Several Discrepancies In Pres-
ent Charter Will Be Elimi-
nated; Elections Would Be
Held In September.
A local bill soon will be 'sub- '
emitted in the legislature by Rep-
resentative George Tapper provid-
-ing a new charter for the city of
Port St. Joe.
The new charter has been drawn
up under supervision of the Junior
'Chamber of Commerce and will
correct a number of discrepancies
in the present charter which have
developed through the addition of
various; amendments from time to
The new setup provides for four
commissioners and a. mayor-com-
missioner, the comminissioners to
run in four groups, and, all five
members to 'be voted upon at large.
The first election under the new
charter would be held September 2
of this year, with all five board
members to be elected at that
time. and taking office October '7.
The mayor and the commissioners
Jin groups 1 and 2 would be elected
.for terms of two years and the
commissioners In groups 3 and 4
would be named for terms of on'e
year, and thereafter the terms ot
all.would be for two years with an
election held every year.
A new section, not found in the
old, charter, has been inserted ,pro-
viding that, a petition may ,be tii
culated for recall of the mayor of
commissioners, and. also provides
.for the calling of a recall election
if a sufficient number of the regis-
tered, voters of the city (20 per
cent) express their desire for such
It also provides that the affirma-
tive. vote of three members of the
commission shall be nece-ssary to
adopt any ordinance or resolution.
,Under the present charter this sec-
tion was not amended when the
number o'f commissioners was in-
creased from three to five, and it
could have been possible for any
two members voting in the affirm-
ative to pass a measure opposed by
the other three members of the
With the changes mentioned and
a bit of rewording here and there
for the .better, the balance of th.e
new charter runs word: for word

One Language Idea .
Calls for New Spelling
More people speak English than
any other language in the world.
And that's too bad., because Eng-
iish is a very messy language.
This view comes in a report from
the. World Language Foundation,
an outfit that-believes everything
would be simpler if everybody
knew one language.
Thb catch is-what language?
English? Well, it has a 'head
start; more than 400.000,000 people
scattered' all over the world.'can
speak it. The next in line is Chi-
nese Manadarin, with 200,000,000-
but who, except for 200,000,000 Chi-
nese, wants to speak Mandarin?
Despite its. head start, English
is' no cinch to win th.e. one-world,
one-language race. English is tough
t'fr any foreigner. Even a native
spends years just learning how to
s'pell it. What to do?
The foundation is headed by Rob-
ert L. Owen, who thinks a new al-
,.habet is the answer. So he has
fixed' up a global alphabet, with 37
characters. representing, v er y
sound in any language. Because
?ach character stand's for a son;it,
Owen says. that English in this
global alphabet can be masters.t
in a few months.
But Frank C. Laubach, a special-
ist in phonetic alphabets, has an-
other idea. He'd like to keep the
same old 26 letters, but cl'aan up
the spelling. Other countries have
done it, -he said, why can't we?
About 20 per cent of all English
words,,- Laubach says, should be'
changed so that they are. spelled'
exactly as they are pronounced.
Then a foreigner (and' Americans,
too) could, learn the language
Now for an example of the ne;v,
spelling era. We now writs:

Sez she: "Well, go ahead and 'bust, but get out of my Ready-to-

above. We have 'given the Work clothes department a spring
cleaning! Speaking of spring cleaning brings up another matter:
ATTENTION! HOME-MAKERS in the city and on the beach!
It's CURTAIN TIME at Boyles Departm.nat Store! We.have
made a direct factory-to-you connection on this merchandise!
We'll save you money A Beacon Hill customer could hardly ,be-
lievy. her .yes and bought us entirely out of one number (and we
thought we had enough to last for months!) There's plenty more
styles priced from $1.59 to $3.95 a pair. Just take a look in this
department on the left as you walk into the store.
Observations behind' our counters: Mrs,. Fread. Perry
is another smiling, willing, hardworking mnamlber of our store fam-
ily (don't zay anything about it, but Fred got married' about the
time sheets were hardest to get but Fred got 'em. .
tls. won't tell yoi' where!) ,Mrs. Skipper says' her naw glasses
are easy on the eyes but hard on the ears (now she's got to see
the ear doctor!) Mrs. Chason gets off a package from Boyles
De:)art-nent S9tor^ to he:r daughter: in Atlanta nearly every Mon-
day morning, and says this merchandise gets preference to that
to be had in Atlanta.! (Whoopee!) Howard Kelly has PANT-
ITIS from selling! fine slacks. Mrs.. Laney takes a great deal of
pleasure in telling you how to "MAKE-IT" (dress, blouse or what-ta
you want to sew!) Mrs. Boyles says dinner is ready! Now, that's
changing the subject fast and brings us to a stopping place so we
can get ther- fastest to find the bestest. Our customers. find it
pays to do that, too!

Our Country Right or Wrong
THE GREAT QUESTION
Time flies! It seems but yesterday when
the shipyard at Panama City was going full
blast and a large number of Port St. Joe peo-
Ale men and women -were commuting to
that city daily and bringing home fat pay en-
velopes, our city overflowed on week-ends
with soldiers from Camp Gordon Johnston and
Tyndall Field, aircraft and armament plants
all over the nation were roaring full blast, and
tihe OPA was hanging like grim death to
-prices while soaring wages portended the mil-
lennium. A spirit of challenge filled the air.
Political drum beaters shouted that never
again would America tolerate a depression.
Unless our established system could find a
way -to guarantee comfort and security, the
system should be scrapped, they cried.
The gist of it was that groceries were more
important than freedom. Although history in'-
dicates that such a trade is impossible, they
encouraged the notion that in a pinch freedom
could somehow be swapped for groceries. It
was an "or else" challenge against nature it-
self, which is another way of saying it was a
cheap political gesture. And the chickens are
coming home to roost.
There is no comfort in the growing housing
-shortage, nor in the inevitable decline in liv-
ing standards generally. There is no security
-when prices and taxes rise to the point where
* families wonder how much longer they can
-nake both 'ends meet, when millions begin to
skimp on necessities. All of these things were
as inescapable as night following day from
the moment war was declared. The same con-
parently thought it might be otherwise.
The question now is, are we going to settle
,down and face our troubles like good Ameri-
cans, or are we going to try the "or else" path
of socialism and dictatorship?

DON'T SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER!
One of the famous' frontier saloons had this
sign prominently displayed: "Don't shoot the
piano player-he's doing the best he can."
That would be a good slogan to apply to
our storekeepers here in Port St. Joe in these
days of whirling dervish prices and variable
We're all griping about the fact that a bas-
ket of groceries that used to cost ten bucks
now runs to twenty or more, and that the old
dollar-ninety-five shirt carries a three-fifty
price tag. But that isn't the fault of Cecil Cos-
tin or Eimmett Daniels, or Glenn Boyles or J.
R. Chestnut or any of the other store owners
--and they don't like it any better than you
do, because it limits sales and irks the con-
sumer. Their unit profits are no larger than
they used to be -- and in. many cases are
smaller. And it also isn't their fault i. they
can't supply just what you want when you
want it. .Stocks are by no means conmip-2te
as yet, but they are being butilt up fairly fast
in most lines.
THAT NEW CITY CHARTER
This proposed new charter for the city of
Port St. Joe which is to be, set up by a legis-
lative bill, aroused your editor's curiosity as
to whether or not it contained a "joker" or
two, so we secured a copy of it and perused
it line by line throughout its 62 pages, but
could find nothing amiss.
The present charter has a number of irregu-
larities in it, which are straightened out in the
new charter, otherwise it follows word for
word the original.
We feel that the Junior Chamber of Com-
- merce, which is behind the change, has.done
an excellent job and one which we feel sure
the residents of our city will approve of.
Federal statisticians have just figured out
it costs $605.35 a year to buy clothes for a

decimal point is used for father.

presidents of the United States to

The house committee on consti-
tuitional amendments reported *the
state. constitution provides that no

of the United. States. proposed by
congress unless such legislature
shall have been, electedl-after., such

The committee stated, that since
the proposed amendment was not
submitted until 1947 and the mem-
bers of the house of representa-
tives were elected in 1949, the
legislature does. not have the au-
thority to pass on the proposal.

to the 1949 legislature.
'PER ANNUM' CAUSE OF
.ERROR BY LAWMAKER
A legislator's "error" last session
in believing that. "per annum"
meant "month-bynmonth" came to
light during the present legisla-
tive session when Representative
H. C. Barnhill of Crestview asked
his law-making associates to cor-
rect his mistake of two years ago.
What Barnhill intended, in a bilt
adopted last session, he explained,
was to raise the salary of county
conrnissioners of his county from
$40 to $75 a month. But the bil!
as passed lowered their salary to
around $6 a month because of the
"per annum" clause.
Barnhill stated, that the -bill had
been ignored and, the commission-
er, paid $40 a month anyway.
