is there are only 134 potential

saidb the 186 customers came
about by counting vacant lots as

idea of the system was first ori-

Board write each Oak Grove res-

Chairman Rudy Pippin said
the Board had several alterna-
tives. They can go ahead with
the system as planned with in-
creased rates. They. can put in
water now and apply for a fed-
eral grant for funds to intsall
the sewer later.

that both applications will be

Chairman Pippin said that con-

tomers without a 'storage tank

that Snell also said "If you don't

No matter how much power is concentrated in the
Federal Government in Washington, there are always
those who wish to see the Federal Government remain a
servant of the people, rather than a nursing mother to
a conglomeration of people fast reaching the point ,where
they want to be babies rather than do things for them-
selves. This time a small but very vocal "super-con-
sumer Protection Agency". The legislation is now in the
Senate Government Operations Committee. The measure
would establish a new government bureau (yes, another
..; oner) with sweeping authority that makes the powers
of the FBI, the CIA, the IRS and the Treasury Depart-
ment seem pale by comparison-in a country that has, up
tod now, avoided becoming a police state.
If this seems an exaggeration, hear this: under the
"proposed "Consumer Protection Agency" measure, the
head of the new bureau (with the innocuous title of
,"Consumer Advocate") would be granted:
-authority to intervene as a full-fledged party in all
Formal proceedings of existing government regulatory
-sweeping subpoena powers that would enable him
'to force other government agencies to turn confidential
"files over to him;
, -similar power to force
individuals and companies;
information from private,
-unlimited authority to release such information
(whether true, or proven, or not) at his whim and will;
, -authority to take any existing agency to court as
a full party to a case, whether or not he had participated
in previous proceedings;
-and much more.
Great pressure is being brought upon members of
the Congress and Senate by aggressive lobbyists for the
"super-consumer" movement. Representatives are being
told that to vote for a strong bill will count them as "pro-
consumer"; to vote against it, or to vote to limit the
Consumer Advocate's authority, will mark him as "anti-
consumer". And members of Congress, faced with the
prospect of having to vote on the "protection agency"
bill on the eve of the election, when millions of consumers
will go to the polls to elect a new. Congress, could very
well be panicked into passing the measure.
Passage of the proposed "Consumer Protection Agen-
cy" bill would constitute a dangerous breakdown of the
American idea of limited, restricted government. Con-
sumer "protection" is fine-but as for a Super Spy agen-
cy, this we can do without.
If 'a person wanted to buy a gallon of. "pure" water
at any time in our past, he ,had to purchase distilled r
water. This was ,true even during the period of time t
when our streams were supposedly.unpolluted. But, even n
distilled water is not pure, even though it costs consider- v
ably more than ordinary tap water. It still ,contains a T
small amount of dissolved solids .and probably is not as i
palatable as ordinary tap water and would not support e
* aquatic life.
.Our national manufacturing operations discharge c
more than 14 trillion gallons of water per year. If these a
-14 trillion gallons had to be upgraded from their original t
state as river water to "pure" water of some degree, it s
could cost anywhere from $7 billion per year to $7 tril- t
lion per year, depending on the "purity" required. Too, b
we must remember, that in days gone by, when our streams c
were supposedly pure, they caused some of, the worst
typhoid epidemics our nation has ever, known. w

we are far more concerned about

Crime is like the weather. We

much about it. Thanks to the ac-

The City of Port St. Joe has run upon this problem
recently, of how pure is pure. The Environmental Protec-
oin Agency was giving the City a hard time about its

ray, will be 90% pure when it is discharged into the bay.
The EPA was "disturbed" about the future of marine life
n St. Joseph Bay and the clam population in the South
nd of the bay in particular. The EPA men were worried.
But, lo and behold, one of them happened to think

nd the City has dumped its partially treated water into,
he Bay and still the clam population thrives, along with
shrimp and 'many species of fish. It dawned upon him,
hat the discharge of 90% pure liquids could be nothing

ATLANTA, GA. There were
2169 low-income Gulf County peo-
ple on the U. S. Department of
Agriculture's Donated Food pro-
gram in January as compared to
2153 the previous month, Russell
H. James, Southeast regional ad-
ministrator of USDA's Food and
Nutrition Service, reports.
Taking the state as a whole,
James noted, there was a slight
decrease of 5,825 in the number
receiving food assistance in Jan-
uary down from 401,247 to 395,
Most of the decrease, he point-
ed out was in the food stamp pro-
gram operating in 20 Florida coun-
ties in January. During the month,
163,693 people were issued over
$4 million in food coupons. Of this
amount, close to $3 million was in
free or bonus stamps. This was
.4,692 fewer than the number is-
sued stamps in December.
Florida is scheduled to have all
of its 67 counties on the food
stamp program by May 1, James
In the food distribution program,
231,729 persons were given more
than 6:5 million pounds of USDA
donated food. This was a slight
drop of 1,133 from the number on
the program in December.

How is this related to parlor games?
The Ramp is a wild onion and the hunters go out

John W. Gardner, former Secretary of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare, writing in The Reader's Digest, asks,
"Suppose that you could offer one word of advice to a
young person living in the year 2000. One word! What
would it be?" Mr. Gardner has posed this question to
many friends over the past several years. He found the
most frequently mentioned word was "Live". Live rank-
ed among the three words most often mentioned for first
place. The other two words were "Love" and "Learn".
After these first three words, Mr. Gardner found
that agreement breaks down for choice of a fourth, a fifth
and so on. However, after much searching and meditat-
ing, he arrived at what he calls, "Seven Words to Live
By." 'He placed them in the following order: "Live, love,
learn, think, give, laugh, try." As a final observation he A
asked: "Can you pack better advice into seven words?"
The Darlington, Wise., "Lafayette County News"
editor says: "A member of the older generation stated,
'I survived WW II, three auto accidents, 2 bad marriages,
4 grandchildren, 2 depressions, 13 company strikes, 3
mortgages, and a bankruptcy-and some fresh teen-ager
tells me: You don't know-what life is all about."

To Garden Club
Mrs. J. W. Clemons has pre-
sented the Port St. Joe Garden
Club with a statue of St. Fran-
cis of Assissi. The statue was
made by her husband.
St. Francis is known as the
patron saint of birds and wild-
life. All garden clubs work to
preserve birds since birds live
mostly on insects which would
otherwise destroy plants.
A saint is a person who devot-
ed his life to worshipping God
and serving man.
St. Francis was born in Assisi
of wealthy parents and was a
very flighty youth. Taking part
in street battles and frivolous,
selfish living finally landed him
in jail. While. imprisoned for
many months, he realized that

Ellis Tells obf the
Call to Serve God
Rev. Sidney Ellis told the Rotary
Club last Thursday, that getting
into the ministry is a combination
of receiving a call to serve and a
period of examination and prepar-
ation. "I can only speak of the
preparation for service in the Epis-
copal, but I think every church is:
similar", he said.
Ellis said the most important
step for going'into the ministry'
is to receive the call of God to 1
serve. "Everything else is exam-
ination by leaders of the church
and' concentrated2study to prepare
oneself,for the business of serving
as a pastor". Ellis listed courses a
budding minister takes in study of I
the old and new, Testament verse
by verse in English and Greek, a
study of theology, music, how to
organize and how to preach. "All
of these things merely prepare
one academically-the rest is go-
ing on experience, good judgment
and faith.", .
"The ministry is a 244hour-a-
l"* --' h whichh gets him involv-
ed in all kinds of happiness, sor-
row and tragedy. .One must defin-
itely have the call .of God in or-

New Traffic Manual Developed
A new Uniform Traffic Safe-
ty Manual, setting up minimum
standards for all roads in the
state, is being developed by the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation following legislation
which makes Florida the first
state in the nation to adopt and
require state-wide road safety
The new manual, which will
include standards for design,
construction and maintenance of
all roads, is being developed by
a team of engineering special-
ists at the University of Miami
under a $20,000 grant from Flor-
ida DOT and the Governor's
Highway Safety Commission.
First step in development of
the manual, slated for comple-
tion by March 1, 1973, is a re-
search of all available federal,
state and local standards relat-
ing to highway safety.
Included in this study will be
engineering safety features, pe-
destrian sidewalks, pavement de-
sign and construction, railroad
crossings, maintenance of roads
and right of way, identification
and removal of roadside hazards
of obstacles, breakaway pole sup-
ports, design of bridge railings,
special hazard guardrails, safety
on detours or at construction
sites, parked vehicles, location
of traffic signals, roadway lights
ing and pedestrian bridge design.

If you expect to move and are
one.of the almost 27 million people
who get social security checks
every month, you should notify
your social security office. Prompi
notice of a move will assure de

The easiest way to change yomt

times additional information ib
needed to change your address
!For this reason, a phone call t<
