TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1964 NUMBER 31
On Question Of Whether Or Not To Move County Seat
Judge McCrary Rules
Election Date Illegal
By DANNY MADDOX
It's springtime once again and
to some 70 men this means one
thing, "Softball". We are looking
forward to a very successful sea-
The league has set up a 30 game
schedule. There will be two games
each Monday and Thursday night.
Game times will be at 7 and 9 p.m.
I have watched each of the four
teams in their pre-season work-
outs, and I predict a real tight race
for the City Championship. My per-
sofnal observations of the teams
FLORIDA BANK: They are the
defending champions and will field
about ,the same team this year.
Their strength is hitting the long
ball. Most of this will be provided
by Buddy Ward, Joe Davis and
Gene Raffield. However, Gene tells
me, he is more valuable on defense.
VITRO: A much improved team.
The acquisition of veterans Billy-
Joe'Richards and Benny Hudson
and rookies Billy Versiga, Leon
Hobbs and Don Nelson has streng-
thened both the offense and de-
fense. Waring Murdock said, "They
may not be the best team in the
league, but they are certainly ex-
citing to watch."
WEWA BANK: A sound, consist-
ent team. They helped themselves
-bT -gnirig two-rookies,,Gus Grif-
fin' and Jimmy Gainnie. I think
Waring Murdock will be opening
in centerfield. He said, "I am real-
ly looking forward to playing the
WILEY'S SUPPLY: A well-bal-
anced team that is always hard to
beat. They have several veterans
returning. Among these are three
promising youngsters Johnny Ray,
Bob Munn and David Nance. Ray
may be one of the best defensive
players in the league.
Our season opens Monday night
when Vitro tangles with Florida
Bank at 7:00 p.m. Wewa Bank
meets Wiley's Supply in the 9:00
p.m. game. The public is cordially
invited to attend all of our games.

This is the amount of water that
was thrown onto the St. Joe Pa-

Saturday and Sunday morning to
extinguish a fire that threatened
an inventory of nearly $600,000

By Friday night, a lake had been

proximately 12 million gallons of

The big fire started Friday at
2:05 when sparks set bark in the
woodyard afire. High winds fanned
the blaze into the wood stack be-
fore measures could be taken to
put out the small blaze.
Eight fire pumpers worked all

night and up into the day Saturday
flooding the area and confining the
blaze to one of six wood piles.
Port St. Joe's two pumpers, along
with the volunteer fire department
were first to answer the alarm
and were quickly joined by pump-
ers from Highland View and White
City. During the afternoon Friday,
pumpers were called in from Par-
ker, Lynn Haven, Wewahitchka
and Quincy. Panama City sent
equipment and firemen to provide
fire protection for Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka while their equip-
ment was being used.
The fire was declared officially
out at 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

namely, during our absence will

to my (some say 'little woman' but
I shall refrain from endearing and
misleading terms!) hard working
wife. She seemed to be pleased
when I left. Yes. just plain glad to
get rid of me! But I'm a believer
in that old adage: "Absence makes
the heart grew fonder". She's all
alone in that country teepee with
the foaming, rolling Gulf in the
foreground and rugged swamp,
snakes, hoot owls (a friendly squir-
rel. now and then) in the back-
ground. I'm making the wild guess
she'll be missing me in two or
three days (she's subject to change
in the twinkling of an eye!!) She'll
get awful blue and lonesome and
a cheerful word (plus a dollar or
two spent, maybe?) will mean a
lot in tough times like these. Thank
you, friends, I knowed you'd do it!

I am a Candidate for the
of GULF COUNTY
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.
I will appreciate your vote and
