The City of Port St. Joe, with
the aid of its new drag line is in
the process of digging a boat basin
and launching site at the foot of
Fifth Street to make a boat en-
trance to St. Joseph's Bay.
The channel is being dug deep
and long enough to provide ade-
quate facilities to load and unload
boats into the bay at low and high
Only the channel is being dug
now. Further development of the
boat basin will depend on how
much it is used.

Go Ahead Given
For Gas Pipeline
WASHINGTON, Officials of
two pipe line companies have stat-
ed they will go ahead with the $150
million gas pipeline in Florida de-
spite conditions imposed by the
Federal Power Commission.
[In a threeto'two decision the
iPFIC has authorized the Houston
Texaa Gas and Oil Corp. and the
Coastal Transmission Corp. to con-
istruct and operate a natural gas
pipeline from the Gulf Coast to
Florida. But the commission said
that within 3,0 days the companies
must "eliminate a number of ob-
jectionable features relating to traf-
fic and methods oft financing the
project." Officials of the two com-
panies said the conditions imposed
can and will be met.
Under the plan submitted to the
FIPC, the two companies will lay
about 2600 milee of main line and

last year, was named vice-obairmat.

CONTEST T OF ELECTION
DISMISSED BY COURTS
A contest of election filed by W.
C. Roche in connection with his
race for the County Commission
against A. J. Strickland of Wewa-
hitchka was dismissed by Judge E.
Clay Lewis, Jr., on January 2.
The suit was filed by Roche ac-
cusing that irregularities were per-
formed in the election and ballot

feat him by about a dozen votes.
Return From Colorado
Mr. and Mrs. Karl Marshall have
returned from Denver, Colo., where
they have been visiting their daugh.

days there and they all returned
Commissioner George Cooper be-
gan the nominating by naming Cos-
tin for the job. Commissioner A. J.
Strickland nominated Ben H. Dick-
ens and the fight was on.
Before the voting occurred for the
position, Ben H. Dickens took the
floor and declared that Costin was
ineligible to hold the job due to the
fact that he had been elected Rep-
resentative of Gulf County during
the November primary. Dickens
backed up his argument with three
sections of the Constitution of the
State of Florida. He quoted from
Section 7, Article 3, Section 15, Ar-
ticle 16 and Section 13 of Article
4. These articles, according to Dick-
ens arguments, provide that no
elected official in the State of Flor-
ida can hold another job that gives
pay in any part of government In
-the state. Section 7, Article 3, ac-
cording to Dickens provided that
anybody serving i'd the Legislature
who accepts such a job is no longer
a member of the Legislature. He
cited the fact that several coun-
ties In Florida had this very situa-
tion in force, but declared by the
Constitution it was illegal and urg-
ed the Commission to abide by the
[Dickens cited a case sent to the
Supreme Court y Gov.-Sidney J.
Gatts in 1.918 whereby a -State
Senator had accepted a position as
a county prosecuting attorney and
asked the Supreme Court what he
should do in this case. The Supreme
Court ruled that the man was no
longer a State Senator, by the pro-
vision of the Constitution. Dickens
declared that in this light it was
his opinion that the naming of Cos-
tin, to the position would jeopardize
his position as Representative.
Costing then took the floor and
urged the Commission to put off
naming the county prosecutor un-
til an opinion on the matter could
,be received from the Attorney Gen-
eral, Richard Ervin. He expressed
the opinion that he was eligible
to serve. He said that if the Com-
mission didn't want to wait for a
decision from the Attorney Gen-
eral, he would take the chance of
being ousted as Representative if
they would name him to the job.
Costin stated that he made 'iis
statement, with the confidence that
he would be found eligible,
.Much arguing went back and
forth on the subject but the above
is essentially what was said all
through the arguments.
Commissioner Harden expressed
a desire to wait upon an opinion
from the Attorney General. He
then asked the County Attorney,
David C. Gaskin for his opinion on
the legality of the matter. Gaskin
quoted the same passages as Dick-
ens and agreed with Dickens in-
terpretation of the matter.
Costin then pointed out other
instances where such a situation
was in existence naming Calhoun
and Franklin Counties where the
eame situation was in effect, with
State Representatives serving as
After all was over, the Commis-
sion decided to ask the Governor
to get a decision from the Supreme
Court on the matter and in the
meantime, Gaskin will serve as the
county prosecuting attorney in ad-
dition to his duties as county at-

THIS IS THE BIG M: FOR
Congressman Bob Sikes Is Sworn In
To Begin Ninth Term From 3rd Dist.
WASHINGTON, D. C.-Congress-
man Bob Sikes of Crestvlew was
sworn in by Speaker Sam Rayburn
for a Ninth Term in Congress at
the opening session of the 85!h
Congress on Wednesday. Since then
he has been busily engaged in the
many responsibilities connected
with the opening of Congress and
the organization of his office to
handle its duties.
Sikes, who worked from his
Crestview offiQe during the Recess
with speaking engagements in prac-
tically every oity and town in the
District in addition to many state-
wide assignments, predicted that
this session of Congress will be a
particularly interesting one. He an-
ticipates a harmonious session, but
one made difficult by the heavy
responsibilities ot'world problems.
"Difficulties which have become
seriously aggravated in the Middle
East pose the greatest problem of
'the moment," he said. "A firm
American policy is imperative. Very
probably some adaptation of the
President's program must now be
adopted to prevent further 'Soviet
gains in that area. At the same
time the President's policy is one
which, if mishandled, could involve
us in war at any moment. His pro-
posals must be considered very
carefully and safeguards for the
good of America must also be in-

"YOUTHS AND DRIVING"
We would like to take this space and opportunity to
toss a few bouquets to the police department of our city for their
concentrated efforts to curb speeding and unsafe driving in our
city. EvenThough their drive has been in force only a few short
weeks, already visible results are evident that the pace of traffic
and the flagrant violations of the rules of the road in our city
have been curtailed considerably.
Although the police have been effective in curbing some
of the traffic, the fact that only patrol car is available to the
city, their effectiveness is limited in traffic control work.
Nobody knows this any better than some teen-agers in
'our city especially at night. We know* of this first hand
since about half the night last Friday night was spent racing and
squalling tires around our neighborhood over on Marvin and
Garrison Avenues. The police knew about it and they were
there, but the patrol was on duty elsewhere. If the patrol car
had been available, it would be a hopeless task to stop a half
dozen cars scratching off in a dozen different directions. But
license numbers were taken and parents will be notified.
We have no idea that all the boys were observed by the
authorities. We believe that it is the duty of the parents of this
city to see that their children drive like they should or forbid
them the use of the family car. The ranks of speeding youthful
drivers is growing in Port St. Joe with leaps and bounds. We
know that parents don't want their cars torn up or worse still,
we know that they don't want their children to kill themselves
or others. It is bound to happen sooner or later if the practice
We have a hunch that the parents of children speeding
and driving dangerously know or suspect that their children are
involved. The wear and tear from such driving of an automobile
will show up. We urge the parents of these youths to take mea-
sures to see that they straighten up and drive right.
Chief of Police Buck Griffin has stated to the editor
that after the parents have been notified, reckless driving youths
are going to be picked up and placed under arrest, possibly to
spend some time in the local callaboose on top of having to pay
a stiff fine. There just might possibly be something in it for the
We had just as well make up our minds that this dan-
gerous practice must stop immediately and do our best to co-
operate with the authorities to see that it~is stopped before dras-
tic action has to be taken.
Or even worse, before someone is killed or maimed for
"LET'S FINISH THE JOB"
This is the theme announced by March of Dimes head-
quarters here for the campaign that will be carried on through
The "job" it two-fold: To raise funds for repair of the
damage that polio has done to thousands of Americans in the past
and to prevent the disease from crippling more thousands in the
March of Dimes spokesmen explain that an estimated
80,000 persons have been left handicapped by polio, throughout
the length and breadth of the United States; and they point out
that the job of conquering the disease cannot be considered fin-
ished until these patients have been helped to regain normal and
The second objective of the campaign is to promote the
widest possible use of the Salk vaccine, which was developed
under March of Dimes sponsorship, and which has been proven
safe and effective many millions of times over.
Commenting on the 16,000 cases of polio reported in
1956, Basil O'Connor, president of the March of Dimes organi-
"We of the March of Dimes are determined that 1957
shall not see a repetition of the polio record of 1956. Even so, we
know there will be attacks of the disease, and we must provide
for the care of all who need it."
"We must also remember," Mr. O'Connor added, "those
persons for whom the vaccine came too late. When we give to
the March of Dimes, we are helping those who need help and
protecting those who don't."

Harland Pridgeon, Gulf tax col
lector and leader of the movement
to have a dam constructed in the
Dead Lakes, levelled charges three
weeks ago that caused Dead Lakes
water level to fall to such an extent
that most former fishing grounds
were now dry.
Col. Harold Bisbort, district en-
gineer, denied these charges In a
letter to Pridgeon.
"The charges do not take inIo

1954, P155 and 1956 streamflows on
the Citl;ola River and the ApDaachi-
co.a River have been substant: .v

'This situation is not due to the
construction or operation of tho
dam but to deficient rainfall. The
carrnen: dry cycle is the most ex-
treme since streamflow records
were initiated in 1,28."
Bisbort said, by way of illustra-
tion, that the Chipola River a* Al-
tha has an average flow of 1 500
cubic feet per second, based on 20
years of records. In 1954, the aver-
age flow was 1,264 C.F:S. and in
1955 only 613.
On the Apalachicola River, Bis-
bort said, the flow for January of
1956 was over 70 per cent below the
normal January flow for the past
"Insufficient inflow into the Dead
Lakes by the Chipola River has
been the controlling factor in the
decrease at Dead Lakes", the
Engineer declared. "The Chipola
River, -which is the main source of
inflow into the Dead Lakes, is in no
way affected by the: operation of

From The Ravenswood News,
Ravenswood, W. Va.: If all the
speeders on the highways today
would take a long look at the cost
of speed they just might change
their ways. Or does a wild-eyed
speeder ever change until he is
parked on a slab in a mortuary or
on a bed in a hospital?
Speed is the Number One Kill-
er. It costs in death and property
loss. It also costs so far as the
operation of' a motor vehicle is
Now this is not fantasy. Here
are some facts.
At 65 miles an hour out on the
open highway, a speed which is
illegal in West Virginia, most
automobiles use 30 per cent more
gasoline than they do at 40 miles
per hour. Tire wear is two and
one half times as great and oil
consumption is actually doubled.
These facts were given to us by
the West Virginia State Police and
they know whereof they speak.
Out in Kansas City a few years
ago, some tests were made by the'
American Automobile Association.
It was actually learned that you
don't gain a bit of time by driv-
ing fast in cities, in congested traf-
Cars traveled eight miles in con-
gested traffic. Those going 25 miles
an hour had only one stop (for
traffic light) to every five stops
made by cars going 35 miles per
hour. The gas consumption on the
slower cars was 23 per cent less.
We could go on with 'real sta-
tistics and prove speed is expen-
sive in the operation of your car
but that's not the only high cost.
Death, injury and destroyed prop-
erty is expensive, too..
From the Herington Advertiser-
Times, Herrington, Kansas: We
frequently hear people in public

One hand-and huge new govern-
ment spending programs on the
Actually, both proposals could be
undertaken-by such expedients as
an extreme "soft money" policy
and by turning loose the presses
that print the currency.
. If that should happen, what
.would the results be? Secretary
of the Treasury Humphrey an-
swered with these words:: "This
. is the policy of deliberate in-
flation and must result in a return
to a budget unbalanced by sever-
al billion dollars, with all of the
inflationary pressures that it would
create." Then we'd have more dol-
lars in circulation, but each of
them would become progressive-
ly less valuable-and if the pro-
gram were carried to its logical
end, would become worthless.

Leave it to the station wagon leader to make
the big news for '571 And what news! Wagons
so big, so full of fine-car prestige that you'll
wonder how it can be done at low Ford prices.
If your choice is the Country Squire, you'll
be proud to pull up at the finest places in this
new glamour wagon with its wood-like trim.
If your needs call for a 6-passenger wagon
with four doors, you'll love the new Country
Sedan. It has almost nine feet of loadspace-
nearly a foot more than ever-before.
There's still another 4-door Country
Sedan. It has the extra third seat for 9-passen-

you have the new single:control handle
which opens both the wrap-around liftgate
and tailgate with one motion. And they
can't be opened from inside!
There's good news, too, about Ford's
popular Ranch Wagon. This 6-passenger,
2-door model features Ford's new subdued
tones, and smart interiors which'defy muddy
little shoes and drippy chocolate cones.
In the wonderful way that Ford can take
a fine thing and make it even finer, the Del

The pretrial conferences between
opposing attorneys and Federal
Judge Dozier Devane will help nar-
row the issues for the trial begin-
ning Jan. 14.
The case pits R. E. Crummer of
the Crummer Co., an investment
house, against Ed Ball and the
Florida duPont interests, the state's
leading banking and industrial or-
Crummer seeks the 30 million
dollar award on the ground the
duPont interests conspired to de-
stroy his multimillion dollar bond
business in Florida in 1940 by a
series of state and federal investi-
The du.Pont interests deny the
charges and have made some coun-
ter claims of their own against
Crummer. A counter suit for six
million dollars brought against
Crummer by the duPont interests
was dismissed some time back.
The case was filed in December
1949 and has been in and out of the
courts since that time. The record
in the case now runs into several
hundred thousand words and hun-
dreds of exhibits overflow two huge
filing cabinets in the office of the
U. S. district court clerk.
Crummer, who formerly lived in
Orlando and now resides part time
pany handled 50 million dollars
worth of county road and bridge
district refunding bonds.
These refunding bonds were nec-
essary, he said, to eliminate "chaos"
in the state after collapse of the
1925 land boom.
iCrummer and some of his assoc-
iates were indicted on charges of
mail fraud and violation of the se-
curities act in 1944 but these indict-
ments were dismissed in 1946.
Defendants in the case are Ball,
who is rated one of Florida's weal-
thiest and most powerful men; his
sister, Mrs. Jessie Ball duPont, the
Florida National' Bank of Jackson-
ville and Albert Dent as trustees of
