St. Joe Monday about 12:10 a.m
approximately four and a half miles
south of Wewahitchka.
Officials gave this report of the
chain of events:

area as they contended ,they would

Mrs. Robert Merritt asked why
the City could' build the sewer sys-
tem now and they couldn't when
the homes were built. Sharit re-
plied that since that, time the City
has been able to purchase certain
equipment that makes them cap-
able of installing the sewer them-
selves at a savings of nearly' one
half. He declared that the sewer
could have .been put in when the
homes '"ere built, but it 'would
have- been necessary to hire a con-,
tractor to do the work. Financing
would have been borne by the pro-
perty owners at that time and the
cost would have been prohibitive
to the property owners.
The question was raised as -to
what the cost would be now and
what repayment arrangements
could be made by Braxton Ward.
Mayor Sharit replied that on the
basis of the last sewer installed by
the city, the cost would run ap-
proximately, $3.5.0 per lineal foc'-
for each property owner on the
street. This would make an instal-
lation for a 75 foot lot cost in the
neighborhood of $262.50. Sharit
said this could be paid over a per-
iod of ten years at a cost of around
$3.00 per month.
Mrs. Merritt asked why they had
to pay for their sewer service when
others were getting it free. Sharit
told the group that no sewer had
been installed since the original
,service was ,put in in 1937 without
the property owners paying for It.
He reported that all the sewer
work 'performed .by the city during
the past year-which has been con-
siderable-has all been paid for by
the property owners.
In the light of all the discussion
Braxton Ward urged the group to
not press for a decision now, but
that they think about the matter
until-the next meeting of the City
Baord which will be July 7. The
group agreed to this.
The City agreed -to hold the mat-
ter in abeyance until they could
hear further from the group.

He said ,he and two of his bro-

Musson were fishing in the mouth
of 'the canal when the sharks
began to bite. They tore up all
the tackle they used. Wayne saw
the shark break water. When he
saw the shark's size he came-
back to town to get something

The only thing that may be hard to
understand is how it can offer the
ride it does, along with so many
other luxury-car virtues, and still
compete in the low-price field.
We use the word compete only in
the sense of price. For with a ride
as special as Chevy's, real com-
petitors are hard to come by.
There's a world of difference be-
tween Chevrolet's coil springs at all
four wheels and the leaf springs
that most other cars still use. Take
a Chevy down a snaky back road
and you'll feel the difference in the
sure way it holds through curves
and shoots over rough spots with

Error of Bull Run?
Two years hence, in July of 1961, the first Battle of Bull
Run will be re-enacted as a part of the centennial observance of
the Civil War. To some that designation of the "late unpleasant-
ness" offensive. They prefer "War Between the Ctates", while f
many of our Yankee brethren still hold out for the "War of the
Yclepf one way or the other, that fight remains one from
which Johnny Reb always maintained that he merged victorious.
In the annals of military historians, however, the engagement was
a bit of a fiasco, whether you look at it through the eyes of a
Union sympathizer or those of a Southerner whose forebears put
the Yankee soldiers to flight.
It was difficult to determine who withdrew with more
precipitate haste, the men in Blue or the socialites .who brought
their chairs out from Washington for a grandstand view of the
The two years which remain before the debacle is restaged
is quite a wait. Likewise it has been a spell since the lads in
Gray drove their foe into retrograde. Nonetheless, the lessons
of Bull Run are as fresh in our minds today as the tactical and
strategic considerations which face us in working out a sound
Had the Confederate Army conducted a vigorous pursuit
that day over the rolling terrain south of Washington, it could
have gone right into the heart of the capital city. There is no
sin on the battlefield greater than the lack of aggressive action at
the critical moments, and judged by that standard, the South fal-
tered that day at Bull Run.
Are we Southerners repeating that error at Manassas, Va.,
again today in the fight against forced integration of our school
systems? The Florida Times-Union
"IF ONLY. ."
The aftermath of accidental death has always been a cho-
rus of: "If only.-..
If only- the gun hadn't been loaded ... we'd been home
when the fire started. when they got into the medicine cabi-
net found the scissors turned on the gas.
Most shocking to us today is the anguished cry: "If only
I'd known they'd gotten into those plastic cleaners'-bagsl". or:
"If only I hadn't given the baby that plastic bag to play with!"
The current number of deaths due to the attraction this
ultra-thin, shiny transparent material has for youngsters, especially
infants, and its property of clinging to little faces on inhalation,
has shocked the,nation. It has produced a hysteria that is re-
flected in a rash of proposed legislation at community, state and
even Federal levels.
That something should, and must be done about such a
menace is obvious. But we do not think laws or ordinances or
other publicly-administered controls .can ever prevent, or even
minimize the 'tragedies inherent in the-playful, heedless, and to
a large degree, helpless years of early youth. Under such an ap-
proach to the problem, our ancestors would have had to legislate
against cutlery and shears. The perils of the coal oil lamp would
have precluded its use, gas and electricity would be unheard of.
- Nor could we have had the protection of germicides, or even
On careful reflection, most of us will agree with the US
Public Health Service and the National Safety Council that this
sort of responsibility must remain with parents and cannot Jbe
assumed or met by regulation.
I "We believe," says the National Safety Council, "the prob-
lem of child deaths from polyethelene film is primarily an educa-
tional problem, not legislative." And to assist in meeting this
challenge, the Society of the Plastics Industry and its members,
who include the producers of plastic film, have already printed
and distributed millions of illustrated, easy-to-understand warning
leaflets. Assisting in the preparation of such, material as well as
in its distribution are the American Academy of Pediatrics, The
American Academy of General Practice, The National Institute
of Dry cleaning as well as the aforementioned US Public Health
Service and National Safety Council.
The composite advice is: Don't let your children play with
these bags. Don't leave them where children can get them. Des-
troy them as soon as they' have served their initial, intended and
useful purpose. Don't try to "use" them for something else. Im-
plicit, also, is the plea that parents make every effort to know
what their children are doing.
If only they would
