ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY

By the time you read this, the big
circus will have gotten under full
sail in Chicago. With both Steven-
son and Harriman claiming they
have the nomination "sewed up",
it will be interesting to see who
rips out the seams.

On not so wide a scale, but
certainly of just s much impor-
tance to the people of this com-
munity, is the upcoming Munici-
pal election to choose two new
councilmen for the City's busi-
ness. It is an important choice
and one that should be weighed
thoroughly.

When you go to the polls on
Tuesday, September 11 we would
urge you to take into consideration
one important thing. ,
This City is suffering from grow-
ing pains in the worst way.
Whether you realize it or not,
the city has just about used up the
existing sewer and water lines in
this community. As short a period
as five years ago, it would be deem-
ed silly to even think that the city
would, of necessity, be forced to
spread beyond 16th Street or far-
ther East than Garrison Avenue. To
most minds, these streets were the
city limits.
But this has come to pass. At a
time when prices are the highest
they have ever been in history, it
is becoming necessary to use these
lots in this area. Building has al-
ready taken place in sections not
now served by water and sewer-
especially in the colored section of
town. Some relief must come. But
the expansion to this areas will
cost an estimated three-quarters of
a million dollars. This is several
times over what the original sewer
system, plant and water system
cost. Even in the pr-osperity of to-
day, this is a lot of money.
Where will it come from?
'If we have these services in all
the needed locations, it will' come
from you and I.

face, but with the event of the pro-
viding of these services and increas-
ed building will come the need for
more streets.
This is the problem as it stands
today.

In the light of these needs, we
would strongly urge that you not
just vote for "Joe" because he is
a friend of yours or of the family.
We would urge that you cast your
ballot for the one that you be-
lieve has the business sense to
work out these problems and to
give our city the services it needs
at a cost that-its citizens can
afford to pay.

k Ernest Wimberly, local attorney,
started something last week in Ro-
tary Club when he suggested that
the club work toward seeing that
a fresh-water swimming pool is
established in this town.
We heartily recommend such.-a
move and have said so right he-:e
several times.
Whether the club will vote to
spearhead the project or not, is up
its board of directors, but whether
or not it decides to do so, the rec-
reation committee appointed by the

Saints Defeat Panama City 19-4

In First Game of Play-off Tuesday


Tuesday night, the St. Joe Saints
played host to the Panama City
Independents for the first game of
the'play-off. The Saints looked as
if they were in trouble when the
visitors collected two runs. in the
first inning and Smith's pitching
held our local lads in line until the
bottom half of the third inning
when the Saints got two runs to
tie up the game. The Panama City
Independents got two more in the
top half of the fourth inning, mak-
ing the score read 4j2 in favor of
the visitors.
The Saints then turned on both
burners, took off the rubber gloves
and went to work. Walter Wilder
getting a couple of triples, W. J.
Herring stealing bases as if no one
was on the diamond except himself,
Jackie Mitchell showing the visitor's

Merchants Will

Sponsor Ball Game

Friday, Aug. 24

With the cooperation of the new-
ly organized Merchants Division of
the Chamber of Commerce there
will be a baseball game Friday
night, August 24 between the Saints
and in all probability, Apalachicola.
This particular night will be
known as Merchant's Night. Tick-
ets can not be bought at the gate
to the ball park on this night. To
get tickets for this game, you must
contact your favorite merchant to
receive your tickets free of charge.
There's a slight gimmick however,
but the postal laws prevent us tell-
ing you how. You will have to ask
your merchant.

West Florida's Garden of Eden To

Become Non-Profit Religious Shrine


From Washington Co. News
A 1,219-acre tract of West Florida
land near Bristol, believed by some
Biblical scholars to be the site of
the original Garden of Eden, has
changed hands.
The new owner is John W. Kluge,
of 2637 Connecticut Ave., Washing-
ton, D. C. {e bought the tract from
E. E. Callaway ,attorney of Bristol
and Blountstown, whose research
indicates indeed that this area
might be the "cradle of humanity".
Deed On ,Record
Kluge's deed to the tract has


been recorded at the Liberty
County Court House. Callaway
identified the buyer as a financier
and industrialist, who plans to de-
velop the tract as one of the
"World's greatest shrines."
It will be a non-profit venture.
Callaway is to remain associated
with the enterprise in a public re-
lations and advisory capacity.
He said Kluge indicated that
development probably would begin
within a few months. In the mean-
time, engineers and landscape spec-
ialists will be engaged to make a
study of the area and blueprint the
development program.
10-Year Project
He guessed that completion of
th project would require about
10 years.
'"I would not have relinquished
th1e property," declared Callaway,
"except with the understanding
that it would be developed as a
non-profit project.
"I have been accused, you know,
of promoting the Garden of Eden
Idea to make money," continued
the 67-year-old attorney, who has
been a longtime student of reli-
gion, philosophy and science.
He -denied the money-making
charge, explaining that "I don't
need the money at my age." He
added:
A Shrine For Everyone
"I want that shrine to belong to
all the people of the world."
He expressed a belief that the
new owner would make it one of
the most beautiful spots on the con-
tinent.
"My purpose and my mission is
to prove that there was intelligent,
purposeful creation," Callaway ex-
plained. He believes he has accom-
plished that in a brief on the Gar-
den of Eden that soon will be pub-
lished in book form.
He cites a need for "getting the
people to believe something. The
only way that America can sur-
vive," he declares, "is to turn back
to God and the Bible."
Three Unlimited Laws
God, in his opinion, is quite un-
like what people imagine him 'o
be. God is a combination of three
great unlimited laws, he maintains.
"God," Callaway believes, "is the
combination of the law of unlimited
energy or power, the law of unlim-
(ted life and the law of unlimited
intelligence. As a combination of


these unlimited laws," Callaway
explains, "God can do anything he
wants to."
He thus employed the all-power-
ful combination in the creation of
the heavens and the earth, and the
sun, moon and stars; the fishes
of the seas, and fowls of the air;
grass, herbs and fruit trees; beasts,
cattle and creeping things, and then
people,.
God planted a garden north of
Bristol and grew there the tree of
life. It was there, Callaway says
his reesarch proves, that Adam


was created and given a soul and


later Mother Eve was created near-
by to keep him company.
Built of Gopher Wood
It was in this garden, occupying
a bluff overlooking the beautiful
Apalachicola River, that Noah's
Ark was built. It was in the gar-
den that Noah found the gopher
wood trees from which the Ark was
built.
"The-evidence speaks for itself,"
Callaway declares. "It refutes for
all time the Evolutionists' attack

upon the Biblical account of our-
poseful creation I have been
able to unfold the facts in absolute
proof of the Biblical account of
creation, and of the location of the
Garden of Eden.
He said Kluge, before making
the purchase of the Garden, sub-
mitted his brief on the subject to
some of the world's leading Bibli-
cal authorities. He said none of
them has been able to refute or
discredit the evidence pointing to
the Northwest Florida area as the
Garden of Eden site.
,Some Supporting Evidence
Here is a little of the supporting
evidence Callaway has compiled:
1. Genesis 2-9 tells us that God
planted this garden and "out of the
ground caused to grow every three
that is pleasant to the sight."
Just north of Bristol will be
found a greater variety of trees
than is found at any other spot on
earth. There are 28 trees mentioned
in the Bible. Twenty-seven of them
have been identified in this Garden
of Eden locale. Among them is th-.
gopher tree, this being the only
spot in the world where it grows.
A River Out of Eden
2. Genesis 2-10 tells us that a
river went out of Eden to water the
garden, and that it parted and had
four heads.
The Apalachicola Chattahoochee
Flint River system is the only such
waterway in the world answering
that description. The "four heads"
are the Chattahoochee, Fish Ponad
Creek,. Spring Creek and the Flint
River, all of which flow together to
make up the Apalachicola near
where the Jim Woodruff Dam is
now located.
3. The Bible makes reference to
good gold in its description of the
area.
The Chattahoochee-iApalachicola
River system rises in a Georgia

Highland View WSCS

Meets With Mrs. McNeil

The Woman's Society of Chris-
tian Service of the Hghland View
Methodist Church met August 13
at 8 p.m. in the beach cottage of
Mrs. J. T. McNeill.
Mrs. A. B. Pratt called the meet-
ing to order followed with prayer
by Mrs. Charles Travis Greenin.
Mrs. W. H. Weeks had cha-go of
the program, "Indian American".
The program was the second studyI
ccrse with each member present
taking part in an interat!ug rc:ed-
ing and discussion. Mrs. Pratt sang
the Dakota hymn and Mrs. Georg(
Fatton dismissed the grouo with
the benediction.
Refreshments were served by the
hostess to the 13 members present.

area where gold is still mined in
small quantities. Assayers say the
gold mined in North Georgia is the
purest gold known. The Bible also
says there was bdellium (resin)
and onyx stone (marble) there.
Georgia has long been famous for
both of these.
Giants Once Lived Here
4. Genesis 6-4 says "there were
giants in the earth in those days
and they were mighty men of re-
nown."
Skeletons and the works of such
giants have been found in Florida,
Georgia, Kentucky, Arizona, Old
Mexico and (Peru. he skeletons
found in the Western Hemisphere
antedate those found on any other
continent.
5. Genesis 6-14: "God said unto
Noah make thee an ark of gopher
wood and pitch it within and with-
out with pitch."
Both the gopher wood and the
pitch were found in the area be-
tween Bristol and Chattahoochee.
That area is the only place in the
world where both can be found.
'Floated Five Months
6. After the Ark wa sloaded, and
the earth was covered with water

15 cubits deep on the highest moun-
tain, it floated with the atmosphere
or wind to Mt. Ararat in Armenia
where it landed.
The eastward drift carried the
ark. The drift is a result of the
earth whirling on the axis east-
ward. The rate of drift is known
The time the ark was afloat is
known. The site of the ark is
known. This information has been
used in calculation gthat indeed the
ark might well have drifted from
Northwest Florida to Mt. Ararat. In
fact, that is the direction a similar
vessel would float if set adrift un-
der similar circumstances today.
Found Animals Here
7. Where did Noah find all the
animals that went Into the ark?
There is evidence to indicate
that he got them right here in
Northwest Florida. The limestone
formations of the immediate area
contain ones or fossilized parts
of every animal known to have liv-
ed on the earth.
8. The Encyclopedia Brittanica
says, "There are many speculations
as t othe site of the location of the
Garden of Eden To try to lo-
cate a mythological garden would
naturally be attended with great
difficulty." Is the Garden of Eden
a myth?
If so, then the Biblical story of
creation is a myth, which would
make the Bible itself a myth.
Why The Assumption
9. Why have people generally as-
sumed that creation started in the
Eastern Hemisphere?
Perhaps because the existence of


the Western Hemisphere was un-
known to man at the time the Bi-
ble was written. Even Noah, after
drifting 150 days upon the water,
had no means of knowing he had
left one continent and landed upon
another. Continents in Biblical
times had not been named. It was
not until Columbus discovered
America in 149 2A.D. that a reverse
voyage was made partially over the
LArk't rmt.

Bible Account Strengthened
10. Do these findings and conclu-
sions in any way discredit or dis-
pute the teachings'of the Bible?
On the contrary, all the findings
and conclusions based on them thus
thus far have supported and strong
thened the Biblical account of pur-
poseful creation.
The findings simply pinpoint the
location of the originfrl Garden of
Eden, something gthat no one haa
done before. Man, previously, had
been content to assume that it was
in Southwest Asia. That assump-
tion has gone unproven. But there's

Why put off the fun of a Ford Test Drive
for a single day? As you know, it puts you
under absolutely no obligation. And it may
save you literally hundreds of dollars-
we'll get to that a little further on.
By a Test Drive we mean more than a
once-around-the-block "spin."
We want you to test the power that
rocketed Ford to a 500-mile stock car record
at Indianapolis .. the GO that won. the
grand prize at NASCAR's Daytona Cham-
pionships. We want you to feel how this
Ford scat pays off in your-kind of driving:
in traffic, passing on the highway, getting
going at traffic lights. We'll put either a
Ford Six or a mighty V-8 with up to 225
h.p. at your disposal.
We want you to drive and listen-drive
and feel.
That fine-car quiet results from sound


insulation under the hood, under the roof,
in door and body panels-the most insula-
tion in any car at anywhere near Ford's
low price.
Some other things that contribute to that
smooth, silent, luxury-car ride are things
which Ford's leading competitor certainly
can't boast: Ball-Joint suspension with

When the menhaden is out of
season, Heaton said the Apalachi-

oyster shells, which also will be
sold to feed mills.
Besides the menhaden the pro-
cessing plant also will buy scrap
fish from commercial fishermen
from "Pensacola to K aj West",
Heaton said.
He said it will be several years
before the cold storage :acilitles
are put into. operation, -but even-
trally this will probably be the
tee was Mrs. Van De Hart and
He said such a facility will mater-
ially affect the economy of the Big
Bend area in that it will enable
fishermen to find a market f r fish
when prices are low.
In earlier years, the principal use
for the fish was for oil and ferit-
lizer.
The company is capitalized at
$500,000, with $100,000 of B stock
reserved for officers and founders
of the company. Another $300,000
will be sold to the public at $1 a
share. Stock offered the public will
from the sale of the stock to the
public will be held in escrow until
the full $300,000 has been reached.
If it should fail to sell, money will
be returned.
Heaton said under the sale ar-
rangements, the money collected
be A stock.
4 LARGE BOATS
Besides the plant, Heaton said
the company will operate a fleet
of four large boats and will have
an airplane to act as a spotter.
Heaten, said the nearest menha-
den processing plants are now lo-
cated at Fernandina Beach and in
Mississippi.
The menhaden, which also goes
bya variety of other names, is
abundant in the Apalachicola area
during- the Spring and Summer
months.

Social Security


NOTES


Approximately four million addi-
tional persons are now under so-
-cial security under the 1956 chan-
ges in the law, John V. Carey, dis-
trict manager of the Panama City
social security office, said this
week. Most of this new coverage Ia
effective for tax years ending af-
ter 1955. Specifically, all self-em-
ployed people, including all self-
employed professional groups ex-
cept doctors of medicine, who have
a net profit of as much as $400 in
a tax year are covered.
Several changes have been made
as social security applies to farm
operators and farm workers. The
changes affecting farm workers
will not apply until after 1956. (The
present law covering farm workers
paid $100 or more in cash wages in
a full calendar year by one farm
employer remain in effect through-
out 1956. Farm employers are to
make their regular annual reports
to the District Director of Internai
Revenue in January 1957.)
For tax years ending after 1955,
a farm land owner who materially
participates in the operation of the
farm under ra share farming ar-
rangement will receive social secur-
ity credits for his part of the farm
income. (Such tenant income was
considered rental income and did
not count for social security pur-
poses for tax years which ended
prior to 1956.)
A new optional method of report-
ing farm income is provided for all
farm operators, share croppers, or
other tennant farmers, for taxable
which end on or after December
31, 1956. This means that any farm-
er who files his tax returns on a
calendar year basis will apply the
new optional method in reporting
his 1956 income. Briefly, the farm
operator whose gross farm income
is $600 and no more than $1,800
may report two-thirds of gross farm
income as profit. If gross farm in-
come exceeds $1,800 and actual net
profit is less than $1,200, the op-
tion permits the reporting of $1,200
profit. Of course, in this situation
gross earnings, more than $1,890,
the farmer must report on actual
net profit if in excess of $1,200.
Partners in a farm operation and
farmers who keep, their records on
an accrual basis may use the above
optional method of reporting for tax
years ending on or after Decem-
ber 31, 1966.
Under the 1956 changes, all mill.
tary personnel come under social
security as of January 1, 1957, on
a contributory basis. Military per
sonnel will pay social security tax
on the amount of their base pay
Plans are for the Department of De.
fense to co-ordinate the issuance of
all new social security cards, with
the Social Security Administration
at the national level. The free so-
cial security credits of $160 per
month provided in previous amend
ments to the Social Security Law
are now effective through Decem-
ber 31, 1956.
Certain technical changes were
made in 1956 which will enable


ran survivors itniraun under so0
cial security, including gthe most
recent changes, Carey concluded.
In future articles, we will discuss
each of the new changes separately.

LAW OF CONTRADICTION
One of the three primary laws
of thought upon which all reason-
ing must ultimately epend is the
law of Contradiction-that nothing
can both be and not be at the same
time and in the same place. A
piece of paper may be white and
afterward be blackened in the
flame, but it cannot be white and
black at the same time. White is
white, and black is black. Good is
good, and bad is bad. And the two
cannot be mixed.
Much of human error is due tp
reasoning and proceeding in a way
counter to the law of Contradiction.
And the sad thing is that many
men try to shape their lives apart
from this law. They are constant.
ly trying to compromise between
good and evil
Holy Writ tells of only two road
that lead from time to eternity-
one straight and narrow and lead.
ing to the gate of heaven, the othet
broad and smooth but leading to
the gate of hell. There is no middle
road that leads off between the
two, a road neither hard and dif.
ficult and neither broad and
smooth.
Strive to keep to the straight
way-it may be narrow but it is
kwid enough far you, it may b4
havd but it leads to the gate o(
'heaven. It Ia an unpopular-way'
but its course is always upwarQ
and t leads to light at last. _J

SOMETHING BIG COOKING?-
Congressman Jim Haley may have
uncovered one of the biggest scan-
dals of the year. It has to do with
a land grab deal on the Crowe In-
dian Reservation in Montana. Back
in 1920, in order to protect the
rights of the Indians, the Congress
passed a law that restricted the
amount of land that any one per.
son could own in that reservation.


SI


AT THE next session of Con-
gress, the Department of Agri-
culture in all probability will lose
its authority over meat packers
insofar as anti-trust proceedings
are concerned. There has been con-
siderable criticism of Secretary of
Agriculture Ezra T. Benson about
hiring representatives of the
American Meat Institute on his
payroll, or consultants "'om the
packing industry.
Hearings brought out, -before
a senate Judiciary Subcommittee,
that the USDA has failed to carry
out its anti-trust functions against
the packers, and although the com-
mittee investigation has been tem-
porarily suspended until after
adjournment of Congress, recom-
mendations have come from some
western meat packers and from
the sub-committee chairman,
Senator Joseph O'Mahoney, (D-
Wyo.) that this anti-trust authority
be shifted over to the Federal Trade
Commission. Also as a result of
these hearings, Senator Arthur
Watkins, (R-Utah) has introduced
a bill, (S-4177) which would trans-
fer to the FTC all anti-trust func-
tions of the Agriculture Depart-
ment, which it holds under the
Packers and Stockyards Act. i,
S *
The Senate by a voice vote
passed the so-called Fryingpan.
Arkansas River project in Colo-
rado, a multi-purpose water con-
trol project, for irrigation, flood
control and hydroelectric produc-
tion. It took bi-partisan action to
pass the measure, which seeks to
divert water from the upper Colo-
rado river into the Arkansas river
valley. Project cost will run ap-
proximately $156,541,000 with
$67,q53 allocated to irrigation and
'$44,551,000 to power, with $17,8
'million for flood control


'S
'I /


The project had Eisenhower Ad-
ministration support, the second
large multi-purpose projected sup-
ported by the administration, the
other being the huge upper Colo-
rado river project. In this latter
project, $469.7 million is allocated
to power costs to produce 3.5 bil-
lion kw of electricity annually. In
the Fryingpan Arkansas River proj-
ect $44.5 million is allocated to
power to produce 467.2 million kw
of electricity annually. *
In contrast, the Administration
thus far is holding fast against
the construction' of the Hells Can-
yon project on the Snake river,
which has allocated costs of $270
million for power and which would
produce in excess -of five billion kw
of electricity. Thus Hells Canyon
would produce a billion mo e kilo-
watt-hours than the two Colorado
projects at about half the cost
within the large Columbia River
basin.
At Hells Canyon, where ten years
ago Army Engineers recommended
the world's highest dam, and
where the Eisenhower adminis-
tration turned down the govern-.
ment construction In favor of
three smaller dams to be built
by the Idaho Power Company,
under a license granted by the
Federal Power Commission, the
Congress also may take some re-
medial action. L
The Senate Committee on Interior
and Insular Affairs has just re-
cently reported out a bill favor-
ably, S-863, which contains a sig-
nificant amendment introduced
by Senator Neuberger, of Oregon.
This bill would suspend construe-,
tion of any power project licensed
by the FPC located on a non-navi-
gable river or intra-state stream
where construction has not reached
the point of impounding water.
