To Head Boat Club
A meeting of the newly-organized
St. Joe Boat Club was held last
Wednesday night at the American
Legion Home with the by-la~ws and
new officers of the organization be-
ing approved and elected. .
Officers elected to serve the first
year of the club's operations were:
E. P. Lapeyrouse, Commodore; Au-
brey R. Tomlinson, Vice-Commo-
dore and Sammy Parker, secretary
and treasurer. The board of direc-
tors consists of J. Lamar Miller,
Paul S. Fensom, David H. Jones,
Watson Smith and J. T. Simpson.
A membership committee was ap-
pointed with C. W. Long as chair-
man and S. L. Barke, J. Lamar

ed with John Clements as chairman.
The first cruise of the club has been
planned for March 10. A director's

All boating enthusiasts interested
in joining the club should contact
any officer of the club and pay the
annual dues. Aubrey Tomlinson,
who has been handling the publici-

to join. All that is needed is the
$5.00 to pay the annual dues.
The club plans many activities
for the coming year, and the mem-

will be more than well spent for
the recreation and enjoyment the
members will' receive through the

Draw Bridge At Highland View
To Close Two Days Next Week
It was announced this week that the draw bridge
at Highland View over the Intra-Coastal Canal will be
closed to highway traffic, Tuesday and Wednesday,
February 26, and 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST.
A previous announcement said that the bridge
would be closed all next week. Intervention by Mayor
J. L, Sharit and officials of industry located in Port St.

that the bridge will be out of commission.
People are urged to take notice of this second
closing date and disregard the previous announcements
that the bridge would be closed all week.
During the period of time that the Highland
View bridge will be closed to traffic, all traffic between
Port St. Joe and Panama City will be detoured from
Beacon Hill via Overstreet to Wewahitchka and then
to Port St. Joe.

Rev. Harry Punt again addressed
the Port St. Joe Kiwanis Club at
their regular weekly meeting Tues-
day at the Motel St. Joe.
Mr. Punt used as his subject,
"What Can We Get Out of Africa".
He dwealt in his talk, with the ex-
ploitation by foreign powers upon
the peoples of Africa. He described
the continent as a country of great
wealth containing diamonds, gold,
and many other precious metals,
jewels and minerals. Punt describ-
ed how for years, foreign countries
had drained the wealth from Africa
without putting anything back. He
explained that even though the
populace as a whole was ignorant,
they were beginning to realize the
fact that they are "being taken" by
several of their foreign "benefac-
tors". Punt blamed Mau Mau in-

Are We Creating A 'Speed Trap"? homeram
The City Commission of Port St. Joe and the police de- Butlers, A
apartment, have undertaken the job of improving the driving as closed
habits of Port St. Joe motorists. They were asked to do it and The next
they are doing an effective job of catching the violators of the at the ho
city's traffic laws.
If a policeman catches you running a stop sign now, The W
it just automatically costs you $5.00. If you are caught speeding artist
it will set you back $25.00. These fines will neither make nor Monday \
break the motorists of the city, provided they don't collect too gram, wi
many of them. The group
The talk that is getting around will make -or break the Scripture
city, though. We understand that in neighboring towns, Port St. buck, tal
Joe is becoming known as a "speed trap". We don't think that it Harbuck
is a speed trap, but still the name is growing, according to rumors.
We want the -traffic laws obeyed, but we don't relish
the thought of having the "speed trap" enigma attached to our
reputation. We must have the speed regulated. Traffic man-
ners in the City was getting to be practically non-existant. Sev- WA
eral local people have been caught disobeying the rules and have
paid their fines. To date nobody 'has complained too severely,
locally anyhow. But we musn't get the name of a "speed trap".
We are sure the City Commission can work this out.
We feel' that they, too, hesitate at attaching such a stigma to Elec
the name of the.city. It is a ticklish situation, enforcing the speed
and rule of the road laws without creating the ugly adjective
to a city. But somehow it must be done. (
Possibly the best solution to the problem would be for D
every motorist to make himself a personal traffic policeman in |
charge of his own driving habits and see that he, himself, obeys
the traffic laws of the city. In this way, we feel that the laws will
be obeyed and the ugly words "speed trap'" will be removed.
