The office of Attorney Gener-

along with six other failed to

another office. In Pate's case, he

Pate, through his attorney, fil-
ed, affidavits that he filed his
letter of resignation with the
City on June 24 and a confirm-
ing letter was sent by the City
to the Secretary of State on June
30, but it was claimed the notice
of resignation was never receiv-
ed by the State.
Pate's affidavit pointed out
that he verbally resigned in mid-
May and by writing on June 24.
Daniel Dearing, chief trial
counsel in the attorney gener-
al's office said he could not make
a judgment on whether Pate
was in compliance or not, so his
case is included in the group be-
fore the Supreme Court.
A decision is expected shortly
on whether the seven, including
Pate, can continue to pursue the
elected offices they seek.

Of all the encouraging signs of our times, certainly
the best is the "back to God" movenient among the youth
of the world. The mammoth "Explo 72" rally in Dallas
(and televised in this area last week) was just one of the
outside manifestations of a strong return to Christianity
and morality, after drifting so far in the opposite direc-
It is good news when "Amazing Grace", a gospel
song. first published nearly 200 years ago should now
become one of the most popular songs in Europe as well as
in America. "The Baptist World" reports that a bag-
pipe version of the old favorite was recorded by the band
of the Royal Scots Dragoon .Guards, a British regiment
stationed in West Germany and is now the number one hit
song on the Continent.
No less amazing than the present popularity of
"Amazing Grace" is the story of its 'author, Rev. John
Newton of London and Olney, England. Newton, born
in 1725, the son of a ship's master, went to sea as an ap-
prentice seaman at the age of 11. For six years he sailed
the seas between the British Isles and the Mediterranean,
and by the time he was 17 he had already gained the repu-
: station of a swaggering, tough, blasphemous sailor.
r Shanghaied and impressed into the British Navy in
1744, Newton, because of his seaworthy experience, was
quickly promoted to-the rank of midshipman. But just as
quickly the brash young man jumped ship, and for this
he was publicly flogged and degraded. Boarding a ship

crat religiously religiously, that is, until he starts writ-

An incident happened to us the other day, to make
us realize that we were the loser by not knowing what
editor Johnson was talking about in those special columns.
To most of us, a tree is just a tree, unless we happen

several kinds of pines. When you begin to learn the
difference, you begin to appreciate them more. To go a
step further, we appreciate them far more when there's
not enough of them o'n hand to keep our paper mill running.

sailing for Africa, Newton next became a slave dealer,
trafficking in the selling of human flesh. In 1747 he went
back to sea, this time as captain of one of the notorious
slave ships. But in 1748, in the midst of a great storm
at sea, John Newton surrendered his soul to God.
Returning to England, he arduously studied Greek,
Hebrew, and the scriptures. It was not long before he
was invited to preach in the town of Olney, Buckingham-
shire; although it wps not until the year 1764 that he was
ordained as a full-fledged minister. Soon after that the
famous poet, William Cowper, took up residence in Olney.
He and John Newton became fast friends. It is undoubt-
edly through Cowper's influence and tutelage that New-
ton quickly learned the art of rhyme and rhythm and
began to compose some of the most beautiful hymns
In 1779 the works of John Newton were published,
entitled "Olney Hymns", and by 1880 they were being
sung in America. In a modern hymnal in wide use in
the churches of America, no less than seven of John
Newton's hymns appear; and among them, "Amazing
Grace," whose verses reflect John Newton's own experi-
ences as one who had experienced the cesspools of human
society 200 years ago, and having been saved by grace.

beloved hymns (Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken),

It is not infrequent that our
administrator captures the head-
lines in personal attacks against
politicians, claiming that the pol-
iticians are selling the schools
down the river with inadequate
funding or interference with aca-
demic freedom. Since we have
in our heart a special place for
the maintenance and continu-
ance of our schools, it is the pub-
lic school administrator who di-
rects hornets towards Tallahas-
see. The administrator's plea is
that existing lines of communi-
cation with the legislature are
adequate, or that the legislature
does not have an ear to hear the
cries of the schools. So it is the
call of duty and citizenship that
leads to a bitter contest for the
will of the people's realization
that we are making war upon
In a recent interview, Sen.
, John Broxson pointed 'to the
need and demand of the voters:
We (legislators and educators)

agreement rather than attack
one another in areas of disagree-
ment. The people want positive
results not endless arguments. I
am continuing my graduate edu-
cation in school administration,
and I see educators becoming
more acquainted with the reali-
ties of the will of the people,
and the will of the people is
that we offer our children a bet-
ter and better education, but at
the same time lessen the finan-
cial burden on them as taxpay-
ers. I think we will make more
progress in this direction by a
cooperative effort rather than
making unfounded accusations.

recently, someone remarked, "Those pines will begin to
grow larger now and make this a much prettier place
than it is already." Jim McNeill, who has more than a
nodding acquaintance with pines remarked, "Those par-
ticular pines won't grow very fast, because they are long

for some reason or other". He then pointed to another
stand and remarked, "Now those are slash pines, and

tion. Thus, the effective public
school administrator issues and
implements his administration
only with adjustments which will
insure his survival, the survival
of his administrative structure
and workable continuity of his
previous administrative deci-
sions. It may be rightfully said
that every citizen participates in
school administration, or their
reaction is contemplated before
any notable administrative deci-
sion is made.
From time to time the admin-
istrator has to recognize he can-
not please all the people all the
time. If his decisions can be rea-
sonably expected to bring down
upon his administration political
hornetss', he pleads to all non-
politicians a supposed cardinal
rule of the universe, "let us
keep politics out of education."
We have dismissed this absurdity
in previous columns. In response
to any groups the public school
administrator may claim that his
decision rests on his technical
competence; for example, "if
you knew what I knew, and of
course you don't because you are
not trained in education, you
would know why I am making
this decision and agree with it.
I warn you that if you argue with

REV. J. C. ODUM, Pastor
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
The big thing going on these days is the rage over the
ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture to cure all ills.
To hear the raves over the values of acupuncture, you'd
think it was better than Black Draught, Syrup Pepsin and
honey and molasses all rolled into one ball.
There's even acupuncture clinics in the United States
now, where patients may go and have themselves cut on
while they are lulled into an unfeeling state with. a long
needle stuck in their arm, leg or other parts of the ana-
tomy. Acupuncture may work. It may do all the things
claimed. It may serve the same purpose as an anes-
thetic while one is having various sorts of surgery.
The practice of acupuncture is for 'somebody else as
far as I am concerned. I really believe it would take more
anesthetic to put me in a state to where I would allow that
long needle to be pushed into my carcas than it would to
put me under enough to do the surgery the acupuncture
was intended to prepare me for. The thought of all those
needles leaves me cold and not in the least anxious to ex-
I know the Chinsee have used the method for
over 2,000 years, so it's tried and tested. I can't forget,
however, how those Chinese have died like flies over the
past centuries with the panacea of acupuncture at their
disposal while we Americans are the healthiest people on
Earth while having to depend on such primitive methods
as wonder drugs, ether, sodium pentathol and the skilled
hands of a trained surgeon.
I've been "acupunctured" by a needle filled with won-
der drugs many times over the past years, in the hospital
and the doctor's office and that's the closest to the an-
cient Chinese method of treatment I ever want to get.
If any of you see Jimmy Greer in the next few days,
ask him if these are dog days. Jimmy used to keep -me
informed on this important matter, but I haven't seen
him lately to get the official word from Jimmy and his
Grier's Almanac (no kin).
Sometimes we have to wonder what special qualifi-
cations it takes to run a government agency. The posi-
tion of the City of Port St. Joe today is one prime exam-
ple of a cat chasing his tail in circles.
The City was told about three years ago to upgrade
its sewage disposal system so that its effluent into St.
Joseph's Bay would meet certain requirements set out by
a government agency. The City was told what to build,
how to build and where to dump the residue. They were
even required to submit plans of the facility to the gov-
ernment agency for their approval.
So the City hired engineers, who drew plans, which
were approved by the government agency as a workable
system and meeting the required standards. So, the
City routinely applied to the Corps of Engineers to ap-
prove their method of introducing their effluent into the
bay, after being treated to 90% pure water. The Corps,
again routinely, sent out notices for anyone to object who
wished to. And who objected? That's right! The gov-
ernment agency who had told the City what to do and
how to do it. That's real organization!

Then they lowered the boom.
Somebody had to dig up the fact
that he was ill several years ago.
He visited a doctor and spent
some time in the hospital. After
experiencing shock treatments
he was completely recovered and
he developed a reputation of be-
ing a fine senator who was real-
ly going places.
Only thing going against Ea-
gleton was that his illness was
in the mental category. Not in-
sane, nor retarded, just suffer-
ing from overwork and mental
depression. It was an .illness,
simple and pure. And he was
cured of it just as if he recovered
from a gall bladder disorder.
But people refuse to look upon
a mental disorder in the same
Then the columnist Jack An-
derson had to get into the act
and state he had been arrested
for drunken driving. His apology
on television later hardly served
to clear this point up, although

of the voters, was an unpopular

I cannot help but feel sorry
for Senator Tom Eagleton.
Seems to me that a fine young
man who had the misfortune of
being ill several years ago was
shunted aside by politicians who
were afraid to stand behind him
when a crisis, blown out of pro-
portion, suddenly developed.
Tom who? Tom Eagleton,
that's who, brother.
During the Democratic Con-
vention in Miami Beach it was
a foregone conclusion that Sen-
ator George McGovern would be
the .standard bearer for his par-
ty. Major part of the speculation
focused on his running mate.
Who would it be?
Senator Ted Kennedy had first
crack at the slot, but he turned
it down. Florida's governor Reu-
bin Askew also had an offer and
he refused. Then the unknown
senator from Missouri, Tom Ea-
gleton, was selected and he was
so little known that even the
CBS commentator Walter Cron-
kite mis-pronounced his. name.
Even Senator Eagleton called
himself "Tom Who". That was a

an altar decorated with a bridal
arch and a soft arch of candles.
On each side of the arch were
white colonial urns holding large

Flowers that decorate your Flor-
ida garden and can be cut for in-
terior use, offer a double delight.
Not only do they color ypur exter-
ior environment, but they can and
should be used more extensively to
brighten the indoors, where we
spend 80 percent of our time.
Cut-flowers can be used as fresh
bouquets-many lasting a week or
more--or as more permanent dried
Summer annuals which are ex-
cellent for use as cut flowers are
marigolds, cosmos, zinnias, coreop-
sis and the magnificent Gloriosa
daisy, the hybrid version of black-
eyed susans. Of course, many oth-
er summer blooming flowers can
be used. For example, celosia,
globe amaranth, tithonia and many
wild flowers. During the cooler
fall and spring months the selec-
tion of suitable cut flowers is
much greater. Ageratum, snapdra-
gons, calendulas, mums, dianthus
species, sweet peas, nasturtiums
and pansies greatly enlarge the
list of available cut flowers.
Many of the flowers we 'have
mentioned can also be used in
For hundreds of years, gardeners
have preserved flowers by drying
and used these for permanent in-
terior decorations. The so-called'
"everlastings" like statice and
strawflower have been most popu-
lar but many additional annuals
can be used. Blossoms are usually
cut when their color is at its peak,
leaves removed and bound togeth-
er in bunches for drying. The
flowers are hung upside down in
a dark, dry place for several weeks.
Flowers other than "everlastings"
have been air-dried or dried by
burying in materials such as sand
and borax. These methods are suc-
cessful for, certain flowers but un-
dependable for others. More re-
cently, a drying agent called silica
gel, has been used. This compound
has the capacity to absorb large
quantities of moisture and is used
to quickly dehydrate cut flowers.
Flaw v minus leaves are buried
in the gel in a closed container
and left for about a week. The gel
must be stored in an air-tight con-
tainer or it will absorb moisture
from the air and lose its effective-
ness. Flowers which can be dried
in this manner include: ageratum,
calendula, China aster, daisies, dah-
scissors by the hostess so they
could assist the honoree in mak-
ing the rice bags for her wedding.

luck and happiness for Miss Colde-

I am taking this means of introducing myself, my wife Emmalyn, and our children,
Celia, Cynthia, and Glenn. Our home is at 4115 West 17th Street, Panama City.
My first message to the people of Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson and Wash-
ington Counties is to express my appreciation for the privilege of seeking election
as one of your Circuit Judges.
Twenty-three years of experience in the law have pperared me, I sincerely believe,
to become one of the Judges of the Circuit Court, the highest trial court in our ju-
After you have studied my background and qualifications, I will greatly appreciate
your active support of my candidacy, and your vote in this important campaign.
