tel St. Joe last Saturday at noon
to take up the subject of planning
for the Northwest Florida band

here on March 28 andi 29.
Approximately 30 members and
special guests attended the meet-

ly 1500 people into town to be

IBradford appointed local band-
master Herman Dean, as festival

named two committee chairmen at
the Saturday meeting. He appoint-
ed Mrs. Paul Fensom to head a
committee to obtain housing for
the bands and Henry Chason to
head up a committee to see that
the visitors are fed.
These two committees are func-
tioning already. Anyone who can

on the dates of the festival are ur-
ged to contact Mrs. Fensom or Mr.
Dean as soon as possible. Dean
stresses the fact that the entire
population of Port St. Joe will need
to cooperate in this undertaking,
but he feels confident that local
citizens will rally to the challenge.

City Rejects Bid On Bond
Issue For Hosdital Addition
Sikes Blasts NAACP
In Address Here Thurs.
Congressman Bob Sikes lambast-
ed the NAAOP and gave his "seg-
regation talk" before approximate-
ly 90 mem bers of the Rotary, Ki-
wanis and Lions clubs and their
guests here last Thursday at noon.
The combined meeting was held
in the social room of the Methodist
Sikes didn't devote his entire
address to segregation, however.
He began by giving a small bulle-
tin on the proposed work at Cap,
San Blas where a missile tracking
station is to be constructed as an-
nounced two weeks ago in The
Star. He said that with increased
emphasis on missiles, the San Blas
facility would gain in prominence.
As for Sputnik, Sikes again be-
moaned the fact that the U. S.
was "dragging its heels" in this
program. He offered the opinion
that Sputnik didn't mean war since
this type of warfare would mein
the annhiliation of the human race.
He did stress that the U. S. must
catch up to Russia on missile work.
Then along the segregation lines,
Sikes declared that the state of
,thinking over the U. S. could ruin
the nation. He said htis was brought
about by the Supreme Court "step-
ping out of bounds" to put another
curb on our freedom. Sikes declared
that the nation should be allowed
to vote on whether or not it de-
sired to become integrated and
not have such a move forced upon

Judge B. B. Conklin gave the
Kiwanis Club an insight on the
workings of the .Small Claims
Court at their regular meeting Tues-
day at noon.
(Io'nklin gave a few pertinent
facts about the Court, which was
established in Florida in 1951. The
local Court was formed in 1955 by
a special act of the Legislature.
Conklin was appointed Judge of
the local Court at this time. His
position will come up for election
in the 1958 general elections.
Conklin said that the Court was
operated on an informal basis vith

also asked for 6% interest on the
unpaid balance each year.
The Commission discussed the
bid at some length and finally vot-
ed to reject the bid as bearing an
interest rate that was too high and
since the Commission desired more
than one offer on the money.
The City will begin this week to
take the necessary legal steps to

and a lower interest rate. The date

Scouts Will Get Rebate
On Jamboree Expense
All Scouts and Explorers who at-
tended the Boy Scout National
Jamboree at Valley Forge, Pa., last
summer are receiving an early
Christmas present in the form of
a substantial refund on the fee
they paid for the big Scouting ac-
tivity which Involved 50,000 boys
and lead: .. -
According to Scout Executive Joe
L. Ballenger, the refund was made
possible by very careful operation
and administration on the part of
the National Council which spcn-
sored the Jamboree and the Gulf
Coast Council which had 74 boys
and eight adult leaders attending.
Ballenger stated the refund per
boy amounted to $42.11 from the
total Jamboree fee of $150.00.
The refund checks are being
sent to the Scoutmasters of the
Troops that sent boys to the Jam-
boree and they, in turn, will dis-
tribute the refunds to individuals
Ballenger expressed appreciation
to leaders and all others who help-
ed to make the Jamboree the
most outstanding Scouting event
of the year.
Dr. Arthur A. .Schuck, Chief
Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts
of America, indicated in a letter
to Ballenger, part of the National
Council refund was made possible
by the cooperation of many large
food distributors that made spec-
ial concessions on providing tons
of food for the 10-day outdoor camp-
ing experience where over 1,500,000
individual meals were prepared
and served by boys.
