The County Board members sug-

County owes the City.
The County law-makers pointed
out that it could possibly be two

areas if they were drained.
As an example of what can be
gained from drainage, here is the
data taken on a typical plot. This
plot was taken in Wetappo Swamp
where the water is currently' two
to three feet deep. A slash pine
was bored and found to be 97 years
old and 12 inches in diameter. This
tree was averaging only a little
better than one tenth of an inch
per year in diameter growth. But
during the very dry years from
1954 through 1956 when Wetappo
Creek was a mere trickle, this
tree began growing at a rate 4 to
5 times faster than the previous
rate. After this dry period was over
and the water again filled Wetappo
Swamp, this tree immediately re-
turned to its slow growth rate. You
can easily see that this drainage
system will greatly increase the
timber growth in these wet areas.
t This proposed watershed will

Gulf County with some 6,000 in
Calhoun County .The lower end of
the watershed will be near Over-
street where Wetappo. Creek is al-
ready at mean sea level.
In summary, the survey party
found that drainage would greatly
increase the amount of timber
growth that can be expected on
the watershed. It is now up to the

Garden Club Meets
With Mrs. Sykes
The March meeting of the Port
St. Joe Garden Club was held
Thurs. March 10 at.the home of
Mrs. W. D. Sykes. A most inter-
esting program on Wild Flowers
was given by Mrs. Ralph Nance.
She illustrated her talk by showing
many pressed and mounted speci-
mines. These were fall flowers and
all were collected in the vicinity of
Port St. Joe. She. spoke on the im-
portance of protecting our Wild
.Flowers, many of which are host
plants for insects that polinate
our domestic fruit blossoms. She
showed a specimine of Sea Oats
our beaches by preventing erosion.
Destruction of the Sea Oat means
destruction of our beaches. They
are now on the protected list and
may not be harvested commercially
Individuals may gather what seed
heads they need for arrangements.
Commercial cutting did not leave
any for reseeding. Bulldozing and
cutting roadways destroy the roots
and washing rains and blowing
winds starts erosion.
CARD OF THANKS
While our hearts are filled with
sorrow, we are not unmindful of
the many kindnesses shown us dur-
ing the loss of our beloved Frank-
lin Rudolph Pippin.
We express our deepest appre-
ciation to neighbors and friends
who brought food and to the Honey
ville Methodist Church, the First
Baptist Church and First Metho-
dist Church at Wewahitchka for
preparing and serving meals, to
those sending beautiful flowers and
cards and especially to the Rev. G.
T. Hinton and the Rev. W. J. Run-
nels and also the Masonic Lodge at
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka and
to the friends serving as pallbear-
ers. We appreciate the sympathet-
ic services of Prevatt Funeral
Our humble prayer is that God
will richly bless each one who had
a part in making our burden easier

their plea and prayer.
It is not that they believed the
saints could do for them what we
know only God can do. But as a
mother's intercession for her child
to the father may help the child's
cause, so in this way would they
be helped by the saints.
The Bay in our area was named
after Saint Joseph. He is the pat-
ron saint of Saint Joseph's Church
and this city also bears his name.
This Saturday, March 19, is the
Feast Day of Saint Joseph. Saint
Joseph's Church will celebrate a
special Mass at 5:30 p.m. A social
hour will follow with Mrs. Joseph

To Transfer VA Loan
St. Petersburg, Fla. M. T. Dix.
on, of the Fla. Dept. of Veterns Af-
fairs, stated that many veterans are
desirous of knowing how they may

ed that one method is to require

is to have the purchaser assume all

sumtion agreement and specifically
release the Veteran from further
liability to the Veterans Adminis-

A SECOND CHANCE

Horselovers take note of a book
about a boy and-a horse and a
special challenge. The boy, a young
delinquent; the horse, a valuable

"Thus Saith The Lord"
By REV. BILL GRAHAM
The next verse we shall share to-
gether in this series of rightly div-
iding will be found in I Corinthians
chapter nine, verses 26 and 27, as
follows: "I therefore so run, not as
uncertainly: so fight I, not as one
that beateth the air: but I keep
under my body, and bring it into
subjection: lest that by any means,
when I have preached to others, I
myself should be a castaway." This
is one of the verses so often used
in an effort to prove that a person
once saved could at a later date for
various reasons lose that salvation.
This however is completely un-
true and as we examine it we shall
see what the purpose of this verse
was for; just why Paul wrote it.,
Notice in this chapter that ser-
vice is dealt with not salvation,
for accurate and timely informa.
tion about the enemy.
THE SMILING REBEL

known and most glamorous spies

based this authentic novel on her

In other words Paul is saying
that if he is to receive the reward
for faithful service, he must be
Spiritually fit and conduct his min-
istry according to the rules the
Lord has laid down. Paul likens it
to a race. In order to run in the
race the runner had to qualify. In
those days of Greek races the run-
ner had to be able to prove himself
of pure Greek blood. Secondly, he
had to run accordingly to the rules
sat down by the judge and then, as
he ran, it was necessary for him to
exercise absolute discipline over
his body movement so that he
would make no move that would
hinder his speed. Should he fail
to measure up, he would be dis-
approved and lose the reward of a
crown but still be of Greek blood.
So service to the Lord is likened
to a race. First of all, only those
of pure blood are allowed to run
for Him, that is those who have
been washed in the blood of the
Lamb. Secondly they must exercise
discipline over their lives and live
a life pleasing to the Lord, that is,
they must be spiritually fit. Then
they must carry out their ministry
according to the rules, doing what
the Lord says, when the Lord says
it, where the Lord says it and how
the Lord says it. The promise is

You don't have to be on a
candid camera to say "cheese"
and so broaden your smile. It's
also a smart thing to say when
yau want something interesting
for a simple menu, easy to pre-
pare, tasty and nutritious.
Cheese is made from milk,
skimmed milk or cream. Most
types are made from the curd,
but some are based on whey. The
process is one of enzyme or fer.
ment action; the ferments are
derived from various molds or
bacteria. The type of cheese is
determined by the mold or the
bacteria and by the process used.
A Concentrated Food
Cheese is a concentrated pro-
tein food, containing up to 36
percent by weight of protein,
mainly casein. Thus a three ounce
portion of cheese would supply
about one ounce of protein, or
about 40% of a day's requirement
for an adult male (154 pounds)
doing average work., The fat in
cheese varies from almost none
in uncreamed cottage cheese to
about 30 percent in the more 'fat'
Almost every nation has its
favorite cheeses, determined by
the kind of milk used, the en-
zyme, and the conditions of cur.
ing. Practically every variety of
foreign cheese is paralleled by
a similar type made in the United
States. Often the domestic is
indistinguishable from the im.
port. This is due to the immigra-
tion of expert cheese makers
from many nations, and the dup-
lication of aging conditions such
as constant-temperature caves,
where the same procedure can
be carried on as in the original

The time for readiness is now!
Such readiness should be a part
of our daily lives. We should make
regular checks on the condition
of our protection facilities, and
every family should carry out per-
iodic drills of procedures to follow
in case of enemy attack.
Unfortunately, some people tend
to take a defeatist attitude about
civil defense. From the time of the
War for Independence, many Amer-
icans have given their lives to ob-
tain and insure the freedom that
we enjoy today. Certainly all who
have made the supreme sacrifice
would be greatly disappointed in
those who express a "do nothing"
attitude about protecting them-
selves and their nation. This very
attitude has cost many other peo-
ple of the world their individual
and national liberty.
We live in a dangerous age, and
we must all rise to meet the chal-
lenge. Individually and collectively
we must say, and believe, and take
steps to insure that we will sur-
One of the keys to our survival
The Department of Defense, the
Atomic Energy Commission, the U.
S. Public Health Service and the
U. S. Department of Agriculture
all have information on what to ex-
pect during a nuclear attack, h
to survive and what to do after the
attack. Our governmental agencies,
national, state and local, are or-
ganized to meet such an emergen-
cy, but they need the help and co-
operation of every citizen.

Governor Burns Proclaims Sunday As
Safe Drve Day With State Jaycees
By WESLEY R. RAMSEY
With qualifying for county offices at an end and qualification
deadline for state offices only a day away, the .candidates are be-
ginning to stir about and make "political noises".
And that old master politician "Old Ben" Williams is gaining a
lot of free publicity by keeping everybody guessing for a week
if he will switch over and run for the Senate in place of his first
pronouncement of seeking a seat in the House of Representatives.
You can't buy that kind of attention, and I believe Ben knows it.
And the kids are getting into the act too.
We notice in The Tallahassee Democrat where the students at
Florida State University have voted hands down for Scott Kelly in
a recent straw vote conducted on the campus.
The students gave Kelly 1,140 votes; Robert King High 971 and
Governor Burns 311. Reckon the recent change in the trimester
system could have had anything to do with this?
The ladies are getting on the "campaign trail" too.
Mrs. Burns is starting off the season with a visit to Port St.
Joe Tuesday of next week for a dinner in her honor at the Cen-
tennial Building. She will visit'other towns in this area during her
It's getting so the women are more effective campaigners than
Mayor Robert King High made a little "political hay" in the
Panama City Herald this week getting a third of the front page with
his proposed route for I-10.
We can't see how the Miami Mayor hopes to get elected, how-
ever, with the power he says Ed Ball controls in the State of Flor-
ida. We don't think Mr. Ball cares very much for Mr. High and if
he is as all-powerful as High claims, the Mayor won't get enough
votes to say he's been in the race.
As a matter of fact, with such a "powerful" enemy as this run-
ning loose, we fail to see how Mr. High was even elected Mayor of

Hike In PO Rates
Effective March 26, 1966 accord-
ing to Postmaster Chauncey Costin,
special service fees will cost the
user a little more. The cost of re-
gistered, certified, insured and C.

fees will also increase.
When the new rates become ef-
fective the minimum charge on re-
gistered mail will be 75 cents on

ent charge. However, the change
here is that the 60 cent fee on val-
ues up to $10 has been eliminated.
All other values remain the same.
Certified mail will be increased
from the present 20 cent fee to 30
cents. The minimum liability to do-
mestic insured mail will be increas-
ed from $10 to $15, and the fee in-
creased from 10 cents to 20 cents
Higher liabilities will be increased
by 10 cents.
The insured coverage on C. O. D.
mail which is now 40 cents for in-
surance up to $5.00 will be elimin-
ated and the new rate of 60 cents
will cover insurance up to $10.

About Junk Yards
City Commissioner John Robert
Smith expressed his concern Tul-
day night, at the growing autom6-
bile grave yards inside the City
Limits of Port St. Joe, and ques-
tioned City Attorney Cecil G. Cos-
tin if the new City zoning ordin-
ance didn't prohibit such "eye-
sores" in the City.
Smith called special attention to
three areas in the City which has
a number of junked cars on the
premises, and wanted to know if
the City had the power to have
Attorney Costin told Smith that
all of the areas in questioned were
there prior to the ordinance, but
that in his opinion the City could
have them removed as a nuisance
to the City. He also pointed out
that the new City zoning ordinance
prohibits junk yards in the City
Limits unless by special permis-
sion of the Commission.
Chief H. W. Griffin told the
Board that the junk in two of the
yards had been sold and would be
removed soon. He also stated that
the third one was moving out o
the City in the near future.
Commissioner Smith then urged
the Board to keep a close watch
in the future and not allow the
lots in Port St. Joe to be cluttere#
up in an unsightly manner.
