For Installation In Few Days
Paving Work Is
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
and City Auditor and Clerk Charles
Brock reported to the City Com-
mission Tuesday night that 100
new parking meters, ordered by
the city had arrived yesterday.
The city ordered 100 new auto-
matic meters to place on Reid
Avenue to replace meters that
have been worn out long ago. The
meters are designed to better con-
trol parking on the street and will
carry a two-hour limit.
Chief Griffin said that the new
meters will be installed by a fac-
tory representative probably with-
in the next two weeks.
Chief- Griffin also announced
that the Third District Peace Offi-
cers Convention will be held here
in Port St. Joe on April 1 for the
second year in succession.

A request was heard from the

speaker for the occasion.
Dean Eisman said that the tea-
cher is 'probably the most impor-

in his growing process. He pointed
out that a teacher must not only
be able to impart knowledge but
must lead a life that will set a good
example for his students. "Teach-

Dean Eisman pointed out that
every parent wants the best tea-
cher available to teach his chil-
dren, on every level of education.
The speaker pointed out that while
Floridians wanted the best, they
were not now paying for it and he
expressed confidence that the Leg-
islature would remedy this situa-
tion in the next session of the Leg-
islature. He also pointed out that
the shortage of classroom space
and teacher-load is becoming an
acute problem in Florida.
As a contrast, Dean Eisman said
that Florida's junior college sys-
tem was probably the best in the
nation. The growth had been slow,
but orderly. Students in lower
classes are taught by qualified in-
structors, whereby some colleges

Voting Machines Draw Approval
Our editorial of last week concerning voting machines
as an answer to Gulf County's frustration following election
day, brought results. All that we heard was in favor of
the move. And, usually we hear the other side first.
One lady reminded us that a half dozen or so years
ago we opposed voting machines for Gulf County. We
'did then. But we have exercised the prerogative to
change our mind. Most of our change of mind has come
about by increased confusion at election time. Several
years ago, elections weren't so long 'and drawn out as they
are now nor so frequent.
One County Commissioner with whom we usually ex-
change congenial conversation and warm handshakes -
but hardly ever see eye to eye politically has also offered
his approval of the move.
We might pdint out that there will be no need for
Gulf County to purchase the voting machines. This is
what we opposed a few years back. Voting machines
are an expensive investment to use once every two years
(every six months here lately) and Gulf County can hardly
afford the luxury of owning the machines. But they can
be leased. Counties and cities in Georgia or Alabama,
who vote at a different time than Florida (except in Pres-
idential elections) would probably be more than glad to
lease Gulf County machines.
The savings in money as well as time should be
substantial also. Quickly adding up the workers in the
seven precincts of Gulf County hired for a second shift
to count ballots, added to the substantial cost of large com-

Usually when a new organization is formed around here, it
muddles along for a few months trying to get established. Then
a substantial amount of time is consumed in getting organized the
second time in order to get any work done.
But the newest organization in Gulf County has .bolted the
The newly-organized Gulf County Rod and Gun Club was
hardly on its feet its officers barely in office before it
began taking concrete steps to meet its announced goal that
of replenishing the stock of wild game, in the county.
Last Thursday morning, 10 deer, eight does and two bucks,
were released in a protected area in the County to begin the cycle
of replenishing the skimpy deer herd now roaming Gulfs swamps.
Twenty more deer will be secured and released in the near future.
We wish the club well in its efforts.
We read in the papers the other day where a man in Chicago
received a medal and a $100.00 cash reward for giving information
that led to the capture and conviction of a murderer. This is a
nice gesture, but since when should a citizen be rewarded thusly
for doing his civic duty?.
Rewards usually come for doing something out of the ordinary
but our civic responsibility should be as ordinary as breathing with
no reward for such offered or expected.

Mr. Adams and Mr. Faircloth have been giving the Governor
a rough time here lately. Of course, the Governor has made some
mistakes, but, in my book, mistakes should cause both Adams and
Faircloth to offer a correction for the mistake made, rather than
making politics out of them. Like as not, if so many Republican
candidates weren't running for so many Legislative seats on March
28, both Adams and Faircloth wouldn't be quite so vocal with their
We personally don't approve of this sort of thing. The future

important than the Democratic and Republican parties put together.

should be secondary with elected officials rather than foremost.

Daylight Savings Is Controversial Issue
What little experience Floridians have had with day-
light savings time seems to have made many of them
skeptical about any real benefits.
In general, however, it appears that most people may
be indifferent to it. Those who oppose it, however, are
quite strong in their opposition.
The renewed interest in daylight savings time results
from a federal law in which Congress says that the new
time will go into effect in every state unless contrary action
is taken by the state legislature.
An effort is being made to get a bill introduced in the
next session of the Florida Legislature to exempt Florida
from daylight savings time.
Some people question the wisdom of such an action,
arguing that Florida would be in an awkward position if
all the other states are on the new time during the sum-
mer, late spring and early fall.
Indicative of the division of Floridians on this question
is the action by directors of Ocala-Marion County Chamber
of Commerce last week. After a spirited 'argument, the
Claim Must be Made
For S. S. Benefits
Social Security benefits can nev-
er be paid unless a claim is filed,
John V. Carey, District Manager of
the Panama City Social Security
Office said this week. Many indi-
viduals in this area may be due
Social Security checks because of
the numerous changes that have
been made in the Social Security
An individual who has reached
age 62 may be entitled to some
Social Security checks even though
he is still working, Carey added.
The retirement test applies to all
individuals under the age of 72,
but many individuals have such
low earnings that they may fully,
meet the retirement test even
though they continue to work. A
person who earns no more than
$1500 per year, whether from sal-
ary or self-employment profit, is
considered to be fully retired. In-
dividuals who have earnings of
more than $1500 a year may still
be entitled tosome of their month-
ly checks beginning at age 62.
Widows who have reached age
60 can qualify for benefits based
on the earnings of their deceased
husband, Carey continued. Women
who remarry after age 60 retain
Social Security rights on their de-
ceased husband. Also, ii some in-
stances, women are entitled to
beifits on a former husband if
they were divorced after having
been married to the same man for
20 years or more.
Children of retired, disabled or
deceased parents are entitled to
Social Security checks up to age
22 if they stay in school, Carey in-
dicated. Children who became dis-
abled before age 18 and who are
still disabled can qualify for So-
cial Security checks on the earn-
ings of their parents. Once es-
tablished, the disabled child will
receive his check as long as he
continues to be disabled.
Individuals who had earnings
during 1966 should bring evidence
of the earnings when they file a
Social Security claim. The salaried
person should bring his W-2 form;
the self-employed person should
bring an exact copy of his self-
employment tax return and proof
that the tax was paid.
A Social Security claim must be
filed before any benefits can be
paid, Carey concluded. Protect
your rights to benefits by filing
your claim with your nearest So-
cial Security Office. The Social
Security Office for this area is
located at 1135 Harrison Avenue,
Panama City, Florida 32401. The
telephone number is 763-5331. The

As Comptroller of Florida, I
know from first-hand experience
that the 100 per cent full value
property assessment which was or-

counties of the state has resulted
in severe hardships on many pro-

This is no myth and it is not po-

Needs of the citizens are increas-

of Florida expect to pay their fair
share of taxes And, similarly, the
citizens footing the bills need. to
know that their tax monies are be-
ing wisely spent.
But, regardless of the need, and
regardless of the desirability, the
directors voted to table the matter.
iOne side took note of the extra hour of "daylight"
which would allow more time for recreation each day. The
other side pointed to the serious economic damage to regu-
lar and drive-in theatres.
Notice also was taken of the fact that some school
children are catching buses at daylight now, and daylight

will bring chaos and collapse to the

Just as there were inequities in
the general under assessment of
properties throughout Florida, so
can there be a danger of overas-
sessment. Our taxing officials must
guard against this possibility with
the same intense zeal employed to
reach compliance with the court-
ordered full property valuation.
The legislative program of ad
valorem relief should strengthen
and up-date the existing statutes
to provide for automatic millage
reduction which would work in
conjunction with general reassess-
ment programs to prevent a sand-
bagging of the taxpayer. .
Certainly, government at the lo-
cal level must retain the flexibili-
ty in millage and assessment ra-
tios to offer the citizens increased

sire this action.
Most legislators are acutely
aware of the problem of ad valor-
em tax saturation. Both the House
of Representatives and the Florida
Senate have committees which will
give special consideration to the
necessity of relief.
The office of Comptroller has of-
fered its support and technical as-
sistance to these committees and
will be on hand during the Legisla-
ture to make recommendations de-
signed to tailor needs of the citi-
zens to the reasonable limits of the

A new Q-R (Quick-Recovery) model heats
water three times faster than an old-style,
electric water heater-and faster than
flame-type. So with the same size tank, a
Q-R Flameless delivers at least three
times as much hot water as either!
No need for a bigger-than-average tank to
give you all the hot water you need.
Just a new Q-R Flameless 40-gallon does
it in most homes! And costs little or no
more to buy than ordinary electric models
-and much less than flame-type.
Also, it costs no more to heat a gallon of
water with a Q-R Flameless than with
old-style electric units.You don't pay a
cent more for Q-R's speedy heating.'
With our Money-Back Guarantee,
you can't lose. Don't be short on hot water.
