for Third Annual
Gulf County Fair
Prospects Looking Good for
Event To Be Bigger and
Better Than Ever
With the nearing of the Third
Annual Gulf County Fair, October
20 to 25, the various committees are
actively readying plans for the vari-
ous divisions of the event, and a
copy of the premium list has been
mailed to'all interested residents of
While a large number of exhibits
undoubtedly will be entered, as in
past years, it is the desire of the
fair organization that all who have
received the premium list will make
at least one entry. There, are 240
different items listed.
It is anticipated there will be an
outstanding exhibit of cattle and
hogs, since great improvement has
been made in this line in the county
during the past few years.
While crops suffered some dam-
age from the recent drought and
hot weather, damage was not too
serious, according to County Agent
'Cubie Laird, and there should be
some good exhibits of farm crops.
The women's division has ,been
carefully planned under the direc-
tion of Miss Ruth Milton, county
home demonstration-agent,.-and her
able assistants, afid will: include.
the usual entries ,of canned fruits
and meats, handicraft, and such.
The Lee Amusement Company,
the same outfit that played at last
year's fair, will make up the mid-
way and provide the chills, and
thrills of rides and shows which go
to make up a fair for both young
In the past, no provision has been
made for commercial displays, but
this year space will be provided for
home appliance displays, automo-
tive displays and the like.

Our Country y Right or Wroen
IKE CAN CLEAN HOUSE FOR US
(Reprinted from Wakulla County News)
The Clay and Columbia county Democratic
delegations put their finger on somethingthat
had been bothering us for some time. For the
past several years we have been increasingly
ashamed that we were a Democrat. We had lost
sight of the fact that there are two levels of the
party-that of .our state of Florida, and the na-
tional Democratic party.
We have read the national platforms in recent
years and wondered how we could swallow the
stuff ladeled out in the name of the party. We
have watched good rien from our state go to
Washington and be whipped into line or kicked
out of Washington, and felt ashamed. We have
hoped that somehow we of the Democratic party
would clean our own house and straighten out
our own affairs, but apparently this is not pos-
sible. And the Clay and Columbia Democratic
groups are pointing out that we are not leaving
the party by voting for Eisenhower, but that the
national party has left us and left us little choice.
It is a dirty thing to do-to get things in an
unholy mess and then insist that someone else
pitch in and clean up the place. But, since the
General appears to be both willing and even
anxious to do just this-then we are going to add
our little "X" and say: "Brother, you asked for
it, and here it is!"
For a young fellow trying to get along, Sena-
tor Richard Nixon has made considerable Ameri-
can history as this is written and his chances
for making still more could hardly be better.
What looked like a tempest in a teapot, launched
by a pinko newspaper and blown up to hurri-
cane proportions by Fair Deal politicos, has
changed its course, as such storms often do, and
at this moment, is tearing the Stevenson com-
placency to shreds.
Tomorrow is the last day to register if you
want to cast your vote for president November 4.
Treasury Secretary John L. Snyder, in a 25-
page "Report To Taxpayers," says the bureau of
internal revenue is now "a rejuvenated and
strong. organization. The inference is that after
firing 174 employes and taking collectorships out
of the political plum category, the revenues
aren't going to steal your money ,any more. We
hope, for our own health, the bureau is now as
pure as Snyder reports.
