Loaded, Says Kay
tbntain Dynamite, and More
Can Be Said Against
Than for Them
By RUSSELL KAY
While most newspapers, includ-
ing Th.e Star, have published in. full
the text of the several constitu-
tional amendments that voters will
be asked to pass on in the general
election, these were printed in type
So small and couched in language
so technical that the average per-
son won't read them, and if they
did, wouldn't understand them.
Take Amendment No. 1, for ex-
ample. It authorizes the issuance
of bonds for school construction
and earmarks a large but indefinite
part of the state revenue from au-
tomobile license taxes for a period
of 30 years for their payment.
Admitting the need for school
construction, I don't like this busi-
ness of earmarking state funds and
the repeated attempts that are be-
ing made to get around the state
constitutional limitations on state
indebtedness. The original purpose
of motor vehicle taxation was for
the construction of highways. If we
keep diverting this tax money taken
from the motorist to. other pur-
poses it means that our road build-
ing. pr.bgram. will suffer. Whfle
these lund'. dc. not go fot roads
but are turned into the state gen-
eral revenue fund, it sees to me
that if we are going to earmark
them f or anything, it certainly
should be for roads.
'This particular amendment is ex-
tremely long and technically word-
ed ,and would be virtually impos-
sible for the average voter to know
the full significance of it, particu-
larly since it will be put on the bal-
lot in brief excerpts and not in full.
Counties now have authority to
issue bonds for school construction
under certain limitations and when
approved by a vote of the people.
This amendment by-passes these
restrictions ,and concentrates tre-
mendous powers in the hands of of-
ficials in Tallahassee. Another step
toward centralization of govern-
ment. In making their decision,
.voters should consider all aspects
of this proposal and not be swayed
solely by the plea that it will help
Amendment No. 2 would add
three additional supreme court jus-
tices and extends the power of the
court. Here is another lengthy and
technically involved amendment. If
adopted it would make the Florida
supreme court one of the largest in
the nation :in number of justices.
What we need is not more high-sal-
aried justices but rather a stream-
lined court procedure for greater
efficiency and to speed up court ac-
tion. This should be done by legis-

Large Crowd Views
Attractive Floats, Costumes, Games
Of Skill, Food Booths and
Amateur Show Mark Day
The annual Hallowe'en Carnival
sponsored by the Port St. Joe Par-
ent-Teacher Asociation last Satur-
day, was the usual big success and
brought forth a large crowd which
jammed the carnival grounds both
afternoon and evening.
The event opened at three o'clock
with a parade from the elementary
school ground to the carnival site.
The parade was headed by the high
school band, followed by the usual
marching contingents of children
and a number of floats entered by
school classes. First -prize for the
best and most original float went
to the 9-B class, of which Mrs. Eula
Pridgeon is the teacher, the theme
being developed around buried
treasure. Second prize went to the
senior class, Miss Kathleen Jeter,
instructor, for the float best depict-
ing the Hallowe'en theme, this be-

Poll Indicates Ike
Has Edge In Florida
Situation May Change Before Elec-
tion Day, But Count Will
Be Very Close
The Star this week received a
report on the presidential poll con-
ducted by Joe Abrams of Jackson-
ville under the heading "Florida
Political Survey and Poll" and it
shows General Eisenhower leading
with 56% of the vote, while Steven-
son has 42%, and 2% undecided,
'based on a turnout of 850,000 at the
While polls have not always given
the true picture, it is nevertheless
a matter of record that the Florida
Political Poll, which has oper-
ated since 1948, has a score of 23
winners and only two losers.
At the same time the poll was
conducted on presidential' candi-
dates, opinions on several other is-
sues were asked for, and results of
this poll are equally :interesting.
They show that 96% are opposed to
the federal government's control of
tide lands; 81% are opposed to
socialized medicine, and 73% feel
that congress should continue the
right to filibuster.
According to information reveal-
ed by the poll, if the election had
been held on October. 20, Eisen-
hower would have carried the state
with a comfortable margin. Whe-
ther the situation has changed or
will change to any degree between
now and November 4 is problem-
atical. But we can be sure that the
vote in this state will be very close
and all indications right now point
'to Eisenhower carrying Florida.

At County Fair
Agricultural and Livestock
Displays Show Great
The weather man provided an
ideal day Monday for opening of
the Third Annual Gulf County Fair,
and the midway was crowded dur-
ing the day and night, but Tu.eday
found a cold wave enveloping this
section which took the temperature
'way down by that evening- and
kept folks away from the fair in
droves. Wednesday also turned out
to be cold, with a slight drizzle at
times, and as The Star went to press
Thursday the sky was still over-
cast, but Old Sol was making a
valiant attempt to break through
and disperse the gloom.'.
There are some excellent agri-
cultural and livestock displays en-
tered this year, both of which indi-
cate the great advances made in
Gulf county along these lines with-
in the past few years.
Judging of both livestock and the
other displays was done Wednes-
day, and while Miss Ruth Milton,
county home demonstration agent,
had promised us names of winners
in her department, she had not pro-
duced as we went to press.
In the livestock exhibit, Danny
Brogdon of Wewahitchka carried
off the grand champion ribbon for
his registered Brahman bull, and
Rudy Gaskin of Wewahitchka took
the top award for the grand cham-
pion cow with a sleek Hereford.
Blue ribon for the best native
cow and calf went to Charlie Mor-
gan of Wewahitchka, and he also
took a first and second ribbon for
Hereford heifers. Coy Brogdon, also
of Wewahitchka, won second place
in the cow and calf division.
Lawrence O'Brien of this city,
carried off top honors in the swine
exhibit with his Duroc boar, with
Pat O'Brien, also of St. Joe, taking
second place. Tom McDaniel of
Wewahitchka was awarded a blue
ribbon for his one-year-old Duroc
Leo Kennedy of this city carried
off a blue ribbon for his sow and
litter, and Charles Starling and Don
Lanier of Wewahitchka received
first awards for gilts.
Awards in the agricultural dis-
play were made as follows: Mrs.
Roland Hardy, Overstreet, pecans;
Doris Buttram, Port St. Joe, pump-
kins; Mrs. W. G. Harden, Wewa-
hitchka, pears and chickens; Mrs.

Our Country "'" Right or Wrong
JUST WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
(Reprinted from Blountstown Record)
As all of you who have been reading this paper
know, we are firmly convinced that both candi-
dates for president of the United States represent
an improvement over what we have been offered
in the immediate past. Judging the two able as-
pirants by the standards men apply to other men
to judge their worth, both end up very well.
Admitting the above to be true, and we doubt
that any of you will deny it, the inevitable ques-
tion arises: What is the difference between a
vote for Ike and a vote for Adlai? We think the
question is important enough for us to try to
The Democratic party is the party which has
engineered our long trip down the road to
"Statism" during the past 20 years. This trip,
which began during a depression, with a small
national debt, has resulted in more prosperity for
the average man than any of us felt possible back
in 1932. As a nation we are better fed, better
housed and more healthy than we have ever
been. Even the opposition cannot deny this.
Against this we have seen the dollar shrink in
value, the individual harassed by his govern-
ment, the open espousement of such things as
"socialized medicine," government in business
and similar excursions into fields that we think
are not the province of our government. Perhaps
the worst of all these things have been the bland
setting up of class against class by a government
which was founded on the idea that "all men are
created equal."-t is ironical that the eager back-
ers of these strange theories pay lip service to

.Now, and we must say this, we are not among
those who feel that all which has been accom-
plished has been bad. Nor do we feel the Re-
publicans will bring about a return to all we
think right. We do, however, believe that the Re-
publicans are more committed to what we think
is the right way than are the Democrats. That is
why we are inclined to think they are more truly
our party at this time than Truman's party is.
It's that simple.
THIS MIGHT DO IT!
Long after the smoke of battle has drifted over
the horizon and the dust has settled: historians
may recall the 1952 election as, the biggest turn-
out of voters in the nation's history. If advice,
urging, and modern sales promotion can bring
about a rebirth of civic consciousness, the polls
from border to border and coast to coast could
be utterly swamped under a sea of votes nearly
twice as large as 1948 when only 51% troubled to
cast a ballot. In adding their voices to the rising
clamor of the press, radio, pulpit, fraternal and
labor organizations, American business, big and
little, is throwing all the forces of advertising be-
hind the call to duty: "Vote as you please but

A4' New '53 Car
The most dramatic changes in
the 38-year history of the Dodge
passenger car was unveiled in Port
St. Joe Thursday, October 23, when
Dodge Division of Chrysler Corpor-
tion introduced its sensational 1953
The ne w, completely restyled
Dodge with a powerful 140-horse-
power Red Ram V-Eight engine
went on display in the showroom
of the McGowin Motor Company.
Sweeping changes in both styling
and chassis features plus the un-
precedented efficiency of the new
engine were announced by W. H.
McGowin, local Dodge Plymouth
New beauty and a smooth flow-
ing effect were achieved, McGowin
revealed, by flavoring the lower,
softer lines and increased glass
area with a touch of continental
design. These attractive styling
changes are being offered in the
entire 1953 Dodge line which con-
sists of 10 different models, Mc-
The 140-horsepower Red Ram V-
Eight engine is featured in the Cor-
onet series, while the popular and
dependable six-cylinder engine is
retained in the Meadowbrook and
Meadowvbrook Special series. The
Wayfarer is not included in the '53
The highly-touted new Dodge Red
Ram V-Eight engine is compact in
size and light in weight. It pro-
duces more horsepower per cubic
inch of displacement than any other
automobile engine in volume pro-
Dodge's efficient new power plant
is -based on design principles used
in high-output aircraft engines. Its
horsepower is 140 at 4,400 r. p. m.
Displacement is 241.1 cubic inches.
It develops this high power output
on regular grades of fuel despite its
h1igh-compression ratio of 7.1 to 1.
More than a dozen other major
changes were listed by McGowin.
"Body beatuification and the Red
Ram engine are definitely high-
lights of the all-new 1953 Dodge,"
he declared, "but there are many
other significant features, such as
the wide choice of transmissions.
And there is. a new steering ease
and maneuverability achieved by a
more compact chassis design, a new
suspension system and an improved
McGowin said that four different
types of drive were being offered.
They are the new Gyro-Torque
drive, to provide lightning response
without shifting; Gyro-Matic drive,
which offers smooth and easy no-
shift driving; automatic overdrive,
which provides a fourth "cruising"
gear for greater gasoline economy;
and standard drive, for those pre-
ferring to do their own shifting.
An improved control-arm arrange-
ment on the front suspension sys-
tem causes the 1953' Dodge to resist
tilting on turns. And new, softer,
two-inch-wide rear springs with
fewer leaves contribute to a more
comfortable ride. A modified frame
design is responsible for increasing
the resistance of the car to twist-
ing strains of the road. Also level-
ing the riding qualities are the time
tested Oriflow shock absorbers.
Mr. McGowin pointed to the "ac-
tion appearance" and beauty of the
1953 Dodge which is marked by
lower, longer and more smoothly
flowing lines than any previous
model. The long, low fender line is
continuous from front to rear .and
is accented by a softly-blended
"kick-up" on the rear fender.
Driver and passenger visibility is
considerably improved by the use
of a one-piece curved windshield
and a larger wrap-around rear win-
dow that achieves an effect of
"watch tower" visibility.
Ornamentation on the 1953 Dodge
has been completely changed. The
hood is one-pie'ce without a center-
strip. In order to retain some con-
tinuity of Dodge identification, the
grille styling, while entirely differ-
ent from 1952, still incorporates a
touch of the previous model. To
promote greater engine efficiency
on V-Eight models, the hood medal-
lion combines identification with
the functional feature of an air
scoop to supply cooler air for the

Amendment No. 3 is another dilly
that is loaded with dynamite. It
would drastically change the pres-
ent constitution relating to county
government. Under the present con-
stitutional provisions we have a
uniform system of county govern-
ment which is subject to change
only by constitutional amendment
or under the provisions of general
state laws, except in some minor
situations in which special acts are
Under the far-reaching provisions
of Amendment 3 most of these re-
strictions are abolished completely
and county government could be
come almost completely under con-
trol of special ,acts of the legisla-
ture. Nothing could be more dan
gerous, for such acts are usually
passed with no consideration, but
rather as a legislative courtesy to
local Iegisaltors. This could easily
lead to county government by a lo-
cal clique and political boss control
instead of orderly systematic con-
trol by general state laws.
Amendment No. 4 would author-
ize an additional circuit judge for
Leon county. Maybe one is needed
and maybe not. The average voter
doesn't know and isn't inclined to
go to the trouble to find out.
The same situation applies to
Amendments 5 and 6. These two
t amendments would create two new
senatorial districts-one for Mon-
roe and one for Bay and Washing-
* ton counties-increasing the power
of the small county against the
- metropolitan areas. We now have
38 senators, do we need 40?
S Space in a single column does not
permit a review of all 11 amennd-
ments that voters are being asked
to consider in November, but I have
tried to give you some highlights
on a number of them.
As far as I can see, these amend-
ments for the most part contain a
lot of dynamite, and there is more
to be said against them than for
- them. Get the full text of each of
them and read the "fine print." If
it makes sense and you UNDER-
STAND it and favor it, vote accord-
ingly. But if it's all Greek to you,
as it is to most folks, then I would
say that voting for these amend-
I ments, down th-e line, would be just

Losses Highest In

Is One of Fifteen States That Do
Not Provide Organized Protec-
tion for All Woodlands
Man-caused forest fires-most of
them started on lands not under
organized protection-gave Florida
the worst forest protection record
in the nation last year. A report is-
sued by the American Forest Pro-
ducts Industries last week showed
3.561,3SS acres of Florida woodlands

Eighty-six per cent of :- 's 1.951
fire loss occurred on 44% of the
state's woodlands still without or-
ganized protection. Incendiastrists
started 6.735 fires last year. Debris
burners and smokers together ac-
counted for 2,010.
Despite Florida's heavy fire loss
the nation's fire protection record
was the best in history. Only 10,
780,622 acres were burned.
