Sb behind by four points, but
a jump shot by Steve Macom-
ber, a steal by Langston and

Belin quickly snatched the lead

It was still nip and tuck up un-

Four Varsity Players
Suspended from Team
At least four varsity basket-
ball players have been released
from the team and suspended
from school for 10 days, accord-
ing to Zack Wuthrich, Principal
of Port St. Joe High School.
Wuthrich said the boys have
admitted breaking into lockers
at the school on several occa-
sions since last November. He
said officials knew how the.
lockers were being broken into
three weeks ago and attempts to
catch those responsible were
successful this week.
Wuthrich said that in addition
to the 10 day suspension and be-
ing relieved from the varsity
team which is on its way to a
state championship, the boys will
be under strict probation for the
remainder of the school year.

day and asked for the property
for use in this manner. Although
the School Board was receptive

loud for purposes of discussion,
the School Board offered to let
the City use the gymnasium and
school building for a period of
three years for recreational pur-
poses before any permanent de-
cision is made.

Chamber of Commerce Talk?
TALLAHASSEE Human er-
ror is an overwhelming factor in
traffic accidents the Florida High-
way Patrol said today.
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
After listening to geographer Ralph Unger explain
the reasons for the demise of old St. Joseph back in the
1840's and 1850's, recently, it set us to thinking.
Old St. Joseph must have had the first' Chamber of
Commerce in the nation.
Somewhere or other the tale started spreading that
the old City' died because of its sins. The plagues of yel-
', low fever, tidal wave, hurricanes and even a big forest fire'
were said to be inflicted on the wicked City wiping -the
s;a'late clean allowing a new start after the turn of the cen-
Another reputation that persists is that the old City
was a veritable "Sodom" of the Gulf Coast in its time. We
have heard nothing repudiating this, so it must have been
a' little less than sedate and serene in Old St. Joseph.
Unger presented documentation from official records
to show that the City did not, in fact, just vanish from
existence., Gradually it died for lack'of any means of sup-
port 'for its people, but nothing so drastic and so definite
Wa tales would' lead us to believe, according to Unger and
h records. "
Now comes the Chamber theory. It seems hardly
feasible that a group who could found a new city would
take losing all they had lying down. They could see their
cotton shipping business dying on the vine, so it seems
likely to us that they formed themselves into some kind of
group to try and maintain the status quo or to rebuild
again toward the grandeur the promoters envisioned for
the City in the beginning.
When we look at the drawing power of movies today
we must draw the natural conclusion: what more power-
ful selling tool could the promoters of old St. Joseph have
than the ploy that here was a city so wicked it is being
destroyed by the elements., If this.didn't draw new blood,
nothing would. That story has stuck until today. People
may not remember just where modern Port St. Joe is, or
what we specialize in here, but, to a man, if they know
anything of, Port St. Joe at all its: "MOh yes, that's the
town that was destroyed by yellow fever and a tidal wave,
So, a lesson to today's Chamber: all you need do is
come up. with some catchy gimmick and everyone will once
again know about Port St. Joe.
A recent study of accidents in
Florida last year revealed that
over 90% of accident causing fac-
tors involved human error.
Colonel Reid Clifton, Director
of the Patrol said, "We cannot
totally eliminate the human er-
ror factor in accidents. The next
best thing is for drivers to be pre-
pared for the mistakes of others
by driving defensively."
Drivers were urged to look far
ahead for accident producing sit-
uations. This will give more time
to avoid a collision by stopping or
taking an escape route. The escape
route theory of driving involves
a path to get away from a deve-
Critical Eye On Sharing
After Governor Reubin Askew's little tussle with
the Florida delegation in Washington last Week, he must
Feel emotionally, like he would feel physically if he had
climbed into the ring for 15 rounds with Muhammad All.
The Florida delegation didn't handle' the Governor
':tenderly at a)l. Every time he would jab with a dig de-
,signed to open up the Federal purse strings for revenue
sharing with the States, the Congressmen would let him
have a round house right to the jaw. The cats of capitol
hill' didn't even use the customer political dictionary in
,telling Askew they weren't interested in fostering such a
program as dividing revenue which wasn't there with the
State of Florida or any other state. They flat told the
1 Governor "no" .4",
Such undiplomatic and unpolitical phrases were used
against the Governor as: "You have just as many powers
to get money as we have"; "the government is in bad
shape itself and hardly able to share revenue"; "the only
thing we can do that you can't is print, money". Hardly
could this be classified as "beating around the bush" lan-

Millions of sincere dedicated

A similar situation is evi-

We're glad the Florida delegation feels this way
about the, matter. Apparently, from what they report of
the attitude of their mail, the majority of their constiu-
ents feel the same way.
Revenue sharing isn't the answer. It doesn't solve
the problem at home and only compounds the problem on
the federal scene, which is already .reaching the point
of apparent no return. -
It 'seems that the State of Florida and every other
state in this nation "needs to start doing like the rest of us

that cannot be financed. Instead of going to Washington -
trying to open the Federal purse strings further, it would

about the rights of those citi-

Waste and inefficiency in
government, f r o m Washing-
ton down to the lowest level, is
costing millions of dollars and
denying rights to taxpayers who
must foot the bill.
Elected officials seem power-
less to protect the rights of
their constituents. Business and
industry seek to protect their
own interests by increasing
prices. In the meantime, we find
more people out of a job, the
cost of living higher and the buy-

down. Taxes of all kinds steadily
increase while tax dollars buy

The other night I plopped into bed, and as is my habit,
decided I'd read for about 30 minutes. I reached up to
the top of our bookcase bed and found a Reader's Digest
which reclines there on top of the reading matter as a
rule. The Digest was turned back, open to an article en-
titled "How to Relax -- Without Pills".
I didn't need to read this article, since I am the
champion relaxer. without pills. All I need is a chance'
to unwind, and immediately, I'm as limp as a dish rag.
Frenchie is always' bugging me with "How can you sit
there and read that paper, never peeking around the edge,
with all this pandemonium that goes on around here all
the time?" The only think I can figure is that it just
comes naturally. I didn't go into training, or take a spe-
cial diet in order to acquire the relaxing excellence which
I admit too. Nor, did I resort to pills.
Relaxing is my long suit. I never was too good at
sports. I liked to throw the baseball when I was a kid,
but I was never any great shakes at it. I liked to play
tennis, and I used to get up at 5;00 in the ayem to play.
I won a game now and then, but never an entire set that
I can recall. I did manage to end up the marble season '
with a few left out of the starting supply. After a month
or two of playing "keeps" I would 'have just enough mar-
bles left to play a game with. Some boys ended with a
cigar box full enough to last them all the next sea-
son. I always had to buy a sack or two.
Everybody should excell at something. Since I have
never been able to exceel at anything else, it makes me
feel satisfied that at any given time, given half a chance,
regardless of the surroundings, whether or not the TV,
the radio, the record player, the piano all playing at once,
the door slamming or whatever, I can turn it all off and
relax without a pill. At this, I am a champion.
The only reason I can figure the Digest was open at
this particular article is that my talent so disturbs and
irritates Frenchie that she is trying to find out how she,
too, can relax or at least keep her composure over my
mastery of this art.
Like any other "champion", I can't tell you how I
do it. It jdst comes naturally.

or-owned utility began this week.
Florida Power Corporation in-
creased its cash dividend for the
t 18th consecutive year, according to
A. P. Perez, president.
The common stock dividend was
$1.68 per share, annually, at the
close of 1970, as' compared- to $1.60
per share, annually, at the end of
1969. Total kilowatt-hour (kwh)
I sales increased 11.6 percent during
1970. Customers served by Florida
Power increased by. 6.3 percent,
the highest :percentage increase
since 1960. During 1970, average
kwh usage' per residential custo-
mer rose by 749 kwh to an average
annual: usage of 9,415, which is 32
percent above, the national' aver-
age of 7,080 kwh.,
To meet future electrical de-
,mand, Florida Power will invest)
over $650 million in the next five
years. Part 'of these funds will go
towards the construction of four
50,000 lkilowatt peaking units, and
the construction of two 515,000
kilowatt oil-fired generating units.
Also included in th efive-year con-
struction budget are funds for ad-
ditional transmission lines, substa-
tions and distribution system.
"In retrospect, 1970 was -i good
year for our customers ,our em-
ployees,, our stockholders and for
the company," Perez s'aid..
"Through the efforts of all Florida
Power Corporation employees, we
haveybeen able to extend high qua-
lity, electrical service to both our
existing *- and thousands of new
customers' in spite of severe in-
flationary pressures. M e e ti n g
these inflationary' pressures be-
comeis increasingly difficult. The
jnext five years will be years of
great challenge and opportunity
for our company," he concluded.

Port' St. Joe High School Seniors
Eddie Holland and Chuck Roberts
moderated a symposium on pollu-

is Club Tuesday discussing such
questions as "How severe is pollu-
tion here in St. Joseph bay", "What
affect had it had' on fish", '"How
dangerous is the oil pollution prob-
lem", and "What laws are being
applied to combat pollution local-
The boys were conducting the
discussion and recording it 1or a
grade in school, as well as prdvid-
ing some important and interesting
information for members of the
On hand for the session, and an-
swering some of the questions
were Gordon McCall, director of
the Florida Marine Patrol in this
area and officer Tommy Pilcher
who polices oil slick problems in
the area. Others taking part were
Gene Raffield, local fisheries op-
erator; George Holland, party
boat operator;, Charles Brock, Port
St. Joe City Auditor and Clerk and
every member of the Kiwanis Club
as interested sports fishermen.
Raffield reported that there has
been a decline of fish population
and an increase in shrimp popula-
tion in St. Joseph Bay over the
past few years. "We're catching
more fish", Raffield said, "but it
is being done with the ute of bet-
ter techniques and tools." Raffield
said he didn't know whether pol-'

The speaker said that railroads
are fast getting out of the passen-
ger service as an economy move,
but stated that the Government is
setting up a non-profit corporation
to begin passenger service again
on 156 trains throughout the na-
tion in an effort to provide first
class mass transportation to alle-
viate the transportation problem
now facing the nation. The corpor-
ation will rent towage from the
railroads. Daniell said passenger
service presently accounts for four'
percent of revenues and has prov-
The freight service of the rail-
roads is practically indispensable,
Daniell told the Rotarians. "Over
41% of all freight moved in the
nation goes by rail", he said. He
predicted a 40% growth for the
demands on this freight-hauling
service, during the next 10 years.
"The growing demand will call
for expenditures of $36 billion to
provide the hardware necessary to
move this volume of freight. With
one third of the class 1 railroads
losing money in 1969, one can eas-
ily see our delimma".
Daniell said that a railroad-
formed organization called "AS-
TRO" is asking for some govern-
ment help in meeting this need.
They are asking for such things
as revision of federal railroad pol-
icies, abandonment of seldom' used
stations, establishment of a low-
interest borrowing fund and return
Daniell pointed out that railroads
maintain their own facilities and
rolling stock while government
provides subsidies such as roads
terminals, waterways, harbors, etc.,
for they competitors.

George Holland stated that it
has been his observation that the
mackerel have moved farther from
shore and no longer are found in
former areas which are now dis-

the beach has been a problem but
that those accused of contribut-

have done a great deal to correct
this problem. "The individual has
been as large a contributor to
beach pollution as industry in the

-ht F tu re
Unlike an old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrip-
fion to do a thorough job... especially the same one for
which; it was originally intended. Drugs lose their potency
'over."a number,of years and some increase in strength
through evaporation. Nbt only might a drug prove ineffec-
tive but it may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-
tions could also affect the prescription. Chemical changes
can-6ccur within the liquid, capsule or tablet. Then, too,
there is the constant danger of a child reaching for an old
prescription. Thinking it's candy... or simply imitating-you
... he might swallowthe contents. The results may be tragic.
Never depend upon a prescription lasting forever. Let your
doctor re-prescribe for your present condition...after all
he isthe expert! And once you have regained your health,
always destroythe remainder of your prescription.

High Tide, Winds
St. Joe Area
A high tide, pushed by a strong
northwest wind pushed the wa-
ters even higher here yesterday
and threatened flooding in sev-
eral portions of the Port St. Joe
Blowing seas were whiping
across U. S. 98 at Highland View
and in the vicinity of Oak
Grove yesterday just before
noon. High seas were also blow-
ing across the highway in the
area of the Municipal Hospital.
Gusts of wind, which the Ap-
alachicola weather bureau said
was gusting in the neighborhood
of 45 miles per hour, had torn
shingles from several homes and
buildings in the area. Some hou-
ses at the beaches had shingles
blown off and a service station
at Highland View had its drive-
way canopy blown away. Several
sheds and small buildings were
blown over or damaged by the
strong gusts. .
Weather bureau officials said '!
that as the winds shift to the
Northeast, the extremely high
tides will be blown back out.
