Hospital Blood Bank

Saves Quincy Woman

The 'Port St. Joe Municipal
Hospital walking blood bank, in-
augurated last summer saved the
life of a Gadsden County woman
last week end.
The grandmother of one of the
nurses at the hospital, Mrs. La-
vinia Hicks, was seriously ill in
a Quincy hospital. !She had type
AB blood which occurs in 350 out
of every 5,000 people.
A transfusion was needed and
her type blood could not be found
in Quincy, Tallahassee or Marian-
na hospitals. A check with the
local blood bank system turned
up three people with this rare
blood. The blood was taken to
Quincy and the grandmother is
doing fine.

ey Tigers On Muddy Field For

Win; Meet Bay High 'B' Squad Tonight


The St. Joe Sharks had to fight was turned into a TD by the Tiger


for their lives' to cut down a sec-
ond half drive by a good Chipley
team in order to come out ahead in
an 18-13 win. The Sharks played a
very- spasmotic brand of football
throughout the game, except in the
second quarter, when they burst
loose for five touchdowns. However
two of these touchdowns were call-
ed back for penalties. Both teams
were unable to travel in the first
quarter.
In the second quarter, the Sharks
completely humbled the dumbfound-
ed Tigers as they went.on their
wildest scoring spree in years. It
seemed the Sharks could do noth


quarterback Peterson who sneaked
it across from the two. The Tigers
played possession ball and com-
pletely stymied the Shark offensive
as well as defense who couldn't
seem to figure out what was going
on. The Tigers scored their final
TD in the last quarter on another
quarterback sneak by Peterson that
was highly controversial as to whe-
ther he crossed the goal lines or
not. However, the officials thought


he did and the game ended with
St. Joe's second victory, 18 to 13.
The Sharks meet Bay High Jun-
ior Varsity tonight in Panama City.

In one of the most beautiful of
Autumn weddings, on October 7,
Miss Boncile McCormick was mar-
ried to Charles Asa Earnest in the
First Methodist Church of Port St.
Joe.
The bride is the daughter of Mr
and Mrs. Barney L. McCormick, and
Mr. Earnest is the son of Asa
Barnes Earnest of Jasper, Ala.
Wearing an exquisite gown of
Chantilly lace over tissue taffeta,
the .bride entered on the arm of
her .father, Barney L.- McCormick,
by whom she was given in mar
riage. Her gown featured a jewel
neckline and molded bodice and
was softened by a crushed sash ot
taffeta that formed a back panel,
extending the full length of the
bouffant skirt. The bride's beauty
was framed by a finger tip veil of
illusion which flowed gracefully
from a small crown of Swiss lace
embroidered in seed pearls. She
carried a yellow throated white or
chid on a white Bible.
Tall yellow tapers banked with
fall, bronzed leaves furnished light
from the windows of the church for
the 5:00 o'clock ceremony. Massel1
fall foliage, with delicate cascades
of greenery was elevated in front
of four, seven-branched candel-
abrum holding flickering yellow ta-
pers. Two arrangements of large
yellow chrysanthemums and gladio-
li in brass vases were placed within
the chancel. he Altar was embellish-
ed with lighted waxen candles in
two, seven-branched brass holders.
The marirage vows were exchanged
before Rev. Fred L. Davis. Mrs.
Mark Tomlinson, organist, render-
ed a medley of prenuptial music,
and used traditional wedding mar-
ches from Mendelssohn and Wagner
as processional and recessional.
Mrs. James Tankersley, soloist,
sang "With This Ring" by (Sacco).
"0O, Promise Me" by (De Koven)
was sung by Earl Tom Pridgeon, Jr.
"The Lord's Prayer" by (Mallote)
was sung and the beautiful cere-
mony was terminated. Mrs. Earl
Tom Pridgeon and Miss Patsy Wil-
der, honor attendants, wore waltz
length dresses of peacock blue,
polished silk taffeta with the neck-
line falling gto a deep V in the back.
The flared skirts were inserted
with V-shaped panels of the same
material. They wore matching ban-
deaus of velvet ribbon ,and their
satin slippers were also peacock
blue. The bridesmaid, Mr. H. Guy
Able of Jasper, Alabama, sister of
the groom, was dressed in an iden-
tical style to that of the honor at-
tendants: Her boukuet was compos-
ed of half-blown sunlight yellow ro-
'ses, with streamers of velvet match-
ing her head band.
Mr. Earnest chose his father, Asa
Barnes Earnest, of Jasper, Alabama
for his best man and his usher
groomsmen were H. Guy Able of
Jasper, and Earl McCormick of Port
St. Joe.
The mother of the bride chose
for her daughter's wedding a sheath
dress of toast lace over pale rose
satin. She wore matching accessor-
ies and her corsage was of yellow
rose buds. Mrs. Earnest, mother of
the groom, wore a street length
dress of dark grey with black ac-
cessories. Her corsage was compos-
ed of red rose buds.

mony, a' reception was held in the
social hall of the church, was was

An announcement of decisive importance


,to anyone about to buy a new automobile


The most exhaustive endurance test
ever given an automobile has just
been completed by two stock '57
Fords-identical in every respect
with cars now being offered by Ford
Dealers.

Under the supervision of the United
States Auto Club and .the Federa-
tion Internationale de Automobile,
each of these two '57 Fords traveled
9.000 miles in less than 20 days.
Ford No. 1 averaged 108.16 mph for
the entire run ... Ford No. 2, over
107 mph. These averages include
time 'r all p_ stops.

In all, the '57 Ford smashed 458
national and international records.

This test was run on the Bonneville
Salt Flats in Utah .. it was the
longest left turn in history.


A car, like a man, is known by its deeds,
not words.
That is why, we at Ford, despite our con-
fidence in our '57 cars, let their deeds of
accomplishment speak for themselves.
Therefore, we engaged an independent
engineering organization to test our '57
cars more thoroughly than any other
cars have ever been tested before in
this country or abroad.
We provided them with '57 Fords-cars
identical with those now offered by Ford
Dealers. The rest we left up to them.
Here is what they did:
They took these cars to the Salt Flats at
Bonneville, Utah.
Here, twelve of the world's greatest
drivers took over.
In relays they drove these cars night and
day for a distance greater than twice
around the world ... a distance equal


to 5 years of normal driving.
Not in all history has a man-built ma-
chine traveled so far in so short a time-
by land or sea!
But this was not a test of speed-but of
endurance of the "Inner Ford." A trial
to take the measure of Thunderbird Y-
block V-8 power without qualification
of any kind. A test of running gear-of
brakes, of materials in body and chassis.-
Of steering and roadability, yes, and
comfort, too!
A test, indeed, such as no other cars have
ever undergone, let alone successfully
concluded.
Surely they have told you, in decisive
terms, that they are worth more when
you buy and when you sell!
Your Ford Dealer will gladly place at
your disposal the new kind of Ford that
means a new kind of value for your car-
buying dollar-the greatest the world has
ever seen.
