But consider the fact that young 1960 is only three months
old and already there have been three major drives for financing
--all for excellent causes. But, no matter how good the 'cause,
people in Port St. Joe are literally being worked to death on these
projects. If our little city keeps up the pace, we will have: to
start a fund to aid those suffering from nervous breakdowns from
running fund-raising drives.
Of course the only answer to this mounting hard work on
the part of our'good citizens is a United Fund set-up for Port
St. Joe possibly even for Gulf County.
A United Fund drive would entail a little more work than
one of the present "major drives" now does. It would require
raising what now seems a large amount of money. But with
the United Fund, Port St. Joe could have one drive for an amount
large enough to care for all the charitable causes now solicited
for one by one. One shot would do it all. When time for these
individual drives came around they would have an amount desig-
nated for them out of the United Fund. The money would then'
be distributed to the recognized charity drive and that would be
While we have been primarily concerned with the solici-
tor thus far, we must not forget the "relief" that would be
offered the contributor from such a plan. Just think of the bliss
of not being bothered with contributing to a dozen or so drives
each and every year. So you have to shell out a tidy sum once
a year. Think of the comfort of never having to dole out hard-
earned cash every month or so for some cause or other.
The plan has only merit. Ease of solicitation for every
worthy cause and the relief of collectors always dogging your
footsteps. Our persistent making of quotas shows that we do
not mind giving -- so let's make our giving even more painless
by adding the luxury of the United Fund.
Library Would Be Fine. But
Present Facilities Not Used Now
It seems that every person, organization or organ of af-
fluence or influence in Gulf County is being beleaguered at the
present time by proponents of a County or co-operative library
for Gulf County -- some say mobile some say stationery -- but
all say "lots of money" for this facility.
Begging the pardon of those trying for this facility, The
Star will have to work against them. And we have a very good
Although not one out of a hundred people in Port St. Joe
seem to know it -- or even care -- there is already a well-
stocked public library in the City Hall. There is a good selection
of reference books on hand and many good novels, biographies
and autobiographies. Enough literature is on hand to satisfy
the knowledge-thirsting mind of many a person.
Now comes the "why" we are against the proposed library
program. Out of all these hundreds of books available at the
City Hall, perhaps a full dozen is checked out a week -- some
weeks, that is. Other weeks, not so much business is enjoyed
by this public service.
This library was started, if my memory serves me correct-
ly, by the Junior Woman's Club of Port St. Joe and ultimately
turned over to the City. The City did keep a librarian on duty,
but it became apparent that a librarian, full time, couldn't earn
a day's salary in a full week in the local library. This, of course,
is the reason why a full-time librarian is not at present employed
by the City of Port St. Joe -- and rightly so.
If these people (and we admire their aims since we like
to read very much) who are trying to activate this library for
Port St. Joe would promote the present existing library and make'
the existing facilities totally inadequate, they would find a staunch
supporter in The Star for the creation of a fine new library --
one that would serve the needs that many people wish existed
in Port St. Joe.
All this comes with the -process
of growing old. Another year of

IN LITTLE MORE THAN five weeks
Florida voters must go to the polls to choose
a Governor but the campaign winds still are
barely strong enough to rustle a palm frond.
Political observers agree that this has been
the quietest gubernatorial race in recent years.
There are two reasons for the calm, we be-
lieve. One is that the record of the Collins ad-
ministration, in progress and integrity, leaves
candidates little to run against -- and attack
always stirs the most attention in politics. The
other reason is that in the last three elections
Florida voters have rejected candidates who
hitched their campaign wagons to the unbridled
horses of demagoguery. This. lesson is not lost
on present hopefuls.
Ten men are on the Democratic ballot for
Governor. Six of these may be considered ma-
jor candidates. Of the six, perhaps three would
make acceptable Governors.
But one, in our judgment, would do an out-
That man is Doyle E. Carlton, Jr.
CARLTON, 37, is a native of Tampa, des-
cendant of a pioneer Florida family, son of a
former Governor. But it is not his birthplace
or family background that recommends him for
high office -, it is his record of public service
and governmental philosophy established during
his nearly eight years as a State Senator.
After service in the Air Force during
World War II, Carlton moved to Wauchula and
engaged in cattle ranching and citrus growing.
He was elected in 1952 and reelected in 1958
(without opposition) as Senator representing
the district of Hardee. Highlands, DeSoto and
This is a largely rural district, lightly popu-
lated. A Senator representing such a district
might be expected to show little concern for -the
needs of the congested urban areas; by tradi-
tion, he most probably would be found in the
ranks of the Pork Chop Gang, which runs the
Senate for the benefit of the rural counties and
the Senators thereof.
But Carlton does not fit the Pork
Chop pattern. He not only has shown keen
knowledge of the problems of the populous
counties, but has consistently led the fight
to provide legislative help.
--He campaigned for a system of reappor-
tionment which would give the larger counties a
fairer share of representation in the Legislature.
--He helped obtain more state aid for
school construction and teacher pay in the fast-
--He supported the principle of spending
state road money where it is most needed, ra-
ther than where it may be politically expedient.
-He opposed legislative price-fixing--
notably that on milk--which would cost con-
sumers in the cities millions of dollars.
--He backed the plan to bring the state
university system closer to the centers of popu-
lation, and thereby helped establish the Univer-
sity of South Florida at Tampa.
These are some of the things which indicate
his support of urban needs. At the same time,
he did not neglect rural problems. He worked
actively to obtain such projects as screwworm
eradication in the cattle industry, an improve-
ment of citrus standards, the establishment of a
Department of Water Resources.
In short, Doyle Carlton recognized that
a legislator's duty is not merely to his local
constituents but to the people of the state,
whether they live on farms, in crossroads
towns or in urban ant-hills.
Watching Carlton's performance, the Legis-
lature's severest critics the newspapermen
-- voted him the "most valuable Senator" in
PERHAPS the finest demonstration of his
sense of responsibility to all Florida came dur-
ing the school segregation crisis, when the ex-
tremists howled for such radical measures as
"interposition" and a shut-down of the school
Some legislators embraced these destructive
measures because they didn't know any better.
Others knew better but lacked the backbone
to stand against the clamor of the extremists.
But Carlton had both the sense and
the courage to fight every proposal which
would have wrecked the public school sys-
tem. While favoring segregated schools, he
argued that the schools must come first,
segregation second; the Pupil Assignment
Law, he contended, would minimize the
Events have proved him, right. Florida's
splendid school system has remained intact and
there is less integration in this state today than
there is in Arkansas, which vainly tried both
"interposition" and school closure.
NO SHARP differences of philosophy be-
tween the major candidates have developed dur-
ing this campaign. By their statements, all favor.
fair reapportionment of the Legislature, better
public schools, more roads, economical govern-
Carlton, however, has been most specific in'
his treatment of the major issues.
On reapportionment, he recognizes-that un-
der the present Constitution it is impossible tod
give the larger counties any additional represen-
tation. His solution is a constitutional amend-'
ment adding 10 seats -in the House; six in -the
Senate to give the populous areas fairer repre-
sentation. This is a sound plan.
On roadbuilding, he knows that Florida
growth is running far ahead of available high-
way funds. He therefore proposes to raise $250,-
000,000 for building and improving main high-
ways by borrowing against future income from
the present gasoline tax. No new tax would be
required; and Florida would be able to speed
up completion of the modern highway system it
so badly needs.
These are not fine words; these are specific
solutions for two of the state's most pressing
WHETHER FLORIDA continues the high
rate of progress attained during the Collins ad-
ministration will depend largely on the kind of
man who takes office as Governor next January.
The next Governor should be a man with an
intimate knowledge of the workings of state
government and of the problems of all areas.
He should be a man whose record shows he will
not favor East Coast over West Coast, North
Florida or South Florida or big county over lit-
tle county. He should be a man whose only
allegiance is to the people of the whole state;
whose conscience will not permit him to con-
done injustice to a single citizen, however lowly;
and who has the courage to heed his conscience.
Doyle E. Carlton, Jr., in our judgment, will
make such a Governor.

of the total personal income earni-
ed in 'the nation; in 1959 the fig-
ure moved up to 2.41 per cent. Al-
though *the per cent is slight, it
represents many millions of dol-
lars and indicates the expansion of
the consumer tharket within Flo,-
ida during the past year.
"Cash income received by farm-
ers from sale of livestock and live-
stock products stood at 1.01 per
cent in 1958 and 1.08 per cent last
year. Income from crops made up
3.46 per cent of the national total
in 1958 and 4.05 per cent last year.
This latter figure is Florida's lar-
gest proportion of any significant
national figure and reflects the
importance of the state's vegetable
and citrus crops."

from official studies 'or estimates,
