Andy Thomas, director of the
State Department of Rehabilita-
tive Services in. Gulf County
made the. County Commission
aware of a problem which has
been introduced along with the
new Food Stamp program which
was inaugurated in Gulf County
Thomas said the problem was
a need for a Food Stamp outlet
here'in Port St. Joe. "At pres-
ent," ThoMnas said, "Food Stamp
recipients must come to our of-
fices in the old Courthouse in
Wewahitchka to purchase their
stamps. The people who use the
stamps are probably least able
of anyone in the County to tra-
vel 30. miles to receive them."
Just before the Food Stamps
came into use, the County had
made plans to distribute food
commodities- out of the rear of
the new Mosquito Control build-
ing. The Food Stamp operations
needs a different type housing
entirely, so the County is faced
with providing a secured office
with room for people to enter
and make their stamp purchases.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
wanted to provide a place for
the Food Stamp program in the
rear .of the. Mosquito Control
building immediately, even at the
insistence- of supervisor C. E.
Daniell that the space would not
meet the Food Stamp program'
specifications. They want a bar-
enclosed space for the people
who will handle money, for se-
The remainder of the Board
over-ruled Kennedy by insisting
that they get with the Food
Stamp people, see what they
need, and then go about provid-
ing space necessary to properly
carry on the program.

It took the better part of two weeks to select a jury
for the recent Pitto-Lee murder case in garianna. It
took' a month to pick a. jury to try the Berrigan brothers.
'At last report, attorneys were still trying to select a jury
.o try Angel, Davdi:s
T The big theme in the Pitts-Lee case was to try and
nd someone who hadn't read accounts of the eight-year-
^ld case in the papers. The defense attorney wanted
.someone who was ignorant to the case. -Likely the other
two famous cases had exactly the same kind of maneu-
ver going on. The, thinking of the'attorneys was that
those who had read of the case had preconceived notions
as to'the guilt or innocence of the accused.
In a. recent column, Sydney J. Harris wrote: "Natur-
- ally, a jury should be composed of as many "impartial"
persons as possible but impartial is too often equated
with "insulated". Someone who just sits around chew-
ing his cud, reading no newspapers, listening to no news-
casts, thinking and feeling nothing, is the ideal venire-
man from the strict vewpont of "prior base'.
/ Harris went on to say ,that we pay a high price for
this type "objectivity". It means -that -the ;most alert,

With the St. Joseph Bay Country Club getting near
the stage where it can be used for playing golf, we're
* beginn-ig to see more and more interest in the game here
t in Port St. Joe.
CQde House, who will be the pro for the golf course
beginning June 1, spoke to the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day giving them some of the things one has to do in order
to learp to play a respectable game of golf. According to
him, no amateur can play a respectable game since he
said ap amateur "attacks" the game rather than "plays"
it. I thought all those golf jokes were just jokes and not
happenings from real life,
I have a membership in the Country Club, but to tell
you the truth, I'm getting fearful about this thing of play-
ing golf. I've tried to learn about the game by watch-
ing the professionals at work on TV. I know how to
count score and I know you must keep the ball out of
the trees and in the middle of the lawn. Knocking it down
the gopher hole from such a short distance seems to be
a cinch, but I have my doubts about being able to make
the ball sit still on top of that little wooden peg while you
Really, I don't know if I can afford the game or not.
Two weeks ago I saw Arnold Palmer hit a ball in the
creek and'just that one stroke cost him' $i5,000. That
alone would make ,me want to quit. But, you don't have
to worry about that at St. Joseph's Bay '. they don't
have a creek on the course. They have about 25 lakes,
but golf balls must never go in lakes. I haven't seen a
one hit in the lakes on my Sunday afternoon viewing.
I thought preacher Sidney Ellis got a good one off on
Code House last Thursday. He said, "I have heard men
say they can get as close to God on the golf course as they
can in church. What time do your services start on Sun-
Code wasn't one to be taken by surprise, however, be-
cause he answered right back, "Just as soon as you get
through with yours".
There's a committee up in Tallahassee that's getting
up-tight about the Southern part of Florida developing
too fast. They reason that if that portion of the state
continues to develop at the present pace, it won't be long
til the things that drew the people to Florida will have
Consequently, this committee is looking at a program
of discouraging further growth in South Florida. But
they. acknowledge that this 35% of the state up in the
Panthandle can stand some growth and development. So
they are looking .kindly toward this area and its needs.
I hope this committee doesn't stop until we get just a
few more goodies up this way. We don't want as many
as South Florida received since we still want to be. able
to move around more freely than they do down there.
But, a few more jobs would help tremendously.

Don't wait for hot weather. Now's the time to check your
air conditioner and make certain it is operating properly.
Turn on your unit now. Does it cool every room the way you like it?
Need new filters? Repairs? You'll avoid the summer rush
by checking your unit now.
And if you are buying a new air conditioner this year, be sure
to select a high efficiency unit for economical operation.
The higher the efficiency of an air conditioning
unit, the lower the operating cost will be.
Here's how to check the efficiency of a unit:
All air conditioning manufacturers rate the cooling capacity of their units in
British Thermal Units (Btu's) and the electricity required for the unit in watts.
The unit that delivers the most Btu's per watt is the most economical to
operate. The most efficient units manufactured today produce from 7 to 10
Btu's per watt. So make certain that the unit you are considering
* rates as high in this range as possible. 6
