ETAOIN SHRDLU

by WESL-EY R. RAMSEY
> *i 4> *t *00 $ lw*4* 4
We've got relatives visiting at
our house. The wife's sister and
family. They have a bunch o0 kids,
too. Seems a lot of kids runs in
that family.
That's the in-law family we're
speaking of. My side only had five
boys, so you can't say the Ramsey
side runs to big families.
Anyhow, the relatives came Sun-
day night. Since we have just
enough room out at "Ramsey Acres"
to accommodate the Ramseys, it
became necessary to seek larger
quarters. So the Ramseys and
the Holts pooled their resources
and headed to the beach for a week.
We've listened with doubting
ears to these people here in town
lucky enough to own a "summer
home" at the beach brag about
how much cooler it is out there.
,Being something of a pessimist,
we figured all those "rich ones" in
town with a beach cottage were
just trying to fool themselves into
believing that the beach was cooler
han town, and they weren't too
crazy for having spent that money
for their cottage. You know, when
a person buys something foolish,
he can usually justify his actions.
-But we have found out that they
are so right. That is fine sleeping
out there with a small gale blowing
through the house at all times.
There's only one disagreeable fac-
tor about moving to the beach for
a week-and that's the moving.
It's pack the clothes, food, bed-
ding, barbecue grill, ice cream free-
zer, and half the iteiu. in the house
and then try to remember to bring
them all back.
And then there's still the dis-
agreeable task of my driving in to
work everyday instead of -relaxing
on the porch with the rest of the
family and the company on the
front por h in 1he ocean breeze.
i'.- '" *]n"'i noI rotting a vaca-
ton until everybody else starts
taking one.
But you readers can just make
up your minds, to live for two weeks
with your former editor next year
(if we can coax him out of retire-
ment for that long) and we are
going to take our first vacation.
Can't afford one this year, but
maybe so next year.

An early edition Is the hardest
thing in the world to get out be-
cause nothing ever happens until
Tuesday or after."

We know we'll scoop the radio
station on this little bit: Gus
Creech is getting his teeth pulled
out. He's been "gumming" since
last week on his lower jaw bone.
Gus didn't say how long it took
him to make up his mind to have
them pulled.


Vacations Hinder

Babe Ruth Schedule

The concentration of vacations in
Port St. Joe this week has played
havoc with the Babe Ruth League
schedule. Due to a shortage of play-
ers, the Corvettes were forced to
forfeit their game to the Landcoe
Thursday of last week.
Friday of last week the Lions
and Legion game was postponed
due to vacations. The Lions played
the Landcos in a make-up game.
The Landcos won the game 8-2.
Bob Munn was the winning pitched
and credited himself with eleven
strike-outs. The losing pitcher was
Stripling.
Box Score -R H
Landcos 8 8
Lions 2 3
The leading hitter of the game
was Johnnie Price with three hits
for four trips to the plate.
Monday, July 1 the Legion and
the Corvettes battled to a four-four
tie before the game was called be
cause of lateness. This game will
be completed at a later date.

Visitors From Georgia
Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Holt and
children of Warner Robins, Ga.,
are spending this week with Mr.
and Mrs. Wesley R. Ramsey and
family.

Congressman Sikes pointed out
that he also is very much. concern-

to the reports-through the press.

stated, "Florida is becoming more
and more a summer resort and con-
siderable money is being expended
-by the Chambers of Commerce in
the state to promote the many out-
standing attractions in Florida
available to summer vacationers':
and while the residents of Florida
fully understand the hurricane pat-
terns and can readily interpret the
warnings forecast, this is not true
of out-of-state residents, particular.,

states". Sikes continued by saying,
"People Interested in coming to,

THE first romance In our fami-
ly began when our new neigh-
bors. the Lanes, moved in. While
other women peeped from behind
lace curtains and speculated on the
financial status of the family,.
Mother prepared a good dinner
and invited the newcomers. She
suggested that we three girls try
to be little Elsie Dinsmores in-
stead of the Wiggs children we
had been impersonating And we
did behave, for we were awed by
Mrs Lane's younger sister.
Maizie.
Maizie was a fairytale princess
-wavy golden hair, eyes like
violets and a peaches-and-cream
complexion
Our older brother Frank, who
had .never seemed interested in
girls, except that he did save pic-
.'ires of shapely actresses-Anna
Held. Lillian Russell and others
less noted-pasted inside the top
lid of his trunk and which we
weren't supposed to know they
were there, fell for Maizie from
,,he start
Maizie certainly took a shine
to him, especially when she found
he owned an interest in our only
vaudeville theater. The romance
was lovely while it lasted. Maizie
rode with Frank every afternoon
in his new stanhope and sat
through the same sets at the Bijou
every night in the week. In the
Spring, however, she found it more
pleasant to ride, presumably
alone, during the evening. Then, one"
night Frank found his horse tied
to the hitching post in front of the
theater and a note pinned to the
seat cushion. Maizie had gone
away with a Texas Ranger.
In a way, Mother was greatly
relieved, for we had learned a lot
about Maizie. But Frank adored
her and Mother was afraid he
might do something rash. She
worried about his carrying a re-
volver At first she had thought It
a wise thing to do since he came
home late at night with the box
office receipts. Now she was sure
#tat anyone with Frank's disposi-


about him and Maijle."
Mother came hurrying in. "Take
that record off," she scolded.
"Didn't I tell you girls.."
A loud report from the room
above broke off her speech. "Was
that a shot?" "she asked- in a
quavering voice. She stumbled
over her long skirts as she hur-
ried up the stairs. We followed.
Mother pushed open Frank's
door. He knelt In front of his
trunk, his back toward us. Bits
of pictures Uttered the floor-all
the gorgeous creatures that had
adorned the lid of his trunk. In
each hand he held half of a large
photograph of Maizie. f.
"Noise? Oh,I, guess it was the
trunk lid. Matbe I did bang it
You kids cle p up this mess,"
he told us with'a wry smile, and

Boy Scout Jamboree


Plans Being Made


0Officials of the Gulf Coast Coun-
cil, Boy Scouts of America, said
this week that its contingent of 81
'Boy !Scouts, Explorers and, adult
leaders are'ready for their "once
in a lifetime" experience at the
Fourth National Jamboree to be
held July 12 to 18 at historic Val-
ley Forge, Pennsylvania.
The local Jamboree party will
leave at 8 a.m. from the Naval Air
Station, Pensacola, and go to Val-
ley Forge by buses. Enroute they
will visit the Cherokee Indian Re-
servation, the Great Smokey Moun-
tains, the Blue Ridge 'Parkway
and Washington, D. C.
They will reach Valley Forge on
July 10 and immediately set, up
their camp in Section 3.
A huge tent city on 2,033 acres,
loaned by the Commonwealth-of
Pennsylvania, will house the 50,000
inhabitants of America's newest,
youngest, and busiest city. In ef-
fect it will comprise 38 "villages"
of about 1,400 campers each.
'Boys from all walks of life, of
all races and creeds, will live to-
gether, exchanging skills, swapping
home-town prndueti. and learning
about the tii toii.. and traditions
of many sections of the nation.
The National Jamboree will also
have an international flavor. About
600 Scouts and leaders are expected
from Australia, ,Bahamas, Brazil,
Canada, Chile, Cuba, Denmark,
Great Britain, Greece, Iran, Israel,

Peru, Philippines, Sweden, Swit-
zerland and Venezuela. There are
6'3 nations around the world with
Boy Scout Associations with a to-
tal membership of over seven mil-
lion boys and leaders.
The purpose of the Jamboree is
to strengthen the program of the
individual Troop and to provide -an
opportunity for boys to 'be assoc-
iated with Scouts from all parts
of their own country. This living
together in a spirit of brother laood
and friendship is one of the contin-
uing objectives of the Scout move-
ment and the basis for its under-
taking this gigantic gathering.
Scout officials feel that the sim-
ple but significant activities of
living together by patrols and
crews ,cooking, giving demonstra-
tions, hiking, and taking part in
huge arena shows and sectional ac-
tivities all demonstrate democracy
in action.
It is felt that the 50,000 or more
campers will catch the spirit of
patriotic service by living and
sleeping where George Washington
and his Army camped, lived and
suffered in that bitter winter of
1777-1778, and by so doill' kept
alive the spark of liberty and se-
cured the nation's freedom,
The Supply Service Division of
the Boy Scouts, will operate five
jamboree trading posts which will
stock official equipment, souvenirs,
hardware, drugs and miscellaneous
items, and a snack section. Profits
from these operations go into the
general jamboree fund and become
part of any possible refund, made
to jamboree campers.
An act of Congress adopted una-
nimously and signed by President
Eisenhower, authorized the loan of
certain camping equipment without
cost to the. United States with a
bond to insure its return to the
Armed Forces in good condition.
The national jamboree is an ob-
ject lesson to all particia ilsi
teaching ',lni .to pay., their own
way as a means of developing self-
reliance and self-support. Many de-
serving Scouts are give additional
aid by the Troop, by the Troop's

three-day, pre-jamboree training
camp and submits an official medi-
cal examination certificate of phy-
sical fitness. Within 24 hours after
arrival at Valley Forge, he has a
medical recheck.
Spectacular evening programs on
Friday, July 1'8, will take place in
a natural amphitheatre holding 50,-
000 campers and several thousand
guests. The stage is 300 feet wide
and 100 feet deep.
The jamboree's own daily news-
paper, "Jamboree Journal", will be
distributed before breakfast.
The Federal CommunicatiO'ns
Commission has issued a tempor-
ary license for radio station K3BSA
to be operated at the jamboree by
licensed "ham' operators. Through
it campers may send important
messages to distant points. The
three transmitters form the offi-
cial jamboree station -of the Boys
life radio club.

Increase Noted In
Lightning Fires
Florida Forest Service District
No. 1 Headquarters' records show
an increase in lightning fires for
the month of May. Of the total 63
wildfires that burned 711 acres in
the ten counties west of the Apala-
chicola River, 18 were reported as
lightning fires. This total is a re-
duction of 10 wildfires and 8,6 acres
under May of 1956. Records show
a decrease in wildfires for the year
through May of 228 fires and 7,724,
acres.
Although lightning fires account-
ed for?29 per cent of the total fires
during the month of May, man still
intentionally set 30% of the fires
and carelessly set the remaining 41
per cent with camp fires, smoking,
brush burning, logging fires and
other miscellaneous ways. This
means a total of 71% of the fires
are still man caused and can be,
prevented.
A breakdown by counties shows
Santa Rosa .had the greatest num-
ber of fires in the district with 17
burning 114 acres, Bay County was
next with 12 fires burning 346 ac-
res, Walton County 10 fires burning
39 acres, Escambia County seven
firth burning 28. acres, Gulf tivo
fires burning 22 acres, Calhoun
four fires burning 55 acres, Wash-
ington three fires burning 61 acres,
Holmes three fires burning 19 ac-
rea, Jackson, two fires burning 27
acres and Okaloosa County report-
ed no fires.

ter Johnson.

Tommy Adams, George ,Anchors,
Jr., Dennis Atchison, Holly Barr,
Julie Buttram, Benny Dickens, Pam,

kins, Holley Hendrix, Bill H-ndrix,

ning July 6, prior to sailing the
next morning and return to Mon-
treal the following Sunday.
More and more Floridians have
been turning to Canada as a vaca-
tion spot during the last few years
and we were surprised when we
first began considering it, to learn
that a dozen or more of our per-
sonal friends have'taken this trip.
-One advantage is direct air con-
nection between Canada and Tam-
pa. Now you can board a luxury
air liner in Tampa at 2 p.m. and
be in Toronto fore supper. Trans-
Canada Airlines fly non-stop and
rates are surprisingly low.
We will leave Tampa July 2, and
Trans-Canada will put us in Tor-
onto that same evening. We plan
a couple of days of sight-seeing in
the Toronto area and then will take


either the train or bus to Montreal
in .time to catch our steamer for
the St. Lawrence trip;
Returning to Montreal a week la-
ter will again' take a Trans-Cnaada
airliner for the, cross-continent
flight to Vancouver and Victoria in
British Columbia. We plan to spend
several days sight-seeing in the
area and then will travel by train
from Vancouver to Seattle and
Portland where relatives will- meet
us and act as guides on a tour of
the Pacific Northwest.
We were fortunate enough to
have visited this section a couple
of years ago. but our time there was
so limited we did not get much
chance to see the country. This
year we plan to spend a couple of
weeks and during our stay hope to
cover the area.
As I did two years ago, I shall
write columns enroute as I found
that folks are keenly interested in
learning of the personal experience
of travelers. I will try to describe
our experiences accurately and give
definite information as to costs,
accommodations and other data of
particular interest to those who
are looking forward to such a trip
themselves.
For weeks we have been paying
over literature describing the var-
ious points of interest in both east-
ern and western Canada as well
as the Pacific Northwest-Seattle
and Portland.
We are as excited as any two
humans could be for it all seems
so thrilling and unbelievable to
think that a couple of oldsters like
us could really be taking off and
kicking up our heels like this.
It seems hard to realize that we
won't have anything to do but eat
and sleep and enjoy ourselves for
the next 30 days but considering
the fact that up to a year or so ago
we never had a real sure enougli
vacation, we figure we deserve it.
