"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apclachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-FOURTH YEAR THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1961 PORT ST. JOE. FLORIDA NUMBER 25
Bid Made to Incorporate Mexico Beach
A special committee of five
persons recently appointed to
" look into the various aspects of
Incorporation for .the Mexico
Beach community turned in their
report and opinions Tuesday eve-
ning at a large gathering of busi-
ness men and interested property
owners. The pros and cons of the
question were outlined and the
consensus of opinion of the ma-
jority present was that incorpora-
tion was premature at this time.
After a period of questions and
answers by many attending a mo-
tion. was made for a secret vote
to be cast to see if incorporation
should be pursued. Out of 43
votes cast, 35 were against, sev-
en for and one undecided.
It was felt that incorporation
should wait until the community
had grown some more and that
another year or two would pro-
vide a more appropriate time to
consider this step.
Members of the special com-
mittee were: Richard Fortner,
A. J. Renner, Sam Harmon, Johh
Stokes, and Mrs. Winnie Buck-
George Holland, president of
the Mexico Beach Business As-
sociation, presided over the meet-

The Port St. Joe Volunteer De-
paaitment was alerted at 2:45 a.m.
Saturday morning 'by a fire in the
home of Mr. and 'Mrs. Ross Hudson
of Oak Grove.
The Hudson family had left Fri-
day afternoon to spend the week
end at -their camp on the river. No-
.body was at home when the fire
As -the fire began to make head-
way in .the 'home, it awoke neigh-
bors. who ,turned in the alarm. The.
home wasi completely enveloped in,
flames when -the fire department
arrived onm the -scene.
A lack of water supply in Oak
Grove kept the department's effec-
ti-veness down- to a .defensive fire-
fighting action. Attention was giv-
en to adjoining homes and keeping
the fire from -spreading.
A breezeway and garage attach-
ed ito the burning house was saved
by the 'firemen.

lit's midnight before press day
again but we refuse to hurry. In
fact, we're in open revolt against
this devastating habit of hurry .
It's an enemy that's taking a. big
toll in 'human lives, 'not mentioning
the staggering .cost in dollars andd
cents. Yes, in this writer's opinion
we're making a serious mistake
when we work in a 'hurry, eat in a
hurry, drive in a hurry, shop in a
Ih-urry, talk in a hurry and so
on. No doubt you've heard the say-
ing: "The cemetery is full of folks
Who hurried through life." More
truth than poetry here.
Now, let's 'ask ourselves the
question: Why do we hurry? 'Do we
think it's smart and do we feel
more important? An open and
frank ,answer to this one might be
h-lpful! We have 24 hours in a
day and' that's plenty of time to get
our work done. The average per-
son's job requires only eight to 10
houms ... six 'to eight hours is
enough rest for ,most of us. It ap-
pears the hurrying gets going the
strongest when we really don't
*have anything that must ibe done.
It might be well to take a brief
.period daily 'to organize and'budget
our time. We believe this is a good
way to eliminate a lot of hurry,
confusion and lost motion. Time
and energy are too precious to
waste. (We've heard the comment
that "Haste makes waste" a
good one to remember).
In view of the foregoing we are
in the process of organizing a new
club (the woods are full of them,
anyway!) We will call it "The No
Hurry Club". Since there's no hur-
ry to get this club in operation we
are ,taking a period of silent .medi-
tation before hand. Will you think,
it over and let us have your sug-
gestions? We are willing to pay 25c

May The Congress Preserve Us
A curious notion seems to be gaining acceptance from
the American public irrespective of how they voted last fall
that the Kennedy program will not, after all, cost as much
as people were led to expect.
As that program now emerges, we cannot see that there
is much support for this ever-so-tempered optimism. It is
more likely a case of having become insensible to the arith-
metical significance of billions, and to being stunned by the
gatling-gun tempo of White House orders to Congress.
Extension of unemployment insurance from 26' to 39
weeks, enlargement of social security promises, care for the
aged under social security, medical facilities and training,
assistance to distressed areas and aid to education will cost
an estimated $5.2 billion the first year.
Perhaps you can shrug off these first-year billions. But
don't forget these are destined to be hardy perennials. We
cannot now conceive of their total cost. What is before us
is merely the token down-payment by which we can acquire
these expensive and demoralizing' habits for life-the life of
the nation. And, we are all familiar with what "a small
.down payment" brings on us.
There are in the pattern of such earlier deceptions as
the income tax, which would never (they said) take more
than three percent of our earnings, but now abstracts from
20 to 91 percent of our substance; the social security experi-
ment that originally took one percent of the first $3,000 of
our pay from us and a similar amount from the boss, is now
taking three percent of the first $4,800 and by 1969 will reach
four-and-a-half percent for both worker and employer. And
they will be- as leech-like as the wartime "luxury" excises
and the "temporary" boosts in the gasoline tax.
We have mentioned but a handful of no less than 16
measures on President Kennedy's list of special priority,
"must" legislation. On other fronts-defense,; housing, ur-
ban renewal, etc., the projected Kennedy spending increases,
thusfar revealed are keeping pace with the warnings of ob-
servers at Los Angeles last July. And overall, the socialistic,
paternalistic, Uncle-knows-best fixation is triumphantly
Unless our elected representative- in Washington are
able to call upon some hidden reserve of fortitude and pat-
riotism with which to resist the cynical blandishments 1 of a

The cost of one electron microscope is $35,000. Some of the

scientists, supported by American Cancer Society funds, are
at work searching for the cause of canceg-and, ultimately,
ways to prevent it.

WHY GO TO CHURCH?
By Rev. GEORGE L. MILLER glad tidings to the lost world. That
Why go to church? That depends is how it was in the early days of
upon .who, you are. Nowhree in the church. But because moat be-
scripture dies God bid .the unsaved lievers fail In this responsibility
to go to church. He commands the unsaved can hear little about
them to receive His Son. Life is in God's saving grace unless he does
the Sn. Those who have the Son go to church. 'If you are still with-
have life and they are to take the out Christ then you should go to
church to hear what God commands
____' ____ you. You go to the doctor when
you are sick, to the mechanic when
you have car trouble, to a lawyer
for legal advice. You don't call the
plumber to operate on your child.
Then where God's Word is preach-
,, _ed is the place you should go to
hear God's will for your life.
However, if you have received
Jesus Christ as your own Saviour,
then you should go fto church for
what you can give. The local church
assmebly is a gathering of believ-
ers who offer up to God spiritual
[sacrifices of praise and thanksgiv-
,ing (Heb. 13:15-16). Here we wor-
Iship together with the saints and
sing praises 'to God our 'Father and
the Lord Jesus who redeemdr us. THE STAR, Port St Joe, FIe.
With such sacrifices God is well
pleased and the Father seeks such
to worship Him in spirit and in
truth (John 4.23):
If we are believers we should go
to church for what we can get. We
have fellowship with the Father
and the Son, and with every other
saint. Here God's Spirit takes the
Word and reveals the glories of
our Saviour. Through the Word He
convicts us of our sins and cleans-
es us; here is where God feeds us
and strengthens us. The nwe go
-back into the conflict with the same
world that nailed Him to the cross,
rjeoicing in Christ our Saviour. If
any more reason is needed, we go
to church "because God has com-
manded us 'to go. to 1-hurch (Heb.
10:25). Are you obeying this com-
mand? Whether youi come to hear,
or to give, or to get,-give God a
chance, see you in Church Sunday.

by a large number of our younger
'On a strictly volunteer basis,
each of these students of Mr. Her-

talent .to help 'solemnize ithe ma-
yor's dedication of this memorial
for which the 'many friends of Vic-

music 'of our national hymn and
an-them admirably represented
these juAnor citizens, not ,only by
the importance of music for such
an occasion, but moreover by their
conspicuous spirit of civic concern
The sympathy and substance
turned for years to their training

School Teachers Assemble
For Annual Meeting of FEA
TATTAHASSEE--The big push for teacher pay raises gets underway in Jacksonville

That's when some 8,000 to 10,000 schoolteachers and school administrators assemble
