Instructions Offered In Operation
Of County's New Voting ,Machines
Gulf County's voters will use automation in casting
their ballots on May 7 for the first time in history. The
County Commission has purchased 12 new voting ma-
chines for use in county elections. The purchase of the
new machines will put Gulf right in among the larger
counties in reporting their vote total almost as soon as
the polls close, rather than having to endure an all-night
vigil to wait for a count of paper ballots. The counting
has become a large and arduous task in such precincts as
eight, nine, 10 and 11, as well as one and two in Wewa-
The new machines must be used properly in order
for a vote to be properly cast. For this reason, Mrs. C.
G. Rish, Supervisor of Elections, has placed three of
'the machines on display, so that the voting public may
come by and be instructed in the use of the machines.
Voting machines will be on display today and to-
morrow in the Florida First National Bank and the
Gulf County Courthouse, here in Port St. Joe and in the
Wewahitchka State Bank in Wewahitchka. Election
officials are on hand at each machine to explain their
While the use of machines makes voting simple,
there is some need for instruction, and Mrs. Rish urges
that all voters take advantage of this instruction period.
The voting machines will be located in Precincts
One and Two in Wewahitchka and in Precincts Eight
through Eleven on election day. Voters in these Pre-
cincts are especially urged to make themselves familiar
with their operation.

it Takes the Old "Know How"
Several years ago, before he came to work at St. Joe Paper
Company, Roy Irwin lived on a farm. While he lived on that
farm he grew large crops. Now that he is retired from St. Joe
Paper, he has converted his back yard on Eighth Street into a min-
iature farm and reverted to his original state-that of farmer.
Irwin proved last week what a little bit of remembered know-how,
plus fertilizer, plus water, plus this sand soil can do in the growing
of cabbages. This cabbage was the largest in a patch which bore
cabbages weighing on an average of three to four pounds a head.

Car and Truck

the Wayside Park at Mexico Beach,
according to the Florida Highway
According to the records i
Trooper Ken Murphy, a seafoY'
truck, driven by Jerry Leroy Cook
of Panama City was traveling to-
ward Panama City on U. S. 98
when a station wagon, driven by
Ira Burrel Hanna, Jr., pulled out
of a side street in front of the
truck, resulting in a collision.
Murphy said that the truck dri-
ver, who was traveling about 45
miles per hour, put his machine
into a skid for 48 feet in an ef-
fort to avoid hitting the station
wagon. The truck struck the sta-
tion wagon on the driver's side at
the rear door, spinning it around
and pushing it off the left side of
The driver of the wagon, Ira
Hanna, Jr., was taken to the Mu-

Our Man for Senator
In these days of three county Representative Dis-
tricts and 10 County Senator Districts, it is kind of hard
for the people of Gulf County to even be acquainted with
the candidates seeking office, much less be familiar with
the fact of whether or not they are qualified.
It hasn't become too hard as yet in the Representa-
tive District since most of us know the candidates, their
background and their qualifications. How long this will
continue, we can't say.
But our Senatorial District is another matter.; Prob-
ably very few of our people knew either of the candidates'
running prior to the race. Even now, they are not too well
'known because of their distance from us and the territory
they must cover in their campaign. It is impossible for
them to spend enough time anywhere to become well ac-
quainted and' knowledgeable to their voting public.
We would like to recommend one of these men to you
for your approval in the Senator's race.
This man, we believe, can do more for the people of
the district, than the other 'two candidates or we would
not recommend him. He has, the time and the resources
along with the desire to serve the people, which will make
him an effective Senator for the Sixth ,District. We rec-
commend Cecil A. Kennedy of Jasper as your candidate
There are several reasons why we do this.
First, the desire of Mr. Kennedy to do what he can
to help North Florida. As you know, Mr. Kennedy is
"comfortable" financially. He has no need of any more
financial income and he isn't' seeking it. When we first,
heard of Kennedy, our suspicious nature told us that "here
is a man, well off financially, who now wants to make a
name for himself." We now know that this isn't true. It
is almost impossible to conceive after you meet the man.
He is humble.. He doesn't talk much. He is a patriot and
he loves the State, of Florida. Although he is quiet, when,
he says something it means something. Kennedy is of
the conservative nature of most North Floridians.
Secondly, Mr. Kennedy is a successful businessman.
Nobody can argue with that. H-e has built a prosperous
business and agricultural foundation .his native Jasper.
We believe that we need good sound businessmen in our
State Iegislature. We have a sufficiency of lawyers and
politicians in the Legislature to keep things operating le-
gally and in the proper political atmosphere. We need'
some successful businessmen to handle the largest single
business in the State of Florida. We believe Mr. Kennedy
would be prudent with our dollars while maintaining a
steady growth in the State. ,
Thirdly, we .believe that ,Mr. Kennedy, by his back-
ground, would need little coaching to acquaint him with
the in's and out's of Florida's three main items of economy;
agriculture, tourism and manufacturing. iMr. Kennedy is
the operator of a large farm-both row crops and tree'
farming. He has been successful at these ventures and
knows the needs of agriculture. He is also the successful
operator of a.small business and knows the problems and
needs in this area. He has been instrumental in securing
several industries for his area and knows how to go about'
it. He has pledged what knowledge he has for use by the
rest of his area, if elected. His home town sits astride

CARS OF THE FUTURE
Now that the United States has almost a hundred mil-
lion cars, trucks and buses registered, a lot of people are
beginning to think that maybe the industry got off on the
wrong foot as far back as the Gay Nineties.
Indications of this keep appearing in the public press.
One prime target is the internal combustion engine, which
some think has to go. Many of these critics feel we could
find inspiration for a new engine in the admirable Stanley
Steamer of grandpa's era. In the next year or so a fortune
is going to be spent in new experiments with a steam-
driven engine. Others are convinced that what we really
ought to have 'is a 19,68 version of the smooth-running
electrics that were often seen in the better neighborhoods
a half-century ago.
The internal combustion engine has been brought to
a peak of perfection, and it is a highly efficient mechanism.
But there has always been a strong feeling in some quar-
ters that if half the effort expended on behalf of the gas-
oline engine had been used to improve the steam type we
would be better off. Certainly, these enthusiasts say, a
steamer would not pollute the air as much as a gasoline-
driven car does,
Electric car ,buffs use the same argument. In fact
several manufacturers, including Ford and'General Motors
are now thinking electrically. One three-way project has
the University of Pennsylvania, General -Motors and the
Federal Government tied up in a deal which has produced
a car which runs with a battery-driven mihotor in combina-
tion with a gasoline engine.
The nation's growing death toll is naturally causing
great concern and this is reflected in mandatory car safety
features of various kinds. Some, such as seat belts and
harness are excellent-if people can be persuaded to use
them. Others are questionable at best. In the latter cate-
gory is a recent government brainstorm which suggested
that cars be equipped with a device that would honk the
Shorn and cause lights to flash if the car reached certain
excessive speeds. The industry, understandably, expressed
no enthusiasm for this, idea.
Detroit, being experienced in these matters, still be-
lieves that the biggest safety problem lies in the nut posi-
tioned at the wheel. Steam, electric, or gasoline, that will
remain a basic problem.

Usually when one complains about his type of bad luck, all he
gets is, "That's tough, buddy". But we have found out that this
isn't so in a small town like Port St. Joe. People tend to help their
Just last week, for instance, we explained about the type of
bad luck we have; nothing trivial; everything a crisis. Our neigh-
bors felt sad over our trend to the disastrous and helped out a little.
Saturday Ellis Stevens and Charles Lowery, along with John Fadio
and George Asse came by to get us to take a picture of the 10
ling (or Cobia) they caught in St. Joseph Bay. They sent us a big
mess of the fish for our very own. Also Saturday we went by Roy
Irwin's house to take a picture of his big cabbage and he gave us
a mess of new potatoes and fresh onions-hand grown in his gar
den. Then Saturday afternoon Sunbeam bakeries sent us by a
basket of their bread, cake and rolls to add to the larder. There
was Sunday, dinner all but the iced tea.
The American Cancer Society is fixing to get itself into trou-
'They can preach that cigarette smoking, eating charred meat,
continued irritation, eating cranberries, too much sun, and painting
yourself with nicotine can cause cancer. They can get away
with these arguments without too much trouble.
But this latest warning may do the Society in. They are now
making the claim that a virus transmitted by kissing may be a
cause of cancer. People may stop smoking cigarettes through
fright. They may even stop eating cranberries, charred meat and
staying out in the sun too long in order to protect themselves
from the possibility of contracting cancer. But, when the Society
begins to advocate that people cease and desist kissing in order
to prevent cancer, we predict that the majority of the popula-
tion will just keep on living dangerously.
Mayor Daley of Chicago is borrowing a page from the book of
Miami Police Chief Headley in the treatment of arsonists, looters
and rioters. And. like Chief Headley, Mayor Daley has aroused a
righteous stream of protest of his "inhuman" tactics to control
uncontrolled violence and destruction of the property of innocent
people. But despite the shouts of indignation, Mayor Daley will
probably meet with the success of his intentions, just like Chief
Mayor John Lindsey of New York said, when he heard of Ma-
yor Daley's orders, "Use restraint i. everything will be all right.
Increased use of force might stir up the feelings of the rioters and
arsonists"; It would be mighty hard to stir them up to greater
destruction than has already been perpetrated.
What's the grand old game of baseball coming to?
Now we have lady umpires or at least a lady wanting to
umpire. One lady has entered suit against the big leagues for,
a job on their umpiring staff. She claims she has completed the
league's umpire school and is fully qualified.
We can just see it now on TV. Mantle is up to bat.
Tresh is on third, Peppitone on second and the count is three-
two. The score is tied in the last half of the ninth. Then the
umpire sings out, "Time out!" and proceeds to whip out her com-
pact to powder her nose so she will look good on TV making the
crucial call of the ballgame.
Just let this thing happen and the next thing will be a ballet
dancer as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.

These individual main dish pies provide fresh menu inspira-
tion. Cheese Petal Pies are themselves as fresh as the proverbial
spring flower. The flower theme is carried out in the pretty, yet
easy, petal pastry shells made with convenient pie crust mix.
Fashioning the shells is a neat 'n simple trick. A circle of
pastry fits in the bottom of each 5-inch pie tin and smaller circles
overlap around the sides to form the "petals." The savory filling
of wieners and bacon, topped with a mayonnaise-cheese combina-
tion, proves to be irresistible., Serve Cheese Petal Pies for your

Studies Ways to Combat Biting Insects
First Place Winners
These two young ladies, Martha Griffith and Cindy Chatham,
walked away with first place honors at the Port St. Joe High School
Talent Show last Wednesday morning. The show winners are the
daughters of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Griffith and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip
Chatham. The young ladies took first place in singing and accom-
panying themselves on the guitar.
Second place went to Lenohr Smith and Gary, and the Play-
mates. Miss Smith played two difficult pieces by Rachmaninoff and
Beethoven. Gary Reeves and his Playmates shared second place
with Miss Smith.
Third place in the show was captured by Peggy Henderson with
a piano selection by Rachmaninoff.
Steps are being taken, in a lab- "
oratory on St. Andrews Bay, to f
seek methods of controlling biting
insects in Northwest Florida, in-
cluding dog flies, sand gnats, salt
marsh mosquitoes, etc.
The director of this laboratory,
Ajax Rogers, spoke to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday, showing slides to
illustrate methods being used to
study the biting flies and experi-
ment with ways to control them.
It has been found that the dog
fly, which exists all over the na-
tion, breeds in rotting seaweed
along the Florida coasts. He breeds
in barn lot wastes inland. Rogers
said that the only time the dog

The pesky sand gnat which is a
summer pest in this area, breeds
in warm moist sandy soil along

The speaker said that the public

five percent of the crop of these
biting flies. Natural enemies such
as birds, and fish eat most of the
crop. "If it wasn't for the the nat-
ural enemy of these pests, we
wouldn't be able to live here".
The purpose of the laboratory is
to find methods of controlling the

and it was suggested by the presi-

from the Florida Historical Society

of Florida. President Stone also
suggested to have a new set of

Rooted azalea limbs are like
most young brides-they do best
when separated from their moth-
er's apron strings. Therefore, in-
spect your azaleas.
If you discover a rooted limb,
cut it loose from the mother
plant. Like humans, you've got to
coddle the new plant. This means
seeing that the newly dependent
plant is furnished with plenty of
food and water.
When the new plant is doing
well, move it to a new home. As
you know, it is hard to keep two
housewives or two plants happy
in the same home.
Now is the time to get ready to
propagate softwood cuttings. You
will have best luck with cuttings

You should have a cutting box,
which can be any container-pre-

drainage., Scale the box to fill your
needs, but be sure that it is not
too deep-six inches is plenty
When planning the cutting me-

Many media can be used, such
as sand, a 50-50 'mixture of sand
and peat, vermiculite or similar
Before putting the media in the
box be sure that it is sterile. Ster-
ilize the medium in the oven by
heating at about 250 degrees for
one-half hour to one hour.
Newly purchased peat and ver-
miculite should be sterile, but be-
fore it is re-used, however, it
should be sterilized.

On behalf of Melody Rebekah
Lodge No. 22 of Port St. Joe,
Florida, we wish to pay tribute
to the memory of our beloved
friend and Brother, Willian
Cullen Forehand who was called
to his heavenly home on April
the tenth as the hour hand slip-
ped to eleven and pain merged
into beauty; "Bright grew the
road his weary feet had trod;
He gave his salutation to the
morning and found himself be
fore the Face of God!"
Brother Forehand was a Char-
ter member of our Lodge and, as
long as his health permitted, was
regular attendant at all its meet-
ings and worked most ardently
for its promotion. He named our
Lodge "Melody," a name so
beautiful that we are forever
challenged by the highest graces
of music and the sublimity of
Although he lived to be 102
years of age, Brother Forehand
never seemed to live in the past.
He had a keen and sympathetic
understanding of youth. He was
a loving husband and Father,
ever teaching his grand-children
to cling to their highest ideals.
He believed that true happi-
ness comes from achievement
and he felt challenged to ever
to be engaged in some useful
activity, and one consonant with
some high goal; one big enough
to demand his struggle and
strength and to give satisfaction
His out-going spirit, his devo-
tion to his family, to the High-
land View Methodist Church,
The Masonic Orders, The Inde-
pendant Order of Odd-fellows,
The Century Club, and town of
Highland View which he found-
ed, earned for Brother Forehand
the love and respect of all who
had the privilege of knowing
him. We give thanks to God for
his life and service among us.

Proof Of Age Needed When Making
Application For Social Security
Proof of your date of birth or
age is one of the things you'll
need in order to apply for your
social security retirement benefits
according to Ted Gamble, District
Manager of the Panama City So-
cial Security office.
In fact, having adequate proof
of age at the time you apply can
save you two or three weeks or
even longer in the time it takes
to start receiving your checks.
Gamble stressed, however ,that you
should not delay making a claim
for benefits just because you don't
have a birth certificate or some
proof of age. Contact the social
security office and they will assist
you in obtaining evidence.
Gamble said that original birth
records are not available for many
people who are now reaching re-
tirement age, and it is frequently
difficult for them to obtain evi-
dence. What the Social Security
Administration would like for peo-
ple to do, however, is to start pre-
paring for this problem as early
as possible, especially those .who
