COST: 1 ICE CREAM SODA A DAY
If your doctor prescribed an ice cream soda a day
for 10 days to get you out of a sick bed you'd take
your "medicine" gladly with little thought to
its cost. When figured on the basis of the quantity
of medicine the doctor asks you to take every 24
hours, today's prescription rarely costs you more
than a daily ice cream soda. But it does something
no ice cream soda can do. It cures disease.

Making A Bad Matter Worse
Dsecribed by Republican Senator Barry Goldwater as one
more item- in the Eisenhower "dime store New Deal", and by
Democratic Burr P. Harrison as a "Townsend Plan-Rube Gold-
berg", HEW Secretary Flemming's substitute for the Forand
medical-care-for-the-aged Bill faces rough going on both sides
of the: Congressional aisles.
The conservative Chairman of the Republican Senatorial
Campaign Committee denounced the administration plan as "so-
cialized medicine in spite of its camouflage and asked: "What
is voluntary about a plan which will entail the participation of
every taxpayer whether he wants to or not? What is free about a
plan which has the Federal Government intervening in any way
at all? Where in the Constitution is the Federal Government
given the right to become a Federal doctor?"
This proposal, he charged, is but another act in the strange
drama of a soun-dollar, balanced-budget, less-Federal-control ad-
ministration which repeatedly presses for measures destructive of
these aims. "We could well call these actions the dime store
The Senator cited Federal aid to schools, depressed areas
and the $1 minimum wage as example. For 830 years, he said,
the Republican Party has said the welfare state and centralized
government are wrong, but argued at the same time that "a little
bit is all right."
Representative Harrison called Dr. Flemming's brain-child
more socialistic, more unsound and ultimately more expensive
than the Forand bill".
Perhaps, like the Kilkenny cats, each measure will destroy

Boy and Dog Replaced
In a recent survey made by Perdue University the old adage
of "a boy and his dog" was brought up to date by "a boy and
his car", and those whose teen-agers have felt that a car is a
necessary requirement toward better living can fully understand
This nation-wide poll made by Perdue showed that one
out of three High School sophomore, junior and senior boys owned
his own car, which would give credence to the fact that cars
have an edge on the old adage. It is said that there is some
question about the above figure, but there surely can be no doubt
about the ever-increasing numbers of teen-agers taking to the
highways in cars, and of the threat to traffic safety many of
The brighter side of the picture is represented by the driver-
education courses offered by many high schools in the state. Pro-
gressive insurance companies are giving a welcome discount, we
learn, to graduates of accredited training programs.
The tempo of living, as far as teen-agers are concerned, has
been modernized to an amazing degree, with automobiles help-
ing along with the "get there in a hurry" idea.
It is our belief that the driver-education programs in our
schools is not only good, but it gives a necessary foundation as
young people reach the age when driving an automobile is sanc-
tioned by law. Exchange

the -materials that the Elementary
children need to conduct scientific
experiments on their level. The
'high school has !been able to pur-
chase microscopes, model eyes,

The program has also provided
a centralized testing program for
a seven-county group with testing
machines in Marianna for prepar-
ing and grading achievement tests.
Scisson said that the cost of con-
ducting these tests from a national
source has limited local schools to
spot tests for IQ's, etc. The new
program allows for such tests to
'be performed at relatively low cost
and ease on all 'students in the
school on a peirodic basis.
Scisson said that 'these tests
were invaluable in ascertaining a
student's need's, scholastically, up-
on 'entering high school for gradua-
tion purpose, and to prepare 'him
for college. Scisson pointed out
that schooling was becoming so
complicated that students needed
something of this sort to help him
meet his specific needs. The tests
also keep a constant check on the
student to evaluate his progress in

This is a reprint of a letter mailed this week to all employees of the Michigan Chemical Corporation
who are employees of the Port St. Joe plant.
MICHIGAN CHEMICAL CORPORATION
May 6, 1960
To: Michigan Chemical Corporation
Employees on strike and their families.
As you know your Union called a strike against your Company on May 5, 1960 at 8:00 A.M.
The Company is very concerned because this action also affects the families of its striking employees.
With the calling of the strike by the Union, the Group Insurance program covering non-working,
striking employees automatically terminates on May.15, 1960 at 12:00 P.M. However, being concerned
with the immediate welfare of the families of Michigan Chemical employees, the Company will keep this
Group Life, Accident, Hospitalization and Weekly Sick Income Insurance in effect by paying both the
employees' and Company's premium due May 15th, even though the Company has no obligation to do
so. This means that you will have insurance coverage through May 22nd, and at no cost to you.
For the week of May 23 to May 30, the Company will continue its insurance premium, even
though there is no contract or agreement in force; but employees must pay their share of the premium
at the Personnel Office to keep it effective.
After May 22 non-payment by' employees of their portion of the premium will, of course, cancel
their insurance. A waiting period and, possibly, a physical examination may be required on lapsed in-
surance before reinstatement can be made. These are conditions over which the Company has no control.
Employees will be informed at the time of making the May 23rd payment whether or not the
Company will continue to contribute to non-working employees' insurance.
We hope that this policy wil lease the minds of everyone involved because we realize the import-
ance of a good insurance program during this trying period.

Sunday, May 8
In sharp contrast to his mild-
mannered first primary campaign
that had his supporters gnawing
their fingernails, Doyle E. Carlton,
Jr., came out swining Saturday for
the final round starter of the gov-
He ohagred his opponent, Farris
Bryant of Ocala, with making the
racial question the top issue to
beeloud and "'bury the real issue
of Florida's progress."
He charged Bryant with "ties
and alliances with the special
Interests of the state."
He charged him with "half
truths" and deletions in the Bryant
'campaign literature reporting his
(Carlton's) reaction on the recent
speech of Gov. LeRoy Collins on
the lunch counter "sit-downs."
Former House Speaker Ted
David,of Hollywood, who immed-
lately threw his support to Carl-
ton, after he was knocked out of
the race himself, sat at the
speaker's table at the breakfast.
So did Judge Frank Smathers, fa-
ther of Florida's junior U. S.
senator and a long-time friend of
the Carlton family.
"I am the only man left in this
race who is not hog tied to spec-
ial interests," Carlton said, "and
I hope to convince the voters of

'has been brought into this cam-
