School Board Receives Copy of Plan
HEW Proposes for South Gulf Co.
The Gulf County School Board
received a copy this week of
the plan the Health, Education
and Welfare office of the United
States Government will present
to U. S. District Court Judge,
David L. Middlebrooks on Au-
gust 1 in Tallahassee.
The School Board and HEW
attorneys will appear before the
Court on Friday, August 7 to de-
fend their plans.
A decision should be forth-
coming within a matter of just
a few days after the hearing.
HEW's plan applies only to
South Gulf County in one part,
since the Wewahitchka area is
already integrated into one
school plant. The Port St. Joe
area problem stems from the
fact that four separate schools
are needed to care for the pupil
load three elementary schools
and one high school. /
The government's plan calls
for a division line to be drawn
at Seventh Street. HEW's plan
gives specifications for those
areas "West" and "East" of Sev-
enth street, but, of course, the
street runs East and West and
areas in these directions would
be in the bay and East of the
When" HEW realizes their mis-
take, their plan will read that
all elementary age children
South of, Seventh Street, grades
K-6 will attend Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary School at the old Port

A Note Inside
John Braun, transplanted Chicagoan here in Port St. Joe roams
the beaches now that he is a resident. Last Wednesday afternoon
he found this sealed bottle containing a note inside. John would
like to/find the writer of the note, but he hesitates to open the
bottle, wanting to keep it like it is. The note says something about
an experiment, but nothing else can be made out. John would like
for the person who put the bottle in the Gulf to come forth so he
can find out what the note says and still keep his sealed bottle.
A fear of commercial scallop-
ing depleting the scallop popu-
lation in St. Joseph Bay was in-
troduced to the County Commis-
sion meeting Tuesday night.
Commissioner Rudy Pippin re-
ported that several citizens ha'd
approached him with a concern
for protecting the scallop crop
in the bay if present commercial
harvesting continued. All of the
scalloping boats are from out of
Pippin said that he and his
family also liked to pick up scal-
lop in the Bay and that he felt'
there were not enough of the
shellfish in the bay to harvest
commercially without destroying
the sport and pastime of picking
up for local citizens.
Attorney Rish said that the
problem had been brought to him
to explore the legality of com-
mercial scallop harvest in the
bay, Rish said he had contacted
Conservation Officer Lou Liv-.
ings who investigated the matter
and reported the scallopers were
breaking no laws.
Rish said that Livings reported
the scallopers were not having
much luck with their operation
. and were pulling out of the bay
today or tomorrow.
The Board asked Rish to ar-
range for Lt. Gordon McCall,
area officer for the Conservation
Department to appear at the next
Board meeting to explain the re-
sult from continued commercial
harvest of, scallops in the bay.
The Board's thinking s to con-
sider a local law baring the
practice if it is harmful to con-
tinued scallops in the bay.
In other business the County
agreed to re-arrange their fence
alongside a ditch draining 10
square miles in the Wewahitchka
area, to keep it from washing
out in every heavy rainfall.
Jimmy Lee Frazier and Rev.
Otis Stallworth asked that two
streets be cleared in the new
subdivision recently created in
North Port St. Joe so that con-
struction could begin. The re-
quest was approved.
The Board suggested that the
City of Port St. Joe negotiate
with Tax Assessor Samuel A. Pat-
rick and Tax Collector Harland
Pridgeon over the amount to be
charged the City for assessing
and collecting the City's taxes
provided by a new law.
It was brought to the attention
of the board that the ceiling in
the jail of the old Courthouse is
about to fall in. A wall was re-
moved to provide storage for the
commodity program. Now the
ceiling is sagging.
The Board agreed to request
the Department of Transporta-
tion to designate that section of
Highway 98 between the Over-
pass and the Gulf County Canal
bridge at Highland View as a
"No Passing" zone.

Houses Under Construction
This photograph shows the beginnings of
two of four new homes now under construction
in the Port St. Joe area. These houses, plus one
other are being built in Ward Ridge. The fourth
home is being built on Marvin Avenue. The new
ditional $33,000 will be the tax
income from local citizens.
It is noted in the budget that
even with two new schools in
operation and two closed down,
operation of plants is expected
to be only $6,750 more than last
year at $137,250.00. Maintenance
of, plants is expected to be $62,-
000.00, an increase of $10,000.
The debt service budget took
an $80,000 increase mainly be-
cause of the $1 million bond levy
voted on last year.
The budget for capital im-
provements took a whopping $1
million slice because of construc-
tion projects being completed in
the 1969-70 budget.

ed the truck became disabled
and he parked it on the shoulder
and put out flares. No flares
were out at the time of the ac-
cident, according to Murphy.
The Highway Patrol report
shows that Shiver was traveling
East on the road when he met
another car. He was blinded by
the lights and slammed into the
logs protruding from the rear of
the parked truck. Logs went
through the windshield and the
grill, all the way through the
car on the passenger side.
Shiver's car was estimated at
a total loss.

HEW's Plan Creates Problem
If HEW's plan for Gulf County's lower grades inte-
gration in the Port St. Joe area is accepted by the courts,
it will create a moral necessity to bus 'tiny tots from
Seventh Street to the county line,, merely to satisfy a bu-
reaucrat's notion of what is best for the people of Gulf.
The people of this area, with very few exceptions, will
not take kindly to the idea of moving their children like
so many pawns, when they have perfectly good schools
within walking distance of their homes.
HEW, in its zeal, has unwittingly created a segre-
gated school in Port St. Joe in the Port St. Joe Elementary
School. In so doing, they have created a patchwork crazy
quilt of the Washington Elementary and Highland View
Elementary schools merely for the sake of saying they
will be integrated.
'Using Seventh Street as a boundary line, HEW's plan
would place students in K through 3 in Highland View,
and Grades 4 through 6 would be placed in Washington
Elementary. Although, legally, the School Board will
not have to bus these students to and from school, morally
they must, even, though nearly all live within the two
mile busing limit of the school to which HEW wants to
According to Gulf County school officials this would
require them to purchase five more buses which aren't
in the budget nor are these funds available to gerymander
the budget to make the necessary money available.
The necessity to bus is still up in the air state-wide
and nationally, making FIEW's plan suspect from that
viewpoint. Busing, merely to reach a balance of racial in-
tegration, has also been attacked by educators of both
In an article entitled "Will Busing Make Them Better"
published in the May issue of Reader's Digest, Mrs. Thelma
Miller, a black who is director of the New York City dis-
trict of the New York Congress of Parents and Teachers
said, "Let's make all schools equally good for all chil-
dren. Then nobody will mind what school his child attends".
This is what Gulf County officials have worked for the
past two years to accomplish and have done so.
George Romney, Secretary of Housing and Urban De-
velopment, has said: "Busing is not the basis for overcom-
ing the vital problems resulting from separation of our
people in most communities. I believe that every American
schoolchild is,entitled to the opportunity to attend a qual-
ity school within a reasonable distance from his home."
Gulf's plan of neighborhood elementary schools car-
ries out Mr. Romney's ideas.
William Raspberry' a black columnist for the Washing-
ton "Post", observed recently: "One reason why the schools
are doing such a poor job of educating black children is
that we have spent too much effort on integrating them
and too little on improving them. Integration was simply
a means to an end. Much of the confusion today stems
from the factthat the means has now become an end in
itself busing is being instituted-nriot to improve educa-
tion, but to integrate classrooms".
We cite Mr. Raspberry's words as the reasons for the
latest move in the Gulf County case by HEW. Gulf Coun-
ty has been working hard for the past several years to
get in a position to offer a quality education to all chil-
dren, white or black. But.quality education seems to be
of secondary importance now.
Since the Supreme Court decision in 1954, whites
and blacks have mellowed to the fact that whites and
blacks will attend school together in our nation. It does
not bother us for our children to go to school with children
of other races. The people of the black race are just peo-
ple. Whether children go to school with whites, blacks,
Indians, Chinese, Japanese or South Sea islanders is of
little consequence to us. The environment in which they
We think that the avowed purpose of HEW to uproot
small children from their familiar environment and trans-
port them merely for the purpose of achieving racial mix-
ture is wrong. It's wrong for blacks and for whites.
We hope the School Board can present a case which
will convince the courts that our plans for neighborhood
quality schools is done in the best interest of the children
of all races.
Children Being Starved
We understand that over half of those red-blooded
.young American boys who appear for their induction phy-
sicals can't pass the test for one reason or another. If
you would iead accounts of this situation, one would gather
the implication that this is a nation of weaklings.
If there is any reasoning behind this course of events
it is probably due to a revelation which came out in the
papers last week. Our breakfast cereal is inferior insofar
as providing needed vitamins and minerals is concerned.
While feeding "Junior" Wheaties to make him the
All-American Boy, we were actually starving him at this
most important meal of the day. His muscles weren't
being built by Post Toasties, at all. Total didn't put the

One thing we're blessed with at our house is dogs. We have
the poodle "Pierre" in the house the big poodle, not your min-
iature or toy variety, and we have a seven month old collie pup and'
a german shepherd that has taken up at our house, outside.
There is an endless list of incidents when one has three dogs.
And, with three dogs, one has one for every use imaginable. The
poodle is good for sleeping, eating, petting, etc. He is also good
for taking a hand off someone who lays a hand on one of the
women-folk in our house (and that includes me).
The "outside dogs" are a different matter. The collie was
"contracted" for by son, Willie, and brought to the house back
in late February. The German shepherd just took up at our house
a month or two ago, thin, ragged looking, scared to death of any-
one who would come near him. Now, he is well fed, and reasonably
well adjusted to having a friendly person about. With this kind
of attention he has stayed at our house, and so far as I know, hasn't
even tried to find his way back to his former home which doesn't
speak well 'for his former home.
The German shepherd and the collie have become fast friends.
Where the collie goes, the shepherd' is only a step or two behind.
The shepherd is evidently proud of his new found home and
the friendship of the collie, because he proved the other day that
he is a true and loyal friend to the collie.
The other day the dog catcher came by and the collie and shep-
herd were out in the road. Neither has a collar, since number one
son, Ray, who is also a dog lover, gave the mutts their rabies shots
and we had never picked up a tag to hang around their necks. The
dog catchers, noticing this, stopped to pick up the dogs. Nobody
was at home to identify them so the dog catcher proceeded with
hit job or at least tried to.
It wasn't too much of a chore to put the collie into the dog
pound on back of the catcher's 'truck. The collie is naturally a
friendly cuss and he figured Charlie Lewis (acting dog catcher) was
nothing but another friend come to pet him. So in short order,
Charlie had the collie in the truck. But the German shepherd was
another matter. He has been at our house long enough for the
family to put hands on him, but he's still skittish around strangers
and is very adept at dodging out of the way. He just wouldn't
let Charlie or his helper get near enough to him to put him in the
So Charlie and his helper started driving off with only the
collie in the back and the shepherd started following his friend
who was incarcerated in the jug on the truck. The truck went all
the way to the City Warehouse with the shepherd following
close behind. Then Charlie went down First Street to Highway 98
and out to the dog pound with the shepherd following behind.
When they arrived at the dog pound, the collie was put in a
cage and the shepherd went right in with him.
The moral of this story is that when one will run three miles
to get in jail with a friend to keep him company that's friend-
ship of a brand one hardly sees any more.
We "sprung" them both out within an hour by going on their
bond and getting them a collar and tag.

Rev. Spikes Speaks
To Rotary Club
The operation procedure of a
particular church is usually known
only to its members, but last Thurs-
day, Rev. Millard Spikes, pastor of
the First United Methodist Church
described some of the operational
procedure of that church to the Ro-
The church has a two-fold pur-
pose, Spikes said: placing an or-
dained minister in the community
to serve the people and as'a base
where its members have an outlet
of things beyond.
Each local Methodist church
serves as a connecting link to the
Methodist Church in the United
States. In this situation, the church
not only operates its own program
and benevolences, but also coop
crates with work performed by
the church throughout its district
and the United States.
The local church directly coop-
erates in the operation of a chil-
dren's home, two homes for the
aged, operates a camp at Blue Lake
Alabama and secures homes for
retired preachers retirement.

OK for Cattle
GAINESVILLE Despite ser-
ious yield losses from an epidemic
of Southern corn leaf blight, there
is absolutely no evidence that
this disease organism is harmful
to animals or that grain produc-
ed from diseased plants is in any
way unsatisfactory for feeding or
selling, University of Florida's
Provost for Agriculture, Dr. E. T.
York, Jr., said July 24.
"The concern expressed about
allowing cattle to feed on corn
fields attacked by blight grows
out of the fact that there is al-
ways a possibility that, under cer-
tain circumstances, other disease
organisms which are toxic to an-
imals can develop and cause dam-
age. However, the likelihood of
this happening this year seems
no greater than under normal cir-
cumstances," Dr. York said.
The University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS) is now consider-
ing ways to deel effectively with
this problem next year. "We are
confident that long before corn
is' ready to be planted next spring,
we will be in a position to advise
farmers concerning satisfactory
means of dealing with the pro-
blem," the Provost said.
Southern corn leaf', blight,, also
known as Helminthosporium may-
dis is not a new disease, but the
damage this year is perhaps the
greatest in history due to wea-
ther conditions and other factors
favorable to its development.
Despite serious yield losses,
there is absolutely no evidence
that this disease organism is
harmful to animals or that grain
produced from diseased plants is
in any way unsatisfactory for feed-
ing or for sale.
In planning for the future,
growers have several possible
courses of action. Since losses
from southern corn leaf blight are
greater where seed are produced
by use of male sterile cytoplasm
than by detasseling, growers can

in several streams including the
Bluegill and river bream eas-
ily hold on to "best bet" ranking
for anything like top fishing
success this week. Shellcrackers
in scattered waters also are bit-
ing again, and fair catches are
coming out of St. Vincent Island
Refuge, and out of Lake Wimico.
Rebel baits are good for bass
on Lake Wimico.
Bluegill easily are attracting
the most fishermen, however,
with spat fishing with crickets
and fly fishing with popping
bugs, early and late, doing "pret-
ty well' right now. Crickets and
worms, particularly red worms
and wigglers are standard baits.
River bream are fair to good
in the middle Apalachicola River.
The lower Chipola River and
Dead Lakes, although clear, have
too much water temporarily for
top fishing. By mid-week the run-
off is expected to put these wa-
ters in satisfactory condition.
Indications again this week
are that, notwithstanding the
time of year and hot weather,
fishing prospects are fair to
good if one picks his water and
keeps a likely bait working ear-
ly and late.
