'> The first Presidential Proclamation of a day of
'Thanki-;gir ,; in the United States was:made by George
Wazb,,s gt',rii 1789. Th day was set aside for prayers
and thanks for the new Constitution. Several states
,-continued the practice, each designating its own day.
Abraham Lincoln was the first President'to appoint
an official Thanksgiving Day, to', be .eii.rn .te J each
year on the last Thursday of November. Lincoln issued
the Proclamation oni October 3, 1863. ,Since that time
the Nation has joined, on one day, in saying its prayers
'of Thanksgiving, and in remembrance of the small band
of religious fugitives who landed it Plymouth Rock.
A fact too ,often forgotten concerning the Pilgrim
Fathers is their trial and abandonment of the com-
mumi.ld sy.' r'i n of joint ownership and community labor
in the colony. A. primary reason for their early hard-
ships -on the North American continent was the effort' to
form a ,,,.i-ihlt society. .
At 'first, the young uloniy snmeil to be working,
foll.-wi.g the i'..: ', I :.' % .,-.m;. r. tr- colony went into
a tailspin. Many found that under the system all shared
equally so that not a few. lyn, to absent itmsenIves
from the fields. Naturally they feigned illness and natur-
ally the number of absentees increased.,
The crops failed, and the "starving time" son fol-
lowed. Things became so bad in 1623, just three years
after they had landed, that the best they could provide
for. new arrivals from the mother country, was a freshly-
caught fish, a lobster and a cup of water. It was a dis-
astrous come-down after the bountiful feast of 1621,
when they had hosted Chief Massasoit and 90 of his
And so it was that in that same year of 1623, Governor
William Bradford, at the urging of the governing council,
established the free enterprise system and the Plymouth
Plantation began to groW. and prosper.
The Pilgrims had learned their lesson the hard way.
But, from the agony of "the starving time" there has
grown the most productive and wealthy civilization that
the world has ever known. In Thanksgiving, it has shared
the product of its hard work with i.rtuajll every nation
in the world.
At this season of the. year, with its emphasis on the
role faith in God has played in our nation and its great-
ness, it might be a good thing to pause and give thought '.
to an interesting survey taken in Montana recently, and
which we saw ,- i,.r-. S not long ago in "a i,' ',".'.
Andy Anderson, Editor-Publisher of the Columbus
(Montana) News reports an interesting: '-.. taken by
a group of Christian youths in the Columbus area and
probably could be equalled in any community in the na-
tion today including Port St. Joe. All i.;.e.- r they ques-
tioned 100 people and what they learned raises many ques-
Seventy-six folks said they were members of a reli-
gious group; 20 -said no; three said they used to be but
quit and the rest said they were in the process of joining.
However, Although more than three-quarters of those
surveyed claimed church membership, only six said they,
attended more than once a week (which, we suppose, would

Have you ever wondered how
standards in education are set?
We should be as interested in
who decides the "Goals of Flor-
. idians" in education as the ones
who announce them. '
If we are told that our public
'school children fell below pub-
lic school children in other states
in regional testing in mathema-
tics, who decides if we are to
commit ourselves to a costly
competition that may involve
damage to our fine performance
in the same tests in other areas
of knowledge. It is generally ac-
cepted that our public schools
fail our children in art and mu-
sic. Our schools' curriculum ifi
economics, psychology and poli-
tical science is hopelessly inade-
You may be certain that the
number of 'crises' are inex-
haustable in the field of educa-
tion. Our children know more
about needlework to sew our
country's flag to their bluejeans
than they do about the history
of the flag that has flown over
many a blood-stained battlefield
There is more to selecting
be either a Sunday morning, and evening service or a
Sunday service and mid-week prayer meeting); 33 attend-
ed once a week; 26 once or twice a R'nont.L: and 35 said
they attended seldom or never.
A~ i:..u .i, nearly 25% said they had no religious affil-
iation, and many of those who had-such affiliation did
not often go to church, a large .a ..r;.yv of all the people
questioned -L 68% said that tli y felt the need "for
a more i.- ''* ." r,'" k; faith. Of r ,,rS'r- church attend-
ance plays a major part in the r, li io ,s lif-. of a Chrsitian.
However, when this is not possible (and even when it is)
may we suggest that studying the Bible as a .family unit
and individually is always a major step in bringing one-
self closer to meeting the need for a more personal re-
ligiousfaith. And when all else is impossible; it is the most
simple thing in the world to bow on our knees and talk
WVith our Christ as if he is our dearest, and closest friend.
If you. do, this, he will be. '
goals than selecting isolated
tests. For example, if Florida
schools consistently and signifi-
cantly fall below pupils from
other states;,it is an opportun-
ity to learn rather than a crisis
in which to panic. It is a time
to reflect and consider Are our
objectives the same as other
states? Do we want our children
to hold different values and
have different interests than
those in other states? If we test-
ed those children in 'l.- .:' our
objectives, the crisis could well
be in those states rather than
Some objectives can be refer-
red to as "cornerstones". We
want our children to know how
to read, and if our schools do
not teach our children how to
read, then changes need to be
made. If educators argue over
which techniques should be
adopted, who will make the final
We can be certain that history
will repeat itself A legislator
with no prior interest in educa-
tion will repeat itself. A legisla-
tor with no prior interest in edu-
cation will seek out his privately
retained reporter and the head-
lines will boldly announce a
lators will think of us and our
"crisis". Hopefully, some legis-
children. They will avoid the
glamour arid notoriety and quiet-
ly go about the task of inquiring
among educators. They will learn
that different children have dif-
ferent sorts of difficulties in
learning to read and different
'sorts of techniques will have to
be made available. They will
learn that circumstances of back-
ground and homelife may be the
causes of poor ,performance in
reading and not so much the
techniques used by the schools.
Whatever the answers, when
they are gained, we must com-
mit ourselves in Gulf County to
listen with reason and thought
rather than in fear and panic.
Our decisions'must be made in
recollection of events during
terms of office of our legisla-
tors and not upon their headline

A Thought to
The story is told about the
farmer who. had taken an old,
run-down, grown-up piece of
land and :.L-- u h many months
of sun-'til-sun labor had made
it into a beautiful farm.
A man riding by in a buggy
.one day, seeing the farmer work-
ing in a field, pulled up and call-
ed out: "You and the Lord sure
do have a nice farm here."
"Yes", the farmer replied.
"You should have seen it while
the Lord had it by himself-"
There is ai graet deal of truth
in this story. We accomplish
many things only through our
own efforts. God helps us by
supplying health and strength,
know-how and intelligence, but
the fields are made beautiful
with an axe, a grubbing hoe,.
and a lot of hard work.
The same is true with all pha-
ses of life.

Port St. Joe, Florida
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Mrs. Jane Patton, head librarian for the Northwest
Florida Regional, Library, of which Gulf County is a par-
:'*. w.. ve i some slides to the .otairy Club last Thurs-
day of some of the libraries over the four-county system.
The Regional Library is quite a .'.'.-Sen': larger than most
people realize or could even imagine. With a budget of
over ':(-..00 a year, the system handles a half million
6:.,: annually for people in Gulf, Bay, Washington and
C-.h:..; county, .
All of the figures pertaining to the library operation
are i'pr~e .-'- but what impressed me most with the
slide presentation were some of the facilities furnished
for library space in counties with much less -income than
Gulf County has. They have m',i:.g*d to provide library
headquarters in keeping with the importance of library
services and also c c.I.:ch.-:, to more use by the people
they serve. It sort of makes us hang our head in shame
when we look at Gulf C. -vI '.--. library facilities.
At present, Gulf County contributes $21,000 a year
to the Regional Library for local 1,brj.i and bookmobile
service. It's a i -rg.aii and also a pretty good sum for
the County to be p uHi,'- into library services. But, the
F.:;.' : are still shameful even when we don't consider
"keeping up with the Jonses" in our neighboring coun-
ties, In Port St. Joe, the City of Port St Joe pays the
rent for the library building; I presume the City of We-
wahitchka does the same in the North end of the county.
.What we are suggesting (as you have probably al-
ready .-'--*-:doi is that either the City or the County
S...',Jl initiate the -?.i tn r. 'i.", of a new, :.<.qu:t.. and
bs.arr. -3'.- new library building here in Port St. Joe. It
isn't as if we can't afford it. We can. It isn't as if we
.can't ,get some aid in the construction. We can. The
whole problem probably lies in that someorfe hasn't
suggested it before.
We'd like to see it happen. A new, modern hlmry
building would be a fine compliment to our comely and
useful schools, hur.'.-1, county courthouse, .i -,' hall
and other buildings in our City which give it a solid and
"Tired' of Cold Turkey?" headline on a news story
in the Tallahassee Democrat last Friday afternoon. The
-~-*.'.. :1-. may be a little premature since the Thanksgiving-
bird probably isn't even warm yet, much less cold after
a day of eating.
The article 'goes on to say what can be done with the
cold turkey after it has been eaten, re-eaten and eaten
again after the' Thanksgiving holiday. The story sug-
gests making everything from turkey jerky to turkey
After roast turkey, turkey sandwiches, turkey salad
and turkey hash, the- only welcome dish that follows on,
say, Saturday, would be to make turkey trash and throw
out what is left..
Regardless of whether you feast on turkey, steak,
duck, goose, ham or even a balogna sandwich tomorrow,
we here at The Star hope you enjoy it and have a happy
Thanksgiving! We intend to.
