THE STAR, Port St. Joe, FPl. THURSDAY, SEPT. 21, 1961
It's Budget Time Again
What with the month of September fading fast, it is
approaching the time when the City Commission must ap-
prove a budget and set the millage rate for another year of
With this time drawing near, it hardly seems possible
that the City will retain its frugal millage rate of last year,
at which time they levied 8.5 mills for the city operation.
This reduction in millage was brought about by economic con-
ditions in Port St. Joe at the time. However, in practicing
their drastic economy, the city ended up the year lacking the
money to perform several necessary tasks.
The outlook for next year's taxes is for more taxes than
this year. The city now has some slack to catch up. There
is new furniture in the Municipal Hospital to pay for and
other needs staring the Commission in the face that will re-
quire additional funds to accomplish.
But even with the advent of new taxes, we do not think
that the Commission will go in for any "frills" in the next
year's operation of the city. While money is beginning to
flow a little in Port St. Joe, things are still close-although
not so close as some other places. We look for some major
expenditures in the new budget, but none that isn't vitally
-needed for the city's well-being.
With the drawing up of the budget, everybody will have
their "pet project", they would like to see included in the
new budget. We are not different from anybody else. We
have a pet project. A project that we think deserves the
close consideration of the Commission. We think the Com-
mission should give sympathetic study to the Jaycee plan on
If you remember, the Jaycees presented a study they
had made on the existing city street lights and those lights
needed throughout the City to the Commission for considera-
tion. The plan was very detailed in that it even included the
cost to the city for each of several different lighting plans.
The Jaycee plan also called for a "white-way" lighting
of-all approaches to the city, as well as ample residential
What would such a street lighting plan mean to Port
St. Joe? It would serve a two-fold need. First, the ample
lighting throughout the city would provide a built-in burglar
protection. Protection against street "mugging" and as-
saults against pedestrians. And if this factor were not
enough the "white way" approaches to the City would give
our city a pleasing appearance that would do much to adver-
tise us to strangers approaching our city at night.
If our memory serves us correctly, the Jaycee lighting
plan, based on sound planning-not desires-would cost the
City less than $1,000.00 a year more for street lighting than
it is now paying.
We say the benefits far outweigh the cost. What the
Commission will say about this matter, we shall see in about
two or three weeks.
The Unemployment Racket
Elections, government spending, the destinies of politi-
cal parties, as well as the future of liberty and self-govern-
ment, are critically involved in reports released periodically
by the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics dealing with unem-
ployment. These reports are accepted as gospel by nearly
everyone. And yet, according to a recent article in Reader's
Digest by James Daniel, they are far from a true measure
Definitions and methods used by the Bureau to obtain
its figures have steadily been altered to magnify the unem-
ployment problem. To an increasing extent, persons are be-
ing classified as unemployed, even though they are unem-
ployed from personal choice or, at least, are not out of j,
on account of "economic factors beyond the individual's con-
Some indication of the extent to which unemployment
statistics in this country have become distorted, may be
gained from the following comment of Dr. Seymour Wolfbein,
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor: "If we applied thc
same measuring rod as Europe, our unemployed would be
three million." (Instead of over 5 million) By contrast, if
Britain' used our system, according to a recent study reported
by the First National City Bank of New York, the unemploy-
jment figure would double.
Former Budget Director, Maurice Stans, in urging a
"study in depth" to discover how many of the reported unem
played actually are in the market for jobs, warned that, "Mo
dern governments are so heavily dependent upon statistics
in making decisions that more and more national policies of
.. immense importance for every American are determined by
them. Billions of our dollars now ride on the accuracy of
our monthly unemployment report."
The worse the unemployment figures can be made to
appear, the easier it is to push Uncle Sam into new federal
spending programs and new controls over the economy.

OW! A NEW WORLD OF WOORT OF
NEW FROM DIESEL TO DAZZLE!
High Torque Power
Here they are-handsome, functional
'62 Chevrolet trucks powered to work
harder In every weight class. Hefty new
V8's with the highest torque In Chev-
rolet history. New diesel brawn for
medium-duty models. And new power
to pick from in light-duty models.
There's a wider choice of power, a
wider choice of torque, across the
board. For heavies, there's the new
High Torque 409 V8*, with 16% per cent
more torque than ever before available
from Chevrolet. Big news in the middle-
weight class is the new Chevy-GM 4-53
Diesel. It's compact, rugged, high in
torque, and backed by years of GM
Diesel experience. In the light-duty
lineup, the High Torque 261 Six* adds
new sock, new savings in extra-tough
applications. You can pick from nine
rarin'-te-work, ready-to-save engines.
Handsome new work-styling includes
forward-sloping hoods that allowdrivers
to see as much as 10 feet more of the
road directly ahead. Chevrolet's famous
Independent Front Suspension gives
you a smoother riding, easier working,
longer lasting truck. New heavier duty,
smoother hypoid rear axles for middle-
weights. Rugged new I-beam front
axles* of 9,000- or 11,000-lb. capacity
are available on Series 80 heavyweights.
Mufflers are longer lived on all models.
You'll find a total of 198 models in the
new '62 Chevy line-including three
work-proved, versatile Corvair 95's.
Every model is built to out-haul, out-
last and out-value any other truck at
anywhere near the price. See your
