ETAO SNRDLU.
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Our face is red, our slip is
showing, we made a mistake
and what's worse, everybody saw
it. No doubt you noticed it too,
if you could tear your selves
away from the ads printed inside
The Star last week and happened
to read the front page. For right
there in a great big picture on
the lead story, was a glaring er-
ror. That was NOT Mrs. Ben
Williams, it was Mrs. Erma
Creel, head long distance opera-
tor.
Now the excuse Our engrav-
ings for last week's paper didn't
arrive until about 8:30 and we
figured it was just too late to go
find somebody to identify all
the operators, so we just decided
to leave the names off. Then we
figured, well these people are
all from Apalachicola and hardly
anybody here knows them any-
way, but there was Joe Sharit
and (Mrs. Wliliams) standing
there and everybody knew them
so we decided to put their names
on the cut lines.
That just goes to show you
that the eyes can deceive you.
It wasn't Mrs. Williams at all
but we still say, "It sure did
look like her". (If she wore glas-
ses. )


Another first has entered our
life. We have been airplane fly-
ing for the first time.
Paul Player, local theatre
manager, and formerly one of
Uncle Sam's flyboys in North Af-
rica bought himself a little pud-
dle-jumper recently and he has
been giving us a flight every so
often. That first time was a dilly
too.
Of course you know the- im-
pression that onr"e .f ose little
"grasshoppers" gives you just
a few little sticks covered with
cloth and an engine in the front.
Well Paul got us in the plane,
(by holding a knife in our back
and against our better judg-
ment) and told us to put the
safety belt around our middle.
"No sir," we says, if anything
goes wrong, I want no belt hold-
ing me back". But I tightened it
up like a good boy.
We held the wheel back and
held our foot on the brake while
Paul twirled the propeller to
crank the engine. (All with mis-
givings, because we could just
vision that engine starting and
the plane scooting off across the
field, and all we knew how to
do was open the door). But the
engine started and the darn
thing sounded like a Model "A"
Ford. Well you know a Model
"A's" reputation for running so
we felt better, until we started
hearing the rods knock. And all
Paul's assurances that all air
cooled engines sounded like that
we were still ready to get out-
but we were strapped in.
So nothing would do but to
go flying.
Well, the baling wire, cloth
and engine, carrying two hap-
less souls taxied down the run-
way, and the first thing I knew
we were in the air looking down.
Now it wasn't so bad. Just like
floating. In fact it was fun -
until he turned that thing! In
turning the plane, it banks too,
causing it to lay over on its side.
Well, of course the first turn
had to be toward the side I was
sitting on. Then I began to won-
der if that little old safety belt
would hold me in, because there
was nothing between me and the
hard, hard ground, 900 feet be--
low, but a few sticks and some
flimsy cloth. But after awhile it
became alright.
The next sensation came when
the power was cut to come in
for a landing. After the engine
was cut, that thing dropped 50
feet right quick like. "Hey, boy,
we yelled, "turn that thing back
on!" "Relax", says Paul, "I'm only
going to land". Well, we had
been worrying about getting in
the air, and now we were worry-
ing about how we were going
to get back on the ground. As
the ground came closer, we tried
to push further back into the
seat. And then the first thing
you know, the wheels touched

City Offers Letter of Intent To Use

Gas System If Constructed


The City Commission of Port St.
Joe, Tuesday night purchased the

Highway Post Office
Urged For Coast Area

The operation of a highway post
office between Tallahassee and
Pensacola via Panama City and the
coastal towns, including Port St.
Joe, is under consideration by the
Post Office Department.
Announcement of the proposed
operation was revealed in Pa'nama
City Tuesday night by Postmaster
Bernard O'Brien when he addressed
members of the St. Andrew Mens
Club. in the Masonic Temple. The
proposal was recently sent to the
.Post Office. Department, in %Wash-
ington by the Panama City post-
master, who is a former newspa-
perman.
"A highway post office system,
connecting Tallahassee and Pensa-
cola via Panama City, would give
thousands of residents on the coast
direct connections between several
towns and cities," O'Brien said.
This service also would greatly im-
prove air mail service for the smal-
ler towns between these three ci-
ties.
The highway post office is a bus
body arranged like a railroad mail-
car and the mail is worked between
towns as the vehicle is moving.

request of the Houston Texas Gas
and Oil Corporation of Houston,
Texas, which company is desirous
of constructing a natural gas pip-
ing system into Florida.
Port St. Joe will be one of the
cities to have natural gas if several
"IF's" are answered. The Gas Com-
pany is now in the process of hav-
ing surveys in all towns they hope
to serve to gain a list 'of potential
customers to carry before the Fed-
eral Power Commission on June 1
to try to gain permission to con-
struct the line to Florida.
According to the gas company
the system will comprise of a 30
inch main from the gas fields in
Louisiana to Lake City. Port St.
Joe would be fed by a six inch spur
line. This main compares with a
eight inch spur line to Panama City
and an 18 inch line to Jacksonville.
The system will have three com-
pressor stations, one at Crestview,
one at Lake City and one near
Haines City.
The lines will be capable of hand-
ling 585,000,000 cubic feet of gas per
day. The peak demand anticipated
for the first three years is 300,-
000,000 cubic feet per day. Provi-
sion has been made to make 350,-
000,000 cubic feet available the day
the line goes into operation.
It is estimated that the line pro-
per will cost $150,000,000.
The Houston Company has esti
mated the needs of Port St. Joe
(including the Paper Mill)' to be
approximately 13,000,000 cubic feet
per day and their plans will pro-
vide for this quantity with an ex-
cess for future development. The
-line is considered economically
feasable only because of the indus-
trial load, (Industry 82%%, Domes-
tic 17%/%). Without the Paper
Mill using gas on an interuptable
basis there will not be a line to
St. Joe.
The Houston Company proposes
to serve large customers such as
the paper mill direct. They plan to
serve cities or their franchised
agents at a point in or near the city.
The estimated cost for a distribu-
tion plant and system for Port St.
Joe will cost $400,000 or more.
The estimated cost -to the distribu-
tion plant will be 55c per M.C.F.
this is roughly equal to .512c per
gallon for butane gas. Even with
the necessary profit that a distri-
bution plant would have, this would
be considerably less for gas than
for the bottled variety.
The City has hired the engineer-
ing firm of John J. Harte Co., to
make a survey of the city and to
ascertain the city's needs in natur-
al gas. A report will be made on es-
timated needs for the city and com-
pared with the gas company's es-
timates 'n a hearing before the Iv l-
eradl .IN er Commission in Wash-
ington. r. C.
The City Commission offered a
letter of intent to use the natural
gas if brought to this area, but
committed the City in no way.
The City pledged itself to use
natural gas if the price is reason-
able and offers a saving for the
people. The letter of intent pledg-
ed the city's help in obtaining a
permit to run the gas line to Flor-
ida and pledged to use gas from
t.he Houston system if the price
was economical for purchase.
Plans are to have the system in
within a year and a half.
Hearings on the permit will start
in June, but it will probably be an-
other four months after hearings
start before permission is granted
by the FPC to construct the line.

EVERY AMERICAN'S BUSINESS
We do not think it is President Eisenhower's
position that possible hostilities involving US
forces in Formosa Straight are none of our busi-
ness, but such an attitude could easily be read
into the news reports of recent days.
Following his regular weekly press con-
ference and "briefing" luncheons at the White
House for leaders of both parties in the House
and Senate consecutively, the American people
and the world at large were no wiser regarding
the Commander-in-Chiefs intentions respecting
the Nationalist offshore islands of Matsu and
Quemoy.
Luncheon guests from both houses reported
that they knew no more than they had' read
previously in the newspapers. Some said the
briefing by President Eisenhower and Secretary
of State Dulles had left them feeling neither
better nor worse about the world situation.
Speaker Sam Rayburn said, "I don't feel any
better."
Previously, at his press conference, the
President had emphasized his displeasure over
war talk, such as had been attributed to Admiral
Robert B. Carney, Chief of Naval Operations.
In answer to a question, he said flatly he would
not reprimand the Admiral, who was reported
in some papers as predicting war in Formosa
Strait by April 15. Declaring that "None of us
possess a crystal ball", the President summed
up by saying: "I do not believe that the peace
of the world, the tranquillity of the world, is
being served at this moment by talking too
much in terms of speculation about such things.
A moment or two later, the President stress-
ed the essentiality of high morale to the success-


ful defense of Formost. "And we must be care- hausen could hardly cover all the evils stemming

If President Eisenhower thinks the Ameri-
can people are inclined to wave the bloody
shirt, he misjudges them gravely. Further, they
accept his word that disclosure of defense plans
might aid the aggressors. But they want to
know, and have a right to know, whether or not
they have been sold out to the appeasers of
Communism.

OPERATION OUTRAGE
We note from the Congressional Record
(where it was reprinted) that Editor Art Wall-

hausen, of THE ENTERPRISE-COURIER, of
Charleston, Mo., wrote a letter to his Congress-
man. "Now that you folks have managed to
raise your salaries sufficiently :to make your
work worth your time expended," he said, "you
might settle down and unpass a bit of legisla-
tion which has caused no end of trouble and
confusion ...
"I have reference to Public Law 199. This
law, passed specifically for the Railray Express
boys, places an arbitrary and silly limitation on
weight and size of parcel post packages mailed
between post offices of the first class."
Mr. Wallhausen went on from there to
describe some of the ridiculous situations the
law had caused in his own experience, such as
the necessity of Charleston business men hauling
parcel post shipments to a town with a second
or third class post office, from which mail trucks
would haul the packages back to Charleston for
dispatch to their destinations!
He did not mention that, since the passage
of P.L. 199, parcel post rates have been boosted
over 70 percent and that this law added as
much as 70 million dollars to the annual postal
deficit. Nor did he point out that Railway Ex-
press rates are even higher. Or that the total
effect seen in sharply decreased parcel post
volume has been to cripple the small mer-
chants up and down Main Street with insupport-
able transportation costs. Or even that Railway
Express is now offering discounts of 20 to 40
percent to large shippers. But then, Mr. Wall-


commonsense to the operation of the Post Office
Department, but still have hopes that the chair-
man (of the Post Office and Civil Service com-
mittee) and other leaders will soon realize that
it is time that Congress acknowledge the mis-
take it made during the 82nd Congress."
By way of bucking up the gentleman's
hopes and your own you might try doing
what Mr. Wallhausen did writing to your
Congressman. Certainly Editor Wallhausen and
Representative Jones have set the stage for you.

You don't have to look far to find the reason for the
tremendous surge to Pontiac. No further than the
fact that only Pontiac produces cars that compete
with the costliest in size, smartness and power, yet
carry a price tag that is well under many in the
lowest-price field.
That's what brings people in to see and drive a
Pontiac-a value story they simply can't afford to

Instructions For Dialing Telephones in The

Port St. Joe Exchange

Do Not Try To Dial Number Until You Hear Dial Tone


How Ti Dial Numbers In the Port St. Joe Exchange
Each telephone has a number BAll "7" or BAll "9" plus
four digits. In order to dial a telephone a person must dial
the "B", the "A" the "7" or "9" whichever the case may be,
and the other four digits in the order in which they appear
in the directory.
The above procedure does not apply if you wish to dial
a telephone on the same line that you are on. How to dial
such a telephone is explained in instructions "How To Dial
Another Telephone On Your Line".

How To Dial Another Telephone On Your Line:"
As explained above each telephone has a number BAll
"7" or BAll "9" plus four digits. If the first three of the last
four digits of the telephone you desire to call are the same
as the telephone you are calling from, these two telephones
are on the same party line. To dial this telephone dial "119"
then the last digit of your directory listing, then the last
digit of the directory listing of the telephone you desire to
call. For example if your telephone number is BAll 7-5412
and you desire to call BAll 7-5414 you should dial 11924.
Then hang up and your telephone as well as the telephone
you are calling will ring. When the telephone you are call-
ing is answered then your telephone will cease to ring. You
should then pick up your handset and start the conversation.
If the telephone you are calling is not answered within 2 to
4 minutes the ringing will cease automatically.

How You See
(Following are a couple of def-
initions by Dr. Wesley Grace,
Optometrist, to help you under-
stand how you see,)
Another common problem is
near-sightedness or myopia. If
you are nearsighted you have
difficulty focusing on objects
that are near to your eyes-be-
yond arm's length. City children
are more likely to be myopic
than those who live out-of-doors
in the country. Unless myopia
is properly treated when a child
is young, it may become progres-
sive and become more severe
the older the child gets. One cor-
rection for myopia is lenses and
another is orthoptics or visual
training by which a child Is
taught to focus at a distance. In
many cases both lenses and or-
thoptics are prescribed.
We now come to the problem
of presbyrpia. This is not a di-
sease but simply a word which
means "old sight". Today almost
everyone over 40 is presbyopic
and the condition becomes more
pronounced the older one gets.
Presbyopia results from the
gradual hardening of parts of
the eye so that it is difficult to
focus, particularly on close ob-
jects with arm's length.
You recognize presbyopia by
discomfort, the blurring of small
type, and the desire to push
reading matter further away
from you to bring it into focus
more easily. The correction Is
a lens that bends light rays and
brings objects into focus at a
point where you can see clearly,
with increased comfort and ef-
ficiency.

S"Let us humbly


.. confess "


? There's the story
Sof the'maan who
felt the urge to go
S \ to church and just
S'dropped in to the first
ione he came to. It
LIIF ~was an Episcopal
\I Church, and when he
T ~walked in, he found
the entire congrega-
tion kneeling and
saying together, "We have left undone those
things which we ought to have done and we
have done those things which we ought not to
have done."
To himself he said, "I guess this is where I
belong," and he knelt in the rear pew with the
rest of the congregation.
That is only a story, but it illustrates the fact
that every Sunday Episcopalians kneel together
to orally confess their sins to Almighty God.
"Let us humbly confess ." is part of the
phrase used by the priest in inviting members
of the congregation to join in confessing our
sins. We feel that this is just as much a part of
church as hymns, prayer and the sermon.
In the Episcopal Church, the mighty and
humble kneel together to confess their sins and
ask God's help for future strength. This is the
spirit of democracy which has made the Angli-
can Communion the common meeting ground
for 45,000,000 persons the world over.
Why don't you join with us? When you go
to the Episcopal Church you feel like you've
"really been in church."

Thought For The Week
I promise myself-


To talk happiness, health and pros-

To learn the lesson present in
everything that happens to me,
so that it will not need to be
repeated again and again!
To try always to put myself in the
other felow's place and see
just how he feels and then
judge aberodingly.


To remember that the best way to
lose friends is to criticize them
