THIRTY-FIFTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1972 NUMBER 38
Big Day Saturday Will Honor State Champions
It isn't very often that a high school
wins both the football and basketball state
championships. As a matter of fact, it has
happened only once and Port St. Joe's high
school athletes are the ones who pulled it off.
' ""' In order to celebrate this historic hap-
jening, the entire Port St. Joe area will honor
its champions Saturday morning with a huge
city-wide celebration in downtown Port St. Joe.
The idea for- the "Championship Day"
celebration was born in a meeting of the Port
St. Joe Retail Merchants Association, who
quickly enlisted the help of other civic organi-
zations and service groups in the City to plan
for a big day of celebration before school was
out and the students scattered on vacationand
holding down summer jobs.
All civic clubs and several firms and
private citizens have donated over $1500.00 to
put on a giant free chicken barbecue dinner
for everyone who will come Saturday morning
to honor the state champions. Festivities
will begin: about 11:00 A.M. in downtown Porti
St. Joe with 'the chicken barbecue dinner being
served at 12:00 noon.
Charles Wall, who is in charge of the
cooking operation, said barbecuing of the chick-
en will begin at about 3:00 A.M. Saturday, with
a crew of volunteer workers, who- are prepar-
ing dinner for 3,000 people. They want to be
sure they have enough food for everyone who
will show up forthe affair.
Several dignitaries will be on hand to
.greet the people, along with the members of
the two teams being feted. Representative
Wvilliam J. Rish says he has commitments from
Senator Dempsey Barron and Senator W. E.
Bishop and tentative commitments from sev-
eral others. There will be no speaking by poli-
ticians, according to Rish.
The barbecue will be served on the va-
cant lot at the corner of Reid Avenue and fifth
Street next to the City Hall.
The Sharks have made a name for Port
St. Joe throughout the state as the only school '
ever to win both football and basketball cham-
pionships in one year. The civic clubs of Port
St., Joe think it fitting that they offer this spe-
cial "Championship Day" in recognition of their
feat and so everyone will have an opportunity
to congratulate them for their achievement.
Port St. Joe's 1927 basketball team travelled to and
from its games in this old Model "T" Ford school bus.

In a short press conference,
Askew was frank to say there

The money, he said, was being

The Governor also said Gulf
County could expect little fed-
eral program aid because of its
wage scale. "Gulf Cpunty has
the largest per capital income
of any small county in Florida
and the bulk of federal funds
goes to help poor counties get
on their feet", he said.
The reception was hosted by

Man of His Word
Governor Reubin Askew took what has been labeled
"a tour through his native Northwest Florida to mend
fences" last week and came through Port St. Joe Friday
afternoon on his trip. The daily press reported on some
of the Governor's itinerary and reported him as drawing
his lumps in many of the Northwest Florida communities.
Mainly this was because of the Governor's "liberal" atti-
tude: The "crackers" in this part of the State are strictly
conservative even to the point of voting for a Republi-
can is almost like God having tea with the devil.
can is lamost like God having tea with the devil.
While the Governor drew criticism in many commun-
ities, he was greeted with dignity 'and warmth in Gulf
County, even though, by and large, Gulf County agrees
with the rest of Northwest Florida the Governor is too
liberal. He is still Governor of the State of Florida, how-
ever and he is due the respect which goes with the highest
office in the State. He received this respect in our county.
We didn't vote for Governor Askew, but to give him
his due, he said the same things right here in Gulf County
he says in the'remainder of the State. Most visiting poli-
ticians are ever mindful of the vote and are prone to say
what they know the populace wants to hear. /
The Governor flatly stated that Gulf County can't
expect too much in the way of State and Government aid
toward attracting growth and public works. "You are
too affluent", he said, pointing out that Gulf County has
the highest per capital income of any small county in North
Florida. This, of course, is because of our high industrial-
ization and the tourism attracted by the beach, the Dead
Lakes and St. Joseph State Park.
He made no bones about the fact that Gulf County
couldn't expect too much in the way of road work during
the next year or two because the road money was being
spent elsewhere on what is presumably more pressing pro-
jects. He could just as easily have done like so many
Governors and promised miles of paving and then waited
a year or two to perform.
It was interesting to read concerning his visit to
Blountstown where a road of local interest was announced
for paving. One of the residents remarked that Askew
was one of the few Governors which hadn't promised the
road, but was the only one to begin construction.
Askew's little jaunt proved one thing whether or
not you agree with what the Governor says, he is a man
of word. That's unique in this day and time.
Port St. Joe ends another year of school with gradua-
tion next Tuesday night. After a year of constant turmoil
the year before, this year moved along rather smoothly
until the last two weeks of school when the dam broke,
the fist flew and the school plant was shut down for two
days before being resumed on a piece-meal basis.
Almost everywhere we've been, we have heard criti-
cism of the School Board for closing down the schools.
"They ought to continue out the year as scheduled" seems
to be the theme of about three-fourths of the people with
whom we have talked.
We agree the school year should have been finished,
but on the other hand, we were not present at the trouble
last week and couldn't view its intensity nor see first-hand
the feelings of the students. We do agree that some-
thing had to be done and fast. Whether or not the School
Board did the right thing can only be judged by the future..
Whether or not they made the right move, it is to their
credit that they took .definite action. We have gone too
long just rocking along thinking the situation will cure

Port St. Joe has been very fortunate in that it has
faced little trouble in comparison with other schools. It
still isn't acceptable to ninety percent of our population-
black and white-that we should have any trouble at all,
We fall in that ninety percent.
We hope that between now and the next school year,
the School Board will have time to sit down and study
the situation out and come up with 'a plan of action for
any future trouble we might have and come up with a
solution that will be effective in keeping high feelings in
check and still keep the school doors open. When you
stop to think about it, that's a pretty large order.
Kids can't learn in' an explosive atmosphere. We are
fortunate that the end of school was, for all practical pur-
poses, at an end before the latest trouble erupted. We feel
that a well-placed belt at home on the behind of those
involved in the fight-black and white-right or wrong-
will do more than any School Board action in the future
to curb such unsavory incidents.

I have to publicly apologize to my preacher, J. C.
Odum. I said about a month ago, I didn't bleieve he could
preach a 10 minute sermon. Sunday, in our anniversary
program at the Long Avenue Baptist Church he said what
he had to say-and managed to step on everyone's toes
while doing it-in at little under five minutes. That's
quite an accomplishment for a Baptist preacher.
I wish I was graduating with the Port St. Joe High
School seniors this year. Just think, of the opportunity
they have facing them. I don't necessarily regret the past
27 years since I graduated from High School, but the
past 27 years-as good as they have been-are almost
archaic compared to what lies ahead during the next 27.
The Seniors are going to have to work, that's for
sure. When you look at the progress made during the
nast 30 years, our generation worked. They made a pretty
fair start at a good wdrld except forthe fact that some-
how or other we managed to raise uu a few warped people
who figure the world owes them a living. We have sur-
vived and progressed despite John Dewey's "progressive
education" took hold of our public education system in
the 1.930's and when the concept that man is the helpless

Any society that can survive and remain healthy de-
spite a millstone like that around its neck is a pretty heal-
The folly of this philosophy is- beginning to stare
Americans in the face and should be a vital factor in the
graduating seniors of today making an even greater life
for our people.
President Nixon is now in Russia, doing a little Yan-
kee horse trading with the Russians. Some of our people
'Iok on th- trip as the beginning of better relations with
Moscow while others feel the President will get the wrong
end of any deals cooked up.
Out of the China trip, the nation revived or adopted
a taste for 100-year-old eggs, Chinese dishes and acupunc-
t"-e. Now you can look for cabbage soup and cooked
fish heads to become the culinary craze of the apple pie,
steak and potatoes set.
John Cbnnoley resigned from his post in the cabinet
and the speculation has been in the papers every day about
what the future holds for the genial Texan. Will he be
Nixon's choice for the vice presidency? Will he go to an-
other cabinet post? Or, will he carry out his reason of
resigning so he can actively work for Nixon's re-election?
Just before Connoley's resignation, he threw a big
barbecue on his Texas ranch, inviting a host of the nation's
dignitaries to lunch with Texas titans. From where we sit,
we have a sneaking feeling Connoley's barbecue was
so tasty, Nixon has talked him into resigning and the

during the coming months and
years and posed the question,

Anderson said both iPort St.

beyond being content to be "bed-

There are "half-way" houses
for many sicknesses in our socie-

house in its program to change
our capitalistic system. Populism
is its, name, but socialism is its
The word Populism pops up

Half Way House" for Socialism,
So, what does it mean? The
electorate should know. 'I don't
and that worried me. Now, I do
and THAT worries me!'
According to my library re-
search, the original party of the
Populists 'the People's Party' was
born of depression in 1891. It
was a coalition of farmers who
had been hard-hit by a series of
crop failures, and labor, which
was being exploited by the big
corporations. The farmers hated
'the eastern banks for foreclosing
on their farms, and labor hated
business for various abuses ip-
cluding low wages, bad working
conditions and unemployment.'
Having lost faith in existing
parties, these groups formed
their own party to "break
the hold of monopoly capitalism
over the Nation's economic life."
The platform called for free coin-
age of silver, and a flexible cur-
r e n c y system controlled b y
government rather than banks,
a graduated income tax "to soak
the rich", and public ownership
The platform called for an end
of government by special inter-
ests, and demanded the return of
political power to the "plain peo-
Although defeated in the elec-
tion of 1892, the Populists'
strength was such that, in 1896,
the Democrats incorporated
most Populist proposals in their
platform. This made the People's
Party unnecessary,- and it faded
Today, the excuse of 1892 for
anti-business-ism no longer exist.
The average family of "plain
people" is doing ,quite well. In
mm n0 == r mw -
fact, it may own its own home,
two cars and a boat. And it takes
vacations, to the shores, to the
mountains and to Disney World.
We have a flexible currency
system controlled by government
rather than by banks, a graduat-
ed income tax, and government
regulation of investor-owned util-
ities. We do not have a depres-
sion, and working people have
an eight-hour day, fringe bene-
fits, and are exploited by no one.
We DO have government in-
fluenced by special interests.
But among the most powerful
special interests are farm and la-
bor groups, and other elements
of the "plain people." And their
lobbyists exert just as much
pressure groups on government
as do the corporations. In fact,
many elements of government
itself are pressure groups. And
they lobby for their own inter-
So why a rebirth of the semi-
socialist philosophy, Populism?
Well, most people aren't rich,
most aren't majority stockhold-
ers, and most dislike utility bills.
Most people are employees rat-
her than employers, and most
are moved by appeals to emotion
and self-benefit more readily
than by appeals to reason, ob-
jectivity and morality.
We have become a people
wherein the voting majority
seems placated only by regular
"injections" of something-paid-
for-by-someone-else welfare sta-
tism. Our dependence on this
"drug" makes acceptable the
"harder stuff" Populism and So-
