PTA Discusses

Repairs Needed




The Elementary PTA met last
Thursday night .at the Elementary
School' auditorium at 7:30 p.m. for


its regular monthly meeting.
Guest speaker for the night was
Tom Owens, Superintendent of Pub-
lic Instruction for Gulf County who
answered questions from those
present on school finances.
Of primary interest to the group
was whether or not several chalk-.
boards could not be replaced in the
school buildings. Owens said that
in the present budget all 'the boards
could not be replaced but that pos-
sibly some of them could. He also
told the PTA that the need for the
chalkboards had not 'been brought
to his 'attention prior to the Thurs-


0..... .-. .. ..




ROSIN IS LOADED on a Japanese ship at the Port St. Joe dock for overseas, shipment. The ship was
loaded out last week end by the Glidden Company of Port St. Joe with nearly 2,000 barrels of rosin. The
product was produced by the local Glidden 'plant using by-products from the St. Joe Paper Company.
This shipload is only the beginning of future water shipments to be made by the local concern over


the Port St. Joe docks.


ETAOIN SHRDLU
by W$I..EY R. RAMSEY


It was cold in Port St. Joe last
week end. In fact, The Star suffer-
ed a casualty-a broken water fau-
cet out beside the building.
That poor "old faucet has "caught
it" for the past few years. It has
been run over and knocked down
twice and frozen a time or two.
But it still gives water. Just turn
the handle on the new. faucet.

It's a pity that water faucet was-
n't a flower. It would 'have been
moved inside by the little woman.
Came last Thursday night and 'the
potted plants at 1015 Marvin. Ave-
nue moved right into the warm liv-
ing room. And there they stayed
until the cold snap passed.
Personally, if I had 'babied those
plants ,this long I would rather let
them take their chanese with the
cold than with our six wild indians.
Somehow or other, they survived
both ordeals.

We received a right nice letter
last week from a former classmate.
The letter was from Mrs. Bunny
Zeigler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Chris Martin.
Bunny says she is now getting
The Star each week. She said that
The Star's arrival was just as en-
joyable as pay day.
Although we appreciate the com-
pliment, it is 'hard for this humble
editor to imagine any newspaper
could be half as nice as -pay day.
But we will blissfully take the
compliment as it was stated and
ride on cloud number nine -for a
while.

The U. S. and the Russians have
taken up a tactic familiar to .every
person who has ever been a boy.
All of you remember bragging
to a fellow 'boy, "my dad can lick
your. dad". Now Russia is saying
"our missiles can fly farther and
straighter 'than yours". While the
U. S., 'living up to the age old cus-
tom of small boys is saying, "It can
not-ours can fly farther and
straighter than yours".
What puzzles me is, if this Atlas
sla so good, why does it blow up on
every trip it starts to the Moon
or some other such fancy trip?
It looks to us like these ."failures"
are pre-arratged to foment public

L G. Buck Resigns Position With

Citizens Federal Savings and Loan


After assisting in organizing the
Citizens Federal Savings and Loan
Association of Port St. Joe in 1956
and serving as Executive Vice
President from the date of opening
for business on December 18, 1956,
L. G. Buck has resigned as Execu-
tive Vice President in July of 1959.
However, he has continued to serve
until his successor, C. J. Stevens,
formerly with the Florida Bank at
Port St. Joe was installed January
1, 1960. Buck also resigned from
the Board of Directors of the As-
sociation on January 20, 1960.
During Buck's term of office the
Association has grown from begin-
ning capital of $206,000 on Decem-
ber 18, 1956 to $1,579,000 as of De-
cember 31, 1959. During this time
the Association financed home and
business structure building in all
parts of Franklin, Gulf and Cal-
houn Counties, 'and Mexico Beach
in Bay County.
Mr. Buck states 'that his more
than three years service with Citi-
zens- Federal gives five years ex-
perience in Savings and Loan Busi-
ness, having been President of a

South Florida, while residing isn

option toward supporting a larger
missile budget.
But, we -shouldn't think such
things.

The political ring is beginning
to fill up, much to the delight of
The Star and every other printing
concern over the state.
We look forward each election
year to 'that extra boost to our al-
ways sagging bank account.

Joe Sharit's telephone crew is a
polite bunch of men.
The other Friday afternoon the
telephone at our house went out of
order. Rather -than call the tele-
phone company and disrupt some
repairman's week end, we waited
until Monday morning to report it.
When the repairmen got to the
house, Frenchie was hanging out
some clothes to dry and the clothes-
line broke.
After the phone was repaired, the
men thenn repaired the clothesline.
Thank you, gentlemen, you saved
me the job.


L. G. BUCK

Bradenton mahy years ago. Mr.
Buck especially emphasizes that he
values very highly the friendships
of -the great number of citizens he
became acquainted with while serv-
ing as Executive Vice President of
Citizens Federal Savings and Loan
Association.

Bay High's Tornadoes defeated
the Port St. Joe Sharks Tuesday
night in Panama City by a 12 point
margin, 48-36.
Action grew rougher as the game
progressed and most of the rebound-
ing ended in scuffling.
The Sharks scored only one field
goal in the first half along w'th
four three 'throws in the defensive
free-for-all.
Rebounding proved the back-
breaker for Port St. Joe, 'as Bay
High's taller Tornadoes grabbed
most of the misses.
Buddy Ward, St. Joe's only six-
footer, led his squad's rebounding
with nine while David Musselwhite
had seven.
The Shark's offensive game also
,failed as the losers only hit seven
per cent of their attempts in the
first half. The average improved in1


the final period and the 'Sharks
closed out with a 27 per cent scor-
ing average.
Jimmy Dawson led the Shark at-
tack with 12 markers. Jimmy Wil-
der followed with nine.
A 'fourth period Shark rally spark-
ed .by Dawson fell short even though
the losers out-scored Bay, 17-8.

PTA Learns Answer to School Ills -

Money Where Will It Come From? ,

The Port St. Joe Elementary PTA became extremely aware
last Thursday night of the tight budget that the Gulf County
School Board operates under. The PTA was primarily concerned
with installing new blackboards in rooms in the Elementary
Schools, where it has been reported that the old blackboards
are unusable. Several other repair projects of a minor nature
were reported, but blackboards were of the primary concern.
Superintendent of Public Instruction, Thomas A. Owens was
on hand and the PTA quizzed him at length on the things that the
School Board could do to improve conditions at the Elementary
School. Still the primary thought was to acquire new black-
boards.
The PTA put many questions to Owens as to why this or
that couldn't be done at the schools. All the questions received
the same answer no money available.
Many of the PTA members wondered why the money was
not available, and although nobody said it, the reason the money
is not available is perfectly obvious.
There just isn't enough taxable property on the rolls.
It's a bad situation. Those having property on the tax rolls
are taxed all the State will allow for school operations. There
is no "out" by raising the taxes, as they have been raised to the
limit of the law.
The one and only remedy to the school situation, if we
hope to keep home control over our schools is a re-evaluation of
the entire county spreading out the tax burden and putting more
tax payers on the rolls.
Some are opposed to re-evaluation because they claim it
will do away with homestead. Let us point out that the home-
btead exemption law was never written (in our opinion) to do
away with the need for a person to pay taxes on his homestead.
The law states that the first $5,000.00 of valuation of a homestead
will be exempt -- not the entire valuation as is now the practice.
Homestead exemption would still be with us
Re-evaluation, as this newspaper has stated before, would
only make it possible for parents of the county to contribute
$10.00 or $15.00 a year to the school operation. Of course, in the
process it would also mean that the county and the city would be
able to fatten their coffers too. But look at it this way. The
citizens of Port St. Joe are desirous of street paving. This added
income could provide that paving. There are many things that
cur local governments could do for our city if the money was
available.
Talking about more taxes is unpopular. A person never
wants to pay more than he has too. This is understandable.
But, if we want the things we think we are entitled too, the
only way to have them is to pay for them. We could not condone
nor do we think the citizens of this community or this county
would be so unfair as to suggest that the few now paying taxes on
the local level be required to dig deeper to furnish these services.
A fair re-evaluation will mean a fair tax to all which will
ultimately mean that Port St. Joe and Gulf County can advance
at a pace which will satisfy us and serve as an example to the
rest of the State.



Tax Expert Says Overhaul of Income

Tax Structure Will Spur Economy

A tax expert recently told a House committee that thorough-
going reform of federal individual income tax rates should boost
personal incomes by at least $40 billion -- the amount of the
current individual income tax bill -- within eight years. It would
accomplish this by removing impediments to economic progress
which stand squarely in the way of industrial expansion. In his
words, "All progress is dependent upon capital, which must be
saved out of current income, and the existence of 'reward' incen-
tives. It is the tax rates which restrict capital accumulation, and
restrain incentives."
In this connection, it should be noted that virtually all econ-
omists are convinced that much more individual investment in
producing enterprise will be needed if the ever-growing working
force is to be provided with good jobs, and the general standard
of living is to continue to rise. The need is particularly great for
increased investment in common stocks -- a kind of investment
'that gives industry a far greater flexibility than is true of debt fi-
nancing. But the investor, under our existing tax system, is heav-,
ily penalized at all turns.
First of all, profits are taxed at the corporate level, at a
rate of 52 per cent for companies of any size. Then whatever is
left, and is paid out in dividends, is taxed all over again at the
individual level at rates ranging from 20 per cent on the smallest
taxable incomes to a high of 91 per cent. Thereafter, if the stock-
holder sells his shares in the corporation and makes a profit, he
i subjected to a capital gains tax of 25 per cent.
Yes, progress in a free country is dependent on private capi-
tal. And our tax system imposes a heavy drag on both the accumu-
lation and the investment of capital.

"Radio Russia says that America is a hysterical topsy-turvy
country where people eat upsidedown cake, doors go round in
circles and everybody has an inside outhouse."

The Lowdown On A Tall Story









FOUNDATION' PLANTIWKS BED PLANTlNq~


IOI i 'D


When it comes to planning
a garden, new gardeners are
often baffled about "what" to
put "where." Here are several
basic exterior decorating sug-
gestions that will help you
grow a delightful garden this
summer.
Walk around your yard and
pick out the places you would
like to brighten up with gay,
colorful annuals. Don't neglect
your front yard when making
your plans, for here's where
your gardening dexterity will.
be most appreciated 'by people
passing by.
The heights of the flowers
you want to plant should gov
ern just where they go in your
decorating scheme. You will
find the heights of all flowers
given in in your seed catalogue
and on the back of your seed
packets. Make a chart and list
the flowers you select under
three categories: low-growing
should be approximately 4" to
14": medium-growing from 14"
to 30": tall-growing should be
all those over 30".
If you plan on planting an-
nuals around the foundation
af your house, you will want to
use all three heights of flow-
ars. You will need about five
feet of depth for your planting.
rail-growing flov -, should be


planted in the rear against the
house, medium-growing annuals
in the middle and low-growing
plants in the foreground. This
gives a three tier effect with
all of the flowers showing to
the 'best advantage.
The same three heights
should be used in borders
which are plantings (generally
seen from one side of the
house) along a fence or prop-
erty line. A variety of flowers
can be used in a border plant.
ing.
A. bed is a planting which Is
normally seen from both sides,
and should therefore be plant..
ed with the tall-growing an-
nual in the center with the
edges tapered down to the low-
growing flowers.
Edgings which are planted.
along walks and driveways
etc., can be of low and media.
amn-growing annuals. A double.
parallel row planted about
eight inches apart will give a
much richer, thicker effect
than a single row. .
When selecting your flower
seed, plan on combining flow.
ers of 'tall, spikey habit (sucth
as snapdragons) with those 0o
different type' of habit and
bloom (such as calendula).
This will give your garden the
delightful balance and contrast
of a flower arrangement.

Historic Society

Given Picture

The St. Joseph Historical Society
held its regular meeting Saturday,
January 23 at 3:00 p.m. in the
Chamber Room of the Municipal
Building.
The highlight of the meeting was
the election of officers for the year
1960. Mrs. Ned S. Porter was re-
elected president, the other offi-
cers were as follows: Vice-presi-
dent, Jesse V. Stone; recording
Secretary, Mrs. Ralph Swatts; Cor-
responding Secretary, Mrs. R. H.
Brinson; Treasurer and Publicity
Chairman, Charles B. Smith.
'Mrs. Fred Maddox was appoint-
ed as *chairman of the committee
for th beautification of the old St.
Joseph Cemetery.
During the course of the meet-
ing a beautiful etching of "Verdura"
was displayed for the members to
see. This was the home of Major
Benjamin Chaires of Tailahastee
and St. Joseph. The home was des-
igned and built by Major Chaires
circa 1834. It was part of a large
estate near Tallahassee. The home:
was destroyed by fire around 1900.
Major Chaires will be remember-
ed by students of the history of
St. Joseph as the first president of.
. the St. Joseph and Lake Wimico
* Railroad of St. Joseph and Presi-
* dent of the Union Bank of Talla-
* hassee.
The beautiful framed 1,6" x 18"
etching of Verdura was, presented
to the local Society through the
courtesy of Miss Elllngton E.
Chaires of Jacksonville. Miss
Chaires is a descendent of Major
- Chaires.
The members of the Ohaires fam-
ily have been most cooperative in
aiding the local Society in their re-
search on the 'St. Joseph period.
* The .projects for the ensuing year
were discussed. One of the projects
will be the gathering of data con-
cerning the lives of the signers of
Florida's first Constitution. The So-
clety will also try -to obtain all pic-
tures of the delegates wch are
extant.

...- CHEVY!





NOW-THE CAR THAT STARTS THE SIXTIES

WITH SO MUCH THAT'S NEW,

SO MUCH THAT'S DIFFERENT

...AND SETS THE PACE WITH LOWER PRICES!





SThe Dinah Shore Chevy Show In color Sundays, NBC-TV-the Pat Boone Chevy Showroom weekly, ABC-TV.


Chevrolet speaks of the Sixties like
no other car-with a broad accent on
spaciousness, stirring new concepts in
styling and strong emphasis on spirit
and thrift.
Step inside this superlative '60 and
look at the worlds of room around
you: head room, hip room, shoulder-
squaring room. Note how Chevrolet's
engineers have further flattened and
narrowed the transmission tunnel to
give the middle man more foot room.
Chevrolet's greater roominess is inside
where you want it-not outside in
useless body overhang.
You'll find economy teamed with
performance in a new standard V8,
engineered to deliver up to 10% more
miles for every gallon, or the strapping
Hi-Thrift 6.
And riding comfort in the new one
is a never-ending treat, thanks to Full
Coil spring suspension. There are also
thicker, newly designed body mounts
that filter noise and vibration to the
vanishing point, more rigid frame and
many other engineering advances.
But you'll have to drive the Sixty
sizzler yourself-that's the clincher.
Why not see your Chevrolet dealer
now-for a drive
and the happy de-
tails on Chevy's CHEVROLET
new lower prices.


SNow-fast delivery, favorable deals! See your local authorized Chevrolet dealer.

NO HIT-OR-MISS Rxs FOR YOU

The prescription of years ago was largely a hit-or-miss
affair. If one drug didn't work, the doctor tried another
then another. Often, none of the drugs did much
good. But the day of the hit-or-miss prescription is no
more. Now, the doctor knows exactly what each drug
can do. The first one he prescribes is usually the right
one -- the one drug that does a perfect job of curing.
That's why .

Today's Prescription Is the Biggest Bargain In History

Explained To

Rotary Club
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club
was told of the possible changes
in the local post office if, as expect-
ed, it -becomes a first class office
on July 1. Postmaster C. L. Costin
and Panama City postmaster Ray
Schmidt, presented the program.
Costin said that 'the biggest
change that will be noticed by the
,public on the transition to a first
class office will be the parcel mail-
ing rules and regulations. At pres-
ent, with the local post office sec-
ond class rating, a parcel weighing
up to 70 pounds and 100 inches in
diameter may be mailed. Mailing of
parcels from a first class office
will 'be limited to parcels weighing
40 pounds -for the first two zones
'and 20 pounds for packages sent
beyond the second zone.

be fired 'because of pressure from
the various landowners whose plan-
tations were being burned.
Attempts by investigating offi-
cers to catch 'the woodsburners dur-
ing the period of fire-setting were
met 'by threats of bodily harm. Lo-
cal landowners were instructed to
pass the word that "if them green
cars don't get out of the woods,
the person who's setting those fires
would just as soon go to jail for
a shooting as for woodsburning."
J. P. Schuck, chief investigative
officer for 'the Florida Forest Ser-
vice, stated that only 24 hour duty,
team work 'and prompt action by
Forest 'Service firefighters prevent-
ed more widespread damage in the
area
"Fires were set repeatedly as
late as ten o'clock at night," he
said, remarking on the hundreds of
attempts at lthehdiarism which oc-
curred over the four-week period.
"'Sometimes it looked as if the
woodsburietrs .iad run out of good
places td burn, and were just try-
ing to set fiir to everything in
sight."


Saturday, January 30 is evalua-
tion day -at the Port St. Joe Ele.
