Band Gets 30

New Recruits

Bandmaster Herman Dean an-
nounces that the recruiting cam-
paign for new band students is now
in its second and final .week of op-
eration and the results are highly
favorable. Over 30 new students


What has been rumors and talk for the past month turned
into reality Tuesday when a delegation composed of M. P. Tom-
linson, James T. McNeill, Jr., and C. W. Long appeared before
the Gulf County Commission asking for an official list of tax
payers who -were registered to vote in Gulf County. The list was
for the purpose of preparing an accurate petition of one third of
these voting tax payers calling -an election to vote on moving the
County seat of Gulf County to Port St. Joe.


Evidently the movement has ad-
vanced beyond the "rumor" stage


'have already signed up for the since Tomlinson, who acted as
summer band school which will be- spokesman for the group, reported
gin at 9:00 a.m., Monday, J-une 16. that already over 400 signatures had
been affixed to the petitions.


Saturday, May 17 is Armed For-
ces Day.
In celebration of this day Tyn-
dall, Air Force Base is holding open
house at their big base between
Port St. Joe and Panama City.
In addtiion to their open house,
Colonel Dean Davenport, Tyndall
commander and Mayor J. L. Sharit
have collaborated to bring a fly-
over of 24 Air Force jets over Port
St. Joe.
The flyover is scheduled for May
17 at 11:23 a.m.
Colonel Davenport reports that
aircraft to be included in the fly-
over will be the supersonic F-102
Delta Dagger and the F-,104 Star-
fighter. The aircraft will fly over
at 1000 feet of altitude.


Tomlinson asked the County
Commission to have the county tax
collector and the county supervisor
of registration prepare a list of the
voters -and the tax payers. The list
was for the purpose of seeing who
was eligible to sign the petition.
Those Eligible
According to information given to
The Star, the petition, in order to
bear enough weight to call an elec'
tion to move the county seat must
have affixed to it at least one third
of the tax paying registered voters
in the County.
Provided the names can be se-
cured by the petitioners, they will
be presented to the County Com-
mission to call for an election to
decide whether or not the county
seat will be moved to Port St. Joe
or remain in Wewahitchka.
Anxious f"r Election
Tomlinson told the County Board
that they would like to have the
list requested within the next two
'weeks. Tomlinson said if they can
be secured at that time, the peti-
tions will be filled out and present-
ed to the County Commission at
their next meeting which will be
held on June 10. Tomlinson told
the Board that it was the petition-

validity. In the light of this Tom-
linson asked the County Board to
request the lists now and give them
a copy. "This is so that we will
know that we have the officially
accepted list" said Tomlinson, "as
we cannot afford to make mistakes


ever changing from day to day and
that the Board could ill afford to
label any list "official". except as
of the date on which it was com-
piled. He did advise the board that
they could legally supply Tomlin-
son and his group with the infor-
mation required, if they paid for
the service.
Commissioner Harden stated that
in light of the Attorney's statement
that :he thought the Commission's
list should be prepared as of the
day that such a petition was pre-
sented so as to have the official
list. He went on to say that he
would be in favor of supplying the
list and urge the county officers
in charge of the desired informa-
tion should be urged to get the
information at the earliest possible
date and that a charge should be
made for their services.
Commissioner Price asked that
the officers be -brought to the court
room to be charged by the Commis-
sion as to what was wanted by the
petitioners and Mrs, Q- G. Rish, su-
pervisor of registration was sum-
moned to the Commission cham-
bers. Tax Collector, Harland Prid-
geon apparently was not in the
court house since he didn't appear.
Tomlinson, who had held out for
the Commission to prepare the list
for themselves to assure an official
list of names agreed to the plan as
proposed by Harden, if a copy
would be sent to the Commission
for their approval and for their
declaration of the list as official as
of that day. Tomlinson agreed that
his group would pay for the infor-
mation.
Floyd Lister, who was in the au-
dience suggested to the Board that
the Tax Collector present his list
of tax payers to Mrs. Rish and for
her to check the registered voters
to cut down on extra work and de-
lay and also to make for a more
complete listing.
Commissioner Strickland *stated,
"We might as well ask that the
lists be prepared, since they can
get the names from the public re-
cord anyhow".

Port St. Joe, Florida


Glory Gone Forever
When the cooler weather of the
autumn months at last checked the
devastation of the plague, life and
business in the older town as-
sumed its normal aspect, but the
glory and prosperity of St. Joseph
were gone forever. The most re-
markable result of the calamity,
besides the complete ruin of the
town, was the tradition that gradu-
ally developed that the gallant
city had been a place of utter
wickedness.
One can guess how the legend
arose. Here there 'had 'been a flour-
ishing place, which had been
crushed in a most striking manner,
as if ;by divine wrath. The super-
ficial analogy of Sodom 'and Go-
morrah, and other wicked Biblical
cities, was so apparent that the
temptation to use St. Joseph as an
object lesson to worldly-minded,
amusement-loving persons, could
not be rseisted. However, the town
did not deserve the appellation of
"the wickedest place in the United
States" any more than other cities
along the Gulf coast.
It had its race track and its
public houses where alcoholic
liquors were imbibed in .quanti-
ties; the sailors coming from all
quarters gave it a rough element;
but there is absolutely no evidence
that it was in any way abnormal
in this' respect. In fact, all con-
temporary accounts praise the in-
dustry and liberality of its inhabit-
ants. Some of the most cultured
'people of the lower 'South lived
'here, and long afterwards one of
them, the mother of R. J. Moses,
wrote the following in an almost
mystical strain:
"St. Joseph in ruins is more dear
to my heart than any spot of more
worldly grandeur, so peaceful, so
healthful, it seems as if its very
repose led me nearer to my God,
so free from conventionalities and
restraints, so gloriously stamped
by the Finger of God."

Thy Brother's Keeper?
Am I my brother's keeper? I fear that we as a nation have
not been -- at least to our brothers in Latin America. The
countries south of us seeth and boil in revolution and upheaval
and we sit on our thrones and laugh at their "playing" soldier
and revolutionary coups.
We fear that the evidences just recently brought into the
limelight by Mr. Nixon's visit to South America has shown us that
we have sadly neglected our brother. And this neglect has evi-
dently turned a large segment of our brothers against us.
We have said before -- and still contend -- that the bulk
of our overseas aid should go right here in our own backyard.
At least we will get another shot at it. The money we pour down
a foreign drain will not go to buy Russian arms. It is a sad busi-
ness to neglect so rich a country as South America is in vital min-
erals and agricultural products for a country that will never do
any service for the U. S. Of course, the aid given to these bor-
derline countries (on the borderline of Communism) might buy
some compassion toward the U. S. When they stick the knife
in our back, they might not twist it.


Course Of Attire
Much that we believe about our long-ago ancestors is the
result of evidence plus deduction.
For instance: If archeologists unearth a cave with wall
drawings showing men clad in fur from head to foot, it would be
reasonable to assume the cave sheltered its tenants from a cold

The story of the mistreatment of the Negro people is well
known throughout the world, but the phenomenal improvement
of recent years is hardly noticed. Some of the examples:
Illiteracy was reduced from over 97 per cent in 1880 to
less than 10 per cent in 1952.
There are more Negroes (128,000) in college in the United
States than all the Germans in German universities.
More Negroes own automobiles in the United States than
all 216,000,000 Russians and all the 193,000,000 Negroes in Africa.
Full integration has taken place in the armed forces.
Since 1940 Negro wages have risen 400 per cent as against
250 per cent for whites.
Since 1930 there has been a 2,500 per cent increase in
enrollment of Negroes in colleges. Since 1900 the rate has increas-
ed six times faster than that of white students.
About 200,000 Negroes" own farms averaging 78 acres in
size.
In 1900 only 1 per cent of Negro workers were in industry.
Now the figure is over 30 per cent. About 1,250,000 of the na-
tion's 16,000,000 union members' are Negroes.
Ninty-three tax supported city commissions and 345 semi-
official agencies are working to improve race rt nations.
Negroes have been elected with the help of white votes to
places on city councils in the South. They sit in legislatures and
in Congress.
One of the most important factors in race relations is the
appearance of an upper middle class Negro group an educated,
well-to-do people whose very presence will break down the old
stereotype of the Negro as ignorant and unambitious, and who
can give intelligent leadership to the continuing struggle for
equal rights.

Rolling Along Together
There is great activity in Detroit as the new automobile
models for the next year or the year after that are made sleeker,
longer, wider and more powerful. There is also a lot of scurrying
around in Washington as plans proceed for the national super-
highway plan. We may all be headed for more deficit financing
than ever, but at least we'll be going that way in handsome gaso-
line buggies and on velvet-smooth roads.

And along these same lines: It has been said that the
United States is the only country in the world where a workman
can drive up to sign up for his unemployment check in a new
1958 automobile.

also corn in five designated West
Florida counties. Farmers earn pay-

4d from erosion. The total com-
pensation which may be earned on
the 6,930 'Florida agreements will
amount to '$2,511,481. No Gulf
County farmer has made an agree-
ment to date. Gulf County farmers
till approximately 2,500 to 3,000
acres of land in row crops, but do
not harvest for sale any one of the
basic crops except corn. Our coun-
ty is not one of the five designated
Florida corn allotment counties, as
only the larger corn-producing coun-
ties have been so designated.
What Gulf County Farmers I?0
Gulf County is, however, definite-
ly out in the running in Florida in
the production of timber, Tupelo
honey and livestock. Cattle -are
grown on a sizeable acreage of
grass and clover. Pulpwood is be-
ing grown in immense quantities
annually and the major portion of
the world's production of Tupelo
honey is produced in this county.
Some small amount of dairying is
carried on and numerous home gar-
dens, fruits and nut orchards are
grown. The principal row crops
grown are vorn, velvet beans, soy-
beans, oats, millet, cane, sorghums,
sweet potatoes and cowpeas, The
major portion of this production is
used for livestock (hogs and cws)
feeds. The major portion of Gulf
County lands are employed in the
production of timber. There are
several townships of our county
which are of a quality as being po-
tentially fairly productive of gen-
eral farming to row crops. Our
economy is however being well ser-
ved by the lands being employed as
they are in the production of wood,
which is indeed an important and
essential farm crop. We are ap-
preciative for our county's sound
industry and the firm foundation it
affords for our general well-being.

TOO LATE TO
CLASSIFY
By RUSSELL KAY
Watching a state grow is like
watching a child grow, especially
if it is your state and your chill.
You don't notice much change from
day to day but the change is occur-
ring just the same and before you
realize it both have grown up,
Most of us live in a sort of re-
stricted circle. We know what is
happening in our own backyard or
down the street but we do not
grasp the overall picture of growth
and development taking place all
over the state.
With htis thought in view the
Florida State Chamber of Com-
merce recently issued a 'comprehen-
sive story that gives us a word
picture of what has and is happen-
ing in Florida.
From it we learn that Florida has
over four million permanent resi-
dents whose combined incomes to-
tal over six and a half billion dol-
lars and that's a lot of lettuce In
anybody's language.
We are gaining new residents at
the amazing rate of 2,900 each
week. As they are scattered over
the state, this niflux is hardly no-
ticed but if they all located in one
place it would, create a new city
the size of Chipley, Frostproof or
Goulds. Think of 52 such communi-
ties being established in Florida ev-
ery year and you will begin to get
the idea.
Add to this number of newcom-
ers fi;pm other states our present
internal population increase of
about 1,100 births and you have a
total of 4,000 new people that re-
quire food, shelter, clothing, etc.
These are new consumers and
greater buying power.
Some of these new residents are
older folks with income or pensions
that permit them to retire, but the
larger number are executives, busi-
ness men an dlaborers we need in
constantly increased number to
work in the many new industries,
large and small that are being es-
tablished and older ones that are
constantly, expanding.
While tourism and the citrus in-
dustry are still strong factors Ina
our economy we now have mauy
other avenues of income and em-
ployment found in our growing cat-
tle industry, pulp and paper indus-
try, commercial fishing, truck farm-
ing, garment and textiles and count-
less others.
Big corporations snch as Chem-
strand near Pensacola and the
United States Sugar Corporation at
Clewiston employ many thousands
while small industries give work to
anywhere from a dozen to several
hundred workers.
The commercial production of ra
mie in the Everglades gives prom-
ise of providing us with another
giant industry in the production of
this valuable fiber which has sev-
eral times the strength of cotton.
About 2,500 acres are now being
grown and much larger acreage is
contemplated.
Florida certainly has reason to
count her 'blessings for they are le-
gion.
CARD OF THANKS
The Family of the late Robert
(Tapper wishes to express their
grateful appreciation and thanks
to all the people of -Port St. Joe
and surrounding communities for
the beautiful floral offerings, the
ChoirAltars Boys and the visiting
Priest for their help in making our
burden lighter. 'Our heart felt
thanks and may God bless each and
every one of you.
