Dr. Hammond has issued an ur-
gent request to the researchers
here to make an additional effort
to find any of the subjects origin-
ally enrolled but who were lost
track of during the past year.
"This study will require the con-
'tinued rpa action of every sub-
ject for at least two moe years -to
assure best results," Dr. Hammond
said. "The higher percentage' that
can be maintained in checking Athe
fate of these people will have
much to do with the eventual suc-

Mrs. Porter further stated, "It
is a tragic fact to have to relate
that our particular area-The his-
tory of Northwest Florida-is the
least known lacunae, that is, the
least recorded history in the entire
United States of America. For
some unaccountable reason, histor-
ians, for the most part, over the
many years, have sorely neglected
and ignored it. This is doubly sad
because in some strange way it is
the printed page that outlives the
monument. Therefore, in the true
analysis, our purpose as a Commis-
sion is to dig out and find this
history and be the means of try-
ing to bring it to light".
Mrs. Porter's closing remarks
were: "It is in this way that we
plan to make known, in some small
way, some of Florida's most impor-
tant, vital and coldrful history,
Florida, whose history is greater
than that of any other state-be-
cause it was the first in the annals
of our nation."
William J. Rish was introduced
and he, in turn, introduced Charles
B. Smith, Gulf County Historian
who was the guest speaker. Mr.
Smith related Ithe history of the
Fort Place and,:expressed the debt
of gratitude that the Historical
Commission and all Gulf Countians
owed to Dr. Ralph E. Wager of
Panama City fqr collecting and pre-
serving these little known facts.
Dr. Wager's article on the Fort
Place appeared in The Florida His-
Mr. Smith stated that the Fort
Place was constructed in 1833 as
a refuge from hostile Indians. It
was a blockhouse type fort enclos-
ed within a two acre stockade form-
ed by verticle placed logs. Port
holes were built into the heavy
hewn log walls admitting light and
serving for the use of firearms.
Pioneers of Wewahitchka remem-
ber seeing the fort intact around
1900. It was dismantled about 1930
for its timber and -no remains are
Mr. Smith also related the his-
tory of the St. Joseph and Iola
Railroad which was 28 miles in
length and the longest in Territor-
ial Florida at that time. It was the
third railroad in Florida to use
steam locomotives, tie first being
its predecessor, the 4t. Joseph .and
Lake Wimico. Rates' were quoted
for transportation from Iola to St.
Joseph as they appeared in an 1839
edition of "The St. Joseph Times."
The rivalry between Apalachicola
and St. Joseph for the rich cotton
trade of the interiorwas discussed.
Mr. Smith's closing statement was,
"In commemorating these two
events of our county's historic past,
we should not lose sight of the
fact, that the events of history are
but a record of man's achievements
and his failures. It is to the pio-
neers we pay tribute on this day."
Jesse V. Stone introduced the
presentor of the marker, Ralph S.
Hager, Chief of Information and
Education for the Florida Board of
Parks and Historic Memorials.
George Y. Core delivered the ac-
ceptance speech and Mayor Harold
B. Canning of Wewahitchka un-
veiled the marker.
Claude Willoughby, District Su-
perintendent, Florida Park Service
was present for the ceremonies. Al-
so attending were the Gulf County

we'en Carnival posters was a diffi-
cult one. The students came up
with some very good ones which
you will see displayed in the var-
ious stores in Port St. Joe and on
the beaches; however, only four
prizes were awarded as follows:
First prize, from 4th, 5th, and
6th grades to Nancy Keiser. From
1st, 2nd and 3rd grades to Susanne
Second prize from 4th, 5th and
6th grades to Eddie Holland. From
1st, 2nd and 3rd grades to Ronnie
Although there were many good
ones, those so outstanding as to
deserve special mention were those
by Karla Strobel, Joe Tharpe, Ro-
ger Lee McIntosh and Sara Scott.
The Hallowe'en Carnival is to be
on Saturday, October 19 from 4 to
8 p.m., with the parade at 3:30.

CARD OF THANKS
It is impossible for me to see
each one who has shown me a,
kindness during my stay in the
hospital and since returning home
I want to take this means of say-
ing "Thank You" to my doctor and
nurses, to those who have come to
my home to care for me, to those
who have offered prayers for me,
to those who have prepared food
for me and my family, for the flow-
ed outdoor areas that may not be
available later. A vote for the A-
mendment will allow Florida to
borrow enough hard-cash to finan-
ce a land buying program that will
in turn assure the people that ev-
ery gate will not be closed, but that
some lands and water will remain
as public property.
Aldrich pointed out that this A-
mendment does not create or estab-
lish new taxes, but allows the sale
of revenue certificates to finance
an immediate outdoor recreation
program and that the certificates
will in turn be repaid by existing
ers, cards and messages of cheer. sources of revenue. Interest paid
Mere words cannot express my on revenue certificates will not be-
heart-felt gratitude. All I can say
is "Thank You" and may God's
richest blessings be upon each one.

TALLAHASSEE- All sportsmen
should circle the date of Novem-
ber 5, 1963, on their calendar as it
will be a red-letter day with a spec-
ial meaning for the future of out-
door recreation in Florida. Accord-
ing to A. D. Alrich, director, Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission,
citizens interested in the outdoors
will have the opportunity to ap-
prove an accelerated outdoor pro-
gram by voting for Constitution
Amendment number three at the
November fifth general election.
Constitutional Amendment num-
ber three would make immediate
funds available in order that an
outdoor recreation program may
be launched in 1963 rather than
waiting years for the necessary re-
venue to accumulate. Passage of
the amendment will allow the state
to obtain recreation sites while the
price-is right and to purchase need
gin to equal the rapidly increasing
value of recreation lands.
The important thing for sports-
men to remember is that a vote
in favor of the Amendment will
not be increasing taxes one cent. .
but will insure adequate recreation
areas not only for themselves, but
for their childern and grandchild-

Bible Toting Christians
From the Hattiesburg (Miss.) American
One of the things which disturbs us is the fact that in
many churches so few people carry a Bible with them to
Sunday School and/or worship service. Everyone seems
to think he has to be dressed in his .Sunday best, but the main
idea of going to learn more about God's Word is over-
looked to the extent that great numbers do not even have
the most basic piece of equipment.
We ran across a discussion of this matter this week in
the column, A Layman and His Church, written by Dr. L.
Nelson Bell, the well known Christian physician from North
Carolina who, incidentally is the father-in-law of evangelist
Here is what Dr. Bell had to say, and we pass it on with
the hope that it may produce a few more "Bible toters" in
(And we pass it on in the hopes that it might create a
few more "Bible toters" in Port St. Joe--Ed.)
There are circles where some Christians are spoken
of in derision as "Bible toting Christians," the implication
being that Christians who carry their Bibles to church are
Admitting that there may be a few Christians who
carry Bibles as an outward sign of piosity, the fact remains
that a Christian who does not take his Bible is the one who
Imagine a soldier going into battle without his weapons!
Imagine a surgeon set for an operation without his knife!
Imagine a gardener trying to do his gardening without
Unfortunately, many people, do not carry their Bibles
to church because there is-noneed for it. A- text .may be
taken but the "sermon" has to do with secular matters -
social, political or economic. Or, Bibles may not be needed
because the references are not taken from the Bible but from
Some churches supply Bibles in the pews and this is at
least a gesture in the right direction. The trouble with such
an arrangement is that people cannot mark or make use of
the Bibles as they could in day by day study.
Christians should carry their Bibles to church for a
number of reasons. First of all because the Bible is, or
should be, central in all preaching. It is the source of in-
formation and truth and the final authority for faith and
The Bible is also a badge for believers, a mute testimony
to one's identification with the Church. We should never
be ashamed of being seen with a Bible.
Christians entering the door of the sanctuary with
Bibles in hand are also a silent witness to the preacher that
they came to hear the Word of God proclaimed, not the
opinions of men. Paul commended the hearers in Berea
because they, checked his preaching by the Scriptures:
"They received the Word with all readiness of mind, and
searched the Scriptures daily, whether these things were
so" (Acts 17:11).
That the average church member is Biblically illiterate
is a tragic fact. Biblical literacy comes through a daily,
consistent and prayerful study of the Word. This study
should be reinforced and supplemented by Biblical preaching
and Christians should have their Bibles in hand for reference
and for confirmation of the message.
Carrying Bibles to church is also a witness to the chil-
dren in the home. They are familiar with their own use
of text books in school and they should learn the greatly
needed lesson that the Bible is the greatest of all text books
-God's message to men.
If Christians would make a routine practice of carry-
ing their Bibles to church we believe they would receive
added blessings from the services, others would be re-
minded of the importance of the Holy Scriptures, and, the
minister would be encouraged and strengthened in his own
efforts to impart God's truth.
Give it a try!

The new Lelah G. Wagner Nurs-

in Panama City is scheduled to
open within the next 50 to 60 days
with formal "open house" cere-
monies to be held a few days later
according to Mrs. Lelah G. Wag-
ner, lessee-administrator of the
new facility, and John Brock, own-
er and builder of the project. Mrs.
Wagner is a registered nurse and
widely known for her work in the
care of the aged.
Central heating and air condi-
tioning along with all-new furni-
ture and equipment will be featur-
ed in the home. All beds will be
Simmon hospital beds with the hi-
lo feature and safety rails, thus
affording the maximum in comfort
and safety. Recreation and enter-
tainment programs will be innau-
gurated according to Mrs. Wagner,
with transportation to the beaches
and other points of interest for
those able to engage in such activi-
Private ambulance service will be
afforded the guests free of charge
to and from hospitals within the
city should the need arise, and
free transportation by private am-
bulance will be available to all en-
tering the home within a radius
of 200 miles should such services
be needed. Registered nurses will
be on duty or available at all times
and licensed practical nurses along
with aides and other personnel will
carry professional services around
the clock, Mrs. Wagner stated. The
45-bed facility will have at least
30 employees at capacity accord-
ing to J. E. Speed, business mana-
ger for Mrs .Wagner. Mr. Speed
also stated that this 66% employee-
patient ratio ranks among the high-
est in the nation, and is the same
as that used at the Bonifay Nursing
Home in Bonifay, which is owned
and operated by Mrs. Wagner.
Meals will be served in bed, in
the room or at the dining table, as
the guests prefer, and menu selec-
tion will be featured, Mrs. Wagner
stated. The guests may have a phy-
sician of their own choice, and the
facilities and operations of the
home will be such as to more than
meet the requirements and stand-
ards of the accreditation board of
the American Hospital Association.
The home is beautifully located
on 19th Street between Deer and
Park Avenue, in close proximity
to hospitals, drug stores and the
business district. It is just across
the street from the City Park.
"Service is all I have to offer and
I want to offer lots of it", Mrs.
Basic prices will begin at $225,
$250 and $290 per month for the
multi-bed room, semi-private rooms
and private rooms respectively.
Plans are "on the board" according
to Mr. Brock for a 250-bed expan-
sion program to begin next year.
