from' Smith nd Gillespie Engin-
eers Of JacksOnville. According to
Mayor Belin, pumping operations

of March in 4.
In a teleph ne interview with

slated that the ci council had been

working with bond attorneys, the
State Board of Health, sanitation
engineers and water suppliers al-
most every day for the last three
months in order to expedite the
much needed water system. The
mayor said the council had work-
ed out a very satisfactory agree-
ment with a local water supplier
and he believes after the final sur-
vey has been placed before him,
the actual cost of purchasing wa-
ter from the new supplier will be
less than pumping and piping'costs

of its bond obligations, as well as
all operating expenses, it is believ-
ed according to the mayor, that no
difficulty will be encountered in
selling the revenue certificates at
a reasonable rate of interest. When
asked about the water supplier who
was to sell the city water at such
low cost, Belin stated that the sur-
vey would show the local Paper
Company's new water supply sys-
tem was more favorable than any
other supply since it would require
less treatment and filtering..Pre-
linrn'ary tests show that th Pa-
per Company's water is very soft-
with color and turbidity within the
State Board of Health's required
Standards. It is believed that very
little decoloring will be required.
The Paper Company has recog-
nized the need of bezcer water for
this city for a long time and its
offer to supply water :o the city
from its new system is welcomed
by local consumers.
The mayor went on to say that
for years the .council has known
that underground strata offer only
hard, sulphur water whicn; along
with other minerals, is almost im-
possible to treat and, soften. It has
cost the city a great deal to treat
what water the city has now avail-
able. Even after the best of treat-
ment the water from underground
lacks in color and softness.
The mayor readily admit-ed the
present water is deplorable. He
said the city had grown so rapidly
within the last two years that the
drain on the present system is too
great to supply the need required
in this expanding community. He
went on to say that he had been
discussing the new system with lo-
cal housewives, and young mothers
"Do you know, the mayor beam-
ed, all of them are tickled to death.

SPEAK YOUR MIND
How? Simply by voting Tuesday in the
municipal election. This is a serious election,
although too many people consider municipal
elections as small time and unworthy of atten-
tion and not worth the time consumed by going
to the polls to vote. A municipal election is
small in scale as compared with a National or
State election, but in a way, far more important
to you in this community.
We don't have to tell you of the duty of
each citizen to vote and of the privilege the ci-
tizens of this nation have in the power to se-
lect their own public officials. But we do wish

Last Thursday at Rotary Club we
heard a speech by a student just
returned from Chile where he ,had
been attending a university that
made our blood boil. This student
had been in Chile for about a year
and came back kitlli a It!Li'e inti:
.mate picture of trar country. We
can't however, abide with some of'
his ideas concerning trade relations
between our country *and Chile.
We will not go -so far to say that
the ideas were strictly his own as
they are the feeling of the Chilean
Anyway, according to this speech
Chile is suffering from a depression
because the United States doesn't
buy copper from Chile, who pro-
duces a good amount of the min-
eral. The reason the United States
doesn't buy copper from Chile is
because the United States can pro-
duce a better grade of copper from
its own mines cheaper than Chile
can produce the copper before the
material is shipped to the United
States. Chile claims slie cannot
produce copper for less.than 35c a
pound. So what they want the Unit-
ed States, to do is to buy some
copper from them at their price
not taking into consideration the
fact whether the United States
needs the copper or not arid despite
the fact that the United States
can produce better copper cheaper.
What bargain-minded American
'would pay -a higher price for any-
'thing? Our economy is based on
,fast, cheap production.
Here we see a nation practically

tJ.il"-t I price, .set b. -them
The way we look at it, if Chile
wants 'to sell us copper they should
do as the United States did-de-
velop .a means of producing it
cheaper. If the Chileans 'haven't
the brains to figure this out, we
have no doubt but what they could
hire someone from the United
States to show them how.
We wonder what the situation
would be if the shoe were on the
other foot. Do you suppose .Chile,
or any other nation for that mat-
ter, would buy copper or anything
else from the United States if they
could produce it themselves cheap-
er? Not on your life. They would
consider themselves fools if they
did. And they would be. So will we
be if we carry 'off a scheme like
that. We probably are anyhow for
some of the schemes like this that

we or some other means could make you the
people BELIEVE these statements. Some peo-
ple will say, "Why we believe it. because the
Constitution says so". But actions by the
American voter gives a picture of not caring or
just not trying to choose the best officials to car-
ry on a public job.
These facts are shown by the number of
voters who turn out to cast their ballots percen-
tage-wise to the numbers of voters who are re-
gistered and never darken the poll doors. Also
take into consideration the number of citizens
registered to vote in comparison With popula-
tiqn. There are just over 900 registered voters
in the City of Port St. Joe. There are around
'775 water meters. This would make at least
1500 adults in the City of Port St. Joe. ALL OF
THESE ADULTS ARE ELIGIBLE 1TO VOTE
but only slightly over half of them are even re-
gistered and about half of those registered usu-
ally turn out to vote. This makes up a repre-
sentation of about one-fourth of the citizens of
Port St. Joe deciding who should run the City
and spend the tax dollars.
Mr., Miss or Mrs., it is your duty and your
job to see that a government that is the choice of
the majority of the citizens of Port St. Joe to
run the city. If you don't do it, don't gripe if
your candidate didn't win.
This editorial is merely to urge you to .get
out and vote for the candidates you think would
run the City best. Nobody can do it but YOU.

Richards is a hard runner and plen-

out-shine anyone in the backfield,

he runs now it's in good shape.

their positions on the team are per-

as hard as they should. One of the
bad factors concerning football in

are plenty of boys who could make
good football players but either
they don't like the game or their the City Pier, which is, in poor con-

would really have to hustle in or-
der to hold their positions. But we'll
have ,to admit that Chaig has done
a fine job in 'the past, as far as pro-
ducing a team goes. He takes his
handful of players up to a larger
school with a niice football field,
which we haven't got, and about 80
boys and at least three paid coaches
to oppose him, and if he doesn't win
'the opponents know they've been
in a tough football game.
Speaking of football fields. we
have a nice one in the making-
needing only the lights td be com..
It's really discouraging to the
playerS, as well as the coach, to
have to ,play season after season
on a makeshift field whice almost
every other school Ithis size has
fields to be proud of. If we had a
few more football enthusiasts like
Dave Maddox, we would have a
fieldfield to be proud of. Maddox
has worked dilligently for the team'
in all respects, especially in con-
nection with the new field. We be-
lieve we could, have lights on the
field before this season is over if
some group would push the matter.

Put Early Fal Vegetables on Daily
BY DOROTHY MADDOX-
VITAMIN-PACKED, appetite-tempting, fresh early fall vegetables
are in the market now. Enjoy them! Serve them daily in your
family menus-but be sure to cook them right in order to get every
cent's worth of value.
Fresh Cauliflower With Buttered Crumbs
Fresh cauliflower should be creamy white with tightly packed
flowers. To cook, trim off outer leaves, leaving the tender inside
leaves attached to the head.
Invert the head in a pan of salt water and let stand 5 to 10
minutes. Drain. Place, head down, in. boiling salted water. Cook,
uncovered, about 10 minutes.
Turn head right-side-up and continue cooking until stem end is
tender, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Drain and serve immediately,
topped with buttered crumbs, which can be made by ,melting 3
tablespoons butter, adding % cup fine dry bread crumbs, then
stirring over low heat until lightly browned.
When buying fresh broccoli, look for stalks that are firm and
green. The heads sl yld have tight buds and be a rich green or
slightly purplish greenlcolor.
Broccoli should be washed thoroughly under running water or
by plunging the heads up and down in cold water. Trim off the
tough stalk ends and drop into rapidly boiling salted water.
Cook just until stalks are fork tender, but still firm-12 to 15
minutes. Some people like to stand .the stalks, blossom end up, in
the water and cook about 8 to 10 minutes.
Lay the blossoms down in the water and continue cooking until
tender. This is because the stalks take longer to cook than the
blossoms. Serve with butter.
When buying fresh carrots remember that the deeper the orange
color, the more vitamin A they contain. Select carrots that are
firm. crisp-textured and smooth-skinned.
Yw', 2.-.u oun: carrots cooked whole are delicious. Wash and drop

Vitamin-packed, early fall vegetables make this tempting, fresh
into rapidly boiling salted water. Cook tightly covered, just until
tender. This will be 15 to 20 minutes for young ones and 20 to 30
minutes for older carrots.
Slip off skins under running water if desired. Serve topped with
melted butter and a good sprinkle of minced fresh parsley. For
sliced carrots, wash and scrape them thinly. Slice and drop into
small amount of rapidly boiling salted water and cook, covered,
just until tender-6 to 10 minutes.
Drain and serve with melted butter or add a little light cream
and toss gently just to coat each slice. Save the water the carrots

Urban Mileage Limits
To Be Changed
A gradual reduction of speed a
reasonable distance from smaller
villages and towns of Florida, in-
stead of the sudden reduce speed
to 25 miles an hour signs some dis-
tance out on the highway is now
in practice on at least half of all
highways in the state.
The State Road Department
adopted the method some months
'ago, and will continue to erect the
signs gradually until they will be
in use throughoutt Florida.
The new system reduces speed
on a graduated system from he
lawful' limit to 45 miles per hour,
then to 35 and down to 25 by the
time he reaches the city limits, or
gets just inside the village or town.
Previously the only signs which
reduced speed were erected some
distance from town and motorists
generally disapproved of the me-
thod which they contended gener-
ally impede dthe flow of traffic.
The present practice has met
with motorist approval, the state
highway patrol says, and tends to
--- 'facilitate the movement of traffic
'. in the rural areas by lowering the
lawful speed only in areas of lim-
