Band Boosters Say
Uniforms Are Paid For

Henry C'l.i,.-ii, president of the
Band Boosters Association, announ-
ced this week that final payment
has just been made on all new band
uniforms, and this includes the
majorette uniforms that the Assoc-
iation had assumed responsibility
for.
The entire organization desires
to take this opportunity to thank
everyone, and especially the mer-
chants of this entire area who have
been so generous and helpful to
the high school band at all times,
and to wish all patrons and friends
of the band a very happy holiday
season.

eels received from other offices for
delivery to patrons in this city.
Costin stated that since the can-
celing machine used during last
Christmas season did not tabulate
the count of mail cancelled, he does
not have a comparison for the same
period last year but believes a con-
servative estimate would put the
volume 10 to 12 per cent above last
year.
He wished again to express his
appreciation and that of the entire
staff to all patrons of the Post Of-
fice for their consideration in mail-
ing early and tying their cards in
bundles labeled "Local" and "Out
of Town Delivery", also to encour-
age the use of 3c stamps on Christ-
mas cards which are mailed after
this date to assure that they will
get first class handling and be de-
livered before Christmas.
He wants especially to wish ev-
eryone a very merry Christmas and
a happy and prosperous New Year.


A stern letter to the police department by the city com-
mission this week set that body on notice that they were to take
all steps necessary to stop unnecessary speeding by automobiles
within the city limits of Port St. Joe. The letter said in effect,
that the situation had gone as far as could be tolerated and was
making for a state of danger on the city streets of Port St. Joe.
The department was ordered to immediately take all the necessary
steps, including warnings and arrests to put a stop to the violation
of the speed laws within the city.
The letter said, and we quote, "It is observed that the
people have no regard whatsoever for their speed and especially
in the more congested areas on all streets in the city the par-
ents of this city are setting the examples for their children and a
great many of their children are running wild insofar as the law is
concerned." The letter was signed by J. L. Sharit as Mayor of
the city.
The Star considers it a pity that grown people should
have to be referred to in such a manner. But the law in question
is being so flagrantly violated that no other than harsh steps can
be taken with any success. It is a pity that grown, adult people,
with constant reminders every day in the newspapers of what
automobiles can do to people, must be forced into behaving on
the streets. It is a pity that they must be "tamed" when they get
behind the wheel and become something other than the ordinary
law-abiding citizens that they normally are.
We are quick to admit that speed alone doesn't cause all
the accidents. But we will be the first to admit that speed has
the determining factor as to how bad an accident can be.
In this day of constant reminder through the press, ra-
dio and television of the equation that automobiles plus speed
equals death, it is childish on the part of the motoring public for
such a stern order to be issued. We can understand a p9lice-
man's reluctance to arrest a man for the "negligible" offense of
speeding, especially at the holiday season, but it has been brought
on ourselves by our own careless attitudes toward speed and auto-
mobile travel.
We would especially urge you to wake -:f- to the danger
of speeding in a crowded city at this holiday season. If you don't
care about yourself, there might be someone close to you who
just might want you around over Christmas anyhow and poss-
ibly a while longer. So why not act your age and ease up on that
gas pedal. Live a little longer and enjoy life.
No quarter will be given. If you are seen speeding by
the police, you will be pulled in. They have orders to do this
of the most imperative nature, and it will have to be done. So
if you don't want to be arrested, we would advise that you slow
down to a safe and sane speed.

Santa Claus is all set, according
to recent word from his headquar-
ters, to make his second visit of
the month to the children of Port
St. Joe and talk with them.
(Santa is being brought to town
as an annual project of the Aotary
Club of Port St. Joe. Along within
Santa's visit, the Rotary will pro-
vide sacks of candy and goodies
for all the children who come to
visit with Santa Claus.
(Santa will come into town by his
trusty fire wagon mount and will
do a little parading about town ba-
fore he lights at the city park
across from the Motel St. Joe at
3:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
As was stated in last week's pa-
per, Santa was to have been here
this afternoon, but a last minute
change in his schedule forced him
to change his visit date to Satur-
day.
Santa sends a special invitation
to all the children in Port St. Joe
to be sure and be on hand to talk
with him Saturday and get on the
list, tell Santa what you want and
just have a good chat with the
round gentleman.
The Rotarians will be busy Fri-
day night preparing the sacks of
favors for the children coming to
their Christmas party honoring the
old gentleman.

of the activities being sponsored

Discussion Held

On Repairing

Centennial

At the regular meeting of the City
Commission Tuesday night it was
brought before the Commission by
Commissioner 'Chandler that the
roof and the floor at the Centen-
nial Building were in a bad state
of repair and should be tended to
at once.
Commissioner Chandler was au-
thorized to look into the situation
and report his findings back to the
Commission.
'SPEED CRACK-DOWN
Mayor Sharit reported to the
Commission that much speeding on
the part of automobiles was being
observed in the city and that he
thought it should be stopped, by
force if necessary.
The Mayor pointed out that sev-
eral warnings have been issued con-
cerning excessive speeding, but it
had gone unheeded. He recommend-
ed that the Commission put the
police department to work stopping
speeding in the city by any means
at their disposal, including arrest.
The Commission agreed with this
recommendation and charged the
police department with that re-
sponsibility. It was pointed out to
the department that a possible bad
holiday accident might occur in
Port St. Joe during the coming hol-
iday season if something isn't done
at once.
FINE BOXES
The City Commission agreed
Tuesday night to install several
buxes on parking n iter posts, ap-
town to take fines owed by people
for overparking.
There will be one such box in
each block to receive the fine en-
velopes. The boxes will 'be fitted
on the parking meter post and will
be painted yellow.
Formerly it has been necessary,
when receiving a parking ticket to
go to the post office and mail the
fine or go by the city hall to pay it.
After the boxes are installed, those
overparking need only drop their
fine, in the envelope provided on
the parking ticket, into the yellow
box provided for that purpose.


Mrs. D. Thomas

Resigns From Her

Hospital Post

Mrs. Dottie Thomas handed in
her letter of resignation as direc-
tor of the Municipal Hospital at
the City Commission meeting Tues-
day night.
'Mrs. Thomas' resignation will be-
come effective on December 31. She
has accepted a position with the
Adams Hospital in Panama City.
Mrs. Thomas finished one year of
service at the hospital last month.
During her period as manager of
the institution, it has seen many
material improvements and for the
first time in its history, the hospi-
tal has operated in the black while
making physical improvements to
the hospital itself. Foremost of
these improvements was a new
$12,000.00 x-ray machine which was
completely paid for this year,
In addition, the hospital has been
repainted inside and much work
has been done to provide more bed
space, including the converting of
the sun porches into hospital
rooms.
During the past year, tentative
plans have been drawn up for the
enlargement of the hospital but
they have not been officially ap-
proved by the City Commission as
yat.

If you think it looks new...




I wait till you drive it!


...For there's where Ford's newness really pays off
...in melting mountains.. in smoothing the bumps
...In straightening the curves

You can see that Ford's longer, lower Sculptured Look
makes other cars look downright old-fashioned. But the
part you can't see-the new "Inner Ford"-is what shows
its stuff when you drive a Ford. It's revolutionary from the
wheels upl And it feels it.
Ford's wider frame lets you sit sweet and low. And
Ford's new front suspension, rear springs and new easy
handling are part of the scheme to make you think every
road is cloud-smooth.
The magic touch of the new Ford power plants makes
mountains disappear. What looks like uphill feels like
downhill. You get this surging power in a wide choice of
f \ Silver Anniversary V-8 engines. Or choose Ford's Mileage
.. Maker Six, the most powerful Six in the low-price field.
' .... There's magic in Ford's price tag, tool You won't believe
this big new Ford is still priced Ford-low. But it is. Come
in and test its magic. It's a real "Wizard of Ah-h-h-h's!"

FHP GiVes Warning of
Holiday Traffic Deaths
TAJLLAHASSEE The Florida
Highway Patrol today warned pe-
destrians against walking behind
an arm load of Christmas bundles
into the path of a death-dealing mo.
tor vehicle.
iComdr. H. N. Kirkman suggested
that a little forethought on the part
of the shopping pedestrian might
provide him with the required fore-
sight to keep out of a serious acci-
dent.
Thousands of people will flit here
and there on last minute shopping
binges and some of them are bound
to shoot right into the path of trou-
ble if they aren't careful," said
Kirkman.
"Those last minute shopping
sprees can lead to disaster if the
person involved doesn't plan to
obey the rules of safety. Darting
from behind parked cars into busy
thoroughfares andl walking against
traffic signs an signals, is certala-
ly no way to avoid an accident.
Yel, a lot of people will break all
safety rules an dsome may not live


to redminber what they did Wton&,'
From the files of the Department
of Public Safety, comes the fasts:
45 persons died and 733 were in.

Holland Receives

Award From The

Farm Bureau Fed.

Senator Spessard Holland became
the first Floridian to receive the
American Farm Bureau Distinguish-
ed Service Award last Tuesday.
The honor was conferred on the
veteran Florida Democrat at a cere-
mony in the Municipal Auditorium
at Miami Beach, where over 6,000
Farm Bureau members and officials
were attending their 38th annual
convention.
In making the presentation,
Charles B. Shuman, Federation
president, recited Holland's long
and distinguished service to agri-
culture-and recognized his strong
sponsorship of the flexible price
support program included in the
Agricultural Act of 1954 and retain-
e din the Farm Act of 1956. He also
commended the Floridian for .his
diligent efforts on behalf of Ameri-
can farm families in the last ses-
sion of Congress during which he
handled as a sub-committee chair-
man all legislation affecting federal
programs of farm financing, at the
same time continuing the fight to
eliminate agricultural surpluses
which he termed a sword at the
throat of American farmers.
Receiving the award Holland
said: "I know of no honor which
could come to me in the field of
agriculture which I would apprec-
iate so much. However, I consider
this as much an honor for all Flor-
ida as I do for myself as an indi-
vidual.
"So long as .this great organiza-
tion continues to stand for those
around American principles that it
has traditionally espoused Ameri-
can agriculture will continue to pro-
duce a preponderant number of men
distinguished in every field of en-
deavor.
"In, my ten years in the United
States Senate, one of the greatest
sources of happiness has been that


my deep rooted views on agricul-
tural matters so frequently coin-
cided with those of. this group.
iSenator Holland is third ranking
member of the Senate committee
on Agriculture and Forestry. He is
regarded as one of the best inform-
ed members of the Senate on farm
matters. His other major assgin-
ment is to the Appropriations com-
mittee where he ocupies several
important sub-committee responsi-
bilities affecting agriculture, com-
merce and public works.

Not too many years ago, a doctor had
to rely almost entirely on his own
judgment in diagnosing an illness-
then prescribe from the few available
drugs and medicines.
Today, doctors rely upon modern sci-
entific laboratory tests which pin-
point the nature of an illness. A
wealth of new drug discoveries are
available to bring quicker recovery.
Thus, modern medical and phar-
maceutical sciences are helping
physicians perfect their practice of
medicine.
