"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
by We*t.6EY R. RAMSEY
I'm like Mr. Sandspurs in the
Panama City News-after a session
at the Chamber of Commerce din
naer Monday, I'm firmly convinced
that Port St. Joe will indeed be a
"land of milk and honey".
These boys, George Tapper and
TPom Coldewey, do such a good jot
of selling the area to those who
know it best, we think It would be
a good idea Ift they were a commit-
tee of two to try and attract new
industry to this area. They talk a
And, we believe them.
We know two or three of you saw
where we are now the correspon-
'dent for the Panama City News and
Herald. We know you know, be-
cause one or two have mentioned it
That little article stating such in
last Thursday's News sort of took
me aback. Calling me a "veteran"
newspaperman. I couldn't figure
out just why I felt so stiff and sore
in the mornings lately-until I read
that "veteran" stuff.
Comes the rude awakening.
Should 32 be considered old?
But, when you come right down
to it, 17 years in this business
would place one pretty close to the
"veteran" class wouldn't it.
We have had dreams about when
The Star would be a big paper and
we could get on an eight hour a
day schedule till we started deal-
ing with Mike DarTey over at the
News and Herald. His working
hours are from 8 ea.. until 5 p.m.-
yet we catch him over there at all
hours of the night still plugging
So we had a pin stuck in that
Frank McDonald, down at the
West Florida Gas Company will
eventually get around to you with
his story of an eight pou-td bass.
Let me tell how that bass came to
weigh eight pounds.
Frank caught the bass and froze
him in a block of ice. Then he
weighed ice, fish and all to get his
eight pound bass.

up his stories with two witnesses,
Jenke St. Clair and Dink Thurs-

fered the same belly-laugh that you
Oyster Love Life
Jimmy McNeill told the Rotary
Club a little of the oyster industry
at the club's regular meeting last
Thursday noon. McNeill declared
that the seafood business was one
of the oldest in Gulf County and
that the seafood industry ranks
seventh in the State of Florida in
McNeill said that this area had
the best oyster producing beds in
the whole world, having a faster
growing rate than its nearest com-
petitor Chesapeake Bay. McNeill de-
clared that oysters would grow as
much in five weeks in Apalachicola
Bay as they would in a full year in
McNeill said that the oyster
changes sex every year. He said
the female oyster lays up to 100
million ggs at a time. The eggs
will float in the water until they
hatch, then the baby oyster crawls
along the bottom until it finds a
piece of debris to cling to, then
attaches itself and begins to grow.
MicNeill said that the oyster will
feed up to 20 hours a day and will
pump 75 to 100 gallons of water
through itself to take its food in
Most oystering in this area is by
the tong method, a rake-like affair
used to rake the oysters up from
the .bottom. The oystering boats
are usually skiffs with a crew of
one. Oystermen are paid by the
number of oysters caught.
McNeill said that often the oys-
terman and his wife make a. team-
the man catching the oysters and
the wife shucking them. A good
oyster shucker can shell from eight
to ten gallons a day. He said that
recently one woman shucked 19
gallons in one day.
McNeill said that while most oys-

Trooper Forced To
Shoot; Kills Man
Travis Aplin, local Highway 'Patrol trooper shot and killed a
21-year-old Vernon man late Saturday night in a pistol duel when
the man resister Aplin's attempts to arrest him.
Earl Gainey died in the Municipal Hospital around 1:00 a.m.
Sunday morning from bullet wounds he received in an exchange
of shots with Trooper Aplin.
Aplin gave the following account of the incident:
A 1955 model 4-door Ford sedan
driven by Harlan Harris, 18, of Ver-
non, and carrying Gainey and two
juvenile boys was stopped by Aplin
on US 98 near the ro ,.1 leading to
the U. S. Coast Guard lighthouse
at Beacon Hill, about 12 p.m.
Aplin told Harris he was spaed-
ing and asked for his driver's li-
cense. Harris could not find his ii-
cense and Aplin told him he would
have to go to jail and make bond.
Ganey, owner of the car and oc-
cupying the front seat *.1. H .-ni.
begin to curse Aplin.
The tIooper told Gainey several
times to be quiet and finally or-
dered him to get out'of the car
as he, too, was under arrest. As
Aplin went around the car to get
Gainey out, Gainey closed the win-
dows and locked the doors.
Aplin shined his flashlight in
PGainey's side of the car and saw
Gainey and Harris scuffling on the
front seat. Gainey finally succeeded
in securing a pistol that was hid-
den in the glove compartment. Har-
ris urged Gainey to put the gun
down. Gainey raised up with the
gun and Aplin drew and cocked
his -own pistol. Aplin told Gainey
he was, covered and to drop the
gun. Gainey whirled and fired at
Aplin point-blank, missing him by
scant inches. Gainey's bullet went
through the rear. door window. Ap-
lin fired hitting Gainey in the chest,
dropped to the ground and began
crawling to his own auto to radio
for help. When the shooting began
the passengers in the car got out
*and began running.
As Aplin crawled to the back of
the car, Gainey fired at him three
times through the back window of
the vehicle, then opened the door
and got out -of the vehicle. As he
emerged from the car, Aplin fired
again hitting Gainey in the hand.
'Gainey then fell down and Aplin
unarmed him. Aplin's only hurt was
Sa shred of lead in his lip, appar-
,ently from a shattered bullet.
A Comforter Funeral Home am-
bulance took Gainey -to the Port
t. Joe Municipal Hospital where
he was pronounced dead.
Gainey had been jailed earlier in
the evening by city police when he
became intoxicated and making
trouble at the Vernon-Port St. Joe
,basketball game. He was in -the lo-
cal jail for about two hours, and
was released at about 11 p.m. in the
custody of his boy passengers who
!had accompanied him here to the
-game. Local officers Kelly and
Leece, who arrested Gainey at the
High School Gymnasium, said that

Talk Growing Concerning Natura Gas Supply For
Port St. Joe; Michigan Chemical Promised Gas
Natural gas may come to Port St. Joe and
:Mexico Beach by the last quarter of 1959 or the
first quarter of 1960.
H. Mack Lewis, president of West Florida
Gas Co., which holds the fli ucli for distribution
of natural gas in Panama City, said the Michigan
Chemical Co., has been promised gas for its plant
in Port St. Joe by the iHloum'ja Texas Gas and
It has not yet been decided, Lewis said, just
how this gas will be piped to the plant.
The Texas gas company is laying a line from
the Texas oil fields through the state of Florida.
Should it be agreed upon for West Florida Gas
to extend its Tyndall AFB line on to Port St. Joe,
service would be made available along the way
tc Mexico Beach, Lewis said.
An alternative would be to run a separate
spur line from Youngstown cross-country to the
chemical plant at Port St. Joe, t

PREVENT TRAGIC ACCIDENTS
More children die from accidents
than from the combined totA of the
seven leading diseases.
Deaths from poliomyelitis, cancer,
leukemia, tuberculosis and heart dis-
ease are relatively few as compared
with the number of deaths from ac-
ijdent. With the exception of motor
ye. hicle fatalities, the type of fatal
accident to a child is related to his ._---
age. From birth to one year, for in- -**
ee 0 stance, burns and conflagration are
the most common cause of death-
IRTS next to automobile accidents. From: .
one to two years of age, drowning
juBLE is second-and poisoning is third in
BLE cause of accidental death.
Deaths from poisoning increase
tragically during the second year of
life. It is at this age that accident

Reading Age Should Begin Earlier
Concerning the matter of "Why Johnny can't read," you will
be provided with as many explanations as there are editorial writ-
ers and those who sit in judgment on the passing scene.
One sure reason that there is a problem with our young's
reading is that it is not done early enough, and one person who
is helping to do something about the subject is Mrs. Mildred
Lawrence, a Floridian who is author of children's books and who
spoke before the Duval County Library Association recently.
How can you expect children who grow up on television
fare primarily to become suddenly enthralled with reading when
it is thrust upon them at school? If, as psychologists tell us, the
first seven or eight years in a child's life are important in his
development of traits that he will carry through life, then it seems
reasonable to insist that the twig be bent in the direction of
There are such excellent books today for the young on both
fanciful and factual subjects. What father after a hard day at
the office, or a mother for a respite during a frustrating day around
the house, shouldn't delight in the escapades of a "Tiger in a
Cherry Tree" or respond to the innocent truths of "A Friend
Is Someone Who Likes You?"
It's particularly good to have in our midst authors like Mrs.
Lawrence, who writes of familiar matters such as "Sand in Her
Shoes." More Florida authors are needed to introduce the young-
sters to the beauty and wonders at hand.
Maybe the point of bedtime literature is "to make parents
sleep safe and secure," but that's not all of it, as can be noticed
in the child's eager inquiry, "Any new books from the library,
daddy?," or to see him grow up as a young boy and man with
books as constant companions. Florida Times-Union
Our Views On the Matter
While we agree with the T-U that children of today cannot
read as they should, we do not agree that television is causing
this. Before television, children and adults alike listened to the
same programs on the radio at night or went to a movie.
Television, in our opinion, teaches children to read just as
they are taught to read in the schools by associating words with
pictures and with announcers repeating the words that are flash-
ed on the TV screen. Some educators swear up -and down that
the easiest way. to teach Johnnie to read is with word-picture
association. We also disagree with this with no disrespect to the
The inability of children to read is blamed'on television where
children, in theory, should be learning to read just as they are
taught in the classroom.
We believe that a child's inability to read, is his inability to
spell and his inability to tell an "a" from an "r" and call the let-
ters of the alphabet by name in thp early grades of school. In
other words, if a pupil learns to read by letters, he also learns
to spell at the same time. If a pupil knows the name of the let-
ter, through the process of everyday use he learns the sound of
the letters, and if he knows the sounds the letters make, along
with the name of the letter, 'he can spell. And if he can spell he
By the same token, one of the best bandmasters we ever had
at Port St. Joe (even though he was part time back during the
war) would stress to his band students not to learn to play by
associating a note with a position on a horn. "Learn the name of
the note then the position" he would say. He had strong argu-
ment in the way his different pupils played to back up his argu-
Knowing the name of a part, a chemical, a weight, a measure
or a letter is all equally important, in our sight, to getting a job
One educator predicts that the alphabet as we now know
it will soon vanish with the present way of teaching children to
read and will be eventually replaced with a picture language
similar to ancient hyroglyphics.
We agree with those thoughts. We think Johnny should be
told that "man" is spelled M-A-N and not told "this word is the
same thing as this picture associate it".
Maybe it is easier to teach this way. But we are not looking
for the easiest way out we are looking for permanent and
Many people have learned the hard way, that the easiest and
cheapest way is not always the best way.

Gracious living is something we all want to achieve, but what ,
we sometimes forget is that this gracious living is arrived 'at not
by doing or having any one specific thing. It is a matter of dozens
and dozens of little things, all bound up to make one simple but
elegant way of life. Etiquette plays a big part in gracious living
and the six basic candy etiquette rules below are "musts" if you
'care about doing things the right way-and who 'doesn't?
1. When guests bring a box of candy, it should be opened and
offered to those present even if there is a box already open.
2. When selecting a piece from a candy dish or from the
original box, always take the candy with its paper frill.
3. It is not polite, to hesitate in selecting a piece of candy, nor'
should it be touched or squeezed and then returned to the box.
4. Servw- assorted chocolates in their paper frills; they are
easier to handle and more festive-looking.
5. 'At a formal dinner party, candy dishes are brougzst from-
the pantry and offered to guests even though candy dishes may
be part of the table decoration.
6: At informal meals, candy dishes may' serve as table deco-
ration during the meal and may be taken from the table, served
i the usual way, and returned to the dining table.

Of Kiwanis Talk

Carbonneau is home on leave for
a period from his job.
The speaker impressed upon the
Club that Turkey was probably one
of the most vulnerable countries In
world, .being strictly anti-Commun-
ist and being surrounded on three
sides by Communist and Commun-
ist sympathizing nations. In this
position', Turkey is' one of the first
of the NATO nations to offer the
U. S. missile sites. The whole coun-

Carbonneau said that over the
years the U.S. has given two billion
dollars in aid to this country. He
reported that the country had spent
the money very wisely with very
little waste going on. As an exam-
ple of the Turks austerity program,
Carbonneau said that they have
imported nothing they didn't abso-
lutely need for the past several,
years. He said that even coffee;
which the Turks are famous for, is
a luxury that is done without, be-
cause the country needs money for
other things. He said that all altos
and trucks in the country are of
pre-war vintage because the coun-
try feels it can -make do with what
Carbonneau said that much of
the nation is still primitive with
wooden plows and bullock farm
power still common. He said school-
ing is being intensified, but much
illiteracy still is in evidence. Car-
bonneau said that the Turks love
Americans and there is no "Yan-
kee -go "home" movement in the
"The Turks are good, brave fight-
ers", Carbonneau said, "and their
entire energy is being directed to
bettering their nation and making
it very costly for Russia to try any-
thing with them".
