Florida is no exception.
"The danger of speed in miles
per hour is not nearly. so easy for
the average person to understand
as it is when we reduce it to the
distance in feet that an auto can
travel before a driver could do
something it faced with danger,"
declared Comdr. H. N. Kirkman of
the Florida Highway Patrol.
In simple terms, the patrol gave
"When your speedometer reads
60 miles per hour, you are treading
oa thin ice. Did you ever wonder
how fast you are really going in
relations to reaching a potential
accident just ahead of you?
"Well, figure it this way. Take
the speedometer reading, half it
and then add the figures together.
'Or, add 60 to 30 and you get 90.
That Is thq total number of feet
'that you are traveling per SEC-
OND at 60 'miles per.hour.
"So, if it 'took five seconds-not
minutes mind you, for you to reach
the decision to hit the brakes .and
get your car stopped you would

We Can Make Our Own Success
While most of the ground covered by the Chamber of
Commerce speaker Monday night was very familiar and were
points heard many times oyer:in regard to industrialgrowth'
both in our own area aid$ throughout the state, one poiitk
brought out by the speaker, struck home with us *and made
an impression; a point that hasn't been stressed.to any length;'
before, and one that makes sense When we think of it for a
while. The speaker, a meniber of the industrial developiient
branch of the Florida Development Conmmission :told the
-Chamber of Commerce members that "industry goes to ci-
ties that cooperate with one'another". That is, indus-
try and growth goes to cities where the people cooperate
with one a.nother.. Where an atmosphere of -gad 'will and
concern, for the.-growth and improvement of every family
and their benefits, is of prine concern to everyone.
It is naturally understood that .a community must co-
operate, as a community, with a prospective industrial citi-
zen in order to gain favor in his eyes. And favor must be
gained for 'such. a citizen to move into our area. 'But this
idea of the business, houses and people of'a community co-
operating with EACH "OTHER is a new one to us, and we
must confess, we like the idea, .
It serves to ritake :Us suspicion that it is our bickering
among- ourselves anid our lack of. loyalty to the people and
services of our own city, that has caused. our growth to be
.as slow as it has, in. the face of the tremendous assets we
possess for growth. 'For years; we have put the blame at the
feet of large land-owners of the area, refusing to sell or;pro-
vide industrial property.' But could it just be, that it is our
attitudes? To: make a. point here, -we might say that an in-
'dustrial park has been provided for any manufacturers to
locate on both sides of the Gulf County Canal for its entire
length. The land is available, but still our growth has slow-
ed to a virtual standstill.
Let's examine ourselves personally. When you have a
purchase to make do you check local merchants first, or do
you immediately surmise that the goods are not available
locally and head out of town to buy? Do you make purchas-
es out 6f-town to save a few dollars. far less dollars than
the trip to another town will cost you? We have seen people
go out of Port' St. Joe to' purchase articles that were "cheap-
er than they are here", when :the entire purchase was less
than the cost of the trip out of town.
The business and services that the citizens of Port St.
Joe send out of town would make our city half again as
large as it is now. and make our city a thriving, bustling,
progressive city that would attract more growth and im-
provements. Nothing attracts success like success, and in
this instance we can make our own.
Let's take stock of-ourselves and see if:we can't make
our city a better place to live by being more loyal to our
own town. "This goes for the biggest as well as the littlest
customer in our city. It isn't just a job for me or you alone.

Best Seller For 350 Years
King James I of fngland 'has been dead more than three
centuries but the translation of the Bible that, he commis-
sioned continues to-be-the best-selling book of .all time and
to make its impact felt on the life, culture and institutions
of the English-speaking: world.
There are newer translations, writes Don Wharton in
the December Reader's Digest, but the 350-year-old King
James Bible remains "The Greatest Bible of Them All". Some
books sell a million 'copies; a'few ten millions. But only one
book has had sales measured in the hundreds of millions.
That is the King James Version.
Lord Macaulay said that if everything else in our lan-
guage should perish, the King James Bible "would alone suf-
fice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power". H. L.
Mencken, a critic not noted for religiousness, called it "prob-
ably the most beautiful piece of writing in all the literature
of the world."
It'cost King James not a farthing of his own money,
but as the Digest article reveals, won for him a place in his-
tory. It was perhaps the most successful example of group
journalism on record. Fifty-four scholars working in six
panels did the job in four years and the first edition appear-
ed in 1611.
In the final stage one man; Miles Smith, son of a Here-
ford butcher, put his stamp upon the whole at Oxford. He
favored short English words and wrote the preface with the
poetic rhythm of the Bible itself.
Phrases hammered out by Miles Smith and his fellow
translators have been used as titles for over 1900 novels
and plays-from Kipling's "The Valley of the Shadow" to
such Broadway hits as "The Little Foxes" and "The Voice
of the Turtle". For a current example, another Digest article
only a few pages away is titled "His Brother's Keeper".
Better than they knew, perhaps, King James' wise men
wrote in John 1, 14: "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt
