FOOD FOR THOUGHT
We are indebted to "Little Dave" Gaskin
for the subject concerned in this week's editor-
ial. We, though a staunch Baptist that we are,
attended the Methodist Men's Club meeting
Tuesday night and heard "Little Dave" talk on
a subject that we believe too few of the citizens
of our city and county have thought at any length
upon. That subejct is "County unity and bro-
therhood". The towns of our county are too far
apart as far as neighborliness and community
friendship are concerned. The towns in the coun-
ty are miles apart. They have been placed thus
by a few soreheadss" in both cities. (Gaskin

apologized for using this word-we won't). It
behooves all of us, both in Port St. Joe and We-
wahitchka and other communities throughout
Guilf County to dwell more on the problems
and tribulations of our neighboring communi-
ties in Gulf County to work toward better har-
mony and neighborliness. The advantage of this
harmony can easily be seen. Our County would
leap forward in advancement if this attitude
could be brought about throughout our county.
The first phrase that springs forth in our
mind on a subject like this, is that old child's me-
morv verse, "Love thy neighbor". It would ap-
pear that too many of us have forgotten this
little verse, or could it be that the greater part
of us just didn't ever bother to learn it in the
first place. At any rate we are not trying to
pry into your religious affairs. All we want is
for you, Mr. Port St. Joe Citizen, to do your
part in creating a neighborly attitude toward
our other county communities.
It may be hard to believe but Port St. Joe
depends on Wewahitchka and every other com-
munity in the county, no matter how small, just
as it- depends on other cities in the State and
Nation., We live next door to these communi-
ties and it is only common courtesy to act neigh-
borly. Unloosen and live a friendly life and the
sun will seem to shine more brightly in your
particular part of the world. It doesn't cost a
thing, just a little courtesy and friendliness.
A subject that is a little late in getting here,
but, we believe, a suggestion that is well worth
bringing before the public.

There Is No
Place in Religion
A PLAUSIBLE philosophy ot
life has said, "Be good and
you will be happy."
But if happiness consists in
being free from danger and im-
mune from pain, the sufferings of
good men have revealed how
false is that easy adage.
A deep mystery of life is that
the innocent have suffered with
the guilty. It is the mystery o.
the Cross and the suffering and
i-crifice of Christ Himself.
The hostility that Jesus
aroused in. His prejudiced. fel-
low townsmen as He began His
ministry in Nazareth continued
on the part of many throughout
Strange to say, it was the finest
things that He did that aroused
the most violent opposition
Religion ought to make men
humane, kind, considerate, ready
and eager to help one another.
But, unfortunately, it has often
made them bitter and full of
It was not 'unnatural that the
claims of Jesus should be ques-
tioned by some, as they had been
by His own brothers. But why
should His pronouncement of the
forgiveness of sins have aroused
If He-had no power to forgive
sins, the sins would not be for-
given. To question His author-
ity was one thing-to hate Him
The opposition of certain
Scribes and Pharisees and offi-
cial religious authorities had
some justification. They were
the official representatives of re-
ligion. As Jesus Himself said,
