& ^ :
We, along with many others, were holding our breath when
the present session of the Legislature began, to try and work out
a re-apportionment formula that would be acceptable to the courts.
We stood a lot to loose and still do.
But it looks now like the 48 Senator plan may pass. If it does
we will be linked to Bay and Washington County in a senatorial
district. This could be worse. We won't say it is good but it
could be worse.
If the 58 Senator plan passes, placing Gulf in the outlined 10-
county district, we believe this will be worse than our position will
be in the three-county district.. even if our neighbor Bay is three
times our size, and can theoretically monopolize the district Senate
At least, those people in Bay county can see us once in a while
and we may stand a fighting chance of getting some representation
once in a while.
The Representative districting plan approved by the House
also gives us a fighting chance at having some representation. Shar-
ing two representatives with Bay may allow us to work out some
,sort of a "gentleman's agreement" with Bay whereby we might be
able to furnish one of these Representatives, and thus maintain.
a small voice in Tallahassee.
In reading the Reader's Digest for March the other night, we
came upon an article, entitled, "How to make a Million Dollars
Before Age 40".
Since we will be 40 in four or five years, and since, like others
we wouldn't mind being a millionaire, we read the article.
But, shucks, it wasn't any use. The article didn't give any
sure-fire short cuts. According to this article, to become a mil-
lionaire, you have to work for it.
This article was evidently written B. J. (before Johnson) and
the article evidently hadn't heard of the Poverty Program. Surely
the Poverty Program will make all of us.millionaires, instead of
making the millionaires poor folks, like us.
But this "work for it" deal must be some kind of new prop-
aganda, since nobody works for money any more.
Well, hardly anybody, anyhow!
We thought about perennially 39 George McLawhon when we
read the article. Poor George had his 40th birthday yesterday, so
he doesn't stand a chance to become a millionaire ... before 40 any-

The Gulf County Commission in-
structed its attorney William J.
Rish not to proceed any farther
with the County's attempts to stop
action on validating of an issue of
revenue certificates by the Gulf
ouinty School Board, to be paid
for by race track funds that for-
merly were used by the County
Board for operating purposes.
The County had been attempting
to protect $70,000 of the race track
money to pay for bonds being float-
ed to construct the new Gulf 'Coun-
This action came Tuesday at the
regular meeting of thre Board when
attorney Rish informed the Board
that the Judge, Robert McCrary of
Marianna, had ruled for the Board
of Public Instruction, and conse-
quently, against the County Board.
GRANT CHAMBER FUNDS
Jim Cooper, president of the
Port St Joe-Gulf County 'Chamber
of Commerce appeared before the
Board of Commissioners Tuesday
requesting funds on which to op-
erate the Chamber of Commerce
and the Wewahitchka Development
Commission in their efforts to se-
cure industry for Gulf County.
Cooper pointed out to the Board
that these two bodies primarily did
a selling and advertising job for
the county and this activity took
money-more than could be raised
by private subscription.
Cooper asked for $15,000 for the.
groups to continue their work of
trying to make the county grow.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy made
a motion that each group, the
Chamber of Commerce and the
Wewahitchka Development Com-
mission, be furnished with $5,000
each out of any race track funds
the county should receive.''
This would require an amended
county budget, since the new item
has come about and since the .coun-
ty has not budgeted any race track
funds this year in view of ..the
$230,000 in race track funds going
to the School Board. But-even
though no track funds have been
budgeted, the Board feels that they
will have 'some money'available
from this source.
Commissioner Horton seconded
Kennedy's motion and the' entire
Board voted in favor, of the motion.
Whether or not the Chamber
and Development Commission will
receive the funds is still not known
however, as the Board has commit-
ted themselves'to sped $5,000 in
White City and $5,000 in Highland

fire houses for these communities.

ter into the cost of living is the
reason for the shrinking dollar, ac-
cording to Miss Vervil Mitchell,
home management and family econ-
omics specialist, Florida Agricul-
tural Extension Service.
Experience shows that there is
no sure way to avoid the effects
of price inflation, but there are
some things to keep in mind when
planning for the future, the spec-
Owning a home in most cases
can be a valuable form of infla-
tion protection. Real estate in a
good neighborhood in cities and
suburbs has gone up faster than
the cost of living.
With the' population moving
deeper into the countryside, farm-
land prices are going up. Unless
properly run, a farm can lose mon-
ey in a hurry because real estate
taxes must be paid yearly.
An office or apartment building
that brings in rental income could
be a hedge against inflation.
Wise money management and
greater satisfaction from money
being spent help combat the effects
Records show, says Miss Mitchell
that no one can count on coming
out unscathed from the effects of
the shrinking dollar.
But the records do indicate that
a careful investor in stocks, a
business, or in real estate stands
a good chance of coming out ahead.

THAT 1961 MEMO
It was natural that Senator Fulbright's performance
in questioning the wisdom of fighting the Communists in
Vietnam should have made a great hit with the lunatic left
of this country. But few people know how popular the
Senator from Arkansas has made himself in Moscow, Peip-
ing and Hanoi. Official Communist publications there and
elsewhere hail the Senator as a true statesman. And that
is high praise, if it is not exactly accurate.
The strange course taken by Senator Fulbright is
nothing new with him. Indeed, it sometimes seems as though
this complex man has a perverse anti-victory complex,
except of course when he is running for re-election. Ful-
bright also has a penchant for obstructing our military and
this was dramatically demonstrated in the "Fulbright
Memo" of 1961. ,Since people sometimes forget significant
things, a reminder may be in order.
Under curious circumstances a memorandum from
Senator Fulbright's office turned up in the hands of Presi-
dent Kennedy and Secretary of Defense McNamara. It was
not even'given to other members of Fulbright's Foreign
Relations Committee. This remarkable document was bit-
terly critical of American military officials and called them
unfit by training, background or experience to understand
the implications of the kind of grand strategy contemplated
for today's world.

Senator Fulbright we continue to get overtones reminiscent L
,of this Memo. The Secretary of Defense seems to have re-

There are some people who say that today our fight-

About four weeks ago, Life magazine ran about four
pages, in living color, of the harbor of Saigon and how the
life-blood of American troops in the way of supplies came
up the Saigon River to the port of Saigon and how the
River was narrow and how easily American supply lines
could be pinched at the neck by merely sinking one ship in
the Saigon River.
Somehow the Cong have received the word, whether by
a subscription to Life which they can surely buy, or by other
channels, this fact has been made'known to them.
For the past two weeks the Cong have been bending
every effort to sink a ship in the Saigon River. On at least
three occasions they have damaged incoming freighters.
If they continue to try, they will probably eventually

Senator Fulbright somehow lends the implication that
Red China would be too much for the U. S. to cope with

But regardless of our capabilities, we cannot but be-

China should throw their weight into the conflict, to once
more discredit the U. S. by pushing them out of another
And while they are pondering this move, perhaps they
have a better recollection of Korea than we do.
If Senator Fulbright continues, we predict that it will
not be long before China believes him.
