Port Has Busy Week of Activity
Port St. Joe's port was a bee hive of activity
from last Thursday through Monday of this week
as five freighters docked at the St. Joe Paper
Company docks to take on cargoes of paper and
rosin, products of the St. Joe Paper Company and
the Glidden Company.
Calling at the local port were the "Willow-
baugh of Great Britian taking on a cargo of ro-
sin; the Crofter of Great Britian loading rosin
and paper; the Finnarrow of Finland shipping
paper; the Kordun of Yugoslavia taking on rosin
and linerboard and the Alblasserdyk of Holland
All of the loading was handled by the St.
Joe Stevedoring Company which reports approx-
imately 5800 tons of cargoe were shipped out of
Port St. Joe during these four days.

NOT "DOES HE OR DOESN'T HE" but "DID HE OR DIDN'T HE"-
The controversy raged during the past week about whether or
not Christopher Columbus actually discovered America or did
Lief Ericson, way back yonder about 1000. Of course, nobody
knows for certain sure but Lief and Chris and they are in no
position to say.
We remember when we were but a lad of a kid studying Geog-
raphy there was more than a passing mention of good old Lief
Whether it was Lief or whether it was Chris who set foot on
North America first, it's certain that Christ was first to see the

the best part unless somebody proves different here, too.
CASE OF THE COPPED CAN CAPER-In the Panama City Herald
the. other day, the paper was trying to unravel the mystery of
how a City of Port St. Joe decal got on a Panama City trash

The newspaper put on the worried suggestion that maybe Port
St. Joe, in trying to extend its city limits, was also going tcFin-
elude Panama City.
We have another solution Somebody in Panama City has
stolen our trash can. We recognize the can. We have leaned
on it many a day down by Campbell's Drug Store where it
But that was in days gone by. Now modern wire containers
adorn Port St. Joe streets and maybe our accusation was too
hasty. We may be sending "relief" to Panama City now, in the
form of our old cast-off trash cans.

Mr. Khrushchev's famous statement "We will bury you", will
now mean both us and them. Mr. K. made his famous statement
as proof that the Communistic system was superior to the

But now, the Russians are threatening to adopt the formerly
hated profit system. It would indeed be ironic if their attempts
to stave off bankruptcy by adopting the profit system would
eventually make them our allies after we, with our profit sys-
tem, had spent ourselves bankrupt trying to buy the world
over to our side.
But in spite of our shortcomings, adoption of our system by,
an avowed enemy should make us stop and look at our system

The Board's action Tuesday in repealing a previous re-
solution calling for the State to take steps proper to place
the property in private hands, apparently expresses the will
Sof the majority of the people of the county.
We think it wise that the Board listen to the will of the
people, whether or not that will happens to agree with our
personal feelings or not.
Their decision not to ask the State to refrain from pur-
chase of the property for a park will not sit well with many
people. But, again, to many others, it will be welcome
Regardless what the proponents or -opponents of the
move to turn the peninsula into private property believe,
each side had many supporters. We believe those desiring
to leave the property in public hands for park purposes were
in the majority by far.
Although the park question versus the private property
question was an important decision, we think'it engendered
far too many hard feelings among our people.
We praise the County Commission for putting an end
to the situation by their action. We feel that without the
sanction of the official oice of Gulf County urging action
to the contrary, the State will continue to proceed to pur-
chase the 1747 acres for park purposes.
Both sides presented good arguments. Both sides were
intensely concerned with the future of Gulf County. This
is very good. Only time will'tell which side was wrong.
But, as we stated about four weeks ago, our fast disap-
pearing public beaches and the need for a place of relaxation
will be of far more value to our people in days to come than
something else to make a dollar from.
We admittedly are selfish in the matter. As a matter
of fact, we believe everyone on both sides of the question
had selfish motives whether they will admit them or not.
We want the perpetuation of a vacationland such as wVill be
available on the Peninsula in a large state park. That's our
prerogative. Other's don't. That's their prerogative.
But while desiring to retain the Peninsula property for
park puropses, we can understand the desire of tax payers
to have the property placed on the tax rolls for some little
relief. We can understand, because we, too, are a taxpayer.
And it's probably harder for us to pay our taxes than it is
for some others. So we are not being generous because we
can afford to. But we believe that relief in taxes will come
-within the next two years from revaluation.
REVERSING GOOD AND BAD
In addition to having a bad reputation, the ford "fili-
buster" doesn't even sound very nice. The dictionary defines
it as the use of long speeches to "block legislation," which
many folks assume is a bad thing to do, even if they may
realize that legislation is sometimes proposed which really
deserves to be blocked.
And even though Congress has long since ruled for itself
that long speeches for or against legislation should be rele-
vant to the subject, the word "filibuster" still brings to mind
for some a picture of a tired old Senator reading drearily
from a telephone book or mail order catalog to a near-empty
Now the opposite of filibuster is "cloture," which our
dictionary defines as a proceeding to stop debate in a de-
liberative body in order to secure a prompt vote. This "clo-
ture" is supposedly a good thing, because it can prevent a
filibuster which is supposed to be all bad. But when we recall
that cloture was used recently in the House of Representa-
tives to prevent deliberation and debate on a proposal to re-
peal Section 14(b) of the Taft-Hartley Act-by a small
majority-we begin to suspect that maybe cloture isn't
always such a good thing after all.
By the same token, we get the feeling that a filibuster
may not in all cases be a bad thing. Now that even the long-
est of speeches is required to have bearing on the subject, we
think that a filibuster in the Senate against repeal of Section
14 (b) could be very educational; and certainly that "prompt"
vote for repeal in the Lower House demonstrates an urgent
need for some education on the matter of a workingman's
In short, we're compelled to recognize the obvious-that
no "thing" is either good or bad except as it is given purpose
by those who use it. And we think it's a good thing that a
few courageous Senators are willing to employ that sup-
posedly bad old filibuster in defense of Section 14(b) and a
workingman's freedom of choice.
If freedom isn't worth filibustering for, what is?

is an agricultural crop that is often
taken for granted. Over 100 million
of these small trees will be planted
in Florida this winter. These seed-
lings must be planted so that we
can perpetuate our greatest nat-
ural resource, our timberlands.
The first task in the production
of seedlings is gathering seed to
plant in the nursery. The cones are
harvested from desirable seed trees
and from seed orchards in October
and November. These cones must
be mature before they are picked,
but they must not be open as the
seed would be lost.
Extraction of the seed from the
resinous cones is accomplished by
drying them on trays in a kiln at
110 deg. F. for about three days or
unit they open. The cones are then
conveyed into a tumbling machine
that removes all the seed from
them. After special cleaning and
processing ,the seed are placed in
cold storage until planting season
With the end of the shipping
season approaching in January, the
soil is prepared for the new crop
and the irrigation system is in-
stalled. The soil is leveled, fertil-
ized and harrowed. After this, the
seedbeds are laid off by middle
breakers on six foot centers so a
tiller may follow in the middles
and form the beds. The soil is these
seedbeds is very finely pulverized
by the beating action of the tiller
On this bed of extra fine soil,
the seeds are sown in eight drills
and pressed into the soil by small
rollers. The seed are sown at the
rate of about 40 per square foot,
depending on the viability of the
seed. A fine layer of ground straw
is then broadcast over the bed as a
From this time on, the seedlings
must be constantly cared for until
they are shipped to the landowners.
They must be irrigated several
times a day for the first few weeks
and less as they become older. Ap-

Changes Made In
The Social Security Amendments
of 1965 included several changes
in the disability provisions accord-
ing to John V. Carey, Social Secur-
ity District Manager in Panama
City. Of greatest importance is the
change in requirements.
Under the old law disability pay-
ments were made only to a person
having a permanent disability-one
which was expected to continue for
a long and indefinite time or re-
sult in death. "Beginning with Sep-
tember 1965," Carey explained,
"payments may be possible if the
disability is expected to last 12
calendar months. This means that
a severely disabled person who is
expected to recover and return to
work may qualify for payments
Another change allows a person
under age 65 receiving any other
Social Security benefit to change
to disability benefits if he later
becomes disabled and meets the re-
quirements based on his own work.
This may be done only if the dis-
ability benefit is larger than the
amount he was receiving. Before
the new law this could not be done.
Those people qualifying for both
Social Security disability payments
and workmen's compensation bene-
fits after June 1, 1965, may be af-
fected by the new law. The com-
bined Social Security and work-
men's compensation benefits can
not exceed 80% of the worker's
average monthly earnings prior to
his disability. Carey said that only
a small percentage of cases will be
affected by this provision.
Except for some cases involving
blindness before age 31, there has
been no change in the amount of
work needed to qualify for disabil-
ity payments or more information
about the new Social Security dis-
ability provisions contact the Social
Security office. The Social Security
office for this area is located at

In this buldng ,there is a large

with a slow moving endless belt 20

'Spirit Specialists' for Port St. Joe Sharks
Two out of three traffic accidents -and nearly three out of four traffic deaths -occur on two-lane
roads. Last Memorial Day weekend, 474 Americans died in traffic accidents. All but 12 of these deaths
were on two-lane roads. Modern, four-lane highways drastically reduce accident, injury and death rates
and result in lower insurance rates. Yet, 43 percent of Florida's primary highway system is classified as
"poor" or "critical" by engineers. The $300 million Highway Improvement Amendment provides the means
for constructing 1241 miles of new, four-lane major route improvements. Projects were selected on the
basis of traffic volume, safety hazards, condition of present facility, area economic consideration and
other sufficiency ratings prescribed by the Florida Highway Code. Provision is included for the state to
assist counties in buying rights-of-way on a 50-50 basis. One-third of the rights-of-way has already been
purchased. Florida's tremendous traffic growth has outrun the pay-as-you-build policy. The 1965 Florida
Legislature voted overwhelmingly in favor of this emergency program. You can assure Florida of an
adequate primary highway system now by voting for Amendment #4 on November 2nd.

have sinned ....." Romans 3:23. People need salvation now
as they did in the first century: ". Save yourselves from
this untoward generation." Acts 2:40. The gospel of Christ
saves men now as it did in the first century: ". It is the
power of God unto salvation. .." Romans 1:16.
Therefore, since God is the same, obedience to the gospel today
will make saved people of us as it did then, and it is true that first
century Christianity is not only possible, but actually exists today
when poeple follow the New Testament.
The churches of Christ urge a return to original Christianity. We
work for religious unity. We stress the plan of salvation originally
delivered by Christ and His apostles. There is only one way these
desirable spiritual goals can be realized .. a complete return to
the teaching of the Scripture. On this basis alone can there truly
be the "one Lord, one faith, one baptism" of first century Chris-
tianity. You can be just a Christian! Why not investigate the

Florida's Share of Nation's Wealth Is
Increasing Says Chamber of Commerce
Florida's share of the nation's
wealth is growing larger but there
is still need for improvement in the
state's economy, the Florida State
Chamber of Commerce pionted out
Sin its Weekly Business Review re-
leased this week.
"The direction, either up or
down ,in which the factors of the
state's economy are moving, may
be seen clearly when stacked beside
the national economy, 1960 and
"First, personal income of Flor-
idians in 1960 made up 2.47 per
cent of the national figure and 2.62
per cent in 1964. Stated in dollars,
this apparently small increase
meant many millions and pushed
the total income of Floridians to
$12.8 billion last year.
"In spite of the improved market
indicated by this larger income, the
per capital income of Floridians is
on the downtrend because of the
strong population increase.
"Another soft spot was a slacken-
ing of expenditures for construction
in Florida last year compared with
"Most of the other indicators
were optimistic. Gross income of
farmers and growers in Florida
made up 2.28 per cent of the na-
tional figure in 1960 and 2.64 per
cent last year.
"Assets of Florida banks grew
from 1.81 per cent of national to
1.89 per cent and life insurance in
force from 2.36 per cent to 2.54 per
"Measured in volume, rather
than in dollars, include electric
power production at 2.35 per cent
in 1960 and 2.67 per cent last year.
Passenger car registrations moved
up rapidly from 3.32 per cent to
4.90 per cent.
"During the period, Florida's
population pushed upward from
2.78 per cent of national in 1960
to 2.98 per cent on July 1, 1964.
Total employment in nonfarm es-
tablishments in the state moved
from 2.43 per cent to 2.63 per cent
and manufacturing employment
from 1.23 per cent to 1.38 per cent.
Florida's greater proportion of na-
tional population than of nonfarm
employment reflects the effect of
a large number of retirees among
the residents of the state."

To Use Sharks
The Florida Board of Conserva-
tion is embarking on a program to
utilize the tremendous potential of
sharks found in the coastal Florida
waters, according to Randolph
Hodges, director of the Florida
Board of Conservation.
Hodges stated that sharks have
been increasing in population since
the market for shark products,
such as vitamin A found in their
liver, hides for leather and fins for
soup fell off.
He said sharks do untold amount
of damage to commercial fisher-
men's nets, especially during the
mackerel season, and any reduc-
tion in the numbers will be wel-
comed by the fishermen.
The program will experimental-
ly evoluate the potential of the
shark as a source of food for hu-
man consumption, as a meal for
stock feed, and as an economical
source of bait for crab fishermen.
Private industry will obtain,
freeze, ship and store specimens
for laboratory tests, and if condi-
tions permit, locally caught fresh
sharks may be obtained from party
boat donations for additional ex-
Because shark meat "goes off"
(spoils) more quickly than fish
flesh, the shark has to be absolute-
ly fresh in order to be prepared for
human consumption. It should not
be bruised, thrown about, left in
the sun ,nor should it be left in a
metal container because of a chemi-
cal change which takes place in the
shark's flesh. Careful handling,
proper chilling, and extreme clean-
liness will be observed throughout
all operations to prevent any de-
composition in the animal's tissue
which is one of the problems that
has always plagued the handling of
Experimental production of dry-
cured, cold smoked, dogfish has
been successfully carried out in
Russia, the same basic process will
be followed during this experiment.
The dogfish resembles dry-cured
sturgeon in-taste and appearance,
but is somewhat dry. The fillets
will be packed in 25 pound lots,
wrapped in wax paper and kept in
a dry, cool place for examination
after being processed.

Gulf Cablevision Announces
Cable T V Has Started
The cable has been placed from 1st St., to the Centennial Building in the
City of Port St. Joe, and it is anticipated that when a sufficient number of sub-
scribers can be obtained from 1st Street to Avenue G, the cable will be placed
in this area, and when a sufficient number of subscribers can be obtained, the
cable will be extended to Oak Grove. A Sales campaign will be started in the
very near future in these areas to obtain the necessary number of subscribers.
At this time, reliable television signals are provided on Channel 4, Chan-
nel 6 and Channel 7. The television signals received for Channel 3 and Chan-
nel 10 are reliable approximately 40% of the time; however, work is in
progress, and it is hoped that these signals will be improved in the future.
Channel 3 will be received as Channel 2 on your television set and Channel
10 will be received as Channel 9 because of technical arrangements which
had to be made at the receiving antenna site.
Gulf Cablevision Company has arranged with St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company for the telephone company to handle applications, serv-
ice connections, answer service calls, and perform all the collections for the
Cable TV srevice in Port St. Joe.
Applications for service will be handled in the same manner as applica-
tions for telephone service. That is, you may -apply at the local telephone
business office or call 227-5141 if you desire to have a Cable TV connection
made at your home. The charge for the Cable TV service is $5.00 per month
payable in advance with the charge beginning October 15th, 1965 .This means
you will receive the first bill for Cable TV service November 15th 1965 and on
the 15th of the month thereafter.
There is no connection charge being assessed at this time; however, it is
anticipated that after January Ist, 1966, a service connection charge will apply.
The telephone company will handle repair service for Cable TV in the same
manner as it handles repair service for the telephone company. If you have
an occasion to report a trouble with your Cable TV service, you should call
227-8911 between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., Monday through Fri-

wahitchka High School.
The Board discussed its recent
decision to have the school buses
parked after the morning run at
the last school serviced until time
for the afternoon run. Several
drivers had complained that it
worked a hardship on them. The
Board maintained its position that
the move was'made to save money
in the transportation system. The
Board expressed its regrets at any
inconvenience that had arisen for
some of the drivers. The Board au-
thorized Mrs. Marie Cramer of the
Indian Pass Community to return
home after the morning run in the
school bus until a replacement
could be secured for her on the
Indian Pass route.
There being no further business,
the Board adjourned to mee again

The Board discussed the possibil-
ity of changing the Port St. Joe
High School into an elementary
school. This would allow maximum
use of the present facilities, especi-
ally the gymnasium, the new cafe-
teria and the auditorium. The en-
tire building would be renovated
to specifications for elementary
children. This move would not be
made until an architect studied the
present plant and recommended
what alterations would be neces-
sary. If this plan proves feasible, a
new Junior-Senior High School
could be built without duplicating
any of the present facilities. Full
use of the facilities at both schools
could then be realized.

Have You Asked Yourself
Why should you travel extra miles and use up
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern- distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs that in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
HOW can this community grow and prosper,
provide Career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches
hospital, and other community facilities?
ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid
and contributions made by our local business peo-
ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build a
better community for you.

Port St. Joe, Florida
September 16, 1965
The Board of County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County, Florida, met
this date, pursuant to recess called
September 14, 1965, with the fol-
lowing members present: James G.
McDaniel, Chairman, Leo Kennedy,
Walter Graham, T. D. Whitfield,
and James C.. Horton. The Clerk
was also present.
The meeting came to order at
7:00 P. M. The Clerk opened the
meeting with prayer.
The Chairman announced that
this meeting is called pursuant to
recess taken on September 14, 1965,
for the purpose of holding a public
hearing on whether or not the com-
mission should adopt a resolution
requesting the State of Florida to
refrain from purchasing additional
land on St. Joseph's Peninsula in
order that this land may be releas-
ed for private development.
The Chairman called on the Hon.
Silas R. Stone to present the matter
on behalf of the Chamber in order
that all present may be fully ad-
vised as to why this proposal has
been presented to this Board for
Hon. Silas R. Stone came before
the Board and explained that it was
his feelings and the feelings of
many Gulf County business men
that the present St. Joseph Pen-
insula State Park is more than
adequate in size to accommodate
its needs, and that an additional
1,747 acres would be wasteful and
against the best interest of Gulf
County. He stated that if this land
were sold to individuals it would
mean many millions of dollars add-
ed to the tax assessment rolls of
Gulf County. He continued to dis-
cuss this matter at length.
The following citizens spoke in
favor of adopting the resolution:
W. C. Roche, W. B. Simmons, Cecil
Curry and Bill Quarles, Jr. Those
speaking against the adoption were:
Charles Brown, Mrs. Charles Brown,
Hon. Cecil G. Costin, Jr., Hon. Ben
