The Board is planning to con-
struct new high and junior high

So far, no answer.
But maybe the thought of mother being a car isn't too far

He later served the Riverside Park

Are Reduced by 7%
Effective January 1, there was a
seven per cent reduction in St. Jos-

pany bills, according to B. A. Pridg-

The reduction was realized by a
drop in the federal excise tax on
telephone bills from ten per cent
to thee per cent. The tax will be
reduced further in subsequent
years until it is eliminated entirely
"We estimate that this tax re-
duction will mean a saving of ap-
proximately $69,000.00 per year to
our customers," says Mr. Pridgeon.
"However, perhaps more important
than the money saved, is the fact

pealed. It certainly exemplifies

Health insurance under Social
Security for people 65 and ovei
does not go into effect until July 1,
1966. Neither the hospital nor the
medical insurance plant in the
Medicare program will start before
that date. "To be eligible for Medi-
care next July, a person must sign
up by March 31, 1966," John V.
Carey, Social Security District Man-
ager in Panama City, stressed re-
Any person eligible for Medicaie
should not drop or. cancel' any pri-
vate health insurance he now' has
simply- because of the new Medi-
care law, Carey cautioned. He point-
ed out that premature cancellation
of private insurance could leave a
person without any protection at
all until theJuly 1, 1966, date.
Carey added that those covered
under the medical insurance plan
will begin their $3.00 monthly pay-
ments in July 1966, the same time
their protection begins. Hospital
insurance will cost nothing.

we 'think is whipping itself into pretty good shape, if Con

We read where the employable labor force of the U, S
now, out of work is now less than two per cent. There is evei
talk of a labor shortage this year. This unemployed rate is
the lowest in many, many years.
We might bring to your attention that this situation
came into being before the President's anti-poverty programs
could get into action.
But the wings of this short-lived national prosperity wi]
probably have a few key feathers clipped away when the
President announces his anticipated $115 billion budget, $11
-billion of which will have to be borrowed! This will add tl
our national debt and further cause doubts to arise over the
world on the stability of the dollar and result in demands o
gold for payment of trade by the U. S. We are not broke, bu

HAPPENINGS THAT AFFECT THE FUTURE OF ALL
"Today, our priceless heritage of freedom is under re
lentless attack both at home and abroad." The words are
those of J. Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, taken from an address recently made on his
being awarded the Grand Cross of the Scottish Rite. He weni
on to detail where attacks of various kinds are in being-
in southeast Asia, in Europe and the Near East, Central and
South America. In all these vast areas, it has been necessary
to use American power in efforts to stem the communist tide.
And here at home the communist problem is not, Mr.
Hoover obviously believes, a small one. "Communism," he
says, "is a vast international conspiracy which today dom-
inates one-third of the earth's people. Here, in our own coun-
try, that ~conspiracy is represented by the Communist Party;
U. S. A., a bold and defiant band of anti-American turncoats
whose operations are directed and controlled by the Kremlin
in Moscow." ,
Mr. Hoover flatly denies that communism is a legitimate
political organization. As he sees it, the party constitutes a
foreign outpost on our shores. He cites, in evidence, such
communist objectives as withdrawal from South Viet Nam,
noninterference with communist terrorists in Santo Dominga,
and appeasement of the whole Marxist world.
In this country, Mr. Hoover reports, the communists are
especially eager to win recruits among American youth and
are confident they can do so. The party has placed heavy,
emphasis on campus speech programs in which skilled speak-
ers woo young people. He gives several examples. In one case,
the speaker told his young audience the Berlin Wall had been
built to hold back undesirables from the West who. were ini-
filtrating East Germany
Mr. Hoover adds that "It is'one of the glaring cbntradic-
tions of our day that the same Communist spokesmen., ho
'tre so glibtongued in their appearances before groups of col-
lege students immediately lose their voices when placed under
oath in a court of law or before a committee of Congress.
They always take refuge behind the fifth amendment. Our
.noral atmosphere would be better if they knew as much
bout the Ten Commandments ...".
The substance of his address is that we must choose
between law and anarchy; freedom and chaos. He finds
'anger signs that this country is being swept by an epidemic
of spiritual malnutrition. The massive increase in crime is

TRAPPERS ARE WARNED TO
FIRST GET THEIR LICENSES
Tallahassee-Florida trappers are
reminded that before trapping or
taking any fuf-bearing animal for
commercial purposes, they should
first obtain a trapping license. The
open season for trapping protected
fur-bearing animals is from De-
cember 1 to March 1, ard protected
fur-bearers may not be taken, ex-
cept during this open season.
According to W. B. Copeland,
chairman, Game and Fresh Water
Fish Coommission, Florida fur-
bearing animals fall into three
categories. The fully protected
which may not be taken at any
time ,and the unprotected fur-bear-
ers which may be taken at any
Fully protected fur-bearers are
the Everglades mink and Florida
weasel. Protected fur-bearers are
mink and otter. lMur-bearers with-
out a closed season are raccoon,
bobcat, opossum, red and gray fox,
skunk, civet cat and beaver. To
take any fur-bearer by any method
for commercial purposes requires
a trapping license. A valid method
license is required to hunt fur-
bearers for non-commercial pur-
poses, but such fur-bearers may not
be taken by traps.
The use of steel traps is prohib-
ited in Florida during the open
deer hunting season. Trapping is
prohibited in all wildlife manage-
ment areas unless authorized by
area regulations. Possession, sales
or purchase of untanned pelts of
any protected fur-bearing animal

Fishing poles, hanger rods for

uses for bamboo. Sections of the

Bamboos can serve as a ther-

temperature by the rate of growth.
During chilly periods bamboo culms

at the office of the' various County
Judges. Commercial fur dealers and
buyers are required to obtain their
licenses through the Game and
