met Friday evening of last week
to iron out details of who's go-

The School Board had expres-
sed, earlier, a willingness to help
financially with the road work

Department has pledged that
State agency to put' down the
road surface if the county will
prepare the road bed to state
In the meeting last Friday, the
School Board said it had $60,000
that it could put in the project.
The money had been set aside for
paving parking -areas at the new
Port St. Joe school. The Board
said that in furnishing the- mon-
ey for oal wm'rk, the project
would have to be expanded to
include paying odf the parking

said that the school physical ed-

present only team games in'the
past' because of lack- of tools
,and personnel to present themin-
dividial, avenues of body devel-.
. One of the:newest games being
offered in the department is the
game of golf. Also offered are
archery, tumbling and, tennis.
Only the rudiments of golf are
- taught, trying to stimulate an
: interest in and some knowledge
of golf for the older 'boys who
'will be leaving school and will
not then be able to participate
in team games. The program
utilizes the baseball field to'
teach driving and putting and
the use of the various clubs used
:'in the game of golf. Dickson
said that instruction will advance
even farther when the City's
nine hole putt and chip course in
Forest Park is again ready for
play. Grass has just been plant-
ed on the greens of this course
and it will not be usable until
about June 1.

The Gulf County School Board is getting ready to. send out
what will probably be the last Freedom of Choice forms to be sent
out in the county. During the next school year, the schools will
be integrated into a new, modern building. There will be no choice
to make, except that of whether or not to ATTEND school.
The Negro community of the Port St. Joe area is beginning to
realize that they will not' be happy with this situation. We can't
blame them. Much of their social life has been built around their
school and its programs and activities. It has been natural for all
races and nationalities in the world to stick with their own kind-
witness "China towns", Irish communities, Jewish burroughs, etc.,
etc. People tend to fraternize with their' own kin4. It's not be-
cause of a dislike, a distrust or a' lack of appreciation for the other
groups., It's a matter of choice. '
The matter of choice is being removed and the Negroes are
inot too happy about it. In this, the Negroes have the sympathies
of the whites, also; but there's not a thing we can do about it. There
is no such thing as freedom of choice. There is only, "do what is
best for the most concerned". This is the way we have to operate
in this crowded world. This desire to do as one wants, is what
prompted Daniell Boone, Davey Crockett aid Wild Bill Hickock
to drift farther and farther West where they could do what
they wanted without man's rules to' hamper them. .
It has fallen the lot of our generation to be one of the first
where there is no "West" left. We must now lively with1 one an-
'other and subordinate our "druthers" with our growing need for
responsibilities toward our fellow man.
We're not going to like it .white and Negro alike. We had I
rather stick to ourselves. This is the way of nature. But too many
people, and the need for more and more services brings on social
and economic forces which must be dealt with in this drastic way.
After lopping' $4 billion off the current budget, President
Nixon has promised a surplus of $5.8 billion for next year. The
law-makers can raise taxes all they want tack on sur tax,
raise interest rates, raise the discount rate makeit impossible
for the average man to borrow money and it'will not help our econ-',
omy. Determination ton meet our obligation as a nation and live
within our means will add cents to the dollars rather than our
past attempts at adding cents through lack of sense programs. ,
ilt hardly seems possible that if any of us/were in a position
where we couldn't pay our debts, that our credit standing and
credit' availability would improve merely by declaring 'that we are
T financially stable .... and borrowing- more money to6 prove it.
We must begin to pay our past bills .. then watch our credit
stock shoot up! We're no economist, but anyone who has ever
suffered the "shorts" and been dunned for a bill knows perfectly
well what we are talking about.
The deed is done we, have rendered unto Caesar the things
which Caesar claims. Now if the check just doesn't bounce. ,
It was interesting to read of the march of the, "poor people"
on the opening day of the Legislature in Tallahassee last week. T
The so-called poor were lobbying for more hand-outs and bigger
doles from you and I for doing nothing,
The really poor who cannot help themselves, I do not mind
helping. But most of the onps we saw in news pictures were per-
fectly able and fit to work. lWhen we think of the pulpwood that "
needs cutting for our paper mill and probably every other mill in
this area '. it galls us to have the so-called "poor" say "there's no
way for us but welfare!"
It seems that this condition is by choice rather than by necessity.

per year. Not only many tons of
product pour fourth from the facli-
ty, but dollars are also pumped
into, the community. The 10 acre
plant's .50 employees account for
a payroll of considerably more than
a quarter million dollars per year.
Glidden Durkee invested a
half-million dollars in moderniza-
tion to its Tall Oil Plant last year,
primarily to bring about product
quality improvement. This new
equipment is completed and just
how being brought into stream
with the "existing" equipment.
Glidden Durkee officials state
that competition is strong in the
Tall OiL Chemicals Field, and con-
Ssant product improvement is one
way to stay up with competition.
In Panama City, Arizona Chem-
ical Company is also a large pro-
4ucer of Tall Oil chemicals. Iait
year, more than 100,000 tons of
Tall Oil Chemicals were produced
in West Florida, anid sold to in-
dustries throughout the U.S.A. and
in numerous foreign countries. A's
a growing Florida industry very
large in this area, it is interesting
to know more about these pro-
ducts made from the Pine Tree.

Most new cars look like other cars. But when the
word gets out that something really different Is on
the way, rumors run wild. Few cars have caused
So much talk as Maverick. Ford's new entry In the
small car field rivals the economy Imports In price
/ ... but tops them In power, performance, passen-
ger room arid luggage capacity. We've been boma
barded with questions about Maverick. Now, for
the first time, here are the answers.
Q. Whydid you build the Maverick?T
A. We think of Maverick as another on'e of Ford Motor
Company's answers to the gold drain. Now Amerl-
cans who want small car economy don't have to'
send their UlS.;idoilars overseas. ,
'0. Why did you call It Maverick?
A. You know what a maverick Is. A maverick breaks the
rules. A maverick is different. Maverick plugs the big
gap' between, the compacts and the Imports. It has a
wheelbase eight, Inches shorter than a '69 Falcon,
"eight and one-half inches longer than a VW .1500.
Nothing else like It I-
0. Why did you make it this size? (
A. Maverick pinches perniles, not people. We gave
Maverick more leg room. More shoulder room. More
luggage room. Good example: the frontfseat of a
Maverick offers you nine inches more shoulder room
than the front seat of the leading economy import'
and its trunk can handle all the luggage for a family
of four, including a set of golf clubs.
0. What do I get for the.price?
A. You get your mohey's worth. A complete, built-for-
/ Americans kind of'car. Room. Hot styling. Color-
keyed interiors. Even the healer is Included. Some
economy car interiors are about as luxurious as a
park bench. Not Maverick's You get plush seats.
Cloth and vlrinl upholstery wilh unique tanan plaid
cloth inserts. Youalso get safely features like smart
pull-out door handles. Strong safety door locks.Two-
speed electric wipers. Safety belts; Head restraints.:
Plus conveniences like armrests, coat hooks, lighted
heater controls... important little things that add so
much to your driving comfort.
Q. What about options?
A. You can get 'em if you want 'em. 'You can order into
gral air conditioning. "(It's built In, not hung on.)
Other options include 3-speed automatic or Idw-cost
semiautomatic transmission, and a hefty200 CID Sibx
But lots of people won't put an extra cent into this
't have to read it ail-but ith nice to know i
car. Because it's all there. A complete car all ready
to drive home.
Q. What kind of gas mileage can Iget?
, A. That depends on you as well as the car. You can get
,as much as 25 or 26 miles per gallon-if you have an,
educated toe and the right road conditions. If you6
have a lead Ioot, or do a lot of city driving, you will
get a lot less. In tests by professional drivers at our
tracks, where we do our best to duplicate actual
driving conditions, Maverick averaged 22.5 mpg.
0. What kind of power does Maverick have?
A. Maverick's Six leis loose 105 galloping horses."
That's 52 more than you get in the 4-cylinder VW
1500. Maverick can cover 417 feet In ten seconds
from a standing start. That means you can get up to.
highway speed In a hurry. When you enter a 70 mph
turnpike, you won't feel like a retired bookkeeper,
thrust into the middle of a pro football game.
Q. If It has an eight Inch longer wheelbase than the
leading import, does it still handle and park easily?
A. Maverick can U-turn in a tighter circle (35.6 feet)
than the leading economy import (36.0 feet). Mav-
erick can slant through traffic like a halfback. It can
turn on a dime and give you nine cents ch6rige. If.
you've been driving any other American car,'you'll
find Maverick's neal size adds up to 51'a feet to any
Q. Can Detroit really build a small economy car that's
tough and long lasting?
A. It's not easy, but we did it. Maverick's unilized body
construction makes it light, strong and durable. It's
welded like a battleship. Rustprooflng compound
goes,into deep crevices that never see the light of
day. Then all that strength'is covered with four coats
of paint for lasting beauty. Result: one tough little
car that's put together to stay together. (The service
schedule-in the Maverick owner's 'manual goes up to
108,000 miles or nine years; that ought to tell you
something about its rugged durability.)
O. How aboutparts and service?
A. Maverick is designed to be 'unusually easy to ser-
vice. You're dealing with made-in-America parts and
6,000. easy-to-find Ford Dealers. Fast repairs and
easy replacements mean extra savings in both time
Q. Is Maverick really easier and less expensive to
maintain than an economy Import?
A. Definitely. Maverick oil changes come only every.
6,000 miles and chassis lubrication once every

$32.00; dealer preparation charge, if any; transportation charges, state and local taxes.
fs all there. L
36,000 miles. The leading, economy ,import, recom-
Smends oil changes every 3,000 miles (twice as often-
as Maverick) and chassis lubrication every 6,000
miles (six times as ohen as Maverick!). Those are
Just a few examples of the many ways.Maverick
lessens Inconvenience -and lowers operating cosL
Q. Can I do my own maintenance work?
A. Yes, if you have an average amount of mechanical.
ability. The Maverick owner's manual contains 24
pages of detailed diagrams and easy-to-follow In-
structions for routine maintenance jobs you can do
yourself, if you wish. You'll find it easy to change,
spark plugs, replace ignition points .. plus many
other do-It-yourself repairs and replacements.
0. Can a small car be safe? And how safe Is safte
A. This small car Incorporates the latest advances In
engineering. Maverick's brakes are as big as a stan-
-dard compact'd-designed to stop cars weighing
hundreds of pounds more. Maverick gives you'
weight .. power .. stability. Designed for Ameri-
can driving conditions.
0. How does Maverick ride?
A. Here's where Maverick's longer, wider stance really
pays off., You get a smoother, quieter ride. May-
erick's., tight, strong, unitized body helps eliminate
squeaks and rattles. Special insulation blocks out
road noise. The people who brought you a Ford that
was quieter than a Rolls-Royce now bring you a
small car that doesn't sound like a power mower.
Q.Js there an advantage In the fact that Maverick Is
really a 1970 car?
A. Slower depreciation is one money-in-the-pocket ad-
vantage. Maverick's 1970 model designation,means
.t keeps its trade-in value higher, longer. (Maverick
Is built to be a good investment from the minute you
Sbuy it to the minute you sell it.)
Better come take a 'look' at this one. You'll, find It
where the action Is... right in there with, other great
Ford values like specially equipped Ford Galaxie
500's ... Fairlanes ... Mustangs and Falcons.
You'll find them at'your Ford Dealer's ... the place
you've got to go to see what's going on.'

with the process. This was done so
as not to confuse this material
with the "Pine Oil" that Americans
are familiar with, which is of a dif-
ferent chemical composition.
Crude Tall Oil is obtained when
pine wood is processed into pulp,
for production of kraft paper (used
in bags and cardboard boxes), The
pine wood is reduced to chips,
cooked in a solution to reduce it
to pulp, and the pulp is then wash-
ed and finally put through the
gaint machines that make the
paper. (See chart). A total of nine
mills in the state of Florida pro-
duce more than 3 million tons of
paper and cellulose per year, mak:.
ing this state the nation's 3rd lar-
gest' wood pulp processor. Inter-
national Paper Company's Plant in
Panama City was the first mill
erected in Florida, starting Flor-
ida's forest-use-evolution from lum-
ber over to pulp wood a s 'iggist
in this forest-usagefield. All of
-these pulp mills use primarily pine
wood, and all yield this byproduct
known as Crude Tall OIL -
When Glidden -- Durkee built
its plant. in Port St. Joe, all of its
raw materials came from St. Joe
Paper Company's mill across high..
way 98. The Port St. Joe Tall' Oil
Plant has greatly increased its r,
ductiob, rate in 16 years, however
today, about 55% of Glidden',
Crude Tal Oil is purchased from
St. Joe Paper Company, and the
other 45% purchased from other
pulp mills outside of Gulf County.'
(PRODUCTS and PRODUCTION).
Crude Tall Oil contains the chem-
icals which are separated or "re-
fined", to yield the products called
Tall Oil derivatives. 3 primary in-
gredients are covered, called (a)
Tall Oil Rosin (b) Tall Oil Fatty
Acids, and (c) Distilled Tall Oils.
Tall Oil Rosins compete with gum
and wood rosins. Tall Oil Fatty
Acids are similar to vegetable oils,
and compete with materials such
as Soya ,Bean Oil. Distilled -Tall
Oils are light colored oils contain-
ing much\reduced proportions of

portions called Tall Oil Pitch, and
Heads. These Tall Oil derivatives
have more than 100 industrial ap-
plications, from adhesives to caulk-
ing compounds ti linoleum to
Spliting of the crude inot deri-
vatives is done with giant towers
called Fractional Distillation Col-
umns. These towers in the Port St.
Joe plant are run from a central
control room. An interesting re-
cent addition to the, Glidden -
Durkee Plant's Control Room is a
special computer panel. Flowrate,
temperature, pressure and other
readings throughout the plant are
recorded and controlled on panels
'in'the central -control room. The
computer panel also receives these
pneumatic signals, and converts
them to electronic' impulses. The
signals in the electronic forms are
then flashed to a computer. The
computer accepts Tall Oil plant
signals and stores the information
in a memory bank. Once each hour,
the computer assimilates all the
data collected for that hour, analiz-
es the. tall oil plant production
and sends a typewritten,message
to Port St. Joe plant operators.
These messages assist tihe oper-
-ators in maintaining peak efficien-
cy in the plant operation.
Dispite the computer's valuable
-assistance, 'it still takes skilled
people to run the plant. Most of the
plant's staff has also been at work
there tor better than 10 years. This
includes a small office 'staff, 'a
maintenance crew, several lab peo.
ple, and the production department
which works "Shifts" to keep pro-
duction going 24 hours per day
Glidden-Durkee's Tall Oil plant
provides a dozen products, which
have 100-plis applications, and
shipped these products to almost
every state last year plus 2 dozen
foreign countries. Sales of Tall Oil
chemicals, world wide from
Port St. Joe make this industrial
commodity a major product in this'
area. You'll be hearing much more
about Tall Oif .derivatives from
Gulf County in the coming years,
and when you do, now you'll also
know what these chemicals are.
Many Major Highway Accidents Are
Caused by Minor Traffic Violations
The Florida Highway Patrol,
this week, said that a great many
of the State's~ traffic accidents
are caused by the "not-so-major",
violations often ignored in high-
way safety porgrams.
Colonel H. -N Kirkman, Di.
rector of the Department of Pu-

People impersonating social se-

Social Security manager in Panama

It was learned recently thatobfib

vidual, a white male about 60
years old, likes to pose as a Feder-
al doctor, U. S. Marshall or FBI
He is about 'six feet tall, 175 lbs.,
with a medium build, Gamble con-
tinued. His latest gimmick is to
sell medicine and promise higher
social security checks while pos-
ing as a Federal doctor.
He has dark brown-graying hair,
ruddy complexion and dark eyes.
His only real peculiarity is his
nervous, fast way of talking.
"Anyone who is offered higher
social security .benefits or any
other social security special by
someone meeting the above de-
scription should contact our office,"
The telephone number of the
local social security office is 763-
