Bob Fox reported that his water
and sewer department had made
a preliminary survey for the city
to provide water and sewer ser-

He reported that. a rough estimate
of water services would run in the

Port St. Joe High School Is
Cleared for Accreditation
Word was received yesterday by
Principal Allen Scott- that the Florida
Committee of the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools, had recom-
mended that the Port St. Joe High
School be placed back on the accredited
list of the Southern Association.
At the beginning of the present
school year, Dr. Vincent McGuire, chair-
man of the Florida committee visited
the local high school to inspect certain
improvements that had been required by
the Association before accreditation
could be granted. Dr. MeGuire said,
at that time, that he would recommend
accreditation if certain qualified teach-1
ers could be obtained before the Florida
committee met about three weeks ago.
The teachers were obtained a. few. days
before the meeting, and the local school
has been awaiting the verdict ever since
Final Decision This Month
Tuedsay's letter said that Port St.
Joe's case will come up before the an-
nual meeting of the Southern Associa-
tion to be held near the last of this
month in Miami..
Port St. Joe High was removed
from the Southern Association accredi-
tation list last fall due to lack of pro-
per facilities for the lunch room, li-
brary, guidance counsellor, shower and
locker facilities and teachers out of
field. Since that time, a new cafeteria
has been constructed, the library doub-
led in size, a guidance office suite pro-
vided and the proper percentage of tea-
chers teaching "in field". No work has
been done of the shower and locker fa-
cilities because of plans to construct a
new high school complex.

Log Truck Rams Draw
Span; Damages Bridge
Ralph Clinton Taunton, age
about 45 of Wewahitchka, suffered
a broken leg as he jumped from
a run-away log truck at the White
City bridge Monday afternoon, ac-
cording to Florida Highway Pa-
trolman Ken Murphy.
Taunton was approaching the
bridge from Wewahitchka with a
trailer load of paper wood logs
and the bridge was open. A boat
had just gone under the bridge and
the draw span was on the way
down. Taunton saw that the bridge
would not make it down in time
for him to drive across so he jump-
ed from the truck 35 feet before
reaching the open span.
The truck went under the open
span into the water and the span
got down just in time to catch the
front of the log trailer. The impact
of the load of logs jammed the
bridge, making it inoperable.
Taunton was taken to the Port
St. Joe Municipal Hospital by a
Comforter Funeral Home ambu-
lance and later transferred to a
Panama City hospital for extensive
treatment of a badly mangled leg.
Water Traffic Stopped
After the wreckage was cleared
away Monday afternoon by Alton
Hardy and James Johnson of the
Florida Forest Service, the draw
span was worked into position, but
the collision side of the span was
two to three inches above the road
bed as a result of the collision. At
present the bridge is closed to wa-

PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1966
The Two-Party System Is Born
Thank God, it's over with the election we mean.
While elections are necessary. welcomed every two
years and entered into enthusiastically by many of the
population, elections, nevertheless, play a disturbing part
in our everyday lives, especially in a state where a two
party system is trying to flex its muscles.
Florida has had a trying year due to elections. A
Republican force was felt in nearly every county for the
first time in many cases. Republicans offered a serious
threat in several offices and promise for more formidable
opposition in the years to come.
While we believe this advent of the two party system
will be good for the politics of the state, the introduction
is about like taking a dose of castor oil. especially for
One thing this year's introduction of the "Republican
ogre" proved, was that Republicans are people and do not
have horns. As a matter pf fact, some of them are very
nice people and we believe this will be driven home more
in the future.
This introduction will probably spell a decimation to
some extent of the Democratic party. Many people in the
state are registered Democrats, simply because they must
be to register their vote come election time. Multitudes of
others are Democrats simply because the Republicans were
in power during and after the Civil War, and their families
have necessarily been Democrats for generations ... will-
ing them this legacy so to speak.
By far the'majqrity of Democrats will not change. We
will keep our Democratic affiliations, but, we will also be
thankful to see an opposing force to keep the Democratic
party honest in its dealings with the people. One must now
run on a platform, rather than merely get a Democratic
nomination. We believe this is extremely good. The peo-
ple of Florida should benefit greatly by it.
Flori da has been growing in this direction ever since
Harry Truman ran for president and has been spreading
ever since. The transition will not, in all probability, be
complete by, the next election, but another step will be

Is it alright for a Christian to be
a social drinker?
This question is one of great con-
troversy in the Christian family
of to-day. Yet this need not be a
problem for the Bible answer is
clear to any earnest heart that
seeks God's will in the matter.
Lord willing, we shall share the
Scripture's teaching on the sub-
ject, from the beginning to the
end of the problem.
Turn in your Bibles to Habakkuk
2:15 "Woe unto him that giveth
his neighbour drink, that puttest
thy bottle to him, and makes him
drunken also, that thou mayest
look on their naked-ness!" now
verse 16, "Thou art filled with
.shame for glory: drink thou also
..... the cup of the Lord's right
Hand shall be turned unto thee,
and shameful spewing shall be on
thy glory." Notice in particular this
verse deals with those who provide
-drink (intoxicating beverages) even
though that person may not par-
The question' now is: who is a
provider? The manufacturer pro-
vides it for the wholesaler, the
wholesaler provides it for the deal-
er, the dealer provides it for the
public to buy and partake. Yes!
Mom and Dad, those who keep it
in their homes, are providers/They
provide it for their friends, and
alas, alas, they are making it availa-
ble to their children. The fact that
it is in the home puts the parents-
approval on it, yet the parent has
no knowledge what misery will be
brought unto their children in
years "to come, by the fact they
were a provider.
God knows the result of this. He
has recorded in His word, the warn-
ing to all providers that His right
arm is against them. Therefore,
we can, on the authority of Scrip-
ture, make this conclusion. Minis-
ters, Elders, Deacons, Stewards,
Teachers, and Parents are in dis-
obedience to God when they are a
provider of 'alcoholic beverages.
Even though they themselves, may
not partake. Perhaps you never
understood this before.
Often'this subject is avoided in
some of our churches. Let us not
waste time on past mistakes that
can not be changed, Let's rather
correct the problem as of now, and
go forward with the purpose of
heart to honor our Lord in all
things and be obedient to His

Let's Try Chivalry
We read a piece the other day about the Maori tribes-
men of New Zealand and the wonderful chivalry they tradi-
tionally displayed inr battle. As an example of this, the
piece told of a battle the Maoris once fought with the Bri-
tish. The British ran out of ammunition and, when the
Maoris learned of this, they divided their own remaining
ammunition with them so that the fight could continue.
Think this over and you'll find it suggests a possible
means of ending the war in Vietnam. Granted, we have
been showing a certain amount of chivalry to Ho Chi Minh
and those who are making it possiblpfor him to prosecute
the war. We allow his allies to deliver war supplies to
him. We are careful not to aim our bombs at anything
worth more than the bombs themselves. And at the drop
of a hint from anyone, anywhere, we stop bombing alto-
We demonstrate sporadic chivalry, too, as beatniks
open up their veins and bleed for the Communists in the
Viet Cong, while certain pacifists groups collect bundles
for the same reds whose only transgression is that they
slaughter defenseless South Vietnamese civilians and any
American and South Vietnamese soldiers who try to stop
However, that intermittent kind of chivalry is not
enough. What we need is a united front kind of chivalry,
that will permit us to share everything we have, fifty-fifty,
with the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese. So far we
have begged, coaxed, pleaded, cajoled and groveled before
Ho Chi Minh, asking him, please, to come to the negotiating
table to see how generous we can be. But we haven't given
him anything in advance. Giving him half of our war sup-
plies in advance just might make the difference in his atti-
tude. It would also hasten the disarmament policy .that the
Administration is committed to.
There is one consideration that should be mentioned:
the piece said that there aren't many Maoris left. Presum-
ably their chivalry got the better of them.
Too Late To Classify

As a youngster while swimming
free in the Atlantic, Soapy, the big
bull porpoise, now a captive at the
Seaquarium in Miami, used to work
for his dinner. He-had the git-up
and go that enabled him to out
smart and out swim smaller fish
he needed for sustenance.
In 1958, Soapy was captured and
became a resident of the Seaquar-
ium. Since then he has been fed
five meals a day of the choicest
fish and in return had only to
jump and do a belly flop for the
entertainment of customers.
Recently Soapy developed a'
mean streak. He moped around, re-
fused to even jump and made life
miserable for other porpoises in
the tank. Reluctantly, the general
manager of the Seaquarium decid-
ed such behavior could not be tol-
erated. He decided to return Soapy
to the open sea. I
But Soapy had not had to catch
his own fish for eight years. He
'had grown fat and lazy, weighed
545 pounds and was 9 feet 3 inches
long. Like folks who have experi-
enced the pleasure of having the
government feed and care for them
Soapy was in no condition to shift
for himself. It was feared that if
released he would starve to death.
Then Miss Janice Malavenda, a
Miami High School student, cur-
rently working at the Seaquarium
under a unique laboratory re-
search program of Dade County
Schools came up with the sugges-
tion that Soapy be trained to re-
spond to a dinner bell when he
was hungry and she was authoriz-
ed to attempt to train him. If
Soapy learns to answer the dinner
bell and remains in the Biscayne
Bay area of the Seaquarium he
need never be hungry.
Mammals noted for their intel-
ligence have learned to come when
called as we all have observed in
watching "Flipper" on television.
Porpoises have learned to do an
amazing-number of tricks and they
seem to understand their trainers
instructions with little difficulty.
The Navy has been experiment-
ing with them and have success-
fully trained porpoises to carry
tools and messages to teams of
Navy divers camping out in the
Navy's Sea Lab I program.
Experiments are now under way
to see if they can be trained to
spot and report undersea craft,
distinguishing enemy from friendly
subs. In the Navy program at the
Bahamas, porpoise swimming free
in the area have been trained to
come promptly whqn called with an
underwater pinger, a device that
produces pings audible to the por-
Miss Malavenda hopes to train
Soapy so that he will become a
rival of Flipper and she hopes the
day will come when he will have
top TV billing. While Soapy can't
seem to get along with other por-
poist in the tanks he may prove
to be an outstanding loner when it
comes to a professional TV career.

Midget Investments That Yield
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
AN OPEN LETTER TO MR. BALL
Dear Mr. Ball,
It comes to our attention this week on the streets of
Port St. Joe, that you own this newspaper.
No doubt this comes as much a surprise to you as it
did to me. All these years I thought I was the one pay-
ing the mortgage on this newspaper to eventually assume
full ownership, which I thought I did two years ago.
Now, I hear different. Since I made all the mortgage
payments, ,how did you obtain ownership of this news-
paper? I'm curious to know, and I'm sure you are, too.
If you have, somehow, gained ownership of The Star,
Mr. Ball, I thought I would call to your attention, that
there are several unpaid bills in my (or is it your) desk
drawer that need your attention right away. Also, I have
been paying your taxes for several years now, and a new
tax bill came in the other day. Do you want to take care
of that, or shall I assume (as I have for 14 years) that I
am the owner and go ahead and pay these new tax bills
Also, Mr. Ball, I would like to point out that your
printing plant (I thought all the time it was mine) needs
some new machinery. While I was under the impression
that it was mine, I have made do with what I was able to
afford, but since I learn that you own The Star, I think
you should provide all new up-to-date equipment, like you
do the box plant and the paper mill. We just thought we
would bring this to your attention.
I also have heard that you like to keep up to date with
the condition of "your" properties and I would like to
report that there is a leak in the roof. Would you have
it fixed at the earliest possible time? I have sort of been
waiting until I could afford it, but since you are reported
to own the place, I will lay this burden on your shoulders.
And, as a last request, Mr. Ball, since you are reported
to own this newspaper, would you please reimburse me for
all of the money I have put into the building, equipment
and labor to print "your" newspaper for these 14 years.
The expenditure has been considerable, and I would like
If, as I suspect, you do not own this newspaper, please
disregard this letter.
Yours very truly,

Medicare Enrollment Mu!
65th Birthday For Full I
"Many individuals who are now
reaching age 65 are losing some of
the protection under medicare,"
John V. Carey, District manager
of the Panama City Social Security
Office, said today. Enrollment
must be before the 65th birth
month if both parts of medicare
are to be effective during the4
month the individual
"An individual should enroll for
medicare sometime during the
der both parts of medicare for the
full month he reaches 65. More
than 34 percent of people who have
attained age 65 since July 1, 1966
have failed to enroll for medicare
before their 65th birth month. (The
Social Security Administration con-
siders that a person reaches age
65 the day before the birthday an-
niversary. Accordingly, an indivi-
dual whose birthday falls on the
first day of a month attains hism
65th birth month the month be-
tree month perio befiore his 65th

tor bills in that month," Carey con-
tinued. If an individual does not
enroll within the three month per-
iod following his 65th birthday, he
cannot enroll for that part of med-
icare that pays doctor bills until
October 1967. If he must wait until
October 1967 to enroll, the part
of medicare that pays doctor bills
cost more than $3.00 a month, and
the protection will not be availa-
ble until July 1968. A number of
people have failed to enroll within
the above time limit and must
wait until October 1967.
Although medicare enrollment
can be accomplished during the
seven month period including the
65th birth month, Carey stressed
the importance of enrolling in the
three month period before the
65th birth month.
There are many reasons for con-
tacting your nearest Social Securi-
ty office during the three month
period before your 65th birth
month, and proper enrollment un-
der medicare is one very impor-
tant reason, Carey concluded. Don't
lose the full protection available
under medicare by waiting too
long. The Social Security office
for this area is located at 1135 Har-
rison Avenue, Panama City, Flor-
ida 32401. The telephone number is
763-5331. The office is open Mon-
day through Thursday from 8:30

cept on national holidays. The

Postmaster Costin Announces Holiday
Mailing Schedules for Overseas Mail
Postmaster Chauncey Costin of
Port St. Joe this week announced
that henceforth all first class mail,
personal sound recordings and par-
cels weighing less than five pounds
and measuring not more than 60
inches in length and girth combin-
ed, will be airlifted on a space
available basis between the United
States and all military post offices

tary, will be airlifted from San
Francisco to the armed forces serv-
ing in Viet Nam.
Postmaster Costin explained that
parcels weighing five pounds or
less and not exceeding 60 inches
in length and girth combined, paid
at surface rates, will be moved by
surface transportation within the
United States from the points of
mailing to the port of embarkation.
To speed up separation and de-
livery of these small parcels fall-
ing within this category, Postmas-
ter General Lawrence F. O'Brien
directed that all parcels be clearly
marked upon acceptance at the
post office with the letters SAM
(surface airlift mail).
This will eliminate the task of
reweighing and measuring the par-
cels at the San Francisco Concen-
tration Center prior to dispatch to
Viet Nam or other overseas mili-
tary post offices.
Postmaster Costin also reminded
mailers that Christmas parcels
weighing five pounds and under,

Bob Congleton, chairman of the
Girl Scout Fund Drive, spoke to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday at their
noon meeting in behalf of the
Congleton stated that it is the
responsibility of adults to provide
for youngsters. He said that every
child who makes a success of his
life has many helping adult hands
helping along the way. He urged
participation in the Girl Scout
fund drive as a means of providing
some of these helping hands.
Congleton admitted that it is al-
most impossible to see immediate
results from such an investment as

the "long haul" attested to the
value of the movement in prepar-

Have You Asked Yourself
Why should you travel extra miles and use uj
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs than in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
How can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the morley coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches
hospital, and other community facilities?
ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid
and contributions made by our local business peo-
ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build a
better community for you.

Although the two banks in the
county could not bid on the cer-

jointly with the county, to pur-
chase the certificates at 5.5% in-
erest. This negotiation is permis-
sible since no bids were received.
Ask for Road Money
The Board agreed to send a re-
solution to the State Road Depart-
ment to return the seventh cent
gasoline back-to the county each
year. At present the county re-
ceives 20% of this tax by way of
the secondary road funds. If grant-

would receive in the neighborhood
of $100,000 annually from this
source for road work.

The Gulf County Commission
made their first payment on the
new courthouse construction costs
Tuesday during their regular meet-
ing session. The Board approved a
bill of $52,208.19 to Guin and Hunt,
the contractor, for work to date
and materials purchased.
The contractor also asked the
Board for a 30 day extension. He
asked for 10 days due to incle-
ment weather and 20 days due to
a delay in setting piling. The pil-
ing delay came when piling as it
was originally designed burst un-
der the load test due to the fact
that they went through about 12
feet of muck on the East wall of
the new building. Delay was in-
curred to get approval of a rein-
forced piling for this area.
Architect Joseph A. Donofro re-
ported at Tuesday's meeting that
the reinforced piling were meet-
ing the tests in the trouble area.
The architect said that the addi-
tional reinforcement would not
cost the entire $1,500 additional
allotted for the job.
