Sharks Win Second Annual
Gulf Coast Cage Tournament
Belin Out Due
Port St. Joe's Eddie McFarland
and David Macomber sank five
free throws under tremendous
pressure Saturday night, in an ov-
ertime period to nip Quincy's Ti
gers, 64-63 and take their second
i-consecutive championship of the
Gulf Coast Conference.
David Macomber led the Sharks
flipping in 29 points during the
game even though he sat out parl
of the second, all of the third and
most of the fourth periods witt
four fouls to his credit.
The Sharks rolled up a 22-14
margin in the first period with
Macomber tossing in 13 points and
Richard Ray six. Ray's points came
on long passes down court by Ma
comber to Ray to break up a Quin.
cy full court press. Even though
the Sharks ended the first period
with their biggest lead, they also
were farther behind in the first
period than any other stanza.
Winster Chester kept the Tigers
in the game with 22 points.
The Sharks had a 34-26 half time
lead, but with tall Macomber out
of the game the Tigers began to
gain and had the Sharks tied 44-44
going into the fourth period. All
through the last period, neither
team had over a three point lead
and it was a see-saw battle. Shark
second stringer Eddie McFarland
saved the day for the Sharks, com,
ing into the game late in the fourth
period to score 12 points when
they needed them most.
As the regulation game drew to
6'a close, the score was tied, 57-57.

Quincy gained possession of the

the Sharks let them go on down

than risk.a foul shot.
The Sharks gained their shot at
the finals, by defeating Chipley
Friday night in their first game of
the year without the services of
their ace floor man, Jake Belin.
The Sharks defeated the Tigers

County Decides On
Gas Air Condif.ning
The County Commission decided
Tuesday night to install gas heat-
ing and air conditioning in the new
Gulf County courthouse to be con-
structed in Port St. Joe.
Engineers for the architects, Paul
Donofro and Harold Odum had
suggested four different methods
of heating and cooling the building
and presented estimated costs and
operation costs. The engineers are
the Shaver and Zgouvas Construc-
Commissioner Leo Kennedy made
a motion that the county install
electric air conditioning in the
building with an air to air heat
exchange. Kennedy argued that
the electric installation would be
cheaper over the long haul and
argued that the air to air installa-
tion would present less of a main-
tenance problem than a cooling
Kennedy's move failed for lack
of a second.
Commissioner T. D. Whitfield
then moved that the county install
gas heating and air conditioning in
the courthouse. His motion was sec-
onded by Commissioner Horton and
upon a vote Commissioners Whit-
field, Horton, Graham and Mc-
Daniell voted for the gas installa-
tion. Commissioner Kennedy voted
no. The Board entered into a con-
tract with the St. Joe Natural Gas
Company to furnish gas and main-
tain the equipment.

Senator Tapper Will Speak
Before Miami Kiwanians
State Senator George Tapper of
Port St. Joe will speak before the
Miami Kiwanis Club, the largest
civic club in the state.
Tapper will speak on his person-
al program for financing the
schools of the state.
Tapper's plan calls for levying
a four percent sales tax and using
all of the money for school pur-
poses. He would set up a minimum
teacher salary of $5,000 per year
and would have the state partici-
pate with 90 per cent of school
funds to each county as compared
with the present 75 percent.
The catch in Tapper's plan would
require any county receiving such
assistance to assess full valuation
on real estate.

Reading Program Started
For Deprived In Gulf County
By EDWARD A. BANDJOUGH
A reading and communications'
arts program got underway this
week at. the Wewahitchka schools,
in Wewahitchka, at Washington
High School in Port St. Joe and the
Highland View Elementary School,
according to William Linton, Coun-
ty Supervisor. Purpose of the pro-
gram is to provide economically de-
prived youngsters who need it with
special instruction in reading,
writing, speaking and other forms
Cost of the program is being
borne by the, federal government
under terms of. the Elementary-
Secondary Education Act, this year
to the tune of $75.766 in Gulf
A basic guideline or qualification
of the program is that the money
can be spent only at schools where
there is a concentration of econ-
omically deprived children. A sur-
vey in Gulf showed this concentra-
tion (391 children of economically
deprived families( to be at above-
mentioned schools-though in les-

(These aides do not teach must be spent for this special pro-
such. Rather, they assume many of
the non-teaching tasks which bur-
den teachers and encroach sharply
upon a teacher's time in the class-
room. The aides will relieve the
non-teaching tasks which burden
teachers and encroach sharply up-
on a teacher's time in the class-
room. The aides will relieve the
teachers of such non-teaching du-
ties as "baby sitting," recess su-
pervision, lunchroom supervision,
collecting lunchroom money, etc.
Too, once a teacher has completed
a segment of instruction, the aides
help the teacher by helping .smal-
ler groups of youngsters carry out
-or practice-the instruction. Vir-
tue of the aide's assistance is that
it turns the teacher loose to do
more hard core teaching and plan-
ning. In the few days this program
has been in operation, teachers af-
fected are delighted with the re-
sults, according to Linton.)
Present scope of the program
includes only youngsters in grades
one through seven. Next year the
program will be extended into the
junior ano high schools.

Make tomorrow's pancake breakfast tonight? It's easy with
At one batter-making session, you can prepare enough pan-
cake or waffle batter to last (under refrigeration), for three
bountiful breakfasts. And the batter on the third day will be as
light and lively- as the day you made it!
The key is an unusual new phosphate leavening azent which
most mills, are incorporating in their already versatile self-rising
flours. The new leavening agent, from the food laboratories of
Monsanto Company, lies quietly until triggered by griddle heat,
then it releases.leavening power at just the right time to give
pancakes and waffles full and flavorful lightness.
For Delicious Pancakes
2 cups of self-rising flour % cup cooking oil or
2 tablespoons sugar melted butter,
2 eggs margarine, or
11/3 cups milk shortening
Put eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat lightly with
rotary beater. Blend in milk and oil. Add flour. Blend together
and beat until batter is nearly smooth. Do not overbeat. Usual
batter for pancakes is cream-like in thickness.
Pour batter into a closable container, covered tightly to pre-
vent surface drying, and place in refrigerator. Before each fry-
ing, stir to eliminate any separation.
Pour batter on hot griddle or frying pan (about 400). Turn
when bubbles rise to surface in center. Griddle is not hot enough
if pancake is not brown When turned. It is too hot if bubbles
at. edge of pancake break before bubbles rise to surface at cen-
ter. It's not necessary to add more milk or water while frying
For refrigerated batter to produce succulent waffles, use above
recipe with these changes: 1 tablespoon sugar; 13/ to 2 cups
milk and 1/ cup cooking oil, butter, margarine or shortening.
(Waffle batter is usually thinner than pancake batta.s
Birthmarks Are Common On Babies
But Usually Disappear In Childhood
Every mother remembers her
first inspection of her newborn
baby. And the held breath and
pounding heart that went with it.
Some of those mothers recall, too,
their sinking feeling at the discov-

Have You Asked Yourself
Why should you travel extra mile and use u|
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs than in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
How can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches

ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid.
and contributions made by our local business peo-
ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build. a

You know about "those weeks"?
We have had one of "those weeks" at The Star this week .
and last week.
Last week, I had the flu the first three days of the week. The
latter part of the week we had the "Washington's Birthday" circu-
lar to print which you will receive Monday in your homes. This
week our linotype operator, Ed.Stokes, has the flu and had to stay
in bed and leave the linotype operating chores to "yours truly".
And now, it feels like I am trying to have a recurrence of the flu.
To top it all off, our printer, B. A. Collier has been trying to have
a baby all week or at least his wife has. I kept telling him the
matter was in good hands and he needn't worry about it, but some-
how his mind is not on getting out the paper.
So, if you get your paper this week, printed on every page,
all there, and delivered on time, it will be a miracle.
We want to congratulate the Sharks for winning their second
consecutive Gulf Coast Conference basketball title. Coach Bobby
Brown has done a wonderful job with the Sharks this year, and
the boys have put forth much work and long hours of practice
to become a championship team. It didn't "just happen".
They showed their ability by going into a championship
tournament, playing for the first game in three years, without the
services of their ace floor man, Jake Belin. Jake has also bees
instrumental all year in putting the points on the scoreboard
which on many occasions spelled victory for the Sharks.
You don't lose a valued man like Jake overnight and come
back the next day to whip two very good teams unless you have
a lot on the ball.
We want to tell you that' Ronald B. Ramsey, the Californian
who is producing antiwar propaganda: tape recordings for radio
Hanoi, is no kin to -s.
It irks us that networks will give 'so much time to these goons
who are trying as hard as they can to sow discontent in our country.
We think the country is great, and we would. not do anything to
harm its image, and can't understand 'how such garbage as Ronald
B. Ramsey can enjoy our benefits and at the same time, try to under-
mine our position.
Tucked away in a newspaper the other day, we read with satis-
faction the "operation appreciation", the 'students at the University
of Florida were producing to honor Vietnam veterans and to show
their appreciation for a great sacrifice made.
And you will note .this hasn't made Huntley Brinkley yet.
We join with the rest of the community in mourning the
death of our "working citizen" Harry Saunders. You just don't
find many "working citizens" any more. And Saunders stayed
right in there pitching for Port St. Joe, right up to the time of
We notice he never once said, "I've done my share, let some-
body else carry the ball a while."
He will be missed.

Soldier Writes of
Value of Scouting
We are indebted to the Gulf
Coast Council for permission to
reprint this letter from SP4 An-
drew K. Williams, serving in Viet-
nam to his former Scoutmaster,
Harry Sampley of Pensacola.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Sampley,
I'm sure many of the boys you
led in your Scouting career have
returned to say "thank you" for
all you taught them during their
days as a Scout under your guid-
ance. But all too many, like my-
self, think it often, but never seem
to have or take the time to put it
into words. I want to correct this
error on my part. In a deeply
heartfelt way, Harry Sampley, I
The things you taught me have
not only increased my love of the
out-of-doors, but also, they've
meant the difference between
life and death to me.
Here in Vietnam, life is almost
without comfort. We have had to
make everything to sit or stand on,
or to hang a rifle or store clothing.
in. I've found the technique of
building with rope and small brush
you taught to the boys in Troop;
10 during a year-long emphasis on
pioneering over 15 years ago a day
to day necessity to me here in
Vietnam. Shelters made "Harry
Sampley's Way" don't break or
blow down in heavy wind. The im-
portance of "ditching a tent" as
soon as it's pitched made mine the
only dry one in the company.
As my parents have probably
told you, one particular skill your
influence brought me has meant
the difference between life and
death to a nameless merchant sea-
man and myself. All the hours I
spent earning the Boy Scout Swim-
ming badge and Life Saving in-
structions were well spent. I found
the steps flashed instinctively into
my mind when the accident hap-
pened, as if the classes at Camp
Big Heart had ended the day be-
So once again, Harry, thanks so
much for all the hours you spent
with a little green boy in a wrink-
led Scout uniform. Thanks to you
he has "been prepared". And
thanks to you Mrs. Sampley, for
those hours you spent alone while
Harry was "with his boys". Those
were not wasted hours, days and

SChristian Prayer, article number
seven, "The Parts of Prayer".
Last week we shared the Bibli-
cal teaching on confession. Now
we shall look at the other parts of
Adoration and Praise--This is
the child of God being occupied
with his Lord, adoring and prais-
ing Him for all that He is, giving.
to God the pre-eminence in his
thoughts and prayers. This is plac-
ing God in the highest pinnacle of
our hearts. Our Father, God, is the
God of creation, He is almighty, all
wise, holy, righteous and should
always be in the foremost place
and exalted place of our hearts
__Thanksgiving-This is self ex-
planatory. It is the child of God
remembering to thank God for all
the blessings of needs met, guid-
ance and companionship of the
Lord, and the many blessings He
has poured out upon His child.
Intercession-This is the prayer
of the child of God for the needs
and care of others. It is the unload-
ing of the burdens of the heart for
others; our family, friends and
missionaries ,etc., presenting their
needs to the Lord and holding them
up in prayer.
Petition-This is presenting our
personal needs, desires, hopes,
etc., to the Lord. Putting ourselves
last in prayer is proper and good
discipline. God first, others second
and ourselves last. Let us remem-
ber that God has asked that we
bring all things to Him in prayer,
regardless of how small they may
seem. God wants to be Lord of all
of our life. The Christian has, for

his heavenly Father, a God that is
all wonderful and almighty. God
created the heavens and the earth
and all that is in them, visible and
invisible. Truly, He is a big God,
a mighty God, yet He is a God who
is personally interested in the fate
of a falling sparrow. "Be careful
for nothing; but in every thing by
prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be
made known unto God. And the
peace of God ,which passeth all un-
derstanding, shall keep your hearts
and minds 'through Christ Jesus."

You can bring out the paper
plates if you're hungry for art.
Children with crayons can do
more things with paper plates
than adults ever imagine.
Take small white paper plates
as a starter. Youngsters color
the rims to become frames. Then
in the center they may draw a
friend's portrait, or a tree or a
squirrel. The plates are a color-
ful gallery when hung up by
loops of yarn. The "primitives"
in your home may surprise you
with the bold, free work they do.
When weather permits -
brisk, windy days are ideal -
the plates can become' flying
saucers decorated with crayon.
Youngsters will want to get out
to spin them through the air in
mock battles and triumphant
soaring flights. There'll be no
need to scoot the family out for
exercise that day. One rule: all
flying saucers must be picked up
later and put in the wastebasket
for security reasons. The neigh-
bors will approve.
"Crayons may be a child's
most versatile tools," according
to Robert Haumersen, market-
ing vice president of Whitman
Publishing Company, Racine,
Wis., a firm which boxes rainbow
arrays priced from a dime to a
dollar. "Demand grows steadily.
Crayons are standard equipment
in nursery schools and kinder-
gartens. Head Start teachers use
them too. Home use, educators
say, helps a child grow
Youngsters supplied with cray-
ons often like to do plate work
because they are unlimited by
lines or rules. Little girls may
turn plain plates into fancy party
plates. Little boys may draw the
sun or a boat or a smiling or
frowning face. All will sit back
highly pleased at their achieve-
ment, you'll notice.
Paper plates can make a child
feel festive any day.

In the photo above, J. A. Fillingim is shown receiving the pin
for his grandson, Jake Belin, denoting his status as an all Gulf
Coast Conference basketball player.
Fillingim accepted the pin for Jake who was in a Pensacola
hospital at the time, undergoing head surgery.
Belin has been the valued floor leader and spark-plug of the
Sharks cage team for the past three years, and a flare-up of an
old head injury last week, sent him to the hospital for corrective
surgery on a plate which he wears in his head.
The Sharks talked to Jake by telephone prior to the Saturday
night game, and then went out on the floor to play their hearts out
and win their second straight Gulf Coast Conference title.

BOARD of PUBLIC INSTRUCTION
January 28, 1966
The Board of Public Instruction
of Gulf County, Florida, met in
special meeting at 5:00 o'clock
p.m., on the 28th day of January,
1966, the place ,hour and date duly
established for the holding of such
The Vice Chairman, Eldridge
Money, called the meeting to or-
der, and on call of the roll, the
following answered present: W. J.
Ferrell, J. K. Whitfield, Eldridge
Money, vice chairman, and the fol-
lowing were absent: Billy Joe Rich
and William Roemer, Sr.
The vice chairman declared a
quorum present and stated that the
purpose of the meeting was to
direct Mr. Norman P. Gross, Who
had been previously hired by the
Board as Architect, to proceed to
prepare the initial plans and speci-
fications for certain projects which
were listed in the Resolution adopt-
ed on December 22, 1965, for, the
issuance of revenue certificates in
the amount of $2,500,000. The plans
and specifications, of course, would
be prepared contingent upon the
validation by theCourt of the rev-
The Superintendent announced
that in accordance with the Board's
previous discussions on the amount
of money to be expended in Wewa-
hitchka and in Port St. Joe, that
such amounts were based on the
figure of $2,099,849, which figure
was arrived at as a result of deduct-
ing the reserve provided for in the
bond resolution ,the interest ac-
crued for one year, fiscal agent's
fee, estimated architect's fees and
cost of bus barn and maintenance
shop, the total of which amount to
$434,837 from the $2,500,000 bond
issue. To be added to this figure,
however, is the estimated accrued
interest which would be paid by
the purchasers of the revenue cer-
tificates up to the date of delivery,
and the figure arrived at for con-
struction costs would be based up-
on the estimates available for ex-
penditures for site acquisitions, ed-
ucational materials to be utilized
in the classrooms and total con-
struction costs would be $2,099,-
849, of which $563,178 would be
expended in Wewahitchka on a
per pupil allocation, and $1,536,-
671 in Port St. Joe and Highland
View on a per pupil allocation.
The Superintendent announced
that based upon consultations
with experts of the State Board of
Education and Architect Norman
P. Gross that estimated cost of a
new high school at Port St. Joe
for grades 7 through 12 to provide
for an initial pupil capacity of
1,000 would be as follows:
Site acquisition ----$ 30,000
Furn. equip &'
educ. materials ----- 137,804
Est. construction cost
of classrooms and
Total cost $1,462,834
Allowance of 2% for
contingencies -------- 29,256
Grand total --_ --_ $1,492,090
The Superintendent announced
that the County had $89,000 in re-
serve in Wewahitchka State Bank
from SBE moneys for which appli-
cation is being made for transfer
to be utilized on the construction
of Port St. Joe High School since
the same facilities which were ap-
proved by SBE would be used in
the new high school at Port St.
Joe. Therefore, this sum should be
deducted from the total cost of
construction of the new high school
facilities at Port St. Joe, leaving an
estimated balance of $1,402,490 of
moneys from the proposed revenue
certificates for Port St. Joe High
The Superintendent further sta-
ted that the estimates of experts
of the State Board of Education
and Norman P. Gross, Architect,
for renovating the existing Port
St. Joe High School to transform
same into an elementary school
would be approximately $100,000,
and that the construction of a li-
brary facility for Highland View
was estimated at $24,310, and that
to expand the lunchroom facility
at Washington High School would
approximate $9,871, and that the
total estimated cost of these much-
needed facilities was $1,536,671, or
the total allocated for the Port
St. Joe area on the per pupil ba-
The Superintendent further sta-
ted that other much-needed facili-
ties may not be built from the pro-
ceeds of the revenue certificates
because it appeared that moneys
would not be available for these
projects. These facilities were: ex-
pand library at Washington High
School; construct an additional
classroom at proposed Washington
High School; construct an addition-
al classroom and expand adminis-
trative suite and add storage space
at Washington Elementary Schoo'
at an estimated cost of $13,225; and
that the administrative suite at
Highland View Elementary School
should be expanded and a first aid
room and faculty rest room should
be constructed at said school, and
an additional classroom should be
constructed at an estimated cost of
The Superintendent also stated
that based upon the expert advice
of State Board of Education per-
sonnel and Norman P. Gross, Ar-
chitect, that the cost of the new
high school at Wewahitchka for
grades 7 through 12 was estimated
and development ----$ 15,000
and equipment ___--- 20,000
Total estimated con
struction cost ----- 505,439
Total cost of const., equip.,
and site allowance of 2%
contingency for cost of const.
or other costs -------- 10,808
Grand Total _------- $551,247
He further stated that five class-
rooms were already available at
the site of the proposed high school
at Wewahitchka. He stated that the
estimated balance which would be
available for use at Wewahitchka
of the per pupil allocation was
$11,931, and should be used to re-
novate the existing school to be
used for an elementary school, and
that such renovation cost would
primarily require transforming a
portion of the school at Wewahitch.

for elementary purposes since
much of the school is already be-

He stated that it would be desir-

rooms and special purpose rooms
at the proposed new Wewahitchka
High School, but that these facili-
ties could not be constrActed from

The Board authorized the hiring of the Gulf Timberland Company,
told the Board that his company
is the largest land owner in the
proposed Watershed District, own-
ing about two-thirds of the land,
which means that he would pay
two-thirds of the total cost; that
his company is in favor of this
project because it is good for the
land owners and all of Gulf Coun-
ty; that anything that is good for
Gulf County is also good for his
company, and that anything good
for his company is also good for all
S of Gulf County. He then told of his
experience with Soil Conservation
Districts and explained how these
Districts benefit the land owners;
that every acre that his company
owns is under some sort of Conser
Station District. He then stated that
his company has had as fine coop-
eration from the Gulf County Com-
missioners as could have been ex-
pected in that all have tried to be
good neighbors and will continue
to do so. He said that he knew of
Public Law 566 when he purchased
the Gulf County tract; that several
years ago, he urged the Gulf Coun-
ty Commissioners to make an ap
plication under this law because he
thought it was good for all con-
cerned, especially Gulf County. He
then urged the Commission to ap-
prove this project so far as pre-
sented tonight, which would then

said that he knew nothing about a
proposed canal, but assured all pre-
sent that the Watershed Project is
not connected to a canal project or
any other project; that a canal pro-

The Chairman announced that the
Watershed Project has been in the
making for 3/2 years; that the ca-
nal. project as reported in the news-
papers are altogether foreign to
this project and that sponsor of
this project has not notified or re-
ported its intentions to this Board.

pointed out that the increased num-

The grand total for Florida, in-
cluding all species was 1,605,066
birds. The 1965 total was 768,853
while the 1964 total was 1,153,300.
Although the 1965 figure showed a
decrease as compared to the 1964
figure, the 1966 count exceeds that
of 1964 and 1965. The increase was
made up principally of scaup, bald.
pate ,redhead and blue wing teal.
Canada geese showed a contin-
uing decline. The 1966 total on this
species is 6,000 geese and a de-
crease of 1,000 birds as the 1965
survey indicated 7,000 birds. Most
of the geese were observed in or
near Leon County and the St.
Marks Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla
County. The Game and Fresh Wat-

engaged in an accelerated study of
