Lloyd Beasley Is
Earns Bronze Star for Bravery
A former Port St. Joe resident,
Lloyd Evans Beasley, son of John
Beasley of this city, has been
awarded the Bronze Star for hero-
ism in the fighting in Viet Nam.
Beasley was presented the award
"Private First Class Beasley's
outstanding display of aggressive-
ness, devotion to duty, and per-
sonal bravery were in keeping with
the highest traditions of the mili-
tary service and reflect great cre-
dit oA himself, his unit, and the
United States Army".
Beasley's award came as the re-
suit of action on last May 21. An
extensive system of tunnels built
by the Viet Cong near the village
of Long Phuoc was discovered by
Beasley's outfit. It was heavily
mined and booby trapped and in
danger of collapsing because of
The tunnel system had to be
searched and mapped. Beasley vol-
unteered to lead a team under-
ground to do the job. -
Armed only with a small caliber
pistol and a flashlight, Beasley
and his team spent three days in
the tunnels. Every room and pas-
sage was searched. Dozens of mines
and booby traps were encountered,
and Beasley disarmed each as he
came to it.
As a result of his heroism Beas-
ley has been granted a four year
scholarship by-St. Leo College in
St. Leo, Florida.
Beasley is now back in Viet
Nam serving out a second tour of

Change Made In
Revival Service Time
1 The Long Avenue Baptist Church
announces a change in the time
schedule of the Friday night ser-
vice of the revival meeting now in
progress in their church. The
change in time for the Friday
night service is to avoid a conflict
with the football game between
Port St. Joe and Chavalla High.
Service at the local church will
begin tonight at 7:30. The Friday
night meeting will begin at 6:30
and those attending will have am-
ple time to get to the athletic
field before game time.
There will be no revival services
at the Long Avenue Church on Sat- 1
urday. The concluding services will
be held on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. I
and 6:30 p.m.
The Reverend Ray Grissett of I
Panama City is the guest minister
for the revival meeting. The Rev-
erend Lowell Crawford of Apala-
chicola is directing the revival 1
music. Everyone is invited to at-
tend these closing services of the a
revival meeting. The Church nur- c
sery is open to help take care of I

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Clemmons,
517 Third Street.
St. Joe's first football game pre-
sented the results of so many
performers graduating. The per-
formance was poor.
In face of all these obstacles
and the performance at the be-
ginning of the year, bandmaster
Jones said that he was more
than pleased with the "Excel-
lent" rating awarded Saturday
night. Jones said the rating was
unanimous from all the judges
with all demerits coming in the
the areas of balance and small
details such as turning corners,
staying in step, etc.
One of the judges listed on
his scoresheet that the program
presented by the local band was
too ambitious considering the
size of the school. Jones said
that it was intentionally ambi-
tious so that a rating would
mean more to the school when
it was earned.
The judges congratulated the
band on its excellent ideas in
formation and materials.
Bandmaster Jones said that
although the band did not earn
the coveted "Superior" rating,
the group still stands a chance
of going to the State contest in
the Spring. In March of next
year the band will enter a sight
reading and concert festival,
and a "Superior" rating in these
areas will earn them the right to
enter the state contest.

Computing Our Votes
It is increasingly evident that politicians are letting
computers do much of their thinking for them. Fed raw
materials in the form of public opinion polls, the electronic
brains meditate electronically, then tell the politicos what
we voters are likely to wanton the way of bread and circuses
and various kinds of benefits-unemployment, medical, old
age, fringe, poverty, etc.
The politicians, being politicians, go all out to oblige.
Which explains such slogans as "Vote for Glutz because
Glutz Can Do More For You." Or, "Elect Glatz Because
Glatz Can Get It For You."
Both parties, and some of our most celebrated indi-
vidual politicians, make extensive use of computers. The
Kennedys obviously have great faith in them, and the
famed LBJ consensus is not arrived at by ouija board.
The operation is pretty impressive when you stop to
think about it. Consider all the conflicting demands, from
people who pay taxes and from those who want that tax
money. And that's the main thing to consider, because
nowadays that kind of put and take is the warp and woof
There's just one thing lacking. So far we haven't heard
of any computer which takes into account certain basic
principles-such as patriotism, honesty and love of God.
Or, for that matter, the widely held belief that we have a
pretty good system going here, and one that is not likely to
be improved by injections of socialism or communism. Nor
so far as we know, does any computer record the fact that
most of us still feel that we ought to be able to run our
country without advice and consent from the international
set in evidence at the UN and elsewhere.
A properly programmed computer would show that
most Americans subscribe to MacArthur's dictum: "There
is no substitute for victory." It would show, too, that Berk-
eley,, New Haven, Greenwich Village and a few other noisy
hot spots are not taken as seriously by Americans as they
are by certain equally noisy politicians.
Someday, no doubt, a computer will be produced which
can evaluate all of these things, too. Meanwhile, the poli-
tician who ignores them does so at his own risk.
And meanwhile, too, we don't like the idea of having
our vote computed until we have cast it. The computer
niay be accurate in reporting that there are more people
who want to receive largess from the treasury than want
to pay taxes into the treasury. Indeed, the computer may
be right'every day of the year-except election day.
Band Has Winning Combination
Our local Port St. Joe High School Band is in the pro-
cess of rebuilding. All of the musicians are young. the
accomplished veterans having graduated last June. Over
50% of the experienced musicians of the organization grad-
uated, as a matter of fact.
Most everyone will recall their first public performance
of the year at the opening football game. And, most every-
one held their head, closed their eyes and refused to be-
lieve that the crack Port St. Joe band could be performing
But this was a new band, with but a bare two weeks to
practice together on a routine that was completely for-
eign to them.
We think that it is to the band's credit. and that of
their new leader, Hugh Jones, that the organization drew
itself up by its bootstraps, went to work and showed steady,
noticeable improvement with each performance. Saturday
the band proved its worth by taking an "Excellent" rating
.at the District marching and playing contest.
You might think it unbelievable that a performance
-given at the first of the school year could be parlayed into
:a winning combination in such a short time. It didn't
,come easily ... it came by hard work and much practice

A Neglected Asset
When a factory proposes to leave a small town, there
is consternation. Organizations are formed to encourage
local industries and to bring in new industries.
But one never hears of any community holding a spe-
cial meeting of its chamber of commerce in an effort to
prevent a superior young man or womain'irom leaving.
Bright men and women move out quietly, unmourned and
They are drawn to the large centers, where opportun-
ities are open for brains, initiative and originality.
The point I want to make is this: Suppose the chamber
of commerce of some town really undertook the job of
identifying and holding its brightest young men and wom-
en. Suppose it opened up jobs for them on completion of
their high school and college courses, even though the do-
ing of this caused some inconvenience and expense. Sup-
pose the bankers of the town gave these young men the
encouragement of a little extra backing. Might it not
turn out in the course of twenty or thirty years that this
town would show a remarkable growth?
Addressed to the Frustrated
The makers of the U. S. Constitution felt they had
done a rather poor job, but it seemed the best they were
able to muster under the circumstances.
When Thomas Jefferson took over as President of
the land in the election of 1800 there were many who felt
that the young nation had been its course, and that the
end was near.
Andrew Jackson shook the conservative nation to its
foundations when he took over as President. He was called
King Andrew, and it was not hard to find those who thought
the pride of the west had died young.
The election of Abraham Lincoln, and the Civil War
Which followed, strained the United States as nothing be-
fore or since has, but we came out of that terrible time a
,strong and united nation.
These are but a few of the prophecies of coming disas-
ter. It would pay us to check the results of these things,
and to forego any worrying over the present.
Work for, what you think it right, but do not allow
the politics of 1966 to make a basket case of you. Things
change, and it would be pretty bad if they didn't. So, relax,
and enjoy life. (Blountstown) County Record

The Boble reveals that this per..

in your Bibles to Romans 14:21:
"It is good neither to eat flesh nor
to drink wine, nor anything where-

fended, or is made weak." This
verse states very plainly that we
are not to do anything to cause a
Christian to stumble.
Even though that one drink may
not harm you, if it causes harm
in someone else's life, you are to
refrain from partaking. People
who look up to us and respect us
often pattern their habits after us.
This is good if our habits do not
cause harm to another' life,

Children have the opinion that
Mom and Dad are the greatest.
Often they have the idea that what
their parents do is right. Children

They copy their parents. For chil-

toward their destruction. Often the
children do not stop at' social

heartache, hurt, ruined bodies and

we sin when we indulge-even if
it is only one drink. Those who

We noticed in the Apalachicola Times that editor
Joe Maloney is still blaming the defeat of Robert King
High on to Ed Ball and Haydon Burns.
We wonder if he feels about the same about the Cali-
iornia election and the Illinois Senatorial election? All of
the more astute political observers feel that the victories
in all three states, plus the turn of events in Alabama and
Georgia is a backlash at the administration.
And, too, with all that power, wonder why Ball and
Burns didn't use their prowess to elect Burns, surely their
choice, in place of Kirk, who has openly defied Burns .
even worked against his election as Mayor of Jacksonville
. on several occasions?
It just doesn't hold water, Mr. Maloney.
What's happened to the Supreme Court? Did you
read Tuesday where a decision by them makes it unlaw-.
ful for demonstrators to trespass and disturb the peace
on public property.
Heavens to Betsy! How radical can you get?

The other night we awoke in the middle of the night
and there by the dresser in our bedroom was a subdued
glow. Thought number one that ran through my mind
was the rash of break-ins and killings around the nation
lately and we imagined a covered flashlight. Thought
number two was remembering cleaning out our pockets be-
fore going to bed and laying a two weeks accumulation of
collections $1.47 on the dresser.
We stumbled out of bed, still half asleep (as we usually
are until about 10:30 in the ayem) and advanced on the
glow. What it was, was a new electric alarm clock with
a glow dial that had been slipped into our abode secretly
by Ray and placed on our dresser to gently shock me awake
in the morning with a gentle, soothing, electric snarl.
And we felt silly.

How well posted are the youth
of this generation on basic matters
of health? In case you wonder (and
it's worth wondering about), you
may get some indication from an-
swers given recently by a panel
of high school students to ques-
tions asked by the public affairs
director of a large radio station.
Since the event took place at an
annual meeting of the National
Tuberculosis Association, some of
the questions naturally, centered
about that often grossly misunder-
Q. How much do you know about
A. "The only think I know is if
you have it, you have to move to
Arizona." (Wrong! Physicians have
found that climate has little to do
with recovery from TB. Drugs con-
stitute the core of modern treat-
Q. Do you ever have tuberculin
tests in your school?".
A. "Yes. A lot of kids are scared
of them. They think the tests might
show that they have TB." (Wrong
two ways! It's better to find out
early than to be "scared" of know-
ing. The earlier TB is found, the
better the chance for effective
treatment. However, a tuberculin
test doesn't show whether a person
has TB, but only whether he is in-
fected with the germ. He may be
infected without having active di-
sease-that's something a chest
X-ray helps determine.)
Q. What do you think causes tu-
A. "I think air pollution causes
TB." (Wrong! TB is caused by a
Ine other areas of health the
youngsters proved better, though
not really well informed. As 'to
TB, there is a widely held notion
that it belongs to past history. But
50,000 new cases each year prove
this notion sadly untrue. For infor-
mation about tuberculosis today,

When Florida's hunting season
opens on November 12 in all parts
of the state except northwest Flor-
ida and on November 19 in north-
west Florida, wildlife officers will
be faced with increased law en-
forcement responsibilities. Often
at this time of year it becomes
necessary for the officers to work
both night and day.
Commission Chairman, W. B.
Copeland, said, "Personnel of the
fish management division, hya-
cinth control section, and other
branches of the Commission have
been assigned to assist with law,
enforcement in areas where the
heaviest hunting pressure is ex-
pected. All male employees of the
Commission are commissioned
wildlife officers and while their
assigned duties may be in fields
other than law enforcement, they
are qualified to enforce the hunt-
ing and fishing laws."
Prospects for the hunting season
are excellent and sportsmen can
anticipate good hunting state-wide.

Forest Service Says Over 900,000
Pines Killed By Insects During Year
TALLAHASSEE, November 7,
An aerial survey recently com-
pleted by the Florida Forest Ser-
vice indicates that nearly 900,000
pine trees were killed by forest
insects this year.
"The survey is conducted each
year to keep close tab on the forest
insect situation," said State Fores-
ter C. H. Coulter.
According to the 1966 Annual
Survey of Forest Insect Activity in
Florida, mortality rate amounts
to one pine tree per 15 acres of
pine type land. This is a slight in-
crease in total losses over last
year. However, the tree deaths re-
present a very light, statewide, in-
festation meaning there is no area
which has an excessive amount of
insect destruction. The North Cen-
tral section of Florida registered
the highest percentage of pine tree
mortality per acre.
ber and following months. People
eligible for special benefits of $35
a month, for example, will ,get
checks for $32 beginning with the
payment they get in December.
Carey also had a special message
for those who may now be ap-
proaching age 72. If you reach 72
before the beginning of 1967 you
may collect these special payments
without any social security credit,
but you should come in and apply
either in the three months before
your birthday or the month of your
birthday. The special payments are
not retroactive and you will lose
benefits for some months if you
delay until after you become 72 to
apply, Carey pointed out.
Anyone having questions or
needing assistance on Social Secur-
'ity should contact the local Social
Security office. The office for this
area is located at 1135 Harrison
Avenue, Panama City, Florida
32401. The telephone number is
763-5331. The office is open Mon-
day through Thursday from 8:30

The investigation showed the Ips
Bark Beetle to be the leading tree
killer among the destructive for-
est insects. This small creature,
measuring all of one-eight of an
inch in length, bores its way
through the tree's bark and into
the growing section cutting off the
nutritional flow of the tree caus-
ing a slow death.'
The survey, made by systematic
aerial reconnaissance flights cov-
ering some 6,500 miles and taking
58 flying hours, is the tenth such
annual survey. It helps to keep
close tab on the degree of forest
insect infestation. Without the
survey an outbreak could get out
of hand unless steps were taken to
spray the insects or rapidly har-
vest the infested trees for pulp-
wood or sawlogs.
Ips beetle attacks are charact-
erized by the appearance of small
resin worts on the trunk of the tree

Landowners are asked to contact

can be taken.

Congressman Bob Sikes stated
this week from his home in Crest-

to some extent, uncertainty over

By Russell Kay
great industrial expansion has
created an unusual demand for
money and everyone is competing
for it, he added. "The old rule of
supply and demand has forced in-
terest rates to the highest level in
/ Teare asserted that the current
seven per cent interest rate is not
"shocking" when compared with
the average interest rate for the
past 54 years, which has been about
six per cent.
"The truoble is that in the last
three or four years we have had
interest rates as low as five and one
quarter per cent, which tends to
make the current rates seem much
higher," he said.
In predicting a stabilizing of in-
terest rates in the next year, Teare
warned commercial developers not
to expect them to dip to the levels
of the 1963-65. period.
Turning to the effect the tight
money situation is having on com-
mercial and industrial developers,
he admitted they have been virtual-
ly lost in the shuffle of FHA-VA
residential problems. But he hast-
ened to point out there is a bright
"One of the best effects is the
requirement of more equity fin-
ancing. A developer will have to
put hard cash in his own develop-
ment. He will take a long look to
determine if projects are economi-

Current high interest rates,
which have caused a slowdown of
'commercial construction and a-
bandonment of some plans, will
climb even higher in the next 120
days, a leading Florida financier
predicted last week.,
H. Malcolm Teare, of Palm
Beach and Miami, said the present
situation should not be considered'
"shocking" and he forecasts a sta-
bilizing trend after the turn of the
year. He termed the overall pic-
ture "not an altogether bad sign"
as far as commercial developments
Teare, board chairman of Florida
Mortgage Funding Corporation,
based his forecast on a compre-
hensive analysis of the current
money shortage and its effect on
the conventional and commercial
mortgage market. He also confer-
red with other top financiers in
Key cities in the East and West.
"With limited funds available,
you must understand. that insti-
tutional .lenders are looking for
quality loans and are going to be
more selective," said Teare, whose
own firm last month closed the
largest conventional loan in Flor-
ida history. A 15.5 million dollar
commitment for construction of the
Palm Beach Mall in West Palm
"This is due in part to the com-
petition for money from 'blue chip'
industries as well as federal, state
and municipal governments. The
latter two are offering extremely
high yields to attract investment
funds", Teare said. ,I
