After much deliberation among
the students of Port St. Joe High

the recision that something must
be done to erradicate the vanda-
lism that has, lately, occurred to'.
frequently in our school.
Whereupon the student council
called a meeting of the entire stu-
dent body to discuss this problem
before the council. No immediate
conclusion was reached but the
problem was presented in such a
manne- .that the response 'to wil,

It has been proposed and passed
upon that in order to achieve our

It will consist of the following:

Supervisor, Superintendent, Minis-
ter, County Judge (Juvenile), Rep-
resentatives from- eaah -hone ro'hu.,
Mayor, 2 or 3 parents, Sheriff.
This is not only a job for the
school but to eveiy citizen of this
community to see that these wrong
doings are. copreoted an" 'i-.; l,,-
prevent further occurrances.
We implicitly urge your support
in this project,to help make our

The Florida State Legislature
last week voted on a $350.00 per
year raise for each teacher unit.in
the State of Florida.
Governor McCarty proposed a
$300.00 raise for the teachers and
the Florida Educational Association
was asking for $560 in keeping
with the Minimum Foundation pro-
gram set up in the state in 1947.
According to Cecil G. Costin, Jr.,
Representative from Gulf County
the House of Representatives re-
ceived the bill last week and by
force of resolutions the amount of
the raise was jacked up as high as
$560 per year but lack of support
killed the bills and gave.the nod of
assent for the $350 raise.
ICostin stated that he voted for
the $560 raise which was defeated.
According to Costin the request
for the raise started at the $300
,the Governor recommended and
climbed steadily by resolutions un-
til it reached the $560 mark. Cos-
tin stated that each time a new
and higher resolution was intro-
duced he voted for it.
According to the state record -...
t ui-'. uts-Flornua iii- int [u.in ie
top of the nation- in' pay 'and the
state itself is 43rd in income.
It will be noted that this $350
per year is for each teacher unit
in the state. At present Gulf Coun-
ty has 85 teacher units and are
within their units allowed. If Gulf
County had to employ more than
85 teachers then each teacher
would not receive the full raisea:as
set down by the Legislators.

MILEAGE AKER "6" WINS SWEEPSTAKES!
Score a blazing victory for Ford's dollar-saving gas economy! Ford's high-
compression Mileage Maker "6" with Overdrive beat every car entered
in this year's Mobilgas Economy Run, regardless of size or weight, to
sweep the sweepstakes! Ford's winning average was 56.70 ton-miles per
gallon.* And Ford's high-compression 110-h.p. Strato-Star V-8 with
Overdrive was right up there in economy, too, with a record of 48.55
ton-miles per gallon!
The winning Ford was a regular production car, just like thousands
of other '53 Fords you see on the road today. This 1,206-mile trip from
Los Angeles to Sun Valley covered all types of driving conditions. The
route threaded throughcity traffic, where stop-and-go driving tests an
engine's fuel economy under the toughest conditions ... and out along
the highways of four western states.
The Ford Mileage Maker "6" took all this in stride, maintaining
a speed above the required 44.25 m.p.h. minimum, to finish 1st in the
sweepstakes! What better proof is there that Ford is the thriftiest car
of all? What better way to show why Ford is worth more when you
buy it ... worth more when you sell it!
See...Value Check... Test Drive

TON-MILES PER GALLON*
Ford is the first car in its weight class ... in the history
of the Economy Run ... to win top honors in ton-miles
per gallon over all other cars regardless of size or freight.
STe AAA Contest Board determines the winner by a "ton-mile per gallon" formula to insure equal chance for all
cars in each class regardless of size and weight. Ton-miles per gallon equals the car weight (including passengers)
in ons, multiplied by number of miles traveled, divided by number of gallons of gasoline consumed.

A LITTLE.BIT OF DIGNITY
Sunday marked the beginning of the base-
ball season in Port St. Joe and the Gulf Coast
League. Sunday saw a game here between
Apalachicola and Port St. Joe. The game was
clean, hard-fought and free from argument or
strife. It was good clean fun and relaxation
for most everyone concerned. Naturally, the
baseball games are planned as a source of re-
creation, relaxation and a thing of enjoyment.
To enjoy something, one must like that activity
and be in pleasant surroundings and conditions
conducive to enjoyment.
The game Sunday practically met all these
requirements. We say practically, because it
was lacking in complete fulfillment of the needs
of recreation. The weather was fine. The at-
titude of the players and the audience was

ternoon was one that happens at every gather-
ing of this type, no matter what the day, occa-
sion, or the time. We are referring to the few
who came to the ball game drunk or became
drunk during the course of the game.
If a person wants to get drunk, that is his
business but ,he should keep it strictly his
business and not make it other people's busi-
ness by appearing at public gatherings and
annoying those around him; and whether he
realizes it or not, a drunk is practically always
annoying. We have nothing against those who
want to take a drink or two before they come
to the game or even after they get to the game
if they feel they must take a drink. That is
strictly their business. But, they can temper
their thirst until they leave the gathering and
afford peace of mind to their neighbors in the

they take this friendly suggestion and try to

When Charles E. Wilson gave up his $600,-

to become Secretary of Defense, that great cor-

How does a boy start at the bottom and land

formula: "Do it the hard way! Think ahead of
your job. Then nothing in the world can keep
the job ahead from reaching out for you. Do it
better than it need be done. Next time doing
it well will be child's play. Let no one or any-

Let nothing deny you this rich chance to gain

Do it better than anyone else can do it. I know

I was on a peddle run the

Immokalee. I had to make
some truck detours over roads
that I'm ashamed to admit

my wife, Mary, when I got
home, "that the money Flor-

in Florida during 1952 totaled
nearly $26,000,000. The truck-

$7,000,000 just for registration
fees and license tags. Yet of
that nearly $26,000,000, only
about $405,000 was earmarked
for public roads."

Bean plants shown are mulched and lettuce has been cultivated. Both

Miulch vs. Hoe Frequent
Topic of Garden Debates
Old-time gardeners taught that
the deeper the soil was stirred in
cultivation, the better it was for
the plants. Many moderns take
exactly the opposite view and say
that any stirring of the .soil is
harmful to near-by growing
It is difficult to persuade an
experienced gardener that -his
plants are not benefitted by stir-
ring the soil surface, however;
and even extremists concede that
it kills weeds. It also breaks the
crust on the soil surface, and al-
lows both air and water to enter.
But there is no need to stir the
soil deeper than an inch for
The muscular effort required
to cultivate to this depth is ino
greater than sweeping the floor;
and even less if the hoe blade is
kept sharp and used as a cutting
instrument to shave the soil sur-
As soon as your seeds have
sprouted, s9 you know where they
are, begin regular shallow culti-
vation, especially after every
rain: and no weed will grow in
your garden. Easy strokes of the
hoe will turn up the white sprouts
of weed seed before they have
reached the surface. Only in the
rows between the seedlings will
you have to pull up weeds; and
this is-usually done when the
roaws are thinned out.
SAs your plants grow, their roots

lest more harm than good result.
After plants have passed the
seedling stage, and thinning out
is completed, cultivation can oe
avoided by covering the soil with
a mulch. Many materials have
been used for this cover, includ-
ing boards, stones, asphalted pa-
per, newspaper, lawn clippings,
straw, leaves, ground-up corn-
cobs and sawdust. -
One of the best of these mate-
rials is lawn clippings, if they
are dried first in the sun. To pre-
vent them heating, they should
be spread out thinly, or tossed
frequently with a pitch fork to
air and dry them. A thin layer
of dry clippings should be worked
into the soil, after it has been
thoroughly watered. Dry clip-
pings can be piled on this first
layer to a depth of several inches.
Tomato plants especially will
benefit from a mulch.
Grass keeps the surface of the
soil in -excellent condition to ad-
mit both water and air, both of
which are necessary to plant
roots. A grass mulch, preferably
of an annual grass which will die
in the winter, and which does not
spread or seed objectionably, can
be used to advantage in a rose
garden, or between tall growing

Episcopalians To Add
New Feature To Services
Beginning Sunday night, May 3,
a new feature will be added to the
regular evening service of St.
James' Episcopal Church in re-
sponse to the interest shown by
the many questions put to the Rec-
tor, the Rev. Harry B. Douglas, Jr.,
concerning the faith and practice of
the Episcopal Church. Hereafter,
there will be a sermon with eve-
ni* prayer, which will be prepare
ed especially to answer these ques-
tiohs. This type of sermon is being
planned for the evening service be-
cause the wide variety of questions
,necessitates a time separate from
the regular morning services.
The question for the sermon at
the service this Sunday, May 3, at
7:30 p.m. will be "Is the Episcopal
Church Catholic or Protestant?"
