Craig Announces Opening Of
Football Practice on Aug. 18
by Wh a.EY R. RAMSEY
-- -S W
^Well, the temperature at night
has dropped below 90 degrees so
it is time to begin thinking of foot-
ball. Coach Craig says that his
gridiron warriors will take to the
practice field Monday and begin
getting ready to start the season.
Coach Craig sl only singing the
blues in a minor key this year so
we believe we will have a good
The Coach has applied much hard
work, painstaking planning not to
mention the herculean patience he
has meted out to his charges to
combine with his vast store of
know-how to advertise the fact that
Port St. Joe can play pretty fair
country football. "
Win, lose or draw this year-we
are still witcha, coach!
Mark C. Tomlinson (he has chan-
god his middle name from Pinwale
to Courthouse) is doing a little
--construction behind his abstract of-
'ices. Mark swears up and down-
and with a straight face-that he
is furnishing a place for Gulf Coun-
ty to move its jail in to.
Nothing like being prepared.

that things are good in Northwest
We came close to telling you how
one of our paper salesmen from
the Capital Paper Company in Tal-

brand new Thunderbird the other
day to sell us some paper.
"I won that car, free," he said.
He won the car for having the lar-
gest increase in sales over his terri-
tory than any other salesman in
the company-and his company co-
vers most of the Southeastern
states Which would make things
seem pretty good in Northwest
Florida, which is his territory.
We 'started to tell you all this
to make you feel good.

The loss of players of this calibre
will certainly be felt. However, all
is not gloomy in the Shark camp.
The returning players have accept-
ed the challenge of a major rebuild-

a team that will try to overcome
its inexperience with a fighting

Great lakes freighters of nearly a century ago depended on this tiny
lighthouse standing on land reclaimed from Toronto Harbor on the
north shore of Lake Ontario. It was moved from its original location
to the left of this picture to make room for the busy highway traffic
now swirling past it. And the nearest "freighters' 'are the trans-
continental trains on the mtain line of the Canadian National Railways
back of the building.
