Sharks "Christianize" Demons 30
To 12 In Homecoming Tilt Friday
Everybody seemed happy but the queen elect, as Miss Jan Pet-
erson was crowned "Homecoming Queen" by last year's queen, Bren-
da Wall. Miss Peterson's escort is Freddie Capps.

School Senior, was crowned

Miss Peterson was crowned by,
last year's queen, Brenda Wall,
who also received her nomina-
tion in 1969 by a vale, of tears.
In the homecoming game, the
Sharks scored eight times to rout
the Demons in what Superinten-
dent R. Marion Craig aptly des-
cribed as a "Christianizing of the
Demons". Three of the Shark
touchdowns were called back by
penalties and a ninth TD was nar-
rowly missed when Mike Wim-
berly caught a Roberts' pass just
outside the end zone in the fourth
quarter. In spite of the mis-cues
the Sharks succeeded in humb-
ling the Demons, 30-12.
The Sharks scored in every per-
iod and played their reserves for
much of the game.
'Norris Langston scored on the
second play of -the game from
the Shark 39, on a long run, but
a penalty nullified the effort.
Charles Britt, Archie Shackleford
and Langston then worked the
ball down to the five yard line
where Langston went wide to
score. Every extra point attempt
by the Sharks was no good.
Archie Shackleford took a De-
mon punt on his own 46 late in
the first period and returned it to
the Demon 39 to set up the next
score. Langston- scampered
around end for 35 yards and the
In the second period a Roberts
pass to Charles Britt for 13 yards
started the Sharks marching to
their third TD. A flare pass to
Langston covered 32 yards for
the Shark score.
Midway in the third period,
Roberts unloaded an 11 yard ae-
rial to Eddie Holland. Perry At-
kison then took a pass from the
48 all the way to the Demon 10.
Roberts then threw to Holland in
the end zone for the score.
With 2:20 left in the third per-
iod, Florida High scored for the
first time this season when Doug
Dickinson plowed through the
middle for 11 yards and the
It looked like Archie Shackle-
ford was going to retaliate on the
kick-off, when he fielded the kick

though and the Sharks failed to

"Writer" Slams Port St. Joe
John McAleenan, a writer for "Today" a newspaper
published in Melbourne, must be an unusual man. He
must be a very perceptive man.. For anyone to spend less
than a day in Port St. Joe, hold conversation with only
two people and be able to "accurately" diagnose the think-
ing and 'problems of this city.
McAleenan was indeed unusual in that his long stringy.
hair, his s'liggy, matted beard and his clothes that looked
as if they had been slept in for several days-after -being
rescued from a second-hand store--made him unusual, at
least for this "city of deceit". V
The writer in question, came through this city a few
weeks back, talked' to two people, tried to put words in
the mouths of two or three more, then drew his own con-
clusions, splashing them across the pages of "Today" in a
very uncomplimentary manner.
McAleenan has this to say about Port St. Joe: "Reid
Street is mostly closed. The hotel cafe bar is closed. The'
theatre is closed. Harry's bar is closed (wherever "Harry's
Bar" is--ed.) Therek are the usual paint and hardware
stores, of course. And Westemn Auto. But each has a
strange suspended look about them. At 6 p.m. they are
all closed, too. The streets are deserted. It looks, somehow,
as if no one had everi lived or worked or played there."
It's a pity that McAleenan considers that Port St. Joe (or
evidently any town) is dead because "Harry's" bar ,s clos-
'ed. We' didn't even .know there was a "Harry's" Bar in
Port St. Joe, even after 30 years of living here. 'Evidently
,Mr. ,McAleenan found at least one bar open before he
wrote his little epistle, judging from the tone of the ar-
As if Port St. Joe was the only City in the State of
Florida-:-or even the nation-with problems of adjusting
to. the new order of school attendance. McAleenan has
plenty of fodder for this type story in his own central and
South Florida without'wasting his valuable time coming
all the way to Port St. Joe where, as grievous as our prpb-
"lems are to its citizens, they are minor in comparison with
those of other communities. .
Mr. McAleenan isn't very perceptive, nor does he un-,
derstand what he reads very well. He spoke of the shame
of it all in the Port St. Joe area, keeping the llacls from
having their own school, preventing whites from going to
black schools, etc. Mr. McAleenan apparently hasn't fol-
lowed the edicts of the Supreme Court very closely which
has made it its purpose to abolish "black schools" and
"white schools". There' shall be only schools. This
"writer" apparently didn't notice the city limits sign of
Port St. Joe to the West of this former black school about
which he writes, nor does he mention the $2.5 million new
school and the modern elementary school being remodeled
to take care of the children between the West and East
boundary of Port St. JJoe.
He mentions, truthfully, that the Washington School
was shut down. The School Board erred in their timing
of this action, and they admit it. But Mr. McAleenan and
others tend to forget that the Board promised a year and
a half ago, to keep Washington open IF the courts would
allow it to be maintained as a neighborhood school. The
courts wouldn't allow it.
McAleenan says the School Board and the whites of
this community maneuvered its own school attendance plan.
It's curious that not a soul in Port St. Joe believes that.
This "writer" blames the whites for insisting that blacks
attend Highland View school, when in fact, Judge David
Middlebrooks insisted on this even before the Board
made its move to close Washington.
To ,Mr'McAleenan, and others like him, we would say
that we know things aren't perfect here, just as they aren't
perfect anywhere. True, we are trying to manage things
so that they will be most nearly perfect for the majority
and beneficial/ for everyone., At no time do we believe
anyone is being deliberately given the "short end of the
stick". We 'have a good town here, and we have always
and will continue to work out our own problems and make
our own living as best we can.
One thing we don't do here in Port St. Joe, we don't
send emmisaries to South Florida and write uncomplimen-
tary articles about how those people make a living by
over-charging Yankee tourists. .

Test of St. Joseph Bay waters
near Port St. Joe have detected
no traces of mercury, according
to the State Department of Air
and Water Pollution Control.
K. K. Huffstutler, chief of the
Department's Bureau of Surveil-
lance, said State Pollution Con-
trol and Federal Water Quality
Control investigators made the
tests because of mercury found
previously by Florida State Un-
iversity research scientists.
Nineteen samples taken on the
17th were rushed to the Federal
Water Quality Administration
laboratory at Athens, 'Georgia.
Huffstutler said the federal a-
gency's testing equipment is
"extremely sophisticated," and
it "can detect the presence of
mercury in concentrations down
'to two-tenths parts per billion."
Huffstutler said that when no
mercury is found in such ana-
lyses, the results are referred to
as being "below the detectable
limit" of the test. He added that
"when we have negative test re-
sults, such as these we consider
it positive information we had-
n't tested, we wouldn't know
there's none there."
Huffstutler explained that the
difference between the "below
detectable limits" found by the
Federal Water Quality Adminis-
tration and the extremely low
levels found by Florida State Un-
iversity is probably because of a
difference in sample handling.

Here we find ourselves right smack-dab in the middle of "In-
dustry Week" and we here in Port St. Joe-an industry town-
have virtually overlooked it. We here at The Star publicly apolo-
gize for letting the week come upon us before we can do anything
about it other than recognize that we are grateful for industrial pop-
ulation here in'our city.
It's funny how those who do not have the blessings of an in-
dustrial payroll can find all kinds of excuses to knock various and
kindred industries. The Chamber of Commerce gets letters occa-
sionally from tourists passing through who "just can't see how such
a pretty town can pit up with so much industry". We know that
the industry has made this "pretty town" and keeps it that way.
We want industry-our industry-to know that we appreciate
,them this week and every week.
It's that time of year again. Saturday night before you go to
bed, be sure to set your clock back an hour because we are going
off Daylight Savings Time Saturday night (or early Sunday morn-
ing, to be exact) and you will get a chance to make up for that hour
of sleep you lost back during the Spring.
This means that when you wake up Monday morning to go to
work or to school, it will be a little lighter. That is, of course, un-
less you have one of those jobs where you go to work at the ungodly
hour of 6:30 to 7:00 a.m. Personally, we had rather go at a "rea-
sonable" hour of 8:00 to 8:30 and make up for those early hours
later in the day. .
Don't forget, before going to bed Saturday night, set the clock
BACK one hour.
SOne editor wrote recently, "I would like to be so young I could
listen to "The Greatful Dead" all day long without having a running
fit. That's young!"
I find myself in somewhat of a delimma. I wasn't even aware
there was such a thing as "The Greatful Dead" which I take to be
a music(?) group. Could this be "old"?
Signs that a son is growing up: He came in the other day
with a coat; something he has disdained for years in the past, no
matter what the temperature outside or the occasion. He's going
to look funny going down the street in a coat and barefooted ..
unless this change has gone deeper than I expected.
He may even wear shoes. maybe even with socks, yet!
Congressman Bob Sikes made the remark last Friday in the
new Port St. Joe Gymnasium that, "The air conditioning really works.
If it gets a little colder in here, we can kill hogs".
Congressman Bob' Sikes stated in his speech at the
new Port St. Joe High School dedication Tuesday that he
was preparing to introduce 'a bill to Congress to limit, the
terms of Justices of the Supreme Court to 'six years and
to require' a two-thirds majority of that body for its rul-
ings to become' effective.
SWe will be anxiously awaiting the newspaper accounts

A six-year term would also allow the freedom of mak-
ing a choice without fear of reprisal by the electors, since
he knows when his term is up. It also would prevent a man
on the bench year after year from becoming farther and
farther removed from the people and reality. The Constitu-
tion was so written to allow for the changing in the attitude
of the people, keeping certain basic freedoms constant. It
is a unique and a flexible document. But the flexibility
needs to be exercised by the mood of the people and not
by the whims of a "group of old men" as Sikes labeled
If Sikes is successful in limiting the terms of the jus-
tices, even though they still occupy an appointive office,
we feel he will have justified his 30-plus years in Congress.
Humm says such a system
would solve our problem for
years to come and in the long
run. prove less costly than our
present system. He suggests that
an application for federal funds
be made for a survey of the pro-
posal to determine its feasibility.
The professor's proposal makes
a lot of sense in, my opinion and
is worthy of serious considera-
tion. But I am wondering if we
could not construct rail lines to
serve the same purpose at far
less cost. Trucks could carry
waste material to railroad cars
for transfer to phosphate pit
areas instead of employing costly

To older people this remark was not lost, but we think that it
went over the heads of some "800 kids most of whom probably
never have seen a live hog in the flesh' and fewer 'of whom
have ever seen a hog killed, scraped and butchered.
The Congressman was remembering nostalgia the kids have
never known nor probably will ever know.
A report came to our attention to this week that was startling
land contained some information that might surprise everyone. The
report was an annual financial statement for the4State of Florida
put out by the' office of Comptroller Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson.
The report showed that the State takes in $648 million from
the sales tax. The next biggest tax take is from gasoline at $213 mil-
lion; beverage taxes are next at $123 million and cigarette taxes at
$108.5 million. That's a lot of money and $1.1 billion of $1.5 billion
taken in by the state from taxes.
The- disbursements side would open a few eyes, too. The mini-
mum foundation program, funding public schools requires $643
million, or practically the entire take from the 4c sales tax. State
universities receive nearly $250 million and highways received an
expenditure of $300' million. Other large expenditures were: Hos-
pitals, Health and Sanitation, $110.5 million; Development and Con-
servation of Natural Resources, $104.3 million; Public welfare, $157
Trash and garbage are becom-
ing a serious problem through-
out the world. As cities grow
and population increases we de-
,velop more and more waste ma-
terial and the problem of dis-
posing of it becomes more acute.
Florida is no exception. Metro-
politan areas such as Miami, Ft.
Lauderdale, Tampa, St. Peters-
burg, Jacksonville and Orlando
are finding the problem more
-and more troublesome and more
and more costly.
We are fast approaching the
point where we will have to se-
parate our tpash, with metals in
one container, paper and card-
board in another and raw gar-
bage in another. Some of this
material can be reprocessed and
used for other purposes. By sal-

help materially in solving our
problem. At least as far as the
Tampa area is concerned, and
perhaps in other areas.
For years the phosphate in-
dustry in South and Central Flor-
ida has been mining material and
leaving large pits. Now comes a
University of South Floridabbio-
logy professor with the sugges-
tion that these uply pits could be
used as garbage and trash dumps.
Both Hillsborough and Polk coun-
ties could join in an effort to do
so and he suggests a series of
barge canals on which barges
could collect waste material and
deliver them to convenient pits
throughout the area. Dr. Harold
Humm, director of USF's Marine
Center in St. Petersburg, con-
tends that, present pits could ac-
commodate garbage for the cen-
tral and west coast areas for the
next 50 years if properly utilized.
Barges could use the proposed
canals to haul trash, garbage and
refuse f6r disposal in pits and
return with cargos of phosphate
for loading on ships in port
areas. He also sees the possibility

Not many "'Homecoming Parades'; can boast a, real live U. S..
Congressman in its caravan, but Port St. Joe High School's par-
ade last Friday afternoon had Congressman Bob Sikes, perched'
atop a convertible, weariig a purple hat presented to him by the 1
Superintendent of Public Instruction, R. Marion Craig. The pre-
sentation of the hat, in the school colors, was made at the dedli-
cation ceremonies of the new high school earlier in the after-
As usual the students went all out in their float construe-
tion, building. several floats which showed artistry, imagination
and a lot of work. Winning first place in the float judging was the
entry of the Senior class, "Spirit of "71" shown at the upper left
of this picture composite. Second place entry was, that of the
Junior Class, "Sound of Victory", upper right. The Eighth Grade
had a very humorous entry which earned third place by the float
judges. Their float, "Flush It" is shown at the ,lower right.
As 'usual, the parade was led by Port St. Joe's marching band
which was ledtby ijts pretty corps of majorettes. The cheerleaders .
again showed imagination by riding over the parade route in a
beach buggy. The parade route was crowded by students, waiting
to see how their floats did in the judging and to add school spirit
to the afternoon. This representation and apprehension was mir-
rored on the face of the girls shdwn bottom right, next to the
eighth grade float photo. .

Congressman Bob Sikes Meets With
Citizens to Discuss Local Problems
Congressman Bob Sikes met
informally with a group of citi-,
zens Friday evening in the Motel
St. Joe to discuss needs of the,
Port St. Joe area.
. While several items were dis-
cussed, the main point brought
out was a fencing in of Cape San
Blas by the Air Force, preventing
access to the beach in -that area.
Sikes said- he had learned
about the objection earlier and
had obtained information as to
just what was to be accomplished
by the fencing operation.
"The fencing is necessary," he
said, "in order to carry on work
for national defense". He went
on to say that the fence would'
have a gate installed and the
gate would be open at all times
except during .the short periods
Sikes was introduced by George
Tapper who also received some
glowing praise from the Con-
gressman. "This man should be
governor of this state", Sikes said
Jimmy Williams spoke of the
act of his father, the late Repre-
sentative Ben C. Williams who
introduced the local bill allocat-
ing funds to finance the school
building program. Williams said
of his father, "This school is one
of his footprints'.
Hubert Richards, District offi-
cial for the State Department of.
Education spoke for Superinten-
,dent Floyd Christian. Richards
charged the students with the
challenge of utilizing the tools
placed at their disposal; the tea-
chers with the admonition that
"the. school 'will never be any
better than the teachers in it"
and parents with "getting involv-
ed" with the school program in
these days of competition and
Superintendent Marion Craig
acted as master of ceremonies
for the affair and presented
Sikes 'with a hat in the school
.colors of purple and white.
"when there is firing and testing
operations going on in the area.
"You will be able to get to the
beach and fishing areas\except
when exercises are being carried
The Congressman said he was
also disturbed by a lack of roads
in this area and planned to see if
"something can't be done about
Some in the audience said they
felt Sikes was too far removed
from people of this area and was
hard to contact. The Congress-
man said this was not so. "Any
of you who need my services can
contact me directly by letter or
telephone and I will be at your
service. My job is to serve you
and I intend to do just that as
long as I am your Congressman."
