Increase In Sales
CLEVELAND,' OHIO-Sales of
the Glidden Company for the three
months ended November 30, first
.quarter of the company's 1967 fis-
cal year, rose to $87,192,693, com-
pared with a ,total of $78,694,630
in the same period of fiscal 1966,
Dwight P. Joyce, Board Chairman,
reported this week.
Net income for the 1967 quar-
ter; however, was lower than the
total for the first quarter of the
1966 fiscal year, amounting to
$2,629,382. or 37 cents per com-
smoh share. Income for the same
quarter last year was $2,660,216,
or 41 cents per common share.
Mr. Joyce said that the decline
in profits was due chiefly to low
profit margins in domestic vege-
table oils and copper products. He
also noted that the company had
higher-than-expected start-up costs
in some new facilities. Despite re-
duced profits of the first quarter,
the company anticipates another
record sales year-in 1967 with con-
tinued profit improvement, he said.

Fire Damages Automobile
Last Wednesday Night
Fire damaged an automobile
owned by Mrs. Sybil Scheffer late.
Wednesday night, according to
Fire Chief R. H. Ellzey.
The auto was being driven by
Mrs. Scheffer's grandson, Richard
Scheffer, when a wheel bearing
apparently overheated, catching
the car -afire.
The fire occurred between the
overpass and the Highland View
Port St. Joe's Volunteer Fire
Department put the blaze out, but
the auto was extensively damaged.
Eldridge Money of Port St. Joe
was named by the Gulf County
Board of Public Instruction to
serve as chairman of the Board
during the 1967 year. Money was
named at the organizational meet-
ing of the Board Tuesday.
W. F. (Bill) Roemer, Sr., of Hon-
"eyville was named by the Board to
serve as vice-chairman.
In other organizational business,
the board seated Gene Raffield as
a member. Raffield defeated Joe
Ferrell, also of Port St. Joe, in the
Spring primaries. Raffield is be-
ginning a four year term.
Kenneth Whitfield of Wewa-
hitchka was also seated by the
Board Monday. Whitfield won re-
election during the Spring primar-
ies and is beginning his third term
as a member of the Board.
Health Doctor Problem
The question of whether to re-
tain Dr. Terry Byrd of Marianna as
the permanent health officer for
Gulf County apparently is not de-
cided as yet. In the last meeting
of the County Board, the Board
voted, over the objections of Com-
missioner T. D. Whitfield, to hire
Byrd and join in a tri-county health
department group with Calhoun
and Ja'ckson counties.
o The thinking now is that a three
county area would not allow Gulf
County enough service. .
The Board has instructed Clerk
George Y. Core to cofitact-the State
Health Department to see if ar-
rangements can be made to put
Gulf County in a. two-county area
with an acceptable doctor.
Chamber Directors to Meet
The Port St. Joe-Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce Board of
Directors, both out-going and in-
coming will meet Monday after-
noon at 5:00 p.m. in the Council
Chambers of the City Hall for the
purpose of electing new officers
for the new year.
The Directors will also set the
date in February for the annual
meeting of the Chamber.
Only two slight automobile acci-
dents marred the holidays here in
the Port St. Joe' area, according
to Highway Patrolman Ken Mur-

FOLLIES OF '66
We've all been reading round-ups of the most import-
ant news stories of 1966 acCounts of the major events
that seemed to make the globe spin a little faster during
the past twelve months.
We thought, it might beo worth while to record what we
-consider the most insignificant news events of 1966. These,
in our opinion, did not make the terrestrial sphere move
any faster; they just made a lot of spectators dizzy with
the amount of good, clean newsprint wasted on them:
1.' The present status of Goi and religion as pro-
pounded by a member of that learned body The
Beatles, whose name escapes us.
2. Various ultimatums presented the people of these
United States by one Stokley Carmichael.
3. The. earth-shaking controversy over that royally
commissioned book by a chap named Manchester.
(The Kennedy's didn't have the money to pay for;
their book publicity?)
4. His Lordship Bertie Russell's attempts to haul
President Johnson-before Russell's Court of Glo-
bal Justice, for sentencing as a war criminal.
5. Senator Bobby's humanitarianism toward the Viet
,Cong, which he thought worthy of his blood.
6. The Columbia Broadcasting System's venture into
baseball with what used to be the world champion
7. Senator Javits' pitch to become Vice President (of
the- United States!)
8.' Assorted public statements by the Rev. Dr. Mar-
/ESLEY R. RAMSEY '
A sampling of Port St. Joe merchants this week re-
vealed the fact that Port St. Joe had its best Christmas
business ever., Whether This was a result of more people
shopping at home, or just more money'to spend, we do
'not know. But the fact that business in Port St: Joe is
improving is heartening.
We believe this will be a good year for businessmen
and private citizens alike in Port St. Joe.
Now that the new year is here, we must break our-
selves of the habit of writing "1966" oni everything, that
needs dating. ?This isn't easy.
Learning to write a new date is almost as hard as
getting back into the "routine" again after having so many
days off during the past two weeks.' Not that we're not
in favor of the days off, but somehow ithe income stops
along with the production, and, with us, the income is
Did the bowl games suit you? If the outcome didn't,
the volume certainly must have. We watched until the
middle of the third quarter Monday night ard then went

we did get to watch Ted Cannon pay off a slight wager on
the Orange Bowl game to. Gannon Buzzett in pen-

I guess we can safely predict that Claude Kirk will
.have a good four years as governor of Florida.
Any man that can overcome the obstacles he 'has,
ought to be able to be a creditable governor.
His chances of getting elected were, to put it mildly,
-not very good. As late as the night before election, we
"would have guessed ,that he would lose, even though col-
umnists and political analysts over the state were picking
him by a slim majority.

According to a news story in The New York Times,
civil rights, religious and labor leaders have joined forces
to .propose a $185 billion "freedom budget for all Ameri-
cans". The budget will be requested from the federal gov-
ernment. Its purpose is to provide a guaranteed annual
income, increased welfare and social security payments,
full employment, a rise in farm income and health, housing
* and educational opportunities for all persons. The spon-
sors of the "freedom budget"'explained that this astronom-
ical sum can be raised without higher taxes. They believe
it can come from the still uncommitted taxes the federal
government will collect, known as federal surplus income
and will wipe out poverty in the next ten years.
There is little doubt that anyone who dares to ques-
tion the merits of tlbe "freedom budget" will be branded
as a reactionary and defeatest. Be that as it may, the
dissenters' still have the right and the obligation to
continue to point to the fallacies of an all-out welfare state.
Some years ago, a book entitled "Atlas Shrugged"
described in a dramatic manner the disintegration of a
society that sought to obtain the,ultimate in security' by
seizing the accumulated resources and talents of the na-
tion's most productive people in order -that each might
'share. according to his needs. In the ensuing debacle, it
was found that men of ability, the creators, the workers,
,,the producers gradually disappeared from the scene. So-
ciety simply became an ignoble, starving mass. Admittedly
this sounds like' a farfetched analysis.
Great Britain has not yet had a "freedom budget",
but it has gone much farther along the road to a welfare
state than the United States, and in Great Britain the right
to strike has been outlawed, wages and prices have been
frozen and unemployment is rising. It is logical to suspect
that there, is some connection between Britain's welfare
state and the 'spreading impoverishment of her people.
Right here at home, a better example would be the
pulp wood industry. Paper mills, using the wood are find-
ing it necessary to install expensive saw mills to allow
their producers ',o bring in pulp wood in log form. The rea-
son? Introduction of the "poverty program" has caused
some pulp wood workers to go on the "program" rather
than work for their daily bread. Thus a shortage of labor
is created by a system that was ultimately designed to take
care of those who had no work to do.
"Thus Saith The Lord"
By REV. BILL GRAHAM
A 'new year, a new beginning,
what does it hold?. How shall we
live the year ahead? We should
concentrate on the part of this
year in which we find ourselves.
Thinking about next summer or
fall is rather useless.
Let us look at today and care-
fully look at the beginning so that
we.get off to the right start.
Turn in your Bibles to Deute-
ronomy 11:16-20, where we read:
"Take heed to yourselves, that
your heart be not deceived, and
ye turn aside, and serve other,
gods,' and worship them; And then
the Lord's wrath be kindled against
you, 'and he shut up the heaven,
that there be no rain, and that the
land yield not her fruit; and lest
ye perish quickly from' off the good
land which the Lord giveth you.
Therefore shall ye lay, up these
my words in your heart and in
your soul, and bind them for a
sign upon your hand, that they may
be as frontlets between your eyes.
And ye shall teach them your
children, 'speaking of them when
thou sittest in thine house, and
when thou walkest by the way,
when thou liest down, and when
thou risest up. And thou shalt
write them upon the door posts
of thine house, and upon thy
This is a rather extensive pas-
sage of scripture but what a won-
derful lesson for us to learn and
live in this year of 1967! Notice
we are to "take heed" to ourselves
and let not our hearts be "deceiv-
ed". We should not let anything
take such a place of importance in
our life that we place God second.
When things, events, or people,
come before our Lord they become
false gods and our exhalting them
in our lives is to worship them.
The result of such a condition is
to kindle God's wrath and to de-
prive ourselves and our families
of the riches of God's blessings
either materially, financially or
spiritually, or all three.
How do we avoid God's wrath
and displeasure? The answer is
given in the above scripture. Dad
and mom, it is up to you!
1. We are told that we must lay
up in' our hearts the Word of God.
We must know the Lord Jesus
Christ as our Saviour. We must be
saved then go on to know the
teachings of the Bible. 2. We are
to make known to our children
God's Word. It should be found a
part of our daily lives and lang-
uage. The best and only way to
teach our children Bible truths is
by 'an open Bible in the home be-
ing used daily, and being made a
part of our everyday living. 3. And
thou shalt write them upon the
door posts of thine house and upon
thy gates. The fact that this home
is a Christian home should be a
truth easily seen by. your neigh-
bors and friends. This requires
that those things 'that are taught
within must be lived without.
This is the way to start the new
year right. 1) Knowing the Lord
and His word for yourself. 2)
Teaching them to your children.
3) Living and speaking of them
daily. 4) Living a good testimony
before them that are without.
This "without" covers two things.
a. Those who live outside of your
home and, b. those who live outside
Then in verses 26-28 of this same
chapter the Lord gives you a choice
of obeying or disobeying His Word
and a reward for each: '"Behold, I
set before you this day a blessing
and a curse; A blessing if ye obey
the commandments of the Lord
your God, which I command you
this day: And a curse, if ye will
not obey the commandments of the
Lord your i God The choice is
yours; the reward is known; the
year lies ahead and you stand at
the beginning. HOW WILL YOU
START THE NEW YEAR?

Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson, Jr.
Comptroller of Florid&
TALLAHASSEE Florida, now
completing a record-breaking year
of economic growth, is headed for
a new calendar year which is cer-
tain to be a financial milestone for
the Sunshine State.
It is no gross exaggeration tQ
say that 1967 will be a year of
fiscal revolution for Florida. The
following are some of the major
reasons for this prediction:
1. With our total banking re-
sources at the $8 billion mark, we
can expect Florida to continue to
improve its ranking as one of the
top 10 fiscal states in the nation.
2. With court-ordered 100 per
cent property tax assessment ac-
complished in all 67 counties for
the first time, Florida's ad valor-
em tax base will be on an equit-
able'basis between counties.
3. Because of the significant gen-
eral increases in property assess-
ments, arid because taxpayers
MUST have relief from an ad va-
lorem taxation system w h i c h
threatens to become confiscatory,,
this office will join legislative com-
mittees in recommending tax re-
lief measures to the 1967 Legisla-
4. A new State Constitution 'will
be acted on by the Legislature, and
this document can be expected to
strengthen Florida's financial sta-
tus with sections which will shore-
up tax articles and add clarity and
stature to the position of Comp-
troller of Florida as the chief fis-
cal officer of the state.
From these and other fiscal mat-
ters on the horizon, it is certain
that taxation is the most difficult
challenge the Cabinet, the Gover-
nor and the Legislature face today.
The most serious solution which
we in official government positions
face during 19q7 is that of tailor.

the anticipated expenditures for
the coming year, and the coming
This task will be made all the
more difficult in view of the many
millions of dollars which must be
provided to educate our children
and to secure those services which
Florida citizens need, deserve and
No one, today has all the an-
swers to these problems of growth.
We will, \however, be closer to
them aS the Comptrollet's Office
completes its projections of anti-
cipated revenue figures prior to
the meeting of the Legislature.
We do know that tax-relief must
be attained. A new and more pene-
trating look must be taken of land
valuations. We cannot put down-
t o w n valuation on frog-filled
swampland, just as we cannot al-

as a farm simply because a sprig

Fairness 'and equity for all must
be achieved, and the uniform ap-

anteeing this relief.

facility must be for further treat-

he was hospitalized."
The Social Security Administra-

Resolve To Use
Time and Energy

you are buying with your time?
Resolve to manage your time and
energy more profitably in 1967,
suggests Miss Vervil L. Mitchell,
home management and family eco-
-nomics specialist, Florida Agri-
cultural Extension Service.
Time and energy are two of your
most valuable, resources. You can-
not use one without the other. It
is possible to have plenty of time
but no energy because of fatigue.
The way you use time and
energy depends on what is most
important to you, Miss Mitchell
says. You have to choose the task
which is more important to you
and your family,
.Finding time to do all the things
you need and want to do takes
some planning. Time management
involves the same basic principles
used in managing money or a
business. "We all need a plan to
help us reach our. goals. A time
