Dawson Falls 30
teetand Lives i
Richard Dawson, 811 Wood-
ward Avenue, received severe
head injuries last Thursday af-
ternoon, when he apparently
slipped and fell >30 feet to the
ground while working at St. Joe
Paper Company in *the vWood
yard area. :
Dawson, a carpenter at the
mill, was removing the tin roof
from, a building;, according to.
Safety Director Larry Davis,
when the accident, occurred.
Davis said that apparently
Dawson's head injuries' came
by his head striking a scaffold-

Davis said, "We haven't been
able to talk to Dawson yet to de-
termine how he fell, but it looks
a4 if he either slipped or just
lost his footing." Dawson's work-
ing companion had his back turn-
ed when the accident occurred.
Davis said the doctor reports
that Dawson is "doing satisfac-
torily" considering his serious
lead injury and the distance of
his fall. He is a patient in the
intensive care unit at Baptist
Hospital in Pensacola.

According\ to Patrol investiga-
tors, the Watson automobile was
parked beside the road, where
the victim and her husband, Law-
ler F. Watson and Wardlaw Wat-
son, 24 and Charles James Mor-
gan, 26, both of Birmingham,
' had stopped to pick sea oats.
Mrs. Watson was standing be-
tween her car and the road
when Wood's vehicle struck Mrs.
Watson and side-swiped the Wat-
son vehicle, the report says. The
force of the impact knocked\the
parked car into Wardlaw Wat-

around the legs.
Wood was reported to' have
kept going, but he later stopped
and came back to the accident

The Patrol's investigation re-
ported that a witness saw the
Cumbie child running after the
slow moving trash truck, mak-
ing its way up the alley, and
the child slipped under the
Wheel. The driver of the truck
was unaware of the accident un-
til the witness stopped him.
Funeral services were conduct-

were particularly palatable.
He went on to point out that
an examination of the road taxes
are needed. "Tourists pay 40%
of our gasoline taxes now .
There have been no increases in
Florida gasoline taxes since 1941
Florida is below the aver-
age in taxes collected against
gasoline and other commodities."
The entire delegation seemed
to be united in the opinion that
all divisions of state government
could stand some cutting. Again
the Senator, who did most of the
speaking for the night, came to
the front with an example of
how taxes may be cut. "Let's
use the schools as an example",
he said. "I taught school for 19
years, so'I know something about
what I'm saying. And don't think
this is an attack against the
schools. The same' yardstick can
be applied to every division of
Bishop said, "We've gone ad-
ministration happy every
phase of government is adminis-
tration heavy. This has caused
our costs to go up. The cost of
education (and other government
agencies) ,have grown to the point
where they are completely out
of balance with what the people
are able to pay."
The Senator said, "a good
teacher'can teach under an oak
tree a bad teacher can't teach
anywhere", Bishop sail in illus-
trating his point that frills
weren't necessary to get the job
done by Florida government.
Variety of Requests
When one left taxes, the var-
iety of requests for attention by"
state government were almost as
various as the number of peo-

that a second charge not be

-Mrs. John E. Lewis asked
if Florida could be exempt from
Daylight Savings Time. She ask-
ed if the special time could be
limited to summer months only
to help the sleeping and study
habits of school children. Repre-
sentative Rish said several bills
had been entered concerning
Daylight Savings Time, but with
no results in the past.
Representative Cha pman
said he didn't think a proposed
salt water fishing license would
pass during the coming session
of the Legislature. "It doesn't
have much support", he said.
Ed Ramsey noted that the
fishing season was coming and
the boat canal to the Gulf at
Mexico Beach is stopped up.
Rep. Rish told Ramsey that
applications had been made to
five different agencies for per-
mission to dig out the entrance
to the canal. "Nobody can say
'yes' or 'no' ".
Jimmy Frazier asked that
the delegation consider introduce.
tion of a bill requiring a driver
to have auto liability insurance
before he could get a tag. Fra.
zier's proposal, in that form did-
n't create much enthusiasm
among the lawmakers, but they
did say there would be some au-
tomobile insurance reforms in
the coming session.
W. C. Roche asked for some
changes in the "Green Belt law"
stating that "some property now
under the law is being kept for
speculation and doesn't qualify

" 11 STAR. Port St. Joe, Fla. 324t THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1971
Under the Federal Water Quality Improvement Act
of 1970, the federal government sets certain standards
for the operation of oil tankers. Individual states are
enacting similar legislation; but, in some instances, there
'is one great .difference between the federal measure and
, action taken by the states. Federal .law recognizes the
necessity of oil tankers as part of an essential petroleum
supply line. State action, by contrast, threatens to make
the operation of tankers impossible.
James J. Reynolds, president of the American Insti-
tute of Merchant Shipping, an organization that repre-
sents much of the active U. S. flag Merchant Marine, has
warned that certain sections of the present Florida Oil
Spill Prevention and Pollution Control Act ". will serve
to. seriously disrupt interstate and foreign waterborne
commerce" in the Florida area. Mr. Reynolds gave strong
,support to the overall purposes ;,of the Florida Act but
''took a serious view of provisions in it making "... the
owner or operator of a vessel liable to, the State for all
costs of clean-up or other damage incurred ,. ... This un-
limited financial liability 'is imposed regardless of fault,
as no legal defenses are made available."
Reynolds' claims have come home to us here in Port
St. Joe, with local industry facing a shaky future because
of the refusal of oil transportation companies to deliver
oil to Florida ports (including Port St. Joe) because of
too-stringent oil spill laws. As we understand it, only
58 oil delivery concerns in the United States can financially
afford to risk delivering oil to Florida.
Mr. Reynolds states that under these circumstances,
marine insurance underwriters will "refuse to insure the
risks imposed by the Act" which would mean that own-
ers of ships' could not send their vessels into :Florida wa-
ters. He suggests that the Florida Act be amended to
place a ceiling on the extent of liability. This would bring
it into conformity with-federal law and achieve the pur-
pose of pollution control without virtually outlawing the
operation of oil tankers in Florida waters.'
Oil tankers are essential to meeting the petroleum
needs of the nation, Florida and Port St. Joe., As is in-
dicated by the place of tankers in the merchant marine
shipbuilding program, the importance of moving oil by
sea will grow, .not lessen. In short, every precaution
should be taken to prevent oil spills; but;, at the same
time, the tankers, must be permitted to operate.
In conversation with Senator W. E. Bishop last Thurs-
day night, he indicated that the Legislature this year
would still be on a "witch hunt" so far as the' ecology is
concerned and the tough line would prevail. The support
of everyone in Florida will probably be needed to see that
some reasonable rules, are applied to the oil spill liability
in the State of Florida. i
Author James 3Michener explores the tragedy at Kent
State University last year in the March issue of Reader's
Digest.. One doesn't haSe to read very far before he is
convinced that Mr. Miclhener didn't just write the article
"off the top of his head" nor did he express only his own
viewpoint of what happened. The article was thoroughly
documented and facts gathered, presenting a picture to-
tally different from. other accounts published of the con-
frontation on the Ohio, campus. \
Most "bleeding heart" writers have either castigated
'the National Guard or the students of Kent State for the
nightmare which happened, resulting in .death for some
students; injury to others.
While Michener doesn't specifically point a finger,
one gathers the fact, without toomuch trouble, that the
altercation was caused by outside agitataors who 'came
to Kent specifically for' this purpose and by a few of the
graduate teaching assistants at the school. Michener

Roberts, representing the Quar-

club's plans concerning new
bleachers for the football sta-

Roberts said the club already
has plans drawn to construct per-
manent concrete block and pre-
stressed c o n c rete permanent
bleachers for a capacity of over
2,000 seats. "This is just about
double the present capacity on

The bleachers will run 15
rows high between the two 18
yard lines and an additional six
rows between the two 35 yard
Roberts pointed out that every
seat in the bleachers will com-
mand a view of the playing field
since the bottom row of seats
will put spectators seven feet
eye-level above the field. "In the
past the bottom two rows of
bleachers have been useless",
Roberts said, "because they were
too low to see".
Roberts said the bleachers for-
merly on the home side have
been moved across the field and

Joe Frazier sort of turned Cassius Clay into putty
in the championship boxing match Monday night of last
week. The writers all say it was a whing ding of a fight
but even had we known in advance the affair would go the
full 15 rounds and the action would be as exciting as it
was, we would have found it hard to part with $15.00 to
get the chance to see it.
Cassius did a lot of talking before the fight about just
how he was going to mop up the ring floor with Frazier,
but "Smokin' Joe". just kept quiet and put his fist where
Clay's mouth was. Clay, being an objector to serving hi
country in the military didn't have much popular suppoi
behind him, while Frazier, who is a deacon and Sund
School teacher in his church, had support, but not muc
belief that he would win.
Clay didn't just stand around and let Frazier do his
thing. He put one on the champion, too, which should
guarantee an even bigger gate on the return bout. Both
fighters should be able to retire in comfort with the pro- "
ceeds from only these two performances.
I read an article the other day which was reporting
on the increase in home gardening throughout the na- )
tion. Everywhere you turn in Port St. Joe, someone is
tearing up some lawn, built with loving care, and plant-
ing the space in vegetables. 'I even have a few rows in
my back yard. The article said the revival of the home
garden is brought about by the increase in food prices.
That may be so, but it's my thoughts that the author of
the article has never planted a home garden and seen first
hand just how much work and expense goes into those
little plots. The exercise is definitely not what one would
call a money-saving venture.
Gulf County's Legislators, to a man, said there is
just no way they will support higher taxes in the coming
session of the Legislature unless the people vote them on
themselves. This includes every proposal from the Gover-
nor's corporation tax to an increase in the sales tax.
It was interesting to note at the hearing in the Court-
house last Thursday night, that out of 50 people present,
only five raised their hands approving the corporation
tax .. and two (possibly three) of these were Gulf
County Commissioners. We say "possibly three", because
it appeared to us a third raised his hand, but we couldn't
see clearly from where we sat.
Those voting "no" were aware of the fact that any 4
tax proposed in' the state would come out of their pocket.

Facts: (yes, a true experience)
Mr. Doe (looking for a special
kind of paint) went to the Big
Artic conditioned Discount Store.
Being unfamiliar with the off
brand, he started looking for
someone to give the information
he needed. After so long he
rounded up a sales clerk. How-
ever, he was unable to obtain
any helpful information. He was
referred to the manager of the
department. Said manager was
nowhere in sight. After so long,
again, he gave up in disgust.
Not far distant was a local store
handling a product made in his
own state with which he was
more familiar. He received plea-
sant, helpful service promptly.
He was pleased when the mana-
ger offered to shake the paint
and was given a couple of stir-
ring paddles. He was instructed
on exactly how to use the pro-
duct. He figured $1.03 saved,
and went out with a happy feel-
ing. Well, just something to

The Susie Chason Circle of the
First United Methodist Church
met Monday afternoon in the home
of Mrs. Louise Thompson on Palm
Mrs. Stella Farris, circle chair-
man, called the meeting to order
and opened the meeting with a
prayer. Mrs. Susie Chason brought
the devotional using as her scrip-
ture Matthew chapter 11, with
other scripture references, in
keeping with the lesson, "Chris-
tianity and the Church".
Mrs. Eula Pridgeon gave the les-
son in a most impressive way,
stressing Christianity and the
church, stating, "only through a
deep spiritual knowledge and fill-
ed with God's love can the church
reach her full glory in calvary".
Mrs. Farris conducted the busi-
ness session with plans made for
the April activities of the circle.
Mrs. Thompson served refresh-
ments to the nine members pres-
ent. The president of the Woman's
Society of Christian Service, Mrs.
Japet King, was in attendance.
The April meeting will be in the
home of Mrs. Susie Chason, 307
Long Avenue on Monday, April 19.
The devotional chairman brought
her closing thoughts as follows:
"Let .us say we are akin to the
men of Gallilee. We wish to follow
in the path of the man of Calvary.
They were called 'Christians' first
in Antioch then. We are called
'Christians' now, if we take up
our cross daily and follow after
him, using the Holy Bible as our
shield from sin.
"We can only know the direction
of the straight and narrow way,
only if we read His word and with
His guiding hand to pull us from
the gorge and mire we travel in.
"But tak it from me, you can
win. Kneel down and pray; look
up, live, love, laugh and give.
With Quiet LTD-not only one of the strongest, quietest
Fords ever built, it is also the most luxurious.
With Rugged Ford Pickups-Ford's F-100 with Twin-I-
Beam front suspension works like a truck, rides like a car.
Our Ford Team Salesmen want you In a new Ford-the
S right Ford for you. Their approach saves you money.
Meet the Ford Team-we back up our cars. We know
Fords and we'll play ball to keep you happy with yours.
"Then we will hear Him say as
we tune in on Heaven's shore,
'Give your life my child .. I
want nothing more.' "

"We believe that people-to-
people contact-folks alerting
their relatives, neighbors and
friends to cancer's warning sig-
nals and helping to raise fight-
ing funds-is part of the combin-
ation that will increasingly turn
the tide against these dread di-
seases called cancer," declared
Mrs. Sullivan. "The other part is
the dedication and skill of thou-
sands of physicians and research-

"Those who give their time
and talent this year will join
hands with the more than two
million other volunteers in thou-

under the direction of Max Stacey,
has been organized in Mexico
Beach. The crew is planning to dis-
tribute handbills advising all resi-
dents of Mexico Beach of the
crew's activities and asking the co-1
operation of all persons to help in
making Mexico Beach an outstand-
ing area by cleaning up, fixing up,
hauling away old and deteriorating
'objects, refrigerators, junk cars,
and litter from yards and vacant
land. Many persons have volunteer-
ed the use of their trucks, trailers
Mr. Stacey has divided the area
into eight divisions, each under the
supervision of a volunteer. In pass-
ing out the handbills to each resi-
dent, the supervisor will explain
the purpose of the crew's activi-
ties and answer any questions the
citizens may have. A schedule has
been prepared and the first pick-
up of junk and litter will occur
on Saturday, March 20.
Supervisors include Col. Otis

S"Many cancer deaths are need-
less since the chances of a cure
are good with early diagnosis,"
Mrs. Sullivan said. She pointed
out that more than 1,500,000
Americans are alive today who
were cured of cancer.
"We want to wipe out cancer
in your lifetime and it's up to us
to tell everyone we can reach

Durkee Plant Competes For
Both Business And Raw Material
Glidden-Durkee Division's plant
here in Port St. Joe is not' only in
competition with other manufac-
turers of their products in sell-
ing the finished product, but also
in obtaining the raw product, ac-
cording to George Wimberly, plant
manager. Wnimberly told the Rotary
Club Thursday that at present the
demand for tall oil and tall oil
products, manufactured by the firm-
is in good demand.
On the other hand, Wimberly
pointed out that local operations
can proceed only at the rate that
raw product can be obtained. That
raw product is "soap" skimming
from paper mill digester opera-
tions. "We get about 18,000 tons
a year from St. Joe Paper Com-
pany and 38,000 tons from other
paper mills in the South."
Wimberly pointed out that all
tall oil plants were seeking the
"soap" skimmings from Southern
mills becausee Northern woods
don't have the quality naval stores
value as the Southern woods do".
Wimberly said the local plant
operates on a round the clock ba-
sis on a "continuous fractionation
process" and turns out 55,000 tons
