To Be Named

At Jaycee Banquet Tomorrow
Bill Hamrick, Executive Vice
President of Gulf Life Insurance
Company of Jacksonville, will be
the guest speaker at the Jaycees'
annual. Distinguished Service
Award Banquet on Friday night at
Van Horn's Beach Restaurant, Rob-
ert E. Nedley, local Jaycee Presi-
dent, announced this week.
Mr. Hamrick is well known in
the insurance field and is one of
Jacksonville's most active civic lea-
ders. In 1963, Hamrick served the
Rotary Club as District Governor.
The feature of the banquet will
be the naming of Port St. Joe's
Outstanding Young Man of 1963.
For several weeks, a committee
composed of established commun-
ity leaders has been canvassing
churches, businesses, clubs and or-
ganizations to determine which
young man-21 through 35- has
contributed the most to the com-
munity during the year. Last year's
winner was Wade Barrier, Jr.
The local winner will be entered
in the Florida Jaycee contest,
which chooses the Five Outstand-
ing Young Men in the state. Those
winners will in turn be entered in
the national competition to deter-

In addition, the Cabinet re-
quested the trustees of the In-
ternal Improvement Fund to
make application for an addi-
tional 90 acres of adjoining land
on St. Joseph's Spit. Acting Out-
door Planning Director William
Kidd said it was doubtful that
the land could be purchased im-
mediately because of legal ques-
tions over the title, but it
should be tied up by the state
for future purchase.
The State Park Board is ex-
pected to spend $100,000 to de-
velop the new state park as soon
as roads can be cut into the area.
At a special meeting of the
County Commission and a local
committee pushing the park,
Representative Ben C. Williams
and Senator Luther Tucker were
questioned about securing pri-
mary road funds for construc-
tion of the Park Road from State
Road 30-A to the park site.
The County Board passed a
resolution and forwarded it to
the State Road Department re-
questing the primary funds for
the park road.
Word was yesterday that the
Road Department had looked
with favor on the request and
there is a good chance of secur-
ing these funds.

The Jaycees are generally recognized as the "proving
ground" for the leaders of tomorrow teaching young
men under 35 to assume projects and leadership and see them
through to completion. In Port St. Joe as throughout the
nation, Jaycees have generally ignored this "proving ground"
status and have taken the lead in building better communities.
Just look over their many accomplishments just this
past year alone in the public service advertisement in this
issue. Then, give your congratulations to a Jaycee when
you see him this week. He will appreciate it. And chances
are, it will make him more "bright eyed and bushy-tailed."
Taking A Long, Hard Look At Our
School System Makes Good Sense
We welcome the advent of a committee recently formed
to look over the pros and cons of Gulf County's school
needs. We are also especially elated that the committee is
composed of citizens your neighbors tax payers and
non tax payers and even those who may stand to pay
taxes on property now tax-free if their plans are seen thru
A need is evident to upgrade our school system through-
out the county. No area is free of need. And a desire is a-
building to do something about the situation.
Admittedly our school system isn't the worst in the state.
but neither is it the best. The best is to be desired and
it is attainable.
This committee will compile data of present facts con-
cerning the school system in Gulf County. They will take
a look at the present bonded indebtedness, how much is
owed, how much the county is capable of owing and repaying
at present financing. They will look at what is available in
the way of quality education and what it will cost; what
subjects are desired that can be offered.
Some talk has been forthcoming of consolidation of high
schools in the county. A long look will be taken at this as-
pect its advantages and its disadvantages.
These things are needed right now.
The school system is going to be forced to do some ex-
panding. It would seem foolish to do the expanding until a
thorough study is made of the situation and see what would
be best for the future of our children. No selfishness can
be tolerated in this long hard look.
This committee intends to keep the public fully informed
on its findings and of its recommendations. The committee
will try to urge you, Mr. Citizen, to join in the pull for the
better means of education in our county.
Before any money is spent for temporary alleviation of
growing pains, a long, searching look should be taken at the
long-range needs and prospects foi growth.
The committee intends to do this. Let's give them our
aid and support.

Port St. Joe Jaycees Join
In National Celebration
This weke, members of the Port St. Joe
Junior Chamber of Commerce, with 200,000
other young men in the United States, celebrate
the opening day of "Jaycee Week".
The group has progressed far since 1935
when Henry Giessenbier, Jr., organized mem-
bers of a St. Louis dancing club into the Young
Men's Progressive Civil Association. The fa-
miliar abbreviation, "J. C." emerged when the
title was shortened to Junior Citizens.
In 1918, the Junior Citizens became affiliat-
ed, at the invitation of the St. Louis Chamber
of Commerce, as the Junior Chamber of Com-
merce. Although the "St. Louis Plan" enjoyed
initial success in other cities, today's Jaycees
are similar to the Chamber of Commerce only
in the aim of civic betterment.
Actual aim of the Jaycees is to develop
communities and train leaders through active
participation in community projects. The Jay-
cee Creed says that "We Believe:
That faith in God gives meaning and pur-
pose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends
the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by
free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather
than of men;
That earth's great treasure lies in human
And that service to humanity is the best
work of life.

The American Legion Home in

The Home was beautifully decor-

yellow roses and holding burning

stations with a soft radiant glow.

day. Binger pointed out that 70 per- ca
cent of the students of today will cl
never graduate from college and
must depend on high school curric-
ulum for their total education.
More complex living of the day
requires more education for readi-
ness to meet the responsibilities.
Binger said facilities must be pro-
vided to let students "discover"
not "verify" what is printed :in text-
books. The practical working me-
thod of teaching far surpasses me-
mory teaching from a textbook.
Binger said that Gulf County's
science program was very good in
relation to the available facilities,
but stressed a need for more lab-
oratory space and facilities, equip-
ment, etc., for improvement in
Binger pointed out that Ameri-
cans spend more on cosmetics, to-
bacco and alcoholic beverages than
they do on education.
Dexter Majors spoke on Gulf
County's mathematics program.
The speaker said that is shock-

the people are .literate enough in
mathematics to be able to com-
Majors said that he was not say-
ing that people didn't know how
to add, subtract, divide, etc., but
that they did not know "WHEN"
to add, subtract, divide, etc.
"Mathematics are becoming es-
sential in our work-a-day world",
said Majors. "The student with a
good solid, basic high school math-
ematics background is in demand
in the work force of today. The
young man or lady who has grad-
uated from college can get a job
sight unseen in any number of
major industries today. They are in
Majors told of new textbooks
that the state is in the process of
distributing new mathematics text
books to every school in the state.
The new books will broaden a stu-
dent's concept of mathematics and
better prepare him to enter what is
fast becoming a mathematical and
scientific world. The new books
are due to be in every school in the
state within three years.
Dr. Cramer pointed a critical eye
at the school plant, especially in
the vicinity of the science, home
ec, biology and other departments.
On the credit side, Dr. Cramer
stated that the local high school is
well kept and well maintained.
He pointed out that small enroll-
ment limits opportunity of students
and spoke favorably for consolida-
tion of county schools to make one
school large enough to give all
high school students the opportun-
ity of a more diversified curricu-

forget about it until about the mid-
dle of March.
This careless treatment is in-
tended to hibernate the plant dur-
ing the frosty days while the shriv-
eling top feeds the sleeping roots.
Don't water the dormant plant.
But, so it won't dry out too
much, lay the potter plant on its
side in a cool dry place. Under the
back porch is an ideal place. If
you live on a concrete slab, try
storing the sleeping plant in that
shady corner of the carport.
When spring comes ,tenderly
awake the plant by sluoghing off
the dead top and by placing the
roots in a new bed of rich soil. You
can grow the new plant in last sea-
son's pot, but the poinsettia will
be happier if you set it in the soil
where it can flex its roots better
than in the confines of a pot.
If you did not get a gift of poin-
settias for Christmas, it is easy to
establish plantings of the holiday
ornamental by purchasing potted
stock from a local nurseryman.
However, some green thumb op-
erators feel that they have better
luck if they sneak hardwood cut-
tings from a neighbor's yard fol-
lowing the flowering season.
You can root hardwood poinset-
tia stalks by punching holes in the
desired location, inserting three
quarters of each of the woody cut-
tings into the soil and pressing the
soil firmly around the base. Be
.sure to keep the soil moist. Mulch-
ing around the cuttings will help
you maintain moisture, soil tem-
perature and weed-free conditions
for rooting and growth.
If you prefer to propagate by
softwood cuttings, put off the pro-
ject until around June. These ten-
der shoots root well under con-
stant mist or in any propagating
unit. Remember, it's important to
keep the humidity high around the
cuttings during the rooting process.
There are a number of poinset-
tias that will grow well out of
doors. If you desire red-bracted
varieties, propagate such plants as
fireball, Indianapolis Red, Albert
Ecke, oak leaf or Mrs. Paul Ecke.
For color combination mingle the
red planting with Ecke white or a
Poinsettias will grow on a wide
range of soils, including sand,
muck, marl, rocky soil and clay. In
spite of the wide adaptability, the
plants will present you a better
show of color if you take proper
care of them.
Fertilizer application is import-
ant. Apply about 1% pounds of a
good garden fertilizer per 100
square feet of plant space in early
spring, again in June and perhaps
in mid-summer if there are heavy
Pruning is the secret of a canopy
of color next Christmas.
As each sprout reaches 12 inches
lang, pinch it back to six inches.
Continue this cruel treatment to
all sprouts until the middle of
September. Then stop to give the
bracts of color petals.
Poinsettias show their color ac-
cordin gto day length and temper-
ature. A plant near a lighted win-
dow or a street light often refuses
to color up like a neighboring
Plant in a nearby darker corner.
The best flower development is
when the night temperatures range
from 60 to 62 degrees.

Florida Beginning Program of Foster
Home Care For Aged Citizens
Florida is beginning a program
of foster home care for the aged.
A number of indigent aged patients
in the state hospitals who are well
enough to be released are being
considered for this demonstration
program. Selected will be those
who do not need hospitalization but
do need a protected, family-type
Foster homes for the dependent
aged, a demonstration program
limited to 300 cases, was establish-
ed by the 1963 legislature. The
new law authorizes the welfare de-
partment to give these 300 recip-
ients a monthly check of up to
$135, which would pay for room,
meals, clothing, personal inciden-
tals, and services. The usual max-
imum welfare check is $70.00. The
increased grants make it possible
for these 300 people to pay their
own way in their foster homes.
Applications from prospective
foster families will be studied and
selected by the local welfare de-
partment office. Approval of a fos-
ter home does not automatically
mean that the home will be used
by the department. Great care will
be made to place each old person
in the home that fits him best. At-
mosphere, family customs level-of
living, physical suitability of the
premises, and the ability of the
family to make a stranger feel at
home are some of the points to be
considered in matching up the old
person with the foster home.
Welfare workers will work close-
ly with foster home owners and

the old person will get not only his
room, meals, and sheltered living,
but also some personal service and
supervision, so he can continue to
live in the community of his choice
and to lead as active and useful a
life as his condition permits.
Some Factors In Foster
1. The room should be comfort-

Purina cat Care Center
The Expectant Cat
Motherhood comes naturally to
cats. You needn't do much to help
them, but a few precautions make
an expectant cat's job easier.
About a week before kittens
are due, Mama cat is likely to
search for a suitable place to
have her kittens. To simplify her
search, take a box, line it with
a clean old towel, and place it in
a warm, dark, quiet corner of the
Next, bring the cat to the box.
Place her in it and pet her re-
assuringly. She may welcome
this "maternity ward," but
don't be surprised if she decides
that another spot is more to her
liking. Cats can be extremely in-
dependent about these matters.
The Purina Cat Care Center
recommends leaving a cat alone
for a few hours after she has
given birth. Her box may be a
trifle soiled but don't let this
bother you, this is normal.
After about three days, how-
ever, your efforts to aid in house-
cleaning will be welcomed by the
new mother and she'll do her
part by washing the kittens and
disposing of any mess they make.
New kittens should remain in
semi-darkness for about 2 weeks
because light can hurt their eyes.
For the first week or two, bring
your pet's food to the box. Mother
cat is busy with her offspring,
and your attention will save her
trouble and enable her to spend
more time bringing up her chil,

Of Home Loans
Veterans who have not taken ad-
vantage of their GI home loan
benefits are reminded that they
could lose this opportunity to pur-
chase a home under the GI Bill.
The original purpose of the bill
was to provide returning veterans
the opportunity to purchase a home
at low interest rates with no down
payment. Whereas conventional
loans usually require as much as
one fourth down payment, veter-
ans may, under the GI Home Loan
program, obtain a loan through the
VA without this down payment.
In reminding veterans of the fact
that they could lose out on this op-
portunity, J. J. Hill, Veterans Ser-
vice Officer for Gulf County states
that the VA has a set formula for
cut-off dates to veterans. He stat-
ed that in recent weeks a number
of veterans had either called or
come by the office inquiring about
obtaining a loan through the VA
and have learned their deadline
date had already passed.
Veterans who have not used their
home loan priviledge and who an-
ticipate in doing so, are urged to
contact the Veteran's Service Of-
ficer at 229-3526 and discuss this
matter. The Service Office is open
on Monday, Wednesday and Fri-
days and is located in the Ameri-
can Legion Home on Wolliams Ave-
