garded so lightly by some people. According to Coach Marion Craig
Since duck season has gone with
the calendar, we would like to tell
this little story. It goes along the
lines of the woodsman who couldn't
see the forest for the trees.
Four of our august citizens, name-
ly Byron Eells, Jr., G. Scott, Elmo
Ford and R. W. Henderson went
duck hunting one day last week.
They were sitting in a boat and
waiting for the ducks to fly-they
never did. When it came time to re-
turn home, they cranked up the
motor and two mallards flew up
off the water not 20 feet from the
boat. The quartette was so surpris-
ed that none of them fired a shot.
That's about like Frank Pate going
bird hunting all day long, not seeing
a bird, and having one fly off his
gun barrel when he took it off his
shoulder to cross a fence.
Garden Club Selling Plants

Wednesday during the remainder

Craig Returns From
National Coach Meet
The hopes of the Michigan
Chemical Company erecting a plant
here in the near future was still a
possibility, the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce Board of Direc-
tors heard at their meeting Mon-
Harry H. Saunders, chairman of
the Industrial Committee, in a re-
port before the Board said that
everything humanly possible was
being done to bring the plant to
Port St. Joe. Saunders said that the
firm's officials wanted to bring *he
plant to Port St. Joe but that some
of the economics in the situation
had not been worked out satisfac-
torily as yet.
Saunders said three things are
still being discussed to iron out the
economics of the plant locating
here. The three items are electric-
ity, shell and gas. Officials of the
Florida Power Corporation have
been working with Michigan Chem-
ical representatives to iron out the
power rates. Saunders said that n
his opinion, the last rate quoted by
the Power Company was "as good
as anywhere". The C. of C. com-
mittee had also made overtures to
REA for power in case the Florida
Power Corp. could not meet the rate
requirements. The gas and shell
matters are still being discussed.
Saunders said a final decision by
the firm should be known by the
last of January. .
The Chamber had a request on
file to provide housing facilities for
some 250 engineers to come to Port
St. Joe in reference to the Cape
San Blas project. This request was
turned over to the Industrial Com-
mittee for handling.
Joseph V. Dowd presented a bud-
get of $2,300 to the Chamber for
the coming year. A request for
funds from the Retail Merchant's
Division was read before the Board

'58 GREETINGS, FRIENDS:
This may be coming a little late but there's still time to wish
'58 times that you'll have a healthy, happy and prosperous year
and may that famous Florida sunshine be on you and dwell in
you through the whole year.
While thinking about something special to write decided to
pass tne buck and refer you to tne '58 specials available at
BOYLES' during the month of January. Along aboot 50 odd years
one begins to slow down considerably and has no other choice
bot to make the effort to capitalize on the thinking, planning and
work of others. It so happens that I'm starting with my own
wife, Guy Middleton and associates at BOYLES DEPARTMENT
STORE. Have had a careful eye on them for quite a number of
years and you can take it from me they'll deliver the goods
to you with Cash Savings! 'My wife and I spent a day in Baltimore
recently looking for Hot '58 Specials believe me, friends .
that woman can smell a bargain four blocks away, and she sim-
ply refuses to accept Inferior quality even at half price. She
insists on going to the bottom of the barrel and carefully scrutin-
izing every apple (should we buy apples!) When any order is
written you can bet your boots that pencil spelled TOP VALUEI
Guy Middletorn is just as "old maldish" as can be when making
merchandise purchases, and he's always looking for something
studded with diamonds!
In fact, it's just gotta shine before he'll latch on to it .
in style quality value! I figure when you get two like
that pulling together you Just gotta have a winning team So I
says to me: "Why think so hard over what to write?" Just
tell 'em a few hard, cold, cash facts and ask Guy and Erlma to
slip in a few of those new, sputtering, (Sputnik or sumptin) '58
CASH VALUES to be had at 'BOYLES. Well, friends, this is the
easiest way to get by this time that I'm able to figure (it may not
be as easy nextf,:.Imel) Anyway, I'm telling 'em Just to cut the
wood, build the fire and I'll blow it. My wind is stronger than
my legs and it's no use my thinking about running a thousand
miles in this space traveling agel One more word: In case you
should ever get gypped at BOYLES' just send me a wire or drop
me a line and I'll take it up with the Cash Bargain Committee
(Congress has just convened) here in Washington. Maybe you'll
get your money back or your name in the records of destinyl
