Miller Home Burns
To Ground Friday
The home of J. P. ('Bud) Miller
at Kenney's Mill was totally des-
troyed by fire last Friday morning.
The Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department was called to the blaze
at 11:00 a.m. but were unable to
save the house. When the fire de-
partment answered the blaze, the
house was already completely en-
veloped in flames. The department
confined their energies to keeping
the fire from spreading.
The Miller family lost everything
in the fire except for a few clothes
and a couch. According to Mrs.
Miller, who was at home alone, the
fire started from a defective elec-
tric wire in the ceiling.

the dealers in our County does not
carry a majority of the items need-
ed to keep the road department go-
ing; that he has to go direct to a
jobber to get the parts needed and
that the jobber always gives the
County wholesale prices, which
amounts to a. 50% discount. Theb
Board directed the Road Supt, to
purchase all items for the Road De-
partment from dealers in the Cour.-
ty, providing they carry the items
needed and provided the prices are
equal' to the wholesale prices now
in effect for the County.

Entering Canada at BIackpoo],
Quebec, and passing through the
customs, we headed for Montreral,
our first anticipated scheduled stop
But were we disappointed in
this city! We had anticipated driv-
ing about and taking in all the
scenic spots, but found that the
city was a miniature New York
with all the inconveniences that go
with a metropolitan area. There
were no parking facilities, streets
were crowded with cars bumper to
bumper and the crazy French-Cana-
dians with their frantic and appar-
ently blind driving made it ex-
tremely hazardous to venture into
the streets, so after trying two dif-
ferent times to get to designated
points we gave it up as a bad job
and headed east for Quebec.
Having our Montreal experience
in mind, we hired a guide in this
city and were glad we did when
we passed through the narrow
streets of the old walled city. This
guide, by name Paul Picard, picked
us up in what he termed "Mr. Sul-
livan's car"--a Monarch, which is
the Canadian Mercury.
We got quite a boot out of Paul
who "Spoke English good". He
seemed to think that we were
mostly interested in the cost of
dwelling houses,,particularly those
of the upper crust, and he quoted
us prices as he pointed out resi-
dences of successful business men.
Seems that one section of the city

Using the theme "Combination for Character," the 30th annual ob-

"Growing up with the companionship of a dog helps a child to
develop the traits of kindness, love, trust and courage,' says Walter
Kendall, president of the National Dog Welfare Guild, the organiza-
tion that sponsors the celebration.
Thousands of communities throughout the country will honor their
canine population with special activities during National Dog Week.
The Guild, a non-profit organization that works year-round for the
general welfare of all dogs, sponsors National Dog Week to focus
attention on the need for a better understanding of dogs, their place
in civilization and their proper care.
"For all the loyalty, devotion and companionship dogs provide us,
it seems little enough that we should set aside one week to honor
them," commented Kendall.

was not taught in the schools and
had to be learned at private classes.

informed us that "the prests she is

In visiting the Citadel and
the walled city we noted the
black, rust-pitted guns peering over
the walls, the white and grey stone
houses and shops fronting on the
cobble-stoned streets and squares.
In fact, in passing through this sec-
tion one can without any imagina-
tion believe they are strolling thyru
a 17th century city. On one of the
narrow streets, barely wide enough
for our car to pass, a group of
street urchins gathered around the
car singing French songs for pen-
nies. Paul stopped his Oar and
Myrtice and I passed out all the
pennies in our possession. Had not
th car windows been partially
raised, I swear those kids would
have climbed right in and snatched
the money from our hands.
While the new section of the city
is really modern, Quebec itself has
grown old so gracefully that inva.
sion of the new has not obliterated
the old and it has retained the.
building characteristics of the old,
en days. One has a feeling that it
is linked with heroes of centuries
ago, who died that this civilization
and way of life might live. In this
respect, we viewed monuments

Notice Of Appreciation
TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF PORT ST. JOE:
I am unable adequately to express my sincere appreciation to the
people of Port St. Joe for the wonderful support accorded me in my bid for
Mayor-Commissioner. I am indeed justly proud and at the same time com-
I want to assure you that I am not discouraged and hope that you,
too, will not be discouraged. We carried on a hard, clean campaign against
formidable odds and were almost successful.
By your record vote you have obviously demonstrated your awareness
of the necessity of public participation in your City Government; and I beseech
you to continue such activity. If my race accomplished nothing more it has
certainly been worth the effort put forth in my behalf, remembering that this
was a campaign based on principals and not personalities. I thank you all
