Fund Drive For
Off to Good Start
Local Committee, Making House-
to-House Canvass, Reports
The local drive for fund's for the
new Crippled, Children's Home ot
,West Florida is off to a good start
with $274 already collected by the!
committee, and it is hoped the en-
tire quota of $800 will be collected I
in a short time. i
The committee tn charge of the;
drive consists of Mrs. A: L. Wara,
chairman'; Mrs. Robert Tappot,
Mrs. D. B. Lay, Mrs. B. E. Kenney,
Mrs. C. G. Costin, Mrs. Howard
Taunton, Mrs. Jesse Stone, Mra.
W. H. Howell, Mrs. Harry Mc-
Knight and Mrs. Ralph Swatts, and
these workers are contacting bust-
ness house and civic organizations
as well as making a house-to-house
canvass of the city.
Everyone is urged to give and to
give generously to this cause, as
an adequate crippled children's
home is one of the greatest needs
of West Florida.
At the recent crippled children's
,clinic held here by the American
Legion, 42 children were in at-
tendance, 13 of whom were sent
to the crippled children's home at
Pensacola for treatment. The fact
that there are at least 42 crippled
children in this section should
make us, realize the great need for
a well-equipped and modern hos-
pital in this section of- the state
for their care.
The present home is inadequate.
It is small, having but four bed-
rooms, and, is poorly equipped.
The new hospital is to be as fine
as money can 'buy, staffed with the
best available doctors and nurses
and supplied, with the best In fur-
niture and equipment.
So everyone is urged to be as
generous as possible with their
contributions to this worthy cause.

Our Country Right or Wrong
BE ALIVE ON THE FIFTH
Fireworks instead of big guns will be heard
this Fourth of July. For the first time in five
years, America will be at peace on the day
dedicated to her independence an indepen-
ence just eraffirmed and strengthened in the
costliest and bloodiest test in her history.
It should be a great day.
It can be a great day-if it is a day of sane
and oyful thanksgiving that the courage and
resolution of the United States have once
again kept -her free from tyranny.
But it 'will be a -tragic day if-as has hap-
pened so often in the past-hundreds die of
accidents due to carelessness.
Many WILL die--but let us endeavor to
see that none die here in Port St. Joe.
National Safety Council records show that
last July 8,700 persons were killed in acci-
dents, a large number of them as a result of
the Independence Day celebration. Perhaps it
is even more significant today to remember
1941 and our last peacetime July. That month
brought 9,700 accidental deaths.
Peace brought an end to killing only on the,
battlefield. Since V-J Day the accident toll'
has skyrocketed to near-record highs-up 44
per cent in traffic alone.
The reasons are natural. Plenty of gas and
more leisure. Release from restraint and re--
strictions. No wartime patriotic urge. A long-
deferred desire to blow off steam- with a little
fun and relaxation.
Add to that worn-out cars and tires, de-
teriorated highways, a carefree spirit that too
often becomes a careless spirit, and you have
a dark prospect for. this Fourth of July and
the entire vacation season.
The tragic and ironic part of it is that so
many Americans, after sacrificing and risking
so much to preserve life and freedom, will lose
it irrevocably and needlessly in a moment of
It's a plain, simple fact that 8,000 to 10,000
of us will be killed in July accidents this year,
unless we do something about it. If enough
people recognize the fact that accidents can
and do happen to anyone, not just to an un-
known John Jones, then the July toll could
be cut down considerably.
Let's celebrate the Fourth this year in the
true spirit. Let's make it a joyous holiday
here in Port St. Joe, dedicated to the freedom
of our country, bearing in mind that a num-
ber of our young men gave their lives in the
war just ended that we might retain that
freedom. And let's make that freedom a re-
ality by avoiding accidents that threaten to
rob many Americans of their precious and
So have fun on the Fourth --but be alive
on the Fifth!
England's houeswives are "organized,"' and
they continue to plan a strike for, not higher

were putting a rather small cart before a

How are they going to grade their pay-
scale? Few newly-married housewives really
earn the wages that are earned, if not re-
ceived, by the housewife who has been cook-

The first railroad in Florida
came into being during the year
1836 when 22 miles of railroad be-

the Tallahassee Pail Road, as the
line was called, deserved the
pomp and' ceremony befitting such
a momentous event,' local ofliciW.
dom and, divers citizens turned out
en masse all along the route.
The maiden run was success-
fully launched from Tallahassee
and, all went well until the mules
balked five miles outside of Port
Leon. The stubborn critters just
sat down in the middle of the track
nor could the frantic "engineer"
budge them. 'The "run"' was fi-
nally completed by using a pair
of 'orrowd drait horses.

to the mules.
