Knox. The local "bull fighters"' parried, picked and punched away at at pawing "Wild Bull" in Jacksonville's Colliseum
.until they brought the bounding "Bulls" to their knees for the final victory lunge. The prize wasn't a "Bull's" ear, but
the state basketball class 'B' championship. .
S"The Sharks didn't get by-unscathed however, as the."Bulls" badly nicked the Sharks, putting Lewis and Morgat
out of the game for a long period, in foul'trouble. The wounded Sharks, like their -namesake of the sea, reacted -to thei
wounds by fighting harder to overcome their adversary.

It was close, but we're number one!
Port St. Joe's Sharks rose to the occasion in Jackson-
ville Saturday afternoon, against a big, rough, strong team
from Howard. of Ocala, very aptly named the "Wild
Bulls". The Howard team was big, heavy, fast and ag-
.gressive. They probably, knocked the Port St. Joe team
around as much as any team they have met this year, but
determination, training, condition, and surprise play every
once in a while spelled victory for the Sharks.
With the rebounding and shooting of Charlie Lewis
all but snuffed out by foul trouble and the ball handling
abilities of Larry Morgan sitting on the bench with four
fouls' beside his name, it looked like a lost cause for the
'Sharks. But the Shark reserves pulled up some extra
adrenalin from their shoe soles, had just enough effect to
keep the Howard 'Wild Bulls" off balance and allowed
David Langston, Buddy Boyette and John Ford to do part
of "their thing" on the basketball court and pull the game
Iut of what looked like sure defeat.
Buddy Boyette was completely out-manned under
the basket by the big Bufls, but he still snatched some
rebounds and got in some fine shots to balance the Shark
attack in spite of tremiendous odds. John Ford held down
his side of the court well enough to allow big gun D
Langston to play a superb game, drawing attention
every sports writer in the Jacksonville Cdlliseum.
Langston was the big gun, there is no denying
fact. But Langston will be the first to tell you that it
a team effort that whipped the Wild Bulls and bro
home the state basketball trophy for the first time in
tory. Like the Regional victory over Baker,'it was a.
effort that got the job done.
One has but to recall about three months and rer
ber the Sharks taking co-champions in the Gulf Coast
ference with one of the best football records in sei
years. Add to the past two victories the fact that
St. Joe has excellent opportunity to win Conference
ors in baseball this season, and it can't help but make

should welcome this feeling with open arms.
As long as we can keep this feeling alive in our sc
we'll be number one ... in everything.
We think Washington High School deserves credit for
their showing in the tournament. They deserve credit
for their entire season which saw the Tigers go undefeated
for the entire year, only to meet their first defeat in the
final game of the State Class C tournament.
'Watching the tournament, one could easily see why
they were so successful during the regular season -
they never gave up.
Washington had the slimmest of leads over a good
Greensboro team in the waning seconds of the game. Their
big rebounders, James McGee and George Williams, fouled
A Magazine Publishers Association advertisement ap-
pearing in Farm Journal leads off with the observation,
"The Russians have good athletes because they compete
and dull clothes because they don't". The rest of the ad-
vertising message deals with the advantages to consum-
sumers of. the competitive, free choice, free market econ-
omy in the United States-an economy that is in sharp
contrast to ,the noncompetitive, state-directed economy
of the Soviet Union.
We most assuredly do not have to look far to see the
advantages of the competitive U. S.-system of' production
and distribution. Nowhere is this more evident than in
the great retail institutions that during the last century
have become household words--merchandising institutions
that 'have grown and prospered under the spur of com,-
06tioh. These institutions constitute the foundation of
mass-retail distribution in the United States--high volume
movement of goods at minimum prices. This merchandis-

But the successful merchandiser, large or small, chain
or independent, will prosper only so long as he continues
to win public adeptance in the marketplace.' One of the'
.nation's largest retail variety stores, whose name is as
familiar to Americans as the Statue of Liberty, is a far
different operation today than even ten years ago, and it
recently celebrated its 90th Anniversary. Ten' years ago,
it was still operating its chain of variety stores.. Today,
it has also become the world's largest purveyor of food,
prepared and served on the premises, through 2,000 fobd
service installations. It has branched into shoes and
sportswear. Somd 90 of its stores carry everything from

Any sane, thoughtful person
must admit our effort, no matter

failed miserably. The answer io
clear, We are, less happy, less

history. We enjoy greater, pros-
perity, less unemployment, great-
er opportunity for the individual
than ever before. It is evident
that deficit spending has accom-

steadily increased them.

day. Our'faith in the old tried
and true values that nade our
country great have'gone.with the
wind. The old courage and fight-
ing spirit, the independence of
the individual, the desire to ad-
yance. by our own. effort, seem
to have disappeared.
Respect and confidence in our
nation throughout the world has
deteriorated. The- value of the
American dollar is questioned, in
spite of the billions we have

Parental control of our chil-
dren has broken down. Author-
ity, discipline and personal re-
sponsibility have become, dirty
words. The home, the church and

any control over our youth.
This is not all the fault of
government. The responsibility
rests equally on parents, our ed--.
ucational system and our church-
es. If our' homes are broken if
our adults' display loose morals:
and our churches themselves are
divided, what can we expect? We
have become a nation of liars,
cheaters and crooks. We think
nothing of shop-lifting. We in-
dulge in drunkenness and hate.
'We flaunt the law when it ap-

-Monday, March 17, St. Patrick's Day, marked the 31st anniver-
sary of the big Paper Company which has been the life-blood of
our City ever since it started operations in 1938. We hope the
Company has many, many more birthdays in the years to, come, and
that they will all be happy.
When we realized that St. Patrick's Day was the anniversary
of the mill, like a brick-bat it hit upon our. thick brain that Mr.
Ball, the head of it all, wears a Shamrock on his tie all theiTehe.
We couldn't' help but wonder if the opening of the mill was
regulated by Mr. Ball's affinity for the "green" -or if he wears
the Shamrock because that is the day it all started?

The-talk of the town is the feat of the Sharks bringing home
the state basketball trophy for first place position. Everywhere
you go, people are talking about the superb way the team played-
and especially of the victory which they didn't quite believe could
be won. "Port St. Joe always chokes up in a tournament", some
said. "We have had good teams enter tournaments before, only
to come apart when the chips were down", others said. Everybody
was proud of the team for making it to state, but very few really
believed they could bring home the whole ball of wax. .
The radio announcer recognized the 200 to 300 Port St. Joe
fans present in Jacksonville for Friday's games. When. we got
there Saturday, we were fearful for the town. We didn't know if
there was enough people at home to hold things down. But when
we got back, it was still here.
The entire Port St. Joe cheering section (which was plentiful)
cheered their hearts out for both 'the Washington Tigers and the t
Port St. Joe.Sharks. Some of the fans were Negro and some were
white, but when the whistles blew, they were all from Port St. Joe.
Representative Joe Chapman, speaking to the Lions Club Mon-
day noted that the State of Florida was seeking to make St. Joseph
Bay one of 29 aquatic preserves throughout the'state because the
plan would preserve the natural fish' hatchery in the Soitth end
of the Bay and would perpetuate the esthetic element along St.
Joseph Peninsula where the State Park is located.
Looking at the esthetic values in the Park vicinity, one can
hardly see the need for any preserve, to guarantee preservation of
the shoreline in its natural state. The fact tat so much shoreline
is included in the boundaries: of the Park will guarantee that it
will remain in its natural state. The fact that the Park is there win
maintain that portion of the Bay and the Gulf as it is now.
As for the fish hatchery values in the South, end of the Bay,
people in this area are cognizant of the fact that the fishing indus-.
try adds mTany dollars to our economy. We are not going to will-
fully cutt off that source of revenue. Besides thai, there are now
laws on the book which wil 'sufficiently protect that hatchery.
The remainder of the Bay can and should be exploited by the'
City and County. It is our main asset. Waterfront property and
its wise use is what has made Florida grow. We think that Gulf
County should,not be penalized of the chance to grow by putting
all of our waterfront property off limits to exploitation and wise
use. We still remember the new definition to conservation given
by a, Floridf forester recently, "Conservation is the wise USE of "
our attributes, not putting them on a shelf just to look at."

Your Trees Need Food Too
In spring tiees are like flickled
young ladies both take on an-
But trees are different because
they can't become engaged, quarrel
and .return their rings.
However, trees can become un-
happy and sigh if they can't get
food to sustain their annual growth
rings. So to keep trees engaged in
growing rings, feed them.
Like humans, trees need a hearty
breakfast after a long winter nap.
Feeding trees is simple. Start the
job with'a crowbar or a length of
% inch pipe.
For trees with trunks less than
six inches in diameter, punch holes
under the entire canopy 12 inches
deep at 18-inch intervals and apply
./, three pounds of a garden fertilizer
in the holes. Two applications per
year are- recommended. One now
and another in -the fall.
For frees larger than six inches
'. atunk diameter apply five
pounds per tree.
For azaleas, camellias, crotons,
hibiscus, gardeilus, shrubs, hedges
and other ornamental plants, make
four applications per year. Apply
one to one and one-half pounds of
fertilizer to 100 square feet of
planting per application in late
spring, summer, winter 'and early
spring. The late spring application
i. due now. Water plants, spread
the plant nutrients, and then
water the plant food materials in.
Azaleas and camellias need spec-
ial acid type fertilizer, so'be sure
-to feed them the right formula or
they may become fertilizer sick.
Annuals and perennials need
three applications of ope to one
and one-half pounds of 6-6-6 ferti-

Mexico Beach Scouts and Cubs
Conduct Clean-Up Campaign On Beach
Cub Scouts from Mexico Beach
Pack 307 and Scouts from Troop
303 were entertained with a wei-
ner roast at Wayside Park on
Mexico Beach after their day's
work in a clean-up campaign in
compliance with national "Clean-
Up, Paint-Up,. Fix-Up" month.
The Scouts put in a full day's
work along Highway 98 and on
the beaches where they collected
nine loads of litter and hauled
it to the dump. They moved gar-
bage cans away from the high-
way and streets to the back side
of the lots. There were a few
which would require reconstruc-
tion that the Scouts could not
move, but it is the belief that the
owners will have them moved.
Mexico Beach residents gave
a special thanks to leaders

Another interesting bit of infor-

Along with this is the fact that the

in spite of this tremendous increase

fact, that generation facilities are
expected to be doubled in the next
10 years, it is still not enough.

A forest fire is a savage, terrify-
ing thing as it burns out of control.
It destroys everything in its path --,-'
trees, buildings, wildlife, livestock,
and sometimes human beings.
Fortunately, most forest fires are
controlled before they run wild,
but, they sometimes rage out of
control for days or weeks. The job
of, the Florida Forest Service ran-
ger is to stop them. The good ran
ger, and the alert citizen, stop them
before they start. Always remem-
ber that you are helping to protect
a multimillion dollar industry in
the State of Florida.
The forest products industry is
the state's second largest, topped
only by one other industry, and
furnishes jobs and income to many
thousands. of people.

As conservation becomes a more
important topic nowadays with in-
creasing dangers in air and water
pollution, the forester finds he has
more than a casual interest.
Healthy forests are a key not
merely to lumber, pulp and paper
production -- but to conservation
The forest and wood products in-
dustry in Florida today ranks se-
cond only to tourism, in annual
dollar value. Actually forest in-
dustry within the Sunshin-e State
is now the largest single industry
converting a natural resource.
While tree farmers in Florida
note a near 200 per cent ine'ease in
dollar return from their trees dur-
ing the past 20 years, it is estimat-
ed the demand for forest raw ma-
terials will again double within the.
next two decades.
With some 4 million cords of tim-
ber now removed from Florida for-
ests annually, reforestation -
planting-of more seedling trees -
must not be relaxed. The 100 mil-
lion new trees planted yearly' in
Florida are but a step toward three
