It is ironic that the most coveted

founded upon, a religious founda-
tion-"built upon the rock" so to
speak. These decisions are fast
eroding that foundation.
As we understand it, this nation
was founded in its beginning and
thrived upon its desire to worship
God without harassment from a
government. It even provided that
athiests could have the freedom
not to worship if they so desired.
But by no stretching of the imag-
ination can we see where this free-
dom of religion can be interpreted
as freedom FROM religion. We can
not see the course of this nation
carried out as it was started by
depriving its God fearing people
the right of worship to appease
the wishes of the minority who do
not desire to worship.
This nation protects the rights
of the minorities, as it should,
but not while ignoring or depriv-
ing the wishes of the majority.

fornia is suing to remove "One

Police Investigating !Rash
Of Obscene Phone Calls
Police have been investigating
a rash of obscene telephone calls
being made to local girls and
women this week and last, ac-
cording to chief H. W. Griffin.
Griffin said that over 50 calls
have been reported to the Po-
lice Department during this per-
iod of time.
Griffin said that although such
activities are hard to trace, the
department does have some def-
inite leads on the source of the

posed ordinance at their meeting
Tuesday night, which up-date eval-

In the past the City has taxed
on personal property according to
the evaluation placed on such pro-
perty and business inventory by
the County Assessor. For all pur-
poses, the same evaluation has
been used year after year with
minor changes on occasion.
The proposed new ordinance dis-
cussed Tuesday night by the Com-
mission, would require that tax-
payers file a list of inventory and
personal property prior to levying
taxes each year. Taxes will then
be levied on the annual basis of -
property and inventory.
The City Commission passed as
an emergency ordinance Tuesday a
measure setting up the additional
three cents tax on cigarettes. The
ordinance was passed in compii-
ance with the new state law just
passed by the Florida legislature.
The new law will raise the tax on
cigarettes from 5c to 8c. The City
will get 60% of the additional 3c.
According to Clerk J. B. Wil-
liams, this tax will mean an addi-
tional $18,000 (approximate) for
the City of Port St. Joe each year.
Bids Let and Asked
The City let a bid to the Edwin
R. Jenney Company of Ft. Myers
?uisday night for 550 feet of 2%

$1.25 per foot. This purchase is the

THE STAR, Port St. Joe. Fla. THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 1963
School Board's Thoughtful Study of
Problems Are To Be Commended
We offer our congratulations to the Gulf County Board
of Public Instruction for their restraint, thorough weighing
of the problem, taking into consideration the long range re-
sults and eventual manner in which they made what they
thought was the right decision in our current discord at the
Port St. Joe High School.
In spite of agitation by some people, they have not been
rushed into any quick moves they may regret later. They
have not thrown our school system out of kilter with dismis-
sal action at the critical period that comes with the end of
school. The pupils deserved a complete staff through school
and certainly did not deserve a change in faculty during the
last month or two of the term.
We feel that public interest in the matter was good. But
we do not feel that the public should have tried to take the
matter into their own hands without waiting for the School
Board to move in the manner in which they are required by
law. The School Board was complete cognizant of the
facts as they were and could only act to the extent of their
limitations set forth by Florida law.
The Star has not ignored this situation as has been
intimated from some sources. We have not stuck our head
in the mud and hoped the situation would go away. We have
felt that it was best for the school as a whole and for
the public image this would create for our city to keep the
problem out of the limelight as much as possible. We were
very aware of what was going on .what with three chil-
dren in high school who witnessed these things first hand.
And of course, we could "hear as many tales"' outside of
school as anyone.
We have also gone to the trouble to check with the School
Board on any new gossip or rumor that cropped up. We
were naive enough to feel that they knew more about the
subject at hand than any informer, regardless of whe-
ther what the informer said was what we wanted to hear o0
not. Twenty years in this business has taught us a little
something, even if only by accident.
We have tried to use restraint in the matter, rather
than a turned cheek. We have given the School Board cre-
dit for knowing what they were doing, without needing our
help. If our help was needed, it would have been offered.
The situation was and is distasteful, as we said once be-
fore in this newspaper, but chewing it up every day didn't
make it taste any better.
What most people don't realize is, that a teacher has
greater job protection than the trade unions offer their
employees at any of the manufacturing plants in Port St.
Joe. While there were many advocates of firing personnel
from all directions, none of this advice, although possibly
well-intended, could be heeded by the Board. They have
protection, and they should have.
It is a serious thing to contemplate depriving a man of
his livelihood since you are also depriving a wife and
children of a livelihood also, in many cases. What letters
the school board sent out, we feel were kept to a bare mini-
mum in order to bring order out of chaos. We also feel that
the requests for resignations went to only those that it was
felt substantial reasons for dismissal could be given by the
Board. And, we might point out, these reasons are few, and
they are serious reasons, as set out by the State of Florida.
One cannot release an instructor with a continuing con-
tract just because you don't happen to agree with him or
like the way he parts his hair.
We also admire the School Board for attempting to keep
secret the number of resignation requests sent out and the
objects of these requests. It would hardly seem fair for the
requests to be made known from a public source or common
gossip, before the official document was received.
The School Board decided on names to receive the re-
quests, upon what grounds the requests would be made, and
when they would be sent out about a month ago. They wait-
ed for the end of the school term before requesting the resig-
nations, which we believe showed a considerable amount of
cool-headedness and restraint.
David Lawrence ended his column the other day thusly:
"Laws do not abolish prejudices. Customs cannot be chang-
ed by coercion but only by quiet appeals to reason over a
long period of time."
It takes a lot of "giving" on the part of any man, black
or white, to be able to earn the privilege of "taking" some
of the benefits that are offered as first-class citizens in the
social realm of any part of the world.
One cannot "demand" acceptance of his brothers. he
must earn it, by showing that he intends to pattern his life
along the high plane he wishes to obtain.
We look down on no man because of his color. We do
look down on all men who do not show pride, ambition and
moral straightness about himself.
This world situation must worry women more than
men. The other day we saw a gray-haired teenager come
out of the beauty parlor.

JACKSONVILLE The State
Board of Health this week urged
parents who have children starting
to school this fall to obtain birth
Everett H. Williams, Jr., direc-
tor of the board's Bureau of Vital
Statistics, said, "We have the
same number of employes the year
round. Right now we're processing
about 500 birth certificates a day.
If the past is any indication, many
parents will wait until August to
make requests and since we can
handle only so many a day, any
last-minute rush is almost bound
to cause inconveniences.
"Your child could miss an entire
year of school unless a birth certif-
icate is obtained in time. We can
give fast service now but later dur-
ing any rush the service will be
Application for a certified copy
must include the full name of the
child; the full name of the father:
the full maiden name of the moth-
er; the day, month, year, city and
county of birth; whether the child
is male or female; and the child's
race. The original birth certificate
number should be included if pos-
sible. If the child was born in an-
other state, the certificate must be
obtained from that state.
A full photo copy or a wallet-
sized card encased in plastic may
be obtained. The type wanted
should be specified. A fee of one
dollar for each copy or card must
accompany the application. Appli-
cation forms may be obtained at
county health departments but a
letter will be adequate if it con-
tains all the above information.
The board also suggests that be-
fore starting the first grade, the
child have basic immunizations for
diphtheria, o c k jaw, whooping
cough, smallpox and polio.

The current June issue of Readers Digest makes a report to consumers This article on Page 66, June 1963, Readers Digest, is titled
"Who Gets What?" points out that Supermarkets who give stamps, add the stamp cost, plus handling cost to their cost o' doing business-
which they then pass on to their customers in higher prices. This article confirms and points out that the Stamp Companies are enjoy-
ing tremendous profits at the consumer's expense ... Readers Digest gives this Shoppers Advice and we quote, "The best money-sav-
ing technique is to compare the actual prices o' products offered by different supermarkets and go and shop with the store having the
best buys. regardless of stamps." COMPARE OUR PRICES, they ARE DISCOUNT PRICES GOOD NOW!
