Sharks Snatch State Grid Crown,
Last year, the Sharks were 30-0
losers to Wildwood in the state
football finals. Amniediately af-
ter the game, the players who
would be returning this year ga-
thered in a iflotel room and
vowed to win the championship
Friday night, after 'trying for
the state crown three years in a
row, the Sharks,/put their ducks
in a row and snished Cross City
35-6 to take the championship be-
fore a packed. and partisan sta-
And the win came in typical
Shark fashion.' They stumbled
a bit at the fijst of the game
and Cross City hit them with a
blinding 75 yard run up the
middle by the Bears' big 215
pound Willie Collins, to put the
Bears ahead, 6-0.
But they shouldn't have done
it. The Sharks began to move
slowly, but had their drive stop-
ped by a penalty. Steve Bass
bbomed a punt to the Bear 29.
The Bears worked their way back
to the 40 where 'they found them-
selves with a fourth down and
one foot to gO.
They gambled. And- th ey
shouldn't have done that, either.

then scooped up the loose

on going until he crossed the

After the Sharks broke the ice
with their first score, it was evi-
dent they were going to present
the City with a state football
championship for Christmas. But
for a while there in the first
period, Port St. Joe fans began
to painfully remember the pre-
vious year in Wildwood.
The second period began with
the Sharks kicking off to the,
Bears. On the first play from
scrimmage, Jim Faison intercept-
ed a Cross City pass on the St.
Joe 43 yard line. In nine plays,
the Sharks had again 'pushed
across a score- with Shackleford
driving over from four yards out.
Twice the drive was kept going
with big plays. Steve Bass pulled
in a Whittle pass for 10 yards
.and later, Whittle hit Perry Ad-
kison for 12. Steve Bass' kick for
the extra point was good, giving
the Sharks a 14-6 lead.
Late in the second period, the,
Eears mustered their last drive,

Jaycees Entertain Children At Christmas Party
These children were part of 13 youngsters
in this area who faced a bleak Christmas this
year. The tots were gathered up by the Port St.
Joe Jaycees Saturday and treated to a shopping
tour in the City and later to a party at the St.
James Episcopal Parish House.
The Jaycees finance the project, along with
Christmas baskets for the poor with several pro.
jects during the year. These youngsters were
provided with $12.00 each for their shopping.
Most of them bought clothes with their money.

Skip Christmas This Year?
(The following was an address made to the Port St.
Joe Rotary Club last Thursday by Rev. J. C. Odum, pas-
tor of the Long Avenue Baptist Church. We thought it
appropriate to use this address as our Christmas editorial
Many people in Port St. Joe feel like skipping Christ-
mas this year. These people believe this is the only sen-
sible conclusion under the circumstances, for this has
-been "one of those years". Seemingly nothing has gone
right. Financially and psychologically we are not ready
for Christmas. Let's skip it this year. After all, hasn't
the paper mill, our number one source of income, been on
strike for the last five months of the year?' Maybe three
months or six month later, but not now. Why does Christ-
mas always have to come on December 25 whether we
are ready or not? Let's skip it this year!
This is a universal problem. I sense that, around the
world, many people are struggling with this same prob-
lem. Could we agree, by common consent, to skip Christ-
It seems that we might as well skip Christmas this
year. The heavy hand of circumstances weighs heavily
on all of us. With an inflated economy, the price and
wage freeze, and devaluation of the dollar it just seems
as though Christmas is not for us this year. Can't we
In order to be fair, however, before we decide as to
the kind of Christmas, if any, we can bring ourselves
to observe this year, perhaps we ought to compare our
world with the world at the time of Jesus' birth.
At the time of the birth of Christ crime was on a
rampage and political corruption had come to an all. time
high. There were so many murders and assassinations in
Caesar's palaces, in Herod's palaces, in paths of travel that
the people went armed with daggar or sword and rarely
ventured forth at night. King Herod's way to the throne
was tracked by crime and bloodshed and murder of those
most nearly related to him. One of his. contemporaries
said, "Better be Herod's hog than his son." We are famil-
iar with the New Testament account of the slaughter of the
infants in Bethlehem and vicinity, immediately following
the birth of Christ.
Violence was the accepted pattern of life. Anyone, or
any nation that dared rebel against Rome was promptly

subdued with frightful penalties. There were uprisings
of slaves and minority groups despite the hopelessness of
speaking out against the "establishment". Jerusalem, it-
self, was filled with the bitterness of factions. Poverty
and disease were of such a sort that our "ghetto" dwel-
lers of today would be considered rich and healthy by the
unfortunate of that day. Temple worship was corrupt in
many ways. Places of worship in rivalry to the great
temple were springing up across the land.
From our vantage point as we look in retrospect to
the "fullness of time" when Christ came into the world
must we not conclude that God initiated Christmas, not in
spite of the sorrow and want and guilt and cruelty of that
world, but because of it? Perhaps we need Christmas in
1971 as we have never needed it before. But what kind
of Christmas can we endure, and what kind might lift
us out df our despondency?
Instead of skipping Christmas we need to skip the
mirage of Christmas. We need to skip the delusion of
Christmas. The generations--old optical illusion of scores
of cards, piles of gifts, the orgy of shopping, the drug-
ging effects of lights and pageantry, rushing crowds,
and the waste of substance-this mirage we need to skip.
We need to find the true oasis of Christmas right in
the middle of what seems to us an unbroken desert of
life. Because circumstances are like they are let us perish
the thought of skipping Christmas.
A true Christmas ought not drain us of vitality and
integrity, it ought not add to our sense of hypocrisy. If
the true Christmas is a reminder of the birth of the Sav-
iour, then we need that Christmas sorely. :Dare we skip

ous by Bing Crosby, "I'm Dreaming of A Right Christmas."

to be. Years ago it took a million
dollars to be known as a million-
aire. But now, in South Florida,
you can be a millionaire-or at
least act like one-merely thru
joining a group who learned
there is strength, and even
wealth, in numbers.
The Miami Millionaires Club,
a non-profit fraternal organiza-
tion of businessmen, gives its
members the privilege of facili-
ties and events usually reserved
for the very wealthy. And a club-
house on North Miami Beach will
be constructed by the so-called
millionaires in 1972.
According to the club presi-
dent, Derrick Van Brode, IV,
who has the name to go with
the Millionaires Club, "We liked
the idea of driving around in a
Rolls Royce, traveling to exotic
places, cruising aboard luxury
liners, dining at the most expen-
sive restaurants and generally
having an expensive ball.
"None of us could individually
afford it," Van Brode explains,
"so we formed the Miami Mil-
lionaires Club. We bought a
Rolls, a yacht, took advantage

Social Security Report
If you have received at least one
social security check in 1971 and
expect to earn over $1680 by the
end of the year, you must file an
annual report with the Social se-
curity Administration by Monday,
April 17, 1972, according to David
Robinson, Social Security Field Re-
presentative for Gulf County. Cau-
tion: Filing a tax return with In-
ternal Revenue Service does not
fulfill this reporting requirement.
In order to complete this report,
you must have the following infor-
mation: (1) Total earnings as an
employee and the months you did
not earn over $140.00; (2) If self-
employed, you must furnish your
gross earnings, net earnings, and
the months you were not active in
If you have not received an an-
nual report form from social se-
curity by the middle of March 1972,
be sure to get in touch with your
local social security office. The of-
fice for this area is located at 1316

called successful businessmen
who have developed a program
that gives them the opportunity
of enjoying a style of life they
might otherwise miss out on.

club back in 1969, Van Brode
says he has been beseiged by re-
quests for memberships. After
three years of developing the
concept of the club, the Miami

REV. J. C. ODUM, Pastor
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Well, I blew it! Any expectations I might have had
for getting a nice Christmas gift from Frenchie went right
out the window last week. The sad part of it is, there's
nothing I can do about it now.
I was down here at the plant Tuesday night, a week
ago, just after all the stores had closed down town.
'Number three son, Alford had just finished making the
first press run of the week and was getting ready to go
home. I was laying out an ad for somebody and Alford
sidled up to me and asked, "What did you buy your wife
I wouldn't trade my wife off for another one, but nei-
ther do I go out and buy her a present every day, so I
replied, "I didn't buy her anything why?"
"Well, you know today's her birthday", he shot back.
As grandson, Richard, says, "Mercy, mercy" I
had forgotten all about it.
I went home late that night. But, even though I
was late, Frenchie had a; hot supper on the table and
kept hovering around, wanting to know if there was any-
thing else I wanted to eat. Finally, I had to confess,
"Old girl", I said, "I know you are getting on up into years
and I didn't want to. remind you of it, so I forgot to buy
you a birthday present". That word "forgot" got me into
trouble and shot down any efforts toward diplomacy.
That "old girl" remark didn't help much either.
I think that's why I had to settle for a bowl of cereal
for breakfast the next morning. That bowl of cereal also
told me I can't look for much under the Christmas tree
In spite of not expecting anything for Christmas, ev-
erything is all ready at our house.
I got busy last Sunday and put up the Christmas tree
with the help of two "Crissum Tree" experts, aged two
We went outside to get the tree put up into the stand
along with Richard and Steven, the two grandson experts.
Richard looked at the tree and began to worry that it
wouldn't go through the door into the house. I assured
him we'd get it in even if we had to knock down the wall
to the den. They were all business and just itching to help
get the tree up. Richard held the tree while I sawed the
bottom off straight and both helped me carry it into the
garage where we were going to put it in the stand.
About the time I put it in the stand, Richard (the
oldest "Crissum Tree" expert) piped up with, "It's crook-
ed, Pataw". Sure enough, it was.
Where I really got the help, thought, was in putting
on the decorations.
Tell me, if you will, how two and three year old
boys have already learned how to put the hangers on bulbs
and hang them on the tree? They hung the entire three
dozen bulbs on about a half dozen limbs, but they got
Steven was industrially working at some of the dec-
orations over in a corner when I told Richard, "We have
a bag of chocolate balls to hang now. Go get them."
Richard went over to Steven and turned around to
me and said, "Stebo ate 'em up!" Sure enough, Steven
was unwrapping the chocolate balls and stuffing them
in his mouth as hard as he could go.
I should have known better than to trust Steven with
that job. Even though he was anxious to get the "Crissum
Tree" up he's a candyholic. He can't help it, he's just
warped that way. As a matter of fact, I've been think-
ing about enrolling him in Candyholics Anonymous.
Any how, we got the tree up, minus the chocolate
balls, and now we're ready to wish each and every one of
you a Merry Christmas!

their own '40. -A hard, charge by
the Sharks and Steve Bass and
Jim Faison blocked the punt.
Again Archie Shackleford was in
the neighborhood an' again hie
grabbed up the ball and ran for
the 25 yard touchdown. Bass
kicked his third straight extra
point to give the Sharks a 21-6.
Now the Bears began to get
desperate. Starting on their own
24 after the kickoff, big Willie
Collins took the hand-off and
wound up to pass. He connect-
ed with Norman Pughsley on
the Shark 40 and it looked like
the Bears were going to threa-
On the very next play Steve
Atchison reached for a Bear pass
but it glanced off his fingers in-
to the hands of Perry Adkison on
the Shark 23. The Sharks be-
gan to move on running plays
with Mike White, Shackleford,
and Jim Faison up the middle.
Shackleford theh ripped off a
17 yard gain only to have it nul-
lified by a clipping penalty
which put the Slarks in a hole.
The Sharks bounced right back
though and Perry Adkison un-
lokded a 30 yard toss to Steve
Atchison for the score, but an-
other' penalty nullified the play
and the Sharks had to give up
Late in the third period, At-
chison picked off his 13th inter-
ception of the year for a new
school record, on the 50 yard
line. Jim Faison rambled to the
36 behind excellent blocking. A
personal foul moved the Sharks
to the 22 and a first down. As
the fourth period began Steve
Bass decided to run a little at
fullback .,and drove over from
the two yard line for the score,
then kicked the extra point.
The Sharks last score came
with Perl-y Adkison and Steve
Atchison repeating their aerial
antics Qf0. the third, period.. At-
chison hailed in the 30 yard pass
with twd Bears on his back and
fell over into the end zone. Bass
kicked the extra point to give
the Sharks their 35-6. win and
their first football state cham-
pionship. The last scoring play
capped, off a fine 24 yard run by
Faison, who was the leading
ground gainer of the night with
70 yards to his credit. Shackle-

ground gainer' had 59 yards to
go with his two long runs on
