members of the Allied Chemical

In his short talk to the Chamber
of 'Commerce Tuesday night, Presi-
dent C. M. Brown related how Sauin-
ders had "apologized" for the rot-
ten winter weather we were having
in Port St. Joe Tuesday-after
Brown had just arrived from the
five degree cold of New York City.
He regretted that the sunset on St.
Joseph's Bay put on such a sorry
show Tuesday night and assured
the visiting gentlemen that every-
day in Port St. Joe is not like
We can vouch for his statement.

We are glad that Mr. Brown left
town yesterday morning before all
the "good" winter days came back
to Port St. Joe.
And what better day than Tues-
day could the man have picked to

Don Sports tells us that we
are an outcast among Port St.
Joe society.-We didn't go see
Elvis Presley in his movie.
We had to confess to Don that
for some reason or other Elvis
just didn't "send" us. We just
couldn't get "cool" over his offer-
ings, but could manage to get
"cold" over his gyrations. Maybe
he or I one have something wrong
with one or the other of us that
makes us so uncompatible.

17 Speeding Cases
Tried In One Week
17 cases of speeding were
on the docket of the police-
court Monday for speeding.
This reflects the recent crack-
down on speeding and traffic
violations instigated by the
City Commission and the po-
lice department, e
These 15 oases were made
in the period of one week. No
case were protested and
bonds forfeited by all violat-
These cases do not include
the many motorists who were
given warnings for running of
stop signs and other viola-
The police department re-
ports that it is giving warn-
ings the first violation on mi-
nor infractions. Cases are be-
ing made against speeders on
the first violation.
Chief of Police H. W. Grif-
fin reports that the intensifi-
cation of controlling speeding
in the city has reduced that
hazard a considerable amount
and predicts that speeding
will be all but eliminated in
a few weeks,

Swept-Wing Dodge... only 4 feet low anl all dynamite
Step into the wonderful world of AUTODYNAMICS
It breaks through the vibration barrier!
It unleashes a hurricane of power
It tames a tornado of torque
It is swept-wing mastery of motion
Right off the bat, you'll realize there's something
entirely different about driving the new Swept-Wing
Dodge. You know it's the slickest piece of live
action you've ever driven. The most responsive and
easiest handling, too.
But the thing that really hits you is the silence!
Why, all the irritating noises, all the annoying road
sounds common to- automobiles have vanished!
For Autodynamics has introduced a revolutionary
new suspension system Dodge Torsion-Aire -
that cushions you in a "Realm of Silence." Thick
cushions of "live rubber" isolate engine vibration,
noise and road shock at its source.
Actually, everything is new in the Swept-Wing
Dodge from new race car torsion bars to new
Push-Button TorqueFlite, from new 310 hp. V-8
:engine to new Total-Contact Brakes.
This is Autodynamics in action yours in the
most exciting car that's ever come up the pike.

Think this big, brawny beauty would fetch a fancy figure? Not the Chieftain. It's made to order
