Elementary P- A
Past presidents of the Elemen-
tary PTA were honored last Thurs-
day night at -the annual Founder's
Day program of the PTA.
Rev. C Byron Smith, pastor of
the First Baptist Church gave the
devotional in which he charged the
church, the school and the parents
with raising our children into re-
sponsible citizens. "It is-up t9 the
schools to provide the methods of
teaching the child to use his intelli-
gence. The church and parents
must supply the teaching of wis-
dom. Both are necessary for -the
making of a good citizen."
Mrs. Myrtice Chason entertained
the group with a solo and the Ele-
mentary Glee Club, under the di-
rection of Miss McIntosh presented
a musical program.
Jack Mahon, program chairman
for :the evening introduced the past
presidents of the organization and
introduced Superintendent of Pub-
lic Instruction, Thomas A. Owens
who introduced the speaker, Dr.
Clifford G Hale of Florida State
Dr. Hale presented a very inter-
esting talk comparing our school
system with those -of Europe and
Russia. He classed our schools as
a ladder in which a student goes
up in his education, step by step,
for as long as wants. In Europe,
each child receives the equivalent
of an elementary education and
then is channeled in the 'direction
he .seems best suited for by the
state. If he is below a certain scho-
lastic level he is dropped from for-
mal schooling and taught a trade.
In Russia the student is given a
goal of certain knowledge he should
obtain. Then his entire education
is based around teaching :him the
answers to certain questions he
,should know. "This is why Rus-
sian students fare so well as a re-
sult of their education", said Dr.
In this foreign educational idea

of teaching toward a certain goal,
a student receives no schooling oth-
er *than those pertaining to their
vocations. Thus they are well
taught in their subject, but they
do not have a well-rounded educa-
Dr. Hale said, "While I do not
admire the Russian or European
methods of education, I do admire
the Russians energy in supporting
their schools. Everything in their
schools is the best obtainable."
The Doctor said that if America
were -to ,put forth the energy to
our educational system exhibited
by Russia, "not a nation could
touch our finished product."
Sharit Off To
Collect His $3.00
Mayor J. L. Sharit left for
Washington, D. C, yesterday
morning for business reasons
While in Washington, the May-
or will try and collect on a $3.00
check he has carried from the
U. S. Treasury since April 13,
1925. The check was to pay the
Mayor for World War I adjusted
With tongue in cheek (we
think), Sharit said "the Govern-
ment is giving so much money
away and going so far in debt,
I thought I had better convert
this check to cash while they still
have the money."

In a special -meeting Tuesday
night, the City of Port St. Joe ap-
.proved liens against property in the
area of the Municipal Hospital for
paving ;purposes. The ;paving was
installed 'and the costs levied
on a pro-rata share against lots ad-
joining the paving.
Objections to the action were
heard from Williston Chason and
Ed Ramsey, both of whom own lots
in the area. Chason said that he
felt the charge should not be levied
because he had already a paveCd
road to his lots (20th St.). Ramsev

A recent headline in the Apala-
chicola Times, "Boys Will Be Boys,
What A Shame, Too". The story
was stating several acts of devil-
ment *boys in Apalachicola were
But we d-isagree with his head-
If it weren't for boys, who would
'throw apples down the commode
and keep the plumbers busy? Who
would punch holes in new chairs,
making repairs for the trim shop
or a new chair sale for the furni-
ture company? Who would play
with 'matches, burning a hole in
a mattress, their pants, or burn
the corner off the house, thus ro-
viding work for any number of re-
pairmen? Who would lose all your
hammers, -pliers, wrenches, saws,
etc.; and create a sale for these
-'items?. Who would tear down the
shrubbery and keep .the nursery in
business? Who would wear out a
-pair of pants a week and a pair of
shoes in a month?
We contend boys are necessary
for business. Do 'away with them
and their "natural" actions and you
would cut the country's economy in

60 Gulf Citizens
A total of 60 residents of Gulf
County volunteered 'and participat-
ed in answering a lengthy series of
questions, specially prepared to
search out factors which may even-
tually reveal specific causes for de-
velopment of cancer in human be-
ings- and preventative measures
This information was compiled
from questionnaires which were
used and distributed during .the
"Cancer Prevention Study" con-
In -the report released this week
by the Gulf County Unit of the
Florida Division of the American
Cancer Society, the study has been
conducted throughout Florida 'and
22 other states. Final results will
be tabulated and :summarized by
the National American Cancer So-
ciety in New York.
It was announced when the pro-
ject was first introduced last fall
that the plan of the 'study is to
learn as much as possible about
the exposures and habits of a very
large and diversified number of
people. These people will then be
recontacted each year for six years
to determine which of them 'may
have developed indications of can-
By this continuous study, and
the break down of information com-
piled from thousands of question-
naires, it is hoped that important
clues will be revealed as to possible
causes for cancer.
In commenting on the success of
the Cancer Prevention Study in
Gulf County, Mrs. Chauncey Costin,
Chairman of the 'Cancer Study
Committee said, "the 60 families
who so willingly volunteered their
time and effort in providing impor-
tant information are to be com-
mended for their part in the fight
against cancer. And in addition to
these volunteers, thanks and ap-
preciation is extended to Mrs. Joe

Introducii The Jaycees!
A look at the current issue of Look magazine will show us
just how much good the ordinary citizen can do for his town
should he be inclined to band together for the civic good. The
issue currently on the news stands has publicity about several
prize winning cities for civic improvements. One town needed
a complete overhaul so the citizens did it. Another needed incor-
poration, so the citizens again came to the front. An interesting
fact among all prize winners was that in most cases, the common
citizen was the driving force for the city being a prize winner.
Enter, the Jaycees.
Most of you have been reading for the past few weeks in the
columns of this newspaper about the formation of a Jaycee organi-
zation here in Port St. Joe. Just what is this organization? How
will it work hand in hand with other organizations in our city?
How will it be an asset to our city? These are the questions the
organizers face in their quest for members.
First, let us point out that the Jaycees are not competitors
or a junior version of the Chamber of Commerce as their name
implies. The name was given out of gratitude to a Chamber of
Commerce who helped establish the first Jaycee chapter. The
Jaycees, in a sense, finish up what the C of C begins. The Cham-
ber is primarily concerned with the promotion of the city or area
for industrial, business and population growth. The Jaycees are
wholly concerned with the improvement of what we have. A
band of young men, being good citizens by doing their part to
improve our town. Making it a "prize winner" if you please.
The Jaycees are also unique in that only young men between
the ages of 21 and 35 are eligible to join. These young men will
be banded together, carrying on perpetual projects for the better-
nent of the community. The organization will be eternally at
work on something. It is an organization of young men at work
-- young men of action. Out of this organization with its mem-
bership of young men and eternal work, will come the trained
leaders for our Chamber of Commerce, civic clubs, city, county
and state government. A source of training. Each member of
the organization will at one time or another carry the load of
leadership toward some goal or other. This will give him valu-
ible training for his roles of responsibility ahead.
You will be hearing a lot of this organization in time to
come. Some of the things they will attempt to do will probably
seem unimportant -- others will be extremely important. But,
remember, the organization will be the "boot training" for the
leaders of your area in the years to come, so give them your

"CORVAIR HANDLES BETTER, STEERS MORE EASILY, RESPONDS
MUCH MORE QUICKLY AND HOLDS THE OAD MORE SECURELY
THAN ANY STOCK FOUR-DOOR SEDAN EVER MADE IN THE U.S."
-Jim Whipple, Car Life
If you think we're enthusiastic about Corvair, leaf through the leading automotive, sports and science
magazines and see what the experts are saying. Then, by all means, drive one yourself.
"Corvair's steering is so light that at
parking speeds it feels power assisted; it
is so precise as to be absolutely without
play, and it is fast enough to allow
complete control over every situation."
Sports Cars Illustrated
"Steers like a feather and is extremely
quick. This is a beautifully designed
automobile, engineered by real pros...."
-Tom McCahill, Alechanix Illustrated
"Most surprising thing to me outside of
the excellent handling characteristics was
the feeling of roominess inside. I
didn't have the sensation of driving a
small car and the headruom was greater
in the Corvair than in some standard
size cars. ."
-L. H. Houck, Automotive News
"So far as shopping goes, the Corvair is
a housewife's dream. It's small and easily
maneuvered without any power steering,
and so easily parked it's a lot easier
to unload a cart full of groceries into a
front trunk at the supermarket than it
is into a rear one."
-Rosemary Francis, Popular Science
"I want to state as firmly as I can that
the Corvair handles as beautifully and is
as safe as-if not safer than-any family
car on the road today."
-Jim Whipple, Car Life
"There is none of the typical whine
normally associated with rear-engined
vehicles. Inside the car, the effect is quite
unlike anything we have ever experienced.
It almost seems that there is no engine,
and the general effect is so quiet as to be
-John R. Bond, Road & Track
"No written word can suffice for the.
genuine pleasure that you will receive
behind the wheel of America's newest
and most advanced contribution to trans-
portation. .. It is a great car."

Learns To Read
How does a teacher ,help a child
learn to attach -a sound to a given
letter combination? How does -a
child learn to see combinations of
letters in a word? The -starting
point is. a known word in which
there is 'a familiar element, or
more -often, several known words
containing a common element. The
child meets "hat" in his primer
story and exclaims, "The last part
of 'that word says 'at'." He has
trouble with "call" in his reading
and his ,teacher says, "You know
how that begins. It has the same
sound at 'the beginning at 'come'
and 'cat'." As -she does so, she
writes the -two words under each
other .so that he may see the com-
mon element clearly.
In the first grade the process of
comparing known words soon ex-
tends to other sound elements.
Initial sounds are a help 'early. The
children use "like", "laugh" and
"look" and note that these all be-
gin with "1". The teacher may en-
courage them to .say the words and
to listen for the beginning sound.
Then they may try to name some
words that begin with the same
sound and watch as the teacher
writes "late", "letter" and "last"
on the board. In the course of read-
ing a .story, someone reads "his"
for "this". Since he knows the
"is" ending from his acquaintance
with the 'small word "is", the teach-
,er takes the opportunity to help
him become acquainted with the
"th" beginning. She says, "Let's
'take another look at that one. It
might be "his", but it is a different
word. It begins like "them", "'that"
'and "'there". As she does so she
writes ;the words on the board.
"Let's say them." "How do they
begin?" "Now let's try "'this:"
What does it say?" This is an ap-
proach through phonetic analysis.
That is the child sees sound ele-
ments within the word-beginning

Representative Barren has ser-
ved in the Florida Legislature as
representative 'from Bay County for
the past four years. He distinguish-
ed himself through the record he
made in the Legislature.
In commenting on his candidacy, I
Barron had this to say: I originally
entered public life in the sincere
hope that I could make 'a contribu-
tion to 'honest, efficient, responsible
government. This I have tried to
do. I do not believe in extensive
platforms and campaign promises.
The people have been disappointed
too often in this respect. It is my
firm conviction that government
should be as close as possible to
the people and controlled by the
desires of the people. Government-
al offices must be conducted in
such a way as to gain the respect
of the people for the government.
I wish to make it clear that I am
heartily in favor of our present
system of free public .schools. I am
proud to say that we in the '57 and
'59 sessions of the Legislature were
able to adopt good, sound laws de-
signed to maintain our public school
system as it is, while other states
hastily enacted ill-founded laws
which resulted in the destruction
of the school system .which they
Representative Barron recently
received state-wide publicity when
he had an open fight in the news-
paper with Governor Collins in re-
gard to the opening of the Hatha-
way Bridge in Bay County. It was
generally agreed that the efforts
of Barron and other interested citi-
zens resulted in an early opening
of the bridge.

FROM GRAND OPENING-ITIS
Remodeling and Renovation Fever Subsides Normalcy Takes Over
female Anyway, it works, from all indications!
It was a real pleasure to have as our special
Grand Opening guest 0. Ralph Boyles (a mer-
chant, too) our brother from Mount Airy, N. C.
The evening before departing he treated our fam-
ily to a special seafood dinner at one of the
famous seafood places in this area. I awoke at
2:00 am, and Ralph was Just getting out of the
shower and rubbing his stomach vigorously.
"Looks like that second serving was Just too
much", he remarked. It wasi

are past and the 30 odd prize winners have been
announced. However, you'll still be able to ob-

A lady went into a store and asked, "May I
try on that dress in the window?" "Well", said

We feel the following small Incidents are
worthy of mention: Comments from Mrs. T. M.
Watts as she left hurriedly: "Mr. Boyles, I wish
you folks wouldn't be so sociable in this store-

this to say about a suit he bought at Boyles on
November 11, 1946 (Mr. C. had the suit on) "My
wife says this suit looks better on me than any
I've ever had." Over 13 years wear and still in
excellent condition. Can you beat that? The
