the mess left by the overflow. The
board's -attention was also called

THE THREAT OF EPIDEMIC
We remember reading in our history books
during our school days of the terrible plagues
and epidemics that swept the countries of the
world, taking untold numbers of human lives.
Here in Port St. Joe we have an even stronger
reminder of the diseases of old in the old ceme-
tery just South of town that contains graves of
the population of old St. Joseph, which was
virtually wiped out by an epidemic.
Today, an epidemic is virtually unheard of
except in such backward countries as China,
India and other countries of their literacy and
Even so today when an epidemic of this
type springs up medical science knows what to
do to stamp out the killer in short order..
Granted that epidemics have lost much of
their sting but, they are still dangerous in
that untold numbers are still attacked by disease
even though they can be cured.
The potential for an epidemic of typhoid
fever or maybe even worse lies ready to strike
here in Port St. Joe, which prides itself on its
cleanliness. To make matters even worse, the
epidemic threatens our children.
Perhaps some of you are shrugging your
shoulders with that "It can't happen here" atti-
tude. We are telling you on good authority that
it can happen here.
The threat lies at the Port St. oe High
School. When the new building was constructed
a few years ago, it was put on the future out-
skirts of the city. There is no city sewage ser-
vice out that far. Consequently, the High School
sanitary facilities are served by four septic tanks.
According to information we have, the tanks
are designed to take care of about 250 children.
There are presently nearly 500 children enrolled
in the Port St. Joe High School. This put an
overload on the original school and new rooms
were added. But the septic tanks are overloaded.
As a result of this overload, the tanks are
not functioning properly. Liquid refuse from
the tanks is not draining off fast enough and
is running over in the yard of the school. You
can see that this makes for a dangerous situa-
tion. The entire school yard around the gymna-
sium area has been covered repeatedly with this
overflow just since school started. It isn't a
matter of the school board not paying proper
attention to the tanks, as they were pumped out
just before school started. It is just a matter
of overload and need for more facilities.
As we understand it, more septic tanks would
be impractical. A sewage disposal plant for the
school alone would cost too much to be prac-
As we see it, the only practical solution
would be to construct city sewer lines to that
point. Although the threat didn't exist then as
it does now, back when the City Commission
was selling bonds to construct the new water
system and overhaul the sewage disposal plant,
it was planned to have enough money left over
to construct a sewer line to the hospital, the
high school, the centennial building and to the
new museum all of which are served by sep-
tic tanks. Of course at ,that time, all of the
septib tanks were working fine and there was
not too much need for haste. Now there is a
definite need for haste,
At present the water system is constructed,
and the overhaul work to the disposal system
is about 85 per cent complete. Plans by the city
were to take what money was left and construct
the, lines. The school1 board has expressed a
desire to give the city aid that it can in construct-
ing the line, which we think is a good gesture
on their part. We feel sure, that with both
agencies working together the City and the
school board that the situation will be re-
medied. In the meanwhile, we think it would
be the thing to do to innoculate all the high

There seems to be much discus-

or rather lack of teaching of phon-
ics in the public school. A strict
definition of phonics, according to
Webster, is "The science of sound,
the study and application of ele-
mentary phonetics as a method of
teaching beginners to read." And

entering the first year of school.
Parents can help their pre-school-
ers by reading -stories to them, help-
ing them find rhyming words in
nursery rhymes and playing word
games with them.
Another phase is using context
clues. This is necessary to make
phonics meaningful' and worthwhile,
for if phonics is to be useful, it

From where I sit... 4Z Joe Marsh
r Shades of Tom Sawyer!
Hack Willis had just stopped
the tractor so's he could cool off
at the pump, when a young insur-
ance salesman came up the drive.
Hack was tired-of plowing, and
needed insurance on his new barn.
But he also needed to' get that
winter rye in fast. The salesman,
an eager kid, noticed hesitation.
"I come from a farm," he said.
"Why don't you look at'these
booklets-get all the dope-and
I'll take that plow a couple of
rounds for you."
Young fellow laid off a pretty
straight furrow, too. It was al-
most dart before Hack-sitting
in the shade-was able to decide'
just what kind of policy to get.
From where I sit, to be a good
salesman-or a good citizen-it
always helps to "put yourself in
the other man's place.":' He may
have a different sort of job with
different problems... he may pre-
fer to close a deal over, say, a
friendly glass of beer while you
might prefer something else. But
both of you can co-operate if you
make it a "policy" to try.

GRACEVILLE D e m o crats.
from all parts of the far-flung Third
,Congressional District gathered
here by the thousands'under grey
'skies Tuesday to honor the man
who, has represented the district
in Congress for nearly 15 years,
Rep. Bob Sikes.
Praise for the representative, the
dean of Florida's congressional
delegation, came from all quarters
and was heaped upon him by the
occasion's principal speaker, Rep.
'Sam Rayburn of Bonham, Texas,
speaker of the House.
The Texan, sometimes called
"Mr. Democrat" because he stands
so high in the party's councils, ad-
dressed the crowd gathered in
Sportsman's Park as "the friends
of Bob Sikes." Then 'he went on to
"I have known 3,000 members of
Congress since I was first elected
to the House 43 years ago but I
have never known anyone of them
more dedicated or more energetic
in behalf of his constituents, or one
who had a deeper love for them or
a more burning desire to serve
them than my good friend Bob
The House speaker, reminding
his audience that, "on occasion I
talk politics," then launched into
an attack on the Republican voting
record in Congress, carefully re-
fraining at the same time from
any criticism of President Eisen-
Regard for President
"No man in a position of re-
sponsibility in the Democratic party
is going to take advantage of the
President while he is indisposed
as he s at present," the speaker
Rayburn said that if Democrats
in the House during the recent
session of Congress "had treated
Eisenhower the way Republicans
treated Truman we could have
crippled th program. But Demo-
crats go on principle and not on
hate. We are not haters now and
never will be."
Eighty per cent of the administra-
tion's program, he declared, has
represented "an extension or an
expansion of the laws which were
placed on the books under Demo-
.cratic control, and therefore demo-
cratic control, and therefore demo-
crats have strongly supported it."
Collins Praises Rayburn
Gov. LeRoy Collins introduced
Rayburn, praising him as "one of
the truly great Democrats of all
A round of music, gymnastic acts,
a skit, and a presentation of gifts
.to the honoree rounded out the day's
program, which ended with a giant
Sikes responded to the occasion
with a brief expression of apprec-
iation and a statement that "I am
convinced there are no people any-
where to compare with my own
friendly, wonderful folks in the
great third district of Florida."
He added, "Florida has many wise
and capable leaders. I trust that
they will shape a proper course in
which we all may join in dedicated
and united service to a greater
Florida. There have been those who
have suggested a larger responsi-
bility for me in this work and in
other work affecting Florida's fu-
ture. I am grateful that they con-
sider me worthy. I have weighed
this course carefully and prayer-
fully. Yet I must feel that here in
Northwest Florida is my first res-
ponsibility. Here we are now en-
gaged in a great undertaking which
is bright with promise and here the
work I seek to do as your congress-
Corner 4th and Williams
man is not yet completed. With
God as our strength and our guide
and with your continued confidence
we can do much. I would be reluc-
tant indeed to seek to leave the
work I now am doing in your ser-

ajerr Springs- Anti-Dive Braking -12-Volt Electrical System- Nine Engine-Drive Choices.
Let's translate these Chevrolet vic-
tories into your kind of driving.
You've got to have faster acceleration
to win on the tracks. And that means
safer passing on the highways. You've
got to have better springing and suspen-
sion. Again, safer and happier motoring
for you. You've got to have big brakes
that act fast and smooth and easy,
accurate steering. More things that make
your driving safer.
But it's more fun to try these things
put than just to talk about them. So come
in and 1et's take a ride.
