Sharks Add Tigers' Scalp To Their Belt
The St. Joe Sharks breezed past
the Graceville Tigers 33-7 as coach
Marion Craig emptied the bench.
The Sharks were below strength
considerably with several key play-
ers out with injury or flu but the
Sharks had no trouble in gaining
their third victory of the season.
The -Sharks, without the services
of their fullback Wayne Taylor,
scored in three minutes of the first
quarter as Jackie Mitchell scored
on a line buck from the three. Tay- -
lor, used for kicking only, added b
the extra point. The Sharks scored d
again as they capitalized on a
blocked punt by Larry Mansfield
on Graceville's 35. Jackie Mitcheli
went on to score again from five
The next Shark score, thanks to
a recovered fumble on Graceville's
five-yard line by Larry Mansfif!d,
who played a whale of a game, was
added by Ronnie Young who dash-
ed across from the one yard line.

and the Sharks led 20-0 at the end

Chester Dedell of Pensacola, a
public relations man and a member
of the Florida Forestry Board ap-
peared before the Port St. Joe
Chamber of Commerce Board of
'Directors. Tuesday to offer a plan
of promoting Northwest Florida.
Mr. 'Dedell was advocating a ga-
thering of the combined efforts of
the entire section of Northwest
Florida form the St. Marks River
west to the 'State line, to act as
sort of a Chamber of Commerce for
Dedell reported that he was only
"feeling the pulse" of the area for
his proposal at this time and would
probably call a meeting some time
in December of the area to further
discuss the matter.
He urged that the Chamber take
the matter into consideration and
push the idea in. Gulf County to
find out if the whole of Gulf Coun-
ty would join in such a scheme.
Plans for the activity of such an
organization were roughly present-
ed by Dedell. He told the Board
that such an organization would
have as their main objective the
selling" of Northwest Florida to
future tourists, residents and pri-
marily, new industries. He had pre-
pared some of the more important
statistics of the aroa and presented
,them 'before the Board.
For the industrial argument, this
arda contains an' abundance of ma-
terial for productss derived from the
pine tree. He said that there were
around savei. million acres in pines
in the .17. county area. The area is
hoheycombed with main highway
arteries, major railroad connec-
tions with all parts; of the' nation
and an abundance of water' trans-
portation. The area also has three
excellent ports in Port St. Joe. Pan-
ama City and Pensacola.
Dedell said that although the
residents of 'the area are familiar
with its activities and potential in
agriculture, forestry and industry,
those who may, help develop these
resources do not know it.
'He is pushing the formation of
this organization to advertise the
advantages of Northwest Florida
where it will do the most good and
to help promote the several activi-
ties that are conducted in the area
annually that tourists would be in-
terested in. These activities include
such as the Apalachicola River-

Let's Get What Belongs To Us
It would appear to the casual observer that Port St. Joe
-is doing its dead-level best to treat Gulf County like the
United States treats the remainder of the world. That is to say,
it looks as if Port St. Joe is keeping up her role of majority tax
payer and is also gracefully standing by and taking pittance
handouts in county services.
We have had this on our mind for some time, and the ac-
tion of the school board last week made us take the step to say
something about it.
We will use this instance just mentioned to begin with. As
you read last week in The Star that the School Board had re-
fused to install some new bleachers on the football field in one
breath and left the Wewahitchka school room for hope on a
request for more seating in their gymnasium. We are not be-
grudging Wewa their additional seats. They probably need
them, and from reports of the amount of money in the budget
that the seating would come from the finances are available.
Then you take the instance of the installation of lights on
the football field. That little project turned into more than an
incident. It took an act of the Legislature to get the lights. And
then on'the other hand Wewahitchka then applied for lights on
an athletic field not even on school property with the view in
mind of maybe fielding a football team one of these days. The
lights were installed without having to resort to the Legislature.
The field has only been used for the town baseball team to play
on hardly a school activity. Again we don't begrudge Wewa
of their good fortune. We are only bemoaning the fact that the
representatives from this end of the County won't stand up for
our rights and get us what we deserve as supporters of 90 per
cent of the county budget (more or less).
And then you take the county. That portion of the county
North and East of the Intracoastal Canal has received well over
the lion's share of the secondary road fund for the past several
years. Since 1952, when we returned to Port St. Joe, we have
seen two short streets in the colored section of town, the extension
of Garrison Avenue for about a half mile and Long Avenue re-
surfaced from secondary road funds.
We can't believe it's because our roads are in such good
shape. A trip over most of the roads in the city will convince
most anyone that practically all of them need resurfacing.
Again, we say we do not blame Wewahitchka for getting
these services. We just wish we could. We sincerely urge all
of our county representatives in these two bodies to stand up on
their hind legs and howl for what is ours.
At the present time, it would us no -amount of good for
some of you people to "howl" a little for those bleachers at the
football stadium. There is no sense in this being the only field
in the conference where our visitors and some of our homefolks
have to stand to watch the game.
A Matter of Etiquette
Practically everybody has looked at the explosive segrega-
tion vs. integration situation with the "we don't want 'em" and
"we want to go to school with the whites attitude".
But has anybody looked at it from the standpoint of just
observing good manners. Respecting the feelings of our neigh-
bors no matter what their color.
Who among us would go to any theatre, church, business
house, cafe, lodge meeting or even school where we were not
If you say you would, you are guilty of one of the worst
social boners. It is our opinion that to turn up at a place where
it is evident you are not wanted is one of the worst sins one can
commit against his fellow man.
Yet, this is what the colored race is trying to do in isolated
places. We don't think he will be accepted as an equal in any
phase by forcing himself on others. Nobody has been able to do
so yet, so why should the Negro be any exception.
We don't feel nearly so hard toward the Supreme Court
for trying to make a name for themselves by making a decision
that goes against the way of things for years as we do for theit
coldhearted dissolusionment of an entire race. They have led
the Negro to believe, that just because they have said so, all a
Negro has to do is to walk in anywhere and he will be accepted
- just because the Supreme Court has said he could.
That's like telling your child he can have a piece of candy
and then refusing him the money to buy it with.
We think if the Supreme Court is going to take it upon
themselves to see that everyone in the Nation has the same thing
(which is just what Communism is based on) then he should
heed the cry of dedicated workers who have been trying for
years to better the lot of the American Indian. Who, incidentally
are penned up together on reservations existing on government
handouts. The only native American penned up like a hound
Other races have made their own way without the help of
the Supreme Court. They relied on their own resourcefulness
to get ahead in the world. We give for example the Chinese, the
Jews (who are persecuted universally), Italians, Germans, Dutch-
men and many others.
We believe the Negro would be happier with his advances
and certainly his neighbors would be happier, if he just went
ahead gaining his place in the world with his own sweat and let
the poor overworked Supreme Court and Ike enjoy their weekly
vacations once a month without all this bother.
We don't believe the Supreme Court helped Booker T.
Washington or George Washington Carver (both 'persecuted' as
the Northerners say, Southern Negroes). They made the top.
If they can do it anybody can.
