THE STAR


Plansto construct a pulp bleaching plant at the St. Joe
paper mill at a cost in excess of six million dollars have
been approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.
In announcing the decision to proceed with the biggest
project at the mill since the major expansion program of
1252, Tom S. Coldeway, St. Joe Paper vice president, said
that it will enable the mill to produce a broader range of
products and thus improve. the company's competitive
position in t1ie packaging field through product diversifica-
tion. This in turn should contribute to more continuous
operation of the mill, he said.
Bleached paperboard, which is easier to print and
makes a more attractive package, is being used increas-
ingly for packaging consumer goods, Mr. Coldeway said.
Until now the 16 St. Joe Paper container plants have
been filling orders for these containers by using bleached
board purchased from other companies. When the new
unit is completed, they will be able to manufacture all of
their containers from stock shipped to :them from the Port
St. Joe mill.
Construction of the new bleach plant, .to be built in
the pulp mill area, will be started early next year and will
take about '18 months to complete. It will consist basically
of a continuous digester, a bleaching plant, and pulp
dryer, and have a capacity of 500 tons per day of bleached
pulp.
The unit will use principally hardwoods which will be
cut from the extensive company-owned woodlands as well as
purchased from other producers in northwestern Florida
and surrounding areas. The hardwoods will require separ-
ate handling in the wood yard and the installation of new
chippers and chip storage bins.
Pulp produced in the bleach plant will be used either
in the manufacture of board: at the mill, or baled and sold
to other paper and board producers in this country and
overseas.

What's the best Christmas gift you can give your family? A new TV? A
motion picture camera? A walnut stereo? Perhaps. but we think there's
an even better gift. and it needn't cost a penny. What is it?

A safe Merry Christmas and a safe Happy New Year! Yes, this is a gift of
gifts and one you can provide. To help you, we're prepared these six
driving tips, which we hope will go a long way toward making your family's
motoring this season nthe safest and most enjoyable ever.


HAVE YOUR CAR CHECKED. Remember the Circle of
Safety"-brakes, tires, lights, steering, exhaust, glass, windshield
wipers and washers, rear-view mirror, horn. Make sure they're all
in safety shape all the time.

USE SEAT BELTS. They help prevent injuries, save lives.
Seconds will buckle -a belt; an instant will releave it. Safeguard
your family-use seat belts whenever and wherever you drive or
ride.

GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK. Whether going downtown or
on a trip, allow enough time so you won't feel rushel. On long trips
take frequent breaks. Arrive relaxed.

BE ALERT TO HAZARDS. Adjust your driving to road,
traffic and weather conditions. Remember, posted speed limits are
for normal driving conditions.

ADOPT GOOD DRIVING HABITS. Merge smoothly into
traffic keep pace with other cars. signal well in advance of
your turn or change of lanes.

USE COURTESY CONSTANTLY. Everywhere-at inter-
sections, when turning, while passing or being passed, at night when
your headlights are on high beam-"Make Courtesy Your Code of
the Road." It pays!


We hope these tips will help you and your family this season DRIVE FOR
A SAFE HOLIDAY ... whenever you go.

Group Blameless

In Destruction
A couple of weeks ago The Star
carried an editorial deploring de-
struction to facilities at the Cen-
tennial Building by teen agers in
a Thanksgiving dance.
The dance and party was spon-
sored by the Eta Upsilon Chapter
of Beta Sigma Phi.
The Sorority wants everyone to
know that they had adequate cha-
perones at the party to prevent
such occurrences and that the
deeds of destruction must have
been committed after the party was
over.
The Star is glad to make this
clarification, as it seems everyone
should understand that when some
organization is trying to help the
youth and get a blackeye from the
object of such charity, they should
be especially absolved of any blame
of such deeds and upheld for their
attempts at bringing .wholesome
recreation to some who apparent-
ly didn't appreciate it.
Likewise, all the youth at the
party didn't vent their "apprecia-
tion" for the Eta Upsilon's efforts
by wrecking the Centennial build-
ing restrooms. '
It is a pity that the misdeeds of'
a few have to cast a pall (however
unwarranted) upon the name of
those trying to serve their com-
munity and the majority of the
youth whom they are trying to
serve.

GI OrI i --
A CHRISTMAS TRIBUTE
The greatest compliment ever paid to any teacher in all
ime by anyone was that which a young man named John
naid to his teacher when he said, "The Word was made flesh
and dwelt among us-full of grace and truth."
Here was a teacher with a power of communication never
excelled. He had the ability to unveil the great mystery called
life and put into unforgettable language glimpses of the great
-ealities. His parables have become the guidelines of our
spiritual heritage. But, great as were His perception and
power of description, there was something else which tran-
scended His poignantly articulate word pictures. Not only
did He focus the light of understanding in the minds of men
but He stirred their innermost feelings and fused the link
between what were their deeply felt needs and the truth which
could satisfy those needs.
Even so, this was not the attribute which most impressed
those who knew the teacher best. Somehow the truths He
taught were embodied in the works He wrought. Like a per-
fectly documented thesis, His teachings were validated and
came alive in the total range. of His interpersonal relation-
ships. He urged compassion, understanding, courage and
faith. He advocated caring and sharing, giving and serving.
Then He became the personal demonstration of these quali-
ties. He was what He taught, the personification of what He
believed. When His students wanted to know the full mean-
ing of what He said, they observed what He did. "The Word
, was made flesh and dwelt among us."
Across' the centuries the noblest teachers of the race
have emulated His example. Humanity has been lifted up
and led forward, not by general averageness, nor. by popular
vote, but by those unique souls who, by their example, have
taught mankind the rules of the road.
Today we are blessed by a growing company of dedi-
cated teachers who belong to this noble succession, teachers
who believe in the dignity and worth of human personality,
teachers who are convinced that if the problems of living
together in the modern world are ultimately to be solved,, it
will not be by the coercion of fear nor the compulsion of
force but through emphatic understanding and creative good-
will.


In the frenzied whirl of our swiftly moving, highly com- C-
plex society there are many fearful souls who are baffled and
bewildered as they scan the human horizon of modern man
in his quest for a better life. They interpret the ferment of
social unrest, the flashes of racial distrust, the decline of
morality and the aggression of hatemongers as evidence of
a civilization that is decadent and dying. But Is it not also
true that seen in the perspective of man's potential dignity
and worth, these forces may be, indeed, the birthpangs of a '
new order struggling to be born? With man's rapid accumu-
lation of knowledge- and his determination to explore and
understand the unknown through the techniques of science,
may we not be standing on the threshold of a break-through
which could usher in an era of more adequate opportunities
for all? Carl Sandburg puts it this way: "I see America, not
in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us. I
see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from
the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, (
great days possible to men and women of vision and faith."
It was the vision of faith ushered in by that first Christ-
mas which swung all history on its hinges, opening forever
the portals of eternal light. It is the teachers of men with
His stance toward life who keep alive humanity's highest
hope.
At this Christmas season, as we commemorate the bilt
of the Great Teacher, let us honor the heroic teachers of the
past and pay tribute to the thousands of dedicated teach-er.
among us, for they are the heralds of "Peace on earth, go1-
will to men."

George L. Onett of Miami has
been appointed Florida State March
of Dimes Chairman for the 1965
March of Dimes, Ed Foreman, Flor-
ida State Director of the voluntary
healthy group, announced today.
In accepting the appointment, Mr,
Onett stated "I know that birth de-
fects cripple and kill more Ameri.
can children than any other hu,
man disorder, The March of Dimes
is leading the fight against birth
defects because it believes that
people are ready to join an all-out
campaign against this tragic waste
of human life."
"As a matter of fact," he declar-
ed, "one might call certain birth
defects perpetual epidemics since
they are relentlessly transmitted
from generation to generation. As
for emergencies," added Mr. Onett,
"is it not an emergency when 250,-
000 birth defect babies are born
each year, thousands of them doom-
ed to a lifetime of mental and
physical disability?"
The state chairman pointed out
that the March of Dames in the
past six years has made important
advances in the fight against birth
defects. Through the 50 March of
Dimes-financed centers and clinics
across the country, trained medi-
cal teams are providing the best
medical care available for birth de-
fects children and working to de-
velop new techniques which will
enable many more of them to lead
a useful life.
Mr. Onett, a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh and the Uni-
versity of Miami Law School, is
associated with Merrill, Lynch,
Pierce, Fenner and Smith, Inc. The
father of five children, he lives at
338 N- E. 90th Street, Miami, Flor-
ida.

Asit comes from the oven, this casserole gives forth the
fine fruity fragrance-of apples, the meat aroma of browned
sausages, the invitation of fresh, hot cornbread. Well it might

and cornbread 'combined in one.savory new dish.
First, the apple sauce with a good piece of butter, brown
sugar and lemon juice to dress it up. Half the browned sausages
are put right in with the apple sauce, the cornbread batter
poured on top and the whole baked. Then the remainder of
the browned sausages are laid on top, and back into the oven
the dish goes. So you have sausages below deck and on top,
with a gentle bubble of apple sauce coming up in the center
and between the cornbread wedges ... all most flavor.

A spreading seasonal hobby is making Christmas medallions
from tin-can tops. All you need are needle-nosed pliers, an ice
pick and a pair of small tin snips. Cut tin-can lid into six even
divisions, leaving a dime-size uncut area in the center. Then cut
each section into thin strips, taking care to cut first from the
right, then from the left of the section, leaving an uncut strip
down the center of section. Snips will cause thin strips on left
to curl up automatically; on right, to curl down. Using pliers.
you can twist these curls into any other pattern desired. The ice
pick is for punching a hole to string medallion on tree.

whether an access road will be pro-
vided any time in the near future.
In the absence of definite infor-
mation on this point, our Board is
understandably reluctant to au-
thorize the expenditure of addi-
tional funds on this site.
We very much regret that this
situation has developed. As you
know, we believe this park has tre-
mendous recreational possibilities,
and that it will unquestionably
justify the extensive development
program we have planned for it.
I hope you will soon be able to of-
fer us some encouragement.
Very sincerely yours,
N. E. Bill Miller,
Director.

the Bureau of Maternal and Child
Health, said "The major problem is
self-medication. A woman may be
pregnant and not know it and care-
less use of a drug could cause mal-
formation of the child. The critical
time is during the first three
months. She should take drugs only
on a physician's advice."
He said there are eight known
causes of malformations "but we
suspect there are many more. Proof
is most difficult."
One of the causes he gave is
German measles, a mild disease
which sometimes isn't even recog-
nized. "There is no vaccine against
this disease," he said. "The best
thing is to expose all young girls
so they may have immunity when
they are grown and able to have
children."
Other causes are a parasite call-
ed toxoplasma gondi which science
knows almost nothing about; some
drugs which may break down es-
sential food vitamins in some sus-
ceptible persons; some hormone
drugs; severe iodine deficiency,
ionizing ;radiation, the principal
one now being x-ray-with fall-
out a possible future problem; car-
bon monoxide; and the infamous
drug thalidomide.
"Most seacoast inhabitants have
little trouble with iodine defi-
ciency because of the seafood they
eat; but inlanders can be seriously
affected unless they eat fish or
foods grown in areas adjacent to
or once covered by tidal waters
since this is the principal source
of iodine in our food," Dr. Crane
said. "The first food adulterant
