County Commission there was
no way the District could meet
the required 170 customers set
by the Farmer's Home Aiminis-
tion as the number needed be-
fore the system would pay off.
"We have only 124 residents in

members, Leo Kennedy, 'Walter

A small delegation of citizens
appeared before the Board Tues-
day night, with Hughey Williams
as their spokesman, and request-

property between St. Joe Beach
and Beacon Hill for the park,
which has been promised by the
State through Representative
SWilliam J. Rish.,The State builds
the parks, but the county must
furnish the property.
Williams said,. "People going
swimming in the Gulf of Mexico
in Gulf County must break the
law to 'do so, for they must cross
private property to get to the
water". He also cited a need for
increased, facilities" at the park -
on the Apalachicola River at the
end of State- Road 22 East ofWe-
wahitchka. The Game and Fresh
'Water Fish- Commission built
and maintains this park.
Chairman Rudy Pippin ac-
knowledged the need for the
beach facility and said he al-
ready has feelers out to secure
the needed land. He requested
the Board to officially instruct
.their attorney, William J. Rish
to negotiate for 10 acres in the
beach area for the state park.
The Board went -on to request
the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission to add to the boat
launching facilities and provide
more picnic tables on the Apala-

THI STAR, Per St. Jo*, Flrida THURSDAY, MARCH 197
Holy Week and Easter present a problem for an
editor. J o speak of the Passion of Christ on the one hand,
and His resurrection on the other, seems like dealing with
two completely different subjects.
In the early Church, the word Pasch referred only
to the commemoration of Christ's passion and death. But
From th 4th century on it referred to the resurrection as
S &istea r used t.e existencee of the Jewish Passover,
-, which recalled not only the deliverance of the'chosen peo-
ple from Egypt, but their new existence as a nation.
Christianity gave a completely new dimension to the'
Passover. It commemorated the deliverance of mankind
from the darkness of sin into the light of God's kingdom.
:. It is because of the death and resurrection of Christ that
Christianity will survive until the end of time.
What a miracle God pulled at Easter-time for the sal-
vation of man! Hundreds of people saw Jesus put to death
'1' on the cross and hundreds saw Him after He rose from
the dead and testified to the fact that it was indeed the
,,crucified Jesus who was walking around, visiting with,
talking to and Oating with his former friends a
paring them to go and till the story of the resu
and what it me4pt to mankind.
Never before and nver since has anyone i
dead man back to life. rJesu did it several times
ultimate miracle was ,tht raising of Himself. If
spent his life iq ignorance of the story of Jesus,
sacrifice for mn, we might be prone to scoff at
of a man being raised from tie dead. But the Bit

claimed He would do.
The thing that strikes us as ironic is that th
of this nation will believe one man when he says
servant has committed an indiscretion .-against th
of, several people of honor, but we won't accept
of the resurrection when testified to by hundr
what it means to mankind.
The happening of Easter continues to remir
a supreme sacrifice which was paid for our salvat

Someone said somewhere, "The man who is suc-
. cessful can always be singled out as the man who didn't
quit". Success is a sought after and a fleeting thing, and
surely it takes devotion to a task and tenacity to be rea-
lized regardless of what we are looking for success in.
Last week, in the mails, we received this little poem
we thought was good advice for anyone in any endeavor,
from:trying to raise a tomato bush to screwing up the
Sbcurage,'to go on a diet .

And you 'want to smile, but you have to' sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit--

Scientists and engineers have
been warning us that, unless an
answer to our ecology and fuel
problem can be found within a
few years, we can look for ser-
ious power shortage in many
heavily populated areas.
Not only do present fuels do
considerable damage, to our air
and water, the supply of oil, na-
tural gas and coal is getting
shorter every year, while the de-
mand for more and more power
is growing by leaps and bounds.

His machine is made in two
sections, each containing a sen-

I got a letter last week from niece way over in Spo-

like ice hockey on TV. The niece, Michele Williamson,
has been to Florida before, but it was in the summer
time. As a matter of fact, her daddy was stationed down

Miss Minerva McLane brought me a page out of a
magazine published in the Missouri Ozarks a couple of
weeks ago which contained some pretty good remarks by ,
a columnist by the .name of Jim Owen "The ex-coonhunt-

Jim Sez: "If I ever need a brain transplant-many
of you readers may think I need it now-I would like to "
have the brain of some politician, because it wold be
an unused organ."
Jim went on to say: "If a 15-year-old boy started
smoking cornsilk cigarettes behind the barn, in my day
he was called a juvenile delinquent".

of his greeting before he could even get back in his office.
The criminal got away.
We couldn't tell you what a skunk was doing outside
in the cold Vermont weather unless he was just laying
for some police chief to squirt.
The Legislature and Congress are messing around
with the residency requirements for prospective voters
moving into a new community. The Congress has said
60 days residency is enough. The Florida Legislature
is toying with the idea of requiring only 50 days residency, r
Meanwhile, it takes one year of living in Florida and six
months of residency in Port St. Joe to vote in Municipal
elections and one year in Florida and six months in the
'County to vote in County elections.
Personally, I think a little bit of permanence is desir-
able to make one eligible to vote. Too many times, a trip
to the ballot saddles the people with something they can't
get rid of overnight. A year's residency makes it pretty
certain the one casting a vote is going to be around to
live with the results and he'll be just a little bit more
careful how he uses the privilege.

Ford Country Squire ... America's biggest selling wagon!
Like LTD, Country Squire is luxurious and quiet riding. It's loaded
with Ford "better ideas" like the 3-way doorgate. Power steering,
power front disc brakes, Cruise-0-Matic are standard
The jury did not. recommend
mercy and Judge Smith' sentenc-
ed Pitts and Lee to death.
It was 'the second conviction
for Pitts arid Lee who spent eigtli
years on Raiford State Prison's
death row before their 19.63 con-
viction in the killings was over-.
turned by the Florida Supreme.
Court and a retrial ordered.
In their motion for a new trial
Block and Hubbart charged that,
Judge Smith erred when he:
Drivers Must Take
Keys from Car
'Drivers must lock thhe ignition
and take the, keys when leaving,
vehicles unattended. according :to.
the new State Uniform Traffic Con'
trol Law said-the Florida Highway
'Colonel Eldrige Beach, director
'f' the;Patrol said, :'Drivers have.
a responsibility, to park their Ve-
hicles n a proper and safe manner.
Leaving keysiit the ignition is very
dangerous when small children are
left in the vehicle and also makes
theft an easy task." '
Vehicles, shall not, be left unat-
tended unless the engine is stop-
ped, ignition locked and keys, re-
moved. Delivery vehicles are ex-
empt from this requirement. When
parking on a hill, brakes must be
,set- ind front-,wheels:.turned to-,'
ward thecurb or sideofAthe street. ,
.Beacb concluded by saying, "Be-
'fore getting o6t' of your; vehicle
take just 'a ,minute td make certain
it is parkeq;properly and 'take the'
keys with .you."
Refused to remove the case
from the '"extremely prejudiced"
Panhandle of Florida.
Refused to let.the jury hear
the taped confession to the kill-
ings .of Curtis Adams Jr., pre-
sently serving a life sentence for
a similar gas station murder in
Fort. Lauderdale, committed 16
.days after the Port St. Joe kill-
Allowed the jury to hear a
1963: confession made after po-
lice allegedly beat Pitts and Lee.
Allowed the state to syste-
matiqally exclude all blacks from
the 18-member grand jury which
indicted Pitts and Lee in Jan-
:* Refused to allow testimony
that the KU Klux, Klan plotted
to murder Pitts and Lee in the
event of an acquittal.
Block and Hubbart noted 'that
during the trial the jury, while
locked up 'improperly, comnitini-,
cated to the,'press- its results of'
a straw vote in the March 14- pre-,
sidential primary. The vote was
11 to, 1 for Alabama' Gov. George
Judge Smilh ut rule on the'
motion and if he"efuses to grant'
a new :trial, .the appeal goes to;
the Florida Supreme Court.
