To Deliver Musical
Will Present "The Life of Man-
Creation To Eternity," At
A musical sermon, 'The Life of
Man-Creation to Eternity," will
be given in spoken word and music
by Rev. Donald Graham, tenor, on
Monday evening at 7:30 o'clock at
the Presbyterian Church. -
Sometimes referred to as "The
Singing Chaplain," Mr. Graham
served with the 41st Infantry Di
vision in the Philippines campaign
and in Ihe initial occupation of the
Hiroshima area of Japan. He grad-
uated in theology from Westmin-
ster Thelogical Seminary in Phila-
delphia and studied voice under
Jean Teslof of New York. Mr. Gra-
ham's unique ministry in musical
sermons has been heard from coast
to coast, in churches, of more" than
a score of denominations.
As its title indicates, "The Life
of Man-Creation to Eternity," be-
gins with the Bible account of the
creation of Adam and Eve. Haydn's
description of the latter, used by
Graham, might be classified as a
sacred love ballad. Other oratorios
included in the program are "The
Messiah" and 'Moses In Egypt,"
both by Handel; "Abriham," by
Molique; "The Redemption," by
Gounod. Two outstanding numbers
by Molette, composer of the well-
known "Lord's Prayer," are in-
cluded, "The Twenty-third Psalm"
and "David and Goliath." Quite a
number of favorite hylnns and gos-

Our Country g Right or Wrong
NEW LEADER FOR NEXT FOUR YEARS
Now that the spectacular inauguration of Ful-
ler Warren as governor of Florida is over, chief
interest centers in the kind of government the
state will have under ,his leadership for the next
It is an interest backed by a strong belief that
the new chief executive will live up to the
pledges he made and kept repeating during the
years he was working his way to the office he
now holds. The large vote he received in the
two primaries shows the confidence the people
of the state have in his ability and integrity, and
we believe he realizes that this places upon him
a heavy responsibility for making good his cam-
Fuller's promises were numerous, but all of
them can probably be lumped together by say-
ing that the main aim is to improve the lot of
.everyone in Florida and give the state a period
of progress as yet undreamed of.
His main pledge was that of economy, and we
can all truthfully say that not only our state gov-
ernment, but our -county and city governments,
can all stand a lot of this economy. We hope
-that Governor Warren will set an example that
-will be emulated throughout the state's county
,and city governments.
TWO OPPOSED IDEAS
For most of us in Port St. Joe our contacts
with retailing are limited to a, relatively small
number of stores which we personally patron-
ize. So we may lose sight of the fact that retail-
ing is one of the mightiest economic forces in
The statistics are extremely impressive. Retail
trade provides employment for more than 8,-
'000,000 people. Something like 70 per cent of
the disposable income, of America's consumers
crosses its counters. During 1948 the volume of

Widening of Street To Begin
Widening of Fifth Street from

Monday. Cost of this project has
been set at $128,921, of which $50,-
.222 is a federal grant, the balance
of the cost to be taken care of by
local interests owning the property
on both sides of the street. The

Work Starts On Bank Building
Preliminary work started Mon-
day at the corner of Long Avenue
and Fifth Street for construction
of the long-awaited bank building.
The structure will be 50 by 110
feet, two stories high, of reinforced
concrete, and in addition to the
bank will house the telephone ex-
business done reached the astronomical figure
But size alone doesn't tell the story. The fact
that retailing is one of the most aggressively
competitive of enterprises has been responsible
for giving us more and better goods, at lower
prices, than any other people enjoy. In countries
where retailing is owned or controlled by the
state, a6 opposite condition exists. For instance,
t9e Soviet authorities recently approved the
opening of some "free trade" stores in Russian-
occupied Germany, where goods may be bought
without ration coupons. Shoes sell for $54 to $72,
stockings for $7 to $12, and so on down the line.
The whole idea behind these stores is to get the
last possible penny out of those who can afford
to patronize them, in order to drain off excessive
buying power. The idea behind American re-
tailing is to give the most for the least money.
Retailing is the artery through which the
products of farm and factory flow. It has made
mass production workable by providing an ef-
ficient mass distribution machine within easy
reach of every family in the country. It is a
mainstay of our whole complex economy.
HE WISHED FOR PLENTY
Gardner Campbell, writing in the Wakefield,
Mass., Daily Item just before Christmas, ex-
pressed the secret desires of many newspaper-
men when he listed the gifts he wanted.
"Reporters who get to be editors have a yearn-
ing to perform some moderate atrocity on
writers who think no story can be told, or even
recorded, without a heavy sprinkling of superla-
tives and various lauditory, complimentary or
defensive adjectives,". Campbell pointed out.
That is why his list included a gown or dec-
oration that isn't "pretty," a hostess who doesn't
look "charming," a table that isn't "attractively
set," a cake, bouquet or gift that isn't "beauti-
ful," refreshments that are not dainty, delicious,
delectable or delightful.
A meeting at which "a general good time" was
not had by all or at which no "enthusiasm" was
shown, an attendance that wasn't "unusually"
large, or a Christmas tree that wasn't "gaily"
"Doesn't anybody ever run something that is
a flop?" the writer asked. "Are there no dis-
tressed brides who look sloppy, or doesn't any
hostess or program chairman ever louse up the
refreshments or the entertainment?"
He opined that "there must be some meetings
for which only a few show up, and some of the
programs must fail to evoke 'enthusiastic sup-
port' or 'approval'."
"In other words," he concluded, "doesn't any-
body ever have something once in a while that

Postoffice Shows Growth
According to figures compiled by
Postmaster 1. A. Drake, the Port
St. Joe postoffice shows an in-
crease in revenue for 1938 over
1937 of $4,070.74. Revenue for the
year 1937 came to $2,432.72, while
1937 produced $6,581.87 and 1938
$10,652.61, an increase of more than
400 per cent in the past two years.

them that Armstrong had knocked

All of which caused Carl Arm-
strong of Port St. Joe some embar-
rassment, since it wasn't him. It
seems some of his folks in Blounts-
town saw the item and phoned him
asking if he needed any money, and
he's also taken a lot of ribbing
from his many friends-all of whom
