Rish Stops Tax,
On Oyster Shells
Representative William J., ish
of Port St. Joe stopped a recent
attempt to place a tax bn oys-
-ters during -a House Natural Re-
sources Committee: meeting.!
A Bill to levy a severance tax
on phosphate included wording
that would have extended the '
tax to shells, which could have
affected oyster men along Flor-
ida's Gulf coast. Rish amended
the bill to change. the word
"'shell" to "fossil". This quick
Action protects oyster men from,
any kind of severence tax.
and apparently FHA wants to be
certain' the area is behind the'
project and' enough interest is
present to give reasonable assur-
rance of a successful venture".
Freeman urges everyone who
can and who is interested in the'
Country Club project getting un-
derway to be at the Courthouse
this afternoon to give moral sup-'
port to the project and give a
show of support to Shaddick.
The Country Club's loan appli-
cation from FHA is now in Wash-
ington, D. C., awaiting the fi-
nal signature of approval as the
last step toward getting started
with construction. The Country
Club has met every request of
FHA favorably and apparently
this test of local support is the
final of many ordeals the Club
officers have been through to-
get the project off the ground.

time 'to begin m ing plans for

Commissioners to? begin putting

Mayor Frank Pate said the
main thing the Board needs .to
consider is the purchase of some
new garbage collection equip-
ment. "Both of' our packer trucks
are old and we should replace at
least one", he said.
) The ,Mayor went on to suggest
that since there is plenty of time
before the new budget year goes
into effect, the Commission
should make a study of new gar-
bage collection methods, such
as the "garbage train" concept
before making any purchases,
to see if the City can provide
better. collection service at less
cost. The "garbage train" sys-
tem utilizes a small power vehi-
cle, such as a 4-wheel drive vehi-
cle or small truck towing sev-
eral trailers for collection and
mechanical dumping into a cen-
trally located loader packer.
The Board. asked Clerk Brock
.to contact several manufacturers
and get their presentations of
innovations in garbage' collection
for presentation to the Board be-
fore any equipment is purchased.
The County Sanitation Officer,
F. E. Trammell notified the
Board of an instance of waste wa-

ed to try and locate the trouble.

Blame The Cowboys
We can probably blame Lieutenant William Calley's
conviction on cowboy movies. In the cowboy movie,
whidris so popular in the United States, the villian always
geTs the first shot and then the hero does him in with a
100 yard shot from a six-shpoter'
But they tell us it doesn't work this way in Vietnam.
- They still shoot from the 100 yard distance (and some-
times ,more), but the si&-shooter is out and the enemy.
;'doesn't always'iniss on the first shot. -
Another problem in Vietnam, according to those who
have been there, is that the enemy' isn't always decked out
Sin a black hat. More than occasionally, the enemy is dres-
sed in the 'pajamas of the peasant. Many times he is a
woman. Often he is a child.
It's terrible to have to shoot a woman br child. They
tell iu it's worse 'to get shot yourself. We wonder how
many of the Calley jury would refuse to defend their
life against a woman or child, by any means, if their life
One aspect of the case which has not been emphasized
in the trial toany extent is the fact that the village of
Mi Lai had been a stronghold of the Communists for sev-
eral years and raids had been formulated,.from this area'
on surrounding allied bases almost since the war had be-
gun. Every indication pointed to the fact that the inhabi-
tants of Mi Lai were the enemy. For this reason, -we think
Lt. Calley should have been acquitted.
It's almost, barbarism to shoot women and chil-
dren-in the Western world. Women and children are to
be protected and provided for in our society. But in the
Orient it's different. We are fighting a people who don't
think and react as w6 do. The Communists proved less
than two weeks ago that the women and children are to be
considered "enemies" by annihilating a village of 200 wo-
men and children, because they were supporters of the
allied cause, and because they Were supporters, could be
expected to do the Communist troops harm should they
get the opportunity.
Lt. Calley's job was distasteful but necessary for the
protection of the men in his company and others stationed
in the vicinity of Mi Lai. We don't envy him his task.
Calley himself said he didn't relish it, but it Wvas neces-
sary. Few tasks in war time are anything but inhuman
when you get right down to it.
We feel sympathy toward Calley. While he was or-
dered to perform -a necessary task of getting..rid of an.
enemy, he must spend the rest of his life remembering
that this particular enemy was made up of women, chil-
dren and old men., But they were enemy, primed to kill.
Calley did what he took an 'oath to do upon becoming a
soldier and an officer, which is more than we can say about
some of our public servants who are now trying to judge
Lt. Governor Howard Mason of
Panama City paid a visit to the
Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club Tuesday
and gave them a short address.
Mason said that Kiwanis mem-
bership and clubs were growing
in Florida and the state was now
about equal to California which
leads the nation in number of
clubs and membership.
Mason outlined changes being
proposed by Kiwanis International
on a local level and urged the
club to have representatives at the
state and international conventions
during the year.

Finding little or no opposition
to Sunday voting in Europe,
Hartnett questioned ministers up-
on his return home. He was sur-
prised to find that the only op-
position to Sunday voting came
from laymen and not the church.
He talked to ministers of many
faiths and found that most of
them considered voting a duty
to God and Country and, as such,
permissable. As one Baptist min-
ister put it, "If it is immoral to
vote,on Saturday or Sunday, then
it is immoral to vote on Tues-
Other church leaders told him
that it was very difficult to sep-
arate the meaning of God from

has, and one of our most, import-

Many Florida legislators are
concerned over the steady drop
in the' number voting in our pri-
maries and feel that action
should be taken to reverse this
deplorable trend. Public apathy,
such as we have witnessed in
this country during the last"dec-
ade or so, certainly justifies ser-
It is imperative that more peo-
ple go to the polls and express
themselves if we hope to solve
the serious problems that con-
front us today.
In my opinion, a change to
week end voting would be a step
in the right direction. Given an
opportunity to express them-
selves, I feel sure a large per-
centage of the voters-would en-
dorse such a proposal. Week end
voting in Florida should substan-
tially increase the turnout of cit-
izens during primary elections.

After 25 years of operating a Linotype machine you'd
think that I would know better.
Tuesday morning, the first thing I did was stick the
index finger of my left hand in a place on the linotype
where it didn't belong and ... bang! the end got all
mangled up and the nail was mashed off. That was the
first thing I did. The second thing I did was trot next
door to Dr. Joe Hendrix' office, where the ladies were just
settling down to their morning cup of coffee before the
day started and "almost a doctor" Tibbie Whitehead took
a long hard look. after she finished her coffee.
Tibbie gave me a professional diagnosis: "You put
that finger someplace it didn't belong didn't you." I ad-
mitted I did and had the evidence to prove it.
Tibbie is one to please everybody, so she called Jean-
ette Presnell in on the act and said, "You'd better X-ray
it and see if it's broken". Joe had just bought her a new
X-ray machine, so she was eager and willing to try it out.
Tibbie medicated and bandaged and sent me back to work.
Wednesday I went back to have the bandage changed
and I asked Dr. Joe to "perform a miracle. That's my "e",
"t" and "s" finger, and I'm having a heck of a time sett-
ing type without it. Joe was very sympathetic and gave
me sage advice. He said, "Just try to keep from having to
set "Tennessee" while it's getting well."
As Rodney Dangerfield says, "There just ain't no re-
spect any more".
Seventy-year-old Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, who
is in critical condition with a heart ailment at this writ-
ing had this to say recently: "The Lord will help the poor
but not the poor and the lazy. So get in there and wail,
daddy!" "Satchmo" is proof that his motto works.
In our opinion Cliff .Willis, assistant director of the
Department of Natural Resources needs replacing. I
think he hits the bottle to excess, or something. Something
is making liim see things and have dillusions.
Last Thursday, Willis was speaking to the Rotary
Club about the work of 'his department and especially
concerning their work with the Marine Patrol and Marine
Conservation. He got to talking about raising shrimp
both naturally and via the cultivation method recently in-
troduced in Florida. He became so carried away with
his streessing the importance of estuaries and streams
for shrimp breeding that he lapsed into fantasy and began
to talk of the need to protect a fresh water shrimp with
a long important-sounding Latin name that grows up to
two feet long!
Frankly, I doubt him. If any of you have ever seen a
two-foot-long fresh water shrimp, I wish you'd tell me.
I hate to have doubts in the veracity of our public servants
and I have to confess that my confidence in Willis has
been bent,. considerably. Two-foot-long shrimp, indeed!
--- SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR
We came across some words of Abraham Lincoln
the other day, which had been paraphrased by somebody
anid printed upl into.an attractive scroll.
Lincoln earned the reputation of being tolerant, pa-
tient and a humanitarian. In short, Lincoln probably had
the qualities most of us would desire for ourselves if we
weren't too selfish to adopt this creed given by the Civil
"You cannot strengthen the weak by weaken-
ing the strong. You cannot help small men by
tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor
Sby destroying .the rich. You cannot lift the wage

TO THE EDITOR
"You cannot further the brotherhood of man
by inciting class hatreds. You cannot. establish
security dn borrowed money. You cannot build
character and courage by taking away a man's
initiative and independence. You cannot help men
permanently by doing for them what they could
and should do themselves."
Evidently the practice of today isn't unique of our day
and time. We still, in. the twentieth century, insist on

Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
State Reprsentative Robert C.
Hartnett of Dade County recent-
ly pre-filed a bill calling for a
statewide referendum on the is-
sue of weekend voting, Saturday
or Sunday instead of Tuesday, in
He points out that, according
to records of the Secretary of
State's office, the percentage of
voters compared to the number
who actually vote in primary
elections, has been falling off
since 1960 when 58 percent vot-
ed. Only 39 percent cast their
ballots in the 1970 elections.
Elections are held in most Eu-
ropean countries on week ends
.and percentages there are much
higher than in this country. Aus-
tria, 9.7.2 percent; Belgium, 94
percent; Italy, 93 percent; the
Netherlands, '92 'percent and
Luxemberg, 96 percent.
Before preparing his bill, Rep.
'Hartnuitt visited Europe and stu-
died the situation there, talk,
ing with legislative leaders. He
is convinced that one reason for
the high turnout of voters is due
largely to weekend voting.
Only one 'of our fifty states
has week end voting, Lduisiana,
and in a recent primary election
they turned out 80.7 percent of
Hartnett's bill would give the
voters of Florida a chance to' ex-
press themselves on the matter
and he feels confident the senti-
ment in favor of week end vot-
ing would be overwhelming.
"In every case where week end
voting occurs," Hartnett points
out, "the turnout on election day
is large. And after all, the more
citizens who vote, the better off
the country is," be said. His bill
would ask the voter to decide if
they prefer Saturday; Sunday or

The week of April 4 through
10 has been proclaimed "Adult
Education Week" by Governor
The Gulf County Adult Insti-
tute is proud of its role in of-
fering educational opportunities
to adults in this area. Classes for
completing high school are lo-
cated in Port St. Joe High
School, We wahit chka High
School, North Port St. Joe and
the Centennial Building. Classes
in business education and art are
offered in both Wewahitchka
High and Port St. Joe High.
Adult basic education classes
are offered without cost to the
student and are located at the
old Carver School in Wewahitch-
ka, W hjite City Community
House, North Port St. Joe and
Highland View School.
Veterans who have been dis-
charged since 1955 are eligible
for educational benefits under
the 'GI Bill. Many veterans are
taking advantagee of this but
most of them are letting this op-
portunity slip by them. For in-
formation about veterans educa-
tion contact James J. McInnis at
the Centennial Building, phofie
227-5321' or see County Service
Officer, Albert T. Thames. In
the Wewahitchka area, veterans
may contact Mrs.-Betty Holloway
at the Wewahitchka High School.
Last year adults were issued
11,420 high school diplomas in
Florida; 5,102 high school equiv-
alency diplomas based on G.E.D.
test scores and 6,318 issued from
local adult schools. The Gulf
County Adult Institute issued 63
diplomas during the 1969-70
school year. Many'of these gradu-
ates needed only a few credits

The Department of Natural Re-

and each aspect of their duties is
coupled with the problem of try-
ing to work with everyone and to
keep them happy. "We must please
the strict conservationists on the
one hand and the group that would
put the land and water to use",
Cliff Willis, assistant to the direc-
tor of this department told the Ro-
tary Club last Thursday.
The department is charged with
maintaining and planning of Flor-
ida's waterways, oil search control
and shipments, parks and outdoor
recreation and marine resources
including marine patrol duty.
Locally, the department's opera-
tion is best known by its policing
of the seafood industry including
shrimp and oyster harvesters and
Willis pointed out to the Rotary
members that the department pro-
tects a vital natural resource since
shrimp harvesting brings more mo-
ney to the State of Florida than
any other marine resource.

The Federal Medicare program,
now in its fourth year, pays the
largest share of the health care
bill for people 65 and over, accord-
ing to David P. Robinson, Sbcial
Security Field Representative for
"A Social Security Administra-
tion study shows that in the year
ending June 30, 1969, Medicare
paid $6.3 billion, or 47 percent,
of the total personal health care
bill for persons 65 or older in the
United Sates," Robinson said.
Other government programs-
such as Medicaid and the Veterans
Administration-paid $3.4 billion,
or 25 percent, of the health care
bill for the aged, according to the
"Private payment accounted for
1$3.8 billion, or 28 percent of the
bill. Of this total, direct out-of-
pocket payments accounted for
$3.2 billion; private health insur-
ance and philanthropy paid for the
rest," Robinson said.
The average annual medical bill
for the elderly was $692 per per-
son, according to the study. "But
the average out-of-pocket outlay
for any one 65 or older was only
$163," Robinson stated.
Medicare includes both hospital
insurance, which is financed by
contributions to social security
and medical insurance, a voluntary
program financed by individual
premium payments and matching
contributions by the Federal Gov-
Medicare is administered by the

Medicaid, the State-Federal pro-
