action, there was a good bit of busi-
ness taken care of.

the City desires to purchase for a
municipally owned boat basin. Col'-

'As an alternate,; he Paper Com-

not discussed with the company

WHEN THE DUST FlLIES WATCH'
OUT FOR DAMAGE 'TO LUNGS
When'the dust flies-as it does
in many places yhere people are at
work-a certain amount of damage
may be 'done to lung tissues. The
resulting diseases are known by
the formidable sounding name
Various kinds of dusts are gen-
erated in manufacturing and min-
ing operations. Some are danger-
ous, others aren't., Some can cause
serious' disease leading to severe
injury or even death. The variety
is considerable. There is anthraco-
silicosis, caused by inhaling a com-
bination of coal dust and silica. As-
bestosis results from inhaling as-
bestos fibers. BeryllHosis is caused
by beryllium dust. A'll of these ail-
ments can be :quite serious.
Symptoms of dust diseases are
hard to detect, late in showing up.
The earliest symptom is usually
shorthess of breath. 'Some time
later a persistent` cough becomes
evident. When the disease is far
advanced, and dust covers much of
the lung area, there are chest pains.
The 'dust deposits, which have
slowed up the normal flow of oxy-
gen into the blood stream, may re-
,,sult in blueness of the lips and ear
lobes. Complications in the form of
other' serious lung ailments may
Treatment is mostly a matter of
relieving the effects of the symp-
toms ,and removing the cause of
the disease. Obviously, a "must"
measure for someone with a dis-
ease caused by inhaling, dust at his
job is to switch to some other type
of work. But sometimes it may be
possible to bring about sufficient
reduction in dust intake to permit
continuance at the same job.
If shortness of breath or a per-
sistent cough develops, the only
sensible course is 'to consult a doc-

NEWS FROM ABROAD
Two recent news stories with foreign datelines founc
their way into a folder on the desk here. One reads:
"PANAMA CITY-A peaceful street demonstration cap-
ped by the burning of a U. S. flag marked the seconC
anniversary of riots in which 21 Panamanians and 4
Americans were killed. About 200 marchers parade(
to the National Cemetery and made a brief stop jus(
outside the U. S. controlled (canal) Zone."
Maybe we had better read that first sentence again. "A
peaceful street demonstration capped by the burning of c
U. S. flag ." What in the world is considered peacefr
these days? And how many other editors let that dispatcl-
go to the composing room unedited?
Immediately there comes to mind that affair in Washing
ton a few weeks back when policemen in our nation's capita-
were ordered to remove small replicas of the American flag
from their uniform lapels while they were keeping the way
clear for a bunch of demonstrators who paraded on the Wash
ington Monument grounds behind the flag of the enemy Comn
munist Viet Cong. That was a "peaceful" demonstration, too
At least the policemen were not ordered to burn the Ameri
And then there is this story, quoted in toto:
"Bogota, Dec. 20-Colombia got $102.5 million in ale
from the United States for budget-balancing purposes
The total included $65 million from the International De-
velopment Agency, $15 million from the Export-Import
Bank, $12.5 million from the U. S. Treasury and $1C
million from the Food-for-Peace Program."
For "budget-balancing purposes" the government of Co-
lombia gets $102.5 million from the United States? Pardor
me if I seem to sputter, but do I understand that we are giv-
ing Colombia one-hundred-and-two-and-a-half-million-dollars
for budget-balancing purposes? Of our money?
Somebody must be joshing. Is that part of the deficit
the President was talking about the other night when he held
forth on the State of the Union? That kind of money sounds
more like a down-payment on the purchase of the country
than "aid" or good-will assistance.
Well, it goes to show you that reading a newspaper still
is a great education every day of the year.
LENGTHENING THE COATTAILS
We're not at all surprised that a good many Congress-
men are enthused about President Johnson's proposal for r
Constitutional amendment extending a Congressman's terrr
of office from two years to four. Since they gave themselves,
that pay raise a couple of years ago, we suppose it's onl:
natural they'd like a little more "job-security" once they've
managed to get elected. We're grateful, therefore, that the
proposed amendment has to be ratified by the States.
It may be that there's some merit in the President':
argument for a four-year term. Tending to the job in Wash
ington probably does interfere with some Congressmen':
campaigns for reelection-or vice-versa. But, on the othe-
hand, let all those Representatives get really settled in Wash
ington, with no professional need to visit the folks back home
and it just might be that an increasing number would forge'
whose interests it is that they are supposed to represent.
Also, we're not convinced that Mr. Johnson's proposal
derives entirely from his concern for the campaigning prob
lems of the members of the House. Even though the propose(
amendment, if passed, would not take effect during his ow'
term in office, we can't rid ourselves of the thought tha'
maybe the President thinks it both unfair and inconvenien
for a President to haul a pack of cooperative Congressmer
into office on his coattails only to have them fall by the way-
side two years later. Can it be that the President is trying tc
double the length of the coattails for his successors in the

point. He needs only to revise his proposal to provide tha'

cultural Experiment Stations.
He points out that because of the

"Some vine is in bloom each

Some deciduous vines, because of

Ornamentals ,to be satisfactory
for landscape planting, should be
well adapted to the environment
where they are to be grown. Other-

grown in the colder regions are
not adapted to Florida's warmer
climates. He adds that there's con-
siderable variation in the hardiness
of plants. ,
For these reasons, the specialist
says relatively few 'vines can be
planted everywhere in the state.

tion last week end and was somewhat less than agreeable.
Reports vary as to the low temperature everywhere from
eight to 18_ degrees. But one thing everyone agreed on \ .. it
Many water pipes burst in the city and several homes had
their water frozen up into the day Sunday, when the temperature
peeked a degree or two above freezing for about an hour and then
plunged right down again.
One man I overheard said his wife filled the bath tub with
watdr 'Saturday evening to have water to wash with the next day
in case their pipes froze. But, alas, the drain to the bathtub froze
and the water cache didn't drain out until- Monday afternoon!
.---And the weather man says there will be more of the same this
week end. Those ,clothing merchants who were praying for cool
weather back in October and November are getting it now but it
is. too late to do the good for them that it should have.
This weather makes me thankful for a warm, snug home.
During the week end freeze, our gas went off Saturday night
like so many others, and with the gas going off, the furnace went
off too. But we didn't know it until the next morning because the
temperature in the house dropped only 10 degrees and we were
Did you see the invitation for Red China and North Viet Nam
to join the U.-N. in the papers this week?
The U. S. has' asked the U.'N. to mediate the Viet Nam war
and try to bring about peace.
Now all of you who think that Red China or North Viet Nam
will listen to the pleas of the United Nations until they are al-
lowed to become members stand up and be counted.

ity to convince the people ,of California that he would make them
a better Governor than Pat Brown. Time will tell how good an

Sharks Win Two Tough Games Last
Week From Aitha and Wewahitchka
The Port St. Joe Sharks had two
tough games during the past week
that tested theif abilities right up
to the game-ending horn.
Last Friday, the Sharks were
hosts to the Altha, Wildcats and
came out of the contest with an
eight point victory, winning over
the Wildcats 70-62.
The Altha team kept tall David
Macomber in a bind all night, hold-
ing the high-scoring Shark ace to
a piddling nine points, his lowest
output of the season. But they
could do nothing to prevent Ma-
comber from recovering 21 re-
bounds for the night.
Jake Belin and David Lee car-
ried the Sharlk scoring chores for
the night making 28 and 21 points
Despite the close game, the Wild-
cats won only- one quarter, the
second, when they out-scored the
The Sharks were behind at half
time 34-32, but rallied in the third
and fourth period to tuck away the

The Wewahitchka Gators began
to show some of their past basket-
ball power Tuesday night, when
the Sharks took them by a 14 point
margin in Wewahftchka.
Jake Belin continued his high-
score production, netting 30 points
for the evening. David Macomber,
rallied from the Altha-game to put
20 points through the hoop. David
Lee picked up 13 points.
The Gators started slow scoring
only seven points in the first per-
iod and 11 'in the second. It looked
at half-time' as 'if the Sharks were
going' to have one of their lop-
sided victories. But the Gators
roared back in the third period to
match the Sharks 20'\point produc-
tion and out-scored the Sharks 17-
15. in the final stanza.

BLOOMS IN TEN WEEKS AFTER
PLANTING ROSE BUSHES
Gainesville Dormant bare-root
rose plants available now through
March will be in bloom about 10
weeks after you plant them.
Researchers with the state's Agri-
cultural Experiment Stations say
the best time to plant roses in
northern Florida is now since re-
peated freeze injury to the new
shoots exhausts stored food and
will kill those plants which do not
have well established root systems.
S. E. McFadden,'Stations assist-
ant horticulturist, adds that most
'failures of healthy dormant rose
plants result from not getting
"Since rainfall is light during the
winter,, rose plants should be wat-
ered daily until growth starts and
then weekly after growth starts,"
He said a temporary, soil mound
will help keep lower parts of canes
moist. Dormant canes failing to
produce shoots within two weeks
after planting should be covered
with burlap, Spanish moss or trans-
parent plastic and kept moist.
The specialist says occasionally
dormant rose plants fail to grow
because of cold injury in storage
or in transit. If you suspect this,
peel away a small .piece of the out-
er bark along the cane. If the in-
ner bark is brown rather than the
normal green, the canes will soon
