The Sharks this year are a young
team, with only three players from
last year's squad returning for ac-
tion. Seniors Andy Trammell and
Danny Oaks and junior, Johnny
Richter are the only Shark veter-
ans. Coach Andy Portera told The
Star yesterday that although the
team is young and inexperienced,
they are capable of playing any-
body in their class a close ball

The Sharks won their opener last
Wednesday by defeating Wewa-
hitchka, 6-1 behind the hurling of
Johnny Richter. Richter gave up
three hits while the Sharks were
collecting five safeties. Andrew
Lewis hit twice for the Sharks.
The Sharks defeated the Gators
again Friday afternoon, 8-4 with
Danny Oaks and Jimmy Cox shar-
ing the hurling duties. Oaks went
four innings for the Sharks and
was the winning pitcher. Cox pit-
ched for three innings. The Sharks
collected four hits off the gators;
a home run by Ken Haddock, a tri-
ple by Lewis and a triple and sin-
gle by Johnny Richter.
The Sharks lost their first game
of the season Tuesday to Ruther-

State Supplies Money for
Expansion to Museum Here
The Florida Cabinet Tuesday
committed $23,300 for additional
work to the Constitution Park Mu.
seum here in Port St. Joe.
SIn. September; of 1964, the Gulf
County, Historical Co m m mission
requested, through the State Park
Board, that an addition be added to
the present museum and a replica
of the original convention hall be
placed hii this addition, together
with portraits and wax statutes of
the original Constitution Conven-
The Historical Commission has
already obtained portraits of sev-
eral of the original signers and
have asked the State to aid in se.
curing the additional portraits.
The Gulf Historical Commission
also asked that the museum be air
conditioned. Estimated cost of all
requested projects was estimated
Apparently the money allowed by
the Cabinet is meant to construct
only the addition to the Museum
at this time, and possibly do some
of the reconstruction work of the
original convention hall.
Funds for the entire project
was approved by the Florida Board
of Parks and Historic Memorials in
1964, but the Legislature failed to
include the project in its budget.

Ways and means of obtaining
state assistance in extending the
highway across the river will be
aired at the meeting.
SR 22 ends at Wewahitchka and
it long has been the dream of com-
munity leaders to see the highway
extended across, the Apalachicola.
The immediate goal is to have
SR 22 extended across the river to
connect with SR 369. The eventual
goal is to extend 22 in a direct line
eastward and south to the Tampa
Bay area. Such a route would save
motorists travelling to Tallahassee
about 20 miles and those going on
to Tampa some 40 miles.
Wewahitchka for the first time
is receiving some strong support
in its long struggle for an east-
west highway link.
Every municipality in Bay Coun-
ty, plus the county commission,
chamber of commerce and Commit-

resolutions include the city com-

Ford's Quiet Man, who recently toured Europe demonstrating
the exceptional quality of the '66 Ford to owners of some of the
world's most expensive cars, here discusses a '66 Ford XL with
Monsieur Bauchet outside of Monsieur Bauchet's Paris home.
"Such smoothness, such silence,"
says Jean Bauchet. "Your Ford is quieter, M'sieu."
Ford's quiet quality is the result of
advanced engineering features like a
revolutionary new frame that "tunes
out" road vibrations... the strongest
body ever on a Ford. But the quiet
ride is just one of many reasons why
you're ahead in a Ford all the way.
Only Ford in its class offers 0
Stereo-Sonic Tape Player option that
brings you over an hour of uninter-
rupted music of your choice, on each
self-threading, snap-in tape car-
tridge. n Magic Doorgate for wagons
(standard equipment) that opens out
like a door and down like a tailgate,
depending on whether you are load-
ing kids or cargo. Silent-Flo Venti-
lation (on 4-door hardtops) that
brings in fresh air and gets rid of
smoke and stale air with the windows
closed. m Even Ford's keys are
special-they're double-edged so
they fit in locks either side up. Visit
your Ford Dealer and test-drive a
'66 from Ford. See how
many ways Ford can
put you ahead in '66.
You're ahead in a FORD all theway!

troller Fred O. Dickinson this week

lected during a comparable period

THE SWORD OF HOPE Symbol of the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer,
was presented to Florida's Governor Haydon Burns (left), by James W. Walter (right) the
1966 volunteer state Crusade Chairman of the annual educational and fund-raising Crusade
against cancer. The occasion was the signing of the Governor's proclamation which designates
April as Cancer Control Month in Florida. (Fore-ground Poster) vibrant, 9-year-old, Julie
Dillard, one of 1,400,000 Americans, alive today, cured of cancer.
Gov. Burns Proclaims
April As Cancer Month
Because cancer is a serious
health problem in Florida, and an-
nually the cause of more than 9,700
deaths, along with an expectancy
of 20,000 new cases this year, Gov-
ernor Haydon Burns has issued a
proclamation designating April as
Cancer Control Month in Florida.
The proclamation points out,that
more than 65,000 men and women
have volunteered to participate in
annual educational and fund-rais-
ing Crusades throughout the state
to "tell their neighbors" about the
threat of cancer, what should be
done about it and how contributed
funds 'make it possible for the
Florida Division of the American
Cancer Society to conduct year-
round cancer control programs and
projects-to help save lives.
Citizens of all ages are also urg-
ed to learn "Cancer's 7 Danger Sig-
nals" so that they may' recognize
symptoms and consult ,with their
physicians should the symptoms
persist for a period of two weeks.
Early detection and prompt, pro-
per treatment is credited with sav-
ing thousands of lives.
Presentation of the Governor's
official document was made to
James W. Walter, Tampa, head of
the nationally known Jim Walter
Corporation, and volunteer state
chairman of the 1966 Crusade of
the Florida Division of the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
In exchange for the proclama-
tion, Walter presented to Governor
Burns, an American Cancer So-
ciety "Sword of Hope", which is
emblematic of the 1,400,000 Ameri-
cans alive today who are cured of

Jesus Christ is Eternal.
Although there was a point in
time/when Jesus Christ became the
Son of Man, a time when He' en-
tered the human race via a virgin
birth, he did not have his begin-
ning then. The Bible very clearly
declares that Jesus Christ always
was, He had no beginning and that
He always will be. He shall have
Jesus claimed to be eternal for
He said: "And now, 0 Father,
glorify thou Me with Thine own
self with the glory which I had
with Thee before the world was."
Here he claims to be before the
creation of all things (John 17:5).
Again we read in John 13:3, Jesus
claimed that when He entered into
the world He came from heaven:
"Jesus knowing that the Father
had given all things into His hands,
and that He was come from God
and went to God."
Next we see the Bible declares
that Jesus Christ is eternal. For

example, it is declared that Jesus
created the world, heaven, things
visible and invisible. Therefore, we
plainly see He existed before any-
thing was created, because He Him-
self is the Creator. In Micah, chap-
ter 5, verse 2, we are told that the
one who would come out of Beth-
lehem would be ruler of Israel
and that this same one going forth
had been from everlasting. Quote:
"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah,
though thou be little among the
thousands of Judah, yet out of thee
shall He come forth unto me that
is to be ruler in Israel; whose go-
ings forth have been from of old,
The titles given to Jesus Christ
also declare His eternal existence.
He is called The Mighty God, Ev-
erlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6). In
Romans 9:5 He is called God bles-
sed forever, in Titus 2.16 Jesus is
called the Great God and in the
book of the Revelation He is called
the Beginning and the End, the
First and the Last, the Alpha and
It is obvious, to the earnest read-
er ,that Jesus Christ is eternal. He
had no beginning and has no end-

be. And this Eternal Son of God is
the Saviour of all who will believe
that He died for their sins and
rose again the third day.

NOTES FROM THE
A GIFT OF PROPHECY
by Ruth. Montgomery
This is the book everyone is talk-,
ing about. This is the book that
startles, mystifies, fascinates. Jeane
Dixon has marvelous powers of
prophecy and uses her gift entire-
ly for good and without any remun-
eration. Among many other events
foretold these are outstanding:
President Kennedy's assassination;
Marilyn Monroe's suicide; the name
of a murderer; adoption of com-
munism by China.
Since Mrs. Dixon is much re-
spected in her home city of Wash-
ington, D. C., living a life of help-
ing people, we cannot fail to be
impressed though perhaps not un-
derstanding her remarkable gift.
