By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
This piece truly deserves the headlines in this week's issue.
But since we firmly believe that the reason for this piece of news
being perpetrated was so that the perpetrator could get his name
in the headlines, we will resist the urge.
But, nevertheless, we cannot let such an event as preacher
Dave Neese shaving off his beard and his mustache, for
-the first time in eight years, go unnoticed And it was noticed!
Dave once made the statement that he had the mustache because
his wife insisted on it. After seeing him without it, we are inclined
to see WHY she insisted on it. For you who have a hard time
recognizing the Reverend without his face afire, he still has red
hair (cut close) and he will be the redhead who comes skulking to
your house begging you for your toad frogs to feed to his pet snake.
But don't get the idea that because preacher Dave grows flowing
mustaches and beards and keeps pet snakes and begs toad
frogs, that he is a little odd because he isn't. He's perfectly
normal for a man who grows mustaches, beards, keeps pet
snakes and begs toad frogs.
This issue is coming out early (we hope) and may not have
all the features you would expect. But we promise to make it up
next week. As a for instance, we don't know at this writing whether
we will have any pictures this week or not. We sent the pictures
to the engravers Monday. We checked by phone Monday afternoon
and they had not arrived, but had gone on to Mobile via bus. We got
busy and scrounged up another copy of most of the pictures and
sent a man over with them Monday night. If they got there in time
to be made, you will see them in this week's paper otherwise
,you will see great gobs of white space.
That Federal Judge in Jacksonville, Bryan Simpson, has been
in Government service too long. He is beginning to think like
the Federal Government. (We use the word "think" for want of a
better one). This Federal Judge with the Federal mind has gone
off orr a tangent of telling the Governor of the State of Florida
that he can't act to prevent a riot. Does the Government want
Now a little tidbit has come before Judge Simpson that we
are anxious to see the outcome of. The Negro attorney, Earl John-
son has asked for the issuance of an order to prohibit anti-dem-
onstrators from demonstrating. Now how, under the name of
heaven can such an order be passed on anti-demonstrators without
affecting demonstrators in like manner?
But then, does any of this demonstration and anti-demonstration
mess make sense? If folks get along together, as most of the rank
and file white and colored citizens do can't they shake hands
with one another in public or private continue to be friends
and stay away from those who dislike either race?
That's what we intend to do Federal government or no.

FLORIDA GARDEN NOTES
Gardening In July Can Be Frustrating
Task. And Mighty Hot, Too!
Gardening in July is as frustrat-
ing as the efforts of a June bride
trying to cook her first dinner for
the in-laws. Both are tough jobs.
It is human nature for the bride
to beg off, but nature won't listen
to a human begging so July brings
many woes to the gardener.
The list is long. Sultry hot'weat-
her is at the top. Trimming hed-
ges, mowing lawns and pulling
weeds are the main tasks that take
the strach out of a gardener's in-
The avid gardener gets the worst
tasks done while the neighbors are
still snoozing. So, if you are an
early riser you are in luck as most
of the brow-sweating tasks can be
complteed in the dewy coll of the
However, be selective with the
sunrise work. Do the jobs thai
make little noise. Awaking the nei
ghbors with a lawn mower per
haps won't get you booted out of
the community, but tongue lash
ings later in the day will make you
feel like a heel.
Mulching shrubs in the early
morning is a nearly soundless tack
if you grease the trash cart wheels
The neighbors will stay in their
beds and the plants will enjoy beds
blanketed with organic trash.

caused by pulling weeds and furn-
ish plants with food.
Trimming shrubs is like training
the diaper clan. Both need con-
stant attention until they form
correct habits. So, trim ornamen-
tals just as soon as fresh, tender
growth shoots out of place. Con-
stant shearing prevents later but-
chering, which isn't good for any

ellia cuttings since the spring flush

Friday held for their mother, Mrs.
Ethyl Barbee Richards, who passed
away Wednesday, June 24 after a
I about six weeks. But under con-
stant mist, rooting time will be
shortened by two weeks.
Tip cuttings from oleander and
hibiscus will root in a few weeks
under constant mist. If you don't
make too many daily inspections,
you'll get a real surprise in three
weeks after cuttings are placed in
the propagation bed. With almost
no luck at all, generous growth of
large white roots will form at the
base end of each cutting.
Azaleas are almost as easy to
root, but take a bit longer to send
-'-t small, hair-like feeders from
the buried part of the cutting.
Regardless of how you root cut-
tings, the new plants should be
givan extra care during their sea-
son of growth. Don't take cuttings
from their shady, moist home and
place them directly in the hot
sun, because plants blister as easily
Planting new cuttings in peat
pots is an easy way to get tender
cuttings gradually used to full
sun. A week or so in half shade,
then 3/4 sun is all it takes to pre-
]:are the plants for a happy life
i' full sun.
Peat pots are quite convenient.
Plant pot and all and the cutting
will never feel the shock of trans-
planting. The peat pot will decom-
pose and form plant food in a few
After setting the plants, protect
them from careless footprints of
bands of cops-n-robbers, pesty cats
and stray dogs. Strong words of-
ten prevent trampling by the
small fry, but animals don't seem
to get the message so easily.
If you don't like to mar the beau-
ty of the garden with unsightly
string fences, then try lengths of
thorny briar stems. It is a sure bet
that the animals will steer clear of
a bed of prickles.

The Free Man Is A Religious Man. .
And HA Will Be Tested From Now On!
In view of happenings all over our nation, we would
harbor the opinion that the Fourth of July has come around
just in the nick of time.
We need a reminder right about now, that this nation
was founded to guarantee the rights of men all men .
the majority, as well as the minority.
And, too, it reminds us that our Constitution has stood
for many years as the bulwark of freedom for ALL men.
Our Constitution has drawn many men to our shores, by its
language alone perfectly clear in its meaning to plain,
straight-thinking men, but evidently a thing to be stretched
in meaning and words put in the mouths of the framers of
the Constitution by so-called deep thinking men.
Regardless of what is going on in our nation today to
erode the freedoms of ALL men (since the happenings of
today will apply to ALL men and not just the white man)
our Constitution, we believe, will weather the present storm
and will continue to guide this nation as the "land of the
free, and the home of the brave".
It takes a brave man to stand up for what this nation
stands for in its Constitution. We believe this is the cause
of the recent man-handling of the Constitution. .. to make
it easier for those not so brave to live here in a state of le-
thargy. Those with no fight in them to make themselves a
better life, would have the fighting claws removed from the
rest of us, so that all of us will exist in a state of lethargy.
Make no mistake about it, tampering with the Constitu-
tion as it is being tampered with removes rights from every-
one it does not grant additional rights to anyone.
The "Spirit of '76" still exists in the hearts and souls
of our countrymen, for the most part. We are still a nation
founded under the principals of God, for the most part. But
the happenings of the day is but another test of our deter-
mination to maintain this as a nation of the free founded
It takes a firm and determined man to stand for the
freedom of all.
It takes, a firm and determined man to stand for the
teachings of God and Jesus Christ.
Our nation has remained free because the firm and de-
termined man the world over believes in these two concepts.
As long as America has this type of man in the majority, it
will remain free.
It is harder and harder for men to stand up for Christ
in America. By retrospect, it is becoming harder and harder
for America to remain free. Our liberties are being tested
more and more.
But as long as the "Spirit of '76" pervades our atmos-
phere and thinking each July 4, and as long as free men
can think for themselves and worship God in peace, we
will remain a free nation.
More Check Than Balance
It is difficult to decide whether the august Supreme
Court of the-United States, beyond which, appeals can only
be made to God, (of Whom, it seems not to approve), does
more damage to the nation it is supposed to protect when
it sticks its nose into police court matters such as the tres-
pass convictions of Maryland sit-in demonstrators, or when
it decides that Communists should be as free to travel as
In the Maryland sit-in case, the High Court might well
have ruled on the Constitutional question of whether the
state could properly support the discriminatory acts of a
businessman. But it didn't. It ducked this issue to quibble
about a state law.
In ruling that members of the US Communist Party have
as much right to travel as anybody, the Court lopped an arm
off of the 1950 Internal Security Act which had, up to now,
prohibited these characters from getting passports to travel
outside of the Western Hemisphere or to Cuba. The Court
objected to the Government's "presumption" that the Com-
mies, if given passports would use them against the interests
of the U.S. Whence it would seem no one has yet told six
of the Justices what Communism is about.
It might be noted for what comfort it offers that three
Justices dissented in each of these cases. Justice Black,
speaking for the dissenters in the sit-in case declared that
trespass laws "have been, and doubtless still are, important
features of any government dedicated as this country is to
a rule of law."
In the travel case, Justice Tom Clark termed some of

It's on the topless bathing suit.
Here is the problem.
The style now is the topless

that the next style will be a bot-

For folks who love blueberries and who doesn't- it's perfectly
all rji-ht if they're served morning, noon and night, no matter
what the form, so long as there are blueberries in abundance!
Most popular on our list is this Blueberry Torte, made with a roll
of refrigerated butterscotch nut cookies that are ready for slicing
and baking, and canned blueberry pie filling. The canned filling
is a staple item we'd hate to be without, for here are berries at
their best, picked at their peak, sorted and canned ready to flavor
a myriad of desserts. The cookie crust layers for this torte are
rich and crisp, made by arranging the sliced cookie dough side-
by-side in cake pans. It's a dessert that is quite easy to prepare
and certain to be enjoyed. The Cream Cheese Topping adds a
party look to the torte, or use a crown ef weetened whipped cream
if you prefer.
BLUEBERRY COOKIE TORTE
1 roll refrigerated butterscotch nut cookies
1 can (2 cups) blueberry pie filling
Cut cookie dough into slices 4-inch thick. Place cookie slices in the bot.
tom of two 9-inch round cake pans that have been greased, lined with
wax paper, greased and floured. Bake at 3500 for 15 to 20 minutes, until
light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool.
Spoon '/2 can pie filling over bottom cookie layer. Top with second layer
and remainder of filling. Spoon Cream Cheese Topping around outer
edge of blueberry fillinS. Chill. Serves 6 to 8.
CREAM CHEESE TOPPING
Blend 3/4 cup cream, 3-oz. package softened& cream cheese and 2 table.
spoons powdered sugar; beat until firm. Fold.in 1 teaspoon grated lemo*

New Fishing Licenses
Are Now Necessary
will find that Florida's new fresh
water sport fishing rules and reg-
ulations have a new look and pro-
vide fishing information as well as
fishing regulations. The new reg-
ulations are available at the offices
of all County Judges and their au-
thorized fishing license agents.
According to A. D. Aldrich, di-
rector, Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, the new fishing reg-
ulations were adapted from the
Florida Wildlife Magazine and in-
clude color illustrations and infor-
mation on the more popular fresh
water game fish, as well as sections
on favorite fishing spots, how to
catch 'em, the cost of fishing and
fish management area regulations.
The middle section of the new
sixteen page publication contains
a summary of fresh water fishing
regulations and may be removed
by the fisherman who desires a
compact copy of regulations for
his tackle box or pocket.
Aldrich reminded fisherman that
they may now obtain the new 1964-
65 fishing license at offices of all
County Judges and license agents.
The deadline for obtaining the new
license is midnight, June 30. Ef-
fective July 1, fishing in fresh wat-

S. S. Account
More than a few people, work-
ers and their families, have lost
Social Security benefits because
they failed to request a free state-
ment of their Social Security rec-
ords, John V. Carey, District Man-
ager of the Panama City Social Se-
curity Office, said this week. In-
dividuals have a responsibility
through their working years to see
that they are receiving Social Se-
curity credits for their earnings.
Employers of one or more work-
ers are liable for the tax reports,
but it is up to the worker to check
on his own account.
Every worker, whether salaried
or self-employed, should obtain a
statement of his Social Security
acocunt at least once every three
years, Carey added. Mistakes in
the account or failure by an em-
ployer to report a worker's earn-
ings can be corrected if the mat-
ter is promptly brought to the at-
tention of the Social Security Ad-
ministration. Many claims for re-
tirement, disability or survivor
benefits under Social Security
must be disallowed because mis-
takes were not called to our at-
tention until the claim for bene-
fits was filed.

In Nation With
JACKSONVILLE Florida has
had 102 deaths from tentanus be-
tween 1958 and 1962, making it
second to Texas' 259, the State
Board of Health said today.
Oliver H. Boorde, director of the
board's Division of Public Health
Statistics, said there were 1,281
deaths reported from tentanus a-
cross the nation during the five-
year period for a rate per 100,000
population of 0.1. Florida was tied
with Georgia for fifth place with
a rate of 0.4 being preceded by Ar-
kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and
Florida has later figures for the
state 1959-63, during which
there were 33 deaths among whites
61 among nonwhites. Male deaths
outnumbered female deaths three
Age groups most affected during
the 1959-63 period were the four
years and under and the 45 and
older. These two groups accounted
for 74 per cent of all deaths and
64 per cent of all cases.
Boorde said this possibly indi-
cates that a substantial number of
children have not been immunized
against tetanus and that adults
have not kept up the proper im-
munization for themselves. "In
addition," he said, "the higher rat-
ing of deaths in these groups are
consistent with the generally low-
er resistance of the very young
and the aged against most dis-
Boorde said there were 33 coun-
ties in the past five years which
had at least one tetanus death.
Tetanus (lockjaw) is often fatal.
The germ lives in soil and street
dust and may be especially preva-
lent where there are domestic an-
imals, especially horses. Man also
is a source of infection. The dis-
ease is world-wide but is relative-
ly uncommon. The germ can enter
the body through any wound.
