And the rains came.
With the rains came the re-ap-
pearance of "Lake Williams".
"Lake Williams" lies in the vicin-
ity of Fourth Street and Williams
Avenue. It is strictly the private
property of the Quality Grocery,
Piggly Wiggly and The Star.
Clarence Pridgeon of the Qual-
ity has visions of having the "lake"
0. C. and Nixon Dykes at the
,Piggly Wiggly are considering
equipping their grocery buggies
with pontoons and outboard kick-
ers to get across.
Clarence Pridgeon's idea is just
wishful thinking. Apparently he
hasn't read the papers of late where
the Governor has signed a bill to
prevent the filling of Florida's
"scenic waterways" and develop-
ment of same.
But we here at The Star have
come up with the solution of hav-
ing "Lake Williams" and living
with it., The only solution is to
stock the "lake" with fish, put in
a few boats, rent the American
Legion building and going"into the
fish landing business.
Then before you know it, the
County Commissioners will force a
portion of the secondary road fund
on us for an access road and we
will be fixed.
Of course, with the passing of
the rains, "Lake Williams" will
cease to exist. But we could con-
struct a tumbler dam and keep it
We heard the other day of an
incident where a group of children
were in swimming on the pier. The
boys got to scuffling on the *wt
pier and in the scuffle, one of the
boys slipped and knocked a five-
year old girl off into the water.
But for the quick action of the
boys present, the girl might have

dren in swimming coming up to use

This event and recent drownings
brings to mind what Bobby Bel-
lows, an accomplished swimmer
and life guard had to say on the
Bobby says that if a person loses
consciousness in the water and ap-
pears to have drowned, prompt ap-
plication of artificial respiration
is the only thing that can save
them. Bobby says he shudders ev-
ery time he hears of someone drag-
ging a victim from the water and
then goes to call an ambulance.
The only safe thing to do is to ap-
ply artificial respiration. Remember
That. It might come in handy some-
While Gulf County received
many good bills passed' in the Le-
gislature, it had one passed that
will do the county good, but needs
some changes made in the text.
We are referring to the natural
gas district bill. The bill gives the
running of the system over to a
five man board appointed by the
governor, and 'not elected by the
people. The bill provides that the
board and not the Florida Public
Utilities Commission shall set the
rates at their discretion. This
should' not be. It also gives the
board the power to float as many
bonds or debentures as they want
and to sell the bonds without bids
if they so desire. The bill also
provides that their gas lines can
be run anyplace they want with
no reservation to be made by the
city or other governing bodies.
Such things in a bill leave loop
holes for skullduggery if the wrong
men were to get appointed to the
board. They should be corrected
immediately to give the people the'
say as to how the gas system is
run and give the people and their
own local governing bodies control
over the system. We don't hold
with the people paying for a pub-
lic utility and the premises needed
to distribute this public utility
without the people having the say-
so as to how it shall be run.
The bill provides that the pro-
fits shall be divided between the
municipalities in the county ac-
cording to the amount of gas each
community. uses, which we go along
with as fair.
We believe the parts we mention
here should be changed immediate-
ly if not sooner.

We would like to call attention
to a letter to the editor in this is-
sue concerning this voting.
We agree with the writers rea-
sons for not incorporating into a
city of its own. We do not how-
ever, agree that Highland View
should not be taken into an incor-
poration-namely the City of Port
St. Joe. This area needs the city
services, as do all the communities
in this low section of the state
from a health standpoint if noth-
ing else. Bit even health, like
everything else can become too
expensive to stay healthy.
.In talking to a leading citizen
of Highland View on coming into
the City of Port St. Joe he raised
the question- "Does St. Joe want
us?" That is a slap in the face of
Port St. Joe. We think it would be
well if the City Commission call
an emergency meeting with the
leaders of Highland View before
Tuesday and .officially welcome
them into the City of Port St. Joe
if they desire to come.
Special awards went to the cen-
ter of interest arrangement made
by Mrs. Carl Armstrong, Mrs. J.
C. Arbogast and Mrs. 1. C. Nedley.

Kiwanians Learn of
Captain Bobby Howell and Pvt.
Gary Howze, both of Apalachicola
gave the Kiwanis club a program
of atomic warfare information and
National Guard "propaganda" at
their Tuesday noon meeting.
Howell, who had recently com-
pleted an atomic warfare school
at Fort Knox, Ky., told the Kiwan-
ians of some of the dangers of
atomic warfare. Howell said that
the thing to be most feared from
an atomic blast was the gamma
rays, which can penetrate any pro-
tective covering known to man.
Howell said that as a result of an
atomic blast, only about 35% of
the people in the immediate area
of the blast would be killed and
these would be from burns, flying
debris, etc. He declared that wpith
the size bombs dropped in Japan,
application of simple first aid would
have prevented 90% of the deaths
resulting from those blasts. Most
of the deaths were due to shock
and cuts and bruises. These dan-
gers from the bomb are practically
negligible in view of the danger
from dangerous radiation Howell
declared. He said that of the three
types of bursts, air, surface and
sub-surface, the sub-surface blast
was to be most feared. The sub-
surface, a blast set off underground
would fling radiated particles into
the sky and cause dangerous fall-
out for years to come. Air blasts,
he said, are practically void of fall-
As a result of a blast, Howell
stated, 35' of the deaths would be
caused by the blast; 50% by heat
and 15% by radiation.
Howell gave some of the hisotry
of the Guard, naming it as the old-
est fighting force in the nation. He
gave the guard's, position as home

tl at the Guard was called up in
time of emergency just as trained

THE present month is usually
known, in our part of the
world, as a time of balm and
bloom and beauty But the poee
thought of days of storm and
grief as bringing their burden in-
to the present. And he asked if,
after the stormy changes, we
should find a "changeless May"?
Days of the past sometimes
reach into the present with dread
results. The accumulation of bad
things may bring their influences
to blight you in the present. On
the calendar the past is gone for-
ever, but the heart feels the hurt
of "unworthy things and, but for
the grace of God, given by faith,
Is influenced toward wrong today.
As you sit alone with your
thought and dark images come to
vex you and tax your strength,
do not yield again to the unworthy
thing that may bring shadows to
your memories. But cling to the
bright images that you find along
the way. In true penitence and the
high resolves of faith, you may
find strength for your time of need.
So you may find a changeless
May and a peace that is unaffect
ed by all changes of weather.

John V. Carey, district bAniager of
the Panama City Social Security
office, said today. With this change
in the Social Security Law insur-
ance protection that has been in
effect for years. As a requirement
for disability consideration every
individual is referred to the State
Vocational Rehabilitation office.
The insurance protection feature
continues as long as the individual
remains completely disabled, Carey
continued. However, if the second
purpose, rehabilitation, is accomp-
lished, of course, the disability in-
surance protection feature is ended.
An individual who had been draw-
ing disability insurance benefits
would stop those benefits after he
had been rehabilitated and was
again able to earn a living. An in-
dividual under the age of 50 who
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, FPd,
had his social security record fro-
zen because of complete disability
would no longer be entitled to the
freeze of his account at the point
of time that he had been rehabilitat-
ed and could begin earning a living.
The Florida State Vocational Re-
habilitation Agency in Tall'ahassee,
is solely responsible for the reha-
bilitation process, Carey added. So-
cial Security offices refer all dis-
ability applicants to the rehabilita-
tion agency as part of the disabili-
ty application process but all ar-
rangements for possible rehabilita-
tion are worked out between the
State Agency and the individual.
Individuals who have been com-
pletely disabled six months or lon-
ger and who have at least five full
years of Social Security employ-
ment credits should contact their
nearest social security office for
disability consideration if they have
not already done so, Carey con-
cluded. The office for this area is

There being no further business

ing did then adjourn.
George Y. Core J. C. Price
After lengthy discussion there was
a motion by Comm. Hardin, Secon-
ded by Comm, Cooper and upon
vote was unanimously carried, that
the low bid submitted by J. I, Lork
in the amount of $87,402.00 be
tentatively accepted, subject to ap-
proval of the U. S. Department of
Public Health Service and the
securing of the additional funds
and that a contract be executed for
said projects as soon as the ap-
proval is obtained from the U. S.
Public Health Service.
The Board directed the Clerk to
go to Tallahassee, and file an ap-
plication with the Florida Devel-
opment Commission, Agent for
the U. S. public Health Service
for additional funds and to make
the necessary budget amendments.
E. C. Harden, Sr., proposed the
adoption of Resolution to hold re-
ferendum election to incorporate
Highland View to be held on Tues-
day, June 18, 1957.
Resolution was adopted to issue
one Additional Certificate in the
amount of $10,000.00 for Gulf Coun-
ty Health Centers.
The Clerk advised the Board, that
in order to comply with the budget
laws of the State of Florida, it will
be necessary for this LBoard to
adopt a supplemental budget for
a fund to be entitled, "Health Cen-
ter Construction Fund" and that
all expenditures in connection with
the construction of the two Health
Centers be payable from said fund
and not from the Capital Outlay
Reserve Fund as previously plan-
ned. After consideration, there was
a motion by Comm. Harden, sec-
onded by Comm. Strickland and
unanimously carried, that the Coun-
ty advertise its intentions of adopt-
ing a Supplemental budget for the
"Health Center Construction Fund"
for the fiscal year ending Septem-
ber 30. 1957., the public hearing on
said budget will be held at the reg-
ular meeting in July, 1957, the
same being July 9, 1957.
Thomnas HT. Daniel, Architect for
the Health Centers, presented his
paftment, that 11n action will be
taken by the department at this
time to close the Customs port
In contacting the Bureau of Cus-
toms, Sikes urged that Carabelle
be continued as an open port and
he has expressed his gratification
that the bureau has agreed to go
along with his request.

What would be the advantages
of incorporating? In answering this
question, one would probably say,
we would have better police protec-
tion, we could get more paved
streets, maybe a sewerage system,
garbage collection and a water sys-
tem. Yes, those benefits, in a mea-
sure usually in time follows an
incorporation, but my, at what ex-
It is estimated to get a sewer-
age system, including a disposal
plant which would be necessary,
put in a water system and pave the
unpaved streets, it would cost a
half million dollars. Who will pay
for it? Not the property owners
because the charter limits taxation
of real estate to one mill which is
trivial. Everybody will pay for it;
the property owners and the non-
property owners. If there are 100
families in Highland View, and if
they remained in Highland View,

it would cost. each fairly approxi-
mately $5,000.00 to get those bene-
fits, and how would you pay for
it? You would pay for It by the
day, week and month, so much to
connect up with the water and sew-
erage systems, so much each month
for the use of them, and a tax on
top of that. The cost would be lim-
ited only by the amount required
to retire bonds floated to put in
these improvements. If the indebt
edness amounted to $5,000.00 a famn
ilv and runs over a period of 20
years, with principal and interest
it would cost each family about
$400.00 per year to get those bene-
fits. You could probably say that
you don't want to do so. Don't be-
lieve this for a minute. There are
ways they can force you to pay it
or make it mighty uncomfortable.
In Port St. Joe, recently, the City.
Commission decided the lots in the
city were not clean enough .to suit
them. Without asking the people
they imposed a law requiring the
people to clean up to suit the city
commission's idea of cleanliness, or
go to jail. That can happen to you.
That reminds me, too, if Highland

Then, what are some of the dis- -.
advantages to incorporation?
First, I would say the prohibi-

live in Highland View. Having to

plus the cost of running the town,
the cost of a City Hall and a jail,

is that the free service we are

the county and are maintained by ;
