County Commissioners are then
required to order an election to be
held countywide with all 'persons
who are qualified under the gen-
eral election laws allowed to vote.
The names of any town, 'village or
city located in the County may be
placed on the ballot for selection
as County Seat by filing them with
the Clerk of Circuit Court, and the
two Towns, Cities or Villages re-
ceiving the largest number of
votes shall be voted on in a run-
off election, with the one receiving
the largest vote in the run-off elec-
tion designated as the County Seat
for the next ten years. Costin poin-
ted out that this method would do
away with the need for Legisla-
tive action in the matter and keep
the action strictly local.
Senator Tapper was not avail-
able for comment at press time,
but at the Town Hall meeting held
recently,' he stated that if the peo-
ple wanted the Courthouse moved
to Port St. Joe he would do every-
thing in the form of legislation.

Radar Speed Control
Is Dernontrated Here
Patrolman Randall Robinson, a
Safety Education Officer of the
Florida State Highway Patrol dem-
onstrated the new radar viewing
device to check the speed of auto-
mobiles to local law enforcement
officers here Tuesday afternoon.
The scope puts out a radar beam
and as a car crosses the beam the
scope records the speed at which
the car is travelling. The machine
is so sensitive that-it will even
record the velocity of the wind
blowing against it.
Patrolman Randall stated that
soon the entire State Patrol will
be equipped with the scopes in
teams of two. A patrol car sets
with the scope and records the
speed of passing cars and radios
ahead to a waiting patrolman a
description and tag number of the
speeder for apprehension and the
patrolman then passes out safety
literature to the offender and a
booklet of penalties for not obey-
ing the Florida highway laws.

A YOUNG MAN'S FANCY TURNS
After a thorough investigation in the mat-
ter and after having examined the evidence
both pro and con and from the back to the front,
we are whole heartedly of the opinion that the
season of Spring is definitely here.
The appearance of this delightful season
of the year is usually the harbinger of many
strange and delightful actions and feelings in
people of both sexes and all ages.
Usually, without a single exception, at this
time of year, an older man's attention and inter-
ests are almost invariably turned and looks for-
ward to many pleasant afternoons in the warm
sunshine just sitting and soaking up all that free
vitamin "D" and watching the wonders of na-
ture unfold before their eyes.
The middle aged men usually get out the
fishing tackle about this time of year and get
it oiled and ready for use. We know that most
of the men around here keep their fishing tackle
ready and in, practically constant use the year
'round, but those few that don't, begin getting
ready to drown a few worms.
The younger men renew their vigor in pur-
suing the fairer sex and'look forward eagerly to

Now comes the rub, there's no swimming hole
around here to wear a path too, except the
bay and the gulf and one doesn't do much
swimming there, just floating and coughing salt
Around about this. time of the year it is
brought out forcefully that Port St. Joe is in
dire nseed0of a swimming pool to provide a lit-
tle something for the boys and girls to do dur-
ing the spring and summer months.
We have looked into the matter, and have
found that a swimming pool around here would
cost a nice piece of change; about $75,00pi0 in
fact for a real first class pool, and who wants
a second class?
That's a lot of money to sink in one project.,
But, the amount of money is not as great as
There are several ways that a swimming
pool could be financed here and we are going
to try a few of them. If you have any sugges-
tions and want a pool here for your children
how about giving us a: little boost and a few
suggestions. We're serious. What with the in-
creasing influx of tourists and tourist traffic,
not to mention the need to our own boys and
girls, a swimming pool would be a definite as-
set for our town, instead of a liability.
Give the matter a little serious thought and
let us know how you feel.

We found out last week that
there are a few people who read
this rag. Long about 10:00 Wednes-
day morning, we were loping gent-
ly along with our old Cotrell "98"
(98 loose pieces) when all at once
she sounded like an old Essex
throwing a rod, then coughed once
and stood still. Well, we looked at
the coating on the rollers,. check-
ed the revolutions (pulse in hu.
mans) and looked at the forms for
loose quoins aind nary a suspicious
looking varmint did we find. Then
came Ihe only thing to do. Get out
and get under. So get under we
did and found a drive gear in fif-
'te64 pieces. S:o we sighed a sigh
of. despair and mentally chalked up
a six hour op hour t ''wo rs to get-
the press, apart, two hours to get
our .friend and master fixer; An-
drew Martin to put the wheel back
together and braze it together.
'Then another two hours to put it
all back together again. We finally
got the part off in just a little 'over
two and'a.half hours and carried
it around to Andrew upon which
he made the discovery that the
three inch thick steel drive shaft
was cracked bad and bent and had
been so for some few years be-
fore it finally, gave way. By this
time it was dark and there was
nothing to do but wait til Thurs-
day morning at which time we
prevailed upon Mr. 'Hobaugh at the
paper mill to allow us to enter our
ailing part in the paper company
machine shop. He in turn took the
matter up, with Hisrry Saunders
and they ,graciously agreed to let
us' take the part to the machine'
shop to be fixed. Well they had to
take the full day on it and cut
off the ailing section of the drive
shaft and welded on a new'one and
turned it down to size and made
a part as good as new. It was a
struggle, but we got 'the paper out.
We feel we received our mon-
ey's worth in telephone service
Thursday and Friday morning by
people calling up to say "Wheah's
my papuh, bud".
We went down to the city hall
Tuesday afternoon to watch the
display there of the electronic
device to tell how fast a car is
travelling on the road. You know1
it's right amusing. 'There sat these
two patrol cars demonstrating the
gadget and up the boulevard these
cars would come burning the road
up, but just let the drivers catch
sight of those patrol cars and back
they'd. haul on the reins and se-
dately creep by at a modest 20
We suppose you read of the lit-
tle escapade around at Costin's De-
partment Store las' Sunday night.
Well, it seems that our local po-
lice have practically solved the;
crime and they are certain that
the perpetrator of the crime wa*
a teen-age boy. So we see that ugly,
demon "juvenile delinquency" lift-
ing his head in our town. Once
started, like anything else, it is
hard to cope: with and stop. In ref- .
erence to this we are pointing toi:
the above editorial as a possible
partial solution of the problem.
We cUd not have this in mind when
We wrote the editorial as it was
written the first of last week and
this only happ med Sunday. We
made mention of the fact that the
$75,000.00 'needed to construct a
pool was a lot of money but felt
reasonably sure that it would be
worth the amount in attractions to
tourists and convenience to the lo-
cal populace. Now, happenings
force us to come to the conclusion
that the price is cheap: and that a
swimming pool and other means
of diversion for young folks are
needed urgently. Hre we go again
with that age !old argument, "I
didn't have all that when I was a
kid". Also Mr. and Mrs. Citizen,
there were more natural attributes
in the country to give you sources
of diversion. Now, all we have in
our towns are places to lie, stores
to purchase what we- want and a
hike of many miles before one can
even enjoy walking through the
woods. What can a child do in an
"asphalt jungle" such as our cities
today have become? Study this
matter carefully and just remem-
ber, this boy in question came from
a "good" family, and as far as we
know, had the right upbringing,
but he just put his energy in the
wrong direction. Don't ever forget,
it might be your child next. It
would be to your benefit to get
behind a swimming pool and any
other project that comes to light
for the benefit of our children and
for their recreation.

FISHING' and HUNTING'
Straight From A "Harper"
Fishing has been exceptionally
good at Lake Wimico for ten days.
Terry Hinote, Fred McLean and
C. L. Davis took three paper com-
pany officials Thursday and caught
eighteen bass in the morning,
which dressed eighteen pounds..
Herman Marshall and party
brought a bass in to be weighed,
which. tipped the scales at 6 lbs.
Carrol Warner and Mr. Mitchell
stopped in Tuesday with sixteen
bass on a string. They had camped
on Lake Wimico Monday, night.
Dick Spillers, Terry Hinote,
Johnnie Adams, T. C. Smith, Dan
Hatfield, Dr. A. L. Ward together
with many others have enjoyed the
catch of "the limit" of bass during
the past week.
Bream are biting in the Lake.
The water is getting warm and the
fish are beginning to bed. The lim-
it has been brought out by several
people this week.
Tom Maloney and son, Earl have
enjoyed fishing, bringing in the
limit several days this week.
The water is still muddy but re-
ports are coming in that some fish
are being caught at Dead Lakes.
Henry Stone told us Sunday that
the river is callingg fast at Willis
Amos Tindel, of Dothan fished
in Lake Wimico Saturday and was
well pleased with his trip,. ....
Len Cohen, Joe Kaseltzer, Meyer
Bloomberg, Joe Kaseltzer and
friends of Dothan, Ala., fished here
over the week end.
If you love mother nature's paint-
ings in the spring time, you should
take a boat trip to Lake Wimico
now. The trees are in full green
array, dotted here and there with
a flower, along the banks of the
canal as well as the lake.
Early in the morning or late in
the afternoon the shrubs and trees
along the banks of the Canal re-
flect their true natural appearance
