Full cooperation with health of-

Volunteer Fire Dept.
Answers Six Calls
The Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department was called out four
times last Thursday afternoon from
3:00 p.m. to 7:'30 p.m.
The first call was to the St. Joe
Lumber and Export Company where
a forest fire was threatening the
curing and planing sheds of the
lumber mill. The Florida Forestry
'Service was fighting the forest fire.
A little later the Florida Forestry
Service called the local department
for aid on a blaze to the East f
Highland View along the 'banks of
the Intracoastal Canal.
'Thursday afternoon the depart-
ment was called to Oak Grove about
6:15 where a short circuit had set
a house ablaze. The fire was under
control upon arrival of the depart-
ment. While on this call, another
brush fire broke out on Eighth
Street. The department was in ra-
dio contact with the Florida Fores-
try .Service, as it is while on all
calls, and a quick telephone call to
the FFS and a radio call to the
volunteers sent them on their way
to the brush fire.
Tuesday afternoon at.6:30 the de-
partment was called out .by another
brush fire on Eighth Street and
again Tuesday night by the same

"If the iSalk polio vaccine is found
effective and is licensed, we will
be prepared to start vaccinating
566 children in the first and sec-
ond grades of every school in Gulf
County" said Mr. Owens.
The vaccine will be furnished to
Health Departments by the Nation-
al Foundation for Infantile Paraly-
sis without cost for the product. It
will be part of a $9,000,000 supply
purchased with March of Dimes
Funds. It will also be available to
others through physicians at the
But parents were warned by Dr.
Weathington not to jump to the
conclusion that the current plan-
ning indicated the vaccine already
had been proved effective. 'The
vaccine which will be furnished by
the -Polio Foundation is the same
vaccine that was given to 440,000
children last spring" he said. "We
do not know yet whether it really
prevents 'paralytic polio. Until Ap-
ril, when we will learn the results
of the evaluation study now being
conducted at the Un-iversity of Mi-
chigan, we cannot know if the vac-
cine is effective."
This is a completely voluntary
program. Forms will be distributed
through the schools beginning on
March 21. Vaccine will be furnished
only first and second grade children
whose parents have signed and re-
turned one of the forms before
Remember, if the vaccine is not
licensed, there will be no program.

Is lolt; the printed word remains.
We are writing this little speil as an editor
and not as a City Commissioner.
Recently the City Commission voted to
install parking meters in the city and before
that a stop signal light was purchased to install
at the corner of Reid and Third Street due to
the fact that traffic at this particular corner is
becoming particularly hazardous. If you will
remember, we advocated parking meters and a
traffic light at this spot when we first came back
to Port St. Joe. We felt that they were direly
needed. The. meters were needed because they
were the only way possible to effectively police
parking on Reid Avenue and we think that it is
without question that parking on this street
needs regulating. The signal light was needed
at this point because it is a blind intersection in
the busiest part of town. Many accidents have
been narrowly averted.
The parking meter question has brought
only a little reaction from the people. We would
say that the attitude was "Wait and see". Sta-
tistics compiled by "Nation's Business" magazine
show that in towns having no parking meters,
one third of the citizens are in favor of the me-
ters; one third are against and one third just
don't care one way or another. We would say
that two thirds of our population falls in that
last category. We do believe that 90 per cent
of the people will be in the first category after
they become accustomed to using the meters.
The meters will provide an added source
of revenue to the city treasury. And the trea-
sury needs the revenue. Why? Because the
City of Port St. Joe started to build in 1938 and
has provided all the services offered by any town
of comparable size anywhere around and all of
it debt free with the exception of the new wa-
ter system and a few notes on the City Hall.
Take into consideration that the other cities
about us have been building for many more years
than Port St. Joe. They all had City Hall build-
ings. Water and sewage systems installed long
ago. Parks and playgrounds that date back to
the First World War. The City has come a long
way since its founding and it is still going ahead
with leaping strides.
We have already heard much talk against
the traffic signal light. We feel it was needed
and if you think not, try going from Williams
Avenue to Monument Avenue down Third Street
on any afternoon from noon on until business
closing time. It will take you about as long
with the present system as it will to go down
Reid the full length. And a lot of traffic tries
to cross at this point. The corner has resulted
in many scratched fenders and it is liable to
result in something worse.

The Episcopal ser-
vice is called a corpo-
rate service that is,
we all take part in it.
Thus, when the min-
ister says, "Let us pray," it is a common effort.
The prayers he uses are almost all printed in
the Book of Common Prayer. We don't think
it's any more unusual to pray out of a book than
to sing out of a book. You see, we do it together.
That's one of the things we believe you'd en-
joy about being an Episcopalian the feeling
that you're part of things. In the primitive
church, in fact, clear back in Old Testament
times, the main part of the religious service was
praise and worship of God and earnest prayer
for his aid and forgiveness.
The sermon- or instruction part of the ser-
vice was secondary. In many churches today,
however, the service is centered around the ser-
mon. The congregation sits back to listen or to
be spectators, rather than being actual partici-
pants in the service.
In the Episcopal Church, we join together in
the worship and praise of God. You are invited
to join us today in the active worship of
God at the Episcopal Church near you.

Prayer? Send for "What Does the Epis-

Eastman himself was killed.
This was Eastman's article:

Ford's 162-h.p. Y-block V-8 and 182-h.p. Y-block
Special V-8 now offer new Trigger-Torque power!
When you Test-Drive Ford's new
Trigger-Torque power you're in for a
thrilling .surprise. For here is power
that can get you moving in split sec-
onds and give you safety-fast
passing ability. It has actually been
measured that it takes the rear wheels
as little as 7/100 of a second to react
to your touch on the gas pedal. Such
Go-power ain come only from engines
which are more than merely new-more
than ordinary V-8 engines. And that's
exactly what these Ford engines are.
They are the result of the most ad-
vanced V-8 engineering a result of
Ford's experience in building more
V.-8 engines than all other makers com-
bined have ever built!
Ford's 1955 engine news resulted from 23 years'
experience building over 14,000,000 V-8 engines
In 1932 Ford introduced the V-8
engine to the low-price field. And it
was only just recently that other makers
in Ford s field adopted this kind of en-
gine-23 years later. Yet it is interesting
to note that the majority of costlier cars
were offering V-8's some time ago.
Ford's V-8 experience has never paid
off better than this year. Now you can
enjoy the ultimate in "Go"-new Trigger-
Torque power. Now you get the greater
smoothness of Ford's rigid deep-block
design. Now you gain the savings of
higher compression ratios. Now you
gain the power of the biggest Ford ca.
Come in. Take your Test Drive to-
day. Ford has much more to offer th:,t's
new. You'll find beautiful Thundei bird
