Jaycees Attack Problem
Area Jaycee chapters have put to words, in an offi-
cial protest, what many private citizens have been belly-
aching about for years the condition of the Highland
View drawbridge over the Gulf County Canal.
It has never been our misfortune-to be caught by
the; balky bridge, mal-functioning while in an open posi-
tion; for .more than a few minutes. However, many have
been stranded for an hour at a time, while the operator
tries repeatedly to close the bridge once he has it opened
for a boat to go through. Spme motorists have even been
forced to go back to Beacon Hill, through Overstreet to
Wewahitchka, then down to Port St. Joe when the bridge
would suffer one of its frequent spells.
We wouldn't go so far as to say the bridge should be
replaced, but, surely, it could be repaired where it would
be more dependable than it now is. The problem doesii't
lie from the fact that the Department of Transportation
isn't aware of the problem. They are bound to know of
thA situation since they maintain a repair crew at the
bridge almost constantly.
We're not an engineer ... know nothing about brid-
ges except that cars go over them and boats go under
them. But they are mechanical and there should be a
way to fix this particular mechanical bridge so it will
The Jaycees hit at the fact that the baky bridge can
hamper ambulance and fire calls. This hagactually hap-
pened. Luckily it didn't result in a death, but being caught
by a bridge one can't cross could result in death. It could
result in serious property loss. The Beaches and Port
-St. Joe depend too ,much upon each other to be faced with
the ever present possibility that the Highland View bridge
will decide it wants to stick at an inopportune moment.
The Jaycees' complaint is justified. The bridge needs
some expert attention before it claims 'somebody's life.
Don't hold your breath until it gets this needed attention
though. With the way this, part of Florida has been neg-
lected by DOT funds in the past few years, we don't pre-
dict any hasty action on their part to correct this problem
which has been with us for too long a while.
A Deserving Fellow
Change Senator George McGovern's name to Edmund
Muskie and remove' him from Washington, D. C., last
rThursday and place him on the front steps of the Man-
chester, 'New Hampshire, "Guardian" and you have a re-
play of the ruining of a presidential candidate.
Muskie's presidential hopes, began to hurtle down-
hill, rather than just gently slide, immediately after his
now famous crying jag on the Guardian's steps because he
felt untruths had been published about he and his wife.
Now Senator" MGovern, the self-proclaimed winner of
the first Democratic presidential' nomination ballot next
week cries "dirty pool", when some' of his California dele-
gates were removed from his camp. Don't look at the
fact that they may.have been wrongly put there in the first
place, just look at the fact that they have been taken away.
This is what McGovern would have us do.

Would you lock him in maxi-
mum security prison or send him
to a juvenile home? Under a
youth program now operative in
Florida and being carried out by
the Florida Division of Youth
Services, a Daytona Beach judge
ordered Pete taken to the Volu-
sia House, a converted church on
a quiet, palm shaded Daytona
Beach street. ,
Pete entered through an un-
locked, unguarded door to a
room about 50 feet long. A row
of double deck beds, each with
a .desk at its foot, lined one wall.
Some 20 boys were rapping in
groups of two or three. Others
were playing pool at one of the
two' tables. Some were busy at
A smiling young man put out
his hand and said, "We've been
expecting you. Take a seat
please." Six boys, plus a 27 year
old group leader formed about
him. They would determine if
Pete was redeemable and would
be permitted to stay.
"Talk to us, Pete. Tell us who
you are, what you have done.
We want the truth, man, no con,
we've been there ourselves."
Pete started with his first mis-
step at the age of six, then jump-
ed to eight and 16 year esca-
"Hold it, man," one boy shout-
ed. "We want the whole story.
Go back and tell it exactly like
it was." His tormentors yelled
at him question after question.
Pete's hands beat a tattoo on
his shaking knees. He was wet
with sweat and he was near
tears. "Sit up, man. Look us in
the eye. We want the whole story
and the truth."
Then suddenly the questions
stopped and .the boys started
yelling at him. "You've got a ly-
ing problem. You've got a show-
off problem. You're weak. Do
you really want help man?" a
black boy screamed. "Alright,
stand up and yell 'help!' Say I

We see on the TV where the United States Olympice
team is beginning to ask for contributions to send the
U.S. team to the next olympic games. Send in a donation
of five bucks and you get in return a fancy shoulder patch
to put on your tuxedo or dinner jacket to testify to the fact
that you gave. at least five bucks.
We also see in the papers where a man and wife team
is practicing up to represent the United States for pos-
sibly their last' time. They have been part of the U.S.
entry for the past 20 years or at least he has. The'man
(and I let his name get away from me) met his wife at

have a representative here from Port St. Joe on the U.S. f
olympic team. It would be hard to find someone to go
through the training.
When you consider we didn't have an athletet" enter-
ing the several contests featured during the past week,
you can easy see how we can miss having a representative
on the olympic team.
There will be a "Worm Fiddling" contest over about
Caryville on July 10 and we don't have a "Fiddler" there.
I understand "Fiddler" John Dickey wanted to enter, but
backed out when \he found out he had to draw his fiddle
bow across a stake driven in the ground rather than over
the strings of his singing fiddle. That's the closest we
came to having a representative at the "Worm Fiddling"
There were Gopher Races all over this part of the
Panhandle on July Fourth, but we drew a blank there,
too. The gophers ran too fast for Jimmy Costin to com-
pete with and too slow for "Speedy" Wages to waste his
time. Several went because they thought they got to
eat what they caught, only to be disappointed pin the fact
that it was a' race between gophers and gophers, not go-
pers against man like it was during the depression days. '
There was a watermelon seed spitting contest out in
Neosho, Missouri the worlds champion meet, no less--
but again we had no takers.
iOne thing we do excell in, though, is coffee drinkers
-the type which sets around the pot for an hour during
a 10 minute break, nursing a cup of that nasty stuff
through one story after another. We have our share of
that type of athlete and should the time ever come when
coffee drinking becomes organized for the fine art it must
be, we can field out team with no'trouble at all. In fact
they won't even need to go into a period of training. A -
visit to the drug stores and cafes will prove that they are
already in top notch shape and ready to meet all comers.
The majority of the Supreme Court has ruled that the
Constitution sets out, by virtue of a paragraph in the Bill
of Rights, that capital punishment is "cruel and unreason-
able punishment" for a person to have to bear and so it is
True. capital punishment has been banished by some
38 nations in the world today and maybe it has out-lived
its usefulness. In some cases we don't believe this to be
true, such as murder, rape, treason and kidnapping. Be-
fore kidnapping was a capital (and death) offense, it was
a common practice for children to be snatched. Since be-
coming a death offense, kidnapping is rare.
But getting back to the reasoning of the majority five;
using the wording in the Constitution as a mandate for out-
lawing the death penalty.
When the Constitution was written, Americans
hung their criminals (which is fatal) for committing capi-
tal crimes and some of these crimes aren't considered so
capital today, such as horse stealing, cattle rustling, etc.
Nevertheless, the early Americans practiced capital pun-
ishment. If the framers of the Bill of Rights had meant
it to prohibit capital punishment it would have so stated
or at least it would have been publicly interpreted as such
since it stands to reason there were criminals executed
during the life time of the authors, who were dead certain
what the Bill of Rights meant in connection with the rights
of Americans including criminals.
The majority five cast their vote as they did because
that was the way they personally believed not because
they interpreted the Constitution or Bill of Rights in this

Sunday while playing in the area of their home
on Gulf Street. The turtle, estimated to weigh
35 pounds was lumbering up the road when the
boys found him. Ordinarily found in water, the
soft shell was a good ways from any sizeable body

Superstition has always sur-
rounded the potato.
At first people refused to eat
them for fear they were poison.
Later potatoes were said to have
certain healing powers in addi-
tion to being a nutritious addition
to the diet.
People used to'carry potatoes in
their pockets to ward off rheuma-
tism and sciatica. A Texas folk
cure for burns and frostbite re-
commended scraped raw potato.
The Mississippi remedy for a black
eye was a raw potato poultrice.
In other countries, though, thj
potato had to be cooked to be ef-
fective. In Ireland, water from
boiled potatoes was recomfimended
for 'rubbing on aches, sprains and
broken. bones, In Newfoundland,
sliced baked potatoes were carried
around the neck in a stocking to
cure sore throat.
Although potatoes are seldom
used for healing anymore, they're
a frequent, addition to the menu.
The U. S. Department of Agricul-
ture says we average eating 122-
pounds per person yearly of this
USDA's Agricultural Marketing
Service. reports plentiful supplies
of fresh potatoes, frozen french
fries and instant mashed potatoes
now. So here is a potato recipe you
may want to try:
Mashed Potatoes Delightful
2 cups mashed potatoes, chilled
Melted butter or hot milk
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
r of return -
% cup evaporated milk, chilled
one-third cup grated cheese
Salt and pepper '
Beat potatoes with just enough
butter or hot milk',to make them
light. Stir in mustard, and pile in-
to buttered casserole dish. Whip
evaporated milk until stiff. Stir
in grated cheese with salt and pep-
per to taste. Spread cream over
-potatoes and bak..nm moderate

(. M. Ward Speaking at Assembly
Radio Evangelist C. M. Ward j Church, Madison Street, according a.m.
will be guest speaker Sunday, July to the Rev. Aaron H. Gillman, pas- The Rev. Ward is now in his 18th
9 at Oak Grove Assembly of Gqd tor. The service will begin at 9:45 year as speaker for '"Revivaltime",
official international radio broad-
cast of the Assemblies of God. "Re.-
vivaltime" is released weekly over
mraore than 670 independent and
foreign stations and originates
fr.rm Springfield, Mo.
Worldwide impact and accept-
ance of Ward's preaching is at-
tributed to his relevent applica-
__ tion of the Bible to today's needs.
r-The "Revivaltime" speaker is
kept attuned to the thought pat-
terns and the varied problems of
his vast audience by traveling
more than 200,000 miles each year
_and through extensive reading.
__ ~The radio evangelist says, "Re-
-- ,--- -search in depth is an absolute
must for the modern pulpit."
Ministering to prisoners and ser-
vicemen is of special concern to
C. M. Ward. 'The radio preacher
frequently conducts evangelistic
campaigns at penal institutions,
organized by the inmates them-
selves. And for the servicemen who
do not have access to a regular re-
lease of "Revivaltime", tapes of
the broadcasts are sent free of

The first annual Jaycee-spon-

nament was a big success, ac-
cording to past'Jaycee president,
Milo Smith. '
As a result of the tournament
the Jaycees were able to present
to the Dixie Youth organization
$941.00 as a result of the all day
fish fry and baseball event. The
money went to defray some un-
usually large expenses this year
as the program expanded to in-
clude a program for boys over
13 years of age.
As usual, the Jaycees had a
lot of help from local business
and organization in their success-
ful project. The Jaycees offered
their appreciation to St. Joe Ice
