Action Delays Ruling of
Judge On School Issue
A, class action was filed in U.
S. District Court this week by
several Negro parents in behalf
of their children opposing the
closing of Washington Elemen-
tary School by the Gulf County
The action was tossed into the
already confused situation here
in Gulf County, causing District
Judge D fd Middlebrooks to de-
lay for a few more days, his fi-
nal decision for Gulf's plans for
integration. The Judge,was ex-
pected to rule yesterday on the
latest move by the School Board.
Board officials expected a favor-
able ruling because of the 100%
integration that would result
from closing the school. The
Board is stressing the fact of
economy that will result from
closing the school which they
estimate will amount to nearly,
$50,000 per year,
The filed action alleges that
the only reason for closing the
Washington school is due to dis-'"
criminatory practices by the'
School Board- in not allowing
children to go to Washington Ele-
mentary which is described in"
the legal action as a "modern
Board attorney Cecil G. Cos-
tin 'said he expects a favorable
ruling from Judge Middlebrooks
for several reasons. One of the
factors Costin is counting on is
approval by HEW in Washington,
D. C. back in January of 1968 for
closing the school and putting
the pupils in formerly all white
schools. Costin said the closing
was even recommended by HEW.
Costin said that the legal ac-
tion will delay Judge Middle-
brooks final order for a few days
but that he expects a decision
late this week or early next week
in view of the proximity of the
first day of school.
New Route to School
Gulf County Road Department personnel were
hard at work last week completing a foot bridge
across the canal between 17th and 18th Streets
on Palm Boulevard. The bridge, made of a pre-.
stressed concrete beam will have guard rails on
either side and is being put in place to give school
children another walking route to the Port St. Joe
elementary and high schools. The bridge was put
in at the request of the City Commission.

Can't Make Everyone Happy
If the Gulf County School Board can get away with
it, they did perhaps the best thing they could do for both
the children and the adults of Gulf County as a whole by
closing Washington Elementary School last Monday.
White many look on the closing in the light of its
racial and integration impact, we do not. The racial and'
Integration part of the whole situation doesn't bother us
a bit We just tian't get excited about having to mix races
in our school system. We can see(no harm, if the parents
keep their cool about the whole matter. There is a modi-
cum'of good for the parents that can come out of this
situation in additionto the provision of the same quality
education to all children in the. area.
'Gulf County's school people have been straining at
your pocketbooks for years keeping the Washington school
open, On a per pupil basis it was by far the most, ex-
pensive operation in the county, regardless of the quality
of education that was endowed on its pupils. /
Education, like everything else, is getting more and
more expensive every day. We can't see how Gulf Coun-
ty eould continue to justify operation of three elementary
Schools in the Port St. Joe area. The pupils just aren't
there. We grant you ,there is. almost too many pupils for
two schools at the present time, but not near enough for
three. .: / '
But the 'expense of the prograri isn't the thing, is it?
It's the emotional upset that bothers us. One has to com-
misprate ivith the School Board in this situation. Regard-
less of: what they do someone is going to be mighty un-
happy. But then, hasn't this been the trouble all along?
We have all been preoccupied with where and with whom
our children went to school rather than whether or not
they would get an adequate education after they got there.
Like we said before, someone is going to be made un-
happy regardless of wlat steps the Board takes. While
we are getting our dander up, we need to pause, too, and
consider that the School Board is not now making every
move it wants to. There is a force behind the Board that
is dictating most of their moves that tend, to displease us.
We do not believe that the Board is going to take any
move, no matter how popular or unpopular, that will do
anything but better the educational opportunity of all our
children, black and white. If they made a move that
pleased us at the- expense of some group of children get-
ting the best education we can offer them, we would still
vote against them. at election day. If their moves dis-
pleased us but offered educational opportunities, we would
vote for them.
Whether the blacks and whites like ,t or not, it is
the law of; the land that they go to. school together in'
schools which are not noticeably "black" or "white",
schools. The thinking of course,, is, that with such an even
mixture, there wigl be no temptation to let"one school's
quality slide to the credit of another, school.
Granted, there is emotion involved. We cannot sit
back and be objective about this whole thing and consider
only the educational possibilities. But for the sake of our
school and most of all for the sake ,of our children, we've
got to try.

Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay,
As'I grow older and look back.
on my life experience I find that
I do not scare as easily as I did
when I was younger.
I have listened to dire predic-
tions of so-called authorities,
scientists, and official advisors
to say nothing of religious fana-
tics, and found that most of
them were talking nonsense.
I have lived through countless
warnings from religious fanatics
who have predicted the "end of
the world".. I have survived, nu-
merous warnings that both 'the
east and west coasts of the Uni-
ted States would sink into' the
seas when earthquakes would ad-
just our geographical situation.
I have awaited the, arising of
the so-called lost continents of
Mu and Atlantis in the Pacific
and Atlantic and' the melting of
the ice. caps at the North Pole
and South Pole which would de-
velop flooding of- most of our
coasts. I have awaited a dozen
"Second Comings" and lived
throu g h countless warnings
which never materalized.
I vividly recall the fear and
panic that gripped this country
when the atomic bomb was
heralded as soon to destroy the
world. I watched friends ; and
neighbors dig gigantic holes, in
their back yards, create under-
ground shelters, stocked with

have engaged an attorney to op-
pose closing of the school".
The Superintendent said it ap-

school to remain closed with all
Negro. elementary students sent
to Port St. Joe and Highland
View elementary schools since
the move brings about more in.
tegration of students than the
judge had achieved in his plan
of Friday, August 7.
Craig said closing of the school
would save the School Board ap-
proximately $50,000 per year.
Craig said that residents of
Mexico Beach had asked that
their children be sent to Bay
County schools due to Middle-
brooks order. The Superinten-
dent said he had hopes the move
would stop with Gulf'snew plan.
"We need these students", Craig
said. "Their coming to Port St.
Joe gives us an additional $60,000
to $65,000 a year in state money
and expenses would not drop ac.
cordingly if they were not com-
ihg to the local schools."
The speaker said that prelim-
inary studies show that the
white to black ratio ip Port St.
Joe schools for the coming year
will be approximately 569 whites
to 251 blacks in Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary; 200 to '60 in Highland
View; 75 to 45 in kindergarten
classes to be held at the old ele-
mentary site and 750 to 320 in

A good thought.
There were a hundred things we had planned to accomplish
this summer while the boys were out of school and could offer a
little help.- School starts again on Monday of next week and hardly
a one of the tasks got done. There was always some surfing, skin-
diving, somewhere to go which kept getting in the- way.
Maybe next year.

Florida elected its first Republican to the Governor's mansion
four years ago. The other day Clerk of the Court George Y. Core
brought the ballot to the office to get it printed. What with three4
years of being in the driver's seat, the Republicans have three can-
didates on the ballot for Governor. The Democrats have four. It
was less than a decade when there were no more than an occasional
one Republican candidate on the ballot.
The run-away barge was still stuck hard and fast next to High-
way 98 in Port St. Joe when this was written. Despite the efforts
of a big tug boat to tow it back to its berth, there it sits gathering
graffiti, among other things.
Someone has done a little "politicing" on the side of the
barge by painting the names of "Earl and George"; referring, of
course, to Earl Faircloth and George Tapper. No "Seniors '71" yet.
Thursday morning of last week on the high tide, a big tug
came in as close as it could get in the flats which extend into St.
Joseph Bay at 'this location and tied onto the barge with a tope
as big as my arm. The tug dug in its heels and huffed and puffed
and broke the rope. It took Mother Nature a gentle breeze to put
the barge there, but the mighty tug couldn't budge it.
