HAVE YOU RE-REGISTERED?
As,you probably know, this is a very timely
question! You and the rest of the citizens of
Gulf County who wish to vote in the coming
elections have only eleven more days in which
to qualify. This doesn't just mean new residents
to the county or those who ,are just becoming
eligible to vote. This means everyone in the
county. Yes EVERYONE! It is imperative
for.everyone in the county to re-register. This
is imperative because the county is setting up a
new registration system and a revised voting list.
If you do not re-register before january 31 you
cannot vote in the coming elections no matter
-how long, you have lived in the county or nro
matter how long you have been registered in
Only a handful of Port St. Joe future voters
have re-registered, at the time of this writing;
approximately twenty per cent.to be exact.
We wonder' if the people of Port St. Joe
and Gulf County realize they iill lose their bal-
lot rights unless they re-register?
It is vitally' important that you attend to
this matter immediately. It is doubly impor-
tant that you re-register since there are some
important elections coming up this year. One,
and probably the,most important is the election
of a governor to fill the unexpired term of late
governor Dan McCarty. In the county, the
importance to you in the coming elections is just
ps great as the gubernatorial election is to the
-state. This year we must select two new coun-
ty commissioners. If you are not satisfied with
the way thecounty is being run, be sure to re-
register so' that you may help see that your will
if carried out. Another important election com-
ing up is the selection of a Representative to
the State Legislature.
Would you deem these elections important
enough to take the time to go and re-register?
If you live South of Fifth Street, you go to
Wall Electric Company and register with Mrs.
Charles Wall. If you live to the north of Fifth
Street you must re-register with Mrs. Ed Prid-

you passed on the street without a
second look. You swallow your
Adam's Apple, and start angling
around for an introduction.
Well. brother, that's the story of
the 1954 Florida State Fair. It is
a brand new show, a different show
and presents so many innovations,
so many changes and so many new
features you just wo't recognize it.
'Changes, new and startling, have
occurred in almost every depart-
ment. Remarkable improvement
will be evident in the commercial
and agricultural exhibits. The
brand new "New Worlds .in Mo-
tion Show" presented by the
Chrysler-Plymouth people and oc-
cupying one of the largest build-
ings0 on the grounds is both enter-
taining and educational. You
shouldn't miss it.
Improvement is evidenced in ev-
ery department. The old, run-of-
the-mill type of exhibits have been
discarded to make way for new
modern displays and presentations
that will put the 1954 Florida State
Fair in a class by itself. It really
is new and different-and I almost
said "Bigger and Better."
Maybe you have seen the Electri-
cal Exposition sponsored by the
Tampa Electric Company that aas
been a feature of the fair for the
last few years. You will find the
1954 version much different. Ad-
vances in electrical science have
been so rapid that most of the pre-
sentations this year will be so ad-
vanced and changed you Will find
it an entirely new show.
'The same holds true for cattle,
poultry, women's work, art, flow-
ers, commercial, industrial and ag-
ricultural displays. Arrangements
have been modernized and improv-
ed. Booths have been remodeled
and revamped. The old run-of-the-
mill type of exhibit has given way
to new treatments that are more
impressive and more pleasing.
Remember the dates of the 1954
Florida State Fair-Feb.. 2 to 13.
There won't be a dull moment with
gay and wonderful parades, cham-
pionship automobile racing, thrill
shows and the greatest hippodrome
presentation ever offered. The fam-
ed Gasparilla-parade and ceremony
as well as the Children's Gasparilla
parade will be for superior to any-
thing previously presented. Plan
now to attend the 1954 Florida
State Fair in Tampa.

Today I will take my senator and

this, brothers, I'll say, this land of
the free is not as free as it used
to be and even where it is free for
an hombre like myself to spend his

of the realm buys only half as

you don't rise up and get Sambo

about the new school's name, Char-
lie said they could have his flag.
Now, excitement is high at the
school over which lucky kid will
get a trip to Washington to pick
up this historic gift.
IBIG ISURPRISE-Biggest sur-
prise this season from the Florida
delegation was Congressman Bill
Lantaff's announcement that he
would not run for' reelection in
1954. Lantaff gave the high expense
of being a congressman as the rea-
son he retired. Each year, he said,
he was running several thousand
dollars behind-and was rapidly
using up all of his savings. This
decision of course throws the Mi-
ami race wide open :Already set
for a try at the job are Dr. Floyd
A. Wright, a professor at the Uni-
versity of- Miami; Dante Fascell,
a young Miami lawyer; Robert
Givens, lawyer and Dade County
NO SURPRISE-It was no sur-
prise to the people of the sixth dis-
trict this morning to read that
Congressman Dwight Rogers had
announced for reelection. Up to
how, he has no opposition.
SNEW FACE-Joe Fuller, 33 year
;id Lakeland insurance' man,. has
been named secretary to Congress-
fian Jim Haley to succeed Boone
D.: Tillett, Jr., of Lake Wales. Pul-
ler holds .a BS degree in Agricul-
tural problems po Florida's 7th lis-
PR~ERE JUNKET-The Govern-
ment of Cuba will foot the bill
whien Congressmtan Syd Herlong:
and nearly 30 other members of
the House Agricultural Committee
take off Friday for a week of Sugar-
Act hearings in Havana. While
there, the committee will tour the
star cane* fields and hear argu-
ments for continuing the present
sugar quota treaty with Florida's
nearby Latin-American neighbor.
THE GREEK WAY-A visitor to
Congressman Courtney Campbell
this week was Dr. John George
Zighdis, Representative of the Is-
land of Rhodes in the Greek Par-
liament. Zighdis was greatly im-
pressed by Campbell's office facili-
ties. His job in Greece is full-time,
he is paid only $170 a month, with
no office or staff furnished. While
visiting the U. S. he will stop off
in Tarpon Springs, where several
of his former Greek constituents
are now American citizens and vote
in Campbell's district.
Mqnford B. Chandler Is
Stationed on "Missouri"
Monford B. Chandler, gunner's
mate first class, USN, son of Wil-
liam B. Chandler of Port St. Joe,
and husband of the former Miss
Barbara McArdle of Jakin, Ga., has
reported for duty aboard the bat-
tleship USS Missouri.
The Missouri, whose deck was
the scene of the surrender of the
Japanese to the Allied forces in
World War II, is now undergoing
an extended upkeep and repair pro-
gram at the Norfolk Naval Ship-
yard. She has had almost two years

done is through industry," Brailey
Odham, candidate for governor,
has been stating during his cur-
rent campaign tour of the state.
"The tourist business is fine, and
we must do all we can to encour-
age it, but the increase of industry
will build up Florida's economy to
such an extent that we will not
have to depend entirely upon the
lush tourist months," Odham con-
"The only way it can be done is
through cooperative effort, with
everybody pulling together. As gov-
ernor, I will do everything within
my power to attract industry to
the state," Odham pointed out.
In addition to serving as chair-
man of the industrial board in the
eity of Sanford, Odham was instru-
mental in providing the first adult
;vocational training courses in his
- home section of the state.
