Gulf Setting Record
Gulf County ip. well on its way to setting a record-
a record we don't really need or want. Let just one more
person be killed on Gulf County highways this year and
we will have set a record.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Ken
,Murphy, Gulf has set a record in the past of nine traffic
fatalitiepin a. years. The death of Dewayne Neel last Wed-
nesday afternoon in White City, brings the number of
traffic deaths this year, in Gulf County to nine. One
more highway fatality and we will have set a new record.
There's really no excuse for Gulf County, withits
traffic count, to have such a fatality record as we have.
There's not enough of us who pay attention to the traf-
+fic regulation signs. True, disobeying these regulations
hasn't caused all the traffic deaths we have experienced,
but heeding them would have trimmed our record con-
siderably, If only one life had been 'saved by everyone
adhering to the speed limits, stopping at the proper'
signs, etc., it would have been worth the trouble and the
We have killed as many on our streets this year as
has populous Bay County. This is a sad enditoment of
our driving habits and the use of our traffic arteries
It's worth a try for us to be more conscious of our driv-
ing habits. This is a plea which we see daily and im
mediately dismiss as being applied to someone else. I
applies to everyone.
While eveyone4likes to have the most, the best, or
the most elaborate, this is one superlative we can dp with-
out-the "distinction" that would come from setting i
new traff!A fatality record. ."'
We're quick to blame our law enforcement officials
for such records,' when the blame properly belongs t<
'each of us as individuals. The police can't waih every
car that moves for improper driving practices. Then,
too, if we're caught ,disobeying traffic rules, we're quick
to castigate, the police for stopping us when, "we were
driving only five or ten miles over the speed limit and
besides, there was nobody else on the road".
Let's try a little harder NOT to set a record.
spoiled, but still the high rate of public service should be
continued without gouging the tax payer any more than
he has been in the past.
Even though we receive a lot of services from our
tax dollar, we can still count on the fact that there is
some "fat" which could be trimmed. This is what the
We don't anticipate that in Port St. Joe and Gulf
County, anyone will be so brash as the Englishman and
pay their taxes with a check written on a concrete slab.
We do foresee the day when the tax paying public will
vote the present law makers and administrators out of
office should the. past trend continue, tax increases
on a scale which hhirts, and hurts bad. ,The office holder
as well as the tax payer are well aware that there are
more people paying local taxes than ever before and their

Nobody here in Port St. Joe has gone so far, but

City, County and School Board-have decided to take the

Strikes seem to-be paralyzing the nation in every
endeavor from farmers to doctors to candlestick makers.
Before we go any farther, let's set the record straight by
declaring that we are against strikes. True; they may be
necessary at times, but we can't see where any benefits
they might bring to the striking workers can offset the
damage done to them, their employers and innocent peo-
; pie whose livelihood depend on what the strikers pro-
iduce or move.
Everyone in Gulf County is aware that a strike
:threatens the St. Joe Paper Company. We know those
planning to strike dread it. We also know that those
who depend on ,the, mill operating for their livelihood
dread the prospect even more because most of them, don't
have access to strike funds or unemployment compensa-
tion in many instances. So they are left out in the cold,
the victims of something they didn't create.
A prime example of this effect from strikes can vivid-
ly be seen in the case of Basic Magnesia. Basic is not on
strike, but they are shut down because others are. Rail-

rr ad strikes prevent movement of raw products in and
finished products out. Threatened steel strikes have all
but shut down the steel industry and Basic's production
goes primarily to steel mills. So, through no fault of
their own, Porti St. Joe has approximately 50 families
out of work today because of strikes.
We know workmen are desirous of permanence, fair
pay and the growing popular fringe benefits. We know
that some strikes are necessary. But we would ask them
to consider if their getting a little more is worth the
hardship it will throw on innocent people in many
cases, their own friends and next door neighbor.

Midget Investmnts with
Too Late To Classify
By Russell Kay
It is bad enough being con-
stantly warned, threatened, ad-
monished and screamed at hour
after hour and day after day in
radio and TV commercials. Now,
the so-called public service spots
are adding to our misery.
If I were a timid soul I would
be inclined to stay in bed with
the covers pulled over my head
or hide in the closet with a
spray gun in one hand and a re-
peating rifle in the other.
The day is not long enough
for all the things to happen to
me that I am warned about. I
wonder on arising, if I am cou-
rageous enough to do so. Is this
the day my hair will start fall-
ing out? Will my eyes turn red,
my dentures come loose, my
teeth develop cavaties, my feet
start swelling and aching, my
fingers start to stiffen, or my
back begin aching?
Nor is the day long enough
for me to do all the things I am
told to do if I would ward off
these dangers. I must see my
doctor, visit my dentist, brush
my teeth with that, anoint my
hair with this, breakfast on a cer-
tain cereal, bathe with a special
soap or throw the soap away and
use a cream, apply a beard soft-
I by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
All these years... all these many years... I have
adhered to the popular belief that I must wash my hair
regularly, massage the scalp, use the brush liberally, stim-
ulate with the comb and use the right kind of shampoo to
keep my hair from falling out.
All these things have I done from my youth up .
and still my hair falleth out at a faster rate than it grow-
eth in. Like many others, I have psyched myself to look.,
ing forward to the day when it would all be gone and no
longer would I have to shampoo (with the correct sham-
poo) regularly. No longer would the regular brushing
or massage be necessary. Like so many others, I could
look forward to the day when a damp wash cloth once over
lightly in the morning would do the trick.
But, now, according to an article written by Robert
Musel in Science Today, based on information vouched to
by Dr. P. J. Hare (appropriate name) we have been doing
everything wrong; everything that would hasten the
exodus of the hair rather than encourage its hanging
around a while longer.
Dr. Hare has been assigned by the family doctor unit
of the British Medical Association to report on the state
of skin and hair in today's world. He says, in part,
"Many people massage the scalp or rub in hair-restorers
when they are going thin and this friction itself can aggra-
vate the loss of hair. Honest trichologists or hair experts
will confess that they make their money through per,
suading people to stop doing things to their hair which
is harming it rather than by positive forms of treatment."
In other words, it takes an expert to convince you not to do
something to prevent your hair falling out, when the sit-
uation obviously calls for action.
Dr. Hare also said hair care could be too thorough.
"Physical damage to the hair can be caused by over-
enthusiastic brushing, particularly with nylon bristles.
Nylon is hard and makes good pot scourers and studs
for football shoes, but is not a proper instrument with
which to massage the head."
I shouldn't mention something else Dr. Hare said,
since we're selling sunshine here in Florida, but the good
doctor said, "Most people enjoy exposing themselves to
warm sunshine but the amount of good it does is doubt-
ful". He said the skin turning brown from sun exposure
is really a damaged skin trying to defend itself.
Dr. Hare warned against bathing too rigorously and
too often. Every small boy knows this is bad for you.
Dr. Hare says daily washing is necessary but he warns
that scrubbing the skin, bathing or swimming too often
removes the protective scale of the skin allowing it to be
susceptible to fungus infection.
Here's good news for the men from Dr. Hare. He
said that the surface of the skin, the hair and the nails
are dead, and no fancy solutions will make them "alive"
and "pliable". Lard or olive oil will do just as good a
job as that $5.00 a bottle face cream. Tell that to your
wife! '*" .

Port St. Joe Waterways Show
Growth in Freight Traffic Last Year
According to figures released
by, the U. S. Corps of Engineers
office in Mobile, Ala., water
shipping reached an all-time
high during 1970.
Port St. Joe harbor had prob-
ably the biggest increase in ship-
ping,' on the Gulf Coast; record-
ing nearly twide the tonnage re-
ported during the 1969 fiscal
year. Port St. Joe's po t handled

The Gulf County Canal, which
colfiects Port St. Joe .to the Gulf

106 percent increase in tonnage.
The Engineers figures show that
the Gulf County Canal handled
408,73 tons in 1970 and 240,801
tons in 1969.
Port St. Joe's port compared
favorably with 'other Northwest

Jndging by the number of let-
ters I receive, terrariums are be-
coming more popular every day.
A terrarium is a mini-garden en-
closed in a glass container like a
round glass globe, aquarium, large-
mouth bottle or another type of
glass container. Terrariums are
ideal for growing plants indoors
since they create ,a near ideal at-
mosphere for plants which nor-
mally could not stand the dry con-
ditions in most homes. The glass
enclosure produces an atmosphere
of high humidity, protects deli-
cate foliage and allows you to
grow many plants which would
normally not do well indoors.
Terrariums are simple to make
and once planted are easy to main-
tain. The plants will usually thrive
with only minimum care. Choose
a container suitable to the inter-
ior decor. Second, select a con-
tainer which is easy to plant. A
bottle terrarium is certainly a con-
versation piece but it is difficult
to plant unless the opening is
After selecting the container,
place at least one-inch of small pea
gravel in the bottom of the unit.
This produces a water reservoir
in the bottom but allows water
drainage from the media above.
The gravel prevents overwatering
problems. On top of the gravel
place three to four inches of a
good organic soil mixture. One
part peat and one part sand is a
good mix. The soil mixture can be

leveled or molder into slopes an
depressions of various shapes to
produce a natural looking minia.
Select plants which are of suit-
able size for the container and
ones which will not grow so fast
that they have to be removed too
quickly. Small foliage plants and
ferns are ideal but flowers like Af-
rican violets add color and inter-
est. Set the plants at the same
depth they were growing in the
wild or pot.
A glass cover for the terrarium
top is used to keep the humidity
high and to prevent it from drying
out too rapidly., When moisture
condenses on the glass, remove the
top to ventilate the terrarium. Wa-
ter only when the soil surface be-
comes dry and add only enough
water to re-moisten the soil. The
terrarium should be kept in a
shady spot so use plants which
naturally thrive in such an area.
The plants will survive for a long
time wtihout fertilization. Do not
over fertilize or the plants wil
soon outgrow the container.
With a mininium of care you'
should be able to grow lush plants:
in your terrarium and the lustre
and reflection of plants inside
