The Commission discussed the
street paving which will begin in
Port St. Joe soon under the County
Secondary Road Fund Bond Issue.
Most of the problems from the
future paving were in the Fi.rsc
.Street 'area. -
One problem was that a corner of
Mrs. H. E. Rich's home was ov-
+r the Street right-of-way -line. Ma-
yor Sharit said thalt he 'had discus-
sed the matter with t.heo contractor,
George G. Tapiper and 'reported th'tt
Tapper will work around the home
'without distuTbing it.
The ,most 'pressing problem for
,the City in- this project ,is a .sewer
line. One of the City's main .sewer
lines runs down th.e ,middle of the
street right 'otf way. One stretch of
about 500 feet lies in much that
must be excavated for the road beid.
The muck must 'be .excavated for a
dIepth of 10 feet, which is consider-
ably bellow the sewer Hine. This will
necessitate moving the line.

ment with .the contractor, Tapper

Rotarians Told of
E. W. Clarno of Fort Walton
Beach 'presented an interesting pro-
gram to the Rotary Club last 'Thuirs-
day when he 'talked of ithe history
of Indian tribes in Northwest Flor-
ida from a period 'dating back to
15,000 years before Christ.
Clarno, an 'amateur anthropolo-
gist has relics dating back to more
than 5,000 years BC offering evi-
dence of the civilization the In-
dians 'had who lived in this area.
Clarno declared that the ancient
Indian, like the modern white man'
came to this area in the summer
time to enjoy the beaches, balmy
breezes land the 'shell fish eating.
Olarno broke the 'civilization eras
down to 'three definite phases in,
his talk. The first relics of civiliza-
tion 'have been carbon dated' 'back
to 15,000 BC. a'nd are composed of
weapons and tools'. He said the In-
,dians. didn't begin to make pottery
until around 5,000 BC. He said, that
apparently the Indians were rough
on dishes as 'diggings in this vicin-
ity have produced mound's of ibrok-
en 'pottery. He said a whole dish
has 'never ,been found. Just before
discarding a bowl 'the Indians would
knock a hole in the bottom so it
would not hold 'evil 'spirits and then
threw it 'away.
The Indians artistry was amaz-
ing, according to Clarno since the
Indian's waking hours -was absorb-
.ed in ithe never-ending hqnt for
food. Hunting the 'day's meal was
am every-day 'chore and, took most
of 'the Indian's time.
Cl'arno said this area was con-
sidered to 'be thickly populated at
the 'time. He said there were only
about 25,000 Indians in -all of Flor-
ida and most of *the ancient signs
have been found in Northwest
Clarno showed several specimens
'of the ancient Indian bowls that he
had found pieces to and put 'back
together. Some of the work was
---- very decorative and one water 'pit-

Let's Make Our First Impression Good
A book is known by its cover -- a man by his appear-
ance -- a politician by his handshake -- a dog by 'his bite --
a car by its shine -- a 'house by its new coat of paint.
First impressions and visible impressions mean an awful
lot to most people. The first glance of any object, person or
place usually forms a first opinion that is 'hard if not impossible
k to change.
We invite you to take a look at the first impression the
City of Port St. Joe has to offer for its .first-time visitors. Would
you call this the welcome into a growing industrial City in
the middle of Florida's fabulous "Big Bend"? Hardly.
People tell us that we never notice what is in our own
back yard. This editor didn't particularly notice these signs
welcoming strangers to our City until the day we returned from
vacation. We were glad to get back home. This enthusiasm
at getting back home caused us to notice the sign that officially
welcomed us to Port St. Joe. As the old fellow said, "our eyes
were opened". -i .. l .
Although it makes no difference which of the signs on
the three entrances to the City you examine, each is in a simi-
lar state of disrepair. This particular sign that we have pictured
is on the Wewahitchka Highway. This particular sign has been
shot full of holes, it is rusted and the paint is faded out.
Certainly we need to focus our attention on the weightier
problems in our City, but we should not, under any circum-
stances, forget to maintain the official welcome sign to the City
of Port St.- Joe. That first impression might decide a potential
citizen or customer to take his influence or business elsewhere.
A Note of Appreciation
The Star offers fifteen silent Rah's for-John T. Simpson.
(If you can imagine a silent Rahl)
A man who will, give up his vacation each and every year
and take on the responsibility of having anywhere from a dozen
to three dozen boys under his wing during this time when he'
ought to be relaxing, deserves more than a fair amount of praise
from his fellow townsmen.
His latest journey to Colorado Springs, Colo.,, taking 18
local boys on the Boy Scout National Jamboree is but an ex-
ample of the-time that he takes up with this group of boys. We
must remember that the time he takes up with them is his lei-
sure time -- time that most of us are loathe to give up for
anybody or any cause.
Were it not for this adult leader we hardly think that this
many boys from Port St. Joe would have had the opportunity
for the experience those Scouts had who went to the Jamboree.
It was John's interest in the boys that made him first to file
applications for local Scouts, making sure that all who wanted
could go. It was his planning and energy that did the many
details necessary for lining up the trip and making reservations
all along the line to see to the boys safety and comfort. It was
his sense of concern by the parents that prompted him to use
every opportunity to let the parents know every day that all the
boys were well, that they were having a good time and were
not homesick. The accomplishment of warding off homesick-
ness, was in our book the greatest.
It was a wonderful experience for the boys and it was
an unselfish sacrifice on the part of John T. Simpson to make
the opportunity available and we, personally, offer him our
A good example of what we need in this town citi-
zens who do more and talk less.
Steadiness, the Best Course
During the depression there was a wry saying that "a
banker is a man who will lend you money if you can prove
you don't need it." The Federal Reserve Board has reduced
the margin requirements on stock from 90 per cent to 70 per
cent largely on the theory, apparently, that the credit privilege
thus permitted will not be too widely used.
Actually this is more sensible than sardonic. If the change
had been made six months or a year ago, it might have added
fuel to an improbably rising market especially in "glamour"
stocks. Now that the market has taken a more sedate, not to
say lackadaisical, pace the effect may be to lend a bit of useful
For some time it has been incongruous that a person
could buy anything from a house to a vacation trip for about
one tenth down but had to put nine tenths cash on the line to
hold shares in one of the nation's soundest corporations. Now,
however, the managers of the monetary system are said to be
more concerned about a possible deflationary tendency than
about the likelihood of further inflation.
This accords with the account of one business magazine
that. although consumer buying and the gross national product
continue relatively strong, businessmen have difficulty in feel-
ing completely confident as against sporadic predictions of a
- recession in 1961. One reason may be that the swings of econ-
omic activity now are less dramatic than in earlier postwar cy-
cles and it is hard to get used to the feel of merely gradual
Yet steadiness in the economic curve is preferable to

St. Joe. To say that it is in a bad state of thing that could be refurbished to greatly add
repair is deplorable. The sign is less than ade- to the favorable advertising of our city. Two

sharp ups and downs. The fact that the New York Herald Tri-
bune's index of general business activity has declined for four
straight weeks is rather disturbing. T'ms does not suggest that
bankers should make business loans which the borrowers might
later wish they had not been granted but it helps to explain a
greater recent willingness on the part of the "Fed" to put funds
at commercial banks' disposal for the use of business.

The employer should dthen copy

The official report of recoveries

ot anoney returned Into the county

Claims for compensation, widow's
pension, education and training are
some of the benefits which are rep-
resented in monies recovered.
Raymond D. Moon, president of
-the C'ounty Service Officer's Assoc-
iation of Florida has compliment-
ed Service Officer J. J. Hill of Gulf
County for having had such a suc-
oessu l year. Th veterans, widows
and orphan's of Golf county have
been enriched by your most 'valu-
able services to them, Moon said.
All County Serice Officers are
urged to undertake a concerted
drive ito locate al widows and or-
p'hans in, hteir county wwho have be-
come eligible for pension benefits
under PL 86-211, effective July 1,
1960. These persons were not pre-
viously titled for pension under
the old law. The number one job
of' tll County Service Officers As-
sociation members this year is to
locate every widow 'and or orphan
child iand assist them in securing
thedr benefits, Mr. Moon stated.
The general public is asked to a's-
sist in this. effort. Persons knowing
of eases where the widow and or
child of a deceased veteran has
been denied a claim for pension in I
the past because of the provisions
of the old pension laws should ad-
wvise that person or persons to con-
tact J. J. Hill, Gulf County Service
Officer Iby phone at BAll 7-8681 or
call at the County Service Officers'
office located, at 104_. Bayview
Drive in Highland View or assist-
anoce in iling -of their claim.
Even' though. a widow who is not
married or 'a minor child was de-
nteds a pension several years ago,
the new law makes provision's for
re-opening their claim. They may
now 'be eligible for benefits.
