Sharks Skin Gators, 24-0, Friday

Halfbacks Norris Langston and
Kloskia (Stanky) Lowery carried
the ball over the goal line for
the Port St. Joe Sharks in the
first period and reserve quarter-
back Ken Whittle plunged over
from the one yard line with two
minutes left in the game to give
the Port St. Joe Sharks a 24-0
victory over county rival Wewa-
hitchka Friday night.
Langston also ripped off a long
60 yard carry in the third per,
iod which was called back by an
offside penalty. Both teams were.
plagued with the flag-itis in
Friday night's game.
The .Sharks scored with only
a minute and a half gone in the
game. A long pass from quar-
terback Chuck Roberts who play-

Archie Shackleford bulled over
for, the two point conversion,
giving the Sharks a 16-0 lead.
-Late in the first period, the
Gators penetrated Shark terri-
tory for the first time in the
game for their initial first down.
The Sharks were threatening
with two minutes to go in the
half when a Roberts pass was
picked off by Steve Forehand of
the Gators. Wewa's hard runner
Curtis Branch broke loose with
several fine runs, but a fumble
on the 20 yard line recovered by
'the Sharks' Rex Elliott with only
20 seconds left in the half stop-
ped the Gator drive.
As the second half began, half-
backs Lowery, Langston and Ar-
chie Shackleford began to grind
out yardage, but the Gators put
on one of their several fine de-
fensive efforts and stopped the
drive on their 19 yard line. The
Gators then put on their best and
longest drive of the night only

n theball game of politics here in Florida, the pit-
; ,cher (the electorate) is winding up to throw the second
ball across the primary plate and see which of the candi-
dates pops out on this second chance or remains at bat
A for the third pitci which is to come on November 3.
The voters will have to use all their acumen and guile
on this pitch because there are some pretty good hitters
in the box with their eye on getting a chance at that third
and final ball with which to get on base.
The electorate here in Gulf County needs to use every-
tthing in its power to see that the man remains at the plate
who will do us the most good when it comes down to the
last out.' The man who is still at the plate on November
4 will take us into four years of the "world series" or he
will relegate us to the "farm team" by favoring, the "other
league", rather than carrying the ball for the home team

Stewart Alsop writing in Newsweek magazine last
week offered the opinion that things are settling down in
th United States. -
Alsop had just returned from a few weeks spent in'
: Europe and he said that being away from home gives one
a new insight when returning to familiar surroundings
once again. This new look, he wrote, convinced him that
the past few years of turmoil in our nation are beginning
to come to an end. .,
; Alsop gave as signs for his reasoning, that riots in
.the big cities-are tapering off. Disturbances on the cam-
.:.pus have been non-existant so far this year. Even the


send a seasoned veteran to the plate again, who will be
able to "hit it out of the park" for Gulf County. We des-
perately need a win under our belt to stay in the game.
We. would also urge upon you a rookie and a young
player with a season under his belt. These two men are
William J. Rish and Joe Chapman.
Rish has had good training in the minor leagues,
even though he hasn't hit big league pitching as yet. Rish
has the attributes to make a good man for our team -
youth, ability, training, desire (not to mention a suffi-
ciency of wind). Rish may not be a home run hitter,
but we believe he has the keen eye and the knowledge of
the political game enough to give us those needed hits in
th Florida Legislature to help our county and our
district mightly in the game of progressing.
We would urge that you join Rish's team as a, cheeri-
leader and even as a bat boy, if need be. But vote for
him to give our team a boost.
Chapman has' had a term of experience and.'could
well be termed "rookie of the year" in the ;Legislature.
He swung a'big bat during the sessions in which he par-
ticipated and made some telling blows for our district and
the state at large. .
Don't trade him off Tuesday; he has great potential.

campus radicals are being shut up and held down by the
"silent majority" on the campuses. 'He even noted a move
to organize the majorities on the campuses to give answer
to, the radicals. He also stated that these students are
calling for college administrators to expell those raising
cain so the classes paid for by students can be presented
for their benefit. *
Al Al Alsop says is true. Things are seeming, to cool
down. It's with impatience that we now await the end
to the crippling automobile strike and te :threatened rail
strike so that we can proceed with utmost speed back to
a normal situation in which we lcan once, again pursue
happiness and the good life that this country has to offer.

doesn't know, will never know nor will ever see. As we
see it freedom is having a choice either/or to follow one
direction or another without the direction being chosen
for you. Freedom is reading what' you want, without hav-
ing your subject matter decided for you. Freedom is wor-
shipping as you want without having a god dictated for
you. Freedom is seeking the top if you have the guts
and the equipment to make it.
Websters dictionary defines freedom as "not enslaved;
not in a state of vassalage or dependence; subject only to
fixed laws of a free state, nation or people." So. any way
you look at it, the Panthers have freedom; if only they
weren't such slaves of ,their own warped judgement to
see it.

cursed them as litter.
Few realize what the coconut
palm has contributed to man-
kind. Scientists who have studied
and researched the coconut palm
term it "the most useful of all
God's trees". For centuries it has
served man! more abundantly
than any other tree.
While Florida coconut palms
contribute little other than tour-
ist appeal and souvenirs, those
of other .areas such as Indonesia,
the Philippines and numerous is-
lands of the Indian Ocean. and
the Pacific, contribute an amaz-
ing amount of wealth to the
world's economy and inpumera-
ble products of every kind and
Long before American horticul-
turists and landscape architects
discovered the advantage- of the
coconut palm as a decorative
plant natives of the South Seas
and tropical Asia had been using
them to construct shelters and
for heat and light.
Coconut oil has long been re-
cognized as a perfect base for a
variety of cosmetics from sham-
poos to foot 'oil. Medicine men
of the tropics have, professed its
magical powers.
Among the products developed
from the coconut palm are furni-
ture, mattresses, soap, toothpaste,
cups, saucers. Natives use them
to heat their huts in winter and
as fans to cool in summer. Coco-
nut oil is used in their lamps
for lighting at night. Fishermen

use them or materials they pro-
vide in building boats, making
sails, fishing lines and nets.
The food value of the coconut
is amazing. A single good nut
has as much protein as a quarter
pound of beefsteak.' A wide vari-
ety of foods and drinks 'contain
coconut. Like the cabbage palm,
the coconut tree has a heart that
can be eaten as a delicious salad.
But if the heart is removed the
tree dies.
Coconut oil is used extensively
in numerous food and cosmetic
products. Coconut products are
used in the manufacture of cars,
cigarettes, kitchen items and
The unopened flowers of the
palm are protected by a sheath -
that looks much like burlap.
From this material rugged items
are made including shoes, caps
and helmets. The open flowers
attract bees and, like our orange-
,blossom honey, is very tasty and
tangy. A sweet juice can be ex-
tracted from the unopened
flowers if they are bound tightly
and pressed which is used in the
manufacture of syrup or sugar
similar to maple. It can also be
fermented into a robust beer
that is popular in coconut grow-
ing areas.
If someone calls you a "nut"
don't resent it. Just assume they
are referring to coconut and con-
sider it as a compliment.

Gulf County will make its mark this year in two school classes
with its football teams and bands. Wewahltchka brought a fine
though small football team to Port St. Joe Friday night and gave
the big Sbark a team a run for its money. The Gator band was also
a pleasant surprise for their Port St. Joe cousins.; Bandmaster
Washington, an alumnus of Florida A & M University which fields
one of the most famous bands in the nation, has performed wonders
with what has in the past proved to be an exercise in futility to have
a good band in Wewahitchka. The band was small, but it performed
very well and had a good sound. They'll make their mark in the
state festivals this year.
Port St. Joe's team was expected to be strong even if only on
the momentum engendered last year. They, of course, made the
usual first game miscues which cost penalty after penalty, but they
looked strong and ready to go. The band was another matter.
After two years of being inithe doldrums, the band was beginning to
make headway last year under the direction of James Clark. Clrk
left for a better job and it was with apprehension that fans looked
for the band's first performance this year. A new band master after
only a' year of building certainly shouldn't promise much. But
Reign Shipley's charges acted like veterans Friday night.' One of
their maneuvers hadn't even been practiced, but all went well. The
band has a fine sound and the new uniforms has helped their ap-4
pearance tremendously.
It ought to be a good year.
The University of Florida has put forth a proclamation that
there shall be no more hard drink carried on the University's foot-
ball stadium. Understandably the ruling has made some mad while
making many others glad. It has always been a marvel to me that
some drunk in a college stadium hasn't fallen and knocked several
people in front of him down jhe steep incline that makes up the
bleacher sections, injuring someone severely.
It's a state-wide ruling that alcoholic beverages not be allowed
in high school athletic programs and we think it would be the pro-
per thing to do for local police and school officials to get, as serious
about enforcing this ruling as has the University of Florida.
It was reported the other day where another of those so-called
musicians died from an overdose of drugs.
In the first place, we didn't know it was necessary' for a person
to take drugs as a requisite to making good music. But apparently,
this, like a lot of other things, has changed. The thinking now
seems to be that if a musician(?) doesn't get all hopped up on drugs
he just can't "properly" feel the message or the rhythm.
On the other hand, it's getting so hardly a day goes by that
one doesn't read of one of these stupid young punks winding up on
\ a slab in a mortuary because he just had to have the kicks that
comes from the drugs: Or, maybe, it's sort of like the old kid game
of "dare you". If, you're going to be a part of what's happening
you've got to take a chance at killing yourself.
Just how much proof does the foolish part of the .young genera-
tion need to convince them that taking the drugs is a dangerous

week that within the past '30 days,
37 Florida state flags have been
sent to Vietnam at a cost of $222.

veterans, civic and fraternal or,

money or flags so the FDC can
continue its overseas distribution
of Florida state flags. .
The Department of Commerce Is

Those wishing to contribute to
the flag fund should .contact Allen

Commerce. The 3' x 5' flags cost
about $5.77 each in lots of 100.
