to receive registration, over 100
boys and about 20 men turned out
to do the signing up chores and
start a little game of "shag" to see
what the prospects for this year's
eight teams had.
Among the new boys out are a
promising group of prospects even
beofre the training begins.
We see by the papers where the
yellow fever, once the nemesis of
old ,St. Joseph is making its way
back to the United States up thru
The article said that already yel-
low fever was taking its toll in
Central America and is slowly mak-
ing its way up through Mexico.
In light of this prospect, we are
glad that the state, county and city
are conducting such concerted ef-
forts to control the mosquito popu-
lation in Florida. And of' course,
what with modern vaccine, there
is not the cause for alarm as in
days of old.
We just thought we would bring
out this fact for those who advo-
cate doing away with the mosqui-
to control program as a needless
expense now that their disease
are knocked out in these parts.
We revert to that old adage that
"an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure".
Spring is trying gSO hard to

lion it is supposed to be and'went
out like the lamb. April came in
with its proverbial showers. The

We were proud to see that write
up on old St. Joseph in the Pana-
ma City News-Herald Sunday. For
years past, The Star has carried
this story to the residents of Port
St. Joe. but to get attention, na-
tion-wide, the story must be told
in the larger metropolitan newspa-
pers and magazines. We understand
that the Florida Times-Union will
carry essentially the same story in
the near future.
While we are mainly concerned
here with the present and the 'u-
ture, the city's past, jus like peo-
lle's pasts, has much to do with its
future. Nothing will attract cur-
iosity seekers like a rich history
such as old 'St. Joseph had. And
curiosity seekers carry the word of
what the city is now. And publicity
and advertising is what builds a ny-
tlhiig---cities or businesses.
(That's a plu gif I ever saw one).
We believe that the history of
old St. Joseph is rich enough to
have a very interesting movie made
of its story. Enough publicity and
work on the part of the Chamber
of Commerce could maybe bring
this about. We don't need to tell
you what this would mean to the

per annum was 'being asked for

was to purchase fire fighting equip-

also asked where .the additional
funds from the race track money
,were coming from since the race
track money is now tapped from
several different sources to sup-
ply money to the tune of approxi-
mately $22,000.0. a year before it
is divided between tlie county and

Those Big Counties Again
It seems that the street talk was wrong again. Last
week we reported in these columns that we had heard that. Rep-
resentative Cecil Costin, Jr., was going to introduce a bill to
do away with the County Judge's substation for purchasing li-
censes here in Port St. Joe. As we stated, we hated to go strictly
on "talk", but felt the subject meant too much to Port St. Joe to
We find out that such is not the case. In a recent meeting
of the County Judges throughout the state, the judges from
the larger counties were interested in introducing legislation do-
ing away with all such sub-stations throughout the state. This
would, if passed, do away with Gulf County's substation here in
Port St. Joe., The judges from the larger counties also wanted
to make licenses good for a two year period to do away with
some of the work and worry of issuing them each year. This is
what will be introduced to the Legislature by whom, we do
We hope that Representative Costin will vote against the
bill, and we feel that he will since the judges from the smaller
counties, for the most part, are against the measure.
In the event the bill does pass, we would urge the people
of Port St. Joe to lend their support and urging to Costin to
introduce a bill making Gulf County an exception to the state
Expand Our City Limits
The movement of Highland View toward incorporation
has started a few people here in Port St. Joe to thinking.
And this thinking goes along the lines of where will Port
St. Joe expand to if it is to become the manufacturing center that
talk, hope, and half promises lead us to believe? Already, we are
hemmed in on one side by industry and the probably soon to be
incorporated Highland View. To the East, further industrial ex-
pansion does away any possibility of expanding living area in
that direction. To the South, Ward Ridge comes up to the city
limits on part of that boundary line. Expansion of the city limits
can only go to Oak Grove and beyond?
While the Legislature is in session, we would like to see
the City of Port St. Joe extend its city limits South to the new
Apalachicola short-cut highway and East to the Ward Ridge
We realize, only too well that the city cannot at this time
afford to furnish this area with city facilities, but we feel they
should take in this extra territory with the future in mind.
More Help Wanted!
Senator Harry Flood Byrd, lifelong crusader for economy-
in-government, and chairman of the Joint Committee on Reduc-
tion of Non-essential Federal Expenditures, has reported that in
the month of January, Uncle Sam's civilian payroll hit the billion
a month level!
Employment during this month totalled 2,387,015 civilian
workers, and a House study committee has stated that all "es-
sential tasks" of the Government can be performed by two mil-
lion or less. Certainly this would seem to be help enough to
run a country ostensibly dedicated to the principle that "the
best government is the least government". But the worst is not
The Council of State Chambers of Commerce reports that
un non-military agencies "the Administration is in the process
of adding a total of 85,655 new jobs to t hose in existence last
June 80". It estimated the cost at 450 millions in "salaries and
The Council calls attention to the bill of Senator Olin D.
ohnston, chairman of the Senate oPst Office and Civil Service
committee, which would provide a "painless" cut in Federal help
and set a ceiling for employees in the Executive Branch at 2,125,-
000. This "gradual, 16 month reduction in force would eliminate
293,461 jobs. "On a full year basis," says Eugene F. Rinta, re-
search director of the Council, "this would produce a budget
savings of about $1.5 billion. If this reduction occurred evenly
throughout the year at about 18,200 a month, the savings in the
1958 budget would be close to $600 million."
If you would like your Congressman and Senators to vote
for the Johnston bill (S.1683), you'd better tell them. The law-
givers are showing signs of weakening under Administration pres-
sure and need your support again. One thing is sure, that
billion-a-month payroll won't stand still. If it doesn't come down,
it will go up!

The savings expected from what a British white paper calls
"the biggest change in military policy ever made in normal

But do not expect that our "mutual security" aid will show

replace Britain's manned aircraft. South Korea will have to
be beefed up at least with weapons to meet both the British
withdrawal and the powerful Red build-up in North Africa

-Lowest Priced Car with T7/-Power Carburetion!
Pontiac started 'em all talking by tagging this eye-popping
Chieftain below 30 models of the low-price three. Now Pontiac has
tossed another firecracker into the low-price field with
Tri-Power Carburetion available at extra cost on any model. Pontiac
alone at so low a cost offers this sensational track-proved*
carburetion system that has officially outperformed super-charged
and fuel injection cars. Here's how it works: Foir normal driving,
only one of three double-barrel carburetors is in operation. When
you want a safety-surge of power, press your toe and pronto!-the
other two carburetors pour out a bonus of go as long as you need
it. Ease up ... and you're back to the gas-saving economy of
one-carburetor operation! In short-your new Pontiac Chieftain
can be tame or terrific-at the touch of a toe! Try it, and you'll
see why they're biting their nails in the low-price, field. Check the
car ... check the price ... and all bets are that you'll graduate to
Pontiac with plenty left over in your budget to celebrate the occasion!
