Chamber Members Meet Monday
The first monthly meeting of
the membership of the Port St.
Joe-Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce will be held Monday,
May 6 at 9:00 A.M., at the Stac'
House located on Eighth Street.
Robert Holland, owner of St.
Joe Materials Company, who will,
host the meeting stated that the
speaker will be Gordon Butler of
Jacksonville, who is the Execu-
tive Secretary of the Florida
League of Municipalities. Butler
will' speak on the problems fac-
ing cities in Florida and the ap-
proach taken by the various ci-
ties. Butler is well-known thru-
out the state for the part he has
played in the League's behalf
during the several sessions of
the Legislature. All bills that are
presented to the Legislature are
viewed with interest by the
League's Secretary to find how
the bills will affect the cities'
position, and the cities are noti-
fied of the bills and how it af-
fects them. The various munici-
palities then know what action
to take to protect their interests.
Coffee and doughnuts will be
served to members attending by
the host company.
Holland said that he expects a
large turn-out for the first meet-
ing that will be held and the
members as well as interested
people are invited to attend.
The monthly meetings were
approved by the directors of the
chamber at the April meeting to
bring the general membership in
closer contact with their Cham-
ber. The directors meet the first
Monday of each month and with
the general meeting being held
the same day, members will have
an opportunity to discuss their
thoughts with the directors prior
to business meetings.

THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1968
Vote for Cecil A. Kennedy
We would like to take this last minute to remind you
of one we think will make Gulf County an effective Sena-
tor in the Florida Legislature for the next four years-
not only for District Six as &i.whole, but Gulf County as a
county. We are speaking of Cecil A. Kennedy of Jasper,
who was endorsed for this position by this newspaper last
We point again to the evident qualifications of this
man Cecil A. Kennedy for Senator of the Sixth District.
Foremost, his campaign slogan is not just a "campaign
slogan" He is "your kind of man". Like many peo-
ple who have become successful through hard work, he
knows the value of a dollar. He knows when a dollar is
being wasted and he is uneasy until that waste is stopped.
Like most of the people in the Port St. Joe and Gulf County
area\ he grew up with the daily farm chores staring him
in the face. In this manner, he learned how to work.
Mr. Kennedy has proven that he has the business sav-
vy that the State of Florida needs to overhaul its morass
of financing and income. Everyone agrees that there is
a need for an overhaul to the tax system. Everyone
agrees that more could be done in our state, without the
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Horatio has decided,to make his stand, at the bridge and stand
off the Republican (dragons) with one hand while he. fights off
those knaves Bobby Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy.
But Hubert Horatio Humphrey had better keep an eagle eye
out, for George Wallace has donned his scuba diving outfit and
is making an underwater approach to cut Hubert, Bobby, Eugene,
Richard and Rocky down to his size. ,
By the time these" three groups .meet in November, the tussle
should be a battle royal-with no holds barred.
But if national politics\are being more interesting as they
grow warmer, our local politics are almost the opposite. If it
wasn't the month of May in an "even" year, one would hardly
know there was an election in the making.
Thus far we haven't even had our favorite television shows
pre-empted by paid political advertisements. But, we serve notice
here and now, the candidate who pre-empts Daniel Boone on Thurs-
day night does not, get our vote.

The students at Columbia University--or' at least about 10
. percent of them, have caused classes to be curtailed. 'That's a pity
that school officials can be so pushed about by a rag-tag few which
deprives thousands of continuing their education.
When we remember the small infractions that would get a
student expelled from school in our school going days, we have-to
shake our head in disbelief.-
The proper thing to do would be to expell the troublemakers
and send them home. But, then, we don't do things the easy and
,proper way anymore.
We received the official word Tuesday morning, from Mar-
-vin Land, that the martins are'in town. He said the birds were
'swarming around his station. Probably wanting some Chevron to
get -back to "Chevron Island" what with the cool spell that greet-
,ed them Tuesday morning.
For years we have heard the theory that the martins ate
mosquitoes, and a sure way to keep these pesky insects controlled
-was to erect a martin house in your yard. But a few weeks back:
an expert on insects spoke to the Kiwanis Club and shattered
this-theory. As so many theories are shattered, he burst it wide
open with simple logic. The logic was that mosquitoes fly mostly
-'at night and the martins.feed in the day time .. thus the two
-ordinarily miss each other. Martins would undoubtedly love
-mosquitoes, if they would just be kind enough to fly while the
birds are dining. :
Next Tuesday is the day for going to the polls to cast your
ballot. We know it has been a so-so campaign, but the importance
of the offices to be decided are ever with us. In this day of in-
creased and increasing taxes; of increased spending; of increased,
valuation on real property;, it becomes more important than ever
that we all cast our ballot and cast it for the man we 'think will
do the most to properly operate these large government businesses
we support every tax paying time.
Don't be complacent. Cast your vote Tuesday. Then if things
don't work out like you wish, you can grumble to your heart's

shocking pain in our pocketbook now necessary to pay
the bills. But, we submit, it will take knowledgeable bus-
inessmen to pull off this miracle not politicians.
Mr. Kennedy's success with agriculture. is attested to
by his successful farming operation in his native Jasper.
Agriculture is a vital part of our economy. The candidate
has one of the first peach orchards planted in this state
on an experimental basis and now producing. Another
vital money crop has been added to our 'economy because
of the foresight of men like Kennedy. This is the type
of "qualification" we mean. A man who is able to recog-
nize opportunity and turn it into success. "
We are concerned here in Port St. Joe with industry.
We know we need more, large and small. Sprinkled
about Jasper and neighboring communities are several
industries which Kennedy wooed to the area without
the help of organized groups. We, particularly, need
a man with industrial contacts; proven contacts.
Cecil Kennedy may not have been in the Legislature
before. He may not now be a public servant in any capa-
city. His background is admittedly limited to success-
ful operation of his businesses and farmlands. But we
submit, that the drive that was necessary to build what
he has built will be invaluable to the Sixth Senatorial Dis-
trict in our surge ahead.
Social Security Must Be Withheld
From Wages of Household Workers
Many household workers in this information on how to report the
area are losing valuable Social Se-
curity protection for themselves
and their families because their
earnings are not being reported,
according to Ted Gamble, District
Manager of the Panama City So-
cial Security office.
Gamble emphasized that the law
is very specific on this matter. The
earnings of .a person Working in
or around a private home must be
reported' to Internal Revenue if
they amount to at least $50 cash
in a calendar quarter. As little as
$4 a week will amount to more
than $50 a quarter.
This is not a matter of .choice
for either the worker or the em-
ployer. The employer is required
to withhold 4.4% from the house-
hold worker's wages and to' match
this with an equal amount. Failure,
to report the Social Security.taxes'

Elect A STRONG NEW
VOICE for i
CITIZENS OF GULF COUNTY:
,I want to take this opportunity to ask each of you for your support in this campaign. I
want your friendship and your help, and in turn I want to be an effective voice for Gulf County
in the Florida legislature.
The position of state representative is an important one. The laws passed by the legisla-
ture affect you in almost everything you do ani your representative is your personal spokesman
in regard to these laws.
I 'am. a native of Bay County. My father operates a filling station in Panama City and
my mother is Bay County supervisor of elections. I am married, have two children, and prac-
tice law in Panama City with the law firni of Davenport, Johnston, Harris and Urquhart.
I am in this race for one reason and one reason only, and that is because I believe that
there are things that can and should be done that aren't being done and that people should be
informed as to what is going on in government. I believe new jobs can be created and prosperity
brought to our area. I believe that we can do better in many ways.
If you agree with me, then join with me and vote, nor for the same old way, but for a
strong new voice, a voice that will be heard .and respected, a voice that will fight for increased
homestead exemption, for our senior citizens, for organized labor, for our fishermen, yes truly
for all our people.
Through education and experience I have prepared myself to be that voice. Your vote
and support will be greatly appreciated.

tional opportunities of the stu-
dents involved. Mr. Parker stated
that he felt that the Bay County
School System would make ar-
rangements for the Tyndal Field
children to attend school in Bay

and that they would have to attend
the Gulf County Schools only three
more months in this school year.

The Board discussed the employ-
ment of the substitute teachers
who are working as replacements
for the regular teachers during the
present crisis. Board Member Mo-
ney made a motion that the sub-
stitute teachers be employed on a

over. Board Member Raffield sec-
onded the motion. All voted YES.
The Superintendent read a reso-
lution from a group of citizens
from North Port St. Joe request-
ing that Washington High School

from the Health, Education and

ton, D.C. confirming an agreement
made by the Board and that agency
concerning the desegregation of

erintendent was directed to write
this agency concerning a misinter-
