Bank Charter Is Denied


The office of State Compt-
troller Gerald Lewis this week
turned down an application of
a group of area businessmen
to form a second banking
house here in Port St. Joe.
Lewis's office denied a char-
- ter to the proposed Bank-of


Port St. Joe on the grounds
that the proposed officers did
not fully comply with their
requirements to have a char-
ter granted. The group had
applied for a charter to oper-.
ate a state bank here in Port
St. Joe.


Paper Mill Shutting


Down for Two Weeks


St. Joe Paper Company
will shut down its mill
operations here Saturday
morning for a two week
period, according to Fer-
rell Allen, Jr., assistant
production manager.

Allen said the shut-down
is necessary because of
some repairs which need to
be made to a boiler which is
necessary to the mill's


operations. Allen said an-
other reason making the
shut-down necessary is a
lack of box cars with which
to ship out the finished
product. Alien said the cars
are hard to obtain at this
particular time, causing a
pile-up of finished orders in
the company's warehouse.
Allen said the mill would
resume operations in two
weeks.


The charter was denied
principally on two counts.
First, Lewis felt the proposed
capital of $650,000 was insuffi-
cient, but recognized the fact
that this could be remedied by
the proposed ,chartering
group. The charter was also
- denied on the grounds that the
Department felt the require-
ment .f a reasonable chance
for success had not and could
not be met due to the present
economic conditions in Gulf
County, caused chiefly by the
lack of population growth over
the past 20 years and the
negligible increase in deposits
and loans 'over' the same
period of time..
The Comptroller felt that
the proposed officers and di-
rectors had sufficient qualifi-
cations as businessmen and
bankers. The proposed name
for the bank was not confusing
,since no other banks in this

Report 71 Due Paving


Discuss Legislation


Representative Billy Joe Rish and
State Senator Pat Thomas discussed
pending legislation with a group of
interested citizens in the Gulf County
Courthouse last Thursday afternoon.
The most interest seemed to be stirred
locally by members of the Sportsmen's
Club who wanted the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission to return control
of the Edward Ball Game Reserve back to
Their care. Other items under discussion
were the proposed fresh-salt water fishing
line being considered at the Highland View
bridge, summer-time oystering in the
county, pay increases for local public
officials and a concern for granting
building variances in controlled areas
without a public notice of some kind.
Representative Rish started the meet-
ing, off by giving an overview of local
legislation he would proposein the session
which started Tuesday of this week.
Risii reported he had been notified by
the Department of Transportation that
State Road 71 would be repaved from
Wewahitchka to the county line within 90
days, then from Cypress Creek to Wewa-
hitchka later in the year. He said that
within year, the road would be resurfac-
ed all the way to Marianna.
Rish reported that he would file local
legislation to'establish a special fire
district for the Overstreet area. The bill
would allow for up to a half mill tax levy on
property affected in the area, including
homesteads. "The bill will become law
only if the people affected in the proposed
district approve of it", Rish said.
The veteran Representative also said
he would introduce a local bill removing
the limitation on indebtedness which can
be incurred by revenue certificate issues
of the Port St. Joe Port Authority. "Their
limits are now $3% million which were
established many years ago. You can't
build much of a port for that kind of money
these days", Rish observed. He said the
bill would provide that any revenue
certificate issue would be repayable from
revenues derived from the operation of a
future port. Rish said the bill was
necessary if there is ever to be any port
development here.
Rish said he would file a bill allowing a
private oyster bar to remain open during
the summer months in Gulf County such as
now is the case in Franklin County. "The


bar open in the summer would remain
closed during the regular oyster season",
Rish noted.
Senator Pat Thomas said he saw no
new taxes from the coming session. "It's
an election year and last year's new taxes
on liquor and cigarettes are bringing in
$129 million plus the fact that natural
growth is giving us -$200 million more in
taxes which will more than pay for any
new pay raises", Thomas said.
Rish said the Legislature will try to
head off any proposed increase in hunting
and fishing licenses in the state.
Senator Thomas warned those present
that road work in .small counties will get
harder and harder to get. "All of the small
counties are banding together to try and
salvage some of their needed road work
but I don't know how successful we will be.
Opposition from larger counties is getting
tougher and tougher", Thomas said.
Thomas also reported that he has
pre-filed a bill to ease off on stiff
requirements against industry which is
discouraging new firms from moving to
Florida. "It will also give local counties
the option of giving some sort of tax
incentive for new industry in order for us
to compete with Georgia and Alabama
which now have this option", he said..
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor end Mrs. Jane
Johnson asked whether or not it was now
required that a public notice be given for
any waiver in set-back line construction
allowed. They were specific about con-
struction now going on and planned for the
St. Beach area on the water side of the
highway. "We see 'For Sale' signs going
up every day in this area in Yon's
addition", they said, "and the people out
there are just sick over it". Rish said, "I
don't know if it is the law to give prior
notice or not, but if it isn't I'm going to try
and make it the law".
Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker asked the law-
makers about the probability of a bill
passing which would allow a pay increase
for Elections Supervisors in smaller
counties. Both Rish and Thomas said that
if one local public office was granted a pay
increase, then all would get it. Clerk
George Y. Core noted "In some counties,
employees in the Clerk's offices are
making more than the constitutional
officer, since the pay rate must be made
attractive to hire competent help but the
officer's salary is set by law".

City Sets Street Paving Priorities


Roberts First

to Qualify
City Commissioner James
B. Roberts became the first
candidate to pay his qualifica-
tion fee to seek election in the
Municipal Election scheduled
for May 2.
Roberts is seeking his fourth
term on the Board. Thus far he
has no opposition.
SGerald Sullivan, who now
occupies the other Commis-
sion post up for election in
May told The Star Tuesday
that he plans to seek re-elec-
tion but he had not qualified at
press time yesterday.
Qualification books for po-
tential candidates will remain
open until 5:00 p.m., Tuesday,;
April 18.


The City Commission
came up with a list of nine
streets which were badly in
need of paving and set up a
priority list to present to the
County Commission for app-
roval at their meeting Tues-
day night.
The County had requested
the City to makeup a priority
list to be paved under the
secondary program, which the
county will begin administer-
ing in fiscal 1980, which starts
on July 1 of next calendar
year.
In the list of nine streets
having top priority for paving
were two streets which are not
now paved. The other streets
in the list would require only
re-capping.
Taking top priority, for the
time being, was Monument
Avenue from Allen Memorial


Way to Highway 98.
Monument is a main artery
for much of the city's traffic
and is beginning to break up,
chiefly, it is thought, because
of the salt water which cover-
ed the road two years ago by
hurricane tides.
The second street on the list,
which was compiled by Street
Superintendent Dorton Had-
den and Commissioner Tom S.
Coldewey, was Allen Memor-
ial Way from Long Avenue to
Highway 98.
Third on the list is 20th
Street from Monument Ave-
nue to Garrison Avenue. A
portion of this street will be
paved this year as part of a
recent contract to place a
storm drainage system adja-
cent to 20th from Garrison
east to the Forest Park drain-

FBI Investigating Wewa

Bank Embezzlement


John V. O'Rourke, spe-
cial agent in charge of the
Jacksonville Division of the
Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation and Roy Lister,
President, Wewahitchka
State Bank, confirmed this
week that an investigation
is being conducted into an
alleged embezzlement of
funds from the bank. The
amount of funds involved
and the identities of the
persons responsible were
not disclosed.
The deposits of the We-
wahitchka State Bank are
insured by the Federal


Deposit Insurance Corpor-
ation (FDIC) and in addi-
tion, the bank's employees
are bonded by a reputable
company which fully in-
sures the bank against any
loss. Mr. Lister stressed
that the funds of depositors
are secure and the
solvency of the bank has in
no way been jeopardized.

The FBI advised that an:-
internal audit of the bank is
being conducted and it Is
expected charges will be
filed following additional
investigation.


750-Acre Forest Fire Destroys Beach Home


A large forest fire of unde- proximately 750 acres and one

blaze, making its own wind
and travelling fast toward
Highway 98.
By 1:00 p.m., there was a
definite threat to six houses at
St. Joe Beach and fire de-
partments from Port St. Joe,
Highland View and the Beach-
es were called into action to
try and save the threatened
homes.
By the time the fire reached
the highway, it was travelling
with such a velocity that one
home, which was built close to
the undergrowth caught fire
and burned to the ground in
spite of efforts to save it.
Other homes in the vicinity
were a little farther from the
burning woods and were saved
from more than a good scorch-
ing.
The burned home belonged
to the Spencer family of
Columbus, Georgia.


-Star photo A storage shed burned and a
fuel storage tank behind one of


homes exploded in the heat.
Another home had the fire get
so close the heat melted' a
large plastic garbage contain-
er sitting on the carport.
The fire was travelling so
fast and had such heat by the
time it reached the highway
that it jumped the road and
burned undergrowth growing
alongside the beach.
The fire was brought under
control in mid afternoon but
local officials are still having
problems with it. Sheriff Ken
Murphy said that patches of
muck in the burn area are still
smouldering and at night
cause a driving hazard along
the highway. "We have to
block off the road and lead
motorists through the smoke
at night because it gets so
heavy and lays right down on
the road", Sheriff Ken Mur-
phy said.
Forestry officials are still
investigating the cause of the
fire.

Stone's Excuse for Vote


SIs Flimsy


Senator Dick Stone was called
on the carpet in Tallahassee last
week for his vote on the Panama
Canal issue, after stating he would
vote against the treaties. The Amer-
:-ican Legion asked for an explanation
one day and the Tallahassee Rotary
Club posed the same questions the
following day.
Senator Stone answered that he
, voted for the first phase of the
treaties because he feared what
consequences turning down the trea-
Sties would have on Fidel Castro's
influence in the Latin nations. Stone
said he feared that Cuba would gain
t.oo much influence if the treaties
were turned down.
Too, Senator Stone said there
were reasons revealed to him which
i Could not be made public which
caused him to vote as he did after he
toldd his constituents he would cast a,
"nay" vote. ,' ,
To be fair to the Senator, he
made a public statement later in the
week that he would vote against the
other phases of the treaties if the
:United States could not secure an
:agreement whereby the United
States could construct another canal
in the region at some time in the
future, without any opposition.


It's true that the present canal is
becoming obsolete so far as size is
concerned, but it will still handle the
great majority of ships afloat today.
If this situation changes in the
future, that should be the time to
consider giving the canal away, it
seems to us.
But back to Senator Stones'
reasons for casting his "aye" vote.
First the fear of Castro's in-
fluence. It would seem to us that if
the United States, with all its
expertise, its brilliant people, its
wealth and its know-how, can't
circumvent some small nation such
as Cuba, which is entirely dependent
upon Russia to stay afloat, we don't
deserve to keep the Canal.
Again, if there is a good reason
to give away the canal, which the
Senator claims he is privey to, we
think the people of this nation
deserve to ;know what it is. Giving
away the canal is an important
decision for the nation to make and
not knowing all the reasoning behind
the move is like asking a man to
fight a grizzly bear with one hand
tied behind his back.
If these "secret" reasons are no
better than the public ones, we think
the Senate is doing the nation an
injustice.


Next Tuesday the County Com-
mission will make the final decision
in determining the salt-fresh water
line at the Highland View bridge.
Commercial fishermen are wanting
the line to protect the future of
mullet fishing in the area. Sports-
men want the right to fish in the
canal as they have in the past
without the necessity of buying a
fresh water fishing license.

S The move under consideration
by the County Commission would let
us live in the best of both worlds. It
would prohibit the netting of fish on
a commercial basis in the canal and
still leave it open for free access by
sportsmen to go after their prey
without having to comply with fresh


water fishing rules. In other words,
their proposed action would put into
writing and statute what people of
this area have voluntarily done in
the past.
We all cry in our soup about
being over-regulated by govern-
ment, but the irresponsible actions
of some commercial fishermen in
the past concerning canal fishing, is
what made the regulations neces-
sary in the first place.
We approve their move as being
the best step they could make for
protecting the rights of the commer-
cial and sports fisherman alike as
well as putting some restrictions on
the commercial use of this natural
resource which is so vital to a
section of the economy in this area.

Smathers Tells Historians of



Reasons to Save Old Capitol


Secretary' of State Bruce
Smathers had a speech-
makers dream for an au-
dience here Saturday after-
noon, as he gave his reasons
as to why the old state Capitol
building should be saved.
Speaking before an audience
of about 75 members of the St.
Joseph Historical Society and
their guests, the Secretary of
State said the building should
be preserved as both useful
office space for the State and
for its historic value. His lis-
teners agreed with him.
Getting right to the heart of
the matter, Smathers said the
building is not only old, but it
is historic. The Secretary of
State reminded his audience
that the building has been
built around the state's first
capitol building, which started
under construction in 1841 and
was completed in 1845. "it's
the only capitol building this
state has ever had and it is as
old as the state itself". The
speaker said he had recently
learned that Florida's old
capitol building is one of the
five oldest in the nation still
in use.
Smathers outlined the var-
ious renovations and additions
which have been made to the
building upto the last addition
which was completed in 1947.
"The building and its history
reflect the state's growth", lie
said. He pointed out that the
much maligned "dome" was
added 75 years ago and was

Commends

Kiwanis
Dear Wesley:
When I came to Port St. Joe
in 1953 the annual Easter
Sunrise Service was being
sponsored by the Kiwanis Club
because there was no mhirl'
sterial organization. 'Soon
thereafter the Port St. Joe
Ministerial Association was
organized and the,Kiwanis
Club asked us to sponsor the
Easter service.
Even though the responsi-
bility of planning and pro-
moting the traditional worship
early on Easter morning has
been ,placed upon the
ministers, it is interesting to
note, however, that during
these twenty-five years the
members of the local Kiwanis
Club remain faithful to this
service. They are always
ready to assist in every way
possible.
The Kiwanis Club is to be
commended for their support
of the spiritual and moral
interest of our community.
Sincerely,

Save Mullet!
April 2, 1978
Dear Editor:
After reading The Star, it
appears that most of the
people are interested in a
better mullet population.
I think the simplest solu-
tion to the problem would be to
close the mullet season for one
month. Can you imagine how
many more fish there would
be?
One month closed season
during spawning season
wouldn't hurt anyone. I sure
would hate to have to go a
month without a mullet
though.

The U. S. Air Force has
promoted William H. Todd,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd E.
Todd of 1804 Marvin Ave.,
Port St. Joe, to the rank of
master sergeant.
Sergeant Todd is serving at
Shaw AFB, S.C. as a medical

graduate of Port St. Joe High
School.
His wife, Linda, is the

itself historical.
The young state cabinet
member also pointed out that
the building contains some
338,000 square feet of space
which could be utilized by the
state in its never-ending
search for office space. He
pointed out that this space
could be made with some work
in the building which would
cost very little more than
estimated costs for razing the
building and replacing it with
a park,
Smathers pointed out that
the building is structurally
sound and gave as his verifi-
cation for this statement, sur-
veys made by architects of the
present capitol building and
the engineering firm of Rey-
nolds, Smith and Hill, who
made the survey of the build-
ing during construction of the
new one to ascertain whether
or.not pile driving and excava-
tion for the new building would
cause a hazard to the old one.
"Their report was that the
building is structurally
sound", Smathers said.
To remove the problem of
having the old building sitting
squarely in front of the en-
trance to the new building,
Smathers noted that the front
and back sides of the new
building are identical. He
suggested designating what is
now the back entrance as the
front and that problem would
be solved.
Smathers said that only
Senator Lew Brantley, Gover-
nor Askew and Representa-
tive Donald Tucker were the
ones wielding considerable
power who advocated tearing
down the old building. "All of
them will no longer be in office
after this session", he pointed
out. "If we can save the old
capitol this year, we will have
saved it forever".
The Historical Society had
invited members of the Apa-
lachicola and Panama City
historical societies and mem-
bers of local government to be
their guests for the presenta-
tion by Smathers.

Calling It Quits


Billy Joe Rish, who has
served this district in the
Florida Legislature for eight
years, announced late last
week that he will retire from
politics after his present term
is up in November. "I'm just
going to be a plain citizen and
devote more time to my law
practice and my family", Rish
said.
Rish has made a name for
himself during his tenure in
the Legislature and has been
listed by Florida Trend maga-
zine as one of the most
powerful members in the
House..
Rish has gained state-wide


prominence from his commit-
tee assignments one of which
is membership on the judicial
division of the judiciary com-
mittee. He was instrumental
and chaired impeachment
proceedings against several
members of the Florida Su-
preme Court.'
The local legislator is also a
member of the rules and
appropriations committees.
Rish-told The Star last week
that he feels he needs to be at
home more than he is now able
to be. "My children are grow-
ing up fast and if I don't spend
some time with them now, I'll
miss -that part of my life".


Rish said he appreciated the
loyalty of his constituents; his
family and colleagues in the
Legislature who have cooper-
ated with him so well in the
past eight years. He was
re-elected to three of his four
terms in the House without
opposition.
Rish is married to the
former Carol Thompson and
they have a son, Jay, 9, and a
daughter, Cathy, 11. They
reside on Marvin Avenue here
in Port St. Joe.
Rish is a native of Wewa-
hitchka and graduated from
Wewahitchka High School in
1950. ,. '

night which flips over on the calendar. He has no
time to call his own, or time to spend with his
family.
When you are a State Representative, you
are a captive of the people. Your going to bed and
getting up is dictated by what the people want
you to do for them. Your vacations (or lack of),
your spare time (which is virtually non-existant)
is all subject to being cancelled on a moment's
notice by something you are expected to do. The
leisure time is cancelled more often than it is not.

When you get right down to it; I guess the
people, whom Billy Joe has served so faithfully
and so well during the past eight years are the
ones responsible for his having to. resign. The
pace was just getting to be more than even he
could bear.
That's saying something. Billy Joe is one of
those guys who has energy to throw away. Even
when he is sitting reasonably still, he is moving.
He probably moves in his sleep. But even an
active person gets tired at times.

Our local governments are going to miss
Billy Joe sorely. The average person just doesn't
realize how often he is called on to use the
influence with state agencies he has built up over
the past years to prevent local government from
having to do things and establish regulations
local people would not want them to do. One big
example is the garbage burial program. Were it
not for the connections Billy Joe has, Gulf County
would now be spending several thousands of
dollars a year hauling every scrap of garbage
collected all over the county to a dump which lies
near the northern county line. That could get
expensive.
Billy Joe has been able to work out a deal
with the Department of Environmental Regula-
tion to come up with another solution. Right now,
it appears as if a site for a garbage land-fill
has been located here in the south end of the
county which will be acceptable. But, under the
guidelines set down by the state, we should not
have received that extra time to make the
property search.
There is hardly a County Commission or a


City Commission meeting goes by, where Billy
Joe sits as attorney for both bodies, where he is.
not called on to see if he can take care of some
matter or other.
His stepping down will stop much of that and
put a hardship on both boards which has not been
there before. It has been very handy to just say,
"Take care of it, Billy Joe."
Local governments are much to blame for
Billy Joe's deciding to step down. I have felt for
some time now that they expect just too much of
him.

In a way, Billy Joe let himself get into the
predicament of not having a moment to call his
own, because when someone would say, "Take
care of it, Billy Joe', he was always eager and
willing to do so. Or at least he appeared to be
eager and willing. If he wasn't so, he was one of
the best actors I have ever seen.

Another thing I'll miss at the end of the year,
when Billy Joe's present term expires is his:
honesty.
I don't ever remember asking Billy Joe a
question or having him promise to do something
he didn't do or at least attempt to do. He has
never told me that lie would or wouldn't do, vote
one way or the other, oppose some action, or
approve another, without sticking to the vow he
made. If he didn't agree with our request or
position he would just say so and that would be
that. I respected him for that.
I also respected Bill for his Christian
witness. It was no secret that he was a Christian
and didn't participate in those activities which
he should refrain from. Probably the most upset
I have ever seen him was in questioning him
about the now famous "trailers" incident of a
year ago, when Billy Joe was reported to have hit
a smart-aleck young reporter for having implied
that he was compromising himself, his honesty
and his Christian beliefs. He was upset.

We'll more than likely replace Billy Joe with
another good man from somewhere in this
district. Likely he will be a good debater and a
person interested in serving the people. We may
even hit lucky again and get a completely honest
individual to serve as our Representative.
But, we'll never have another Billy Joe, and
that's our considerable loss.

SHearing Tuesday Will Feel


Support
A hearing will be conducted
in the County Commission
meeting room of the Gulf
County Courthouse Tuesday
afternoon which could have a
vital bearing on whether or
not Gulf County will be able to
receive a certificate of need
which is mandatory for a
planned nursing home to lo-
cate here. The hearing will
begin at 6:00p.m., and will be
conducted by the Florida Pan-
handle Health Systems Agen-
cy, Inc., who must make the
decision as to whether or not


for Nursing Home


the certificate of need is
granted.
County Commissioner Leo
Kennedy, who is the county
representative on the greater
Panhandle Health Systems
committee told The Star Mon-
day that it was his information
*that the'executive committee
of the agency had decided
against granting the certifi-
cate of need. The executive
committee is made up of the
paid employees of the agency
and are not the last word in the
matter, although their deci-


sions carry a great deal of
weight in the final decision.
At present several petitions
are being circulated through-
out the county calling for
approval of the certificate of
need by the agency. The
petitions will be presented at
the hearing Tuesday.
Those who attend the hear-
ing and wish to be heard must
have their presentations in
writing for the agency hearing
committee. The hearing will
be open to the general public.


According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, members of his de-
partment have spent many
man-hours during the past
several weeks gaining infor-
mation on illegal drug activity
in the Wewahitchka area.
"Most of the information ob-
tained comes from concerned
citizens, and all information
from such persons in confiden-
tial," said Sheriff Murphy.
After weeks of surveillance,
Sheriff Murphy announced


that officers of the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department'
made three arrests early
Sunday morning, and seized
marijuana and illegal pres-
cription drugs.
The first arrest came a little
after 2:00 a.m., when Joel
David Charnetzki, age 21, of
SKinard, Florida, was arrested
and charged with "Felony
Possession of Marijuana."
The arrest was made on State

Writing

Tells All

About You
Mrs. Betty Jo Anderson, a
Graphoanalyst from Panama
City presented a very interest-
ing program to the Rotary
Club Thursday on handwriting
:and, how it reveals -the type
person the writer is.
Mrs. Anderson said.the me-
thod is used in many personnel
offices throughout the nation
for hiring employees. "The
method is almost fool-proof",
she said. Mrs. Anderson said
the way a person thinks or
feels dictates the manner in
which they write.
Some of her instances she
cited were that if a person
wrote in a straight up verticle
manner, the writer is more
than likely cool, calculating
and doesn't get involved. On
the other hand, a person with a
slight slant to the right in his
writing is emotionally respon-
sive and gets in too big a
hurry. A person who has
handwriting which slants to
the left has just the opposite
qualities. '
Mrs. Anderson used a chalk
board to show some illustra-
tions of traits one could expect
from people by the way they
formed certain letters and
even the size of their writing.

Kiwanis Begins Campaign'


to Collect "Valuable Junk",


Florida High against Bowling
Green at 3:00 and at 5:00. St.
Joe will finish up the day of
baseball with a nightcapper at
7:30 against Bowling Green.
St. Joe has had an admir-
able record the past four
years, posting a 28-4 record in
1974, 24-8 in 1975, 18-10 in 1976
and 24-5 in 1977, for a com-
bined total of 94-27. The Shark
baseballers were state run-
ners-up in 1975 and advanced
to the state tourney in 1977.
Currently, five Shark
alumni are playing college
ball at Livingston University
in Livingston, Ala. They are
Sandy Sanborn, Bubba Har-
mon, Kenny Weimorts, Luke
Weimorts and Keef Pettis.
The Sharks present record
stands at 5-5, and they are led
by the hitting of seniors Craig
Weimorts, .419, Wade Stouta-
mire, .373, and Gregg Chason,
.300.
Florida High brings a cur-
rent record of 11-8 to the Day
of Baseball. They were run-
ners-up in 1975, '76 and '77 in-
District tournaments. Florida
High coach made the state-
ment, "Always a bridesmaid,
never a bride. We would be
winning more if it wasn't for
Port St. Joe."
Florida High has five hitters
batting above .300;
The Bowling Green Purples,
under the coaching of Clar-
ence Thomas have compiled a
207-57 record in the past eight
years.
The 1978 edition of the Pur-
ples will be cut from the same
mold as past teams. Strong
pitching, sound defense and an
intense demand for execution
are the trademarks .of this
team from the Bluegrass
State.
The pitching corps will be
led by seniors Craig Martin
(14-3 during sophomore and
junior years) and Tim Wright,
with a 13-4 record.
The hitting will be led by


Post Office. Come and enjoy
all the pancakes you can eat
from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Hot
dogs, hamburgers, soft drinks
and old fashioned ice cream
cones will be sold during the


sale from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00
p.m. Various entertaining
groups will provide music.

Tony Walker, shortstop and
Gary Harpool, the right field-
er. Walker led last year's
team with a .483 average and
has set the basepaths afire
stealing 69 bases in 70 at-
tempts. Harpool is capable of
hitting the long ball for the
Purples as he connected for

supervision of AiC Roger
Overlette, who taught them
about range safety, the work-
ings of the rifle and the four
basic positions, (prone,
kneeling, sifting and stand-
ing). After this, each cadet
was given a rifle, assisted in
sighting it in and then shot
five shots from each of the
four positions. Many, of the
cadets had never shot a rifle
before, but there were still
some very good scores. That
is, except for Bob Lange,
whose target looked as if he

From the High School

.I'nvS


people shot the same target
and ended up arguing over the .
one shot that hit the bulls' eye.
Some people (I won't name
any names) have come to me
complaining that I didn't write
about this or that each week. .
So if anybody has anything
that they want put in the paper
(school news, stories about
spools, etc.), please let me
know about it before the daSr
after the paper comes out. I'm
usually pretty desperate for
something to write about, so
there's little chance of your
item not getting into the
paper.
