On May 10
Gulf County's share of the Salk
vaccine for polio -arrived this week
and was injected almost immediate-
ly into 373 children in Port St. Joe.
The vaccine arrived here Mon-
day around noon and was turned
over to the Health'Department by
Joseph A. Mira, Chairman Gulf
County Chapter, National Founda-
tion for Infantile Paralysis. The
vaccine 'was furnished free of
charge by the foundation.
'Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. the
innoculations were started with the
first grade in the Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary .school. By mid-afternoon
the entire Port St. Joe area of first
and second graders had been inoc-
There were 416 registered in the
St. Joe area to be inoculated but
4.3 of the students were absent.
The second in the three shot series
will be given on May 10. The third
shot will follow in approximately
seven months and must be paid or
by the parents.
The shot was painless except
for a slight needle prick and the
children bore up well under the
ordeal. One little first grade boy
fainted at the sight of the needle
but as a whole' the' operation went
off smoothly.' /
Shots were given by Mrs. Ruth
Clate, County Health Nurse.
Absentee shots were finished up
The Salk vaccine will be avail-
able in the city the latter part of
this week for those wishing to pur-
chase shots for their children. The
cost for each shot will be approxi-
mately $4.50, according to Mrs.

kind of organization at which the
citizens of Port St. Joe may point
with pardonable pride. The past
record of our school band has not
been at this level of efficiency.
Mainly Ibecause of inferior instru-
mental equipment, low morale
among band students and citizens,
and poor band organization. At the
present time, many of these ill's
have either been completely eradi-
cated or else they are in the pro-
cess of being cured. Much new
equipment has been added, morale
is at a high level, and the citizens
of our community are up in arms
and ready to support their band to
the limit. Let's all join in and create
one of the finer bandsof our part
of the state.

and are easy to keep clean.

ABOUT THOSE "DRIVES"
So you don't believe in contributing to any
or part of the "drives" that are carried on each
year. "There are too many of them and they
only divide the money up .among themselves"
you say. "The money is used in the wrong way"
you say. And some of you do say just those
Surely the advent of the polio vaccine will
do away with some of this sort of talk.
All of these drives use up a lot of money.
Sometimes it might seem that the pessimistic

a scientist working to find a cure stumbles on
the right thing and there you are. Notice we
said "stumbles" because that is just what hap-

an identifying germ and that the germ causes
the sickness. But what will kill the germ and
better yet keep -the germ from forming in a
body. We'll use as a facsimile, the paper mill.
We know that the mill takes in wood at one end
and puts out paper at the other. But if we did

Most folks are so concerned with
their own bills that they give little
heed to bills introduced in the Con-
gress or Legislature that vitally
affect their interests.
However, the prosperity and wel-
fare of all of us depends on the
passage of wise and intelligent
legislation designed to protect our
Interest, and right now one of the
most Important issues concerned
with the welfare of Florida is com-
ing up for Congressional considera-
One of Florida's foremost indus-
we would still be in the dark. And if the pro.
cess of making paper from wood had never
been invented just how would you go about
it? It's the same thing. You know what you
want, but you don't know what will do the job
that you want done. There are many items in
this world to explore before the right agent is
found. Exploration of this kind and experiments
of this kind take money, much of which is just
wasted in that the experiments tried simply do
not work still the search must go on.
The "drives" serve a purpose and don't you
forget it. And let the discovery of the polio
vaccine be heartening and the foreteller of finer
things to come in the combatting of other di-
seases such as tuberculosis, cancer, muscular
dystrophy and other diseases that cripple and
maim our people.

Following the war, in an effort
to help Cuba, Puerto Rico and oth-
er offshore sugar growing areas,
our government established a very
strict quota system that limited the
acreage domestic growers might
plant and also controls the amount
of sugar that may be sold.
Our Florida sugar growers and
producers have adhered strictly to
this quota regulation, but because
we practice better farming methods
and have developed more modern
techniques we are able to produce
more sugar from the allotted acre-
age than the government estimated
we could. Under the present laws
this increased production cannot be
sold and must be stored until the

the seriousness of the present sit-

FACTS PROVE IT!
GET THE FACTS ON "ALL 3" LOW-PRICE CARS
AND YOU'LL HAVE PROOF PLYMOUTH IS FIRST:
FIRST IN SIZE-By actual measure-
ment, the 1955 Plymouth is the longest car
of the low-price 3. (It's even bigger than
some medium-price cars.) Plymouth is
truly a big car ... 17 feet long!
FIRST IN ROOMINESS -Plymouth is
also the biggest car inside, with the great-
est hip room and leg room. More comfort
for you! And Plymouth's trunk, by far
the largest in its field, lets you pack
FIRST IN VISIBILITY-Compariso-n
proves that Plymouth's glamorous new
Full-View windshield-with cornerposts
swept back both top and bottom-gives
you the greatest visibility of "all 3."
FIRST IN BEAUTY-Compare styling
and see why Charm, a leading fashion
magazine, chose Plymouth "Beauty Buy of
the Year." Plymouth's long, sleek Forward
Look wins over the hand-me-down styl-
ing of the "other 2."
FIRST IN ECONOMY-Smoothest and
thriftiest engine of all! That's Plymouth's
fast-stepping new 6-cylinder PowerFlow
117. Its Chrome-Sealed Action gives you
extra thousands of trouble-free miles.
FIRST IN COMFORT-Plymouth offers
you the most comfortable ride you ever
experienced in a low-price car. Only the
biggest car In the lowest-price field can
give you true big-car riding comfort.
FIRST IN EXTRA VALUE-Plymouth
gives you many extra-value features that
the "other 2" low-price cars don't have.
Come in today and let us show you why
Plymouth is first for value!
Why pay up to $500 more
for a car
smaller than Plymouth?
Don't be fooled by the claims of
so-called medium-price cars that they
cost practically the same as Plymouth.
When you compare price tags you'll
find that, model for model, Plymouth p
sells for much, much less than medium-
price cars, and gives you more car for I
your money! j

The above procedure does not apply if you wish lo dial
a telephone on the same line that you are on. How to dial
such a telephone is explained in instructions "How, To D'

,Failtre to Thin Out Row
Y Is Nc. 1 Garden Error
-. ..,.t_.: FA vC' ....- .
*It hurts to destroy your plants but ruthless thinning is necessary
for a good yield.
No. 1 enemy of beginners'
vegetable gardens is .crowding.
SThis is due to failure to thin out
the seedlings so that each re-
inaining plant has sufficient
room to develop properly.
Failure ,to thin out 'is often due
to emotional -resistance on the
part of the gardener who cannot
bring himself to destroy the
precious seedling plants which
#have brownn from the seed which
nore often she) has sown.
i with high-germinating
s it is advisable to sow
nore than you will have room
.'to mature; because accidents
.are always possible which will
destroy some plants; and va-
cancies in a row are difficult
. ,to fill.
Seeds that germinate slowly,
such as carrots,, parsley, and
parsnips, should be sown more
* 'thickly than others because the
seedlings are feeble, and the
f rce- of many acting together
-s break through the soil and
g the sprouts to the surface.
e late Liberty H. Bailey,
n of horticultural teachers,
dressed this opinion: "Thin-
g is -a process of selection,
'he best are allowed to re-
he best are greater
dener leaves one
ten, rather than
'ual process, bh-
.ant are la -
e, and conti
ing until they reach at least
balf-size. This keeps spare
plants available during the early
weeks, when accidents are most
likely to destroy some.
At first, plants of row crops
may be thinned out to, stand one
inch apart; which will insure, to
each, room to develop without
entangling roots with a neigh-
bor. As they grow, alternate
plants should be removed, and
so on until the optimum spac-
ing is achieved. Many of the
excess root and leaf plants can
be used on the table.
When carrots are sown thinly,
thinning may be left until some
are large enough to. use.
It is the half-grown carrots
that are most delicious, and the
growth is so much more in
length than in the diameter of
the root that the thinning proc-
ess does not disturb .the others
Turnips do not grow well if
crowded. If the young plants are
pulled up so they stand 4 inches
apart in the row, in a remark-
ably quick time they will be
large enough to use.
Beets are more easily handled
than turnips when they are 'a
little larger, and one should not
fail to try a dish of beet tops
with the tiny roots just beginning
to form. It is a delicious intro-
duction to the garden menu.
The beets which are left in the
'rd should be spaced 2 inches

I also introduced a proposed con-
stitutional amendment to be sub-
mitted to the people providing
that no sales or use tax shall ever
be enacted in the State of Florida
in excess of 3% and that food and
food products to be exempt per-
petually from any such tax. I feel
certain that the people of Florida
will vote favorably on this amend-
inent if it is passed since it will
have the effect of providing that
they will not be taxed in excess of
3% on any sales tax levied in the
future 'by the Legislature. I intend
to propose an amendment to this
bill in the Committee to provide
that medicine also be exempted
perpetually from any sales tax.

privileged children. I feel certain
that this will pass both houses im-
mediately when it reaches the
