Stiff Competition Is
Offered In Contest
Bandmaster Herman Dean told
The Star this week that the Port
St. Joe High School Band made
a fine showing at the State Band
Festival in Daytona Beach last
Dean said the band did excep-
tionally well in all phases of the
contest and showed up well even
against very stiff competition
and far more critical judging
than was experienced in the Dis-
Dean said that the band's rat-
ing cannot be fully evaluated
until a judging sheet is sent out
by contest officials and see how
the local group compared with
other bands in their class. This
report should be in the latter
part of this week and should be
available for reporting in next
Dean said the band students
were praiseworthy in their de-
The thanks of the band is of-
fered to Mrs. L. C. Carter and
Mrs. A. P. Jackson, who served
as chaperones and Mrs. E. L.

City Setting Up
The first reading of an ordinance
creating a policeman's retirement
fund for Port St. Joe policemen
was read Tuesday night at the
The ordinance would set up a
plan, used by several municipali-
ties in the State of Florida whereby
insurance companies are taxed one
percent on casualty insurance sold
in a participating municipality and
up to five percent of the police-
man's pay is deducted for the re-
Michigan Chemical Corporation employees picnic last Thursday afternoon. The picnic was
and their families are shown above at a company held at the Wayside Park at Mexico Beach.
Michigan Chemical Corporation Entertains Employees
And Families With Picnic Dinner At Wayside Park Thursday
On April 29th, Michigan Chemi-
cal Corporation invited all of its
employees and their families to a
picnic at the Mexico Beach Road-
side Park. In spite of the cool
weather ,an estimated crowd of 250
people accepted the invitation and
consumed nearly 500 pounds of de-
licious food. On the menu was bar-
becued chicken, baked ham, roast
beef and fried fish, potato salad,
cole slaw, and hushpuppies.
The fish were supplied by Frank
Dama, Panama City contractor, who
has been doing construction work
at the plant. Mr. Dama brought
mackerel fillets, grouper steaks,
pompano and mullet, plus his spe-
cial hushpuppies. His two right-
hand men, Roger Melvin and Bob
Wahl, fried the fish and hushpup-
pies while Frank stood around and
watched, I mean supervised.'
The night before the picnic, the
maintenance department had a
salad making spree at the home of
Barney McCormick. The men claim
they did most of the work while
their wives did the visiting, but
somehow we don't believe it. In ad-
dition to making 80 pounds of potato
salad, they also prepared about 10
gallons of the most delicious bar-
becue sauce we've ever tasted. Ed-
win Peters claims to be the big
wheel on that deal, but Mrs. Peters
doesn't back up Ed's story at all.
Jimmy James took the cake with
a story about a flounder that ran
aground in 120 feet of water .
An electric frying pan and an
electric percolator were given
away as "door" prizes. Calvin Mad-
dox ,one of Michigan Chemical's
"most eligible bachelars," won the
frying pan, and that great coffee
lover, A. O. Boyett, won the perco-
lator. The booby prize, a set of
car keys, was won by the plant
manager. Next time keep a spare
key in your pocket, Bob.
All in all ,everyone had a won,
derful time. Michigan Chemical
Corporation extends its thanks and
grateful appreciation to all those
wonderful people who helped make
the picnic such a great success. If
you ever need good chicken cook-
ers, Bob Phillips and Bill Lyles are
available, and although their fee is
high (half of all the chicken they
cook), it's worth it. We also appre-
ciate the services of that little old
hushpuppy maker, Frank Dama,
and his fish fryers, Roger and Bob.

Sinclair Oil Property Offered
City Offered Chance To Buy
Dock, Warehouse Facilities
The City of Port St. Joe has been
offered the chance to purchase the
Sinclair Oil property on Port St.
Joe's waterfront this week. The of-
fer, in the form of a letter, was
read by Clerk Williams to the
Board Tuesday night.
The property, located between
Highway 98 and St. Joseph's Bay
lies between the Southeastern
Pipeline property and St. Joe Pa-
per Company mill property.
Included in the offer is 15.668
acres of land, a warehouse and
dock. The warehouse is of brick
and steel construction, 100 by 300
feet. The docking space is 400 feet
Sinclair's letter stated that they
paid $282,000 for the property in
1953 and have paid $4,000 a year
in taxes for the property since that
date. They offered the property to
the City for $300,000.
The Board discussed the offer at
some length with the consensus of
opinion being that the City could
-do well-to purchase the property,
but decided to try for a reduction
Clerk Williams was instructed by
Mayor Hannon to write Sinclair
and inform them of the disrepair
of the building and dock. The dock
apparently is almost beyond use
and will require extensive repairs.
On the basis of the state of condi-
tion of the warehouse and dock,
the City is asking that a lower
price tag be put on the property.
Building Code Gets
Attention of Board
The City Commission has been
made aware of items in their new
building code which are out of
date and, due to late advances in
building materials and practices,
place an undue financial hardship
on builders to comply with several
items in the code.
For the most part the offending
items are found in the design and
construction areas of the code-
areas in which recent advances
have changed such practices as use
of certain rafter materials, studs,
To remedy the situation, the
Board decided Tuesday night to
amend this section of the ordin-
ance to follow the Southern Stan-
dard Building Code on design and
Fire Chief R. H. Ellzey and As-
sistant Chief Benton Hamm are at-
tending the State Fire meeting in
Jacksonville this week end.

Here's a note from,the girls who
went to Daytona Beach and par-
ticipated in the state tournament.
We tried hard and did our very
best but due to a lot of unfavorable
circumstances, we couldn't do
much. But we had a ball and are
already looking forward to next
year in Sarasota. At least we were
represented and we all gained valu-
able experience in tournament
bowling. We hope to have about
four teams next year. Special
thanks to the sponsors who made
our trip possible.
Thank you, every one, for read-
ing this lousy column each week.

The female oyster lays about one
million eggs each year and these
float about in the water until they
are fertilized by floating sperm.
The oyster itself floats about until
it grows a shell and then attaches
itself to other shell or debris in
the water and there spends the rest
of its life.
An oyster eats and breathes by
pumping water through its shell
and body and extracting food and
oxygen from the water. On a good
feeding day, an average oyster will
pump up to 100 gallons of water

Gibson Tells Rotary
Of Phone Progress
Rotarian Roy Gibson, vice presi-
dent of the St. Joseph Telephone &
Telegraph Co., spoke to the Rotary
phone business in general in the
area served by the St. Joseph Tel.
and Tel. and of the growth of the
areas in which they operate.
In his address, Gibson stated
that the utility is in a period of ex-
pansion over their entire exchange,
modernizing and bringing tele-
phone service to everyone who
wants it in the area served. In or-
der to do this, the phone company
has secured REA money which is
available to electric and telephone
utilities for this purpose after close
investigation of the applicant.
Gibson said that the average cus-
tomer load for independent tele-
phone companies in the nation is
about 10 customers to a-mile of
line. St. Joseph's customer load is
four customers to a mile of line.
In stating growth figures for all
of the areas served by his utility,
Gibson pointed out that all of the
areas showed growth with one ex-
ception, this being Apalachicola.
Apalachicola showed a decrease in
telephones during the past year
while every other town or city in ]
their area showed growth. Gibson
tied this growth in with progres-
sive attitudes by newspapers serv-
ing'the areas in question. He point-
ed out that in communities served
by newspapers that are interested
in the community growing and
prospering, this usually comes
about, while areas with newspapers

Fire Damages Wright
Home In White City
An afternoon fire damaged the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Wright
in White City Monday afternoon
about 4:30 p. m. Cause of the fire
was not determined.
The fire was centered in the at-
tic of the home. The blaze had
made considerable headway by the
time it was discovered by neigh-
bors and reported to the White
City Fire Department.
Quick action by the White City
Volunteers and the Florida Forest
Service brought the fire under con-
trol and had it contained by the
time the Port St. Joe Department
arrived on the scene.
The house was badly damaged
inside and practically all of the
family's furnishings were de-
Alligator Is Fast
Tallahassee The alligator is
rapidly disappearing from Florida's
wilderness scene because of illegal
hunting and bootleg hide activities.
Probably the best way Florida can
hope to protect this valuable re
source and prime attraction will be
to permit licensed hunters to har-
vest a legitimate crop of alligators
under a limited open season, ac-
cording to O. E. Frye, Executive
Director, Game and Fresh Water
Frye said, "This may sound like
having your cake and eating it too.
but we feel that if licensed alli-'
gator hunters were provided a
limited open season in certain
parts of the state ,the individual
hunter would appreciate his mone-
tary interest in alligators and help
with the conservation of the spe-
cies in order to protect this source
of income. We do know that the
present regulation which complete:
ly prohibits the taking of alligators
is not working."
The Commission presently spends
about a quarter of a million dol-
lars each year in protecting the al-
ligator. This is money from the
sale or hunting and fishing li-
censes to which the alligator hunt-
er contributes nothing. The sports-
men of Florida are presently pay-
ing for the protection of the alli-
gator while the poachers pocket
the benefits through the sale of il-
A bill introduced on April 14, by
the Legislative Council would pro-
vide for a commercial license for
persons engaged in taking or pos-
sessing alligator skins, plus an as-
sessment per linear foot on all al-
ligator skins taken.
Frye said, "We feel that passage
of this commercial alligator license
will be a benefit insofar as protec-
tion of the alligator is concerned.
We believe that the legitimate op-
erators will assist us in curbing
bootleg operations just as legiti-
mate alcoholic beverage dealers
presently assist law enforcement
in coping with bootleg liquor oper-
ations. The funds resulting from
the assessment will help pay the
cost of protecting the alligator."
Frye also added, "Without the
support of the legitimate hunter
and hide buyer enforcement of the
law designed to protect the alli-
gator is both difficult and expen-
sive when the bootleg price for il-
legal hides is in the five dollar per

Is Now Getting Good
May Is Month to Honor
Our Senior Citizens
President Johnson has proclaim-
ed May a special month for the na-
tion's senior citizens-those over
65-who number nearly 19 mil-
lions. President Johnson has said
that the hopes and problems of the
aged are shared by us all and that
it is up to us to help them.
Senior citizens can look to their
Social Security district office for
the continuing friendly and cour-
teous. service which they rightfully
expect to receive, John V. Carey,
Social Security District Manager in
Panama City, Florida, said today.
We pledge a renewed effort on be-
half of the local district office staff
to maintain the high level of srv-
ice to the public generally and to
the senior citizens of northwest
Florida in particular.
Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes,
Jackson, Walton and Washington
County residents over 65 who have
not filed an application for Social
Security benefits will find it to
their advantage to get in touch
with district office personnel to
discuss filing an application. This
is true even if the individual has
not yet retired.
One possible advantage of check-
ing with Social Security now is that
some benefits may be payable even
though the person is still working.
Another advantage is that even if
no payments can be made at this
time, they can be started promptly
at the time of retirement. Nation-
ally, 14 million seniors citizens
have established their rights to
retirement benefits. But ,over a
million have not filed claims be-
