Heart Fund Drive
Starts Today In
Many individuals and organiza-
tions have volunteered their ser-
vices in an effort to combat the
number one killer in the United
States. A house to house canvass
of the area will start on February
21. The campaign will extend thru
the early part of next week until
all citizens have been contacted.
In addition to personal contacts
at the homes, there will be road
blocks set up on Saturday, Febru-
ary 23. It is the desire of the Gulf
County Heart Association that all
citizens contribute generously in
order that the heart drive will be
an overwhelming success.

ever before and how a minimum
goal of $1,100,000 must be raised
to expand the Society's year-round
programs of public and professional

Kynes also pointed out that more
Society volunteers will be needed
during the coming year to arouse
greater public interest and aware-
ness of cancer. This vicious disease,
he said, is still annually taking the
lives of more than 8200 Floridians.
For this reason, he concluded, ev-

Key Cancer Volunteer Workers Will
Meet In Tallahassee For Planning
Dr. Hale G. Smith, head of the
Department of Anthropology and
Archaeology of Florida State Un-
iversity informed Jesse V. Stone
this week that articles found by
an exploratory group of students
and headed by Smith a month
ago, had definitely turned up
old Spanish ruins.
Dr. Smith suspected that the
items were Spanish dating back
to the 1650-1700 era. He confirm-
ed his suspicions to Stone by let-
ter late last week after a thor-
ough study of the articles found
by his party.
Dr. Smith stated that he would
like to return with his group of
students from June 10 to Au-
gust 7 to make further excava-
tions in the area. It would be
necessary for pay to be provided
the students for meals and lodg-
ing during such a prolonged stay
on the site, according to Smith.
In a short meeting Tuesday night,
the City Commission took up only
one item-but it was an item of
importance to the voters of Port

meetings to change and lengthen
the period at which prospective vot-
ers in city elections could register
to vote and for those wishing to
cast an absentee ballot to secure
their ballots and cast their votes.
As the City ordinance now stands
there are only 15 days in which
ballots may be printed, absentee
ballots secured and voted and re
turned to the City Hall.
But absentee ballots must be In
the City Hall five days prior to
election under the present law.
This leaves only 10 days to have
ballots printed and votes cast Since
qualifying periods usually end on
Saturday, this leaves only an av-
erage of five days to cast absen-
tee ballots after the ballots can be
Of course, ballots cannot be
printed until the candidate qualify-
ing deadline has been reached.
On the newly introduced ordin-
ance, candidates now must qualify
by 20 days prior to election. With
a five day deadline for receiving
absentee ballots, this gives a 15
day period in which absentee bal-
lots may be cast.
Registration of Voters
Registration of voters under the
present ordinance has also given
the City Commission some worries
and they are trying to change this
ordinance to better comply with
the convenience of the people.
At present, the registration books
now open 30 days prior to a muni-
cipal election and are open for 20
days for people to register.
The new ordinance, introduced
Tuesday night requires the books
to be opened for registration 40
days prior to a municipal election
and remain open for 30 days.
The new ordinance calls for the
second primary election, when no
candidate receives a majority in
the first primary. The second pri-
mary is to be held two weeks after
the first primary.
The ordinance also calls for elec-
tion polls to be open from 7:00
a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The ordinance was introduced by
Commissioner Tom S. Coldewey.

you have to get down on the bum's
level, because that's the only way
he will understand you", she said.

Port St. Joe, Florida
Quite recently my office has been
besieged with mail from the Port
St. Joe area relative to the acqui-
sition of certain lands on the St.
Joseph Peninsula for public park
purposes. I should like to take this
means of answering all of the good
people of your area since it is
well night impossible for me to
give each of them an individual re-
Soon after I took office I re-
viewed the campaign pledges which
I had made to the people of Flor-
ida. One of the most important
items was the matter of conserva-
tion and public recreation. In or-
der to get this important phase of
our State Government in its pro-
per perspective. I appointed a
Committee on Recreational Devel-
opment which consisted of the
heads of all State Agencies having
to do with conservation and recre-
ation. The primary function of this
committee was to recommend to
me what we, as Floridians, should
do in that area both now and in
the future. This committee has
been hard at work and submitted
to me an interim report which sug-
gested that the committee be au-
thorized to proceed with a compre-
hensive plan for the entire state. I
have recently received a draft of
the committee's report and it is
most revealing. Indications are that
unless we proceed immediately
with a beach acquisition program
that our residents and tourists alike
are going to have difficulty in the
near future in enjoying one of the
things which has made our state
such a wonderful place to live. I
don't look on this subject as a "do-
gooder" matter but rather as a
public necessity if we are to main.
tain our status as a tourist state.
Thus, I think that you can well un-
derstand that your many ,requests
for acquisition of St. Joseph Penin-
sula for public purposes did not
fall on deaf ears here in Tallahas-
Since the lands in question are
Federally-owned, I wrote our good
friend, Congresman Bob Sikes, on
January 28, 1963, and requested his
assistance. Subsequently, Congress-
man Sikes held a conference in

Hot Soup For Box Lunches
Lunch box carriers come in all ages. They travel to schools,
to factories, to offices. In 40% of all homes someone carries
a lunch at least every other weekday. 20% of those are carried
by youngsters (up to 13). 11% by teenagers, 15% by women,
and 54% by men. To keep all these folks happy, to keep lunch
high in nutritional standards, many homemakers depend on
hot soup from a vacuum bottle. Regardless of varied food
likes, there's a kind of canned condensed soup to fit all tastes,
and it provides the hot element so necessary to good meal
Vegetable beef, beef noodle or beef soup make meals richer
In protein. If lunch is low in vegetables, one of the vegetable-
rich soups may be added. Soups prepared with milk improve
In nutritional value, help increase milk intake for children or
adults. Soup and sandwiches have been hailed as America's
favorite lunch. This team makes a well balanced meal, and
an easy one to tote for lunch. The soup and sandwich meal
stands complete with a dessert of cookies, cake or fruit.

Hardly a cigarette was smoked
last Thursday by Rotarians as they
watched a film pointing out the
dangers to smokers from cancer.
The film pointed out that one
out of 20 people receiving surgical
treatment for cancer of the lung
will be alive five years after the
treatment. Too frequently the can-
cer has spread too far in the deli-
cate tissues of the lung to halt by
the time it is discovered.
The film pointed out the statis-
tics proven by the Sloan-Kettering
Institute which definitely linked
the higher frequency of lung can-
cer patients as being heavy smok-
ers. The heavier the smoking hab-
its, the more frequent the instance
of lung cancer.
