lution to Gulf County Representa-
tive Cecil G. Costin, Jr., Tuesday
night at their regular meeting
favoring a division of and a stip-
ulation for the spending of the
County's Secondary Road Fund
monies. The ;Resolution backed
the bill provided it would offer

The bill, Introduced to the Legis-
lature by Costin calls for the allo-
cating of 80% of the seventh cent
of the State gasoline tax for use
of paving construction within the
corporate limits of municipalities
in Gulf County. The Gulf County
Commission offered a resolution
Tuesday morning opposing the bill.
All of the Secondary Road Funds
are now spent at the discretion of
the County Commission.
Costin also has offered a compan-
ion bill allowing the application of
the funds in question to streets in
a 'municipality or subdivision. At
present, the funds can -be spent on-
ly. on roads connecting main high-
ways, feeder roads to main high-
ways or farm to market roads.

The Jaycees offered another re-
solution to Costin advocating the
naming of the railroad overpass
near the St. Joe Paper Company
mill after J. L. Sharit. The resolu-
tion called for the naming of the
overpass after Sharit because he

ment and progress for the County
of Gulf and City of\ Port St. Joe,

pass was -brought into reality."

(and that's the car more people are buying!)
The wish-I-had-a-Chevy season's here! Summer's in sight.
Horizons are brightening. Vacation plans are percolating.
It's the most rewarding time of the year to stop by and
talk buy with your Chevrolet dealer. I And why not do
more than just talk? Take a Jet-smooth Chevy out on the
road. That wonderfully gentle ride you'll feel is what we're
so proud of (Full Coil suspension and a chassisful of other
road tamerni are responsible). Inspect the advantages of
the finely built Body by Fisher (none can match it in
C'h.. .....i.'s field). Look over the full selection of models
and compare the prices (18 Six and V3 Jet-smooth Chevies
are priced below comparable competitive models*). 0 So
now you know why more people are buying Chevies than
any other make. Just one other thing-check the sweet
trade-in allowance your Chevrolet dealer can offer you
now. See how easy it is to blossom out in a new Chevrolet?

Belin Tells of Civil
With the Centennial celebration
of the Civil War now in progress,
Jake Belin talked to the Rotary
Club last Thursday about one of his
favorite characters in the Civil
War, one Judah Benjamin.
Benjamin had a great deal of
power in the South during the War
serving as Secretary of War, Attor-
ney General and Secretary of State
at different periods during the con-
flict. At the beginning of the war
when Benjamin was Attorney Gen-
eral, he advised President Jeffer-
son Davis to ship all the available
cotton in the South to England and
France to trade for arms before the
Federal closed in the South with
a .blockade. Davis failed to do so
and the South was ultimatley block-
aded so that no goods could be
sent in or out.
Politics played its part .in the
South, too, as she girded to fight
a war. Generals Johnson and Beau-
regard were recognized by military
men as the South's ablest generals.
Davis didn't like Johnson so he
shipped him West where fighting
was negligible. Davis was jealous
of the popularity of Beauregard
and feared he might be selected
president, so he send Beauregard
to New Orleans, where fighting
was also negligible.
Lee was then put in charge of the
Southern army. Lee was unpopular
with Benjamin because Benjamin
thought that Lee was too zealous
for the safety of Virginia and didn't
pay enough attention to the safety
of other Southern states.
Benjamin served with Davis all
though the war and manipulated
the South's meagre supply of cur-
rency and supplies to stretch them
as far as he could.
Following the War, Benjamin
went to England and became a Bar-
rister where he wrote many of the

neighbors cared for neighbors in
the yellow fever epidemic. "Neigh-
bors even buried neighbors", he
said. "A neighbor is one who helps
in time of need without thought of
reciprocation" Cartledge went on
to say that people thought that
neighbors weren't needed now with
many of the srevices formerly per-
formed by neighbors now perform-
ed 'by professional men.
Cartledge declared that neighbors
were needed more than ever today
especially in things spiritual. "How
often have you asked your neigh-
bor to join you in worship? How
often 'have you inquired about your
neighbor's relationship to God?
,These are more important needs
than bain raising, caring for the
sick, even more important than
burying otir neighbor's dead", he
said. "Now, more than ever, our
neighbor-and we too-need spirit-
ual guidance, and it is up to neigh-
bors tc provide the guidance". I
Guests of the club from the Key
Club were Chesley Feusom and
From the P. 0.
"Air 'mail envelopes should never
,be used unless the sender desires
air mail service. While the use of
air mail envelopes for first-class
surface mail is fortunately not
widespread, usage is frequent
enough to merit special attention."
So says Postmaster Chauncey Cos-
The colorful red 'and blue border-

If this restriction is not observed
there is potential trouble and em-
