Chapman Not Particularly
Happy With Reorganization
Representative Joe Chapman
told the Port St. Joe Lions Club
Tuesday that he was, not partic--
ularly, happy with the reorgani-
zation of 'Florida's state govern-
ment. Chapman noted that the
reorganization was brought about
by the approval of a new Con-1
stitution for the State last No-
vember which, he pointed out,
was approved by South Florida
voters while being turned down
by North Florida voters.
"All we have done", Chapman
said, "'was to put all of our ex-
isting departments of Govern-
ment under 25 departments and
create ,some new, high-paying po-
sitions to administer the new de-
partments,, thus .adding to the
expense of government, rather
than reducing it."
In'his address, Chapman just
talked about the past session of
the Legislature in general, touch-
ing on several items of particu-
lar interest to him.
Chapman said he voted against
the pay raise bill and voted for
the Governor's veto of the bill.
The freshman legislator said he
thought it was unwise for the
Legislature to vote itself a pay
raise'in the face of a deficit-for
state spending. "The raise isn't
all that much though", he point-
ed out. Chapman said 'Legisla-
tors formerly received a $100.00
per month salary and $600.00 a
month for expenses. The new
salary schedule calls for $1,000
per month and any expenses ver-
ified by expense, voucher. "The
expenses will not run as much
per month as formerly provided
without asking for it", Chapman
The Representative stated that
he intended to pre-file for the
next session of the Legislature,
a bill allowing $10,000 home-
stead exemption for those 65

Jobs Go Begging
Paul Harvey, both in 'his newspaper, column and on
his afternoon telecast one day last week, cited an example
that everyone should know about and consider.
Harvey told of an instance in his home town--Chi-
cago--where landscapers and horticulturists were seek-
ing people to work. The work was with landscaping,
planting and tending flowers and shrubs, trimming lawns,
mulching, fertilizing, pruning. The work was going beg-
ging because no one could be found to perform the labor.
The landscapers hit bn the idea of training some of'
those in the city who had no jobs and were having to de-
pend upon welfare for their daily bread. A total of 108
were enlisted in the training program. receiving pay (small
butpstill some pay) for learning while working. Attend-
ance at the training sessions was spotty to poor. Even
when these 108 were trained, there were three jobs avail-
able for each man the shortage of labor in this particu-
lar field would still be- acute.
Finally all 108 finished the training period. Only
one accepted a job that was offered. The other 107 pre-
sumably went back on welfare. Harvey ended his story
Sby stating, "Why work, when it pays so well not to."
According to Harvey's article, Chicago made this
problem by paying up to $70.00 per week to welfare re-
cipients. Florida doesn't pay this much, but still is faced
with a similar problem.
We think it is a problem that needs to be solved
It needs to be solved not only for the welfare of the-tax-
payers and the employers who are crying for unskilled and
semi-skilled (as wellas skilled) labor, but for the ones
who must depend upon welfare for their necessities.
Just in the past few years has the word "welfare"
been elevated as an acceptable term. Prior to the 40's
one was ashamed to admit that he was on welfare, even
though he couldn't do better, and welfare was necessary
or the recipient would starve.
Now today "welfare" has evolved to a state of be-
ing which is a little less ,than respectable because of
the freeloaders. To some welfare is necessary.' They can-
not work for one season or another and must be supported.
The professional welfare recipient has degenerated the
word "welfare", to be synonymous with a state of being
such as "dead-beat" or "laziness" or sorrinesss".
This isn't fair to those who need the service.
We firmly believe that welfare should begin to func-
tion as much in the employment agency avenues as they
do in benefits. Make a pa't of welfare's legions respon-
sible for finding jobs for those able to work. When a
job is found and offered, if it is refused, stop the welfare
This would at least protect the reputation of those
who need welfare's services.
What Is Welfare?
Throughout the years since the very beginning of
the' exploration of the New World, this has been the land
of opportunity. Early history is filled with early explor-
ers' tales of streets paved with gold anid the wealth that
would reward any daring adventurer willing to migrate
to the virgin land.
Over the decades since, millions of people have fol-
lowed the ocean paths, in search of the fulfillment of the
promised dream. Some have made it, more in fact than
ever before in the history of man. Others have not.
The American is, 'despite many shortcomings, a gen-
erous individual. He has learned that he has an unwrit-
ten obligation to his neighbor to help when needed. If an-
other man is unable to care for himself why shouldn't he
share in the abundance? If a man is unable temporarily
to provide for his family's needs others will help him with
the necessities until he is able to return to the work force.

This is as it should be. We are a capitalist society. Each
of us profits by the labor of others. What one produces
another consumes. What is consumed is paid for with
earnings received for productivity. The more men em-
ployed, the larger the market. Aid to the incapacitated
is welfare. It is not demeaning. It is our way of prov-
ing to the world that we take care of our own. Aid to the
temporarily unemployed is welfare. It, too, is not of itself
degrading but a way of showing confidence in'our sys-
tem. It is an investment in the recipient's future, and
should provide enough to prevent hunger or misery, with-
out encouraging permanent unemployment.
When welfare provides a means of remaining unem-
ployed, the time has come for Americans to have careful
look at exactly how much welfare can be dispensed with-
out threatening 'their future.
who was ambitious and willing
to work. A widow in our block
offered me 5 cents to sweep lher
sidewalk each morning. It gave
me an idea and I soon had a
similar arrangement with seven
neighbors which netted me 35
cents a day. I arose early, romp-
ed through my early chores at
home,- then fulfilled my side-
walk sweeping contracts before
shoving off for school. I mowed
lawns and, did yard work during
afternoon free time. Sold papers
and ,eventually, carried a regu-
lar paper route. My personal in-
come soon averaged $5 a week.
A Negro kid' and classmate
operated a shoeshine stand and
did very well., I made a deal with
him to take over his stand in
the evening after he quit work.
A shoeshine netted me a dime
less cost of polish. I learned to
play a, tune with a shine-rag
and learned a lot about human
nature in my dealings with custo-
mers. Some were difficult and
hard to please, others easily sat-
isfied and generous. I followed
family advice and started a sav-
ings account. Before long"I had
over $100 in the bank. I don't
know who was the proudest,

couraged me to earn my own
way, to reqcgnize the value of a
dollar and give value received.

all my life. Hard work and en-

As I grew older and assumed

Have you ever noticed what a "rubbei-necker" President Rich-
ard Nixoi is? He is a sight-seer from the word "go" and he doesn't
try to hide it.
For instance, on television one night last week, Nixon was pic-
tured on the aircraft carrier receiving the three Astronauts back
from their trip to the Moon. The helicopters were picking the
men out of the water, bringing them back to the ship and then the
short walk to the isolation chamber. In all of this Nixon was obviously
awed by the goings-on. He was grinning from to ear, jumping around
like a jack-in-the-box, -punching his neighbors and calling their at-
tention to something that was going on, laughing, clapping his hands,
waving his arms, etc. When the Astronauts looked .out the glass
front on the isolation chamber there was Nixon gawking right
back, grinning, waving, clapping his hands obviously pleased
. and obviously enjoying being in on something being done for
the first time in history.
You've probably been reading in the Panama City papers where
pine, bark is littering the beaches over there, with some bark turn-
ing up on Mexico Beach. The largest concentration, however, has
been on the Panama City beaches.
The Panama City papers have hinted strongly that the bark is
coming from paper mills with International Paper in Panama City
definitely stating that it isn't coming from them. This was dutifully
reported in the papers. They also more or less absolved St. Regis #
in Pensacola. This leaves only St. Joe to be the victim of the fin-
ger pointing. We might bring to light here that bark St. Joe i'
doesn't use for fuel, they sell to other industry for fuel. So, theta
Panama City people better look out or they might be getting a bill
for all that bark turning up on their beaches ... at the low priced "
fuel rate, however not pulpwood rates.
A friendly word of warning.
We have a covey of quail living in our neighborhood. Almost
every day one can see them in one yard or the other up and down,
Allen Memorial Way feeding among the grass and the feed that is
put out for them. At last count there were 17 quail' in the covey
and we expect to keep them.
The word of warning is that the people along the street have
adopted this covey of quail and we will' not take kindly anybody
trying to trap or kill the birds, either now or during hunting sea-
son. We are laying claim to them, and we want them left alone.
It's a pity what has been happening in our town during recent
For years in Port St. Joe, people have been able to leave the
keys in their car and leave valuables on the seat, in the trunk and
in the glove compartment, with hardly a misgiving at all reason-
ably sure that the articles (and the car) would be where it was left
when the owner returned.
Not so any more. One must lock his car if he leaves any valu-
ables in it (one man even had his'dry cleaning stolen out of his car
the other day). I don't like that and I'm sure you don't .either. I'm
accustomed to Port St. Joe being a place where you can feel free
with what is yours, because others 'respected it as your property

"Creeping Federalism" was the
spectre that brought about the
drastic changes in the, Florida state
government set-up, Senator Elmer
Friday told the' Port St. Joe, Rotary
Club'last Thursday. ,
Friday said that Federal controls
were growing by leaps and bounds
in areas that should be managed
by state government. "The only,
way to combat the 'Federalism was
to assume the duties ourselves",
The veteran legislator told the
Rotarians that State government
was in bad need of change. He lab-
eled, the former "proxy" system
among Legislators and committee
members, as one of the main faults
of the old system of Floridk gov-
crnmnent. "The system was mis-
used' on many ,occasions", the
Friday, who is termed' as the.
"watch-dog" of the Senate,, said
thq new system allows Legislators
and committees to secure. expert
help in disecting a problem and
trying to ,arrive at the best situa-
tion for the people. The new sys-
tem also provides for public hear-
ings and publication of proposed
bills. "Under the old system", he
said, "bills could, be introduced,
passed and become law, without
the public, those affected, or those
passing the law,-knowing anything
about its actual contents".
Friday, who was one of the au-
thors of the new State Constitu-
tion, and the new system of state
government, stated that the old
form of State government was
"curhbersome" and "wasn't doing
the job required".
Friday endorsed the new Consti-
tutipn and' the new governmental
system of Florida by stating 'that
the new system makes the Legisla-
ture not only responsible for levy-
ing taxes, but responsible for see-
ing -that the, money is properly
spefit. He declared the pew Consti-
tution also provides for a proper
back-up of State laws by requiring
adequate performance from local
and county government as well.
