First Brick Building Built
Here Is Being Torn Down
by Wh$r.-EY R. RAMSEY
Well, we went after the little
gray birds Saturday, along with
about 20 others. There was more
hunters on our field than there
We went with Earl Tom Prid-
geon and son Tommy, the sharp-
shooters of the bunch. And then
there were hunters like Gannon
Buzzett, Dick Lamberson, Dick
Spillers, Joel Strait, Woodrow Hen-
derson, Byron Eells, and people like
that. We removed these last "hunt
ters" from the same sentence with
hunters like the Pridgeons. And
then there was the so-so sharp
shooters like Blake Thomason and
Prank Pate. If you ever go bird
hunting with this batch, you should
park yourself across the field from
those in the second sentence. Then

birds back over your way.
If Tom Pridgeon had stayed
home, we would have been high
man for the bunch with five birds.
Tom got eight.
It was drizzling rain and the
birds either weren't there or were
afraid to venture across our field,
but it was fun for the first day of
the season anyway.

Building Was Built By R. A. Costin
In 1914 For Store Building
The first brick building constructed in Port St. Joe since
the days of the old town of St. Joseph, which was destroyed over
a hundred years ago, is now being demolished. The work is being
done by George G. Tapper, present owner of the property, to
make room for the completion of a new and modern shopping
center, which was begun a little over a year ago.
The building now being demol-
ished was built by R. A. Costin, a
PFCR S Bp0 So lg pioneer settler in this city. Mr.
Costin came to Port St. Joe in 1909

town. Five years later, in 1914, the
brick building was completed and

Conservation Is A
Burt Carey, of the Soil Conserva-
toin Service addressed the Rotary
Club last Thursday on the need for
soil conservation in Florida now,
to preserve our water and soil re-
Carey said that until recent years
Florida had given no thought to
conserving water, but that the re-
source was rapidly diminishing and
conservation methods are a must.
He reported that acres fit for cul-
tivation are disappearing at the
rate of a half million acres per
year, while the population and
need for more food production con-
tinues to rise.
"Don't be misled by our current
food surpluses" he said. The cur-
-rent food surplus is about five per
cent of the total production, while
the population increase is rapidly
catching up with this surplus. He
predicted that in five years, the
rise in population would use up all
of the available surpluses now on
Expenditures Set At $267,674.43
More Property On Tax Rolls
The Port St. Joe City Commission Tuesday night approved
a tentative budget for the year 1959 which will lower the millage
rate of city taxes by three mills. The budget will call for expen-
ditures of $167,674.43 for 1959. The budget for the past year
called for expenditures of $157,097.82.
The budget was tentatively ap-
proved at the Tuesday meeting.
Final approval will not come until
the meeting of October 21 after
publication of the ordinance setting
the budget which will be found in
this week's issue of The Star.
The tax bite to the individual
tax-payers, in addition to having a
reduced operating budget, will fur-
ther be softened by the fact that
additional taxable property has
been added to the city tax rolls.
Reductions in expenditures occur
in the Administrative Expense
Fund, Street Maintenance Fund,
Operation Municipal Hospital Fund,
and Contracts Paybale Fund. The
only increase in the budget comes
in the Police Department Fund
which is up 2,000.00 over last year.
Debt Service Funds have been in-
creased from $32,797..82 for last
year to $59,648.43 for this year.
This increase is brought about by
bonds floated during 1958 for addi-
tions to the Municipal Hoslpital.
The Hospital bonds are retired by
receipts from the cigarette tax.
Ad valorem tax rate for last year
was 13.5 mills. This year's taxes
have been set at 10.5 mills.

SO TO CHURCH SUNDAY
Last Thursday night, under diffi-
cult playing conditions, Port St.
Joe Junior High defeated the Jun-
ior High team of DeFuniak 'Springs
by a score of 33 to 6.
The game was played during a
downpour of rain that never let up
during the contest. The ability of
the Junior Sharks holding on to the
wet ball made the difference. The
excellent ball handling of Freddy
Bowdoin and the fine running of
Nelson Hall, Freddy Joines, Ches-
ley Fensom and Blaine Tharpe
provided the scoring.-
The defensive play of Richard
Arnold, Joe Whaley, Richard
Thompson, Michael McKenzie, Da-
vid Nance, Robert Costin, Courtney
Martin, George Boyer, and John
Graham led the Sharks to a 19-0
The second halt saw Nelson Hall
taking a hand-off from Freddy
Bowdoin to score early in the third
quarter. The last touchdown was
made on a handoff from Curtiss
Hammond to Freddy Joines. Cur-
tisa Hammond passed to Richard
Arnold for the extra, point which
ended the scoring for the Junior

FALL SOWING OF SWEET PEAS
iSWeet peas should be planted
*hete they will receive full sun-
light or only partial shade, and
where air circulation is good. They
grow best in cool, moist, yet well
drained soil. It is, therefore, impor-
talt to give special attention to
Dig the soil deeply, and if poad-
ble work in generous amounts of
compost, peat moss, or well rotted
manure to add humus and improve
drainage. Sand or cinders may also
be necessary to lighten extremely
heavy ground. Lime at the rate of
one half pound to a fifteen foot
row cadi be Incorporated to correct
somewhat acid or sour soil. Rake to
pulverize the surface, an andat the
same time work in one pound of
,bonemeal, superphosphate, or a
complete fertilizer to fifteen feet
Make a furrow 1 to 2 inches
deep, drop the seeds two to three
inches apart, and cover with fine
oll; Mound the ground over the
rows slightly to prevent water from
remaining there. Rows should be
At leatt three feet apart. Where
winter Are severe, after the ground
has frozen hard, mulch the plant-
ing with a loose covering of straw,
salt hay, or evergreen branches.
Remove this mulch In the spring.
For the finest flowers, we rec-
ommend the trench method of
planting. Remove the top soil to a
depth of a spade or shovel blade,
or as deeply as the good top soil
extends. Place this at the side of
the trench and dig up and cultivate
the subsoil or neit layer without
removing it from the trench. Add a
liberal quantity of manure or fer-
tilizer. When the subsoil is well
loosened, replace the topsoil pre-
viously piled at the side of the
trench. Rake in bonemeal- or super-
phosphate at the rate of one pound
to fifteen feet of row, and sow
seeds as previously described.
Deep digging and preparation of
the soil permits the vines to root

Self-Defeating Alliances With Vice
Every so often the alcoholic beverage industry launches a
public relations campaign which might make the naive believe
that schools, hospitals, and public improvements are heavily de-
-pendent upon the taxes liquor pays. This is an argument commer-
cialized and institutionalized vice employs frequently. And fre-
quently legislators and public officials must be counted among
For instance, New York City, which often epitomizes on a
huge scale problems nationally familiar, is finding that "bingo"
which it expects its voters to legalize for religious and charitable
sponsors, may cost at least as much as it brings in. The pay of
the auditors, inspectors, and investigators necessary to insure
that the sponsors ar elegalized sponsors and the proceeds do go
to legalized beneficiaries promises to exceed the city's income
from license fees.
The easy alternative, of course, would be to throw the
games wide open. This, besides endangering the interests of
presumably philanthropic causes, would put the city in partner-
ship with the professional gambling fraternity.
The perils of extending alliances in this direction farther
than the already exist apparently have given the city fathers
pause., In an effort to stretch the city's income to cover estab-
lished services it has been proposed to ask the legislature to legal-
ize and tax off-track betting on races. Mayor Wagner says, how-
ever, he will appoint first a committee of "outstanding citizens"
to study both the moral and fiscal aspects of such a device.
The question that must continually be raised is: How
much more in untainted taxes is collectible where money spent
for gambling, liquor, and other forms of vice is spent instead on
productive enterprises and their constructive products?
The Christian Science Moniotr
What You Get From 'Peter' Pay Back To 'Peter'
In these days of decreased spending in Gulf County, we
have urged that the citizens do every possible bit of their buying
right here in Port St. Joe and Gulf County.
We can think of enough good reasons for so doing to fill
this entire page but suffice it to say that it is the neighborly
thing to do, and cheaper for you.
To carry this thing farther, we would like to urge the
same thing of the County Commission and the Gulf County Board
of Public Instruction. In looking over their minutes, we see
thousands of dollars spent each month out of the county on goods
and services that could be furnished by Gulf County businesses.
Wouldn't it be easier for these two bodies and a financial boost
to the County's business for their spending to be done in Gulf
County. Practically everything they use can be purchased right
here. We, therefore, go on record as urging that these two boards
confine their bids to Gulf County merchants.
Keep that money at home so the local merchants may pay
their taxes next year to replenish that which is spent.
We feel that the two county boards will benefit by bet-
ter service, better guarantees, better prices, and certainly they
will feel better for having bolstered the economy of their home

Fla. Pulpwood Valued
At $39,960,000 In '57
Atlanta, Ga., (Special)-The val-
ue of pulpwood produced in Florida
totaled $39,960,000 in 1957, accord-
ing to the Southern Pulpwood Con-
servation Association, Atlanta.
This value was based on a 12-
state pulpwood production survey
by the U. S. Forest Service Experi-
ment Stations in Asheville, N. C.,
and New Orleans, La., in coopera-
tion with SPCA, Atlanta.
A total of 65 of Florida's 67 coun-
ties shared in this income, with
Baker, Marion, Santa Rosa, and St.
Johns Counties leading in this har-
vest of the timber crop.
For the South as a whole, the
pulpwood production totaled $396,-
Phone BAll 7-9291
000,000, with more than 90 per cent
of the counties in the 12-state re-
gion from Virginia to the forested
area of Texas participating.
The survey revealed that more
than 15 per cent of the total pulp-
wood production was hardwood. It
also showed a continued trend to-
ward a more efficient utilization
of trees harvested. An all-time high
of 6 per cent of the total produc-
tion came from the use of saw-
mill slabs and veneer cores for
which the pulp and ,paper industry
provided a market.
H. J. Malsberger, General Man-
ager of the SPCA, said, "With signs
of better business conditions ahead,
it is expected that the decline of
2.8 per cent of pulpwood produc-
tion of 1957 compared with 1956
will soon be reversed."

The meeting came to order at 6:20 p.m.
The Engineer told the Board that be-
cause of the proposed development of St.
Joe Point, there is a need for a survey to
locate the proposed road that will run
from State Road 30 to St. Joe Point, via
Cape San Bias; that the Board has hereto-
fore requested the State Road Department
to make this survey, but th, r, ,.- was
made by letter and not by r-: l.r; :the
State Road Department informs us that a
resolution calling for the survey will be
required before the survey can be made.
After discussion, there was a motion by
Comm. Price, seconded by Comm. Strick-
land and duly carried, that the attorney pre-
pare the necessary resolution.
The Board discussed the possibilities of
making a survey from the Willie Rowell
Fish Camp road where it intersects State
Road 71 and running East to the Dead
Lakes, thence North to intersect with the
Magnolia Landing road. The Board agreed
that this survey is needed but made no
decision at this time.
Comm. Strickland discussed the need for
a certain alley in the Highland View area
and suggested that the Road Department
discontinue the project it is now working
on long enough to construct the alley.-After
discussion, there was*a motion by Comm.

Blood: The River of Life
No other part of our body works so hard or does so many vital
jobs as does our blood. The average person has 12 to 13 pints of
blood. It is moved constantly through a network of about 60,000
miles of arteries, veins and capillaries in its job of feeding tissue,
regulating temperature, removing waste and fighting disease. There
is nothing else in the world quite 4
like blood, and there is no sub-
stitute for it.
Just what is blood? It is com-
posed of a number of things, the
largest portion by volume being
plasma. This is the fluid part of
the blood and is about 92 per cent
Probably the hardest little
worker in the blood is the red cell,
which is made primarily in the i
bone marrow. Red cells are sau- c _

"I don't want to die and go
to hell," said a husky young
sailor who lingered at a church
after the worship service.
He told the pastor how he
ran away to sea as an over-
grown fifteen-year-old, and had,
during World War II, sailed on
freighters through mine-infested
waters. said: "Preacher,
I've never .,een in jail, though
I've done things I should not
have done. I never worried
much about it until recently.
In the last few months I've
dreamed several times that our
ship was shipwrecked and that
I was drowned in the ocean;
and preacher, I know that if I
die like I am, I'll go to hell. I
don't want to die and go to
In those unforgettable words,
"I don't want to die and go to
hell," the sailor voiced his con-
viction that there is a life be-
yond the grave and that choices
in life determine fate in death.
He believed that unrepenting
sinners would spend eternity in
hell, and that godly believers
would know the joys of an
eternal abode in heaven. The
Bible says: "The wages of sin
is death; but the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ
our Lord"- (Romans 6:23).
Two things lie beyond the grave
- eternaI death and life ever.
The death beyond the grave
of which the Bible speaks is a
living death where "the fire is
not quenched" (Mark 9:44).
It is the inevitable end of the
rebellious soul, an "everlasting
punishment" (Matthew 25:46)
that the unbelieving bring upon
The life beyond the grave is
"everlasting life" (John 3:16).
It is the place of perfect knowl-
edge, "For now we see through
a glass, darkly; but then face to
face" (1 Corinthians 13:12).
It is a place of perfect peace,
for "God shall wipe away all
tears from their eyes, and there
shall be no more death, neither
sorrow, nor crying, neither shall
there be any more pain" (Reve-
What lies beyond the grave
for you? It depends on what
you do with Christ. He said,
"He that heareth my word, and
believeth on him that sent me,
hath everlasting life, and shall
not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto
life" (John 5:24).
Baptists preach Christ and
him crucified, as the one and
only way the complete and
adequate way to heaven. Right
now, you can turn from all
known sin and trust Christ as
your personal Saviour. If you
will do this God will give you
his free gift of eternal life. You
can't have it any other way,
