Will Die of Cancer
Based on the latest figures.avail
able, did you know that in Port St
Joe, out of a population of aboul
5,000, this will happen in 1966:,
Seven persons will die of cancer
Fourteen new cases will be dis
Five of these 14 will be cured of
Also, that of these 5,000 per-
1,250, will eventually develop
cancer, and 750 of these will die, if
the present rate continues.
This is a sobering set of figures,
and brings home to us the great
need for increased emphasis on the
American Cancer Society's pro-
gram of education and research. At
the beginning of The American
Cancer Society's program of educa-
tion and research in 1937, your
chance of being cured after devel-
oping cancer was only one out of
five. Now, in 1966, it has been in-
creased to one in three. Through
early diagnosis and treatment,
this could be one out of two. Edu-
cation, therefore, to cancer's dan-
ger signs and to promote regular
check-ups, could be responsible for
saving two lives in Port St. Joe
this year, and of possibly saving
125 lives of the 5,000 people now
living in Port St. Joe.
This, then, shows us what edu-
cation alone might accomplish.
Now for some information on what

deaths from uterine cancer have
been cut 50%, principally through

Our "Money Green
Pine Tree Curtains"
If it wasn't so sad, it would be almost comical to read
the testimony of Miami's Mayor Robert King High and Ap-
alachicola's editor, J. A. Maloney before the Senate Bank-
ing Committee. The testimony is? being given in reference
to attempt to make the duPont interests give up their chain
Sof banks or to get rid of their non-banking interests which
would include the St.. Joe Paper Company, the AN Rail-
road,' the St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company
and various other enterprises.
It is easy to see by the testimony offered that Mayor
High or Editor Maloney are not familiar with history df
the Frontier Coast before the duPont's came to this area,
or that they haven't examined very closely what this com-
ing has meant to this section of Florida.
PINE TREE CURTAIN
Much mention in both testimonies is made to "Ed Ball's
Pine Tree Curtain". If the two men in question will take
a close look, they will see that this curtain is green .. .
money green. And a closer look will reveal this same green
spread about everywhere in a 100 mile radius in cash reg-
isters, nice homes, automobiles, boats, motors, trailers .
and food in the mouth. It is.interesting to note that coun-
ties in w which the St. Joe Paper Company operates can
qualify for almost no money in their school systems due to
the prevalence of povertyin the county. As a "for instance"
Jacksdn County qualified for 20 times the money that Gulf
County did. (There's that green-tinted pine tree curtain
Editor Maloney urged the break-up of the duPont em-
pire to "open this area rich in natural resources to devel-
Look as hard as we might, we can find no natural re-
sources from which to manufacture goods with except the
pine tree and the sea. Remove the pine tree and the sea
from our vicinity and you have sand and sand and
Prior to the coming of the duPont's to this area, the
people lived off the naval stores business, the lumbering
business and some fishing.
But the naval stores operation was on the way out.
It was becoming too expensive to produce naval stores in
the methods that were being used.' Synthetics were also be-
ginning to take over. The same story holds true for the
lumbering industry. The big saw-mill which employed hun-
,dreds of people was beginning to fade from tthe scene. The
only large mill left now in this area is in-Blountstown. The
large mill at Port St. Joe continued to operate, largely be-
cause of demands brought about for lumber because of the
-war. Lumbering men will tell you that the large saw-mill
is a thing of the past in this area. Too expensive to get
-saw logs and operate.'
So, without "Ed Ball's Pine Tree Curtain" that would
leave a lot of nice-to-look-at pine trees and some commer-
cial fishing for our economy wouldn't it? What kind of
a future is that?
Some mention was made of the duPont's "sitting" on
all of the beach front property (presumably in Franklin
County). Of course this means, we imagine, that the
beach property is desired for development for tourists.
This makes good thinking, since everybody knows it is prac-
tically painless to extract the long green from tourists.
But we have one little drawback.
Beaches.. or at least the attractive white sand bea-
ches end at Port St. Joe in the Cape San Blas area,
and become mud flats until the shore lie gets down about
Cross City. This can't be helped. The presence of so many
rivers arid creeks pouring into the Gulf at this point make
the presence of mud flats something that we will have to
live with, whether we like it or not.
Editor Maloney said in his testimony that this area
cannot prosper behind "Ball's Pine Tree Curtain".
This area has prospered behind "Ed Ball's Money-
rGreen Pine Tree Curtain". It is continuing to prosper. Not
just Port St. Joe, but the entire area for at least 50 miles
And we firmly believe that the progress is coming about
through the wedded operation of banks and industry.
There are many individuals in Gulf County, Calhoun Coun-
ty and Franklin County who are in business for themselves
because of this operation. Men who have gone into the
pulpwood business with equipment purchased through bank
loais ... and many of them from the Port St. Joe bank
because the operators couldn't get loans elsewhere. And
the loans are made at fair interest rates. There is no goug-
ing. There is no "serfdom".
For the first time since this area was founded in the
1830's, people along the Frontier Coast have been able to
make a decent living, because of "Ed Ball's Money-Green
Pine Tree Curtain". History tells us about that. Port St.
Joseph tried to survive, but couldn't because of economic
factors. With the coming of the railroad and the demise
of the steamboat, Apalachicola began to go backward.
Other settlements along the coast in this area sprang up
but couldn't last long, because the people couldn't make a
living. Of course, a few pioneers stuck it out and scraped
a living out of some lumbering, some naval stores. But
by and large the people were starving to death on our "re-
It must be remembered that the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad was bankrupt when the duPont's came here. The
employees of the road, which served the area Mr. Maloney
and Mayor High refers too, were bankrupt also. The tele-
phone company was bankrupt. Employees of both concerns
hadn't been paid in weeks. Does this sound like the "re-
sources" of the area were providing prosperity in other
References have been made in testimony before the
Banking Committee that workers in the area are held in
virtual serfdom by the pine tree economy.
Then why is it, that during 30 years of operation the
St. Joe Paper Company has been shut down less than two
weeks by labor troubles? Why is that there have been no
labor troubles at all during the past 30 years in the ranks
of Apalachicola Northern Railroad employees? Or St. Jo-
seph Telephone and Telegraph? Or Florida National Bank?
Or St. Joe Land and Development Company? Or St. Joe
Paper Company Woodlands Division? Or why is it that
the company allows 40% of its employees to commute to
and from work to Apalachicola, Wewahitchka, Blountstown,
Altha, Bristol, Panama'City? Do these people drive this
distance every day because they are in serfdom? No, it's
because they make a decent living from the duPont inter-
Let's look a little bit at the "fringe benefits". It is
well known in this area that any child who wishes to go to
college can get financial aid from the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany .. and this isn't a loan, either ... it's a gift. With-
out even. doing any research I can name at least 20 families
who have had serious illness among,their members, who
have had first class treatment by the best specialists avail-
able, at the expense of the St. Joe Paper Company. Every
worthwhile youth, civic or charitable endeavor receives the
financial and moral support of the St. Joe Paper Company.
Of course these things are not publicized with head-
lines. Many, many people do not even realize these things
are being done, or by whom. They prefer to practice a quiet
philantrophy. Like the Bible defines for proper charity,
they do not let the right hand know what the left hand is
STIFLING THE ECONOMY?
References were also made to the duPonts sitting on
their land and refusing to give up any for industrial'devel-
Now among those seeking such help for financially
incompetent industrial promise, we will have to agree with
Mr. Maloney and Mr. High. No industry is allowed to sit
down on duPont property unless it is capable of paying its
We will admit that several proposed industrial endea-
vors have been denied land on which to locate. But these
developments in every case have been the type that seeks
local capital, or gifts of local land, or gifts of a local build-
ing .. so that a Government loan can be secured for the
remainder of the capital. In other words, the so-called
industries would locate here if local interests would pro-
vide them land, buildings and the aid in securing Govern-
rhent money AT NO COSTS TO THE INDUSTRY. Any-
body could start an industry under these conditions. But
how long would they operate? The St. Joe Paper Company
investigates fully every company requesting land on which
to locate a factory. If they are financially sound and will
help, rather than hurt the area, they get what they need.
If they are not sound, they are denied their request. It's
as simple as that.
As a result of this close screening, this area has re-
ceived several prosperous industries that have provided
steady, good-paying employment for many citizens who
need have no fear of their company going out of business.
Apalachicola's seafood canning plant and its history
should be example enough of what can happen without
this type of screening.
Frankly, we are enjoying this "Money Green Pine Tree
Curtain". It has allowed us to raise a large family in com-
parative comfort. Of course we have had to work at it,
and this is possibly the basis of the complaint against the
'Curtain". People are getting (or trying to get) away from
working for a living.
Frankly, we enjoy making a good living, even though
we do have to work for it. Making a good living is some-
thing we have never been able to do until we came here.
And we do not take kindly to anybody who tries to tear
down our "Money Green Pine Tree Curtain".

"Thus Saith The Lord"
By REV. BILL GRAHAM
THE REDEEMING CHRIST
When a person believes in his
heart that Christ died for his sins
and rose again, that person is then
a saved person, a Christian, and
often referred to as a redeemed.
There are three Greek words in
the Bible, which are translated re-
To fully understand the redemp-
tive work of Christ we will exam-
ine a portion of Scripture with
each of these words. In so doing
our understanding of this truth
will become even more precious.
1. Revelation 5:9; "And they
sung a new song, saying, Thou
are worthy to take the book, and
to open the seals thereof: for thou
was slain, and has redeemed us to
God by Thy blood out of every kin-
dred, and tongue, and people and
nation". In this passage the word
"redeemed" is the Greek work
"Agorazo", which means "to buy";
that is ,when Christ shed His blood
on Calvary His blood was the pur-
chase price for the sinner. When
the sinner receives Christ as his
Saviour the payment is applied to
him and the sinner is purchased
out of the slave market of sin and
2. Galatians 3:13; "Christ hath
redeemed us from the curse of
the law, being made a curse for
us: for it is written, cursed is every
one that hangeth on a tree." In
this scripture the word "redeemed"
is the Greek word "Exagorago"
which means to buy out and re-
move from sale. Here we have the
redemptive work of Christ set
forth that the believer, at the mo-
ment of saving faith, is purchased
out of -condemnation and removed
from sale never again to be sold
back into .condemnation.
3. I Peter 1:18; "Forasmuch as
ye know that ye were not redeem-
ed with corruptible things, as sil-
ver and gold, from your vain con-
versation received by tradition
from your fathers; but with the
precious blood of Christ, as of a
lamb without blemish and without
spot". The word "redeemed" in
this. verse is the Greek word
"Lutroo" this' word means to re-
lease on receipt of payment. This
means that when a person believes
in Christ he is purchased out of
condemnation and set free. "If

For every 30 new students in
school, a teacher must be added to
take care of this increased enrol-
lment. But Florida already is faced
with trying to find 6,000 new teach-
ers annually just to take care of
the increasing number of pupils
and to replace teachers lost
through resignation and retire-
ment, said Henderson.
An FEA study shows that Florida
colleges and universities graduate
almost 2,000 certified teachers each
year, but only about 1,000 of these
accept teaching positions in Flori-
This means that approximately
5,000 new teachers must be recruit-

The Easter vigil, at Saint Jos-

at 11:30 p.m. on Holy Saturday,
April 9. The Florida State Univer-
sity School of Music Choir has
again graciously accepted an invi-

solemn occasion. It is a beautiful
service, with beautiful music. Fa-
ther Paul Hogarty and all the
members of Saint Joseph's Church
hope everyone will join them in
this Easter vigil service.

resplendent as the dawning sun,
thereby conquering forever the

in mind we assist at the blessing
of the new fire, the blessing and
lighting of the Easter candle, the
carrying and distribution of this
burning candle through the Church
and the chanting of the Easter
song. The first of these four rites
represents Christ's resurrection;
the second the glory and splendor
of His risen presence among us;
the third our joyful sharing in His

glorious resurrection. With grati- heartfelt gratitude for such great

Florida Has Many
Eligible for Gi Bill
St. Petersburg, Fla. M. T., Dix-
on, of the Fla. Dept. of Veterans
Affairs, announced there has been
prepared a study showing the
home-state residence of 4,065,000
veterans eligible for benefits un-

California leads the nation in
men and women who have seen ser-
vice since Jan. 31, 1965, and are
discharged or separated. Californ-
ia's total was estimated at 349,000;
Alaska, the largest state, has the
fewest -' 4,000. Florida is second in
the nation and first in the south-
eastern states with the number of
veterans of post Korean service.
Florida has 102,000 who are poten-
tially eligible for all of the bene-
fits of the New GI Bill.
Dixon estimated that the poten-
tial economic boast to Florida of
Federal funds resulting from these
veterans taking advantage of these
benefits would amount of $8,200,
The state residency estimates are
based on a sampling of Department

Instant Answers From
Four Million Questions
In mid-1964, the IBM Corporation
approached Glidden's 0 r g a n ic
Chemicals Division with a theore-
tical presentation of installing "in-
stant analysis" on Glidden's tall oil
plant in Port St. Joe. IBM showed
that computers had been installed
on production facilities which op-
erated in "block" procedure, and
this opened the possibility and
feasibility of a similar installation
on Glidden's continuous flow tall
oil production facilities. A Glidden
team was appointed to study this
presentation. The team quickly
came to a conclusion that such an
installation's advantages presented
not the question of whether but ra-
ther how to put a computer on the
plant (they realized that it would
increase pant efficiency and yields
and thus, profits). The team staff
still working with this program to-
day are Wilmer Stoufer, manager-
of production, Ronnie Wingate and
Henry Wengrow of the O.CiD. sys-
tems department and Larry Rojab
of the IBM Corporation.
Connecting an analyzing compu-
ter to OCD's tall- oil plant was
deemed feasible because (1) the
plant is continuous flow-a type of
operation, calling for constant
"stream". control; (2) the Port St.
Joe operation is -a compact and sin-
gular, "unit" function (unlike the
Jacksonville plant's spread-out and
diverse batch-step functions.) Thus
in theory and practicality, compu-
ter analysis "control" 'of the tall
oil plant was reasonable, and de-
velopment of the project began in
late 1964. Innovations were rapid,
and the eventual installation result-
ed in several "firsts". The system
is a pioneer for Glidden, in that it
is the first digital computer instal-

determining the key points for
sampling these columns was of
first importance. Once sample
points were determined, the plant
had to be'ishut down to install the
proper equipment. In all, over one
hundred sample points test in the
fractionating area various tempera-
tures, -flow rates and pressures.
Transfer of information from Port
St. Joe on the Gulf of Mexico to
Jacksonville on the Atlantic Ocean,
and return, is accomplished by
means of a circuit rented from
Western Union. Traveling partially
on wire and mostly by radio micro-
wave, the 300 mile long circuit is
kept constantly humming in a
led on a plant process throughout Almost all of the signals in the

The CPU is constantly under the
control of an executive program in
O.C.D.'s Jacksonville' administra-
tion building. This programming of
other jobs (such as Division pay-
rolls and sales analysis, Jackson-
ille. plant products analysis, and ac-
counting work) is run in conjunc-
tion with the Port St. Joe tall oil
production analysis. Every forty
seconds, the job being handled by
CPU is interrupted, and a signal
is sent to the tall oil plant in Port
St. Joe stating "gather flow and
temperature data, or analysis data".
The CPU then continues its jobs
while the data is accumulated. In-
struments in the tall oil plant ga-
ther the particular data called for
by the CPU in about ten seconds,
and then flash the digital informa-
tion back. As this data comes in to
the computer, the CPU shifts the
job it is doing to file discs, and
carries out 'a generalized "check"
on the incoming material to see
that all the figures are within pre-
set limits; if-they are not, CPU
returns a signal which types out
in Port St. Joe, "Figure number
- .--- is out of limits-recheck!"
If all figures are within limits, the
CPU passes the incoming material
into the memory units. This total
phase takes four, seconds, after
which CPU picks up the job it
was working on from the file discs
and resumes its work on that job.
The main computer is occupied
about 25% of the time with record-
ing tall oil plant information, while
the other 75% of the time it is
working on other jobs-thus the

phase is entered into by CPU. This
phase takes the computer several
as four million digits of data on the
tall oil plant, stored in th1 memory
units. The total hourly analysis
passes the stored data first through
a mechanical check, and then thru
a corrective action check. The me-
chanical check passes all the data
through an analysis of reasonabili-
ty. In effect the CPU asks itself,
"Is this mechanically acceptable?"
The following corrective action
check, based on a pre-established
range of limits, calculates maxi-
mum efficiency operation, resulting a
in suggestions which are signaled 3
