scouting, like all good programils
(Continued On Page 12)
the first card drawn will be declared the winner.
To enter the contest, you must go to the
individual businesses promoting the contest,
secure an entry blank, make your guess as to
the retail value of the prizes and drop your esti-
mate in a box found in all of the participating
businesses. Enter as many times as you wish.
There is no purchase necessary. Any merchant
donating prizes for the affair will be glad to tell
you the price of his item if you will go by and
ask him. The item in which strictly guess work
must be employed is the price of the car itself.

each store and participate in this big free Sum-
mer Jackpot Jamboree.

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY 'o
The time is coming around again when the Gulf County Com-
mission must begin to compile a budget for the coming fiscal year.
So this is the time to begin thinking about projects that the
citizens of the county would like included in the new budget.
Among those things we would like to see included in the bud-
get .-one item that we believe should have priority over most other
items is the providing of funds to enable Gulf County to become
a participating county in the Gulf Coast Junior College program.
Gulf saw last year in their library program entered into with
the Bay-Washington Library, that a little bit of money can go a long
way on a cooperative basis and provide a satisfactory service for the
people of the county.
Cooperation in Gulf Coast Junior College would serve several
purposes for Gulf County students. It would reduce tuition for
one thing. At present Gulf County students must pay $90.00 per
semester while Bay County students pay $75.00. Cooperation by
Gulf County would make Gulf students eligible to attend the school
.at the lower tuition rate. With 36 Gulf County students now attend-
:ing Gulf Coast this would amount to quite a savings. There are
'presently 65 Gulf County students attending Junior Colleges that
.would in all likelihood attend Gulf Coast if the tuition was at
S:the $75.00 level.
But reduced tuition is only part of the assets of being a part
of the college through financial cooperation. This would mean that
bus service could be inaugurated for Gulf County students. Gulf
County could place three men on the school advisory committee
and it would enable the College to set up special classes in Port St.
Joe as it did in Mexico Beach recently.
All in all, the advantages of cooperation, far outweigh the ex-
pense incurred. For this reason, we think the Commission should
give serious consideration to this matter at budget time,
The City Commission heard a
presentation for revaluation of all
property within 'the city limits for
taxing purposes; at their regular
meeting Tuesday night.
Jack C. Hamilton representing
Hunnicutt and Company, was giv-
ing the Commission the story on
revaluation. The'h unnicutt repre-
sentative had been asked to make
the presentation to the Board by
the Commissioners. The Hunnicutt
Company are professional valua-
tors and have performed this ser-
vice for various cities and coun-
ties throughout the state.
Hamilton said that in making a
valuation, several yardsticks ..are
used to arrive at a. value. In the
case of business property, such
things as revenue producing, loca-
tio'n, type construction, age and
demand are taken into considera-
tion. In the case of dwellings, ren-
tal revenue, replacement costs,
and condition are taken into consi-
deration in setting a valuation
The firm evaluates the worth of
a property. What percentage of the
value is placed' on the tax rolls is
up to the Board.
The Commission had asked the
Hunnicutt representative to appear
before them in thinking toward
bringing Port St. Joe's valuations
up to a more equitable basis.
Hamilton told the Board that
such procedure is desirable for a
city because revaluation serves to
equal the tax load, attract outside
capital, reduce millage and make
more money available to carry on
the city's business. He stressed the
Bands Will Present

fact that in the case of cities, the ing such valuations up to date and ty would soon perform the same
act of revaluation was more for said that this service would cost service and it would mean that the'
equalizing the tax load more so in the neighborhood of $1,000 to City of Port St. Joe would receive
than providing more tax revenue. $1,500 annually, this same type service twice.
Hamilton told the Board that it After Hamilton made his state- Mayor Hannon recommended

Port St. Joe High School to keep
the school from losing its ac-
credited standing with the South-

Included in the work will be
additional lunch room 'facilities,
additional shower and locker fa-
cilities, and additional library
The Gulf County Board of Pub-
lic Instruction made application
for the bond money to keep from
losing accreditation due to the
fact that the present local tax
structure for school purposes
will not produce enough revenue
to make money available to do
the necessary work.
Work on the new facilities
must be underway in September
when the Southern Association
inspects local schools. Superin-
tendent Marion Craig has said
that if the bonds are sold in June
without any trouble, Gulf County
should have the necessary con-
struction underway in time to
keep from losing accreditation.

E LAIRD, County Agent
Researchers at the Florida Agri-
cultural Experiment Station have
established that planted pines can
be fertilized on certain soils with
a resulting economic response.
Dr .William L. Pritchett, Soils
Techpologist at the Experiment Sta-
tion, who is in charge of the fer-
tilization experiments says, "Pines,
in the right areas, sometimes show
up to 100 percent growth increase
when properly fertilized."
Slash pines, according to Pritch-
ett, has a low nutrient requirement
and will grow on relatively infer-
tile soil. However, on some soils,
commercial fertilizers increase
growth. Because of the low nutrient
requirements for slash pine and
the relatively low returns from in-

A WORD OF THANKS
I would like to take this oppor-

staff for their care and kindness
during my long stay in the hos-

and every one who visited me, for
flowers and cards that were sent
and for all the prayers that were
offered in my behalf. May God
richly reward you for these acts
of kindness. And while I am con-
valescing your prayers and visits
will be highly appreciated.

Feted At Lunch
Attending a luncheon held in
Apalachicola at the Grill Saturday,
May 15th, for girls chosen to at-
tend Girls State from District Two
of the American Legion Auxiliary
Unit 116 of Port Saint Joe, to be
held in Tallahassee from June 11
to June 18, were Mrs. Ann Hart,
president of District Two; Mrs. Lois
Daniells, president of local Auxili-
ary; Mrs. Myrtice Smith, Girls State
chairman, and Miss Sherry White,
young lady chosen to represent the
local unit this year.
Several young ladies who attend-
ed Girls State in 1964 were on
hand to relate some of the experi-
ences, they had and to give the
girls going this year a preview of
what to expect when they arrive in
Tallahassee on June 11th.
Miss Rose Mary George of Apa-
lachicola was chosen to go to Girls
State in 1961 and was given the
honor to be selected to go to Girls
Nation also. Only two girls are se-
lected from each state to go to
Girls Nation each year so it is
quite an honor to be selected from
over 200 girls who go to Tallahas-
see each year representing Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary units from all
ove rthe state.
CARD OF THANKS
.Since it is impossible for us to
see each and every individual per-
sonally, we would like to take this
means of expressing our heartfelt
thanks and appreciation for the
many kind thoughts and deeds, for
the food, flowers and especially
your prayers during our time of

loving husband and father, due to

School Reqires Physical Education
The physical education program
of Port St. Joe High School in-
cludes grades 7-12. High school stu-
dents are required to have two
years of physical education and
grades 7-8 are required to partici-
pate. Students in grades 9-12 may
select which two years they desire
to take physical education.
All students in the physical edu-
cation classes participate in a
physical fitness program. Each stu-
dent is given an opportunity to de-
velop his mental and physical
qualities, but special emphasis is
placed' on the physical condition-
ing of each individual student.
Some personality traits the phys-
ical education department tries to
develop in each student .are:
leadership, sportsmanship, cooper-
ation, confidence, respect for au-
thority, respect for property, hon-
esty, loyalty, and obedience.

A new pamphlet called "Social
Security-What It Means for the
Parents of a Mentally Retarded
Child" is now available through the
local offices of the Social Security
Administration in your Community.
Most parents find comfort in the
knowledge that their children are
progressing steadily towards ma-
turity and economic self-reliance.
But, for the parent of a mentally
retarded child ,there is anxiety-
usually the worry which increases
with concern over the support and
care of the child and what would
happen if the parent should die.
For the parent of a mentally re-
tarded child, the Social Security
Law has special importance because
it can lead to monthly payments.
If you think someone in your
family may be eligible for social
security benefits as the son or
daughter of a person who has re-
tired, died or become disabled, get
in touch with your nearest social
security office by telephone, letter
or personal visit.
A parent, guardian, relative or
other authorized person may apply
for benefits on behalf of the men-
tally retarded person.
You can find the address of the
social security office at your post

rioces. The spoken word is lost; thi printed word remains.
In the weeks to come, Congress is to be a battleground
over what have come to be known as the "Right-to-Work"
laws on the books in nineteen of our fifty states, including
Florida. At issue is Section 14-B of the Taft-Hartley Act. It
reads: "Nothing in this act shall be construed as authorizing
the execution or application of agreement requiring member-
ship in a labor organization as a condition of employment in
any State or Territory in which such execution or applica-
tion is prohibited by state or territorial law."
It may be useful to put this whole issue in historical
perspective. What this language says is a simple reaffirma-
tion of a human right which is established as part of Western
Civilization. Right-to-Work was proclaimed by law in France
as early as 1791, and virtually every country in Europe ac-
tually used the term as a legal phrase in subsequent years.
After the Civil War in our own country, the Supreme
Court handed down Right-to-Work decisions invalidating laws
which denied those who had supported the Confederacy the
right to engage in their chosen professions
Fifty years ago, in 1915, Justice Hughes declared in
Truax v. Raich: "It requires no argument to show that the
right to work for a living in the common occupations of the
community is of the very essence of the personal freedom and
opportunity thatit was the purpose of the Amendment (Four-
teenth) to secure."
S At the end of World War II, Right-to-Work was invoked
against a California'state law which denied fishermen of
Japanese ancestry their Right-to-Work at their occupation
of fishing in coastal waters.
In modern times, Right-to-Work simply means that a
man is free to become an active, dues-paying union member
if he wishes, but that he cannot be forced to pay union dues
to an unwanted union bargaining agent in order to make a
living. Both historical precedent and the Constitution affirm
a free man's Right-to-Work.
It will be a sad day if pressure brought to bear by labor
union bosses can take away this right. Clearly the Congress
needs to hear from all kinds of voters on this issue.
Graduaton time will soon come again. Armies of young
people will venture out into what they hope will be an exciting
and receptive world.
It will, for a certainty, be a world which is vastly dif-
ferent from that their forebears knew. It is troubled, com-
plex, and restive. Its demands are enormous and implacable.
Change takes place at a dizzying pace. The challenges are
all but endless.
Yet, at the same time, it is a world of marvelous oppor-
tunity. New frontiers are constantly being opened-in indus-
try, business, government, medicine, the physical sciences.
In the 'space of a few years, more material progress has been
made than in preceding centuries. And the future will bring
more and greater wonders-all the way from homes of vir-
tually incredible comfort and convenience to the landing'of
human beings on the moon.
The world will welcome the young people who will soon
leave the schools and colleges. In return, it will ask much of
them. It will ,often, require skills that didn't even exist a
comparatively short time ago. Above all, it will demand a
willingness to keep on learning. For formal education is a
beginning and not an end in itself.
One more thing may be said. Surrounded as we are by
material abundance and achievement, it is easy to lose sight
of the old spiritual virtues. But, without them, the world is
essentially meaningless and empty. This is a truth that never
changes-and a truth that, one profoundly hopes, our young
people will not forget.

SAFE WHOLESOME FUiN OR

MEXICO BEACH, FLA.
From the Miami Herald
Issue of May 15, 1965
gave Big Ben Williams a need-
A "bill" to equip Rep. Wil-
liams-the self-styled retired
pauper who wants to split up
Dade County-with his own
state trooper and cruiser passed
the House unanimously.
The unofficial bill provided
that Williams also should have
a personal aide on all trips of
more than five miles.
The aide was designated to be
Col. Neil Kirkman, director of
the highway patrol.
Williams traditionally has used
highway patrol cruises for taxi
service about the state-until
Kirkman put in a stop order be-
cause Williams abused the privi-
lege by having the patrol drive
him from Miami to Tallahassee.
But there was a kicker in the,
Williams bill. It provided the
cost of the service be taken from
the race track funds of Williams'
home county, Gulf.
The Dade delegation immed-
iately asked for the right to co-;
sponsor the bill. House speaker
E. C. Rowell, however ,declared
it "such important legislation"
that all representatives should
Williams rocked back and
forth with a large smile on his
face as the ballot was cast.
