Long Avenue Paving Is Assured for This Year
You have to get up early to out-
think this younger generation
You take the other day for in-
My boy child number one and
one of his chums came by the shop
during one of our preoccupied mo-
ments. Boy child number one came
up to me and said, "Daddy, Jake
and I are going to the show and
we would like a little loot to spend".
So we dug down in the pocket and
pulled out a quarter, a dime and
a penney. Knowing full well that
you can't fill up two hungry boys
on a dime (provided you could buy
anything with' it) we played the
generous father and handed over
the quarter. Boy child number one
looked at the quarter and then
looked back at us and said, 'Have
you got another nickel? We can't
divide up the extra nickel." Well,
taken aback as we were, we hand-
ed over the dime part of the 11c
left in our bankroll and off they
They had gone out the back door
before we fully realized that we
had forked over 35e and they still
had an "extra nickel". Since we re-
ceived no change, we take it for
granted that they figured some way
to get rid of the "extra nickel".
We don't know where they learn
that "conning" technique, but you
can bet that boy will be selling
printing for the mother company
just as soon as he is big enough.
Either the ice cream business or
the loan business is looking up.
Emmett Laird, manager of the Un-
ion Finance Co., and mortgage pay-
er of the Dairy Queen here was
seen sporting a new sleek boat the
other day. And, to top it all off, he
had it down at Butler's Trim Shop
getting the seats upholstered. If
the fish don't bite, Emmette Is at
least going to be comfortable.
We have planted something and
it came up. Our main project this
spring was a small garden in the
back yard. And everytlPing is com-
ing up, wonder of wonders. We have
butter beans, pole beans, radishes,
corn, squash, cantaloupes, tomatoes,
carrots, brussels sprouts, bell pep-
pers and cantaloupes planted in the
back yard are all coming up. In
such adventures in the past-our
"black" thumb had overpowered
all efforts of our "green thumb".

Change In State
Primaries To Affect
City Voting Schedule
Representative Cecil G. Costin
phoned The Star late yesterday
evening, to report that th:e change
in the State voting primary dates
have passed the Senate and
would probably be approved by
the House of Representatives
some time yesterday afternoon.
This change in primary voting
procedure would put the first
State primaries in September.
This would interfere with the
Port St. Joe Municipal Election
every other year, which also set
for the second Tuesday in Sep-
tember-the proposed State pri-
It was Costin's thought that the
City Primary date should be
changed since the two elections
coming on the same date would
require two different polling plac-
es to hold State and City elec-
tions and would require another
group of pollholders, thereby
While. The 'Star didn't have
time to contact city officials be-
fore press time yesterday after-
noon, it Is almost certain that
the city election dates will be
changed if the State voting
change passes the House.

spent considerable time for the past
few years seeking to get either the
State Road Department or the,
County, through its secondary--rmd4'
program, to resurface Long Avenue..'-:
The County has said thai 'the
street will definitely be resurfaced
this year from Fifth Street to the
High School. Original attempts by
the city were to have the county
set aside enough money, approxi-
mately $145,000.00 to resurface,
and put in curbs, gutters and storm
sewers from First Street to the
High 'School. The County Commis-
sioners, when they met with the
City Commision Tuesday night, said
that only $40,000 was available for
Long Avenue paving, which would
resurface the street from Fifth
Street to the High School.
The Star contacted County Com-
missioner George Cooper yesterday
and Cooper reported that the -work
would probably be done this sum-
mer. He said that a definite date
for the starting of work on the
street could not be given as yet,
since the State Road Department
must now advertise for bids tor
the job. Cooper said that possibly,
the work would call for a new
bridge across the rain a*te-h t,

now serving at this spot.
The paving of Long Avenue has
been long sought after both by
the city and by residents of this
street. The paving on the street
was beaten up into a deplorable
condition when traffic was routed
over the street during the widening
and repaying of Monument Avenue.
Now that the paving is definitely
set for this year, The Star would.
like to deviate from its policy and
insert a little editorial wording
In this news story by saying, "It's
not a moment too soon".

The financial condition of the
Board was sound, states Howard.
The finances appeared to have been
generally well-managed. Expendi-
tures were held within the resour-
ces. Budgets were fairly well-pre-
pared and followed, with excep-
tions. Tax levies increased. Rec-
ords were well kept. Depository
balances were adequately secured.
The financial condition was good.
There was no indebtedness of any
kind on record as of Sept. 3T,
cords were not in "apple pie" or- 1956. (No other county in he

first really thrilling news to come
along in years. A new and conven-
ient way to get rid of extra pounds
easier than ever, so you can be as
slim and trim as you want. This
new product called DIATRON curbs
both hunger and appetite. No drugs,
no diet, no exercise. Absolutely
harmless. When you take DIATRON
you still enjoy your meals, still eat
the foods you like but you simply

tions and automatically your weight
must come down, because, as your
own doctor will tell you. when you
eat less, you weigh less. Excess
weight endangers your heart, kid-
neys. So no matter what you have

TALLAAHASiSEE- ('FNS) With
the Legislature entering the sec-
ond half of its session, a busy four
weeks is inevitable if all the con-
troversial bilsi are taken care of
without the lawmaking group go-
ing into extra session.
A few important bills, such as
the quickie divorce measure, some
highway safety bills and the inter-
position resolution, have passed
both houses. The senate voted to
outlaw trading stamps, but the
House hasn't acted yet. The Sen-
ate passed a prison reform bill, a
small loan's bill and a junior col-
lege measure. The House is still
working on these bills.
'Still' to be taken care of are
such controversial issues as -the
teachers' pay raise, the milk com-
mission, central purchasing, tax
equalization and constitutional re-
Senate President W. A. Shands
says the Senate will finish its job
on time. House Speaker Doyle Con-
ner says he will recommend Sat-
urday sessions if necessary to in-
ish on schedule.
Under 'any circumstances tits
session will be the most experlstve
on record. The general appropria-,
tions bill will total some $575 mil-
lion and that doesn't include teach-
er pay raises or additional class-
roomn. And the session is costing
Florida taxpayers about $120,000 to
enact these new laws.
Officers Give Program
To Rotary Club
At their regular luncheon meet-
ing last Thursday at noon, the Ro-
tary Club of Port 'St. Joe heard an
interesting program on the na-
tional guard aad 'home defense for
an atomic 'attack.
Captain Bobby (Howell and Sgts.
0. P. Johnson and P. B. Fairley
brought the program with C.pt.
Howell as spokesman. Howell, who
has recently finished 'a course on
atomic warfare at Fort Knox, KY,
told the Club o fsome of the dan-
gers to be feared in an atomic at-
tack. He said that of the four rays
put out by the blast, only one, the
gamma ray causes damage. He
said that heat causes the most im-
mediate damage being concentrated
in the explosion area. Radiation
causes about 15% of the total cas-
ualties from an atomic explosion.
Contrary to popular belli5f, hardly
any fallout results unless the ex-
plosion occurs on the ground. An
explosion on the ground throws par-
ticles of dirt into the air which
carries the radiation. He said that
the earth covered by an explosion
on the ground must be played un-
der before 'it is safe to travel over.
The radiation does not go away
until the earth is turned under.
Then the radiation is present, but
is buried making the area safe for

tarians the National Guard's place
in national defense. He said that
the Guard is strictly a band of week
