ETAOIN SHRDLU
by Wklt.EY R. RAMSEY


The Star is'-getting on up -into
age now, and the old rag realizes
it.
Some of you are familiar with
how these birthdays will sneak uP
on you before you know i'. They
just seem to come in by the back
- door 'and alap another 365 days "n
to you before you know it.
The same thing happened to The
Star last week.
Another year rolled by, making
the rag 23 years old and we just
didn't realize it until we had set
the folio number just before going
to press last Wednesday afternoon.
Newspapers are sort of like dogs,
youw know. They say one year of a
dog's age equals about eight years
of a human's age. Newspapers are
the same. A 50 year old ,newspaper
-is getting to where it is considered
old. How many of you, -at 50, con-
sider yourselves old. There! You
see? Newspapers age faster than
folks.
But, we didn't let the occasion
go lacking, we sang "Happy Birth-
Sday" to The Star while we rattled
an accompanimen-t on the keys of
the Linotype.

Seems. everody is talking about
football, so wlt shouldn't we?
Port St. Joe let Marlanna know
they were in town last Friday. Sta-
tistics show that the Sharks were
sadly lacking against Marianna in
the '.game, but the score shows that
the Sharks took advantage of ev-
ery available break in the game.
'We felt more than proud of our
football field and .our band after
,w&e viewad- what a much bigger
.school has to offer. In these de-
partments. But one thing we didn't
quite get understood while we were
in Marianna. Did ahy of you happen
to find out just who kept the offIl-
cial time at the ball game?
The scoreboard 'time asemed to
be wrong.

Coach Oraig handed .us this lit-
tle piece and we thought you might
like .to sharp it with us.
WHY BOYS PLAY FOOTBALL
Nevertheless, football has flour-
ished-in our, high schools for dec-
ades and probably will continue to
attract young boys like a magnet.
There must be a reason fIr it. Or
many reasons.
Some of them may have, been
cited by Billy Crawford, a Vander-
bilt' freshman halfback originally
from Valdosta, Ga., when he wrote:
"I play because-of the thrill one
feels in victory and the bitterness
which accompanies defeat ..
"Because of the chance to scrap
for something one believes in .
"The opportunity ot eatfsfy a per-
son's most severe critic-himself. .
"The right tto set one's mark high
and then -claw to obtain 'that ,per-
sonaj goal...
"That. independent sensation
Which only an athlete can feel be-
fore a kick-off, a starter's gun, or
a tip-off, when Mom and Dad are
in the stands. Coach is on the.
bench, God is in heaven, and every-
one on the field is alone .
"The privilege -to consider one-
self important because everyone in.
athletics is important .
"One's dreams which.are shared
only with his own heart .
"The companionship of men who
work with boys and of boys who
fight as men ...
"The chance one has :to mingle
with people who are either more
or less fortunate 'than he and to
feel neither superior nor i-ferior
toward these people .
"Finally, either the disappoi.n-
ment or ,the happiness which comes
from knowing that one has received
from athletics evactly what he him-
self iput into them; in the river-of
values which a person can receive
from athletics, these are but a few
drops."
If anyone-let alone a freshman
halfback-ever has etched an ath-
lete's Innermost thoughts on paper
more effectively-he doesn't read-
ily come ,to mind.

City Sets Millage at 10.5;



Valuation Up 2 Million


Port St. Joe's City Commission. tentatively set
,the budget for the new year at their regular meet-'
ing Tuesday night. The new- budget' calls fqr an ex-
penditure of $186,153.87 over the next fiscal year.
This is an increase of $18,479.44 over last year's-
budget, but the millage will remain the same-10.5.
The increase in income will be made possible by
the fact that increases in property valuations by the
sum of nearly two million dollars have gone on the
city tax rolls. .
The City business is no different from other
things-every item; practically, hass taken an in-
crease in need for money. This increase has been
provided by 'the increased property-valuation and
the fact that the City paid up the old harbor bonds
last year, thus relieving .them of an expenditure of
around $9,0000.00 each year. These bonds were sold
back in 1936 when ,the -paper company came to Port
St. Joe and'needed a harbor.
'Of the various: items in the city budget, only
three items were reduced. These were: a reduction
in the-scavenger department of. $600.00, a reduction
in .Social Security -nsurance oft $200.00 '(this item
had been :over-estimated last year) and a reduction
in the Hospital Rivenue Bonds of $4,000.00
Every other item lists an increase of from $50.00
to $23,000.00. The $50.0.0 increase is In the ,fire ,de-
partment and the $23,000.00 increase Is in the con-,
tingencie fund. 'This fund has received more .money
to be used as sort of: a savings account. by 'the City.
.The fund will provide emergency money tfor any of


the City funds which might run short during the
year due to uhftrseen circumstances. This is to keep
the City's credit on.a sound basis and ,to Insure
that all departments will be able to meet their obli-
gations for the -coming 'year. The next highest in-
crease is $1,560.00 in .the Administrative Expense
-fund with other increasess graduating downward.
On the income .side of the ledger, anticipated
revenue from practically every source showed an.
estimated increase. Property ,tax revenue is expect-
ed to increase from $66,506 for last year to $92,255
this year. Fines and Forfeitures are expected to
bring in an additional $1,000.00. Garbage collection
fees are expected to climb_ some $2,000 and every
other item slated for a slight increase. One source
of revenue is counted on ior a $4,000 loss, however.
Cigarette tax income is dropping every month. ac-
cording to City-Auditor and Clerk R. W. Henderson,
and he expects the smoke tax take to .be $4,000
less this year. This is in spite of a growth of popula-
tion in the City. .- :
'The whole budget come.,s to $136,705.00 in the
operational budget as compared to $108,026.00 last
year. .
Bonded indebtedness of the City makes. ip for
the remainder'of the $186,153.87 budget. These funds
include $25,000 for the Hospital Revenue Bond Fund;
$8,648.87 for- the Special Sinking Fund for Refunding
bonds -of 1950 and $15,Su0.00 for .payment on the City
Hall.

St. Joe Paper Co.


Asks For Setting of


Line In St. Joe Bay


Max W. Kilbourn, representing the St. Joe Paper Company
asked the City Commission for tentative approval of a bulkhead
line to be established in St. Joseph Bay Tuesday night, at the regu-
lar meeting of the Commission. The bulkhead line would run
from the Southeast Terminals oil dock bulkhead to the Simmons
Bayou area. The petition to the City was concerned only with
that portion of the proposed bulkhead line being in the City
Limits.- -


Proposed Re-apportionment "Most

Fair Method" Says Rep. Costin


This is the first of a series of
articles to be printed in The Star
on the subject of re-apportion-
ment of, representation in the
Florida House and Senate In: or-,
der to familiarize the people of
this county with the proposed
constitutional amendment to be
voted on November 3, 1959.
In an Itierview with Repraeenta-
itive Cecil G. Costin for 'further In-
formption, concerning thi s amend-
ment, he explained the difference
between the present, constitutional
provisionsi for re-.rportioament
which .have been in effect slucee
1925, and -the proposed amendment
to be, voted -on November 3. The
present amendment provides for
representation Iin both the House
and Senate based upon ,population,
with no limitation upon the num-"
ber ,o,f .counties that can be grouped
in any one Senatorial District. The
proposed amendment ,provides that
representation in the House will
continue to be based upon popula-
tion, but that the Senate formula'
provides for fairness and -equity
among districts based not only
upon population but on "geogra-
phic area" and "economic affinity"
with a limitation of not more than
-three counties in any one Senator-
ial District. Costin stated that his,
is a much fairer :method of re-ap-
portioning the Senate siice .itwill
insure -that no one thickly .populat-
ed area of 'the state will -gain con-
,trol of the legislative branch of the
government. Although 'an area as
populated as the Southeast coast
of Florida may elect a governor or
!other cabinet officials and control
-the executive branch, it would not
be -to the 'best interest ,of the state


that such an area also control .the
legislative branch.
.Costin stated 'that a certain at-
torney in Miami was organizing ,op-
position to -the proposed amendment
because it -failed .to provide a means
whereby the populous areas of Flor-
ida could ,;in control .of both'Hou-
ses, of the legislature in -the future.
Costin. stated that he did not i thn,i
this oppL.3"i.;:,U would ,be successful
in defeating -the amendment be-
cause' -the- people of Florida still
wai.nt a conservative legislature anai
h-i-tor:, h.,; shO,,wn that llie rural
areas 1of Florida havi prL.du,':--
imore Lol.ieri .'tisrn in go:-.verrnment
than that of the ,populated areas
along,Li. e southeastst coast.
Citin iltaf d that MLIMatL.8 ..


Kilbourn explained to the Com-
mission that the establishment of
the bulkhead was 'only a legal step
by which the Board would establish
a line in St. Joseph Bay beyond
which no building or till activity
,could take. place. Kilbourn said
that ithe companies he represents
ask for bulkhead lines to be estab-
lished on the outside 'edge of what
is locally known as the mud flats.
The bulkhead line will extend for
about an average of 375 feet from
the prseent shore line.
Kilbourn 'asked the City 'to ten-
tai;vely approve the bulkhead liner
and .then call a ,public 'hearing .on,
thi establishment of the line. The
public hearing was set for Novem-
ber 10 at theLCity Hall Commission
Chambers.-
Kilbourn pointed out to the' Com-
miicslon that no action would be
,taken at this time beyond the sett-
ing of the bulkhead line. He said
the City's decision would merely
-c l-t.d hulkh'-ad line. Any sale of
the laud between tbodtide Une and


.the legislative Reference Bureau of' the established bulkhead would
the cost..tc t -the state in dealing require several hearings and would
with this subject of re-.-pportion- be handled through the Internal Im-
ment since 1955 has been approxi- -provement Board of the State of
mately one million dollars and -that Florida.


tjothing wa accomplished until tlc-
proposed amendment wa-s adopted
-during the 1959 session. He said.


-that the people of 'Florida should.
not be misled by those who are us-
ing -the re-ap-portionment amend-
ment -as a political football in the
forthcoming governor's race to, at-
tract votes along. the Southeastern
coast of Florida, where approxi-
mately, one half of .the .votes -of
Florida are cast, but that this
amendment should be adopted so
that -the legislature .of Florida could
devote .their time in .the future to
other .pressing 'problems of -state
-government.
S o TO. CHURCH SUNDAY

The City granted approval of the
requisition for establishingg the line
pending a public, hearing.
Notice of the public hearing in
this -matter is being published' in
-this week's issue of The Star.

WHAT









bigger and Better Vlngs Bonds


President Eisenhower wants the country to know that
United States Savings Bonds n&w pay 3% per cent interest.
He posed for this photo just after signing into law a Con-
gressional bill permitting the Treasury to increase interest
rates on Series E and H Savings Bonds from the old 31/4 rate.
This enlargement of a $100 bond is symbolic, of;course, but
It carries the message that Savings Bonds are "Now biggerF
and better." The new rate was made retroactiveto June 1.
In addition, the 40 million persons already holding Savings
Bonds benefit by the legislation. The interest rate on out-
standing bonds has been increased by at least one-half
per cent from now on if held to maturity. "To my mind,"'
the President said, "there is no better way of saving, no
more effective way of strengthening our power for peace,
than to own United States-Savings Bonds. To, buy these
bonds is to express faith in America. it helps provide the
economic strength in both our Governme.t and in individual
families on which our freedom depends. -I hope that the
making of both old and new Savings Bonds even more at- -
tractive will serve as a renewed invitation to every citizen
to buy and hold these 'Shares in America'."


NEA Makes


Juvenile Study
The National Education Associa-
tion -said this week a national stu-
dy -showed that some schools uon-
wittingly are encouraging young-
sters to become Juvenile delin-
quents.
The study said -the schools in
:question have such restrictive stu-
dy courses ,that less-talented chil-
dren are denied "a measure of suc-
cess" in -the classroom.
"This .can spark delinquent bhe-
'avior by spontaneous combustion",
it said.
*On -the other hand, the report
said, "confining the -more able stu-
dent to a dull an dtlow learning
routine" can -have similar results.
The conclusions were based on
a one-year study involving hundreds
of teachers and- other school ex-
perts. The .project was -under the
direction of William C. Kvaraceus,.
a Boston University psychologist.
The report said ,unsuccessful or
frustrated pupils often feel the oniy .
way .to prove'to other youngsters
that he is hot as ,dumb a.s his re-
port card suggests isa to show .them
ha-is good at something--"'even tho
it be stealing, breaking windows
or carrying on gang warfare."
The school program which over-
emiphasizes "a -narrow one track"
:academic curriculum for the col-
lege bound, it said, actually may
make -second and third-class citi-
zens of the less academically-in-
clined students and may precipitate
. ..delinquent behavior among
them." .
Early drop-outs, frequently a fore-
runner to delinquency, the report
said, are of-ten due to the failure

Vote Machine Cost Not Justified

As you noticed in last week's issue of The Star, the story on
the front page of The Star differed somewhat insofar as facts go
with the editorial we printed on voting machines. Our editorial
said the machines would cost some $3,000 each and the number of
machines needed was uncertain. -However, as we stated, we' were
hunting information. Between the time the editorial was written
and the front page printed, more information was made available.
The correct information insofar, as cost of the machines and the
estimated number needed was reproduced in the front page story
concerning the referendum for the approval or rejection of voting
machines by the people.
The. information received helped us to arrive at a decision as
to whether we would oppose or endorse the purchase of voting
- machines at this time.
We are going to be forced to oppose on the grounds of cost.
While we approve of the practice of using voting machines
and think that would be a nice thing for Gulf County to have, we
just don't see how the County can justify the cost at this time.
As was pointed out, the machines will cost around $2,000.00 each
and the County will need at least six machines. This makes an
expenditure of $12,000.00. The machines would save the county
approximately $350.00 every two years in election .expenses. This
figures out-a period of 68 years, before the machines would save
their cost. Now we will hasten to say that there will never be a
time when voting machines will amortize their -cost in savings
over a short period of time. But we do believe the time will come
when we need the voting machines. '
We don't believe the count)' is in financial condition right
now to shell out $12,000 for something we can do without for a
while longer. The county is by no- means in the red but to stay
in the black requires quite a few dollars in taxes. Recent articles
in the newspapers make it plain that city, county and state taxes
are rising and taking a larger.hunk out of the tax-payer's pocket-
book. We believe that it would serve Gulf's purpose better to
keep our county government .as .economic mininded as possible,
especially so, since the county is straining every effort to attract
more industry and more jobs to this area.
And then, too, the grown-ups of the county look forward to
election day and the excitement of the count after the balloting
is over. While many of the nostalgic practices; of years gone by
have given way to progress, we can't 'help but believe that the
citizens of Gulf County would enjoy having the excitement of
w.e iching the vote count for a while longer.



Amendment Passage Up To You

Representative Cecil G. Costin, Jr., assures us that all the
State Senators and Representatives have pledged to work for
the passage of the proposed Constitutional Amendment which
would reapportion the State's Senatorial Districts and provide for
reshuffling the House of Representatives on November 3.
From the stories that have appeared in several of the State's
daily newspapers, it appears that some of the Legislators in the
Southern part of the, state are, putting 'forth little if any effort
for the passage of the Amendment. In fact, it appears as if these
men are working actively against the measure.
No doubt you have read where many active organizations in
the Southern part of the state are' organizing to actively oppose
the Amendment -- one of them headed up by a probable can-
didate for governor.
This should serve ample notice to the residents of North arfd
Central Florida, that if they want to keep -their voice in the Legis-
lature, they had better get the lead out and get to work for the
Amendment. We have been given virtual assurance that the
prospect of a more favorable, division for the State as a whole,
and'especially for North and Central Florida would be practically
impossible to obtain if the measure is opposed.
This would make it adamant that every registered voter be
on hand November 8 to cast his ballot in the referendum--pre-
fei ably for the passage of the measure.

St. Joe Post Office

History Reveiled

The following information con-
cerning th.e history of -the post of-
flie at Port St. Joe was recently
furnished the St. Joseph Historical
Society by H. A. Drake, former
,post master at Port SOt. Joe. The
information was furnished Mr.
Drake ,by Congressman' Caldwell.

The postoffice of -old St. Joseph,
originally located in Franklin coun-
ty, was, established December 28,
1835 according to department rec-
ords, with James Black a- rP.:-as. '.
ter and received its earliest mail
service twice a week in .t :,-f, from
Marianna in Jckuson count,'. Jaie-s.
lM. HIarris was the. contractor for
this transportation service (Tnci-
dentally, the Marianna po-stoffic e
was established March 10, 1828.)
The earliest available net receipts
of ,the St. Joseph postoffice amount-
.ed to $623,56 for the fiscal year
ended. June 30, 1841. However, the
office was opened before postage
stamps came into general use,
since the government did not adopt
the postage stamp until the year
1847. Previous to this ,date the gov-
ernment allowed some postmasters
to issue 'stamps on their own as an
experiment. The -test was so sue-
cessufi that the government soon
took over the work and made the
issuing of postage stamps strictly
a function of the federal govern-

Dear Friends:
We'll leave the information in the lines above with you and de-
part from buying and selling for a few relaxed moments. I've heard
this is National Letter Writing Week (or was it last week?) Some-
how, I have a yen to, write you a brief letter. We really wonder at
times if this little whistle column is worth what it costs both In
/time, dollars and cents. It's quite a relief'to have made a decision
to discard the material methods of measure and to arrive at the
following conclusions: It gives a feeling of contact with community
and home folks that is a good substitute for my desire to meet and
talk with you more often. It is mental exercise that stimulates in-
terest and enthusiasm in people 'and things in general for me. It's
good to think more about others and less about myself. It adds up
to a profit aside from dollars and cents, and that's good enough for
me.
Did you read in This Week magazine section of the Times Un-
ionW"A World To Love" by the great actress Ethel Barrymore who
died last June at the age of 79? Here's her secret for happy living:
"You must learn day by day, year by year, to broaden your horizon.
The more things you love, the more you are interested In, the more
you enjoy, the more you are indignant about-the more you have
left when anything happens. I suppose the greatest thing in the world
is loving people and wanting to destroy the sin but not the sinner.
And not to forget that when life kocks you to your knees-well,
that's the best position in which to pray, isn't it? On your knees.
That's where I learned." A personal philosophy eloquently expressed
that is good food for thought.
Let's participate in National Letter Writing Week if It's only a
friendly note to some relative or friend who would be pleased to
hear. We stick this little teaser in an effort to encourage you to
write to this column: Every letter received stating why you-like to
Shop at Boyles Department Store and offering some helpful sugges-
tion entitles you to a free movie ticket or the equivalent In mer-
chandise. Think about this just a minute why not SAVE a little
every opportunity. S'long RGB
