Health Department Feud In Open


For almost a year now, the
Gulf County Commission has
known it has personnel prob-
lems in the Gulf County Health
Departments. The trouble
came to the surface Tuesday,
with the complaint by County
Sanitarian N. C. Schweikert
that his mileage allowance
had been cut to only 800 miles
;per month, when his job
normally requires some 1200
'to 1500 miles of travel per
month for performance of his
duties. "I take two trips a
week to Wewahitchka as a
regular thing, and this takes
400 miles of that travel


allowance right there".
Schweikert said he couldn't
take care of all of the needs of
Gulf County on only 800 miles
per month. He went on to say
that Nurse Harden in Port St.-
Joe receives allowance for 500
miles of travel, clerk Mont-
gomery in Port St. Joe 200
miles, nurse Dean in Wewa-
hitchka 250 miles and clerk
Luckie in Wewahitchka 100
miles.
When asked why the clerks
were allowed mileage pay-
ments, Schweikert replied,
"For going to the post office."

kOfficials Inspect


Dredge Spoil Site

Several officials of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and the Department of Environmental Resources came to
Port St. Joe Tuesday to inspect two possible dredge spoil
sites for dredging the Port St. Joe harbor back to project
depth.
The officials were shown the "bird island" site off St. Joe
Paper Company, as the primary choice of the Corps of
Engineers for the spoil, and an alternate site north of
Highland View on the banks of the Gulf County Canal.
: Inspecting the sites were Joe Boda, Alton Colvin, Dennis
Wilson and Harry Peterson of the Corps of Engineers and
Marvin Collins of the DNR.
S 'Dredging maintenance for the harbor, which has silted in
over the years, has been funded for this year if an acceptable
spoil site can be determined.
Tuesday's inspection trip was to familiarize the
regulating agencies with the possible spoil sites and discuss
the probable problems which could result from the proposed
sites.
The Corps of Engineers. will have a barge in the Bay
today to take some core samplings in the area to be dredged
and around the "bird island" area, to determine what lies on
the bottom. The information gained from the core samplings
will be. used in determining which of the sites will be
acceptable for a spoil site.,

gressed, it was evident from
Schweikert's comments that
there was enmity between he
and Dr. W. T. Weathington. "I
know I have received letters of
commendation for my ser-
vices and yet they are not in
my personnel file", Schwei-
kert charged. He went on to
say that so far as he knows
there has never been a staff
meeting of the Health Depart-
ment in the six years he has
served as Sanitarian.
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man asked Schweikert, "Does
Dr. Weathington have you on
probation?"
Schweikert replied, "He has
me on a 60 day probation."
Gortman asked, "Why?"
Schweikert said; "He is
apparently trying to get rid of
me." Schweikert went on to
***


say he has taken the matter up
with the head of HRS in
Tallahassee.
Chairman James Tankers-
ley then got into the discussion
and said, "I want a letter
written to Dr. Weathington
asking why the cut-back in
mileage was made and why he
is hard-timing Schweikert and
the personnel in the Wewa-
hitchka clinic. I also want a
meeting of all parties involved
with the Commission."
Commissioner Doug Bir-
mingham, "I think such a
meeting is just a waste of
time. If the boss man doesn't
run a tight ship, you've got
problems."
Tankersley replied, "I still
want the letter written. This
thing has gone on too long. It
has gotten out of hand. We


.County Served Order


Like it or not, the County
Commission has gotten itself
involved in the controversy at
St. Joe Beach where a group of
citizens is fighting the con-
struction of a cottage on the
water side of Highway 98 by
Theodore Meadows of Albany,
Georgia.
Recently, the Commission
took the step of declaring a
moratorium of- 30 days for
issuing building permits on
the water side of the highway
at St. Joe Beach. This has
resulted in Meadows filing a
suit against the County to
issue the permit or show cause
why they will not.
This means the Commission
must issue the permit or go to
court with the matter. On a
three to two vote Tuesday,


they decided to gosto court.
Commissioner Bjly Branch
made a motion Tuesday to
instruct the Board's attorney
to take any action necessary
to prevent construction in the
area, with the county absorb-
ing the cost in the matter.
Branch was joined in his
motion by Doug Birmingham
and Jaines Tankersley.
Commissioners Jimmy
Gortman and Eldridge Money
objected to the motion saying
they didn't feel the county
should spend the tax payers'
money on an issue which had
already been tested in court on
several occasions.

Courthouse on Thursday of

must defend their action.

Schweikert said he thinks
the problem started when he
went over Weathington's head
to get a sewage problem taken
care of in Wewahitchka after
Dr. Weathington had report-


edly told him it was not their
problem.
After Tankersley's letter is
written and the meeting is
scheduled, the year-long prob-
lem will probably finally come
to a head.

The City Commission meet-
ing Tuesday night was sort of
a "nuts and bolts" type
session for the Commission -
a long meeting with a lot of
business to handle, but hardly
any newsworthy events taking
place.
Mayor Allen McCulley of
Ward Ridge came before the
Commission and informed
them that his Commission was
making plans to extend the
water and sewer service of
Ward Ridge to some 141 more
lots in the city which snuggles
up to the southern edge of Port
St. Joe.
Since Ward Ridge gets its
water and sewer service from
Port St. Joe, McCulley wanted
to make sure the services
from the City to Ward Ridge
could handle the proposed
expansion.
McCulley was asked to keep
the City advised on the


progress of the project.
INSPECT SEWERS
Rod Westall of Russell and
Axon, the City's engineers
currently performing a study
of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant at the direction of the
federal government, told the
Commission Tuesday night
that the study had revealed
the City had several trouble
spots in its collection system
and suggested a further study
be made to determine what
had to be done to stop ground
water from seeping into the
collection system.
Westall said this seepage
was putting a load on the
collection system.
Westall suggested that the-
City undergo a second phase
of inspection studies of the
collection system, including
inspection of the lines with a
television camera to deter-
mine just where the leakage


was and what it would take to
repair it.
Westall put a $59,000 price
tag on the study and the
Commission decided to mull
that one over before giving his
firm a final answer.
HIRING PROBLEM
Mrs. Madeline Swatts pre-:
sented her objections to the
Commission for having been
told she had a job at the:
Wastewater Treatment Plant
office, then being informed the
job had been given to another
party, Mrs. Johnnie Adams.
Mrs. Swatts said she had
been hired by manager Bob
Simon and then was told Mrs.
Adams had the job after being
hired by City Clerk Alden
Farris.
Mayor Pate told Mrs.
Swatts there was misunder-
standing in the hiring process

Sharks Bump Tigers, 58-55, for Trip to State Tourney


T;he only people in the Chipley
gymnasium who had room to wiggle or
stretch were the players on the court
last Saturday night, as the Sharks went


against the Tigers for the Section 1-AA
championship and the opportunity to go
to Lakeland this week end for the state
tournament. And they did wiggle

on the shoulders of Port St. Joe fans Saturday night, after
sinking 24 points in the Sharks' win over the Chipley Tigers.


through four action packed quarters in
a deafening din of noise from their fans,
which seemed equally divided for the
Sharks and the Tigers.


Larry and the fans were understandably happy over the win
which sends the Sharks into the state tournament this week
end. -Star photo


A key rebound by John Pittman,
with only 16 seconds remaining in a two
point game, preserved a hard-fought
Shark victory against the Chipley
Tigers Saturday night, and sent the
Sharks into the state tournament in
Lakeland.
With a two point lead, the Tigers'
ace 6'6" William Brown was fouled by
Jerry Filmore and Brown went to the
line for a one and one. After he had put
26 points on the board from that spot
during the game, Brown missed his
first shot and Pittman went up above
the Chipley tall men and came down
with the rebound. He passed the ball off
to Daryl Garland, who took off for
the Shark side of the court. Garland
was immediately fouled by Andre
Belcher and made one of his two free
throws to give the Sharks a 58-55 win
over the Tigers.
It was a "David and Goliath" game
with the Sharks using the sling-shot
shooting arm of Ricky Larry and the
quick defensive action of John Pittman,
Daryl Garland, Jerry Filmore, Frank-
lin Thomas and the first half long shots
of Rozelle Jenkins to fell the Tigers,
three of which stood well above six feet.
There was a never a lead more than
six points and that big lead was held by


the Tigers as they opened up the second
half with two straight baskets to lead
33-27. The Sharks had had enough by
this time and started a full court press
which saw the Tigers turn the ball over
in their side of the court twice in the
third period when Ricky Larry stole a
Chipley pass and tossed to Pittman for
the score to put the Sharks back in the
lead with 3:40 left in the third. Then,
with the period running out, Daryl
Garland and John Pittman stole the
ball from the Tigers at mid-court and
tossed to Larry for a 41-39 lead for the
Sharks.
Although the Tigers tied the game
twice in the last period, the Sharks
never let the lead go again.
The game started out with neither
team able to hit the nets with their
shots. It was 5:23 left in the first period
before the first basket was put on the
scoreboard when Ricky Larry hit on a
lay-up. Rozelle Jenkins who played
point guard in the first half, hit twice
and Larry hit once again to give the
Sharks an 8-4 lead with about three
minutes left, before the Tigers began to
chip away at the Shark lead and had the
game tied with less than a minute to go.
Jenkins hit again at the buzzer to give


the Sharks a 12-10 lead at the rest
period.
The Tigers put on their best scoring
run in the second quarter, out-scoring
the Sharks 19-15 to go into the half time
rest period with a two point lead.
Then, the Sharks came back with the
quick Franklin Thomas back in at point
guard and their full court press..
Thomas has missed several games
recently from a bout with the flu and
pneumonia.
Still, it was the quick hands of Larry
and Pittman, who kept stealing the ball:
from the Tigers, which kept the Sharks:
in the game.
The game was a well-played;
contest with only 15 fouls called for both:
sides. The Sharks had eight opportuni-
ties at the free throw line and made
good on four of them. The Tigers had
two chances at the charity stripe and
made only one of them. So, like the
* Wakulla game, it was the free throws-
which won the game for the Sharks.
Ricky Larry shot above his 23 point
average to lead the Sharks with 24
points. Jerry Filmore was the only
other Shark scoring in double figures
with 11 points.
The Tigers highly-recuited Larry

Governor Has A Funny Way of Reducing Tax Burden


Governor Bob Graham announced last
week that he is preparing to give the
Legislature a proposal to put a cap on local
government spending of 10 percent increase
per year.
You'll have to look hard among tax payers
to find anyone to disagree with what the
governor proposes, especially in this day of
rising taxes and property values. The average
home owner could hardly care less, since the
present tax laws are letting him off pretty light
as it is.
Being a tax payer, we won't argue with the
governor that some sort of tax relief is needed.
But we hardly think it is the governor's job to
do this thing. We think this especially when the
governor is proposing tax increases himself
and more than the cap he proposes for local
governments in the areas in which he is
promoting a tax increase.
The governor would limit local tax
increases to 10 percent a year. He is proposing
a sales tax on the sales of gasoline, which
..--..1A 1 i:1-n +ht n _r:i..1_ fmv h. civ &,n4-n i


governor.
State meddling with local taxation is one of
the prime reasons local taxes went up more
than 10 percent here in Gulf County this year,
and we suppose the same holds true in other
places, also. Lifting the tax burden off the
average property owner and placing it on
people who own more than one piece of
property has increased the tax payers taxes


considerably simply because the tax burden is
now divided between far fewer tax payers.
That's state meddling and the prime cause of
the tremendous increases we have seen this
year.
Historically, local taxes, especially in Gulf
County, have risen far less than 10 percent per
year, and considerably less than the rate of
inflation, while state tax programs can't make


that claim.
We have no objections to the governor's
proposed desire to reduce taxes, but his efforts
thus far have only re-distributed the same tax
burden among fewer tax payers. These fewer
tax payers don't have the clout at the voting
machines which is enjoyed by those who have
had their taxes lowered. And, we call that
reducing the tax burden.


County Going to be Forced Into the Water Business


We have no objections to the County
Commission setting up water districts in the
more thickly populated unincorporated com-
munities in the county, if they are established
in such a manner in which they will pay their
own way at no burden to the already
beleaguered county tax payer.
The benefits of a central water system
which will provide approved treated water to
these areas is needed, we think, to keep down

with private systems as well as provide a more
dependable supply.
If the systems are run properly.
And that's the reason for this blurb.
If the county continues to create water
districts throughout the county, we can see
where the county is also going to be forced into
the creation of a water department to operate
the machinery in these districts as well as take
care of needed repairs, tie-ins and meter
reading.
The county-sponsored system in Oak


Grove runs properly and is self sustaining
simply because the City of Port St. Joe does all
maintenance work and billing at a small fee to
the system. The Highland View system is not
so fortunate simply because there is no paid
personnel responsible for keeping the system
up.
The county could very well get into the
water department business on a self-paying
basis and provide a service the people in thes4
crowded communities need at a fair price. -
We don't think they will ever* manage to
do that in any other way.

nto Situations They Can't Explain Way Out Of


One Senate aide remarked, when
Mrs. Hawkins made her remark, "I
almost choked on my New-York strip."
Mrs. Hawkins said she paid for the
dinner out of her pocket, but some of the


writers wondered in print where she got
the money.

THEN THE U.S. Post Office had
the eager beavers from the press
looking down their red ink ledger when
they started a program of spending
some $28 million to build a center in an
exclusive section of Maryland to train


postal service managers.
The people who lived in the
subdivision have gone to court and
launched a nation-wide publicity cam-
paign on the plans because they don't


want the center in their neighborhood.
According to the Postal Service
they are building the center in which to
bring in key people for three-week
courses in such subjects as work
scheduling, meeting budgets and get-
ting maximum productivity from em-
ployees.
If the center will guarantee we can


get our mail on time, the postal budget
will be balanced without horrendous
rate increases and a parcel will arrive
at its destination in one piece, perhaps
the center will be a good investment
after all.
Again, it may just be a case of
tossing more good money after bad.
ALTHOUGH HE IS now out of
office and should be immune to the
theme of the 80's, former President
Carter is still having his problems.
With the Democrats, in the 70's, it
was "Spiro, who?" Now it is "Jimmy
who?". The former President was
ignored by his party when it came to
selection of a speaker for the annual
Jefferson-Jackson dinner, THE big
affair for the Democrats every year.
Who did they select to make the big
speech? Jay Rockerfeller.
I guess Senator Ted Kennedy is just
as upset about that turn of events as is
President Carter. That must mean
the Democratic National Committee is
already beginning to groom Governor
Rockerfeller for the next try at the big

Reggie was late reporting to the

George Steinbrenner, his boss, doesn't
like it. As a matter of fact, he said he
was going to fine Reggie $2,500 for

I think Reggie can afford it, but it
didn't stop there. Reggie said he had
George's permission to be late, so he
was exercising that permission in order
to take care of some personal business.

George Steinbrenner was paying me

Sharks Hit Hard but Still




Have to Win First Game


The Sharks have started
their baseball season, and
after three games and some
hard hitting, they still are to
win their first game.
Baseball coach Kesley Col-
bert said at the beginning of
the season his team would be
plagued with pitching prob-
lems, since he didn't have a
seasoned pitcher on the squad.
Colbert's words are proving to
be more than the usual
manager's blues.
In their season opener last
Wednesday, the Sharks lost a
4-1 decision to the Marianna
Bulldogs in Marianna.
The Bulldogs collected four
'unearned runs in the first
inning and held the Shark
batters at bay to win.
The Sharks had Pat Kerigan
on the mound, who collected

it from 7:00 a.m., to 10:00 p.m.,
all over the county for those
who needed it if the program
It was initiated. "It could cost
thousands of dollars", Pitts
i said.
0 Still trying to get out of filing
the report and being required
to get into the program by the
state, Commissioner Birming-
ham suggested the Board
write the legislative delega-
tion, the governor, the cabinet
and the DOT and tell them just
how ridiculous the program is,
especially for a county the size
of Gulf.
As it wound up, Commis-
sioner Branch said, "I would
definitely rather the county
write the plan rather than the
state." The Commission then
decided to have Community
Services Director Rodney
Herring write the report as
well as write the letters Bir-
mingham wanted.
The county's plans to con-
struct a boat landing on the
Gulf of Mexico at Palm Point
ran into a snag this past week,
with the Department of En-
vironmental Regulation and
other environmental groups
fearing such a landing will

recently following an evalua-
tion of personnel procedures
by the State Department of
Commerce. The City had
adopted a procedure drawn up
by the Department, which
centered all hiring of em-
ployees in City Hall, or Mr.
Farris. Mayor Pate explained
that the proper procedure
would have been for Simon to
inform Farris of any prefe-
ence he had for the position.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Considered the hospital
insurance plan of the Florida
League of Cities for its em-
ployees to replace the policy
now placed with Aetna, which
is running out this month.
-Received two quotations
for study from McCormick
Contracting Company of Lynn
Haven and Harder's Construc-
tion Company of Panama City
. to put in a test strip of an
n installation on the toe of the
. dike at the Wastewater Treat-
. ment Plant which is designed
e to control seepage through the
n dike.
" -Approved payment of a
' contribution of $1,125.00, to the
e Northwest Regional Library
e System for the Port St. Joe
e branch.
a -Received a notice from
s the Department of Environ-
e mental Regulation that that
- agency would be auditing the
- Wastewater Treatment Plant
records in the near fthin-r


disturb certain grass beds and
marshes in the area. DER is
also of the opinion the landing
would be located in Class II
waters. As a result of the
concern by the environmental-
ists, the possibility for obtain-
ing a permit for the structure
in the near future look dim.
The Commission had state
funds which they were going
to utilize for the project and a
landing at Brown's Creek on
the Sauls' Creek road.
Since the Gulf side landing
was in limbo at the time, some
of the Board members wanted
to spend a portion of the state
money on the Brown's Creek
landing.
Commissioner Billy Branch
held out for the County doing
the Brown's Creek landing
with county forces since it
would be a simple installation,
and saving the state money for
the Gulf landing. "We don't
have a single landing on the
Gulf in a county which has
some of the best salt water
fishing in the state", Branch
remarked.
When the discussion ended,
there was still no definite
decision as to what the Board
would do other than to keep
trying to secure a permit for
the Palm Point Gulf side
landing.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe Fla. Thursday, March 12, 1981


River
Tie prospect of a three-fold
increase in barge traffic on
the Apalachicola-Chatta-
hoochee-Flint within two
years was revealed at a
meeting of the Tri-Rivers
Waterway Development
Association here Feb. 26.
The meeting was to have
been a quiet planning session.
Then officers learned that a
significant portion of Florida's
future electrical generation
will depend on receiving coal
by barge.
H.B. Hirt, Jr., manager of
the Jackson County (Fla.)
Port Authority, read a news
release from Seminole
Electric Cooperative, Tampa,
announcing the award of a
22-year contract for the def-
ivery of three million tons of
coal annually up the Apalachi-
cola River. The coal will
travel from there by rail to a
power plant under construc-
tion on the St. Johns River
about 50 miles south of Jack-
sonville.
The new plant. the Seminole
release explained, will supply
electricity to more than
300,000 homes, business and
dustries in 47 Florida coutint-
S Completion of the first
t is scheduled for mid-1983
and the second, for early 1985.
The use of coal by the new
plant, company officials said,
will save approximately 31,000


Barge
barrels of oil per day, or 11.
million barrels per year.
The barging contract wen
to Central Gulf Lines, Inc., o
New Orleans, a company wit
many years experience in th
operation of LASH lighte
abord ship) barges throughout

Seeds Offer A Greater


Selection for Gardeners


by
Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The biggest advantage in
starting a home vegetable
garden directly from seed is.
that you can choose a wider
selection of crop varieties.
Your garden center may have
several varieties' of seed for a
given crop, but only one or two
varieties of transplants. Also,
some crops just don't trans-
plant very well. You're better
off starting from seed with
beans, corn, cucumbers, turn-
ip and similar crops. On the
other hand, some crops trans-
plant quite well. These include
things like tomatoes, collards
and cabbage. If transplants
are available for these crops,
they're probably a better bet
than starting from seed; un-
less you're planning a very
large garden.
It is true that just about all
vegetables can be grown from
seed. The most common ex-
ceptions are sweet potatoes,
strawberries, and Iris pota-
toes. For specific recommen-
dations on the crops you want
to grow, check with your
garden center, or County
Extension office.
If you decide to start from


seed, get the best quality you
can find. Seed quality could
mean the difference between
success and failure in your
garden. Do, always buy good
seed from reliable dealer. For
a few crops, you can save seed
from you own garden. But, for
many crops that isn't prac-
tical. Since most seed is
relatively inexpensive, you
are probably better off, buying
the seed you need, if it's
available.
It's also important to buy
tested seed varieties. You'll
have the best chance for
success in your garden if the
plant crop varieties with some
resistance to common Florida
pests. Of course, you can plant
anything you like, but, many
gardeners cheat themselves
by continuing to plant inferior
varieties, without even trying
the varieties recommended
for our state. You can find
current vegetable variety
recommendations in Exten-
sion Circular 104, "The vege-
table gardening guide". Cir-
cular 104 is avialable at your
County Extension Office, and
many garden centers have
reference copies.
There is one note of caution
to keep in mind when handling
seeds. Most of the seeds you'll

At the request of the associ-
ation, Congress in 1976 ap-
propriated money to have the
Corps of Engineers remove
rock hazards in Florida and
Georgia and Alabama stre-
tches of the waterway. How-
ever, difficulties arose and the
Florida part of' the work was
never done.
The governors of Alabama,
Georgia and Florida have
since appointed a task force on
river problems, and Bishop
said much progress has been
made.
Present at Thursday's meet-
ing, along with Tri-Rivers
directors, were task force
members Lowell Evjen of
Georgia, Walter Stevenson of
Alabama and representatives
of the Mobile district and


DER, representing Florida
task force member Jake Varn,
recommended strategy for
gaining approval of the three-
year problem solving effort,
or "Level-B" study. The
governors' task force and the
Tri-Rivers Board of Directors
all strongly support the $1
million proposal, which was
drafted by Evjen and re-
viewed favorably by the fed-
eral Water Resources Council
(WRC). The President's pro-
posed budget, however, in-
cludes no funding for specific
WRC projects.
The Tri-Rivers Board made
plans to testify before Con-
gressional water resources
appropriation subcommittees
the last week in March. Rep.
Tom Bevill of Alabama heads

MARRIAGE TAX


In his speech of Feb. 18th,
President Reagan proposed
sweeping cuts in federal expen-
ditures and initiatives for tax
reform. In addition to his pro
posal to cut individual income
taxes by 10% for three con-
4 secutive years, President
Reagan promised in the future
to work with Congress in
eliminating the infamous
"marriage tax."
This inequity in our current
tax law causes married people
to pay more in taxes to the
*federal government than they
would if they were single. Con-
sequently, this provision of tax
law acts as a penalty to those
who wish to marry and start
!.. families.
The present tax system' is
S based on an outdated assump-
tion that the majority of mar-
ried couples depend on wages
of a single breadwinner in the
family. Government census-
estimates indicate that over
; 5Q /o-of all American families
currently have two wage
earners. This trend has been
apidly accelerating since the
1 r' .l950s. The two most signifi-
cant events that have brought
:'about the two wage earner
family are the changing role of
American women in our socie-
ty and the growth of inflation.
Inflation has devastated
American families in their pur-
suit of a moderate lifestyle and
: a better future for their
:'children. Presently, the
S'American family is buffering
itself against further reductions
in sustaining a moderate.
lifestyle as their purchasifig
power is slowly being eaten
away by increases in housing
costs, utility bills and food
prices. In addition, rising costs
in education and the overall
impact of inflation on family
savings and investments have
put our children's futures in
extreme peril. Eliminating the
marriage tax will not be the
"cure all" in resolving the
financial problems of families
across the nation, but it can be
quite a significant step in
relieving some of the tax
burden.
Under present law, if the
wife goes to work to help sup-
port the family, her first dollar
of income is taxed at the same
rate as the last dollar earned by
her husband. Therefore, her
income is taxed at a higher


rate. This, combined with ex.
penses for child care,
housekeeping services, com-
muting and other work-related
expenses, creates a real work
disincentive.
For example, a husband
with an unemployed wife and a
salary of $15,000 pays $1,635
in taxes. If his wife goes to
work at the same salary as his,
she pays nearly $4,000 in taxes.
I have joined with more
than 200 of my colleagues in
sponsoring legislation which
would allow"two wage earner
couples the option of filing as
if they were single. I am opti-
mistic that the 97th Congress
'will pass this legislation to cor-
rect an unfair tax which
discriminates against so many
American families.

CONSTANT


ADVERTISING


One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walking.


One word won't tell 'em who you are
You've got to keep on talking.


An inch won't make you very tall.
You've got to keep on growing.


One little ad won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.


A constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;


By constant gnawin', Towser
Masticates the toughest bone.


The constant, cooing lover

Carries off the blushing maid.


And the constant advertiser

Is the one who gets the trade!


Make us prove it.
