Labor Day Is

Accident free

Port St. Joe and Gulf County
made another hurdle over the La-
bor Day week end toward an-
other full year with no traffic
fatalities.
There were no accidental
deaths of any sort reported in
Gulf County over the holiday and
no traffic mishaps. This record
came along with a nation-wide
record of highway and acciden-
tal deaths over the same period.
Gulf County went the entire
year of 1957 with no traffic fa-
talities and local, county land-
state highway police are .waging
a 24 hour fight with reckless
drivers seeking to repeat the per-
formance this year.
Police locally are continuing
their crack-down on reckless dri-
vers, especially running stop
signs and speeding violations.


Harden Asks For

More St. Joe Roads

Commissioner E. C. Harden, Sr.,
acting for the County Commission,
recently requested the State Road
Department to construct a connect-
ing link secondary road between
U. S. Highway 98 and the Niles
Road at Port St. Joe, to serve the


Forest Hill Cemetery.
Harden was also successful re-
cently in his efforts on behalf of
the Board to get Road Department
approval of a needed industrial
road along the site of the Glidden
Co., running generally in an east-
west direction, and along the site
of the propos-ed M'ichigan Chemical
Go. When completed at' a later date,
the road will extend northeasterly
until it reaches Highway 71 (the
Wewe-St. Joe Highway) in the vi-
cinity of White City.
This development, of course, will
provide a more direct route to the
paper mill for traffic from the
north.
At this writing, the SRD is doing
survey work on these two projects.
At its own expense, the St. Joe
Paper Company has agrede to con-
struct a road, leading from the in-
dustrial road into the company
wood yard.

important supplier of heavy rare
earths.
The company's present facilities
are situated at Saint Louis, Mich.,
Manistee, Mich., and El Dorado,

Miss Minerva M-cLane, administr
gave the Rotary Club an insight on
local hospital at their meeting Th
said that the hospital's main worr
eral illustrations of this condition.
Miss McLane said that the hos-
pital is in good shape:as far. as
finances are concerned. The hos-
pital discounts all its bills and all
indebtedness is paid up to date.
"All this is being done, even though
the local hospital charges are much
lower than other hospitals in the
area", Miss McLane said.
During the past two years of
which Miss McLane has been di-
rector at the hospietl, the opera-
tion has come up from a loss of
$11,597.41 in 195,6 to a profit of
$31,723.61 in 1957 and $11,392.98 for
the first six months of this year.
Operating costs liave been reduced
from $ 731,097.3-6 in 1956 to $149,.
.100.50 in 1957 and $8,2,559.74 for
-the first six months of this year.
Gross income has risen from $161,-
600.05 in 1956 to $180,844.11ll in
1957 and $93,9512.72 for the first six
months of this year. It was pointed
out by Miss McLane that the hos-
pital did not have "in pocket'" all
the profits reported as they 'includ-
ed unpaid bills also. The total pay-
roll at the hospital has been re-
duced from $4,291.60 bi-monthly in
1956 to $4,095.90 now, Personnel
at.the hospital has been reduced
from 47 to 40.
Miss McLane said that over the
same period of two years, the hos-
pital has been able to purchase and
pay for over $8,600.00 in new equip-
ment. The City has not been re-
quired to make a qonstribution to
the- hospital since 195-6.
On the crowded conditions, Miss
McLane said that during the year
1957, the hospital had-an average
daily occupancy of 115% of capa-
city. This was accomplished by
-crowding wards, putting beds on
the sun porches and In the halls.
The hospital was originally built
as a 22 bed institution. The aver-
age daily census in 1957 was 25.
So far this year it has been 21.

PRESIDENT SIGNS BILL GIVING FINAL

APPROVAL OF FUNDS FOR- HARBOR

Word was received yesterday by Harry H. Saunders,
chairman of the Port Development Committee of the Port
St. Joe Chamber of Commerce that the money has now been
officially appropriated to begin an overhaul of Port St. Joe's
port facilities. The money for the local project had been
approved along with the Public Works Bill last week by
Congress just before it adjourned. The bill then went to
President Eisenhower for his signature giving the project
the final approval.
The message to Saunders reported that the President
had signed the bill giving the last bit of approval needed for
the St. Joe request to be approved.
The bill provides $573,000.00 for the Port St. Joe pro-
ject, which will provide about half the funds needed to ex-
pand the local harbor channel to a depth of 35 feet with a
37 foot bar entrance.

for the "off year", there is a lively
bunch of candidates to choose from
for the 10 offices to be voted on.
Twenty-six candidates are seeking
these offices. Perhaps the most
lively race in Gulf County, as it is
throughout the state is that bt,-
tween Senator Spessard Holla.a
and -his opponent, Claude Pepper.
Gulf County's Representative rac%,
which normally engenders quite a
number of colorful adjectives has
been relatively calm this year, w.th.
all three candidates concentrating
on contacting the voters.
Four races in the County will be
decided in the first primary next
Tuesday. These are: County Com-
missioner, Dist. 5; both Districts
of the Board of Public Instruction
race and the County Prosecuting
Attorney, which is being voted on
for the first time.

Court, George Y. Core, voters in
the vicinity of Port St. Joe will
vote in the following places:
Precinct 4: Overstreet, Commun-
ity building.
Precinct 5. Highland 'iew and
Beach area, Curfi, O'Brian buildings

cided for this precinct.
Precinct 10: South Port St. Joe,

tennial building.

Hospital Auxiliary
Needs Youth Clothes

The Municipal Hospital Auxiliary
is sending out, an urgent call for
children's clothing to be sold in
The Thrift Shop, which is oper-
ated by members of the organiza-
tion. According to Mrs. Lawrence
Bissett, President of the Club, the
stock of children's wear has been
completely depleted -by people
seeking to outfit their children for
school. Mrs. Bissett earnestly re-
quests that you check your closets
for outgrown and discarded cloth-
ing, especially that which would
help to make it possible for un-
derprivileged children to be pro-
perly clothed for school. All mer-
chandise handled by The Thrift
Shop is sold for a very nominal
sum and helps those who would
find it otherwise financially im-
possible to provide clothing for
,their school age children.
Mrs. Bisses states, "It is a good
feeling to know that you have help-
ed some child along the way to edu-
cation, and this way is a very easy
way. Give a little girl or a little
boy a better chance-a good frock
or a pair of jeans means a lot to
them, and so little to you".
"Make a bundle of your chil-
dren's used and outgrown cloth-
ing, pick up your phone and call
Mrs. Tom Coldewey, Mrs. Tom
Hutchins or Mrs. George Anchors.
One of these ladies will be happy
to call for it. Do your part along
with us to help outfit these chil-
dren for the new school year."

Promises are Deceptive .. .

Records are Not!

The voters of Florida do not want a political
chameleon for U. S. Senator. A political chame-
leon will promise anything. It changes color out-
wardly without any real change beneath its politi-
cal skin.
Florida's future progress demands sound, sens-
ible, stable, responsible, proved representation in
the U. S. Senate.
Senator Spessard Holland provides the kind of
representation that Florida needs. His impressive -
record is open for all to see.
Spessard Holland is the first Florida Senator
in 40 years to serve on the vital Senate Appropri-
ations Committee. He is a member of the im-
portant Senate Committee on Agriculture and
Forestry. As a firm and courageous fighter for
States' Rights, he was the principal sponsor of
the Tidelands Act that brought Florida 4,000
square miles of offshore area, including potential
oil fields. Holland has been, is, and will continue
to be a leader in Florida flood control and water-
ways projects, pest eradication, citrus develop-
ment, veterans' affairs and hospitals, old-age as-
sistance, anti-subversive legislation, and many
other programs vital to Florida's welfare.

THE VOTING RECORD
His ultra-liberal opponent, the already once-
rejected ex-Senator, neglected his job when he
was in the Senate, compiling a very poor voting
and attendance record. (Holland was on record
on 97.7% of issues vs. his opponent's 76% in
three Congresses.) The former Senator supported *
much legislation unacceptable to Florida.
The former Senator failed Florida and the South.
In seeking re-election the former Senator is des-
perately trying to deny his record a record that
caused Florida voters to repudiate him in 1950.
The former Senator has become a political
chameleon, trying to win votes with empty prom-
ises.
The record shows that Senator Spessard Holland
is the man Florida needs. He is a leader, a doer,
a man who thinks at all times of the needs of
Florida and the South. He stays on the job, votes
soundly, and reflects the will of those he repre-
sents.
Vote for and support Spessard L. Holland for
U. S. Senator.
KEEP FLORIDA AHEAD WITH HOLLAND

Director; Herbert E. Wolfe. State Campaign Treasurer.)

Another D-Day?
Red Chinese invasion of the island of Quemoy on the
heels of stepped up pounding fro coastal artillery could settle
most any moment the long-parried question of whether or not the
US would defend this offshort bastion of Nationalist China.,
Under the 1955 Mutual Defense Treaty between the US and
Chiang Kai-shek's government in Taipeh, we are pledged to the
defense of Formost and the Pescadores, but Quemoy has been
built up as a military strong-point until it is occupied by nearly
a third of Chiang's 600,000 men. It should be noted, too, that a
month after ratification of the treaty by the Senate, Secretary Dul-
les stated that the question of whether or not an attack on Que-
moy is an attack on Formosa would be decided by the President
"at that time".
In recent days, Mr. Dulles has said that an invasion attempt
would be considered a "threat to the peace" of the area. The US
Seventh Fleet has been alerted. Chinese Nationalist flyers have
repulsed a Red air attack over the island. The 83,000 ton USS
Essex, with an escort of four destroyers, ordered from the Mediter-
ranean, gives the Seventh Fleet its fifth carrier and a total com-
plement of 71 ships.
Queried on his present attitude on the Quemoy attack,
President Eisenhower told his press conference that developments
of the last three years have brought about a "closer relationship"
between Quemoy and Formosa but that "you simply can't make
military decisions until after the event reaches you".
Whatever may be in the devious minds of the Red Chinese
leaders, they know now that we will stand with Chiang at Que-
moy. If the operation has been an elaborate feint to learn our
intentions, there will be no invasion. But if the Red Marines,
now massing for attack, make an assault on the beach anything
can happen.
And now "Kute Krusshy" has thrown his two cents worth
in and said, in effect: "you leave my big brother alone or I'll clob-
ber you". Well, we believe that Krushy isn't going to clobber
anybody. If Krushy wanted to try any of us, he wouldn't have
to hunt an excuse to do it. He'd just go ahead and wade in.
We believe that Red China is just trying to find out for sure if we
will fight for our people and Krushy is just talking, because he
already knows he won't have to crook a finger to back up his
brag.

Tuesday is voting day here in Gulf County and over the
State of Florida.
And voting day, means it's time for YOU to go to the polls
and express yourself .n several different political races for im-
pqrtant offices in our County and State.
As usual, there will be numbers of people who will not go
to the polls, considering their vote not important, disgusted with
'the way things are run', not satisfied with any of the candidates,
or some other such reason.
But regardless of our feelings in the matter we should
vote.
And while you are voting, we would appreciate it if you
would cast a vote for Senator Spessard Holland for re-election to
the Senate.
We read where Claude Pepper, Holland's opponent, brags
that he has the Northwest Florida "labor vote" sewed up. Pepper
is assuming, we imagine, that the "labor vote" is now a block
vote just like other blocks in Northwest Florida and other parts of
the nation. We hold persons who vote a "block vote" just be-
cause they happen to belong to a group or race where their so-
called 'higher-ups' have said 'you vote this way' as not exercising
their individual rights. You have the right to vote for who you
want.
We read the other day where Mr. Pepper said, '"labor knows
before they bring a bill to Congress that they have Pepper's vote".
Frankly, were we labor or anybody else, we would look at any
legislator who made such a statement with a jaundiced eye. The
legislator just isn't making good sense who will make a state-
ment like that. Who ever heard of voting for something before
you know what it is. We say that if Pepper would do this, he is
worse than wrong, because he has sense enough to know better.
Labor is not infallible. Every bill they bring to Congress is not
for the best interests of the people. Neither are all bills present-
ed by management always good for all the people. A person
who has the intelligence to weed out the bad bills and vote for
the good ones is the person needed in the Congress.
We would like to ask Mr. Pepper or anybody else support-
ing him if he can give us a place in the history of Florida where
the laboring man has had it any better than he has for the past
12 years? During the terms of the present delegation to Wash-
ington, Florida has made her most spectacular growth. She has
puther best foot forward. She has advanced from a growing state
to the top five in fastest growing states in the nation. Florida
has had more industry locate in its borders (providing more jobs),
during the past 12 years than during any time in history. Wages
are certainly better now (and for the past 12 years) than at any
time in history. And don't do any yelling about high prices, be-
cause as long as wages are high prices are going to be high.
When you go to vote, just forget about the fact that some-
one has told you that a certain person is the best to vote for. Just
think of your position up to 12 years ago and your position today
(notwithstanding the recession, which we don't believe Pepper
could have stopped).

Uncommunicative Leedskalnin
would tell no one why he was
building his castle or explain to
.curious neighbors how he accom-
plished his, amazing construction.
So closely did he guard his secret
that he did most of his work at
night, with the aid of only a small
lantern for light. He made no writ-
ten notes, no plans or blueprints,
nothing from which his secret could
be revealed.
It took him 3 years to build Coral
Castle and he died shortly after its
completion, his secret going with
him to the grave.
Today Coral Castle is an out-
standing Florida attraction and
each year thousands of people vis-
it it to stand in wonderment as
they contemplate the mysterious
building and surrounding walls.


Children are leaders f tomorrow.
Therefore, drivers should use every
caution in driving near schools, es-
pecially when school opens and at
closing time.
Many of the drivers do not ob-
serve or understand the law in
passing school buses. When a bus
is either loading or unloading, all
vehicles coming in either direction
must stop and wait until the bus
is again in'motion. This observance
on the part of drivers will prevent
the many bus accidents which oc-
curred early this year. Also drive
carefully and obserev school zone
driving.
"Children are not thinking about
accidents" stated Asher Frank, di-
rector of the Florida Safety Coun-
cil. "Jt is up to the drivers to think
that one of these children ma ybe
his own."

South Magazine reports:


"GREEN STAMPS

are helping

Dixie grow"


"During the past few years a major addition to
business in the South has been the fast-growing trading
stamp industry.
"Proof of the growing importance stamps play in
bolstering the area's economy is found in the Southern
operations of The Sperry and Hutchinson Company,
distributors of the widely-known S&H Green Stamps.
"In 1957 alone, S&H purchased more than
$12 million worth of merchandise from Southern
manufacturers, providing many of the area's industries
with increased outlets for their products and boosting
Southern payrolls.
"Added to those figures is the $2,250,000 annual
payroll written by S&H for its present and growing
866-person Southern personnel. The Company has
invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in real
estate to locate its modern redemption centers, indi-
cating that the industry has become a permanent part
of the area's business life."

about one-third of all other bank

Dear Mr. Tenant,

Do you end each year with 12 rent receipts? If
this is the case, we have good news for you.
If you own your own lot, you may have a home
built for no down payment. If you do not own your
lot, the down payment will still be small. and the month-
ly payments will be just like the rent you are now pay-
ing.

Don't delay! Call BAll 7-4051.
Sincerely yours,
COASTAL REALTY COMPANY
and
WYNOKO DEVELOPMENT CO.

P. S. At the end of another year you will own an equity
in your home instead of 12 rent receipts.
