Star Will Print
Early Next Week
'Due to Holiday
The Star will be mailed a day
early for several reasons. .
First. reason, and reason
enough, is that the Post Office
will be closed Thursday, George
Washington's birthday, and will
not distribute house 'to house
mail that day. By mailing a day
early, your Star will not be late.
The second reason is akin to
the first. Port St. Joe merchants
will be advertising a George
Washington's birthday sale next
week and it just wouldn't do for
you to get their advertisement
after the sale was a day old.
The third reason is still pre-
dicated on the, first. Next Friday
is the date for the dedication of
the new Gulf County Courthouse
and The Star will carry special
information about this event you
will want to know about in ad-
This means that all news and
advertising must be in by Mon-
day of next week at 5:00 p.m.
'The Star will be printed on
Tuesday of next week and it will
be impossible to receive any copy
later than this time and'assure
its getting in he paper.
Reported for Week
The epidemic. of breaking' and
entering cases continued in Port
St. Joe this past week with two
more cases reported over the week
end, according to Chief of Police
H. W. Griffin.
Saturday night thieves broke
into the Piggly Wiggly gaining en-
trance through the rear of. the
Piggly Wiggly owner Maurice
Hildbold told The Star that nothing
much of value was taken. He re-
ported that some candy, chewing
gum, cigarettess and magazines
along"'with less than $5.00 in
change is all that he has- found
missing. The worst damage' suf-
fered was to a cash register on
which the drawer was forced open.
During the same night, 'thieves
entered the Daisy Burger sandwich
shop on Monument Avenue, but
nothing was reported missing. A
window was broken by the thieves.
$5,000 Stolen From
White City Home
The mobile home of Mr. and Mrs.
J. G. Hersey at White City was
broken into Friday night and some
$5,100 in cash was taken, accord-
ing to Sheriff's Investigator L.
White said that the thieves en-
tered the- mobile home between
7:00 and 11:00 p.m. while Mr. and

The appointment of Tom Ford
as sales manager of pulp and pa-
perboard sales for the St. Joe Pa-
per Company was announced
Friday by J. C. Belin, president.
I Mr. Ford, who has been with
St. Joe in sales and customer ser-
vice work since 1960, was assist-
ant to the sales 'manager and
technical. advisor to sales prior
to his new assignment. He will
continue to make his headquar-
ters at Port St. Joe.
A native of Apalachicola, he
attended Chipola Junior College
in Marianna, and was graduated-
from Tulane University in 1955
with a bachelor degree in busi-
ness administration. He played
varsity football at both institu-
tions. From 1955 until joining St.
Joe he was a pilot in the U. S.

was described as around 50 years
of age, and a little over, six feet
tall, weighing 200 pounds and a
Negro girl, about 20 years of age,
approached her on the sidewalk.
Both had been in the store when
the victim had paid on an account.
The pair showed the victim an
envelope which was supposed to
have contained $10.00. The pair
said they had found it just prior
to their chance meeting. The man
claimed that a note was in the en-
velope instructing that $3,000 of
the money be given to the victim.
But 'first, she must prove she
could handle money before she re-
ceived the $3,000.
The Chambers woman took the
pair in her car to her home and
showed them a Citizens Federal
pass book showing she had money
in savings. The pair instructed her
to withdraw all but $5.00 of her
money, making- the withdrawal
$407.58. The trio then went to the
bank to cash the check They then
drove to a grocery store where the
three split up.
When the two failed to rejoin
the Chambers woman she reported
the event to Police Chief H. W.
Griffin. This was about 3:00 p.m.
after relinquishing her money at
around '12:30 p.m.
By this time the flim flam ar-
tists had fled. Local police were
joined by Gulf County Deputies
in the case and a bulletin was
flashed to points in all of North-

contractor and architect Paul Don-
ofro knocked heads Tuesday morn-
ing to decide on the penalty to be
levied against the contractor for
going' 123 days over the 350 day
contract period for construction of
the new building.
Architect Donofro recommended
the contractor be awarded 133 ex-
tra days due to inclement Weather,
failure of materials to arrive as
scheduled, change orders, errors,
and delay by Grand Jury action.
Contractor Hunt asked for 233
days over the contract'period. The
County Commission wanted to al-
low 80 days.
The bones of contention were
the days claimed lost by foul wea-
ther and the delay by Grand Jury
investigations. Commissioner Wal-
ter Graham claimed that it rained
33 days during the period and on-
'ly, part of a day most of the time.
He also contended that a former
superintendent of the contractor
.was responsible for the Grand Jury
delays and shouldn't be charged to
Donofro claimed the County
should allow the contractor 28
days for conditions resulting from
inclement weather slowing work.
Hunt wanted 48 days.-
After the discussion was over,
the County Board 'agreed to allow
the contractor 120 of his 123 days
overtime' without penalty. This
caused the contractor to be' penal-
ized $300.00. The' penalty charge of
$100.00 was based on the amount
of money the County paid daily on
borrowed money for the project.
The Board then offered its con-
gratulations to Hunt for a fine job

No Poverty Program for Abe
j Monday was the birthday of one of the great presi-
dents of this great nation-Abraham Lincoln. Next
Thursday wewill observe the birthday of another of our
past greats, George Washington.
It is too late to eulogize Lincoln and to early to talk
about Washington in this week's edition.
But, we would like to look at Mr. Lincoln for a few
moments. Many of the iiewspapers of this nation dwelt
for several column inches on the greatness of Mr. Lincoln.
We read all about Mr. Linc6ln's one year of formal school-
ing. We saw how Mr. Lincoln was raised in a log cabin
with little heat. and no lights at all. We also read how Mr.
Lincoln rose to be one of ,the presidents of this nation in
a particularly trying time-a time when we needed great-
ness probably more than welhave before or since.
The thing that we noted most about Mr. Lincoln was
that he probably wouldn't have made it today.
We: noted particularly that his family was ripe 'for
the welfare state. The father didn't make a "respectable"
living in that day. But he worked and the family made
it either because of or in spite of his earning power. But
today Mr, Lincoln, Sr., would be declared a ripe subject
for welfare payments to bring his family up out of pover-
ty. We wonder if the family would have instilled that
special quality he had to drive ahead if the Government
had done the "making ends meet" for the family while
Abe was a boy?
Note that Mr. Lincoln's father did work because he
was able to do -so and wasn't ashamed to. There is a dif-
ference in his type and the type that won't because wel-
fare will provide.
And too, Mr. Lincoln was a ripe subject for the Job
Corps. In the vernacular of today,-Abe would have been
classed\as a drop-out. He would have been immediately
taken under'some social worker's wing and "guided" in
the direction he should go. Do you think that Mr. Lin-
S oln would have ever been president of this nation if he
had not had to- "fend for himself"?
And poor Abe had to get his lessons at home by the
light of the, fireplace. No REA in those days. Abe had
it rough. -Even our poorest of families of today have it
better than did Abe.
Now don't get us wrong. We don't advocate going
back to the type of life Abe had to live. We do not fail
-o recognize the, need of welfare for those who CANNOT
provide for themselves. Neither do we believe that this
type of society in which Abe lived will produce every man
an "Abe Lincoln" merely by making him work and push
for his -"place in the sun". .
But we do wonder if maybe the ease with which Gov-
ernment today will provide cradle to grave subsistence for
those who lack-for whatever reason-hasn't taken some.
of the "American" out of Americans.
It all boils down to the fact that what we work for we
I TO THE EDITOR
I read, with just -a little bit of
tlisgust, the letter from ; George
'Vmall. As you well know, it is an
:unwritten .law among newspaper-
men that we don't answer "letters
to the editor" that take us to task
iir fear it would discourage others
ftpm writing letters, which we are
always glad to receive (Sometimes
yWe break this "law"-Wes.). Al-
:- tough I have been your brother
for a number of' years now and
knowing that mom brought us boys
.up to ;'fight our own fights and
tend to our own business, I felt
obligated to 'say a ; few words to
Mr. Small. Please don't take this
letter as a defense, of you, but ra-
ther, as an offense to Mr. Small.
Sirst of all, he takes a, lot of
. valuable newspaper .space to tell
everybody that Lyndon ain't ugly.
Now, I know for you or me to call
anybody ugly is like the "pot call-
ing the kettle black", still God gave
us enough sense to tell the differ-
ence between ugly and pretty and
believe me (pardon. me Mr. Small)
Lyndon's sure not the latter.
Mr. Small took a dig at small
town newspapers, and especially
small town newspaper editors, like
to say, nobody but Drew Pearson
and the like, had any smart at all
when it comes to having an opin-
ion. He thinks it Un-American to
disagree with the government and
I guess I would feel that way too
if I were drawing a big salary
from a Government contracted
company. The right to dissent is
what makes small newspapers such
a bad investment sometimes, they
see fit to bite the hand that feeds

HOW WILL THEY VOTE?
Of the nearly 7 million who enrolled in colleges last
fall, more than 70 per cent are under 21 years of age,
and thus will not be eligible to vote in the presidential
election in November. How politically mature are these
students, and how representative of their beliefs have
been the militant demonstrations staged on campuses all
over the country.
New light may be thrown on the political attitudes
of college students in April under the sponsorship of
Time magazine. This straw vote has been called
CHOICE 68, and the vote will take place on some 2,400
campuses. It is expected that over 5 million students
will cast ballots. The only test of voting eligibility will
be enrollment in a college or university.
There is no doubt that this event will give profess-
ional politicians some food for thought and may very
well, for good or ill, have a bearing on policies and mea-
sures advocated by many present officeholders who must
reckon with the college students who will soon become
legal voters. CHOICE 68 may not elect, a candidate offi-
cially, but unofficially, it will carry a lot of weight and
should not be approached lightly by participating stu-
POVERTY AND RIOTS
Poverty is often given as the reason for much of the
violence in our cities, and government leaders recommend
spending billions of tax dollars to provide jobs. This sup-
posed connection between poverty and riots is seldom
questioned, but Evangelist Billy Graham flatly rejects the
claim that poverty is the cause of present civil disturb-
ances. He points out, "there was no such rioting, looting
or killing of police officers in depression days when peo-
ple were much poorer." /
To many, there is far more involved in the present
breakdown of law and order than just the restlessness
born of poverty. Respect for law lies in the character of
our people rather than in their affluence,. A law-abiding
society is built on character .'and character cannot be
created or bought at will with tax dollars.
"Men are not against you; they are merely for them-
selves." -Gene Fowler
them regardless of the conse-
quences. I guess Mr. Small would
like the government to take over
all newspapers, then he could sit
back, whistle the Star Spangled
Banner and enjoy the Utopia as a
While we're talking about the
infalability of our government, I
would be pleased to hear Mr.
Small's thoughts on the good
works we are doing overseas. I
wonder if he thinks it O.K. for
the U.S. to draft American boys
to be used as cannon fodder in
Vietnam when the Vietnamese gov-
ernment, as yet, has not drafted
the first man for the defense of
that country? I would like to know,
what he thinks goes through the
minds of fathers and mothers who
have lost sons in that unglorious
war when Lyndon stands up and
says "we shall not retreat in our
fight against communism", and just
90 miles off Key West a whole nest
of these rats are growing by leaps
and bonds and our government
evidently closes its eyes to it. In
fact the CIA has 365 agents in Mi-
ami alone just to\keep the Cuban
people from overthrowing Castro,
which they could do with just a
little help from Uncle Sam.
Mr. Small went to great length
to chide you about your nice home,
etc., failing to mention the 80 hour
work week it takes to maintain
this home and to make a decent
living. He doesn't realize that we
who work for ourselves are some-
what jealous of those who make
just as much money as we do by
"working" 40 hours a week .
and negotiate for the day when
that will be cut to 30 hours .
with more pay.
And as for welfare, maybe we do
blast welfare too much. Maybe we
don't really look at the good side
of welfare. There is no one among
us that would deny a person a liv-
ing if he or she were unable to
provide for themselves. What we
hate with a passion are the people
who get on national TV and say,
"Hell no, we won't work, we can
make more on welfare." This is
what we are against, not the peo-
ple who can't help themselves. He
took issue with you for wanting
the Welfare Office in Port St. Joe
despite your opposition to the na-
tional spectrum of welfare. His
thinking,. of course, is the think-
ing of the national politic, "give
unto those who give unto you" re-
gardless of whether this giving is
in the best interest of the masses.
As to being tired of reading
about the negative side of our
country, I have known people who
cancelled subscriptions to maga-
zines and newspapers because they
didn't agree with editorial policy.
Maybe Mr. Small will follow this
ilk and march blindly down the
path of oblivion with all those who
have no room in their minds for
talk that isn't filled with "flower
power." The saddest part about
our press today is the fact that the
discontents are growing fewer and
fewer, that men are all falling into
line with those who would believe
that this great country is right in
everything that it does. They fail
to see that imperfect man cannot
run a perfect Utopia where the
only way to discourse and dissent
is to march on Washington and

We've been getting a lot of mail lately, especially from service-
men, complaining that The Star is arriving later in the week than
it has in the past. (No complaints at home though-about prompt-
ness of delivery, that is.)
We really couldn't say why the paper is arriving later than
usual, boys. We still mail it at the same time as we have for 15
years. Could be that the ZIP code needs greasing.
We appreciate your eagerness, though.
Thbusands of jokes have been told about how hard it is
to understand women. And most of them are deserved.
But, if I live to be a, 100, I'll never understand politicians.
Just the other day for instance, Bobby Kennedy pledged his
undying support to Lyndon in 1969. "It's Lyndon all the way
for me, boy", he said. You could just see him thumping his
chest, jutting out his chin and shaking his locks out of his eyes.
He sounded as if he would die for Lyndon, if need be. He was
that serious and convincing sounding.
Then, the very next day, Bobby took up his verbal scythe
and cut the feet from under Lyndon concerning his Vietnam pol-
icy. Now, which Bobby Kennedy can you believe?
Well, it looks like the special Legislative session on education
is all but over.
Again politicians mystify me. After several months of agoniz-
ing appraisal of the education situation by the Committee on
Quality Education to come up with a plan changing Florida's educa-
tion program for the better after both the FEA and Governor
Kirk and Legislative leaders poured heaps of praise onthe heads
of the committee for "the answer" to education after all of
this, all we get is an expanded Minimum Foundation program. It
seems that about the only recommendation of the Committee that
was adopted was the part which said we need more taxes to finance
the program. But, you could hardly get by that one, could you.
And the miracle of it is, Governor Kirk will come out smelling
like a rose. The Legislature will pass the package without a ref-
erendum; the Governor will veto the bill; enough Republicans
will "cross" the Governor to override his veto. The people will
get a needed higher tax bill for education and the Governor can
still keep his promise of imposing no new taxes upon the people.
In these circles it's "politics"; in business it's "finagling".

FBI Says Increasing Crime Rate No. 1 Problem
"Growing crime in America is
our number one internal problem",
FBI agent Bill Ballyard told the
Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club Tues-
day at their noon meeting.
Ballyard said that statistics for
the first six months of 1967 show
that crime had increased 17% over
the same period in 19866. The year
1966 increased 11% over the pre-
vious year. "Crime is increasing in
America seven times as fast as the
population", said Ballyard.
Crime costs Americans $27 bil-
lion dollars a year in damages and
property lost or destroyed.

Self Employed Must Report
'67 Earnings By April 15th
People who work for themselves
must make social security self-
employment tax reports on their
1967 earnings by April 15, accord-
ing to John V. Carey, District Man-
ager of the Panama City Social Se-
curity office. Persons who were
self-employed in 1967 and who
had i net profit of $400 must pay
their social security taxes when
they file their tax return. It is,
therefore, extremely important that
care be taken to enter your correct
social security number on your
self-employment tax return.
Carey emphasized that the bene-
fits to which you or.your, survivors
may be entitled are determined by
the amount of credit on your so-
cial security record. If there is an
error in the amount of your in-
come or your social security num-
ber, you could possibly fail to re-
ceive social security credits. The
benefits for self-employed persons
are the same as for persons who

his laboratory with able researchers.

with sentries on guard duty. The
dogs are used because they can
smell an entruder as far as a
half mile away. Their hearing is
20% better than man's and they

State Searching foi
TALLAHASSEE-The state of
Florida is searching this week for
one thousand missing owners of
unclaimed personal property val-
ued at more than $180,000, Comp-
troller Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson,

Comptroller Dickinson, who is
Administrator of the Florida Un-

his office receives many kinds of
valuables, from forsaken safety

Beginning Monday, February 5,
a series of advertisements listing
1,000 could-be claimants, began in

The Star. In addition, letters were
mailed to 600 of these persons at
their last-known addresses.

This is public service in its truest
"However, such a service, to be
effective, relies on public cooper-
ation. If someone sees the name of
a relative or friend among ads of
this type, he is urged to notify the
person in question.
"Since 1962,', when the law was
enacted, almost $500,000 has been
restored to owners of property, af-
ter it was reported to the Comp-
troller's Office in Tallahassee,"
Dickinson explained that, "after
deducting the amount returned to

is deposited in the State School

At the annual dinner meeting of
the St. Joseph Historical Society
held at the Seven Seas in Panama
City, Friday evening, February 9.
Dr. Mode L. Stone of Florida Stato
University of Tallahassee, was the
guest speaker. He was presented by
the president, Jesse V. Stone.
Dr. Stone, who is dean of men
at the University, is recognized as
a man of distinction throughout
the state and nation, especially in
the field of education. He is the
recipient of many honors and only
in recent months the University de-
dicated a full day to him-a unique
experience in the history of Flor-
ida State lUniversity. Dr. Stone
was accompanied by his charming
In his own distinctive manner,
Dr. Stone brought to a most inter-
ested listening group the history
of Gulf County, beginning before
the founding of the old city of St.
Joseph. His own family, dating
back to the very earliest history
of this area, he was able to spice
his talk with memorable family
anecdotes and old folk tales. He
expressed appreciation of the re-
markable history of this county
from the beginning to the present
day. He gave an account of the
brief and stormy life of the old
city of St. Joseph and its contri-
bution to the state of Florida and
he also told of the founding of the
present city of Port St. Joe, by his
own kinsman, Terrell Higdon Stone
in whose honor the T. H. Stone
Memorial State Park was dedicated
September 6, 1967. Among other
things, Dr. Stone told the group
that the county seat had been mov-
ed seven times.
The president, Jesse Stone, in-
stead of giving the usual annual
report of. the accomplishments of
the Society, chose to lift up only
three projects: completion of the
histories of the signers of Flor-
ida's first Constitution; the out-
standing achievement in improve- The members of the society, their dinner and had the unique exper-

pervision of Mrs. R. H. Brinson.
The president highly commended
these two women for their contri-
butions, as well as the other mem-
bers of the Society for personal
dedication to this organization.
The president further stated that
since most of the projects are long-
time projects, no one administra-
tion could claim credit for them,
and that the accomplishments of
this small group of 12 members
and an extremely small budget
through the 12 years of its his-
tory has been truly amazing.
Officers re-elected to serve in
the new year were installed by
Mrs. Ned Porter in an impressive
service. They are: Jesse V. Stone,
president; Mrs. Charles Brown,
vice-president; Mrs. Bill Mosely,
secretary; Mrs. William Howell,
Jr., treasurer; Mrs. R. H. Brinson,
corresponding secretary and con-
tinuing chairman of the cemetery

is what makes
our white bread better!
We're talking of course about Jane Parker White Breadj.
We use a bit more milk than we have to, to give you a richer loaf
We never use milk substitutes.
We use a bit more shortening than we have to,
to give you a softer loaf... the way you like it.
We use a bit more sugar than we have to, to give Jane Parker more flavor.
We use a baking process that produces
a velvety-soft, silky-textured slice...free of holes.
We pack it fresh from the oven in a reusable plastic.bag,
with a twist-tie for convenient reclosing.
We do one more thing that hardly anybody does.
We date our Jane Parker White Bread.
It's the only absolute guarantee of freshness
you have...unless you bake your own.
And speaking of guarantees, we-unconditionally guarantee you'll like it.

Unlike an old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrip-
tion to do a thorough Job... especially the same one for
which it was originally. Intended. Drugs lose their potency
over a number of years and some increase in strength
through evaporation. Not only might a drug prove ineffec-
tive but It may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-,
tions could also affect the prescription. Chemical changes ;
can occur within thes qukd, capsule or tablet. Then, too,
there is the constant danger of a child reaching for an old
prescription. ThnRing it's candy... or simply imitating you'
...he might swallow the contents. The results may be tragic.
Never depend upon a prescription lasting forever. Let your
doctor re-prescribe for your present condition... after all
he Is the expert! And once you have regained your health,
always destroy the remainder of your prescription.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always depend upon, bring your prescriptions to

upset victory to Monticello. The
Sharks had tromped all over Mon-

Port St. Joe's trouble was the
same spectre that has haunted

evening while the Monticello team
picked up 13 free points.
David Langston led the Shark
