The Star begins publication of
a new and interesting column in
this week's issue. -
The column, written by Dr.
Bob Thornton, a professor at the
University of West Florida in
Pensacola, deals with education
and its role in our society.
Thornton's column is publish-
ed ip several Northwest Florida
newspapers and, as he says, "is
designed to inform and create
interest in the education sys-
tem and not push my ideas on
how the thing should be run off
on the public".

Getting A Little Help
The communities along U. S. 98 have been making
squeaks in the wind for the past few years wanting the
scenic highway four-laned. But, as usual with requests
from the "Lost Elbow" section of Florida, these requests
are paid scant attention .. even to the point of being
Panama City seems, to have pretty fair success with
their requests, what with their sizeable vote in Bay County,
but even Panama City suffers from the woes of the for-
gotten to some extent. Panama City hasn't been much
help in this project though, since they are scheduled for
four-laning from Panama City to Destin within the next
five to six years, and the highway portion which lies in
the Panama City area is already being four-laned. 'So,
they are getting what they want, and there's not much
need for them to do any high-powered lobbying.
We received a little help in stressing the need of the
project last week, when the Tallahassee Democrat came
out editorially in favor of four-laning the highway from
Destin to Perry, even though 98 doesn't go through Tal-
The Democrat recognized the fact that the highway
has no place in future plans for four-laning from Panama

Fire Chief L. C. Lehmann says,
"Many hospitals and especially

We, of course, sitting astride Highway 98, think dif-
ferently. We look with disbelief at DOT plans to four-
lane U. S. 9b--70 miles north of' here-even though it
runs almost side by side with Interstate 10. The DOT
says the traffic count will make the two four-lane roads
We contend they will be necessary only because there
is one four-lane road there to attract the traffic. If High-
way 98 were four-laned, the traffic would be funneled
along the coast because the tourists who travel into Flor-
id would like to see the water and beach scenery. As it
is, they go by the four-lane routes marked on the map and
get into congested traffic.
The DOT admits there is enough traffic coming into
Florida from the West to warrant two four-lane arteries.
If one of these arteries were placed along 98 we would
attract the necessary traffic to make it feasible. As it
is, we have too much for the out-dated twisting two-lanes
we now have, but not enough for four.

It is a cliche but nevertheless
true, that we are confronted
with a world which is kaleidos-
copically changing-a world with
an almost frightening accelera-
tion in scientific and technologi-
cal change. Our society and its
schools have been tremendously
affected by these changes. Al-
though the phenomenon known
as "cultural lag" persists, in the
final analysis there is a signifi-
cant relationship between what
a society does and thinks and the
role it expects its schools to as-
Therefore in our educational
system we must expect a consid-
able amount of confusion since
there are those who desire to
ignore change and return the
schools to the status quo ante;
people who would preserve the
status quo; and others who feel
that since the world is changing
so rapidly our schools should be
in the vanguard, hastening
The size of our enterprise in
education also contributes to our
confusion. For example, we have
more than 31,000 secondary
schools enrolling more than 17,-
000,000 students taught by more
than 796,000 teachers. If we ex-
amine the statistics for elemen-
tary schools our figures would
be quadrupled. Any enterprise
with so many people involved
must reflect a number of prob-
lems faced by the old woman
who lived in a shoe, who had so
many problems she didn't know
what to do. However, the solu-
tion is not the simple one of
whipping them all 'round and
sending them to bed.
It will be the purpose of this
column to point out the signifi-
cant aspects of the development
of the American ideal of uni-
versal education with its accom-
panying problems-economic, po-
litical, social and professional;
no effort will be given to map-
ping with total certainty the fu-
ture of this institution, as the
author hazards to predict
that no one alive today is know-
ledgeable enough to tell what
our school system will resemble
by 2,000 A.D.
Although this author will try
to be objective and avoid taking
sides on issues that have varying
interpretations, which affect not
only those of us in Gulf County,
but in Florida and the Nation as
a whole, this column is intended
to represent both a Christian and
a, conservative approach to edu-
cation. Formal education is un-
derstood to be but a means to
aid man in achievement of his
temporal and ultimate life goals.

respond to any reader's questions
concerning education. Please

I remember way back when I was a boy about the
most depreciating thing you could say about a boy or man
was that he wore pink underwear. Several people wore
silk underwear-if they were rich-and this was consid-
ered a luxury; but pink underwear not even the rich
wore pink underwear unless they wanted their manhood
Pink was strictly for girls and sissies.
This is by way of explaining away my pink under-
wear. Just in case I happen to fall deathly ill on the street
someday soon or get mangled up in an automobile acci-
dent and have my underwear exposed for all the world
to see; if you are one of those who see my pink underwear
don't you arch an eyebrow'and proclaim, "Well, I swan,
ole Wes is a sissy-he wears pink underwear".
Let me tell you how that underwear got pink. I
sure didn't buy it that color. It was common old white -
Hanes shorts and undershirts when it was purchased.
About the time I bought a new supply of underwear,
daughter, Carol, also bought a new pair of blue jeans. Her
jeans got dirty about the time several suits of my under-
wear got dirty and she tossed them both in the washing
machine at the same time. The result, pink underwear.
In this era of dressing like a peacock I figured a fellow
could go ahead and wear his new underwear-even if it
was pink-without too much tongue-wagging. It seemed
a pity to throw away several pair of brand new underwear
just because they accidentally took on a pink hue and be-
cause memory of days of yore made it mandatory that a
boy or man who didn't wish to be labeled "sissy", stayed
away from the pink unmentionables.
I saw this little blurb in brother Will's Twin City News
up in Chattahoochee last week, and thought you might en-
"We need some status quo. When you read about all
the things happening in the world and all the new things
being invented, it makes you want to heave a big sigh and
wonder "what next".
"I say we've got enough troubles without politicians
looking up new ones and enough gadgets to last us the
rest of our lives. We have enough new medicine to cure
just about everything and enough bombs and missiles to
wipe us all out just in case we aren't able to kill everybody
"What we need right now is some status quo. We
certainly don't need anything new to worry about. We've
got nut grass, love bugs, pollution, pornography, TV re-w
runs, Walter Cronkite and Search for Tomorrow, and after
all that, who needs anything new?
"We need more people like the fellow who volunteered
to sit atop a flagpole for $25 a day until the Atlanta
Braves won nine games in a row, which would probably
be a pretty long sit. But even that's not too good a deal
when you figure that the legislature sits in nice comfort-
able chairs for $150 a day and accomplishes about the
The kind of help you can pick up these days is some-
thing else. I had some volunteer help the other day in
working my tomato patch and everyone knows volunteer
help is the worst kind yet.
I have worried those tomatoes along, watering, weed-
ing, fertilizing, watering, staking, coaxing, until they are
now good size and beginning to put on some sizeable
green tomatoes. While there is a pretty good crop, we
certainly don't have any to waste.
Grandsons Richard and Steven were "helping" me
the other night. I was busily setting up the sprinkler
when Steven came wobbling over with a "Papaw, here'sf
two termallows!" The little bugger had picked two to-
matoes off my prize "patio" variety.
But, he was helping for free, so what can you say?

From one so good as you;
You' are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be.
As long as life and memory last we will remember thee.
We.miss.you, now, our hearts are sore
