Hospital Installs' New X-Ray
Port St. Joe .Municipal-Hospital installed
a brand new X-Ray machine last week, to
replace an old 18 year old machine which
was not 'now capable of performing the
hospital's X-ray needs.
The new, machine is a combination
'X-ray and fluoroscope machine of the latest
design and capabilities.'
The new machine was purchased by
the hospital for $27,700, cash. The hospital
: paid $20,000 toward the purchase price with
/ the City of Port St. Joe paying the remain-,
The new machine offers much more
versatility than the old machine. For in-
stance, an accident victim need not be re-
moved from his stretcher to get X-rays. The
machine can be adjusted to X-ray a pa-
tient in any position, in any part of the
X-ray room from several different angles.
.-i at the' same time. '
The X-ray tube travels on an. overhead
' track which allows it to be moved anywhere
in the room. The new machine has a photo
timer which reduces radiation to the pa-
tient as opposed to the amount received
from the old machine.
Miss Minerva McLane, Hospital Admin-
istrator said that the.n.ew machine should
. servethe hospital's X-ray needs for many
years to come.
Dr. Donald Anderson, radiologist, who
does the' hospital's radiological work said.
that the new machine "exceeds anything in
this area." ..' ..
SThe problem created over the
release of Mrs. Elizabeth Jones
-as librarian of the Port St. Joe
branch.: df the. county-regional
library' system finally came; to,
a head Tuesday at the regular
meeting of the County Board
with the Board agreeing to- go,
along with the decision of :re-
gional librarian, AfIs.. Jane Pat-
tonr in replacing Mrs. Jones.
The entire Library Board, con-
sisting of' C. ,. Daniell, chair-
man, Mrs. Sam Brilt,, Mrs. Flor-
.ine Redfern. and Mrs. W.,B. Sim-
mons were- all present at the
meeting.'.Mrs. Britt, Mrs. Redkern
and Mrs. Simmons backed up
Mrs; Patton's action, but .Daniell
-refused to vote either'way "be- -
cause the Library Board mem-
bers are without the power to
make a decision in. this matter",
indicating that. the decision of
whether to release Mrs. Jones or
not was left ub to Mirs, Patton's
SThe consensus of the County
Board JWas that they realized
their agreement with the Region-
J.al Library Systnim gave tbem no
authority in the matter but that
they could envision all of Gulf's
librarians being released in fa-
vor of out-of-the-county college
trained librarians arid they did
not approve of such an action.
The Library Board members
assured the County Commisison
that this was not the intention
of the Regional Library.
Mrs. Patton had given as her
reason for releasing Mrs. Jones
as being because she was unable
to properly help library consti-
tuents in research matters. The

ABM Could Be Peaceful Sign
The question of whether or not to continue work on
the'ABM protection system 'continues to rage inWashing-
,toJi, with the opponents getting louder and louder.
The opponents are hitting hard at the idea that the
.nation doesn't need the. Aniti-Ballistic Missille program
and that any effort to create such a system would indi-
cate "warlike tendencies" toward other nations of the.
Maybe it's not for us to judge, but some of the ar-t
gumetits against the system seem to come from the mind
of a nan who has.kept his.head in the sand for the past
. deade or two, or who is so adept at turning the other
'cheet, that he knows of no other way to react- .
To, say that construction' qf an ABM system would
display "warlike tendencies" in our opinion is asini.ty.
A look at the history of this country would show even the
casual observer that this nation has never fired the first
shot in anger .,.. in all its history. This nation has never
gone out of its way to provoke a war.. This nation has
never--even when war was inevitable and it would" be
prudent for us to do so-fired the first shot in any con-
flict. We have perennially: been akin to the "'good guys"
in the.cowboy movies, we have given our enemies the first
This \habit of ours has cost us 'dearly .in. men and
materiel in the past. It has meant that-we have had to
fight from. far behind on at least- two occasions even to
catch up before we started winning. In an atomic war,
we, as a nation,, cannot afford to jut out our manly chin,
tuck our lethal right behind our back and say, "Hit me,
then you better duck!" Our opponents know they will, not
now have to duck if we allow them the first blow.
Because of our methods of behaving ourselves in the>
world neighborhood; because of our strong but good-na-
tured, temperament which is-not easily provoked, we think
it is mandatory that we have the ABM, if it can be made
-'toy work effectively. .
Rather than "break the faith" with other nations of
the world, we believe that its construction would say
dince more to everyone, "We will not strike first., We will
do our best to weather your first blow ... then you bet-
ter duck!" '
S If-we intend, to. continue our practice of allowing our
enemies the first blow, let's try to be prepared to weather
it. In our thinking, the ABM could be a further statement
of owr peaceful intentions, but firmly convince others that
we intend to survive.
.Wha. Des EconomyMean?
By this time the huge' gavel has been sounded and
the Florida Legislature is formally in session. The various.
committees have been. meeting for weeks ironing out the
pre-filed 'and proposed legislation, but now it's legal .
, the votes count with a final "Aye" or "Nay".'
'It seems thai almost every newspaper in the state has
written editorials concerning the present session. Most
of them are concerned with exercising a few economies in
government. This is desirable; even necessary.. The big
problem will be to decide whose program gets chopped off
or cut back. Regardless of which program fails-to get
financing, it will be the wrong one. We recognize the
Problems of the Legislature. -
Everyone's program is important. I The State will go
,to' pot if our pet program isn't; included in' the state's fu-
ture plans.. But something must be- cut.
We here in Port St. Joe feel that 'it is imperative
that our State Park, over on the Peninsula receive more
financing. We also feel that money should be provided, to
begin work on the Sunland Training Center recreation area
on the Peninsula. These are vital items. ,
The importance of more money for the park can be
,born otit in the fact that already in this young season, the
park has been filled to overflowing with campers from as
far away as Michigan. Over the past week end many of
the camping spaces had to care 'for two campers, with
other campers pitching camp outside the designated area,
because of, lack of room and facilities. This calls for more
money for more development to take care of those wishing
to use the camp. /
We must face the possibility that money will hot be
provided for the Park. An economy minded Legislature
might think other needs are greater.
We are not taking the 'defeatest attitude. We are
not advocating that we layr down and play dead regardless
of what our outcome for more Peninsula' development
funds. We think we should fight at every turn for the ap-
propriations necessary. We are merely pointing out what
economy in government means it means 'that somebody
isn't going to get what they think they need.

It's a common saying among Baptist preachers that those who
love the church will be there on Sunday morning. Those who love
the preacher will show up on Sunday night. Those who love the
Lord will be on hand for Wednesday night prayer meeting.
In what category would one place the several 'who braved the
threatening elements and the early hour Sunday morning to attend
the Easter Sunrise services in the football stadium?
We see where the CBS television network has cancelled the
contract of the Smothers' Brothers for doing too much of "their
thing" on CBS' network facilities.
Tommy Smothers (who plays the dumb brother) appeared recent-
ly at a hearing in Washington concerning obscenity on television
and declared that his show was doing the country a favor. When
asked about his slipping ratings, Tommy replied, in effect, that those
who criticized the show's format just didn't know what they were
talking about and that he knew more what the country needed than
did ,its citizens.
No, you have it wrong. He just ACTED like the dumb one.
This matter of "entertainment" is getting a little out of hand.
" We were reading something about this matter last week in a na-
tional magazine which stated that there is now so much nudity in '~
plays, movies, etc., that the public has become somewhat jaded to

around naked holding polite conversation.

The Supreme Court has gone and done if again. Stuck their
foot ,right into their collective mouth. -
In a recent action, the Court ruled that students can no longer
be punished for saying what they want in the public schools, even
to criticizing the material in' the textbooks, criticizing the teacher
for presenting the material, and even to rebelling against the cur-
riculum of the school. In other words, students can no longer be
required to abide by the rules. Something about this being the
land of the free and the home of the brave.
I guess this now means that these same students may even pray
arid read the bible in school once more, if they should so choose.
We picked up.this article the other day we thought you might
like to read:
"What with all the disturbances in our public schools these days,
we thought it might amuse you to read what Richard LaPiere had
to say in his classic book, 'The Freudian Ethic.' "
"The proponents of publicly'supported schools were soon claim-
ing that the schools would, in a generation or two, be the cure for
y every recognized social ill; and that the schools would, moreover, in 1.
the- course of time, cost the taxpayer nothing, since .the educated
boys would grow up, to be reasonable and honest men and the need
gfor public support of jails, prisons, po6r farms, and homes for the
aged indigent would thus be eliminated.
"Public-school education for all (all males, that is) would,
f further, purify both local and national politics ..."
That is what the proponents of a publicly-suported ,school
- system were saying in the 1830's.

indeed is the American citizen who
does not understand thei mport-
ance of conservation ,the necessity
of a well ordered and protected
forest. Even if huge materials and
many derivatives were not involv-
ed, the simple and unadorned vital
element to life itself-water--
would be involved.
Water, too, is a wellspring of
life in the American home, on the
farm and throughout all segment
of industry. Here again it is the
managed forest that serves to pro-
tect, sustain and actually improve
our suppliess of available wate
The floor of the :managed forces'
soaks up water like a sponge, pro-
tectinig the soil from erosion anr
filtering clear water into lakes
The protective humus that car-
pets the managed forest also feeds
the underground reservoirs 'with
water for future use. Wood and
water are, fully compatible under
the multiple 'use principle of tim-
berland, management. Without, ex-
ception, the water yield on man-
aged watersheds is increased thru
proper- conservation practices.
There must be more water to
serve the needs 'of home, industry
irrigation and recreation. Already
some areas are short.
I The forested watershed is the
chief barrier to floods and dev
station of soil through erosion. This
means more clear water for farm,
homes and industry. Many muni.
cipalities today are protecting their
water supplies by managing their
watersheds as Tree Farms.

saving the forests is pure and sim-.
