Dr, Roger Heig

Speaks to Rotary,

Kiwanis Clubs

Dr. Roger Heig of Switzerland,
who 'is presently studying the 'pro-
cesses of -the Glidden Company
plant here in Port 'St. Joe spoke
to the Rotary Club last Thursday
and the Kiwanis Club this past
Tuesday. ,
Dr. Helg is a chemical engineer
with a Swiss chemical firm. He has
studied several times in the Unit-
ed States.
Helg gave b6th clubs smine of his
impressions I'-of the cultural and
educational differences ,between
.our nation and his. Heig said that
while telling the differences his
audience must remember that Swit-
zerland is a highly industrialized
nation and has the highest living
standard of any nation in Europe,
roughly comparable to that of the
U. S.
Helg offered the opinion, that the
differences in culture of a-people
had a definite bearing on where
they lived. Many 'people in Europe
live right on the spot where civi-
hzed history began. Their close
association with this history has a
tendency to enhance their culture.
By the same token many towns in
the U. S. have a historic, an educa-
tional or a musical background
and the occupants of these cities
are well versed in their particular
culture.
As far as literary culture goes,
Heig said thaj libraries in cities
large and small in the U. S. are
superior to European libraries.
He listed the Americans main
fault in spreading their own cul-
ture in -the fact that Americans
abroad tend to gather together in
a segregated community and don't
put forth too much effort to learn
the language of the country they
are in. On the other hand, most
Europeans can ,speak several lan-
guages. It is necessary because of
-the close proximity of different
languages. Because of their use of
differspn l guag'es, Europeans are
quick to pick up a new language
and thereby move into. the society
of a new country more readily.
EDUCATION
Helg said that the main differ-
ence in American and Swiss edu-
cation was in -discipline. "There is
no 'trouble with unruly students in
Switzerland, neither on the part of
the teachers or the parents." Helg
said an unruly student knows he
will receive stern punishment both
from teachers and parents.
Helg "stated 'that another differ-
ence in schooling is that the U. S.
student 'has a choice of subjects
while all Swiss students (as other
European students) follow one cur-
riculum.
Helg disagreed with our univer-
sity system. He reported 'that the
U. S. 'universities turned out stu-
dents better equipped for team
work 'than anywhere else in the
world. "But there must be some-
thing wrong since the better part
of U. S. titans of industry are self-
made men".
Heig said that every student in
Switzerland 'could receive a college
education without money worries
sincethe government picks up most.
of the .cost. He said that the cost
of a Swiss university education
was less than one tenth as expen-
sive as that in the U. S.
ABOUT, SWITZERLAND
In giving a few notes about his
country, Helg reported that Swit-
zerland was about the .size of Flor-
ida excluding West Florida. The
nation 'has a-bout five million in-
habitants.
Switzerland is a nation of in-
dustry. It must import all of its
raw materials. Therefore it must
produce high quality goods, from
the imported products to keep their
economy strong. He said the coun-
try had a strong employment sit-
uation and had to import about 300,-
000 Italians to do the work they
had to do.
The Swiss government is very
much like that of the U. S. The
country is not like the U. S. in that
a person's bank balance is secret.
This is what attracts so much for-

eign money to the country.
Helg stated that every Swiss was
a trained soldier. Military training

The dark side of the picture shows that 85,000 men, women,

is possible to save half of all those who develop cancer through
early diagnosis and proper treatment. '

High Costs of Federal Statistics
The Federal Government apparently never gets enough
statistics. With 11,171 Federal employees engaged in collecting
and compiling statistics, officials thought it necessary during the
past five'years-o pay $10,762,956 more for private statistic collect-
ors. A house subcommittee has been studying the statistics on
statistics. Here are some of the things they found:
Businesses and citizens generally have to fill out about
5,000 different forms for the government, thus providing the gov-
ernment .with sources of information to compile tables of -how
many railroad cross ties are used each year to how many beer cans
are made each month. And it costs about 79 million a year to
satisfy this statistical craving.
Some of the things that government agencies seem to have
a craving to know about is the beverage consumption of children
and apparently the study found out that most children drink milk
- at a cost of $26,200. Another statistical study dealt with the
effects of coupons and special offers on the sales of margarine,
shortening, butter and cooking oils at the retail level. For $2,800
they found that special deals did influence the total sales of the
products, but did not result in switching of brands of margarine,
butter, cooking oils, etc. This was indeed a valuable piece of in-
formation but could have been learned by simply questioning the
wives of the statistic-hungry statisticians.
So far the subcommittee hasn't pointed out any specific
statistics that the government could do without; it has simply
taken the position that it doesn't see why so many statistics are
necessary.
This is just another one of the things that could be cut down
if the administration was genuinely and sincerely interested in
cutting operating expenses. -Dublin (Ga.) Courier-Herald

tOulf County, Florida
Honorable Gentlemen:
The writer is the owner together
* with his wife of Lots 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
* and 8 in Block -2 of Yon Subdivision
* of Beacon Hill in .Gulf County, Flor-
, ida. Two houses are located on
tl these lots, one is the permanent
residence of the writer and his
wife, and the other is rental pro-
perty. This property is bounded on
-the south by Highway 98 and on
the west by DeSoto Avenue.
S-Mr. Walter Owens proposed to
erect a commercial fishing -pier et-
tending from his property consist-
!ng of a 70 goot wide -extension of
DeSoto'Avenue, south of Highway
:s, into the Gulf tor a reported 350
feet. Mr. Owens has asked your
Board for permission .to proceed
with this project
The writer an dhis wife respect-
fully request your Board to deny
permission to Mr. Owens and his
associates, to erect said pier on the
f:..llowiug grounds:
1. The erection of a commercial
pier will, in .the writer's opinion,
materially reduce the value of his
property both as residence proper-
ty and as resaleable assets.
2. The lot from which it is pro-
pose dto extend the pier does not
have sufficient area for adequate
parking facilities off 'the public'
highway; nor is there parking area
adjacent .to the lot.
3. Practices followed by owners
uof commercial fishlag piers such
as "chumming" .to attract fish
could make the adjacent beach un-
tenable for bathing and other.speci-
fled purposes, rights granted in
perpetuity by an easement to .the
property owners In the Yon Subdi-
vision, said easement is recorded
In Book'22 Deeds page 108.
4. Opening of such a pier to the
general public could conceivably
lead to a ,public hazard and nui-:-
sance by creating a possible area
of racial contention and conflict.
5. Granting Mr. Owens' petition
for said pier will establish a prece-
dent for future erection of other
possibly more objectionable struc-
'tures or enterprises, .. -
The denial .by your Board of Mr.
Owels' petition at this time would
also save the .;writer, other object-
ing property wners,`1 as well as Mr.
Owens, additional expense and time
in pursuing the matter before the
Development Commission in Talla-
Shassee.
Respectfully submitted,
H, -J.-.Wrouiillette

Mr. Broullietti' request will be

A LOW-PR ICE CAR



GET THE BETTER ONE!

A new Mercury Monterey, with de luxe appointments, is now
$31 to $66 less** than the best-selling
Fords, Chevrolets, and Plymouths .1
(the V-8 Galaxies, Impalas, and Furys).


AND MERCURY OFFERS FAR MORE. Here are just
some of the advantages Mercury offers you
over the leading low-price name car: More
distinctive styling (exclusive body shell)
* Steadier riding (7" longer wheelbase) Safer
on curves (greater weight for more stability)
* Larger tires (8.00 x 14-cost extra on low-
price name cars) Exclusive Road-Tuned
ride Safer brakes (more brake lining)


DAA
Quieter ride (23% more insulation) More,
foot room (692 cu. in. more for center-seat
passengers) Fewer bumps (special 3-phase.
shock absorbers) Greater "see-ability" when
it rains or snows (overlapping 3-speed electric
wipers clear even the center) *.Better visi-
bility all around (bigger windshield and win-

The 1960 Census of Population
,and Housing, the Nation's 18th de-
cennial nose count, gets underway
on Friday, morning, April 1, with
160,000 census 'takers starting their
rounds which will take them to
every dwelling unit in the United
States. In covering the 3/ million
square miles of land area of the
50 States, the census takers will
travel an -estimated combined dis-
tance of more than 1,000 times
'around the world, or approximately
28 million miles.
District Supervisor W. R. Palmer
pointed out that residents of this
area can speed up the big count
by having their Advance Report
Forms filled out and ready for the
census 'takers. This action will save
time for both 'the householder and
the census taker, the census offi-
cial said.
The Advance Report Form was
distributed to local households
prior to the start of the house-to-
house canvass. It contains the sev-
en population and six housing ques-
tions which .are asked of all per-
sons. The Advance Report Form
gives the family a chance to as-
semble information about 'each
member in advance of the census
taker's visit. Its use is expected to
speed up the field canvass and pro-
vide more accurate statistics. At I
