TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1963 NUMBER 31
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Rep. Ben C. Williams is introduc-
ing two pieces of legislation this J
week that will probably bear a lit
tle local controversy. L "" "'
Williams told us about his intent
on these two particular bills just
before he left for the. Legislature
and asked how we felt about them.
Of course, we couldn't give an an-
swer right then because we wanted c g, R : t i
to think about it a little and find A
out a little information.
Ben asked us to air our opinions
on his actions and we will dothat
only in the view of expressing our
opinion, not in attacking Mr. Wil-
liams actions nor from animosity.
First, we think Mr. Williams Port .
Authority bill goes a little too far.

Progress Report Presented
Commission By Clerk
City Auditor and Clerk J. B.
Williams presented the City Com-
mission with a report of the past
year's accomplishments for the pe-
rusal of the Board.
Along with the report, Williams
presented a first quarter financial
statement which showed the City
to be in good financial condition.
Commisisoner Coldewey called
to the attention of the Board that
the financial condition was brought
about by a closer enforcement of
city ordinances rather than addi-
tional taxes. Coldewey praised the
Clerk and the Board for close en-
forcement of these ordinances.
Williams pointed out that during
the past year, the city has paid off
approximately $20,000.00 to special
assessment holders for unremitted
funds; paid off a $15,000 bank
loan and purchased over $32,000
in new equipment. The major items
are: tractor and mower, police car,
dump truck, pickup truck, garbage
lcad packer, fire hose, transit level,
accounting machines, validating
machine, calculator, power saw,
small welding-cutting outfit, trash
receptacles and a used truck for
the fire department water tank.
During this period the city has:
Installed sewer system in North-
ern part of city; built a city gar-
age; installed tin roof on the city
pier; installed lights on the tennis
court in the city park; completed
a new softball field with lighting;
completed fencing of Little League
ball park; authorized installation
of new mercury vapor lights on
both sides of Reid Avenue and
supplied materials for paint of
Stac House by the Jaycees.
Major ordinances passed by the
Board include a new city occupa-
tional business license ordinance
and a new city garbage ordinance.
Currently under way by the Board
is a new comprehensive zoning or-
dinance, which is now in its final
stages of development.
Projects currently under way in-
clude waterproofing and painting
the outside of the City Hall; paint-
ing and repairing the Centennial
Building; beautifying the grounds
at City Hall; beautifying the cen-
ter strip of Fifth Street; clearing
of the Forest Park area from Fifth

ing the cemeteries.

To Supply Umps
Umpire assignments for Dixie
League Season opening Monday,
April 22, have received a boost
with several sponsoring firms each
offering to provide an umpire for
18 games of the season. Individual
assignment of dates is now being
Vitro, Ford-Western, Hard-Stars,
Container Division and Mill Divi-
sion of St. Joe Paper Company each
have signed to provide two umpires
for games each week. The umpires
will not officiate at games played
by the sponsor's team.
The Chief Umpire, Harry Babbit,
complimented these sponsors for
their whole-hearted support in de-
veloping the schedule. He stated
that arrangements are underway.
for the other sponsors to join in
the plan. The plan provides that
umpires scheduled by a team spon-
sor come first from fathers of
boys on the team, and secondly
from other men interested in the
youth baseball program whose boys
are not in the program.
It was pointed out that nine um-
pires from each team will result
in each man covering only two
games in the season. A volunteer
for umpire service should call the
sponsor if his boy is playing, or

Work will not start on the tank

Change In Sewer Charges
Wesley R. Ramsey appeared be.
fore the Board Tuesday night ask-
ing that some changes be made in
the method of charging for sewer
services. Presently, a base charge
of $1.00 is made with a percentage
of the water bill over and above
the minimum charge also charged
for sewer services.
Ramsey pointed out that with the
grass watering season coming on,
the cost of watering lawns becomes
prohibitive due to the percentage
charge for sewer services.
The proposal was for a flat 12-
month charge of $1.50 per r..nth
for sewer, lowering the cost for
sewer in the summer months, but
in some instances, raising the cost
during winter months.
It was pointed out that from past
records, the city would lose no
revenue under the plan.
Most of the Commissioners ap-
peared in favor of the proposal
but elected to think of the matter
for a while.

The Total Is What Concerns Taxpayers

importance. The total tax bite is the big thing, for that de-

This pinpoints an aspect of proposed federal income tax
reductions that deserve a great deal more attention than they
have so far received.
This year, for instance, the social security tax was in-
creased again. The tax has collected more than $100 billion
in the 26 years since the program began, according to Oregon
Tax Research. And in the next six years alone it will take
in its second $100 billion.
Practically every state is looking for more revenue, to
be gained from sales taxes, excise taxes, income taxes, pro-

Text of 'History of Old St.
Joseph Cemetery' Report
By Mrs. Ned S. Porter
(Reprinted below is the record
of history concerning the old
St. Joseph Cemetery, read by
Mrs. Porter at the dedication of
a marker at the cemetery site
two weeks ago today.)
The little that is known of this
particular memorial cemetery has
come to us mainly through the
writings of Dr. James Owen Knauss
the first qualified historian, in the
State of Florida, to give us unequi-
vocal data concerning this particu
lar last resting place.
Dr. Knauss, in his article, "The
Rise and Decline of the Old City
of St. Joseph," published 2sveral
times, beginning with 1927, in
"The Florida Historical Quarterly',
and at other times locally and by
the Florida Park Service, in pamph-
let form, informs us as to the why
and the wherefore of this specific
site. In his article there is men-
tion of three such cemeteries. The
other two, as of now, we have been
unable to locate and identify.
It is not my purpose, here and
now, to go into the history of the
old City of St. Joseph. I feel certain
most of you are aware, principally
because of our Constitution Mu.
seum, (and other information you
most likely are familiar with), that
for five years the old City of St.
Joseph had a meteoric and catas-
trophic history, of utmost import-
ance to our state, that ended in al-
most unbelievable tragedies and
disasters that swept the old city
from the face of the earth-and al-
most from the pages of history.
The first of these devastating catas-
trophies that struck the then young
and fabulous city, bringing about
its, partial demise, was the yellow
fever epidemic that ravaged the in-
habitants in the late summer and
fall of 1841.
Few of the tombstones and
crypts remaining here, excepting
that of Captain George L. L. Kup-
fer, of Boston (which is now kept
in our museum), are not thought to
be of the yellow fever victims, be-
cause, when that dire tragedy
struck, in all of its ferocity, there
would have been no time or con-
ditions for erecting proper head-
stones and building such time-resis-
tant brick and mortar crypts as you
find remaining today. The great
majority of the yellow fever vic-
tims, it is logically believed, had
to be buried in trenches. The Cap-
tain Kupfer, already mentioned, is
thought to have been the first vic-
tim of the epidemic, the disease
having been brought to this ill-
fated port by his schooner "Herald"
from the Greater Antilles.
From excellent authority, an el-
derly Apalachicola citizen of integ-
rity, John Glass, now deceased, I
learned that after the War Between
the States, during "Reconstruction
Days", numerous ancient brick
crypts and graves were torn into
and unbelievably desecrated and
molested by vandals and marau-
ders, searching undoubtedly for
jewelry, and the like, they hoped
to find on those here interred. It
was known that here were buried
some of the wealthiest men of Ter-
ritorial Florida, some of her most
illustrious statesmen and renown-
ed journalists, together with their
families. The cemetery area, now
enclosed by a fence, is thought to
be but a parcel of the area involv-
In an article appearing in "The
Apalachicola Times", October 11,
1902, supposedly written by a Rev-
erend Harrison, who with his wife,
made the trip with "Young Charlie
Mahon", driving the horse and bug-
gy vehicle from Apalachicola to
Yellow Bluff, (now Beacon Hill
Beach), in order to attend the wed-
ding of the memorable Gustave G.
Hensler to a Mrs. Helen Bryan of
Wewahitchka, at the home of the
bride's mother, Mrs. E. K. Hunter
at Beacon Hill. In the course of
the trip, over over-grown trails, the
party came upon the remains of
the old cemetery and paused long
enough to write down the names
and dates on the headstones and
number the brick vaults they found
then in existence. In 1902 there
were only three or four additional
vaults and headstones other than
are to be found here today. The
writer of this article also verifies
the story of the vandalism and de-
struction that had taken place in
the intervening 60 or more years.
Under dateline, April 12, 1912,
"The Apalachicola Times" carries
the story of an automobile caval-
cade organizing and originating at
Apalachicola, traversing the beach
area and traveling on to the Town
of Saint Joe. This cavalcade was
organized and trip made in order
to create interest in building good
roads between the two towns by
way of the beach route. The driver
of one of the cars, a prominent
young "Beau Brummel" of Apala-
chicola, in crossing what was thot
to be just an overgrown field thick
with palmettos, wiregrass, scrub
oak and other native growth, ran
headlong into a marble shaft that
marked the resting place of an
evidently prominent man of an-
other land and bygone era. Being
of intelligent and inquiring mind
he called the cavalcade to a halt
and all disembarked. What they
found in surrounding areas evident-
ly impressed Homer Lee Oliver. I
arrive at this conclusion from th-
simple fact that in 1917, five years

50 Million Workers Could
Qualify For Disability
Over 50 million workers have
enough work credits to qualify for
disability benefits under the Social
Security program if they become
disabled, according to John V. Ca.
rey, District Manager of the Pan.
ama City, Social Security Office.
The number of workers insured for
disability payments continues to
increase by about 2 million a year,
Cash disability benefits were first
paid in July 1957. Now, less than
six years later, more than 700,000
disabled workers get total payments
goes to 500,000 dependents of these
workers. In all, well over one mil-
lion people get about $76 million
a month in benefits under the So-
cial Security disability program.
Carey said that many people had
lost badly needed money because
they delayed in making their bene-
fit claims. Many workers delayed
their claims because they had not
heard about cash disability bene-
fits under Social Security.
Too requirements must be met
to qualify for disability payments,
Carey added. First, the worker
needs at least five years of work
credits. These five years of work
credits must have been earned in
the 10-year period just before he
claims his disability payments.
Second, he must be too disabled to
do any substantial work.
In judging the worker's ability
to work, the Social Security Ad-
ministration considers not only the
worker's physical condition. His
education and experience are also
taken into account. If, considering
all these factors, the worker is
found disabled to do any work, he
gets disability payments. Partial
or temporary disabilities are not
covered by the law, Carey empha-
sized. He also pointed out that dis.
ability benefits are not paid until
the seventh month of disability.
Since it takes time to collect all
the medical evidence and other in-
formation, disabled workers should
not wait to claim these payments.
"If your doctor says your disability
will be permanent, come to the So-
cial Security office right away",

If your trees are not thrifty, per-

quantities of nitrogen, phosphorus
and potassium are necessary to
keep trees from looking as if they
were "three sheets in the wind."
Most Florida soils are dificient

these deficiencies, trees make poor zer for each inch diameter of the

It's good to have time for a
little extra Tattle following the
busy, joyful Easter season. The
meaning and spirit of this mo-
mentous celebration should occu-
py a permanent place in our
hearts and guide our lives each
and every day. It is good to use
a part of our time to study, to
meditate, and give thanks to One
who mastered life and conquer-
ed death. Isn't it wonderful that
this hope was passed on to man-
kind? A Light for this life and
eternity? What more could one
wish for? Is it incredible that
we worship this Lord of all? Wil-
fred A. Peterson has this to say
in his essay on the Art of Wor-
ship: "Outer symbols create the
atmosphere and mood of wor-
ship. The altar, the cross, the
candles, the stained glass win-
dows, the silent sanctuary before
the service begins. But, whether
in cathedral or cottage the art of
worship is an inner adventure; it
is the personal practice of the

presence of God. It is resting our
weary hearts and minds on the
Everlasting Arms." We have this
privilege daily at home, at
work or play. Question: How
much are we using it?
In last week's mail: A letter
from my mother and she com-
ments: "I just looked out the
window and saw dad riding a
white horse." My dad (93) is
strictly an outdoor man. He loves
the soil and still works it with
animals that he also loves. I
sorta hope he has a horse to ride
when he goes to heaven. My mo-
ther (at 86) would be happy there
with her Bible and some good
books. However, she still might
be a little uneasy about dad fall-
ing off the horse! Well, since
they are still enjoying life and
good health time to think
about that later!

tention to this little matter of

This month, two years ago, I
returned to my home after spend-
ing 38 days in a hospital in an
ordeal with cancer. The treat-
ment I received was made pos-
sible by research that was partly
paid for by funds from the Amer-
ican Cancer Society, some of
these funds were collected by
you. You and those whom you
collected from helped me yester-
day by paying' for some of the
tremendous cancer research pro-
grams that are going on all over
In addition to Core's talk J. C.
Belin introduced Mrs. Edna Row-
ell, area director of the American
Cancer Society, who in turn intro-
duced Bill Spoon, from the Tampa
office, who spoke briefly.
