Childers Queries Machine Accuracy
While nothing is expected to be changed
in the outcome of Gulf County's second
primary election held last week, controversy
still prevails over the manner in which the
election was conducted.
Wayne Childers, the unsuccessful candi-
date for Superintendent of Schools has asked
for a court order to examine the voting

check their accuracy. Childers says he feels

In their answer to the charges, the

gated the charges and found that on two
instances machines malfunctioned; once in

inspectors on the site corrected the situation
on the spot. They further stated that all counts
on the voting machines tallied with the

Monday, at the Gulf 'County 'Courthouse,
Childers told a Star reporter that he was
asking for a court order to open the machines
and check them for accuracy of operation.
"Also", Childers said, "Both machines
from Precinct 8 and one machine from
Precinct 2 came back with seal deficiencies."
Childers said the machines from Precinct 8

Importance of Energy
Mrs. Paula Hawkins, here
for a Public Service Commis-
sion hearing for the St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph
Company Tuesday, spent part
of her time in Port St. Joe
speaking to the Kiwanis Club
at noon and meeting with a
group of local ladies in a
reception at the Garden Cen-
Ster on Eighth Street.
With the housewife's view of
such things, Mrs. Hawkins
told those with whom she
came in contact that the

bility of regulating services
which affect a great portion of
the average family's budget.
"We deai with power and

"and these services are going

Mrs. Hawkins said the main
reason for the increases in
power, telephone, natural gas,
and transportation costs af-

"We must find alternate
sources of energy", the Mait-
land housewife said. "The
surging prices of oil affect
rates of nearly every service
governed by the .Commission
and they must remain solvent
to bring the uninterrupted
services we have come to
expect". The Commissioner
said, "My electric bill is
unreasonable too, but it is still
far less than like services in
the northern part of the United
In speaking of the Commis-
sion and its activities, Mrs.
Hawkins said the Commission
was formed in 1877 when it had
only one railroad to regulate.
Since that time, their duties
have grown along with the
state to include every public
service offered. "We have had
more hearings in the last four
years than we had in the
previous 50 years because of
rising fuel prices", Mrs. Haw-
kins said. She pointed out that
when she went on the Commis-
sion met in secret and cast its
vote after 10 days of studying
the testimony presented.
"Now we come under the
'Sunshine Law' and hold our
meetings in public, with our
vote on the matter being made
in public also".
Considering the items regu-
alted by the Commission, Mrs.
Hawkins said the Commission
must be very prudent in its
deliberations "since the econ-
omy of our state revolves
around these decisions."
The speaker said such com-
missions were elected in only
11 of the states in this nation.
"I feel the people should select

said. She pointed out that she

Proper Drainage Could
Cost City Half Million
The City of Port St. Joe can
solve some of the more serious
drainage problems in the city,
but it will cost around a half
million dollars to do it.
An engineers study of drain-
age problems in the city and
their possible solution has
been turned over to the Com-
mission with an estimated
price tag attached.
The biggest problem, that
along the eastern limits of the
city can't be eliminated, but
the engineers have come up
with a solution they say can
greatly improve drainage and
quickly get rid of accumulated
surface water. The report also
says drainage of any sort
depends on the tide: if the tide
is in, the drainage won't work.
The engineers, Smith and
Gillespie of Jacksonville shot
a gaping hole in plans of the
county to extend George
Washington Branch to Depot
Creek and depend entirely on
this drain to take care of the
problem which exists in this
area of the city. The report
shows the ditch will carry off a
lot of water, but the fact that it
winds 22 miles through the
swamps and has very little
elevation "fall" will make it
practically useless as a means
of quick removal of surface
The engineer report sug-
gests installation of gates in
the Branch just south of
Highway 98 to prevent Depot
Creek water from coming
back up into the Branch in
times of high tide and which
would open up to allow drain-
age when water is travelling
the other way, away from the
city. The plan would also tie
the big ditch beside the Court-
house in with the ditch which
drains into Patton Bayou for
quick release of water. The
report suggests the tie-in be
made in the vicinity of 20th
Street with a huge pipe or
another ditch connecting the
two existing drain facilities.
Engineers say there is suffi-
cient fall in this route to allow
quick exit of surface water,
provided the tides are not
high. In this case, no drain
system will work in Port St.
Other drainage problems,
not quite so evident to resi-
dents of the city exist in the

north of Avenue G and along
First Street. The engineer

ter into the Gulf County Canal

than company officials giving
testimony to the financial
condition of the firm, in an
effort to justify their request-
ed rate increase.
Of the 10 private witnesses,
one was from Port St. Joe, one
from the Beaches, four from
Alligator Point and four from
Altha. All testified that they
were now getting good service
from the firm, but objected to
paying more for it.
According to Hidgon Swatts,
Commercial manager for the
company, the phone firm is
asking, basically for an in-
crease in private line charges
from a present $5.25 to $8.65
here in Port St. Joe. Business
rates would be hiked from
$9.50 to $21.65 if the rate
increases are approved. Other
rates would fall in the same
percentages as these two
examples. There is no request
being made to increase long
Swatts said, "We're playing
catch-up. We haven't had a
rate increase since 1962. Other
telephone firms are already
charging more than what we
are proposing now".

us? Is the penny not a barometer of
the dollar? If the penny becomes
worthless today, doesn't it stand to
reason the dollar will follow tomor-
row if something isn't done?
Then there is another facet of
the fading penny. The first mechani-
cal device a young child learns to
operate is a penny operated gum
ball machine. If; there are no
pennies, what will happen to the
gum ball machine? Even now, most
kids need two pennies to get enough
gum to chew properly since sup-
pliers have cut down on the size to
compensate for the price squeeze.

Say You Saw It
In The Star
States, the namesake of our nation's capital city
and probably the most famous man in the nation,
even today. More people probably know the
name George Washington than know the name
Joe Namath. George is no slouch when it comes
to fame. He has been around and made quite a
Now, George has been promoted. It doesn't
matter than the man has been dead for 175
years; he has still been promoted. It's official
now or we should say, semi-official. Last
Tuesday, by voice vote, the Senate completed
action on the Bicentennial promotion of General
Washington to the rank of Peerless General.
Washington was only a lowly lieutenant
general when he died. This means, that even
though his promotion came a little late in life for
him to enjoy it, he did at least have the
distinction of jumping more rank with one leap
than any other army man in history. I'm sure
he'll appreciate that.
This means that General Washington will
hold the highest rank ever held by a service man
in the United States. I don't know what the new
rank pays, but I feel sure General Washington
would have been glad just to get the pension pay
of such a rank during that winter he spent in
I'm happy for General Washington; he
deserves the rank, even though it did come a bit
late. If the U.S. congress ever decides to install
the rank of super-peerless general, I think
General Washington should be the first to
receive the appointment.
I have never been a subscriber of the theory
that a student from the United States can get a
better education by going abroad and studying in
foreign schools. This nation has taken the
cast-offs and ambitious from other nations and
schooled them under our system and come up
with a breed of people who have built the finest,
strongest and most compassionate nation on
earth. I don't feel you can argue with success.
I believe we have the best of everything,
even though we don't make Mercedes, Toyota,
Yamaha, Sony, etc. Our people are the best
trained and maintain the best nation. The
schools are bound to be at least a part
responsible for this.
Last week, I softened my attitude toward
Eldridge Cleaver, the former Black Pan-
ther, who, in the past, could hardly find anything
good about this nation, now is a born-again
patriot who is singing the praises of the country,
even though he has criminal charges hanging
over his head.
In recent months, Cleaver, who has just
recently come back to the United States after
several years in exile abroad, is now telling
university audiences, "We've developed an
attitude that the United States government is
totally foul; the Third World governments and
Communist governments are totally without
fault; and that any shortcomings they might
have are due to imperialists encircling them",
Cleaver said. He went on to say, "We can no
longer continue to justify Third World nations
and Communist nations having dictatorial forms
of government one-party states".
Cleaver now describes the United States as
having "the freest and most democratic gov-
ernment in the world". He declares that "black
people in the U.S.A. are the freest black people
on earth". Since there are all-black nations, ran
by black people, Cleaver's statement takes in a
lot of territory and should make black and white
people alike proud of the strides forward made
by this nation.
It seems we have a good foundation on which
to build and our energies should be in improving,
rather than tearing down the system.
In Cleaver's case, study abroad seems to
have had a good effect and taught him a valuable

of the current year, a Septem-

With hunting season a few

sportsmen and their canine
hunting companions to shape
up, said O. E. Frye, director,
Game and Fresh Water Fish
The Commission has helped
the hunting dog by establish-
ing a special training and
toughening season, but there
is no way to establish a special
training season for sportsmen
that will enable him or her to
endure the rigors and excite-
ment of hunting.
Frye commented, "The
white-tailed deer he pursues
has a better chance of survival
than an out-of-shape hunter,
and it is a known fact that
most hunters take better care
of their equipment than them-
The special deer dog train-
ing or toughening season open-

dog training rule does not
allow training of dogs in wild-
life management areas.
Bird dogs may be trained
during the closed season by
persons possessing a valid
hunting license and the trainer
is allowed to use a pistol firing
blanks or ball ammunition.
Frye passed on a few tips for
helping sportsmen get in
shape for the hunting season
by saying, "Sportsmen with a
history of heart trouble should
consult a physician before
opening day. A regular pro-
gram of strenuous physical
activity will condition the car-
diovascular system and keep
the average hunter fit enough
to handle the combination of
physical work and the excite-
ment of the hunt.
"To double the pleasure of
owning and watching a sport-
ing dog, hunters should leave
their vehicles and walk while
training their dogs. It's helpful
to the dog, healthy for the
hunter and may just provide a
clue for opening day."
The Municipal Hospital has
established visiting hours for
the public. The hours when
patients will be permitted to
have visitors are 2:00-4:00 in
the afternoon and 7:00-9:00 in
the evening. This policy be-

"The provision of high qual-
ity patient care is the main
goal of Municipal Hospital,"
said David Dunham, Admini-
strator, "and if we are to con-
tinue this mission it is neces-
sary that visiting hours be
established. By limiting the
interval when patients may
have visitors, the patient is
able to have more time to rest
and recover, plus it will enable
our staff to devote more time
to patient care activities.
Visiting hours are common in
most hospitals and, with the
increasing census of the hos-
pital, it has become necessary
to establish visiting hours." and has the support of the
