is in the process of being torn down for scrap. With the passing of
the mill memories return of when this butsling industry in Port,
St. Joe once ran 24 hours a day producing lumber for war and
peace. The mill once employed hundreds with an annual payroll
of over a million dollars. Expense incurred in hauling logs for such

Kiwanis Club To
Of Peace Here
The Kiwanis Club of Port St.
Joe will lead local citizens in the
observance of Work and Pray for
SPermanent Peace Week, it was an-
nounced this week by Rex Addi-
son, president of the club.
The program was developed be-
cause of the sincere desire of most
Thinking people to "do something
about" achieving permanent peace,
Addison said. The Kiwanis Club is
asking local clergymen and reli-
gious lay leaders to bring their
own messages to the people on
how they can help to bring about
permanent peace, through their
prayers and through the power of
their individual codes of morality
Commenting on the forthcoming
observance. Addison quoted impor-
tant religious leaders as approving
the efforts of his club and Kiwanis
International in attempting "to
help the individual to help the
world to lasting peace."
Doctor Norman Vincent Peale,
Minister of M a r bI e Collegiate
Church in New York City, in com-
mentiug on "Work and Pray for
Permanent Peace Week," said: "I
believe that the most powerful
force that can be used in establish-
ing permanent peace is prayer. If
your organization can increase the
number of those who continually
pray for peace, the day of triumph
will be greatly hastened."
Rabbi Louis Binstock, of Temple

daism, 'peace' has always been the
primary objective of all our pray-

In All Divisions
By HERMAN DEAN
The Port St. Joe High School
Band returned last Sunday after-
noon from Orlando where they at-
tended the official state band con-
test. The local band competed with
11 other bands in the "CC" classi-
fication and came out with "Ex-

contest in which tley were entered.
The band members were housed
in the swanky New Langford Ho-
tel located in Winter Park, just on
the outskirts of Orlando proper.
The hotel was equipped with a
fine swimming pool and the St. Joe
bandsmen spent most of their spare
time enjoying the cool water. The

little local medical aid a, nominal
expense and perfect results. All
had a wonderful time and are much
better informed in the ways of
state band competition than ever
before. We now know just wha- it
takes to earn a "superior" rating.
It might be interesting to know
that there were a total of 60 higl-
school bands competing in all
classifications during the two days

THE GOVERNOR PROMISED NONEW TAXES--
YET HIGHER TAXES ARE LOOMING NOW
is this keeping faith with the Voters?
In a campaign speech, Gov. Collins said that the growth of
the siate population would boost existing revenues to finance
the expanded governmental operations without new taxes.
"With sound management and honest spending, I believe we
can meet these needs without new taxes", the Governor stated.
If this was true in 1956, it is equally true today.
Florida's population has grown-but the cost of its State Gov-
ernment has topped that growth by 1000% during the same
Despite the promise of no new taxes-the State Legislature, at
the request of the State Administration, has passed the most
exorbitant, extravagant, wasteful and uncalled for appropria-
tions bills in the history of Florida-bills that will demand
hundreds of millions of dollars more than the past budgets,
and which you will have to pay through higher taxes out of
your earnings, and at the cost of many comforts your family
has enjoyed. These high taxes atop the already high County,
City, School and Federal taxes you are now carrying. If you
are against this extra tax increase'-then write, wire or phone
your Legislators in Tallahassee today. Do not wait-do it today!

Some friends just bought a par-
cel of land from Dad Baker. The
land is good but it's rough. The
new owner got an old wagon
with the land and was askin' me
about putting' on new wheels. He
explained that the wheels were
loose and they probably wouldn't
last much longer. Now I'm no
wizard about mechanical things
but I do know that a loose wheel
will "walk" itself -around pal-
metto roots and stumps where
n tight one will break in no time
z, all. So I told him. The new
owner looked at me like I was
making' fun of him.
From where I'm sitting people
are like wagon wheels, some of
them are stiff and hit every
bump hard. Others know how to
avoid the bumps. They don't try
to make life rough for the other
fellow by denying him his pleas-
ures simple pleasures such
as enjoying a friendly glass of
beer or ale with his friends and

Genesis, Chapter 26

peace" (Jer. 8:11) says the scrip-
tures. There seems to be a univer-
-sal desire for men to have peace,
Their willingness to give or make
peace seems to be another matter.
Before the fall of man in Eden
there was real peace. The "Lion
would lay down by the lamb". As a
result of the fall, peace now has
to be attained by effort. Only by
the wisest and most careful kind
of living, and by the help of Al-
mighty God can it be had. The life
of Isaac beautifully portrays these
great truths. The experience of
Tsaac at three wells which he dug
is typical, and may be very helpful
Contention-Causes of Strife
The people of Gerar envied Is-
aac because of his earthly bless-.
ings. The more he accumulated, the
greater their envy became.
They became covetous desiring
that to which they had no right.
They felt these wells should b-,
theirs simply because they wanted
They became resentful because
they could not have them; because
they had not thought of it first; be-
cause these wells were partly rL-
sponsible for Isaac's prosperity.
They feared Isaac because he had
become "Mightier than we" In
our world today fear has gripped
the peoples of many lands, making
war a distinct threat.

march. When people nurture evil
designs in their hearts, there c.anu
be no other end.
Malice follows, when hatred has
been taken into one's bosom. Satis-
faction in and pleasure at some-
one's ill fortune is a manifestatic'i
of this terrible disease. Some peo
pie have advanced so far in this
direction that they can enjoy tor-
turing others. The holding of grud-
ges and acts of spite are to be ex-
pected from those who hold onto
Rehoboth Avoidance of Strife
At this well Isaac had room, and
found he had avoided a clash. To
do so he had displayed:
PATIENCE, or uncomplaining
endurance, characterized by self-
possession. It also suggests a quiet
waiting for something expected,
such as- relief.
FORBEARANCE, or self-control
under provocation. He had refrain
ed from enforcing the square deal
which was his due.
RESPECT for the rights of oth-
ers, no matter how ill-founded they
were. Isaac was a sojourner in Ge-
rar, while they were natives. It is
very difficult to have a right of
our own that does not infringe on
the rights of others. Certainly
there are times when it is not ex-
pedient to insist on one's rights.
At this well Isaac utilized the
room, and the peace that ensued,
to do three things, and the order
o their doing is very significant.
"He builded an altar" vs. 25.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God"
Matt. 6:33. If we, like Isaac, woui4
only put God first. So often He is
given last consideration.

foundation, then peace would be
Finally, he dug a well. From a
well one gets water. In the scrip-
tures waiter often signifies life
Thus Isaac shows us that we can
have a satisfactory and peaceful
life by digging for it. It will not be
easy, nor will it come by any other
