ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WES-LEY R. RAMSEY


Did you ever have the habit ot
noticing things?
Just little things.
Things other people would call
insignificant.
We have that habit. We have
that habit bad.
All the time we not':o little
things, insignificant things. Things
that don't amount to a hiil of beans.
That is, we notice little insignifi-
cant errors and such, anywhere bht
in The Star. In there, we are afraid
to look for errors.
We'll give you some for instances.
Did you know that in John Robert
Smith's drug store, there is a word
misspelled on a sign? We happened
to notice it the other day. (There
we go again, noticing little things;
insignificant .things) and happened
to mention it to J. R.
"Well, I'll be dogged", replied
J. R.. "That sign's been up there
for ten years, and I never even no-
ticed that. Try to find (if you are
the noticing kind) the sign next
time you go in for a roll of turns.
It's right in plain sight.

Then another little notice was an
article in this week's paper con-
cerning the Veteran's iService Of-
ficer.


He sends us a form letter about
once a month stating the time and
place he will be in Port St. Joe.
In the text of his letter it goes on
to say may receive guidance
from so and so The letter for-
merly read may receive EX-
PERT guidance from so and so .
He had taken his pen and ink In
hand (ball point variety) and han-
dily marked through the word "ex-
pert".
We noticed this little thing and
just wondered if he hal come to
the conclusion himself that he was
no longer an expert (since tbe word
is printed in ten point 'type and uti
must have once 'been) or did.he
commit a boo-boo and his superiors
no longer consider him an expert
and had the word struck from tbl.
record. A lowering of rank so to
speak.
This think that we have noticed
will haunt us until the end of time
unless we find out-or quit notic-
ing these small insignificant things.

And then there was another little
notice.
'Nothing important, we just hap-
pened to notice it.
You see that little notice parked
right over there in the next eoi-
umn -staring you in the face? *)--+
Do you know who sent us that
notice about all those explosives?
Robert E. Lee, that's who and he
is a Lieutenant in the U. S. Navy.
Now, here is where our noticing
leaves us. We didn't notice that
Robert E. Lee had given up the
command of the Southern Army,
much less gone off and joined up
with the Yankee Navy.
But he signed it himself, as big
as life.

Another thing we noticed.
,Being a Rotarian, we would par-
ticularly notice this.
'It is common knowledge among
the Rotary camp that the Kiwan-
ians are hard up for members.
It has been evidenced time and
time again (especially by Rotar-
ians) that this is a fact.
Well we are an eye witness to
just how hard up they are for good
members now.
Tuesday, Wilbur Thursbay, the
Kiwanis publicity agent, called us
up and said, "Wes, old boy, I'll give
you a brand new Oldsmobile if you
will make it to Kiwanis Club with
me on Tuesdays to write up our
meetings, which I'm supposed to
do and pass on to you". "All right,
Flash," we sez, "if you will throw
in a free meal and explain the sit-
uation to my Rotarian buddies".
Well Wilbur was'so wrought up
right then trying to get his club's
publicity out that he would almost
agree to anything.
And to, and behold, when we got
to the eating, or meeting place,
they had a woman up there trying
to induct her into the club. And
a good looking woman too.
We will hereby let the wives of
the Kiwanians find out just .who
the woman was that they were 'ry
ing to induct into the club.

Boat Landing Area Now Ready For

Use; Located At End of Fifth Street


Work neared the finish on the
city's new boat basin built out into
St. Joseph's Bay at the foot of Fifth
Street.
The basin has been dredged out
to a depth of four feet at low tide
and has an oyster shell ramp for
the loading and unloading of boats.
Plans are now to line the banks of
the channel with rip-rap to keep
the channel from filling in again.
Already the channel is ready for
use with several boats being parked
in the area and many more making
use of the facility to unload their
boats in the bay.


Entire Week's Baby
Output Is Female

The ladies of Port St. Joe are
trying to bear out the English
professor's opinion that women
are more important than men.
That's the English professor on
the $64,000.00 Question whose
category is "Male and Female".
To bear out this fact, all of
the new mothers out at the Mu-
nicipal Hospital this past week-
all eight of them-gave birth to
little baby girls.

Town Team Defeats

Apalachicola 83-65

The local basketball team defeat-
ed Apalachicola 83-05 in a well-
played, controlled game. The Ro-
tary-Lion team led the Oystermen
the whole game but with eight min-
utes had a one point lead. With
deadly shooting and good passing
the local team quickly .broke away
to win by 18 points. Bascom Ham
led the winners with 21.
The AllStars lost to the Wing
Team of Tyndall by six points in a
hard fought game. Adams scored 25
for the airmen. Williams and Iver-
son 18 apiece, the score being 76-
70.

The problem that disturbs us as
a business man, a taxpayer, and a
.citizen of the world is, 'Where is
the money coming from?'
Today's business often consists
of matters that should have been
attended to yesterday-alas and
alack.

trict and men in the same age cate-
gory (or the heart attack stage)
of the 'St. Joe Paper Company will
meet in a game to the death-the
death of polio-on the local High
School gymnasium. You will see
the real thing in basketball with
such strong robust men as Red Ful-
ler, C. W. Long, John Robert Smith,
and George Cooper fighting for the
business men right down to the
last whistle.
And there will be those speed de-
mons of the hardwood, little but
fast, such as Bill Tharpe, Pat Shan-
non, Paul Fensom, Syd Brown and
Lawrence Bissett.
It is hoped that the officers Mur-
dock A. Kelly and H. W. Griffin
will restrict speeding on the court
as the referees. Their presence in
this capacity is not assured as yet,
but they are being worked on to
fill the positions.
Doctors and nurses will be on
hand to handle any injuries that
might arise. Coaches of both teams
will have plenty of substitutes and
most likely will not let one of their
valuable players run the length of
the court but once (if they make It
that one time).
The game is being played strictly
for amusement and against polio.
All proceeds will go !' Othe March
of Dimes.'
Game time is at 7:30 tonight.
Another fine ball game will fol-
low this debacle with the Panama
City All-Star team playing the fast
improving local town team at 8:15.


C. W. Long and John R. Smith
will operate a sporting goods, sweet
shop between halves.

March on polio.


Florida's Attorney General, Rich-

Police Nab 12 More

Traffic Violators

Port St. Joe's police depart-
ment this week passed out 12
fine tickets in their current
campaign to crack down on
reckless driving practices thru-
out the city streets.
in police court Monday night
there were five cases of run-
ning a stop sign. Each was.
fined $5.00. Seven cases of
reckless driving were brought
up, each having a fine of $20.00
levied against them.



Spring Court Term

CST Monday, February 4 to try a
docket of 11 cases.
Judge E. C. Welch of Marlanna
will preside on the bench.
Possession of moonshine tops the
list of complaints with four cases
coming up with that charge.
Those coming up for trial and
their charges are:
George E. Towe, possession of

dy for the coming year.
Costin asked for the opinion In
the light of a constitutional prohibi-
tion barring any member of the Leg-
islature from holding a "lucrative
office or appointment under the
United States or this state."
Ervin 'ruled that Costin was be-
ing hired by the Gulf County Com-
mission rather than holding an of-
fice of government. But he added
that in, spite of any official opinion
"the Htouse of Representatives is
the judge of the qualifications ef
its members."
As you will remember, Costin,
Ben Dickens and Silas R. Stone ap-
plied for the job as prosecuting at-
torney to the. County Commission-
ers at their organization meeting
on January 8.
Dickens attacked Costin's eligi-
bility to serve as prosecuting at-
torney and still retain his seat as
Representative of Gulf County. He
offered several passages from the
laws of Florida, the 'Florida Consti-
tution and a ruling from the Su-
preme Court to support his argu-
ment. According to Dickens Cos-
tin will automatically be unseated
as Representative if he accepts the
job of the County.
Commissioner George Cooper had
nominated C ,.-na t. the position
and Commissioner A. J. Strickland
had nominated IDickens. Neither
received a second to their nomina-
tions and the Commission was stale-
mated on the question until a mo-
tion was made at the last meeting
to withhold appointment unil an
opinion could be secured from the
Attorney General.
County Attorney David Carl Gas-
kin went to Tallahassee last week
to secure an opinion from Ervin.
He was assured by the Attorney
General's office that 'before the
next meeting of the Commission
('Feb. 5) the would offer an opinion
on the matter or would make
known his intention not to make an
opinion.
Monday, Ervin said that in his
opinion Costin would be eligible to
serve without jeapordizing his seat
in the Legislature.
'In the January meeting, David
Carl Gaskin was named to hold the
position until the opinion could be
obtained from Ervin. It is to be as-
sumed that in Tuesday's meeting of
the Commission a decision will be
reached on the matter.

Accidents can be prevented if
we show consideration on 'the high-
way and if we treat a car as one
of the most deadly weapons we
can have in our hand's. This was a
warning sounded by Frank Esk-
ridge of -Panama City, when he
spoke before the ParentTeacher
Association of the Port St. Joe
High School Thursday night. Mr.
Eskridge is Troop 'Safety Officer
for :the Western 14 counties of
Florida. Mr. Eskridge who has
spoken on safety in this city twice
previously, emphasized that chil-
dren need to know the right way to
handle a motor vehicle. Will power,
know-how and attitude are the im-
portant factors. Giving high school
credits for taking driver-training
courses is, in his opinion, more im-
portant than any course we could
teach. "Not the kind of teaching
that parents teach their children,
because we cannot set an example
for the way accidents are happen-
ing every day in our time." A well-
trained driver is the only hope for
the next generation.
"Driving too close to the car in
front of you is the number one real
cause of accidents" he stated. Oth-
er real causes of accidents are fail-
ing to give the right of way, proper
signaling for right or left turns, and
crossing the center of the line.
,He stated statistics showing that
accidents were caused not by
"drunkards" or "speedsters" as
many people think but 'by people
who have had years of experience
driving and -have never had an ac-
cident.
Using, as an example, he stated
the case where a man that had driv,
en his car for 20 years over tae
same road every day, ran through
a draw that was open and landed
on a barge that was being towed
through the bridge. When asked
how it happened, he said .that he
never saw the red light or heard
the bell. The officer, asked him If
he also missed seeing the four cars
hat he passed on the bridge.
In summing up his talk, Mr. Esk-
ridge stated that even though every


safety precaution is taken and more
highway patrol officers are patrol-
ling the highways today, these ter-
rible accidents mount each year.
'Learning to obey traffic signs cor-
rect hand signals and insisting that
our families and friends use them,
too, can have good effect in our
community. Highway safety begins
at home, in practice and proper at-
titude. People should be more con-
-cerned with the conservation of
life.
Mr. Eskridge was introduced by
T. M. Aplin, local highway patrol-
man. Mr. Aplin was introduced by
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin. Also
speaking on 'behalf of the Safety
Drive of .the city was Mayor Joe
Sharit.
Mrs. Paul Fensom conducted a
brief business session.
'Members of the Trl4Hi-Y Club
served refreshments.

A teacher's training class was
held last week by Dr. Archie Dil-
lard of Charlotte, N. C., for the
Presbyterian Church. Excellent ad-
vice for the improvement of the
Sunday School and on winning peo-
ple to Christ was given by Dr. Dil-
lard.
'The last session was spent in his
special field of help to alcoholics.
Dr. Dillard showed the marvelous
results of this Christian cure for
this great problem. One man who
had been in 37 institutions was
healed and is now an outstanding
church leader. Two thousand men
have been treated in Hebron Col-
ony near Boone N. C.
Dr. Dillard told also of the work
Women seem to have even a great.
er problem, for they won't face thoe
facts of their need. Most of the
women problems are from the so-
called upper crust who were accept-
able social drinkers in the nice
clubs and groups of nice little sou-
thern towns.
'Of all the drinkers, the social
drinker is the most dangerous and
250,000 emerge each year as alco-
holics. The most harmful church
member is the one who does take
the "sober" drink. He strongly
showed how church leadership haa
failed at this point in our American
society.

ARE WE GETTING OUR MONEY'S WORTH
We hate to get back on it but we feel that we must.
Several times in this column we have expressed ourselves
on the matter of insufficient heat at the grammar schools. Fin-
ally we were assured that the heating plant had been put into
good operating condition and was giving off sufficient heat to
keep the buildings warm. And we are not now doubting that
the existing facilities will do the job.
It was brought to our attention in a round about way
that during the last cold spell, with temperatures hovering around
the freezing mark most of the day for two or three days that
there was insufficient heat in at least one of the buildings. In fact
it was nearly freezing in the building. Children and teachers sat
huddled around all day in their coats, trying to study. We
checked further into the matter all last week and found the sit-
uation to be true. These same sources assured us that they
have had heat on some cold days and that 'heat was available.
The question we would like to raise, is why wasn't
there heat on every cold day? If it is available for some of the
days, it should be available for every day.
We were told, and we couldn't verify the fact, that
weather) and the plant was turned off.
We feel that if the heating plant is not kept locked it
should be fixed immediately. If the plant is locked during hte
night, a limited number of keys should be made available to
someone had tampered with the heating plant during the night
(it had reportedly been left burning all night due to the' cold
prevent a recurrence. If it was a human failure it should be
never allowed to happen again. Several parents took their
children back home when they found out how cold the class-
rooms were.
We are' going to do all in our power to see that the
schools have an adequate amount of money to see that out
children receive the proper instruction and school facilities. But
we are going to be one of the first to say something when we
feel that we are not getting our money's worth. We don't want
too much, but we do expect to get a dollar's worth of service
for a dollar spent. Maybe the best of heating facilities are not
available, but at least we should see that we have it utilized to
the utmost.

IF WE ARE TO GROW
We have repeatedly heard from outside industrialists in
a Chamber of Commerce type of speech that Port St. Joe is
destined to grow into an industrial city.
These industrialists didn't talk about our pine trees, our
climate, our fishing, our hunting or our labor pool nor did they
talk about our lack or abundance of housing.


lhe r1 U1j111 4ttTil ii'osi td in ,-'* "'L,, pep' talk we
have herd, and mbost lately by the president of the \li%. l Chec-
ical and Dye Corporatiotn, was our fine harbor.
Port St. Joe has one of the finest natural, but undevel-
oped, harbors along the Gulf coast. Port St. Joe is in close
proximity to inland supplies and to Gulf Coast and South Ameri-
can markets. We have the harbor, but no loading or storage
facilities, The St. Joe Paper Company and Southeast Terminals
have their own docks here, but no facilities are available for
strictly commercial shipping.
We would like to point out that over 100 years ago,
when shipping wasn't the tremendous business that it is today
that Port St. Joe was as large as it is today -- and supported
solely by its shipping trade.
When we think of what a frontier the Gulf Coast was
in those days and of the hustle and bustle along this area and
even further South today, we would believe that Port St. Joe is
literally "missing the boat" in a good source of revenue.
Docks and warehouses cost a whale of money. That
we know. But we believe that some serious thought and action
should be given to this matter. We have a port authority that
is probably working along these lines. Possibly a little help given
them would give the impetus needed to start something going.
Such a project would aid the whole county. Possibly
the County Commission should be called in on the project. It
could just be that the County, as a whole, could make Gulf County
the port of the South.
These are just random thoughts, but we, sincerely be-
lieve that if shipping could support a city of 4,000 120 years ago,
it could make this County grow that much and more in the
present day of hustle and bustle and a boom of shipping that
is going on around us every day.

Florida Teachers Have Chance To Win

Advanced Study Awards From Clubs


Outstanding Florida teachers
have an opporutnity to win an ad-
vanced study award, to be present-
ed by the state's Federated Wo-
men's Clubs before March 1. An-
nouncement was made by Mrs. C.
M. Washburn, president of the
Florida Federation of Women's
Clubs.
The awards are part of a nation-
wide program devised by the Gen-
eral Federation of Women's Clubs
when that organization became con-
cerned with the increasing shortage
of teachers. Reaching to every com-
munity in the nation where a fed-
erated club exists, the program
hopes to recruit a 'good part of the
estimated 350,000 teachers that will
be needed during the next four
years.
It is also concerned with encour-
aging young people into teaching
careers, formulating and promoting
legislation to provide adequate sal-
aries for teachers, and urging com-
munities to increase teacher pres-
tige by including them in outstand-
ing local activities.
The State Federation has asked
all federated clubs to appoint an
Awards Committee in their com-
munities at once. These six-member
committees are to include one mem-
ber each from the local federated
clubs, the Parent-Teacher Associa-
tion the superintendent of school,
the Chamber of Commerce. church
organizations in the community and
civic groups. All candidates are to
be recommended by individuals,
schools or othe interested groups
in the community. Judging by each
awards :committee will be based on
scholastic qualifications, humanitar-
ian attitude toward students, out
standing work above and beyond
required duties and obligations, and
interest in community, state and
binational affairs. 'Recommendations
should 'be sent as early as pos-sible
to 4the federated club or clubs spon-
siring the program in the local com-


munity. Winning" teachers will re-
ceive the award in the form of cash,
scholarship or an expense fund for
summer 'training.

Budget Is Attacked

By Cong. Bob Sikes

WASHINGTON, D. C.-Congress-
man Bob Sikes made the Collowing
speech on the floor 'of the House of
Representatives this week concern-
ing the Eisenhower budget for fiu-
cal year 1958:
"Mr. Speaker:
"With no desire whatever for in-
jecting partisanship, I must call at-
tention to the fact that we have
before us the highest peacetime
budget in history. Each Eisenhower
budget that has been submitted to
the Congress has called for a high-
er total figure. This cannot be at-
tributed to defense, for security ex-
penditures account for only half of
the increase. Non-defense costs are
up about five billions of dollars
since the first Eisenhower budget

was submitted 'to Congress.
"The so-called welfare state con-
tinues to grow at an astounding
rate despite an all-time high in em-
ployment and in general prosperity.
"The present precarious balance
in 'the budget is due not to ,savings
and economy in 'government, but to
the highest tax collections in lhis-
tory. We should be genuinely alarm-
ed by the fact that expenditures of
government are going right out of
the top of the tent and there seems
to be no determined and coordinat-
ed efforts in the Administration to
check this trend. The tax cut's which
are so gTeatly desired by the public
are obviously impossible unless the
Congress will drastically slash Ad-
ministration spending proposals. I
believe the Congress musst assert
ts constitutional authority and ma-
terially reduce the budget now be-
ore us."
