Lesson On Art
Mrs., Lila Brouillette spoke to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday at their
regular meeting on art and color.
Mrs. Brouillette, who teaches art
in the local schools, gave an inter-
esting program and demonstrations
on the different types of art and
ponte illustrations on color and
;Mrs. Brouillette, who is a grad-
uate of the Chicago Art Institute,
showed the Kiwanians illustrations
of copper etching, which is the most
expensive kind of picture reproduc-
tion; lithography, a cheaper form
of reproduction and linoleum block
reproduction, which many people do
as a hobby.
Mrs. Brouillette told tihe Kiwan-
lanas that a well trained artist will
never lack a job or a means of
earning money. But she said that

Sharks Meet Walton High Friday
Night For Their First Home Game
Braves Reported To Have Strong
Team; Sharks Practice New Plays
Senator Spessard L. Holland, in, The Senator also called
a letter to the Director of the Bu-
reau of the Budget, Percival F.
,Brundage, today urged the inclu-
sion of funds in the President's 1959
budget for authorized construction
work on Port St. Joe Harbor. The
1954 River and Harbor Act author-
ized the widening and deepening
of the entrance channel; enlarging
the north bay channel to 35 by 300
feet; and dredging .the harbor chan-
nel in the turning basin 35 feet
deep and 200 feet wide. It is esti-
mated that this construction work
will cost $1,450,000.
In urging funds for this project,
Senator Holland called attention to
the large amount of water-borne
commerce handled in this port in
1955, and to the uneconomic opera-
tions required of the many T-2
tankers which use the port by the
present inadequate channel dimen-
sions, which restrict loading capa-
tion to the fact that the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee carefully
considered the project earlier this
,year and that its report on the
Public Works Appropriations Bill
for 1958 contained the following
statement: "The committee did not
include funds for Port St. Joe Har-
bor, but was Impressed with the
need for construction work on this
authorized project due to the rapid
growth of industry in that area and
recommends that the Corps of En-
gineers give careful consideration
to the inclusion of funds for this
project in its 1959 budget."
Senator Holland is a member of
the important Senate Appropria-
tions Committee and is also a mem-
ber of the Subcommittee which con-
siders the Public Works Appropria-
tions bills. Such membership places
him in an excellent position to press
for early appropriations for the
.Port St. Joe project.

Sharks Defeat Apalachicola In Season Opener
St. Joe Sharks opened up their
grid season last Friday night asf
they overcame every bad break in
the game to down the Apalachicola
The Sharks defense looked su-
perb as they held a host of Chap-
man speedsters to only 108 yards
all night. The Sharks ground game
was packed with power that saw
Shark star fullback Wayne Taylor
accounted for almost half of the
Sharks total yardage.
Chapman drew first blood in the
second quarter after a series of fumn-
bles that saw the ball change hands
three times in three plays. Chap-
ian managed to hold onto it the
last time but were forced to punt.
Richard Zipperer fumbled the punt
and Chapman recovered on the
Shark three where quarterback
Milam Bloodworth skirted left end
for Chapman's only score.
The Sharks fought back quick
in the third quarter as halfback
Frank Fletcher moved the ball 17
yards to the Chapman 33. Taylor
picked up five more yards to the
28 where quarterback Ed Smith
dashed through a gaping hole off
right tackle and scampered the 28
for a St. Joe tally. Taylor missed
the extra point try and the score
was all tied up 6-6. The Sharks
kicked of fand held Chapman to a
punting situation. Chapman punt-
ed and the Sharks Ross Hudson
picked up the ball on the Shark
eight, picked up a beautiful key
block from Charles Boyer and scam-
pered 92 yards for the Sharks final
TD. Taylor found the range with
the extra point and the Sharks
went ahead 13-6.

outstanding with Jackie Mitchell,

The Small Claims Court was the
subject used by Judge J. C. Suggs
of Panama City Thursday when he
spoke before the Rotary Club.
Suggs is the Small Claims Court
Judge in Bay County. He was pre-
sented to the club by honorary
Rotarian B. B. Conklin.
Suggs explained to the Rotarians
some of the means that the Small
Claims Court uses to collect ac-
counts. He anclared that if a per-
son owned anything at all he could
be made to pay a just bill sooner
or later. He explained the ways
and means that the Court uses to
gain immediate payment and if a
person refuses to pay he explained
some of the means that the Court
could use to tie up property and
force a person to pay.
Suggs declared that the Court
could usually collect an account il
most cases even though they had
to use round-about means at times.
"Of course", said Suggs, "the longer
a person refuses to pay up, the
more it costs him".
The Club took in one new mem-
ber, Max Kilbourn, at their meeting
Thursday. Kilbourn's category is

Service units through Friday if
they are unopened, according to
District Forester, Walter L. Childs.
Childs expects the total amount
of cones collected by both the Flj.-

Coach Lamar Faison and Coach
Harry Herrington scouted Walton
and report that they operate from
the "T" formation and a single
wing with an unbalanced line.
Their attack features the running
of Lavid Bludworth and Jerry
Langley, 185 pound fullback. Har-
old Donaldson, a clever quarter-
back, directs the team and does the
passing. The line is anchored by
Shelton Brown, a 210 pound tackle
and Tyrone Cosson, a 188 pound
The multiple offense employed
by Walton has complicated the
Sharks defensive preparations, but
the locals have worked hard on de-
fensive maneuvers to contain Blud-
worth and Langley.
The Sharks hope to be at full
strength physically for the Braves.
However, Billy Denton is still ham-
pered by a shoulder injury that
kept him out of the Apalachicola
game. Alex Gaillard missed prac-
tice Tuesday due to a pain in his
side. In the event that Denton and
