and planning to give you the big surprise of better than ever auto-

The Star marked another birthday two weeks ago and
the occasion slipped by before we noticed it. We are now in our
Twenty-Ninth year of publication. And never an issue has been
missed. To top it all off, every issue has'been in the post office
'on time, despite the occasion of several storms and near storms
that have virtually had this part of the state paralyzed on our nor-
mal press day.
Crowing over a 29th birthday seems sort of bleak in face of
J the birthday celebrated last week when W. C. Forehand reached
'the century mark, but we must doif.
Mr. Forehand had thanks to offer to those who had given him
aid for the success enjoyed during his long career and we must
not forget the faithful supporters we have had through the years
who have made it possible to bring you thenews of Port St. Joe
and Gulf County week after week.
Our-Port St. Joe-Gulf County Chamber of 'Commerce has born
the brunt of some harsh words during the past weeks. We believe
these words' were undeserved and feel that the Chamber is due
some public defense of their position.
We must remember that the Chamber of Commerce is a tool
for the building of Gulf County. This is uppermost in their plans
and their only reason for existence. We believe they have fulfilled
that charge with no exceptions.
We believe their actions have been in the interest of the county
even though some of us wish something else. It is not a matter
Sof right or wrong in the case they involved in. It is a case of which
the citizens of Gulf County would rather have. Chamber of Com-
merce and governmental meetings in the county have been working
v.in the dark long enough. They want to know'your wishes. They
"are all run by reasonable men who desire to do your wishes. When
you don't agree with a decision, let them know in a gentlemanly

tinually ignored. We do not think that the wishes of the people,

Sharks Lose To

Tomorrow With Rickards
The inexperienced Shark football
team took a shellacking at the
hands of the Marianna Bulldogs in
Marianna, last Friday night, 45-0.
The Bulldogs chalked up 20
points in the first quarter, six in
the second and 19 in the third.
The Sharks held the Bulldogs score-
less in the last period.
Despite the heavy scoring ,and
the inability of the Sharks to move
the ball, Bulldog reserves were not
sent in the game until the middle
of the last period.
The Bulldogs picked up 353
yards on the ground to 31 yards
for the Sharks. The Sharks little

Rotary Club-Sponsored Dental
Health Program In Progress
Take Two Months
To Cover County
The Port St. Joe' Rotary Club
sponsored dental health .clinic got
underway for.,thec current, school
year on Wednesday of last week.
The clinic is a State Board of
Health Dental Unit and is being
conducted by Dr. William A. Thom-
ason of the State Board of Health.
The clinic will be in progress for
about two months and will exam-
.ne every child in Gulf County in
he first three grades of school
whose, parents are considered un-
able to pay for such treatment. Ne-
cessary .dental work will be per-
formed free of charge.
Already some 60 children have
been examined and treatment sche-
luled for about 30 of these.
OVER $1,000 SPENT
Since the beginning of the pro-
gram in the early part of last
year, over $1,000 has been spent
by the Rotary Club on the program.
Early last year, a State Board of
Health Unit was provided and
checked and treated all needy chil-
Iren at Washington and Carver
Schools. This past spring, local
dentist, Dr. Robert E. King furnish-
d his services when the club was
unable to secure the dental unit
rom the State Board of Health.
Over 450 fillings and- extractions
'ere made in the project during'
he last school year.
It is estimated that the program
ow underway will cost in the
neighborhood of $350.
The program is financed by the
nuual Rotary Club sponsored
harity Ball, which will be held
his year on December 4.
Cecil Curry is Rotary Club chair-
nan of the project.

Sen. Tapper, representing the
Fifth District, said in his opinion
the ruling of the Supreme Court
was not in accordance with the
Constitution and will upset the bal-
ance of political power now exist-
ing in the Legislature.
"The one-man-one-vote philiso-
phy works fine in theory," con-
tinued the outspoken senator from
Port St. Joe, "but when put into
practice, it just doesn't work that
"But reapportionment is here
and we might as well establish a
fair and adequate means of doing
t,' he said. Tapper declared his
fight against provisions in the pres-
ent state bill was not an effort to
stymie' the Legislature but to
achieve fair representation for all
people in the state.
"I know my knowledge of the
Dade County district would not
qualify me to represent those peo-
ple adequately and I am just as
certain senators from that district
are not qualified to give just rep-
resentation to mine."
Economy and problems differ
greatly in the two districts, he said,
and sufficient representation for
both areas must be established.
Education also is affected indi-
rectly by the apportionment bill.
"There is no reason why a child in
a poorer county should be deprived
of a good education just because
his county does not have the means
to provide it," he said.

gle for reapportionment in the re-
cent special session of the Florida
Legislature and is chairman of the

WE FIND SUPPORT FOR UNITY
We received and unprecedented amount.of comment last
week on our editorial deploring the area publicity we are
bringing on ourselves as a county.
Such comment, all agreeing with us, should serve no-
tice that the rank and file of the people in the county are
tired of this situation too. We feel that-should these com-
mnents be expressed to our civic leaders, our governments,
both city and county, and those who mold our everyday ac-
tivities, then our county will surely get on with progressing.
As we said last week, we have a good county. We have
two fine, hospitable towns in our county. We have some
good people,. as good as you will find anywhere. There
is no reason why we should have anything but good things
to report from our activities.
We havebeen pictured in the past. and some of it is
.deserved like a cartoon that hangs in the office of Dick
Lamberson at the St. Joe Auto Parts. The cartoon pictures
two mules tied together, each trying to reach some green
grass in a different direction. Neither is budging an inch,
so both are consequently starving to death. There is plenty
of green grass for both mules in both directions, if they
would but pull together.
We have a pine tree and sports economy in our county,
sprinkled with a little beach tourism economy. The latter
is growing by leaps and bounds.
This leaves us three sources of income from which to
make our place in the sun. There is room enough for every-
The ironic situation is that if we do not pull in the same
direction, we will each cut the other's throat, so to speak.
It is time for us to realize, as any growing area must,
that it is imperative that we forget petty jealousies, likes
and dislikes and petty bickerings in order to nurture the
goose that will ultimately lay the golden egg.
A BASIC RIGHT
.The battle to save section 14 (b) of the Taft-Hartley Act
-the section which authorizes states to pass Right-to-Work
laws forbidding compulsory union membership as a condition
of employment-has not been lost, even though repeal has
passed the House. Every legitimate effort isbeing made to
save this essential protection of the worker in the Senate.
At the same time, if 14(b) is repealed and workers can
be forced to join and pay dues to a union or join the hungry
ranks of the unemployed, Congress should at the very least
.add another stipulation to the law. This has to do with a
-tightening up of union certification procedures. That should
only be done through secret elections conducted by the
National Labor Relations Board. Certification which is
,gained through the signatures of workers on cards is totally
satisfactory. Investigations have shown that, at times,
signatures are forged or fictitious or have been obtained
Through fraud, misrepresentation, coercion or other such
What is at stake here is the Right-to-Vote. As the Mem-
phis Press-Scimitar puts it, "If a contract is to bind every
Semploye to pay union dues whether he likes it or not, is it
too much to ask for a secret ballot to make sure the union
at least has majority support?"
There is nothing antiunion in this. It would make it ac-
curately and truly known whether any group of workers
w Want or do not want union representation. This'is, beyond
cavil, a basic right, and so is the right of choice to join or
HOW TO KEEP OUT OF TROUBLE
If children were taught in the home by their parents
and in the schools and Sunday schools by their teachers, one
simple little rule of action, think of the sorrow and suffering
it would save, not to mention the countless millions of dollars.
This rule of action wouldn't require any new laws, it
wouldn't cost a dime of taxpayers money, and it would re-
duce the cost of law enforcement and court trials. Respect
for the rule would eventually become automatic with most
children as they, grew up.
There wouldn't be so many news reports of murder, rob-
bery, kidnapping, rape, purse snatching, automobile stealing,
And what is the rule of action that would reduce our
vicious crime record, if it became part of the thinking of
children when it was taught to them daily by their parents
and schools, along with suitable illustrations of what it

people's property." It's that simple to keep out of trouble.

TOO LATE TO
By Russell Kay
I haven't had anything to say
about radio and television commer-
cials for a while but I have been
watching them and the more I
watch the madder I get.
In my book the darn things con-
tinue to insult my intelligence and
lower my respect for whoever is
responsible for them. Maybe some
folks believe 'em and rush out to
buy this .or that otherwise they
wouldn't continue to keep pouring
out such drivel.
Take the idiotic 'detergent com-
mercial that has your washing
machine' bounding up in the air
like a rocket or something while
that long suffering announcer
screams, "It makes your washer
clean like it was 10 feet tall."
Who the hell wants to climb on a
shaky stepladder to reach a beserk
washer and what has 10 feet tall
got to do with washing clothes.
And then there is the screwy
commercial about the product that
gets you out o fthe kitchen fast.
Some poor woman is cleaning her
sink and accidentally pours a cer-
tain leaner in the think. Whoops,
she is swept off her feet and flies
through the air with the greatest
of ease. If she doesn't die of heart
failure I miss my guess.
And the guy that gallops through
'the countryside on the white horse
jabbing his lance into whoever he
meets. The poor sap doesn't even
stop for a red light, why should he?
He can jab it with his toad stabber
and turn it white.
Then there is Arlene Francis and
Joseph Cotton both parroting ex-
actly the same lines about their ter-
rible headaches and how they take
a certain product and can turn
somersaults or walk down stairs
on their hands because their head-
ache has gone with the wind.
And the faithful dog who walks
10 miles in the broiling sun to
bring his master a package of cig-
arettes and all the guy has to do is
add a little love.
And the poor woman who hesi-
tates and stammers and stutters as
she tells you how she suffers from
arthritis and can hardly move her
fingers until she takes a certain
remedy then she can wiggle every-
thing from her ears to her toes and
it doesn't .hurt a bit.
And the dumb children who re-
fuse to brush their teeth. What is
a poor mother to do, she tried to
obey the commercial laws, but the
rest of the family don't give a
continental damn about their teeth,
so she says, we brush every chance
we get with you know what and
thanks for the check mister. I'll be
back tomorrow to scare your cus-
tomers with warning about what
will happen if they don't sprain
their ankles rushing to the drug
store for this or that remedy.
They kid Los Angeles about air
pollution, but brother it is a na-
tional affliction and it is getting
worse. Personally I think I would
prefer smog, it may choke you but
it won't gag you.

WILLIAMS FAMILY REUNION
AT OLD GALILEE SATURDAY
Graceville--The first member of
the Williams family to hold a Cab-
inet post will head a host of dis-
tinguished family members and
friends to the 62nd annual Wil-
liams Reunion at the famed old
Galilee Church near here, Saturday.
State Treasurer Broward Wil-
liams, who has served in many
capacities of the Reunion, headed
the committee this year that raised
the money to replace the old tab-
ernacle with a modern steel struc-
Under the spreading live oaks
around the Methodist church that
was founded by a Williams, the
family will gather from many
states and many.walks of life.
A traditional one-hour program
will begin at 11 a. m., followed by
"dinner on the ground," the noon-
time highlight of the festive day.
The 250-foot-long table, 5 feet
wide will be piled with tons of food
prepared by some of the best cooks
in the Florida Panhandle.
This famed reunion draws politi-
cal bigwigs from Washington to
Tallahassee. Congressman Bob
Sikes estimated a few years ago
that he had 10,000 Williamses in
his First District.
Judge Alto Adams, a member of
the clan and former Chief Justice
of the Florida Supreme Court, will
be the speaker this year. As all
other speakers are charged to do,
he will speak on the Williams fam-
So as the sun comes up on Satur-
day morning, Oct 2 ,it will again be
their day at Galilee.

Road Bond Issue
Last Monday night at their regu-
lar meeting at the Grill in Apalach-
icola of the Lions Club, there were
39 in attendance, including several
members of the Carrabelle Lions
Club and Max Kilbourn of Port St.
Joe ,who arranged the program for
Lion Bill Spikes.
The speaker, P. W. "Bill" Eckey,
Assistant State Highway Engineer
of planning, chose as his topic,
Governor Burns "All Florida Road
Improvement Program." His full
knowledge of the subject made a
very interesting speech on a sub-
ject that few of our citizens know
about. For instance, Franklin Coun-
ty ,as well as Gulf, Liberty, Cal-
houn and Wakulla, will not have
any four-lane projects. However,
when the bond program is activat-
ed, it will provide $75,000,000 each
year for four years to convert pres-
ently heavily traveled two-lane
roads to four-lanes. This will cause
some forty to forty-three million in
regular primary funds to become
available for budgeting to improve
less heavily traveled two-lane
In response to questions, Mr.
Eckey asked Mr. Kilbourn to com-
ment. Mr. Kilbourne stated that he
could not commit the Road Board.
However, such projects as the re-
alignment and widening of U. S. 98
between Apalachicola and Medart,
with a new bridge at Carrabelle and
similar needed projects in other
counties will move up on the pri-
ority lists. The bridge at Jackson
Bluff, in Liberty County, State
Road 20, in Calhoun County; Fifth
Street in Port St. Joe, and others
will be given careful and construc-
tive consideration, when the addi.
tional funds are available. Mr. Kil-
bourn further urged his fellow
FranklinCounty taxpayers to sup
port the bond amendment, on No-
vember 2nd, for personal selfish
reasons as well as for the con-
tinued growth and progress of all

THE PHYSICIAN: AN
OF THE ATHLETIC TEAM
The medical care of athletes
has been improving with the
years. Team physicians have a
responsibility not only to treat
the injured player in a manner
to get him back into play as
soon as possible, but to protect
him from getting injured. A
careful physical examination and
a consideration of the history co
past illnesses and injuries are
considered necessary. Vision and.
hearing have a great deal to (;.
with the perfect coordination.
necessary in preventing acci-
dents among athletes.
Team physicians can do much
to urge personal cleanliness and
hygiene in the athlete, for it is a
well known fact that athlete's
foot, boils and carbuncles are
common ad disabling in ath-
letic programs. The ideal ar-
rangement for high s c h o o I
athletics is to have a full-time
trainer regularly present in the
athletic area. This person should
be well informed on the pre-
'vention of injuries and illltesses
among athletes and able to take
proper care of such athletes un-
til they, are seen by the team
One of the difficult decisions
a team physician must make is
when to permit an injured play-
er to return to practice. The
coaching staff is anxious to have
the player back with the team,
and the player usually feels this
way too. The team physician's
first concern is the welfare of
the injured athlete and his dan-
ger of being reinjured by re-
turning too soon to the game.
While physicians are not usu-
ally experts on athletic equip-
ment, they do know the anatom-
ic parts to be protected and can
be of valuable help in selecting
the best equipment. The team
physician should play an im-
portant position in the game.

Acres On St. Joseph Peninsula Have Been
E~Kur i 10U CAiN DECIDE THIS
QUESTION, YOU NEED TO KNOW
THE FACTS AND HOW THIS MAY
AFFECT YOUR TAXES AND YOUR
HERE ARE THE FACTS AND A
PROPOSAL AS TO HOW THE QUES-
TION MAY BE SATISFACTORILY
The question is not whether a park or
private' development will be more benefi-
cial to the economy and interest of the
county. Both arie extremely important.
We have the park, consisting of 671 acres
already purchased. The access road is
h under costa ru ion. Tha park is a
fact No one opposes the park-we are
all fur it. But there are no plans whatever
for developing the northern area of the
present site. It will be left in its natural
state, which'is good. But the park as now
constituted, according to the park commit-
tee, has 81/ miles of white sand beach.
Does it need, or could it reasonably use,
an additional 1747 acres with an added 20
miles of water front property? Accord-
ing to the park committee, there would be
14 miles of Gulf frontage and another 14
miles on St. Joseph's Bay. Can we honestly
'say that adding this vast additional acreage
to the present park would cause even one
extra or additional person to visit the park?
EXAMPLE OF ST. ANDREWS
Investigation of St. Andrews State
Park has shown that it has 1022 acres, of
which only 300 acres can be utilized as
camping ground. Nevertheless, only 150
acres have actually been developed, and
there are no immediate plans for further
development. The vast majority of visi-
tors to the park are local people and visi-
tors to the beaches who enjoy the fishing
along the jetties. Unfortunately, we do
not have such an attraction as the jetties.
The point is that the size of the park, if it
is initially adequate, has no effect upon at-
tendance. How many thousands upon
thousands of people could enjoy 671 acres
and 8/2 miles of beach, without being
crowded; or even being near one another?
We feel that the present park area is more
than adequate to provide park facilities to
all of the potential visitors within the fore-
COUNTY TO BENEFIT FROM
On the other hand, how much benefit
would Gulf County and it's people receive
if this large attractive 1747 acre tract was
permitted to be purchased by private enter-
prise for development?
First, the unimproved property would
immediately be placed on the tax assess-
ment roll at a figure approximating its
cost, which we believe, now that the pro-
perty will be accessible by paved road, will
not be less than $750 per acre. (Some 50
surplus acres just south of the park area
was bid in several years ago at a price of
$300: per acre, when this property could
only be reached by boat or jeep). This is
equal, tax wise, to a new industry locating
in our county with taxable assets of $1,-
310,250, and the beautiful part about it is
that we already have it, if we don't forfeit
it and let it go by default.
EXISTING PRIVATE HOLDINGS
DUE TO BE REVALUED
Mention has been made of the approxi-
mately 1500 acres of peninsula land own-
ed by Mr. Ed C. Wright, lying on the sou-
thern half of the peninsula, which has not
been developed, and which is on the tax
roll at a low figure.- We have no control
over Mr. Wright's affairs, nor his land, but
think carefully for a moment. If the land
lying to the north of the park is purchased
at $750 per acre and placed on the tax roll
at such an approximate figure under the
present policy of 100% valuation that Tax
Assessor Sammy Patrick has announced
will be effective in 1966, doesn't it stand
to reason that under the new 100% policy,
Wright's 'land must be assessed on the
same basis as other private property locat-
ed on the peninsula? This means that we
will be collecting practically new taxes on
approximately 3250 acres assessed at a
total value of over $2,400,000. At the pres-
ent millage rate of 51.8 mills, this property
would have brought in $122,880 this year
in taxes to Gulf County, over $50,000 of
which would have gone to the schools for
possible raises in teacher's salaries.
REALISTIC VALUATION WILL
RESULT IN RAPID DEVELOPMENT
Let's look further. The high cost of
the land, with its continuing, tax burden,
will make it necessary that the owners,
Mr. Wright included, develop and dispose
of their holdings without undue delay.
Otherwise, the taxes will eat up their pro-
fit. The present tax burden will, of course,
be lightened by virtue of thh 100% valua-
tion policy, which will put thousands of
homesteads on the taxable rolls. Never-
theless, good business judgment would re-
quire that development of peninsula land
not be delayed. Home owners, becoming
advalorum taxpayers for the first time in
1966, should take note that private develop-
ment outside the park on the peninsula

will result in yearly reduction of their tax-
es, as these, lands develop and more im-
provements are placed on the tax rolls.
THE WHOLE COUNTY WILL BENEFIT
Can we really anticipate that the addi-
tional acreage will be developed, and if so,
what effect would it have on the rest of
the County? Let us look at neighboring
Bay County. After World War II, the
people of Bay County became aware of
the real potential of their beaches. They
advertised and promoted. Today, Bay's
greatest industry is the tourist trade at-
tracted to its fabulous resort area. Mil-
lions upon millions of dollars have been
invested in hotels, motels, courts, amuse-
.ment areas, shopping centers and private
summer homes, all now appearing on the
taxable rolls of that county. Naturally,
it didn't happen overnight, nor will our
beach area blossom overnight, but it paid
off for the far-sighted people of Bay Coun-
ty, and it will just as surely pay off for us,
if we protect what we are indeed fortunate
BEACHES CONTRIBUTED TO BAY
COUNTY'S FAST GROWTH
Look at Destin Beach, 100 miles to
the west of us. It developed even faster
than the Panama City Beaches into a de-
luxe motel area. What happened to Pan-
ama City as a result of this new county
industry? In 1940, Panama City had a
population of 11,610. By ,11950, it had
grown to 25,814. The. no'Ibim., in 1965,
a population of close to*tCA4 The pro-
moters of Panama City v.*i'it to the
beaches for their explosive iwth. And
these Panama City people 'doq( .''go home
in the winter, they are permanent residents.
Between 1950 and 1960, Bay County's pop-
ulation increased from 42,689 to 67,131.
Will property values continue to rise
in Gulf County as a result of the develop-
ment of the beach area? Ask the people
in Panama City. An undeveloped strip ly-
ing between U. S. 98 and the Gulf of' Mex-
ico, in West Panama City Beach, was val-
ued at $2.4 million by the Chairman of the
Planning and Zoning Board of that City.
Private ownership and development of that'
part of St. Joseph's Peninsula not used as'
a park is the greatest industrial potential,
this County could ever have. Did you know
that Mexico Beach property, at this stage
still a relatively small development, is on
the tax rolls of Bay County at 35% of value
at a figure of $1,090,000, representing in-
.vestments of roughly $3,000,000.? Can
Gulf County afford to lose this type of tax
revenue so badly needed by the schools for
operation expenses and increased teachers'
salaries, and by the county commissioners
to keep pace with other progressive coun-
ties? We think not.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS BACK
Your Chamber of Commerce, it's
Board of Directors, and the Committee on
Industrial Development, in particular, are
charged with the responsibility of attract-
ing new industry into the county. This is
the primary purpose of the Chamber. The
members of the Chamber's Board of Direc-
tors, after considering the facts presented
here, agreed that it was their duty to the
members of the Chamber and to the citizens
of the county to take immediate action to
see that Gulf County did not lose by de-
fault the most prized potential it had.
They recognized that it would be difficult
to attract industry to Gulf County unless
we could get the millage lowered substan-
tially from 51.8 mills. They realized that
if the additional 1747 acres were placed
upon the tax roll, our millage would be low-
ered considerably, and local taxpayers, in-
cluding those home owners who will pay
advalorum taxes for the first time next
year, would be greatly benefitted. They
knew that additional taxes could in this
way be raised for schools and county pur-
poses without unduly burdening the indi-
vidual tax payers.
The Board of County Commissioners,
following a public hearing, adopted a Re-
solution by majority vote, also favoring
public ownership of the surplus peninsula
acreage. They shared the feeling of the
Chamber's Board of Directors that we can-
not afford to forfeit the greatest potential
asset our county possesses.
IS THERE A MIDWAY SOLUTION?
Now, what can be done to consolidate
the efforts of both sides of this issue, and
work for a common cause beneficial to our
county-and still satisfy the most adamant
supporters of an enlarged State Park?
While in Tallahassee, we discussed this mat-
ter.at great length with the State Park and
Recreation Planning Board. They said the
Park Service would much prefer that St.
Joseph's Peninsula State Park be located
at the northern tip of the peninsula, if all
of the area was not to be included in the
park. Their reasoning is sound.
As many do not know, the park will
not be free. There will be an admission
fee of probably seventy-five cents, and
there must necessarily be a gate and toll
house. If an access road ran through the
park to the area of private development,
there would be the problem of collecting
tolls. While this is not insurmountable,
and could be handled, it would, none the
less, create somewhat of a problem for the
A PROPOSAL TO PERMIT BOTH PARK
EXPANSION AND PRIVATE
In fairness to. the Park Board, the
local park committees, and those who have
supported the operation, it is respectfully
suggested that all parties get together and
come to an agreed common purpose for
the benefit of our county. The following
proposal is put forward in the hope that it
will provide a meeting ground for all points
1. Petition the State and Federal
Governments to trade the 671 acres as
now described in the park area for a like
number of acres beginning at the ridge line
of St. Joseph's Spit as a northern boundary.
2. Request the State of Florida to
purchase an additional 329 acres on the
':south end of 'said property,, to make a park
area of 1,000 acres, not including the ex-
'treme end of the sand spit.
3. Sell the remainder of the excess
property at public auction.
Now, this will give the Park consider-
ably more than the present 8% miles of
beach front, over 1,000 acres in area (equal
in size to the State's average large park),
an area not crossed by a public road, an
area which will include the site of the old
Spanish, settlement discovered last year,
the saf it we all take so much pleasure
in i.rjnj'd a natural cove on the Gulf
side of~' t.
I am W d:rised that no structures have
been erected by the Park Service on. the
original site,: and clearing work is all that
has been accomplished, due to lack of ac-
cess road; therefore, there should be no
problem there. While there may be other
problems, by a concerted effort of all in-
terested in the Park and private develop-
ment, we can work them out together. I
am ready to go to Tallahassee or Washing-
ton anytime at my own expense for the
purpose of furthering this proposal.
Those of you who favor this proposal,
and want to protect Gulf County's future,
will you please call 227-7161, Port St. Joe,
and let us know your thoughts and ideas.
We do want and need your help.

W. C. Forehand was born on a
farm in Grant County, Indiana. on
September 26, 1965. His father
was Lewis Forehand, the son of a
pioneer who had come from. near
Raleigh, North Carolina, in a cov-
ered wagon about 1823 and located
in this section of Indiana. :
When Mr. Forehand was ,12'ears
old he quit school and went to
work in a general store in'Klokomo
to help the family finances which
were bad during the great "panic"
of 1873. He earned 50c a week at
his first job.
During his early career, Mr.
Forehand was noted as quite a
horse trader (as some in these
parts had already suspected). He
was always scrupulously: honest,
while being a sharp- trader.
Most of Mr. Forehand's life be-
fore coming to ,Gulf County has
been spent in various real estate
and merchandising enterprises. At
one time he abandoned his forte,
that of real estate dealing and went
to Seattle, Washington where he
was promptly chased back to Koko-
mo by the climate and winter wea-
ther. Once again he and his family,
moved to central Washington where
he tried sheep ranching, but soon
moved back to Kokomo.
Only on 'one other occasion did

dealing in real estate and merchan-
dise-iand moved to Wisconsin to

:He has two grandchildren, Mrs.
Florence E\el.n Ewing of Arling-
ton Heielht-. Illinois and William
Cooper Forehand of Seattle, Wash-
ington. He also has seven great-
grandchildren ranging in ages
from eight months to 21 years.
In spite of little schooling, Mr.
Forehand who was largely self-edu-
cated, acquired a great deal of
knowledge. He was at avid reader
and acquired quite a library which
included Ridpath's History of the
world and many other serious
works. He was also a student of the
Bible and was familiar with Bible
history and doctrine. During the
early of his first marriage, he and
,his wife belonged to the "Friends"
church. When they went to live
in Pennville, Pa., there was no
Friends church there and they at-
tended the Methodist Church.
When he came to Highland View,
he joined 'the Methodist Church
here and has been a faithful mem-
ber, participating in its activities,
giving of his time and substance

W. C. Forehand reminisces about the "old days" with David
Carl Gaskin of the Wewahitchka State Bank last Saturday after-
noon. Despite his ripe old age of 100 years, he stood at the micro-
phone for better than a half hour talking to his friends. And he

evening. He may be 100, but he can still get around and do what

\hunts being held in the Apalachi-

are off to a very successful start.
The managed hunts which begin
September 20 have accounted for
three bears after four and one-half

The first bear recorded on the

28 year old hunter from Bay Coun-
ty. The bear was shot on Septem-

Florida Dove Hunters Take to FieldsDIRECT TO BANK FOR DEPOSIT
Saturday for First Phase of Season
Tallahassee-Florida's dove hunt-
ers will take to the field at 12:00
noon Saturday, October 2, when
the first phase of the 1965-66 mi-
gratory dove hunting season opens
statewide, according to W. B. Cope-
land, Chairman, Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
Hunting- will be allowed every
day from 12:00 noon until sunset
through November 7, except in
that portion of Franklin County
known as Alligator Point.
Dove hunters will be allowed a
a bag limit of 12, with a total pos-
session limit of 24. Hunters must
possess valid hunting licenses,
available from all County Judges.
Shotguns must be plugged to three-
shell capacity, and rifles are pro-
hibited for taking migratory birds.
The second phase dove hunting
starts November 20 and continues
through December' 5. The third
season opens December 18 and
closes January 3.
Copeland said, "There will be
strict patrolling on early dove and
marsh-hen shooting by both State
and Federal law enforcement offi-
cers to see that all regulations are
enforced. We urge all hunters to
abide by all hunting regulations
and to hunt safely at all times.
Hunters should remember that
when they hunt on the lands of
another person, they are guests.
Respect the owner's rights and
property. Good manners keep down
posters which keep you out."
Twenty-Two Public Dove Fields
Set Up To Serve Hunting Public
Tallahassee Florida hunters
will have an opportunity to hunt
dove on twenty-two public dove
fields managed by the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission dur-
ing the 1965-66 hunting season. The
fields are located in sixteen coun-
ties and will require a $2.00 daily
hunting permit with the exception
of fields in the Third Conservation
District, according to W. B. Cope-
land, chairman, Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
Public dove fields are located in
Polk, Highlands, Charlotte, Duval,
Suwannee, Franklin, Jackson, Bay,
Gadsden, Palm Beach, Indian River,
Broward, Dade, Collier, Orange and
Seminole counties. Other public
dove fields are located on the Eg-
lin Military Reservation in Oka-
loosa, Santa Rose and Walton coun-
ties and in the Apalachicola Na-
tional Forest in Leon, Wakulla and
Public dove fields in the Third
Conservation District will require a
regular $5.00 public hunting per-
mit except for the field located in
Franklin County which will require
a special $3.00 seasonal permit..
The fields located on the Eglin
Military Reservation require a $1.00
daily permit. The dove fields lo-
cated in the Apalachicola National
Forest require no special permit.
In addition to dove field permits
all hunters must possess valid hunt-
ing licenses and abide by both
statewide hunting regulations and
special dove field rules. Dove field
permits, special regulations and in-
formation may be obtained at the
fields or at any of the five Com-
mission regional offices at Panama
City, Lake City, Ocala, Lakeland
and West Palm Beach.
According to Copeland, the pro-
gram of public dove hunting fields
was originated several years ago
as an experimental operation and
serve a two-fold purpose. They pro-
vide additional public shooting
grounds for the hunter and a prov-
ing ground for managed public
hunting on small areas. Over the
past seasons, the dove field pro-
gram has proven to be highly suc-
cessful and popular with the hunt-
ers. It is hoped that more private
landowners may follow this exam-
ple and open their lands for a
similar controlled hunt in the fu-

Post Office, Dixon said.
The third bear recorded was a
180 pound male bagged on the
Apalachicola hunt by H. G. Starl-
ing of Panama City. Starling col-
lected his trophy on the first day
of the second special hunt. On Sep-
tember 24, hunters in the Apalachi-
cola area missed an opportunity to
raise the total when one hunter
shot at but missed the fourth bear.
The special bear hunts will con-

The Florida Forest Service is
seeking 250 high school dropouts
for 26 weeks of in-the-job training
under the federally-financed Neigh-
borhood Youth Corps program.
According to State Forester C.
H. Coulter, the program will in-
clude six hours a week of adult
education classes and 32 hours of
work-and-training with the forest
service. Age limits are 16-21. En-
rollees must be a dropout for at
least six months before becoming
eligible. Also, he or she should be
from a low-income family. It's ex-
pected that 10 women will be hired
in the program.
Trainees will be taught clerical
work, carpentry, painting, opera-
tion of heavy equipment, aircraft
maintenance, forest fire fighting,
and forest management techniques.
They will receive $1.25 per hour.
Those who qualify will be consid-
ered for regular positions as open-
Persons interested in joining the
program should contact their local
state employment office.
The Florida Forest Service re-
cently completed a summer pro-
gram employing 400 in-school
youngsters. The new program will
include more vocational training.
It's expected that trainees will
receive their six hours of weekly
classroom instruction from county
The Florida Board of Forestry
has applied for $285,000 in federal
funds to finance the winter pro-
gram. The state proposes to match
this with in-kind services equal to
10% of the cost of the program.
GREAT LIPE. Say, is this any way to run a household? You bet
it is... in a Medallion home. While you're playing with the
kids or gardening, shopping, or meeting Dad for lunch, your
Medallion home is doing things for you.
There could be a roast in the oven, dishes in the dishwasher,
clothes in the dryer while the refrigerator is defrosting itself.
When you go in, the house has kept a comfortable temperature.
It only happens in a Medallion home. Live electrically. Enjoy life!
AND REMEMBER... ONE BILL LIVING
IS LOWWR IN COST-HIGHER IN VALUE
It is more economical to go all-electric than to have a combina-
tion of services... when you use more of today's modern, labor-
saving electric servants, your average cost per unit of electricity
goes down. Why add another energy source and pay higher
rates for both?

Tonight at 8:00 Mr. Otis Pyle

the first local preview of the 1965
Fords. At this party Mr. Pyle will
present the seniors with $100 for

Popular Pamphlet Again
Because of a wide public interest
and demand for the free educa-
tional pamphlet, "Things You
Should Understand If You Want a
Cancer Examination," the Florida
Disvision of the American Cancer
Society is again offering without
cost a second printing of this in-
formative piece of literature.
The pamphlet emphasizes how
early detection of cancer and
prompt, proper treatment of cer-
tain types of the disease can help
save many lives that might other-
wise be lost.
Among types of cancer discussed
in the pamphlet are: cancer of the
breast, prostate, cancer in males,
cancer of female genital organs;
cancer of the skin, nose, mouth,
throat, and rectum. It also lists
"Cancer's 7 'Danger Signals" for
quick reference to certain symp-
toms that might be noticed in the
The pamphlet has been approv-
ed by the Florida Cancer Council,
Florida Medical Association and the
Florida State Board of Health.
It is the consensus of many prom-
inent specialists on cancer that this
pamphlet, if read and referred to
by every citizen in Florida, could
provide a source of information
which could help retard the rising
cancer death rate in Florida. Last
year, cancer was the cause of
death of 9,668 Floridians of all

Navy lieutenant commander, who
recently was called from duty as
flight surgeon at Cecil Field Naval

come an astronaut in training at
NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center

Dr. Kerwin, in accepting the as-
signment to head the fight against
tuberculosis and other respiratory
diseases, said that as a practicing
Navy doctor he has had the oppo-
tunity to diagnose and treat some
cases of tuberculosis.
"TB remains a difficult problem
today," he said, "although tremen-
dous progress has been made in the
past fifty or so years, both in diag-
nosis and treatment. Its cure, its
prevention, and its eventual eradi-
cation are possible only through
generous public support of a con-
tinuing first-class scientific effort.
"The National Tuberculosis Asso-
ciation and its affiliated associ-
ations represent such an effort.
Tho annual Christmas Seal C2m-
paign both symbolizes this effort
and makes it possible. If I can in
any way, however small, contribute
to its success, I am fortunate and
