There's an old saying that everything does somebody
sonie 'good, io matter how bad it mnay appear on the 'sur-'
face.' No dbubt the same holds true for the pay raise
approved by the House and Senate last week and now
awaiting the approval or the veto of Governor Claude Kirk.,
We can see some good coming out of the pay raise.
It should mean a bonanza for the printers, the adver-
tising people and mass media come next Spring '(or next.
Fall if a proposal to shift the State's elections comes
about). We remember well last Spring when these same
Legislators who deplore their present salary were lined up
several deep trying with tooth, toe nail and a well rubbed
rabbit's foot to get those sorry jobs which paid only $120Q
'p,>er year (plus fringe benefits).
if the $1200 per year was,what drew prospective
Legislators into the iigors of trying to get elected in the
past, we can foresee a list of candidates- in the future that
would stagger the imagination. Anybody would like to
have that $12,000 a year salary and will be willing to go to
some lengths to get it. This means more work for those
who supply the election materials.
Another good thing we see in the hike in Legislator's
-,salary is that the political rallies will no longer want for
a crowd in attendance. .At some rallies in the past, the
crowds have been sparse. '-Even at'the "big rallies" the
crowds during the past election or two have not been what
they should be. AlHthis is over now. With the, prospects
'for Legislative candidates, just these candidates alone,
waiting their turn to speak, will swell the crowds tremen-
When we' read some of the Legislators comments on'
the-need for the pay raise, we almost find ourselves writ-
'ing a letter of thanks to the various members for their,
'unselfishness at begging to. serve us at these despicable
salaries. But then we remember that in almost in every.'
case not a one of them was pushed into the fray. I!t was
.a voluntary,- almost a desired '-- thing with them.
A "third "good thing" to come out of the pay raise is
or can be to Governor Kirk's benefit. The pay raise can
be very gobd f6r him if he vetoes the bill. It should
almost guarantee him another crack at the State's Gover-
,; The Pensacola Journal noted that, one Leislator said
he thought they ought to get paid at least half 'of what
the Governor gets. The Journal said this might be a valid
argument if there was only one Legislator.

Finally work has started in earnest on the Courthouse
lawn. This past week the lawn was leveled and fertilizer spread.
The materials have arrived for installation of the sprinkler system
and work is expected to get under way in the next few days to get
the system installed. As soon as the sprinkler system is installed,
the planting of the grass will get under way.
Clerk George Y. Core told me the other day that some, in a
fit, of public service, had' volunteered in the past to help with the
sprinkler' system installation and the grass planting.
Where are all you ,volunteers now?
*' ..., + I wonder what North Korea is trying to hide from the United
States and the World trying to hide enough, to want to risk
serious retalliation or even war with the most powerful nation
.,. on earth?.
Even' the leaders of NortIh Korea should know that their
capture of the Pueblo or shooting down the EC121 reconnisance
plane would not scare away ,our efforts to. find out what they
are hiding. The only purpose they have accomplished is prevented
the immediate detection' of whatever the Pueblo ori-the plane
had happened upon at that particular moment.
It -was announced in the papers this past week that Bishop
Pike has left the' Episcopal Church. There wasn't much he could
do since the Church lift him a while back m'ad, for good rea-
son. It's been many a day since churches threw members out for
not meeting the rules and regulations of the church. The Bap-
tist church use to do' this a lot, but they don't any more.
Pike. says he has given up hope for the organized church. As
long as the organized church continues to not accept actions and
'.aspirations such as those of Bishop pike, we think the contrary is
,/true. There is still hope for the organized church. /
An article '.in the Tallahassee Democrat last Friday sort of
compared Representative John Robert Middlemas to Don Quixote
that Spaniard who fought a duel with a windmill;
The article inmthe Democrat stated,'.He has voted against prayer
in schools, tfor higher taxes,. for a unicameral legislature, for higher
welfare payments ... He supports the U.S. Supreme Court's rul-
ings on the rights of criminal defendants and helped lead the fight
in the House last week against the wiretapping bill." The article
,defined John Robert Middlemas as a liberal in a conservative area.
"I hope I'm not too far out of step with my people", Middlemas
If Mr. Middlemas doesn't' take a closer look at "his people"
before next election, he very may as well fight a windmill as to
seek re-election in this conservative bastion he represents.
It took a lot of figuring out, but we finally came to the con-
clusion that on Saturday night you 'will take up your clock, grasp
the time setting' device firmly hand, and twist it until the hands on
the clock are set one hour .earlier than they now are. Eastern Day-
lighf Savings time goes into effect sometime between the tim you go

USDA quality grades for beef
have been around a long time -
since 1927. But USDA yield grades
are fairly new to the consumer. In
fact, they've just been around four
years, says Agricultural Extension
What's the difference between
the two? Quality grades we recog-
nize as Prime, Choice, Good Stan-.
dard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter
and Canner. They'er our guide to
the eating quality of beef its
tenderness, juiciness and flavor.
Yield grade, on the other hand,
is: designated in just simple num-
bers from one through five. A
Yield Grade 1 beef lias the great-
est yield of retail cuts, while
Yield Grade 5 has the lowest.
For the consumer who buys a
half or quarter of beef at a time,
knowing the yield grade before-
hand is a good guide to what he's
getting for his money. If the meat
is advertised as Yield Grade 1, he
can expect about 80 percent of, that
beef carcass will be good lean meat
With a Yield Grade 5, just slightly
more than 60 percent is good lean
Of course, in buying quality beef
this way, the consumer pays Apr
the total weight before trimming.
So in the case of the Yield Grade
1 besides the edible meat, he's
paying for about 20 percent of fat
and bone. But with the Yield Grade
5, he's paying for nearly 40 per-
cent fat and bone.
So if you're planning to buy
beef in large quantities, ask about
the USDA Yield Grade. Remember,
the lower the number, the more
edible meat you'll be-buying. The
higher the number, the more fat
you'll have to pay for.
The chinch bug is probably one
of the most destructive pests that
could invade St. Augustine grass
lawns this.spring. The time is near
when gardeners should begin wat-
ching for chinch bugs. The insects
seriously damage St. Augustifie
grass only. Chinch; bugs suck the
plant juices through their needle
like beaks and apparently cause
other internal injury to the grass.
Yellowish brown patches occur in
the lawn and usually are first no-
ticed along edges of the lawn grass.
SWhen chinch bugs are present 'in
sufficient numbers to cause a yel-
low or brown discoloration of the
turf, they can be seen by pushing
the grass runners aside and looking
at the soil below. Small red or
black bugs with, white markings on
their backs will be seen scurrying
along the soil surface. One insecti-
cide treatment rarely prevents da-
mage for the whole season. Thus,
homeowners with St. Augustine
grass lawns should be on a con-
tinual watch for chinch bugs and
use one of several insecticides ef-
fective in this pest such as V-C 13,
Trithion, Ethion and Diazinon.-
