Those grunts, groans, screams
and screeches you hear coming

not all on the football field.

would have cost the city $63.00 per

set by those to whom the Nation looks for leadership."
We agree with Mr. Sikes that those in authority need
to .exercise their authority in denouncing the lawlessness
through riots and such that permeates our nation today.
But, we would refresh Mr. Sikes' memory on a matter
of which we believe he is already aware-that unofficial
condoning of mob rule in the outset of objecting to the
status quo in the United States has led to these latter day
demonstrations, which are a far cry from mere demonstra-
tions against "the system" and a desire for a better life.
It appears from recent news accounts that the dissident
groups are now carrying on their distasteful practices as
sort of a means of recreation or an attempt to "take
over" the "good life" offered in our nation without first
having earned the good things of life. They do have a price
And we do not blame the Negro with the current state
of affairs. Some. Negroes, yes but many whites, too.
Mr. Sikes mentioned, the quieting down of the riots with
the nearness of election day, for fear some law makers may
find themselves on the outside looking in -if the riots con-
-tinue. Doesn't this hint at the notion that the riots are
-controllable by various lawmakers? If such is the case,
:and the lawmakers allow these disturbances to continue
.merely to promote their own political positions-they need
-to be voted out.
Our laws were made to protect every man in the na-
tion regardless of color or creed. Today as never before,
the law is bending over backward to see that the letter of
this intent is carried out and we find no quarrel with
that. Every man should have the right to pursue happiness
and the good life on an equal basis. But to try and de-
liberately tear down the only system in the world that will
allow such a free and unencumbered pursuit of the good
life, we believe, deserves the severest of punishment.,

wards the writing of this history
has been made I am unaware of
the endeavor. To further illustrate
the need, the story of Old St. Jos-
eph while quite colorful in Florida
history remains vague as to de-
tails. In, this respect I am remind-
ed of what ANRR train conductor
Steve McPhaul (now deceased)
once remarked, "People are never
interested in history while in the
making and only as events or im-
portant changes occurring in the
course of human affairs begin to
recede do we invest them with a
halo of romance, the present al-
ways seems commonplace, only the
past and future seem glamorous."
It would seem that, whenever
possible, history ought to be chron-
icled as it happens for the sake of
accuracy and the fullness of de-
tails. Personally, I know very lit-
tle of the beginning of Port St. Joe.
However, if you feel it of any in-
terest to your readers, particularly
the newcomers to the area since
1937, I would like to mention that
during my 'years there with the
railroad and its affiliates I observ-
ed from company records that the
road was completed from River
Junction to Apalachicola in 1907
and extended to Port St. Joe in the
fall of 1909, when work was begun
on the 2500, foot railroad pier into
St. Joseph Bay. The records indi-
cate that 'world export shipments
of lumber, naval stores and cotton

ing of the Swedish bark "Henriet-

wood" aid "Cycle" were next in

ping continued active until the
The City of Port St. Joe, located
two miles north of the site of Old
St. Joseph, was incorporated in
1910 after a townsite survey of the
wilderness area, lots sold, homes
built, etc. The railroad shops were
moved from Apalachicola and
completed in 1911. In the same
year an ice factory, electric plant
and water system that included
an artesian well, a depth of 700
feet, all came under construction.
Commercial fish houses, both
wholesale and retail, were located
on the railroad wharf, and fishing
boats and pleasure craft made
available to sportsmen and vaca-
tioners. The bay-front recreation
pier of the old Port Inn was a year
'round mecca for tourists and
homefolk alike. Park bandstand
concerts at frequent intervals were
most enjoyable. The Port Inn and
Woman's Club building provided
accommodations for social and
community gatherings and were
popular sites for orchestral dances,
drawing attendance from distant
towns and communities. The Bay-
view Theatre on Reid Avenue pro-

proud of. When the Sharks walked off a football field,
the opposing team usually were glad to get rid of them for

"Thus Saith The Lord"
By Rev. Bill Graham'
To continue our study of the
Holy Spirit we: shall, this week,
share ,the "sealing" of the Spirit.
Here again care must be exercised
that we do not confuse this minis-
try with others of the Holy Spirit.
The major reason we have so
much eroneous teaching in the
churches today, on the ministry of
the Holy Spirit, is that people fail
to distinguish, between various
ministries. To, make several min-
istries into one is to make a
"scrambled egg" religion.
Let us turn in our Bibles to
Ephesians 4:30, "And grieve not
the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye
are sealed unto the day of redemp-
tion." Several things are to.be no-
ticed in this verse. 1. The believer
is sealed by the Holy Spirit of
God. This then is the work of God.
He it is that does the sealing. No-
where is there any requirements
placed upon man of what "he"
must do. The sealing is ALL of
God. 2. The sealing is unto the
"day of redemption". Therefore it
is never removed or repeated. It
is an event that happens once in
the life of a believer and lasts un-
til the believer is with the Lord.
3. The Holy Spirit then, is sealing
the believer, is the believer's as-
surance of going to be with the
Lord when they leave this life.
When he (the believer) is sealed,
he is sealed in a redeemed state
until the Lord changes him into a
glorified state at the time the Lord
takes him to be with himself.
The question which arises is
fWhen is the believer sealed?" For
this answer we turn to Ephesians
1:13, 14: "In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word of
truth, the gospel of .your salvation;
in whom also after that ye believ-
ed, ye were sealed with that Holy
Spirit of promise, which is the ear-
nest of our inheritance until the
redemption of the purchased pos-
session, unto the praise of his

livedd, and tried to make it teach
that after a person is saved, at a
later date then they are sealed and
that this is a second blessing to
look for. This however is not true.
The Greek manuscripts render this
passage as "when ye believed".
When a person believes on the
Lord Jesus Christ as his personal
Saviour, that person receives' the
Holy Spirit, is baptized, regenerat-
ed, indwelled, and sealed at that
moment and forever. The Lord
never unregenerates, unbaptizes,
unindwells or unseals the believer.
These ministries listed above all
depend on the work, power and
faithfulhess of God. The phrase in
verse 14 above: "that holy Spirit
of promise, which is the earnest of
our inheritance until the redemp-
tion of the purchased' possession,"
has the same thought. The word
"earnest" in modern language
would be "down payment". In
other words, God is saying the
Holy Spirit, which is given until
the day when the Lord calls us
home, is a' down payment whereby
God promises the believer that His
final possession of the believer in
glory is a, sure thing. This truth
is also brought out in H Corin-
thians 1:21, 22.

Shown To Kiwanis
An interesting film was shown
to the Kiwanis Club Tuesday at
their. regular, moon meeting. The
film was entitled "Handling the
Unexpected" and dwelt with un-
expected hazards that come up
while driving and gave the au-
dience 15 seconds to decide the
right course of action to take. *
The film is used by the Kansas
State Highway Patrol to train dri-
vers to have the proper reactions
in time of unexpected emergencies.
Such problems were shown as a
car suddenly pulling out of a side
road, hitting ice on a bridge, skid-
ding, rounding a curve and seeing
the road blocked and being stuck

The reason for this problem, ac-
cording to Scott, is the salary and
increment (annual salary increase)
schedule in Gulf County schools.
He pointed out that beginning tea-
chers in 30 of Florida's counties

can in Gulf County with three
He reported that a survey made
statewide showed that the biggest
problems with the students is that
they are unable to read. He stated
that this was partly due to large
teacher loads in classrooms which
doesn't allow a :teacher to give the
necessary individual instruction in
the case of slow readers. Scott
pointed out that there are now 685
enrolled in Port St. Joe High
School and they expect 700 by the
end of the year for the 35 teach-
ers to instruct.
