Hall decided that something
should be done to counteract all
this and give the city a new look
and a new appeal. Appealiung-to
Ad Club menzirs -,e- urged that
the 4,000 green' benches be re-
painted in varied colors, pink, blue,
yellow, red, in fact every color
of the rain'bdoW.:
The idea ciauht on. A Tampa
paint manufacturer offered ,to help
by supplying the paint free of
charge. Ad Club members volun-
teered to do the painting but be-
cause 4,000 benches are a lot of
benches they solicited the aid of
the St. feterslburg Jaycees and
any other group interested in giv-
ing the old town a new look..
"Why stop with -the benches?"
someone asked. "Why not inaugu-
rate a beautification program to go
with it?" It was suggested that
10,000 flowering trees, palms and
plants 'be set out. 'Citizens and
visitors were urged to ,buy a tree
or plant and donate it to the
cause. Again civic groups offered
to furnish -the labor and the pro-
gram began to roll.
More groups and individuals 'be-
came interested-and the project
snowbaled into a citywide effort.
Committees were formed -to carry
out different features of the pro-
ject. Maurice Nichols, a retired
engineer was selected as chairman
of the executive committee. -Com-
mittees include the Brain Trust,
the Task Force, -the Bench Warm-
ers and others.
A speakers -bureau was set up
to publicize the project and sell it
to the community. Speakers -are
available to give talks on the plan
'before any group that is interest-
ed. Citizens are urged to put on
their thinking caps and ,suggest
other things that might be done to

"Summertime and the livin' is easy" is a lyric from Gersh-

can be really easy when a modern gas refrigerator is used
to help prepare hot weather dining.
In the new RCA Whirlpool shown here, many foods can be
quick-chilled on the new Jet Cold Shelf, or kept frozen in the
generous zero-degree freezer compartment. The magic ice
maker 'automatically manufactures a ready supply of ice
crescents to garnish platters and for ice cold drinks.
The refrigerator can be put
to excellent use with this de-

etits and are continuing to work or
run a business must have their
earnings reported the same as ev-
,eryone else. Individuals drawing
retirement benefits have a right
to ask that their benefit amount
be refigured if they earn more
than $1200 a year in work covered
by Social Security.
Any person who is drawing re-
tirement benefits and who has
earned more than $1200 in a year,
since the retirement claim was
filed, should check -to determine if
the 'Social Security benefit amount
could be raised. The salaried per-
son should bring a copy of his 1960
W-2 Form (Statement from Em-
player), and the self-employed iper-
son should 'bring an oxact copy of
his 1960 self-employment tax re-
turn when requesting a recomputa-
tion of his benefit. The level of
-earnings after retirement age will,
of course, determine whether or
not the benefit .can be increoasEs,
however, the individual who contin-
ues to !earn the maximum amount,
$4800 per year, can definitely have
his benefit increased.
You must continue te pay Social
Security taxes, and you do have a
right to have your additional earn-
ings considered if the earnings
were more than $1200 per year. Al-
ways contact your nearest Social
Security Office for information on

BUCKET SEATS ALONE DO NOT A MONZA MAKE
S:X, Gee! Little did we know,
when we introduced the
Corvair Monza last year,
that we were starting a Big
Thing. We just thought it
would be pleasant if you
could buy a car that treats
I. you, the driver, like you
want to be treated. m The
H bucket seats, of course, are
.1h the most obvious evidence
of our desire to please you.
But they're not the most
J. important thing. No sir.
What's really vital is the way
-.X;a Monza handles-some-
thing nobody in the U.S. has
N, yet copied. Or can copy. Be-
cause Corvair is the only
S rear-engined car made in this
country, and you know what
g. that means: steering light aq
....... ................. .... thistledown. (You even park
this one more easily, it steers
-- so briskly.) Beautifully bal-
S.anced braking-the ear stays
.level even under panic brak-
ing, which we hope you'll
never have to do. Traction
... and more traction, so yqu
.... '- t : :. ~ ..... ~don't become a stick-in-the-
.. :mud. The kind of cornering

Revamped Pay Schedule Good for
County and County Commissioners
We believe one of the best things for Gulf County to
come out of the Legislature is the revamped pay schedule for
the County Commission.
The new law gives the commissioners a salary of $125.00.
The county is now authorized to pay the commissioners for
verified expenses incurred in their jobs. We think this is
good. The commissioners have a good deal of their time and
money tied up in their jobs, if they do them right.
We think the bill is good in this respect.
A good commissioner will be justly compensated for his
expense in doing his job. The county will be out only $125.00
a month for a commissioner who isn't doing his job properly.
The expense account payments will do more than words or
campaign speeches to tell just how active a county commis-
sioner has ,been in his job.
The commissioners pay schedule now calls for $100.00 a
month salary and $100.00 a month flat payment for expenses
that may be incurred in performing his duties.
A county commissioner who does his job right, will use
up his $100.00 a month expense money. A county commis-
sioner who only attends the meeting, gets around $33.33 an
hour for attending these meetings.
We are not saying that some of the county commission-
ers are not now performing their duties as they should. It
is gratifying to know that the expense involved will not keep
a commissioner from doing his duties in the future.
A Pity But True
The following editorial is reprinted from the Warrens-
burg, Missouri, Star-Journal:
"Americans are a prudent people. Look at the evidence:
Ina recent poll, 63 per cent of those questioned said the
President and Congress should do something about holding
down prices and preventing inflation.
'Americans are a good-hearted people. Look at the
evidence: In the same poll, 52 per cent of those who answered
- said they thought the powers that be ought to get busy and
provide more medical care for the aged.
"Americans are a generous people who like to see the
other fellow get a break. Look at the evidence: In the poll,
48 per cent said Congress and the Chief Executive should
boost the minimum wage to $1.25 per hour.
"Americans are people who also like to see themselves
get a break. Look at the evidence: The poll turned up 46
per cent who thought the government ought to 'reduce taxes
for people like myself.'
"A higher minimum wage-but no price rise and no in-
flation. More medical care for the aged, more federal aid to
education (said 40 per cent), more housing and slum clear-
ance (38 per cent), more spending on national defense (31
per cent) and to cut unemployment (28 per cent)-but still
'balance the budget by cutting government spending' (37
per cent) and, above all, 'reduce taxes for people like my-
"Yep, Americans are prudent, good-hearted and gener-
ous. But Americans, judging by that poll, also are a peo-
ple who need a fast lesson or two in arithmetic and the re-
lationship between cause and effect."
The "Isms" have been defined in this fashion: Social-
ism: If you have two cows, give one to your neighbor. Com-
munism: If you have two cows, the government takes the
cows and gives you some of the milk. Capitalism: If you
have two cows, you sell one and buy a bull.
Kings Ferry, N. Y., Tribune: "Gaze at this magnificent
structure, 'declares the government official, pointing at a
new housing project or bridge, or superhighway. 'Built en-
tirely with government funds,' he continues, the implication
clear that no mere private group could do anything quite
"But Where did the government get its funds to
build this 'magnificent structure'? Not from anything the
government produced or sold or some service it performed.
No, the government-federal, state or local-got its funds
from the people who earned wages and salaries or ran busi-
ness and paid their share of taxes ."
About three weeks ago the dailies over the nation carried
big stories stating, "the nation's economy is now spurting
ahead the recession is over". That week the paper mill
shut down for a week. Please, Mr. Kennedy, do no more
"spurting ahead" for a while .. we can't financially stand

Pyle Congratulated by

Otis Pyle, president of St. Joe Motor Co., Port St. Joe, today received
a personal congratulatory letter from Lee A. Iacocca, vice president of
Ford Motor Division general manager, commending Mr. Pyle and his em-
ployes for their part in setting a 36 year Ford sales record.
Ford car and truck sales during May were higher than any other May
since 1925 the heyday of the Model "T".
In his letter to Mr. Pyle, Mr. Iacocca said, "I would like to take this
opportunity to extend my personal congratulations to you and your em-
ployes for helping to make last month the best May Ford sales month in
"No &fince the record May of 1925 have Ford dealers sold as many
new cars and trucks during any May sales period an in the month just
past. We think this is a major accomplishment, one that reflects the
strength of the country's economy and the automobile business in particu-
In closing, Mr. lacocca ,stated, "We think the consistent Ford sales
gains since the first of the year, which you and your fellow dealers made
possible, have helped to encourage this consumer confidence, which has
led the country out of a business recession."
During May, St. Joe Motor Co. sold 16 cars and trucks, an increase
of 30per cent over April and 51 per cent greater than May of last year.
It was the dealership's highest monthly sales during 1961 and the highest
