All For One Little X
After all the words, the-time consumed, the money
spent, the time traveled, the words said and printed all'
year this year about who should receive your vote and
why, it will all be'bver Tuesday. It seems sort of an anti- -
climax that all of this effort can be decided by merely mak-
ing an (X) at the proper place on a piece of paper or pull-
ing down a certain lever.
It would seem that anything which deserves so much
attention and effort as political campaigning would re-
sult in more effort oir complicated maneuvers on the part
of those casting the vote.
But that's the way we do things in America we
strive to make everything as easy as possible. But even
with all this preparation to make voting easy, many will
not part with that few moments in the day to express
their wishes and desires for their candidate.
After all of this time, one can hardly be undecided on
-'the question of whom he would like to see elected Or
at least, which of the three candidates would suit his fan-
cy best. This candidate should receive the elector's
for five minutes to respond to the long, urgent plea
of the candidates.
Talking "with a citizen the other day, he remark
"You know, a politician must want to serve people
or be crazy, to put forth all the effort he must expen
order to get elected".
If a candidate is willing to give up his private
business life for the better part of a year, in order to
come your servant in government, it hardly seems
that we will fail to cast a vote for or against the candid
.As we said before; it is easy. One must only
into the voting booth, identify yourself, receive a v(
certificate or a ballot and go into the booth and mark
ballot or pull the proper lever. That's all there is to it
If we don't cast our votes consistently and wisely
might see the day when voting will be made even ea
-we, might see the day when the name is printed on
ballot and marked for us.
* (" '
it'. T me T P ut : Up T Money
For one last time we'would like to urge you to go to
the polls next Tuesday and cast your vote in favor of the
proposed School Bond issue in the' amount of $1.1 mil-
lion dollars for the purpose of completing the plans drawn
up for the two new high schools currently, under con-
struction in Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka.
At the risk of boring you or confusing you with too
many figures, we will attempt to show you where the
money already obtained. and sought through the bond issue
will go in the school construction program.- One thing for
sure, there hasn't been any money wasted.
I MONEY ON HAND
The School Board started its building program with
$2.5 million. fWhis money was raised through revenue cer-
tificates, to be repaild by receipts of Gulf County's share
of state race track funds. This money figured in the first
letting of bids, with all the bids being over the money avail-
able, even though the low bidder was $300,000 less than the'
SThe base contract bid for that portion of the build-
ings niow under construction was $1,982,076. (All of these
figures will-be in round dollars). Thig.figure provided for
all the building and fIechanical, equipment with, the. e.xSce-.
tion of one pod for the Port St. Joe High School which hou-
ses gymnasium, classroom and special program facilities
and a portion of a pod in Wewahitchka which will house
several classrooms and some special activities atea. This
bid is considerably less than other bids submitted. It fig-
ures to about $13.50 a foot, which is inexpensive consider-
ing the price of other schools under construction in this,
Also included as expenditures out of the $2.5 million
issue, guaranteed for repayment through race track funds
was an expenditure of $72,463.60 for land acquisition;
$205,000 for various fees incurred in selling the bonds, the
fiscal agent, architect's fees, etc., all required by law.
In the original issue, $160,000 must be set aside in a re-
serve fund to meet any future payments that may be de-1
faulted. $141,000 went to make the first payment on the
bonds which became due before the race track money came
in to the county. ,
NEW BOND MONEY
Proposed in the new bond money, sought in the elec-
tion Tuesday will be completion of the two high school
buildings. We feel that enough has been said about what
Sis to be housed in the buildings that you should be famil-
iar with the fact that it is not wasted or "luxury" space.
In Port St..Joe, completion of the Port St. Joe High'
School plan will require $796,261. In Wewahitchka, com-
pletion of the building will require $106,793. This mon-
ey is for completion of the building itself. The remainder.
of the $1.1 million dollars has been designated for furnish- -
,ing both buildings, providing parking areas, bus loading
facilities, outside lighting, landscaping, etc.
When one considers that in Port St. Joe, alone, the
new school will have nearly five acres under one roof and
in Wewahitchka, about two-thirds this much, it isn't
hard to see that the School Bpard has secured a bargain
and provided thoroughly adequate facilities for at least
the next few years something Gulf County has never
had before. .
Actually, when you boil it down, the only question to
be decided is whether or not we wish our band to have a"
place to practice; do we wish to have a gymnasium ade-
quate for the school and the community; do we wish to:
provide classrooms for our driver's education, DCT, art,
choral, and special education classes? Do we wish to
provide adequate locker space (a point in losing high school,
accreditation) do we wish to provide adequate dressing
room facilities -(another factor in losing our accreditation)
do we want part of a building placed in a wide open field
with no drive-ways to speak of, no parking facilities, very,
little landscaping. Or do we want a complete, adequate
: building which will meet the needs of our county for at
least the next few years; a complete building at which we
may point with pride. .
There has probably been more written and more con-
versation in the last 20' years about the need for adequate
: school facilities in Gulf County than any other subject
alone. The time has come'to show whether you want it
or not. It's time :to -put up the money, or 'shut 'Up.
We sincerely hope that you vote to put up the money

kids out and about. _As a matter of fact, the kids just about "shut
up the town for the night".
The latest issue of Senator George Smather's "Washington
Newsletter starts off thusly: "With this Newsletter, I am concluding
the regular series of Washington Newsletters which I have been
sending to the people of Florida for nearly 22 years."
The ending. of something is always a sad occasion. I am sure
all of rus can feel.; for Senator Smathers bringing to' a close a life
he has led for 22 years. Such A step would be hard for anyone to
We counted up on our fingers and find out that the Port St.
Joe Sharks now need only two more wins to motivate that little
bicycle trip between here and Howard Creek for Principal Wal-
' 'ter Wjlder, School Board Member Gene Raffield and Coach Wayne
Taylor. The trip is becoming so near a reality now that the
volunteer participants are trying to crawfish on their vow. How-
ard Creek gets farther and farther away as one gets nearer and
nearer to the prospect of having to go there on a bicycle.
First Gene Raffield tried to back out, claiming he couldn't
find a bicycle that would carry him. Now Walter Wilder says
he doesn't have access to a bike. "I'll have to have one with gears
on it", he says. "I don't know how to ride any other kind sort
of like these people today who don't know how to drive a car that
has a manual shift". But we'll come up with transportation for
Walter, just like we did for Gene.
The only fellow who hasn't tried to back out is Wayne Taylor.
Wayne "is being smart. He is waiting for the seven victories be.
foire he tries to- back pedal. We look for Wayne to insist on a
motor bike. .
Somehow, though, we'believe the football team is now tough
enough, to collectively see that these three, braggarts carry out
their high talking. '.- *
I think I have watched my last Smothers Brothers show.
Last season, the show was just a good, entertaining program with
some laughs, some good music, occasionally and good comedy skits.
This year is something else,
Sunday ,night cappld it off when the Brothers had a comedy f
pkit lampooning the voracity of the Bible. When they go this far,
we have to part company with them. '
So, it's back to the "Ponderosa".

City Auditor and Clerk:
ALWAYS FIRST QALTY OUTSTANDING VALUES --
For U.S. SENATE
For over two decades I have enjoyed the privilege of representing the good peo-
ple of Florida as one of your United States Senators. My experience and observa-.
tion during that time have taught me well the basic requirements in one who.would
successfully serve his state in the Senate.
In mny judgement, LeRoy Collins' is thle best qualified man to seek a U.S., Sen-
ate seat from Florida in many years. He is Florida born and reared; he is an able
lawyer; he has had long and constructive experience in both Houses of the Florida
Legislature followed by' six years of distinguished service as Governor of our state;,
he and the state have "grown up together" and he has played a large part in its'
growth and success; his public service ha. made him completley familiar with every
area of Florida and with its potentials and problems. Governor Collins was select-
ed as Chairman of both the National and Southern Governors Conference, truly
significant honors, and also served with distinction as Chairman of the National
Democratic Convention in 1960 when President Kennedy was nominated.
At the request of the President, Governor Collins accepted a controversial con-
ciliation post with the Federal government knowing that to do so would be politi-
cally, hurtful to him. He responded to the call as would most loyal Americans.
His was a thankless job but he did it to the best of his abilityand did it well.
As Undersecretary of Commerce` governor Collins appeared many times be-
fore Congressional Committees. He has made friends nationally who will be of
great advantage to him as a Senator and to our state. He is already khown and
respected in Congress and elsewhere.
These are some of the reasons for'my support of LeRoy Collins for election to
the U.S. Senate. e is my friend and I can cqunt on him to work with me in the
Senate foi the best interests of the people of Florida afid the nation. I recommend
him to you as a man of conviction, courage and common sense.

DISEASE PREVENTION IN 'I
The best disease prevention for
ornamentals is to buy healthy or
disease resistant plants. A badly
diseased ornamental is almost im
possible to nurse back to bealtl.
Thus, every effort should be made.
to prevent introduction of disease-
causing organisms on plant mater-
ial or in the soil. Good cultural
practices and plant sanitation will
help prevent trouble. Diseased
branches should be removed 'as
soon As they appear, and pruning
wounds should be treated with a
specially prepared. material to stop
entrance of wood-decaying organ-

John C. Gainous, Post No. 10069
wishes to emphasize the import-
ance of the coming election.
There are 'many ways we can
band together to show our con-
cern for our fighting men in
Vietnam, but Mr. Comforter feels
one of the best is to vote accord-
ing to our own conscience.
Adlai Stevenson once said, "A'
campaign addressed not to men's
minds and to their best instincts
but to their passions, emotions
and prejudices, is unworthy at
best. Now, with the fate of the
nation at stake, it is unbearable."
So may we all be guided by
prayer and understanding on this'
very important day. Also, on

Many of today's "wonder drugs" are only adolescents
in the developing world of scientific miracles. The hy-
pertension drugs made their debut with Rauwiloid in
1953. And in 1954, tranquilizers were first released
for public consumption...the same year Jonas Salk
led the way for the dramatic breakthrough in polio con-

a little further we find that penicillin... which has
proved so necessary to life...has been in use just 19
years. It was only 14years ago that the antihistamines
first appeared on your Pharmacist's shelves. Bearing
these developments in mind, the future of prescrip-
tion drugs promises discoveries inconceivable to the
