We have fish at our house.
It's not the eating kind of fish
in the knife and fork sense but
they are the eating kind of fish
in.the "you feed 'em" sense.
At first we had just one fish:
A small fish at that. But to top
it all off, this fish in particular,
was an expectant mother when
it moved into the Ramsey house-
hold over on Marvin Avenue.
This fish is a guppie. It lays
little fish all ready to swim and
eat. The fish is supposed
to give birth to about a hundred
at a time and then eat all
she can get her mouth on.
You can see right there what
kind of a state our household
has been in. Expecting any min-
ute to have our fish give birth
to young and at the same spot
the blessed event in time to
keep the mother fish from lov-
ingly gobbling up her young. It
has been quite some adventure.
Tuesday morning the little
fish started putting in their ap-
pearance. About 20 showed up
and our fish got called every-
thing from lazy to a coward for
producing such a puny number
of offspring. "Mama" was sep-
arated from her young to give
them a chance to grow uninhib-
ited by the frightening thought
that mama wanted to make a
square meal out of them. In a
few.more minutes the mama fish
produced some more fish on
which she managed to dine off
We now have a mama fish
and a bowl-of little dots, lovingly
called "little fish" separated
SPort St. Joe certainly gdes to
e-xtremes. Ove'r the Fourth of.
July holiday, tlicit were twivO
traffic deaths and numerous in-
juries to mar the days of play.
Over the past week end while
all over the nation a redt'd high
was being reached in automobile
deaths, not even a scratched fen-
der was reported.
That is good.
While the first half of the year
brought abot.sevef-deaths in
Gulf County by automobiles,
'the second half seems to be on
"-the way tQj yking a good record.
It seems like almost everyone
went fishing on Labor Day. Up
on the canal it was almost nee-
essary to call out the high sheriff
from Wewahitchka to direct the
Aquatic traffic. And it was just
as bad in other parts of the!
county. While we were not brave
enough to venture out toward
the beach, we have an idea that
they were packed also.
Witnessed a session of the
Sharks at practice last Thursday
evening. Boy those boys do pack
a wallop when they hit one an-
other. If they live through the

YOU BROUGHT IT ON YOURSELVES
Hooray for the people of Wewahitchka.
They voted in themselves a Health Clinic. Af-
ter a turnout at the polls like they perpetrated,
we say they deserve their health clinic. Cer-
tainly the people of Port St. Joe didn't care one
way or the other which way the question went
- or so it would seem by the vote turn-out.
Preachers say that a very large percent of the
people stay at home from church on Sunday.
If the people of Port St. Joe shunned the church
like they shunned the polls it would be a sad
This matter of not voting is getting serious.
There are over 1200 registered voters in the City
of Port St. Joe. If three-fourths, or eight hun-
dred, show up at the polls at an election, it is
considered as a big vdte. -This is shameful.
Every election held in the City of Port St. Joe
should poll at least 1100 votes. It is only laziness
and apathy on the part of the public that such
a situation exists. And whe bellows loudest at
election outcomes? Those who didn't even
voted. We voted at the city hall at 1:00 p.m.
last Tuesday and were number 22 in a precinct
that has nearly 400 registered voters. Nearly as
many in this one precinct alone as in all of
Wewahitchka yet the County seat town out-
polled us. And we must foot the bill on top
of losing the question.
"Oh no this project was free of taxes".
. Yes sir, it was on the outside. As we pointed
out in this newspaper, the county's share of the
money to put into' the health palaces was to
come from the county's share of the race track
funds. We stated numerous times that $1,000
would be taken from both Port St. Joe and We-
wahitchka each year and $4,000 each from the
Board of County Commissioners and the Gulf
County School Board. If you take this money
from these agencies what's going to replace it
so that the bureaus can operate? Taxes! Who
is going to pay the taxes? You and me!
Port St. Joe pays 90 percent of all taxes
in Gulf County. Figure out for yourself where
you live, then figure out who has to pay for the
Health Clinics and then go right ahead and
kick yourself on the back of your lap for not
casting the ballot that, could have saved you
Had you voted, we could have saved money.
Do you realize that the museum that the State
has built at Constitution Park cost only $22,000.?
Go by and take a look at it and just imagine how
much Health Clinic you will have to sit idle.
You people of Port St. Joe have 'a chance
to redeem yourselves next Tuesday. This is
election day in the city to select two members
of the City Council and a Mayor-Commissioner.
The Council race is hot. You should vote one
way the way you think but above all you
should vote. It is a vital election as all elections
are vital. You are picking your city's leaders
for two years. Think and vote your convictions
and you will be surprised how perfect every-
thing will run if you will just vote your convic-

Getting out of a car on the left or traffic side is always hazardous,
especially after dark, but the danger can be greatly reduced by attaci-
ing a strip of "Scotchlite" reflective safety tape along the inner edge of
the car door. When the door is opened, the safety tape will pick up and
brightly reflect the lights o an approaching car, making the extreme
left hand edge of the stopped car visible to the approaching driver at
distances up to one-quarter mile.

What the human frame, even
weakened by tuberculosis, has been
able to rise above is constantly
amazing. Even more amazing, per-
haps, is the persistence with which
people have sought a "sure cure"
for tuberculosis. A tremendous
amount of research-both genuinely
scientific and strictly amateur-
has gone into this problem. And
still it is unsolved'.
'Recently a farmer in Germany

cure. One of his .pigs had what

farmer has offered his discovery

has stopped laughing at the an-

real value. No doubt, the farmer's
nettles, too, will be scientifically
tested to find out whether they
have any real effect on tuberculo-
