A Citizen Speaks Out
To a society as large and diverse as this one, large
government is a necessity._ To a nation as strong as this
one, strong government is indispensable. There are many
things that can be done only by government and best by
There are other things, however, that can be done
only by the private organizations and individual citizens
working together and best by them.
There is a feature in the nature of government that
keeps it from accomplishing many things that need to be
done. An understanding of that factor both inside and
outside of government would do much to explain' the fre-
quent frustration caused when well-intentioned programs
do not live up to expectations.
The feature is that no matter how positive a govern-
ment wants to be and no matter how positive the state-
ments of its officials are, its efforts are often negative in
Government can pass laws against theft, but no -law
can make a people want to be honest. Government can
pass laws forbidding the abridgment of freedom of reli-
gion, but no law can make a people want to worship God.
Government can pass laws against drunkenness, but no
law can make a people want sobriety. .
Even in its attempt to assure basic civil rights to all
citizens, which appears positive, government can only
pass laws against denying a member of any race the right
to live wherever he wants and to work wherever he quali-
fies. No law can make families, neighborhoods, employ-
ers or workers want to share what they have with mem-
bers of another race.
iGovernment can and does try to stop people from do-
ing undesirable things, but it cannot make them want
to do desirable things.
The real danger to freedom today, as well as the cause i
of much frustration, anger and bewilderment, is that too
many people are looking to the government to grant free-
dom, assure rights, build prosperity and create brother-
hood"--things no government in" history has ever been'
equipped to do alone. Many people expect the government
to do what only they can do for themselves.
Our nation faces an apparent widespread deteei6ra-
tioli in personal integrity, seen in practically eyery seg-"
ment Mid level of society, from the repairman who does -
shoddy work to the factory worker who gives no
thought to the. quality of the product he is making .
the-clerk who fdkes office stamps the salesman who
pads'.his expense account the manager who cheats
o6i his taxes ". the attorney who recommends an un-
justified lawsuit .'to the physician who might expand

self and his patient. It also is seen atfevery level of gov-
ernment, from censure proceedings in our highest legis-
lative bodies to a city where national guard troops are,
mustered to prevent election abuses.
Government alone cannot solve this problem. There
already are laws against all, of these things. The solu-
tion can come only from a heightened desire by all peo-
ple to be honest themselves and a willingness to insist on
integrity in their neighbors, associates and elected officials.
Leaders in government understandably see it as their
duty to do for the people of, this country whatever they
believe, or whatever they are told by citizen groups, is
not already being done equitably, effectively and effi-
ciently by the private sectors of society.
When private citizens abdicate their responsibilities
and ask the government to do a job, government responds
in the only way it can: it passes more laws and usually
appropriates more money. And every time another law
is passed, it means another small or large restriction on
As citizens, in other words, we have this choice when
facing a situation that needs correcting. We can do it
Ourselves; or we can ask the government to pass a law

that says we must not fail to do it-and that sets up an
administrative mechanism'to enforce the prohibition. The
former choice is by far the best way to meet a situation,
at least from the standpoint of economy and independence;
and often from the standpoint of speed, efficiency and
effectiveness, depending on the nature of the problem.
The government will be called on to help. Its resour-
ces and responsibilities certainly cannot and should not be
overlooked. But the initiative, leadership -and work
should remain in the hands of the citizens.
THE GOVERNOR STATES HIS CASE
Governor Claude Kirk proposed before the Florida
Legislature Monday that the state sales tax be raised to
five per cent with groceries and medicines exempted and
that approval of the sales tax increase be approved or
disapproved by the people of the State of Florida.
The Governor has, in effect, said, "let the people
of the State of Florida decide whether or not they are
willing to pay extra money for education".
In the past, the Florida Education Association has
worked on the premise, that the people are willing to pay
*more tax for the schools. They have used in their pub-
lic relations work the fact that the citizens are "willing
and able to pay".
Governor Kirk wants to see if this is so.
It has not been a well kept secret that Governor Kirk
has favored this approach, with its attendant referendum.
The FEA has, for the past few weeks rattled its resigna-
tions should the "matter of proceeding with quality edu-
cation be delayed further by referendums".
Governor Kirk must have felt they had a legitimate
claim for haste because he called for his plan to go into
effect on March 15. This would eliminate any delays in
waiting for a referendum. But if the referendum,
which Kirk called for May 7 (the day of the first Demo-
cratic primary when most people will vote) the newly
incurred tax increases would be lifted on June 30.'
The bug has been placed on the back of John Q. Citi-
The question in our mind is this. Since Kirk has elim-
inated any undue delay in instigating a, new program;
since he has called for a positive program, running al-
most parallel with FEA demands; since Kirk also worked
in his desire for a referendum; what will the FEA do if'
;the people of Florida vote down'the t#a increase?
Now there's one to chew on,, I

was delighted to find a heart-warm-
ing account of "Why Lincoln Grew
a Beard" in the February issue of
the Reader's Digest.
I doubt if you will find mention
of Grace Bedell of upstate New
York, an 11 year old admirer, who.
was directly responsible for the
President's decision to adorn him-
self yith whiskers, in any book
about Lincoln, but it was a letter
from this youthful little lady that
caused Lincoln to consider a beard.
Studying the first photograph
she had ever 'seen, a picture of
Abraham Lincoln brought home
from the fair by her father, she be-
came distressed by the hollow
cheeks and gaunt appearance of
her hero. She visioned the face
adorned with whiskers that would
hide such features.
Chewing her pencil she sat in her
attic room and write a letter to
Mr. A. B. Lincoln telling him that
in her opinion if he were to grow
a beard it would improve his ap-
pearance, assuring him that his
looks would be much improved and
since all ladies of that day admired
whiskers it would endear him to
them, causing them to urge their
husbands to vote for him.
When Grace's letter arrived at
Lincoln's campaign headquarters
secretaries sorting the mail were
about to throw it in the waste
basket when Lincoin himself en-
tered the room and asked to see the
bothersome letter from some un-
known little girl.
Both amused and impressed, the
great man instructed his secretary
to write the yound lady express-
ing his appreciation for her inter-
est and suggestion which he would
give careful consideration.
Series of "Town
Claude R. Kirk, Jr. will launch a
series of "Town Meetings" in
Panama City today.
The Governor plans to spend the
day in each of fourteen Florida
cities during February and March.
On each day, the Governor will
schedule meetings with business
and civic leaders, and he will con-
tinue the series of five-minute in-
terviews with the public. Governor
Kirk will block out a period of time
for these five-minute meetings,
which will, be held in a mobile
"home located near the central core
of each city.
The Governor will hold a news
conference ,in each city, and he
'will also be available for individual
news interviews as time permits.
Each day will conclude with a
"Family Night with the Governor"
fish-fry or barbeque, which will be
open to the public.
The cities and dates scheduled
for February and March are:
Panama City, February 1; Fort
Pierce, February 9; Naples, Febru-
ary 13; Fort Lauderdale, Febru-
ary 14; Jacksonville, February 2';
Cocoa Beach, February 23;' Lake-

By the .time you read this, the special session of the Florida
Legislature will be under way .attempting to solve the "crisis
in education in Florida".
It is our hope that both sides of the matter will go into the
program with an open mind and interest ONLY in the schools and
school children of the State of Florida, keeping in mind what the
taxpayer can afford to pay.
It is time now to forget the agrandizement of any person, par-
ty or group in the state. Grown men should act like grown men
and not like the children we hope to educate. This is not aimed
at anyone in particular, but to everybody involved from Gov-
ernor Kirk to the Florida Education Association. Both have been
far too adamant in their wants and wishes.
And speaking of wants and wishes It is our hope that our
"wants"; and those of the FEA and the Governor also; will be
put in the background and the "needs" of the educational-and
we stress the word educational-progress of our children be upper- '
most in our planning. As someone said this week, there is a big,
big difference in what we need and what we must have.
But, without trying to be pessimistic, we fear that both sides
will get to feuding and fussing again before the session is over,
about some inconsequential thing that has nothing at all to do
with providing facilities for a student to learn.
We saw a report the other day that Gulf County is one of
two counties in the State of Florida that is losing population.
If memory serves me correctly, I believe the other county was
We are accustomed to seeing reports of Northwest Florida
counties losing population. But in the past these reports have
listed only such counties as Calhoun, Washington and Holmes,
along with Liberty. These counties were not listed in the
recent study made by a division of the University of Florida.
We are wondering where Gulf is losing population. More and
more houses are being built in Port St. Joe every year. City
records show that approximately $100,000 was spent last year in
new homes in the City Limits of Port St. Joe alone. And yet,
there are very few housing vacancies in the City.
Wewahitchka seems to maintain its population, with a few
new homes being built there each year also.
So where is the population exodus centered in Gulf?
We think these reported facts are based on school enrollment
which has, indeed, shown a small decrease in enrollment over
last year. -But, we must remember that the last of the bumper
crop of "war babies" graduated: last year and was the major
reason-for school enrollment showing the very slight decrease that
it has. ': '
; The only proper" way to determine population is to count.,'
noses, and we believe. that a head count will show that Gulf
County is not losing population maybe not gaining but
not losing either.
Did the Jaycees call on you last week for you to fill out an.
"opinion sheet" as to the quality of services offered in Port St. Joe
along xitHi your suggestions for improvements? We think this
type survey is a good thing. 1A will serve to point out the short-
comings of our city. Deficiencies are so hard to see if we look
at them everyday. We more or less come to accept them at face
value without any thought for corrections.
) We plan to look at the Jaycee report on this project and do
a .little reporting to you. The results of the survey should prove
interesting, to say the least. i

Lower In 1967
TALLAHASSEE The first
reduction of highway deaths for
Florida in six years was an-
nounced today by the Florida
Highway Patrol after totaling
the fatalities for 1967.
Colonel H. N. Kirkman, direc-
tor of the Department of Public
Safety, said, "There were 1,773
traffic deaths in 1967 compared
with 1,819 persons killed in 1966.
This is the first year since 1961
that the fatality count has been
lower than in a previous year."
The reduction occurred while
the miles traveled and the num-
ber of licensed drivers increased.
The Department's records for the
past 20 years show there have
been a total of 23,658 lives lost
and 880,922 persons injured in
Colonel Kirkman, said, "These
figures would indicate that while
we have managed a reduction in
fatalities in 1967, the tragic toll
from these wrecks shows that
safe driving is still a major con-
cern for every citizen in our
State, and unless we drive de-

NOTES FROM THE
Gideon Levano had wealth and
luxury but was a lonely person.
His wife and children had been
killed by the Nazis: his was now a
life, of indifference, lovelessness
and bitterness. His efforts inclined,
late in life, toward finding a new
purpose for living. Trying devel-
oped hope, hope brought compas-
sion for others and, having re-
lieved the sufferings of another hu-
man being, Gideon became a well
man. "The Last of the Levanos"
by Maurits -Wertheim is found in
your public library.
Isom Dart, freed from the bond-
age of slavery, obeyed his former
master's advice to seek a better
life "across the river". He wanted
to go where one man's skin was as
good as another. The search was
long and hard. The final episode
occurred on the banks of the Pur-
gatoire River where he faced his
enemy at last and found that final
freedom that had been promised
him. "One More River to Cross"
is written by Will Henry and is in
your public library.
"The Peach Stone" is the lead
story of a collection by Paul Gal-
lico. The arrangement of the book
features stories of childhood,
-youth, maturity and old age. The
settings, backgrounds and subject
matter of these stories are varied
through there is action in each one.
From the pen of a master, this
book can be found at your public
