confessed ,to 'the killings. The
question to solve since that time

St. Joe Garden Club, asked the
County to include in its Second-
ary Road budget, an item for the
beautification of'' highways in
.Gulf County, principally the en-
trances to thel City of Port St.
Joe. The Board agreed to include
$3,000 in its road budget for
this purpose. '
Mrs. Nance also asked the
County to erect street signs and
stop signs on St. Joe Beach
streets in the proper places.
The Board had already been

Neal Lumber Company of
Blountstown notified the Board
that since International Paper

School Choice Forms Sent
Forms were sent out last week
to parents of children attending
Gulf County public. schools for
the freedom of choice, registra-
tion for the 1968-69 school year.

School Superintendent Marion
Chaig said the period for school
choice designation will run thru
April 30. but he suggested that
the-forms be returned as soon as
possible to the school which the
pupil how attends.
All grades in the Gulf school
system are desegregated, Craig
noted.U The parents and pupils
may select any school.
The choice system requires
every student white or Negro to
make a choice of schools.
"If a child is entering the
ninth or higher grade or if he is
15-years-old or older,, he' may
make the choice himself, unless
the parent makes a different
choice," Craig said.
The forms when completed
may be mailed or delivered by
messenger to any school princi-
pal or the office of the county
school superintendent at any
time before April 30.
"No principal, teacher or oth-
er school official is permitted to
influence anyone in, making a
choice or to require early re-
turn of the choice forms," Craig
stressed. "No one is permitted to
favor or penalize any student or
other person because of a choice
made. A choice once made can-
not be changed except for ser-

New Attempt At Canal By Pass
No doubt you saw in Sunday's Panama City News-
Herald, that paper's latest attempt to throw a kink into
our future. The Herald. is trying to revive a move to
dig a canal from just South of Wewahitchka to West Bay
which would supposedly give Apalachicola River traffic
a shorter route to travel on its way to and from Alabama,
Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Admittedly -it would provide a shorter distance be-
tween Columbus, Ga., and Panama City, which is all the
Herald cares about.,
But, such a move would'have the -effect of closing
down a small industry now operating here in Port St. Joe.
This would cause a closing down, when promises are for
an "expansion" of this industry which we now enjoy for
its economy boost, its wages paid.
For years, Panama City has put out the glad hand to
Gulf County. "Come on over, spend your money, we love
you. We're interested in you". Twice now in the past five
years, Panama City has shown its love by trying to "shut
our water commerce off".
We want to remnind you that' Port St. Joe has been
designated as the seaport for the Three Rivers Project.
This was done because Port St. Joe had the best harbor
available to the River System. It was the closest harbor
to the system, and the port was already served by the
canal system, which extends up into the Three Rivers
project. All the natural requirements pointed to Port
Now Panama City wants to by-pass Port St. Joe and
bring this business to Panama City where Panama City
longshoremen will earn extra wages; where Panama City
will earn dockage fees; where Panama City transportation
facilities will earn freight revenue.
It might be that Port St. Joe should fight fire with
fire ,and try tp convince some of these small industries go-
ing into Bay County that they should come to Gulf Coun-
ty because they would have lesstaxes to pay, a better
place in which" to live, better water, friendlier people.
Or maybe we should just stop spending a third of our
economy over in Bay County. But that would be dirty
pool wouldn't it.
ASSASSIN DOES COUNTRY 'DIS-SERVICE
This newspaper will not be a hypocrite now and say
that we agreed, or approved, of Dr. Martin Luther King.
We won't say that we approved of his selection for the
Nobel Peace Prize. We certainly did not concur with his
claim that his movement was strictly non-violent. Too
many people were killed and injured in the wake of his
path to make any claims for being non-violent, by any
stretch of the imagination. Mr. King was fond of quoting
the Bible, which says, that he who lives by the sword shall
die by the sword.
But that's neither here nor there.
The man who shot Dr. King did .this country a dis-
Sservice. The dis-service goes 'in two directions. First;
it is not the normal way of this nation and its people to
resort to or condone assassinations. This is the coward's
way.. This is the depraved nation's way. We have laws
by which we must abide. We should be too civilized by
now, to resort to such tactics. Secondly, the aftermath
was more than our people-both black and white-should
be forced to bear to settle the hatred of one man toward
Two assassinations during the past five years mean
something deeper than dissatisfaction with the people who
served as targets.
'We may be getting old, but we take a deeper look at,
King's assassination and that of former President Kennedy
than just racial bigotry or displeasure with a permissive
and liberal government movement.
We have never been a John Bircher, nor do we plan
to ever be, but events are forcing us to believe that this

unrest in our nation is caused by the Communists. We
have been warned, in public, with the world as an audience,
that we would be conquered from within.
What could do us more harm from within, than the
assassination of a president, who many held dear. A pres-
ident considered by a large segment of our population to
be the true answer to their problems; or the assassination
of a man that the Negro-over 10 percent of our popula-
tion-considered as their leader to equality. You consider
the impact of these moves and you will see two telling
blows struck toward Russia's avowed goal.
And when we look at the fact that riots are under
way in 85 of our major cities-at one time-such coordina-
tion is too much to be "accidental" or "spontaneous". To
add fuel for thought we read where several arrested riot
leaders are carrying Comnhunist membership cards.
It disturbs us that we should sit back and play de-,
fensive tactics in these riots-prevent' people from getting
hurt and wrecking the place-rather than taking the of-
fensive to rid the nation of the 'destructive riots. We
don't rightly know if we took our riot control techniques
from the operation of the Vietnam war or the operation
of the Vietnam war from our riot control techniques, but
one works about as well as the other.
We hope we are wrong in this assumption, because
we would hate to see Communism or any other ism mak-
ing such headway against us, using as their unwitting ve-'
hicle those sincerely interested in bettering the lot of our
ON STUDENT RIOTS
Scarcely a day passes but that we read or hear details
of a monster demonstration or riot by students somewhere
in the world most recently in Memphis, Tennessee.
Learned sociologists in this country and across both
oceans are quoted as reading into these developments all
kinds of great significance,
S When the riots take place behind the iron curtain,
in Czechoslovakia or Poland or in East Germany, they
are supposed to reflect ideological dissent from despotic
When the riots take place in Madrid it's said to be a
sign of discontent with the dictatorship of Franco. When
the riots occur in Tolyo, profound observers suggest that
a new generation is breaking out of a stratified society
and only good can come from it.
When the rioting takes place in our own college cam-
puses, it is identified as protest against the war, the draft
the white majority and the ambition of students to parti-
cipate in the affairs of the world. It may be that there
is a modicum of truth in all of these interpretations. It
would be, a wonder if young people anywhere in the world
could complacently accept the kind of world we adults
have given them; it's hardly the kind of world to prompt
But it seems to us extravagant to put big labels on
these growing student disorders. And it will be a grave
mistake to permit them to continue, particularly here in
our own land. Those who encourage untempered--'and
bad-tempered-young people who can't even vote to be
political activists are placing society in jeopardy. Hitler
proved that to a whole generation in Europe, and more re-
cently, the desperate Mao "activated" the student Red
Guards in China to destroy his opponents. But Mao hasn't
been able to turn them off.
Whatever student activists may think, it still is the
record of history that those who are ignorant of the trials
and errors of he past, or choose to ignore those mistakes,
are doomed to repeat. those mistakes. The theory that
riots and demonstrations will accomplish change for the
better has been tested too many times in man's history
and proved a bad theory. More often than not, the result
is simply a recriminatory response from the authorities
which the nation has chosen as leaders. And those who
incite disregard of authority tend to be unbending author-
itarians of the worst kind when they have seized the reins.

Of course the conversation of the day is "riots".
Probably nothing is ever so harmful to a nation and
its image as continued riots.
We were reading an article in Reader's Digest the
other night on how Baltimore had settled its riot problem
and avoided them. We picked up the paper the next
morning and read where Baltimore now has 10,000 Fed-
eral troops there to control rioters.
It's this way all over.
Personally, I'm glad to live in a small community
where the television and news camera doesn't go-prob-
ably the most common cause of riots today.
We've talked to a lot of irate parents during the past
few days irate over the fact that the County Sheriff's
Department called off the Junior-Senior Prom Saturday
night for, fear of trouble.
And, we've talked to some irate City officials for not
being consulted-neither they, nor their Police Depart-
ment-in the question of whether or not to call off the
We realize the Sheriff's Department wields a pretty
big whip over county affairs, but it is only common cour-
tesy-and wise procedure-to let affected law inforce-
ment officials inside a community know what is planned.
My personal beef is that such a move was made in a
community that has no reason to suspect trouble. Port
St. Joe should be grateful for its level-headed citizens, not
invite trouble by openly taunting them to action.

Try as I must to find words that are right,
The very best effort always seems trite
As, I try to express, as best, I can,
Deep-set feelings about a truly great man.
Each one of us reviews a part of his life .
The part we knew best, as sorrow's sharp knife
Stabs and slashes all the way to the core,
Bht even through this, we appreciate him more.
He was always pleasant, with kind words to say.
He was gracious and gentle by night and by day.
To all who knew him, he was a welcome sight,
And doing for others was his constant delight.
His Christian influence gave new direction to one
Who knew him well since their courtship fun.
To any who needed it, he was a friend,
To many he helped, he was a God-send.
Thanks be to God for the life of our John,
And because of him, help each of us pledge
To try to be better by knowing "Love's Plan" .
As did our dear friend and companion, John.
To all who knew him he was always so nice.
To Myrtle, he was a jewel without price.
