Predict 29 Will

Die Over Holiday
There may be 29 fewer people who will return home alive
after the four-day Thanksgiving holiday period which started
Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol in a
news release this week.
"The countdown begins at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday;
November 22 and ends 12:00 midnight, Sunday, November
26", reports Colonel Eldridge Beach, Patrol director.
Last year there were 23 fatalities; however, the three
previous years averaged -29.
The warning comes on the heels of a move last week by
Governor Reubin Askew to require law enforcement officers
throughout the state to strictly enforce the 55 miles per hour
speed limit law. The new limits,were specified during the fuel
crisis to conserve gasoline and has been extended when it
was realized how the slower speed limit was affecting the
traffic fatality rate by driving it down drastically.

Gulf County has been fortunate enough to experience
'only one traffic fatality thus far in the year of 1978. Gulf
usually averages around seven to eight highway deaths
in a year. Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy said his men
"in ,: will be strictly enforcing the speed limit in the county
.';. i over the holidays, along with the Highway Patrol to
help prevent any further traffic deaths during the year.
The Thanksgiving holiday period produces some of the
heaviest traffic of the year. Especially during the first and
last day of the four-day period.
Motorists are urged by the Patrol to plan their trip so
they will miss the heaviest flow of traffic. Getting home
before Sunday afternoon will help.
"Some proven ways to reduce the chance of becoming a
statistic are driving 55 miles per hour, not drinking alcohol,
following at a safe distance and using a seat belt," concluded
Colonel Beach.

I The first Thanksgiving Day, of

country. Following a winter of
tremendous hardship, Pilgrim Gov.
William Bradford in the autumn of
1621 ordered a three-day festival to
celebrate a life-sustaining harvest.
"Our harvest being gotten' in,"
wrote Edward Winslow in a letter of
December 11, 1921, "our Governor
sent four men on fowling, that so we
might after a more special manner
rejoice together, after we had
gathered the fruit of our labours."
Despite this early beginning,
shared with some 90 neighboring
Indians, Thanksgiving Day was not
celebrated throughout the United
States as a regular national holiday
uritif it was so proclaimed by
President Lincoln on November 26,
1863. Since that time, it has been
celebrated annually and has become
a cherished American tradition.
Our hope this year is that you
will join with us in thanking a
generous and merciful God for the
blessings of liberty and abundance
in which we continue to share. And
may you have a Happy Thanksgiv-

Makes Good Sense

The people of Florida have said,
emphatically, they wish to keep
their elected cabinet. There will
Surely be attempts in the future,
however, to again abolish the cabi-
net form of government, placing
control solely in the hands of the
governor, whoever he might be.
In writing recently in favor of
the elected cabinet, former Chief
Justice of the Florida Supreme
Court, Justice B. K. Roberts, who
was also a member of the Constitu-
tional Revision Committee, said:
'When the commission organized,
former Gov. Millard F. Caldwell
sagely advised the greatest service
we could perform would be to
adjourn sine die that day: to pack
our bags and go home. The commis-
esion chose not to heed Governor

Caldwell, but 10 months and half a
million dollars later, I was con-
vinced that he was right and the
commission was wrong."
Justice Roberts said that when
he was on the Supreme Court, the
judgment of the seven members was
utilized in making all decisions. He
said, "As a justice, I found comfort
in the fact that possible errors of
judgment by me were subject to the
review and correction by my six
independent, elected colleagues. I
never for a moment found their
looking over my shoulder to be a

good sense, in supporting the main-
tenance of the cabinet system of
government in Florida.

THEY'RE HAVING a big to-do over in
Wakulla County about who won the County Judge
race. Incumbent Judge Evelyn Flack lost to
Mike Carter by two votes. When the machine
ballots were counted, Judge Flack had won
re-election by two votes. When the approximate-
ly 180 absentee votes had been counted, Judge
Flack had lost her bid for re-election by the same
two vote margin.
Now Judge Flack's attorneys are challeng-
ing the absentee vote and asking that all the
absentee ballots be thrown out and Judge Flack
be declared the winner.
It seems that every time there is a close
election in Florida, the first thing the loser points
to, claiming error, is to the absentee vote.
Is there something wrong with our absentee
voting system which allows so much suspicion of
error to abound? Is it all that shabbily
conducted, that ballots can be thrown out right
and left as they are always done when counting
at the vote canvass? If the election is close, both
sides carefully examine every absentee vote
cast. I read last week somewhere that an
absentee ballot was thrown out because an
individualist had marked his ballot with an "H"
rather than an "X" as indicated in the
instructions. That seemed a little far-fetched to
me, since it was evident by the placement of the
"H" whom the voter wished to cast his ballot for.
I think that is the purpose of the absentee ballot.
The only reason absentee ballots are used is
to allow those who will not be in their voting
place of residence on election day to cast his
ballot. Also, it allows bed-ridden people to vote.
In these days of 50, and 60 percent turn-outs
on election day, it doesn't seem proper to me that
we should aim at the absentee ballot as much as
we do. It would be discouraging to me to go to all
the trouble to vote an absentee ballot just to have
someone throw it out because the pencil had
slipped in the margin or at the bottom and made
a little mark which wasn't supposed to be there,
or because the tail of one of my voting marks
happened to extend a centimeter beyond the
confines of the box printed on the ballot for

marking in.
It seems like a good idea to me for the State
of Florida to take a good look at its absentee
ballot voting procedures and see if they can be
made simple'to understand by the voter and
prevent them from being the constant victim of
nit-picking vote counters who don't want them
counted just because they don't happen to be in
their favor.

stepped down from his office last week and gave
his farewell press conference. Shevin, who had a
no-holds-barred campaign with Robert Graham
for the office of Governor commented on the
expense of running for this high office.
Shevin said the Governor's race cost the
candidates a total of $10 million. That's a healthy
piece of change, even during these days of the
cheap dollar.
Mr. Shevin made a statement, which went
something like this: "The trend of political
spending threatens to put high office out of the
reach of most citizens."
That's the understatement of the year.

PRESIDENT CARTER'S call for price
and wage increase restraint to help in the battle
against inflation and the declining value of the
dollar didn't go over too well with some people.
George Meany, head union man in the nation,
was one of the first to say it wouldn't work.
Meany was joined in his feeling by many others,
who felt volunteer restraints wouldn't work,
recognized a need for restraint but still didn't
want mandatory controls. How's that for a
True, President Carter's call for voluntary
restraints probably won't work. Cutting back is
always what we expect others to do, but our own
price or wage increase is necessary to our
A statement hit the news last week which I
believe will work in slowing down the economy
and thus the inflation rate. The scare has been
thrown at us as a weapon to cool things off.
One of President Carter's treasury officials
made the statement last week that if the present
trend continues, the nation can expect to find
itself in a depression within a short while. It has
been a long time since the depression hit this
nation during the 1930's, but there has been a
concerted effort by those who remember it to
keep that memory alive and well nourished.
If the voluntary guidelines don't work, the
threat of depression should do the trick.

Church Histories Dating to 1894

Told to DAR at November Meeting

At the luncheon meeting of
the St. Joseph Bay chapter,
Daughters of the American
Revolution held last Wednes-
day in the Garden Center on
Eighth Street, a most interest-
ing program was presented by
Mrs. Charles Brown, vice
regent and program chair-
man, on the history of several
old churches in this area.
The first speaker, Mrs. Max
Kilbourn of Wewahitchka,
discussed the St. John the
Baptist Episcopal Church
which was incorporated No-
vember 26, 1903, in that city.
Constructed of lumber which
is no longer available, the
building suffered severe dam-
ages on three occasions: in the
30's by lightning, in the 40's by
arson and again by fire in the
60's when it was struck by an
automobile. The church was-
built by Francis C. Rummel
who was born in Bohemia and
brought to Wewahitchka from
.Augusta, Georgia by Dr. John
Keyes, one of Wewa's earliest
citizens. Prominent among
the early members were the
Dawsons, the Pierrongs, the
Spanns, the Richards, and the
Shippeys. Mrs. Jesse Shippey
Cox, now living with her
daughter in Silver Springs,
Md., is the only living descen-
dent of the earliest member-
From 1894 (when the mis-
sion was established) to 1942

the old Wewahitchka Church
was served by clergy from
Apalachicola and later Mar-
ianna. Membership dropped,
and the building was sold to
the Presbyterians for $500.00.
After St. John's was reorgan-
ized in the early 50's, both
Presbyterians and Episcopal-
ians have used the building.
St. James Church in Port St.
Joe has helped in supporting
the mission and Rev. Sidney
Ellis serves the church once
each month.
Trinity Eipscopal Church in
Apalachicola, as related by
one of its members, Mrs. V. I.
Hoffman, Jr., was incorporat-
ed by Governor Keith Call,
Feb. 11, 1836. Apalachicola
was within the boundary of the
"Forbes Purchase". This
beautiful old church included
a gallery for slaves which was
always filled to capacity. The
old organ, installed in 1840,
was used until 1920 when the
Pilcher organ was purchased.
In 1974-75, the old organ was
restored and is now in use and
can be played manually or by
hand. At the time of installa-
tion this was one of two organs
in the state. Trinity Church is
well-built, well-kept, and is
air-conditioned. The ceiling
remains the same, as does the
lettering on the front of the

City, is one of 14 members of
the Moss Hill Church between
Chipley and Vernon. This
small, rustic, moss-covered
Methodist Church was estab-
lished as a mission in 1823, two
years before Washington
County was created. A stage
coach trail passed the church,
which was built by slaves and
which has hand and foot prints
on the ceiling, placed on the
boards by children before they
were installed. In 1861 the
church record was signed by
A. Lincoln.
Today's Moss Hill Church

has an outdoor privy and
members have trouble with
people stealing their gas tanks
and heaters. Numerous fam-
ilies hold reunions there.
Small though it is, this church
participates fully in the Me-
thodist program.
Guests at the November
meeting besides Mrs. Reppen
were Mrs. H. R. Haley, her
sister, also a member of Moss
Hill and Mrs. Ollie T. Ship-
man. Hostesses were Mrs. W.

Instituted at High School

Port St. Joe High School is
continuing its efforts to con-
tribute to and improve the
community; one of its more
recent contributions being the
Work Experience Program.
WEP means relevance for
students in Florida schools, as
it intrbduces students to
-meaningful work; and future
;careers. Providing counseling
and career guidance, WEP,
I"aches responsibility, speci-
ic work skills, and pride in
achievement. WEP forges
strong links between the stu-
dent and his community, for
both the present and the.
future. It gives them direction
and helps them to discover
themselves., In a word, WEP,
means practicality in educa-
tio '" .- D
Z e advantages to the stu-
dent are obvious, but what are
the other advantages? Firstly,
to the businessman, WEP
means a steady supply of
trained, dependable workers,
as well as a chance to partici-
pate in the education process.
Interaction between busi-
ness and school builds good

To Loan You Money

Bl-Om For our Biiisile.s Ie itnhui F'rn m BILn,,.Uile..'s Thai l ld (leni-last I )tu-r BiuL,iilt',

A new trend has been developed that makes investment money available on businesses like yours FROM lenders
and investors that relate to businesses such as yours. Small and large companies alike are becoming reluctant to ob-
tain expansion, investment and venture capital from lending institutions that will talk in their terms only.
Now, WORLDWIDE FINANCE EXCHANGE is providing a new concept in exposing you to new sources of capital that
know and understand your business requirements. They talk money-to you on YOUR terms!

Four Basic Categories,
More than 1,100 investment capital-heavy companies
throughout the nation have been brought together by
WORLDWIDE FINANCE that want to loan or invest money in
four basic areas of business:

Long term & intermediate lending
for general business expansion
Oil & gas development'
Energy sources development
Electronic development
Shopping centers
Housing developments
Recreational facilities
Business & office complexes
Mobile home parks
Nursing homes
Medical institutions

These four categories over a broad spectrum of busi-
ness interests that represent loaning power into the bil-
lions of dollars. Loans from a few hundred dollars to
long-term arrangements amounting to multi-million dollar
agreements are available from interested individuals and
companies who want to help you meet your growth and
financial desires. In fact, in many transactions the bigger
the loan requirement, the more attention you will demand.

How You Find These Investors
WORLDWIDE FINANCE has been years in developing
four portfolios of companies ready and willing to talk with
you immediately about your financial requirements. These
specialized portfolios contain names, companies, respon-
sible persons, range of lending or investing power and
most instances specific areas of business activities.
If your financial requirements are specifically suited to
just one or more of the four general categories, send for
that portfolio and allow it to open a new world of financial
growth power for your business ventures. YOU choose the
potential source of lending activities.

Thanksgiving Not Always For The Birds
With the rising cost of the traditional bird of the holiday
season, why not start a new tradition? Seafood fills the bill of
fare with an air of celebration reminiscent of Thanksgivings
past but with a budget-sense of today.
Fish fillets are moist and rich in flavor topped with a
savory sauce created from pineapple bits and fresh cran-
berries. The result is an entree that is as appealing to the eye
as it is to the palate.
The delectable Fish Fillets with Cranberry Pineapple
Sauce requires only a brief baking time, allowing more time
to be spent with family and friends during this time of giving
Serve Green Rice as an accompaniment. The resulting dish
is unique and lends epicurean flare to the holiday menu.
2 pounds thick fish fillets, 1 tablespoon cornstarch
: fresh or frozen le can (1312 ounces) pineapple
1 teaspoon salt tidbits Water
2 tablespoons melted margarine or butter 1 cup fresh cran
1 tablespoon lemon juice berries
One-third cup sugar Green rice
Thaw fish if frozen. Cut fillets into 6 portions. Arrange fish
in shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with salt. Drizzle with
margarine and lemon juice. Bake in moderate oven, 350
degrees F., for 25 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily
when tested with a fork. Combine sugar and cornstarch.
Drain pineapple tidbits; save juice and add water as needed
to make 1 cup liquid. Add liquid to cornstarch mixture and
stir until free of lumps. Cook until thickened, stirring con-
stantly. Add cranberries; cook about 5 minutes or until
cranberry skins pop. Stir in pineapple tidbits; heat. Serve
fish with sauce and rice. Makes 6 servings.

An appetizing, convenient dish is Sausage Egg Brunch.
Because this special dish is combined the day before and re-
frigerated overnight, brunch becomes a breeze to serve.
The layered casserole begins with torn bread pieces. Fully
cooked brown 'n serve sausage links, any of the eight avail-
able flavors, cut into thirds come next. Shredded cheese is
sprinkled over the sausage. Slightly beaten eggs combined with
milk and seasoned with a little dry mustard are poured in last.
This easy-to-combine casserole is then covered and refrigerated
Next day the casserole is baked while the fruit and a green
vegetable are prepared and the table is set. This colorful,
satisfying meal whether served for brunch or supper is
nutritious and delicious, too.
