Oil Is Poured On
The City Commission appears
to have several difficulties iron-
ed out, which arose last week in
the construction of the new mul-
ti-million d o 11 ar wastewater
treatment plant here. The diffi-
culties ranged from charges by
the City's engineers that the con-
tractor wasn't building accord-
ing to plans and specifications;
charges by the contractor, that
no objections had been filed in
writing to them; and charges by
labor union organizations that
labor on the job isn't being paid
The City's Engineers represen-
tative, Angelo Cayo, cited 15 dis-
crepancies in the plans and call-
ed 9n the* contractor, Peabody-
Peterson to correct them at once.
The contractor said his firm
has not been notified in writing
after the notices were given ver-
bally nearly two weeks ago. He
said he would not make changes
on verbal orders.
Cayo asked that the construc-
tion firm's resident engineer be
replaced in order to provide bet-
ter communications between the
engineers and the firm for any
The City Commission backed
up Mayor Frank Pate in telling
the contractor that the City had
hired the engineering firm to
make sure the City got what it
was paying for. Pate said the

tract, which included changing

PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1972
President -Nixon returned from his,. trip to Russia
Thursday evening and addressed a joint session of Con-
gress immediately upon alighting from his helicopter,
bringing him from Andrews Air Force Base.
The press reported. that only about half the Congress-
men were present. ,
Maybe this explains why we have some of the action
out of Congress we receive in this part of our history.
It would seem to us that if a Congressman stayed
away from the speech, it was because he opposed the
President's actions in going to Russia in the first place.
However, if the same Congressmen planned to oppose the
President's agreements with the Russians in the future,
they should have at least came to hear what they were go-
ing to oppose.
We think that it is imperative in these perilous times
that those in a position to shape our destiny know the
full story before they cast a "yea" or "nay" vote which
will shape the history of our nation. Maybe we're in
the mess we are in Vietnam because Congressman in the
past have based their votes on their likes and dislikes of
the person doing the proposing rather than on the merits
and future implications of any policy to be acted upon by
I We can't picture any grown man, with the smarts
which supposedly qualifies that man to serve in a position
of guiding our nation, to be so petty as to remain absent
from a major address by the chief executive of our Na-
To have been present for the speech would have been
only common courtesy due the President. To remain
away was the commonest sort of discourtesy.
Whether or not the President made some good agree-
ments and points for our country while in Russia can
only be ascertained as more becomes known about the dis-
cussions between Nixon and the Russians. We do agree
with the President when he says that maybe we didn't get
too much accomplished, but at least we have found out
that the 'two nations can talk to each other and that's
much, much better than shooting.
In a recent issue of Christian Economics Magazine
Dr. Howard E. Kershner wrote: "I am often asked the'
secret of the great prosperity in Japan." Upon investiga-
tion, this is what Dr. Kershner found:
The length of the 'work week in Japan is about 20
percent longer tian in America.
Productivity gains in Japan are running from 10
percent to 15 percent a year as against 2 percent to 3
percent in the United. States.
The Japanese people save a much larger percentage
of their earnings than any other people. This buildup of
capital provides for the productivity increase noted.
Japanese workers seldom change jobs. They iden-
tify with the company for which they work, are proud of
it and work to make it successful. They want the com-
pany to prosper and rightly believe that makes their jobs
more secure and their future better.
In the same issue of Christian Economics, Dr. Kersh-
ner noted some of the trends here in America:
Too Late To Classify

The May issue of "In Depth

Dineen states, "After man dis-

Of every six employed persons, one works for the
government. There are about 13 million persons employed
by local, state and federal governments. This is an in-
crease of 22 percent in the last five years; in the same five
years, private (profit-making) employment rose only 12
percent. The total government payroll, not counting mili-
tary, went up from $57 billion five years ago to $95 bil-
lion this year; an increase of 66 percent, as. against only
47% increase in private (profit-making) payroll.
Given these facts, logic would seem to suggest that
in prder to meet competition from Japan and other coun-
tries, we should switch people from non-productive, paper-
pushing government jobs to productive, profit-making
employment in the private sector of the economy; the
savings, to the government in reduced payroll expenses
would result in a huge tax cut to farmers, workers and
businessmen; these savings could be invested in tools of
production, which would provide more jobs for more peo-
ple who will produce for all.
Or is that "too simplistic" a solution?
to the islands include the willow,
red bay, wax ,myrtle, holly,
strangler fig, maple, elderberry,
coco-plum, custard apple and
grounshed bush. It is a curious
fact that palms and cypress
trees are not usually found with-
in the borders of the Glades.
Dineen notes that birds in the
Glades have diminished some-
what through the years but there
are still thousands of herons,
ibises and egrets. These wading
birds are dependent upon a fall-
ing water level in the marsh to
concentrate the millions of small
fish, shrimp and crayfish that
comprise their food supply.
One of the rarest of North
American birds, the Everglade
kite, is also found in the area.
It is a hawk-like bird with a
sharp hooked bill for extracting
snails from their shell. It must
confine its living to fresh water
marshes to find food so the
range of the kite has been reduc-
ed drastically in recent years.
Says "Take It
Easy" On Trip
TALLAHASSEE Planning a
trip is an important step to hav-
ing a safe, relaxed vacation said
the Florida Highway Patrol this
Colonel Eldrige Beach, direc-
tor of the Patrol said, "Prepar-
ing for vacation travel and map-
ping out the safest route can re-
duce the chance of a breakdown
or an accident."
According to Beach, the first
and most important step is safe-
ty checking brakes, lights, fan
belts, radiator and radiator hos-
es, windshield wipers, jack and
tires including the spare.
Patrol records show serious,
crashes occur more frequently
in the afternoon and early eve-
ning hours than in the earlier
part of the day. Vacationing mo-
torists were urged to drive not
more than 400 or 500 miles .per
day, stopping for a brief rest
every 100 miles.
"Plan for emergencies by hav-
ing a first aid kit and flash light.
Also, check to see that your dri-

tion sticker are valid and leave
your travel schedule with a
neighbor or relative," concluded

One of the most unusual areas
in North America, the Ever-
glades is an important part of
the Sunshine State. While con-
stantly being bombarded with
threats to its existence through
the construction of levees, ca-
nals and even highways such as
the well known Alligator Alley,
the area will continue for many
years as we know it today. ,
I left the office last Friday evening just a little before -4
8:00 P.M. and started for home. As I started the car, I
decided to take a little run out by the new disposal plant
and see how far the work has progressed on that project.
As I was approaching the disposal plant on the Industrial
Road, there sat Chief of Police "Buck" Griffin in a folding
chair beside the road. As I drew closer, I saw a couple
of men out hoeing in a garden planted beside the site and
I stopped to see what was going on.
"Whatcha doing, Buck?" I asked.
"Working in my garden", Buck said all the while he
was still seated in that folding chair.
"Man", I thought, "This is my kind of gardening. I
could even have a fine, lush garden such as Buck had
growing if I could figure out how to work it while sitting
in a folding chair".
"How are you managing that?" I asked again.
"I've got my field hands at work", said Buck, waving
his hand at the figures hoeing, gathering produce and
puttering about the garden.
"Where did you find field hands in this day and time"
I had to ask.
"I've got the best field hands in the world", Buck
said. "They work on shares".
About that time the "field hands" began coming to-
ward the side of the road and I saw it was John Robert
Smith' and "Buck" Garrett. Bob Craig was further back
in the garden moving some posts.
With a look of admiration I remarked to Buck:
"Buck", I said, "you have to be the only man in the world
with an engineer and a Doctor of Pharmacy as field hands.
I admire your resourcefulness". This didn't even take
into consideration the fact that he had a national name in
college football and a college graduate-Bob Craig-mov-
ing fence posts.
John Robert said, "I do this for exercise", as if trot-
ing up and down his drug store all day long, six days a
week, wasn't exercise 'enough.
But, in truth, we have to report that our first impres-
sion of hired field hands was wrong. The two Bucks and
John Robert are co-operators of the small truck farm.
Bob was merely helping out father-in-law Buck Garrett
for an afternoon.
But still, Buck was sitting in that chair claims
he hasn't yet found a garden plow or a hoe that will work
right with his crutches.
Hal Boyle said in his column the other day that he"
is confused with the situation. Today's youth do' their
thing riding in a car and their work sitting at a desk and
still the sale of two-pants suits has fallen off to nearly
nothing. "Back in my day" Boyle said, "nearly every
suit came with two pair of pants and we were supposed
to be a 'stand up and go to it' generation".

"More excitement draws more fans
and more fans brings in more
money-pro football is a business".
Herring pointed out some dif-
ferences in college and pro foot-

game more exciting.
Herring said he thought the Fal-
cons, with whom he stays in close

season. He also expressed the
opinion that the many pro teams
in existence now have dilluted the
quality of the game by spreading
the available talent too thin.

J. Hall, Jr., 18, was a recent guest
of the Army when he spent a week
visiting the U. S. Army Selection
Center here. At the Center soldier-
candidates undergo physical exam-
inrations, mental aptitude tests and
extensive interviews with selected
career counselors to match his ap-
titudes and personal preferences'
with the over 300 jobopportunities
the Army has available. They also
observe, first hand, Army life and
use Army recreational facilities.
At the end of their stay, if quali-
fied, they are offered the school-
ing they want and hopefully, reach
the Army's goal of producing a
better satisfied man after enlist-
ment. While most candidates en-
list immediately and begin train-
ing, those who d6 not are returned
home under no obligation. Others
enlist under the Army's Delayed
Entry Program and enter active
service within 180 days.
