the Port St. Job exchange.
The long-distance board keeps
three operators busy serving both
Port St. Joe and Apalachicola and

Florida Bank building.
Dial System Coming Here
On midnight, April 30, the Port
St. Joe telephone exchange will be
converted over to a dial operated
system, according to Joe L. Sharit,
vice-president of the St. Joseph
Telephone & Telegraph Company.
The new dial switch-board is, rap-
idly nearing completion and the
changing over of telephones in the
city is in progress now.
Last year, the City Council re-
newed the franchise of the St. Jos-
eph Telephone & Telegraph Com-
pany to operate in Port St. Joe and
asked that the company install
dial telephones in the community.
Joe L. Sharit assured the Council
that the dial system would be put
in operation within 12 to 14 months.
The new system will go into opera-
tion just 11 months from the date
of the signing of the franchise.
According to Sharit the new .sy-s,
tern will be the latest thing in tele-
phone dial systems. The n-6w sys-
tem has facilities to make it pos-
sible to dial numbers anywhere in
thle United States once the nation-
wide hook-up of this system is com-
pleted. For the time being, long
distance calls will be handled in

the fires were set sometime be-

of March 20 on the lands of Hunt

was little wind that night, Owens
said, and fire fighting crews arriv-
ed at the scene before the flames
could spread and develop into a
disastrous wild fire.
According to Gilbert the fires
were started by road side flares
thrown into the.wobds. The burn-

Investigation into the cause of

J. Daffin's office disclosed that a
Washington County motorist trav-

night had seen Wells throwing
flares into the woods and made a
note of his automobile tag number.
On being apprehended at Tyndall
Air Force Base and confronted with
the evidence found by the law en-
forcement officers, Sergeant Wells
confessed to throwing the burning
flares into the woods and causing
the woods fires. Bond for Sergeant
Wells has been se tat $1,000. Ac-
cording to Gilbert the maximum
penalty for intentionally starting a
woods fire is three years in pri-

-Pontiac gives you more for your money than
any other car in America!
Keeping in mind that Pontiac is priced within
the reach of any new-car buyer, consider ihese
three very important facts:
Pontiac is a big car! Pontiac's 122" or 124"
wheelbase is 6-2' to 8Y inches longer than any
of the "low-priced three". It's the biggest car
at its price.
Pontiac is more powerful! Model for model, its
big Strato-Streak V-8 delivers more power per
dollar than any car in its field!
Pontiac is the most distinctively beautiful car at
any price! No other car can match the individu-
ality of Pontiac Twin-Streak styling and Vogue
Right there are three big reasons why Pontiac
sales are at an all-time high. Come in and get all
the facts-for final proof.

CONCERNING THE LICENSE RATES
The City Commission has run up into a
sort of a delima in the re-vamping of the busi-
ness license rate charged 'by the City.
The desire of the Commission is to protect
as much as possible, local people land business
The thorn in the side of the Council now
is the setting of license rates for' out of town
concerns soliciting business in the city. Certain
business concerns want them placed up high
since local businesses also have to pay taxes on
inventory. The Council decided that exhorbi-
tant rates for business licenses would be un-
healthy, both for local business and the buying
public, since it would tend to freeze out out-
side competition. As a result the Council has
come up with a more lenient version of an out-
of-town business license.
After talking to several business men, it has
come to our attention that out-of-town concerns
should pay licenses just like local concerns -
namely, by the amount of inventory carried in
stock at all times. This would place out-of-town
concerns on the same level, requiring them to
pay by their size.
Under the former draft, many out of town
concerns paid less license rates than their coun-
terparts with local concerns. We believe the
inventory plan would remedy the situation.

WE DO A BIT OF REITERATING
From The Blountstown County Record
In last week's issue of The County Record
we did a bit of prophesying and thinking aloud
about our tax set-up in Calhoun County. We
said that we thought we were either going to
have to revamp our tax system, or face the un-
pleasant business of having it done for us.
Since we put that opinion down on paper,
we have returned from the state-wide meeting
of the Florida Education Association. We had
that opinion made stronger by what we heard
We heard at least three men say things that
led us to believe time might be shorter than we
think. We urge immediate action on this thing.
We do that for two reasons. First of all, and
we know you will agree, it is likely that we will
enjoy doing it in our own fashion more than we
will enjoy having it done to us. Our second
reason for urging this is that we believe we can
do a better job than men from other places can
It just doesn't figure that anybody else will
know as much about values in Calhoun County
as people in Calhoun County. We know, for
instance, that rentals should return ten percent.
(You have to get that in the way of a return to
make money.) Figuring that way a building
which is returning $360 a year in rent ought to
be on the books at $3609. Going by this realis-
tic measuring'device, our total valuation will
jump up millions of dollars. We can then re-
duce our millage to a figure which will appeal
to possible investors of money. That is a quick
return we will get for doing right.
Another return we will get, and we might
as well face it, is some more money for local
operations. If we can get this done without
anybody being badly hurt (all taxes hurt) we
will be doing more than is likely to be our lot
if we await the fall of the inevitable blow from
Finally, and this is highly important, we
will have the satisfaction of knowing we have
done the right thing. Let's get on with the

That's not true.
True to the belief
of the primitive Christian Church-the Epis-,
copal Church holds and teaches that all things
are given to us by God for our use- that sin
is not in the thing itself, but in the misuse of
the things God has given us.
So, to the Episcopalian, there is as much sin
in any intemperance overeating, for instance
asthere is in overdrinking or any other over-
indulgence. The moral ethics of the Bible are
of prime importance in the church's teaching.
But, the church refuses to be the conscience of
its members. It expects each to develop a Chris-
tian conscience and a sense of individual respon-
sibility which will use God's gifts as He would
have us use them.
The offertory sentence used each Sunday in
Episcopal Churches, beginning, "All things
come of Thee .," is a constant reminder that
God has given us all things and that it is our
Christian responsibility to use them wisely and

Secret of Radish Quality-
Sow Little But Sow Often
The first radish he harvests
thrills the home gardener more
than the first robin. Three weeks,
more or less, from the time the
seed is sown, round, red, spicy
roots are ready to serve, bring-
ing to the menu a zest which
stimulates winter-jaded appe-
Yet many home gardeners
have trouble devising a radish
program which avoids the waste
that comes when a planting is
too large, and only a fraction
can be used before the roots
turn pithy, and must be thrown
The cause of this Is the very
short season that early radishes
remain edible. The earlier they
are the shorter this season, be-
cause they are growing fast, and
quickly liass by the edible stage
on their way to the goal of all
plant life, the production of seed.
With radishes, as with other
crops, -you must sow according
to what you need. Figure out
the number you will use in a
week, and estimate that twelve
early radishes can be produced
in a foot of garden row. Then
sow a week's supply of an early
variety at a time.
Midseason radishes will be
usable for two weeks, so two
weeks' supply of them can be
sown. The early varieties do not
grow well in hot weather.
If you want a supply all sum-
mer, sow a late, summer vari-
ety for that season. But fre-
quent sowings in small lots is a
good rule for all except winter
radishes which take two months
to mature and remain good for
six weeks. They grow very
large, some weighing several
One way to grow early rad-
ishes is to mix them with the
seeds of parsley, parsnips, car-
rots and beets, all of which are
slow to germinate. Not more

than a tenth as many radishes
as the other seeds should be
used. The radishes will germi-
nate quickly, "marking the
row" where the other seeds lie,
which will assist you in cultivat-
ing. Be sure to pull and eat the
radishes as they mature before
they can crowd the slower crops.
