City Takes Up Weigi
Stray Dogs, Bike Ri
What to do about stray and nui-
sance dogs again came up for dis-
cussion at Tuesday's city commis-
Mayor Frank Hannon offered the
opinion that an ordinance prepar-
ed by Attorney Costin was not too
stringent, but served to give the
city the power to control the dog
nuisances and stray dogs.
Commissioner Coldewey said that
he agreed with the .ordinance, but
that he didn't see how the city
could enforce the ordinance with
present personnel, and that he felt
there was no need to have a pro-
vision on the books that the city
could not work.
All the Commission agreed that
some law needed to be enacted to
require rabies innoculations of
dogs and they will attempt to do
this at the next meeting.

Sizeable Growth In
According to records on appli-
cations for building permits in
the City Hall, Port St. Joe had
$395,539.00 worth of new con-
struction and expansion during
the past year.
Of this amount, $186,000.00
was spent on 14 new homes con-
structed within the city limits
of Port St. Joe. It was noted by
City Clerk J. B. Williams that
these were "round figures" and
were probably shy of the actual
value of the homes.
A total of $196,500.00 was re-
corded for major construction,
which included three churches
and two store buildings.
Some $33,039.00 was spent by
local business houses in renovat-

Board Told Need For More
County School Facilities
Hubert Richards, Gulf County
Supervisor for the Board of Educa-
tion, appeared before the Board of
Public Instruction at its regular
meeting Tuesday, to inform that
body of a coming crisis in the Gulf
county school system.
"The day is fast approaching,
when we must make a major deci-
sion," said Richards, in referring
to the physical and instructional
facilities at all Gulf County schools.
Taking the schools, one by one,
Richards pointed out needs, immed-
iately in all of the facilities with
the exception of the Port St. Joe
Elementary. The needs there are
present, but not so dire as in other
schools of the county.
At the Port St. Joe High School,
Richards pointed out that the
science and home economic facili-
ties were entirely inadequate from
the standpoint of room and facili-
ties to do the proper job. "Future
pupil expansion will even aggra-
vate this situation," he said.
Richards also pointed to three
areas of need, that has been in the
forefront for some time-that of
needed library, lunchroom and
dressing and shower facilities.
The Board is now taking steps
to construct a new lunchroom at
the Port St. Joe High School.
The present area now occupied
by the library and lunchroom
will be utilized as library facili-

Gulf County School Costs Are Less
Than National Average, Says NEA
Gulf County spends $66.48 less annually per pupil than the
national average of $433.00, statistics from the National Education
Association (NEA) disclosed this week.
The county currently spends $366.52 annually on each pupil-
just slightly above the state average which is $342.00 per pupil.
The NEA'S annual report showed that Gulf County spends
more than the average pupil expenditures of two other states:
South Carolina with $265 and Mississippi with $241. Alabama
spends an average of $280, to be below Gulf also.
The figures are current expenditures only, not including
capital outlay, interest on school bonds and other programs.
Curernt expenditures include amounts spent for general
control, instruction, operation, maintenance, fixed charges, and
such services as health, transportation, food and attendance.
Hubert Richards, Gulf County Supervisor, said the figures
were compiled on an estimated rate of absenteeism. He said av-
erage attendance was about 94 percent.
Other counties in the state comparable with Gulf in size
spend the following amounts per pupil per year for education:
Charlotte, $437; Monroe, $423; Collier, $394; Levy, $393 and
science facilities were so limited that this month a survey of physi-

nounced this week that he will
not seek re-election to his office

a remarkable job with what we
have been given to work with,
and for 24 years I have been try-

to produce it, instead of asking
what the needs are and where
they are greater. Everybody
seems to have a pet project in-

it is time that the people start-

We are still Pilgrims
We no longer give thanks around a rough wooden
table in a forest clearing. Our problems and
rewards have taken different shapes too, but
they are basically the same.
iWe are still making a-pilgrimage, the same
peareh for a fuller and more fruitful life under
freedom of religion. And we are still thankful
for the faith that sees us through adversity
*and guides us on that pilgrimage.
Thanksgiving Day was named for its,meaning
'-the day that we come together to give thanks
for our faith and our full life ... and to

This Thanksgiving Day, give your thanks,

Evidences Show City Is Growing
A chance remark the other day that Port St. Joe was
going backward and losing population, prompted us to look
into the situation.
This person opined that the number of empty houses
in the city portended a decrease in population.
But, such is not the case. The population is steadily in-
creasing. To-back up our argument, you have but to look
at several barometers ... the increase of electrical, water,
telephone .-.. and Star ... customers, shows a growth in
The myth of a growing glut of houses on the market is
soon burst when you see that last year 14 new homes were
built in the city of Port St. Joe. The value of these homes
amounted 'to $186.000. In addition to these homes, some
$109,539.00 worth of commercial -buildings also were con-
New houses aren't built; businesses don't expand, and
new churches aren't built in an area where the population is
Admittedly, Port St. Joe isn't expanding by leaps and
pounds but we are growing slowly and healthily. This
type of growth is to be most desired.
"Dog Ordinance" Tests City Dads
The City Commission literally has a dog by the tail and
is seeking a way to let go.
-On hand for decision is an ordinance to regulate dog nui-
iances in the city, without penalizing dog lovers and owners.
Of course, most ordinances are copied from ordinances adopt-
ed by other municipalities and reported by the Florida League
of Municipalities, as being workable and effective. But most
of the "dog ordinances" require impounding of all dogs found
running loose without a license tag.
Enter the city dad's delimma.
Most dogs in Port St. Joe belong to someone. They are
pets. And the nature of the dogs of the city are such as those
of the children of the city.. .Port St. Joe is their home and
playground and they use it all! How is the police depart-
ment going to ake someone's pet into custody when they
know that it is a pet and who it belongs to? And such an
activity makes more work for an already small police force
. and requires a pound... and feeding... and bookkeep.
But, it is almost a necessity that laws be provided to
require rabies innoculation for pets. But how can one re-
quire an act be done, without providing penalties if the act
is not done?
If the Commission can do this that is regulate
the presence of dogs that have not been innoculated or dogs
that are a nuisance. and not arouse the ire of some dog
owners through the control methods. we will recommend
that each and everyone of the city Board of Commissioners
be appointed as life-time members to- the U. N. they are

The filing of a correct and com-
plete income tax return has always
been important, but the installa-
tion of the Automatic Data Pro-
cessing System. by the Internal Re-
venue Service makes it more im-
portant than ever that each appro-
priate line of the return be proper-
ly completed, Mr. Tomlinson said.
Also, where practicable, pread-
dressed forms received by tax-
payers should be used.
Under the Automatic Data Pro-
cessing System the taxpayer's so-
cial -security number is used to
identify his account; therefore, it
is very important that the correct
social security number be used.
When preaddressed forms are used
and there has been a change of
address, a line should be drawn
through the old address and the
new address inserted immediately
above. When preaddressed forms
are not used, it is necessary that
the name and address be legible.

tance should bring with them to

Electric power plants in Florida
produced as much electricity dur-
ing the first six months of last year
as during the full year 1956 and
twice as much as during all of 1951
the Florida State Chamber of Com-
merce pointed out in its Weekly
Business Review released yester-
"Total output of all electric
plants in the state came to 12,636,-
751,000 kilowatt-hours through
June of last year, according to of-
ficial reports recently released.
This amounted to a 10 per cent
gain over the first half of 1962
and was well over the national in-
crease of six per cent.
"Manufacturers who produce
their own power accounted for
930,966,000, kilowatt-hours of the
total and other manufacturing
plants bought 2,541,507,000 kilo-
watt-hours. The total of these was
up four per cent during the six
months, the same as the national
increase for the period.
"Use sof electricity by commer-
cial establishments in Florida
moved up 11 per cent and in the
nation, seven per cent. Residential
use in Florida was also up 11 per
cent compared with eight per cent
"Fuel used in Florida for the
production of:. electric power
through June last year was made
up of 844,090 short tons of coal
(up 11 per cent); 9,223,341 barrels
of oil (up three per cent) and 46
billion cubic feet of gas (up 18 per
cent) compared with the like per-
iod in 1962."

Fresh Water Fishing
water fishermen are already begin-
ning to reap some benefits from
the Fiesh Wtter Fishing Improve-
ment Act of 1983 and may expect
more and better fishing as time
passes and fishing improvement
programs extend, according to A.
D. Aldrich, director, Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission.
The Fishing Iiiprovement Act of
1963 provides for an increase of
one dollar on each resident fishing
license. This dollar is set aside to
be used for improvement of Flor-
ida's iresh water fishing.
In reporting on the progress of
the first six months of the fishing
improvement program Aldrich said
the Commission has approved 23
fish management areas in 12 coun-
ties with 53,821 acres of water now
under intensive management to
produce maximum fishing. Another
47 areas are presently being con-
sidered and under various stages
of management. Ten public boat
ramps and access sites were com-
pleted during the past six months
and over 50 miles of boat trails
have been cut through inaccessible
grass and vegetation.
Established fish management
areas are as follows: Polk County,

Receive Social Security
More than 682,000 men, women
and children in Florida were re-
ceiving Social Security benefit pay-
ments at the end of 1963. These
payments amounted to about 46
million a month, according to John
V. Carey, District Manager for the
Social Security Administration in
Panama City. "This represents an
increase in the number of bene-
ficiaries of about six percent over
the same month last year," he
The Social Security program was
28 years old last August 14. In re-
viewing the growth of the program,

need to worry about a pilot light. You can heat just one
room at a time with portables, baseboard units, wall
heaters or ceiling heat. Or you can have a year-round
houseful of comfort with a heat pump ... warms in the
winter... cools in the summer. Look into electric heat-

FAT AND FEEDING
Some people appear able to
consume unlimited quantities of
food without becoming obese.
Other people must be careful
about their calories, to avoid
putting on exess weight.
Variations in food utilization
are said to be due to different
degrees of efficiency on the
part of the hormone and en-
zyme systems. .These systems
direct food from the general
pool toward its ultimate fate
where eventually it becomes
body protein, immediate fuel,
excreted waste, or fat.
Students of the subject be-
Xvve these differences in metab-
olic efficiency are genetically
determined. The tendency for
children to follow in the pat-
tern of their parents weight-
wise is borne out by recent
studies. A child has one chance
in ten of becoming obese if
both his parents are of normal
weight, and one chance in two
if one parent is obese. If both
parents are overweight, chances
are very good that he will be
Food intake in excess of phy-
siologic need is obviously and
logically a cause of overweight.
But the reason for excessive
appetite and the possibilities of
bringing appetite under control
are not so apparent.
Prevention against ov e r-
weight in a child begins with
the mother's cultivation of a
sound and proper attitude to-
ward feeding. In this field, the
physician can have a strong
influence in molding the attitude
of a'new mother toward food.
