A. P. Jackson, Gulf County Civil
Defense appeared before the City
Commission Tuesday night and
stated that Gulf County can re-
ceive a 200 bed emergency hospi-

vided for the material.
Jackson said that the hospital,
including a two week medical sup-
ply will be sent to Gulf County in

and put into use in case of a dis-
Jackson asked for space in the
City Warehouse to store the ma-

W. H. Weeks Store
An early morning fire caused
heavy damage to the W. H. Weeks
Store in Highland View early last
The alarm came to the Port St.
Joe Volunteers at 3:00 a.m. Fri-
day. The department fought the
blaze until 5:30 a.m.
Cause of the fire was unknown.
The blaze started in a. one story
addition at the rear of the main
two-story store building. Lack of
water and heavy winds hampered
the firemen's efforts to contain the
blaze to the one-story structure.
The ironic part of the fire was
that a fire plug was located just
across the street froin the burning
building. The plug is a part of the
new water system being installed
in Highland View. There was no
water connected to the plug.
Highland View's fledgling fire
department also answered the call
and fought the blaze alongside the
Port St. Joe Volunteers.
This was the first fire call to be
answered by the Highland View
group after securing their fire
Water to furnish the two de-
partments had to be hauled in tank

Dr. Grace Tests
Dr. Wesley Grace tested the
comprehension of the members of
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday by con-
ducting a "spelling bee" of words
found in the news recently. Most
of the words were taken from the
paper of Tuesday.
The comprehension of the club
members for what they read was
very good as only two or three
words were mis-spelled.
Prior to the spelling contest
President Bob Freeman reminded
the Kiwanians of the national ob-
jectives for the new year which

Tax Return Deadline
Is January 31, 1965
Laurie W. Tomlinson, District
Director of Internal Revenue, to-
day reminded Florida taxpayers that
January 31, 1965 is the deadline for
filing quarterly Federal excise tax
returns and quarterly returns of
income tax and social security taxes
withheld for the quarter ended De-
cember 31, 1964.
Mr. Tomlinson said that the In-
ternal Revenue Service will furnish-
pre-addressed returns to taxpayers
required to file, and requested that
the pre-addressed returns be used
so as to insure accurate posting to
the Service's Automatic Data Proc-
essing records. Mr. Tomlinson also
said that taxpayers liable for more
than $100 of excise or employment
taxes in any one month are re-
quired to deposit these funds in
either local authorized banks or a
Federal Reserve Bank and to ob-
tain a depositary receipt. The re-
turns due on or before January 31
should be accompanied by the de-
positary receipts and payment in
full for any balance due.
Mr. Tomlinson added that on
"Employer's Tax Guide," Circular
E, which contains a full discussion
of employment taxes and methods
of computing such taxes, may be
obtained without cost at any local
Internal Revenue office.

Dixon, of the Florida Department
of Veterans Affairs, announced to-
day that under existing laws, serv-
icement are given portal to portal
protection for disability and death
benefits for diseases or injuries
sustained while proceeding to or
returning from extended active
In the case of active duty for
training (2 weeks training) or in-
active duty training (weekly or bi-
weekly drill or instructional train-
ing), portal to portal coverage was
provided for injuries which caue-
ed disability or death, but only for
periods of travel on and after Jan.

to the attention of all potential
eligible veterans and widows that
Public Law 88-616 extended cover-
age for injuries causing disabili-
ties or death to periods prior to
Jan. 1, 1957.
Dixon further said that no gen-
eral review will be undertaken by
the Veterans Administration to
identify previously disallowed cases
which may be affected by this new
law, and only when a case is iden-
tified by routine review or upon
request of a claimant or his ac-
credited representative will action
be taken to pay the benefit. Dixon
suggests that any person thinking
the yare eligible should contact
their local veteran County Service
Officer, or write to him at P. 0.
