Telegraph On the Way Out
Port St. Joe and 10 other
towns in the service area of the
St. Joseph Telephone and Tele-
graph Company, will evidently
lose their telegraph service.
Hearings held this week by
the Florida Public Service Com-
mission for the purpose of hear-
ing any objections to curtail-
menjt of the service, failed to
produce any objections.
Bernard Pridgeon, Jr., was
the firm's only witness and tes-
tified that the service had lost
money for the past 10 years due
to lack of use. "There are other
communications methods in ex-
istance today taking the place
of telegraph communications",
he said. Pridgeon testified that
the service lost over $38,000.00
during the past 10 years.
Pridgeon also testified that
the service had not had a rate
increase since 1949.
The last of the hearings was
to be held in Blountstown yes-
terday, but the results were not
known at press tipne.

A survey of 'the beaches area
near Port St. Joe has revealed
that the residents there are in-
terested in receiving water and
sewer services and if sewer can-
not be obtained at this time,
they would definitely like to
have a source of good water.
This was the report made
Tuesday night to the Board of
County Commissioners by board
members Walter Graham, Leo
Kennedy and Rudy Pippin. The
three Commissioners reported
they personally contacted ap-
proximately 80 families in the
area and only three said they
were not interested in either ser-
vice. All the Commissioners said
they found only about one in
four of the residents at home on
All three Commissioners said

sired water and sewer but would

the loan reconsidered,, point-
ing out local interest in the pro-

promised the loan previously.
Officials of FHA said they
would reconsider the loan after
a drainage study was made of
the proposed country club site
to see if proper drainage could
be installed and a search of the
property title to see if there
were encumbrances on the land.
Freeman said the club has un-

points of compliance, when a
final decision will be made.
"If the loan isn't granted be-
fore July 1 of this. year, we can
forget the government loan",
Freeman said. He said the mon-
ey, which has been held aside,
will revert to the government's
general fund after that date and.

A bill to create a recreational
park for the handicapped, on
St. Joseph's Peninsula, has been
introduced in the Florida House
by Representative William J.
Rish of Port St. Joe.
Plans have already been de-
veloped for initial construction
and equipping of the park. All
that is needed now is a green
light to go ahead with construc-
tion. Rish is asking for $75,000
- to cover costs of putting the fin-
ishing touches on the park and
building 10 cottages, enough for
32 handicapped persons.
The 100 acre park will provide
recreation to handicapped from
Florida's sunland centers.
Large Number of Interested Citizens View High School Art Show
Port St. Joe High School was decorated from
one end to the other last Thursday and Friday with dis-
plays of art projects created by the students during the
past school year. A large" number of local parents vis-
ited the school during the two day period to examine
the display. In the photos above, left and right, some
of the art work is viewed by students as Miss Barbara
Dennis, center, in the photo to the left, explains some
of the media used. In the center photo is a replica
of the art work placed in the "Tom Sawyer Show" in
Tallahassee. The exhibit, built by elementary art stu-
dents is a part of a fence built around the construction
site of the new capitol building in Tallahassee. The
show was under the direction of Mrs. Herbert Brouil-

Another Misunderstood Decision
We believe presidential press secretary Ronald L.
Ziegler erred last Tuesday when he said: "The Supreme
Court has acted and their decision is now -the law of the
'land and up to the people to obey". Ziegler's remarks were
concerning the Supreme Court's unanimous decision of
last week that busing of students was not illegal. Mr.
Ziegler should know as well as anyone that the utterings'
of the Court are not "law of the land", but are opinion
as to the Constitutionality of laws which have been pas-
sed. In other words, they say: "yes, that law is legal"
or "no, that law is not legal". The law then governs the
nation; not the Court or its decision.
The Supreme Court could make no other decision.
This fact is borne out by the unanimous vote (some-
thing rare in this day and time). There is;no prohibition
to busing in the Constitution knd the Court's only res-
ponsibility is testing laws against the Constitution. If
it was Constitutionally prohibitive, then-it's Constitution-
ally prohibitive to transport all students to school by bus.
Where Mr. Ziegler erred (and many others, also) is
in his assumption that because the Court ruled as it did,
then busing to create integration is the law 6f the land.
That's not so. Busing is a ruling of HEW, not a law pas-
sed by Congress or by the Supreme Court who can pass
While busing is not illegal, it is certainly not desir-
able to create an artificial situation at the expense oif
thousands of children. But, you may be sure that the ad-
vocates of busing for the questionable .social good that
it will do, will grasp at this straw and make the lives of
thousands miserable merely to get some personal satisfac-
tion for being a crusader.
Just as the Supreme Court's ruling on prayer in school
was mis-understood and picked up as a mandate by those
of the small minority who desired that prayer be left out
of school, so will this latest ruling be mis-applied.
The prayer ruling prohibited requiring pupils to re-
peat a prayer written or stipulated by a school board
or principal. The ruling did not prohibit prayers in
school; prayers of a sincere heart and searching for di-
A year ago, President Nixon took a hard line against
officially inspired school segregation. But at the same
time he opposed massive involuntary busing and said
the government would 'not require local school districts
to transport children beyond normal geographic school
zones to achieve racial balance.
The Supreme Court decision said, in effect that the
government could pass no laws against ibusing, but the
,government' is certainly within its right not to require
busing, even in face of the Court's decision. They would
do well to exercise this right and we as citizens would do
well to request our Congressmen to take this attitude.
When the three-day ivork week arrives, there is a
good chance that at the rate taxes are rising those three
days will be spent working for the government. The de-
mands for education, social services and capital outlays
have brought many states to a financial crisis, and most
of them are turning for help to the federal government-
-which is itself setting new spending records and strapped
for enough money to carry on all the programs required
' to make of us all, an affluent society.
The vicious, circle ends at the door of the taxpayer
The current slowdown in business may be a blessing
in disguise. It might help teach respect for law-a first
fundamental of self-government. It could also lead to a
new realization that social goals are unattainable except
through the strength of the business system.
The latest crop of college graduates, for example,
are learning the hard way, in their search for employ-
ment, that profits, jobs, and prosperity sink or swim
together. Perhaps this will lead to an awareness of other
who has been reading those wonderful stories aboutt how,
as machines become more efficient, everyone will enjoy
greater leisure. None of the stories explained how to en-
joy leisure after taxation has reached a level that allows
a person to exist, but not to live.
As things are shaping .up, the talked-about three-day
week will merely provide the worker with the necessary.
time to hold down a second job and thereby earn enough
to finance his own necessities as well as the government's
truths about the American business system. For example,
in the first three quarters of 1970, 90.2 percent of the
earnings of the average American company-after pay-
ing for materials, supplies, taxes, rent, heat, etc.-went
to employees. Of the remaining 9.8 percent retained by
the owners (stockholders) nearly half was needed to fi-
nance improvements for, future growth.
From this, it should not be hard to see why it is
idle to talk of social reform or progress of any kind un-
less it is accompanied by business growth and profits.
Gulf Pays Bend's
Gulf County tax payers pay
the highest county taxes per
person of any of the 11 Big Bend
counties according to a report
released in an annual report on
county finances by the Office of
the State Comptroller last week.
Gulf residents pay an average
of $66.04 per person; seven
cents above second highest aver-
age Hamilton county residents
who pay $65.97 per person. The
scale graduates all the way down
to Franklin county, which col-
lects an average of $13.62 per
person in taxes.
Other counties in the Bend

Receiving the highest per cap-
ita funds from the state was Wa-
kulla with $80.12. Gulf county
was right in the middle of the
11 counties, receiving $35.81
per capital from the state. Jack-
son received the least aid from
the state treasury at $8.56 per
Four counties in the Big Bend
section spent more than they
took in. These were Liberty, Jef-
ferson, Franklin and Taylor.
Gulf went to other extremes
too. It was iear the top in expen-
ditures for law enforcement and
next to the bottom in per capi-
ta expenditures for welfare.
Gulf spent $10.04 per resident
for law enforcement. Wakulla
county was high in this depart-)
ment with $12.75 spent. Taylor
Hamilton and Liberty were be-
tween Gulf and Wakulla with
only a few cents difference in
the four counties. Madison spent
the least amount for law en-
forcement with $6.06 per capital.
Welfare expenditures ranged
from a high of $17377 per per-
son in Gadsden to $1.49 for Jack-
son. Gulf county spent $1.83 for

Probably one of the biggest assets of living in a
small town is having good neighbors that you can get
to know personally.
There are, of course, many other attributes to
small town living, too, such as feeling safe and secure in
taking a walk down the street at night (if there is any-
one who walks anymore), being able to get anywhere you
want too in town in a matter of minutes, knowing every-
one, being able to park your car and being reasonably
sure it will be there when you get back. The list can get
longer and longer as one contemplates, but the good neigh-
bor bit is probably the biggest asset to small town living.
We have good neighbors in our part of town, just as
you have in your part.' We don't see our neighbors too
often, since either they're working or we're working most
of the time, but still, we are on a first name, and favor
Take the other day, for instance. I was getting in ''
the car to come back to work after dinner last Wednesday
when neighbor Bill Rich called across the yard and said:
"Hey Wes, I was planting tomatoes and I had too many
so I planted you some out in back of your yard". He
could just as easily have given me the plants, and most
people would have considered that act "neighborly".. But,
he planted them for me.
He didn't water them or fertilize them, though. I'll
have to speak to Bill about that.
I've got this shirt which Frenchie gave me for my
birthday. Just because it is brown, red, yellow, black,
blue, green and tan stripped, there are those who have
said it's loud. Bill Simmons even hid his eyes when I
walked in to Rotary Club last Thursday. (He said it was
the shirt, but it 'could have been something else which
caused him to shield his eyes).
But for all you pokers of fun at my shirt, I want you
to know that I have the seal of approval from two of the
classiest dressers' in Gulf County as to the beauty of this
.particular garment. Rudy Pippin and Walter Dodson
both approve. So the rest of you, who either out of envy
or lack of sartorial taste have made remarks about my
shirt, take notice that it's the only one like in town and
you can't get one, So, eat your heart out!

Those Who would like to drive a wedge between Pres-
ident Nixon and Vice-President Agnew are now making
book on when the pair will come to the parting of the
ways over U. S. policy toward Red China. Nixon' wants
to get closer to China (evidently, so we will know some-
thing of what they are doing) and Agnew reportedly
wants to keep them at arms length.
Of course, whether Nixon's or Agnew's viewpoint
on the matter becomes the policy of the nation hinges
on what attitude the Red Chinese take. Those who feel
the ping pong ball is a crack in the set face of China are
still whistling "Dixie". Being instrumental in stopping
the Vietnam war would be a move toward peace and un-
derstanding we could accept. But, a ping pong game?

Our State Board of Pharmacy exercises control over all
pharmacies within our State by the granting or withholding
of licenses. Anyone wishing to operate a pharmacy must
earn a Registered Pharmacist's license. The applicant must
demonstrate his willingness t6 comply with our high State
standards of practice. Our State law also requires that a
pharmacist keep his prescription records for a number of
'years. These files...of every prescription helills... must',
be.open to Inspection by the State Board of Pharmacy at
all times. In addition, the Federal government has legis-
lated specific laws for control of narcotics and adulterated
or misbranded pharmaceuticals. The various States have
also passed laws dealing with labeling. With this protection-
by-law, policed by pharmacists themselvesthrough the
Boards of Pharmacy, pharmaceutical standards are kept at
a uniformly high.level throughout the country.
For the highest pharmaceutical standard, low prices

Bob McKiernan, representing
the Port St. Joe Quarterback Club,
outlined the club's, program for
constructing new permanent con-
crete bleachers at the football sta-
dium to the Rotary Club last
McKiernan said the club has
plans and has already started con-
struction on a new seating facili-
ty which -will put 2,068 seats on
the home side of the stadium.
"The old bleachers seated only
1,000 people", McKiernan said.,
The full program calls for sev-
eral rooms to be built under the
seats for dressing rooms, etc. Ten-
tative plans are to put either wood
or aluminum seats on top of the
concrete beams, the speaker said,
"if we can raise enough money".
The price 'tag has been set at
$20,000 for concrete seats and
$30,000 for the entire plan.
The project will be financed by
bonds which the Quarterback Club
will sell. The bonds are to be non-
interest bearing with a minimum
of $1,500 worth to be redeemed
each year. The club is financing
the project through a 25c charge
on football tickets and various
fund raising programs throughout
McKiernan said over $4,000 has
already been earned and put into
the bleacher program.
