Value of Community
College Told Kiwanis
Tommy Smith, Superintendent c
Public Instruction. in Bay Count:
gave the Port St. Joe Kiwanis Clu'
an insight on the value of the Cois
munity College to this area at their
regular meeting Tuesday. ,
Smith declared that higher ed'u
cation is needed more, today thai
ever before. He pointed out the fac
that only one percent. of the na
tion's unemployed were skilled o:
.trained people. The remainder wer4
made up of unskilled and largely
uneducated people. He expressed
the opinion that within ten years
this nation will see a tremendous,
shortage of trained and skilled la
borers. He pointed out the fact thai
the armed forces are cutting dowr
-on unskilled people. They are nom
requiring high school educations
especially in the air forces.
'In meeting this need, Smith said
that the establishment of the Gull
Coast Community College had in.
creased enrollment in institutions
of higher learning by students from
this -area by over 15 percent.,
Smith said that the educational
opportunities offered by Florida's
junior colleges were equal to any
first two college years anywhere
in the nation. "We are in strictly
the education business", said
Smith. "No fraternities, no soror-
ities, no drinking problem, no ath-
letics to speak of, no on campus
living. Our students are right near
home for the parents to keep In
line, and the hours spent at school
are hours of strictly -learning". .
Smith expressed regret to the
Current hesitancy to provide the
necessary money for education. He
declared that it was dismal times
when people couldn't decide whe-
ther they wanted untaxed whiskey
or proper education. Smith declared
that -the people of the state and
nation were ahead of the Legisla-
tors in desiring the proper educa-
tion facilities and revenues. "The
people are ready to provide them,

Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick Defends Wording
Of His Marriage Counsel Act To Rotary
- Judge Warren L. Fitzpatrick ad,
dressed the Rotary Club last
Thursday, defending his proposed
marriage counsel law that was de-
feated in the Florida Legislature
during its present session.
Fitzpatrick said he was" becom-
ing deeply concerned over the. in-
.security of American home's. He
pointed out that lie was in a posi-
tion to know the seriousness of the
problem, since half of his time was
taken up in riefereeing fights be-
tween married "people.
- Fitzpatrick .said that the broken
homes had a telling effect on the
children of the homes. "Out of-these
homes come most of our undesir-
able people", said the Judge..
Fitzpatrick said that on the ma-
terial sidee' these broken homes
were costing the tax payer dearly.
"A vast majority of tax money is
spent as a direct result of unhappy
homes", said the Judge. "Broken
homes creates juvenile delinquency
which takes tax dollars to fight
and judge. Broken homes put peo-
ple on relief rolls and create a
great majority of the criminals of
the nation. The good people of the
nation earn the money to pay the
taxes to take care of the undesir-
ables that come from these and
other bad environments", the Judge
and Utah. Fitzpatrick said the law
had cut divorces by one third in
these two states -and declared that
such a measure was direly needed
Fitzpatrick also stressed that all
young people about to be mar!e.t'
should be instructed on some -o
the problems of marriage prior tr.
the ceremony to forewarn them of
some of the troubles to come.
