"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chottahoochee Valley"
pORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1959
by WeSaEEY R. RAMSEY
Of course, we wish all our read-
ers a Merry Christmas and a Hap-
py New Year.
If Christmas did nothing else
but prompt people to wish other
people well and create the good
feelings the season is so famous
for, It would he well worth while,
Christmas seems to be the uni-
versal "best season" of the year.
A day spent at home enjoying
.the family will be the order of the
day at our house and we hope it
will be the same at yours.
Above all, be careful or you
might just spoil someone's Christ-
We are going to publicly put
Dr. Wayne Hendrix on notice
that his advice will be ignored
until December 26 at approxi-
mately 7:00 a.m.
We had occasion to go to the
good doctor for a physical exam-
ination some few weeks ago and
She said, "You'd better lose about
25' pounds-you are too heavy".
We couldn't tell whether we were
too heavy, or. whether the good
Doc is' Just Jealous and wants
everybody else to come down to
his size. But, feeling the advice
came from a knowing source, we
set out to shed pounds. And we
did-10 of them. But the coming
'of the Christmas table will' ruin
all of that for a few days.
Those hard-to-get-rld-pt 10 lit-
tle pounds will come bounding
back in these few days and we
will have to start all over again.
Did you ever see a honest-to-
goodness honest hunter or fisher-
If you 'haven%.t, then run up and
down the street and when you come
across Jack. Fowler, look him over
good, becausehe is just one of this
peculiar and all but extinct, breed.
Did you ever hear of a hunter
just plain missing a shot (to hear
him tell it) or .a fisherman just los-
ing a fish because of his. careless-
Jack lays claim to being the only
man ,in Gulf County who admits to
missing a deer.
Jack says a- deer came by him
the other day and he just plain
missed him. The deer wasn't just
out of range; Jack didn't trip; his
gun didn't hang up; his shell didn't
miss-fire. Jack missed and he ad-
mits it in plain words.
My hat is off to you Jack for be-
ing our "honest man of the week".
Along these same lines, Judge
W. L. Fitzpatrick and Chief of
Police Buck Griffin came by the
shop the other day with two big
gobblers they say they killed out
in the woods somewhere over in
Bay County. They followed the
true code of the hunter and said
they could have killed several
more if "conditions" had been

Don't Play With Fire
Those who remember when the only way to light a Christ-
mas tree was with candles also recall the .Merry Yule as a time
of worry for their elders and a time When, for some, fires took
the fun out of the festivities.
But there's still magic im candle-light -- for the gentler
C sex. The way to make a supper table glamorous, it seems, is to
light it with candles. And if you can't see what you're eating, or
'the way to your mouth, that's all the more romantic -- or some-
Sthing This, it seems, is especially true at Christmas when there
rae likely to be>candles all over the place anrd particularly in the
This would therefore seem to be a good time for a note of
warning. And, at the risk of being castigated as a killjoy, a
pain-in-the-neck, even a party-pooper, we would say candles are
alright on the dinner table as long as everybody is sitting around
looking at them, but blow them out when you get up to leave.
And don't put candles in the windows or use them for decorations
elsewhere -- unless you have fire-proof curtains and drapes.
The greatest danger lies in decorations of paper or'plastic that
may be too hear the'flame, and most of all from flimsy, inflam-
mable fabrics such as are often used for curtains or for costumes
or in women's blouses and negligees. Curtains may billow or the
flame may follow an unexpected draft. As for what people may
do, read any newspaper.
Think of the hazards and go easy on the candles. Light
'em while you look at 'em -- and then blow 'em out. The Fire
Department members would like to spend the Christmas season
with their families uninterrupted by having to put out a careless
fire. And a Merry Christmas to yoti.
True Meaning of Christmas Is.
Fully Realized By Our Youths
\'e wonder how many of you have been reading the series
'of articles published in The Star for the past three weeks? The
articles were written by pupils in Mrs. Wayne Biggs' college pre-
paratory English class on the subject, '"What Christmas 'Means
To Me". ...
Almost without exception,/the students were fully aware
of the Christmas season as being the timed of the birth of the
'Christ Child -- the greatest gift ever for any man.
The thinking of these young men and women give hope
-to the fact that a Christian peace may someday pervade upon the
-'earth due'to the realization of these future leaders of the true
"'things of life.
These articles' would also serve to debunk the thinking that
Christmas is becoming season of commercialization. We believe
it is fully implanted on the minds of every human being living in
Sa civilized oriil4 just what the Christmas season means. As for
commercialization n -- what makes man,.or woman feel better
,and more charitable than thd giving of a gift? A simple gift has
patchedlup many a quarrel, cemented many a friendship and, in
the pase of Christmas, brought loved ones closer together. And
what better start on Christianity could a person have than to
create a better feeling between himself and his friends?

The will to live is an impor-

variance in the nature of pa-
tients faced with serious illness.
