COURT, GULF COUNTY,
Roses and Wives,-Both Take Lots of
Loving Care for Best Results
By HERVEY SHARPE, Editor ity and diseases.
Florida Agricultural Extension Except for the most dedicated
Service hobbyist, the modern hybrid roses
ar- the hardest to grow.
Growing roses is like keeping
your wife-mate happy-there are
many thorny problems involved.
However, both are prestige pro-
jects. If you excel you can display
both of these beauties with pride.
Solve your domestic problems
first, because you can't buy tran-
quility but you can buy roses.
You may purchase rose bushes
in three forms. These are bare
roots, in contaniers or burlap wrap-
ped. The latter is called infant
style because of the triangle burlap
and damp bottom.
For the procrastinator, container-
grown roses can be planted later,
but will cost a fancy price.
Varieties to plant can be a prob-
lem. Old-fashioned favorites have
advantages over the newcomers.
These include such roses as Louis
Phillippe, Minnie Francis, Marie
Van Houtte and Safrano. Often
they thrive where the modern hy-
brids succumb to the deep South's
tropical temperatures, high humid-
Plant roses for cut flowers in a
separate cutting garden, because
they're far from handsome if prun-
.ed properly, covered most of the
time with protective fungicides and
stripped of flower buds daily.
Select a site in a sunny location.
In the event the bed is located near
large plants, protect the rose
bushes from marauding roots with
a sheet of metal roofing buried ver-
tically along the side of the bed.
Prepare the planting gsite prior
to securing the rose bushes. If the
soil is loose, light and sandy, re-
move it to p depth of 15 inches and
replace with compost of rotted
laeves, manure and rich hammock
soil. For best growth, be sure the
replaced material is quite acid.
Many sandy soils in south Florida
contain too much lime for the best
rose production ,say University of

Nudists Have Their Day Before
The U. S. Supreme Court
A Fantasy By Rev. John Doran
Washington, June 4, 1964-The United States Supreme
Court today handed down a decision in favor of the Terres-
trial Association of Nudists (T.A.N.) in the most recent of
the school cases to come before the Court.
The Court ruled that all children of the United States
would have to come nude to school henceforward because
the wearing of clothes was embarrassing to the children of
This case originated in the Sunnyside School District
where the school board ruled against the Nudists in their
attempt to enforce nudism on all the children. Parents of
Johnny Brown brought suit against the board, charging that
the board was infringing on their constitutional rights first
ini' insisting that- their children wear clothes to school and
secondly in not ordering that all other children come to school
nude-also on the grounds that it would be embarrassing
to the children, and discriminatory against them, to fail to
enforce a uniformity of nudity in the school district.
Justice Green of the Supreme Court in a lengthy major-
ity opinion maintained that, whereas we were a Christian
nation, we were not to use the power of the government to
enforce the ideas of the majority that clothes are a part of
a civilized Christian culture. He stated that the government
would be infringing upon the wall of separation of church
and state iffit insisted upon this basis He stated that many
eminent dermatologists hold that the rays of the sun and
the wafting of the wind are beneficial to growing bodies.
Justice Glennon in a separate opinion pointed out that
to excuse the nudist children from wearing clothes and per-
mit the other children to wear clothes would "subject them
to a cruel delimma because of an understandable re-
luctance to be stigmatized as nudists." The Justice'made
clear that the only way in which the rights of this minority
could be protected by the laws of our land was to insist that
the majority conform to the standard of nudism. The Justice
in a bit of whimsicality expressed the hope that no nudist
would ever be appointed to the Supreme Court and insist
upon the same decision being applied there.
In a strongly worded minority opinion Justice Pottery
warned that the protection of the rights of the minority did
not in American jurisprudence automatically negate the
rights of the majority, and insisted that the removal of the
clothes of the children in the majority was as much an inva-
sion of their rights' as the putting of clothes upon the mi-
Experts on the subject of Supreme Court Decisions had
long predicted that this case would be decided in favor of
T.A.N. They had pointed out that the 1963 decision in
rgeard to Bible reading and the Lord's Prayer case had been
based upon the fact that the minority not only must be pro-
tected from the wishes of the majority, but that the majority
cannot be allowed to pray or study the Bible in a school if
the minority objects. These experts said that the court in
recent years has consistently ruled against the principle that
a consensus of the American people as to the value of a
custom cannot establish this custom if there are any who
object; and hence that the rather long custom of the Ameri-
can people of dressing their children for school could not,
since it was a Christian custom, be maintained in the face of
those who objected to it on religious grounds.
Another Kind of Freedom
Most men take pride in having their sons follow in
their footsteps. This may be good for their ego but it
may not be good for their sons'. Joshua Loth Liebman, the
psychologist, wrote: "We display true love when we cease
to demand that our loved ones become revised editions of our-
selves." How much unhappiness and heartache could be
avoided if more parents realized this!
One of the human rights with which every person is
endowed is the right to be different-even from members of
his own family. To deny this right is selfishness, not love.
We could show our love-and understanding-to greater
profit if we looked for, and encouraged, the special talents
and tastes in our children instead of consciously, or uncon-
sciously, pressuring them to be "like us." We might well
borrow from the wisdom of Goethe's mother. Early in life
she decided to concentrate her interest on the good qualities
of her friends and relatives, and skip over the qualities that
"I always seek the good in people," she said, "and leave
the bad to Him who made mankind and knows how to round
off the corners."
And herein, one might find the germ of an idea for a
useable, sensible New Year's Resolution.
IAliens In U. S. Must Report'
To INS In January
December 27, 1963, District Di-
rector Edward P. Ahrens of the Im-
migration and Naturalization Ser-
vice stated that the annual alien
address report program usually
causes a sharp rise in the number
of applications for naturalization.
The law requires all aliens in the
United States, with few exceptions,
to report their addresses each Jan-
uary. Throughout the United States
almost thirty percent more appli-
cations for naturalization are re-
ceived during the months of Jan-
uary, February and March than are
received during other months. Mr.
Ahens attributes this sudden rise
to the Alien Address Report Pro-
Aliens not required to make this'
report are diplomats, those accre-
dited to certain international
organizations and those who have
entered temporary as agricultural
Forms for making the reports
will be available to aliens at all
Post Offices of the Immigration
and Naturalization Service during
the month of January. Mr. Ahrens
indicated the aliens desiring infor-
mation concerning naturalization
or similar matters should obtain
the forms at an office of the Immi-
gration and Naturalization Service
where personnel trained in these
fields will be available to answer
SS Searching For Lax
Employers of Domestics
With the mailing of several hun-
dred letters to housewives in the
Panhandle area, the Panama City
Social Security district office to-
day began an all-out search for de-
linquent employers of household
The idea behind this effort is to
inform every housewife in the area
abuot her responsibility for report-
ing Social Security taxes on the
wages paid to maids, cleaning wo-
men, ironers, and other domestic
Last year the Social Security
folks found 21,000 American home-
makers who were not .making pro-
per returnsfor their employees, ac-
cording to John- V. Carey, District
Manager. "Most of these 'delin-
quents' were exposed when their
former employees made requests
for retirement payments," Mr. Car-
ey said. He explained that in such
cases the employer is liable for
suchboth shares of the taxes that
have not been paid over past years.
The tax and penalties that are ex-
acted for not reporting at the pro-
per -time can be sizeable amounts.
Carey suggested that rather than
owe large amounts at a later time,
local housewives learn whether
Social Security taxes are due on
wages now being immediately to
make proper reports for domestic
If a housewife employee is paid
$50 or more in a calendar quarter,
Social Security taxes must be re-
ported whether the employee want-
s to be under Social Security or
not, according to Carey. He urged
any housewife in the area who
needs advice this matter or help in
making proper returns to call or
visit the Panama City Social Se-
curity District Office, 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, telephone 763-5331.

Florida Suffering Shortage of Banking
Establishments, Says "Florida Trend"
Florida simply is not getting the
baLking service it deserves by ev-
ery facet of financial and popula-
tion growth. This fact has been
pointed out in numerous and leng-
thy articles in FLORIDA TREND
magazine. Now a University of
Florida survey emphasizes many of
the statistical shortcomings of
Florida banking which the Florida
industrial magazine has previously
To start with, Florida has about
half as many banking offices as it
needs by national standards. Na-
tionwide there is one banking of-
fice for every 7,220 people in
Florida there is one banking of-
fice for every 14,900 people, and in
some isolated metropolitan areas
the number of persons per bank-
ing facility exceeds 25,000. All of
these statistics are according to
The magazine goes on to contend
that apparently the conservative
number of banks in Florida also
breeds a tendency among Florida
bankers to lend conservatively.
There is a rather unique tendency
among Florida bankers to hedge
on loans and put the difference in
United States or municipal securi-
ties. The average Florida banks put
about 39 per cent of its assets on
loans while on a national level the
average is 47 per cent. On the sur-
face this might seem a rather insig-
nificant difference, but on deposit
balance alone, estimated at $5.8
billion in Florida, this means that
nearly $500 million additional
money would be available for loan
if Florida shared the national av-
erage. Probably one of the impor-
tant reasons it is not being loaned
is that there are not enough bank-
ing outlets and utilized banking
know-how in Florida to intelligent-
ly lend it.
The problem with a multiplicity
of individual small home-grown
bafks is that there simply isn't
enough money or talent to run
them efficiently or profitably. Mo-
dern banking is a multi-service bus-
iness. Every banking day brings
an avalanche of new questions and
problems. Branch bankers have a
battery of experts behind them .
small independent bankers fre-
quently have to throw up their
hands. This is the essential prob-
lem in a nutshell.
The magazine article says that
some of the greatest opposition
against branch banking comes from
banks in rural Florida counties.
These banks aren't really so close-
ly concerned in the problem as
city ad suburban banks. Actually
the impetus for branching will
probably ignite where it is most
needed in sprawling new met-
ropolitan areas, particularly in
mushrooming new suburbs. It is
not much of a secret either that
many suburban banks chartered in
recent months have been spawned
with a plan that includes merging
or selling to a larger downtown
bank when the branch law comes.
The best banking minds in Flor-,
ida as a whole agree that a branch
banking law of some form. is over-
due in Florida. They see many
new banking starts as examples of-
inferior banking service run by
staffs with a shortage of banking
know-how. There is some real con-
cern that the lack of a more lib-
eral banking policy in Florida has
become quite dangerous to the
state's financial mechanism and
that it may have some serious re-
percussions unless corrected soon.
