New'Process Promises Business Boost
For St. Joe Paper Container Division
St. Joe Paper Company is a pio-
neer in and one of the nation's
few producers of a new wax-im-
pregnated board, according to
Flo'e Brewton, sales: manager of
thej 'SJPC Container Division.
Brewton revealed the new process
to .the Port' St: Joe Rotary Club
last Thursday and said that the
new process has promises 60 being
a boost in business for St. Joe',S
17 container plants.
The new process' impregnates
hot wax into the fiber and pores of
the kraft board made by the paper
company, making it virtually wa-
ter proof. When the sheets of
kraft are laminated into a .box
making board, it is again coated
with wax to increase the water
proofing of the box to be manu-
"This gives St. Joe a product
to sell to produce packers, chick-
en and meat packers, fish,'pack-
ers and many other uses where a
wet product is packed or ice is
used in transportation", Brewton
said. These products have been
packed in wooden boxes in the
past but wood is getting scarce and
the wooden boxes high in price, the
sales manager, leaving a wide open
market for the, new water roof
paper boxes. 1 I
Brewton said-that the market for
containers by the wet packers is
almost unbelievable and the paper
board product is beginning 'to
"catch on". Containers used by
Florida produce .and chicken pack-
ers, alone, amounts to billions of
boxes each year, he said.

that by the year-2000, Fldrida in-

In his address, Ellzey stated
that the Chamber during the

ber" chamber rather than a
"Board of Directors" chamber.
The new president proposed a
morning coffee break meeting of
members on the first Monday of

press themselves prior to meet-
ings of _the Board of Directors
Ellzey made two requests of
those present. "If you're going

Your Home Deserves Your Support
And so begins another year of operation by the
Chamber, of Commerce. New officers were installed
Monday night; reports were heard on last year's accom-
plishments; and the usual "go get 'em messages" were.
This is not to say, "Ho hum, a new year, new officers,
so what?" This is to say that.a new year calls for a new
start; renewed effort. The new start and the renewed ef-
fort must come from everyone of us. We cannot sit idly
"by and expect the officers of the Chamber to work won-'
ders for our City.
The new Chamber officers no doubt have visions of
what they wish to accomplish. The last slate had visions
'and they accomplished much. We often hear the attitude:
"What has the Chamber done? We can't see a thing they
have accomplished". This is probably true if you are
not a member and supporter of the'Chamber. We mean
that is probably true that you can't see what has been
-accomplished!. But if you were a membgr-a working
member-you would be a part of the team, and could
easily see the immensity of the Chamber's activities every
day of the week.
We think that the biggest job the Chamber could
undertake during the coming year ... and the one which
would do the most good for our community .. is to sell
1the community to the people. Salesmen tell us that the
trick to selling is to have something to sell. We firmly
believe that the Chamber has something to sell our local
residents. We. believe-' in this town, and we believe in
supporting it. We think that persuading everyone to be-
lieve in, and support this community is a worthwhile pro-
A few years back we lived in the city of Warner Rob-
ins, Geqrgia. The people there were a transient people.
We recall one advertiser in the' paper for which we work-
ed had a slogan in his page ad every week: "This is my
bme, I have no other!" Corn?. Sure, in the purest sense.
But isn't it true of you?, Isn't it true of me?
I wouldn't think of defacing my home or doing some-
thing that would cause it to be scarred or torn down.
The- same holds true for my greater home: my home
'town. If the Chamber of Commerce can spend the year
'instilling in everybody that lives in Port St. Joe that this
is now ;hme, and we should treat it as such, they will
'have accomplished a great deal.
But, as we said before, the officers can't do kit alone.
Everyone who considers Port St. Joe "home" will have
to become members of the Chamber, and help with the
work. The Chamber has a place for everybody. Their
lack of accomplishment in the past has only been mea-
sured by the lack of support by the citizens of our com-
Join the Chamber boost Port St. Joe and
see how fast you will come to realize that Port St. Joe is
your home and deserves your support.

CHARACTER IS NECESSARY a
Almost everyone looks forward to the day when t
society will be so organized that all will be happy, and t
free from worry and burdensome responsibility. .
Almost everyone looks back occasionally and won-
ders whether the easy-going ways of former days did
not bring a sense of peace and well-being that is lacking
in this modern age. d
In short, we look forward and backward, realizing
that today's tension is uncomfortable.
Can we expect that the day will ever come when life
will be easy, quiet and beautiful, and when all will enjoy
L. P. Jacks, an English philosopher, says that society
is like an individual. The higher the climp, the less se-
cure is our position.
Jacks believes that character is necessary today more
than ever before. The world of tomorrow is not going to
offer an easy life, even though it may mean shorter work-
ing hours 'and longer vacations. Our obligations will in-
crease as our position improves; any failure to do our
duty will be quickly followed by an inevitable crash.
There is no alternative. Honesty, fairness, and honor
are essential. They must be cultivated in the home and
in the school. The good things of life do not long remain
in the control of those who are unfit to use them.
HAPPY 'BIRTHDAY, MR. 'BALL
Today, Mr. Edward Ball is 80 years of age. If you
were to meet the man, you would say he carries his age
well if you knew how old he was. If you did not know,
you wouldn't believe that he has 80 years behind him.
There's one thing for sure these past 80 years
were not idle for Mr. Ball. He has accomplished much.
He has been, and still is, a man of action .. a man for
getting things done.
Besides being a man of action, Mr. Ball is not a man
of faint heart. He goes after the task of the day with all
his might, and doesn't waver. We admire that in him or
any other man.
Mr. Ball catches a lot of rhubarbs sent his way. But
anybody who does anything receives the same attention.
The thing that we think stands rost in his favor, is that
he refuses to let the rhubarbs bother him, but we believe
he has learned what is rhubarbs and what is true earnest
criticism and is guided by this fact. He will not waver
in the face of rhubarbs. and we admire this.
We noted an article in the Tallahassee Democrat
Sunday that stated, "everybody addresses Mr. Ball as Mr.
Ball. Nobody calls him Ed". But Mr. Ball returns the
'courtesy and addresses everybody by his proper name.
Not many men reach the age of 80, still active. Fewer
menr reach the heights reached by Mr. Ball at all. We
say again, we admire him,; and wish him many more
birthdays and a continued active life ahead.

Of License Law
Colonel H. N. Kirkman, Director
f the Department of Public Safe-
y, this week corrected some mis-
.nderstanding about Florida's new
-river re-examination law by say-
ng that no driving test, traffic
aw test or medical examination
will be required.
In response to many inquiries
about the law which was passed
n the 1967 session of the legisla-
ure but does not become effec-
ive until 1971 Kirkman said, "Dri-
'ers must pass tests on eyesight,
Learning and the ability to read and
understand highway signs only."
"Even with these limited tests
valuable results are expected from

with vision and hearing defects,"

As a rule we take the editorializing of Huntley-
Brinkley "news" presentations with a grain of salt. We
do watch the program, regularly, for its news content,
and have been able to sift the news from the editorial with
little difficulty. Their attempts to hide editorial under
the heading of "news" is ill-disguised.
A "news" article the other night (Thursday, I think
it was) sort of miffed us, raising our dander and turning
our nose and ears red.
In reporting the incident where the Dallas County,
Alabama Sheriff, who happens to be Negro, arrested two
white policemen for allegedly beating up a Negro prisoner.
Huntley-Brinkley seemed to think it was beyond belief
that a Negro sheriff could arrest two white policemen in
the South and get 'away with it. They minced over the
fact that the South was "progressing" finally to the point
of civilization-living under the law. -
But what Huntley-Brinkley and ,others like them
fail to realize, nor have they investigated, the South has
been law abiding for years.
Another thing that might cause H-B to sit up and
take notice, is the fact that the nation's only Negro sher-
iff is in the South; and we have two of them.
We personally resent the implication by H-B that
the South can not fairly administer justice. We resent
the program's implications that the South fails to .treat
the Negro fair. We resent the fact that the implication
was that the South would impair anyone from performing
his duty, under the law, regardless of his color.
But when we consider where Mr. Huntley and Mr.
Brinkley live and the way things are conducted there, may-
be we can have a mite of understanding for the wonder-
ment of Mr. H and Mr. B. Things don't work where they
live, like they do in the South.
When we have demonstrations in the South, we try
to take measures to see that the demonstrators don't
break the law by evolving into destructive riots.
When crime gets so that innocent people can't walk
the streets in Southern cities, we equip the police to cope
with the situation at hand.
In the South, we believe in protecting the majority
of our citizens, who are decent law-abiding citizens. We
do not coddle those who would prevent this pursuit of
happiness this right of innocent citizens to be pro-
We would invite Mr. Huntley and Mr. Brinkldey to
visit the South and see for themselves, that we are truly
civilized Americans which is more than we can say
for parts of New York and Washington.

Tips to Citizens
Tax Collector Harland Pridgeon
told the Port St. Joe Kiwanis
Club Tuesday that now is the time
for property owners to check val-
uation placed on their property in
the Tax Assessor's office, and de-
clare proper values for real and
personal property for tax purposes.
Pridgeon said this was especially
necessary where a person has sold
or bought property during the past
year, to make sure the proper per-
son is charged, for taxes. .
Pridgeon pointed out that coun-
ty taxes would be delinquent on
April 1, after which time a three
percent delinquent penalty would
be applied to all tax bills unpaid.
If the taxes are not paid, they will
be offered in a tax sale on June 3.
The Tax Collector said new auto
tags would go on sale May 1 of
this year with the tag purchasing
deadline June 30. The new tags
will be good for 13 months and
prices are the same as last year.
Pridgeon's office is mailing out
tag registration slips this year, so
that car owners may ascertain if
they are buying tags for the same
car as last year before coming to
the tag office. Pridgeon said that
the registration mailed out by his
office must be brought in to pur-
chase a new tag or change owner-
ship on an automobile.

Gulf County Cancer Unit Preparing to
Launth Annual Educational C-amnaian
With emphasis centered on can-
cer's seven warning signals, the
Gulf County Unit of the American
Cancer Society is preparing to
launch its 1968 educational and
fund-raising Crusade'.on March 28.
Once again, April has been set
aside by Congress as Cancer Con-
trol Month and President Johnson
is expected shortly to make the
period officially Cancer Control
Month by proclamation.
According. to William J. Rish,
Gulf County Crusade .Chairman,
the Crusade 4Aill focus attention
on the-fact that' f66 many peopleJ
are not familiar with just which
early signs could indicate cancer.
"While ,the public "is, slowly ac-
quiring knowledge of the signals,"
Mr. Rish continued, "surveys show
that too many cannot name most
of the signals..=A recent study,
sponsored by the American Cancer
Society, revealed that 69% of
those sampled could identify a
single warning sign. Yet, in a sim-

ley and George Williams.
The Tigers won the championship, which
they share with a South Florida team, last week
in the state tournament. Coach David Jones
Tigers have won six championships since he
became coach in 1955.
ilar survey in 1955 the figure wa:
60%, while a Gallup poll taken ir
1948 showed only 51% could name
a correct signal.
"A nine percentage point gain
in awareness of this vital informa-
tion is most welcome, but it is a
slow step forward over an 11-year
period. That's why the, Cancer So:
city is stressing the value of
knowing these signals.
"The basic, yet simple, warning
signals that could mean the pres-
ence of cancer serve'as an alert to
aid in early diagnosis; when cancer
is in its earliest and most 'curable
stage," Mr. Rish said.
Plans for the all-out April Cru-
sade, Mr. Rish explained, include
nationwide distribution of 40,000,-
000 leaflets listing the seven warn-
ing signals of cancer. Every fam-
ily in Gulf County will receive this
leaflet, most of them to be distrib-
uted in person by Cancer Society
volunteer workers during April.
The seven warning signals of
cancer,, as itemized by Mr. Rish
are: 1) Unusual bleeding or dis-
charge. 2) A lump or thickening
in the breast or elsewhere. .3) A
sore that does not heal. 4) Change
in bowel or Ibladder habits. 5)
Hoarseness or cough. 6) Indiges-
tion or difficulty in swallowing. 7)
Any change in a wart or mole.
Should any of 'these signals last
longer than two.'weeks, Mr. Rish
urged an early visit to the doctor.
Only he can, tell if cancer is pres-
The 1968 April Crusade will beat
the slogan,.M. Rish concluded, "It
nakes sense to know the seven
warning signals of cancer. And it
makes sense' to give to the Ameri-
can Cancer Society."
