Trexler tires After 5
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
Took another flying lesson
Sunday afternoon. I am now a
seasoned veteran with 2% hours
of instruction. Of course, I have
a few more hours as a passenger.
Sunday we flew up to 8,000
feet, the first time I had been
this high, to practice some turns
and stalls. You know how hot
a day it was Sunday, but at 3,000
feet its sorta chilly. Anyhow we
practiced stalls and turns and
tried to learn to keep the nose
up on a turn and to keep the nose
low enough, while keeping it up,
so that the plane wouldn't lose
any speed. The hardest thing is
to take a 180 degree turn or a
90 degree turn and know when
you have turned that many de-
grees. I'll have to tell you now,
when you get up 3,000 feet and
start turning this way and that
you don't know which way you
are headed. -
Anyhow, on the way back to
the airport at Apalach, Paul
Player, the instructor, instructed
me that I could make the land-
ing approach. Of course, this
tickled me no end. Here an eve-
ning had been spent learning
turns and now I could use them
and get in some glide practice,
1Well, we aiAc- the approach
and were about 100 feet from
the end of the runway and 200
feet off the ground when Paul
said, "Ok, take her on in". "Man,
you crazy fool" we said, "you
take this thing". "Go on," he said
"you can land it".
Now brother, I'll tell you that
is a sickening feeling. Here I
had never even tried to land the
thing before, and here was that
hard, hard, hard, hard concrete
runway rushing up at me at 60
miles per hour and I was expect-
ed to straighten out at exactly
the right time and ease down
on it with all three wheels at;
the same time.
Well friend, I'm still here to-
day to tell you that I did it. I
mean I didn't even bounce once
and that crate set down just so
pretty. Confidentially, the darn
things practically land them-
selves, which surprised the life
out of me.
Did you ever notice how How-
ard McKinnon sorta, halfway,
nearly bout waddles like a duck
when he walks. Did you ever
wonder why he waddles, er a
walks, like that? I'll tell you, his
waist line will give you a clue.
I went out to the barbecue that
the Railroad Company threw in
honor of L. J. Trexler who retir-
ed on May 31, and I tell you for
certain sure that Howard Mc-
Kinnon can eat more barbecued
chicken and spare ribs than any
white boy I know. After a bout
with a dinner plate like he had
Tuesday night, he couldn't do
anything but waddle.
If the Railroad Company gives
a feet like that every time any-
body retires, they'll have hall the
old hands like Bernard and Stets
Pridgeon, Tom Alsobrook, J. 0.
Baggett and Joe Sharit retiring
just to get a big feed like that
one Tuesday night.
Out at the water plant Tues-
day afternoon taking the pictures
across the column, we tried to
get Mr. Gladen, foreman of the
job, to pose at the valve cutting
on the water system. He said,
"No sir, buddy, if anything goes.
wrong, I don't want the people
of this town to know who to
get hold of". Well, Max Kilbourn
who has been inspecting the job
for the city put forth a brave
chest and walked right up to
that valve and grabbed hold
with both hands and acted real

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word
is th, urhtfully weighed. The spoken word barely asserts;
the printed word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lo.'t; the printed word remains.
The first part of last week, Bay County
said, "Yes sir, neighbor, you can have Mexico
Beach. We won't do a thing to keep you from
getting it. Then all of a sudden, they change
their mind. Representative Frank Allen told a
Gulf County delegation, "If the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners don't object, I'll vote for the
measure." Then all of a sudden on another day
he says, "I won't vote for giving Gulf County
even a grain of Bay County sand!" or words to
that effect. We won't say what probably was
the factor that changed his mind.
We say that the Bay County boys are being
just a bit hoggish.
A whole lot hoggish, if you want to know
Last year, Bay County drained the property
owners of Mexico Beach for $19,090.00 in taxes
and gave back practically no services in return
for the tax money. They received the sum to-
tal of the use of two county trucks for a day or
two to haul some clay for the $19,090.00. Do
you call that fair, Mr. Bay County Commissioner?
We don't. Mexico Beach residents had to buy
their own fogging machine to spray for mosqui-
toes and buy their own insecticide. Bay County have the Mexico Beach area, then we are sorry said ignore,
Commissioners practically laughed in their face for what we say. If not, we wish we could have
when Mexico Beach residents asked for insecti-
cides to spray their area. They. ask for the pro-
tection of a deputy sheriff in their area and are
told that "the cost is prohibitive". We dare you,,
Mr. Bay County Commissioner, to let the people
of Mexico Beach vote on whether or not they
want to remain in your County.
And then we get on the school subject., The
- children of Mexico Beach go to school at Port
St. Joe on Gulf County's finest school bus. And
all because the Gulf County people are good
neighbors. While it is costing the Gulf County
tax payer to educate Bay County children, Bay
County collects nearly $11,000.00 last year in
school taxes from these children's parents and
this year, the total will run up to nearly $14,000.
We don't blame you Bay County, for not
wanting to get rid of this gold mine in taxes for
w--hich you don't even have to expend a red cent.
except to pay the tax collector for collecting these
taxes. No sir, if you can collect all this money
in taxes and let the 50-odd children in this com-

Alexandria. Alexandria retains
the appearance and atmosphere
of its historic past, and has many
old buildings which bring to
life the era of the American
Revolution and the War Be-
tween the States.
Fredericksburg and the sur-
rounding countryside are filled
with reminders of the Civil War.
The Fredericksburg National
iMilitary Park preserves
trenches, earthworks and gun
emplacements used by both
armies in four great battles. In
town are the law offices of
James Monroe, the homes of
'George Washington's mother
and sister, and the Mercer
Apothecary Shop, preserved as
it was in 1777.
Richmond also is filled with
historic homes and buildings.
This was the capital of the Con-
federacy from 1861-1865, and its
battlefield park commemorates
the struggle for the city. It is
now the capital of Virginia.
Williamsburg lies between
Richmond and Norfolk. This
was the capital of Virginia Col-
ony from 1699 to 1779. The en-
tire town has been authentically
restored so that it looks very
much as it did in the 18th Cen-
tury. Among the beautiful
buildings to see are the Gover-
nor's Palace with its adjoining
gardens, the Capitol Building
and Raleigh Tavern. Also inter-
esting are the Guardhouse with
its collection of early firearms,
and the Craft Shops where early
American arts and trades are
practiced before t'" visitors'

of outstanding interest. To the

are Lexington, the home and

Some things you can see right away that
tell you this is the year of the big Dodge
move. (Sales have doubled over last year!)
You can stack the new Dodge up against
other cars in its field, and see how much
larger and more luxurious it is: Up to 9
inches longer than competition.
You can see the distinction of new Dodge
styling, with eager lines that are stealing
the "OH's" from the costliest cars. The

"sparkle" of twin-jet taillights and three-

But more important than this is the deep-

That is something you discover through

Why people who
could pay more buy
More and more people who used to drive
costly cars are being enthusiastically won
over by Ford's Thunderbird-inspired styling
and Trigger-Torque "GO."
Whyi, indeed, psay more?
Take for example, a person who
had wages of $300 per month for
ten ears and then suffered a stroke
which incapacitates him for ten
years before he reaches 65. Prior
to the new law his social security
payment at age 65 would have been
basWd on earnings of $150 monthly.
The new law permits this wage
earned to make application for the
disability freeze, and if on the ba-
sis of medical evidence he is deter-
mined to be totally disabled, the
ten years in which he could not con-
tribute toward social security will
not be counted against him. His
benefit rate will be based on the
$300 monthly earnings which he av-
eraged prior to the onset of his dis-
ability and not on the $1150 level
which would have been used prior
to the change in the law.
The old-age and survivors insur-
ance section of the Social Security
Act contains no disability payment
provisions. However, employees
who become disabled through ill-
nress, accident, or other causes
should remember to contact hteir
social-security office upon becom-
ing disabled to insure that their
rights to future payments will 'he
These requirements must be met
to have your social security ac-

You must file application with

You must have been totally dis-
abled for at least six months at

As Experts See Them
What tillage methods can you
look for next year and in the
coming 10 years? What ought you
to plan for? CROPS & SOILS
asked farm leaders to tell what
they see and have to say. A few
of their comments follow.
Jamison of Alabama says that
with better chemical methods,
plowing to run weed seeds under
will be less important. Prepara-
tion may include little more than
mowing to cut down large weeds
and trash and spraying with
Willard of Ohio looks to "once-
over" systems of different kinds
being effective and used in pre-
paring land for corn, at a saving
in labor and no reduction in
yield. He looks for no difference
in the average depth of plowing.
Thorne of Utah thinks future
tillage practices will work toward
greater efficiency. Many useless
and expensive tillage operations,
such as excessive harrowing dur-
ing seedbed preparation and un-
essential cultivation of row crops,
will be discontinued.
Duffee says the pressure in
Wisconsin is to get more work
done in a given period of time.
Farmers are moving in this di-
rection. In 1940, about half of
the corn was checked and the
other half drilled. At present, 75
percent is drilled.
Mechanical weed control equip-
ment in Texas may see a
greater use of the rotary hoe,
according to H. P. Smith. There
may be a trend toward shal-
lower cultivation with shovels
and sweeps. Possibly, there will
be a trend toward fewer culti-
vations down to just those re-
quired to control weeds. In-
creased use of chemicals is
likely, both for pre-emergence,
and post-emergence control.
In the wheat-producing -areas
of the western United States,
says C. E. Evans of U.S.D.A.,
tillage methods which keep a
plant or residue covering on the
surface of the soil offer the
greatest opportunity for protec-
tion from both wind and water
