Lions Club Planning
I For Womanless Wedding
The Star has been informed that
in the very near future the Lions
Club of Port St. Joe will invite you
to an old-fashioned "Womrnanless
Y Wedding". All proceeds from this
Y wedding will go towards putting up
an electric scoreboard on the foot-

TO THE CITIZENS OF PORT ST. JOE .
Your City Commissioners heie a" t thought
and a tremendous amount of time anid i^ connection
with the operation of your Munic.pal d.*.p1
It has been determined that atpprit "''1y 12 .iaddi- .
Stional rooms are needed at this intitui O.ic-h would
provide at least six private rooms. -
Your City Commission will .ittemlip..,; Federal
assistance on this expansion program and -w 1 ieve that
such assistance can be had and will certaitiilyv i. ilierntil
toward that end.-
It is the intention of the City Corinmhs.r tb separate
entirely the dining room and the kitchen froii.T bo spit.l
building so as to eliminate noise and ,-dors lfir m i.n
hospital building. '
Your hospital has no endowment and iy.N-cscs iTn
connection .with the operation has been taken care of by
taxes on the business houses and other ad valorem tax on
property. Practically 95% of the homes in Port St. Joe are
free of taxation by the laws of the State.
A goodly number of' the indigent persons .entering
the hospital are citizens of Port St. Joe while quite a few are
from other than the City of Port St. Joe but mostly from
Gulf County. Th ibseing. the case, it is the intention of
your City Commissioners to appeal to the County Commis-
sioners of Gulf County to make an annual contribution to-
ward the operation of this institution for the care of such
indigent or other people who are wards of Gulf County,
this, of course, will go to assist and help make up any losses
that might be sustained on account of the care for those who
are unable to pay their obligations.
Since the building of the hospital some 15 years ago,
very little if any improvements have been made and it is
in need of considerable repairs and equipment to bring
it u pto a modern hospital that you would be proud of.
Certainly the citizens of this community pay a utility
tax on gas, telephone and light bills and a portion of this
tax goes toward the paying off of the obligation on the City
Hall (which we are sure you are proud of). Some small
portion of it goes to paying for fire protection, such as wa-
ter hydrants, volunteer fire department and the cost thereof,
which is for the protection of our homes.
The City Commission has the very highest type person-
nel at the hospital in the super isor% capacity, anaesthe-
List, technician and laboratory, ts well as thet.,. rw s and
their assistants. Please bear in mind that the supervisory
forces of this institution are on duty at least 24 hours per
day, or at least on call rcg_-.rdle.- of the hour or time of
need.- These people make thefi~elves available for your
protection be it 8:00 in the morning or 4:30 in the morn-
ing, or any other time, and it behooves each of us to give
these people the very best that we can and in so doing we
are giving aid and assistance to the people of the community.
We sincerely trust and hope that you will lend your,
vote toward this improvement, which is sorely needed, come
Tuesday, March 27 by voting for the utility taxi It cannot,
be -o'\ er much on any one of us and for the good that
will ihure to the City of Port St. Joe it seems that, no one
should hesitate to approve and vote for this tax, and we
sincerely trust that you will.
We also wait to point out that this tax ordinance is
automatically taken off the books when the expansion to the
hospital, which will amount to about $50,000 has been paid

moded electoral college system of choosing our
president by which the big cities have en-
joyed inordinate political power and the poten-
St'al for upsetting the will of a national majority.
Senate sponsors of the reform are now

sary two-thirds majority in both houses and
ratification by 368or more" of the states.
Under the Daniel-Kefauver plan, each of
the three leading candidates for President would
receive a share of the state's electoral vote exact-
ly proportional to his portion of the popular

Now we can show you these great new GMC's
that are further than ever. ahead of all others.
Their advances not only clinch power supremacy
-but reach into fields still unexplored by other
,For example, GMC's Road Shock Damper
.Suspension*-plus a unique new stabilizer-pro-
duces in half-ton models a ride comparable to the
.finest passenger car.
An optional new fast-ratio cruising axle in light-
duty GMC's gives you an overdrive's pace And
economy without its cost.
Sharply increased engine displacement in both sixes
and V8's gives you a power family unsurpassed wi
the. light-duty field. Specifically, we offer 14.4%
GREATER displacement on 6-cylinder models,
16.2% on V8's than our nearest competitors. And
GMC V8's, mind you, match the shortest stroke
ratios in the truck industry.
Styling is well into the future-panoramic wind-
shield, to sand-tight tail gate. Tubeless tires, of
course. And a 12-volt electrical system is standard.
These are some of the strides presented in new
1956 Blue Chip trucks we now
