Highways In Weekend
TALLAHASSEE---"Be a friend
first and then a good host," re-
minded the Florida Highway Pa-
trol this week as they predicted
that 34 persons will diei in traf-
fic accidents during the New
Year holiday period.
Patrol Director Reid Clifton
said, "As usual, alcohol will prob-
ably contribute to many of the
34 traffic deaths we are predict-
ing. If you plan a party, be a
friend first and then a good host.

Port St. Joe's volunteer fire
department was called to Wewa-
hitchka Monday night about 8:30
when fire was, discovered in the
Smith's Sundries building there.
The fire was discovered coming
through the roof of the building
and Port St. Joe was called due
to adjoining buildings being,
threatened. The fire was not as
bad as it was first thought, being
confined to the area where a
flue from a cooking unit goes
through the roof.

After Park Money
A Gulf County delegation will
attending a meeting in Tallahas-
see Monday of next week in an
attempt to get money released
to begin construction of the Sun-
land Training Center recreational
park on St. Joseph's Peninsula.
Money was appropriated in the
last session of the legislature to
start work on the facility, which
will serve all Sunland schools in
the State of Florida, but during
revamping of State government
the project has somehow become
sidetracked. The project is now
administered by the Department
of Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices, and must again win appro-
val of that department.
The old State Board of Health
and Park Board had previously
agreed on the project.
The meeting will be held at
2:30 p.m. with Representative Joe
Chapman, Hughey Williams, J. T.
McNeill and Charley Davis sche-
duled to appear in favor of go-
ing ahead with the project.

Company, found a yacht Satur-
The snapper boat, Aspaisa,
with Billy Watts as captain was
heading for the snapper fishing
grounds Saturday afternoon when
they spotted the half-sunk 40
foot Chris-Craft yacht flounder-
ing about 20 miles Southwest of
St. Joe sea buoy. The boat was
-up to its deck in the water, with
a hull full of sea water, but it
hadn't completely sunk.
Watts threw a line on the boat
and towed it back to the Dixie
,Seafood Company dock on the
Gulf County Canal.
Blake Thomason, one of the
operators of Dixie Seafood said
from what he can learn through
the U. S. Coast Guard, the boat
was being towed by a shrimp
boat to South Florida when rough
seas started it to sinking and the
tow line broke. The tow boat evi-
dently thought the boat was sink-
ing and left it.
Registration of the boat has
still not been ascertained, but a
radio registration on the boat is
issued to a George Brewer of St.
Louis, Mo. Officials are still at-
tempting to locate the owner.

The biggest complaint in the
letter, written by Dewey E.
Dodds, Chief, Education Branch,
Office for Civil Rights, seemed
to be the lack of a formal plan
plan filed by the School Board.
The letter noted several in-
stances where representatives
from HEW had visited the local
schools and discussed plans for
total integration of Gulf schools
and were fully aware of the Gulf
program, but they did not have
it in writing.
The letter complained that the
integration of Washington and
Port St. Joe High Schools, which
had been tentatively set for De-
cember, 1969, had been postpon-
ed to September 1970. This was
due to the building not being

The letter did not apply the
February 1 deadline for complete

alternative but to recommend
that enforcement proceedings as
provided by law be initiated."
BOARD WRITES HEW
The Board wrote HEW in Oc-
tober that several steps toward
complete integration had been
taken by the School district. It
pointed out that already a con-
siderable number of Negro stu-
dents and teachers were in both

March of Dimes Month
January is March of Dimes month. The older genera-
tion remembers when the March of Dimes "reached for
the moon" by setting the elimination-of polio as its goal.
Now that polio is rarer than typhoid, the March of Dimes
has set its sights on preventing birth defects.
In/medieval times, superstition had it that birth de-
fects were a form of punishment. Today, we live in an
enlightened age. Scientists are showing us, again and
again, the reasons why birth defects happen and how
some birth defects can be prevented. In medieval times,
children' born with crippling birth defects were shunned
and feared. Now, everyday, doctors are making strides
in treating children born with mental or physical handi-
caps, and helping them to live full and useful lives.
However, modern preventive or corrective measures
will never be fully effective unless the public is made more
aware that birth defects is a national health problem
which affects us all. The public must be made aware in
order for them to do something about the tragedy of
One infant born with a birth defect is tragedy enough,
but there are over 250,000 children born with physical or
mental defects every year. Birth defects are not a tra-
gedy that happen to someone else .. to some other
community. It is a nationwide tragedy which has and is
happening here in Port St. Joe. Unless we citizens of
Port St. Joe do something about birth defects, the, prob-
lem will expand and affect more and more of us.
The March of Dimes is in the fight to prevent birth.
defects. This newspaper believes that fight is a worth-
while one and we urge you, the citizens, to help them
. give to the March of Dimes. Prevent birth defects.

Dear Band and Mr. Clark,
Out of all my five years in the
High School Band, this has been
the most enjoyable year of them
all. I know I haven't been the best
of drum majors, but I have tried
my best to be a good one, and I
have tried to fulfill my duties as
your drum major.
This past Saturday (December 6)
was my last performance with you
as leading you in parades and half-
times. I ask you to look over my
mistakes I have made during this
year. I have enjoyed and found it
a great honor to be the drum ma-
jor of the Port St. Joe High School
Band, but only wish it hadn't pas-
sed by so quickly. Sure, I have the
rest of the year in concert band,
but even that couldn't take the
place of being out in front of you
and leading you as you play your
music and march. I will miss it in
This year, in marching contest,
we made a Superior. I was more
than happy to know that I was the
drum major who led you down
the field to and then past the judg-
es as they rated you with your
Superior. It let me know that all
the year of practice, and those
weeks before school, paid off and
we were now on our way to State.
I hope that I haven't failed in any
of my duties.
This note is written only for the
reason to say, "thank you" Band
and Mr. Clark, for letting me be
your drum major forthe 1969-70
school term. I will well remember
this last performance in leading
our band down the streets of Port
St. Joe for our annual Christmas
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Christmas has come and gone, and by now, most of the left-
overs should be gone and things nearly back to /normal.
After all of that chicken, turkey, ham, dressing, cakes, pies,
fruitcake, candy, ambrosia, nuts, and general junk with which we
stuff ourselves at Christmastime gone, wouldn't a tall glass of milk
with a-chunk of cornbread crumbled up in it taste good right now?
Or maybe a pot of beans?
With the passing of Thursday, it will be back to the old
schedule with a long stretch ahead until the July 4 holiday the
next holiday when the work-a-day schedule comes to a halt for
With the coming of a new year, we can't help but wonder what
it will bring especially in these uncertain times.
We understand that the paper mill officials have stated that
the mill will operate at least 350 days next year, which is good news
for people in this area. That leaves only 15 days for repair shut-
downs and holidays. This means that good business is) expected.
When the mill has good business, we can look for reasonably good
times in this area. I
Financial experts predict much the same kind of business for' ,
the entire nation next year a swing upward after a slight
downward trend this last quarter of the year.
Things point to a softening of the cold war next year, and,
maybe with a softening in this area, the war in Vietnam will begin
to cool down.
According to Congressman Bob Sikes news letter just before
Congress adjourned for Christmas, the United States and Red China
have just had .another informal talk in Warsaw, Poland. We have
also noticed in the past few days a trend to soften trade embargoes
with Red China and soften our line toward other nations trading
with the giant of the Orient.
Were the talks the instigator of the softer line? Will the soft-
er line result in China helping to bring an end to the Vietnam war?
Events of the past few days would point to the fact
that the South lost a great deal when Judge Clement
IHaynesworth was refused nomination to the Supreme
Court of the United States. Since that time, the Supreme
Court has taken over the prerogative of the President and
the Congress and has gone into the law making ahnd edict
passing business. It's real evident to everyone that most
of these acts are perpetrated against the South.
Last week the Supreme Court capped it all off with
its order that certain school, districts in the South would
end segregation and completely integrate by February 1.
We accept the Supreme Court's proclamation that the
schools should be integrated. We believe the Constitution
has adequately set forth equal opportunity for everyone
-especially should this be applied to children getting an
education to see that they are properly equipped to bet-
ter themselves, and by doing so, better the nation. The
Supreme Court defined the Constitution of the United
States, which is their sole responsibility, as we under-
Nowhere in the Constitution will one find that the
schools of the South shall be fully integrated on February
1, 1970. So, we say, the Supreme Court is out of bounds
in its proclamation.
It hardly seems to us that the Court is being com-

everyone? If we're going to be treated equal, let's make
it equal all over the nation.
While we believe integration in schools to be neces-

a period of 100 years will take at least a generation to
change. As here in Port St. Joe, the Negro people want
to maintain their schools. They have a legitimate reason.
But, just as consolidation would have been best for Gulf
County, so will consolidation in our City be better for the
student and his learning opportunity. This should be
placed above_everything else desires or whatever.
The United States Congress said in 1965, "no steps
could be required to correct 'racial imbalance' in schools
free from official discrimination".
What could be less discriminate than our "Freedom
of Choice" plan -, letting a student go to school where
he pleases. This also allows for a gradual, virtually pain-
less change-over of a century-old habit.
In conclusion, we believe the Supreme Court should
either stick to its purpose and let us continue our orderly
integration or give their same golden opportunity to all
of the nation.

ious students of the problem
warn us that unless some drastic
effort is made to stop this air
pollution our larger cities will
become death traps for millions
within the next 10 to 15 years.
While cigarette lung pollution
effects primarily those who use
them, the automobile and other
IC motor vehicles affect all life,
including vegetation and live-
We have been led to believe
that most air pollution was caus-
ed by exhausts from industrial
plants, but surveys have shown
that 80 percent come primarily
from automobiles and planes.
Consider the fact that motorists
of the City of Los Angeles con-
sume 800,000 gallons of gasoline
a day and you begin to under-
stand what is happening. Cities
suffering from this type of pol-
lution include Tokyo, London,
New York, Chicago and countless
California lawmakers have be-
come so alarmed over the situa-
tion that they are requiring that
all automobiles used in that state
be equipped with devices design-
ed to reduce pollution. Those on
the market today cost the motor-
ist about $200 to convert.
In the meantime scientists, in-
vestors and engineers are fran-
tically working to develop a prac-
tical steam operated automobile
that will effectively eliminate
most air pollution. Several con-
cerns are promising practical
steam operated cars within the
next few years.
In Los Angeles, the city po-
lice department will use 200
steam propelled cars as soon as
the manufacturer can deliver
Detroit has so far shown little
desire to consider anything but
the manufacture of conventional
IC cars. This is understandable,
for to convert to steam cars
would prove to be a tremendous
It is difficult to conceive the
chaos that would- result from a
sudden change from IC to any
other type of propulsion. It would
be extremely difficult to convert

would disrupt the automobile and

Yet it appears we cannot go
on much longer unless we take
steps to solve the vexing prob-
lem. The question is, can De-
troit come up with some sort of
a conversion answer or must we

All of these things are mysterious in their happening, but one
can see things going on, and things happening later that cause
speculation about trades, agreements, etc.
Maybe the talks are a good sign for moving closer to peace
0 in 1970. We hope so. The entire world is wasting too much man-
power and money on war that could be better spent. Notice, we
' say "the whole world", not just the United States. And when the
* whole world is engaged in such practices, the United States can-
not very well do otherwise.
With signs of encouragement, with much optimism building
in our heart, and the faith that things will get better, we wish
you all a very Happy New Year.

w-hich carried an amendment in-
creasing maximum Federal Deposit

Effective December 23, this means
customer deposits in Florida banks
will now be insured against loss up
to a maximum amount of $20,000
by the FDIC.
This is the fourth increase in the
FDIC's maximum coverage of bank

cent increase was from $10,000 to
$15,000 in October, 1966.
Julian Fant, president, F i r s t

crease this week, "The increase rec-
ognizes the growing affluence ofi
the American public. If also means'
that individuals and corporations

Medicare Beneficiaries Get Increase
In Their Share of Hospital Costs
Because of the tremendous in-
crease in the cost of the average
hospital stay, social security Medi-
care beneficiaries will have an in-
crease in their share of hospital
costs, according to Jack E. Snipes,
Manager of the Panama City So-
cial Security Office. Beginning Jan-
uary 1, 1970, the social security
beneficiary will pay the first $52.00
of their hospital costs rather than
$44.00 as in the past.
The increase of $8.00 that a Med-
icare beneficiary will pay in his
hospital bill effective in January is
a result of the long term trend to-
ward increasing. hospital costs. It
is also the result of the general in-
flation that, has been taking place.
Gulf Sales Tax
TALLAHASSEF-The steady in-
carcas inF Tlorida's sale in Cuse
tax collections continued for the
month of November, reaching a
new peak of more than $50.2 mil-
lion, Comptroller Fred 0. (Bud)
Dickinson, Jr., reported this week.
The increase in the collections
amounted to more than $7.5 mil-
lion, or 17.7 per cent over the col-
lections for November of 1968,
The increase in the November
collections brought the fiscal year
totals (July-November) to $251,286,-
129, showing an increase of nearly
$36 million, or 16.6 per cent, over
the 1968 fiscal year collections.
Gulf County sales and use tax
collections have been showing stea-
dy increases over the past few
months, but took a backward slide
during November. Last year, Gulf
County reported $42,723.93 in tax
collections. During November of
1969, $37,598.75 was collected, re-
flecting a 12% decrease. Gulf's
splurge of increase has probably
been due to construction purchases
by contractors building the new

dustry improvements currently un-
Gulf County reported a whop-
ping $79,469.11 collected during
the month of October.
The hospital deductible amount is
intended to make the Medicare
beneficiary responsible for expens-
es equivalent to the average cost of
one day of hospital care.
In the event the beneficiary stays
more than 60 days, then his share
of the cost will be $13.00 -per day
for all days over 60 days up to 90
days, Snipes advised. Before Jan-
uary 1, 1970, this was $11.00 per

Gulf Coast College
"Since we send students to every
college in the South plus many in
the rest of the nation, we must
maintain a high academic standard
and remain on an accredited sta-
tus" Dr. Richard Morley told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday. Morley was
speaking of Gulf Coast Junior Col-
lege and its constant program to
maintain high academic standards.
Morley said that Gulf Coast be-
came an accredited school in 1962
-the earliest possible date it was
eligible to apply for accreditation-
and it has maintained this status
ever since. The spealter said that
Gulf Cbast's accre-itation- status
will come up a in for examination
in 1972 and already the school has
started a self-examination program
to make 'sure everything is as it
sl6iild be to assure 'reaffirmation
The college president pointed out
that the entire Gulf Coast faculty
is cognizant at all- times of the im-
portance of their task, and with a
working relationship with student
groups, full attention is given at
all times to maintainn a high acade-
mic standard. "'
Morley touched for a few mo-'
ments on the lack of disturbance
at the Gulf Coast campus and said
the credit goes to ,the fine homes
in the area served by Gulf Coast.

Airport facilities in Florida have
doubled in number and improved
appreciably in quality during the
past ten years, the Florida State
Chamber of Commerce stated in its
Weekly Business Review released
There were 257 airports, 18 heli
ports and six seaplane bases in
Florida as of the first of last year
The total number, 281, ranked the
state eighth in this respect. Ten
years ago the number of airport
facilities came to 140, ranking the
state in 16th place.
"Improvement in aviation facili
ties has kept pace with the gain in
numbers," Ronald S. Spencer, Jr.
chamber executive vice president
said. "For example, there are now
18 airports in the state with run
ways of 7,000 feet or more, six o
which were constructed during thi
past ten years. Today 73 of Flor
ida's airports are both paved ani
lighted, twice, the 1958 figure,
Spencer said ,
The numbers of. registered air
craft and of active pilots in th
state have also gained. Active pi
lot certificates held by Floridian
reached 30,000 last year, compared
with 13,000 in 1958. Registered ail
craft moved from 2,000 in 1958 t
7,100 last year.
During the past 20 years a total
of $94 million has been spent in
