Port St. Joe's City Commis-
sioners received their first draft
of the City's new budget for the
fiscal year 1970 from City Audi-
tor and Clerk Charles Brock at
their regular meeting Tuesday
night. The new budget outline.
was some higher than last year's
budget, with the increase-nmost--
ly due to a command from the.
State of Florida to make some.
radical changes in the City's,
sewage disposal system. ThetCity
'Dads are planning to include a.
-,cash item of $100,000 in the new
budget and the 1971 budget to.
pay cash for the needed changed.:
The City has received word
from the State of Florida (as
have most small, cities in the
state) that they may no longer
"usea primary disposal-system by
the new State pollution control
laws. The City must go to a sec-
ondary system which will in-
volve the construction of prac-
tically an entire new disposal
system. This must be done with-
in the next two years.
Other items being considered
for purchase in.thle new budget
include purchase of. three lots
to the rear of. the City Hall, a
new Police Department cruiser,
a street sweeper, and several
Last year's City budget was
financed with a 7.5 mill levy
and the Commission expressed a
desire, Tuesday night, not to
raise the mill rate unless it was
absolutely necessary. The neces-
sity of a new sewage disposal
may make it necessary.
On the bright side, Clerk
Brock reported that. the City
should end the current fiscal
year with around $118,000 sur-
plus money to "be carried over
into next year's budget.
The Board ;has set their first
Tax Equalization Board meeting
for Monday evening at 8:00 p.m.
when the Commissioners' will
receive Brock's tax roll and ex-
amine it. At' this meeting the
Board will discuss the rolls with
Brock and suggest any changes
they may have. ...
-On Tuesday night, July 15, at
7:00 p.m., the' Board will sit as
a 'Tax Equalization Board at,
which the public may appear
to offer any objections they may
have to their particular assess-

on July 3, 1776: "Yesterday

was debated in America; and a greater perhaps
never was, nor will be, decided among men. A
resolution was passed without one dissenting
colony, that. these United Colonies are, and of
a right ought to be, free and independent States."
And then they marched to war. Thirteen pit-
iful little colonies armed with a pipe dream.
Thirteen stars on a field of blue against the
mighty Union Jack. But they had their dream
of freedom and independence. They had a cause
to further. They had a grievance with King
George. When it was over they had the embryo
of' a nation.
It was a difficult fight and it took time, but
from this noble experiment came a new giant.
It isn't over yet. It will take all of us working
together. The founders of the nation were men
unaccustomed to cooperation. Their interests
and occupations were as dissimilar as some of
the differences that separate us today. But
they managed to unite through the qualities and'
goals they held in common. There was honor-
able compromise, and debate with a minimum of
emotion. We must equal their courage if we
are to continue to enjoy the blessings gained
through their sacrifice.

Too Late To Classify
by Russell Kay
In a conference with Florida
nator Ed Gurney recently, Dr.I
berte Diaz-Masvidal, former
iban attorney and economist,
Dw president of a leading Gua-
mala bank and majority stock-
Ider in the Republic National
nk in Miami. pointed out that
merican hand-outs and road
ilding is not the answer to La-
i American problems.
He advocates a program that
ll really reach the people,
eate new jobs and better-pay
ales for wprkers. In short help,
em help themselves.
He advocates a cutback in di-
ct American monetary:aid and
e establishment of a "Small'
business Administration" to help
prove terms of trade and put
ore money in the economy
abling families to eventually
ovide for themselves. To; over-
me real social evils depends
on a man being able to pro.
rly provide for his effort, not,
receiving a dole from the gov-.
Masvidal suggests that an in,-
rnational agency could. be cre-
ed, similar to the U.S. "Small:
isiness Administration" finan-
d partly by the government us-
g some of the money it'now
kes for "our import duties" for
e sole purpose of aiding small
ivately-owned businesses in
"If the United States would
ovide better trade relations,"
asvidal said, "and consider the
eds of the economy of the in-
vidual nations .through special
bi-lateral trade agreements,
any of the deplorable situa-
ons of poverty could be elim-
ated. "Such action he thinks
would provide the proper struc-
re to put the poorer Latin.
merican nations on the road
solving their political, econ-
alic and educational problems.
Masvidal was one of Cuba's
ost prominent attorneys' and
onomists prior to leaving that
auntry in 1960. He was senior
nsultant of the Inter-American
development Bank. He spent a
ar in the U.S. before purchas-
ing the Banco de Comerclo y
Industria de Guatemala, where
he now, resides. In five years
and on credit he tripled thd' as-
sets of the institution. Twenty
percent of the bank's stock is
owned by the U.S. Bank of Cali-
forniai thehfirst time a major U.S.
bank has taken a minority inter-
est in a Central American Bank.
He also heads a consumer's .fi-
nance company in Guatemala
that is partially owned by.the
National Bank of Boston.
Masvidal is vitally interested
in Miami' which he believes will
eventually be the center of com-
munication for all Latin-Ameri-
ca. He expects that Castro will
eventually be overthrown, -,not
; from without, but from within, as'
Masvidal's Republic National
Bank in Miami has adopted a
theory of helping exiled Cubans
find a new life in' the commun-
ity. He' plans to physically re-
build the bank shortly into a
high rise structure on the corner
of LeJeune Road and Flagler
Street, its present. location. The
'bank is the fastest growing in
Miami with 143 percent increase
in deposits during the past year.:
SMsvidai's close association
with Latin-American bankers and
business executives has made his
bank a Litin-American center in
Miami and he looks forward to
the day when his native Cuba
will again be numbered among.

Court Ruling Saves i
State Back Taxes I
Tallahassee Comptroller Fred
0. (Bub) Dickinson, Jr. today re-
ported that about $20 million in
back taxes will be saved for' the
state due to a recent U. S. District
Dickinson said a ruling by U. S.
Judge G. Harrold Carswell this
week will in effect do away with
tax refunds to banl s on documen-
tary and intangible taxes.
"According to the ruling, 'refunds
on the taxes will be made only
when the banks have assumed the
costs of the, tax themselves. This
in not the case in most bank trans-
actions involving documentary and
intangible taxes, "Dickinson said.
The. question about the refunds
'came up as a result, of a U. S.
Supreme Cour t ruling of a case in-
'< volving the First -National Bank of
Homestead, and the Okaloosa Na-
tional Bank, Niceville, vs Comp-
troller Dickinson and the Florida
The court held that 'national
banks were exempt from paying
state taxes and were due a re-,
fund for taxes paid over the past
three years. J
Refunds on sales taxes are be-
ing made to banks by the Revenue
Commission because the costs are
assumed by the banks. The Comp-"
troller,, however, asked, for a re-
hearing on refunds involving doc-
umentary and intangible taxes.
"So far, this office has. received
requests from more than 30 banks
for refunds totaling more than a
half million dollars. If we received
requests from all banks it would
Cost the state about $20, million,"
"Also, since the ruling was made
e .Florida has been losing about $750,
t '000 each month because of the cut-
d down in documentary stamp sales
alone," he added,
The Comptroller said the ruling
h gives the state some leeway in the
3. taxing problem by making it incum-
t bent o nthe .,banks to prove that
it they assumed the cost .of the tax,
t before they are due a refund..
"Every request for a refund will
e be thoroughly investigated before
is any refund is made," Dickinson
One' day last week Max Lerner was Writing in his column about
some "Delicious Items" the Warren Court had come upl with in its
lime of judgment. ,
Lerner had listed as "Delicious Item Two" an item. concerning
Adam Clayton Powell holding a press conference at his Bimini ,
redoubt, in which Powell stated that he was'struck almost silent by
the majesty of the decision that -Congress acted wrongly in the man-
ner in which they expelled him. Powell was quoted by Lerner as
saying he was "overwhelmingly grateful with humility." Lerner
commented, "A court that can produce humility in Adam Powell
can work other miracles as well."

Evidently the old practice of kids saying "Sir" along with their
"no" and "yes" has reverted to the point where it is only practiced
by Southern kids anymore.
It used to be, that kids were taught to say "sir" to those older
than they were, and the practice remained with them to adult life-
where they continued to give forth a respectful "sir" or "ma'am"
to any and everyone they spoke to. It may be old hat, but it still
sounds mighty nice to us, sir!
But have you noticed the kids on TV recently? Hardly a one'
of them will say "sir" or "nia'am", even to a grown person. It
doesn't sound right to me.
S: ake for instance the Bill Cosby show one night last week.
Cosby had kids on his show who had made movies which were shoWn
on the show. Some of the kids were of above average intelligence.
You could tell by the way they talked and the movies they made.
But not a one .. not the first one said "sir". It was "uh-huh",
"huh-uh", "nope", "yep", "yes" and "no" with not a single "sir".
I think the kids are missing something by not being taught the
respectful thing to, do .. say "sir" and "ma'am" it adds so
much to the appearance one makes.
James Kilpatrick, one of the syndicated columnists we, read at
every opportunity, had a column last week dedicated to applauding
the merits of the black eyed pea. Kilpatrick said the' lowly black
eye can trace its lineage all the way back to Cleopatra and farther.
Everyone, according to Kilpatrick, loved the black eyed pea.
Columnists have lauded the black eyed pea, grits, corn on the
cob even fresh tomatoes about this time of year, which surely
are hard to beat for something good to eat. Recently "He-Coon"
Bob Sikes went to extreme length to offer a hallelujahbfon the col-
lard green. ,
But what about corn bread? Have you ever seen anyone prais-
ing the succulent taste of good corn bread?
Now, 'there is a dish worthy of praise. There jdkt isn't any-
thing better with black eyed peas, or fresh June tomatoes, or col-
lard greens, or turnip greens or just about anything ... than
a big slab. of corn bread dripping with good butter. Corn bread
MAKES these other things taste good. Corn bread is also good
with strawberries and cream, beans, breakfast, chicken, steak,,
Jell-6, butter beans, vegetables, eeic. The list is endless.
The best part about corn bread is that, at the end of the day,
should you by chance have a piece of corn bread left on the back
of the stove; you don't have to throw it away for fear of it getting.
hard overnight or going stale. Just take that little old piece of
corn bread and crumble it up in a glass of milk and once again ...
it is better than ever before.

This is no accident
But you're our witness, anyway-to a plece-fii dem-
onstration of how quickly and easily Maverick can
be taken apart and put together. We designed
Maverick that way for a good reason. When you're
paying by the hour for service or repairs, speed is
important. And at times like this, nothing -can beat a
.. simple machine.
Most new carsare moreand morecomplicated.And moreex-
pensive-to care for. Maverick's so simple to service, you can
do ityodiself-if you really mean it about being independent.
You won't feel like an orphan either. Our Owner's Manual
shows you how to handle all the routine service. You can
tune and time your engine, change plugs and points, adjust
the idle,.the headlamps, the handbrakes, do nearly 40 dif-
ferent service operations.
FORD MRIK $1
And If yoq crease a fender or crack a grille, you can
almost smile. Maverick's front fenders bolt on and grilles
are replaceable in minutes. And where time means money,
fast means savings.
Stop in once- every :36,000: miles for a lube job. Oil
changes are 6,000 miles-apart. (The leading import sug-
gests oil changes twice as often and lube jobs every 6,000
While still being simple, Maverick is big enough to take
the Whole family-without streaming luggage from the roof.
It's small enough tod park easily, andgo light on gas. A 105-
hp Six gives -you real' posing power. (You get 52 more
horsepower than the leading import' offers.) And the wider
stance gives you a smoother ride, better handling and
It's no accident that Maverick is the hottest selling new
car to come along in five years. We designed it that way.
