Daily, professor' of medical, ar-'
chaeology, both of FSU,' hope
to find out what man was 'like
in ,the ted .States 100 year
ago, by digging up mna-ked
graves at the old St:' Joseph
Cemetery here in Port St. Joe.
In a progress report of the ex-
cavations, which began two
weeks ago. Dr. Smith told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday that some
graves had been located, but not
much (vas left of the skeletons
in the graves. Smith said that wa-
ter action on the .graves had all
but destroyed all skeletal parts.
Smith said that.'two single
graves had been located, and
one grave which contained five
remains. He said that not much
had' been retrieved that the stu-
dents and professors could use
Dr. Smith said that the digging
is being conducted to locate the
remaining bones of the dead of
old St. Joseph from- 100 years
ago. From the study of the
bones, Dr. Smith said his people
can ascertain the age, sex, race,
and other information, concern-
ing the people who lived in this
area during those times. The
bones will also tell the experts
of the types disease suffered by
the-people of old St. Joseph and
some of the medical practice and
techniques used by doctors of
Smith said that virtually noth-
ing is known of the people of
the United States 100 years ago.
The only evidences recovered so
far are from two excavations, one
at Ft. St. Marks and another in
"This is something that has
never been done before", Dr.
Smith said. "We don't even
know how tall people were 100
years ago, and we. hope this ex-
vacation will give us some clues
as to the extent of evolution of
man over this period of time."
One reason the abandoned site
of old St. Joseph was chosen for,
the excavation study is because
it is expected that people were
buried in mass graves here Adur-
ing that time due to .a raging,
epidemic of yellow. fever that
swept the City in 1841. Many
people died then and Dr. Smith,
reasons that the haste to bury
the many dead may have result-
ed in mass graves. "Coffins were
hard to come by in 1841", said.

with burial in Jehu Cemetery.
Bateman, age 57, had been a

years and an employee of St. Joe
Paper Company since 1938.' He
was a member of the Wewahitch-
ka Baptist Church and was past
machines last year, but', the
Board decided to purchase only
12 for selected precincts 'and try
out the new voting procedure.
In Tuesday night's meeting, the
Board agreed to purchase three
more machines, but have not des-
ignated which precincts will get
the machines. The largest pre-
cincts using paper ballots were
White City, Highland View and
the Beaches. Both Wewahitchka
and all four Port St. Joe pre-
cincts had two machines each.
The new machines were pur-
chased on a 10-year lease-pur-
chase agreement from the Auto-
matic Voting Machine Company
at a price of $2,019.00. The new
machines will be identical to the
ones the county now has,, and
the cost was the same.
Since it was brought out in the
last meeting of the Board, ear-
lier this month, that improper
maintenance was causing most
of the few problems at the new
County Courthouse. Since this
appears to be the case, the'Board
suggested to the maintenance
force that some type of period-
ic inspection and preventive
maintenance be set up, especially
for mechanical equipment.
In this area, the Sheriff's De-
partment asked for permission to
install a concrete parking apron
to the East of the Jail building.
The Department also asked for
permission to cut a hole in the
wall of the jail kitchen to in-

I took a little trip to Pensacola Thursday afternoon with Tom
Coldewey, to see Buck Griffin at the Pensacola Baptist Hospital.
We timed it just right, because about 10, minutes after we arrived
Buck was wheeled out of Intensive Care, where he had spent the
past 10 days and put in Room 252. -
Buck's happy now because he's out from among those "sick
folks" and out where he can receive visitors. (Buck's visitors
were seriously curtailed while he was in Intensive Care for his
own good as well as for the seriously ill about him). He feels fine.
He's in good spirits and he wants his friends to come see him.'
, Buck says all he needs now is to get, something decent to wear.
He's in one of those skimpy hospital gowns which he describes as,
"not big enough for Rogers, and not long enough for Jimmy Graves".
To remedy this attempt to wean him to mini-skirts, Buck tried to
keep his shorts, but somehow they got lost on his way to surgery
and he hasn't been able to find them.since. That's why he keeps
the sheet pulled up high.
Summer has made the scene before it made the calendar, didn't

by the response I get on my rounds of the merchants of Port St.
Joe, looking for an Inch or two of advertising. This week, every-
time I would walk in a business that sold air conditioners, I got the

if you don't need an air conditioner now, it isn't likely that you
will in the future. -

I see where 'the Washington County News up in Chipley has
a new owner a man by the name of Arthur Halliburton. Halli-
burton was formerly with the Pensacola News-Journal, according to
the announcement of his ownership in the piper.
The Washington County News has been ailing for several years
now. Most of its ills, in my opinion, came from the fact that it has
had owners who knew nothing about the back shop operation-a
fatal lack of knowledge in the weekly newspaper business. One
can squeak by knowing nothing of how to write or how to properly
report a story (1 am a prime example of that); but he cannot get
.by without a working knowledge of printing.
I What I started out to say was: Halliburton has started on a
crusade one that will probably not prove too popular with the
people through this section of the state. He has set out to shut,
down the paper mills in this area because he doesn't like the smell.
Isn't that too bad'? / '
Halliburton needs to know that when he shuts down the paper
mills in Northwest Florida, he cuts off at least half of the revenue
to the area which is engendered from non-military activities. Such a
drastic move merely to satisfy a twinging probiscus would also cut
off the purchase of pulpwood from Washington County, which would
be a serious blow to the economy of Washington County. As a mat-
ter of fact, such an action could very well affect business to such an
extent in that county that Halliburton, himself, may become the
-last owner" of the Washington County News, rather than the
"present owner", since I believe business would deteriorate to the

When I came to Florida in
1914 I became identified with
the citrus industry as a member
of the staff of the Florida
Grower, house organ of the
Florida Citrus Exchange, edited
by my uncle, Edgar A. Wright,
who had previously edited the

My knowledge of citrus was
.limited to experience on the
Sfaly 10-acre grove located in
South Pasadena. I recall I used
to. obtain spending money by
selling oranges door to door at
five cents a dozen.
Florida at that time was just
beginning to get citrus fruit out
of barrels and into crates. Mar-
keting of fresh fruit was a pro-
blem. There were no citrus can-

Southern officials and their in-

established that the holiday weekend is not more dangerous
than any other weekend, but that caution and common
sense are the est insurance for safety on the highways."
Once again, the AAA will operate its Holiday News
'Service from Holiday Headquarters in Orlando during the
July Fourth weekend.
Hour after hour, throughout the long weekend, the AAA
will issue. bulletins giving latest information on campsites
available at the State Parks, accommodations available irt
resort areas, road and traffic conditions, and special reports
'on holiday activities. The bulletins will be broadcast over
more than 150 radio stations throughout Florida and will be
issued td the wire services and newspapers.
The State Board of Parks and Historic Memorials is
,geared for an avalanche of visitors during the holiday.
Superintendents of each park will be in touch with the AWAA
to provide information.
Winding up each bulletin' will be a safety suggestion
designed to help motorists tb "Bring 'Em Back Alive!" '
