New McGovern Math
Senator George McGovern says that if elected, he will
cut defense spending by $30 billion (among other things).
He will hike corporate tax revenue by $17 billion. New
wealth and inheritance taxes will yield, claims McGovern,
another $11 billion. Welfare reform will save the U.S.
still another one billion dollars for a $59 billion total.
Alan Reynolds, an Associate Editor of National Re-
view magazine, has carefully analyzed-McGovern's arith-
metic. The Senator's "soak the rich" ideas are all wet,
finds Reynolds. For one thing, raising corporate taxes
would kill their expansion plans and the resulting new
jobs and more taxes paid.
Increased corporate taxes would in turn give us high-
er prices. Reduced spending would no doubt follow high-
er prices, adversely affecting employment and out export
market. I' : i
More benefits, higher costs and salaries will cancel
out any post-Vietnam military savings.
Higher inheritance taxes would encourage rampant
spending. If someone could not leave his money to the
next generation, he would do his best to die broke.
McGovern alleges that 56 Americans who made one
million dollars in a year paid no income taxes. He charges
that ITT has not paid income taxes for several years.
The Senator asserts that 40 percent of American corpor-
ations pay no tax.
Research proves that many millionaires lost money
the year before or gave huge amounts to charity. Charg-
ing that ITT has not paid taxes is an outright lie, says
Reynolds. McGovern's charge about corporations not
paying taxes fails to consider whether they made a profit
So McGovern's $59 billion in higher revenues is open
to speculation. But wait! Consider his expenditures for
food stamps, health insurance, urban renewal, etc. This
comes to $159 billion. Now, we take in $59 billion, and'
spend $159 billion. Under McGovern's Math, that is a
balanced budget. Under the old math, that is a $100
Added to his proposed $100 billion deficit is the pro-
jected 1973 deficit of $26 billion, giving us a grand total
of $126 billion worth of red ink. McGovern has a doctor-
ate in history; it should be in the new math.
'Share' or 'Control'
The new proposed federal revenue sharing procedures
sets up pretty stringent guidelines. There will be no frills
financed from the shared revenue, according to a news
story in the Florida Times-Union Saturday morning.
The story described "frills" as raises in salaries for mayors
and civid auditoriums "and such" what ever "and such"
According to a table released and published by the
newspapers,/Florida will be in. line for 149.5 million dol-
lars. With a ,$2 billion annual budget in Florida, you can
see how far this federal largese will go. It will go far
enough to decide policy on everything it! touches, even
though it will be only an infinitisimal part of whatever
project itMis used on in all likelihood.
Needless to say, we are opposed to the plan to share

"The establishment of a guid-

Because' the early influence of
the home is so important, psy-
chologists have been saying for
many years that the least the

guidance program in the elemen-

of pupils and parents solidify.
Like psychologists, most parents
and teachers in Gulf County,
have long felt the need of an
elementary school guidance pro-
gram. If a child is to be given
the opportunity to achieve the
maximum in self realization,
then no curriculum design cover-

Second, we feel like the Federal government should
reduce its tax take if it is getting enough money to share
with the states and municipalities. While we don't have
the Constitution committed to memory, it seems from
school days that the Constitution sets aside certain rights
(and responsibilities) for the states to assume and it is
only reasonable to assume that they should be allowed to
do so or do without. The Federals have no business col-
lecting the taxes needed to run the states.
Reason number three. There is no "wealth" to share.
The United States is deep in debt already from financing
projects both needed and foolish. Much of the borrowed
money was spent on worthwhile projects and there's no
denying that much of it was thrown away. -Nonetheless,
the United States should be taking any extra money it may
have and put it against the nation's debt, not parcel it out
to the sates like a carrot on a stick so the donkey can be
led in the way of the bureaucrats.

function of the school.
Although secondary schools
have yet to achieve the desired
level or operation in guidance,
the major accrediting agencies
have insisted upon some evidence
of an organized program of gui-

crediting standards are ,to be
met. However, none of these
agencies, to date, has insisted
upon any standards for the ele-

their pupils to the high schools.

decades advocating that teachers

In Issuing Social
ocipal security numbers are not
issued the day you apply for one,
according to David Robinson, So-
cial Security Field Representative
for Gulf County.
Until recently, all social security
cards were typed and issued by
the local social security office.
This function is now performed by
the Social Security Central Office
in Baltimore, Maryland. As such,
there is usually about a six weeks
delay from the time you make ap-
plication for a new social security
card and the date you receive it.
"The principal reason for .the
central issuance of all new social
security cards," Robinson said, "is
to reduce the incidents of individ-
uals having two or more social se-
curity numbers. If a person .has
more than one number, there is a
strong possibility that he will not
get credit for all his earnings. This
could affect the amount of his so-
cial security check in the future."
Robinson advises you to make
application for a social security
number at least eight weeks be-
fore you are going to need it. Of
course, if you have had a number
in the past, and have the stub of
the old card, a duplicate can be
typed from the stub immediately.

Tuesday's election seemed to be a big surprise to ev-
eryone especially many of the candidates. Most had
no idea they were going to be defeated.
The "political experts" who frequent the various cof-
fee spas in the town were no less tripped up in their prog-
nostications. Everyone had their ideas about who would
win before the election and each had their solution as to
why their favorite didn't win. These varied from a revolt
by the taxpayers to the fact his candidate didn't "contact
the right people".
With but one exception that of County Commis-
sioner S. C. Player-the incumbents are having trouble
staying in office and this usually isn't the case. The in-
cumbent usually has a fairly easy time of it in Gulf Coun-
ty unless he has done something drastic to make a large
segment of the people mad with him. But such isn't the
case in this election year.
We think this is good. Not that we particularly want
any of the incumbents defeated or vice versa, but we think
it's good because the people are apparently beginning to
take note of the fact that all of our governing bodies are
operating multi-million dollar budgets. They know where
that money comes from and want it administered in the
best manner possible. It looks to us like the era of doing
a favor for a few votes in Gulf County is gone and we say

We had our problems here at The Star last week.
We came to work Monday morning and turned everything
on to start heating up and get ready to start putting the
Turning something on doesn't necessarily make it
work, and one of our typesetters-the Ludlow, which casts
our large display type-decided it had worked hard enough
during the past few weeks and refused to get its metal pot
hot enough to cast type, So, we spent all day long Mon-
day putting in a new set of heaters only to have the ma-
chine still refuse to spit out its usual large amount of
type. This put us in a bind.
Not only had we lost a day, but we had to revert to
the old hand-set type until we could get a heater in from
Chicago which we didn't have on hand. The crazy ma-
chine has three sets in its innards, and we didn't have the
one we thought, we needed.
When they finally arrived Friday morning, we put
them in only to find that the symptoms we had diagnosed
weren't all true. We had failed to run laboratory tests.
So we got a laboratory technician in, Hozell Leavins, who
arrived at the decision that we weren't getting juice past
a reostat to the heaters. Then we called in the specialist
Harry Brewton who did corrective surgery in the reostat
until we can get some new parts.
Things like that are what make life in a newspaper
so interesting. Looking at the bright side though, the
machine could have decided to take its rest earlier when
we needed it most.

Last week we covered the prob-

salt. As mentioned, there are sev-
ernI ways to partially compensate
for the adverse growing conditions.
But perhaps the best way to solve
the problem is to grow salt toler-
Contrary to popular belief, the
number of plants which will with-
stand coastal planting is enormous.
Dr. E. A. Menninger in his book
"Seaside Plants of the World" lists
over 2,000 plants, which can be
grown near the coast. Dr. Mennin-
ger states that "the number of
plants which will oppose the sea's
fury is enormous and that build-

provide more variety, more charm
and perhaps more endurance than
is found in the very limited formu-

Vows were exchanged before
an arch interspersed with green-
ery and white flowers with
burning white tapers across the
top. Each side was flanked by
seven branched candelabra trees
and large fan-shaped baskets of
bridal flowers consisting of
white gladiolas and chrysanthe-
mums. Wedding palms complet-
ed the background. Family pews
were marked with large white

greenery were placed in the win-
dows to complete the scene.

by her father, entered the sanc-
tuary wearing a floor length

tiers, which was held by white
columns, was decorated with tiny

FLORIDA SUPREME COURT GROUP 3
A Matter of Ability
Can the people afford to let 12, years of dedi-
cated service to Gulf County given by Mr. Kennedy
go down the drain? We do not believe so. Would
you like to be joined into one county with Franklin,
Liberty, and Calhoun county or, combined with Bay
into one county? We do not believe so.
Mr. Kennedy has fought a very courageous
fight against such a bill that was introduced in the
legislature. Mr. Kennedy was one of the County
Commissioners from the smaller counties that was
able to get the State Association of County Com-
missioners to oppose such a move, and by no means
is this a dead issue, it's very much alive today. What
would his opponent's action be? Would it be as his
record on the school board reflects as a do nothing
or a me too member. Go to the courthouse and check
Mr. Kennedy's record and the record of his oppo-
nent and we do not believe you will have any trouble
in deciding which of these two men can and will serve
us best. The next few years will be "times that try
men's souls". Consolidation of counties is not the
only issue at stake for Gulf and other smaller coun-
ties. The race track funds being distributed on a popu-
lation basis is another. (Today all counties receive
the same amount of race track money). This bill
almost passed through the legislature. Mr. Kennedy
has demonstrated his ability in Tallahassee to lobby
against bills that would hurt Gulf County and for
those that would help.
We ask that you vote for continued progress
for Gulf County.
VOTE ON OCTOBER 3 FOR
FOR RE-ELECTION AS OUR
County Commissioner District 5

My Sincere Thanks
I would like to express my sincere thanks
and appreciation to the citizens of Gulf County
for the vote received in the September 12 Primary.
To those whose candidate was eliminated in
the first primary, I am still very sincere in my
effort to serve ALL the people o fGulf County. I
solicit your continued support and vote of confi-
dence on October 3.
