Group Studies Ways To Get
Approval of Spit Park Funds
Gulf County's representatives in
the State Legislature; Jack Buford,
from the Governor's committee of
r e c r e a tional development and
Claude Willoughby, of. the Florida
Park Service, met with civic lead-
ers in Port St. Joe last Friday night
to discuss ways and means of se-
curing state money in the coming
budget to finance the development
and construction of the St. Joseph
Spit State Park. The sum of money
needed for initial development, ac-
cording to the Park Service's de-
sign people will be in the neighbor-
hood of $400,000. This will also pro-
vide money to purchase the pro-
perty upon its anticipated release
by the U. S. Government around
the first of May.
Gulf's delegation, Senator Luther
Tucker of Crawfordville and Rep-
iesentative Ben C. Williams presid-
ed over the-meeting.
Rep. Williams reported that he
had been working with the Park
Service in drawing up their budget
to include the needed sum in their
budget. He has also suggested and
is working with Senator Tucker to
promote a "Legislative Day" in
Port St. Joe. A feature of this day
vill be the transportation of the
entire Legislature to St. Joseph Spit
to Icok over the proposed pack site.
Williams said he has already ar-
ranged with the Army for trans-
portation to the Spit and over the
park site, to be furnished during
their coming maneuvers on the
Spit. Arrangements for transporta-
tion to and from Tallahassee has
provided a problem, according to
Williams also stated that he had
been successful in getting $25,000
in the budget for enlargement of
the Constitution Park Museum and
for transferring $18,000 formerly
set aside for a wayside park in the
area to the Museum enlargement
program. This money still must
meet the approval of the budget
Senator Tucker outlined the steps
that must be taken in order to get
money appropriated for the Park
project. He said, "It's easy to ap-
propriate, but hard to get people
to agree to the taxes". For that rea-
son, appropriations of any magni-
tude requires a lot of work on the
part of the one desiring funds.
Tucker said that he would work
for support of the park project in
the Senate and would give every
support he could toward realization
of the park.
Jack Buford told the group that
the recreation committee is whole-
heartedly behind the project and
asked the support of Port St. Joe
on behalf of the Governor's out-
door recreation program. He prais-
ed the city's efforts in their recent
letter writing campaign in regards
to the program stating that it was
Senator Tucker and Rep. Wil-
liams asked the group to get
representatives from every civic
and governmental organization in
Port St. Joe who could go to Tal-
lahassee on short notice. The
delegation stated that they would
notify the group when the pro-
per time would be to come in a
body to request individual aid on
the project from individual Sen-
ators and Representatives. The
delegation promises to introduce
the group and to guide them in
their efforts to seek appropria-
tions. These representatives are
now in the process of being ap-
pointed and will probably go to
Tallahassee within the next two

Also Passes Resolution Asking That Commission Retain
Power To Retain Civil Engineering Service In Future
The Gulf County Commission went on record as opposing three pieces of local legis-
lation introduced into the Florida Legislature, at their regular meeting Tuesday night.
The Board was all in accord with the action taken except on the question of doing away
with the County's paying a retainer fee to an engineering firm. Commissioner James
McDaniel voted against interfering with this legislation, but the other Commissioners
overruled the one dissenting vote.
The Board passed resolutions requesting the Gulf County delegation and Governor
Farris Bryant to intervent on behalf of the County killing bills that would have created a
new port authority for Gulf county; closed private oyster beds during the state public

Williams stated that he under-
stood that a statewide bill close,

summer months would be intro-
duced as a statewide bill next
month to accomplish the same
purpose as his local bill.
He agreed to withdraw the oys-

At the Rotary Club meeting last Thursday, Trooper
Ken Murphy brought the program concerning safety on
bicycles. Murphy told the club that the Florida Highway
Patrol (and the State of Florida) has no laws governing
the use of bicycles on public roads. And only a few laws
exist concerning the use of motorcycles and vague laws
govern the qualifications of the riders of these motorcycles
Motorcycles in our city have tempted fate sorely during
the past few months. At least six boys have been painfully
-and some seriously-injured in motorcycle accidents.
Some of these accidents were from negligence .
some from immature reactions some from carelessness
and not abiding the rules of the road.
In talking with Murphy, we find that it is lawful for
a driver carrying a restricted permit, between the ages of
14 and 16 can lawfully ride a motorcycle on public .roads,
during daylight hours only and provided his machine is
not rated over five brake horsepower. The age limits, the
operation hours and speed regulations we can put our fin-
ger on and control. But, the fact that some of these ma-
chines being operated by under age drivers may be over-
powered, offers headaches for the FHP.
One manufacturer may claim his machine is under five
brake horsepower, when, up beside another machine, it is
more than the required horsepower. The ratings are ambig-
uous, to the specifications of the manufacturer. And noth-
ing in Florida law spells out the meaning of "horsepower".
It would seem a pertinent thing to us as well as
protection of the youthful riders, if the Legislature would
look into this matter and also provide some rules of the road
for bicycles to operate under. Probably the manufacturers
of motorcycles could be required to stamp the brake horse-
power on the motors of their machines to be arrived at by
a system set out by Florida law.
While this wouldn't remove the entire danger, at least
the law could be enforced and would probably remove high-
powered machines from under young, inexperienced oper-
ators, who are tempting fate by using them for toys.
Light Yaers From Solvency
The President's proposed budget, which is by far the
most important domestic matter Congress must deal with,
envisions spending in the $100 billion plus area. If, with it,
the also-proposed presidential tax recommendations were
adopted, the deficit would be the largest in history, includ-
ing time of hot war.
This, to the program's supporters, is apparently a prob-
lem of relatively small significance-everything will take
care of itself and business stimulation resulting from reduc-
ed taxes will on some vague future day take care of all the
deficits. They seem to reason that greater spending, low-
er taxes, a Welfare State, and the ultimate in military read-
iness all go neatly into a reasonable package.
Arthur Krock, the veteran New York Times columnist,
who can hardly be termed a black reactionary, writes:
"Item by item the budget reflects the weird and incessantly
disproved economic theory that government can bestow all
these material benefits without a grim reckoning at any
time in the future. It is the death of a viable economy that
is risked by the items which pile on the billions."
Views similar to this could be quite from a. very long
list of people, newspapers, organizations and groups, rep-
resenting the whole spectrum of social, economic and poli-
tical opinion. The question of how a nation--any more
than a family-can keep on indefinitely spending beyond
its income and survive financially has not yet been an-

Something soothing, something pure, something gentle and

these requirements for nigh on to a century is soda bicarbonate,

Since it sweetens as well as cleans it's a valuable aid in
dispelling odors. Sour milk odors won't develop if bottles are
filled with a soda solution as soon as they are emptied. Odors
won't escape from the diaper pail if a handful of soda is added

Soda also figures in baby's skin care. A couple of tablespoons

health problem in Florida, having
been the cause of death of more
than 8,300 persons last year, and
with an expectancy of 16,000 new
cancer cases this year, Governor
Farris Bryant has issued a procla-
mation which endorses April as
"Cancer Control Month" through-
out the state.
Th e Governor's proclamation
states: "1963 has been designated
as the Year of the Volunteer by
the American Cancer Society. It is
a tribute to more than 65,000 men
and women in Florida, and the 2,-
000,000 throughout the nation, who
have dedicated themselves to the
fight against cancer.
"The recognition of the volunteer
also serves to emphasize how these
dedicated people have helped to
bring progress in cancer control,
evidenced by the fact that more
than 1,300,000 Americans are alive
and well, five years after attacks
from cancer. In 1937, the figure
stood at only 160,000.
"To speed the final victory over
cancer, and try to reduce cancer's
mounting death rate of more than
8,300 citizens in Florida alone, the
American Cancer Society is deter-
mined to intensify its effort to
bring life-saving facts to the public;
to improve services to the cancer
patient, and to accelerate its cancer
"To this end, every citizen of
the state of Florida is urged to ob-
serve Cancer Control Month by
giving support to the American
Cancer Society and learn the facts
about cancer that are vital to per-
sonal protection against the di-

Loyalty Day To Be Observed
By Methodist Congregation
"Loyalty Day" will be observed
at the First Methodist Church Sun-
day, April 28, according to an-
nouncement made by the minister,
Dr. Thomas S. Harris.
This is an annual observance and
is the day on which all the mem-
bers and friends are asked to show
their love and loyalty to Christ and
the church by being present and
by being prepared to make their
pledge for the financial support of
the work for the new conference
year which begins June 1.
Dr. William F. Wager is the gen-
eral chairman of the financial
campaign this year. Under his lea-
dership and with the fine support
of the committees he has appoint-
ed, the campaign promises to be
one of the most successful ever
conducted in this church.
The minister urges all the mem-
bers and friends of First Church
to stand up and be counted and to
show forth their loyalty and faith-
fulness next Sunday.

Trooper Murphy Gives
Rotary Club Program
Trooper Ken Murphy brought the
program for the Rotary Club lunch-
eon meeting last Thursday. Murphy
spoke on a subject that is given
little attention by most people--
The local patrolman told the club
that bicycles were not regulated
under Florida law, which stipulates
operating procedures for only mo-
He pointed out a need for laws
governing bicycle traffic for uni-
formity so that cases involving the
bikes could be decided upon. He
also stressed the need for a strong
safety program needed in schools
and at home, since most bike rid-
ers are elementary school age chil-
Murphy recommended that par-
ents who allow their children to
ride their bikes at night, equip the
vehicles with a headlight that can
be seen for at least 500 feet and
reflectors be installed on the rear.
Murphy pointed out that bike
riders traveling the streets in
groups, would be safer if thdy tra-
veled single file instead of in a
bunch. Bike riders should always
ride near the shoulder of the road
traveling the same direction as mo-
Murphy also stated that one of
his problems is motorcycles being
ridden in the city with more on
the machine than it was designed
to carry. He said it is against the
law for more people to ride cn
these machines than seats are pro-
vided for. He said that he has seen
as many as five youths on 'a motor-

Kiwanis Sees Film
On Russian History
A documentary film on Russia,
covering a time span from 1900 to
the present day was shown to the
Kiwanis Club at their regular meet-
ing Tuesday at noon.
Despite the "Five Year Plans"
of the Communists, the country is
still desperately lacking in consu-
mer goods, food and housing.
It takes five times as many farm-
ers to till an acre of Russian land
as it does an acre of American land
and the crop yield is woefully un-
der what the U. S. yield is.
Nothing in Russia is privately
owned. All farm land, factories,
and even retail stores are owned
by the government. The nearest
thing to private ownership is a
small plot of ground peasants are
allowed to use to grow their own
