Gulf County Superintendent of Schools
Walter Wilder stated at the Tuesday after-
noon meeting of the School Board that he
expected at least 30 percent of Gulf County's
students to fail to meet the standards set in
the new state Pupil Progression Plan.
Wilder said the school system is getting
ready now to offer a remedial service to those
pupils who fail to meet the guidelines set out
by the state in order for a senior to 'receive a
graduation diploma in the spring. Those who
fail to pass the test, after three tries will
graduate but will not receive a diploma.
The tests will be given for the first time in
Gulf County schools on October 18 through 21
to students in the third, fifth, eighth and llth
"We dop't know yet just what we will do
with the students who do not achieve", Wilder
said. He said no decision has yet been made
on a local level whether or not to hold back the
students in the lower grades who do not meet
the standards of the testing program.
Wilder reported to the Board that there
has been some concern.over the tests but that
"most of the questions have come to our office
due to a lack of understanding of what the

tests do or their purpose".
The purpose of the tests, of course, is to
see if the student has grasped the knowledge
he should have received on his particular
grade level.
Wilder said, "There are two areas in the
test; that of functional literacy, which I think
we will have the most problem with and which
is most-critical and the minimum perform.-
ance standards".
The Superintendent said the functional
literacy which must be passed in order to
receive the diploma.
Students in the llth grade will have three
opportunities to pass his tests prior to
graduation. After the first tests this month,
remedial aid will be given to those who do not
come up to the average. Then, they will be
given a second chance at the test in the
spring. If he fails again, more remedial work
will be given' to the individual students before
his final testing in the fall of.his senior year.
The results of the last test offer the final
determination of whether or not the student
receives the diploma.
"We're going to catch the very devil in

this area for the next three or four years",
Wilder said. "With enough pressure, possibly
the Legislature will refine the law to the point
where it will adequately help the student to
graduate with the knowledge he should
possess when he receives the diploma. I can
see where we're going to have some trouble
for the first few years of getting this program
operational", he stated.
Another matter of a similar nature faced
the School Board Tuesday when a group of
parents of seventh and eighth grade students
asked the Board to consider grouping of
students by ability in the grades.
The parents seemed concerned that some
students were not receiving what they should
with a class moving ahead at a speed to
accommodate the better learners. Again,
some of the better learners were being
penalized by having their progress checked
for others to keep pace with the class.
Wilder advised the group of parents that
some grouping was already being accom-
plished, especially in the area of communica-
tions and language arts. He pointed out that
there was no deliberate grouping of students

l Tests

ns Tough
by the school administration but that several.
students grouped themselves by their choice-:
of subjects and others were guided into'
subject areas they could handle. "We already.:
offer special reading classes for those who-.
need it, rather than subject these students toW-
advanced language classes when they are notF
prepared for them", Wilder said.
It seemed to be the feeling of the Board
that this practice would become more wide
spread in the system as results from the Pupil'
Progression Plan tests began to come in.'
Harry Herrington, a long-time principal
of the Port St. Joe Elementary School will be
moved in position the first of the year, it was
announced-at the meeting Tuesday. Herring-'
ton will take the place of Roy Taylor, who is
retiring on April 1 of next year from his'
position as finance officer.
Herrington will go into the finance office ;
on January I to begin getting familiar witi^
his new duties, which he will assume on Apr
I of next year. t
The Board has not yet decided what to daE
about Herrington's vacated position. .

Port St" JOe Also In

A story in an issue of the Tallahassee Democrat last
week stated that a major brewing company. Miller Brewers,
was interested in putting a brewery in the Panhandle of :
Florida.and surmised that Quincy or Tallahassee had a good
shot at snagging the industry, which the story said, would
employ approximately 700 people; mostly blue collar
workers. .'
The story said the brewer wanted at least a 500 acre site
with the possibility of securing up to six million gallons of
water each day for their process.
This same brewing company has also been to Port St. Joe
in its quest for a site and was pleased with what he found,
. according to J. C. Belin, president of St. Joe Paper Company
and Bob Simon, manager of the City's Wastewater
Treatment plant.
Belin said St.' Joe Paper Company officials showed the
officials of the brewing concern'around several land sites
which would be available to them, should they decide to
locate here. Simon assured the' firm that the Wastewater
plant could handle their wastes and that an ample water
supply could be supplied .from present, potential and
otherwise available water supplies of the City or from special
wells. '
The talk of the big brewery's plans has them interested in-l
nearly every town, city and hamlet in the Panhandle, but
according to these two men, who have had personal contact
with the firm's representatives, Port St. Joe has a more than
even chance at snagging the firm for this locale.

strong advocate of the move and
labored hard in the association to
bring this move R? the part of the
DOT about.
What the association and Ken-
nedy didn't foresee was that the
DOT would require the county to
follow present state guidelines in
building roads. Too, the changeover
will require the counties to bid off all
jobs which will amount to more than
$50,000, which isn't much of a paving
job these days.
The thinking of the advocates of
the county having the jurisdiction of
secondary paving was that they.
could do it as they pleased and when
they pleased. Too, there was no
thoughts of having present primary
roads declared secondary.
As it has worked out, the
change-over, rather than being a
political plum which local Commis-
..sioners -.could. play vote
getting politics with, seems des-
tined to become a nightmare which
can and probably will cost Gulf
County, at least, considerable pav-
ing mileage which they are now

We were an advocate of building
the new library because we thought
that, in addition to providing a
cultural and literary center badly
needed by the city, it would also give
a certain stability to our town which
only permanent centers such as a

Maybe we're prejudiced, but we
believe that our community de-

afford. We think the library fills that

Claims Blacks Overlooked

Dear Editor:
What I don't understand
about the politicians in Port
St. Joe is that they have
overlooked the needs of the
black people in Gulf County. It
is time for our Representative
Billy Joe Rish to come from
behind that brick wall. It is
time for him to do his job and
stop letting big business in-
terest control him.
These are facts that our
Representative Billy Joe Rish
has the poorest civil rights
record in the State for black
people. Senator Bob Sikes has
been in Congress for 35 years
and has never done anything

for a black person. Dempsey
Barron has been in office for
20 years and does not have any
blacks on his staff in Talla-
What I am trying to say is
that the black people are not
being represented and that is
why we need reapportionment
in Florida. There are too
many people on welfare, so
the conservatives are saying,
but yet still they vote for more
money for welfare to keep the
black people where they are
and uneducated. They have
not made an effort to solve the
problems of the black people.
They instead use them to get

into office, then they forget
about them. Rish, Sikes and
Tapper have this to say about
black people, "keep them
niggers down".

That was just one of the things one had to do on

possibility of doves being available is a might

Pine Seedlings May Run Short
dh n iirc. .i *.. ;

By Ralph J.Edenfield
County Forester

*"Pine seedlings to replace
more thah SO million killed in
last spring's drought may run
short this -all, State Forester
John Bethea warned today.
He said landowners should
arrange quickly for their
supplies. Timber growers in
t~.nany parts of the North
Florida pine belt lost 30 to 70
per cent or more of their one
'and two-year old seedlings.
Millions of replacements, plus
the year's normal demand,
may cause a shortage, he said.
Commercial tree growers
usually plant pines between
November and February.
Some 700 to 800 trees are
planted on each acre.
Right now, there appears to
be plenty of seedlings avail-
able in the Florida Forestry
9 Division's nurseries and those
operated by the timber grow-

Commissioner, Doyle Conner,I
whose Department includes
the Forestry Division, has'
estimated drought losses
throughout Florida at about
$500 million.
"The drought was worst in
the parts of Florida north of,
Ocala," the State Forester
said. "Surveys by our for-
esters show that up to 30 per
cent of the two-year old pines
were killed by last spring's
dry weather," Bethea said.
"About 70 per cent of the
one-year old trees died from
the lack of water," he added.
"There were an estimated 86
million of these little trees
planted on more than 60,000
acres the year before in the
affected parts of the state.
When that many are killed,
many owners find it best to
simply replant completely.
Some will replant when only
half the pines are killed. So we
cannot be absolutely certain of
the demand or pine seedlings,
except that we're fairly sure it
will be heavy. A prudent
grower should arrange for his
supply now."
Forestry officials said that
about 20 million slash pine
seedlings are still for sale.in
the state's four nurseries, plus
about six million sand pines.
Both are heavily planted for
pulpwood, the type depending
on the. soils. The state-grown
trees are sold at cost-S10 per
thousand. The state nurseries
in addition have 'for sale one
million l9ng leaf pine, one
million loblolly pine and two
million miscellaneous.

Indian Artifacts

Given to Library

The Northwest Regional Li-
brary System's headquarters
library received an unusually
fine gift of Indian artifacts
According to Jane Patton.
director of the library system,
many pieces of Fort Walton
period pottery (dating from.
1200 A.D.-1700 A.D.) had been
discovered in the cove section
of Panama City in the early
1930's. The finder, Joseph S.
Rigell, presented them to the
library in order that all citi-
zens could better appreciate
the area's cultural heritage.
Included were tw o almost
perfect' large bowls approxi-
mately 15.7 cm. in diameter
and 9.8 cm. high.
Mrs. Patton invites similar
gifts from all of the counties in
the ,regional system, and ex-
plains that the library can
*.serve in part as a haven for

history that could be lost
forever or remain unknown
without the support and co-
operation of the library
"When gifts like these are
received," Mrs. Patton stated,
"we invite authorities on the
subject to identify and de-
scribed them. Then we type
and sign an agreement with
the donor that goes on perma-
nent file, so that the public can
be assured of the accountabil-
ity of the librayi's role in
accepting gifts of an historical
These comments were di-
rected to all citizens in the six

system: Bay, Washington,
Calhoun, Gulf, Liberty and
Holmes. Contacts can be
made directly to Mrs. Patton
or through any of the branch
libraries in the area.

^ Scale insects attack and
sometimes kill a. wide variety
of plants. Gardeners are more
familiar with scale on camel-
S-lia leaves but' scale is also
c. ommon on leaves, branches"
and trunks of magnolia, plum,
peach, golden rain, euonymus,
citrus, ivy, gardenia, fig,
loquat, elm and many other
plants grown in Florida.
Scale insects may be very
soft like the mealy bug or they
may be hard and armored like
the wax scale. They attack
themselves to their host plant
soon after hatching, arid rare-
,ly do these insects ever move
from their feeding site
for the rest of their lives. Scale
insects feed by inserting a tin,
thread-like ,beak into the plant
and sucking the plant juices.
Standard control for scale
insects is spraying with oil
emulsion during, the dormant
season. Evergreen plants such
as camellia, citrus and euonyT-
mus should be sprayed when
Sthe temperature is below. 85
'degrees and above freezing.
Now, during October, is- an
ideal time to control scale
insects on evergreen plants.
Thoroughly cover the affected
plants, particularly the under-
side of the leaves. If complete
control is not obtained with the
fall spraying, repeat the appli-

cation in late March.
Camellia scale can also be
controlled by spraying with
dimethbate (Cygon or De-
Fend). This material is most
effective 'in spring when the
new leaves are almost fully
grown. Where scale popula-
tions are heavy, repeat the
spray, application. in. two or
three:weeks. Never apply Cy-
gon. or De-Fend to burford
holly. These materials will
cause complete defoliation of
the plant.
Meta-Systox-R is another
systemic insecticide that is
effective against many kinds
of scale insect. Follow the
manufacturer's directions on
the amount, to apply and fre-
quency of application.
Camellia, gardenia, ivy and
,opthecreergreens should not be
sprayed with oils when in need
of waterlf the weather isdry,
thoroughly water the plant the
day before you plan to spray
Plants in need of water may
be damaged by oil sprays.
For control of scale insects
on peaches, plums, japanese
magnolia, elms and other
deciduous (leaf-losing) trees,
spray with oil sprays during
late fall and winter. A second
application may be necessary
,when: the tree is heavily
infested With 'scale. Make the
second aIpplication about one
month after the first one. With,
deciduous plants such as the

peach and plum, you may
spray at any time, after leaf
drop in fall, but. before new
growth starts in the spring.
*However, it is best 'to spray
soon after the plants become
dormant in- the fall,. since the.
scale insects continue to feed
on the plant sap all year.
A side effect of scale infesta-"
tion is sooty mold. This black,
smut-like film on the upper
side of the leaf- is actually a
fungus growth. Scale insects
secrete honey-dew, a sweet,
clear liquid which falls on the
upper leaf surface. This
honey-dew furnishes the ideal
food for the fungus which
produce the black smut-like
film on the leaf. Oil sprays
that control scale insects will
remove sooty' mold from
4ig-Xes p(,,broadleavp ever-
greens,.Of course, aphids and
white by als~produce honey-
'dew and plants infested with
these two insects will also
have sooty mold. Again, an oil
spray in the fall will help to
remove this from the leaves of
affected plants. Control
aphids and white fly with
malathion or diazinon sprays
during spring, summer and
early fall.'

Lyles Gives Excerpts

from 'Another View'

Rotarian Bill Lyles brought
the after dinner program for
the regular meeting of the
Rotary Club last Thursday.
Lyles, manager of local
Radio Station WJOE, read
several of his columns, "An-
-other Point of View" to the
Rotarians. Lyles told the-club
that the authors of the column,
which is read three times
daily by Lyles over the sta-
tion, "are well read scholars
who keep up with what is

happening in the world to-
day." Lyles said the station
subscribed to the syndicated
columns several months ago
because he felt they expressed
the conservative viewpoint of
the listening area of WJOE.
The columns are based on
patriotism and free enter-
Guests of the club were

lor of Apalachicola.

trees have extensive root sys-
tems (five times larger than
the' canopy), they still need
regular watering. Fall and
winter months are notoriously
dry, at least more than wet.,

Even when. dormant de-
ciduous trees have no leaves,
water 'should be applied to
keep the root system alive and
active. On all trees apply at
least one inch of water per
week. One of the best methods
of watering is to set a sprin-
kler under the canopy of the"
branches and let it run until an
inch has been applied.

This is the month when
fertilizer should be applied to
all trees, Included are tropi-'
cal fruit trees, citrus, and
shade trees. Many tree people.
and nurserymen place the
fertilizer in holes for better
absorption by the.tree roots.'
These should be at least
twelve to eighteen inches
deep, and two inches in di-
ameter. Use a fertilizer that is
about fifty percent organic.
This type of material will feed
the tree when applied, anid

Beware Of Bunco--Don't Get Bilked

By Willis W. Alexander'
Executive Vice President
American Barkers Association
How can it happen again
and again? Confidence artists
have bhen,around for centur-
ies. Yet the headlines go on -
Woman Loses $3,500, Elderly
Pensioner Loses Life Savings,
Couple ."Bilk Shopper 'of
$2,200. ..
Authorities have found
that two very human failings
contribute heavily to victi-
mization by fraud. They are
gullibility. :and gredd. Too
many people, they say, are
attracted by easy money
schemes, 'arid the desire for
unearned wealth leads to an
uncritical acceptance of such
For your -own protection,
you should know that there
are no really new swindles,
only new variations on 'old
themes. One of the most fam-
ous is the "'bank examiner"
swindle. It's put' into opera-
tion by a person claiming to
be a 'bank examiner who
needs help in catching a
dishonest teller.
To cooperate with the ex-
aminer, the victim is asked to
withdraw from his savings
account a large amount of
money, which will be markett
ed" and checked against the
teller's records. The con artist
promises to return the cash to
the bank, but instead takes
off with it.
Don't fall for this line.
Under no circumstances will a
true bank examiner, FBI
agent or other law enforce-'
ment official request a bank'
customer to withdraw cash
from an account.
Another famous con game
is the Pigeon Drop. The vic-
tim is the "pigeon," and the
"drop" is a bag of cash that
one member of a team pre-
tends to "find" on the street,
after his partner has begun a
conversation with the unsus-
pecting victim. After shrieks
of surprise, the finder's con-
science tells him to split the
large sum of money with the
other two passers-by. The
two are then asked to put up
some good-faith money while
the finder "talks to his boss"
about the split.
This swindle has been
widely practiced for at ledst
400 years and is still going
strong. Like all swindles, at
the climax the "pigeon" is
asked for money. Naturally,
he will never see it, or his
share of the "find" again.
A common technique of
the con artist (who might
just as likely pbe a very inno-

cent looking woman as a man)
is .to get the intended victim
so excited, so rushed, so con-
fused that he (or she) hardly
knows what he's doing. But
simple precautions can keep
you out of trouble' Careful-
ness. and common sensnse exer-
cised by potential victims will
stop such schemes.
Cultivate a healthy skeptic.
cism of all miraculous offers
and get-rich-quick schemes.
Be on guard 'when you hear
-the 'words:, "something Ifor
-nothing," a "'secret plan," or
"this opportunity won't be
here tomorrow." And, with
any major transaction, insist
on having a: few days to dis-
cuss it with relatives, lawyers,
bank officers or the police.

one pound of fertilizer for each
inch of trunk diameter or one
pound for each foot of tree
spread, Where grass grows
around the trunk of the tree,
apply approximately one-
third more fertilizer. The
grass roots will take up the ex-
tra third.
Trees have a habit of de-
veloping weak crotches. On
young trees, these should- be
removed .by pruning. On
larger trees, the weak crotch
should be secured and braced
by a commercial tree man or
your favorite nurseryman,
says Florida Nurseryman and
Growers Association (FNGA).
When the upper branches
become large and widespread,
cabling will be necessary to
'.prevent breaking. This foo' is a
job for a professional.
Trees get insects and di-
seases. Spraying in the spring,
summer and fall will aid the
health of the tree.
Trees are valuable assets to
any property. Provide them
with the proper care and they
will live for many yeats.

express my sincere apprecia-
tion to my neighbors and
friends for their kind expres-
sions of sympathy offered me

Clerk Mike Wright reported
to the Commission Tuesday
night that the City's insurance
package for the new fiscal
year has all been approved,
with the last policy, liability,
for police officers, agreed to
that day (Tuesday)..
The insurance had expired,
on September 30, and the
carrier of a City "umbrella'"'
policy had refused to cover the
City's liability until the police
policy could be secured.
The City had been quoted a
premium rate of over $8,000
for the coverage but another
firm had agreed to provide the
same coverage for $3,072.
The. "umbrella" takes care
of any City liability over and
beyond limits set by individual
policies and the City must.

lower limits before the "um-

Sharks Bow to

Wakulia Eagles
BS k

It was a long arduous night
for the Sharks last Friday
night, going up against a
gaggle of 200-pounders in Wa-
kulla County.
-The Sharks started off like a
ball of fire, holding the War
Eagles to no gain after the
kick-off, but the severe dif-
ference in weight of the two
teams soon took care of that
and the War Eagles were able
to move well enough to score
twice in the first period, once
in the third and once in the
fourth. At that, it wasn't
enough for the Eagles, who
were definitely trying to score

more as the ball game 'gegan
to draw to an end. .-ven
though the Sharks were out-
weighed and could not move
the ball themselves, they saw
that the powerful War Eagles,
once designated number one
in the state, couldn't move
exactly at will either.
The Sharks came close sev-
eral times, mostly on Wakulla
errors, but were able to put
the ball across only once,
when Lyndon Thompson
scooted across from four
yards out and Rick Taylor
booted the extra point with
6'21 left in the first half.

The Shark score came after
the Eagles fumbled a punt on
their own 36 yard line. The
Shark forward wall covered
the loose ball. The Eagles
committed three straight er-
rors which moved the Sharks
dowi' to the four yard line.
Thompson then carried the
ball over for the score.
Both teams were afflicted
with the penalties Friday
night, but the Sharks seemed
to have every big play they
were able to come up with,
called back by a penalty.
Midway through the third
period, 'Thompson fielded a

punt and reversed the field for
a 15 yard return, which saw
him tackled by the last man
between he and the goal. The
Eagles were then socked with
a 15-yard penalty and several
short running bursts by Keith
Neel put the Sharks in good
position to do something. Then
on third down and short
yardage, a 15-yard penalty
socked the Sharks and stopped
the drive.
Fairly early in the last
period, Keith Neel burst
through the Eagle defenders
for a 40 yard gallop which set
the fans and the team on fire,
but it was called back by a clip
and the Sharks wound up
having to punt from their own
45 rather than having the ball
deep in Eagle territory.,
The Eagles scored first in
the first period, with 4:03 left
in the period when quarter-
back Hal Creech scored from
nine yards out. With only five
seconds left in the period, the
Eagles were again on the
scoreboard with a six yard run
by Mike Barnes. Both at-
tempts -for the extra point
were no good.
I With 6:28 left in the third
period, 202-pound Steve Marks
who had been making the
night long for the Sharks,
bulled over from five yards
out. Barnes scored again from
five yards, with 8:15 left in the
game for the Eagles final TD.
Larry Cook's kicks on the last
two TD's were good.
Steve Allen led the Shark
defenders with 10 tackles.

cooperative effort.
The picture of the "Choo-
Choo" in a recent issue of The
Sar probably touched the
hearts of a lot of people in this
area. The old engine has been
on the grounds of the Centen-
nial Building since 1938. All
have enjoyed it and most
probably haven't realized that
it was deteriorating until it
was called to attention. The
society will promote the re-
storation of this landmark.
Robert H. Ellzey was appoint-
ed chairman of the "Choo-
Choo" Committee.
Jesse Stone, member of the
Recreation, Conservation and
Development Committee of
Florida, reported that this
.committee willmeet in Port
St. Joe, October 25, in the new
library at 1:30 p.m., which all
society members are invited
to attend. Mrs. Jane Patton of
Panama City, Director of
Regional Libraries of North-
west Florida, is chairman of
the historical sector of this
committee and Jesse Stone
the co-chairman. Mr. Stone is
also a member of the Advisory
Committee on State Parks and
has been a member since 1958.
Mrs. R. H. Brinson reported
that the old cemetery has had
another facelifting. The
grounds have been cleaned,
weeded and mulched, the
grass mowed, shrubs trimmed
and replacements made when
needed. Many new plants have
been purchased and planted,
mainly azaleas and boxwood,
apd the pumphouse and
gazebo stained. The pump
house is to be shingled in the
very near future. After Work-
ing closely with the city
workers on this project for the
past two weeks, Mrs. Brinson
is justly proud of this accom-
plishment and the society
owes to her a debt of grati-
tude, as well as to the city

workers for their splendid
cooperation, with special
thanks to Mr. Wright and the
city commissioners.
Mrs. Ralph Swatts, Sr.,
president, commended Mrs.
Charles Browne on her recent
letter to The Star relative to
the willful destruction of city
property, with emphasis on
the gaping holes in the roof of
the new city pier.- As a result
of this letter, the holes are
being repaired and a $500
reward has been offered for
information leading to .the
The society is looking for-
ward to the opening of the new
Gulf County library October
23. and all members are urged
to attend.
