Pipe Line Vote

Is Being Held Up

By Long Debate

President Roosevelt Urges Com-
pletion As Necessary Part
Of National Defense

From present indications it be-
gins to look as though opponents
to completion of the Southeastern
Pipe Line company's line through
Georgia are staging a filibuster in
order to keep the matter from be-
ing brought to a vote before the
legislative session ends March 22.
According to word received here
Wednesday there are 27 members
of the Georgia house of represen-
tatives scheduled to be heard in
the general debate. Of the total,
seven intend to speak for passage
of the pipe line bill, while 20 will
oppose the measure.
Friends of the bill giving pipe
line companies permission to build
across Georgia are stressing na-
tional defense in arguments, while
opponents see "a diabolical plan"
to give corporations control of the
state.
President Roosevelt, in a letter
to Chairman Lea of the congres-
sional interstate commerce com-.
mittee, placed pipe lines in the
categori-y of`ia-tional defense and
recommended early completion of
the Port St. Joe Chattanooga,
Tenn., line and the line from Ba-
ton Rouge, La., to Norfolk, Va., via
Atlanta.
It was pointed out tli th're
is at present 300,000 miles of pipe
lines in the nation, with practic-
ally none in this section.


C. Y. Mayo Dies As

Result of Injuries

Sustained When Car Left Highway
And Plunged Twelve Feet
Into Crelk

Charles Y. Mayo, 75, father of
Mrs. B. H. Smith of this city, died
Thursday of last week in a Panama
City hospital from injuries re-
ceived when the car he was driv-
ing left the highway and plunged
12 feet into Sand creek west of
this city. The attending physician
stated that the accident probably
was due to a heart attack.
T. S. Singletary, who was driv-
ing a car directly behind Mr.
Mayo, and witnessed the fatal
crash, extricated the aged man
from the wrecked vehicle and
rushed him to the office of a local
doctor, where he was given treat-
ment and, then removed to Panama
City.
'Besides Mrs. Smith, Mr. Mayo is
survived by two other daughters,
Mrs. J. K. Chambers of Tampa and
Mrs. S. P. Dale of Oak Hill, Ala.,
and two sons, A. D. of Quincy and
C. Y. Jr., of Tampa.
Interment took place in the Oak
Hill, Ala., cemetery.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully .weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

IT'S A LOUSY SYSTEM, BUT .
Despite the stern denunciation of econo-
mists, America's well-nigh universal time
payment plan of doing business continues to
expand and flourish. Once, in the dim and
distant past, it was the badge of solid citi-
zenry to "pay as you go." Now, Americans
of good standing buy automobiles and ice
boxes, get married, have babies-on the cuff.
In keeping with this trend is the announce-
ment this week by heads of 17 of the nation's
leading airlines that, starting March 1,
tickets will be made available on a regular
monthly payment basis. The idea, it ap-
pears, is one that last year many railroads
tried with singular success. R:ii'\v;ys claimed
that but for the plan 63 pel cent of those
who availed themselves of its advantages
otherwise would have staved home. This,
then, should enable airlines affected to tap
a vast new travel market, making," possible,
almost immediately, substantial line improve-
ments and expansions as well as eventual
fare reductions in proportion to the patronage
gained.
SOnce we would have condemned such
flimsy business methods out of hand-now,
we're not so sure. When we hark back to


THE LITTLE BABY


WHO WASN'T THERE


This is the amazing story of Mrs. Grace Armstrong 35, of Winter,
Wis., who called Dr. H. A. Smith to be taken to the hospital for
confinement. The doctor's car became stalled in a snowdrift---he
doctor summoned a passing motorist. Mrs. Armstrong, under opi-
ates, was transferred to the other car and rushed to the delivery
room of the hospital, where it was found the baby was missing.
Sheriff August Zierer, at that moment, called the hospital and told
Doctor Smith to hurry back to his stalled automobile, where he
found a farmer, Joseph Siefert, with the baby whom he had found

WOMAN'S CLUB NOTES
The executive committee meet-
ing of the Port St. Joe Woman's
Club was held Thursday afternoon
of last week at the home of Mrs.
R. W. Smith. During the meeting
recommendations were passed to
be presented to the club.
Mrs. W. A. Roberts, Jr., was in
charge of the American home de-
partment meeting held Wednesady
afternoon at the home of Mrs. R.
W. Smith. Plans were made for
the luncheon and hobby show to
be held March 2.&
The regular meeting of the club
was held yesterday afternoon at
the club rooms in the Centennial


building. Guest speaker for the oc-
casion was Mrs,. Millard Davidson
of Marianna, who spoke on "Mod-
ern Composers and Music of To-
day," also playing the prize-win-
ning piece, of the year, of which
she is the composer. A short busi-
ness discussion was held and

what nostalgic old-timers still call "the good
old days," we recall that then few people
journeyed' any distance or enjoyed anything
other than the simplest pleasures .of life, for
the good and sufficient reason that they did
not have enough cash to pay outright for the
privilege. Now, because of the fact that we
can pay for such things a little at a time,
Americans g.o places, see thing:,, wear better
clothes, live in" homes that are brighter,
cleaner, healthier, more inviting-homes that
will not be theirs, possibly, for 20 years-
when the last payment will be made.
It's a rotten system, we know. And maybe
because of it.the country is going to the

In browsing through the Encyclopedia
Britannica the other day we ran across this
statement in reference to billions, trillions,
quadrillions, and so on: "The higher number.
names have only an historical interest. The
need for very large numbers is confined to
scientists." We would call this rather humor-
ous after reading the statement of the United
States Treasury Department.

Cesar Romero Has Dual Role As
'Cisco Kid' In Exciting Film
At Port Saturday

Everything-romance, action and
thrills-is multiplied by two in the
fast-moving Cisco Kid film, "Ro-
mance of the Rio Grande," playing
Saturday only at the Port theatre.
Suave Cesar Romero again por-
Itrays the colorful caballero created
:by 0. Henry, and turns in a grand
performance.
SCisco's latest adventure takes
place in old Arizona when a ten-
derfoot from Spain, who is Cisco's
exact double, arrives -o take over
his grandfather's ranch. A con-
niving cousin sends out a gang of
killers to intercept the gentleman.
But Cisco intercedes and!, posing
as the gentleman from Spain, goes
to the ranch where he finds lovely
Patricia Morison and Lynne Rob-
erts.
From there on it's Cisco against
a shrewd and deadly schemer.
Cisco puts him to rout and wins
the fairest flower in Arizona-for
his double!

by Ricardo Cortez as the villain.

HISTORIC OLD CHURCH
AT MARIANNA BURNS

The historic old St. Luke's Epis-
copal church at Marianna was de-
stroyed, by fire of unkonwn origin
early Sunday morning. Plans are
underway for rebuilding.
The church was built in 1879 to
replace its predecessor which was
burned during the Battle of Mari-

the War Between the States. The
parish was organized March 7, 1838.

Now you can get a Beautyrest on terms that
make it especially easy to own the world's
finest mattress.

The Beautyrest is not like other mattresses.,
Every spring in it is separate from the next.
So each "gives" independently. Heavier
parts of your bo(dy can't pull springs away
from lighter parts. You get proper buoyant
sleep every minute of the night. In durabil-


ity tests by the United States Testing Com-
pany, the Ieautyrest lasted three times longer
than other mattresses. Simmons guarantees
that it will give you 10 years' service.

See the Beautyrest during our 18th Anniver-
sary Sale. Learn about its many advantages.
Then, if you feel that it is the mattress for
you, use our special "Beautyrest Anniversary
Terms."
