WAR ON LOUD
MUFFLERS, SPEED I. ,&1 9 J %
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
said this week that local, police
are beginning a crack-down on
,loud mufflers in the City of Port
St. Joe this week.
Chief Griffin said there has
long been an ordinance on the
City books prohibiting loud muf-
flers in the City. Recently many
complaints have been registered
by a greater number of the loud
mufflers being a nuisance In the
City. Griffin said that all motor-
ists should have their loud muf-
flers repaired at once to avoid
any necessity for makirig charges
by the police department.
Chief Griffin said that a recent
rash of speeding and night time
racing by teen agers on city
streets has also drawn the atten-
tion of City police and warned
that those caught speeding or
driving recklessly on city streets
will be punished. Griffin urged
parents of teen agers to check
on their driving habits to prevent
possible embarrassment to the
parents and to the teen agrees.
"This speeding isn't confined
to teen agers", said Griffin. "Sev-
eral adults have-been driving too
fast on city streets and we are
going to have to stop it".
Griffin urged all motorists to
drive especially careful now that
children are going to and from
school and are walking our
streets and sidewalks.

"Keeping correct records will as-
-sure you all "the benefits you and
your employees have earned," John
V. Carey, district manager of the
Panama City social security office,
reminded employers this week
Benefits tor 'an employer and his
employees ;at retirement, death,
or permanent and total disability,
are based on the reports the em.
player files with Internal R'venue
of his own net 'profit-And tha3 earn-
ings. of his employees, Carey added.
Accurate and complete rec.,rds are
necessary 'to make the proper re-
ports on your employees as well as
to determine the employer's own
true net profit. The 'employer is re-
sponsible for filing reports on his
employees which should contain
the full name, social security ac-
count number, and the amount paid
to -each employee.
Carey also pointed out that many
self-employed persons have not
been properly reporting their net
profit. Coverage of the self-employ-
ed is not optional-it is required
by law and is necessary in order
to get social security credit fbr his
earnings. If he failed to file the
.report on his net profit *and pay
the 'self-employment tax for prior
years, may not be too late. He
can file" reports for 1956 and later
years and pay the self-employment
social security tax to the Director
of Internal Revenue this year. So-
cial security credits cannot be giv-
en now for years prior to 1956.
The social security office for this.
area is located at 1135 Harrison
Avenue, Panama City. The tele-
phone number is POplar 3-5331.

Speeding Problem is Really
A Personal Regulation Problem
A citizen remarked to us the other day' "Somethiiig niee
to be done. about the speeding on Port St Joe streets".
We agreed with him.
But the question is what?
The obvious solution would be to charge our police d(
apartment with the duty of putting a stop to speeding. This is a
very well. We have no doubt that if you should be speeding i
the vicinity our police are patrolling you Will be picked up B3
let us be sensible about downing our police force too read]
in this matter. We must remember that our police force has bi
one car. Port St. Joe has miles of streets. How can one-car b
on every street at once.? The answer is obvious: The policeaai
in one sense of the word, the police are powerless to put a std
to all of the speeding offenses in Port St. Joe without inflicthn
outrageous fines, or some other rough-penalties for speeding an
just making examples out of a few speeders. This wouldn't I
fair ahdn'would"only breed resentment.
Port St. Joe is not unique in this problem. Nearly ever
other siniall city in 'the nation is so handicapped.
The only obvious answer to the speeding problem is'
persuade, with some means or other, the motorists'of our city- t
take it upon themselves to regulate their speed and driving habit
Now that school is' on the verge of starting and children will I
walking the streets to anid from school, it is more mandatory tha
ever that we observe safe driving habits.
It would be a mark of distinct progress for our city
the citizens would police themselves in this matter. Probab]
no other city has done so. It takes pride in your city and wi
power of your own to accomplish such a goal. We need th
accomplishment in Port St. Joe. The speed of autos going n<
where is becoming ridiculous. We MUST stop and think bi
hind the'wheel or someone will be killed. We have been lucd

Reapportionment 'Half Loaf'
Is B0fer Than Nothing
Let it be said here and now that we're not satisfied with
the job of reapportionment done by the 1959 Legislatue. But
it is better to be satisfied with a "half loaf than nothing, as some-
one once wisely said. We will be forced 'by circumstances to ac-
cept that advice.
By the same token, South Florida was not perfectly satisfied
with the reapportionment bid either. If the Legislature waited
until both sections of the state were satisfy, reapportionment
would be eons in coming. Both secti6As must give a little.
As far as Gulf County is concerned, the reapportionment
foriilk strengthens the county's position in the senate. The coun-
tys strength is diluted a bit both Houses, of course, simply because
more members have been added. '
Under the new formu;it, Gulf willf remain in the 25th
Senatorial District, but the membership. of this group will be
pared down to just two counties--Gilf and Calhoun. Former
counties making up the remainder of this district, Bay and Wash-
ington will go to other districts. That appears to be a logical
move. Gulf was formerly part of Calhoun and certainly the two
counties still have strong ties and much in common.'
But the fate of the reapportionment formula as envisioned
by the 1959 Legislature---after four years of deadlock--is- not'
yet resolved. The new formula, included in proposed constitution.
al amendmers, will be either accepted or rejected by the voters
in a special referendum in November.
While admitting the imperfections of the formula, we
nevertheless believe it deserves support here simply as the"half
loaf" that is attainable. It, at least, would be a means of cheSk-
ing the reapportionment hassle that has torn Florida for four
years. If the plan is accepted--as we hope it will' be-we can
at least turn our attention for a few short years to the progressive
development of our whole state.

Warn of increase
In Sonic Booms
An increase in the normal sonic
boom noise may occur in the
Northwest Florida area between
Pensacola and Tallahassee as the
result of an all-out testing of the
F101 Voodoo at the Tyndal Air For-
ce Base, officials stated Today.
The F101 is the latest twin-en-
gine supersonic jet aircraft in the
Air Defense Command inventory of
weapons .and this is the first time
a fighter-intercepter squadron of
FlOls has been deployed to an Air
Defense Command Weapons Center
for an evaluation exercise.,
The squadron, the 60th, arrived at
Tyndall during the weekend from
Otis AFB, Mass.
The sonic noise,- the result of a
jet aircraft exceeding the 'sound
barrier, has become familiar -to the
people of Northwest Florida where
several air bases are located which
have aircraft flying at speeds ex-
ceeding the speed of sound.
Tyndall officials, however, want-
ed to explain why a sudden increa-
se in the sound might be noticed.
It was pointed out that all sonic
booms would be at high altitudes
and would cause no damage.

her mother of Perry were guests

Dove Season To
Open October 10
It 'may appear a bit early, but
nimrods in Gulf County ate already
asking information concerning the
coming hunting season. Since the
mourning dove is one of the most
sought after game birds in this
part of the country, The Star will
begin with certain facts about that
The dove is classed as a migra-
tory game bird under jurisdiction
of the U.S. Wildlife Service which
sets the dove season 'framework,
bag limits and regulations for all
states. The states may further re-
strict, but cannot expand, the sea-
son, bag limits or regulations.
There. are usually two incoming
dove flights into Florida each year,
one in October and other in late
November and December. Some
dove are already beginning to show
up in this area. In some parts of
the state doves appear in satisfac-
tory numbers only 'during the first
flight, mainly in Gulf, Franklin and
Wakulla counties in Northwest Flor-
ida and in Palm Beach, Dade, Bro-
ward and Monroe counties in ex-
treme South Florida.
The life cycle of the dove is ra-
ther surprising to most hunters.
This bird has a -very high natural
mortality rate, with 70 to 80 per
cent dying during the first year of
life. Therefore, the objective under
good management is to harvest
such birds in a sporting manner
before they die from natural caus-
es. This means that if doves are
not taken in October, those particu-
lar birds may be lost to Florida
hunters. Usually more birds are.
killed in the first half. of .the dove
season than in 'the second phase.
Tentative dates for this hunting
season will open dove shooting on
October 10 in 54 counties-during
the. first phase of the split season
-and close on Nov. 1, a total of 23
