Five Accidents In Port St. Joe
During New Year Week End
While the nation was patting it-
self on the back for having less
automobile accidents than predict-
ed by national authorities during
the New Year long week end, Port
St. Joe and vicinity went on an
accident binge with five mishaps
occurring New Year's eve and New'
Year's day in and around Port St.
The first accident occurred at
12:10 p.m. Sunday when a 1965 se-
dan driven by James H. Lancaster
crossed Garrison Avenue at the
Eighth Street intersection in front
of a 1968 sedan driven by John
Robert Smith..The two machines
collided with extensive damage to
both cars. No injuries were re-

man guard, led the scoring for
Washington, 'with 21 points. Char-
les Beachum added 13.

night and wound up in Port St.

ed just before noon Friday after
attempting a get-away in a sto-

in Port St. Joe.

had a length of pipe and another

up Fite. Griffin and Fite then
went to the intersection of SR

No Room For Negotiations
We see by the papers where the teachers of Florida
have again stated, in certain terms, just what they will
do if certain conditions are not met by the State of Florida
by a certain time.
And so, we are beginning a second round of the crisis
we had back in the fall ... a crisis that even the leaders
of the Floi-da Education Association said was wrong and
put the teachers in a position of not being able to bargain.
We were shocked when we read that for the second
time, the FEA had voted to put forth an inflexible line of
position and conditions .. a line that places the teachers
in an awkward position and the Legislature of the State
of Florida in a position they will not tolerate.
If things in -the State of Florida are to work out for
the school system in a manner that will keep the schools
running, there is no need for the Legislature to meet. The
State must just go ahead and implement the findings of
the Committee on Quality Education or at least they
should. They should because it is senseless to call out the
Legislature if our only desire is to keep the schools open.
The FEA has already told us this. "Either accept the rec-
commendations of the Committee or we close the schools".
Why meet, and spend the money for a session when only
one decision will appease the FEA? This is bargaining?
This-is government by compromise, and by seeking the will
of the people? This is the American way? No sir.
We firmly believe that the hard attitude of the FEA
_during the last session of the Legislature had as much as
anything to do with the failure of a better education pro-
gram to make the scene. You just don't push Americans.
You may lead them, but you don't push them. And Flori-
dians are Americans. They will not be pushed.
We think the FEA is once again placing the teachers
in a position which will embarras them; a position which
will ultimately detract rather than add to their bargain-
Had the FEA came out publicly and endorsed the pro-
gram as outlined by the Committee on Quality Education,
we think their position would be far more effective, rather
than their present avowed position of billigerance.
One thing's for sure, the Legislature will not, in all
probability, accept the school program as presented. They
are bound to make some changes. In all probability, the
-changes will be better for Florida and the school system,
rather than water it down. But, the FEA is committed to
walk out if the program is not adopted as is.
THE "TWICE AS" GAME
Back in 1960, when Senator Eugene McCarthy first
, fancied himself a national political figure, his chief rivals
for the Democratic nomination were John F. Kennedy, Hu-
bert Humphrey and Stuart Symington.
In the Senate cloakroom it has been recalled that Mc-
Carthy said in 1960 that he was twice as Catholic as Jack
Kennedy, twice as liberal as Hubert Humphrey and twice
as bright as Stuart Symington. That didn't make him
very many friends in the Senate, and now the quote has
been recalled by his colleagues who have made a game
of adding to the list.
Many of the additions are unprintable, it must be said,
but here are a few of the "twice as" attributes ascribed to
Senator McCarthy by his fellow Senators. He is, they say:
Twice as long-winded as Senator Fulbright.
Twice as arrogant as Dr. Spock.
Twice as confused as Clifford Case.

MORTAR of AMERICA
The mortar with which America has been built is
loyalty. Loyalty is more than a matter of faithful serv-
ing; it is an element of personal integrity, a revelation
of character. By examining his capacity for loyalty you
can take the true measure of a man.
Elbert Hubbard once wrote: "If you work for a man,
in heaven's name work for him; speak well of him and
stand by the institution he represents. Remember-an
ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you
must growl, condemn, and eternally find fault, resign your
position and when you are on the outside, danmi to your
heart's content. But as long as you are a part of the in-
stitution don't condemn it. If you do, the first high wind
that comes along will blow you away, and probably you
will never know why.",
-The Little Gazette
There is a nice little story we might do well to remem-
ber when we are tempted to shirk our civic duties. It is
the one about the General in World War II who heaped
lavish praise upon the driver of his jeep, a buck private
who was driving carefully over thickly mined roads. "Well,
General," said the private, "I look at it this way, I'm in
this jeep, too."
Stevenson spent a week end in
Connecticut with his old friends,
Senator and Mrs. William Ben-
ton. With him he had a copy of
a message entitled Desiderata
with a notation that the original
was 'Found in Old Saint Paul's
Church, Baltimore, dated 1692.'
He read this aloud and indicated
that he was considering its use
as his Christmas card this year.
The records of Saint Paul's do
not reveal how the passage came
to be connected with the church
nor who the author was. It is an-
other expression of the person-
ality of a man who dedicated his
life to the cause of peace."
The reverse side of the card
reads: "DESIDERATA" and its
"Go placidly amid the noise
and the haste, and remember
what peace there may be in si-
lence. As far as possible with-
out surrender be on good terms
with all persons. Speak your
truth quietly and clearly, and lis-
ten to others, even the dull and
ignorant; they too have their sto-
ry. Avoid loud and aggressive
persons, they are vexations to
the spirit. If you compare your-
self with others you may become
vain and bitter; for always there
will be greater and lesser per-
sons than yourself. Enjoy your
achievements as well as your
plans. Keep interested in your
own career, however humble; it
is a real possession in the chang-
ing fortunes of time. Exercise
caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what
virtue there is; many persons
strive for high ideals; and every-
where life is full of heroism. Be
yourself. Especially do not feign
affection. Neither be cynical
about love; for in the face of all
aridity and disenchantment it is
as perennial as the grass. Take
kindly the counsel of the years,
g r a c e fully surrendering the
things of youth. Nurture strength
of spirit to shield you in sudden
misfortune. But do not distress
yourself with imaginings. Many
fears are born of fatigue and
loneliness beyond a wholesome
discipline, be gentle with your-
self. You are a child of the
universe no less than the trees
and the stars; you have a right
to be here. And whether or not

Midget Investments That Yield
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
~'4 'r~"' ~
Well, here we are back on the job again after a week and a
half vacation. We got out of the hospital Thursday morning at
10:00 a.m. and came to work, but had to knock it off and go home
about 2:00 p.m. But Friday, we came back a second time. We took
a jaunt up the street to see John Blount Friday morning. He had
the same operation we did and was out two weeks. We had to do
a little bragging since we it had been only eight days since we had
been to work. But, John was out and we couldn't make it back
the second time.
B. A. Collier, Ray, Frenchie and Willie did a pretty good
job last week in getting the paper out by themselves. They prov-
ed one thing there is no sense in us missing our vacation
year after year we can go ahead and take it and let them
get the paper out.
Last Wednesday night, Mrs. McClamma and Mrs. Booth, out
at the hospital got their hands on a paper somehow or other, and
came into my room about 10:00 p.m. with a hypodermic needle
about eight inches long and about an inch and a half thick. "We're
going to show you just how good we are at giving shots", they said.
We got out of that one by the skin of our teeth.
You do a lot of reading in the hospital. We read of two sta.
tistics that proved to be very interesting. Did you know that there
were 9,006 Americans killed in Vietnam last year? That's a lot
isn't it. But, we shouldn't be surprised at the number, since this
figure is being used' daily to explain why we should get out of
Vietnam Protecting the possible future of the South Pacific
nations from encroaching Communism just isn't worth the Amer.
ican lives it is costing.
But, on the other hand, Americans killed 53,000 on the high-
ways last year. And, while this statistic stares us in the face,
you can stir all kinds of righteous indignation if someone is hauled
up in court for speeding, driving drunk or breaking some other
traffic code designed for the protection of precious life.
On the one hand, we can shudder at expending lives to main-
tain the most precious thing of all ... freedom; but we can
throw away lives at the rate of five times as fast and puff up
to the exploding point with indignation at anything designed to
save a few more of these valuable lives. We are especially indig.
nant at any law which- deters us from-showing off the blinding
speed we paid for in our'autp the quickness of taking a curve
our new wide-track tires allows us or when we exercise our
"individual rights" to drive off down the highway, pie-eyed, and
a threat to everyone else around us. It just doesn't make sense.
Our sense of values is warped.
We applaud Chief Walter Hendley of Miami. We think he
has the right idea in threatening all acts of violence against the
law with the warning that such threats will be met by an effective
deterrent shotguns and dogs. If human beings are, going to '
.act like animals, then they must be dealt with as animals. If more
police officers throughout the nation would assume this "get tough"
attitude with those who live to disturb the peace and advocate over-
throw of local authority, America would once again become the
"land of the brave" rather than the "land of the afraid".

Roxanne is one of a family
of six who are part of a con-
tinuing research project under
way at the March of Dimes
Birth Defects Center at the
University of Oregon Medical
School, Portland. The others
involved are her parents,
Dan and Bonita Myrick, her
brothers, Rory, 7, and Roberti
5, both of whom are mentally
deficient, and a sister, Rhonda,
11, also mentally damaged and
living in a state institution.
Roxanne's father explains
something of the problem from
the viewpoint of a perplexed
"My wife and I have been
told that we may have passed
on to Roxanne a legacy that
might cause her to give. birth
to retarded children, as my
wife 'and I have. The. geneti-
cists tell us that the chances-
are 2 in 3 that she has inherited
a faulty gene. If she marries a
man with the same faulty gene"
--and the chances of that are
remote but not astronomical-
each time she. has a child the
odds will.be 1 in 4 that her
;liby will be retarded, like her,
brothers and sister."
At age 13 Roxanne does not
spend a great deal of time
thinking about marriage. But
how .much does this merry-
eyed child know of her prob-
able genetic inheritance?
"Roxanne already knows
that she is almost unquestion-

known recessive gene,, just as
her parents are," her mother
explains. "The child certainly
could not keep from asking
us questions. For instance, she
knows that Rory and Robert
don't act like other small boys.
And, as with all of us. in the
family, .she has 'given, blood
samples many times 'at the
March of Dimes Birth Defects
Center in Portland.
"When the time comes for
marriage, we would suggest
to Roxanne that, she ask her
fiance to work up as complete
a family tree as possible,"
the mother says. "'The Idea
would be to check out whether,
in his background, there was

Save, Your Pot Plants
by HERVEY SHARPE
Agricultural Ext. Service
University of Florida
Don't toss out that pot of holiday
poinsettia until the last leaf drops
and the final red bract droops atop
a spaghetti-like stem.
Like a red-headed maiden with-
out make-up the plant can be revit-
alized into a marvel of beauty with
The plant will show brilliant
color next winter if you follow
these tips from Dr. E.- W. McElwee,
Agricultural Extension Service hor-
First, store the pot, plant and
all, in an out-of-the-way place and
forget about it until about the mid-
dle ,of March.
This careless treatment is in-
tended to hibernate the plant dur-
ing the frosty days while the
shriveling top feeds the sleeping
Don't water the dormant plant.
But,so it won't dry'out too much,
lay the potted plant on its side in
a cool dry place. Under the back
porch is an ideal place. If you live
on a concrete slab,, try storing the
sleeping plant in that shady cor-
ner of the carport.
When spring comes, tenderly a-
wake the plant by sloughing off the
dead top and by placing the roots
in a new bed of rich soil. You can
grow the new plant in last .sea-.
son's pot, but the poinsettia will
be happier if you set it in the soil
where it can flex its roots better
than in the confines of a pot.
If you did not get a gift of pion-
settias for Christmas, it is. easy to
establish planting of the holiday
ornamental by .purchasing potted
stock from a local nurseryman.
However, some green thumb op-
erators feel that- they have better
luck if they sneak hardwood cut-
tings from a neighbor's yard fol-
lowing the flowering season.
You can root hardwood poinset-
tia stalks by punching holes in the
desired location, inserting three
quarters of each of the woody cut-
tings into the soil and pressing the
soil firmly around the base. Be
sure to keep the soil moist. Mulch-
ing around the cuttings will help
you maintain moisture, soil tem-
perature and weed-free conditions
for rooting and growth.
If you prefer to propagate by
softwood cuttings, put off the pro-
ject until around June. Remem-
ber, it's important to keep humid-
ity high around the cuttings dur-
ing the rooting process.
There are a number of poinset-
tias that will grow out of doors. If
you desire red-bracted, propagate
such plants as fireball, Indianapolis
Red, Albert Ecke, oak leaf or Mrs.
Paul Ecke. For color combination
mingle the red planting with Ecke
white or a pink variety.
Poinsettias will grow on a wide
range of soils, including sand,
muck, marl, rocky soil and clay. In
spite of the wide adaptability, the
plants will present you a better
show of color if you take proper
care of them., I
Fertilizer application is import-
ant. Apply about 11 pounds of a
good garden fertilizer per 100
square feet of plant space in early
spring, again in June and perhaps
in mid-summer if there are heavy
Pruning is the secret of a canopy
of color next Christmas.
As each sprout reaches 12 inches
long, pinch it back to six inches.
Continue this cruel treatment to all
sprouts until the middle of Septem-
ber. Then stop to give the plant
tips a chance to set their bracts
of color petals.
Poinsettias show their color ac-
cording to day length and temper-
ature. A plant near a lighted win-
dow or a street light often refuses:
to color up like a neighboring
plant in a nearby darker corner.

Enactment of'the realty transfer
tax in lieu of the sporting goods

820 adopted by the 1967 legisla-
ture. The federal government re-
pealed the realty transfer tax ef-
fective January 1, 1968, and the
state imposed it at the state level
to finance purchase of outdoor
The Revenue Commission col-
ledted the 5% sporting goods tax.

Here* s wiinng form of Cees Verkerk of Holland, one of the world's fastest skaters.
GRENOBLE, FRANCE Skaters practice on what may be the world's fastest
ice at this French Alpine town, site of the February Win ter Olympics. A special
mineral-free ice is being used, produced by new Culligan water conditioning equip-
ment. Deionized water, normally used for industrial purposes, such as washing of
electronic components, contains less than 2 parts per million of dissolved minerals.
The potential importance of low solids ice was first noticed by the Russians whose
skating times were faster just after a rain. The simple scientific explanation is that
as hard water freezes its minerals separate, making ice uneven in texture and hard-
ness and causing the skaters' blades to become dull.

The Church of the Nazarene in
1967 had notable gains in member-
ship, stewardship and in Sunday
School enrollment. Also in 1967,
participation in the Vietnam war
made its sharpest impact on the de-
nomination, it. was reported this
week at church world offices in
Kansas City, Mo.
World membership climbed to a
total of 453,187 persons a net
gain of 20,470 over a year ago. Sun-
day school enrollment increased to
983,525-a gain of 57,000 over 1966.
A Per Capita Mark
Per capital giving was a record
$190.13-an increase of $10.43
above the previous peak of $179.70
Giving for all purposes reached
$69,792,571-an increase of $4,897,-
102 over 1966.
Mirroring the war impact, the
names of seven Nazarenes killed
in Vietnam were added to the War
Memorial plaque in 1967. This
made a total of 16 gold stars on the
Florida Economy Good
Reports C of C
The principal indicators of Flor-
ida's economy stand well above
1966 as the year-end approaches
and provide a good running-start
into 1968, the Florida State Cham-
ber of Commerce reported in 1967's
final issue of its Weekly Business
"Improvement in Income and a
gain in jobs are especially indica-
tive of future growth. Although
annual totals for 1967 aren ota in,
enopgh data are available to in-
dicate trend levels.
"Personal income of Floridians
is running 11 per'cent-over 1966.
The index for the number of per-
sons on wage and salary payrolls
(excluding farm workers) stood at
187 in October, the latest available
data. This. compares with 181 in Oc-
tober 1966. Manufacturing employ-
ment shared this gain in a five-
point advance in index and payrolls
of manufacturing plants well over
"Consumer spending this year is
running 7 per cent thead of last
year. The sale of farm products is
up 4 per cent and gasoline gallon-
age sales have gained 5 per cent.
"Over-all business volume is up
9 per cent as measured by bank
debits, that is, total checks written.
Debit levels in the state's larger
cities-are all up and ranzgs from 3
to 4 per cent over 1966.
"It is reassuring to note the num-
ber of incorporations of new bus
inesses in Florida is at last moving
ahead of 1966 after many months
"Still a problem, although spot
ty throughout the state, is the con
struction industry and sales related
to the industry.
"Most of the gains this year were
slightly below last year's increases
Too, they are gross and doubtless
will be shaved by the cost-profil
squeeze and by increased taxes."
French Style Peas
The French are noted for
.their petits pois (small peas)
cooked with a pinch of sugar
to bring out the garden fresh
flavor of the peas and with only
the water that clings to a few
lettuce leaves. An American
adaptation of the French tech-
nique is to cook peas, (fresh or
frozen) in the barest amount of
water and with the addition of
about two teaspoons of light
corn syrup to a pound of peas
shelled. Season with salt and
margarine. Add a pinch of tar-
ragon or chervil, if desired.

Our State Board of Pharmacy exercises control over all
pharmacies within our State by the granting or withholding
of licenses. Anyone wishing to operate a pharmacy must
earn a Registered Pharmacist's license. The applicant must
demonstrate .his willingness to comply with our high State
standards of practice. Our State law also requires that a
pharmacist keep his prescription records for a number'of
years. These files... of every prescription he fills... must
be open to inspection by the State Board of Pharmacy at
all times. In addition, the Federal government has legis.
lated specific laws for control of narcotics and adulterated
or misbranded pharmaceuticals. The various States ,have
also passed laws dealing with labeling. With this protection.
by-law, policed by pharmacists themselves throughrthe
Boards of Pharmacy, pharmaceutical standards are kept at
a uniformly high level throughout the country.
