Flap Your Wings
Port St. Joe schools will push 111 fledgling adults out
of the nest the first part of next week and they will begin
to fly, in earnest, on their, own. Eighty nine of these
young men and women will come from Port St. Joe High
School and 22 from Washington High.
For 12 years now, trained people have been, at work
moulding, shaping, enticing, challenging, instilling and
encouraging these young adults to begin thinking of them-
selves as. adults. There was also an intense program of
providing knowledge that can be used as tools to make
this new status of adult-hood easier.
The question now remains to be seen "how well can
they fly on their own?"
It happens this way every year, and probably every
teacher who has ever walked in a classroom is constantly
amazed that many of his or her students "make it".
The young ladies and men are eager for it all to be
over, to be free of the daily grind of school. It's been
long time ago, but we remember the feeling. The prc
lem is that it isn't over. it's just beginning. That's w
we compare graduation to a bird being pushed out of
It's almost trite now to gay "you are the leaders
tomorrow", when it shouldn't be trite at all. That's t
most scary statement anyone ever made because it is
true. It's also true that the job is getting bigger a
requires more responsibility than ever before. May
that's why so many youth are copping out with drug
wild actions, rebellion, etc. On the other hand, the e
citement of the challenge of- this day and time seems
be molding better informed, more determined and mo
responsible young adults than ever before.

The name of Peter Fonda, along with that of his
actress sister, Jane, makes us glad they aren't our chil-
dren. They have recently appeared in the news of "anti-
vietnam" demonstrations and other things.not quite so
civilized. While we support the right of Fonda, or any
other public figure, .to dissent from government policy-
as we reserve our own right to disagree with the govern--
nient on' many issues-we are somewhat confused 'as to
what moral,, ethical, or practical motives should impel
young Fonda to adopt his "anti-war" stance.
First, it should be recognized that the surveys show
that Fonda makes his money (and it's quite a bundle)
because of his motion picture appeal to many thousands
of the "under 25" age bracket of our population who flock
to see his films.
But what sort of film fare does Fonda present to his
youthful audiences? In a recent review written for "Life"
magazine, a scene was described near the end of a "bike
movie" which Fonda specializes in. "The Angels, led by
Peter Fonda, are about to bury one of their number. They
have already torn up the chapel, beaten and gagged the
preacher and held a wake during which the dead man's
girl was raped on the altar and the corpse itself, propped

Stand that thrift was a'virtue and
I memorized the admonition of
Benjamin Franklin: "A 'penny

Smy parents explained that 'such
things cost money and if I want-

they drilled into me.: a, I
shouldn't consider the purchase
of'such things unless I was able
to pay in full.
SI eventually got my bicycle

other things but I earned them
by working for them. I mowed
lawns, dida variety of odd jobs,
carried paper routes, sold pa-

bbrrassed by my honest work,
in fact they were proud of me
andi probably got as much plea-

I learned the value of a dol-

I have to give old Senator Bill Fulbright'of Arkansas
credit.. He will exhaust every effort to get his own way.k
Senator Fulbright has been turning heaven and earth to
make President-Nixon see that he is wrong for letting a
war continue which Senator Fulbright's body authorized
in -the first place. Fulbright has done everything but
burn down the Capitol to make President Nixon "see the-
That wily old fox has done it now., He has pulled the
critical move. Now he is agreeing that Nixon was right
in ordering the search and destroy mission in Cambodia.
The President is bound to see the error of his ways when
he sees Fulbright agreeing with him.
Speaking of errors, Bill Altstaetter thought Chauncey
Costin's post office had committed a giant one the other
day. 'Bill had ordered a special pair of gloves and when
they came in the mail he opened them up expectantly,..
but, lo and behold,. there was only one glove in the pack- ',
age. Bill, naturally, started to work Ghauncey over for'
the inefficiency of his organization.
Chauncey came right back at him. and chided him
for "ordering just -one glove and blaming the Post Office $
because two didn't come". The glove that did come wasn't
even for the right, hand.
Ohauncey does that to us to. When we send a paper
that fails to get, delivered he lets us have ito for not hav-
ing the proper address on it.. If thepost office was any-
where near efficient, they would realign the address to
suit our mailing.
We read in the papers where the "tippy-toe" ses-
sion' of the Legislature may end by the last of this week
-a full week early. The session has been a' lesson in pure
politics. All of the controversial subjects have been dis-
cussed at length, amended,' discussed some more, then
shoved back safely in committee where they will remain
when the old clock on the'wall says "go home".
Then the members of that august body can get down
to the business they got out of bed to do this year on Jan-
uary 1 run for office. Nobody will be mad due to bad
bills being passed. Taxes weren't raised appreciably. Ev-
erything is lovely. We will even be back to one effective
Legislative session every two years with the equivalent
of football "spring practice" every other year.

NOTE: This is written from Harrisonburg, Va. (Rockingham County,
ithe Turkey Capital of Va. Millions of clicks, too Gobble,
gobble, Cackle, cackle! Just about in the middle of the fa-
mous and scenic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia!
We hardly know were to start since this insignificant column
has been silent for many months. Might mention the reason for
making print again could be inspired by a slight touch of old
fashioned homesickness?? Yes, some longing for P. S. J., the
white, sandy beaches, the salty, restless waters, now warm and
inviting the fine, lazy sort of fishing (not found here). We
could go on and on with other fond thoughts of this little city
sitting at the edge of beautiful St. Joseph's Bay. Maybe we fail
to really appreciate it until we get away?? So much for that!
Time to get down to business.
First, a salute and hello to the loyal, smiling, friendly per-
sonnel at BOYLES, "The Store With More". Reports from you
have been most encouraging and comforting. Just keep that "ole
Selling Ball" rolling Next,' a warm Hello to our good friends
of 30 years, and last, a big Welcome to the newer residents who
probably never heard of us or "The Tattler". We're living in a
travel trailer at present (both interesting and exciting; suggest
you try it sometime in your. life!) We're eating two meals a
day right at home. In this process we've done quite a bit of
looking around and shopping. We've learned quite a few things.
Shopping can be pleasant, or quite unpleasant .. it depends a
great deal on if, and when you can get waited on. Most important
- is the person who waits on you. Some are haughty and indiffer-
ent. Some wear a blank face .. are methodical and machine-
like. A regrettable few are pleasant, friendly, efficient and busi-
ness-like. They spread sunshine and make shopping worthwhile.
They are part of the salt of the good Earth! May you always find
the latter at BOYLES, your home-town, home-owned, home-operated
store. We try to see you as a guest, an important individual as
well as a customer, a probable friend not just another num-
ber. In some of the stores we've visited, Ive felt like just another
number something like zero, zero, zero. We felt it would,
be just as well the management and assistants "go fishing".
PP.S.-Why not give BOYLES a test today? See for yourself
the new arrivals (daily). See merchandise of quality priced to fit
your budget! See the kind of reception and service you recieve.
Please let the management know when not satisfactory. Thank

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT YOUR PRESCRIPTION:
Unlike art old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrlp-
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-lndffec-
tive but It may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-
tions could also affect the prescription. Chemical changes
can 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... or simply imitating you
...he might swallowthe contents.The results may betmagic.
Never depend upon a prescription lasting forever. Let your
doctor re-prescribe for your present condition...aftgr all
he is the expert And once you have regained your health,
alwaysdestroy the remainder of your prescription.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices
consistent with quality and thie personal attention you
can always depend upon, bring your prescriptions to

Vernell. Armstrong of Wewa-

night, claiming the County had-
n't lived up to its agreement to
provide certain benefits to him
for a drain ditch dug across his,
Armstrong said.the ditch was
to be dug' so he could construct
a fish pond on his property, but
these specifications were not met.
He said C. E. Daniell, Mosquito
Control Supervisor had promised
. to build him a boat launching
site on :the ditch which runs in-
to a slough. Daniell hotly denied
he made such a promise.
Armstrong asked that a bridge
be put across the ditch which
cuts through his property so that
he may:go from one side to the
other without having ,to get out
'on the'highway. The Board went'
yesterday to look at the site and,%
come to a decision.

ed to the Board for concrete pipe
driveways throughout the coun-

the night's requests 'totaled more

Wesley R. Ramsey, speaking as

adopt a .pblicy of charging the

Engineer Max W. Kilbourn
said the County might adopt a
policy of charging for requests
for pipe in existing ditches and
giving pipe when a ditch is dug.
