Masonic Lodge dignitaries from all over Flor-

noon to install a corner stone on the new Gulf

Placid in an air-tight container behind the
corner stone were various records, pictures, and
items of this age to make the corner stone a sort
of "time capsule."

H.E.W. Charges School Board With
Failure To Comply With Rights Act
Sharks Get First Win; Down Baker High 35-7
During -a run-in with people whom J. Edgar Hoover
might call disciples of the "gospel of nihilism" we took a
Christian stance, insisting that God is man's last hope. We
were interrupted by a bearded churl who said with a sneer,
"It's like you're sick, man;"
He wasn't far off. We are sick! For one thing, we are
sick of unwashed, unruly potheads who shoot from the lip
at our generation.
We are sick of living with unflagging tensions that are
due to the condition of our cities. We are appalled at watch-
ing metropolitan areas roar into ruin while human pack rats
carry off people's hard-earned property, joking with each
other as they do it-and police stand by under orders to
hold their fire.
We are sick of hearing people say it had to be this way
in order for the Negro to get his rights. Deeply as we de-
plore the injustices done to Negroes, we cannot believe that
turning our great American cities into torches will right
We are sick from the feeling, which refuses to go away,
that someone is out to make this not a better world but a
far worse one. Whether there is a "conspiracy" afoot we
will leave to those in the know; or whether the Communists
have a big hand in this business we can't be sure-even if
we have the thought that the Communists might not want
to let this opportunity pass without setting a few fires. But
we are certain that anarchy threatens to overwhelm order
in this country if our present madness is not stopped.
We are sick, too, of the way our government seems to
approach this problem. It appears to think that if we pour
enough money over the conflagration it will go out. This
seems a sort of insanity. We favor every community's gett-
ing rid of slums and we cry loud for civil rights for all peo-
ple, colored, colorless, or multicolored. But, in heaven's
name, what has civil rights got to do with Negroes' making
Negroes homeless through the use of Molotov cocktails?
All authentic civil-rights leaders denounce these slaugh-
terous rampages in our streets. Only the out-and-out revo-,
lutionaries-those fireheads who cry for black men to take
up arms against "whitey"-shout in favor of this horror.
If these men are civil rights workers, Charlie McCarthy
was a Marxist!
We are sick, we repeat, at our government's idea that
money can end anarchy in our streets. Do you stop hood-
lums by paying them to stop? The government's very
thought of trying to stem criminality with a dollar sign
appears to imply that the vast majority of Negroes are

rebels against the democratic order and can be pacified
with sufficient funds. Any intelligent person, black or
white, is aware that the great body of Negroes in America
are simply people trying to live normal lives, asking only
that they be treated as human beings equal to all other
human beings. They do not follow the black-power revolu-
tionaries. And the Negro leader who said that all Negroes
have to be either radicals or Uncle Toms spoke out of either
demagoguery or stupidity. The people who burned millions
of dollars' worth of property in Detroit were not repre-
sentative of the majority of Negroes in that city; in fact, the
Negroes were the ones who lost the most.
We are sick of hearing that civil-rights injustices trig-
gered all this insane violence. Some cities that have tried
hard to obtain justice for the Negro, that even felt they
were approaching the day of justice, were hard hit by the
murderous goings-on. One governor maintains that less
than 5 per cent of the Negro population in a riot-rent city
in his state brought off the violence there-and most of
them had criminal records! Almost to a man the mayors
of these tortured cities agree that the destroyers in the
streets were scarcely interested in civil rights as such.
We are sick of observing civil officials who think they
can control an inferno with a water gun. The law must op-
erate, right in those mad streets. It must be unflinching,
impartial, and authoritative. No man, black or white or
in-between, is safe when the law is violated with impunity.
We are also sick of clergymen who manage somehow
to exonerate the hoodlum rioters and put the blame for
the calamity on countless innocent people who have always
stood ready to assist the downtrodden. Even when we
manage to love everybody, a burning city is still a fear-
full sight. God's love never lessens his demand for order.
That committed Christian, Paul, insisted that God had
sanctified the sword of Caesar's law and made its bearer
His minister (Romans 13).
We are sick of those pulpits and religious publications
that in seeking a solution to our problems advocate a
compromise with evil rather than pronouncing judgment
upon all wrong and presenting the Gospel of grace, which
can give men a motivation for ethical living in the human
We are sick of experts who offer nothing but pacifica-
tion and prosperity to guerilla terrorists as they cry louder
and louder to our world, "B'urn, baby burn!"

Leigh Magliery, Publicity Chair-

that it is too lengthy to print but
may I say that it sounds like a
very interesting program. Although
Kissimmee is quite a distance from
here, some of our Gulf County peo-
ple might possibly be interested in
attending. There will be art shows,
an art auction, sidewalk conces-
sions, square dances, teen-age
dances and the following plays
will be performed:
"A Stone in the Road", by Leon
Lukaszewski and performed by the
"Aria de Capo" by Edna St. Vin-

Footlight Theatre Guild.

Perhaps you, and others in the
community, wonder what has hap-
pened to the Port St. Joe Little
Theatre since our debut last sum-
mer. We have begun numerous
plays but have not been able to
bring any of them to completion
due to the lack of people willing
to take part. This is understandable
as it does require a great deal of
time and work and most people do
not have that much time available
to give. However, due to the won-
derful support we received from
the community, we do have funds
available. So we have had numer-
ous contacts with the Director of
the Florida State University Thea-
tre. It is our hope that we can set
up a program, sponsored by Little
Theatre, whereby the University
Players can come to Port St. Joe
and perform for us at least twice
a year. Nothing definite has been
established yet, but we are hopeful
that it soon will be a reality and
we can announce a definite date.

Tips Given for
Blue Shield of Florida handles
almost all claims from this area
for repayment under medicare doc-
tor bill insurance. John V. Carey,
District Manager of the Panama
City Social Security Office, has
been receiving periodic reports
from Blue Shield regarding some
of the things wrong with the
claims being filed.
Carey advised this week that
payment of many claims is being
slowed up because medicare iden-
tification numbers are not shown
on the request for payment form.
This has been most frequent on
claims submitted by beneficiaries.
"Even though the number may
seem like a very simple item, it
is very important to the medicare
carrier," Carey said. "Without the
medicare identification number,
it is very difficult for the carrier
to find out if you are actually
signed up for doctor bill insurance
or if you have met your $50 deduc-
tible for the year."
Beneficiaries are advised to be
sure they copy, their number from
their red, white, and blue medicare
card in the blank at the upper
right-hand corner of the request
for payment form before sending
it to Blue Shield. While the miss-
ing medicare identification num-
ber has been noted as one of the
most frequent errors on the claims
forms, signatures, addresses and
other items have also been report-
ed missing from some forms.
"There are a couple of import-
ant things for beneficiaries who
pay their doctor bills and send in
their, own request for payment
forms to remember," Carey said.
"Be careful to fill in all blanks
on the top half of the form and be
sure to either have your doctor
complete the bottom part of the
form or enclose his itemized re-
Carey reminded beneficiaries
that he was talking only about
doctor bill claims where the "pay-
ment to the patient" method was
used. Under the "assignment" or
"payment to the doctor" method,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Think we are rushing the season? Not
a bit. Today is New Year's Day In the year of the Israelites
it is the first day of 5728 today. The Jews blow horns too on this
day in history. It is traditional to herald in this day-New Year's
Day-with the blowing of the "shofar", a ram's horn.
One of those things you would never know, if you didn't read
Want a good excuse not to let Junior have a BB gun?
Tell him the Army needs them!
The Army has taken up the favorite weapon of kids the world
over and finade a training weapon out of it. They're teaching all
those Army guys to be "fast draws". It seems that too many men
are getting killed when they run upon an enemy at close quarters
unexpectedly. An hour or two a day with a BB gun for a few weeks
is supposed to make the GI a crack shot from the hip. They say that
a couple of hours straight shooting at a disc thrown in the air with
a BB gun will have the marksman hitting it eight times out of ten.
The war must be served, but what a price for the kids to have
to pay giving up their BB guns!
Do you know how much a billion dollars is?
I know I know it's enough. But do you really know
how much or how many one dollar bills it would take to make a
billion dollars? We heard it explained the other day, and we'll pass
If you had a billion one dollar bills and joined them together
end to end, you would have a long string of one dollar bills (no-
body disputes this). Then, you take the string to Cape Kennedy
and tie it on to the tail of a rocket just before it goes into orbit.
When the rocket orbits the Earth for the third time and is approach-
ing the Cape for its fourth Jrip completion, the tail of your string
of one billion, one dollar bills will just be clearing the launching
pad. Yes, that's enough!
And the FEA is asking the State of Florida to spend two of
these trips around the world without making up a plan or a sur-
vey. I can't figure how intelligent people, such as the FEA leaders,
can expect the State of Florida or any other political subdivision
to spend a half billion dollars on the say-so of a committee who
doesn't have to answer to the people. This, in effect, would give
the FEA a blank check, with no strings attached. Business just
doesn't operate this way.
We were arguing this point with a fellow the other day when
he pointed out that many surveys have already been made and are
currently gathering dust in Tallahassee. They could be used.
True, true .. but if these surveys are over four years old
they are too out of date to use. And, again, we hardly think any
of, the surveys already made were ambitious enough to include the
proper, judicious expenditure of a half billion dollars.
According to the daily newspapers, "Crisis Sunday" fell flat on
its conjunction insofar as creating interest among the parents of
the state was concerned. We think it was a good idea. Maybe not
in the midst of a crisis, but a periodic examination of school facilities
would probably be a good thing for the future.
We also note by the papers that the FEA has said the lack of
interest by parents has given them an excuse to walk out and resign.
We think that the FEA was looking for a large turn-out to give the
appearance of public support to the FEA demands and claims which
would strengthen their decision to walk out.
We think that if the FEA has made up its mind to call for a
walkout, nothing is going to stop them. That is, nothing in the
way of public opinion.

Gardening In Florida...

October, among other things, is
the month of marriages. It is sec-
ond to June in popularity.
If prior commitments prevent
marriage, you can at least fall in
love with gardening, because grow-
ing flowers won't make you a biga-
After sowing the seeds in flats,
and while you are waiting for them
to reach transplanting size, pre-
pare the flower beds.
First turn the soil with a spade
or other tool. Remove all weeds,
sticks, stones, dog bones and other
debris and then rake the area into
a loose mixture for good aeration

tn oth 'flower arden this' fail'
and winter, now's the time to plan
the uplantirig layout.
For best posing of colbr, locate
the annual flowers so they bloom
in front of a back drop of green
foliage. This technique will make
the colors show up vividly.
Also in selecting the plot, re-
member that for the best color"
most annuals must have a full
five-hour sunbath day.
Next comes the vexing problem
of what to plant. Choosing plants
by heights is one problem-solving
approach. Some taller growing
annuals for the back areas of the
garden are delphinium, larkspur,
cleome and hollyhock.
In the center rows and toward
the front consider the medium
height plants. Petunias, calendulas,
ageratum, didicus, gypsophilla, li-
naria and carnations are examples.
For low edging you might use ally-
ssum, verbena, phlox or some of
the dwarf nasturtiums.
With up to 100 annuals to choose
from ,it shouldn't be a problem to
fill the garden with many kinds of
colorful plants. '

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
"" r ABOUT YOUR PRESCRIPTION:
The human body is an efficient organism. It runs like clock-
work with each vital part doing its job. When one of these
parts breaks down or a foreign substance attacks, the body
reacts to the blow in a way all its own. Chemicals in the dis-,
eased area begin immediately to repair the break. Often
these are not enough and chemicals from other parts of the
body are utilized. When this happens a chemical imbalance
is caused. Your doctor examines you to determine the
amount ant; type of chemicals involved. He may feel it nec-
essary to add chemicals to your system in order to defeat
the disease... this is a prescription: By his diagnosis he
can determine which chemicals will do you the most good.
Some systems are stronger or better equipped to handle
disease. They require less medication. Others need more
outside help. Each person is different. That is why you
should never use another's prescription nor allow someone
else to use yours.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices:
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always depend upon, bring your prescriptions to
