plished during the next fiscal year.

$593,045 to take the City over the
half million mark for the first
time in history. Clerk Brock point-
ed out that the City will receive
an estimated $330,800.00 from sour-
ces other than city-levied ad va-
lorem taxes next year, leaving an
estimated $262,245.00, to be raised
Last year's 'budget total was

mately a 30 percent increase over

CONSIDER THE SEA GULL
Since the discovery of modem medicine, animals have
played an important part in the curing of mankind's ill-
nesses. Countless thousands of experiments' with various
drugs and compounds have been tested over the years on
animals. Even psychologists have utilized the animal to
.study wlhy creatures form' attitudes of habit, likes and
dislikes and environments.
Possibly we could look to another animal to try and
see why our country is beginning to "lose face" with its
formerly friendly neighbors about the world and why even
some of the citizensof our country are becoming disenchant-
ed with this, the greatest country in all history.
We'll consider the seagull in our experiment.
Saturday afternoon while returning from a fishing trip
-in the Gulf of Mexico, enjoyed by our Sunday School class
on George Holland's Jep II, we noticed one lone seagull
following the boat. Ralph Walton, who was standing be-
side us said, "You can start feeding that seagull, and be-
fore you know it you will have a flock following the boat".
And, there wasn't another gull in sight.
We started throwing crackers to .the gull and he start-
ed diving for the "goodies". By the time we had thrown
about two dozen crackers and eight or ten. slices of bread
overboard, one piece at a time, we had 38 seagulls following
the boat, picking up the free crumbs. We ran out of food
just as we turned at the buoy to go under the -Highland
View bridge. By the time we arrived at the bridge, there
was notaa gull in sight.
We believe that our "friends" are sniping at us and
deserting us for the same reasons the gulls deserted the
chasepof the Jep H ... we had stopped throwing the free
food. We had, their undivided loyalty as long as we would
provide for their needs, but once we stopped they took off.
It may seem sort of far fetched, but there is the pos-
sibility that the 'unrest among our races and our people is
due to the "Great Society" that is being thrust upon us.
Those seagulls would literally have a war 'fighting for a
cracker or a crumb of bread. So much is being provided
for segments of our population seemingly free of
charge, that everyone wants a crumb or two.- In the pro-
cess of gathering the crumbs, we are forgetting ourselves
and doing things we otherwise wouldn't do in order to
draw attention to our needs to our desires.
As bad as the situation is now, if the great Society
continues to grow, we'hate to think of what might happen
when Uncle Sam "runs out of bread". There is' a possi-
ability that our countrymen may desert the country that re-
fuses to feed it any longer, "free of charge".
PUT 'EM TO WORK
More than a few people in this community are proud
of the fact that they "worked their way through college."
They make no secret of the fact that they obtained a higher
education by waiting on tables, tutoring, typing, etc., and
then supplemented that income by working hard at summer
jobs. In short, they got their education the hard way, with-
out depending on federal aid and, in many cases, accepting
little or no family aid. Those we know were not hurt by
the extra effort. Indeed, it made them better qualified to
compete when they left the ivy-covered walls.
Thinking about these good citizens we cannot help
wondering about so many college people of 1967 and hpw
those unwholesome types can spend so much time making
demonstrations, making love, and in general making unmiti-
gated nuisances of themselves. Where do they get the time
for all this hipsterring?
Our sentiments were echoed recently by an engineer-
ing student. Watching a telecast which showed thousands
of disorderly young people milling around in a demonstra-
tion (in the course of which our flag was burned) he shook
his head and remarked:
"I don't get it. How can they do all those things?
March. Smoke pot. Stay up night after night yakking
away and plunking guitars. Making love. Making trips
to demonstrate. These are-students? When do they study'?
In engineering we certainly don't have time for such non-
sense, nor do they have time for it in medicine, law and
other fields. Somebody must have rigged it' so that an
awful lot of college students don't have to do any work."
If those really are college undergraduates we see on
television, it's about time somebody put them to work. If
their, professors can't gi'e them enough studies to keep
them out of mischief, maybe some of their grants and
benefits should be reviewed. With all that time on their
hands, maybe they could use some of it to earn their keep
waiting on tables, washing dishes, etc.
Indeed everybody would benefit if these people had to
do some work on their way through college. And not the
least of the beneficiaries would be the taxpayers who are
supporting a big chunk of the cost of the "education" of
these academic bums.

An editorial writer was wondering the other day: "What has
happened to Spring? The editorial writers usually start about this
time of year to writing about the birds on the wing the flowers
blooming forth .'. the girls becoming prettier the trees put-
ting on a new leafy coat and nary an editorial yet what has
happened to Spring?"
Well of course Spring has come. The calendar said so way
back on March 21. The season is here.
But the signs have changed.
Some students rioted in Houston, Texas, shot a policeman and
killed him the other day while laying down a barrage of sniper
fire across the campus. The students of Harvard rioted a week
or so ago. A flag burning was planned by some students of the
University of California and Dr. Spock got hit in the head with an
egg in front of the White House while extolling that the U. S. fold
up its tents and come home.
Oh, Spring is here all right. The signs show it. But the signs
Our congratulations to the Highland View Fire Department.
This group has banded together into a force now, and has gone
to work on the project of making themselves an effective fire
fighting force. A fine drill was held Friday afternoon which
no doubt provided the men of the group with some valuable
training. Further training will whet this group of men into a
fine fire fighting brigade, and they will learn that they already
have the necessary tools to meei any need of their area, with-
out expenditures of $15,000 for "additional equipment."
But the need for more organization was magnified Saturday
afternoon. A grass fire occurred in Highland View, and, after two
attempts were made to contact the Highland View firemen, and
no answer, the Port St. Joe department was called. This is what
we meant by "lack of organization". Until someone is placed over
this or any other fire department, service cannot be guaranteed.
We've tried two weeks of living with the air un-polluted b3
paper mill smoke. We find that health hasn't fared one bit better.
In fact, we believe that we are the worse for the two weeks of no
pollution. If we continue to keep this pure atmosphere, we will
surely starve to death while enjoying pure air passages.
You know, we have messed around here for the last few months
and here it is, the end of school once again and time for gradua-
Another class is completing its last year of high school and
making the step into adult-hood to sink or swim. And, in spite of
our feeble efforts at preparing them for a life of their own as
ill-equipped from our instruction- as they are most of them
swim ... even those who thought they couldn't.
We have no doubts that this group of youngsters, completing
their high school education, will become sober, responsible citizens
that will make the world a better place in which to live. They may
not be the person who negotiates the peace, but they will be the
adults which make the good, solid, Christian homes, which, after
you think about it, is what makes our nation, and its image, the
greatest of all.

He had planned the future well

Disney World was Walt Disney's
last and greatest dream. It was to

No man in history ever provid-

Lacking the brain and imagina-

It's Possible Your Snoring Habits
Can Be Cured Easily, Doctors Say
About one out of eight Ameri- the sleeper on his side or face can

This means something like 25
million snorers, women as often
The comic literature about snor-
ing is endless. Plays, movies, vau-
deville skits and comics in general
have poked fun at snoring down
through the years.
There's a good. chance that
there's a snorer in your family.
If so, says Today's Health, the mag-
azine of the Americai Medical As-
sociation, you are well aware that
it's not very funny.
4The assorted hisses, gurgles,
buzzes, snorts and raspings of the
snoring nuisance hold the seeds
for the" ruination of an ostensibly
happy marriage. Many married
couples find it necessary to set
up a schedule wherein one spouse
tries to, precede the other in sleep.
Other couples proceed to separate
rooms and possibly even the di,
For the most part snoring is gen-
erated while breathing either in
or out during sleep by several
structures in the nose and throat.
The sounds are due to vibrations
in the soft palate and other soft
structures of the throat in re-
sponse to inflowving and outflow-
The frequency of the vibrations
depends on the size, density and
elasticity of the affected tissues
and on the force of the air flow.
A number of causes of snoring
can be helped and even cured.
Most cases of snoring in children
are cured by removal of enlarged
adenoids and tonsils. A blocked
nose may lead to mouth breathing
and snoring. Sometimes this can
be corrected by minor surgery.
If snoring is caused by nasal con-
gestion due to the common cold,
sinus trouble or hay fever, nose
diops or antihistamines sometimes
can bring relief to the sufferer
and may stop snoring. Many peo-
ple snore only when sleeping on
the back. Any method that keeps
There are factors that may af-
fect the tone of the tissues of the
throat and result in snoring. These
include too much smoking, over-
work, fatigue, obesity and general
poor health. The largest group of
offenders are the elderly, presum-
ably because they lack tissue tone.
If there is a snorer in your fam-
ily who is disrupting the sleep of
others, send him to the family phy-
sician. If there is a definite cause-
and-effect relationship, possibly
something can be dbne about it.
If your doctor cannot' help, the lis-
tener can' wear earplugs, when.
everything else fails.

few fires which are deliberately
set, usually to make gathering fish
bait easier. Gulf County has 10 tb
12% of its fires from lightning.
This is much higher than the aver-
age," Strength continued. Com-

Paul Harvey Tape Is
Heard by Rotarians
A very timely tape recording,
"The Testing Time" by Paul Har-
vey was presented to the Rotary
Club last Thursday by Rotarian M.
Harvey taped the address in 1952
but it is still applicable to the sit-
uation in America today.
Harvey noted that the 'big bomb'
was entrusted to us for our salva-
tion not our destruction. He stated
that in man's recorded history only
eight percent of the time featured
peace in the world.
Harvey noted that the secret of
the success of our nation is what
makes a nation strong: belief in
God, our country and ourselves.
The speaker pointed out that our
seven percent of the population
of the world owns 50% of the
world's good things. He urged that
we, profit from the mistakes of
other decayed nations and keep
our position in the world by not
repeating" these mistakes.
Guests of ) the club were Paul
Donofro of-Marianna and Tommy

Persons Starting To
Work for The First Time
Must Have SS Number
Many young people will be go
ing to work for the, first time this
summer and must have a Socia]
Security account number," Johr
V. Carey, District Manager of the
Panama City Social Security Office;
said this week. All individuals have
always needed 'a Social Security
card "when they worked and this
will continue to be true.
"There are a number of other
Reasons, for obtaining a Social Se-
curity number," Carey added. The
State, Department of Education in
Florida wants all students to have
a Social Security card when they
enter the ninth grade. The military
forces in the United States will
begin using the Social -Security
number rather than a service ser-
ial number in July 1967. Also,
many young people must obtain/
Social Security cards for Federal
tax purposes if they receive income
in their own right, even though
they don't work.
"An individual should keep the
same Social Security number for
his entire life time," Carey con-
tinued. Once a Social Security
number is -assigned to an individ-
Sual that same number will satisfy
all of the purposes for which the
Social Security number may be
needed. For example, the Social
Security number assigned to a two
year old child for tax purposes
will be used by that child when he
enters the ninth grade, if he enters
military service, and no matter
where he works in any of the 50
States or for an American employ-
er outside the United States. You
should use your full correct name
when you apply for a Social Secur-
ity card. This is the name you
were given at birth unless you
have been adopted. It is especially
important that your card shows
your full correct name for school
- purposes, and the military services
Sal;solutely insist that your full cor-
l rect name be on your Social Se-
a curity card. Individuals who change
a their name for any reason should
, contact the nearest Social Secur-
ity office to have a new card is-
sued under the new name but un-
der the same Social Security num-
"Individuals who will have need
for a Social Security number with-
in the next few months should ap-
ply now and avoid any last minute
rush," Carey concluded. Forms to
apply for a Social Security card
are available at your nearest So-
cial Security office. If you live in
a city that does-not have a Social
Security office, you may obtain
the application form at your near-
est post office.
SThe Social Security office for
this area is located at 1135 Harri-
son Ave., Panamna City 32401. The
telephone number is 763-5331. The
office is open Monday through

Glidden Announces Plans To Merge
With SCM Corporation This Week
Band Members Receive Awards
NEW YORK-An agreement, in
principle, to merge SCM Corpora-
tion, New York, and The Glidden
Company, Cleveland, Ohio, was an-
nounced jointly this week by Emer-
son E. Mead, President of SCM,
,and William G. Phillips, President
of The Glidden Company. Under
the proposed terms, SCM would
issue 46/100ths of SCM common
for each share of Glidden common.
Based on the. closing price of
SCM common stock on the New
York Stock Exchange, Monday,
May 15, this represents a price of
$35 per share.for the Glidden com-
Glidden is expected to have ap-
proximately 7,175,000 common
shares outstanding after conver-
sion of preferred stock, indicating
that SCM would issue 3,300,500
shares of its common stock in the
exchange. Based on the price of
SCM common 'on the New York
Stock Exchange at the time of the
announcement, the transaction has
a market value of $251,125,000.
Both companies are listed on the
New York Stock Exchange. -
The merger proposal has been
approved by the directors of each
company, subject to the execution
of the detailed agreement and fi-
nal action of both, companies and
the approval of shareholders.
The $35 per share, value of Glid-
den common stock which would re-
sult from the merger not only
would substantially exceed the
tender offer issued by Greatameri-
ca Corporation for Glidden stock
last week, but would also be tax-
In connection with the announce-
ment, Messrs. Mead and Phillips
stated that the combination of
these two growing companies will
bring new strengths and further di-
versification for shareholders of
both ,companies. The combination
of the scientific capabilities of the
two companies should allow the
combined companies to maintain
leadership in their respective
Glidden President Phillips said,
"The Glidden Company's board of
directors was extremely gratified
to have negotiated the tax-free
merger proposal with SCM Cor-
"We have been striving to pro-
vide a plan for our Glidden share-
holders which would be much su-
perior to the tender offer for Glid-
den stock issued last week. Now
we have reached this agreement
with SCM Corporation, a distin-
guished leader in its industries
and one of the most rapidly grow-
ing corporations in the country.
"We have acted in the best in-
terests, of our shareholders, as we
promised to do, and, they stand to
gain much more from this tax-free
merger proposal than from tender-
ing their stock," Phillips said.
SCM is a leading manufacturer
of electrostatic office copy ma-
chines, typewriters, calculators,
telecommunication devices, data-
processing equipment, e 1 e c tric
household appliances and continu-
ous flow-processing equipment for
industrial applications. SCM sales
in its fiscal year ended June 30,
1966, amounted to $240,560,000,
and its sales for the nine months
ended March 31, 1967, were $201,-
The Glidden Company is a lead-
ing manufacturer of coatings, re-
sins, chemicals and foods. Its net
sales in the fiscal year ended Au-
gust 31, 1966, were $351,888,000,
and its sales for the six months
ended February 28, 1967, were
$173,146,000, compared to $158,-
052,000 for the same period last
Glidden will continue to be op-
erated after the merger under the
direction of Mr. Phillips, and the
present management and person-
nel. In addition, Mr. Phillips and
his designees will become members
of the board of SCM Corporation
and its key board committees.
