Merchants Throwing Big
'Sidewalk Sale' This Week
Begins Friday Thru Saturday
Port St. Joe merchants are featuring their an-
nual "Sidewalk Sale" this Friday and Saturday in
a big city-wide mid-summer sale event.
The merchants inaugurated their "Sidewalk
Sale" some four years ago, and the event has been
popular with the merchants and people of the Port
St. Joe trade area since its inception.
The sale has proven so popular that other areas
cities have adopted the promotion. i
--Plans by the merchants for this year's ;'sale
should make! it the largest "Sidewalk Sale" promo-
tion ever attempted and should prove to be very
enjoyable as well as profitable for the public in
entertainment and: savings on seasonal merchan-
3 Arrangements have been made to provide
free cold drinks for the two sale days. The cold
drinks will be dispensed from a machine on Reid
Avenue all day Friday and Saturday. Free bal-
loons will be provided for all the kids and a
live string band will play in downtown Port St.
Joe Saturday afternoon from 1:00 to 6:00 pjm.
The band had formally been contracted for 2:00
to 6:00 p.m., but an extra hour was arranged for
this past week.
To advertise the sale, a 12-page circular has
been prepared by The Star and has been distributed
from -Mexico Beach to Lanark Village. A copy of
the circular may also be found enclosed in this
week's issue of The Star.
The merchants urge you to come to downtown
Port St. Joe Friday and Saturday; enjoy a free cold
drink, or two, or three at their expense, get a free
balloon for the kids and shop the many savings you
will find in Port St. Joe stores this week end.

County Commission Tables Wetappo Watershed Project
Until Changes Can Be Made In Voting Procedures
The Gulf County Commission
killed the possibility of creating a
Wetappo Creek Watershed District
for the time being Tuesday morn-
Wiley Garret of Blountstown,
with the Soil Conservation District
appeared before the Commission
Tuesday stating that Calhoun Coun-
ty wished to join in the program,
since the headwaters of Wetappo
Creek extend up into Calhoun
But Commisisoner Walter Gra-
ham made a motion to table any
action on the Watershed project
for the time being. His motion was
seconded by Commissioner T. D.
Whitfield, and all members of the
Board voted for the motion.

Trip This Summer
Five local boys completed a 13
day raft trip down the Chipola
Friday morning at about 10.00 a.m.
when they pulled into the docks
of the Gulf Oil Company in Apa-
The five boys, Billy Simmons,
John Maddox, Johnny White, Allen
Humphrey and Joe Rycroft began
their trip on Monday, June 27.
They met their first mishap on the
first day, barely three miles from
their starting point. This was when
they shot the first rapids of the
Little Looking Tremble Shoals near
Marianna. According to the boys,
they went over the first rapids and
their raft hit a large rock breaking
it up pretty bad.
The rest of the first day was
spent in making repairs.
On two other occasions, the raft
was'damaged in the upper regions
of the Chipola on rocks and rapids
but repairs were made and the
boys continued their trip.
Make Dead Lakes
The dangerous waters and areas
of relatively calm waters slowed
the journey of the raft consider-
ably on the first half of the jour-
ney. It took them to Tuesday, July
Board to Add Two
Classrooms At School
The Gulf County School Board
received permission from the State
Board of Education this past week
to divert funds earmarked for con-
struction, to use by the Board in
building two new class rooms at
Port St. Joe High School.
The new class rooms are being'
built by the School Board to pre-
vent overcrowding at the High
School. The over-crowding is ex-
pected from the fact that there
will be 175 students to enter the
seventh grade at the high school at
the next term in addition to the
several students gained from the
recent placement by choice pro-

5 to make the Dead Lakes.
The raft was then transported
around the Dead Lakes Dam and
the journey resumed once again
on Wednesday morning, July 6.
The remaining journey to Apa-
lachicola took only a day and a
half, after spending more than a
week traveling from Marianna to
the Dead Lakes.
The boys said they arrived at
the mouth of the Apalachicola Ri-
ver Thursday evening, late, but the
wind and tide blew them back into
the River, so they had to wait un-
til Friday morning to complete
their journey into Apalachicola.
A Long Trip
The boys said that in talking
with men familiar with the wind-
ing Chipola and Apalachicola, they
were told their journey covered
about 175 miles.
They got the idea of the trip at
the Boy Scout camp held in June,
when Scoutmaster Simpson told
many stories of his boyhood days
when he and other boys would raft
down the Chattahoochee River
from Bainbridge to Chattahoochee.
On their return home, the boys
immediately set about building
their raft to take their trip and
spent more than a week getting
All of the boys said the journey
was interesting and "a lot of fun".
They are now making plans to
make a trip down the Apalachicola

Vacation Tips From Red Cross
As millions of Americans prepare for their annual
summer holidays, the American Red Cross has urged them
to take every possible safeguard to insure accident-free,
healthful, and relaxing vacations.
"Common sense precautions will prevent experiences
that can be uncomfortable, painful or downright dangerous,"
declared A. B. Murphy, national director of Red Cross
Safety Services. He recommended that at least one member
of every family take the Red Cross first aid course and also
offered these safety suggestions for a vacation outdoors free
from unpleasant mishaps:
1. Play it safe from the start by making sure your
car's brakes, lights, signaling devices, steering mechanisms,
and exhaust systems are in good working order, and the
tires, including the spare, are sound. Pack your car so
that the driver has perfect visibility in front, rear and sides.
Drive carefully and make allowances for the chances less
careful drivers will take.
2. Select camp sites that are well away from such
hazards as steep cliffs and banks. If you have small
children, inspect the area for deep holes and dangerous
3. Be sure the drinking water supply is good. In
state and national parks, the tap water is sure to be. But
many lakes and streams are polluted.
4. Wear clothing appropriate to the environment,
including proper shoes or boots and trousers in brush areas.
5. Avoid overexposure to the sun.
6. Take along a good repellant to combat insects.
7. Identify-and keep children away from-poisonous
plants in the area: those dangerous to touch, such as poison
oak, poison ivy and sumac, and those, like wild berries and
toadstools, that look edible but are poisonous.
8. Learn about the wildlife in the area-large animals
that are dangerous, and venemous snakes.
9. Be sure that any campfire you build is in a com-
pletely cleared area and when you have finished with the
fire, extinguish it with water, then shovel earth on top of
10.' Make sure knife blades are sharp. When using,
cut away from you. Keep knives in sheath or stored in
separate compartments from other utensils when not in
11. If you use a charcoal grill for cooking, never use
it in an enclosed patio, tent or cave, or inside a building,
because of the danger of asphyxiation by carbon monoxide.
A New Co of Governmnt
A New Concept of Government,
Proposals now before Congress would "introduce a new
-oncept of government in business," declares J. E. Corette,
president of the Montana Power Company. He was refer-
ring to legislation to create a federal electric bank for REA
borrowers a bank that would make available some $10
billion for the expansion of rural electric cooperatives.
Such expansion of public power is entirely unjustified,
because rural electrification has been largely completed.
'Government subsidized REA systems would enormously step
up competition with investor-owned utilities with serious
loss in tax revenues. Cooperatives pay annual taxes of only
six tenths of one per cent of the cost of their property, while
the taxes of private utilities represent about 5 per cent of
their property cost. Under the proposed plan for a federal

The idea of all-out government competition with pri-
vate business, plus the huge tax losses that would result,
have created strong opposition to the electric bank idea. A
former chairman of the Federal Power Commission, Nelson
Lee Smith, in summarizing his reasons for opposing pending
bills in Congress for the electric bank, states that: "(1) They
are not needed (2) They would encourage wasteful
duplication of facilities (3) Such uneconomic duplication
and competition would be subsidized at great cost to the
taxpayer .. (4) This subsidy program would lack both

Who's Running Schools?
The superintendent of the school district in the little
city of Beaverton, Oregon, is having troubles-troubles
which are'-not of his own or his community's making. They
are troubles which are shared by innumerable other such
districts the country over including the Gulf County
Board. They have to do with the masses of red tape in-
volved in federal aid to education.
Specifically, in this superintendent's view, "the require- i
ments are completely unreasonable" in applying for funds
under Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education (
Act of 1965. As an example, it is demanded that each and
every one of the books of the district's libraries be inven-
toried. He says of this, "All the information they need they
could be given on one piece of paper."
News accounts report that the Beaverton School Board
unanimously supports the superintendent and fears that fed-
eral aid is turning into federal control. The sad fact is that s
it would be remarkable if it didn't. The old adage still ap- a
plies: He who pays the piper calls the tune. And the de- a
mands made on local bodies inevitably grow ever larger.
This is the bureaucrats' way of showing that they must p
have more funds, more staff, more authority. So, little by a
little, local and individual responsibility, local determination p
to forge ahead, and local rights and liberties, are whittled t
away. Nothing is sharper than the knife of the bureaucrat.
And the sad part of the whole affair is, that we, as local
citizens are aiding and abetting and even demanding this
trend of events by our refusal to face up to our fiscal re-

Where flooding can be practic-

and a word of caution about avoid
ing some outdoor hazards was is
sued today as an aid to sportsmen
and outdoor enthusiast by Brantley
Goodson, Law Enforcement Chief
of the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
Goodson said, "precaution
against hazards in the out doors
should start well before the trip
begins. A complete physical may
provide warning against excessive
activity and a tetanus shot is the
best insurance against infection
from assorted causes."
He said, "fishermen are exposed
to many wounds, such as being
pricked by fish fins, snagged on
an artificial bait or nicked by a
knife while cleaning fish." Fisher-
men were also advised to include
a small pair of snippers in their

The Law Enforcement Chief said,
'Folks moving about fishing camps,
especially when bare footed, might
occasionally step on fish bones
which are highly infectious."
A standard first aid kit should
definitely be included among
portsmens' equipment to bulwark
anti-infection percautions through

Goodson said, "Wildlife officers
patrolling fishing and wilderness
reas are frequently called on to
providee first aid and are trained

CANDIDATE: We have a local candidate for the "meanest
person or persons in the world".
And this person or persons work at achieving this distinction
diligently. They even burn the midnight oil and iay even work
up into the wee hours of the morning.
But we can see no future to it.
These diligent souls are working for their title by stealing
flowers at the cemetery and tearing up grave tops and messing up
the cemetery in general.
This person or persons has a lot to do, haven't they?
We can only hope that they come to their senses and realize
what they are doing before they achieve their goal of becoming "the
meanest person or persons in the world."
OPPORTUNITY: It seems that we are always an hour late or a
dollar short when it comes to taking advantage of opportunity.
In reading one of the Sunday supplements we came upon an
article about a Siamese cat named "Syn Cat" that is starring in the
movies. This darn cat makes $1,000 a week starring in such films
as "That Darn Cat" and "Perilous Journey". That's a lot of cat
And it's so simple to get the cat to do his tricks or proceed
through his paces. His trainer says that he worked hard getting
the cat to follow the sound of a tinkling bell with a food reward at
the source of the bell sound.
If we had only known!
Our Siamese cat "Sinbad" is already trained. Had we known
they wanted to make these movies and star a Siamese, we could be
making that 1,000 clams a week.
Sinbad doesn't follow a bell though. But just you let the elec-
tric can opener start up in our house, at any time of the day or
night, and Sinbad will come running.
And it wouldn't be too hard to substitute a can opener for a
bell sound, now would it?
CONSTITUTION: The current project of revising the Florida
Constitution is taking up a good bit of space in the daily papers
these days. According to the stories there will be some drastic
changes suggested for the new Constitution. Among these changes
is the suggestion that the Cabinet be appointed rather than elected.
Needless to say this is meeting some stiff opposition. A Governor
WOULD have a plum to hand out if these pusts were appointive.

for a small weekly newspaper to do so. It is nearly impossible for
a large weekly or small daily to do so. It will be an expensive and

Hurricanes, ice, snow, tornadoes

the wrong place at the wrong time
from coast to coast and border
have the old weather apple cart not
only upset but turned topsy-turvy.
To the layman it dosen't make
a bit of since. We are inclined to
blame it on everything from the
atomic bomb to the war in Viet
Nam. But scientists try to com-
:fort us with assurance that it is
all normal and natural and con-
trolled by the cycles.
They tell us that the jet stream,
that powerful upper air flow has
changed its location. It marks the
southern bonudary of the polar
air mass which expands when it is
cool and contracts when it is warm.
The change of the jet stream
they say is causing us to experi-
ence cooler summers and colder
winters. It seems we are reaching
the end of a warm cycle and can
look forward to more severe win-
ters and cooler summers for some
time. The world is getting colder

getting milder most of the timei

four times as much in the arctic as

Now the cycle is changing and

weather that will be experienced
in both Europe and America. Cli-
matologists point to previous low
temperature cycles in the following
years, 1550, 1790 and 1812. For
30 years before 1790 it had been
quite warm in Europe while lower
temperatures lagged behind in
America. Another period of cold
ran from 1870 to 1910 in the
Bruce Frisch, writing in Science,
Digest, tells us that in the future,
airline pilots will have to fly fur-
ther south to hitch a ride on the
jet stream. Ship captains will have
to watch out for iceburgs that "have
almost vanished from the sea
lanes to Europe. Birds and animals
that moved north with, the warm
era, will return south again as
glaciers grow and sea temperatures
drop. The growing season will be-
come shorter and so will the ice-
free season on the Great Lakes.
Finally the grandpas of tomor-
row will have to learn a new line.
Instead of boasting how cold the
winters used to be, they will have
to recall how hot the summers
Professor Hurd Willett meteror-
ologist of the Massachusetts Insti-
tute Of Technology contends that
the colder, wetter weather will con-
tinue through the year 1990. Trop-
ical disturbances will again move
west originating in the Gulf rather
than the Atlantic and moving
north to the west rather than the
east of Florida.
The recent weather patterns
seem to bear this out with severe
weather in the same time that Hur-
ricane Alma traveled up the Flor-
ida West Coast.

By Rev. Bill Graham
The Holy Spirit does only what
God can do; therefore, the Holy
Spirit is God.
In the work of creation of this
world we find in Genesis 1:1 that
God created the heavens and earth.
In John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:15-17
and Hebrews 1:2, 3, we find the
truth that Jesus Christ created the
heavens and earth. Still further
we read in Psalms 104:30 "Thou
sendest forth Thy spirit, they are
created: and Thou renewest the
face of the earth." (also see Job
The Holy Spirit is said to have
created all things. Here we find
the Bible declares that the Blessed
Trinity all took part in the crea-
tion. Next we find in the Bible re-
cord that the Holy Spirit is the one
by whom man is created. This we
find in Job 33:4: "The Spirit of
God hath made me, and the breath
of the Almighty hath given me
We find-also that when a person
accepts Christ as his personal Sav-
iour, he at that time (and not be-
fore), becomes a child of God (John
1:12); and also, that this event is
called a birth of God (John 1:13).
This birth happens only when a
person personally accepts Christ..
No person, organization or denomi-
nation can make them a child of
God by any act or ordinance. It is
an act of God through that person's
faith in Christ that makes him a
child of God, "But as many as re-
ceived Him, to them gave he pow-
er to become the sons of God, even
to them that believe on His name:
which were born, not of blood, nor
of the will of the flesh, nor of the
will of man, but of God." John 1:
This Spiritual birth, which all
need or else they will go to Hell
forever in torment, is recorded in
God's word as the work of tht Holy
Turn in your Bibles to John 3:5-7
"Jesus answered and said unto
him, verily, verily, I say unto thee,
except a man be born again, he
cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto Him, 'How
can a man be born when he is old?
Can he enter the second time into
his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, verily, verily, I
say unto thee, except a man be
born of water and of the Spirit, he
cannot enter into the kingdom of
God. That which is born of the
flesh is flesh; and that which is
born of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel
not that I said unto thee, ye must
be born again."
Here is a man called Nicodemus
who is well educated, rich, a ruler
of the Jews, religious and having
human life. Yet, at this point not
only will he not enter the kingdom
of God but he will not even see it.
He must be born again. His human
life cannot provide what is neces-
sary to enter the kingdom of God.
(Also see Titus 3:5 and I John
This being born of God (born
again) is the work of God the Holy
Spirit in a person when that per-
son, for himself, accepts Christ by
faith. So here we find the Holy
Spirit does only what God can do,
creation of the heaven and earth,

"The four additional hours each

of the changes in the Social Securi-
ty Law affect people who work

"Every individual approaching
age 65 needs to file a Social Securi-
ty claim to establish his rights to
medicare," Carey continued. A per-
son is eligible for medicare when
he reaches age 65 even though he
continues working on a full time
basis or is running his business on
a full time basis. The Social Securi-
ty claim must be filed in the three
month period before the 65th
birth month if the individual is to
have rights under medicare for
the month he reaches age 65.
Evening hours on Fridays should
be a big help to such individuals

Today's headlines, and they are
becoming r a t h e r common-place.
These are today's headlines in to-
day's paper but they could very
easily be any day's headlines in
almost any paper.
Bribery is a disgusting thing but
it is even more sickening and de-
spicable when we watch our own
government the most powerful
nation the world has ever known
resort to international bribery.
Your government is trying to bribe
its way out of an undeclared war
against a nation so small it wasn't
even known to most of us 10 years
You call it international diplo-
macy you call it foreign aid -
and you may call it something else,
but I call it bribery.
A few months ago, President Lyn-
don Johnson appealed to the North
Vietnamese to meet him at the
peace table. In the one hand he
held the dove of peace, but in the
other hand, instead of holding rea-
son and honor, he held a blank
check for billions of dollars worth
of economic aid. He spoke of peace
in one breath but in the next he
talked about more money than this
little war torn country had ever
Is this anything but bribery?

on the East and West Coast. But the Communists didn't take
--- the bait. They've been this route
SAY YOU SAW iT IN THE STAR before. They knew we'd be back
with another probably better
They didn't have long to wait. A
few weeks later Johnson sent Vice
President Humphrey on a tour of
world capitals asking the leaders
of these countries to help us bring
the Vietnamese to the peace table.
As Humphrey pleaded with these
leaders to help us, he rattled the
coin of the realm in his pocket. It
was somewhat reminiscent of the
Roman soldier who offered Judas
Iscariot 20 pieces of silver!
Can this be called anything but
Now I can see some of you say.
ing to yourselves: "This man is a
warmonger. : He wants to take
a chance of starting another world
Yes, I want to take a chance.
We've got to take a chance on the
walls of this once great nation are
going to come crumbling down.
But I ask you: Since when did tak-
ing a chance stop the United
States of America from standing
up and fighting for its rights?
WE TOOK CHANCE
Our parents and grandparents in
World War 1 took a chance when
they stormed out of those mud-
filled trenches and crossed over
barbed wire into the face of enemy
machine gun fire in Flanders. I
They took a chance. And the
millions of men who today lie un-
der those little white crosses in
France, they took a chance.
In our own generation, some of
you here tonight, we took a chance
on Omaha Beach as we stepped
over the bodies of our fallen com-
rades and waded ashore.
Just 10 years ago in Korea, our
boys took a chance when they
climbed to the top of Heartbreak
Ridge which was already red with
the blood of American boys.
Why, Americans have been
taking chances since before this
nation was formed. They took a
chance crossing the ocean to get
With Mini Basket
here-they took a chance on the
wagon trains moving westward.
Why if they hadn't taken a chance
at Valley Forge, there wouldn't be
any America today.
But then I suppose things have
changed. We finally quit taking
chances. We decided to quit taking
chances in Korea and what hap-1
opened? Still today in that country
there is a line across that coun-
try guarded by troops who remem-
ber a war we never lost but we
never won simply because we
refused to take a chance.
We didn't want to take a chance
back in 1945 when we sat down at
the conference table with Russia
and divided the city of Berlin. And
today, because we didn't take a
chance ,there is a concrete and
steel wall separating the people of
that once mighty city a wall of
infamy which is a monument to
bribery and appeasement.
We decided not to take a chance
in Cuba five years ago when we
left those brave Freedom Fighters
stranded on the beach at the Bay
of Pigs. We promised them air cov-
er and support and at the last min-.
ute we decided not to take a
chance and let them walk into the
very jaws of hell.
I say to you if we are going to
win this fight against worldwide
communism and we must win
it we are going to have to take
some chances. We are going to
have to talk to the Communists in
the only language they understand
-the language of brute force.
We must take a chance in Korea.
We have to take a chance in Viet
We must take a chance in Wash-
We must replace bribery with
bravery. God help us if we don't.

The newly organized Little Thea-
tre group of Port St. Joe has re-
ceived further encouragement and
endorsement in the form of a letter
from Mrs. Jessie Ball duPont, of
which excerpts follow:
"Through my associates I have
learned of the enterprising and
commendable organization of the
Little Theatre Association of Port
St. Joe and this knowledge has fil-
led me with a great deal of pride
The Little Theatre movement has
been responsible in a very real
way for the development of the
American drama. Its contribution
to our country and society cannot
I have always had a great deal
of affection for your town. Mr. du-
Pont felt the same way. Naturally,
therefore, it gives me a great deal
of pleasure and gratification to see
the Little Theatre movement tak-
ing root in your splendid city. My
congratulations and all good wishes
for tremendous success."
This letter of congratulations
was appreciated very much by the
entire membership, most 9f whom
are now in the midst of rehearsals
for their first production, "The
Mouse -That Roared" to be pre-
sented July 27th and 28th at the
Port Theatre. Advance General Ad-
mission and Reserved Seat tickets
will go on sale soon and a listing
of where they may be obtained will
be published in the Star. The above
photos show some members off
from rehearsing to ham it up for
the camera. The group would ap-
preciate any additional support,
particularly from the members of
the Community, which may be giv-
en by simply picking up the tele-
phone and calling 227-2011, the
office of Rex Addison. Leave your
name at this number and a mem-
ber of the Little Theatre Associa-
tion will call on you to see that you
have a membership in the organi-
zation, which at this time only cost
$1.00. Joining the Association does
not mean that you will be required
to take an active part, although it
is hoped that most people will want
to do that.

19 per cent, or 16 persons, died
from some form of cancer.
State-wide during 1965, there

our hope to make more citizens
constantly aware of the vicious
disease, to urge them to become
aware of 'cancer's 7 warning sig
nals,' and to recommend to every
one the wisdom of having regular
health checkups which include a
general cancer examination."
