Move Made To By-Pass Bill To
Prohibit "Retaining" Engineer
Max W. Kilbourn, of Florida En-
gineering Service appeared before
the County Board Tuesday night at
their regular meeting to ask what
his status with the county was, now
that a bill had passed the Legisla-
ture to prohibit the county retain
ing the services of an engineering
Kilbourn said, that according to
the bill, his services were no long-
er legally available to the county
on a retainer basis since June 18.
He wished a clarification of his
status with the Board.
Some hour and a half of discus-
sion went into this matter with the
Board agreeing, to a man, that the
county needed the type service
rendered by Florida Engineering's
Attorney David Carl Gaskin told
the Board that the bill had pro-
hibited the county from "retain-
ing" the services of an engineering
firm. He pointed out that defini-
tion of words would allow the
county to legally "employ" Kil-
bourn in the capacity that Florida
Engineering had been "retained".
Commissioner Walter Graham
moved that the Board employ Kil-
bourn as county engineer and de-
fine his duties as follows:
Examine all plats for compliance
with county rules; establish right
of way monuments; inspect street
and road construction work in
progress; advise the Board on road
and drainage problems; attend all
Board meetings and perform any
other duties requested by the
All of the Board members ex-
cept James McDaniell voted for
Graham's motion to hire Kilbourn.

FHP Says 15
Will Die July 4
TALLAHASSEE The Flor-
ida Highway Patrol predicts that
15 persons will die in traffic
crashes on the state's streets and
highways during the July 4th
holiday week end.
The Patrol's prediction is for
the period beginning 6 p.m. July
3 and lasting through midnight
July 7. This year's prediction co-
vers a 102 hour period, 72 hours
longer than the 1962 holiday
when two people died as a re-
suit of traffic crashes.
The 1963 prediction is some-
what lower, however, than the
resulting figures of 1961 when,
in a 102 hour period, 21 highway
deaths were recorded.

THE SUPREME COURT
MUST BE CURBED
The U. S. Supreme Court has
struck a body blow at our Consti-
tution. It has placed an interpreta-
tion of the wording of the Consti-
tution that was never intended by
the Founding Fathers. They were
deeply religious men. All they
sought to do was to prevent the
establishment of a state church.
They could not have dreamed that
their wording would be used as an
argument against religion itself.
The Court has kept its sorry re-
cord intact. A Court which has al-
lowed itself to be used as the er-
rand boy for racial and civil rights
extremists and which has ruled
more than once in favor of Com-
munists could hardly be expected
to stand up for the Holy Bible or
for prayer in the public schools.
This is another blow at the bright
symbolism which made this coun-
try the hope of the world for so
many years. The decision has
cheapened America and weakened
its moral strength. I sincerely
hope the Congress will rebel
against the things that are hap-
pening to our country and its peo-
ple and reassert the principles
which made us a great nation. As
a first step, the Supreme Court
must be curbed.
JOINT DOG FLY CONTROL
INITIATED AT PANAMA CITY
I am advised by the U. S. De-
partment of Agriculture that coor-
dination of research has now been
arranged on the dog fly control
program by state and federal agen-
cies as recently suggested by your
Congressman. Upon the advice of
the Florida State Board of Health,
which already has entomological
work in progress at Panama City,
it has been agreed that coopera-
tive work would be located there.
Bay County health authorities al-
so will participate in the program.
The Director of the Agricultural
Research Service of USDA states:
"We are hopeful that the federal
and state team research efforts
will produce practical and effective
methods of minimizing the serious
dog fly problem in the Southeast."
It is my belief that this is one of
the most important steps taken in
years to advance the Gulf Coast as
a recreation area. A full month
can be added to the vacation sea-

U. S. RUSSIAN SPACE
Shortly after the epochal space
flight by Gordon Cooper I urged
President Kennedy to make a
stronger case for a joint U.S.-
Russian space exploration effort. I
am afraid that no action was tak-
en on this suggestion. Now the
Russians have again trumped our
ace, and I presume we shall find
both countries continuing a fren-
zied effort to best each other in
space. Space exploration is very
largely non-milixtary. There is lit-
tle to b3 gained from individual ef-
forts by competitive nations. In
fact, the joint efforts of the two
countries would be much more pro-
ductive and much less costly. A
saving of billions would be in pros-
pect. Possibly the Russians would
not agree, but we don't know until

Weekly Editor Disturbed by Shenanigans
In Washington; As All of Us Should Be
"News dispatches originating in Washington during re-
cent weeks," writes Editor and Publisher J. B. Chism, Jr.,
of the Pelham (Ga.) Journal, "have started my blood boil-
ing, and the more I read about the proposals coming out of
the White House, the more coal is added to the fire that is
sending my temperature soaring.
"It has been my policy for the 518 columns ('Down
the CHISM TRAIL') that have appeared under the
above heading to stick strictly to local matters, leaving
national affairs to the 'big wheels'. But lately, the
Executive Department of our Government is aiming the
gun-sights close to home, and unless some block is plac-
ed in front of some of these proposals we are going to
wake up and find ourselves in a mess of a predicament.
"I have stood by with tongue in cheek long enough,
as too many weekly editors throughout the nation have
done, until things have gone too far to be curtailed."
Editor Chism observes that there may not be a single
reader who will agree with him, "but thank God, not agree-
ing is one privilege Americans have long enjoyed". He warns
however, that the right to an opinion will be lost, too, if
things keep on the way they are going, and hastens to sound
off while he can:
"The news articles of late have clearly and distinct-
ly stated that it is the President's desire to put every
business purchasing articles manufactured out of state
under interstate commerce, thus giving him the power
to dictate the policies of said business.
"In other words, a restaurant serving a bowl of
soup canned out of state would be considered doing busi-
ness in interstate commerce, and the owner, not obeying
certain policies set up for him, could have his doors
closed and he and his family could just starve to death.
"The ballot-box is still the strongest weapon we have
to combat this sort of thing," says Editor Chism, and he
urges his readers to register, to vote and to "vote your con-
victions, not vote just because your grandfather voted that
way", just as we urge our readers to do.
This editor is right, of course-and has pointed out one
pitfall that may lie ahead. But there are others--Federalized
education, Medicare, a shifting policy on foreign aid that
threatens to cut the support we are giving our friends to
give moro to pro-Communist and Neutralist nations--that
are more imminent. He is right that every editor, daily
and weekly, city and small town, should keep his readers
posted. But these are issues that will be decided in Con-
gress, not at the ballot-box. Voters must first impress
upon their Congressman and Senators what they want-then
reward these men or retire them-at the polls.
"The more I think of it," concludes Editor Chism,
the more I am coming to share that feeling of Patrick
Henry, who stood to his feet and shouted: 'Give me li-
berty or give me death.' "
But we might warn Editor Chism that during these
times it would be dangerous to make such a statement un-
less one had his will and testament made out.
We hear a lot about our dwindling gold supplies due to
our "big give-away" to foreign countries to foreign aid. And
we believe that a certain amount of this is necessary-to our
allies, if not to us. But what would be wrong with taking
these lately publicized counterpart funds and use them for
Court 'Has, in Effect, Vowed To Protect
The Religion of Atheism In Schools
We respect whole-heartedly the Supreme Court's con-
tention that they wish to keep church and state separated.
And we concur with their wish to keep denominational teach-
ing out of schools.
But we cannot agree with their method of going about
Also, we cannot see the Supreme Court's rulings being
automatically the "law of the land" as they have been in
so many instances lately. As we see their duties, they are
"interpreters" of the meaning of the law not the apply-
ing body. And, what with their general lack of judicial
experience as individuals, we even shudder at the thought of
having them as "interpreters" or "the last word" of U. S.
But, getting back to the subject at hand. We concur
that our government and the teachings of the church are like
gasoline and water. They should not mix. But water is
placed in gasoline pipelines to separate gasoline from other
substances that might contaminate it, and to keep one gaso-
line separated from another. This is the part religion plays
in our government, while remaining entirely separate
keeping hte government pure, untainted and pointed toward
the high ideals on which this country was founded.

And the bitter fact remains
that every taxpayer is not only
burdened with the welfare load,
but also with the salaries and
expenses of almost 10,000,000
people employed by federal,

While the major attention is
focused on the costs of federal
government, it is a fact that
state and local governmental
costs are contributing mightily
to the cost of existence.

As shown by the above fig-

Forced feeding of a child
against his will usually is a mis-
take. Mothers often worry for
fear something will happen to
a child if he misses one or two
meals. Something is more likely
to happen to the child forced to
eat when he doesn't want food.
Appetite is variable, especially
the appetite of a child, and there
are many reasons for a child's
apparent loss of appetite. There
may be an oncoming sickness.
The food ^offered may have
been causing a disagreeable re-
action. The child may be too
excited or too tired to eat.
Not uncommonly the child
wishes to attract attention by
refusing to eat. He may be ex-
perimenting with his power to
impose his will, rather than just
to obey his mother. Practically
all children try this trick at
The manner of handling such
a try for independence can be
direct and simple. The moment
the child refuses food, take it
away and say nothing further
about it. There is no danger
that he will starve or do him-
self harm by missing a meal or
two. If the mother is deter-
mined not to be overwhelmed
by a small show of rebellion, he
will tire of his performance. A
normal child will eat when he
N a child refuses to eat or
shows a small appetite beyond
a period of a day or two, he
should be taken to a physician

can reduce your fertilizer bills by

Price Increase of Motor Vehicle Tags
Will Go Into Effect On Monday, July I
The new, increased schedule of
fees for auto, truck and trailer
tags will go into effect July 1,
according to County Tax Collector
Pridgeon said he had received
notification of the effective date
-as set by the Legislature when
it increased the fees-from State
Motor Vhicle Commissioner Arch
Livingston in Tallahassee.
The first increases felt by tag
buyers will be on half-year tags
effective July 1, Pridgeon said.
Boat Trailer Tags
Pridgeon said the new half-year
rate for boat trailers 500 pounds
and under will be $5.50, up from
the present $3 annual fee. He said
citizens with trailers not yet tag-
ged can save by buying before
Under the new schedule, a half-
year "D" tag for cars 2,500 pounds
and under will be $6.75, up from'
$5.50, Pridgeon said. For a tag
with no letter prefix, 2,501 to 3,-
500-pound vehicles, it will be $10.50
up from $8. For a "W" tag, $3,501
to 4,500 pounds, it will be $14.25,
up from $10.50. For a "WW" tag,
more than 4,500 pounds, it will be
$18, up from $13.
Pridgeon said 1964 tags will be
sold as usual between Jan. 1 and
Feb. 20 renewal period but will
be good for 13 months-until
March of 1965.
He said the 1964 increased rates
will be: For a trailer 500 pounds
and under, $5.92, up from $3; for
a "D" tag, $14.04, up from $10.50;
for a no-letter prefix tag, $22.17,
up from $15.50; for a "W" tag,
$30.29, up from $20.50, and a
"WW" tag, $38.42, up from $25.50.
Pridgeon said a "Q" tag-for
cars more than 20 years old-will
sell for a half year after July 1 at
the same $5.50 rate, which is also
the present annual rate. For 1963,
he said, it will be $8.63.
He also reminded that the Legis-
lature increased the sales tax on
autos from 1 to 2 percent, effective

Quotation from a church bul-
letin: "Even if you are on the
right track, you'll get run over
if you just sit there" From
a sales bulletin: "Real Measure
of success is not whether you
have a problem to deal with but
whether it's -the same problem
you had last year."
In the mail: A request from
an out of towner for member-
ship in St. Joe Beach Booster's
Club. Thank you, sir, for think-
ing more of our fine beach than
we do! (No local requests yet
received!). This seems to be an
indicator that we have nany
great opportunities right around
us that we are unable to see. St.
Joe needs more industry and
more payroll. The business men
of this community could get it if
we wanted it enough to work
hard enough, long enough! Does
anyone agree? Or, are we just
plain stuck in the mud, sand, or
what have you? Did you know
that Gulf County has lost popu-
lation since 1960? Whassa mat-
ter? We're way out of step with
our own state! Just look at the
record! How much longer are we
going to sleep just too com-
fortable to be bothered? ? Some
of the honey stuff we hear is
plain sickening! How can we
point with pride to our great,
great achievements and lose our
shirts at the same time? We saw
a fine, wide awake aggresisve ef-
fort in an adjoining county just
today that gives this writer a
red face. Now, whose move is it?
We're heard it said that the busi-
ness men either make or break
a community! Just appears to me
it's no one's fault but our own.
This is one buck we'll be unable
to pass! We've formulated many
excellent alibies that only serve
to obstruct progress! Will some-
thing run over us if we continue
to sit in the same place? END.
Ordinarily this humble little
column stays in the area of mer-
chandising and light sort of chat-
ter. Can't explain how we got
started as we did this time, but
we are tempted at times to
launch out into deeper waters
with just neck sticking out! We
have been tagged as one of those
"reckless neck sticker outers"
at times and might as well have
a try now and then, anyway! We
happen to be one of those old
timers who rejects most of the
modern formulas for making
this world a free, happy, peace-
ful and plenteous land?
We do not believe these great
blessings are bought with dol-
lars or brought about by govern-
ment, laws and legislation, pow-
er politics and supreme court
decisions. No, no one else can
put freedom, happiness and
peace in our hearts but our own
selves. Seems that a utopian
dream is spreading its soothing
syrup over this land of ours! God
forbid that we should be doped
into this unreal and impractical
sort of thinking. Our own free-
dom from want will only come
about as it came to our forefa-
thers by hard work, long
hours, sweat and tears and
we use the words of the ancient
prophet again in closing: "What
is required of thee, 0 man, but
to do justice, love mercy and
walk humbly with thy God".

Flags everywhere on public
buildings in private homes -
pictures in stores or fluttering in
the soft summer breeze FLAGS
- AMERICAN flags.
Passers-by, on the busy street of
the city, hurry on their way, minds
intent on their own small affairs.
They look idly at the flags, but,
DO THEY REALLY SEE THEM?
That oblong piece of cloth with
its bright dyes, is the visible sym-
bol of America today an Amer-
ica more precious, more wonderful
than ever before, because the gifts
it has given us are threatened, as
never before with loss and de-
struction! It is the thrilling heart
of America the sign of our in-
heritance the presence of all
that we hold dear! The courage
and strength of the days when we
were beginning to be a nation.
These are the red of its stripes.
The high and stainless purity
of mind and motive the white-
ness of the souls of great men -
Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson,
and many others, who strove self-
lessly to hold high their beliefs
in the greatness of this nation,
and who dedicated their lives to
its service These are the white
The truth that will not stoop to
lie the integrity of the princi-
pals that underlie our common-
wealth, the unshakable faith and
trust in God, that has come down
to us from those long gone before
who have held high the light,
that we might walk safely -
these are the stars on the blue
And every one of these stars
shines with a new splendor of
meaning the symbol of a free
people, living their lives in a
blessing of freedom freedom
to worship Almighty God as they
choose freedom to work, to
laugh, to love and live God's
precious gift to man to be
guarded sacredly forever!
What is our Flag? It is the soul
of America and God help us
that it shall ever wave over our
land as such. -

"Older dogs usually grow
short-winded and lazy as fat
thickens around their hearts and
constricts the blood vessels," ac-
cording to Clarence C. Fawcett,
of the Purina Pet Care Center,
St. Louis, Mo. "This-usually re-
sults in a general slowdown of
body functions. Sluggishness can
lead to a number of diseases."
Fawcett says, however, that
the overweight dog should not
be put on a strict reducing diet.
The most effective way to put
your dog on a diet, pet nutrition-
ists note, is to cut down the total
amount of food but increase the
number of meals. Instead of a big
bowl of Dog Chow at one time,
dish out three-quarters or half
the amount in three or four serv-
ings. Snacks and scraps must be
eliminated no matter how per-

Living with a dog year after
year may make it difficult for a
master to know just when his pet
goes over the safe-weight limit.
If'there is any doubt see a veter-
inarian. He can tell for sure and,'
