After serving :for less than a
year, Wayne Gay offered his' res-
ignation as Civil Defense Direc-'
tor. for Gulf County to the Board
of County Commissioners] Tues-
Richard Lancaster,. long asso-
ciated with Gulf.. Civil Defense,
was present at the meeting and
was. immediately appointed new
Civil Defense chiAo.by the board.
Troy Jones, whqyq s also pres-'
ent, had filed his application to
be considered as -irector, but
asked the Board to give the po-
sition to Lancaster. "I didn't
know he was' interested," Jones
said, "I think -you should give
the position, to him, since :he.
knows more abqut-the workings
of Civil Defense than apy other
man in the county. No person in
Gulf County is fully qualified
under Government standards",
Jones also asked for coopera-
tion of the Board in working
with Lancaster and cited the
need for adequate storm shelter
areas as one of the many prob-
lems to be solved.
Architect Charles A. Gaskih
reported to the Board that work
on the new Mosquito Control
building was progressing accord-
ing to schedule.
Gaskin also attempted to calm
a misunderstanding .toward his
fees for the building design.
"The only mistake made was
that we neglected to sign a con-
*tract before work started". The
Board. agreed with him. The ar-
chitect went on to say that the
only fee figures mentioned were
based on original thinking of a
- $45,000 building. The .project
now underway, is costing in the
neighborhood of $75,000.
Donald Heine, representing the
Northwest Florida Develop'ment
Council presented the County a
set of.. information which- con-
sisted of .a .land use and owner-
ship study including coded maps

information was, the necessary
first step toward acquiring any

Tax Amendment's Real Aim Is
To Tax Florida Firms
The flabbily worded attempt to lift some'of the present
prohibitions against an income tax from Florida's Constitu-
' tion deserves a "no" vote.
.this. is despite the moralistic crusading of Gov. Reu-
-bin4Askew, who cast a "no" vote himself three years ago
on a moe- carefully worded- proposal, and the frantic
finger-pointing of Lt. Gov. Tom Adams, attempting to tar
all who oppose with the "fat-cat" label.
Once we get behind all the name calling and look
closely at the proposal upon which the people will vote,
we find substantive flaws in the Askew-Adams arguments.
The first thing we hear is that this is the only way to
tax the huge multi-state corporations, such as General
Not only is this extremely doubtful but it is certain
that the proposed tax will fall much more heavily upon
the small to medium-sized corporation--chartered in
Florida-than it will upon the corporate giants.
Since Askew contends ,tht Florida's small, business-
man is now taxed fifth-highest in the nation, it' is beyond
the realm of reason for anyone to contend that the way to
'.correct the alleged imbalance is to increase it for a sub-
Sstantial segment of Florida's small business.
The proposed constitutional amendment does not seem
to us to be a crusade to tax the multi-state corporations
because .there is an excellent chance that this could be,
Done by law, without such an amendment.'
If this is true-and we believe it to be-then 'the
amendment is necessary only to tax- corporations and
other businesses which are residents of the State of
Thumb through the yellow pages of the telephone
book and you will see the names of the objects of this
"Crusade". Many of them wear overalls and have cal-
luses on the palms of their hands.
Had ft been the intent of Askew, or of the Legisla-.
ture, to reach the corporate giants, why did they nbt'
proceed to do so .by law?
Florida's Constitutioni at present forbids only taxing
'the incdnes iof "residents or citizens, of the state."t It
does not forbid the taxing of incomes of out-of-state resi-
As we understand the Supreme Court ruling on a cor-
porate income tax, the court basically-ruled that a corpor-
ation is a "citizen or resident" within the meaning of Flor-
ida statutes. It did not rule on whether corporations
chartered out of state are citizens and residents of the
Our point-is that the.huge multi-state corporations-
with very few exceptions--are not. chartered in the state
and therefore can hardly be classed as citizens or resident
of the State of Florida. It is the Florida businesses which
fall into this category.
Recently, Hanlk Drane, Political Editor of The Florida
Times-Union, interviewed five attorneys in the state-
among them.,some of Florida's recognized constitutional
experts-on various questions concerning the proposed
All five-including Art England, of Miami, who is
drawing up a proposed bill for the House Finance and
Taxation Committee to implement, the tax amendment if it
is ratified-agreed that a state income tax could be levied
under the amendment upon incomes of citizens of another
state received from employment in Florida.,
"We've always been able' to do this," England com-
If a citizen of Alabama who works in Pensacola could
now be taxed on his salary by the State of Florida, why
could not a corporate citizen and resident obfMichigan be
taxed on the portion of its income that is earned.. inFlor-
We are not saying that such a procedure would be,
fair but merely that it appears possible. New Jersey does
not levy an income tax upon its own residents, but it does
tax the incomes of those who live in New York and work
in New Jersey.
And if this procedure is discriminatory, it is no more
so than the discriminatory provisions in the proposed.
Or, if procedure by simple statute was considered too
legally risky, why was not the proposed constitutional
amendment limited to allowing a tax only on multi-state
corporations domiciled outside the state?' If it is now
legal to discriminate against some specific forms of busi-
'ness income and in favor of others in the present amend-
ment, why would this suggestion be any less legal?
Further, the fact that. iuch a route was not even at-
tempted makes the claim that the amendment is primarily
designed to tax huge multi-state corporations less than
Put in this context, the amendment is specifically de-
signed to get at those .corporations which are residents
and citizens of the State of Florida.
And to put it up as a crusade to get, at those "huge
multi-state corporations" is so much balderdash.
Having'said that, we do not believe it would be fair-
although we do believe it would'be possible-to single out
the foreign corporations by law. Neither .o we believe
it fair to single out certain types of businesss entity by
amendment while leaving alone tomipetifig tfyes.
It is true that a business tax i politically feasible but
that does not make it politically courageous.
If, as Askew and Adams claim, Florida's tax struc-
ture is so regressive at present and if, as Askew and
Adams claim, the state is in such desperate financial shape
(contentions, by the way, that we do not accept at face
value) then the only possible way to get tax reform is to
scrap regressive taxes and put all types of businesses and
individuals on an equal footing.
This cannot be done without substantial amounts of
money. And the only method that we cani see to do it is
by an income tax on all business entities. and individuals.
If Florida is to reconcile itself to the! present spiral
of state spending-a reconciliation we have not yet been
able to accept-let it do so with its eyes open rather than
in a piecemeal fashion.

Extra Hour Of Sack Time
Scare Up A
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Highway Patrol today appealed to
parents, drivers and trick-or-
treaters to "scare up" some traffic
safety this Halloween night
Colonel Reid Clifton, director'
of the Patrol said, "Added pedes-
trian traffic on Halloween night,
plus an increase in pedestrian
deaths calls for a review of safety
lessons. Parents, drivers and trick-
or-treaters have an enormous re-
sponsibility to help prevent acci-
According to Patrol records pe-
Sdstrian deaths are up 24 percent
over 1970. During the first nine
months of 1971, 330 pedestrians
were killed in traffic accidents.
There were 267 killed during the
same period last year.
Clifton reminded trick-or-treat-
ers that safety always comes first
and said their most important task
would be walking along and cros-
sing streets at the proper places. '
Parents were encouraged to de-
vise clever makeup for children's
faces instead of masks because
masks might limit vision. Clifton
also suggested costumes made of
light colors to add to the child's
safety by making him easier to
see at night.
"Drivers should use extra cau-
tion because of increased pedes-
trian traffic, especially in residen-.
tial areas," concluded Colonel Clif-
Bond. Sales In Gulf

I've never been very exicted
over the President's planned
trip to China. I have no more
faith in Chinese Communists
than I have in Russian Commun-
ists. Communist's money, arm-
ament and encouragement has
kept the war going in Vietnam
and in Korea before that. They
did so with one aim in mind,
the weakening and ultimate de-
struction of the U. S.'
I have no quarrel with the
.Chinese 'people. I have lived
with them and worked with
them, loved and admired them
lor their courage and industry,
their good sense and ability,
their friendliness and hospitality
and their ancient wisdom.
Whether they are Free Chinese
in Formosa or slave Chinese on
the mainland, they reflect the
leadership that controls them.
People, the rank and file, are
all the same, be they Americans,
Russians, Chinese or whatever.
They want peace, worthwhile
employment, food, clothing and
recreation. Their enemies are
created for them and their emo-
tions fired to distrust and hat-
red by those 'who lead them.
When America was young and
growing up she had the friend-
ship and goodwill of the whole
world. To become an American
was the hope and ambition of
countless millions. They came by
the thousands from everywhere
and all joined hands to build a
great nation and personal suc-
cess. Jew and Gentile, white,
black, yellow and brown, all
worked shoulder to shoulder to
build a better land for all.
Then the forces of evil took
over. Nation rose against nation,
We were appalled last week when attorney Bob Moore
called ,to see if I would run an article by him defending
the Governor's proposed Corporate Income Tax to be vot-
ed on next Tuesday. Bob didn't really believe that we'd
print the letter, since we are opposed to the tax.
If anybody else harbors -these delusions on any mat-
ter whatever, you can get rid of them right now. True
we edit most everything that goes into the paper for con-
tent, interest, etc., but we try our best to make this a com-
munity newspaper, printing things the community wants
to-and needs to- know- about. In this case, the public needs
to know both sides of the Corporate Tax issue.
For those of- you who have written letters and not
had them printed,, we need to stress once again that a let-
ter must be written in good taste (not slanderous, libel-
ous or obscene) and MUST BE SIGNED by the writer.
We get letters regularly that aren't signed and we will
not publish them. We broke this rule one time last sum-
mer when an anonymous writer wrote praising the sum-
mer recreation program. As a rule, though, unsigned
letters will not be printed. We can leave off the name in
printing, but:the letter must be signed.
Bob's letter hadn't arrived at this writing, so if you
don't see it in the paper this week, it's because he decided
not to write it;/not because we refused to print it.
You've seen cartoonists come up with various ways
of expressing what will make a grown man cry. I know
what will make Bill Barlow cry; FSU losing to the Florida
"Gators" by a score of 17-15. We went to Gainesville
that fateful Saturday to see the Seminoles snare the Ga-
tors, but things didn't work out, that way.
To top off the loss at the ballgame, we had a small
accident on the way down and got stuck in traffic inside
Gainesville on the way back for nearly two hours.
Some kids out of Tallahassee, driving one'of these
"economy?" foreign cars with no brake lights, squatted
in front of us near Trenton, in bumper to bumper
traffic. While I was wrinkling up his back end I kept
waiting -on the guy in back to do the same thing to me.
He saw my lights come on and managed to stop in time,
It looks to me as if Gainesville police could do some-
thing about their after the game- traffic problem. In a
city where a stadium can hold over 65,000 people, some-
thing should be done to provide some parking and some
help in exiting. It doesn't take 20 minutes to get out of
Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee and on your way home.
Tallahassee provides necessary traffic police to clear the
people out. We left the stadium in Gainesville at 4:20 and
at 6:00 P.M., we were still within a mile of Florida Field.
There's no excuse for that.
Part,of the-problem could very well be, no traffic con-
trollers. We saw two policemen going into the stadium
and three coming out. That's not enough for that kind

higher than 10th in state ratings. Here you have a team
with a perfect record, mostly with schools in a larger clas-

was runner-up last year, doesn't it stand to reason we
should be in at least second place with a perfect record?
Schools in this area are rated above Port St. Joe who
haven't met near the test of their abilities as have the

Many of Florida's sub-tropical
plants do not go through this hard-
ening process so we must try to
reduce cold damage on these plants
by artificial means. Nutrition is
very important for increasing a
plant's resistance to cold injury. 'A
plant that is favorably ,supplied
with lall elements essential for
growth will survive lower tempera-
tures and recover faster from cold
injury than plants not receiving
proper fertilization. In other words,
a plant suffering from a lack or
inbalanced of fertilization will be
more susceptible to cold injury. An
optimum 1 e ve l of fertilization
should be maintained throughout
the year. Most plants grow during

neither do plants!
Another way to minimize cold
injury is by suitable windbreaks.
Windbreaks reduce wind speed
and also conserve heat in an area.
Evergreen plants make excellent
windbreaks which can be effective-
ly placed so that an area stays
warmer than it would if it were in
the open. You can thus, protect
some of your tender plants by
placing them inside a windbreak of
Covering materials such as cloth,
polyethylene plastic and paper can
also be used to reduce cold injury.
These temporary coverings trap
heat and maintain higher tempera-
tures near the plant. Other mater-
ials stch as leaves or soil can be
piled around the base of plants to
keep the stems from freezing.
Leaves may be injured or even
killed but these coverings may pre-
vent the entire stem and roots
from being killed.
Sprinkler systems have also been
used for cold protection. A con-
stant flow of water over the plant
/may be of value, "however,' if the
supply of water is stopped or is
not supplied fast enough, ice can
build up to the point where its
weight breaks the branches of the
plant. This method is usually not
suitable for homeowners since
large quantities' of water are need-
ed and most irrigation systems
To summarize, a good healthy
plant is the best insurance against
cold damage. A healthy plant
means a proper fertilization and
watering program are used. Use
Windbreaks or protective cover-
ings for the entire plant or at least
for the main stem when a cold
snap is anticipated. If all fails and

Keep a light on in front of the
house so that there is no danger
of children being injured by walk-
ing into objects or holes they can
not see in the dark. If there is a
pet in the household, keep him
away from the door.
Children enjoy putting on make-
up as part of their costumes but
be careful of what they use. Cheap
makeup can in many instances
cause complexion problems for
youngsters or hurt their eyes.
Finally, when your child goes
out for the evening, make sure
you know where he or she is going

Halloween can be a real treat
for everyone. One way to insure it
is to follow these simple rules of
safety. The result will be an en-
joyable and safe evening for child-
ren and parents alike.
Housewives, are you aware of
your reporting responsibility as an
employer? Most folks are, but
some 'of you' may not be. If you
employ a maid, baby sitter, cook,
gardener, or other similar "house-
hold hell, you may be required to
pay social security tax on their
wages, according to David Robin-
son, Social Security Field Repre-
sentative for Gulf County.
Briefly, this is how it works. If
you employ household help and
pay that person as much as $50
cash wages in a calendar quarter,
you are required to pay social se-
curity tax, Robinson stated. The
easiest way to do this is to with-
hold the tax required each pay
day from your employee's wages.
You are required to match this
with an equal amount. The money,
along with your quarterly report
form, is sent to the District Direc-
tor .of Internal Revenue Service
that services your area. These re-
ports must be filed no later than
the end of the month following the
month the quarter ends.
Robinson stated that failure to
'file these reports and pay the tax
could make you liable for a penal-
ty. So, if you employ household
help, abide by the law pay the
social security tax when required.
If you need help, call your social
security office at Panama City. Re-
sidents of this area should dial "0"
and ask for WX-4444. The office
is located at 1316 Harrison Ave.,
Panama City, and is open Monday
through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to
