Testimony Declares That Merger of FEC

ning blow," 'Etheridge said.
He continued that freight reve-
nue received by SAL from its inter-
change with the FEC in 19515 was
$4,352,46,6, "and we estimate that
approximately three-fourths of this
amount or in excess of $3,000,000
will be lost in the event the East
Coast is acquired by the Coast

ration of the Jacksonville-Miami would be kept open in case of a
Asked the grounds for SAL's op-
position, Etheridge said:
"The interchange of freight be-
tween the Seaboard and the Flor-
ida East Coast at four junctions
(Jacksonville, West Palm Beach,
Marcy( Miami) is quite substantial
and the Seaboard enjoys attractive
revenue from such interchange.
"This is also true of the Macen,
Dublin and Savannah Railroad, a
wholly owned subsidiary of the Sea-
board operating 92 miles between
Vidalia and Macon, Ga., and serving
a, an overhead line in the handling
of a substantial amount of freight
which originates on or is destined
to points on the Florida East Coast
"We are convinced that much of
the traffic would be los: to the
Seaboard and the MD&S if the ap-
plication were granted and both
lines would be severely damaged
"Additionally, we feel that the
public interest would not be better
served by such acquisition but, on
the contrary, would be adversely
Etheridge testified that the in-
terchange with the FEC at the four
points has produced freight reve-
nue for Seaboard over a nine-year
period in excess of 31 million dol-

it had not been possible to set
down the benefits but that reports

For Sewer Lines
Earl Tom Pridgeon and ROWOe

Commission Tuesday night request-
ing that the city extend a sewer

stated that they wanted to star,.

street and needed water and sew-
A small group of citizens Were
also on hand, presumably to Bro-

M ayur used the opportunity to an-
swer both questions at one time.
The Mayor explained that the
City water and sewer finances wit'e
such at this time that it would be
impo&ible to construct all the seW-
er lines requested for new con-
struction so the city would not un-
dertake to construct any until all
could be taken care of.
The Mayor explained that such
construction as this could only be
financed by water and sewer reve-
nues, and since bonds had been
floated against the utilities; they
('the bonds) bad to be met before
any new construction could be con-
The Mayor explained that the
City was now struggling to make
the bond payments. In order to do
this, he explained, the rates were
raised but the raise would only
bring in five cents per thousand
gallons above the old city rate.
Upon discovering the sad state
of the water and sewer finances, in
the month of March, he told the
group, a study was made and it
was found that about 40 percent of
the water being purchased by the
City was being lost before it was
sold to the customers. An analysis
as to the cause of this showed sev-
eral leaks, several places without
meters, and, for the most part, the
fault was found to be with worn-
When the cause was found, an im-
mediate program was put into force
to repair all the meters that were
not working at all. In connection
with this, 50 meters at a time are
being removed at a time and over-
hauled and put back into operation.
This program will go on until every
meter in the city is overhauled.
A representative from a meter
manufacturer told the City that all'
meters should be overhauled at
least every seven years and that
the present city meters were noL
measuring all the water going
The repair of meters is causing
a drop in water loss and a hike in

City Will Reap Pct.
Of Gross Income
Voters of Port St. Joe will go to
the polls Tuesday in a freeholders
election -to decide whether or not
the City of Port St. Joe will enter
into a new 30-year franchise with
the Florida Power Company.
Although the present franchise is
not up until 1960, the City is desir-
ous of renewing the franchise for
certain benefits that the Power
Company is offering with new fran-
chises that .the city does not get
under its old franchise.
The added benefits to the City
with a new franchise will be a re-
fund to the city in the way of taxes
of two per cent of the Power Com-
pany's revenues for the first ten
years of the franchise. The City
will receive three percent of the
income for the second ten years
of the franchise and four per cent
for the remaining ten years of
the 30 year franchise.
The Power Company will not be
able to raise its rate to pay the
benefits to the City, since it./will
be termed as,a tax and not as an
expense of f.idlities which deter-
mines the rItes. Tho rates are sF!

Power Company officials pointed
out to the City Commission that
the payments to the City will
mean very little out of the Com-
pany's pocket since the tax paid
to the city will be deductible from
taxes to the national government.
An added benefit to the city will
be a discount of about 30 per cent
on power used by the City itself,
making a further saving' in the
operation of city affairs.
The election will be held at the

Last fall, Chevrolet broke the
Pikes Peak record in history-
making pre-production test
Chevrolet takes first, second and four of the top six places!
Beats its own stock car record by a full minute and 16 seconds!
Running against the hottest competition in the land,
Chevrolet won the Pikes Peak climb.
This is unquestionable proof of Chevrolet's supreme
roadability-the accuracy of Ball-Race steering, the
solidity of outrigger rear springs, the traction of
balanced weight distribution.
There is no greater test of a car's road safety
qualities than the Pikes Peak climb. Try it yourself,
in the car that's won the "crown" twice in a row!
