tack to go by pulling in key pas-
ses which made the Shark ground
game even more effective. Smith
hauled in three' passes, one for a
touchdown and Boyette also pull-

It was Boyette who opened the
scoring door for the Sharks tak-

During the last period, the

Charles Smith took a 17 yard

Late in the last period, the Re-

Standard Time, is normally in
the Central Standard Time zone,
but several years ago, the South
section of the county was chang-
ed because of confusion on pas-
senger train schedules. The pas-
senger train service has long
since been discontinued. The es-
tablished time zone border is the
Apalachicola River. Port St. Joe's
Eastern Standard Time status is
a special dispensation.
The Chanber is asking its
members how they feel about try;
ing to get the tirmte zone changed
so that all of Gulf County will be
in the Central zone. This would
mean moving the clocks back an
hour for Port St. Joe people.

Four Port St. Joe Men Are Charged
With Illegal Hunting; One Pleads Guilty
Four Port St. Joe men have
been charged by County Judge
Sam P. Husband of hunting at
night with a headlight. The men
were apprehended about 10 days
ago by Wildlife Officers Carl Cul-
breath of Apalachicola, R. W.
Hilton of Wewahitchka and A.
W. McDonald of Port St. Joe.
Arrested and charged with the
illegal hunting practices were
Don Johnson, Charles Smith, B.
L. Burkett and J. H. Ward. John-
son has since pleaded guilty and
was fined $216.50 and had his
hunting license revoked for 12
months. The other three will ap-
pear before Judge Husband on
plea day in January.
The four men did not have
any game in their possession at
the time of the arrest.
Brenda Wall was chosen as Homecoming Queen in half-time
ceremonies, at the football game Friday night. One would gather
by her expression that she was displeased with the choice, but she
really wasn't. Brenda's escort is Greg Knox.

Port St. Joe's band received
"Superior" ratings from all four
of the judges who praised the
appearance, playing ability and
marching technique of the group.
Out of the 14 grades cast for
the band's presentation, all were
"A's" but four. The four were
two "B's" and two "B" plus.
This year's judging standards
were higher than those of last
year, in which the local band
received an "Excellent" rating.

Hard Knocking Gets It Done
After settling for a co-championship last year
in the Gulf Coast Conference, the Sharks took
the 1969 championship Friday night, defeating the
Wakulla County "Rebels", 22-0. The victory came
as the result of hard-nosed defense, such as the
sure tackle being put on a Wakulla runner by
Kloskia Lowery and Archie Shackleford and the
hard running of halfback Dennis Atchison, right.

Band Earns Plaudits
It looks like Port St. Joe High School might,just pick
up the marbles this year in superlatives to be had by the
It is evident to everybody that the football team, with
a perfect record and only one game to go; with the Gulf
Coast Conference championship tucked neatly under its
belt, is a real success this year, and may even get into
the state play-offs. Everybody is justifiably proud of the
football team already,, even though it has a way to go to
earn every honor available.
Attention must now be diverted to Port St. Joe's fine
band, which has been superb in its appearances this year
under the direction of Jim Clark in his first year in Port
Everybody in Port St. Joe knows that the band has
come to the front this year with a very fine organization
and puts on an enjoyable show.
Just to prove that we weren't prejudiced here in Port
St. Joe about our own, the band went to Tallahassee Satur-
day to enter the District marching contest and came out
with a "Superior" rating the' highest rating offered by
the Bandmaster's Association, which does the judging.
So now, the band has proved to us that we don't just
think they're good they are good!
The "Superior" rating wasn't just a "get by" rating
either. The judges wrote down such comments as "a fine
looking group", "shows evidence of good teaching", "a
fine exhibition of marching' and playing. It is refreshing
to watch and hear a band that really marches and plays.
The band is well drilledV', "Good military style, excellent
Port St. Joe's band was -one of six out of 20 compet-
ing bands that earned the "Superior" rating. Chattahoo-
chee and Marianna High were the only other schools out-
side of Tallahassee's big high schools to earn the "Super-
ior" rating. This puts Port St. Joe in some pretty good
company, as these schools regularly earn their "Superiors".
Port St. Joe now has to earn a "Superior" in concert at
the March contest in order to earn the opportunity to go
to the State Festival. But, with the raves received on
their playing Saturday, the band should, go on to be a
number one organization state-wide, thus holding up the
popular chant now heard at every school event: "We're
Sufficient time has now passed for a more than cur-
sory look at the first of what is supposed to be a series of
"Moratorium Days". And the results have something to
say about the accuracy of television news reporting. Tele-
vision stations in many areas went on the air at the
conclusion of "Moratorium Day" with what were supposed
to be "in depth" views of the results. But as is often the
case with the rush for the scoop on the boob tube, the
instant experts were not as accurate as the men who sat
back and reflected on the results very carefully.
Some TV newscasters reported what was supposed to
be "vast numbers" of demonstrators. But it turned out
that the numbers were not as high as the promoters. ex-.
pected and the numbers dwindled even more for the-second
demonstration the other day. Pre-demonstration predic-
tions ran as high as a million. Estimates on the night of
the broadcasts ran as high as half a million. Later, and
more thoughtful, estimates were scaled down to a possible
high of 250,000 demonstrators from coast to coast. This
may or may not be accurate. Some still say it was the
greatest number of' dissidents ever involved in a protest.
But let's put the figures in perspective. Even if we were
to concede a figure of half a million persons, this would
be approximately one-quarter of one percent of the popu-
lation of the United States. Or to put it another way,
roughly 199.5 million did NOT take part. This despite

the vast publicity given over modern communications
media, coupled with the growth in affluence that permits
our citizens the leisure time away from work, the permis-
siveness of some colleges which enroll "students" who
don't study; and the ease of travel that is available to
mobilize such numbers. Looking at the "Moratorium"
in this light gives it a less spectacular image. )
Other facts highlight the failure of the militant, left-
leaning minority to bring out-of-proportion influence to
bear on the not-so-silent majority. Note: The large major-
ity of the members of congress who opposed the Morator-
ium as against the minority who supported it. Note: The
large numbers of cars driving along the highways with
their headlights turned on in support of the President's
efforts to win the peace. Note: The flags that were
flown at full staff over all New York City police stations
in defiance of the half-mast declaration of Mayor Lindsey.
Note: The recruitment boards that recorded an increase
in enlistees as a counter protest. Public opinion polls
- taken after the Moratorium show an increase in support
of the President's foreign policy. Mail at the White House
ran heavily in favor of Vice President Agnew's "tough"
speech. TV "in depth reporting" notwithstanding, the
"silent majority" of Americans did speak that day, elo-
quently, and it is apparent that the President was listening

not be solved overnight. Any

It's getting so you don't have to look too awful hard to find
out which politicians are running and which ones aren't. One of the
"'runningest" politicians right now just has to be Attorney General
Earl Faircloth, making his bid for Governor. Faircloth has that
"running" look and action of talking out of both sides of his
mouth at once. Faircloth is making'things real easy though, doing
the talking out of both sides of his mouth all on the same day. The
papers are making it real easy to compare notes on him too. The
other day Faircloth made the news twice on the same page. In one
column he was chiding Governor Claude Kirk, claiming the Gover-
nor wouldn't release enough money for him (Faircloth) to really
get in the fight against the Mafia down Miami way. In an adjoin-
ing column was a story stating that Faircloth was refusing to help
keep two confessed killers (Pitts and Lee) behind bars.
Only one adjective could adequately describe the weather at
the football game Friday night COLD!
Everybody was huddling up, standing behind buildings to break
the cutting wind, dancing up and down and sitting in cars with
the heaters going waiting for the game to start. We crawled in the"
police car parked beside the gate and kept warm by the car heater.
We thought we had a first class news story when the radio
came to life and blared that "the alarm at the Florida First National
Bank just sounded in the telephone office Sheriff and patrol-
men please investigate".
"What's this", we thought, "a bank robbery right here in Port
Pretty soon Patrolman 'Red' Graves radioed back, "It was just
somebody in the bank that set off the alarm."
A few seconds later Deputy Sheriff H. T. "Sonny" Dean chim-
ed in over his radio, "They were the right people though!" Dean
of course meant it was authorized people inside the bank.
Somebody opened the wrong drawer.
The cold weather was a welcome event, even though it was
sort of uncomfortable while watching the Sharks clobber the Wa-
kulla "Rebels". It was also rough on the hunters who camped put
Friday night, waiting for the crack of dawn Saturday.
One good thing the cold weather brought was the first sprout-
ing of Christmas trees in the City. Several business houses have
theirs up and the holiday season is beginning to peek its head up
all over. When you stop to look at the calendar and see that the
annual Christmas parade is only two weeks away, it's time 'to get

Fire Damages Home
Of Frank Hannons
Fire broke out in the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hannon at
about 8:00 a.m. Saturday morn-
ing, causing considerable dam-
age to the utility area and the
carport. Also damaged were the
Hannon's two automobiles which
were parked in the carport when
the fire broke out.
The fire, which apparently was
caused from a central heat fur-
nace, located in the utility area,
was noticed by a passing motor-
ist who stopped and reported it
to the next door neighbors, Mr.
and Mrs. Bob Fox. Fox turned in
the fire alarm and went over to
arouse the Hannons.
The fire gutted the utility area
and did heavy damage to the
ceiling in the carport.
Two brush fires during the
past week also called on the Port
St. Joe volunteer fire department.
The fires occurred Saturday
night at 9:00 p.m. and Sunday
evening at 7:30 p.m. Both were
located on Avenue "A".
Reid Will be Closed December 6
In a short session Monday
night, the Port St. Joe City Com-

The street will be closed to
all traffic from 7:00 a.m. to
11.00 a.m. The purpose is to keep
the street clear to allow for a
wider parade route.
Higdon Swatts, chairman of the
parade this year asked for the
move because he is anticipating
several entries for the event
which will need more room tp
maneuver. A second purpose is
to remove the hazard of small
children darting out from behind
parked cars into the path of a
vehicle during the parade.
