TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR

ETAOIN SHRDLU
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY

We have been asked hundreds of
times in the past few weeks if we
were going to take an editorial
view of our current "school prob-
lem".
But before we take stands, we
like to find out the facts. The facts
were not easy to find, because they
were too vague to put your finger
upon, until they were blown all out
of proportion and perspective by
what we term to be undue publici-
ty during the past weeks. Such pub-
licity, in our view and study of the
situation, has not served any pur-
pose except to heighten and broad-
en the problem.
What started out as merely an
embarrassing situation on the part
of some of the faculty, which time
would heal, has exploded to a point
where law enforcement officers
were called to the school Wednes-
day (we believe needlessly) to pre-
vent a loosly kept "secret" that
the students were going to walk
out, en masse.
We would like to correct that
"en masse" to exclude at least
three students-mine. They have
been given strict orders from home
to confine their school activities to
getting an education and leave the
running of the institution to the
school board and the school offi-
cials. Should they violate this or-
der, they will meet with their re-
prisals at home. It will not be left
up to school officials to straighten
them out or keep them in line.
After a thorough investigation of
the matter from beginning to end,
we find that the whole situation is
the fault of parents who fail to
discipline their children and teach
them the necessity of obeying rules
as set out by, such institutions.
We admire the restraint of the
faculty for not committing whole-
sale suspension of students this
close to the year's end. We feel a
great compassion toward their ef-
forts to maintain the upper hand
when students are being allowed
by their parents to state that the
rules of the school are wrong (after
being right for so many years).
The fault doesn't lie with the
teachers nor ultimately .
the students. The parents are to
blame. Should orders be given at
home, the school situation will
straighten itself out over night.
-This same attitude, in essence, is
what the recent resolution of the
School Board pointed out,,Namely,
that rules of the school system
were being flagrantly ignordd- and
flaunted by a group of students
and that the School Board was
standing behind its faculty in its
enforcement of school rules and
regulations.
Unofficially, we have it from
the school board that something
will be done, quickly, if the par-
ents do not take their children in
hand. And the outcome may be far
from desirable for the offenders.
Our school system is not to be
toyed around with. This is children
we are "playing intrigue" with. An
.attitude of "witch hunting" such
as has been going on must stop .
right now.
Students go to school to learn .
not to operate the institution and
this status quo must be maintained.

Legislative Week End
Must Be Called Off
"Gulf County Legislative Day"
originally scheduled for this Sat-
urday, has been called off accord-
ing to Chamber of Commerce
President, B. Roy Gibson, Jr.
The special day was designed
to give an on-site tour of St. Jos-
eph Spit to members of the Flor-
ida Legislature in promoting the
advancement of the Spit as a
State Park. An attempt is being
made to include funds for the fa-
cility in the current state budget.
The day was cancelled since it
appeared more than likely that a
session of the Legislature will be
called for the group in Tallahas-
see Saturday. Since such an un-
dertaking cannot be cancelled at
the last moment, it was thought
best to cancel the tour while
there was still time to do so in
the face of the empending spec-
ial session Saturday.

'Elementary Summer
School Starts June 17
In addition to the Reading Lab-
oratory which was announced pre-
viously, summer school classes
will be conducted in the Port St.
Joe Elementary School. This pro-
gram will last for six weeks, begin-
ning June 17, and ending July 26.
If you are interested in help for
your child in reading or related
subjects for grades one and two,
contact Charlotte. Lovelace, for
grades three through six, contact
Mrs. Willie Mae Daniell.

Audit Report Favorable To City Finance

Record Keeping; Critical of Inventory


A report from the Auditing firm
of Haskins and Sells was studied
by the City Commission Tuesday
night. The audit was favorable in-
sofar as operation of the City fi-
nances is concerned but was criti-
cal in that the City did not have
proper inventory control over its
capital assets.
The report showed that prior to
1962 the City kept no record of in-
ventory of equipment and mater-
ial on',hand and had no method of
charging off such equipment thru
depreciation schedules.
The report pointed out that the
City now has some $1,460,000 in


City Enacts Voter,
Qualification Rules
The long-talked-about new regis-
tration and qualification ordinance
was enacted by the City Commis-
sion Tuesday night.
The new ordinance, in effect, will
allow prospective voters in City
elections to begin registering 40
days prior to election. Registration
books will remain open for 30 days.
Under the old ordinance the books
are open for only 20 days.
Another change in the ordinance
is closing the qualification books
(for candidates qualifying for elec-
tion) 20 days prior to election. Un-
der, the present ordinance, candi-
dates may file for election up to
10 days prior to election day.


material assets, and some system
should be devised to keep up with
the items.
Clerk Williams reported that an
inventory system is now being set
up on city materials and real es-
tate and that a depreciation sche-
dule is being initiated whereby the
City will have money on hand to
replace materials worn out and re-
placed in the future by using the
depreciation schedule.
The firm in part said: "In our
opinion, (except for the inventory
and depreciaton aspects) the rec-

ords are kept in conformity with
generally accepted accounting prin-
ciples applied on a consistent ba-
sis.

film Thursday of last week on the
history and progress of Detroit.
Like so many cities along the nor-
thern waterways and the Mississip-

adaptation of a name given by the
French. The name given by the
French was spelled the same as
present day Detroit, but was pro-
rounced "Dee-twa"
Detroit was founded in 1701 and
through the years has been a thriv-
ing manufacturing community due
to its accessibility to raw materinalI
.nd transportation facilities con-
necting with the entire world.

BOYLES 30-DAY ANNIVERSARY
JAMBOREE ROARS INTO THIRD WEEK!
19th ORBIT TODAY PULLING FOR 26!
19th and 26th Orbit Values In Gigantic SeH-Out News!


Dear Friends:
Some one has said: There are two
days in every week about which
we should not worry, "Two Days"
which should be kept free from
fear and apprehension Yester-
day and Tomorrow. It behooves us,
therefore, to live one day at the
time.
Here's a sure-fire killer for red
.bugs: fingernail polish! Believe it
,or not! This fishing lover got cov-
ered while wandering in a rustic
camp site up Indian Bayou. Wife
Erlma insisted on applying this
remedy. Said it should be clear pol-
ish, but she only had the flame red!
When applied, the patient was
bright red spotted all over! Went
to sleep no scratching. (This
information not s c i e n t ifically
checked for publication) May not
have the effect on other hides!
SELF SATISFACTION .There
is no thrill in easy sailing when
the skies are clear and blue .
There's no joy in merely doing
things which any man can do .
But there's some satisfaction that is
mighty sweet to take When
you reach a destination that you
thought you'd never make (from
"Sales Sparks")
By the time we get old enough
.not to care what anyone says about
us, nobody says anything! (from
"The Resaw") Would you be in fa-
vor of changing the phrase "Fed-
eral Funds or Federal Grants" to
"Taxpayers Funds"? Who's being
kidded? Random Reflections: Being


poor has a real advantage It's
not expensive .. The clothes that
keep a man looking his best are
worn by women You can't take
with you, but where else can you
go without it? The auto did
away with horses and now it's mak-
ing an effort to do away with peo-
ple (Drive with Care!)
Now friends, here's a one good
enough for many blows abso-
lutely FREE Simply say to the
salesperson who serves you: 'Tve
read about BOYLES Surplus Stock
Sell-Out in this issue of The Star"
and a free white, hemstitched hand-
kerchief is yours (man's size .
yes, Free!) No strings no pur-
chase required Just another
wind-fall at BOYLES, the store
where individual and personal se-
lection is a policy in our purchas-
ing No blanket order to cover,
10, 20, 30 or 50 states .. We se-
lect especially for you, our good
friends and loyal patrons of Port
St. Joe, Gulf County and surround-
ing neighborhoods Yes, you're
special to us!

Mayor Hannon Presented Trophy
Miss Becky Childers, "Miss Flame" of the Florida Firemen's
Association is shown above presenting Mayor Frank Hannon with
a trophy she received at the annual convention of the Florida Con-
tion of the Florida Firemen's Convention held recently in Panama
City. The trophy, representing Port St. Joe as the home of "Mis
Flame" for 1963-64 will be retained by the city for a year, after
which it will be passed on to the home town of the next "Miss
Flame". The trophy was presented last Tuesday night at a dinner
given by the Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire Department, honoring Miss
Childers. (Star photo)

Next Week Is
"Academic Week"

Governor Bryant has proclaimed
the week of May 27 as "Academic
Achievement Week".
The State Department of Educa-
tion in observance of this week has
recognized with letters of commen-
dation, ninth grade students who
made scores on the State-Wide Ap-
titude Tests in the 87th percentile
and above. Eight of ou students
received these letters.
In a special assembly of ninth
graders on May 21, Leroy Bowdoin,
principal of the high school, award-
ed the following students with
these letters of commendation:
Pat White, Linda Graham, Robin

Bowling Team

Places In Tourney
Phillip's 66 bowling team from
Port St. Joe placed fourth out of
89 teams that recently competed in
the Florida State Handicap Bowl-
ing Tournament held at Saragota.
Big Winton Ferrell led his team
as high man. Other team members
making the trip and bowling well
were: Al Jensen, Lee Taylor, Carl
Zimmerman and Tom Thornton.
Total series for the three games
bowled was a big 3143, which
should be some kind of a record.


Social Security
Some people who were turned
down when they applied for So-
'cial Security benefits some years
ago may now have checks coming
to them, according to John V. Ca-
rey, District Manager of Social Se-
curity in Panama City. The work
requirements which determine whe-
ther Social Security benefits are
payable have been changed a num
ber of times since the law was ori-
ginally passed. As a result, some
older people who were once told
they did not have enough Social
Security credit to be insured may
now bp eligible for monthly checks.
Many persons in this seven coun-
ty area have lost hundreds of dol-
lars ments because they have not cbn-
tacted t-heir Social Security office
within the last three years, Carey
continued. The work requirements
were reduced in 1960 and ag3in in
1961, and these folks might have
been getting checks for some time.
The reason why they are losing
money is because they haven't fil-
ed a new application with us They
may lose even more in the future,
since an application for benefits is
retroactive for no more than 12
months, Carey pointed out.
Those who are 62 or over and
who have worked under Social Se
curity should visit their Social Se-
curity office to ask about their So-
cial Security rights. Even if they
were once told that they were not
eligible for benefits, they should
check again just to be sure.
The Social Security office for
this area is located at 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, Panama City, tele-
phone PO 3-5331.
