Years ago, practically all that a prescription could
do was to alleviate the patient's pains and make him
a little more comfortable -- while nature did a
slow job of curing the ailment. But today's pre-
scription, containing wonder drugs completely un-
known years ago, cures the ailment in hours, not
weeks keeps the patient out of the hospital or
gets him out after only a few days and puts
him back on 'his feet in a hurry. That's why we say:

Natural Gas Near Certainty
For St. Joe, Says Costin
Cecil G. Costin, Jr., vice-President of the St. Joe Natural
Gas Company told quizzing members of the Port St. Joe Jaycee
Forum of the Air program Sunday afternoon that natural gas
is now a virtual certainty for Port St. Joe. Costin based his as-
sertions on the fact that a temporary line permit has been grant-
ed for serving Michigan Chemical Company. "The guarantee of
a-permanent-permit is so certain", said Costin, "that the Michigan :
line is already under-' construction, even though their permit is ...
only on a temporary basis. This line wouldn't be under construc-
tion if there was any remote possibility that the permanent per- .
mit might be denied." Costin said Port St. Joe gas supplies would
come through the same feeder line. 1

Why We Have Soft Schools
While the following editorial appeared in the Tulsa,
Oklahoma Tribune concerning the schools in Oklahoma, by
mentally changing a few words denoting location, the editor-
ial might also apply to the schools in Florida. Ed.
Do the people of Oklahoma really want better education
for their children?
You interview 100 parents in any part of Oklahoma and
all of them would say, "Sure, but how much will it cost?"
Any real effort to improve public school education in Okla-
homa runs into an astonishing amount of public indifference, mis-
understanding or hostility and not a little sabotage by professional
Item 1: The drive to consolidate weak schools, and par-
ticularly small, weak high schools, is bogging down. Roads are
now good enough so that with the exception of a few far-western
and Kiamichi mountain districts, there need be no Oklahoma
high school with fewer than 400 students. Such schools could offer
a broad variety of courses.
Instead, we still have a few high schools with total enroll-
merts of 30 or 40. The resistance to consolidation comes from
job-jealous principals, local merchants and politicians, and parents
who have only a foggy notion of what modern education can and
Item 2. Education's best friends take unwarranted abuse.
Courageous school administrators who try to deemphasize frills
and expand studies are criticized by parents who delight at march-
ing bands but don't dig physics and foreign language ...
Item 3. Teacher education, at least until recently, has
overemphasized "how to" and underemphasized "what."
The path to promotion lay through acquiring summer
school courses in dubious theory, even though many teachers
were not well grounded in their subjects.
The number of Oklahoma teachers -- yea, and principals
- who still can't speak grammatical English is shockingly high.
Item 4. While education can be substantially improved
without raising tax rates it cannot overcome tax-dodging. Many
counties qualify for secondary school aid only because their coun-
ty assessors have ridiculously under-assessed real property .
So we have many good reasons why Oklahoma schools are
not better ... But there is good reason to believe that we are on
the threshold of better days.
Last week at Stillwater the Governor's commission on high-
er education and the legislative council's education committee
met with college heads to consider improvements. A broad sur-
vey of the state's 18 colleges and universities has been proposed.
Dr. George Cross, president of OU spoke in favor of end-
ing the present system of allowing a high school diploma, no mat-
ter from how bad a high school to provide automatic admission
to any state university. It is time, he said, for tougher standards.
One ofo ur favorite Oklahomans, Dr. Charles Spencer,
president of East Central College in Ada laid it on the line with
plain talk about poor high school preparation and the need for
standard achievement tests.
And Dr. H. E. Garrison, president of Northeastern State
College at Tahlequah, spoke of the urgent necessity of employing
new, yet thoroughly proven, visual and audial teaching aids
throughout our schools.
In spote of a vast mass of public inertia and political indif-
ference a lot of Oklahomans were thoroughly scared by Sputnik
and the realization that easy school standards of the past will soon
make the United States a second-rate nation.
The time has never been so propitious for upgrading our
schools. Let's get on with it.
How It All Began
One day Adam told Eve he was going to spend the day
poking around. He didn't get back until late. "Where have you
been all this time?" Eve demanded. "Did you meet somebody?"
"You know very well there isn't anybody else here," Adam
replied. "I'm going to turn in." But as soon as he was asleep,
Eve, still suspicious, began to count his ribs.

took care of them. Monopoly,
we think, is dead as the dino-

This is the ability of a union

the temper of the times was
such that anyone who men-
tioned this fact was shouted
down as an enemy of the work-

unions, more of us every day

union leaders in their abuse of

Far from attacking unions

But, before restraining such
power, we must recognize it for
what it is. We must understand,
simply, how it grew.
It was created by public sym-

bring about legislative reform.
Labor monopoly is today a
Frankenstein's monster, with
absolute domination over jobs
and men an economic, every-
day threat to all of us, a chief
source of inflation. Do enough
of us understand this arrogant

United Fund Explained
To Kiwanis Club By Official
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
Lauren S. Loomis, District Scout
Executive ,of Pensacola spoke ot
both the Kiwanis Club and the Port
St. Joe Jaycees Tuesday, explain-
ing the workings and forming of a
United Fund organization. Loomis
spoke to the Kiwanis Tuesday at
noon and to the Jaycees' Tuesday
night 'at their regular meetings.
REASONS FOR U. F.
Loomis said that the reason for
'the .formation of a United Fund
movement in .any county was to
eliminate !the multiplicity of cam-
'paigns, conserve volunteer 'effort
and raise money for agencies and
.maintain volunteer community iser-
At present, Loomis .said that ev-
ery 'community and county in the
nation is 'bogged down with a mul-
titude .of "drives" all for worthy
purposes. These 'drives are taxing
on the volunteer -workers that. take
part in community affairs.
Since the U. F. deal's mostly with
the payroll1 deduction type of con-
tribution, Loomis said that Gulf
County could put on such a drive
with ,even less personnel than is
required for the present door-to-
door. and personal .contact type of
drive-uand one drive would serve
the purpose of 'all charities existing
