The County retained $8,642 un-

failure of materials to arrive on

claims for the extra days of exten-

PAGE TWO 'THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, JANUARY 11,'1968
As expected, we received some static from last week's
editorial. but this didn't change our opinion in the mat-
ter df the f Florida Education Association and their state-
ment to call teachers out on strike if the suggestions of the
Committee on Quality Education are not adopted by the
Legislature, as presented.
We noted in the papers this past week that the FEA
references to a strike are listed "if an ACCEPTABLE pro-
grain is not forthcoming ." But last week their strikes
conditions were.based on passage of the package as pre-
sented by the Committee. There is a difference. And we
could no go along with last week's statement.
In making a judgement on the FEA's move, you must
first be familiar with what the Committee on Quality Edu-
cation is presenting. We have not read it word for word
but we have read the weekly bulletins of a condensed na-
ture put out by the Committee. We go along with the FEA
in-endorsing the program as outlined. But we would like
to know a little more about some of the programs the
appointive "Super Board" and appointive district super-
intendents, for instance, before we could go along complete-
ly with these two measures. Then there is the matter of
financing. Financing methods are not outlined in the Com-
We think the FEA should look at these items too. If
they are unacceptable for better education, then they should
be changed. But the FEA has already committed itself
on the package as'presented. Their mind is made up be-
fore, all of the ramifications are discussed by state-wide
As a "for instance", we call to your attention an ar-
ticle in Sunday's paper based on statements made by Sen.
Tom Slade of Jacksonville. In this article it was brought
out that changes recommended by the Committee will call
for changes in the Constitution. This calls for advertising
for four weeks, calling an election, and holding an election.
It stands to reason that this couldn't be done by the March
1 deadline ... even if the Legislature started off at a dead
gallop on this matter. But the FEA has already commit-
ted itself to strike if the package isn't accepted by March
1. Would the .FEA advocate abandoning due process of
law in this matter? We can't.
As we said, by and large we agree that the plan is
good; we agree with the PEA that it should be adopted, but
only;, after discussion and changes where necessary; We
agree with. the FEA that changes are needed.
We don't agree with the FEA's call for a strike at a
certain date if the plan as it now reads isn't accepted -
even though the 'Florida Constitution will prohibit such a
-plan from being adopted by the March 1 deadline.
We would join the FEA in endorsing the plan. We
would join the FEA in promoting the plan. We would
join the FEA in improving the plan.
But we cannot join the FEA in demanding impossible
A HERITAGE FOR THE WORTHY
Above all else, 1967 appeared to be a year when the
verities were questioned-in politics, in economics, in re-
ligion and in virtually very other element of the structure
of present-day society. What does it all mean? No one
really seems to know. Some claim the tearing down of old
standards reflects what might be called a healthy renais-
sance of advanced thought. Others view with foreboding
a trend they feel is leading to a moral breakdown and

Sometimes their judgments of coming events are ludi-

the recent statement of one of this country's leading fi-
nancial authorities that devaluation of the British pound

was so fundamentally reassuring as to make a crisis im-
probable. By the time this particular forecast was in

knows what the future holds for the monetary systems of
Out of all the confusion of 1967, one fact has become
clearly obvious self-government itself is on trial. This
is so because the very truths which are the mainstay of
self-government are being altered or swept away one after
another-truths that were once called "self-evident". These
truths have to do with financial responsibility, the integrity
of the family, the inviolate rights of persons and property
under the law and concepts of individual self-reliance and
initiative that are inseparable from freedom under represen-
tative government. A gradual decline in respect for these
prerequisites of liberty was never more, apparent in the
observation of many people than during the crucial
months of 1967.
Outwardly, the United States is invincible. But, the
founding fathers warned nearly 200 years ago that the
greatest danger to the American experiment in free govern-
ment could well come from within. A debauched currency, a
weakening pride in individual independence and the gradual
ascendancy of state authority are undeniably changing the
outlook for constitutional government as we have known it
in the United States. Few now living have the capacity to
view the present era as it will, be recorded in the history
books at some distant timne in the future. Our present civi-
lization, and more specifically our own country, measured
by material progress and the potential for future progress,
opens a vista that staggers the imagination. The precepts
under which civilization has advanced to this point, and
which have brought a greater measure of well-being to more
people than has ever been known in the world before, must
have a validity that the hippies, the malcontents and the
anti-American demonstrations have failed to perceive.
No political party, no single group of citizens is solely
to blame for the dismal drift that (has put self-government
on trial, and as the elections of 1968 approach, we should
expect no miracles from our elected representatives. They
but reflect the temper and, attitudes of the electorate. The
signs became abundant during 1967 that a turning point has
been reached in the affairs of the world and 'of our country.
As we enter 1968, everyone of us should resolve to be worthy
of the heritage of self-government a heritage for which
500,000 men in Viet Nam are laying their lives on the line.
Most of them were enacted in the
early days of the automobile and
were intended to protect and safe-
guard the public from the dan-
gerous motor, vehicles that were
appearing on our highways at the
turn of the century. Vehicles that
traveled at breakneck speeds of
15 to 20 miles an hour endangered
pedestrians and livestock.

Demanding Impossible Things
NOTES FROM THE
"A Glimpse of Canaan" concerns
a man who because of combat in
World War TI is forced to look
deeply into himself to find mean-
ing in his life. Jim Ferris left his
home in Canaan, Vermont, and re-
turned many many years later
with a young son and a failed mar-
riage. It is then that the moment
of truth comes to him after an act
of violence. Robert P. Hansen is
the author of this novel which may
be found at your public library.
"The Land of the Golden Moun-.
tain" was written by C. Y. Lee, a
Chinese writer who has lived in
the U. S. for 25 years and is the
author of the well-known "Flower
Drum Song". The new novel takes
place in 1850 in San Francisco. Mai
Mai is a lovely young girl disguised
as a young boy so that she can be-
come, unknown to him, Mr. Carna-

New Hampshire produced the
most hilarious regulation of all
with a ruling that read, "When
two motor vehicles meet at an in-
tersection, each one shall come to
a full stop and neither shall pro-
ceed until the other has gone."
There are plenty of others, not
only concerning traffic but many
other subjects. Wouldn't it be a
good idea to review all laws and
eliminate those that are outmoded
and not enforcable?

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY '
It was with much interest we read a feature article by Clarence
Bizell in Sunday's Tallahassee Democrat. The article featured the
small town of Havana and extolled the virtues offered by this and
all small towns. The article was written with the theme in mind
that Havana was quickly becoming Tallahassee's "bedroom" with
the uncrowded living, the small town atmosphere, the many attri-
butes of having "neighbors". Havana is only 15 minutes from Tal-
lahassee and is growing because of this fact.
The article made one statement that would apply to Port St. Joe.
It stated that even though Havana and other small towns were
growing, more and more stores on the main street were being
boarded up because of the lure of big city shopping. And, even
though the writer was from the big city that was strangling Ha-
vana's business, we noted a tinge of regret that this was so.
It's also so in Port St. Joe. There isn't a business in Port St.
Joe --- The Star included but what would show stupendous
growth in size and offerings of merchandise, if it weren't for the
"pull of the city". Why does this pull exist? We frankly don't
know. It isn't because of price, since a little shopping around will
bring to light bargains just as good as the large city. It could be
selection, but the "pull of the city" is the reason for that. A mer-
chant isn't going to stock items he doesn't have regular calls for.
He would be foolish if he did.
Really, we believe the blame could be laid at the feet of both
the merchants and the purchaser. The merchant for not doing
enough promoting and the purchaser for not being more loyal to
his home town.
Port St. Joe needs both the merchants and the people. The
City feeds for business of its citizens to be carried on here. We
have a nice town here and nothing will preserve it except the
loyalty of its people.
Maybe all of us should adopt the slogan, "Did you try Port St.
It looks like we are going to pay the price now for the Spring.
like Winter we have been having. For weeks we have looked at
weather forecasts that have said, "fair, with temperatures above
normal". Now the forecasts read, "Cold to partly cloudy, with
temperatures BELOW normal".
But one consolation, they will not get to the minus zero
cold we Pead about in the North and even in the northern
sections of the states just north of us.
We all belly-ache about the high cost of doctors, hospitals and
medicine. It -gets so that we think it is just unfair that we
should be forced to pay so much money to stay well.
But now, it seems like everytime we pick up the papers the
last few weeks, another doctor has performed a heart transplant.
True, a patient hasn't lived very long yet. But the fact that the
doctors have the operation down pat enough to do now and have
the patient live at all should be cause enough for us to be thankf4
for the abundant medical knowledge available at our fingertips dur-
ing this day and time. It's comforting to know that there are men
in almost every state of the union who can make drastic repairs to
the human body with reasonable success.
Now, if we could just find a cure for the un-common cold.

Social Security Changes
16 Million Dollars In Ou
The 1967 Social Security changes
signed by President Johnson on
January 2 will bring Social Securi-
ty benefit payments to more than
16 million dollars during 1968 in
this district, John V. Carey, District
3Manager of, the Panama City So-
cial Security Office, said today.
The increased checks are due for
February and will arrive on March
2 automatically. No action is re-
quired and, in fact, individuals
should not contact Social Security
about the increase.
The benefits increase will aver-
age about 13 percent, Carey con-
tinued. However, the increase for
many people in our district will be
ifar more than 13 percent because
minimum benefits have been raised
from $44 to $55. The highest pos-

February will be $160.50.
The Social Security tax rate re-
mains the same for 1968 for salar-
ied people as well as self-employ-
ed individuals, Carey added. How-
ever, all workers beginning in 1968
will pay Social Security taxes on
the first $7800 of their earnings.
The cost of the doctor's part of
medicare will go up to $4 per
month on April 1, 1968. The $4
rate will. apply through June 30,
1969. The Federal Treasury will al-
so begin paying $4 beginning
April 1, 1968 for everyone enrolled
in the doctor's part of medicare.
The 1967 changes provide addition-
al protection under the doctor's
part of medicare which in part re-
quired the increase to $4.
Actually, far more than 16 mil-
lion dollars will be paid during
1968 in this district office area be-
cause the changes in the law pro-
vide benefits to many individuals
who do not receive Social Security
checks, Carey declared. Social Se-
curity benefits may now be payable
in the following situations:
Disabled widows or widowers
and disabled divorced wives of a
deceased worker may qualify for a
Social Security check on the re-
cord of their deceased spouse when
they reach age 50.
Individuals disabled before age
31 can now qualify with less Social
Security credit. In some cases, dis-
ability benefits can be paid on as
little as one and one-half years of
Many dependents of women
workers will now qualify for bene-
fits where none could be paid be-
fore. Under the changes if a female
worker'is insured or was insured,
benefits are available to all cate-
gories of dependents such as minor
children, dependent husbands, or
Monthly benefits can now be
paid to the worker's spouse if the
marriage has existed for nine
months. In cases of accidental
death or death while on active duty
in the military service, the nine
months requirement is presumed
to have Ieen met if the marriage
had existed for three months.
A new claim must be filed in
order to receive benefits under
these provisions even through a
claim had previously been filed
that has been disallowed.
The retirement test which ap-
plies to all nondisability benefici-
aries under age 72 has been
changed but does not take effect
until January 1968, Carey stressed.
Under the new retirement test for
1968, an individual may earn up
to $1680 a year without losing any
of his Social Security benefits.
Further, an-individual can be paid
benefits under the change for any
months that he does not earn more
than $140- per month and is not
self-employed, regardless of his
total earnings for the year. Earn-
ings above $1680 per year in the
future will cause the loss of $1 in
benefits for each $2 of earnings up
to $2880 per year. Earnings above
$2880. per year will cause loss of $1
in benefits for each $1 in earnings.
Many individuals age 62 and over
in the seven county Panama City
district area should file retirement
claims under this new provision.
There are many people in this area
who do not earn more than $1680
Individuals who have failed to
enroll under the doctor's part of
medicare have only until April 1,
1968 to accomplish this, Carey em-
phasized. Failure of those individ-
uals age 65 and over to enroll be-
fore April 1 will mean that they
cannot sign up for the doctor's
part of medicare until January
1968. Of course, individuals who
have not reached age 65 should en-
roll for the doctor's part of medi-
care in the three month period be-
fore their 65th birth month.
The 1967 changes have made a
number of improvements in the
protection afforded under medi-
care, and have provided another
method of receiving reimbursement
from medicare under the doctor's
part. Payment from medicare may
be received as before the changes
if the doctor accepts. assignment
and receives his money directly
from medicare. Now, however, if
your doctor does not agree to ac-
cept assignment, you may claim
paid your doctor or not. If you
have not paid your bill, medicare
will send you a check and it will
be up to you to make settlement
with your doctor. This new method
for settling claims under the doc-
tor's part of-medicare can be used
for any medical service that you
received after June 1966 or after
you reached age .65, if later, that
are still unsettled. Claims for medi-
care services rendered during July
1966 through September 1966 must
be filed by March 31, 1968. A new
medicare handbook describing the
changes in medicare will be mailed
to all medicare beneficiaries in
April or May, of this year.
The 1967 amendments made sev-
eral changes in Social Security
coverage provisions, Carey pointed
out. Military personnel will .begin
to receive more Social Security
credit effective this month. for
active duty after December 1967.
An additional $100 to $300 per ca-
lendar quarter will be credited t
your record above the amount of
your base pay, but you will not
pay Social Security taxes on this
additional credit. All ministers
who have not taken the vow of
poverty will be under Social Se-
curity as self-employed people af-
ter December 31, 1967, unless they
object to this cevorage. Individ-
uals who are ministers now must
file a statement of their objection
with the Internal Revenue Service
by April 15, 1970 to be exempt. In-
dividuals who become ministers in
1969 or later will have until April
15 of the second year after the year
in which he became a minister to
request exemption. Ministers who

Prerequisites of the project in-
clude trips to the beach to collect
the ocean-made flower pots.
Many gardeners won't have to
make the trip. Often there is a pri-

into something useful.
The size of the shell depends on
the size of the plant you plan to
grow. The giant-sized conchs are

Conchs filled with geraniums or

Cone-shaped shells placed in a

orizing the scientific names of
shells and plants you can fool visi-
tors into thinking that you are an
expert on both land and sea.
