Donofro Hired to
ew Courthouse, Jail
Contract Will Be Signed This Week
With Marianna Architectural Firm
The Gulf County Commission agreed to contract with
the firm of Joseph L. Donofro of Marianna for architectural
services in designing and drawing plans for the new Gulf
County Courthouse at their meeting Tuesday night.
Donofro approached the Board on May 11 seeking the
opportunity to serve the county in this capacity. No action
was taken at the time, but a motion by T. D. Whitfield to
hire the Donofro firm met with approval of the Board
Although the vote was not una-
nimous, the selection of Donofro
met little opposition from members
Leo Kennedy and Walter Graham
who did not vote for retaining the
Kennedy stated that he could
not yote for the selected architect
in the light of'an impending law-
suit against the county from archi-
tect Norman P. Gross, whom the
county refused to sign a contract
with prior to work beginning on
the rew courthouse.
Gioss contended that he had an
agreement with the Board to de-
sign the new 'Courthouse and Jail
but the Commission felt different-
ly since no contract had been sign-
ed with the Panama City Architect
for the job.
County Attorney William J.
Rish told the Board that Gross'
attorney had called him Monday
and stated that Gross would ask
for $15,000 from the County for
services rendered to date on the
new Courthouse, which he had
performed with no written agree-
ment with the county.
Kennedy stated that the asking
figure of Gross amounted to a mill
which would in all probability not
.be asked for if the County hired
Gross. "I'm just reluctant to spend
that extra mill for nothing", said
He voted "no" on the motion.
Commissioner Graham did not
vote on the motion due to virtually
the same reasons as Kennedy and
because he felt the work of sev-
eral architects should be inspected
before hiring one.

ton and the Chairman, McDaniell

Down Extension to
Liquor Sale Hours
A petition was presented the
County Commission Tuesday night
asking for extension of the liquor
sale hours on Friday and Saturday
The petition asked that liquor
establishments outside municipal-
ittes be allowed to stay open until
2:00 a.m. Presently the county
requires closing by state-law which
limits liquor sales to 12:00 mid-
night. The county has the author-
ity to extend these legal hours.

thumbs down on the request.
Chairman McDaniell stated that
he did not advocate the sale of

On May 20 and 21 the Gulf Coun-
ty. director of .Civil Defense head-
ed a party of county citizens who
attended a seminar covering the
creation of an emergency 200-bed
hospital and its equipment in the
event of an enemy attack or a de-
clared natural disaster.
The seminar was conducted by
U. S. Public Health Service and
F.I.C.U.S personnel from the Uni-
versity of Florida and Florida State
University. The sessions were held
in Panama City at the auditorium.
The faculty had set up part of
the contents of an emergencyy hos-
Spital and demonstrated the use of
such equipment as Polariod X-ray
machines; stomach pumps, steriliza-
tion, autoclaves, and anesthetic
equipment. In addition there was a
large display of surgical instru-
ments and chemicals.
After the demonstration of the
equipment, in which the group par-
ticipated, a lecture wae held in a
classroom and films of actual use
of a hospital was shown. The film
covered the disaster accurring as

Members of Beta Beta Chapter
of the Delta Kappa Gamma So-
ciety met Saturday, May 15 ,at the
home of Mrs. Herbert Brouillette
at St. Joe Beach.
Mrs. Brouillette presided at the
business meeting which was open-
ed with an inspirational devotion
given by Miss Lurlene Dabbs of
Panama City. Mrs. Brouillette re-
ported on the State Convention
which she recently attended in
Tampa. Louise Miles of Panama

as a new member.
After adjournment of the busi-
ness session, a delicious outdoor
Inncheon was served.
The program, which followed the
luncheon, was presented by Mrs.
J. J. Wilkins ,assisted by Mrs. Earl
Preston and Mrs. Fletcher Jones. A
most impressive tribute was paid
to Dr. Annie Webb.Blanton, who,
with. evenn other women repre-
senting a cross section of. educa-
tional work, started the Society on
May 11, 1929, in Austin, Texas.
Dr. Blanton envisioned the Delta
Kappa Gamma Society as a med-
ium through which women leaders
in education might gain recogni-
tion. Individual candles were light-
ed in honor of the founders, and a
triangle was formed to symbolize
the triple compact shared by mem-
bers of the Society. Those present
then dedicated themselves anew to
be loyal to the purposes anid poli-
cies of Delta Kappa Gamma ,to co-
operate in the programs of work
of the Society, and to hold high the
ideals of this fellowship. The -en-
tire group joined in singing the
official Delta Kappa Gamma song.
Gold candle holders used in the
program were presented as a gift
to the Chapter by Mrs. Watkins.

of the services offered by the local
branch of the Northwest Regional
Mrs. Patton pointed out that
with Gulf's participation in the li-
brary system of $15,000 per year
the county could not expect to have
much in library services. But by
cooperating with the Northwest
Regional Library, which serves Bay,
Washington and Gulf Counties, Gulf
County can have the benefits of
unlimited library resources.
Mrs. Patton pointed out that
were Gulf, to try to finance an in-
dependent library with their avail-,
able money they could not even
purchase the books now available
under the present setup. She also
emphasized that the cooperative
plan also aids the other counties
in the system by creating a district
with enough population to be elig-
ible for matching funds to supple-
ment local money.
The Librarian reported that the
Regional Library has access to over
40,000 books and with a little time
can secure reference books on any
subject that a citizen might desire.
Guest of the club was Hal Jenk-
ins of Panama City.
Jacksonville The number of
Florida marriages rose 49 per cent
during the last decade but dropped
from 8.1 to 7.8 per 1,000 popula-
tion, the State Board of Health
says. In 1955 there were 29,904
marriages and 44,676 in 1964.
Everett H. Williams, Jr., director
of the Bureau of Vital Statistics,
said grooms averaged about three
years older than brides; divorced
grooms four years older than di-
vorced brides and widowed grooms
10 years older than widowed
There were 23,536 divorces grant-
ed in 1964, an increase of 19 per
cent over the 19,786 in 1955.' How-
ever, the rate per 1,000 population
dropped from .4 to 4.1-down 24
per cent. Williams said, however,
it should be noted that prior to Oc-
tober 1957 Florida's law required
only 90 days residence for divorce.
Now it is six months.
The average length of marriages
which ended in divorce in 1964
was seven years. Minor children
were involved in 55 per cent of the
Major legal causes of separation
reported were: extreme cruelty in

"When a worker in your family
dies ,some member of the family
should inquire at the Social Secur-
ity office to see if survivors bene-
fits are payable," John V. Carey,
Social Security District Manager
in Panama City, advises.
Death in the family, especially
where there are young children,
can mean the shattering of dreams
and hopes for the children's fu-
ture. Social Security benefits can
mean the difference between the
shattered dreams and the security
of a continuing income and a
happy home life.
According to Carey, nine out of
ten young children and their moth-
ers can count on the survivors'
benefits to keep, the family to-
gether. Survivors benefits may be
payable to young children when
the mother, who has been working,
dies, even though the father is
thle family's primary source of
Nearly 4% million survivors of
deceased workers are receiving
monthly benefits. The average
benefit paid to a widowed mother
with two children is about $190

When you have a Prescription
filled do you take a few pills
or a few soonfuls and then
put It on the shelf and forget
about it? If you do, you are
jeopardizing your health. Follow
your Doctors instructions to
the letter-take all of the Pro.
scription. Then go back to your
doctor. He'll tell you whether
or not to havehe Prescription
te-filled. There are too many
half-filled bottles in medicine
chests, mute testimony that YOU
PAID for your doctor's advice
, and didn't follow it. You might
as- well frame your doctor's
Prescription as to take only a
part of it. The post importahl
business we have is filling your
Doctor's Prescription. Your most
important job is taking it.

Port Theatre Is
Sold This Week
This week the Port Theatre in
Port St. Joe changed ownership.
The local theatre has been owned
by the Martin Theatre chain since
its establishment in Port St. Joe.
The owner, a corporation headed
by D. Rollyn Smith,, has recently
sold three drive-in theatres to the

owns four drive-ins in Georgia in
addition to the Port.
Smith is currently in Port St.
Joe and says that he or another
officer of the corporation will re-
side in Port St. Joe and manage
the local theatre.
The new owners are beginning
an extensive remodeling of the
theatre. They plan to present en-
tertaining 'pictures, with some kid-
die matinees in their plans. At
present, Smith says that experienc-
ed operators are already on the
job and improvements in \the pic-
ture .quality and continuity and
sound have already been effected.

The melodicas which are used in
the music enrichment classes were
purchased with this money. Any-
