PORT ST JOE, FLORIDA, 32456 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1968
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1968
In browsing through a magazine the other day, we
came across an item about the late Nicholas Murray But-
ler. Who's he you say? So did we. But the late Mr. But-'
ler was a former president of Columbia University, that
institute of higher learning now so torn by strife and
rebellion. He was President of the institution for over
forty years, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and at one time
a candidate for the Vice-Presidency of the United States.
Butler was surely scheduled for anonymity until re-
cent shenanigans at Columbia resurrected his memory.
How can one operate a university on a dignified plane and
be a former Vice-Presidential candidate and expect not
to be forgotten?
Butler was considered the foremost college executive
of his time, with a dignity that awed faculty and students
alike. When he spoke educators everywhere listened!
He set up five tests of "the evidence" of an education:
"Correction and precision in the use of the mother tongue;
refined and gentle manners, the result of fixed, habits of
thought and action; sound standards of appreciation of
beauty and worth, and a character based on these stan-
dards; power and habit of reflection;, efficiency, or the
power to do."
Probably quite a few of today's students (and adults)
would have flunked these tests; some, however, would have
rated high on the "power to do" part. In Dr. Butler's day
Columbia students were expected to be gentlemen but,
as he once observed, this could be difficult at times for,
"One of the embarrassments of being a gentleman is that
you are not permitted to be violent in asserting your
This is one point we would' like to make concerning
the new year of 1970 which will be ushered upon the scene
tonight at 12:01. The new year might just .conceivably
be a better year if we all try our best to be "gentlemen"
about all things. It's true that some of the sensationalism
which we have come to expect so often of late, will sort
of die out if we assume this credo of Mr. Butler's. The day
and the year may seem sort of "ho-hum" after the excite-
ment of our more outspoken years. But if we would try
harder during the coming year, to be gentlemen in our
every dealing, we would find an unusual atmosphere dawn-
ing. in our nation. The energies now wasted with need-
less bickering can no doubt engender all kinds of .progress.
This all sounds good, but we all know it will never
Be "Gentlemen" About All Things
Taxes Pass the
$2 Billion Mark
Taxes and other revenue collect-
ed by the Florida state govern-
ment and by all local governments
together, passed the two billion
dollar mark for the first time last
year, the Florida State Chamber of
Commerce stated in its Weekly
Business Review released yester-
These Florida taxes tallied to
$2,196.100,000, an increase of 12
per cent over the previous year
and 50 per cent more than five
years ago. Only state county, dis-..
trict and municipal taxes, licenses,
fees, etc., are included in this to-
The comparable' increases in
these taxes nationwide 'were nine
per cent and 41 per cent respect-
State and local taxes may be
classified roughly under three
headings; property, consumer-type
and fees. In Flqrida, taxes paid
on real, personal and intangible
property came to $878.4 million
last year, 16 per cent more than
during the previous year. Consu-
mer-type taxes totaled $967.8 mil-
lion, up seven per cent. Fees, li-
* censes and the like came to $549.9
million, an increase of 18, per cent.
In terms of each Floridian's
share, this tax total meant $366
for each man ,woman and child, 11
per cent over the previous year.
Twenty-eight states had a higher
tax than did Florida. The national
average was $385 last year.

An Accepted Fact of Life
A New York restaurant has celebrated its 100 years
of operation by serving meals for one day at their 1868
prices. Here is the 100-year-old price list: corned beef and
cabbage, 4 cents; veal cutlet, 5 cents; beef steak, 4 cents;
roast chicken, 10 cents; pie, 2 cents; coffee, 1 cent. Dur-
- ing its one-day centenial observance, the restaurant lost
$5,000 for one very obvious reason. The meal that cost 12
cents a hundred years ago is now $9.50. Another indica-
tion of the decline in the value of the doll r is the current
"living wage" which is estimated at about $125 per week
for an' average Americaif family. In 1904, a Committee
of. the Chicago Bureau of Charities agreed that no family
could live comfortably on less than one .dollar a week per
While the foregoing .statistics may appear irrelevant
today, they do serve to illustrate a fact about the U.S.
economic system that few seem to appreciate. That fact
is that in spite of inflation, living standards have risen
uninterruptedly year after year as a result, of increasing
productivity. The rise of mass production and mass dis-
tribution in a free competitive market have been the ma-
jor contributing factors in preserving the purchasing pow-
er of the dollar.
Many years ago, the nation's more progressive retail-
ers introduced the merchandising philosophy of moving
the greatest possible volume of goods at minimum prices.
This philosophy is basic to the merchandising system to-
day. It has been a logical development of the free market.
Our competitive mass distribution system is the surest
guarantee that consumers will continue to enjoy maximum
benefits of high productivity. Fortunately, a hundred
years ago freedom in the marketplace was an accepted
fact of life. If we, ae wise, we will accept it.as a fact of
life today-and seek to protect it against the invasion of
"The Rise of Communism In U.S.A."
by ARTHUR W. McFADDEN
A thorn was plunged into the
sidWe of the Communist Party
when on September 20, 1950, the
U. S. Congress passed the Inter-
'nal Security Bill. This bill pro-
vided that: ,
(1) All Communists were re-.
quired to register with the De-
partment of Justice; (2) all
"'front" organizations and their
-officers were also required to. re-
gister; (3) provisions were made
for the iriternYnent of potential
saboteurss and. spies in time of
'*ar, insurrection, or Invasion;
(4) all Communist groups were'
required to report their finan-
eFal activities and label their'
propaganda (5) C o m m u nists
J would be denied Federal jobs
and passports; (6) subversive
aliens would be deported; (7) the
statute of limitations on espion-
age, would be extended from 3
to 10 years, and (8) a five-man
'"subversive activities control
board," designated by the Presi-
.,dent, would administer the act.
However, on September 22nd,
President Truman vetoed the
bill. Within an hour of the Pres-
ident's veto, the House of Rep-
resentatives over-rode the veto
and on the following day-the
Senate took similar action.
The Communist Party immed-
,Iately started their propaganda
*.against the bill and labeled it a
"blueprint for racism,"
After Stalin's death of MiarM i

came embroiled in factional dis-
putes 'and bickering. The unrest
in the Party continued. In Rus-

side the geographical boundaries
of the Soviet Union. Many Com-
n.unists resigned from party or-
ganizations, and others called for
independence from Moscow.
Stalin's death had a profound
effect-on the Communist Party,
USA. Thousands of' American
Communists left the party.
Those who remained loyal to the
Party were divided into factions.
'On November 9, 1957, in New
*York, the Communist Party, USA
held its 16th Convention. The
differences between the various
leaders in the CPUSA were set-
tied. One faction led by John
'Gates was dissatisfied with party
ideology and policies. The main
grievance was the intervention
of Russian troops in Ithe Hungar-
ian 'Revolt. This group wanted
complete autonomy from Mos-
cow. William Z. Foster, who had
been the Communist Party lead-
er since 1945, and his followers
followed the Moscow line and di-
rectives, regardless of who was
in power. Eugene Dennis finally,
joined Foster's faction and at the
convention they defeated Gates.
The CPUSA was still controlled
by Foster under'the guidance of
the Communist International. A
new Constitution was adopted.
The CPUSA was again on solid
,ground. The-new constitution
earnestly started the Communist
Party on the road which we, in
the United States see the results
daily, Article VI, Section 7, of.
the constitution reads:
"It shall be the obligation of
all Party members to struggle
against all forms of national op-
pression, national chauvinism,
discrimination and segregation
against all ideological influences
and practices of 'racial theories'
such' as. white chauvinism and
anti-Semitism. It shall be the
duty of -alli Party members to
fight for full social, political and
economic equality of the Negro
people and promote the unity of
the Negro people and white peo-
ple as essential for the advance-
ment of their common interests."
Was this a sincere belief'on
the, part of the Communists, or.
were they merely going to put
into effect a policy whereby they
could cause unrest and insurrec-
tion? The Communists used Ne-
groes 'as dupes in the past, and
now they intended to again at-
tempt to 'put a theory into rea-
lization. To fully understand the
part played by the Negro in the
Communist scheme we must stu-
dy it frQom its beginning. Thru-

uncle or two and a grandfather, lives the life of a king. I didn't
think grandson had to whimper once during the entire week.
A word of wisdom for the New Year-Benjarnin Franklin once
said, "It is not always easy to say the right thing at the right time
but it is far more difficult to leave unsaid the wrong thing at a
Walking up and down Reid Avenue Thursday morning, we
observed that some merchants were counting what was left froni
the year of business, getting ready for the income/ tax filing A
time. Others were busily faking down the Christmas decorations
and putting them away for another year., Nothing looks so good'-
as Christmas decorations put in place, and nothing looks quite so
"let down" as Christmas decorations being taken down.
Merchants, as a whole, reported a very good holiday busi-
ness here in Port St. Joe. We like that. Nothing builds a town
into a community that can serve the needs of its' people quite
so fast as people doing their buying in their home town. Those
who claim, "you- can't find anything in 'downtown, stores" are
only aggravating the situation by going out of town for their pur-
chases before they try to make them locally.
A second reason for' taking stock" of what is left on the
shelf is to see what didn't move so well during the year and cur-
tail the buying of that item next year. Ah obvious step. 1 Tak.
ing a slow mover'"out of circulation makes it more difficult to
find what you want in a small town, but a merchant can't con-
tinue to stock what he does not have a demand for.
So don't blame the merchant if you can't find it in Port St.
Joe. Blame yourself for not demanding that it be available in
Port St. Joe by asking for it.
The Antigo,k Wisconsin "Journal" recently stated, "When has
the average youth been given so many years to learn and inquire,
so much leisure to explore and experience, so many opportunities
to realize his full potential? When have the young ever spoken
witl~ such authority and been listened to with such respect? Full
of faults America is-but When have the young ever had more
chance, and more hope, of doing something about correcting them?
Perhaps the prospect is too much for them. Perhaps the fault,lies
not with the"'system' but with themselves. Perhaps they are
simply still too young." Y

GIGANTIC STOREWIDE CLEARANCE!
HAPPY 'NEW YEAR TO ALL!
"What Happened to. The Tattler?" The writer has had this
query from some old (and young) local readers as well as those
receiving The Star in several states. For some reason they were
kind enough to ,read our Tattle a number of years ago .. when
we worked more and fished less! Well, my good friends, we'll not
bore you with a detailed answer (it could be 'a lengthy epistle).
It's just a case of being absorbed in theirr things; fishing prominently
included. A lot of time and effort can be used to locate and out-
wit a fish. In fact it seems to be getting even more difficult of
late. So thought we'd just take a breathing spell and think
about the coming New Year,'giving The Tattler a chance to breathe
A compact review of 1968 in our limited thought area reveals'-
the fact the year :has been exciting, interesting and kind to us in
many ways, How and why? Well, we'll try to spot below a few of
the most significant reasons we say this year has been a great one:
1. Reasonably good health, a good home 'on beautiful St. Jo-i
seph's Bay, loved ones, friends and patrons.
2. The happy privilege of rendering service to the folks in!
Port St. Joe and surrounding area. We are able to say with depth;
of feeling: You are the best folks in the wide world to us! You've
really been swell!!! I
3. Ability to bear the heartaches and disappointments along
with the year's benefits s and pleasures. These are hazardous, trout
bled and 'tragic times. We consider ourselves most fortunate to
have come through with reasonable safety and security.
4. Day by day -the pleasant greetings and warm smiles of our
friends' and acquaintances serve to strengthen and reinforce our
hope and faith in that side of humanity which is good and true.
You may conclude the foregoing is limited 'in scope of realities
and long on emotions. However, my friends, the simple thoughts
from Number One through Number Four represent to us vital parts
of what life is all about. Some may say that living, working and
doing business these days is cold, cruel and heartless. This may
be true in some instances, but we cling to the belief that far greater
and more lasting impacts of/life are .made by friendly, honest,
sincere.folks in all walks of life. They go about distributing these
qualities and simple modesty, and with due regard for all members
of humanity. A closing thought for this paragraph could be: Will
we bq among those counted in this group in 1969? Sufficient num-
bers could lessen the woes of this turbulent, warring world.
We are contemplating the making of one New Year's Resolu-
tion, namely: "We resolve to observe more caution in the matter
of making promises and more diligence in fulfilling all promises
made." It occurs to me that a sad book could be written on the
subject of "Broken Promises", small, medium and large. We would
prefer to write about the cheerful side, "Promises Fulfilled".
Again "Happy New Year To All". May your blessings be abun-
dant. S'long. -RGB.
P.S.-Warm New Year Greetings from the Sunshine State to
our friends (receiving The Star) in North Carolina and Virginia,
California, et cetera, et cetera. Suggest you retire in Florida.

This Is Christmas
Port St. Joe's Jaycees found out what; Christmas is all about
on Saturday before Christmas when they presented small boys and
girls with presents of toys they might not otherwise have received
at Christmas time. The Jaycees presented toys to 32 young boys
and girls such as this boy, and the look of expectation repaid the
Jaycees for their trouble. -Star photo
This little girl had a very serious talk with Santa Claus at the
Jaycee Christmas 'party for underpriviledged children. Not be-
lieve in Santa Clpus? You had just as well not believe in automo-
biles after seeing the expression on this little lady's face.

Each year the drug industry Invests millions of dollars In
research'to support the 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.
facturing improve, the price of the bulk drug decreases
This saving is passed on to you in lower prescription prices,

the life and times of the colonial

TEN EARLY SYMPTOMS OF JUVENILE
by PAUL HARVEY
Reprinted from Jaycee's "Future" Magazine
In Wheeling, West Virginia, there was a club for teen-age boys called
the Pigeon.Killing Club. -Membership required that a boy put his hand
over the barrel of a BB gun and take a solemn vow to kill pigeons--and
never to show mercy to a wounded one.
Parents found out about the club after one of, the young boys was
found with his skull split from front to back and his throat slashed with
Sa knife. The two charged with the murder were ring-leaders of the
Pigeon Killing, Club, each 14 years old. Now the parents are asking them-
selves what went wrong. Now they ask.
I have thought for a long time that if parents knew how to recognize
the early danger signs, it might help.
I consulted with many people: sought the best judgment of experts.
Aided by jurists, welfare workers, prison wardens; we enumerated, dis-
tilled, and then spelled out the 10 signs that most generally point to trou-
ble. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was the final authority. He- approved
the "10 symptoms" without change. -
Here, then, are the 10 danger signs.to watch- for in the teen-age youth
BEFORE they lead to big trouble.
2. Evidences of alcohol or drugs on the breath, needle marks on arms
3. Cruelty to animals
4. Sloppy appearance or dress that exaggerates sex. In boys,
uncut hair. In girls, skin-tight jeans '
5. Unexplained cuts, scratches, bruises -
6. Unexplained late hours
7. Appearance of strange articles that -ere riot purchased
8. Possession of unnecessary wVeapons *
9. Flagrant disobedience .-
10. Friends he never brings home .. ... -
Ten symptoms. If you recognize one in. your. child, look into it. If
you recognize two, look out!
.It is difficult for a loving parent to believe ill of his, or her; offspring.
Some pof the:symptoms :may, therefore, shock some "good families" which
had merely considered the. boy "high-spirited". /
There's another symptom for 'parents to, understand.
Mrs. William Schlenger, president of the Grammar School PTA in
Long Branch, N. J., conducted a survey. She telephoned numbers at ran-
dom from the Long Branch directory intending to ask parents: "Do you
know where your child is right now?"
In 64 percent of the cases, a. child answered and said he didn't know
where his parents were!
So, it is up to the parents. Even where they may not have to answer
to the law, they will answer to some higher court the 4ay they suffer the
anguish of a parent whose son or daughter is in trouble. Sooner or
later the responsibility will come honia.
