SANTA CLAUS will pay his annual visit to Port St. Joe Saturday
morning. Santa will be ushered into, the City by a giant parade which
will begin at 10:00| A.M. and will contain some 70 units, according to
Higdon Swatts, who is in charge of the parade. The parade is a project
of the Port St. Joel Jaycees and is also sponsored by the Port St. Joe
Many local clubs' and organizations will compete for cash prizes
in the parade float competition, which has resulted in bigger and better
floats each year since the parade was initiated. Cash prizes of $100.00,
$50.00 and $25.000 are being offered for the top three floats.
Due to the number and size of the floats and exhibits being en-
tered in this year's parade, Reid Avenue will be kept free of cars on
Saturday morning to allow for more room to maneuver
and to reduce the danger of children running out from be-
hind parked cars,. The street will be blocked off at 7:30
A.M. Saturday morning and no traffic allowed to enter.
FOUR 'BIG BANDS
Four bands will participate in the parade this year.
Along with Port St. Joe's Washington and Port St. Joe
i High School bands will be groups from Apalachicola and
Wewahitchka. The bands will be assisted by the Shark-
ettes and the Junior,Majorettes..
Beauty, aside from the floats, will not be neglected
I either. Port St. Joe's Junior Miss, Laura Guilford and
Miss St. Joe Hgih, Brenda Wall, will play large parts in
the giant parade.
Color guards have been provided by the U. S. Coast
Guard and Tyndall Air Force Base. In addition, the Tyn-
dall group is entering a big Air Force float to follow behind
their color guard.
Two of the most outstanding events from out of
town which will be in the parade are the Panamedics and
the Saddlin' Seminoles. The Panamedics are a group of
Shriners with a: comic motorcycle riding routine. The Sad-
dlin' Seminoles of Wewahitchka need no introduction any-
where they go in Florida.
Swatts said he was very pleased with the response
to the parade this year. "We have more floats, more mer-
chants entering, and more interesting events than usual",
-: he said. "This parade should last for at least an hour and
maybe even longer". But even with the big line-up of
---- floats and events for Saturday morning, Swatts said those
who wish to enter may still do so if they get in touch with
him immediately. He can be reached at 229-5000 during
the day and 229-6300 at night.
Everyone is urged to be on hand from the time
area law enforcement cars lead out up Reid Avenue until
Santa Claus makes his grand entrance at the rear of the
parade on one of Port St. Joe's fire trucks.

To Receive Free
The winners of the three Hi-
Mom calls sponsored by Local
3171 of the Communications
Workers of America were chosen
Wednesday of last week in a
drawing at The Star office.
Mayor Frank Pate picked the
names of the winners of the free
calls to loved ones in the military
overseas from a box, in the cer-
emonies also attended by Dorothy
White, president of CWA Local
3171 in Port St. Joe.
Winners of the free tele-
phone calls were: Mrs. James
C. Graves, 515 Third Street;
Mrs. Colin Tharpe of Port St.
Joe and Mrs. Jess F. Mamoran
of White City.
In each case, winners of the
free calls will be asked to con-
tact their sons, daughters, hus-
bands or other loved ones and
to suggest that they place the
call home on a "collect" basis.
"We do it this way," Mrs.
White said, "because we've found
it is much easier for a member
of the family in the United States
to get to a telephone than it is
for a fighting man or woman
overseas to answer a telephone."

With the Sharks still in the
middle of football, having earned
a shot at the state championship,
the basketball program has come
in for some revision, according

to December 20. The game ori-
ginally scheduled for Saturday
night will be played on February
The Sharks will open their

of Drain Problem
Max W. Kilbourn, the County's
engineer consultant, told the

night that the county faced ser-

Fletcher Capps, 41
Funeral services were held yes-

from the First Baptist Church of
Highland View for Fletcher "Jun-
ior" Capps, age 41. Services were
conducted by Rev. William N.
Stephens, pastor of the church.
Interment followed in the fam-
ily plot of Holly Hill Cemetery.
Capps passed away suddenly
Monday afternoon. He was a res-
ident of Highland View, a mem-
ber of the First Baptist Church
of Highland View. He had been
a long time employee of St. Joe
He is survived by his widow,
Mrs. Ida Belle Capps of Highland
View; three sons, Donald, Fred-
die and Robert Capps, all of
Highland View; his mother, Mrs.
Alice Capps of Kinard; one bro-
ther, Winston Capps of Kinard.
Serving as pallbearers at the
services were Noah D. Allen,
John Newsome, Jim Harrison,
Kemp Kennedy, Howard Rogers
and Archie Floyd.
Comforter Funeral Home was
in charge of arrangements.
North Gulf County are clearing
large tracts of land for farming
and are constructing large drain
ditches to carry water off the
land. The water is being dumped
into roadside ditches, which, ac-
cording to Kilbourn, will create
a problem of carrying the water
to its final dumping places in
rivers and streams.
"The drain system is barely ad-
equate now", Kilbourn said, "and
all of this extra water is going
to add to-your problems".
Kilbourn said the land develop-
ers are willing to help the coun-
ty to provide adequate drainage
in this area., Chairman Leo Ken-
nedy asked Kilbourn to set up a
meeting with the developers to
work up an effective program.
Oak Grove Water
Final reports were heard from
Steve Nations, representing Flor-
ida Engineering Associates last
Tuesday night in regard to pre-
paration to filing for federal help
in construction of the Oak Grove
water and sewer system,
A final report had been pre-
sented at the previous meeting,
but had tentatively included
Ward Ridge in the program. The
final presentation last Tuesday
excluded Ward Ridge.
Before giving the final go-
ahead on the federal fund appli-
cation, the Board examined the
program and plans to see if it
coincided with an over-all county
water and sewer plan worked up
in 1967. It was found that the
plans were compatible with the
over-all county outline and the
approval was given to go ahead
and file for federal assistance.
Florida Engineers is filing the
request for federal funds.

Why Is U. S. Always 'Patsy'?
.The big story last week was the allegations that a
U. S. fighting unit in South Vietnam completely wiped out
a Vietnamese village including all the women and children.
The stories published told of the unit being fired on as
they approached the village-already a suspected Viet-
Cong stronghold-and that after they occupied the vil-
lage, orders were passed out to kill everybody.
Such a crime, if it was perpetrated as outlined, is
one that should draw the criticism of the world, the pun-
ishment from home and should be written as an example
not to be followed in the future. You just don't expect
things like this out of Ameridans.
This one incident has brought the attention of the
world press justly so but we still can't keep from
repeating the question asked by columnist John Chamber-'
lain last week when he entitled one of his columns, "Why
Must U. S. Always Be A Patsy?"
The Viet Cong wipe out villages, families, and gov-
ernment officials every day and get nothing more than
second, third or fourth page coverage of the matter. The,
massacres of Hue, in which thousands were killed in cold
blood by the North Vietnamese has been accurately doc-
umented for the cold blooded murder that it was, and
scarcely a ripple of horror was heard and not much
was forthcoming from the U. S. either. Why must the
U. S. always be a patsy?
Every day the Viet Cong kill entire families because
a member has refused to serve with them, or has joined
the government forces. Public officials are killed for
being loyal to the South Vietnamese government. Whole
villages are wiped out, because the Viet Cong are refused
food, or men, or just because they felt like it,
This isn't excusing the serious nature of the alleged
crime charged to America's fighting men, :but it does
seem that the same abhorrence could be engendered when
the Cong commit such crimes. Some little semblance of
objection should be raised concerning the barbarism of
the enemy. If not, there are many who will naturally con-
sider the Cong as the "boys in the white hats" but
maybe that's what many want the world to think.
But, back to us. Why does the U. S. always become
the patsy? Because throughout the world, it is common
knowledge that the people of the United States don't act
like this as a rule. When civilized people commit crimes
it is looked on unbelievingly. This little realization might
be a good thought for us to remember here at home, too.
It's Christmas parade time, Christmas shopping time
and very near Christmas time itself. Looking at the cal-
endar, we see three more issues of this paper to be printed
and it will be Christmas three weeks from today.
With that it's time for our annual trade at home
message., Our affinity toward trading at home has be--
come so well known that people begin to make excuses
to us when they buy anything out of town that they
could get right here.
We had a fella tell us the other day, "I wasn't in
agreement with your 'trade at home' theme in the past,
but I want you to know I have changed my mind .. I
believe in trading at home now". What changed his mind
was a repair bill. This particular person had purchased
an electrical appliance out of town an appliance he
could buy, along with maintenance service, from 10 local,
merchants. The machine broke down with a simple ail-
ment. The owner diagnosed the very simple problem, call-
ed the people he made the purchase from and was, stuck
for a $20.00 repair bill. He asked about town and found
he could get the same repair made by local merchants on
their machines for a high cost of $8.00. Other charges
were even lower for the same repair.
We're not "commercializing" Christmas by asking
that you trade at home. We are asking that you re-
member the "good will toward men" theme of Christmas
time, and consider your friends, your neighbors' your
local merchants. Go out of town to shop. Take that
trip and get out of town, for a while. Enjoy yourself. Be
relaxed and refreshed with a short drive. Then come back
to Port St. Joe refreshed and relaxed and do your pur-
chasing right here. You'll save money and boost your
community and its progress all at the same time.

The reason why Vice-President Spiro Agnew low-

all to see Sunday night.
OCBS had billed the "Simon and Garfunkle Special"
for a week or two beforehand, leading one to believe that
he would see a program of entertainment and music.
The program was one long blast at the Government,

to be one of the shallowest "editorials" we have ever seen.

Mr. Agnew knew full well what he was shooting at.
Nobody has any gripe with the networks letting
forth with an editorial now and then, but let's label it so.
When one reads a newspaper, an editorial or a columnist's
expressed opinion is listed as such arid is found on
the editorial page. News is on other pages. Entertain-
ment is on other pages. But not so with television. The
editorial is everywhere. Let the networks express their
opinion, but please label it properly.

Christmas Parade Time
.It isn't often one can legitimately find grounds to chase off
a preacher but "meddling" is close to reason enough for
Our preacher, J. C. Odum, is treading on thin ice after his Thanks-
giving message on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. He started
meddling in a most dangerous sort of way. He started off with
his message innocent enough. He was telling how dangerous the
holiday season was for folks. This was alright, and I agreed
with him. The roads are dangerous, the weather is tricky and it
was alright with me if he pounded against holiday drinking if he
wanted to. I don't drink, so this doesn't bother me.
But, as he warmed to the subject, he began to stomp on the
dangers of over eating during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holi-
days and the strain it puts on one's heart what with added fat, obe-
siety, chloesterol, etc.
I remember back when Preacher Odum had' his little "pot"
just like the rest of us. He has been known to set down at a
meal and over eat really! But now, he has gall bladder trou-
ble and is on a water and toothpick diet, so all of a sudden, "over
eating becomes dangerous".
If this isn't meddling, what is? And meddling is what gets
You're going'to have give up that urge to "live like a King". '
If what we read is true, "living like a King" is getting to be the
worst kind of living. According to the reports in the paper, the
Queen of England and her husband are all but on welfare. The
$1.4 million a year allowance given them by England just won't
go around any more.
That's sad, too. If the Queen of England can't "make it", how
can we be expected to?
Makes me want to write my Congressman and ask him to
filibuster for more foreign aid for Merry Old England.
We can't have the Queen running around in last week's out-
fit, just to save money.
The "snowbirds" have hit town. A sure sign of winter not being
very far behind.
The "snowbirds" have their advertising gimmicks to sell mer-
chants, which they are expected to pay for as advertising in the
local newspaper and drum up all amounts of business. The "snow-
birds" are getting thinner, however, because the merchants of to-
day are learning that these gimmicks make money only for the
"snowbird". Usually their ideas aren't worth a tinker.
We made over 700 friends last week. Last week's issue car-
ried the story, "Beginning Tuesday, December 2, the school day will
be 10 minutes for students of Port St.. Joe High School". Of course,
we made about 30 teachers unhappy while we were earning those
700 friends, but that's a good average lose 30 and gain 700.
Of course the story should have read, "Beginning Tuesday, De-
cember 2, the school day will be SHORTENED 10 minutes for stu-
dents of Port St. Joe High School ..."
That's what happens when the work week gets SHORTENED
and one tries to do three days work in the period of a day and a
half errors are made.

Jeanne Crain's Molasses Taffy Recipe
Jeanne Crain, the glamorous film star, is the mother of seven
children. One of her favorite family activities is the making and
pulling of delicious molasses taffy. Made with nutritious Brer
Rabbit light molasses, molasses taffy is easy to cook and fun to
pull. It's a project which the whole family can enjoy together.
Why not have a taffy pull tonight? Here's Jeanne Crain's own
1% cups sugar 1 cup heavy cream
1 cup Brer Rabbit gold label 2 tablespoons butter
molasses % teaspoon baking soda
% teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon mint extract
Combine sugar, molasses, salt and cream in skillet; stirring,
"bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling until
anmixture reaches 265* F. on a candy thermometer or until a small
amount forms a firm ball when dropped in cold water (about 14
minutes). Remove from heat; add butter and sprinkle with bak-
ing soda and mint extract, stirring through. Pour onto large but-
tered platter. Cool five minutes; turn edges of taffy into center.
Continue cooling 15 minutes longer or until cool enough to han-
dle. To pull, grease hands with butter. Cut taffy into 4 pieces,
roll into balls. Stretch, fold back and squeeze taffy into a lump.
Repeat pulling, folding and squeezing until taffy turns from
"brown to a golden-amber color. Pull taffy into long strips and cut
-with scissors into small pieces. Wrap each piece in waxed paper
or cellophane wrap; tie ends with colored yarn if desired. Store
in closed tin. Makes about 60 pieces.
