Port St. Joe Head Coach Bobby
Brown was the guest speaker to
the Rotary Club last Thursday.
-Coach Brown stated that his pro-
gram was extremely short on 9th
and 10th grade candidates, but
that additional boys were coming
out in the football program from
these grades every day. "These
boys are our future team, and we
need them", Brown said.
Brown said that before the sea-
son is over, he hopes to field a "B"
squad and secure games for them
As for the season ahead, Brown
predicted a good season. "We have
a tough schedule", he said, "but
we are planning on a good season".
He said the Sharks were strong on
defense but the offense would be
a bit spotty, "until we get more
experience, and the boys make up
'heir mind to 'go' ".
As for the Apalachicola game,
cown predicted that it would be
)ugh because of Apalachicola's
,peed. He predicted that the Sharks
would win last Friday night if it
rained so Apalach's speedy backs
would'be slowed down.
Well, it didn't rain, so we didn't
win but it was a good game
Guests of the club were Bob Rice
of Rockport, Texas and Byron Mc-
Kissack of Carrabelle.

fans in history, the Port St. Joe
Sharks, under the leadership of
their new head' coach, Bobby
Brown, lost their 1963 grid opener
in Apalachicola Friday night 6-0.
The score is indicative of the
type game watched by an estimat-
ed 3,000 fans. It was tit for tat right
down to the final minute.
The two teams were. Very evenly
matched with the Sharks display,
ing a very good defense and a
sputtering offense.. The Chapman
team featured a gdod running at-
tack. Fumbles and' poor pass re-
ception probably cost the Sharks a
victory. St. Joe lost four fumbles:
and quarterback Al Cathey. wds
able to connect with only four of
his 13 passes. Cathey did an ex-
cellent job with his passes but his
receiver just couldn't hang' on to
The game was a seesaw battle
during the first half atid finally
the Chapman team produced the
game winning tally late in the
third quarter on ah, 1il yard dash
by the fIullback Mitchell branltey.,
The Sharks got a couple of good
drives going in the fourth prio4
but they were stymied by. fIm.
Jimmy Goodman played out-
standing defensive ball and also
snagged a couple of passes fot nice
gains. Also playing good defensive
ball were Paul Robbins, Bill Ver-

"Gulf County residents should
file their Social Security claims be-
fore they retire in order to insure
prompt payment of benefits," John
V. Carey, District Manager of the
Panama City Social Security Office
said this week.
Many people of retirement age
do not get their first Social Secur-
ity checks as early as they might.
simply because they waited too
long to apply for their benefits,
Carey pointed out.
Applications may be filed any
time within three months of when
a person wants benefits to start.
Since the average processing time
of a claim is six weeks, Carey ad-
vised people to take advantage of
this early filing and submit their
applications as soon as possible.
Many claims are delayed because
the applicants do not have the
necessary information or papers

(During the next three weeks,
The Star will be running a series
of three articles put forth by the
Secretary of State of Florida ex-
plaining the three amendments
to the Florida Constitution, to
Be voted on November 5. The
editors of The Star hope that you
follow these articles and maybe
they will help you to intelligent-
ly make up your mind on cast-
ing your ballot.)
AMENDMENT NO. ONE
T hi s proposed constitutional
amendment would transfer to the
"off-year," or nonpresidential year,
the election of Florida's highest
state officials-the Governor, Sec-
retary of State, Attorney General,
Treasurer, Comptroller, Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction and
Commission of Agriculture. To ac-
complish this change ,the amend-
ment provides for an initial two-
year term for each of these offi-
cials beginning in 1965. After that
time, they would be elected to reg-
ular four-year terms.
The Governor, elected to the
two-year term in 1964, would be
permitted to run for a full four-
year term in the 1966 elections.
Thereafter, Florida's traditional
prohibition against Governors' suc-
ceeding themselves would be in
effect. The six other Cabinet offi-
cers, however, would be permitted
to continue to succeed themselves
Benefits of the Amendment
1.-It is a nonpartisan election
reform which has been adopted
by a majority of the states. Major
states with strong two-party sys-.
tems which have switched to the
off-year elections for top state of-
ficials include New York, Califor-
nia, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
2.-Placement of the elections of
the Governor and Cabinet in the
off-year would create more inter-
est in off-year elections, thereby
tending to stimulate a greater turn-
out of voters.
Traditionally, balloting in the
off-year has been extremely low
because of the small number of
important offices at stake. For ex-
ample, only 939,207 votes were
cast in the 1962 off-year elections
compared to 1,544,180 in the presi-
dential-year elections of 1960.
3.-By separating the major
state and national elections, this
proposal would give the voters a
better opportunity to study the
merits of the individual candidates.
It also would help prevent non-
qualified candidates from riding
into state office on the coat tails of
a momentarily-popular national
4.-Separation of the state and
national elections also would give
the voters a better opportunity to
scrutinize the state and national
issues at stake in the elections. The
issues at stake in the two levels
or government are almost invar-
iably separate and distinct and can
be better considered b ythe voters
apart from each other.
5.-It would shorten the presi-
dential-year ballot which is far too
long for intelligent voting. In sev-
eral counties, the ballot is so long
that two voting machines are re-
quired to accommodate the entire
slate of candidates.
6.-It would give Florida increas-
ed strength in determining the
course of national party politics
because our Governor, the natural
leader of the state delegation at
party conventions, would still be
politically strong at convention
time instead of a "lame duck" in
the waning months of his term.
Such leadership would give Flor-
ida more influence in the selection
of party nominees and platform.

I am reminding the Administra-
tion that Cuba is with us still and
insisting upon an end to all allied
trade with the communist nation
of the Caribbean. We must take
stronger measures to isolate Cuba
and to hasten Castro's downfall or
we will perpetually have on our
doorstep a breeding place for com-
munism. It has been well estab-
lished that Cuba is now the prin-
cipal training ground for commun-

The only transaction in the Cap-
ital Outlay Reserve Fund since 1956
have been very profitable to this
Board and the tax payers of our
county. In 1956 the Board was fac-
ed with the problem of financing
$50,000,00 to pay for our two
Health Center buildings. The law
required the county to issue certifi-
cates for this purpose. I suggested
to the Board that the Capital Out-
lay Reserve Fund finance this pro.
ject and earn the interest that the
law provided must be paid on the
certificates. Upon proper resolu-
tion duly adopted by the Board
and advertised according to law,
the Capital Outlay Reserve Fund
purchased five certificates for $50,-
000.00. The following is the manner
these certificates were re-paid to
the Capital Outlay Reserve Fund: .
Date Int. Rec. Prin.

The county made $8,500.00 in
cash on this action, plus a savings
of an unknown amount had the
county validated revenue certifi-
cates in the Courts and then sold
same to a private concern on bids.
The only other activity in this
fund was when on May 14, 1963,
this Board duly adopted a resolu-
tion authorizing the Capital Outlay
Reserve Fund to purchase a note
against the County Road and
Bridge Fund in the amount of $8,-
622.00, but only paying $8,222.00
for said note. On or before Janu-
ary 20, 1964, the Capital Outlay Re-
serve Fund will be repaid its $8,-
222.00, plus $400.00 interest. No
one need remind you that this is
double the interest that would have
ordinarily been paid had that same
money remained in the bank.
I certainly want the public to
know that this Board, or any other
Board since I have been Clerk has
never "juggled" any money from
fund to fund. (end)
Thomas McDaniel, Wild Life Of-
ficer, Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission of the State of Florida
appeared before the Board and
read a memorandum from the
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission stating that $50,000.00 was
available for Boat Ramp Construc-
tion and he then explained this
program and informing the Com-
mission that said program must
be completed in 60 days. He recom-
mended that this Board take advan-
tage of this program by requesting
his Department to construct what-
ever ramps the Board thought best
for public use. Mr. McDaniel told
the Board that right of way was
already available at the East end
of the Dam Road and that a ramp
could easily be constructed at that
location. In a discussion that fol-
lowed, sites at Overstreet, St. Jos-
eph's Bay and along the Gulf were
discussed as possible sites for
ramps. There was a motion by
Commissioner Graham and second-
ed by Commissioner Kennedy, that
this Board at its next meeting se-
lect three sites for boat ramps;
that a resolution be then adopted
requesting the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission to con-
struct ramps at said sites. Upon
vote the following voted: AYE:
Graham, Kennedy and the chair-
man. NAY: McDaniel and Playe':.
Commissioner Player said he vot-
ed against the motion because any
civic organization or any group -if
citizens could make the same rec-
ommendation; that he was not
against the public getting free
Commissioner Kennedy told the
Board of the urgent need for a
walkway across the bridge at Pat-
ton Bayou and told of the danger
to the school children having to
