ch .oo Library In
leed of Books
Through the combined efforts of
the Tri Hi Y, Jr. Tri Hi Y, Library
assistants and other clubs, the Port
St. Joe High School is sponsoring
a book drive to acquire more books
for the library.
The Library at the present time
has the bare minimum required
number of books of the State and
Southern Association Accrediting
Agency, five books per pupil. The
aim of Library personnel is to
have ten books per pupil or 6,000
books as soon as possible. This
amount, ten per pupil, is the num-
ber of books required now for a
top rating by the state.
Anyone who has any books that
they would like to give to the li-
biary, please call the Port St. Joe
High School during school hours
or on Saturday, May 16 and leave
your name, address and the time

Dr. John Maguire

Dr. John Maggire of Jacksonville,
Secretary of the Florida Baptist
Convention, spoke to the Rotary
Club last Tt1ursday calling for men
to be men in face of impurity, in-
justice and impiety that rules the
valency of divorce and promiscuity
in America today with graphic ex-
amples. Today, divorce topples one
marriage out of three. "Any na-
tion which destroys its family life
will fall", said the speaker.
The speaker spoke of the injus-
tice which prevails in the nation.
He pointed out that men are look-
ing out for self and not caring for
the feelings or future of others.
"What kind of men does God
and our country need today? Men
of character and courage".
In closing Dr. Maguire urged
men of today to be faithful and
loyal to their church and its teach-
ings, to combat the evils in the na-
