Report Could Be


Anr article hidden deep inside
last week's daily papers should.
have caused those who supported
giving 18-year-olds adulthood sta-
tus in purchasing hard liquor have
a twinge of conscience and gave
those who opposed it more ammu-
nition to fight for its repeal.
At first, following passage of
the law things went more or less as
it had before the law was passed.
Most kids didn't buy liquor since
they had not been allowed to the
day before. But things didn't stay
like this for long. Those who fought
against the law, warned that
abuses and future trouble would
crop up to haunt the supporters.
Now we read in the papers
where teen-age conviction for
drunken driving is up more than
1,000 percent since the drinking age
was lowered to 18 last year. 1,000
percent! That's unbelievable.
It's interesting ,to-note that the-
Presbyterian elder who sits in the
Governor's chair and contends that

he does not support such activities
says "the report could be mislead-
ing." This corner, which opposed
the move, from the start says,
"True the report could be mislead-
ing the percentages could be
bigger than reported."
If more than a 1,000 percent
increase in convictions has offi-
cially been reported, think of the
many who got away with it through
a technicality. .
Don Keirn, chief of the state's
Bureau of Driver Improvement
says the report shows an "obvious
need for education programs aimed
at teen-agers." We ask, "education
to do what teach a kid to hold
his liquor better or teach him that
liquor and an automobile will kill
him-and somebody else along with
Lowering the legal age for
liquor purchases was a mistake.
The only way to rectify the prob-
lems -which -will- arrive -with. this&
mistake is to reverse the decision
made in the first place.

Same Old Maneuver

In a day of unprecedented state
money surpluses, the Florida Leg-
islature managed to go through a
session and still raise your taxes
for the next fiscal year. They didn't
commit the deed directly, but the
results of their actions will mean
more taxes to be paid by property
Governor Reubin Askew's pro-
perty tax relief proposal created
relief by placing an eight mill cap
on school taxes levied within -the
county; down from the previous
cap of 10 mills.
The purpose of the Governor
was to have the State finance more
of the school bill with the surplus
now enjoyed by Florida. It won't
work that way however, since the
larger counties managed to get
some changes made in the Cost of
Living section of the education fund
distribution formula. Last year,
this proviso cost Gulf County near-
ly $100,000 since the State people
said it wasn't as expensive to live
in Gulf as it was in, say, Miami, or
Jacksonville. We're glad it isn't,
but our kids need to learn just as

Other Editors Say:

bad, and they need the learning
tools and qualified instructors just
as bad. Stretching the dollars
through lower living costs gives us
the edge we need to attract com-
petent teachers.
As we see it, the new cost of
living formula will further erode
the state money coming to Gulf
County. The eight mill tax limit
will further reduce operating mon-
ey for the schools. The schools
must operate, however, whether on
state or county money. Since the
state money will be limited by the
distribution formula, the county is
the only place left to get it.
The needed money can be had
in the county, by simply raising the
property valuation to compensate
for the lost two mills and the cost
of living money. Raising the valua-
tion for the schools also raises it for
other taxing bodies.
So, dear friend, what started
out to be a highly publicized pro-
perty tax relief bill in this an
election year, merely turned into
the same old maneuver of raising
your taxes.

KEY BISCAYNE Cape Florida Lighthouse, located on the southeastern
tip of Key Biscayne across the bay from Miami, is one of the historical sites
included on the Florida Bicentennial Trail. Built in 1825, the lighthouse and
the keeper's house have been restored and are open to the public.


Ever since release of the
Nixon transcripts, a new
phase which will endure has
been born. It is called "exple-
tive deleted.Y
This, of course, refers to
deletions in the White House
transcripts where a curse
word, that is, expletive, has
been deleted.
It only proves one thing:
That President Nixon, in pri-
vate at least, cusses. So
what? Who doesn't?
Now, before you start writ-
ing the hate mail, think about
it. (I once wrote a column
indicating that a married
couple who didn't fight never
existed and got mail from
couples who said they'd
never, never had even a ser-
ious argument. Poor souls.)
But, yes, everyone uses ex-
pletives. First of all, let's
define the word. It doesn't
necessarily mean a curse
word. Webster says it's a
word inserted in a sentence
to fill a vacancy without add-
ing to the meaning.
An expletive could be a
simple "darn it" (not mean-
ing sock mending) as well as
a stronger "dammit" (not
meaning building a wall in a
When you say "oh heck" is
it any worse than saying "oh
There was a time when you
rarely heard women use ex-
pletives of the kind we
THINK Nixon used, but even
great grandmother used to
say such things as "Oh mol-
lycoddle" or some such. Her
counterparts of today fre-
quently use more salty exple-

ing or crying. He also said
"cussing is as old as man."
Research, still quoting
Time, shows that truck dri-
vers, factory and construc-
tion workers and men in the
armed services are the most
notorious users of expletives.
Psychologist Paul Cameronr
said that 24 per cent of the
vocabulary of factory or con-
struction workers on the job
consists of "dirty" words. It
is hard, Cameron notes, to
put together sentences with
more swear words than that.
On the low end of the exple-
tive usage list are white col-
lar professionals who have
just a one per cent rating in
the office, but a three to four
per cent rating at parties.
This issue of expletives will
surely bring forth as much
hypocrisy as is evidenced by
those who condemn drinking
in public and do their tippling
at home. One noted minister
is already quoted as saying
"One can't imagine that a
man with decency would use
such language, even sparing-
ly, much less have it flow-
and flow in the Oval Office."
Oh, yes, most, if not all of
us use expletives, even the
little old lady who doesn't
look the part at all.
There was the demure
housewife who never was
heard to use an expletive as
we know the word but she

Letter to the Editor:
On Friday, May 24, about
5:30 p.m., my husband, -Hen-
ry James, had a heart attack
in our car on Highway 98. I
returned to the service sta-
tion in Mexico Beach, who in
turn, called the Mexico
Beach police and an ambu-
lance. .When the policeman
arrived, he did not know how
to operate the respirator and,
even if he had known, he
could not have used it be-
cause it was not in operating
In the ambulance on the
way to the hospital in Port St.
Joe, most of the cars travel-
ing in the same direction
would not yield the right of
way to the ambulance, even
though the siren was sound-
ing and the light was flash-
ing. Many of these cars had
their windows open and must
have heard the siren. Some
motorists in cars with air
conditioners running turned
to look and saw the flashing
light on the ambulance but
chose to ignore what they
knew was an emergency.
I know now my husband
was beyond help but not all
people requiring the medical
assistance of an ambulance
are. Please let us all observe
the law and yield the right of
way to any and all emer-
gency vehicles with lights
flashing and sirens sounding.
The busy season is here
and the beach is full of vaca-,
tioners. Think about them
and yourselves. Someday you
or a loved one may need the
respirator and rapid trans-
portation to the hospital.
It would be disastrous if
there were a serious accident
or heart condition and the
respirator was needed and
not in operating condition.
The Mexico Beach Police
should be fully instructed
in the use of the respirator.

Teachers Are Hired for Teaching Students

Sterner disciplinary action
may have to be taken by law
against parents unless there
is a change of attitude on the
part of both the parents and
school children as to their
obligation with regard to the
educational processes.
Much of the time of the
Colquitt County Board of
Education in recent months
has been devoted to hearing
of disciplinary matters and
making decisions. This

means that considerably
more time has been devoted
than should be in the various
schools of the system to dis-
cipline and counselling of
students on infractions of
rules, because only a small
percentage of the disciplinary
cases are appealed to the full
Education is costing tre-
mendous sums of the tax-
payers' money, all the way
from kindergarten through

high school and college. In-
terference with the obligation
of the schools-to give boys
and girls the opportunity to
develop their talents and in-
crease their knowledge so
they can compete in the
world as citizens and work-
ers-is both costly and unfair
to those who wish to learn.
To achieve the ends of edu-
cation there must be discip-
line and order in the schools,
whether public or private. It

is a basic requirement for
educating young people so
they can hold their own as
future adults. Therefore the
pupils must learn self-re-
straint and obedience to
school regulations.
Parents, meanwhile, have
an obligation to see that their
children comply with esta-
blished school regulations. It
should be readily recognized
there can be no satisfactory
progress in student learning

if a teacher must spend more
time with discipline than with
textbooks and lectures.
The problem of education
has become too costly and too
valuable to allow inefficiency
and looseness, either within
the teaching profession or in
the learning process. Educa-
tors are trying desperately to
improve their backgrounds,
techniques and curriculum so
they can give children maxi-

When someone hands mie two free tickets to
a dinner, I go. That happened last week, for the
appreciation dinner given for Commissioner of
Agriculture Doyle Conner held at the Admiral
SBenbow Inn in Panama City Beach last Friday
night. I went, even though the dinner wasn't
supposed to start until 9:00 p.m., our time, and
didn't actually start until nearly 10:00 our time.
The dinner started late, but everything was
going along well with a delicious rib of beef au
jus (if my Italian serves me in proper order, au
jus means "in juice") along with a baked
potato and salad. We had some entertainment
being furnished during the dinner by a musical
group presenting Christian entertainment on
the beaches through the summer and things
were going along good.
Then the air conditioner broke down. To be
caught in a windowless room with about 400
people with no air conditioning last Friday
night wasn't the most pleasant thing in the
world. The air conditioner came back on about
30 minutes later, but overcoming the heat from
that many bodies isn't the easiest thing for an
air conditioner to do.
On the way home, I saw my first streaker.
In fact, though, it was a stroller rather than a
streaker. About half way between St. Andrew
and the Florida Theatre, there was a young
boy, who appeared to be about 17 or 18 years of
age, taking a midnight stroll in the altogether,
merrily waving to the cars which were
whipping by, on busy 15th Street. The boy was
carrying what appeared to be a pair of cut off
jeans folded up in his hand and was wearing a
pair of sneakers and an old, floppy hat.
A young girl tried to get him to come into a
small restaurant but he walked up to the
window, looked in, and kept going on his way
up the side of the street.

I've got ripe tomatoes coming off my vines
now, but they are hard. Some of you "experts"
tell me what's wrong.

The hounds of Washington have President
Nixon treed now, baying for more tapes, but
the President feels he is up a tree tall enough
to be safe and is growling defiance at the
hounds and daring them to try and come after
It's getting downright disgusting to read of
the "case" being compiled against Nixon by
the Committee for Impeachment. First, Nix-
on's former lawyer, Mr. Buzhardt testified he
heard, that a Cabinet official told someone else
that the milk people were promised price
support if they would make a sizeable contri-
bution to the campaign fund. How much more
explicit can you get? We could send a lot of our
known criminals to jail on evidence like that,
but only the President seems to be a worthy
target of such unimpeachable sources as this.
I can't see what the great hassle over the
tapes is for, either. Taped evidence is not
admissable in court unless the parties involved
know their conversation is being taped. Such
tapes wouldn't convict the murderers of the
Alday family up in Donalsonville, if it were
available, so how does a justice-seeking com-
mittee hope to come up with an adequate case
against the President which will stand up in
court, through the so-called Watergate tapes?

I read in the paper the other day where two
men in Fort Walton Beach died from drinking
too much gin. The two had a bet on as to which
could drink the most gin in the shortest time.
After about an hour the contest was called off
when neither man could drink anymore. Along
the way the "timekeeper" had lost count and
knew only that each man had drunk between 32
and 48 ounces.
During the night, one of the men was taken
to the hospital from the jail where he had been
taken on a drunk charge. He died 11 minutes
later. The next evening, the other contestant's
sister could not awaken him, so she took him to
the hospital where he died the next morning.

people's program in state
government,'' was the des-
cription Florida Senate Presi-
Sdent Mallory Horne gave in
commenting on the results of
the -74 session of the state
"This ses- I
sion was ,
more orien-
ted toward
the pro- I
blems of the
average Fl- ,'
oridian than
any other
session in
recent history," explained
Horne, a veteran of 18 years
of legislative service.
"We provided tax relief for
the elderly by granting them
a $10,000 homestead exem-
ption on property taxes. We
rolled back school taxes for
every property owner and we
provided protection to those
who purchase condominiums,
he added.
Home also pointed to-signi-
ficant progress in public edu-
cation. "We have given the
impetus to a tightening of
discipline in public schools
and we have encouraged edu-
cators to return to some of
the more basic techniques of
education so that students
4 leaving school will be able to
read, write, spell and be bet-
ter equipped to earn a liv-
ing," Horne asserted.
The candidate for the U. S.
Senate, who has announced
his intention of reforming
congressional rules, said the
legislative session just ended
"was one of the finest from
the standpoint of accomplish-
ment and one of the smooth-
est from the viewpoint of
operations." Horne had pre-
viously been successful in

altering legislative rules. The
changes he initiated are cred-
ited with creating a more
efficiently run legislative pro-
Another accomplishment
which will benefit the aver-
agew person, Home said, was
the law which gives "people
some power to avoid control
by the 'phantom government'
of the bureaucrats."
Horne started a movement
early in the session to pro-
mote legislative review -of the
rule making authority of
state government agencies.
"We found top echelon and

even middle level executives
indulging in rule making
without legislative authority.
In most instances these rules
were not needed or were re-
tarding commerce and the
economy. Under the new law,
government executives will
be required to have specific
statutory authority to impose
new rules and the old rulks
will be periodically reviewed.
"In summary, we had a
session in which the people, of
Florida were in the driver's
seat. We didn't accomplish
all that we desired, but the
progress was significant,"
Horne concluded.

ID Change Made

for Post Exchange

St. Petersburg-If you are
authorized to shop on an
-Armed Forces Bse, the base
exchanges now must have
positive proof of your Social
Security number if it is not
shown on your individual ID
cards, says W. B. Mackall,
Director of the State of Flor-
ida's Division of Veterans
This new requirement
according to the Army and
Air Force Exchange Service
is designed conform with the
recent switch of military re-
cords to a toal Social Security
System. The action applies to
both active and retired mili-
tary people and their depend-
ents and authorized civilians
The action was necessary,
because ID cards issued prior
to mid-1967, do not show a
Social Security number.
The Army and Air Force

Exchange Service advises,
that those people who hold
ID cards issued before the
mid-1967 date, request new
cards, through the appro-
priate military channels.
Mackall stated, for depend-
ents, exchanges will accept
ID cards showing either their
own or their sponsors Social
Security numbers, or other
documents showing their
numbers, such. as Social

Dr. Henry Nehrling Had Good Advice

By: Shannon Smith
Home Grounds Specialist
University of Florida
One of Florida's most out-
standing horticulturists was
Dr. Henry Nehrling-orin-
thologist, botanist and plant
breeder. The horticultural
writings of Dr. Nehrling were
originally published by the
American Eagle of Estero
and covered a period dating
from the early 1890's to the
late 1920's.
The famous plant explorer
David Fairchild. once wrote,
"Dr. Nehrling's writings
should be available to the
young people who are making
gardens around their houses;
for they not only give the
facts regarding a host of
interesting plants from which
they may choose, but they
tell in narrative form how
one who learns to recognize
plants can explore for a life-
time the unlimited variety of
beautiful forms which com-
pose the plant kingdom."
For the young and old who
have not had the most plea-
surable experience of reading
horticultural notes by Dr.
Henry Nehrling, I offer a
selected few of his quotes.
His advice seems to be need-
ed more today than when it
was written over 50 years
"Show me your garden,
provided it is your own, and I
will tell you what you are."
"In both cultivation, and
enjoyment of gardens, is
peace, rest and contentment.
Pleasure is not a luxury of
life, but one of its necessities,
and ornamental horticulture
is one of the truest and most
stimulating pleasures in life,
and may be enjoyed by him
who possesses only a window

"Florida is the land of
almost unlimited possibilities
as far as ornamental horti-
culture is concerned. We are
able to grow in the open af-
hundreds-no, thousands-of
species of exquisite tropical
and subtropical plants which
farther north can only be
grown with much difficulty
and with considerable trouble
in expensive glasshouses.

wealth of beautiful native and
exotic plants s in Florida,

New Count'

Gulf County could have a new blooming
industry coming along, based on what Jim
Patton, manager of the Circla J Farms near
Overstreet told the Rotary Club last Thursday.
That new industry is cattle, with literally
thousands of beef cattle currently being bred,
raised and fattened on what was formerly
thousands of acres of Gulf County swampland and

has since been cleared
pasture land.
Circle J started operation
as a small grains producing
venture. Then they got into a
winter pasture program
to keep their lands busy
between grain growing sea-
sons. Now, the plan calls for
full-time cattle production
with nearly 2,500 cows al-
ready on the ranch. Plans
call for increasing the herd
size to over 7,000 during the
next couple of years.
Currently, according to
Patton, the Circle J is in the
process of building up its own
herd through controlled
breeding. What started out as
a calf operation will become
a cow-calf operation.
Patton said the farm is
even producing its own bulls
through select breeding. He
said it will require about 150
bulls for the size operation
they plan and through the
selection process, only about
50 of 150 bulls produced each
year will be kept for breeding
The huge ranch is being
broken up into 1,000 acre
units with around 1,000 cows
to the unit with a manager
over each unit. Constant re-
cords are kept on the breed-
ing stock. "If a cow fails to
produce a calf a year, she is
sold to the slaughterhouse: if
a bull doesn't sire the type
cow we want, off to the
bologna factory with him",
Patton said.
While the ranch is operated
in a modern' manner, with
extensive record keeping,
scientific breeding (the ranch
also uses artificial insemina-
tion freely, along with nat-
ural breeding methods) the
operation is old fashioned in
one respect. The cows are
still herded on horseback.
Patton said, "The- pick-up
truck or motorcycle cannot

and converted into lush

hope to compete with a train-
ed cutting horse and cow dog,
"when it comes to working
cattle," Patton said. "The
trained cow horse knows
which cow needs attention
and what to do and the dog is
the most effective method
known to keep the straying
cow in line", he said.
The ranch will raise much
of its own grain for feed.
Plans now are to grow the
calves to about 600 pounds
then sell them to the grain
feeding lots. "Eventually we
may even put in our own feed
lots", according to Patton.
The ranch manager also
took the opportunity to point
out where the fault lies for
high food prices. "It isn't the
fault of the farmer or ranch-
er," he said. Patton pointed
out that the price of every-
thing used by the farmer has
risen tremendously in the
past few years, "But the
farmer and rancher is still at
the mercy of what the mar-
ket will offer for his produc-
tion. It's a gamble with every
Patton pointed out that far-
mers have met most price
increases with increased effi-
ciency. He pointed out that in
1900, a farmer fed himself
and two others. NoW, a far-
mer feeds himself and 60
others. Only six percent of
the population of the nation is
engaged in feeding the coun-
Patton pointed out that
ranchers were receiving only
64c per hundredweight more
for cows today than they
were receiving 22 years ago.
"What other product has
risen so little in this period of
time?" he asked.
Circle J Farms is owned by
the T. L. James Company of
Ruston, La.

If you're getting

your home ready for

another Florida summer,

here's help.

If you re planning to buy air conditioning, or if
you already own it and are planning to use it,
here are some things you should know.
What type do you need?
This depends on whether you intend to air
condition your entire home, a major portion of
it. or one room
For one room, you'll want a room unit. For
larger areas you can choose between a room
unit and a central system
What size do you need?
This depends on a couple of things. Well
shaded. well insulated areas require
minimum cooling. As low as 20 BTU's per
square foot.
Unshaded windows a o-
poor insulation can double i .. .
amount of air conditioning A

conditioning dealer will
check your home and
recommend the proper
size and type of
equipment for you
Or. Florida Power will .
be glad to help you if you're
unable to get the informatic -
What's most economical to
Just remember, the higher the efficiency
of a unit. the lower the operating cost
There's a simple formula for this.
All air conditioning manufacturers
rate their units in terms of British Thermal
Units (BTU's). and the electricity required
for the unit in terms of watts
To find out the efficiency of a unit. just
divide the BTU s by the watts The unit that
gives the most BTU's per watt has the highest
efficiency ratio and is the most economical to
The more efficient units today produce
from 7 to 10 BTU s per watt. so make sure the
unit you're considering falls in this range, the
higher the better
Selecting the right unit is just the
Next. be sure the system is properly
installed Keep the outdoor section clear of
plants and obstructions
Also be sure that walls, ceilings and
floors are properly insulated Insulation can
pay big dividends for a long time Air
conditioning ducts should be tight and well

Fan and thermostat.
A fan setting of "Auto" conserves energy and
gives best humidity control. "On gives more
uniform air motion, sound level and
room-to-room temperature.
Thermostat: avoid using more electricity
than necessary by setting the thermostat too
low For maximum economy, choose the
highest comfortable temperature.
Filters and return air grill.
Replace filters frequently. Clogged filters
make the unit work harder than it needs to
And don't block air flow with furniture
or drapes.

Doors and windows and wiring.
Close openings and seal cracks around

Use properly sized wiring.
And place the condenser where it can
get free air flow. Avoid putting it in your

One day or more. turn the unit off or set

Show You

"This summer a great
number of young people will
be working and paying social
security contributions for the
first time," Robert Latta,
Social Security Feild Repre-
sentative for Gulf County
said this week. To be sure
you get social security credit
for the work you do, show
your employer your social
security card the day you
apply for work.
The importance of having
proper social security credit
is even greater now for young
people because of recent
change in the disability pro-.
visions for persons under 31
years of age. A young worker
may need as little as one and
one-half years work under
social security to be eligible
for disability benefits,
according to Latta.
If you have lost your card
or never had a card, be sure
to get in touch with the Social
Security Office now so you
will be prepared when the
time comes for you to apply
for summer work.

Vaccine Levels

.Vaccine levels in over
200,000 preschool age children
in Florida are dangerously
low say health officials of the
$ Florida Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services
"A recently completed sur-
vey of vaccine levels," said
Wilson T. Sowder, M.D., Div-
ision of Health Director, "re-
vealed that about 25 per cent
of the state's pre-school chil-
dren are not protected
against such diseases as polio
and diptheria, and almost
half need protection against
measles and rubella."
"Children of day nursery
and kindergarten age are
especially deficient in their
immunizations," he said.
Health officials are work-
ing for 100 per cent immuni-
zation of Florida's preschool
age children against diph-
theria, polio, tetanus, whoop-
ing cough, measles and rub-

ella before the beginning of
the 1974-75 school year to pre-
vent possible outbreaks and
to insure full compliance with
the state's Compulsory Im-r
munization Law which was
passed in 1971._About 15
per cent of Florida's children
entered kindergarten and
first grade in 1973 without
being completely immunized
against these dread diseases.
Approximately 81 per cent
were completely immunized.
Around four per cent had no
record of immunizations.
"The survey also pointed
out that almost half of the
children vaccinated by public
health departments have not
completed their immuniza-
tions. Consequently, they are
only partially immunized,"
Dr. Sowder said.
"The partially immunized
as well as the unimmunized
children pose a threat to their
communities for they are

potential sources of out-
"The potential for out-
breaks exists in middle, jun-
ior high and high schools
today in Florida," he said,
"because children are reach-
ing these grades without hav-
ing been properly immunized
in mass immunization pro-
grams held in the 1960's.
Also, children who were first
immunized at nine months of
age or younger and children
who received gamma globu-
lin with measles vaccine in
those programs may need re-
vaccination now. Parents
should consult their physi-
cians about this."
Health officials expressed


concern over the findings of
this survey compared to a
survey conducted in 1973. The
comparison showed that
there has been a slight de-
crease in the percentage of
preschool age children who
received vaccine in 1974.
