Port St. Joe's Merchant's Divi-

is bursting forth this week with a
big city-wide Fall opening profit.
sharing sale. In this week's issue
of The Star will be found a 14-page
section devoted to specials being
offered by several local merchants.
The purpose of the sale is to pro-
mote shopping in Port St. Joe and
to begin the Fall season of buying.
This big Fall sale is only the first
in a series of big promotion sales
planned by the organization.
The divisions' chairman, Jesse
Stone, said, "We believe that this
and" future sales will put over to
the people of this area that Port
St. Joe is a good place to shop."
He said, "It has been my experience
through reading local and out-of-
town advertising that items can be
had here in Port St. Joe cheaper
than in large metropolitan surround-
ing cities. I think it is up to this
Division to let the people know of
this fact." ,

Sharks Drop Close Game To Walton
Braves; Meet Marianna Tomorrow
By WILL RAMSEY
Port St. Joe dropped its first con-
ference tilt to a good Walton High
team by a 19-14 score. Although
the Braves doubled the Sharks in
yards gained, the game was just as,
close as the score indicates. The
Shark defense was much improved
since last week as they were able
to hold the Braves pretty well
when the chips were down. But the
fancy running of the Braves' Blood-
worth was just too much for the
Sharks in the final half.
Walton started off quick in scor-
ing two touchdowns before the
Sharks knew what hit them. How-
ever in the second quarter with a
12-0 dificit, the lads decided they
had seen enough and started doing,
something about it. The Sharks re-
covered a fumble on the Walton 37
and Wayne Taylor drove down to
the Walton 5 where Wilford Elliott
tossed a pass into the end zone to
Travis Jones for the first shark TD.
Taylor. applied the toe for the ex-
Minutes later the Sharks fought
back to the Braves 24 where Blair
IShuford heaved a long pass to
Frank Fletcher for their final TD.
Taylor's kick was good and the
Sharks were out in front at the
end of the half by two 'big points.
Walton's final score came in the
third quarter after St. Joe caught
the fumbelitis. The Sharks looked
like they would sore again in the
final quarter as they started a long
drive that stalled on the Walton
11 yard line.
Walton was given a gift TD in
the second quarter with two consec-
utive 15 yard penalties that put
the ball on the Sharks 10. The ref-
