from Burns, Kirkley & Williams
of Auburn, Alabama, prime con-
tractors for the job, which stated'
that they would move on the
job site and begin work on Mon-
a day, July 29.

picked up only four hits in los-
ing to Chattahoochee.
Estimated attendance, at the-
Monday evening games was 350.
Attendance at the Tuesday, eve-!
ning games was estimated at 250.
Chattahoochee and Graceville

wasn't completed at press ;time.
* Port St. Joe will play, the:win-
ner of last night's game this

Superintendent of Public In-
struction,.Marion Craig said yes
terday that work is now under
way drawing up a budget for the
Gulf Couoty School System for
the 1968-69 fiscal year. Work on'
the new budget is expected to
be completed within the next
week or rtwo.
Craig said that the new bud-
get will reflect a major differ-'
ence to budgets in the past. He
said the' new budget would in
all likelihood reflect about a
two mill decrease over last'
year's levy. Craig noted that "the
trend is -upwbard but increased
state participation school financ-
ing will allow us to reduce our
millage for thewnext fiscal year."
At present the Board of Pub-
lic Instruction is levying 14.11.
mills in ad.valorem taxes.

Summer Recreation Happening
All of us here in Port St. Joe offer our hearty wel-
come to the Dixie Youth baseball teams playing their
District Tournament in our city during this week.
Port St. Joe has been host to tournaments in the past,
but none so large as this one now in progress. While
we welcome our visitors, we must also say that we hope
Port St. Joe will come out winner after the play is over.
When you stop and think about it, Port St. Joe is al-
ready a "winner" in its little boy baseball program. In a
ten year span, the program has grown from nothing to a
large program that furnishes baseball recreation for any
boy between the ages of seven and 13 who wish to partici-
pate., Usually, with programs such as this, the enthusiasm
dwindles away after a while, but the boys baseball program
in Port St. Joe has grown, rather than dwindled. There
are probably not many towns the size of Port St. Joe in
this nation that provides so comprehensive a baseball pro-
gram for small boys as does Port St Joe.
While we are at it, we should put in a good word or
two about Port St. Joe's entire summer recreation pro-
gram, which is being jointly sponsored this year by the
City and the Board of Public Instruction.
The School Board has struggled along for years try-
ihg to provide some sort of supervised summer recreation.
They have performed a commendable effort in the past.
Their efforts, however, were under-financed and under-
manned for maximum effect.
The City has neglected to get into the recreation busi-
.ness in the past, due to a lack of money to do it right.
The Stac House was built, but that was about as much as
the City could manage. Everyone realized that here was
a facility such as most cities our size want, but after it
was built, it took personnel the City did not have to oper-
After the City and the School Board decided to pool
their resources, things began to happen in summer rec-
reation around Port St. Joe.. We applaud the effort. We
hope it is the prophet of better things to come in succeed-
Don't Forget 1948
'Millions of Americans who will vote in the November
presidential election are too young to remember the humil-
iation of the public opinion pollsters in 1948. Since at least
two candidates this "year are openly relying on the polls
to win them the nomination we thought it might be a pro-
per precaution to review what happened just 20 years ago
The story actually begins in 1946, when voters in an
off-year .Congressional election turned out dozens of Dem-
ocrat Congressmen, giving the Republican Party control
of both houses of Congress for the first time in 18 years.
The gloom of Democrat Party leaders was exemplified
by Senator J. William Fulbright, who seriously proposed
that President Harry Truman resign from office, after
nominating a Republican Secretary of State who would
succeed him. "It will place the responsibility of running
St e Government on one party, and prevent a stalemate,"
said Fulbright. Whereupon, President Truman called Ful-
bright "half-bright"-a label which has been widely (and
erroneously) attributed to the late Senator Joe McCarthy.
In any event, in that memorable 1948 campaign, there
were four candidates contending for the Presidency, Tru-
man for the Democrats, Dewey for the Republicans, Henry
A. Wallace for the Progressive Party and then Democrat
Senator Strom Thurmond for the "Dixiecrats".
The major public opinion polls in 1948 were those
conducted by Gallup, Roper and Crossley. And they were
unanimous in predicting the election of Thomas E. Dewey.
Two months before election day, Mr. Roper wrote that
"my whole inclination is to predict the election of Thomas
E. Dewey by a heavy margin and devote my time and
effort to other things." The final Gallup poll,. released
shortly before election day, showed Dewey getting 49.5
percent of the vote, a4d Truman 44.5 percent. "News-
week" polled 5Q of- the nation's leading political-.pundits
who, without exception, predicted that Dewey would be
elected." Crossley flippantly dismissed a, suggestion that
the polls could be wrong:
So what happened? Truman won 49.3 percent of
the popular vote. Dewey picked up a mere 44.9 percent
-an almost precise reversal of the projections of the,
final Gallup poll.
Mr. Rockefeller and Mr. McCarthy, who put such
stock in'what polls show, may not be able to remember
1948. But the voters will do well to remember.
The public opinion polls can be as totally wrong in
1968 as they were in 1948.

Wallace Displays Intelligence
In the past we have never been what you would call
"a card-carrying Wallace supporter". We have admired
the man for his stands he has taken on the rights of states
to guide their own destiny; in agreement with his philoso-
phy of being against the socialistic trend type of Govern-
ment we have today; in agreement with his statements
that a man should make his own way by his own initia-
tive-not by legislation and handouts; and thoroughly in
agreement with his beliefs that lawlessness is going to
ruin this nation if allowed to continue at its present pace. I
We have come to admire his quick mind on his few
Sunday noon panel show appearances on TV.
We look beyond his usual monologue he puts out on
each appearance, stating his platform. These things he
has memorized. But when the panelists shoot from the
hip with a loaded question on which they have been think-,
ing for weeks and Wallace gives a good sensible answer,
off the cuff, we admire his thinking ability.
We're not saying we are going to vote for Wallace.
We will wait until the Conventions are over and see who
I is nominated before making up our mind. But even if
we don't vote for Wallace whether he wins or not. .
we still admire his quick mind and sensible answers to
the "problem questions" of our day.

the capital. Through the summer
the Bolsheviks, by their persis-
tent propaganda, had been driv-
ing the war interest out of the
public mind and substituting the
discussion of ideas of Karl Marx.
Their attempt to take the capital
on July 17 was defeated by the
patriotism of the Preobrazhensky
Regiment and the belated oppo-
sition of the Soviet. News of
the disastrous rout of the Rus-
sian 'forces at Tarnopol also
roused patriotic mortification;
evidence of' dealings between
German agents and leading Bol-
sheviks was published, and for
the next two weeks the Provi.
sional Government would have
been generally supported in any
reasonable use which it had
made its victory.
But just now most of the Li-
beral (Cadets) Ministers resign-
ed in protest at what they re-
garded as the concession of too
great measure of independence
to Ukraine and, containing now
a large proportion of Socialists,
the Government was itself in two
minds between the war against
Germany andathe war on capital-
Trotsky was arrested and Le-
nin had to go into hiding, but
the Bolsheviks worked at their
organization harder than ever,
especially trying to secure pre-
dominance in the military com-
mittees which had now been es-
tablished throughout the army.
Difference of opinion had arisen
between the commander-in-chief
of the Russian army who had
re-established the death penalty
F at the front, and Kerensky, who
hesitated to ,;restore it in the
rear. There was also trouble be-
tween the Denmbratic Confer-
ence and the Vor-Parliament.
Caught between two fires, Ke-
rensky had set free the arrested
Bolsheviks. They knew their own
minds and went their own way
to plan while everyone else dis-
cussed and argued. The war of
words continue for some
months. The Vor-Parliament was
driven out; of the palace. The
Fortress of Peter and Paul and
the battleship "Aurora" shelled
the Winter Palace and the Ad-
miralty. Most of the Ministers
were taken prisoner and lodged
in the Fortress.
In Moscow a small band of
military cadets made a plucky
defense of the Kremlin, but
were overpowered. The comman-
der-in-chief was ordered to open
negotiations for an .armistice;
he refused and on the arrival of
the new Bolshevik commander,
one Lt. Krylenko, he was mur-
dered and mutilated.
The Bolsheviks were that
group of Marxists which aimed
at the socalization by means of
seizure of power and a dictator-
ship of factory workers but ac-
tually, as they had always insist-
ed with the greatest frankness,
of a few intellectuals.
The 'views .and ,predictions of
Marx himself and what opinions
he stqle from others were
founded on a series of theoreti-
cal deductions, intended for in-
dustrial countries. The Bolshe-
viks had to apply them to Rus-
sia, an agricultural country.
They were now going to take
theory and attempt to make it
practical, in a country where
the factory population was only
eleven million out of 175 mil-

Did you ever notice how the dialects within our nation are
fading away? Now and then you will hear a pronounced Southern
drawl arid the Kennedy's revived the New England twang.
One hardly ever hears a Western drawl anymore.
Maybe it's TV.
This could very well be, because. on TV most everyone talks
alike. It's very likely this could be having an effect on our diction.
But while other dialects fade away one can still detect the per-
son from Virginia, even if they have lived away from the state for
years. You can still hear the "hoose", "aboot", etc.
You can learn all kinds of things when you read occasionally.
For instance' during the past few days we have learned that
birds are weather prophets
One writer says that it is now dog days.. He makes this as a
definite statement and bases his beliefs on the fact that the mock-.
ing birds have quit singing in his yard. But then, when one looks.
for the mocking bird to see whether he, is singing or not, it's
hard to miss the eternal rain that has been peltng down periodi-
cally for the last week to 19 days.
Another Writer says the birds will tell you it it is going to
rain all day after it once gets started.
This writer says that birds must feed sometime during the
day. If the rain is merely a shower and it will fair off later, the -
bird will wait until later to feed. If the bird is out scrouging
for food in a downpour, it is going to rain all day, and he just
has to get wet because he must eat.

So, now Frenchie and I are grandparents!
Our daughter up in Georgia had a baby boy the mother day and
we had to wait until Saturday and Sunday to go up and take a look.
He was a tiny little feller. He could sleep in a shoe box. We
don't remember any of ours being that tiny, but they probably
were. Frenchie rocked, fed and changed the new grandbaby all day
Saturday and Sunday until he was seasick, billious and chafed.
We'll keep the grandson, but we are disinheriting our daughter
for making us grandparents at such a tender age.
England had better watch out or they will have the "Boston
Tea Party" all over again.
Saturday, some "students" pretty nearly went too far and stir-
red, up a shooting war between the U. S. and Britian.
They stoned and rioted around the Playboy Club in London.
Now those students in England, France, Russia or wherever,
can stone, burn, loot and pillage American Embassies all they want,
without fear of reprisal from genial Uncle Sam. They can burn
the flag and, Uncle will merely turn the other cheek but don't
mess with those Playboy Clubs or you will be in for some serious

Improvements At Glidden
SStart Work On August First
Fractionating towers rising
well in excess of 100 feet at the
Glidden Chemicals Plant in Port
St. Joe have Just completed an
annual maintenance overhaul,
and will soon be put back on
stream. Running continuously,
these towers produce many thou-
sands of tons of tall oil deriva-
tives annually. During the plant
shutdown through July, just-
erected new equipment costing
a half million dollars was tied
into the existing plant. Plant
officials state that this new
equipment will be put into op-
eration when the plant resumes
production on August 1. The
new equipment consists of an ad-
ditional 100 foot tall fractionat-
ing tower plus new plant heat-
suppling unit. The additional
equipment when also running,
is expected to upgrade further
the tall oil chemical's quality.
Glidden's Port St. Joe plant
represents one of seven major
companies producing tall oil
chemicals, two of which are in
Florida. Crude tall oil, the raw
material, comes out of pine tree
wood as a by-product when pulp
mills convert pine wood into
kraft paper. This crude oil was
discovered in Norway in the
early 1900's, and called "TALL.
OLJO" (Norwegian for "oil of
the pine". When the processing
of this material began in the

Even if you haven't lived in

a regular voter here, you may still
be able to vote for President and,
Vice-President in the November 5
That's the word from Secretary
of State Tom Adams, Florida's
hief election officer.
Adams called attention to a new
constitutional amendment which
allows newcomers from other states
o vote in Florida for President
and Vice-President even though
hey don't meet the one-year resi-
[ency requirement to register as a
voter in this State. To qualify, such
persons must still be registered,

Adams emphasized ,that the new
aw permits voting only for Presi-
lent and Vice-President. It does
lot apply to other officers on the
The Secretary of State estimat-
ed that between 100,000 and 150,
000 residents would be eligible to
take advantage of the new law,
which was approved by the people
in 1966 and is effective for the
first time this year.
:To vote under this law new re-
sidents should apply with their
County Supervisor of Elections
between September 21 and October
5 for special ballots.
in their application, they-must
take an oath stating that they are
currently qualified voters in the
state from which they have moved,
that they are how bona fide resi-
dents of Florida. Then they must
authorize the Florida Supervisor
to cancel their previous registra-
As soon as the Supervisor re-
ceives confirmation of this cancel-
lation, the new resident is eligible
to vote a special ballot for Presi-
dent and Vice-President.
New residents who could not re6
gistf-in their former state be,
cause they were underage also will
be permitted to vote for President
and Vice-President if they have
reached the age of 21.
"This is a.great step forward in
our election system," Adams said.
"No longer are newcomers to our
State denied the right to vote in
our most important election. I urge
all new residents to take advantage
of this new law." -.
