How About That!

We're just.working ourself out
of a job!
This month marked the anni-
versary of Costin's Department
Store, and manager G. F. Law-
rence had planned to insert two
full page ads in The Star herald-
ing the event with a super duper
sale. One of these pages he ran
last week and intended to fol-
low up with another this week.
However, his results were S
good that he sold out of his sale
items and just didn't have enough
of anything left to advertise for
this week.
How do you like that! The ad-
vertising is so good that it just
sells the merchandise before we
can get another crack at adver-
tising the merchandise,

GET AT THE 'ROOT" OF THE THING
We're defending the County Commission-
ers this week in one phase of their former pro-
posed budget. The part we are referring to is
the "Pest Control" fund in the budget. In the'
first draft of the proposed budget the Commis-
sioners allocated $10,000.00 for this purpose.
This seemed a little high a the State Legisla-
ture passed a bill in their last session to allow
any county in the state an equal amount of
money from the state to match any money put
up by a county for "pest control". The phases
of work to be carried out in this pest control
campaign were mapped out and to most every-
one in the county (us included) this meant
merely spraying This is all that had ever been
done in the past. We were in contact with F.
E. Trammell of the County Health Department
about the advisability of allowing this much
money for "pest control". Trammell informed
us that the "pest control" this year would be far
more than just spraying. The fund was to pro-
.vide means of ,destroying insects by destroying
their breeding places.
You will probably think, "Why that's silly,


ETAOIN 'SHRDLU
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY

So the Korean War is finally,
over. We have noticed that-prac-
tically every writer is saying "The
first war we 'ever lost". How can
they say things like thatQ Of
course we didn't, win the war since
we didn't gain-our objective, which
was to push the Communists from
'Iorean soil, but on the other hand,
the Communists didn't,win either,
since their objective was to push
the free men from Korean soil. At
one time the Comunists had the
Allies backed up into a small pock-
et -of 'land, and -at another time the
Allies had the Communists backed,
up into a small pocket of land.
You might call' the whole war a
draw between the two forces since
they both wdnnd up at about the
same spot they started from and
each side saw about the same
amount of the enemies' territory.

We are glad to see an eyesore
and a firetranp on Reid Avenue be-
ing .torn down. The building Was
built of its particular materials of
necessity during the war years, but
nevertheless it detracted from the
row 'of nice-looking business hou-
ses on Reid Avenue. We under-
stand that C. W. Long is going to
erect A building on the site to
house his Western Auto Associate
Store.

oThis is one of those little "whoda
thought it" items. The other day
we were in the Firestone Store
chewing -the fat with Mr. Eells
about all the men (they're draft
age so we'll say men instead of
'boys) from Gulf County in the
service. Mr. Eells who is head of
the draft board drew out some re-
cords -to show us a few statistics.
According to the records nearly
twice the number of men drafted
from this city have voluntarially


we have a clean town here". Certainly we do
have, but it is not as clean as it could be and a
sanitation hazard is caused by unthinking citi-
zens. But the problem is not centered so much
in the City of Port St. Joe as it is with outlying
districts and places where citizens dump trash
to get it away from town.
A ride just around the vicinity of Port St
Joe will reveal to you back yards littered with
trash and mound after mound of old tin cans
and bottles, perfect breeding places for flies
and mosquitoes. Certainly most of the mosqui-
toes in this vicinity are bred' in the swamps and
a portion of the flies are too, but a greater per-
centage than you would think are bred in back
yards throughout the county.
The cities in the county just don't have the
money to combat these pests in our particular
geographic location with its multitude of na-
tural breeding places nor can they effectively
care for the growing city populations.
It is common knowledge that the housefly
and mosquito carry most of our common di-
seases in this part of the country.
The program to be carried out by the State
and County would eradicate the breeding, places
of these pests and carty on a long range program
of fighting the breeding of these pests in the
swamps of the county as well as in various set-
tlements throughout the county'which have no
garbage collection service.
So far as we know, this is the first attempt
of this kind to be made but the attempt is not
coming a bit too soon.
We congratulate the Commissioners for tak-
ing this step to get at the "root" of the trouble
we have with pests andinsects. They are start-
ing at the right spot to, make our county and
state a healthful place in which to live. A tour
through the back streets in our community and
outlying districts of our town will convince you
of the need of this project. Multiply the places
of rubble that could support the growth of flies
and mosquitoes by the hundreds of places in
weeds and brush piles that cannot be seen and
you will see the need for this project.

We found out thd .rie av thatlr.
Chief of Police "'Buck" Grinin atnd

for a few details but could get

I OR'S


best


buy


"WORTH MORE" IS THE ANSWER... IT COSTS SO LITTLE TO BUY
S.. SO LITTLE TO RUN ,.. AND HAS SUCH HIGH RESALE VALUE!


"Best buy" where you ride! Ford's foam-
rubber cushioned seats, front and
rear, are sofa-wide and sofa:soft;
Interior fabrics; color-keyed to
Ford's smart outside colors, would
be a credit to any car at any price.


"Best buy" where you drivel Ford's sus-
pended pedals operate more easily
S. eliminate dusty, drafty floor
holes. And Ford drivers have a
choice of Fordomatic Drive, Over-
drive or Conventional transmission.







"Best buy" at the gas pumps! When you
need to "fill 'er up", you do it the
modern Ford way with Center-Fill
Fueling. And Ford's Automatic
Power Pilot gives you power to
spare on a lean diet of regular gas.


"Best buy" on the road! The rougher
the road the better your Ford likes
it because Ford's new "ride" cuts
front end road shock alone up to
80% ... babies you over the bumps
. and cuts sidesway on turns.


The best buy in an automobile usually means the
amount of pleasure and satisfaction the owner gets
from his original investment, plus low day-to-day
running costs, plus the amount of value he recovers
when he sells his car.
What is it that makes Ford your best buy? Is it
the fine styling and craftsmanship of its Crestmark
Body.. or its new "rde" with curve-hugging and
bump-leveling qualities never before known in
low-priced cars? Or is it Ford's famous V-8 or








"Best buy" ia engine power! Only Ford in its field offers you a
choice of V-8 or Six. Ford has built more V-8's-over
13,000,000-than all other makers combined. And Ford's
Six--the most, modern in the industry-with Overdrivei'
won the Mobilgas Economy Run Grand Sweepstakes!


WORTH
WORTH


Mileage Maker Six? -Maybe it's the easy way the
car handles with Fordomatic Drive, or Ford's
Master-Guide power steering! Perhaps it's Ford's
suspended pedals, or Center-Fill Fueling or Full-
Circle Visibility!
Actually, it's not just any one or two of these
fine things that make Ford your best buy. It's all of
Ford's "Worth More" features combined .
features which make Ford worth more when you
buy it 'and worth more when you sell it!



1-_-



"Best buy" in power steering! Ford's Master-Guide (available
on all V-8 models) supplies hydraulic "muscles"-auto-
matically whenever you need them-to do the work of
steering for you. All you do is guide the car. Makes all
driving easier, and safer. And working's so easy! '

TOO LATE
TO CLASSIFY
BY RUSSELL KAY


While moose are not included
among the wildlife of Florida, the
State does not have a 'Moosehaven'
and indications are, the peninsula
will be overun with Moose next
month.
The Miami Convention Bureau,
supported by Governor Dan Mc-
Carty and other Floriba members
of the Loyal Order of Moose, con-
ducted a successful Moose-hunting
enpe'ition that resulted in bringing
the 65th annual convention of the
Loyal Order of the Moose to Florida
*this summer. Convention dates are
August 15 to 21.
One of the largest fraternal or-
,ganization. in existence, the Loyal
Order of Moose has 1,800 lodges on
the continent of North America and
a membership of over a million.
While no one knows, of course,
how many of these thousands of
members will journey to Florida for
the convention, Convention Chair-
man George S. Okell of Miami an-
ticipates one of the largest gather-
ings in the history of the organiz-
ation.
It is fitting that Florida should
'mntertain 'the Loyal Order of Moose,
for the organization selected this
,state 1 years ago as the ideal lo-
-cation for its home for the aged
members, and Moosehaven was
established at Orange Park, 18 mile
South of Jacksonville. Since that
time approximately three and a
half million dollars have gone into
the development, and maintenance
today runs about one hundred
thousand dollars a year.
Moosehaven differs radically from
many other private or public homes
for the aged. Husband and Wife are
not separated no Moose member
for example, who has a wife, can
alone enjoy its benefits; his wife
must go with him and live with
him.
The establishment bears no like-
ness to any poorhouse or poor farm
the civilized world over. It is vari-
ously called 'The City of Opportun-
ity' or 'The City of Contentment.'
Each man and woman at Moose-
haven is given opportunity in the
task for which he or she is best
fitted by training or experience.
Each receives in addition to life's
,necessities such as food and shelter
nmdical care and recreation re-
matneration for services rendered.
Because of the health-giving
properties of the Florida sun, the
excellence of care provided, and
freedom from worry, the life span
of the average citizen has been
'extended a decade.
Conventioners will first assemble
at Moosehaven where most. of then
will see for the first time just how
the dependent aged of the Order
-are cared for. The entire day of
August 15 will be spent there.
The convention itself will open
in Miami Aug. 16 and continue thru
Aug. 21. An elaborate -program of
business and entertainment has
been arranged by George Okell and
his hard working. committee.
Florida attraction folks are dust-
ing off their Moose calls and invit-
ing the thousands who will come by
or to .'See Silver Springs' ,- 'Stop
at Marineland' or 'Visit Beautiful
Cypress Gardens.'
Conventions today are big busi-
ness. Florida is fortunate in hav-
ing a city like Miami that can of-
fer facilities for such large groups
as the Moose, Elks, American Le-
gion and other national organiza-
tions with such large memberships
that only a few cities in the nation
can care for them. It is also for-
tunate that this city is located so
that visitors must travel most of
the state 'to reach it: Conventioners
leave a trail of dollars behind
them wherever they go. Treat them
with friendliness and courtesy and
they will return again and again.
