Tuesday night's meeting brought
out the reason for the plans for
sewer installation iii the first place.
It seems two or three persons have
lots in this block and desire to
build homes there. They have been
refused septic tank permits after
the other six residents have been
granted theirs. The City, having
purchased considerable heavy equip-
ment since the original residents
built (who all applied for sewer at
the time) decided that they could
now supply sewer to this area and
meet the needs of the new residents
and also felt that the original six
residents would also want the sew-
er .services. But they didn't.
At Tuesday night's meeting, City
Attorney Cecil G. Costin proposed
to find out why the State Board of
Health had denied the latest re-
quests for septic tank permits in
the area and proposed to the resi-
dents present at the meeting to
have the head of the State Health
Department to come and inspect
the area to see if it may be ade-
quately served by septic tanks.
Costin pointed out that the investi-
gation will 'either point out that
those desiring septic tank permits
should receive them or that the
present septic tanks are dangerous
in which case the present residents
will want to obtain 'city sewer ser-
vices.
Those residents present agreed


71 people signed in. Games such as
checkers, cards, ping-pong were en-
joyed including billiards and danc-

The STAC House is now under
the new direction of Mr. and Mrs.

chaperone for the night.
Next week tournament games
will be played between people wrho

A feature of the evening will be

dren. The case of two small children drowning in the Intracoastal
Canal about two years ago comes quickly to mind. The boat was
overloaded, and children were the victims.
Reading the boating accident statistics for the holidays
shows that most- of the victims were children -- children in
overloaded boats that didn't have a chance to overcome their
elder's .decisions to take. "just one more".
Saturday, we saw such an overcrowded boat on the Chi-
pola River. The Chipola is swift and certainly no place for a
child to be tossed into the water to fend for himself. This boat
was loaded from one end to the other with children and adults.
All were having a fine time fishing, but the sides of the boat were
dangerously low in the water.
We kill children in ice boxes and the unwritten law is
passed to take the latches off all old refrigerators. A few children
die in plastic bags and action comes forth quickly in educating
the public to keep the bags away from children. But what are
we going to do about overloaded boats which claim more chil-
dren's lives annually than all the refrigerators and plastic bags put
together. SEE US
Of course the landing operators could refuse to rent a boat FOR .
which he knows will be dangerously overcrowded. But how will Consolidation loans
you get all operators to voluntarily abide by this? We believe that
you can't. In our opinion the answer lies in the Game and Fresh Improvement Loans
Water Fish Commission. This Commission licenses all landing Loans for replacing
boats. In our opinion, it would be a simple matter to stamp on
the boat license the maximum number of passengers that each Loans for buying a
boat could safely carry. Should penalties for violating the pro- Loans for building
posed boat limits be as stiff as they are for catching too many
fish, or shooting game out of season, some of the boat overloading M T

And of course, there are boats at landings that-are not fit onum REALTOR
for even one person to go out in-yet they carry a permit tag. 40 onm
A little more diligence toward requiring landing operators to meet
standards in quality boats would also be adventageous.

PORT ST. JOE,
GETTING PRETTY THICK FLORIDA

In Washington, July second was quite a day--for the rITITFM'l 1


Russians.
While Frol Kozlov, the Kremlin's number three enigma
smiled and sparkled at the press, taunting' them with honeyed
words of peace, his projection of the "workers' paradise" a few
years hence and the threat of "meeting force with force" at
Berlin considerably sooner--even the Pentagon burned! A five-
alarm fire raged, still out of control, among classified and secret
data in a restricted area of the world's greatest (and largest) de-
fense complex.
The elaborate luncheon for the dapper, alternately smiling
and pouting Russian was a joint operation of the National Press
Club (which entertained Kozlov's superior Mikoyan in its own
quarters) and the Overseas Writers, held in one of' the largest
Washington ballrooms--and carefully planned, although Kozlev
upset the question period rules at the last minute by insisting he
must screen all questions and select those he would answer. The
Pentagon fire, of course, was quite unplanned but impressive, no
doubt, to our. guest.
When he returns to Moscow after two weeks here, Frol
Kozlov-whom Khushchev is said to have named as his suc-
cessor--will have much to recount. As matters stand now, the
President of the US rushed to New York with a plane load of dis-
tinguished guests for a preview of the Soviet Fair that Frol (pre-
sumably) came here to open--with the assistance of Vice Presi-
dent Nixon.
On his arrival in Washington, the deceptively genial-look-
ing Russian was greeted by the Vice President and the Secretary
of State, visited again with the President at the White House, was
hosted by the Vice President at a dazzling reception at Blair
House, official guest house of the nation.

Thus, the attentions already showered on Frol Kozlov
should have Anastas Mikoyan turning slightly green. And if, in
addition to his American triumphs, he has been tapped by Krush
over Mikoyan's head, perhaps he'd better just say nothing when
he.. gets home--and get himself a new foodtaster.

This action has certainly 'been

their part. They were' "all for

you and I were able to see that

Of course not! What we are

"I'll tie up the whole country -

We must realize that this bill,
in its present state, caters to
the whims of labor bosses -
and their "coming out against

"sweeteners" they demanded -

A clever bit of strategy -

Let's not allow these men to

Carey added. You should check on

Honey-Pecan Biscuits
-- -,.7 .., -
.4


You would never think of starting a long auto trip without filling the
gas tank. Yet, in effect, that's what many people do, when they set off
for work in the morning without eating breakfast.
To work all morning long at reasonable efficiency, you need a reserve
of energy, energy that comes from eating breakfast. Fruit or juice, cereal,
eggs or meat, bread, and beverage prove adequate for most people. .
Hot bread always makes breakfast more tempting. Here's a recipe for
easy-to-mix Honey-Pecan Biscuits. Self-rising flour, with baking powder
and salt already included, is a big time-saver in this recipe. Try it once,
and you will always use self-rising flour for making those hot breads your
family dotes on. Enriched with three B-vitamins and food iron, it also
gives a nutrition dividend.
HONEY-PECAN BISCUITS
1/4 cup brown sugar 3 cups sifted enriched -
2 tablespoons butter or self-rising flour
margarine, melted 2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey V cup salad oil
1/2 cup pecan halves 1 cup milk
Combine sugar, butter or margarine and honey. Place honey mixture into
well-greased muffin cups, allowing about 1 teaspoonful for each cup. Place
pecans in honey mixture. Sift together flour and cinnamon. Add salad oil
and milk, stirring to make a soft dough. Fill prepared muffin cups about
5/ full. Bake in hot oven (450F.) about 15 minutes. When finished baking.
remove from pans immediately. Makes about 12 medium-size biscuits.

Take a tip from the experts ... in
Oteir own words and from on-
the-record facts and figures: More
than ever, Chevrolet gives you more
than any other of the leading low-
priced three! More room to relax in,
for instance. A sampling of official
dimensions reported to A.M.A.*
makes this clear. Chevy front seat
hip room, for one thing, is up to
5.9 inches wider than comparable
cars. And Chevy even offers more
front seat head room than all but
one of the high-priced cars!
Best Brakes Nlot only bigger,
but built with bonded linings for up
to 66% longer life. Just to prove
what's what, Chevy out-stopped
both of the "other two" in a


NASCARt-conducted test of re- able to tell this yourself instantly,
peated stops from highway speeds, once you take the wheel.


Best Style It's the only car of
the leading low-priced 8 that's un-
"mistakably modern in every line.
"In its price class," says POPULAR
SCIENCE magazine,, "a new high
in daring styling."
Best Engine Every motor mag-
azine has given Chevrolet's stand-
ard and Corvette V8's unstinted
praise. As SPORTS CARS ILLUS-
TRATED puts it: ". surely' the
most wonderfully responsive engine
available today at any price."
Best Ride MOTOR TREND
magazine calls Chevy ". the
smoothest, most quiet, softest rid-
ing car in its price class." You'll be


Best Economy No doubt about
this: two Chevrolet 6's won their
class in the famous Mobilgas Econ-
omy Run, got the best mileage of
any full-size car, 22.38 miles per
gallon--with Powerglide.
Best Trade-In Check in any

$128 higher than comparable mod-

CHRONIC ILLNESS:
A SERIOUS PROBLEM
The word chronic is derived from
the Greek word chronos, which
means time. A chronic disease in
medicine is'an illness of long dura-
tion. An acute illness as opposed
to a chronic disease-is one from
which the patient either dies or re-
covers completely within a limited
.time.
Some typical chronic diseases and
conditions are arthritis and rheuma-
tism, blindness, cancer, heart and
circulatory diseases, cerebral palsy,
diabetes, epilepsy, impaired hearing,
mental illness, multiple sclerosis,
po" a. I tuberculosis.
ac chroniclel.' ill pe'-on usually,
is di. led, at ast to -ome degree,
altho gn many can [ c about and
even be self-suppor'ing. There are
an estimated 25 million persons in
the United States suffering from
some form of chronic illness.. Of
this number, some one and a half
million are invalids, incapable of
getting .about. With the rapid in-
crease in the number of older per-
sons and the greater incidence of
chronic illness in later years, the
number of chronically ill will un-
doubtedly increase.
In addition to older persons, chil-
dren and young adults are also sub.
iqct to chronic illnesses. Rheumatic
*fever, heart disease, arthritis, tuber-
culosis and polio are among the
types of chronic diseases suffered
by young persons.
Chronic illness presents many
problems. Health authorities state
that the two major aspects are pre-
vention of the disease and care ani
rehabilitation of those who are ill
or disabled. As medical science -is
keeping people alive for long-r
periods, the attendant problems such
as chronic illness must be met and
overcome.

TIN CAN TEST FOR GREENER LAWNS


If your lawn showvs brown or
yellowish patches, try this tin
can test used by entomologists.
It's an easy way to find out if
the chinch bug, a small insect
with a sharp, slender beak, is
in your lawn. Chinch bugs suck
life-giving juices right out of
grass blades, giving lawns a
"burnt out" appearance.
Take a large tin can and cut
out both ends. Then push one
end of this cylinder an inch or
two into the ground at the mar-
gin of a damaged patch. Do
this in a sunny spot where you
are most likely to find the bug.
While the cylinder is in the
ground, fill it with water. If the
bugs are present, they'll float
to the surface of the Ivater in
just a few minutes.
You may have to look care-
fully. Chinch bugs are much

inch long, and it's black. Th3
wings are folded over the bacx
and have white areas. Baby
chinch bugs or nymphs are red-
dish in color and have a white
band across the back. Nymphs
as well as adults damage the
lawn and are most active dur-1
ing- warm weather.
If you find the chinch bug in
your lawn, several state exper-I
iment stations recommend at*
application of diazinon. Use 1-4
fluid ounces of a 25% emu.si.
viable solution in 25gallons otj
water. This is enough to trea[
1,000 square feet of lawn. It'a
best to thoroughly wet dow:
