It has been a good year in Port
St. Joe this year. Perhaps the best
year, as far as business goes, in
the past five years. .
The paper mill has operated at
its best in the past five years dur-
ing the past twelve months. This
has given the people of the City
a fairly steady income over the
This, in turn, has afforded a
healthy atmosphere in the business
activities of the area.
And, it was the first year in
several that not a business has
failed in the City. In fact, some
business expansion has been noted.

Park Service Endorses

Officials Make Tour of Proposed
Park Area On Peninsula Last Week
St. Joseph's Peninsula has re-
ceived enthusiastic endorsement by
Park Service Officials as an out-
standing potential State Park.
Wednesday of last week, Jack
Bradley, Tallahassee administra-
tive assistant, and Claude Willough-
by, district supervisor, inspected
the 2,000 acre tract along with
Annual Watch Night services
will be held this year in the au-
ditorium of the First Pentecost-
al Holiness Church on the corner
of Garrison Avenue and 20th St.
The annual services are spon-
sored by the Gulf County Minis-
The services will begin at
11:15 p.m. Monday night, with
Mrs. J. A. McGraw playing the
organ prelude at the organ.
Congregational singing will be
under the direction of Tommy
Members of the Ministerial
Alliance appearing on the pro-
gram will be as follows: Rev. J.
A. Blackwell, Pastor of the Naz-
arene Church, giving the Call to
Worship; Rev. W. G. Mizelle,
Pastor Highland View Assembly
of God Church, leading the Re-
sponsive Reading; Rev. J. C.
Odum, pastor, Long Avenue
Baptist Church, lead in prayer;
Rev. S. H. Maxwell, pastor, White
City Baptist Church will deliver
the sermon and Rev. Joel S. Mc-
Graw, pastor of the host church
will lead the benediction.
Everyone is invited to attend
these Watch Night services to
greet the new year with prayer
Jesse Stone, of Port St. Joe, chair-
man of a special committee which
has been appointed to promote this
area as a state park.
The group was driven over the
Peninsula area in a St. Joe Paper
Company Jeep by Henry Maige.
The property borders on St. Jo-
seph's Bay and is owned by the
Federal Government. There are ap-
proximately seven miles of beach
on the Gulf of Mexico and eight
miles on St. Joseph's Bay.
" Bradley indicated that with an
access road and proper planning
and development, the area could
be one of the finest State Parks in
Florida's system. "Potentials for
development for swimming, boat-
ing, fishing, nature trails and over-
night camping are unlimited,"
Supervisor Willoughby told
The Star last week that from
past experience, he would pre-
dict that as many as 1,000 per-
sons a day would use such facili-
ties as were tentatively planned
for the Peninsula park. He also
stated that in a few years, after
the entire program has been de-
veloped, this number would in
all probability be greater. Wil-
loughby went on to say that from
past experience, these people
spend from $12.00 to $18.00 each
day in the community near the
park for food, clothing, services,
The area on St. Joseph's point is
also rich in historical significance.
Ruins of an old Spanish mission
have been located on the point of
the peninsula and, with proper re-
search, could lead to a museum to
depict the story of this area from
the early 1500's.
In this report of the inspection
trip to Park Service Director, Wal-
ter Coldwell, Bradley strongly rec-
ommended that every possible ef-
fort be made to secure this pro-
perty for the State of Florida.
Gulf County Representative Ben
C. Williams, recently requested the
State Road Department to resur-
face State Road 71 between Port
St. Joe and Cypress Creek.
Williams made his request due
to the rough condition of the road
which has since been aggravated
more by freezing and disintigrating
A reply received last week by
Williams from W. T. Mayo, Road
Board member states in part: "The
Road Department realizes that this
work is needed and it has been
placed in the construction budget
so that it can be done when funds
are available. We all know that
this road needs improvement. How-
ever its condition is not too serious
and it can be traveled at the max-
imum legal speed limit in safety.
We have other construction pro-
jects in the budget that are consid-
ered more urgently needed and
due to the uncertainty of the cost
of these projects, I am unable at
this time to schedule a date for
letting a contract on State Road
Mayo further stated that he
hopes it will work out so that this
work can be done before the end
of the budget period.
The County Commission has al-
so requested this road work in its
primary requests from the State
Road Department for the past sev-

Drink and Drive"
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Highway Patrol warned this week
that year-end party goers will in-
crease manyfold their chances of
running into trouble in traffic if
they drink and then drive.
Repeating the age old reminder
that "Whiskey and Gasoline" do
not mix, the patrol says that many
people continue to give it a try
and wind up badly injured or dead
as a result.
"The driving ability of any one
is sharply reduced when he
drinks," declares Patrol Comdr. H.
N. Kirkman, "and no matter how
good a driver you are, or think
you are, you just don't have the
ability to cope with whiskey and
the death-dealing monster called
the automobile at the same time."
One hundred and thirty-one per-
sons died in traffic crashes in Flor-
ida during last December, many
of those deaths occurring in the
final days of 1961.
"Thousands of people from ev-
ery walk of life will attend one
party or another during the fes-
tive closing days of the old year,
"the patrol commander said. "Whe-
ther you are a regular drinker or
or.e of those people who take an
occasional drink, please stay from
behind the wheel. Many lives can
be saved that way, including your

Gardening is like exchanging
gifts. Some folks do it before
Christmas, while store owners
swear that most individuals ex-
change gifts after Christmas.
If you are in the "after class",
then consider a grapevine._
The grapevine is the answer for
gardeners who have a yen for ad-
ding another fruit in the back yard.
An arbor constructed of notched
rosin-rich poles and decked with
split rails will add a homestead
look to your "acres".
If the old-fashioned arbor idea
does not suit your fancy, then
there are a number of modern trel-
lis methods for holding up the
the Caco grape. Blue Lake is a
dark-colored bunch grape. The fruit
have an aromatic, spicy flavor. The
berries are fairly small, but are
well adapted to making fresh juice,
pasteurized juice, jellies and pre-
serves. The tangy grape aroma is
retained in these products.
This new grape is excellent for
the home gardener. However, the
fruit must be processed immediate-
ly upon ripening. Therefore, the
grape is not a commercial fruit.
Blue Lake ripens from June thru
July. Mature fruit remain on the
vine for only a short time and
should be harvested without delay.
The crop can usually be harvested
in two pickings.

After all, he was advised,

There is a way to get along
with the communists.
So strong was the influence
of these advisors on the head

freedom were slaughtered by
the communistic neighbor.
From the people of this great

communistic neighbor was
planning serious trouble. But
in spite of the fact that these
reports came in for many
months, the head of the nation
did nothing about it, because
his influential advisors wanted
him to do nothing about it.
After al, they explained to

pay any attention to the people.
In addition, the communists
made many direct promises
to the head of the great nation,
and gave him assurance that
all intentions were honorable.
There were many people in

influential advisors would ex-

So the great nation blundered
along. In the meantime, its

all median age at death from al-
cohol was 50 years compared with
66 years for all deaths in Florida
during the period.
Williams said "Alcoholism is a
tremendous problem in Florida and
the nation. Aside from the mortal-
ity aspect, an estimated 150,000 al-
coholics in Florida pose a vast tan-
gible and intangible burden on the
state. These people cause loss and
misery in numerous ways: death
and destruction on the highways;
loss of manpower and production
in industry; increased expenditures
for mental hospitals; increased wel-
fare payments to dependent fami-
lies and broken homes and neg-
lected children. It is disturbing to
see that alcoholism is increasing.
Research in the treatment of alco-
holics is making progress but pre-
vention rather than cure must be
the final answer."

Husbands At Party
Fellowship Hall of the Methodist
Church was the setting for a very
gay affair when the Women of the
Eta Upsilon Chapter of Beta Sigma
Phi entertained their husbands at
the annual Christmas buffet din-
ner and party.
The hall was decorated for the
Christmas season. The focal point
was. a gaily decorated Christmas
tree which held many gifts which
were exchanged later by the group.
Each woman also brought a toy
which was given to the husband
and later presented to the Jaycees
for Toys for Tots.
Mrs. Greta Freeman, social chair-
man, served as general chairman of
party arrangements with sorority
members volunteering to serve.
As everyone concluded their din-
