ADD UP MERCURY'S EXTRA VALUES: Just stopinat
our showroom and see the proof firsthand. Open the front
door of a Mercury-it's up to 5 inches wider than other
low-price cars so you can get in and out that much easier.
Slide into the front seat. Notice how the instrument panel
has been moved far forward. What other car gives you this
feeling of spaciousness? Now accept our invitation to go on
a private demonstration. Notice the steady, silent smooth-
ness of the ride. That's because Mercury has a 7-to-8-inch
longer wheelbase than other low-price cars-is up to 494
pounds heavier, and has far more sound-proofing all-
Try the brakes. They're up to 26% larger in a Mercury.
Notice the view. Mercury's windshield and windows give
you up to 21% greater visibility than other low-price cars.

pany policy because the film
was not produced by their own

as a "fourth network"-an as-

By virtue of this unique
hook-up and the 'tremendous in-

Judging by the initial re-

have seen this film it will have
the backing of public spirited
groups all over the country.
General Holgar N/ Toftoy,

BURNS: WHAT TO DO
Danger lurks in every home,
waiting to strike when we least
expect. If you question this
statement, ask your family doc-
tor or an insurance company and
they will tell you that even in
the best managed homes acci-
dents can and do happen.
One of the greatest dangers in
the home is the chance of being
Burns are serious and require
prompt attention. No matter
how much you know about
treating burns, always call your
doctor of medicine in case of a
In recent wars, physicians
have learned a great deal about
treating burns. These new meth-
ods gained aboard ships and on
the battlefield are now being
used by doctors to decrease the
danger of infection in burns and
thus cut down on scars and per-
manent injury. New plastic sur-
gery techniques and methods of
skin grafting can be used to re-
store normal appearance to per-
sons who formerly would be
doomed to carry scars the rest
of their lives.
Shock and infection are the
chief dangers from burns and
any treatment given before the
doctor arrives should do no
more than relieve pain, prevent
infection and treat shock. Keep
the victim lying down and pro-
tected from exposure and cold
and have him drink water or
fruit juice to counteract the de-
hydrating effect produced by the
burn. Do not touch the burn,
but cover it with sterile gauze, a
freshly laundered dish towel or
sheet. Avoid using 'boric acid or
absorbent cotton on the burn.
The cotton will stick and cause
additional injury when it is re-
moved. The large blisters caused
by the burn should be opened
only by a doctor.

And as paper ballots had to be used anyway to get the
voting done, the officials had to stay up all night anyway, count-

We believe it would be a step forward for the County
Commissioners to forget about the voting machines, and go back
to the paper ballot system in which as many voters as wish can

The Voice of Experience
So you think you want voting machines in Gulf County. i
Walton County was convinced that it wanted the machines too,
but the following editorial in the DeFuniak Herald would lead
us to believe that they are ready to throw them out of the win-
dew. Read the experiences of a county that has the machines g
and then. draw your own conclusions.
LET'S SCRAP THE VOTING MACHINES!
The embarrassing spectacle of voting in Walton County
in Tuesday's primary, with several hundreds of voters forced to
stand in line up to three and four hours and with probably hun-
dreds of voters over the county giving up the struggle and leaving
the long lines, was due primarily to the voting machines used in
the larger precincts, and the best way to do something about the
situation, is to throw out the voting machines and go back to
This will not be a backward step -- voting will be expedit-
ed and helped in several ways. Names were awkwardly placed
on the voting machine ballots, and several voters complained
that the division of names in two columns confused them; names
at the bottom of the ballot were very hard to read and voters had
to get down in an awkward position to see these names.
In precincts in the county where voting machines were
used it was necessary to supplement them with paper ballots in
order to make it possible for hundreds to vote at all.- At Free-
port, a defect in one machine was noted as soon as it was opened
for voting and it was not used; only 106 voters were able to vote
on the other machine during the entire day.
At the courthouse precinct, hundreds of voters stood in line
for hours until about 3:00 o'clock in the afternoon paper ballots
were put into use.
The voting machines were entirely unable to handle the
load, and while it is true the ballot was an unusually long one, it
is entirely possible that ballots in future elections could be even

Floridians own 1,923,000 passen-

state's population at 2.5 persons
per car. Only three 'states have a
higher proportion of cars in rela-

average is a little over three peo-
ple per car, the Florida State Chainm-
ber of Commerce said 'this week.
Ten years ago, Floridiams rode
3.8 per car, on the average, com-
pared with a national figure of 4.1
persons. 'Since that time Florida
passenger cars have increased 176
per cent in number while popula-

body pointed out.
Other types of motor vehicles
with Florida licenses have gained
at even a faster rate than automo-
biles. Light trailers, numbering
136,804 by the .end of 1959, are
more .by 248 per cent than in 1949.
Heavy trailers, now 36,309, are up-

WHAT IS SPRING FEVER?
Spring fever is a condition,
not truly medical in nature, that
affects everyone. While fever
usually denotes a high tempera-
ture, this characteristic is not
common .to those with spring
fever. It takes on many forms
and symptoms ranging from a
desire to be active to the wish
of "just sitting."
With the arrival of warmer
weather, the out-door type vic-:
tim of spring fever turns his
thoughts to polishing golf clubs,'
testing the rod and reel, spading
in the back yard or planning
various sorts, of recreational pas-
times. The quiet type yearns to
sit and think, read, and other-
wise occupy himself with the
least physical activity.
One characteristic common to
all sufferers of spring fever is
the wish for a vacation the
time to depart from all routines
which form a part of daily liv-
ing, both social and business.
Today's additional stress and
strain create added tension in
the tired person.
Temporary freedom from the
hurry and bustle of crowds,
from the problems encountered
in coping with business, and
from pettiness often exhibited
unwittingly by friends and asso-
ciates will do much to instill a
new spirit in a tired adult. The
same is true of a youngster who
is relieved from the regular and
e disciplinary measures necessary
in the class room. 4
Plan your playtime to give
you the most enjoyment, but re-
member that over-indulgence in
anything may do more harm
than good. Late hours, fitting
too much into a short time, and
excessive exercise san result in
pain and fatigue.
3 Enjoy your "spring fever", no
matter what form it takes, pro-
vided a physical checkup assures
you that you are in good condi-
Stion, mentally and physically.
SLet your playtime away from
routine activities provide the
d zest and revitalization you need.,

GONE AND DONE!
The same Corvair that tallied a thumping 27.03
miles per gallon* in the Mobilgas Economy
Run ... went right on to climb Pikes Peak
earlier in the spring than any car
has ever tried!
We wanted to show you what the fabulous traction
of Corvair's rear-engine design and the sure-
footedness of four-wheel independent suspension
really mean. So the identical Economy Run car
went right on to 14,110-foot Pikes Peak-and right
up to the top of that savage mountain, on April 15,
still deep in winter's snow and ice. No other car-
even specially equipped-had ever been able to
conquer that nightmare alpine road so early in
the spring. But Corvair (with United States Auto
Club officials aboard to certify that not one nut
or bolt was changed) purred right to the summit
without chains or even snow tires! That just
underscores the fact that Corvair is totally unique.
But you'll find that out the first five minutes
you're at the wheel!

A YOUNG ADULT'S BEST FRIEND
As these young people get started
out in life, they will find that a bank
is the best answer to their financial
problems in solving college and
business problems. It is to the credit
to the graduate to begin his adult life
by dealing through the bank for all
his financial needs. A bank will of-
fer him proof of payment of bills
through a protected deposit plan. A
bank will meet the young man's fi-
nancial crisis with the least strain to
him. A bank is truly the young per-
son's friend. This bank wants to be
a friend to the young adults of this
city. Begin your financial life with
us for safety and courtesy.
