(The attached string is that
the "grant" must be repaid if
the City undertakes any major
water and sewer work whether it
is connected with the survey or
After discussion the matter
with Kilbourn and finding out
just where the City stood in the
project which was inaugurated a
year ago under the late Mayor J.
L. Sharit. Nothing has been done
on the project as yet, and as a
result, the Government has set
a time limit for the City to ac-
cept or reject the survey money.
The City asked Kilbourn to re-
quest an extension of the offer
of funds until they could review
the scope of work originally plan-
It was reported at the meeting
Tuesday night that the extension
had been granted for 30 days.

pile of telephone poles belonging
to the SSt. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company burned. The
poles had been unloaded .from a
railroad car near the City 'Ware-

Apparently the grass beside the
highway caught fire and burned up
under the poles setting them afire.

moned. Phone company officials es-
timated the damage at about $1,-

George Core Tells Humorous Side of Court House Doins'
Gulf County's Circuit C our t,
while being a serious business, also
has its humorous side--this accord-
ing to George Y. Core, Clerk of the
Circuit Court. Core gave the Port
St. Joe Kiwanis Club some of the
examples of the humorous in court
at their regular meeting Tuesday,
and at the same time worked in a
point of the near mockery of the
courts that some people try to
As an example, Core told of a
man from the Kenney's Mill quar-
ters up in court for chicken steal-
ing. The man who owned the chick
ens had caught the man. on triai
in his chicken yard with chickens
tinder his arms and would not al-
low him to put the birds down un-
til the law arrived. In pleading on
his own behalf, the defendant ex.
plained that he saw a dog trying
to catch the chickens and eat them
and he had been merely holding the
chickens so the dog could not eat
them when he was accosted by the
Then there was the case of the
Negro woman caught ,by police in
possession of bolita tickets. The
Negress explained that some man
who didn't like her had thrown the
paper tickets down in her yard and
she had merely been "picking the
trash up out of her yard" when she
All of these incidents happened
in the Gulf County Circuit Court.
Core worked in his lesson of the
day, however, by explaining how
such deliberate falsehoods were
purjury and bore a stiff penalty.
He told of Gulf County's second
case of purjury being uncovered by
the court in 13 years. The act oc-
curred in connection with the trial
of the boys who broke into the ice
plant building, which was held in
February of this year.
A host of evidence had been of-
fered by the state to prove the
guilt of those on trial and also sev-
eral witnesses were introduced to
strengthen the state's case against
the defendants and had a seeming-
ly air tight case. Then a young cou-
ple from Wewahitchka testified
that the defendants had been in
their home during the night in ques-
tion without leaving. The state was
able to prove their story false and
thereby inaugurated the charge of
The couple are awaiting sentence
at this time and face up to 20 years
in prison and complete loss of citi-
zenship. Core explained that per-
jury in a capital case is punish-
able by imprisonment for life.
Core explained that while the
court hated to impose such a harsh
sentence on the couple, it couldn't
let the court become a side show
of any kind of lie just to get a de-

Pridgeon told the Board that he
had -an agreement with the late
Mayor J. L. Sharit 'that his com-
pany would pay the cost of putting
down water and sewer mains -and
paving in the area in question and
the Mayor agreed that the City
would then place the water .meters
Pridgeon stated that his company
did not get this agreement in writ-
ing so far as he knew, nor did his
company offer anything in writing
to the Mayor with the exception of
progress reports which referred to
the agreement in several instances.
Pridgeon stated that he had re-
ceived a statement for the water
meters, after the housing project
was finished In 1959. but had call-
ed thi t., City. Clerk R. W. Hender-

Dr. Morley Praises Gulf County Students
For Intellegance and Manners
By DR. RICHARD MORLEY
Pres. Gulf Coast Jr. College
I haye just had the opportunity
to address a group of young men
and women who impressed me
greatly. The group was composed
of high school seniors from Port
St. Joe and Wewahitcha High
Schools, and they were visiting
Gulf Coast Junior College last
week in connection with our
annual 'Gulf County Senior Day'.
I am sure that all of you in Gulf
County -are aware of the fact that
your youngsters are outstanding
representatives of your area, but
I would like you to know that they
impress others as well.
Our faculty and students leaders
who served on the welcoming
committee today were highly com-
plimentary after the Gulf County
seniors left the campus. Their
manners, bearing, end court esy
impressed all who met them today.
This also applies to the many fine
students who have been enrolled at
We were so impressed, in fact,I
that serv.eral staff -members asked
me about the possibility of enrol-'
ling more Gulf County students at
Gulf Coast Junior College next'
year.. We have several enrolled!
now, but we feel that more
Gulf County students would add
much to our campus.
In conversation wi'h the visiting I
students and those that have been
enrolled, )almost to a student,
this is the expression heard 'We
want to attend Gulf Coast, but we
just can't afford the cost of a car
and gasoline to drive back and
This is certainly a valid com-
plaint-but it is this very obstacle-
that is.-depriving many worthwhile
Gulf County youth from having the
chance to go to college.

leges in the state, outlying counties

Just use your head and you'll discover

You May Be
Losing SS Benefits
Many individuals age 62 may be
losing Social Security benefits, ac-
cording to John V. Carey, District
Manager of the Panama City Social
Security Office. First of all, wi-
dows, dependent parent's, and de-
pendent widowers receive a full
benefit at age 62.
Any man or woman entitled to a
reduced ;benefit may be ahead fi-
nancially for 15 years by taking
the reduced benefit as soon as pos-
sible, .Carey added. If earnings do
not go over $1200 per year, the in-
dividual may be paid benefits for
all months in the year. The individ-
ual who does not -earn over $1200
and who -does not file a claim be-
cause of misinformation regarding
the reduced benefit is Tosing Social
Security benefit money. The reduc-
ed benefits.lost for the months the
individual is underage 65 will not
be recovered unless the person
lives to be -over 80 years of age.
Individuals who earn something
over $1200 a year may also gain fi-
nancially by 'filing a claim for re-
duced benefits, Carey concluded.
You -now know how much'you made
from working, plus profit from run-
ning your business in 1961. If you
could qualify for some benefits,
even though-the-benefit may be re-
duced, you should. contact your
nearest Social Security Office im-
mediately. Individuals age 65 and
over who have not filed a claim
because they are still working
should file 'their claims without de-
lay. Many people age 65 and over
are losing benefits.
The Social 'Security Office for
this area is located at 1135 Harri-
son Avenue, Panama City. Tele-
phone PO 3-5331.

Volunteer Adult Help Is Sadly
Lacking At The Youth Center
Rev. Harry Babbit is slightly perturbed ... and right-
fully so. Maybe concerned would be a better word than "per-
Rev. Harry is the volunteer head of the Stac House op-
eration in Port St. Joe, and doing a creditable job, despite
his many handicaps. The largest of these handicaps, and
the cause of his consternation, is the lack of adult coop-
-eration as chaperones and supervisors at the weekly ses-
sions at the youth gatherings.
It seems that we recall the adults of Port St. Joe were
very desirous of getting the Stac house built so that they
could give their children supervised night-time recreation.
But now the house is built and the children are figuritively
left standing on the floor by themselves.
But Babbit, using his uncommonly good wisdom, refuses
to open the youth center on nights when no adults show up
to help supervise. We don't see how Babbit can do anything
else. We certainly don't advocate that he be charged with the
complete responsibilities of taking care of the center. It is
commendable that he and his staff have given as much of
their time a.c they have for all the children of Port St. Joe
and. they deserve some help and the interest of the parents
)f Port St. Joe.
Let's Give Our Attention To
Keeping Our "Bird In The Hand"
In reading articles sent to The Star by the Vitro Services
we see where men are 'regularly being laid off on the Gulf
Coast Missile Test Range of which the Cape San Blas instal-
lation is a part. This lay-off hasn't affected the Port St. Joe
installation much as yet due to resignations and transfers.
But, according to the trend publicized in these articles, the
local station will suffer some releases before long.
This installation is an. important factor in the economy
of Port St. Joe and it is the opinion of this newspaper that
steps should be taken to preserve this source of income and
keep the Vitro people here. They have made good citizens.
It would seem prudent that the Chamber of Commerce
and the City and County Commissions should contact Con-
gressman Bob Sikes to see if something couldn't be done to
channel more missile work down the Gulf Test Range. The
facility is there available and the work is available in the
United States. And, we believe, with a little effort, the two
items could be brought together to keep this facility operat-
ing at full capacity.
What is the old proverb? "A bird in hand is worth two
in the bush"? A little effort on our existing industries is
just as important as endeavors toward bringing in more in-
(From the Panama City News-Herald)
Much as we hate to admit it, Harry H. Saunders of Port
St. Joe is right about Panama City and Bay County.
Speaking at the local Chamber of Commerce's First Fri-
day Club, Mr. Saunders pointed out the almost complete
apathy here toward efforts to obtain a cross-state canal for
Florida and otherwise improve and expand waterways sys-
Mr. Saunders speaks with authority. He is director of
the Canal Authority of Florida, a director for District 6 -
the Florida Waterways Committee and chairman of the In-
dustrial Development Committee for the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce.
He pulled no punches here when he pointed out that this
community has no representation upon the Florida Water-
ways Committee and never bothers to send anyone to con-
ventions of the National Rivers and Harbors Congress, per-
haps the most influential national organization in the pro-
motion of waterways.
Furthermore, we agree thoroughly with Mr. Saunders in
his statement that Panama City stands to benefit hugely
from a cross-state canal and potential traffic along the Gulf
and Atlantic Intra-Coastal Waterways. Yet, no local support
has been given movements of tremendous import.
So, thank you, Mr. Saunders, for administering a much
needed lesson. It hurts a little, but maybe in the future we
can get stirring and lend a hand in developments that could
mean so much to Panama City and Bay County, Port St. Joe
and Gulf County, and the entire Gulf Coast.

They 'will also benefit by being ab-

"When the Cross-Florida Barge
Canal is completed, you will' find
that the number of pleasure crafts
using the Gulf Intracoastal Water-
way will equal or surpass 'the num-
ber using the Atlantic Intracoastal,
and that traffic is tremendous and
increasing each year. You will have
,a steady stream of pleasure crafts
moving before your front door. '
"With your wonderful marinas,
your 'beautiful beaches and other
attractions, it is only natural' that
most of hese crafts will spend some
time inr Panama City." The speak-
.er pointed out that this city occu-
pies the most prominent location
on the waterway "main street".
He noted that Panama City has "
"one of the pretties and most at-
tractive front doors" of the water-
ways to be found anywhere on their
entire 29,000 miles.
"You have possibly wondered
why at times Port St. Joe received

The TB and Health Association
urges all residents of Gulf County
18 years o fage and above to get
a free chest X-ray.
Are you free from tuberculosis,
cancer of the lungs, and enlarged

you have one of them-can be found
by X-ray before you notice any
symptoms. You can be treated
most successfully by finding the

That holiday- pie favorite, mincemeat, assumes a new role as
filling for these easy bar cookies. Orange-sparked cookie-cake
layers enclose spicy mincemeat filling for interesting flavor
The dough for these cookies will be rather thin and quite
sticky, not unlike butter frosting. Spreading the dough will be
easier if you drop it by spoonfuls around the pan and then smooth
very gently with a spatula or back of a spoon. During baking,
the dough will spread evenly.
The big reason why these cookies go together quickly is the
self-rising flour used in the dough. Baking powder and salt
are already mixed into self-rising flour to save you extra sifting
and measuring steps. And, because Mincemeat S~uares are made
-with enriched self-rising flour with its added measure of cal-
cium, -iron and three B vitamins, they are as wholesome as they
Serve chewy-good Mincemeat Squares with tall glasses of

3/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon grated orange
1/2 cup melted shortening rind
2 eggs 2 Cups sifted enriched self-'
V/2 teaspoon orange extract rising flour
/ cup prepared mincemeat
Combine sugar and shortening. Beat in eggs until mixture is
smooth. Stir in orange extract and orange rind. Gradually add
flour, stirring until well-blended. Place half the dough in a
well-greased 9-inch square pan. Spread dough with mincemeat
and cover with remaining dough. Bake in moderate oven (375F.)
about 30 minutes. When cool, cut into 1/-inch squares. Makes
about 2%/ dozen squares.

About one in every ten per-
sons will suffer from a "sto-
mach" ulcer at some time during
his life. Ulcers occur mainly in
the 30 to 60 age group and four
times as many men are victims
An ulcer is a hole in the pro-
tective lining of the stomach or
upper intestine. Through this
hole, the acid and digestive juice
made in the stomach erode the
tender underlying tissue.
All patients with gastric ulcer
are not operated upon. After a
certain amount of observation it
can usually be determined
whether the ulcer is malignant
or benign. Because a high per-
centage of ulcers of the stomach
itself prove to be malignant, it
is therefore important to decide
whether a gastric ulcer is def-
initely benign or malignant.
Most patients with gastric
ulcer are hospitalized for a trial
by way of medical treatment.
If the ulcer fails to heal, if it
recurs, or there is blood present
in the stool, surgical treatment
usually is indicated.
The danger of a benign ulcer
is that it will continue to grow
until it perforates the walls of
the stomach or duodenum and
causes peritonitis, or that serious
hemorrhage may result from it.
An ulcer is a combination of
the stomach glands producing
acid and protein-digesting pep-
sin in too great an amount, and
a condition of diminished vitality
in a patch cf the stomach or in-
testine v whihcih has hecom2

Gives Babe Ruth
Awards This Week
The Senior Intramural Board of
Port 'St. Joe High School held its
annual Babe Ruth Sportsmanship
Award program yesterday at a
school assembly program. The win-
ners of this award were Mildred
Tillman and David Nance.
These outstanding students have
exemplified the highest standards
of sportsmanship in all aspects of
their school and community ende..-
vors. They were nominated along
with Larry Davis, Fred Joines, Jim
Goodman, Brenda Ward, Dianne
Haunon and Katrina Farris by the
faculty. The students of the Senior
High School voted them this signal
The program included a speech
on Babe Ruth's life and accomplish-
ments by Mary Carolyn Lyons.
Carl Zimmerman gave an explana-
tion of the origin and significance
of the program, made 'possible by
the 'estate of the late Babe Ruth.
The Reverend Harry Babbit of
the St. James Episcopal Church
made an interesting and challeng-
ing speech on the meaning of
'Coach Marion Craig introduced
the nominees and announced the
Chesley Fensom, president of the
Intramural Board, was master of

Harry H. Saunders spoke to the
Port St. Joe Rotary Club Thursday
of work currently in progress to
improve the canal system of the
State of Florida. Saunders was pri-
marily interested in the Cross-State
I Barge Canal, planned to connect
the Gulf of Mexico with the At-
lantic Ocean from Yankeetown
THURSDAY, MAY 17, 1696
,across the peninsula to Jackson,
Saunders said the cross-state ca-
nal was needed to aid the 'State
commercially and to aid the na-
tion in time of war and peace. He
pointed out that such 'a route was
needed to provide safe passage for
missiles on the 'way to Canavaral
without having to subject the deli-
cate machines to the rigors of
"outside" travel. He pointed out
that even in peace-time, all the ov-
e r 1 and transportation facilities
available cannot supply half of the
fuel oil needed by the Atlantic Sea-
board.. This points out a need for
safe, dependable barge transport
for this product alone.
Saunders told the group that 'the
Florida Waterways Commission
as a working group, was formed in
1958 when it was incorporated as
a non-profit organization. Since the
inception of the group, Port -St. Joe
has been represented on the com-
mittee by 'a member.
Just last year, the Florida Canal
Authority was formed with the sole
purpose of securing ,engineering and
rights of way for state canal pro-
jects to present to the U. S. Army
Saunders asserted to the Rotary
members that the Cross-Florida
Barge Canal was the key to the in-
tegration of Florida's waterways
system into a vital link in our na-
Guests of the club were A. C.
Murphy of Thomasville, Ga., and

Words to Live by
is a word to live by
HOPE is something within us that makes us strive
and reach for something higher.
There may be failure, but there is always hope to
start again, with hope directing our way.
HOPE longs for a desired goal.
HOPE keeps us with a song in our heart.
HOPE is like a shot in the arm; it brings new
thoughts or desires to build on.
HOPE is a booster for the discouraged.
HOPE is a steppingstone to the depressed and nee--
dy; it renews their will to find a brighter day.
HOPE is confidence and expectation.
HOPE is a guide to good cheer and happiness.
HOPE is a comfort when fear assails us.
HOPE brings light into darkness,
HOPE is-truly a word to live by.
We were much impressed by this essay and it is
most significant in view of the fact it was written by
blind members of a writing class.

Time to Feed Your

By HERVEY SHARPE

Controlling weeds with chemicals
is easier than dancing the twist be-
cause it takes only one turn. This
is the turn of a spray nozzle.
Chemical weed control adds a
touch of professionalism to the
task once performed iby the hoel
It requires less work and little or
But ,don't become overconfident
in using the chemicals. This could
spell -doom to beautiful ornamen-
tals as well as the undesirable

Growth regulators such as 2, 4-D;
2, 4, 5-T and MVP, even in very
small amounts, may injure suscep-
tible plants., These materials are
weed killers. But- remember, they
cannott distinguish between weeds
Do not apply 2, 4-D within, several
feet of sensitive plants-such as
most garden plants, flowers and or-
namentals. Cover flowers an d
shrubs with paper or plastic before
spraying. 'Use extreme care to pre-
vent the chemical from reaching or-
namentals through drifting, leach-
ing into the soil or by running on
the surface during a heavy shower
Apply weed killers on a calm day
because wind-blown chemicals can
injure plants all over the 'neighbor-
Even on calm days use low pres-
sure-20 to 40-pounds .per square
inch and nozzles with large open-
ings that put out coarse sprays ra-
,ther than fine mists.
Before using any chemical-weed
killer, insecticide or .fungicide-be
sure to read and follow the instruc-
tions on the chemical container.
Fertilizing trees is aimed at put-
ting nutrients where they will do
the most good. For trees with
fi'fiRs less than six inches in dia-
mitei, punch holes under the en-
ti'r canopy 12 inches 'deep at 18-
inop i intervals and apply three
6aVs of a garden fertilizer in the
4 Two applications per year
commendede. One now and an-
in the Mall.
For bees larger than six inches
in trunk diameter apply five pounds
For azaleas, camellias, crotons,
hibiscus, gardenias, .shrubs, hedges
and other ornamental -plants, make
four applications per year. Apply
one to one and one-half pounds of
fertilizer to 100 square feet of
planting per application in late
spring, summer, winter and early
spring. The late spring application
;is due now. Water plants, spread
'the plant nutrients, and then wa-
'ter the plant food materials in.
Azaleas and camellias need spe-
cial acid type fertilizer, so be sure
to feed them the right formula or
they may become fertilizer sick.
Annuals and perennials need
three applications of one to one
and one-half pounds of 6-6-6 fertili-
My Annreciation to the Voters
I want you to know that I deeply appreciate your
vote and support in the May 8 primary. Many of you
voted for me even though I was unable to ask for your
vote personally. I am grateful for that. I am proud
of the vote you gave me even though it fell short of

N NOTICE DOG OWNERS
Dr. H. E. Butts, Veterinarian, will be in his
clinic at the corner of First Street and Long Avenue
Friday, May 25 and Friday, June 1 from 2:30 p.m.
to 6:00 p.m. for the purpose of innoculating dogs
against rabies. Dog owners are urged to bring their
pets to the Veterinarian for vaccination. The fee
will be $2.00 per dog.
This service is being arranged by the City of
Port St. Joe by the Chief of Police H. W. Griffin,
zer per year for each 100 square
feet of plantings. Make one appli-
cationat planting time and' two dur-
ing the growing season. Nitrates of
soda or other sources of nitrogen,
are needed in spring and in sum-
mer at the rate of one-half to one
pound per 100 square feet of plant-
Another do-it-yourself activity is
taking care of gladioli that are
through blooming at this time.
Actually, when, the tips 'begin to
yellow and die back, it is time to
dig the bulbs and prepare them for
storage. New corms grow on top of
old ones, so break off and throw
away the old corms and store the
Prior ;to storing the new corms,
dry them first in an open, dry and
shady place for about a week.
Eight weeks ,before replanting,
place the corms! in your refrigera-
tor and plant immediately upon tak-
ing them out of refrigeration.
Glads will -grow without refrirg-
eration, 'but if not given cool stor-
age treatment they produce irregu-
lar growth and erratic blooming.
It will soon be dig-and-store-iris
time. Irises do not need to be plac-
ed in cold storage, but the large,
clumped bulbs should be broken in-
to individual parts 'and old and new
bulblets stored in a cool place in
readiness for fall planting.
