It seems regrettable to us that this hassle over the
piling at the new Gulf County Courthouse should evolve
into a Grand Jury investigation of the matter being called
for by Judge Warren L. Fitzpatrick.
We believe that Gulf County has spent enough time
and money on this question. We cannot see the reasoning
for having to spend more to conduct the Grand Jury in-
vestigation-which will not be cheap.
We can understand why ,Judge Fitzpatrick. called for
the hearing.- Past sensational publicity on the matter,
which we believe to have been blown all out of proportion
will take an expensive Grand Jury investigation and their
personal inspection with hired, qualified engineers to
provide that neutral third party to say who is right in the,
matter and stop the bickering back and. forth. It is re-
grettable that this matter hasn't been. settled in a reason-

their claims that piling is sufficient under the Courthouse.
Neither has anything to gain by hiding improper piling
and both have everything to lose by the .results of impro-
per piling. We cannot believe they are anxious :to lose
their livelihood. A poor job here would bear this price
Gulf County's architects have the. best reputation
that can 'be had for competence in South Alabama and
North Florida. All, architects build a monument to their
abiiities every time they design a building. They use their
buildings for their advertising. '
We.cannot believe that our architects would let some-
thing slip by that would ultimately mar their record .
and put them out of business.
Agreed, architects are human and make mistakes.
But, this "mistake" has been publicized enough in the last
few months for the architect to know about it. All he
would have had to do was inspect the job;, and say, "you
are right, these are wrong, they should be so and so ."
and that would be the end of it. Since he didn'tdo so, we
believe them to be adequate.
In all fairness, I believe the questions concerning the
piling were made in good faith, believing something to
be wrong. T1is question has been answered sufficiently
in our mind.

Worn-Out Parking Meters
Port St. Joe will receive 100 new
two-hour parkingI meters and have
the parking meter program revit-

at Tuesday night's meeting of the
The Board voted, on a motion
by Commissioner I. C. Nedley to
accept a proposal by- the Rockwell
Meter Company of Pittsburg, Pa.,
to. provide and install 100 new au-
tomatic parking meters to the
City for $60.00 each. The company
offered a trade-in of all old hand
operated meters now owned by the
City for $5.00 each.
Nedley's motion. called for the
meters to paid off by giving the
company one half of the meter re-
ceipts until they are paid for.
OLD METERS "SHOT"
The new meter program came
about by the Port St. Joe Mer-
chants Divilsion asking the city to
repair or remove the old meters
since most of them didn't work
\and were merely a nuisance in the
business 'district of the City. It
was the opinion of the, merchants
that they had rather not have the
meters but felt that they were
necessary to regulate parking, es-
pecially on Reid Avenue.,
'After discussion over whether
or not to purchase the new meters
Tuesday night, Commissioner Tom
Coldewey asked the Clerk, Charles-
Brock and Chief H. W. Griffin if'
the City could maintain the bud-
get income item of $2,400.00 in the
City budget and pay for the new
meters. It was their opinion 'that
they could not but Brock pointed
out, "We aren't getting it any-
way because most of the old me-
ters won't work and consequently
aren't used", -
Commissioner Bob Fox pointed
out that a person would be needed
to police the new meters properly
and see that'they do-the job they
are designed to do. This would also
reduce net revenue.
The Board voted unanimously
to secure the new meters and take
steps to see that they are properly
policed and used.

High Court Does It Again!
Well, here we go again.
The Supreme Court has fouled up the works again
with a few well-chosen ambiguous words. They have said
that Florida's re-apportionment is not in keeping with the
guidelines, but fail to set out specific rules and regulations.
Oh, the Court did say that certain counties (Gulf in-
cluded) have more than their share of representation ac-
cording to population, but fail to say what conditions will
be allowed in deviating from the formula of one man---one
vote. They say that some percentage of over-balance or
under-balance is permissable, but that percentage isn't
So, once again, the State of Florida must grope in the
dark and try to come up with a formula without knowing
what size bulb to use.
We can only rest comfortable in the certainty that if
the new apportionment or the arguments defending the cur-
rent apportionment are not sufficient, then Florida will
be told again to "do it over" at a most inopportune time.
According to the Court's reasoning, Gulf and Bay
counties are 14.39 percent under the average of voters to
a Senator. This would mean that with a decision to re-
apportion' that Gulf and Bay would undoubtedly have an-
other county tacked to its Senatorial District, possibly
Calhoun. This could put an entirely different light on who
our Senator will be.
Nothing was said of imbalance in our Representative
district, so apparently that is allright.
But if this sort of thing keeps up, who will run for
public office? A candidate spends a lot of valuable time
and a considerable amount of money running for office--
only to have the Supreme Court say that he can't serve.
1968 or 1972? 1

"Personally," Ethel stated promptly, "I don't see how
he can wait until 1972."
"One vote for 1968. Now, what about you, Pat?"
"I vote," laughed Pat, "for both 1968 and 1972."
"Tally two votes for 1968," quoth Ted. "And what do
you think, Jacqueline?"
"As I understand it," murmured Jacqueline, "1968 is
the first possibility, and I certainly think Robert should pro-
ceed at the first opportunity."
"Unanimous, so far," observed Ted. "Three votes for

Joe nodded vigorously.
"You think 1968, rather than waiting until 1972, then?"
Again nodding, even more vigorous than before.
"Sargent can't be here," announced Ted. "He's off
buying tuxedos for the graduating class of his Head Start
boys. But he asked me to report his vote in favor of 1968,
and that Eunice feels the same way. So, that leaves only
Jean to be heard from. Jean?"
"Well," Jean reflected, "I certainly don't look at this
'from the top as most of you do, but I won't vote against
1968, since everybody else thinks that's the time."
"Very well," announced Ted. "It seems to be the con-
census that 1968 is the year. Robert, what do you say?'
Robert rose slowly.
"Ethel has been pressing me to go in 1968," said Rob-
ert. "I wanted the family to be unanimous. Go, I will.
I will get a haircut in 1968."

ficial of the changes proposed ap-
plies to the Congress. They provide
that terms of the members of the
HOuse be changed from two to four
year terms and the maximum per-
iod for a congressman to serve be
limited to three four-year terms.
Senators would still serve six year
terms but be limited to two terms. .
Thus in a practical application, the
maximum period of service of both
houses of Congress would be 12
If the members of the House
were elected every four years at
the same time as the President the
chances are good that the Chief
Executive would have a Congress
of his own party throughout his
four year term and make the ma-
chinery of government work more
It is doubtful that the, founders
of our country visualized life-time
careers of office-holding such as
we see today, but rather as an in-
terlude in a man's career, time he
took out from his business or pro-
fession to serve his country.
When a man makes a life-time
career of politics, too often he be-
comes more of a politician than a
statesman. His actions are geared,
to the next election rather than
the nation's welfare. Few persons
retain their full health and mental
vigor in their 70's and 80's. We
have cases in both the House and
Senate where heads of important
committees grew senile or became
too ill to carry on their duties yet
they continued to retain their po-
sitions of power.
The seniority rules of Congress
are such that members of long ten-
ure usually are men who head the
committees through which all leg-
islation must be funneled and
many become virtual czars to the
end that vital legislation that ,the
people want is long delayed or
even stopped cold because it clash-
es with the members' personal
views or wishes. It is argued, that
government these days is a highly
complex business and that men of
long experience are necessary to
guide its processes. Experience in
manipulating Congressional ma-
chinery is, however, no guarantee
of better legislation.
Eisenhower also feels that terms
of the Federal Judiciary should be
restricted including members of
the Supreme Court. Judges should
not be perfitted to serve more
than 20 years in the same court or
beyond the age of 72.
Such changes worthy as they are
can be counted upon to receive
bitter opposition for they would
upset the politicians playhouse but
they make a lot of sense.

Takes Bigger Bite
Social security taxes went up
again January 1, with both em-
ployers and employees feeling the
additional tax bite.
The increase was provided to
help meet the cost of increased
benefits voted by Congress in
1965 and establishment of the
Medicare pro, -am for the elderly.
Employees paying the maximum
social security taxes will pay
$290.40 per year,up $13.20 from
During 1963-65 each employer
and employee contributed three
and five-eighths percent each of
the employee's salary to the so-
cial security fund. In 1966 the rate
went up to 4.2 percent for each.
Beginning January 1, the new rate
is 4.4 percent.
Maximum salary on which so-
cial security taxes are paid is $6,-
600. This is an increase from 1965
when the base was $4,800.
The new increase amounts to
one per cent on each $5.00 of earn-
ings up to $6,600. For the self-
employed the rate has gone up to
6.4 percent from 6.15 percent.
The law provides that the por-
tion credited to the hospital in-
surance to finance Medicare in-
creases from .35 percent to one-
half percent. The portion which
finances the old-age and survivors'
and disability benefits through two
other trust funds rises to 3.9 per-
cent from 3.85 percent.
President Johnson has announ-
ced he favors provision of higher
cash benefits next year and the
Social Security administration has
estimated that about 75 percent
of the estimated cost of the pro-
gram as outlined could ,be finan-
ced without a tax increase.

Port St. Joe and Gulf County has been receiving the publicity
recently hasn't it? Some of it appears "manufactured" to me.
For instance, that tripe last week about the "news media" be-
ing kept out of a County Commissioner's meeting at the court-
house site. We consider ourselves news media, and we were not
barred from the meeting, and we arrived right on the dot, 3:00 p.m.,
when the meeting was supposed to start.
There might have been some private conversation going on that
was, not on the record that was better kept private, but as far as
action by the Board or the Architect or the Contractor was con-
cerned, it was all open to anyone who wished to attend.
If you wish to see some real shenanigans, try and get a few
inches of space for some happening we are proud of over here.
All these years our Gubernatorial candidates have been 'cam-
paigning on the promise that they will be a "Governor of action".
Nobody can deny that we now have a "Governor of action", but
nobody likes the action. Maybe four years from' now, a Governor
will be elected on the promise to be easy goeiig.
Looking at the special session from the Legislators point of
view, we would be opposed to it, also. It would take time for these
duties that hadn't been taken into account. Were we the Governor
we could see the sense of the special session, as the new draft of
the Constitution allows the Governor room to operate and we have
no doubt that Mr. Kirk covets this "room".
We picked up some printing to do for Glenn Boyles the other
day and we remarked, "You must be getting all this printing while
you have some Christmas money to pay for it with". Boyles said
"no such thing I expect to ride you until the April Spring bill-
ing date." Everybody rides everybody around here. I would hate
to be the man on the bottom carrying all of us "riders."
We were reading in Brother Will's Chattahoochee News
the other day where he reported that scientists are concocting up
the possibility of mixing up microbes with oil, shaking the whole
thing up on a milk shake shaker, pelletizing it, freezing it, giving
it a fancy name and selling it for food to alleviate the food
It's supposed to be perfectly palatable, nourishing and the
answer to the world's food shortage.
Whether the promise of this concoction will prove all that it
is claimed or not remains to be seen. But this one thing we cani
predict with certainty .-. now is the time to buy stock in catsup.
Its use will surely increase.

This year, "B" is for apples big, beautiful and bountiful. And
"C" for their quality, crisp and crunchy. The big ones are for
the fruit bowl, of course; the green ones for cooking and baking,
And here's a little apple arithmetic for supermarket days. Figure
3 medium, apples for a pound or. 3 cups, sliced. And remember
that 2 to 2% pounds equal the all-American apple pie. Then
think half an apple per person for salads or garnishes with
meat. And the day you want to rediscover old-fashioned Apple
Crisp, toss four more apples into the shopping cart. Here's a
quick and easy recipe for that lovely dessert.
4 cups sliced pared apples
2 tablespoons water
!4 to !/3 cup sugar
1V4 cups Bisquick
!/2 cup sugar
Y2 teaspoon cinnamon
4. cup shortening, melted
Heat oven to 400%. Grease. a
square pan, 8x8x2". Place apple
slices in pan; sprinkle with
water and /3 cup sugar. Mix
Bisquick, % cup sugar and
the cinnamon. Beat egg well;
pour slowly over Bisquick
hnixture, stirring constantly
with fork until crumbly.
Sprinkle mixture over fruit.
Pour shortening over all. Bake
about 25. minutes. Serve hot
or cold with milk, or cream.
6 to 8 servings.
Some interesting flavor mates
for side dish salad plates:
Sliced apple, avocado, oranges
and maraschino cherries. Or
chopped apple, shredded car-
rots and celery. Or chopped
apple, marshmallow bit s,
raisins, figs or dates. "Dress"
with zesty French.
Apple garnishes? Great for add.
ing ottrast in shape, color,
crispness' and flavor. For the
pork platter, try this,
Red Cinnamon Apple Rings:
Cut'cored, pared apples in %-
inch rings or slices. Cook un-
til tender in syrup of 2 cups
sugar, 1 cup water, % cup red
cinnamon candies .and a few
drops of red food coloring.
Very sophisticated but simple.
apples with Cheddar cheese
for dessert. Serve both sliced
on a platter or spear
whole apples with cheese
kabobs (chunks of Cheddar on

the tiny knives and dessert
plates. And what do you know,
you're going gourmet. With

So often we hear people say,
"What is wrong with the teenager
of today"? The answer is "nothing
'is wrong with them". The teenager
of today is no different than the
teenager of yesterday. We may
not have had as much to tempt us
as they do today, but we were, in
our youth, no different than they
What makes the difference in
teenagers? There are several con-
flicts which they face. Give them
the right answer to these conflicts
and you will have that which
makes the difference. The right
solution is what makes the differ-
ence yesterday, today and tomor-
Lord willing, we will deal with
these conflicts and God's answers
to them in the weeks ahead.
Conflict No. 1I-Whether the
teenagers realize it or not, the ma-
jor need in their lives is the as-
surance that their relationship
with the Saviour is right in the
'sight of God. God's answer is found
in I John 5:11-13 where we read:
"And this is the record, that God
hath given to us eternal life, and
this life is in His Son. He that hath
the Son hath life; and he that doth
not have the Son of God hath not
life. These things have I written
unto you that believe on the name
of the Son of God; that ye may
know that ye have eternal life, and
that ye may believe on the name
of the Son of God".
Notice in verse eleven that God
has given to us eternal (never end-
ing) life. Next we are told in this
verse that the one and only place
this life can be found is in God's
Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is
the only one who ever defeated
death. This He did when He rose
from the dead. Christ, then is the
only One who can give eternal
life to us.
Verse twelve states very plainly
that if we have the Son of God we
have life eternal, and if we do not
have the Son we do not have life
The question that now arises is,
"How is this brought about?" The
answer is given to us in verse thir-
teen. God says that if we believe
that Christ died for our sins we
have eternal life. The word "be-
lieve" has the thought that I be-
lieve He can save "me" and will
have "me" when I believe. The
apostle Paul said to the Philippian
jailor, "Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and thou shalt be saved".
So, young people, "Believe on
the Lord Jesus Christ," trust Him
to save you from eternal Hell and
torment and HE WILL! Trust Him
to give you life eternal and HE
Can I be sure? How can I know
I am saved? Teenager, if God
tells you that you can be sure you
are saved, will you take Him at
His word? Teenager, God is not
the author of a guess so, hope so,
maybe so salvation.. God has, in
His word, given you the assurance
Notice, very carefully, verse 13,
where God says: "Believe on the
name of the Son of God; that ye
may KNOW that ye have eternal
life". How wonderful our Lord is
to take away .all doubt and worry.
We can be sure of our salvation.
We can know we are saved. We
can know we have eternal life.
Why? Because the Word of God
says so! Look again at verse 13,
"believe", and you can "know"
that ye have eternal life.

If you did not get a gift of poin-
settias for Christmas, it is easy to
establish plantings of the holiday
ornamental by purchasing potted
stock from a local nurseryman.
However, some green thumb oper-
ators feel that they have better
luck if they sneak hardwood cut-
tings from a neighbor's yard fol-
lowing the flowering season.
You can root hardwood poinset-.
tia stalks by punching holes in the
desired location, inserting three
quarters of each of the wxoody cut-
tings into the soil and pressing the
soil firmly around the base. Be
sure to keep the soil moist. Mulch-
ing around the cuttings will help
you maintain moisture, soil tem-
perature and weed-free conditions
for rooting and growth.
If you prefer, to propagate by
softwood cuttings, put off the pro-
ject until around June, These ten-
der shoots root well under con-
stant mist or in any propagating
unit. Remember, it's important to
keep the humidity high around
the cuttings during the rooting pro-
There are a number of poinset-
tias that will grow well out of
doors. If you desire red-bracted
varieties, propagate such plants as
fireball, Indianapolis Red,j. Albert
Ecke, oak leaf or Mrs. Paul Ecke.
For color combination mingle the
red planting with Ecke white or
a pink variety.
Poinsettias will grow on a wide
range of soils, including sand,
muck, mary, rocky soil and clay. In
spite of the wide adaptability, the
plants will present you a better
show of color if you take proper
care of them.
Fertilizer application is import-
ant. Apply about 1% pounds of a
good garden fertilizer per 100
square feet of plant space in early
spring, again in June and perhaps
in mid-summer if there are heavy
Pruning is the secret of a canopy
of color next Christmas.
As each sprout reaches 12 inches
long, pinch it back to six inches.
Continue this cruel treatment to
all sprouts until the middle of
September. Then stop to give the
plant tips a chance to set their
bracts of color petals.
Poinsettias show their color ac-
cording to day length and temper-
ature. A plant near a lighted win-
dow or a street light often refuses
to color up like a neighboring
plant in a nearby darker corner.
The best flower development is
when the night temperatures range
from 60 to 62 degrees.

Drive This Month
"The March of Dimes is fight-
ing birth defects because each
year these tragic conditions rob
more than a quarter-million Ameri-
can children, of their birthright:

Frank Pate made this statement
this week as he accepted the chair-
manship of the January 1967 Gulf
County March of Dimes campaign.
"I think most of us would con-
oider it alarming if we heard
about an epidemic in which a new
case struck every other minute,
which was the second greatest de-
stroyer of life, and which caused
half of all cases of mental retarda-
tion," declared Mr. Pate.
"Yet," he pointed out, "'birth de-
fects are responsible for all this,
and for much more human dam-
age. -Many defects are not appar-
ent at birth. They appear later in
life, causing' physical or mental
"The March of Dimes is making
important progress in birth de-
fects, but we need increased pub-
lic support to continue and to
expand these programs."
Mr. Pate noted the growing
number of March of Dimes-sup-
ported centers where birth defect
children receive superior treat-
ment from teams of trained medi-
cal' professionals. There are now
77 of these centers in operation.
In research, scientists supported
by March of Dimes grants have de-
veloped ways of detecting several
defects of body chemistry that can
cause mental retardation, and are
studying the heredity and environ-
mental factors which affect a
baby's development before birth.
"In addition," said Mr. Pate,
"the March of Dimes is conducting
a national educational program to
inform every expectant mother of
the importance of prenatal care in
minimizing risks to the newborn
