"Dead Boy" Stirs Up Much
Excitement At Drive-In
Folks at the St. Joe Drive-ln
Theatre got a scare Saturday
A customer, upon leavingg the
drive-in about 12:30 after a dou-
ble feature, saw a boy lying be-
side a speaker post that had been
knocked down. The customer got
out of his car to see if the boy
was hurt or asleep.
Upon examination the boy
couldn't be awakened and ap-
peared to be dead.
The customer hurriedly noti-
fied the picture machine opera-
tor, Grover Holland, who. also
examined the boy and thought
him dead. Holland hurried back
to the concession stand and
called a Comforter ambulance
and the manager of the theatre,
The ambulance arrived on the
scene and attendants started put-
ting the boy in the basket to
take himn to the hospital, when
.the boy suddenly raised up rub-
bing his eyes.
He had been asleep all the time
and the noise and confusion
finally woke him up.
He must be a sound sleeper.

Coroner Declares Marshall
Death Was Accidental
A Coroner's Jury of Gulf County
ruled that the death of R. ,H. Mar-
shall of Port St. Joe was aciden-
tal in a session at the Court House
last Wednesday afternoon.
Marshall died by a gunshot
wound of unknown origin Thurs-
day, May 31.
The City Commision Tuesday
night voted to install a radio-tele-
phone in the police prowl car to
make the police available by tele-
phone at all time.
The Commission had discussed
installing two-way radios in the
police department some time ago
but because of the expense of the
equipment and the necessity to hire
a night-time radio 'operator, the mat-
ter was shelved.
The radio-telephone system will
work through the telephone switch-
loard and will make the police car
available at all times simply by
dialing your telephone.
With only one patrolman on duty
:at night, it has worked a hardship
on the citizens by virtue of the fact
that the ofifcer must patrol and
be away from the station telephone
a good deal of the time.

system is not known- at present,

Vandals Destroy Parts
Of Power Sub-Station
The Florida Power Corporation
reported to The Star this week that
vandals are shooting at transform-
ers at their sub-station at the foot
of 10th Street.
Officials of .the firm have good
reason to believe that young boys
are doing the shooting.
They urge that parents know
what their young boys are going to
use for targets when they go out
shooting the rifle.
Local manager 'Richard Porter
said, "besides costing the Power
Company a lot of money to replace

The spoken word is given scanit attention; the printed word
I8 thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely asserts
the printed word thoroughly enovinces. The spoken woed
I- lost- the prmutd word remains.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Mystery story of the year is the sudden dis-
satisfaction of the UN command in Korea with
the Red abuse and disdain of the Panmunjom
truce, and its concern with violations that began
,.before the ink was dry on July-26, 1953.
Members of the four-nation "neutral" truce
supervisory commission have been ordered to
drop all their activities in South Korea and with-
draw into the neutral zone. The suddenly alerted
IUN Command lashed oit at the North Koreans
charging they had used the commission "as a
blind" for their build-up of arms, material and
US Major General R. G. Card, senior UN
delegate to the armistice, reported on combat
aircraft, and declared that your side now
maintains in North Korea between 400 and 500.,
' such aircraft whereas you had none in that
area at the time the armistice was signed". Gen-
o eral Gard accused the Czech and Polish commis-
sion members of obstructing efforts of the Swiss
and Swedish members to investigate truce viola-'
tions, as well as aiding the Reds in screening
their illicit activities.
Previously, the 16 UN nations that fought
in Korea rejected. Red China's bidfor a confer-
ence to talk aboutremovalof foreign forces from
Korea and reunification of that unhappy coun-
try. Evideniie of good faith, said the British note
representing the allies, was sadly lacking."
What is puzzling at this writing is why
these allies, notably the US have put up with
nearly three years of consistent violation and
r- dangerously expanding enemy strength before
getting tough about it. And .why sound off now,
a few months before Red China makes her big
pitch for UN membership?
Could it be to give Chou En-lai time enough-
to move his dangerous toys (said to include a-
toinic cannon) and his groups back into those
previously sacred staging areas in Manchuria,
and to compose pious speeches on his good
works and love of peace and human brother-
We would rather think this is a flare-up
of honest wrath, of ultimate exasperation, of fi-
nal realization that agreements with Communists
are written in water. But, watch it.

On the whole we liked Dr. Burns' "plateau"I I1

This may increase as a result of new wage-rise

Dr. Burns foresees still stiffer competition
