City To Regulate
Speed of Boats
The City Commission passed an
ordinance at their regular meeting
Tuesday night designed to stop
boat racing in dangerous waters
on St. Joseph's Bay.
The ordinance prohibits a speed
of more than five miles per hour
in that area from the water's edge
to the end of the pier in the vicini-
ty of the new city 'boat landing at
the foot of Fifth Street.
Many instances of speeding and
boat handling in the immediate vi-
cinity of the boat landing prompt-
ed the passage of the ordinance
in an energy manner.
A .penalty is provided in the or-
dinance for violators of the speed
regulation. The first offense car-
ries a fine of .$20.00. The second of-
fense will be fined $50.00 and each
additional offense will carry a fine

islature, harried from all sides by Either plan would require new
teachers, parents and taxpayers.
mnay come up with the biggest
change in public school philosophy
since the Minimum Foundation Pro-
gram was adopted 10 years ago.
"It's time to make some kind of
a start," said Rep. J. E. Pratt of
Bradenton. "The parents and the
taxpayers are being closed out in
having a voice in how the schools
shall be run."
Most legislators are frankly du-
bious of Gov. LeRoy Collins' plan
of a merit or incentive system of
raising teacher salaries by giving
.more money to superior teachers.
Others are outspoken against
teacher demands for, a flat $1,100
raise for all teachers that would
put the cost of the Minimum Foun-
dation Program at more than 325
Pratt and some others, backed by
the Legislative Reference Bureau,
are convinced that money alone is
not the answer to the problema of
keeping the public schools supplied
with top-flight teachers. The power-
ful Florida Education Association
replies that a $4,200 starting salary
would "stabilize the profession" so
that equality would follow.
The reference bureau, research
arm of the lawmaking body, report-
ed that paying teachers according
to their college degrees makes the
entire salary scale so rigid without
any rewards for special ability that
many teachers quit because they
have no chance to advance.
Pratt and some education offi-
cials believe the basic philosophy

Once in a long, long while a car comes
along that people remember and talk
about for years after its introduction.
The first model "A" Ford was such a car...
The first Ford V-8 was such a car...
The first Ford Thunderbird was such a car.
Today Ford Division is proud to an-
nounce still another car that many say
is destined to become the most famous
Ford of all: The Skyliner-world's only
If you plan to buy a new Ford, or al-
ready own one, the fact that Ford cre-
ated this car is important to you. For
all the exhaustive research, planning
and testing that went into the Skyliner
is evidence of the engineering skill you
get in every Ford model.
The Ford SKYLINER, the only all-steel
hide-away hardtop, is a car for history.
This is an old dream of Detroit, a
dream of two generations of motorists. ,
And today Ford has made that dream
come true-in steel.
But the story behind this dream is a
story of men who refused to accetl "no"
for an answer. In the Ford tradition they
kept striving toward the goal long after
others had given up the chase.
To understand this Ford spirit you
must go back to 1908. That was the year
when many Detroiters smiled smugly as
Henry Ford announced, "We will build
a motor car for the great multitude .
so low in price that no man making a
good salary'will be unable to own one."
And they did.
Today, nearly a half century later,
Ford continues to cause the "experts" to
change their tune. When you see this
all-steel hardtop that retracts into a con-
vertible, you'll be seeing a car that many
said would never be mass-produced.
But Ford did it,
It was December 1956 after eight
years of research, planning, experiment-
ing and testing-when Ford unveiled this
masterpiece .. unveiled it amid all the
pomp and splendor of the New York
And now this history-making car, this
prototype of a whole future generation
of cars, is ready for your own personal
inspection in the showrooms of many
Plan to see it soon. And ask your Dealer
to show you the exciting advances in all
models of the new Ford line for '57,
It's the newest new kind of

With reference to speeding and
failure to heed stop signs in the
City limits of Port St. Joe, I wish
at this time to mention the fact
that it has been brought to my at-
tention that there are some Individ-
uals who do not seem to have res-
pect for these traffic regulations
and curtailments in the City limits
During the recent months my of-
ficers and myself have been con-
stantly reminded by the City Com-
mission to strictly enforce the
traffic regulations of this city,
which we certainly attempted to
do. and the cooperation by the ma-
jority of the citizens of this com-
munity in this respect is highly ap
preciated, however ,there are still
those traffic violators that certain-
ly will not be allowed to contin-
ually disregard the City traffic and
speed regulations and not to be
dealt with according to law. I am of
the opinion that sufficient and lair
warning has been given to all mo-
torists in this area, therefore, it is
mny duty to see that speed and traf-
fic regulations will be strictly en-
forced and upheld on all law vio-
lators in this community.

City of Port St. Joe, Fla.
On February 19, 1957 the Port St.

accumulation of debris, decayed

trash, excessive growth of weeds,
dangerous trees, or noxious plants
The owners of such property are
now being notified by letter re-
questing -that the provisions of this
ordinance be complied with within
a thirty (30) day period. Within
the next thirty (30) days all per-
sons who own property that is in
need of clearing or cleaning will
have received the proper notice as
directed by the City Commission.
The two chief purposes of this ac-
tion is attempted' to improve the
appearance of vacant property in
the City and also to prevent the
hibernation of mosquitoes and oth-
er Insects that are prevalent in
shaded areas during the summer
Also with further reference to
clearing of property in the City
limits this is to advise that the
City of .Port -St. Joe will not be
responsible or undertake the obli-
gation of hauling or removing
trees, underbrush, or other accu-
mulations of trash resulting 'from
the clearing of such real estate,
other than trimmings from flower
bushes or lawn shrubbery.
Tt is also noticed that accumula-
tion of trash at different times
have been placed on City property.
This is in violation of City ordin-
ances and the City Commission has
directed -that the City Police De-
partment see that this practice is
The prompt .and kind coopera-
tion of the citizens of this com
unity will be appreciated in re-
spect to clearing of real estate 'ni

effective teacher helps each child
to develop his personality to the
highest possible degree.
All the responsible leaders in
Florida, and in the rest of the 48
states as well, realize that well-
balanced, skillful, educated teach-
ers must be on the staff of every
public school if the children of all
the people are to learn the ways f
There is general agreement
among interested citizens that the
public schools have an opportun-
ity to prepare students for a life
in which they are able ot acquire:
.1. Thorough training in the fun-
damental skills-usually referred
to as the "three R's", with primary
emphasis on the acquisition of in-
tellectual ccmpetence-"how" to
learn, and thorough training in a-
common core of basic information
and skills, such as learning to read,
think, compute and write effec'"ve-
ly and accurately..
2. Training in citizenship-the
understanding of the. responsibili-
ties and duties of living in a dem-
ocratic society and of our gove'a-
mental system and cultural heri-
tage, with a positive belief in the
free enterprise system which has
made America great.
3. Vocational training which pro-
vides a proper balance of general
education with training in a partic-
4. A strong understanding of the
importance of "attitude" couple
with a desire to be of serve to fel-
low men -and women.
These outcomes cannot be hoped
for unless this nation has a good
supply of well-trained teachers able
to assist young men and wombn to
develop these traits in a democra-
tic school system.
