Florida Highway Patrol
The Florida Highway Patrol
number one enemy this week is the
following taoo closely violation
which last year was responsible
for 23,000 driver violations in Flor-
Statewide concentration is di-
rected towards these "bumper
thumpers". Rear end crashes are
the easiest of accidents to prevent
and are the direct result of drivers
following another vehicle so close-
ly they can't stop or dodge in time.
Following too closely is forbidden
by law and each driver must con-
sider his speed and the condition
of the highway.
This one violation contributes to
more accidents in Florida than any
other violation. A good recommend-
ed yardstick is one car length for
each ten miles of your speed dur-
ign, clear 'weather, between you and
the car in front.
A traffic collision is occurring in
Florida every four and a half -min-
utes with someone being injured
every 15 minutes. Following too
closely collisions can 'be 'avoided
if more drivers would make driving
a full time job and keep their -eyes
on -the car behind -as well as in

ob Sikes Reports...
I have noted the recommenda-
tions by the Board of Control that
a new four-year state university be
constructed in the Pensacola area
by 1970. Presumably, this would
mean 'a delay in' several years be-
fore the start of construction. I

delay into a four-year institution.
While we wait in Northwest Flor-
ida, the already overcrowded facill-
ties at other major state institu-
tions continue to be further over-
taxed. I have consistently felt that
our principal state universities al-
ready are too large and that a dis-
service is done to the institution
and to the students by further ex-
panding the student enrollment.
The rapid growth of the Western
counties of Florida and the special-
ization required by industry and
military installations should leave
no doubt that the need is present
and the time for action on ,a four-
year institution is now.
The prospect of a substantial
British settlement within the Eglin
Reservation has provoked consid-
erable interest. Actually, the 'deci-
sion to train British personnel in
the use of the Sky.bolt Missile was
announced about a year ago, and
some British personnel have been
located at Eglin since -May. Delays
in reaching .final agreement on de-
tails' have kept the project from
'becoming an actuality. But a few
days ago a contract for construct-
ing trailer camp facilities for the
British personnel was awarded by
.the Air Force to 'Nelson Davis of
Fort Walton Beach. Presumably,
the training operation will get un-
derway within a few months. In
-my 'talks with representatives of
the British Crown, I stressed 'the
advantage of having the British
personnel live in the various cities
which make up the *Eglin commun-
ity and participate in community
life. However ,the British prefer
to have their own little colony ~nd
in this Ithe Air Force concurred.
Some 300 RAF personnel will be
engaged in the tests, and these to-
gether with their families will ,ap-
proximate an additional 1,000 peo-
ple 'to the Eglin area.
After a two-months delay in
settling questions about procedure,
the House and !Senate are working
to dispose of the backlog of an
propriation bills which are a neces-
sary part of every session. -Concern
has been felt in Florida voer the
fate o f funds for impacted school
areas. Final approval of fEunds for
school operation and school build-
in-g construction under this program
should be forthcoming well ahead
of the start of the school year and
no reductions are ,anticipated.

7 things to tell your son whe he
first borrows the family car
Don't take other drivers for granted.
They sometimes do unexpected things.
In the U.S. in 1960, they ran into station-
ary objects more than 150,000 times.
So don't be too optimistic. Cars backing
out of parking spaces do 'sometimes back
out blindly. Cars coming from the other
direction might swing into your lane-es-
pecially on hills and curves.
Your best protection is to drive defen-
sively. The only driver you can really be
sure of is yourself.
2 If the car won't start, there are a num-
,ber of simple things worth trying. Use
the starter in short bursts. Press accelerator
to the floor once, then hold it there while
you try starter.
With manual shift, keep clutch pedal
all the way down. With automatic trans-
mission, jiggle lever to make sure it's in
Note from Shell: We recently published
an advertisement with 7 simple starting
tips. For a free copy, write to the Shell Oil
Company, PO. Box272, NewYork46, N.Y.
3 Courtesy is contagious-and adds to
everyone's driving pleasure and safety.
Nobody ever cured a traffic jam by losing
his temper. If you can keep your sense of
humor and wait your turn, everyone will
probably get where he's going sooner. In-
Another suggestion: It takes only sec-
onds toilet someone enter the roadway
ahead of you, but it can save the other
driver minutes. Just remember to signal
the car behind that you're slowing down or
about to stop.
Cars respond to good care. Have the
oil, battery and water checked every
time you stop for gasoline.
When you're driving, listen for unusual
mechanical sounds. If you hear one, have
it checked right away. It could save a big
repair bill later on.
On rough roads, take it easy-tires are
tough, but they are destructible.

5 Remember what you learned to get
your driver's license, and you'll be a
better driver. Eight out of ten car accidents
stem from improper driving practices-
such as speeding, failing to yield right-of-
way and following other cars too closely.
Truck drivers and other professionals
have very few of these accidents-mile for
mile, about one-quarter as many as other
drivers. The professionals know the rules
of good driving-and obey them.
6 If you're going to be late, call home.
IAnd if car trouble is the reason, call
the nearest service station, too.
Park off the traffic lanes and wait in the
car until help arrives-with the hood up to
show you're disabled. Making repairs close
to a busy road can be dangerous.
Note from Shell: Over 12,000 of our
dealers go to special training schools each
year. There, they learn how to spot trouble
in a hurry. A Shell dealer can be helpful
to you in almost any emergency,
7 Have a good time. So far, almost
everything you've heard about cars
has to do with safety.
Now you're about to find out what a
pleasure they can be. Here are the keys.
Just take your responsibilities in stride.
And have fun.
Comforting fact for parents: Drivers
with less than three months' experience ac-
count for very few serious accidents. That's -
a good sign that most new drivers do take
their responsibilities seriously. So ou yoca

This requires little effort, as the

Some gardeners are not adept at
loafing. So when every .means of
procrastination fails, then think of
methods of brightening up the pa-
tio. One suggestion is to try flow-
ers in portable pots.
Colorful flowers suggested for
the outdoor living room include
ccokscomb, geraniums, petunias,
marigolds and bachelor -buttons.

What to plant isn't important.
The main goal is to out-do the
neighbors in selecting unique con-
tainers for the flowers.
Homes with Early American mo-
tif can follow the same decor in
the patio. This ,gives a wide range
of containers. A three-legged iron
kettle with a 'broken lip is a prize
possession, -especially if you can
dream up an authentic-sounding
tale about the little's initial use.

Brass cuspidors are fine for
small plants. An old wooden well
bucket with a rotting rope 'still tied
to .'the bail is another suggestion.
A bread tray-out of which tons
of biscuits were made--will make
an ideal flower .container if you
can locate one. The same is true
for 'a well worn crock-type churn or
a giasnt-size syrup kettle.
The modern-type home can se-

As President Kennedy gathers with his military and
dipRoimia e.meritrs for a huddle on how far we can go; in
aqcom.nodating the Russians in that nuclear test ban treaty,
vigte u-navoidably reminded of State Department Publica-
tibog 77 presenting to the UN a three-stage plan for com-
p, jl armament, and thegeneral surrender to the Reds
=""W i infamous "Liberal Papers".
e recall, too. more recent liord, from Geneva from our
djp MAdaeZtjiegotiator, Arthur H. Dean, to the effect that
le it, -,bJe nice to have control posts inside the USSR
f a i tp cheek on atomic blasts, "perhaps we could do,
w rm". And this remark coincided with reports
sugg~ lht we now have improved means of blast detec-
tion tha operate effectively from outside Red territory.
thius, while we do not ieitend to predict the outcome of
the whitee House test-ban meeting (and'we hope our misgiv-
ings are soon relieved), we should nevertheless be prepared
for UA hb e crucial issue of inspection-on which
we and tfhe Russians have locked horns since the beginning
of the::talks. r, Why, we might ask, can't the Reds "accommo-
date" u-wliern wve offer them the same control set-up we
are demanding ._..;,
Should.we a0andonour position on control posts, on the
grounds that we can monitor the Russians from outside, we
will irrevocably .have lost any nuclear weapons superiority
we may now possess. For we should know by now that while
we abad.hn testing, teie Russians will proceed happily with
testprograms as they please. That we will know what they
are doing-and -even where-will not disturb them in the
least. Their bland, unblushing denials will be convincing to
other nationss in direct ratio to the degree of mortal terror
with which these countries regard the Soviets.
Evdi the on-the-ground inspection system we have been
insist ingon may not be enough to protect us. But anything
less cou:l be suicide. "

THAT VALUABLE LITTLE
The little black bag is an ex-
c'-i.i,. valuable tool, but more
important yet is the physician's
'.j~iowledge, of how to use the
items found inside.
A symbol of the medical pro-
faession f r years, the little black
bag rep:resents different things
to differc::i, people. The hidden
contents l::,ve been imagined by
the wary to be evil smelling

ture. -Cluh'ren of a less en-
lightened era were mysteriously
informed that in the little black
bag the family doctor might

The contents of the doctor's
bag are assembled with careful
attention. Equipped with medi-
cations and instruments and
using them with full knowledge
and understanding, the physi-
cian can bring relief to suffer-
ing and on occasion provide the
neans that makes the difference
between life and death.
As is natural, the young doc-
tor beginning to practice is apt
to carry more articles than he
will be called upon to use. The
physician long experienced in
practice has acquired knowledge
of just about what medicine and
equipment he is going to need
from day to day. The contents
vary, of course, according to the
type of specialty practiced.
The .black bag goes along on
regular calls and emergency
calls. For the stricken patient,
who must have immediate
emergency treatment in order
to live until he reaches the hos-
pital. the doctor's bag is an in-
dispensable aid. That is why
the physician makes every ef-
fort to carry' at all times those
preparations that can relieve

Raising beautiful' poinsettias and
managing a budget have one thing
._iJn. common-that's pinching.
If you're adept at penny-pinch-
* ing a ,'budget, then pinching poin-
settia buds -will come naturally.
The -why's of nipping unwise
spendingg in the bud are many. The
logic lor pinching plants is for a
larger display of "flowers".
Debudding a poinsettia shoot
when it reaches 6 inches in length
will cause the- plant to grow more
compactly and to produce more
branches on -which to set color this
I~t you have let a number of
'potlsiittla shoots become long and
'leggy, it Is not too late to remove
.th.e wayward shoots. The trimmed
aes-ea riote- easily under
Constant mist and forced to set
color by fall.,
Be sure to call -a halt to bud
pinching during late August. This
willgive the plant time to mature
its color .tips before frost.
'Whiteflies, if they reproduce ac-
cording to schedule, will soon be-
cme a problem on, gardenias, 11-
gustrums'.,and other ornamentals.
One way' of checking for an infes-
tation build-up' is to shake a limb
of a suspected plant. If a cloud of
whiteflies rises from the leaves,
the answer is obvious.
BOr whitefly control,' Entomolo.
gist James Brogdon with the Agri-
cultural [Extension Service says use
a malathlio spray. Mix 2 teaspoons
.of 17 percent emulsifiable malla-
thion per gallon of water.
Sooty mold on leaves of ornamen-
tals s associated with whiteflies.
The unsightly black smut is a fun-
Sugsthat thrives on excretions from
Im-matni e whiteflies, aphids, mealy-
ibugs and soft scales. Controlling
&".ie insects usually prevents the
t'ip' an-. eye peeled forhopping
in eota such as Georgia thumpers
S(giaashoppers), katydids and field
wcickets. These pests are leaf chew-
iers. Some -of them 'are night eaters
which hide in the ground-mulch by
d.a3 and rasp away on the orna-
mentals by night.
SChlordane will kill the hoppers
1a- well as several kinds -of beetles.
'Spray the ground as well as the
plant 'for complete control.
Summer is lay-by time for many
grad'eners-they allow part of the
garden area to rest. However, as
the sun may bleach the bare soil
into a sand dune, it is better to
plant the plot to a cover crop.
A legume cover will increase the
nitrogen supply in the soil. Crota-
laria or cowpeas are two excellent
summer green-manure crops which
will check weed growth 'and give
the garden a neat appearance. The
crotalaria will produce a yellow
canopy of -blossoms this fall.
If you plant cowpeas, be sure to
choose a nematode-resistant varie-
ty such as Iron or Brabham.
Two -chores which cannot be
avoided during 'hot weather are
mowing the lawn and shearing the
'hedge. Both jobs have to be tackled
when the plant growth demands it.
Lawn grass allowed to grow too
tall is likely to go to seed. Also,
delayed cutting will leave a harm-
ful layer of -clippings that may
shade the remaining leaves.
Sheared hedges which are allow-
ed to become shaggy before being
clipped must be pruned extensively
large stems are cut and bare areas
show on the hedge surface. The
best answer to trimming hedges
and mowing lawns during the sum-
mer is to tackle the job often and
trim a little at a time.
Broad-leaved evergreen shrubs
and trees need a summer shot of
fertilizer. Oranges, Mangos, azal-
eas, camellias, and 'many other or-
namentals come in this class.
Use a complete mixed fertilizer
and spread it tihnly over the soil
surface from 'about half-way into
the trunk to a few feet beyond the
foliage drip. Rake the plant fod
into the soil lightly.
