Acreage Given for Country Club Complex
Gives 173 Acres
'St. Joseph Bay Country Club
took a giant step toward reality
Monday evening, when 172.75
acres of land was turned over to
them, free of charge, to construct
a country club complex two miles
South of Port St. Joe.
George G. Tapper, owner of a
large tract of land South of Port
St. Joe, presented, free of charge,
Monday afternoon, the 173 acre
site to the Gulf County Commis-
sion, with the stipulation that the
property be turned over to the
St. Joseph Bay Country Club for
construction of tle planned rec-
reational complex. County Coin-'
mission Chairman, Silas C. Play-
er, immediately turned the exe-"
cuted deed over to the Country
securing a loan with that agen-
cy. FHA has previously approved
a $265,000 loan to the organiza-
tion, but the loan hasn't been
consummated as yet, until the
club officers could work out fi-
nances to the point where con-
struction could begin.
In addition to the loan, the
club membership of slightly over
300 has put up $37,500 in cash
to help with the construction
costs which were expected to run
in the neighborhood of $290,000
which included purchase of land.
Club president Freeman pointed
out that the construction esti-
mates included purchase 'of pro-
perty, but did not include any
equipment or cash backlog for
operation. He offered the opinion

director for the 1971 March of-
Dimes drive against birth defects.

Mr. Moore will direct the an-
nual fund-raising appeal held in
Gulf County from January 2
through 31. For more than a dec-
ade the March of Dimes has led'
the fight to prevent birth de-

helps support a nationwide net-
work of more than 100 Birth De-,
- fects Centers; programs of pro-
fessional and public health eduda-
tion; and community service. .
In discussing the campaign,,
Mr. Moore said, "It is a great
pleasure to work on a team head-
ed by Mr. Palmer. There is equal
satisfaction in knowing that con-
tributions raised here in Port St.
Joe and Gulf County will bene-
fit these treatment centers in our
area and state."
Moore stated that a special ad-
ded attraction will be featured
in the campaign this month, with
the local chapter participating
in a telethon being aired 'over
station WJHG-TV on January 23
and 24: "We will have a tele-
phone, number here in Port St.
Joe which will be announced per-
iodically throughout, the program
for donors to call during the tele-
thon," Moore said.-
Mrs. Zack Wuthrich will be

Wuthrich has not yet finalized
her plans, -but the Maych will be

Gulf's Entry In Inaugural Parade
Reubin Askew of Pensacola was inaugurated Governor of the
State of Florida in Tallahassee on Tuesday of last week and Gulf
County was there. Gulf entered this beautiful float which was unique
in.design and costuming from the popular theme of the other floats.
Gulf's theme, of course, was pointing out the fact that the first
Constitution for the young State of Florida, back in 1838 was drawn
up right here in old St. Joseph. Gulf's float was eighth in line at
the long parade.
Riding on the float were Holly -Hendrix, daughter of Dr. and
Mrs. J. Wayne Hendrix and Jan Peterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Clinton Peterson, both of Port St. Joe, riding on the front half of
the float. Riding in the middle of the float were Jamie Bailey,

SOn Being Relevant
One of the frequently heard complaints by "dissident"
students is that education today is "not relevant". Of
course, the charge is empty (as are the heads of many of
.ile, students) because "relevant", being an adverb, has
mo meaninhg except as-a modifier of another word. Rele-
,"vant to what? To the problems of the world today? To
the sins of society? To the threat posedoby Soviet aggres-
sion all over the world? A search through reams, of com-
plaints,by unhappy students provides very few clues.
In defense of our schools and colleges, the record
shows that American.education today is certainly "rele-
vant" insofar as providing youth with informational tools

last Thursday. He pointed out the fact that people right
here in Port St. Joe and the State of Florida continually
degrade the quality of education (or the revelance to the
work-a-day world about us) coming out'of our local
and state schools., He pointed with pride to men and wo-
men of all professions who have come out of Port St. Joe
schools and he says he continues to remind the critics of
education that mostly there are products of Florida schools
and' by and large, they have done pretty good with their
We admit to being a critic of the schools in times past
but only in the realm of reading. We advocate phonics in
teaching reading. School people here in Gulf County as-
sure us that phonics is used primarily here in teaching
reading. They also hit us over the head with the fact
that a greater percentage of today's kids read well than
at-~ny other time in history. This is a, "relevant" fact
which we can't deny, because'the proof.is becoming evi-M
dent every day.
So what's "relevant"? About the only thing we can
think of is the "relevance" between what a, person puts
into seeking his education as opposed to -what he gets but
of it for his labors.

A last-ditch effort by Jim Be-
lin and George Williams almost
put the Sharks into overtime with
the Rickards Redskins last Fri-
day night. Rickards had a four
point lead with one minute left
when Belin drew a twq-shot foul
which he made. Rickards then
missed a foul shot with 20 sec-
onds -left. Port St. Joe grabbed
the rebound, but George Williams
missed a last second shot to give
the Redskins a 64-62 victory.
Rickards had a lop-sided lead
after the first period, which ul-
timately gave them the victory
over the Sharks. The Redskins
piled up 22 points in the first
with the Sharks managing only
six. The Sharks took command
for the rest of the game, but
couldn't manage to overcome the
14 point deficit.
George Williams led the Sharks
scoring with 20 points, while
Norris Langston added 17, Jim
Belin 14 and Steve Macomber 10.
Warner led the Rickards at-
tack with 20 points.,

The use of prescriptions in dentistry is a fairly recent de-
velopment. Due to the discovery'and application of certain
types4f drugs, the practice is rapidly expanding. Tranquil+
izers, ,because of their apprehension-curbing nature, have
proved helpful with patients undergoing major'dental work.
1By relaxing the patient in this way, the dentist can go about
'his work more efficiently. Analgesics and antibiotics, are'
also proveids in dental therapy. They speed healing and
prevent or- eight infection. These new applications of pre-
scriktion. drugs demonstrate the,diverse role pharmaceuti-
cals play in our lives. Now, when your dentist prescribe6,
you receive the same benefits of modern medical research'.
as when your physician prescribes. And when you have
'regular physician examinations don't neglect to: have your
teeth checked. Make an appointment with your dentist when
you 'make one with your doctor. As a matter of fact, why not
phone for an appointment today?

Chief' Deputy H. T. Dean said
the Gulf County Sheriff's De-
partment got into the act when,
the stolen car, the three were
driving, got stuck near Wewa-,

trio walked to Wewahitchka and
persuaded Alvin McGlon, gar-
age operator to come pull them
out. They said they would follow
McGlon back to Wewahitchka
and pay for his services there.
Upon getting out of the bog, they
took off in the opposite direction
and McGlon called Wewahitchka

Glass set out after the car and
caught it. He turned, the three
