"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-SECOND YEAR -ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1958 NUMBER 11
History of This
Section of Florida
The Kiwanis Club of Port St.
Joe had a very interesting program
Tuesday noon when Dr. Ralph Wa-
ger of Panama City, newly elected
vice-president of the Northwest
Florida Historical Society, gave a
little of the history of Northwest
Florida to the group.
Dr. Wager' was introduced by
his son, Dr. William F. Wager of
this city, and a member of the Ki-
According to Dr. Wager, North-
west Florida was one of the first
settled locations in the new world.
Pensacola became a settlement in
1569, just four years after St. Au-
gustine, recognized as the oldest
settlement in the United States,
was settled in 1565. The English
and the Spanish developed the area
and, considering both nation's re-
luctance to give it up, saw great
potential for the area. Dr. Wager
said that St. Joseph's Bay must
have been a recognized good har-
bor, even back then, because thee
earliest maps of the area name
the Bay de St. Joseph. Northwest
Florida was governed by the Bri-
tish from 1763 to 1783. After this
period, the Spanish took over in
1,783 and held it until 1818 at which
time Florida was granted to the
United States in 1821.
Local recorded 'history begins
with the Forbes purchase in 1818
of a million acres of land between
Apalachicola and St. Marks. This
land was originally Spanish land
grants and it took the Forbes for-
ces until 1835 to ratify their pur-
chase. They then literally owned
the entire city of Apalachicola.
The Forbes land titles superceded
titles that most of the residents
had in Apalachicola and they were
in fact, squatters,'on Forbes land.
The Forbes company decided to
get rich quick selling the people.
land they had already developed at
high prices..The people, disgruntled
at this practice just packed their
sacks and moved to the present
Site of St. Joseph ahnd St. Joseph's
,More recent history of the pres-
ent city of Port St. 'Joe, which suc-
ceeds the old destroyed city of St.
Joseph goes back to 1868. In this
year, the father of T. H. Stone,
first citizen of Port St. Joe, bought
8,000 acres on the present site of
'Port St. Joe for $126.00. He never
occupied the land and his son,
T. H. (Hig) paid the taxes on the
property after his father's death
until he finally moved here to start
life in the new St. Joe.
St. Joe began to grow as a mo-
dern town when the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad ran a line to
Port St. Joe to take out products
of naval stores and lumber opera-
Port St. Joe's entire history is
linked with rail travel. Back in its
heydey, the first steam railroad in
Florida was constructed from Lake
Wimico to a point on Depot
Creek about 1835. Lake Wimico
was 4oo shallow to handle the big
boats and so the next year the
railroad line was moved from lola
on the Apalachicola to the new
town of St. Joseph-all to spite and
out-do the Forbes company which
had taken over Apalachicola.
Dr. Wager's talk was very infor-
mative and well received by all
Guests of the Club Tuesday were
Terry Porter from the Key Club
and Tom Ford.
Looking for Picture
The Port St. Joe Historical So-

would like a print. They are will-

Craig was not very hopeful in
his outlook, calling attention to the
fact that only one regular player
was returning from last year's
squad, "add this to the fact that
we have only one boy who barely

trouble as far as winning games
go", Craig said.

that Port St. Joe isn't in the win-

Architect Norman Gross Hired
To Draw Plans and Specifications
The Port St. Joe City Commission hired Architect Norman
Gross of Panama City yesterday afternoon to begin work on con-
struction plans for Port St. Joe's expanded hospital. The City
expects to spend around a half million dollars building renovating
and furnishing the hospital facilities now operated by the City.
When the new construction and
refurbishing of the old building is
completed, Port St. Joe will have a
49-bed hospital, second to none in
this area. The present structure is
designed for 22 beds and is now
19 years old. The only replacements
that have been ihade on the origin-
al structure and equipment is a
new x-ray machine and a new ster-
The improved hospital will be
three-fifths larger than the present
structure. All new additions will be
made in front of, to the left side
,and in back of the present build-
ing. All administrative, supply, kit-
chen and operating facilities will'
be in the front section of the build-
ing along wth the waiting rooms.
Beds will be placed in rooms in a
wing running along the *back side
of the hospital.
None of the rooms will be crowd-
ed. All rooms are designed to take
care of one more bed than will be
originally placed in them to take
care of any emergency without un-
The new structure will contain
two operating rooms, two delivery
rooms and the most modern of
equipment. The front entrance of
the building will be re-designed to
give it a serviceable, mn'derx, ap-

but plenty of room has been pro-
vided where it is needed.
In the meeting yesterday after-
noon, the City Commission and
their architect met with represen-
tatives of the Hill-Burton Act, who
is putting up a good sum of the
money, to look at a suggested floor
plan submitted by the H-B men to
incorporate all the qualifications
required by the Act. Minor chan-
ges are being made on the floor
plan and Gross will take over from
there. He had already submitted
several sketches which the H-B
men incorporated in their plan.
The new structure will be com-
pletely air-conditioned with adjust-
able temperatures in each room,

rooms and other physical things

"But even during this time of

Pope pointed out that this time
of the year, the woods are dead

"Let us stay home over the holi-

Musicians May Join Army
T and Play In Army Band
Sergeant A. C. Blalock, the Uni-
ted States Army Recruiter in Pan-
area City, said this week that quali-
fied musicians may now enlist in
the Army to play with a band on a
post of their choice in the Third
United States Army area.
The local recruiter said that the
Department of the Army has made
special provisions in this area in
order for musicians to serve with
an Army band near their home.
At the present there are band
vacancies at Fort McClellan, Ala-
bama, and at Fort Rucker, Alabama.
Four Georgia Army posts have va-
cancies in their bands. They are
Fort Benning, Fort Gordon, Fort
McPherson and Fort Stewart. Fort
Bragg, in North Carolina, has band
openings as does Fort Jackson,
In addition, the recruited said va-
cancies exist at Fort Campbell,
The following instruments are in-
cluded in the vacancy lists: Cornet,
STrumpet, Baritone, French Horn,
Trombone, Tuba, Flute, Oboe, Clar-
inet, Bassoon, Saxophone, Drums
,4ergaant Blalock emphasizedd
that the new band program is open
to former servicemen as well as
youths with no prior military ser-
vice. He said, however, that only
male musicians are eligible at this
Carrots for the Rabbit
Have you made your Christmas Seal contribution? Many
of your neighbors have, according to the Gulf County Tuberculo-
sis Association. Are you one of the ones who have not? Did
you say to yourself, "They won't miss my small gift."
But your small gift is the whole point of the Christmas
Seal Sale. It was founded on the principle that small contribu-
tions from the many, many people who want to see TB licked
will do the job. The TB association people don't high-pressure
their friends and neighbors into contributing. They don't solicit
in stores and factories or ask for payroll deductions. They don't
ring doorbells or solicit by phone. They trust implicitly in a let-
ter explaining why money is needed to fight TB, a letter you re-
ceive and answer in private. In the more than 50 years of the
Christmas Seal Sale their faith has been rewarded annually.
But you're still asking, "What difference will my few dollars
make?" Here5s one small example out of many. In a laboratory
in Philadelphia rabbits are nibbling on carrots. These rabbits,
which like any other rabbits, have been bred for generations for
one purpose -- to find out why some get sick when infected
with TB germs and others do not. Some day this research may
lead to a method of making us' all resistant to tuberculosis.
Christmas Seal funds help support this research. But if
that support has to be withdrawn because there isn't enough
money? If there aren't enough carrots to feed those rabbits?
How about it? Send your contribution today.
A Splendiforous Parade, Gentlemen
We have heard on many sides that Thursday's Santa Claus
parade is the biggest thing that has ever happened in Port St.
Joe in so far as getting out the people is concerned.
We agree. The Merchants Division of the Port St. Joe
Chamber of Commerce, are to be roundly congratulated for their
fine celebration Thursday night.
The crowd of people attending the affair was the biggest
we have ever seen in Port St. Joe for any event bar none.
Certainly the floats and the entire production carried out
the spirit of Christmas. We cannot say enough good things
about the response that the Merchant's Division receive on differ-
ent organizations floats in the parade. 0. C. Dykes and his parade
committee are to be congratulated for formulating the best parade
ever to hit Port St. Joe with the possible exception of the parade
in 1938 observing the Centennial Celebration. All of the float
- builders did a fine job.
One of the most heartening things about the Christmas
parade is that it went over so good that people are already mak-
r ing plans for next year. That's a good sign.
S We're proud of the showing our town made. And we are
especially proud of the Merchant's Division for putting forth the
effort to give us a Christmas parade that is causing people to talk
for miles around.
Survey Shows Negroes
Prefer Separate Schools
Proof of what has been obvious all over the South all along
is found in the results of a Texas survey: The clamorous agita-
tion for racially integrated schools does not come from the rank-
and-file Negro population.
One of that state's leading newspapers has determined by
examining the record in Texas that "Given a choice, Texas Negroes
show a preference for segregated schools." -
Richard M. Morehead, a staff writer of the Dallas Morn-
ing News, sums up in those words the feeling that prevails among
Negroes in the Lone Star State.
This feeling not only is widely reflected in actual school
experience over the state, but "several school boards, in fact, have
been requested by Negroes not to abolish the separate schools."
Examples of the preference of Negroes for segregated
schools, as cited by Mr. Morehead in :his article in the Dallas
"Amarillo abolished segregation in 1956. The district has
22,203 white and 1,229 Negro pupils. One Negro, a part-time
student, chose to attend high school with white pupils. All
others enrolled in separate schools reported Superintendent Bob
Superintendent Ashworth explained that "thus far we have
had no Negroes enrolled full-time in a previously all-white school,
or vice versa."
In Austin, the state capital, the "four high schools have
been desegregated for three years. This fall, the policy was
extended to the ninth grade in junior high. Approximately 1,100
Negroes are eligible to attend class in Austin with white students.
Thirty-one chose to do so. The others attend all-Negro classes."
And in Lubbock, which has a public school enrollment of
20,888 white and 2,111 Negro pupils, "six Negroes are attending
class with 1,103 whites. The other 2,105 Negroes are segregated
by choice, reported Superintendent Nat Williams."
The record shows, Mr. Morehead points out, that "in many
cases, Negroes pass up a nearby white school to study with their
own race in a more distant school." He observes, too, that "Ne-
groes frequently object to losing separate schools."
This widely demonstrated preference of Texas Negroes for
racially segregated schools is a manifestation of good sense on
their part. It proves what is true regionally in the South that
the school integration demand comes not from the Negro people
generally but from agitating radicals and their' dupes in both the
white and Negro races.
These radical agitators and their dupes are a menace to
amicable, sensible relations between the races and consequently
a menace to the national interest. As such, they deserve the sever-
est condemnation by both the white people and the Negro peo-
ple of this country.
