Shut Down Friday
Lack of Orders
T. S. Coldewey, Vice President
of the St. Joe Paper Company, an-
nounces that the Mill will shut
down on Friday, March 18, for lack
of orders and to perform some
necessary maintenance 'and repairs.
It is estimated that the Mill will
be down until Monday, March 28,
at which time operations will be
resumed with an additional shift.
Approximately 100 men will be
employed to operate the fourth
shift. About half of this number
will be former employees previous-
ly laid off, who have recall rights
entitling them to reemployment
under Company policy. The Per-

According to Mr. Coldewey, the
first quarter of 1960 was a little
soft in paperboard demand; how-
ever, it is 'anticipated that the re-
mainder of the year will be strong
enough to permit the Company to
continue the normal 'four shift
schedule. A vacation period of two
weeks over the Fourth of July is
planned 'to be included in the nor-
mal operating schedule.
L rain Problems
Two drainage problems came to
the attention of the City Commis-
sion Tuesda night. Commissioner
R H. (Bp,!) Ellzey reported that
tie recent ratins had showed 'the
need for some drainage work be-
tween 9th and 10th Streets in the
Monument Avenue area. Ellzey said
the water was standing in yards
back of the Port .St. Joe Elemen-
tary School and that previous me-
thods of alleviating the situation
had proven ineffective. The Com-
mission instructed P. W. Petty to
inspect 'the situation and see what
could be done.
The other drainage problem pre-
sented by Ellzey was in the 10th
Street area of Westcott Circle. H6
said recent work around Knowles
avenue had created an area of
standing water. Petty was instruct-
ed to look into this matter.

p4 NNOUNCING*...TWO NEW-S IZE WAGON WONDERS!
<^ ^ rs =-<,.1 ^
America's station wagon specialists complete the world's largest wagon
family with TWO NEW-SIZE wagons. They're Falcons in size and
savings-and full-fledged Ford wagon wonders when it comes to
work! With 2 feet less car to manage, you're a genius at solving
traffic problems-a past master at parking.
Falcon Wagons are priced up to $154 less than other 6-passenger
compact wagons. The 2-door model is America's lowest-priced
Falcon gives the best gas mileage of any American-built wagon, on
regular fuel. You can go up to 30 miles on a gallon of gasoline!
You get other Falcon savings, too. Repairs cost less. Change oil only
once in 4,000 miles. And the Falcon's aluminized muffler normally
lasts twice as long as the ordinary kind.
Longest load floor in the compact field is yours in a Falcon. It's over
7 ft. long, with cargo space totaling more than 76 cubic feet!
Full-six-passenger room, too, because Falcon Wagons are built for
people. There's room for hats, hips and legs. Come see these newest
wonders from the Ford wagon world! FORD DIVISION, F'e &m/iafiy

What A Lifetime's Rxs Are Worth
At today's prices, the prescriptions needed by the
average person would cost about $750--during his
entire lifetime. A lot of money? It's less than a
third the cost of a car that has to be replaced every
few years. It's less than the cost of 2 or 3 vaca-
tions. Yet is buys a lifetime's worth of potent,
healthgiving drugs. That's why we say .
