A-trip to the kitchen proved
George to be speaking true. He
not only had running water in
his 'cabin' but a choice of hot
or cold as well.

We appreciate the many in-
quiries as to the wife's condi-
tion during her vacation from
me and the kids in the hospital.
She is doing fine and is due to
leave the hospital this week end.
It will probably be another two
or three weeks before she can
make the return trip back home.
'Meanwhile the family can-
opener is "catching it".


The rules of that hospital she
is in makes us appreciate the
hospital here whether or not
it breaks even financially. i
Before entering the wife in the
hospital (doubled over from an
acute attack of appendicitis) it
was necessary to lay $100.00 ir
their hand eyen before she could
be pgf tp bed. That's pretty
heartless.
Without the $100.00 she could
not have been admitted. We
were a witness to that Saturday.
We were in Macon visiting the
wife in the hospital when a sick
man came to the hospital to
gain entrance. He didn't have
the $100.00 so he didn't get in.
That would never happen
here. And whether the hospital
loses money or not, we are glad
it doesn't happen here.

Birthdays Are The
Rage This Week

A rash of birthdays burst upon
the scene this week With three of
The Star's regular advertisers ob-
serving anniversary dates.
The oldest resident, in terms of
residence here in Port St. Joe is
the Danley Furniture Company
which is celebrating its 34th anni-
versary. The company 'has spent
half of these years in Port St. Joe.
Next in length of residence here
is Boyles Department Store which
is celebrating its 11th anniversary
wtth the customary birthday agle,
Probably the oldest company, but
the youngest in Port St. Joe of the
three, is the Piggly Wiggly chain
of Super Markets which is celebrat-
ing its anniversary this week. The'
local super market is owned by
the Dykes brothers, 0. C. and Nix-,


All sponsors are to recommend a
manager for their team either at
this meeting or prior to it.
A sample uniform is at Austin-
Atchison Company and uniforms
will be ordered this week. Coy
Williams has been- appoiiitod pur-
chasing agent. Earl Atchison will
be official score-keeper and statis-
tician,
Work is being done on the new
playing field and It is hoped that
it will be ready soon. It is absolute-
ly necessary to have this field com-
pleted before practice and tryouts
can be held. It will be unsafe for
150 boys to practiceon on one field.
All persons interested in helping
Little Boys Baseball please attend
Monday night's meeting. This invi-
tation particularly applies to volun-
teer umpires, directors, prospective

TO ADVERTISERS-In case of error or omissions in advertisements, the publishers
do not hold themselves liable for damage further than amount received for such
advertisement.
The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word is thoughtfully
weighed. The spoken word barely asserts, the printed word thoroughly convinces.
The spoken word is lost; the printed word remains.


Why People Go Out of Town
No one can be blamed for stretching a dollar as far as
it will go. However, it is difficult to understand the person who
spends two dollars to stretch one.
Every community has a sizable number of penny-con-
scious shoppers who will travel from twenty to fifty miles in
search of a bargain. Such buying is usually unwise and wasteful.
The cost of the trip is likely to run higher than any fancied sav-
ings. Also ,a careful check of local stores would often reveal that
a better price could be obtained here at home.
We can not question the loyalty or good intentions of
local citizens who rush off to larger cities to make major pur-
chases. They believe that they are practicing sound economics.
And they may have some reason for their actions.
For, quite often our local people know more about the
goods available in the metropolitan stores than they do about theI
goods in the stores here at home because of the extensive adver-
tising originating in the larger trade centers.
Retail advertising from larger cities is constantly coming
into every community' in the form of catalogs, circulars and in
regional newspapers. When local merchants do not counter the
out-of-town advertising, it is natural for some shoppers to believe
that the goods and services they seek cannot be obtained locally.
Despite the aggressiveness of distant competition, the
local merchant has a distinct advertising advantage -- the
local newspaper. No advertising medium used by non-local re-
tailers covers our trade area so thoroughly and at such low cost
as your local newspaper.
Thus, before the local retailer becomes too critical of
out-of-town shopping, he should ask himself if he has given his
potential customers enough shopping information to keep them
at home.


A Stranger Recognizes Our Potential
Again it is called to our attention that Port St. Joe has
a vital link toward future industrial expansion lying to the West of
our fair city smack in the middle of St. Joseph's Bay. We are,
of course, referring to our fine natural deep-water harbor.
It was again called to our attention at the Chamber of
Commerce annual meeting Monday by the guest speaker -- a
chap from the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce.
So you see, if we here don't realize our potential, those
in neighboring communities do.
We have heard, in recent days, that the city once owned
a warehouse and no shipping of any consequence went through
it. Maybe so, but that warehouse was standing during the war,
when it was right dangerous to venture out on the water with
a ship. Also, it's location wasn't very conducive to water traffic.
We realize that there are faster ways of transportation to-
day than by water, but a great deal of goods move by water and
we see no reason why some of it couldn't move through here.

CONFUSION IN .SANFORD -
Who's postmaster? For a while no-
body knew, and even now the prob.
lem may not be cleared up. Joel
Field was given the job on June
6, 1944 by President Roosevelt. Re-
cently, word got out that he was
being outsted to make way for a
Republican. Senators Holland and
Smathers and (Congressman Syd
Herlong asked the Post Office De-
partment to keep them posted on
any development on this move. The
Post Office Department promised,
but didn't do it. Two weeks ago,
the inspectors swooped down. on

that he was to be the new post-
master. In the midst of the "check-

tor Holland. Holland got busy. As
suddenly as the inspectors a-rived,
they departed. Thye returned to
Washington. Then it gets confusing.
The Post Office Department said
they would oust Field on Friday of
last week. This time they notified
Holland of their plan. They sent
their inspectors back to Sanford.

Yes-a Billion Dollars that protects you and your family-
helps build homes and roads and bridges and an even more
wonderful South! Not bad for a youngster only 45 years old?
Just a few days ago, Gulf Life became one of the few
billion dollar life insurance companies. We consider this
ERS news-good news. But we do not consider it a time for self-
praise. Rather, it is a time for appreciation.
So this is to express our appreciation to our more than HOME OWNERS
1,200,000 policyowners whose faith and confidence have
- made this possible ...
Our gratitude to the 1,750 Gulflifers who have worked
Shard and long to achieve this goal .. ..
Our thanks to the businesses and industries of the South
S for permitting us to share in their development and ex-
pansion ..
Our best wishes to the thousands of people whose homes
and business properties we have helped to finance .
Our congratulations to government leaders who have con-
sistently envisioned a greater South and who have, conse-
quently, created greater investment opportunities. GOVERNMENT LEADERS
We've reached the billion dollar mark, yes.
But we feel this is only the beginning because every day,

Q---Can you brief us on the new regulations for out-patient treatment
of veterans with service connected disabilities?
A-The new system went into effect January 1, 1957 in all states
except Oregon, California, Colorado, Michigan, North Carolina.
South Dakota, Washington, Wisconsin, and Hawaii where the
starting date will be July 1, 1957. It will affect about 40,000 doctors
and 637,000 veterans. Here are changes;
S 1-Doctors will get annual treatment authorizations, instead of
submitting monthly requests; (2) Doctors may submit quar,-
terly, instead of monthly reports; (3) Doctors may submit'
monthly bills on own billheads instead of VA forms; (4). Vet.
erans will get travel authorization for entire treatment period
instead of monthly travel authorizations.
Q--What is the deadline for a GI home loan on purchase of a house
for a Korean veteran?
A--January 31, 1965.
Q-What is a Congressman-at-large?
A-If a decenninal census shows that a state is entitled to additional
representation, unless the state redistricts, the additional repre-
* sdntatives are elected at large-i.e. they do not represent any
particular district.
-_ Q-Can you tell me how the term "filibuster" originated?
A-The word 'filibuster" was originally applied to a plunderer, or a
buccaneer, or adventurers who led private armed expeditions.
From this general idea, the term has come to be colloquially used
, to designate organized obstrictionist tactics in legislative bodies.
It is the practice of deliberately taking advantage 'of freedom of
debate in the Senate with a view to delay or prevent action on a
measure under discussion. -,
--Is filibustering possible in the House?
A-No. Forcing a roll call may be possible, but even that method
does not prevail against a drastic Rules Committee report pro-
hibiting offering of amendments to a bill.

W HAT happens to the hearty

out?" In many states, he goes right
on hunting. His target, instead of
quail, squirrel, deer, rabbit and
other such game animals, be-
comes "varmits" ground, hogs,

many states, these are legal game

are feeding and lure them int(
shooting range with a crow call
This method is best during thT
day when the crows are well scat
tered and feeding., But the shoot

hunters must seek another likely

Shooting the flyway is more pro-
ductive. The "flyway" is a natural
flight lane followed by crows re-
turning from their feedirg grounds
to roost each night.
The advantages of flyway shoot-
ing are many. To begin with,
there are more crows, and a fresh
"bunch" are coming over all the,

in pairs are sometimes difficult
to interest and may be quite
wary. In a flight or large group,
however, a curious bird or two
flares off to investigate the hunt-
er's call-and once you get a few

certainty that others will follow.
Whether you will get good shoot-

For 1957, Ford's off to a flying start on the NASCAR Short Track, Convertible and
Grand National Race Circuit-with more points than all other cars combined!


And now-just in from Daytona-seven more Ford firsts!


'p -


A 300-hp 1957 Ford V-8 out-accelerated all other low-priced cars in
the standing mile competition.

*A 1957 Ford Sunliner outclassed all other low-priced cars in the 160-mile
National Convertible Championship Race.

A modified Ford Thunderbird, running in the Experimental Class, out-
accelerated every other car in NASCAR history.

A modified Thunderbird topped every Americah Sports Car, finished
first in its class and placed second to Europe's fastest sports car at the
National Amateur Sports Car Race.

A standard production Thunderbird took first place in the flying mile-
outperforming all sports cars made in America.

A modified Thunderbird won the flying mile in the fastest time made by
any car at Daytona this year.

And a Ford Thunderbird topped the field in acceleration from a standing
start in Modified Sports Car Class B.

It was Ford Thunderbird power that set a -new stock car record at Indianapolis, to ;
and powered the '57 Ford to 458 world endurance records at Bonneville, Utah.

bridges.
To these things the white man
has given names of his own. But
many prominent Indian p 1 a c e
names remain. Chief among places
with names credited with Indian
origin are Pensacola, Escambia,
Muscogee, Ohumuckle, Okaloosa,
Euchee, Choctawhatchee, Wewa-
hitchka and Ocheesee.
Take Choctawhatchee, for exam-
ple. That's an Indian name for you.
It is a name applied to a large
West Florida river and bay. The
name simply means "river of the
Choctaws." according to Florida
Place-Names of Indian Derivation,"
by the late J. Clarence Simpson.
"However," Simpson explained,
"the Chatot (Indians) at one time
lived in the vicinity." It is likely,
he indicated, that the name Choc-
tawhatchee "is due to the corrup-
tion of Chatot to Choctaw."
Present day "pale faces" here
may be interested to note that the
Pea River, a tributary that joins
the Choctawhatchee at Geneva,
Ala., was known to the Indians as
Talak Hatchee. "The name is de-
rived from the Creek 'Talako' (Pea)
and 'Hatchee' (stream).
Research Results Published
Results of Simpson's research
were recently published.
To the Indians, if they could
FIevisit the ayea, HIolmes Creek
would be Weeaywee Hatchee. That
means "iSpring Creek." The name
is composed of the Creek Indian
"Wekiwa" (Spring of water) and
"Hatchee" (Creek).
Hurricane Creek, another rtribu-
tary of the: Choetawhatchee, was
known to', the Indians as Hatchee
Thlako. That means "Big Creek",
or "Creek Big", to be exact.
1. "The present ,name. is also of
Indian origin," according to Simp-
son, "hurricane being derived from
'huracan,' the name of the storm
god of the Quiche Indians, one of
the Myan tribes of Guatamala."
Pine Log Creek, which now forms
the border of Washington and Bay
Counties, once bore the Indian
name "Okchoyce." That name, ac-
cording to Simpson, was probably
derived to Simpson, was probably
derived from the name of the tribe
"Okchia," with "Chee" (little),
meaning 'Little Okchia.'
The "Okchia" was a Creek tribe
originally lived in Alabama. Some
of them moved to Florida during
the latter part of the 18,th Cen-
tury and settled along the lower
reaches of these streams -and even-
tually became incorporated into the
Seminoles.
The Indians probably would be
glad to know that Econfina Creek,
which has its origin in Washington
County, has not only kept its IL-
,Iian name, it has changed but
very little. It is still a swift-flow-
ing stream of cool, clear water.
From its appearance, it c.opuld well
be the major Florida stream that
has changed least by the coming
of the white man.


About Mobile Swamp
Simpson's study did not disclose
how Mobile Swamp, in Washington
County, got its name.
"It is not known whether this
name was given to the swamp by
Indians or was imported from
Southern Alabama by white set-
tlers," he wrote. "It may have been
applied by the Chatot, a tribe na-
tive to the area, who spoke a dia-
lect resembling Choctaw. It may
be the same as the Choctaw. It may
be the same as the Choctaw 'Moe-
li,' a word which signifies 'to pad-
dle.' "
To the local Indians of two cen-
turies ago, he name Blue Springs
would probably be meaningless.
But just say "Calistoble" Springs
and they'd probably know you're
talking about what we now kilow
as Blue Springs, near Marianna.
."Delado (,Boyd, 1937:,22) describ-
ed the spring of Galistoble in 168.6
In the Ayala diary of 1693 (Leonard
1939:230). Blue Springs is called
the spring of Calistoble. The Chi-
pola River into which runs the
spring effluent flows, was shown


on the Romans' 1776 map as the
Southern British Colonies, as the
