A NOSE IN THE TENT
It was a cold night on the desert. The camel
had a chill. That's why the Arab didn't object
when the camel stuck its nose inside his tent.
"As long as the camel only wants to stick his
nose in here to warm it for awhile there's no
harm in that," the good-natured Arab reasoned.
The camel liked the warmth of the tent.
Slowly, cautiously, it edged further inside. First
its nose was in the tent, then its head, then its
back, then its hump. Before that night was over,
the camel had taken over the tent entirely. The
Arab was pushed out on to the cold desert.
During the last several decades, we've seen
this incident reenacted on a grand scale, with
the federal government cast in the camel's role.
It got its nose inside the states' tent during the
depression. Ever since it has been edging in
further and further. The states are being pushed
There are ever so many examples, but
here's a timely one: Back in the depression, the
federal government slapped a "temporary" one-
cent per gallon tax on gasoline "reluctantly" to
balance the budget. No one objected much
then. Congress frankly admitted it was muscl-
ing in on the states' tax territory but promised
to move out the next year.
That was in 1932 twenty-three years ago.
In 1940, the camel's head and neck pushed into
the tent when the federal gasoline tax was
boosted to 1% cents. In 1951, the camel wiggled
its hump under the canvas the tax was boosted
to two cents.
Now, in 1955, some Congressmen have
stopped even talking about dropping the federal
gasoline tax. They're talking instead about in-
creasing the rate. They're thinking about hitch-
ing this aged "temporary" tax to a national road
program that would make Washington the big
wheel in highway planning.
Highway development is one field where
the states are still supreme. But they won't be
much longer if the national highway program
goes through the way it's being talked about.
Advocates of this national highway program
aren't satisfied with a federal gasoline tax in-
crease. They want the states to boost their gaso-
line taxes way up, too to fit the highway plans
dictated from Washington.
The camel is ready to set up housekeeping
in the tent. The taxpayers will be shivering out
in the cold unless enough of them have the cour-
age and the wisdom to put in a few good licks
for states' rights before it's too late.
If the Government MUST keep on levying
this tax, let them turn it over to the states for
road building purposes, but for heaven's sake,
let the State have the say-so about what roads
they want built, after all they know their own
needs better than Washington does.
WAS HE RIGHT OR WRONG
We have heard rumors on the street that
one of the local policemen needlessly beat a
man up on the streets of Port St. Joe one night
about three weeks ago. According .to reports,
the policeman, for no reason at all, knocked the
man down on the sidewalk and burst his head
Such talk hurts our town, especially when
it isn't true.
We have heard this talk before, but like
everyone else we hadn't witnessed any such act.
This particular night it was a Wednesday
night we had just knocked off work about
midnight and went around on Reid Avenue on
our way home. We noticed that the theatre
manager was still at the theatre and stopped to
get his newspaper cuts for the next week's ad.
Just before we went in the theatre we noticed
two men over near the old Stone building on the
corner of Reid and Third drunk and raising sand.
About the same time we saw the police car
coming from the direction of the Post Office.
The police car pulled up and the policeman,
who was patrolling by himself at that time of
night, came out of the car to take the two drunks
The two men protested that they weren't
going, but were going to make their way back
to their boat (apparently they were off a tanker).
The policeman attempted to put them into the
car (both men were as big as he was) and the
two men still resisted. They then got on each
side of the policeman, each grabbing an arm to
attempt throwing him down. The policeman
then shook one of the men off and hit the other
man knocking him down. Needless to say, they
came along peacefully then.
The question is, what would you do if you
were patrolling the streets at that time of night
by yourself and it looked like you were going
to get a mauling?

Students Holding Jobs
During Summer Must
Have Social Security
Now that the school year is rap-
idly drawing to a close, John V.
Carey, district manager, Social Se-
curity Administration District Of-
fice located at 522 Mercer Avenue,
Panama Cty, reminds all students
of their need to secure a Social
Security card. Many students re-
member that they weren't able to
go on a job during vacation last
year until they got their cards. This
is the time when you should see
about getting your card if you ex-
pect to work this summer.
Almost everyone who works at
any kind of a job or owns any kind
of a business comes under Social
Security without regard to the age
of the individual. The only excep-
tion to this rule, Carey pointed
out, is in the case of a child who
is working for his or her parents
and is under the age of 21.
Changes made in the Social Se-
curity Law by the 1954 Congress
will cause many students to need a
Social Security card for their work
this year whereas they did not need
a card- last vacation period. Accord-
ing to Carey, this is so because now

Must Have Birth
Applicants who are planning an
enlistment in the United States Air
Farce can contact a representative
here in Port St. Joe. Sgt. Jenkin.s
who is out of the Panama City of-
fice has announced that he will be
in the local post office on Monday
morning from 10 a.m. to 12 noon
May 23, and June 13 and 27 for the
purpose of interviewing interested
applicants. He also wishes to in-
form young men and women that
they should have in their possess-
ion a birth certificate. If they do
not have one then a delay of 10 to
20 days is quite possible. If they
are interested in leaving during the
month of June then it would be
to their advantage if they would
contact Sgt. Jenkins on his next
visit on May 23 so that many of the
involving paper work can be taken
care of in advance of the time they
plan on leaving. This would prevent
being disappointed as so often hap-
pens. For instance two boys want-
ing to leave at the same time. One
may have a birth certificate and
the other one would not. This would
necessitate one boy waiting for
the other or he may not want to
wait so he would go ahead and
leave while the other one is waiting
for his birth verification. Sgt. Jen-
kins will be glad to procure a birth
verification for applicants free of
