"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chaftahoochee Valley"
TWENTY--NINTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, 32456 THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 1966 NUMBER 48
Set On Road
The :County Commission was
presented with a resolution Tues-
day froi the Port St. Joe Mer-
chant's sDivision urging that body
to set up:a road building program
..and boid the County's Secondary
Road fumds to pay for the program.
The reslution asked that this be
-'done in fear that the monies would
be lost" to the county after the
next session of the Legislature.
County Commissioners Leo Ken-
nedy aid Walter Graham have
-been suggesting such a move for
the last,iseveral meetings, but the
other Commissioners, Chairman
James McDaniell, T. D: Whitfield
and James Horton are undecided,
as yet, in the matter.
After presentation of the reso-
lution Tuesday, the Board voted to
hold public hearings next week to
let the citizens of the county ex-
press themselves in the matter.
Two meetings have been set up
for discussion of the question. The
first meeting will be held in the
Council Chambers of the Port St.
Joe City Hall Monday night at 8:00
p.m. The second meeting will be
held in the Courthouse in Wewa-
hitchka Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m.,
If the county bonds the Second-
ary Road Funds, and the Legisla-
ture re-distributes the funds on a
population basis, Gulf County's
share would be greatly reduced,
but the State would have to as-
sume the obligation of paying off
all bonds obligated prior to a
,change in distribution of the funds.

TJE MAJORITY IS HEARD
Almost every week for the past several years, you
have been able to pick up a newspaper, turn on a television,
or a radio set and have in black type or blaring sound, the
antics of about five percent of the kids in the nation.
They are either tearing up the town on motorcycles,
throwing beer parties in somebody's home while they are
gone, making life miserable for residents of some resort
town, rioting, parading, picketing, demonstrating, or in
some various way or ways making themselves obnoxious.
And we shake our head and mutter, "what is the youn-
ger generation Coming to".
We do well to shake our heads at such goings on ...
but it has been made clear to us on numerous occasions
that we cannot begin to indict all young people by the ac-
tions which make the headlines across the nation.
Last week, the teen agers of America showed their
mettle. They rose up, almost en masse, to. protest the
utterings of that pseudo "typical young person" the Bea-
tie ... who proclaimed that they were more popular than
Jesus Christ. He even went so far as to say that the
current "music" craze would outlast Christianity.
Those "typical young people" did a lot that us older
ones didn't approve the foremost of which was in
refusing to get a decent haircut in their rise to the
fame they enjoy.
Teenagers over the nation have taken issue with this
latest offering of the Beatles. They have backed them
down into a corner by twisting that part of the anatomy
where twisting does the most good the pocketbook.
In disapproving by the unique method of boycotting their
records and concerts, the youth of America have also
proven that the Beatles are more interested in making
money than they are in "telling the message" of the "new
movement in music". This should further disillusion
their young followers.
In taking their stand, the youth of our Nation have
shown us older citizens a trick or two. They have shown
us that all we have to do to get rid of an unwanted pest
is to stop patronizing those places or things with which
we cannot agree or hold to be injurious to our moral
So, old folks re-evaluate your opinion of the
"younger generation" re-evaluate your own stand in
connection with those things which you do not hold to be
in the best interest of the morality of our nation and see
just where the "delinquency" lies.
THAT OTHER PERCENT
President Johnson, .commenting on the recent upsurge
of riots across the country, said he thinks most of that
"majority of 90 percent who are not Negroes" want to see
"equality and justice given their fellow citizens," but that
they want to "see it done under the law without vio-
With some reservation about the President's choice
of words, we agree with his statement. But we do think
it is just as true of most of that ten percent "negro mi-
nority" of which he spoke, as it is of that 90 percent "ma-
jority who are not Negroes." We admit to some puzzle-
ment, however, when anyone persists in referring to per-
sons of on or another color as a group, as though to set
them apart from other races.
We wonder, too, since he believes that 90 percent of
the citizens-at-large disapprove of such violence as has
happened recently, if the President has checked to see, if
that percentage holds among the top officials of his own
administration. At least two of them have made state-
ments recently which, in our opinion, not only condone
rioting but actually encourage more of it.
Vice-President Humphrey said in New Orleans on July
18 that if he had to live in areas such as those where riots
were then going on: "I think you'd have more trouble than
you have had already, because I've got enough spark left
in me to lead a mighty good revolt under those con-
Secretary Weaver, of HUD (Department of Housing
and Urban Development) said in a TV interview on July
21 that the only thing he found hard to understand about
the riots is "why there haven't been more of them, and
No doubt there will be more riots, with encouragement
like that from on high. Even if the Vice-President does-
n't lead any of them personally, both he and the secretary
of HUD are certainly leading the trouble-makers on by
such remarks as the above. At the same time, they are
belittling and insulting the majority of people who do, or
did, live in the riot-torn areas and who neither wanted
nor contributed to the violence.
Before Mr. Johnson can hope to "give" any of us
equality and justice "without violence," it seems to us
that he'll have to change some percentages within his
own official family, increasing those who are against riots
and reducing those who seem to be all for them.
GETTING OFF TOO LIGHT
When Rep. William C. Cramer of Florida says "alco-
holism is a contributing factor in a strikingly large per-
centage of (traffic) accidents," he has the support of
the National Safety Council.
Studies indicate, the Safety Council points out, that
"drinking may be a factor in as many as half of the fatal
motor vehicle accidents."
Mr. Cramer remarks that alcoholism's "effect on and
relation to highway safety is indeed a complex subject."
This remark by the Florida congressman invites the
observation, we think, that the subject is made no less
complex by the number of drunken driving cases which
end up in the courts nolle pressed, dismissed or reduced
to reckless driving or speeding.
Every drunken driver who gets off too light means
less protection for the public safety. It is a public mis-
fortune that a lot of drunken drivers get off too light.
GCJC Outlines Many
Another close bond between
Gulf and Bay Counties was esta-
blished Tuesday morning of last
week when educational boards
in both counties approved a re-
quest for Gulf County to become
a participating county in the
operation and support of Gulf
Coast Junior College.
The request, initiated by the
Gulf County Board of Public In-
struction and the Bay County
Board of Public Instruction, now
goes-to the State Junior College
Board for finial approval.
Officials in both counties, how-
ever, have expressed full expec-
tations that the State Junior Col-
lege Board will give full approval
to the move.
"We are looking forward to a
mutually beneficinial affiliation

Do you ever have "That Kind of Week"?
Last week was "That kind of week" with us.
Since our week begins on Thursday morning, we will go back
to two weeks ago today. It was hotter than a two dollar pistol and
one of our air conditioners quit. This was the start of "That kind
Monday, somebody ran into our automobile, smashed in a door
and didn't come look us up to say "excuse me". They just took off.
Tuesday we came back from dinner to find the melting pot on
our linotype machine getting cold. If you know anything about
linotype machines, you know this is catastrophe. This puts the ma-
chine out of business. And if you know even less about linotype
machines, we will explain that it means no type will be set, until
the pot can be persuaded 'to heat up again. After about an hour and
a half of probing, tinkering, examining and testing, we were just
about to pick up the hammer when we found a stuck solenoid switch
that had failed to activate the magnetic switch, which in turn failed
to turn on the heating element when the said element had sent out
the message that it was getting cold and wanted the furnace turned;
on. We finally persuaded the solenoid to begin work again but
only after losing about three hours of type setting time, which
amounts to about five to six columns of type for the paper.
Then it rained the last of the week and a leak, which we had
paid $75.00 to have fixed, showed up worse than ever.
Such is life!
Mr. Whitman had hardly been carried down from the tower
of the University of Texas at Austin Monday, when Senator
Thomas Dodd renewed his quest for a firearms control act.
If this act passes, we can imagine the application for pur-
chase of a firearm will read something like this:
"Do you plan to use this firearm to commit murder?" (An-
swer 'yes' or 'no'). _"Do you plan to use this weapon to threaten,
shoot' at, or kill the President of the United States or any other
government official?" (Answer 'yes' or 'no'). "Do you plan to use
this firearm in an attempt to overthrow the U. S. Government
or provide this weapon to any person with such intentions? (An-
swer 'yes' or 'no').
And then printed at the bottom of the form will be the ad-
monition, "Failure to answer these questions truthfully may result
in your imprisonment for one year or a $500.00 fine."
Now, that ought to really stop the mis-use of firearms.
It might not feel too much like it outside, but the signs of fall
are beginning to appear.
The signs are an occasional story in the papers concerning the
world series football is beginning to re-appear on television
and the schools are beginning to announce pre-school programs.
Let it come I've had my fill of summer for a year.
Another sure sign of fall's approach is the exodus of "company".
For the past month, we have had company from two to
four all the time. One night about two or three weeks ago, we slept
13 kids at our house ours and others. One day for dinner, there
were 10 hungry young mouths sitting at the table.
Frenchie said, "You ought to be thankful you can feed so
many." Who said I could?
The,other day, Frenchie came home with one of those new,
fancy hair-dos. She proceeded to tell me that I would have to
sleep on the other side of the bed, because if she slept on her sidis
it would flatten out the wrong side of her hair.
I can understand why she would want my side of the bed, be-
cause I have that-mattress wallowed out just right to sleep good.
But can you imagine the nerve of a wife telling her husband he
will have to give up his side of the bed just because of an old hair-do?
I hope it doesn't take as long to make her side "sleepable" as
it did mine.
What do you think of a fellow like Trooper Ken Murphy?
He has built himself a water fountain or it was supposed
to be a water fountain. Murphy labored hard and long on the
plans for his water fountain to put in his yard. He worked out
every detail to a fine point. Then he labored hard and long to
build this water fountain.
Came Saturday, and "turning on" day. We are told that Clio
Atkison's band was on hand to render appropriate music and
capped it off with the "Star Spangled Banner". The President
was invited to say a few appropriate words, but begged off at the
last minute because of some engagement or other in Washington.
Murphy used his "pull" to have the police and Sheriff's Depart-
ment on hand to handle the crowd at the "turning on". The water
was turned on with a flourish and it shot over the foun-
tain into the yard. The fountain and the water couldn't get toge-
ther. Now he has a fountain with no water in it.
Oh well, back to the old drawing board.

tles and Use Taxes
He explained, however, that the
impact of the strike on the state's
economy was not fully reflected
in the July figures because they
were compiled from a sale period
prior to the strike.
Gasoline tax collections for July
totaled $13,671,412 and Florida's
five per cent wholesale sporting
goods tax garnered $158,261 during
the same period said Dickinson.
In the major category of sales
and use taxes, Dickinson said re-
cords of the State Revenue Com-
mission indicated a dollar increase
of 1,567,921 over July collections of
1965 or a gain of 7.22 per cent.
Calendar year sales and use tax
collections to date total $177,967,
873 an increase of $14,026,964
over collections during a like per-
iod last year.
Gasoline tax collections for July
were up $838,039, or 6.53 uer cent
above July collections in 1965. Re-
venues from the sporting goods
tax were $9,636 or 6.48 per cent
over collections during the same
month last year, Dickinson noted.

future. And if any church or peo-
ple tell you that any thing they
can do has any help in opening
heavens door. They are teaching
uou the broad way that leads into
destruction. Many religions are
teaching to-day "we are all trying
to get to the same place, we are
just going different roads to
heaven". This is not true! Jesus
said:'"I am the way, the truth, the
life: NO MAN cometh unto the
Father, BUT BY ME" John 14:6.
Be careful, my friend, God is
going to judge you by HIS Word,
not by man's or by the Church's.
You have this life and this life a-
lone to prepare yourself for
heaven. Jesus said in John, Chapter
8, that if we do not believe in him
we will die in our sins and if we
die in our sins we cannot go where
The Bible tells us Jesus is in
Heaven. Therefore, there is no
hope for you if you die in your
sins, there is no second chance af-

Hottest Thing in Our Universe
The hottest thing in our universe is a pencil-thin beam of
light 100 times as intense as the light on the sun's surface.
It's the oddly-named "laser," one of the most exciting areas
of.scientific research in the world today.
What is a laser? And what does
First of all, the name stands for
"light amplification by stimulated
emission of radiation." It also
stands for an entirely new con-
ception of what light can do.
The first laser went into opera-
tion in 1960, thereby opening up
whole new possibilities for uses
of light. Light became a powerful
tool. It could carry messages over
vast distances, perform surgery
without cutting, make radar infin-
itely more precise, weld micro-
scopic wires. Even more startlingly,
the intense beam of laser light
could vaporize almost any known
Multi-millions of dollars have
been spent on laser research over
the past five years, much of it by
the United States Government.
More than 400 firms are playing
a part in this vital new field, and
some 50 different types of lasers
have been built. Of the lasers
commercially available, Union
Carbide markets the one with the
Lasers already in use include

Apple Ginger Dessert is a dessert that's rich yet light.
The ring itself offers an apple-wine tang from canned
apple sauce with sherry added. Then this is smoothed into
sour cream and cream cheese and gently firmed with gelatin.
For the top and bottom, gingersnaps are crumbed to richness
in melted butter and sugar. But there's more! The center
of the ring is heaped with frozen apple cream this,
simply canned apple sauce and whipped cream zipped with
grated lemon rind, then frozen.
So there's the dessert, smooth, creamy and butter-crumb
crisp. For sheer perfection, before serving treat it to several
hours of cool retirement in the refrigerator.

Gladiolus thrive best in a well-

To prepare a bed for planting,
cultivate throughly and remove all
weeds and trash. Mark off the rows
in the planting bed perhaps to
form a besign that will add addi-
tional beauty at blossoming time.
In well-drained or very sandy
soils place the corms at ground

Set the corms firmly into the

soil surface without harming the
root system. Water well after fer-
tilizing to carry the fertilizer into
the root zone.
To prevent disease, purchase
only clean, bright corms. Usually,
small corms, one inch in diameter,
are healthier than larger corms.
Dull, dark husks indicate old corms
which might carry disease.
If, in a lot of 100 corms, there
are more than two or three shivel-
ed by rot, it's best to make your
bulb purchase elsewhere.
If disease spots show up on
leaves of the plants, spray once a
week with zineb or maneb. This
will prevent the healthy plants
from getting infected:
In warm weather keep an eye
out for thrips. To control them ap-
ply a weekly bust of lindane, mal-

don't be too hasty cutting them
for home use. Allow at least two
lower florets to open fully before
cutting the spikes.
Gladiolus will last about a week
in the home. For this long lasting
beauty, keep the vases clean and
free of bacterial slime. Use one-
quarter teaspoon of Chlorox or
similar bleach in the water to con-
trol the bacteria.
Also, change the water in the
vase every third day and cut off
an inch or more of the base of the
stems at that time.
