"The Safes' Beaches In the WVorld Are In Gulf County"
Nets $3300 for
March of Dimes
;j,' Over $3,300.00 was pledged to the March of
0iimes for Port St. Joe's first Walk-A-Thon Saturday.
. Walk-A-Thon chairman, Mrs. Betty Presnell reported
that 127 started .the 20-mile journey with over 60%' of
those starting, finishing the prescribed course.
March of Dimes Chairman, Bob Moore said the
inmachers had pledges of approximately $156.00 per
mile for the group which started at 9:00 a.m. Saturday
with the last stragglers getting back to the starting
point about 6:00 p.m. Moore said one marcher had'
With his tongue in cheek manner, Moore said, *
"We hope to have more adult marchers next year. We
had Representatiye William J. Rish in the march this
year to .prpv.e that older people can make the grade,'.
Moore and'Mrs. Presnell were pleased with the
results from the first promotion of this kind held in
Gulf County, "We really didn't expect over 50 to 75
marchers to participate", Moore said.
The chairmen had praise for those who assisted
the marchers, especially the City and County law en-
forcement officials who gave the walkers valuable as-
sistance on the highway routes. "Many parents brought
refreshments along the route, which was a great help",
Marchers are ,still collecting their pledges this
week and should turn them in to Moore, Fred Witten
or Mrs. Presnell.

Society Wants Museum Left Open
The St. Joseph Historical So-
ciety has gone on record as op-
posing a move by the Department
of Natural Resources to close the
Museum here in Port St. Joe on
Monday of each week.
In a meeting Saturday, the So-
ciety agreed to request the De-
partment to continue leaving the
historic facility open seven days
a week. The group noted that
the Museum receives visitors
from every state in the nation
and some foreign countries. They
noted that it would be a disap-
pointment to tourists, in town
for only one day, to miss viewing
the many exhibits displayed
To assist them in their endea-
vor to keep the Museum open on
Monday, the Society asks that
local citizens write certain state
officials protesting the planned
move. The Society requests let-

We Favor School Tax
The big Thing going across the nation these days is
going to cpfWi to prevent schools from being financed by
local property taxis. The thinking, on f'iid iirf ace, is
valid in that the pioponeits of the removal say wealthy
:counties are able to furnish a better education for their
children than are smaller counties. In our opinion, there
are just as imiany kids 'doing well in college and in thi com-
petitive world from poor coutities as from richer counties
considering the percentage of people involved in the two
divergent economic situations.
Inr the large city areas, the people who write about
these things say the hard poverty abounds. In the more
urban areas, the grinding poor, coupled with the almost
non-existent tax revenue puts the schools at a disadvan-
tage. In other words, the suburban areas, with smaller
population, gets "along better than the bulging cities with
its ghettos of the poor. In this case, the minority are
expected to give up what they have worked for (the oppor-

Looking through the pile of information that crosses
, our desk each month, we see that this is Bicycle Month.
(Many who have seen our desk say nothing crosses it-
it's all still there). Bicycle' riding is catching on all over
and Port St. Joe is not immune from the "pedal feyer".
Each and every evening the streets are filled with bike
riders, young and old, out for a bit of exercise.
It is a testimony to our affluence that kids now ride
bicycles strictly for exercise. Serious transportation for
the kids is now by automobile.- When we. were a teen-ager
a young man or young lady Wished for a bicycle to keep
from walking. Now, a car is a necessity. Bicycles are
relegated to "little kids" and for exercise. A young man
just doesn't know the thrill of "towing" his girl on a bike.
Much more romantic than an automobile.

Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
Looking through an old family
scrapbook recently I ran across
a menu from the Palmer House
in Chicago. No date was shown,
but judging from other clippings
in the book, it must have been
in the late 1880's. Today the Pal-
mer House is a first quality ho-
"tel. In those days it was rated as
one of the most luxurious hotels
in the country.
As you compare menus of to-
day's establishments with the

50 cents; boned turkey with cran-
berry sauce, 50 cents; and roast
beef with rich gravy, sauce or
jelly was priced at 50 cents.
The only items I found that
might be compared with those to-
day were fresh sliced oranges at
20 cents, ice cream was 25 .cents
and a cup of coffee cost 15 cents.
They, of course, charge as high
as 75 cents for coffee in the plush
restaurants and hotels of today.
But, before you start arguing
with the man at your supermar-
ket meat counter you might
stop and recall that in 1880 a

good basic education, The richer areas get state money
based only on their own efforts to finance the schools.
We favor local taxation for schools to insure local
interest in schools. Surely, we don't enjoy paying taxes.
Nor do you. Where Linus clings to his blanket for se-
curity, you and I cling to our pocketbook as our "blanket
of security". And, like you, our "blanket" has been so
starched 'with the application of taxes to where it fairly
chafes. Still, we favor local taxes for schools.
Local taxes paid out of local pockets makes one aware
of what is going on. The' tax payer stays aware because
he likes to see what his money is being spent for. In the
case of spending state or federal money, we' are prone to
be a little more lenient with inefficiency, waste and cor-
ruption because the money made a circuitous journey from
our pocketbooks back to our home community, and we just
don't recognize that tax dollar being spent as the one which
was extracted from us.
We want you either to yell bloody murder when mon-
ey is extracted from you for a school program or be proud
that your money is going to finance a program which will
better prepare your youth for his future. But, in no way
can we approve an attitude of apathy because "it's only

people voluntarily walk for 20 miles? To ,help someone
else, of course. That makes our people a strange group
of individuals. They won't walk from one end of the block
to-the other to do oinething necessary, butjthey'll gather
up on their day of leisure and walk 20 miles to help some
poor kids who need the benefits of research to overcome
There were nearly 200 kids and adults spread out
over a half mile of highway Saturday doing their bit for
the March of Dimes. Others were concerned for them,
too, since they were so unaccustomed to hiking. An am-
bulance went along with the group in case there was an
emergency. The ambulance had a load, too-the shoes
of many of the kids.
This may not be an adequate way to say it, but Port
St. Joe should be proud of this display of concern. Why
walk when we are so prone to ride? Because someone
needed their efforts.

book I was startled to find an

Scott pointed out that in the
United States, the entire House

two-thirds of the Senate and the

Scott emphasized that 18% of
our population is between 18
and 21 years of age and they will
be voting in the fall elections.
"I feel it is mandatory- for bus-
iness people to become concern-

Race Track Funds
Florida's 67 counties received
$60,000 each in racing tax dis-
tribution this month, Comptrol-
ler Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson, Jr.,
announced this week.
The figures represent a $1,000
increase in distribution from the
same period last fiscal year.
The total of $368,500 in rac-
ing tax funds received by each
county so far this year leaves
slightly under $80,000 left to
be distributed for the 1971-1972
According to Florida law, each
county receives a maximum of
$446,500 in racing tax distribu-
The total distribution of $4
million this month is slightly
down from previous months, due
to closing of many dog and
horse tracks for the summer.
"The peak months in any year
are the winter months of high-
tourism," Dickinson said. "We
expect a general slackening of
proceeds during the remainder
of the fiscal year and, of course,
this will be reflected in lower
disbursements to each county."
Dickinson s t a t ed, however,
that all counties would receive
their full yearly allotments. Each
county receives an equal share
of the racing distribution, which
includes proceeds from horse
and dog track wagering, as well
as Jai Alai betting.

Don't use more electricity than necessary by setting your
' air conditioning thermostat too low. For economy, set the,
thermostat at the highest comfortable temperature
(usually about 78)
Operate as you like best. "Auto" gives better
humidity control and economy. "On" gives more uniform
air motion, sound level and temperature.
Away from home:
Set unit at 5V to 10* above normal setting with fan
on "Auto" for mildew protection and quick
comfort when you return.
Replace frequently. Clogged filters make unit work harder.
Keep clear of plants and obstructions.
Return air grill:
Don't block air flow with furniture or drapes.
Windows and doors:
Shut out heat from the sun with drapes or outside shading.
Adequate insulation and proper attic ventilation
will result in lower operating costs.
If you have any questions on the maintenance,
purchase, or installation of
electric air conditioning, contact the
application specialists at
your local Florida Power Office.

Type of equipment to install:
This depends on whether you intend to air condition
the entire house, a major portion of the house or just
one room. For one room, you will use a room unit.
For larger areas, you have your choice of room units
or a central system.
Size of unit to install:
The size depends on the physical characteristics of the
area to be air conditioned. Well-shaded, well-insulated
areas require minimum cooling-as low as 20 Btu's
per square foot. Unshaded windows and poor insulation
can double the amount of cooling required. A reputable -
air conditioning dealer will check your home and recommend
the proper size and type of air conditioning equipment ,
for you. If you are unable to obtain this information,
our application specialists will be happy to assist you. ,
THE HIGHER THE EFFICIENCY OF AN AIR CONDITIONING
UNIT, THE LOWER THE OPERATING COST WILL BE -
Here's how to determine the efficiency of a unit:
All air conditioning manufacturers rate the cooling
capacity of their units in British Thermal Units (Btu's)
and the electricity required for the unit in watts.
To determine the efficiency of a unit, divide the'Btu's
by the watts. The unit that delivers the most Btu's
per watt is the most efficient and therefore the most
economical to operate. The most efficient units
manufactured today produce from 7 to 10 Btu's
per watt so make certain that the unit you are
considering falls as high In this range as possible.
Other factors to consider:
It's important that the system be properly installed.
Also check the following:
1. Make certain that walls, ceilings and floors
are properly insulated.
2. Close openings and cracks around doors and
windows as well as openings into attics and fireplaces.
3. Use properly sized wiring.
4. Place the condenser where it can get free air flow.
Avoid putting it in garages or improperly
ventilated areas. -'

the point of discouraging boating
and the propagation of fish.
At a meeting of the Dead
Lakes. Water Management Dis-
trict held last Wednesday, Dis-
trict officials and Representative
Wi;am J. Rish pressed their
needs upon Randolph Hodges,
Dijctor, Florida Department of
Natural Resourees; Dr. Earle

W. E. Linne, Bureau of Permitt-

'~e state officials were taken
on a tour of the lakes and shown
the problem, frst iaiind.
Engineers have suggested the
water lowering device so the wa-
ter can be drained off the acqua-
tic growth, allowing the sunshine
to kill the roots of the innocuous
weeds. The treatment could be
performed as necessary.
Representative Rish informed
those present that he has been
talking to many state officials
in an effort to come up with the
necessary funds to construqt the
project. He sal&d the state offi-
cials present a reed the water
lowering maneuver would ef-
fectively control the weeds and

Hodges reported that his De-

be expended from his weed con-
trol budget and that he would
recommend to his Board that the
money be earmarked for this
project. He agreed that the pro-
ject was a necessary one and
that the type water level control
selected by the District is best
for this situation.
Dr. Frye said his department
