Board Approves New
Budget: Sets Mill Rate
The City Commission met Tues -
day night in special session to
adopt a new budget and set the T More Qualify
village rate for the'1967 fiscal
year.In Cit Elections
Commissioner Bob Fox moved
that the tentative budget be adopt-
ed. Commissioner I. C. Nedley sec-
onded the motion and all of the
Board members voted in favor.
Commissioner Nedley moved
that a millage rate of 12.2 be set
which was seconded by Commis-
sioner Fox. This motion also re-
'ceived unanimous approval.
The budget reflects an increase
of $77,717.70 over last year's fi-
nancial planning. The 12.2 mills
tax is expected to bring in $166,-
235.00 with the remainder of the
$459,237.70 budget to be financed
by special taxes such as admission
taxes, utility taxes, licenses, etc.,
state tax incomes such as cigarette
taxes, fines, road and bridge re-
ceipts, water and sewer services
and a number of smaller items.
The largest increase in income
will come from increased property
taxes caused by more taxable pro-
perty going on the rolls by way of
property improvements. A $3 mil-
lion increase in property values
will bring in an additional $42,000.
The second highest increase comes
from the road and bridge fund tax
collections in Port St. Joe by Gulf
County. Thfs will amount to ap-
proximately $40,000 over last year's
City Clerk C. W. Brock noted
that the City is ending its fiscal
year in excellent financial con-
dition, with all bills paid and
nearly $40,000.00 cash to carry over
into the new budget.

Tourist Catches Big Shark
In last week's paper, we carried a picture of three local boys
who went shark fishing and came home with a load of mackerel.
In this week's issue, we are showing, above, the picture of Bruce E.
Moreland of Greensboro, N. C., who went out snapper fishing with
George Holland on the Jep II Saturday and caught the 350 pound
shark pictured laying on the floor. The shark bit the grouper Mr.
'Moreland is holding in his hand as it was being reeled in. The shark,
in turn, was pushed in the canal at Raffield's Fisheries and the
catfish proceeded to bite him or rather "her". The shark had
baby sharks inside its stomach, ready to hatch or laid what-

Tapper Speaks to
Rotary On Constitution
Senator George Tapper spoke to
the Rotary Club Thursday com-
menting on the new, proposed con-
stitution for the State of Florida.
Tapper qualified all of his re-
marks on the document at the be-
ginning of his address by saying he
didn't think the new constitution
as now written would be approved.
He said that the new constitution
,draft protects the rights of indi-
viduals; it maintains the right to
work; sets up annual Legislative
sessions; calls for 15 day sessions
of the Legislature every 10 years,
and stipulates that if apportion-
ment isn't accomplished in the 15
days, the State Supreme Court will
do the job; leaves homestead ex-
emption as it is, but gives indi-
vidual counties the local option to
change the exemption for educa-
tional purposes; provides for school
district elections every two years to
decide on extra millage, up to 10
mills and leaves the distribution of
race track and secondary road fund
money as they are now distributed.
Tapper noted that the larger
counties are opposing the stipula-
tion of the location of the capital
in the new document. They want
the capital referred to as "Capital"
and not by location.
Guest of the club was Gene Aus-
tin of Apalachicola.

Gulf Students Get Cash
Refund On GCJC Tuition
Approximately 40 Gulf County
students who enrolled at Gulf
Coast Junior College during the
early registration period in July
for classes this fall are enjoying
a unique experience.
They dre getting refunds.
According to Aubrey Jefferies,
dean of administrative services, al-
most $1,000 has been refunded
those Gulf County students who
enrolled before their home county
became a participating county in
the operation and support of Gulf
Coast Junior College.
The difference in tuition fee for
students from participating count-
ies and non-participating counties
is $25.00 when the student is carry-
ing a full load. It ranges from $2.00
to $6.00 for part-time students.
The refunds were made only to
those Gulf County students who
enrolled gj Gulf Coast during its
one-month early registration per-
iod in July. Gulf County students
enrolling during the regular regis-
tration period this week will pay
county tuition fee of $75.00 for a
full-time student and $8.00 per
hour for a part-time student.

Our Changing Times
We were reading Ralph McGill's column in the Atlanta
Journal and Constitution Sunday. Evidently his mother
had just recently died after having lived for 89 years. Mr.
McGill was doing as so many other people do when they
begin to remember things. He was recalling the changes
in our world since his mother was born not many years
after the Civil War.
He noted that his mother had seen the invention of the
electric light, the telephone, the airplane, the automobile
and many other wonderful modern conveniences that we
take for granted in our everyday life we even consider
them necessities now, they have become so much a part of
our lives. An example of our dependence upon our modern
conveniences was recently brought home anew to us with
the air line strike, which crippled travel over the nation and
slowed business to a crawl in some instances..
It's true, our blessings are many now, with the multi-
tude of conveniences that make our life easier and, we
But there are two other changes in our everyday life
that not many people bother to think about. .. changes
that we have also come to take for granted.
.One of these changes, we do not think is for the good.
Monday night, while watching the last half of the Kraft
Summer Theatre, star John Davidson was asking people
when and where they courted one another. One young cou-
ple had begun courting back in 1913 and told Davidson that
they did their courting in the park. Young John was
flabbergasted that they could court in the park. Today,
in many areas of our country, certainly in most cities large
enough to have parks, the parks which were created for
beauty, at night become the scenes of muggings, attacks,
murders. Certainly no fit place in which to court one's in-
We are not so proud of this change in recent years.
But another recent change in our lives has come about
through the discovery of antibiotics.
These life-saving drugs came into being in the early
1940's during the life-time of most of our readers.
We remember that we received the first sulfa drugs to
come to Port St. Joe. And we are not an old man yet.
In conversation with the late Dr. A. L. Ward, we asked
him what people used to heal infection before the 40's'and
the discovery of sulfas, pinicillin and the other wonder
drugs. He replied, "iodine, alcohol and hope ... mostly
A little thing, this discovery, you might think. But
when you think of the countless lives and suffering these
drugs have saved, we have to consider them, truly, one of
the better miracles of our age.
LBJ's Programs Have Hidden Price Tags
President Lyndon Johnson will receive an honorary
doctor of civil laws degree from a New England university
today. The awarding of the unearned degree is just one of
several events scheduled to take place on a week end tour
of the northeastern states.
There is nothing unusual in the award of an honorary
or unearned degree to the President of the United States;
many universities have done so in the past and will do so
"Thus Saith The Lord"
by Rev. Bill Graham
In this issue we shall share to-
gether the ministry of the Holy
Spirit in the New Testament.
We read in the Scriptures that,
after the Lord Jesus rose from the
dead and ascended into Heaven,
He sent the Holy Spirit into the
world on a new and unique minis-
try. There are many and varied in-
correct teachings on the Holy Spirit
in our day, much of which is due
to. the failure of some folks to dis-
tinquish between the ministry of
the Holy Spirit before Pentecost
(Old Testament and Gospels) and
after Pentecost (Acts and Epistles).
We shall approach our study in
three parts: 1. The Holy Spirit's
ministry to the world. 2. The Holy
Spirit's ministry in salvation. 3.
The Holy Spirit's ministry in the
Believer. Our study will be con-
fined to the New Testament.

try to the world is set forth in

however, symbolic of the whole philosophy of the Johnson
When an educational institution presents an honorary
degree, the act is intended to be an expression of admir'
tion and representative of a desire to bind the recipient
to the institution. The person receiving such a degree
should feel honored, but he ought not fail to remember
that the process carries benefits two ways.
One seldom hears of an institution granting an honor-
ary degree to an unknown individual who may have merit,
integrity and potential. Usually recipients of honorary
degrees are persons of wealth, possessors of power, such
as a governmental figure, or they are people who can
place the institution awarding the degree before the eyes
of the public.
It would not be a cynical statement to say that any
institution that grants an honorary degree certainly ex-
pects to recover some benefit from the act.
The Johnson Administration has conducted its business
with the same philosophy in mind. Careful study of the
actions of Administration officers shows that everything
which has been done in the past has been based on the idea
that a reward would be returned to the persons in power.
A tax cut was shoved through just before an important
election and removed shortly afterwards. Social Security
benefits and Medicare programs were enacted or expanded
with great publicity, but the Administration refrained from
pointing out that every individual would probably pay in
more money to that fund than he could ever expect to get
back in return.
Unearned degrees have hidden price tags and so do
the programs of the current Administration.
School Days Are Back
All good things come to an end-at least temporarily.
And so it is, as the long school summer holiday draws to
a close. Very shortly, millions of youngsters will be shoul-
dering their school books once again. Other millions will
see the inside of a schoolroom for the first time when
school opens on August 29.
While it is true that an educated man does not get all
his education in the classroom, the fact remains that for-
mal education is the foundation and best hope of civiliza-
tion. Education is the seed bed of tolerance and under-
standing. It is the source of progress in every field of
Tomorrow's astronauts, engineers, scientists, techni-
cians, men of medicine and the arts and business will be

vance toward a better life.
LAKE WALES, FLA., NEWS: "There is a lot of hazy
thinking over the country as to education. The mere fact
that a boy or girl manages to get a college diploma does not
necessarily testify conclusively that their education has
been a success. It takes more than dates, facts, formulae
and figures to make an educated human being. There
are men and women who have never been inside of a college,
but who, nevertheless, are better educated than, some of the
young graduates. When you know!what we mean by this,
you are beginning to show signs of education yourself."
John 16:7-11: "Nevertheless I tell
you the truth: It is expedient for
you that I go away; for if I go not
away, the Comforter (Holy Spirit)
will not come unto you; but if I
depart, I will send him unto you.
And when He is come, He will
reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgement:
Of sin because they believe not
on me: Of righteousness, because
I go to my Father, and ye see me
no more: Of judgement, because
the prince of this world is judged."
There are several interesting
facts given us in these verses.
First, it was necessary for the
Lord to depart from the world and
go to the Heavenly Father before
the Holy Spirit could leave the
Father and come into the world.
Just think! If Christ had not as-
cended to the Father the wonder-
ful ministry of the Holy Spirit to
day and all the things we will be
sharing in the weeks to come
would not be possible.
Second, by saying that the Holy
Spirit came into the world on the
day of Pentecost, we do not imply
that He was not here in the Old
Testament. In the Old Testament
the Spirit's abode was in Heaven
and His ministry was upon the
earth, in the New Testament the
Spirit's abode is in the Believer
and His ministry is in the world
in and through the Believer.
Third, the Holy Spirit does not
reprove (convince) the world of
the sin of murder, lieing, stealing,
etc. We already know these to be

This year will probably be long remembered for a
long time by Gulf Countians. This is the year of the revo-

This year will probably mark the first Negro instruc-
tor in Port St. Joe High School, although one has not yet
been employed. The position of business education teach-
er was offered to a Negro instructor, but the person turned
the job down.
This year will in all probability be the last year that
Washington High School will operate as a high school.
Plans are progressing with getting ready to construct a
new high school in Port St. Joe to accommodate both
white and Negro high school students.
And last, but not least, Gulf County is now a parti-
cipating county with Gulf Coast Junior College. As a
result of this cooperation, the first college courses will
be taught in Port St. Joe, beginning next week.
A revolution in education, to be sure. This year
should give us an inkling as to whether this bold step in
education will really benefit everybody concerned, or be
a miserable failure all the way round.
The controversy continues to rage over that picture
we printed of old Port St. Joe, Roy Irwin now comes in
to back up the statement that the picture is, indeed, old
Port St. Joe. He said the picture came from a collection
owned by the late George Johnson which had been turned
over to the late Joe L. Sharit. He also said the picture was
made by a photographer from Marianna who went to
school with his wife.
The plot thickens.

Gardening In Florida...
By Harvy Sharp
Within the next 34 years, two-
thirds of the world's population
may be on the verge of starvation
Much of the world's population
goes to bed hungry each night
and suffers from'malnutrition.
During the first 1500 years of the
Christian era, the world's popula-
tion doubled reaching 500 million.
During the next 400 years it tripled
to about 1.5 billion by 1900. But,
during the first 66 years of this
century, world population has al-
most doubled again. It is expected
to reach or exceed & billion by the
What caused the acceleration in
The big explosion actually was
touched off as recently as the
1940's and the fuse was the sudden
availability of pesticides and mir-
acle drugs. Once DDT and the an-
tibiotics gained widespread distri-
bution,' death rates dropped. More
infants survived the hazardous
early years, and more adults won
a longer life expectancy.
By 1980 the food deficit in un-
derdeveloped countries should be
somewhere between 47 million and
240 million tons of food, depend-
ing on whether populations were
fed subsistence diets or adequate
According to Dr. E. T. York, Jr.,
provost for Agriculture at the Un-
iversity' of .Florida, "There is no
precedent by which we can assess
the impact of this population ex-
plosion. Even more significant than
the additional billions of people is
Sthe fact' that most of these will be
added in regions of the world
least able to support them."
Three vast'areas of the world
make up the two-thirds of the
world's population which is already
under-fed, and where the problem

City Commission Makes Study of Drain
Problems and Possible Solutions
The trouble of drainage, which
made itself so apparent during the
past two weeks was brought up at
"the City Commission meeting
Commissioner Tom Coldewey
said that he had taken it upon him-
self to have a survey made of trou-
eral ditches be cleaned, culverts
cleaned out, lowered and enlarged
and pointed out that one of the
main drains to the Northern sec-
tion of the City needed extensive
work in the Chicken House Branch
area. He recommended that the
Mosquito Control organization be
will be most serious in the near
future Asia, Africe, and Latin
Growing worry about the popula-
tion crisis is giving a needed push
to government programs to curb
birth rates. But people need food
Dr. York said India, Pakistan,
and Red China are already in the
throses of nearfamine and must
import grain in large quantities.
The million in India and Pakistan
are heavily dependent on food sup-
plies from the United States.
We have exported $15 billion
worth of farm products to neady
people and emerging nations all
over the world since 1954. This pro-
gram has. helped more than 100
million people a year in more than
We are now shipping over a
million tons of food grain a month
to India. At least one-forth of the
U. S, wheat crop will be consumed
in India this year. Never before
in history has any country com-
mitted such a large share of its
food producing resources to the
welfare of another country.
Few Asian nations are able to
provide their people with an ad-
equate diet. Their problem, loaded
with potential for future tragedy,
is where to find food for the 1.6
billion additional people that they
must feed in the next 34 years.
