Gun Controls Not The Answer
Probably nobody in their right mind is glad that Sena-
tor Robert Kennedy was shot and killed last week. This
just isn't the way we should do things in this United
States the land of debate the land of the free
ballot. Regardless of how most right-thinking Americans
intended to vote when Mr. Kennedy's name'popped up on
a ballot, he didn't deserve to be sho-tlown in cold blood;
nor did the nation deserve the "black eye" which is ours
in world-wide opinion, due to the shooting.
In order to show our regret, our sorrow, for such an
abominable act, we will now let our passion and sorrow
- overcome our good sense; just as we did after the shooting
of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
After the shooting of John F. Kennedy, a movement
began to grow to establish gun ownership laws in these
United States that would make it most difficult to pur-
chase and freely own firearms. Then when Martin Luther
King was shot, this move was revived and is presently in
Congress in the fqrm of a gun control bill. The shooting
of Robert F. Kennedy will probably give this bill a jet
assist through Congress. ,
We can agree with some laws toward sales of fire-
arms through the mails; particularly by the firms which
offer surplus arms to anybody and everybody. But guns
sold as sporting equipment-and these can be readily
identified, by responsible dealers should remain as free
as in the past.
We believe thatpeddlers of guns should ,be strictly
regulated, especially as to character. We believe that it
should be against the law to sell firearms in the vicinity
of a riot which is in progress.
But to make it almost impossible for Americans to
purchase firearms for sporting and target practices, we
cannot agree with.
We believe that regardless of the laws passed, if a.
person desires to shoot another person, he will secure a!
gun, legally, or illegally.
S We noted with interest Senator Tyding's arguments
on "Meet the Press" Sunday afternoon, that America has
more gun murders than any other Western nation. This
Smay be true. But, we noted, that Senator Tydings limit-
ed his statistics to. "gun murders" and didn't take the
crime of murder as a whole. If he had, he would have
had to note that other Western nations h4ve higher mur-
der rates than the U. S. despite the limitation of gun owner-
ship. We wonder if the murder victims in these other
countries feel any less dead since they were murdered with
a knife, a club, poison, strangulation or some other me-
thod? We wonder how many of these people would not
have been murdered had they been allowed to own guns
with which to protect themselves?
We would like to point out one thing.
Lee Harvey Oswald concealed his rifle to stash it in
the Texas Book Depository to shoot President Kennedy.
He transported this Weapon illegally.
It was illegal for the man who shot Martin Luther
King to transport his rifle to the rooming house from
which he shot, in the manner which it was transported.
It was against the law for the man who shot Robert
F. Kennedy to take his pistol into the hotel in the
In short, it's illegal to carry a concealed weapon, but
this law didn't stop either man from completing his self-
appointed mission. If the concealed weapons law was
all it took to guarantee no concealed weapons, neither
man would have been shot. The three assassins wanted to
kill someone and they managed to do so, law or no law.
It will be so in the future, no matter what thp law.
In our opinion the decision of the Supreme Court a
week or 10 days ago to virtually eliminate the death pen-
alty in these United States had more to do with the killing
of Robert Kennedy than did the lack of law to prohibit
the sale of firearms.
June 14 Is "Flag Day"
The calendar tells us t h a t we soon will be observing
Flag Day. This year it falls on June 14. Every U. S. citizen
should be proud to look upon the American flag as the
greatest national symbol ever unfurled from any standard.
It represents a nation formed on the unprecedented princi-
ple that the powers of government are derived from the
people. The U. S. flag exalts the individual and the constitu-
tional guarantees which preserve his freedom. It represents
a people that have been generous, heroic and creative. It is
the symbol of freedom from political oppression, of oppor-
tunity to make a better life to which the oppressed of all
nations have turned with hope and been fulfilled.
Flag Day is a good time to get back to basics and recog-
nize that a tingling up your spine when the stars and stripes
go by is one of the surest signs that the vitality and genius
of this nation and its capacity to achieve great things on
the stage of history is still very much with us. Despite our
mechanized, computerized society, ;the fact remains that
anything having to do with humah enideavor rests upon
an intangible quality of spirit in the individual. Some indi-
viduals have it in larger measure t h an others, and the
same is true of nations.
The greatness of the United States is b a s e d on the
spirit of her people. Let us remember in these complicated
days of our history, there is much need for simple patrio-
tism, deeply felt and clearly shown.
"The Rise of Communism
In 1860 Alexander II commenc-
ed to make additional reforms.
Free education again was insti-
tuted; censorship was stopped
and freedom of the press allow-
'ed. In 1961 an emancipation de-
tree was drafted and published.

peasants. By 1880 only fifteen
per cent of the peasants- were

tradition had no influence and

ers, such as the Slavophils, hard-
ly any; the question was only be-

tween Liberals and Revolution-
aries, the choice between grad-
ual and precipitate change.
In 1861 the serfs were set free;
in 1866 a shot was fired at the
emancipating Emperor; in 1881
he was murdered. What will ex-
plain this sequence of events?
It is now that we are face to
face with the modern Russian
Intelligentsia. From Catherine
II onward, Russian educated so-
ciety had been 'intellectually Eu-

students, a new world had to be

From 1859 onward, many stu-
dents had engaged in teaching
Sunday schools organized by
Professor Pavlov, and others,
and teaching often became pro-
paganda; consequently all these
schools were closed. The Univer-

outcome of student riots.
On April 16, 1866, a young

Alexander II. Karakozov had
been connected with a Commun-
ist group of students; the mur-
der of the Emperor had been dis-
cussed in the group, but dismis-
sed. Karakozov, quite unbalanc-
'ed, took it upon himself to mur-
der the Emperor. From this time
the government lived in suspi-
cion of the sttidents. Count Dmit-
ry Tolstoy, who had even oppos-
ed the Emancipation,, replaced
Golovnin as Minister of Educa-
tion. The kindly Governor-Gen-
eral of Petrograd, Prince Suvo-
rov, was replaced by a police
martinet, General Trepov.

were outlawed and freedom of
the press abolished. Education
was limited, the gentry class was
bolstered, and attempts to post-
pone the operation of the great
reform of 1864 were made. Poli-
tical literature of the country
was circulated illegally. Colonel
Lavrev, a moral teacher, taught
that the world was to be changed
by education and persuasion.

"LET US PROVE WE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY"
98 BY-PASS IN PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA
TfHURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1968
It wasn't too long ago that we read in an area daily newspaper
about how the electric and heating bills at the new Courthouse
here in Port St. Joe were considerably higher than they were in the
old building in Wewahitchka. The daily stated that the electric
bill in the old Courthouse was around $99.85 per month on an av-
erage month basis, while the power bill in the new building is run-
ning in the neighborhood of $1,081.63 per month.
We didn't pay a lot of attention to the claims of the daily
until George Y. Core made a speech to the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day concerning some statistics in the new building. It was then
we drew the conclusion that the new building may be using more
electricity and fuel than the old building, but the cost wasn't higher.
There is a difference been increased use and higher cost. When
one considers the use, the cost is LOWER than in the old building. ,
For instance, (and this will grab you) the old Courthouse had
80 light bulbs in the entire building. The new building has 1,277
bulbs, excluding the jail. If the jail is included, the total will
probably run up to about 1,500 buibs. So we have nearly 11 times
the electric bill in the new building, but we have about 16 times the 4
light bulbs to burn the electricity. In addition, there is 100 tons of
air conditioning (which uses both gas and electricity) to keep the
building cool at all times. The old building had 10 tons of air con-
ditioning in the courtroom alone, and was used only when the
courtroom was used; which wasn't very often.
Another plus we must consider is that the new Courthouse has
an elevator between its two/floors; the old building did:not. In con-
conclusion, we can only surmise that the, new building is getting
much cheaper electricity than the old building; and is making a
great deal more use of this servant. '
Another point illuminated by the daily press, was the cost of
janitor service in the new building. The paper stated that the
janitorial service in the old building ran $245.00 per month for a
single custodian. These services in the new building cost $1,072.52
per month. But, again, let us go a step farther. There is 33,448
square feet of space in the new Courthouse, less the jail. The jail
would add another approximate 9,000 feet. The old building had
only 9,000 square feet in its confines. So we have four and a
half times the space to be looked after and the custodian salary
increased four times. Saving a little here too. We also want
to point out that there is some very complicated machinery to
be operated in the new building and the building is kept
Even the water bill came in for scrutiny in this searching article.
It was pointed out that the water bill in Wewahitchka ran $20.48 per
month while it runs $41.94 per month in Port St. Joe. But it was
not noted that the old Courthouse had only two restrooms in its
entire confines, plus one water fountain. The new building has
20 rest rooms and eight water fountains. No waiting anywhere.
/ The gas bill is something else. We suppose you would proper-
ly include it in with the electric bill, since the gas is used in the
all-weather air conditioning system. But we can point out a little
error here. The article listed the bill is being in excess of $600.00
per month. According to Mr. Core last Thursday (who, by the
way, pays the bills) the gas bill was running a little over $300.00
per month in the winter time. With the advent of air condi-
tioning weather, it has increased to slightly over $600.00 per
month. And, again, we point out that the building is comfortable
at all times.

From all the talk about planting
pine trees in Florida ... and saving
our forests from wildfire one
question is bound to arise:
Just how big is tree business in
the Sunshine State?
Just for the record, it rates big-
ger than citrus and in Florida
that's saying, quite a bit. The re-
tail value of forest products is in
the neighborhood of $1.2 billion
yearly. More than 100,000 Florida
people are employed in forest-re-
lated jobs. Payrolls of employees
in the forest and wood products in-
dustry amount to $155,000,000 per
i Florida is the nation's third larg-
est wood pulp producer. And in
fact commercial forests cover about
two-thirds of the entire state.
More Americans mean more peo-
ple using wood products. Ever
more modern living means higher

per capital use of wood products as
well. At present an estimated
5,000 different wood products are
on the market, and some authori-
ties insist the actual figure is
closer to 7,000.
Newsprint alone accounts for
about 20 per cent of our national
paper use. Fiberboard, soap, pack-
ing cartons, plastics, even phono-
graph records and camera film are
included on the list along with de-
licate flavoring for ice cream and

Equally important is the develop-
ment of a glittering variety of
chemical products including ni-
trates, acetates, pulp products,
lacquers, lignin, and others.
As wood is used in ever more
ways by ever more people, the
forests of Florida and those else-
where in the U. S. become even
more important. Again we are re-
minded that the forest must be a

SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR
Makes Good Sense
There's no doubt about it.
Many of us are too fat.
Almost everyone who is too
fat would like to slim down to
average size for his height and
build. Many women would like to
be on the skinny side.
The Americar'Medical Asso-
, action's home health book, To-
day's Health Guide, points out
that,most physicians consider obes-
ity an important factor in per-
sonal health for three reasons:
It is common.
It is associated with In-
creased sickness and death rates,
notably in respect to heart, circu-
latory, kidney, and metabolic dis-
orders as well as surgical and ob-
It can be successfully
treated fo help control associated
medical 'conditions. :
I Medical experience strongly
suggests greater risks for over-
weight persons in respect 'to most
of the major disorders besetting
our population. The evidence for
generally adverse effects from obes-
ity seems too massive and too con-
sistent to be ignored.
So we need to lose weight. It
should be simple: just cut down
on the calories. Unfortunately, it
often isn't simple. Taking fewer
calories than are needed seems to
be within the theoretical capabil-
ity of most of us. Yet results sug-
gest that this is difficult and often
not achieved. Long-term observa-
tions indicate poor success for
One factor involved in over-
weight is psychological. Emotional
factors are operative in all of us.
Psychological factors may help
cause overweight, or help to nqain-
tain It. Seldom is psychiatric con-
sultation required. The general
practitioner, the internist, the
pediatrician usually can provide
suitable guidance and support as
part of the weight-reduction pro-
gram, the AMA book says. The
physician's aim is to prod and re-
inforce our will to lose weight.
to help us be so determined to
trim off excess pounds that we will
stick to the reducing regime.
The physician may prescribe
drugs at first, as a crutch to help
Uts get started. These can reduce
appetite, promote a feeling of
well-being, add bulk in the stom-
-ach, eliminate excess fluids.. They
can, at best, afford only temporary
help. They postpone the day when
facts must be faced, when we fin-
ally make up our minds that we
must change our eating habits to
keep our weight under control.
