Next Tuesday is the time for'all freeholders of Gulf
County to go to the polls and cast their ballots in the school
village election. And, once again, 'we would like to editor-
.ially endorse the 10 mills the Board is requesting.
We would like to point out that this is nothing new.
The Gulf County Board of Public Instruction has been re-
questing the 10 mill levy every two years for the past 20
years. Every year that we can remember, they have need-
ed every penny, except last year, when they levied only
eight of the possible ten mills. This year the Board levied
the full 10 mills to finance a 10% raise in salary for Gulf's
The 10 mills being requested isn't all the Board may
legally receive in taxes. State law allows the Board to
levy up to 10 mills without a vote of the freeholders and
up to an additional 10 mills if the freeholders approve in
the village elections every two years. A decision next
Tuesday to levy the 10 extra mills will be for only a two
year period. The School Board may levy all or any part
of the permissive 10 mills.
Of the 10 mills which State law allows, without a vote,
the Board is now levying 3.3 mills and an additional .81
mills for bonded indebtedness for a total of 4.11 mills.
This can increase by only 10% each year, due to the State
roll-back law brought into effect by re-valuation. So, in
effect, the 14.11 mills being levied by the School Board this
year is all the local taxes that may be levied by the Board
by law and by vote. Any increase next year will be 10%
of the 4.11 mills. The 10 mills cannot be increased.
As you can see, the Board is pretty well bound by the
amount of taxes which may be levied upon you, the tax
payer. Their source of income is limited.
Let's look at what would happen to Gulf County's
School system if the 10 mills is not granted. In short, we
would be in much the same delimma that Bay County is
now in-faced with the closing of our schools. If the 10
mills is not granted, it would take $380,000 in income from
the schools. This amounts to about one sixth of the entire
school budget. This is too much of a lick at our school
system to satisfy any "beef" we may have with "the way
th' school are run".
Many of you are paying taxes out, of your pocket, for
the first time. This hurts and it takes some getting use
to. But, "the way the schools are run" isn't the reason
you are now having to pay taxes. The taxes have always
been-paid. Someone else was just paying your share.
Ordinarily we.wouldn't be concerned with this subject.
In the past, the millage election has been more or less an
"automatic" approval of the 10 mills .. by the people
who were paying their share and yours too. The schools
still need the local money to operate until some other sys-
tem is devised on a state level.
We would urge that you go to the polls Tuesday and
vote for the 10 mill levy if you are a Gulf County freeholder
-one who pays taxes in this county.

Port St. Joe's annual Christmas parade, we think, has
become an affair that is eagerly awaited by ypung and
old alike. The people who enter floats, cars, 'exhibits and
groups in the parade do a fine job.
But do you have any idea how much work goes into
these entries? Some of the floats that appear to be very
simple, have as many as 50 to 80 man hours of work in
their construction. The merchants of Port St. Joe spend
several hundred dollars to supply prize money, cAndy, sup-
plies and other expenses involved in the parade.
The parade as you see it on Saturday morning in-
volves a substantial investment on the part of everyone.
It is freely provided and offered for your enjoyment.
This is not a pitch for anything. It is merely to point
out that a great deal of effort and money has been spent
to provide you a moment of delight on Saturday. We are
inviting you to be there bring the kids stay to
the end. Reap the benefits of the labor that has expended
Christmas parades in the past in Port St. Joe have
been extremely well attended. Everyone seems to have a
good time, and everyone has appeared to appreciate what
has been offered them.
Consider this your personal invitation to attend the
current edition of Port St. Joe's Christmas parade Sat-

But today, if you have establish-

you can write a check for more
than your balance will cover and
your bank will cover it with what
they call your revolving credit.

country have been devising sys-

of credit in two ways: (1) by over-

automatically transfers funds from

Russell Kay points out in his column, "Too Late To Classify"
this week, that it won't be long before nobody will carry around any
cash anymore or even handle any hard currency.
I was glad to read this piece by the venerable Mr. Kay. It was
a welcome piece of news because it let me know that at last, I am
first with something. I have been without hard cash for years.
I pity the rest of you when you catch up to me.
No doubt you, too, received your new telephone directory the
other day. If you haven't, you had better call the business office
of the phone company. Your's was lost or you were overlooked
In the mailing.
We noticed that the new directory Is slightly fatter than last
year's edition. The Port St. Joe listings are a page longer than
the city listings in last year's book. The beaches have picked up
about a half page.
This would add fuel to the suspicion that we are growing,
slowly but surely and apparently permanently, since the
growth has bought telephones. And, they are buying newspapers
too. The Star is printing about 150 more papers more now than
at this same time last year. And they are still all sold each week.
Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen spoke in Jacksonville last
week, giving his usual flowery oratory with a message that isn't
hard to find. Dirksen told his audience, "I'm fed up with hearing
what's wrong with America Somebody ought to start saying
what's right with it."
It's not hard to figure out what's right about our nation is it.
But few people take the time to say it. But maybe the reason is
that nobody can really do it justice even the silvery tongued
Mr. Dirksen. One of the worst things wrong with our nation, as
we see it is that it is unfortunate that Mr. Dirksen is not now
young enough to embark on a career as its president.
One of the most entertaining sights in the City of Port St.
Joe, is in watching City Attorney Silas R. Stone making a speech
or at a City Commission meeting. Silas will entertain me for
hours, unwittingly. He'll have the same effect on you if you
know what to look for.
Silas wears glasses. And, he has two pair of them with him
at all times. When Silas is dozing, listening, or looking up at the
ceiling, he wears a pair of light rimmed glasses. When someone
hands him a document to "glance over", he will take off his doz-
ing, looking, and listening glasses and put on a pair of black
horn rims. But now, let someone hand Silas something to read
seriously, and off comes both pair and Silas digs in bare eyed.
Like I said, it keeps me entertained-for hours.
The City's Christmas decorations are now up, and we have
heard comments from travelers that they are the prettiest of any
City in this area. Port St, Joe's decorations for the past five or six
years have been a credit to the town. New numbers have been
added this year which should make the City a sight to see at
Brother Will has a column in his paper up at Chattahoochee.
He has it on the front page, with a heading at the top and a pic-
ture in it, just like any other columnist. But, we have noticed
that Brother Will changes pictures about every few weeks or
month or so. But then, Brother Will was always the uncertain
one of the family, forever changing his mind, flitting about and
never still very long. But me ... I'm the steady one ... I have-
n't changed my picture in 10 years.

Swinging Son of Sunny California
Is.National March of Dimes Child
Timothy Faas, a 4-year-
old California swinger who
'likes his music loud and
fast, has -been chosen as the
1968 National March of
Dimes Child. for the 30th
Despite a'leg-paralyzing birth
defect, Timmy thrives on the
up-tempo of California living. A
problem he still must solve is
finding the hours for all he
wants to do. There are games
to be played outdoors and
books to be colored inside,
visits to Sunday School and
Disneyland, Beatle records for
dancing and favorite television
programs to watch.
BuqL Timmy's mental go-
power is sometimes slowed
down by his physical handi-
caps. His active routine must
stop every day, for physical
therapy at home as well as
regular visits to a March of
Dimes Birth Defects Treat-
ment Center in Los Angeles.
Timmy, who has been an
outpatient at Orthopaedic Hos-
pital since infancy, represents
the quarter of a million chil-
dren born every year in this
country with a birth defect;
The March of Dimes supports
nearly 100 research and treat-
ment centers in its campaign to
overcome the tragedies of birth
The handsome, outgoing little
boy has never known a world
without doctors, hospital wait-
ing rooms and heavy leg braces.
Timmy was born with club-
foot and open spine, a spinal
disorder which caused paraly-
sis of his legs. Hydrocephalus,
"water on the brain," de-
veloped later but was arrested
His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Michael Faas of Whittier, began
bringing Timmy to the March
of Dimes Center at Ortho-
paedic Hospital when he was
five months old. They were liv-
ing in Maimi, Fla., when he
was born, but returned to
southern California to be near
Timmy already had under-
gone successful surgery to re-
pair his open spine, but doctors
in Florida doubted that he
would ever walk and gave him
a 50 per cent chance of leading
a normal life.

medical team, Timmy walks

paedic Hospital in Los Angeles.
must wear a spread-a-bar on
his feet, although' casts have
helped the clubfoot condition.
None of this seriously im-
pedes Timmy's pursuit of the
good things of life, as seen
through the eyes of a small
boy. Even though he must
move slowly across a play-
ground, he has never been
allowed to think of himself as
"different." Nor do his parents
treat him any differently from
his brother, Mikey, a normal
6-year-old in the first grade.
Timmy enjoys announcing
that he wants to be "Tarzan"
when he grows up. By way of
emphasis, he pounds his chest
and gives the ape-man yell. He
also likes to swing into the
"Jerk" with his aunt, Vicki,
and the two of them have
worked out a special arrange-
ment. His musical loyalties are
divided between the Monkees
and the Beatles.
'In quieter moments, he likes
to coloi, L_ read to, or play
with his black poodle, Touche.
Timmy and his brother were
baptized in the Mormon Church
and he z tends primary class
at the Fifth Ward on Santa Fe
Road in Whittier.
His favorite foods include
hot dogs, chocolate milk, tacos
and anything sweet.
Young Timmy will bring ex-
perience to his role as Poster
Child for the coming year. In
1967 he was named Poster Boy
for Los Angeles County and
learned to shake famous hands
When the March of Dimes
campaign opens in January,
Timmy.hopes to visit the White
House and meet President
Lyndon B. Johnson as part of
a month-long tour of cities
around the country.
The tour will emphasize the
continuous work carried on by
the March of Dimes to rid so-
ciety of birth defects-the
Great Destroyer. The voluntary
health organization has de-
voted its resources and energy
to this fight since the polio vac-
cine halted the menace of in-
fantile paralysis. Its national
program provides for medical
care, research and education to
combat the hundreds of kinds
of birth defects.

hunt areas in the Panhandle.

than a week ago, with 512 report-

Quail hunters are really having
it rough because of the dryness
and 70-80 degree weather. How-
ever, this week's total was 787

Other totals were 52 turkeys,
1,261 squirrels, 299 ducks, 80 dove,
81 wild hogs, four snipe and one
Last week's totals for the same
species were 59 turkeys, 1,482
squirrels, 117 dove, 179 wild hogs,
two snipe and two woodcock, plus
two bear and two rabbits.

Totals through Thanksgiving Day

THIRTY-FIRST YEAR PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, 32456THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1967 NUMBER 12
Forest Fires Increased Over
Last Year; Vigilance Asked
With 1967 already on record as
a "bad" fire year, earlier hopes for
an upturn during the closing
three months of the year are
"Midway in the closing quarter
it is quite clear," notes State For-
ester C. H. Coulter, "that Florida's
fire averages won't heal during this
During the past six weeks 487
fires swept 4,414 acres of forest
land. The same period one year
ago--October 1 through Novem-
ber 15-scored 227 fires and scor-
ehed 2,793 acres.
More than 6,600 separate forest
fires have occurred in Florida
since January 1, 1967 burning 161,-
737 acres nearly triple for the
same period the previous year.
Coulter urges all Floridians to
use extra caution at this time, and
he cites the reasons why.
Statewide, rainfall is well below
normal. It is the traditional fire
season, and killing frosts have oc-
curred in the upper reaches of the
state. Frost-killed vegetation in-
variably adds to the already vola-
tile conditions of the season. It is
the hunting season and careless
smokers or untended campfires in-
crease wildfire hazards.
The U. S. Weather Bureau's long
range forecast suggests "light pre-
cipitation, low humidity, and below
normal temperatures" during the
weeks immediately ahead.
The State Forester said tree far-
mers and other landowners should
commence immediate fall plowing
of fire lanes. "And a little extra
care on the part of all residents,"
said Coulter, "can make a forest of
Gulf County- has had 35 for-
est fires since January 1, 1967
burning 257 acres of forest
lands. Last year's records show
the County having 34 wild fires
burning 120 acres of forest
lands according to H. A. Hardy,

Jimmie Prevatt spoke to the
Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club Tues-
day of last week. Prevatt was ask-
ing for the club's support in creat-
ing a United Fund here in Port
Prevatt explained to the Kiwan-
ians that the United Fund is a
payroll deduction method of giving
to all charitable drives in one
campaign. "The main savings",
Prevatt said, "Is in manpower. We
use the same people to conduct
nine drives a year in Port St. Joe
and it works a hardship on these
people as well as being a nuisance
to the donors".
The speaker said that in using
the United Fund way, each charit-
able organization would file its
funds request to the United Fund.
The UF would then attempt to se.
cure pledges, by payroll deduc-
tion over the period of a year, to
finance the good works of the var-
ious organizations. Prevatt point-
ed out that already seven of the
nine drives conducted in Port St.
Joe will cooperate with the UF
type drive. He pointed out that
these two might be coerced into
joining the UF, if workers are not
available for their drives.
A United Fund program would
be conducted throughout the year,
operated by a Board of Directors,
who would approve of all requests

The earnings of farm workers
are to be reported for Social Se-
curity purposes before the end of
January 1968, according to John V.
Carey, District Manager of the
Panama City Social Security Office.
Now is the time to be getting the
necessary records together. The
Social Security report on farm
workers is only made once a year
and must cover wages paid during
the entire year 1967.
Farm workers who were paid as
much as $150 cash wages for the
entire year 1967 must be reported,
Carey continued. A farm worker
who was not paid $150 cash wages
must also be reported if he work-
ed some part of 20 different days
Individuals who employ farm
workers will receive the necessary
report forms from the Internal
Revenue Service if they made a
report for the year 1966, Carey ad-.
ded. Employers of farm workers
who have not made the yearly So-
cial Security report should request
the necessary form 943 from In-
ternal Revenue, Jacksonville, Flo'r-
ida, right away.
Employers are responsible for
paying the total Social Security tax
to Internal Revenue, Carey con-
cluded. The total tax for wages
paid during 1967 was 8.8 percent,
4.4 withheld from the worker and
4.4 for the employer.

matters, contact the Internal Reve-
nue Service, and always contact

matters. The office for this area is

These young ladies at their kitchen tea party make
sure the insecticide says "Non-Toxic to Humans and
Pets" right on the aerosol. Even in the indoor season,
insects can be a problem. It is especially important at
this time to select an insecticide that is not harmful
around children, food and pets. Sprays that say "Non-
Toxic to Humans and Pets" boldly on the label contain
pyrethrins, nature's own insecticide. Only insects are
affected and quickly. There is no need to worry about
harm to children at play around the house, no matter
where they choose to hold their next tea party.
DIAGNOSTIC AND COUNSELING

sional time expenditure and client income level. No
referral is- necessary but an appointment time
must be secured.
Any individual with school problems, behav-
ior problems, emotional disturbances, or persons
with marital problems would be appropriate candi-

Protect Your Plants From
Cold Freezing Weather Now

Common sense says that plants
and girls in mini-skirts will have
to cover up if they are going to
keep warm this winter.
Some tender young beauties in
shorts claim warmth from a mink
stole. But plants aren't talking.
They need more of the anatomy
covered because their lower limbs
are subject to freezing.
Instead of collecting fur pieces,
check around the neighborhood
for more practical materials. These
include wood, cloth, paper, Span-
ish moss, pine straw and plastics.
Earth is also valuable when
banking young citrus trees from
a freeze. But with the high cost
of real estate, the neighbors will
ready for operation.

By: /s/ FRANK -PATE,
prefer that you use your own soil.
If you cover shrubs with plastic
bags, be sure to set them free
shortly after 'Ole Sol melts the
frost. Otherwise a prized orna-
mental may be stewed in its own
juice inside this collector of sun
Frost has no'terrors in gardens
of well-adapted plants. But during
the sudden cold wave followed a
prolonged warm period some
plants need a helping hand.
This means putting a blanket
around the plants, or supplying
heat. Plants are covered to slow
down the rate at which the heat
already in the plant is lost by ra-
In this case the frost damage is
mostly mechanical. That is, sharp
sided ice crystals that form inside
the leaves and tender plant stems
puncture cell walls of plant tissue,
causing death to that portion of
If cold air drifting down from
Yankeeland is already belo w
freezing, it quickly absorbs the
heat from the ornamentals and is
likely to kill the less hardy plants
to the ground.
We natives call this a hard
freeze, while Chamber of Com-
merce employees soften the term
to "unusual cold wave".
Covering plants during a hard
freeze is not very effective unless
you can prevent the icy wind from
coming in contact with the plant.
During a cold, windy night, a
light bulb under an airtight cover
may give a small plant the same
protection as a greenhouse. Oil
heaters can be used to warm larger
plants covered by giant-size sheets
of builder's plastic.
On an icy night heat is vital and
not smoke, in spite of a popular
misconception. So, it is a waste of
time burning a pile of leaves to
smoke up the neighborhood unless
you have devised a way to produce
more heat than smoke.
The first line of defense in
guarding against cold injury is to
plant only those trees and shrubs
that are completely hardy in your
locality. This doesn't mean that
you should not grow tender plants,
but such plants should not be the
framework of the garden.
Regard the less hardy ornamen-
tals for their beauty, and dori't
plant them in a spot that will leave
a serious hole in the garden com-
position when a hard freeze inev-
itably kills them to the ground.
The second line of defense

Fords in 10 months
...and here are 4
going to do it!
1. LTD and XL priced lower than last year! We
did it by changing what comes as standard
equipment and made it even easier to get
what you want. Now LTD comes with a bigger
V-8-302 cu. in.; XL has a 240-cu. in. Six and a
choice of 5 V-8's. Last year you could choose
V-8's only. On LTD and XL, 3-speed manual trans-
mission is standard, instead of SelectShift Cruise-
O-Matic-now optional. Vinyl roof on 2-door
LTD's and Comfort-Stream Ventilation are op-
tional this year. Choose them now only if you
want them. And hidden headlamps, strong die-
cast grille are all standard for '68.
2. Fastbacks priced the same as hardtopsl Take
your choice of full-sized or intermediate models,
with no extra charge for fastback styling. See the
handsome Torino GT Fastback with the luxury
ride of a 116-in. wheelbase (longer than 38 com-
peting intermediate models). Choice of bucket
seats or full-width seats for six.
3. Wagons in three sizes-all available with Ford's two-way Magic Doorgate! Only
Ford offers so wide a choice-and only Ford offers its Magic Doorgate with every
model. It opens down for cargo-opens out for passengers-and it's only one of
