Guard told the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day, of changes to be made in the
Unlike the Reserves, the Nation-

governor, with the local unit's sta-
tus being outlined by Washington.
Howell stated that the Apalachi-
cola unit, which has several Port
St. Joe men as members, will have
its status changed for the third
time in ten years. This means a
complete retaining of the entire
unit. The unit started as a rifle
unit, was changed to a heavy mor-
tar company, then to armored cav-
alry and now is being converted to
an engineers unit.
Howell stated that in Florida,

It was a night for reading cor-

Board of Commissioners Tuesday
night at their regular meeting.
Franklin County sent a letter to
the Board asking their assistance
in obtaining federal funds to cre-
ate an airport near Apalachicola.
The letter stated that the air-
port would be known as the Frank-
lin County-Gulf County Airport.
Since the letter contained no fur-
ther details on the matter, the
Gulf County Board decided, to ask

Error in IGA Ad
There is an error in the IGA
advertisement this week.
On presenting a proof of the
ad to the market, the Clorox spe-
cial was marked to be taken out
due to not enough of the item
being on hand.
The item was inadvertently
left in the ad. So if the Clorox
is all gone, don't feel bad, it
wasn't even supposed to be in
the Franklin County Board for a
joint meeting to discuss the pro-
ject. It was surmised that the old
airport near Apalachicola would
be utilized in the project.
The Bay County Board wrote to
Gulf County stating that they
would no longer use Gulf County
prisoners on their road working
crews effective February 1. This
agreement with Bay County has
saved the county a good deal of
money in the past since Bay Coun-
ty furnishes the prisoners needs in
return for their labor.
The Board asked the Sheriff to
try to secure the same type work-
ing agreement with Jackson Coun-
ty after the Bay County agreement
Dr. Lowery Praised
Another letter was received by
the Board Tuesday from Dr. Albert
Harvey, assistant state health of-
ficer of the State Board of Health.
Dr. Harvey was quite lengthy in
his praise of Dr. Willa Dean Low-
ery, Gulf County health officer,
now under fire by certain members
of the Gulf County Board.
Dr. Harvey went to some length
to tell the Board of Dr. Lowery's
good work and capabilities in oth-
er areas of service.
Merit System Discussed
The Board went into a lenthy
discussion pertaining to the work-
ing up of a working agreement for
county employees. There was a
good deal of conservation of creat-
ing a merit system for county em-
ployees, but no definite action on
this matter was taken.
Edward A. Bandjough City Com-
missioner of Wewahitchka appear-
ed before the Board and stated that
the County Seat was desirous of
some street paving from second-
ary funds. He stated that the City
plans to present a resolution to the
Board for their requests. The Board
stated that they would give the re-
The Board also discussed the pro-
ject of paving Sixth Street in
White City with the soil cement
method they have used on three
other occasions in the county.
Due to a drainage problem in the
area, the County Engineer was in-
structed to map up plans for the
paving to provide for proper drain-
Commissioner Kennedy stated
that it was time to begin thinking
of special legislation to present to
the Legislature. He was especially
desirous of presenting a special
bill to allow Gulf County to re-
ceive secondary road funds from
the state to be used in constructing
more of the soil-cement roads,
which are considerably cheaper to
build than conventional roads.
No action was taken on the sug-
gestion, but considerable discus-
sion was seld on the matter.
T h e Board instructed Clerk
George Y; Core to write the State
Road Department and ask that
construction be started as soon as
possible on the several roads also
approved under the Secondary
Road plans for the county.

Meetings for This Month Reported
Port St. Joe Jaycees Join
In National Celebration
This week, members of the Port St. Joe
Junior Chamber of Commerce, with 200,000 oth-
er young men in the United States, celebrate the
opening day of "Jaycee Week", this week.
The group has progressed far since 1935
when Henry Giessenbier, Jr., organized mem-
bers of a St. Louis dancing club into the Young
Men's Progressive Civil Association. The fa-
miliar abbreviation, "J. C." emerged when the
title was shortened to Junior Citizens.
In 1918, the Junior Citizens became affiliat-
ed, at the invitation of the St. Louis Chamber
of Commerce, as the Junior Chamber of Com-
merce. Although the "St. Louis Plan" enjoyed
initial success in other cities, today's Jaycees
are similar to the Chamber of Commerce only
in the aim of civic betterment.
Actual aim of the Jaycees is to develop
communities and train leaders through active
participation in community projects. The Jay-
cee Creed says that "We Believe:
That faith in God gives meaning and pur-
pose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends
the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by
free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather
than of men;
That earth's great treasure lies in human
work of life.
service to humanity is the best

The paternalistic state, the welfare state, the all-pow-

to treat everybody as a common man. By implication, if-
not by admission, the supporters of this kind of a state
are arguing that people are too stupid, too foolish, or tooin-
competent to take care of themselves, and that onl -

"Bright Eyed and Bushy-Tailed"
That's how Paul Harvey, nationally known colum-
nist-commentator describes Jaycees throughout the United
States. Harvey is probably the most outspoken "rooter" of
the Jaycees in the United States.
Jaycees-members of the United States Junior Cham-
ber of Commerce-throughout the nation are observing
"Jaycee Week" this week. This is a period for individual
and collective Jaycees to look back over the year to see if
they are living up to the national motto of the organization
of being "Young Men of Action".
We believe the Port St. Joe Jaycees can well assume the
definition of Harvey and of the national creed. They are
indeed "bright eyed, bushy-tailed young men of action" who
have certainly made their presence felt here in Port St. Joe
and Gulf County during the past three year ... It will be
three years in March of this year, that the Port St. Joe Club
During this period, the local group has grown to twice
their original membership has accomplished some monu-
mental projects in the city and the county and has had
representation at every national Jaycee convention since they
have been a club.
We think it proper that the community and the county
recognize this group of young men this week. And it won't
be hard to remember to bestow this honor. Each time you
ride uptown at night, just remember that the Jaycees started _
the ball rolling to light up the approaches and t iefusiness
district of our city. A good many hours of work was
expended by the "bright eyed, bushy-tailed young men of
action", in drawing up just the lights needed, the candlepower
needed for each light, determining the best location for the
lights, estimating costs, etc. It didn't just happen.
And there are many more noteworthy Jaycee projects
that have been performed in the past two years and ten
months that have served to make Port St. Joe a better
place in which to live.
Just look over their many accomplishments just this
past year alone in the public service advertisement in this
issue. Then, give your congratulations to a'Jaycee when
you see him this week. He will appreciate it. And chances
are, it will make him more "bright eyed and bushy-tailed",,
Cooperation Gets the Job Done
We think it commendable that so many people of the
City of Port St. Joe should conjure up enough interest in a
project to write over 800 letters to men of responsibility in
our Government to better our locality.
It is next to impossible to get people to write letters
favoring something. It is almost as hard to -get people to
write letters opposing something.
That these 800-plus letters would be written favoring
the release of Government property on St. Joseph Point
is our idea of the kind of cooperation that can cause Port
St. Joe to grow no end.
All the time we hear, "Why don't we do something in
Port St. Joe?" or "Why doesn't something happen in Port
St. Joe to spur it along?" That's an easy question to an-
swer. It's because people will not offer their support such
as the letter-writing campaign more often.
We have received word that the release of the 2,000
acres of land on the Peninsula by the Government to the
State of Florida for the purpose of constructing a State
Park is now almost a certainty. And we firmly believe the
letter writing campaign had as much to do with this land
being released as anything that could be done.
We are all a-bubble with enthusiasm over the spirit of
cooperation that has arisen out of this project Let's not stop
here. This park could be only the first of a series of triumphs
for our city, if we would but draw closer together in a one-
ness of purpose... making Port St. Joe the best town to
live in in Northwest Florida,

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
By Lamar Moore
Glidden kindly gave Pulp Mill
three points. In return for the act
of kindness, Pulp Mill donated
Glidden one point in the final
match. The Laboratory got greedy
and hogged all four points from
Box Plant. Back Maintenance had
Vitro sweating all night before go-
ing down three points to one. The
Laboratory sneaked back to third
place ahead of Back Maintenance.
A one man show was put on by
Sonny Counts of Electric Meter as
he led his team to three points
over Paper Mill.
The Pulp Mill, being the good
boys that they are, tried to give
all four points to the good boys
from Glidden. Glidden decided that
they couldn't use the points and
insisted that Pulp Mill take them.
Lamar Moore, at 513, and Foy Ad-
ams at 441, were the only bowlers
on either team to get their aver-
On lanes three and four, the Lab-
oratory team put on a good show
to take all games from Box Plant.
Tom Thornton was the big gun at
549. J. C- McArdle was senior king
pin at 482, thanks to a big 221 fi-
nal game. Tommy Parker contin-
ues to be hot as was Junior king
pin with his series of 469. It will
be interesting to see how the
chemists make out against Vitro
Lee Taylor was somewhat cool
even though he got above his av-
erage at 468. John Brown suffered
a bad night at 381, as did Alto
Worley and Dave Sprague. Goober
Dunlap and Yank Zimmerman were
sorely missed by the Boxers, not
to mention Marvin Bearden.
The better bowling for the eve-
ning took place on alleys five and
six. Vitro managed to make off
with the bacon but was almost
caught in the act as Back Mainten-
ance shot a neat 2331 series. All
Vitro men were over 450, save Dan-
ny Maddox at 435. Bill Tew 'was
high at 512.,
Back Maintenance was led by
Rod ensen at 521, but it was the
likes of Harley Roberts at 402 and
Buford Griffin at 486 that kept the
pressure on Vitro. Harley was a
whopping 77 pins above his aver-
age for the evening and was per-
sonally responsible for Back Main-
tenance taking the third game.
Peanut McCroan is on the rebound
and turned in a 436.
Sonny Counts acted as anchor
man for Electric Meter and anchor
them he did, as he put together
games of 220, 186, and 190 for a
gigantic 596. This is first high in-
dividual series in the leagues so
far. Dave Jones gave Sonny a hand
when he turned in a 425. Hughey
Williams had good connections as
did Jimmy Harrison as both were
well above average.
Bill Whaley showed signs of
greatness at one point but failed
to get his 500 when he slumped to
a 145 third game. Billy Joe Davis
may be getting back on the right
track but wound up at 469. Billy
Joe is due to break open one of
these nights. Archie Floyd was
consistent and had a 169 final
game to wind up at 439. Ole Arch
can be rough at times.

WATER AMD TE BODY
Dehydration may be defined
as the removal of water from
the body or a tissue and also
as the condition which results
from undue lose of water. In a
person it is usually associated
with loss of both water and
The failure to drink is the
most frequent cause of lack of
water in the body. In people
who are debilitated and too
weak to respond to thirst, de-
hydration may be noticeable.
Persons in a state of clouded
consciousness or coma often
are unable to communicate that
they are thirsty.
Water starvation rapidly can
become a serious condition.
Death can come quicker from
water starvation than from the
lack of any other article of diet.
It is estimated that a human
can live only about eleven days
without water. Too little water
in the body causes the blood to
become thick and decrease in
volume, the circulation to slow
and stop, and death results.
Chemists refer to water as
the universal solvent, for it will
dissolve more materials than
any other pure liquid. This is
especially important in the hu-
man body. Water provides the
necessary environment for the
continuous and varied life pro-
cesses within the body. There
is water in every cell and be-
tween all cells. Water com-
prises as much as 75 per cent
of the body weight.
Thirst, as with hunger, is
an instinctive self-preservation

need. The normal body needs

uelson's 478 was high second. John
Hanson's first night with the bank

Bill Whaley's 439 and Don Law-
ley's 438 were next.
Alleys five and six saw the big
guns of Costin's all get their pow-
der wet allowing the Stevedores to
sweep three points from the league
leaders. Frank Gonzalez led the
Stevedores with 495 and Ted Gra-
bowski's 480 was second. Jimmy
Costin was high for Costin's with
