MONEY TALKS-Let's keep
Sit where we can speak with it
once in awhile-Trade with
your home town merchants
by WhSr.EY R. RAMSEY
I work all year long, just waiting
for November 15 to come along to
begin the hunting season. During
this time I waste time working and
occasionally going fishing. And this
year, we have not been able to
waste too much time working.
But what 'happens the week we
have been waiting on? We get
snowed under with work. A big edi-
tion of the paper to get out and a
pile of job work---or a change.
But do we mind? No sir. We will
just turn up the lamp a little high-
er, roll up our sleeves and do a
little night Work to get through by
at least day break Saturday morn-
ing, at which time we shall take
off for the swamp.
And just to get the record
straight-the only complaining we
are doing is that we didn't have all
this work to do all year long.
We took our life in our hands
last Saturday and journeyed up to
Crestview along with Albert (Red)
Thames, T. S. Singletary, Howard
McKinnoni Bob Ellzey and Wood-
row Henderson, to hear Arkansas'
favorite son speak. And speak he
did. We took the trip in Red's Cad-
dy-right in style-the way news-
paper people should travel.
On the way back Red got a little
heavy of foot along Highway 98
and rocked his Caddy up around
80 and 85 (with no Nash Rambler
following) and we got stopped by
one of LeRoy's catch boys. And
guess who it was. Leroy Pfeiffer,
who was stationed here just be-
fore Travis Aplin.
'If you think Faubus did some
serious talking, you should have
heard Red when Leroy walked up
to the car. "Hi ya, old buddy, buddy,
buddy", Red started off. "I haven't
seen you in a long time-how's the
family.?" Well, that put Pfeiffer
off bjance right quick and he be-
gan to talk about how he wished
he was back in St. Jop and, how
bad the fishing was up In Walton
County and so forth and he plum
forgot to fine Red for resting his
foot too much in his Caddy.
We continued the trip to Port
St. Joe at 65 per. If you don't find
Red in his jewelry store this morn-
ing, its because he hadn't told Hu-
leen about his escapade with "John
Something one of the speakers
said in Crestview Saturday got us
to wondering. He handed Ed Ball,

roses for what they had done for
Florida. "Now why", we wondered,
"would he include all of Florida in

Aplin said he noticed the car

but that the occupants were asleep.
He checked the license plates

found nothing suspicious and did-

In the turn-over, the boy broke
his collar bone but other than that
neither suffered serious injuries.
The youths were held here in

could come to pick them up.

Comparative Studies Urged
The researchers admitted they
had not investigated Florida's oth-
er ports and that comparative stu-
.dies should be undertaken before
a final decision is reached.
TU. S. Rep. Bob Sikes, a leader in
the development of the thfee-river
system, sparked the audience's en-
thusias'nt y- oirging them to "get
out and get the ball rolling. This
report won't bring a single new
plant to your county," Sikes said.
"It is a good reference work. But
we've got to take the resources of-
fered by the State Development
Commission and go from there."
Sikes said he would urge the
1959 Legislature to appropriate ad-
ditional funds to the commission
"to go out and pull in more indus-
try." He said he would suggest that
the state provide a way to spend
tax money for buildings that would
attract new plants.
Thursday n i g h t's delegations
from each of the six counties cov-
ered in the survey-Franklin, Li-
berty, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf and
Bay. Others from Jefferson, Gads-
den and Escambia counties also
took part in the discussion.
Members of the audience asked
how they should approach large
landowners, such as the paper com-
panies, to enlist their help in at-
tracting new industry.
The owners of vast stretches of
Northwest Florida will generally
offer their full cooperation in bring-
ing in new plants, the researchers
said, if they are sure the new manu-
facturer will be a substantial, per-
manent part of the community.
If many large industries do lo-
cate in this section, more rail trans-
portation will be needed badly, the
Little report said.
Gulf County Rep. Cecil Costin,
who. introduced the bill to,, provide
the survey, said he would consider
introducing in the 1959 Legislature
a bill to survey the needs for barge
terminals along the Apalachicola
River at Bristol, Blountstown, Mar-
ianna and Chattahoochee.
Included in Thursday night's re-
port was a recommendation for the
creation of a Florida rivers and
harbors commission. The new state
board would coordinate the work
of local port authorities, provide ba-
sic research and act as a liaison
agency in securing federal funds
for waterway development.
All members of the Retail
Merchants Division of the Port
St. Joe Chamber of Commerce
are urged to attend a general
meeting Monday night at 7:30
p.m. at the City Hall.
Plans will be discussed at the
meeting for the Merchant's an-
nual Christmas celebration and

Pontiac's new Tempest 420E V-8 sets the year's most important

DRIVING 7IME. . 60.72 HOURS ,
We asked one of America's most respected
car testers-"Uncle Tom" McCahill-to put
a standard Pontiac Catalina Sedan with our
new economy V-8 to the test.
And with only one specification-that the run
would be exactly like you would drive coast to
coast yourself-in mountains, in city traffic, across
deserts, buying gas wherever the tank ran low.
And here's the phenomenal story in every com-
plete detail-all officially certified by NASCAR,
America's top automobile competition authority.
America's Number () Road Car
What does it mean to you?
Simply-and very importantly-this: For the first:
time, you can get deep-chested V-8 pep with
better mileage than from many smaller so-called
"economy cars" and get it on regular fuel
If you owned a Pontiac with this new Tempest
420E V-8 you'd be saving up to 5 cents a gallon on
regular fuel. This new economy V-8 is optional at
no extra cost on any Hydra-Matic Pontiac!

It is no longer necessary that a

Severely disabled people who can
meet these requirements should

similar to a waiver of premiums.

Congressman Bob Sikes paid his annual visit to Port St.
Joe last Thursday, when at the invitation of the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce, he spoke before a gathering of about 175 at
the Centennial Building last Thursday at noon. The Congress-
man appeared before the members of the Chamber of Commerce
and the various civic clubs of Port St. Joe.
Sikes told the group of some of

Sikes warned that the cold war
might continue for as long as 50
years, or even longer. "The Russian
has proven that he is patient and
that the American is urgent to get
on with the job. The question is,
can the Russians out-wait the
American impatience". -
Sikes warned of the dangers of
too much power for our Supreme
Court. He used as an example, the
most current integration crisis.
"Neither race wants our public
school system ruined, but the Su-
preme Court edicts are rapidly do-
ing this", he declared. Sikes report-
ed that in 32 out of 39 cases the
Supreme Court had ruled in favor
of cases involving Communism."
Sikes took a stab at ambitious
Senators by reporting that a bill
to protect state laws and rights had
been passed by the House by a big
majority. The bill was killed in the
Senate by a majority of one vote.

Expanded Hospital A Community Need
In our humble opinion, the City Commission and espec-
ially Mayor J. L. Sharit are to be offered the heartiest of con-
gratulations and our expressions of gratitude for their untiring
and at times seemingly hopeless task of securing for Port St. Joe
the hospital facilities that it so sorely needs. Not only have they
been able to provide funds for immediate needs, but they have
provided the means for securing enough hospital space and the
type of equipment that will serve the city for years to come.
Port St. Joe is growing, despite the set-backs of this past year in
business'-and paper mill operations. Since the hospital was over-
crowded six or eight years ago, it is evident that that facility
now needs expansion. And with the city growing, it only makes
good sense to expand to provide for future growth.
While we are handing- out bouquets, we would like to
hand an especial pretty one to Miss Minerva McLane, adminis-
trator of the hospital. Never has that institution operated so
efficiently as under her direction. We would also like to point
out that under her supervision, the hospital has operated longer
in the black that in all the years of its establishment.
Quite a feat, Miss Minerva, and we, the taxpayers, are
proud of you for it.
Not only is the hospital overcrowded but facilities for pro-
viding needed services are worn out. The proposed new con-
struction will provide a sorely needed new operating room fully
equipped and much other equipment needed at the hospital.
Every piece of equipment is antiquated many years hence and
worn out all except the x-ray machine which was purchased
three years ago.
We appreciate the Commission's efforts along these lines
to improve our community and we want them to know it.'

Cartledge was paying his last of-
ficial visit to the local club and
brought praises with him for their
activities of the year. Cartledge
praised the club's grade which was,
raised from an average of 63 at the
beginning of his tenure to an aver-
age of 86 now.
In his talk on several different
subjects, Lt. Gov. Cartledge gently
chided the local club for not rea-
lizing the full' importance of Port
St. Joe. "Many .Florida firsts have
happened right here in Port St.
Joe", said Cartledge, and went on
to name several firsts such as the
first railroad in Florida, the signing
of Florida's first constitution and
other such important items in the
history of Florida.
