Week Long; Now
Last Friday night, the Port St.
Joe Sharks ran roughshod over a
hapless Sneads quintet to defeat

affair with .the Sharks being able
to relax and coast along to another

Victory number 12 for Port 'St.
Joe came on the wins of a 53-43 vic-
tory over Vernon, .the Florida State
B Champions Saturday night on the
Sharks' home grounds.
The win was a sweet one for the
Sharks, who suffered elimination
at the hands of the Yellow Jack-
ets last year in the semi-finals of
the state tourney.
The Sharks took the lead in the
first quarter behind Jackie Mitchell
with eight points and were never
behind for the entire game.
Vernon began to gain in the
third period when they outscored
the Sharks 10-8, but big Terry Hi-
note sank eight o; his 19 points
in the final quarter to increase the
margin to the 10 point lead.
Hinote's total was the best for
the Sharks, with Wayne Taylor
helping with 16 and Mitchell with
10. Wayne Taylor was injured in
the game when his feet were clip-
ped out from under him on a jump
shot. His status for the tournament
this week end was not known at

enough for the Sharks 77-44 victory
over their traditional rivals.
Playing with the services of All-
State Center Wayne Taylor, didn't
seem to bother the Sharks, who
posted their 13th win against'two
losses. Hinote was switched into
the pivot spot a'nd tallied 13 times
from the field and five more with
David Musselwhite -sprouted de-
fensive wings and sucked in 26 re-

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
The City Commission at the Regular Meeting held at 8:00
O'Clock P.M. Tuesday, February 4, 1958, did in unanimous accord
directly and urgently direct the Chief of Police and his Depart-
ment to fully enforce traffic rules' and regulations on all people
operating motor vehicles in .the City Limits of Port St. Joe.
The Commission particularly directed that the Police De-
partment give special and undivided attention to teen-age drivers
in the City Limits. The police will apprehend teen-age drivers
who are caught violating traffic laws, and also underage drivers,
remove the driver from the vehicle and take him or her home to
their parents. This procedure will be fully followed regardless of
who, when, or where traffic laws are violated in the Port St. Joe
Also very close and constant attention will be given to
all persons regardless of age, who violate speed and traffic laws,
such as excessive speed in the city limits area and failure to
heed and obey all stop signs.
Recently the City was presented a plaque by the Depart-
ment of Public Safety in Tallahassee, as an honor to the City for
no traffic deaths in the city limits of Port St. Joe for the year
1956. Don't you think that such a plaque would be a very com-
mendable honor to be bestowed upon this City for each future

According to Keibler. the local
plant was an experiment of a new
process in refining tall oil and ob-
taining different products from this
ingredient. The tall oil is the plants
raw material. Keibler said that the
plant expected difficulties in be-
ginning operations since their me-
thods had not been tried. He report-
ed that the Glidden plant here start-
ed operating 187 times before they
began continuous production. After
each start the plant would run from
two to 24 hours before it had to
shut down to work out bugs. He re-
ports that the plant is now operat-
ing successfully and true to their
expectations is turning out a super-

rosin and tall oil fatty acids. He

Tuesday morning at 4:30 a.m
the department was called out in
22 degree weather. The cold wea

line running beside Aubrey Tom
linson's Gulf Service Station to
shrink and break. The high line
made a danger of fire at the service
station and the department stood
by until power company crews
could cut power off of the line.
Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m
the department was called to Ave
nue D in the colored section o
town where debris piled behind an
oil heater had ignited slightly dam
aging a house.
The desire of a sizeable number
of St. Joe citizens that Precinct
No. 8 be split had grown by Thurs-
day, when some 100 citizens were
on hand to petition the Board to
make the desired change.
The avowed purpose of these
voters in requesting that Precinct
'No. 8 be split is to separate the
Negro voter from the white. Their
claim is that there is now enough
Negro voters in Port St. Joe to
justify having a precinct of their
own. This was the feeling and the
argument of the citizens present.
The County Commisisoners heard
what those present had to say
then Comm. Harden made a mo-
tion that a Board decision be post-
poned at least until the next regu-
lar meeting, inasmuch as time was
no factor, and since one of the
Commissioners was absent. The mo-
tion finally passed 3-1, with Com-
missioner A. X. Strickland voting
against the motion. He reported
that lie waj.ib. farpr of the split
and wished ,to vote on it at the
meeting Thursday. The next regu-
lar meeting of the Commission will
be Tuesday of next week.

get-together leading up to the above

St. Joe-ites and Friends:
'While you're reading this I'll be
giving my '53 Plymouth the gun
towards Maryland and thinking of
the many smiles and cheering words
heard from you while in good old
St. Joe. It was really good for the
soul to see you and I was simply
amazed to hear so many say: "'I
read your column n The Star." You
have given me courage and a great-
er desire to make it worth your
while. Even had a telephone call
from White City. (Thank you, Mrs.
Hazel Stafford). You can keep your
eye on that prosperous, thriving
community and it's pleasing to see
a rapid development brought about
by sincere, industrous, forward
looking folks living three. More
power to you, White City. keep
up the good work.
About the time I was getting well
acquainted and comfortably settled
at home my wife took off for At-
lanta (just ain't no justice) to at-
tend a ready-to-wear show. Well,
you gotta have goods if you expect
to do business, and she goes after
it! like a duck to water. You

Of one who once sat there,
He was just a plain person
With his smile each day
Always tried to do for others
As he journeyed on his way.
You will never know his value
Til you see his vacant chair.

There stepping stones. Speaking of
Stones reminds me of something
worthy of mention. That gentle la-
dy, Mrs. Hig Stone came by the
store last week and we passed the
time of day about health and etc.
I asked about Uncle Hig and she
remarked he was perky and .hip-
per and that he had recently
told her hq was "a good mind to
hustle him up a building and go in
business" (understand he is push-
ing 90) More power to you, Uncle
Hig but please, won't you wait
until I get back here? My wife and
Guy says competition is plenty
tough as it is and you'll just make
it still tougher. I must say this is
the brand of courage and spirit that
built St. Joe It'll build any-
where! Three cheers for T. H.

gether with :Dr. Paul T. Erickson,

The meeting came to order at
6 o'clock P.M.
The Chairman announced that
this meeting is called for the pur-
pose of discussing the possibility of
dividing some of *the voting pre-
cincts in the County and then wel-
comed the visitors to the meeting
and asked anyone present to come
forward and be heard if they were
interested in making any changes
in 'the precincts.
There were fourteen visitors pres-
ent and the following people ap-
peared before th eBoard, all voicing
their opinion that they thought pre-
cinct No. 8 should be divided in r-
der to give relief to the voters in
said precinct; that they thought the
colored and white voters in said
precinct ought to be given separate
precincts because there are enough
colored voters to warrant a pre-
cinct in the colored area of Port
St. Joe, to-wit: Ben Williams, Mer-
rill Sherrill, L. E. Voss, Walter
Graham and Ted Beard.
The Attorney advised the Board
that it can only act on this matter
upon a recommendation of the Su-
pervisor of Registration. Comm.
Harden stated that he wanted to
see some relief given the voters in
the large precincts, but that this
year's budget was set up for only
10 precincts, which would mean
the County would run into some
financial problem's. Mr. Williams in-
formed the Board that THEY would
get u'p the -extra money needed to
divide precinct No. 8.
After lengthy discussion, there
was a motion by Comm. Price sec-

Group Seeks To Split

comment from the floor and Silas
R. Stone, local attorney, spoke, up
saying that it didn't matter hov
many people were here from where.
He said the request was a matter
in which, he felt, all 'the county was
interested and sympathetic.
When it was pointed out that
the Board might be accused of bias
if it divided Precinct No. Eight, as
requested Mrs. John Dickey said
that Nine needed relief, too, and
that a partitioning of that precinct
ciuld be aligned with the white part
of Precinct No. Eight.
J. A. Garrett rose to say he
thought the colored people wanted
their own box, that they wanted to
be by themselves and that to split
the precinct as requested would not
be doing them a dis-service or an
-Ben Williams thought that if the
precinct was not split as recom-
mended, a tragic accident could
occur. He wished to avoid the pos-
sibility of bloodshed by splitting
the precinct now. He asked Mrs.
Rish to make her recommendation
to the County Board and then what-
ever decision they made would rest
squarely on their shoulders.
After the St. Joe delegation had
shown that they were unanimously
in favor of ithe split, Mrs. Rish
recommended to the Board that the
precinct be split. "What else can
I do but recommend it?" she asked.
At this point a recess was called
while the St. Joe people caucused
to modify 'the proposed boundaries
of the proposed precincts. When
they returned and the meeting was
called to order, Croxton asked Mrs.
Rish (for the record) if she had
a recommendation to make. She
remade her recommendation, at
which time Harden made his de-
Here again vigorous discussion
from the floor ensued. Led by Ben
Williams, Ted Beard and Fred Mad
dox, the crowd objected to any
delay in making a Board decision
They felt the Board should make
a decision then and now. The de
tails could be worked out later, was
the consensus. "What we want now
from the Board is a flat yes or no,
Here Comm. J. C. Price seconded
Harden's motion, and was reward
ed with a wave of resentment from
When Chairman Croxton put" th(
motion to a vote, Harden and
Price voted yea. Comm. Strickland

voted nay and was roundly applaud-
ed by the crowd. Croxton voted yea
to make the majority of the board.
He, along with Harden and Price,
felt that since there was no hurry
the Board ought to investigate ev-
ery possible avenue before making
a decision. "Let's not be stampeded
into this thing," were Croxton's
words and the opinion of a major-
ity of the Board.
The decision was unpopular with
the crowd, which applauded Strick-
land for his stand.
