Oil Refinery Looking for Gulf Location
Chamber Told Large
Plant Consid t. Joe
Chamber of Commerce President, George G. Tapper, told members Tuesday night
at the annual dinner meeting for officer installation, that Port St. Joe is being considered
as the location for a $60 million oil refining plant. According to the report from Tap-
per, the industry would begin operation with approximately 500 employees. The refin-
ery is looking for a Gulf location for importing and refining foreign crude oil.
Tapper reported that the indus-
try was requesting a location in ..... .. .. '
which it could have access to a .
deep water port and at least 2,000 OFFICE
acres of land in one parcel. ,. ."

the chamber that land will be made
available for any responsible indus-
try wishing to locate here. The let-
ter said, in part: "Our desire is to
encourage industry to locate in
Port St. Joe and Gulf County".
Tapper said that at present the
Chamber is preparing maps of the &d
land available and the harbor for -

The Chamber president reported
that the concern was primarily in-
terested in the available land, the
"deep water and a smaller commun-
ity. "We fit all three requirements"
New Officers Installed
Outgoing president, B. Roy Gib-
son, Jr., introduced Tapper as, new
president of the Chamber with the,
observation that Port St. Joe's last
new industry came during Tap-
per's last tenure as president and
that he hoped history could be re-
-peated in this area.
Tapper in turn introduced the
new officers for the coming year:
Bob Fox, secretary; Charles Stev-
ens, Jr., treasurer and directors
Bill Whaley, J. P. Fleishel, Dr.
Wayne Hendrix, J. Lamar Miller
and Harry Saunders. The new pres-
ident also introduced Joe Dowd

Series Set for Sunday
The Clinics will be set up in all
Gulf County schools as on March 1 and
the hours will be from 1:00 to 5:00 P.M.
The vaccine will be dropped on a lump of
sugar and taken by mouth as before.
Even though you have received Type
I vaccine you still must take Types II
and III for complete immunity. Dr. Hen-
drix urges all those who did not receive
Type I to take Types II and III and see
their family doctor about Type I.
In the event you have lost your im-
munization card, do not let this keep you
away as new cards will be issued to re-
place the lost ones.
To help save time and for your con-
venience, cut out the request form and
fill out before you come to the Clinic.
A 25c donation will be asked again to
help defray the expenses of the program.

Dr. Wayne Hendrix, Chairman, Gulf

Type III vaccine across the nation to
complete other community programs it
was impossible to secure enough to im-

turers at this time. As these communi-
ties have completed both Type I and
Type II, the manufacturers were able to
supply Type II from their storage. Dr.
Hendrix, as well as all the doctors in Gulf
County stressed the fact that it does not
matter in which order the vaccine is
taken as each type provides immuniza-
tion against one of the three known types

'-" We think that we would be more
than safe to use the $500,000.00 fig-
tire in our presentation, since we
believe .that it has been shown in
these columns rather convincingly
in past weeks that a courthouse
and jail now under construction in
Holmes County for less than this
amount would be completely ade-
quate for Gulf County's present
Most such bond issues are sold
on a 30-year basis. They draw very
attractive interest rates, because
interest from such bonds is tax
free and a small rate of interest
tax-free will earn investors more
net return than the more tradition-
al rates of five and six per cent.
Since we have no way of know-
ing what the interest rate will be,
we will not dwell on it.
Suffice it to say it would prob-
ably be in the neighborhood of 3
But, back to the principal fig-
Based on the figure of a $500,-
000.00 courthouse, those now pay-
ing taxes would pay approximately
$2.25 per year per each $100.00 in
taxes they are now paying, on the
principal. Since Gulf County is
eligible for Federal money in the
fallout shelter program for such
construction, this figure could be
cut in half with the granting of
Federal money for construction of
a new courthouse.
This figure is based on the bald
face of the debt. But, let's take a
closer look and see if the cost will
really come up this high.
First off, interest and principal
for county taxpayers should not
run over one mill per year. A mill
in Gulf County brings in approxi-
mately $15,000.00. Included in the
last budget of the County Commis-
sion was expenditures of $11,000.00
for maintenance of the present
courthouse for the period of a
year. Simple arithmetic will show
you how close this is to one mill.
Since a new building would have
very little to no maintenance for
several years, it .stands to reason
that taxpayers would have to
cough up a very minute sum to
pay the extra needed to pay off a
Now, who will pay these taxes?
We have figures to show you
this also. All accurate. All taken
from the tax collector's books.
To begin with, those who have
their names signed to the roster of
the "Little Taxpayers of Gulf
County", who are opposing the
move of the county seat, pay 1.01
per cent of the county's taxes. Tru-
ly, they are aptly named. Less
than a half dozen taxpayers in the
Port St. Joe area pay 77.86 per cent
of the taxes paid in Gulf county.
Those living out of Gulf County
Let us digress a moment to ex.
plain this statement.
Most homeowners in Gulf Coun-
ty and other counties in Florida
are kept off the tax rolls by vir-
tue of homestead exemption. That
is, their homesteads are ,exempt
from taxes on* the first $5,000 val-
uation of their value. Since most
average homes are valued by the
tax assessors throughout Florida
for less than $5,000.00, they pay no
taxes. This privilege is given the
homeowners by the state consti-
tution. This situation could not be
changed unless the Legislature
changes the constitution-which
The county can insist on reval-
uation, however, and raise the val-
ue of homesteads.
But let us give you a matter
brought up in January by Ed Hen-
derson, Executive Secretary of the
Florida Education Association; in
a speech in-Port St. Joe. Mr. Hen-
derson said, before the PTA, "it
is almost impossible to secure re-
valuation of real property (includ-
ing homes) in a county unless those
now exempt from paying taxes by
low valuations demand a revalua-
tion". Note, he said "those now
exempt". This is brought about
by the fact that there are more
votes exempt than there are those
that are not exempt.
Those who think that a new
courthouse will mean revaluation
are thinking of almost impossibili-
WILL WEWA DRY UP?
This is a question that has come
up and one certainly, that the
Committee for Relocation does not
want to happen.
The Committee has no ill will
toward Wewahitchka and wants it
to remain a thriving community.
Their interest is in placing the
center of county business in the
center of county population. And
72.22 per cent of Gulf County's
population is within a five mile
circle of Port St. Joe, according to
the U. S. Government census.
Let's take a look at Wewahitch-
ka's economy, other than funds de-
rived from operation of the court-
"I'd like to help-but I just do
not have the time right now."
How many times has each of us
said this, or something similar,
when we were asked to participate
in a worth-while but time-consum-
ing community project? It's so
much easier to reach in our pocket
and dig out a few coins, just to be
rid of the responsibility, than it is
to reach into our heart and find
the time the project deserves.
Fortunately for our community,
there is a group of people who al-
ways :seem to be ready to contri-
bute a little of their time as well
as their money to community needs,
and what is more, these people are
all full-time professional business
men and women.
They are the members of, the

The NHCA, and its local Affilia-
tes such as the Panama City Hair-

has adopted a unique program, in
which each year individual cosme-

from our community.

Last year, during a period of
less than desirable economy by
Port St. Joe industry, these indus-
tries paid to people living in We-
wahitchka and vicinity, a take-
home pay of $675,690.55. This was
paid to 137 people or, according
to the U. S. Census figures, one
fourth of Wewahitehka families.
In addition to this payroll, the
St. Joe Paper Company purchased
$2,829,821.17 worth of pulpwood
from Wewahitchka pulpwood pro-
ducers. We are informed that ap-
proximately one fourth of this sum
went for wages--or in the neigh-
borhood of $700,000.00.
What community the size of We-
wahitchka can "dry up and blow
away" with a payroll like this?

THE PEOPLE NEED THE
The courthouse is a peculiar op-
eration in that it is the business
and legal hub of the people of a
county. It is a necessity. It cannot
be termed a luxury in any sense
of the word.
Travel time spent in traveling to
and from the courthouse for legal
business is an expensive item. In
most years, these expenses will ri-
val the expense of theof thbare bare opera-
tion of the courthouse, although
most people don't know it.
It has been ascertained that ev-
ery family in Port St. Joe either
directly, or indirectly, pays $10.00
per year for travel time to and
from the courthouse in legal busi-
ness, arrests, etc.
In addition to these fees, every
family in Port St. Joe pays on the
average of $2.00 per year in license
fees that he would not have to pay
were the courthouse here.
This $12.00 per year for each
family in Port St. Joe comes about
in ways where those paying do not
realize it, but if he had the money
in hand at the end of the year, he
would certainly know it.
Much ballyhoo has been put
forth during the past few weeks
about how much the tax cut is
going to mean to the individual.
Moving of the Gulf County seat
to Port St. Joe will mean as
much or more to you than the
Federal tax cut.

county seat to Port St. Joe for

MALARIA: UNDER SIEGE
Malaria is oa the move -
toward oblivion. The greatest
world-wide program of disease
eradication ever attempted is
gradually and determinedly
wiping out malaria.
Thirty years ago, there were
100,000 cases of malaria in the
U. S. with about 5,000 deaths
each year, some 350 of these
occurring in Florida. Last year.
there were 100 cases and one
In Europe, with a population
of almost 650 million, malaria
has become almost nonexistent.
Complete eradication of the
disease within two years is ex-
pected in many Middle Eastern
and North African nations.
Only five years ago, Greece
had one million cases of mala-
ria with 10,000 deaths, and to-
day most of the country is free
of the disease.
Anti-malaria operations are
proceeding in 85 countries or
territories throughout the world.
Even so, there are countries in
which a beginning has not yet
been made to eradicate the
disease. Malaria is not a spec-
tacular disease; its victims show
no wounds or mutilations. It
comes to them as they sleep in
the quiet of the night, carried
by a mosquito.

at documenting methods of more
efficient use of teacher time.
Henry E. Goebel, president of
the Department of Classroom Tea-
chers, who has worked on the pro-
ject since its inception, said, "Tea-
chers and administrators have long
been concerned with finding ways
to provide teachers with more time
to teach. A cooperative effort on
the part of all members of the ed-
ucation profession is needed to
study the most efficient use of tea-

The project will aim at improv-
ing the quality of instruction
through more efficient use of the
teacher's time, energies and skills,
Consideration also will be given
to such matters as class size, staff-
puple ratio, utilization of audiovi-
sual in the schools.
The magnitude and seriousness
of the .problem confronting tea-
chers was brought to light last
summer when the NEA canvassed
local teachers associations seeking
to establish professional priorit-
ies for study.
More than 50 percent of the
teachers responding asked for
help in finding ways to devote
more time to do their jobs.
Goebel said a series of Condi-
tions of Work projects carried out
this past year by the DCT resulted
in a number of school systems ex-
panding the time for teachers to
teach and children to learn.
"In some school systems," he
said, "solutions have been found
for relieving some aspects of the
problems. It is being studied in
many areas, but progress is not

Talk Thursday On
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club
enjoyed an informative talk on
"Americanism" last Thursday, de-
livered by Byron McKissack of
McKissack urged the participa-
tion of every American to guard
and preserve our way of life. He
pointed to the fact that tyranny
degrades both those who exercise
it and those who allow it. "Any
country willingly allowing itself to
be taken over by despots, bring it
on themselves for not being vigi-
lant", the speaker said.
The speaker pointed to Ameri-
can's security as their greatest dan-
ger. "We tend to let down our

McKissack stated that freedom
doesn't guarantee one anything. It

Several pests may plague your
garden at this time, according to J.
E. Brogdon, entomologist with the
Agricultural Extension Service.
For example, certain night-feed-
ing beetles eat holes in tightly
wrapped clusters of bud leaves of
camallies. When these leaves ex-
pand, they reveal large holes in
the foliage. You can prevent this
damage with chlordane or DDT.
Spider mites will thrive during
dry spells ahead. They rasp away
the upper surface of many oramen-
tals and change the healthy green
color to a bronzed or grayish green.
One of the several miticides, such
as tedion, will halt the invasion of
Aphids are certain to be a pro-
blem where plants are young and
succulent. These little pests feed
on the underside of leaves, caus-
ing them to curl and sometimes
drop. Often a brood of aphids will
be sucked to death by blind fly
larvae. If you can't wait for friend-
ly insects to fight your battles,
then try controlling aphids with
malathion, lindane or rotenone.
Ants often protect herds of ap-
hibs so that they can enjoy the
sweet excreta of the aphids. So

To control ants in the garden,

Do not apply chlordane to foliage

You can control ants in lawns
with an application of two table-
spoons of 50 percent chlordane per
gallon of water. Pour the mixture
into the nest opening and on the
area around the nest. Then soak
the area with water to wash the in-
secticide through the ground and
into the nest.

These greenish night-feeding
caterpillars are about three fourths

They may be full grown before you

TALLAHASSEE Hunting and
fishing rules and regulations for
the 1964-65 season will be discussed
at 29 public meetings to be held
throughout Florida by the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission
during the months of March and
According to A. D. Aldrich, Com-
mission director, these annual
meetings represent an effort on
the part of the Commission to pro-
vide the sportsman of Florida an
opportunity to express an opinion
and to have a part in establishing
both hunting and fishing regula-
tions. The public meetings also pro-
vide the Commission an opportun-
ity to explain the reasoning behind
certain regulations The final 1964
65 rules and regulations will be
established at a meeting of the
Commission in Tallahassee in late
April, after all 29 public meetings
have been held.
The early pre-regulations pub-
lic meetings and the annual rules
and March meetings will serve
several beneficial purposes. The
public meetings in March and April
will allow sportsmen to voice an
opinion while the memories of the
last hunting season are still fresh
in their minds. The early meeting
dates will not conflict with summer
vacations and it is hoped that this
change will create a larger atten-
dance at the meetings. The early
dates will provide a margin of time
in which the Commission may ha-
ve available. current regulations
when the season opens.
Pre-regulations meetings will be
held at Marianna, April 1, Wewahi-
tchke, April 2, Quincy, April 3.

Dieting Do's and Dont's
Trying to lose weight? Here's a list of simple do's and don't
for every daily dieter.
1. DO eat protein. It speeds up weight
loss. Highest in protein are milk, eggs,
fish, poultry, veal, lean beef and lamb,
and cottage, pot and farmer cheese.
S 2. DO eat frequent small meals. A num-
S ber of small meals are better than fewer
a large ones.
3. DON'T eat quickly. The slower you ,,
eat the less you'll eat.
A DO ea A,.ds. The special low-
calorie caramel candy-like appetite de-
pressant containing vitamins and minerals

S satisfy and control your appetite without
5. DO exercise regularly. Doctors say
the main cause for overweight is too much
food coupled with too little exercise.
Walking is one of the easiest and best
ways of exercising.
6. DO control your weight in early
i adult life. It's safer and easier than trying
t. o reduce later on.
7. DON'T skip breakfast. It should
supply about a fourth of the day's food
irements. And an adequate breakfast
helps prevent overeating at lunch-time.

A general discussion was had
with reference to the Ft. Crevco-
eur Marker project, the same hav-
ing been approved at the meeting
of August 23,1963, giving this pro-
ject priority No. One for the pre-
sent budget year. Mr. Charles B.
Smith reported that he met with
the Chairman at her home in Port
St. Joe for the purpose of finaliz-
ing the wording to be used on said
Marker but due to the amount of
information being considered, the
final plan was not adopted at that
meeting. The Chairman said that
she wanted the Marker placed as
near as possible to the Crest of the
hill at the old Beach Hill Light-
house site, where it is planned to
erect a monument at a later date.
The Chairman appointed Mr. Wil-
liam J. Rish to act as Master of

the Train Wheels at Constitution

dication program for the Ft. Cre-
vecoeur Marker, that the expenses
of the dinner be paid by the mem-
bership and that the Commissions
guests be invited. The date has
been set for May 28, 1964.

she met with Mr. William J. Rish
as directed by the Chairman for
the purpose of locating the exact
site of the old ship yard, however
this mission was not accomplished
because they could not determine
a point of beginning from the in-
formation they had, but that Mr.
Kilbourn has promised to assist
in locating a point of beginning.
The Chairman told the Commis-
sion that the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany has agreed to preserve the
old anchor that was given to the
Commission by Mr. M. C. Wood;
that the preserving process will
be completed before the end of

PRAYER MEETING (Wednesday) ..
Florida fishermen are reminded
that boaters must comply with
the state's boat safety and regis-
tration laws prior to shoving off
for that favorite fishing spot.
"It is the responsibility of each
boater to inform himself of the
provisions of the 1963 Florida
Motorboat Laws and it is now the
duty of our wildlife officers, by
by act of the legislature, to en-
force these laws," according to
John Brown, regional manager,
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Four points to remember in-
volve (1) registration, (2) safety
devices, (3) running lights, and
(4) safe operation.
(1) All pleasure boats propelled
*dq 01 unqe oaom jo ASuiqaem Aq
must be registered. Application for
pleasure boat registration certifi-
cates are to be filed by the boat
owner with his county tax collector
must be oboard'the boat at all times
the vessel is in operation.
(2) All boats must carry one (1)
life-saving device in good and ser-
viceable condition, approved each
passenger; one (1) oar or paddle
and one (1) anchor and rope of ap-
propriate size and length. The ap-
proved life-saving devices can be
buoyant cushions or vest type life
Boats over 16 feet in length
must meet additional requirements.
(3) All boats operated between
sunset and sunrise, regardless of
length or whether or not a motor
is used, are required to have and
use running lights.
(4) It is unlawful to operate a
boat in a reckless manner or while
under the influence of alcohol of
drugs. A person is guilty of reck-
less operation of a vessel when
he operates a boat, or manipluates
any water skis, aquaplane, or sim-
ilar device in willful or wanton
disregard for the safety of persons
or property, or at a speed or in a
manner likely to endanger life,
limb, or property of any person.
These regulations apply to all
boats plying the navigable waters
of Florida which includes inland
lakes, ponds, streams, and any
other waters in Florida.
"Florida wildlife officers have
been instructed to pay particular
attention to violations in these four
basic areas while enforcing game
and fresh water fish rules and
regulations," Brown said.
Complete information on boat
laws is available from the office
of the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission, P. 0. Box 576,
Panama City, and from the Flor-
'ida Boating Council, 107 West
Gaines Street Tallahassee.
Ask for the booklets "Safe
Boating in Florida" and "Facts
for Pleasure Boat Owners."
Earnings By 15th
People who work for themselves
must make Social Security self-
employment tax reports on their
1963 earnings by April 15th, ac-
cording to John V. Carey, District
Manager of the Panama City Soc-
ial Security Office.
Any self-employed person (except
a doctor of medicine) who had
net earnings of $400 or more for
the year is covered by Social Secur-
ity, Carey continued. He must file
a Federal Income Tax Return with
the District Director of Internal
Revenue to report his earnings
and pay the Social Security tax of
5.4 percent on his net profit. Some
self-employed people who did not
owe any income tax have lost
some of their Social Security cov-
erage because they did not know
they were still required to make
a self-employment tax return if
their net earnings amounted to
