approximately 10,000 congre-,
gations of the Church of God

FHA State Director Claude
L. Green, Jr., of Gainesville
informed the County Com-
mission Tuesday night by
letter that loan money is once
again available for financing
of a water and sewer district

still express a desire for the

been withdrawn last year due
to the fact the District
couldn't sign..up enough cus-

chairman S. C. Player not-

Joe is planning to survey the
area to include Oak Grove in
its water system under an
expansion program, if the
move is feasible, and he felt
the County should sit tight

vey is known. "We must
depend on Port St. Joe for a
water supply, anyhow, and
for disposal of sewage, so we
should wait and see what
they find out before answer-

Commissioner Walter, Gra-
ham stated, "The people of
Oak Grove have been built up
too many times in this matter

and I don't want them to be
slapped down again. I won't
agree to any plan until I see
it in writing."

Motorcycles Create A

Touchy Problem

The City Police and the City
Commission have a touchy problem
here in Port St._Joe.
The motorcycle craze has hit
Port St. Joe, just like is has
everywhere else. Police and City
Commissioners are not desirable of
being a "Scrooge" and forbidding
their operation in the City. Rather,
both bodies have encouraged their
< operation off the City streets by
those inelligible to ride on the
A big problem has arisen. The
kids of all ages on all size of bike
can barely be avoided at times on
any street in the City anyone
wishes to travel. The Police and
Commission are concerned about
this because it is illegal. It is
illegal because it is dangerous.
The Police DepRa

young children, even though they,
are disobeying the law and creating
a danger to themselves. Already,
they have taken steps on several
occasions to get the kids and their
cycles off the streets, only to meet

indignation from the parents.
As it appears to us, parents of
children with these motorized bikes
should supervise their operation by
the children or make sure they stay
parked. In many cases, where the
parent is not directly supervising,
the machines are gradually worked
to the roads, where the riding is
smoother. Either this is the case,
or parents are deliberately allow-
ing and encouraging their children
to break the law.
When some child of a tender
age becomes mangled or killed in a
cycle accident here in Port St. Joe,
the first howl which will be heard
will be, "Why hasn't the Police or
the City done something about this
before an accident happened?" The
answer is, of course, that the Police
and City can do nothing very
effective unless they have the co'*
operatiii of,T-ith i, parents, ,jp thj
matter. We know the kids get a
thrill out of riding the bikes. We get
no thrill at all out of writing stories
where they have been mangled up
or killed in a collision with an

Maybe one of the reasons Wa-

attention is the *unusual motive
behind the crime. We're not ac-

We are more than accustomed to

good of the individual involved.
In Mr. Christian's case, he has
already decided he will not seek
another term. This is just as well
since even the hint of a crime being
committed in connection with a
public official leaves a bad taste in
the mouth of the voter, even though
the official be proven innocent.

One fine summer morning
in 1922, me and Jimmie were
playing catch down by Mr.
Owens' store; A young man
who had caught a ride on the
Charocola truck from Apa-
lach came: over and intro-
duced himself as Tiny Tony
Farentina and asked Jimmie
if we could get up a team to
play against his club. I was a
visitor here in those days and
Jimmie did all the negotiat-
ing and t was decided that
Tiny's teAm would come over
the following Saturday.
Our line-up turned out to be
the following, known as the
St. Joe second team. The
catcher was Stetson Prid-
geon; Chalk McKeithen was
pitcher, Norton Kilbourn,
first base, Buck Montgomery,
second, Jimmie Kilbourn,
short stop; Tommy Owens,
third base; Ed Pridgeon in
left; Chauncey Costin in cen-
ter and Orin Miller in right
field. Buster Owens was the
utility man on the bench and
could play any position.
I won't go into details about
the game but we were pretty
evenly matched until Acey
McKeithen got to teasing our
pitcher and when Chalk got
mad that left foot would go
up a little higher and when it
came down the ball he threw
would look like an aspirin
tablet and pop into Stetson's

pn all comers and beat most
of them.
The old ball park was
where the Colored field is
now. Saturday night after we
beat Apalach, me and Jim-
mie were celebrating and
swiped one of Uncle Max's
old International trucks and,
as it was bright moonlight,
we didn't bother to light the
carbide headlights.
We drove it to the ball park
and run it around the bases
about a dozen times. The
following Monday we were
shooting a game of pool and
Mr. West, who was deputy
sheriff of- calhoun County and
t. Joe town marshall told us
to get the hell out of there if
we weren't twenty-one and
jf we were, he'd "take us
down thar" and lock us up if
we didn't pay two dollars
street tax.
Needless to say, he won
that argument. "And one
more thing, boys," he said as
we were going out, "if you
buggars, had missed home
plate one time with that
damn truck the other night,
I'd a locked both of you up in
the callaboose."
We took off.

-The leak which has
plagued the Courthouse for
the past several years was
discussed again with no ac-
tion. The Board has agreed to
the fact the leak is coming
from the second story wall
where it joins the ground
floor and needs caulking, but
no order has been given to
have it fixed.

The mailed applications
must be postmarked no later
than March 31 or the applica-

Watching a special on TV the other night, I
saw James Whitmore come on with his famous
imitation of Will Rogers. I only caught it by
accident, since it has been my experience that
most of the "specials" are nothing more than a
filler to fill up some time on TV which there
was nothing else to fill.
To be fair, we in the newspaper business do
that too. There are times when there is an
empty space in a column or on a page which
there is nothing to fill. We can't leave the space
empty, no more than TV can just let the.
network run blank. So we reach for a filler.
As I said, it was by accident I caught
Whitmore, and as usual, I enjoyed it, since I
enjoy all of the sayings and writings of Will
At the end of his monologue, Whitmore
quoted a favorite saying of Rogers' where he
says he has talked with, poked fun at and
mocked nearly all of the big shots and:
politicians of his time but he never met a
man he didn't like.
The point I'm getting at is this. Do you
suppose Rogers could make this same claim
about our breed of Washington politicians of
It would be a hard thing to do. It would
take some working at.

Speaking of politicians, I was involved with
one of Gulf County's best last Friday afternoon
for a little while.
George Tapper called me out to the
Country Club to take a few publicity pictures
for a kids fishing rodeo the Country Club is
going* to sponsor next month. George brought
one of the little fishermen, his daughter, Trish
and Bill Barlow, George's helper in the project
had brought another fisherman, his daughter,
Vicki, the poles and the worms.
George baited up Trish's hook and Bill
baited Vicki's. After a while, George tried to
deepen Trish's hook in the water by running
the cork up on the line. The cork was too loose
to stay where he put it, so George asked, "Does
anybody have a match?"
I know that you, like me, thought George
..only knew how. to make-.money.andjmane. vei
in the political world. I didn't think' lhereaiy
knew anything useful like how to stop a fishing
cork from slipping up the line, nor how to bait
a hook, or go deeper if the fish weren't biting
shallow. But, he surprised me. He knew all of
this. To show the vast scope of his knowledge,
he knew that a match stem was the proper
thing to reach for if the cork was slipping.
I'll never sell George short again.

We finally. got that shower we have needed
for so long. My luck must be turning, too, since
I had just put my tomatoes in the ground two
days before. Of course, I had also planned to
make my first trip after the shellcrackers
Saturday afternoon, too. It'll be easier to go
after the shellcrackers later than it will be to
either haul water to the tomato plants or plant
them over.

I saw a little article and picture in the
Milton Press-Gazette last Thursday of publish-
er Jim Martin holding an eight pound bass he
had caught. Martin said he had caught the bass
on an apple flavored salamander.
Willie worked at the P-G for a year while
he was going to college, and, among other
things, he described Martin as being sort of
crazy. Never having met the Milton mentor I
couldn't verify Willie's description. But reading
where he described the flavor of his bass bait, I
accept Willie's description. After all, when was
the last time you tasted your bass bait?
I use a sexy Yellow Sally or a colorful
Hawaiian Wiggler, myself when fishing for
bass, and so far as I know they are tasteless.

i Rambles
By W. C. Roche

One advantage of small cars is that you can squeeze
twice as many of them into a traffic jam.

The best some of us can expect on the day of
judgment is a suspended sentence.

Engineers are trying to build a car that will stop
smoking. While they're at it why don't they come up
with one that will stop drinking, too?

Diplomacy is telling your wife that her beauty
makes time stand still, instead of advising her that her
face would stop a clock.

A flea circus may be a good act, but it takes
termites to bring down the house.

Try shopping at Roche's. You'll be
glad you did.

Two More Wins

Port St. Joe entertained
conference foe Crestview last
Tuesday and came away with
a hard-fought 2-0 win over a
good Crestview team. Port
St. Joe was held scoreless the
first four innings, but pushed

inning with a single. He ad-
vanced to third base on a
passed ball by the catcher.
Kenneth Weimorts followed
with a base on balls. With
men on first and third, Cha-
son and Wei46rts executed a
forced balk play. When the
pitcher took his stretch,
Weimorts broke from first
base. The pitcher stepped off
and threw to second and
Chason scored from third.
This was the only run Reg-
gie Gilbert needed as he shut
Crestview out on five scratch
hits, while fanning 11 and
giving up two bases on balls.
The Sharks scored again
when Luke Weimorts reached
first on an error. Mark Wim-
berly ran for Weimorts, steal-
ing second, advancing to
third on a passed ball and
scoring on an error by the
Bulldog shortstop.
Leading hitters for the
Sharks were Russell Chason
with two hits and Kenny
Weimorts with one. The

morts with two singles and a

son each had two base hits

Students 18 and over get-
ting monthly social security
checks will soon get an atten-
dance reporting card that
should be filled out and re-
turned to social security as
soon as possible, according tp
Robert Latta, Social Security
Representative for Gulf
Social security reporting
cards are mailed to students
getting social security pay-
ments about three months
before the end of the school
year. "The information on
the attendance report helps
us decide if the student can
continue to get monthly
checks," Latta said.
Delay in returning the
reporting card can mean a
delay in future social security
payments, he said.
Full-time students 18 and
over who remain unmarried
can get monthly social secur-
ity checks'until they're 22 if a
parent gets social security
payments or if a parent has
died after working long
enough under social security.
"A college student who
hasn't earned an undergrad-
uate degree can continue to
get social security payments
through the end of the semes-
ter or quarter year in which
he reaches 22," Latta said.
"If the school doesn't use the
semester or quarter system,
students can continue to get
social security payments
until their course is com-
pleted-or until two months
after they reach 22, which-
ever is earlier."
About 650,000 students in
colleges, high schools, and
trade schools get monthly
social security payments.
"Any student in this area
who needs help with the
attendance report or informa-
tion about social security
benefits can call,. write, or
visit any social security
office," Latta said.
The office for this area is
located at 1316 Harrison Ave.,
Panama City.

introduced rioting, assassi-

has become a century in
which we begin to ask, 'Can

well have begun in Genesis, or
maybe even before. But the
simple fact is that snakes have
never had a decent break in
the press.
This is not to say that the
average snake is particularly
appealing, and it almost goes
without saying that most of
us would find a close relation-
ship with one of these crea-
tures beyond the realm of
But it is, nonetheless, a
fact that most of us harbor
many untrue notions and
many unreasoning prejudices
against one of the most useful
of Nature's creatures.
Exothermal is a ten dollar
word meaning "taking heat,
or losing it, to the environ-
ment". It is the scientific
word that describes those
creatures the layman usually
classifies as "coldblooded". It
is interesting to note that
Florida may have more ver-
tebrate exotherms than any
other equal area in ithe world,
with 333 kinds of reptiles,
amphibians, and fish.
But while there are no
poisonous lizards in Florida,
and no poisonous am-
phibians, our state does host
four poisonous reptiles, and
all four are snakes. These are
the rattlesnakes (three kinds),
the copperhead, the cotton-
mouth, and the coral snake.
Yet, while the words "poi-
sonous snake" generally
r. strike fear into the hearts of
most of us, it is a fact that, of
the 2,400 different kinds of
snakes known, only some 200
are dangerously poisonous to

Yet, most of us with any
good sense would like to
avoid being snake bit if at all
possible. But consider this:
during one four-year period
of study, 215 people in the
United States died as a result
of bites and stings. Of that
number, 86 died as the result
of bee and wasp stings, and
71 died from the bites of
venomous snakes.
The question seems to be,
is being bit by a snake as
terrible as time and legend
have made it? Your answer
might well be different if you
were talking objectively
about snake bite, or if you
had just gone through the
agony that is usually a part of
any venomous bite. But, in
either case, you would recog-
niz/e that your chances of
dying are not nearly what
folklore have made them.
For example, it has been
estimated that probably over
75' of bites by poisonous
snakes are not fatal in any
case, and that perhaps 98% or
more cases recover if ade-
quate treatment is given:
So what does all this
prove.' Just that once again,
mankind has turned a jaun-
diced eye toward an un-
deserving object of scorn.
When the good is weighed
against the harm factor,
snakes deserve to be con-
sidered as a valuable natural
resource, and not the devil's
advocate. It isn't easy to
recognize personal prejudice,
and it seems almost im-
possible at times to change it.
But it can be done.

Blue Denim In Hot Demand; Makes Strong Bid for Market
