"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-FIRST YEAR -'ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1958 SINGLE COPY 8B NUMBER 14
by WE&L.EY R. RAMSEY
Did Santa Claus treat you right.
for Christmas are you feeling
on top of the world after New
Year's or does it feel like the world
is on top of you?
Santa treated us right nice for
Christmas. Everything we got, we
There were two shirts under the
tree, and we had just thrown away
three the week before. Two pair
of socks and a couple of handker-
chiefs adorned two of the packages.
The handkerchiefs we will use and
the socks were promptly put away
to save for the next time we buy
a new pair of shoes. It's embarras-
ing to buy shoes with holes in the
toes of your socks. Since we forgot
the wife's birthday on December 14,1
Santa had left us a desk calendar
to remember the days with and
several other little knick-nacks.
One of the most handy gadgets
we received was a pair of pajamas
-with monkeys on them.
The little woman had wanted a
gown. But not knowing her gown
size, we hesitated to buy her one.
This pair of pajamas solved the
problem however. All we ever use
is the bottoms of the pj's so we just
put the top back in a box and han-
ded it over the little woman-wish-
ed her a Merry Christmas and said
"here's you a new gown". Now,
But those kids of mine. All kinds
of toys from uncles, aunts, grand-
parents-and parents. But what
was the most sought after toy? A
little cardboard cylindrical box that
acted like a pump, equipped with
15 balloons. You pumped the box
and blew up the balloons. Prob-
ably cost all of 50c, but it was the
"star" of Christmas morning.
We gathered a little pre-New
Year's news from George Wimberly,
Jr., Tuesday. He said two slightly
"tanked" celebrants of the passing
of the old year drove into his auto
repair shop in a convertible Tues-
day morning and said, "Shay, doe,
this thing won' do bu' 115-and
shesh suppos' to do 1'30. How bou'
tunnin' er up (hic) !"
And still Gulf County had no
deaths from traffic accidents over
the New Year holiday. These two
must have left the county.
We heard a joke (a new one) on
Gus Creech the other day, but we
won't tell it here. Some fellow from
Perry, Florida was telling it in a
We are carrying a little article
this week on the ending of the
hunting season. This article was
sent out by the Game and Fresh
Water-Fish Commission of Florida.
Down at the bottom of the article
is some very interesting informa-
tion. Among other things you may
continue to hunt are, sparrows,
starlings, black and turkey vul-
tures even after the regular hunt-
ing season. You may hunt skunks
also. Maybe this 'assortment. of
game will stave off starvation.

It was announced this week that
work on the St. Joe Boat Club's
new boat basin was nearly half

boat basin goes.
The club has prevailed upon the
contractors building the new ware-
house for the Container Division
of the St. Joe Paper Company to
get their fill dirt out of the basin.
-Draglines were put to work dig-
ging the basin and providing fill

level the contractors started to quit
the hole as inaccessible for more

Had Highest Fatality
Rate In Nation In '55
For the first time in many years, Gulf County has gone
for an entire year with no fatal traffic accidents, according to
Highway Patrolman Travis Aplin. Aplin was kept on pins and
needles for the last few weeks of the year with the dangerous
Christmas and New Year holidays looming as a threat to Gulf
County's perfect record. According to Aplin, the entire season
saw no undue traffic hazards from hazardous highways or unsafe
driving. According to Aplin, Gulf had lots of room for improve-
ment over their traffic fatality records of past years.
Moose Club Gives
Food To Needy Families
Moose Lodge, No. 1035 of Port
St. Joe carried out their annual
project of -distributing .baskets of
food to the needy families on Christ-
mas eve to families in Port St. Joe
and surrounding area.
This organization has undertaken
this program each year since it was
founded here. It is felt that this is
one of their most important local
functions by the Moose members.
The Moose Lodge wishes to-thank
the Port St. Joe High School, the
local merchants- and the Kiwanis
Club for their participation in this
Addison Revues Work
For Kiwanis Year
Rex Addison, outgoing president
of the Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club,
reviewed some of their work during
the year at the Kiwanfis' Tuesday
Foremost among the Kiwanis
achievements was their work with
the children of the community. Ad-
dison. reported that the Club had
expended some $350.00 in carrying
on ,their work with children, pre-
senting kids day, buying glasses
for underpriviledged children, Lit-
tle League Baseball and many other
Another of their major activities
was the completion of an additional
section 'of bleachers at the football
field. Addison reported that the
club had been reimbursed for part
of their expenditure through the
sale of reserved seats, but that the
project still cost the club nearly
Addison cited the club's work
with the Key Club, a youth organi-
zation at the High School, sponsor-
ed .by the club. During the year the
Club had sent delegates to the Dis-
trict Key Club Convention and the
State Convention in Miami Beach.
One of the jobs the Kiwanis
Club was most proud of was the
providing of a church bell for a
missionary church in the Belgian
Congo. The club had sent the bell
last summer and president Addison
reported that the bell had been re-
ceived by the mission and was in-
stalled and in use.
The Kiwanis Club ended their
1957 year of operation Tuesday and
will begin a new year next Tues-
Sharks Will Resume
Cage Schedule Tuesday
The Port St. Joe Sharks will re-
sume their cage schedule next
Tuesday, January 7 when they tra-
vel to Quincy to play the Tigers.
After the Sharks football defeat of
the Tigers, they will probably be
on the court with all the stops un-
pulled to try to gobble up the
Sharks. Of course, Coach Marion
Craig's quintet is always to be
reckoned with, but even the stron-
gest of teams.
Friday, January 10, the Sharks
will journey to Sneads to meet
this team for the first time. Sneads
usually has a good basketball team
and it will bo interesting ot see
the outcome of this meeting.
Gulf County set this record right
on the heels of having the worst
traffic fatality record for miles tra-
veled in the entire United States
in 1955. During 195,6, the traffic fa-
tality, didn't reach any national re-
cords but was well up among the
highest in the S'tate of Florida.
Gulf County gained some unfav-
orable publicity both State and na-
tion-wide in 1955 when 14 people
were killed on ,the highways in the
county. To get the national leader-
ship in highway deaths, the deaths
were compared on a miles traveled
basis. Gulf County, with a compara-
tively small road mileage and the
large number of deaths climbed
to the top of the heap. .
Highway Patrolman Travis Ap-
lin, stationed here in Port St. Joe
reported that there were no critical
injuries from traffic accidents dur-
ing the past year. "As a matter of
fact", he said, "traffic accidents as
a whole were negligible in the
county" and that Gulf went several
months during 1957 without even
a skinned fender. Trooper Aplin
said that cuts and bruises were the
worse injuries suffered by drivers
during the entire year.
Aplin further stated that the en-
tire holiday week was free of acci-
dents, further setting records for
Gulf. In fact there have been no
accidents during a holiday season
during the entire year.
Highway fatalities throughout the
state also showed a decline over
last year. Through New Year's eve
1,044 had died on Florida high-
ways compared with 1,228 last year.
Highway Patrol Commander, H. N.
Kirkman said that Florida would
have a good year barring a sudden
upsurge of traffic deaths over the
New Year holidays.

TOO LATE TO
By RUSSELL KAY
When Jack Frost galloped thru
Florida recently blowing his frigid
breath in all directions he left a
trail of death and destruction to
tender plant life such as we sl-
dom experience in this usually balm
Colorful poinsettias, gorgeous
flame vine, oleanders, hibiscus and
bougainvillaea that the day before
had been greeting our winter visi-
tors joyously hung lifeless amid a
pitiful display of dead foliage.
Grass turned from green-to brown,
dead leaves fluttered to earth leav-
ing stark skeletons where thrilling
floral beauty had been before.
It was a sickening and tragic sit-
uation and I shuddered as' I risual-
ized the scene that confronted any
good friend Dick Pope of Cypress
Gardens. I knew he would do his
Ltmost to save the gardens but it
wrs too much to hope that he could
combat such a sustained;' attack.
I phoned to express my coodo-
lence and was amazed to hear his
cheery voice as he enthusiastically
urged me to come over and see his
gorgeous garden standing uns ;ata-
ej with flaming poinsettias lif ing
ti-eir thankful heads to greet tae
"Don't you know there will al-
ways be a Beautiful Cypress Gar-
dens?" Dick queried. Then he told
me the thrilling story of his battle
with the elements that terminated
in a complete rout for Jack Fr-'.-t
and left his precious gardens more
beautiful than ever with every leaf,
twig and bud untouched.
As soon as the first warning came
Dick went into action. 700 forded
draft oil heaters, made in Californ-
ia by the way, were fired up, each
heater connected by pipe line with
oil storage tanks capable of keep-
ing them in full operation for an
unlimited period. They are not
smudge pots but heaters that pour-
ed out a, wealth of warmth over the
entire 70 acres of gardens, holding
the temperature at 37 through the
entire period of the freeze.
Outside the gardens the tempera-
ture dropped to a drastic 27, out
on Lake Eloise running water on
the ski-jump froze and icicles a
foot long hung from the structure
while a fe hundred feet away all
was green and colorful. It was un-
Even more amazing was the re-
cord of attendance at Cypress Gar-
dens following gthe freeze. Dic ktells
me that on December 22, 400 more
visitors were recorded than on the
same date a year ago. One would
normally suppose that few persons
would pay to see a garden assumed
to be wipe out by cold, but tour-
ists continued to flock to the at-
traction in ever increasing num-
bers and thanks to Dick Pope and
his corps of loyal helpers, they were
not disappointed for they found the
gardens as "Beautiful" as always
with no sign of damage, a veritable
fairyland of riotous color.
A Hollywood film crew under the
direction of John Arnold of Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayre had scheduled a
take of the gardens to be made the
day after the cold. Like myself, Ar-
nold assumed that there wouldn't
be much to photograph and he too
was feeling mighty sorry for Dick,
but when he visited the place the
next day he not only got his pic-
tures with contrasts but they were
also so startling it was almost be-
The faith, courage and-hard work
of Dick Pope created the fabulous
attraction and the same faith, cour.
age and hard work preserved it in
all its glory through the years.

Back in the pioneer days of
American history mother soothed
baby's teething pains with clove
syrup and that carry-over to the
modern day, the teething ring.

One application' of the special
formula Ora-Jel relieves pain in
twenty seconds and has a long-
lasting effect. It's perfectly safe to
use as often as baby needs it and
it comes in a tube that makes it
easy to use and more economical.
Ora-Jel is excellent for relievi:.,;
adult toothaches, too, until you can

paste and aspirin it is becoming an
fear-round "must" among standard

Thursday, January 2, the taxes on
gasoline paid by Florida highway
users, just during the first two days
