Your Choice To Make
During one of his theatrical TV performances re-
cently, President Johnson spoke on the "awesome burdens"
of his office.
It is more than high-flown philosophy to assert that
in a very practical sense each of us shares the burdens of
that office. 'The ultimate test of our understanding of
that fact is when we put an "X" opposite the name of a
'candidate for the Presidency in the lonesome confines of
a polling booth.
That test tells whether we are serious or frivolous,
thoughtful or careless, and whether we have solemnly
reflected oni the choice or have let ourselves be moved
by motion. Haye we selected the candidate who addressed
the issues or the galleries?
The difficulties in making a choice are no greater this
year than -they were four years ago. They are no dif-
ferent from one Presidential election to another. Our
system of choosing the Chief Executive works when
many, if 'not most, people demand that the candidates
exhibit ability and virtue in extraordinary degree. Look-
ing back, just the span of one's own experience, can be
useful in choosing. For example, we cannot say what
the differences in our world might have been had Wen-
dell Willkie been elected rather than Franklin D. Roose-
velt, or Adlai Stevenson rather than Dwight Eisenhower.
But those differences would surely have been considerable.
Which candidate reflected the greater virtue in private and
public life? Which exhibited greater ability? Which
addressed the issues and which the gallery?
SOne of the soundest counsels, left to us by Alexander
Hamilton, drew attention to certain defects in Presidential
candidates. He noted that a candidate with "talents for
low intrigue and the little arts of popularity," certainly
does not merit our esteem and confidence.
In our age of television, the importance of these tal-
ents may be magnified in the eyes of the candidates. But
they must not be magnified in the eyes of the voter. When
we, the voters, prepare ourselves to count "talents for low
intrigue and the little arts of popularity" as demerits, the
professional politicians may be persuaded to bring for-
ward more worthy candidates for our consideration.
A friend of ours says he decides which candidate he'd
choose to work for over the next four years--that he fig-
ures he'll be working for him about five months a year
to pay his taxes. That just may be as good a basis for
choosing as any.
A Tip of the Old 'Hat
We have to take off our editorial paper hat in ap-
preciation and admiration for Dr. Thaddeus Kostrubala
of Northwestern University. Dr. Kostrubala is a psychia-
trist. Dr. Kostrubala is one of the, few who have recogniz-
ed the fact that "the beautiful people are the bounteous
ones", and calls.for a halt to the "cult of emaciation."
Dieting and worrying about the waistline are definite-
ly passe for Dr. Kostrubala. "Ample flesh", he writes,
"reflects intellect and soul and the inner life'of corpulent
people unfolds itself in a flowering of social action and
We thought no one would ever notice!
Evidently Twiggy doesn't "send" Dr. Kostrubala as
she did most of the fashion world last year. His "beauti-
ful people" are Buddha, Winston Churchill, President
Grover Cleveland, Al Hirt, Santa Claus, Peter Ustinov
and Mayor Richard J. Daley.
None of these are sylph-like, but all of them are in-
variably smiling or laughing all the time, proving they
are jolly people and jolly people are beautiful peo-
ple. Their only problem is trying to buy a ready-made
pair of pants that fits like it should.
Dr. Kostrubala said the fight-fat fuss was caused by
life insurance companies and doctors who practice internal
medicine. They have created he said, a "false image of
How can anyone look beautiful when he is starving to
death as the result of trying to look beautiful?
"We have come to assume that the stature of a full
figure and the pleasurable consumption of good food in
quantity,is sinful," said Kostrubala.
There comes a time when one eats for one of the
small pleasures in life not merely for nourishment.
We appreciate Dr. Kostrubala's keen insight. We
predict that with his kind of "smarts", he will go far.
He is already one of our favorite people.

dismal period .Russia was all
powerful. For Europe this was a
period of permanent unrest, not
least in France. The rapid indus-
trialization of France was raising
acute social questions. There had
-been beginnings of socialist
thought in the later period of
the first French Revolution, es-
pecially during the Commune of
Paris, and after the fall of Robes-
pierre; these beginnings were
followed up by several socialistic
theorists, from Saint Simon and
Fourier to Louis Blanc. Political
unrest was chronic in West Ger-
many and in Italy. In Germany
there were other theorists whose
main interest was sociology, and
in this field a number of mas-
ters, Kant, Fichte, Schelling and
Hegel. One of the most notable
of Russian thinkers was Belin.
sky and the poets Pushkin and
Among the Russian intelligent-
sia was Bukunin. For the most
part these men were theorists,
thinkers; and they accepted the
German philosopher Schelling,
whose theory of intuitive con-
templation of and absorption in
the' absolute met the cravings
of isolated thinkers, in a society
which had so little to offer them
in the ways of standards, aes-
thetic or ethical.
At this same time, in Germany,
was a man who up to this' time
was unheard of-Karl Marx. He .
was quite the screwball, writing
trash about how a government
should be managed while at the
same time he could riot support
his wife and child. The wife lat-
er died of malnutrition. Marx
studied the writings of Fourier,
Bakunin and Hegel and later of
the Russian Kropotkin. (I do not
include Engels because he really
did not play an important part-
his main contribution to Com-
munism was solely his role as a
meal ticket to Karl Marx.)
Nicholas died on March 2,
1855 and with him fell in ruins
the system of which his person-
ality was everywhere regarded
as the incarnation. Alexander II

Ever since our little "house dog" died a few months back,
our girls have pestered us to let them get another pet dog. But
since we already had the two cats and four kittens, I just figured
that was enough pets in the household. But since all of the cats
were "outside cats" except one, and since the lone "inside cat"
slept on the window sill in the boys room at night, the girls still
pestered for a dog.
Well, we got rid of four kittens and then one day last week
here came the girls home dragging a four-month-old poodle be-
hind them. Of all things, a poodle!
To top, it all off, son Willie came home with an old pool table
the other day which someone had thrown out in the trash. He put
four legs on it and hauled it up to his room.
Since the dog came, the cat has become jealous. So, to work
off her jealousy, she gets down off the window sill at night and
rolls the pool balls around on the pool table. And that big over-
grown four-month-old dog walks between the girl's beds, flops down
a few minutes, then walks to the other bed and flops down again.
This helps a great deal when one is' trying to sleep under it'down-
All I need now is a coo-coo clock.
The hurricane season started the first of the week and al-
ready a "tropical- disturbance" has popped up in the Caribbean
to draw the first name selected for the season's' hurricanes.
Usually the hurricanes are named after women; but this year
they named the'last one after a man; and guess what name they
selected? "Wesley" I wonder if there's anything personal in
Do you remember the first of the year when Charles de Gaulle
was giving the U. S. dollar a fit, with his gold buying practices?
Charlie was asked to stop, but he in effect said, 'That's tough Un-
cle Sam, if you can't stand the pressure, don't get in the game".
Charlie was having himself a time. He was having fun.
But now Charlie is scurrying about like a three legged cat
after a mouse trying to curb the run on the franc resulting from
his troubles at home. The French government had to take drastic
measures to prevent Frenchmen from getting their cash out of
the country for trading while it was still worth something.
Charlie is on the financial run now. Wonder how he likes
\The Chicago Daily News said a couple of weeks ago that a
top-secret derectivie has been sent to all U.S. field commanders in
South Vietna n to win the war within the next three months.
If it's within the power of the military to end the war "in
three months" they should have been allowed to do so long
ago. But, isn't this the feeling of most of the U, S, today ,
drive it or park it?
We're reading an article in the Saturday Evening Post about
the South and its "outstanding demagogue" George Wallace. From
what we have read of the article, the author never has been South
and his portrait of Wallace is based on what he has heard from
the Alabaman's enemies. _In this article we learned that South-
erners don't have ideas (guess they just live on instinct). The
writer says that "they answer to the tribal instinct". About the
only thing good said about the South was that we have "a fine old-
fashioned sense of sin". He must have based this last observation
on the fact that no Southerner ever shouted that "God is. dead", or
succeeded in getting prayer taken out of school. It took others
in this nation to successfully accomplish this. All in all, I don't think

Students Planning to Work In Summer
Should Have Social Security Card
Students who plan to work for
the first time this summer should
get social security cards before
they start job hunting. This infor-
mation comes from Ted A. Gam-
ble, District Manager of the Pan-
ama City Social Security office.
"Many of the employers in our
area will not accept a new em-
ployee unless he can furnish his
social security card at the time of
hiring. Others will hold up the
first pay check until a social se-
curity card is furnished," Gamble
explained. "The main reason we
urge these young workers to get
social security cards," Gamble
said, "is so that they can get full
and proper credit for their work."
So many young people think
about social security only in

PREPARE SOIL BEFORE
The success of your flower gar-
den may depend on how you pre-
pare soil for annual plants, say hor-
ticulturists with the Florida Agri-
cultural Extension Service.
If you continue to grow plants
in the same soil, the soil aggre-
gates will break down into smaller
aggregates, reducing the air avail-
able to roots.
Soil improvement starts with
adding organic matter. Well-rotted
manure or compost may be spread
over the surface and mixed into
the soil to a depth of six inches.
Peat moss is an excellent soil
and is a good soil
Peat moss, which is available at
garden stores, should be spread at
the ratio of 4 to 8 cubic feet per
100 square feet of bed.
If soil tests show that the soil
is acid, it may be advisable to add
from 2 to 5 pounds of lime per
100 square feet. As for fertilizer,
spread two pounds of 5-10-5 or 5-
10-10 per 100 square feet of flower
Spread the organic matter, lime
and fertilizer evenly over the bed.
Turn the soil until it is uniformly
When the soil is well mixed, lev-
el off the bed, plant your flowers,
