Florida Bank Asks
For' School Deposits
Walter-C. Dodson, president of
the Florida First National Bank in
Port St. Joe appeared before the
Gulf County Board of Public In-
struction Tuesday and asked that
his bank be named depository for
half of the School Board funds.
Dodson said that the law re-
quires equal division of public
funds among qualified banks in a
county and Dodson asked for a
pro-rata share of the $2.5 million
bond money now on deposit. The
Port St. Joe bank does not have
any of the money.
The School Board instructed
their attorney, Cecil G. Costin, Jr.,
to give them a written opinion on
Dodson's statements before mak-
ing any decision about transferr-
ing part of the money to Port St.

Bargaining Is Still In Progress for
New PSJ High School Site Property
The Gulf County Board of Public
Instruction made a double-barrel
offer to the St. Joseph Land and
Development Company yesterday
for a 35 acre plot of land on which
to build a new Port St. Joe High
The offer, made yesterday by
Superintendent of Public Instruc-
tion Marion Craig, was authorized
Tuesday in the regular meeting of
the Board in Wewahitchka.
The Board proposed to pay the
Land Company $35,000.00 cash
for the property in question, or
they made a second offer-to
trade the Land Company the pro-
perty now occupied by the Port
St. Joe Elementary School and
the Washington Elementary
and $5,000.00 cash for the desir-
The land in question lies South
of Niles Road and to the East of
Long Avenue. According to the
School Board, about 30 acres of
the land is high, dry usable land
with the remaining five acres ly-
ing low next to a small stream.
Previously the School Board had
offered $30,000.00 cash for the pro-
perty with no trade in and the of-
fer was turned down. The $30,-
000.00 offer came after the Board
had first offered $35,000.00 for the
land and the Land Company had
asked for a trade and cash offer.
Immediately after the first of-
fer it was thought that the law
would prohibit the School Board
from disposing of the present
school property in any manner, ex-
cept open bids. Apparently this.
was found not to be so since the
Board is now offering a swap, plus
cash deal in addition to a cash pur-
The Land Cpomppny has not as
yet placed a value on the'land, but
has asked the School Board to
make an offer.
An acceptance or rejection of
either of yesterday's offers has not
been made by the Land Company
STAR Will Print Letters
To Santa December 22
It has been the custom of The
Star in years past, to print let-
ters to Santa Claus in our last
issue just prior to Christmas.
We will do it again this year
on Thursday, December 22.
Encourage your children to
write their letter to Santa Claus
now and we will set it up in type
and store it until the December
22 issue. Do it early, as it will
relieve us considerably, not to
have to set up all the letters at
the last minute.
All letters received by Friday,
December 17 will be printed.
Urge your children to sign their
full name to their letters.4

Port St. Joe's parking meters
came up as the topic of discussion
by the City Commission Tuesday
Mayor Frank Pate said that he
had talked to the Port St. Joe
merchants about the question in a
recent meeting of the Retail Mer-
chants. Pate reported that the mer-
chants were in favor of removing
the meters but felt that they were
a necessary evil to control parking
on Reid Avenue. The merchants
were of the opinion that present
meters should be placed in oper-
able condition and the meters on
Reid Avenue should be changed to
two hour meters.
In discussion on the matter,
Commissioner I. C. Nedley stated
that the meters are not now work-
ed as diligently as when they were
first placed in service.
Commissioner Bob Holland asked
how much the meters take in and
liams, Quincy; John Richard Davis, Chipley;
Blair Morgan, Quincy; Ken Deason, Quincy and
Edward Prescott, Chipley.
Making up the defensive team were: Jerry
Nichols, Port St. Joe; Winston Chester, Quin-
cy; Buddy Bell, Chipley; Kenny Yon, Blounts-
town; Jim Cox, Port St. Joe; Tracey Clemans,
Blountstown; Tom Culpepper, Chipley; Kenny
Hansen, Chipley; Don Harrell, Chipley; Larry
Eldridge, Blountstown and Marlin Seay, QQuin-
cy. -Star photo
Parking Meters Discussed
asked if the take was enough to
pay a man to work them full time.
Clerk Brock reported that the me-
ters took in from $75.00 to $85.00
per week when first installed and
that the income was now only
$35.00 to $45.00 per week. He also
noted that at the beginning, the
post office was on Reid Avenue
and this increased the revenue
Commissioner Bob Fox said that
the merchants had asked for two
hour meters to allow more time
at a stop for customers to get their
shopping done, which is hard to
do on a one hour meter without
continually checking the meter.
After a good deal of discussion,
the Board instructed the Clerk to
write the meter company and get
information on trade-ins for rebuilt
meters and if the present one hour
meters could be traded for two

Four Sharks Win All-Conference Honors
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1966
PAG i "WO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
Reviewing the election returns we are pleased to note
that some of our most promising politicians took a shellack-
ing. We mean-those generous fellows who promised to do
more for us, get more for us, and otherwise pay us hand-
somely-with our tax money-if only we'd vote for them.
Since November 8th, political pundits have been pon-
dering this matter, some of them with obvious chagrin, and
proposing various reasons for it. They've talked about
"discontent over the war in Vietnam," the "backlash", and
"the concern of the housewife over food prices."
All these things entered into the thinking of the voters,
no doubt. But we submit that the majority voted as it did
for another and much more simple reason. They simply had
had enough: enough of the political con-man's pitch that
by voting for certain candidates everybody would be assured
of the good life, from cradle to grave; enough of the fiction
that votes concentrated in certain quarters would cause the
tenements to come tumbling down and sparkling new cities
to arise, filled with joyous and law-abiding people; enough
of the glib double talk that if we'd just be patient and for-
bearing and generous with.loans and gifts we'd have the
Coiimmunist enemies earnestly and sincerely negotiating for
peace in Vietnam.
Some enthusiastic pundits have heralded events on No-
vember 8 as a great victory for a resurgent Republican
party. It was, it seems to us, no such thing. It was purely
and simply a heartening exercise in turning the rascals out.
We've seen no case where we're convinced that any specific
candidate was voted into office. In every case we know
about, it was a case of an ambitious incumbent being voted
out of office. II
Whether they use public opinion polls, computers, or
flip a coin to make decisions, we hope that enough politicians
will decide that what happened on November 8 was a re-
flection that the public wants statesmen and not medicine
men selling expensive nostrums in Washington.
If that happens, the election will come to be hailed as
a bi-partisan victory and a wonderfully good thing for all
The last Congress was most commonly called "The
- Christmas Tree Congress," and the "Rubber-Stamp Con-
gress". We think the new Congress will probably rate a
better image, and a better name.
IT WAS A FINE PARADE
Didn't you think it was a fine parade Saturday?
We think the Jaycees deserve a vote of thanks. for
putting together the interesting parade they presented
Saturday morning. It was one of the largest parades in
the past several years, and the floats showed a great deal
of work, thought and effort in their planning and building.
Things were a bit ragged at first, when one of the
parade vehicles couldn't be started, and a break in the
stream of floats resulted: but the parade masters re-routed
the finished portion of the parade and put the entire show
down Reid Avenue in a splash of Christmas color and
expression of the Christmas theme.
We particularly liked the abandonment of throwing
candy from the Santa Claus float. Children dashing into
the street in the wake of this float in the years past, fight-
ing for candy and fruit, has caused a danger to the chil-
dred. The Jaycees recognized this and corrected the sit-
uation by having Santa park near the City Hall and pass
out his goodies and talk to the kids.
We think it worked real well.
We really appreciate the Jaycees producing this par-
ade every year. We think we should all give our expressions
of gratitude to the Jaycees by giving them, all of the old
repairable toys that are just lying about the-house, so that
they may be repaired and presented to sonie less fortunate
children at Christmas time. Show your appreciation for
what the Jaycees do with the Christmas parade and all
through the year by donating today to their "Toys for

President Johnson has been reported hot-rodding again on
the back roads of Texas. It seems to me that someone smart
enough to work his way into the White House would be smart enough
to know that he should be setting an example for American youth.
Surely, he must know. that he, is setting an example, whether he
intends to or not. The image that is cast on the American scene
every time Johnson scratches his head when it itches, should
make him mindful of the fact that every youth in the nation is look-
ing at him and saying, "President Johnson drives 80 miles an hour
and over ... why do you fuss at me when I do?"
There must be something wrong with the Florida Constitu-
tion Revision Committee.
Last week, we offered an opinion that a Governor serving
a second term in Florida (if he can get elected) would be a good
thing a utilization of training that the taxpayers paid for dur-
ing the Governor's first year or two in office.
We don't usually pick winners, but lo, and behold, in Friday's
paper, it was reported that the Committee thought our thought
was a good thought too. But it wasn't because we thought it that
they thought it.
The U. S. Supreme Court has ruled that the Georgia Legisla-
ture cannot deny Julian Bond a seat on the Georgia Legislature be-
cause of his utterings as to his fealty to the United States. The
Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, ruled that Bond's number
one freedom under the Bill of Rights-the right of expression-has
been rudely violated by said Georgia Legislature.
Maybe so But we contend that if decisions of the Supreme
Court during the past 10 years hadn't offered such succor and aid
to Leftists and others who are intent upon upsetting the American
way of life then Bond would not have stood a" prayer of a chance
to get elected.
We do not believe that Mr. Bond has been denied his seat be-
cause he is a Negro. There are Negroes in the Georgia Legislature.
We believe his seating refusal came about due to his espousing the
beatnik philosophy-whether they be white or black-that the
world owes them a living and success. It's just coming to the point
where the do-nothings are multiplying like flies and they elected
Bond. When Uncle Sam has placed the "nothing owed" price tag
on the good American life, you can bet there will be any number
of lazy takers.

the dog to do that!

Scientific developments in all
fields are advancing so rapidly that
the average layman finds it dif-
ficult to adjust his mental process
to keep pace.
In a recent column I told you-
about a new radio pill, a transis-
torized radio transmitter about the
size of a small button, that when
swallowed by a patient sends back
an amazing amount ,of informa-
tion as to your physical condition
enabling your doctor to diagnose
the situation quickly and accurate-
Now comes a group of Philco
scientists with what they call an
Automatic Medical Monitor in the
form of a chair. All the patient
has to do is sit in it while an op-
erator checks physical impulses.
With arms resting on specially
designed conductive arm rests the
patient is completely relaxed. The
comfortable upholstery of the
chair has built-in sensors or electri-
cal pick up which sdnd the minute
impulses produced by the body
functions through a wire attach-:
ed to a data processing machine.
The Automatic Medical Monitor
will accurately report your pulse
rate, respiration and heart sounds
and virtually eliminate the stetho-
s c o p e, electrocardiograph a n d
other clinical apparatus.
We can thank our space pro-
gram for this advance in medical
science for its development came
about as a result of Philco's re-
search to find a remote control
monitoring technique to gauge
physical responses of astronauts.
With the advent of medicare
and increased demand for physical
check ups, the medical monitor
will save hours of waiting for pa-
tients and valuable time for the
doctor. Instead of simply sitting
and waiting to see the doctor, they
are in a monitor chair and are e-
xamined while they wait. A nurse
or attendant simply gathers the in-
formation from the processing ma-
chine which will tell the doctor
just about everything he wants
to know without the time con-
suming old type of- examination

Medical science is moving so
fast that today's human being is
apparently well on the way to be-
coming a mechanical man. When
eyes give out he can apply to the
eye bank for a new pair. When
he loses blood he goes to the
blood bank. His hospital is equip-
ped with an artificial kidney, me-
chanical lung and other devices
for repairing and maintaining life.
A recent issue of Newsweek
points out that the effort to build
the first artificial heart has become

"Thus Saith The Lord"
By REV. BILL GRAHAM
The third subject we will deal sonal Saviour is NOT a Christian.
with in our consideration of prac-
tical Christian living will be. the
teaching of "separation" as set
forth in the Bible. The subject will
cover our questions on business
partners, lodges, clubs, and mar-
The Christian is reminded that
we are looking into the teachings
of the Bible. If the problem is one
of yours, examine the Word of
God. Obey the Lord that He may,
give you His best. If your parti-
cular problem is beyond what we
share to-gether in this article go
to your pastor for added informa-
tion, or write "Thus Saith the Lord,
in care of The Star.
Turn in your Bibles to H Corin-
thians 6:14-18: "Be ye not unequal-
ly yoked together with unbelievers:
for what fellowship hath righteous-
ness with unrighteousness? and
what communion hath light with
darkness? And what concord hath
Christ, with Belial? or what hath
he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the tem-
ple of God with idols? for ye are
the temple of the living God; as
God hath said, I will dwell in them,
and walk in them; and I will be
their God,, and they shall be my
people. Wherefore come out from
among them, and be ye separate,
saith the Lord, and touch not the
unclean thing; and I will receive
you, And will be a Father unto you,
and ye shall be my sons and daugh-
ters, saith the Lord Almighty."
Let us consider, first of all, se-
paration in regards to people. We
will deal with clubs, business etc.
later. The Bible tells the Chris-
tion to separate themselves from
those who are not Christians. First
of all: Who is not a Christian?
Any person who is trusting in
water baptism, golden rule, 10 com-
mandments, or church membership
to help them go to heaven is NOT
a Christian. Any person who has
never trusted Christ as their per-
They are unbelievers. They are
unsaved and boud for eternal hell.
A Christian is one who believes
that Christ, the Son of God, died
on the cross for their sins, and
rose again from the dead. They
trust the truth that Christ's pay-
ment for their sins is all suffic-
ient to save them from Hell and
take them to Heaven. Now God
says in His Word, that the persons
who trust in Christ should separate
themselves from the ones who do
not trust in Christ.
What do we mean by separation?
Just this! The unbeliever may be
good, clean, moral, kind, etc, How-
ever the fact that there is no har-
mony in the things of Christ makes
that person wrong company for
the believer. Their likes, desires,
and destiny are entirely different.
The unbeliever will draw the be-
liever in the wrong direction. Be-
cause their is such a vast differ-
ence in the unbeliever and' be-
liever only unhappiness and dis-
content can come from this un-
equally yoked condition. The Be-
liever should be kind, friendly to-
ward the unbeliever, and ready to
help them in time of need. They
should always invite the unbe-
liever to the things of the Lord,
and try to make Christ known to
them by life and lip. But they
should never follow the unbeliever
in their way of life. Never choose
to go somewhere with the unbe-
liever in perference to the things
of the Lord. Never enter into close
fellowship with the unbeliever,
such as dating, marrying and join-
ing organizations with them. This
is God's command to the believer.
God is not trying to be cruel,
unreasonable or bossy. God, in in-
finite wisdom, knowing all things,
is instructing the believer for the
believer's own good. Everyone de-
