Over Bonifay, 34-0
By WILL I. RAMSEY
The St. Joe Sharks had little
'trouble in downing the. Bonifay
Blue Devils by a 34-0 score last

The Sharks' running attack looked
better than it has in several games
with Willie Daniell and Chesley

'points. Fensom was a standout on
defense as well as offense.

will imitate this pattern as soon

Promise of New Industry Emphasizes
Need for Housing, Planning and Zoning
The people of Port St. Joe were again cheered this week with
the-announcement of the new Florida Gulf Fibre Company paper
mill which is locating here. The new industry is another in a
. series of new industries that have located here in Port St. Joe in
Sthe past four years and are scheduled to locate here in the next
Port St. Joe is truly becoming Northwest Florida's industrial
This new industry wili supply employment for another 300
persons. These persons will necessarily come from outside Port
St. Joe. It has long been the lament of citizens in Port St. Joe
that so many people who work here live in other cities. The
warnings is now public. Port St. Joe will have an additional 800
workmen in the City by the first of 1961. These people will need.
-. places to live. If we hope to keep thpm in Port St. Joe, these
houses must be provided someway. If we do not provide the
necessary housing, we have no one to blame but ourselves if the
S.new people settle in neighboring towns.
We give praise to the Chamber of Commerce and the St. Joe-
Paper Company for their efforts in securing this and other new
industries to our town. We think it would be the top order of
business now for the Chamber to concentrate on securing hous-
img for the City. We know it takes money to build these houses.
We also know it is hard to find someone who is willing to invest-
his capital on housing now for someone who will come in within
the next year: But, surely the housing can be lined up, ready for
building as the need arises.
Careful thought .and planning should go into this housing
and also to the zoning of our city. Up until now, zoning has been
pretty much on a voluntary basis and based on restrictions set up
by the St. Joe Land and Development Compant on property that.
They have sold. A plan of zoning is now definitely needed, since
our city has promise of growing by leaps and bounds during the
Next five years. .
This City. has .always suffered growing pains and has met
:them as they-:came. about. We can not let up on our working
and planning now. We can become a model city if we will just
plan and provide good places to live foi those who will come
into our city. .
Charge of Bolita Operations Center
Should Stir Citizens to Action
SRecent stories printed in the Panama City newspapers should
make the decent citizens -of Port St. Joe hang their heads in.
shame. There is no need for us to feel angry at the Panama City
papers. They are only printing what they know to be facts. If
.we are to resent anything, we must resent our own apathy.
Several years ago The Star wrote stories on these same, lines
and several times during the past few years, we have editorially
hung our head in shame that the bolita-racket has been allowed to
apparently flourish in Port St. Joe.
Being well-known in the community, the editor of The Star
could obtain no evidence in theracket otracket other than hear-say., The
-News-Herald has .obtained evidence. Apparently this evidence is
important and provides convicting information since the State
Attorney is holding hearings with the newspaper's staff.
The neighboring newspaper has labeled Port St. Joe as head-
-quarters for this nefarious racket. Local police and County
Sheriff's department denies the prevalence of bolita operations
here in Port St. Joe that the News-Herald implied and stated in
several of their editions.
We hesitate to think that the News and Herald would have
made the charge in their news columns if they didn't have substan-
tial evidence to back up their story.
It is our opinion that we as citizens should demand a thorough
(and we emphasize the word thorough) investigation into this
matter by City, County and State law enforcement officers.
.We have a wonderful town here in Port St. Joe arid it should
gall decent citizens to the quick to see the City beginning to earn
the reputation, of being a center for any racket or Illegal practice.

Mr. Wesley Ramsey, Editor
Port St. Joe, Florida
I have just returned from the
City Commissibn meeting which
was one of 'the biggest farces I have
ever had the misfortune to attend.
, The meeting was ,called for the
purpose of hearing objections to
the proposed plan by St. Joe Pa-
per Company to establish a bulk-
-head line. approximately 1,000 feet
or more in front o'f pep.r,I who have
spent (what to them was .great
sums of money) to build homes on'
jHighway 98 and facing St. Joseph's
Bay. We felt that we could depend
pany. In site of the fact that nearly
everyone there was against the
-proposal (except two or.'three offi-
cials or employees of St. Joe Paper
Company) the Commission voted
-unanimously for the proposal. Ob-

Mark Twain once said: "If you tell the truth-you don't have to
remember anything." This is some consolation to those of us who
may be concerned at times about our memory. Anyway, it's good
not to remember the unpleasant and easier to remember the plea-
sant. October 5, 1958 is a day Barbaraand I will long remember. We
came home after several years absence due to serious illness. Some.
thing over a year now and we've not wanted to go anywhere .
just being at home is enough. Just recently something really won-
derful has happened even though it may sound just routine to you.
A pleasant, friendly young woman around Barbara's age has taken
the interest and time to visit her and take her to a Bible'study group
that meets in various homes weekly. No one is able to assess the
impact and value of such a kind and friendly gesture. Those of us
who have had serious mental and emotional difficulties have a keen,
perhaps extraordinary need and appreciation for just plain friendli-
ness and companionship. Sincere friendliness prompted by human
love is the greatest remedy in the world for fear, frustration and
confusion. No other remedy will ever surpass its effectiveness and
healing power to humans who have temporarily lost their way In
life. The world should be truly grateful for those who have suffi-
ciently overcome fears to give of themselves wholly and freely In
simple, plain friendship and love. There is no security for humanity
without these wonderful people the salt of the earth.
One gracious lady had this to say about Boyles Betty Rose suits.
"It just so happens that I have taken the opportunity to look In the
better stores in several large cities for a suit. I didn't see anything
that I liked in fit, style or fabrics. This is by far the best value I've
seen, and it fits. I'll take it". Thank you for being so frank, Mrs. A.
We didn't mention that you were so pleased with the moderate
price-about 25% less than you would pay elsewhere. Ladies, bet-
ter hurry on Betty Rose suits and coats stocks will soon be
