"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalchicola-Chattahochee Valley"
SORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 19'S NUMBER 51
by W$r.,LEY R. RAMSEY
The race strife that is strangling
our country raised its ugly head
in Port St. Joe on Monday night
of this week.
We are not doing a news story
on the altercation because we can
get no official' word of what hap-
pened other than the fact that a
demonstration did take place on
the carnival grounds Monday night.
As usual, the city police depart-
ment refuses to give out any in-
formation on what has happened.
We presume that their only rea-
son for continuing to withhold
such infomration is motivated by
the fact that if we hide our eyes
from the ugly facts they will dis-
appear. Withholding the facts of
such things that go on in Port
St. Joe and Gulf County has been
a major fault of both the local
police and the County Sheriff's
office ever since vWe came to
Gulf County, six years ago.
While we hold the law enforce-
ment officers of both branches of
our local law as friends of ours,
they are still tight-mouthed.
From unofficial sources we have
learned that a group of teen-age
white and Negro youths "had it
out" Monday night.
Port St. Joe and Gulf County has
escaped all of the ugliness that is
rampant in other parts of the na-
tion-even the world-but a few
mor e irresponsible actions by
youths (and suppression of facts by
adults) could lead to far more ser-
ious complications in Gulf County.
Frankly we would welcome such
strife just about as much as we
would welcome the plague. But,
some people thrive on such as this.
We would charge the police,
both City and County that they
make it exceeding rough on any
other persons carrying out acts
like this in the future, regardless
of their color.
Jail sentences and stiff fines
will curb any rioting tendencies
that the white and Colored in
Gulf County have before it gets
started. We urge that they spare
no punishment in dealing with
such incidents as this. We have
a nice town-let's keep it that
And now to more pleasant thing'.
We ended our fishing fast last

the political race. A fishing we

Friday afternoon late, we took
off with Doyle Retherford, Andy
Jordan, Russell Bowlin and Buck
Byrd and went to Bryant's Landing
to fish for our supper. Old retired
Army cook Andy Jordan fixed sup-
iper serving up fried fish, hush
puppies and cole slaw with all the
comforts of home (save paper nap-
kins)'. After dinner we started kid-
ding Andy about what we were go-
ing to have for dessert. "Oh", said
Andy, "we have ice cold waterme-
lon". And he did too.
That night we took off with Rus-
sell Bowlin and Buck Byrd (with
misgivings at first at being out on
that river in pitch dark) and soon
found that there was nothing to
worry about when the first frog
was sighted. We'll swear that Rus-

0. A. JENKINS
Head, Cancer Crusaje
The American Cancer Society
has made many .'- 1t strides in re-
cent years, but so much remains
to be done to alleviate the suffer-
ing of mankind caused by the de-
mon. Cancer, that it will take the
combined efforts of all those who
have worked in the past and the
enlistment of all who will work in
the future to enable us to provide
ti.e funds so necessary in this
g eat humanitarian cause. I urge
a'l local units and unit leaders to
siart laying the groundwork now
for the most successful Crusade
we have yet known."
Dr. Harris also announced a
grant in the amount of $15,000 for
cancer research at the University
of Miami School of Medicine under
the direction of Dr. W. A. D. An-
derson. Dr. Homer F. Marsh, Dean
of the Medical School, pointed out
that one of the heaviest areas of
research at the school is in cancer
and that this grant will stimulate
even greater interest in cancer re-
search throughout the University.
The Florida Division Executive
Committee heard a report from the
1958 Crusade Chairman Dr. H. D.
Van Schaick that the Crusade had
reached a total of $709,544. Thirty
per cent of this sum will go direct-
ly into cancer research, 60% will
remain in Florida for the Society's
overall program, and 10% will go
to the National office. A goal for
the 1959 Crusade in Florida-will
be set at the Annual Meeting of
the Division to be held in West
Palm Beach the week end of No-
bantam hen and five little chicks.
It's a good thing the rabbit got
away some time ago, so the chick-
ens could have his pen.
We happened to remark the oth-
er day about how long it would
take those five little chickens to
get big enough to kill and eat. Now
those six kids have posted a 24
hour guard around the chicken
Our feelings were mollified some
though, because along with the
chickens, the little woman returned
with several jars of good home-
made plum jelly, which just goes
to show that .a woman KNOWS
that the way to a man's heart 'is
through his stomach.

at a price that gets steeper the

If the 420 acres of mudflats are

purchaser, Pick Hollinger, will
have to pay only $1.00 per acre.
If he fills it in three to five years
he'll have to pay another $4.00
per acre and if the filling is de-
layed past five years it will cost
him $10.00 per acre.
The tract, in St. Joseph Bay,

The trustees lauded the propo-
sal as a boon to Gulf County if

price as a means of spurring the
developers into filling the mud-
flats as soon as possible.
William Wightman, spokesman
for the purchaser, said he didn't
think the land would be filled for
at least five years. The purchas-
er has considerable upland hold-

City Awarded Plaque For Full Year
Of No Traffic Fatalities: Second Time
Port St. Joe received its second straight award for no traffic
deaths for a year Tuesday night at the Port St. Joe Lion's Club meet-
ing. The award was made by Lt. 0. L. McArthur of Panama City to
Mayor J. L. Sharit.
iSgt. Frank Eskridge, safety edu-
cation officer of the FH'P gave a
short talk prior to the presentation
of the award, on. what Port St. Joe
has had to do-to earn the award.
"Two years ago, Gulf Cc unty
was the most dangerous place in
the U. S. to drive, according to sta-
tistics", said Eskridge. "At this
time Gulf County killed more peo-
ple per mile traveled than any oth-
er such area in the United States".
He gave credit -to spartan policing
of traffic practices within the
county as the main cause for the
decline in traffic deaths.
Eskridge gave -the act of fol-
lowing too close as the number one
cause of traffic fatalities in Flor-
ida for the past 15 years. Exceed-
ing safe speeds was the second
cause and failure to grant right of
way, third. Eskridge said our traf-
fic .speed limits work against us.
"In times of limited vision, con-
gested traffic and other conditions
that should slow drivers down, a
great number of vehicle operators
insist on maintaining the legal lim-
it of speed. This can kill you", Esk-

Coach Craig stated.
Sportswriters of the Pensacola
Journal have picked the Sharks to
repeat their performance as North-
west Conference Chamipions thru
a poll of the Conference coaches.
In the balloting, the Sharks re-
ceived an easy majority as the
coaches voted the Sharks to be
the champs again in 1958.

Of the five coaches in the North-
west Florida Conference casting
prediction ballots, Port St. Joe re-
ceived the poll of three coaches
-to repeat their 1957 performance.
In tomorrow night's game on
their home field, the Sharks will
meet probably their most ferocious
rivals, the Apalachicola Sharks.
Chapman has been unable to defeat
the Sharks for the last several
years but have always been able
to make a very good game of it and
put a scare into the Sharks.
The probable starting line-up
will be as follows:

Never in my life have I felt so humble. I am now
bound to the good people of this Circuit by the strong-
est possible ties. Certainly, I shall strive daily to imr
prove myself and will continue my best efforts to justify
this wonderful confidence.
This is not a personal victory for Warren L. Fitz-

efforts of my many friends and I am at a loss to express,
even' vaguely, my sincere and deep appreciation.
I will respect your confidence and, with the help of
the good Lord, I will make you proud of your Circuit

to join hands with me in my sincere efforts to conduct
our Circuit Court for the benefit of every person in our

standingly great because of the service which it renders.
For myself and my family I offer the warmest and

payments to the unemployed in
Florida in August dropped $31,044
from July to $3,183,254.
S t a te Industrial Commission
Chairman James T. Vocelle said
improved business conditions ap-
peared to be an important factor
in the drop, although the number of
unemployed workers exhausting
their right to collect unemployment
compensation also contributed- to
Vocelle said the drop ran counter
to the usual summer trend. Un-
emp'loyment compensation iay-
inents usually ran higher in August
than in July.
Total payments this August were
$979,972 above the $2,203,282 for
The balance In the state's unem-
rployment compensation fund at the
end of August was $89,127,565.
Of the 31 Florida State Employ-
ment offices reporting for their
sections, 17 reported decreases in
the total payments of unemploy-
ment compensation for August.
They were: Jacksonville, Miami,
Ft. Lauderdale, St. Petersburg,
Panama City, Hollywood, Tampa,

Qualify for Income
Dependents of disability benefi-
ciaries can now qualify for month-
ly payments under social security,
John V. Carey, district manager,
social security office,, said this
week. Also, the 1958 changes in
Social Security make it easier for
totally disabled adult children to
qualify for benefits.
Husbands, age 65; wives, 62; or
wives, any age, -where there are en-
titled children in the home, can
draw benefits for the month of
September, 1958, Carey continued.
Minor unmarried children and un-
married totally disabled adult chil-
dren -can also qualify for a benefit
for September. In each case, an
application must be filed for this
new category of benefits.
It is no longer necessary that a
totally disabled adult child be sup-
ported by a parent to be eligible
tor consideration, Carey added. The
same rules now apply to disabled
adult children as are followed for
minor children. The removal of the
requirmeent is effective for Sep-
tember, 1958, and a new applica-
tion must be filed.
The definition of disability in the
Social Security Law has not been
changed, Carey emphasized. An in-
dividual to qualify for disability
must still have a condition which
is so severe that he cannot do any
kind of substantial, gainful work.
further, disability, mnetal or physi-
cal, must be established by the in-
dividual with medical evidence.

fice for further information. All of-
fices have a supply of leaflets avail-
able gplaining these And other

New Safety Codes
Made By SIC
TALLAHASSEE (Special) In
the face of a rising industrial fa-
tality rate, State Industrial Com-.
mission Chairman James T. Vo-
celle has urged the public to co-
operate in the observance of the
new state industrial safety codes.
In making the appeal Vocelle
pointed out that industrial deaths
in Florida for the first five months
of this year totaled 101 'against 67
for the first five months of 1957.
Industrial injuries or the same
peilod this year reached 73,000.
For the first five .months of 1957
they were 69,000.
Vocelle said the two new indus-
trial safety codes aimed at reduc-
ing the state fatality and injury
Loll went into effect on May,15.
One prohibits the use of mater-
ial hoists for hauling men. The
other requires the adequate wiring
and effective grounding of all port-
able electric power tools.
Since the codes went into effect,
commission safety representatives
have been checking trouble spots
and issuing instructions.
Vocelle said, "These codes were
adopted unanimously by the com-
mission on April 8 after eight
months of intensive study by the
Safety Code Committee and the
Safety Engineering Advisory Com-
mittee of the commission. During
that eight months ideas on the
modes were widely solicited from
allb ranches of industry, labor and
There were eight industrial elec-
trocutions in 1957 due to the faulty
wiring and grounding of electric
tools, and seven deaths were caus-
ed by defective material hoists, Vo-
The Safety Engineering Advisory
Committee has three other codes
under consideration. If approved,
they will reduce the hazards on
crane booms and power lines, ex-
cavations and personnel hoists.
The' Industrial Commission has
sent 35,000 copies of the codes for
portable electric power tools and
material hoists to all Florida con-
tractors and manufacturers with
three or more employees, and to
certain other businesses.
The penalty against the employ-
ers for refusing to comply with
the provisions of the codes is a
maximum penalty of $100 for each
offense, and the penalty against
employees is a 25 per cent reduc-
tion in workmen's compensation
payments to which they may be
otherwise entitled under the law.

economically wasteful and scientifi-
cally unsound, food faddism can b.:
damaging to health.
Individual food fads stem from
acute or chronic psychological dis-
turbances, even including psychosis.
In the individual faddism file are
found such odd dietary practices
seen during pregnancy as craving
for cornstarch, clay chalk, charcoal
and tree bark. The fancied prefer-
ences of some people lean toward
kangeroo tails, fried grasshoppers,
baby bees and pickled ants, often
evidence of food neurosis. In psy-
chotic or schizoid individuals spells
of fasting as a !gpethod of improving
the mind or eliminating impurities
are confidently indulged in.
Collective food faddism comes
about through acceptance by a
group of some,, .litary practice de-
signed to impro6e health or cure
disease. A food fiad may exemplify
a cultural trend or it may be stimu-
lated by psychological exploitation
through smooth-talking, pseudo-
sophisticated, high-pressure sales-
Several false beliefs about food
are widely su. cribed to by fad-
dists. One phantasy is that a single
food or group of foods has a special
quality or power out of all propor-
tion to its nutritional content, for
instance items like yoghurt, black-
strap molasses,, wheat germ oil,
brown sugar or seaweed. Some fad-
dist regimens of restricted diets for
weight reduction are nutritionally
inadequate and harmful to health.
Clinical nutrition is more and
moit becoming a science based on
fact. The family physician has

On Igloo Doors
In Newest State
When more than eleven mil-

urged to "knock on every door"
to find new members interested
in advancing the welfare of

Here, as throughout the U.S.,
the National Congress of Parents
and Teachers will seek to add
some half-million new "parents,

to what is already the nation's
largest voluntary service organ-
Mrs. James C. Parker, of
Grand Rapids, Mich., president
of the National Congress, cites
"the dynamic potential of Alas-
ka, our newest state," as "com-
parable to the spirit which has
enabled Parent-Teacher associa-
tions to contribute so much to
the welfare of children."
The variety and scope of P.T.A.
activities in the 61-year history of
the National Congress are re-
flected today, Mrs. Parker noted,
in the everyday life of Alaskans
which ranges in spirit from the

Stanley walked three miles
through the rain to pay 500 he
had borrowed because, as he
put it, "I am a man who keeps
his word." Stanley still takes
great pride in his honesty. He
is a straight shooter and he
never lies. But he is unhappy!
This is not surprising, for his
rcgtlon is his pride. He does
not see that pride often keeps
a man from being his best and
may make hint his worst.
Stanley is like the young
man who asked Jesus how he
might have eternal life. To
show him the meager spiritual
quality of his life Jesus re-
minded the young man of the
Ten Commni'-'-wnts. He said,
"All these t I have I kept
frommyyouthi,., '(Matt, 19:20).
Jesus saw that his .pride was
his undoing. It had put him
in competition with God, and
caused him to go about with
an invisible flag, so to speak, on
which was written, "I am my
own savior." So Jesus at once
struck a blow at his pride: "Go
and sell that thou hast, and
give to the poor and come
follow me" (Malt. 19:21).
Jesus was not discounting the
importance of keeping the com-
mandments. He was emphasiz-
ing that total surrender to God
whatever is involved, is man's
only way to heaven. Note his
strong words: "Go sell .
give come follow."
What Jesus said is something
that Stanley needs to get
straight. God does not want
just so much of his lime, his
money, his talent; he w'anist
him, all of himn. .-tanley re-
sents God's intrusir-ir into his
life; but it is in his resentment
that Stanley acts most like a
god. What he is really saying
is, "I am a little god, and I
don't want to be run over by a
big God." He sulks and takes
his motor boat to the lake on
Sunday, saying: "A man has to
live his own life. The church
people make too many de.
mands." He goes on burning
his life out in a furious search
for satisfaction and content-
ment. "I am free," he says;
and from the way he acts it
would seem that he is right.
But Stanley is not free; he is a
slave to his pride, his passions,
and sin, Though God wants
to set him free, he cannot do
so until Stanley surrenders his
life to him .,,.
Stanley says to God, "All
right! Give me a sign." God
replies: "I have already given
you a sign, that of my only
begotten Son the life he
l'-el, ttl- death he died, his
'vriuimph over the grave,"
What did Stanley do? What
must all of us do? We ought
to keep the Ten Command,
ments, but unaided we cannot
keep them. We need the help
that only. God can give. We
can get it only by turning from
sin, our sins, taking Jesus
Christ as Saviour for both time
and eternity, and surrendering
to him as Lord. Then shall Ae
find that when the Son of God
makes us free we arc free in-
deed (John 8:35).
