ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESL.EY R. RAMSEY


'Harry was right.
Harry Truman, that is.
He said Adlai couldn't beat Ike
and he didn't.

We have shied away from com-
menting on football because we
just weren't too "hep" on the sub-
ject. We do enjoy watching 'the
games though. These past two sea-
sons of romping up and down the
sidelines taking pictures has given
us a football education to some
extent.
We noticed in setting up the foot-
ball story that brother Will gave
Blair Shuford some due credit on
his quarterbacking ability and cit-
ed his passing.
Blair is also an effective ball
handler too. We were standing in
the end zone Friday night to pho-
tograph the touchdown play. The
Blountstown backs were in our lap
so to speak, and we had just as
good a view as they did. Fullback
Wayne Taylor came charging- up
following the snap and Shuford
handed off to Taylor, as we and
the Blountstown team were led to
believe. The entire Calhoun County
team swarmed over Wayne and
stopped him short of the goal line.
We put down our camera and the
Blountstown team heaved "a sigh
of relief. But-Wayne didn't have
the ball. While the referees were
running up to see where the ball
was, Travis Jones ..was trotting
ar ball for
... ar. untouched.
Shuford can also fake a hand-off
pretty well.

The cool weather has also brot
on the fire season. The fire depart-
ment was called on to give its at-
tention to its first flooded heater
of the season Tuesday morning.
This corner and the fire depart-
ment would urge that you use ex-
treme care with ,our heaters and
burning trash in your yard in the
months to come.
,Don't turn your heater on and
leave it to "fill up" before lighting
it. Upon lighting the heater give
it your attention for a few minutes
to make sure it stays lit. Do not,
under any circumstances, relight
your heater after it gets warm and
goes out. Let it cool down until
you can lay your hand on the
burner. This will save the city the
price of sending out the fire depart-
ment and it could save you your
home.

Did you get to talk over the ra-
dio yesterday?
Frankly, they can have that job.
We'll stick to the newspaper busi-
ness where all I have to "talk" to
is the linotype keyboard. It won't
bite like the microphone appears it
would.
We went out yesterday morning
to get a story from Wilbur Powell,
the president and Marty Begley
the manager of the station. Wilbur
says, "you've gotta talk over our
stationn. "No, sir", we said and
started out the door. Powell applied
the pressure and started us in an-
,other direction and Begley stuck
a microphone under our ,noot and
says "Here is our newsman out
here nosing around, how about say-
ing a few words, Wes?" I swear I
couldn't even think of a few words
much less say them. We got by and
out of that joint right quick like.
We are glad to have them here
though, and we don't have our
tongue in our cheek when we say
it. This town needs to become ad-
vertising conscious. Not only the
merchants, but -ma,inly the people.
We have to do this in order to grow.
To grow, we will have to do a sell-
ing job, and that's advertising.

Ever seen the neck tie that you
would shell out 200 bucks for? Me
either. But Jesse [Stone is adver-
tising one this. week and declares
we will consider it a bargain. We
weren't born in Missouri, but we
were born close enough to that
doubting state to not believe this
claim until we see it.

Send The Star to a friend.

Sharks Defeat Blountstown


For Season's Fourth Victory


Have Two Wins In

NWF Conference

By WILL L. RAMSEY
The St. Joe Sharks completely
befuddled what was supposed to
have been a good Blountstown team
to the score of 19-0 last Friday
night on the local gridiron.
The Shark defense, which has
improved 100% with each game
held the confused Tiger ground
crew to a meager 75 yards. The
S h ark s all-conference fullback
Wayne Taylor had his biggest night
yet in pounding out 133 yards in
21 carries for a 6.3 yards per carry
average., Taylor added to his one
man show by scoring two TD's
and connecting with one point af-
ter touchdown. Travis Jones, Wil-
ford Elliott and Buddy Hudson also
added to the show with some spec-
tacular running:
The Sharks took the opening kick
off on their 3'5 yard line and didn't
give it up until Taylor scored his
first TD from the two yard line.
After receiving the Sharks kick-
off, Blountstown was forced to
punt to the Shark 35 where Taylor
Jones and Hudson combined forces
to bring the ball down to the Tiger
,seven where Travis Jones scam-
pered over for the TD.
The ,Sharks scored again in the
second quarter but a very unusual
and untimely whistle blow by the
referee stopped the play before
Taylor scored.
With only three minutes gone
in the third quarter, Taylor took
the ball on the Tiger 15 and


Scout Troop 47 Puts

Out "Vote" Circulars

Boy Scout Troop 47 had a busy
three-quarters of an hour Monday
night, when they took over their
part of the nationwide Boy Scout
program of getting out the vote
for last Tuesday's election.
The Scouts received their mater-
ial this past week end for distribu-
tion and since their regular meet-
ing date is Monday, decided to
put out the literature then.
The iScouts divided up into
groups and began to cover the town
putting a door-knob hanger at every
door urging the occupants to get
out and vote. The whole job took
*the Scouts exactly 45 minutes to
cover the city limits thoroughly.
According to returns in the city, it
would appear that the campaign
was a success.


stormed across for the TD to end
the scoring for the night.
Defensively for the Sharks, Larry
Mansfield, Tommy Wilder, Wayne
Taylor, Sonny Chafin and Terry
Hinote were standouts. Probably
the biggest gift package for the
'Sharks this year has been their
quarterback Blair Shuford who has
really come through, with no pre-
vious experience, and has done a
very creditable job. Shuford con-
nected with three passes good for,
75 yards.
The Sharks will meet Bonifay
Friday night and will be a heavy
favorite to add another win to their
record. Game time will be 8:00
p.m.

County Discusses A

Change In Road Policy


1.321. These figures do not in-
clude Precinct Number nine,
which is one of the largest pre-,
cincts in Port St. Joe.
The reason that the figures for
this Precinct and by precincts is.
not known is that the data is.
locked in the ballot box and the
votes will not be canvassed until
sometime today.
Even though Gulf County will
probably be the last one in the
nation to report its vote results,
this newspaper feels that the
results will not materially change
the outcome of the presidential
election.


City Will Install Water
Well At Holly Hill

At their regular meeting Tues-
day night, the City Commission
voted to put down a well at the
Holly Hill Cemetery to provide wa-

The request was made of the
Commission by a" group of women
under the leadership of Mrs. Ruth
'Soule, that has been formed to
improve the cemetery.

Monday, November 5 the County
tin fi t on the


Commission discussed at some
length the revamping of the Coun-
ty road building system.
In the past the County has ac-
cepted plats of .,ubi.' ision.s and
assumed the responsibility of build-
ing the roads .in these plats.
Tentative plans now are to have
the property owner assume the re-
sponsibility of building the streets
in new subdivisions. It is proposed
that after one year, the County will
take up the maintenance of these

This talk is all planning, however

Rev. Lloyd Riley Will Give His

Farewell Address Sunday Night

Rev. Lloyd Riley, pastor of the r


Oak Grove Assembly of God Church
will preach his farewell sermon at
the regular Sunday evening ser-
vices of the church at 7:30 p.m.
Rev. Riley has been pastor of the
church for the past three and a
half years.
During Rev. Riley's stay at the
church it has grown in attendance
from an average of 81 each Sunday
to a record high of 301. The Oak
Grove Church has added $65,000 in
improvements to their church pro-
perty, including a new church au-
ditorium and a new parsonage..Of
this amount, only $11,000 remains
unpaid.
Rev. Riley will go from here to
Bagdad, Florida to another pastor-
ate. Riley said that all that had
been accomplished during his pas-
torate was only made possible by
the cooperation of the people in
the church. He expressed a vote of
thanks to his congregation and to
the citizens of this locality for
making his stay here a most plea-
sant one.

One of the natural characteristl"
of cranberry jelly and other tarx

to stand and "weep."

Protection for a



LIFETIME!

Don't you wish there was a serum one that
could protect your child for a lifetime? Until
science comes up with such a serum, the best
protection you can give him is a good educa-
tion in health and safety.
In his school he gets instruction in nutrition
and growth, in body functioning, in cleanli-
ness, in the importance of medical and den-
tal examinations. He learns and practices
safe living in shop classes, Ain first aid
courses, on the school bus, through physi-
cal education and recreation programs.
But more than that, his teachers know
that safe and healthful living includes
mental and emotional well being .
Attitudes and habits that protect for a
lifetime.*
Schools have changed since you were
young? You bet they have. Why
not visit them and see how much?

W HEN Peter Lind Hayes first
subbed for Arthur Godfrey we
thought he was out of his element
. Peter and his wife, Mary
Elealy, are great as a night club
act They turned in sparkling
performances on night time tele-
vision, but to be turned loose
early in the morning just didn't
seem up their alley And Peter
seemed fIll at ease himself He
strained hard for laughs and didn't
seem to project as he is accus-
tomed to doing on the floor of a
club.
But much has happened since
that first substitution Now
Peter is poised, a veteran of the
program and it fits him like a
glove In fact, we invariably
feel sorry when Arthur comes
back... Both emcees are friendly
and unassuming but Peter adds
talent and versatility to his make-
up which has always been lacking
in the famous redhead Ar-
thur's greatest talent lies in his
ability to chart a smooth course
with his show (on the air, that is)
S. He Is an able captain of a
pretty talented crew.
Peter, on the other hand, leads
the crew with an outstanding tal-
ent of his own He is bright,
witty, young and willing to try
anything for the sake of a chuckle
His lovely wife and partner
s no slouch herself She's an
excellent singer and comedienne,
md together they are unbeatable
The Godfrey how goes much
;oo fast with these two zany and
ovable people at the helm.
If and when Godfrey retires, we
hope. CBS will keep the show in-
tact with the Hayes team They
should be able to steer the pro-
gram back to Nthe top ratings it
enJqyed before the boss man start
liquidating cast members as fast
t jStalin did his "frfends" in his
hey day Frank Parker, the

From the Webster Times, We'b-
ster, Massachusetts: Several of the
few remaining circuses have failed
In the United States in recent
years. The newspapers have car-
ried the story of another failure.
It is also reported that this may
be the last year for Ringling
Brothers Barnum & Cailey Cir-
cuses. It is said that the day of
carrying along tents .for huge
shows under the big top, is at an
end. It is even said that Ringling
Brothers Barnum & Bailey, which
has long been recognized as the
No. 1 circus attraction in this
country, will next year perform
in air-cooled, indoor auditoriums.
If this is true, it is the end of
the big top as many Americans
have known it for decades. It will
be the end for many things, and
the vast traveling assemblage
which has characterized the cir-
cus in America for so many years
will fade from the scene.
SThe smaller circuses have not
been able to make it in modern
times, competing with television
and other forms of entertainment.
They are now selling their animals
and the show will never go on the
road. Now the giant among them
closes down.
This is unfortunate, and to a
certain number of Americans it Is
almost a personal tragedy. The
circus. one might say. has been a


part of the American we f 1 fe.

much do you think your vote will
count in the election? If you're
an "armchair" citizen chances
are that you feel that YOUR vote
won't be missed.
If so, you're wrong Many elec-
tions in our history have been de-
cided by a handful of votes, and
Michigan has had its share of
these close elections Your
vote, whether it was cast or not,
may have been one of the decid-
ing ballots.
Primary day is your day, Mr.
and Mrs. Voter. If you cast an
intelligent ballot, you count. If
you stay home on primary elec-
tion day, you miss the chance to
have a say in the way your poli-
tical party is run. You endorse or
reject the candidates recommended
by the party organizations. Through
the primary, YOU decide, how.
ever indirect it seems, who is tc

lic office.
The act of merely m'Lrching tc
the polls to cast a vote, however,
is not the zenith of civic achieve
ment. Your vote should be care
fully considered one, based on the
thoughts and information you have
concerning the candidates and
isakes.

Decrease From '55

Both sales tax and gasoline tax
collections during the month of Oc-
tober, based on September sales,
showed decreases from the amounts
collected during the previous month
this year and increases over the
amount collected for the same
month during the previous year.
(ISeptember is always a low month
in sales and gas tax collections, par-
tially because iSeptember is be-
tween, seasons and tourism is usual-
ly low as children return to school.
Gas tax collections are hardest hit
due to the drop in tourist during
that month. However, both sales
and gas tax collections well exceed
last year's collections for the same
monthly period, indicative of the
basic and solid growth of the
state).
Sales tax collections during Octo,

Q-What is the "o nstructito grants" program of the new Federal
Water Polutlon Act?
A-This phase of the Act provides for grants of $50 millions for the cur.

treatment works needed for pollution control and water con.
servation.
4-'hat was the last farm price parity ratio announced by the Agrt-
culture Dept.?
A--On Sept. 15, 1956, the Department reported the parity ratio was 82%,
down from 84% on the same date in 1955. Prices received by
farmers were up almost one-half of 1%, but prices paid by farm-
ers were up 3% over a year ago, the Department reported.
Q-Can you give a measurement for a peacetime economy?
A--One measurement might be the percentage of the total budget spent
for military purposes. For instance, after World War I federal ex-
penditures for the armed forces ran from 27% between 1921 and 1925
to a low of 15% between 1931 and 1935 and an average of 16% from
1936 to 1940. The ratio was upped to 71% through 1941 and 1946. It
was cut to 37% in 1947 and to 34% in 1950. It climbed to 47% with the
Korean war in 1950 and reached 62% in 1952. After the Korean war
it was cut to 55% in 1955; 54% in 1956 and an estimated 52% in 1957.
With the ratio of military expenditures totalling more than half the
total federal budget likely is pot regarded as a "peacetnime" econ-

Coming! Arnerica's first production dream car


it will influence the shape of cars for years to come.


The old Detroit rule was to introduce new features
gradually, to make little changes each year. Sometimes
a new grille, an engine improvement, or new colors
and trim.
We broke that rule. In fact, we broke all the rules.
This is dynamite!
For you are not the only one who has dreamed of a
totally modern car, a car that has everything you find
at automobile shows, in illustrations, and in custom-
built experimental cars.
Detroit has had that dream, too. And that's.why.the
1957 Mercury is the car that has honestly excited the
most car-jaded, the most sophisticated of Detroit's
automotive experts.
When you see the new 1957 Mercury, you'll see
America's first full-production dream car-a.car that


will influence the shape of cars for years to come.
You'll see a dream car you can own and drive-a
car that has far more than startling years-ahead beauty.
THE BIG M for '57 boasts dream-car features never
before found outside a designer's dreambook: a Key-
board Control that makes ordinary push-button
driving old-fashioned; an exclusive Floating Ride with
a revolutionary new cushioning action you have to feel
to believe. There are Mercury "firsts" everywhere you
look. A Power-Booster Engine Fan in the Montclair
series that saves horsepower other cars waste. And
many more Mercury exclusives.
You'll see THE BIG M-the new Mercury for 1957
-soon. You'll'see it. You'll drive it. The first dream
car that can be yours. The dynamite is on its way
from Detroit to your dealer's-nowl
