Port St. Joe Volunteer Fireamn wade through Grove which burned Monday night, taking the
piles of foam to fight the fire in the house in Oak life of J. T. Porter.
l T. Porter Burned'To Death
Ini H...ouse Fire Monday Nite
Fire claimed the life of f'. T.
Porter, age 44, Monday night
when he was apparently trapped
in his home in Oak Grove which
had caught fire.
Porter is the second fatality
by fire in Port St. Joe this year.
Firemen were told that Por-
Ster was seen in the house as they
arrived to extinguish the Iblaze
and foam was putl ~to: use to try
.and 'smother the fire as -quickly
as possible in the area where
Porter had been seen. But the
fire was already te !hot for fire-
men to make effective ruse of
their foam apparatus and Porter
was burned beyond recognition
before his body could be xremov-
ed from the blaze.
Judge Sam P. Husband stated
that he had three witnesses who
saw Porter in the house, 'lying
on'a couch, but the fire was too
hot, even, then seen after the
discovery of the fire, for his
body to be removed.
Husband said that no .coroner's
inquest was held because of. the
witnesses who saw Porter enter
the house and' those who, saw,
him in the house after it caught
Firemen had rumors that there
was at least one 'otter man in
the house, but a close 'emini-
tion of the ruins dhwed so
trace of anyone
else being. in
Porter was 44 years of age,
and a life-long resident of Port
St. Joe. He was a, veteran of
World War II.
Funeral services for the burn
victim were h e I d yesterday
at 3:00 p.m. with graveside ser-
vices at Holly Hill Cemetery,

Sarge. owd Welcomes Santa Saturday Morning
Downtown Port St. Joe was crowded with people Satur-
day morning, who showed up to witness the annual Christmas
parade, produced by the Port St. Joe Jaycees and the Retail
The parade this year consisted of 59 units, containing
some of the most beautiful floats that have ever been entered
in the local parade. The beauty was also emphasized by the
presence of Miss Linda Fitts, "Miss Florida" for 1969 and
Miss Carole Lamberson, Port St. Joe's "Jr. Miss".
The heavy emphasis in the floats this year was on the
religious theme, and all three winners in the float contest
had this theme incorporated in their presentations.
Taking first place prize money of $100.00 was the Joy
Club of Port St. Joe with their nativity scene, in the photo
at left. Second place winner of $50.00 was Eta Upsilon Soror-
ity, perennial winners of float prize money, with their sugges-
tion to "Let Love Bloom". The Port St. Joe 'Lions Club took
the $25.00 third prize with their float promoting the theme of
"Peace On Earth".
Santa Claus brought up the rear of the parade on Port
St. Poe's fire truck pumper. -Star photos

We think the Times-Union has very explicitly ex-
pressed the mood of the people of the nation toward the
senseless destruction, the interruption of studious stu-
dents and the total chaos caused in certain universities by
a few unwashed, ill-mannered, boorish people-many of
whom are not even students of any university.
We believe that the chaos on the campus caper is just
before coming to an end. We base this belief on utter-
ances of Supreme Court Justice Hugo L. Black in a tele-,
vision interview last week.
Black said "Nothing gives demonstrators the right
to tramp streets-such as those of Chicago-or assemble'
on private or government property. The Constitution
doesn't say that any man shall have. a right to say any-
thing he wishes, anywhere he wants to". This takes' in a
lot of territory including college campuses which are
all supported by public or private money, and, according
to Black's statement are "off limits" to demonstrators.
When Walace-T.ylor were de-
feated in the 1948 presidential
elections, Eugene Dennis, Com-
munist Party leader, stated:
"The low Wallace vote cannot
negate or obscure the historic:
service the Progressive Party
performed, or its important role
in the campaign." Dennis further
stated that, "The Wallace forces
demonstrated it is possible to or-
ganize a third party in the Unit-
ed States and put it on the bal-
lot. They created some of the
pre-requisites' for assuring the
new party's future growth in
strength and influence as a mass
People's party, as a unified anti-'
war and anti-monopoly party."

Criminality Is NotDissent
One is inclined to wonder whether the phase of view-
ing campus anarchists who run roughshod over the per-
sons and property of others as "misunderstood" is finally
Or is the capacity of some for enduring the abuse of
the life and property of others so great that these riots
will continue to be condoned by a substantial segment of
Would a commission formed to investigate the riots
at San Francisco State College find that "there were provo-
cations including such destruction that the Academic
Senate voted to close the school down for nearly a month
and the acting president was roughed up. However, we
can but conclude that this was an administrative riot?"
Would such a commission, looking into the New York
Ti-;,,erk.itv incident conclude: "the members of the Stu-
dents for a Democratic Society were being slightly over-
playful when they battered down a metal door at an
auditorium but they were baited beyond endurance by
the fact that New York Times editor James Reston was
speaking from the rostrum."?
Or perhaps an exhaustive study could delve into the
incident immediately preceding and find that their tender
love for Communist butcher Ho Chi Minh made their
assault upon the person of South Vietnam's permanent ob-
server to the United Nations "regrettable but understand-
The occurrence at Fordham University where the dean
of student affairs 37-year-old Martin Meade suffered
a heart attack after being barricaded in his office by a
group which would not leave his office until he acceded
to their demands is plenty serious enough to warrant con-
sideration by a grand jury.
What is happening is not new. The technique for
such riots, absurd demands, physical and verbal abuse,
disruption and destruction is spelled out in a host of text-
books and manuals on "revolution" ranging from Lenin
to Ho Chi Minh.
It is based upon the premise that a settled society's
will to resist is weaker than the will of the dedicated revo-
lutionaries to simply shove it in the face and walk all over
its prostrate form. .
The United States, with its.tradition of freedom of
dissent is a fertile field for revolutionary machinations.
And apparently someone, somewhere along the line has'
concluded that the freedoms enjoyed by Americans can
be destroyed by a calculated abuse of' these freedoms.
This need not happen. -
There are laws against assault and battery, against
destruction of property, against disturbance of the peace
and against riots. .
We have been fed an unbelievable amount' of gibberish
garlanded with abstruse terms which is to the effect that
anybody is allowed to do almost anything if he does it
for a "cause". -
A logical outgrowth of this type of thinking is that any
action society takes to defend itself against such an at-
tack is "repression". And perhaps the greatest con job
in history has been carried out 'on this particular subject.
By this time it is our belief that the great majority of
Americans who have watched these developments with
chagrin as they have unfolded, have now had more than
No doubt the great majority of students whose educa-
tion has been disrupted by such tactics have also had more
than enough. It is they who would be done the biggest fa-

Were ideAtified, isolated and charged.
Administrative penalties are not sufficient. Sus-
pension from college is not the legal penalty for criminal
acts although it certainly should be the college penalty.
Prosecution under state law' should be pursued. And
any attempts to impede the administration of justice
should be met with prosecution as it would be under nor-
mal criminal proceedings.
A society that permits a college president to be man-
handled, a diplomat to be egged and assaulted, a college'
dean to be held forcibly and takesno action is indeed. a

We hear some belly-aching about the water, sewer and gar-
bage collection bills here in Port St. Joe. Every so often, we
can run up on someone complaining' about their bills now that
the rates have been increased to where the services pay thier own
But this can't be too bad at least we don't hear complaints
about the service. And, with the systems paying their own way,
the service should get better.
The only complaint made on the water bills at the City Com-
mission meeting was by Charlie Brock, the City Clerk. And he
doesn't have any room to complain. As he says, "He's just com-
plaining because he always complains". He's good natured about
it though, he offered to quit taking a bath every other day to keep
his water bill down. Those "bathless" days are the odd days of
the week, if you want to regulate your contacts with Charlie.

One must remember that Supreme Court Justices do
not go about making rash or irresponsible statements in
public. When they directly answer a question, or make
a statement, there has been' a great deal of thought given
to the answer. He knows what he is saying. Otherwise,
one gets the ambiguous, "round robin" answers so char-
acteristic of politicians and others in positions of import-
ance. A definite statement means something.
We, interpret Justice Black's definite statement to
mean, in plain language, "just go ahead, punks, show
yourself, demonstrate to your heart's content. We are
serving notice now, that the law enforcement people have
laws by which to arrest you and the Supreme Court will
not bail you out".
We take it from Justice Black's statements that the
Supreme Court, too, has finally realized that the law-
abiding majority of this country have had enough.
