Proposed Budget Hikes Millage By
25 Percent Over Last Year's Levy
In a budget session held Tuesday night at the Court
House in Wewahitchka, the Gulf County Board of Commis-
sioners tentatively set Gulf's new budget at 16.6 mills for
the coming year. This amounts to a 3.6 hike over last year's
budget which required 13 mills in taxes to finance. The new
budget as drawn Tuesday night is only tentative thus far.

TEETHING TRYING TIME
Teething time is a trying time
for many mothers. Baby's first
teeth usually appear between the
sixth and eighth month of life.
When no teeth appear by the
eighth or ninth month there
sometimes is a suspicion of
No one knows just what de-
termines the time for appear-
ance of baby's teeth. Actually,
teeth are already formed in the
jaw when the baby is born.
Most children get their first
teeth without undue trouble.
Teething has been blamed, how-
ever, for a great many condi-
tions including constipation,
diarrhea, coughs, fevers and
convulsions. It is debatable if
any of these conditions are
caused by teething.
Teething is a natural al-
though sometimes uncomforta-
ble process. The infant may
have discomfort in his gums be-
cause of pressure of the teeth.
His appetite and digestion may
become upset and he may sleep
fitfully. To relieve his sore
gums, many physicians will ad-
vise that he be given a teething
ring or a hard crust of bread to
bite on. In extreme instances,
when the teeth do not come
through, the doctor may decide
to lance the gums. If the teeth
are near the surface, the gums
often can be gently rubbed until
the teeth come through.
To have sound teeth, the in-
fant should have a proper diet.
Milk, eggs, cod liver oil, vege-
tables and fish, in proper bal-
ance will do much to make good,
strong, healthy teeth. Your phy-
sician is the person best quali-
fied to advise you concerning
your baby's diet.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1961
Frills Should Be Erased In County Budget
In conjunction with our plea of last week for a frugal
handling of county budget allowances, we would like to go
a step farther this week and urge that the County at least
hold the line on village levied. The reason, is of course, ob-
vious, what with better than two years of adverse financial
conditions in Gulf County. Present tax-payers have a lot of
catching up to do.
In looking back over the files of The Star, we find that
the County Board hiked the village slightly last year to
levy 13 mills. These 13 mills brought in a total of $165,869.00
in tax revenue. The county received $449,802.00 from other
sources such as race track funds, fines, fees, etc., to round out
a budget of $507,582.00 for last year.
It might be noted that last year $726.917 in additional,
property was placed on the rolls. $449,802 of this increase
was due to new property placed on the rolls. The remainder
of the increase was due to a hike in valuation of present pro-
perties on the roll.
This year, the tax assessor has hiked all properties on
the tax rolls by some 20 percent in order to provide more
money for the Gulf County system. The county will need
more money this year in order to participate in the program
for the schools (teacher raises, etc.,) as set forth by the
last session of the legislature. The tax payers will feel an
extra tug at their pocketbooks this year in order to meet this
This year's hike in taxable property amounts to 1.3 mil-
lion dollars over last year. This is an increase to the value
of property of present tax-payers. Tax assessor Samuel A.
Patrick said that "a few" more tax payers went on the roll
as a result in the valuation increase.
Since the "same select few" will be asked to ante up the
extra cash needed by the schools, it is our opinion that it
would be only fair for the County Board to set a dollar limit
of $165,869.00 for taxes received from Gulf tax payers on
their budget fipr the year. This, in effect, will- reduce the
village levied. A mill will now be worth more in Gulf Coun-
ty as the result of the valuation hike. The freeze on the
amount of money .to be extracted from the tax payer this
year, would sit mighty pretty with these people.
The County Board has been approached for many ser-
vices and requests not now performed by the County. All the
requests were worthy. We do not argue their merits. Beu
we stand firm in the belief that the county should allot their
money on a priority basis. Provide money for the necessi-
ties, and then stretch what is left over as many luxuries as
the balance will cover.
We don't envy the Board one minute, their job of draw-
ing up a reasonable budget which will meet the county's fi-
nancial needs without being a burden upon the taxpayers.
Sovereign Will of South Is Violated
Having held their initial planning session at Jackson,
Miss., to formulate a stand on the states' rights issue, the
representatives of eight Southern states have announced an-
other meeting to be convened within the next 60 days to
strengthen their position for the preservation of Constitu-
The next parley is to be held in the first capital of the
old Confederacy in Montgomery, where it is fitting that the
battlecry should be sounded against the violations of the 10th
Amendment which is being ripped apart by judicial fiat, ex-
ecutive decree, and a general usurpation of those preroga-
tives which belong to the sovereign will of the people alone.
It is that amendment which states that those powers
which are not specifically assigned to the Federal Govern-
ment belong to the individual states. It is that provision
which is being ruthlessly circumvented in decisions by the
Supreme Court. It is that sacrosanct covenant or social con
tract which is thrown into discard by the Attorney General
with his rampaging Justice Department agents who are
transgressing the borders of Southern States.
A great deal of the strife and intellectual ferment in
America today concern this subject with Jame sMadison
discussed so cogently in this Federalist Papers. It is well,
therefore, that all Americans- and particularly Southern-
ers-seek a clear delineation of this matter of strong central
government versus state rights. This was what the Founding
Fathers tried to do when he distinguished between Federal
Government and National Government. He described Fed-
eral Government as one which regarded the union as a con-
federacy of sovereign states. He wrote of National Govern-
ment as being one which regards the union as a consolidation
It is these considerations that will bring the Southerners
to the Alabama capital for a second meeting. Madison's dis-
tinction is one that is germane to the issue of how far we arc
going to permit Washington to invate states' rights before
we call a halt. There is no greater problem, so far as the
democratic process in America is concerned, than this one.

Newspaper Publisher, Montello,
Wis., from "The Rotarian"
Some months ago, as the last
copy of my weekly newspaper
rolled off 'the press and that an-
cient pile of scrap iron clanked to
a halt, I .picked up th last copy to
give it a casual scanning. Opening
to the society page, I glanced at
a wedding story and their in let-
ters which appeared at least one
foot high, was the following state-
"The matron of honor was at-
tired In a punk dress of ceantilly-
lace accentuated," etc.

though neither ,brief nor softly
spoken. In short, she maintained
that I had done it on purpose; that
"pink" cannot possible become
"punk" without some degree of
malice on somebody's part! All my
protestations -that it was not my
fault were wasted.
-I have been through this particu-
lar ordeal many times, of course.
Only the week before, a local al-
derman had performed some high-
decible antics in my establishment
after I had quoted him as saying
that "we need an appropriation to
rebuild some of the brides In. 'the
city." The week ,before that I had,
-been refused ,payment from an ad-
vertiser who claimed that he -had

The Thing is a Model Five Lino-
type, a device which, when treated
properly, turns out the lines of

,printed. The Thing was construct-

machines, by a linotype company
in New York. I certainly haie no .
quarrel with this company, which
still produces fine, praiseworthy,
upsetting machines which are used
all over the world. I have no quar-
rel within Model Fives as a class.

But if I set "Polish Sausages, iper

absolutely certain that it reads

or "OChief" for "Chief". Not mine!
No indeed! The Thing produces
only errors which, when the .paper

The Thing works in devious
ways its evils to perform, and per-
haps one of the most effective is
to produce statements which are
grammatically and typographically
perfect, but which' are completely
saturated with double entendre.
I still shudder when I recall the
incident a few years ago when I
was confronted by an elderly lady
who used to send (past tense) an
occasional news letter of "locals"
from a near-by community. I
-gathered from her expression that
she was not happy. This was con-
firmed a moment later when she
openel up with a verbal broadside
that 'broke chunks out of the of-
flice plaster and upset two type
cases in the back of the shop.
That a 'dear, sheltered old lady
could use words like that! Well!
I weathered the typhoon for 15
minutes, quite unaware of the rea-
son fo rher wrath, though in no
doubt as to its magnitude. After
she had left I thought it might tbe
a good idea to look at her column
in the 'last issue. Sure enough. The
Thing had done It again!
"Due to the storm, the Bible
Study Society was unable to meet.
However, Ryev. D ... and Miss
Besie M .. spent an enjoyable
evening studying sin."
I checked the old- girl's news
letter. That was word for -word,
letter for letter, the way she had
writtne it. But of course, had it
not been for The Thing, I could
have caught it.
Whe nit comes to sins of omis-
sion, an entire' line can be catas-
trophic, as we have seen, but the
omission of a single letter can also
lead to all manner of consequences,
all of them dire. A missing "r",
for example, ones earned me the
enmity -of some friends about
whom I 'had written, "Mr. and
Mrs. F. R.. entertained a
group of fiends -Saturday night."
The Thing is capable of with-
holding some lettres, but has also
been known to drop in extras on
occasion with results I still dream
a-bout. A couple of loose "h's"
dropped in one time where they
were not intended, once produced
this classic: 'Sam S. shpent
two days at a convention last
week." Those two letters, thrown
in by the Poltergeist strictly on
its own, added overtones to .that
simple sentence which were never
Along with withholding and add-
ing letters, dropping lines, and
causing mental lapses in the oper-
ator, The Thing also has another
weapon: the substitution of one
letter for another. How fascinat-
ing it is for .the city council, the
chamber of commerce, and the
Rotary Club to be informed that
"our community is fortunate to
be situated on a hell overlooking
a lake." This doesn't add much to
our program of civic boosting.
And it's got so that I will do al-
most anything to avoid printing
the name of a person named Hill
or Hull. The doggone contraption'll
do it every time.
As any weekly editor who has
ever owned The Thing can tell you
there are always a few other in-
dividuals in the community whom
the Poltergeist hates violently. Vir-
tually every time you mention
these unfortunates, something
drastic happens, until finally they
are convinced you've got it in for
them and no amount of apologies
can convince them otherwise.

The U. S. took a stick and drew a line in the dirt--Castro
stepped across it. Castro picked up a clod and hit Uncle
Sam on the shoe when he took over U. S. industry in Cuba-
and Uncle "turned his other cheek". Now Castro has taken
Uncle's top hat and thrown it in the dirt by hijacking com-
mercial airlines planes and passengers. As a child, this would
have been the "last straw". Thirty years ago, Uncle Sam
would have already dispatched his Marines to Cuba. Is Uncle
getting old and mellow that fast? Or has he found another
cheek to turn?

What A TV Set Cost 25 Years Ago
If someone complains that a television set costs
more today than it did 25 years ago, you'd lift an
eyebrow. A quarter-century back, there were no
television sets to be had-at any price. The same
logic applies to the statement that "prescriptions
cost more today than they used to cost." The drugs
you now get didn't even exist until recent years.
So the benefits these drugs bring the rapid
cures, the lives saved could not be bought at
any price. -That's why we say .

S HOW ARE YOU DOING?
I overheard two men exchang-
Ing greetings as they met one
day. One asked, "What do you
know?" The other man answered
by another question, "How are
you doing?" Though the ques-
tions may seem trivial, they are
What we know is important,
for what we do depends on what
we know. We have to know the
will of God before we can do
the will of God. The question,
"How are you doing?" is vitally
important. It is not enough to
merely know good; we must do
Make every minute of your
life count. You are living by
God's time, and time is running
out. A bright horizon is guar-
anteed by God when you do
His will. Live each day as if it
was your last.
Show love to others. Don't
use words that bite and tones
that are harsh but speak with
kindness. Excuse others' failures
and-faults as often and as fully
as you expect them to be leni-
ent with yours. Be patient and
understanding. Go the extra mile
and do the little thoughtful
things not expected of you.
To do good, however, -you
must have a forgiving spirit.
Forgiveness is the saving grace.
Hatred and bitterness can poison
your life. Forgiveness can find
an opening when there is no
other way out. It turns hatred
into love. Forgiveness can lift
you out of depression. It will
save you from, thoughtless acts
of vengeance that you would
Forgiveness is part of the abun-
dant life concept, Forgiveness,
will bring you joy and peace of
mind. As Dr. Earl Loomis said,
"The experience of forgiveness
is a prime characteristic of the,
happy, full creative personality."
I heard a story once about a
scientist who was deeply hurt
during the war. He spent four
years in Germany as a slave
aborer. His mother and father
were killed by Nazis and his
brother and sister were sent to
the gas chamber. The man had
every reason to hate. Yet, he was
filled with a love of life that he
imparted to everyone he knew.
When he was asked how he
managed to keep his spirit unde-
filed, he said, "It is simple. In the
beginning, my heart was filled
with hatred. Then I realized that
in hating I had become my own
tormentor. If a person is blinded
for five years, he loses five years
of seeing. If a person hates for
five years, he loses five years of
loving. You cannot love unless
you forgive. Without love, life
has no meaning."
What do you know? Do you
know Jesus Christ as your per-
sonal Saviour? How are you
doing? Are you doing God's will
and enjoying abundant life?

NOWS THE TIME to save more truck
dollars on the moreeforayouredollar trucks!
Your truck dollars are worth a
whole lot more at your Chevrolet
dealer's right now! First off, you
get a head start on saving because
summer's the saving season. Then,
with a harder working, easier
riding Chevy truck, you're set to
save every mile you haul. And,
finally, at trade-in time, you can
expect an extra dividend because
of Chevy's traditionally higher
resale value. What could be better?
Summer's the season to get extra mile-
age from your dollars on the trucks built
to give you extra miles of hauling. With
Independent Front Suspension, Chevrolet
trucks keep going thousands of miles
longer because far less destructive jar
and shake are transmitted through the
truck. Chevy I.F.S. trucks work harder,
too, in areas where other trucks have to
be pampered. And, with Chevy's wide
choice of thrifty 6 and hardy V8 power,
you can tailor your truck exactly to your
job. So how can you miss-especially now
during the summer saving season?

Here are some buttercups you won't find in the garden, but
they're a fine treat when they appear at a summer luncheon table.
These Buttercup Shells are individual corn meal pastry cups
you can fill with hot creamed chicken, other creamed fillings, or
chilled seafood or chicken salad. Self-rising corn meal is the
prime ingredient in the recipe it adds delicious corn flavor
and plenty of crunch to these golden pastry shells. You'll also
enjoy the refreshing flavor of the crushed dried mint leaves that
are -mixed with the pastry.
Pastry shells made with enriched self-rising products offer
plenty of nutritional goodness. Calcium, food iron and the three
B-vitamins -- thiamine, riboflavin and niacin are the im-
portant vitamins and minerals in enriched self-rising flour and
corn meal. Here's the Buttercup Shells recipe to bring you those
essential nutrients, plus fine eating.
1/ ecups enriched self-rising 1 tablespoon crushed dried
corn meal mint leaves

Otomic Survival Proopam
An interesting and informative
program was presented to the Port
St. Joe Rotary Club by Bill Win-
ters on the subject of Civil De-
fense from nuclear 'bombs.
The program consisted of two
films. One showed the effects of a
tes" ran in 1959 by the Atomic
Energy Commission in Nevada en-
titled 'Operation Cue". The other
film was instructions as to how
to prevent personal damages, from
fall-out and how to recognize fall-
In the atomic test the AEC con-
structed a city in the Nevada des-
ert, much like any small town in
the U. S. containing public utilities
'and different types of buildings
and. shelters that .may be construct-
ed In the home.
In the 'blast, almost every type
house was demolished with the ex-
ception of those built of reinfroc-
ed concrete block. Several above
ground shelter areas constructed in
some of the houses-such as a re-
inforced 'bathroom, corner room or
hallway, were left standing enough
to protect their ocupants from
death from the 'atomic .blast.
Also in the test, various types of
foodstuffs were placed at varying
distances from -the blast. It was
found from the test that food in
unbroken containers -a -mile from
the blast were safe to eat.
The 'bomb set off was one the
size of the 'bonmtb that destroyed
Hiroshima. The film narrator stat-
ed that a hydrogen warhead would
-be destructive up to eight and a
half miles, while the atomic war-
head exploded, destroyed every-
thing for one mile.
A film on fall-out was shown
giving methods of protection from
this after-effect of an atomic ex-
plosion. Fallout can ,be detected as
dust which follows a known atom-
ic explosion 'and should be avoided
as much as possible.
The best protection from fall-
out, of .course, was to get into an
approved shelter and stay there for
about two weeks until the danger
can -be dissipated. A make-shift
protection is to 'stay in an inside
