Kiwanis Install


New Officers

A new slate of officers took over
for the Kiwanis Club at their regu-
lar meeting Tuesday noon at the
Motel St. Joe.
The new officer slate of George
Wimberly, Jr., president; Gannon
Buzzett, vice-president; Tom Also-
brook, treasurer and Dick Lamber-
son, treasurer took their office un-
der the installation of Raymond
Cartledge, district 'Lieutenant Gov-
ernor. Installed as directors of the
club were Frank Hannon, Bob King,
John Robert Smith, Bill Cowden,
Marion Craig, Hubert Richards, and
Rex Addison.
Cartledge urged the Kiwanians to
continue in their role as a civic
club, teaching citizenship through-
out this community and the United
States. He declared that all Rus-
sia's "firsts" will do her no good
if we keep America strongly-knit
together through citizenship and
love of freedom.
Oartledge praised the club for its
abundant civic work and especially
its work among the youth of the
community. "While we know this
is a great accomplishment" said
Cartledge, "we want it written down
so that Kiwanis International will
see what you are ,loing here and
'bring your's and the district's grade
up where it should be". Cartledge
charged the new officers and com-
mittee chairmen with turning their
reports in fully and regularly as
they are due.

A feature of the evening was a
short talk by the utility's president,
W. J. Clapp, in which he reminded
employees of the dangers of a
spreading public power philosophy.
"If the Davis Bill ('Bill No. HR
4266) -now pending before the
House of Representatives in Wash-
ington, is passed in its present
form, TVA will become a form of
"Galloping Socialism" rather than
the "Creeping" variety it has been
termde .in the past," he said. "Fur-
thermore, the unfairness of the
TVA situation will be intensified
under the present version of the
proposed bill," he added.
'Taxpayers of the nation have
supplied over 1% billion dollars for
the construction of power facilities
which pay only token taxes and
sell power to a very limited num-
her of users at rates that do not
compensate the United States
Treasury for any interest on this
money," Clapp said.
At another point in his talk, the
utility president said that "TVA
should be made a responsible busi-
ness organization, self-supporting
and capable of meeting its respon-
sibilities instead of a gigantic ex-
cursion into socialism." Rates, he
said, should be realistically based
on actual cost of generation. "This
experiment in socialism will not
stop with the utility industry but
can-and will-eventually encom-
pass all industry and all business-
es in the country," he concluded.

Fire Department

Gets Three Calls

Cold weather put Port St. Joe's
Volunteer Fire Department on the
run as they answered alarms to a
house fire and two grass fires dur-
ing the past week.
Last Friday morning the fire de-
partment put out a small grass fire
on Woodward Avenue.
Friday night the Department re-
ceived a call to a duplex apartment
house on Avenue "H" in the col-
ored section of town.
Although the blaze was stubborn
the department contained the fire
damage to just one side of the du-
plex, which was owned by Damon
Peters, and confined the damage to
three rooms in the apartment.

Fire Record In Many Years


A week of intense advertising
and promotion by Frank Pate and
his committee produced a large at-
tendance on the first Sunday of
the Crusade, according to many of
the churches .in reporting their to-
tals for last Sunday. While not
many attendance records were set
many ministers said that the at-
tendance under the circumstances
of the recent holidays and the mill
being shut down, they thought the
attendance was excellent and gave
credit to the Crusade for the in-
creasing interest in church attend-
ance. Many looked hopefully to the
Sunday to come when attendance
should climb to new records..
Pate and his committee have pub-
licized the Attendance program in
every way possible with billboards,
signs, word of mouth and radio and
newspaper publicity.

1957 Forest Fire
Record Good In State


TALLAHASSEE Florida had
a better forest fire record in 1957
than ever before, State Forester
C. H. Coulter reported this week.
Coulter said that preliminary fig-'
ures show a record of only one acre
out of every 245 protected acres
burned over during the twelve
months period. This amounts to a
mere four-tenths of one percent,
and compares with a .previous an-
nual low of 1.3% n fiscal year 1953-
54.
Coulter says that the 1957 percen-
tage burned represents a fire toll,
of 66.522 acres swept by 4,224 fires.i
Not only was the "percentage':
'burned" figure a record low, bul'
also several other indexes of firg
protection. Among these is a ne-
fire occurrence low of only 25 firesi
per hundred thousand acres pro-
tected, and a record-breaking low

Bouquets For A Good Work
The first reports coming in from the Church Attendance
Crusade speaks of a job being well done by a group of laymen.
It is our belief that on such a Crusade as this nothing can be
more effective than the laymen themselves, urging the extra effort
for the church. Such urgings are expected from the preacher and
are taken by many as the preacher just doing his job, even though
they know he genuinely concerned. But when a man's hunting
or fishing buddy, his nexh door neighbor, his friend of long stand-
ing, is in a campaign urging Church attendance or anything else
- he just listens closer and takes more heed.
We are glad to see the Crusade began here in Port St.
Joe. And especially we are proud of the response the Crusade
has received from the laymen of the city. Nothing can be im-
possible when a group of good men work toward a common goal."
If you were in Sunday School Sunday, you would have stu-
died the basis of this very campaign. The lesson was on the
church and how the layman can serve the church and its needs.
According to the Baptist Sunday School quarterly, the entire quar-
ter lessons deals with the Church and man's responsibility to it.
That's something we rarely ever thing of man's responsibility
to the church we are more prone to dwell on the church's re-
sponsibility to man. *
We hope that you will be in the church of your choice on
Sunday and every Sunday thereafter you will benefit greatly
by it. As our preacher says, "you will take away a lot more than
youf brought".


Make Haste Slowly


Strong opposition is developing against a proposed law
which would have the federal government, through the social
security system, pay for hospital and other medical costs incurred
by people eligible for social security benefits.
Organizations which have gone on record against this com-
prise a long and diverse list including, for example, the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Federation and the American Medical Assoc-
iation. And the opposition is based solidly on principle '- that
the proposed legislation amounts to compulsory insurance for those
affected; that it would inevitably be extended to other groups,
and that it could very well be the entering wedge to eventual so-
cialized medicine the hope of advocates of socialism in the
United States.
The American Medical Association now has a committee
at work on an extensive research study of the medical needs and
status of elderly people. This committee's chairman says: "The
A. M. A. has supported voluntary health insurance and other
voluntary measures designed to promote individual and family
economic security and responsibility. Progress in this direction


lias :een"pheinoinenal. Let's not take hasty action;' there is no
immediate problem. This picture is too complex. What we
must do is study the problem carefully. Government interven-
tion would be fatal."
Here is a matter where wisdom and reason demand that
we follow the old adage and make haste slowly. The poten-
tialities of the proposed bill, and the scope of the precedents it-
could establish, are staggering and dismaying.
.-- W. S. Smith in the Gulf County Breeze

Along the lines of "cousin" Smith we are not slamming
that certain individual or wish him any ill will but if you
are a proponent of socialized medicine we would like for you to
try and make an appointment with the government paid county
health doctor, other than his regular office hours here in Port
St. Joe the next time you have an ache or pain and become in-
doctrinated to the customs of "socialized medicine".

The Russians may beat us to the moon wit ha rocket. But
we'll bet we get there first with foreign aid.

SE 58~~ FORDI CUSTOM 30P


Here's the best news of th, .r for people
who want to make their car dollars go
further:
While prices of other cars have gone
up for 1958, Ford has reduced the
prices for its popular Custom 300
models ... below 1957 prices!
And these new 58 Fords that you can
buy for less than 1957 prices are beautifully
styled, handsomely trimmed cars that can
stand up with pride alongside even the
costliest cars. Yet they are the lowest
priced cars* of the low-price three!


If you go for V-8 performance, you can
have your Custom 300 powered by Ford's
all-new Interceptor V-8 with Precision
Fuel Induction.
Or if a "six" suits your driving style
better, you can have Ford's famous
Mileage Maker Six.
See and Action Test a new Ford Custom
300 and you'll say what they.are all saying:
For smoother riding comfort, topnotch
performance, tight-fisted economy, top-
dollar value you can't beat the Ford
for '58. See your Ford Dealer!
