PAGfli TWO THE STAR, Port St. Jo, Plorida
The Florida Legislature convened Monday in a special
session which was originally called to approve a corpora-
tion income tax, approved by the voters in November.
From what we read of the special session, it appears
that the consumer, the man in the street, the ordinary
"Joe" will be lucky if that's all the taxes with which he
is saddled. It now appears that indirectly Mr. Average
Citizen's sales tax is also going to take a hike. Maybe
not with an extra penny or certain items being declared
non-exempt, but an increase just the same.
Governor Reubin Askew is asking that merchants
who collect the sales tax, not be-allowed the three per
cent of what they collect as payment for handling the
bookkeeping on the tax collections. The Governor argues
that the collection costs should be a part of the cost of
doing business and passed on to the customer. If 'this
thing works out like the Governor wishes, won't this, in
effect raise your sales tax?. or the price you pay for
goods? Whichever way you slice it, it will mean more
money out of YOUR -pocket whether, it be increased
prices or increased taxes. It's all money.
A survey by a Florida State University marketing
survey team, reports that ho business Qperp.ting today
can collect, handle, keep up with and remit to the state,
the sales tax for the three percent now paid by the State
for- such services. This is because the merchant must
keep an accurate record on what is taxable and what is
not taxable; on what was paid in and not paid in. In
other words, two sets of books must be kept; a set on tax-
able items and a set on non-taxable items, and they had
better be correct!
If the Governor gets his way in removing the pay-
ment to business for handling the tax collecting chore,
it would seem the proper thing to do then is to reduce
the sales tax to around two percent and apply it to every-
thing, then the collecting merchant would merely have to
add up his sales, take two percent and send it to Talla-
hassee. The end result would probably be more income
from the sales tax, less frustration to everybody and cer-
tainly less expense to those who are charged with the
tax collecting bookkeeping.
It seems also that this session will prove we opponents
of the corporation tax correct. Electric companies have
already served notice that application of the tax to these
corporations will mean a rate increase. Where are those
people in California and New York who were going to
pay this tax the proponents kept yelling about?
'Paid $85.80 In
The average motorist in Florida
traveled 10,000 miles last year on
780 gallons of gasoline and paid
$85.80 in gasoline taxes, the Flor-
ida State Chamber of Commerce
reported this week.
Commenting in its Weekly Busi-'
ness ,Review, the State Chamber
said: it computed the average mo-
torist figures using various trans-
portation sources in order to in-
dicate the impact which 41 billion
vehicle miles of travel on Florida's
highways in 1970 had on the state's
For instance, the State Chamber
said Florida had 4.1 million regis-
tered motor vehicles last year and
they, along with several million
more highway users which entered
the state, consumed 3.2 billion
gallons of gasoline. This was in
turn responsible for about $354
million in gasoline taxes reaching
state and federal coffers.
"Florida, along with nine other
states, made up over Palf the total
roadway travel which was done in
the United States during 1970. The
other states were California, New
York, Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and
Indiana." noted Ronald S. Spencer
Jr., Execuotive Vice President of

Meany Is A Meanie
George Meany is a meanie.
It wasn't through ignorance that George Meany, pres-
ident of the AFL-CIO, insulted the President of the
United States recently in Miami. Mr. Meany knew better.
He didn't get where he is today without finding out what
the proper protocol is when one is dealing with the Pres-
ident of the United States. -One respects the office, even
if he abhors the man holding it,
If Mr. :Meany wants to dislike Richard Nixon and
'work actively for his defeat, that's his business. But
when he publicly, insults the Presidency, he has, in effect.
Insulted the:entire United States. Unless we forget, too,
it takes a country like the United States with its system
of free. enterprise, for the George Meany's to exist at all.
Mr. Meany came back after the news reports to. de-
clare that he hadn't insulted the President that Mr.
Nixon had only "concocted" the insult to make him, Mr.
Meany, look bad.

Bascom explains his plan for

a ship especially designed for
the task. The Alcoa Seascope,
which he designed, is similar to
a drilling ship with a well in the
center through which up to 20,-

and recovered. Attached to the
end ofthe drill pipe is an instru-

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word is thoughtfuly
weighed. The spoken word barely asserta; the printed word thoroughly con-
vines. Mwe spoken word is lost; the printed word remains.
But the news stories were too quick, too explicit and
too much in agreement as to the details for a claim such as
this from Mr. Meany.
When the President walks in a President elected
by the people the band plays "Hail to the Chief" even
if the President is Mickey Mouse. The musical salute
wasn't given in Miami. When the President speaks,
polite attention is the order, not derisive laughter, catcalls
and insults. Labor was rightfully indignant with the re-
bellious college kids of a .couple years back for their im-
polite behaviour to the President and others in authority.
Now, here are the leaders of labor doing the very same
thirig. Also, regular routine is resumed only after the
President leaves the room at his own pace. One doesn't,
with proper decorum, gavel him out of the room and all
but ask him to leave.
We hope that by now, Mr. Meany has realized the im-
propriety of his actions. Certainly one in his position
cannot afford to be anything but a gentleman. He can't
afford to be a "meanie".
the instrument pod will be re-
tracted and replaced by a pair
of tongs guided by another tele-
vision camera, which will pick
up items from the -cargo for
closer inspection. Finally, if the
search turns up a complete ship
suitable for salvage, the crew
will deploy what Bascom terms
"super-tongs", a pair of giant
grippers floated by large pon-
toons that can enclose anunder-
water object 30. feet in diame-
ter and 40 feet long, and bring
it to the surface.
The Alcoa ship will be based
at Freeport in the Bahamas
where extensive sea trials will
be conducted. If the tests are
successful, the ship will' be
transferred to the Mediterran-
ean where it is believed over
15,000 wrecks lie buried.
Since most of these ships re-
flect the civilization of their
time, the recovery of only a few
would fill in many gaps in the
historical knowledge of the area.
Most of the ancient wrecks so
far detected in the Mediterran-
ean have .been largely eroded by.
waves and the attacks of sea
life. Only the most resistant ma-
terials, such as ceramics, bronze
and glass remain as archeologi-
cal records. So scanty is the
knowledge of the distant past

warship over a period of 400

By Area Social Security Office

a last minute rush by youngsters
trying to get a social security card
before their Christmas jobs be-
gin," David Robinson, Social Se-
curity Fiedl Representative for
Gulf County, said this week.
Most of the applications for
numbers have to be screened
through the central files located
in Baltimore, Maryland, and this
takes about two weeks. "These
young people do not know that
there will be this delay and expect
to be issued a number immediately
upon application," Robinson said.
Many employers will not let a
person begin work until he has his
social security card. It's not un-
usual for a young person looking
for Christmas work to lose the job
to someone else simply because
he doesn't have a social security
number and the other applicant

Thanksgiving dinner with my parents over on Palm Bou-

Macon to eat supper with Frenchie's folks and get one of
our week end vacations. We always take "Pierre" along.
We leave the house hundreds of times during the
week and "Pierre" never makes a move to come along.
Sometimes, he never looks up from his snoozing place be-
hind my recliner when we walk out the door. Thursday,
as we were leaving to go over to my parents' house,
"Pierre" nearly knocked everybody down trying to get
out the door with us. He knew it was Thanksgiving and

"something special" every year, maybe we, as customers,
should try a little harder to try and see if we can't do
our Christmas shopping at home before we go traipsing

During the 1970-71 planting
season landowners in Gulf Coun-
ty planted 1,565,050 tree seed-
lings. Expressed in another way
this means approximately 2,158
acres of woodland. During the
previous planting season lpnd-
owners in Gulf County planted
531,050 seedlings, or approxi-
mately 730 acres.
Forest products make up a
major portion of the economy of
Gulf County and the State of
Florida. It is the second largest
industry in the state, and pro-
duces 1.2 billion dollars annu-
ally. This means approximately
105,000 jobs for timber industry
Besides furnishing material
for over 5,000 products, trees
prevent soil erosion, protect wa-
ter sheds, enhance recreation
areas, contribute to support of
governments in the form of
taxes, act as air filters, noise ar-
resters, replenish the air with
oxygen to breath, support all
forms of wildlife and lower the
temperature on hot summer
Compared to the other states,
Florida ranks third in the na-
tion as a pulpwood producer.
Two-thirds of Florida's com-
mercial forest land is owned by
more than 90,000 different own-
ers. Half of the 90,000 are farm-
ers, most of whom own relative-
ly small areas of woodland-
about 160 acres on the average.
