June is by custom, considered
the month of wedding. The young
people of Port St. Joe have cer-
tainly been living up to that old
tradition for the past few weeks.
Seems'like we've had a wedding to
write up each week for the past
month. You know this marirage is
a serious business. I remember
when the sweet wife arid myself
were married. It didn't seem pos-
sible to get along on my salary
then, but we made out. And gra-
dually the salary increased and
still wp are making out. We ima-
gine every couple starts off a life
together with a "hard row to hoe",
unless of course they are born
with the proverbial "silver spoon"
in their mouth. But you know, ev-
ery one of these couples who are
-worth their salt make a go of it
financially. It seems a bit calloused
to think of finances at a time when
a couple is getting happily mar-
ried, but after all, it takes money
to live, whether we want it that
way or not.
We see where the English peo-
ple are receiving a substantial cut
in income taxes. Looks like if a
country as bankrupt as England
could give a cut in taxes, the good
old rich United States could do
likewise for her subjects.
But we don't reckon we can take
a cut in taxes and expect the bet-
ter part of the w<.-ld to live off of
owr fincucing. )J .
We have bad newd for the Ma-
yor of Buckhorn, that thrivifig com-
munity in the Eastern tip of the
county. Of course you all know
that ex-editor Bill Smith was elect-
ed by an overwhelming majority
as Mayor of this community. At
the time of the election, the popu-
lation of Buckhorn was the sum
total of two inhabitants, ex-editor
Bill and his-wife, Miss Myrtice.
We don't know officially if ex-edi-
tor Bill had any opposition in his
campaign or not. We do know
that he received the vote of every
inhabitant of his fair city. The ex-
editor dabbled in politics here in
Port St. Joe once back around 1940
when he ran for city council, but
failed 'to get the overwhelming ma-
jority he recieved in his race for
Mayor. Anyhow, back to the bad
news. THERE IS ANOTHER
BUCKHORN, FLORIDA! It is lo-
cated in Wakulla County some-
where between Sopchoppy and
Crawfordville. Now we ask you,
what can the mayor of Gulf Coun-
ty's Buckhorn do about this. Sup-
-pose both Buckhorn's acquired a
post office. Wouldn't that be a
problem for the mail boys?
The Legislature has now "dis-
convened" so the Mayor can get
no -help there for another two
years. Of course Gulf Qounty'is
Buckhorn couldn't change its name.
Maybe Wakulla County's Buckhorn
also likes its name. What a deli-
ma. We wouldn't be in the shoes
of either of the Mayors of these
respective communities for any-.
thing. This is indeed a ticklish
P. S., Wakulla's Buckhorn is
just a shade larger than Gulf
'County's Buckhorn. According to
the source, there are approximate-
ly four families living there.
We were perusing some copy
sent us by the Florida News Service
the o'iher day and ran across an
article that could oply have taken
,place in -FlorlH.4. We 'will repro-

Success with Inconel
Angry owners of a particular com-
mercial refrigerator blamed the
manufacturer for failure of the units
and'subsequent food spoilage. A hur-
ried investigation revealed failure
of the diaphragm in the temperature
control. The diaphragm material,
weakened by constant compressor
pulsations, stiffened and failed un-
der temperature changes. The prob-
lem was resolved by substituting
Inconel, a nickel-chromium-iron al-
loy, strip for the diaphragm.

TRADE NOT AID?
The State Department has "confirmed and
elaborated on" the testimony revealed by Sen-
ator McCarthy's subcommittee charging that
two British-owned ships carried Red Chinese
troops during the Korean War./ A letter to the
sub-committee, signed by Assistant Secretary
of State Thurston B. Morton, identified the ves-
sels as the Miiramar and the Perico, both of
which were under Panamanian registry at the
time of the alleged offense.
The letter, revealed by Senator Karl Mundt,
acting chairman, stated that information in the
Department indicated that the Perico was reg-
istered under, the Panamanian flag by Wallem
& Company on December 10, 1949, and that
"There is no indication that the vessel changed
hands until it was sold for scrap in Hongkong in
1952. "Available information" showed that the
Miramar was bought by Wheelock, Marden and
Co., Ltd., from Wallem in early 1950, and "sub-
sequent to June 1952 came into the hands of the
A general denial by Sir Roger Makins, Bri-
tish ambassador, was forthcoming almost im-
mediately. In a luncheon speech, Sir Roger
said: "No British ship, that is to say no ship un-
der the British flag and subject to British law,
has done any such thing."
At the time of the alleged services to'the
enemy, he said, "these two ships appear to have
been under the control of the Chinese Commun-

Americans, along with the British also re-
ceived a thrill out of the recent coronation of
Queen Elizabeth. Did toe ever have a queen?
If you asked that question of most of your
friends you probably would get a queer look in
return and some such answer as, "Of course not,
what's the catch?" Well, we did have a queen,
several of them in fact, and kings, too. Most
people think of American history as starting
with the Revolution or with the inauguration of
our first president'in 1789. We had a lot of
history before than. We've had presidents for
164 years; but for 169 years-from 1607 to 1776
-the rulers of England were our rulers, so we,
too, had kings and queens. Our king and queen

SO BEAUTFUL! SO POWERFUL!
GENERAL MOTORS LOWEST PRICED EIGHT
SO ROOMY! SO LOWIN 'PRICE!
Judge Pontiac purely from the standpoint of quality and it's
hard to believe that it is actually a low-priced car. Certainly it's as
distinctively styled as any car on the road-and its beauty carries
through into its luxurious, roomy Body by Fisher. Performance-
wise, Pontiac is second to none, with power to spare that whisks
you through city traffic or cruises with remarkable economy. And
Pontiac is a big car, with a long, 122-inch wheelbase.
But Pontiac's outstanding feature is its price-a price so low that
if you can afford any new car you can afford a Pontiac. Come in and
get the facts that prove that dollar for dollar you can't beat a Pontiac!

Tips To Parents
Here's a helpful tip to parents of
children who will be entering
school for the first time this Fall:
Get your child's birth certificate
now and 'avoid the risk of an exas-
perating delay if you should wait
until school opens.
That's the word today from the
Florida State Board of Health Bu-
reau of Vital Statistics in Jack-
"Every year shortly before school'
opens",, says Bureau Director Ev-
erett Williams, "we become swamp-
ed with requests for birth certifi-
cates for children who will be en-
tering school for the first time.
"Since a birth certificate is re-
quired to prove that a child is old
enough to enter school, the docu-
ment is necessary for proper regis-
tration of the child in school for
the first time.
"Consequently, thousands of re-
quests pour into the vital statis-
tics bureau offices in Jacksonville,
requesting copies of birth certifi-
cates. This deluge of mail' throws
us behind With our work as much
as -three or four weeks. Additional
delay results if no birth certificate
is on file. Then it can take con-
siderably longer in most cases to
arrange for a delayed birth certi-
ficate to be properly filled out,
filed, and a copy transmitted to
Williams also pointed out that
birth certificates are necessary for
proof of age to engage in high

"Publicity minded Florida civic
leaders seldom miss an opportun-
ity to promote their area or the
state as a whole. When Mayor
Haydon Burns received a form let-
ter from the town of Brilliant, Ohio
asking for the donation of $1 to-
ward providing the community
(population 2,066) with a swim-
ming pool, the alert Mayor sent a
check for $5 explaining that when
he-thought of the advantages the
people of Jacksonville enjoyed
with fine beach and pool facilities,
plus ocean breezes and Florida
sunshine, he was happy to send
five times what they asked.
"Upon hearing of the plight of
Brilliant, Ohio and the action of
Mayor Burns, Tod Swalm, secre-
tary of the Sarasota County Cham-
ber of Commerce, went the Mayor
one better. He promptly wrote the
folks in Brilliant sending a check
for $10 to apply on the pool fund,
explaining that while Jacksonville
was very fortunate as compared to
Brilliant, Sarasota was so far
ahead in this respect that he felt
obliged to double the Mayor's con-
tribution. Any day now we will
probably hear that Greater Miami
is shipping a complete modern
swimming pool plus several car-
loads of Florida sand. That is
what 'can happen when Brilliant
people appeal to brilliant people."
