Today Marks 29 Weeks of St. Joe Paper Company Mill Gathering Rust
Today marks 29 weeks that St. Joe Paper Company's giant paper
mill here in Port St. Joe has remained idle by a strike of its union
employees. The mill, which ordinarily furnishes employment for
hundreds of people in the Gulf County area, is now relegated to
gathering rust and dust. How much longer the mill will be idle is

Elton Lee King
Taken by 'Death
Funeral services for Elton Lee
King, 77, of 512 Fourth Street,
were held Saturday, February
19 at 3:00 p.m. from the Klipat-
rick Funeral Home Chapel with
the Rev. William N. Stephens of-
ficiating. Interment followed at
Holly Hill Cemetery. Mr. King
died Thursday of last week fol-
lowing a short illness.
King had lived in the Port St.
Joe area for the past 48 years,
moving here f r o m Georgia,
where he was born. He was a re-
tired automotive mechanic and
a veteran of World War II.
He is survived by his wife,
Mrs. Rosie King; four sons, El-
ton Lee King, Jr., of Atlanta,
Ga., Bobby King fo Perry, Jasper
King with the U. S. Army in Oki-
nawa and Robert Lee King of
Port St. Joe; four daughters,
Mrs. Christine Brooks of Orlan-
do, Mrs. Inez Nichols of Lake-
land, Mrs. Mary Alice Fichera of
Jacksonville and Miss Betty Sue
Ann King of Port St. Joe; one
brother and 13 grandchildren.
Pallbearers included Jimmie
Kilbourn, L. Z. Henderson, Jack
Sheffield, Jeff Player, Emmett
Daniell and George Dykes.
Kilpatrick Funeral Home was
in charge of arrangements.
Dunn told- the Board that af-
ter the 1972-'73 year, the Coun-
ty will have considerably more
money each year with which to
build roads. "This is because a
road building bond issue you
floated several years ago will be
Dunn said the county will have
$149,000 with which to build sec-
ondary roads in '72-'73; $263,000
in '73-'74; $289,000 in '74-'75;
$313,000 in '75-'76 and $334,000
in '76-'77. "Most of this increase
is coming through increased gas
taxes brought to the state by
Disney World," Dunn said.
The Board, which has been
approached by the City of We-
wahitchka to put 36" pipe along
1500 feet of new street has been
reluctant because they had pre-
viously promised to put pipe on
Long Avenue from 18th Street
to the Elementary School last
year before any other piping pro-
jects were done.
When Dunn was asked the sta-
tus of this project, he replied it
wasn't listed in their program.
All of the members thought it
had been placed near the top
priority and warned Dunn that
they would be making' some
changes in projects already re-
quested before the March meet-
ing, so the Long Avenue project
could be included.
Dunn told the Board they
would begin receiving more mon-
ey to conduct their own main-
tenance program shortly. Gulf

area to assume this responsi-

PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1972
Price of A Principle
How much is a principle worth? $10.00? $100.00?
$10,000? $1 million? ,$10 million? That's a hard ques-
tion to answer anyway you look at it. Of course, your
own personal interest in the principle either detracts from
or enhances its value. Being affected by the exercising
of the. principle through no fault of your own is harder
to take than if you were. personally involved. We know
that. But how much is a principle worth? It's accord-
ing to the principle, isn't it. Some principles are worth
more than others. Some-are worth-dying-for and others
are not worth walking across the street to defend.
We here in Port St. Joe are testing the worth of a
principle and the biggest debate going is, "is it worth
what it costs?" Many say "no". Some say "yes". Re-
gardless of which is correct, we're still faced with the
problem of how much this particular principle is going to
cost us before it is resolved.
At the present time, we have, in round figures, $21
million invested in the principle at stake in the St. Joe
Paper Company strike. Records show that $4,324,278
has been lost in paper company wages alone. This doesn't
take into consideration the untold thousands of dollars
in wages lost as a result of allied, satellite or dependent
I wages paid when the mill is going full steam ahead.
Other allied losses include $5,991,645 in freight rev-
enues which are felt all the way from here to Canada;
$8,674,974 lost in wood purchases which affects all of
Northwest Florida and especially the surrounding coun-
ties of Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Liberty and Franklin.
The area .has lost $2,637,809 which would ordinarily be
spent for supplies. Port St. Joe's longshoremen have lost
an estimated $219,482 in wages and the State of Florida
has lost a whopping $167,665 in sales taxes.
Again we ask, "how much is a principle worth?-
how much is this particular principle worth?" We say
it has already cost $21 million. How much is that? We
read where the new capitol complex for the State of Flor-
ida is going to cost $25 million. There's a comparison
for you. Another month or so, and our principle will have
We sort of go along with House Speaker Richard
Pettigrew on the superfluity of placing the straw vote
on busing on the March 13 ballot but for different rea-
Pettigrew says it is an already proven fact that the
majority of blacks and whites are opposed to forced bus-
ing merely to achieve an integrated situation in areas
.which wouldn't normally be integrated. Hardly anybody
(except those in government championing this method)
agrees with the busing concept. The Speaker further has
said it is the business of the Legislature to handle such
matters as busing. He is right.
We may be slightly far out, but we believe the mat-
ter was placed ,on the March ballot for the purpose of
drawing people to the polls to vote in the presidential pop-
ularity poll here in Florida. We hesitate to call it a pri-
mary because we don't see it as such. True, the March
ballot will get Florida a lot of publicity. Attention will be
drawn to the Sunshine State and its "Democratic choice".
But it will not serve as any binding stepping-stone toward
the White House.
The problem is, were it not for the busing question
on the ballot in March-something to attract interest-
the Florida presidential primary would go to George Wal-
lace of Alabama almost by default. No presidential can-
didate had been able to stir up enough enthusiasm to get
enough votes to be elected city commissioner of Tallahas-
see, much less Florida's choice for President of the Unit-
ed States. The interest just wasn't there to get out the

does that grab you? Is it worth it?
But does the cost stop there? Not by a long shot.
How about thosq who have lost businesses, homes, auto-
mobiles, boats, furniture, etc., all of which had equity

Regardless of hpw much the figure is.now, it can do noth-
ing but increase as time, goes by. Chances are that it
will begin to rise more rapidly. Businesses, regardless of
how large or how small, cannot continue to defer payments
indefinitely. Some have already felt the pinch and have
had to demand payment. It was either that or go broke.
What kind of a principle makes a merchant go broke so
his customers can continue to defer their payments.?
We're not trying to be funny: We're not trying to
cast any blame on anybody. We are trying to reiterate
what Lieutenant Governor Tom Adams said before the
Chamber of Commerce a little over a week ago: "There
is nothing before the two parties involved that cannot be
resolved by reasonable men".
If this is so, it's a pity that the reasonable men of
Port St. Joe have allowed this thing to drag on thus far.
We don't know the issues. From all the listening we have
done, nobody is fully cognizant of the issues except the
negotiators. This is a terrible situation. Both sides of
the question have their rights and have merit to their
claims. Of that we are sure. But this third side of the
problem: those being affected through no choice of their
own and have no voice in the settlement of the matter, also
have their rights. They deserve to be considered since it
is costing them as much as the man walking the picket

I first encountered the thought
that plants are like people from
stories and articles I read in
several different magazines. One
told of a California Preacher who.
set out to test the theory by
planting two flower beds side
by side from the same seed.
He gave both beds the same care
and attention, but every morning
he talked to them, blessing one
bed and cursing the other. He
praised the one and condemned
the other. The bed that received
his blesisng grew strong and vi-
gorous while the one he cursed
and condemned became stunted
and finally withered and died.
A later article told of a scien-
tist who attached electrodes to
plants and found that charts in-
dicated their reactions to various
emotions. They became alarmed
when danger threatened them;
showed resentment and jealousy
when neglected and other plants
received better treatment care

er we stopped to look at a clump
of Japanese Lantern plants. They
took up considerable' space in
the garden, grew like weeds but
did not blossom. We recalled
that the year before only one
single puny blossom appeared.

we might just as well dig those
plants up and replace them with
something else?" I agreed and
while we did not act on his sug-
gestion at the time, we planned

President Nixon has arrived in China and has had
his day as the first United States President to land in
that ancient nation.
Pre-trip prognostication was that the President would
receive a "warm welcome" if either Chairman Mao or a
large throng of people were present to greet him when
he landed. There was neither. The only thing that greet-
ed the President was a chill wind and those government
officials necessary for a "polite" welcome.
Not much in the way of either optimism or pessimism
has been written concerning the trip, other than what
might ordinarily be expected from the President's support-
ers on the one side and his detractors on the other side.
The President's visit is sort of one of those "hold your
breath and see what happens" affairs. We can hope it's
good whatever happens.
From all we read, the President's visit to Red China
isn't going to shorten or lengthen the war in Vietnam one
day. All of the "experts" concerning things Oriental say
the Russians, not the Chinese are the force behind the
hammer of Hanoi. The Chinese and the Vietnamese
have been enemies for centuries.
To the brighter side.
You wouldn't know it by the temperatures experien-
ced here over the past week end, but Spring is here. The
azaleas- are bursting out all over. The grass is turning
green. Jimmy Greer and W. I. Carden have already plant-
ed their irish potatoes and the garden seeds are on the
counters at the stores.
It may still be snowing, icing and freezing up North
but here in sunny Florida it's time. to turn the sod, tune
up the mower, buy your fertilizer and, get your wife in

How do we get so spoiled?
These gadgets have, become masters rather than ser-
vants. Every new labor-saving device that comes along
is designed to give us more time to do more things we
want to .. or make what we must do easier.
Take the case of the electric razor, for instance. Mine
woke up broken one. morning a couple of weeks ago and
had to be sent off for repairs. We had used the electric
faes trimmer long enough to where it was a chore and a
bother to shave with it. All that precious time wasted
every morning, cutting off those whiskers. And that old
razor just seemed to take longer and longer and get more
uncomfortable by the day in its appointed rounds of shav-
ing our kisser.
Two weeks with a blade razor makes us long once
again for the electric replacement. The comfort of not
being able to nick our chin or slice our throat was a com-
fort we had become so accustomed to, it was taken for
granted. When the ,electric razor comes back, we ought
to get up a big "welcome home" party. Our neck will be
most pleased since it is taking the roughest beating from
the substitute blade.

1 teaspoon dry or sprig of fresh
Into a large pot (1- gal.) add oil
and place over low heat and brown
garlic and onion. Add the tomato /

"If you become disabled, see
your doctor first and then contact
l a social security representative,"
David Robinson, Social Security
Field Representative for Gulf
County, said today.
When people fail to get in touch
with the .social security office soon
after becoming disabled, they risk
losing money. If you were disabled
more than 18 months ago, each
month you delay filing a disability
claim could cost you a month's so-
cial security check.
The disability law has been
changed in recent years and some
who could not qualify in the past
may now be eligible. This is es-
pecially true for the young disa-
bled before age 31, you don't need
as much work as you did in the
past to qualify.
In addition, the duration of your
disability does not need to be as
long as in the past. If you are
disabled for as short a period as a
year, or your doctor says you will
be disabled for as much as a year,
you may be eligible. "Vietnam ve-
terans who are disabled should ask
about this law," Robinson conclud-
For more information, residents
of this area should contact the
Panama City Sodial Security Office.
The office is located at 1316 Har-
rison Ave., and is open Monday
through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30,
