Schools Offering Summer Program
For Students to Make Up Lost Work
Mrs. Laura Geddie, coordina-
tor of special programs for the
Gulf County School System out-
lined an ambitious summer pro,-
gram being offered in Port St:
Joe schools this summer to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday.
Mrs. Geddie said the program
is being financed by a govern-
ment grant and will be geared
to help the many students who
missed the first six weeks to
make-up their work. She said,
"This is not only an excellent
opportunity for the students, but
It's not very often an entire
slate of candidates will get 'a

Mrs. Geddie said there are ap-
proximately 200 students of both
races who failed to make their
grades this year, mostly due to
the boycott of black students at
the first of the school year.
She said a grant of $16,040.00

per student for the students to
repeat their grades next year,
not to mention the damage to
the child by making him take
a grade over again".
The summer program will of-

The Cole woman had been
arrested about 2:30 Monday af-

Tuesday afternoon, when Da-
vila came on duty, officer How-
ard Rogers, who was being re-
lieved by Davila, cautioned him
to check on the prisoner as she
was having a hard time getting
over the drunk. Rogers said he
had placed extra mattresses on
the floor of the cell to keep her
from hurting herself,
Davila said he checked on the
woman several times during the

motionless in the floor of the

Dr. Richard Morley, president of Gulf Coast Com-
munity College and a resident of Beacon Hill called the
office the other day, disturbed. He was disturbed at the
number of vehicles driving up and down the beaches, as he
said: "Pulling surf sleds, racing, and cavorting about" in
a manner which'was dangerous to the citizens who were
enjoying the beaches.
We suggested to Dr. Morley that he call the Gulf
.County Sheriff's office since driving vehicles on the beach
is against the law.
Dr. Morley was quick to say that he had observed the
license plates and he hadn't seen a single Gulf County
car or vehicle being driven on the beach.
The concern of Dr. Morley needs to be felt by all of
us during this coming beach season. We need to be ob-
servant and take it upon ourselves to report vehicles seen
"Everyone", commented a Washington politician re-
cently, "is entitled to at least one boner". This may be
so; but it is difficult to understand how Congressman
Hale Boggs, the distinguished House Majority Leader,
could have "pulled such a boner" as his disastrous early-
morning speech before Congress on April 6. louse mem-
bers on both sides of the aisle were stunned when Boggs
blurted, "When the FBI taps the telephones, of members
of this body and of members of the Senate, when the
FBI stations agents on college campuses to infiltrate col-
lege organizations, when the FBI 'adopts the tactics of the
Soviet Union and Hitler's Gestapo, then it is time-it is
way past time, Mr. Speaker-that the present director
thereof no longer be the director:"
Perhaps Deputy Attorney General Richard Klein-
dienst .had the best answer, when he said that "We have
come to, the conclusion that he was either sick or he was
not in possession of his faculties when he made that state- -
driving on the beaches.
Our beaches are family beaches. The small kids play
in the sand while their parents loll in the. sun. We don't
want these kids ran over. Then too, those lolling parents
may come in for some serious injuries if a vehicle operator
doesn't see them in time.
Our beaches are strictly for pedestrian traffic and
they should be kept this way. In order that this be
done, we urge you to keep your own vehicle off the beach
and take the advice we gave Dr. Morley: when you see a
car being driven on the beach: call the Sheriff's office
and try to get the tag number if possible.
The Sheriff's office is anxious to cooperate in trying
to keep motorized vehicles on the road where they belong
and they will appreciate your efforts in serving as watch
dogs, so to speak, to help continue our beaches as a safe
and enjoyable place to relax and have fun.
3n Mr. Hoover
The absurdity of the charge should be immediately
apparent to everyone. Even if Mr. Hoover had utterly no
regard for the civil liberties of the people of this nation-
which he does: and even if he should wish to become a
tyrant of the Soviet or Nazi stripe-which he does not;
Mr. Hoover has been around Washington long enough, and
has had enough experience, to know that he would be
utterly foolish to pull such a stunt as tapping the tele-
phones of U.S. Senators and Congressmen. Mr. Hoover
values his own career and the reputation of the FBI,
which he has very carefully nurtured through years of
effort, to destroy it all by indulging in illegal phone tap-
This' seems to be a time of open season for taking
pot-shots at the FBI and Director J. Edgar Hoover. But
still that does not explain how Mr. Boggs should have
put himself in such a political bind.

From grade school through college, education is be-
coming a costly, complicated business. Education at all
levels may be affected by taxpayer revolts and the in-
ability of students and their families to pay tuition and
other expenses of higher education.
At higher educational levels, rising costs are putting
college out of reach of millions of American families. It
costs up to $4,400 a year at' present to attend a univer-
sity. Consequently, applications are down at many in-
stitutions. If the present trend continues, estimates place

lor's degree at a first-rank university costs a student about
$22,000-a doctorate up to $47,000. It requires a fourth
to a half of an average family's income to pay expenses

large cities are concerned. He
contends that no matter what
we may do to try and entice peo-
ple to stay or locate in central
city areas is bound to fail. A re-
cent census bureau report indi-
cates what is happening today. In
the last decade 15 percent of the
white population left Manhatten,
18 percent left Chicago, 30 per-
cent left Detroit, 31 per cent
left St. Louis and 40 percent left
Washington, D.C. And the exodus
is not confined to white. Statis-
tics show\ that blacks are just as
anxious to get out and are mov-
ing to out of town locations as
they are able.
While poor black and whites
still flock to city centers, it is
not because they desire to live
there. They cannot afford to
live anywhere else and they, too,
will leave when financially able
to do so.
Fresh air, flowers and green
lawns are no longer the chief
cause of leaving the city centers.
Now it is fear as the crime rate
increases, streets become unsafe,
dirt and trash piles up, filth and
disease mounts and more and
more become dependent on wel-
fare. The city offers little hope
and little future.
So, today we find our cities on
the brink of bankruptcy. Un-
employment is on, the increase,
services curtailed, transportation
failing and incomes dropping at
an alarming rate.
The cities with their tax base
designed for growing central
areas are struggling to make
ends meet. Those who flee to the
suburbs, fight every effort to in-

If Stephen O'Connell, president of the University of
Florida keeps conducting himself as he has in the past
week or 10 days, he can get himself elected to the office of
Governor or maybe even president.
The president has earned my respect for refusing to
turn the operation of the University of Florida over to
the whims and fancies of one-twentieth (or less) of the
student body. He maintained control and adamantly re-
fused to give up his responsibility of operating the uni-
versity. It's a pity every student can't get just what he
wants, but in an operation as large as the University, the
rules must be set (and adhered to) which will best serve
all of the students.
John Q. Citizen would probably be elated if he were
allowed to run stop signs, not pay his taxes if he didn't
want to, have the garbage man come into his kitchen to
pick up the garbage or get his water through an unmetered
line. This would be nice for John Q. Citizen, but the other
citizens of the city would be discriminated upon if this
I know it's terrible to have to abide by rules, but we
must if we want to keep from running over each other.
I, for one, am grateful to O'Connell for demanding that the
rules be abided by.
Let it be noted that the University president set up
a procedure by which grievances could be heard and noted,
but the procedure was ignored for the more noticeable
riot and public demand.
Adventure of the Week One of the high points of
my week is being in a position to take a peek into the
back of George Core's pick-up truck. There's no telling
what you'll find there. buckets, tubs, pine cones, um-
brellas and last week he even had a vacuum cleaner on
board. Try it yourself, it looks more like "Fibber's clo-
set" than it does a pick-up truck.

Way back to 16th Street, we have all (willingly or unwill-

recently acquired. Like Bob, the dog is friendly and never
meets a stranger. Twice last week, he followed one of
the family through the door (or we should say, he ran
by whoever was coming into the house) made his
way about the kitchen, sniffing at the cat's feed bowl,
then checking the dog's feed bowl and after licking them
clean, troted into the family room, flopped on the couch
and started watching television.
Like I say, he's a very friendly dog.

"The average driver would do

u Get the big picture see de-

roadway ahead and to the sides
r and be aware of sights and sounds

Keep your eyes moving see

rear mirrors each five seconds
when traffic Is ahead or behind.
Leave yourself an out-keep
a safe space cushion around your
car, allow extra space when boxed
in, keep a stopping-swerving space
and give yourself space in which to
