"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1963 NUMBER 11
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
The events of the last few days
have.most surely put a damper on
the holiday season coming up for
most of the nation.
For some it may seem a bleak
Thanksgiving ... seemingly not
much to be thankful for.
But, we still have much to be
thankful for on this Thanksgiving
We are a young nation, compar-
ed to others over the world, and,
have evolved in civilization to the
point where it takes an almost de-
mented' radical to shoot a head of
State. In other nations not so far
away, so-called civilized people
shoot each other and' kill entire
governments just because of a dis-
agreement of minor points.
We should be thankful that such
a tragic thing as the assassination
of a president does not spell the
doom of the democratic system
under which we live. We are shak
en by the events, but the nation
goes on in its mission of spreading
freedom to the world. This isn't
so in other nations.. Killing of a
head of state, usually means a re-
versal of field for the government.
Even though at times we didn't
agree with President Kennedy, we
should be thankful that we have
strong and purposeful young men
ready and eager to serve their
country for the sake of service and
not for the sake of personal gain.
We admire the late President for
his courage, of which he was abun-
dantly blessed. And we think it
evident that his office was truly a
service of love of country, since
te had all the "gain" we as indi-
viduals label as "gain" in this day.
And, we are thankful that such
an event as the assassination can
not' plunge our nation into a
state of seige. and martial law as,
it would have, in many other na-:
tions of the world.
It is notable, that in our history as
a nation only -four presidents have
inet with untimely ends. Several
other attempts have been made.
but by and large, in this land of
the free and home of the brave, a
President is safer than he would be
in any other country in the world
-and for this we are thankful.

Both teams played to a dead-
lock in the first quarter which saw
Apalachicola drive to the Shark

the first play of the second quar-

extra point attempt was blocked,
giving them a 6 to 0 lead. With 17
seconds to go in the second quar-
ter, Chapman scored again on an
eight-yard pass play.
Neither team drew blood in the
third period, but the Sharks fin-
ally caught fire in the final quar-

Glidden Plant Is
Crippled By Fire
Fire raged through a rosin treat
ing unit at the Glidden Compan3
plant here in Port St. Joe Sunday
afternoon doing an estimated $40,
000 in damages, according to com-
The fire started about 1:15 from
a ruptured rosin line on the treat-
ing station, catching the rosin on
fire and burning for over an hour
before the fire was completely put
Rosin in this particular area is
treated under heat and is brought
to the flash point, but kept in lines
so it won't burst into flames. When
air hit the rosin from the ruptured
line, it burst into flames.
Quick action by the plant opera-
tors on duty at this time, L. C. Da-
vis and Richard Saunders, kept the
fire confined to the small area, and
had it under control when Port St.
Joe Volunteers arrived on the
The fire's destruction will halt
the plant's rosin operations for a
few weeks while repairs are being
made, but the other activities of
the plant will continue, according
to Robert Fox, plant manager.
I Wasn't Lost; But
Like Mark Twain, reports of
my being lost are greatly exager-
I was not lost Saturday evening
in the woods. I stuck my wetted
finger to the breeze, read the
moss on the tree, and took 15
steps and sure enough, there was
the river, right where I had left
But came 7:00 p.m. and my
hunting partner Woodrow Hen-
derson had not yet came out of
the woods. Either the wind had
quit blowing on his wetted fin-
ger or the deer had eaten the
moss off the tree.
When 7:30 came and Woodrow
still was not back to the boat,
and my hollering and whistling
had gone unanswered, I drew the
conclusion that he was lost.
And at 10:30 p.m. when Ed
Johnson and the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department boat oper-
ated by Deputies Wayne White
and Jim Barfield brought him
out of the woods, he confirmed
Woodrow admitted that, in-
deed, he had been lost,
I felt good in two ways. I had
been hunting with him for ten
years and never have seen him
turned around in the woods, re-
gardless of weather conditions.
Number two reason: I would
have hated to have the calling of
the Sheriff's Department on my
conscious if he had not been lost.

Two Area Homes
Damaged by Fire
Two Port St. Joe area homes
were seriously damaged by fires
during the past week, according to
fire chief R. H. Eellzey.
Last Thursday afternoon; the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Webb in Oak Grove was badly dam-
aged in the kitchen and living
room by a fire of undetermined ori-
gin. The home was closed complete-
ly which kept the blaze from
spreading until the fire department
could arrive on the scene.
Saturday afternoon -at, '7:15 a
small frame house on Avenue F
belonging to I. W. Duren called
the Fire Department to action. The
quick response by the Department
confined the flames to the rear of
the small dwelling and quickly
brought the fire under control.
Origin of the fire was not de-
termined by the Fire Department.
The County Commission met
Tuesday night in regular session.
Expected to be on the agenda

at the last meeting and guide-
lines set up for checking the
petition, it is expected that the
matter of officially calling for
the election will be near at the

cuss the County Insurance program.
The following insurance represen-
tatives were present: Rex Addison,
Frank Hannon, M. P. Tomlinson
and Frank Graddy. After lengthy
discussion the Chairman requested
all insurance agencies in Gulf Coun-
ty to get together and decide on a
plan and that said plan be present-
ed at the next meeting.
Hon. Frank Hannon, Mayor of
the City of Port St. Joe, appeared
before the Board and told of the
plans for Constitution Day to be
held on December 7, 1963, in Port
St. Joe, and then requested the

event. After discussion, the Board

T. J. McConnell appeared before
the Board and told of plans now be-
ing formulated to construct a plant
to make laminations from paper
board; that the plant will be locat-
ed on his property on the Over-
street Highway. He then told of
the bad repair of the Wetappo
County Road and of an accident he
and his wife had on said road dur-
ing a rain storm. He requested the
County to keep this road in good
condition because it is the shortest
route from Panama City to the
plant site and further requested
the county to pay for his damages
suffered in the accident. The chair-
man announced that the Wetappo
County Road has now been re-

the Board that the property has
now been declared surplus and the
State of Florida has filed its appli-
cation with the General Services
Administration to purchase said
property; that the only apparent
hold up from this point would be
the access roads to the Park site.
He stated that he did not agree
with the report of Commissioner
Graham as to route of the access
road; that he has recently made an
inspection of all possible routes
and finds that a route not inspect-
ed by Commissioner Graham would
be much cheaper; that he would
like to take all the Commissioners

The Board then considered its

that it looks as if this matter will

therefore, the Board should call an

icy offered by Union Bankers In-
surance Company of Dallas, Texas,
and the Road Department selected
the Gulf Life Insurance Company
of Jacksonville, Florida, which is
the policy now carried by the em-
ployees. After much discussion,
Commissioner McDaniel stated that
because a majority of the employ-
ees wanted the Gulf Life policy, he
moves that the county and employ-
ees purchase the policy offered by
Gulf Life Insurance Company. Com-
missioner Player stated that be-
cause the majority of the employ-
ees wanted the Gulf Life policy, he
would second the motion. The mo-
tion was unanimously carried.
Whereupon, there was a motion
by Commissioner Graham, second-
ed by Commissioner Player and
unanimously carried, that the coun- WORLD T
ty purchase the policy offered by
the Gulf Life Insurance Company;
that the County participate in the
premiums as provided by law; that
the county pay a flat rate of $5.00
on each employee's policy, provid-

The international unrest and ten-

C. America and Its Food Surplus
Our population is increasing at
a rate calculated to remove our
politically embarrassing food sur-
plus in but a few years.
In our land of apparently un-end-
ing surpluses, we are not only
shortsighted but complacently apa-
thetic about our food supply. The
relatively small cost of our surplus
is today a major political issue.
Yet, it is really a minor expense
for the insurance it bestows upon
the income of the farmer and the
cost of food to the consumer. A 5
percent food surplus costs the na-

A. Man's Most Significant Problem
By far the most significant prob-
lem facing man today, is the pro.
duction of food and fiber to meet
the necessities of life. For even
with the so-called food surpluses
which currently plague the U. S.
and the Western World, if all the
food of the world were divided
equally among the people of the
world, we would all be in a state
B. Situation Is Becoming
The population of the world has
now passed three billion and is in-
creasing at an incredible 55 million
per year (almost 7000 per hour).
This population explosion is not
confined to the countries of Asia
and Africa, but in our country the
population is reasonably-predicated
to pass 400 million by the year
Available land for food produc-
tion will soon fall below 2 acres
per person in North America and
one half acre per person for the
world as a whole.
It is obvious that this could
spell catastrophe for our type of
civilization, unless food and fiber
tion only a fraction of what a simi-
lar deficit would cost the house-
wife in increased food cost.
Today our food surplus would
hardly carry us for seven lean
months and if used to feed the
hungry people around the world,
it would be exhausted in less than
two months. Thus, even with our
most proficient agriculture and
our surplus abundance we are, but
for the grace of God, not more
than a year or two at the most from
starvation right here in this coun-
"Fewer and fewer farmers are
producing more and more food and
fiber, on les sand less land, for
more and more people, for less
and less profit.
D. Agricultural Efficiency
1. Appreciating our Agriculture.
We fail to appreciate what agricul-
ture has and presently is meaning
to the progress and development of
2. Let's look at some of the facts
of our Agricultural Efficiency. In
U. S., 10 out of 100 are farm work-
ers. In Russia, 40 out of 100 are
farm workers. In Communist China
70 to 80 out of 100 are farm work-
ers. We completely out-distance
the world with our agriculture,
and to the hungry world, food is
number one importance.
By requiring fewer and fewer to
produce more and more food, our
labor force becomes larger to pro-
duce commodities that afford us a
higher and higher standard of liv-
ing in an expanding economy.
Today's average farm worker in
the U. S. produces more than three
times as much as he did 20 years
Our population has climbed 80
million since 1930. Yet, the total
man hours of farm labor have
dropped from 24 billion hours to
10.3 billion. Using less than half
the man power and 12 million few-
er acres than 1920, today's farmers
are producing twice as much.
All the world, including the Rus-
sians, are more impressed with
our agricultural accomplishments
than any other activity. This is
America's greatest success story.
It seems real strange that so
many good American people use
our greatest success story as their
favorite "whipping boy". Maybe
poor public relations is the penal-
ty of success.
In most countries of the world
people spend half or more of their
take-home pay for food. In U. S.,

The WMU of the First Baptist

give praise and thanks to God for
all His blesisngs, a time for self

the program. Scriptures were read
on prayer and the discussions on
the needs of prayer in the whole
world, especially at this time of
confusion and stress.
Prayer can give us answers to
problems in our homes, churches
and our nation.
Sixteen women were present and
it is believed all went away in-

love for God and His work.

went on to explain that some
housewives do not know they must
report wages paid to domestic em-
"This report," he said, "is made
to the District Director of Internal
Revenue for any household employ-
ee who makes $50 or more cash
wages in a three month period. If
your employer pays you as little
a s $4 a week o n a regular basis,
your work is covered by Social Se-

make a report for you; and if more
than one person pays more than
$50 a quarter, each of them must
report your wages."
Carey said that household work-
ers should get in touch with his of-
fice if their work is not being re-
ported. They can get a copy of the
booklet, "Social Security and Your
Household Employee," which tells
employers h o w to get the forms
they need to make the report.

I Returns From World Trip
July 1, Miss Lottie Hall, local Jehovah's
Witness missionary and mother, Mrs. Grace
Hall of Deland, left America for a mission-
ary tour around th world. They traveled
with 600 other witness misisonaries on an
itinerary designed by the Watchtower So-
ciety to fulfill Matthew 24:24 and Revela-
tion 14:6 about bearing the "Everlasting
Good News" of God's heavenly kingdom and
peace on earth to all nations.
Miss Hall found the sightseeingtours in-
spiring. They saw the Hebrew form of Je-
hovah's name above church doors, on castle
towers, in old manuscripts and engraved on
stone tablets. They found thousands of
Christian Bibles in non-Christian homes.
Among the unusual sights were the Da-
chau concentration camp torture chambers,
beautiful Milan Cathedral, Cedars of Leban-
on, the gold Buddha and Buddhist hell, the
floating market on Thailand's Chao Phy Ri-
ver where they got stranded in midstream
and had to be rescued, snake and octapus
steaks in Rangoon, snake charmers in Sin-
gapore and many other sights.
Miss Hall says due to the dry summer, the
Jordan River was narrow and blue, the Dead
Sea was calm and lifeless and the 2,000 year
old olive trees in the Garden of Gethsamane
were truly awe inspiring.
In the picture, Miss Hall poses in Athens,
Greece with Miss Maro Dratsoumi on the
steps of the Areopagus (Mars Hill) where the
Greeks arrested the Apostle Paul.

On Love and Care
A beautiful garden is like the

flowers also thrive on love and
So to keep from being divorced
from a living beauty, start off your
romance of flowers quite warmly.
That is, bake the soil prior to fill-

soil insures healthy seedlings for
transplanting. Baking soil at 160
degrees for two hours will kill ne-

Damping-off of seed and seed-

There are two types of damping-

phase of the disease is most severe
in cool, wet soils when germination
Post-emergence disease attacts
the seedlings. Succulent stems be-

at the ground line. Plants wilt and
fall. The roots decay and plants die.
Treating flower seeds with pro-
tectant dusts such as Arasan, Cer-
esan, Cuprocide, Semesan or Sper-
gon prevents losses. It takes prac-
tically no time at all.
For small packets of seeds, place
a pinch of the protectant dust in
the packet with the seed and shake
it vigorously until all the seed are
coated. This coating of fungicide
will kill or inhibit the organism on
the seed, or in the soil, and provide
temporary protection during ger
Dr. Miller advises sowing seed in
flats rather than in the open. By
using flats it is easier to control
growing conditions-especially dur

Almost any shallow box can be
converted into a flat. Be sure the
bottom of the box has plenty of
holes or cracks to allow good drain
age. Soil for the flat should be fer

Before transplanting the annuals

the garden soil of nematodes, fungi
