-About a month ago the U. S. 'Press Association wrote
an editorial entitled "Dream Agency". Editor Lyle Mun-
son had turned his imagination on, tuned it to high gear,
and dreamed up an experimental federal commission which
would coordinate and consolidate all procurement of col-
lating materials and devices for all branches of government,
federal, state, county, municipal, township, etc.
In this fantasy, the Office for Coordinated Purchasing
and Distribution of Collating Materials and Devices-paper
clips--was blueprinted to assess the annual needs of all
branches of government, a survey that would take "6 or 8
months?'. Then a comprehensive research program was en-
visioned for testing materials and styles. And, finally, some
costly manuals were projected, encouraging re-use of the
paper clips. Great economies were outlined, since this cen-
tralized buying would permit ordering paper clips by the
S What editor Munson didn't know when he was trying
to be funny was that "The Observer", in London, England,
- was reporting that a firm inSingapore recently received
an inquiry from Saigon for "12 million trombones". "Trom-
bone" is the French word for paper clip. Saigon, and that
means, presumably, the American forces there, wanted a
price on 12 million paper clis.
That report set us to doing a bit of window-gazing
in-our office. And the people in the shop thought we had
gone a bit nutty. We counted out standard-size paper

The Miami News and two area dailies have been working over-
time pouring the publicity~ to Port St. Joe during the past week.
And all that it proved was that there are still dailies in the State
that thrive on sensationalism.
The stories have resulted in some distasteful activities here in
Port St. Joe distasteful to all of our citizens, both colored and
We agree with the Miami News to a point. If the two Negroes
in death row at Raiford for the killing of two Port St. Joe area men
in 1963 are innocent, they should be released. If Curtis Adams, Jr's
confession of the murder is valid, he should replace the two Ne-
groes on death row.
But whether or not I believe, or you believe, Adams' confession,
it should be investigated by law enforcement agencies .. not
Language used by all of the dailies seems aimed toward causing
racial disturbances here in Port St. Joe it seems to us.
Reportings by area dailies- early Thursday of ,the incident on
Main Street between ONE Negro and Port St. Joe's police chief and
two State's Attornies, was, in our opinion, handled in the light of
a racial incident which it wasn't.
We take off our hat to the law enforcement agencies, and both
the white and colored population of Port St. Joe for refusing to
let area news media fan this incident into racial strife.
The thing that burns me is that these same dailies have a pact
in their communities to squelch racial reporting to remove any pub-
licity factor from the happenings. But no such compunctions exist
with them here in neighboring Port St. Joe.
The whole mess was intended to evolve into a racial incident.
But it didn't.
We firmly believe that the daily representatives were called
here to witness a planned demonstration Planned by one per-
son. Otherwise how do you explain two daily newspaper representa-
tives being in town at the correct time, at the correct spot ... and
with cameras? That kind of luck just doesn't happen to a news
man. A tip is needed.
We deplore the fact that they fell for the bait.
True it was a deserving news story. But it didn't necessitate
a headline as big as the one allowed for the Federal Courts reappor-
tioning the State of Florida. It didn't rate picture coverage for
In our opinion the big story should have been the manner
in which ALL the citizens of Port St. Joe responded to a situation
,that was designed to cause an explosion but didn't.
Most of us usually wonder how we would handle ourselves
'Under fire". Some bend and some stand unwavering.
Chief H. W. Griffin stood unwavering last Thursday afternoon
'while he was being provoked into creating an incidence that
might have taken some doing to get out of. He literally "turned
the other cheek" while remaining firm in his resolution to make
his arrest without doing bodily harm or restraint to his assail-
Chief Griffin earned the respect of both the white and black
population of this city last Thursday by refusing to budge from
his duty and resolution to maintain peace.

Peace Corps Placement Test at
1:30 P.M., on Saturday, February
18, at Panama City, Room 226 of
the Post Office Building.
The Peace Corps uses the Place-

titude and the ability to learn a
language, not education or achieve-

to place the applicant in an Eng-
lish-speaking country.) The Place-
ment Test requires no preparation
and is non-competitive-an appli-

The application form, not the
Placement Test, is the most impor-
tant factor in the selection of Vol-

ing in the Peace Corps must fill
out an application, if they have
not already done so, and present it

There are two paramount ways,

region any less frequently. Quite the contrary. He knows a vice

from his counsel. Welcome him when 'he calls.

"Thus Saith The Lord"
by REV. BILL GRAHAM
We shall continue, Lord willing,
our subject of harmony in the
home. Last issue we covered the
subject of children and their place
in the home. Today we shall look
at another member of the home in
relation to the responsibility of
Turn in your Bibles to Ephesians
6:4 "And, ye fathers, provoke not
your children to wrath: but bring
them up in the nurture and ad-
monition of the Lord." This is ad-
dressed to fathers.
Two reasons might be given. 1)
Fathers are more inclined to be-
come impatient and unduly harsh
and unkind with their children. 2)
Fathers are directly responsible to
God for the material, physical and
SPIRITUAL well-being of the fam-
ily. They may not want this re-
sponsibility but they cannot avoid
it. Dad, God holds you responsi-
Dr. H. A. Ironside tells of a
young lady that came to him for
advise'. She could not go to her
father for she had no confidence
in him. The reason given was that
she never heard her father pray
at home. He never gathered his
family together for Bible reading.
He saved all his religion for church

on Sunday and never showed any
during the week.
What a miserable failure that
father was! I have four questions
that I use to help fathers evaluate
their place in the family. "Do you
believe in Heaven?" They usually
answer "yes". "Do you believe in
Hell?" Again the answer is "yes".
"Do you love your children?"
Again, the answer would be "yes".
Then the final question, "If your
children followed your example
would it lead them to a knowledge
If they followed in your foot-
steps would you lead them to Hea-
ven or Hell? The usual response
is a change of subject or they will
clam up and stomp angrily away.
They go right back to tinkering
with automobiles, hunting, fishing,
golfing, drinking or whatever is
their first love. This is using the
time they could be with the fam.
ily on that which is more import-
ant to them.
The only conclusion that can be
drawn from their action is that
they would rather see their chil-
dren in eternal Hell than to give
up their hobbies or habits. They
would rather see their children
unsaved than to use the time God
has given them to teach, love, and
live before their children the facts
and example of God's way.
-Do they love their children?
Watch their lives. They will spend
their free time doing what they
love the most. How about you Dad?
When was the last time you prayed
with your children? When was the
last time you went to Sunday
School with them? When was the
last time you, in love, took time
to teach your children?
Are you, in the eyes of ,God and
your family, a miserable failure?
You need not be: Christ died for
you. He paid for your sins of mis-
erable failure. He paid for all your
sins. Trust Him. Accept Him as
your Saviour. Then ask for the love
and wisdom to be the right kind
of father to your family. Without
Christ it is impossible. With Christ,
all things are possible to him that

WHITE CITY-For the second
consecutive year the Forest Service
annual award for motor vehicle
safety has been awarded to District
One of the Florida Forest Service.
The award is based on the num-
ber of miles driven, number of ve-
hicles, and the number of prevent-
able accidents. At the close of
each year the records of the six
districts are examined to deter-
mine the winner.
State Forester C. H. Coulter
made the announcement of the
winner at a recent meeting attend-
ed by Forest Service supervisors.;
During the year, said Coulter,
personnel of District One (the 10
countieswe west of the Apalachicola
River) drove 131 vehicles a total
of 1,349,376 miles. There were
two preventable accidents and four
nonpreventable accidents. No per-
sonal injuries resulted from any
of the accidents.
During the previous year District
One personnel drove 1,290,750
miles. Only one preventable acci-
dent with property damage of
$45.00 was recorded.
During the past year total pro-
perty damage from vehicle acci-
dents amounted to $2225. Of this
total, $2100 resulted when a Forest
Service truck was hit while legally
parked. This loss was covered by
insurance of the other driver. The
remaining three nonpreventable
and both preventable accidents,
therefore, resulted in property
damages of $125.00.
According to County Ranger
Alton Hardy, Gulf County per-
the importance of homemaking as
a career. More than 5 million girls
have participated in the program
since it began and, with 1967
awards added, scholarship grants
have exceeded $1.3 million.
