"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
by WL*-LEY R. RAMSEY
Much has been said about Mr.
Dickenson and his system in de-
termining the champions of the
Northwest Florida Football Con-
We suspect that many do not
know just how it works.
Reprinted below, is the entire
scoring apparatus. Upon studying
it you will find that the Sharks
now have 125 points and even with
a win over Marianna on Thanks-
giving day, the Quincy Tigers can-
not hope for more than 105 points.
According to the said Mr. Dick-
enson, this gives the Sharks a 20
point edge and the Championship.
1. First division includes all
teams that have won more games
than they have lost during the sea-
son. All other teams are.in the sec-
2. For each victory of a first divi-
sion team over a first division team,
the winner gets thirty points and
the loser fifteen points.
3. For each tie between two first
division teams, each team gets
twenty-two and a half points.
4. For each victory of a first di-
vision team over a second division
team, the first division winner ge:.a
twenty-points and the second divi-
sion loser ten points.
5. For each victory of a second
division team over a first division
team, the winner gets tihrty points
and loser ten points.
6 For each victory of a second
division team over a second divi-
sion team, the winner gets twenty
points and loser ten points
7. For each tie between two sec-
ord division teams, each gets fit-
8. For each tie between a first
division team and a second division
team, the first division team gets
fifteen points and the second divi.
sion team gets twenty points.
1. No team shall be penalized for
a victory in an extra gam3. To
avoid that, the extra game shall be
omitted from the calculations.
(Twenty points for an extra victory
penalizes a tiam with an average
of more than i-e.Ly points for its
other games.) HoweVer, the number
of victories must never be thus re
duced until -they are fewer than
the number of defeats or ties.
2. If two second division teams
have won the same number of vic-
tories over first or 'second division
teams but have lost a different num-
ber to first division teams, the ex-
tra defeats by the first division
teams shall be omitted from the
calculations. (This effects only the
teams in the lower bracket.
1. An undefeated team shall al-
ways be ranked above every team
it has defeated, even though the
average number of "points" is the
season's rating may indicate other-
2. A team with a percentage of
.500 is in the second division; it
will be considered in the first di-
vision if one-third of its games have
been against first division oppo-
nents and have resulted in at least
one victory and one tie. A team that
has no first division victories and
has lost to at least two second di-
vision teams shall be placed in the
second division even if its percent-
age is above .500. (These excep-
tions to rule 1 of Section A must
be interpreted caerfully.) A team
that has won over all its second
-division opponents and won at
least two first division victroieso
shall be placed in the first division
regardless of percentage.
3. If, in a game having a bearing
(n the championship, a first div'-
.'on team should profit by tieinug
another team in the first division
when defeated then would lower
the defeated team into the second
division, the points awarded shall
not be greater, than for a victory.
(A tie between first division teams
gives each twenty-two and a half
points whereas defeating a second
division team nets only twenty
points.) Each of these rare cases
must be considered separately. Con-
ferences have different rules on
this point. It is sometimes neces-
sary to allow twenty points for such
a tie game in order to avoid any
"encouragement" to be 'tied rather
than to win.
'1. If the foregoing directions
have been correctly followed, the
final standings may be calculated
by getting the average number of
"points". (Add the points for each
game included and divide by the
number of games used in getting
this total.) The team with the high-
est average is ranked first (except
under 'Rule 1 of Section C.) The
following rules apply when two or
more teams have the same average
"points" for the season:
(a) If two teams have the same
average "points" for the entire
season, the victor in the game play.
ed between them during the season
shall be ranked above the loser. Ob-
viously, if they have not met dur-
ing the season, they remain lik.d in
the final ranking.
(b) If three teams ha--' the .anme
average "points" for the entire sea-
son, and two of them have met
during the season, the loser shall be
ranked third and the other two
tied for the higher rank.

T'S a story we all know and love-the first
Pilgrim Thanksgiving. The excite-
ment in their little homes must have been
pretty much as it is today-the tantalizing
smells of roast turkey and pumpkin pie-
the bustle and rush of eager children-it
must have been a wonderful day!
But before the Pilgrims sat down to their
feast they observed the true meaning of
Thanksgiving. They all gathered together
in their meetinghouse to give thanks for
the good they had received, for survival
through a lobn year of hardship, and to
pray f6r thi strength anid courage to Keep
their faith in this strange, new land.
This Thanksgiving, why not take your
family to your house of worship. A quiet
hour of prayer and thanks will make your,
holiday so much more meaningful.
Wherever you are ... whatever your be-
liefs may be ... take time to offer your
words of thanks ... just as the Pilgrims did
more than 300 years ago.

WORSHIP TOGETHER THIS WEEK
At Port Theatre
The Gulf County Unit of the
American Cancer Society will in-
troduce a unique health program
to the women of the Port St. Joe
area on December 5 by showing
two films, "Time and Two Women"
and "Breast Self-Examination".
These- films will be shown at the
Port Theatre December 5, at 10
a.m. "Time and Two Women" deals
with a most intimate and serious
subject with clarity and good
taste. Its purpose is to explain
how cancer of the uterus may even-
tually be eliminated as a cause of
death. Its theme is that time may
be a woman's ally or enemy, and
that the choice is, in large part,
up to the woman herself. This is
an important medical story told
through the experiences of two
women, each faced with cancer.
"Time and Two Women" stresses
the importance of an examination
as a part of the annual health
checkup for women over 21, and
urges that it include the "cell ex-
amination for uterine cancer".
The other film, "Breast Self-Ex-
amination" was first shown in 1950
and has been viewed by over 5,-
000,000 women, helping thousands
to detect breast cancer in an early

Hints For Christmas Mailing
Hundreds of thousands of Christmas cards and packages will be
lost this year because of illegibly written addresses. Servicemen
overseas, relatives, friends, business associates-all will be part of

A Christmas Gift for You and Your Family
As we make joyous preparations for the Christmas season,
one important phase of this celebration should not be forgotten.
We mean the annual Christmas Seal sale, which this year com-
pletes half a century of effort to fight tuberculosis through volun-
During these years great strides have been made toward
lowering the TB death rate. But the fact remains that TB is still
a health problem. There are those in Gulf county this very day
who have tuberculosis and don't know it,
For their sake and for the protection of all of us it is im-
portant that the unknown cases be found and put under treatment.
Christmas Seal funds help locate undetected cases of TB and in
addition money contributed in the seal drive is used to help pa-
tients and their families and to aid in checking the spread of the
nation's number one infectious killer. Toward that end last year
22,000 Gulf county residents received TB services.
You are buying a Christmas present for yourself, your fam-
ily and your neighbors when you buy Christmas Seals. Use
them on your holiday mail and packages.
"Time For A Change" At Last
The big news in President Eisenhower's Oklahoma City
speech during which he drew more applause than he has for a
long, long time lies in his public recognition of some neglected
As in his first speech on "Science and National Security",
the President was very frank in saying that higher defense spend-
ing will be required to meet the Soviet threat. But in the week
that intervened between the two speeches he had apparently not
only brushed up on his subject but had also been briefed on
the attitude and temper of the people, from coast to coast and
border to border.
Referring to basic research, in which he has been urging
drastic expansion, Mr. Eisenhower said: "Here again money can-
not do everything. You cannot say to a research worker, 'Your
salary is tripled; now produce three times as many basic discover-
In warning that new costs must be added to current se-
curity expenditures with no prospect that the latter can be fur-
ther reduced, he said: "Consequently, the first thing is to search
for other places to cut expenditures."
And again: "In the Federal Government's civilian activities,
we shall have to make some tough choices. Some programs,
while desirable, are not absolutely essential. In this I have reach-
ed a clear conclusion. While some savings may still be squeezed
out through the wringer method, savings of the kind we need
can come about only through cutting out or deferring entire cate-
gories of activity." i 1 a' |' ^
"This will be one of the hardest and most distasteful tasks
that the coming session of Congress must face."
We do not recall that we have heard this kind of talk from
General Eisenhower since 1952 when he was campaigning under
the "time for a change" banner.
No American is setting his face against adequate defense.
But few Americans are convinced that overall national expendi-
tures must be increased to attain that security. It would now
seem to be up to the Congress under the leadership of the
President to light into their "distasteful" job and cut away the
Federal boondoggling and the superfluous bureaus and activities
- notably our global do-gooding. o

SING THOSE WORDS Con-
gresman Billy Matthews has won
half of his battle with the radio
and television networks over the
censorship of Stephen Foster's
classic songs. The fight started in
August when Matthews complained
that the networks were changing
teh original words of Foster's
songs. For example, Matthews
pointed out that the word "dark-
ies" had been change dto "fellows"
and "Old Black Joe" had now be-
come "Old Pal Joe". Matthews in-
troduced a .resolution calling for
an investigation of why they were
doing it and who had put pressure
on them to make the changes. He
also introduced a bill calling for

approval of Congress before any
other changes could 'be made. Last
week the networks announced that
they would go along with Matthews
as far as "official state songs"
were concerned. This would include
"Old Folks at Home," state song
of Florida and "My Old Kentucky
Home," state song of Kentucky.
Matthews says he is happy that the
networks have given in this much
and insists that he'll keep up the
fight to restore the original words
to all American folk songs.
TOO HUSH-HUSH? Scheduled
to be in Washington this week was
Congressman Dante Fascell for
hearings by the Government Infor-
mation ,Subcommittee. Big ques-
tion before the committee was: why
did the Defense Department issue
their no famous, "Thou shalt not
speak" orders to the military im-
mediately after the .Soviet Sputnik
took to oute space? On the pan
wwere top Defense officials. For
two years the Committee has ask-
ed questions of all government de-
partments about their restrictions
on public information. The Defense
Department has been the hardest
place to wangle news. Fascell's
Committee hopes to make its final
recommendations to cure the prob-
lem by January first.
