Want Dump Moved
A group of aroused citizens

at their regular meeting.
They wanted to protest the to-
cation of a garbage dump which
lies about 700 feet from the near-
Although the Highland View area
is not incorporated, the group in-I
dicated it was upset because the
people from Highland View were
not consulted before the dump was
located. They also protested signs
on HI -. v. 98 which pointed out
the location of the dump.
They felt that there were a lot
better, and more distant, dump
spots available in the county.
Emmett Daniell, who is in charge
of the program for the county,
came forward at the request of the
County Board to provide some back-
ground on the Highland View dump.

TWO PIES AND CONGEALED
SALAD CAUSES CAR TO WRECK
Port St. Joe can hold its head up high when it comes to mak-
ing part of the unusual happenings of the world.
Last Sunday about 1:00 p.m. two pies and a congealed salad
caused another little oddity to come about. Mrs. Florazelle Con-
nell was transporting these delectible tidbits in her automobile
and went to turn in to Long Avenue at the Florida Bank building.
Just as she went around the curve, the pies and the salad started
toward the floor, where they could become an unappetizing heap
of gook, if allowed to continue on their erring ways.
Mrs. Connell, naturally, grabbed at the sliding goodies to
bring them back out of harm's reach.
Mrs. Connell's car, not knowing of the drama going on in its
innards, continued on its way, not looking where it.was going.
Before either the car, or Mrs. Connell, realized it, the car was
climbing the curb, running right over the stop sign and nuzzling
up against the Bank building wall. By this time, both Mrs. Con-
nell and the car realized what was about and brought the ma-
chine to a halt.
The damage? One fender, one "stop" sign, Mrs. Connell's
pride-and-two pies and a congealed salad.

Dead Lakes Dam
Piling Is Driven
Last. Thursday, March 1'2, Scott
Construction Company drove the
first piling at the site of the Dead
Lakes Dam and bridge project. It
went down 110 feet.
Two pilings driven closer inshore
the next day went down an average
of 50 feet.
On hand to watch the piling go
down were Carey, John and Coch-
ran Scott, the contractors; B. L.

Jim Wolf, assistant engineer; Karl
Marshall, project engineer; State
Road Department employees: John
Hill, chief inspector; Thomas Will-

Since last report, land fill has
been hauled the full length of the
approach to the bridge, a distance
of 1,300 feet. Capping-off clay is
now being hauled, packed and lev-
eled along this approach from the
west. Unseasonably wet weather
has slowed down hauling fill dirt
since the first load was moved
from the Cleckley tract to the
western approach to the dam site.
Completion of this project will
provide access to some 8,000 acres
of land between the Chipola and
Apalachicola rivers, a potential
port on the Apalachicola River for
Wewahitchka, and an adequate
water level for the Dead Lakes-

Young Drivers Need Supervision
The memory is still fresh in our minds of last week's near
tragedy when two under-age drivers wrecked one of the youth's
parent's automobile out on Garrison Avenue. While neither of
the boys were hurt bad, the automobile was in such condition
that both might have easily been killed.
And, we the people are to blame.
The editor of this newspaper is to blame as much as any-
body. For several months it has painfully evident to us that under
age drivers were being allowed or at least were doing it to
drive their parent's car about town without the proper supervision
as provided by Florida's restricted driver's license. Let us be
hasty to remark that the parent of the driver involved last Tues-
day night was not so foolhardy as to allow his youngster to drive
unsupervised. Just about any day, on any street in town, one
can see 14 arid 15 year olds driving cars about the city, unsuper-
vised. This is strictly in violation of the Florida law.
Last Tuesday's accident should bring home forcefully why
the provision of having a licensed driver in the car with an un-
der age driver is in existence. Youths of this age just do not
realize what a lethal weapon an automobile can be nor do they
realize how quickly an automobile hurtling along at 60 miles per
hour or better can get out of control and become a mass of scrap
We believe youths of this age should begin to learn how to
handle an automobile in their "learning years", but certainly a
little more vigilance on our parts should be exercised to see
that these young embryo drivers adhere to the law.

part of the machinery and directly
affected by its operations. Conse-

The Remarkable Story of
Wide-Track Wheel Design
How It Started How It Works
What This Highly Successful
Pontiac A achievement Means to You
It all started, as most innovations do, with a problem
:to be solved.
The problem was that when you. turned a corner
or rounded a curve your car swayed and everybody
'aboard leaned with the force of the turn.
Over the past few years car body widths have bee
increased to give you more passenger room and col.
fort. But widths between the wcelcels have not in-
creased proportionately. This between-wheel width is
called the "track".
A wide body 'without a wide track is top-heavy,
lacks balance, looks awkward. It's a little like a husky
football player;, wearing wide r.houlder pads and dainty
ballet slippers, running with his feet close together.
'The answ'ei was simply to 'Viiden the track to match
the body. .Ve moved the wheels five inches farther
apart: This'widened 'the stance, but not the car. This
was the birth of Wide-Track Wheel dle:ign.
You use the same principle and feel a similar effect
when you stand erect with your feet spread wide apart.
' You're braced and steady.
LEAN AND SWAY REDUCED
Our first road tests showed how significantly we had
reduced lean and sway. The car held to the turns and
hugged the curves as had no other car we had ever
driven, except for sport cars, which of course are not
designed primarily for passenger comfort,
This greater stability gave -the driver a noticeably
improved feeling of security, control and confidence.
All passengers, back and front, rode with less fatigue,
IMMEDIATE PUBLIC ACCEPTANCE
It usually takes car owners a little time and many
miles to be convinced of the merits of many automo-
bile engineering improvements. That's because some
improvements are far removed from the car owner's
everyday driving experience.
Not so. with Wide-Track Wheels. There was an
immediate understanding of what we had done and a
fast and favorable response to its advantages.
From the first week our dealers began demonstrat-
ing the 1959 Pontiac, we knew Wide-Track Wheel
design was every bit the accomplishment we had hoped
for. People who drove the car told us it was the finest,
easiest handling automobile they'd ever been in.
ALL THE NEW PONTIACS?
Pontiac sales, we are happy to report, have confirmed
public opinion. This car has apparently captured the
imagination of tasteful people who were looking for
clean, uncluttered styling. People attracted by the
quality of workmanship and attention to detail we
give every single Pontiac we build. And, of course,
people quick to grasp the remarkable story of Wide-
Track Wheel design.
YOUR NEW PONTIAC
Investing in a brand-spanking new auto0ohbile, fresh,
sweet-smelling and totally different is a wonderful
thing to happen to a family in the spring, Wouldn't
it do your morale good to become the owner of a
gorgeous new Wide-Track Pontiac within the next
We are confident it is an automobile in which you
will take great pride and from which you will reap
much personal satisfaction and enjoyment.

Methodist Women To
Begin 2bk Study
The Methodist women are soon
to begin the serious study of Isa-
iah, based on the text by S. Paul
Schilling, a timely, pertinent, in-
spired message to 20th Century
Christians. The study will be held
at the Methodist Church, beginning
on Tuesday, March 31. The four ses-
sions will be held on that day and
Thursday, April 2, on Tuesday, Ap-
ril 7 and on Thursday, April 9.
iEach session will begin promptly
at 9:30 a.m. and close at 11:00.
All members of the Woman's
Society of Christian Service are
urged to read the book of Isaiah
in preparation for this study and
to check passages for discussion.
Cutbacks Planned In
Insect Control Force
At least two part-time workers
under; the Mosquito Control Pro-
gram will be laid off, shortly, for
about four or five wek-es.
The reason, according to the Su-
pervisor,. Emmett Daniell, is that
funds for some part' time work are
due to run out right away and
none will be available for that part
time work until other part time
work is scheduled 'to begin-work
like. mosquito spraying, dogfly Log-
ging, hand clearing, etc.'
Some of the part time work cate-_
gories are mosquito control, dog-
fly control, hand clearing. Now, if
hand clearing work is scheduled
for winter months and insect con-
trol for spring and summer, the
same employees, may be hired for
*hand clearing and then hired for
insect control, since the work is
seasonal and one type of part time
work follows on the heels of an-
other. However, if the hand clear-
ing funds are exhausted before the
insect control is scheduled to be-
gin, monies may not be transferred
from one fund to another.
Mosquito spraying begins in Ap-
ril and dogfly spraying on July 1.
