The employees of St. Joe Paper
Company face an insurance hike
in their group hospitalization po-
licy. The insurance premium has
been increased from $10.00 to
$26.00 in the last ten years.
Union representatives told the
hospital authorities and doctors
that they realized the insurance
policy had been abused by their
members in the past, causing the
premium to go higher. The repre
sentatives asked the doctors and
hospital authorities to help then
in trying to keep abuses to a min-
imum, so that the insurance might
not be priced out of the reach of
the participating members.
The doctors and hospital people.
recommended that a deductible
policy be put in force by the un-
ion members. Miss Minerva Mc
Lane, hospital administrator told
the members that no emergency
had been turned away from the
hospital for lack of' a deposit. "In
no case would anyone be turned
away from the hospital in an emer-
gency", said Miss McLane. She told
the group that in cases where ad-
mittance could obviously be post-
poned, payment of an outstanding
bill would be required before ad-
mittance, or arrangements made
for payment of a deposit.
All of this information was giv-
en in case the unions decide to go
to the deductible policy. The poli-

Hears No Tax
The City Commission sat for
one hour Tuesday night as a tax
equalization board in the city
but had no objections to valua-
tions being placed on the rolls
on personal and real property
for the coming tax year.
Valuation-wise, Port St. Joe
had only a small, increase this
past year over the previous year
of 1962. Last year's real and per-
son property valuation of exempt
and non-exempt property in the
city was $12,440,595.00. This year
the valuation is $12,579,073.00 or
an increase of $138,478.00.
According to City Auditor and
Clerk, J. B. Williams, most of
this increase came about by the
removal of formerly homestead
exempt property from the ex-
empt rolls and placing them on
the taxable rolls.
Included in the total property
valuation is $10,066,243.00 in tax-
able property and $2,512,830.00
in exempt property. Taxable
property increased by $138,478.00
over last year.

He pointed out that a new aware

Rep. Karl said that the question
of state borrowing came up for
some profound thought and much
planning by the Legislators. He
spoke in favor of the Governor's
planned outdoor recreation financ-
ing plan. This would allow the state
to borrow up to $50 million to be
repaid with a 5% tax on sporting
goods, to purchase lands through-
out the state for recreation and
tourist attraction. A proposed park
for St. Joseph Point will come un-
der this financing plan.
Karl added his support for an
annual session of the legislature
since budget plans were mere con-
jectures at best when planning so
far ahead as is now the case.
Karl said that he approved of
all new taxes with the exception of
the added cost to automobile li-
cense tags. He said that most of
the taxes were on luxury items,
which records show will be paid
to a large extent by tourists.

The answer to "Why can't

suspected small defects can
make a big difference in his pro-
gress at school and later in life.
Protective immunization against
p lio, diphtheria, tetanus and
whooping cough, and vaccination
against smallpox are the best de
fense against these crippling and
killing diseases. Follow-up booster
shots should be obtained at proper
intervals, and these can be taken
care of at the regular checkups.
In many states this protection is
required before any student is
permitted to enter school.

for greater national physical fit-
ness, especially in our youths.

The City Commission expressed
concern Tuesday night for the de-

laxity of enforcing parking laws
in alleys of the city.
Mayor Frank Hannon expressed
the wishes of the Commission to
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin and
asked that his department pay clo-
ser attention to the parking me-

that a little trouble had been ex-

Griffin said that the phone in the

Overall growth of 13-1 per cent in

Young ladies nowadays-and
sometimes their mothers, too-
are showing up at the office,
at school or at a party with a
variety of elaborate new hair
styles that men often find some-
Most of the new puffed up
hairdos depend on roughing,
back-combing, or "teasing" the
hair to give added body to the
newest style. Some other names
for these techniques are "rat-
ting" and "lacing".
Today's Health, the magazine
of the American Medical As-
sociation, reports that roughing
or back-combing does not dam-
age the hair if it is done pro-
perly and if the hair is in good
condition; that is, if it is na-
turally lustrous and the fibers
are strong and springy.
However, these operations
should be carried out gently
and not too frequently. This
will avoid roughening of the
hair fiber's surface and undue
tangling, especially on dry,
brittle or easy-to-break hair.
These operations tend to
tangle the hair quite badly.
Tangled hair is difficult to
comb and somewhat greater
than normal fiber breakage may
occur unless care is exercised.
And when milady tires of the
puffed up hair-do and decides
to return to normal, begin
combing at the ends and then
gradually progress toward the
scalp to remove the tangles by
gentle combing. Actually, brush-
ing is more effective than
combing for removing the
tangles and is easier on the
If your teen-age daughter
turns up one day with what
the parents believe is an absurd
hair-do, or a dye-job in un-
natural colors, don't worry
about it. The new hair that
grows out from the roots will
still be daughter's own normal
hair and the new style will go

In Gulf Reported
The Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported the activities of the Patrol
in Gulf county for the month of
There have been recent promo-
tions, principally among postal
workers, which indicate that the
Administration's Equal Employ-
nment Opportunity Program is re-
sutting in discrimination against
white employees. There are even
graver charges that the Adminis-
tration has ordered that Civil Ser-
vice procedures be ignored and
promotions made strictly on the
basis of race. A situation of this
kind, if true, would be a very un-
fortunate one for the Kennedy Ad-
ministration. Even the strongest
civil rights proponents must ad-
mit that discrimination against
whites is as bad as discrimination
against Negroes. If such a policy
were allowed to exist, it would, in
my opinion, surely defeat the pres-
ent Administration in the next
I have waged a vigorous protect
with the President and with Ad-
ministration officials against any
attempts to force integration on
off-base establishments through
threats of "off-limit designations".
"Off-limit designations" were in-
tended to apply only in those cases
where health or moral conditions
are considered sub-standard. Any
departure from this precept would,
in my opinion, be unlawful. I am
drafting legislation to insure that
"off-limit designations" cannot be
used as a means to force observ-
ance of socialistic precepts. In the
meantime, vigorous protests should
be filed directly with the Admin-
istration from businessmen and
civic leaders who would be affect-
I have consistently warned
against taking too much comfort
from the disagreement on ideology
which has developed between Rus-
sian and Chinese dictatorships.
Both are bad. Each is determined
that Communism shall rule the
world. However, the Russian brand
of Communism has in recent years
accepted a somewhat more realis-
tic view of the damage of war, and
they have been a little less intol-
erant toward other systems of gov-
ernment. The Chinese Reds are
less informed on world affairs and
less vulnerable to the damage of
war; therefore, less tolerant of the
thinking of other people. The split
has progressed to the point that
there is no longer unanimity of
thought and action. This provides
an opportunity for the Free World
to operate with more boldness, and
this should be done on all fronts.
At the same time, it must be re-
membered that both the Russian
and Chinese ideology are Comn-
munistic and that friendship for
the West will not develop in either
case. They will fight the West be-
fore they fight each other.
HENRY FORD CENTENNIAL
1963 is the Henry Ford Centen-
nial. He was born 100 years ago.
Certainly, it must be said that Mr.
Ford widened our horizons more
than any other person in modern
history. He created an industrial
revolution, and he made the au-
tomobile a way of life. It was the
Ford car which set the stage for
an unprecedented freedom of
movement by the people of the

My office and those of our two

capitulate, these are:
Department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare grant to Walton
County Hospital at DeFuniak
Springs for 19-bed addition, in the
amount of $195,000.
-- Rural Electrification Admin-
istration loan to modernize power
facilities at the Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative at Wewahitchka, in
the amount of $464,000. Included
is a substation at Southport.
HEW grant of $33,120 to the
City of Valparaiso for construction
of a secondary sewage treatment
U. S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice grant of $22,200 to Washing-
ton County for Holmes Creek Ac-
cess Road construction project.
COLD WAR MEDALS
I strongly supported H.R. 2998,
a bill which passed the House last
week to give Cold War heroes the
recognition they deserve. As it
stands at present, courageous
Americans who fight and die
abroad in "police actions", or who
serve with friendly foreign forces
at war with Communism, cannot
receive the medals and recogni-
tions accorded "Hot War" soldiers.
However, favorable Senatorial and
Presidential action on H.R. 2998

ATHEISM ON THE MARCH
(Editor's Note-The following editorial appeared re-
cently in the South Fulton Recorder, Fairburn, Ga. We
commend it to the sober thinking of our readers.)
The American Association for the Advancement of
Atheism in its annual report says:
"The United States, not being a Christian nation, and
its Godless Constitution requiring a secular government, the
American Association for the Advancement of Atheism DE-
MANDS (emphasis ours):
1. Taxation of church properties.
2. Elimination of Chaplains and sectarian institutions
from the public payroll
3. Repeal of laws restricting rights of atheists, and
those enforcing Christian morals.
4. Abolition of oaths in court and inaugurations.
5. Non-issuance of religious proclamations by chief ex-
h 6. Erasure of the superstitious inscription IN GOD
- WE TRUST, from our coins, and removal of the church flag
. from above our National flag on battleships.
7. Exclusion of the Bible as a sacred book from the
8. Suppression of the bootlegging of religion through
- dismissing pupils for religious instruction during class time.
9. Secularization of marriage, with divorce granted upon
" 10. Repeal of anti-evolution, anti-birth control and cen-
- sorship laws.
Y This is the program and aim of the Atheists, and Item
c 7 has already been obtained that is the exclusion of the
y Bible from the public schools through action by the Supreme
Court of the United States. This is the basic step required
to put the other nine aims into effect. The Supreme Court
e has already outlawed Bible reading and prayer in public
1 schools. Aims No. 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 of the Atheists as given
above will follow as logically as waters run down hill if the
Supreme Court follows its own decisions in the Bible and
prayer cases. Otherwise they will be so inconsistent that
one decision will destroy the other.
The elimination of the Bible and prayer in public schools
in terms of the vernacular is "Getting a foot in the door."
Now the door can be pushed wide open and all forms of
religious activity and principle eliminated everywhere that
public funds are involved, including the elimination of Chap-
lains from our armed services, exemption from taxes of
church properties, abolition of oaths in courts and inaugura-
ations, and on down the list.
Many people err, in my humble opinion, in not taking
the Supreme Court decisions on Bible reading and prayer
seriously, and fail to look ahead and visualize where these
decisions can lead us. It is a very serious and dangerous
The basic question involved is are we to pursue the
principles of atheism or Christianity? The Supreme Court
of the United States apparently is leading the march towards
(We might point out that only in a land with freedom of
religion, can such things happen. We would keep our land
free for the individual's free exercise of his religion. To keep
it thus, where man is truly free to pursue the dictates of his
coi scious and convictions, we must put forth some effort.
Lethargy breeds loss of freedom and slavery.-Ed.)
County's Tendancies Toward Economy Welcome
We would pause for a few minutes to urge on the County
Commission toward their probing, conservative ways in set-
ting forth a county budget for the coming year.
We have sat in on nearly every formation of a county
budget for the past 10 years, and we have never seen such
forthright questioning of the various funds and budgets to
ascertain if they are actually needed.
The County Board is working on the premise and
we concur with this thinking that if the money is not
actually needed to do the job that needs to be done during
the next 12 months, there is no need to levy taxes to provide
It is refreshing to see such an attitude of concern over
the poor taxpayer in times like these.
While it is to be expected that the Board will provide
the funds necessary to operate the various departments of
the county during the next year, we expect to see a lean
budget come out of their deliberations this year.

The parents and players are
grateful for the work of the man-

Ihe team had several outstand-
ing players this year. One of them,
James Cannington was co-winner of
the "Most Valuable Player" award.
James pitched in ten games and
won nine of them. In a game June
11, James pitched a no-hitter and
struck out 17 of 18 batters. In the
all-star game, James gave up just
four hits while he was striking out
11 all-star batters.
Much appreciation goes to the
ball team. Each boy played hard
and gave his complete support.
Steve Freeman served as bat
boy and did a very good job.
The team bids farewell to five
12-year-olds. They are: James Can-
nington, Terry Parrish, Billy Sim-
mons, Harry Young and Larry

Summer basketball practices are
being held in conjunction with the
Port St. Joe High School recrea-
tion program. It is felt that these
sessions allow the boys who wish
to become outstanding players the
court time needed for developing
the skills and reactions required
in present-day basketball. Their
willingness to work during the hot
weather indicates that they are in
terested in becoming better play-
ers. The many hours spent this
summer will result in improved in-
dividual and team performance
next basketball season.
The following boys are working
regularly on basketball: Andy
Trammell, Randy Armstrong, Da-
vid Macomber, Leon Hobbs, Lloyd
Gardner, Billy Lee, Tommy Atchi-
son, Danny Oaks, Bob Craig, John-
ny Oaks, Junior Nichols and Jake
Belin. Other boys who are being
counted on next season have not
been able to practice regularly due
to summer jobs and vacations.
The work-outs are held at 3:00
p.m. daily. Any boy of high school
age is invited to join and improve
his basketball ability as well as his

Pan American personnel at Cape
Canaveral are taking the training
too. The county systems are Liber-
ty, St. Johns, Flagler, Brevard,
Sumter, Polk, Highlands, Hardee,
De Soto, Charlotte and Sarasota.
Father Mortimer Danaher of the
St. Augustine Diocese of Catholic
schools said he believed the pro-
gram would aid students not only
to become more effective citizens
but would also help train them for
assisting in disasters.
The programs are built around
basic information a person should
know to preserve life and health
in time of natural or man-made
disaster. The course contains 11
lessons on such subjects as radio-
active fallout ,and shelter, emer-
gency supplies and sanitation,
burns, shock, bleeding and ban-
daging, birth of babies in shelters
and transportation of the injured.
Dr. Lowery, County Health Of-
ficer, adds that Gulf County was
one of the first counties to institute
the disaster preparedness training
course. Approximately 30 persons
completed the course last summer.
