Port St. Joe's business men had a "sneak
at the new Florida First National Bank Saturday morning. And
the grand tour of the new building only serves to enlarge the splen-
dor that is evident in the business.portion of the bank which you
enter to make your deposit, your borrow or to cash a check.
There's one thing the new bank has that is the envy of every
business man in town and that is plenty of room.
We suspect that Saturday's grand tour was just a researsal for
the public viewing which has been scheduled for Saturday and
Sunday, May 28 and 29. The tour was scheduled for this week
end but has been set back a week.
Between now and then, would you please go by the bank and
make a deposit? The poor people must have gone overboard on
construction of the building and must be suffering the shorts
Snow. We make this statement as the result of appearances at the
bank Saturday. Why, they are cutting corners so close that they
have even pressed into service, the vice-president of the St. Joe
Paper Company, Tom Coldewey, as elevator operator.
That's as bad as me having to sweep out The Star office every
once in a while because I can't afford a janitor.
And before you say it The Star does get swept out occa-
Officials at the bank let us go back in the cage where all the
money is kept, but they had it all under lock and key (suspicious
souls that they are). As a matter of fact, we didn't see but about
$10.00 in actual cash in the entire bank. It was all locked in metal
cabinets. Quite a let-down from TV and the movies, where the
bad men break into the bank and see cash lying upon shelves by
the bushel baskets full.
The new bank is truly a credit to. the community or to
any community twice the size of Port St. Joe. As a matter of fact
we would say that the bank is tacit faith (or knowledge) that Port
St. Joe will not always stay the size it is now!
And lest you get the mistaken idea from these ramblings that
the bank is broke don't you believe it!
We understand that George Tapper has purchased a riding lawn
mower and that he, personally, is going to cut the grass on his,
"Ponderosa" down on Constitution Drive. We' have it on reliable
source that it will cost you 50c to come by and watch George do
the honors. All proceeds will go to defray the cost of the lawn
mower and its operation expense.
We would like to commend Mayor Robert King High for sending
Adam Clayton Powell back to Washington when he came to Florida
to "Help High" last week. Now if High will just send Bobby Ken-
nedy's men back where they came from, we will make this a do-it-
yoirself all-Florida campaign.

County Offers To

Boat Basin Plans
Tuesday-night, the City Commis-

Gulf County Commission to try to
work out a plan for construction
of a public boat basin and launch-
ing site in the Port St. Joe area.
Presently, Port St. Joe has two
Sboat basins at their disposal, but
they are on leased property and
are subject to sale or use by the
owners. One basin is at the foot
of Fifth Street in St. Joseph Bay.
The other basin is at Highland
View on the Gulf County Canal.
For several months, the city has
been talking of purchasing water-
front property, both desirable and
accessible for a public boat ramp
and basin. Several pieces of pro-
perty have. been discussed, but

The City was offered a plot of

City is reluctant to take this pro-
perty due to the fact that it has
thousands of yards of sand' dredged
out of the Canal, which lies on the
property in question. It is the City's
thinking that it would cost a great
deal to remove the dirt, in addi-
tion to having to dig out a basin
The County Board members told
the City Commission that- they
would begin drawing up next year's
budget in a couple of months, and
if the City could locate property
and ascertain a cost, the County
would include in its budget money

WATER SKI SAFETY
The safety of any water skier is dependent to a great extent on the
good sense of the tow boat driver. If your driver is careless or reck-
less, change his ways or change drivers. Here are a few command-
ments of safe water skiing from the Mercury outboard people:
a) insist that there be an observer in the boat at all times; b) always
wear a life saving device; c) make sure your foot binders fit properly
and all ski equipment is free of protruding sharp screws, rough edges
etc.; d) ski lines and handles should be free of complicated hooks,
eyes and other devices as well as unnecessary loops that might en-
tangle, catch or cut a skier; e) try to fall backward when you feel
you're about to take spill; f) don't ski at night or in waters which
are unfamiliar to you.

THANK YOU All of you who supported
me so heartily in the first primary
S- I ALSO WANT TO THANK and rec-
ognize my opponents for the gentlemanly
S way in which they conducted their cam-
paigns. At the same time, I invite the
supporters of the losing candidate to
join with me in the second primary.
SI WANT TO TAKE this opportunity
to express my sincere interest in the
boys and girls of Gulf County-and the
growth and development of the total
school program in Gulf County.
I CONSIDER THE tremendous
change taking place in education today
a real challenge. I know that quality education is a must in
this Space Age, and I pledge to you that I will give the time, the
study, and the effort that is required to perform the duties of a
school board member in an outstanding manner.
I CAN ONLY MAKE one promise in this campaign, and that
is to assure you that Gene Raffield will do his very best to pro-
vide the leadership required to have a school program that will
meet every need of our boys and girls.-
MY WIFE AND I feel that we are fortunate to have received
our education entirely in th Gulf County schools. Since we will
have children in school for the next several years, we will have
a personal interest in the education of all children.
I HAVE BEEN MANAGER of Raffield's Fisheries for the
past five years, and I feel that my business experience would be
an asset in facing the problems now confronting the school
system. I will be available at any time to discuss and to carry
on the schools' business.
A VOTE FOR Gene Raffield on May 24 will be a vote for
as good an education system as Gulf County can afford.

F"lrid3 Edui:3ion Ac sociat3h n Ccnvenhon, Miami Beach
ROBERT KING HIGH WANTS A
SEVERANCE TAX ON PHOSPHA TE AND MINERALS!
This important new money will be used for education and will,
therefore, provide property owners relief from property taxes.
Mining of phosphates, stone, sand, etc., takes away our natural
resources.. .leaving only ugly, scared earth. Mining of minerals
means a pei manent loss of Florida's natural wealth.
ROBERT KING HIGH DOES NOT WANT
A SEVERANCE TAX ON TIMBER
OR TIMBERLAND PRODUCTS!
Through intelligent reforestation programs, timberland owners
improve upon nature and make timberlands more productive.
The encouragement and development of these programs aie very vital
to the growth of Florida.

Florida Has Greatest
JACKSONVILLE Florida en-
joyed its greatest industrial gains
in history during February and
March, Governor Haydon Burns re-
vealed this week. .
Pointing out this is further proof
that his campaign title, "Florida's
Greatest Salesman" is well-earned,
Governor Burns said the state had
acquired 79 new manufacturing
plants and major expansions during
the two months.
The March total was 38 new
plants or major expansions provid-
ing more than 3600 new jobs for
Floridians. The February box score
reveals 41 new firms.
"In March, the investment sur-
passed $136 million for only nine
of the 38 installations-another all
-time high for a single month,"
Governor Burns said.

Doctor Epperson also pointed out
that water safety is not limited to
public bathing and recreational fa-
cilities. The large numbers of
home swimming pools and portable
pools for children mean added re-
sponsibility for home owners and
parents to practice water safety on
their own premises. "Never allow-
ing children to play in or near
water unless supervised by an adult
and knowing the swimming cap-
abilities of guests before they use
the home pool, are two basic pre-
cautions for water safety in the
home," the Doctor stated.
Accidental drownings are not al-
ways the result of sport or play, urging everyone to be careful when
Doctor Epperson added. There are using public and private recrea-

Special K Bars
S "'4 -
Quick and easy. This seems to be the password for today's fast-paced
,way of living. Our cupboards are filled with convenience foods, both
.packaged and canned. Our freezers bulge with the foods we store there.
But it's still nice to have something "homemade." Special K Bars use
three of the convenience products we all keep on the shelf chocolate
morsels, butterscotch morsels, Kellogg's Special K. They are rather like
a cooky, yet unbaked. Mothers especially like them because, made in
minutes, they are indeed quick and easy. Try some when you long for
something homemade. Today, perhaps..
SPECIAL K BARS
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup (6-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups KELLOGG: TE.EC.::L K
1 cup (6-oz. pkg.) butterscotch
Combine sugar and syrup in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over moderate
heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils. Remove from heat. Stir
in peanut butter; mix well. Add Special K; stir until well-blended.
Press mixture into buttered 13 x 9-inch pan.
Melt chocolate and butterscotch pieces together over hot but not
,boiling water, stirring until well-blended. Remove from heat; spread
evenly over Special K mixture. Cool until firm. Cut into bars.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida
To The Voters of Gulf County:
I would, like to take this opportunity to thank the peo-
ple of Gulf County for their cooperation during my present term
Sof service as your member of the Board of Public Instruction of
District Number Three. I am very grateful for the splendid vote
you gave me in the democratic primary May 3rd. It was a fine
gesture on your part, since there was no coercion or pressure
brought to bear on my part to try to persuade you in any way to
g vote contrary to your convictions.
I lave asked you on a number of occasions for your vote
and support. I appreciate your response. Be that as it may, I
would still like for you to go to the polls on May 24th and exer-
cise your freedom of choice. This is one of the greatest freedoms
we still possess.
I ask you now to consider, if you will, some of the pro-
gressive steps thatthe present Board has made in education in
Gulf County. We have made plans to construct new school fa-
cilities in Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka and Highland View to pro-
vide new facilities for our school children in lieu of the inade-
quate facilities now existing. We have made a careful study of
the classroom needs with the assistance of the State Board of
Education specialists. Our program will require an expenditure
of over Two Million Dollars, to be repaid from the portion of
the race track funds allocated to the school board, and not from
property taxes. I have spent many hours in meetings with our
administration officials and personnel of the State Board of Edu-
cation, assisting in this program. All of this information can be
found on file in the office of the Superintendent of Public In-
struction at the Court House in Wewahitchka.
We are now required to change our procedures in ad-
-ministration and instruction in order to comply with federal laws
applicable to our school system. We are trying to face the prob-
S lems presented by the requirements of the federal laws in a
sensible and practical way so that quality education can be given
to our children in Gulf County.
We are living in the space' age, and, therefore, must
meet the problems existing in this age. I believe I can be of ser-
vice in coping with these problems, and especially with our con-
struction program, where we are forced to plan ahead for the
next twenty or thirty years. My training has been in construc-
tion, and I am familiar with blueprints and specifications which
are so important in connection with this construction program.
I would like very much to continue to help execute the
plans which we as a Board have been working on with other in-
terested citizens since early in 1964. I want to let you know that
I dedicate myself to the task that is ours as members of this im-
portant board. We must have members of the Board of Educa-
tion that are thoroughly accustomed to making tough decisions;
loyal to the democratic process; able to speak effectively in pub-
lic and argue in private. He must be able to weather criticism,
without the benefit of a weather report. Also, we must maintain
firm convictions and eagerly share the blame or praise for all of
the decisions made by the board.
In conclusion, I would like to state that I would like
to see that the ultimate responsibility for the conduct of Ameri-
can education rests where it always has centered-in our states
and localities and in our public and private institutions of higher
I hope the above remarks will help you make the best
decision for the sake of the children of Gulf County so they can
get the best possible education. I am proud of the progress we
have made. It has been accomplished through the combined
efforts of the administrator, instructors and parents. I have the
utmost confidence in the' people of this county. I want you to
know I will not betray your confidence in me.

BOOK OF PINE NEEDLE CRAFT
by Adalaide Loofborough
Since primitive man, people have
had to use their intelligence and
ingenuity to train their hands to
work for them. We are still learn-
ing ways to use our hands and with
delightful results. Pine needle craft
is a skill learned from the Indians.
This book teaches how to make
many objects in this medium:
bowls, trays, purses, hats, baskets
among others; also what tools are
necessary for this craft. For our
section with our beautiful pine
trees, pine needle craft would
prove a rewarding pastime.

May Is Senior
Each year May is observed as
Senior Citizens Month throughout
the United States. Much is being
done in local communities in ob-
servation of this month. Recently
I learned of a local church esta-
blishing a senior citizens fellow-
ship group, and the minister of this
church extended a special invita-
tion to all people age 50 and over
to take an active part in this group.
The several Senior Citizens or Gold
en Agers throughout our district
area keep their doors open at all
times to senior citizens, and these
clubs conduct many interesting pro-
jects or meetings.
May 1966 is especially import-
ant to senior citizens age 65 and
over. Nearly all of these senior cit-
izens have enrolled in medicare,
and most of them have received
their Medical identification card.
The rest of the Medicare identifi-
cation cards will be mailed as soon
as possible. During the month of
June all individuals enrolled for
Medicare will receive a special
'Medicare Handbook'. Medicare be-
gins July 1, 1966. Anyone who is
age 65 now must enroll before May
31, 1966 if they want the part of
Medicare that pays the doctor bills.
May is also national Radio
Month. Radio station personal
along with the personnel of all in-
formational media are, due special
tribute for the manner in which
they keep us informed of current
events. During the past six months
all informational m e di a, r a d i o,
newspapers, TV, performed a tre-
mendous task in helping our senior
citizens understand Medicare.
Their continued help is vita 11ly
needed if everyone is to realize the
full benefits of the retirement, sur-
vivor, and disability protection pro-
vided under social security.

zens and thank the many people

man today is that there is nothing
wrong in pre-marital relations. In
fact, it is even being taught that
such a procedure is wise, especial-
ly since we now have pills to avoid
Dear Christian, such teaching is
anti-God and pro-Satanic. Christian,
do not cheat yourself out of God's
best by falling for such devilish
foolishness as this. God is all see-
ing and all knowing; no one can
hide an illicit affair from God.
Keep your emotions and desires
under spiritual discipline and wait
until God gives you a mate. Wait
until you have carried out God's
commandments before you enter
into such a state of living.
Allow me to offer a four point
program for choosing a mate. 1.
Prayerfully seek God's choice for
you. 2. Prayerfully consider the
time of marriage that God has set.
3. According to God's word (Ro-
rnans 13:1-5) we are told to obey
the powers in authority over us;
therefore, a marriage ceremony is
necessary because it is required
by law and it is a public testimony
of your union. 4. Then enter into
your marriage with the knowledge
that the Lord has every right to
direct every area of your lives.
Give Him that right and enjoy the
blessedness of a God-given union.
This kind of marriage is worth
waiting for, it is worth doing God's
way and His time. In I Corinthians
6:15, 16 we read: "Know ye not
that your bodies are members of
Christ? Shall I then take the mem-
bers of Christ, and make them the
members of an harlot? God forbid.
What? Know ye not that he which
is joined to an harlot is one body?
For two, saith He, hall be one
Read carefully dear Christian,
your whole future is at stake. A
harlot is a woman who offers her-
self in an illicit affair, her husband
