was approved last week `by the
directors of both companies.
Plans for the merger were an-
nounced jointly 'by Dwight P.
Joyce, Glidden chairman and 'pres-
ident, and Richard Turk, board
chairman of Pemco.
The transaction, which is subject
to approval by shareholders of both
companies, involves an indicated
consideration of around $10 mil-
lion. Shareholders will vote on the
proposal at special meetings to be
held 'at .an early date.
Under the 'terms of the proposed
agreement, Glidden will exchange
200,000 shares of a new 4 1-4 per
cent convertible preferred stock
for the 100,000 'outstanding shares
of Pemco common, with the new
Glidden issue convertible at any
time into 'a total of 225,000 shares
of Glidden common stock at an
approximate conversion price of
$45 a share.
The announcement stated that if
the merger is approved, Mr. Rich-
ard Turk will ibe elected a director
of Glidden 'and a vice president of
the company. Glidden intends to
operate Pemco as a separate unit
of the company's Chemicals Group.'

Hoover's Latest Report
The annual report of J. Edgar Hoover, sent to the coun-
try's editors every year, shows that crime in the United
States is continuing to increase at a disturbing rate.
In 1960, for example, a serious crime was committed
every fifteen seconds in the United States! A murder, for-
cible rape or assault to kill was committed every three min-
This has become a national disgrace and the crime rate
in the United States no longer compares favorable with that
of the leading countries of the world. We must look into our
own consciences to see what is the trouble.
The fact is that the problem is one for all Americans
and all Americans should turn their attention to it. The par-
ents of America must face the fact that the juvenile delin-
quency of recent years is the responsibility of lack of disci-
pline and training in the home. American fathers are more
to blame in this regard than mothers-for it is the father,
in the las analysis, who should exert final and firm author-
ity with the children.
In that field, American fathers are the world's worst.
They too often abdicate their authority to the already-busy
wife, who must run the house, supervise the meals and watch
over everyone's well being. As a result, we have too many
delinquents who might have been well-trained and well-be-
The latest FBI annual report shows that the trend in
this country to more and more crime is continuing and that
things are getting worse-not better. It may be convenient
to blame the churches and schools but the major responsibili-
ty is to be found in the home.
And while Port St. Joe is not too much bothered with a
situation such as this, it does not behoove us to stand on
the steps like the Pharisee and beat our chest exclaiming
in a loud voice, "Look how good we are!" Rather, it would
be to our good advantage to take a close notice of Mr. Hoo-
ver's statistics and warnings.
Port St. Joe can remain a good place to live-relatively
free from crime and juvenile delinquency-if we as parents
will assert our responsibility in the right direction.
Nothing guides a missile quite so good as a hot rear end.
Nothing will guide a child in the right direction quite as ef-
fectively as an occasional "hot end" applied at the "critical"
moment. We are not a dependent upon child psychology.
Six Things We Are For
(From the Wytheville, Va., Enterprise)
Every day of every passing week a few people (often a
very few) are awakening from their Rip Van Winkle sleep
and becoming aware of the very real threat to the freedom
enjoyed by Americans. Occasionally a person will be startled
shocked at the loss of freedoms and privileges he like the
majority of citizens have been "too busy" to pause, think,
If freedom is to survive there obviously must be a good
.sound, responsible government at the local level, the coun-
ty level, th estate level, and of tremendous importance at the
federal level. The Enterprise believes that those who are
sincerely interested in the preservation of Americanism in
the full meaning of the word must have a positive approach.
It is necessary that we are FOR something, rather than
The Enterprise asks you-you-you-Yes veery reader
to join with us in being FOR a positive program. Here it is:
WE ARE FOR a strong national defense without extra-
WE ARE FOR a sound dollar that commands respect
in the money markets of the world and protects the buying
power of our citizens.
WE ARE FOR maximum freedom in our personal enter-
prise system and for minimum government interference in
the affairs of business and labor.
WE ARE FOR economic growth that is rooted in our
free economic system, our dynamic industrial and marketing
WE ARE FOR social progress that comes from the en-
terprise of the individual, of many individuals working toge-
ther-not through bureaucratic compulsion.
WE ARE FOR a government that is colsest to the indi-
vidual-a government that is the servant, not the master of
BECAUSE the above is the philosophy of government
set forth by our forefathers and the framers of the Consti-
BECAUSE we support candidates for political office who
come the closest to advocating the above-
BECAUSE it is our very firm conviction this nation can
fall apart with reference to individual freedom-
BECAUSE America can fall prey to the Communist doc-
trine by financial insolvency-

politically-criticized for supporting a candidate (it happens
regardless of who, or what party)-of being old-fashioned,

It is not surprising that there
are so many overweight persons
in the United States. Having the
highest level of economy in the
world, it follows that we are the
best fed people -in the world.
This situation has led, unfortun-
ately, to ingrained habits of selt.
Our high standard of living is
accompanied by a high death
rate from diseases and condi-
tions brought on and aggravated
by excess fat. It is estimated
that a 30 percent increase in
weight before the middle years
increases the potential death rate
as much as 75 to 80 percent.
It is not easy to lose weight
for most people and the desire
to do so must come from within
the person. Generally speaking,
other people seldom sell an over-
weight individual on the fact
that he or she should reduce. But
when a woman decides to reduce
with the objective of increasing
her own attractiveness, results
are usually obtained. The over-
weight businessman is seldom
responsive to the pleas of his
wife and family that he reduce,
but when the problem is dis-

Dodder-known as love vine-
has no amorous motives when it
becomes attached to one of your
ornamentals. It is a killer plant
with low morals.
So beware of this small yellowish
vine that some people place in
their garden plants for added beau-
ty. It is a parasitic pest.
The hosts for dodder are many
in number. These include most or-
namentals and garden vegetables.
There is a belief that if a maiden
desires to check 'the sincereity of
her swain's love, she tosses 'a
length of dodder over her .left
shoulder, then leaves and returns
in three days.
'If the love vine Is still alive--and
in most cases it is because there
is nearly always a 'host plant 'avail-
able-the .beau still loves her. (We

Regardless of the method of
* spreading, dodder is 'an undesirable
pest for the gardener. Being incap-
alble of manufacturing its own food,
the ,parasite sends root-like growths
into -the host plant 'and cheats the
ornamental out of its ,plant food.
Control measures include hand
picking .the vine-like growth from
the ornamentals and. destroying it
If seed pods have formed before
th-. pest is spotted, cultivate the
soil in the infested area next
spring. This will kill the germin-
ating plants before they grow out
in search of a 'host plant.
Don't try to destroy dodder with
chemicals, because chmeicals that
will kill dodder will kill the host
Sikes remarked that "although the

Two decades ago, 7,000 children died every year of

It's the new wonder drugs-unknown two decades

The meeting will 'be widely ad-
