Sharks Open Football Season Here
Tomorrow Night Against Wewa
Port St. Joe's Sharks will take
to the gridiron Friday night at
8:00 p.m., with a largely inex-
perienced team to meet the We-
wahitchka Gators in the season's
Coach Wayne Taylor reports
that only eight lettermen (five
of which were starters last year)
are returning from last year's
team which piled up eight wins
against two losses and tied with
Jefferson County for the Gulf.
Coast Conference championship.
The Sharks lost 14 of their
number last year and face near-
ly the same fate this year, with
nine seniors on the squad.
"We had one of the most ex-
perienced teams in Florida last
year, I imagine", Taylor said.
"They had been playing together
since the ninth grade."
' 'The only starters on offense
that are not seniors are junior
halfback Norris Langston, Da-
vid's "baby brother" and center
Mike Wimberly, also a junior.
Rounding out the backfield
Friday night will be Dennis At-
chison at halfback and Billy Glen
Harper at fullback.
Most of the offensive line has
played some, but not much.
Starting on the line will be:
Charles Smith and Buddy Boy-
ette at ends. Adrian Gant and
Jimmy Lancaster at tackle, Lar-
ry McFarland and Richard An-
derson or Phil Early at guard
and Mike Wimberly at center.
Of the team as a whole, Tay-
lor said the team this year will
be larger than last year, aver-
aging nearly 10 pounds more per
man. "The individual members
of this team are stronger than
were those last "year", Taylor

City Commissioner Bob Fox. re-
ported at Tuesday night's Com-
mission meeting that he met last
week with the Air and Water Pol-
lution Control Board in Tallahas-
see and outlined Port St. Joe's
plans for a new. domestic-indus-
try sewage disposal complex here
in Port St. Joe.
Fox said the Board received
the news with interest and stated
they would watch the system as
it is developed for possible appli-
cation in other areas.
Fox's meeting with the State
Board, stating that the City has
started to correct its sewage dis-,
Sposal problems, puts the City
ahead of the State's requirements
for action on the part of the
City toward compliance.
The City will build a giant dis-
posal system to adequately treat
waste from domestic users in the
residential and business areas of
the City as well as the industrial
'gplqnts in the City. Estimates are
that the new plant will cost in
the neighborhood of $2 million
with industry bearing 08% of
Garrison Avenue. The new area
will be platted in 75 foot lots
with paving, and utilities put in
place before building starts.
'Colde&wey requested the City
ConniAsioners to begin thinking
of names that could be given to
the six new streets in the City.
The entire Board received the
news of the subdivision opening
with elation since this section of
the City has very few platted lots
available for building of dwell-H;
ings. ; *'
Along these same lines, Colde-
wey also asked that three new
blo li recently opened along Cy-,'`
press ,Avenue, blocks 124, 128'
and 125 be zoned similar to the
rest of6 Cypress. The street is
zoned for single family dwellings
with specifications set as to the
size house, set-back lines, etc.

tified Tuesday night that two

secondary road program, and the
City was notified to move any
utilities they wished to.
The' two streets to be paved
were Fourth Street from Wood-

items are very near completion.
The Club will call for bids on

Basic Files Plans for Pollution Control
At Local Plant for State's Approval
Air pollution in Port St. Joe
should be significantly reduced
in the near future as a result of
an agreement between Basic Mag-
nesia, Inc., and' the Fldrida De-
partment of Air and Water Pol-
lution Control last last week.
The firm, meeting with Vin-
cent D. Patton, Department Di-
rector, in Tallahassee, agreed to
install an efficient piece of air
pollution control -equipment at
the plant located here.
Operation will depend upon
the time required to design, pur-
chase and install an electrostatic
precipitator, according, to com-
pany officials who have pledged
themselves to move as rapidly as
"We are pleased that the com-
pany has agreed to put such an
efficient kind of air pollution
control device into operation",
said Patton, adding, 'This is one
of the most efficient pollution
control devices available."
The electrostatic precipitator
will allow the company to reduce
its air emission about fifty fold,
bringing the emission well with-

PORT ST. JOE FANS FAITHFUL
All of you "Saturday morning quarterbacks" will
be .satisfied to know that football season begins here in
Port St. Joe as well as across the nation Friday night
with the Sharks meeting the Wewahitchka Gators.
Port St. Joe fans are an odd lot when it comes to the
Sharks. They have supported them in the past, win, lose
or draw. Seldom do you hear mutterings of who was at
fault when the team loses, and everybody is understandably
elated when they win.
Last season was one of those "elated" seasons here
in Port. St. Joe with eight wins against two losses that
could have been wins with just one break.
Not too many Port ,St. Joe fans we have talked to
hope for the fine season that we had last year. They
consider it's just too much of a good thing to have a win-,
ning team two years in a row. But, the good part of it is
-that part we. appreciate and we, are sure the coaches
and team appreciate it that these people will be
right there on the sidelines every Friday night hollering
their lungs out for the purple and white to "move that
In our estimation, this attitude makes Port St; Joe
a real "sport" of a town. No doubt it gives assurance
to the kids on the field, too, to know that the people will
support them as much as they possibly can, whatever
A lure-fire indication of h6w much Port St. Joe sup-
ports its team is the way the reserved season tickets are
* selling. Everywhere you go, you get the same old story,
"I've already bought my reserved seat tickets. I'm going
to be at the game, and I want to be assured of a good
seat when I get there".
"I'm going to be at the game" is a satisfying phrase
to hear. It's taken for granted that the fans will sup-
port the team.
We've been close to plenty of opposing fans (walking*
the opposite sidelines at each game) and i~ our opinion
no team that we play, has the enthusiastic backing that
Port St. Joe's "Sharks" have.
After all this bragging on you, don't you make a
liar out of us. You be at the stadium Friday night to
see the Sharks win their first game of the season.
One Hundred Fifty Years of ROTC
Tradition plays an important part in American life.
The way our country began, the trials of the early cross-
ings, colonization, the Indian wars, the fight for liberty,
the great men whose names will live forever-all give
our country a vast library of tradition.
This year we are celebrating the 150th anniversary
of one of these traditions: military training on the col-
lege campus. It was in 1819 that the "Literary, Scientific
and Military" Academy" was established at what is now
Norwich University in Vermont. Its founder, Alden Part-
ridge, felt schools and colleges should teach non-military
as; well as military subjects, turning out Army officers
who had been educated in a civilian atmosphere.
This 150-year-old tradition has come down to us to-
day as Army ROTC---a program that is in keeping with.
our American concept of citizen soldiers and civilian con-
trol over our.,defense forces. From one school with 100
students, this idea of campus military instruction ,has
.spread to 283 colleges and universities with total Army
ROTC enrollments of more than 150,000 students. More

tenants in the Army this year. Another 16,000 will re-'

Unlike purely military institutions, ROTC provides
a broadening and useful civilian background along with
military education. Each ROTC graduate takes with him
into the service the thoughts and opinions of all those he
has known. He is a man who has learned to motivate
and, lead others. But he has also' learned history, lang-
uages, science and a wide range of academic subjects.
Army ROTC has provided this country with many of
its outstanding leaders, including cabinet members, chiefs
of staff, senators and top business executives. 'Many of
the general officers who hold the key Army commands
in Vietnam are ROTC graduates. The training in leader-

Gulf's Sales Tax
Florida's sales and use tax added
$49.4 million to the state's gen-
eral revenue fund in August, State
Comptroller Fred 0. (Bud) Dick-
inson, Jr., reported this week.
Dickinson noted that the month's
tax receipts topped those of Au-
gust, 1968 by more than $8 million
for a 20.2 per cent increase.
"A heavy volume of collections
in August is a good sign that va-
cationers are staying through the
July season when the sales were
actually made," Dickinson said.
Gasoline taxes also showed a
moderate increase of 9 per cent
above the sum collected last Au-
gust, to add $17.8 million to the
Gulf County, which led the state
in July in percentage of increase
in sales tax collected over the
same month of the previous year
with a whopping 108% increase
backed off some'for the August re-
port. Gulf showed a decrease in
sales taxes collected over the same
last year by 8.4%. Gulf's collec-
tions were $47,505.61 is compared
with $51,860.49 in August, 1968.
- In gasoline tax collections for.
August, Gulf also showed a reduc-
tion over last 'year. The report
shows that Gulf County collected
$26.713 12 in gasoline taxes during
,August of this year and $27,370.35
in the same month last year.

Joe had heard a little jingle which ought to keep everybody ,
straight in the daylight savings time puzzle. The jingle'is, "Spring
forward in Spring and fall back in Fall".
We appreciate Joe taking for granted that we knew Spring
from Fall. There are some who aren't so confident of me.
At times, I'm not, myself.
Nobody seems to want -black militant Robert Williams but
the United States.
Last week Great Britian told the traveling Red that he wasn't
welcome in Britain and should go back to to Africa, Communist
China or Cuba .from whence he had come. Buti Williams didn't
want to-or was afraid to-go back. He wanted to get a TWA
airplane and come/to the United States..
TWA didn't want him either. They figured they had already lost
enough flight time this year ferrying people to Cuba and they didn't
hanker to take a chance on getting another plane diverted if they
could avoid it. Genial Uncle Sam stepped in, however, and ordered
TWA to fly him here to stand trial on a kidnapping charge. TWA
wasn't- anxious to take the chance Uncle Sam was, though, and
sent Williams over here as the lone passenger on one of their air--
liners. Wonder how much that trip cost who?

For best color most annuals must
have a full five-hour sunbath per
day. So, select a sunny plot.
Next comes the vexing problem
of what to plant. Choosing plants
by heights is one approach. Some
taller growing annuals for the back
areas of the garden are delphinium,
larkspur, cleome and hollyhock.
In the center rows and toward
the front you may consider the
medium height plants. Petunias,

examples. For low edging you
might use allyssum, verbena, ph-

famous chef, Louis Diat. Unlike the original version, this recipe
combines, carrots with the potatoes and adds a light flavoring
With the aid of. frozen soups, frozen vegetables and frozen
seasonings such as chives and parsley, it's possible to prepare
