sBROTHER,-;N W THEY KNOW
SWednesday night of last week our County
Representative and State Senator from this dis-
trict were enlightened in no uncertain terms
as to the legislation desired by the citizens of
this county.' Approximately 200 citizens were
present at the open forum meeting held by
Representative Cecil G. Costin, Jr., and State
Senator George G. Tapper. Almost to a man,
the cry was "grant the school teachers a sub-
stantial raise in pay" and "grant more money to
our school systems".
The lawmakers asked what the populace
wanted and that is what they heard.
Both the Senator and Representative were
urgedfor approximately an hour to grant these
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
increases, even if it meant that some other state
-service, might lack for sufficient funds or if the
people of the state even had to do without some
of the benefits now afforded them.
We believe that this is the public opinion
all over the state. If it is, and all the Repre-
sentatives and Senators heard what Tapper and
Costin heard from their constituents, then it
would seem that the teachers will get their sub-
stantial -raise in pay, or the state government
will see an entirely new set of faces, come next
That was the 'depth of feeling' and we
were glad to see it. At last the parents of the
state are awaking to the fact that their children
are receiving a haphazard education due to their
own.lack of interest, in the matter. If parents
all over the state vented their wishes as those
in Port St. Joe in the past, few weeks, comes a
few years hence, Florida will be among 'the
leaders in good educational standards, and,not
about-six from 'the ,bottom.
The will of the citizei-nsca' w-ork, wonders'
in government, if the citizens will just stand to-
,gether and let their wishes be known and bring
the power of their ballot out in the open in
place of voting a secret choice and never open-
ing his mouth about a thing.. The people have
sat by the wayside too long and let things just
"rock along" as best it can.
There were other matters brought up at
the meeting but none received the attention

satisfying salad for meatless days.
Ever thought of combining fish with fruit? This idea is par-
ticularly timely now during Lent when meatless dinners are in order
and you'll find that the fresh, exciting flavor of golden pineapple will
lend new and appetizing interest to your menus. Pineapple is univer-
sally popular and so versatile it is a perfect flavor-mate with any fish;'
fresh or frozen halibut, sole, bass or any of the canned varieties such
as tuna, salmon, shrimp or crab. You can use pineapple rings or chunks
as an accompaniment for broiled or fried fish, or as a stuffing for
baked fish, and a colorful topping of pineapple tidbits will lend inviting
flavor to fish casseroles. In main-dish salads, which are especially
important during this Lenten season, the addition of pineapple will
make them doubly appealing to the eye and more satisfying to eat.
