Now, It's On to Leesburg for Championship Game With Wildwood "Wildcats"
Sharks Calm Green Wave in Second Round
Port St. Joe's Sharks trotted on-
to the football field last Friday
night with" their minds already
made up that they were going,
to win it against the number one
rated' class "B" school in the
state--Father Lopez of Daytona
Beach. And they did; pulling it
out by a goal line stand at the
end of the game to win, 18-16.
Thea Sharks took their deter-
mination; added a super-human
,defensive stand for four downs
inside 'their own five yard line,
and a circus pass from end Per-
ry Atkison across and up the field
to speedy Norris Langston, for a
76 yard scoring play mid-way in
the 1laf period, for what proved
to be the game winning score.
itile Kloskia Lowery, who
left the Bonifay game with an in--
Ken Whittle stretches for a first down at the Father Lopez 48
yard line for a crucial first down Friday night. Whittle ran one
play, substituting for injured Chuck Roberts, and rambled 11 yards
for a key first down in the last period. -Star photo

play Friday night, went all the
way and put the defensive play
on Father Lopez' Mike Dye on a
fourth down situation from the.
two yard line and only 1:20 left
which saved the game.
But there were a multitudee of
heroes in Friday's game.' There
was Jim Faison who threw the
block allowing Langston to score
his second touchdown midway in
the second period, putting the
Sharks ahead, 12-0. There wene
Mike Wimberly, Archie Shackle-
ford, Rodney Nobles and John
Scott who halted Lopez' first push
on the 31'yard line and kept the
Sharks soaring spirits shored up..
There was Lawrence Bowen,
Steve Bass and Perry Atkison
who kept the scrambling of Lo-
pez' quarterback Jimmy Sullivan
Phil Early and Rodney Nobles
spent half the night in the Wave
backfield making things hot for
quarterback Jimmy Sullivan.
The Sharks' first score came
late in the first period. The
Sharks had stopped Lopez on
their first series of downs after
the kick-off and used up over
seven precious minutes of the
clock moving 75 yards on 12
plays for their first, score.
Three times it looked like the
Sharks' drive was stalled, but a
Lopez defender dumped Shark
punter Rex Elliott for d rough-
ing penalty and a first down for
the Sharks. Quarterback Chuck
Roberts kept the drive going
twice on third down, long yard-
age situations by tossing to
Charles Britt and to Eddie Hol-
land, when it seemed the Sharks
would have to give up the foot-
ball. Norris Langston, who did
What was probably his hardest
running of the season, bulled
over from the two yard line for
six points. Langston's attempt at
the two point conversion was
stopped by the big Lopez line.
The Sharks started on their
second scoring drive from their
46 yard line late in the second
period. Chuck Roberts reeled off
a sensational 22 yard gallop
but had it nullified by a clip.
Roberts came right back and tos-
sed a 23 yard pass to Atkison
who caught it on the 12 yard
line while flanked by two Lopez
defenders. On third down, Nor-
ris Langston slid around his left
side to score from eight yards
out, giving the Sharks a 12-0
margin at half-time.
Things started out bad for the.
Sharks in the second half, with
the Green Wave's O'Dell Williams
scoring with only two minutes
gone in the third period. The
score followed a Shark fumble,'
one of two mistakes for the night
both of which led to Lopez scores.
Williams scored for the Green
,Wave running over from six
yards out. Sullivan's pass to Lo-
renzo Smith was good for the two
point conversion. .
The Shark defense came up
with several game saving plays in
the third period, which prob-
ably was the most aggressive for
Father Lope z. Lowery, who
knocked down the game winning
pass also stopped a touchdown
jaunt at the 30 yard line when
he was the last man between
Sullivan and pay-dirt. Chuck

Old familiar number 37, Archie Shackleford, lowers his head
and drives for a tough three more yards, dragging one Lopez Green
Wave defender on his back and in the process of giving a second
one a headache. Lopez' biggest headache, of course, came after the
final whistle had blown and they were shy on the scoreboard.
Interment will follow in the fam-
ily plot at Holly Hill Cemetery.

When the Commission on Obscenity and Pornography
Appointed by President Lyndon Johnson reported recent-
1: it advocated adopting the "Danish solution" to our smnut!
problem, and let' the objectionable material be produced
a"'nd circulated freely to those who wished to purchase it.
Three members of this committee offered a- minority
report, authored by Rev. Mor'ton A. Hill, S. J., to the
." contrary of the majority report. Father Hill wrote in his
report, 'in part: "There's a wild storm of smut buffeting
our country today. It's drowning out good media; it's
choking our culture; it's corrupting our morals". ,
Father Hill's report went on to point to the drganiza-
tion of gangstbrism'behind the production of smut ma-
The majority report said they could 'find no sound,
evidence to link the underworld to the smut wave., The
committee, in effect, wasted the $2 million it spent on ar-
- riving at its.findings since it was charged with researching
ways to legally curb and regulate the traffic in obscenity
it and &pornography. They, instead. encouraged the uncon-
trolled traffic even urging the repeal of present smut con-
tr61 laws. i
The minority report reminded us of another minority
report recorded in the history of the Bible. God had prom-
ised the Israelites the Promised Land. Moses sent out a
scouting party to see if the Israelites could "take" the
land (after God had promised it). The majority report
said, "the people of this land' are too strong for us". The
minority report said, "the land, is a fine place, let's go in
and occupy it .. we can with the help of the Lord".
Of course, everyone who has ever gone to Sunday)
School knows that the Israelites accepted the majority
report, and, as a, result, only those making the minority
report lived to seet God's Promised Land.
It is comforting to us that' our leaders accepted the
minority report in this instance, rather, than that of the
majority. Otherwise, we would surely have suffered the
same fate as the Israelites with one exception. Our Prom-
ised' Land would be taken from us and a place of filth and
degradation, would have taken its, place. '

Port St. Joe's Sharks taught. 'ather Lopez of Daytona Beach
two lessons on the football field Friday night; Two lessons they will
probably not ever forget.
Lesson number one: don't ever belittle a fellow's hometown
with whom. you expect to do battle. He can talk about his own
town, but it's best you keep your mouth shut about what belongs
to someone else.
Lesson number two: Watch out for those hicks ... they'll
beat you when you least expect itl
Like so many of us, Coach Chura of Father Lopez would prob-
ably gladly eat those words he uttered to an Orlando sports writer
last week, if he could but recall them. The words may have made
pretty good reading down Daytona Beach way, but they only made
those "hicks" up here mad .. mad enough to ruin a perfect re-
cord in football and what 'was considered by writers and coaches
over the state to be a sure candidate for the football championship
of the state in Class B.
But all of that's gone now' salted down with a bit of verb-
age. That'll learn ya ... durh ya .'. as we say up here in the
Either Father Lopez or Coach Chura ought to check up on that
fellow who came up here scouting t the' Bonifay game and report-
ed back that Shark Stadium was "right ,across the street from
'the paper mill".. He evidently reported this bit of news twice (to
the newspaper and to Coach Chura). Highway Patrolman Ken Mur-
phy found the group from Father, Lopez-about 15 cars-wander-
ing? around in North Port St. Joe Friday afternoon "looking for
the football field which was right across the road from the paper
Murphy, courteous though ignorant hick that he is, offered to
'guide the motorcade to the new high school and the football field.
The Father Lopez group stayed Thursday night in Tallahassee
and came on here Friday afternoon, arriving just in time to dress
out for the game. Evidently they were fearful of the "smelly old
paper mill", or maybe they thought someone would get lost in 'the
swamp er maybe disappear in one of the many hell-holes of quick-'
sand which usually is found in these out-of-the-way swampy areas.
But, getting back to that Scout who came to Port St. Joe. As
near as I can figure it, without talking to the man, himself, the now
famous--though nameless--cout, arrived in Port St. Joe the night
of the Bonifay game.' Some of the citizens of Port St. Joe must
have been playing softball on the field across the highway from
the paper mill in the stadium next to the Railroad .Office Building.
Seeing 'the lights, he must have stopped to watch the game. If
the men were playing softball he must have thought Port St. Joe
had a mighty big team, but he was no doubt reassured as to the
chances of his school, as obviously, those playing on the field didn't
know how the game of football was played.
Then again, there could have been some kids playing touch
football in the field, as they have been known to do. This too,
would have reassured the scout, since a group of boys playing ob-
viously had no direction; the crowd must have been mighty sparse
so the "school had no backing".

Secretary of State Elect, Richard Stone Says
We Should Recognize Progress Against Pollution
Secretary of State-elect Rich-
ard (Dick) Stone let members of
Port St. Joe's civic clubs know
last Thursday that he, too, was
vitally interested in conservation
and the ecology of the land. Stone
also let it be. known that he was
a "conservationist", and not a
Reminding all his listeners of

just as witty during: his address
which seemed to be more of just

when he reported that he, a resi-
dent of Miami, had Yfinally found
where the Spaniards landed first
in Florida-in St. Augustine or
in this section of the state. "Reu-
bin Askew told me the other
day." he said.
Stone pledged the full support
of his office for progress and
conservation. "But let's not for-
get the progress that already has
been made", he said. The Secre-
tary-elect pointed out that so
many have been crying over the
spoiling of our land, that "hard-
ly anyone has noticed the strides
for conservation, that we have
made in the past few years", he
"Air clean-up is proceeding in
good fashion here compared to
other areas", Stone said. "One

to appreciate what has been done

here. I hardly smelled your 'pay-
roll' when I came to town." He
also congratulated the City and.
lits industry for other clean-up
projects which were on or ahead
The Secretary-elect said that
one of the man roadblocks 'to
conservation is the many and var-
ious agencies that are trying to
manage the abolition of pollution.
"There are more anti-pollution
agencies than there is pollution",
Stone said, "ard all of them are

"It's time we begin-to look at
what's being done right as well
as pointing the accusing finger

noon-time affair by playing a

at the dinner.

Alcohol Will Mar The
Holidays For Manv
beverages will mar the Christmas
and New Year's holiday season for
many motorists unless those who
drink don't drive said the Florida
Highway Patrol today.
With holiday parties in' full
swing, party goers who are driving
should avoid drinking alcoholic
beverages, 'warned Colonel Reid
Clifton, director of the Florida
The Patrol Chief said, "Some
people have the mistaken idea that
alcoholic beverages stimulate the
drinker. On the contrary, alcohol
does not stimulate, but instead it
depresses the central nervous sys-
tem and retards a person's normal
faculties. Only the body processes
can overcome the effects of alco-
hol, and that takes time."
Florida's traffic law requires
drivers arrested for driving while
intoxicated to submit to a chemical
test for sobriety or be subject to
license suspension for a period of
three months. Not only does the
drinking d r i v e r increase his
chances of being involved in an ac-
cident, but he will also lose his
driving privilege upon conviction
for driving while intoxicated warn-
ed the Patrol. .

ing and driving, Colonel Clifton
said, "Watch every move other mo-
torists make and be prepared to

It staggers the imagination when
one realizes that there are trees
on this continent that were in
existence long before the birth of
Christ. Giant cypress and redwoods
that are' still growing at the age
of 4,000 or perhaps 5,000 years.
Trees have long been admired
and enjoyed by mankind for the
shelter they provide and their
grace and beauty. And now it has
become a scientific fact that these
same towering specimens are of
inestimable value to us all in their
round-the-clock ,task of "cycling"
the earth's atmosphere. They ac-
tually breath in man's discharge
of carbon dioxide and replace it
with life-giving oxygen. ,
Interestingly, our admiration of
the trees is greatly enhanced when

we think of still another of their
many -facets the commercial
Our state's forest products in-
dustry ranks second only to tourism
in annual value. Commercial use
of our woodlands has a 1.2 billion
dollar, yearly price tag. From our
forests come more than 5,000 use-
ful products and 100,000 jobs. It
is easy to comprehend these figures
when you realize that more than
50 per cent of all the land volume
in the Sunshine State' is more than
three quarters trees.
Poets and composers have writ-
ten both words and music to extol
the virtues of an array of beautiful
trees. But their works can only add
to the impact that the stately pine
has on Florida.
