With all this free time around
Port St. Joe for the past year, the
. fishing bug has been busy infect-
ing suspecting males.
The latest to be bitten by the
bug is one you wouldn't think could
be manhandled by such temptation.
Frank Hannon, the "inshorance"
man, has taken up fishing-and
lying about his fishing luck-just
like any other ordinary fisherman.
We wouldn't a thot it of Frank.
He has always been the working,
truthful kind-until he took up fish-
ing, that is.
The other Tuesday over at the
Kiwanis (where this Rotarian had
gone to pick up a free meal and
try to take notes op their goings-
on). Frank had the LIuo. He had
been fishing in an aluminum bpat
and a three horse motor out on the
Say. That right there would display
s early apprenticeship into the
business of fishing. But probably,
he is insured.
But,ack to the meeting-Frank
begar to brag about the big fish
he e'ti caught. He began to show
how long it was by opening his
arms -wide and pulled a shoulder
muscle in his shoulder trying to
get his arms out to the ,true dimen-
sions of -that monster fish. He then
had to call on Bob King for the
loan of his (longer) arms to give
true value to his catch.
'He may be a new fisherman, but
he is learning the ropes fast.
The Senator, Spessard Holland,
(and Senator for a long time to
come, we hope) came to Port St.
Joe with his campaign yesterday.
A bad time for newspapers pub-
lishing on Thursday to cover his
talk, but lhe had some good things
We :think the Senator is a good
man and we plan to vote for him.
( Speaking of voting, we think it
Id be a good idea if people
Id "write-ia" Kenneth Whit-
.el-'%.'iame to succeed his father
for a four-term on the Gulf County
'Board of Public Instruction.
Kenneth -has a lot of good ideas
and we believe -he would be a cre-
dit to the board if he could serve
on it for a full term.
All you have to do is write his
name in on the blank line provided
right under the name of his father
on the ballot.

The elder Whitfield was seeking
re-election to the School Board at
the time of his death. If there is
a write-in vote, ,the write-in canid-
date will be elected to serve the

Now On Sale
Judge Sam Husband served no-
tice this week that It Is now
time to renew your driver's li-
cense. The new licenses are
scheduled to go on sale on Sep-
tember 1, but due to the Labor
Day holiday the licenses will not
be available until September 2.
Driver's license may be pur-
chased locally from Mrs. Myrtle
Childers at her office In the
Gulf Hardware and Supply Com-
pany building. Tohe licenses may
also be purchased at Judge Hus-
band's office in Wewahitchka.
Husband says that the licenses
MUST be purchased by Septem-
ber 30. "There will be no exten-
sion date this year", he said.
Any license purchased after Sep-
tember 30 will carry a $1.00 late
penalty. "If you wait too long",
said Husband, "you will have to
take a driver's examination test
to secure your liecnse."
So, the line forms to the right
from now until September 30.
The Northwest Florida Confer-
ence held its pre-school meeting on
Monday, August 25 in Chipley.
New officers elected for the com-
ing school' year were: President,
Colly V. Williams, Chipley; Vice-
President, Leroy Bowdoin, Port St.
Joe; secretary treasurer, Harry
Howell ol Marianna.
The Conference members discus-
sed the raising of admission prices
to conference football games. The
admission was set at 1.25 for adults
and 75c for students. The Port St.
Joe representative, Leroy Bowdoin
(represented by Coach Marion
Craig) objected to the hike in ad-
mission but was outvoted by every
other member of the Conference.
Rising costs in items of equipment
and putting on games were given
as- the basis for the admission hike.
Marion Craig, of Port St. Joe was
named basketball coach of the year
in the Conference for the 1957-58
school year. Coach Craig also re-
ceived the same honor for football

Electric power service was in-
terrupted in Port St. Joe Tues-

Porter said that signs Indicat-
ed that someone had entered the
sub-station and somehow knock-
ed down a guy wire holding up
several power lines In the sta-
tion. One or two of the lines
were broken, falling to the
ground and up against carriers
of high voltage. The torrential
rains of Tuesday morning caused
the lines to short out, thus caus-
ing the power failure.
Porter said the damage could
have caused a fire, burning the.
sub-station. '*More important",
said Porter, "It's a wonder the
ones who knocked over the guy
line hadn't been killed by high
Porter emphasized the great
danger from electrocution in the

Gibson Talks of
Profit In Paper
Roy Gibson, Jr., secretary of the
local Rotary Club gave the talk to
the Club Thursday of last week on
the devious ways that the local
paper takes to make paper cheap-
er and cut down costs of produc-
"The difference between profit
and loss is-found in a dirty, dark,
hot and noisy section of the mill"
said Gibson. "One of the sections
by-passed on mill tours and the
answer to the economy in paper
production is found in the recovery
plant", he said. Gibson said that
if it were not for the plant it would
take 1,500,000 pounds of salt cake
per day and 475,000 pounds of lime
to operate the mill each day. The
recovery plant recovers all the salt
cake used during the day except
175,000 pounds and all but 40 to 45,-
000 pounds of the lime used each
day. The plant recovers waste
chemicals which are turned into
turpentine and sold, soap which is
sold to the Glidden Company plant
here, chemicals for burning in boil-
ers and many other products that
would go out in the waste pipe if
it were not for this operation.
iGibson said that if it were not
for this recovery operation, paper
would cost six to seven times what
it does Low.
Gibson said that at the' St. Joe
mill 50 to 60 pounds of kraft can
be produced for every 100 pounds
of wood used. This compares with
about 45 pounds for every 100
pounds of wood in most other pa-
per mills. "We have worked out
our own process and it makes one
of the highest quality sheets in the
'business today with less wood."
Visitors of the club Thursday
were Howard Giddens of Athens,
Ga., and Bob Rice of Rockport, Ill.

U. S. Senator Spessard Holland barn-stormed his. way
through Port St. Joe and Gulf County yesterday on a hand-shaking
tour greeting and meeting the voter. Even though Holland, a can-
didate for U. S. Senator for a third term, did no formal speaking,
he made many extemporanious comments to many small groups
throughout the County.
Chamber Sets Next
At the regular monthly meeting
of the Board of Directors 'of the
Port St. Joe Chamber of Commerce
Monday evening, it was decided
that the third quarterly meeting of
the entire Chamber would be held
on Monday, September 8.
The quarterly meeting will be
held at the Centennial Building
with a fish dinner being served to
the members. There will be a slight
charge of 50c for the dinner.
All committee chairmen are re-
minded that they will be expected
to give a report of their activities
over the past eight months.
But evon though Holland didn't
take the time to make ani formal
speeches, he still imparted the opin-
ion that former Senator Claude
Pepper was not the man to fill his
shoes in the Senate.
Holland continued his accusation
of Pepper and his affiliation with
the FEPC. This organization, which
came into -effect during wartime,
made it mandatory for a factory
or business man to hire anyone who
applied for an empty position re-
gardless of race, creed, politics or
any other reason. The law took
away an employer's right to choose
who worked for him. According to
Holland, Pepper was the only Sou-
thern Senator voting for the bill.
Holland also accused Pepper of
making overtures to get rid of the
filibuster in Congress. The Sou-
thern delegation has used the fili-
buster to advantage to kill unwant-
ed legislation on numerous occa-
The Senator predicted -that ift
Pepper were elected, it would mean
a disunity in the Florida delegation.
Holland .praised the other members
of the Florida delegation both to
ability and to their willingness 'to
cooperate with each other for the
good of Florida. "This cooperation
would cease to exist with Pepper
in the Senate", Holland said.
It was pointed out by local H'ol-
land workers .that Florida is one of
only four States in the 'Union that
has a member from both .the House
and the Senate on the appropria-
tions committee. With the defeat
of Holland, Florida would sacrifice
her Senate member to that impor-
tant committee. Appointments to
this committee of appropriations
come by way of seniority. Holland,
being the 12th ranking Senator in
seniority, so is a-ssurred 'of a seat
on this committee so long as he is
After a whirlwind tour of Port
St. Joe, Holland was taken to We-
wahitchka by automobile where he
met with the Wewahitchka Rotary
Club. There he talked for a few
minutes .on the water-way work that
is being done on the Apalachicola
and the Dead Lakes Dam work.
"'The completion of th'e Three
Rivers Project will -take a navigable
channel all the way t, Fort Ben-
ning", said Holland, "and this is
the biggest military installation in
the United States." He pointed out
that water traffic to this area
would make a heavy demand on he
completed waterway system.
After the Wewahitchka luncheon,
Holland went on to Panama City
where he was to appear last night.
On "\s trip to this area, Holland
flew to Apalachicola, where he
spoke yesterday morning and con-
tinued on the remainder of his iten-
erary by automobile.

Senate voting record 76o
Who deserves your vote for U. S. Senator?
Spessard Holland, with his 97.7% voting record
and who stays on the job ALL the time? Or his
opponent, who averaged a poor -cord of voting
76% of the time in the 79th, 80th and 81st Con-
gresses., In fact, Holland's opponent missed 52%
of the votes in one session, 47% in another.
Senator Holland has never failed to take a stand .
on important issues in the Senate. But his oppon-
ent did fail to vote on many issues when it suited
his political ambitions to do so. Why did he fail
the people of Florida? Where was he?
This voting record tells a big story. It's the
story of one Senator who faithfully performs his
duty to you and to his State. and of a former
Senator who neglected his job and was defeated
because of it.
Senator Holland has given sincere, dedicated
service to Florida and the nation. His 97.7% vot-
ing record, one of the highest in the Senate for
that entire period, shows that he stays on the job,
exercises his sound judgment, and reflects the will
of those he was elected to represent. Such a loyal
public servant merits retention by the people of
