Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the :.c-,idch'icola-Ghattahoochee Valley"
by WESL-EY R. RAMSEY
Audi'ey has come sneaking in
- with a coy-like manner of other
damsels and, like other damsels
will. stir up a mess of fuss along
the Louisiana coast.
It must have been a man that
thought "of giving hurricanes the
names of women. After all who
can cause the most ruccus with
the least provocation than a wo-
man it it isn'tt a hurricane?
With Audrey we get rain. The
perfect weather for those taking
their vacation from the St. Joe Pa-
per Company now that it is shut
,'Jno for two weeks.
Nothing livens up a vacation like
having to stay indoors while the
precipitation falls. A good excuse
for the men to do nothing but re-
lax and catch up on their sleeping
The paper co.mp.tiy should have
a thoroughly rested crew to start
work-on July S.
We read the other day where a
104-year-old man beat up his 82-
year-old wife because he was jea-
lous of her. We hope that by the
[imn we are 104 we will have the
inclination to get jealous if the
occasion arises. It'll be a sight
better feeling than sitting or lying
all day a- semi-invalid like many
old people .are.
We sea where Eisenhower is re-
commending that the states of the
nation assume some of the- sed?-
Svices now -offered by the Federal
government to reduce federal
AIke may be a Republican, but.
we agree with him. The tax dollar
would come back with more value
than'it does after it has beeh wa-
Sered down by Government circles
before it is spent ioL'ain.
.Th city is laying water and
sewer laterals on Long Avenue be-
yond 16th Street in preparation to
the repaiung. of Long Avenue.
One of the gripes here. has been
that as soon as a new street is
built it is dug up again to run a
* sewer or water line.
-.Atter Long Avenue is repaved
this, situation shouldn't arise now
with the city taking steps to pro-
vide these services beforehand.

by the Gulf County Continuing Edu-
cation Council October 15, 1956,
which reads as follows:
"That this Committee recom-
mends to the Council that there
be a re-assessment of all real
real property and that all person-
all personal property, tangible
and intangible, be placed on the
tax rolls in accordance with law,
and that a Committee of nine
citizens be appointed to offer
aid, advice and assistance to the
Tax Assessor in re-evaluating the
County tax structure and increas-
ing the total valuation; that if
the Tax Assessor's re-evaluation
and increase in valuation is ap-
proved by this Committee, then
this Committee appear before the
County Commiss.oners when sit-
ting as a Board of Equalization
to assist the Tax Assessor in de-

"On December 10. 1956, your
Committee reported to the full
Council of its meeting with Mr. Pat-

tions to the Tax Assessor.
"Since our last report to the full
Council, a Sub-Committee has met
numerous times with Mr. Patrick
in an effort to ascertain his feel-
ings in carrying out the recommen-
dations of this Committee. The Sub-
committee prepared a plat of the
business district of Port St. Joe
using a one hundred percent valua-
tion for all real property in this
area and presented it to Mr. Pat-
rick for lis comments and advised
Mr. Patrick itf he wished for us to
continue this work we would be
glad to do so which would incom-
pass the entire County. Mr. Patrick
did not request us to continue with
our valuations so we felt this pro-
cedure was useless.
"The Sub-committee met with
Mr. Patrick in Wewahitchka at his
office on June 19 in an effort to
determine just what plans he had'
developed in working out re-assess-
ments. The Committee was advised
that it was his intention to Increase
the valuation of all real property
by one-third of its present assess-
ment, making, no effort to equalize
the assessments throughout the
County. A number of questions
were directed to Mr. Patrick re-
garding personal property tax re-
turns as to his attitude and inten-
tion would be on those citizens who
filed a personal property tax re-
turn and those who did not. The
Sub-committee was left with the
impression that Mr. Patrick would
place on the tax rolls, all of those
personal property returns that citi-
zens of Gulf County filed and no
action would be taken on those
citizens who did not file returns.

are no bargain at any price!
No car is a bargain if it's obsolete in styling and engineering features. And
the Swept-Wing Dodge actually obsoletes other cars in its field with its low, low
look of tomorrow and revolutionary advances like Torsion-Aire Ride, Push-

A Lesson In Sportsmanship
Those young boys associated with the Little Boys Base-
ball and Babe Ruth Baseball Leagues here in Port St. Joe are
soaking up their training in sportsmanship, which is the primary
objective of the programs.
We would venture to say that they have learned more
in the line of sportsmanship than their adult mentors -- not
just part of them, but all of them. Granted some are worse than
We hesitate to hurl brickbats at this sacrificing few who
have given of their team for this worthy cause. But nonetheless,
we believe it is doing more harm than good for the managers,
officials and sponsors of the league teams to be forever looking
toward the winning side of their team. Of course it is nice to win,
but, as we understand it, winning isn't the primary objective of
the league. Certainly the winning of a game isn't important
enough for the adult workers in the leagues to show their back-
sides in front of the children they are trying to teach. We have
been guilty and so has practically other adult connected with
the league. Why, do you know that two of the Little Boys Base-
ball games have been played under protest by managers? This
is a deplorable thing.
