Cecil G. Costin, Sr., owner of the

$16.00 was missing from the cash
register, which is always left open
to prevent damage to the machine

According to daily newspapers
in the state, sources have said the
meeting was called to consider
invoking sanctions on the State of
Florida for failure to provide a
suitable pay scale increase.
The Marianna meeting which
local teachers attended was one

state of Florida. Newsmen were
barred from the meetings.

To most people a Chamber of Commerce is something
to use as a tool for attracting industry or business to a
given area. It is an organization for extolling the good
things about our community.
Since, during the past couple of years, or so, there
has been no new industry moving to Port St. Joe and only
one to Gulf County, the attitude has shown itself that the
Port St. Joe-Gulf County Chamber Commerce is not carry-
ing its load. "the organization has gone to sleep".
Such is not the case and a recent activity by the
Chamber has proven that they are a wide awake, function-
ing organization an organization that is ever alert to
the progress it can make for this area and Gulf County as
To some of us, it is evident that the Chamber is work-
ing every day to boost Gulf County. Maybe the glamor-
ous, high publicity actions have been sort of scarce recently,
but, nevertheless the "daily grind" routine of ordinary
work that accompanies any movement, goes on.
Just recently, the Chamber was instrumental in sav-
ing the people of Gulf County and Port St. Joe in particu-
lar, untold expense anguish hard feelings and
inconvenience. Most all of you are familiar with the dif-
ficulties experienced recently toward obtaining property for
the new Port St. Joe High School. You know that the
negotiations deteriorated to the point where the School
Board was planning to go to court. This would have, in all
probability, resulted in the School Board having to pay
much more than the original asking price for the property
involved, what with court costs, legal fees, attorney's fees,
and an unknown value to be set on the property by the
courts. This is to say nothing of the delays that would be
brought about by legal maneuverings. All of this could
not help but end in hard feelings that would be almost im-
possible to erase in the foreseeable future.
The Chamber of Commerce, recognizing the danger to
the harmony of our area, by letting this situation continue
to deteriorate, stepped into the negotiations and served as
mediator between the Board of Public Instruction and the
land owners.- We think their efforts netted a bonus for
Gulf County. We believe their efforts will mean more to
Port St. Joe and Gulf County than the citizens will ever
We commend the Chamber for their efforts in this area
and for their alertness to the avenues of service in which
they can be effective.
These are the little jobs that need doing, but nobody
but an effective Chamber of Commerce can tackle such a
project with no malice suspected from either side.
As the result of effective negotiations, both sides pro-
Too Late To Classify
My hero, when I was a young-
ster, never rode a horse, fired a
six shooter, flew through the air
like a bird or got lost in space.
All he did was his job and he
died tragically in the line of duty
to become a national hero and a
legend. His name was Casey Jones
and he was an engineer employed
by, the Illinois Central.
I recall how I learned the lyrics
of the popular song, "Casey Jones"
as did most youngsters of my age.
We whistled, sang and yelled the
,ballad of "Casey Jones" until we
*drove our elders wild. Our ambi-
tion was to become a railroad en-
gineer and pilot a six-eight wheeler

I am indebted to my good friend
Tom Mahoney for his article in the
current issue of the Reader's Di-
gest entitled, "The Life and
Death of Casey Jones" for it
brought back memories long for-
gotten but still cherished.
Carl Sandburg called "Casey
Jones" the greatest ballad ever
written on the North American
Continent and I am inclined to
agree with him.
Casey was real, not a character
of fiction. He was born Johnathon
Luther Jones in Southern Missouri
in 1863. When he was a boy his
school teacher father moved the
family to the village of Cayce, Ky.
Johnathon and his three brothers
all grew up to become locomotive
engineers but none attained the
fame of Casey.
Casey prided himself on his en-
viable reputation as an engineer
whose train always ran "on time".
He drove Engine No. 382 and car-
ried the famed Cannonball Ex-
press between Memphis, Tenn.,
and Canton, Miss., a distance of
188 miles on a 50 mile an hour
schedule including stops.
On April 29, 1900 Casey brought
his Cannonball north into Memphis
exactly on time at 9 p.m. He was
scheduled to rest there and take

A NEW JAMESTOWN COLONY
There must be millions of Americans who never ex-
pected to live long enough to see a Presidential Commission
seriously recommend that each individual be guaranteed an
annual income "whether he works or not' But they did.
Moreover, since government has decided to define and meas-
ure poverty, no one would be poor under the guaranteed
We don't remember who first advanced this incredible
proposal. Our first recollection of it dates to 1963 when a
UN economist, Robert Theobald, told a Chicago audience
that the Constitution should guarantee everyone a salary
"adequate to allow him to live with dignity" whether he
works or not.
Now, four years later a whole Commission is making
the recommendation. Wait another four years and the geo-
metric increase should have at least one-half the workers in
the country ready to quit work and take the guaranteed in-
come. Production will be reduced by one-half. And there
will be only one-half as much to divide. By the end of the
second year, doubtless all workers will want to get on the
"gravy train." Then there will be nothing to divide-and
we can start all over.
Back in 1624, Captain John Smith wrote of the experi-
ences of the Jamestown Colony: "When our people were
fed out of the common store, and laboured jointly together,
glad was he (that) could slip from his labour, or slumber
over his tasks he cared not how-nay, the most honest
among them would hardly take so muci true paines in a
week, as now for themselves they will doe in a day; neither
cared they for the increase, presuming that howsoever the
harvest prospered, the general store must maintain them,
so that we reaped not so much Corne from the labours of
thirtie, as now three or four do provide for themselves."
Couldn't we just establish another Jamestown Colony
somewhere and let that Commission test the theory for a
few years? We doubt that any members would survive two
hard winters under that guaranteed annual income policy.
If some did, we could transfer the emaciated wretches to
a Government Hospital and nurse them back to good health
slowly. And it would be a lot cheaper than trying the ex-
periment on the whole population.,
The Government is the largest land-owner in the
country. Set the Commission up in business, Mr. President,
and let them demonstrate their theory.
the South bound Cannonball south Ky. His engine No. 382 was given
the next day. At the roundhouse
he learned that his friend Sam
Tate was ill and unable to take
No. 1 south that same evening.
Casey volunteered to take the
turn. The southbound Cannonball
arrived 95 minutes late. That was
a lot of time to make up but Casey
was determined to protect his "on
time" record. Reaching speeds of
over 100 miles an hour, he' made
up 60 minutes before he reached
Granada, Miss. If he could main-
tain speed Casey was sure he
could pull in to Canton "on time"
a remarkable feat considering he
started 95 minutes late.
Approaching Vaughn, Miss. two
minutes behind schedule he ex-
pected to pass two freight trains
on a siding. Unfortunately one of
the freights had failed to clear the
main track and three cars and
the caboose were blocking his path.
He rounded a curve at close to
75 miles an hour to see the red
warning lights ahead in the fog.
Pis fireman Sim T. Webb, who
worshiped Casey, yelled we are go-
ing to bump. "Jump", Casey re-
plied, but stuck to his post break-
ing his train from 75 to 35 miles

Cancer Death Rate
181.4 per 100,000
In State of Florida
rent cancer death rate of 181.4 per
100,000 population is almost four
times the 1920 rate which was 50.1.
As a human killer, cancer has ri-
sen from eighth place second only
to heart disease, the State Board
of Health says.
From 1950 to 1966, Florida's
death rate for cancer of the lung
almost tripled-from 13 per 100,-
000 to 38-while cancers of the
breast and intestine showed only
a moderate rise. Malignancies of
the prostrate, stomach and uterus
have remained either fairly stable
The gain in lung cancer has been
particularly sharp for males; the
board said, becoming the leading
site of cancer in this group. Their
mortality in 1966-was almost three
times as high as in 1950. The rate"
for females rose little more than
double. In 1950. this site was' char-
ged with 16 per cent of all male
cancer deaths but it had risen to
30 per cent in 1966 compared with
a rise of from 4 to 6 per cent
The general age pattern of lung
cancer deaths has remained much
the same since 1950. Deaths from
this cause are uncommon among
persons under 25 but the rate
thereafter increases rapidly with
age. In 1966, 54 per cent of lung
cancer deaths was at the age of
65 or older.
Improvement in diagnostic tech-
niques and increased interest may
account for part of the increase,
the board said, adding that the
Surgeon General's report stating
that cigarette smoking is related
to lung cancer outweighs all other
factors. The report showed that
lung cancer occurred 9 to 10 times
more frequently among the aver-
age male smoker than among non-
smokers and that the tendency in-
creased to at .least a 20-fold risk
for heavy smokers.

We found out, one thing after last week's paper came out .
there are a lot of people in Gulf County who are opposed to the
County furnishing $30,000 to "furnish and equip" fire stations at
Highland View and White City. We received about as many respon-
ses from this editorial as from any that has ever appeared in The
Star. And practically every one of them feeling as we do about
the matter. This is unusual usually the response voiced to us
measures quite a few among the number who are opposed to our
opinions or offerings.
We would like to offer our congratulations to Joe Parrott,
for his victory in the State Jaycee Presidential election. Joe
worked hard in the campaign for State President of the Jaycees
and he worked us hard providing his printed material at the last
,minute, but the victory was his.
We say the victory was his but we should have said "the
victory is'ours!" We feel that Parrott's one year term of office
as the head of the Florida Jaycees will mean far more to Port
St. Joe and Gulf County than it will to Joe. Gulf County and
Port St. Joe will get state and nation-wide exposure and publicity
that could not be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen.
While you are congratulating Joe, you should also thank him
for putting forth the effort needed to bring this honor to our
city and our county.
A slight sprinkling fell Tuesday night about 9:30 Very
slight. This was the first moisture to fall in 48 days.
While 48 days without rain doesn't mean much to some areas,
it is almost unheard of here. Wells, used for watering lawns, are
going dry places that have been wet for years are now dry as
a powder keg.
We washed our old station wagon for the first time this year
Sunday afternoon, in attempt to coax up a rain but to no avail.
All my "aces" have been used up you'll have to try yours now.
Even with the heavy drought that is punishing all of Florida,
one part of the state reported a ray of sunshine on their water sit-
uation in the papers this past week. /
Key West, long troubled by a vulnerable fresh water supply,
tapped a new source of drinking water this week for the first time.
Residents of the string of islands off the tip of Florida, took their
first sip of sea water. The largest desalinization plant in the world
is now supplying Key West and its Naval station with purified sea
water. The machine uses 13,000 gallons of fuel oil to provide
2.62 million gallons of fresh water, so this isn't the answer to the,
drought. At 16c per gallon of fuel oil, this is $2,080.00 a day to
treat the water for a cost of 79c a thousand gallons. Port St. Joe
buys water for. 12c per thousand gallons.

The Medicare program, plus
the continuing effectiveness of
private hospital insurance
plans, is taxing the capacity
and efficiency of the nation's
;hospitals, according to W. 0.
Lindholm, director of market-'
ing for the Kendall Company,
one. of the country's largest
manufacturers of hospital
"America's hospitals more
than 7,000 of them today
stand embattled as never be-
fore against 'such major ad,
versaries as rising labor costs,
personfiel shortages, and bed
scarcities in addition to old
'enemies such as disease and
hospital-related infection," said
"The only logical source of
help against each of these
enemies of the hospital and its
patients," Lindhblm continued,
"is the ingenuity and capability
of American technology, work-,,'
ing with hospital authorities.
And, the most promising of the
weapons science and the manu-
facturer have developed is the
"The answer," said Lind-
holm, "is disposable nearly
everything in everyday use in
the modern hospital. From nii-
forms to surgical instruments,
today's trend is to use them
once and then dispose of them
in the incinerator. With nearly
every week that passes, new
items are added to the list."
i Safety, savings, and efficiency
[ come in several ways. Follow-
!ing a year-long study on thla
,effect of disposables on hospl-
i tal-related infection, J. D. Alla ri
Gray, M.B., pathologist of

disposables have a beneficial
effect by raising hospital staff
"Beyond t h i s," Lindholm
said, "there is great efficiency
and time-saving when the doc-
tor or nurse has at his or
her fingertips a sterile tray,
complete with all needed sup-
plies and instruments, for any
of dozens of hospital treat-
"For example, the Curity
dressings-change tray, perfected
by our own scientists, contains
a face-mask, two sets of for.
ceps, fitted gloves, antiseptic,
various-sized sponges, pads, ad-
hesive, and a bag, for disposal.
Another Curity tray 'has a
patented catheter which Min-
flates automatically with great
"All of these disposables also
gave vital personnel time. And,
since 70% of the hospital's
costs are for labor, and since
trained personnel is niost dif-
ficult to find, industry's con-
tributions through disposables
are truly helping our hospitals

in Gulf and Franklin Counties near
Port St. Joe, was officially declar-
ed a "closed area- by emergency
order announced this week by Dr.
0. Earl Frye, director. The order
becomes effective May 12.
The Commission in creating
the area recently at its meeting in
Eustis authorized legal steps to es-
tablish and close the tract. These
legal steps will be completed May
19 when the Commission meets in
Dr. Frye said that closing the
area by emergency order ahead of
the DeFuniak Springs meeting
was made necessary by flagrant
trespassing objectionable to the
landowner, and by reports of game
The order gives full force and
effect of law, and prohibits guns
and dogs on any part of the area
during closed season, and continu-
ously until the tract is opened to
General boundaries of the tract
are: On the west side by St. Joe
Paper Company water canal; on
the north side by State Road 387
(Howard Creek Road); 'on the east
side by St. Joe Paper Company
line of ownership; and on the south
side by U. S. Highway 98.
Charles Turner, regional game
biologist, Panama City, said this
week that boundaries already are
legally posted, and that the entire
area will be posted conspicuously
as quickly as additional signs are
Dr. Frye called upon all sports-
men and citizens to cooperate in
respecting the rights and property
of the St. Joe Paper Company and
to participate in the spirit of the
public hunting program by observ-
ing the closing order fully.

Miss Camille Carter
Gets Music Scholarship
It was learned this week from
Raymond Manoni, dean of the Fine
Arts Department at the University
of Southern Mississippi, that the
school has awarded a full tuition
scholarship to summer music camp
to ,Miss Camille Carter, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Carter of St.
Joe Beach. The music camp session
will begin on June 19 and continue
through July 22.
Participating students will live
on campus and attend regular clas-
ses, play in bands or special group-
ings. All recreational facilities will
be available to the students while
camp is in session.
Camille is a tenth grade student
at Port St. Joe St. Joe High School

Also, mulching allows you to add
value, to your garden rather than
to the heap for the trash truck.
It is time to root azalea and hi-
biscus cuttings. Tip cuttings--
about three or four inches long-
of half-ripened wood give best re-
sults. The standard method of pro-
pagation is to place cuttings with
four or five leaves on them in
sand at an angle so leaves are in
contact with the sand surface.
Keep the sand moist and covered
with cheesecloth to keep the air
around the leaves moist.
To save the chore of daily tend-

Florida, this week announced the
distribution this month of $2,345,-
000 in state racing tax receipts to
counties throughout the state.
By present constitutional provi-

equally among Florida's 67 coun-

an amount of $35,000 in racing
revenue for May.
"Total disbursements to date this
year show an overall increase of
$201,000 more than total disburse-

amount to $1,000 less than the sum
each county received in May 1966,"
