The gain was- made despite

however, to inflation.
The 23.2 percent rise was rela-

some 65 retail outlets in the lo-

The gains chalked up by retail

Fundamental to it all was the
marked increase in real earnings

Oak Grove Residents Enter Strong
Objections to Rink In Neighborhood
Citizens of Oak' Grove turned

meeting of the County Commis-

strong protest to a skating rink
being planned for the Oak Grove
area. The citizens objected to a
."nuisance" being constructed in

that the County has no zoning

what does or what does not gb in-

continuing the investigation of
how Roger Sales, a 40 year old
Nlegro met his death Saturday
night, despite a reversal in the
opinion of the coroner's jury
which rules accideptil death.
Sales was found early Sunday
morning, dead, in an alleyway
in North Port St. Joe. Sales had
a five-inch gash over his right
eye and it was thought at first
this was the cause of death.
The coroner's jury was impan-

Sales was reported to have a
large sum of money on his per-
son Saturday evening, but White
said that investigation has ac-
counted for most of the money.
"The most suspicious thing",
White said, "'is sign of a scuffle
in the alley where Sales body
'was found, "but these could have
/been made before Sales came on
the scene", he said.

LeHardy Pleads Guilty
In Sale to Minors Case
SFrank LeHardy, operator of a
local bar and package store en-
tered a plea of guilty in City
Court Monday afternoon. Le-
Hardy had been charged by City
Police and State beverage agents
with selling alcoholic beverages'
to a minor.
According to Chief H. W. Grif-
fin,' he and beverage 'agents
staked out the bar on Janiiary
17 and 'saw the teen age boy go
in the bar and come out with a
bottle of whiskey.
LeHardy told the court he had
sold to .the boy before and
thought he was 21 years ofLage.
Griffin said that LeHardy will
now go before a hearing by the
State Beverage Department in
Marianna for a hearing. The act
.could result in a fine, loss of li-
cense or temporary loss of 1i- l
cense, according to Griffin.

Cary came to Florida in 1953
from his native West Virginia.
He- was called to the ministry in
1960 and served as youth direc-
tor in the Winter Haven district
for two years.
On August 28, 1962, Cary came ,
to Port. St. Joe to assume his
first pastorate. "The church was
meeting in an old wooden build-
ing, so Cary set out to build a
new church. He worked for 15
months on the building, largely
right by himself, with part time
help from church members when
they could spare the time. At this
point, 'the church secured a loan
and Cary labored on for another
six months to complete the build-
ing, still doing a large portion
of '-the work himself.
Since arriving in Port St. Joe.

talk about what the average citi-
zen can do to prevent crime in
Briefly, Booth said that citi-

GIVE GENEROUSLY WHEN 'MARCHING
MOTHERS' CALL ON YOU TONIGHT
'For a Happier New Year" is the most appropriate phrase the
March of Dimes could have adopted for its annual fund-raising
campaign in January.
Since it began its crusade against crippling birth defects a.
decade ago, the voluntary health agency has meant a happier
'future for countless children. Much of this has been made poss-
ible through the volunteer service of thousands of mothers around
the country, who march together once a year ringing doorbells
and collecting contributions for the treatment, research and
public health education programs supported by the March of
Here in Gulf County, women volunteers will come to our
homes tonight, seeking our help in the war against one of man's
oldest enemies. Many birth defects can be completely overcome '
if treated early enough.
Prevention of these tragedies, as well as treatment and re-
habilitation is a major aim of the March of Dimes. The research
projects financed by this great voluntary health organization
throughout the nation are looking to a future when every new-
born infant will be assured of his right to come into the world
in normal health.
When a Mother's March volunteer rings your doorbell to-
night, do more than answer it give generously to the cause

ing a country club and golf
course will be made in the Sim-
mons Bayou area on land owned
,by George Tapper. Since Tap-
per is spearheading the move, it
seems destined for success.'
Tapper told The Star: this week
that the new country club will
need 300 members, paying initia-
tion fees of $125.00 and $15.00
per month to become a reality.
Only initiation fees will be paid
before the club is constructed.
Tapper explained that the initia-
tion fee will be deposited in es-
crow in the Fforida First' Na-
tional Bank 'and returned if the
'project falls through. I
Plans are to use a 160 acre
tract to construct an 18 hole golf
course, swimming pool, shuffle
board court and a club house.
Some federal funds are available
for the play area of the proposal
but the club house must be fi-
nanced 100% by members.
The original planners and any
others who are interested will
meet Thursday night of next
week when a member of the
Farmer's Home Administration,'.
a government agency will be on
hand to explain the government's:
role in such an undertaking.

are, this is a potentially dangerous situation. i
The City has given Oak Grove a price' for water and

seem high, but is the cost to the City to provide the ser-
vice, plus a nominal percentage for depreciation and re-
pair. Considering the volume involved, it stands to rea-
son that the community of Oak Grove could not operate
its ovn stem, .providing the same quality of water at a
lower price 1h'an that offered by the City. From the prob-

This part of the country is generally referred to as "The -Bible
Belt", and is freely acknowledged by the residents as being the cra-
dle of Bible and New Testament teaching and believing. We don't
expect to encounter any doctrines such as are espoused over other
parts of the nation, that God is dead, or good guys go to heaven, or
it makes no difference what a man believes, so long as he believes
he is doing the right thing.
We just don't ordinarily associate this type of thinking with the
'people of Northwest Florida, South Alabama and Georgia. Generally
we are pretty "hard shelled" in our Bible beliefs. Because of this
fundamentalism, we were mildly shocked when we picked up the
Blountstown "County Record" last week and read the column "Mus-

by past writings to be about college graduate age. George writes

reet lights, I saw half an oil barrel full of
not anti-religion or anything, but I do find some of the state-
ments of belief made by some Christians I know rather hard to
"I believe that a man must find his own God, his own be-
liefs, and pay homage in his own way. o
"Each of us must attempt to discover whatever Gods (capi-
ta l "G" his) there may be for himself.
One of the most spurious statements made by the Christian .,
religion's supporters is the one professing that the mere taking
of Christ into one's life is an assurance of salvation., I think
this ridiculous. It is just a license to sin freely.
'"Then there are those who believe church attendance on
Sunday makes up for all their sins during the week.
"A man who follows the teachings of'Christ is a good man.
If everyone followed his teachings of love for mankind and tol-
eration for those who are different, the world would be an im-
measurably better place, but before Christians can expect other
people to follow these teachings, they are going to have to
"I also flatly do not believe. that' everyone "who does not
believe in God, is going to Hell.
"There have been atheists and pagans who have done this
world much good, and many of these great non-Christians have
been, in their kindness and humility, closer followers of most
of Christ's teachings than a lo of professed Christians.
"I have been tactfully trying to point out that the various
Christian churches, like all of man's institutions and organiza-
tions, have become less than completely honest and sincere.
Man can never be perfect, but I believe he can improve consid-
S erably." .
We don't know if Wallace took his son to task over these "truths"
or not, but the only place I can agree with him is the first half of
his last sentence, "Man can never be perfect". So what is George
going to do with that part of the Bible which says that only perfect
men will go to heaven-. or with that part of the Bible that tells
r about God sending His only begotten Son as a sacrifice to make men
"perfect" for Heaven if they will receive Him?
Making one's own "god" is idolatry. How can a man worship
something so simple as something he can make--and control-him.
We'll go along, also, with George's assertion that "A. man who
follows the teachings of Christ is a good man". In our Bible, Christ
taught, "I am the way4 the truth and the light; no man cometh unto
the Father but by Me". He also taught that there was only one true
God, and man didn't make Him; He made man. The New Testament
teaches about Nichodemus; a good man; a righteous man; but he
refused to accept the teachings of Christ and remained a lost man.
As we said before, George Finlay is about college graduate age.
'He has a good education, judging by some of the words he uses.
But it is quite evident that he has left the reading of one book out
of his study program the Bible.

J A chemicals plant in Port St.
Joe produces thousands of tons
- of Tall Oil products (derivatives
'of the pine tree) for use by in-
dustries world-wide; this plant
has recently perfected some
"beautiful" Tall Oil Rosin (i. e.
highly desirable -market proper-,.

the, sales of their Florida bulk
Thepresult is Miss Sylvayos.
Her banner name comes from
Glidden-Durkee's Tall Oil Rosin
brand name, and we think you'll
agree that she does a fine job
of making the product beautiful.
This picture also shows how "mo-

NVia gum naval stores. Over the
st 'twenty years, however, a
, st' ho-wever _'
new rosin has joined the scene
. Tall Oil Rosin is derived
from a by-product of pulp mills
that use the pine to make kraft
paper and cellulose.
Chemical processors such as
Glidden-Durkee convert these
pulp mill by-products into indus-
trial chemicals. Several Tall Oil
processors in Florida produce in
excess of 100,000 tons of Tall Oil
.chemicals annually in this state.
