PORT ST. JOE, FLORIBA
Two fires this past Sunday ruin-
ed as many houses in the Port St.
The first fire occurred at 3:00
a.m. Sunday morning in the cold,
rain, sleet and snow, when the
home of iMr. and Mrs. H. -R. Wal-
ker of Oak Grov-, burned to the
ground. The Walkers were not at
home at the time of the fire and
as a consequence, the two-story
dwelling was 'beyond saving when
neighbors discovered the fire.
The Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department answered the alarm
and -bent their efforts to saving the
homes of L. W. Cox and Toby Wor-
ley which flanked the Walker home.
The Fire Department used their

TWO LICENSED PLUMBERS ON DUTY TO SERVE YOL
Christian Nurture Through Church
Aendence. . ...
By Rev. Boyd B. Underwood
The processes of growth and
learning begin at birth and they
continue throughout the life of an
individual in various degrees. As
parents we are anxious about Ithe
physical health of the infant and
ever solicitous about the well-being
and development of the liitte one.
Scripture speaks familiar words as
"Train up a child in the way he
should go: and when he is old, he
will not depart from it." The spir-
itual nurture of the immortal spir-
it of the child is vastly more impor-
tant than that of lie physical. The
body dies and is buried, but the soul
lives on for eternity.
The home and the church ha-,
joint responsibility in this spiritual
nurture for the child. The Christ
astonished the learned men in the
temple concerning his knowledge of
the truths of the Law and the Pro-
tphets. We should not be amazed
when our children develop in their
faculties when given the opporu:n-
ity of life's essential training. We
are embarrassed and chagrined
with what they pick up in know-
ledge along the way. To ,be sure,
they will receive the instructions
and precepts which we give them,
and they also get such other world-
ly information by association.
Therefore, it is important to be in
attendance upon *the more impor-
tant and necessary learning and
training periods in the House of
The family attending regularly
and participating in the Christian
education program of the 'church is
the hope of our nation and the
world. As the minds and hearts of
men and women, and .boys and
girls are nurtured on the eternal
Word of God, the integrity and
character of our nation will be more
The freedom to worship is still
the greatest freedom of our land.
This liberyt should not 'be made a
license to disregard' a sacred and

allow anything to conflict with the
regular appointed times of corpor-

The spiritual stamina of a corn-

protection of the only institution
that proclaims the Word of alva-

When you attend the worship of
God you challenge all that is evil,
all that is contrary to the Will of
God, and all that harms the peace

dutiful attendance upon thlie teach-

of March of Dimes-supported efforts to un!ock th'. mysteries of
their afflictions. They are, left to right, Gail Berg, 31/ years, arthritis
patient; Allen Markowitz, 5, polio victim; and Rosalie Porretto, 7,
born with a birth defect, all of New York City.
icans suffer from some form of
crippling arthritis. Many vic-
tims, grasping at straws, pay
out a total of more than $250,-
000,000 annually on quack
"cures." The fact is that the
causes of arthritis are largely
unknown. There is no known
cure, no known preventive. But
research to find the key is be-
ing rapidly advanced through
March of Dimes support.
To improve treatment and
rehabilitation of those crippled
by birth defects and arthritis,
a network of clinical study
centers is being established by
means of March of Dimes
funds. Techniques- developed
by The National Foundation in
aiding polio sufferers are ap-
plied to children suffering from
birth defects and arthritis.
All of this research and na-
tient care would be impossible
without health manpower-and
womanpower-to put it to use.
To help meet this drastic prob-
lem, March of Dimes funds
support a health scholarship
program in every state each
year. Thus the Marching Moth-
ers also seek support for an in-
crease in the critical supply of
doctors, nurses, physical ther-
apists and others dedicated to
the improvement and protec-
tion of the nation's health.

Time For New Rules
Recommendations for a way out of one of the worst messes
Washington programmers have ever blundered into have just been
made public in the draft report of the special Transportation Stu-
dy Group appointed in 1959 by the Senate Committee on Inter-
state and Foreign Commerce. t
Broadly, the report calls for a new look at the nation's
transportation facilities -- on the rails, on the highways, on the
waterways and in the air -- and their co-ordination (for the first
time) into an effective, economical transport team that would
stimulate the peacetime economy, serve the public's comfort and
convenience and be strong enough, versatile and flexible enough
to meet the unprecedented shocks and demands of atomic war.
After two years of study and investigation, the group comes
up with conclusive evidence that the railroads are the victims of
inequitable tax policies and of Government programs that have
expanded other modes of transport at the rails' expense, coddled
those least in demand with subsidies and ignored the injury to
the carrier most in demand. Strongly in favor of private owner-
ship, the report states that without substantial relief from these
handicaps the railroads will have to be taken over by the Gov-

How many times has this man
saved your life?
IKE most of us, when the kids are in the car,
L you get that "extra careful" feeling. You
know, that's the same way your friend-the
service station dealer-feels when you stop by
to see him.
Over the years, you've probably come to
take your service station dealer pretty much
for granted. But when your kids are riding
with you, aren't you glad you took his advice
and had your brakes checked? His sugges-
tions-small though they may seem to be-
may have saved your life more than once. His
interest in your safety is more than interest
in a customer-it's concern about a friend.
And what a valuable "extra" if your own

Babies develop along well es-
tablished patterns. For the first
weeks, a baby usually cannot see
S except to distinguish between
light and darkness. At about
three to six weeks baby begins
to fix his eyes on objects. Colors
are not distinguished until the
infant is about one year old.
The new-born baby cannot
hear for a few days until air en-
ters the tympanic cavity and
then sounds become audible. The
sense of smell is not present in
the newborn and develops grad-
ually. Taste is believed to be
present at birth, the new-born
being able to distinguish be-
tween bitter and sweet. Reflex
actions following touching of
eyelashes, lips, or hands, indicate
the sense of touch exists at
There are no demonstrable
mental processes working at

it the sixth month baby notes
ihe difference between his moth-
:r and other people. Sounds
made by the new-born are im-
pulsive and at about the second
month the contented sound of
cooing may begin. Most children
utter syllables at about the age
of eight or nine months and girls
usually talk earlier than boys.
The developmental process of
an infant is the awakening pe-

that normal development and

Panama City was he guest speak-'
er for the Rotary Club meeting
last Thursday at nocn. Dr. Morley
as he stated it, "w.ts making his
p'tch to get Gulf Coun.y to become
a participating county in the Jun-
ior College". His talk was directed
at explaining the advantages to
Gulf County parents and students
and explaining the broad curircu-
lum that Gulf Coast offers.
In speaking of Florida Junior
:Colleges as a whole, Morley stated
that several Southern states were
marveling at Florida's Junior Col-
lege set-up and many are beginning
to emulate the system.
In speaking of Gulf Coast particu-
larly, Morley stated that the school
had now been operation for four
years and has increased from 325
students to 1,339 at the beginning
of the present semester. In answer-
ing questions of accreditation, Mor-
ley said that no Junior College
could .become accredited until it
had 'been in operation for five years.
He said that the valuation teams
would begin their study of Gulf
Coast this summer in preparation
to becoming accredited next year.
With the participation of Gulf in
the Junior College operation in
Panama City, Morley said that Gulf
would te eligible for extension
courses. The classes could 'be
brought to the people. Morley con-
gratulatde the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany for making several scholar-
ships available to GCJC.
At present there are 14 students
from Gulf county now enrolled at
Gulf Coast. Morley contended that
this number would double or triple
if .bus transportation to and from
the college was available.
Morley declared that the college
was an asset to the pupils of the
area since its convenient location
draws a higher percentage of high
school students to higher education
that would go off to a university.
He declared that even the two
years the Junior College offers can
.be of value to young men and wom-
As to cost, Morley says that pre-
sently tuition at Gulf Coast is $65.00
a semester for Bay High students
and $80.00 for students from non-
participating counties. Morley said
that Gulf can 'become a member of
Gulf Coast for five percent of its
basic six mill school levy which
would amount to about $3,000 a
