WD a Blacks Claim Harassment


The Gulf County School
Board had a delegation from
the black community of.We-
wahitchka at. their meeting
S Tuesday morning, complain-
ing about some of the treat-
ment given to their children
Sby several personnel of the
Wewahitchka High School.


Filing the complaint were
Bryant Hand, who acted as
S spokesman, Linda Hand, Bet-
ty Hand, Billie Hand and
Colbert Williams.
Hand said he was concerned


over the treatment of the
black students in Wewahitch-
ka High by some of the faculty
and he was also concerned
that there was only one black
teacher on the Wewahitchka
High faculty.
Superintendent Walter Wil-
der asked Hand to expand on


"and I cannot make a factual
report to this Board until I
investigate further to see what
the situation really is."
Hand then pointed out that
he felt the black students were
continually harassed, particu-
larly by Principal Clayton
Wooten and the faculty. "The
students are not causing any
problem", Hand said. "The


kids get along fine, but the;
faculty is giving us prob-
lems."
SCORES PRINCIPAL,
COACH
Hand said the principal
problem seemed to be that
Principal Wooten didn't want
the blacks and whites socializ-
ing together. "The kids get
along all right by themselves


as long as Wooten stays out of
it", Hand charged.
The speaker then went on to
charge that football coach
Buster Owens had cursed at
one of the black athletes.
Both Hand and Williams
asked the Board why there
was no more than one black
teacher at Wewahitchka High
School.


Shis complaint. Wilder said he
knew only what was told him
at a meeting Monday night, in
Wewahitchka, which about 30
blacks invited him to. "I heard
only one side", Wilder said,

a new or used truck whidh will
allow workmen to perform
tasks at least 50 feet in the air.
At present, all such tasks
are performed by using the
boom of the City crane as a
ladder. This is a dangerous
operation which leaves the
City open to a considerable
liability.
If purchased, the new piece
of equipment would be used by
both the City and the Waste-
water Treatment plant.
Another reason for buying
the truck-was impressed on
the Commission Tuesday aft-
ernoon when a fire broke out
on the roof of the Florida First
National Bank building. The
fire department had no way to
get to the fire, except through
a work access ladder inside
the building. There are now
several multi-story buildings
(Continued on Page 2)


Wilder told the Board at that
point that he would make no
recommendations to them on
Hands' accusations until the
situation was investigated
thoroughly. "We have only
one side of the story and we
must find out exactly what
happened." Wilder said he
would begin investigating the
charges immediately.
Hand then intimated that
the investigation would do no
good since the charged parties
would cover up their actions.
Wilder and Board member
Gene Raffield told the group
that they had ways of investi-
gating such matters to arrive
at the truth of things. Raffield
said, "Even if what you are
reporting is 100 percent right,
the law requires us to go
about these things in a pre-
scribed manner to protect the
rights of everybody involved".
TRIED TO HIRE BLACKS
Board members Raffield,
Kenneth Whitfield and chair-
man Waylon Graham told
Hand that the Board had tried
for several years to hire black
teachers to fill vacancies in
Wewahitchka without success.
"We just have not had the
applicants after searching for
them", Whitfield said.
Graham said, "All of our
teachers in Wewahitchka are
on continuing contract and we
cannot let them go to fill their
position with a black teacher,
even if one were available."
,The Board assured the dele-
gtfoio that with each future


vacancy in Wewahitchka they
would diligently try to employ
a black who is a good teacher.
"We're going to try and keep
from employing anyone, white
or black, who we don't feel
would be a good teacher",
Whitfield said.


DANCES
Board member Paul Sewell
then expressed a concern to
the Board for the atmosphere
which exists at school dances.
"We're running a bar room
for the kids at these dances."
Sewell said, explaining that
there is not enough discipline
and regulation at the affairs
which result in the kids com-
ing and going as they please
and doing what they please.
Sewell said that after the
last dance at Port St. Joe High
school, he and chairman Way-
Ion Graham inspected the
school grounds and found an
excessive number of empty
beer and whiskey containers
in and around the building.
"We have to put a stop to this,
even if we have to stop the
dances", Sewell said.
Kenneth Whitfield said


some of the same atmosphere
is avoided in Wewahitchka by
requiring students to stay- in
the building after they arrive
and restricting the dances
only to students and their
approved guests. He said the
guests must be registered with
the school the day prior to the


dance.
Gene Raffield noted that
"Most of our problems are
caused by a minority of the.
students. Most of them are
good kids. I would suggest that,
this Board get with the Stu-
dent Council and come up with:
a set of rules and regulations
for future dances. You will be
surprised at how tough the
students can be in such mat-
ters."
The Board decided to follow
Raffield's suggestion and
have a set of regulations
governing such affairs by the
next meeting.

Two Fire Calls Tuesday P.M.


Two fires Tuesday after-
noon, kept the Volunteer Fire
Department busy for most of
S the afternoon.
At about 2:45, fire was
reported on the roof of the
Florida First National Bank
building., When firemen an-'
swered the call, they found
that a heat pump compressor


on top of the building had
overheated aid was smoking
heavily.
Bank officials said Wednes-
day the compressor was put
out of action by the fire.
Later in the afternoon, at
4:25, an automobile, driven by
Shaleen Smith, caught fire at


the intersection of Marvin
Avenue and 20th Street. Mrs.
Smith attempted to start the
car and it burst into flames
under the hood.
The motor compartment in
the rear of the foreign-made
car was completely destroyed
and the inside of the vehicle
badly damaged.


Mill Operations Still Curtailed by


Inclement Weather Limitig Wood


Inclement weather over the .
nation still has one of St. Joe
Paper Company's two paper
machines shut down for lack
of raw material, with no
prospects for it starting back
up before next week, accord-
ing to Production Manager,


Harold Quackenbush.
The mill shut down one of its
two machines Monday, Feb-
ruary 27, due to heavy area
rains making it impossible to
get pulp wood out of the
woods. Heavy snows in the
north has also compounded


the problem by marooning
railroad box cars, keeping the
cars from being available for
shipment of manufactured
paper to the market. The
result is a glutted warehouse
of sold paper waiting for
shipment and no place to store


newly made paper.
Quackenbush said about 175
men are idled by the shut
down of the one paper ma-
chine.
"If these rains of the last
few days keep up, our situa-
tion may worsen", Quacken-


bush said. "We are trying to
keep the one machine going,
but wood had been coming in
mighty slow until this week,-
when things began to pick up a
little. Still we're not getting
enough for two machines to
operate".
The photo above shows the
nearly empty woodyard at the
mill, with only a small pile of
pulpwood at one end of the
yard. A train loadof pulp wood-
can be seen in the background,
indicating that wood is begin-
ning to come in.


Veteran Doctors Resign from ER Services

noon. The car was badly damaged.
-Star photo


Municipal Hospital's Board
of Directors was faced with
the problem of no coverage of
the Emergency Room again
this past week, just one year
from the date of the last crisis
in this area, because of resig-
nation of local doctors from
the service.
Last year at this time, the
local doctors, J. Wayne Hen-


drix, Joseph P. Hendrix and
Shirley Simpson resigned
from the service because of ill
health and problems with
malpractice insurance. The
crisis was alleviated when the
Directors hired Dr. Joseph
Vasquez to take care of the
service over the week ends.
The local doctors, along with
Dr. V. J. Poonai agreed to


take care of the week nights
and Dr. Poonai handled the
service during the day time,
five days a week.
The arrangement worked
fine until early this year when
Dr. Wayne Hendrix had his
illness and had to drop out of
rotation.
This past week, the three


local doctors, who have served
the emergency room needs,
free of charge for the past 25
years, again said they must
resign from the service.
In letters to the Board of
Directors, the three doctors
said they would no longer be
able to continue covering the
emergency service at nights
during the week. Each. gave


'-I


illness and bad health as 0th
reason for stepping aside. "'
Week end conferences and
meetings by the Directors
during the latter part of thie
week worked out an agree-
ment with Dr. Vasquez and
Dr. V. J. Poonai to cover the
emergency service untilsome
other arrangements can be
worked out in the near future.


"The kids get along fine together,

but the faculty is causing us

problems," Hand


"I cannot make a factual report to

this Board until I find out what

the problem is." -Wilder

RIALSS:


New Road Program


Can Help County


Letters to the Editor. ...


Scores Lack of Support from Community


Local government keeps want-
: :ing to be the master of its own
Affairs without the intervention of
i muscle. from the state or federal
.level. Much of the local power was
eroded or allowed to settle in the
hands of those higher up because of
a lack of initiative at home to
assume the growing responsibilities.
Our county and every other
county in the state is having some of
Sthe power formerly assumed by the
state, thrust into their hands and if
they handle it correctly, it can be a
boon for our people.
Gulf County will now have the
Responsibility of being stewards of
the secondary road money earned
each year by the county from
Gasoline taxes for use in building
Sand maintaining our local roads. In
the past, the county' has had to
"formulate a five year plan, each
S--year, and present it to. the Depart-
ment of Transportation for imple-
mentation. An inordinate amount of


this money was used for engineering
and administration of the program.
The local counties have belly-ached
about this situation for years.
Now, the burden of performance
falls on the local government.
It will be the responsibility of the
local County Commissioners to ad-
minister the funds, plan the roads,
arrange for the engineering and
issue the bids, as well as oversee the
construction.
This new program is going to
place an additional burden on the
County Commission, but we feel
they are now being adequately
compensated each year to assume
the task.
This new situation will give us
complete control over our road
program. In the future, if the roads
in the county do not come up to our
expectations, the buck will stop at
the Courthouse.
The new program can be a fine
thing for the county if it is adminis-
tered properly.


Deserve Punishment


The revelation late last week
that the Bay Line railroad tracks
were sabotaged, causing the train
.: wreck which cost eight lives and
scores hospitalized recently, is
enough to scare people.
S Have we degenerated to the
point where persons will deliberate-
ly unfasten a rail, causing a train to
wreck, knowing that many lives will
*'be in danger, merely as a prank or
because maybe a person is mad at a
Railroad?
SThis type of retribution isn't
limited these days against the
S railroads. We have vandals tearing
up public and private property, just
Sfor kicks. No particular reason is
evident for these dirty tricks. The

thing is there, so it deserves to be
torn up, seems to be the theme.
But the person sick enough to
cause the death, injury and destruc-
tion as was caused this past week on
the Bay Line in the Youngstown area
just doesn't deserve the amenities
they will receive from their prosecu-
tors if and when they are caught.
This revelation makes us think
that possibly the disaster which
occurred a week earlier in Waverly,
Tennessee was also the result of
some vandals causing the train to
wreck.
We believe this kind of person
deserves the same kind of fate
promised air high-jackers. They
deserve the worst punishment our
laws can give them.

County, Wewahitchka and
Port St. Joe. '
Chairman Graham expres-
sed his concern that the
program has not yet received
the money from the County or
the City of Wewahitchka and
the School Board is now
having to bankroll the project
until these sponsors pay up.
"We must get this money and
put it back", Graham said.
The School Board agreed to
ask the Recreation committee
which consists of William
Branch, Paul Sewell, Bob
Davis and James B. Roberts
to have a representative meet
with the County and Wewa-
hitchka and ask for their
contribution.
The Board also agreed to
ask for a monthly report from
the directors, Larry Mathes of
Wewahitchka and John Clen-
ney of Port St. Joe.

one thing you must admit, to
have faith in God and doubt
not is wonderful.


Dear Wesley,
Several years ago my hus-
band asked a local Chevrolet
dealer if he planned to attend
the Chamber of Commerce
Annual Dinner Meeting on a
particular night. The dealer
said no, thatwhen he was a
little boy a catfish stuck him in
the hand and since then he
didn't like catfish. My hus-
band's reply was unprintable,
but I will soften it for you. It
went something like this:
"Well, for Pete's sake, you
don't go to the Chamber
dinner just to eat, do you?"
The Chevrolet dealer didn't
go, but about 200 other people
did and enjoyed a delicious
catfish dinner prepared by the
late Jake Mouchette and
others he recruited to help,
him. The tragedy of this
situation was the Chevrolet
dealer didn't realize those 200
people were all potential
Chevrolet customers. He later
went bankrupt and moved
away from Port St. Joe. In this
case he couldn't see the custo-
mers for the catfish.
What I am really getting at,
Wesley, is the poor support the
people, and especially the
merchants and professional
men, in Port St. Joe give the
Chamber of Commerce. Had a
survey, been taken on
February 13 of this year,
excuses for not attending
would have been many and
varied. They probably would
have gone like this: "Well, the
Lion's Club is preparing the
food and I don't like the Lions
Club, so I won't go," or "Old
Dr. Tyree is going to speak
and I can't stand him, so I
guess I'll stay home and watch
TV," or "When I was a little
boy a cow kicked me and I
never liked steak since then,
so I'm not going," or "Old
Sheriff Murphy will be there
and I didn't vote for him, so I
can't go," or "Old George
Tapper will probably be there,
and I can't stand him, so I just
won't go," or "Everytime I
go, old Welton Roche is there
and I don't like him so I'll stay
home". These reasons are
ridiculous but so are the ones
people actually use.
The business and profes-
sional men in Port St. Joe are
responsible for this. Of course,
you can't hog-tie a fellow and
drag him to the Chamber
dinner, but if the merchants
and professional men would
attend and taken an active
interest, probably the people
would, too. Many times people
ask "What good is the
Chamber of Commerce, what
do they ever do?" These are
good questions but they are
always asked by people look-
ing for an excuse to find fault
with the Chamber. The
Chamber is no good at all nor
can it do anything for the
community without the sup-
port of the people of the area
and especially the business
and professional men. Too
many people expect some-
thing from the Chamber with-
out putting anything into it.
Port St. Joe is being used and
abused. Too many businesses
in Port St. Joe have outside
ownership and they contribute
not one dime or one minute to
helping Port St. Joe. They
reap all the benefits and
refuse even to join the
Chamber of Commerce or to
participate in the city-wide
sales and promotions and
other things the Chamber tries


to offer.
There are businesses in Port
St. Joe .to represent almost
anything you can imagine. We
have auto parts stores, auto-
mobile agencies, service sta-
tions, grocery and hardware
stores, beauty and barber
shops, bakery, bar rooms,
loan companies, jewelry
stores,;restaurants, motels,
dry-cleaning and laundra-
mats, printing shop, furniture
stores, dime and dollar stores,
bank, drug stores, upholstery
shops, clothing and depart-
ment stores, appliance and
television stores and repair
shops, florist and gift shops,
feed and seed stores, bulk
plant. We have fishing and
shrimp industries in addition
to the larger industrial plants.
There are numerous profes-


sional men in our community,
dentist, optometrist, mini-
sters, tax accountants, doc-
tors, lawyers and Indian
Chief. Of the dozens of busi-
nesses in our town only six
were represented. One mini-
ster and two lawyers
attended. The Indian Chief
didn't come either.
Always, there is comment in
Port St. Joe about its being a
dull little town with nothing to
do. Then when there is some-
thing worthwhile to do, the
citizens won't support it. The
Chamber of Commerce is just
as important to Port St. Joe as
the Chamber of Commerce is
to New York City. The annual
dinner meeting is a time of fun
and fellowship and good food
and for people who haven't
seen each other in a year to


meet again. I can't remember
ever missing one and don't
plan to as long as I am able to
crawl out there. Every year I
am saddened a little more at
the lack of response. Some of
the older men have now taken
back seats in favor of their
sons. These daddies are still
supporting and attending, but
the sons are holding the reins.
That is as it should be. The
entire board is a group of fine
young men, headed by the
President, John Miller. They
need our support and we
should give it to them. They
didn't ask for these jobs but
graciously accepted them to
give of their time and talents
for the betterment of Port St.
Joe and surrounding area. It
has been heartbreaking for
our son, David, since he has


been a director and officer, to
realize how little the citizens
of Port St. Joe really care
about Port St. Joe and its
Chamber of Commerce.
I say, let's do something
about it. Let's support these
eager young men in their
venture and let us all be proud
of Port St. Joe, Florida.
If, by writing this letter, I
have stepped on anybody's
toes, then I am glad. Maybe it
will hurt enough, you'll get out
and start doing something.
Thank you, Wesley, for
letting me give off steam.
Mrs. W. C. Roche

(Ed Note: Emily, you hit the
nail on the head and said the
proper words. Rave on, lady,
vwe need more of this type
rhetoric.)


ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


I don't care what the groundhog said back
during the early part of February, I have proof
positive that winter didn't last for six more
weeks.
The signs are all there. The weeds are
beginning to grow (the grass will follow later).
The camellias are in full bloom. The pine pollen
was very evident Saturday morning, meaning
that the pine trees say it is Spring.
The gardeners are all busy and many have
most of their crop in the ground. Irish potatoes
were planted during the middle of Feburuary
and some say they are even up already.
There's many signs that winter didn't last as
long as the groundhog said it would, but proof
positive came around to The Star office this past
week and let it be known that the cold hard
winter was over.
Two state-wide candidates for office dropped
by this past week, announcing that they are
thinking hard about seeking office in Tallahas-
see. This is our proof positive that it is indeed
Spring. The "early birds" are out after the vote.
Bob Ghaham, candidate for Governor, came
in last Wednesday, shepherded through his
itinerary here in Port St. Joe by former
Representative John Robert Middlemas of
Panama City.
Graham said he spent the previous day in
Panama City working on the docks, in his
program of spending a day working at various
trades and tasks throughout the state to find out
what the working man is thinking.
Our floor here at The Star, in the front office,
needed vacuuming at the time and I came within
a hair of asking Graham to do the job. I thought
better of it. He might not know how to operate a
vacuum cleaner and the job would have to be
done over again, anyhow.
Graham asked questions and wrote our
answers down in a little black book. If he does
that everywhere he goes, he will have several

in the City which would cause
considerable trouble if they
were to catch fire.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Tabled for more informa-
tion an offer to participate in a
HUD rent subsidy program.


-Agreed to send three
WWP employees to a week of
schooling at the University of
Gainesville.
-Discussed receiving bids
to construct a concession
stand and rest room facilities
at the new softball complex.


black books full of answers before he makes the
rounds of the entire state.
Later in the week, Beverly Dozier of
Tallahassee, was in the office announcing that
she would try again for the office of secretary of
State. Mrs. Dozier ran a good race four years ago
against our present Secretary, Bruce Smathers.
Smathers now thinks he would like to be
Governor and is vacating the job he sought so
diligently just four years ago.
If the past methods of politicking by state
candidates holds to form, we will have a lot of
visitors during the next month or two as the time
draws near to qualify and get to running in
earnest. It seems that nearly everyone who ever
thought of running for a public office wants to
run for Governor this year. With the Attorney
General and Secretary of State both after the top
job in the state, these offices will also be up for
grabs and the candidates seeking these jobs
(provided they are not abolished by the people
voting on the re-written Constitution) will be
beating the roads this spring and summer.
The political bug, which beat the chinch bug
into action this year, isn't confined to the state
offices, either. I saw a bumper sticker the other
day, already printed up in day-glo red, that
announced the candidacy of one Leverel
"Sparky" Raffield of out near Overstreet, for
County Commissioner.
It's going to be a banner year, it seems, for
politicians.
We're ready.

Speaking of politicians our Public Service
Commission must also be bothered with the
turmoil the rising of the spring sap causes in a
person. The symptoms are all there.
Last week, the regulatory agency allowed
Air Florida a new route from Tallahassee to
Gainesville. The air service was seeking to take
over some of the routes formerly flown and
recently abandoned by National Airlines.
Air lorida got the right to fly the route easy
enough.There's one spider in the buttermilk; the
passengers can't get off the airplane when it
arrives in Gainesville.
Doesn't that sound exactly like a zany spring
action to you?
As it boils down, Air Florida can now offer
aerial sight-seeing excursions between Talla-
hassee and Gainesville. If you want to stay in
"Hog Town", you still have to drive or take the
bus.

SCity Auditor and Clerk Mike
Wright spoke to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, outlining
the City's financial picture,
progress and plans for the
future.
Wright told the Rotarians
that with capital improve-
ments planned for the current
year, the Commission would
manage some $5 million for
the City. "This comes to $1,200
for each citizen in the City
Limits", Wright said.
S Of this amount, $285,000 is
raised from ad valorem taxes.
The remainder comes from
various sources such as: $2
million from the Wastewater
Treatment Plant, mostly paidl
Sby local industry,. $340,000
from the Water and Sewer
Service which makes that ser-
Svice self supporting, $95,000
from cigarette taxes, $65,000
from utility taxes, $50,000-,
from garbage services and
$87,000 from federal revenue
Ssharing.money. The remaind-
er of the financial picture is
being paid for by a $1.4 mil-
lion loan from the Farmer's
Home Administration for im-
provements to the water treat-
ment system.
-Wright pointed out that only
$800,000 of the City operation
was paid for by tax-supported
services. The remainder is
from self supporting opera-
tions.

water and our engineers tell
us it will be better than what
we now have", the Clerk said.
Wright pointed out that the
City's water needs have out-
grown the amount available to
us from the St. Joe Paper
Company canal and the wells
are being dug to supply the
present needs.
For the future, Wright saw
the City providing water and
sewer services for the beaches
area. "This will be a good deal
for us and for them", Wright
said.
Wright said the City is in
good shape in equipment,
services and finances.
Guest of the club was
Richard Zyski.


Wright said the revenue
from gasoline taxes and fed-
eral revenue sharing is de-
creasing each year, while the
cigarette tax revenue is in-
creasing. He pointed out that
the revenue from cigarette
taxes represent the purchase
of one million packages of
cigarettes.
Outlining construction pro-
jects, Wright pointed out that
the City had just completed a
storm drain project in the
Garrison Avenue area at a
cost of $280,000 and would get
under way in the next few
months with improving and
enlarging the water treatment
plant. "This time next year,

This is the 13th tour for a
Mobile College choir and the
eighth tour under the direction
of Dr. Kenneth Bergdolt.
The program consists of a
variety of choral works repre-
senting classical, standard,
modern, and folk arrange-
ments.
In addition, to its annual
tour, the choir also presents
an annual Boar's Head Festi-
val on campus each Christmas
season. The production,
complete with costumes, sets
and lights, recreates a medie-
val Christmas celebration
much like those held in
England during the 13th and
14th centuries. Last year's
three performances played to
full houses each evening.
The Choir has sung in most
of the southern states at
conventions, churches, civic
occasions, benefits, and with
orchestra on the concert
stage.
.Scott White, son of Mr. and
Mrs. John White, and'Sammy
Parker, son of Mr: and Mrs.
Sammy C. Parker, Sr., all of
Port St. Joe, are members of
the Mobile College Choir.

For several months,
students, their teachers and
advisers from the six-county
area of Bay, Calhoun, Gulf,
Holmes, Jackson, and Wash-
ington have been preparing.
for the preliminary competi-
tion leading up the regional
event. Their sights then are
focused on the state fair,
hosted this year by the Florida
Panhandle Region, Okaloosa
County, in the Niceville Senior
High School, April 19-22.
The budding scientists' ulti-
mate goal is the International
Science and Engineering Fair
in the Anaheim Convention
Center, Orange County, Cali-
fornia, May 9-14.
Each year the Three Rivers
regional event grows in
stature and scope. Some 150
students last year entered the
science and engineering
competition and the science
talent search. The science
talent search offers students a
chance to give oral presenta-
tions of technical papers de-
scribing their own investiga-
tions.
The impressive list of
awards grows as donations
are received. In addition to
winning their way to the state
and international fairs, parti-


cipants will be vying for
two-year scholarships to Gulf
Coast Community College or
Chipola Junior College, cash
awards, plaques, and many
special awards from various
health agencies and private
industry.
According to Three Rivers
Fair Director Dr. James
Nelander, research physicist
in the High Resolution Sonar
Division at NCSC, contestants
in both junior and senior
divisions will be displaying
projects and exhibits in eleven
different sciences- behavioral
and social sciences, bio-
chemistry, botany, chemistry,
earth and space sciences,
engineering, health and medi-
cine, mathematics and
computers, microbiology,
physics, and zoology. The
talent search will have
students presenting papers in
the biological and physical
sciences.
Nelander views the Three
Rivers science fair as
probably the finest example of
cooperative effort among
communities, schools, county
and city officials, federal
activities, professional people,
students, and merchants in
the .area.
