GOODBYE, MR. JOE
A statement lAde by Rev. John
Carmichael best: sums up the life
of departed Mayor J. L. Sharit ..
"He preached his own funeral".
There was no need to invent fine
sounding words or deeds for Mr.
Joe. His actions, abilities and deeds
furnished more food -for fond recol-
lection than Port St. Joe will ever
be able to recall.
We believed that everybody knew
that Mr. Sharit was a man of ac-
tion. He got things done. He was 'a-
man of action who "would preach
his own funeral" if any man could.,
But, it wasn't until the last few
days that we learned how generally
well-known his deeds, of helping
his fellow man" were. This is be-
cause, at one time or another, he
has helped a great many of the
people of Port St. Joe both collec-
tively and individually.
We were especially 'fond of Mr.-
Sharit ,because of a favor he offered
to do for us 16 years ago--a favor
he had probably forgotten. '
At this time we were graduating
from high school, and even then
had a .bad leg. Mr. Sharit had a job
in the AN Railroad office he
thought we could handle. So he.
sent for us to make. the. offer-
But, thanking him for his offer, we
chose to follow printing.
At the time, 'we didn't even know
that he knew us. only a kid at
the time but he knew, and he.
was concerned -enough about our
future to offer us a job we could do.
We appreciated it and will never
Since that time, Mr. Sharit has
done this person 'and many other
persons many favors and never
once expected anything in return.
We'll miss him personally and
we know that the City will miss

A 9-month-old baby was burned
to death last Friday afternoon in
a house at 270-A Avenue. B in
North Port St. Joe.
The child, Reginald Ward, col-
ored, was lying on a bed near a

were in the -house at the time it
caught fire, and rescue of the baby
was impossible when the fire was
According to the Port St. Joe

was afire all over when he called

The fire department began fight-

the flames in. the room where the
baby was. Assistant Chief R. -I.

Talk of further remodeling of
the Gulf County courtroom was,
aired by the County Commission at
their regular meeting Tuesday of
this week. The remodeling, if per-
formed, would provide, several new

Judge Warren Fitzpatrick enter-
ed a statement to the county board
that conditions were crowded on
the second floor of the courthouse
and asked that something be done
to alleviate them.
Some time back the Board had
entertained notions of remodeling
the second story of the courthouse.
The remodeling consisted of lower-
ing the ceiling (which, has since
been done), air conditioning the
courtroom (which has since been
done), and cutting up' a portion of
the courtroom into smaller rooms.
Judge Fitzpatrick told the Com-
mission tha. a combination hearing
and Grand Jury room was needed,
along with four witness rooms. The
Judge asserted that the use of the
courtroom- now is. becoming con-
gested with makeshift facilities be-
coming necessary, in many of the
Tells Board More
The Board again revived the no-
tion of dividing the back portion
oZ the courtroom into several small
rooms to take care of the situation.
Talk Tuesday was along the lines
of making two permanent rooms
and one large room with a folding
door that could divide the large
room into two smaller rooms. The
intentions are to use the larger
room for hearings, Grand Jury
meetings and County Board meet-
The Board didn't take any action
on the request of Fitzpatrick, but
they agreed to study again plans
drawn up in the past when the work
was 'first contemplated.
Civil Defense Director
The County Board discussed the
possibility of hiring a full time Civ-
il Defense Director or a Deputy
Director. It has been pointed out
to the C.ounty Board by CD Direct-
or Bob Sidwell, that the county
can participate in Federal match-
ing funds to pay the salary of such
a director. Also the same sources
will pay one half of the county CD
expenses should a full time man
be hired, according to Sidwell.
The Board instructed Sidwell to
bring to them more definite data
on. the position hiring -a full timu.
director or, deputy would place the
county, before they made any deei-
salon on thesimatter.
The Board unanimously. posed
a resolu!onr hpnoring the late J.

heavy wrapping paper, sturdy cor-
rugated cartons, strong cord and
adhesive tape. Remember also, that
you can include your Christmas
card or letter inside your gift
packages if you will add the ap-
propriate First Class mail stamps
to the postage for the package it-
Stock up on postage stamps-By
doing this soon, you'll save lots of
time that might be spent standing
in line later on. When you go to
the Post Office, ask for a supply
of labels which read, "All For Lo-.
cal Delivery" and "All For Out of-
Town Delivery," so that before you
-mail your Christmas cards you can
sort them into two groups, with
the addresses all facing one way,
thus expediting delivery."
First Class postage is best for
mailing your Christmas cards. All
cards sent by 4c postage may in-
clude a personal handwritten mes-
sage, and they'll be forwarded or
returned, if that becomes neces-
sary. Be sure to .put your return
address on your Christmas card
envelopes. It's socially correct to
do this, and enables both you and

Predicting that this year's Christ-

the Postmaster pointed out the im-
portance of planning your Christ-
mas mailings now to avoid a lot
of headaches when the Christmas
rush comes in earnest.
He said further, that through the
excellent cooperation of the public
during recent Christmas seasons,
he has been able to get all of the

Should Start To
Read If Capable
The urge to start reading
too early, has several roots. Prin-
cipals must bear a large share of
the blame. Teaches must also bear
a large share of the blame.
Some fivre-year-olds are really
ready to read, and by all means
they .should. But most fives are
not and no readiness books or
workbooks or drill on phonics can
ever make them ready. But there
is one good way to teach these
children to read. There is a way
'that fits their five-year-old readi-
ness. There is a way that is right
for them now, 'and that fits beauti-
fully (and helpfully and cmofort-
ably) into the life that lies ahead.
Fives need books, not work-
books. Fives need to be immersed
in all the wonderful stories that
have been written for them. They
need to hear and know and love 1
the literature for their .age. Most
fives cannot read, but all fives can
listen-and they love to. Most fives
cannot learn to read books, but
all fives can learn to love books.
This is a crucial step in the whole
,process and an appropriate step
for five-year-olds. There is no point
in knowing how to read if one nev-
er does. The secret to exercising
the skill is laerning early that
books are a wonderful source of
joy and information.
Be sure you buy your child some
books for Christmas.
We can stress the importance of
a storytime at home, each day,
Early For Christmas' Campaign a
big success," he continued, 'if we'll
all take a personal responsibility
in planning our Christmas mailings
so that cards and gift packages
going to most distant points are
mailed *as soon as .possible. Christ-
mas packages for local destinations
should be mailed ,by December 15,

cards for friends and relatives in

For those who might have
thought that the Commercial Lea-
gue was about to have a new lead-
er, read slowly. Costin's put the
brakes on all -first place seekers
las week by rolling over Michigan
Chemical. They rolled their way
into a four game lead over Michi-
gan Chemical and that is just the
beginning. They also rolled high
team game for the entire City As-
sociation and high team series for
their League. Costin's rolled games
of 858, 924 and 756 for a series of
2538. Jake Koller sneaked in as
high man but barely ahead of team-
mates Wayne Smith and Tommy
Pridgeon. Jake rollel 533 and
Wayne and Tommy had 523 and
521. Jimmy Costin rolled his high
this year of 493 and Waring Mur-
dock pulled through with low series
of 468, but Waring had high game
of 207. Ray Medlin rolled his best
to stop the wild. Costin's but his
two games of 180 and 178 just
slowed them down a. bit.
Philco put the skids to Vitro's
comeback by setting them back
three points. Philco took advantage
of Vitro's had .night and took the
first two games and then stayed
close enough the third game to sal-
vage total pins. Bob Shaw rolled
a low 431 to let Medlin and Koller
ease past for high average honors.
Ron Pendergraft raised some eye-
brows with his 540. Melton led the
Tech Reps from Philco with 488.
SJPC Office Staff came through
with three big points from the fast
rising St. Joe Motors. "Bo" Bray
led the losers and John Howard
teamed with Tom Ford to be the
big guns for the Paper Co.
Floyd Chevrolet let Florida Na-
tional Bank know how four points
look going away and swept the ser-
ies behind the arm of George
Small. Geogre had 440 to lead the
team but Jim Powell came through
with 357 to help the cause. Yeager
of the Bank rolled a 606 in the de-
feat. Standings are as follows:

On alleys one and two, Pate's
took on the mighty Woolford team.
In the first game the Pate's men
lost the game by only one pin. But
in the second and third games the
Woolford team again hit hard and
took all four points. Grover Hol-
land was high man for Pate's with
a 415. Hammer Huffman pounded
in two big games with 193, 212 and
152 for a total 577. Kerrigan, after
a bad game of 145 came back with
190 and 182 for 517 for the night.
An alleys three and four, Py-
lant's took on the second place
Pat's Bar team but was only able
to take one game and Pat's took
the other three. Again Bobby Shaw
was the high man for the Pylant's
team with 462, but it was just not
enough. Mobley and Pendergraft
had 457 for Pat's as the high men.
The number five and six alleys
saw the Custom Shop take on the
Phillip's "66" men. Custom Shop,
with only three men and two blinds
had a 2301 total while Phillip's
could only roll 2233 thus Custom
took three .points behind the 528
series of Billy Joe Richards. Phil-
lip's rolling only four men had a

Mrs. U. Savings Bonds of 1962
Blonde, blue-eyed Mrs. Emily Terrall, of St. Helens, Oregon,
is the new "Mrs. United States Savings Bonds of 1962." As a
Treasury volunteer Goodwill Ambassador, she will tour the nation
during the coming year in the promotion of Savings Bonds. The
37-year-old housewife won the title from among 51 state con-
testants for the "Mrs. America" title in competition just closed at
Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where she appeared as "Mrs. Oregon."
The Terrall family is no stranger to Savings Bonds. Husband of
the new "Mrs. Savings Bonds" is an industrial engineer, and buys
bonds regularly on the Payroll Savings Plan. Mrs. Terrall, an
alumna of the University of Washington, has been active in the
PTA-sponsored school stamp program. And needless to say, their
three sons---aged 7, 9 and 12-are all avid stamp buyers. Mrs.
Terrall is tht fifth winner of the "Mrs. Savings Bonds" title. She
succeeds Mrs. Vivian Ackerman, of Tucson, Arizona.

THE STAR. Port St. Joe. Fla. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1961
Costin's beat Woolword's by only
55 pins total. They had a close first
game which ended up being the
most deciding game.
Costin's won the first by 35 pins
and the second by 17 pins. The last
game went right down to the last
frame with Costin's coming out on
the top by three pins. The match
was very exciting, and we hope
there will be more in the future.
Wayne Smith rolled a high for
Costin's of 515, followed by Jake
Kohler with 497. Jimmy Costin had
486 and Tommy Pridgeon rolled a
453. Waring Murdock ran into
splits the first two games but rolled
out a 434 for the winners. Don
Huffman led all with his 560 for
Woolford's. A little way back was
Bob Kerrigan with 506. Boyer was
next with a 444 followed by Gay
and Peeler with 437 and 383. Peel-
er seemed to be trying to make
all splits as he had low game of
the night at 111. Most important
of all it gave the two leagues a

place them in cold water. Be sure
that the steaming water does not
damage the bracts.
An alternate method of halting
the oozing sap is to singe the cut
ends of the stem over a flame for
a couple of seconds and then place
the stems -in cold water. For best
results and longer lasting beaut,
cut the poinsettias about 18 hours
*before they are to be used in an
arrangement. Store the cut "flow-
ers" in a cool, draft-free place dur-
ing the waiting stage.
Poinsettias, like other ornamen-
tals, have their plagues and ail-
ments. A scab is often a problem in
some aeas-especially on double

prune and burn the affected

The--First Methodist: Church of
Port St. Joe has established a me-
morial fund to. be known as the J.
L. Sharit Memorial Fund, accord-
ing to an announcement made by
the Official Board and the Pastor,
Rev. J. C. Carmichael. Mr. Sharit
had long been an active member
of First. Methodist Ghurch and he
was largely responsible for the
moving of the Church to its present
location. The people of Port St. Joe
are aware of the countless hours
and the strenuous efforts he put
forth on behalf of the beautiful
building now occupied by the
A committee has .been appointed

,t Xmas Seals
On Back of Mail
If you use Christmas stickers or
seals, put them on the back of
yc.ur Christmas cards and pack-
ages so that they will not conflict
with the address on the front.
:Make sure that correct postage is
firmly affixed to each card and
package. When mailing gifts, it's a
gLod idea to. place a piece of trans-
pamrEnt cellophane tape over the
address 'portion of thle label to
prevent defacing it in transit. And
a-'.'.ays be sure, of course, to in-
clude the recipient's -full name,
street address, city, 7?-.ne' and state.
Because the entire; Christmas
mailing period is primarily a bat-
tie against time, "Do it now" is the
slogan from here on in. Don't put
off your Christmas mailings while
you still have ample time because
this means that dreaded pile-ups
will occur at the Post Office, caus-
ing unavoidable slowdowns in de-
liveries as the holiday approaches.
