JUST A LITTLE REMINDER
Already purse strings are being untied and
donations are beginning to come in toward the
Summer Youth Recreation Center being formed
here for the children of Port St. Joe and sur-
rounding trade areas. The fund now totals
approximately $450 with many promises of cash
The Recreation Council is making vast
plans to carry on the recreation program through
the years to come and are aiming their financial
sights and plans along this line. We think this
shows excellent judgment to take an interest in
the as yet, unforseeable, future. A project such
as this needs a great amount of backing and
planning to make it work and it would be fool-
ish to just make plans and preparations for this
year alone when there are so many other chil-
dren coming on who need to be thought of as
well as the present generation. -
/' The Council is making plans to make the
recreation program partially self supporting af-
ter just a few years, but until that time, you and
1 will have to foot the bill and there is no way
out. If something such as this is worth having
it is worth paying for. We are firmly convinced
it is worth having.
To make matters worse, the whole solicita-
tion program is going to be carried out, through
necessity during the next three and a half weeks
in order to start the program directly after the
closing of school. So when you are called on
to give to this cause or to work for the fulfill-
ment of plans made by the council, don't hesi-
tate for a, moment, since there is only a short
time to do this much needed work in.
The Gulf County Schools carry on a sum-
mer recreation program for the children of our
town, but their budget is such that only one per-
son can be hired and the job is just too great for
one man. Also, their budget is limited as to the
amount of money that can be spent for play
equipment and they are also regulated as to
what their money can be spent for. The pur-
pose of the Port St. Joe Recreation Council is
to augment these funds and carry on this work
for our children on a much wider scale.
So remember, if you are called on for fi-
nancial or physical help for this project, step
forward eagerly and do your best. That is all
any of us can do.
Somerset Maugham said: "I forget who it
was that recommended men for their soul's good
to do each day two things they disliked it
is a precept that I have followed scrupulously;
for every day I have got up and have gone to
how hot and stuffy it was Satur-
day afternoon. We were up the
street that evening seeking out a
few inches of advertising when we
happened to run into Dave Mad-
dox and mentioned the ?*!;xNB-
heat. Dave said, "Come on with
me this afternoon and I'll guaran-
tee you'll cool off." We went. Dave's
method is to take a ship out and
get out on that bay in his pilot
boat. Believe me, it cools you off.
In over ten years of living right
here on the Gulf, that was our
first triB out In a boat of any. kind.
We want to say here and now,
"That is the life for us". That boat
just rolled gently and practically
lulled you to sleep and the fresh
cool breeze whipped through the
pilot house and even made ME
feel like doing something. We even
caught a fish at one of the buoys
out at the mouth of the channel.
It wasn't much of a fish, but it
was definitely a fish. We don't
want Dave's job however. He has
to jump from a rope ladder hung
over the side of the ship he is guid-
ing out, to the deck of the pilot
boat with both of the boats under
way. And bobbing like a cork, on
that Gulf, We'll stick to tickling
the keys of this brainchild of Mr.
JMerganthaler's. Whenever we feel
a case of heat prostation coming
on, though, we will look up Dave.
We received a reservation credit
of $100 from a big hotel in West
Palm Beach the other day. All we
have to do is run them $200 worth
of advertising free. And then how
would we ever find time to use up.
$100 worth of reservation?

THE LOW DOWN
---- from ---
The "era of making simple prob-
lems complicated" is up for sur-
vey today, so I haul out my mic-
roscope for a look. The "Teen-age
problem"--I would say looms up
there in the foremost ranks-put
there by the hundreds of social
science graduates who have now
muddled up the waters to such an
extent that we are not too sure but
what we do have something like
a "problem" on our hands.
They are barking up the wrong
tree-is my deduction. The prob-
lem is not so much-a youth prob-
lem as a "mama and' papa prob-
lem". Anybody old enough to be
a mama and a papa should learn
by that time that there is no sub-
stitute for discipline. Those who
don't know same, need not be sur-
prised if the police sergeant calls
up at 4 a.m. and tells 'emr their
off-shoot has just been brought in
for throwing beer bottles from a
racing hot rod. What if the mama
and papa are not yet home their
ownself, says Henry, then what?
You' have stumbled onto the an-
swer, I says. When they do get
home-go get 'em-pop 'em in the
cooler 'with their off-shoot-put
all names in next morning papers.
Simple as pie-nothing compli-
cated-as simple even as why white
horses eat more than black horses.
Is that because there could be
more white horses than black, says
Henry. Good for you, I says, you
are pretty sharp today.

Mr. Petty, would you please run
your de-mosquitoizer down my back
alley? Several nights ago we were
trying to get a little shut-eye when
we felt a sharp pirg in a tender
spot on our posterior which caused
us to take a mighty swat in that
particular direction, which scared
up a mosquito. Every few minutes
this rascal would take a buzz by
our ear and drop a sting here and
there just to let us know he is
still around. For the past few nights
old mosquito has made his prns-
ence known just to agravate our
usual calm manner. We've tried
everything from slapping to telling
that old mosquito just what we
think of his actions and still he
hangs around. How about giving
him a shot of the mosquito's version
of kickapoo joy juice Mr. Petty?
This new recreation council is
moving fast. They have already
named all their officers and start-.
ed the ball. One representative of
the organization has even contact-
ed two prospects to operate the
program during the summer
months. Then to make their pro-
gram doubly effective, they are
cooperating and tying-in with the
recreation program offered by the
school for the summer months. A
little bit of the old "work toge-
ther" spirit can get wonders done.

tion is showing is their plans for

An appeal for additional sup-
port for the 19.5,3 Cancer Crusade
was made last Thursday by Carl
V. Cesery, American Cancer So-
ciety Campaign Chairman for Flor-
ida, who said the fund raising
drive was lagging behind schedule.
So far $165,000 has been receiv-
ed toward a goal of $250,600. -'tOW-
over this report covers .receipts

"t was hoped that the drive
would be concluded on April 30 but
this has been impossible. FPrther-
more it appears that many people
who intend to give have delayed
in doing so. We are therefore con-
tinuing the drive during the month
"We are convinced that ihe
small returns to date are'due to
delay rather than a disinclination
to help fight cancer" he continued.
"It may be impossible for our vo-
lunteer solicitors to reach every-
one in the state. But that should
not deter anyone from giving to
save the lives of more than 4000
Floridians and 220,000 Americans
who die every year from Cancer.

CERTAINLY, the Hudson Hornet is a lovely car to
look at-gorgeous inside and out. And its beauty
is more than skin deep.
This rugged performer holds the stock-car champion-
ship in all three major racing associations-and a
touch of your toe to the gas pedal will tell you why!
The Hornet's dazzling performance comes from
Hudson's sturdy, long-lasting, high-compression en-
gine; and from the fact that it has the lowest center
of gravity among American cars-because of exclusive
"step-down" design. Why don't you visit us and try,

TO THE EDITOR
Just a quick note, to say that my
son Henry and I plan to leave for
Rhode Island a week from Satur-
day. Wonder if anyone around these
parts would like to come along?
You know, I hate to leave here
in so many ways! The folks have
been so kind to us, at every turn;
like the youngsters, too. The idea
of taking college refresher cour-
ses plus certain requisite courses
which Tallahassee demands-is
just not practical or feasible for
me to consider, this summer. An-
other drawback. However, I surely
do expect that sometime or other,
we'll come .sailing in on you, and
see if you still remember us!
We'll be at the'Rocky Hill Coun-
try Day School Summer Camp, at
East Greenwich, Rhode Island, from
aroundJune 6 to the latter half of
August. It is situated on'-Narra-
gahsette Bay (near Newport and
Narragansette Pier and Point Ju-
dith) and the boys have swimming,
boating, etc. As a member of the
staff, I'll have a room in the Fa-
culty House. We anticipate a nice

pioneer fashion, here, in physical
education at the Elementary School

eryone has been so kind. I believe
I helped the youngsters in develop-
ing a sense of response to one di-
rector (in large groups); many
have better co-ordination, and have
learned all sorts of new games,
stunts, singing-games, etc. It built
up school pride to have a nice pa-
geant where all participated, and
even the exchange of games in our
