Name Left Off Citizens'
Federal Officer Roster
It has been brought to our atten-
tion that in a story recently listing
the newly appointed officers for the
Citizens Federal Savings and Loan
Association, that one of 'the officers
was unintentionally committed.
The name left out of the officer
list was that of Mrs. Nora Beasley,
who is Assistant Secretary-Treas-
urer of the Association.
About 25 persons attended a special meeting of the Port St.
Joe City Commission Tuesday night to discuss rezoning the west
side of Monument Avenue from Fifth Street to Tenth Street and
the west side of Baltzell Avenue from First to-Fifth Street as in-
dustrial area; the east side of Monument Avenue from Sixth to
Tenth Street as business district and both sides of Fifth Street,
140 feet back from tie street right of way line from Lang Avenue
to Knowles Avenue to business district. All these areas are now
designated as residential areas..
Of those present, there were
aboqt as many opposing the change
of zoning status for Monument
Avenue, as there -were people for
the change. No objection was rats-
d concerning the change of zoning
for Fifth Street.
Mrs. Ruth Soule was the first to
raise her objection. She stated that
she didn't think the change should
go as far as Tenth Street.
Cecil G. Costin, Sr., expressed his
beliefs that he felt there were suf-
ficient vacant lots in the city for
these purposes now. "The time, may
come to. expand, -but I feel that the
time is not now." He pointed out
that the most .desirable business
property in town was along Fifth
Street, all available for building.
Otto Anderson took the floor ex-
pressing the same sentiments as
COLDEWEY ASKS CHANGE
Tom Coldewey then took the
floor stating that he was the one
who made the request for the
change in zoning.
Coldewey stated that the present
zoning ordinance was drawn up in
1937 when Port St. Joe was little
more than a.r small village. He said

industrial status for that area re-

outlet to the harbor "within the
City limits". Coldewey urged the
Commission to make further long
range zoning plans so that -new

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Highway Patrol said this week one
menace on heavily trafficked high-
ways is the "poke along" driver.
These self-appointed ;pace setters
cause many tin-and-steel hangings
along the thoroughfares of Florida
where speed has caused a high per-
centage of the deaths.
Commander H. N. Kirkman said
that a discussion of "slow ,poke"
drivers doesn't by any means rec-
commend speeding, but he pointed
out that people who drive "25 in a
65 mile zone" are doing a lot of
contributing 'to Florida's high acci-
Kirkman said the "poke along"
driver, who causes wrecks and gen-
'ral upheaval in traffic, is the man
who gets in the left lane of a four
'ane road 'and breezes merrily along
at 25 or 3.0 miles an hour without
getting back into the right lane of
traffic so others, who want to move
along at lawful speeds, can pass if
"The left lane of a four lane high-
way is FOR PASSING and not for
slow 'poking along observing the
scenery," declared the veteran pa-
rol commander. The same applies

Scouting's Effect On World Peace
After reviewing the record of the Boy Scouts of America,
here at the end of their first half century, we think it's somehow
comforting to find over 33,000,000 men and boys have pledged
themselves to a creed of patriotism, reverence and helpfulness.
If this creed were not international, then possibly the effect
on the minds and morals of the world's young men would not be
so outstanding, but the Scout Oath and Law are more or less
world-wide in meaning and this gives all boys an opportunity to
be uniform in their agreement on such basic tenets as "how to
treat your neighbor," "helpfulness", and "respect for others' be-
Furthermore, every four years the Scouts hold an event called
a world jamboree which takes place in some part of the world, the
place to be decided upon by the International Bureau of Scout-
ing. There, Scouts representing 67 free nations, live together,
sharing first-hand knowledge of each country's habits, customs,
ard modes of living. It's significant to note, that neither Rus-
sia nor any other dictator-controlled country has ever allowed
Scouting to flourish and w e suspect that one of the reasons is
their inability to stand up under a boy-level comparison such as
This year the Port St Joe Troop 47 is sending every boy that
expressed a desire to go to this World Jamboree at the time of
registration for this event. Boys who have gone to previous
World Jamborees profited greatly by the trip and the experience.
The local Scouts, on the most part are earning their own way to
the Jamboree, which furthers the Scout purpose of training a boy
to fend for himself.
In any event, this is the 50th anniversary of Scouting in
America and we are pleased to offer our hearty congratulations
to the boys and leaders who have made this movement a signifi-
cant power in the world.
Truly Scouting is an organization that builds boys into the
I st of men.
Freedom !s Everybody's Job
Few members of Congress are present to hear the prayers
with which the daily sessions of both the House of Representa-
tives and the Senate are opened observes Editor Glenn Martz in
'The Lowdown on Farm Affairs from Washington", nor do these
supplications often appear in print.
But Mr. Martz thinks every member should have heard -
and paid heed -- to a recent invocation of the Senate Chaplain,
the Rev. Frederick Brown Harris, who said, (in part):
"Give us to know with a solemnity that awes our spirits that
if a nation values anything more than freedom under God, it will
lose its freedom: and that if it is comfort or luxuries, security or
money that it values more, in the long run it will also lose them.
So in this day of contending values, gird us at any sacrifice to
incarnate and exemplify the faith we proclaim and to be ever
loyal to the deathless principles for which even the stars in their
Editor Martz is urging every Congressman to read these
words twice -- in case they don't sink in the first time.
In Government, business and private everyday living we have
become too lax in preserving the things for which this country
has been founded on. Corruption is everywhere and will take us
straight down the road to destruction unless the policy of treat-
ing our neighbor as ourself is not reinstated in our living habits.

SMr. Carey pointed out that many
people retire early in the year and
are now coming to the social secur-
ity office to file claims for benefits.
These claims can be completed
'much faster when needed proofs are
presented at the time of filing. A
telephone call to the office before
retirement may save a great deal
of time by insuring that all evi-
dence will be produced promptly.
Generally, a claimant for month-
ly benefits must .establish his age.
This may be done with some record
that is old and reliable. Also, evi-
dence of the claimant's earnings for
1959 is necessary. A copy of Form
W-2, Withholding Statement, for
1959 is acceptable if the income
was earned as an employee. The

It is doubtful if any public offi-
cial in this state ever received a
greater or more deserved tribute
than was accorded the Hon. Ray E.
Green in the form of a testimonial
dinner staged at the Clearwater mu-
nicipal auditorium recently.
The event, sponsored by the De..
mocrats and Democratic organiza-
tions of Pinellas County, attracted
business, civic and political lead.

Heading the long list of dignmtar
ies who came to pay tribute to
Comptroller Green were Governor
LeRoy Collins, Secretary of State
R. A. Gray, State Treasurer Edvin
Larson and Attorney General Dick
Ervin. Cabinet members Nathan
Mayo, Commissioner of Agricultare
and Thomas D. Bailey, State Super
intendent of Public Instruction,
while not able to attend were rep-
,resented by Governor Collins.
Other state officials in attend-
ance were State Hotel Commis-

James Vocelle, State Industrial
Commissioner; Al Rogero, Stta3
Road Board member. Former Cun-
gressman Courtney Campbell and
Chief Justice of the Florida Su-
preme Court, Justice Glenn Terre'l
were also in attendance.
John Rowe, Clearwater attorney,
was master of ceremonies, and
speaker of the evening was Sta*e
Senator Henry S. Baynard.
Governor Collina expressed hi"
pleasure at the privilege of shar-
ing with Ray Green such a happy
occasion and he termed Green "as
dedicated and capable a public ser-
vant as it is possible to find."
Reviewing Green's service to his
community and his state, Senator
Baynard traced Ray's political re-
cord which began when he was
elected mayor of Clearwater, where
he served two terms, followed by
his appointment to the office of
Clerk of the Circuit .Court in Pin-
ellas County and subsequent re-
election to that office three consec-
In 1949 Green moved to Tallahas-
see to become Assistant State
Comptroller and upon the resigna-

appointed to the cabinet office.

Baynard said. "Legislators lean on
him for financial advice. He has

The '60 Chevrolet models most people

than last year's models. This two-

things that put pleasure into owning
a car. (Just look at the list!) It's the
greatest year yet to get into a Chevy!
Softer, more silent ride with coil
springs at all four wheels and new
butyl rubber-cushioned body mounts.
Big brakes for quicker, surer stops.
Rivetless bonded linings mean they
last longer, too.
More room to relax in. Chevy sedans
offer roomier seating than any car in
their class. Lower, narrower trans-

Only full wraparound windshield
among the leading low-priced cars.
Electric windshield wipers keep sweep-

1,874,027 PEOPLE DID NOT DIE
Fifteen years ago, before the wonder drugs were
discovered, death claimed 10.8 out of every 1,000
people in the U.S. But today, the death rate is
down to 9.2 per 1.000 people -- the lowest in his-
tory. This means that 1,874,027 people DID NOT
DIE in the past 15 years -- thanks to the antibi-
otics, the hormones, and the other miracle prescrip-
tions which are now available. That's why we say:
