over the project, since it seem-..

presented to -fill out- and more
criteria to be met stipulated.
150 Turn Out
Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson,
one of 15 Democratic hopefuls
,on Florida's March primary bal-
lot, came to Port St. Joe last
Wednesday evening and met
with about 150 supporters in
front of the Citi Hall on a blus-
teiy and rainy evening.]
Jackson gave only a short ad-
dress in which he hit mostly at
the rising crime rate and favor-
ed mnre attention to be given
to the suppression and. prevep-.
tion of crime in the nation. He
spoke briefly on the Vietnam is-
sue sticking by his previous po-
sition of a withdrawal from the
nation without further endanger-
ing their chance for freedom.

Strike Negotiations Still Underway
Negotiations are still in pro-
gress today in the five-month-
old strike against St. Joe Paper
Company, as the result of talks
which opened last Wednesday.
In Wednesday's session of last
week, St. Joe Paper offered a
new contract to the unions. On
Thursday, the unions presented
requests for changes in the new
set of rules.
A spokesman for the company
said they now have the union
requests under advisement and
that the two- parties will prob-
ably get back together again ei-
ther the first or the middle of
Both sides appear to be cau-

Are the talks now under way by the St. Joe Paper
Company and their three unions cause for hope? In
all these five months of crippling strike, the union group
has remained at one end of Reid Avenue while the Paper
Company officials remained at the other end. As long as
the two didn't come together, there was no hope at all
for a settlement.
With the .renewal of talks last week, we have seen
what appears to be the first serious attempt at coming to
In -previous talk sessions, which rarely lasted for
more 'than one meeting, we have always had the word be-
fore the day was over that no agreement could be reach-
ed. Such wasn't the case this time. Offers were made;
counser-proposals were drawn up and the dickering is still
in process which isa good, healthy sign.
In 35 years of operation, there has never been a dis-
,agreement which company and unions could not get toge-
ther in short order. But in every instance, there was
talks going on and not this present practice of maintaining
separate camps- only six blocks apart which might as well
be six niles.
Everyone in this area who has been affected sorely
by this strike through no fault of their own, have been
deploring the lack of conversation between the two par-
ties involved. Now, we are all breathing a little easier
now that -we see at least a move being made to settle this
thing. We are all painfully aware of the fact that noth-
ing can be accomplished by ignoring one another. The
talking leads us to believe that some progress is being
made on the basis of past experience when eyeball to
eyeball negotiations between St. Joe Paper and its unions
has always resulted in an agreement with which both
parties could live.
We know that some company officials have laid all
the blame at the feet of the unions and some union mem-
bers have likewise laid all blame for prolonging the strike
on the company. The truth is, a settlement must be
reached which will benefit both parties for anybody to
reap any benefits at all.
Remove Your Keys
New traffic laws passed by the Legislature and made
applicable to all municipalities in the state make it im-
perative that the motorist beware of his everyday driving
habits in the future. There has always been a need for
careful driving and heeding traffic safety codes and driv-
ing aids. The new laws, however/ cover a much wider
scope and things we normally did everyday in our auto-
mobiles are now against the law.
For instance, it's now against the law to leave your
cai without* removing the keys. .This, of course, has al-
ways ben a good practice in order to discourage theft.
in a. small town like Port St. Joe, however, most people
probably leave the keys in their car most of the time.
Some probably never remove them.
We understand in the past some insurance companies
. have.-been reluctant to py off theft, claims where the
keys Were left in' the car. Now, under th6 new law, the
owner himself, faces charges, in the case of a theft because
he left his keys in the vehicle.

It's also against the law now to leave your car with-
out engaging the parking brake. In the flatlands such
as Port St. Joe, cars are probably bought, worn out and
junked without the parking brake ever being used. But,
nevertheless, one must apply the parking brake now or
be in violation of the law.
Other items in the new law include the rule that front
wheels must be turned toward the curb. when the car is
parked, and many other items not yet available to local
police or motorists in publication form. You can be sure
the new laws will be made public in the near future and
it is the duty and responsibility of motorists to become
acquainted with them.
Most of these new rules make sense, but they go
against what we normally do so there will be complaints.
There will be more complaints when soai motorist is cited
for leaving his keys in his car. The 'cry would probably
be louder, however, if the car was stolen because the keys
were left in the ignition.

Hal Boyle said in his column the other day he could
tell which homes had no conversation going to spice up
life around the house. These were the homes with a towel
marked 'his' and a towel marked 'hers' hanging in the
In a way he's right, you know. One of the surest
ways to spice up the conversation around our house is
not to find a towel in the bathroom marked 'his', 'hers',
'Biltmore Hotel' or 'Pillsbury Flour' namely no towel
at all. The kids are the worst ones-to star.up,-these con-
versations, too. They are usually the cause of there being
no towels, you know. They'll get in the shower, get
all' scrubbed off aid start searching for the towel
that isn't there. Then the conversation starts, "Momma,
bring me a towel".
As long as there is a towel marked 'his', 'hers' or
just a plain, old ordinary towel, they dry off and keep *
their mouth shut. no conversation.
As long as Boyle is thinking up causes for no conver-
sation around the house, I just sat down and thought up
a cause FOR conversation.
ielp Nothing starts a conversation at our house more
than a bowl of corn flakes for supper. It's about the
most popular thing around our house when I come home
after dark, pooped, hungry and with my Right Guard left,
to sit down to a bowl of corn flakes. It doesn't happen
often, since apparently my family doesn't like to con-
verse too much especially about corn flakes for sup-
for Friday, while I was thinking of that supper cereal
will bit, I sat down to dinner at the Hotel for the merchants
wn, meeting and Jimmy Costin and Charles Brock started a
ting learned conversation about the values and deficits of cer-
23. eal. Charlie must get a lot of cereal at home because he
aent seemed to be the leading authority on what was edible and
Fish what wasn't. He has conned himself into thinking that
the certain types of cereal are good. Bernard Pridgeon was
okey another one, because he added the gem, "there's nothing
west like a bowl or raisin bran and Special K, mixed, for break-
iase fast!" He said he ate this conglomeration each and every
ide. Without a whole lot of trouble I can think of a lot
ting of things better than a bowl of cereal even though I have
and been known to eat it on occasion.
Feb- I think I would die from surprise if we were to get
sea- a well balanced pet at. our house. We have the Siamese
west cat which lies on the television with her tail dangling in
and front of the most interesting part on the screen; a poo-
rkey die that likes potato chips and pop corn (though I will ad-
of mit that he is smart enough to know everyone in the fam-
ring ily by name).
ring Now the kids have a pet bantam rooster in the back
)rth yard that doesn't know when to crow. Ted Cannon com-
'ing plained the other day that the crazy rooster made him
)rth late for work. He crowed at 7:00 A.M. for awhile, then
here of late he has started crowing at 7:15, 7:20, 7:30
rn-. and even occasionally at 7:00. Ted said, "I like to hear
ess that little rooster crow, but how about "setting" him to
it the correct time so I won't run late".
lls Now the question, "how do you set a crazy rooster?"
Florida Power "Owned" By Over 20000 Shareholders
Question: Who owns Florida Power Corporation?
Answer: Florida Power is owned by 21,073 share-
holders, 4,864 of whom live in Florida. In
addition, millions of other persons in Flor-
ida and throughout the nation have an In-
direct financial Interest in the company due
to investments made by insurance compa-
nies, mutual savings banks and pension
funds. No one individual or institution owns
More than 3% of the company's stock.
Question: Does Florida. Power repair appliances?
Answer: No. Look in the yellow pages of your phone
book for a list of dealers or factory service
branches for the brand of appliance you
Question: Do I need a 230-volt dryer or will a 115-volt
model do just as well?
Answer: The 115-volt dryer will dry your clothes just
as well but will take more than twice as
long. The operating costs are about the
same for both.
Question: Can you give me some information on how
to wrap foods for the freezer? Why do they-
have to be specially wrapped?.
Answer: Frozen foods should be specially wrapped
to keep in moisture. Improperly wrapped
foods will develop "freezer burn," and while
this will not hurt you, it does affect the taste
of the foods. Ask at our local office for a
copy of our free freezer booklet.
Question: If I am on Florida Power's Equal Payment
Plan, is my electric meter read once a
Answer: Yes. Even though your monthly payments
are the same,-we read your meter each
month and indicate on your bill the differ-
ence between the monthly payment and the
amount you have actually used.

Core Recalls Last
Year's News Items
George Y. Core presented an un-
usual and interesting program to
the Port St. Joe Rotary Club last
Thursday. Core took issues of The
Star for' each week of last year
and recapped the important news
events in Gulf County for 1971.
Core used the headlines of stor-
ies to give a history of the county
of last year from leading the state
in sales tax collections in percent-
age of increase the first of the
year to being the only county in
the state to lose collections during
the last year in the month. The
stories included the notices of di-
rect dial coming to Port St. Joe;
the census report of 10,096 citi-
ball stadium, discontinuing of tele-
graph service, Pitts and Lee back
in the news, registration of 18-
21 year-olds to vote, the paper
company strike, Basic's installation
of an anti-pollution precipitator,
first presidential candidate to visit
here, state football championship
and many other items.
The Rotarians voted the St. Joe
Paper Company strike as the big-
gest story of the year on a negative
side and financing of the St. Jo-
seph's Bay Country Club as the
biggest story on the positive side.
Guest of the club was Billy Mil-
ton of Marianna.

A new definition is also made of

a household under 60 years of age
must be related by blood, affinity

James added that a new benefit
for the elderly disabled is the pro-
vision allowing them to purchase
prepared meals delivered by a non-
profit meal delivery service.
Presently, Florida has food
,stamp programs operating. in. 20
counties with the remaining 47
counties already designated by FNS
for food stamps. James explained
that .the implementation of the
programs in these counties has
been scheduled between now and
May 1, 1972.
In November, 175,775 needy peo-
ple in the 20 Florida counties were
issued $4.2 million in food coupons.
Of this amount, more than $3 mil-
lion was in free bonus stamps,
given by the USDA to help needy
families to buy more food.
