Port St. Joe The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Ghattahoochee Valley"
VOLUME XX Single Copy Beo -ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THUiRSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1957 NUMBER 24
by WES.LEY R. RAMSEY
Last Friday night we followed
a -number of Port St. Joe resi-
dents to Chipley to view the
basketbt4l tournament and, much
to our sorrow, see the local team
get beat by an inferior team.
As if that wasn't enough, we
went around to see the 'Earl of
Chipley'-Earl Sellars, publisher
of the Washington County News.
Earl has the people of Chipley
well informed as to his position
around the newspaper. We pul-
led into a service station and
asked the lady attendant if she
knew where the "Earl" could be
found. She said, "You mean the
publisher?" Now how abouttthat.
She didn't say "the newspaper-
man", the town printer", "the
editor" "the man down at the
newspaper" or any of these les-
ser menial tasks-it was "the pub-
lisher"-the loftiest position in
the Fourth Estate. Of course you
know where that "Fourth Estate"
business comes from. There's
only four of those "Estates" and
the newspaper business is the
last rung on the ladder.
Anyhow, we found out that
-we are not the only one that has
to work at night, dueto Uncle
Sam and other demands on the
financial end of the business.-
The "Earl of Chipley" was at the
We found Earl to have the
kind of shop we are trying to
have someday. The only rub was
that we figured When we got it
the night work would be finish-
ed.- But here was the F.arl"
down at the office at night.
It seems that the "Earl of
Chipley" had been up here to
Port St. Joe last Sunday to see
us and we missed tracks. The
wife and children are gone and
we had caught up on the read-
ing Sunday afternoon and was
out scouting around to try and
find something to'take a picture
of. So we missed each other. He
blessed us out regally for not
staying at home and having a
little bite to eat fl[ed when he
comes: We put him on notice to
let us know the next time and
we would "kill the fatted calf".
The groundhog saw his sha-
dow in Port St. Joe and we just
don't rightly know if that means
six more weeks of winter or six
weeks of good weather. Well, no
matter. Whichever one it was,
we are getting the first two
weeks of the good weather.
Whether the ground hog signs
were for spring or not we pre-
dict that spring is here. We base
our reasoning on good sound
signs. Not the budding of the
trees nor the sprouting of the
grass or the chirping of the bird.
Anyone can see these signs and
recognize them right away.
Our prediction comes from a,
little more subtle sign.'- Friday
we were delivering some print-
ing to the hospital and saw sev-
eral boys swimming in that good
pool that George Tapper dug out
Sin Pattens Bayou. We used
to swim there too when we were
a boy. It was a little, less popu-
lated then and our swimming at-
tire was slightly different from
the present swimmers. There
was no Monument Avenue span-
ning the bayou then and one
had a little privacy. These boys
had on swim suits.

Parking Fine Boxes
The City of Port St. Joe this week
inaugurated a new parking fine pay-
ment system. Previously the finz,*
were mailed or brought to the City
Hall for payment
The city has now installed pay-
ment boxes, on i'acl. corner in town
erected on parking meter posts.
The boxes are yellow. Now, if you
receive a parking ticket, you should
enclose the fine inside, and drop it
into the special boxes or take the
envelope and the fine to the City
Hall. People are urged not to mail
the fines, as in the past.

TRIPLE-ACTION RESERVE POWER!
S Simply nudge thi accelerator beyond the nimark
and you "call out the reserves"! The J-2 Rocket
then operates on three dual carburetors! J-2 is
available now at a modest extra cost. Try it!
Engineers have dreamed for years of an
engine that combined exceptional horsepower
and torque potential with outstanding fuel
economy in normal operation.
And today, Olds has it in the new J-2
Rocket.* You'll find it's like two engine-,
under the hood!
In your day-to-day driving, you enjoy
the smooth, alert action of the Rocket-with
the fuel economy of dual-jet carburetion and
a 10-to-i compression ratio. But to meet the
exceptional driving situation, just open the
accelerator beyond the 3/4 point and two
additional carburetors automatically jet into
action. There's an instant boost in torque and
power. You'll appreciate the immediate re-
sponse as another Olds contribution to your
pleasure and safety at the wheel!

WHY FIRMS SEEK SMALL TOWNS
A national weekly newspaper recently reported on the
trend of big business to move its new plants into smaller towns.
The report was highly enlightening.
Ane firm which had operated in a large metropolitan
area for half a century has recently erected plants in two small
communities and the company head reports That the concern is
delighted with the results.
In the first place, he said, the business had been virtually
unknown in the large city and workers were not in touch with
the needs of people in smaller towns who used the product
manufactured. In the small towns, where the two new plants
were opened, citizens were eager to have the new, plants locate
in their community and helped raise money for the buildings, on
a loan basis, and took a great interest in the business enterprise.
They were happy, contented, good workers and had the interest
of the business at heart.
Labor relations in such a plant, and in a community
which appreciates the location of such a plant, are the best.
These are the reasons in brief, why so many big cor-
porations are building plants in the nation's smaller communities.
This is good for the nation and produces good management-labor
relations, and for that reason the trend will probably accelerate
in the coming years.
Port St. Joe, like other small towns, -as well as cities in
Florida, is hoping that "lightning will strike again" and one of
these days another good-sized firm will locate here. We offer
many advantages, but the best asset we have is the friendliest
people in the world and a spirit of cooperation that is unbeatable.

coient inflow- into the Dead Lakes

controlling factor in the decrease
;of the state at Dead Lakes. The
Chipola River, which is the main
source of inflow- into the .Dead
Lakes, is in no way affected by the
operation of Jim Woodruff lock
It is true that a complete closure
of the gates at Jim Woodruff .19ck
and dam would contribute to a de-
crease in the stage of the Dead
Lakes. Therefore, the closure plan
that has been adopted provides
that, 'during filling, the outflow

cubic feet per- second, which is suf-
ficient to maintain a stage of 6.1

maintain at Blountstown.
-"Should the inflow into the Jim
Woodruff reservoir dro below 12,-

reservoir is being filled, then all
the inflow will be passed and no
water stored. This plan was care-
fully followed when the Jim Wood-
ruff reservoir was filled to its pres-
efit level in March of 195'5 during
a period of high river flow.
"Since then, all inflow into the
reservoir has been discharged into
the Apalachicola River. A tery
