County Completes Purchase
Of New Courthouse Location
Note for Balance
The County Commission made
arrangements Tuesday night to
purchase the new Courthouse site
on Fifth Street from the St. Joseph
Land and Development Company.
At the last meeting of the Board
a motion was made and approved
to purchase a 43 acre site near the
edge; of the city limits on Fifth
Street just East of Knowles Ave-
nue lor a price of $84,000.'
At this time it was pointed out
that the County had only $65,000
in the Capital Outlay Fund, which
could be used for land purchase.
Since last meeting County Attor-
ney William J. Rish and Clerk
George Y. Core have made a trip
to Tallahassee to see the Attorney
General about the legality of the
county paying part of the purchase
price of the land and giving a rev-
enue certificate for the balance.
Rish and Core reported to the
Commission Tuesday that this
could be done.
Clerk Core reminded the Board
that only $55,072.59 of the Capital
Outlay Fund was on hand in cash.
The remainder had been loaned to
the Road Department to purchase
some new equipment and will not
be repaid until January 1, 1966.
Commissioner J am es Horton
moved that the county make pay-
ment of $55,072.59 to the St. Jos-
ept Land and Development Com-
pany and give a non-interest bear-
i4g-revenue-certificate against race
track revenues in the amount of
$28,927.41 for payment of the pro-
perty, provided a deed could be re-
ceived on the partial cash payment.
Horton's motion was seconded by
T. D. Whitfield, with Horton, Whit-
field and the Chairman, James Mc-
Daniell voting for the motion.
Commissioners Kennedy and
Graham voted against the motion.
They stated they were casting their
"no" vote because they thought the
price of the land was too high.
Attorney Rish said that he would
spend Wednesday completing the
transaction as soon as title insur-
ance could be arranged for on the
property. Clerk Core was authoriz-
ed to write the check as soon as
Rish's work was completed.

U S 98 Declined
Tallahassee Legislators and
chamber of commerce presidents
of Florid .'s Panhandle counties
asked Gov. Haydon Burns to in-

"My program is already printed;
the bill has been drafted; and it's

He said this was being done in
the southern part'of the Panhandle
to aid traffic and to keep a paral-

from U. S. 90 as possible.
Burns' four-laning program was
designed to help pump more tour-

Burns said normally the state
builds some 240 miles of four-lan-

Taking 1,050 miles off the roads

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR
Tallahassee-If you've been won-
dering about how to care for your
electric blanket here's the answer.
First of all, don't have it dry-
cleaned. Don't machine wash it.
Home economists with the Flor-
ida Agricultural Extension Service
say that in recent testing conluct-
ed by Consumers' Research Inc.,
the non-profit testing organization
in Washington, N. J., results show-
ed that electric blankets should
never be dry-cleaned or machine
washed-not matter what claims
the manufacturer makes to the
Damage can come from excessive
twisting and squeezing. Dry clean-
ing fluids may attack the insula-
tion that covers the wiring. The
tumbling action of a washing ma-
chine can cause a break in the wir-
ing that runs through the blanket.
Researchers and engineers rec-
ommend electric blankets be wash-
ed only when absolutely necessary
and then only by hand. If washed

two Year Spanish Course For Students
Knowledge of a language other
than English is becoming more and
more an essential part of th eedu-
cation of American leaders. Each
student should consider the study
of a modern foreign language for
its contribution to his liberal edu-
cation as wel las for its practical
Many colleges, because of chang-
ed-conditions and national ::eeds,
are instituting, restoring, or rais-
ing requirements in foreign la
guage, not only for admissions,
but also for graduation. They are
now thinking in terms of foreign
language proficiency, rather than
the units of credit earned or num-
ber of years the language has been
studied. For entrance purposes,
some college language departments
prepare and administer their own
tests, while others make use of
achievement tests of the College
Entrance Examination Board. A
student desiring to attend a par-
ticular college should secure infor-
mation concerning the foreign lan-
guage entrance and graduation re-
quirements of that college.
Achievement in a foreign lan-
guage will be in proportion to the
time and effort devoted to it. The
secondary school foreign language
course should be at least four years
in length, for adequate develop-
ment of skills. Less than this can
hardly be expected to produce a
high level of proficiency.
Spanish is the only foreign lan-

Spring Spruce Up
Can Help You
Tallahassee You know what
spring cleaning can do for a house.
A spring spruce-up can do as much
for you, says Miss Elizabeth Dick-

Look at yourself in a well-lighted
mirror. What do you see? If you
see winter-weary skin, dull, lack-
lustre hair, a tired expression on
your face; extra pounds, and stoop-
ed shoulders, a "new look" for
spring is in order.
Begin your campaign with a few
simple exercises each day. Choose
one that will do the most for you-
one that whittles inches off the
waist, smooths the hipline, or helps
straighten your back.
Give more care and cleansing to
your skin. Have your--hair cut
shorter and get a permanent if you
Make a point of eating better
balanced meals. Include more fresh
vegetables and fruits and milk,
less sweets and starches.
To lift your mental outlook, read
a book on a subject entirely new
to you. Plan a vacation for your
family, a trip of one day or longer
that everyone will enjoy.
Get out and do some gardening.
It will take out the kinks, both
physically and mentally.

guage which is taught in Port St.
Joe High School. Prior to 1959,
Spanish was taught when a suffi-
cient number of students expressed
interest in studying it. Since that
time students havehad the oppor-
tunity to study two years of Span-
ish during their high school career.
In 1959 there was one class in
Spanish I, with Spanish II being
added to the curriculum the fol-
lowing year. Enrollment in Spanish
classes has increased each year,
and at present, there are two
classes in Spanish I and one class
in Spanish II. Spanish III will be
added when a sufficient number of
students indicate a desire for it,
and the ultimate aim is for a 4-
year sequence. Some students' in
grades 7 and 8 have one semester
of Spanish as part of the enrich-
Spanish plays an important role
in the curriculum not only for the
pre-college students, but also for
those who will complete their for-
mal education in high school. With
both types of students in mind,
the objectives of the foreign lan-
guage program are as follows:
1. To provide a broadening edu-
cational experience that will con-
tribute to the liberal education of
2. To provide a progressive ex-
perience in acquiring a practical
knowledge for exchanging ideas in
a second language.
3. To develop in students an in-
terest in the geography, history, so-
cial life, literature and culture of
countries other than their own.
4. To develop an awareness of
which are different, as well as
the aspects of a foreign culture
those which resemble their own,
and in so doing, to' better under-
stand American culture.
The widespread acceptance of
speaking proficiency as the pri-
mary goal of foreign language in-
struction has popularized the audio-
lingual approach to learning a sec-
ond language. Students listen to
recordings and tapes by native
speakers and imitate what they
Students at Port St. Joe High
School have record players and
tape recorders available for class-
room use. However, the modern
foreign language classroom should
be equipped with a language lab-
oratory which is an installation
equipped with tools a student needs
for study and practice, but to which
most students could not have ac-
cess individually. In the most ver-
satile type laboratory, there are in-
dividual student booths equipped
with microphones, earphones, and
a dual-channel recorder. Students
may listen to a lesson, respond,
and then hear his own response.
An entire class may work together
or a student may work individually
at his own pace.
The teacher has a control con-
sole with program sources and a
master distribution panel from
which she can monitor a student
without his knowledge, hear the
master tape and a student's re-
sponse, talk individually with any
student, and record a student's re-
sponse on a central tape recorder
without his knowledge.
To the study of a language, the
laboratory is comparable to a li-
brary in the study of such subjects
as English and history. It does not
teach, and thus, does not take the
place of the teacher. It is an exten-
sion of the classroom and is inte-
grated with class work. Actually it
increases rather than lessens the
work of the teacher, but it helps
the teacher to teach, and will im-
prove the effectiveness of his teach-
