"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 1963 NUMBER 18
Florida Park Service officials Claude Willoughby (left) and
Jack Bradley (right) are shown above examining old bricks found
on St. Joseph Peninsula last week on an inspection 1f the proposed
State Park site on the Point. The bricks, along with other articles
found have been found to date back several hundred years. The
bricks are thought to be a part of an old Spanish mission founded on
the Peninsula during Florida's pioneer days.
The park officials were gathering materials to use for a basis
of creating' a "natural" park and possibly a historic museum on the.
2,000 acres of land at the end of the Peninsula. The construction of
the park is depending upon the release of the land by the U. S.

Born in 1894, in New York City,
the daughter of a millionaire in-
dustrialist, Mrs. Behanna was rais-
ed in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel,
and educated under private tutors
at home and abroad, The first wo-
man ever to speak at Yale Univer-
sity Chapel, she tells her story of
divorce, alcohol, sleeping pills and
attempted suicide, until, she says
she was "at the bottom of a self-
dug pit with nowhere to go but
up, and nobody there but God."
From that moment she has taken
seriously the words of Jesus Christ
to "Go and tell the world what the
Lord has done for you." This 'was
the reason for her book and the
reason she is on tour six to nine
months a year speaking to people
in schools, seminaries, prisons, col-
leges, to all people.
In Florida the latter part of Jan-
uary and during February, Mrs.
Behanna will speak at the Univer-

versity, Jacksonville University and
ten other communities throughout
Chairmen Coldewey and Owens
urge the people of this community
to follow news accounts, radio and
TV coverage on Mrs. Behanna's
itinerary before her local visit and
hope that the people of Gulf Cuon-
ty will seize the opportunity of
hearing this Christian speaker who
has recently been accalimed in the
press of Atlanta, Columbia, S. C.,
and other nationally known news

in Port St. Joe, Mrs. Behanna, who
"looks and acts like a very articu-
'late and witty pixie",, will proceed
to Panama City, Pensacola and oth-

Florida Bank Shows
Growth During Year
The Florida National Bank at
Port St. Joe recorded probably its
biggest year of growth this past
year, as indicated by its annual
Statement of Condition published
in this week's Star.
The bank showed an increase in
assets of $1,441,245.78 over last
year at this time. In last January's
statement the bank listed assets at
$3,839,113.73. This year, the assets
are listed at $5,280,359.51.
Biggest single factor in the hike
in assets was the increase in depo-
sits of customers which jumped by
more than a million dollars over
last year. In January, 1962, tihe
bank listed deposits at $3,321,-
212.40. The current statement
shows deposits of $4,685,789.68 for
an increase of $1,364,577.28.
The bank increased its surplus
account from $175,000.00 to $250,-
000.00 during the past year.
The statement reported that the
bank presently has $1,215,130.88 in
loans as of December 28, 1962.
Plans Special Services
Evangelistic services are schedul-
ed at the Pentecostal Holiness
Church, Garrison Avenue at 20th
Street, January 23 through Febru-
ary 3, it is announced this week
by the Rev. Joel S. McGraw, pastor.
Evangelist for the week and a
half revival, will be the Rev. Al-
pheus Noseworthy, Superintendent
of the Pennsylvania Conference of
the Pentecostal Holiness Church.
Former Secretary of Foreign Mbs-
sions in his denomination, Nose-
worthy has realized a fruitful min-
istry both in South Africa and
Cuba as well as in the United
States. A native of Canada, most
of his pastoral and evangelistic
ministry has beep north of the
Pastor McGraw states that the
evangelist has proclaimed the gos-
pel of Christ-centered living for
35 years with marked results
wherever he has been. As a stu-
dent of the Word and a man of
prayer, his anointed messages will
be sure to bring help to all who
hear, the local pastor said.
Each service will begin at 7:45
p.m. daily and a 15 minute broad-
cast may be heard at 12:00 noon
each day over WJOE radio.
Members of the local church are
preparing for revival through ex-
tensive prayer at church, in their
homes and in cottage prayer meet-
ings. Anyone who likes evangelis-
tic singing and Christ centered
preaching will not want to miss a
service, Pastor McGraw concluded.
The Sin of Omission .

omission last week-although un-
wittingly-when we left out a
name of one of 'the boys who

Much Work Is
Still To Be Done
The City Commission began the
first of a series of meeting Tues-
day night, that will bring into be-
ing a comprehensive zoning ordin-
ance for the City.
The City is now operating on re-
strictions placed on certain lots
and areas by developers of the var-
ious plats which make up the City
of Port St. Joe.
The new Ordinance will place
building restrictions on certain
areas throughout the city restrict-
ing building lines by limiting the
number of feet to be left for a
front yard, the amount of space
to be left beside a dwelling and
other such items.
In addition, the Ordinance will
group certain sizes of dwellings in
different areas throughout the City.
Four Residential Groups
The Ordinance as presented for
study Tuesday night, divides dwel-
ling areas in four areas, stating
what service buildings can be
built in certain areas such as pro-
fessional men, beauty parlors, fun-
eral homes, etc.
The area carrying the highest
restrictions on the proposed Or-
dinance is that area lying between
Monument and Constution and 11th
to 16th Streets and between Long
and Constitution and 16th to Con-
Next highest restrictions are ten-
tatively placed on that area be-
tween Sixth Street and 16th Street
from 'Marvin Avenue to the City
Limits and from 16th Street to the
City Limits and from Long Avenue
to the City Limits.
The only major change in the
zoning ordinance from the way the
City has started to grow is the de-
signation of property along First
Street to Garrison Avenue as a
light industrial area. Monument

as a commercial district to Eighth

In Re The Congo SNAFU
Of course, we know the Congo is in a mess, to say the
least. And almost anything would be an improvement.
People in the Congo portion of that unfortunate spot in the
world are starving to death like flies. There is virtually
no means of making a livelihood and nothing to buy
if a livelihood could be made.
But how much of this is due to natural poverty of the
area, and how much due as an aftermath of U. N. occupa-
tion and government ineptness.
We know that poverty reigns in the Middle East, also,
where the U. N. Weilds the big stick of power.
But, now, the U. N. has routed Moise Tshombe from his
orderly, well-run, prosperous Katanga an area and a gov-
ernment friendly toward the U. S. And by retrospect, it
has been only by the skin of our teeth that we have main-
tained the favor of the Congo, if this can be called an asset.
The thing we can't understand is, why didn't the U. S.
bring pressure to bear on the U. N. to turn the Congo over
to Katanga! Possibly the obviously well rooted government
that has its people's respect and obedience, could also bring
order out of chaos in the Congo. Certainly, the governing
forces of the Congo have not shown the ability to solve their
It appears to us that the U. N.'s equivalent to the U, S.
foreign policy is just about as adequate. A "bull in a china
At any rate, with past evidence of John F. and his deal-
ings with his "friends" across the seas we're glad he
doesn't know us much less claim us for a friend.

Americans Will Meet Their
Responsibilities Without Coercion
First Class Mail is now a nickel. Air Mail has gone
up! (How could it be air mail if it did not?) And the news-
papers have been carrying considerable coverage of the new
The Post Office Department in Washington, D. C. has
released much information on the subject. The information
is usually treated from two points of view. (1) "The increase
is only a penny", and (2) "What a wonderful bargain for a
By the time you have read three or four of these yarns,
a person starts to feel guilty for having been a cheap-skate
all these years. -
After all, what's a one penny increase in these days of
This is what that penny is! It's the same as having a
quart of milk go from twenty-eight to thirty-five cents; a
$3600.00 automobile go to $4500.00 or a nine dollar
pair of shoes raised to $11.25. In other words, it costs us
25 per cent more to mail a regular first class letter.
Yet, one wire service story had this to say, "The new
postal rates will cost the average American family only
$1.80 more per year." The same story also said, "Commer-
cial users will be affected more than private individuals."
Our nation is still capitalistic (thank goodness!), and
this means that it is still legal to sell. merchandise and ser-
vices for profit. A shoe manufacturer, for example, totals
his costs, and then tacks on a profit before he sets his
selling price. Every manufacturer of every product in this
nation is going to pay more for his postage this year. This
increased cost must be considered if present (not increased)
profit structures are to be maintained. The consumer must
eventually foot the bill.
This is surely going to cost the "average American
family" more than the previously quoted $1.80 annually!
Don't misunderstand. I emphatically favor an increase
in postal rates. Not just 25 per cent, because our Post-
master General tells us that fiscal 1964 will show a deficit
of $100,000,000.00,' even with this added revenue. I rec-
commend a raise in any or all classes of mail which will
permit our government to operate the Post Office Depart-
ment without fiscal loss. If such would demand a six- or a
ten-cent stamp for regular first class mail so be it.
Our citizens will pay the way willingly. We would
not have to have such burden "sold" to us. We would not
have to be propagandized or conditioned to assume our own
Nor .do we now "American families" make the United
States of America, and we do not appreciate being conned
by our own government!

Domestic Help Due
Could you afford to pay your

life when she becomes too old or
disabled to work any longer?
Would you be willing to help sup-

who can afford to hire household

such obligations. But there is a

(The following article was giv-
en The Star for publication by
H. E. Richards, County Supervi-
sor, to explain the importance
of the method used to teach a
child to read.-Ed.)
WASHINGTON, D. C.-Reading
consists of more than mouthing
words like a parrot. Reading must
also include understanding if it is
to be useful.
And this is where modern stu-
dents outstrip their counterpartsE
of years ago. For despite what the
critics say, American students to-
day read better than their forefa-
thers did, says one of the authors
of a new pamphlet.
"A Briefing for Parents: Your
Child and Reading", will be distri-
buted this month in the NEA Jour-
nal, monthly publication of the 814,-
000-member National Education
Written by six reading experts,
the pamphlet is made up of a half-
dozen brief articles.
In one of these, Arthur I. Gates
of the Institute of Language Arts,
Teachers College, Columbia Univer-
sity, describes studies that show-
ed the marked reading superiority
of 1957 pupils over their forefath-
One study, for example, showed
the 1957 youngster about a half-
year farther along than the stu-
dent of 1937 at the same age. An-
other study showed fifth grade pu-
pils of Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1947
got an average reading test score
of 93.1 points. The 1921 students'
average was 78.9,
Gates also makes these points:
While the vocabularies may be
limited in the basal reading books,
these are not the only books used
to teach reading. The basal prim-
ers are used only to teach basic
skills, which are used with other
books as soon as possible.
In a recent test, the old, formal
phonic system of teaching reading,
he says, 'failed to produce the ex-
travagant results claimed for it."
Phonics has a major place in read-
ing instruction, but not to the ex-
clusion of everything else, Gates
Reading is no simple task. Ac-
cording to David H. Russell, educa-
tion professor at the University of
California, Berkeley, it's a compli-
cated act involving more than rec-
ognizing a word.
Not only must the student com-
prehend what the words mean, but
"he must also learn, to interpret
what he reads. Sometimes he must
see through the phony argument,
the flashy appeal. Sometimes he
must read between the lines and
find hidden meanings. Sometimes
he must react to the beauty or hu-
mor of a selection. Sometimes he
needs to be able to skip some
words and phrases as he hunts rap-
idly for important ideas, and some-
times he must take the time to
consider the meaning of every
word," Russell points out.
Because of this complexity, he
says, "it is impossible to have one
simple plan of instruction or one
solution to reading difficulties."
Albert J. Harris, director of the
educational clinic of Queens Col-
lege, New York, says there are
three different kinds of reading.
Developmental reading, he says, is
reading practice to improve the
mechanical skills of reading. Func-
tional reading is that aimed at ac-
quiring information, and can ei-
ther be a swift skimming to locate
material, or a slow purposeful
study of the material. Recreational
reading is defined as that done
mainly for enjoyment, with prob-
ably more thought to how the au-
thor uses words than to acquiring
Reading skills are so important
that for the last 30 years even col-
leges have offered advanced read-
ing instruction. George D. Spache,
head of the Reading Laboratory and
Clinics at the University of Florida,
Gainesville, says these are designed
not only to increase reading speed
but comprehension, and a critical
eye for the author's viewpoint, pre-
judices, propaganda appeals, in-
consistencies and missing facts.
What can parents do to help pre-
pare the pre-schooler for reading?

the Cincinnati public schools, and

sity of Chicago-give these an-

OUTLOOK IS FOR CUT IN
TALLAHASSEE (FNS) A good
employment year in 1962 promis-
es a cut of more than one-half in
the minimum unemployment com-
pensation tax rate for 1963, accord-
ing to State Industrial Commission
Chairman A. Worley Brown.
Brown stated the 1962 minimum
rate was 1.1 per cent. The commis-
sion expects to cut it to .5 per cent
of an employer's payroll for 1963.
Brown said the tax cut is due to
a $10 million drop in unemploy-
ment compensation payments in
1962 from 1961 to an estimated $33
million. This drop is expected to
maintain the Unemployment Com-
pensation Fund at an anticipated
adequate level of $120 million by
the beginning of 1963.

The amaryllis is like some indi-
viduals-it is more attractive when
on a diet.
The secret of profuse amaryllis
flowering is a starvation diet.
When preparing the bed for the
bulb, spade in only a pound of low
analysis fertilizer such as a 4-8-8
per 100 square feet of bed area.
Then add a mere 16 ounces of fer-
tilizer a couple of times during
the growing season.
The amaryllis is popular because
it is a multi-use flower. These lily-
like, bell-shaped beauties are used
in border planting, in beds and
as specimen plants.
Indoor gardeners can also grow
them as potted plants.
Planted now the bulbs will or-
bit from their background launch.
ing site into an extravaganza of
color in six to eight weeks. Bulbs
are now on sale at garden centers,
five and dime stores and at super-
markets. Color selections include
red, pink, white and combinations
of these colors.
Bulbs are graded according to
size. These are Exhibition, Selected
and Field Run. For the best possi-
ble dash of color, pay the extra
price for the Exhibition.
Too much shade or soil too rich
in nitrogen also causes flower fail.
ure. Bulbs planted in deep shade
often die, so seek a sunny spot for
the best show of color.
If you want to propagate amaryl-
lis by cuttage, then make use of a
sharp knife at bulb digging time
during Indian Summer. Cut the
bulbs into a number of pieces-
up to 60 pieces if you desire. Be
sure each piece has a portion of
the ste mtissue or basal plate of
the bulb attached to the scales.
Next, dust the wedges with fer-
bam or thiram to prevent diseases,
and then set the cuttings in flats
or in beds containing a mixture of
peat and sand or other porous me-
If the weather is humid, small
bulblets will form between the
scales of the cut pieces in about
four weeks. These will be ready
for potting or planting after one
You can grow amaryllis from
seed. Harvest the seed pods soon
after they turn yellow and begin
to break open. Remove the seeds
from the pods, dry them for a few
days and then sow them in a flat.
Be sure the soil is well drained
and partially shaded. Harden the
infant plants by gradually exposing
them to Ole Sol's rays.
Indoor gardeners who can't wait
for nature to take its course can
force amaryllis to flower at any
time of the year. For this inside
job, pot a mature bulb with one-
half to two-thirds of the bulb
above the soil and maintain a con-
stant temperature. With a bit of
luck and not too much coddling, a
tall, walking cane-like stem will
jump forth from the bulb and be-
come decked with a cluster of bell-
Diseases are not a serious prob-
lem in amaryllis production, but
it is i a sound practice to keep -an
eye open for a fungus known as
These red spots form on leaves,
stems and petals. The spots on fol-
iage are bright red to purplish,
small at first but increasing to
large blotches later. Heavily infest-
ed plants may wither and dry up
before producing flowers.
To prevent the disease, soak
bulbs in a 1:1,000 bichloride of
mercury solution before planting.
If the fungus shows on the
plants, fight the disease with a
neutral copper spray at the rate of
1 ounce in 2 gallons of water.
Root and bulb rot fungi also
ravage amaryllis. These diseases
cannot be cured. But the plant
pests can be prevented by starting
the seed or bulbs in clean soil that
has been fumigated or treated
Insects don't usually gnaw on
amaryllis. Occasionally the lubber
grasshopper and the caterpillar
stage of the Spanish moth feed on
the plants. You may control the
insects with a spray of 3 level ta-
ble spoons of either 40 percent tox-
aphene wettable powder or 40 per-
cent chlordane wettable powder in
a gallon of water.
1963 RAMBLER WINS
"CAR OF THE YEAR"AWARD
from Motor Trend Magazine
Each year the automobile industry eagerly awaits the selection of one car as,
1'Car of the Year" by Motor Trend's impartial experts. For 1963, this most-wanted,)
hardest-to-get honor goes to Rambler..."for outstanding design achievement and

ican Motors' largest selling points."
"In unitized bodies, which American Mo-
tors pioneered, this latest design represents
a real advancement biggest single rea-
son we chose Rambler Car of the Year."
"This new construction method results
in a unit so strong it'll take punishment
longer and naturally hold its resale value."
"The interiors of both the Classic and
Ambassador are roomy and comfortable...
offer plenty of legroom."
"A good safety device. Self-
adjusting brakes and dual master
cylinders... if one system fails,
the other brings the car to a
"Trunk is large. Low load-
ing lip makes it simple to load."
"Our Classic with the
rugged, ohv in-line Six ... gave

"A sportier, more performance-oriented
vehicle, the Ambassador V-8 should sat-
isfy the wants of the Rambler buyer who
"There isn't any pitch or choppiness no-
ticeable even on rough roads."
"Summing up ... it looks like the new

team with a high game of 156 and
the high series for the aleys with
her 452. Cutchip Brown went over
the 400 mark also with her series

Maxine Smith joined the IGA

game of 142 to give her a series of
On lanes three and four, Jitney
Jungle made a clean sweep also
and added four more points to their
good. Lois Smith was really in

first two games. In the third game
she had five strikes in the first
five frames and then finished up
with a very good game of 185
which was also high game of the
day for the alleys. This gave her
a series of 438.
Ann Whittle had three good
games also of 128, 120 and 146 for
a series of 394. Evelyn Smith had
a real good game in the third of

Witness minister C. L. Blum. su-
pervisor for local Jehovah's Wit-
nesses, reports favorably on the
results of the Bible Study Conven-
tion held in the Centennial Build-
ing at Port St. Joe over the week
end. He says 403 witness delegates
attending Friday is unusually high
for the opening day. Saturday the
attendance rose to 462 and Sun-
day, 685 heard Watchtower Repre-
sentative D. J. Thomas speak on
"The Bible's Answer to Our Prob-
lem of Survival."
Blum says in pointed seriousness,
Mr. Thomas identified "our peril-
ous times hard to deal with" and
"men's hearts failing them for
fear" as the very days that Jesus
warned would punctuate his spirt-
ual presence." "Daily news chan-
nels blaze with the evidence", said
Thomas, "and world leaders have
no answer. We are obliged to adopt
God's peace offer of the Heavenly
Kingdom or perish at His hands."
He praised "fear of God rather

that "man may kill, but Almightly
Jehovah can exterminate!"
Past records show that Jehovah's
Witnesses, numbering close to mil-
lion now, according to Mr. Thomas
are noted for their Christian zeal.
Blum says this was demonstrated
at the three day assembly in Port
St. Joe. The host congregation
from Apalachicola spent all of De-
cember finding hundreds of room-
ing accommodations for the visit-
ing delegates in hotels, motels,
rooming houses, private homes and
cottages. They improvised a bap-
tismal pool inside the Centennial
Building and baptized 18 new wit-
ness ministers Saturday afternoon.
They arranged their own music
and sang "Songs of Praise to Je-
hovah" accompanied by organ and
Mr. Blum says the convention
was unique in that the host city
opened its facilities readily and
cooperated with the witnesses in
every preparation detail.
