Dean-led Band Makes Its
Last Football Appearance
Bandmaster Herman Dean made his "swan song"
appearance last Friday night at the half-fVne cere-
monies during the Shark-Apalachicola -football
Dean is retiring at the end of the present school
year after 12 years of teaching band .fiusic in
Port St. Joe High.
The appearance of the band Friday night was
Dean's last appearance in a marching presenta-
tion in a school function.
In his 12 years here the band has grown from
13 members to the present 75 members. The band
has averaged 75 or so members since the first year
,of Dean with the local school and at one time
climbed to 92 members.
In addition to membership, the band has made
great strides in musicianship during Dean's tenure.
S.,At least ten of the years fince Dean has led the

band program the local school has rated "Superior"
in district band contests.
Dean modestly lays the credit for the band's
'progress during these 12 years to the interest and
financial backing of the Band Parent organization
and the Gulf County School Board in furnishing
the necessary materials with which to build a first-
class band. Dean said that when he came here, the
band had nothing except the 13-member nucleus
and the present aggregation hat been built from

You just haven't lived until you chaperone a high school dance.
It fell our lot to perform this task Saturday night .i. until
midnight. And we can testify to the fact that the physical fitness
program at the High School is working. .The kids are in great shape.
This was evident Saturday as every kid in the house was going strong
until the dance was over. Perpetual motion in the flesh. We were
pooped to the gills when the affair was over, and we didn't dance a

for want of a more descriptive word. But the kids seemed to think
it was a concerto or something.
I personally couldn't hear myself think and the few conversa-
tions we tried to enter into with the faculty member present,
Temple Watson, had to be of the shouting into the ear variety.
But while the music (?) was playing(?) those kids who were "sitting
this one out" seemed to be carrying on normal conversations with

be an expert on such things, we still can't understand what makes

There is a bet on for the Florida-FSU game this Saturday .. .
a bet that is destined to affect everyone in town.
Blake Thomason arid Walter Dodson have challenged the faith

The bet is that the winners will have provided for them a bag of
oysters which the losers will shell for the winners to eat at a
location to be picked by the winners which in all probability
will be downtown at an hour when all can see.
Although we hate to take sides, we would like to be on the side
of Blake and Walter.
We went snapper fishing Saturday with Captain George Holland
of Mexico Beach in his charter boat, Jep II.
S Our Long Avenue Baptist men's Sunday School class went, of
which Capt. George is a member naturally. Our companions were
Bill Barlow, Chuck Marshall, Wayne Gay, B. A. Collier, Bill Norris,

Ford, was also along. While the age limit in our class is 35, Mr.
Ford begged so to be allowed to go that we had to let him after.

His wife told us the next day that his condition on arriving home
would stall off any claims at being any younger than he actually is.
And George put us on top of the fish. We came home with 227
snappers, and 37 grouper, sole and king mackerel.

County school system. In the past
these funds have been divided
equally between these two bodies
with each receiving a little over
$115,000 per year.

no matter what the odds.
Friday, the Sharks put the scare
of the season into the Apalachicola
team, coming the closest they have
been all season to victory. It was
by far the best effort of the local
eleven during the year.
The first period saw the Sharks
hold the mighty Apalachicola to a
big flat goose-egg while threatening
to score on the Chapman squad.
After an exchange of the football
during the beginning of the game,
the Sharks held the famous Apa-
lachicola running attack to four
downs on the Sharks' own 25 yard
line. The Sharks then went into a
shotgun offense for the first time
this season and moved the ball
down to Apalachicola's 33 yard line
before having to give up the ball.
The passing of Jerry Nichols and
Ricky Lovett and the running of
Nichols and Larry Branch put the
Sharks in a threatening position
time after time during the night,
but a costly error made the Sharks
cough up the ball in all but one
Both teams scored in the second
period and ended the half with
Apalachicola having a one-point
lead, 7-6. The Chapman crew scored
first, with 7:23 left in the second

Are YOU Looking for
of CHRIST'S Choice
Many honest and sincere people have never thought
that Christ might have a choice in religion, so often
do they hear the statement: "Attend the church
of YOUR choice." Yet Paul said, "Wherefore also
we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to
be well-pleasing to HIM." II Corinthians 5:9 (A.S.V.)
Aren't we more interested in complying with Christ's
choice than our own?
The Lord does have a choice and the church of
Christ's choice is found in the New Testament. Jesus
said, "Upon this rock I will build my church." Mat-
thew 16:18. It was established in Jerusalem in the
year A. D. 33 through preaching of Christ's Gospel.
Acts 2. No man ever had authority to build another
Christ chose to call the churchh by his own name.
For this reason Paul said, "The churches of Christ
salute you." Romans 16:16.
Christ Chose to command men to:
Believe "He that believeth and is baptized shall
be saved. "Mark 16:16.
Repent God ... commandeth all men everywhere
to repent. Acts 17:30.
Confess Christ-Whosoever shall confess that Jesus
is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in
God. 1 John 4:15.
Be Baptized-He commandeth them to be baptized
in the name of the Lord. Acts 10:48.
The church of Christ's choice still urges men to
obey those commands Christ chose to instruct
men to worship in this way:
Lord's Supper-Acts 20:7. "Upon the first day of
the week when the disciples came together to break
Preach-II Tim. 4:2, "Preach the word; be instant
in season, out of season."
Pray-Acts 2:42, "They continued steadfastly .
Sing-Eph. 5; 19:20, "Singing and making melody
in your heart to the Lord."
Give--I Cor. 16:2. "Upon the first day of the week
let every one of you lay by him in store as the Lord
has prospered him."

Covering plants during a hard
freeze is not very effective unless
you can prevent the icy wind from
coming in contact with the plant.
During a cold, windy night, a
light bulb under an airtight cover
may give a small plant the same
protection as a greenhouse. Oil
heaters can be used to warm larger
plants covered by giant-size sheets
of builder's plastic.
On an icy night heat is vital and
not smoke, in spite of a popular
misconception. So, it is a waste of
time burning a pile of leaves to
smoke up the neighborhood unless
you have devised a way to produce:
more heat than smoke.
The first line of defense in guard-
ing against cold injury is to plant
only those trees and shrubs that
are completely hardy in your lo-
cality. This doesn't mean that you
should not grow tender plants but
such plants should not be the
framework of the garden.
The second line of defense
against cold injury is to have plant
tissue as fully mature as possible
when freezing temperatures occur.

to produce dormancy in plants
ahead of every freeze, then shout it

Carl F. Muller
Farm Forester -'
If you have any longleaf pines,
you have probably noticed that the
needles are turning brown and fall-
ing off the trees in large numbers.
Don't panic; this is the natural
shedding process. But if the trunks
of your trees have resin running
out holes in the bark, you had bet-
ter' check: for pine beetles. We all
know that the hardwood or de-
ciduous trees shed all their leaves
every fall and produce a new set
of leaves in the spring. The pines
or evergreens do not db this as
their name implies. However, this
does not mean that they do not
shed their needles at all. They do,
but in a different manner.',
Unlike the deciduous trees, the
needles on pine tres usually live
about two years. before falling off
the trees. In most instances, the
majority of the needles fall off
early in the third year. Since most
of the needles develop in the pe-
riod from March to August, it is
only logical that most of them will
fall off in October and November.
The needles that are turning brown
and falling off your pines now
were formed some time between
March and August of 1963. Al-
though the bulk of the needles are
formed during the growing season
(spring and summer), some needles
are being formed during all months
of the year. As a result of this, we
can see that it is only natural for
a large percentage of the needles
to fall off in autumn.
There are other factors that in-
fluence the amount of needle fall.
The weather conditions have a

the timing of needle fall. If it is target of vigorous corrective pro-

STATE CABINET APPROVES
PARK SITE PURCHASE
This past week the State Cabinet
of Florida, sitting as the Outdoor
Recreational and Development
Council, approved the purchase of
a 73-acre addition to the Washing-
ton Oaks State Park in Flagler
The acquisition of this property
is the first purchase in a list of
nine priority projects approved in
the master plan of recreational de-
velopment for the State of Florida.
The Washington Oaks area is a
virtually undeveloped tract of land,
lying between the present State
Park and the Intracoastal Water-
way near Flagler Beach. It offers
various sports activities: swimming,
boating and other aquatic sports,
camping, picnicking and fishing.
There are still eight other areas
containing more than 18 thousand
acres, under consideration by the
Outdoor Recreational Development
Council. The Council is continuing
its investigation and evaluation of
all other areas and projects which
may have equal merit.
It is not only the desire of each
Floridian, but it is imperative that

Dixon announced that the form-
ats of the income questionnaires
have been completely revised this
year, retaining only the essential
items for completion. The separate
forms, previously used for veter-
ans and widows in receipt of pen-
sions under the current law, have
been combined into a single one.
Dixon further said that the in-
struction sheet for the completion
and return of the income question-
naires have been eliminated and
the individual instructions now ap-
pear on one side of the question-
naire cards. In this manner, Dixon
said, each recipient will receive
only instructions that pertain to
the particular form received.
Dixon warns all veterans, wid-
ows and dependent parents that
these cards must be returned
promptly, and he further urges the
recipients of these cards to seek

HOLD WHAT YOU'VE GOT
Some elderly people have already suffered-financially
and perhaps physically--because they cancelled private
health and accident insurance almost as soon as they heard
the Medicare bill was passed. But the fact is Medicare bene-
fits do not begin until July 1, 1966. Even then, many people
"over-65" will still have need for some private insurance
coverage. Official information on Medicare, put out by the
U. S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare in its
leaflet "Health Insurance for the Aged," notes that while
government programs "will pay a large part of the cost of
health care for most older people they do not pay the
Anticipating that some would cancel their policies on
the assumption that they no longer needed them, Connecti-
cut's insurance commissioner, Wm. R. Cotter, has requested
private companies in his state to check back with anyone
who cancels an "over-65" policy to make sure he isn't making
the same mistake. As for after Medicare actually is in effect.
several major private insurance companies have announced
they will offer policies for those 65 and older to take care
of those insurance needs which the government program will
With all the fanfare and hoopla which accompanied its
passage and signing, we're not surprised that many folks got
the idea they had no more need for private insurance from
the moment the President signed the Medicare bill. So we
offer this reminder to all our elderly friends and neighbors-
hold on to what you've got until that bill actually goes into
effect, and then make sure you'll have what you need.
DISQUALIFY THE POOR
One of the big issues in Washington these days is
whether or not "poor" people should have a part in setting
policy in the "war on poverty," or if they should be given
jobs at "the neighborhood level" carrying out orders of Wash-
ington bureaucrats or local politicians. This, we agree, is a
tough problem. Somehow, it just doesn't seem right to set
some poverty-stricken fellow down as a member of the plan-
ning board alongside a bureaucrat who is drawing $18,000
to $30,000 a year-unless you pay him something. Yet, if
you pay him even a fraction of the salary of his bureaucrat
fellow board members, suddenly he "ain't poor no more" and,
theoretically, is disqualified.
If the poor fellow sits with the board at little or no pay,
and doesn't get to say anything, or if the others pay his
comments no mind, then sooner or later it will dawn on him
and the impoverished citizens he supposedly represents that
he's there just for show. On the other hand, if he makes
suggestions which are adopted by the high-priced officials
then the question will eventually arise as to why he shouldn't
be in charge.
Similar problems are certain if a few impoverished in-
dividuals are given anti-poverty jobs at the neighborhood'
level. From the moment they receive their first pay-check
those fellows will no longer be in the poverty class and other
down-and-outers not lucky enough to get on the anti-poverty
payroll will be aware of the fact. Anyone who thinks this
will inspire impoverished onlookers to go out and look for
real working-type jobs had better enroll in a correspondence
course on human nature.
One side fears that unless the poor set policy, political
bigwigs will exploit the program and the funds to further
their own political ambitions. The other side contends that
if the poor set policy, the program will be taken over by dis-
sident political factions and opportunists who claim to speak
for the poor. And Solomon himself would have to admit they
are both right.
If the whole program can't be cancelled, what about
converting all the funds into small bills, loading the money
into crop-duster airplanes, and shoveling it out over poverty-
stricken areas? Such a duringg" would eradicate some pov-
erty at least.

Most popular of the Advent cus-
toms handed down to us is the Ad-
vent Wreath. Made of evergreens,
bound to a circle of wire or sturo-
foam. German in origin, it was
taken, so we are told, from the
pagan fire wheel. The wreath rep-
resents the cycle of thousands of
years from Adam to Christ during
which the world awaited the com-
ing of the Redeemer. It also repre-
sents the cycle of years since then
that we have been awaiting His
second and final coming in glory.
It bears four candles, equally
spaced, three purple ones to be
lighted on three Sundays and a
rose-colored one for "Gaudete," or
the joyful Sunday in Advent. Four

saved by Thy help from the dang-
ers that threaten us because of our
sins. Who livest and reignest for
ever and ever.
During the first week one candle
is left burning during the evening
meal, at prayers or at bedtime.
Two candles are lighted on the
second Sunday and allowed to burn
as before. The prayer for the,week
Father: Let us pray. 0 Lord, stir
up our hearts that we may prepare
for Thy only begotten Son, that
through His coming we may be
made worthy to serve Thee with
pure souls. Through the same
Christ our Lord.
Three candles, including the rose
candle, are lighted on Gaudete, the
third Sunday, and during that
week. The following prayer is said:
Father: Let us pray. We humbly
beg Thee, 0 Lord, to listen to our
prayers; and by the grace of Thy
coming bring light into our dark-
ened minds. Who livest and reign-
est for ever and ever.
All four candles are lighted on
the fourth Sunday and allowed to
burn as before. The prayer said
the fourth week is:
Father: Let us pray. Stir up Thy
might, we pray Thee, 0 Lord, and
come; rescue us through Thy great
strength so that salvation which
has been hindered by our sins, may
be hastened by the grace of Thy
Gentle, mercy. Who livest and
reignest for ever and ever.

and ribbon would be changed to
white or silver, evergreens are re-

mas balls added to decorate the
wreath. It can be used as part of

If someone were to ask the

are fattening, he would have to
give her a very peculiar answer.
At least, it might seem peculiar,
at first glance.
He would tell the lady that
all foods are fattening, and no
foods are fattening, and she
would probably think that he was
trying to be funny. And this busi-
ness of fattening is anything but

What it comes down to is
that the diet as a whole is what
is fattening, or slimming, or
maintaining, according to the
amount of food taken in the
total diet and the amount of
energy you expend.
Neither extreme is to be re-
commended. Each good food has
its contribution to make. It is
folly to omit basic foods like
meat, eggs, fish, cheese, butter,
milk, cream, poultry, whole
grains or enriched cereals, vege-
tables and fruits from your,diet,
or cut them too low for good
Find A Combination
The idea is to find a combina-
tion that will maintain your
weight, and still keep all the
four food groups that were de- 4
scribed here last week in proper
balance. Then, neither your foods
nor your diet will be fattening,
and you can enjoy good eating,
plus the benefits of a nice figure,
clothes that fit in sizes easy to :
buy, feet that carry your normal
weight without complaining, and
a general feeling of being right
with your nutrition and your
health, and the world in general.
