Saints Win 2 Lose

1 Over The Week

This past week the St. Joe Saints
have seen plenty of action and
have emerged with two wins, suf-
fering one defeat.
Friday, May 31 the Saints played
Apalachicola on the Oystermen's
home diamond. The game was full
of excitement. Maxwell got himself
a home run over the left field fence.
Howard Rogers, who is leading the
league with his hitting got himself
two triples and one double. Jimmy
Philyaw cut at one hard and almost
knocked the flag pole down in cen-
ter field, getting himself a triple.
If the ball had been hit in any
other park in the league, it would
have been a home run. The winner
of the game wasn't decided until
the last man was out. The Saints
scored a 10-9 victory. Monk Ste-
vens was the winning pitcher.
Panama 6, Saints, 5
Sunday afternoon the Saints
again met defeat by the same club
that beat them earlier in the sea-
son, Panama City. The Saints play-
ed Panama City on even terms but
the errors proved the difference.
The final score was Panama City
6, the Saints, 5.

Tuesday night the Saints ace left

game while giving up three hits
and striking out nine men from

All Bids Exceed Money Set Aside For Projects



Contracts Awarded For Gulf Ctealth Units


Contract to construct two health
clinics in Gulf County, one in Port
St. Joe and the other at Wewahit-
chka, was awarded ,provisionally, to
J. L. Lark of Panama City.
Lark bid $42,826.00 on the Wewa-
hitchka clinic and $44,676.00 on the
St. Joe Clinic. His bid provided for
$100 deduction from the total bid
in the event he was low bidder on
both structures..
The provisional factor enters in-
to the picture at this. point because:
Only $30,700 is available for
building construction of the Wewa-
hitchka clinic. Lark's bid is $52,-
826.
Only $36,100 is available for


building construction of the Port
St. Joe clinic. Lark's bid was for
$44,676.
Thus the lowest bid is roughly
$20,000 in excess of what federal
authorities have granted for actual
construction. The total Lark bid is
$87,402.00. The total government
building construction allotment is
$66,800.00.
(Actually, a $90,000 figure was
set by the federal government, but
this figure includes every expense.
Of this total, $6'6,600 was authoriz-
ed to be spent o nthe buildings
themselves. The remaining $23,200
is set up to pay for architect fees,
clinic sites, G1 and G2 equipment


for the buildings, and a small day morning of last week at the
amount for contingencies, such as court house, after the bids had
possible minor changes in building been open, that he was almost posi-

Altogether, nine firms submitted

St. Joe.
Second low bidder was the Glov-
er Construction Co., of Tallahas-
see. It bid $44,951.00 on the St. Joe
clinic and $42,964.00 on the Wewa-
hitchka clinic. A. M. Williams was
third low bidder on the St. Joe
clinic with a bid of $45,495.00. Al-
britton Williams of Quincy was
third low bidder on the Wewa
clinic with a bid of $43,303.00.

'Liquid aluminum sulfate is used
in paper manufacturing and in wa-
ter treatment. In paper manufac-
turing, it is used to "size" paper.
In the case of writing paper, the
"sizeing" has to do with how well
the paper will take ink. In water
treatment, the chemical is used
to soften the water.
The local plant of the General
Chemical Division is beginning op-
eration with one customer-the St.
Joe Paper Company. It will begin
on an eight hour a day, five day a
week schedule with two men work-
ing full time at the plant. As the
number of customers increases, the
manpower and working hours will
increase.
According to John D. Sunday, su-
pervisor of the southeast opera-
tions of the General Chemical Di-
vision with headquarters in Jack-
sonville, the plant is expecting to
grow much in this area. He fore-
saw a great potential for their pro-
duct in this immediate area. The
raw materials used in the local
plant are bauxite and sulphuric
acid which will be shipped here
from other Ge: -'a Chemical plants
in Baton Rouge and Savannah.
'Operators of the local plant will
be John H. Turnham, foreman and
Henry Chason, assistant. Turnham
has been with General Chemical
for five years and has recently
moved to Port St. Joe with his
wife. They have no children. Turn-
ham is a graduate of the University
of Alabama. Chason is well known
in Port St. Joe and has a large
part in school and civic affairs of
the city.
Other than aluminum sulfate the
General Chemical Division is
a large manufacturer of sulphuric
acid, phosphates, insecticides and
Fine chemicals. The General Chem--
ical Division is one of six
branches of Allied Chemical and
Dye Corporation and General Chem-
ical itself operates 45 plants thru-
out the United States and Canada.
General ChemiePl's Orchard Brand
insecticides are well known and
widely used by farmers in this
area.
The George G. Tapper Company
was the prime contractor in the
construction of the local plant.
The construction was under the
supervision of Parker Johnson of
the General Chemical Division of
New York. Johnson will leave this
city about the middle of the month.

Why Not Annex With Port St. Joe?

Tuesday, June 18 is election day in Highland View. On
that day this thriving little community on the edge of Port
St. Joe will vote on whether or not it will become an incorporated
community.
Certainly a community the size of Highland View needs
incorporation. It needs a centralized water service. It needs
sewer facilities. It needs police and more adequate fire protec-
tion. It needs garbage collection. Highland View is an area.
of high concentration of septic tanks. The residents must be
counted on to carry off garbage and refuse. Surely the high con-
centration of septic tanks in the low lands in this area cannot be
the best thing for sanitation. Septic tanks depends on the
surrounding soil to take up the waste. The soil in this area is
already so damp immediately below the surface that septic
tanks leave a lot to be desired. And certainly with the wide-
spread war on mosquitoes and other insects throughout the
state, it is imperative that garbage and refuse be disposed of
regularly to keep down these pests.
But as we know, these needed services cost a lot-of
money. But if an efficient service is rendered, the money is
well spent. The money to offer these services can come only
through taxes and charging for the services.
In light of this fact, we would urge the leaders of High-
land View to consider incorporating into the City of Port St.
Joe. The present city limits of ,Port St. Joe come almost to the
proposed city limits of Highland View. Port St. Joe's water and
sewer facilities are only a short distance from Highland View.
As a matter of fact, they are closer to this area than they are to
the bulk of the Port St. Joe area. Port St. Joe already gives ifre
protection to Highland View under the St. Joe Fire Control dis-
trict. With the addition of a water system and fire plugs in
this area, the efficiency of this service would be 10-fold.
Considering homestead exemptions, the tax burden on
future tax payers of Highland View would be heavy, to say the
least., From an economic standpoint we believe it would be to
Highland View's advantage to incorporate into Port St. Joe. We
know Port St. Joe has some of the best water in the state and
the services rendered by this city are efficient and dependable.
This means a lot. Their rate of charge is reasonable by the fact
of spreading the bill over a large amount of customers.
What with the Legislature going into extra session, it
would mean no loss of time for the residents of Highland View
to get the Representative to pass a bill changing the June 18
referendum to put Highland View into the City of Port St. Joe
in place of an independent community.
The services they desire could be obtained much quicker
if they were part of Port St. Joe and we can assure you, Port
St. Joe would be glad to have you.
Think it over, Mr. and Mrs. Highland View, and see if
you don't agree.,

America'e favorite convertible Is one of 21 Ford models for 1957


There's no need to pay a "fancy price" to enjoy fine-car
luxury. Ford is lowest priced* of the low-price three, yet
offers values you'd expect only in cars costing far more!


To start with, you can easily pay twice
the money, and not find lines that can
hold a candle to Ford's for lowness,
' loveliness, or just plain good taste.
S But step inside. That's when you'll
find the real evidence of Ford's quality!
And, on the way in, note that Ford
offers door checks that hold doors open
in either of two positions-for easy en-
trance or exit. A little thing. But, in a
fine car, why not? Then, inside, notice
how comfortable those .plush, foam-
rubber seats are. They'll stay that way.
And on long trips. For they're scientif-
ically contoured over non-sag springs.
Your rear-seat passengers are treated


extra kindly, too-with spring assists to
help them open and close the doors-
with the most leg room in Ford's field!
Fine cars are smooth-asd that's
another place Ford really shows its stuff!I
Ford delivers its famous V-8. power
smooth as a whisper. That's because
only Ford takes the pains to electron-
ically balance each engine while run-
ning under its own power. Not even the
makers of the most expensive automo-
biles go this far to bring you supper-
smooth performance.
Ford rides fine-car smooth and quiet,
too. You can thank the new "Inner
Ford" for that. Ford, for instance, has


a swept-back front suspension that
actually "rolls with the punch" of every
road bump.
Ford's rear springs automatically ad-
just to give the right ride for every
road. And Ford keeps things quiet, with
the most sound insulation in its field.
Fine cars are
built to stay solid. So's Ford
Ford has the only frame in its field to
make use of rugged tubular steel beams.
No car at the price offers so many rerf-
strengthening beams. Expensive cars
aren't built of thicker body steel or with
sounder engineering skill. Then, of
course, in Ford you can have all the
power assists and other conveniences
found in fine cars. And they cost far less
in Ford.* Yes sir! In every feature, every
part, Ford is the fine car -it half the
fine-car price. Come in and see!


Get in on the fun and savings now P I

WORLD OUTDOORS
By BUKE BENNETT




* /ANY an ardent angler, hiker
or camper will -allow his en-
joyment of the great world out-
doors to always be somewhat less
enjoyable when he travels or visits
,areas inhabited by poisonous
snakes.
Few indeed are 'those who do
not have a fear-or at least some
healthy respect for the rattle-
snake and the cottonmouth. They
are dangerous and bite from eith-
er, whether the snake be a large
or small one, is certain to be ex-
tremely painful, if not fatal.
Yet a constant fear of encoun-
tering a snake-off being bitten
by one-should not spoil your out-
door fun. When in snake territory,
be alert. If you are wading a south-
ern stream inhabited by cotton-
mouths, be cautious of brush piles,
tree tops and stumps along the
bank. If you must cross a danger-
ous-looking spot, make some noise.
Give the snake a chance and he
will get out of ydur way. The rat-
tlesnake will generally give you
a warning when you tread near his
domain. The wisest thing to do
when you hear this danger signal
is to stop, immediately, and lo-
cate the aroused rattler. Then, if
you are really smart, give him as
wide a berth as possible.
Some individuals-whom I be-
lieve fear snakes more than others
-develop a hate attitude that leads
them to a one-man campaign to
kill all the snakes in the world. I
have known some expert and en-
thusiastic fishermen who would
shake a two-pound bass off their
line in order to get a boat over to
the bank and kill a big moccasin
before he got away. This is the sort
of activity that brings about snake-
bite. And these one-*nan cam-
paigns certainly will never com-
pletely kill off our snake popula-
tion.

Vault To Resist Nuclear Blastr

:. ,B .


Resistance of a bank vault to a nuclear blast will be tested
at the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission's Nevada test site
this spring, in cooperation with the Federal Civil Defense
Commission. The structure to be tested consists of a specially-
engineered, steel-lined concrete vault sealed by a reinforced
Mosler Safe Company 10-inch thick "Century" vault door.
Although a Mosler vault withstood the first atomic blast
at Hiroshima, Mosler feels "there is a need for better infor-
mation on the resistance of protective equipment which can
be obtained under the more precise and controlledcon9dig s
of a nuclear test." ...


Chevy's come up with the new-
est, sweetest, smoothest auto-
matic drive-Turboglide. It's
the first and only triple-turbine
transmission!

Turboglide is something really new
and different in automatic drives.
In the first place, there's only one
forward-speed position on the con-
trol panel. There's no "Low"
needed.
Turboglide handles everything
with the oil-smooth action of
triple turbines. You travel from a
standstill to top cruising speeds
with never a lurch or lag to mar
your motion.

"Home" again, he has another re-
markable experience. Let's see
what we can learn from his exper-
iences.
Jacob Was Greatly Afraid
Twenty years before, Jacob had
said that the Lord would be his
God. In the "Land where he was
living" the conditions and events
weer not very conducive to spirit-
ual growth. Jacob had become in-
volved with the everyday problem
of starting a home and family, and
with making a liin gfor them. Now
he had come to the place that he
could not feel the protective pres-
ence of the Lord.
God had been faithful to his end
of the covenant with Jacob, but
Jacob had lost sight of his side of
it. The weakening effect of these
undedicated years now caused him
to be afraid. And he was particu-
larly afraid of his brother, who
should have been his best friend.
His. fear was such that he selft his
wives and children ahead of him
into the dangers. Do we send our
wives and our children before us?
He wpo haa. not the abiding pres-
'ence ofsthe Lord as his Gad in his
life, will surely come upon fearful
days. "The wicked flee when no
man pursueth". Prov. 28:1.
Jacob Strongly Resisted
'ihe greatest need of anyone who
is out of fellowship with God, is to
get right with God. Yet strangely
enough, man will resist when ef-
fort is made to draw him into the
fold. While he was fearfully pray-
ing on the banks of the river, a
heavenly being in the form of a
man began to strive with him, and
Jacob resisted every urge and ev-
ery manifestation of the divine will.
His old fleshly "Supplanter" spirit
strove to supplant the will of
God.
Multitudes today, who need to
get right with God are resisting
every impulse from God, and in
every conceivable way, not realiz-
ing that their. only hope lies in
yielding to Him.
Jacob Was Crippled
The very center and source of
our strength must be "Touched"


and broken and withered, as was
Jacobs. He is foolish, indeed, who
thinks he can live in his own
strength, or overcome the powers
of evil by and of himself.
Our strength is sufficient only
for resisting; while His strength
is sufficient for overcoming all ene-
mies.
Jacob Now Clings
RHaving ,dissipated his own
strength in foolish and useless re-
sistance, Jacob now becomes a
clinger. "I will not let thee go ex-
cept Thou bless me". He now has
the right attitude and is about
ready to receive a blessing.
A broken and contrite heart
springing forth into a helpless cry
of entire dependence and trust
will always insure a changed life.
A new name, Israel, was given him,
meaning "Prince".
Jacob Testifies
"I have seen God face to face".
Vs. 30. No man can remain the
same as before after he has seen
God. Such a vision will blind the
eyes to the pleasures of this
world.
Not only .did he testify by word,
but henceforth by his walk. It is
thought that he limped in his walk,
as a constant reminder to him of
his own powerlessness, and as an
unending testimony to the world
that he had gotten right with God.
Before this, Jacob could not get
along with either his. brother Esau
or his father-in-law Laban. The best
and sure way to get right with men
is to first get right with God.


Now note the benediction on him THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
-"The sun rose on him" Vs. 31.
The sun of God's .grace and power
will surely shine upon us when
we have yielded completely to him. LAFF 01
"And Esau ran to meet him."

Dr. Paulinb Fertsch Talks To Rotarians

On Mental Health and Its Effects
In keeping with the advent of
Mental Health Week in Rotary last WHS Seniors
week, Dr. Pauline Fer.tsch, psycho-
logist of the Bay County clinic To Graduate
spoke to the Rotary Club Thursday


on this timely subject that is much
discussed throughout the nation
today.


"Mental health" said Dr. Fertsch
"Is everyday attitudes of human
beings. Some have normal attitudes
and some do not. Those who do
not are the ones that mental clin-
ics throughout the nation arl) cont
cerned with."
The insane is not the bulk of the
psychologist's load of work, ac-
cording to Dr. Fertsch. Those who
have problems too severe to take
ordinary confession partners, such
as family, pastor, priest, etc. into
their confidence. These are the
ones that make up the psycholo-
gists's work load.
Dr. Fertsch wandered back to
the dark ages when plagues, di-
seases and famine were man's
mortal enemies. Today with most
of the old plagues and diseases
conquered, worry replaces them as
the number one curse to mankind.
And with worry has come the need
for psychologists. Dr. Fertsch 11Blam-
ed worry, anxiety and such allied
mental tortures for all the cause
of her work.
Dr. Fertsch declared to the club
that mental patients throughout the
nation occupy more hospital beds
than all other diseases of
the physical being combined. She
declare& that Florida was high on
the ladder in mental disease treat-
ment and said that the Florida
State mental hospitals were a mo-
del that other Southern states
were copying.
Guests of the club Thursday were
Parker Johnson, John Sundy, Lee
Hostettler, Ken Boardman and
Charlie Pluter, all guests of George
Tapper.

F. M. Hall Tried

On Forest Burning

Dr. F. M. Hall, Negro dentist at
Port St. Joe, was found guilty Mon-
day, May 27, in county court, of
failing properly to watch a fire he
had set on Jan. 15 on property at
Money Bayou.
The six man jury found Hall not
guilty on two other charges, those
of failure to give proper notice and


of not maintaining proper fire pr&e
vention equipment on the premises
while conducting the burning.
William Gilbert of the Forestry
Service testified, In response to
a question from Hall, who acted as
his own council, that Hall had not
made the necessary fire prevention
arrangements.
Broward Wood, a Forestry Ser-
vice employee, testified that he ar-
rived at the scene of the burning
and asked Hall if he needed help
to control the fire. Hall, according
to Wood, said none was needed.
Wood also testified that lie return-
ed to the scene later, found the
area unattended and had to ex-
tinguish several small fires around
stumps.
Jimmy McNeill, landowner whose
land abuts the Hall land, according
to testimony, said on the witness
stand that Hall had given him no
notice of his intention to burn.
When Hall took the stand he
testified that he made the fire in-
tentionally because the land was
full of trash and weeds and lie
wanted to clean up the place. He
said he believed he had taken the
necessary precautions because he
had two tubs of water on hand, in
addition to a shovel and a hoe.
He said he did not know that he
had to notify someone when setting
a fire on or near wooded land.
Hall contended that the fire
could not spread on three sides be-
cause of the Gulf, a swamp and
the highway, and maintained he
had taken adequate precautions
about the fire spreading in the
fourth direction.
Sentence has not been passed in
the case because court costs have
not been computed.

program for Bay and Gulf cctin-
ties.
This action apparently stemmed
from the fact that a number of
bills are reportedly before the Leg-
islature which make provision for
such junior college financing direct-
ly through the school boards af-
fected, and that passage of one or
more of these bill's appears certain.
The County Commission had
earlier printed a notice of legisla-
tion in the Gulf County Breeze with
the purpose of having a local bill
passed in the Lgeislature which
would have enabled the cotnmis-
sion to give the School Board the
necessary sunm on a one time basis.
Bay County Commissioners had
put up $30,000 as its share of the
junior college financing. It is not
known whether, in view of pending
state legislation, they have or in-
tend to withdraw the sum they
have committed.
