It has come.
But, we knew it would four years ago.
Port St. Joe High Sch6ol has been removed from its status of
When everyone became convinced at the end of the last school
term, we- are glad to see that the School Board didn't panic and
spend a lot of money just maintaining accreditation, with a larger
building program in the planning.
Even the inspector, Dr. Vincent McGuire commended the Board
on not wasting the money with greater things in view.
And let us not panic to the point where ue get to believing that
this is the end of adequate education for students'in Port St. Joe High
School. From reports, Port St. Joe is in the majority of Florida
schools. By far the majority of the state schools face loss of this
particular accreditation status.
This isn't to say that we relish the situation. But we would
certainly favor the path we are taking rather than waste money pro-
viding facilities to maintain accreditation at this time and face the
very present possibility of having the measures go for naught.
Accreditation on the National scale is mostly for prestige any-
how. We still maintain our state accreditation.
We realize that some hardship will be placed on students -.eek-
ing to enter an ofit of state school. But we firmly believe the edu-
cational background of those seeking specialized education ut-
side the state of Florida will gain them -entrance to their ThQ en
school. If the criteria can't be met, chances are the student wNouldn't
be able to make the grade anyhow.
We're still a little burned at the reasons for dropping Port St.
Joe from the accreditation-' list, The only reasons that arouse
any sympathy from us are the facts of an inadequate library and
teachers teaching out of field-. Bat as long as the same set of r les
are applied to everyone, we eaaut, justifiably, get too upset;

With the all-but-formal announcements by Miami's Mayor Rob-
ert King High and Scott Kelly that they will seek to snatch the Gov-
ernor's chair, out from under Haydon Burns next Spring, another
name begins to loom on the horizon.
That of former Governor Leroy Collins.
A Miami newspaper reported Tuesday that it has it from a
good source that Collins plans to run.
And after reading this story it comes to us clear why the At-
lantic Weekly sent us,'aclipping of 'a story running, in: their pages

Guff to Get $58,719
In Government Money
Tallahassee The State Educa-
tion Department has announced a
county-by-county list of the federal
money available this year for spe-
cial education projects for children
of the poor..
SThe funds were allocated to each
county under a formula based on
the number of pupils from families
with less than $2,000 income a year.
State School Supt. Floyd Shris-
tian said that under federal rules
the money must be "aimed at elim-
inating deficiencies in the educa-
tion of disadvantaged children."
Gulf County will receive $58,719
in this program. Other area coun-
ties will receive monies as follows:
Calhoun, $115,943; Franklin, $73,-
062; Bay, $354,704.

the application to be returned.
Briefly, the loss of accreditation
means that graduates of 'Port St.
Joe High will find it more:difficult
to enter out of state !colleges. It
means that local students will prob-
ably be required to meet stiffer

McGuire closed his letter by
stating that he realized the school
officials were doing their utmost
in improving the school situation.
He said that it is his hope that the
people of Gulf County will give
the support necessary so that a
re-application for reaccreditation
can be made as early as next year.
Port St. Joe High School Princi-
pal, Wayne Saunders, received
word on.Monday of this week that
The -Florida Committee of the
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools is recommending that
Port St. Joe High be dropped.from
the National Accreditation list.
After four years of warnings
and probation, the High School has
been dropped from the list, along
with six other Florida schools. A
host of Florida schools were put
on the one-year probation list at
the meeting of the Florida Com-
In his letter of notification to
Saunders, Dr. Vincent McGuire,
chairman of the Florida Commit-
tee noted the following deficiencies
as the reasons for dropping the
High School from the accreditation
"The library is most inadequate
-both in size and in structure; the
guidance office is substandard-
both in location and in regard to
facilities; the cafeteria and kitchen
facilities are very inadequate; the
dressing facilities are below stan
dard; the drainage problem needs
to be solved and the problem of
teachers teaching out of field needs
to be eliminated."
Few Schools "Clear"'
According to an Associated Press
release yesterday, only 32 .schools
in the entire State of Florida re-
ceived a clear slate frm .the Com-
mittee. Of these, 13 were ,brand
new schools. *"
At'.the end of the comniittee
meeting, Dr. Vincent McGuire sta-
ted that generally,, the accredita-
tion picture for Florida high
schools is getting worse. He also
said that money is the basis of
the problem. Among specific areas
that are threatening accreditation
are over burdened teachers and
inadequate facilities in terms of
space. Port St. Joe was cited on
both these problems in its loss of
Other schools dropped along with
Port St. Joe were Brounsville Jun-
ior High, Pensacola; Jefferson

Frye said, "A deer's age cannot
be determined by the number of
points in his antlers after he passes
the spike stage. A buck normally
reaches physical maturity at 4 or
5 years of age and would normally
be expected to have the best de-
veloped antlers at the paw of his
vigor. Quality of habitat and abun-
danc of food can have a great deal
of bearing upon a deer's antlers.
For example, a 3 year old buck in
good range may have more points

year old buck living under less fav-

ticular, or rather tedious and la-

done correctly or otherwise poor
results will occur.

"COMMUNISM VS. THE FREE INDIVIDUAL"
.The November issue of The Reader's Digest carries an
impressive article under the title "Communism vs. the Free
Individual." Its author is Walter H. Judd, who has led a
varied career-he is a physician, was a: medical missionary
in China before World War II, and served in Congress for
many years. In late years, he has been lecturing and meet-
ing with students at colleges and universities. His article
takes the question-and-answer form, the questions being
those most frequently asked by his young audiences.
One is "How does communism differ from socialism!"
Here Dr. Judd makes the point that, while both are predi-
cated on the idea that government knows best what to do
with the earnings of the people, socialists mean to attain their
goals voluntarily, communists by compulsion. Then he says:
"In actual practice, however, the differences between social-
ism and communism tend to be minimized. The need to
achieve results has forced socialists more and more to resort
to stern controls which deprive the people of freedom, and
.communist governments lately have found it necessary to
permit some degree of personal incentive."
Another question is, "If communists believe so firmly in
a better life for all, why do they want to take over the world
by force?" Dr. Judd answers that communist dogma holds
that all that is evil has its roots in capitalism-therefore
capitalism must be totally destroyed the world over. The
communists are convinced that the end justifies any means
-as witness the ruthless extermination of seven million
kulaks, who were small capitalists in Russian eyes, under
A third question has to do with whether the communists
might be right about the basic nature of people. Dr. Judd
answers with an emphatic No, and bases it on the record of
communism. Despite Russia's vast resources and huge popu-
lation, all manner of shortages continue to exist. Her people,
coerced as they may be, simply will not do their best under
the system. In Dr. Judd's words, "This experience tends to
prove that self-reliance, initiative and competitiveness are
inborn characteristics of man."
He has no faith in the doctrine of "peaceful coexistence."
In dealing with this, he terms it "... a means for effecting
our destruction." As a tactical move communists may seem
to soften in attitude from time to time. But the goal of world
The most potent of his questions is probably this: "...
what can we do to prevent present tensions from developing
into World War III?" His answer is-that unless we are
willing to surrender and become communist slaves-we must
firmly resist any and all communist aggressions. He cites
instance after instance in the postwar period when we have
done thisL-and in every one of them the communists, despite
all their threats, backed down. These took place in Iran,
Greece, Berlin during the blockade and the airlift, and so on.
They include the establishment of NATO, the rearmament
of West Germany, and the Cuban missile crisis. He writes,
"If we mean to hold on to our liberties and save the world for
freedom, there is only one way to do it: stand firm and meet
all threats; not with counter threats or empty belligerence, s
but with steady and determined action in support of free

task of tree planting easier.

the planting trays so the seedlings
may be kept in water. This is not

the planting site is covered with Remember that these littletrees are
grass and brush, some clearing is
necessary. Burning of the brush is
sometimes desirable because it de-
stroys accumulated dry material,
thus reducing the chances of fire
later in the young plantation. It
also makes planting easier and re-
duces competition. Before you
burn, be sure you contact me or
your County Ranger and find out
the best and safest method to use.
Remember that state laws require
you to notify your neighbors be-

When you receive your seedlings,

three days. (Sand. Pine is the one
exceptionn to this rule. To get a

planted very soon.) To water seed-
ings, stand the bale on one end
nd drench with water until it runs
ut the other end. Then, lay the
)ale down with one end a little
higher than the other so the ex-
ess water may run out. Bales
should not be stacked up, but laid
ut only one bale deep. Also seed-

GOVERNOR HAYDON BURNS signs proclama-
tion designating the week of November 7-13 as
American Education Week in Florida. Mrs. Na-

Florida Congress of Parents and Teachers, and
Ed. Henderson, executive secretary of the Florida
Education Association, are shown with the Gov-
Visit Your Schools
Week Nov. 7-13
What is it?
American Education Week is an annual report time during
which the schools tell their owners, the general public, about
their purposes, methods, achievements, needs and problems.
How did it begin?
American Education Week grew out of the revelation, dur-
ing World War I, that a shocking percentage of the American
people were illiterate and physically unfit. Since 1921, the ob-
servance has been recognized by the National Education Asso-
ciation, the American Legion, the U.S. Office of Education and
the National Congress of Parents and Teacher.
What is the purpose of it?
American Education Week is designed to make every Am-
erican aware of the important role education plays in a democ-
racy and to. help him realize that good schools are his
How are these purposes achieved?
By encouraging the public to visit the schools, and by ex-
plaining the achievements and problems of the schools through
a variety of media, to those who do not visit the schools.
The theme for 1965's American Education Week is "Invest
in Learning". Each day of the week of November 7-13 will
emphasize one of these seven areas:
Sunday, November 7-strengthening moral and spiritual
Monday, November 8-cultivating the intellect
Tuesday, November 9-enhancing personal fulfillment
Wednesday, November 10-improving earning power
Thursday, November 11-developing good citizenship
Friday, November 12-enriching family and community life
