County Levies 30.3 Mills
Tuesday for New Tax Year
Increases Show Up In Road and
Bridge and Capital Outlay Funds
The Gulf County Commission set their millage at a
record 30.3 mills Tuesday after a full day of hearings and
discussion. The millage-and budget were passed as adver-
tised in last week's issue of The Star. Along with the bud-
get of the Board of Public Instruction levy, Gulf County
tax payers will be assessed a total of 52.3 mills in the com-
ing tax year.
The millage levy will finance a
total budget of $685,378.51.
Spending for the new budget
year is some less than last year in
all funds with two exceptions. The
Fine and Forfeiture Fund is the
same as last year, which finances
the Sheriff's Department and the
Judge's office. The other increase
was in Capital Outlay which was
increased by five mills over last
year. This fund will provide money
to pay for building a new court
house in Port St. Joe. This item had
no millage levy last year.
Taxes in virtually all other funds
are the same as last year, with but
one notable exception. The Road
and Bridge fund has been increas-
ed by 6.3 mills over last year. This
is due to loss of race track money
to the Gulf County School Board.
This item has been largely financ-
ed by race track money in the past.
Two objections were made to the
budget in the -legal hearing Tues-
day. W. C. Roche, a Port St. Joe
businessman offered the opinion
that the new budget was out of
proportion with other counties the
size of Gulf. Roche especially hit
at the Road Fund, which he felt
paid out too much per mile of
road to be maintained. He said that
this fund was far out of proportion
to like budgets in other counties.
Tom Coldewey, also of Port St.
Joe agreed with Roche's contention
that the Road and Bridge budget
was far too large for the work they
had to do. He suggested that the
budget be cut some by charging
cities in the county for work per-
formed and reducing this charge
from money that will be owed the
cities from the budget, by law.
Want To Delay Adoption
The Board, for the most part,
wanted to delay adoption of the
new budget until after the court
hearing of an attempt to recover
some of the race track funds. At-
torney William J. Rish advised the
Board that they must have a bud-
get approved by October 1, accord-
ing to law, so the budget was ap-
proved, along with the mill levy.
Two requests were made of the
new budget, which were not in-
cluded in the advertised item. W.

Sharks Open Season Tomorrow In Apalach
Port St. Joe's Sharks will begin their 1965
football season tomorrow night against the Apala-
chicola, Sharks in Apalachicola. Game time is 8:00
Coach Wayne Taylor, making his debut as
head football coach for Port St. Joe with this:
season, reports that there are 53 boys in the football
program this year, with 31 making up the varsity
squad. The remainder of the squad will make up the
"B" team and is composed of freshmen and sopho-
Coach Taylor said that the team is rebuilding
this year virtually from scratch. Only one. boy
on the, current Shark squad was a regular on the
team last year, Larry Branch, who plays the posi-
tion of right guard. Jerry Nichols, Ricky Thursbay,
and Jerome Barnes saw limited action last year,
but not enough to be the seasoned veterans that
Taylor says the team needs.
"All we need is experience and speed", said
Taylor. "The team is good size, though several op-
ponents-including Apalachicola-are bigger, the
will to play and practice has been great. The knock-
ing in practice has been the best I have ever seen
in Port St. Joe", the new coach said.
Himself a product of the Port St. Joe gridiron,
.Taylor had unlimited praise for the team spirit
and desire to win. "We will be hampered only by
lack of experience and speed, which will probably
hurt us bad", Taylor said.
Taylor says he plans to substitute freely to
gain experience for boys coming along for future
teams. "We're rebuilding for the future", Taylor
said;:"but we will not sacrifice a chance to win to
gain experience. We have two pretty evenly match-
ed teams that we can field, and we will use their
talents to the fullest throughout the season".
In speaking of the Sharks offensive potential,
Taylor said that it will be spotty. "We have three
quarterbacks on the squad, none of which have
played in a varsity game before". Quarterback Tom-
my Atchison played some last year, but a separated
shoulder muscle two weeks ago will make his sta-
tus questionable tomorrow night.
Other injuries which will probably impair the
Sharks in their season opener include a sprained
ankle to fullback Jimmy Cox and an infected leg
of guard Robin Downs.

Presbyterian Women Meet for Last
Session of Current Church Year
The last official meeting of the
Presbyterian Women of the Church
was held at the home of Mrs. L. S.
Bissett on Monday, Sept. 13, at 3:30
)'clock. The new church year begins
in October with the new officers
The meeting was called to order
and opened with prayer by the out-
"The Church in the World" was
the topic of the final Bible study
taken from Ephesions 6:10-24. One
main thought brought out by Paul
in these few last verses is that we
are powerful conquerors only when
we have put on the whole armor of
God and then only can we stand
against the evil of the day in which
we live. The author also challeng-
ed in the statement that "the
church is thrust forth into daily life
to live as His body upon the earth."
This statement brings about a feel-
Ing of deep gratitude and humility
on one hand and then realizing how
short we fall of perfection it is in
His grace alone that we can dare
to associate ourselves with a con-
gregation known as "His body."
This year's study of Ephesians has
been a very rewarding experience.
We should thank God for Chris-
tians like Paul, who "put on the
whole armor of God" and through
His power and strength and inspi-
ration gave mankind portions of
God's Holy Word.
The lesson was closed with pray-
er and the business meeting was
begun with the secretary, Mrs. S.
R. Brown, reading the minutes of
the last meeting. The treasurer,
Mrs. H. A. Campbell, gave a full
report on the finances of the Wom-
en's work and balanced out the
books to begin the new year in Oc-
tober. It was voted on and passed
that the remaining money be ap-
plied to clothing for the Circle's

child. Mrs. L. S. Bissett is chairman
of the project and Mrs. Geneta Mal-
lett offered her assistance in any
way. There were no reports from
committee chairmen. The birthday
bank was opened and the group
voted to spend that money for
plants to fill the planter at the
door of the new church. The work

will be the book of Acts. Mrs. R.
M. Spillers, chairman of "Christian
Community Action," gave a report
on her work and made plans for

shine Basket." It was called to the
attention of the group tat the in-
stallation service for the incoming
officers is to be this Sunday, Sep-
tember 19th, at the morning wor-
ship hour. The new officers are:
Mrs. R. M. Spillers, president.
Mrs. S. R. Brown, Vice President.
Mrs. J. R. Smith, Secretary.
Mrs. H. A. Campbell, Treasurer.
Mrs. Charles Smith, Historian.
These officers will serve through
September of 1966.
The outgoing president called
upon Mrs. Spillers for any word
she may have for the group. Plans
were then made for the October
meetings. The general meeting will
be held at the church on Monday,
October 4, at 3:30. Mrs. S. R. Brown
will be in charge of the program.
The Circle Bible study will be on

The president expressed her gra-

are.working hard for this goal.
On August 30th as we began the
new school year our campus greet-
ed us with, many new looks. Sev-
eral rooms as well as book lockers
had been repainted. Many new
desks had been added to the class-
rooms. New paint shone on the out-
side also. New shrubbery had been
planted all around the campus.
Many of our teachers were busy
this summer as they ,like many stu-
dents, attended summer school. A
display of art work which Mrs. Mc-
Connell did while attending classes
was featured in the front bulletin
board for a week.
This year our faculty has been
added to and of course each new
addition is a good one. Mr. Peter-
son is the latest arrival. He teaches
senior high science and arrived on
September 7th, just four days after
receiving his degree.
Already the clubs and organiza-
tions are astir with activity. The
Student Council sponsored a "get-
acquainted" dance Friday night for
the student body. Many new proj-
ects have been undertaken and
their effects are now being seen.
Members of D. C. T. are selling
shirts and the "Purple Wave" staff
is working hard on its first edition
for this year. New officers for clubs
and classes have been elected.
With homecoming just around the
corner all clubs will be busier than
We are really looking forward to
the beginning of our football sea-
son. A bonfire pep rally will kick
things off tonight as we prepare to
do battle with Chapman High.
Spirit is high and we are looking
forward to a good season. The best
sportsmanship displayed by all
will make the coming season more
enjoyable. Our band, majorettes,
cheer-leaders, and of course, our
team and coaching staff have work-
ed hard for this season. Let's all
offer them our best support.

MARSH HEN HUNTING BEGAN
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
Tallahassee-Marsh hen hunters
opened Florida's 1965-66 hunting
season at sunrise Saturday, Septem-
ber 11, according to W. B. Cope
land, Chairman, Game and Fresl
Water Fish Commission. The day's
hunting will end at sunset.
Hunting the migratory rails and
gallinules (marsh hens) will be al
lowed for 65 consecutive days end
ing November 19. Bag limit for all
rails and gallinules is 15 for a day's
bag and 30 for total possession.
The clapper rail will be the pri
mary species taken. Other promin
ent species include the Virginia
king ,black and sora rail. Hunters
will also take the Florida and pur
found throughout the State, th(
Although rails and gallinules are
majority of the 'hunting is done ir
tidal marsh areas along the coast
lines. Most of the successful mars
hen hunting is done in a tier of six
counties along Florida's northeast
coast-Nassau, Duval, St. John
Flagler, Volusia and Brevard Coun
ties--and four counties along thE
western Gulf coast Bay, Gulf
Franklin and Wakulla.
Hunting in other counties is be
coming more popular as more hunt
ers take advantage of early hunt
ing dates applying to marsh hens
It has been estimated that Flor
ida hunters harvest from 45,000 te
60,000 marsh hens each season.
Under the Migratory Bird Act
marsh hen hunters must have thei:
shotguns plugged to three-shel
capacity. Rifles are always pro
hibited when taking migrator:

KIRKMAN SAYS 14,560 ARRESTS
HAVE BEEN MADE IN MONTH
Tallahassee Florida Highway
Patrol Director, H. N. Kirkman re-
ported today that 14,560 hazardous
moving arrests have been made by
troopers during the first month of
the Florida Highway Patrol's spe-
cial enforcement program. These
arrests were made on pre-selected
roads in high accident frequency
All of these moving arrests have
been made in the high accident
areas and the majority occurred
when motorists failed to yield the
right of way violated stop signs
and signals, drove over the center
line ,made improper lane changes;
followed too closely; and operated
at a rate of speed which was un-
lawful or unsafe for the conditions.
"The Patrol's Additional-Traffic-
Enforcement-Program which start-
ed a month ago," Kirkman said,
"has been aimed directly at curb-
ing Florida's highway death toll by
the uses of additional personnel
over and above those normally as-
signed in the high accident areas
with specific instructions to rigid-
ly enforce the law."
Commander Kirkman concluded
by saying, "Even though Florida's
death toll has shown signs of slow-
ing down, the Florida Highway Pa-
trol troopers will continue their
all out efforts to further reduce
these tragic and unnecessary deaths
on our highways."

SJohn Howell, a representative of
the Florida Pharmaceutical Associ-
ation ,spoke to the Kiwanis Club on
Tuesday telling the club of some of
the Federal encroachments in the
medical field that his organization
feels will be detrimental to the
health of the nation.
Howell pointed out that the citi-
zens of the United States have the
best health facilities, the healthiest
people, better medicines, and are
longer lived than any other nation
in the world. Howell laid this situ-
ation to the free enterprise system
which has put the U. S. foremost
*in drug discovery in the world.
Howell pointed out a comparison
when he stated that Russia, which
has state-controlled medicine, has
not discovered a major drug in
the past 22 years, content to reap
the benefits of the discoveries of
The speaker said that the so-
called medicare bill is the first step
to federally controlled medicine,
and for this reason, his Association
fought the bill. He declared that
the state and local programs along
these lines were much more effec-
tive and provided a broader scope
of medical assistance than does the
new federal program. He also said
that Americans will pay back seven
times their recent excise tax sav-
ings in the next three years to fi-
nance the new medical program.
Guests of the club were Tommy

Jackson Tells of
Gulf County Civil Defense head,
A. P. Jackson, told the Rotary Club
last Thursday that the Gulf County
Civil Defense has a plan of protec-
tion for Gulf County citizens ready
to put into action when it is needed.
Jackson said that a communica-
tions set-up has been planned for
to give instantaneous information
from the Apalachicola weather sta-
tion over the local radio station in
case of hurricane danger. This
method will be used to give resi-
dents immediate warning of what
to do in case of an emergency.
Also several shelter stations
have been chosen and shelter cap-
Jackson pointed out that the ma-
jor damage from Betsy was rising
water and emphasized his point by
stating that the ground where the
Hotel stood was only four feet
above sea level and would surely
take on large amounts of water in
case of a bad hurricane, as would
the surrounding streets which serve
as arteries of travel to and from
important areas of the city.
Civil Defense headquarters will
be manned round the clock in case
of a hurricane with communications
to all shelters for instant location
of families and loved ones should
a storm strike. The Civil Defense
telephone number is 227-5211.
Guests of the Club were Tom
Coldewey, Tom Spackman of Jack-
sonville, Dr. Richard Morley and
George Bond, both of Panama City.
The Port Theater reluctantly an-
nounced that the admission prices
for the downstairs portion of the
auditorium must be increased. The
new admisison prices will be forty
cents for children and eighty-five
cents for adults. The price change
was effective Sunday, Sept. 13,
Mr. David R. Smith, the owner
manager of the Port Theatre, said
that the change was made because
of an increased cost of films for
the. theater, a desire to have the
theater itself pay for improvements
in seating and comfort in the lower
auditorium, and make a greater
price difference between the bal-
cony area and the downstairs area.
Mr. Smith further stated that a
greater price differential between
the balcony and downstairs audi-
torium seems advisable in view of
national conditions, and that in
cities where the price differential
is great, there has been consider-
able improvement in conditions
Mr. Smith. also announced that
"family" nights would be held on
Tuesday evenings instead of Wed-
nesdays and that the entire family
-Mom, Dad and all children under
12 would be admitted for 75 cents.
Mr. Smith stated that "family"
nights could be only on designated
pictures, and that the Family Night
pictures would be identified as
such on the theater's monthly pro-
gram as well as in "The Star" and
advertised as such on WJOE.
Family night was changed from
Wednesday to Tuesday to allow as
little confusion as possible for the
Wednesday matinees which will be
starting this week. You are asked
to note that the first Wednesday
matinee feature will be "Having a
Wild Weekend," starring "Dave
Clark Five" in their first feature.
"Having a Wild Weekend" will
play Sept. 15, 16, 17, and the Wed-
nesday matinee will begin promptly
at 4:30 P. M., E.S.T., and end early
enough for the children to finish
homework and get to bed early for
school the next day.
In addition, Mr. Smith also an-
nounced that the theater would
run a special Morning Kiddies
Show every six weeks correspond-
ing with school evaluation days and
that admission to the shows would
be announced later.
The theater will also begin play-
ing a Late Show attraction approxi-
mately every two to three weeks.
These Late Shows will also be an-
nounced in The Star.-adv.
