TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1964 NUMBER 18
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
It appears that there is thinking
among some of the County Com-
missioners to call the election for
deciding whether or not to move
the county seat of Gulf County for
the regular May primary.
We -think this would be a mis-
take especially for the people
of Gulf County.
Well, let's look at what will be
on the May ballot already. There
will be a raft of people hunting an
almost automatic six-year governor
term, state and rational senators,
county commissioners, s c h oo o1
board members, all four-year coun-!
ty officers and a multitude of state
To put it mildly, the ballot will
And with crowding will come
We predict that the ballot will
already be as big as this newspaper
sheet. It was almost as big at the
last four year election.
We don't think that anything
as important as deciding whether
or not to move the county seat
should be mixed up in all this
Neither do we think that any-
thing as important as the officers
to be chosen should be linked
with the strictly home county
Both elections are important
enough at least in our way of
thinking to demand a private
ballot without any interference
from other questions.
And then, too, there is the pos-
sibility that the heat of passion
over deciding on the fate of the
county seat could be linked to some
candidates from either end of the
county and cause the defeat-or
cause not to be elected-fine pub-
lic servants of our county.
Our minds will be clearer if we
take the subjects one at a time
and decide without any side issues
cropping up to distort reasoning.
As this newspaper reported last
week, the County Registrar has
sent out cards for a re-registration
of voters in-the county.
This is a state law, that the voter
lists be purged every two years.
If you do not sign your card
and send it back to the Regis-
trar, you will not be able to vote
The Registrar has placed an ad-
vertisement in The Star this week
advising you of this matter and
advising those not registered to
vote, where they may register in

Services Administration has been
instructed to proceed with all
work necessary to carry out the
conveyance of the St. Joseph Pe-

This transaction includes the
whole of the 671 acres slated for
park development. Some 75 acres
were conveyed to the state a lit-
tle over a month ago, but this
larger tract of property had to
go through Government channels
before it could be released.
An inspection of the property
has been scheduled for this week
by Government people, after
which a report will be made and
preparation of the deed will pro-
ceed. The deed will be completed
upon payment of 50% of the ask-

asking price was not reported in
According to the Congressman,
all preliminary work should be
completed by the end of this
Construction on the park is
expected to begin very soon after
completion of the land transfer.

Firemen Seeking Girls
For "Miss Flame" Contest
Port St. Joe Volunteer Firemen
will hold a "Miss Flame" contest
Saturday night, January 25 at the
Centennial Building to secure an
entrant to the state contest later
next May in Clearwater.
The current F 1 o r ida "Miss
Flame" is Miss Becky Childers of
Port St. Joe, elected last year at
the firemen's convention held in
The contest will be held in con-
junction with the District State
Firemen's meeting which is being
held in Port St. Joe this year, with
the local volunteers as hosts.
Only high school girls may com-
pete in the contest. Those interest-
ed in representing Port St. Joe in
the state meeting should contact
Wayne Saunders, principal of the
Port St. Joe High School.
The State Outdoor Recreation
Planning Committee gave its
staff the go-ahead Tuesday to
acquire land on St. Joseph Pe-
ninsula for a new state park at
a cost of $83,875.
The price was put on the land
in Gulf County by federal Gen-
eral Services Administration ap-
praisers, who set the price for
the parcel at $167,750. The state
gets the land for half price.
Acting Director William Kidd
said the cost was well within the
$100,000 made available from state
funds for the project and he urg-
Petition Is Adequate
To Call Election
At a public hearing Monday of
this week, the petition requesting
that an election be held to decide
whether or not to move the county
seat, was informally recognized as
being adequate to require the elec-
tion to be called.
The hearing Monday was called
for the purpose of hearing objec-
tions to names on the petition or
from those who had had their
names stricken from the list.
Some 200 names had been strick-
en from the list due to technicali-
ties. The most common criteria for
rejecting names on the petition
was due to a difference of names
appearing on the tax rolls and the
voter list. The question of a name
on either list would cause disquali-
fication, since a person had to be
a voting tax-payer to sign the peti-
tion. If for instance, a person sign-
ed his full name to his tax roll and
his initials to his voting registra-
tion, the names were removed be-
cause those examining the records
weren't sure the two names were
one and the same person.
The Board will now be faced
with rejecting the petition or call-
ing the election at their meeting
of Tuesday, January 28, which is a
night meeting beginning at 7:30
p.m., Port St. Joe time.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1964
Retiring County Superintendent
Thomas A. Owens spoke to the Ki-
wanis Club Tuesday, warning the
club members, as citizens, that
they must begin to take a long,
hard look at the school system of
Gulf County and its future or
lack of future.
Owens pointed out that it is go-
ing to be almost impossible to edu-
cate our children in this space age
with Gulf's "horse and buggy day
assessments" on property values.
Owens flatly stated that re-eval
nation of real and personal pro-
perty in Gulf County is needed.
The speaker pointed out that it
is ridiculous to name a School
Board of five members and then
limit them to just enough money
to provide necessary functions of
the system. "They are so limited
with funds, that their work is
mostly a local handling of a state
program, since money is provided
to just barely carry out the bare
necessities as required by the
State Department of Education to
stay on the accreditation list.
Owens said that the complete
school system needs revamping
from its elected official boards on
up. He declared that it was no
longer necessary to have a Board
of Trustees, since the School Board
must necessarily go over and ap-
prove their actions again. The
trustees were formed back when
travel was hard and quick deci-
sions could be made by a local
trustee and later ratified by the
Board when they could be contact-
ed. "This situation no longer
exists", said Owens.
Owens declared that consolida-
tion is the answer to quality school
services, but the big question is
where to put the consolidated
school? Even this obvious solution
creates mountain-size problems.
Owens said the county schools
need things today and have no
money with which to buy them.
The County is receiving all the
state money it can under state law
and must meet these with local
funds. He said the Port St. Joe
High School had been warned by
the Southern Accreditation people
that they face loss of accreditation
unless something is done about
lunch room, dressing and library
facilities along with needs in other
departments. The main need is in
the homemaking and science teach-
ing facilities in all of the Gulf
County high schools.
Guests of the club were Rex Buz-
zett, All Cathey, Mary Carolyn
Lyons and Karen Sterman of the
Port St. Joe High School and
James Finney of Kokomo, Ind.
Approximately 28,000 disabled
veterans and dependents of de-
ceased veterans in Florida who re-
ceive monthly pension payments
were reminded today to report
their annual income promptly to
the Veterans Administration to
avoid having their payments stop-
J. J. Hill, Gulf County Service
Officer, said that the VA has
mailed to all pension recipients a
punched card upon which the in-
come report must be made. Pen-
sions cease under the law if the
income of a pension recipient rises
above an established amount.
Dependent parents who receive
dependency and indemnity compen-
sation also receive income ques-
tionnaires and their payments are
similarly regulated by the amount
of their income, Hill added.
Veterans receiving compensation
for service connected disabilities
are not required to report income.
Persons in receipt of pensions
from the VA and who have not
filed the questionnaire cards to
date are urged to take care of this
matter at once. There are only 14
days remaining to have these cards

According to Chief of Police H.
W. Griffin, Leonard Belin was driv-

an automobile and a second auto
driven by Thomas Jefferson Webb
of Oak Grove.
Belin made a left turn into Al-

was struck by the Webb car at-
tempting to pass both Belin and
the car following him.
No injuries were reported.
Chief of Police Griffin and Pa-

GARDEN CLUB TO MAKE
PLANS FOR YEAR'S PROJECTS
Mrs. David Jones, president of
the Port St. Joe Garden Club, will
have a called general meeting at

ing Thursday at 3:00 p.m.

Expressway drivers should an-
ticipate their turnoff. If you
pass your interchange, con-
tinue to the next one. It is ex-
tremely dangerous to back up
even a few feet on an express-
way because you missed your
turnoff ramp. 3-5
stocks of gold held within that
nation. In fact, 'in order to
discourage the practice of pay-
ing as much as 50% premium
for gold, the Indian govern-
ment has by edict made it il-
legal for Indian jewelers to
use gold purer than 14 karat.
Experts estimate that the
more affluent Indians hold
about $7 billion in gold, or al-
most half as much as is pres-
ently held by the United States
Actually, this gold situation
has put the United States
squarely behind the eight ball
in all negotiations abroad.
For example, in negotiating
for tariff treaties, the U.S. is
at a disadvantage. The whole
world knows the U.S. needs to
sell more abroad to recapture
those dollars without giving up
more gold. But unless the U.S.
agrees to lower tariffs on many
import items, Europe can erect
tariff barriers so high that it
is impossible for the U.S. to
trade anything overseas to re-
capture these loose dollars.
Of course, it is quite unlikely
that these foreign dollar hold-
ers would ever press their de-
mands for payment to the point
where the U.S. would be bank-
rupt, because free world cur-
rencies would suffer. But it is
not beyond the realm of possi-
bility that the U.S. government
may be forced to borrow heav-
ily overseas to avoid losing all
gold reserves, on Interest rates
and terms set down by the
foreigners. And this would per-
haps be the greatest irony of
all time when the American
people would have to pay
heavy foreign interest on dol-
lars that were given away in
the first place.

In comparable student body size,
Port St. Joe was the smallest school
in the old Northwest Florida Con-
ference. Only once did the Sharks
win the championship and finish-
ed in the lower percentages more
often than not, because of the size
of other schools in the conference.
In comparing sizes, Port St. Joe
High School has 149 boys in the
three senior high grades; Milton
has 375 (over twice that of Port St.
Joe); DeFuniak Springs, 253; Mar-
ianna, 252; Quincy, 162; Blounts-
town, 119 and Chipley, 161.
Coach Brown said that other
schools are expected to ask for ad-
.mission to the new conference,
which is as yet unnamed.
Brown said that teams in the
new conference will be more even-
ly -matched and conference mem-
bers will strive to keep this situa-
tion in allowing new members.
Of the two games dropped,
both Brown and Saunders felt that
suitable replacements would be
available for next year.

A plan for providing insurance
for Senior Citizens of Florida was
presented to the Rotary Club last
Thursday from the office of J. Ed-
win Larson, State Insurance Com-
missioner. Speaking for Mr. Larson
was Remus 0. Cook, a deputy com-
missioner of the state insurance
Cook stated that the program
was instituted on a cooperation ba-
sis with all insurance companies
operating in Florida, when a sur-
vey showed that by 1970 there
would be 20 million persons in
Florida age 65 or over. There has
been a 133% increase in this age
group from 1950 to 1960.
The need for this program was
indicated when it was found that
of 400 companies writing hospital
insurance in Florida, only 20-25 of-
fered insurance to those 65 or over.
Now, through the State Commis-
sioner's office, hospital insurance
can be purchased for any age
group. One man 121 years old was
written up last year.
During certain "open enroll-
ment" periods, even those with
existing illnesses can be written.
Such an open enrollment is com-
ing up soon and it will be publi-
cized and advertised. All of this
insurance written for elderly peo-
ple is non-cancelable.
Guests of the club were Roy
Massey of Ybor City, Roy Dowling
of Panama City.

Straughn said fiscal year collec-

crease of 17.25 per cent, or $15,-
"This percentage of increase is
only slightly below our estimate
of what the increase would have

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Highway Patrol this week gave a
list of new traffic laws which be-
came effective in the sunshine
state on January 1.
The new laws, most passed by
any legislative session in recent
years, effect every motorist and
in some instances, bicycle riders.
When the public in general has
been notified of the new laws thru
FHP traffic safety education ser-
geants, law enforcement agencies
