Our Country Right or Wrong
CANDIDATES FEW AND FAR BETWEEN
With but two weeks remaining before the
deadline on March 18 for the qualification of
candidates for county offices, it begins to look
as though there will not be much to interest Gulf
county voters locally. Thes offices include mem-
bership on the county school board and member-
ship on the board of county commissioners.
Of course, we'll have the contest between
George Tapper and Charlie Wilson for represen-
tative in the. legilatur, a.nd lso the state-wide
race between George Smathers and Claude Pep-
per for the U. S. senate, but voters as a rule tale
more interest in elections when they have the
opportunity to cast their ballots for a larger num-
ber of local candidates.
We have hard rumors there will be more can-
didates in the field before the deadline, but as
yet they ,re few and far between.
WHAT ABOUT THE PROBLEMS?
One of the most thoughtful commentaries on
the president's legislative proposals was recently
made by Walter Lippman. He wrote: "Truman's
technique is never to deal with problems, but
only with the excellent results that would be
achieved if the problems had been solved .
leaving the critic no target to shoot at, no antago-
nist to get hold of, only the thin air to thrash
WHAT 'WOMEN'S RIGHTS'?
The campaign for "equal rights" for women
has resulted in the United States senate approv-
ing a constitutional amendment to forbid dis-
crimination against women, as women, in the
This is unquestionably a worthy piece of legis-
lation, as indicated by the support it has received
from women's organizations generally. We find,
however, that the whole purpose of the "equal
rights" amendment is confusing to a lot of peo-
ple in Florida-especially husbands.
These puzzled fellows raised a few questions,
complete with answers, as follows:
In a divorce, who collects alimony? Answer
Which spouse can claim property tax exemp-
tion in the event of the other's death? Answer
Who has the privilege of refusing jury serv-
ice? Answer-The woman.
On a crowded bus, who gets the seat? An-
If a man needs a suit and his wife wants a
dress, who has priority on the piggy, bank? An-
When a wife wants to go dancing or show-
seeing and hubby prefers to stay home and relax
after a hard day at the office, who is in the right?
Who is clearly the underprivileged sex? An-
Any opinions contained in the foregoing are

Gulf county, long neglected in the way of new
roads from the state highway department, is get-
ting quite a slice this year. Could it be due to
the forthcoming election?
The president says it's all right to keep getting
farther in debt if you have something to shdw
for it. Like millions of bushels of potatoes, tons
and tons of dried eggs and a mountain of butter,
