christmas) is all
you need. A tree in outline, some stars, a few heavy dots ,, .,and
you've drawn your own Christmas spirit. Another personal touch
is a note in an envelope attached to the. outside of a gift package.
As for next year's greeting card and gift list, compile.it now.
Write each name on a separate index card, and alphabetize them
in a file box to simplify additions and changes. Or keep a booklet,
with blank pages between names for newcomers. Such a list pre-.
vents embarrassing duplication or omission at card-sending time.
And always remember, concludes the Handwriting Foundation,
that the written message is part of the Christmas piri.

What Is The Largest
913,800 Women Who Save Trading Stamnps
Are The Largest "Woman's Club"
Every day about 913,800 Flor-
ida women make it a'point to
shop. where they get trading
stamps. This large group of
smart; thrifty Florida shop-
Vers, with their common in-
terest in trading stamps, can
be thought of as a huge "wom-
an's club" with membership
throughout the state.
Of course this "club wom-
an" gets wonderful things for
her home and family through
such favorites as S&H Green
Stamps. Through her thrift
and diligence she provides
"extras" for her family. And
although she may seldom
think about it, her active sav-
ing is enormously good for
business in our state.
Last year, for example, trad-
ing stamp companies pur.
'chased $764,000,worth of prod-
ucts from Florida manufac-
turers. Making these thing?
provided jobs for 289 Florida
people. S&H Redemption
Stores, paying local rent and
taxes, employ many more.
In the light of these facts it
would seem that not only
Florida women, but every-
body in the state can ib thank-
ful that the trading stamp is a
part of our way of life.

information by THE SPEr.RY AND

Here are some of the details:
Having advertised for bids on a
bulldozer, the Board got responses
from three firms, one selling Cater-
pillar equipment, one selling Allis-
Chalmers equipment and one sell-
ing International equipment.
Without the trade-in, the quota-
tions broke down thus: Allis-Chal-
mers, $17,292; Caterpillar, $20,300;
Thd Board discussed detail's of
the equipment under consideration
with Lloyd Whitfield, County Road
Superintendent. Result of the dis-
cussion was that the Board, having
agreed to keep the old bulldozer (a
Caterpillar) also decided that (1)
because of familiarity with Cater-
pillar equipment, (2) interchange-
ability of parts, (3) and the good
operating record of the Caterpillar
bulldozer, to purchase the Cater-
pillar equipment. The Board was
in agreement that the advantages
to be derived outweighed the fact
that the Catterpillar bid was he

In the discussion that followed, all
members appeared to be in agree-
ment with th6 principle that county
business was paying most of the
taxes and therefore ought to have
a crack at its money-even though
the cost to the Board would per-
haps in some instances be higher.
Strickland observe that at
times delay in getting what was
needed immediately made it nec-
essary to purchase outside the
county. Price said he thought the
Board should spell out its purchas-
ing policies in detail and put them
in writing. Strickland suggested
that at a later meeting that matter
be considered in detail and that
the Board invite interested parties
to be on hand for a discussion.

A copy of a letter fro architect
Tom Daniel to the Lark Construc-

read to the Board by the Clerk.
From the content, it seems that
the Board has informed Lark that
leaks, that he had promised to cor-
rect, but, to date, hasn't, exist in
the Wewahitchka Health Clinic.

their cooperation on the road, dam,

Max Kilbourn, County Engineer,
that sum will use up approximately
one year's county Secondary Road

Chairman Croxton urged the
Board to defer any hasty decision
that would tie up road funds for
one fiscal year in a limited area.
He reminded the Board that in the
next session of the Legislature it
was posisble some change in the
applicable law might qualify a num-
ber of streets in the county for pav-
ing which cannot now qualify. He
used his home district, White City,
as an example, where, he said,
some road building was critically
needed but under the present law
did not now qualify. Were there a

presumption, naturally would be
that Croxton would press for an
