Kiwanis Club Tuesday
The Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club
had a double-barreled program at
their meeting Tuesday.
The first part of the program
was presented by-visiting Lt. Gov.
Bill Farrior of Chipley. Farrior
spoke briefly of the meaning of
Kiwanis. He 'began by praising the
local club on their work in the
Kiwanis grading system for the past
year. He declared that Kiwanis
was nothing -more than religion in
the business-man's language. He
listed the aims of Kiwanis and de-
clared that they went right along
with the teachings of Christ.
Farrior declared, "A man who
follows the teachings of Christ.
will mnafke eo04l Kiwanian".
In the second phase of the pro-
gram, Bob Barter of ,Tyndall Air
Force Base presented a movie of
the SAGE operation in the United
States. The movie dealt with the
use of electronic computers in the
defense of the-nation. The movies"
showed just how the computers
were used in the detection and de-
struction of any enemy invader.

ward Smith of -the Key Club, Dr.u
Hall, St. Joe High School, Jim
Moore, Port St. Joe, W. F. Firth,

By CECIL G. COSTIN, Jr.
We will be entering the third
week of the session Wednesday and
much of the important legislation
has been introduced. Floor battles
on controversial legislation have.
not developed as yet since most of
the bills have yet to come out of ihe
I believe that two of the bills
which I have introduced to data
are of vital importance to the
County and State. One of these
bills gives more control back to
the county commissioners as to ex-
penditure of secondary road ,funds.
The State Road Department has the
use of the primary road fund for a
statewide highway program, but has
more and more in the past few
years tried to gain control of the
secondary road fund, which has
been 'allocated by constitutional
amnedment to the counties,_pr for
expenditure in the counties. It is
my belief that the county commis-
sioners of each county rather than,
the State Road Departme't are
closer to the people, and therefore,
should determine the roads or
streets on which this money 'should
be spent. For this reason, I have
introduced a bill which will have
this effect, and although it will be
fought by the State Road Depart-
ment, I believe that it will pass.-
Another bill I introduced has the
effect of removing some of the
constitutional powers of the Game
and Fresh Water.Fish Commission.
At present this commission is ac--
countable to no one except the Gov-
ernor, and the appointed memb rs
of this commission have, le'ia rtvte
power, in that they make all laws,
rules, and regulations governing
their operations. I bleieve this.-is
inconsistent with democratic prin-
ciples. Persons who have the poW-
er to make laws should be elected
by the people. I feel ,however, that
there should be uniformity of law's
in the state on bag limits, open and
closed seasons,.etc.--ti..- se, con-
fusion would result when sportsf-
men traveled from one county to
another, but I feel that the Legis-
lature should have complete budget
control over this agency and there-
fore could supervise their opera-
tions. At present the Legislature
does not have any budget control
whatsoever over this commission.
This commission is the only agency
in the 'State with these vast powers
and which is not subject to the su-
pervision of the body duly elected
by the people.
One bill which I will propose is
'extremely important to the citizens
of Gulf County. This bill is to pro-
vide an Industrial Development
Commission for Gulf County to ab-
.sorb the powers,, duties and respon-
sibilities of certain boards presently
existing in the county. The purpose
of this proposed bill is to attract
industry into the county and to ad-
vertise the natural resources avail-
able in Gulf County to industry.
I feel that we are losing a lot of
industry moving to the South be-
cause we have no agency or cQm-.
mission in the county to devote its
full time to that purpose. Statistics
show that approximately 3,000 per-
sons move to Florida each week,
If we could attract just a few of
these families, it would be .well
worth our while to spend money to
do so. Many of the larger counties
are utilizing -their financial resour-
ces to attract industry to their
counties. This has paid manifold
dividends to these counties and I
am sure would do so for Gulf Coun--
ty if we had the proper agency for
'this purpose. We would have to
spend money to do this and have
a capable man in the position of
executive director whose 'duties
would be to contact all industry in-
terested in moving South and en-
courage its location in Gulf County.
He would work in close coopera-
tion with the county commissioners
and city commissioners in our
county ,and the Chamber of Com-
merce and other interested groups.
The policy ..making body- of this
proposed commission would come
from lahor, management, business-
men, the city commissions of the
county and from the county com-
mission. The details have not been
Hospital Plans June 1
Architect Norman Gross of Pan-
ama City announced this week that
plans for the.new addition to the
Municipal Hospital should be com-
pleted on or about June 1. After
this date, bids for construction of
the addition will be advertised.
Gross was commissioned by the
City Commission to 'draw plans for
the half million dollar addition to
present facilities which will make
Port St. Joe's Municipal Hospital
more than twice its present size.
Plans for increasing the institu-
tion 'to 43 bed capacity with two
operating rooms, two delivery
rooms and the most modern up-to-
date facilities for caring for the
citizens of Port St. Joe.
The Chamber of Commerce re-
ported this week that a number of
new residents are moving into Port
St. Joe and that more are expected
in the near future. The Chamber
has a housing committee that is
contacted frequently by people
seeking rental property. The com-
mittee is anxious to help in every
way possible to supply this infor-
mation. To do this, they wish to
receive notification .from property
owners of property for rent and a
small description of the property.
The Chamber also urges that
property owners -make their rental
property as attractive as possible to
welcome new residents to Port St.

Mrs. Agnes M. Sanford Will Bring
Mission To St. James' Episcopal Church
A healing mission will be held
at St. James Episcopal Church at
8:00 p.m. April 29 through May 2.
This mission will be conducted by
Mrs. Agnes M. Sanford, who does
not claim to be a "healer", but one
who has learned some power In
prayer and desires .to teach it and
pass it on to others. The desire of
Mrs. Sanford is to help people find
God, the only healer.
Mrs. Sanford is the author of
several books, among which are,
"The Healing Light" and "Behold
Your God". She was born in China,
the daughter of Southern Presby-
terian missionaries, and was edu-
cated at Peace Institute, Raleigh,
N. C., and Agnes Scott College, De-
catur, Georgia. She returned to
China and taught at St. Mary's
School, Shanghai, and then in Soo-
chow Academy. While in Soochow,
she met and married the Rev. Ed-
gar L. Sanford, a clergyman of the
Episcopal Church. Mrs. Sanford is
a devout churchwoman, and she is
convinced that no special cult is
needed for the application of spirit-
ual healing to physical or other
problems, and that the church and
the Christian faith contain all that
is necessary to reach God and His
divine grace. She has come to
know the power of God to heal and
direct life, through her own ex-
The Mission is not just for the
sick, but for all who would live
well in the spirit and faith of Je-
sus Christ. It complements the best
medical advice which each may re-
ceive. Never have more people been
in need of inner,.strength for body,
mind and spirit than today.
The public is invited to all of
these services, regardless of church
Following cach service, everyone
is cordially invited to a coffee hour

On Wednesday, April 29, Mrs.

A Teacher's View Point On The P.-T. A.
For the most effective develop-
ment of children there must be
close cooperation between home
and school. Parents must under-
stand what the schools are trying
to do, and teachers must under-
stand the problems of parents. To
bring about this understanding and
oopnnration is one of the chief aims
The associations grew out of the
great interest in child development
and education that arose late in
the 19th century. It was realized, as
never before ,that .much of a per-
son's success or failure in adult
life depends on what he does: in
No6 other people ever demanded
public in the world, also has the adapted adults-to help them make

of today are preparing students for
college an somehow manage to
teach domestic economy, driving,
shop, current events, world history
and .typewriting at the same time.
Therefore, they're acquiring the
"know how" and the "know why".
cf the many associations of par- so much of education as have the We as -teachers- want to, through

become free, independent, effective
men and women.
I think, that teachers of today are
also cooperating with parents in,
teaching responsibility so that the
child does not expect reward with-
out quest, wages without work, a
master's prestige without a mas-
ter's skill, national security with-
out individual sacrifice. In other
words, preparing him to succeed in

Therefore, thb PTA is the best
medium of this close contact be-
tween the parent, child and teach-
er. In the PTA the parents and
teachers can study together some
aspects ;of the growth of boys and
girls, and the parents can under-
stand how 'the school is trying to
facilitate this growth.
We as teachers are trying to help
:the children to meet and solve
their problems of home, school and
community living. To develop abil-
ity 'to live and work democratically
with others in individual, family
and group relationship. To develop
a feeling of being a, part of an
ever-widening community, and to
see that people need to work toge-
ther for the common good in order
to build a better life.

mTHa STAR. Pert St. Joe, Pla. THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1959
Congressman Bob Sikes (the He-Coon himself) has come
up with an idea for a bill that will put us one more step toward
Socialism if it is passed. The He-Coon has let it be known that
he will sponsor a bill putting the Federal Government (the Uncle
with the empty-but-at-the-same-time-bulging pocketbook) right
smack in the middle of the recreation business.
The He-Coon has said he will introduce a bill to provide
Government spending on recreation. All we need now is a bill
to provide the money to pay up everybody's debts and we will
Needless to say, we are against this. In our humble opin-
ion the Uncle is trying to stretch his dimes too thin now and the
He-Coon and his compatriots up on Capitol Hill need t0 begin
thinking of bills to get the Government out of some of these
frills in place of. in the Socialism mud even deeper.
And then, think of the corruptness that can come with a
bill such as this. Every Congressman is working 27 hours a day
now, trying to thinking of "necessary" Federal work that needs
to be done in his district -- often with the results far different
from the stated purpose. The chief of these spending sins is the"
so-called need for "power dams" which provide nothing more
than token power generation -- but acres and acres of nice
recreational lakes (Jim Woodruff Dam excepted). While we ex-
cept Jim Woodruff Dam at Chattahoochee from this category, we
do come face to face with the fact that its power production is
practically negligible in relationship to the expense of the struc-
ture. But it was built for, primarily, navigational purposes and
so justifies its existence.
But there are so many cases where Government money
has been wasted and we are against making more ways to waste
the public's tax money. -
We appreciate the Congressman's concern over the state
of the nation's recreation potential, but, should he devote a
.smidgen of effort to seeing if the tax burden couldn't be lightened
a farthing or too, we might be able to afford a little -bit of ric&
reaction, since after all, with the automobile, airplane, trains and
all, should we have the cash, the recreation is accessible.
** Rushing around smartly is no proof of accomplishing much.

-Congressman Bob Sikes this

would make recreational activities

*hunting, -ishing, boating and other

use of these projects.
In introducing his "Recreation"
