WILD TURKEY

IN SMASH HIT

A wild turkey and a late model
automobile crashed headon Mon-
day afternoon on Highway 98 be-
tween Port St. Joe and Panama
City. The big gobbler was killed,
but not before taking his toll.
The approximately 15-pound
bird smashed through the wind-
shield of a St. Joe Paper Com-

ver's lap. The driver, Lugie
Spann, reportedly was "most
amazed" at having his dinner-

Objectionable Advertising On Rain Shelters
For some weeks now the Gulf County Schoiol Board has
been debating whether or not to provide some rain shelters for
rural students who must ride the school bus to and from their
daily classes. It seems that several parents have asked that the
Board provide these shelters.
It seems like a fine idea, especially where students must
await their transportation a good distance from their home.
We see that these shelters were provided last week. We
also took note of the fact that the School Board probably got the
shelters for free. In fact, it was evident that a couple of con-
cerns were even too glad to furnish the shelters -- a beer con-
cern and a dog track racing outfit. Their advertising is flashily
emblazoned on the sides of these shelters.
While the School Board had only good intents in receiv-
ing these free offerings, we can only suppose that they didn't
know of the advertising on the sides thereof. We salute them
for their frugality in providing the rain shelters for nothing. But
in the same breath, we implore them to give the shelters back to
the donors and seek them from other firms. Mr. School Board
Member, if you have not as yet seen the shelters, we would urge
that you go take a look at them, and we feel that you will agree
with us.
There are enough of our students now taking the drive out
the beach and filling up on beer each night now, without trying
to advertise then into drinking more. And the situation exists
in some of the best families in town. We feel some parents
would be shocked to learn of the children that are making this
little 15 mile or so trip to "tank up" each night.
Please Mr. School Board Member -- our children are
easily persuaded, as all children have been through the ages. Let
us keep temptation out of their reach and temper the persuasion
toward such indulgences as much as we can. Give the shelters
back.


Where The Beer Flows Like Soda Pop
As for the fact of the beer purchases made by youths re-
ferred to in the editorial above, it is not just idle gossip or suppo-
sition. This thing goes on every night. It has even degraded to
the point where our young girls are now even indulging in the
bottled barley and malt. The other night, two girls from very
good families became intoxicated at this place and had a public
fight. The parents of these girls would be mortified if they knew
who -they were,
These people know they are not supposed to sell beer to
teen-agers, yet it is consumed on the premises like soda pop. We
hope that our law enforcement officers will take note of this fact
and do their duty.
And by the same token, it might behoove the parents of
the community to create the crime of being suspicious of where
their children are spending their time at night. A little step now
might prevent a tragedy in the very near future.

Teacher Salaries

(Continued From Page 1)
their children and it we are to
hae [he _t-a in trc;lier-., he. mini-
mum salary shildt bie hEig i enough
to attract well-educated, promising
young people to the teaching pro-
fession. T h e maximum salary
should be high enough to retain
highly competent and professional-
ly ambitious men and women in
classroom teaching and the local
salary schedule should be adjust-
ed periodically, with due consider-
ation for trends in earnings in oth-
er professional occupations and for
changes in the cost of living.
There seems to prevail a general
belief that teachers have become
plentiful. This, of course, is not
true. There is a much greater de-
mand for teachers in Florida, as
well as all other states, than avail-
able personnel. If we are to !supply
our class rooms with the type per-
son who can meet the needs of our
boys and girls, then we must make
teaching more attractive than com-
mon labor in salary brackets.
The Heller committee budgets at-
tempt to define, in terms of content
and cost, "commonly accepted stan-
dards of living." Latest figures are
for September, 1957, and include
the .estimates of the cost of a four-
person family budget, at two econ-
omic levels. They are as follows:
Junior professional and execu-
tives $8,885
Wage Earner
Home owner $6,204
Home renter $5,832
Beginning teacher, Gulf County,
$3,650
I believe these figures say more
than many words,
