Our congratulations to the Port St. Joe Sharks for their victory
in the 'first basketball tournament of the new Gulf Coast Confer-
ence last Saturday night. To be the first champions of the new
Conference is a signal honor for the Sharks, we think.
SBut, of course, they have conducted themselves like champions
all season long.
It's easy to heap praise upon a championship team, isn't it? But
? remember the football season when the praise wasn't so quick to
come? Spme were quick to blame the bad season on a lack of will-
ingness ?o play, and several other reasons.
But 'these same boys have won a basketball championship.
This should lay to rest any reasoning for the poor football
r: We eli~y! e the poor football showing was because the other
Steams wre st better than we were by the same token, the
basketball championship was won because our boys were better at
basketball than their opponents.
Your-can't win them all and: it is very essential to learn
how to 1Ise and to bounce back to win at a later date-as the
Sharks ifve pone.
Winter hhs been here.
We are now a firm believer in the groundhog myth. The hog
saw his shadow and we immediately received some of the nastist
winter weather we have had all year. If it lasts for six more weeks
we believe everybody will be a "believer".
America has slung about 15 tons into space. And yesterday, a
shot was scheduled to be sent toward the moon.
What does it mean? We couldn't say. But it is impressive.
One thing it proves is that we have muscles. But then we let
ourselves gt tangled up in a mess like Viet Nam and convince,..
othersthatf-what we have proved in years past and at Cape Canaveral
(excuse me, Cpe Kennedy) just isn't so.
It was irferysting, along these same lines, to see the special

Lowly Milk Weed Is
Possible Cancer Cure
Extracts of a common milkweed,
used for centuries in widely scat-
tered areas of the world to treat
warts and cancer, have been test
ed by scientists at the University
In the test tube experiments,
the extracts destroyed cultured hu-
man cancer cells.
The office of the Florida Divis-
ion of the American Cancer So-
ciety, Tampa, made the announce-
ment this week. The information
Helpful household hints and recipes

Home Service Adiser
was given in a report issued from
Madison, Wisconsin, by Professor
S. Morris Kupchan, Dr. John R.
Knox and John E. Kelsey of Wis-
consin's Department of Pharma-
ceutical Chemistry and Dr. J. A.
Saenz Renauld of the Department
of Biology, University of Costa
The milkweed, known scienti-
ficially as Asclepias curassavica,
is popularly called "cancerillo" in
some parts of the world. It has
been used against unwanted
growths in Costa Rica, Mexico, In-
dia and elsewhere.
The Wisconsin group, which for
several years has been testing ex-
tracts of a wide variety of plants
for anti-cancer activity, managed
to obtain the active principle of
the "cancerillo" in pure crystalline
form and to work out its molecular
structure. The anti-cancer mole-
cule resembled the heart-stimulat-
ing glycosides obtained from plant
families which yield digitalis.
The pure extract of the "cancer-
illo"-also called calotropin-was
extracted from roots, leaves, flow-
ers and stems of the milkweed. The
purification was accomplished in
seven steps, each of which involv-
ed separating substances in a se-
ries of solutions.
The kind of milkweed studied is
a showy plant which displays
white, pink, orange, purple and
green flowers. It was named after
the Greek poet, Aesculapius, whose
descendants distinguished them-
selves as practitioners of the heal-

Plants Are Hungry
After Long Winter
By Hervey Sharpe, Editor, Agricul-
tural Extension Service
Most plants are as modest as
humans. The first thing plants do
when they awake in the spring is
to cover their limbs with leaves.
Dogwood, redbud, peaches and
plums and a few others are excep-
tions. They prefer to put on a
show of color before dressing.
Regardless of how plants begin
spring growth, you will find them
hungry after a long winter's sleep.
Therefore, plan to give all orna-
mentals an .application of fertil-
izer to carry them through their
first spring growth.
Lawns will need at least 20 to
30 pounds of a balanced plant food
per 1,000 square feet to form a
carpet of green.
If rye grass is on its way out,
then mow and rake it out of the
permanent grass. Remember, dry
ing March winds will cause grass
to burn, so sparing the water hose
will spoil the grass.
If your ulcers get fidgety be-
cause part of the lawn is not as
green as you think it should be,
quit worrying-most likely the soil
temperature is out of kilter at that
spot and there is temporary short-
age of iron. To save you from wor-
rying overtime about the pale
grass, you can bring green color
back quickly by applying one
pound of Geigy's 330 ironchelate
per 1,000 square feet of lawn.
Azaleas and camellias need a
good shot of fertilizer as soon as
blooming is over. Play it safe and
get one of the many special azalea-
camellia fertilizers on the market.
After feeding these acid-loving
plants, add another layer of leaf
mulch around these plants.
Roses will need an application
During the last six years, the
Kupchen group has tested several
thousand plants for possible anti-
cancer activity. Over one hundred
have produced extracts which kill-
ed human or animal cancer cells
in test tubes without great damage
to normal cells.
Extracts which kill cancer cells
in test tubes became candidates
for testing against transplanted
cancers in mice.
U- I" rII
of nutrients during their first
flush of bloom. The size of bush
and soil is a factor. But when in
doubt, apply two ounces of an
8-8-8 fertilizer to each rose bush.
If daylilies don't get their early
spring meal and a ground cover of
mulch, they not only will be slow
to flower but will make only a lazy
effort to set color.
After feeding all the plants,
then consider making' cuttings of
poinesttia ixora, ligustrum, azalea,
croton and viburnum. Place cut-
ting beds in a shady spot, or fur-
nish shade for the project. Cut-
tings of many types of ornamentals
from heavy root systems most
quickly in mixtures that contain
acid peat. Experience is the best
teacher to determine the best root-
ing medium to use for different
plants. When choosing cuttings,
remember, everything being equal,
rooting ease' increases the nearer
the cutting is taken to the root sys-
tem of the plant.
Summer flowering bulbs ready
for planting include crinums, can-
nas, dahlias and agapanthus.
Annual flowers which may be
planted now include aster, balsom,
begonia, blue lace-flower, celosia,
chrysanthemum, marigold, morning
glory, rose-moss, nasturtium, straw-
flower, sunflower, tithonia, ver-
bena and the wish-bone flower.
Most of the annuals can be seed-
ed directly into the garden. Sow
the seed thinly in shallow trenches.
A baking powder can with holes
punched in the bottom and a three-
foot stick attached for a handle
serves well as a seed shaker. This
home-made seeding gadget takes
the back-aching stoop out of seed-
Next, cover the seeds lightly
with firmed soil. Cover the plant-
ing, if possible with wet burlap or
other materials, to hold in the
moisture and to prevent seeds
from washing. Be sure to remove
the covering before the plants
If you want to keep annuals
blooming for another month, keep
the flowers picked. If plants go to
seed, the blossoming period will
be cut short.

CONSISTENCY NO JEWEL TO LBJ
President Johnson, in his State of the Union message,
declared that the nation is dedicated to "freedom from arbi-
trary" not merely for Americans but for all.
"Our nation was created," he said, "to help strike away
the chains of ignorance and misery and tyranny wherever
they keep man less than God means him to be."
Yet, within minutes, he gave the signal for a nationwide
return to compulsory unionism in saying that he would ask
Congress for "changes in the Taft-Hartley Act including
Reed Larson, executive secretary of the National Right
to Work Committee, promptly'branded this strange "incon-
sistency" as "the most fantastic parad6x'of'the campaign to
repeal 14-B" and bracketed Labor Secretary Wirtz with the
President in this offense against the common sense of the
American public. He quoted Mr. Wirtz as saying, "The large-
edifice of civil rights is dependent on equality of employment
opportunity," and again: "If men are to be truly free in
accord with the tenets of democracy, then they must be free
to seek a livelihood without prejudice." Mr. Larson said that
he thought it "strange that Mr. Wirtz can offer these brave
words at the same time he is leading the fight to further the
arbitrary control by the Federal Government over the lives
of all our citizens."
-Referring to a recent survey showing that 67 percent
of Americans favor voluntary unionism, Mr. Larson charged
that in the face of mounting public opinion, "the President
has now openly pledged to take away another individual free-
Still, no one with a good memory should be surprised at
the President's "inconsistency," Mr.. Larson said. When the
President was campaigning in 1960 and again last year, he
did not mention that as a Congressman he voted for Taft-
Hartley, as a Senator he voted against repealing 14-B and in
1960 supported Texas' Right to Work law in campaigning for
re-election to the Senate-while campaigning against it: as
AMA TO THE RESCUE
A comprehensive health plan for those over 65 who do
not have the means of paying for hospitalization and mmedi-
cal costs is the eleventh-hour answer of the embattled Ameri-
can Medical Association to Ithe Presidebt's massive, yet in-
adequate plan for solving asll of .the health problems of all
of the people at incalculable cost.
For the aged, the Administration would provide under
Social Security sixty days in a hospital, sixty days post hos-
pital care and 240 home visits-and that's all! As Dr. Dono-
van F. Ward, AMA president, has pointed out, these services
represent "only a fraction of the cost of sickness," while the
Association plan-limited t8 those in need and administered
by the states under the Kerr-Mills law-includes payment of
all surgical, medical and drug expenses as well as hospital
and nursing-home care.
Under the AMA proposal, all those over 65 would buy
protection through established insurance facilities Blue
Cross-Blue Shield or others-paying all, part, or none of the
cost, according to their financial ability as established by the
Kerr-Mills "means test." Needed assistance would come from
the state and matching Federal funds supporting the Kerr-
Describing this help-for-those-who-need-it program as
"sound and workable," Dr. Ward said it "would accomplish
far more than medicare, with none of the attendant evils of
unpredictable expense, invasion of medical practice by the
Federal bureaucracy or disruption of the private health in-
surance industry by the Government."
It also relieves the already-shaky Social Security pro-
gram of a burden it might not survive and saves its captive
contributors from tax increases that could well become in-
supportable. And besides, it is still difficult for many Ameri-
cans to believe that self-reliahnc, ambition, industry and dedi-
cation to some code of self-respect are no longer virtues, but
the eccentricities of a square!n ;,
At very last, the AMA plan has the "Great Society"
drum-beaters all shook up! They are screaming that it's too
late-Medicare will pass. So, maybe we shou4t iour Sena-
tors and Congressman over again .that we still don't want it!
On January 11, a year ago, er. Luther Terry, Surgeon
General of the United States, issued his famous war ung
against cigarette-smoking as a means of contracting rung
cancer. Today, on the first anniversary of the first effort by
the Government to curb sales of a legitimate item of trade
(which produces about $3 billion a year in excise taxes for
the Government) and with 1964 sales close to the 1963 record
figure, the Surgeon General tried again-and again without

1,961 of Those Receiving First Social
Security Payments 25 Years Ago Still Are
Twenty-five years ago, the first
monthly benefits under the Social
Security law were paid. Social Se-
curity records show that of the
people who received benefits for
that first month, 1,961 are still re-
John V. Carey, District Manager
of the Panama City Social Security
Office, explains that these "charter
beneficiaries" include retired work-
ers, wives of some of them. and
widows and dependent parents of
a few workers who died in Janu-
ary 1940. Practically all these
beneficiaries were 65 or over in
1940, and so are 90 or over now.
Carey pointed out that the "char-
ter beneficiaries" may not have
received benefits in each of the
300 months since payments began.
Social Security benefits from the
beginning have been insurance
against loss of earnings because of
retirement in old age. If a bene-
ficiary's earnings are over $1,200
in a year, deductions are made
from the benefits. In earlier years
much smaller amounts of earnings
caused deduction from benefits.
During the first year of monthly
benefit payments, a total of $35
million was paid to Social Security
beneficiaries. Since that beginning,
the program has expanded each
year, Carey stated. Payments
made during 1964 amounted to
about $16 billion. Nearly 20 million
men, women, and children in com-
munities across the nation received
benefits totaling approximately
$1.4 billion in January 1965.
Another significant milestone
for Social Security will occur dur-
ing 1965, Carey stated. Sometime
think of Social Security as a retire-

At the present time about 53

D. & B. Says 111
Business In Gulf
There is a total of 111 businesses
in Gulf County according to statis-
tics released by F. B. Harrison, dis-
trict manager, of the Jacksonville
office of Dun & Bradstreet, Inc.
This total is based on a physical
count of the January, 1965, edi-
tion of the Dun & Bradstreet Ref-
Mr. Harrison noted that in Janu-
ary, Dun & Bradstreet, Inc., sent
requests for financial statements
to almost three million businesses
listed in the Reference Book. These
statements are essential to the
credit reports issued by the busi-
ness information agency. The re-
quests are sent to all businesses re-
gardless of size, from the corner
grocery to the million dollar manu-
Because of the constant flux in
the American business community,
nearly 6,000 changes are now oc-
curing daily in Reference Book
data. Thus the mammoth volume
must be re-issued every two months
to keep up-to-date credit facts in
the hands of manufacturers and
wholesalers. The credit report
which stands behind each entry in
the Reference Book, contains such
information as the firm's current
record, history, ownership ,oper-
ation, financial stability.
