Police Issue Warning
About Noisy Mufflers
It has been brought to the at-
tention of City Police that the
practice of driving automobiles
without mufflers in the city has
begun to grow especially
among the younger set.
Several complaints have been
filed with the city as a result of
this noisy driving.
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
and his crew has set out to "stop
noisy muflfers", as is the law in
Port St. Joe. An ordinance on the
books prohibits the driving of
autos with excessively noisy muf-
Chief Griffin urges that muf-
flers be put in use on all autos
before cases have to be made
against their owners.

To Relocate County Seat
The Committee for Relocation of the Gulf County Seat, represented by Bob Fox,
vice-chairman, presented their petition to the Gulf County Commission Tuesday night
asking for an election to be held. The election, which the county must hold according
to Florida law will give the citizens of Gulf county the opportunity to decide whether
or not they desire to change the county seat.
Repairs to Jail
County Commission Chairman A.
J. Strickland. made the suggestion
Tuesday night that the county un-
dertake a project of making "min-
or repairs" to the Gulf County jail.
Strickland said that he had poll-
ed several people throughout the
county and found that their sen-
timents ran, along this line due to
a need for further taxes to con-
struct a new jail at this time.
The Commission has been order-
ed by the State Board of Correc-
tions and by Circuit Judge Warren
L. Fitzpatrick to make arrange-
ments for improved jail facilities.
They have ruled that the present
jail is in such bad repair as to be
almost unfit for housing prisoners.
The jail has been plagued by bad
plumbing problems for a number
of years and a great deal of rust-
ing and rotting of facilities is in
Commissioner Leo Kennedy ad-
ded to the discussion that he felt
the security of the jail was ade-
quate but that some of the "com-
fort" repairs were badly needed.
Commissioner Walter Graham
offered the opinion that he thought
the jail needed more than "minor"
repairs. Graham stated, "I think
our best avenue of action would
be to repair the old jail, but the
needed repairs would be more than
"minor" in my opinion".
Commissioner James McDaniel
moved that the entire matter of
jail construction or repairs be
tabled until after the outcome of
the petition for relocation of the
county seat could be decided.
County Buys Fire Hose
The Gulf County Commission
voted Tuesday night to purchase
fire hose and equipment for the
Highland View Fire Department.
The Commission voted to pur-
chase 200 feet of 2% inch hose,
300 feet of 1 inch hose and 250
feet of one inch hose at a total
cost of $999.50.
The bid went to the Fire-End
Products Company, apparently the
only bidder meeting the county's
The petition contained some 517
names of approximately 976 eligi-
ble to sign. The law requires a
third of those eligible to sign to
subscribe to the petition in order
to require an election to be held.
Only tax-paying registered voters
were eligible to sign the petition
but all registered voters in the
county will be eligible to help de-
cide whether or not the move is to
The petition was presented by
attorney J. Donaldson Jones of
Jones and Jones of Panama City
who represented the group of
Jones cited the petition as be-
ing drawn up under Section 138.01
of the Florida Statutes which re-
quires one third of qualified tax
paying electors to sign such a pe-
tition to call an election. The at-
torney told the Board that all the
signatures had been verified from
the records of the Supervisor of
Registration as correct.
The attorney pointed out that
many more than the one third re-
quired signatures were attached to
Chairman Strickland accepted
the petition and passed it to at-
torney David Carl Gaskin for an
opinion of what move to make
Gaskin stated that he 'wasn't ex-
pecting the petition to be present-
ed at Tuesday's meeting and need-
ed to do some research before he
advised the County Board on their
next move to make. He said he
would probably have an opinion
for the Board within the next two
The petition, which requested
the County Board to hold a refer-
endum election on whether or not
the citizens of Gulf County desire
to move the county seat, was in
card form. Each card had the pe-
tition request printed at the top
and had the name of one tax-pay-
ing elector signed at the bottom.
Each petition card which had been
signed was also signed by a wit-
ness to the signature attached.
It is *now up to the county to
determine if the petition meets
the letter of the law and is pro-
perly executed and then it will be
their duty to set up election dates
and procedures if the petition is
found to be in order.

Suggestion for New
County Jail House
Architect Norman P. Gross of
Panama City presented prelimin-
ary plans for a new jail and pro-
posed renovation of quarters now
occupied by the old jail in the
county courthouse at Tuesday
night's meeting of the County
Gross had estimated figures for
cost of the new jail building out-
lined in his preliminary plans and
stated that it would c6st between
$135,000 and $145,000. In addition
he had estimates of $1,000 per an-
ticipated prisoner for equipping
the new jail. The State Board of
Corrections has recommended a
jail capable of caring for 50 pri-
soners for Gulf County.
In answering questions as to the
feasibility of repairing the old
jail, Gross said it could be done
but that the project would be cost-
ly. He stated that the nature of
the steel used in jails took special
equipment for working and that
repairs were almost impossible.
Gross offered the opinion that if
the old jail facilities were to be
reworked adequately, the best road
for the county to take would be to
discard all present equipment and
replace with new.
Gross said, "jail people don't
like to ,repair any equipment al-
ready installed due to the special
heat-treated steel employed in
The County had previously em-
ployed Gross' firmat at a retainer
fee of $1,000.00 to provide work-
ing sketches for new county jail

The Petition Is Presented
The first step has been taken now for the people of
Gulf County to decide if they want to move the county seat
to another location or to leave it where it is.
A petition bearing the signatures of more than half of
the tax-paying electors in Gulf County was presented to
the Board last night, requesting the Board to call a special
,election to this effect.
This question should be decided at this time.
It is adamant that the County spend a good deal of mon-
ey during the next few years on the old court house. It
needs renovating and the State Correctional Division is
demanding that Gulf build a new jail.
Estimates on the complete job run as high as a half
Proponents of the deciding election as to the location of
the county seat, point out that an adequate and beautiful
courthouse for Gulf county may also be built new for
'this sum of money.
Estimates drawn out of the blue on the new jail are in
the neighborhood of $200,000.00. This would include quar-
ters for the Sheriff's Department.
One entire wing of the court house is now taken up by
the Sheriff's Department and the jail.
It is only proper to expect that this area of the court-
house would be re-worked to make additional office space.
Renovation of this wing would be expensive to say the least.
Many pounds of iron bars would have to be cut out along with
extensive renovations. Such renovations would be foolish
unless they should bring the wing up to modern, efficient
standards. This would take a lot of money.
And with a newly remodeled and modernized wing, it
would be almost imperative that the remainder of the court-
house be brought up to the standards set by the remodeled
area. This too would cost a lot of money.
The courthouse is old. It has the old-fashioned high
ceilings. It has oiled-board floors. Both extremes mean
costly renovations to bring them up to date. Air condi-
tioning and proper heating facilities would also be "proper"
after an extensive remodeling job. Face-lifting of the out-
side would be expected.
So, with the vote coming uip, it isn't a question of whe-
ther or not we wish to see the money spent on court house
facilities. The money will be spent. The question to be
decided is whether or not to move the court house and spend
the money in the South end of the county where two-thirds
of the people in the county live, or to spend the money on
renovating the present facilities.
In either event, it will mean taxes to be spent on the
project. And ironically enough, it is those who must pay the
great bulk of the taxes that want the move made and the
Cooperation Needed for Faculty i
Another session of the Gulf county school system gets t
under way this morning. d
Much new leadership and many new faculty members l
are on hand to greet the students. f
These changes came about by the happening of unfor-
tunate events last school term.
It appears that the School Board has replaced able ad- i
ministrators with other able administrators to carry on the t
And, if the crowd of people in attendance at the Jaycee I
teacher reception Sunday afternoon is any indication, the t
new faculty beginning the school year, will get the coopera- e
tion of the parents in making for a successful school year. '
We think this is a good sign. With able people in charge and
cooperation from parents of the community, our school sys- ,
tem can come up to its full potential and continue to offer c
a quality education to the students of Port St. Joe and sur- I
We fervently hope that animosities will be laid aside and p
replaced with cooperation and interest of the welfare of the a
students and that this will be a harmonious and instructive c
school year for our students.
School Bells Again! -
Everyone's view of summer is different depending on I
his responsibilities, opportunities, and role in life. Many r
mothers very probably feel it has been long, noisy, busy and
hot. But a good many million children and dogs probably h
find it hard to believe that three months could have sped so
quickly and that the school doors are about to open once e
The sounds and smells and experiences of summer vaca-
tion are still an important part of growing up. But there
have been changes. The automobile and airplane have vastly
extended the scope of things that can be seen on a vacation c
trip. School has changed too, as the frontiers of man's know- <
ledge have been pushed back so rapidly in recent years.
The amount of knowledge that must be packed into the t
heads of children in grade school and high school has vastly
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 19
As school bells ring again, let's salute our young pec
ple and those who guide them through ever more complicate
fields of learning. In the great affairs of nations, in science
and in the complicated business of leading a good and worth
while life, our need has never been greater for concerned
intelligent, educated men and women.
James A. Farley, Realist
As a prophet, James A. Farley who has been but sel
dom in the public eye in recent years, is not without honoz
in his own country.
More than 300 of the nation's most seasoned political
reported and most influential columnists support the stirr
ing appeal for "decisive action" presented in his "Creed for
a Time of Danger" in the July Reader's Digest. And if there
are any calling him "an alarmist or even a warmonger", as
he said he expected, they are keeping their voices very low.
The views of the nation's top reporters were pretty well
summed up by Jack Meddoff of the Buffalo (N.Y.) Evening
News when he wrote: "James Farley has better common
sense judgment fast asleep than those calling him names
possess wide awake." And the 300 who were polled go along
with Sanford E. Stanton of the N. Y. Journal American in
describing Mr. Farley as a "realist, not an alarmist".
There is some division, however, in the matter of our
"image" abroad. Two-thirds share the author's fear that
Red leaders are contemptuous of the "fighting spirit" of the
average American, while the others believe our will to resist
Communist aggression is well understood and respected.
Emphasizing the latter position, Clyde Walthall of the Cof-
feyville, Kan., Daily Journal declares that lacking such re-
spect, "the Russians would have triggered World War III
long before Khrushchev came to power."
But practically all are in agreement with Mr. Farley
when he says: "The map proves that we are not moving
toward war with the Communists; they are moving war
"Anyone who does not believe this," says Jack K. Over-
myer, editor and publisher of the Rochester, Ind., Sentinel,
"simply has had his head in a sack for 15 years."
As for what to do about it, the following steps were
Direct action in Cuba in defense of the hemisphere.
Firmness at Geneva and in other international con-
A bipartisan Congress where foreign policy is involved.
Stop foreign aid to Communist and "Neutral" coun-
Mr. Farley, in his Digest article says: "How, when and
where the will of the American people must exert itself is
the decision solely of the President." Every citizen, he
thinks, should let the President know that he stands behind
him "in the awful risk, confident that. he will exert that
will-only because he can do naught else-and again prayer-
ful htat it is also the will of God, in whom we trust".
There should be no need of pollsters to establish our
endorsement of these words.
Attorney General of the Air Force?
Senator Barry Goldwater, a major general in the Air
Force Reserve, sees in the Defense department's civil rights
program "the threat of a military take over should things
change in the country and we find the military commanders
have become used to running politics and the social life of
The Arizona Republican expressed this concern in at-
tacking, on the floor of the Senate, the Pentagon order that
directs commanders of military establishments to place off
limits nearby areas where "relentless discrimination" is
Senator Goldwater charged that the directive "started
n the Attorney General's office" and demanded an investiga-
ion of the recent tour of military bases by the newly-appoint-
ed Deputy Assistant Secretary for Civil Defense, Alfred B.
'itt, who, he said, was "completely armed with dossiers on
he businessmen of the community, dossiers complete with
very figure the committee (Presidential Committee on Equal
opportunity ) can get out of income tax returns."
Democratic Senators John Stennis of Mississippi and
Strom Thurmond of South Carolina backed the Goldwater
harge that the Pentagon order put the military in politics.
n the view of Senator Stennis, chairman of the Senate Pre-
?aredness Sub-committee, it "places the members of our
rmed forces in the mainstream of swirling political currents
.nd, unless rescinded, will keep them there for years to
The Pentagon admitted that a group of Defense offi-
ials recently visited Air Force bases at Biloxi, Greenville
nd Columbus, Miss.; Mobile, Ala.; and Shreveport, La., and
hat Mr. Fitt was on part of the tour-'where off-base dis-
rimination problems had been known to exist". But the
Department denied that Mr. Fitt or any others had infor-
nation from income tax records or Government files.
It would seem to us that the Defense Department might
lave its hands pretty fully running the Army, the Navy, the
&ir Force, the Marine Corps and in maintaining and strength-
ening our defenses against the most cunning, ruthless and
far-flung enemies the nation has ever faced-without un-
iertaking to police civil rights.
However, the Goldwater charge of the use of "police
state" tactics, would seem to revolve around the question
of whether or not Mr. Fitt and his group have used, as the
Senator said, "the full force of the Internal Revenue docu-
ments". When the facts have been established by investiga-
tion it will then be time to determine the proper scope of

Driver Education Becomes
Part of School Curriculum
517 First Street
Rewound and Repaired
Today, almost every high school
student becomes an automobile
driver, and in the next decade
there will be more than three-mil-
lion youngsters reaching driving
age every year.
The state of Florida has wisely
decided not to wait until this mass
of young people embark out upon
the highways with little more than
a few instructions from dad and
a worried wave from mom to be-
come posisble statistics in the ever
increasing ledger of death on the
Beginning with the coming
school term, every high school in
the state must offer driver educa-
tion in its curriculum, and unless
the course is successfully complet-
ed by a student, he is not eligible
to apply for a driver's license un-
til he is eighteen years old instead
Driver Education is offered in
Port St. Joe High School, both
the first semester and second
semester, also in the summer.
You are reminded as to the
new law that went into effect
the First of July. Forms for phy-
sicals will be available at each
doctor's office and at the Gulf
County Health Department.
If your son or daughter has
not signed up to take driver ed-
ucation, you are invited to come
by and discuss your child's pro-
gram with the instructor or gui-
At the alarming rate of young
driver accidents today, the price
we would pay in the years ahead
for not training these beginners
would be an intolerable waste of
lives and resources.
Actually, driver training is as
important to the high school cur-
riculum as any academic study,
for learning to live sensibly and
successfully with the automobile
-yes, to stay alive-has become
vital in our increasingly mechan-
ized and mobile age.
As an integral part of the for-
mal education of our youth, it pro-
vides an unexcelled opportunity to
make sure youngsters learn good
citizenship habits behind t h e
wheel before they have a chance
to develop bad ones through the
"hit and miss" methods prevailing
The benefits of driver education
to the community could not be
more tangible or significant-it
reduces the wrecking of lives, fu-
tures, families and property.
As a result of fewer accidents,
savings in dollars and cents as well
as in human resources accrue to
all of us as parents, breadwinners
and taxpayers, not just to the
young drivers involved.
These include :(a) reduced pro-
perty repair costs; (b) reduced hos-
pital and medical costs; (c) reduced
cost of governmental services, such
as police, courts, motor vehicle de-
partment, etc., and (d) reduced in-
There can be no doubt that the
logical place to begin is with new
drivers. Since they must be taught
the proper attitudes as well as
skills of sound driving, the high
school's unique educational facili-
ties and classroom atmosphere will
produce far more superior, com-
prehensive and lasting results
than the informal efforts of rela-
tives or friends.
Obviously this program will cost
money and require a great many
additional teachers. Florida, here,
has also had the foresight to plan
ahead to the day when sheer num-
bers of students would prevent ade-
quate driver training and defeat
the entire purpose of the program.
Man school systems are acquir-
ing driving simulators which are
designed to bridge the gap between
the classroom and behind-the-
One of two simulators approved
for state use is the Allstate Good
Driver Trainer built by the "Link
Trainer" builders of World War
II fame, General Precision, Inc.
with films produced by the train-
ing division of the Allstate Insur-
ance Companies in cooperation
with leading driver education
teachers and audio-visual special-

Rests With Driver
The major responsibility for
child safety in traffic rests with
the motorist, the Peninsula Motor
Club (AAA) reminded today as lo-
cal schools got ready to open their
doors for the new term.
The motor club also issued a 10-
point check list designed to pre-
vent traffic accidents involving
school-age children. It is part of
the annual "School's Open" cam-
paign. conducted by the AAA in
cooperation with local law enfor-
cement agencies and schools.
_-Assisting in the distribution of
posters, bumper strips and other
"School's -Open -materials -sup-
plied by the AAA are: Sheriff
Byrd E. Parker of Gulf County and
Police Chief H. W. Griffen of Port
Throughout the nation, some
four million children out of a total
of 46.8 million will be going to
school for the first time. Emphas-
izing that last year 7.4 school child-
ern were killed in traffic accidents
for every 100,000 persons, the mot-
or club issued the following "Scho-
ol's Open" safety tips:
1. Local authorities should make
certain that cross walks, particu-
larly those around school areas,
are clearly markde well before the
opening of schooL
2. Parents of youngsters attend-
ing school for the first time should
familiarize themselves with the
"safest route to school" and accom-
pany their children to and from
school for the first week or so.

Hurricane Season Is Here. Warning
Issued To Trim Dead Branches FromTrees
The hurricane season is here.
This brings to mind that trees and
men have one thing in common-
they often are exposed to the fury
of a lady.
The human-type tiff may be caus-
ed by arguments over a permanent
wave. But without a doubt tree
trouble starts with an easterly
Men have the choice of joining
the Foreign Legion when a storm
begins brewing around their home,
because they may find it easier to.
face bullets than fight a domestic
But trees have no choice. They
must face the full fury of a lady
without being able to strike back.
Usually the storm's first provo-
cation is to soak the rotting, moss-
filled tree branches. Next, the
windy lady slaps the soggy mass
to the ground with a dull thud
which puts the home owner's ner-
ves on edge.
So inspect your trees for dead
branches that seem to be ready to
fall. Also look for dead branches
that are firm but brittle. A gust of
hurricane-force wind can snap an
arm-size branch from a tree and
send it at missile speed through
a picture window.
A low-hanging branch over a
roof can wreck havoc. Powerful
winds can turn the limb into a tool
of destruction. This tool can re-
move slate shingles as easily as
a fish scaler can remove scales.
Removing dead and out- of-
place limbs is a good idea even

I wish to announce my candidacy for re-elec-
tion as your City Commissioner for Group 3 for
the City of Port St. Joe. I have long experience
for City Government and I feel my record will
speak for itself. I have always worked for the im-
provements of your city. I am proud to have had
a hand in improvements of our City that has been
done by your City Commissioners this past year.

voters. If you do not know me. ask your neigh-
bor. I am a businessman and tax payer. I will
endeavor in the future to serve the interests of
all the people.
I would like to encourage everyone eligible to
be sure and register, then vote for me. I will ap-
preciate your vote and support.

pruning is nessary for eye appeal.
Fan-like fungus growing on the

The auto-made wound can easily

Trees are not apt to crush a
house if t h ey succumb to a big
blow. Usually, as the soil becomes
soggy and wind stronger, the trees
fall gently against the dwelling.
If the trees lean against the house
during the first half of the storm,
this is an asset. The trees then
serve as a prop to the house snug-
gly and safely during the second
half of the blow.
Actually,. a hundred mile per
hour wind is not as dangerous as
it sounds, if necessary measures
are taken before the wind reaches
gale force, plus retreating indoors
while the unwelcome lady is danc-
ng around outside.
If your home is located in an
Area that might be flooded, you'll
be given ample notice to evacuate
hours before the storm reaches
your area. Otherwise, there is no
safer place than in a well-built
Soon as the storm is past it is
a 'good idea to inspect the trees
and other plants around the house.
Usually all the plants will show
signs of wind damage. But with a
little trimming, propping and re-
setting of root systems, nearly all
plants that were shaken loose from
the ground can be salvaged.
Following a hurricane there are
nearly aways a few bright sunny
days. Use these days to dry out and
tidy up around the house. In no
time at all you will erase the signs
of the big blow.

the $15,000,000 of the taxpayers'
money enjoyed by Life each year
on shipping subsidies or the $23,-

On Saturday, November 9, 1963,
the U. S. Civil Service Commission
will conduct a preliminary exam-
ination for young men who are in-
terested in appointment tothe U.

Academy nad the U. S. Merchant
Marine Academy. This examination
is given for the purpose of select-
ing qualified young men for ap-
pointment to the various service
To be eligible for consideration,
a young man must be at least 17
years of age and must not have
reached his 22nd birthday by July
1, 1964; must never have been
married and must be in good phy-
sical condition. To be eligible for

Parkersburg, West Virginia,
headed by A. K. Summers, has
been regularly paying employ-
ees their full checks three
weeks out of the month, and
then taking all deductions out
of the fourth paycheck.
A $125 per week employee,
under this system, finds the
pay for the fourth week is
$?2.68. A-$70.00 per week em-
ployee finds that on the fourth
week not only is no pay forth-
coming, but that actually $4.75
ii owed in additional taxes.
"Most of our employees,"
Mr Summers states, "now re-
alize wild federal spending is
coming out of their pockets."
Shortly after starting this
,plan, in one of those "Man-
aged news" episodes, newspa-
per people informed Mr. Sum-
mers that the tax people had
told them they would take ac-
tion against him if this con-
tinued. But despite headlines,
no move has ever been made.
The Baker Tool Company of
Los Angeles, Coors Brewing of
Denver, and many others are
using variations of these meth-
ods to impress on employees
who pays for waste.
So far, under the existing
laws, this appears legal, as
long as the employer pays gov-
ernment tax amounts due.
There may be a move to
make a ruling that this "cru-
sade of truth" is illegal.

need of this attention than larger
cities. The larger cities have many
buildings that have protective low
er floors that can be used for fall-
out protection, not found in the
smaller towns' with smaller build-
The State is presently urging
the allocation of Federal money to
be provided to build in fall-out pro-
tection in all public buildings.

All that will be necessary will be
the digging of a hole.
But even though this has made
things handier to handle the vic-
tims of this madness, it is caus-
ing the city some consternation.
The dragging of automobiles has
made a shambles of the grass lawn
in the cemetery.
The city is considering locking
up the drive-in gates to the ceme-

of the draggers but it will not
move them further from death.
All employers who have one or
more employees working on jobs
covered by Social Security are re-
quired to report their earings ac-
curately and promptly, according
to John V. Carey, District Manager
of the Panama City Social Security
He said many employers think
it is not important to report earn-
ings when a worker only earns "a
little bit." But this "little bit" may
be the factor which determines
whether the worker's family gets
Social Security benefits when he
retires, dies, or becomes disabled.
Carey said there are three em-
ployer classifications. (1) Emplo-
yers who operate a trade or busi-
ness (2) Housewives who have do-
mestic workers in and around their
homes! and (3) Farm operators
who hire farm hands.
"All these employers should ask
that the worker show his Social
Security card when he is hired,"
Carey said. "You, as the employer,
should put in your permanent re-
cords the name and Social Secur-
ity number exactly as they are
shown on the card. You will need
these two items when you report
the worker's earings to Internal
Employers who operate a non-
farm farm trade or business must
report on any wages paid to anr em-
ployee. Payments in kind in lieu of
money count as wages.
Household employers report
only the actual cash wages in a
calendar quarter must be reported.
Farm employers report only the
cash wages paid and make their re-
port to the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice in January of each year. This
report covers the preceding calen-
dar year. (Non-farm business em-
ployers and household employers
report to the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice at the end of each calendar
quarter.) A farm worker who is
paid $150 cash wages or who works
on some part of 20 different days
in the calendar year must be re-
ported by the farm employer.

Highway Patrol predicted this
week that 16 persons may be
killed in traffic crashes during
the 78 hour long Labor Day
week end and appealed to ev-
ery person to drive and walk
with caution and care.
"The Labor Day week end sig.
nifies the last fling at summer
holidays for most people and the
opening of schools in most sec-
tions of the state the day after
Labor Day," said Patrol Cmdr.
H. N. Kirkman. "We will have
to drive for all we are worth to
come through this long week end
without a traffic accident of one
sort or another."
The Patrol said that while
there will be a lot of people on
the highways going one place or
another for the week end, there
will also be those who will be
stretching their vacations to the
last minute and then they will
start the homeward trip "all
keyed up and in a big hurry."

tion is one less tha>n In.f+ vT~nrl.-
