THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1960
by WEhLEY R. RAMSEY
We demand a measurement.
Other states are infringing on
a strictly Florida claim.
Maybe our demands are a bit
late to be effective, ,but we want
to register our complaints, never-
In the Cotton Bowl game New
Year-day, the University of Texas
made the claim that they had the
biggest bass drum in the world in
Everybody knows that the big-
gest bass drum in the world belongs
to the band of the University of
If this situation is allowed to go
on unchallenged, the next thing you
know, Texas will be claiming their
drum heads contain more gator
skins -than Florida's. Such a situa-
'lion could prove to be, embarrassing
to Florida prestige--and public re-
lations claims. Texas might even
come up with the idea they produce
more and bigger grapefruit and
oranges than Florida. Then where
would we be, if .they are allowed to
get away with it.
The Governor should, forthwith,
appoint a committee of measuring
experts to challenge the Texas
claim immediately, or pronto as
*the Texans would say.
Port St. Joe is .probably the re-
modelingest (if there is such a
word) little city around these parts
now. A walk up the main drag will
show no less than four remodeling
jobs under way right now-along
with the construction of a new
modern .business building.

Hannon has started smoking a pipe.
We would like to tell you how that
Somebody sent Frank a pipe for
Christmas. Although 'he didn't
smoke at -the time, he just couldn't
stand to see -that pipe go to waste
so he started smoking a pipe.
Don't -get near him though, be-
cause he smokes his own pipe mix-
ture, which is -potent.
We overheard Gannon Buzzett
conversing with Frank the other
day as to what he was putting in
his pipe to give it that "delicate
Of course, you will have to draw
your own conclusions about whe-
ther Frank was jesting or not, but
be replied that he had put in a lit-
tle of two or three kinds of tobac-
co and a few tea leaves. "Gives it
that brisk flavor", Frank said.
Gannon raised an eyebrok (his
right one) and asked, "Have you
tried adding a little coffee to your
mixture?" Frank perked up right
quick and said, "No, but I'm going.
to try that now that you mention
The reason we 'advised you not
to get too close to Frank and his
new pipe is that by now somebody
may have suggested that 'he mix a
little gunpowder with his tobacco.

R. H. "Bob" Ellzsey, Gulf County

Ellzey said that only $725.50 had
been received thus far and urged
everyone to send in their contribu-
tion just as soon as possible thi,

Sharit met with the Road Depart-
ment chairman -Monday to seek a
way of paving all of Port St. Joe's
streets 'through the County secon-
dary road fund money received an-
nually from the State. Grotegut
told the Mayor that there was no
provision in the law that would al-
low streets in Port St. Joe other
than those 'already designated, to
'be paved with these funds.
Roads already designated to be
paved with these funds are Garri-
son Avenue from First to 16th
Street; First Street from Garrison
Avenue to Highway 98; 16th Street
from Highway 98 to Garrison Ave-
nue; Long Avenue from Fifth Street
to First Street and from the High
School to Niles Road. These streets
are included in a three-quarter mil-
lion dollar bond issue currently be-
ing negotiated by the County Com-
mission against anticipated secon-
dary road fund money.
Other local streets set up hin un-
pledged secondary road funds by
the county: are 20th Street from
Long Avenue to Garrison; Fifth
Street from Highway 98 to St. Jo-
seph Bay 'and Eighth Street from
Woodward ^venue to Garrison Ave-
Sharit said that Grotegut told him
that it will be sometime in the fall
before any f the requested County
projects caff be started. This is be-
cause the county has already over-
spent on its secondary road fund
money and the ,pending bond issue
will not 'be approved or any more
unpledged money turned loose until
this deficit is caught up.
The Road Department chairman
told the Mayor that possibly in the
fall paving could be started on 'the
Port St. Joe street projects.
OTHER PAVING NEEDS
The Mayor pointed out the dire
need for resurfacing on most of
Port St. Joe's streets. He declared
that it would take around $400,000
to bring all -of the city streets up
to first class condition through re-
The Mayor said the City Commis-
sion is now concerned with finding
the best way to do this work, even
'to thinking of buying a spreader
and doing the work with city labor.
Sharit assured those present that
the Commission was going to ex-
plore all avenues for the best and
cheapest way to do 'the work. H'e
asked that the citizens -express
their opinions on the matter to the
Commissioners both for a way of
doing the paving and a means of
financing without a burden being
placed on anyone.

St. Joe High School will sponsor a

getting on the calf and he ran out
from under me. I fell on a hog and
he carried me for a ride across 'he

Wouldn't you like to be there?

that we went to bed. The next day
we went home.
Bill and I went down to the barn
and saw three squirrels. Then we-
went home and got two sacks and
went back to the barn. We put the
sacks over the holes and ran the
squirrels out and caught them. We
took them home and 'put them in

retirees than any other state in the
union and interest in Florida among
those who -are considering retire-
ment is tremendous.
I found so much interest in my
recent column reviewing Mike
Smith's excellent 'book entitled,
"Florida, A Way of Life" that I
felt readers would be equally in-
terested in more information along
"How to Retire to Florida" writ-
ten b yGeorge and Jane Dusenbury
is -one of 'the most complete and
comprehensive books of this charac-
ter I have ever read. 'My own long
personal knowledge of Florida and
countless contacts with people
from all walks of life who have re-
tired and now make their homes
here places me in a. position 'o
judge accuracy and truthfulness
and I can recommend this book to
anyone interested in Florida with
the view of retiring.
What should you believe about
new discoveries in the treatment
of illness? Not rumors, not hear-
say, not ill-founded "scientific"
articles that describe a marvelous
"cure" that may prove question-
able in the long run. When it

your family physician.

Florida Medical Association.
A person who is shot or
stabbed in the abdomen, but not
killed outright, has a prospect
for survival today that is shi
times as good as he would havi
had 40 years ago. Three times as
many persons so wounded art
now brought to surgery wherdis
the risk has been reduced to at
least one-third. Since World Wai
I, this improved outlook has re-
sulted from three factors: (1) an
increased use of blood transfu-
sion; (2) the development of
dried plasma as an emergency
blood substitute, and (3) the
advent of the blood bank. These
have made it possible to bring
to surgery an increasing propor-
tion of persons critically wound-
ed by abdominal penetrations
and to sustain them through
long and hazardous operations.
First-aid treatment of abdom.
inal penetrations such as gun-
shot and stab wounds consists
of easing pain, combating shock,
stopping hemorrhage by pack-
ing or pressure and getting the
patient to a place of definite
surgery as soon as possible.
Hemorrhage and peritonitis, one
or both, account mainly for the
death rate from penetrating
wounds of the abdomen. Hemr
orrhage usually begins immedi-
ately with the wounding, and
when there is' massive bleeding
the threat to life is serious.
Peritonitis, however, is an
after-effect of wounding, and
usually results from peritoneal
contamination from sources such
as leakage of intestinal content,
bile or urine. While escape of
contaminating material usually
begins at the moment of wound-
ing, time elapses before critical
infection becomes established.
Control of peritonitis has been
made easier through the use oi
antibiotics. The death rate in
cases of penetrating abdominal
wounds increases with each
hour's delay of surgical repair
and this is why prompt medical
treatment is essential.
