Board of Health Says No Physic
& + Danger Found from Basic Fall-out
Representative Joe Chapman
brought a long-awaited report to
the County Commission Tuesday
morning, that the State Board of
Health has compiled relative to
possible health hazards from Ba-
sic Magnesia fallout.
Chapman said the State Board
of Health has reported that no
danger to health or ill effects
can be blamed on the fallout, but
the Board still says that inhaling
the dust is still, not good for a
person, even though they can see
no health hazard.
BASIC GIVEN TIME
Chapman said that Basic had
been sent letters and given time
to reply to the Board of Air and
Water Pollution as to their time
table for installing anti-pollutant
devices. Plant manager, Bob Free-
man had reported to an earlier
meeting of the Board that the
plant was changing over to dolo-
mite for a raw product rather
than shells, around the first of
1970, and engifteering would be-
gin then, since the dolomite
effluent would require different
treatment than the shell efflu-
Walter Starnes,. representing
the Air and Water Pollution Con-
trol Board, said that Basic had
been cited by the Board on De-
,cember 16 and instructed to go
ahead with their pollution con-
trol devices. The Board asked for
plans to be presented to them
by January 1 of this year. Basic
asked for and received an exten-
sion to February 15 on filing of
tentative plans, with final plans
for the control devices to be
submitted to the state agency.
Construction would begin immed-
Starnes said that Basic is ex-
pected to have the control device
in operation around June 1 of
this year. He then admitted later
that the devices are tailor-made
for each situation and in most
instances it takes a year to 18
months for delivery from manu-
Chapman stated that the citing
of Basic didn't mean that the
firm was reluctant to proceed
or that they were being punished.
He said many firms have been
cited in Florida, which is more
of a formality at this stage. He
said Basic had been very coop-
erative as had most industry in

On hand for the demonstration
and instruction were nurses from

In short, the course was de-

measures are needed.
"The outlook for the savings
and housing markets in 1970 is

Jr., Manager, Citizens Federal

said today. Mr. Stevens comment-

"much depends on the progress
made in the fight against infla-
tion, and all of us hope that the
anti-inflation measures prove
much more effective in 1970 than
they did in 1.969."
Mr. Stevens reported that as of
December 31,1969, total savings
deposits of the association a-
mounted to $4,731,541.41; mort-
gage loans on the books totaled

that release of $7,200 for plan-

Chapman said that 'release of

Florida State University has
indicated that they were ready
to begin as soon as the money

PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, tla. 32456 THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 1970
On New Year's Day, J. Edgar Hoover marked his 75th
birthday. For more than 45 of those 75 years Mr. Hoover
has served in the capacity of Director of the Federal Bu-
reau of Investigation-Attorney General Harlan Fiske
Stone appointed him as head of the, then, Bureau of In-
vestigation in 1924.
Mr. Hoover changed the name of the Bureau and many
of its functions. One of his first chores was the elimina-,
tion of low level corruption and high level politics then
rife in the Bureau. The integrity that is the FBI is found-
ed in the trust built up over the years by the man him-
self. Mr. Hoover served under eight presidents and six-
teen attorneys general and there is little to indicate that
he will ever be replaced-so long as his health allows.
There have been times when it appeared that he might
be asked to step down. It is no secret that' the three attor-
neys general, proceeding the present holder of that office
-John Mitchell, who seems to get along quite well with
the FBI head-did not see eye to eye with Mr. Hoover.
But, all important public opinion is still strongly in favor
of retaining this man, who has served so well for so long
a span of time.
During the last presidential campaign Vice President
Humphrey implied that there might be a new head of
the FBI in his administration. But Mr. Nixon got more
mileage from his statement that there would definitely be
a new attorney general. It would be hard to prove which
statement garnered more votes, but President Nixon is
in the White House and Mr. Humphrey is a private citi-
zen. Ramsey Clark ditto. And J. Edgar Hoover is still
in his office at the FBI.
We congratulate FBI Director Hoover on reaching
the three-quarter century mark. We hope that he will
continue to serve the nation on the front lines in the fight
against organized crime, lawlessness and those who would
attempt to destroy this country of ours-be they com-
munists or anarchists. A very Happy Birthday to you,
Mr. Hoover and many more of them!
The author of the Declaration of Independence, Tho-
mas Jefferson, in a letter to his' 15-year-old nephew,
wrote, "Let your gun be the constant companion of your
walks." Drafting the Virginia Constitution in 1776, Jef-
ferson also wrote: "No free man shall ever be debarred
the use of arms." Possession of firearms is one of the
most fundamental traditions' and rights of U. S. citizens.
It is so closely interwoven with personal liberty under
the Constitution that attempts to impose confiscatory
regulatory measures on citizen gun ownership, if succes-
ful, could weaken the very fiber of U.S. representative
government. In the futile campaign to curb crime by
penalizing the law-abiding, the authors of oppressive gun
controls have shown an unacceptable lack of contact
There are vast regions of the nation, from coast to
coast, where people still depend on guns as a tod6 in
business, as well as an instrument of sport. A survey of
farmers from the Gulf Coast to the far Pacific Northwest
and back to Michigan found that 93 per cent of agricul-
turists own guns-usually one to four rifles, shotguns
and handguns apiece. The guns are used to protect pro-
perty, eliminate predatory or dangerous invaders such as
coyotes and rattlesnakes, and insure personal safety in
areas where the forces of law are spread thinly.
The recent action of the U. S. Senate in approving
the easing of regulations concerning sales of rifle and
shotgun ammunition indicates a return of common sense
in the matter of gun controls. Thomas Jefferson would

In understanding what Art is,
we can come to a better idea of
Art by looking, to the Artist and
trying to find out what makes him
tick. As we will discover two worlds
exist. One is the world outside our-
selves, this being the Earth, Sun,
Moon, and the whole Universe. The
other world is the one inside each
of us. This world is our personality
and human experiences.
The sciences deal with the out-
side world and the Artist works
on the inner world. In both worlds
discoveries are made. There is one
difference between them and that
is in science. Each discovery can be
added to other discoveries like a
chain but Art and the experience
is always in oneself and can not be
given to anyone else.
An Artistic truth cannot be
judged by the general public. The
scientist will not allow his con-
clusions to be tested by the plum-
ber or a meat cutter, but looks to
the men in his field who will give
him a more scientific answer. Ar-
tistic truth may be shown to the
public to see how they react since
they are personalities but for the
truth to be weighted against the
judgement of those who are more
sensitive to human problems and
have more understanding in the
field of expression will be more
valuable than the public. Those peo-
ple who understand painting and
are sensitive to it constitute the
group of judges for the validity of
a work of Art.

All you had to do last week was meet someone on the street
and the question was posed, "How cold was it this morning"?
The one truthful answer that could be readily supplied was, "Cold".
Of course, "cold" like everything else is relative. "Cold" here
is anything under 45 degrees. It doesn't take much of Mother
Nature leaving the icebox door open to heavily affect this area.
Some reported that the temperature got as low as 18 degrees
last Thursday night, and for Port St. Joe, that's cold. Last Friday
the temperature didn't get above freezing in the shade all day
long. Thursday, it was way up in the afternoon before temper-
atures got above freezing. It isn't too unusual for us to have some
ice in the morning a few days during the winter, but to have two
days in a row, with temperatures freezing or below is unusual and
At that it wasn't as bad as it was in Montpelier, Vermont.
Two weeks ago those folks had 50 inches of snow dumped on them.
Last week they had 20 degrees below zero to go along with their
snow. That's enough to make a man go south.
Along with the cold weather, came a mass of dry air Friday
which played havoc with everyone trying to run a piece of ma-
chinery because of static electricity.
We went to the barber shop Friday morning and the barbers
were having a dickens of a time with hair, -clippers and scissors
all trying to stick together. -^
The grocers were having trouble with their open-top freezer
cases which depend on heavy air to hold the cold air in. The light
dry, cold air was letting the colder air escape.
Here at The Star, nothing would run right. The static elec-
tricity stretched the belts which ran from the motors to the saws,
, presses and typesetters. The opposite effect was felt by the ink
rollers on the presses, which shrank, causing improper inking of
the type forms. Most of the day was spent -tightening belts and
re-setting rollers. When it warms up, it will all have to be done
over again in reverse.
But at least we got the bugs killed.
You can tell it's the first of the year, because all of the
"drives" are starting.
This month the National Foundation is conducting its March
of Dimes. Next month it's the Heart Fund; March is Red Cross
month and in April, the Cancer drive gets underway.
And don't forget those taxes.
After all the fupd drives are over, politics will get into high
gear, beginning to woo your vote for the September primaries.
Politicing will be hot and heavy during the hot and heavy
summer months. It'll be easy to work up a sweat when the poli-
ticians begin to show you how earnest they are, by. squeezing out
a drop or two of perspiration while agonizing over a problem that
they can solve, if you will just cast your vote in their favor.
All in all, it looks like a busy year ahead.

stood at his bedside were Marcel-

White Moss and Ray B., who en-

place to seek their fortune. White
settled in Jacksonville and his
younger brother chose Orlando.

Mrs. Costin will serve as the
Council representative for Flor-
ida's smaller communities. She
is one of 15 prominent Floridians
who were appointed to the re-
cently reorganized council. The
purpose of the council is to en-
courage the development of the
fine arts, including the recom-
mending of local projects to re-
ceive federal matching grants.
The council operates as a policy
formulating board to the Secre-
tary of State and the Legislature.

"With the proper encouragement
and guidance, there is no reason
why Florida cannot soon become
one of the truly great cultural
centers in the Nation."
Adams predicted that one of
the benefits of an expanded cul-
tural events program would be
to attract thousands of new visi-
tors to the State annually.
Mrs. Costin, who lives at 1206

The Gulf County Commission
went on record Tuesday as favor-
ing a more southerly route for
Interstate Highway 1-10, and ex-
pressed their desire in a resolu-
tion drafted and sent to the De-
partment of Transportation.
The. resolution points out the
need for a main four-lane high-
way artery in this part of Florida
to insure growth and access to
the" tourist and industrial com-
plexes in this part of Florida. It
is pointed out that four-laning of
Highway 90, already in progress,
has made land prices climb in
that area, where 1-10 is tenta-
tively routed, and a more sou-
therly route would save rnoney
as well as serve' a growing area.
The resolution suggests that
the new highway dip down thru
the northern section of Gulf
In another resolution, the
Board called on the State Apsoc-,
iation of County Commissioners
to favor resolution calling for a
referendum of the people invol-
ved before any counties can be
abolished or joined together in
the State of Florida.
This is designed to head off
any revival of a move in the
last session of the Legislature to
consolidate several of the coun-
ties of Florida into larger units.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy, a
member of the Board of Direc-
tors of the State Association was
to present the resolution to a
board meeting for adoption yes-t
