Read The Classifieds Star
Classifieds, that is!
By Newer Model
Last Saturday afternoon, workmen began unloading a new (to us)
newspaper into The Star's plant. The press is a Number Three
Meihle, which will print four of The Star's pages at a time.
Shown above preparing to start the big eight ton press down
huge timbers toward its resting place inside The Star building are
Curtis Bray to the right, N. E. Dykes, left and Junior King on the
lowboy trailer bed. '
About three months ago The Star's old Number Two Meihle,
named "Big Bertha" by The Star's staff, warned us that she was'
planning to retire. She got more cantankerous than usual and threw
a driving gear housing right out in the middle of the floor. This
was a gentle hint by "Big Bertha" that since she was reaching the
mandatory retirement age of 65, she was getting ready to take the
But we knew "Bertha" wasn't through yet. We felt she had a
few more years of usefulness left in her, so we set out to find her
a good home one where she could print a few circulars every so
often or maybe just a small newspaper, to keep her hand in the busi-
ness, like most old printers like to do. But "Bertha" would have none
of this. We had worked her to death, since she Was old and capable
of printing only two of The Star's pages at one time. This made her
work double, and she just couldn't stand up under the load.
And so Thursday, two weeks ago. with a mighty sigh, "Big Ber-
tha" drew her last breath, threw up her rollers, shucked her drive
gear teeth out in the floor and uttered her last breath. And so, we
had last rites for "Big Bertha", born 1887, died, July 16, 1964.
She led a useful life and turned over many revolutions.
"Big Bertha" has now been replaced by a younger sister .
another Meihle printing press, which will probably be dubbed "Big
Bertha, II" by her operators. "Big Bertha, II1" is a later model of
her predecessor. She has been operated by careful poeple and ap-
pears to be in good shape. She is turning out this week's paper with
hardly a whisper heard from her innards. She should do yeoman du-
ty at The Star. She will certainly get her chance.

We Think Gulf County Should Look. ..
And Plan Before Leaping At A Library
Let it be understood from the outset that we are not
opposing libraries, per se. We believe in libraries. We be-
lieve in reading. We like to read and we encourage others
to read as much as possible. And, of course, the logical
source of good reading (which every reader should stick to)
is a library, be it public, church, school or private.
We feel that none of the individuals or churches in this
area can effectively carry the books necessary for a person's
well-rounded program, much less a community's well-rounded
Our school libraries are fair in their capabilities of of-
fering proper reading fare.
And then, too, you come face to face with the prob-
lem of whether or not the people will avail them of such
a facility. In the past, in the case of the Municipal Library
here in Port St. Joe which is now defunct, people did not
use the library. Whether it was the type or number of
books available, we do not know.
We feel that every community that has matured to the
point of settling back and growing gracefully and steadily
instead of in spurts and'raggedly, shows its maturity by the
establishment of a library. We believe that Gulf County
has grown to this point. A library lends maturity to an area,
that no other source can offer. But we do not believe
any community can get the full benefit from a library on
wheels that visits periodically and has to ultimately return
to another county for its orders, its books to offer, its head-
quarters. Indeed, under the plan the County Commission is
now flirting with, Bay County, would in effect have charge
of our library.
But Gulf County would purchase all the facilities, in-
cluding the mobile library, the books, and expenses for
The advantage of joining up with this Bay County
group would be in the book exchange capabilities, but we be-
lieve this can be managed without becoming a "subsidiary"
of Bay County's library.
And, too, we cannot see the County Commission arbi-
trarily levying a one mill tax for something that is as vague
as Gulf's proposed library program is. There is no idea as
to what services will be provided, except the bookmobile,
which 'seems to have top priority. Figures given the County
Board indicate that the bookmobile will take all of the
county money, according to estimates from library people
of the State and the Bay County library. There will also
be Federal money available, in the amount equal to what the
county puts up for two years only. State money in the
amount of two or three thousand dollars is also available.
But the thing that bothers me is that permanent facili-
ties are not guaranteed, and with income available, we can-
not see their provision in the near future. The money just
will not be there. We also think that the money to be put
into the bookmobile is just too much for the services offered.
We do not believe library service will be effective for Gulf
County people until a library is established and maintained.
A bookmobile gives the allusion of temporary measures and
temporary measures never meet with a glowing success.
We would urge that the County Commission at least
postpone this program for a year and try to outline a plan
of establishment for a library to serve as a guide for a library
commission to follow. After the plan is tentatively arrived
at and some cost ascertained to see what our dollar will pro-
vide, then is the time to weigh the cost against the advan-
