Rotary Sponsored Dental

The Florida State Board -of
Health Mobile Dental Unit, spon-
sored by the Rotary Club of Port
St. Joe has begun a program of
'corrective dental care and dental
health education. The unit is cur-
rently stationed on the school
grounds of the Washington Elemen-
tary School. When work is complet-
ed this unit will be moved to Car-
ver School ini Wewahitchka.
The purpose of this program
is threefold. 1) direct remedial
care for children in the first six
< grades of. school whose parents
are medically indigent. 2) Pre-
Svntion of dental diseases'resulft-
ing from poor care and maloc-

of the importance of consistent
daily care of the teeth. The Unit
is fully equipped with all neces-
sary instruments including X-
ray. It is operated by a graduate
This is the first part of the Ro-

Our newspaper press suffered
a bad breakdown last Saturday,
as we were printing the last of
the "Campaign Sale" circulars.
An attempt to 'repair if' was fu-
tile, so we had to call a printing
machinery "doctor" from Atlanta
to fix the press's innards. He ar-
rived yesterday, and the press is
probably being put back together
In the meantime, we have had
to make up pages and take them
to Wewahitchka to print them.
Such an arrangement makes
for a lot of work, a lot of hurry-
ing, and consequently a lot of
forgotten things and things that
time just wouldn't allow for.
We'll try to tell you why we
think the press threw a gear in
next week's paper if we get
the thing fixed.

Come...World's 100,000-Mile Durability Champion
At Dayiona, a team of four specially equipped
'64 Comets each traveled day and night 100,000
miles at over 105 miles per hour- an un-
equaled feat of stamina and durability.
In Africa, Comet showed its stamina again in
"the wildest ride on earth"-the monsoon-swept
East African Safari Rally. 94 cars started. Only
21 finished the run-two of them were Comets.
Leads the sales success parade!
Is it any surprise that Comet sales are up to
almost double last year's? Comet proves what
it can do. After 100,000 miles at Daytona,
one of these special Comets has traveled
another 31,000 and is still going strong. Then
rally-equipped Comets slogged through 3,188
miles of African mud, rocks and jungle-the
first to carry America's colors in the world's
toughest car event. Want more reasons? Just
take a look at this new Comet. Husky, racy,
beautiful, and built, really built. Make
tracks for a Comet at your Mercury dealer's.

"I will propose to, and urge upon the legislature with all the influence of the governor's office,
the adoption of a resolution placing a constitutional amendment on the ballot, so that the people
may vote on this question which would give local school boards the authority to allow Bible read-

STANDS ON THE CIVIL RIGHTS BILL
Senator Holland says:
"At this moment, I should be with you in Floricda .
seeking your support in the coming Democratic primary
in my bid for renomination to the United States Senate.
Instead, I am in Washington on urgent business .
more important to us all because I feel the Civil
Rights Bill now before the Senate would be-bad legisla-
tion for all our citizens and one which, even if passed,
will be doomed to failure by the fact of its very coercive
nature. This bill would put such fantastic power in the
hands of the attorney general that we could ccme close
to being a police state. For this reason, I am spending
my campaigning time in Washington doing the job
you sent me to do. In the meantime, I warmly ask you
to consider my past service to you and our great State
of Florida and return me to the United States Senate as
your senior senator."
Senator Holland has served as your U. S. Senator since 1946.
During these years he has attained seniority ranked twelfth
among 67 Demoqratic Members of the Senate.

A modest farm house near Quincy in Gadsden County was home for Scott
during high school days. Soon after his birth, his family moved from
Madison County to Gadsden County.
Every farm always has its share of animals;
here Scott holds his favorite pet.

An appreciation of nature comes early to a boy raised on a form. Every youth
has a spot which is "special" to him ... a place where a boy can meet his
thoughts in private. This was such a place for young Scott Kelly.
The Long Road From Boyhood To Governor
From a boyhood on a farm near
Quincy in Gadsden County to the gov-
ernor's chair in Tallahassee is a long,
uncertain path, but successful business-
man, state senator and former Lake-
land Mayor Scott Kelly stands ready to
meet the challenge.
With typical strong Kelly determina-
tion molded from sharing early respon-
sibilities on the family farm, the per-
sonable 36-year-old Kelly knows the
meaning of lean times and the need of
a state government with fiscal aware-
Scott is one of six children and was
born September 30, 1927, in Madison
County, Florida; but, soon thereafter,
his family moved to a farm near
Quincy; this served as home through
graduation from Quincy High.
His initial start in the busy world of
commerce came at the age of 12 when
he industriously opened a rickety, but
profitable, fireworks stand on the
county courthouse square in Quincy
during the Christmas Holidays.
When Kelly was 14, his aggressive
business tactics in the field of fireworks
caused business to increase and even
brought a chuckle from courthouse em-
ployees. Not content with one stand,
the enterprising youngster opened two
additional stands on the other sides of
the courthouse square.
Kelly exhibited an interest in farm-
ing at an early age. When he was 13,
Kelly took $300 of his hard earned
money to enter a Future Farmers of
America contest. He chose to take on
the project of building a chicken
brooder. The construction after careful
planning, went smoothly. The brooder
was stocked with 100 chicks and young
Scott, along with his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. James Kelly, were delighted with
the completed project.
But the youthful farmer was to ex-
perience his first great disappointment
with his FFA project. A faulty furnace
triggered a fire and completely demol-
ished the brooder and chickens, along
with the dreams of a young farm boy.
The tears came. After a sleepless
night by Scott, his father promised to
rebuild the treasured FFA project for
the youthful farmer by sundown the
next day. And so he did, but not before
it taught the 13-year-old Scott to accept
his first disappointment, along with the
equally important character building
precept of restoring faith in people.
Kelly lost his father a year later,
when he was killed in an automobile
accident. The slender youngster (not
yet a man, no longer a boy) keenly felt
the loss of his father. This loss of per-
sonal counsel and deep comradeship
would leave its imprint firmly planted
on Scott throughout his development.
Earlier, in the summer of 1941, Scott
tumbled from a tobacco barn and spent
the majority of the year on crutches.
In spite of the injury, Scott bounced
back and went on to play football for
Quincy High School. He was awarded
a football scholarship to the University
of Florida in recognition of the record
he made in high school athletics. Al-
though the death of his father made it
necessary for Scott to work during his
high school years, he compiled an out-
standing scholastic and athletic record.
Scott worked his way through school
... a challenge which a person who
has had to do it will admire.
Upon graduation from Quincy High
in 1945, Kelly attended the University
of Florida on the football scholarship.
At the University he joined Pi Kappa
Alpha Fraternity. From the University,
he went on to enter the U. S. Army.

Success Came Early
Scott served in the U. S. Army as an enlisted man. After his honorable
discharge, the young veteran, his wife Margie and son Pat, moved to
Lakeland where a new chapter in their lives unfolded.

at his first Lakeland real estate office.
From running a restaurant to being
a life insurance man (worked for Inde-
pendent Life Insurance Company of
Jacksonville), from being a bookkeeper
in a furniture store to other jobs, Scott
fought his way forward. A dynamic new
chapter unfolded for Scott Kelly, former
Gadsden County farm boy, when he
and his attractive wife, Margie, decided
to settle in the picturesque and pro-
gressive city of Lakeland.
Confident of the future growth of the
state, Kelly entered the general con-
tracting business in Lakeland in 1950
at the age of 22. He was one of the
first contractors to build residential
housing developments in the Lakeland
area. His wife Margie worked side-by-
side with him as his secretary-book-
keeper until 1955.
With Scott and Margie Kelly, busi-
ness and politics has been a team ef-
fort. When Scott embarked on a busi-
ness career, Margie manned the office
while Scott supervised .work at con-
struction'sites. They worked together
until after their -three children were
born. Then Margie took over full-time
duties as a homemaker.
This teamwork spirit has prevailed in
Scott's campaigns for the City Com-
mission of Lakeland and .his two cam-
paigns for Senator. These were door-
to-door efforts. Little change has been
made except that in the campaign for
the governorship, Margie is doing more
city-to-city traveling with Scott and on
her own, to coffees, teas and informal
meetings with women in all parts of the
Through sound business -principles
and good management, Scott's fledg-
ling contracting business soon was able
to tackle larger jobs in the form of pro-
fessional office buildings and commer-
With an interest in soil conservation
dating back to his Future Farmer of
America days as a youth on the farm
near Quincy, the young contractor rose
to the challenge offered by strip-mined
wastelands near Lakeland. Kelly felt
these lands could be transformed into
attractive residential areas.
After intense planning, Scott tackled
the project with his usual enthusiasm.
The end result proved to be worth the
effort. The area emerged into a con-
temporary subdivision the first such
reclamation project of its kind in the
A year after entering the construc-
tion field, Kelly turned to a logical
allied area and at 23, became the
youngest Realtor in the United States.
Scott continues to operate a real estate
agency in Lakeland with a staff of five
As a successful businessman, Kelly
also owns and operates a general in-
surance agency. He serves as director
and chairman of the executive commit-
mittee of the Imperial Bank of Lake-
In spite of a busy schedule, Scott has
always found time to be active in
church and community affairs. The
family belongs to the First Baptist
Church of Lakeland. The Kelly's have
three children: Pat, 15, Mike, 11, and

For his many contributions toward a
better community and better govern-
ment, Kelly was selected in 1954 as
Lakeland's Outstanding Young Man of
the Year. He was named one of Flor-
ida's Five Outstanding Young Men in
1957. In 1961 he was awarded the
Florida Legislative Achievement Coun-
cil award for performing the most effec-
tive committee work of any member in
the 1961 Florida legislature. From the
Junior Chamber of Commerce, he re-
ceived the State Jaycee "Good Govern-

A firm belief in the principle that good govern-
ment comes as a result of active participation by its
citizens, triggered the youthful Scott Kelly's decision
to seek the office of city commissioner in Lakeland,
It was a vigorous campaign for the young busi-
nessman. For six weeks, he and his charming wife
Margie campaigned door-to-door, meeting the
voters of Lakeland and discussing the city's needs.
The people of Lakeland responded warmly to
Kelly and elected him city commissioner at the age
of 25 over three opponents, without a run-off
election. At age 27 he served Lakeland as its
youngest mayor. At the 1955 Mayor's Conference
in New York City, he was acclaimed the nation's
During his outstanding term as mayor, Kelly in-
stituted numerous community betterment programs.
Among these was a recreation program designed
to keep down juvenile delinquency. This program
received national recognition from the late U. S.

one of the most outstanding youth programs in the

Primary in Polk County's history.
Kelly's accomplishments during two terms of
office are unparalleled. Probably the most notable
accomplishment was as chairman of the Interim
Committee on Public Roads and Highways, created
by the 1959 session of the Florida Legislature and
assigned to investigate methods of improving op-
eration of the state's most powerful agency, the
State Road Department. Despite warnings that he
was "committing political suicide", Scott Kelly
pursued the investigation impartially. He presided
over 18 public hearings in all parts of the state
where testimony and evidence was presented ex-
posing bribery, inferior construction, profiteering,
inefficiency and poor administration in Florida's
road building program.
In the 1961 legislative session, he introduced 12
hills designed to reorganize the State Road De-
apartment "to get a dollar's worth of roads for every
dollar of our gas tax money."
Scott Kelly has developed an over-all reor-
ganization plan which will place the State Road
Department on an efficient, business basis.
He has been vigorous in his support of quality
education and has co-introduced all three teacher
pay-raise bills since he has been in the Senate
(1957-61-63). In the 1963 session, Kelly co-intro-
duced legislation, giving teachers professional
status, appearing before committees on behalf of
the bill. He was successful. in passing legislation
establishing a Junior College in Polk County.
In the 1963 session he introduced legislation to
create a Department of Municipal Affairs under
one of the existing Cabinet posts so that the State
can assist cities, thereby assuming state responsi-
bilities in this field, discouraging federal encroach-
ment in local government.

The Kelly Family *
sticks together! *
Scott Kelly's family has strong roots in Florida history and
Both his father's and his mother's families are Florida pioneers, *
with the frugality and industriousness that produces a hardy and con-
servative people running heavily through the family background.
The youngest of six children who was left alone at home with
his mother when his father died in a traffic accident, Scott learned
the value of frugality and the importance of thriftiness from his ,
At the age of 14, Scott worked half days to help with family
needs, and his mother managed the family affairs. There developed a *
closeness between the two of them a closeness that was born of
necessity for it required teamwork and an unusual understanding
of their need for each other at a time when elder brothers and sisters
had left home.
Mrs. Kelly takes pride in the fact that she always urged her
youngest son to save and be careful about spending money. His
managerial ability and his trait of fiscal conservatism is a direct result
of her watchfulness over the family funds and Scott's early realization
of the value of a dollar.
Mrs. Kelly is the former Melissa Hunter. She was born in Mad-
ison County. Her father was from Columbia County and most of the "
family's relatives still live in Columbia, Madison, Suwannee and ad-
joining counties. Her uncle, the late Sam Ellison, was tax collector in ,
Madison County for many years.
Scott's father, James Kelly, was born in Madison County. Mem-
bers of the large Kelly family are living in all parts of Florida and *
many still reside in Madison and nearby counties.
James Kelly was the son of the Rev. William Scott Kelly, a
Baptist minister. Scott Kelly is named for his clergyman grandfather. *
Scott Kelly's family background has been punctuated by the
success of his bothers and sisters in business, professional and coam- '
There runs a heavy thread of interest in government and politics
through the activities of Scott Kelly's family. His sister, Dr. Anne Kelly, A
is a professor at the University of South Florida at Tampa. She holds
a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Government and political science
from Florida State University at Tallahassee.
Scott Kelly's brother, Circuit Judge Clifton M. Kelly of Sebring,
has a distinguished record of public service. His first venture in pol-
itics was successful when he was elected Polk County Solicitor. He
won recognition as an aggressive and able prosecutor. He was re-
elected to this position and while serving his second term as solicitor, *
was elected Circuit Judge in the 10th Judicial Circuit. He has since
won re-election to the judgeship, establishing a record of having *
won every office he has sought.
Another of Scott Kelly's brothers, J. Q. Kelly of Quincy, has
devoted his adult years to business and farming activities. He is the A,
owner and operator of three grocery stores and is interested in other
commercial enterprises such as laundromats, etc. He has operated
a farm near Quincy where he conducted a general farming operation *
with emphasis on beef cattle.
Another of. Scott Kelly's sisters, Mrs. Maude Bevis, is one of
Quincy's active businesswomen and is active in community affairs.
She is prominent in church work, PTA and fraternal activities. She
has achieved a fine record in the business world, assisting her hus- A,
band, Harold Bevis, in the operation of grocery stores and a variety
of business ventures.
Mrs. Eleanora Morrow, another of Scott Kelly's sisters, worked
for several years as an employee of Travelers Insurance Co., in Jack-
sonville and achieved recognition as an outstanding employee. She is
now active in the operation of Kelly-Morrow Furniture Exchange in
Jacksonville with her husband, E. B. Morrow, Jr.

As Governor of the State of Florida, I pledge to our people a business administration firmly
based on sound fiscal policies in all the many operations of state government, the biggest business "A
As a businessman, State Senator, and former Mayor of the City of Lakeland, I have the knowl-
edge, experience and determination to accomplish this vital need.
Here are prime goals which I aim to attain as Governor of Florida.
I will insist on the repeal of the unfair increased tax on our auto-truck license togs. I led the 'A
fight against this increase and voted against it in the legislature. I have strongly advocated
repeal of this increase since its passage.
I will oppose and I will veto a sales tax on groceries and medicine.
I will propose to, and urge upon the legislature with all the influence of the Governor's office,
the adoption of a resolution placing a constitutional amendment on the ballot so that the people
may vote on this question which would give local school boards the authority to allow bible read-'
ing and prayer in our public schools. Further, I will lend all assistance possible to Florida's Con-
gressional Delegation in the enactment of a similar amendment to the Federal Constitution.
1 am opposed to repeal of the Homestead Exemption Act.
I will propose to the legislature the repeal of the retail milk price-fixing authority of the Florida 'A
Milk Commission. I will appoint to the Milk Commission those persons who will assure me that they
are opposed to retail price-fixing and are pledged to protection of the milk consumer.
I will develop and coordinate a sound juvenile delinquency control program through the Florida
Children's Commission and will seek help from juvenile authorities, youth groups and other
organizations which work with our youth.
I will provide the leadership and cooperation necessary to achieve excellence in our public
schools and junior colleges, and to obtain the best teachers available and provide them with
adequate salaries. My record stands out on this subject. I co-introduced all three teacher pay- .A
raise bills since I have been in the Senate. (1959-1961-1963)
I will provide the leadership to keep improving our university system so that it can keep pace
with our increasing population. I will work to provide higher education of the calibre that will '
help Florida attract more of the space age industries.
I will work diligently to attract new industry and payrolls to Florida and encourage existing
industries to expand in order to meet the need for jobs for all of our people.
I will promote the establishment of vocational schools which will give all of our people an
opportunity to develop certain skills, crafts and vocations and provide both a better standard of
living and much needed technical manpower and womanpower for industry. This will, at the
some time, greatly reduce the number of drop-outs in high school and increase the number of
high school graduates who will be equipped to go on to higher education.
I will propose to the legislature a plan of reorganization of the State Road Department, pro-
viding continuity from one governor's administration to the next and to more efficiently and
economically develop our road system. By removing the State Road Department from politics
we will then build roads on traffic count rather than on vote count for the winning gubernatorial
To insure proper administration of the secondary rood funds, I will appoint at least
one member of the State Road Board who is now a county commissioner or who has served
as a county commissioner.
I will urge the creation of a Department of Municipal Affairs under one of the existing cabinet
posts to afford our municipalities a direct liaison at the Cabinet level with state government.
I will work diligently to eliminate unfair competition from foreign imported agricultural prod-
ucts which at this time are causing depressed prices in Florida beef and beef product markets.
I will continue to work closely with the Florida citrus industry and will lend every assistance
possible as Governor to promote new markets and new uses for citrus. I will do my utmost to
protect the Florida citrus industry from tariff concessions which would create unfair competition
from foreign citrus imports. As a grove-owner, I am determined that politics will not be injected
in any way, shape, form, or fashion into the administration of the Florida Citrus Commission or
any phase of the citrus industry.
I will support a port development and foreign trade promotion program in cooperation with
the Florida Ports and Foreign Trade Council, so that Florida may realize its full potential as the
home state of this nation's sea ports best situated for increased trade with Latin America and the
European and African continents. The development of Florida's ports should be a joint effort by
government and private enterprise. My program for port development will utilize this theory.
I will give constant attention to the needs of our senior citizens through an active Commission
on Problems of the Aged I will seek to utilize the energies and potential productivity of senior
citizens and retirees by encouraging industries which can offer them part-time employment to
locate in Florida.
I will activate a traffic safety program to combat the high rate of deaths and accidents on
our highways. *
I will call for the creation of a Commission on the Status of Women for the task of assessing the
role of women in business, education, home and community services, with a view to developing a
program which will utilize the potential of our women in these fields and others, particularly the
field of public service. I expect to appoint qualified women to state positions according to
ability, experience and effort without preference or discrimination based on sex.
I will continue to work for fair apportionment of the legislature and our congressional districts.
I will promote revision of Florida's Constitution, so that it may better fill the needs of today's
complex society. I am in favor of establishing the office of Lieutenant Governor with this official
to be elected by the people.
I will protect and uphold the principle of States Rights so that we will be in a position to resist
Federal encroachment or infringement upon the rights of the states. I will insist that we assume
full responsibility for those moral obligations and for those rights reserved to the states.
I will develop a conservation program for water resources and our other natural resources
that will prevent waste of the abundant gifts of nature upon which Florida's future depends.
I will encourage an expanded public library program, utilizing bookmobile facilities and
encourage county governments to support these programs which are vital if our people are to *
maintain the educational advantages they have obtained through our public school system.
Better libraries can alleviate to some degree the shortage of reference books and texts in our
schools. Bookmobile programs will be encouraged where needed.
I will institute a state-wide Sports Advisory Board: the board will be composed of leaders in
the sports field who will donate their time and services to the state. It will be their function to give
true guidance to the growth and encouragement of sports in Florida. Through it, our state will ,
become the Number One Sports center of the nation. Such missing links as professional football,
promotion of all types of water sports and many other voids can be filled by way of their
advice and counsel.
I will insist that the state purchase Florida manufactured products and Florida services when-
ever and wherever possible. I will encourage all local governments to follow this same policy.
I will cooperate with and urge strong support of the Florida Alcoholic Rehabilitation program.
I sincerely believe that the application of sound business principles and conscientious coopera-
tion between the Governor's office, the Cabinet, and the legislature can and will result in the
State of Florida progressing and fulfilling its destiny as the greatest state in the Union. I will
provide the leadership which will accomplish this.

A Personal Message
To All Florida Motorists...
... From Sen. Scott Kelly
Candidate For Governor
When the bill increasing Florida auto-truck tag
license fees came to a vote in the Florida Senate, I led
the debate against this discriminatory tax.
The big-spenders in the legislature were frantic to pass
this tax. They had over-spent... written a bad check...
and after taxing luxuries as much as they dared, were still
millions of dollars short of paying the bill .. millions of
dollars short of making the bad check good.
We killed the bill after heated debate, but it was revived
again and again.
On the third try it passed but not until those of us in the
Senate who were fighting the bill labeled it for what it was
... an unfair tax which discriminated against the motorist.
My position was basically this.
The auto is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity in the
earning of a livelihood for most of us.
Immediately after the legislative session adjourned,
I began working for repeal of the increase in the
auto-truck tag fees.
In August of 1963, I granted the Florida Explorer, the
official publication of the Peninsula Motor Club, an exclu-
sive interview in which I called for repeal of this discrimina-
The Florida Explorer pointed out in bold headlines that
my statement would make repeal of the auto-truck tag in-
crease an issue in the campaign for the governorship. This
forecast was accurate.
When I announced my candidacy for the Governorship
of Florida in Sarasota on Jan. 11, 1964, I made a pledge to
the voters of Florida that when elected, I will work for repeal
of the increase in the license tag fees.
I think the motorists... every auto and truck owner
in the state... and the voters of Florida should have
an opportunity to express themselves on this obnoxious
I am the only candidate who has been demanding
repeal of the auto-truck tag increase since it was ap-
proved by the legislature. I was the first to call for
repeal of this tax upon becoming a candidate, and I
expect to continue my efforts to roll the license fees
back to the original level.
I need your help if we are to be successful in remov-
ing this discriminatory tax increase... and if we are
to protect Florida motorists in the future.

He has asked Larry Libertore, former University of Florida star
quarterback, to direct the program. Libertore is a graduate of the
university with a degree in physical education, an ideal background
for the type of program Kelly has in mind.
Libertore expects to coordinate juvenile delinquency control
efforts with the Children's Commission, Florida Sheriff's Bureau,
Florida Highway Patrol and local law enforcement officials.
Emphasis will be on recreational programs and supervised social
activities with teen centers sponsored by local civic organizations.
