Sharks Open Grid Season


Ever since last Nov'emberi, sportiIlovers
in Port St. Joe have waited for September
14. On this date.tomorrow, at 8:00 p.m. the
Port St. High School Sharks will field their
newest version of a football team.
According to head coach Wayne Taylor,
that new team will be laced with five
regular starting veterans from last year.
Returning are regulars, Martin Adkison at
end, Bruce Nixon at guard, Ed Floore at
guard and backs Robert Dickens and Ken
The Sharks will begin their season
against county rival Wewahitchka here in
the local stadium. Wewahitchka made
everyone in this area sit up and take notice
last week in their jamboree with their

scoring ability.
Coach Wayne Taylor said, while he
thought the Sharks were stronger than last
year and had more scoring ability, he had to
remember they' failed to score in the
Jamboree in Crestview last week.
"Defensively we will be rough as
usual", Taylor said pointing out, "We hit
real well in our practice sessions and we
have the manpower" Taylor again recalled
the Jamboree when he added, "We didn't hit
as good in the Jamboree as we did in
Taylor said the team reminds him of
what people were saying about the Miami
Dolphins before last year, "We're, a

- -no-nante' team. We don't have anybody
outstanding, but we're strong and we have
more depth than last year." Taylor said he
suffered no delusions the Sharks would
parallel the Dolphins of last year by going
undefeated. "'We still have to play too many
teams larger than we are in order to
schedule games," the veteran coach said.
He pointed out many AA schools in this area
won't play Port St. Joe and this makes
scheduling rough
This year's scheduling is a little better,
though, with five AA teams on the schedule,
Class A Wewahitchka and four Class AAA
"We're looking for a winning season,"

Taylor said "and with our schedule, we
believe the fans will see some interesting

The Band Parents Associa-

annual Band Calendar Drive.
The purpose of the drive will
be to fund the Band's
activities and to upgrade
One of the major projects
is to purchase a few uniforms
due' to the increase in height
and. number of the senior

high band students. This
year, the band director found
it very difficult to suit all of
the larger boys with uniforms
due to the shortage of large
Another project in mind is
to repair, and in many .cases
replace, the necessary band
instruments, which average

are much older.
Forms will be passed out to
all students to be taken home
and if interested, please fill
out and have returned to the
Band. The prices for the
calendars are $2.00 for the
family plan which includes
birthdays and anniversaries
or $1.00 for a calendar and 25
cents for each entry.

Sponsoring Dance
The Port St. Joe Varsity
Cheerleaders are sponsoring
a dance Friday following the
Wewahitchka-Port St. Joe
football game, September 14.
The dance will be held in
the Commons Area of the
high school from 10:30 till
1:00. Admission is $1.50 per
person. Music will be provid-
ed by Morning Glory.

A settlement was signed
Friday afternoon by three
negotiatating unions and the St.
Joe Paper Company, agree-
ing on a three year pact at
the local industry.
Unions involved were the
United Paperworkers Inter-
national Union, the Interna-
tional Brotherhood of Elec-
trical Workers and the
International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace
Workers, all affiliated with
AFL-CIO. The new contract
with its wages and benefits
were all effective August 1.
The total amount of' the
package increase was in
excess of $1.08 with moderni-
zation adjustments to be
discussed later.
Negotiations were conduct-
ed under the shadow of the
memory of the last negotia-
tions of the unions and
company which resulted in
an eight month strike. Strike
talk during negotiations just
past had the entire com-
munity jittery and anxiously
awaiting word that a contract
had been signed.
Spokesmen for the Unions
were Donald Langham, In-

Approve Property Roll

The County Commission
wanted to set a date at their
regular meeting Tuesday, to
hold their Board of Adjust-
ment hearing so the property
rolls could be accepted, the
tax rate finalized and the
business of preparing the tax
statements for the next fiscal
year cranked off. The hear-
ing is ordinarily held the first
part of September, but
usually stirs very little to no
interest. This year however,
the property valuations have
been hiked 18 percent in the
words of Assessor Samuel A.
Patrick and the Board feels
there will be some objections
to be heard. The Commission
wants to get it over with.

Season Tickets
On Sale Now
Season tickets for all home
football games are available
at the office of Port St. Joe
High School.
School officials urge those
wanting the tickets to get
them as soon as possible and
avoid a last minute rush. The
tickets are on sale for $10.00,
which covers all home
Regular admission tickets
for tomorrow's game will be
on sale at all three drug
stores in town today and

Clerk George Y. Core told
the Commission they didn't
have a roll to adjust as yet.
Attorney Rish then said,
"You can't have a hearing on
adjustment until you get a'
roll to adjust, even if it is
time to do it."
Clerk Core told the Board
Patrick wasn't to blame for
the delay. "The state people
came in to make the
adjustments and they're still
making them every day, tho
they know it's time to get on
with the budget procedure."
Core offered the opinion the
state people were delaying
the completion of their job as
long as possible so the roll
would have to be accepted as
is and possibly adjusted next
year for lack of time to do so
this year.
Attorney Rish then piped
up and said, "That's not
right. The courts have agreed
this is his (Patrick's) duty
and if he lets them continue
to drag out the deadline it's
his fault."
Patrick was then called to
the Board meeting and told
them the assessment roll had
already .been sent to the State
Comptroller's office for ap-
proval, as is the usual
procedure, and should be
returned this week. Patrick
said, "The roll is now
complete and has been

submitted for approval."
The Board then appointed

Charged With

Sheriff Raymond Lawrence
stated that two juveniles
have been apprehended in
Port St. Joe after cashing
checks which were stolen and
Lt. David Rogers, who
handled the investigation and
made the arrests stated that
one of the juveniles was
found by Division of Youth
Services Counselor Jim Boze-
man, and the other was
caught by one of the bank
officials at the Florida First
National Bank, while attemp-
ting to cash another check.
The juveniles had cashed
$175.00 worth of checks
before being caught. Sheriff
Lawrence stated that "we
were fortunate, in that we
were able to catch the pair
the same afternoon the first
check was reported. We could
have had a deluge of bad
checks being passed."
Both subjects were referr-
ed to the Division of Youth
Services for further action.

Controls Relaxed

President Nixon has relaxed the
rules and regulations of air pollution
controls to give some relief to the
pending heating oil crisis this com-
ing winter. The ruling has the effect
.of allowing the use of certain fuel
oils by industry formerly prohibited
due to their sulphur content.
It may seem sort of far-fetched,
Y but we believe the obsession of the
-United States for wanting the entire
,nation cleaned up spotless overnight
'is one of the greater contributors to
.our run-away inflation and shortages
of many items we have always taken
I- for granted as being cheap and plen-
Take paper for instance-the
"taken-for-granted" item we are clo-
-sest too. Newspaper trade journals
,,- (not paper industry controled jour-
?:nals) point out that over 500,000 tons
*. of newsprint production has been
.- taken off the market, due to the
*.-shutdown of several old machines,
'rather than install necessary pollu-
tion control devices. The machines
- would still produce good newsprint,
:.but they were too old to warrant
spending the kind of money needed

to make them acceptable in pollution
control circles.
Everyone knows we couldn't
continue as we were. The recent
cholera outbreak in Italy is a good
arguing point for pollution control.
One must remember, though, Italy
has been densely populated for cen-
turies and is just now. getting down
to pollution controls.
The United States, on the other
hand, is sparsely populated compared
to some other nations, and, to our
credit, we are beginning to worry
about pollution before we really have

that we have reacted too violently.

Drilling Favored

A recent survey by an area daily
newspaper showed that the majority
of the average citizens in the Bend
area favors drilling for oil off the
coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
A sizeable percentage of those
giving their approval stipulated the
.drilling should be allowed only if
adequate safeguards were employed
in the process.
The most powerful voice against
the drilling has been Congressman
Bob Sikes. We can appreciate his
reasons for opposing the operation,
.'but really wish he was on the other
side. Sikes offers the argument the
drilling should continue to be allow-
ed off the shores of Mississippi and
Louisiana and save the off-shore
Florida oil until it is needed more.

Florida needs this oil and gas
now. and so does the nation. Too
long Florida has paid the soaring
prices of transporting every drop of
petroleum products and natural gas
we use to our state. And, of course,
-the nation itself is in the throes now
of an oil shortage and a dangerous
balance of payments situation due to
a lack of domestic oil.
The Arabs are beginning to flex
muscles they think they have to put
us in a box with their oil supplies-
a situation, we know, Mr. Sikes can-
not tolerate.
We say go ahead with the drill-
ing. First-hand reports we have had
from Mississippi and Louisiana say
it does nothing but good for the state

At Least One

We notice in the papers Gover-
nor Reubin Askew had the opportun-
ity in recent weeks to name a new
member to Florida's Department of
Pollution Control probably the
toughest in the nation.
Governor Askew selected a lady
from Miami for the job, whose name
escapes us at the moment. The thing
that hasn't escaped us is the fact she
was selected because she was one of
the best known conservationists and
environmental protectionists in the
State of Florida.
It may not be so in this case, but
each time we see this definition given
we picture a little old lady in tennis
shoes demanding we wave a wand
over all our wastes and make it dis-
appear. The point is that as long as

humans inhabit this earth, they will
have need of its resources to sustain
and protect life. In the process they
will create waste. The problem is to
arrive at a method of using the re-
sources to the best advantage and
dispose of the wastes in the most ef-
fective manner.
The arch-protectionists method
of protecting by not using can't be
accepted by the people.
It would seem to have been the
better choice if Governor Askew had
appointed at least one member to the
Department of Pollution Control who
is interested in the proper 'USE of
our resources and adequate disposal
of our wastes. Thus Americans
could continue with the good life and
the protection of their future.

The Gulf County Sheriff's
Auxiliary is ready to begin
"Operation Identification"
throughout Gulf County, Cap-
tain Emmett Daniell said
For those of you who have
yet to receive the pamphlets
currently being distributed to
all Gulf Countians, "Opera-
tion Identification" is a
concept designed to make
burglary a harder crime to
commit, by increasing the
possibility of being appre-
It is a system whereby the
citizen has his drivers'
license number, social secur-
ity number, or some other
positive identifying marks
on all valuables like televis-
ions, stereo equipment and
the like. This posts a warning
for all potential burglars, in
that if they get caught with
property that contains these
identifying marks, it will be a
positive proof of ownership,
and will make it easier to
gain convictions when cases
go to court.
Sgt. Tom Berlinger, project
coordinator for the Gover-
nor's Help Stop Crime in Gulf
County, stated that the
program has been instituted
in many heavily populated
areas of the country and has
met with much success.
"We feel-that this project
will hinder the potential
burglar in Gulf County,"
Sheriff Raymond Lawrence
stated, "he will know that it
will not be easy to deal in
stolen property which is so
easy to idefitify later."
Those persons interested in
having their valuables en-
graved free, may do so by
calling the Sheriff's office at
227-2311 and making an
appointment for any Satur-
day in the future.


I was talking to a representative of MK
Ranches the other day and he said the farming
and cattle operation here in Gulf'County would

million dollars worth of soy beans tomorrow off
former Gulf County swamp land.

begin tomorrow on MK's fields West of Wewa-

to the Howard Creek area holdings of the firm.
The harvest will continue on until early De-
When you consider the soy bean operation
is merely a sideline with the operation, one can
see MK Ranches is making quite an economic
impact on Gulf County, utilizing land that was
considered practically worthless for years.
In addition to the soy beans, the corn,-,thet
winter wheat-and the feed grains, the firm is now:,

own of nearly a thousand young heifers.

To The Editor

Dear Wesley,
The Port St. Joe Jaycees
would like to take this means
of recognizing the boys who
broke into the Little League
Concessions Stand to help
themselves to the drinks and
We would especially like to
recognize the two boys who
tore up the front d6or of the
stand. We know who they are
and actually we were sur-
prised at these two boys. Why
should they take care of the
concession stand? After all, it
belongs to them. The Jaycees
are only building it.
We have spent many long,
hard hours to build this stand
so they can enjoy it at their
ball games. Why they want to
destroy something which is
for them we'll never know.
If the two boys who
damaged the door play ball
as good as they tear up
doors, they will be outstand-
ing players. They did a good
job and both of them play
Little League ball.
Hoping this letter will
make them stop, think and
appreciate what they have, I

am very truly yours,
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
The purpose of this letter is
more or less to just say Hi to
the Star and to the people of
the Port. I miss the "Home of
the Fighting Sharks" and it
people very much.
So far I have managed to
keep in touch with St. Joe
through the mail. Being stuck
way up here so far from the
area that I was born and
raised in, one comes to know
the true meaning of the value
of friendship.
Life at the Academy is
quite demanding and is a
drastic change from the life
of a Florida Beach Bum but I
guess I had to grow up
sometime. I can assure you
that Port St. Joe is on the
map up here because this is
one country boy who has
ventured to the city and is
proud of his origin.
So here is wishing the
people of St. Joe a wonderful
Waiting on Christmas Leave,

Mayor Pate Proclaims

Constitution Week



Lt. Governor Tom Adams was married last
week end to his mountain lass of 23 years. By
now Adams and his bride are well into their hon-
eymoon. I don't know where they have gone or
how long they'll stay. But I do know that with
Adam's $30,000 plus state salary and his respon-
sibility to do nothing will allow them the money
and the time to go where they want to and stay
as long as they like.
You can't blame Adams for this, though. He
didn't set the salary, nor did he divest himself of
his duties. Adams had his duties removed by
Governor Askew for alleged improprieties in of-
fice. So who is being punished for these so-
called improprieties? Certainly not Tom Adams.
There have been rumors that Adams will
bounce back next year and run for everything
from U. S. Senator to Governor of the State of
Florida. The prudent thing for him to do would be
to hold on to the gravy train he now has; but,
Governor Askew has already announced Adams
will not be his running mate next year.
One thing is for sure, though. You can look
out for old Tom. Any 56-year-old man who has
the courage to marry a 23-year-old woman has
the determination to try anything. So, don't
be surprised at what race Adams happens to turn
up in during 1974.

Society Story

One of Effort

The story of the St. Joseph'
Historical Soceity is one of
dreams of long-standing
finally brought to fruition
through years of effort,
appeal, study, investigation,
and hard work.
The beautification of the
old cemetery, the building of
the lovely gazebo, the install-
ation of the fence surround-
ing these hallowed grounds
and the beautiful wrought
iron sign above the,, entrance
are only a few of the accom-
plishments of this small body
of dedicated citizens.
Last week's issue of The
Star carried the story of the
"face-lifting" of the Museum
in Constitution Park and the'
installation of three new
display cases. .This is the
realization of another dream
of long standing.
For a number of years the
St. Joseph Historical Society
has kept in storage many
relics and artifacts and other
materials of great historical
value simply because of the
lack of display area. The
group has been most anxious
to put these articles on
display and finally secured
state appropriation for the
construction of the most
needed cases and changes in
the museum to accommodate
them to the best advantage.
At last, they are ready for
public view.
.Among the things on
displayin the new cases are
household goods such as bone
buttons, a milk glass drawer
pull, 19th century table
spoons, bottles and, part of a
whiskey jug, a, preserve jar,
a faceted tumbler, a ladle,
bowls and plates and parts of
a tureen cover, a small iron
pot, a large iron pot and
other things.
There is also a whiskey jug
found in Old St. Joseph and
presented to the museum by
Tomm Dees. Personal items
include a gold ring found in:.
this area'by Ted Richards of
Highland View. A gold watch

case, a U.S. penny of the 19th
century used either as a
watch fob or on a necklace.
Many coins have been
donated-an 1840 penny, con-
tributed by Mrs. Herman
Dean, and 1841 dime, the gift
of R. D. Prows, and an 1822
.penny given by Mr. and Mrs.
B. F. Harmon of Chicago.
United .States coins (cop-
per) presented by Jake Belin,
an 1835 coin a very large
penny given by St. Joseph
Historical Society. Other pen-
nies were dated 1838 and
1848. One of the new case is
used for Spanish artifacts,
including a Spanish brick.
Mrs, Elizabeth K. Ehrbar,
Supervisor of Exhibits of the
Department of Natural
Resources, who has been
doing the work at the
Museum, is hoping for more
things for display-any relics,
papers, maps, pictures, or
other items pertaining to the
Civil War, .any Spanish or
Indian relics relating to this
period, arrowheads. or any-
thing else of interest.
She is especially interested
in securing items pertaining
to the Signers of the Consti-
tution or belonging to them.
She is also interested in
locating a table dating back
to the early 1800's for the
display of some most inter-
esting articles-a gold ink-
well, a scroll and other
articles. Mrs. Ehrbar is
planning to attend the next
meeting of the society.
Mrs. R. H. Brinson has
been appointed by the St.
Joseph Historical Society as
representative to the Mus-

"The Return," a new color
documentary filmed in the
Middle East will be shown at
First Baptist Church on
September 19, at 7:30 p.m.
This film documents' the
formation of the new nation
Israel which, by all the laws
of men and nations, is impos-
sible. This ancient yet new
nation now stands with both
feet firmly planted in the
very center of the world.
Surrounded by her enemies
and the sea,, israel is totally
unique in history for she is an
integral part of history.
To a growing number of
scholars throughout the world
it seems her return to
nationhood is the beginning of
the fulfillment of her predict-
ed destiny among the nations
of the earth. "The Return"
retells the events leading to
the final hours of the world's
history as the curtain opens
and the drama begins with
Israel the stage where
mankind's most profound
performance may be played.
Produced by the Evangeli-
cal Communications Re-

search Foundation, "The
Return" is being released
through Gospel Films. Inc. of
Muskegon, Michigan.
The pastor, Rev. DeWitt.T.

vites the public to attend.

Father David O'Shea, pas-
tor of St. Joseph's Catholic
Church and a native of
Ireland, gave the Rotarians a
short history of what's behind
the unrest and fighting in
Ireland, at their meeting
O'Shea said the root of the
problem goes back in
history to the 1600's. At this
time in history the British
conquered the Irish when
lords in the country began to
get too strong for British
comfort. The lands were
owned in large parcels and
the owners rich and powerful.
The British broke up the
large land holdings and
passed laws making it illegal
for an Irishman to own land
and instilled several other
harsh laws against the Irish,
who were mostly Catholic,
while the English were
Protestant. The British turn-
ed land ownership over to
Protestants. This, naturally
caused resentment.
Early in the 20th century
British subjugation was sof-

tened and the Irish were then
largely a contented people
since they could see a
gradual bettering of their
situation. The people would
not marry young and :stirt
families because they
could see no future in the
largely agriculture economy.
In the 1950's and 1960's
things began to change again.
Ireland began to attract new
industry with its tax adva-
tages and the economy
changed to about half and
half, agriculture and indus-
The resulting better wages
made the Irish restless again
and they wanted more
relaxation of the civil rights
laws to allow them more of
the good things of life
including land ownership.
The working class was now
able to earn money and they
wanted something permanent
to spend it on.
Even so, O'Shea said the
troubles were caused by a
small minority, the majority
seeing continued progress

-Agreed to build a short
road at Howard's Creek when
a right of way was available
to enable Gulf Coast Electric
to better serve several
electric customers.
-Instructed Attorney Rish
and C. E. Daniell to contact

pany to see why a four-wheel
drive vehicle, ordered in
February, has not been
-Agreed to grade the air
strip at Jones Homestead.
-Studied a recommenda-
tion from the Department of
Transportation that several
bridges on dirt roads in the
County needed repairs.
-Received notification
from the DOT that speed
limits were being changed on
U.S. 98. The new limits will
be 45 miles per hour from
June to Labor Day and 65
miles per hour from Labor
Day to June.
.. -Received notice from the
Division of Health and
Rehabilitative Services to
pay bills for indigents placed
in hospitals and nursing
homes in the state. The. State
says the County now owes
$18,222.25 and the County
says they owe nothing 'since
they weren't even consulted
on the expenditure. The State
says they will sue and the
County has said, "Go ahead
and sue."

trash. We need fills now in
order to begin preparing
them for use", Daniell said.
Commissioner Walter Gra-
ham decided the Board could
catch more flies with sugar
than vinegar and offered the
suggestion that the County
erect appropriate signs at
each fill area telling the
public who had supplied the
land for the fill area:.

One of the main problems
of the Commission in. this
area are fill areas for the
area north of Wewahitchka
and in the Beaches area.
Daniell said new areas will
soon be necessary for the
Port St. Joe area as well.
The County Board has been
reluctant in the past to
exercise its new powers of
passing Ordinances under the
new Home Rule law of the
State of Florida.
A problem at the last
meeting of the Board
prompted Commissioner
Graham to call for an
Ordinance against animals
which are harmful to persons
or property in the county.
The Ordinance was prompted
by a complaint of a dog in the
Highland View area biting
children, and there was
nothing the County could do
about it under their law.
The Board instructed At-
rorney Rish to prepare a
sample for their next regular
Rish said, "I'm ashamed to

discussed the recent revalua-

appraise homes and property
in Gulf County.
The Clerk read a resolution
from Okaloosa County oppos-

has allowed the Department

(AFNS) The rule for
numbering boats is quite
simple. Any boat that is mech-
anically propelled by a motor in
excess of 10 horsepower must be
numbered and licensed in the
State of Florida. A motor boat is
numbered for the same reason
your car is numbered, to
identify it; and boats are
registered and numbered in
much the same manner that a
car is registered. Just as the
weight determines the cost of
registering a car, the length and
class determines the cost for
.registering and licensing a boat.
Once your proper forms are
obtained from a state agency,
fill out and return them with the
appropriate fee, a certificate of
numbers will be received, and
these numbers must be put on
the bow of your boat in a certain
way. For further information on
registering your boat consult
your local Tax Collector.
The numbers and letter must
be permanently attached to the
forward part of your boat close

to the bow. They must be in
block characters, in a color that
contrasts with the background,,
and not less-than three inches in
height. Mount them on both
sides of the bow, always reading
from your left looking at the
appropriate side, to the right
with state letters first. Make,
sure you leave a space between
the first letters and numbers
and the last number and letters.
Fancy, and-or oddly placed
letters pnd numbers will not be
accepted by the Florida Marine
Patrol, and would just delay you
when you are on a very pleasur-
able fishing or boating cruise.
Always carry your certificate
of numbers when you are using
your boat, that's the first
thing the Florida Marine Patrol
will want to see when inspecting
your boat. If you sell or transfer
your boat, you have to turn in
your certificate of numbers,

and if the' boat remains in the
same state, the same number is
issued to the new owner.

State Chamber Executive Urges

Off-Shore Drilling be Allowed

The Federal' Government's
proposal to lease areas in the
outer continental shelf off
Florida's coast line for oil
drilling purposes should be
allowed as long as full and
complete efforts are made to
protect the environment and
control any ..development
which may come about as a
This was Florida State
Chamber of Commerce Ex-,
ecutive Vice *President Ron-
ald S. Spencer's advice to a
panel of U.S.. Department of
Interior officials who con-
ducted a hearing into the
question lasFC':week in Talla-
"Certainly the importance
of protecting Forida's coast-
line from environmental
damage must be of prime
importance but the impact of
producing oilwells and sup-
port facilities ofithe economy,
of Northwest Flbrida cannot
be overlooked,"!'Spencer not-
ed in his testimony before
panel Thrusday
He said "Th-e economic
impact which-' would come
about if oil 'explorations are
successful in the offshore
areas would create a need for
new wharf facilities, tank
farms, separators and pos-
sibly Florida's first oil
refinery. Effects of the new
development would stretch
from Tampa Bay to Pensa-
cola with a good possibility
for emphasis in the long
depressed Port St. Joe area.
"Some residents of Florida
will view this prospect with
delight while others will be
quick to push the alarm
button calling forth all forms
of no-growth efforts," Spen-
cer said. .
"But the true question
involved in this& proposal is
not over the old growth-no
growth problem. Rather, I
believe it is one of survival....
can Florida remain at the
end of the oil pipeline and
still survive; 'can our country
continue to increase purchas-
es of Mideast'oil indefinitely
withoutt increasing domestic
reserves and still survive? In
other words can we afford

not to drill for oil offshore
and still survive?" he added.
In appearing before the
federal panel, Spencer pre-
sented a report prepared ;by
Dr. William Johnson, Energy
Advisor to the Chairman of
the President's Oil Policy
Committee. The report was
in answer to ten 'questions
about the offshore drilling
problem prepared by the
State Chamber following a
symposium on the gasoline

shortage in July.
"This report does not hold
the production of oil from
offshore drilling up as a
panacea for the gas and oil
shortage. But it does point
out the extreme importance

Are Paid


Social security benefits
were being paid to. residents
of Gulf- County at a rate of
$170,000,00 a month at the
close of 1972, Robert M.
Latta, Social Security Repre-
sentative for Gulf County,
said today.
Of the social security
benefif~iries living in Gulf
-County, 761 are retired work-
'ers and their dependents.
Another 410 are receiving
benefits'-as the survivors of
workers who have died, and
244 are getting benefits as
disabled workers or, their
Latta. pointed out that
although most social security
beneficiaries are older peo-
ple, about one out of every
four is under age 60. In Gulf
County, 514 people under age
60 are' collecting social
security payments father or

mother has died or is getting
social security disability or
retirement benefits. Most of
the 38 beneficiaries in Gulf
County between 18 and 22
years of age, are getting
student's benefits .under a
provision in the social secur-
ity law permitting the contin-
uation of a child's benefits
beyond his 18th birthday, and
up to age 22, if the child is
attending school full time.
Also in this 18-22 age group,
Latta said, are some other
types of beneficiaries, illus-
trating the broad family
protection that the social
security program provides
workers of all ages. Some are
children of retired, disabled,
or deceased workers who
became disabled before they
reached 22 and who will
probably never be able to
work and become self-sup-
porting. The monthly benefits

of these young people,
severely handicapped by
physical or mental disabili-
ties, will continue indefinite-
ly. Benefits are also payable
to the mother if the disabled
son or daughter is in -the
mother's care.

Latta said that another
relatively small but signifi-
cant group of youthful social
security beneficiaries are
those who are receiving
benefits as disabled workers.
