What Makes Us Great!
We think there's more to be gained by the United
States' placing a man on the moon than merely being the
first nation to do so. We have proved to the world that,
starting from a standing start, giving the opposition a
lead, out system can catch and surpass anything another
system can do ... ,and do it better.
What J1 this ingredient that makes our country so
great and our system, with all of its so-called imperfec-,
tions, the best for the benefit to mankind? Is it our
:reputation fpr working? Even though we have a corps
of supposedly thinking people in our nation today who
, regard work as a dirty word, our nation still has the repu-
tation of being a nation of working people some of
the workingest people in the world.
Is it'our brains? We have an abundance of this com-
modity too. In spite of constant attempts to renovate
our school system on the lines of European education, we
think our system does produce some of the best brains in
the world. A look at the discoveries which have benefit-
ted mankind during the past 100 years will show that the
United States is far and above the most prolific producer
of beneficial tools, medicines, scientific methods, and aids
to mankind of any other nation in the world.
Really, we believe it is a combination of these in-.
gredients. Our system is flexible. We tend to change all
the.time. And, our system being like it is, we are prone
What's Behind Stud
The reason that college students are doing so much
demonstrating is that there is no one in class to teach
them any more and the students have nothing else to do.
Many professors are either writing a book, guest
lecturing at another university, or taking a year off to,
write a report for the White House. Therefore, the pro-
fessor has turned over his course to a graduate assistant
who is working on his Ph. D. So he has, in turn,
turned the class over to one of the brighter students
who is never there because he works on the college news-
paper, or is a member of the Student Senate.
When the students arrive at class there is no one at
the front of the room, so usually a socialist student
takes over the class and tells the students that it's about
time they revolted against the system. The students pour
out on the campus, heading for the administration build-
ing to protest to the chancellor of the university, who
unfortunately is away trying to raise money for a new
business administration .building. The vice-chancellor,
of course, is at the state capitol, testifying on new educa-
tion bills, and the dean of men is at a convention in Phoe-
nix. The dean of women is addressing a garden club in
the next state, and the only one left in the administration
building is the chief of the campus police who isn't quite
sure what the students are yelling about.
to thoroughly examine and consider all aspects of any
anticipated change before it is made. We are quick to
condemn any system which displeases us. Out of this has
come the best governmental system in the world.
We believe it is our bent to hard work that has made
us great also. What makes us work? And, we do work,
in spite of the common complaint today that people are
looking for a hand-out rather than an opportunity to earn.
We agree people are looking for a hand-out, but as long
,,as this element remains unpopular and is looked down
upon by the backbone of our nation, we have nothing to
worry about. Also, our system of competition has made
us accustomed to meeting competition. We strive ,and
compete every day in every way to get ahead, to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to make something of ourselves.
This habit of competition has stood us in good stead in
the competition we face throughout the world; especially
America, being what it is, cannot help but be first in
every endeavor. We are not afraid to take the best of
what we experience; to discard something that is not serv-
ing its purpose anymore. We are pliable and can make
drastic changes without upsetting our entire equilibrium.
As long as we have these traits we will continue to be
first to grasp opportunity and run with it whe-
ther it's going to the Moon or making a more comfortable
pair of shoes.
lent Demonstrati ons!
He arrests the ringleaders of the group-that's those'
who are standing in front-and that plays right into the
students' hands because now, with the arrest, they have
something to demonstrate about.
In the meantime, the chancellor flies home to see if he
can settle the matter. The students present him with'
a petition demanding the release of the arrested demoni-
strators. The chancellor is about to do this when the
board of regents holds an emergency meeting and votes
to back up the chancellor who is 'meting out punishment
to the ringleaders.' The faculty, which is made up of
visiting professors from other schools, votes to support
the students and the chancellor finds himself 'in an im-
possible situation. He, therefore, resigns and accepts'
a grant from a foundation to make a study of higher edu-
By this time, the demonstration starts petering out
and the students begin wandering back to class hoping-
that there will be somebody there to teach them some-
thing. But even that socialist student who started the
demonstration is not there. He's been booked on a lec-
ture tour to talk about free speech at other universities.
So everyone decides to go to Washington and! picket the
White House over its policy on Viet Nam.

be relied on to make a reasonable decision in a crisis and has no
business trying to guide this country and its millions of people.

We were reading the other day where some people have begun
the job of salvaging the reportedly valuable cargo of the Lusitania,
sunk off England during the beginning of the First World War.
When these salvage people fully realize that the United States
left $1 million worth of equipment on the Moon, somebody will come
up with a-plan to salvage it, too.
The Moon shot, landing and walk were something weren't they?
I stayed right there by that TV until the men did their walk on the
Moon. I saw it I saw the landscape as the television camera
was panned, but it was .still hard to believe that man had ac-
.tually stepped on another planet.
It was probably just as hard for the Spaniards to believe that
old Chris Columbus had discovered another world, too. In years to
come this feat will be just as historic and we all witnessed it.
Like as not the people of Spain badgered King Ferdinand and
Queen Isabella with the questions, "what are you going to do with
that God-forsaken land? There's nothing there but wild forest and
wild red men. Of what possible use can it be? How could we econ-;
omically transport any products that the wild land may possibly
produce back .to Spain?"
These same questions are now being asked concerning our
space program. As for me, I have no doubts whatever that the t
space program will prove beneficial and profitable to man-
Frankly, I have never been able to' see what made Joe Namath
so great. His looks are deceiving. When he plays football, he looks
just like any other quarterback trying to pass' the ball and get
away from possible tacklers. The only markedly difference was
the hair, but that wouldn't make the difference in playing ability.
So, we thought, it must be the rest of the Jets team are pretty
fair football players and make Joe look good.
I have now changed my mind. I think Joe Namath is a great
football'player because of his faking ability. His opponents don't
know what he is going to do next. His ability to sucker somebody
into the position Namath desires is possibly unparalleled.
.Joe has shown his hand in his recent dealings with his "Bache-
lor's Three" bistro and the American football league moguls. The
American Football League commission was the defensive line, run-

sportsmen will have additional
doves added to their bag during
the 1969-70 hunting season. Ac-
cording to the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission the dai-
ly limit for doves has been in-
creased from 12 to 18 per day.
Hunters will again have a three
phase dove season as follows:
First phase, October 4 through
November 2; second phase, No-

30; third phase, December 13
through January 6.
Hunting will be allowed from
12 noon until sunset of each
According to Dr. O0. E. Frye,

crease in bag limit is actually
one step in a continuing wildlife
research program, and during
the next twp years wildlife biol-
ogists will study results of the
increased limit to determine
what, if any, effect the extra
har"'est might have on the dove
Previous research has 'indicat-
ed a normal 70 to 80 percent an-
nual mortality in doves whether
they are hunted or not. The in-
creased bag should provide addi-
tional information without any
damage to the overall dove pop-

said, "is a two year study. The

end of the study, the bag limit
could possibl.k remain at 18 dqves

"Marrying Month" '
Month... Notify S
"The summer months have al-
ways been known as the 'marrying
months,' Jerry L. Myers, Acting
Manager of the Panama City Social
Security office, stated.
Although there are many activi-
ties honoring the bride and groom,
there are also many business mat-
ters that must be taken care of.
Myers stated that the bride should
have her social security card chang
ed as soon as possible. There is a
short form you need to complete.
When this is done, you will re-
ceive a new card showing the same
number but with your new name.
