Sharks Grid Squad
Shaping Up Into
A Good Team
The St. Joe High Sharks have
completed 'their second week of
pre-school drills. The squad is now
rounding into good physical condi-
tion as a result of the sprints which
squad members have been running
every morning as part of the train-
The personnel picture is coming
into focus as Ithe Sharks continue
to work primarily on the timing of
plays and conditioning. Terry Hi-
note, who has switched from tackle
to left end has the inside track on
that position. Hinote should block
well from the end position as well
as receive passes in fine style. Da-
vid Musselwhiii is making a strong
bid for this position also. He could
well take it over if Hinote lets up.
Billy Denton is -the only man
working at the right end spot at
the present time. He was a regu-
lar last year at that position. Mick.
ey Munn is expected to challenge
him for the position when he re-
.ports to the squad.
Larry Mansfield is the leading
contender for the left tackle slot.
He is one of the fastest men on
,the team and could be a fine foot.-
ball player if he applies himself.
Big Gene Cox, who is 6' 5" tall nd
weighs 225 pounds may have some-
thing 'to say about who plays hte
position however. The coaching
staff has been pleasantly surprised
with Cox's attitude. He is only in
.the ninth grade. Terry Porter, a
determined sophomore is also %
candidate and should see some ser-
Sonny Chafin is the top left guard
at this writing. Chafin is one of the
roughest men in the Shark line.
He will be a key man in the Shark
defense. He is also a rugged block-
er. William Lucas and Leonard
Costin are built for the guard po-
sition and are making Chafin work
for his -top ranking.
The important center position is
manned by senior Charles Boyer
and Junior Bill Chism. Boyer is the
leading contender, but Chism may
replace him. Boyer could ,protect
his position with aggressive play.
Alex Gaillard and Ken Hurlbut
are waging a battle for the right
guard berth. Gaillard is the quicker
of the two and may have a slight

it's a Shame a MeFridian Didn't
Make That "Uinderella Discovery"
(The Washington County News)
The power or advertisug is being demonstrated by the
"discovery", and attendant publicity, of a "mountain Cinderella"
in North Carolina. 'ihe mountain maiden, from a remote region,
is allegedly unspoiled by contact with the outside world.
She is reported to be endowed with a breath-taking beauty
and a native wisdom seldom possessed by one individual. In
her innocence of worldly affairs, we gather from the feature
articles, that she s totally unaware of the baser motives of man-
We hope she isn't disillusioned. Our world, particularly
the so-called civilized portion of it, can be a raw place in which
to live. We're not so sure, therefore, whether her "benefactors"
have increased her chances of usefulness or happiness by thrust-
ing her upon the outside world so suddenly.
Virtually unknown outside her mountain community only
a few weeks ago, the girl has almost overnight become an inter-
national figure. She has commanded more newspaper space
than President Eisenhower or any member of the U. S. govern-
ment since her "discovery". The nation's motion picture stars
have gone ahead with their marrying and divorcing almost un-
noticed during the period. Marilyn Monroe's operation was barely
chronicled in the press. Presley, "Hown Oawg" and all, has been
pushed into the background.
Yes, the mountain miss is suddenly a celebrity. The outside
world, once so distant and obscure, is suddenly being virtually
served up as "her oyster." We're glad this has become her good
fortune, if that's what ic is. We hope it increases her happiness
and her capacity for usefulness. But we wonder what influence
all the whoop-to-do will have on her outlook on life.
We're sorry however that some members of the Florida
Development Commission didn't beat their North Carolina news-
paper cousins to the draw by making the "Discovery" down here
on the "bend of the creek" some place. Then Florida could have
cashed in on all the reams of publicity that have gone free tc
the Tarheel State.

Scisson stated htat Gulf County

Scisson stated that the local
schools were getting away from
the superfluous subjects and deal-

ses of math, English and social stu-
dies. The reason for this, Scisson
stated was that tehse are the only
required subjects now for getting

extra courses are being offered but
that the emphasis is not being plac-
ed on them so much.

Women Age 62
Can Get Payments
Women age 62 and over have
been able to file for theri social
security -benefits since last fall,
John V. Carey, District Manager,
Panama City, Social Security Of-
fice, said this week. The lower re-
tirement age for women was pro-
ylded in 'ithe 1956 changes to the
social security law.
'Working women under age 65 and
wives of retired social security
beneficiaries will have their social
child is entitled to a benefit, Ca-
security benefits reduced if no
child is entitled to a benefit, Carey
added. There is no reduction in the
benefits to a woman at age 62 if
she can b epaid a social security
benefit as a wido war as a depend-
ent mother. Filing for the reduced
benefit for a working woman or a
wife under age 65 will almost al-
ways give more in the total amount
of social security benefits. The
working woman will generally be
ahead for 15 full years by taking
the .reduced benefit, and the wife
under the age of 65 will generally
be ahead for 12 full years by taking
the reduced benefit.
Women who are affected by this
provision in .he social security law
will begin to lose their rights 'to
-some social security benefits if they
do not file their application before
December 1957, Carey continued. -
