Needless to say, I took a terrible
ribbing about my picture being at
the top of this blurb last week.
And to cap it all off, Glenn
Boyles even bought space (as con-
servative as he is) to poke fun at
Glenn joined a host of others,
including my own children, to won-
der at why I picked such a young
But now, let's look at the record.
I know for a fact that Glenn's
picture on his column is at least
four years old. I know, because I
had the engraving made four years
ago. When the picture was taken,
I don't know.
The picture of me was taken
just last year.
The thing that Glenn and the re-
mainder of my critics don't rea-
lize is that I carry my age very
Or could it be that I have aged
enough in one year to invite such
A .person approached me this
week bemoaning the fact that we
were advocating moving the court-
hquse and building a new one in
Port St. Joe when our schools need
so many things.
I explained to this person that
a new courthouse will not take
money from the schools nor will it
deprive Gulf County's school sys-
tem of the ability of securing
more money in the future.
We had to explain that Gulf
County is levying the limit of mills
by State law. There is no possible
way for them to get more Gulf
County money under the present
set-up of property valuation.
The only way for Gulf County's
schools to get more money is for
the State to increase their partici-
pation in financing schools or for
county property to be re-evaluated
to a higher level. It's as simple as
So, rest assured that the con-
struction of a court house in Port
St. Joe would in no way take mon-
ey from Gulf County's schools or
would even divert money that
might possibly be used for the bet-
terment of schools.
If such were the case, I, too,
would be against the moving of
the courthouse, since I have six
children presently in Port St. Joe
schools and desire for them the
best that they can receive.
So we remain, in favor of moving
the courthouse to Port St. Joe for
the betterment of our county and
for the betterment of our schools
MacArthur knew what he was
talking about when he said, "Old
soldiers never die, they just fade
away". And that is exactly what
he did peacefully in a co-

lived in so much violence as he
should be afforded a peaceful
Two Changes .
The monthly meeting of the Dir-
ectors of the Chamber of Com-
merce was held Monday evening
April 6th. Following the meeting
President George Tapper announc-
ed that the Directors had agreed to
recommend, to the membership
of the Chamber, two changes in
the Constitution and By-Laws of
One of these proposed changes
would change the name of the or-
ganization to the "Port St. Joe-Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce.
The other change would give
the Chamber Ten Directors in-
stead of the present Nine. The
Tenth Director would automatic-
aly be the President of the Port
St. Joe Merchants Association and
he (or she) would have the same
and equal voting power as the
These changes will require the
approval of the membership of the
Chamber and President Tapper
said that they would be submitted
to the membership, for their con-
sideration, at the June meeting.

Failure to Publish
Notice Is Cause
A special meeting was held by
the County Commission Tuesday
afternoon as a result of conten-
tion that the May 5 election to de-
cide whether to move the county
seat or not, would not be legal be-
cause the law for calling the elec-
tion had not been complied with.
Representing the Committee for
Relocation at the special meeting
was Port St. Joe attorney Silas R.
Stone, who contended that the
election would not be legal since
a legal notice was not published 30
days prior to the election in coun-
ty newspapers, as required by law.
This notice, according to Stone,
would have had to be.published in
last week's issue of The Star or
The Gulf County Breeze to com-
ply with the law and make the
Stone said, "We do not want the
election postponed necessarily, but
we do want the election to be le-
gal when it is held."
Stone said that in his opinion the
county had two avenues to follow:
(1) have the court rule on the val-
idity of the May 5 date or (2) pub-
lish notice of another date, possi-
bly the second primary election on
County Attorney David Carl Gas-
kin, replied that if the election is
moved to May 26, then a possible
litigation will be forthcoming from
the Little Taxpayers who are op-
posing the referendum. Gaskin
recommended that the matter be
placed in the courts for a decision
by the next Commissioner's meet-
ing which will be held next Tues-
Gaskin took full blame for the
notice not appearing, as it was
necessary for him to be out of
town last week.
A notice of election for the ref-
erendum is being published in this
week's Star by the county in case
the Court declares the May 5 date

MAKES A BIG HIT! Hilarious (dare-devil) Values in
the Spotlight this week (See advertisement)
Let's crank off with the follow-
ing M.P.R. chuckles (Maybe old
stuff to some of our readers) "By
the time we get old enough not to
care what anyone says about us,
nobody says anything". "The man
who rows the boat doesn't have
time to rock it". "The modern day
miser is anyone who can live with-
in his income". Advice to the love-
lorn: "Go fishing-plenty of suck-
ers in the stream". To hen-pecked
husband: "Start raising chickens-
it's relaxing to watch a hen pick
Starting them young: We needed
a sink rim and telephoned a local
business firm. A tiny, but strong
feminine voice answered. "Who's
in charge of your store?" I asked.
"I am", came the reply. "Honey,
how old are you?" I inquired.
"Four years old", said the sweet
little voice. "Do you know what a
sink rim is?" I asked. "No, but
grandpa does. He'll be here in a
little while", said the little mana-
ger. I made one big mistake-not
teaching my daughters to assume
responsibility at the age of 4!
We throwed away notes for this
week's Tattler and had to start
from scratch. Do recall one was a
lengthy essay on the pessimistic
and dissiUllusioned humans (It hap-
pens to all of us at some time or
other in life). If you are under 50
years just pay these feelings no
mind. The best years in life come
after five decades. The things that
bothered you earlier in life will
look like duck soup. And this does-
n't mean you'll be free from prob-
lems. You'll still need a challenge.
Signs of awakening: The St. Joe
Merchants group, under the cap-
able leadership of John Blount are
having luncheon meetings semi-
monthly-25 to 35 attendance-and
growing interest and enthusiasm
is producing results. It's good to
see a downtown office of the local
Chamber of Commerce. Fortunate
to have genial, seasoned Joe Dowd
generously serving without pay.
Let's all support our Chamber and
pull together for a. greater Port St.
Joe. Opportunity knocks!
By this time next week, daughter
Barbara and the writer plan to be
cooling our heels (in the snow,
maybe) in Virginia's city of "sev-
en hills", Lynchburg, another city
that slept for many years. Now,
bustling and booming with new in-
dustry, shopping centers and Vir-
ginia (restrained) hospitality. We're
visiting our pleasant and hospitable
in-laws, the William E. Perkins (no
restraint there!) whose second love
is Florida. We're sorta looking for-
ward to their retiring (not so many
years) here. Bill, Sr., is an avid
fisherman, and hunter. From
Lynchburg, we'll backtrack to Mt.
Airy, N. C. "The Granite City" to
see great, great grandpa and
grandma Boyles where country
ham, daily gathered fresh eggs,
hot biscuits and corn hoecake is
the order of the day-In a pictures-

tains overlooking as if to protect

a last crack at the editor of The

Postmaster Urges Citizens to Beware
Of "Good Offers" Coming Through Mail
Noting that mail frauds filch
millions from the public annually
and are increasing, Postmaster
Chauncey Costin urged today that
local residents take care in respond-
ng to solicitations from unknown
companies or to offers "too good
to be true".
Costin said that he had received
informational material from Post-
master John A. Gonouski about the
problem and that the Postal Ser-
vice is pressing a strong drive a-
gainst quakery by mail, and fraud
promotions, gyp work-at-home sc-
hemes and the like.
Costin noted that one of stiffest
prison terms ever administered to
a medical "con man" was given
to Roy Wright DeWelles, of Pass
Christain, Miss., who made an est-
imated $1.5 million peeling a
worthless "oxygen therapy" device
known as Detoxacolon.
DeWelles was arrested after
sending out 10,000 postal cards
promoting the quick scheme.
In another recent case at San-
Francisco, Edward H. Johnson, do-
ing business as Comstock Land
Company and E. H. Johnston Com-
pany, was sentenced to six months
in prison, followed by four and
one-half year probation, for mail
frau. Johnson was also ordered
to make restitution of $60,000 to
purchasers of worthless desert land
near Elko, Nevada. Postal Inspec-
tors accounted for nearly fifty in-
vestors who signed contracts to-
taling $250,000 in the belief that
the famous Nevada Comstock
Ranch was involved.
"It should be emphasized", Cos-
tin added, "that most businesses do-
ing business by mail are reputable
firms, including many that may not
be familiar to the prosuective pur-
chaser. However, if there is any
doubt, it is best to get information
from reliable sources, such as the
Better Business Bureau. In cases
where there is a gunine basis for

April Is "Cancer
Because cancer is still a serious
health problem in Florida, having
been the cause of death of more
than 8,800 persons last year, and
with an expectancy of 17,000 new
cancer cases this year, Governor
Farris, Bryant has issued a pro-
clamation which endorses April
as "Cancer Control Month" through-
out the state.
The proclamation points out that
1964 has been designated by the
American Cancer Society as, "Tell
Your Neighbor To Fight Cancer
Year." More than 65,000 men and
women in Florida will dedicate
their services to urging more peo-
ple to guard themselves and fam-
ilies against cancer.

After returning to my home in
Gulf County in 1955, I determined
that I would some day serve the
people as County Judge.
My father, who was County
Judge, permitted me to work in
and observe the workings of the
Judge's office during 1955 and
1956. During this period, I was em-
ployed as license clerk. This ex-
perience will permit me to effi-
ciently perform the duties of this
highly important office immediate-
ly on assuming office.
I have sold my insurance busi-
ness so that my full time and
energy will be devoted to being
your County Judge.
