Drinking drivers can be divided
into two general groups. The intoxi-

mentioned and the social drinker
who has two drinks and is under

and the majority the social drinker.
Drinking drivers are involved in
about 30 per cent of all fatal acci-
dents and in some areas an even
higher ratio. A driver doesn't have
to 'be drunk to be dangerous as
small amounts of alcohol reduce
judgment, self control and driving

Only time can eliminate alcohol

While at this writing, it is
not known what action the
House will take on the cur-

regardless of what happens,
there is an indelible record
that these two senators took
a' stand against compromis-
ing with evil.
Both of them were behind the

would compromise with Satan.
And perhaps, in all fairness,
perhaps these officials are just
a product of the times which
tries to establish that alcohol-

and all the rest of this motley
crew, do not mean ill, they are
just suffering from an illness

The Blame for "Inadequate Schools"
Comes Right Back to "Mr. Citizen"
One of the most meaningful statements we have ever
heard came out of the Elementary School PTA meeting last
Thursday night... uttered by Leo Shealy.
The annual question had come up for discussion as
to whether or not to again sponsor a Hallowe'en Carnival
this year. This project, while it is a good money-maker, is
also a thorn in the side of the PTA each and every year.
The state association says no Bingo or other games of
chance should be sponsored by PTA. Private members con-
tend that in order to reap the returns necessary for such an
undertaking, some "games of chance" are necessary.
But then, Leo came up with this query, "Why spon-
sor a Carnival? Why do we need it? Is it to raise money or
to provide entertainment for the children?"
This is a loaded question, if we ever saw one.
While the "on the surface" reason for the carnival
each year has been to provide entertainment for the young-
sters a commendable purpose the underlying motive
for the carnival has been to raise money Money to be
spent on the purchase of NECESSARY items in the Elemen-
tary School. We should not have to be bothered with the
carnival for this reason.
It continues to "burn us up" that the tax assessment
practices in Gulf County are placed in a deep, dark closet, and
the door slammed shut. It seems that people think it will
bite if it is disturbed.
There is no earthly reason why the people of Port
St. Joe should waste their time putting on carnivals to raise
money to purchase necessary equipment for the schools. It
is commendable, however, that they will wisely spend their
time to provide such an activity for the younger children.
There is no excuse for Gulf County not being able to
provide the tax money to carry on the work of the schools
in a proper manner. And this can only be done with a realis-
tic valuation on real and personal property throughout the
county something that has never been.
It never ceases to make us shake our head in confusion
when a good citizen of Gulf County wonders why we can't
have some of the educational opportunities in Gulf County
offered by other counties. Let us say right here, that we
think the educational opportunities in Gulf County will afford
a good sound education to any child who wants it. But we
do admit that several other counties have more educational
advantages than the youth of Gulf County may obtain.
It must be clearly understood that every county in
the State of Florida receives the same amount of money from
the state, per pupil enrolled. Gulf County receives as much
money from the state to educate your Susie as Dade re-
ceives from the State to educate their Johnnie. And, it must
also be pointed out that it costs just as much or maybe more
to educate a child in Dade County as it does in Gulf County.
(We are speaking of basic education.)
All of the extras must be paid for by the taxpayers
of the county. And, since the majority of Gulf County's
potential tax payers aren't even on the tax rolls of the county,
we are shirking our responsibilities and missing the best way
possible to give our children the better things in life.
No, we don't have to have carnivals to provide the
necessary educational facilities But we must meet our
responsibilities to provide them.
Graphic Example Is Being Provided of
Need for Adequate Railroad System
Trucks and airplanes have become so plentiful that
many people have seriously wondered whether or not we ac-
tually need the railroad system of the country or not As a
result, the troubles of this transportation system have been
virtually ignored by the public.
The chaotic conditions being caused by the railroad
strike in the mid-west should serve to open our eyes. The
sugar beet crop stands a good chance of rotting because of
lack of transportation. The grain crop is lying on the ground
or in bins not getting to its market because of lack ade-
quate transportation. Meat is getting t since, coupled
with the farmers strike, the railroad strike has kept beef
from reaching the markets from other areas.
"The railroads are definite and sorely needed and their
problems should be one of the top priority concerns of the
nation in order to preserve the finest transportation and
freight hauling network in the world.

Wewahitchka Editor Sums Up Gulf County's Road Fund Outlay
Gulf's Secondary Road Fund Position
By ED BANDJOUGH
Editor, Gulf County Breeze
*According to annual report forms
from the State Road Department
to 'the County Commissioners, the
county secondary road fund was in
-the red $82,170.67 on July 1, 1961.
Then from July 1, 1961 to June
30, 1962, the county got $232,107.27
in secondary road foney. The State
Road Department figured the coun-
ty would get $241,000.00 during this
time, but its eyes were a little big-
ger than its stomach.
Anyhow, subtracting that sum of
$82,170.67 from the actual sum
raised ($232,107.27), the county
ended up with $149,936.60 in its sec-
ondary road fund in Tallahassee. Of
that amount, the county spent, or
the State Road Department spent
for it, a total of $145,358.29
,So, one July 1, 1962, the county
had a credit item on the books (in
Tallahassee) of $4,578.31.
Bear in mind that these sums
.are not actually sent to the county.
They are credited to the county
on State Road Department ,books
in, Tallahassee. At the beginning of
each fiscal year, the State Road
Department estimates what Gulf
County, alofig with the State's oth-
.er counties, will be credited with
during the forthcoming year. It re-
ports its estimate to the county.
Then, as revenue comes in, the ac-
'tual sum due the county is placed
on the credit side of the State Road
Department, Tallahassee-kept books
and the county is notified that it
has been credited with that sum.
Such reports are made to all coun-
ties each month.
'In its turn, the county commis-
sion -each year sets up a program
of secondary road construction, as-
signs each project a priority, and,
in the form of a resolution, 'sends
this program to the State Road De-
par'ment. In time, if the projects
qualify, the State Road Department
'asks for bids on them. Then if a
ibid on a project or projects is ap-
proved by the State Road Depart-
ment, the successful bidder goes to

SOURCE OF MONEY
This secondary road money
comes primarily from taxes on gas-
oline. Specifically, its three main
sources are: (1) 80% Surplus Gas
Tax, (2) Seventh Cent Gas Tax, and
(3) Federal aid to secondary roads.
In the 1961-62 year, No. 1 pro-
duced $147451.62. No. 2 produced
$71,108.83. No. 3 produced $13,-

upcoming yea---fiscal 1962-63?
What -does the State Road Depart-
ment figure will accrue 'to the coun-
ty secondary road fund? What are
the county's present plans for road
THIS TIME, WHAT?
During 1962-63, 'the ,State Road
Department figures 'the county will
accrue about $153,000. But that's
after the county's already-commit-
ted expenses are deducted. Ovre-
all, the State Road Department fig-
urs that during the next fiscal year,
$248,000 will 'be entered to the coun.
ty's credit on the secondary road
fund books. This, together with the
$4,578.31 carry-over item from this
year, brings the State Road Depart-
ment ,gross estimate ,to $252,578.31.
From this total, however, you've
got to subtract .previous commit-
ments, items not yet paid for. You
must also subtract the out taken
by the State Road Department for
its routine maintenance.
First, there's a construction item
of $5,852.30, outstanding against the
road to the Brotehrs River (S387
from SR 71 eastward). Subtraot
that. Then subtract $26,000 which
the State will' hold back for routine
road maintenance. Then subtract
another $68,000, the next payment
on the $850,000 bond issue.
That's an already-committed to-
tal of $99,852.30, leaving the county
an estimated $152,726.01 to spend
on road construction through June
30, 1963. In its estimate, the State
Road Department rounded off this
figure at $153,000.
Now, how will that estimated
$153,000 be 'spent? If the SRD ap-
proves, part of it will probably be
spent on these three projects, for
which the county ha already sent
a resolution to the road board, spe-
cifying 'this priority:
(1) A road from Wewa High
School to the new grade school
classrooms, i. e., from !Second St.
to -'Seventh St., looking east from
the high school; a sidewalk run-

Shell engineer uses stethoscope to help detect noise the ear alone can't hear. Super Shell fights three different engine noises to give you top performance.
How 3 of Super Shell's 9 ingredients fight
engine noise-including one hard-to-hear form of
knock that could lead to real damage
S HELL scientists will tell you that any
good gasoline should reduce engine
noise. That's why they include no less
than three noise-fighters in Super Shell's
9-ingredient blend. Here's how they work
to help give you a soft-spoken engine-
and top performance.
How Super Shell fights
High-speed knock makes a sharp, high-
pitched noise-like metal tapping against
metal. Because it's most likely to occur
in hot engines at turnpike speeds, high-
speed knock is often difficult to hear.
But even though you may not hear it,
high-speed knock can pound away at
pistons-even lead to costly damage.
Fortunately, high-speed knock isn't too
common. But Shell scientists have known
about it for a long time. Ever since they
pioneered the development of a substance
called Alkylate to help control high-speed
knock in aircraft engines. Today, Alkylate
is an ingredient in Super Shell gasoline.
How Super Shell fights wild ping
Wild ping doesn't last long. It sounds like
the erratic beat of a nervous drummer.
This clatter is actually a series of prema-
ture explosions. They're caused by glow-
ing deposits that ignite the fuel too soon.
Super Shell's famous TCP* additive
tackles this problem. It acts to "fireproof"
deposits that might glow. Result: chance
of wild ping is greatly reduced.
How Super Shell fights
Most people have heard ordinary knock.
It may sound to you like marbles dropping
into an empty oil drum.
Super Shell's anti-knock mix is so
powerful that a teaspoon per gallon is
enough to raise anti-knock rating a
full five points.
This anti-knock mix helps regulate the
combustion of Super Shell. Thus, each
piston gets a firm, even push. Not a sharp,

pressure for medicare ,for establish-
ing a Department of Urban Affairs,

with additional recklessness by the formance has been generally sound
It becomes increasingly apparent
smas that a grievous error was commit-
ted when the invasion of Cuba in
1961 was not supported 'by this
country. The reasons advnaced at
-that time for failure 'to support the
invasion carried logic and weight.
The feeling was that .more direct
involvement with American support
would react adversely for this
country 'throughout Latin America
S and, that Castro would die on the
-vine if left alone. Actually, Castro
has -ceased to be an effective fac-
tor in 'Cuba. The island republic Is
administered almost entirely by
Russia, and Castro is merely a fig-
urehead. Th eCuban economy is in
terrible shape but Communist regi-
mentation is so complete that Cuba
,can scarcely collapse. That means
we probably still have 'to do 'what
was planned a year and a half ago
and the job will 'be considerably
more difficult. It is alwayss hard ot
argue with success. Our Latin
Anerican eighlpbrs wo14,I have
'S been less critical of a successful in-
vasion of 'Cuba than they were of
The President has acted correct-
ly in asking for stand-by authority
to call up reserves. This is prompt-
ed not so much by the Cuban dellm-
ma as by the rising crescendo of
threats about Berlin. Apparently,
the West's resolution to stay in
Berlin is about to be put to the
'test again. Once more the U. S.
,and its alliesare going to have to
convince the Soviet Union that
they will not abonod nBerlin under
the threat of force. The talks of
Western statement and Soviet
'members have been unproductive
on the issue of Berlin. The Soviets
insist .that the West get out, and
;the West insists ,that they will
stay. So the test of nerves on this
question is to be repeated. The pro-
paganda barrage is increasing in
intensity and there are unmistak-
a'ble evidences of a build-up In
and Congress has insisted on main-
taining its own independence.
The Military Construction Ap-
propriation bill has cleared the
Congress and gone to the Presi-
d en t. It contains construction
items for Tyndall, Eglin and the
Naval Air Station. Most significant
of these is the new 'building for
th'e Naval School of Aviation Medi-
cine. After our initial trouble with
the .Senate which cut this building
from $5,200,000 'to $3,285,000, we
had no problem. The Senate 'ac-
cepted the House figures on other
construction items for these bases.
Action is anticipated in this ses-
sion on measures to increase the
compensation of retired Civil Ser-
vice employees. This should be a
must. Compensation for this group
'has not kept pace with rising costs
of living and they are entitled to
increases just as people who are
still 'employed by the Government
are entitled to periodic pay raises.
SUPPORT THE SHARKS
Communist guards, shows that we
are in for a rough winter. At the
same time, most observers still say
Khrushchev will stop short of war.
Congressman Otto Passman, who
is head of the Fireign Operations
Subcommittee on Appropriations,
knows more about 'the foreign aid
.program than any other person. He
has made it his specialty in Con-
gress and he has 'made a Herculean
effort to 'keep these expenditures
on a ra-sonable basis. He now
makes the amazing statement that
there are sufficient funds on hand
to operate the foreign aid program
'for more than two years without
additional appropriations. Never-
theless, approximately $5 billion is
.being asked for .the Mutual Secur-
ity program mfor Fiscal 1963. Con-
gressman Passman's Subcommittee
has spent 710 'hours in research and
hearings, fIli g three printed vol-
umes of over 3,200 pages, in their
study of this year's request for
funds for foreign aid. He is recom-
mending a cut of approximately a
billion dollars and his recommen-
dations are fully justified.
The constant fanfare In the
press about differences between
President Kennedy and the Con-
gress over enactment of his recom-
mendations could well leave an en-
tirely incorrect impression. As a
matter of fact the 87th Congress
has set a good ercord of 'accom-
plishments other than the fact that
spneding has been too high. Even
so, much of the increase in approp-
riations has been for defense and
for the space program. Congress
has adopted the Satellite Commun-
ications BIN, Is in the process of
adopting a Trade Expansion Bill,
has boosted social security benefits,
approved aid to depressed areas,

of Marianna, reunion chairman,
said several thousand offspring of
Andrew Elton Williams, pioneer
West Florida cattleman, are ex-

Judge McCrary said the reunion
-again *was *being held on Saturday
because this made it possible for
more boys and girls to learn of
the family traditions and to meet
their kin from other -sections of
the state and country. Until last
year, the reunion had ,always been

"The response to this change was
splendid," said Judge McCrary. 'It
is. highly important that the young
people participate if the reunions
are to thrive."
The renewal will bring the Wil-

of their teams out last week but
we are still two teams short of our
goal. Even with six -teams -going,
the action got hot and heavy.
Jim Atkinson led the summer
league champions, the St. Joe
Stevedores, to a complete sweep
of the Florida National Bank team.
Jim had, a fine 543 series to lead
the Stevedores against Billy Joe
Richards, fine 552 for the 'bank men.
Costin's were caught napping by
Roche's Furniture and had to :give
up their only loss this year. Tom-
my Pridgeon led the Costin team
with 539 and Ashley CosMn had
489. Wayne Smith tried to get back
at his old team -by rolling 572 but
his series was not enough. Strobel
helped with his 468 for Roches.
Basil's Standard stayed in the
top rung with a convincing win of
three points for Michigan Chemical.

If frost pays a visit before the
plants have time ti harden, cover
them with cloth, wood, straw or
sheets of plastic. If you use plas-

material shortly after frost melts.
If it is not removed the sun's rays
can broil the plant in its own juice.
Now is the time to plant Easter
