Craig Warns Gulf Will Lose
38 Teachers At Year's End
All Five County Schools Face Serious Loss of Personnel
Superintendent of Public Instruction, R. Marion Craig, told the Gulf County School
Trustees in a meeting Thursday of last week that Gulf County faces the loss of up to
38 teachers at the end of the current school year. Subsequent reports from the various
principals in the county bore out Craig's statement by reporting that nearly this number
have already tendered their resignations. Craig told the Trustees that for one reason or
another, this number of teachers have indicated they will not be back to teach in Gulf
County to teach next year.
The school to be hardest hit by '
the teacher exoaus will be thme

Project to Attract
Teachers to County
. Port St. Joe's Jaycees inaugur-
ated a program Monday night to
try for a public "Hard Sell" pro-
gram to try and attract and
keep teachers in Gulf County
At a, meeting called by the
Jaycees Monday night, and held
in the Port St. Joe High School
Auditorium with local civic lea-
ders in, attendance, Jaycee Tom
Ford introduced a program being
sponsored by that local organi-
zation. The program, in effect,
would serve to help local school

Ford said, "This is not an or-
ganizational meeting. This pro-
gram is started as far as the Jay-
cees are concerned, we just want
the help of every civic organi-
zation in Gulf County to help
sell the good points of our coun-
ty to 'prospective teachers."
Ford said, "We have good
schools in Gulf County, but the
situation worsens each year with
other locales and states gobbling
up prospective teachers. Gulf
County faces a serious teacher
shortage next year, and the Jay-
cees propose -to do something
about it with your help."
Ford told those present that
he felt the area had much to
offer in' the good life and he
thought a hard -sell program and
possibly a "welcome" attitude by
local citizens would be the neces-
sary ingredient for attracting
Jaycee Robert Nedley said
that the Jaycees are proposing
a positive program of attraction
for teachers, not some vague out-
line of what might be.
The Jaycees are proposing, ac-
cording to Nedley, that local
people accompany school people
on teacher recruiting trips arm-
ed with positive information con-
cerning the attributes of living
in Gulf -County.
Nedley called for friendlier
-relations between citizens and
school teachers, as "acceptance"
into a community means a lot to
any new resident. He also pro-
posed that prospects be apprised
of Gulf County's beach attrac-
tions, hunting, fishing and low
cost of living as compared to
some of the areas paying higher
The program will also help to
secure proper housing for new
teacher families moving to the
area. They will attempt to se-
cure discounts for new teacher
families setting up housekeeping
in Gulf County.
Nedley said "we must first sell
the community on the necessity
of this project, then we will be
able to sell our area to prospec-

Contractors Begin Work On St. Joseph
Peninsula Park; August Is Target Date
B & W Construction Company
of Quincy began work last week
on the first phase of facility con-
struction at the new St. Joseph
Peninsula State Park.
B & W has received a contract
from the Florida Park Board in
the amount of $130,000 to construct
necessary buildings for the first
phase of park utilization. The con-
struction is at the park entrance
and the Eagle Harbor area and
consists of ranger quarters, equip-
ment buildings, rest rooms, and
necessary structures in camping
and picnic areas.
Picnic, boat launching and camp
sites are also under construction
by the Park Board.
Completion of the first phase of
work is expected to be sometime
in August. At this time some 600
acres of the park will be utilized
for public use.
Already the new park is drawing
many people to the area, and the
area is much in use especially on
week ends. Inquiries concerning
the park, from out of state people
has also stepped up considerably.
In keeping wtih the pending
completion of the park, local park

A 'DANGEROUS THING
In a nation that specializes in taking the seven-day
period known as the week and dramatizing it, probably
the least dramatic is NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK.
To young people preoccupied with where the boys
are, where the books are can hardly be defined as top
drawer entertainment. '
To a comic-strip oriented adult mind, agog with the
fictionalized adventures of Batman and the real-life es-
capades of the astronauts, a book can hardly be described
as a dangerous weapon.
And yet, we submit it is most dangerous. For pro-
perly used it not only opens the oyster of the mind, but
leads to. the discovery of the pearl of knowledge. And
knowledge is a dangerous weapon indeed. It can be used
for unending good or subverted to almost unending evil.
Therefore, we heartily recommend to all our readers
that they celebrate NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK. We
suggest they live dangerously by reading more. And we
urge them tofind out where the books are the public
library. And for the younger fry the school library as
For when they do discover the library they will find.
it filled not only with adventure and excitement and
pleasure, but also some shocking inadequacies.
Chances are, they'll find it hasn't enough books. Sta-
tistics tell us Florida has only .74 bopks per person in its
public libraries when it should have at least two; or by
national standards, four. They will discover that only
three out of 132, public libraries in our state meet the
minimum standards for staffing; and that the staff is
underpaid. And they will also find we spend' some fifty
percent less per capital on our library needs that we should.
They might even discover-to all our shame-that
we are one of the few states in the union that does not
have a State Public Library Building. Ours is jammed
into-the sub-basement of the Supreme Court Building in
NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK is a worthwhile cause
by any measurement. We have only one complaint; it
should be celebrated every week of every, year.
NOT A LUXURY
According to statistics from the Federal Aviation
Authority, it takes the usual small locale, such as Port
St. Joe and Gulf County in the neighborhood of $15,000
to construct an airport which will mean unmeasured rev-
enue and attributes to the area it serves.
An airport's attraction to industry, according to this
same agency and the Florida Development Commission
is on the "most wanted list" of industry trying to find a
home. In this day of high competition and, fast moving
business, an airport is almost a necessity to 'any1 industry
of any size and to any community which wishes to
It is surprising to find out that private or corporate
aircraft logs over four times as many air miles as schedul-
ed and non-scheduled airlines and carries twice the passen-
ger loads. The busiest airport in the State of Florida
caters strictly to private and corporate aircraft. Not ar
single airliner uses this most-used of Florida airports.
So, you see, a possibility of future airline service is
not the yardstick by which to measure the need for an
airport by Port St. Joe or any other community. The
needs of industry, which pays our salary and most of our
taxes and the needs of citizens for fast and convenient
'conveyance and communication are yardsticks which
-should be considered. Considering these, Port St. Joe and
-Gulf County, with its promising industrial future, can
ill afford the luxury of not having an airport.
We are not saying that our lack of attraction to in-'
*dustry during the past four years has been because we do
not have landing field facilities. But we are saying that
we believe that our future growth will be more swift and
could very possibly hinge on whether or not fast, depend-
able transportation is available nearby.
An airport has ceased to be a luxury or a plaything.
It has evolved into a necessity for an economy which Port
St. Joe must depend on to survive and grow.
Talk to your City Commission and your County Com-
missioner. A joint effort in this area would be of immense
value to the entire county -and would be entirely feasible
if both of our governing bodies could pool their efforts.

Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
You may. not realize it but shop-
lifting today is costing you plenty
in increased living costs. Every
article stolen from a merchant in
your community increases the
price the honest consumer must
pay for his merchandise.
The FBI reports that shoplift-
ing arrests have increased 79 per-
cent in the past five years and
points out that three times as many
shoplifters are not caught and
their activities are costing the con-
sumer millions of dollars in in-
creased living costs.
Shoplifting is costing merchants
over three million dollars a year.
Merchants working on a small pro-
fit margin such as! super markets
find that for every $5 shoplift it
must increase sales $500 to offset
the loss. Imperative markups to
help offset such losses you are
called on to pay.'
And who are the shoplifters?
Believe it or not, fifty percent of
them are teen-age delinquents.
They do not come from across the
railroad tracks, or are they so
called under-privileged youngsters,
but come largely from middle in-
come or well-to-do families. Kids

advantage but engage in shoplift-

Parents confronted with evi-

ISAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR
Almost everything on the state level is being overshadowed by
attempts now being made to upgrade the education situation in
the state. And foremost in these attempts is the need being ex-
pressed to put Florida back in the running to attract teachers
with a suitable salary. For years Florida has been in the enviable
situation of paying better than surrounding states. The higher
salary, along with the magic word "Florida" made teachers rela-
tively easy to get.
This situation didn't mean that Florida was paying an accept-
able salary. It merely meant that Florida was paying better than
the other states which still hadn't awaken to the fact that the
dollar didn't buy as much any more as it did in the 30's and 40's.
Now Florida is is the same situation that Alabama, Mississippi,
Georgia and other states were in a few years back. Florida is of-
fering less as a salary than her neighboring states. And. for some
reason or other, when you remove "decent salary" frqm the magic
word "Florida" the honeymoon is over the romance is remov-
ed. The attributes of "Florida" do not overcome the opportunity to
earn a living. 9
RELIEF IN SIGHT
A bill is now before the Legislature to allocate $277 million dol-
lars for education which will set up a basic salary of $5,000 per
year. The annual increases will be greater than in the past and
will probably put Florida back in the running as far as attracting
It looks like this bill will pass as nearly a majority of the House
of Representatives is sponsoring the bill.
ON THE LOCAL SCENE
On the local scene, Gulf County teachers have asked for a
salary increase of 10% next year, regardless of what the Legislature
does in the next few weeks. Wi the possibility of losing up to
38 teachers this year or nearly a third of the Gulf County
teaching force it looks like the School Board will grant the
increase. We believe the Board wants to grant the increase if
they can manage the financing.
WHAT OF THE FUTURE
This is all right for the time being. This will stop the flow
of teachers from our county for a year or two. But what of the
future. Do we stop here until faced with a similar situation in
a few years to' come? Do we rest on our status quo? If we do

well to have kept. It seems that we are content to remedy the sit-
uation at hand after much prodding and then go back to. sleep
until jarred awake again.
LET'S KEEP UP TO DATE
We really don't know how it could be done, but it would seem
a rewarding thing to do to set up some kind of committee within
the School Board not the teaching profession along with a
private individual or two to remain at all times familiar with salary
and working condition needs among our teaching force. This
same committee could be charged with maintaining quality within
our teaching staff ability as well as their working situation. For
every individual to remain abreast of the abilities of teachers is
an impossible task. Only a close scrutiny will maintain an accept-
able education program in our county or any other county.
We almost waited too late this time, but we hope that steps
are taken so that this situation will not repeat itself in the future.

Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion Marion Craig told the Port

Craig said that the problem of
maintaining a full staff of teachers
in Gulf County schools has become
very acute. "We are going to have
to raise more money before next

The .Superintendent said that 38
teachers have already notified the
Board of Public Instruction that
they will ,nqt be back in Gulf

J 'ior Colleges Now Take Most of
New College Entries'Says Tapper
;George G. Tapper told the Ki-
Wanis Club Tuesday that half of
the students who enter institutions
of higher learning in Florida now
enter Junior Colleges.
Florida's Junior colleges have
mushroomed during the past 10
years. The first Junior College was
established in Florida in 1927 in
St. Petersburg with the second
started in Palm Beach in 1933. In
1955 there were only four Junior
Colleges in the entire state. Now
there are 25.
Tapper said that it is the aim of
the Junior College program to
provide a school within commuting
distance of every graduating sep-
lor in the State. The prograpi now
provides this handy service for
85%, and 90,000 students this past
year took advantage of the pro-
The program has advanced to
where a curriculum as good as or
better than that offered in the first
two years of four year universities
is now offered in the 25 Junior
Colleges. The program has grown
so that beginning this fall the Jun-
ior Colleges will operate on a year
Tapper said that this tremen-
dous growth and quality of the
Florida Junior College since 1957
is a credit to the State of Florida.
Guests of the club were Bob
Holland and student guests Judy
Herring and Charlotte Marshall.

Williams said his school also
faces the situation of having about

Williams said that 20 elementary

Washington High enrollment is
down to 170 in grades seven

Williams has 12 teachers for

these being on continuing contract.
