Comes To Town Tomorrow


ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WE$ LEY R. RAMSEY

I guess Emmette McCalvin, the
long tall cop has officially changed
his name to Matt Dillon now. He
now has a little silver nameplate
on his uniform blouse that so ne-
body has given him with the ns ne
"Matt" engraved on it. He w( ,'t
say where it came from-but 78
have a sneaking suspicion.
We'll give you a little insight of
how far his real name has slipped
into oblivion.
The other day Matt went into
C. W. Long's Western Auto to buy
some fishing tackle (he doesn't buy
anything else). After Matt made
his purchases he said, "C. W., how
about charging that to Emmetto
McCalvin". C. W. looked at him
square in both eyes and said "huh
. umn huh um now see
here, did yiu bring a slip with you
saying it was alright to charge it
to him? huh um huh um
. we sometimes get trouble by
charging things for somebody to
someone else's account." Matt had
to show his driver's license to get
the merchandise. And even they
are stamped "Matt Dillon--alias
Emmette MiC'alvin".

Do you watch Tennessee Ernie
Ford? Did you see him last Thurs-
day night?
Thursday, Tennessee was singing
"That's All". In the song there was
a phrase that went: "The rich man
hangs on to 'his money, when the
undertaker gets him where's he
gonna spend it under ground?"
If this paper mill doesn't start
running regular, nobody will have
to worry about where to spend it
'underground'-he -can't even af-
ford to get the hole dug, much less
have any left to keep his- penny-
pinching hands warm six feet un-
der.

Reports in the newspapers say
that the recession will let off now,
because it has hit bottom.
I hope it isn't much deeper than
this.
Speaking of hitting bottom, we
are convinced that music is going
to get better. It can do nothing else.
Like the recession-when songs
like "Bad Motorcycle" and "Witch
Doctor" hit the sound waves, mu-
sic has definitely reached its low-
est depths. It can do nothing else
except fade from the entertainment
scene or get better.

We would lil* to make an appeal
to you people. We know you are not
working much. We know you are
not turning loose of much money.
But we would appeal to you to turn
loose of what you do right here
in Port St. Joe when you do. Your
local merchants are having a hard
time of it too-perhaps more so
than you are.
You laugh at that, I know.
,But consider. The merchants of
Port St. Joe purchased their spring
and summer merchandise back in
October and November. The bills
for this merchandise are now due.
What with curtailed work at the
mill, their sales have been cut as
high as 70%. Consider that the av-
erage merchant nets a little less
than 10% and what with the cut-
back in shopping, you can see that
he is suffering.
For this reason, we would urge
that you make a desperate attempt
to spend every penny that you have
to spend right here in Port St. Joe
and give your neighbor a helping
hand-then I feel we will all come
through this thing in much better
shape.

Just this good one on Charlie
Wall, and I'll close.
-Charlie, a died in the wool cast
letter rap out of work Saturday
and decided to go fishing. But his
mullet net was rotted and torn. He
couldn't use it. He had to revert
(reluctantly) to go fresh water fish-
ing. After extracting a promise of
no ..horse-play from Charlie, Frank
McDonald and Jenks St. Clair fin-
.ally agreed to take him to the
Dead Lakes shell-cracker fishing.


Old St. Joseph Was

Destroyed By Dollar

Clyde A. Fite told the story of a
new and little known society in
Port St. Joe to the Rotary Club
at their meeting Thursday of last
week at their regular meeting.
The society he talked on was the
historical society which was origin-
ated last fall for the purpose of re-
viving and preserving some of the
history of old St. Joseph.
Fite talked at length of all the
good works the Society was doing
in restoring the old cemetery of
old St. Joseph and preserving sev-
eral historical facts and articles in
the Constitution Park Museum.
"We should give these hard-
working ladies every support we
can", Fite observed. One of his
main points for support of the so-
ciety was concerned with the de-
mise of old St. Jos'eph as a city.
"History and romantic historians
have the city being destroyed by
yellow fever and a tidal wave",

Dear Sunshiners:
Just occurs that a logical name
for this brief column could be:
"Spring Has Sprung" here! Amid
-the springing green grass, budding
buds, and blooming flowers a most
familiar face with sparkling eyes
and a healthy smile pops in on the
scene. It proves
to belong to none

years ago. Topp-
ing it off she-

I out to be a severe
indigestional dis-
BOYLES turbance that dis-
played some earmarks of more ser-
ious. organic difficulties. The order
,was revoked within three days .
now I'm up and about, feeling chip-
per! Occurs to me again another
name for this little "Hello" could
be: "Thanks to Him from whom
all blessings flow", plus thanks to
my family and friends that
means you, too! The event includ-
ed some disappointment since my
bag was packed and I was holding
a ticket to the Sunshnie state .
however, a state of active health
plus the presence of the wife I had
not seen in nearly 90 days is far
more to be desired than all 48
states and territories in this great
Union o ofurs. Barbara is. happy,
too. She told us today that she was
going to be well! It's a wonderful
thought! Believable!
Well, so much for dull auto-biog-
raphy and let's turn to Spring .
and you. We meant to tell you
something about the traditional
Washington cherry blossom festi-
val now cone and gone .
but the past few weeks have been
filled with important and signifi-
cant inside activity pertaining to
matters of general health and wel-
fare for both Barbara and the wri-
ter which have had precedence over
this "Hello" effort. (Here I go
again about me! I'm trying to .talk
about thee!) The thoughtfulness foJ
the following is especially acknow-
ledged and appreciated: Rev. Brad-
ley, Woman's Society of Christian
Service, Royal Hearts Sunday
School Class, Mayor and Mrs. J.
L. Sharit (recent communications).
Our thanks also for the many, many
kind inquiries that come by the
grapevine in regard to our state of
well being. (Guy Middleton is one
of my Middlemen a sort of
transmitter). My wife talks, too!
Oh, another friendly note along
with a little bill thanks, Mrs.
Florist Nedley.
Room for a short commercial:
Have you checked BOYLES lately
-for "Get well prescriptions" in
shoes, wearing apparel, dry goods
and notions? I've a notion this
would lend health and a state of
well being to your pocketbook! Try
it fr you and me! *will you?
Thank you and may the Saints win
and be with you until we meet

In Appreciation of Your Patronage We Wish To
Bring To Your Attention Our Position With Regard
To Personal Credit


Service Station Operators being in the small
businessman category are by the nature of their
respective businesses operating on a very limited
capital.

With respect to our inability to personally
extend credit through our own assets, we are at-
tempting to sol e the problem by using the "Credit
Card" plan offered by the oil companies we rep-
resent.

Those customers presently buying their gaso-
line requirements on service station "Open Ac-


count" basis are requested to ask for oil company
credit card applications at the service station
where they are now trading.

This plan f f extending all gasoline credit pur-
chasing through oil company credit cards by ne-
cessity of our f! uncial position will become effec-
tive in the very near future.

Your cooperation with us will help to keep the
service stations in your community operating on a
sound financial basis.

Sorenson's Repair

If you don't know how to repair
a car, be sure you know the man
who does your repairing. In very
few fields is the integrity of the
man as important as in car repar-
uing. There are numerous small re-
pairs and some not so small, which
can be tacked on a repair bill by
an unscrupulous garage. It pays to
deal with a reliable firm.
iSorenson's Repair at 2112 E. 5th
St., in Panama City has built up a
reputation in this vicinity.
You can rely on Sorenson's to
perform all of the work they do
expertly on auto and motorcycle
work and foreign car work. They
have an English car mechanic.

that has brought results and made
it possible for the city of Panama

for those within it to prosper.
J. Frank Covington and his seed

must go for playing no small part

knowing that Apalachicola had
been outwitted, for the road as it
first projected by the national gov-
ernment, was to run to that city
without touching St. Joseph.
The town was undoubtedly in-
creasing in population, but one
must not imagine that it was very
big. The results of an official cen-
sus held in the spring of 1838 show-
ed that Calhoun county had a popu-
lation of only 1,645, of which 532
were colored. There were only 260
voters in the county. Franklin
county had, in the same census,
1,890 white inhabitants, 176 colored
people and 262 voters.
Thus supposing a more rapid in-
crease in the population of St. Jo-
seh we may believe that the towns
were about equal in aize as the

fortunately, complete statistics for
this season are not available. Apa-
lachicola's exports decreased so
that only three-fourths as many
bales of cotton were shipped as the
year before. It is believed that St.
Joseph's trade decreased propor-
tionately, for there is no suggestion
anywhere that the city scored a
great commercial victory.
Decide To Build Canal
During this winter the work on
the St. Joseph and Iola Railroad
was pushed steadily on. It was com-
pleted sometime during 1839. Al-
though the exact date of the open-
ing cannot be ascertained, it was
probably as late as October, for the
advertisement appearing in The
Times, announcing its opening is
dated October 28, 1839.
Even before completion of the
railroad, the restless Saints were
turning to a new project, or rather
to an old one of 1,835, the construc-


, Mrs. Ralph Swatts used the 121st
Psalm as a devotional, followed by
prayer.
The subject of the afternoon's
program was the importance of 'ie
Women's organizations in the to-

Kilbourn showed that the monthly
programs on missions are unequal-
led, and their close bond of fellow-
ship is one of the strong points.
No one group has been more out-
standing in their influence in shap-

PROTECTION
The length of chain hanging
from the rear of a fuel truck is
a simple precautionary measure
against the accumulation of
static electricity. Without the
protective chain the truck could
be turned into a blazing inferno.
Health protection measures should
be taken, too. The most important
is seeing your physician for
a thorough physical examination
at least once a year.
By doing so, you may avert
a serious illness,

by Dr. Thomas Corrinth, "Strength-

Ir. Corrinth brought oult five
points that the WSCS should keep
in mind. 1. Be tender all the way,
laugh and cry hard. 2. To pray to
get more workers. 3. Don't be a
problem but a solution. 4. Don't
be a deadbeat in the street. 5. Get
in the cheering section, not the
criticizing section.
The business session was con-
ducted by Mr. Ed Ramsey during
which several announcements were
made concerning the covered dish
supper with the Wesleyan Guild and

DAY LILIES
Though day lilies are among the
easiest of all garden flowers to
grow naturally, growth and flowers
will be improved by proper care.
When you buy a day lily the
grower will cut the top back to six
or seven inches from the crown.,
If transplanting one of your own,
clip in the same way. Cut back the
very long roots that extend far be-
low the cluster of roots also.
If plants are ordered by mail,
soak them over night in a fertilizer


solution before planting. '
Don't feed day lilies during hot
weather. Give the last application
-of fertilizer (4-7-5 suggested) in
early May.
