The question of who will
make inspection of new septic
tank, construction in the county
is still up in the air and unde-
cided,- after nearly a month of
toying to get the responsibility
in the- hands of someone who
will get the job done. -
At the present time, the coun-

Tuesday night's meeting of the

Ramsey Clark Naive
Former Attorney General John Mitchell said Ram-
sey Clark was "duped" by the North Vietnamese in his
recent trip there. Mitchell goes on to label Clark as
"naive". That's diplomatic talk for "stupid".
Clark made a big thing out of coming back to the
United States before he made his report about what bad
guys we 'were to continue bombing North Vietnam and
what sweiU guys the Viet Communists were in the treat-
ment of our prisoners.
Clark had a lot to sa, about the bombing of the dikes
which has become the battle cry of the left wingers. The
bpmbing of the dikes most be what it will take to bring
the North Viets to their knees, what with all the world
opinion they are busily stirring up against such a move.
The North Viets have cried to high heaven during
the papt month that the U. S. has bombed the dikes and
our parade of stars to' Hanoi have verified that the dikes
have been damaged and cry out about what a crime against
man and nature it would be if they were bombed. Do
see it? The bleeding hearts say with one breath that
dikes have been bombed and then weep all over the p
about how it would wipe out, the Vietnamese popular
if they' were bombed.
We see one of two things as being the truth. Na
ly: if bombing the dikes would indeed, ,inundate
nation of Vietnam inder water and drown millions of
people either (1) that's a lie or (2) the dikes have
been, bombed, since the nation, of North Vietnam is
parently alike an kicking.
Columnist William Buckley says we shouldd go al
and bomb the dikes. He offers the option that if
dikes are as vulnerable as the Vietnamese say they
it would be the more humane thing to do in the long
to destroy them and end this no-win war here and no
As for Ramsey Clark: aren't we lucky he isn't in
thority in our nation any more?
Stop That Noisy Muffler
Enforcement of Florida's new muffler law has start-
ed. The Florida Highway Patrol says. the law will be
enforced strictly,- and drivers with mufflers that aren't
reasonably quiet may be in trouble.
Mufflers are being added to the check-list at motor
vehicle inspection stations throughout the state. A safe-
ty sticker won't he issued unless a vehicle's muffler is
in good condition.
The new law is designed primarily to reduce noise
pollution. It is in the auto owners'interest to observe it
also to protect passengers from dangerous, perhaps fatal,
fumes. It is a good law even though it may cause m
drivers an inconvenience in getting -faulty mufflers
paired or replaced.
Rusted and coroded surfaces probably will give
most trouble for auto owners who feel their exhaust
tern is in fairly good shape. A large number of cai
expected to fail the initial inspections.
Once the public becomes fully acquainted with
new requirements, however, it is likely that exhaust
teams will be kept in better shape and everyone will b
fit T '
It. trns :ut there wa.'t much wrong with, the High-
Sland View drawbridge after all. An inspection two weeks
ago turned p the fact that the biggest problem is with
electrical fuses blowing and said fuses being located in
:such a place where it isn't just:.a matter of reaching up,
to put in a new one. ,
As ,A the state engineers pointed out, their only contact
with the bridge is through the tender's report which re-
corded outages ,through blown fuses,, but didn't list the
problems with changing the fuses. The engineers were
aware the bridge electrical system was blowing too many
fuses and had this item on their periodical routine main-
tenance sheet to try and find the cause.

monthly benefits social security
can pay. According to a recent sur-
vey, only one person in 25 gave
the correct answer to this ques-
lthe "Let's take a man 35 years old,
?lace with a wife and two young chil-
,tion dren and average earnings of
about $500 a month. If he became
disabled, and couldn't work any

the think he and his family would get
her from social security? Or.if he died,
not how much do you think his wife
and children would get? (Just a

The question was put to a samp-
head ling of people 18 and over across
the the nation. The correct answer is
are, about $400 a month, according to
run David Robinson, Social Security
run Field Representative for Gulf
ow. County. Effective with the Septem-
'au- ber 1972 increase this would be
close to $500 a month.
"But three out of four people
guessed the social security pay-
ments would be $350 a month or,
less," he said. "More than half
guessed $250 or less. One out of
four guessed $150 or less."

pany in objecting to the change of WJHG-TV from NBC

week with pepole voicing their own personal objections.
One group of teen agers called Friday evening and said
they had clipped out the piece and sent it to the televi-
One guy even called up at 7:30 one evening here at
the plant, cussing and raising sand because it meant the
end of his football watching. I should have .been a lit-
tie hot at that. Some people think we never close up shop
and go home.
One thing about operating a weekly newspaper; you
get all kinds of fringe benefits. Like last week for in-
stance. We have a subscriber up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama,
by the name of Mrs. Minnie Evans. Mrs. Evans is a for-
mer resident of Port St. Joe and we played with her boys
back in the "good old days". Mrs. Evans sent me a gal-
lon fruit jar of home-made vegetable soup she had can-
ned and put up for the winter. Mrs. Evans may be saving.

Praises be! I'm back in the fashion business.
An article in the paper the other day pointed out that
men's pants would be cut with full legs, have pleats and
take a narrow belt in the spring. That's perfectly all
right. I still have several pair with the wide legs, the
pleats down the front right smack dab in the middle.
of the fashion trend.
I won't be completely in vogue, however, since I have
a few pairs of pants with no pleats and cut on the newer
styles (to a point) and as long as they can be worn, I'll
wear them. 1

don't care how many of their people they get killed in the

Adult Education Fighting Illiteracy
"The demand for physical
common laborers. is diminish-
ing", James McInnis told the Ki-
wanis Club Tuesday, "and with
that diminishing demand comes
a need for more education to be
prepared for the more technical
jobs". McInnis, director of the
Gulf County Adult Institute,
which provides educational op-
portunities for those who missed
it earlier in life, says the state-
wide program is successfully do-
ing this job and at the same
time reducing the number of il-
literates, in the state of Florida
while the state population is ex-
panding by leaps and bounds.
In Gulf County, Mclnnis said
adults have accepted the pro-
gram as an effective means of
furthering education. "Over 200
adults have received high school
forest capitals, of the world, slash
and other conif rs have to be im-
ported and ca fully hursed, to
mna in Thot InPQm 1tv
diplomas in the past three
years", he said.
The adult education program
provides a curriculum from the
first grade through high school
as well as several specialized
courses in consumer education,
citizenship, math, and vocation-
McInnis reported. that there
are 5,274 adults in Gulf County
over 25 years of age. "Of these,
164 or 12.5% cannot read or
write", Mclnnis 'said. He also
said there are 496 adults in Gulf
County who have not advanced
beyond the fourth grade.
"Our purpose is to help these
and others, who want to better
their education", McInnis said.
