"The monkey falls right on our
backs" County Commissioner
Walter Graham told a group of
complaining St. Joe Beach resi-
dents Tuesday night, who had
come to complain about work un-
der way to drain Kenney Lake
in the beach area.
Otto Collinsworth, who lives
beside the lake, acted as spokes-
man for the group in seeking to
get the work stopped, because
they didn't want the lake drain-
ed. Collinsworth said, "We were
not consulted about this project
and I think we should have been
before beginning a project like
this". Collinsworth also objected
to the deep ditch being dug be-

lake saying, "water coming down

of the matter, Graham, who is
the Road Commissioner, said the
Board would have to accept at
least part of the blame. He ex-

Without notifying the County
Board ,of their intentions, the
State this week set out to to-
tally drain the lake. -
As a result of the protest, the
County is now getting with the
State to place an overflow drain
for the lake, leaving the water
level at-its present state.
In other matters concerning
drainage, the state notified the
Board that it would take $10,000
of Gulf's Secondary Road Fund
money to construct an adequate
drain under Niles Road to car-
ry off Geor ge Washington

Thompson said that if the
wires had not been as large as
they were, they would have burn-
ed in two and electrocuted any-
one they touched. "If the boys
had hold of the stick when it
touched the wires they would
have been fried on the spot."
Thompson went on to say, "We
are always running these safety
messages and campaigns about
keeping away from power lines

lieves what those lines will do

Vote FOR Amendment
Florida voters are being asked to go to the polls next
Tuesday and vote on a Constitutional Amendment which
will give the State Department of Education permission
to continue a practice they have been using since 1963 to
finance construction of new facilities on colleges, junior
colleges and vocational-technical schools throughout the
state of Florida. ;-,.'. .
Since 1963, the State Department has financed con-
struction of new buildings by the use of utility taxes levied
throughout the State. This authority expired ;in June of
this year leaving the colleges with no construction money
since the Legislature didn't appropriate any in the last
session. If the Amendment is defeated, money must be
raised through more taxation to build needed college build-
ings. If the amendment is approved, the buildings will con-
tinue to be built with the present method of financing and
no additional faxes will be needed, since the tax source is
already there. If the Amendment is defeated, the utility
tax.receipts will go into the general fund and wind up-hea-
ven only knows where. .. ....... ,
The Legislature failed to provide any funds to build
new university, junior college and vocational education
buildings this year. But it did approve a constitutional
amendment to restore bonding authority for higher edu-
cation construction, ,using the aforementioned utility tax
to pay off the bonds.
This'amendment will be on a special ballot to be voted
on Tuesday. It puts back into the Constitution the author-
ity to use these funds for bonding a provision which was
left out of the revised Constitution that went into effect
This issue is especially vital to Gulf County, which is
sending more and more students each year to neighboring
Gulf Coast Junior College. Gulf Coast can not keep up
with our needs unless this amendment is reinstated to pro-
vide necessary facilities. ,,.'.
~ This particular amendment is of special interest to
Gulf County because Gulf is entertaining the possibility
of joining another county to provide a vocational educa-
tion facility. These funds to be voted on provide vocational
education facilities. ,.. ...
There is no need to list a great, long list of statistics
explaining the need to keep up with the growing popula-
tion of Florida by providing, continually, additional higher
education facilities. There is no need to rehash the now
familiar case of a Legislature that made many mistakes
in the past session, trying to put a new constitution into
effect, re-organizing government and maintaining the ser-
vices and needs of the state which is the second fastest
growing state in the nation.
Failure to provide for this vital need was one of those
mistakes. Now, to correct it, we must go to the polls on
Tuesday and vote in favor of this amendment. It's the'
only thing we can do to preserve our status in higher edu-
cation. It is also one of the few bonding authority quest-
tions you will ever be called upon to approve for which the
funding is already provided and will mean no extra taxes.
e We urge you to vote in favor of the amendment.
Vice President Spiro Agnew has been taking a roast-
ing from almost every direction for his toasting of those
who took part in the recent Moratorium, objecting to the
war in Vietnam.
Agnew stated that those taking part were "impudent
snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals".
While most of the writers we have read (with the
lone exception of Max Lerner, who backed' the Moratorium)
agreed with Agnew's thinking that those taking part in
the Moratorium aided Hanoi more than they helped the
American GI to come home, they shied away from apply-
ing such a harsh label on many, who were patriotic Amer-
icans, but still offered their influence for peace.
Not too many can argue with Mr. Agnew's direction
of travel, but, in his position,, he is just a little harsh at
times. We understand that even his mouth is now size
10, to match his foot, which has found itself thoroughly
imbedded in his mouth so many times of late.
By far the majority of Americans objected to the
aid and comfort give-n to the' enemy by the Moratorium.
One columnist, (James White, we believe) offered the
opinion that the Moratorium actually backfired .due to
the letter of appreciation sent by Hanoi to Moratorium
headquarters in appreciation for the expressions of many
Most of those objecting to the Moratorium kept quiet

Since I happen to be especially
fond of melons Persian, Casa-

When traveling in Europe I
have always enjoyed the delicious
Spanish melons which ripen 'in
the winter. I recall purchasing
several of them at a fruit stand
in France and how much we en-
joyed eating them in our hotel

but it stands to reason President Nixon's advisors have
felt out the pulse and the President will follow his original
plan of gradual lessening of U. S. involvement rin the
shooting, while stepping up support and advisement.
One particular paragraph concerning the Morator-
ium and Mr. Agnew, written by William Buckley, struck
our eye. It went thusly:
". What would that group of protesterss) die for?
Their idealism? What are the idealisms of the young pro-
testors? Freer education? More free speech at the Uni-
versity of California? Why did not a single one of the
demonstrators denounce the Viet Cong imperialists ? What
goes on in the minds of the youth who fret and fuss and
moan over a minimum wage of only a dollar and a quar-
ter an hour, and strut their epicene resentment over a gal-
lant national effort to keep an entire section of the globe
from sinking into the subhuman wretchedness of Asiatic
Communism? Why do they demand that the United States
withdraw but fail to demand that the Communists with-
draw? They are the kind of people who would have de-
serted little Anne Frank, if her tormentors had been Com-
munists rather than Nazis."
While Mr. Agnew continues on his rocky and out-
spoken path, he has accomplished one thing for sure.
No longer does one see the question, "Spiro who?"
where they will be distributed
the country ever three weeks
throughout the winter season. We
can look forward to finding these
delicious melons in our markets
when no other melons are availa-
Each shipment will be about
18,000 cases of these delicious
melons. On arrival in Miami they
will be placed in deep freeze un-
til distributed by truck and rail-
While California grows some
melons in the winter few ever
reach our area and the price is so
high that few can afford them.
Now with these Spanish melons
coming to us from Spain we can
look forward to enjoying them
during the off season.
Harry Sturm, president of Ron-
den Foods Systems, Inc. said the
Spanish melons shipments are of
special significance to the Port
of Miami. It is the first time that
Florida has been selected as the
major port of entry for Spanish
food from the Alicante, Spain, or-
chards which formerly went to
New York. It indicates the im-
portance of Florida in the import
field and suggests that in the fu-
ture we will be considered not
only by the, food but by othe
European industries interested in
the American market.
Ronden Food Sfstems keeps the
melons in cold storage at the'
American Purveyors Plant in
Miami and then they are shipped
by truck and rail throughout the
Ronden Food Systems keep the
the major South Florida suppli-
ers of fresh fruit and vegetables.
They believe that other fruit and
vegetable exporters, especially
of items not available in this

soon be using a Florida port.
Heretofore no such shipments
have been made to any port
south of Baltimore.

Wise land use will keep streams

one of the best ways to restore and
improve fishing and hunting is to
encourage wise use and conserva-

foundation of good health is the

Conservation helps reduce flood

Conservation increases farm pro-

ductive farm land carries its share-
of the taxes, and contributes pro-

I was out at the hospital the other day, visiting a couple of
friends, when I happened to pass by a room and saw old Sam Mc-
Cathen in one of the rooms, lying up there in bed, as big as you
I went in to see Sam and asked him how he was getting along.
Sam said, "Lordy, I've had the pneumonia, but right now I'm just
livin' it up layin' bed and eating, waiting' for them to tell me when
to go home." Sam was enjoying himself and taking advantage of
the rest and the attention. <*
Sam has always been quick to size up a situation, though. I
used to fish with Sam quite a bit and one day we were casting up
in the Dead Lakes, fishing for bass. I was fishing out of the front
of the boat and Sam was paddling and fishing just as much as I was
out of the back and never missing a stroke on that paddle. All of
sudden a big bass hit Sam's plug. "Play him, Sam", I yelled. "Yas
suh!", said Sam. "I'll play with him just as soon as I reel
him in this boat!"
This bit of learned information came from the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Department
and shows evidence of much laborious experimentation.
Question: Why is the grass greener on the other side?
Answer: Because the chicken crossed the road.
Skinny Fite stopped me on the street the other day and offered
the opinion that the "banty rooster" traveling with our covey of
quail is not a banty at all, but is a "Jungle Cock".
Skinny had basis for his supposition that is pretty convincing.
It seems the "Jungle Cock" is a rare game bird which the
Game Department is introducing to South Florida, trying to stock
that area for hunters. (This is to go along with the walking cat-
fish, the giant snails and the poisonous toads found recently). The
Game Department shipped about 60 of the "Jungle Cocks" into
Port St. Joe, where they wound up at Skinny's office (before he re-
tired, that is). The birds stayed at his place for several days and
Skinny became riled at the Game Department for treating these
birds in such a manner. So! Skinny and his partner in crime,
Elmore Godfrey took the birds and released them out back of
Then it 'was the Game Department's turn to be riled, since it
seems these birds were pretty expensive. But it was too. late then.
Skinny thinks this "banty rooster" is one of his\"Jungle Cocks".
So, if you are ever in our area and see the quail, look hard at
the banty rooster traveling with them and see if you think it's a
Nasty joke department.
A group of the younger set in Port St. Joe started the rumor
that they were going to have a "Taco Festival", whatever that might
be. Then they started calling their "friend" George Duren and call-
ing for Taco sauce. "Friend George", they said, "there is no Taco
sauce in this town-being it's so far removed from the Taco home
of Old Mehico and our "Taco Festival" is doomed to fall flat on its
face. We had such great hopes (long, long face)!"
George (good fellow that is), ordered two cases of the stuff on
this kind of guarantee(?).
What started out as a joke might turn out well after all, though. P
If we ever do have a "Taco Festival" here in Port St. Joe, George
has sauce a-plenty for a real ring-a-ding.

The human body is an effluent oigAism. It nm Io dclock-
work with each vital part doing s Job. Whem one of these
parts breaks down or a foreign substance attacks the body
reacts to the blow In a way all its own. Chemicals in the dis-
eased area begin immediately to repair the beak. Often
these are not enough and chemicals from other rt of the
body are utilized. When this happens a chemical imbalance
Is caused. Your doctor examines you to determine the
amount antl type of chemicals involved. He may feel it nec-
essary to add chemicals to your system In order to defeat
the disease... this is a prescriptio By I* k diagnosis he
can determine which chemicals will do you the most good.
Some systems are stronger or better eqIfpped to handle
disease. They require less medication. Others need more
outside help. Each person Is different. That is why you

there just isn't room enough for

offered a compromise of widen.

"With the room available", ob-
served' Commissioner Graham,
the only other solution is to
leave the street like it is and

Port St Joe's Sharks had thi
defense wound up tight as

rolling as usual Friday night
a 32-0 rout of the Chipley Tige
at the Tigers' Homecoming.
The fired-up Shark defen
had held the Tigers sputterir
offense to a minus 25 yards
the end of the half, but Port S
Joe's coaches decided to give e
erybody on the bench a chance
during the second half, and th
Tigers managed to pick up the
deficit and. wound up 52 yar
to the good by the game's en
The Tigers made only six firs
downs, three of these by Shar
The Tigers made their onl
scoring threat in the last per
iod when they made it to th
Shark four-yard line, where th
Sharks put the stopper on them
Even with the 32 points score'
the game was loosely played wit]

teams, each committing 10. ThE
Sharks recovered six of their owi
fumbles and captured five of the
,The Sharks put 12 points on
the scoreboard in the first per
iod. The first six points came on
a seven yard pass from Chuck
Roberts to Buddy Boyette in the
end zone. The second six-pointer
came when Archie Shackleford
scooped up a Chipley fumble and
galloped to the 30 yard line. Den-
nis Atchison took the hand-off
and made one of the finest Shark
runs this season to cross the goal
In the second period, center
Mike Wimberly was on hand
when the Chipley runner was
jarred loose from the ball and
he ran 15 yards for his first
Reserve quarterback Perry
Atkison took over at the second
half and worked the team down
to the one yard line early in the
third period, where Billy Glenn
Harper, having a good night at
his fullback spot, carried over
for the six points.
The Sharks ended their scor-
ing in the last seconds of the
third period, when Charles Giv.
ens grabbed the ball from the
Chipley quarterback and ran 75
yards for the TD. Roberts carried
the ball over for the only two
point conversion for, the Sharks.
Defensively, the Sharks spar-
kled, anticipating every Tiger
move, led by Jimmy Lancaster,
Billy Glenn Harper, Adrian Gant
and Buddy Boyette.
Chuck Roberts, Billy Glenn
Harper and Dennis Atchison pro-
vided most of the offensive
punch behind a Shark .forward
wall that let them do just about
anything they wanted to.

Boys Have Right Combinati n for Catching "Specks"
It doesn't take a fancy rig to catch speckled
trout, as this catch of 52 will show. Andy May, Bill
Norton and Bruce May caught this mess of specks
in the Bay Saturday afternoon. They pulled their
12-foot skiff down to the bay on a coaster wa-

set to work.
