Time for Work Not Politics
The Florida Legislature got under way last Tuesday
with the fur flying right from the beginning. Senate Pres-
ident John Mathews of Jacksonville took his now custom-
ary swipe at Governor Claude Kirk and House Speaker
Fred Schultz, who,. along with Mathews, is trying for big-
ger things in the political world, echoed the jibes at the
Chief Executive. After the opening salvo was fired,
School Superintendent Floyd Christian,.who had been (also
now customarily) stung by the Governor, said "he offered
* nothing nlew, in his address, opening the session".
But, with all of the bitter barbs flying, the Governor
himself was unusually calm and collected; stuck to his
subject of urging a "go ahead",session and "no new taxes".
The Governor didn't waste the day, however, as he point-
edly addressed Mathews, Schultz and Sen. Reuben Askew
when he stated, "there will be plenty of time for you-
and me-to politic after this session is over".
Several leaders in the Senate were even going along
,with the politicking mood by spying "we're going to keep
our eye on the Executive Branch to see that they don't
get out of hand with all of the power they have".
The thing that bothers us is that the ones who gave
the Executive Branch such awesome power, Mathews,
SchulPz, Askew; et al., evidently are the ones who bear,
watching. We hope they pay more attention to their
work during this session and don't compound such past
errors as they claim this one to be.
With the beginning of the session, the news media'
was about equally divided with stories saying the Gover,
nor made his best opening address ever and with several
important matters that are facing the law makers -
while all in the same breath'describing the session as sort
Things such as giving the vote to 18-year-olds (and
an accompanying amendment to make 18 the legal age)
a possible change in the abortion law, and pollution, face
the session. All of these questions and the many more,
on tap are, anything but "ho-hum". .
With such moments decisions to make, we join the
Governor in admonishing the Legislators to hold off on
their politicking until after the job at hand is .ove'r. Their
full attentions needed in caring for business the people
have hired them to care for.
Hope They Can Sleep
Senator Fulbright of Arkansas, and his cohorts have
been having a field day for the past few years, poking
accusations at the "hawks" in the Vietnam war question.
The "hawks" have taken the stand that the U. S. ought
* to fight the war to win it. They have advocated that the
U. S. presence was necessary to defend Vietnam, which
is an important source of tin and rubber to-our nation as
well as a port in the Far East, and a nation of people
who are important as individuals. The "hawks" have
1. lsb argued Mat we are standing by our word to offer
-But the Arkansas Senator and Terry Kennedy (who
was described by one editor last week as 'the greatest
swimmer in the world') have pounded the kettle that we
a, ae not needed in Vietnam; that we are serving no im-
p portant purpose there. They claimed that the fighting
would die out if only we would come home.
These people have had a lot of help in this line from
the "red" foreign and domestic press. The whole shooting
match of dissenters overlook the fact that it took two to
fight at the start, and it still takes two.,
We call to your attention the claim by Senator Ful-
bright that the fighting would quit if we were to pull out.
We are pulling out. Has the fighting dwindled? Have
the North Vietnamese pulled back? '
Quite the contrary. ,
We feel that North Vietnam's invasion of Laos and
threat of Cambodia and Thialand is directly linked to our
avowed position of pulling out :of Vietnam. When the
watchdog is put behind a high wire fence, the cats get
brave and start after that big hunk qf meat they were
after all along. ,
We hope Mr. Futbright and Mr. Iennedy can sleep
at night when the North Vietnamese get through with
their dirty work. .,
Shallow Reasoning ...
The Senate of the United States used the mdst shal- 11 Southern states for 'his next choice. We are heart-
low of reasoning to reject the nomination of Judge Har- ened by his affirmation, however, that he will still use
rold Carswell to the Supreme Court. It bothers us that the same criteria of a conservative constitutionalist for
our laws are being made by men whose majority is made his next choice. -
up of people who will listen to and consider such pitiful
arguments for denying a man of Carswell's stature of a
seat on the court. It would seem to us that if Carswell -
isn't fit to sit on the highest court of the land, neither is he
fit to continue as a judge of the second highest.
With the rejection of Carswell, we wait with bated
breath the fate of a move to impeach Justice William
Douglas who has written that it is permissible to foment
violent revolution in this nation if a group deems it nec-
As a matter of fact, with the reasoning behind the
"B rejection of Carswell, we can't for a minute see how Doug-
s" las, former Chief Justice Warren and others of their na--
2o ture were ever confirmed to the Court in the beginning.
J'm We can only hope that such close scrutiny of a can-
didate is something recent. Surely an American can't
conscientiously draw the conclusion that Douglas makes
a better Justice than would Carswell.
But, it's over. Nixon has said he will go outside the

Too Late To Classify
by RUSSELL KAY
In spite of the fact that we
are now paying the highest rate
in U. S. Postal history for a first
class letter, it appears that we
will soon be paying four cents
additional or a total of 10 cents.
We are also warned that even
this increase may not be enough
to keep our Post Office Depart-
ment operating in the black.
I don't know about you, but I
am on a limited income. I am
taking steps to meet the situa-.
tion. I am sending the following
notifications to niy relatives and
"Dear Folks: You have been
receiving a letter from me at
frequent intervals just to l1t you
know of my affection and ,friend-
ship but at 10 cents a throw it is
beyond my means. So do not look
for my occasional letter from,
now on. If anything happens that
I consider important enough to
advise you I 1ill telephone after

I am sending the following no-
tice to my creditors. "Gentlemen:
This is the last check I will send
through the mails. Don't worry,
I intend to pay you, but I will de-
liver my check in person. It will
be cheaper than use of the mail
at present rates."
For ten years I sent Christmas
Cards to about 1,200 people at
two cents postage, for each card.
I cut the list to about 300 when
the rate advanced to five cents
and cut it again when it reached
six cents. So next year please
don't expect a card from me.
Just know I love you and think
about you and I will certainly not
,expect a card .from you. Save
your dime on postage plus the
cost of the card and we will,all
be better off. And the poor post-
man will not be overburdened.
My Christmas presents this
year will be sent by railway"ex-
press so our over-worked post of-
fice will not be burdened. Local-
ly I will deliver them myself.
In the meantime, I am marking
every piece of junk mail "re-
turn to sender" instead of throw-
ing it in the waste basket. I hope
the Post Office Department. will
return it aid charge them the
full' postage. But even if they
do it would be a lot less than
the 10 cents I am asked to pay
to write a personal letter.
Another thing that gripes me
is the crazy mixed up publicity
I receive from my congressmen
and senators telling me the state
of the nation, how they love me
and what they think they are do-
ing about it. I am paying the
postage for their mailing privi-

Told to "Speed 'It Up"
TALLAHASSEE Slowpoke dri-
vers were told today by the Florida
Highway Patrol that to stay alive
they must remember to move with
the flow of traffic on Florida's busy
streets and highways.
Colonel Reid Clifton, Director of
the Patrol said, "Traffic is on the
increase and the pace quickens as
spring brings the opportunity for
outdoor activity. Slower drivers
should keep traffic conditions in
mind and avoid impeding the nor-
mal flow o6 traffic."
Clifton urged slower drivers to
lieep watch in their rear mirror
and either increase their speed to
that of the normal flow, of traffic
or pull off the raodway when they
see that traffic i beginning to "pile
up" behind thenI.
The Patrol Dire.ctor emphasized
that he is not trying to get anyone
to drive faster than they feel is
safe. .. .
Letter to Editor. .
Daughter Catherine, home from college for the Spring holidays,
came in the shop the other day and said, "Pop, I have an editorial
for you". "You have nearly four years of college English", I said,
"Sit down and write it". "I won't write it", Ishe said, "but just
go by the City Hall and look at the condition of the Florida state
flag and you'll write it yourself".
I hadn't particularly noticed the flag before, but an examine.
tion showed she was right. It's pretty raunchy.

They say one learns something newt every day. It was m&
turn Friday to find out something I surely didn't know. The me-',\
chants met in one of their, twice a month meetings Friday and had
an insurance man present giving us a pitch on purchasing a group
hospital insurance plan for the merchants and their employees under
the auspices of the Merchant's Association.
The policy peddler said, "In this particular plan, I have pro-
vided for $18.00 per day in room payments, which is the rate for
a semi-private room in your hospital". Then he went on to, say,
"You're very lucky here in Port St. Joe. Your hospital makes the
lowest charges of any hospital from Tallahassee all across the
Panhandle to the Alabama line."
This was news to us, and apparently to everyone else present.
We didn't know that. In addition, our hospital is probably one
of the very few which is paying its own way without having tax
money put into its budget to subsidize its operation. That speaks
very well for our hospital, because they don't scrimp on their; ser-
vice, offered, that's for sure.
Jerry Rubin, one of the futiy-headed head hippies' was on one
of the early morning talk shows recently making the claim thatL
"pot" and ISD. "won't hurt you". "Heroin is.bad", he said, "it'll
ruin you, but I use "pot" and "acid" all the time". As if that is
an endorsement that the stuff won't hurt a sane person. Rubin, in
'our opinion, is proof that "pot" and acidi" will, indeed, warp one's
thinking. Just listening to Rubin for a few minutes convinced v
me that he has one of the most twisted minds and line of reasoning
that I have ever heard. But, in truth, I couldn't rightly say if he
was born that way or got that way through the use of marijuana

all he' wants and stay skinny. But back to being a Southerner, inow.
John was at the merchant's meeting Friday, right near me, and I
watched him eat four big pieces of Southern fried chicken and
three cornbread muffins. A good mess of collards and chitlins, and
he will be full-blooded Yankee accent and all.

Replace filters frequently. Clogged filters make unit
work harder and cause higher operating costs.
Keep clear of plants and other obstructions. Any-
thing that interferes with air flow makes unit work
Keep furniture or drapes clear of grill. Anything
that interferes with delivery or return of air will not
allow unit to cool properly.
Use drapes or provide outside shading to shut out
heat from the sun.,
Adequate irfsulatiort will result in Idwer operating

. Unlike an old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrip-
tion to do a thorough job. ..especially the same one for
which it was originally intended. Drugs lose their potency
-over a number of years and some increase in strength
through evaporation. Not only might a drug prove ineffec-
'tiye but it may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-
tions could also affect.the prescription. Chemical changes
'-'in occur within the liquid, capsule or tablet. Then, too,
there is the constant danger of a child reaching for an old
' -prescription. Thinking it's candy... pr simply imitating you,
...he might swallow the contents. The results may be tragic.
Never depend upon a prescription lasting forever. Let your
-doctor re-prescribe for your present condition... after all
he Is the expert! And once you have regained your health,
Salwa. destroy the remainder of your prescription.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always .depend- upon, bring your prescriptions to
