At the Centennial Building, Con-
gressman Bob Sikes and Governor
Farris Bryant made the featured
addresses of the day.
Sikes asked cooperation with
President Johnson in carrying out
his job as our new President. He
pointed out that Johnson could be
a great president if he would be
president "in his own name". He
urge stronger opposition to the
"Civil Rights" bill.
Sikes praised the efforts of Gov-
ernor Farris Bryant in seeing the
.realization of work starting on the
Cross State Barge Canal and sug-
gested that the new canal be nam-
ed after Bryant.
Governor Bryant pointed to the
losing of state control over matters
in this day. He stated that those
who drew up the first Constitu-
tion certainly disagreed on certain
items, but they worked out their
differences in a document to be
governed by. The Governor said,
"it is up to civilized people to
take their differences to the con.
ference table and not to violent
action or war if the world of free-
dom is to survive",

Post Office Sets
Long Hours for
Postmaster Chauncey Costin
nounced this week that the local
post office would be open on Sat-
urday afternoon, December 14 and
December 21 (normal closing time
for Saturday is 12 noon) to give
patrons this additional'" time to
make their Christmas mailings and
to avoid the congestion which
would necessarily occur on the fol-
lowing Monday. Costin further
stated that there would be no mail
delivery on any Sunday between
now and Christmas except for spe-
cial delivery and perishable mat-
ter. He stated, however, that mail
would be distributed to post office
boxes and be dispatched on Sunday
Mail Volume Up
Costin said the .number of par-
cels being received at the local
post office is in excess of the num-
ber recorded for the same period
last year and also Christmas cards
were beginning to be mailed in
substantial numbers which would
indicate that local patrons are co-
operating in the "Shop,and mail
early campaign". Shopping and
mailing early benefits everyone,
the postmaster observed. Custom-
ers who buy early get the pick of
the Christmas stocks; the local
economy is aided by the business
activity created, and everyone-in-
cluding the postal service-is hap-
py about the additional time that
early mailings allow. Early mailing
also gives us time to get gifts and
cards in the hands of addresses in
good condition with less chance of
damage or delay due to human er-
The postmaster also encouraged
the use of ZIP Code in both return
and destination addresses to fur-
ther speed delivery.

How About Some Help for the President?
Before the Pensacola, Florida, city council came a reso-
liution authorizing the city manager to apply for a Federal
grant to pay about one-third of the cost of a sewage-treat-
One councilman immediately moved that the resolution
be rejected because "all of us talk about the high cost of
Federal Government and all of us talk about how they should
curtail expenses I can't in all conscience vote for this
and then turn around and talk about the excessive expendi-
tures of the Federal Government."
In reply, another councilman said that "this is all very
noble, but we are contributing funds to the Federal Govern-
ment and if we don't get our share of it they are going to
distribute it to cities all over the United States." This was
the view which prevailed, by a six-to-four vote. Which is
0one reason President Johnson is having trouble cutting the
There is a footnote, however. A couple of weeks later
came a broader resolution which could have future impact.
It asks Florida's Congressmen to pass laws eliminating Fed-
eral aid such as grants for sewage projects and reducing
Federal aid to municipalities and states generally. It passed,
eight to two.
This may seem inconsistent, but what it really shows is
that in Pensacola as in other places in the nation, more and
more people are wondering or worrying about the economics
and ethics of the swelling pipelines from Washington. If
still more'would do so, it could mean considerable help for
the President in his tough task. -Wall Street Journal
It would give us great pleasure to see the City Commis-
sion of thie-City of Port St. Joe pass just such a resolution
and. send it to Washington. It would please us even more
to see such a resolution drawn up in model form by our City:
Commission and forwarded to the League of Municipalities,'
of which the City is a member, urging its circulation and
-adoption and suibsei fint sending to Washington by other ci-
ties throughout our nation. Such a step could be a beginning
of the end of the 50c dollars we receive back from Washing-
ton in the guise of "free Ogrants."

have laid the blame for the deed at the doorsteps of the
South. on the backs of the "Rightists" and even a few
have blamed the Communists (who share more of the so-
called "blame" than others).
It is sadly amusing to see the leaders of many of our
most powerful bodies in the U. S. departing from another of
the freedoms that we hold most dear that of a person
being innocent until proven guilty (and we suppose this .free-
dom would apply to groups as much as individuals).
And now, in recent days, the FBI, after a thorough in-
vestigation has declared that Oswald and Ruby .
were both "loners". Both felt they had a job to do, regard-
less-of how distasteful such "jobs" are to civilized human
But, getting back to this blame business. Who is to
blame? Certainly, I, along with Rev. Neese last week, re-
fuse to accept any part of the blame. But, who is to blame?
If I were capable of casting such a judgment on someone, I
would say that those very ones who are casting the blame
aside are guilty those in power.
Remembering that Oswald had shed his American citi-
zenship and adopted Russian citizenship, who was the
"statesman" who pulled the strings allowing Oswald re-enter
the U. S., resuming his citizenship. He was an alien. Why
didn't he wait his regular turn for immigration like others
alien to our nation? What was the system that would allow
such strings be pulled?' Find the answers to these questions,
and, in our opinion, you will lay the blame (if the blame may
at all be laid) at their feet.

In too many instances these con-
cerns are financing through their
own offices under dummy financial
institutions at exhorbitant interest
rates. One specific case that was
just handled here in Port St. Joe
had the purchaser of a home pay-
ing nearly 18 percent on his loan.
Recognized financial institu-
tions suggest doing your home
or home Improvement financing
through a government insured
agency such as banks, savings
and loan or Title I institutions.
Of course, there are other legi-
timate financial sources such as
insurance companies, etc.
If your home or home. improve-
ment financing is not done thru
one of these agencies, it would
probably save you a lot of money
and a good deal of trouble to in-
vest a little money in the ser-
vices of an attorney to read your
proposed contract and advise you
In one specific instance here in
Port St. Joe, a Negro had been
sold a home two years ago for $3,-
710.00. He has paid nearly $80.00 a
month for two years on the home.
Recently he wanted to refinance
with a savings and loan institution
to lower his payments. When the
pay-off of his home was asked for
from his financing agency, it was
found that it would take nearly
$4,200.00 to pay the home off-or
$500.00 more than he paid for the
home after making payments every
month for two years.
The services of a lawyer were
obtained and legal fees resulted to
threaten suit for usury against the
concern who then dropped the pay-
off value of the home down to $3,-
700 or right back where the
man started two years ago.
So this experience cost him
$80.00 a month for two years, plus
a lawyer's fee and he still owes
the original purchase price of his
Incidentally, his payments now,
financed over an eight year per-
iod rather than the original seven
year period is now approximately
half his original payment. He is
now financing through a legiti-
mate financial institution.
. This same sort of deal is being
worked also. It is worked especially
by those concerns who advertise
consolidating all your old debts in
with your "home improvement"
payments. Other gimmicks are
charging exhorbitant interest rates
for granting a financing period of
10 years for home improvement
payments. Government insured
institutions, under Title I will
grant only a five-year repayment
In one particular instance, a
man received a $2,500 addition to
his home yet was persuaded to sign
a mortgage for $5,000- to stretch
his payments over a' 10. year per-

the people of the County a chance
to vote on the question. He assured
the Commission that more than

The Counsel for the Little Tax
Payers informed the Board that
an election cannot be called at
this time because the list that the
Supervisor presented i n c 1 uded
names that were not eligible and R
gave several other reasons.
Commissioner Player suggested
that the Board request the Supervi- P
sor to prepare an additional list D
showing only the names of those ]
that registered after August 27,
1963, and that those names not be
considered in determining a mas-
ter list; that the-Board must as
soon after the additional list is
presented and begin working on t
the master list. He then said he
was against tabling this matter,
but thought it should be pushed as i
fast. as possible.
Commisisoner Graham said he
thought the Board should continue
to work on this matter without de-
lay in order to assure the people
this Board is doing everything it
can in bringing this question to a
Commissioner McDaniel asked if
it would be legal to call an election
at this time. Attorney Mayo C.
Johnston, answered that it would
not be legal. Commissioner McDan-
iel then stated that the Board will
have to call an election if one is
called; that he feels it is going to
Court regardless of the way it
goes; that his personal feelings are
at stake but he has to eliminate
these feelings and do as he ought
to do even though it is a decision
that we must make whether we
like it or not, that I am sorry I
have to make this motion but to
be fair to all the people in the
county, I now make a motion that
this Board call an election to be
held on the same date as the May
Primary Election. After receiving
no second to this motion the Chair-
man declared it dead.
After further discussion, Com-
missioner Player moved that the
Supervisor prepare a supplemental
list showing the names of those
that were registerde after August
27, 1963, and that this Board meet
as soon thereafter, as possible to
begin work on a master list to be
used in determining the exact
