PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1967
Congressman Bob Sikes is coming to our town next
week to do a little talking to the civic clubs of Port St. Joe
in a combined meeting.
And, though the "He-Coon" will probably do most of
the talking, if we could do some talking to him, we would
like to ponder for a bit, along with Congressman Sikes,
about the condition and future of our deep water port here
in Port St. Joe.4 Especially would we like to belabor the
point of its present condition.
The condition of our harbor is of especial import due
to the fact that we read almost every month where more
and more work is being authorized or extensive mainten-
ance is being carried out on the Three Rivers project .
the navigation channel up the Apalachicola, Flint and
Chattahoochee Rivers. Millions of dollars have been spent
on this system in the past to make inland cities in Geor-
gia and Alabama accessible to water transport in the Gulf
of Mexico and through the Intra-Coastal Canal. And, from
the looks of things, millions more will be spent on this wa-
Now you ask "what does the Three'Rivers Project have
to do with our port?" Everything.
Several years ago, the directors of the Three Rivers
System designated Port St. Joe as the outlet port for the
system. This puts Port St. Joe in the enviable position
of being the destination port of all foreign bound cargo
that comes down the Apalachicola River. Potentially, this
is a lot of business. It would all have to be handled in. the
Port St. Joe-port, re-loaded from river barges to ocean-go-
ing steamers or barges. This means labor. Labor means
money being spent here. Money spent means a boost to
_, :But, let's look at our readiness 'for this business.
Port St. Joe's port has a project depth of 35 feet. This
means that the National Rivers and Harbors Association
-has- agreed that the local port should be maintained at a
depth of 35 feet. But! It has been nearly eight years since
any dredging work has been done in the local port. People
who work with the port every day say that it has shoaled
up in spots to where it is only 27 feet deep ... a deficit of
eight feet, which means- a lot to a steamship.-
And the worst part of it is, there is no "talking" going
,on to secure dredging repair to the port.
If we had the Congressman's ear, we would ask him
if it isn't just a little bit foolish to keep pouring money into
the Three Rivers project arid leave the door for this out-
let, closed? We believe at least as much attention should
be paid to our outlet port as to the recurring sandbars in
the rivers. Each is equally important if the full channel
and port facility is to be effective. Otherwise, we should
forget it all.
America Still "The Best"
The National Observer pointed out in a recent article
that we should quit apologizing for America being Amer-
ica, "So it is affluent, so not everyone participates equally
(why should they, man being what he is?), so the 'quality' s
of American life does not please those who would like to
dictate 'quality'. But what other nation's system would c
you substitute for it?" o
The United States in the past 20 years has written
the most remarkable record of any great power in the t
history of the world, and it continues to write it today in r
Vietnam. Repeatedly, we have used our' overwhelming 1
military force to defend the territory, the rights, the lives
and the human dignity of people living in other nations
who were not in a position to defend themselves against the I
brutality and oppression of expansionist communism. We d
have-poured American blood and treasure into Europe and s
into Asia to rebuild the nations we defeated in World War t
II and to hold the lines of freedom and national self-deter- h
mination against aggression. American forces continue to i
fight for principle-the U. S. has no interest in gaining 3

the balance sheet of the history books is finally drawn,
U. S. citizens of the future will have reason to be proud of
their nation's record. This should be remembered amidst
the raucous ratings of America's detractors.
We thought it well to be reminded of these facts on
"Pearl Harbor Day". Surely this day in our history will
always serve as a reminder to our friends and enemies
alike that we are forever determined to avoid conflict at
the greatest lengths and stand ever ready to pursue con-
flict in the name of what is right, to the utmost of our
This determination, to defend the liberties of the citi-
zens within our borders, and to defend the sovereignty of
nations threatened from without has made our nation great
in the eyes of the world and a nation for which we can
proudly hold our heads high, thrust out our chest and say,
"I am a part of that nation!"
loafing Won't Get It
Charles Dickins was expressing a sincere conviction
born of experience when he said: 'My imagination would
never have served me as it has but for the habit of com-
monplace, .humble, patient, daily, toiling, drudging atten-
tion.' And Sir Isaac Newton had in mind his own life of
strict discipline when he said: 'Genius is patience.'
We will never be able to reconstruct the world in such
a way that we will be relieved of the necessity for indus-
try, frugality, prudence and temperance, and yet that is
exactly what most of the dreamers have in mind when they
talk of Utopia, the Banquet of Life, and Universal Democ-
They think that some way, somehow, somewhere, a
scheme will be devised by which all will be able to sleep
until 10 o'clock in the morning and work about three days
in the week. The idea is that during the remainder of the
week we will sit under shade trees, on a fishing hole bank
or in front of the log fires and loaf.

Midget Investments That Yield
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Well, Charles the Great has finally managed to finish off the
English Pound and now he's hard at work on the American Dol-
lar. What's he going to use for money when he finishes the two?
For years, now, France has depended on the upholding financial
arms of Britian and the U. S. to glue together his 'house of cards'.
If it weren't for these two markets, his industry would grind to a
halt. What will he do then?
Charles has begun his assault on the dollar by way of buying
up gold on certificates we have given his country as aid
and for goods purchased to help that nation's economy become a
steady force. In other words, he's buying our gold with our money.
It would seem a prudent thing for the U. S. to hand Charlie a paid
up note which this country holds against his for his demand for
gold exchange for dollars. Or, the U. S. could counter his move by
requesting payment of his nation's overdue debts to this nation .
in gold. But, good old Uncle Sam will continue to turn the other
Senator George Smathers offered the statement the other day
saying he could not see how France could attempt such a move
against the United States, since we have saved that nation from
destruction and rebuilt it twice during the past 50 years.
All Senator Smathers has to do is to look at what Charles has
* done to Britain and he will see "how he can do it to us". Britain
has bankrupted itself helping Charles' nation to regain its feet
twice, and received the full brunt of both those feet right in the
And all of this just because the Allies wouldn't let Charles the
Great lead the conquering armies into Paris during World War II.
We get several small pamphlets in the mail every month put
out by machinery and supply houses. We always like to read the
"fillers" in these magazines for their words of wisdom, their
quips and choice bits of information. Some of them rival the
Reader's Digest for readability. One we read the other day said
"Don't expose your weaknesses".
Now, one can really get his teeth into that little sentence.
In the first place, we all know that we do not have to expose our
weaknesses. There is always someone standing around ready to
do that job for us. And, if nobody else gets around to it, we can
do a pretty fair job of exposing them ourselves.
Do you have your Christmas tree up yet? It's only two and a
half more weeks to Christmas. The kids get out of school for the
holidays next Friday and the Christmas spirit is beginning to in-
vade the stores. And we thought some people were rushing the
season! We're just behind.

Plymouth, England in 1836 to Bos-

arriving there in 1837. The grist
mill was first operated by Colonel

warm and extremely dry weather
in Florida make proper handling
of pine seedlings after delivery
doubly important, according to R.
A. Jordan, Florida Forest Service
Jordan says advance orders for
new crop slash pine-seedlings are
still being received though com-
paratively few of the 65,000,000
tiny trees remain uncommitted at
three state nurseries.
Pine seedlings are packed in
moist cotton batting for shipment.
Good survival of the pine seedlings
can be virtually assured if on arri-
val at farm or, planting site the
bales are stored under total shade
in a well ventilated place. -Don't
stack the bales one on top of an-
other. Store in single layers, only.
Water the unbroken bales once
every three or four days.
When cold weather does arrive,
do not let the bales freeze since
irreparable damage is done the
seedlings' sensitive root system.
Finally, advises Jordan, do not
pick up more seedlings than can
be properly transplanted within
one week's time. Correct handling
of the trees means higher survival
rates and-increased cash return in
later years for the tree farmer.
'Farmers Urged to
File S. S. Reports
Thousands of self-employed far-
mers and their dependents have
retired with Social Security bene-
fits since 1954 wheni Congress ex-
tended coverage to this group. To-
day another 4% million people
whose living depends upon farming
are building Social Security pro-
tection against the loss of income
resulting from retirement, disabili-
ty, or death.
Urging farmers in this area to
file prompt and accurate income
and earnings reports for 1967,
John V. Carey, Panama City Social
Security District Manager, pointed
out that failure to do so may re-
sult in reduced Social Security be-
nefits or the loss of benefits.
"Now is a good time," Carey said,
"for farmers to examine their re-
cords -to see what they must'report
on their Federal income returns
for the past year."
Also, he said, low-income farmers
can build Social Security protec-
tion. Carey cited a special optional
provision in the law which enables
farmers whose net earnings are
less than $400 to acquire Social Se-
curity credits. It works like this:

invested last year more than 130 million dollars went for
quality controlresearch. Improved precision meastcrin.g
and compounding instruments were developed to make
even more certain you receive exactly what your doctor

improved methods of production. As the methods of manu-

Slightly In Wreck
Two young men received cuts
and bruises Monday night at 11-30
p.m. when the car in which they
were riding overturned on High-
way 71 just North of the Port St.
Joe city limits.
According to City Police, a 1960,
sedan driven by Larry Steve Wood
was traveling toward Port St. Joe
at "a high rate of speed" when
Wood lost control of the car after
completing the curve just North of
the Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road tracks. The car left the road,
knocked down a Railroad crossing
sign, grazed a utility pole and ov-
erturned in the ditch just before
reaching the tracks. James Keel
was a passenger in the car. Both
driver and passenger are" residents
of Highland View.
The accident was investigated
by City Patrolmen M. A. Kelly,
Howard Rogers and James McGee.

end have contacted the County
Commission of Gulf County,

WHEREAS, this Commission is
further advised that the City
Commission of the City of We-
wahitchka, Florida have agreed
to donate and contribute certain
adjacent surplus property to the
Veterans Administration for the
purposes above stated, and
WHEREAS, location of such a
facility in Gulf County, Florida
would be of great advantage and
convenience to the citizens of the
City of Port St. Joe who are vet-
erans of the Armed Forces, as
well as veterans in adjoining
areas, the closest such facilities
now being located at Lake City
and Gainesville, Florida, and Mo-

WHEREAS, there is much ac-

Gulf Coast College Singers Presenting
'Free Christmas Concert Friday Night
Gulf Coast Junior College's famed "Christmas Con-
cert", featuring the College Singers and the Concert Band,
will be presented at 7:30 p.m., on Friday, December 8,
in the Fine Arts Building, interested persons are remind-
The annual "Christmas Concert", which through the
years has established a reputation as one of the finest
cultural programs presented annually in Bay County, will
climax a busy fall season for the new Fine Arts Auditor-
The auditorium, which seats more than 600 and which
was completed just this fall, already has hosted a folk-
singing trio sponsored by the Student Government Ly-
ceum Commission, a "College Follies" sponsored by the
GCJC Inter-Club Council, and a concert by the Rutherford
High School Chorus.
Among the music to be presented by the "College
Singers", directed by Norman J. Hair, and the "Concert
Band", directed by Prentiss Melder, are such numbers as
"0 Bambino", "Mary, Mother, Sweet and Mild", and
Faure's "Cantinque .De Jean Recine".
All interested persons are invited to attend the con-
cert, which is open to the public free of charge.
Household Memory File
If a book were written on the well-organized housewife
chances are it would point out she writes books-note-
books and notebooks full of facts and useful information
that she calls her memory file.
One of her special notebooks might be titled "Enter-
taining." This would document her parties-menus that'
proved successful and bear repeating; business and so-j
cial acquaintances noted for future invitations. Even a
few notations on friends' interests can prove so helpful
in planning intimate dinner parties.
Another important notebook ini the memory file would be
titled "Gifts." Here would be kept lists of all gifts sent
and the occasion involved, at last ending the problem of
duplication. Aunt Mary won't receive a birthday wallet
two years in a row. And friends' children won't remind you
that you had given them the same gift last year after they
open their Christmas packages.
The one notebook in the memory file that should be a
must in every household is the "Family Health Record."'
An up-to-date record of recommended diets, prescriptions i
filled, diseases and illnesses, vaccinations and shots.
prove invaluable time after time especially when filling
out school and camp health forms. The mother with these'
records on hand never has to guess when her children last
had their tetanus boosters or if they had the childhood'
diseases to which they had been exposed in class.
Other memory aids that would prove helpful to the well;
organized homemaker include Household Cleaning Hints
given by friends, Christmas Cards Sent and Received,
Household Services and Repairs along with notes as to.
the various firms' competence and reliability. A record of
items that are tax deductible will keep hubby happy, and
for the newly married a notebook of all money spent for.
a year is a great help for future budget planning.
