After each of '&he tour candles were

we'll relax and. wander through the
remaining part of .this column. A
querrelous customer examined a
cowhide jacket and demanded:
'"Are you sure this te good mater-
la?" "Of course", replied the salea-
person. "It held the cow ,together".
And- speaking of cows my another
writes from N. C. "Dad4 and I keep
quite busy with a fresh cow and, a
pig thst needs killing." Now, many
of you ,probably have never heard
of a cow getting fresh and a (pig
so naughty (or fat) that it needs
killing. That's "Down on the farm"
talk, and, broeher, it really says
something when interpreted. My
parents, age 85 and 92 married i '
1898 and have lived in the same
dear old, spot for 62 years. It's a
real privilege and joy to have them
hale, 'hearty and happy at this ripe
and mellow age.

Christmas dinner there with 265 or
30 present, including children,
grand and' great grandchildren; in-

the fresh cow and the naughty pig
will make a tasty and wholesome
contribution! This is getting too
long for busy Christmas shoppers
and we'll stop abruptly. May christ-

LOTS OF TOYS FOR GIRLS AND BOYS!
Because they ride easier they last longer, too. They take better care of
payloads and they make a long day's work a lot more pleasant for the
driver. All that-primarily because of Independent Front Suspension
(I.F.S.). If you think it's stretching a point to attribute that many advan-
tages to a suspension system, you haven't driven a new Chevy with
I.F.S. Take the wheel and feel its road-leveling ride, its almost total
absence of shimmy and wheel fight, its ease of steering even in the
big rigs. Spend hours behind the wheel and you're not nearly as tired.
You're not and neither is the truck. That independent suspension soaks
up the worst shock and vibration-the kind that can'twist sheet metal
and loosen joints and increase your maintenance costs. That's why
Chevy trucks keep on working and saving for extra thousands of miles.

Bryant Makes A Fine Choice
The Star would like to add its voice of congratulations to
.James McNeill for his appointment to the State Turnpike Author-
ity by Governor-elect Farris Bryant. Notwithstanding our bias,
we think that the Governor-elect made a good choice for this
group of men when he picked McNeill for the job.
We here in Port St. Joe know of Jimmy's qualifications, his
moral standards and his honesty. In light of these qualities of
the selectee, we find it refreshing to know that an honest man can
be picked for a governmental office. It s iour opinion that there
are more honest men in government than there are dishonest men.
All we ever hear about,, it seems, are the dishonest ones.
Jimmy is well-kn6wn: in this area for his good sound think-
'ing, 'his interest in sound, clean growth for the area and his inter-
est in the State of, Florida.
The selection of McNeill also is a flower in the lapel of
Northwest Florida and Gulf County. McNeill is the first man
from Northwest Florida on this board. We know that he will do
his section of the state proud in his representation. Certainly his ac-
tions should let South Florida know during the next four years
that Northwest'Florida has some men in its borders capable of
doing a good honest job something the taxpayers earnestly
A Definite Need At Christmas-time
We regret that this idea is so late in coming, but we feel
that even at this late date something 'can- be done for this great
need in our city. Most of you know that the Moose Lodge has
disbanded in Port St. Joe. They are no more. Along with their
demise, it can 1e expected that their annual project of providing
Christmas baskets of food for poor people (and sizeable baskets
they were) will also vanish from the scene
While the.'source of this annual Christmas bonanza has
vanished, our poor are still ;ith us, We feel there will be sev-
eral families in Gulf County and Port St. Joe who will go wanting
this Christmas because of the end -Of this organization.
'Here is a ready-made project for some- civic club. This is
a project that will do many people good.' But, it is a project that
requires work much work.
We think it would be to the credit of any club or organiza-
tion to undertake this project. Several groups are repairing toys
for the unfortunate children, notably the American Legion and
the men of the First Baptist Church. While we are thankful for
these efforts, we would like to point out that toys are a poor sub-
stitute for an empty stomach. We don't wish to imply that these
people should abandon their toy activities. They are truly needed.
:We would like to see some organization assume the responsibility,
of seeing that no family is hungry in Gulf County on Christmas

fee. Most of the organizations or attempts to do anything in
Port St. Joe has failed, in our opinion, because the proponents
have not put enough money into their particular project. We
are told that it takes money to do everything. And having a bunch
of growing children has taught us that it takes a lot of money to
do anything adequate.
The Star lifts its voice in appreciation and praise for these
men who are creating something worthwhile for Port St. Joe and
the entire area. We include the entire area because already citi-
zens from Apalachicola and Wewahitchka are becoming interested
in the project-interested enough to put their time and money
into it. We have found that when a person will put more than
a token tip into anything-even-,church-he will work for his
interest, protecting his money, its investment, and the life of the
organization to which he is contributing financial aid.
A country club will be a tremendous help to the Port St.

Work and Money Adds to Success
After several unsuccessful attempts, Port St. Joe is finally
to get a golf course and country club. This information was made
public last week in The Star by an announcement from the Cape
San Blas Country Club, Inc., a corporation of local people, inter-
ested in playing golf.
We feel that their success came about because of three
things. One, they had some excellent leadership. The five men
who began the work on the project, John Drew, Lawrence Bis-
sett, Ashley Costin, Ben Dickens and Jimmy McNeill are known
to be "completers" of any project they start. Second, the organ-
izers enlisted the aid of -some good help (the Jaycees) in doing
the physical work in their project. They spent their energies on
the creation of their project and not blowing their horns. Third,
the Club is asking a reasonable, though. adequate membership

Notice that the sleek lines of the body
are closer than ever to track width.
We've trimmed side overhang. Every
inch and ounce of this '61 Pontiac'
travels with steadier footing.
The change is also noticeable inside.
We've increased seat height and allowed
more headroom, legroom and footroom.
Clearance between steering wheel and
seat is 12 per cent more than before.
Doors are wider, swing open farther.
More balanced in motion. More com-
fortable inside. That's the Wide-Track
way to travel. And there's only one
place to try it... in a '61 Pontiac! Take
a deciding drive soon.
