Tentative School Budget
Reduced by 2.83 Mills
The Gulf County School Board
met Tuesday and tentaively set
their budget for the new school
year at $2,061,679.08. This re-
Mflects an increase of $608,994.46
over last year with all of the in-
crease coming from increased
state money coming into the
county. The increased state mon-
ey was more than the budget
-hike, which was reflected in a'
reduction of local ad valorem
The rate of taxing locally for
the -new budget year has been
tentatively set at 11.28 mills, a
reduction of 2.83 mills, over last
year. The reduction was made
possible by the increased 'state'
money and increased property
valuations (expansion at St. Joe'
Paper Company and the SCM
'The largest increase in the ex-
penditures side of the budget is
in instructional salaries, as would
be expected after the special ses-
sion of the Legislature giving
teacher salary hikes during this
past spring. Salaries for teachers
jumped from $899,174.00 last
year to $1,073,940.00 for the

with administration getting $64,-

item took $50,603.52 last year.
Operation of plants was expand-
ed by $18,250 to $109,750.. Main-
tenance of plants was set at $46,-

from $38,000 to $46,135..

Time To Landsc
When a young couple gets married and starts a new
family in. their chosen community, the first thing they
think of is purchasing and owning a nice new home ...
a home they can be proud of and put their energies and re-
But this new home doesn't come easy. Most young
married couples are dead broke. They need everything-
and that "everything" costs money. But by scrimping,
saving and "wanting" a home very badly, they somehow
manage to get the down payment, together and make a
deal for at least a nice '"second-Jand" home or they rea-
lize their fondest dreams and purchase a new home.
A new home means new furniture to most every wo-
man. So the young marrieds begin figuring again and
after a while, they have as much new furniture hi their
new home as they can conscientiously obligate themselves
for. After all this, the young couple is pretty well strap-
ped. But regardless of their financial condition, most
young couples are proud and happy over their new home
regardless of the debt they owe.
Even with all of this figuring to get a new home and
new furniture, the couple still wants other people to enjoy
their new place of abode, so they set about to make the
outside pleasing to the eye. Regardless of their debt;
their obligations; they somehow manage to make their
new home pleasing to the eye on the outside as well as on
the outside .. .and usually they are not very long at it.
Which brings us to the parallel.
Gulf County has secured for itself a new home. It
was with pride that the County moved into this new home
: in February of this year, complete with new furnishings
and all. We .too were pretty well strapped to pay for it
-though not so much that we; cannot- bear the load.
About one eighth of our tax load for county purposes goes
to pay for this new home, which isn't as great a percent-
age, as the average person obligates himself for a new
Why is it that we haven't been as proud of this home
ah the young couple moving into their new home? Why
',haven't we begun yet to landscape our new home and make
it as presentable on the outside as-it is 'on the inside? We
feel that the grounds of the new Courthouse could have
been' landscaped to some degree by this time in spite of
being short of cash.

is high time to dress our $1 million building up in a suit-
able outside wardrobe.
Complete School NeededNow!
Mayor Frank Pate made a statement at the ground
breaking ceremony for the new Port St. Joe High School
Saturday afternoon, with which we can wholeheartedly
agree. We think it is time for others besides the school
, board to start thinking on this subject and bring it to
Mayor Pate challenged the school board in his ad-
dress in suggesting that they proceed in finding a way
to finish the building on which construction was begun
this past week. As you know, a portion of the building
was left off for lack of money.
The school board has done things in the past that'
we could not agree with 'and they have met our approval
on many occasions. We feel the same can be said of your
feelings toward the board. But we believe that everyone
can concur with their plans of providing adequate and.
serviceable facilities for our children now and in the fu-
ture. It would be a pity to force some of these plans
out of the running because of a lack of money.
We were glad to see the Mayor come out and endorse
the completion of this school and hope that each of you,
as individual citizens, will do the same. Mayor Pate made
his statement knowing that it would cost money, and the
only place this money can come from is from him and the
other tax payers of this county.
It will cost us money to complete our new school'
building as the plans call for. It will cost each tax payer
approximately $1.75 per year for each $1,000 of taxable-
property he owns.
When our new high school building is finished-if
it is finished completely-we will be proud of one of the
finest buildings in the state of Florida; and is Superin-
tendent Craig says, "that takes in .a ,lot of territory the
other side of Blountstown". We 'will have one of the,
most serviceable buildings in the state at about the lowest
cost per square foot of any building now under construc-
tion in thh state.
If we do not insist upon full completion at this time,
it will be several years before it is ever finished. In the
meantime, we will have an unfinished plant that looks
"unfinished". We will have some phases of our school
program inadequately housed and with improper facilities
even after spending nearly one and a half million dollars
to provide for new and up-to-date facilities.
Some months back our teachers struck charging im-
proper provision of teaching facilities and tools. We char-
ged that the teachers were wrong in their beliefs because"
we were in the process of bringing a new, modern plant.

only be proving that the teachers were right in their rea-

The peasantry at first kept up
a series of local uprisings, which

the most ruthless measures.
Their conspirative experience in
the past enabled the Bolsheviks

and in the army, to anticipate
any movement agaisnt them.
Free use was also made of a sys-
tem of hostages. In this way
perished two of Russia's finest

Ever since Russia started their "maneuvers" in Czechoslovakia
we have'been' watching the papers. The demonstrations just, had ::
to start. The Russian embassies in the capitals of the world just
had to become the targets of stones, ink, mobs, fire bombs, etc. It
just had to be. It has happened in the past to the U. S. for '"Inter-
fering" in Vietnam, in Lebanon, in Israel, etc.
But the riots and demonstrations didn't come. Not in London,
not in Paris, not in Stockholm, not in Hong Kong, nor Brisbane, nor
Toronto' not even in Prague.
One or two national columnists have wondered why the Gov-
ernment of the United States has not made world-wide notice of
the Russians forcing their attentions upon a small, helpless coun-
try by the big, giant bear, but other than that. .. nothing.
This would seem to back up our contention of last week that
riots in our day are not spontaneous. They are well planned .. by
enemies of the U. S. The Czech problem should also cause the
Government of the United States to consider riots aganist our em-
bassies in other nations for what they are and not as a spontaneous .
opinion of the people of those nations.

Too Late To Classify
S, ,,y RUSSELL KAY
by RUSSELL KAY
Sometimes I find a bit of light
verse the most effective way to
express my, feelings sq I contrib-
ute the following for whatever
thought-provoking ability it may -
A slovenly sloth
Clung tight to his tree.
Although upside down
'He knew he was FREE.,
While other varmints
Sought Federal Aid
Demanded their rights
And marched in parades
/Mr, Sloth just hung there,
Content with 'his lot.
And seldom gave lifd a serious
"Sure I'm upside down he, mus-
ed with glee,
But the World is much :UP-
SIDE DOWNER than me."
With all the crazy marching,.
rioting, civil disobedience and
protests over just about anything
and everything throughout our
world today we seem to have lost
all sense of values .and have
reached a point where so many
folks are screaming for a guaran-
teed income without work, more
authority, more control whether
qualified or not, the world truly
seems to be UPSIDE DOWN.
It seems that about all our
institutions of. higher learning
have accomplished as far as edu-
cation is concerned, is' to have
produced a new breed of cats
that are opposed to any form of
control or discipline. They con-
tend that anybody over 30 years
of age are so stupid and dumb
they are unable to gasp, the
truth and are warts on the march
We are warned that if we
don't stand and deliver we can
expect to see our cities burned
to the ground, our government
destroyed, our schools and col-
leges taken over, and, our lead-
ers don't seem to have any an-
swers. They sit around biting
their little pink fingernails, wor-,
trying aboid how many voted
they might loseif they say this
or how- many votes they Maay
win if they do that.
In the meantime the millions
of hard working taxpayers wh6
are called upon to provide the
money for work without pay, au-
thority without ability, are left
holding the bag Those honest
God-fearing citizens are afraid
to walk our streets, afraid to call
their souls their own and as they,
look over the list of aspiring pol-
iticians who seek their votes, see
nothing that indicates aid or
comfort as far as they are con-
cerned. The law and order they
have been trying to maintain are
eroded day to day as lawmakers,
courts and other agencies do
their utmost to protect the crim-
inal, the trouble maker, the indi-
gent and agitators, who-can do
anything, say anything and hide
behind the same constitution that
was designed to protect the hon-
est citizen and deter the crimi-
Maybe we can return to sense
and, sanity before it is too late
but the outlook is not promising,
Public apathy has permitted
hate, intolerance arnd agreed to
take over and tomorrow is any-
