Port St. Joe shows about $200,-
000 increase in 1960 over 1959.
This increase in building is in
the face of a year of cut-back

the greater share of Port St.
Joe citizen's income.
City Auditor and Clerk, R. W.
Henderson told The Star yester-

have been built in Port St. Joe
during the past year at a value of
$516,100. (It will be noted that

Jaycees Build Float
Port St. Joe's Jaycees are in the
process of constructing a float to
enter in the Governor's inaugural
parade on January 3 in Tallahas-
The Jaycees 'have been working
for a week on the framework for
,the float in the Port St. Joe High
School manual arts shop. Construc-
tion is now nearly complete with
the finishing touches expected to
be ,put on the float this week end.
The float will feature a full size
replica of the Constitution Conven-
tion Monument located in Consti-
tution. Park here in Port St. Joe.
Measurements were made of the
monument surfaces and' the float
is being constructed exactly to the
measurement of the Monument.
Lettering on the float will boost
Port St. Joe and Gulf County for
the industrial, tourist and sports-
man's center that it is.
Jaycee Don Grossman is in
charge of the float project with
Jaycee Wade Barrier, Jr., in
charge of the construction.
Upon completion, the float will
be pulled to Tallahassee on a trac-
tor-trailer being furnished the Jay-
cees by Walter Duren. The Jaycees

that much remodeling and home
repairs and changes are not re-
ported to the City Hall by means
of a building permit. According
to estimates, this figure is about:
one-third of actual work done ii
this category. Clerk Henderson
pointed out too, that building per-

includes a permit for $10,000 to
the Faith Bible Church for new
construction and $2,000.00 to the
Zion Fair Church for remodeling.
All in all Port St. Joe, through
its building permits purchased,
had a growth of $641,350.00 in
new construction and enlarge-
ment during the past year.

A member of the Ministerial

purpose of the crusade is more
than mere attendance which is
only a means to a more worthy
objective. The main objective is
to have more and more of our
citizens attending worship ser-
vices and receiving religious in-
struction in order that there may
be a greater and more positive
faith, in God ultimately resulting
in more .obedience to His will.

VITAL STATISTICS ARE
Vital statistics deal with the
records of births, deaths, dis-
eases, and .the geographical dis-
tribution snd physical environ-
ment of mankind. Many peoples,
the ancient Hebrews and Ro-
mans for instance, kept records
of their -population by census.
Births were being counted dur-
ing the second century A.D. and
data regarding deaths became of
interest to the public in the Mid-
dle Ages. i
The first -law, requiring the re-
porting of deaths was passed in
London in 1592. In 1693, the
city f' Breslau' 'Germany, comn-
* piled vital statistics to show'the
proportion of men able to bear
arms and to estimate death
'rates. As early as 1632, the
-Grand Assembly of Virginia re-
quired ministers or wardens
from every parish, to provide
each year a register of christen-
ings, marriages, and burials. In
the year of 1815, there were
some four cities in the United
States keeping death records. In
184,' Massachusetts passed the
first modern registration law.
When the American Medical
Association was organized in
Philadelphia in 1847, it appoint-
ed a committee/to study ways
and means of improving the
registration of births, deaths and
marritages. Physicians through-
out the country were urged by
the association to request their
states to establish officers for
the collection of vital statistics.
Statistics are important-espe-
cially in public health-to show
what conditions prevail and to
check on the results of work
done. The Bureau of Vital Sta-
tistics of the Florida State Board
of Health is one of the most ac-
tive and important units in our
state health organization.
