City Auditor and Clerk, J. B.
Williams stated this week that
the new garbage ordinance re-
cently enacted by the City Com-
mission, will go into effect on
February 1. The billing for this
new expanded service will also
show on the February 1 water
bills, as garbage service is billed
for in advance of performance of
the pick-up service.
The new ordinance requires
every resident of the City to use
the Municipal Sanitary Collec-
Williams stated that at pres-
ent only about 750 of the City's
1150 potential customers sub-
scribe to the City's garbage pick-.
up service. The new ordinance
makes it mandatory that resi-
dents use the service or provide
an approved vehicle to haul off
their own garbage.
A new garbage collection truck
is due to arrive next week to
enable the City to provide the
expanded service necessary to
take on the added customer load.
Garbage raters for residential
users was set at $1.00 per month
on the January 1 billing, with
commercial users rates hiked ac-
cordingly. The part of the ordin-
ance requiring use of the city
service was delayed awaiting ar-
rival of the new truck.

Hubert Richards, DSA judge, an-
nounced at the conclusion of the
program that Jaycee Wade Bar-

two major Jaycee projects during
the past year, as well as being ac-

the organization. In addition, he
has served as a vice-president dur-
ing the present year.
Barrier, almost single handed,
worked up and presented to the Ci-
ty Commission the Jaycee street
lighting plan, which followed al-
most completely in the City's street
lighting renovations last fall. Bar-
rier also headed up the committee
that painted the Stac House.
In addition to these activities,
Barrier was instrumental in the
committee that furnished the elec-
tion return tally board and super-
vised the construction of the board.

Searches for Relics Meet With Sikes
A party of four from the archae-
ological department from Florida
State University visited the propos-
ed state park area on St. Joseph
Peninsula to seek signs of the
fabled "Spanish Mission" supposed
to be in the area.
The party consisted of Dr. Hale
Smith, head of the FSU archaeologi-
cal department and students Ann
Baxter and John Eaton. They are
both majors in anthropology.
Dr. Smith added more fuel to
the supposition of an historical
Spanish mission settlement on the
Peninsula by stating that some of
the articles found definitely are of
Spanish origin predating the 1700's.'
Dr. Smith stated that his find was
not in the area purported to be the
location of the Spanish mission,
In the supposed mission area, the
excavators, found samples of Eng-
lish pottery and brick dating back
to the period between 1780 to 1850.
Site Should Be Excavated
Dr. Smith stated that while he
could not definitely say without
a close examination of shards found
in the Spanish,site, it was his opin-
ion Friday that the Spanish site
may be an' important historical
"find" and fihe felt sure the area
would be of:historical value for ex-
cavation by trained archaeologists.
He was hesitant about definitely
locating the' area of the find, since
indiscriminate digging by amateurs
would destroy some of the histori-
cal items that might be found.
Dr. Smith stated that FSU de-
votes one tri-mester to field work
in his department and it might be
possible for some area work to be
done in the coming tri-mester. He
stated that in most work of this
type, the area 'i which the work
is done usually lays the student's
living expenses wiile on site with
the University furnishing t h e
trained personnel for overseeing
the project. Dr. Smth promised to
work up some projected cost for
excavating the area aid forwarding

Jesse Stone, chairman of the St.
Joseph Peninsula state park move-
ment in Port St. Joe is in the of-
fice of Congressman Bob Sikes this
morning, along with state park of-
ficials, seeking the release of 2,000
acres at the tip of the Peninsula
for use as a state park.
Stone flew to Washington yes-
terday along with Jack Bradley,
Ray Venton and Will Rogers of the
Florida Park Service. Dr. James T.

ownership of the armed forces.

In his letter to Stone, advising
him of the meeting. Sikes stated
that he hoped the meeting would
prompt the military to release the
land to the Florida Park Service or
make arrangements to make other
land on the Peninsula available.
Park officials have expressed no
interest in other areas of the Pe-
ninsula other than the 2,000 acre
tip. This interest stems from the
topography of the land and possi-
ble historical interest. (This his-

was Jack Bradley, Administrative
Assistant for the State Park Ser-
vice. Bradley proceeded his talk
with praise for Jesse Stone, for his
untiring work in piloting the devel.
opment of St. Joseph Peninsula in-
to a state park.
Bradley gave a brief outline for
the proposed park that has been
drawn up by Ray Venton, architect
with the State Park Service.
The speaker told the Chamber
the potential of the area for a state
park was recognized back as far
as 1955 when a report from the
government's Seashore Area Sur-
vey reported, "Few seashore areas
compare with St. Joseph Spit for
recreation purposes from Key
West to the Mississippi Delta area".
Bradley reported that Stone and
representatives from the Park Ser-
vice will meet in Congresmsan Bob
Sikes' office today to seek release
of the 2,000 acre tip of St. Joseph
Peninsula for use as a state park.
Bradley stated, for thb Park Ser-
vice, "We want this area bad-
ly. With the;proper planning and
development, there is no doubt but
what the Spit will develop into one
of the finest of Florida's state
parks." He stated that the park ser-
vice will continue to do everything
possible to get this area one of the
best parks in the Southeast.

passing has been going on for the

a lot of spirit shown, especially in
the last few days before election,
which was held yesterday.

E. A. Bandjough, City Commis-
sioner of Wewahitchka appeared
before the Board and discussed
street projects in the City of We-
wahitchka. He said a resolution
from the City requesting the Coun-
ty to include certain city streets
in the next County secondary road
budget. The Board assured Mr.
Bandjough that his request would
be considered at the proper time.
The Clerk was instructed to
write to the State Road Department
requesting that the county second-
ary road projects in the present
budget be constructed at the very
earliest possible date.
Commissioner Kennedy told the
Board that it is time for the coun-
ty to take steps to have special
legislation passed to cause the
state to pay over all secondary road
funds to the county in order that
the county can do all of its road
construction. He stated that the
county can construct roads much
cheaper than the State Road De-
partment is now doing-a lengthy
discussion was had on this subject.
The Hoad Supt. told the Board
that Q. P. Wise offered to give the
county the dirt from one acre of
his property in White City, the
consideration would be for the
county to use about one third of
the dirt to level the plat at the
end of the agreement; the county
would have one year to move the
dirt. After discussion, the chair-
man told the Board that the coun-
ty needs this fill dirt, but if the
county agrees to this offer, the
Board will receive some criticism
because it will appear that the
county is doing work on private
property. This matter was tabled
until the next meeting.
Commissioner McDaniel told the
Board that he attended a work
shop meeting for County Commis-
sioners in Tallahassee this week.
There being no further business,
the meeting adjourned.

Workers should check to see if
the Social Security number shown
on their W-2 form is-correct, John
V. Carey, District Manager of the
Panama City Social Security Office,
said this week. All rights to Social
Security benefits are based on
earnings credited to an individual's
Social Security account, and an
incorrect number on your W-2 form
may indicate that you are not re-
ceiving credit for your earnings.
If you find a mistake in your
name or Social Security number,
you should contact the employer
who gave you the W-2 form, Carey
added. It is possible that your em-
ployer's records are correct, and
that the Social Security reports
have been made correctly. If this
is the case, you should merely cor-
rect the error on the W-2 form.
However, if you find that your em-
ployer has used an incorrect name
or incorrect number, you want to
