dule For Discussion
Lopics on the agenda for discus-
sion will be a proposed dam for
the Dead Lakes.
The proposed dam was put be-
fore the, Game Commission some
time ago by citizens of Wewahitch-
ka in order to maintain a mean wa-
ter level in the Lakes. Wewahitch-
ka interests desire that the dam
be constructed at the base of the
Dead Lake area near Beard's Land-
Due to the excessive drought in
this area, the Dead Lakes, famous
for their fishing and hunting facili-
ties throughout this area of the
United States, has dried up to the
Chipola River channel in most ..'.
Agitation for the dam began in
1950 when it was evident that the
Lakes were falling due to dry wea-
ther and that the Jim Woodruff
dam on the Apalachicola River
would reduce the area covered by
the famous lakes even more.
The project has been brought ti
the attention of State and National
government branches for action.
Director Jones urges all persons
interested in this project to attend
this meeting of the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.

he makes everything clear
What do they mean, these mysterious terms? Do you have to know them all when
you go to buy a home?
Luckily, you don't. that's what a lawyer is for. He takes the mystery out
of the legal phrases, digs through the fine print. He makes everything clear to you.
Does your sales contract give you all the protection it should? He'll make
certain it does. The property you're buying: does it fit the legal description? Your
lawyer will check thoroughly to make sure. He'll see that get all the things
you're entitled to when you finally move into the house.
In short, a lawyer is the "ounce of prevention" that can save you costly
trouble later on. You'll find that careful buyers make this a rule: never buy pro-
perty without seeing a lawyer.
A Title and Trust Company of Florida Policy
protects you against "hidden risks"
Your lawyer can, and will, find any flaws
that appear in the records. But he knows
there may be hidden risks not shown in
the records-a mistake in names, per-
haps, or an undisclosed heir-these flaws
and many others can lead to a claim
against your title. *
Your protection against such risks is a

THEY'RE KILLING THE WEEKLIES
The present administration of the United
States Government has adopted and is maintain-
mg a measure which, if continued, will probably
destroy the weekly newspapers an important
part of the nation's free press. Here's how:
The US Mail handles newspapers and maga-
zines at a low rate, because the Government
wants to foster the flow of information which is
needed for the effective functioning of denioc-
racy. To qualify for the favorable second class
rate, such mail must be addressed to paid-up
subscribers, and it may 'include not more than
a prescribed percentage of advertising'.
Last year Postmaster General Summerfield
let down the bars He changed the regulations
on third-class mail so that unaddressed, non-
subscription, 100-percent-advertising circulars
can be delivered to everyone by carriers or post
office boxes, at third class rates. He said that
it would save money, for clerks would not have
to sort this mail by name and address; but it has
actually resulted in a huge increase of volume in
a money-losing branch of the postal service.
Weekly newspapers live on advertising in-
come; They are willing to face the legitimate
competition offered by dailies, magazines, radio
and television; and to compete with direct mail
advertising on fair terms.
It costs money to produce and publish the
news which must accompany the advertising in
second-class mail; it costs money to secure and
keep a list of subscribers; it costs money to ad-
dress each paper that is mailed. And now the
Post Office Department accepts for universal
low-cost distribution, circulars and shopping
guides which escape these costs, flooding the
mails and drawing advertising dollars away from
the weekly press."
The Shoreline Times, Guilford, Conn.
Whatever anguish the wierdest election of
our time may have brought to the White House
(which does not seem unsupportable) and to
the contestants who came in second, there were
at least two aspects in which we can rejoice.
It demonstrated once more to the union
bosses that their members are not minions, and
do not vote according to instructions. Second,
and perhaps even more important, it showed up
not only all the experts, but that menacing elec-
tronic brain, Univac!
Consider for a moment what might have
happened if Univac had repeated its more than
uncanny predicting of 1952. We would be well
on our way toward a world of robots served by
human slaves. It would be much less expensive
and exhausting to compute electronically what
people were thinking than to conduct campaigns,
hold elections and sit up all night to learn the
results. Then, having lost our suffrage to a
mess of vacuum tubes, we would be rapidly
taken over as the big Univacs had little Univacs.

MACHINE BEATS CAMPBELL
-Was it a quirk of fate that beat
Congressihan Courtney Campbell in
Tampa? The final count gave Cra-
mer an advantage of only about
1700 votes. And here is the sad sto-
ry-some 3500 Campbell votes
were not recorded, in Tampa due
to a na.sunderstanding in the op-
tration of the voting, machines.
T he ballot was so arranged that a
voter could vote for all "unopposed'
candidates by pulling on one lever.
In order to vote for other candidates
the voter had to vote for them in-
dividually. More than 3500 persons
voted for the "unopposed" candi-
dates only. Since it is inconceivable
that anyone would bother to go to
the polls and vote only for a group
of people who had no opposition
and who were already in-and ig-
nore the other candidates-it is as-
sumed that those 3500 voters thot
they were voting the straight Dem-
ocratic ticket-and for Courtney
Campbell. Since machines are ma-
chines, it is just too bad if a voter
doesn't know how to use one cor-
rectly. The vote is counted the

McCOY'S SUPER MARKET
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA
TO ALL CUSTOMERS:
The retail food business, like man others, has changed greatly in recent years. The large
chain supermarkets with their low prices, brought about by eliminating all extra services, have
made it increasingly difficult for the independent merchant to hold his business. As this trend
continues to increase, we find it necessary to make some changes in our method of doing business.
Our store closed on Monday, November 8, for remodeling purposes and will remain closed
until November 18. This remodeling will add much to the personal appearance of our store in
many ways and will add much to the convenience and comfort of our Customers.
Effective November 18, 1954, we will have our GRAND OPENING, and at this time we
will REDUCE all of our prices down to chain supermarket level. To make this possible we have
joined IGA (Independent Grocres Alliance), the largest independent grocery organization in the
world. This organization, with thousands of stores across the United States and Canada, will
help us to operate more efficiently and will unite the efforts of many independent stores in this
As it is impossible to sdll at chain store prices and at the same time extend credit, we
will be forced to DISCONTINUE ALL CHARGE ACCOUNTS. To those of our customers who have
enjoyed this privilege in the past we regret that this change must be made. However, we trust
that you will appreciate our position in making this change for YOUR benefit and will continue to
patronize our store. Remember, by paying cash here you will reduce your food costs.
Your patronage of our store in the past has been deeply appreciated and we sincerely
hope that we will merit your trade in the future. If we can be of any help with your present
account in assisting you in changing your food budget to a cash budget please contact us and
arrangements will be made for uninterrupted service.
P. S. WHAT IS IGA? -- IGA stands for INDEPENDENT GROCERS' ALLIANCE Ameri-
ca's FOREMOST group of independtly owned and operated food stores, doing busi-
ness from coast to coast under the IGA banner. The combined purchasing power of
this group over 6000 strong .. plus reduced operating costs resulting from
mass merchandising, enables EVERY retailer affiliated with IGA to bring you LOWER
PRICES EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK ON EVERY ITEM.

(above) and Fordor offer a wide selection of new color
and upholstery combinations. Like all '55 Fords, they
have a new wider grille, new visored headlights and
sturdier, extra-narrow pillar-posts for better visibility.
NewSTATION WAGON Series...Thenew6-passenger,
4-door Country Sedan (above) is one of five new do-it-

senger Ranch Wagon and Custom Ranch Wagon.
We invite you to see for yourself. And we tell
you in advance you'll be amazed. For this new
Ford is totally new-outside, inside, and in
thrillingly different performance.

its styling inspiration. Inside, you'll be greeted
by rich, roomy luxury by fabrics never
before offered in a motorcar.
Mighty engines, mightier than in any Ford
before-supply its exciting power. And each
of Ford's three new engines offers the safe,
split-second response of Trigger-Torque Power.

of all, you'll find your kind of car, for there are
16 body styles in four fresh new lines.
When you come in, don't be surprised if you
tell yourself: why look farther-why delay-
you just can't buy better than Ford.

beauties offers the same engineering advancements,
the same graceful contours and clean lines that dis-
tinguish all '55 Fords. Fordor Sedan is illustrated above.
