Wallace Is Making 'Big Waves
George ,Wallace, the -former Alabama 'governor, is
driving "The Establishment"' crazy with his candidacy
for president of the' U, S. I
Both major parties are trying to figure' out what
is happening to them. Governor Wallace seems to. be
getting, into position to take as high as 10. million votes
and to throw the whole election procedure into a tailspin.
If no "candidate gets a majority of the Yotes (aid it
seems that Governor Wallace will keep either-of the 'ma-
- jor candidate- from getting. a majority), the House of
Representatives fill elect the president, sort of the 'way
the state (Ga.) House of Representatives elected Governor
Each state will have one vote and it will go to the
candidate who gets the majority of.,the congressmen from
the state. Some states, including Georgia, will see a tight
squeeze between the three candidates, with some favor-
ing! Wallace and some favoring the other two, according
to lfarty affiliation.
.. In recent days, Governor Wallace is talking as if he
plans not to just be a "spoiler" but that he feels'he has a
good chance of taknjg all the marbles--the" presidency.
We do not have the ability to figure all the angles, as
the pollsters do, but we can safely predict that Governor
Wallace is really going to.make some waves in this presi-
dential year. He's going to have a strong influence on
the, trends in 'this country.
---Hquston Home-Journal (Perry, Ga.)
In. keeping with this observation, we might take note
of recent opinions by party leaders, that Wallace's vote
won't amount to anytlhAngso' far as selecting the President
is concerned-that he will be in no position to "deal" re-
.gardless of the outcome (unless lie wins, of course).
The theory is that the Democratic Congressmen will
vote for the Democrat 'and the Republicans' for the Repub-
lican, should tle election be thrown into the' House. -The
talk is that Wallace's strength (or lack of it) at the polls'
will have to .affect on the final decision.
We differ from that thought. We believe that, the
gioundswell'.or h. desire for "a change" is too strong in.
'our nationi- today 'for any ambitious politician to ignore"
the ,rumblings back home in favor of party politics. 'We
believe that should George Wallace's strength force the
selection. ,f a President into the House of Representatives
it will represent a sizeable vote of "no. confidence" in either
pirty'by the people of this nation. This vo.tb cannot go

THE LONG HOT SUMk IS H1RE
There is no doubt that the long, hot, summer has ar-
rived here in Port St. Joe, what with temperatures hover-
ing dangerously close to 100.
With no escape from the heat possible, it is no wonder
people become frustrated in their efforts to remain cool
and comfortable even with air conditioning.
A good example of this frustration was seen by us
Saturday afternoon. We had gone' over to avenue D to
take our "household technician", Mary Jordan home, when
we spied a ihan walking up the street with a box of ice
cream cones. He was taking a cool treat home to his fam--
. ily, but the rate they were melting and dripping to the
sidewalk made the odds of his getting home with any-
thing cool very remote.
The true frustration of summer!
"The Rise of Communism'
The Bolsheviks did not at the
outset d&re to hope for any per-
manence of their power. Their.
aim, as with the Communists of'
Paris in 1871, was to give such
object lessons of, their princi-
ples as might promote imitation
in industrial countries..
The Bolshevik .leaders kept
their party under vigorous disci-
pline and neither claimed nor
desired a membership of more
than 500,000. The National Coun-
cil elected the Ministers of Com-
missaries, of whom Lenin was

in Russia and, in particular, the
skilled workmen had generally
sided with the Mdnsheviks
-against the Bolsheviks, but
strikes were now declared to. be
illegal on the ground that "the
people had its own government."
The workers' control resulted
in the looting of plant and pro-
ducts. The assurance of fixed
wages independent of wo rk
brought production down to one-.
sixth, so that these principles
were later abandoned and even
replaced by a conscription of la-
bor. Bank credits and banks
themselves-with the exception,
for some time, of the Co-opera-
tive Bank of Moscow-were abol-
ished, and all the land was de-
clared to be national property
(Nov. 8, 1917). What land that
had been purchased by the pea-
sants under the Czars was now
taken from them.
Church property was confis-
cated with the rest. The Bolshe-
vist Government declared itself
hostile to all religions, and a
i. 3o. quotation from Marx describing
it as "opium for the people" was.
affixed to one of the oldest
iats shrines in Moscow. Priests were,
$S.oo murdered. Houses were confis-
cated and used by the govern-
isen .' meant to satisfy 'the housing
r ab needs of the population.
Peace negotiations were start-.
htfui ed and Russia was forced to ac-
o7 cow cept the terms prescribed to
them at Brest-Litovsk, which cur-
tailed Russia all the territory
gained westward since the time
of Peter the Great. An accom-
panying economic treaty pro-
vided for the German exploita-
tion of Russia.
Without a disciplined army the
Bolsheviks were powerless and
had to accept the terms of the
armistice as dictated by Ger-
many. The defeated parties look-
ed toward the West for salva-
tion. Resistance was organized in
the South. Socialist Revolution-
ary members formed resistance
- groups on the Lower Volga; Ke-
rensky led a Czech legion against
the Germans. Kerensky sent a
portion of his legion to Ekaterin-
burg to rescue the Royal family
from the Bolsheviks but they ar-
rived too late. The Royal family
was butchered in the cellar on
16th. and the next day a number
of other Romanovs were thrown
down a mine shaft at 'Ala-
The efforts of some Russian
generals and Kerensky and Korn-
shiv to continue the fight against
the Germans came to nothing.
The counter-attacks from every
side served' to prolong that
reign of force which made pos-
sible such sharp centralization,
such an absolute dictatorship, as
that of the Bolsheviks. In their
apartness and isolation from the
rest of the, world, opposition
stimulated them and kept them

We took a little trip last Friday evening over to Panama City
along with E. F. "Red" Gunn, Walter Dodson, Phonso Gilbert and
Bob Ellzey, that was an adventure. We all went to welcome Mr.
Gurney and Strom Thurmond to Northwest Florida.
Phonso went over to shake the hand of a man for whom he
had cast his ballot for President in years past (he allowed as how
a person doesn't get to this too often and he's right, at that).
"Red" Gunn went because he is going to be Gurney's Gult County
campaign chairman. Walter Dodson went along to pay the bills,
but "Red" wouldn't let him. Bob Ellzey went along to introduce
everybody (he knows every politician in the State of Florida). I
went along to observe and drive home. r
We met Gurney at the airport, :along with a motorcade and
joined the parade through Panama City. "Red" was driving at
this point and he had a ball. "It was worth the trip over here
just to get to run through all these red lights without being ar-
rested", he chortled.
We met a lot of interesting people, heard a lot of "our kind"
of talk, enjoyed a fine steak supper, and a very congenial reception
for Mr. Gurney and Mr. Thurmond.
We think times have changed, terribly when we look about
us and see the fashions of the kids; when we realize that no kid
of 14 years or older rides a bike anymore; when we see the mar-
ble fading from the scene, and the change in "music" that ham-
mers at our eardrums each and every day.
We think that all the change has occurred with the kids and
teen-agers of our age but it' hasn't. Adults have come in for
their share of change also.
As close by as only ten years ago, a Republican candidate
for office wouldn't have wasted his time making. a special trip
to Northwest Florida. And, even if he did, he could not hope
to have a 30 to 40 car escort meet him-manned mostly by Demo-
crats--and give him the "dignitaries' tour" of the area.
We have changed the nation has changed the world'
has changed. Congressman Gurney told his supporter& in Pan-
* ama City last Friday, "The people want a change". They demon-
strate this by bringing about unheard-of changes every day.
Gurney thinks he stands a good chance of carrying Northwest
Florida, and he is probably right in his assumption. 'In the pri-
maries, we heard more than one remark, "We're going -to vote for
Collins because we think he will be the easiest man for Gurney to
beat in the' general election". .
To hear talk like this in historically Demdcratic Northwest
Florida is the most radical of changes.

Graham asked Mr. Fox-if the Citv's
application for loan to expand the
water facilities included the popu-
lation of Oak Grove and if the
plans in said application reflected
the future city limits expanding to
the South. Both questions answered
in the negative. Comm. Graham
said that he has nothing in writing
as to the cost per Oak Grove custo-
mer; however, if the cost as report-
ed to him is-correct, then that a-
mount would be considered as e--
cessive and would be holding up
the citizens of that community -
Comm. Kennedy explained -h is
views as to extending city lines to
Oak Grove. Cnmm. Graham
stated that the Countv wanted
water to be put to Oak Grove Mr.

from the train cars which ran

mile to the deep water,
The Apalachicola Northern's"
first train intq Port St. Joe was
in late 1909. The locomotives
burned' wood until 1925, coal til
1940 and fuel oil until 1947. The
last two locomotives were sold
to the Mexican National Railroad
in 1947 and they were replaced
with modern diesels.
Mr. Howell, who has seen
many changes in railroading
over the years, was engineer on
the first diesel to.leave out of
Port St. Joe. For 21 years he was
engineer on diesels and thus had
the opportunity to measure their
'strength against the old steam
powered locomotives. It is esti-
mated that he has traveled over'
two million railroad miles be-
Mr. Howell resides with his,
wife at 209 Eighth Street in Port -,
St. Joe. He has lived in Port St.*".'

of two. years when he ran a local
freight train out of Chattahoo-'.
