FINALLY, A CEMETERY
When we lived in Port St. Joe some few
years ago, we,remember that practically every
organization in town had a "cemetery commit-
tee" for the purpose of securing a cemetery for
Port St. Joe. All these committees would func-
tion for a while and then die for one cause or
another. As the city grew and grew and more
and more families settled here permanently,
the need became practically mandatory for a
cemetery for the city.
Upon our return to Port St. Joe as editor
of The Star we were approached by several peo-
ple who urged us to advocate the foundation of
a cemetery here. We advocated in these col-
umns that the City establish a cemetery here'
and guarantee its upkeep. This week,' the City
fathers completed this task that the different
organizations had been working on for years.
Mayor Jake Belin and Commissioners, I. C.
Nedley, Watson Smith, Frank Chandler and
Clifford Tharpe met together in special sessions
and planned a cemetery for the city of Port St.
Joe. They drew up a resolution for the County
Representative, Cecil G. Costin, who is also
City Attorney to present to the Legislature to
provide the city with powers to allocate funds
from moneys already coming into the city cof-
fers, to buy, beautify and maintain property
for this purpose.
The cemetery will not become a reality un-
til an election is held in Port St. Joe to see if the
people of Port St. Joe want the cemetery, which
by the way, will mean no extra tax on the resi-
We are not taking credit for this achieve-
ment. We are throwing the spotlight on our
Mayor and Commissioners who put in a few
extra hours to iron all the details out for this
venture. We especially commend the City dads
for finding the money to carry on this better-
ment of our community without raising one tax.
As you probably know, the city operates on as
close a budget as is possible and thereby holds
taxes down to a minimum. This is no easy feat,
to draw $12,000 out of thin air on an already
thin budget for this purpose.
The City plans to set aside money obtained
from the sale of cemetery lots for the future
maintenance of the edifice. This, we think, is
the best use the money could possibly be put
We would suggest that if you happen to
meet one of the commissioners or the mayor in
the next few days, you should stop him and
shake his hand and say, "Well done". and offer
a word of encouragement for an otherwise thank-

Last week was a doozy. Monday
afternoon we developed a beauti-
ful toothache. Monday night, no
sleep, Tuesday, more toothache,
Tuesday night, no sleep, Wednes-
.day, still that same toothache. By
Wednesday noon we were convinc-
ed we had to bear the sacrifice of
having this offending molar ex-
tracted in order to get any work
done. We gave our friend, Dr.
King a buzz and he said just trot
right over and we'll take care of
that tooth in jig time. That's
what he said. Doc said, "Now you
just relax, I'm not going to hurt
you 'cause if I do, it will be all
over that paper and my business
will be RUINED". He gently laid
that long wicked-looking needle
in our mouth and looked for a
likely looking spot to plunge it in
and then withdrew it. We queried
the Doc as to whether he was go-
ing to give us that shot and put
the jaw to sleep. "Man", says Doc,
"You already HAD that needle".
We didn't even feel it!
SDoc took a gander down our
mouth and said, "I'm going to have
to fill the tooth next to 'the one to
be pulled." We asked him to just
let it go til we had more time,
Charlie Garraway dropped us a
note the first of this week and
said he is once more riding in a
General Motors product. He must
htve found a buyer for that "out-

Charlie and Otto Anderson sit
side by side at Rotary Club. One
will say, "Now your company
makes a. fine automobile, a won-
derful car, if' it just wasn't for
that hickey going out of kilter all
the time. Now my company has
a better procedure than any oth-
er. Of course yours is the next
best." It doesn't matter which one
starts the conversation, the gist
goes the same way.
Our wife presented us with a
little baby boy Monday night. That
makes two for us and three for
Uncle Sam. And they are all so
good looking too, and healthy as
they can be. About the time they
get big enough to help in the print

be off to the wars.
