VOLUME XX -'ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1956 single Copy So .NUMBER. 4
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
All single but yet hopeful wo-
men of Port St. Joe take notice.
There is one less bachelor on
the loose. And the one less, was
quite a bachelor 325 pounds of
This particular bachelor of
which we write was one of the
more famous and hardest to get
bachelors of Port St. Joe was'the
.former free and happy Murdoc A.
Kelly, better known as "police-
man" Kelly in polite circles and
"cop" Kelly in not-so-polite cir-
cles. "Policeman" or "cop" Kel-
ly, depending on your circle, was
reluctant to give out information
to The Star's reporter but we
have gleaned the fact that his
pretty, blushing bride is Kathleen
Stalling, formerly of Tampa.
Down in Cooper's Barber Shop
the other day, "Goober" (Se-ond-
'Chair Leverette was getting a raz-
zing about his mosquito crop out
at his new home near Simmons Ba-
you. Goober, a frustrated farmer
turned barber, was talking ol the
garden he could grow, despite the
mosquitoes, with which he vowed
he could become accustomed to.
Of course that led to bragging
by F. F. (First-Chair) Nelson about
his collard green patch in his back
yard. Nelson was bragging about
.his o,n&rrj.w corn crop. "I harvested
a tub full of corn off that row and
carried it to my dady's farm iu
Washington County to feed the
pigs we don't eat corn at our
house". "Haw", shouted James
Hill, who presides over the shoe
shine stand, "You shore lost money
on that basket of corn".
Undaunted, Nelson said he just
planted- ihe corn for his bMtter-
beans to run on and give them a
A waste of j-erfeclly good roast-
If you went by the newscate- r-r
of the radio stations around thi',
section, Port St. Joe had nothing to
worry about from Flossie. A:ccord-
ing to the newscasters, the siorni
was going to hit everywhere ari.'iu
here but not once was Port SI r. -
mentioned as being in the pa'-, .-t
We don't like to sound like a I
prude, but we're, afid we are
going to here.
This business of drinking at the
school athletic contests is getting
out of hand. It is getting so that
you see more drunks per capital
at the football game than you
see in the bar room. We would
hate to see Gulf County go dry,
but such actions as this will bring
it'about if a curb isn't put up
against the practice right quick.
I don't drink, and that is my
business. If you drink that is your
business,, and I respect it as such.
'But when a person goes to get-
ting drunk at a school athletic
contest, he is making his business
everybody else's. It is disgusting
to their neighbors (both drinkers
and non-drinkers alike), and it
just doesn't seem to be the right
example to show the hosts of
children present at, these con-
tests. We give our thanks to the
police who try to see that rowdi-
ness is kept down, but they can
only see so much in a crowd such
as shows up.,
if it can't be stopped voluntar-
ily, we would be in favor of a
law being made making it illegal
to take liquor into a school ath-
letic field or gymnasium.
Let's see if we can't clean it
up a little.
Council Meets Monday
The Gulf County Continuing
Education Council, whose regular
meeting was interrupted last
Monday night by hurricane Flos-
sie, will meet Monday night,
The meeting will be held at the
High School auditorium at 8:00
Everyone is invited to attend.

Sharks Tie Apalach
In Season's Opener
Meet DeFuniak Springs Tomorrow
The St. Joe Sharks were a migh-
ty surprised group of lads as they
battled a fighting and determined
Apalachicola team to a 12-12 tie
last Friday night on the local field.
The Snjrks,. who were the favored
team were stunned as the Chapman.
crew moved the ball up and down
the field with little effort.
The Sharks gave up wa couple of
costly fumbles, one on the one-yard
line and were hampered by errors
from the completely green team.
'Chapman High started off the
scoring early in the first quarter as
Chapman marced the ball from the
50 down- to the six where Gary
Howtz waltzed across for the six
points, Jackie Mitchell broke thru
the Chapman defense and blocked
the extra point attempt.
The Sharks struck back quickly
as quarterback Blair Shuford heav-
ed a beautiful 40-yard pass to end
Billy Denton who scampered the re-
mainder of the field for th-e TD.
Wayne Taylor's magic toe failed
him in the extra point try and the
half ended at 6-6 tie after the
Sharks had again driven to the
Chapman one-yard line and lost the
ball on a fumble.
Chapman drew blood again early
in the third quarter as 1owtz again
added-six points on a 20-yard jaunt
around right end. The extra point
failed and again Chapman went
After both teams see-sawed back
and forth- with no damage done,
landed on the Sharks four-yard line.
\Then Wilford Elliott came into
the scene and broke through the
Chapman defense for a beautiful
93 yard dash to the Chapman three
where he was hauled down from
behind. Wayne Taylor bulled over
fromm that point for the score. The
extra point attempt failed and the
game ended at a 12-12 deadlock.
A couple of newcomers to the
Shark squad plus an old pro pro-
vided the defensive nucleus for the
,Sharks. Tackle Terry Hinote and
linebacker Tommy Wilder played
an outstanding defensive game.
Wayne Taylor did little more than
75% of the tackling for the Sharks.
Jackie Mitchell also showed up well
defensively. Wayne Taylor and
Wilford Elliott were the offensive
guns for the Sharks. Elliott picked
up 131 yards while Taylor banged
out 59 down the middle. Blair Shu-
ford and Bill Denton proved to be
a good passing combination.

vice as soon as they meet require-
ments of the department.
Under Department regulations,
adjacent areas or areas in close
proximity to present delivery zones
which are 50% or more developed
are eligible for delivery service.
Costin said, this meant that the

morning, the water was even higher
Where the street ran by the colored
section of town, boys were seen to
be swimming in the high water.
When Flossie struck near, Fort
Walton Beach Monday night, high
tides were again in evidence, but
the heavy rainfall that did the dam-
age the night before had gone. The
bay became rough and washed over
Highway 98 at Highland View, un-
dermining the highway in two plac-
es and causing bad cave-ins of the
road. Utility lines that ran beside
the road were put out of commis-
sion when poles were washed away.
The several buildings on the wa-
ter side at liTchl. d View remain-
ed intact, though they were damag-
ed by the pounding waves.
The Port St. Joe area's heaviest
damage was reported at Mexico
Beach where about a dozen cottages
and homes and one tourist court
were undermined by the pounding
waves. Several of the houses were
completely destroyed when their
foundations were washed away.

water was the paper mill canal
which brings fresh water to the
mill and to the city. A wash-out oc-
curred in the canal dikes near Cy-
pross Creek, letting the water from
the creek get into the canal. This
caused the mill and residents of
Port St. Joe to have black water
Tuesday and part of Wednesday,
but with the canal repaired, it is
expected that the water will be
cleared up by the time this news-
paper is out.
During the storm Monday night
the local chapter of the American
Red Cross opened emergency shel-
ters in the City Hall, both schools,
the Port Theatre, the colored
,schools and the colored Methodist
Church. Approximately 350 people
stayed in the shelters until mid-
night, when danger from the storm
ESeveral of the residents of the
city and surrounding area, went
inland to ride out the storm.
The Star is carrying pictures
of the rain damage Sunday night
but were unable to carry pictures
of the storm damage, since it is
impossible to make a picture on
Tuesday and get it to the engrav-

other interests in their individual

All peoples crave an outlet for
imagination! Loss of imagination
can be more deplorable than the
loss of our muscular coordination.

than the younger folk, and even less
creative than they were in their
earlier years, due mostly to disuse!

The teachers are meeting in
groups to find out first hand some
o fthe interesting things they can
do, and experience some of the ac-
tivities they wish to pass on to the
students. All students will partici-
pate at some point and level in the
general program. We wish to build,
stimulate and interest each student
in his search for intellectual, cultur-
al and emotional maturity.
The objectives and aims of the
school program will develop from
the needs, and nature of the groups
involved. It will be planned to help
them meet the demands of the so-
ciety into which they are born and
wish to live and adjust.
(Basically "Art is a process, a way
of doing", it is not an accumulation
of learned and memorized facts and
methods, techniques and processes
of another's ideas. Art involves in-
dividual choice, the right to exper-
ience and try to express one's own
ideas the freedom to experiment
with a wide variety of materials,
as well as learning the basic and
fundamental" elements used in art
such as line, color, form, texture,
proportion, etc. One cannot say he
does not need or use art in his
daily life since every object he
uses, wears, or buys was first plan-
ned by an artist craftsman It
is in everything- around and about
We hope later to be able to open
some adult art classes to the gen
eral public, but at present we are
developing in the schools, the basic,
gradual' knowledge of art necessary
for a student to have to keep alive
his creative thinking, an dexpert-
menting along with his critical at-
titude of his own work and of those
around him. He needs satisfaction
and a sense of work well dofe.
Therefore techniques, methods
which will help and improve his
work, will be introduced, as he
feels the need of them.

Natural Gas Will
Mean Cut In Rate
Charged for Power
An officer of Florida Power Cor-
poration has testified before the
Federal PowerCoqmmission that the
proposed natural gas pipeline in+o
peninsular Florida would play an
important part in the further de-
velopment of the state, according to
,R. G. Porter, manager of FPC here.
H. K. McKean, vice president in
charge of operations for Florida
Powre Corporation, said his com-

Porter explained that the use of
natural gas as fuel in the power
plants would cut plant operating
costs and that under the FlPC rate
structure these savings would be
passed on to the electric customers
in the form of reduced bills.
