We thought John Blount had
lost his faith in the honesty of
mankind. For months his tub
hung out in front of his place of
business offering a change ser-
vice for parking meters and then
all of a sudden it disappeared.
No more change. People must
have been using it for coffee.
But, John's faith is returning. He
is turning the other cheek. The
change tub is back in position.
We went out on Dave Mad-
dox' pilot boat the other day to

the docks at one time loading
and one parked out in the bay

Florida State Board of Health
October 5, 1956 !
Mr. George W. Cooper, .Chmn. I
Board of County Commissioners
Gulf County Court House
Dear Mr. Cooper:
We were greatly surprised
and shocked to learn of the ac-1
tion of the Board of County'
'Commissioners in terminating
Mr. Trammell's services as di-
rector of the Arthropod Control
'Program in Gulf County.
It has been my observation
and the observation of other in-
dividuals in this department that
Mr. Trammell was one of the
most outstanding directors in
the State of Florida. We always
found him to be an individual
of high principles, sincere and
honest and dedicated to perform-
ing as efficient a job as he
It would seem to me that
since the State is contributing
the greatest sum of money in
the county that we should have
been advised regarding the ac-
tion that the Board was going to
take, since the law specifically
states that "the State Board of
'Health and the county shall
jointly supervise said work and
the State Board of Health shall
advisee the county regarding the
best and most effective mea-
sures to be used in bringing
about the permanent elimination
of breeding conditions caused by
arthropods." The law also gives
the State Board of Health the
power at its discretion to with-
draw any State aid provided un-
.der he law in the event it finds
the program authorized is not
being efficiently and effectively
It is our feeling that the pro-
gram cannot be efficiently' and
effectively administered under
the present administrative set
up. The person selected by the
Commissioners to replace Mr.
Trammell as director of the pro-
gram may be qualified in all re-
spects for the position; however,
it appears that the greater por-
tion of his interest and time will
be devoted to other endeavors in
one or more counties.
From information made avail-
able to think office by our dis-
_trict suparvi.-or. the Gulf County
"'cire,-,g6 newspaper, ,and other
sources, it appears that the pro-
gram was not being effectively
administered under Mr.. Tram-
mell's supervision due to laxities
administered under Mr. Tram-
mell's supervision due to laxi-
ties of subordinate personnel
in carrying out assigned duties.
When Mr. Trammell became
aware of these laxities and took
proper steps to correct the sit-
uation, the Board failed to sup-
port him 'and in turn discharged
him as director.
. It is our feeling that with the
training and experience Mr.
Trammell has had that he was
in a position to capably super-
vise this program, certainly to
the satisfaction of the State
Board of Health. It is our opin-
ion that it would have been in
the best interests of the pro-.
gram, both financially and other-
wise, for the program to have
continued under the supervision
of Mr. Trammell on a part-time
basis since he is familiar with
the program and is in the county
at all times, supervising the
work in addition to his other
We regret to advise that the
,State Board of Health will be
unable to release any additional
'State aid funds to Gulf County
until such time as the State
Board of Health is in joint agree-
ment, as specified by law, with
the satisfactory administration
and execution of the program.

NEW MODEL ON TWO WHEELS
Those who are wearing hats and we un-
derstand more men are, what with the weather
getting cooler and the style authorities recom-
mending same may take them off to the
American bicycle industry.
After being all but done in by the foreign
manufacturers whom our government felt we
must rescue at the expense of our own, .the local
industry has rallied to a token boost in a token
tariff and is making the utmost of this none-
too-generous chance of survival.
For the benefit of those who have heard
the critics lambaste our bike makers as "stodgy",
"backfard", "inefficient", "unable to face up to
competition" and worse we should like to
present some grade-school arithmetic:
Our manufacutrers pay $1.98 (and up)
per hour for labor compared to the 15 to 45 cents
per hour that foreign bike workers get. The
original tariff protection under the reciprocal
trade act, amounting to 7Y to 15 percent, was
boosted this past summer by 50 percent. In
money, this means the duty on the average
'lightweight" bicycle now is 78 cents higher
and the dury on standard models has been
raised about $1.50.
And in case you may think this increased
protection is still adequate which it is you,
may be happy to hear of the new American
challenge to the bike makers of England, Bel-
gium, France, Italy, Japan and, for all we know,
the Windward Islands. It is a new type of
bike a strictly U.S. creation designed from
the ground up for American youngsters to
take the beating they hand out and to protect
It combines the best advantages of the light-
weight and standard models. The frame of the
new bike is as light as is consistent with the
abuse Junior will give it. The tires are of brand
new design from the laboratories of our biggest
rubber companies with .patented treads that
give longer wear and more speed. They are
1 3-4" in diameter, compared with 1 1-4" on the
"lightweights". The tires roll easily and smooth-
er than those on lightweights. The new bike
has none of those fussy handbrakes, but a mar-
velous new multi-speed hub that includes an
efficient coaster brake for safer, better stopping.
As the racing drivers say: "You steer with your
hands and stop with your feet."
And Pop will be interested in knowing that
maintenance costs are much lower than on the
foreign jobs also thai when you do need spare
parts they are available practically everywhere
- right now.

bikes than any other single item has been

DOLLARS AND SENSE
In a recent debate on "Public Power vs.
Private Power" on the Facts Forum radio pro-
gram, Congressman Bruce Alger (Rep) of Texas
said: "The development of power is not the
function of Federal government Govern-
ment is to protect our rights and freedoms .
Free enterprise can not survive governmental
competition one must go, either public
power or free enterprise Let's root out these
seeds of economic destruction now threatening

businesses would net the Treasury 80 billions,
cut expenses 5 billions a year, return 2 billions in
In view of the attempts on the lives of the
Chief Executive and on various members of
the Congress that are still very sharply etched
in the memory of the nation, $1,000 seems a ra-
ther modest bail on which to hold a man who
wandered into the White House the other day
with a pistol in his brief case.
The man said he came from New York to
get a patent, that he carried the pistol for pro-
tection when travelling and forgot it was in his
brief case, and that he followed a group of
people into the Executive Mansion thinking it
was a library.
Judge John J. Mallory turned the case over
to his probation department for study before
sentencing the prisoner. "This gentleman is
either very naive or stupid. I can't believe he
is stupid," said the judge.
In any case he should be removed from
circulation whether for his own protection
of that of others.

THE EDITOR .
Port St. Joe Star
Port St. Joe, Florida
I have received, through the
Clipping Service, a copy of your-
article dated 'September 1 in regard
to the secondary road building
program in Gulf County. 'Since this
article appeared, the Board of
County Commissioners have been
furnished information in regard to
the shell which was used in Gulf
County in 1954. (edition of The
Star, Sept. 29-Ed.) I am sure you
realize this occurred at a time when
I was not o nthe Road Board. The
only thing I personally know about
this transaction is what, appears
in the official records of the Road
Department. It was clear, after
looking into these records, that
more shell had been charged to the
Gulf County secondary road buidl-
ing program than could have possi-
ibly been used on the amount of
road that was built in 1954. For
that reason, the adjustment was
made to the 'County Commission.
In so far as I know, they are all
completely satisfied. If you desire
further information on this trans-.
action or on anything concerning
roads in your area or in the State
of Florida, we will be very happy
indeed to furnish it to you.
We are proud of the very fine
road building program that is going
on in Gulf County at this time. I
believe that you realize the new
primary road will mean much to
your section of the .state. We have
finally gotten the priority worked
out now on the streets in Wewa-
hitchka and Port St. Joe and plans
are now being prepared for their

Forest Fires Reduced In
Gulf For Fiscal Year
The Gulf County Tire Records
show that the county had during
the first-quarter of 1955-1956 fiscal
year 23 fires burning 151.3 acres of
forest lands, these fires were caused
by lightning, compared with the
first quarter of the 1954-56 fiscal
year record in which the county had
26 lightning fires burning 195 acres.
Of these acres burned, 60 were not
considered forest lands. Nine in-
cendiary fires burned 1,3.6 acres of
forest lands and 800 acres of non-
forest lands. One campers fire
burned 23 acres and one unknown
fire burned ,2 acre .The unknown
fire origin could not be determined
as to cause.
County Ranger Hardy says that
there are very few of the fires
marked down as unknown as after
each fire a very close investigation
of fires are checked to determine
how it started.

Firestone De Luxe Champions Give You the Extra Non-
Skid Protection You Need on Wet, Slippery Pavements
There's no tube to pinch or
explode!-'Inside this tire there's
a Safety-Liner, which slows air
loss, and reinforces the tire in
the event it should be injured
. .. instead of a dangerous
blowout you get a harmless
slow leak. You drive relaxed,
with greater peace of mind.
If a nail, or any sharp object
should penetrate this tire, the
Safety-Liner grips it and slews
the air loss .. no sudden flat
tires, no need to change flats
on the road, instead the
Firestone De Luxe Champion
Tubeless enables you to drive
to the nearest service station,
SKID PROTECTION... Newly
designed silent tread has 70%

QUIETER RUNNING .
Won't squeal even on sharpest
turns, No hum or whine be-
cause ttead elements overlap
to prevent rhythmic vibration. ,
Firestone's new cord treating
factory combines the famous
Firestone Gum-Dipping process
with Safety-Tensioning, a new
process which.takes the stretch
out of tire cords, prevents
dangerous tread cracking. The
result is greater blowout pro*
tection and longer tire life,
