the First Baptist Church of Port
St. Joe was the guest speaker at
the Rotary Club Thursday.
With PIrt St. Joe being in the
midst of the nation-wide Church
Attendance Crusade, Rev. Smith
urged the Rotarians to make time
"First", said Smith, "we should
recognize God as God and realize
that we can make no excuses to
Him". Smith said that one of the
favorite excuses for everyone was
"I'm too busy", when asked to do
something -for their God or their
Church. "This excuse isn't good
enough", said Smith, "A person
can usually find the time to do
what he wants to -do". Smith urged
that Rotarians take time for the
things of God, "while you yet have
Rev. Smith told the group, "You
can take your riches to Heaven
with you. You must leave your
money and property, but riches pil-
ed up by taking time for God and
His work, will go with you to hea-
Smith urged that the group use
the time of the Crusade from Jan-
uary 1 to Easter Sunday to acquire
the habit of -taking time -for God
and going to his house to worship.
Guests of the club were Frank

pose, keeping experienced pilots

As to weapons, Lt. Audette said
that -the later model aircraft use

Founding Fathers Wisely Left Editors
The Task of Deciding What To Publish
State Sen. Harvie J. Belser of our neighboring 3rd Senatorial
District, who penned potshots at the state administration during
most of 1958, has broadened the attack to include the newspapers
serving the rural-type counties. That, we presume, includes us.
". .. I hope," he said in a postscript in a letter to one of his
constituents, "that some day that the newspapers in these rural
counties will keep the merchants and other citizens of the counties
up to date on legislation passed at each session of the Legislature
in order that their subscribers will have some idea of what is
going on in the legislative field.
"The mere printing of marriages, divorces and births is not
fulfillment of the right and privilege accorded the press under
the United States Constitution. These papers owe the citizens
more than that.
"They also owe the citizens more than 'warped', unintelligent
and one-sided views on governmental matters ."
Let us be the first to acknowledge the shortcomings of the
press, and not only just the weekly or rural press, in coverage of
legislative news. Few of us have the staff, space or facilities for
interpreting, digesting and publishing the thousands of words
the legislators some of them lawyers -- write into law each
session in Tallahassee and Washington.
Such efforts in the past have been self-defeating. Few sub-
scribers, readership surveys have shown, have demonstrated an
interest in such instruction. They had rather read about mar-
riages, births and other local happenings.
As for "fulfilling any right and privilege accorded the press
under the United States Constitution," we don't recall any right
-- except the freedom being extended the press in that in-
strument. Nor do we recall any privilege. Instead, the found-
ing fathers wisely provided for a free press and left it to the
individual editors and publishers the ask of deciding what to
print. For nearly 200 years, the nation's editors and publishers
have done what we'd call a fair to middlin' job.
We're willing for history to speak for itself on that score.
As for the implication that this area's newspapers are pro-
viding their readers with warped, unintelligent or one-sided
views on governmental matters, we presume that what the sen-
ator really meant is views that disagree with his own. We, there-
fore, wonder if the senator considers the views he himself holds
to be the only straight, intelligent and two-sided views.
Until we find someone willing to share with us a monopoly
on wisdom, righteousness and intelligence, we propose to continue
printing our own views, just like we've always done, and we pro-
pose to print the news in the same way. When it becomes neces-
sary for us to'depend on someone else to tell us what is warped,
unintelligent or one-sided, we'll be ready to follow an example
once set by the senator, by announcing that we're quitting and
going home. Then well quit.

Americans Not Very Hospitable
Although we have never been abroad, we read enough to
know that the most distinguishing feature of the American to the
European is his brashness. No one has to wonder what an Ameri-
can thinks about a matter.
Perhaps that is why we are continually fighting a defensive
battle on the counsel table front.
Americans have again let their brashness show in their' re-
ception of Russian Deputy Premier Mikoyan. While on the sur-
face the Russian has received a hearty welcome and a free rein
in his inspection of how Americans live, he has been instructed in
no uncertain terms that is not liked because he is a Russian.
We can't help but believe that this is what Mikoyan and the
Russian leaders want. American visitors to Russia get the friendly
VIP treatment and Russian visitors to the U. S. get the rotten egg
One will get you 10 that upon his return home, these photos
of hostility and threatened bombings and other acts of violence
will receive lead story, page one in Russia with the caption, "See!
we told you America was a war-mongering nation they hate
you. There is no chance of friendly relations with a nation that
acts like this".
And again, it is not a very friendly way for a Christian nation
to treat an athiest. Not very good advertising at all.

TETANUS: EASIER TO
PREVENT THAN CURE
The old idea that a puncture
wound from a rusty nail is- the ma. '
jor cause of tetanus, or "lockj%"
is a slight misconception. Tetarnu
may develop from almost any
scratch or wound from many
sources such as nails or other sharp
metal, glass or wood objects, thorn.;
and animal bites. Children, farmers,
ranchers, dairymen, gardeners and
any persons whose activities bring
them into contact vwth puLsibly con-
taminated soil run the risk of ex-
posure to these dangerous bacteria.
The germ which causes tetanus-
the clostridium tetani-produces one
of the most powerful poisons known.
The germ is found in soil contain-
inated by the body wastes of cattle,
horses and other animals. It is what
is called: an: anaerobic organism,
which means that it thrives in the
absence of air. Thus when it is in-
troduced beneath skin so wounded
as to close off the air and also is
hard' to clean, conditions.are perfe. i
for its development.
The toxin or poison produced by
the germs affects nerve tissue
throughout the body. In untreated
.cases, death may come in as short
,a period as four days from exhaus-
tion, heart failure or -suffocation
caused by painful involuntary tight-
ening of the muscles. If the patient
can be carried through the tenth
lay, about 50 per cent recover.
Tetanus is considerably easier to
prevent than cure. If you have re-
ceived a skin puncture, it is impera-
tive that you see your physician at
.once. He w`; cleanse the wound
pr.,ilLrlv and decide whether or not
to administer tetanus toxoid or an-
titoxin. It is well to remember con-
stantly that any minor injury could
be the site of a tetanus germ.
