The Florida Railroad and Public
Utilities Commission last week or-
dered a recess in the hearing in-
volving the St. Joseph Telephone

for adjustments in its local ex-
change rates and charges for tele-
The company introduced as evi-

sent evidence based on a 12-month
period ending September 30, 1951.
If permission is granted for the
rate increase the people of Altha,
Apalachicola, Blountstown, Carra-
belle, Chattahoochee, Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka will pay $3.50
per month for home telephones and

The present rates in Port St. Joe

Why Parking Time
Limit Put In Effect
Assert Setup Sidetracks Plan
of City Commission To
Put In Meters
While the two-hour parking limit
on Reid Avenue is not yet being en-
forced due to the fact that the city
is waiting for signs to be placed
along the street, apparently a lot of
people are getting riled up over the
fact that they can't park their cars
on the street all day if they so de-
sire. And so, it is apparent, they
are raking the merchants over the
The merchants along Reid simply
love people, because people are the
ones who keep them in business by
buying their wares, hence the fol-
lowing epistle which they requested
be printed in The Star:
"The Port St. Joe Merchants' As-
sociation has been severely criti-
cized and censored with the threat
of some people refusing to do busi-
ness with them anymore because
they interceded with the city com-
mission in having a two-hour park-
ing limit established on Reid Ave-
nue. Yes, the Merchants' Associa-
tion is responsible for it, but why?
"About a year ago your city com-
mission considered putting parking
meters on Reid Avenue, and went
as far as to receive estimates on
installation and revenue to be de-
rived from such meters.
'"The merchants found-' olit bout
this..and appeared before the c6m-
mission requesting that the park-
ing'meter project not'be considered
and that the merchants in turn
would endeavor to have the cars
of their clerks and their own cars
parked on side streets and alleys
to provide parking places for visi-
tors and others who have business
to attend to on Reid Avenue.
"This, however, did not last very
long, and the merchants realized
that some step by the cit was im-
perative, and therefore requested
that a two-hour parking limit be
established with the view of pre-
venting the installation of parking
meters. The city so advised the
Merchants' Association then, that
if this didn't provide parking space
that other steps would 'be taken.
"Do not blame the merchants. All
information passed to the public
has stated that it was at the re-
quest of the Merchants' Associa-
tion. As a matter of fact, the mer-
chants were trying to save" money
for their customers in Ipreventing

Couple Revived By Artifictal
Patricia Griner, 9-year-old-daugh-
ter of Mr: and Mrs. James Grfer of
this city,' is alive 'today 'dhe to
a knowledge .of artificial respira-
tion by Parker Hart of Beacon Hill
and spur-of-the-moment action by an
unknown young man driving by on
che coastal highway.
The Griners were occupying one
of the Patrick cottages at Beacon
Hill and Patricia and her brother,
neither of whom could swim, were
playing in the shallow water at the
edge of the beach, using an inflated
inner tube as a raft. Suddenly they
found themselves in deep water, as
the tube had drifted with them. Ap-
parently Patricia became excited
and fell off the tul~a.
H. T. Hudon of Bainbridge, Ga.,
who was on the beach but could not
swim, seized another inner tube
and started to the rescue of the two
At this moment the unknown
young man stopped his car on the
highway, shucked down to his un-
derwear and proceeded to ring in
Patricia, her 'brother and Hudon.
Parker Hart, learning of the acci-
dent, rushed to the beach where the
girl lay, to all intents dead, and ad-
ministered artificial respiration un-
til she began breathing, a period of
about 20 minutes.
The Comforter Funeral Home am-
bulance was called and carried the
girl -to the"Port St- Ju -Munl a ipal
Hospital, where she was treated for
shock and given oxygen.
'Dr. Wayne Hendrix stated that
the quick and efficient artificial
respiration given 'by' Mr. Hart was
responsible for saving the girl's
The unknown rescuer of the three
waited until the girl was put into
the ambulance, took a shower,
donned his clothes and drove on.

Swatts, president, presiding. The
next two 'hours were very profit-
ably spent in a thorough and inten-
sive study of the work of each offi-
cer and ways and means of creat-
ing interest in the work of the so-
ciety as .a whole.
At noon a delicious buffet lunch-
eon of ham, salad, pickles, hot rolls,
punch and cake was served.
A short afternoon session was
held at which time plans and poli-
cies for the year were discussed

sion was helpful and .worthwhile,

would mean that the number of
persons employed in cutting and
shipping wood to the mill will be
increased from around the present

More water will also be required,
and it is understood that a large
settling basin will be built on the

Our Country Right or Wrong
CAN ANYTHING BE MORE USELESS?
Several times in the past year or so the editor
of The Star has commented on waste of the tax-
payers' money by the federal government in is-
suing pamphlets of various sorts that are no
earthly good to anyone in this country but tend
to keep a staff of hangers-on on the public pay-
roll for political reasons. Now comes another
pamphlet which tops them all.
Our beneficient government has just issued a
booklet, 922-822-51 No. 94, a scholarly treatise
on the economics of operating a race track. It
informs the reader how to choose the dates for a
track meeting; the effect of the size of the purses
upon the caliber of the bang-tails; how long it
takes to put a track on a paying basis; the ele-
ments of race track costs, and the sources of
Naturally, upon reading this informative book-
the "goat" so many times he has probably started
eating tin cans for breakfast.
Harpooning Warren has replaced pinning the
tail on the donkey as a drawing room sport. Any-
body who wants to be accepted in the best com-
pany nowadays had better make it his business
to casually knife the governor first time the con-
Are you discouraged about the world's foul
state? Just give ol' Fuller the devil a few minutes.
You'll feel much better.
Was the toast burned' at breakfast? Was the
coffee weak? Were the eggs raw? Did the cook
quit? Call on the governor for an explanation.
We readily admit we've shot a few editorial
barbs Warren's way. We voted for Dan McCarty
and expressed some doubt as to the soundness of
the people's decision when Fuller edged him out.
Yet we can't help feel Warren has made a pretty
fair governor. At any rate, the things he's being
bedeviled about today certainly are no evidence
he's been a bad governor.
Keep smiling-and buy Defense Bonds.
