Cage Teams Go

.G w T Sd
Still The President
There are some people one gets to depending on so
much that it is a shock when it comes their time to retire.
They do so much, so often and are called on to do even
more, until we more or less take them for granted and
expect them to go on forever.
Such an experience happened this week ,with the re-
tirement of Clyde A. "Skinny" Fite. "Skinny" is the
official problem solver of much of the things that go on
in the way of extra curricular activities in our city. We
have a project that needs a sign; we call on "Skinny"..
We need an idea for a project; we call on "Skinny". We'
have need for some material to affect a certain mood or
effect, we call on "Skinny".
We here at The Star have called on "Skinny" num-
erous times. We have camera trouble, we need a picture
- which we can't get, we run out of'film or .photo chemical,
and "Skinny" has the answer or the material. He has
often said, "I keep a can or two extra in case somebody
runs out". Nearly everyone in town has been aff
personally or through their organizations by "Skin
talents or his untiring efforts to help everybody.
Although he doesn't look it, "Skinny" -has re!

Although we know "Skinny" is still a part of our-
munity and as such he will still be the same old "ava
Skinny", we wan-t to publicly thank him for his
accomplishments in a civic nature in the past. We
sure you thank him too.
,"Skinny's" main boast was that he, was "Preside
the Do-Gooder's Society". He says he will maintain
honorary office, even though he is retired. That dec
is the reason for this editorial.
We here at The Stat are very proud of the two bas-
'ketball teams in our City-at Port St. Joe High School
and Washington High School. We don't wish to cast
any omen of bad luck on the two teams by offering then
congratulations now, as they still have a long way to go
toward their goals as state champions; but we have to
say that we are proud of them.
Port St. Joe High School's team has taken the first
step toward their state championship in the "B" classifi-
cation. Washington High has done likewise in the "C"
Both teams take'thb second step this week end in

It is quite an accomplishment for any town to be
to boast state champions in their midst; but Port St
has a very good chance of having both the "B" and
ptate champions in its confines. This is half the
championships in basketball.
Maybe you think we are "crowing" a little early
we would like to wish our teams every good; wish ii
coming two week ends and urge that they put forth
best efforts for their town and their school.
Both teams have performed admirably through
the season. Washington boasts a perfect record,,

larger than they. To us, they are already champions

For Conservation I
A new definition of conserva-
tion was explained to the Port St.
Joe Rotary Club last Thursday by M
Charles Salter with the Florida
Forest Service in Tallahassee
Salter said that the usual defini-
tion for conservation is to "keep
Fected from wasting", but he offered the
iny's" opinion that the proper definition
of conservation should be to "use
wisely", taking care that we re-,
ached produce as much as we use.
The "One of the most important hs
pects in conservation"; Salter said,
miss "is to maintain the 'pretty'. To,
.pany many conservationists are not con-\
l1, of cerned with this valuable product",
the speaker said, "and you have a
lot, of it in this part of the state".
com- Salter said that some of the of the lar-
ilable gest tourist attractions in the state
many sell "pretty" as their drawing card.
The speaker then showed several
e are slides' of flowers and natural beau-
ty that is native only to this area
nt of and could be a basis for selling
that "pretty" for this part of the state
athat .if it were conserved and utilized.
Vision As Salter showed -the flowers,,
and wild growth, he remarked on
several occasions,' "I can get to-
gether 100 people in Tallahassee
alone, tomorrow, who would be
willing to pay $10.00 just to see-
that particular flower".
Chapman pointed to the Chap-
man Rhododendron, ti-ti blooms,
able Stuardia, Big Leaf, Magnolia and'
Joe the Corkwood Tree which is found
<"C", only in this part of Florida.
"We ought to 'conserve these
state unique plants", Saltetr stated.
Guest of the club was Ricky Lov-
ett of Port St. Joe High School.

Congressman Bob Sike's may be in Washington, but
he remembered his raisin' last week -wheA he defended the
dish of collard greens (truly Southern) oil thd House flobr
recently. In his weekly "Newsletter", Sikes explained it
* this way: .... / ,
S.i'A few. days ago I placed in the Congressional
SRecord some comments on collard greens from the
able pen of Judge E.:1. Carswell of Chipley. The story
had appeared in the Pensacola Journal.
"I thought it appropriate to point out to my col-
leagues in Congress that it is unfortunate thatcollard
greens are neither universally known nor appreciat-
ed. Perhaps you have to e raised with collards to
know how good they cann taste.., I am one of those
Swho understands 'that collards are fine fare if they
are properly prepared in Southern kitchens. Most
Northerners haven't learned to cook pork with greens,
and collards not cooked with fat pork are hopeless,
so I don't know what can be accomplished outside
"A massive educational program would be nec-
essary to teach Northerners how to prepare and enjoy
collards, but come to think of it, this might do more
good than some of the educational programs they
send to the South. I endorse all that Judge Carswell
said about the tastefulness 'of other Southern delica-
cies like blackeyed peas (field peas are better), hog
jowl, pork ribs, sugar cane syrup, candied yams (but
a properly baked SMALL sweet potato doesn't need
to be candied), hog head cheese, crackling bread, pot
liquor, hoe-cake, etc., but we part company on chitter-
lings. I don't care what you do to them, they still
taste like 'chitlins'. "

The role of Progressive La-
bor in 'promoting the' riots was
so evident to anyone involved on
the leftwing that even the' Amer-
ican Communist Party was for-
ced to conclude, in a "Worker"
article on/November 15, 1964,
that the Progressive Labor Par-
ty played a "provocative role in
the recent Harlem riots.",
SHarlem Progressive L a b or
Party leader Bill Epton, in his
role as revolutionary, told an
open-air, Progressive Labor Par-
ty rally in Harlem -about two
hours before the riot began:
". .... we will not be fully

completely and totally. Destroy

own choosing and our own lik-
And in that process of smash-
ing this state, we're going to
have to kill a lot of these cops,
a lot of these judges, and we'll
have to go up against their army.
We'll organize our own militia
and our own army ." (Trans-
cription of tape of speech by
Bill Epton made on July 18, 1964,
at 4 p.m. on Lenox Avenue and
115th Street, New York City.)
That Saturday night and dur-
ing the next bloody week, Pro-
d gressive Labor was in the mid-
die of most of the violence. Ep-
ton and the former folksinger,
Bill McAdoo, who headed the
Harlem Defense Council, held
hourly meetings with the rioters.
Discussions took place in the
Progressive Labor office in Har-
lem concerning the making of
Militov cocktails and their utili-

Thousands' of the infamous,
"Wanted for Murtder-Gilligan
the Cop" posters were printed in
the Progressive Labor print shop
and distributed throughout Har-

During the Harlem riot the
Harlem Defense Council and
Progressive Labor printed and
distributed leaflets that read in

Not many people pay too much attention to a bunch of fig-
ures or statistics. When we're reading, we just halfway scan over
the rows of figures. When a speaker goes to spouting statistics
we "tune him out" until he gets on a more interesting subject.
Take the -national budget for instance .. it is in the range
of $200 billion. We are very nonchallant when we merely observe,
"Boy, that's a lot of money o, or wonder when they, are
going to begin to cut expenses."
We all realize that the nation is beset by crime, but when the-
. statistics of this national disgrace are quoted, we promptly forget
them, shake our head and observe, "Wonder what's going to be-
come of us."
When one begins to pay attention to figures and statistics and
drawing parallels, one begins to think.
For instance, last Thursday at Rotary Club we heard a man
from the State Forestry Department boast that after planting pine
trees like mad since 1938, remember, 1938 the State had
planted its two billionth tree just last month. That's one- one-
hundreth of a pine tree in 31 years for every dollar in the national
budget for this year.
Then Monday night, at a Brotherhood meeting at our church,
the Long Avenue Baptist Church, we heard a speaker fiom the
Florida Bureau of Law Enforcement from Tallahassee state that,
organized drime takes $11 billion from Americans every year. That's
over five times the number of pines planted in Florida during the
past 31 years.
And, Florida has a lot of pines, if you haven't noticed.
Hooray for the president oft Notre Dame University. He has/
offered this pronouncement of his "peace formula" for student
rabble rousers on his campus:
"Any member of the faculty or student body who seeks to
disrupt the Notre Dame campus, either violently or other-
wise, will be given 15 minutes to 'meditate'.
"During that 15 minutes he must decide whether'he wants
to obey school rules and behave himself or not ...
"If he does not, he is suspended .. .
"If he persists five minutes more he is expelled ...
"Immediately, when expelled, he becomes a trespasser on
campus and will be summarily arrested!" -
Paul Harvey observed in one of his newspaper columns last
"At Brandeis University, when black students took over
the Administration Building, a Negro mother waded through
the gathering crowd, banged with her umbrella on the barri-
caded door, got in, grabbed her son by the shirt collar, ushered
Shim out and hustled him off..
"While university officials were still holding meetings try-
ing to decide what should be done, she took her boy home and
did it!" -
It doesn't take one one very wise to realize that with the school
people putting their foot down, and parents, backing them up
it won't be long before this insanity on our campuses will be over.A\

The rate of Florida's population
growth out-paced all other large
states last year and placed the
state again in ninth position in
size of population, the Florida
State .Chamber of Commerce re-
ported in its Weekly Business Re-
view released Saturday.
Florida's relative growth shows
up in jts national rank .among the
''states..In 1950 it was in 20th spot
and n1oved up about one step a
year untill 1961 when it achieved
the present ninth position. Offi-
cial forecasts indicate 8th rank
for Florida by-the late 1970's.
The!.Census Bureau's latest es-
timate4 o' Florida's year-round res-
ident population has it pegged at
6,160,000 as of July 1, 1968. This
figure is unpopularly low with esti-
mators in Florida but the Bureau
probably will not budge until the
1970 full census count.
In the meantime, everyone does
his own estimating. One of the
more realistic estimates was made
by economists at the University of
Florida who calculated 6,202,000 at
mid-point last year.
Based on this figure, there was
a net gain of 119,000 new perman-
ent residents in the state during
the 1967-68 year. This figure in-
cluded 34,200 natives of Florida in
excess of deaths, according to rec-
ords of the Bureau of Vital Statis-
tics. The balance of 84,800 came
into Florida from other areas and
remained as residents.
These totals mean a weekly gain
in the state's population of 658
native-born; 1,630 by migration, to-
gether making 2,288 persons a
week gained, year-round, last year.
To further point out the value
of this protection, Gamble cites the
case of a young father killed in an
automobile accident. During his
working life his earnings had av-
eraged $550.00 per month. His wi-
dow and two children will receive
nearly $5,000.00 a year. In slight-
ly over 10 years, the payments will
amount to about $50,000. Gamble
said this type of valuable protec-
tion is just another of the many
important parts of social security.
For further information about
social security, contact your near-
est social security office. The office
for. this area is located at 1135 Har-
rison Avenue, Panama City 32401.

Month of February Turns Out to be
A Busy One for Beach Boy Scout Troop
The month of February has
been an eventful one for Mexico
Beach Troop 303. There was a
campout, a board of review and a
two-day, cross-country, 30 mile hike
for the First Class Scouts.
The first campout, scheduled for
the week end of the 15th and 16th,
was rained out and was held the
22n4 and 23rd at Boy Scout Camp
Millergren. There were various
patrol and inter-patrol games and
on Sunday a cleaning-up program.
The Scouts used Scoutmaster Tate's
trailer and collected' trash that had
been scattered around the camp
and burned in a gully.
At the regular Scout meeting on
Friday, a Board of Review was held
to confirm Scouts passing their
different ranks. At this gathering,
Ronald Biggins, Chuck Stroble and
Ronnie Turner, passed First Class.
The biggest event of the month
was the 30 mile hike, cross coun-
try, to Burgess Creek. This hike
was headed by assistant Scoutmas-
ter Bobby Beatty for the First
Class Scouts only. On Friday, the
Scouts started out for the Scou,
Camp at 4:30 from Beacon Hill.
They arrived at the camp at 8:30
where Mr. Tate and his wife were
waiting with soup and .crackers.
On Saturday hikers left at 8:30 and
Scoutmaster Tate and assistant
Biggins and their families came
out with food. The hikers stayed
overnight and then were picked
