PORT ST. J0I, FLURIBA

just any old excuse at hand to get
to come to Florida.
They can't stand to stay away.

A good example is a character
we knew when lived in Georgia by
the name of Claude Thurmond.
SClaude owns a big laundry and
dry cleaning plant in Fort Valley,
Georgia and one of the best motel
and restaurants on Highway 41 just
South of Perry.
When we lived in Georgia, we
whetted Claude's appetite with the
big bass one -could catch in the
Dead Lakes. 'He came down and
.even caught a fish through a knot-
hole in the bottom of the boat (the
live well). He never got over that
and he never let any of his cronies
in and around Perry, Fort Valley
'and Warner Robins forget it either.
Not many people can catch 'a fish
through a knothole.
Then a month or two ago Blake
Thomason and Gene Abrams be-
gan to run their Dixie Seafood Co.,
trucks through this area and hap-
pened to stop by Claude's motel-
the Moss Oaks in case you happen
to be in the vicinity-and Claude
became a seafood customer.
Claude recognized the name Port
r St. Joe, the home of Dixie Seafood,
because he knew we were here.
Now the excuse to come to Flor-
'Claude, being extremely gregar-
'ous noW--had -another excuse. He
had to come to Port St. Joe 'to see
his old friend (me). and how he was
getting along and to see his new
friends (Blake and Gene) and see
He's just that kind of a guy.
,So last week end he came, he
saw, he talked old times, and he
had a good time.
Just any old excuse will do to
come to Florida.
And he will -greet you with the
same open arms if you stop by his
motel and-restaurant any time you
happen to find yourself two miles
South of Perry, Georgia on High-
way 41 and tell him you are from
Port St. Joe and that you know old
Blake or Gene or Wes.
He's just that kind of a guy.
We got a letter from the bank
the other day.
It scares us to get letters from

The City Commission, began dis-
cussion Tuesday night on a new
budget for the coming fiscal year.
According to the first draft of
the budget, it will be increased
by $15,903.21 over last year. This
first draft is by no means a def-
inite figure, but is expected to be
close to what will be passed by
The new budget will require some
$231,879.80 to finance, if it Is adopt-
ed 'as is. This will mean that $136,-
142.30 must be raised by property
taxes which will require a millage
of 13.7. Last year's millage was
Included in the budget draft is
$16,550 in capital outlay funds
which include, among other
things, money to pay on the re-
cently purchased office machines,
air conditioning for the council
chambers, a new police car, a new
pick-up truck, a new garbage
packer-loader truck and a new
A few observations were made
by the Commission Tuesday night
of the new budget.
'Commissioner Tom Coldewey es-
pecially took note of a recommen-
dation by the City Clerk that the
City be operated on a fiscal year
of October 1 to September 30 in-
stead of the present calendar year,
to coincide -closer with the city's
-tax receipt dates.
Coldewey also stated that the
City should set up a depreciation
account to prevent such heavy ex-
penditures *as occur in the present
Mayor Hannon observed that he
thought the contr_~niency item of
$5,000 was too small. He observed
that the city is called upon for
several expenditures during .thee
year not in the -budget. Coldewey
said the only alternative was to
defer requests for objects requir-
ing heavy expenditures over to the
next year's budget.
The Board also got into a long
'discussion about the money being
lost by the garbage collection and
water collection services. It was
pointed -out that the water depart-
ment expects some $17,000 deficit
this year taking into consideration

its bond obligations, while the gar-
bage collection service expects a
deficit of around $4,000.00.
Coldewey said that a study should
be made of the charge schedule for
these services and see what the
,Commissioner John Robert Smith
expressed the desire to include in
the budget $5,000 for beautification
of Forrest Park and a like amount
to paint the Centennial Building,
"even if we have to add :a half a
mill". Coldewey vigorously opposed
any tax hike and suggested that
some of the other items could be
reduced to provide 'the money.
City Clerk Williams stated that
$11,000 had been 'put in the parks
and cemetery account with no ear-
marking as to how they should be
spent. He pointed out that some, if
not all, 'the money 'Smith requested
for Forrest Park would probably
be available in the budget as out-

LOSE TO APALACHICOLA IN SEASON OPENER
Sharks Seek Initial Win Saturday Night
By WILL I. RAMSEY
Fumbles, penalties and inexper-
ience spelled the downfall of the
.Sharks last Friday night as the
Chapman Sharks of Apalachicola
opened the season with a 6 to 0 win
over Port 'St. Joe.
The game offered very little in
offensive excitement from either
team. Every time the St. Joe team
started to roll they were slapped
down by a costly rule infraction.
Chapman also received their share
of the penalties 'but managed to
make their six pointer early in the
game and then held on for dear
life the rest of the way.
The _game was very costly for
Port St. Joe. Quarterback Bob
Craig suffered an arm fracture
and will be out for the rest of
the season. Craig, who was start-
ing his first game at quarterback
was looking mighty good. The
quarterback load will now fall on
the shoulders of another sopho-
more, Al Cathey. Cathey, who re-
placed Craig, did a creditable
job and will surely gain much
valuable experience before the
year is out.
Chapman scored early in the first
quarter after the Sharks were for-
ced to punt because of a series of
penalties that put them deep into
their own territory. Chapman took
the ball on the Shark 40 and drove
on to score.
The Sharks put together some
good drives in the first and fourth
quarters but fumbles stopped them
both and they were never .able to

BOYLES BLASTS OFF INTO SPACE!
Awakening early (.about 4 a.m.)
this morning -one of the first
things that occupied our wander-
ing -thoughts were the words of
an old hymn that was sung many
times in the little country church
this writer attended rgeularly ov-
er 50 years ago. We quote a few
,of the lines below:
"Do you know the world is dy-
ing for a little bit of love .
Everywhere you hear the sighing
for a little bit of love". ,
We looked for this song in
some of the hymn books at home
-but did not find it. These words
'are meaningful and powerful.
Yes, "Sharpe rthan a two edged
sword". However, the world ap-
pears to 'be putting its hope in
nuclear weapons, rockets, mis-
siles, satellites, etc. We're going
all out to -explore and conquer
space. The mightiest weapons
and -armies in history are being
assembled. Where -do you think
we're headed? Frankly, we do
not- claim to know, -but we do
have feelings and ideas that are
far from pleasant and satisfying.
We read in the -greatest Book
,of time: "Not by Power nor 'by
Might, but by My Spirit?" Does
this make any sense or have any
meaning to the world? Let us
:hope so even in the face of the
alarming trend of the times. Can
we go back to the words of the
old 'hymn and find a measure of.
comfort and consolation in trying
.to do our little bit to a .sick world
that's "Dying for a little bit of.
Shall we start with a firmer
purpose today in the place we
live, work, study and play? I do
not know of a better way or ibet-

It happens every fall.
As children the country over start back to school,
the grown-ups most concerned with their welfare get
together in activities that protect those children and
enhance their learning and their lives.
Usually they do it in the PTA, through one of the more than
47,000 parent-teacher associations that constitute the National
Congress of Parents and Teachers.
AGAIN THIS fall, the millions of Americans who are PTA
members will seek new col- sponsor teen-canteens, art ex-

Disabled Veterans Will Get
Increase In Monthly Payments
New compensation rates for vet-
erans who are in receipt of wartime
disability checks will show a slight
increase beginning with the Octo-
ber checks. It will 'be remembered
that the checks for the month of
October will not be received by
the veteran until on or about No-
vember 1. As VA checks are mail-
'ed at the end of the month for
which they are issued.
Public law 87-645 (HR 10743) ap-
proved September 7, 1962, and ef-
fective October 1, 1962 amends
certain sections of the old law to
provide for the increase. Changes
will be only slight for those who
are rated at 50% and less with the
larger increases amounting to as
much as $75 per month in cases
where the veteran is totally dis-
abled with additional compensation
for loss of certain members of the
body. As an example: those pre-
sently rated at 10% as of the effec-
tive date were rceeiving $19 per
month. The increase will be only
$1.00 per month. Those rated at
100% and 'without additional loss
of limb or members will receive a
The new law also provides that
to partly justify the long delay in
passage of the bill, veterans on
the rolls on the effective date' of
the law will receive an additional
lump sum payment equal to three
'times the monthly increase.
A 'stuffer, explaining the increa-
ses will be enclosed with each Oc-
tober dis a b lity compensation
Attention is called to the fact that
not all veterans presently receiv-
ing checks from the veterans ad-
ministration are affected by this
bill. Those in receipt of pensions,
that is non-service connected dsia-
ibility payments will not be affect-
ed. For information to clarify this
you may call the veterans service

of 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. except

Kiwanis Speaker Predicts New Drugs
For Cure of Now Incurable Diseases
A .medical revolution which will
uncover drugs for most of the now
incurable diseases was .predicted
-by Wade Odom of CIBA Pharma-
ceutical Company Tuesday.
Addressing the Port St. Joe Ki-
wanis Club he said, "We are now
in the midst of a .medical revolu-
tion. Nine out of ten prescriptions
written today could not have been
filled in 1935."
With the first anti-infective drugs
discovered in the early 1940's, the
pharmaceutical industry realized
that within reach were drugs to
wipe out diseases, reduce surgery,
shorten hospitalizations, prolong
flfe, banish pain, and ward off un-
diuretics which have saved count-
less lives. He also noted the tran-
quilizers which have reduced the
number of patients in mental hos-
The result of drug research in a
highly competitive industry has
been that in 21 years "America has
introduced more effective new
drugs to combat or cure illness
than -all of the rest of the nations
of the world combined," the speak-
er said. "In contrast, Russia has
produced no new or significant
drug in the 43 years of its state-

Ring Around Coffee Cake
. 4_ IN,

cake you'll be. delighted to serve, This delicately orange-flavored
muffin ring sports a crisp crumble topping, drizzled with con-
fectioners' sugar icing for extra goodness,
For real early-risers, bake Ring Around Coffee Cake the
evening before to warm in the oven next morning before serving.
It's quickly prepared in the morning as well, requiring only 25
to 30 minutes baking time.
With this coffee ring and other quick breads, self-rising flour
is the reason for their double-quickness. Leavening and salt are
pre-measured and added to the flour to give you optimum re-
sults in all your baking. And don't forget those important nu-
trients thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, calcium and iron that
enrichment of the flour provides, to make these home-baked
breads as good for you as they are good to eat.

Like all conventions, humorous
happenings are prevalent and the
telling of them afterward makes for
an entertaining program.
Coach Craig also -gave the Ro-
tary Club his view of the 1962 ver-
sion of the Sharks football team.
Summer up, he said, "They are
a bunch of big boys, and 'if we can
-get them to .exert just a portion of
their potential, they will ibe a great
team". Craig went -on to say that
the tema was filled with young
boys who had never been in a game
but that they were capable of learn-
ing and had the weight and mus-
cular attributes to do the job.
Guest of the Club was Merritt
Pope of Panama City.
Bob Vervacke was inducted into
the club as a new member.
