NUMBER 2

'The St. Joe Paper Company
Safety Department sent out the fol-
lowing bulletins on driving safet.y
in the vicinity of the local schools
that would be proper for everyone
to follow. For that reason we ace
reproducing the rules and regula-
tions in connection with traffic
safety around the schools as put
out by that office. The safety sug-
gestions are as follows:
i 1. The speed limit in the school
zone is 1 mph.
2. Watch for children running ,
the street.
* 3. You will s.ee a number of cars
parke* in front of the school ob-
structing the children on the side-
walk. A child may dart into tCe
street between a parked car. WMil
you be able to stop?
4. Children or adults do not al-
ways look back when crossing tae
street. You may be coming from
behind to turn the corner.
5. Obey the signals of the school
boy patrol. This boy was given tais
job because the school officials fe.
that he could carry the responsi-
bility. Respect him.
6. During recess time, keep watch-
ing for children. A child may run
in the street chasing a ball.
7. When yonu ake your child or
other children or, 'ron school,
have then get out through the car
door next to the sidewalk and nev-
. ,,- ", the street side.
8. When taking other children
home such as kindergarten or first
and second grades, see that they
safely in the yard before driv-
off. You may back over the
a d or run forward over him.
9. If the blinker lights at the
school zone are not burning, ob-
serve the law anyway. A child may
have stayed late for school.
10. Instruct your children to look
both -ways and backwards before
crossing the street. Wait until all
is clear.
11. Does your small child carry
a knife to ,school? This was a fad
in 1956, which caused great con-
corn.


12. Always stop when the school
bus is loading or unloading no mat-
ter which direction you are travel-
ing.
13. It is your responsibility as a
driver and resident to find out one
location of schools and kindergar-
tens in your community.
14. If your child rides a bicycle
to school, he should -know the au-
tomobile traffic laws and abide by
them.
15. Do you as a parent know the
route your child takes to school?
You might suggest a safer one for
him.
SIt is impossible to think of all the
ways in which your child might get
hurt. We offer this as a guide for
you and your children.

Sharit, Stone, Ellzey, Tharpe


Vie For Second Primary Votes



Gas Tax Gets Resounding Kick Out The Door


A record 1,135 Port St. Joe voters went to the polls Tuesday to cast what was probably
one of the closest votes on record in a field of eight candidates. Incumbent Mayor-Commission-
er, J. L. Sharit was high man in the Mayor-Commissioner race with a one vote margin over his
nearest opponent Silas R. Stone. The third aspirant, Kenneth Creech was eliminated in the first
primary balloting. In the Commissioner races, R. H. (Bob) Ellzey was high man in Group
One with incumbent Clifford (Windy) Tharpe in second place. W. D. (Tiny) Jones was elim-
inated in the first ballot. Incumbent Commissioner Watson Smith retained his seat in Group
Two with a win over Gordon Hallmark.


Trickling returns that came from
the counting room up until 2:00 a.
m. in the early morning kept. the
crowd in attendance on their toes
and wide awake as the count was
close and tense. The closeness was
both from the narrow majority
that candidates Sharit and Ellzey
held for most of the evening for a
first primary victory. The tension
for the last hour of the counting
came from the mounting number
of voLes being polled for Silas R.
Stone and Gordon Hallmark.
All three high candidates weri
winning handily up until the final
minutes of the count. The only race
that was anything near to being
close was the Gordon Hallmark,
Watson Smith race which never saw
Smith in any real threat of defeat
until the last hours, but Hallmark
was never too far behind.
After only a few of the votes had
been counted Sharit had a lead of
108 votes to 78 for Stone and seven
for Creech. If this trend had fol-
lowed Sharit would have repeated
for a second term in the first
primary.
.'. this same point, Ellzey had
102 against 83 for Clifford Tharpe
and 12 for W. D. Jones.
Watson Smith had a lead of 123
to 93 for Gordon Hallmark.
At the midway point, Sharit had
290 votes to 258 for Stone and 71
for Creech. At this point, Sharit
began .to fall behind in his com-
manding lead as both Creech and
Stone began to pick up votes. Ell-
zey at this point had 272 votes to
99 for Jones and 210 for Tharpe.
Smith had a 102 vote lead over Hall-
mark at the halfway point.
As 2:00 a.m. rolled around and
the tension was mounting in the
crowd, the polling ended with in-
cumbent Mayor-Commissioner Sha-
rit having only a one vote lea
over his nearest opponent, Silas
R. Stone. Sharit had 493 votes;
Stone 492 votes and Creech, 136.
Ellzey had polled 495 votes to lead
in Group One. Incumbent Clifford
Tharpe was second with 373 and
W. D. Jones trailed with 174. In
Commission Group Three, incum-
bent Watson Smith had polled 572
votes to 508 for Gordon Hallmark.
The gas tax measure fell to the
wayside with a resounding thump
with a vote of 680 to 253 to repeal
the tax.
Second Primary Tuesday
The second primary election will
be held next Tuesday, September
17 at the Fire Station to narrow
the field down to the winners in
.the Mayor-Commissioner race and
the Group One Commissioner race.
In the Mayor's race are incumbent
J. L. Sharit and Silas R. Stone. In
the Commission race will be incum-
bent Clifford Tharpe and R. H.
(Bob) Ellzey.
Voting time will again be be-
tween 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Meet Apalachicola

Next Friday Night

The St. Joe Sharks have enter-
ed into their second week of rough
work in preparation for their open-
ing game with Apalachicola o0
September 20. The team spirit and
morale that prevailed in the pre-
school drills has carried over into
the rough practice sessions.
The first intra-squad game of the
season was held last Friday after-
noon. It was a controlled game due
to the wet condition of the field.
The squad was divided inmo a white
team and a blue team. The person-
nel.was chosen on an equitable ba-
sis. A team was allowed to have
the ball for eight downs from the
fifty-yard line. If the offensive team
did not score, the defensive team
was given control of the ball for
eight downs.
As is to be expected in early sea-
son scrimmage, the blocking and
timing was not good. However,
some good football was played.
Only one touchdown was scored
in the game as long as the person-
nel was evenly divided. This came
as a result of white team quarter-
back Jackie Mitchell surprising the
blue defense with a quick pass to
Terry Hinote who made a deter-
mined run for 'the score. Wayne
Taylor added the extra point.
The players who are being con-
sidered for starting berths were
placed on the white team opposing


will have to display some good foot-
ball to keep Richard Zipperer from
starting at left halfback.
Fred Griffin and Ed Bobbitt were
injured slightly, but are expected
to play against Apalachicola.
The recent rains have hampered
the Sharks preparations. They have
been in the gymnasium for several
workouts.
Defense will be stressed next
week as the locals taper off the
rough work. The Sharks realize
that the Apalachicola team will be
at its best against them and are
anticipating a rough, tough game.

Teenage Decency

(Jacksonville Journal)
At a time when the lunatic fringe of teenagers is claiming
a lot of attention, comes a reminder that the majority of the
,nation's youngsters are decent, law-abiding citizens.
Parents' Magazine is announcing the 121 winners of its
annual Youth Group Achievement Awards. They will get gold
and silver plaques and certificates of honor for their contributions
to community life.
In Leland Mich., a Boy Scout troop hauled 66 tons of
rock to build a fish spawning area and planted 453,900 trees to
eliminate soil erosion, designed Marten houses for insect control
which have become a pattern approved by the U.S. Department
of Conservation.
In Westwood, N. ., the already overcrowded high school
had to give space to five elementary classes. Twenty high school
coeds gave up lunch hours to supervise the little ones and give
their teachers a needed break.
In New Haven, N. Y., there was no library. Thirteen
Girl Scouts collected, catalogued and stamped more than 2,000
books, arranged for use of the of the local Grange Hall, made
bookshelves and other furnishings, got a retired librarian to train
them and are now manning the library themselves.
In Prescott, .Ariz., 63 youngsters volunteered to operate
the community swimming pool, then raised money -to provide a
much-needed clubhouse for teens by selling Youth Bonds.
In California the Art Club of Chula Vista High School
decided to show the importance of art in community life by putt-
ing on the community's first all-school student art exhibition.
Ten-year-olds in Brooklyn have "adopted" as grandparents
the lonely inmates of an old people's home a group in Georgia
nas organized the first Scout Troop for blind children, the area
razed in the disastrous forest fire in Malibu, Calif., was reseeded
by the Youth Fellowship of the La Mesa Community Congrega-
tional Church in Santa Barbara.
There are thousands of such groups in this country and
millions of teenagers similarly engaged in useful work. The con-
tributions of these youngsters should not be obscured by the
notoriety that a small anti-social percentage of our juvenile popu-
lation enjoys.

are doing everything possible to
get this project under way. They
have met four times and each time

Members of this board are H.

First, the water board adopted
the fishing permit for which the
sportsman pays $1.25 to fish on
the Lake. To date 2.250 permits
have been sold in Gulf county &

Florida Has 4500
Managed Lakes
Florida now has approximately
4,500 managed fresh water lakes un-
der soil conservation programs.
These lakes vary in size from
small ponds up to 200 acres in area.
They are either artificial or improv-
ed, natural ponds which are stocked
with fish,'fertilized and kept cleared
of undesirable plants and fish. Man-
aged properly, they will produce
from 150 to 400 pounds of pan-sized
fish per acre annually, the Florida
State Chamber of Commerce re-
ported yesterday.
The artificial, or constructed,
lakes numbered 2,387 as of July 1
of this year compared with a 587
figure in December of 1951. The
improved natural lakes in the or-
ganized soil conservation districts
total 2,560 now as against 625 in
1951. Although there is some over-
lapping in these two totals, the
round figure of 4,500 fairly repre-
sents the extents to which the pro-
gram has contributed to form bet-'
torment, water control and recre-
ation.
Principal location of the lakes
