The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum
: So said Al Capp at the Tenth Aniversary convention
of Young Americans for Freedom at Sharon, Connecticut,
describing circumstances at a few college campuses mn
our country today.
"The new lunacy now dominates the old ceremonies,"
fir-' Capp told the 500 YAF delegates, representing 50,-
000 students from all parts of the country. "It has made
carnivals of commencements, so obscene that only the
student hysterics and& hyenas,, the brawlers and the bed-
wetters, the muxggeth and the arsonists, the criminals and
: the creeps, can safely attend them.
S"Some come to those ceremonies solely to stomp out
of them, shrieking slogans from old editorials in the Daily
SWorker or from the sermons of William Sloan Coffin.
SSome, whose'talent for obscenity has earned them the
honor of speaking for their1 class, come to curse their.
parents, guests and faculty hosts.'. But the mindless and
mannerless minority all come, in complete confidence that
no matter how beastly their acts,'how foul their mouths,
they will be welcome and protected
: "Two students this year, more typical of the majority,
didn't dare come to their graduation. They knew their
colleges would not dare protect them from hyenas, or even
from being hurt by them. -
"These two had committed such social crimes as at-
tending classes instead of riots, and of getting married
before they'moved, into an apartment together.
"But, most unforgiveable of all, 'these two came from
families considered by many in Princeton's Social Science
Department, to be more ill-bred than the Jukes of the
Kallikahs; they came from families which had each bred
"1970 is the year Julie and David Eisenhower were,
in effect, barred from their graduations. It is the year
Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman took charge. It is the
year of the lunatic."
Al Capp placed the blame squarely upon the "intellec-
tuals" running the colleges--described by Capp as "the
world's highest paid baby sitters." The university ad-
ministrators who have allowed the new Hitlerites of the
Socialist Scholars Conference and others to teach hatred
and spread venom are directly responsible for'the tragic
deaths and destruction we have seen this past year. There
are some who hope that we may be able to shame the
academic community into initiating reform. But we doubt
it. Those who have no sense of decency have a similar
lack of capacity for shame.
Even Capp, whose business is finding humor in every-
thing, can find no humor at all in this situation.
-Palm Lined Drive Looks Fine
Several: Port St. Joe people have bLn amazed and.
impressed by the mechanical palm tree mover which has
been operating in our City recently aroimund the old ele-
meniary school and,new high school sites. The machine
Shas been busy for the last two weeks moving palm trees
'from fhe old to the new site. The machine drew a great
deal of attention the way it pushed four long shovel-like
prongs.,into the ground to remove the tree, its roots and
,a. chunk of its native dirt in one operation.
The machine was a marvel. It was efficient and it
was- unique in that it probably(moved these palms in such
a manner as to practically insure their living in their
new environment. /
The machine didn't titillate us near so much as the
fact that someone had the foresight not to, let the beau-
tiful palms in front of the old elementary school go to
pot or eventually be destroyed when and if the old school
buildings are destroyed or renovated for some purpose
or other. The palms set of the new high school very well,
giving it that "Florida look" and enhancing the circular
drive to the school's front entrance.
We are certainly glad the palms were not neglected
and allowed to go to waste, but were put in a very advan-
tageous spot to properly set off the approach to an ele-
gant building. '- '
Congratulations to who ever thought of the idea.

pollution and the Eternal, In-

gine from which so much of our
Shower is- derived today and which
we are only now beginning to
realize is the major cause of air
pollution in our iarge cities.
In the October issue of Es-

than 50,000 people in the United
States in accidents. But nobody

Automobile manufacturers and
the government have finally rea-
lized that the situation is really
serious and are taking steps, be- .
lately, to do something about it.
The situation is serious, for
to rectify it, we must upset the
nation's economy far beyond
anything we have ever experienc-
ed before. Those charged with
solving the problem, automotive
engineers and Congress, to say
nothing of state legislators and
municipal leaders, see the pro-'
blem as staggering. -

I feel it necessary to bring to
your attention the attendance fig-
ure mentioned in last week's Star
pertaining to the reception giv-
en for Dr./ Sue Conley, Sunday,
September 6. We do not know
where you got your figure of 175
as we only had 49 listed on our
guest book, excluding our board
members and St. Anns Guild of
St. James Church, who were the
propane gas or steam, who would
service it? Where would-we buy
our fuel? Who would take care
of repair service? Wouldn't it
be better to stop exposure to pos-
sible death from air pollution
than give up the convenience -of
the internal combustion engine?
Our automobile manufacturers,
cognizant of the situation, are
trying frantically to find the an-
swer. They are all experimenting
and testing new types of power
for motor cars. Foreign manufac-
turers realize that if they are to
hold their own in our market
they must come up with the an-
swer to pollution and they are
working as hard on the problem
as American producers.
In the meantime, oil companies
seek to find ai answer by pro-
ducing anti-pollutent gas. Radio,
television and newspaper adver-
tising informs us that new fuel
will do the job, but nobody really
Cities like Tokyo, New York,
Chicago and Los Afigeles watch
their hospitals jammed with peo-
ple suffering from air pollution
whenever there is an air inver-
sion and stagnent air affects
their respiratory condition.
It seems that we are in a first
class, unadultrated fix and, un-
less we find the answer soon, it
won't make much difference to
most of us.
Mrs. Virginia Cannon sent 369
formal invitations and we espec-
ially wanted the Gulf County
Schoolteachers to attend as we
feel they would be able to recog-
nize the needs of our children
and assist Dr.. Conley in her work.

that our county was not fairly

We were over to St. Joe Stevedores the other day talking about
an article the Lykes Lines wants to do on Port St. Joe's port in
their monthly magazine which makes the rounds of the shippers
of merchandise by water.
Asking Billy Tapper to enumerate some of the cargoes that
go across the local docks Tapper said, "I'll bet no port has the odd
cargoes that we do". "How's that, Bill", we said. Billy replied,
how many ports do you know of ships 640 tons of ground chicken
feathers at a lick?".
We had to admit that we didn't know of very many. As a
matter of fact we don't know of any. If you really were to pin us
down we'd have to admit that we didn't even know the port of
Port St. Joe shipped 640 tons of ground up chicken feathers at a
lick. We didn't even know there WAS 640 tons of ground up
Chicken feathers are gathered up from all the processors in
South Georgia, South Alabama and North Florida by a firm in
Marianna which grinds them up and ships them through Port St.
Joe to Japan.
Our next project is to try and find out what Japan does with'*
640 tons of ground up chicken feathers. We know what they do
with drink cans they make cars out of them. But chicken
Thursday night is my "unwind" night. That night is kept free
for just laying back in the old recliner and watching my favorite
television shows, "Daniel Boone" and "Ironsides". I was verily un-
happy when the. NBC network announced they were taking Daniel
Boone off the air. They can air such tripe as the Frank Sinatra
Special, the Nancy Sinatra Special, the Migratory Worker special,
and all the other specials that are not worth the time it takes to
watch them but they had to remove Daniel Boone.
After watching a couple of weeks of "Flip Wilson", I find
that the pain has been eased somewhat, caused by the demise of
Daniel. If a fellow ever wanted to lean back in his recliner and
watch a TV show or two to unwind, he can do it with the Flip
Wilson show. That clown could make anybody laugh and un-
-It's the beginning of the end of the big airliner hijackings.
The only thing that kept the practice alive and thriving was the
fact that the hijackers could get away with it.. It is just prudent
that one do what a hijacker says way up there in the air. It's such a
long fall down if he really isn't bluffing. And the fact ,that he
could land safely in Cuba got him aIl kinds of nation-wide publicity;
made him a "big man".
Last week Cuba: allowed the U. S. to arrest a hijacker. With
the stiff penalty now on U.S. law books for stealing jet airplanes,
and the Cubans handing the culprit over to U.S. marshals, the
sport of collecting free 74?T rides is coming to a screeching halt.

Before and after that time, she
made many bequests to colleges
and received honorary degrees
from eight of them..
She divided her time between
the Epping Forest estate on tl6e
St. Johns River at Jacksonville,
which duPont built for her, and
the 77-room NemourS estate at
Wilmington where she died. Ne,

Jessie Dew Ball was born Jan-
uary 20, 1884 to Thomas and Lal-
la Ball at Hardings, Va. She at-
tended Wytheville, Va., Seminary

She first met Alfred duPont

It was 21 years later that du-
Pont went to San Diego, Calif.,
and took Jessie from her job as
teacher and assistant school prin-

Her charm and tact were cre-

His second wife died in 1908.

Potted citrus in thed Ihtio will
spice, up your gossip sessions.
If you prefer modern gossip,
then explain that citrus with its en-
chanting odor mingled with moon-
light can ignite sparks of romance.
By adding local names, this con-
versation can run for hours.
"Citrus" varieties suited for pot
plantings include the Kumquat, Me-
yer lemon, ponderosa lemon, Otahe-
ite orange and Chinotto.
Three varieties of the kumquat
are Nagami, Marumi and Meiwa.
The latter is sweetest of the three.
Kumquats are called golden bean
by the Chinese because the bright
orange ,fruit are somewhat bean
Kumquats are inherently dwarfs,
and when propagated on trifoliate
orange stock the plant is reduced in
size. They are ideal pot plants.
Otaheite orange is a misnomer,
since it is not an orange but akin
to an acidless lime. Fruit color ran-
ges from orange to reddish orange.
The plants are quite attractive at
Christmas, since plants a foot or
so high may carry up to a dozen
1%-inch fruit, plus blossoms. The
fruit has orange colored fiest that
is flat and insipid in flavor.
The Meyer lemon bears fruit a-
bout the size and shape of the com-
mercial lemon. It fruits more or
less the year around. It is an ex-
cellent variety for home use and
is an acceptable substitute for com-

Of Clinic Work
Dr. Susan Coriiley, psychologist
in charge of the Gulf County Guid-
ance Clinic told the Rotary Club
last Thursday of the organization's
name nad of the services the clin-
ic offers the people of the Port St.
Since its organization in 1965,
the program 'has operated,, under
the name of Gulf County Commit-
tee for Guidance and Counselling,
now shortened to the Gulf County
The clinic is open every Tues-
day with offices in the Gulf County
Health Department building on
Long Avenue. Dr.' Conley is the
first full time psychologist to serve
the clinic. She aso serves clinics
in Bay and Jacksion Counties. A
The purpose of the clinic is to
help people with their emotional
problems -- both children a n d
adults. Dr. Conley said the clinic's
patient load is about evenly divided
between children and adults.
Many children using the services
of the clinic have school problems
-not learning to potential, per-
ception problems, discipline prob-
lems, etc., which the psychologist
treats through therapy.
Adults bring such/ problems as
marital difficulties, and 'emotional
conflicts to the clinic for help.
Each patient is charged accord-
ing to his ability to pay. The re-
mainder of the clinic expense is
made up through local contribu-
tions and state and federal aid.
We would like to thank the mem-
bers of the Port St. Joe Volunteer
Fire Department, who answered
the call for help on Sunday, Sep-
tember 20 when our garage burn-
ed down and our home was in dan-
Withoutthe help of the Volun-
teers we could have lost bur' home.

Stafford Claims Mosquito
Spray Killing Fish In Pond
For the third time during the
past few years, fish began to
die Friday morning in a pond be-
longing to Walter Stafford at
White City. For the third time,
Stafford places the blame for
the fish kill at the feet of the
Gulf County Pest Control depart-
Stafford said he counted about
75 large bream and bass that
came to the surface and died
in this latest kill. Some of the
bream were very large; all were
above average size.
Stafford claimed that when the
wind blows from a certain di-
rection and the Mosquito people

With U.S. Combat Air Forces,

Sergeant Billy J. Griffin, son of
Mrs. Louis P. Garrett of Kilmich-

Sergeant Griffin, a radar oper-

die. The pond is located about
100 yards from Highway 71
across the highway from Staf-
ford's home. The pond is about
two acres in size and is used by
Stafford solely for the purpose
of raising fish.,
Emmett Daniell, foreman for
the Mosquitol Control Depart-
ment, said that id his opinion
the fish are being killed by some-
thing other than hi? mosquito
spray. "We use only malathion
in our operations, and our ento-
mologists say it will not kill a
fish", Daniell said.
Daniell took samples from the
bottom of Stafford's pond, four
water samples and four of the
dead fish to Tallahassee Monday
for analysis to-. ee if the cause
of death could- be determined.
"We did thesame thing two years
ago when Stawword's fish died"
he said, "and \no cause could be
found for the' fish dying".
Two of the' many large bream found dead in Walter Stafford's
fish pond at White City are shown in the ,photo above.
