President Puts $1,183,000.00 In
Budget For Local Harbor Work
Harry H. Saunders received word Monday of this week
that President Eisenhower has placed $1,183,000.00 in the
national budget to provide harbor improvements for Port
St. Joe. The local port received $576,000.00 from the Gov-.
ernment last year for harbor work in addition to the new
The good word came from Senator Spessard L. Holland.
These funds will provide money to deepen Port St. Joe's
harbor to 35 feet and the bar entrance to the harbor to 37
feet. The funds will also provide for extensive widening of
the channel in St. Joseph's Bay. Improvements to Port St.
Joe's harbor will place the city in a better position to even-
tually become the deep water ocean outlet for the Apala-
chicola Waterway system which stretches to Atlanta, Ga.

Mr. A. was a successful
young business and civic leader.
His life was miserable from
morning until night. He went
to his doctor who soon found,
his problem beyond the reach
of medicine or surgery. He ad-
vised him to go to his pastor.
"Your trouble is spiritual." Mr.
A. wept as he unburdened his
soul in the pastor's study. The
burden of unforgiven sin was
smothering his life.
Another man, Mr. B., when
a child, had slipped secretly
into a theater without paying
for his ticket. A less sensitive
person from a non-Christian
house would not have given the
incident a second thought, but
not this Mr. B. His guilt both-
ered himr so much that at the
age of twentytwo he returned
to the theater, told the manager
what he had done and paid for
Both Mr. A. and Mr. B. de-
spised themselves fbr what they
had done. They needed assur-
ance of God's forgiveness to
free them from their guilt .of
their sin. They should realize
that the teachings of Jesus con-
cerning forgiveness apply to
every area of life. Peter asked

The ancient feast together of the

During busy times of cooking in the kitchen, any labor-saving idea
is a good one. A meal easy to prepare and as easy to serve is doubly
appreciated since it saves scouring those extra pots and pans.
Such a meal is this frankfurter "barbecue," cooked and served in a
new Corning Ware skillet. This skillet looks and feels like fine china
yet can easily go from freezer to rangetop to table. It saves so much
time and energy when you can, cook, freeze, reheat and serve in thel
The skillet (and matching saucepans, too) can save as many as four
extra cooking pans and serving dishes to wash during a single meal.
-< BARBECUED FRANKFURTERS K.
To serve six, prepare the barbecue sauce by adding the following to
2 tablespoons of melted fat in skillet: 1.cup chopped onion; 1 cup
tomato catsup,; % cup water; 2 tablespoons brown sugar; % teaspoon
salt; %- teaspoon black pepper; % teaspoon cayenne; 2 tablespoons
vinegar; % cup lemon juice; 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce; %

"I am a sinner and I've got
to find God," a woman said as
she was about to leave the
church. The pastor invited her
to a corner pew. He suggested
prayer and began to pray, ask-
ing God to help the woman be
willing to repent of every sin
and to accept Jesus Christ as
her Saviour. He then asked her
to pray. She did so.
In a moment there came a
change in the tone of her voice
and she ended her prayer
thanking God for the peace and
satisfaction which had come to
her heart even as she prayed.
While the two prayed to-
gether in the rear of the audi-
torium, the buzz of conversa-
tion ceased. The minister sup-
posed that everyone had left.
But when he stood he saw a
dozen other people here and
there in silent prayer. They
were faithful members of the
church who saw their pastor
was witnessing for Christ and
who went voluntarily to prayer
for the stranger seeking help.
This incident is an illustration
of the conviction held by Bap-
tists that all men who sincerely
desire may truly reach God in
With Baptists, there is no
certain place nor certain time
nor certain position for prayer.
Baptists believe Jesus when he
said: "Him that cometh'to' me
I will in no wise cast out"
The only condition for ap-
proaching God is faith, "He
that comieth to God must be-
lieve that he is, and that he is a
rewarder of them that diligently
seek him" (Hebrews 11:6).
Jesus came from heaven to
earth to tear away the heavy
veils which separated needy
man from holy God. Christ is
the only mediator we need be-
fore GCA. "There :z one God,
and one mediator -ween God
and men, the man ChrisL Jesus"
(1 Timothy 2:5).
Each man is his own priest.
He has within hiniks.f the
ability and the responsibility to.
find and- to know God person-
ally. While friends may help
you to understand how to pray,
no one else can do your pray-
ing for you. Of course there
are hindrances to powerful,
prevailing, satisfying prayer,
such as pride, selfishness, an
unforgiving spirit, and cher-
ished sins. But never forget it,
you can really find God, if you
really want to. "If thou
shalt seek the Lord thy God,
thou shalt find him, if thou
seek him with all thy heart and
with all thy soul" (Denteron-
