National Newspaper Week
This year, National Newspaper Week will be ob-
served from October 9 through 15, and it is an approp-
riate time to draw every American's attention to his daily
dependence on the written word for his knowledge, the
protection of his political freedom and the furtherance
of his material well-being.
The written words, appearing regularly in some 11,-
000 newspapers throughout the 50 states, are the perman-
ent record of news, information and opinion, which are
primary factors in crystalizing majority public opinion.
Under our form of government this will continue to shape
national policy and the kind of country we are to live in.
The pen is mightier than the sword but only so long
as it retains its freedom. In the United States, the free
press, composed of thousands of independent newspapers
dedicated to accurate reporting of the news and free ex-
pression of opinion, is the best guarantee that our free
society has a future.
Interest Growing 'In Anti-Pollution
We don't know anyone who disagrees that there is
urgent need, all over the country, to protect our streams,
rivers and lakes from pollution by industrial and other
wastes and also, in many places, to clean up what has al-
ready accumulated. But how to go about it may not be
so easily agreed upon.
Unquestionably, those enterprises which develop polu-
tant wastes must be held responsible for disposing of them
in a non-pollutant manner. Unfortunately the costs of the
necessary waste treatment plant, including its engineering,
construction and equipment, may often be a prohibitive capi-
tal expenditure for many companies, especially in our "tight
money economy". Particularly hard hit financially would
be the smaller industries which have sprung up in recent
years in outlying and rural areas, and which are generally
a great boon to the economic well being of surrounding com-
munities. For the government to pick up part of the tab
would only be to shift still another burden onto the tax-
We think the best course for government officials to
take, together with establishing reasonable anti-pollution
requirements, would be along the lines already begun in
Michigan. There the state legislature has passed a law
excluding an industry's waste treatment equipment from
taxation (setting it apart from the capital assets' of the
The need for concrete steps to be taken in deterring
pollution in Florida has been brought forth in recent weeks
by several meetings and speeches being made. especially
in this the Northwest Florida area. A meeting was held
last week in Pensacola to discuss future pollution problems
to all the rivers in this area, including the Apalachicola
River. The smaller streams and lakes were not discussed,
but certainly a threat to their purity is ever-present also.
A second sign of things to come was made this week
in a speech before the Panama City Rotary Club in which
a former member of the Florida Development Commission
stated that this area of Florida is the last, and new frontier
of Florida. Industry is on the way. And industry brings
waste materials that have been traditionally dumped into
the streams and eventually pollute the water.
We are in a very advantageous position to retain our
pure lakes and streams by staving off pollutants before
they arrive. We do not advocate the forbidding of indus-
try to our area the more that will come, the merrier.
Concrete steps taken now will have a clear-cut understand-
ing spelled out in writing as to the anti-pollution steps that
will be expected.
The Apalachicola River is nearest us and could well
become polluted in the next few years. Already a new
hardboard mill is opening on its banks near Blountstown.
It is presumed this plant's waste will be dumped into the
river. A new paper mill is scheduled-to begin construction
near Sneads on the river bank. Again it can be expected
that wastes will be dumped into the river.
Our pollution problems are small now. We have clear,
pure streams, free of industrial waste. This adds very
much to our well-being and abundance of water recreation.
The best time to practice anti-pollution measures is be-
fore the need for such measures arises.
Don't Sell U. S. Short
Contemporary happenings have a way of changing
appearance as they recede into the pages of history. It
is interesting to conjecture how historians will record the
economic status of the U. S. during the 1960's. The head-
lines will tell of strife and poverty. Production indexes,
on the other hand, will indicate an abundance such as no
nation had ever known. For the sake of the record, it
should be reported that although large numbers of people
are classified as poor by government definition, very few
Americans today are actually denied the minimum accept-
able level of health, housing, food and education.
In 1960, according to M. A. Wright, president of the
Chamber of Commerce of the United States, only about 7
per cent of American dwelling units were delapidated. By
1964, more than 90 per cent of American households had
television. Four out of every five households had tele-
phones and at least one automobile. Among families, offi-
cially classed as "poor", earning $3,000 or less, there is
more material well-being than might be thought. For ex-
ample, over 75 per cent own a television set, about half
own both a television set and a telephone, three fourths
own a washing machine, 20 per cent own a home freezer, 65
per cent have a dwelling unit that is not delapidated, withW
running water and bathroom facilities -for their own use,
and approximately one in seven bought a car last year.
Admittedly, statistics are unreliable guides in measur-
ing poverty. However, the foregoing should be of more
than passing interest to historians.

fingerpainting is done on big
sheets of glossy paper. It you
have none, a roll of glazed white

squeezes out colors and makes
designs with his fingers and
hands. The paint washes off. In
fair weather the patio or picnic
table is ideal. On rainy days, the
basement spread with newspapers
gives room to work. Finished
drawings can be clipped to a

DON T LOE IT-
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
I've found the answer!
Most of the debate of the day has been centered about
what is causing the riots of recent months. Civil rights
has been discounted as the cause the Communists
say they had nothing to do with it. and the do-gooders
say they don't have a thing to do with the riots in trying
to put a pheasant under glass on every dinner table.
An article in a recent issue of the Florida Times-Un-
ion gave us the clue.
Have you bought a pair of men's pants recently? Did
you notice how tight they fit, even though they were plain-
ly marked for your size? This, of course, is because the
pants manufacturers are cutting them snugger nowadays.
This is the style. It has caused us to begin wearing patch-
ed pants, simply because the older pants in our wardrobe
fit us better.
But, let's get back to the subject at hand.
We contend that the recent riots are caused by the
new fashions in pants tight fit and all .
The article we mentioned back up top a piece in these
meanderings mentioned an article in the Times-Union as
the basis of our theory. A writer for the T-U tried on a
pair of King George the Third's pants the other day and
he remarked how uncomfortable they were. This writer,
Eddie Gilmore, surmised that the tight pants caused the
good King to be so uncomfortable that he became grou-
chy and inflicted unfair taxation on the people of Boston
thus the tea party was born because of a pair of tight
britches, just to stay in style.
Give us the old, loose fitting britches and let peace
and comfort reign once more.
Do you need a good, healthy, handsome cat?
Postmaster Chauncey Costin says that he has 11 head
on hand now that he can be persuaded to part with .
and to show that his heart is in the right place, he won't
charge a cent for them if you come today.
He has any size and color you want. but the breeds
are uncertain, to say the least!
Chauncey brags that these cats are well fed and cared
for, even though some of them were strays.
Come to think of it, since Chauncey takes such good
care of his cats, this might be a good place to put that cat
you don't want. He'll have a good home.
We want to publicly thank and congratulate the
Sharks ,for their winning record this year. We had one
heck of a job last year, explaining how we lost in 10 differ-
ent ways. But you can say "we won" in just one way all
season, if you like, and nobody gets tired of reading it
again and again.

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word is thoughtfully
weighed. The spoken word barely asserts; the printed word thoroughly con-
vinces. The spoken word is lost; the printed word remains.
Proponents claim this would pre-
vent a newly-elected majority of
the school board from having to
accept a superintendent whom they
did not select or appoint. They
may reappoint the same person if
they so desire. Those in favor also
claim that a competent superin-
tendent would not resent the limi-
tations of the contract terms.
Opponents claim the limited
terms would prevent competent
people from agreeing to the con-
tract. They fear it would create
factions on the school board and
put a form of politics into the posi-
tion of superintendent.
Art. VI, Sec. I PRESIDENTIAL
This proposal would authorize
the legislature to permit residents
of Florida who have not lived in
the state for the required one year
or in the county for six months
to vote in national elections only
for President and Vice President of
the United States. This amendment'
would also remove the require-

WATCH THOSE CALORIES
. Now that the fall and winter
are approaching, many of us will
become less active than we have
been during the summer months.
And so the extra pounds will
creep up on us faster than the
So now you and I will be say-
ing to ourselves, "Better watch
those calories!" Watch 'em?
Watching them isn't enough.
We have to count them. Not the
way some of us maybe have been
counting the golf strokes all sum-
mer, with a convenient forgetful-
ness when nobody is looking. The
calories will show up, even if you
watch them, and even if you
count them, unless you also con.
"If winter comes, can spring
be far behind?" If you over-eat,
can overweight be far behind?
And we'd better not rely on the
more active spring season ahead
to cut the weight back to normal.
Better to keep it there.
The best way to keep weight
where it belongs is to weigh reg-
ularly, at least once a weekly. Soii
like to weigh daily, and this is
all right if it doesn't worry you
when you fluctuate up and down
a pound or two. Whenever there
is the slightest indication of a
steady trend upward, even if it
is slow, that is the time to stop,
look and listen. That's when there
may be danger ahead.
In order to control calories it
is necessary to know exactly how
many you -ared taking in daily.
The standard person is described
as a male, 25, weighing 154
pounds, or a 25-year-old female,
128 pounds., Recommended daily
calorie levels a're 2900 for the
man, 2100 for the woman. As age
progresses, calorie recommenda-
tions are less.:,
There are good sources of in-
formation available about caloric
and other ,nutritional values.
Among these. are the publications
of the American Medical Asso-
ciation, especially TODAY'S
HEALTH GUIDE; the materials
published by the American Diet-
etic Association and the Ameri-
can Diabetes- Association; the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Handbook #8, COMPOSITION
OF FOODS; a manual by Alice V.
Bradley, TABLES OF FOOD
VALUES; and reliable books on
nutrition anf~~weight control.
Avoid Fad Books
But look out just because it
got printed between hard covers
doesn't necessarily make it au-
thentic. Check it with someone

Watching, j ning and eon-
trolling calories does not mean
unbalancing the diet with crash
diets-the main thing they crash
is your good nutrition and your
good health. And you soon gain
your weight back when you .quit
them. Safe and sane weight con-
trol means controlling how much
you eat in relation to your ac-
tivity, without losing any of the

Holy Spirit having a greater con-

Second, there is no instruction
for such unbiblical terms as "sec-
ond blessing", "a second work of
grace" or "the higher life". We are
told: "But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the glory of
the Lord, are changed into the
same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
Notice carefully, we may be
"changed from glory to glory" even
into the image of Christ, and this
is done by the Holy Spirit. (II Cor-
inthians 3:18). .
Third, in John 16:12-15, we find
that the Holy Spirit does not speak
of Himself. His purpose is to re-
veal and glorify Christ.
Fourth, though the Holy Spirit
does not reveal Himself, He is the
power and cause of the only true
spiritual life. His work is to mani-
fest the life of Christ in the be-
liever to such an extent that the
believer can say with Paul: "For

-- EXTRA SPECIAL VALUE
Boston baked beans, a perennial cold weather and holiday favorite,
often miss their rightful place on the menu simply because the pre-
scribed preparation time, up to six hours, just won't fit into a busy
A happy solution is the use of an aluminum pressure cooker, which
makes cooking time a matter of minutes instead of hours, yet retains
the zesty homemade flavor of this hearty, nourishing dish. Rugged
aluminum pressure cookers or pressure saucepans conduct heat quickly
and evenly to maintain the exact temperatures so important to con-
trolled pressure cooking.
For everyday family meals or those big holiday dinners, this baked.
bean recipe will take pressure off the cool and put old-fashioned flavor
back on the table.
BOSTON BAKED BEANS
2 cups (1 pound) dried teaspoons salt
pea beans /4 teaspoon dry mustard,
V/4 pound salt pork '-' y cups water
4 tablespoons sugar I medium whole onion, peeled
4 tablespoons molasses
Wash beans and soak overnight in water to cover. Drain. Make cuts
S1/2 inch apart down to rind of salt pork. Mix sugar, molasses, seasonings
and water in 4 quart aluminum pressure cooker. Add beans, onion and
!salt pork. Cover. Cook at 15 pounds pressure for 45 minutes following
manufacturer's directions for using pressure cooker. Makes about 5
cups baked beans.

Mrs. Burns Host
The Women's Auxiliary of the
Pentecostal Holiness Church on
Garrison Avenue, met in the home
of Mrs. Daisy Burns Monday night
for their regular monthly meeting.
The meeting was called to order
by the president, Mrs. Maxine Mo-
ney. Mrs. Willie Mae Lollie led in
the opening prayer. All sang to-
gether the circle theme song,
"Working and Serving".
Mrs. Bernice Gosnell chose the
word "Patience" as the subject of
her devotion. She stated that pa-
tience is one of the virtues of a
true christian that many are lack-
ing. Jesus stated to His disciples
that "looking ahead, patience is
your salvation". Paul exhorted to
the church to "have patience and
endure to the end".
Mrs. Jo Ferrell read the minutes
of the last meeting and gave a
complete financial report. Many
things were discussed for things
to be done in the future. A rum-
mage sale will be held November
5. Mrs. Claude Ferrell closed the
meeting with prayer.
Refreshments were served by
the hostess to those present.

Proposed Constitution Amendments
(Continued From Page 2)
.. members of the Florida Bar.
This amendment would authorize
the legislature to require county
judges to be members of the Flor-
ida Bar, subject to approval by re-
ferendum in the counties. It would
not affect the present term of re-
election of any county judge now
holding the office who is not a
member of the Bar.
Art. V, Sec. 7 COUNTY JUDGES
The Constitution at present pro-
vides that there shall be one coun-
ty judge in each county; that in
counties with population 125,000-
250,000 the legislature may author-
ize an additional judge, if approved
by referendum; that the legisla-
ture may, with referendum, pro-
vide for one additional judge for
each additional 250,000 popula-
tion. It limits the monetary juris-
diction of county judges' courts to
$100; it requires that county judg-
es shall issue all licenses required
The proposed amendment would
authorize the legislature by law,
but without local referendum, to
determine the number of county
judges to be monetary jurisdiction
of the courts, eliminating the pre-
sent $100 limit. It also deletes the
requiremtnt that county judges is-
sue all licenses.
Proponents say this amendment
would enable the county courts- to
handle the mounting caseload in
growing counties. It would relieve
county judges of the clerical func-
Opponents say -the legislature
should not be granted such unlimit-
ed authority to increase the num-
Art. V, added section REMO-
VAL, _RETIREMENT, _DISCIPLIN-
ING OF JUDGES.
This amendment would set up a
procedure for the discipline, re-
tirement, and removal of any
justice of the supreme court, judge
of a district court of appeal, and
judge of a circuit court.
The amendment sets up a com-
mission, composed of justices, judg-
es and laymen who, after investi-
gation and hearings, would make
recommendations to the supreme
court concerning the disciplining or
retirement or removal of the jus-
tices and judges of the above men-
tioned courts. This commission
would also be empowered to pri-
vately reprimand when stronger
discipline is not deemed necessary.
The amendment also adds a provi-
sion that a circuit court judge
must have been a member of the
Florida Bar for five years or more.
Art. XVI, Sec 29 CONDEMNA-
TION OF PROPERTY JURIES.
The present Constitution pro-
vides that juries which consider
compensation for condemnation of
property should be composed of
The proposed amendment chan-
ges men to jurors, thus permitting
women to serve on juries in con-
demnation of property cases.
Art. III, added section SPECIAL
SESSION FOR ORGANIZATION.
This amendment would require
the legislature to meet in special
session on the first Tuesday in No-
vember after the general election,
in order to organize, swear in new
members and select officers, and
for no other business.
The Constitution at present pro-
vides that legislators elected in
the November general election take
office at once but they are not
sworn in until the regular bien-
nial session which convens in A-
pril, five months after election.
Proponents say this organization
session would enable the President
of the Senate and the Speaker of
the House to appoint the commit.
tees which will function in the re-
gular session. The committee mem-
bers would then have five months
in which to familiarize themselves
with their committee assignments.
Opponents say although the in-
tent of this proposal is a good one,
this amendment does not put any
time limit on the special session
and therefore it could be too costly
for the benefits received.
Art. IX, added section-PARTIAL
EXEMPTION OF INVENTORY
This amendment would authorize
the legislature to provide a partial
ad valorem tax exemption to goods,
wares, commodities and merchan-
dise, commonly known as stock in
trade inventory, as the legislature
At present the Constitution re-
quires the legislature to provide
for uniform and equal rate of tax-
ation on real and personal proper-
ty, including inventory.
Proponents of this amendment
feel it would allow the legislature
to ease the burden in certain areas
such as slow-moving items which
may be on inventory more than
one year and thus taxed more than
once. They feel it is at least a step
in the right direction until other
sources of income are found to re-
place this tax.
Opponents claim that it would
be discriminatory, favoring only
those items or categories chosen
by the legislature. Many small
businessmen are asking that the
whole inventory tax be abolished.
The three following amend-
ments affect particular counties
only, but, because their provi-
sions are exceptions to general
constitutional provisions, they
must be voted on by all Florida
Art. V, added section
Orange County Justice of the
This amendment would author
ize the county commisisoners of
Orange County to revise the bound
daries of any justice of the peacr
district, after resolution, public
hearing and published notice.
The Constitution at present re
quires changes in boundaries of
justice of the peace courts must b
made by the legislature and their
approved by referendum.
Proponents say the county com-
mission should not have to wai'
for biennial sessions of the legisle
ture, and a referendum, in order tr
alter boundaries of JP districts a

Opponents say eliminating pro
visions for referendum might er

This amendment affects only th-
13th judicial circuit (Hillsborougl
County). It proposes to divide thc
office of state attorney of tha'

It Pays To Know Your
Social Security Benefits
Many people want to. continue
working after reaching retirement
age, according to John V. Carey,
District Manager of the Panama
City Social Security Office. Some
continue on a full time basis, while
others enjoy doing part time or
It is not necessary to retire com-
pletely once a person applies for
Social Security. Carey stated that
if an individual expects to work
while receiving Social Security ben-
efits, it is important that he knows
exactly how his earnings will ef-
fect his Social Security checks. -
There are two key factors to-
tal earnings and the months work-
ed that determine how much of
the yearly Social Security benefits
can be paid. If an individual's earn-
ings do not exceed $1500 for the
year, he will be entitled to all his
Social Security monthly checks.
Even if his yearly earnings are
more than $1500, he may be eligi-
ble for some Social Security bene-
One dollar in Social Security ben-
efits is withheld for each two dol-
lars a person earns between $1500
and $2700. Once the yearly earn-
ings go over $2700, one dollar in
benefits is withheld for each dol-
lar earned. For self-employed peo-
ple, this is determined by their net
earnings or profit.
No matter how much is earned
in a year, Social Security benefits
can be paid for any month an in-
dividual neither earns over $125.00
as an employee nor renders sub-
stantial services as a self-employed
person. Also, Social Security bene-
fits can be paid to someone for all
months beginning with the month
of his 72nd birthday.

Have You Asked Y
Why should you travel extra miles and use tu
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs than in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
HOW can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches
hospital, and other community facilities?
ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid
and contributions made by our local business peo-
4 ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build a
better community for you.
