A Fine Effort
There was a lot ,of people who did a lot of work on
Port St. Joe's Christmas Parade this year. Their work
was evident in the fine floats entered in the parade and
the units entered, even though they didn't compete for
the cash prizes being offered.
It was especially gratifying to see the large number
of church-related entries in this time of year when our
emphasis should be placed on the true spirit of Christmas
-the birthday of the Lord.
It's true the annual parade has a commercial flavor
since it comes at what is cQmmonly thought to be the be-
ginning of the gift-buying'season. However, we can see
nothing wrong with the emphasis on gift-buying if we
don't put our full attention on this aspect of the favorite
of holidays and forget the "holy" that goes along with
the Christmas "holiday".
We're not well versed enough in psychology to kno
whether it is the times or not which prompted the man
religious themes used by float builders this year, but
was comforting to see the emphasis of attention place
where it should properly be.,
We've always thought a lot of this town and its pe(
ple. We think they're both first class.. The effort pi
forth at a time when enthusiasm is not at its greater
around here, in order to produce a parade of festive al
pearance was indicative of their community spirit. TI
attention of our people being placed in the proper dire
tion complimented these efforts and reaffirms our co]
tention that Port St. Joe will do the right thing at th
right time. You can depend on it.
It's right amusing to read about the hurt expression
of India because of the American delegation to the United
Nations blaming them for starting the fighting between
India a*id Pakistan. India feels is it justified in attacking
Pakistan to "liberate" the Kashmirs in East Pakistan.
This brings to mind the refusal of India to see that
the United,States was only trying to protect the freedom
of the South Vietnamese in that unfortunate war. For
years, India's representatives in the UN has clucked its
tongue at the U. S. for its intervention in the Vietnam
war. Now the shoe is on the other foot and India can't
understand why it should pinch so much.
Still, one can't be happy over the Indian situation.
This sprawling nation-the world's second most popu-
lous-has had nothing but suffering for its people in all
of recorded history. Its people live in untold misery. We
read where many Indians are born, live to adulthood and
die, never having known what it was like not to feel hun-
ger during one single day in their entire life.
As things now appear, Russia is siding with India and
Clayton Fritchy, the columnist, who writes with a left
handed pen, and who has no love for President Nixon,
last week chided AFL-CIO president George Meany for
his treatment of the President recently in Miami Beach.
Fritchey agreed with Meany in disagreeing with the
President's wage and price controls, but he thought the
union president could have made more points if he had
disagreed in a different manner. Fritchie said Meany's
maneuver only infuriated the American people many
members of his unions included.
Seldom do we go along with Fritchie, but he had one
statement in his article which causes us alarm and should
,alert every American both working men and management.

Decline Shown In

Florida's major taxes have yield-
ed $399.2 million in revenue thru
October of this year, generally
marking an upswing from collec-
tions during the same period last
year, Comptroller Fred 0. (Bud)
Dickinson reported this week.
Dickinson noted the intangible

months of the fiscal year, up a
y whopping 79 per cent to $6.1 mil-

rate to increased collection efforts.

lected since the beginning of the

The gasoline tax yielded $20.4
million in October, a growth of
almost 19 per cent from the same
period in 1970. This brought to
$89.4 million the total from this
tax last year.
Other taxes showing higher re-
S, turns during the period include

According to the old calendar on the wall, it has now
arrived at the point where it is only 16 days until Christ-
mas. Knocking off the Sundays, that leaves 14 shopping
days to get it all done.
I haven't done my shopping yet. I'm one of those
guys who either gets it done in July or waits until the last
minute. This year, I have waited until the last minute.
One advantage of waiting until the last minute is that the
selection has usually narrowed down and makes it easier
to make up my mind about what to buy.
I don't know about you, but I'm a notoriously bad
gift buyer. I don't mind buying them, if I have the money;
but selecting the proper thing to give is not one of my
strong points. Some people have a knack of finding both
unusual and useful gifts gifts that are useful to a per-
son, but which he would never think to buy. I envy this
type person. I'm the "buy a pair of sox, a shirt or a tie" %
type gift shopper.
If a fellow was waiting on cold weather for it to "seem
like Christmas", he had his wish last week end espec-
ially if he went to Bonifay to the football game Friday
night. The cold up there would have made the Minne-
sota Vikings put on their coats.
Some columnist was writing the other day that or-
ganized labor was against President Nixon going to China
for fear that the visit would open up trade agreements for
merchandise made in China by slave labor and consequent-
ly sold in the United States for cheap prices, which would
threaten jobs in this country due to being undersold on
certain items and causing a lag in production.
One thing is for sure, if union members and other
good Americans considered quality when they bought and
also the threat to American manufacturers', he would buy
American first, and any trade agreements the President
entered into would be only a gesture on paper and no
threat to American jobs-union organized or otherwise.
I frankly cannot see how Americans, who enjoy the
highest living standard on earth; who achieved that stand-
ard with high wages and high productivity; can threaten
their position by purchasing merchandise which threatens
their standard of living. Here at The Star, we buy Ameri-
can, even if it happens to cost a little more.
Just thought we'd toss that out here at the Christmas
season when more buying goes on than at any other time
of the year.-
My preacher, J. C. Odum was reared in Eustis and
played football there back in the asafetida days. To prove
it, he brought by a team picture Saturday morning when
it was learned Port St. Joe would be playing Eustis in
the second round of the play-offs.
He pointed to a bushy-headed youngster and proudly
exclaimed, "That's me, pulling guard". It couldn't have
been, though. Anybody as bald as he had to be born that

Do you believe the beautiful little city of Port St.

What about a new and modern marina? What about

we're plodding and waiting for the dark cloud of economic
stalemate to pass (it surely will) is it not an opportune
time for someone, or someones, to do some creative think-

(Any time Bob ... any time.
Reader Thinks We
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
In your editorial column in
the December 2nd issue of the
"Star" you asked the questions
"How did y'ou like the football
games on Thanksgiving Day" and
wasn't htat Nebraska-Oklahoma
game a dozie"? Well, I enjoyed
watching the games very much,
and I thought the Nebraska-Ok-
Slahoma game was a "doozie" (as
ybu put it). It was a well-played
game between two excellent
Some of your remaining com-
ments regarding Alabama's foot-
ball team, and "Bear" Bryant
were, I thought, in very poor
It never ceases to amaze me
why some people hate a "win-
ner". Regarding the Alabama-
Auburn game, you point out
that Alabama "took all the con-
test out of the game". That's
true, the reason being that Ala-
bama was a superior football
team in every phase of the game.
I would like 'to point out to you
that "Bear" Bryant and his Ala-
bama football team are "Win-
- You further state that, Bryant'
had someone "snitch his lucky
hat after the game was over so
he would have a good excuse for
what Nebraska is getting ready
to do to Alabama" in the Orange
Bowl. What nonsense!, _
As for Bear's '"lucky" hat-
hell get a new one. Let me tell
you something about "luck" and
football. Nothing happens by. ac-
cident. You don't find "luck" in
football games-you MAKE your
"luck". Therein, sir, is a part of
the secret of "Bear" Bryant's
What particularly irritated me
about your comments was that
there was not even the slightest
sign of a complimentary note re-
garding Alabama of their coach
-only derogatory inferences af-
ter a victory over a fine Auburn
You apparently think little of
Paul "Bear" Bryant-and yet
here is a successful college foot-
ball coach, a leader in U.S. ath-
letics, a man who is strong, com-
plex, almost ridiculously 'senti-
mental, intelligent, loyal, brave,
humble,' confident, demanding
and moody--yes, Bryant the foot-
ball coach is quite a man, in my
opinion. He is a coach who tea-
ches his players to love the game
and to play like the champions
they are. You'll find that if you
watch closely any Alabama play-
er who is knocked down a hun-
dred times on that football field
will get up a hundred times and
play that much harder. In addi-
tion, the word "LOSE" is not
even in this team's dictionary.

Watch closely New Year's
night, Mr. Ramsey. I don't know
who will win the game, but I do
know this. The fine University
of Nebraska football team will
be entertained with 60 minutes
of hadr-hitting opposition-that
you may depend on. It is also
quite likely you may see a new
national champion emerge from
this game-a team that has play-
ed the toughest schedule in the
nation this year-and their
coach, Paul William Bryant-

P.S.-Hey, out there, Billy
Barlow-do you -concur?
(Whoa, Whoa, htere, Don!-
I happen to write that column
evbry week for fun. Seldom is
there a serious note found
thbre. I happen to agree with
you about Alabama and the big
"Bear" althought I am still
skeptical about the claim he can
walk on water).
Of course, I brought this on
myself. I know better than to
poke fun at a man's wife, his
hound dog or his football team,
but I did it anyhow.
I came from Oklahoma, and,
using your reasoning for defend-
ing Alabama I mnust assume that
any team which can whip Okla-
homa can whip any other team
in the world. So, get out your
crying towel New Year's day,
and we will cry together-along
with the "Bear". -Ed.)
