what has happened to $57,000.00
worth of shells that they didn't
know had been sold to the county
in the first place.
As you know, about four weeks
ago, the Commissioners were as-
tounded and abashed that this
county had had $57,000.00 of its
secondary road fund money taken
back by -the State for shells used
in the county by road building.
Naturally with this kind of an
expenditure for shells alone the
Commissioners invited several of
the Road Board members down to
find out just what happened. The
SRD members reported to the
County Board that the $57,000.00
had been used up in shell base for
roads which were not included in
contracts let. Taking into consid-
eration that the County hadn't re-
ceived much more than that amount
in secondary roads an accounting
was asked of the S'RD for the shell
Last week the accounting arrived
and quite a different light has
been thrown on the picture. Gulf
County wound up the affair by be-
ing $38,000.00 richer in secondary
A quick reappraisal of the "shell
fund" by the SRD put the Gulf
County figure from $57,000 down
to $34,396.20. Upon closer examin-
ation the fund was reduced fur-
ther and finally set at $19,259.97.

TO ADVERTISERS-In case of error or omissions in adver-
tisements, the publishers do not hold themselves liable for

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word
is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely asserts;
the printed word thoroughly enovinces. The spoken word
is lost- the printed word remains.
In twenty-one years, 1976, Americans will
be celebrating the bicentennial of their freedom
and of the Constitution that has protected it
through two centuries. Today's new-born in-
fants will be casting their first votes, and young-
sters now beginning school will doubtless be
having children of their own who can expect
to live 100 years
And, in case you can't wait to find out what
life will be like at that time, there will be a
television preview on Sunday, October 9. En-
titled simply "1976", the show will be seen by
most of the nation from 4:30 to 5:30 New York
time. It will be carried by approximately 140
stations of the NBC network, so that every set
in the nation should be able to tune it in.
The show will mark the inauguration of the
eighth annual Oil Progress Week, which begins
on that date and runs through the 15th, and
will be the first time the oil industry has em-
ployed television in this connection. "1976"
will be what you might call an advance docu-
mentary, since there will be no fiction, no guess-
work, no blue-sky about the marvels to be pre-
sented. Every aspect of the production will be
based on new developments now in the planning

And so much that's good in the

That it doesn't behoove any of us
To make fun of the rest of us.

based on authoritative scientific study. ,
We are told, for instance, that winter cloth-
ing will be lighter, but warmer, and well be
wearing temperature-regulating garments in
summer; rooms will be lighted by luminous
paint and cleaned and dusted electronically. TV
will be three-dimensional, in full color, and pro-
jected from a panel built into the living room
wall. Tractors will go out and plow by them-
selves. Factories will operate by automation,
yet employment will be the highest the nation
has known which will be a good thing, since
our population will be 207 million. And we
will require nearly thirteen million barrels of oil
a day for half a million synthetic products in
addition to fuels and lubricants.
Considering that in 1957, only two years
hence, we shall have at least one, perhaps sev-
eral man-made satellites revolving furiously
around the earth and sending back radio re-
ports on how it is up there, it is easy to believe
that by 1976 humans will be travelling in rocket
ships at 2,500 mph. But, we're not telling where
they are going in such a hurry. You'll have to
see "1976" to find out. And if your youngsters
see it, they will be the first in the long history
of mankind to know where they are going!
DON'T BLOW YOUR TOP
Millions of motorists will agree with the
opinion aired at the annual meeting of the Amer-
ican Automobile Association, that the slowpoke
driver is more deadly than the speeder, and
that there should be anti-dawdling laws.
But, the problem is not that simple. We
can't deny the highways to the man whose car
has 40 hp rather than upwards of 200. Nor
are we legally equipped to revoke the drivers'
licenses of the decrepit, the timid, the inade-
quately trained until after they've gotten
into trouble. And if you hurry these people up,
it could be worse.
It will help a lot to be more fussy in grant-
ing licenses and renewals. But us good driv-
ers will still have to exercise some self-control
- and courtesy.

lasses have plenty of that. Their "little red schoolhouse" is likely
to be white, but like American youngsters, they can look forward
to a good education-even though they live in a tiny village. The
Turks believe in "education for democracy." That's why thhy have
a public school system that is free from kindergarten through
college. Determined to raise the educational level of the country
even further, they have more than doubled the allotment for
education in the last five years. When the school bells ring this
year, almost two million children will answer them-a record
number for Turkey.

forty to seventy thousand burns oc-
cur every year. Because of vas im-
provements in treating the initial
shock of a *severe 'burn, 50 to 60
per cent of badly burned children
now survive, but many survive to
face months of pain and perhaps
even a lifetime of disability. Won-
ders are being done with skin graft-
ing, but at best- it's only a poor
substitute for normal skin.
A thirty-year survey made in one
hospital showed that ignited cloth-
ing was the most frequent cause
of severe burns of children. The
open fireplace was the usual source
of trouble, less often a trash fire
or playing with matches. Most of
these children were three to six
years old and had to spend over
seven months in the hospital. Other
important causes of children's burns
were direct contact with hot stoves,
bot ashes, or flames, gasoline or
kerosene ,and hot liquids. Inquisi-
tive two and three year olds ac-
counted for most of the scald cases
by overturning pots of boiling wa-
ter from the stove or falling into
tubs of hot water. Early adojes-
cents seemed to have the most
trouble from careless handling of
Perhaps the darkest side of this
picture is the fact that almost
every one of these "accidents" was
unnecessary. We all know that
open fireplaces should have fire-
screens; that children should never

Little cakes always have party manners. Whether you serve Banana Nut Cake
at home, or pack them in lunches, they will add a cheery note.
BANANA NUT CAKES
Next time, you're in the mood
to bake a sweet treat, make
Banana Nut Cakes. You'll like
the easy way the ingredients go
together, as well as the speedy
way the cakes disappear.
Let the recipe do double duty.
Pack Banana Nut Cakes for
school lunches. Serve them at
home, too. You'll will find they
travel best in the lunchbox if
baked in the paper liners.
A big time-saving feature of
the recipe is the use of self-ris-
ing flour. It already contains
baking powder and salt in the
correct proportions. So it isn't
necessary to measure those two
ingredients for the recipe. This
factor gives you greater assur-
ance of a perfect product every
The bananas in the recipe
provide a moist, flavorful qual-
ity. That's one more good rea-
son the cupcakes are especially
well-suited to lunchbox use.
