Everytime we come up with a
little article about what the
County is going to do in their
Salk Vaccine program the na-
tional scope of the vaccination
program always changes on
Wednesday night just as we are
putting the paper into the mail
We read a piece the other day
that stated that those children
that had contracted polio after
being vaccinated were far less
than the 1 per cent that the vac-
cine was supposed to lack from
being 100 per cent effective, ac-
cording to the number vaccinat-

It looks like Gulf County is
going to grow what with the em-
ng a0aexion of Mexico
Beach to our borders. This will
be a big factor in advertising
Gulf county as the place to go
for that summer vacation what
with a bigger stretch of some of
Florida's best beach property
and our already famous fresh
water fishing lakes and streams.
Your editor is like every other
human. He likes to see people
believe like he does. Take for
instance Congressman Bob Sikes.
He along with your editor be-
lives that for these past years
that the bulk of the money that
our government insisted on send-
ing abroad should be going to
our neighbor South America and
practicing that old saying that
"Charity begins at home". But
we believe that "charity" spent
south of the border would be in
more reality the "loan" that is be-
ing sent abroad. A loan is paid
S Now Sikes comes along and
takes another strike at the world
today. In Wednesday's paper he
declares that Russia lured us
into this position of supporting
the world to get our bank ac-
count in a favorable condition
(for them) to wage a world
economic warfare. Sikes says
that Russia is girding herself and
her slave labor to flood the mar-
ket with cheap goods that our
nation now manufactures and
sells abroad. Without a world
market our economic situation
would be sad -to say the least.
Something is going to have
to be done about the tarrif sit-
uation to remedy this predica-
ment before it happens. Far-
mers have now stacked up loads
of products because of the lack
of a world market and the same
can happen to our manufactur-
ing giant and then it would be
back to the bread line.

The move to include the Mexico
Beach area in Gulf County grew
by leaps and bounds Tuesday in
actions taken in the State Senate
and House of Representatives.
A bill to slice the Mexico Beach
area from Bay County and add it
to Gulf was introduced in the
House by Rep. Cecil Costin of Gulf
The measure was immediately
sent to the County and Municipal
government Committee of which
Costin is chairman and was expect-
ed to come out of that committee
late yesterday evening. According
to Costin, the bill is slated to come
before the House of Representa-
tives today for action.

THEN AND NOW ... THE POPPY
Long before the first World War, the poppy
had become indelibly imprinted on the minds of
Europeans as a flower of significance.
Anciently, the red poppy symbolized death,
and by the ancient Romans was dedicated to
Somnus, the deity of sleep.
In more modern times, in western Europe
where the poppy grows wild, battlefields fur-
aished rich soil not only for its flourishing but
for the rise of all kinds of superstitions concern-
During the first World War, history repeated
itself, and blood again flowed in Flanders Fields.
Soon the poppies forced their way through the
battle-torn earth into the sunlight. The poppy
was the one touch of beauty which survived
amid the hideous destruction of war. The sol-
diers of all nations came to look upon it as the
living symbol of the sacrifices of their fallen
Even before the men had returned from
the war, the perfect little poem of Colonel John
McCrae had winged its way around the world,
scarlet poppy covered the earth where many ot
them fell. But wherever they fell, on battlefields
all over the world, the poppy is their memorial
flower and is worn in their honor, as it is in honor
of those who gave their lives in the Korean War,
halfway around the world from Flanders Fields.
The benefits of the American Legion Auxil-
iary's memorial poppy reach out in many direc-
tions, bringing help and hope into lives blighted
by war. Veterans in the hospitals and workrooms
who make the poppies for our Auxiliary are
given beneficial employment which enables
them to contribute to the support of their famil-
ies or to accumulate a small stake for the time
when they must face the fight to win back a
place in the economic life of the country. Oth-
er disabled veterans and needy children of vet-
erans benefit fro mthe Auxiliary/ rehabilitation
and child welfare activities financed by Poppy
On Poppy Day, as we place memorial flow-
ers ove rthe hearts of millions of our citizens and
enshrine the memory of the great sacrifice made
for our country by our war dead, we will con-
tinue to "Keep the Faith" with those who lie in

'Five of the questions the public
most frequently asks about gasoline
and the nation's oil industry were
answered this week in a statement
by J. Lama rMliler of the Gulf
County Oil Industry Information
Committee. The questions deal with
what determines gasoline prices,
why three are so many brands of
gasoline, monopoly charges, the fu-
ture of oil as affected by atomic
energy, 'and "myths about a 100-
"Local competition determines
gasoline prices," said Mr. Miller.
"The individual dealer's gasoline
prices tend to stabilize at a point
where margin of profit and volume
of sales strike the most favorable
balance." He pointed out that this
process and the fluidity of consum-
er buying habits produce small but
distinct variations in local and
nation-wide gasoline prices. "In the
Gulf County area," he said, "there
is a price spread of four cents a
gallon. Prices may vary up to
As to whether the many brands
of gasoline are "all the same," Mil-
ler said, "Definitely not. Each com-
pany makes many different gaso-
"If all gasolines were the same,
it would be necessary to develop
variations. Otherwise, it would be
impossible for each driver to get
good performance, as he now can,
from his own make and model of
engine, anywhere, under any con-
dlitions, in any weather."
On the question of monopoly, Mr.
Miller pointed out that hetre are
some 42,000 oil companies in this
country, plus about 200,000 service
stations operated iby some 190,000
separate and competing concerns.
He asserted that monopoly "could
never have built today's American
"During the past '25 years," he
said, "oil companies have increased
production by 158 per cent, and
have developed literally hundreds
of new and (better products. The
price of their most widely used
product, gasoline, is only 7.3 per
cent higher (except for taxes) than
it was in 1925. And the power this
gasoline delivers is 50 per cent
eight cents per gallon nation-wide, higher than it was in 1925. And the
This is to call your attention to the fact that our
new Super Market and Standard Oil Service Station,
will open on May 27, at 7:00 a.m. and remain open
until 9:00 p.m. It is located on Highway 98, on
corner opposite Highland View Elementary School.
Our store is arranged in an up-to-date manner
which permtis customers to browse around to their
heart's content. Everything will be priced right and
in these days, when the cost of living is high, we feel
customers will welcome lower prices.
There will be free ice cream to all children ac-
companied by parents on opening date.
At this time we want to say a very warm and
sincere "Thank You" to every one of you, old custo-
mers and new. Looking forward to greeting you on
the opening date and assuring you of the most care-
ful, faithful, service in our new store.

If you were brought under social
security by the 1954 ainendments,
you should first of all find out
just what this -means to you and
your family, Carey pointed out.
Many people do not realize that
the social security law provides
basic insurance protection to the
worker and his family In old age
retirement and to the worker's fam-
ily ,at his death, regardless of age
Many people past 65 do not realize
that the payments can start at age
72 even though they have not re-
tired. Further, it should -be emiha-
sized that no benefits are ever paid
until a claim is filed for them.
Your second duty is to make sure
you understand old age and survi-
vors insurance so that you can pro-
tect your rights under 'social. se-
curity. If you are an employee, you
are not doing all 'that you could to
protect your rights unless you have
a social security account number
card, have shown it to -y0 r0 -
ployer and made sure he copied
your name and number correctly,
have shown it to your family and
told them to contact the social se-
curity office in the event of your
death, 'and finally check your so- '
cial security record at least every
3 years to be sure that it is correct.
If you are self-employed, your
duties .are similar. You, too, must
obtain a social security account

year. Finally, you must file such
a tax return with the District Di-
rector of Internal Revenue and pay
the social security tax.
If you do not perform these du-
ties as you should, Carey continued,
you run the risk of losing your so-
cial security payments or getting
less than you should.

It's a 200-horsepower performer-
Most powerful at its price!
As the only car with the Strato-
Streak V-8, Pontiac has a big per-
formance advantage. This newest
and most efficient V-8 enables
Pontiac to provide more power than
any car has ever delivered at Pontiac's
price-a full 200 horsepower with
the four-barrel carburetor, an extra
cost option; 180 H.P. is standard.
It's a future-fashioned beauty-
Most distinctive at any price!
Style-conscious motorists turn to
Pontiac for true mode-of-tomorrow
design, beautifully different from
any other car on the road. Exclusive
Vogue Two-Tone styling, Twin-
Streaked hood and low, rakish lines

remain a prideful possession for many
years to come.
Its a king-size luxury car-
Bigest at its price!
Pontiac is a big, roomy car. Here it

longer than some models in the top

For quality of fabrics, conveniences
and appointments, Pontiac compares
with the costliest cars.
It's America's topmost value-
Greatest buy of any year!

of all time for this simple reason:
America agrees-when you can get
the size, power, beauty and luxury
you want at Pontiac's easy price,
that's the place to put your money.
