The Port St. Joe Jaycees are
now in the process of preparing
for their annual "Christmas
Shopping Spree" for the under-
priviledged children. The Jay-,
cees no longer collect toys for
repair but instead they. give each
child approximately $10.00 each
and take them on a shopping tour
and let the kids purchase what-
ever they want. The kids are also
given a party.
Anyone wanting to sponsor a
child or children may do so by
contacting any Jaycee or mailing
contributions to the Jaycees, P.
0. Box 158, City. To sponsor a
child costs $10.00.
The question of changing the
Port St. Joe area to Central Stan-
dard Time was brought up at a
November meeting of the Cham-
ber's board of directors.
The board has publicized the
request during the past month
and asked for the teelig of the
public. The public said "no'" em-
phatically last Thursday.

Second Look Taken Before
Placing Radio Base Station
After previously coming to an
agreement to put the base station
for a new radio installation here
in Port St. Joe, the County Com-
mission has now had second
thoughts; about the matter and
have decided to take another look
at the situation.
In a meeting about a month
ago the Board 'purchased a base
station and. mobile units to go
in vehicles .operated by the Coun-
ty's Road and Mosquito Control
Departments. The thinking then
was to locate the base station
in the Courthouse and let the
system double for ,use by Civil
Defense in an emergency.
Now, thoughts have come up
that CD and the Sheriff's.Depart-
ment already operate radio sys-
tems in this end of the county
and should a blow be bad enough
to blow down the base station
tower, all communications would
be gone. Location of the new
base station in Wewahitchka
would give an auxiliary base sta-
tion for these operations.
Too, the operator at the Road
Department office in Wewahitch-
ka would be more familiar with
road operations, location of
equipment and location of var-
ious roads throughout the coun-
ty and would be more valuable
operating the station than would
an operator at this end less fa-
miliar with county roads.
The matter has been tabled, un-
decided, until more thought can
be given to it.

Judged the Winning Floats In Port St. Joe Christmas Parade
Remembering the birthday of the Saviour was the predominant theme
of floats entered in Port St. Joe's annual Christmas Parade Saturday morning.
These three floats,, all depicting'the religious motif, were the selections of
the panel of judges as best depicting the "Spirit of Christmas". Receiving
first place in the float judging was the entry of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
The float featured a church and urged that Christ be kept in Christmas. Re-
ceviing the first prize check from Jaycee President Robert Montgomery is
Mrs. Joe Blan. Second place winner was the float entered by the Pentecos-
tal Holiness Church children who used the theme, "Serving Christ All Year".
Mrs. Avery Howell receives the second prize check from Montgomery. Third
prize float was entered by the Rotary Club using the theme, "God and Coun-
try". Cecil Curry accepted the third prize for the Club. -Star photo

The Sharks failed to bring home all the apples this
year, but the accomplishments they did manage have
made everybody in Port St. Joe and Gulf County proud
of them. When you place those 10 big wins this past sea-
son alongside the 10 big losses of two years ago, progress
and determination is very evident.
The Sharks have .learned to cooperate, play together
and function as a team. They have also made the name
of Port St. Joe known throughout the State of Florida as
they earned the reputation of being the fourth ranked
football team in the entire State in the Class B classifica-
tion during their regular season,
Naturally everybody -- including every man on the
team is disappointed that the Sharks are not now in
contention for the State Championship, but. their accom-
plishments are so. great compared to just two years ago,
that one can confidently say, "wait til next year".
While it was a long ride home from Baker last Fri-
day night, and the hour of getting to bed was in the wee
hours of the morning, it was worth it all to witness the
fact that the Sharks never gave up even though the odds
were insurmountable. This a valuable lesson and trait
among those young men.
It was painfully evident in the last quarter of Friday
night's game that the Sharks could not pull this one out
of the fire. They were on their way to defeat for the first
time this year. But not a one gave up. They still hit just
as hard as thei comparatively diminutive size would allow;
they still tried just as hard to score; they still played
like the game had just begun and their chance was still
there to win.
Though they will not now be number one in the State,
their effort, their dedication and their pursuit of full
success all this season has made them definitely number
one in this neck of the woods and even that takes in a
lot of territory.
Too many people do a lot of work in our city and
never get any praise or recognition for it.
One such person is Higdon Swatts.
Higdon is the quiet sort. He never says much. You
hardly even know he is around. But for the last four '
years, Higdon has almost single-handedly guided the Port
St. Joe Christmas parade into a huge success.
Higdon has had some. good ideas. He hasn't failed
to go after the big events. Most of them don't come, but
he still tries and each year manages to capture a major
attraction to the parade, which helps to make it a fine
attraction and something to be anticipated.
It's a man-size job to line up the Christmas parade
each year. The correspondence, telephone calls, personal
At least one question has been definitely settled for
Port St. Joe. The citizens of this area wish to remain on
Eastern Standard Time.
tWhile the stated desires to remain on EST were nu-
merous, the written statements were also indicative of the
desires of the people, especially in view of the fact no sides
were drawn, no organized efforts put forth on either side
of the question. Over 280 people signed statements to
the Tact that they desired to remain on EST. One signed
a statement that he wished to change to Central Standard
Time. It was' surprising to see so much interest in so
short a time over a matter that one would suspect would
be sort of immaterial.
S Somebody said that since we have now settled this
question of how the people feel, maybe we should try and
find out if the entire county wishes to change to Eastern
Standard Time, so that we would be uniform.
While this was only idle conversation, we feel that
should the question be formally posed, the same empha-
tic sentiment would be expressed to "leave it like it is".

tance of education, it seems to
me in the face of the above fi-
gures we have gone stark staring
mad on the subject.
The question is, are we getting
our money's worth for the tre-
mendous sums we are spending
on education? Is the investment
really worth while when we make
it at the expense of numerous
other needs that are crying for
Over the years educators and
the intelligentsia have sold us on
the idea that an education is jusf
about the only concern we have
today. They have sold us the idea
that unless a. youngster goes to
college he will turn out a total
loss with no hope for the future.
History of this country dis-
putes this reasoning. Our par-
ents and grandparents did not
enjoy such educational advanta-
ges as we are told are necessary
Still the country has progres-
sed and accomplished more than
any other country on earth led
and guided by men and women
who at today's values should
have been ignorant bums. Many
of them did not even finish high
school. Few enjoyed the advanta-
ges of a college education, but
they were long on ingenuity and
common sense. They learned
early in life to take care of them-
selves, meet their problem head
on, exercise sensible judgment
and solve them- with their God
They were disciplined by their
parents, taught-to work, respect
authority and assume responsi-
bility. They learned trades, found
ways to do things better and.used
their brains to advance and im-
prove their situation, unconcern-
ed over their so called rights.
If everybody in this country
was college educated and went
out to face the world seeking a
top slot, demanding that the
world recognize their educational
advantages, refusing to consider
anything but a high salaried job
with an executive title, as they
shake a college degree in the face
of their employer, where would
we wind up?
With our college students lead-
ing protest marches, our pro-
fessors urging them on and the
government voting more and
more money for education, isn't
it time we stopped to count o0r
change and see what we are real-
ly getting for our educational dol-
Don't Hunt Dogs
After Dark With
Gun In Possession
PANAMA CITY Major T. L.
Garrison, region manager, Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission,
has warned hunters to leave all
guns at home when they go on wild-
life management areas at night to
look for lost dogs or they could face
arrest on multiple charges.
Possession of any gun on a man-
agement area after designated hunt*
ing hours is prohibited, he said,
whether in hand or in a vehicle.
Possession of a gun while dis-
playing or using a light either on
private lands or wildlife manage-
ment areas is also prohibited, and
is an additional violation.
Garrison explained that hunters
frequently lose dogs during the
day's hunting and return at night
to recover them without first re-
moving their guns from hunting ve-
hicles. He also said that some hunt-
ers are illegally entering imanage-
ment areas in early morning hours
far in advance of shooting hours,
one half hour before sunrise.
He emphasized that the law pro-
hibits these actions and said that,
"If hunters aren't familiar with the
law, or do not observe it, they'er
going to be in trouble".

You never know what makes a person take something that does-
n't belong to them nor what makes them repent afterwards. But Mrs.
Braxton Ward is glad some at least do repent.
Two weeks ago somebody took all of the stereo tapes out of
her car while it was parked downtown. Wednesday night of last
week, the person or persons who took the tapes brought them
back and left them on her front porch, where she found them
Thursday morning. Of course, Mrs. Ward appreciates getting her
What made them bring the tapes back? Maybe they didn't
like the music.
LUXURIES or NECESSITIES?
Speaking of car tapes in automobiles; isn't it funny how things
"catch on" and become necessities, rather than luxuries?
It wasn't too long ago that one had to order his new car with
a heater in it. Now you have to special order one without a heater.
Not too many years back, a radio in an automobile was a fine extra.
Along with white sidewall tires, a radio in a car was the "ulti-
mate" a, far as the kids were concerned. Even later on, automatic.
transmissions began to catch on among the lazy who didn't want
to shift gears, now there are many drivers who have never driven
a manual shift car. Of course, air conditioning has to be right
up high on the list of things that were ultra luxuries just a few
years ago, but now can be found in the greater majority of auto-
mobiles. Now the stereo tape player is growing by leaps and bounds
in popularity by automobile owners.
And we wonder why the family bus costs so much! It's that
thousand dollars worth of extras that are now necessities that is
mostly to blame.
IT TAKES A MAN
It would seem to us that when one becomes a man he should
act like a man and not like a spoiled child.
While we respect the abilities of Senate President John Mat-
thews of Jacksonville, we can't speak highly of how he conducted
himself last week. Senator Matthews insulted the Governorship of
the' state of Florida and, in effect, ejected the chief executive
from the Senate chamber all because Matthews didn't agree
with the Governor's policies and because he was of another party.
Maybe Mr. Matthews doesn't agree with Kirk. The same holds
true for a lot of people. But nevertheless, Kirk is the Governor
of the State of Florida, and while he holds that office is due the
courtesy of the office.
It doesn't seem to us that Mr. Matthew's childish behaviour
will earn him very many "Brownie Points" in his quest for the
Governor's seat. By the same token, if and when he gets there,
he will expect the respect deserving of the position.
As senator Beth Johnson so aptly put it, Senator Matthews was
not only disrespectful of the office of Governor, he was rude.
Senator Matthews is going to have to assume man-like decorum
if he expects to capture the most man-size job in the State of Florida.

Santa Claus came to Port St. Joe Saturday on
a dreary, overcast and chilly day. But, in spite
of the weather, a large crowd turned out to greet
him and see the big parade assembled in his
honor. Though the weather may have been bad,
the sight of the jolly red-suited gentleman cleared
the skies for a lot of kids. The big parade was
sponsored jointly by the Port St. Joe Retail Mer-
chants and the Port St. Joe Jaycees. Both the
Merchants and the Jaycees, put a lot of work
and money into tie "annual parade, as well as a
lot of work and money put out by the people who
enter the parade with floats and exhibits.

Williams caught a Roberts pass
which took the Sharks to the Ga-

failed to connect.
With the Gators scoring on a
Shark mistake and the Sharks
making two threats to score, not
too much apprehension was felt

yardage came for the Gators in
bunches which gave them scores.
The Sharks had drive after drive
broken by pass interceptions and
two fumbles lost.

loss for the Sharks in 21 games
played over the past two seasons.
The Sharks were tough on de-
