Freeman stressed that today's
meeting with FHA is a last ditch
effort as the loan must be clos-

Freeman said that all contracts
for the facility had been signed

tract for the club house which
was to be signed yesterday.

vided all goes well today, work

During the meeting, the Gulf

the County Commission a few
more facts Tuesday night, con-

Gaskin pointed out that his
company would provide a boat

Casting Covetous Eye
Reading the papers the other day, we see where the
U. S; Government is casting a covetous eye at Europe's
Value Added Tax, which is, in effect, a sales tax. The
Aax is applied to every financial transaction, from pur-
chase of raw material, to selling the worn out goods to
the junk man, bringing in a large sum of money for the
European states to finance thier budgets.
But the. value added tax would encroach upon the
state's present practice of levying sales taxes. The stories
-estimate that a "value added tax in the United States
would bring in $50 billion a year and could replace the
income tax or some other major tax.
You and I know that there isd no such definition in the
books as "replacing" taxes.
While on the subject of taxes, it's interesting to look
at the. national budget and realize that it is one third of
the gross national product of the nation. That means
that one out of three of our dollars spent, is a U. S. tax
When we look further and consider the tax money
paid to states, counties and cities, we would probably
arrive at about half of the gross national product; or,
one half of the money we earn being chewed up in taxes.
We all know that taxes' are necessary. They pay for
the roads we ride on; the law enforcement agencies; fire
protection; our nation's armed forces; various social aids
and federal projects too big for one community, county or
The only thing that bothers us is that we owe that
other half of our gross national product in the national
debt; so what are we buying meat and bread, homes and
autos, furniture and clothing with?
7 -Two attempts in the Senate this past week to cut off
funds for the Vietnam war by December this year or July
of next year, met the defeat they deserved. Granted,
maybe we shouldn't be in Vietnam, but the fact is we are.
If we had a son in Vietnam, and someone like Senator
George McGovern or Senator Mark Hatfield or even
(shame) Florida's Senator Lawton Chiles who backed
the July cut-off, wanted to cut off his support, we would
feel considerably hard toward these fellows for undermin-
ing their postiion and adding to their danger.
Supposedly secret papers "liberated" from the Penta-
gon by New York Times sources sort of gave the Demo-
cratic regimes. of the past few years a black eye on the
conduct of the Vietnam war, and here these tried and true
Democratic doves are trying to move heaven and earth
to put Prqsident Nixon in a box on the war question.
The North Vietnamese say they will "begin to talk"
about releasing our prisoners of war when we pull out of
Vietnam. President Nixon says we are not going without'
them, and we back his stand in this respect.
We hate to think that Senators McGovern, Bayh,
Hatfield, Kennedy and others are taking their positions
on Vietnam merely for the votes and support they will
receive for their position. We hope no American-much
less our leaders--could be that greedy for power. We
hope their motives are governed by strong convictions,
even though we fail to see how they can be.
Protect Our Fishermen
That Brazilian boat captain who supposedly ,shot at
American shrimp boats for being inside Brazil's newly-
- claimed 200 mile zone now says he didn't do it. The
American's claim he did.
We think the Brazilian's claim proves one thing; he
didn't fire with the consent and approval of his govern-
ment. It appears to us that he has been contacted by his
superiors and he is now trying to back out of his actions.
We would hate to think that Brazil is joining Chile in
such asanine actions. Brazil has always been a good
friend of the United States.
There is one thing for sure, the United States can-
not continue to put up with these little pip-squeaks taking

TO THE EDITOR
You know, many times the
'people of "yester-year" have
been heard in saying "It's this

but never when something goes

people of an-older age than

the young people of yesterday.
They are those people who fol-

Another thing we think should be thrashed out once
and for all, is this rising tendency to claim hundreds of
miles of ocean as private property. If the United Na-

the United States should go on record telling- other na-

of what is reasonable and prudent action on their part so
they can be legally backed up by our government.

by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
We received a clipping in the mail the other day des-
cribing a "sorry editor" as one who is taken by the "Mr.
Bigs" of the community; one who is in favor of what every-
one favors-schools, churches, libraries, etc.-but with
never a critical word toward these paragons of virtue; one
who timidly opposes increasing taxes; and one who fills
his editorial page with clipsheet material. We gathered
that the description was the sender's opinion of us.
Of course the epistle was unsigned, which, we know
from experience, can make one extremely brave if he
knows the source of his utterances will never be found
You could find yourself a better editor. Old poison
pen didn't have to write to tell us that. But one thing for
sure, we work long, hard hours each week that rolls
around trying to properly report the,news; which is more
than one could probably say about our correspondent.
Many of the charges of our antagonist don't bother
us. We expect criticism, even though we know we are
our own man and have the scars to prove it. We did re-
sent the implication- that we are not the author of our
editorials. We spend at least two hours every Saturday
afternoon putting our editorials together; while old poison
pen is off on the river enjoying a fishing trip. We never
copy an editorial unless we give credit to the paper from
-which it came. We, like all newspapers, get clipsheets of
suggested editorials. Occasionally, we will use one we
consider especially good; but doesn't that make us respon-
sible for its content? Most of the time when we use a
clipsheet editorial, we re-write it to express our own views
about the subject.
We'll tell our buddy like we tell everyone else who
questions our philosophies or wants us to labor a point
for them: "You buy this newspaper from me and you
can put in it just what you want". -But, first, you must
practice signing your name to your' critical epistles, be-
cause when you are the editor, you must sign your name.
You must be able to back up what you say with fact and
proof, rather than rely on things being as you think they
are or wish they were. There's a big difference, and any
editor who is worth his salt knows it or he doesn't remain
an editor very long.
.We have known for a long time that two is twins;
three is triplets; four is quadruplets; five is quintuplets
and six is sextuplets. But we didn't know what nine was

it have to be to be labeled a "covey"?

)UT YOUR PRESCRIPTION: || Week; Reporting Record Attendance
The use of prescriptions in dentistry is a fairly recent de-
velopment. Due to,the discovery and application of certain
types of drugs, the practice is rapidly expanding. Tranquil
izers, because of their apprehension-curbing nature, have
proved helpful with patients undergoing major dental work.
SBy relaxing the patient in this way, the dentist can go about
his work more efficiently. Analgesics and antibiotics are
also proven aids in dental therapy. They speed healing and
prevent or fight infection. These new applications of pre-
.scription drugs demonstrate the diverse role pharmaceutl-
cals play in our lives. Now, when your dentist, prescribes,
you receive the same benefits of modem medical research
as when your physician prescribes. And when you have'
regular physical examinations don't heglect to have your
teeth checked. Make an appointment with your dentist when
you make one with your doctor. As a matter of fact, why not
phone for an appointment today?
