"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 1963 NUMBER 28
Circuit Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick,
'ordered charges of embezzlement
against former Port St. Joe City
Auditor and Clerk R. W. Henderson
dropped Tuesday, before the case
ever came to trial.
Henderson was to be tried Tues-
day in connection with an alleged
$9,000 shortage in City of Port St.
Joe Water and Sewer Funds. He
was charged specifically with em-
bezzlement of $800.00 of the alleg.
ed shortage. The shortage was re-
ported as the result of an audit
last spring by a Jacksonville au-
diting firm after examination of
two months of city business in con-
ducting their usual spot audit.
Henderson has denied responsi-
bility for the apparent' missing
funds. He was represented Tues-
day by David Carl Gaskin and Billy
The state was represented by J.
Frank Adams and his assistant,
Judge Fitzpatrick released Hen-
derson in the preliminary hearing
before the trial Tuesday after not-
ing that no testimony from several
state witnesses linked the defend-
ant with the alleged missing funds.
The Judge noted the accessibility
to the cash drawer at City Hall by
four other city employes at the
time the apparent shortage was dis-
covered but stressed this does not
cast the least bit of reflection on
the honesty of these employes.
Henderson was charged with the
embezzlement charge by the State
of Florida in August of last year
and has been under $1,000 bond
since that time.
The only state witness to testify,
that she had observed Henderson
take a specific amount of money
from the cash drawer, was Mrs.
Ruth Hammond, a secretary-book-
keeper in the-cityoffice. Mrs. Ham-
mond testified that she saw the
defendant remove a $20.00 bill
from the drawer, but had no way
of knowing what the money was
used for, nor if the clerk-auditor
replaced the money.
Witnesses testified that several
ledger stubs and cashier's coupons
representing payments of water
bills were discovered in a garbage
can in the rear of the city hall, but
none could say how they got there.
Mrs. Hammond also testified that
Henderson had told her in 1961
that "somebody is stealing the city
blind." She said that Henderson
had taken money from the cash
drawer on several occasions,- but
could not verify amounts or state
what the money was used for.
The State entered no further
charges against Henderson.

Wilson pointed out that Simpson
has upheld the values of Scouting
to the boys of Port St. Joe and has
helped to mold them into leaders.
"The name John Simpson is almost
synonomous with Scouting in Port

Simpson is a holder of the Sil-

Scouting award given for service.
Simpson has also been instru-
mental in staging Kiwanis Min-

Anchor Found In Bay Dated To Old
St. Joseph Days By Hobbyist
According to' an amateur his-
torian of Apalachicola, the old
anchor found and removed from
St. Joseph Bay last Wednesday
is definitely dated as being in
the old St. Joseph era, accord-
ing to Mrs. Ned S. Porter.
The old anchor was located
by the "Three Sisters" shrimp
trawler, operated by M. C. Wood
about a half mile from the shore
of St. Joseph Bay off Patton's Ba-
you. According to Wood, the an-
chor was found in 18 feet of wa-
The entire anchor was encrust-
ed with bryzoa, which is a soft
sandstone-like substance and was
mixed with astrea equestria, a
shell animal which attaches itself
to underwater objects. The pres-
ence of these two substances on
the anchor would indicate that
it had been in the water for
more than 100 years.
There was some conjecture
that the anchor may have come
from a barge which went on
ground in this area during a big
storm in the 20's.
The fluke, shank, chain, ring,
gravity band and crown were all
intact on the anchor. The stock
is missing, and was possibly made
of wood which rotted away.
Wood has not yet made up his
mind what he will do with the
anchor. Members of the St. Jos-
eph Historical Society have asked
for it, to be placed in the vicin-
ity of the Constitution Park Mu-
operate the Council for a year.
No goal has been set for Gulf
County according to Bowdoin, but
he has hopes of bettering last
year's fund drive which took in
slightly over $1,000.00.
On Theft Charges
Two young teen-age boys were
arrested by the Gulf County Sher-
iff's Department Tuesday and put
in the County jail, charged with
breaking and entering.
The boys were picked up for
breaking into the St. Joe Ice Com-
pany and taking some $6.00 in
The boys admitted to breaking
into the St. Joe Ice Company on
four occasions and taking small bits
of money found lying around. Own-
ers of the company had not missed
the previous thefts.
The two young boys-one about
13 and the other around 15-have
also admitted to a series of other
breaking and entering acts around
the City of Port St. Joe.

IN THE EAS 1EIR PARADE
Six forest fires which were de-
liberately set were under control
in Bay County near Bayou George,
north of Panama City late last
week. Three of the fires were set
along Highway 77-A between Nehi
and the Deer Point Dam.
More than 600 acres of well
stocked timber land was severely
damaged. "Fanned by a twenty-five
mile wind and burning through 50
to 60 foot tall timber made the sup-
pression work difficult," said Dis-
trict Forester Smith. He said the
fire jumped across Bayou George
Creek and spotted across plowed

Last week Ed Woods was accused of murdering the HIGH FOOD PRICES. Yesterday, after being questioned for five days, he finally confessed and implicated
three others, the Produce Man and two Stock Clerks. After several hours of rubbr hose treatment, they also confessed and named several more who helped murder
HIGH FOOD PRICES.
The accused employees of WOOD'S DISCOUNT FOODLINER want you to prove that Mr. HIGH FOOD PRICES is dead in their supermarket even though he is very much
alive in other supermarkets under the alias of Stamps, Coupons and Gimmicks. They ask you to check and compare these prices with other supermarkets for you may
be on the jury that has to pass judgement on WOOD'S DISCOUNT FOODLINER.
They also wish to CAUTION you not to be MISLED by claims of other supermarkets that they are underselling WOOD'S DISCOUNT FOODLINER with a weak price
comparison of 15 or 20 weekend specials. Several prices were incorrect, in spite of their weekend specials, WOODS was still underselling them.
COMPARE aur prices, they sure beat LICKIN' STAMPS.

"Florida forests must supply

the expanding needs of a fast grow-
ing population," Clyde Fite, com-
mittee chairman, said. He showed
that not only is individual per cap-
ita use of wood and wood products
increasing, but the consuming pub-
lic is growing larger. With full for-
est income derived from maximum
production, Florida counties would
find their county revenues doubled.
Fite emphasized also that for-
estry must answer extra demands
in outdoor recreation, soil, water
and wildlife conservation as well.
It is imperative, he said, that all
of Florida's 20,000,000 acres of for-
est land be fully productive.

Don't Wait To EQUIP
You should not wait until the
last minute to make plans for your ,
future retirement, according to
John V. Carey, District Manager of
the Panama City, Social Security
Office. People in Social Security
offices will be happy to tell you
what records you will need when DELUXI
you file your retirement claim, and
to give you an estimate of what NE.
you can expect to draw. --
Retirement claims should be fil- APPLIED or
ed two to three months before you
actually retire, Carey added. This 19 63 N
will insure that the check for the
first month after you retire will
arrive on time. Retirement age for
both men and women is 62, and
you may be entitled to draw some Re
Social Security checks even though
you do not consider yourself to be
retired. If you did not have earned
income of more than about $1700
last year, you could receive some D
payments by filing a claim. Ba
Social Security benefits can nev-
er be paid for more than 12 months
prior to the month that you actually
filed your claim, Carey continued. A
This rule applies to survivor and Ac
disability claims as well as retire-
ment claims. A delay of more than
12 months can cause loss of sub- Hfi
stantial Social Security benefits. 1

An automobile driven by Mrs.
Hazel Burnette Glidden and a West
Florida Gas Company truck driven
by Harvey Laurimore ran together
on Long Avenue between Seventh
and Eighth street yesterday morn-
ing, according to the Port St. Joe
Investigators reported that the
gas company truck had swung out
into Long Avenue to turn left into
an alley. Mrs. Glidden, apparently
thinking the truck was going to
turn left, started to pass on the
truck's right. The truck swung into
its right turn, hitting the Glidden
auto. Total damages were estimated
No charges were filed.
