TOO GOOD FOR US
Sometimes, when we think of all the under-
privileged generations, that have preceded ours
in the long span of civilization we wonder whe-
ther we are truly, deserving of the elegancies
and refinements of this age in which practically
everything has been thought of.
Just take the latest as an example.* It's a
gastronomic stroke that blends two time-hon-
ored and widely-loved nutrifiers into something
entirely new. You might call it a "Boiled Alas-
ka", except that it's as uncomplicated as putting
sugar in your coffee. All you do is take a bowl
of hot cream of wheat and drop a dollop of ice
cream smack in the middle of if. Personally, we
go for strawberry ice cream in ours, but any
kind is good, especially the fruit flavors.
This is modern efficiency at its best. In
fact i,t's just one step removed from automation.
Through this startling invention you get sugar
and .cream plus on your cereal in one move-
raent. You will also find that the action that
follows is speeded up considerably.
In fadt, if this new breakfast tempo carries
through the day as it might, due to added nu-
trition we may get all the things done by
quitting time that we always hope to dol
THERE'S DAGGERS IN MEN'S SMILES
Two foreign statesmen from opposite sides
of the world, talking in Washington this week,
gave Americans some sound and thoroughly
.West Germany's indestructible Chancellor
Adenauer, who was guest of honor at a press
reception, told his hosts that the situation be-
tween Russia and the free world is "very ser-
ious"j He said he did not believe in a hot war,
but that the "smiles" campaign is "more dan-
gerous than the threat of war".
"I firmly believe," he said, ",that nothing has
changed. It makes no difference with a dicta-
torship whether it is one man, three men or ten
men. Every dictatorship negates justice law
1'ii3 #tAAO OR 4T. JOLp QUlIP COUNTY, PO.RIDA
THURSDAY, JUN 20, 1688
Hollington Tong, Nationalist China's new s
ambassador to the US, painted a picture of Red
strongholds of Russia and "Peoples" China work-
ing toward a joint industialigation that will make
this vast, two-continent Communist domain the
most powerful aggressive force the world has
ever seen. "When that time comes," he told the
National Press Club, "it will not be necessary
for the Red combine to fight for Southeast Asia.
A threat, a command, a telephone call will set
knees quaking everywhere."
In due course, the knee-quaking might even
extend to those western nations that have been
so eager to expand their Red China trade and
thus speed the power build-up.
But, more immediately, we can watch for
Communist reaction to the joint communique
issued by Chancellor Adenauer and Secretary of
State Dulles. In it, they called upon the Soviet
Union "to put an end to the brutal and unnatural
division which it has imposed on Germany" so
that the West might place more stock in Red
promises. We should soon see whether the
Kremlin is smiling or just laughing.
A state governor who believes in getting
to the heart of things once said: "Nobody ob-
jects to high taxes except the people who have
to pay them."
We'll soo nsee whether he was right. Start-
ing July 1 (if Congresional formalities are on
schedule) the federal gas tax jumps to three
cents per gallon. Purpose of the higher rate is
to finance the national highway program there's
been so much tub-thumping about.
The motoring public has been exposed to
plenty of pictures an stories about the "dream"
highways this program is supposed to build.
They haven't heard so much about the gas tax
4acrease that goes with it. When they buy gaso-
line, on or after July 1, and find the tax rate
has gone up another cent, they'll be face to
face with stem reality.
The ."dream" superhighways will be com-
pleted far in the future. The higher gas tax
will be with us here and now, and will stay with
us for at least the next 16 years according to the
Furthermore, this federal gasoline tax is
stacked on top of a high state gasoline tax. The
two together make a very tall and ugly-looking
The federal tax cost of this highway pro-
gram will top $38 billion. The gasoline tax part
of it alone will be over $29 billion or about
77 percent of the total. If rM. Gasoline Con-
sumer uses his vehicle just the average amount,
he will shell out more than $860 in federal gas
taxes alone over this program's financing period.
How will he take this?
It will be interesting gto see how folks react
on July -1. What will they say when they drive
into their favorite gas station and come face to
face with a new tax on gasoline?

F'orida Press Association.
Over 150 Florida publishers, their
families and friends made the trip.
We left Miami at 6 p.m., arriving
in Nassau the next morning at 8
a.m. It was the first meeting of the
association ever held on foreign
soil. The boat served as our hotel
during the week end excursion,
which lasted from Friday evening
the 15th to Monday morning the
Weather was perfect and the sea
smooth. Heavy ground swells dis-
turbed the stomachs of a few folks,
but everyone was up and ready to
go when the boat docked. Native

I recall a similar situation in Ja-

years ago. Unlike the American
American tourists spend most of
their money in the liquor stores
where some types of liquor are
available at considerable discount.
Various Scotchs, Canadian Club,
rums, and gin are much cheaper
than in the States, but those who
prefer Bourbon find that prices are
jast about the same as at home.
I enjoyed visits to Nassau's two
big tourist hotels. They were our
hrsts for a cocktail party and a
dinner while we were on the Island.
The Royal Victoria and Emerald
Beach hotels offer everything the
