an otherwise ordinary person.

Tommy swears up and down that

REQUEST PARED BY $183,000.00
ST. JOE HARBOR GETS ANOTHER
MILLION FROM GOVERNMENT
In a telegram to The Star Tuesday, Congressman
Bob Sikes reports that the House Appropriations Committee
has approved a request for $1,000,000 for completion of the
St. Joseph Harbor dredging work. Sikes said in his telegram
that he anticipated no difficulty in obtaining approval by
the House of this item.
The original budget request for the Port St. Joe dredg-
ing was for $1,183,000 but this amount was trimmed down to
a round million dollars by an economy-minded group.
Work is currently underway now in St. Joseph's Bay
on dredging provided in last year's budget. The present'
work is expected to last until the end of the year with a pipe-
line dredge clearing the harbor and a hopper dredge clean-
ing out the channel.
After the dredging work is completed, Port St. Joe
will have a channel with an average of 34 feet in depth.

On several occasions fishermen
in boats have ventured into the
opening on the downstream side of
Jim Woodruff Powerhouse. This is
very dangerous as the water is al-
ways turbulent and could become
violently turbulent. When necessary
the volume of water discharged can
'be cut completely off or doubled in
five seconds and would be dan-
gerous for any normal size boat.
The Jim Woodruff Powerhouse,
Lock and Dam is operated by the
Department of the Army, 'Corps-of
Engineers, Mobile District, and is
under Security Regulationis. These
Regulations also prohibit boats en-
tering under the Powerhouse.
The local Coast Guard Station at
the Dam, under command of F. C.
Hemmingway, Boastwain Mate, 1st
Class, has the authority to arrest
for such violation and his office
will be called if any-further viola-
tions occur. The public is requested
to cooperate for their own safety.

Quadricentennial Florida's 400th
Birthday celebration has raised
the curtain on an expedition of sur-
prising size -and spectacular qual-

giants such as the Chemstrand Cor-

Why? Because they figure up all the

equipment. They carefully consider
the economy of the Rocket Engine
.. the low-cost maintenance of an
Olds ... its higher resale value. But
most of all they ask themselves,
"Is this the kind of car my family

one that I give us the full

The overwhelming "yes" can be

field in seven big ways.
BEST BRAKES... In direct com-

CAR*, Chevy out-stopped both the
other leading low-priced cars-and
why not: Chevy brakes are far larger,
built with bonded linings for up 'to
66% longer life. BEST TRADE-IN
... Check the figures in any N.A.D.A.t
Guide Book. You'll find that Chevy
used car prices last year averaged up to
$128 higher than comparable models
of the "other two." BEST STYLE
. Popular Science magazine sums it
'National Association for Stock Car Advancement
tAutomobile Manufacturers Association
up: "The fact is, in its price class the
Chevy establishes a new high in daring
styling ." It's the only car of the
leading low-priced three that's un-
mistakably modern in every line.
BEST ECONOMY ... No doubt
about this: two Chevrolet Sixes won
their class in the famous Mobilgas
Economy Run, got the best mileage of
any full-size car. BEST ROOM...
Official dimensions reported to A.M.A.t
make this clear. For example, Chevy
front seat hip room is up to 5.9 inches
wider than comparable cars. BEST
and Research tNational Automobile Dealers A
ENGINE ... Every motor magazine
has given Chevy's standard and
Corvette V8's unstinted praise. As
Sports Cars Illustrated puts it: "Indeed,
this device is surely the most wonder-
fully responsive engine available today
at any price." BEST RIDE .

gypsum dissolves in water (you

The gypsum is washed down
from the mountains near the basin
in which the dunes are located and
into a marsh. Here the water evap-
orates and leaves selenite crystals
which are broken down and picked
up by the wind. Eventually they

Schuchart Tells Rotary
Of Phone Co. Growth
P, M. (SI) Schxohart, manager
of operations of the St. 'Joseph
Teteiehone and Telegraph Company
gave the Port 9t. Joe Rotary Ch1b
a few Interesting facts coheertini
the future of his dompaniy at thii
club's Thursday meeting.
He said that the scenery in Port'
St. Joe would be changed in the
very near future by the installation
of microwave towers for the trans
mission, of long distance calls. The
microwave towers will also play an
important part in some government
work that the local phone company
is getting into.
As an example of the growth o
the company, he said that las
Monday, the local .exchange handled
1,123 long distance calls compared
-with slightly over 800 a year agi
on the same day. He said the aver
age daily toll traffic is from 94'
to 1,000 calls.
The St. Joseph company had
growth last year of 27% compared
with 12% .in the state. The local
concern had the third highest
growth'rate in the State for lnd<
S-huchart said that the company
has on order an exchange for Mea
ico Beach. "This exchange will r
lieve the crowded conditions o
present lines and reduce the beach
rates to the same -as those in th
city." He said there will be no to
charge between Port St. Joe an
the Mexico Beach exchange.
