last Thursday night by 5 to 2.
The Saints have taken three out
of the last four games to help
them along on their road to first
place. The first position is still
firmly held by the Tallahassee
Capitols. The Capitols have lost
four gpmes and The Saints eight.
Last Thursday night Bascom
Hamm went the route for Port St.
Joe to defeat Scott, a classy hurler
from Wewahitchka. Hamm and
Scott battled it out almost hit for
hit until the last inning. Each pit-
cher gave up very few walks and
chalked up several strick-outs.
Tonight The Saints meet the
league leading Tallahassee team
here at the local diamond in what
should be a good ball game.
These two teams have met
four times this year and each has
won two games apiece,
Game time will be at 8:00 p.m.
at Centennial Field.
The Saints are now fielding a
much improved team over the first
part of the season and are battling
for first place. The battle is ham-
pered, however, by an acute case
of emptiness in the bleachers.
Possibly you could remedy part
of this trouble by being at the ball
park tonight.

last year it was $38,835.00.
The County has upped its money
allotted for pest control this year
from $12,000 last year to $17,500.
The reason for this is to take ad-
vantage of more state matching
funds.
Other items in the budget are
the Court House and Jail Interest
and Sinking Fund, $5,150.00. This
is used to retire bonds on the
Courthouse indebtedness bonds.
$864.69 has been supplied for
the Canal Bond Fund and $1,000

to construct health clinics here

Included in the budget are $12,-

Fund to go to the municipalities in
the County. Port St. Joe will re-

No wonder this great



'55 Pontiac is setting



all-time sales records!



It's.bigger, smarter and more powerful than

any other car at anything like the price.,


A sales success like Pontiac's starts on the draw-
ing boards-with engineers and designers who
have been schooled for years in the Pontiac idea
of giving more people more car for less money.
With its long 122" or 124" wheelbase and extra,
big-car heft, Pontiac provides road-hugging com-
fort you get in no other car near it in price!
Now take this big, roomy car and surround
it with the distinction of Twin-Streak styling
and Vogue Two-Toning-beauty that obviously
is calling the turn on the future-and you have
another reason for Pontiac's phenomenal sales
success.
That alone would be enough for most cars-
but not for Pontiac!
Pontiac corners the market on value with the
most powerful engine within hundreds of dollars
of its price. The sensational 200-horsepower


Strato-Streak V-8 with four-barrel carburetor4
is the most modern power you can buy. You're
on even terms with anything on the road-and
you enjoy the greatest economy and dependa-
bility in Pontiac history.
If by now you're thinking "This is what I've
wanted all along!", we suggest you stop in and
talk dollars and cents. That's when you'll get
the final reason for Pontiac's record popularity
-the fact that you can fit a big, powerful,
future-fashioned Pontiac into any new-car budget!
You'll never find it easier to get into the fina-
car class than right now! *Low extra cost opt4ot

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word
is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely assert,
the printed word thoroughly enovinces. The spoken word
is lost- the printed word remains.

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE
Did you ever hear Horace Heidt end his
famous amateur hour program with the adage
of his that "it's better to build boys than to have
to mend men"? We have a boy builder in our
community. In fact we have several boy build-
ers in our community.
The oldest boy builder we have is the Boy
Scouts which is for older boys.
Just recently, civic-minded citizens have
established Little League Baseball to help in
the boy building process. There is even talk
now of more Little League teams for next year
and the possibility of forming a Pony League
which would take the graduates from Little
League.
You would be surprised at how well those
little boys are learning to play baseball. And
you would also be surprised at how well they
are learning to play with one another.
But when they get through the Little
League and the proposed Pony League where
will they go?
The natural answer to that is that they will
play for The Saints and as a result of their past
training we will have a cracker-jack ball club.
Ah, but it looks like The Saints are going to fold
if they don't get a little support. Take away
the goal to work for and what good is the teach-
ing?
Port St. Joe has a good team. Neighboring
towns have good teams too. St. Joe doesn't win
them all, but therd hasn't been a lop-sided score
this season since the scheduled league games
began. These fellows are all home-town boys


- just as they will be when present Little League
players get old enough to play on the team.
We would urge that you help support the
Saints. Baseball all over this section is going
to the dogs and the brand of ball played has
never been any better.
We realize that the team doesn't put out
much publicity on their games, but you must
realize that they must work for a living just
like you do and don't have all the time in the
world to do things like this.
They find the time to play though and we
believe they would appreciate it if you would
find the time to go out to a game or two.

Time To Plan More Beach Resorts
From The Taitahassee Democrat
The Fourth of July week end crowds that
swarmed over the Gulf beaches of the Big
Bend area gave evidence that our coastal
regions are destined to become resorts equal to
those which already have developed farther
west and on the East coast.
Panama City couldn't accommodate the
holiday crowds. Jacksonville Beach couldn't.
Neither could Daytona Beach. But the crowds
will keep coming from Georgia and Alabama
and Tennessee. The lure of sunshine and salt
water is too strong.
We should lose no time in getting ready
to serve them along the coast from Apalachicola
to St. Marks. It will take planning and promo-
tion.


r'I -'---- %%pxob~-k~--apy;r ~ -~-


The beaches and the surf are there. They
should be made more accessible.
The roads are beginning to push into the
coastal territory, opening it up to traffic.
Ferries are operating for the first time be-
tween the mainland, Dog Island and St. George's
island, where facilities for serving the public
are being built.
But ferries can't handle the crowds. They
will carry only 10 cars at a time. Some thought
should be given to limiting them to passengers
during peak periods, which can be done because
it isn't necessary now to take cars on the islands.
(A holiday away from the automobile might be
attractive indeed.)
And eventually, there must be bridges, be-
cause sooner or later the islands will be develop-
ed with roads and houses and recreation and
service facilities. Bridges will be needed for
that maximum growth and development.
It isn't too soon for us to start working for
these things if we are to take full advantage of
the opportunities that are before us.

Any husband and father wishes the best education possible

pay off the mortgage-if he's not around-and income to
provide for his retirement.
Just wishing won't make such things come true, but with
Gulf Life's many plans to bring family protection within
the reach of most every husband and father, there's little
excuse any more to be a wisher instead of an owner.
The improved preferred risk plan, as one example, combines

Ask your Gulf Life man about these many new plans. Ask-
