The Company has also applied
this week to the Florida Public
Utilities Commission to establish
their rates. The company engin-
eers state that the rates will be
considerably less than any other
fuel sold in Port St. Joe, based on
usable BTUs and will be even less
than area natural gas rates in near-
by communities. The basic rate
will be 15c er therm, equivalent
to 100,000 BTUs and graduate down
to 10c per therm, depending on
the amount of gas used.

City Makes Plans
A delegation from Marvin Ave-
nue consisting of Bob Smith, Jr.,
D. E. White and David Mims ap-
peared at the City Commission
meeting Tuesday night requesting
the city create an alleyway be-
tween Marvin and Forrest Park.
The Board stated that there was
no alley designated for this street,
the area in which an alleyway is
desired is very low to be building
roadways and that the State Park
Service was drawing plans for For-
rest Park and they didn't know just
what was planned for the area as
Smith, who acted as spokesman
for the group pointed out that an
alley had been built behind Wood-
ward next to the park. The Board
pointed out that this alley had not
formally been dedicated but was
only a trail-on high ground-that
was being used by the residents.
The Board agreed to wait and
see if the Park Service provides
access roads in their drawings for
park development before making
a decision on the matter.
The City voted to endorse a pro-
posed celebration scheduled for De-
cember 7 in Port St. Joe this year.
The celebration, to be sponsored
by civic groups would be in obser-
vance of the 125th anniversary of
the signing of Florida's first Con-
stitution; the 25th anniversary of
the construction of the Centennial
Building which commemorates the
signing of the Constitution and
the 50th anniversary of the City of
Port St. Joe.
The City agreed to ask each civ
ic club in the city to name a rep-
resentative to a committee to plan
Commissioner Tom Coldewey
presented a further study on ad-
ditional water pump facilities at
the city treatment plant. Colde-
wey said that further studies show
that two pumps should be bought.
One pump, capable of 400 gallons
per minute be placed on automatic
to keep the filter beds working at
capacity. The second pump, would
te of 750 gallon per minute ca-
pacity and would be on stand-by.
The 400 gpm pump could be step-
ped up to higher production by
equipping it with a motor with
more revolutions per minute.
The City is advertising this week
for the two pumps.
Reports by the City Clerk rela-
tive to drivers tearing up grass at
the Holly Hill Cemetery prompted
the Commission Tuesday to de-
cide to lock the gates to the cem-
etery at dark. According to clerk
Williams, cars are racing about
the cemetery streets and cutting
into the grass, tearing up the lawn,
Along with this discussion came
a discussion for need of traffic
laws in the city. At present, very
few statutes actually appear on the
city books. In most cases the city
uses laws of the State of Florida,
which in many instances are inade-
quate for city driving rules.
The Board decided to look into
this matter further.
Chief of Police H. W. Griffin
was instructed to have his depart-
ment check city streets on their
daily rounds for traffic signs that
need repairing and replacing. Com-
missioner Nedley said that many
of the signs are damaged or knock-

With practically no comment, the
City Commission adopted its 1963-
64 budget Tuesday night.
When the question of adopting
the budget was brought up by Ma.
Sor Frank Hannon, Commissionei
Tom Coldewey stated, "I would like
to commend the City Clerk for the
completeness of the budget sub-
mii(-d to this Commission for ap-
proval. I think it is feasible ar..I
that the city may continue to im-
prove under the items contained
here (in the budget)". Coldewey
went on to note salary increases
for city employees in the budget
and commented that the city had
not as yet considered such raises,
but that probably they should do
The rew budget will require one
half mill in taxes less to finance
than did last year's budget.
The new budget will call fo- a
millage oy 13.2 as compared with
13.7 last year. This millage will
bring in $133,072.41 in revenue.
Last year's 13.7 mills brought in
$133,663.60. Additional taxable pro-
perty going on the city's rolls ac-
counts for the slight difference in
tax money received.
But, despite the cut in taxes, the
money total of the budget is some
$19,000.00 more than last year. The
budget total for this year is $251,-
672.41. Last year's total was $232,-
Increases in non-tax items of in-
come make up for the increased
budget at lower taxes. For in-
stance, the Florida Legislature's
new cigarette tax bill will increase
the City's returns from cigarette
taxes by $15,000. An increase in
the garbage collection fees last
year will bring in $5,000 more and
various other items of income are
Expenditures, too, are up slight-
ly over last year. The biggest in-
crease is due to creation of a new
account-Capital Outlay. This item
has $21,971.72 budget. This money
is being budgeted to create funds
for purchasing capital items such
as trucks, etc., as they are needed
rather than having to build up a
large budget in years when major
purchases are necessary. Already,
some $45,000.00 in new items has
been programmed including a new
fire truck pumper, two new trucks,
Kills Negro Man
Port St. Joe had its skein of 11
years with no trafffcfatealities in
the city limits broken early Sat-
urday morning, when Crawford B.
Bailey, 48, was killed by a run-
away auto near the I. W. Duren
According to witnesses Bailey
and another Negro, Major Hall,
were sitting on a bench in front of
a taxi stand on Main Street in
North Port St. Joe when they were
struck by a car owned by Ernest
More than a dozen witnesses tes-
tified to investigating officers that
Dixon started his car at the curb,
put it in gear and the accelerator
apparently stuck, because the car
engine roared at full speed and the
car lurched straight at the bench
on which Bailey and Hall sat. Both
men attempted to jump for safety
but Bailey slipped down and the
automobile's rear wheel ran over
his head crushing it. Hall was hit
by the car and thrown onto its
hood. Hall was thrown off the car
after traveling about 20 feet, into
some soft sand. Dixon was fighting
to bring the car under control. He
finally brought the car to a halt
about 50 yards from where it ran
away with him.
Bailey was apparently killed in
stantly. Hall was taken to the
Municipal Hospital and treated for
bruises and cuts.
The accident occurred at about
y:40 a.m. Saturday and was inves-
tigated by Chief of Police H. W.
Griffin assisted by Florida State
Trooper Ken Murphy ani Gull
County Deputy Sheriff Jim Bar-
No charges were filed in the ac
arid other equipment anticipated
by the Commission. These items
will be purchased as cash is made
The other main items of increase
were in streets and highways which
was budgeted for $5,000 more than
la5t year and $4,000 more for gai
stage and trash removal.
It was noted that even with the
increase in garbage rates, this ser-
vice of the city still lacks about
$16,000 income paying its own
The water and sewer department
has been budgeted for $111,503.86
for the coming year. This is $11,000
more than last year. This addition-
al money will be used to enlarge
the pumping capacity of the water
treatment and make some major
improvements in the sewer sys-
tem lift stations.
Looking over the budget, it was
noted that the water and sewer
department will require a $25,-
293.86 donation from the general
fund to meet its operational ex-
penses for the coming year. Last
year was about the same however,
discounting the major expenditures
for the new pumping facilities this

Civil Rights and Legal Wrongs
For the first time in the peacetime history of the United
States, it is proposed in legislation now pending before the
C-ongress to deny the right of trial by jury!
This is one of the more important (and least publicized)
aspects of the S.1731 and H.R. 7152 that legislative Trojan
Horse named "The Civil Rights Act of 1963" in which
dictatorial Federal control of business, industry, individual
citizens and the "sovereign" states is disguised as protection
of racial and religious minorities.
Under this insidious bill, the judgment of Federal in-
spectors, appointed to bring about social reforms, would
supersede our traditional and Constitutional judicial pro-
cesses. Through the sly device of eliminating criminal penal-
ties, those who drew the bill have made it so a violator of the
"public accommodations" section (Title II), would be haled
without hearing before a judge and placed under Federal in-
junction to cease and desist whatever act of discrimination
the Federal overseer may have charged him with. And the
penalty would be fine or imprisonment for contempt of court
from which there is no appeal.
Given this cloak of civil rights, the President would thus
have raw, unchallenged power. Similarly, under other pro-
visions of the bill, Federal control would be extended to
every home, every school, every business, every bank and to
every citizen who owns property or casts a vote. The presi-
dent or his political appointees would have the power to
tell the owners of every business whom they may hire, fire,
promote or demote; to call, foreclose or refuse loans; to ex-
clude individuals and businesses from federal programs, ac-
tivities, subsidies and benefits; to blacklist banks, contrac-
tors, schools, businesses and individuals. Think of that.
As one critic has said: "The Administration's bill pro-
poses, in effect, that the Congress abdicate, and return its
legislative powers over to the White House. The powers
here demanded are not the powers rightfully to be exercised
by a President in a free country. These are the powers of a
No citizen, whatever his color, race or religion for
this bill extends to all races and creeds should need fur-
ther urging to demand of his Senators (both of them) and
his Representative that they vote downS.1731 and H.R.7152

-Washington County News
One of the best ways to get a rise out of a newspaper-
man is to suggest that reading a paper is less important these
days than it used to be because radio and television provide
all the news a man needs. To which the newspaperman,
curbing a strong tendency to indulge in hot expletive, re-
torts that it just isn't so.
One reason is that broadcast news, generally speaking,
comes in bits and snippets. Another reason is that when all
the bits and snippets are put together at day's end (which
the listener really can't do) they do not total anything like
the coverage provided by a good newspaper.
'Listening to the news is fine for the quick word on
what's afoot. Reading the news is the thing for the man who
really wants to know what is going on in the world. Saying
so may be immodest, but it is true.
You wouldn't trust your loved one's health

FOREIGN AID CURTAILMENT
The Foreign Aid Bill, following
the action of the House, is the
most realistic one yet proposed.
Amendments added in House de-
bate closed several spending loop-
holes; one of the most notable be-
ing to raise the interest rate on
development loans to a minimu!n
of 2%. Previously, development
loans in most instances have
amounted to little more than a
gift, drawing no interest for the
first 10 years and three-fourths of
one per cent subsequently. This
despite the fact that it is costing
Uncle Sam 3% to 4% to borrow
money on which to operate the
Federal Government. Another ac-
tion of significance was the elim-
ination of the billion dollar gift
for a steel mill in India. Total cuts
in the bill reduce it nearly $1%,
billions below the original request
and this doesn't count the steel
mill. Further safeguards were
added to tighten the noose on
shipping to Cuba. The Administra-
tion has seemed reluctant to do
this without Congressional prompt-
ing. Even so, the foreign aid pro-
gram is too big, too wasteful, too
unrealistic witness my vote
MILITARY PAY INCREASE
I am deeply distressed by the
delays in the enactment of a pay
increase for service personnel. The
pay raise bill passed the House
back in the spring. An amended
version pasesd the Senate about a
month ago. To date, however, no
conference committee meetings
have been scheduled to insure the
completion of this necessary ob-
jective. This is an inexcusable sit-
uation which I trust will be cor-
rected within a short time.
The selection of Governor Farris
Bryant to be Chairman of the Sou-
thern Governors' Conference is an
outstanding distinction for him
and for Florida. Governor Bryant
has made Florida a very fine Gov-
ernor. Among other things, he re-
discovered Northwest F 1 o r ida.
Some of his predecessors seemed
to think it was a part of Alabama.
His recent appearance on "Meet
the Press" was effective and his
statements timely. Previously, he
had made an outstanding impres-
sion on the Senate Commerce Com-
mittee on the proposed civil rights
bills. I recall one classic statement
he made. He said, "Surely we
should remember that when the
majority loses its freedom, the
minority loses its hope for free-
*dom." He also said, "It would be
a tragic mistake if we tried to pur-
chase equality for minorities and
as part of the price gave up free-
dom for all."
ST. JOSEPH PARK
The declaration of surplus
for the St. Joseph Peninsula has
cleared the Office of the Secre-
tary of Defense and has been
sent to the House and Senate
Committees on Armed Services.
Approval by these committees
is anticipated. These are neces-
sary preliminary steps to nego-
tiations with the State of Flor-
ida for transfer of this property
for use as a state park. Govern-
ment agencies move slowly and
some of this is necessary for
the protection of the public. In
any event, the park plan is mov-
ing steadily forward. The pro-
posed new state park on St.
Joseph's Peninsula will be a
great asset to the recreational
advantages of the beautiful Up-
per Gulf Coast.
COMMUNISTS AND THE
MARCH ON WASHINGTON
Apologists have claimed that the
Communist party was not involved
in the civil rights demonstration in
Washington on August 28. Yet, the
House Un-American Activities Com-
mittee has shown clear involve-
ment with Communist front organ-
izations on the part of some of the
leaders in the march on Washing-
ton, and it is a known fact that
Communists always participate in
and encourage any activities which
will bring about discord in the
CIVIL RIGHTS AT
I am disappointed to note that
at the recent Southern Governors'
Conference the problem of Civil
Rights was ruled out and was not
discussed. This I consider regret-
table. The infamous Gesell Report
is fresh upon us, and its effects
may be far reaching. If Southern
leaders do not speak out in oppo-
sition, it will be assumed that
there is no organized opposition.
A strong and united effort can set
aside these efforts to use the mili-
tary organization to establish a
new social order.

A friend dropped into the law-

the other day-that's where Ben

gone. He'd thumbed a ride to We-

ways get where I'm going," he says.
"Never takes me long 'cause ev-

Matter of fact, Gulf County folks
take a little pride in Ben's me-
Last week a newcomer was ask-

Representative Williams?" An old
timer pointed at a dusty cross
roads intersection. "Stand right

Ben'll-probably get off the next

Williams is a licensed captain
of Gulf vessels of at least 100 gross

"But there's no doubt about it,"
he declares, "Now I'm a full time
legislator. There ain't no other

And associates agree, if Wil-

things at the pulp mill or looking
over the waterways. One of his big
interests during the 1963 session
of the Legislature was in a bill

(While it's obvious the writer
knows Ben Williams, it is equal-
ly as obvious that he has never

During the past year, almost 21,-
000 "delinquent" household em-
ployers were required to make
back reports' of wages they had
paid to cleaning women, maids,
and other household help after
their employees, or ex-employees,
applied for Social Security bene-
Based on the average of $1000 in
wages covered by these delinquent
reports, the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice collected about $1,200,000 in
back Social Security taxes from
these 21,000 employers, plus inter-
est and penalty, said John V. Car-
ey, Social Security District Man-
Since the law holds the employ-
er responsible for making the re-
ports and paying the Social Secur-
ity taxes due, the delinquent em-
ployer is liable for paying both the
employer's and the employee's
share of the back taxes. There is
no time limit if no report was
filed, Carey pointed out.
About 18 million men, wom-
en and children are now receiving
Social Security benefit checks each
month, Carey said, and about 3
million persons apply for old-age,
survivors, or disability benefits
each year. The average household
worker therefore probably knows
someone who is getting Social Se-
curity payments and is thus likely
to file a claim when she reaches
retirement age or has to stop
working because of disability.

BACK TO EARTH, OLD FASHIONED
ALTHOUGH HE "ATE CROW" Homer E. Hooks (left), Lakeland, congratulated
James (Jimmy) Kynes, Tallahassee, volunteer state chairman of the 1963 educational and fund-
raising Crusade of the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society. Kynes, and 65,000
other volunteers, this year raised $1,100,000 in voluntary contributions from citizens and busi-
ness interests throughout the state to further support the Society's year-round :ancer control
programs of public and professional education, cancer research and patient services. Under
Hooks' leadership in 1962, a Crusade fund record of more than '1,000,00 was raised for the
first time. Both Kynes and Hooks are elated about the results and extend personal thanks to
all volunteers and contributors who again participated in Florida's continuing fight against
Raising herbs and kissing young
maidens can be two exciting hob-
bies. But unless the wife-mate
gives special permission to wander
from matrimonial apron strings,
there are less hazards in growing
A small plot allocated to several
of the flavor plants will add inter-
est and piquant taste to the ordin-
ary round of vegetables. Herbs add
a delightful tang to dressing for
chicken, turkey and pork dishes.
Most herbs are quite easily
grown from seed, provided the soil
is well drained and not too rich.
Sandy, soil-plentiful in Florida-is
idcla.. for many flavor plants.
Other herbs favor damp, shady
spots. As an example, spearmint
does well in a shady spot near
a drippy faucet. (If the spigot isn't
old enough to leak, then turn it on
a wee bit.)
,A spot for growing your own
seasoning takes almost no area at
all. Often, you can squeeze the
plants into the "skips" between
311 Williams Avenue
the flower plants or along the bor-
der of the flower bed.
Select a site near the kitchen.
This will make it convenient to
dash out and snatch a few sprigs
of herbs for instant use. Planting
herbs in window boxes makes har-
vesting even easier.
Herbs tested for fall planting in
Florida are sage, sweet marjoram,
thyme, lavender, rosemary and
sweet fennel. Those suggested for
winter include dill, coriander and
Next spring you may plant basil,
chives, summer savory, catnip,bor-
age, hyssop, lemon verbena, tar-
ragon, mints and pot marjoram.
Sage is one of the few herbs that
still belongs to modern everyday
life. There are several varieties-
green, purple and variegated. The
type with oval leaves is most com-
mon. One or two plants will supply
the leaves for seasoning poultry
dressing, sausage and other meats.
Sweet marjoram was one of the
most popular herbs in the colonlai
garden. It, rose geranium, rose-
mary, lemon verbena and laven-
der are the five fragrant herbs
used by the early Americans to
Thyme is a favorite of the house-
wife when preparing the Thanks-
giving and Christmas feasts. The
most popular species of these flav-
or plants are lemon, golren and sil-
ver thyme. Growing thyme may be
a bit difficult for some, but is wor-
th the effort when judged palate-
Coriander is easy to grow. Like
dill, this spice plant is used to add
flavor to bread, poultry dressing,
curries, spiced meats and pickles.
Coriander is used in the same
manner as caraway seeds.
Harvesting and curing is the
most important part of the flaver-
growing hobby. The main point is
to gather each plant at the proper
stage of maturity and dry rapidly
in the shade, so that it will retain
flavor and color
Herbs when sufficiently dry are
crisp. Many of them are stored in
the powder form, and leaves
should be separated from the stalk
and crushed into a fine powder.
The knack for using herbs is of-
ten a well-guarded secret.

Some rules to follow in develop-
ing your own secrets include using
a light hand with herbs. You want
just enough flavor to compliment
your dish, but not crowd out the
flavor of the food.
Blends should be so subtle that
only you and an expert can tell
what herbs you have used.
If fresh herbs are used, chop
very fine so that more of the herb
oils can escape. Blending or heat-
ing with butter or salad oil is the
best way to draw out and extend
the flavor of herbs.
Soak dried herbs in a teaspoon
of water or lime juice for 15 min-
utes before using
For casserroles, and sauces, add
the finely chopped fresh or dried
herbs directly to the mixture. Re-
member, a little does a lot-with

Hears Report on
A filmed and oral report of the
type training National Guardsmen
get at summer camp was present-
ed to the Rotary Club Thursday by
Capt. Gerald S. Watkins and M-Sgt.
Eugene Harper of the Apalachicola
Captain Watkins gave the three
purposes of the guard: to keep an
available trained fighting force in
the U. S. at all times; to aid local
enforcement officers and to aug-
ment state police in times of emer-
One of the biggest innovations
of the National Guard recently has
been the placing of the Florida
Guard, under a Florida command
post. Formerly Florida units were
commanded from Alabama, Geor-
gia and North Carolina.
In the film presentation, M-Sgt.
Harper showed several scenes of
the Guard, which is an engineer
unit, training at Fort Stewart, Ga.
One interesting scene in the pic-
tures was a pontoon which the
guard unit assembled, advanced
troops across and dis-assembled in
a period of only 11 minutes. The
assembly was across a swift river
near Fort Stewart.
fice, then another election shall be
held two weeks from the date of
the first election, or September 24,
1963, at which time the two candi-
dates receiving the largest number
of votes in the former election shall
be voted on again.

Customers using gas for winter heating only may disconnect without cost, but will pay a
reconnection charge of $2.00.
According to L. P. Gas dealers, the heat content
of L. P. Gas is approximately 100,000 BTU per gal-
lon. Since a therm is equal to 100,000 BTU, the above
natural gas rates per therm are approximately equiv-
talent to the same number of cents per gallon of L. P.
Gas. Thus, a comparison between the rates of L. P,
Gas and natural gas can be easily made.
There Will Be Considerable Savings
Over Present LP Gas Rates
Natural gas rates are regulated by the Florida
public Utilities Commission. L. P. gas rates are not
regulated and are subject to change at the dealer's
