By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Editorial


The moment of truth has arrived with Tuesday just
around the corner.
With the moment of decision at hand, we must ask our-
selves several questions and answer them, without bias, for
the betterment of our county.
First, who are the leaders to move the county seat? It
is a group of nearly 800 tax-paying voters of Gulf County,
who desire better government and a progressive county.
Their only interest is the improvement of the county govern-
ment, better service from government on a county level and
a progressive county.
Now who will profit by moving the county seat to Port
St. Joe? Every citizen in Gulf County will profit by moving
the County Seat to Port St. Joe. Those who do not pay
taxes will benefit in a more progressive government which
will serve to up our standard of county operation. It will
eliminate the practice of feeding half truths to the citizens of
Gulf County as has been done by the Little Taxpayers during
the campaign and expecting the people to" believe them. It
has been practice rather than exception to allow information
"approved" by a small group who control county government
to reach the majority of the people of the county. Moving
the county seat into the lap of the majority of the people will
eliminate this. For the taxpayer, it will mean a more stable
government and a better basis for growth.
Who will pay for a new courthouse located in Port St.
Joe? Those NOW PAYING TAXES will pay the bill. They
are the ones who asked to pay the bill, and the ones who
are spearheading, the movement to get to pay the bill. It
seems only fair for everyone to give what relief can be given
to those who have to pay the bill. They are fully aware that
they will continue to pay the bill.
In going to the polls to vote on May 26 there are two
things you should remember:
If you are not now paying taxes, you will not have to
pay taxes when the new courthouse is built in Port St. Joe
because of costs incurred by construction.
There is no way the schools of Gulf County can be tied
to this question. The schools are a separate taxing body and
have no way of getting their hands on monies levied in taxes
by the county. And, too, the schools are now receiving ev-
ery penny they legally can from Gulf County taxpayers. The
law will not allow them another mill in taxes. We cannot de-
ny-tihe schools moneysthey cannot legally acquire in the first
place. ..... ( ""
Last, but not least, RIt us again impress upon you the
fact that Gulf County is- g6iig to get a new jail and a vir-
tually new courthouse, regardless of how you vote on May
26. The architect is hired, part of the plans are already
drawn and in the office of the Clerk of the Court. The only
thing holding up construction is a decision by you as to
where you want to put this new building. We hope you
feel on May 26, like we do, that this public building should
be placed where the public can use it in Port St. Joe.


Michigan, Unions Still Not In Agreement

On Work Rules and Wages In Strike


d*


WE ENDORSE TAPPER
It isn't often that The Star endorses a local candidate for of-
fice. As a matter of fact, we seldom endorse anyone for office be-
cause we feel that the people are perfectly capable of making their
own choice from the offerings of the prospective candidates. And,
for the most part, on the local scene, the citizens can hardly be hurt
too bad regardless of who they pick. And for the most part, we
think you have a good job of "picking" in the past.
But, neither has The Star been the "shrinking violet" type.
When we are convinced that definite action is desired for the bet-
terment of Gulf County as a whole, we are not loath to speak out.
And on each and every occasion we have spoken out for the bet-
terment of Gulf County, we have done so through a sense of good
citizenship and not because of a favor in hand or promised. We
maintain our dignity, though it continues to make us a poor strug-
gling small-town publisher, trying to make a living.
Because we think the betterment of Gulf County and its future
is involved, we take our pen in hand and endorse George G. Tap-
per of Port St. Joe for State Senator. We feel that Tapper is the
best man for the job, especially insofar as Gulf County is con-
cerned. -
It isn't as if we were asking you to vote for a person just be-
cause he lives in Gulf County and we feel will have the interest of
Gulf County at heart even though this should be reason enough.
We feel that Tapper, through his past experience as a legislator
which, by the way, is more experience than his opponent has, can
well represent all of this district, including Gulf County, to the state
and nation as a whole, in a way that we would not be ashamed of.
Tapper, in his first tour of duty in the Senate received appoint-
ment to several important committees and performed his duties with
credit. He received favorable publicity for his county and district
throughout the state and we believe he will do so in the future.
We put before you, then, the name of one whom we believe
to be capable to represent Gulf County to a high degree for the
next four years, as well as the entire Fifth Senatorial District.


Michigan Chemical Corporation
announced yesterday that the nine-
day-old strike of its union employ-
ees was still on, but the magnesia-
producing company was still oper-
ating at normal capacity.
Bob Vervaeke, plant manager,
said that engineers, chemists and
other supervisory personnel flown
in from the plant's home office in
St. Louis, Michigan, as well as the
management and clerical staff of
16 who stayed on the job, were
keeping the plant in operation 24
hours a day.
"We can continue to operate in-
definitely", Vervaeke stated, "al-
though we are hopeful that Union
members will see fit to resume ne-
gotiations in the near future."
Company officials said that ne-
gotiations broke up last Tuesday
morning, with approximately 15
hours remaining before the strike
hour.
Vervaeke stated that he and oth-
er company officials, after seven
days of negotiating, had assumed
that the items of disagreement
were resolved to near satisfaction
to both parties, and, Vervaeke ad-
ded. "we were quite surprised
when the strike was announced."

Anticipated For May 26 Primary


Court House

Location To

lots out of a registered 4,797 elec-
tors.
Following the closing of the polls
the Jaycees will man their "tote

counted throughout the county.
Everyone is invited to attend the
"election party" and see' the re-

Michigan Strike
(Continued From Page 1)
The multi-million dollar plant,
which located in Port St. Joe in
1959, had a payroll of approximate-
ly $700,000.00 for 84 employees in
1963.
Although the strike has been ac-
companied by sporadic spurts of
violence, Vervaeke and .other com-
pany officials stated they refused
to blame the rank and file union
membership. "Almost all of our
men are good men", he stated,
"and men that I am proud to have
been associated with, even though
we're having a disagreement right
now."
The spurts of violence have in-
cluded cut telephone cables to the
chemical plant and gun-fire aimed
at knocking out plant transform-
ers.

THE WHOLE TRUTH


THIS IS THE FULL TAX PICTURE WHICH THE GULF COUNTY BREEZE

DIDN'T TELL YOU

Last week, the Breeze printed the above advertisement which claimed the duPont interests paid no
Federal Income Taxes, then went on to raise a question about the future of St. Joe Paper Company tax
payments in Gulf County.


Everybody knows that the St. Joe
Paper Company pays the biggest part
of Gulf County's taxes and is going
right on paying them. St. Joe Paper
also pays a Federal Income Tax as do
the other affiliates of the Alfred I. du-
Pont estate. The total taxes paid by
the duPont interests-Federal income,
State, County and City taxes--are
shown in the chart at the right. These
show that the duPont interests are

paying very substantial taxes and have done so consistently over the years. This is the
full and complete picture the Breeze tried to distort by giving only a half truth.
The duPont estate itself does not pay a Federal Income Tax because the money it re-
ceives goes for charitable purposes in aiding crippled children, supporting education, and
similar purposes. The income that the estate receives is what is left AFTER ALL TAXES,
Federal, State and local, have been paid by St. Joe Paper Company and the other affiliates.


Figures Show duPont

Estate Pays No Tax
Reproduced below are the figures from the March 20, 1964, report
by Congressman Wright Patman (Dem., Tex.) on the Alfred L duPont
Estate's total income and Federal income taxes paid in the years
1951-62.: The figures are from the duPont Estate's income tax returns
which Patman obtained.
On Feb. 26, 1964, in the Senate, Senator William Proxmire (Dem.,
Wis.) noted that in 1963 also the duPont Estate, with an income of
over $9.Rmillion, paid no Federal income tax.
Conmmenting on this non-payment of income tax, Proxmire said the
duPont Estate "no doubt is considered to fall under the provisions
foi testaioeitnry trusts."
0owedver, Proxmire said, the duPont Estate "acts very much like
a family holding company," and if it were "treated for tax purposes
asia'ami y, holding company, I believe it would be subjectto the
regular, corporate income tax. I suggest the Internal Revenue Service
might igt g this matter some further study.

A Message to the Community

This is a message to the people of Port St. Joe from the

management of the Michigan Chemical Corporation. As

most of you know, we're in the midst of a "family feud" out

our way. We don't like it any more than you do, nor do we

pretend to be all "right" and the other side all "wrong".

But we do want you, our friends and neighbors, to know that

we are still looking and working for the "right" side. We

have never left the negotiating table, and we are still willing

to meet and to talk with responsible union leaders who have

the authority to represent their group and settle their griev-

ances in the time-honored fashion of compromise. We love

Port St. Joe and wish to remain here. The plant shall be

kept moving, as we have chemists, engineers and other sup-

ervising personnel from our home office in St. Louis, Michi-

gan, as well as our own management staff, wearing the

"hard-hats". Thank you for your patience and understand-

ing in this difficulty, and thank you for being such good

neighbors the past five years. We pledge to you our con-

tinued efforts in settling this difficulty.

Wrong Information


On Courthouse


Is Corrected Here
And so, the Little Taxpayers and their Gulf County
Breeze continue to distort the issues in this matter of moving
the County Seat to Port St. Joe. It is apparent why the is-
sues are continually clouded by the people trying to keep the
County Seat in Wewahitchka, 28 miles from the people who
must make use of its services. It is evident that they pre-
sume that if you have an unclouded view of the issues, you
will vote'overwhelmingly'to .move the County Seat into the
lap of the; people of the, county, where it should be.
Many'And various ruses, have been used.
THE SCHOOL ISSUE
'One of the favorite and the one to receive the most
attention by those seeking:to keep the County Seat in Wewa-
hitchka is designed to play upon your sympathies for your
child and his .education. This is, naturally, an important
issue with every parent.
The Wewahitchka boosters for leaving the County Seat
in Wewahitchka have gone to great lengths to plant the seed
in your mind that if a new court house is not built, there will
be that same money, which might be used for a new court
house, available to build schools in the county.
This-is entirely false.
Gulf County's schools cannot legally receive another
dime from the Gulf C6unty taxpayer, unless more taxable
property goes on the tax rolls. The State of Florida limits
village which the schools may levy upon the people of the
county. Gulf County schools have. been levying this legal
limit of millage for some time. They could not even get the
money to build a new school, even if Gulf County had the
money in the bank right now to build a new court house. It
just isn't legally possible.
If it were possible, and these people are so concerned
over this problem, why haven't they done something about
better schools long ago? Because they couldn't legally do so
that's why.
We know why the people of Wewahitchka used Kenneth
Whitfield as a speaker Saturday... to bring up this much
talked-of school situation once more. And (we can read
their minds on this) if such a suggestion comes from a
school board member, you were expected to believe that he
knew of a way to accomplish such a miracle.
We know Kenneth Whitfield to be honest. We believe
that if you will ask him in private if money that might be
used to build a new court house could be used to build a
new school, he would have to tell you, "no"!
DO WE NEED IT?
A visit to the courthouse would convince even the most
skeptic of skeptics that every office in the courthouse is
crowded.
A visit to the jail (with the necessary clothespin on your
nose) would convince you that something drastic is needed
in this area.
And we think it has been proven beyond any shadow of
a doubt that the County Commission has plans to build a
new jail.
On file in office of the Clerk of the Court right now is a
set of preliminary plans for a new jail, drawn by Norman
P. Gross, Architect and presented to the County Commission
on August 27, and estimated cost to the tune of the neigh-
borhood of $135,000 to $140,000. Cost of renovating the
old jail into useable space, will cost an additional, and large,
amount of money.
A letter is on file in the office of the Clerk from Louie
Wainwright, supervisor of the Florida Division of Corrections
which says that it will cost at least $100,000 to renovate the
old jail to meet state standards arid even then the old
jail would still be inadequate. We take his implication to be
that the only thing that will solve Gulf County's jail prob-
lem is that a new one be built.
Architect Mr. Gross has told us, at a cost of around
$140,000.
Wouldn't it also be reasonable to assume that if it would
cost $100,000 to renovate the old jail that it would cost in
the neighborhood of an equal amount to make the jail space
habitable as office space?
Thus, with a new jail (which we need) and renovation
of the old jail space into usable space, Gulf County has a
bill of $240,000.
This is almost enough to build a new court house. in
Port St. Joe.


We have used the example of the Holmes County court-
house now under construction as a basis for setting a value
on a new edifice for Gulf County. This courthouse, with its
jail, cost $489,000. This isn't a whole lot more than the cost
for a new jail and renovating old jail property is it?
And we feel that a courthouse the size of the Holmes
County jail and courthouse is entirely adequate for Gulf Co.
The courthouse alone has twice the floor space-of the Gulf


WHuT WILL IT COST YOU? .-.:.
'". In your 'free, issue of .the Gulf County .Breeze of last
week, you are led to believe that a new courthouse will put
Gulf County taxpayers in the same position with a new court-
house, as the national debt has federal- taxpayers. Such is
not the case, 'and we believe the editor of the Breeze .knows
this.
The editor of the Breeze waxed eloquent on his defiance
of federal aid. (While in reality the editor of the Breeze is
on the Wewahitchka City Council which has just completed
construction on a federal housing .project .... with that
"tainted" federal money. If it's so bad to take, why did he
advocate his town taking this handout?
Before he starts making hay with thisstatement, we. will
say that we know they have to pay it back ... if and when
they collect it over and above the cost of administrating the
rental property and its upkeep..
AT NO TIME HAS THE COMMITTEE FOR RELO-
CATION ADVOCATED THE USE OF FEDERAL MON-
EY FOR CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW GULF COUNTY
COURTHOUSE. We HAVE said that Federal money will
possibly be available for such a project because we
feel this is ,an important. piece of information-to be con-
sidered... AND WE HAVE PRESENTED ONLY FACTS
PERTAINING TO THE ISSUE, BE THEY FOR OR
AGAINST OUR CAUSE. We have given you only au-
thenticated facts that we can back up by public record.
We cannot say as much for the Little 'Taxpayers.
When Gulf County goes to build a new courthouse and
jail provided they don't go overboard the cost to
taxpayers will be very nominal. The cost to non-taxpayers
will be nothing.
Providing Gulf County builds a new courthouse at a
cost of $500,000, it would cost TAXPAYERS an extra $1.25
per year on each $25.00 tax they are now paying. THOSE
NOT PAYING TAXES NOW, WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY
TAXES FOR A NEW COURTHOUSE, -
WE REPEAT, ALL INFORMATION FURNISHED
YOU BY THE RELOCATION COMMITTEE IS AUTHEN-
TIC AND VERIFIED BY PUBLIC RECORD. THE MAT-
TER OF YOUR COURTHOUSE COST IS PROVIDED BY
A CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT AND IS COR-
RECT, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE GULF COUNTY
BREEZE WOULD HAVE YOU TO BELIEVE.
A PRIME EXAMPLE
A prime example of trying to delule you the voter was
the last week's issue of the Gulf County Breeze.
The Breeze in its implications would have you to be-
lieve that the St. Joe Paper Company and its affiliates pay
no Federal taxes,
We realize that their statement that the Alfred I. du-
Pont Estate paysano Federal taxes is correct. And we also
realize that the Breeze of last week was a deliberate attempt ,
to make you believeq that St. Joe Paper Company, The. Apalachicola Northern Rail,
road, The Florida Nitional Bank and other affiiates of the
St. Joe Paper Company.
We know that you are not simple enough to believe such
implications but evidently the editor of the Breeze, or
whoever wrote his article, does not think so highly of your
intelligence.
We thought everyone knew (including the editor of the
Breeze) that the Alfred I. duPont Estate is a fund to give
grants to hospitals, schools, churches, research, etc. It is
similar to the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation
and other such charitable organizations in our nation.
We know that you are familiar with several children
here in Gulf County who have received expensive medical
treatment (free to their parents) during the years that St.
Joe Paper Company has been in Port St. Joe.
We can't believe that the editor of the Breeze could pos-
sibly advocate taxing money used for such good to humanity.
We also can't feature a newspaper editor deliberately
trying to mislead his readers.
If the editor of the Breeze was ignorant of the status
of the Alfred I. duPont Estate, we declare'that he should
check his facts more thoroughly before trying to put them
off on to the citizens of Gulf County as fact... as has been
the case with several other pieces of "information" circulated
through the Breeze by the Little Taxpayers.
The truth is, the Alfred I. duPont Estate paid no tax
to the Federal Government for the years of 1959 through
1962.
The fact is, also, that the St. Joe Paper Company and
its affiliates paid $35,313,668 in Federal income tax from
1959 through 1962. And during this same period of time,
they paid $11,570,594 in State, County and City taxes.
But be that as it may.
Out of the 791 petition signers submitted to the County
Board on August 27, 1963, not one signature on the card was
spelled "St. Joe Paper Company", "Florida National Bank",
"AN Railroad Company" or any other of the affiliates of the
St. Joe Paper Company. They couldn't sign the petition, and
they can't vote to move the courthouse to Port St. Joe.
And to go a step further, there were less than a half doz-
en signatures on the petition of people owning stock in the
St. Joe Paper Company and its affiliates.
The petition presented to the County Board on August
27, 1963, was signed by ordinary people, like you and I who
desire that the courthouse should be moved to Port St. Joe
so that all of Gulf County (including Wewahitchka) could
grow and prosper.
GULF COUNTY IS GOING TO GET A NEW JAIL
AND A VIRTUALLY NEW COURTHOUSE DURING
THE NEXT FEW YEARS. THE QUESTION IS, WHERE


DO YOU WANT TO BUILD IT ... IN WEWA HIT KA
AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE IT WILL SERVE OR
IN PORT ST. JOE, WHERE 72% OF GULF COUNTY'S
CITIZENS RESIDE.
A courthouse is to serve the needs of the people of a
county. If Gulf County's courthouse serves the needs of the
people of Gulf County, it will have to be built in Port St.
Joe, where the people are.

DOYLE CARLTON BUILDING TALLAHASSEE, FLA.


May 22, 1963

Honorable E. C. Harden, Sr.
Chairman, Board of County Commissioners
Gulf County Court House
Wewahitchka, Florida
Dear Mr. Harden:
Upon the receipt of a letter from the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners of Gulf
County dated March 28, 1963, I assigned two groups of my staff to inspect the jail facilities of
Gulf County. These inspections were necessary before I could make recommendations to your
Board. I have the reports of the two groups, composed-:of two prison inspectors, the Division
Architect and my Deputy Director for Inmate Treatment. Based, on-their findings, I would like
to make the following observations and recommendations.
The Gulf County Jail is not adequate for the county's use, the facilities fail to provide space
to handle serious offenders, the jail equipment is rusted and worn beyond economical repair,
the plumbing and sanitary facilities are inadequate to the point of being a health hazard, the
electrical system is dangerous and the facilities for women and for juveniles are so inadequate
that they 'should -not'be. used.- ..,., .,
TO PUT THIS.JAIL IN FIRST CLASS, CONDITION WOULD COST IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
OP ONE HUNDRED ..THOUSAND DOLLARS ($100,00.,0),i.AND YOU.-WOULD. STILL. HAVE AN
INADEQUATE JAIL,
Onthe basisof .Qur findings Itwould recommend that the county secure a separate location
and construct a jail with facilities for 50 persons to include, white and colored male juveniles
and white and colored female juveniles. We feel that this will meet Gulf County's jail needs
for the next.35 years. ,We would further recommend that this jail be so designed that it could
be added to'if the. ,need should arise. We would further recommend that in the new jail you
include adequate facilities for the entire operation of the Sheriff's office.
It was further. ourfindings.#that the present area used by the Sheriff and the present two
floors of theajail could be economically renovated and redesigned into additional space for county:%
offices in the courthouse.
We. are happy to have been of service to you.

Sincerely Yours,
/sI LOUIS L. WAINWRIGHT,
Director
cc: Honorable George Y. Core
Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick


This letter is on file in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court, George Y. Core, as an
official document, received by the County Commission and filed as part of their record.
Without comments on our part, you can see the tone of the letter. You can see that it
leaves little to supposition. The man didn't stutter. In the first paragraph, you can see that
the Gulf County Jail was given a thorough examination by competent people.
YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE $100,000.00 IS!
As an aftermath of this letter, Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick directed the County Board to pur-
sue further, its recommendations.
This led to the hiring of an architect to draw plans for a new jail and/or specifications for
repairing the old one.
The architect reported to the Board the night of August 27, 1963, the same night the Com-
mittee for Relocation presented its petition to call an election. The architect said that he had
provided Z o plans to renovate the old jail "BECAUSE IT WASN'T FEASIBLE TO RENOVATE
OLD JAILS DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE MATERIALS IN THEIR CONSTRUCTION. IT
WOULD BE CHEAPER TO TEAR EVERYTHING OUT AND REPLACE WITH NEW MATER.
IALS." These were the words of the architect.
The architect then presented the Board with his proposed plans for a new jail.
These plans are on file' in the Courthouse.
The architect is still in the employ of the county to design a new jail and provide plans for
renovation of the old jail space in the courthouse. THIS PORTENDS TO US THAT WE WILL
GET A NEW JAIL AND A VIRTUALLY NEW COURTHOUSE, REGARDLESS. THE QUESTION
IS, DO WE WANT TO REBUILD ON THE OLD SITE OR SHIFT ITS LOCATION TO MEET THE
NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE?
Much has been intimated of a letter from Mr. Wainwright, by the Little Taxpayers to the
theme that it would require only $15,000 to repair the old jail.
This letter is not on file in the Courthouse. It's not being on file puts this letter in the
position of never having been written, insofar as the official files and therefore the official in-
tention of the County Board is concerned.
We are .not denying that such a letter may have been written. It very well could have
been .. But, again insofar as OFFICIAL RECORDS of Gulf County are concerned, it was not.
The County Board must necessarily file all its correspondence and official intent, due to
the fact that the Board 'changes membership occasionally, and, naturally, a project such as this
isn't accomplished in a day. A record of past proceedings must be provided for the Board
members successors. If the Board intended to make suchr- letter as the Little Taxpayers
have been publicizing, as part of their official policy, it would be on file in their records.
So far as the purported letter is concerned that intimatesthe -jail can be repaired for $15,-
000 is concerned, it doesn't ov i-belong in thepi-ctfoTrbecause it isn't part of the record .
and .we can be concerned witat isn't part of the record in deciding this issue.

Letters To -

The Editor 1
The following letter was'writ-
ten to Edward A. Bandjough, ed-'
itor of the Gulf County Breeze
in response to last week's edition
with a request that it also be re-
produced in The Star. Here it is!
Dear Mr. Bandjough,
Thank you for sending me your
little propaganda paper yesterday,
Funk & Wagnalls New Standard
Dictionary defines "Propaganda" as
quote: "An institution or scheme
for propagating a doctrine, etc, or
the principles thus advanced"
Therefore to me The Gulf County
Breeze is a propaganda paper .
especially this one dated May 14,
1964.
Maybe you getter get the record
straight. We have been in Port St.
Joe 27 years this coming Au-
gust, so I feel I have the privilege
of speaking out as an old timer.
We came here and opened our
business because the duPont's were
in the process of building the St.
Joe Paper Co., investing their mo-
ney in Gulf County. Why are you
fighting them? Because they have
several million dollars? Don't you
just wish you had one million dol-
lars? I do!
Do you know what St. Joe looked
like 27 years ago. Well, I will tell
you Reid Ave., was about a
block and a half long. Most of the
buildings were old wooden ones.
Lots of vacant lots in between. I


or 20 feet down the center was
piaved.- The rest was dirt.. Reid.Ave.
has since been- widened.. It is a nice
wide main street because before
my time here, I was told the rail-
road tracks ran down the center
of it. .
. All the business houses on Reid
Ave. today, except, the Costin's
came here because of the duPont's
building the paper mill. Do you
know St. Joe looked like a wide
place in the road when we came
. : and Wewahitchka if. you
looked real hard, you might see it
when you rode through.
It's nice to know how you peo-
ple in the other end of the County
feel about us down here. Quote Mr.
Ramsey in The Star, May 14, "There
is no doubt 72% of the business in
Gulf's courthouse is carried on for
the people of this area, since 72%
of the people of the county live in
this area." I believe if you will
check the tax records, you will
probably find that most of the tax
money comes from this area .
do it and print it. Let's get
the record straight. The new court
house cannot make people who are
not now paying taxes pay them .
and IF WE DOWN HERE who
do pay most of the taxes are will-
ing to have our taxes increased if
necessary why should the non-
tax payers have any objection?
Now let's turn the page and
see how many of the people who
live in your end of the county de-
rive their living from the duPont


ThE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1964


know how many paved roads were
in Gulf County 27 years ago? Look
up the record. I can tell you .
but you look it up. Well then, the
tax payers could save some money
there, couldn't they? Because with-
out the duPont interests here in
Gulf County and the popula-
tion growth we would not need
all these paved roads so therefore
less people to keep them in repair
. and build new ones. Also while
we are about it let's take a
look at your bank. What was their
assets before the duPonts invested
their money in Gulf County? What
are they today? This is public rec-
ord as all banks have to, by law,
print a financial statement every
year. Look all this up and print it
. will you dare?
Now, what if the duPont's picked
up all their little marbles and
went home their little golden
marbles what would happen?
I can tell you St. Joe would
fold up. All us business people
would have to live and we
could not do it without the du-
Ponts. Oh, maybe two or three
could stay but would they want to
in a ghost town ,and Wewahitchka
what would happen to it? It would

During the past year, Hundreds
of free professional beauty services
including shampoos, permanents
and new hair styles were adminis-
tered to institutionalized persons
within our community, by the
member of the Panama City Hair-
dressers Offiliate no. six Associa-
tion.
This welfare work, extensive as
it is, represents only a portion of
the time and effort which these
good citizens dedicate to the needs
of our community.
Many of the members of the
Panama City Hairdressers Affili-
ate no. six, despite the fact they
are full-time professional business
people, have.Ifound opportunities
to participate in a great number
of worth-while civic, cultural, so-
cial and educational programs be-
ing conducted in five Counties
Bay, Gulf, Calhoun, Franklin, Wash-
ington.
The Natural Hairdressers and
Cosmetologists Association not on-
ly encourages this local communi-
ty spirit among its 70,000 mem-
bers throughout the country, but
it recognizes good and active citi-
zenship to be a prime ,uty of its
members.
To further encourage leadership
in community programs among its
nation-wide membership, the
NHCA has established an annual
annual Community Leadership A-
ward Program.. In tis programm in-
dividual hairdressers 'ceivy rec-
ognition at the local, state and na-
tional levels for outstanding ser-
vices performed in their own com-
munities.
Several Affiliate no. six area
hairdressers are being considered
for this year's award. Local win-
ners compete for state recogni-
tion, and winners of state competi-
tions will compete for the nation-
al award given by the professional
association.
In keeping with your policy of
bringing community spirited pro-
jects to the attention of your read-
ers, I think that you will find the
NHCA Community Leadership pro-
gram an excellent example for ed-
itorial comment, in addition to
any stories in your paper.
I would be very pleased to fur-
nish any further information you
may wish, on this program, or on
the accomplisnents of our local
NHCA members. ,

"All people planning to obtain
jobs for the first time should get
a Social Security number now. This
also applies to students who are
preparing to work during the sum-
mer vacation period," said John
V. Carey, Social Security District
Manager in Panama City, Florida.
It is important that all workers
have a Social Security card show-
ing their correct number. Your
card should be shown to each new
employer. This is essential to make
sure that your maintained correct-
ly.
Many employers will not hire a
new employee if he does not al-
ready have a Social Security card.
Furthermore, the benefits to which
you may become entitled will be
based upon the earnings reported
to your record.
Social Security cards can be ob-
tained from the local Social Securi-
ty District Office, 1135 Harrison
Avenue, Panama City. Those work-
ers who have lost their cards can
obtain a duplicate card showing
their correct number. Original
cards will. be furnished new work-
ers who have never had a number.
Employees requiring original or
duplicate Social Security cards can
get application blanks from their
local post office if there Social Se-
curity office in their town.

Look Out for

'Home Accidents
JACKSONVILLE Spring time
can be trouble for the entire family
unless extra caution is observed,
the State Board of Healh. said to-
day.
The home is always a dangerous
place but perhaps more so for mot-
her if she goes in for spring clean-
ing with extra vigar. Dad runs a
triple hazard: taking down and
cleaning the screens; mowing the
lawn: working in the garden. Child-
ren seem to run into accident al-
most everywhere.
Doctor George McCoy, Director
of the Board's Accident Preven-
tion Program, gave these tips for
avoiding accidents:
Don't stand on chairs or ladders
unless they'er anchored firmly; and
watch out for loose electric con-
nections or wires over which you
might trip.
Get tetanus 'shots in case you
cut of scratch yourself. If you in.-
jure yourself, wash the wound with
soap and water, let it bleed a little

Be very careful in using plant
sprays or dusts. Read the instruc-

them. Wash carefully after using
them. Keep them out of childern's

where three-quarters of the people live and seven-eighths of the taxes are
paid.

. We're tired of having to drive fifty miles every time we want to file a mort-
gage or record a deed.


. We're tired of paying extra fbr our fishing and hunting licenses.


We're tired of having our government run by a small group at the other end
of the county.

S. And we ar efed up with having them tell us where we can have our new court-
house and jail.


WE WANT IT HERE!

We're sorry if the Wewa people don't want to let it go.

But it is our business and our jobs and our money that are supporting the
county and we think we have a right to decide.

So if you're not concerned about this --YOU SHOULD GET CONCERNED!

If you want to move the courthouse you must vote for it and get everyone else
you can to vote for it.

They've challenged us up north with their boast to block vote.

LET'S SHOW THEM WE MEAN BUSINESS!


Go to the polls on May 26 and vote to

move the county seat to Port St. Joe

Are You Concerned



About Moving



the Courthouse?



S. .. If you're not, you'd better be.

The people up at Wewa ARE concerned and they are prepared to cast a solid
block of votes AGAINST moving it to Port St. Joe.

They have been told it is THEIR courthouse that Wewa will fold-if it loses
the County Seat.

DON'T BELIEVE IT FOR A MINUTE!
