ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
$* ee e*eceec ee
We read the news with sort of
a tongue in cheek fashion this week.
The big news Tuesday was the ad-
vocating of men in high places of
tight money and John Foster Dulles
revelation that Russia was crumbl-
ing inside due to her process of
government and control over her
satellites.
As for the advocation of tight-
ening up on money-I wonder if
those men have tried to borrow
any money of any significance
lately? We couldn't rightly'say
if it's "Tight" or not-but we
can say for sure that it is some-
what "Scarce".
As for John Foster's statement
about Russia. Shucks, he isn't
revealing anything earth shatter-
ing. If you read the Saturday.
Evening Post of some three or
four weeks back, you would have
read an article on just this same
subject written by a former am-,
bassador to Russia. And he said
practically the same thing that
"travellin' John" said.
Maybe Dulles' stay in the hospi-
tal 'has put him out of touch with
the 'Saturday Evening Post and he
is just now getting the word. "

We have nothing against Jonn.-
He has several things we would
like to have-mostly his expense
account.

This Christmas season coming up
couldn't have come on the scene
at a more opportune .time. Nobody
can deny that Christmas makes a
person more mellow toward his
fellow man. At no time since Korea
has mellowness been so badly need-
ed. It is doubtful that it will spread
to those parts of the World .where
it is needed however. We would be
so bold to express the thought that
they might .even come up with the
old pessimists theme song, "What
Have We Got To Be Thankful For"?
We would hate to try to answer,
them. -

'Speaking of Christmas, is your
shopping finished? 'Mine isn't
even started. When I shop .early
the wife pesterk me to death to
try and find out what's in that
or those packages. So, I remedy
that by waiting until the last
minute. And believe me, we are
not alone In those stores at the
last minute.

This business of 'Christmas com-
ing in the middle of the week has
its disadvantages for the weekly
newspapers. The main disadvantage
is how to get the paper out and
take the holiday too.
We -couldn't rightly say whether
the paper will be out on time
Christmas week or not, ibut we can
definitely say .that we will be ob-.
serving a holiday Christmas day
and possibly Christmas eve.
We're going to 'start worrying
now about next year, when Christ-
mas comes on Wednesday-our day
of -hitting the ball around the Star
printing plant getting the paper
to bed.

Exemptions On

Homes Planned

The Gulf County Continuing Edu-
cation Committee met Monday
night at the Elementary School to
hear a report in detail from the fi-
nance committee of that organiza-
tion. The finance committee 6was
,o report on progress to secure ex-
tra funds in the County School
Board treasury to better the con-
ditions of Gulf County schools.
George G. Tapper was the spokes-
man for the .finance committee 'and
reported that the committee had:
taken the matter of finances up
with fSamuel A. Patrick, Gulf Coun-
ty's Tax Assessor. Tapper reported
that the Tax Assessor was desir-
ous of cooperating with the council
and agreed to go over the tax rolls
and do re-evaluation work on the
present rolls and present them to
the GO EA finance committee for
further study after his work on
the rolls.
Tapper reported that after the
committee's talk with Patrick that
there would be not more automatic
homestead exemption claims.
The law specifies that homestead
exemption must be applied for each
year, but the Tax Assessor, being
familiar with tlt iL-i.>' owners in
the county, has been taking care of
this matter himself.
Tapper said that the Tax Asses-
sor will mail out forms to every
property owner around the first .of
the year for the property owner to
fill out. The forms will be for the
owner to declare the value of his
property, and give its location and
other pertinent information need-
ed, by the Tax Assessor to pro-
perly identify property. According
to Tapper, the declarations of val-
ue declared on these forms for in-
dividual property owners will not
necessarily mean that this amount
will go on the tax rolls. The pro.
perty owner declares the value of
the property and the Tax Assessor
sets the taxable value which in
Gulf usually comes to about 25 per'
cent of the market value of proper-
ty.
According to Tapper, Patrick de-
clares that this action proposed by
him will put enough taxable pro-
perty on the tax rolls, both by in-
creased valuation and more pro-
perty being put on the rolls, will,
in Patrick's opinion, give the School
Board the necessary money to
make much-desired improvements.
In addition to these actions by-
the GOCEA and the Tax Assessor,
Gulf County will be somewhat rich-
er property-wise next year than the
past few years due to the addition
of several pieces of taxable proper-
ty built this year. Several new and
rather expensive buildings have
been built in Port St. Joe, the sale
of individual lots at Ward Ridge
will bring in more taxes than the
whole plot of land would, the con-
struction of the Glidden Company
chemical plant here and other items
of real estate improvement .that will
increase the taxable property rolls.

Among early holiday arrivals
here will be Boyd Herbert Munn,

The 57 Po/7 ?/tic is


Americas Avumber Road Oar /


Months ago, Pontiac set its '57 sights on producing an engineering classic-the greatest
road car in automotive history! How well did they succeed? One answer is pictured here, the
all-new '57 Pontiac itself, a car so advanced in concept that other new cars
merely emphasize its outstanding design, its brilliant array of first-time features!
The other answer is the public's response to this road-ruling beauty. From every quarter of the
nation has come wave after wave of confirming praise! Praise for Pontiac's styling-its crisp,
colorful lines and flowing contours that accent beauty built in, not hung on!
Praise for new Level-Line Ride, the advanced suspension system that cradles you in cloud-soft
comfort. Praise for Pontiac's ease of handling! Praise for the brisk and eager response
of its all-new Strato-Streak V-8 engine! And underlying this tremendous voice of approval is
the confidence felt in a car which has undergone the greatest road test in history Pontiac's
grueling 100,000-Mile Marathon Run! Yes, this year it's Pontiac all the way!
Come in and see it! Come take the wheel of America's No.. 1 Road Car!

else on the road with
its dream-car ideas!
Here is one of those rare cars that,
in a single model changeover, redirects
the whole-course of automobile design.
The new Mercury makes a clean break
with the plump, bulging lines of many
of today's cars-presents a sleek,
clean-cut, dynamic look that's straight
out of tomorrow.





NEW! V-ANGLE TAIL-LIGHTS FROM
DREAM-CAR DRAWING BOARDS
-A stunning example of Mercury's
new Dream-Car Design. They help
dramatize Mercury's gleaming new
breadth and brawn. Mercury is now
over 6Y2 feet wide, more than 17VY
. feet long!
NEW! JET-FLO BUMPER-GRILLE
GIVES A MASSIVE BUT GRACEFUL
LOOK-New beauty with a purpose.
The unique new oval design acts as
a double bumper-provides both high
and low protection, front and back. -
NEW! SLIM, BRIDGE-STRONG
ROOF, MORE GLASS THAN EVER
-It spans the most spacious passenger
compartment in Mercury history. You
enjoy up to 829 square inches more
visibility. And Mercury is new in every-
thing else. You can get a power seat
that "remembers" your favorite driving
position. And there's a Power-Booster
Fan, in the Montclair series, that saves
horsepower other cars waste. And
much, much more. To see everything,
stop in at our showroom todnv.

Santa Pays Visit To


Quarters Monday


Seeking Local Aid

For Hungarians
By ERNEST C. WIMBERLY
Never before in the history of
the world have we witnessed such
courage as is now being demon-
strated by the Hungarian people
who are giving their lives, and
gladly so, and enduring unimagin-
able privation and suffering to try
to gain just a small portion of that
freedom and 1ibrty which we en-
joy day by day.
These brave people need help;
they are starving for want of food
and dying in droves for lack of
medical help. Can we in good con-
science enjoy this Christmas to the
fullest without knowing that we
have done something towards help-
ing these brave people?
If interested send or give your
contributions to Ernest C. Wimber-
ly or Mrs. Monica Ward, president
and secretary, respectively of the
American Red Cross Chapter of
Port St. Joe.
Leaves or Colorado
Mrs. Karil Marshall left the lat-
ter part of the week for Denver,
Colorado to be with her daughter,
Miss Kathryn Marshall, freshman
student at 'Colorado Women's Col.
lege. Mr. Marshall will join them
on December 22 and will spend the
Christmas holidays.
