Chofur? What's a .chofur?
That's what we asked a fellow
up in Blountstown Friday night.
We were up there' running up
and down the side-lines at the
football game trying to get a pic- I
ture or two and this Blountstown
fan kept, heckling us about Port
St. Joe people being "Chofur" I
eaters everytime we would get
We listened and tried and tried
to identify that food (apparent-
ly) he was associating us and
our neighbors with. Never had
seen any (that we knew of).
So finally we puThed down
that small still voice that kept
saying "you're a sucker if you
ask what it is". We always were
a sucker that way.. We always
bite on a riddle or a joke be-
cause we honestly want to know
the answer, even at the expense
of being the "sucker" that "bit". T
Finally we took all we could a
and sidled up t6 this fellow and
said, "Mister, just what is a "'char
"Boy", he says, "you haven t
lived in St. Joe very long 'cause
that's all those crackers eat dow n
there at least when I was.
down there 35 years ago."
"Yeah, but what is it," we ask-
He eyed us with his good eye
and shifted his chaw and iveC
us a disdainful look and spat out
exasperatedly, "A chofur is tt- c
lowest fish that swimns and all
St. Joe crackers live on chofurs."
Well, there we had the an-
swer and we knew what to
answer back too.
We stiffened up our back.
pushed out our chest and sa-
luted thice and said. 'Friend,
that just gt.,fs t.-shi vi,' lihow
much. better off we' ar than
you." We let him have it with
both barrels. "Folks down in
St. Joe now eat so high on the
hog and the cow that the have
forgotten just what a "chofur"
is." We promised to run this and
see if there was anybody in Port
St. Joe that remembers a "clho-

day, call aFter dinner because we

Plans are progressing nicely!
and rapidly now for the dedica-

Plans are to have the dedkica-

Hart Makes Motion
Commissioner Parker Hart made
a motion, 'which carried unani-
mously, to attach a referendum to
the ballot in the coming primary
next spring. The referendum will
let the public decide whether or
not they wish to continue the mos-
quito control program in the coun-
ty. The program was started a'bovt
four years ago 'by the city of Port
St. Joe and was taken up by the
county with state matching funds
a year later.

The iSt. Joe Sharks 'hammered
out a 7-6 victory over a 'big and-
powerful Blountstown team last
Friday night in Blountstpwn. The
Tigers, who have only been scored
on by one other team this season,
.proved to'be a tough customer for
the. free scoring Sharks.
Bloutntshl.owi tookk the opening
kick-off on their' 30-yard line'and
didn't give up the'ball until they
scored on a short pass: over center.
Their extra point attempt failed
and that proved to be the decisive
factor in the Sharks victory.
The Sharks, plagued with fum-
bles, lost the kilok-off to the Tigers
'on a short kick, that bounced off a
ISt. Joe lineman. The Sharks de-
fense tightened up at this point and
caused the Tigers to punt. The
Sharks took over -on their 47 where
St. Joe's running combo of Taylor,
Wilder and Munn joined forces to
carry the ball to the Tiger one foot
line where quarterback Walter Wil-
der sneaked over for the score. Full-
back Wayne Taylor applied the ma-
gic toe for the extra point and the
game was over as far as scoring
The. next three quarters saw 'both
teams put on a terrific defensive
and offensive show. The Sharks
were on their way several times (but
fumbles killed their hopes each
time. The Sharks were inside the
Tiger five-yard, line twice 'but lost
t.he ball both tcnies ou ft'ubles The
Tigertis got' t. 'the-Sharks ten-yard
line once. but. were held for downs
and never got past the 40 after that
The .Sharks defense played' a
terrific --game during the second
half, holding the Tigers to but 46
yards gained during that period.'
Charlie Smith and Billy Johnson
were the most consistent perform-
ers in the defensive unit.
'Shark fullback, Wayne Taylor
was the offensive spark for the
Sharks, supplying the game win-
ning extra point and stomping out
92 yards against the stubborn Ti-
ger defense. Halfback Bert Munn
rap .second in yardage gained with
49 yards. Walter Wilder supplied
the six pointed plus 39 yards gained
and, completed three of five pass
attempts for 25 yards. Edward
Smith did some good running from
the halfback position.

ity, or It reduced the protection
they acquired through civilian work
before entering service.
In' 1946, Congress took action to
partly remedy this condition. An
amendment to the Social 'Security
Law was passed', providing that a
veteran would be considered insur-
ed under social security itf he died
within three years 'after being dis-
charged. That helped to protect the
family of a veteran who died before
he had a chance to build up his so-
cial security, Ibut it didn't help those
who died in service, or who lived
more than three years after dis-
Later amendments broadened the
social security protection for ser-
vicemen and women. In 1950, ?Con-
gress ,provided that active service
in World War y I (defined as !Sep-
temiber 15. 1940, to July 24, 1947)
would generally count toward social
security. In effect ,the veteran re-
ceived the akme coverage as if he
had.worked in a civilian jolb under
social security at the rate of $160
a month for the. period of active
In 1952, Congress extended the
period of social security coverage
to June 30, 1955. And the 1954 Con-
gress again extended the deadline,
this time to April 1956.
As a result, most veterans who
had active duty anytime between
September 1940 and April 1956, will
be given social security credits for
each month of service. The service
credits cannot be given, however, if
the same period of service is used
by another government agency
other than the Veterans Adminis-
tration, in computing a monthly
benefit. These credits are not added
to the individual's social security
account until an application is
made for either retirement or death
benefits under social security.

If you've come to think of driving as just routine,
it's high time you tried the tremendous "go" of this
masterful new, monarch of the highway.
Here's a car with such exhilarating drive-eager
oil-smooth response and safe, secure handling-that
even monotonous home-to-work driving becomes
your finest hour!
And out on the open highway, the fabulous '56
Pontiac comes alive with all the eager, heads-up alerl-
ness of a thoroughbred.
Its blazing 227-h.p. Strato-Streak V-8, coupled with
silken smooth Strato-Flight Hydra-Matic, thrives on
challenges. The hill you see looming up virtually
disappears before your eyes.
And at anry legal speed, there's such a re,-,_ of
power- that your engine literally -Iafs- ready at a toe-
touch' to spring into the.most.. thrilling, satisfying
action that ever shortened a country mile.
Of course, this is only a hint. of what's awaiting
you. The difference in performance in driving,
smoothness, ride and control-is so terrific that .it
can only be appreciated atvthe wheel.
So come in and take charge of one of these glamorous
new beauties, yourself.-.Ghoose -your. own, test',-route
