U. S. Department of Education Calls County
Board of Public Instruction On The Carpet
For The, Lachk of
e The Gulf County Board of Pub-
e lic Instruction was notified by the
o U. S. Office of Education Tuesday
u that representatives of that office
will meet with the Gulf County
Board Friday of this week at 10:00
y It is surmised by the Board that
the meeting, requested by the U.
a S. Board, is to discuss the lack of
Negro teachers in formerly all-
e white schools in Gulf County.
Superintendent of Public Instruc-
s tion Marion Craig has said that
g Gulf County is the only county in
the state, formerly all-white, that
does not now have Negro instruc-
tors on the faculty. An attempt
was made to hire some Negro
teachers last year for Port St. Joe
High School, but with no success.
The Board was quized recently
by the U. S. Department as to their
.plans for future integration of fa-
culties .in County schools. The
Board, in effect, -replied that they
had anticipated no future change
in faculty procurement. The an-
swer pointed out attempts to hire
Negro teachers, without success, at
Port St. Joe High.
The Board presently has project-
ed three Negro teachers for Port
St. Joe High during the next
school year. These are in the areas
of Junior High math, Commercial
subjects and Fifth Grade elemen-
tary. A Negro instructor for Music
in Wewahitclika has been project-
ed by the Board.
ASK FOR PAY INCREASE
With other offices in the County
Government receiving raises at the
hands of the current session of the
Florida Legislature, Board mem-
ber Bill Rich asked that a resolu-
tion be approved granting a pay
scale for the Gulf County Board
members in keeping with other
counties the size of Gulf. This
move was seconded by Gene Raf-
field and met the approval of all
the Board members.
The move would raise the School
Board salaries to the neighborhood
of $2,400.00 per year. Chairman
Eldridge Money and Superinten-
dent Marion Craig are to prepare
and sign the resolution Tuesday.
Preliminary plans for the new
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
High Schools were presented to
the Board for study Tuesday by
architect Norman P. Gross.
Preliminary plans call for a new
building complex with 132,000
square feet of floor spaee at an es-
timated cost of $12.10 per square
foot for Port St. Joe. The build-
ing. would accommodate 1,200 stu-
dents., For Wewahitchka, a build-
ing of 52.000 square feet was pro-
posed at an estimated per square
foot cost of' $14.90. This building
would house 600 pupils.
Both buildings were round on
the preliminary drawings, rather
than the conventional rectangular.
Superintendent Marion Craig
reported to the Board that he had
deposited $1,077.995.94 in the Flor-
ida First National Bank at Port
St. Joe on Thursday of last weekI
in keeping with the orders of
Circuit Judge Bailey that the Board.
divide its bond money on deposit.
Craig said that in all deposited
funds of the Board, the Wewahitch-
ka State Bank now has $1,410,-
670.15 on deposit while the Flor-
ida First National Bank now has
$1,410,670.16 on deposit.

Two Local Bills
Representative Ben C. Williams
introduced two local bills in the
extended session of the Legisla-
ture Tuesday. The bills were among
55 local and general bills intro-
duced and required a two thirds
vote to approve such introduction.
One of the bills would authorize
the Gulf County Commission to
spend $15,000 each to expand and
equip the White City and Highland
View Fire Departments. The funds
may be obtained from the county
General Fund (taxes) or from the
race track funds.
The second local bill would re-
peal the law that prohibits the
county commissioners from pay,
ment of a retainer fee to a county
engineer. This bill would allow the
Board to pay such a retainer fee.
Both bills are in committee.

Just A LittleFire But A Lot of Expense
THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1967
Lack of Education Costs Many Dollars
More thani $100,000 difference.
That's what is costs a young man or woman during
their lifetime when they fail to continue their educational
careers after graduation from high school.
According to national studies on the subject, the aver-
age high school graduate of today,;is going 'to earn ap-
proximately $250,000 during his lifetime, while the average
college graduate is going to earn approximately $350,000.
It's all the more reason for Gul County youngsters to
continue their education if at all possible, and they have a
golden opportunity to do so with college credit courses now
being offered in Gulf County by Gulf Coast Junior College.
Gulf Coast is conducting an educational survey this
nionth to determine the type and number of courses to
offer in Port St. Joe and Wewhitchka High Schools for the
fall semester, which begins August 25 and ends December
Gulf County youngsters just finishing high school, as
well as other citizens, regardless of age, would do well to
participate in the Gulf Coast Junior College program.
Working' men who want to prepare for another career,
veterans who want to take advantage of the "GI Bill",
and a host of other citizens with a variety of goals can
be helped through the Gulf Coast program.
One striking advantage of the program is the fact
that it offers college credit courses from 6:30 to 9:15 p.m.
one night each week during the semester. : A youngster or
adult can continue to hold down his regular job if it is
necessary and still work toward a degree.
Those who wish to carry, a full course load, of course,,
may do so by ,taking' one course each evening, Monday
through Thursday, for a total of approximately 12 hours.
Five semesters, or less than two years, can earn an asso-
'iate degree at that rate.
Aside from material benefits, a college education car-
ries with it many intangible advantages. It! enables a per-
son to know and appreciate himself, his fellow man, and
Sthe world in which he lives. It adds depth and height
and breadth to what we call character.
The Gulf Coast Junior College program in Gulf
County, which was begun only last year, is still in the be-
ginning' stages. But if the response of Gulf County is
right, it could be 'the beginning to a full-fledged junior
college campus within our own borders someday.
We endorse the program completely,, and we urge
those of you who are interested to clip, complete, and re-
turn the educational questionnaire printed elsewhere in
this issue. !

In the United States we, more than most other peoples,
have been blessed with vastand fertile lands. They have
been bountiful in yielding food and fuels, clothing and shel-

But, many Americans have accepted the bounty and

shores and scenic monuments, wilderness areas and parks
are encroaching upon the nation's productive land at a fan-
This year, again, there are quarrels between the pro-
ductive users of our land, and those who prefer that more
land be, set aside for recreational, esthetic and cultural
purposes. No one questions the conviction and dedication
of those who wish to preserve wilderness areas, establish
parks and protect the scenic grandeur of our country. But
the stark reality is that the thousands of products which
our forests yield for our people are of tremendous national
significance, too. Growing trees and harvesting them in
an endless cycle is an absolute essential if our country is
to prosper and grow.
It is elemental that trees require land. It is equally
obvious that this is one national resource which can be re-
plenished, by forest regeneration. This is not true of pe-
troleum or minerals, for example. When these resources
are depleted they are gone forever. The replenishment
cycle for our'forests can be accomplished only if sufficient
land is provided for the regrowth process.
,Yet, if the Congress were to pass, in their present
forms, just those bills which the Secretary of Interior has
put forward this year to establish new Federal parks and
trails, the impact upon our timberlands would be catas-
trophic, so seriously would they reduce the nation's oppor-
tunity ,to grow trees, harvest them, and replant.
It is the land itself which is the priceless natural re-
source of our nation. It can never be enlarged.' Given
access to the land we can grow trees forever. Denied the
land, we cannot.
It has been said that "a tree is a miracle of God". But
even a miracle requires growing space.
WHO'S THE WA ICHDOG?
Legislation now before Congress would provide for
the use of as much as $60 million of federal tax revenues
to finance the next. presidential campaign. This scheme
seems destined for burial in this session, but similar pro-
posals will be presented again. If tens of millions of tax
dollars are to be turned over to political war chests, the
question arises as to what agency or group might effec-
tively keep an eye on the fair allocation and spending of
such' huge sums of money.
'After witnessing the shenanigans of' some of their
high officials during the past year, many taxpayers won-
der what would happen to 60 million of their tlax dollars
in the hands of office seekers. At this point, it appears
that it would take a mighty sharp, nonpolitical group to
keep the burglars' hands out of the cookie jar.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Americans work 2 hours and 25 minutes each day just
to meet their federal, state and local taxes. This is tan in-
crease of six minutes in the past year, according to the
Tax Foundation. In contrast to the tax bite, John Q. Pub-
lic, works ,only 1 hour and 26 minutes to provide for his
housing, 1 hour and 14 minutes for food and tobacco, 40
minutes for transportation, 30 minutes for clothing, 19
minutes for recreation, and 21 minutes for medical 'ex-
penses. All 'other expenses take up only 1 hour and six
minutes of his day.
He envisions high speed trains,
similar to those being tested in
the east today, operating between
Homestead, and Jacksonville over
Florida East Coast tracks, that
could move a large number of
commuters rapidly and at the same
time remove thousands of cars
from our over-crowded highways.
Other types of transportation in-
clude high speed hydroplanes op-
erating between communities on
both the East and West Coast, a
monorail train operation along ex-
pressways using the median strips,
capable of moving thousands of
people, faster and safer than is
now being accomplished by ground
motor car transportation.
While these ideas may seem far
out and more or less "Buck Rog-
ers" it nevertheless provides the
only answer to our serious traffic
and transportation problem.
with safety and dispatch.
Spearheading the movement to

House Speaker Ralph Turlington
and headedi by Rep. Vernon C.
Holloway of Miami, whose efforts
have earned him a variety of ti-
tles by his colleagues from "Mr.
Transportation" to "Buck Rogers".
Mass transportation of some kind,
is imperative for such areas as the
lower East Coast, the Tampa Bay
area, Jacksonville and a number
of others. Only mass transportation
can prevent highway clogs and
enable travelers and commuters
to drive from their homes to con-

Well, one of the teachers organizations the Florida Educa-
tion Association has imposed sanctions on the State of Florida.
We do not like it. We do not think it becomes the teaching
profession. But, lest our thinking be misinterpreted, neither do we
believe in the Legislature "playing politics" with the appropriation
for teacher salary increases and other necessary budgetary items,
Just as we believe teachers should be a notch above stooping
to impose sanctions on an entire state .. by the same token we
believe that Legislators should be men enough and interested enough
in the state they were elected to serve to represent the people on
an impartial basis.
Too often in this session of the 'Legislature in the Con-
gress or in other sessions of both bodies, Legislators look at an,
idea in the light of what party it originates from, with little or no
thoughts of the merit of the thing.
Now., you who hit me over th head with this thought while we,
supporting Governor Kirk can go ahead and laugh. I would sup-
port Kirk again in like circumstances.
We can understand the teacher's animosity toward the Legisla-
ture, but their actions, in my'opinion, don't quite meet up to the
criteria of behaviour of professional people. And neither does the
various activities of the Legislators.
But what's done is done, and the thing now is to :arrive at an
honorable and workable conclusion. And, we, like the teachers,
can see no honorable conclusion as long as priority in the budget of
the State of Florida is not given to items that deserve priority
with lesser items going to the end of the line.
In other words we understand why they did it, but we'
don't like having them, do it.
The new Scout Executive for the LakeSands District, Dunn
Miller, of Pensacola, was in Port St. Joe a couple of weeks ago,
spending a few days getting acquainted.
Miller had some very nice things to say about Port St. Joe.
He offered the opinion that.'. and we quote "This is a most
friendly and cooperative town. I have yet to see a community
project but what was accomplished by cooperation from the en-
tire community industry, business and individuals alike, work-
ing together. I like that!"
That was a kind thing to say. But, without boasting we might
add, this community deserves these words, because they are true.
Probably one of the main topics of conversation for the past
few years has been the lack of a sign on The Star office.
Well, today, you can come by and look at the brand new sign
on the front window nothing fancy, just serviceable.
Three of 'our bitterest critics for not having a sign has been
Bob Sidwell, M. F. Kershner and our supposed friend, Bob Ellzey.
What happens when the sign is completed? "Hey, said Kersh-
ner, "it isn't centered on the window". Sidwell had some snide re-
mark to make about "It's about time", or something like that. Ell-
zey asked us why it wasn't larger and in gold leaf, yet!
There's just no pleasing some people.
* Well, the Jews and the Arabs are having at one another.
If I were an Arab, I would read history and see what Joshua

of thousands David slew .. then I would pack up and go back
home to think it over some more.

Plan Ahead and Bring
Your Family Back Alive
TALLAHASSEE-"Plan Ahead" was the watchword issued this
week by the Florida Highway Patrol to all vacation bound motorists
emphasizing that a little planning gives a head start to a safe and
Colonel H. N. Kirkman, Director of the Department of Public
Safety, appealed to motorists, "Before. you go, have your car safety
checked, also carefully list items that you should take along and
be sure to plan your route well. Most important, plan to bring your
family back alive."
Kirkman points out that successful safaries prepare ahead for
possible road emergencies. He urged motorists to make a check
list of needed items such as: first aid kit, maps, extra set of keys,
fire extinguisher, wheel /lack, lug wrench and a good flashlight.
"Also make sure your insurance and driver license haven't
expired and carry them and your vehicle registration with you
at all itmes," said Kirkman. "And watch out for fatigue! Don't
plan to cover too many miles in too short a time. About 400 miles
a day on good highways is reasonable."
A final note from the Patrol reminds motorists not to over-
load your car. Try, to avoid loading cargo inside the passenger
compartment, but if you must, don't block the rear-view mirror or
rear corner vision. Remember, a heavily loaded car is hard to
control and needs more stopping and swerving space.

On Saturday, May 14, Company
"A" departed by motor convoy for
Camp Blanding to conduct annual
active duty training. This "spirit-
ed" group of soldiers departed
with one major objective in mind,

ture that the Battalion has the lea-
dership, talent and ability to be
the best. The next job is to do it.
Sunday afternoon, May 14 the
group arrived at their bivouac area
near Camp Blanding and set up
for this phase of their training.

The second week's training in-
cluded: demolitions, float bridges,
field fortifications, engineer recon-
naissance and assault over crossing.
Friday afternoon, May 26 fin-
ally came. The men had been so
absorbed in their training they
could -hardly believe it. This af-
ternoon the same group of "spir-
ited" soldiers marched with their
heads held, high onto the parade
field to participate in the 260 En-
gineer Group assembly and awards
Upon the presentation of awards
