City Will Furnish
Work began this week on clear-
ing off the lot for the new City
Youth Center. The Center will be
located in the City Park along
Tenth Street across the street from
the Scout Hut.
The Youth Center building has
been the goal of an organization in
Port 'St. Joe for the past few years.
The youth of the city have been
meeting weekly for parties and
recreation in the Legion Building
and the St. James' Episcopal Parish
House. These quarters have become
inadequate to handle the crowds.
Last year, the City promised the
S-lAC house organization to pro-
vide quarters for their activities
as soon as possible and with the
drawing up of the City Budget in
the latter part of August, a sum
of money was put into the budget
to take care of this need.
The lot is being prepared for the
building by City labor. Due to the
fat that the city labor force is also
engaged in shifting utility lines in
the path of the new overpass now
fixing to get under way in construc-
tion, it will probably be two or
three weeks before the lot is entire-
ly ready for construction to begin.
Mayor J. L. Sharit told The Star
that the building would be built of
concrete block and have an oak
floor. He said that several mater-
ials agents have agreed to furnish
material at cost. Gunn Ready-Mix
Concrete Co., will furnish all con-
crete at actual cost and Wall Elec-
tric Co., will wire the building, .'c-
cording to the Mayor. Others who
wish to join in the community pro-
ject are welcome to do so, accord-
ing to Sharit.,
The City'will furnish the mater-
iale for the building and a block-
layer to put up the walls. The rest
of the construction will be by vol-
Mayor Sharit said that the STAC
House organization expressed a
willingness to recruit labor if the
city could furnish the materials. He
pointed out that this is a commun-
ity project and that all who are
interested in the youth of our city
are welcome to come out and drive
a nail or carry a block.
There is no immediate for labor,
but within the next two or three
weeks, a call for labor will go out,

Sixth Graders Give Impressions Of
Curriculum At Elementary School
The students in Mrs. ite's sixth
grade at the local elementary school
give you their interpretation of
their work this year,
In the fifth and sixth grades we
are divided up into arithmetic clas-
ses different from our regular
rooms. In the sixth grade Mr.
Barnes has the top group which is
studying division of fracitons. Mrs.
Roe has the middle group which is
studying mnultipli ,,T0ion of fractions.
Mrs. Fite has the low group in
which each person studies what he
needs the most. Betty Jo Smith
We have divided into three read-
ing groups in the sixth grade. Ws
are graded according to our ability
to read. Mrs. Roe has the hig!,.:-"
group which is reading from the
6th reader. Sometimes the reading
is done by the teacher, and other
times by the pupils. We must lis
ten and read. with understanding.
Mrs. Fite has the middle group
which is reviewing from a fiftrL
reader this first semester. Mi'.
Barnes has the lowest group who
began the year in a fourth reader,

ual growth. We realize through the
ability to read we learn of the
things that are taking place today
in world affairs.
In the sixth grade we are study-
ing mostly about ancient history
and geography. We have studied
about our earth and how it was
made ,and how things were formed.
We have also studied about how
early man lived and learned. We,
had films on that unit and our class
really enjoyed them. Now we are
studying about the. Middle East.
We have been listening to the news
about Israel and the trouble over-
there and since we have been study-
ing about Israel, Egypt, and all the
countries over there it has been
very interesting hearing about it on
the radio. Bonnie Houston
In spelling we do many different
things. Monday we get words out
of our 'spelling story. Tuesday we'
have to do an exercise, "Studying
Your Words". Wednesday we have
a trial test. Thursday we have the
final test. riday we write each word
that we misspell 25 times.
We have five weekly tests and
the sixth week the people that have
misspelled words take the sectional
review. If people made perfect pa-
pers all five weeks they get a spec-
ial priviledge. Last period they got
to help a second grade teacher,
Mrs. Dickens, during he time they
usually have spelling. She was a
sixth grade teacher last year.
In language the sixth grade has
been studying nouns lately. There
are plural and singular nouns, and'
common and proper nouns. We have
also studied this year punctuation
and capitalization. We have review-
ed how to write a sentence and how
to recognize one. We have also re-
viewed synonyms-what they are

H ERBIE McHENRY is a meek
blondish sort of a fellow. To
look at him wouldn't think he'd
be able to resist a persevering
petticoat sixty days. But Linda
Martin's been chasing him ever
since the Martin family moved
next door. She had scarcely un-
packed her jack-stones and bubble
gum when she spied Herbie. She
took one look and cried, "He's
After that it was Linda and
Herbie everywhere you went. At
first it was two pair of roller
skates on the Martin's front
porch. Then it was two sodas in
a booth at the Sweet Shoppe, two
matinee tickets, two tickets for
the senior hop!
At first I don't suppose Herbie
even suspected the duplicity. It
just seemed like a bit of good
fortune to him to' invariably be
invited by the Martin's family to
a picnic in the park, or a weekend
at their cabin up at the lake. And
Linda was always near by, her
short silky bangs the color of a
primrose in the moonlight, a
roguish smile upon her red lips.
But when Herbie did receive the
message he squared off for battle.
Slender, mildmannered Herbie
came from fighting stock. His
great great grandfather had been
a minute man in the revolution.
"Why don't you have a show-
down with her?" I suggested one
"And have her really tear into
me? Oh! No!" Herbie shook his
So Herbie went along not fight-
ing too hard. He invited her to
the spring dance. She was irresist-
ible in pink net and sequins. It
was bravery far above and beyond
the call_>f duty. But he came
home that night still a free man.
Did Linda give up? No! She
saw to it that they were invited
to the same parties. Even if
Herbie did stag it she stuck so
close to him all evening long thai
every one assumed that they were
One day we heard that Linds
was going to Philadelphia for the
summer, to visit her ,uncle. We
crowded around Herbie to conm
gratulate him-.. Maybe he had
weathered the stormr< after al!
But hardly was the summer over
before she was back, more beau.
tiful than ever. Also, with her was
a handsome black eyed stranger!
Immediately we received invi-
tations to a party. It was rumored
that this was to be a party to
announce Linda's engagement to
the handsome stranger.
Herbie and I were the first to
arrive. When Linda and the stran-
ger appeared a few moments
later Herbie took her out on the
porch overlooking the old rose
garden.- When they came back
Herbie had a kind of bewildered,
semi-conscious look upon his face.
Linda looked radiant, with victory
and happiness showing in her
eyes. At last everybody arrived
and she introduced the stranger as
her cousin and explained that
this was to have been a party
for him to meet all her friends
in town. But it had turned out to
be..an engagement party as well
and she smiled shyly at Herbie,
in a weak womanly fashion.
Later we fellows crowded
around Herbie to offer our con.
dolences. Herbie accepted them
gracefully. After all, he could be
proud of his resistance. He thought
he may have broken some kind
of an endurance record.
Privately he admitted every-
thing had gone black when Linda
walked into the room that evening
on the arm of her cousin. Sorme-
one suggested X)rescheduling the
bout, since he wasn't himself.
But Herbie declined. He had
fought a clean fight and had lost.
Besides, he admitted freely, he
did love her.
There are many fresh and exciting discoveries awaiting you in the
wonderful world of Autodynamics. But none is more exciting
than the exhilarating performance you'll experience behind the
wheel of a Swept-Wing Dodge.
This low-slung beauty takes off like a scalded cat, rips over hills
like a hungry cougar, whips past slow-moving traffic like a gun-
shy jackrabbit. At your command is a mighty new aircraft-type

And this Swept-Wing Dodge introduces such important advances
as Push-Button TorqueFlite that packs a 1-2 punch. Revolutionary
new Torsion-Aire that sweeps you along in a "Realm of Silence,"

SUDDEN THOUGHT ON THUG'.. D..
SIRK WILLIAMS, 1152 Govern-
ment Street, Mobile, Ala-
Dama, says he once faced a prob-
lm common to many parents: he
didn't get along very well with
Ais children. His oldest boy, six-
teen years old at the time he was
concerned with his problem, once
had been a very good friend, but
as the years went on he became
aloof, and confident of being able
to settle his own affairs.
Pointing out that a parent's ad-
monitions were only for the pur-
pose of preventing a child from
making' mistakes had no effect
His daughter, aged fifteen, was
fast adopting the theories of her
brother. However, they could con-
trol her through force rather more
easily than they could the boy,
even though this method aroused
bitter resentment on her part.
