Fire Damages Home in
North 'Port 'St. Joe

The entire contents of a home
occupied by Johnnie Mae Harris
in North Port St. Joe were destroy-
ed by fire, but the building itself
was ,aved by the Port St. Joe Vol-
unteer Fire Department last Thurs-
day afternoon.
Another close-by house caught
fire also but was quickly extinguish-
ed by the fire department.
Quick action by the fire depart-


to get up a deposit.
in supporting their complaint of
discrimination in charges, the rep-
resentatives, cited the fact that non-
insurance carriers were only re-
quired to put up a $75.00 -deposit,
which would pay their room and
board for approximately a week.
But no deposit was required on
other possible expenses such as use
of the operating room, medication,
dressings, x-rays, and other ser-
vices performed by 'the hospital
which can make up the bulk of
some hospital bills.
The delegation pointed out that
their insurance paid for all hospi-
tal services except the difference
in room and board, and asked that
the Board 'either relax their need
'for a deposit or require a deposit
from non-insured people for ser-
vices other than room and board.
G. L. Kennington, hospital chair-
man for the Papermakers Union
acted as spokesman for the group.
He was accompanied by Troy Jones
of the Papermakers Union, Ray-
,mond Hightower of the Machinists
mood Hightower. .Jesse Dawson
and Ivy Cooper of .the-Machinists
Union and R. C. Lewis 'of the Elec-
trical Workers Union.'
Jones, speaking for the union
told the Board that they had just
re-negotiated with Blue Cross and
Blue Shield or a six-month con-
tract the first of May and obtained
a contract based on a $9.00 per
day benefit for room and board.
Jones said that his union didn't
know the hospital rates were being
raised until their contract 'went in-
to effect. He pointed out that the
contract was negotiated in order
that their entire hospital bill would
'be paid (under the old rates). He


Rev. Cain At The

Pentecostal Church

Rev. J. H. Cain of Cocoa Beach
will be the featured' speaker for
the evening services of the Camp


pointed out that a good number of
the men were unable to ,pay an ad-
ditional charge.
Kennington suggested 'to the
Board that holders of the paper
company hospital insurance poli-
cies 'be allowed to enter the hospital
with no deposit upon admission,
then be presented a bill for 'the dif-
ference in room rates each Monday
morning of his stay in the hospital
for payment.
The City Commission agreed
with this request and asked the
Union's aid in seeing that -the bills
were paid. The City will send each
Union representative a list of those
members, with hospital bills past
due and will ask for the Union's
cooperation in trying -to see that
the bills are paid.
'Mayor Sharit .pointed out the
need for seeing that bills 'are paid
by the fact that there are now
over $100,000.00 in unpaid bills now
on .the hospitals 'books. The Ma-
yor pointed out that' with a. better
payment record, hospital,-services
could' be reduced since," "we are
only trying to ,break even, and ne-
ver intend to make any money
with 'the hospital". Sharit pointed
out that for the past five years, the
hospital had paid its own way and
he felt it should continue .to do so.
,None of the delegation were of-
fering complaints of the amount of
hospital charges, but wanted only
to gain some relief on the entrance
requirements until their hospitali-
zation. contractsI' could be re-nego-
tiated.
POLICE RADIO-TELEPHONE
Mayor-Commissioner J. L. Shar-
it reported Tuesday night that the
new radio-telephone aparatus for
the police department patrol car is
due to .be shipped by the manufac-
turer on June 15. Mayor Sharit said
the equipment should be Installed
and operating by July 1.
The Commission voted to install
the radio-telephone facilities in the
police car last year as added' pro-
tection for residents in Port S.t.
Joe. The installation of the equip-
ment has met one delay after an-
other since that time. Among the
delays were those caused 'by the
Federal Communications Commis-
sion, who has to approve such in-
stallations, delay in manufacture
of the equipment due to the heavy
defense department demands upon
manufacturers of such equipment,
and more recently the advent of a
newer, more efficient and more
economical system caused the St.
Joseph Telephone & Telegraph
Company 'to change its order for
the equipment.
The St. Joseph Telephone & Tele-
graph Company is installing the
facilities in their switchboard and
will rent the service to the city.
The new phone system will .permit

CARD OF THANKS
To the many kind and consider-

and comfort during our time of be-

dwell in that heavenly home that
'awaits all such Christians you tru-
ly proved that a friend in need is
a friend indeed.
Especially do we wish to thank
Dr. William Wager, who so gra-
ciously came to our aid in those
last trying moments. May God's
richest blessings fall on each of
you kind people is the wish of .

STOP DISEASE BEFORE IT STARTS
Just a few generations ago, virtually the only di-
sease that doctors could prevent with a drug was
smallpox. Today, many maladies are almost un-
known-maladies that once took countless lives.
These caladies-diphtheria, typhoid, lockjaw, po-
lio, nutritional deficiencies-have been conquered
by modern drugs, which stop the diseases before
they ca nget started. That's why we say .

These "stick-tight" scales lose

BIGGEST MAY


SINCE THE MODEL "A'I..

THE MONTH OF MAY WAS THE BIGGEST FOR FORD CAR SALES IN
32 YEARS-SINCE THE HEYDAY OF THE HOT MODEL "A" IN 1929.

MORE THAN 143,000 FORD CARS WERE SOLB.

THIS MEANS THAT EVERY SIX SECONDS OF EVERY EIGHT-HOUR
DAY, SOMEONE BOUGHT ANOTHER FORD, FALCON, THUNDERBIRD, OR
FORD WAGON.

\... .r / .. ,, i

PERHAPS THOSE 143,000 AMERICANS FOUND OUT SOMETHING YOU
SHOULD KNOW. THEY DID ALL THE SHOPPING, DEALER BY DEALER;
THEY MADE ALL THE COMPARISONS, CAR BY CAR. BUT THEY
BOUGHT FORDS I

WHY?

SOONER OR LATER YOU'LL GET A NEW CAR. WHEN YOU DO, TRY
YOUR FORD DEALER FIRST--HE WILL GIVE YOU AN ABSOLUTE
YARDSTICK OF VALUE IN EVERY PRICE RANGE FROM A TUDOR
FALCON TO A THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE.

HERE'S WHAT TO LOOK FOR. IN THE GALAXIE PRICE RANGE, DON'T
SETTLE FOR LESS THAN A CAR THAT'S BEAUTIFULLY BUILT TO
TAKE CARE OF ITSELF...THAT GOES 30,000 MILES BETWEEN
CHASSIS LUBRICATIONS...4,000 MILES BETWEEN OIL CHANGES...
WHOSE BRAKES ADJUST THEMSELVES AUTOMATICALLY...WHOSE
MUFFLER IS BUILT TO LAST THREE TIMES AS LONG AS ORDINARY
ONES.. .WHOSE BODY IS SPECIALLY TREATED TO RESIST RUST AND
CORROSION...WHOSE FINISH NEVER NEEDS WAXING.

IF YOU WANT RECORD ECONOMY LOOK TO THE FALCON... THIS IS
THE ABSOLUTE RUN-AWAY BEST SELLER OF ALL COMPACT CARS...
WITH THE GAS MILEAGE RECORD OF 32.6 MILES PER GALLON,
PROVEN BY AN EXPERT DRIVER IN A FALCON WITH STANDARD
SHIFT, UNDER THE CROSS-COUNTRY TEST CONDITIONS OF THIS
YEAR'S MOBILGAS ECONOMY RUN.

OR COMBINE ECONOMY WITH A TOUCH OF THE THUNDERBIRD, IN
THE ELEGANT NEW FALCON FUTURA...BUCKET SEATS AND ALL.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE TWELVE FORD WAGONS, EVERY ONE IS DE-
SIGNED AND BUILT TO GIVE YOU MORE SOLID ROOM-PER-DOLLAR,
POWER-PER-DOLLAR OR STYLE-PER-DOLLAR VALUE THAN OTHER
WAGONS. SEE THEM ALL--FROM THE CRISP SMARTNESS OF THE
FALCON WAGON, ALL THE WAY UP TO THE INIMITABLE FORD
COUNTRY SQUIRE.

FOR PURE PLEASURE, SEE THE SENSATIONAL NEW THUNDERBIRDFOR
1961, UNIQUE IN ALL THE WORLD--A CAR THAT BECOMES MORE
DESIRABLE EACH MONTH AS ;THE IMITATIONS COME OUT, AS OTHER
CARS COPY ITS FAMOUS ROOFLINE, ITS FOUR-SEAT INTERIOR,
ITS CONSOLE-YET MISS THE SECRET OF THE THUNDERBIRD SPIRIT.

THE THING THAT SELLS FORDS IS SIMPLY THE PRODUCT-IT
STARTS WHEN YOU TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT FEATURES OTHER CARS
ARE ONLY DREAMING ABOUT, IT GETS CONVINCING WHEN YOU SEE
AND FEEL THE HONEST QUALITY OF ITS CRAFTSMANSHIP--AND IT'S
ALL OVER WHEN YOU LEARN THE PRICE.

THOSE THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS WHO BOUGHT A GLITTERING NEW
FORD EVERY SIX SECONDS IN MAY REALLY DID KNOW SOMETHING
YOU SHOULD KNOW--THAT NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP IN, SWAP,
AND SAVE PLENTY AT YOUR FORD DEALER'S SWAPPING BEE.

Five Forest Fires


Reported In May
J. H. Pope, dispatcher for the
Florida Forest 'Service at the White
,City tower reports that during the
month of May, -five forest fires
burned 69.7 acres in Gulf county.
During the month of May in 1960,
four fires burned 40 acres.
Thus far this year, 16 wildfires
have burned 121.3 acres in Gulf
County. During the same period in
1960, 18 fires burned 161.8 acres.
Pope says that three of the fires
during May were incendiary fires.


Oo N r during the yeav, 13 ot the
16 forest fires could have been pre
vented if the :proper steps for pre-
caution 'had been taken.
The forest service asks *that all
of us be careful with fire in the
woods. If you care to burn near or
in the woods, the forest services
urges you to call them for protec-
tion, measures.

WHAT IS CEREBRAL
PALSY?
Cerebral palsy is a type of
paralysis affecting control of the
motor system of the body.. It
is usually caused by injury to
the brain during birth or defects
of the brain before birth and is
generally discovered at birth or
during infancy.
Parents may note that the
child, is slow in development or
that he does not move the in-
volved limbs. When the child
starts to walk, cerebral palsy
can usually be clearly observed.
The condition may be treated
with varying degrees of success,
although it requires a compli-
cated long-range program em-
ploying the cooperation of many
skilled persons and the parents.
The physical therapist attempts
to stretch tight muscles to pre-
vent contracture or shortening
and to re-educate muscles to im-
prove functional activities. The
occupational therapist teaches
the patient self-care such as
feeding and dressing, and gives
training in hand-function. The
speech therapist gives training
in proper speech.
Braces, crutches, and other
forms W support are often pre-
scribed to assist the child in get-
ting about. In the' spastic type
of cerebral palsy, surgery is
sometimes necessary and the
orthopedic surgeon is frequently
called when deformities appear.
The attitude of the parents, be
they over-protective or indiffer-
ent, and the family situation and
environment, all have a bearing
on the treatment program. If
the child is rated high in physi-
cal and mental capacities, the
vocational prospects are usually
good. With increasing interest
and carefully 'planned programs
and facilities, the outlook for
children afflicted with cerebral
palsy is improving constantly.

No housewife is a stranger
to dust and dirt an enemy
that confronts her every time

Wilbur Gage, president of

Now then, why divide Port St. Joe North and South
instead of East and West as has been the rule in the past?
Very simple, to give the two Commissioners from the Port

missioners duties takes up where the city limits ends. If
his district were in a city corporate limits, his responsibility
to a people or an area would be nil.
Take for instance the area now served by Commissioner
Jimmy Greer. His entire population responsibility lies within
the city limits of Port St. Joe and Kenney's Mill. While his
population is adequate insofar as population goes, his work-
load potential is far less than the average.
We feel that the Jaycee plan is the best that can be work-
ed out taking into consideration the law for equal distribution
of population and the unwritten law for equal distribution of
the work load. The biggest headache in re-districting Gulf
County is the fact that Port St. Joe lies in one small seg-

.says a report from -the Florida
State Board of Health.
Statistics were gathered during
a toy accident survey conducted in
June and 'October, 1960, and Feb-
ruary, 1961, under the co-sponsor-
ship 'of the State Board of Health,
.the National 'Safety Council, and
'the Florida chapter of 'the Ameri-
can Academy of Pediatrics, with
the assistance of the state's 20 Poi-
son Control Centers and the Leon-
Gadsden-Liberty-Wakulla and Jef-
ferson County Medical Society. In
'these five counties all accidents oc-
curring to any child under 16, and
attended iby a physician, were re-
ported by the survey. In the rest
of 'the state the figures cover only
those cases handled .by the pedia-
tricians and the hospitals with poi-
son control centers.
The 'total number of accidents
reported was 748. Nearly twice as
many boys as girls were involved,
and authorities expressed no sur-
prise. The girls reached their ac-
cident peak at about age six, and
then showed a decided drop in in-
cidence. The boys held a fairly
steady rate until age 13.

the law-three districts will dip into the city limits of Port
St. Joe. We won't go for this. But, we will continue to sup-
port equal representation of the population of the county.
The Star thinks that the five county commissioners have
each made a good choice in a representative from their partic-
ular area. We feel all will be fair in their study of the situa-
tion. And we trust the County Commission will: give a sym-
pathetic ear to the recommendations of the committee. If
they do not, then the committee has wasted its time.

,third of all the accidents, with the
house 'mentioned next most fre-
quently for 18 percent. Almost as-
many occurred on school and play
grounds, while the street and side-
walk were named in only 12 per-
cent of the mishaps.
The bicycle was the most fre-
quent single toy or object involved
in the accidents, being mentioned
in more than a fifth of all reports.
All play ground and sports equip-
ment together accounted for almost
a third. Items that are definitely
not toys, such as broken glass, tin
cans, tools and lawn mowers, were
implicated in a fifth of the ac-
counts. Commercial toys, 'wagons,
etc. showed up in all percent of the
reports, while the traditional
"sticks and stones" were named in
leas than two percent.
'Exactly one third of 'the accidents
occurred about the head and 'face,
and more than half involved ithe
arms and legs. Well over half the
*mishaps occurred as falls, with
most ,of ,the remainder being clas.si-
fied as "struck .by or striking
against" the offending object. Less
than one percent wele burns' and
scalds, and 'there were no electrical
accidents reported at all.-
Significantly, the figures seem-
ed to show. that the day of the
week, the 'difference 'between sum-
mer and winter, and school month
versus vacation month were of no
consequence to the children involv-
ed in the accidents. Examined in
the light of these factors the fig-
ures showed 'almost an .even spread.
Dr. Marvin Lee Weil, Miami,
chairman of the accident preven-
tion committee of the Florida chap-
ter of the AAP, .stated: "This is
striking confirmation of the need
for an increased awareness of
-these accident hazards. The Flor-
ida Pediatric Society will immed-
iately devote its attention to this
aspect of the accident prevention
,problem, and strongly urges all
appropriate groups to promote the
safe use of bicycles and sports and
playground equipment."
Dr. Weil concluded, "It is quite
,apparent that older children and
adults supervising or engaged in
recreational activities should be
well grounded in first aid proce-
dures."
