Taken By Death
The host of friends and relatives
of Port St. Joe and surrounding
communities were saddened Sun-
day by the death of Max Kilbourn,
owner and operator of Port iSt. Joe's
oldest industry, the iSt. Joe Ice
Company. Mr. Kilbourn, a pioneer
in the development of the ice in-
dustry began his operations in this
business in Carrabelle in 1899, com-
ing to Port St. Joe in 1919. His first
plant in St. Joe was located on the
present site of the S. Joe Paper
Company's huge paper mill. Mr. Kil-
bourn enjoyed the distinction of
having been in the ice business
longer than any citizen in the
State of Florida.
Max Kilbourn, son of George Nor.
ton and Harriet Eliza ('Swain) Kil-
bourn was born in Oxfc. d, Michi-
gap, December 20, 1873. At the age
of ten he came with his father and
family to Florida first settling in
Quincy aid two years later in Car-
rabelle. Max Kilbourn attended the
meager public schools that the com-
munity afforded in that early date
and later attended the University
of the South at Sewannee, Tennes-
see: Max, Kilboura also attended
and graduated iiui 'he Georgia
Normal Business College located
at Abbeville, Georgia and was val-
dictorian of his class.
Max Kilbourn was united in mar-
riage June 20, 1900 to Miss Eda
Pickett, daughter of James Rey-
nolds and Francis Josephine (Yent)
Pickett. This couple celebrated
their golden wedding anniversary
in 1950 at the home of their daugh-
ter, Mrs. Charles A. Brown., At the
time of Mr. Kilbourn's death their
happy marriage had lasted for
more than 55 years.
Mr. Kilbourn was a life-long mem-
ber of the Episcopal Church and
his life bore the marks of a true
Christian. He was kind. courteous
and charitable in all his business
and -personal relations with the
general public and as a family man,
father and grandfather he stood
without a peer.
'Mr. Kilbourn is survived by his
wife, Mrs. Eda Pickett Kilbourn,
two sons; Lafayette Yent Kilibourn
and James Pickett Kilbourn; one
daughter, Mrs. Charles A. Brown,
all of Port iSt. Joe; one sister, Mrs.
Ethel Kilbourn Wakefield of Quin-
cy; ten grandchildren and four
great-grandchildren, and also a
large number of neices and neph-
ews. He was preceded in death by
a brother, Lynn Kilbourn in 1,950
and also by two children who died
in early childhood, Lynn and Maxie.
Funeral services were held Tues-
day afternoon at 3:00 p.m. at the
St. James' Episcopal Church with
the Rev. Tom Miller officiating.

He Shot At It
But He Missed
(Writ by hand by The Boys At
The Coffee Shop)
G. W. Brodnax has been brag-
ging to us about how he can
catch a black fish, pull him out
of the water and shoot him with
his little old .22 pistol. He never
misses, says Broad.
He has now missed.
Broad was fishing the other
day and left his glasses at the
landing and started catching
black fish. He pulled one in and
performed the duties with his
pistol. About that time he shift-
ed his position. Broad, minus his
glasses, let out a whop and shot
again. That crazy pistol ball went
right through the meaty part of
the calf of his leg and shot a hole
In the bottom of his best boat.
Broad, upon realizing that he
had missed a black fish, started
his boat and raced for the landing'
with the horses talking. Even
with a hole in the back of the
boat he went all the way to the
landing and didn't pick up a drop
of water (according to Broad).
,He has never been without
his glasses since and probably
will never go black fishing again

Saints Shaping Up To
Begin Season May 6
With less than a month to go be-
fore the regular season starts, the
looks of the team for the St. Joe
Saints at this stage presents a
team that will be as good as any
that has been fielded around these
parts in several years. Manager

petition is getting mighty hot for

tition is keen due to the following
men 'practicing daily, manager
Hamm, Bill Fleming, Hubert Miller,
Harry Dowden, W. J. Herring, Leo-
nard Belin, Cliff Harper, Ronald

Hudson, Tommy Pridgeon, Fred
Langley, Warring Murdock, Ed Mc-
Farland, iClaxton Vause, Golden

past performances to witness some
good ball' this year. These men are
putting in many hours of their time
so baseball can be seen here and
they deserve all the support of the
local people that can be mustered.

The Women, of the Presbyterian
'Church met Monday evening at the
First Presbyterian Church for their
regular meeting of the month.
Mrs. William Iverson gave the
devotional taken from J. B. Phil-
lip's "Instruction to New Churches".
She used as her topic, "Mirror, of
God's Word". As we look into a
mirror to improve our physical
selves, so to look into God's mir-
ror to improve our spiritual self,
she said. God so loved the world
that He gave His only son (John
3:16) how much more we should
love each other and work together
in harmony in this world.
During the business, it was an-
nounced that Family Night supper
for women and men will be held
on April 18.
An open discussion of Women's
church attendance was led by Mrs.

LET'S THINK TWICE BEFORE TRADING
STATESMANSHIP FOR SHOWMANSHIP
From the Washington County News
Two years ago, the Washington County
.News, almost alone among the newspapers of
Northwest Florida, endorsed the candidacy of
LeRoy Collins of Tallahassee for governor. It
felt compelled to take a choice between sound
government or mis-government. The people of
Florida are now called upon to choose again -
this time between statesmanship and showman-
Having observed Florida's recent four-year
era of showmanship, the News aligns itself once
more on the side of sound government and
statesmanship. This is no time for trading
statesmanship for showmanship.
Collins' endorsement by the News in 1954
was almost unprecedented. Seldom in the long
history of the newspaper had it endorsed an
Individual candidate for public office.
"It is not often that one above all the others
is so outstanding as to merit such endorsement."
the News explained. "We believe Sen. LeRoy
Collins to be such a man. We commend him
to our readers and invite them to weigh his re-
cord and his training, his frankness and his sin-
cerity before making their choice."
That confidence, it is now evident, was
well-founded. In the 15 months he has been
governor, he has given Florida a government of
inmtegrity, a government dedicated to progress,
xji'ne reflecting stability and one free of scandal.
'H has already earned recognition far beyond the
Jborders of Florida as one of the nation's leading
Ai~ Now, for-the first time in history, Floridians
hive a chance to Tre-elect a governor whose
statesmanship has been so well demonstrated.
His brief administration has been established on
a foundation of high ideals, and it is operating
smoothly. The News believes it shares the con-
viction of most Floridians that LeRoy Collins
should be given a mandate to continue the effi-
cient, economical and progressive government
tliAs state has enjoyed for the past 15 months.
It is with that conviction that the News
once again endorses the candidacy of LeRoy
Collins for governor The News is convinced
that this is no time to trade statesmanship for

QUetN of t[e Hardtops/
Pontiac's Regal Catalinas
Most Glamorous Styling
in Hardtop History
kV This one got our special atten-
tion-the magnificent Star Chief 4-
Door Catalina, pride and joy of the
Pontiac hardtop family!
The most exciting Catalina ever
built (and remember, Pontiac intro-
duced Catalina design), Pontiac's
Star Chief hardtops reflect the best
efforts of stylists given a free hand to
be lavish with luxury. And generous
they were! Here are soft, hand-buffed
top-grain leather, rich nylon, deep-
pile carpeting, all perfectly matched
with exterior colors. Here's smartness
and ,luxury you won't find in any
other car at any price!
Drive it and find something else you
won't get in any other car: the com-
bination of 227-horsepower Strato-
Streak V-8 and Strato-Flight Hydra-
Matic* that leaves all other kinds of
power in your wake!
By now you know this is just what
you've wanted-and you'll be happy
to know there's nothing to keep you
from having it!
Your Pontiac dealer can set you
straight on this dream car's modest
cost-and also show you Pontiac's
three complete lines of two- and four-
door Catalinas in three price ranges.
One is bound to be yours!
