by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
"Judge" Carswell, new editor
of the Jackson County Floridian
in Marianna called us one of the
"good" columnists of this area.
After reading some of the
other offerings of editors of this
editor, we thought our bumb-
lings to fill this column were
not so hot. But of course, who
are we to argue with a trained
It's a problem for us to write
a column. The hardest thing
is to get a subject, then the hard
part is thinking up enough "em-
broidery" to do the job as it
should be done.
You take for instance, Earl
Sellers of the Washington Coun-
ty News, our favorite of the
Northwest Florida columnists.
Editor Sellers can lose a shirt
button and fill up two interest-
ing columns on the editorial
page about that lost button.
Then there's James P. Griffin
over in DeFuniak Springs. He
spouts poetry and can always
lean back,on this medium if he
has nothing to write about. And
since poetry is written line for
line and not in paragraphs, he
can take a good poem and fill
up a good big space.
And of course, Wallace Finlay
up in Blountstown is a former
school teacher, so naturally he
can talk at most any lengths.
But Wallace is a gardener and
in cases of no subject, his garden
fills up his column.
The new editor of the Grace-
ville News, "Red" Spivey is be-
coming one of our favorite col-
umnists with his home town col-
umn about this and that, mostly
about how he has to finagle
around to keep from getting in
the doghouse with his wife, Miss
There are many others, that
fill up column after column of
good reading week after week
with apparently no effort at all.
But me and Jiggs Zingarelli
down at Apalachicola are print-
ers and "learning" to be editors
so we have to rely on a bushel
of copy and ideas to come up
with a column each week. If
we don't have the bushel ot cu,
then there is little or no column.
We didn't mention Tom Leo-
nard's column up in Milton be-
cause he doesn't send us one of
his papers, even though we do
send him one of ours. Of course
we don't get the Floridian either,
but we are looking forward to
receiving them both after this
Well, I declare, here I've
messed around and scraped up
a column for another week.

Saturday or Sunday as it does this
year, the governor may proclaim
the preceding Friday as State' day.
Designating April 1 as "Pasqua
Florida Day", 'the governor has
urged "all Floridians to observe this
day in the public school of Florida
and by the public generally."
From T. Frederick Davis's "His-
tory of Jacksonville":
"March 27, 1513, was Easter Sun-
day, Pascua Florida in the language
of the Spaniard. Along the stretch
that we now call the Florida east
coast north of Canaveral the wea-
ther was stormy and the sea was
running high. Off shore three cara-
vels lingered with sails reefed
down, for land had been sighted
that day and the aventurers aboard,
wishing to investigate, hove to for
the weather to calmn. They loitered
northerly along the coast a week;
then headed in, and in the night,
April 2, came to anchor near the
"Here the commander with his
principal officers formally landed,
probably at sunrise of April 3.
Throwing the royal banner of Spain
in the breeze, they declared allegi-
ance to the crown and proclaimed
possession of the country which
they supposed was an island, in
the iame of Ferdinand, their king.
Following the custom of that day
to commemorate important events
with the names of feast days or
patron saints, in this case, because
the discovery was made on Easter
Sunday, they named the new land
"This scene on the beach was
the landing of Juan Ponce de Leon
was the opening of the positive his-
tory of the white man in North
Thus with the discovery of Flor-
ida by Ponce de Leon as her in-
troduction, Mrs. Louise M. Porter's
"Pasqua Florida" has created in
poetry for the first time this his-
torical landing of Ponce de Leon.
Beginning with Ponce de Leon's
Fountain of Youth she runs the
nuances of Florida's history to
"Beginnings End" where she adds
a four line poem after quoting Sir
Walter Scott's, "This is my'own,
my native land."
"Pasqua Florida" is published by
Dorrance and Company, Inc., of
Philadelphia. It is one of a series
of contemporary poets of Dorrance
and is attractively bound in blue
Mrs. Porter's love of Florida is
indicated in every line and page of
'the volume. A native of Apalachi-
cola and now living in Port St.
Joe, her knowledge of Florida and
its history make her poems a veri-
table joy to native Floridians and
to all those who may read the book.
"Tarpon Springs comes in with
its share of Florida lore in "Lace
of Eternity". Using the sponge as
a symbol of the Cradle of Civiliza-
tion as it 'has been transplanted
here and its traditions carried on,
under her facile pen her lyrics be-
come a Greek Classic, as delicate
as a Fragonard".
To Floridians and to all those
who may read the book, it is highly
recommended as out-standing in

YALTA'S CHICKEN HOME TO ROOST
"The Government of the United States un-
der Republican leadership will repudiate all
commitments contained in secret understand-
ings, such as those of Yalta, which aid Com-
munist enslavements." Thus ran a passage of
the GOP campaign platform of 1952.
Two years, four months and two weeks
after endorsement of that platform by the voters
of America, the official record of the Yalta con-
ference has been belatedly, and apparently acci-
dentally, brought into the, light of day. In the
meantime, there has been no repudiation, and
none seems likely. In the absence of any state-
ment by the party's standard-bearer on these
revelations, Presidential Press Secretary James
C. Haggerty told reporters that President Eisen-
hower had not been consulted on the release
of the half-million word report. He also said
the President had not studied the Yalta papers.
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, whose
change of heart on releasing the documents be-
came a "Hobson's choice" after the papers were
leaked to the press, expressed doubt that pub-
lication would quiet the storm. "I expect the
controversy to go on through the ages," he told
reporters at Washington's National Airport as
he took off on a good will tour of Canada.
In London, an irate Sir Winston Churchill
- sole survivor of the triumvirate who conceded
to themselves the authority and wisdom to divide
up the world and to impose upon it a global
government which they could control declared
it was "the American version, and in no sense an
official version" that had been published. This
transcript, he said, contained "some serious mis-
takes." It is the British feeling that the Yalta
revelations may injure the Churchillian efforts
to arrange a new "Big Three" conference. And
whatever the Russians may think, we would ex-
pect the American public to be less than enthus-
iastic for more of the same.
We can expect analysis and discussion of
these papers to go on0 for weeks. We may, in
fact, have a British version to wade through and
digest. And in that case, it hardly seems poss-
ible that the Reds will fail to come up with one
of their own. But no matter what variations
may be presented, the central fact bf Yalta,
that should be most significant to us today, is
that it was here in these select and secret
huddles and not at San Francisco, that the
United Nations was hatched from the egg
laid at Dumbarton Oaks.
To "repudiate secret understandings,
such as those of Yalta", would be to repudiate
the UN as the Administration must have found
out after receiving its public mandate.

Christ's own commandment (St. Matthew, 22:

with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with
all thy mind." This is the first and great com-
mandment. And the second is like unto it,
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." On
these two commandments hang all the law and
the prophets. That's straight talk.

955 STYLING /
2" LOW-PRICE CARS
BY VOTE OF ALMOST 4 TO 1
THOUSANDS PREFER PLYMOUTH'S
STYLING IN NATION-WIDE SURVEY
A well-known independent research
organization asked thousands of
people-in New York, Chicago, Detroit,
Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles-
to compare the appearance of
'S6 models of the three low-price
cars. Opinions were received
from men and women-from
people of all ages-from ouners-
of all the different makes of cars.
The remdlt. are below.
HERE'S WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT OF PLYMOUTH I
Compared with low-price car "A"
Plymouth is 62
better looking I
Car "A" is
better looking 106%
Almost 4 to 1 in
(22% liked "both
about the same")
HERE'S WHY YOU'LL PREFER PLYMOUTH, TOOl
Plymouth '55-with THE FOR-
WARD LOOK-is the only low-
price car to offer you honestly
new styling, instead of a mere your
face-lifting. It's bigger than the
"other 2" cars (longer than car Plym oU th
"A" by 8.4 inches!). It's lower
and sleeker, with a host of styling cdea c ei
advances that wins the most headquarters for value
applause in the lowest-price field.
See everything Plymouth has to PP"C
Yes, the big swing is to Plymouth-See it today-drive it away!
Now while your family is growing up, you, too, can
of eveay dollar
74 3Sbehind your
r7,~T Gulf Life policy
1i l a Isinvested in
"The way this family is growing",
Says Mr. JAB of Jacksonville, Fla.,
S- I was sure glad to hear of Gulf Life's
Sf new Preferred Risk protection plan.
i""' Now, while we're still young,
.~ we can have real family protection!
"This is the way it works out
for me. The plan is available in
units of $10,000 or more. I took one unit. Since I'm 35, I am able
to provide this for only about $17 per month. If anything should
happen to me, there are many ways it would pay off for my family.
One would be an income of $179.10 a month for 5 years
(a total of $10,746). Another way would be $96.10 a month for 10
years (a total of $11,532). BUT, if I'm still around until I'm 65,
it pays me a guaranteed annual income of $ 77 or $39.75 a month."
This new Preferred Risk Plan fits neatly into your present
insurance program. That insurance is among your most precious
possessions. It can be adapted to your family's changing needs. Your
Gulf Life man will be glad to help. Call him. He's at your service.

Success with Inconei
Angry owners of a particular cor.
mercial refrigerator blamed thw
manufacturer for failure of.the units
and subsequent food spoilage. A hur-
ried investigation revealed failure
of the diaphragm in the temperature
control. The diaphragm material,
weakened by constant compressor
pulsations, stiffened and failed un-
der temperature changes. The prob-
lem was resolved by substituting
Inconel, a nickel-chromium-iron al

to arrange your hills in straight

It says on the seed packet:

For medium sized seeds, make
the drill by using the end of
the hoe handle. For larger seeds
use the edge of 'the hoe blade,
pressed lightly if you want an
inch-deep drill, more heavily
for deeper sowing.
The depth to use depends
somewhat on the nature of the
soil. In sandy loam they may
go a little deeper than in heavy
clay; and in hot weather they
should be at least twice as deep
as in the mQist spring weather.
Above all, except on a heavy
slope, in making a drill, keep it

One of the natural characteristics
of cranberry jelly and other tart
fruit jelly is to "Weep" after the
mold is cut. To prevent this, place
