Two Accidents In
City During Week
Two accidents inside the city
this past week resulted in one au-
tomobile being extensively damag-
ed and two with lesser damages;
but no injuries.
Monday afternoon a "bumping"
occurred at the intersection of
Highway 98 and Second Street ac-
cording to City Patrolman James
Graves. Graves' report shows that
Mrs. L. Z. Henderson pulled up to
the stop light at the intersection
and had her auto struck from be-
hind by a car driven by Mrs. Susie

Oak Grove Wants Water
Oak Grove wants a good water system.
The citizens of this area have taken the first step
toward attaining the goal of a piped, treated, water sys-
tem to replace a hundred or sp shallow and deep wells that
serve up water which is just a short distance from contam-
On top of the contamination, the water, for the most
part, must be run through softeners before it is anywhere
near desirable fdr use and to taste.
These little independent systems, and their attendant
softening systems, cost a pretty penny to operate and main-
tain. If the average home owner in Oak Grove kept books
on everything that went into their private water systems,
they would probably be shocked at the cost.
We particularly like their idea of wanting to tie on
to the system of the City of Port St. Joe.
This would work for the healthful benefit of the people
of Port St. Joe the healthful and convenient benefit of
the people of Oak Grove.
A good, healthy, dependable water system for the peo-
ple of Oak Grove is just as important to the -people of
Port St. Joe as it is to the people of Oak Grove. Should
contaminated water start disease in this area, Port St. Joe
would not likely be totally immune.
Joining to the system of Port St. Joe would be bene-
ficial to Oak GrOve in two ways economy and depend- .
Should the area of !Oak Grove consent to become a
part of the City of Port St. Joe, and should the City accept
them, their water rates would be the same as those now paid
by residents in Port St. Joe. The residents of Port St. Joe
now get water service at the minimum rate, plus garbage
,collection twice a week, plus sewer service at the same price
Highland View pays for minimum water bills for only wa-
ter service. This, of course, is because of the volume of
If Oak Grove went it alone, their minimum bill would
in all likelihood be higher than Highland View, because
they have less potential customers. It might be pointed'
out also that Highland View's bills are just high enough to
pay a minimum for operation costs and to pay on the loan
received for the system. If they have a breakdown, which
can happen, Highland View will have no money for repairs.
In the economy department Port St. Joe purchases
water about as cheap as it can be purchased anywhere in
this part of the state. The water is treated .-it is "soft"
corrosive materials are at a minimum the service
is good trained crews are already on hand to maintain
The savings from ruined pipes, water heaters, wash-
ing machines, etc., from corrosion by "hard" water should
be enough to sway opinion based on economies. But the
fact that a crew is already on the payroll, already budgeted,
already trained and a proven system already operating
will afford economies that are desirable.
Whether Oak Grove desires to come into the city or
not at this time, we don't know. But, we would like for
their planning to be toward using our /system, because
eventually, we believe the area will be incorporated to the
Port St. Joe limits. This would make the transition easier.

CUTTING THE PIE
In most 'restaurants these days the waitress cuts a
pie into six pieces and half-a-dozen customers get served
dessert from the pie. For those of us who remember the
quarter-pie servings that grandmother used to dish out,
the restaurant servings seem pretty thin. But imagine
cutting a pie into thirteen slices? The impression would
be inescapable that any pie cut thirteen ways wasn't really
much of a pie, right?
Yet that is precisely what happens to the budget of
the United States Government, and the consequence is
that the size of the whole pie doesn't register on the custo-
mers-in this case the members of Congress.
"Once the budget is received in Congress," writes Sen-
ator Gordon Allott, of Colorado, "it is dissected into 13
separate appropriation bills and is never again looked upon
as a whole." The Senator has introduced a bill (S. 1611)
which would require Congress to adopt a resolution that the
total amount contained in the separate bills must be ap-
proved before any money could be spent. The Congress is
the constitutional watchdog of the US treasury and reas-
sembling all thirteen slices of the budget pie for all the
members to inspect seems to us a very logical deterrent to
Senator John J. Williams, of Delaware, who has ex-
posed more scandals and boondoggles than anyone else in
Congress that we can think of recently reviewed some of
the unconventional and highly questionable devices used
to make the Administration's budget look better. For
example; the budget treated the looting of our silver coin-
age as a "profit" of $1.5 billion, and added it,to revenues.
Senator Williams then pointed out that in the years 1964
through 1967 the present Administration had spent a total
of $40% billion more than had been collected in revenues.
Shortly thereafter it was admitted at the White House that
the 1968 deficit might run as high as $28 billion. That
would put the average deficit for each of the five years at
$13.7 billion. .' -
Those figures are clear evidence that Congress has
been misjudging the size of the whole pie pretty seriously.
We hope Senator Allott's bill will be passed before anoth-
er budget pie comes up to Congress.
THIS DRUG WON'T SELL
Today's crave for drugs has created drugs that make
you "live", drugs that make you brave, drugs that make
you happy, drugs that make you sleep, drugs that keep
you feeling "on top of the world".
But a new drug has been born. a drug that makes
you want to exert a lot of physical energy. 'When you take
this drug, all you want to do is work, work, work. We
don't know who makes this drug or for that matter whe-
ther it will ever be manufactured for the consuming pub-
lic, but we don't have much hope for it. This drug will
never make it. People might want to take drugs to expand
their minds and to become brave and all kinds of things
like that, but they'll never take anything to make them
work, work, work never, never, never.
in the fact that three Floridians
were among those attending the or-
ganizationi meeting and have ac-
tively promoted the effort in its
steady advancement over the years.
They were Mrs. Dorothy C. Smith,
Mrs. Mary M. Rand and the late
Dr. John Elliott, representing Jack-
sonville, Orlando and Miami Blood
Banks. Since then two other out-
standing Floridians, Dr. James
Griffiths of Miami and Dr. Robert
E. Klein of Gainesville, have ser-
ved as president. During that per-
iod the number of blood banks in
Florida have increased from three
to more than forty.
Today the organization has 4,025
members in the United States and
25 other countries. It has develop-
ed services that not only provide
life-saving blood in time of disas-
ter, but in the daily, around the
clock less spectacular needs, caus-
ed by accidents, operations and
other medical emergencies.
The Association maintains in
Chicago a central file of rare
blood donors. This has saved many
lives by quickly locating rare
matching blood when it was need-
ed. It operates a system of region-
al laboratories for identifying rare
blood types and is constantly im-
proving and expanding its service.
Acting as a national clearing
house the Association and the Red
Cross can arrange for blood credits
enabling a friend or relative in a
distant state or even a foreign
country to donate blood and have
it credited in a local bank. For
example, a patient in Hawaii re-
ceived a blood transfusion with
the credit coming from a donation
made by a friend in Orlando that
represented a substantial saving
in medical expenses.
Three Miami technicians, R. Pau-
line Schmidt, Sally Frank and Mar-
io Baugh are scheduled to present
technical papers at the 20th con-
vention of the American Associa-
tion of Blood Banks to be held in
New York, Oct. 23-25. Other Flori-
dians appearing on the program
will be Mrs. Dorothy C. Smith of
Jacksonville, Dr. Thomas C. Hart-
ney of Tampa and Dr. Robert E.

GCJC Sees Growth
Since '54 Beginning
Gulf Coast Junior College, serv-
ing Bay and Gulf Counties has
now grown to a campus containing
11 buildings and an enrollment of
1,600 from its humble beginning
in the old Wainwright Shipyard
property in 1954. Charles Bond,
administrative assistant of GCJC
gave the Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club
a short history of the college
Tuesday, and presented a slide
"tour" of the campus as it is now.
One of the features of the Jun-
ior College, the fifth constructed
in the State, is a library contain-
ing over 11,000 volumes, which is
well over the minimum set by the
Southern Association of Colleges
The junior college serves its
students in five different cate-
gories, according to Bond: College
parallel program, specialized pro-
grams, general education, student
personnel services and community
services. All instructors, except for
specialized courses, have master's
In addition to the regular enroll-
ment, Gulf Coast serves about
1,000 adult and part time students
in night time and special courses.
Since its beginning in 1954, the
school has averaged an annual
growth of 28% in enrollment.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida
We.never have had too much faith in the credibility of TV com-
mercials. They just have always seemed "too far out" to be the
real thing insofar as cause and results are concerned.
At least, we felt this way until last week.
We never knew that men could be such "caffein fiends" .
never dreamed they could be as cruel and demanding over their
cuppa cawfee as the Folger's commercial says they are .. even
to the point of fussing at a new bride.
I believe it now!
There is a beatnik coffee pot in the rear of Buzzett's Drug Store.
(We say "beatnik" because it is never washed just rinsed.) The
coffee is usually made by Mrs. Walter Richardson or Mrs. Barney
Alsobrook. During the day, men from all over town drop by to
discuss baseball, football, politics, weather, hunting, fishing all
the important things of life and have a cup of coffee.
Two days last week the coffee was made by Mrs. Charles Tharpe,
substituting for her mother, Mrs. Barney Alsobrook.
This is what made a believer out of us.
Dick Lamberson drew himself a cup, looked at it, turned up
his nose and stated, "you could flounder in this coffee". Dr. Wayne
Hendrix ran out a generous cup and remarked, "who made the cof-
fee this morning." About this time, Gannon Buzzett, owner of the
coffee pot, came back, drew a cup and remarked, "hot dog, she
did it again!"
All of these unkind remarks were made in the hearing of
substitute, "Little Mae". But "Little Mae" paid them no mind.
We suggested to "Little Mae" that she switch to Folger's. (Al-
though I never touch the stuff, we had to offer this remark to get
"Little Mae" out of her predicament and get these grouchy, com-
plaining males on a kinder note.)
"I use Folger's at home, and get no complaints", said Big Mae

Max Kilbourn came in the barber shop the other day and sat
down to await his turn in the chair.
He picked up a magazine and started staring at a picture of

Homecoming Parades, put on by the kids at the High School. Most
of. them were fine parades with many imaginative floats.
But, I don't think I have ever seen the calibre of floats as those
displayed last Friday afternoon. They were truly a credit to the
imagination and workmanship of our young people.

Chrysler-Plymouth To Washington Hi,
"Driver Education is unquestion-
ably one of the most important sin-
gle advances in developing proper
driving attitudes .among young
people," says Robert Rogers of Ro-
gers P. C. Crysler Plymouth.
Through Driver Education cour-
ses and qualified Driver Education
instructors our young, people get
much better training in safe and
skillful driving than ever before.
Yet the need for Driver Education
and Driver Education cars has be-
come acute and its importance
will continue to grow in proportion
to our increasing car population.
Today, there are 24,000 DriverI
Education cars being used through-
out the country. By ,1970 the need
will have grown to 38,000 units
and by 1975 to 41,000 cars.
As his contribution toward teach-
ing good highway citizenship to
young people, Robert Rogers of
Rogers P. C. Chrysler Plymouth,
furnishes 20 1968 Plymouth cars
to Bay and Gulf County schools.
The Driver Education cars include
all standard safety equipment.

Homecoming was a big week
for St. Joe High. Students were
busy working on various floats
for the parade last Friday after-
noon.' The Junior Class managed
to maintain the tradition and
win first prize. The Pep Club
and Art Club tied for second
place, and the senior class 'was
third with their float.
The 'annual "lick 'em day" was
held Friday to help boost school
spirit. MThe Student, Council sold
suckers for students to have in
class all day.
The crowning of the queen
during the halftime show was
the most exciting part of home-
coming. The Diver's Club spon-
sored the winning candidate for
queen, Barbara Buzzett.
Mrs. Mary Jo Patterson met with
the home economics teachers in
Clearwater Friday and Saturday.
Mrs. Virginia Harrison met with
the language art teachers in Or-
