On Budget Requests
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
It is either apparent that the U.
S. Supreme Court does not remem-
ber its infamous decisions very
well or it is pathetic in that
they cannot even interpret their
decisions in the light in which they
give them or it is frightening
to assume that their decisions
mean vastly more than their words
Take the prayer and Bible read-
ing decision for instance.
The State Supreme Court of Flor-
ida has told Dade County that it is
legal for the Bible to be read and
the Lord's Prayer said in that coun-
ty's public school. Notice that the
State Court did not say "legal to
require Bible reading and the re-
peating of the Lord's prayer."
The U. S. Supreme Court says
that the Florida Supreme Court
must reconsider this decision.
And all the time the U. S. Su-
preme Court opined that it was
"contrary to the Constitution to
REQUIRE the reading of the Bible
and the repeating of the Lord's
Prayer in public schools".
Either the high court can't read
their own decisions, or their in-
tent of such an outrageous deci-
sion was such that it was shame-
fully hidden by placating words
to sooth the feathers of a public
that is losing its God-given and
much-fought-for rights in this her-
alded "land of .the free".
It would seem that now is the
time for the U. S. Congress to de-
mand that all candidates for the
U. S. Supreme Court judgeship
read the Bible from front to back
to better acquaint themselves with
the ultimate goal of Christianity,
which is to win the world for
Christ and assure mankind of a
future home in Heaven, rather
than to gain power over govern-
A church may have these ideas
of power yes. Christianity as
taught by the Bible n. fno.
And it hardly seems possible to
us that one can get anything from
the Bible but words of life and
not words of taking over govern-

Fine and Forfeiture Fund
Short On Income Sources
From preliminary indications by
comments made by the County
Commissioners last Tuesday the
new County budget will undergo
microscopic consideration before
it is approved later on in the sum-
mer. Also, indications point to a
budget that will have no frills or
will not offer funds for other than
needed operations of the county.
A good example of the think-
ing of the Board was brought out
in examining the County Judge's
budget. An item was included in
the budget for $750.00 for new
office equipment. A search of
past records showed that this
item had been included in the
budget each year, with no expen-
ditures being made. The County
Board will cut it out.- if the
Judge does not plan to buy any
office equipment. Other items of
other departments are getting
just as close scrutiny.
A good deal of head-scratching
went on among the Commission-
ers concerning the Fine and For-
feiture budget. This budget in-
cludes the moneys to operate the
Sheriff's Department and the of-
fice of the County Judge.
It will total some $80,240.00. This
is because the county must give
the Sheriff's Department wha 'it
asks for if no increase is requested.
By state law, the only way the
Sheriff's budget may be cut, unless
the Sheriff agrees to a cut, is'to
petition the State Comptroller.

in about $15,000. According -.the
records of last year, fine -hnd
costs will bring in approximately
another $15,000. The Sheriff and
the Judge turned back about $6,000.
This still leaves some $15,000 to
meet the budget, with no place to
get the funds from.
The County expects to make an
extended study of this situation,
especially of the Judge's fees col-
lected, of which he may spend as
he pleases without including such
income in his budget. The money
has been used in the past to pay
office help, according to informa-
tion told at the meeting Tuesday.
The County Health Department
asked for $35,968. This was a slight
increase over last year, and the
Board tentatively approved the
budget. The Health Department is

At High Sc
A girl's tennis class has been
formed as a part of the summer
recreation program at Port St. Joe
High School. The following girls
work on the fundamental skills ev-
ery morning: Pat White, Jo Anne
Fite, Martha Fite, Barbara Lewis,
Catherine Ramsey and Shelly
Ramsey. These girls are making
progress on the backhand and fore-
hand strokes. Close attention is al-
so given the correct technique in-
volved in the serve.
A tournament was held last
week to allow the students to test
their command of the fundamen-
tals and their progress in relation
to other members of the class.
Pat White was seeded number
one as this is her second year of
tennis. Jo Ann Fite was seeded
number two on the strength of
her work in the rlass. The sets
were reduced to two out of three
games due to the hot weather.
i Pat White won over Martha Fite
in a first round game (2-1), (0-2),
(2-0). Fite played well as she made
her more experienced opponent
work hard for the win.
Jo Ann Fite won from Catherine
Ramsey (1-2), (2-1), (2-0). Miss Ram-
sey started off as if to make sham-
bles of the seeding by winning the
first set. Fite rallied to take the
next two sets to advance to the
Pat White had her hands full in
her match with Barbara Lewis.
Lewis surprised her opponent and
the spectators present with fine
ground strokes to take the first set
(2-1). White showed the form ex-
pected of her in the next two sets
and won both of them by scores
of (2-0) and (2-1).
This set the stage for the cham-
pionship between Jo Anne Fite and
Pat White. The finalists each won
a set before it was decided to post-
pone the third and deciding set
until a later date due to the intense
heat. So, as of now Pat White and
Jo Ann Fite are co-champions of
the first tournament held by the
girl's tennis class.
All girls of high school age who
are interested in learning to play
tennis are invited to join the class.

CONG. BOB SIKES
Over 22 Years In Congress
Record of Service
Florida Congressman Bob Sikes
has established a new record for
length of service by a Floridian
serving in the United States House
The previous record for the state
was set in 1917 when the late
Stephen M. Sparkman of Tampa
retired from the House after 11-
terms and 22 years of service. This
record stood for 45-years, until
the current session when Sikes
began his twelfth term, having
now served more than 22-years in
Elected to Congress in 1940 at
the age of 33, when Florida had
only five Congressional seats, he
has seen the number of House
seats for the state climb to 12
today. He became Dean of the
Florida Delegation in 1951.
Only 29 of the 435 members of
the House of Representatives have
longer terms of service than Sikes.
Florida has had 53 men to serve
in the House of Representatives
since becoming a state in 1845
with only Rep. Sparkman having
served as long as 11-terms, al-
though two others served 10-terms
and another nine.
From 1845 to 1875 the state had
only one Representative, getting
the second seat in 1875 and a third
in 1907. In 1914, the delegation
increased to four and in 1933 to
five. A sixth member was added in
1943 and two additional seats
added in 1953. January 1963 saw
the state add four new seats for a
total of 12.
Sikes represents Florida's First
Congressional District comprising
eight northwest Florida counties-
Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa,
Walton, Holmes, Washington, Bay
and Gulf-formerly having repre-
sented 16 until the redistricting
which went into effect this year

It is' a good question, and
perhaps the recent action by
Rep. James Roosevelt will lead
to some answers.
For following testimony giv-
en by officers of some of the
najQr oil firms before the Fed-
eral Trade Commission, the
Congressman from California
very bluntly told them that by
their own statements they
stand accused of defrauding
the American consumer.
The transcripts of these hear-
ings revealed to the Congress-
man that the major oil com-
panies trade their own brands
of gasoline to other competi-
tive brands and also sell their
products to independent "off
brand" companies, and also
sell gas produced by idepeln.l

Other members of the House
from Florida and the years they
entered the Congress is as follows:
Charles E. Bennett and A. Sydney
Herlong, Jr., 1948; James A. Haley
and D. R. (Billy) Matthews, 1952;
Dante Fascell and William C. Cra-
mer, 1954; Paul Rogers, 1955; and
Claude Pepper, Don Fuqua, Edward
J. Gurney and Sam Gibbons, 1963.
Noting this new record of ser-
vice by a Floridian in the House
this week, House Speaker John Mc-
Cormack said that "The people of
his Congressional district and of
Florida are justified in feeling
proud of the great work perform-
ed by Congressman Sikes. He is
not only an outstanding legisla-
tor, but a great American."

same quality as the major
brand gas. Indeed, many of the
private brands get their gas
from the major companies and
all of the major companies ex-
change gasoline with other
companies, including the inde-
pendent refiners, and you will
find you can go into a major
brand station and get gasoline
that was refined by an inde-
pendent refiner and go to a
private brand and get gas re-
fined in a major oil refinery."
'It is the Congressman's posi-
tion that millions of consum-
ers, motivated by huge adver-
tising expenditures that stress
some special feature of a ma-
jor brand gasoline, are influ-
enced to pay a 2c per gallon
bonus to the detriment of the
In a scathing attack on the
major oil representatives in the
hearing room, the Congress-
man said, "The American peo-
ple cannot tolerate this. If what
your officers and counsel says
in these transcripts is true, it
is wrong, it is fraudulent. You
are taking money under false
pretenses..,you have entered
into a deliberate deception of

Born in Isabella, Georgia in 1906'
Sikes was raised on a farm near
Sylvester, Georgia. His father pass-
ed away when he was 10, leaving
he and his mother to make a living
on the family farm. The Congress-
man gives great credit to his
mother as an inspiration w i t h her
hard work and determination that
he should have an education.
He attended t he University of
Georgia where he received a Bachel-
or of Science D e g r ee in Agricul-
ture in 1927 and then went to the
University of Florida on a fellow-
ship where he earned his Masters
Degree in 1929.
In 1932 Sikes left the University
where he had been working to go
to Okaloosa County where he had
purchased the Valpariso Star, a
weekly newspaper, to begin a new
career. Later he purchased the
Okaloosa News-Journal and Oka-
Loosa Messenger at Chrestview,
Consolidating the papers into the
Okaloosa News-Journal by 1940.
His Newspaper was noted for its
hard hitting progressive policies.
Sikes served a s president of t h e
Florida Press Association in 1937.
His entrance into elective office
came in 1936 when he was elected
to the Florida House of Represen-
tatives form Okaloosa County, and
was re-elected to a second term,
serving in t h.e 1937 and 1939 ses-
When Congressman Mi 11 ard
Caldwell announced that he would
not seek re-alection, Sikes sought
the seat in a district which stretch-
ed from Escambia to Jefferson cou-
nties and was elected. He has been
re-elected in the eleven elections
since that time.
In the Congress, he served for
two years on the Foreign Affairs
Committee and then six on Armed
Services Committee before gaining
a seat on the powerful Appropria-
tions Committee, through which all
b ill s that require appropriations
must pass. It is doubly important
since under the Constitution, tax
and appropriations' bills must ori-
ginate in the House.
Perhaps his major field of intr-
est has been the military prepared-
ness of this nation, and i n this
field h e h a s written a large num-
ber of bills to improve the defence
posture of t h e United States. A
host of m a j o r forestry bills have
been authored by Sikes along with
national recreational bills. Many
social security measures were
authored by Sikes.
Waterways have been another
prime interest, the Congressman
believing that where waterways
are improved, industry and trade
are stimulated and these improve-
ments thus pay for themselves
commercially. For the past four
years, he has served as vice-presi-
dent of the National Rivers and
Sikes noted this week that the
Florida delegation consistently
works together for projects that
will benefit Florida, and that he
has been proud to play a part in
these programs. He is particularly
. interested in seeing the Cross Flor-i

The present exemption to farm-

A three per cent tax, subject to
pro-ration based on mileage on
all vehicles and parts thereof used
in Florida by instate common car-
riers, and subject to a $5,000 limi-
tation, was approved. It applies to
airlines, railroads and trucking con-
cerns. All other purchases, how-
ever, are fully taxable.
A five per cent tax was placed
at the wholesale level on all fish-
ing, hunting, camping, swimming
and diving equipment, unless speci-
fically exempted. This means that
retail dealers who cannot show the
tax has been paid to a registered
dealer are required to accrue the
tax at retailer's cost and pay it di-
rectly to the state.
Interstate sales of these items
by Florida wholesalers for redis-
tribution or retail sale in other
states are not taxable to Florida
under this provision. Deliveries
must be by interstate common car-
riers, the U. S. mails or by the in-
terstate dealer, who must provide
proof of delivery outside this state.
Retail store operators face a stif-
fer penalty if they are delinquent
in obtaining licenses. The Revenue
Commission is authorized to col-
lect in addition to the amount of
tax due, a penalty of two dollars
and fifty cents for the period of
delinquency 'occurring in the first
three months of the license year,
and an additional two dollars and
fifty cents for each additional
three months period, or fraction,
of delinquency thereafter.
The Legislature extended the
period to file application for a re-
fund fro ml8 months to three years
from the date the payment is made
into the state treasury.

At this time we don't know
what this column will have to
say. Now, isn't this an unusual
way to write a letter, column or
what have you? ?
Maybe we'd better do some-
thing about something wherewe
have some idea where to start!
The first thought that occurs
to us is the fact that grandmas
and grandpas are on the increase
at Boyles Gladys and Char-
lie Gill are the young, surprised
and proud grandparents of a
lovely, July the 8th granddaugh-
ter (Yes, surprised! the
young lady made her debut a-
bout two months earlier than ex-
pected! Anxious to explore the
wonders of this big world) Now,
when you stop to think about it,
this is a big and wonderful
world It'll take years to
do a good job of seeing and be-
holding its marvelous wonders
and beauty. Frankly, we're in-
clined to commend the new
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph
Swatts, Jr., for her iniative and
foresight. Truly, it's a great time
to be alive and it's regrettable
that we lack the time, energy
and money to see all the gran-
deurs of God's glorious creation!
We're grateful, however, to live
in this part of the world. Yes,
we live in the best country in
the world even though we're
having many troubles, difficul-
ties and human upheavals. Now,
these unfavorable things are
Our opinion is that the Great
Creator didn't plan it that way.
We can imagine that He looks
on His creation now and sadly
repeats the words of Jesus in
one of His earthly experiences:
"Oh, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, kill-
ing the prophets and stoning
those who are sent to you! How
often would I have gathered
your children together as a hen
gathers her brood under her
wings, and you would not!"
Yes, we can believe He's still
waiting for His children to ac-
cept and properly use the un-
countable blessings available to
those who are willing to simply
TRUST and OBEY! Maybe a
good way to start could be:
"Love your enemies, do good to
those who despitefully use you."
Yes, LOVE, the all powerful, re-
deeming, healing word that
could be the answer to ALL OF
OUR PROBLEMS! May we
choose to use this cure more .
and the quack cures of man less!

added. First, make sure your em-
ployer has your name and account
number exactly as they are shown
on your Social Security card. Sec-
ond, if you have lost your Social
Security card, don't rely on your
memory for the number. Get a dup-
licate card. It's easy to make a mis-
take in a number as long as your
Social Security number. Such a
mistake can be costly to you and
your family when you retire, or if
you become disabled and to your
family at your death.
Remember, you pay for your So-
cial Security, so be sure you get
credit for all your earnings, Carey
concluded. You can be sure if you'll
follow these suggestions. Your
nearest Social Security office can
help you check your account and
can also give more detailed infor-
roation on the Social Security Pro-
gram. Check with them and be sure
that you get proper credit on your
