FSU Archaeological Team Hopes to
Find Trench Graves of Old St. Joe
The Port St. Joe City Commission gave
its permission Tuesday night for a team
from. Florida State University to unearth
old. graves near the old St. Joseph Ceme-
tery.. (raves to be unearthed are unmarked
graves to the East and South of the old
cemetery, outside the area which is now,
fened in as a.historic shrine.
team composed of Dr. Hale G. Smith,
profesor of Archeology and Anthropology
at "BU; Dr. R. C. Daleyj professor of
Medical Anthropology and James Felton,
a graduate student from Key West ap-
pearel before members of the City Com-
missign and the St. Joseph Historical So-
ciety^i last Saturday afternoon and asked
for'permission to make the excavation'.
The City Commission members asked
that .they be given until Tuesday to make
their decision and decided in favor of the,
request, provided the excavation team will'
give the City a release from any damages
that may occur from the expedition. .
Dr. Daley explained that the excava-
tion will be made in the interest 'f medi-
cal science. It is strongly suspected that
there are trenches of mass graves in the
old cemetery vicinity dating: back to 1838
when a yellow fever epidemic swept young
St. Joseph. Daley said that his department
wishes to exhume and study these bones
to determine what diseases humans suf-
fered from during this time and compare
the ratio with diseases suffered today.
Dr. Smith stated that the University
would bear all costs of the digging -and
that such an undertaking would cost the
City or aiy other group up to $100,000 if-
they were to attempt such a project on
their own.. The team will' use students from.
FSU and volunteers to do their digging
and searching. Smith assurreda everyone

This week is the week when the Jaycees honor some young
man of our city by. presenting him with their annual Distinguished
Service Award coveted by all men between the ages of 21 and
35. The week of the award also marks national "Jaycee Week".
The national week has not met with much significance among the
Jaycees of Port St. Joe as yet. Whether it is modesty or not enough
- time to spend "tooting their own horn", we don't know, but' the week
isn't a "big thing" with our Jaycees. .
We think that our Jaycees deserve recognition dfiring this week
for the fine job they do in our community throughout the whole
year. The Jaycees are more evident at Christmas time, what with
their Christmas parade, their food baskets for the poor and their
activities of bringing Christmas to"the underprivileged children of
the county. But the Jaycees aren't active only at Christmas. They
stay on the ball allyear long.
During this week, the week of selecting a young mani'for the
'aycee award, we think it fitting that we give a Jaycee a good word
and let them know we appreciate their efforts. One of the best ways
we can do this is to cast a vote for the young man we think most
deserving of the Distinguished Service' Award.
We notice that the redbuds along Monument Avenue are be-
gihing to assume that' Smokeyy" look, which my Garden Club
wife tells me is a sign that they are getting ready to bloom.
The area's horticultural conscience, Malcolm Johnson, editor
of the Tallahassee "Democrat". says the same thing is getting
ready to happen in Tallahassee, and, "it's too soon", he says.
We can go to the moon, but we' can't tell a redbud, when or
when not -to bloom.

According to Drew Pearson, the Quakers, President Nixon's
religious group, are getting worried over Nixon's attitude stated
in his inaugural address on Monday that "We'll be as strong as we
must, as long as we must". Pearson thinks that the Quakers, long
heralded as Pacifists are discouraged at Nixon's attitude.
Pearson's column brought to mind a joke we once heard Paul
Harvey tell about the Quaker and his cow. The old 'Quaker had
a cow that would kick over the milk bucket every morning just
about the time the Quaker would milk it full. Morning after morn-
i ing this happened until finally the old Quaker stood tip, looked the
cow in the eye, put his hands on his hips and said: "Cow, thou
knowest I, won't harm, thee, even though thou kickest over the milk

to a Baptist who will kick hell out of thee?" -

This is written while traveling (Miami bound)., Mrs.

Writer takes a brief turn now and then.
Our Florida is truly a fabulous and picturesque state'
in this great land of luxury, stretching from the turbu-
lent Atlantic to the peaceful Pacific. yes, a land of milk
and honey. Giants, too! Giant intellect and genius oper-
ating in all areas of life. Humans endowed with almost
unbelievable creative abilities of all kinds and qualities,
constantly producing more and more material things to
make living better and better for human beings (certain
Never in the history of mankind has there been so
much to buy. Naturally we'll mention things to wear firsE
(There's the source of our bread and .butter). Our lim-
ited vocabulary fails to find proper words to describe.
.We'll settle for stylish, stunning, i fabulous, oh and ah in-
spiring, super sports, etc., to add to the looks, health and
comfort of people everywhere.
And ... things to use, things to eat, fill factories,
warehouses, stores, trucks, trains, planes and ships, not
mentioning books, catalogues, etc. The list is far too
lengthy to do justice here. All this is now taking place
before our eyes, designed to make living happier, heal-
thier and. more luxurious (all of it we hope). We are
tempted to call these times, "the romance in living" period,
as well as the space age.
Now, my friends, most iof the foregoing has been said
to ask 'a closing .question that follows: Have all these
things made us happier, more grateful and appreciative,
humbled and more considerate in our ,human relation-
ship,? It's rather doubtful, do you think?
It's sad to look at a suffering, warring and unhappy'
world, torn apart by selfishness, greed and hatred. ..We
guess no amount of things material, wisdom, fame or pow-
er of humans will cure this fatal malady. The world is
literally dying for the simple lack of love and understand-
ing. Appears we have barely tapped the source of sup-
ply, the one hope and answer for all the ills of mankind-
our Creator, the Great Physician, the'Light of the World.
P.S.-Talking to myself: "Aw clieer up, why ramble
so seriously?'' Lighter stuff next week, maybe!
