THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1960
Consider This Resolution
Probably by now most of us have already discarded our
New Year's resolutions. They are now six days old and that is
old enough for any resolution to get that we have no intention of
Now that the frivolous resolutions have been made, mulled
over, looked at in the light of day and quietly discarded it would
seem an opportune time to think of a resolution that should be
kept in 1960. Not only should it be kept, but it should be expand-
ed on in years to come.
The Star would like to see everybody in Port St. Joe resolve
to do their utmost to boost the progress of our city during the
next year. The year of 1960 and probably the next five years
will be some of the most important years in the history of Port
St. Joe and even its predecessor old St. Joseph. Port St. Joe has
definite promise now of more industry for 1960 that will probably
add no less than an extra thousand families to the city during the
next few years to come. Certainly we will not limit ourselves to
this thousand, but this number is fairly definite.
Even so, the addition of 1,000 more families to our city will
cause a 25 percent growth. This growth can be a catastrophe if
we do not work together in the planning for the expansion that
will come with the addition of these new families.
New schools, new water and sewer expansions, new streets,
more garbage collection service, new homes, more of everything is
going to' be needed. It is up to us to see that these needs are
furnished. When you are called on to do your part, resolve now,
that you will not renege on your responsibility.
Modern Port St. Joe has now come of age. It is over 21
years old. It is time that we stop acting like a small city and be-
gin to act like an adult city. Many of'us have lived here for a
number of years. The editor of The Star has been here for 20
years. We are going to do what we can. How about you?
One Kasper, One Red
Can Wreck Harmony
Racist John Kasper, released from the Federal Correctional
Institution at Tallahassee last month, is just one kind of agitator
that has fomented racial discord on the national and Southern
scene over the years.
Kasper's viewpoint, if it truly can be called a viewpoint, .s
one of racial segregation, but his egotism and personal tactics of
antagonism have done only harm to the cause of the South and
segregation. There is nothing in. Kasper's past to indicate, that
be earnestly believes in the South, the Southern cause for segre-
gation or anything but John Kasper.
It is safe to assume that if John Kasper had never appear-
ed on the scene, especially in these difficult times, that the Sou-
thern cause would have been advanced much further. The cult
of violence and agitation on both sides of the race question has
done only injury to the problem and hindered its solution. Kas-
per's future will do more to insure continuity of Southern custom
than his past ever did. He is headed for another six-month term
in Tennessee for agitation during the integration of Nashville
schools in 1957. '

In Gulf County
Statistics released this week by
George F. Hurayt, district manager
of the Jacksonville office of Dun
& Bradstreet, Inc., reflect the
growth of the business population
in Gulf County during the past ten
years. Figures obtained from a phy-
sical count of the Dun & Bradstreet
Reference Book for January, 1960
totaled 155 manufacturers, whole-
salers and retailers in this area as
compared to 111 in January, 1950
-an increase of 39 per cent for
The Dun & Bradstreet Reference
Book lists all manufacturers, whole-
salers, and retailers who seek or
grant commercial credit. It does
not include some of the .service and
professional businesses such as
beauty and barber shops, security
dealers .and real estate brokers.
Therefore, the figure for businesses
in Gulf County would actually be
higher than the 155 quoted above.
The Dun & Bradstreet Reference
Book, which is the world's largest
regularly published volume, is re-
vised every sixty days to keep the
business listings current. During
the past sixty days, nearly 70,000
new names were added to the Ref-
erence Book 'and almost 65,000
were removed. During this period,
credit ratings were changed on
more than 110,000 business enter-
As one phase In revising credit
date, Dun & Bradstreet, Inc., thru
its national network of offices,
writes every year to all businesses
in the Reference Book to request
their financial statements. This
year, these requests are being sent
to approximately three million
businesses--to the corner grocery
store worth a few thousand dollars
as well as to businesses worth nil-
When the owner of a business en-
terprise, or his accountant, fills out
and mails his financial statement to
Dun & Bradstreet, it becomes a
part of the credit report on his bus-
iness and a factor in determining
the credit rating of his business.
Dun & Bradstreet, Inc., has been
reporting on American business
since 1841 without cost of any kind
,to 'the business it reports on or
lists in its Reference Book. The
suppliers who grant credit pay all
costs through an annual subscrip-
tion to the agency's service.

A birth defects study
center, the first of its kind
designed to combine clini-
cal treatment with research
and teaching, has just been
officially opened at Colum-
bus, Ohio. It is supported
by funds from the New
March of Dimes, which is
now engaged in its January
campaign for contributions
to fight three major crip-
pling diseases including,
besides birth defects, ar-
thritis and polio. .
* Medical experts say that
birth defects are the biggest
unmet childhood medical prob-
lem in the United States today.
There are more than 600 differ-.
ent kinds of birth defects, or
"congenital malformations," as
they are called by doctors. They
range all the way from harelip
and clubfoot to mental retarda-
Some 250,000 Amdrican
babies are born each year with
one or more significant birth
defects; and about half of this
number are doomed to a life-
time of serious illness or crip-
pling. About 34,000 infants each
year are stillborn because of
these afflictions, or die within
the first month of life. Medical
science as yet has few clues
to the causes of these disorders
that occur before birth; and
there are few known methods
Shrouded in Superstition
The study center in Colum-
bus' famed Children's Hospital
thus represents the beginning
of the New March of Dimes
attempt to solve a medical
problem that has heretofore
been largely neglected by re-
search. It is a problem that has
for .centuries been shrouded
in fear, superstition and shame.
By tackling this issue with a
three-pronged program of re-
search, patient aid and training
of skilled medical professionals,
the March of Dimes organiza-
tion seeks to bring hope to the
hundreds of thousands of par-
ents whose lives have been
blighted by bewildering grief
and heartbreak following the
birth of a malformed child,.
This hope is bolstered by the
past record of the March of
Dimes organization in fighting
baffling diseases. It was March
of Dimes funds that encour-
aged Dr. Jonas E. Salk to be-
come a virologist and that

Through the combination of
treatment, teaching and study
at the Columbus Birth Defects

lieved that new knowledge will
be obtained and spread so that
the devastating effects of these
disorders may eventually, for

Meets At Church
TALLAHASSEE-If all the for- The WMS of the First 'Baptist
est fires that killed or damaged met Monday afternoon 'at the
trees on Florida's protected wood- church for their regular monthly
lands last year had burned in a sin-
gle area, the flaming devastation
would' have covered 72 .square
Put another way, that's an area
equal to a strip 625 feet wide
stretching all the way from Pen-
sacola to Miami.
1959's total of 3,862 wildfires
burned over 46,208 .acres of forest
land. The amount, though stagger-
ing, was considerably less than the
damage the year before-when 4,-
714 fires ravaged 56,669 acres. Part
of the difference .was due to what
was, for some areas, one of the
wettest years on record. But State
Forester C. H. Coulter expressed
the hope that more people were be-
ing careful with trash and brush
fires, matches and cigarettes.
If most people were being more
careful, then others continued old
ways of vengeful destruction-like
the fellow who set a string of 33
fires in Taylor county on New
Although forest fires damaged
trees and seedlings on an 'area
equal to two square townships, fire
fighters kept the toll down to only
a small part of Florida's protected
forest lands. Of the nearly 17,000,-
000 acres where fire control crews
stand guard, only a litlte more than
one-fourth of one per cent burned.
On Florida's unprotected acreage,
the yearly toll is between 30 and
50 per cent of the area.
