Department In Marvin Ave. Brush Fire
A burning stump caused the Port
St. Joe Volunteer Fire Department
to work 'the entire week end on a
brush fire on Marvin Avenue be-
tween 16th and 20th Streets.
Due .to the extremely dry weather
fire from the stump being burned
traveled through the mucky ground
and came to life in the swamp near
the drain ditch running parallel to
Marvin Avenue and first called the
department to duty Saturday after-
noon. The fire department stayed
on the blaze more or less continu-
ously until Sunday afternoon at
Again at 10:30 a.m. Monday the
volunteers were called out by
the same blaze.
As of Wednesday afternoon this
fire was still burning down in the
muck. The city has taken over the
responsibility of seeing that the
b'aze 'doesn't spread, and nothing
can be done about putting it com-
pletely out until it rain-,. The city
has already spent over T500.00 in
water and time to extinguish the
blaze, to .no avail.
Fire Chief Charles Wall reminds
the citizens of Port St. Joe that in
such areas, the .muck will 'burn for
days when a forest fire gets out.

Taunton said he thought "the
government owes us a true line
from the north end of the county
through to the south end".
The county had contacted J. B.
Hathaway to make the survey for
a 'true line" but Hathaway wrote
the Board that he wasn't interested.
The Commission then instructed

The City of Port St. Joe had writ-

Commissioner Greer suggested to

siderable discussion, the Board
agreed to present this request to
the SRD. The Board made a similar
request several years ago which
was denied due to the proximity of
the Mexico Beach wayside park. It
will be pointed out by the Board
that the Mexico Beach facilities
are now overcrowded.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Flortod
THURSDAY, MAY 24, 1962
NEW ORLEANS, La.-All phas-
es of the Spring 1962 Logistical-ov-
er-the -Shore (LOTS) Exercise
held 'his year by the U. S. Army
Transportation Terminal Command
Gulf, on St. Joseph's Spit, 2.8 water
miles frcm Port St. Joe was closed
'out on May 22.
A convoy, consisting of the main
body of the 394'h Transportation
Battalion (Terminal) returned to
Camp Leroy Johnson here on April
30. Lieut. Col. Thomas G. Morehead,
battalion commander, stated upon
the 394 h's arrival, "I am most
pleased with the performance of
my battalion and other camp units
during the exercise. The terrain,
being sandy and rugged and cov-
ered with dense undergrowth, cre-
a'ed an excellent tactical problem.
In the amphibious phases, high surf
and swells presented a realistic sit-
uation-the type of situation Camp
Leroy Johnson troops would have
to content with an actually unload-
ing military cargo under combat
conditions where no fixed pier fa-
cilities are present."
In the returning main body of
the camp's permanently stationed
394th Battalion were Headquarters
and Headquarters Detachment and
four terminal service companies-
the 71st Transportation Company,
the 119th Transportation Company,
the 512th Transportation Company,
and the 569th Transportation Com-
pany. Commanding these units in
the convoy were, respectively, 1st.
Lieut. Lawrence J. Ernst; Capt.
McErvin Howard; Capt. Frank
Francois; Capt. Thomas A. Ford,
Jr.; and 'Capt. Edgar G. Hamilton.
The main body of the 354th
Transportation Battalion (Termi-
nal) began moving back on May 14
when the first contingent, consist-
ing of the 318th Transportation
Company (Terminal Service) and
the 489th Transportation Company
(Terminal 'Service), returns to the
camp. Two recalled U. S. Army Re-
serve units, the 318th is from Gulf-
port, Miss., and is commanded by
Capt. Raymond L. Shields, while
Oapt. Fleetwood C. Flyithe com-
man'ds the 489th from Pensacola.
'On May 18 the second contingent'
of the main body of the 354th
Transportation Battalion returned
to Camp Leroy Johnson. The con-
voy, led by Lieut. Col. Crescent A.
Ragona, consisted of Headquarters
and Headquarters Detachment and
two terminal service companies-
the 238th Transportation Company
and the 453rd Transportation Com-
pany. All three are 'recalled USAR
units. HDD is from Brooklyn, N. Y.
and is commanded 'by Capt. Clar-
ence J. Burger! the 238th hails from
Magnolia, Ark., and is under the
command of Capt. Charles E.
Downs, while the 453rd, perman-
ently home-stationed in Charleston,
S. C., is led by Capt. Russell Brown.
May 22 saw the return to Camp
Leroy Johnson of all rear parties
of the 354th Transportation Battal-
ion, as well as the 562,nd Transpor-
tation Company (Staging Area) and
two units of the 394th Transporta-
tion Company (Amphibious Truck)
and the U. S. Army Transportation
Floating Craft Training Detach-
ments. This movement was in two
contingents. One was convoyed
back in a motor-march, 'while the
other was returned by water, via
the Intracoastal Waterway.
The UTSATFCTD is commanded
'by 2nd Lieut. Aloysius E. Stuardi.
Heading the 458th is Capt. Raymond

day LOTS Exercise involved about
2700 -troops from Camp Leroy John-
son and support units.
During the exercise the Camp Le-
roy Johnson troops underwent in-
tensive training in stevedoring ac-
tivities; handling of eargo from
ship to shore and over the beach;
cargo documentation; cargo lifting
and stowage aboard vessels; mov-
ing and transporting of cargo in-
command of Capt. Clarence Young.
The 515th Truck Company from
Fort Benning, Ga., and commanded
by Capt. Billy L. Story has lent
constant support to the 'Camp Le-
roy Johnson troops, both at the biv-
land via landing and harbor craft,
amphibious trucks (DUKW's) and
barges (100-ton BARC's), rough-ter-
rain and regular forklifts, mobile
and crawler cranes and trucks. Ad-
ditionally, all camp units under-
went their annual Army training
tests to determine their training
efficiency, combat-readiness. Range
firing was also provided, with the

National School Board?
The danger flags go up, and not a few hackles rise
with them, at thought of a new proposal for establishment
of a national boaid of education. The proposal was made at
a House. subcommittee hearing by Dr. James E. Allen, Jr.,
New York state's commissioner of education.
Dr. Allen is not unaware of the possible dangers in
such a national board. He met the question by raising it
himself but then declaring that the proposed group could
"set broad national goals for education and influence the
states in a very sound way toward them without directing
them." The disclaimer is not wholly convincing.
It may be true, as Commissioner Allen told Congress,
that there is need for "a reorganization of the administra-
tive and policy-making structure of education at the fed-
eral level." It may be true, as he contends, that the United
States Office of Education presently lacks "the independence,
status, continuity and influence which it must have to pro-
vide leadership and over-all direction to American education
consistent with and vital to our national purposes."
But before the Office of Education's influence is extend-
ed, and particularly before such a thing as a national board
of education is established, American citizens had better do
some hard thinking about the kind and amount of national
leadership they want in education. Even advocates of great-
ly increased federal aid to education may balk at the idea
of "over-all direction" emanating from Washington.

A Communist Surveys the
Christian World's "Threat"
(From PEACE and LIBERTY
,French Communist newspaper)
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a much more powerful
weapon for the renewal of society than is our Marxist doc-
trine. All the same it is we who will finally beat you. We
are only a handful and you Christians are numbered by the
millions. But if you remember the story of Gideon and his
300 companions you will understand why I am right. .
We Communists do not play with words. Of our salaries
.and wages we keep only what is strictly necessary and v
give the rest for propaganda purposes. To this propaganda
we also consecrate all our free time and part of our holidays.
You Christians, however, give only a little time anf"
hardly any money for the spreading of the Gospel of Christ.
How can anyone believe in the supreme value of the Gospel
if you do not practice it? If you do not spread it? And if
you sacrifice neither time nor money for it?
Believe me, it is we who will win, for we believe in our
Communist message and we are ready to sacrifice every-
thing, even our lives. But you, you Christians, are afraid to
soil your hands.
It takes an enemy pretty sure of himself to tell his ene-
my how he can be beaten. But then, if indications of the
present trend of mankind in the "Christian" world are any
criteria, the Communist has little to worry about. The so-
called "Christian" nations seem to be spending all their ener-
gies and resources trying to find any other means of beating
-Communism than the means outlined by the Communists
themselves. It is a pity, but it appears as if the free world
will continue to bankrupt itself trying to break down the
back door to bring their message of democracy and freedom
to the world, when the front door is open.
ANOTHER BILLIE SOL IN THE MAKING
The Government announced this week that they will
remove all of the grain stored in the elevators of Billie Sol
Estes elevators and place it elsewhere.
This has all the ear-marks of creating another Billie Sol
Estes. For after all, won't the storage charges still have to
be paid. Won't a private individual receive these payments?
It would seem that a close look at the "system" that
created the Billie Sol scandal in the first place should be
closely scrutinized before making such a move.
