seek to persuade more adults to

DA'R: MAN-AT WORK
Business hours extend well into the evening for many
a man who has to bring home a briefcase filled with paper work.
Today's breadwinner often has records and reports to
write, which require time and concentration. A desk at home
provides a quiet spot where he can work without interruption
of telepl)hones and appointments.
Much of a man's work at the office is done under artifi-
cial light. At home he again is using a desk lamp. The com-
bination of extended visual concentration plus artificial light
can cause eye strain, say researchers for the Murine Company.
Proper desk light is important to prevent extra tension
on the eyes. Lighting should be over the shoulder and high
enough to prevent glare on the page-at least fifteen inches
above the desk counter and the same distance away from
books and papers.
A 75-watt bulb is the minimum recommended for adequate
lighting. Even better is a 100, or 150-watt frosted bulb with
a drum-type shade which furnishes direct light downward on
thie page and diffused lighting upward.
A brief coffee "break" or a few minutes recess to chat
with members of the family will help relieve eye fatigue and
tension. Focusing the eyes on distant objects for a few seconds
also helps ease strain. And a few drops of eye lotion from
a handy plastic squeeze bottle kept on the desk will soothe
and relieve eyes irritated by over exposure to fine print and
A comni' iion of good lighting and reasonable yev care will
help ease the burden of work at home for the busy executive.

Speaks to Kiwanis
WJHG-TV manager Jim Tighe
spoke to the Port St. Joe Kiwanis
Club Tuesday noon, telling them
of some of the history of the Pan-
ama City television station.
WJHG went on the air ten years
ago, and operated strictly from
films until three years ago. At this
time, the station, having been pur-
chased by Gray Television of Al-
bany, Georgia, went to live net-
work shows over a microwave sys-
tem constructed between Panama
City and Albany, Ga.
Currently the station has doubl-
ed its power rating to 316,000
watts. This change took place three
weeks ago and the station is cur-
rently working the "bugs" out of
the new transmitter installed for
the power increase.
Tighe said the station is steadily
improving its transmission and re-
liability and plans to have good,
steady television transmission in a
very short time.
Guests of the club at the meet-
ing were Key-ettes Barbara Martin
and Carol Alligood; Key Clubbers
Rodney Herrilng and Maurice Ful-
ler, all of Port St. Joe High School
and K. W. Baumgart of Panama

LET'S GET THE FACTS
CORRECT ON THE
In the 1961 Session of the Leg-
islature, which was the last ses-
sion I served, I introduced
House Bill No. 3139 to create a
special water and sewer district
for Highland View, and named
the five commissioners of the
district in the bill. THIS BILL_
BECAME A LAW AND PROVID-
ED, AMONG OTHER THINGS,
THAT THE DISTRICT WAS AU-
THORIZED TO RECEIVE LOANS
OR GRANTS FROM THE FED-
ERAL GOVERNMENT FOR THE
CONSTRUCTION OF A WATER
AND SEWER SYSTEM. Florida
Engineering Associates was en-
gaged by the district to prepare
an engineering report on the
feasibility which would include
rates to be charged the public
in order to repay a loan on the
system. An application for loan
was made to the Federal Home
and Housing Agency to construct
a water and sewer system. This
agency considered that a sewer
system was not feasible since it
would require a very high sewer
charge for the citizens of High-
land View to repay the loan.
This application for loan was in
process when Gulf County, along
with many other counties in the
state, became entitled to a grant
of money from the federal gov-
ernment under the Accelerated
Public Works Program solely be-
cause of the unemployment ra-
tio in Gulf County as compared
with other counties in the coun-
Many cities and districts re-
ceived grants under the Acceler-
ated Public Works Program in-
cluding Blountstown, Apalachi-
cola, and Bonifay. The Highland
View Water and Sewer District
was entitled to this grant for a
part of the construction costs
for its water system; and it cer-
tainly should not have required
and would not have required a
cocktail party for a Congressman
or a telephone call to get this
I have handled all legal work
and made a trip to Atlanta to
assist in this program without
expense to the Highland View
In addition, I introduced House
Bill No. 1597 which appropriated
money for the purchase of fire
truck and other fire equipment
in Highland View, which became
a law. A provision has been
made for a fire department near
the proposed water treatment
plant in Highland View.

City Conducting Beautifying Prograin
We think it should be brought to the attention of the
citizens of Port St. Joe that the City is currently working
diligently to beautify our city.
.Last week The Star ran a picture on the front page of
work underway in Forrest Park to make it beauty spot in
the center of our city. But, the work is progressing so that
the picture was obsolete before we could get it developed,
an engraving made, and the picture printed. We made the
picture on a Monday morning, printed it on Wednesday,
and already you could hardly recognize the same spot. The
fountain had been virtually finished, paths laid out, a bridge
.built across the proposed "rill" and flowers and shrubs
planted in the vicinity.
The park is also being beautified in other sections, and
eventually will be one strip of beauty all the way from Fifth
to Sixteenth Streets.
In addition to work on the park, the City this week is
inaugurating a clean-up program throughout the City.
Work will begin this week end in North Port St. Joe
Surging all residents to clean up around their homes, haul the
refuse to the side of the street, and the City will haul off the
- debris, free of charge. The City will cover the entire com-
i.munity in this program, taking one area at a time and in
.the end will give the entire City a general "scrubbing" up
operation that will make our City more pleasing to the eye
both to residents and visitors.
"Civil Rights" Bill Needs Your Attention
The Senate is now the recipient of the so-called "Civil
'Rights" Bill. But on second thought, you might rightfully
label the bill "Civil Rights" because it removes so many of
.them from all races.
It seems hard to conceive that right thinking people
would support a bill that would create a virtual "police state"
on sociability. And on the right of business owners to sell
to whom they please. Should this bill pass, another point of
what Americans have fought for will fade in the sunset.
We are not alarmed over the thought of Negroes getting
jobs, staying in hotels, eating in restaurants or even going to
schools. We are alarmed at the thought of being forced to,
do that which we think should be by choice.
But in the past we have seen many points of our strength
that has attracted many good citizens to our shores-includ-
ing Negroes, Jews, Irishmen, Latin Americans and many
others. They have, by and large, picked themselves up the
bootstraps as have generations of native Americans, to make
their place in the sun by their own initiative.
This is as it should be.
If you, as a citizen of this Nation, white or colored, think
that the system of free enterprise and freedom of choice
should be continued, we urge you to let your wishes be
known to your delegation in Washington. Your voice will
be heeded if you make it heard.
in line witn repeatect requests
by the nation's independent
businessmen, Congress did re-
duce foreign aid, although there
is still a long way to go to whit-
tle down the $3 billion voted.

Con r,:. : -
man H. R. C.W. Harder
Gross, Iowa, reveals that for-
eign aid funds have been used
to help African Kenya officials
to buy extra wives. A man
there can have as many wives
as he can pay for, on a cash
in advance basis. Of course, in
America, a man taking a wife
to himself often gets by with a
small d6wn payment, but then
he keeps paying on the install-
ment plan. So there is this
difference in the two systems.
This is not to suggest that
polygamy should be legalized
in America. It is not only
against public morals, but also
must be considered havoc that
would be wreaked with the in-
come taxation if men could
take deductions for ten wives
or so, plus resulting progeny.
Yet, there seems to be a les-
son to be learned here, and
maybe certain aspects of for-
eign aid could be applied to
American life. It is significant
,that although the long range
benefits of the foreign Peace
Corps have still to be assayed,
there is consideration being
given to setting up a domestic

'fus, it this premise is sound,
what is wrong with a plan for
a domestic foreign aid pro-
gram. In pointing out that for-
eign aid funds are used to buy
extra wives for Kenya men, a
challenging new vista opens for
a domestic foreign aid program.
There are many men in
America who practice polyg-
amy, but on the installment
plan, via the divorce courts.
This is one of the basic differ-
ences between the American
system and the Kenya system
where a man pays cash for a
wife and is through with pay-
ments. In America, those who
practice polygamy on the in-
stallment plan pay alimony.
Thus, the proposed domestic
foreign aid program could pick
up all alimony payments.
This does not seem to be at
all far-fetched. If the taxpay-
er's money can be used for
wife purchase, so that African
bucks can ease their way
through this vale of tears sur-
rounded by a galaxy of women
paid for in advance, why can-
not the same benefits be ex-
tended to the American male
who goes through life with a
succession of wives on the in-
While it may be quite all right
to tax people out of the neces-
sities and also through taxes
soak up profits needed by small
business to expand to support
foreign aid, this discrimination
against American manhood is
all wrong. If ta.x money can be
used for the cash marital proj-
ects of African manhood, it can
surely be used for installment
plan marital projects by Amer-
ican manhood. Thus, a domes-
tic foreign aid program should
be strongly considered. *

Proof Offered That Adequate Court House
Can Be Built In Gulf for Less Than $400,000
Adequate for Gulf
Last week the editor of the Gulf
County Breeze took issue with our
editorial of three weeks ago con-
cerning the feasibility of moving
the Court House to Port St. Joe.
We respect the editor's wishes
that the Court House remain in
But, we feel even more strongly
that the Court House should be
moved to Port St. Joe where it
will better serve the majority of
the people of Gulf County.
We don't deny that the County
officers have furnishe dsome of the
Court House facilities in Port St.
Joe during the past years, but we
also recognize that the tax payers
have paid for this "service" which
could be placed here in body and
do away with this extra charge.
The editor of The Breeze attack-
ed many portions of our editorial,
and normally we wouldn't bother
to answer the charges. But the
issues in this Court House moving
project are too important to be
cast about in untruths and half
truths. We have to stand up and
defend our statements as truth.
In this important issue, in which
we are attempting to persuade you
to vote to move the Court House on
May 5, we cannot afford to feed
you false impressions and thereby
be the greatest help in defeating
our own purpose.
In first .defending our state-
ments concerning Holmes and
Jackson County Courthouses, let
us say that these figures came
from newspapers published in
the counties where the new struc-
tures are located, and if the fig-
ures were too low, we are sure
the contractors would like to
know about it, and collect their
extra money. The figures quoted
were contract prices, advertised
and published publicly.
To defend our statements that
the Holmes County courthouse

knows no season. But, spring is a
good time to check lawns for wrin-
kle-like erosions caused by winter's
When checking don't forget the
deep ruts made by unwanted tra-
vel trailer visitors, or, the wheel
marks made by the truck that re-
possessed the piano.
Top soil will go a long way in
covering up these and other night-
marish experiences and will pre-
vent you from developing old-age
wrinkles before your time. Be sure
to buy top soil that is free of roots
and other debris. Also, don't add
soil that is full of nutgrass seeds
or other trouble-makers.
Will it hurt to use soil to cover
the lawn grass in the truck margs?
The answer is: No.
Usually, lawn grass will push up
through an inch or so of top soil.
But in the more damaged areas,
you may need to add sod or sprig
in grass runners to cover up un-
sightly bald spots.
If uninvited travel trailers con-
tinue to be a menace to your lawn,
now is a good time to block off the
handy parking place with shrubs.
Usually there is a large-size shrub
or two in the back yard that can
be moved to discourage on-grass
parking. Azaleas are good exam-
ples. You can move tham as soon
as they shed their blooms.
First, dig large size transplant-
ing holes at the proper spot where
the trailers may trespass. Then,
scatter well rotted organic mater-
ial in the bottom of the holes.
In transplanting, be sure to move
as many roots as possible along with
a generous ball of earth. In fach,
try to make the ball of earth and
roots match the hole at the new
The secret of moving large
shrubs is water-plenty of it. Fol-
lowing transplanting, allow water
from a hose to ooze on the plant

for the next month or so be sure
that the shrubs get special water-

Gulf County, now and in the fore-

again, evidence that our state-
ment was not made on supposi-
tions drawn out of the thin air.
Pictured above is the archi-
tect's drawing of the Holmes
Court House, made by the archi-
tect who designed the building.
The building contains 24,000
square feet. Gul f County's
Court House, including the jail
has 13,616 square feet measuring
from outside dimensions. Again
these figures were taken from
architect's files, not our own

The planting season is about any
time the notion strikes you-pro-
vided the vines are small, thrifty,
container-grown plants. Now is a
good time to try your luck. Decid-
uous vines-wisteria, trumpet-vine
and others-do best when planted
in the cooler season.
In planting either container
grown or "dalled and burlapped"
plants, dig a hole which is slightly
larger than the ball of earth about
the roots. If the plant is in a con-
tainer, carefully remove the plant
withont distrubing the ball of earth
about the roots and settle it in the
hole at the same depth it was in

so there will be no misunderstand-
ing) twice as large as the Gulf
County Court House.
It cost less than $400,000.00.
Mr. Bandjough also pointed-out
that a portion of this building is
being paid for by Federal aid. If
Mr. Bandjough had read his mail
about six months ago, he would
have seen that Gulf County is also
eligible for this type aid but
only for new construction.
Mr. Bandjough questioned our
judgment as to whether the
Holmes building would be ade-
quate for Gulf County, even tho
it is nearly (note) twice as large
as Gulf's. Bandjough then places
himself in our vacated chair of ex-
pert and declared that the present

Supposing that Mr. Bandjough is
the expert in such matters we
would then venture an amateur

that even though the Holmes build-
ing doesn't contain a jail, the dif-
ference in cost of a building of an
"adequate" 13,616 square feet and
a building of 24,000 should more
than pay for the cost of a jail, don't
you think? And that area now oc-
cupied by Gulf County's jail would
be just that much room for growth
Be this as it may be. We still
feel and we still continue to
urge you to support the opin-
ion that the Gulf County Court
House is needed where it will
serve the needs of the people
better here in Port St. Joe.
Next week we will attempt to
shed a little light on the cost to
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Blow, to bring
about such a movement. Believe
me, it is to your advantage. Tax-
payers don't like to pay needless
taxes, so it should stand to rea-
son to those not now paying tax-
es that were there to be a bur-
den borne by moving the Court
House, the tax paying public (or
we should say, the greatest ma-
jority) would not be working so
diligently for its re-location.

February 25, 1964
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida
met this date in regular session
with the following members pre-
sent: James G. McDaniel, Chair-
man, Walter Graham, S. C. Player,
Leo Kennedy and A. J. Strick-
land. The Clerk, Sheriff, Attorney,
Road Superintendent, Civil De-
fense Director and the Gulf County
Health Officer were also present.
Vice-Chairman Graham conducted
The meeting- came to order at
6:30 P.M. The Clerk opened the
meeting with prayer.
Mr. Jesse V. Stone, Chairman of
the St. Joseph's Park Committee,
appeared before the Board and
gave an oral report on the progress
being made by the State Road De-
partment on the access road pro-
ject. He said the survey informa-
tion was scheduled to reach this
meeting tonight, but for some un-
known delay, this information will
be a week late. He said it was very
important to begin securing the
rights of way at the earliest possi-
ble moment because the access
road to the park site will deter-
mine whether or not the Florida
State University will select the
Park site for its new Oceanograp-
hic institute. He urged the County
to secure the necessary right of
way as soon as possible in order
that work can commence at an
early date which would be a point
in favor of the Institute coming to
Gulf County. Mr. Stone then infor-
med the Boaid that the State Ca-
binet has not released funds to the
park Board but that the Attorney
General promised him that he is
writing an opinion to the Cabinet,
advising that the funds can be re-
leased and members of the Cabin-
et said the funds will be released
at its next meeting.
The Board was informed by let-
ter from the Trustees of the Inter-
nal Improvement Fund of the State
Fund of the State of Florida that
the SW% of NE%, of Section 31,
Township six South, Range 11 West
containing 40.20 acres can be pur-
chased by the County Commission-
ers for the sum of $2.50 per acre;
that the State of Florida has first
priority to purchase this land from
the United States of America, how-
ever, the State has agreed to with-
draw its application in favor of
Gulf County, providing the County
wants said land. After consider-
ation, there was a motion by Comn.
missioner McDaniel, seconded by
Commissioner Strickland and un-
animously carried that the County
exercise its option and make appli,
cation to purchase said lands.

discussed the Gulf County Health
Departments budget for the 1964-
65year. He said that it now ap-
pears that the County. will have to

next year to continue the present
operation and if the employees re-
ceived the increase due them un-
der the Merit system, an addition-
al $3,100.00 will be necessary. He
said these increases do not include
some necessary repairs to each

quested to give this matter serious
