Well, we are a bachelor no
more. The family is at home once
more. We went up over the holi-
day week end and braved the
traffic to bring them back home. --
And if anybody should happen R
to ask you, it is hot up the coun-
Mark Tomlinson said "I'm
glad you don't have a picture of,
me in the water", when we were
getting the details of his near
tragedy on the fourth in the ac-
companying column. He said he
lost just a wee mite of his dig-:
nity while trying to hang on to
his overturned boat while help
arrived in the form of C. W.
Long and Arnold Daniell.
This Fourth was undoubtedly
the most celebrated in many
years. We don't think the beach-
es here have ever been so popu-
lated by "relaxers". People were
going everywhere to enjoy them-
selves, and as a rule were care-
ful in so doing.
Out of 12 deaths in the State,
we had two of them right here
in Port St. Joe. That isn't good.
The drowning was avoidable
but the traffic accident is du-'
bious. We have heard, though
not officially, that the State Road
Department has accepted the
White City Road but that it
will be reworked. It should be.
That road has caused two deaths
of Port St. Joe people and about
10 accidents due to its slickness
and wavy condition.
We also heard that the road
had been built to specifications,
which somehow eliminated the
binding coat of asphalt to the
old road and this causes the pav-
ing to slip off the old base and
make the road rough and wavy.
As we say, we heard all this
and you can hear anything.
At any rate, it shluuAd be cor-
rected, and soon, before it
causes additional sorrow.
You have probably heard of
the dredging of the Apalachi-
cola River and that this might
cause the Chipola cut-off to
drop in water level and maybe
shut off the new water supply to
the mill and to the City. We
talked to a Paper Company of-
ficial about this and he told us
that the Company knew that the
dredging operation was going to
possibly be carried out even be-
fore the canal was dug. He also
said that the people of Port St.
Joe need never fear about their
water supply. In his own words,
"The Company isn't going to dig
an 18-mile canal only to have a
dredging operation make it use-
less. There is plenty of water
there and we will continue to
'So rest assured that we will
continue to have our good water.
It is a pleasure to drink good
iced tea after so long. The good
water is a god-send. We might
say that the State Board of
Health has officially told the
City of Port St. Joe that they
are fortunate to have so good a
supply. According to them, we
are one of a very few cities in
the State that has even good wa-
ter and on top of all that soft
Will Be Dedicated Fri.

On Saturday, July 2 the Wewa-

We have examples today of the selfishness
and the turtle-like speed of our State Govern-
ment. For a full session and for practically two
extra months, the Tallahassce wonders have tried
to work out a State Reapportionment. We per-
sonally hadn't thought ,much about the time
that has been expended to make these reappor-
tionment changes in our 38 Senatorial Districts.
Sunday we saw just how slow they were.
Did you know that it took the Continental
Congress just slightly over 11 days to draw up
the Bill of Rights and lay the ground work of
the Constitulion which has stood strong for the
past 180 years? Just 11 days to draw up a docu-
ment which has shook the world ever since.
Of course, we must look at the fact that the
men of that Continental Congress had only the
good of the Country at heart. We had no
thought among that group of Senators about to
lose a seat or maybe his state fixing to lose some
of its power for the good of the Nation. Nei-
ther did that gathering cost the people of this
Nation in the excess of $5,000.00 a day.
We will admit all too readily that there were
disagreements at the Continental meeting just
as there are in the present disagreement in our
State of Florida. But these men were "big"
enough to let petty differences pass by and
strive toward making the Country stand for,
freedom the world over. They realized what
the Florida Legislature must realize before a
Reapportionment Measure is passed and that is
that everyone cannot have their own way.
The Tallahassee Democrat came out in edi-
torial recently and scalded the Legislators by
declaring that the recent Boys' State delegates
by WIN PENDLETON
A JOB TO DO-Congressian
Dante Fascell has been appointed
to one committee that all news-
men are watching with unusual in-
terest. It is a subcommittee of the
Covernmen Operations Committee.
And the members are to look into
charges that Government agencies
have denied or withheld informa-
tion from the press. That's true, as
every Washington newsman knows.
And under the Republicans, the sit-
uation is getting worse. Many facts
that the public should have'are be-
ing hidden and buried within he
files and desks of official Wash-
ington. Favorite dodge of the bu-
reaucrats who want to hide mis-
takes or keep from being embar-
rassed by the truth, is to use the
words 'confidential" with the impli-
cation that" national security is in-
volved. Funniest experience we've
had was trying to get Vice-President
Nixon's home street address. We
called his office, told them who
we were, and asked for the infor-
mation. They refused to tell us.
We reminded them that we knew
that the President lived at 1600.
Pennsylvania Avenue, but that we
just couldn't find the Vice-Pre-si-
dent's address. His office said that
was "confidential" information and
they were not permitted to give it
out. Later, after we had called a
half dozen people with no results
-our Gladys suggested that I look
in the Congressional Directory-a
public document-a copy on my
desk. There was the address-4S01
Tilden St. I felt a little stupid about
that time. But the point is that pub-
lic officials here are refusing to
give information to the public-no
matter what. More power to Fas-
LO, THE POOR INDIAN-Does
all of South Florida belong to the
Indians? It seems that after the
Indian War, General McComb, then
Chief of Staff, went to Florida and
made a treaty with the indians as-
signing them the lands south of a
line from Charlotte Harbor across
the state to what is now Martin
County. This "McComb Treaty"
was regarded by almost everybody
as a temporary arrangement. But
Morton Silver, a Miami attorney,
claims it wasn't temporary-that
it is still in effect. Certain Semi-
nole Indians that he represents
(laim they own all of the land in
Florida south of that old line-with
the exception (for some reason) of
Miami Beach. Last week, these
problems were discussed at a lun-
cheon in the Capitol. Present were

DO YOUR SHOES HURT?
We are much attracted to the theory of
Morton Holman, who writes a column for the
Bay County Herald, of Richmond, Mo.
"Half the ills of the world would be cured,"
' rites r. Holman, "if people didn't have to wear
This comment, he explains, was inspired by
a rival columnist on the Richmond News who
had announced earlier that "most of the ills of
the world would be cured if some device could
be invented to limit a woman's telephone con-
servation to seven minutes".
Mr. Holman favors his own solution very
frankly on the basis that it seems more attainable
than the curtailment of feminine conversation
- on the phone or elsewhere. He further sug-
gests that ". the person who gets impatient
with women talldng over the telephone probably
has a tight pair of'shoes on".
He goes on to speak nostalgically of a "hea-
ven" he discovered on his recent vacation. "I
have not found a place where I could discard
the shoes and all the cares that go with a paid
of shoes until we visited the Indiana State Park
north of Chesterton, Ind. This is a sand dune
park, and the sand there is out of this world. It
had rained a lot the day before and the
sand was wet and cool. In lots of spots we'd
sink into the sand above our ankles. Then
we'd find a stretch where the sun was shining
and the contrast just made that old ingrowing
toe-nail feel ashamed of itself for all the misery
it has caused us all of these years.
"Instead of buying an air conditioner and
a big fan during the hot summer weather," con-
cludes Mr. Holman, "just pull off your shoes,
sick your feet in a tub .of ice-water and you'll
be cool for the rest of the day if you keep
your feet in the tub ."
But right there as all will recognize is
the catch. For an editor, keeping cool is still
largely a matter of keeping out of hot water -
shoes or no shoes!

Puff .. it's a hat! This wonderful sun hat is the handiest fashion
item introduced in many a summer and, according to fashion fore-
casters, will be a vacation headliner. It inflates with a "puff" and de.
plates back to purse size in a jiffy. Designed to protect milady from the
,scorching sun at the seashore, in the garden, in the mountains or
just plain walking down city streets, the puff hat comes in one size,
to fit every feminine head. '
I It is really a picture hat that compactly fits a purse, can be
slipped out at a moment's notice and inflated by blowing gently into
a tiny-valve until hat assumes full size as shown by model in picture.
Wheni'it has reached full-brimmed proportions-this takes a few
seconds and little breath-you bend the valve over, and tuck it out'
of sight into a slit. To deflate merae~,.raoye plug, let out air and
fold into a small package. .
This amazing, new item comes in eight high-fashion, sunfast
colors-four prints and four solids-is non-inflammable, scuff resist-j
ant and can be purchased in variety and drug stores ev .rywhere.

One of the changes in the law
made it possible for the first time
for the survivors of some workers
ings in figuring the worker's aver-
age monthly wage. This has the
effect of increasing the average
earnings, from which the monthly
payments are figured.
Other improvements in the law
did not go into effect until the first
day of 1955; although these changes
had not affected the payments that
were being made at the end of
1954, they will contribute further

went into effect on the first of he
year, one changes the rules for re-

benefits before 19515, and another

able distribution or vaccine to ail ida State Representative for the
groups. The committee said that Foundation, commented that Flori-
children between the ages of 5 and day's March of Dimes total of $1,125,-
9 would have first consideration 000, represented an increase of
under the plan. more than $52,000 over the 1954
The Florida 'State Board of total. The Foundation feels that
Health estimates that there are ap-
proximately 340,000 children in this
age group. Of that number about
15,000 have had their first and sec-
ond vaccine shots.
Either one's life is worth living
well-and taking some trouble
about daily-or else not at all.
Good health is about all I envy,
this increase was largely achieved
through the energetic leadership of
Dr. Nance who as State Chairman
devoted four months of intensive
effort to the program.
"Dr. Nance's dedicated efforts
which involved 2500 miles of travel
in the State of Florida and per-
sonal contact with most of the cam-
paign leaders in the 67 counties
paid rich dividends", Mr. Jeffries
In accepting the award, Dr.
Nance stated that the support given
the 1955 March of Dimes was a
direct reflection of the esteem
which the people of the State of
Florida hold for the Foundation for
its many direct services to Florida
residents. Dr. Nance expressed
confidence that the people of Flor-
ida would continue to generously
support the March of Dimes until
polio is defeated.
