Coach Craig Says High School Will
Begin Program of Physical Fitness
'Coach Marion Craig spoke to the
Port St. Joe Rotary Club last
Thursday at noon. Coach Craig
told the Club of the 'athletic and
physical education departments of
the Gulf County ISchools adopting
the Presiden"s plan to build phy-
sical fitness into our youth. Craig
said that every high school boy-
and girl, would receive at least 15
minutes of vigorous body-building
exercise -each day.
Coach Craig told the Club of
various coaches and physical edu-
cation clinics he had attended dur-
ing the summer which also stres-
sed the President's 'program. The
speaker said that the National
Coaches Association had adopted
the plan nation-wide and would
urge its acceptance into each of the
schools represented at 'the clinics.
In telling the Club about Port
St. Joe's football future and pros-
pects .for the coming season, Craig
was enthusiastic about his charges
willingness 'to try. He was -pessi-
mistic about the chances for a win-
ning season due to a lack of -first-
class reserves. "All of our boys
are putting forth the utmost 'effort
to get ready", said Craig, "But let's
face it, the ones who know how
to play are our starting 11. The
others are trying, but just haven't
.been playing football long enough
to have the finesse to be termed a
frist class club".
The Club presented Coach Craig
with a crying 'towel, 'handsomely
labeled as such, to help see him
through the coming ,season.
Guest of the Rotary Club was

As -time for making up a new
annual budget for the coming year,
the City Commission began to won-
der Tuesday night just what should'
be included in the new -budget.
Commissioner John Robert Smith
then launched into a discussion on
paving needs throughout the city.
Smith -discussed, for -the Commis-
sion's consideration, -the need for
-paving of seventh ,Street, Eighth
Street to Garrison Avenue, paving
Marvin Avenue from 16th Street
to 20th Street, Woodward Avenue
from Fifth to Tenth Street and all
of McClellan Avenue. Smith offer-
ed the opinion 'that these streets
should be paved with city funds.
Otis Pyle appeared before the
Commission 'and requested that the
paving of Seventh Street be in--
cluded in the next budget.
Work on the new budget will
probably 'begin at the next meet-
ing, according to City Auditor and
Clerk, R. W. Henderson, which is
Tuesday, September 19. The city
usually adopts its budget about
the middle of October.
New Speed Limits
Discussion arose concerning he
new speed limits on Garrison Ave-
nue, Monument Avenue and Consti-
tution Drive. These limits have re-
cently been hiked 'by ten mph by
the 'State Road Department.
'Coming up for'the most part of
the discussion was the hiking of
the speed limit on Garrison .Ave,-
;.e from 2 rnmph to 65.: aph. m -n
nis.ioner Smith thought this speed
.imnit was too high in view of the
many school children living in he'
area and travelling the street to
and from school.

Cost of Electricity Down
Clapp said that through the years
the cost -trend of electricity has
been down while the average fam-
ily use continues to increase. In
1941, Clapp said, the average reve-
nue per residential kilowatt-hour
of electricity was 4.27 cents, while
at the end of 1960 it had come-down,
to 3.02 cents. During the same 20

by Vant Neff
The other day Labor Secre-
tary Goldberg gave us some bad
news about unemployment. His
department records show that
over 1,000,000 Americans have
been out of work for six months
or longer. We seem to be headed
for greater national prosperity,
but the number of hard-core un-
employed is growing too. 100,-
000 workers were added to this
list in July.
The administration has cer-
tainly done a great deal to help
workers who have lost their
jobs. They have extended unem-
ployment benefits; aided chil-
dren of the unemployed; appro-
priated millions of dollars to
stimulate local industry where
factories have had to shut down
or move away.
The money to support these
programs comes from you and
me and all individuals who are
working and from companies
and business firms on whose
success depends the creation and
maintenance of jobs and who
must pay taxes to create the
new jobs to care for the un-
Something must be wrong.
The economy is starting to
boom. Sales are up. Wages are
up. Why hasn't business hired
more people and cut this unem-
ployment rate. sharply? Most
business people say that the
answer is costs. The administra-
tion has more than provided for
the unemployed. But it has not
provided the tools that the
American businessman needs -
tax relief and tax incentives to
retain profits, expand business
and hire more people.
Many businessmen have in-
vested vast sums of money in
new plants and equipment in
the last ten years. Yet their
profit after taxes remains about
the same as it was in 1951.
When you think about it -
the government can't create
jobs. Jobs come from employers
who have the money and equip-
ment to offer employment. Can
you harvest a crop without
seeds? Did you ever hear of a
farmer making any money that
This is the mistake the gov-
ernment has been making: In-
stead of sowing the seeds for
more jobs by giving business
the means to grow, they move
Labor Secretary Goldberg
to raise- taxes, reduce profits,
and so curtail the. creation of
new jobs in industry.
Short sighted union leaders
are also adding to the woes of
the unemployed by demanding
not only more fringe benefits
but higher wages for less work.
All of these 'demands must be
paid for by the employer. There
isn't enough money left after
wages and taxes are paid to
invest in expansion. Rather than
take on new people, the em-
ployer must cut his staff.
One electronics firm agreed

There has been a greai hue

if automation didn't make this

almost anything you can name

porary dislocation automation

Growth occurs when business-
men can hang on to enough of
