two choice tomatoes that he had

With Six Cases In City, Authori-
ties Urge Parents. To Have
With six cases of diphtheria in
Port St. Joe, local health authori-
ties urge parents to have their
children immunized against this
highly communicable and danger-
It is pointed out that infants and
pre-school-age children are most
!susceptible to this and other com-
municable. diseases, and that the
highest rate of deaths in Florida,
I due to the diseases for which
there are protective measures, oc-
curs in these age groups.
f It-is urged, that immunization
be obtained from private, family
physicians, but those who feel fi-
nancially unable to go to a pri-
vate doctor may secure treatment
at the local health office.
Dr. E. F. Hoffman, director of
the Florida Bureau *of Epidemi-
ology, states that the number of
diphtheria cases and, deaths re-
ported each year in Florida indi-
cates that the job of protecting
our children from the disease is
far from complete. Babies should
be immunized against diphtheria
between 9 and 18 months of age,
preferably before the end of the
Dr. Hoffman recommends that
children should, be immunized
against whooping cough, smallpox
and typhoid, stating that every
person should take stock of his
health status, and parents should
bring their entire family's im-
munization (protective) status up

that time you will have to take a

Our Country Right or Wrong
CAN'T TAKE IT!
The bitter attitude taken by Lex Green
following his defeat in the gubernatorial run-
off shows that he can't take defeat in stride,
and it also indicates that Floridians selected
the right man for the office of governor for
the next four years.
Green's statement, published on page one
of this issue, shows that Florida narrowly es-
caped four years of littleness, pettiness, bally-
hoo, cheapness and personalities, which would
have emanated from the state capitol had he
been sent there as governor.
Lex Green, always rated as a clever poli-
tician-and we say "politician," not '"states-
man," for he could never be the latter-has
signed his death warrant as far ashis politi-
cal life in Florida is concerned. For twenty
long years he has been feeding at the political
trough, but now he is through. No longer
will he be able to dip his hand into the pork
barrel and hand out juicy political patronage.
It's too bad, Lex, but it looks as though
you may be forced to work for a living unless
during your twenty years' ride on the gravy
train you socked away enough dinero to keep
you on plush for the rest of your life.
WATCH OUT FOR CHILDREN
With vacation days here, motorists of Port
St. Joe are asked to be on the alert at all
times for youngsters who will be romping
everywhere, not thinking of accidents.
Have your brakes checked, keep your speed
down, watch your tires. Don't spoil any
child's vacation by injuring him; don't ruin
your life by having on your conscience the
knowledge that you have injured a child when
it could have been prevented by following
everyday simple safety rules.
ing these small inconveniences, friends of Congressman Lex Green
two of the party hitchhiked back that he got defeated for .the of-
to St. Joe to pick up another tire fice of highest honor in the state.

The boys managed, to get in a
