"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
by WSt.LEY R. RAMSEY
It makes us extremely glad to
see that someone in a-.position to
do something about it is now con-
oiuned with the over-population of
That person is Farris Bryant. He
expressed these sentiments Tues-
day afternoon here in Port St. Joe
at the city- hall.
If some thought isn't given to
this problem, we will do- away with
our attractions both for tourists
and permanent residents.
What attracts tourists, permagn-
ent residents and industry to Flor-
ida in the first .place?
The answerto that one is easy.
Our beaches, hunting, fishing and
living room. -
Growing population is now be-
ginning to crowd our fishing
streams, flow over Into our hunt-
ing area and crowd our, beaches.
It isn't being selfish when we
worry about the disappearance
of these things. it is the fading
away of our main attractions.
Why do industries move to Flor-
For the same reason as the tour-
ists and residents. A pleasant -place
for their employees to live in.
And again subdivisions are plow-
ing up orange groves every day.
We want growth, but let's not
go overboard on the matter. We
want a little of "Florida" left in
the state.to enjoy. '

opinion that integration and the resultant has-
sle would, destroy our public school system.
' Some of the whites will just quit going to pub-
lic schools, refusing to pay the high taxes to sup-
port schools they are not using, lower the stan-
dards of teachers because of those refusing to
teach in integrated schools and generally under-
mine, through hostile feelings, the entire school
system of the state of Florida."
"Preserve Our Attractions"
Bryant expressed concern over the crowded
conditions that are beginning to be evident in
the StatetR sporting areas of streams, hunting
areas and beach facilities. "We must preserve
these facilities to maintain our attraction to va-
cationers, industry and permanent residents", he
said. "We still have time to enact effective legis-
lation along these lines".
Good Labor Movement Essential
Bryant said that he was "pro-labor" but-was
"anti Hoffa labor". He declared that labor had
a serious job to do in Florida to preserve good
working conditions, living wages and harmonious
relationships between labor and management.
He declared that Florida had the finest labor
setup of any state in the nation. He urged labor
to keep it so by keeping out such undesirables as
the Hoffa epe.'
Bryant declared that labor's main job is not
now the mere bargaining practices -of working
for better wages, betteFworking conditions, etc.
He declared that labor's' main job is training
men how'to use the free itme they now have.
Bryant told hpw, the free time of the working
man had reached the point .of becoming an as-
set or a liability to him, and what with the
possibility ofha four day working week in the
future some thought should be given now to-
ward teaching men how to use free time.
Bryant emphasized that he was not now a
candidate for the office of Governor but left no
doubt in the minds of those gathered that he
was strongly considering the idea.

,pools, radios, appliances and other
conrforts of life including tne bath
.tub, than all other countries put
togethere. "To what do wt owe
tbese things"? Bryant asked, "How
did we get them?"
Bryant expressed the. belief that
the'reason for the power that had
provided these things. was the be-
lief in America that "man is creat-
ed in the image of God."
Unlike most countries, man in
the United States is considered a
precious being. We put more value-
upon a human life than any other
nation. Bryant said there were only
two kinds of power, the power of'
force and the power 'of love--the-
latter of which is what makes the
U. S. great. -.
,"Russia is a .good, example of
the force of power", said the' speak-
er. "Men in free nations live by
the law while men in dictator na-
'tions live according to the whim-
of the man in power at present.".
"The law of force is nothing new,"
said the speaker. He used as ex-
amples the governments of the an-
cient Romans where the .emperor
declared himself god so that he
could do what he wanted, because
of the belief of the people that a
God could do as he pleased. As a
result, 'the Roman emperors prac-
tically owned the every breath of
the people by their instinctive wor-
ship of a god-the emperor. And
of course this isn't ancient prac-
tices altogether. The speaker offer-
ed -the example of the god-emperor
"Every man, since 'time began,
has worshipped something", said
the speaker, f'and our power lies
in the fact that we worship the
one true_ God".

By STEVE WHEALTON
The local Babe Ruth all-stars
went to Eglin Field, last Tuesday
to participate in the district tour-
nament held 'there each year. The
team which was chosen to play St.
Joe was the local Eglin team.
The game was delayed by a 15

Panama City and Tallahassee all-
stars, which Tallahassee won, 1-0.
Jim Wilder was on the mound
for the Port St. Joe team and Wick-
ersham drew starting pitching du-
ties for Eglin. The game was a see-
saw affair, which saw two triples
by Eglin, and an inside-the-park
home run,, also by Eglin. Thehitt-
ingg star for Port St. Joe was Rod-
ney Spaulding& who chipped in with
'Port St Joe led during the. major
part of the contest, but Eglin's su-
perior -ittting finally proved to be'
the deciding, factor as the final
score was, Eglin '6, Port .St. Joe 4.
Wednesday, the local season be-
gan after the layoff for the all-
stars. The Gulfs were scheduled to
meet the Landcos. The Gulf team
couldn't find nine of their players,.
so the contest was forfeited.

By his own- admission, Greiner
was not wearing glasses. He pre-

H. 0. Pridgeon, who stays in

the bridge will be completed come
two more months. And he's still
predicting 'the dam will be com-
pleted. before the year is out.
Incidentally, at the seven-foot
water level prevailing, clearance
from water level to bridge stringer
is about five feet. That means most
boats with any kind pf hull or su-
perstructure will no longer be able
to pass under the strucutre. Ba-
teaus can make it with no strain..
Water level at the completion of
the dam will be maintained at a
6.5-foot level, or approximately at
the level the water's now running.
The dam will be located about
15 feet south of the bridge.

You've got more to go on than our say-so:
Every motor magazine has given Chevy's
standard passenger car and Corvette V8's
unstinted praise. SPORTS CARS ILLUS-
TRATED says it this way: ". surely
the most wonderfully responsive engine
available today at any price." And if you
want the thrift of a six, you still -et the
best of it in a Chevy.
BEST ECONOMY Nodoubt about this:"
a pair of Chevy sixes with Powerglide
came in first and second in their class in
this year's Mobilgas Economy Run-get-
ting the best mileage of any full-size car,
22.38 miles Dper gallon.
BEST BRAKES Not 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 NASCAR*-conducted test of repeated
stops from highway speeds.
"National Association for Stock Car Advancement and
BEST RIDE A few minutes behind the
wheel will -leave no doubt about this.
MOTOR TREND magazine sums it up
this way: ". the smoothest, most quiet,
softest riding car in its price class."
BEST TRADE-IN Check the figures in
any N.A.D.A.* Guide Book. You'll find that
Chevy used car prices last year averaged
up to $128 higher than comparable models
of the "other two."
*National Automobile Dealers Association
BEST ROOM Official dimensions re-
ported to the Automobile Manufacturers
Association make it clear. Chevy's front
seat hip room, for example, is up to 5.9
inches wider than comparable cars.
BEST STYLE It's the only car of the
leading low-priced 3 that's unmistakably
modern in every line. "In its price class," .
says POPULAR SCIENCE magazine, "a
new high in daring styling."

Modern Post Office
Shown To Rotary
Ray Smith, postmaster of Pan-
ama City presented the program
to the Port St. Joe Rotary Club
last Thursday at noon. Smith' pre-
sented a film produced by the post
office department made in the most
modern post office in the nation,
Washington, D. C.
The movie dealt with the theme
of the post office department mov-
ing out of the antique age to the
mechanized -age. Smith said that
some of the machines for handling
mail will be used in most of the
post offices in the nation in the
next few years.
The new machines for handling
mail used electronics extLesively
to read addresses, sort mail and
handle parcels and bags of mail.
In a short address, Smith praised
postmaster general Arthur Sum-
merfield for his work in the postal
service. He said that Summerfield
has inaugurated the practice of hir-
ing people for key positions in the
department who have vast exper-
ience in -their field, such as trans-
portation, routing, cost, etc.
This practice has resulted in the
streamlining and the cutting of cost
in handling mail.
Smith said that there are now
56 billion pieces of mail handled
annually by the post office depart-
ment with this total rising every
Smith said that studies are now
being made to provide over night
mail service to any part of the
United States. He also said that
studies were presently being made
to improve mail connections in the
Port St. Joe area.
Guests of the club were Fred
Stanford and Dr. Henry Langston
