Board take advantage of the lower
price tag immediately.

in the making to limit increases
in participation from year to year

School Bond Issue
The Florida Supreme Court approved last
Wednesday, validation of a $2.5-million bond issue
for school construction and improvements in Gulf
Three taxpayers, consisting of Tom Coldewey, J.
Lamar Miller and James McNeill had appealed the
validation by a lower court on grounds that the
school board would not be able to replace income
from race track revenues-now used for opera-
tional expenses-if the race track money was used
to finance the bonds as intended.
The court pointed out that part of the bond
resolution declared that the school board would re-
place the operational revenues "from sources other
than ad valorem taxes." This, the court viewed,
was tantamount to saying replacement-funds were
anticipated. The petitioners claimed that no such
funds were available.
Further questioning of how the county would
finance its schools was not a matter of judicial
inquiry, the court ruled.
In its meeting Tuesday, the Board decided to
set the machinery in motion to began preparations
necessary for the bond sale.

Hannon Contacts Ball
Mayor Frank Hannon reported to

with Edward Ball of the St. Joe

chasing waterfront property by the
city for use as a boat basin.
Hannon reported that Ball had
refused to sell the property at the
end of Fifth Street now used for
a boat launching facility. He did
say that property could probably
be purchased on the canal and
Hannon said that he expressed the
Board's preference, offering $25,-
000 for five acres at the site of the
present St. Joe Boat Club basin on
the Gulf County Canal. Hannon
said he advised Ball if this proper-
ty is not available, the City would
make the same offer for a like

"Thus Saith The Lord"
by Rev. Bill Graham
Last week we shared together
hat the Holy Spirit in the Old
'estament came upon or in a per-
on according to the will of God
nd was not necessarily perman-
:nt. This week we shall consider
hat period of time in which our
hord walked upon this earth. Many
things happened during this period
hat had not happened before nor
vill happen again.
rdn relation to the Lord Jesus
;hrist, the ministry of the Holy
Spirit was very special. We find
n Matthew 1:18-20 that the hu-
aanity of Christ was conceived by
he Holy Spirit. However, the
criptures do not teach that the
loly Spirit is the Father of Christ.
In connection with our Lord's
ife on earth, He was filled with
he Holy Spirit from conception
Luke 1:15) (John 3:34). Christ was
baptized by the Holy Spirit (Matt.
:13-17), not for sins for He was
he sinless one (1 Corinthians 5:21)
,ut as the induction of Christ into
lis public ministry.
As the Holy Spirit is the normal
ource of the prophetic messages
n the Old and New Testaments, we
ind the Holy Spirit anointed the
,ord Jesus to preach (Luke 4:
9-21). Also, Christ performed his
miracles in the power of the Holy
Spirit (Matt: 12:28). He offered
himself as the Lamb of God will-
rg to die for our sins in the pow-
r of the-Holy Spirit (Hebrews
:14) and, in His resurrection, we
ind the power of the Holy Spirit
ias used (I Peter 3:18).
The Holy Spirit's relationship to
aen in this period before the cross
7as also very special. For example,
7e read in Luke 11:13, "If ye then
*eing evil, know how to give good
ifts unto your children: how
auch more shall your heavenly
'ather give the Holy Spirit to them
hat ask him". This passage is di-
ected to the children of God
'your heavenly Father") and the
promise is that the Holy Spirit
rould be given to them as they
sk for Him. This was a bona fide
ffer, but nowhere in scripture is
here a record of anyone taking
advantage of this offer.
No one asked for the Holy Spir-
t, but this is not too .strange in
iew of the fact that such a thing
was so different to man's know-
ledge for over 1500 years, during
which period the Holy Spirit was
given to whomever God so willed.
Such a thing as asking for Him
was never heard of in that time.
We shall continue this subject of
the relationship of the Holy Spirit
with man, during the Lord's time
here on earth next week, Lord

Don't Store Cold
Cuts for Very Long
GAINESVILLE Don't store cold
cuts in the refrigerator any longer
than 3 to 5 days.
Even the best of refrigerators
on normally cool days won't hold
these meats beyond that time limit,
says Dr. Robert L. Reddish, meats
specialist, Florida Agricultural Ex-
tension Service. And in humid
weather refrigerator temperatures
tend to go up too.
Fresh roasts, chops, and steaks
likewise should not be held for
more than 2 to 4 days. For poultry
and fish shorten this period to im-
mediate use and never over two
Store these foods in the coldest
part of your refrigerator where the
temperature is usually 30 degrees
to 35 degrees. Keep wrappings
loose so air can circulate around
Store ham, frankfurters, bacon,
bologna, and smoked sausage in
the coldest part of the refrigera-
tor in their original packaging.
Use up bacon within a week, a half
ham in 3 to 4 days, and a whole
ham within a week. If a whole ham
is too much for the family to use
when it's peak quality, purchase
smaller amounts. Wrap ham slices
tightly. Plan to use them within
a few days.
Ground meat such as hamburger
and bulk sausage are quick to
spoil. Use up such meat within 1 to
2 days, or freeze it. The problem
is that more of the meat surface
has been exposed to contamination
from air, handlers, and mechani-
c a equipment. Always store
ground meat loosely wrapped in
the coldest part of the refrigerator.

A VERY PRUDENT MOVE
The Gulf County Commission voted on Thursday of
last week to make, in our opinion, one of their wisest ex-
penditures of county money, when they voted to become
a participant .with the Gulf Coast Junior College in Bay
County. And the beautiful part of this particular expen-
diture is that it will benefit numerous Gulf County people
at a fraction of the usual cost of such wide-spread lar-
With the voting of an expenditure of $4,903.10, the
county is providing for Gulf County a source of college
education for Gulf County students at a savings not pos-
sible anywhere else. They have made possible the pro-
vision of special college-level classes which can be taught
in Port St. Joe or Wewahitchka, by college professors,
with only a guarantee of enough students to take a cer-
tain, desired course. They have also paved the way for
providing bus service-in the future-for Gulf County
students attending Gulf Coast which will result in an-
other saving for local students by allowing them to live
at home and commute to school.
But probably the greatest asset, is that the way has
been opened whereby it is conceivably possible in the
future that a branch of Gulf Coast could be opened in
Gulf County should the pupil load demand it.
It has been the desire of. many Gulf County people
for several years to see such participation come about.
But in the past, the attempts at participation have been
made before the Gulf County Board of Public Instruction,
which just didn't have the money to enter into such a pro-

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY S
After reading the special articles in the Panama City News and
Herald for the past few days, it looks as if nobody wants 1-10 in
North Florida We'll take that back Panama City and Mar-
ianna still want the controversial road, but almost to a man the
other communities along the proposed "Northern" route don't want
anything to do with this new super highway.
And we can't blame them at all. A limited access highway
such as 1-10 is reputed to be, would literally dry up the smaller
cities and towns in its vicinity. And the business people in these
areas are smart enough to realize this.
One of the reasons we voted against Mayor Robert King High
was because he advocated placing the highway nearer to us. Such
a super highway 10 to 20 miles from Highway 98, would dry up
,the tourist traffic coming our way. As it is, with the highway fol-
lowing the northern route, a good portion of the tourist traffic will
still come our way, even though it is a little farther to South Flor-
ida, just to get to look at the Gulf of Mexico and follow its scenic
shore on Highway 98.
Just a word of caution four-laning of 98 would take it
away from the waterfront, too and there would be no incentive for
the tourist to come this way. It would also by-pass the several
towns it passes through and would destroy our transient business,
which is considerable. The best thing I believe we can work for
is the straightening of some of the more crooked sections of 98
west of Apalachicola and make it a safe, comfortable highway on
which to travel and enjoy the scenic beach drive.
But, getting back to Mr. High .. we didn't really have to
worry, did we? He still hasn't moved 1-10 south.
The newspapers are making a lot of Supreme Court Justice
William 0. Douglas taking his fourth bride. Much has been said
about Douglas, 67 years' old, divorcing his third wife who was an
old bag of 26 and wedding up with a 23 year old bride.
It must have been that Douglas' "old wife" was just too old
for a sprightly young man of 67. You know it couldn't be that
the Justice is "odd" any way or that his perspective is warped
in any way Why anybody would know that by just looking
at some of the decisions he has made lately in his duties as Su-
preme Court Justice.
It has been found that the young man who murdered the host
in Austin, Texas Monday was ill with a tumor of the brain. This
makes his case sad, but nevertheless a gruesome act. And there
is the man named Speck in Chicago, who claims he is innocent of
murdering eight nurses by virtue of insanity.
These acts, as terrible as they are, are no more crimes against
the citizens than the current wave of rioting against private proper-
ty in Chicago, Cleveland and Omaha.
When we read of these things, we are thankful once again thai
we live in a quiet little town where everybody is friends, where
peace abides, where we can take a walk at night without too much
far of being attacked, where we can go off from home for awhile
,and leave the doors unlocked and be almost certain of coming bac
to find things as we left them.
We have no guarantee of these degrees of safety, of course, bu
still the fact of safety and protection is such that we are not taxec

THE STAR, Port sf. Joe, Fla.
Some of the nation's larger cit-
ies are fast approaching a literal
bumper-to-bumper, curb-to-curb au-
tomobile saturation in spite of the
millions and millions of dollars
they have spent in the construc-
tion of freeways and super high-
At the same time they have re-
moved millions of'dollars of val-
uable property from their tax rolls,
in many instances destroyed fam-
ous historical landmarks and beau-
ty spots and still the situation
shows no improvement.
It is apparent that more and
wider freeways is not the answer.
Every mile of freeway we build in-
to our cities calls for more and
more down town parking space. In
some areas 40 percent or more of
the usable land area is already de-
voted to parking. Consider the fact
that we are producing cars one and
a half times faster than we are
producing babies and you begin
to get the picture.
Ask motorists who drive back
and forth to work in our larger
cities that provide the utmost in
freeways and they will tell you of
the difficulties that confront them,

HOW TO MAKE DELINQUENTS
We're indebted to the Houston, Texas Police Depart-
ment for compiling the following "Twelve Rules for
raising Delinquent Children."
"1. Begin with infancy to give the child everything
he wants. In this way he will grow up to believe the
world owes him a living.
"2. When he picks up bad words, laugh at him.
This will make him think he's cute. It will also encourage
him to pick up 'cuter' phrases that will blow off the top
of your head later.
"3. Never give him any spiritual training. Wait until
he is 21 and then let him 'decide for himself.'
"4. Avoid the use of the word 'wrong.' It may de-
velop a guilt complex. This will condition him to believe
later, when he is arrested for stealing a car, that society
is against him and he is being persecuted.
"5. Pick up everything lie leaves lying around-
Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
TALLAHASSEE Colonel H.
N. Kirkman, Director of the De-
partment of Public Safety, today
ordered all Florida Highway Pa-
trol Troopers to immediately in-
itiate an all-out statewide drive
on driver's license checks during
the month of August and at the
same time requested the assistance
of local law enforcement officials
in the drive.
"Last year figures showed that
for the first time in Florida's his-
books, shoes, clothing. Do everything for him so that
he will be experienced in throwing all responsibility on
"6. Let him read any printed matter he can get his
hands on. Be careful that the silverware and drinking
glasses are sterilized, but let his mind feast on garbage.
"7. Quarrel frequently in the presence of your chil-
dren. In this way they will not be too shocked when the
home is broken up later.
"8. Give a child all the spending money he wants.
Never let him earn his own. Why should he have things
as tough as you had them?
"9. Satisfy his every craving for food, drink, and
comfort. See that every sensual desire is gratified. De-
nial may lead to harmful frustration.
"10. Take his part against neighbors, teachers, police-
men. They are all prejudiced against your child.
"11. When he gets into real trouble, apologize for
yourself by saying 'I never could do anything with him.'
"12. Prepare for a life of grief. You will be likely
to have it."
We propose a 13th rule: Assume that these rules ap-
ply to other parents, but not to you.
Kirkman Orders Emphasis On Driver's
License Check During Month of August
tory there were more registered
vehicles than licensed drivers in
Florida," said Col. Kirkman, "and
therefore strongly indicated that
many poeple are operating without
licenses or they are failing to pro-
perly renew their driver's licenses."
"In previous years," said Kirk-
man, "Troopers have found that
while checking for licenses many
drivers are found in violation of
other laws which in turn have
helped our over-all accident and

Something For The Girls
ji ^ by -Btq &Ckockse
Shower coming up? Spectacular food-that's your strategy for the
powder puff crowd. How about refreshing orange-ale punch to sip
while the gifts are being opened. You simply substitute gingerale
Eor water in the directions for diluting orange juice concentrate.
Gussie it up with a cherry and floating orange slice in every glass.
Then a real dazzler for dessert Josephines, maybe. They're the
short pie version of the French pastry, Napoleon, with individual
servings ready ahead. Or for an ultra-ultra strawberry shortcake,
swoop in with Imperial Angel on a pretty platter-cake slices cir-
cling the bowl of topping. And leave it to the girls to serve them-
1 cup Bisquick
/ cup butter or margarine
;3 tablespoons boiling water
:V teaspoon vanilla
1 package (about 31 ounces)
vanilla pudding and pIe
SEasy Creamy Icing (next col.)

quick and butter in bowl. Add
water and vanilla and stir vigor-
ously with fork until dough
forms a ball and cleans the
bowl. Dough will be puffy and
soft. Pat dough into twelve 3x2-
inch oblongs on baking sheet.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes. Cool. Pre-
pare pudding and pie fillings as
directed on package and chill.
Just before serving, fill each
two oblongs with chilled pud-
ding; frost top with icing and
'sprinkle with chopped nuts. 6
Easy Creamy Icing: Mix 1 cup
confectioners' sugar, a pinch of
salt, teaspoon vanilla and
liquid to make easy to spread
(about 1 tablespoon water or
1/ teaspoon cream).
To whip up Imperial Angel,
bake angel food cake mix as di-.
rected on package. Cool and
cut into 12 slices. Wash, hull
and slice 1 quart fresh straw-
berries. Refrigerate. Whip 1
package (2 ounces) dessert top-
ping mix; fold in 2 teaspoons
grated orange peel and 1 tea-
spoon almond extract. Cover
and refrigerate. Just before serv-
ing, drain strawberries; fold into
whipped topping. Serve over
cake slices. 12 servings.
Keep two pots going for scads
of coffee. And you'll reign se-
rene at shower time!

Manager of the Panama City Soc-

Florida Medical Association Offers
Solution to Ambulance Service Problem
JACKSONVILLE, July 18 In
response to concern expressed by
physicians and hospitals over the
discontinuance of ambulance ser-
vice in several Florida counties,
the Florida Medical Association to-
day suggested a solution to the pro-
In a policy statement by the ex-
ecutive committee of its Board of
Governors, the FMA suggested that
independent ambulance operators
(largely funeral establishments)
continue to provide service through
franchise-subsidy agreements with
county or city governments to com-
pensate operators for services
rendered to those unable to pay.
The, medical group said such an
arrangement would be much more
efficient and economical than am-
bulance services operated in con-
nection with fire or police depart-
The FMA termed "desired and
necessary" the Florida law requir-
ing all ambulance attendants to
have first aid training.
Deploring difficulties arising
from government wage and hour re-
gulations that "so affect under-
taking establishments that they can
no longer afford to provide am-
bulance service," the FMA com-
mended the funeral homes saying,
in part, "they deserve great public

Ga denying, In Florida...
Transplanting azaleas in summer
is like a tiff \ ith the wife both
can have a pleasant ending if you
Since the temperament of plants
is more predictable, here are a few
tips on winning a battle with na-
But, before you dig up the first
rootlet, be sure to size up the
situation. This includes the rea-
sons for moving the flowering
shrub and where you will move it.
Some folks discover that teen-
age azaleas are cluttering up the
bedroom windows and providing
hiding places for peeping Toms.
Others swear that the rotting
mulch around the plants gives
their home halitosis that even
their best friends wonder about.
It is for sure the shrubs, snug-
gling close to the house, promote
damp, moldy growth that rots off
ends of boards faster than you can
save to pay for replacements.
Roaches and other house-hunting
insects often use azalea mulch as
their base of attack and invade
when your best company can wit-
ness and spread embarrassing ru-
A neighbor took all the above
reasons in stride and vowed ,to
keep her azaleas around her home
until she discovered that a small
snake used the shrubs as a ladder
to climb atop a -window ledge to
bask in the sun.
The first step in moving an aza-
lea is to use a length of rope to
gather up the skirt-like branches
into a tight bundle around the
main trunk limbs. This permits
digging a sizeable ball of earth and
main roots without snipping off
outer branches that contain next
spring's flower buds.
With a grub-hoe begin a trench
around the base of. the plant at
least 12 inches from the main
limbs. Dig the trench deep enough
to cut below all the runner roots,
then with a shovel undermine
the plant until it is supported by
only a toadstool column of earth.
Slide the excavated plant onto a
trash cart for transportation to the
Replanting the azalea in a group
near a long line of a hedge will
help to break up the monotony of
the hedge and give a flash of
spring color, says Agricultural Ex-
periment Station ornamental horti-
If the new planting site is cover-
ed with sod, remove the sod for
use on sandy spots of lawn, or bet-
ter yet, place the sod in the old
Next, dig a hole larger and deep-
er than the ball of earth of the
plant. In digging the hole, keep
the richer top soil separate from
the poor dirt in the bottom of the
Prior to placing the shrub in the
hole, add a sizeable quantity of
well rotted organic material and a
handful of azalea fertilizer. Mix
this well with a scattering of top
soil, then adjust the bottom of the
hole mixure so that the azalea will
sit at the same level in its new lo-
cation as it did near the house.
Now, add a few shovelfuls of top
soil around the plant and wash
the loose earth down into the roots
with a generous supply of water.
Repeat the process until the hole
is almost filled, then form a water
basin around the base of the plant
and fill this basin with well rotted
mulch. Oak leaf mold is fine.
Next soak the roots of the plant
until you become alarmed at the
size of next month's water bill. Ap-
ply water daily or when the plant
gets an 11:00 o'clock droop. To pre-
vent the mid-day droop, apply a
fine mist of water to the leaves of
the plant as needed.
With this approach and a bit of
luck, your azaleas won't drop a
leaf. Of course planting just be-
fore a week-long rainy spell is
added insurance. For a schedule of
the next rainy spell, contact your
local weather bureau.
Teacher Attends Course
John T. Brown, Social Studies
teacher at George Washington
High School is attending a leader-
ship on desegregated school sys-
tems course currently under way
at the University of Miami.
The institute is dealing with
more than the desegregation prob-
lem as such. It is also concerning
itself with upgrading professional
competencies of the participants.
Each participant will be admin-
istered a battery of test.
In addition to the tests, each
person will be required to enroll
in a course for the remainder of
the seven week term.
Instruction is being given on
how to pass the N.T.E. It is an in-
tensive program and each day is
full of scheduled activities.
Most of the participants are
from Dade County public school
systems. However, St. Lucie, Mar-
tin, Highlands and Gulf Counties
are also represented.
