City's Holidays Marred By
Fire; Man Burns To Death
Willie Thompson age 42 was
burned to death early 'Saturday
morning when his home was de-
stroyed by fire. The fire report -was
called in by an unknown person at
12:59 A. M. the residence, located
at 341 avenue C, was completely
engulfed in fire when the fire de-
partment arrived. It was necessary
to use two pumpers to provett 'the
entire area from catching 'with
winds blowing 25-35 miles an hour.
A house next to Thompsonrs had
fire damage as a result of radimat
heat. The bedding in the house,
Ipeated at 339 avenue C, caught
fire after a gas tank located at the
Thompson residence built up pres-
sure and blew the relief valve, in-
creasing the heat in the confined'
area. The bedding was quickly put
!out and removed. The window
facings and a garage located at 339
avenue C, were burned.
Across the street and three doors
down another house caught fire as
a result of sparks from Thomp-
son's house. This house caught fire
on the roof but was also quickly
put out. Sparks were falling all
the way back to avenue A, some
two blocks away.
Thompson's house, when cooled
down enough to search, was the

Chairman of the Florida Commit-

Dr. McGuire's letter -explains
more specifically, why accredita-
tion was removed from Port St.
Joe High School three weeks ago.
Dear Mr. Craig:
I am sorry thatithe Florida Com-
mittee saw fi't to recommend
fhat Port St. Joe IHigh School be
dropped from 'the accredited list.
'When a school is dropped there
'are usually 'several reasons. The
major reason, however, in regard
'to Port St. Joe was the non-de-
The Florida Committee has
adopted the policy that hiring a
-non-degree teacher (for other
than strictly vocational purposes)
would 'be dropped immediately.
This policy was followed in re-
gard to at least four -other
schools in Florida this year.
I reaTize there is a severe teach-
er shortage and that you and the
people in your countyy have been
working very hard to meet South-
ern Association Standards. I am
sure, however, that you and the
parents want college graduates,
at least, for teachers in the se-
condary schools. I hope that you
understand -ur viewpoint in this
matter, and I wish you much
luck in trying to secure qualified
,teachers for the next school year.

Postal Rates Will Increase January 7
Says P ostister Cihauncy L. Costin
Increased rates for all classes of
mail except parcel post and inter-
national mail will go into effect
January 7, Postmaster Chauncy
Costin reminded postal customers
"Even for the rates of six cents
for first-Class mail and 10 cents
for air mail, postal service is still
a real bargain," the postmaster de-
clared. "For six cents you can send
a letter to any of the 50 States, to
any United States territory or pos-
Session, to -Canada or Mexico, or
to an American Servicemanstation-
.ed anywhere in the world."
Postmaster Costin pointed out
that the new rate for post cards
will be five cents and for air mail
post cards eight cents.
He said the added cent in the
letter rate is a 20 per cent in-
crease compared to a 24 per cent
boost in the rates for mailing news-'
papers and magazines and a 34
per cent hike for advertising cir-
figures released by the U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
Ports and waterways showing in-
creases in 1966 are Carrabelle with
a total of 43,481 tons (7 percent);
Port St. Joe, 301,045 tons (18 per-
cent); Gulf County Canal, 236,080
tons (41 percent); Bayou La Grange
106,358 tons (9 percent); Blackwa-
ter River, 73,559 tons (22 percent);
Escambia and Conecuh Rivers,
676,407 tons 6 percent); Pensacola,
730,324 tnos (12 percent); and Ba-
you Chico, 100,863 tons 4 percent).
Tonnage moving, on Bayou Chico
is included in Pensacola Harbor.
Some West Florida ports and in-
land waterways showed small de-
creases in 1966 from 1965. St.
Marks River accounted for a total
of 620,737 tons (1 percent); Pana-
cea, 1,921 (3 percent); Apalachicola
Bay 23,895 tons (30 percent); Apa-
lachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint
Rivers, 387,340 tons (7 percent);
Panama City, 1,244,067 tons 14 per-
cent); and East Pass Channel, 393
tons (29 percent).
Tonnage moving over the busy
Gulf Intracoastal Waterway be-
tween Apalachee Bay and Panama

1966; between Panama City and

Don't Relax Yet!
Danger Still Real
TALLAHASSEE With all eyes on the clock and inter-
est in what the new year will bring, the Florida Highway
Patrol today reminded drivers that the most critical per-
iod of time to consider is not next year but instead the next
Colonel H. N. Kirkman, director of the Department of
Public Safety, said, "At the close of the year when we look
to the future we are inclined to view time as endless and
overlook the realities of the moment. The most important
time for any driver to consider is always the next minute."
Crowded highways are expected as usual over the New
Years weekend. Based on past records the Patrol expects
26 lives to be lost in crashes during the 78-hour period from
6:00 P.M. Friday, December 29 through midnight January
"Let's end the old year and start the new year right by
proving this prediction wrong," concluded Kirkman. We
can do it if every driver will devote all of his attention to
safe driving every minute."

A New Year's Message
At this time of the year it is customary to have a New
Year's editorial, and usually it deals with events of the year
past, prospects for the year ahead, or the perishability of
New Year's resolutions.
This year we found what we think is a more appropriate
subject in a terse comment made by a refugee from Cuba a
few days ago. This man, an ex-cab driver from New York,
went to live in Cuba before Castro took over. His comment,
upon setting foot on US soil:
"I wouldn't live in Castro's Cuba if they gave me a dollar
for every minute I spend there."
The refugee, Puerto Rican-born Amerigo Puig, then ex-
plained his distaste for the sanctuary we have given Com-
munism in the Caribbean. Castro's regime stripped him of
$25,000, his life savings, which he had saved while working
in New York. But that was only part of it. Food, which Cuba
once exported, is so scarce that people have to rely on the
black market where a chicken worth $2 costs $10, where rice
is officially listed at 19 cents a pound but costs $2.25 and
where meat is quoted at 35 cents a pound but costs $5.
You don't have to take Amerigo Puig's word for the fact
that Communist Cuba is a pretty miserable place. Seventy
others got out with him. They aren't talking, beyond saying
they're afraid to talk for fear of endangering relatives still
in Cuba. Which is pretty eloquent testimony of a silent na-
We bring these things up as a reminder that when com-
parisons are made, the United States is pretty wonderful.
And when comparisons aremade-with countries with a so-
cialistic form of government, whether it's the British type,
the Swedish-"middle way," or the brutal type found in the-
USSR, China or Cuba-the United States is a veritable para-
dise, for citizens of all creeds and colors.
The moral, in the form of a New Year's resolution for
1968: "Let's defend and strengthen the wonderful system
that has been given us, and cherish it, each and everyone."

If you should ever have to spend Christmas in the hospital, we
don't believe you could ever find a better place for the dubious exper-
ience than Port St. Joe's Municipal Hospital.
I know "Christmas in the hospital" doesn't sound very inviting,
but the people at Municipal see that your holiday and every
day is as pleasant as possible.
Even through your stay at Municipal will be pleasant, we feel
it our duty to warn you of things to look for.
First off, there's the administrator, Miss Minerva McLane .
she's sneaky! Oh, she's all right everywhere except in her operating
room where she also presides as anesthetist., Outside this operating
room she is just as nice as pie. Why, she even brought me the news-
paper every morning, when she was on duty. But she got me in that-d
operating room Thursday morning at 9:00 A. M. and we took off into
a lively conversation of current events. Miss Mac started giving me
glucose. "We give everybody glucose just before we operate," she
All of a sudden cute little Vivian Ray was bathing my face with
a wet cloth, asking if I was awake. I heard her, but for the life of
me, I couldn't move my mouth to answer. You see, Miss Mac had slip-
ped me the sleep juice while I wasn't looking.
Vivian and Glenda Burke are the "taxi drivers" between the
rooms and the operating room.. among many other things.
Then there's three other nurses you must watch out for: Mrs.
McClamma, Mrs. Boone and Mrs. Booth. All carry wicked needles.
Mrs. McClamma shoots from the hip; Mrs. Boone shoots for the hip
and Mrs. Booth isn't choosy where she shoots you.
All the rest, that we came into contact with, offer only good
things. People like Mrs. Hoover, always solicitious every day. no
needles or pills; both of the Mrs. Grace. who dispenses the same
brand of medicine as Mrs. Hoover. Chester Davis, Mrs. Knight,
Mrs. Marshall, Mrs. Byrd, Kathy Jamison, Suzanne Antley, and many
others... regular rays of sunshine.
One thing about Municipal. you'll stay comfortable and well
fed. You are well looked after. We never once had to call for any-
thing. Someone was in the room every 20 minutes checking our needs
Municipal is just another of many reasons why we are lucky
to live in Port St. Joe, where we have so many of the good things of
of life. but I'm afraid too few of us appreciate it.
Tom Adams is at it again. "Uncle Tom" now says the Commit-
tee on Quality Education didn't take enough time to properly study
school needs. But when Governor Kirk advocated a December 1968,
special session on schools, "Uncle Tom" said Kirk was dragging his
feet. Just what does "Uncle Tom" believe? other than the fact
he is convinced he should be King of Florida?
An optimistic friend says that the Administration must have
run out V'f things to tax if the only additional source of revenue it
can think of is a tax on taxes.

"What is cancer?
All of us are well aware that
cancer is a serious health prob-
lem, one of the major killers. But
.how many. of us really know what
A-pamphlet of the American
Medical Afsociation explains that
during the process of cell division
-the basis of normal body growth
and repair-cells become differ-
'entiatcd into, the specific kinds
needed for each- organ or body
Each kind of cell.divides nto
its own kind, equipped to do the
job it was designed to do. Under
certain conditions not yet -coin-
pletely understood, some cells do
not differentiate in this way. They
multiply in irregular and disor.
derly fashion and compete with
normal cells for nutrition asid
space. These cell masses are called
Tumors. that remain local-
ized are benign tumors and nay-
not be troublesome unless. they
mechanically interfere with some
body function. Tumors that grow
rapidly and destroy tissue' are
known as malignant tumors.
These are called cancers.
Cancers may affect any part
.of the human body. They also
attack aninials and even plants.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sheffield and
son Donnie spent Christmas in
Madison with their son and daugh-
ter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Jackie
Sheffield. They also visited with
Mr. Sheffield's Aunt, Mrs. R. E.
Daniels, in the Colquit Hospital,
In man (and most animals) the
unrestrained growth of cancer
cells will infiltrate vital organs
and destroy them if not checked.
Cancers spread by infiltrating ad-
jacent tissue, by traveling through
the circulatory system and lym-
phatic system, or by any combi-
nation of these.
The cause of cancer in man
is not known. If treated promptly
and properly, some cancers are
highly curable. One-third of all
cancers in the United States are
being cured today. Cancers are
most readily curable before they
have spread from their original
locations. To be cured, they must
Sbe found early.
More than 300,000 persons
will die of cancer in this country
this year. About one-third of these
might have been saved through
earlier detection and treatment.

Millions of pounds of chemicals
made from pine tree derivatives
are produced by the SCM Corpora-
tion's Glidden Durkee Organic
Chemicals Group in its two Flor-
ida plants-over 170 million in /
1967, to be exact-and a large per-
centage of this production is ex- _
ported to three main market areas
-Europe, South America and Asia.
Using primarily the ports of Ja-k-
sonville and Port St. Joe, the Or- _
ganic Chemicals Group moves over-
seas about one-fourth of its sales of
Florida pine chemicals.
Last year, well in excess of 10,-
000 tons of Tall Oil and Terpene
Chemicals moved from this
group's Florida chemicals plants
to overseas industrial customers.
Glidden-Durkee Organic Chemi-
cals total over fifty products from
two pine derivatives as raw mater-
ial; almost all of these chemical-,
products ii Florida have been ship-
ped to. foreign markets by the com-
pany. The larger-volume chemicals
are Pine Oils and Dipentene ( sol-
vent) from Jacksonville and Tall
Oil Rosin and Tall Oil Fatty Acid
from Port St. Joe. Also exported
are perfumery and intermediate
chemicals, plus essential oils. In
1967, these chemicals were shipped
to Australia, Argentina, Belgium,
Brazil, England, France, Formosa,
Germany, Holland, Honduras, Italy,
India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, New
Zealand, Spain, Scotland and the
Union of South Africa, to name a
few of the larger volumes out of
some 35 countries receiving Flor-
ida pine chemicals by Glidden-
Durkee last year. Predominant
shipment was by bulk tankers,
moving the chemicals to overseas
distributors. Other large shipments
included drummed chemicals, or
in deck tanks, or in Sea-Land con-
tainer tanks. Ultimate use of these
chemicals overseas varies widely,
but the primary applications are
solvents, paper sizing (water proof-
ing), cleaner-disinfectants, pharma-'
ceuticals, perfumes and flavors.

Sales Tax Intake
Increased in November
Florida's intake from the col-
lection of sales and use taxes reach-
ed $24,282,249 during November,
up 7.5 per cent above collections
for the same month in 1966. Comp-
troller Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson.
Jr. reported this week.
In addition, Dickinson reported
that revenue from the three per
cent tax has brought more than
$123 million to the state in the
first five months of the fiscal, and
8 per cent hike over revenue for
the same period last year.
Dickinson likewise indicated that
two related sources of revenue,
the 5 per cent wholesale sporting
goods tax and the gasoline tax "are
experiencing vigorous growth."
Profit shown by the sporting
goods tax has risen 28.3 per cent
in the first five months over col-
lections for a similar period one
year ago while gasoline tax pro-
fit has increased 5. 8 per cent sig-
nificantly bolstering the state bank
by Florida Power Corp.
Since there are many hunters in
this area, Ihave heard quite a few
women say that they preferred
roasted duck for the holidays, to
the traditional turkey. This has
prompted me to pass on a few tips
on preparing the duck.
Allow at least one pound per per-
son. Serve with orange glaze.
Roast with a stuffing or not, as
desired. Instead of stuffing, put in-
side 2 cored and quartered apples
or one cup of celery leaves. It is
not necessary to truss ducks as
they have short legs and wings.
Place on a rack in an open roast-
ing pan. Roast at 325 degrees F.
until tender (about 30 minutes per
pound). Do not baste, since ducks
are fat. Prick in several places so
that some of the fat will drain off.
Turn often to brown evenly. Pour
off the fat as it accumulates.
% cup orange juice
1 tablespoon orange rind
Y teaspoon cloves
1/3 cup brown sugar
% ciup light corn syrup
Combine all ingredients.

Each year the drug industryInvests millions of dollars in
research to support thd nearly 800 million prescriptions
filled yearly by pharmacists throughout the country. This
Investment results in new. 'wonder drugs" which let us
live our lives longer,, healthier.. Of the 275 million dollars
invested last year more than 130 million dollars went for
quality control research. Improved precision measuring
and compounding instruments were developed to make
even more certain you receive exactly what your doctor
prescribes. And the investment also went for developing
improved methods of production. As the methods of manu.
fracturing improve, the price of the. bulk drug decreases,
This-saving is passed onto you in lower prescription prices,
The "gold pill" of yesterday is purchased today for a nomi-
nal amount. Thus, a conscientious, developing industry
works to improve the service and quality of the pharmaceu.
ticals you receive today and tomorrow.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always depend upon; bring your prescriptions tc'

At the same time, however,
Dickinson noted a gain in county

Do-it-yourself ear piercing, a
practice that has recently become
fashionable again, is risky, says
Today's Health, the family maga-
zine of the American Medical
Piercing performed by an
unskilled person increases the
chances of infection and the de-
velopment of scar tissue. The
physician will carefully measure
and mark the ears before piercing,
because both ears may not be
exactly alike. After piercing the
ears with a sterile needle, he will
insert temporary earrings or me-
tallic wires, which are usually
worn for three or four weeks until
the wounds heal. This is a critical
period and your physician's in-
structions should be followed care-
fully to prevent infection or clos-
ure of the opening.
The small, self-piercing ear-
ring loops which are being pro-
moted across the country are not
considered safe, says Today's
These devices have sharp
points which are supposed to
pierce the ears within a few days
as they are worn. Infections re-
quiring medical treatment have
developed from the use of these
self-piercers. Furthermore, it is
difficult to be certain that the
piercers are evenly placed on the
infection or if small cysts are
present in the ear lobe. Persons
subject to keloids (scar over-
growth) or who 'have this ten-
dency in their family, or those
who are allergic to nickel or other
metals should not have their cars
A recent article in the Jour-
nal of the American Medical As-
sociation reported on two public
school nurses who were "aghast
at. the number of girls with irri-
tated, swollen and oozing ear
lobes. In a class of 80 sopho-
mores, ten had their ears pierced
in the previous three months, and
six of them reported inflammation
Ear piercing is not a very
difficult procedure, but it can be
risky in the hands of a non-
