Lobsters are not the most common thing in the world to find
in a fishing net in this section of Florida. But the regularity with
which they are showing up along the North Florida coast here of
late has many commercial fishermen excited that maybe a new
crop is moving into the area a crop that is currently bringing
about $2.00 per pound to the boat.
Not only are lobsters rare, but this seven pounder, caught by
Bob Raffield off St. Joseph's Point last Thursday is even more
rare because of its big size. Henry Butts boat, the "Mimae" also
reported catching a good sized lobster about a month ago.
Mrs. Charles Wall, secretary at Raffield Fisheries isn't concerned
about the monster lobster on her desk because he is frozen.

Recreation Committee Starts Work
A very ambitious program for the people of Port St.
Joe took its first toddling step forward Thursday night
two weeks ago with the first organizational meeting of a
committee appointed by the City Commission and headed
by George Tapper to make recommendations for a compre-
hensive program of recreational needs in our city.
It was brought out by the chairman at the organiza-
tional meeting that successful completion of such an am-
bitious undertaking would need three things, essentially:
competent planning by professional people, a plan for all
age groups in the city and the tacit approval of the tax-
payers of the community to dig into their pockets a little
The entire committee seemed to be reluctant to go
ahead without some proper advice. Chairman Tapper
suggested that the committee try to obtain competent
help in this field from either the state or the federal gov-
ernment. The committee went along with this and Tap-
per agreed to try and obtain this type help.
Everyone agreed that a program that didn't encom-
pass all age groups in the city would not be complete. It
was brought out that many things have been attempted

But you don't hear of this kind of faith any more.
Nobody believes that the Yankees will win the pennant
this year; much less the World Series.
The fans have deserted.
J. Lamar has defected to the Atlanta Braves (who
are currently contending for first place on a winning
streak); James Hill is now a died in the wool, veteran,
Pittsburg Pirate fan and apparently T. C. Smith doesn't
follow baseball anymore.
Albert Thames, a former rabid Yankee fan doesn't
show his face anymore.
Maybe the reason the Yankees went downhill is be-

At any rate, if the Yankees can change; anything

The state receives 25% of the

Twenty or more firms now

with a state 'inspector aboard

During the past three years
over three and a half million
dollars worth of treasure has
been recovered from ships that
were lost in the 16th century,
much of it found in the Vero
Beach-Ft. Pierce area where a
convoy of 11 Spanish treasure
ships were lost in 1715.
In 1964 professional treasure
hunters located the sand covered
wrecks of two of these ships
within 500 feet of shore, in eight
to 20 feet of water. Using the
most complex modern equip-

they put women and children in front of the marchers

Law Change Will
Youth In Florida
A recent change in the Social
Security law is going to benefit
many disabled young people in
Northwest Florida, according to
Ted A. Gamble, District Manager
of the Panama City, Florida, Social
Under the old law a person had
to have five years of work out of
the 10 years just before he became
disabled, regardless of his age, to
be eligible for a Social Security
check. Realizing that young peo-
ple who have worked just a short
time in the labor force sometimes
become disabled, Congress reduced
the amount of work needed for
those disabled before age 31.
Under Social Security, each cal-
endar year is divided into four
equal parts called a quarter. Cre-
dit is received when your work
during a calendar quarter is re-
ported. The new disability law
helps young people by only requir-
ing work in one-half the quarters
between the time they reach age
21 and. the time they become dis-
abled, Gamble explained. If they
become disabled prior to age 24,
they will have enough credits if
they have worked for six of the
12 quarters ending with the quar-
ter they become disabled.
Gamble urged all young people
who filed claims in the past and
were turned down because they did
not. have enough work, to file
again. They may be eligible now.
In addition, he said those recently
disabled should not delay filing a

"The Rise of Communism
by ARTHUR W. McFADDEN
(The second in a series on the
history of Communism being
printed by The Star in serial
In 1816 a number of young lio-
eral (do not confuse the word
"liberal" with "Communist") of-
ficers of the Guard used to meet
under the chairmanship of Prince
Trubetskoy, Colonel of a Regi-
ment, and at the beginning of
1817 there was founded a "So-
ciety cf Salvation." This was
kept secret from the public, but
was well known to the Emperor
(Alex I) who was familiar with
many of its members and even
read memoirs which they wrote.
(It must be understood here that
Alexander. I was a liberal and
gracious emperor, and actually
meant good, however, he was
surrounded by advisors and ad-
ministrators who actually made
the laws and in every sense of
the word, ruled Russia.) The pre-
vailing tendencies in the Society
were three: Muravyev, a high
staff officer, was in favor of the
English constitution, with a
House of Lords to act as a res-
traint upon the sovereign. Tur-
genev an authority on taxation,
in which field he strongly advo-
cated the principles of Liberal-
ism and Free Trade, had one ab-
sorbing interest, which dominat-
ed all others, and this was the
emancipation of the serfs. This,
he believed could best be achiev-
ed by the autocracy; but if the
reform were not made from
above, he was ready to work with
those who sought other ways to
it. Pestel rapidly reached a po-
litical evolution and stood for a
conspiracy to overthrow the au-
tocracy, with the murder of the
Emperor and reigning family.
But this was only to be the
preface to a gigantic social re-
form. The peasants were to be
freed, a central government es-
tablished with all the instru-
ments of power, including spies
and censorship to prevent coun-
ter-revolution; half the land was
to be divided in shares between
the whole population, in other
words, every farmer would get
a piece of land, and half was to
remain at the disposal of private
The Society of Salvation was
from the.start agreed that a po-
litical "coup d'etat" was requir-
ed. The increasing reaction and
differences in the views of its
members and the need of pro-
paganda work for obtaining
much wider support in th3 pub-
lic, induced them to abolish the
society and to substitute for it
a Society of Welfaie, with a
much mort modest program and
four differ nt sections, r which
the prin. 'al' immediate prob.
lems of i.fcrr :were to be stu-
died in de.aii.
In 1816 1 exander I instructed
his advisors to draft a liberal
constitution for the .Russian peo-
ple, however, during this time it
was noticed in him an increase
ing asperity and dislike for com-
pany and his advisers anct co-
horts kept him busy wi.vh mili-

At Troppau (Octf 1820) Alex-
ander got rew''of a mu'iny of
his own cld regiment; the men
had risen for purely military
grievances in protest against the
extreme harshness of their com-
mander, and the officers had
tried to restrain them. Metter-
nich made good use of this mu-
tiny and got from Alexander a
renunciation of his Liberal
By this time there were many
secret societies in Russia, main-
ly among the officer corps of
the Imperial army, and some
"thinkers" .of the era. They dif-
fered in kind, but all had, more
or less, a common goal, emanci-
pation of the serfs.
Alexander I died on Decem-
ber 18, 1825. Alexander's bro-
ther, Constantine, had abdicated
his right to the throne. Alexan-
der had accepted his abdication.
Alexander's next brother, Nicho-
las, who was very much younger
than his other two brothers, had
never been properly prepared
for the throne. This led to much
confusion because Alexander,
when dying, proclaimed Constan-
tine Emperor, while at the same
time,\ Constantine in St. Peters-
burg proclaimed Nicholas in
Warsaw. This was the occasion
seized by the conspirators to
make their coup d'etat. In De-

the square outside the Council of
State shouting for "Constantine
and Constitution", which later
many soldiers took for the name
of Constantine's wife. The Gover-
nor-General tried to disperse the
crowd but to no sucecss. He went
to speak to the insurgents per-
sonally but was shot in the back,
mortally wounded. Nicholas gave
the order for cannon to be
brought up, and two volleys of
grape shot cleared the square.
' The rising, of the December-
ists was almost the first attempt
of the Guard at a palace revolu-
tion that did not succeed. It was
almost the first time that had
anything like a political program.
It was unsuccessful mainly be-
cause none of the ideas which it
presented had as yet any gen-
eral support in Russia. Of the
palace revolutions it was the
last, and with it ceased forever
the dominant role of the Rus-
sian gentry; from then on bu-
reaucracy governed in Russia.
However, the Decemberist up-
rising is much more important
as a preface. The leaders of this
abortive uprising were later re-
garded (by. the Communists) as
martyrs; their rising is the first
act in the Russian Revolution.

\ ELECTRIC WATER HEATING
We're pleased to announce, along with our new lower rates
for electric service, even lower prices for our residential customers
who use only electricity to heat their household water supply,
We've mailed notices inviting such customers to
take advantage of this rate reduction by letting us know
that their household hot water supply is heated electrically.
Hope you've mailed to us the stub that qualifies you for this
water heating discount. If not, please do so now. If you've misplaced,
the notice and stub, just get in touch with our nearest office.
As you'll see in the box below, the more electricity you use, the
greater the saving-bncause the low rate of 11/4 cents
per kilowatt-hour applies to one-quarter of all electricity used
in excess of 180 kwh per month, not just to electricity
used for water heating.

the average household with an abundant hot
water supply. And the purchase price is less
than for flame-type water heaters.

A Note From Your
IGA MARKET MANAGER
We feature a complete variety of IGA
Tablerite Beef that also has the USDA
Choice stamp on it. After the Government
grader stamps the grade on the beef car-
cas, our IGA beef buyer picks out the very
best of the Choice Beef and puts the IGA
Tablerite brand on it. This method also
takes place with Swift's Premium Proten
Beef. In this way we are able to buy for
you the very best beef, whether it b IGA )
Tablerite Choice or Swift's Premium Proten.

The human body is an efficient organism. It runs like clock.
work with each vital part doing its' job. When one of these
parts breaks down or a foreign substance attacks, the body
reacts to 1he blow in a way all its own. Chemicals in the dis;
eased area begin immediately to repair the break. Often
these are'not enough and chemicals from other parts of the
body are utilized. When this happens a chemical imbalance
is caused. Your doctor examines you to determine the
amount ant type of chemicals involved. He may feel it nec-
essary to add chemicals to your system in order to defeat
the disease... this is a prescription: By his diagnosis he,
can determine which chemicals will do you the most good.
Some systems are stronger or better equipped to handle,
disease. They require less medication. Others need more
outside help. Each person is different. That is why you,
should never use another's prescription nor allow someone
else to use yours.
For the highest pharmaceutical standards, low prices:
consistent with quality and the personal attention you
can always depend upon, bring your prescriptions to
