VOLUME XX SWaIle Copy So ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, DrCEMBSR 6, 1956 NUMBER 14
by WESL-EY R. RAMSEY
Did you ever try going to a bar
becue while on a diet? We are go
ing to be right blunt and say thai
we are not on a diet by our own
choosing. We enjoy eating. But the
wife has put us on one to get back
down to 180 and just won't put
anything on the table to eat. And
there's no cheating on the side with
a twice a day weight -check. How-
ever, we did cheat Tuesday night
at the barbecue.given in honor of
Senator ISpessard Holland. That
barbecue even made those present
forget to tease us about having
Fred Maddox being born in 1881 in
last week's paper instead of 1891.
That's just how good it was.
We weren't the only ones cheat-
ing either. Earl Atchison, who has
the beginning of an ulcer was eat-
ing up. (He Was right ahead of Dr.
Joe in the line and Joe said, "Earl,
don't you come to me with ,the
belly-ache tomorrow". And then
there. was Floyd Lister of Wewa.
who had dieted down to a mere
shadow of his former self, enjoying
himself once more. We sat right
across the table from Terry tHinote
and he should ,be ashamed to look
a pig in the face, the way he skin-
ned those ribs.
Jack Justice, former resident and
now an Ocala car salesman, was
back in town and at the barbecue.
Wilbur Thurabay came up and be-
gan talking shop with him. Jack
remarked that he would be visiting
in Port St. Joe until after Christ-
mas. Wilbur'fell back with a gasp
and blurted out, "You mean busi-
ness is so' good there you can af-
ford to take off a mouth?" And just
in case you were going to ask him,
Jack said they didn't need any more
car salesmen in Ocala.
Only 14 more shopping, days
left 'until CbAstmas. Have you
started your shopping yet? If not
why not make a special effort to
do your Christmas shopping right
here in Port St. Joe this "year-
just as an experiment, if nothing
else-and see if you# don't get
what you want and your money's
worth, all at the same time.
Have you been keeping up with
the "Cold War" in Europe in LIFE
magazine? They have been doing a
real job of reporting over there.
We looked at the fly-covered corp-
ses and the dead and dying that
were pictured therein and shudder-
ed to think -what would happen
when 'a "Hot War" breaks out. We
can't imagine the feelings of those
people over there.
Just imagine yourself' becoming
so filled with hate at your govern-
ment that you would start taking
pot shots at Kelly, Buck, Lee 'Ed-
wards or Mr. Martin or even going
over to Tyndall Field and sniping
at the soldiers over there.
We think that it is no small rea-
son for their uprising and we mar-
vel at their courage at such odds.

A Busy Day Sunday
The Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department had a busy Sunday this
past week end.
Sunday at 12:30 p.a the Fire De-
partment was called to Avenue F in
tn quarters where an oil stove was
acting up. Only smoke .damage was
suffered by, the house.
Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m. the
department was called to Highland
View where a house burned be-
hind the McCormick Super Mar-
ket. The house, which was com-
pletely destroyed, was unoccupied
at the time.
The house was nearly destroyed
when the blaze was discovered and
the alarm turned in.
ner. Four feeding tables were set
up to serve the guests as they ser-
ved themselves from a plentiful sup-
ply of barbecued chicken, ribs, cole
slaw, pickles and coffee.
After the dinner, MC Belin pre-
sented Senator George Tapper who
introduced the guest of honor to
give an address to those gathered.
. To begin' his address, Senatpr
Holland recollected the first time
he spoke in Port St. Joe in 1938 dur-
ing the Centennial Celebration held -
in Port St. Joe to commemorate
the hundreth anniversary of the
signing of the first Florida Con-
stitution In old St. Joseph located
near the present site of Port St.
Joe. Senator Holllid was a State
Senator at the time.
Hiolland cit e d improvements
made in the last year to the har-
bor at Port St. Joe; to the Intra-
coastal Canal and to the State For-
estry protection service. He ap-
plauded the progress being made in
this vicinity in the production of
'pine trees. He said that pine trees
grew faster in, this section of
Florida than any other.-He urged-,
that further efforts be made to
convert idle lands into tree pro-
ducing areas. According to the Sen-
ator, the pine tree was responsible
*or 350 million dollars in manufac-
tured products in Florida-last ypar.
'Senator Holland then switched.
his subject to the proposed govern-
ment highway system that,will be
built on a ten year plan on a pay-
as-you-go basis. He declared that
this network of roads will give the
nation some 40,000 miles of first
rate roads for the driving public.
The highway system isa being built
for three purposes;, to provide su-
per-highways for defense purposes,
to curtail some of the traffic acci-
dents on the road today and f( r
more comfortable driving condi-
tions: through better roads. Holland
said that Florida will get 30 mil-
lions of dollars for the first year
of this program and 34 millions for
the second year. The first link of
the' national super-highways will
run from Pensacola to Jacksonville
but he didn't say what route they
would follow to get there.
He pointed -out that funds for thil
road system that would be speit
in the state of Florida would not
come from the road assistance the
state now receives from Washing-
ton. The money for this highway
system Is being financed by increa.i-'
ed, taxes on gasoline and tires.
-In predicting things to happen
in the next session, Holland dwelt
on the subject of decreased income
taxes to some length. He said that

tion was existing UNTI-L- the

BUDDING actors and actresses,
take this advice from Betsy
Palmer-be a television panelist
if you possibly can. .. The pretty
blonde panel member of ABC-
TV's "Masquerade Party" thinks
that paneling has some definite
advantages over acting-although
she wouldn't advise anyone to
forsake a million dolar- Holly-
wood acting career "In pan-
eling," says Betsy. "There's no
scene-stealing You don't run
into the same rivalry that you
often do among actors Sin#te
every panelist has his own field,
his own techniques and delivery,
you're not competing for atten-
tion .. The only rivalry comes
from trying to guess a guest's
identity, and that's a game.
"There's another important ad-
vantage to paneling; you don't
have to memorize dialogue .
That's a particular blessing for
people with poor memories .
Betsy goes on to point out that
working on a panel does away
with long rehearsals, moving from
one location to 'another, and the
101 worries connected with keep-
ing your name in the bright
But if yon think the 26-year-old
actress is giving up her acting
career for quiz panels, you're
wrong. '. She's leen acting since
college days and feels there's too
much of the ham in her to stay
away from the stage or camera
very long You may have
seen Betsy in t movies "The
Long Gray Line," "Queen Bee"
and "Mr. Roberts" Last
summer she was active in sum-
mer stock and before that she had
a fairly good role in the short-
lived Broadway pla.y "Affair of
Honor" She's also done a
number of TV plays.
When not involved with TV,
Betsy lives the life of a house-
wife (a very good one, say her
friends) with her obstetrician hus-..
band, Dr. V. J. Merendino .
Other pursuits Include reading, a
wide variety of outdoor sports,
-itann.nsivin and amnaina laasan.

'War and Peace', Mammoth Film of
Tolstoy's Great Novel Due At Port
The long-standing dream of the
motion ,picture industry to bring
Leo Tolstoy's "War and Peace,"
called the greatest novel ever writ-
ten, to the screen is finally an ac-
complished fact. Thirty years after
the first unsuccessful attempt to
dramatize the immortal classic,
Paramount's Ponti DeLaurentiis
filmization of the 1400-page book
has had its triumphant world pre-
miere and will begin its local run
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at
the Port Theatre.
A huge, three-hour-andAtw-nty-
eight-minute motion picture, "War
ald Peace" required six years and
the combined efforts of tsns o:
thousands of people from all over
the world to be brought to comuole-
tion. Filmed in Italy under the hand
of producer Dino DeLaurentils and
director King Vidor, the vast pano
rama of life, love and battle in Im-
perial Russia during the Napoleon-
ic invasions has a tremendous casL
containing some of Europe and
America's greatest acting names.
IStarring in the three major roles
are Audrey Hepburn, Henry Fonda
and Mel Ferrer, co-starring are-Vit-
torio Gassman, Herbert Lom, Oscar
Homolka, Anita Ekberg and John
Mills. The'large and notable sup-
porting cast includes Helmut Dan-
tine, Barry Jones, Anna Maria Fer-
rero, Milly Vitale and Jeremy Brett,
with the total number of speaking
parts coming gto a prodigious sixty,
the largest in the history of Euro-
pean film making.
Primarily the story of people, ra
other than historical events, wit i
three moving love stories intricate-
ly interwoven with the stories of a
d oz e n unforgettable characters,
"War and Peace" is nevertheless
backgrounded by the fury and dia-
ma of three of history's most epic

For Jr. College
School leaders from 32 counties
were told Tuesday that location of
five proposed new junior colleges
will depend to a large extent on a
county's ability to help foot .the bill.
No attempt was made to select
the areas where the first colleges
would be recommended nor were
any estimates given on appropria-
tions the 1957 Legislature will be
asked' to provide.
The speakers made it clear that
the selection or sites would depend
on population, educational need and
local financial ability.
Thomas D. Bailey, State School
Superintendent and members of the
Community College Council met
with superintendents and school
board personnel of 32 counties com-
prising 14 areas considered in the
top -priority group for junior col-
Other speakers were Council
Chairman Allen Grazier of St. Pet-
eraburg and Dr. J1ames L. Watten-
barger', council director. A major
factor in locating the colleges will
be a mninimum potential enrollment
of at least *100 students. ,
Localities from which four or
five will be selected for immediate
construction include Dade, Brow-
ard. Polk, Hillsborough, St. Lucie,
Marlin Indian and Manatee,
Orange. Osceola, River and Okee-
chobee, Sarasota and Seminole,
Volusia and iFlagler, Lake and Sum-
ter, Marion. Levy and Citrus, St.
