Of course the above invitation
does not apply to' telling us what

WHAT WILL IT BRING US?
It seems that everybody is wondering to
themselves and also out loud jusst what iaill
transpire i1 1954 in this old world. Life naga-
zine says it will be another big ''ar. Several
economists say it will be a big year and of
course, those inevitable pessimists are around
blowing their horn to the tune of bust, ruin and
such other grim fates for the peoples during the
coming year. We see another season of pros-
peritv during 1954.
Local merchants here and all over the na-
tion report that their sales were larger hi 1953
than at any other time in their history. Of course
the cost of their goods has gone up also, but
the volume of sales has offset this and in many
cases professional men, merchants, manufac-
turers, indeed, everybody has realized a larger
net profit than at any other year in history.
There are two-or things that we, personally,
would like to see come about in Port St. Joe
during the coming year; things that we sincerelY
think are needed for the continued safety of
One of these two things is a traffic light
placed at Fourth and Reid and Third and Reid.
It doesn't have to ball up traffic, a fast changing
light can be installed. At the present time no
accidents have occurred but the automobile
population is increasing each day in Port St.
Joe and the "near misses" are becoming closer
at these intersections. Then it is practically
impossible to go East and West at the intersec-
tion of Third and Reid. This condition was
formerly strictly a Friday afternoon and Satur-
day hazard but the two spots have grown until
it is dangerous to cross at any time of day.
The second improvement thaat we wo'onld
like to see come. to Port St. Joe is the installa-
tion of parking meters. The city has a man hired
at the present tijpe to mark tires and thereby
time parking on Reid Avenue to two hours. But,
fines from this source are not paying the mans
salary and practically no one parks on Reid any-
more who will be there over two hours. And
still the parking spaces are full all the time.
We are not suggesting parking meters as
a means to empty parking spaces on Reid but
it w\ou0l step up the turn over in empty spaces
giving more people an opportunity to park and
shop. Also it would eliminate the chronic "park
it a while and then move it" people who plague
the downtown street to a certain extent.
This cit is growing and its citizens and
their everyday habits must grow with it.
HOW STRONG ARE WE?
As a new year begins, it is the part'of wis-
dom for a nation, like a business, to review its
assets aind its liabilities.
On the credit side, the United States has
an unrivaled standard of living. Our men and
women enjoy wages and working conditions su-
perior to those existing anywhere else. The
tide of goods and services that flows endlessly
along the American production and distribution
line I -:'-.. the imagination. Materially speak-
ing, business, agriculture and labor arc doing
We have a political system which comes as
close to being responsive to the wishes of the
people as any one can conceive of. In the last
presidential election the people removed from
power a party which had been in control for
20 years and put another in its place. In some
future election the -party now in power will be
replaced. But no heads roll; no purges are
held; the losers are not liquidated. All are
free to air their views.
We are no longer actually at war, unsatis-
factory as the Korean situation is. If recent
reports are correct, our military strength and
that of Western Europe have shown remarkable
improvement. The chance of another world war
is less than it was.
So much for the credit side of the ledger.
