Representative Cecil (LoAiti is
hunting ideas to present up at the
State Legislature beginning nl('t
month. Cecil has no doubt beon
given much advice about what
would be good for the county and
for the state-all costing more mos-
ey. But probably the most advice
he has had is "don't raise taxes",
Yessir, give us all the gravy but
don't you let it cost us anything
Pitiful isn't it, how the taxpayer
has come to be like his children?
Some of us put children on an al-
lowance every week. They don't
have to do anything for it---just be
at home on allowance paying day.
We're a lot like that too. "Give us
,benefits, but don't make us work
for them".
Personally, we would like to >ee
some of these "benefits" out onl
and the tax burden lowered-then
maybe we could buy some of these
"benefits" out of our own pocket.
A good place to start with this.
kind ot "revolution" would be in
the big spending city itself-- Wash.
ington, D. C.

We have a little bill that Cecil
could mull over, and it wouldn't
raise the taxes a might.
We would like to see a law pas-
sed requiring all these little foreign
"bugs" to be painted fire engine
red, so you can see the little bug-
gers. We just about backed right
over one the other day. We looked
back and there was nothing there.
Just as we started back we heard
this high pitched horn squawking
like a scared chicken and here
came this little foreign "bug" out.
by our left side. It like to have got
squashed!

We were up at White City Tues-
day night to the Gulf County Forest'
Ji're D'evention Committee meet-
Sing.. Representative Costin and
Senator Bart Knight were there for
-the forest service people to get in
a fe( licks about their money needs
for the next two years.
How that Bart Knight can talk.
We just don't believe he can give
-the time of day in less than 200
words.

Jimmy McNeili, chairman of this
Committee, put on the feed at
Tuesday night's meeting. And, of
course, being as how Jimmy is a
seafood dealer, he had plenty of
oysters on hand--fixed every way
an oyster is good. He had them
raw, stewed and fried. And they
were good all three ways.

Speaking of oysters, we see where
Sandspurs over in the Panama City
News is complaiffthg (only slight-
ly) of the "freshness" of the oys-
ters nowadays. He says the tasi e
isn't quite up to par. Then he gal-
lently comes back to say that even
though they are "fresh" they are
better than oysters found else-
where.

Dickens Tells Rotary

About Gas Company

Local attorney Benjamin H. Dick-
ens spoke before the Rotary Club
last Thursday, giving some of the
highlights of a natural gas company
that is seeking a franchise to op-
erate in Port St. Joe. Dickens is
the attorney for the firm.
Dickens dwelled for a good period
of his time on the shares of the
proposed corporation. He said that
there would be 150,000 shares avail-
able for local investors at $1.00
per share after their charter has
been approved by the State. He said
that the stock price had been so
set so as to assure a wide owner-
ship. "This wide -ownership will
make us a stronger organization
and, too, the person that has stock
in the company will naturally be
interested in buying gas from his
company", Dickens said.
Dickens pointed out some of the
advantages of a privately owned
system, the main point being that
the rates of a privately owned sys-
tem would be governed by the Flor-
ida Public Utillities Commission
whereby the municipality could set
any rate on the service that they
wanted to.
'Dickens estimated that the aver-
age home-owner would save up to
one third of his present fuel bill
with natural gas.
His company estimates that the
system will cost around $325,000.00.
Guests of the club Thursday were
Ed Jones of Brown City, Mich., and
Wade Sellers of Pensacola.

Visitors From DeFuniak
Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Blake
Thomason and Mr. and Mrs. Arnold
Daniell last week end were their
mother, Mrs. Thomason and bro-
thers Coy and Landrum from De-
Funiak Springs.

Use of Cancer Fund

Dollar Is Explained

(Kiwanian Harold Odom present-
ed the program to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday noon. Odom talked
about the Cancer Society from a
businessman's standpoint. Odom
weighed what was put into the fight
against cancer by what the people
receive in progress 'toward licking
this. dread malady.
Odum said that in 1957 Ameri-
cansspent $31,000,000 in all phases
of the Cancer Society work. "This
seems like a lot of money", said
Odom, "but let's take a look at just
how little it really is". In compari-
son Odom said Americans spent
181 times this amount for cigar-
ettes; 342 times this amount for
beverage alcohol and 42 times this
amount for theatre tickets.
In the state of Florida there was
17.3c per person contributed to the
Cancer operation, or 1 per each
$1,000 income in the state.
"Just where does this money go?"
Odom asked. He called attention to
the great percentages that went in-
to the actual work of combatting
cancer; 28% for research; 27% for
service to cancer patients; 30% to
educating people to the danger sig-
nals of c.,., 8% for administra-
tion and 7% for fund raising.
Odom .said that from a business
standpoint, the dollars put into the
battle against cancer were being
utilized most effectively.
Guests of the club were Key Club-
ber Tony Barbee and Harris Har-
per of St. Andrew.

North Florida Solons Oppose


Collins New Revision Plan

TALLAHASSEE Gov. LeRoy Collins this week unveiled people which had been expressed


a new constitutional revision program designed to win approval
of the people. He immediately ran into hot opposition from North
Florida senators on the old stumbling block of reapportionment.
Senate President-designate Dewey Johnson of Quincy said
he didn't like anything about the complex reapportionment for-
mula because it was based in the main on population,

Johnson told newsmen he might
attempt to substitute for Collins'
plan the 45-senator, 114-representa-
tive plan contained in the 1957 re-
vision knocked out by the Florida
Supreme Court.
Hard to Understand
Lgeislators and others in the au-
dience which heard. the first ex-
planation of the program had dif-
ficulty in understanding the reap-
portionment formula.
Road Chairman Joe Grotegut, a
member of the special committee
which drew up the formula, said
it was based upon proportion of
population of the county or Senate
district to the state's population
as a whole.
First reapportionment under the
plan would 'be done by the 1961
Legislature on the basis of the
1960 .census.


other counties on the basis of "fair-
ness and equity." No district could
contain more thai four counties.
Dade county under the govern-
or's proposal could get two senators
instead one. The plan provides
that any county constituting a dis-
trict -and having more than 12 per
cent of the state's total population
shall have one added senator for
each 12 per cent of population or
major fraction thereof.
Johnson said his major objection
was that the plan gave no consid-
eration to the fact that each of the
67 counties was a political subdivi-
sion. He said a small county which
was part of a four-county Senate
district would have only one-eighth
of the voting strength of Dade
County with two senators.
Grotegut said the program was
designed to meet the wishes of the

in defeating the 67-senator plan
and in objecting to the 1957 revi-

Backs '57 Plan
Johnso said he didn't see how
the Legislature could improve on
the .1957 formula which provided
for 45 Senate districts to be dis-
tributed on the basis of "popula-
tion and such other pertinent fac-
.tors as may be determined by the
Legislature at the time of appor-
tionment."
The present formula calls for ap-
portioning the senate into 38 dis-
tricts as nearly equal in population
as practicable.
Rep. Mallory Horne of Leon,
chairman of the House Constitu-
tional Revision Committee, said he
and Rawls would meet soon to de-
cide whether their committees
should begin consideration of the
revision program before the Legis-

lature convenes April 7.
The House formula calls for one
representative for each county hav-
ing a population of not more than
nine-tenths of one per cent of the
state's total population.
Added Reresentatives
There would be two representa-
tives for each county having a pop-
ulation of more than nine6tenths
of one per cent but not more than
3 per cent.
There would be chree represen-
tatives for each county having 3 to
6 per cent of population.
There would be four for each
county having 6 to 12 per cent.
For each county with more than
12 per cent, there would be one
added representative fo reach ad-
ded six per cent or major fraction.
On the basis of the 1957 population
estimate, Dade County would get
six representatives.
Another feature ot the program
provides for a Supreme Court re-
view of a reapportionment bill ve-
toed b ythe governor to determine
whether it met constitutional re-
quirements. If the Supreme Court
decided it was constitutional, it
would sand. Otherwise the Legisla-
ture would have to go back to work.

1. It can mean the beginning of a whole new
life in a car especially built for people!
Everywhere, the 59 Ford is recognized as the
World's Most Beautifully Proportioned Car. Yet
many people are just now discovering that Ford
is beautifully proportioned inside as well as out.
2. All of your passengers-including the
"man in the middle" get a full-cushioned ride,
full head room, full leg room.
Every seat has fult-depth springing and cushion-
ing in a Ford. And all seats are high enough so
you and all your passengers sit normally, ride
relaxed-and comfortably!
3. You and everyone who r'des with you can
keep hats on can enter and leave with ease.
Ford door openings are extra wide. And front
doors stay open when you want them to, thanks
to Ford's exclusive 2-stage door checks.
4. You get a full-sized roof which shades
all passengers from the sun. You get a
full-sized, easy-to-reach trunk, too!
Everyone has a roof over his head in a Ford. And
there's no need to stand on tiptoe to load
Ford's trunk!
5. It can mean tremendous savings-right from
the start. Because Fora is built for savings, too!
Check the price tag, you'll see! Ford is priced
lowest of the most popular three. And that's
just the beginning of Ford savings.


6. You can expect to save as much as $1 on
every tank of gas ... go more miles between
oil changes!
Whether you choose a Six or ThundeAW rd
V-8, both standard Ford engines thrive on
"regular" gas-saving you up to a dollar a
tankful. And with Ford's standard .full-flow oil
filtration, you save on oil changes, too,

7. You can forget about waxing the ',
Diamond Lustre Finish. It'll never need Itl
While many cars offer finishes which need
waxing frequently, Ford's brand-new Diamond

Report Soc Sec

People who work for themselves
in a business, trade or procession
are reminded by John V. Carey,
district manager of the Panama
City social security office, to report
their earnings for social security
purposes with their income 'tax re-
turns. For most business people
this return is due on or before Ap-
ril 15, 1959, and the social security
tax rate for 1958 is 3 3-8 percent of
the first $4200 of net earnings.
Since Federal income tax returns
are used not only for reporting the
amount of income for Income tax
purposes but also for reporting self-
employment income for social se-
curity credits, it is necessary that
a complete and accurate Schedule
C be filed with the income tax form
1040. If net income from a trade
or business was $400 or more, so-
cial security taxes must 'be paid on
these net earnings. This is com-
pulsory even though no income tax
is due. Self-employed persons some-
times overlook their responsibilities
for paying social security taxes be-


cause they have enough exemptions
so that they don't owe any income
tax.
Mr. Carey concluded with the re-
minder that maintaining complete
and accurate records is good busi-
ness from many standpoints, and
these records are particularly val-
uable when income tax time rolls
around. In preparing the business
Schedule C, it is important that on-
ly operating profit from the busi-
ness be included in income and
that all allowable expenses be list-
ed. So, a complete and accurate in-
come tax return filed on or before
April 15 will serve a dual purpose
-It will satisfy the Internal Reve-
nue filing requirement and will
guarantee proper earnings credits
to your social security account.
The social security office for this
area is located at 522 Mercer Ave-
nue, Panama City, Florida. The tel-
ephone number is POplar 3-5331.

THANKS, MIKE!
With the presentation by Senator A. S. (Mike) Monroney
of Senate Bill S. 1306 to "reestablish a large measure of uniformity
in the limits of size and weight of parcels mailed between all
post offices in the United States", Congress is confronted with the
opportunity for genuine service to all Americans in every corner
of the nation. Our servants in Washington may now throw out
bodily that abortive legislation of 1952 known officially as "Public"
Law 199 -- and better known to a confused and long-suffering
people as the "public-be-damned law".
In his speech introducing his bill, Senator Monroney noted
that: "Remedy, so long overdue and so urgently needed by the
Post Office Department and mailers is contained in my present
proposal" and expressed the hope that "other members will join
me in curing this sorry situation early in this session."
"Parcel Post", the Senator said, ". is a major factor in the
promotion of our nation's commerce and trade For small busi-
ness, particularly, parcel post is an almost indispensable business
tool." He noted that for 20 years prior to 1952 a single, uniform
regulation governed the size and weight of parcel post packages
that could be shipped to and from every US post office, but that
with the enactment of P. L. 199 in 1952, three differing regulations
replaced orderly operation with a bewilderment that has been
growing ever since.
"Operating confusion and heavy added expense has been
experienced by both the Post Office Department and parcel post
users as a result of P. L. 199," declared Senator Monroneyo"The
Post Office Department suffered a net revenue loss in excess of
$70 million in the first year of operation of P.L. 199, according to
testimony of Department representatives to Congress.
"The Department further informed Congress 'that P.L.
199 has created operational difficulties, losses of postal reve-
nues, and widespread public misunderstanding and dissatisfac-
tion.'
"The users of parcel post through the intervening years,"
said the Senator, "have paid heavily in increased expense for labor
and materials and in higher postal rates as a result of P.L. 199."
Thus, the indictment would seem not only official, but
sweeping. By way of making it complete, Senator Monroney, in
recalling earlier comments on the subject, admitted he was a
party to P.L. 199 in 1952 and is "not very proud" of it. One
purpose of the law, he said, "was to assist the Railway Express
Agency in overcoming its deficit and loss of business," but cited
figures to show it had not even accomplished this.

GOVERNOR LEROY COLLINS, Honorary Chairman of the 1959 Flor-
ida Cancer Crusade, presents a proclamation calling upon the peo-
ple of Florida to support the program of the American Cancer So-
ciety, to 0. A. Jenkins of Jacksonville, 1959 Florida Cancer Crusade
chairman. Governor Collins requested Mr. Jenkins to express his
appreciation to the many thousands of volunteer cancer crusaders
who are supporting the program of cancer control of the American
Cancer Society and in his proclamation, urged Florldlans to learn
the facts about cancer that are vital to personal protection against
death from this disease.


Proclamation
WHEREAS, the President of the
United States, by direction of an
Act of Congress has proclaimed
April as Cancer Control Month, and
WHEREAS, progress is being
made against cancer on every front
-in research and in earlier detec-
tion and better treatment, and
WHEREAS, cancer research cov-
ers the whole spectrum of science,
and it it is to grow requires ever-
increasing funds to finance the ef-
forts of America's 'best scientific
minds, and
WHEREAS, there is an air of
expectancy throughout the entire
field of cancer control;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, LeRoy
Collins, by virtue of the authority
vested in me as Governor of the
State of Florida, do hereby pro-
claim April, 1959, as
CANCER CONTROL MONTH
in Florida, and urge Floridians to
observe this month through increas-
ed support of the efforts of the
American Cancer Society and by
Learning all the facts about cancer


Seven years of consistent andi mounting failure not only that are vital ot personal protec-

passage of the Monroney Bill.


All Roads Lead Toward A 'Summit'
From Washington, where President Eisenhower is welcom-
ing Prime Minister Macmillan; from Moscow, where Premier
Khruschev holds a generally conciliatory press conference; where
other major capitals, where diplomats are working out details of
a Western reply to the Soviet move against Berlin, all roads now
apparently lead toward negotiation.
In Ottawa, following talks with Canadian Prime Minister
Diefenbaker, Mr. Macmillan expressed confidence that his travels ,
were cementing a unity in which the West can find strength "to
combine firm principals with readiness to negotiate."
Meeting correspondents en masse for only the second'
time since he became Premier, Mr. Khruschev forecast that an
East-West foreign ministers meeting will convene by May 11 and
that Moscow will consider any reasonable proposals from the
West.
To be reasonable from a freeworld point of view, the first
requirement for such proposals must be taht they demand of the
Communist side concessions at least as great as any offered by
the West on Germany.
It is not impossible, however, to formulate a rational posi-
tion. The question then is whether enough flexibility or any
flexibility exists on the Communist side to make negotiation
profitable. Mr. Khrushchev's pretense to two West German Social
Democratic leaders that "no one wants Germany reunified" is
not encouraging.
Yet the machinery grinds toward a foreign ministers con-
ference, and after that probably a "summit" meeting of chiefs of
state, then possibly another foreign ministers conference to get
down to cases. Out of it the West can prove at least that it is
willing to negotiate. Then the question will be whether inter-
national communism is ready to negotiate in any real and mean-
ingful sense. -- Christian Science Monitor

Plain talk to the man who thinks


"all cars are built alike today"


"The one thing we know
car buyers want above
S all in an automobile is
J quality. Yet many people
assume that all cars today
are pretty much the same
J. EMMET JUDGE in this respect.
This is far from being the case. I can
name at least 30 basic differences in
the design of our '59 Mercury. Natu-
rally, we feel these differences make
Mercury a better car. For example:
EXTRA STRENGTH STARTS WITH THE FRAME
The backbone of every Mercury is the
frame. We use a heavy box-type con-
struction-the heaviest in the industry.
Competitors use frames that are up to
125 pounds lighter.
WE BUILD QUALITY YOU CAN SEE
Compare the way Mercury builds en-
gine hoods. Most competitive cars use
what is known as a single-panel con-


Port St. Joe '


struction. This type of hood can be
twisted and turned with the slightest
pressure-often flutters and vibrates
when the car is in motion. At Mercury,
on the other hand, we use a double-
panel construction-two layers of
steel with the insulation sandwiched
in between. Not only is Mercury's
hood more rigid, but it looks better.
YOU FEEL THE QUALITY WITH EVERY STOP...
Mercury brakes are the largest in the
field-with up to 22% more brake lin-
ing than competitive cars. And only
Mercury in its field has brakes that
adjust themselves mechanically. You
save money by eliminating periodic
adjustments. And you are safer be-
cause Mercury brakes stay properly
adjusted for the life of the linings.
...AND .EVERY TIME YOU TAKE THE WHEEL
All 1959 Mercurys have a flexible cou-
pling installed in the steering system.


ST. JOE MOTOR


This acts as an insulator-absorbs road
shocks that would otherwise travel up
to the steering wheel. Mercury, unlike
some cars, gives you this with either
manual or power steering.
WE HAVE PLENTY OF PROOF THAT THIS IS
THE BEST-BUILT CAR IN AMERICA TODAY
We know it is the greatest Mercury
ever designed and built. Never in
Mercury's 20-year history have we had
so much value in the product itself.
Mercury has advantages everywhere
over competition. The four described
on this page are only typical. In future
messages I'll tell you about dozens
more-in styling, comfort, in every-
thing you want in a car."

grade children.
Mr. Huie's class has chosen "Air"
as their project. They are prepar-
ing experiments to show the pres-
sure of air on objects.
Miss Sellers' class has chosen
"Insects" as their project. They
plan to make a collection of insects
and do research for booklets. They
also plan to do some art work in
'connection with this study.
Both groups are doing well with
addition, subtraction and multipli-
cation of fractions. The children
find circles and squares, cut into
parts help them to better under-
stand the real meaning of frac-
tions.
In studying measurements we
found it interesting to compare a
quart used in Canada with the quart
used in the United States. Bill
Baynton, a fifth grade pupil- was
able to bring to the classroom the
quart jar for comparison. We found
that the quart used in Canada will
hold about one cup more than the
quart used in the United States.
