Tuesday was the day Sheriff Harrison was to make his
report and he said he could find no argument with Odom's ..
character. "I've checked him out and he has absolutely no
marks against him. I could endorse him whole-heartedly
from a standpoint of good character', said Harrison, "but
I'm hesitant to give the approval for someone to.carry a
concealed weapon without proper training in handling the -
weapon, when it is mandatory that my officers have this
training before they can carry-weapons."
Sheriff Harrison's weapons caused the Commission to
-pause and consider the matter further,r with chairman
Billy Branch pointing out that since the county has a
procedure to secure the weapon's permit; lie felt one
should be issued if the applicant meets the standards set
out by the county ordinance asOdom did, "Or we should
tell him why we won't issue the permit"', Branch pointed '
out.
Commissioner Everett Owens then made a motion the IK .
permitbe granted with the Sheriff's stipulation included as
a requirement-that ,is, that Odom be required to take i
training in weapons handling. Branchthen had to vacate i
his chairman's seat to second the motion and on a vote he

Money then said it wouldn't be so bad if Odom had -
received training in handling a weapon and Branch said
this requirement was included in the motion.
Because of this confusion with the motion, the Board
went through the entire procedure again, but the results ..
were the same: Branch and Owens voted in favor ande o e

Gulf Pines

Purchases Land for Doctor Complex


Gulf Pines Hospital announced this
week that they have purchased an acre of
land from George G. Tapper for the purpose
of constructing a four-doctor medical arts
center. -
The new office coimplex will provide
multi-specialty services from a single
location and promises''to be "state-of-the-
art" in every respet, according to Gulf
Pines administrator,'Dave Odum.
Excavation of the land should com-
mence in two to three weeks, with a
projected grand opening of the new center
on or about June 1 of this year. The offices
will be located at the corner of Garrison
Avenue and 22nd Street, near the area
presently being developed for residential
housing.
Concurrent with the construction of the
new medical arts center, Gulf Pines
Hospital is undergoing a major face-lift. A
new roof was the first in a series of major
renovations that are planned through


spring. A lighted sign now faces highway 98
and the exterior is being prepared for
painting early next week. The interior
cosmetics will"include lowering the ceiling,
painting, papering, and carpeting.
Upgrading the facility also includes an
upgrading of the equipment and services
offered. Since its acquisition by Health Care
management Corporation of Columbus,
Georgia, the hospital has upgraded its X-ray
services, respiratory therapy services,
in-patient pharmacy services and labora-
tory services.
The hospital's physician recruitment
program is producing excellent results. Two
internists and a pediatrician are signed and
it is expected that contracts will be finalized
on a general surgeon and a family
practitioner within tw0'to six weeks. Other
physicians will be added as required.
tOdum says he is pleased with the new
corporate management at Gulf Pines and: is
excited about the commitment to providing
hometown care at its best.

Scholarship Fund
The Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club presented a check
for $1,000 to Gulf Coast Community College this week,
as a payment on a $10,000 perpetual scholarship fund
they, are building at the college. The funds were
realized from Kiwanis projects, including the Junior


Miss Pageant which was presented in January. The
payment Monday increased the Kiwanis scholarship
fund to $4,000, plus $600 in earned interest. The
scholarship fund is part of a $9 million scholarship

"It doesn't bother me to hurt or
kill a woman or child", an apparently
cdazed itinerant kept telling Mrs.
John Reeves over and over again
Tuesday afternoon of last week.
The drifter, Robert Lee Jackson,
39, of Atlanta, Ga., walked into the
Reeves refinishing shop on Highway
98, and picked up a pocket knife lying
on a table, placed it against Mrs.
Reeves' throat and said he wanted
money. For nearly an hour, Jackson
remained in the building, threatening
with the knife, asking for money and
talking about how mean he was. Mrs.
Pat Haney, and her five-year-old
daughter were also in the building
visiting Mrs. Haney's 15-year-old son,
who worked after school in the
refinishing shop. Jackson's threat was
made against everyone in the build-
ing, but the knife was held only on
Mrs. Reeves.
Eventually, after the conversa-
tion drifted to religion and Mrs. Haney
offered to pray for Jackson, he agreed
to leave with them, again threatening
to come back and finish what he
started to do if they went to the police.
"I'll be back if you tell police",
Jackson threatened.
Mrs. Reeves then went to the St.


Paper Company, picking up her
husband from work and came back to
the refinishing shop. As they were
about to enter the building, Jackson
showed up again. This time, Reeves
picked up a pipe and backed Jackson
into a corner with it and held him
there until the police arrived.
Today, the Reeves say they are
frightened because of what happened
afterwards.
Officer James McGee arrested
Jackson and took him to the Gulf
County jail, then returned to the Port
St. Joe Police Department to write up
charges, citing Jackson for assault
with a deadly weapon, attempted
murder and kidnapping. Just as
McGee started to fill out the com-
plaint, a call from the Sheriff's
Department said Jackson was at-
tempting to hang himself.
Jackson was then transferred to
the psychiatric ward of Bay Medical
Center on a charge of drunkeness and
a need for protective custody. Jackson
was released after six days and could
be held no longer by law. The hospital
had called the Gulf County Sheriff's
office to see if there were any charges
against Jackson and were told there
were none. So, Jackson was released.


Sheriff Al Harrison said the
hospital talked to him and he knew
nothing of charges pending against
Jackson. "His release was a combina-
tion of errors", Harrison said.
Port St. Joe Police Chief Bob
Maige said officer McGee held up on
filing the complaint for a few days
because he was sent to the hospital.
"They require a round-the-clock
guard on someone who has charges
placed against them", Maige said,
"and we just don't have the manpow-
er to provide such a guard and McGee
knew that. However, he should~have
gone ahead and filed the charges later
and I might should have followed
through and seen that the charges
were filed".
Sheriff Harrison said his staff
couldn't furnish the full time guard
either, allowing Jackson to go to the
hospital with the lesser charge placed
against him.
The Reeves are disturbed because
of the threat made by Jackson, but
both chief Maige and Sheriff Harrison
feel Jackson is gone from this area.
Maige said the full charges were
filed against Jackson and an alert sent
out on the law enforcement net.

A hearing in Apalachicola
tonight will go a long way toward
d deciding what is going to happen to
the Apalachicola River from the
Brothers River north to the Cal-
houn County line.
You say, "What's that going to
mean to me?"
There are very few people-
men especially-in Gulf County
who don't like to wet a line every
once in a while. The portion of the
Apalachicola River to be discussed
is perhaps one of the most popular
bodies of water around for Gulf
County's fresh water fishermen, so
the hearing could, mean an awful
lot to the people of Gulf County.
We have no forward informa-
tion or inclination that the North-
west Florida Water Management
District is planning anything but
protective measures for the river.
-We have heard no rumors that their
intentions are anything else but
helpful.
Neither have we had any
..advance information, factual or
o--6therwise, that the agency is going
r to particularly protect therights of
Sthe sports fishermen in this issue.
We realize the sports fishermen
feel the meeting tonight will be the
first of several moves to limit or
control barge traffic on the river.
The fishermen have been opposing

Fisheries Commission here in
Florida.
We think past performances by
other government agencies who
seemed to have the rights of the
sportsman at heart would be ample
cause for sportsmen to be in
attendance and be recognized at
the meeting tonight.
Just for insurance, you might
say.
As you know, the NFWMD has
purchased that portion of the river
banks we described and they are
charged with protecting the river
and its watershed. Other agencies
in the past have construed this to
mean there will be no more camps
on the river and those which are
already there must be removed
within just a few short years. It's
still a touchy situation whether or
not hunters or fishermen can get
out on the banks of the river in
other areas controlled by state
interests:
We don't wish to cast doubt
that the NFWMD will do anything
except pass reasonable rules for
the river, but we still feel it might
be a good idea for people with
special interests toward the river
to be there.

commend that all the jars of food
and juice which were found to
contain glass fragments be saved
and the person who put them there
be made to eat the food when he or
she is located.


Out of Favor
The election in the Philippines
is over, but apparently it is far
from forgotten.
Ferdinand Marcos might have
engineered the outcome to such an
extent where he might very well
lose by acclamation of the people,
even though the count by his people
says he won.
It is hardly any secret that the
outcome of the election was
manipulated, with probably more
than a little manipulation going on
from both sides of the question.
One thing-seems to be for sure;
regardless of which of the candi-
dates gets to sit in the presidential
palace in the months to come, the
United States lost. Whatever credi-
bility or influence our nation had in
the Philippines seems to have been
deftly maneuvered out of favor.

Messing with the

Buddy Wiggleton, Larry
Ridinger and myself for sure
had gathered up on the big
hill behind Everite's Lake to
watch Larry "take off." It
seems like there were one or
two others. I believe that
Jim Bob Harris must have

you just naturally figured
Jim Bob was in the middle of
it somewhere. Besides you
needed a guy like Jim Bob at
a time like this 'cause when
it's all over and somebody
gets half-killed, well, you
need someone to blame it all
on. You know what I mean?
The "grown-ups" are going
to want to know how this


happened! Heck, everyone
for miles around knew that if
something "from way out in

Bob would be found right
near. the heart of it.
We stood silently, looking
down that small trail to the
spillway between the lake
and the ravine, then we fol-

Letters to Ed.:

Law Dept.

Did Well
Dear Sir:
I would like to write to
express my appreciation to
the Sheriff's Department of
Gulf County and especially to
Deputy Tom Godwin.
For the last 21 years, I
have been a part-time resi-
dent of Gulf County and have
learned to really love the
people and the area. I own a
cabin on "Our Town" road on
Dead Lakes north of Wewa-
hitchka.
I recently had a boat and
motor stolen from the land-
ing on the lake. I did not know
it until this past Sunday.
Upon learning about it, I
reported it to the Gulf County
Sheriff's Office and Mr. Tom
Godwin investigated. Mr.
Godwin spent a considerable
amount of time with me
Sunday afternoon looking for
the boat and talking with
people who he felt might
know something about it.
During this time, it was very
evident to me that Deputy
Godwin was a true profes-
sional who knew what he was
doing.
My boat was recovered the
next day: 'I am totally
convinced that without the
effort that Deputy Godwin
put into the investigation that
I would have never seen my
boat again. I deeply appre-
ciate the courtesy shown .me
by Deputy Godwin and the
"over and above effort" that
he put forth.
I know that it is very easy
to criticize our law enforce-
ment people and not to
recognize their everyday ef-
forts in the pursuit of their
duties. I would just like the
people of Gulf County to
know that they are .truly
fortunate to have the She-
riff's Department they have.
By virtue of this letter, I
would like to express my
appreciation for their assist-
ance.
Sincerely,
J. Foy Covington, Jr.


Fast Foods Dispensed In 1940's Were Considera


IT'S GETTING SO a person can
get anything he happens to want to eat
at a moment's notice almost any-
where you might want to stop.
It was a long time, there, before
you could get any of this now-famous
"fast food" anywhere but in a
metropolitan area. Now, us smaller
towns are becoming the target of the
instant hamburger purveyors, the
pizza parlors and the' fried chicken
havens.
Even here in Port St. Joe we've
experienced some of the fast food
emprdsarios invading our normally
staid streets and they are beginning to
multiply on Highway 98. In other
places, the fast food palaces have
been like a couple of rabbits. Today,
there are two. Tomorrow, they are
everywhere.
If Port St. Joe has this sort of
reaction to the many franchise
restaurants as other places, cooking
at home might go out of style.
I.hope it doesn't get to that point
at my house, because I still like to
park my feet under Frenchie's table
and enjoy the victuals she is good at
whipping up.
Our kitchen isn't all that fast, but

I SHAD

SPHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




Bad Dreams
There has never been anyone who could satisfac-
torily explain the absurdity of dreams to me.
I have often wondered why I, and many other peo-
ple I have talked to, have such absurd, unexplainable
dreams. I'm talking about dreams of things that have
never crossed my mind. I have even had dreams of
things that I have never heard of or know anything
about. Explain that to me, please.
I well remember the first night I had a dream in
technicolor. It was years ago (way before I was mar-
ried, thank goodness) and in the dream I had a data
with a darling, lovely girl. We went to a movie.
As I recall, I looked at her as we entered the
theater and thought how lucky I was to be out with such
a beautiful, sweet girl. She had light blond hair, rosy
cheeks, a slight touch of eye makeup that made her
bright, beautiful eyes stand out to match her white and
even teeth.
She was a heart-throb!
We had a wonderful time during the show. There
was a little hand-holding, some soft, whispered conver-
sation about the movie and, later in the evening, we
shared a bag of popcorn and a coke.
As we left the theater and were in the lobby area, I
noticed everyone looking at us. Thinking they were ad-
miring my beautiful date, I turned to compliment her
on her appearance. I was shocked when I saw her!
What was once a beautiful girl was now a wild and ugly
witch. She was fat andad bright red hair that stood
out in every direction. Her cheeks that once had a
pinkish blush were now fire-engine red with rouge. Her
lips were fat, puckered and blood-red, her arms ex-
tended and she was reaching for me. And she was
laughing: a wild, hysterical high-pitched laugh that I
shall never forget.
I was still running when I awoke. Surely I would
have died if she had caught me.
I have another dream that reoccurs from time to
time. In it someone big and mean is breaking into my
room to do me-bodily harm. I am in my bed and
paralyzed with fear. I can't move and I can't cry out
for help. Just before the menacing person gets to me I
wake up... and scream as loud as I can.
As you can see I'm a very insecure person.
The reason I'm writing this is last night I had the
worst dream of all. In this dream Johnny Linton won
the Womanless Beauty Contest again. When he was an-
nounced the winner I didn't hit him with my roses as I
did the last time. This time I grabbed him and choked
him until he was blue in the face.
This dream may become reality. If you would like
to witness a possible assault, just come to the Woman-
less Beauty Contest Saturday night at the high school.
If he wins, he loses!

be possible for someone to
get inside a tire and ride it
down that hill, across the
spillway and have enough
steam left to make it out to
Highway 22. Must'a been
half a mile from the hill to
the road! Larry hadn't said a
word. since we reached the
top but he looked a little pale
Sand he hadn't even gotten in-
to the tire yet.
We discussed the problems
he might encounter. Hitting
a tree or two was no problem
we'd all done that. The
lake was no real threat as we
could all swim. Not being
able to stop and running out
into the highway in front of a
Mack truck could be a pro-
blem. But we figured Larry
could cross that bridge if he
could get to it. The real pro-
blem was the drop-off on the
side of the spillway. He
couldn't go over the side and
fall down into the ravine. As
-enterprising young boys can
do, we put our heads
together and came up with a
solution. Buddy and I would
go down and stand on the
spillway and catch Larry
and the tire if they were
headed off the side of the
cliff. As we started back
down I kept checking the
woods hoping Dad would ap-
pear.
Larry crawls into the tire,
Ricky and Bobby give him a
shove and down he comes.
He went about 30 feet and
veered off the trail, hit a tree
and fell over. Now Buddy
and I couldn't hear what was
going on as they picked
Larry and the tire up but it
appeared even from a dis-
tance that clearly Larry was
trying to get out of the tire.
Rick and Bob kind'a shoved
him back inside and re-
started the tire. This time
he's rolling straight down
the trail. I watch him pick up
speed as he gets about half
way down the hill and realize
that he, of course, is coming
right over the side of the
spillway. Now Buddy and I
are standing about a foot
from the edge. No way we're
going to stop a runaway tire
with a boy in it. We
estimated his speed after-
wards at about 35 mph when
he neared the bottom of the
hill. Buddy spoke kind'a out
of the side of his mouth
without taking his eyes off
the bouncing tire, "Colbert,
this ain't going to work."


From Page 2)

Everybody wants to be a
critic.
We started running up the
hill. We had to stop him
before he reached the
spillway. You ever try to
catch a runaway tire? It ran
right over Buddy and me
both. We did manage to
knock it over so instead of
rolling over the cliff, Larry
and that tire slid over all
the way to the bottom of the
ravine. Wonder of all won-
ders-Larry .survived. Of
course, the slide took
clothes, hair, skin and every-
thing else off his right side.
We were all at Doctor
Holmes when my Dad drove
up. I took one look at him and
knew the "Jim Bob Harris
made me do it" story wasn't
going to work. It didn't he
whipped me for a while when
we gbt home.
I've been studying on that
ride for years. You know it
might could be done. We
could build a wall along the
side of the spillway. We'd
use a steel belted radial tire
for better traction and more
mileage. Bob and Rick could
start it. Buddy and I would
be glad to stand down by the
spillway. If we can just,
locate Larry...

Kesley

Law Chair Is Established at Florida State


University i
TALLAHASSEE-The Edward Ball
Wildlife Foundation and three other organ-
izations that the Florida financier once
headed will present $600,000 to Florida State
University here Thursday for the creation of
the Edward Ball Chair in International Law.
The chair, which is one of the first of its
type in the Southeast, is being endowed with
a total of $1 million. The remaining $400,000
will come in matching funds from the state
of Florida.
Edward Ball, who died in 1981 at the age
of 93, played a major role in the develop-
ment of modern-day Florida.
Ball was chairman of The Alfred I. du-
Pont Testamentary Trust; St. Joe Paper
Co., and The Florida East Coast Railway
Co. He also was present of The Nemours
Foundation, which provides medical care
for the crippled children of Florida and
Delaware and elderly residents of
Delaware.
As part of hi. 50-year campaign to
transform Florida's economy, Ball led the
effort to put together the bridge and high-
way system that first linked the com-
munities of the Panhandle. He 'and his
brother-in-law, Alfred L duPont, also esta-
blished Florida's first statewide banking
chain through which Ball provided the
financing for such notable public im-
provements as Miami's MacArthur
Causeway, the Orange Bowl and state ex-
hibits at two world's fairs.
When he died, Ball left his entire estate,
which has an estimated value of between
$150 million and $200 million, to The
Nemours Foundation for the cure of the
crippled children of Florida.
Over $500,000 of the gift to Florida State
was provided by the Wildlife Foundation,
which is being liquidated.
St. Joe Paper and one of its major sub-
sidiaries, The Florida East Coast Railway,
each gave $35,120, and The Alfred I. duPont
Inter Vivos Trust contributed $25,000.
The $600,000 will be presented to Dr.
Bernard Sliger, president of Florida State,
by Justice B. K. Roberts, president of the
Wildlife Foundation, and by Jacob C. Belin,
chairman and chief executive officer of St.
Joe, and W. L. Thornton, chairman of
Florida East Coast Industries and president
of St. Joe. Belin and Thornton also are trus-


OBITUARIES:

B. A. Collier, 56, Dies


B. A. "Doll" Collier, 56, of
2007 Long Avenue, passed
away late Tuesday afternoon
at Bay Medical Center. A life
long resident of Port St. Joe,
he and his family owned and
operated Florida Boy
Seafood in Port St. Joe.
He is survived by his wife,

Mother of Local
Resident Dies
Ollie Free Shipman, 86,
died February 14 at Baptist
Memorial Hospital in Mem-
phis, Tenn. She was the
widow of Allen Bert Ship-
man. She was a resident of
Memphis until 1975, lived in
Tupelo, Miss. and Mexico
Beach from 1975 to 1984, then
returned to Memphis. She
had been a member of
Everett Memorial. United
Methodist Church since 1920
and was a charter member of
United Methodist Women at
the church. She was a
member of the National
Society of the Daughters of
the American Revolution, the
Woodlawn Chapter of the
Order of the Eastern Star
and, in Tupelo, the Mary
Stuart Chapter of the DAR.
Services were held Sunday,
Feb. 16at the Poplar Chapel
of the Memphis Funeral
Home with the Rev. Dennis
Neenan officiating. Burial
was in Memorial Park in
Memphis.
Survivors include two
daughters, Mrs. William

one sister, Mrs. Alfred New-
man of Memphis, Tenn.; five

tees of The Alfred I. duPont Testamentary
Trust.
Sliger said that, besides presenting
students with the broader aspects of inter-
national law, the Edward Ball Chair will in-
clude a balanced program that teaches the
relationship between private ownership
rights and the public interest in the interna-
tional protection of natural resources and
the environment.
The contribution from the Wildlife
Foundation consists of U. S. Treasury
securities and shares of stock and cash.
In 1966 Ball established the Wildlife
Foundation to monitor and-provide for the
protection and preservation of migratory
wildlife.
The Edward Ball Wildlife Foundation
conserved and maintained waterfowl and
other wildlife on more than 50,000 acres of
Florida land. Part of the Foundation's work
will be taken over by St. Joe Paper Com-
pany and its subsidiaries.
"We, the trustees of the Edward Ball
Wildlife Foundation, believe that Mr. Ball
would have wanted us to establish this chair
so that future generations of Floridians can
be nurtured in the same legal traditions in
which Mr. Ball and his forebears believed,"
said Roberts, a three-time chief justice of
the Florida Supreme Court.
"I think the establishment of this chair
is quite fitting, knowing Mr. Ball's deep in-
terest in law and conservation," said Belin,
who served under Ball for many years at St.
Joe and The Alfred I. duPont Testamentary
Trust.
"Many people are unaware that Mr.
Ball was a man of unbounded generosity
who often liked to hide his gifts to his neigh-
bors and his community under a mask of
anonymity. That's another reason this gift is
so fitting," said Thornton.
"Mr. Ball's father wasa leading jurist. He
was the attorney general of Texas and an
assistant U. S. attorney general. As a conse-
quence, Mr. Ball always had a great respect
for judicial matters," Thornton added.
"This chair is being created at a Florida
institution of higher learning," Belin said,
"because Mr. Ball maintained a deep and
undeviating interest in the state of Florida
and its people, and he believed fervently in

EYEGLASSES AND
CHILDREN
:Q. How can a parent help a
child "want" to wear the
Eyeglasses he needs to see
clearly?
A. If it is a young child, add a
S sense of excitement to his
"new adventure in seeing
and looking good". If a
child sees that the parent
is upset about the eye-
glasses, the first inclina-
tion is not to wear them.
Let your child choose the
f:::frame he or she wants as
::::long as
--it fits properly
ii;:-the bridge doesn't pinch,
leaving marks on the nose.
:.--the bridge isn't too broad
; so it slides down the nose.
I:--it is sturdy and can take
,,trough treatment.
i;! If your child likes the
,:frame he chooses-the opto-
'.l netrist will make sure the
: lenses -are wear them as soon as he sees
:.that "things are looking bet-
.:i;ter than ever."

Hearing On


H. V. Bridge
The Florida Department of Transportation will
conduct a public hearing in Highland View Thursday,
March 6 to discuss alternatives for replacing the
Highland View drawbridge with a high rise span.
The hearing will be held at the Highland View
Elementary School with DOT officials coming to
receive local input to the plans. The hearing will begin
at 7:00 p.m.
The DOT has already held one hearing here in the
Port St. Joe area to present their options on where the
bridge could be located and have now incorporated .
information gathered then into a presentation to be
made next Thursday.
DOT is leaning toward placing the bridge on the
bay side of the present bridge and providing a means of
access to property and businesses now on Highway 98.
The roadway would lie west of present Highway 98 for a
distance and then curve back into the present road bed.

Follows:
EARLY LIFE,
CHARACTERISTICS, AND
POLITICAL ACTIVITIES
# James Madison was born
March 16, 1751 in Port
Conway, Virginia. He attend-
ed Princeton Univetsity
where he rode horseback too.
He completed his four year
course in two years. This
gave him time to demon-
strate against England. He
was fourth president of the
United States. He has be-
come known as,the "father"
of the Constitution. He was
Secretary of State under
President Thomas Jefferson.
In 1776 Madison was elect-
ed to Virginia's Revolution-
ary Convention. Here he
drafted the guarantee of
religious freedom. After
serving two years, he was
sent to the Continental Con-
gress in 1780. James Madison
was five feet, six inches tall,
small boned, and he had a
weak voice, but had strong
actions when on the House
floor.
After the ratification of the
Articles of Confederation in
1781, Madison took on the job
of strengthening the Union by
demanding implied powers
for Congress to enforce finan-
cial demands. He re-entered
the Virginia Legislature in
1784, He defeated Patrick
f-- -Henry!'sbilf'togive financial
help to "teachers of the
Christian religion." To avoid
any political effect by his
nationalism, he asked John
Tyler to sponsor the calling
Sof the Annapolis convention
of 1786, which led to, aided by
Madison's influence, the Con-
-stitutional Convention of
1787.
At the Constitutional Con-
vention his "Virginia Plan",
put forward by Governor
Edmund Randolph, produced
a building plan. for the U.S.
Constitution. At the Conven-
tion he took day-by-day notes
of debates, which give the
only detailed history of the
convention proceedings. To
help achieve ratification he
worked with Alexander Ha-
milton and John Jay in
printing a newspaper called
"The Federalist Papers."
Madison wrote twenty-nine
out of the eighty-five of the
papers. These papers be-
came the explanation of the
Constitution. ,
His influence got ratifica-
tion by Virginia, and led John


JOSHUA HOLLOMAN
Marshall to say "If elo-
quence included persuasion
by convincing, Mr. Madison
is the most eloquent man I
ever heard." When elected to
the new House of Represen-
tatives, Madison sponsored
the first ten amendments to
the Constitution, placing em-
phasis on freedom of reli-
gion, speech, and press. His
leadership in the House of
Representatives ended when
he left during a debate with
Secretary of Treasury Ha-
milton trying to decide on a
way' to handle, war debts.
Hamilton's aim was to
strengthen the national gov-
ernment while Madison's
aim was to protect revolu-
tionary veterans. After Ha-
milton's victory, Madison
denied the existence of im-
plied power to, establish a
national bank to aid the
Treasury. Later, as presi-
dent, he asked for and got a
bank as a "necessity" for
that purpose, but Madison
said it was constitutional only
because Hamilton's bank ne-
ver got constitutional chal-
lenge. Unwilling to admit an
error was a lifelong charac-
teristic.
Madison left Congress in
1797, disgusted with John
Jay's treaty with England.
The Alien and Sedition Acts
of 1798 inspired him to draft
the Virginia Resolutions of
that year, saying the two acts
were violations of the First
Amendments of the Consti-
tutlb.h .
Although Madison was ac-
cused of weakness in dealing
with France and England, he
won the election for president
in 1808. Although he agreed
with Jefferson's wartime
embargo, he reversed Jeffer-
son's actions two weeks after
taking office. He then said
that if Great Britain and
France continued blocking
U.S. ships out of harbor
"Congress will, during its
next session, authorize acts
of hostility."
James Madison did not
leave Virginia for nineteen
years while managing his
five-thousand acre farm. He
hated slavery and worked
hard to abolish it. Madison
helped Jefferson to establish
the University of Virginia in
1819.. Although his last years
were spent in his death bed,
he wrote many letters and
articles fighting secession.
Henry Clay called him, after
Madison left. office, "Our
greatest statesman."
James Madsion died on
June 28, 1836.
