Travel To Bonifay
By WILL 1. RAMSEY
The Port St. Joe 'Sharks conin-

ing highly-rated Blountstown 39 to
25 last Friday night. It was their
fiffth win third in a row .
for the Sharks and the first loss of
the season for the Blountstown
team. The Sharks played a most
unique brand of football. They had
possession of 'the ball only eight
times during the game and scored
seven times, mostly on long run-
The lSharks started the scoring
bee on the opening kick-off. Nel-
son Hall turned on the steam and
outran the opponents for a ,beauti-
ful 90 yard touchdown jaunt with
Fensom adding the extra jaunt,
The Sharks really broke loose in
the second quarter, scoring three
TD's. Boyer took a pass from Lar-
ry Davis and .romped 60 yards to
paydirt. Then the next time around
Chesley Fensom bulled 'his way 10
yards for a score. The next time
the Sharks had possession of the
ball, Davis connected with Boyer
with another aerial 'that covered
44 yards and a TD. Blountstown
scored twice in this period, both
on five yard runs by quarterback
Jerry Gates. The score -at halftime
was Sharks 27, Blountstown 14.
Chesley Fensom tallied the only
Shark score in the third period
with a seven yard plunge off tack-
le. Blountstown's Gates also scor-
ed on a 10 yard run.
In the fourth period Nelson Hall
broke loose again for a 60 yard
TD jaunt, the kind that he is be-
'coming so famous for in Northwest

Walter Dodson, President of the
Florida National Bank at Port !St.
Joe ?told his Kiwanis colleagues
some of the facts about the banking
business, Dodson said there is a
shortage of young men going into
banking. He explained this as a
result of former practices of not
'paying bank employees a fair wage.
He declared that the wages in bank-
ing are getting better, and young
men 'desiring to enter the banking
field will now have a good future
in store for them.
In commenting on the local bank
being converted to a National Bank
Dodson said the conversion was
made with no inspection whatever

ing was held at the ehattahoochee
High School. Registration began at
10:00 a..m. The first general busi-
ness meeting was held in the high
school auditorium. At 11:30 the
meeting was recessed for a 20 min-
ute' coke break. When the meeting
reconvened ten of the delegates to
t.e last year's, Honor Society
State Convention presented a pan-
el discussion on the highlights of
the convention. The delegates then
gathered in the various rooms of
the school to participate in the dis-
cussion groups which were as (f.i-

At 1:00 p.m. the convention re-
cessed for lunch which was served
by the Women's Club, of Chattahoo-
chee at the Women's Club. The
speaker at the luncheon was Dr.
Ned Haven, president of Chipola
Dr. Haven's talk centered on the
responsibility of young Americans
to scholarship and leadership. He
said, in regard to leadership, that
acceptance delegates authority, the
basis of leadership, and that good
leadership consisted of good fel-
lowship at proper times. Dr. Haven
told the convention that young peo-
ple must take time to think and to
laugh and to serve.

restrictions were so stringent on chee High School and
the banking business now that no
private banks will be formed in the
future. Just a few years ago, an in-
dividual with $25,000 for a charter
could go into the banking business.
As a result of these changes and
regulations, it is almost impossible
to lose funds through bank failure.
The local bank, as most other
banks are, is covered by Federal

Mrs. Haye- .;.-ini; .Ed' Florist.
_- Before' .or, i ,, iu hi- .rr-ea,' Mrs
Hays was in the floral business in
Birmingham, Alabama, for which
her background in the study of de-
signing art and decorating made
her a natural.
After Mrs. Hays was married she
gave up her career as a home econ-

being away from home and out
of town a great part of her time.
It was then that she became inter-

she found not too different from
other designing in clothing and ap-

Owens Says "Unnatural Acts"
Discovered In Wewa School
Tells Rotary Closer
Supervision Is Needed
Thomas A. Owens, Superinten-
dent of Public Instruction for Gulf
County spoke to the Rotary Club
last Thursday concerning recent
abnormal sexual activities inves-
tigations in Gulf County School.
Owens said that irregularities
were present but that they were
localized in the Wewahitchka
Owens told the Club that the
parties involved and been discov-
ered and would be dealt with. He
also stated that complete investi-
gations had been made in both the
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka High
Schools for other abnormal activi-
ties but none were found.
Owens said that the citizens of
Gulf County should not let the
case of abnormal behaviour found
in Wewahitchka evolve into a
"witch hunt". He emphasized that
competent state investigators had
ferreted out the unsavoury activi-
ties and had established the limits
of these activities. He urged the
Length with the investigator as to
the cause of these activities and
found that in most cases they re-
sulted from a lack of parental love.
To 'prevent such activities creep-
ing into the lives of your children
Owens urged that parents know
the background of the friends of
their children; know where they go
and place a curfew on their nights
cut; do not be afraid to say "no"
to a child's request that is not the
desirable activity for him; have
rules and stick to them. Owens em-
phasized that in spite of the so-
called "new rules" of raising chil-
dren through "understanding", old
fashioned good morals have never
changed and anything that com-
promises these morals is bad for
the children and can lead to such
disasters as have been uncovered,
Owens reminded the Rotary
members that children are given
us as a gift by God into our cus-
tody. What they become is our gift

"He who guards his mouth preserves his life; he who

May we comment briefly on our recent trip to the At-
lanta Ready-To-Wear Show held at hte fabulous new Mer-
chandise Mart on Peachtree Street. It was by far the lar-
gest and most spectacular Merchandise Show we've ever
attended ... there's nothing to match it in New York City
and it's a great service to all independent merchants to be
able to view the nations outstanding lines, yes, hundreds
and hundreds under one roof. It also means better service
and savings to you customers who desire the newest and
the best at moderate prices. We were able to get several
interesting Polaroid pictures of the building, selling booths
and etc. Will be glad to show them to you on your request.
Mrs. B. was on the run for four days while Barbara
and the writed posed as tourists, looking over some of At-
lanta's famous spots and having some pleasant and inter-
esting experiences. We showed up at the Mart to check on
Mrs. B. now and then. It was interesting to look around in
some of the city's well-known stores and when we com-
pared prices with St. Joe it was most revealing. Yes, we
are more sold on Boyles Values than ever before. You'll
be hearing quite a lot about these Holiday Offerings during
the next sixty days. In checking over our orders we note
that more than 65 firms are represented. only the top
ones in specific lines. We feel this shopping method will
prove to be much to your advantage and enable us to render
improved service in many ways. New merchandise will be
rolling in this week. You are cordially invited to come in
and look it over. You are the final judge and your opinion
is highly valued. There's much more to tell but we must
-stop-and look for customers! Bless their hearts!

Hi Neighb .or I .....
When you work h.i- f:-- years, making endless
sacrifices, saving every dollar you could to someday
own your own business, you are certainly going to be
more grateful for the patronage of your customers than p
if you operated a store for someone else. /
In the majority of instances, hard work. privation and
struggle is the story behind your IGA store owner.
He appreciates your business because of the long.uphill
fight he had before he was in a position to get
-. your business. Therefore your retailer asks that
vou make the "Total Test" in his store to prove
to yourself, that you save MORE with IGA's
Every Day Low Prices. The true story lies
at the bottom of each tape you receive.

In changing over' to a National

the Port St.' Joe blahk had to set
aside $250,000.00 as a reserve, in
cash for any unforeseen emergen-
cies. At the time -of transition, the
bank was operating with only $250,-

The maximum loan that the Port
St. Joe bank can make to any one
Individual is $35,000. Dodson said
larger loans can be handled, by
farming portions of the loan out to
other members of the Florida Bank
Speaking for a few moments of
national disaster, Dodson said that
new bank -notes (paper money)
have been printed and 'put in stra-

Social Security Now
Pays More Benefits
.!] . .,
Beginning this year, many So-
cial Secutity beneficlares- who work
will 'be 'able to increase their part-
time zor full-time-earnings and still
be paid some of thbir Social Secur-
ity benefits, according- to John V.
Carey, District Manager of the Pan-
ama City, Florida, -'Social. -Securit
Beneficiaries who earn $1200 or
less in a year will -still *get their
full Social Security checks for all
12 months of the year. But, begin-
nnig for 1961, a person earning be-.
tween $1200 and $1700 in a year:
will have only $1 in benefits with-
held for each $2 earned over' $1200.
When earnings are more than
$1700 a year, $1 in benefits will be
withheld for each $1 that earnings
-go over $1700.
To show the advantages of the
new provision, Mr. Carey cited the
example of 'the 68 e-#r old worker
who receives Social Security bene-
fits of $150 a month -for himself
and his 66 year old wife. Beginning
in 1961, this man can earn $3200 a
year and he and his wife will still
,get at least $50 in. benefits for the
year. If he earns only :$2100, -they
can receive $1150 in benefits, giv-
ing them an income from combined
earnings and benefits of $3250 a
He also indicated that some -peo-
ple who applied for their benefits
in years past may still not be aware
that -they could collect some pay-
ments under certain provisions
which have been in effect for some
tnme. One of these provisions per-
mits a beneficiary, regardless of
his total earnings for the year, to
receive his -full benefit check for
any month in which he does not
earn more than $100 or do substan-
tial work in his own business.
The other provides that begin-
ning with the month of -his 72nd
birthday, a bneeficlary may be
paid all his benefits no matter how
much he earns.
