Listen to the voice of experience and check your driver's li-
cense for expiration. ,Check it even though you KNOW you just
bought it last year.
Last Wednesday night, "Barney" Watson of the police depart-
ment dropped by The Star to pick up a paper as he usually does
and noted that it was well into June and that it was time to pull a
monthly driver's license check on the highway.
Barney then jumped onto us for running through one of his
roadblocks a few months before. We assured "Barney" that we
thought he was just being congenial when he waved to us, so we
waved back and kept on going. (He was just stepping out of the po-
lice car to start the check at the time, and we didn't realize he
wanted to check licenses at the time.) But we assured "Barney"
that our license was just as it should be and made the grand gesture
of hauling it out to prove to him, that it would have been a waste
of time to stop in his driver's license check.
We could have sworn that we had purchased the license just
last year, but the date printed thereon made a liar out of us. They
had'been expired since March.
We purchased the license the next day, which is why we are
asking you to check your license .*. now!
And then Tuesday of this week, we saw a well-known local lady
down at the police station taking her driver's test. She had let her
license expire, also 13 months ago. If your license has been ex-
pired over 11 months you must take the driver's test. '
We see by the Times-Union that J. A. Maloney of the Apalachi-
cola Times has taken his beef against the duPont's to the House
Banking Committee, and told the same old story he has told in his
newspaper many times ... .that the duPont's are getting by at the
expense of the public here in Northwest Florida.
We also see where members of the Committee told Mr. Maloney
the same thing we. did in this column some weeks back.
In his claims that open land was not assessed for enough on the
tax rolls, Rep. W. E. Brock, R-Tenn., and others suggested it is nor-
mal in many areas for land to be assessed at much less than its
market value. We suggested this same thing to Maloney by virtue
of the fact that such land ownership made possible other financial
attributes to the area which far offset any so-called "favorable treat-
ment" bn land valuations.
Some committee members also took issue with him on the com-
pany not wanting to sell certain lands now producing pulpwood,
saying the company had the right to use its land as it saw fit and
that it was not illogical for a firm owning a paper mill to produce
its own pulpwood.
We don't know how Mr. Maloney obtained' the opportunity to
appear before this group with his allegations, but we, are; satisfied
to see that even those having an impersonal view of the situation
realize that the "giving" of the duPonts in this area far exceeds the

City Makes Offer
For Gulf Oil Co.
About a month ago, the City
Commission instructed Clerk J. B.
Williams to write to the Gulf Oil
Corporation with reference to the
purchase of their waterfront pro-
perty and docks here in Port St.
This step was taken after the
Sinclair Oil Company offered the
sale of their docks and warehouse
here to the City. It was pointed out
that Sinclair did not own enough
dockage to berth a ship, so the
City decided to see if the old oil
terminal property was for sale.
Tuesday night, Clerk Williams
read a letter from Gulf Oil stating
that they would sell the property
and what was left of the docks, but
left it up to the City to make an
offer on the property.
Commissioner' T o m Coldewey
said the. property had been pur-
chased by the company and others
operating the terminal for the
price of $4500 per acre. He made
the suggestion that the City offer
$45,000 for the nine-plus acres of
land and the waterfront.
It was pointed out by Commis-
sioner Nedley that the docks were
all but unusable and shouldn't
have much of a sale value.
All were in accord with the sug-
gestion and Mayor Hannon in-
strutted Clerk Williams to make
the offer to Gulf.
TRAFFIC LIGHT PLACED AT
CORNER OF MAIN and AVE. C
Commissioner I. C. Nedley made
a motion Tuesday night before the
City Commission to place a traffic
light at the corner of Avenue C
and Main Street. Nedley said that
the corner is travelled heavily, is
dangerous, and that several acci-
dents have occurred there recently.
Commissioner Coldewey seconded
the motion, .and the Board voted
uninamously for the installation.

Engineers Give Report On
City Water, Sewer Needs
Plant Pushed To Keep Up With Demand
The City Commission was told Tuesday night that an
addition would have to be made to the City's water treatment
plant, if it was expected to maintain an adequate supply of
the good, soft water that the City has become accustomed
to in the past 10 years.
George Childers, representative of Smith and Gillespie,
Engineers, of Jacksonville, outlined a specific program of
enlargement for the City to maintain an adequate supply of
good water, even during the drought seasons. These sea-
sons in the past, have caused a burden on the water plant,
greater than it is able to bear at its present capacity.
The engineers, who had b'een
hired by the City for a study of that the City can do one of the
the situation, recommended that recommended improvements with-

recommended to the City of Port
St. Joe Tuesday that several addi-
tions be made to the sewer system
to make it operate more efficiently
The engineers offered praise for
the condition of sewer facilities
now operated by the City and sug-
gested they could be improved by
increasing the rate of flow through
main lines to the treatment plant.
The engineers recommended that
an additional flow line and lift
pumps be installed at the 16th and
Long Avenue lift station to double
the rate of flow from the most hea-
vily populated section of the city.
At present, the lift station is over-
worked because of friction caused
by the 10-inch line from the lift
station to eighth street where sew-
age enters a large gravity flow line.
Another lift pump and additional
flow line would more than double
the capacity by cutting down on
friction loss, according to the en-
The engineers also recommended
the same installation for the First
Street lift station, which pushes
virtually all sewage collected in
the city toward the treatment plant.'
Both southern lift stations feed
sewage into this lift station.
The report showed that the dis-
posal was doing an effective job
operating as a primary station, but
would do even a better job with
additional digester capacity. They
recommended a larger digester in

A POOR SENSE OF VALUES
Under the first billion dollar spending bill in Florida his-
tory many facets of government benefitted while Burns' hold-
the-line on taxes policy was adhered to ... but teachers in our
public school system were not among the benefactors.
A bill which would have taken $51 million from the state
sales tax revenue and given it to county school systems, 80
per cent of which would have been pledged for teachers' pay
raises, was doomed in committee.
Many expenditures in the $1.1 billion budget, it would
appear, contain less merit than did this teacher raise pro-
posal. We will not endeavor to single these out as everyone
is aware that few expenditures are more meritorious than
those furthering our educational programs.
The pay scale for teachers in the state of Florida, as well
as nationwide, needs reappraising lest we lose qualified teach-
ers to other and better paying jobs. Dade county teachers,
only last week, were granted a tentative increase, subject to
approval by the school board, after threatening a boycott of
While the scale in Florida is better than that in many
other states, some teachers are forced to "moonlight" to sup-
plement their salary. Their plight across the nation has been
evidenced by strikes for higher wages and more and more
are being forced to organize to uphold their rightful demands.
Qualified teachers and improved school systems are the
best investments possible in the future of our state and
nation. Our many fine physical school plants, in which mil-
lions of dollars of tax money have been invested, are only as
good ts the teachers which staff them. Our dedicated teach-
ers must not be forced to abandon their profession for eco-
nomic reasons .. our educational systems must be revamped
to assure that this does not happen. The cost posed, should
this occur, would be far greater than taxes necessary to fore-
The cost-of-living index, the accepted guide line for
across-the-board raises in our major industries, continues
rising steadily and applies to teachers and' others as well
whoseplight, unfortunately, has been ignored.
This poor sense of values must be readjusted. Our teach-
ers are valued public servants and are entitled to compensa-
tion commensurate with their training, skill and ability.
RIGHT-TO-WORK AND UNION MEMBERSHIP
The drive is under way to cause Congress to repeal sep-
tion 14 (b) of the Taft-Hartley Act, which permits the states
to pass Right-to-Work laws prohibiting compulsory unionism
as a condition of employment. In the 19 states which have
done so, every worker voluntarily decides whether to join or
not, and is protected from coercion by either the union or the
The unions argue that Right-to-Work is, in effect, a
union-busting tactic and is designed to play havoc with union
membership and the effectiveness of the unions in obtaining
benefits for labor.
In the light of that, some information provided by James
R. Watson, Specialist in Labor Relations, Legislative Refer-
ence Service, Library of Congress, is extremely significant.
He says: "For the period 1958 to 1962, at least, the trend in
(AFL-CIO) membership in major union states without Right-
to-Work laws is more unfavorable than in Right-to-Work
states." Specifically, union membership went up in 40 per
cent of the Right-to-Work states, as against 30 per cent in
the non-Right-to-Work states.
One reason for this, perhaps, is that the unions must do
a better job where membership is voluntary rather than com-
pulsory. They must sell themselves on the basis of service
and make joining up a more attractive proposition to the
worker. And they must be far more responsive to the wishes
of the rank-and-file.
Finally, if a man can't hold a job without joining and
paying dues to an organization, irrespective of his wishes in
the matter, an absolutely basic freedom is denied him. There
is no room for that kind of coercion in a truly free society.
WHAT AMERICA NEEDS
David Lawrence is one of the many thoughtful writers
who aie gravely concerned with the government's continued
deficit spending. This, for a time, may help to create and
mantaitn eeonomlo boois. Buit i the long run, it can be the
source of runaway inflation and fiscal disaster.
In a recent U. n. News & World Report column, Mr. Law-
rence said: "What Amfietica needs is a comprehensive pro-
gram of expense cutting, along with a stimulus to business
which' will produce more tax receipts. Such a plan cannot be
confined to a single year. There ought to be at least a five-
year look ahead, with a program for a balanced budget which
would be accepted as the reasonable reflection of a sound
trend in Government finance.
"The American people would welcome an end to the
deficit era-a. total deficit of $40.8 billion in the last 10 years,
with $30 billion of this piling up in the last five years. The
official figure for the public debt now is close to $317 billion.
It's the biggest debt that any nation has ever faced in the
history of the world."

Ernest Construction Company of
Mobile is the contractor and the
project is scheduled for comple-
tion during october of this year.
It is proposed that the plant will
furnish direct and indirect employ-
ment for about 200 people in the
Apalachicola area. Products will in-
clude frozen shrimp and eventual-
ly oysters, fish and crab meat. The
plant will also operate haul out and
repair facilities' for deep sea fish-
It is expected that government,
state and local officials will'par-

S. S. Check Ready
When You Retire
Most Port St. Joe area residents
get their Social Security checks
without delay when they retire, ac-
cording to John V. Carey, District
Manager of the Panama City Social
Security office. He said these per-
sons planned for their retirement
by checking with the Social Secur-
ity office ahead of time.
A claim for payment cannot be
made until the worker is within
three months of retirement age.
However, the Social Security office
can advise people of any age what
they will need when they apply for
payments in later years.
According to Carey, "Every per-
son claiming Social Security retire-
ment checks must furnish evidence
of his age." A birth certificate is
not necessarily required. Many peo-
ple do not have birth certificates.
In many cases, Bible records, a vot-
er's registration, insurance policies,
or almost any old record can be
used as evidence of age.
"It's also helpful if a person has
evidence of his past year's earn-
ings," Carey said. This is usually a
copy of his W-2 form; or a copy of
last year's tax return, if the per-
son was self-employed.

"FIFTY PERCENT SERVICE
St. Petersbury, Fla.-M. T. Dixon
of the Florida Department of Vet-
erans Affairs, stated that VA regu-
lations now provide that an addi-
tional compensation for dependents
payable to veterans who are fifty
percent or more disabled because
of a service connected disability,
will be payable from the effective
date of the increased evaluation to
fifty percent or more if proof of
dependency is received within 60
days from date of VA notification
of increased disability.
This change was previously con-
sidered as precluding payments for
any period prior to June 8, 1960.
Under a new construction, in-
creased payments because of de-
pendents, may now be paid, Dixon
says, retroactively to the effective
date of any rating made on or after
June 8, 1960.
Dixon warns that it behooves all
veterans having any type of claim
with the Veterans Administration
to be sure that all marital evidence,
birth certificates, etc., are current
and up to date in his claim folder,
not for the veteran's benefit, but
for the future benefit of his widow
and dependent children.
For a determination as to wheth-
er your veteran's file is up to date
or not ,it was suggested by Dixon
that veterans contact their local
Veteran County Service Officer, or
write him at P. O. Box 1437, St.

NOTARY PUBLIC COMMISSION
FEE RAISED FROM $5 TO $10
Tallahassee Secretary of State
Tom Adams today called public at-
tention to a new law which raises
the fee for notary public commis-
sions in Florida from $5 to $10.
, The increase, said Adams, is re-
quired under an act passed by the
1965 Legislature. The act became
law on June 4.
Florida has some 75,000 notaries
public, each of whom is commis-
sioned for a four-year term. Adams
emphasized that the fee increase
will not affect these notaries until
they come up for commission re-
newals during the next four years.
Approximately 2,000 new notary
commissions and renewals are is-
sued each month by the Secretary

SWEET SLEEP, Air conditioning makes a big difference in personal efficiency and
health. You have it in your office. Don't you need it-even more-in your home? What
does:a hot, sleepless night cost-the next day, on the job? An electric air conditioner
transforms your home into an island of cool comfort. Today, even modest new homes
'feature electric heat pumps for central cooling and heating. But there are many elec-
trical ways to air condition older homes-or just one room. Many dealers and contrac-
tors offer budget payments, too. See yours now. Sleep well!

ent lives. Freedom is unknown to
the people living in countries dom-
inated by communism.
The underlying principles of
Americanism is liberty. An individ-
ual has the right to act, speak, to
move about, to criticize, and to as-
semble with others if he does not
infringe upon similar rights of
other people. Unlike Communism's
principles, the right of private
property is one of the basic prin-
ciples of Americanism.
America has free enterprise,
this means that an individual has
the right to engage in an under-
taking of his own choosing and to
carry on his business or profession
in accordance with his own desires.
In making a living he is free to
exercise his talent in any enter-
prise where his brains, abilities
and training will produce best re-
sults. This is one concept of the
fundamental concepts of our Amer-
ican way of life. Free enterprise,
has been a strong factor in promot-
ing the success of our nation.
Understanding of Americanism
and Communism is vitally import-
ant if we are to defend and main-
tain our way of life and spread it
through out the world.
