'Mickey Stone, president of the

the annual observaince'is sponsored
by Kiwanis International and the
National Kid's Day Foundation,
Inc. 'thousands of Kiwanis. Clubs
'annually observe the day in co-op-

"Plans for the fourth annual cel,
ebration of National Kid's Day here
are almost complete," Mickey went
oni "In keeping with the purpose of
the 'day, which is to attract more
attention tq the problems, of under-
privileged youth and to raise funds
to meet these needs, our entire pro-
gram is designed to provide ma-
terial help for less privileged chil-
dren in our community."
Mickey stressed that Kid's Day
is not a commercial vehicle. "The
only ones who benefit by it are un
derpriyileged boys and girls," he
explained. ".All funds raised through

Kiwanis International has been
active in youth work for 37 years

.principal activities of the organiza-
tion. "Look how well Kiwan is clubs

pointed out. "More than a million

tioned against a possible tendency
to. overlook youth problems because
of the tense national political cam-

before. Kiwanians and other civic-
minded residents of Port St. Joe
will have an opportunity through

Two Men Die In
Fall From San Bias
Painters, Tied Together With
Rope, Hurtle 100 Feet
Two men met violent death Tues-
day afternoon at Cape San Blas
when they fell from the topmost
point of the lighthouse tower to
the sand below, better than a hun-
dred feet, one apparently dying in-
stantly and the other managing to
hang on to life for another hour,
though terribly crushed.
The two, Angelo G. Tzuoanis, 61,
a native of Greece, and Frank M.
Wiley, 28, both of New Orleans,
were contracting painters and had
been repainting the lighthouse the
past two weeks, the job to have
been completed Saturday. They
were working on the light housing
at the time of their death and were
tied' together with a rope as a
About 4:30 they had decided to
call it a day and started to come
down off the tower, according to a
witness who had casually glanced
up as he passed the structure. A
moment later he heard a loud, wail-
ing scream, but thought it sounded
like a dog," had ,been, struck by a,
small bulldozer working on the res-

of Wiley was shattered, with. the
hands pointing at 4:35.
According to W. P. Comforter,
local mortician, Wiley was still
breathing when he arrived at the
scene, and he was placed in a
trailer attached to a coast guard
jeep and brought out to the ambu-
lance which could not get to the
lighthouse due to deep sand. He
was placed in the ambulance under
oxygen and rushed to the Port St.
Joe Municipal Hospital, where he
lived until' 5:30. Cause of death ap-
parently was a crushed skull. The
ambulance returned later to 'bring
in the body of Tzuoanis, who, from
indications, died instantly.
The body of Tzuoanis was claimed
Wednesday by his brother 'part-
ner in the contracting firm,, and"
was taken to New Orleans. The
body of Wiley was carried to Mari-
anna yesterday for shipment to
New Orleans, where his wife, who
is in a hospital suffering from in-

Our Country Right or Wrong
Ike has sounded his battle-cry. "There is only
one issue in this campaign," he told a rafter-
raising, aisle-jamming overflow crowd in Phila-
delphia, "that's the mess in Washington."
This was the "formal opening" of the Eisen-
hower presidential campaign, and it followed on
the heels of a two-day areial warmup Southern
tour, where an estimated 500,000 persons in At--
lanta, Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, Birmingham
and Little Rock heard and cheered the invading
general who had been promised "a corporal's
guard" for his audience by the Democrats. The
Southerners," he told his Philadelphia hearers,
"stand ready to rise up in their wrath" to remove
the present administration. "I'll remember those
Rebel yells for a long time," he added.
"Seven years after victory in World War II,"
he said, "we are perilously close to World War
III. .. Seven years ago we had won the great-
est crusade for Freedom, and today Freedom
falters and Communism crusades."
In blaming the Korean War on the administra-
tion, a roar of applause greeted his charge that
Washington had "abandoned China to the Com-
munists. In paying tribute to our troops in Ko-
rea, he declared: "Let us determine now that we
will establish a government of which they will
be proud when they return.
"In this atomic age, victory is impossible in
global war. The only way to win World War III
is to prevent it. Don't say to me," he demanded,
"'The job is too big.' Since when has any job
been too big? Let's get going!"
In short, Ike took Philadelphia lock, stock and
Liberty Bell.- The Quakers and the Pennsylvania
Dutch like their talk simple and blunt. They like
a soldier whose Holy Grail is Peace.
It could be a lot of us do.

Beverage Dealers Must
Observe Closing Hours,
J. S. Shirey, district supervisor
of the Pensacola district for the
state beverage department, Satur-
day issued a warning that the de-
parment would crack down on vio-
lators and "strict enforcement" of
closing hours will -be enacted.
Ssaid 'Shirey: "Notice is hereby
given to all dealers licensed to sell
intoxicating beverages and cigarets
in Bay, Gulf, Jackson, Holmes, Cal-
houn and Washington counties that
we are expecting them to abide by
the law, 100 per cent. If the law in
your county states that the closing
hours are from 12 midnight Sat-
urday to 7 a. m. Monday, we are
asking you to abide by same."
Heretofore the Pensacola office
has found it difficult to enforce the
laws in all counties, but a district
office now has been set up in Pan-
ama City to take care of the abeve-
named six counties.

Florida's Seminoles were origin-

from the Creek Confederacy and
overran Florida after the destruc-
tion of the Apalachee and Tumicua
tribes by the English in 1702-03.
Their warlike qualities got them
in trouble twice with the United
States. In 1817-18, a U. S. force un-
der the leadership of General An-
drew Jackson invaded the then
Spanish-held state to curb their
border raids into Georgia.
By a treaty signed in 1832 they
pledged themselves to move to the
new Indian Territory in the West.
They repudiated that treaty and
touched off the seven-year war in

time I hear from Gus, the fish are
biting, and when I come down and
don't catch any, he tells me they
bit yesterday. Consequently, I am
disappointed and'beginning to doubt
Gus' word. How about giving us a
little fishing 'dope each week so we
can.plan ahead to come down and
catch a few.
Best regards to you, and may you
catch the "limit" every day.
Well, now, Charles, it's generally
the same way with. me lately-when
I go out the fishing were '.'biting
yesterday." Don't have time to cir-
culate much, so haven't heard many.
fish stories lately. However, per-
haps when some of our ardent Izaak
