Big Fish Story
Some people will go to an aw-

are not wrong.
Take Preacher Byron Smith-
Last week the editor doubted
his Judgment in believing a fish
story concocted by Sam McCa-

The preacher hunted down Sam
and extracted from this fisher-
man the above photo of the fish
he was bragging about. Sam was
not stretching the truth a bit.
The finny monster did weigh 35
pounds. And he was a rock fish.
Sam sold the fish to a Georgian
from Atlanta who took him home
to have it mountUd and brag
about "his catch".
Sam Is doing a little work for
the Chamber of Commerce and

We hereby publicly eat crow,

Live Rattler Milked At Kiwani Club
Meeting; Members Ready to Move Fast
iDenney Seybolt and Willard Ba-
ney of the Snakatorium in Panama,
City presented an interesting pro-
gram to the Kiwanis Club at their
regular weekly meeting Tuesday.
The two gentlemen talked about
and demonstrated some of the poi-
sonous snakes in North America.
iSeybolt told the group that there
is only four poisonous snakes in
North America, the rattler, the
copperhead, cottonmouth and the
coral. All of these except the cop-
perhead are found in this area.
Of these the coral snake is the
most dangerous bgt is the hardest
to get bit by, according to Sey-
bolt. The coral snake must seize
his victim gn4 chew to inject his
poison as his mouth is very little,
A bite from a coral snake is very
rare, Seybolt said. Their poison
can kill within 25 to 30 minutes if
no anti-toxin is administered. He
said the coral can be told from
similar snakes by the fact that he
has a black nose.
Seybolt says the cottonmouth
will always be found around water.
His poison attacks the blood sys-
tem and is a fairly slow worker.
The cottonmouth poison is stronger
than rattler poison. A person re-
ceiving a bite should receive anti-
toxin within two hours.
The rattler has the same kind of
poison as the cottonmouth and is
a stronger snake. The rattler al-
ways strikes to bite. He can strike
about two-thirds of his length.
Seybolt said that a loose-worn
leather boot would stop the ordin-
stressed the practice of cutting and,
sucking of a bite if received. "Be
sure the cut is as deep as the fangs
have entered" said Seybolt. The
poison will not harm you if swal-
lowed as it is merely a protein
similar to egg white. He said egg
white injected directly in the
blood stream will kill just as quick
as a snake bite.
As a climax to his talk Seybolt
milked a live rattler for the Ki-
wanilans. He 'said that a snake
usually dies after he has been milk-
ed as the tissues around his head
are usually damaged by the milk-
ing or his neck is broken. He said
that a rattler is a very nervous
snake and did his striking through
fear or hunting something to eat.
Guests of the club were Edward
Smith, James Knight of the Key
Club, Frazer Frith, Panama City;

and Ashley Costin of Port St. Joe.

they have lost two months. Ele-

We refer to these two years as

point in history.
From 1932 to 1934 the American
people spent 3.6% of their personal
incomes for current operations of
public schools. By 1944 this per-
centage had dropped to 1.7%. Since
1944 there has been a gradual rise
in percentage figures. The latest
available figures give it as 2.6%.
Florida people once spent over
3% of personal incomes for current
operation of schools. Figures for
1956-57 indicate that they spent
2.5% that year.
In 194S-49, the percent of total
state disbursement was 18.3%. For
the year ending June 30, 1958, and
in spite of the increases of 1957,
it was. only 23%.
In 1957, Florida increased its
appropriations considerable, but
estimates indicate that by compar-
ison with other states our ranking
is 35th. We are spending $195.00
per child for current expense while
the national average is about $340
per child. We have to raise the ex-
penditure $45.00 per pupil to get it
to the national average.
It's not a matter wealth, The
American 'people have more money

Sts For All
1)w Aganst Polio
A preventable increase of polio during the forthcoming
summer will occur unless a far larger percentage of the American
people take advantage of the proved protection of the Salk vac-
cine. This sobering conclusion was reached at a conference of
public health officials under auspices of the National Health Coun-
cil in New York City. These significant statistics were cited:
Only half of the 24,000000 children under six years old in
the United States have received the full 3-injection dosage needed
for full protection. Only 77,000,000 of 175,000,000 Americans
have had even one shot, the benefit of which may have already
vanished. Thus the incidence of the disease is again rising.
With Salk vaccine generally available, it would be a national
tragedy to permit the scourge of polio to regain its previous hold.
Do your part to prevent this from happening by seeing to it that
every child and every adult under 40 in your family gets the
full Salk treatment. And do it now! ---GTrr
The Red Cross Our Friend In Need
Each March we Americans rededicate ourselves to the. task
of helping our neighbors in need. This is Red Cross Month a
time when we join and serve with the organization that is on the
job when we need it most.
In Gulf County the Red Cross will begin its annual campaign
for funds on Friday of this week.
We may well ask ourselves, "What does the Red Cross mean
to me as well as to my community and nation?
Almost all of us know part of the answer; have observed or
benefitted from or taken part in Red Cross activities. To get the
whole answer, we have only to look at the record.
In three special situations last summer the Red Cross was on
the job when it meant the most. It was on hand to help U. S. ser-
vicemen when they were rushed to Lebanon in the Near East and
Formost in the western Pacific because of critical international
conditions. By discussions with the East German Red Cross, it
was able to break the deadlock between our government and that
of East Germany, and effect the liberation of the nine American
soldiers forced down in their helicopter behind the Iron Curtain.
Every day last year it helped other servicemen and their
families solve personal and domestic problems, in more than
100,000 instances each month.
The Red Cross was on hand with shelters and hot food when
people in the Carolinas had to flee from the threat of Hurricane
Helene last September.
Throughout the year and across the nation it was on the job
to provide the blood thousands of us, ill or injured, needed to
speed our recovery and in many cases save our lives.
The Red Cross trained over 2,000,000 of us last year in first
aid, water safety, and home nursing. Through the Junior Red
Cross, it helped guide young people to responsible maturity by
teaching them the importance of service to others.
The Red Cross has proved, again and again, that it can be
relied upon all the time and everywhere. Now we must insure
that this vital organization will continue its work during the
coming year, that it is "On the Job When You Need It Most," by
joining and contributing in its member and fund campaign.
Can the Red Cross depend on you to be just as faithful?

TOO LATE TO
By RUSSELL KAY
With the approach of another leg-
islative session it might be well
to consider some of the problems it
will have to face and be giving
some thought to what we as in-
dividual citizens really want it to
You may feel, as many folks do,
that what you think or want as an
individual citizen is of little conse-
quence as far as the final outcome
is concerned. How could one small
voice have any influence as far as
legislative action is concerned?
It may not occur to you that
many thousands of citizens thru-
out the state feel as you do but
not being organized they hesitate
to voice their opinions or make
their wants known.
This attitude is unfair to your
legislators and plays into the hands
of pressure groups, lobbyists and
minorities that are well organized
and on the spot prepared to put
over the legislation they" are sel-
fishly interested in or prevent ac-
tion that might be harmful to them.
There are many ways an individ-
ual can influence legislation. You
can talk to your senator or repre-
sentative acquainting him with just THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
how you feel, you can write let- I
ters outlining your position. Letters or two to the gas tax? Should the
to the press concerning legislative sales tax be increased? Should the
problems always carry weight. All price of milk be regulated? Should
of us have our little circle of friends some departments of state govern-
and neighbors who respect our
opinions and can be influenced to
join in an appeal for or against leg-
A tiny match tossed in the brush
can start a great forest fire and
you can start a chain reaction that
will spread like wildfire until thou-
sands of letters, telegrams and per-
sonal appeals reach legislators
when a major piece of legislation
is under consideration.
The average legislator will wel-
come your help. He is there to
serve you and he needs your inter-
'est and support. He is under con-
stant pressure. He must contend
with powerful lobbies that harass
and stalk him throughout the ses-
sion. Let him know that a large
number of his constituents favor
or oppose certain legislation and
arm him with letters and telegrams,
to prove it and you can rest as-
sured he will put up a real fight
in your behalf in committees and
onl the floor.
Now is the time to make your
wishes known. Do you want segre-
gated schools? Should the Legisla-

Chevy stops quickest... goes farthest on a gallon!
Chevy showed the best brakes of the
leading low-priced three in a test of
repeated stops at highway speeds con-
ducted and certified by NASCAR*.
Chevy also won over the other two in
a NASCAR economy run-with the
highest gas mileage for 6's and V8's at
cruising speeds of just over 55 miles
Here's a car that knows how to get
the most out of a gallon. And it's the
only car in its field to bring you
hydraulic valve lifters in all popular
engines-6 and V8. This means
smoother, quieter performance for you.
There are many other advances just
as fundamental as the efficiency of
Chevrelet's engines and the depend-
ability of its new brakes (with more lin-
ing area than any other low-priced car),
But why not stop by your dealer's and
let Chevy do its own sweet talking!
