through Monday, hundreds of eager shoppers
in the Port St. Joe area will find that all roads

In proclaiming the celebration, at least 17
merchants have reduced prices "to the bone"
on all manner of products to be ready for eager
customers from not only Port St. Joe but the
surrounding area as well.
In thd cooperative effort profits have been
thrown to the winds, and the bargain-conscious
buyer is king.

iBoating is now becoming the
rage in Port St. Joe with every-
body hitting the water with every-
thing from a water ski to a 35
Of course John Robert Smith's
latest addition to Port St. Joe's
boat population is now ancient his-
tory and rouses the envy of every
man in town.
Another boating adventure that
is not so well known is claimed
by Dr. Joe Hendrix and George
Doec and his family and George
and his Amy had gone across the
bay Sunday afternoon to shark
hole on an outing. J. R. Smith and
Bobby Bellows were already over
there water skiing. While there,
Doc's boat quit and wouldn't start
again. So John Robert piled all ex
cept Doc and George in his boat
and brought them with Bobby Bel-
lows saying he would go for help
to tow the boat in.
Doc and George drifted for hour
upon hour and finally after dark
they saw their rescuers searching
the bay for them. Some nice com-
fortable chairs were brought on
deck where they sat down and
watched the show of their rescue.
Along about midnight, Pat Shan-
non, Ed Ramsey and Bobby Bel-
lows (the rescuers) came upon the
two reclining gentlemen and towed
them to shore.
Both report the most peaceful
rest they have had in a long time.
Saints Win Two
To Stay On Top
By BOB ELLZEY
SAINTS 10, WEWA 6
The league leading St. Joe Saints
were guests of the Wewahitchka
Gators this past Thursday night.
Wewa played host in their recently
lighted field, and did a mighty fine
job by giving their local fans some
very good baseball, until Monk
Stevens the Saint's ace left handel
pitcher decided the Saints had
shown enough courtesy to the Ga-
tors and went about his pitching
duties, striking out batters as fast
as they would come up. Monk
struck out 14 men without showing
any respect to any one batter.
The Saints have been loaded this
year as far as heavy hitters go.
They have been able to collect the
hits at the right time, and managed
to come out on .top in five out of
six games so far .this season.
This victory over the Gators put
the Saints two full games out in
Wewahitchka started Jimmy Mc-
Daniel on the mound but had to be
relieved by Billy Dixon. McDaniel,
was credited with the loss. Wewa
has a very good team and had they
started as early as other teams in
the league practicing, they would

SMerchants participating in the event have
for the past several months made a special
effort to fortell what will be the items most
desired during the coming season, and have
placed their run of spring and summer merchan-
dise on the block for your benefit.
During the four-day sale, designed as a
thank-you gesture from merchants participating
these items will be offered to area residents
at ridiculously low prices.
Port St. Joe is fast becoming known as a
place to do business in at a fair and reasonable
price for top-notch merchandise. This Dollar
Day sale is another way of acquainting the
buying public with this fact.
Golden Harvest Drawing
In connection with this great bargain event
the local merchants are featuring the first of
their scheduled weekly Golden Harvest awards.
This idea of cash awards each and every Sat-
urday is another vehicle for your local mer-
chants to say "thank you" for past business.
The first award will be made Saturday after-
noon in front of Stones' Shop for Men at 3:OU
p.m. from a $250.00 jackpot. As much as $125.00
of this jackpot. The winner must be present

Enters Bill To Abolish
Local Gasoline Tax
May 29, 1957
I doubt if any previous session
of the Legislature has faced as
many problems or worked as long
hours as has this session. In ac-
complishment, I feel that this le-
gislature has set a record, although
I am concerned over the fact that
we have failed to hold a practical
line on the question of appropria-
tions. In the closing days of this
session, we are faced with approxi-
mately 700 million dollars in ap-
propriations for the next two years,
with an anticipated revenue of 570
million dollars. This means that
it will be necessary for us to -raise
an additional 130 million dollars by
taxation, or recall the Appropria-
tion Bill and lob off certain approp-
riations. I am unalterably opposed
to extending the sales tax to gro-
ceries and nmedicines and certainly
feel that the legislature can pro-
vide the necessary revenues with-
out resorting to taxing these abso-
I feel that we have passed the
most outstanding piece of legisla-
tion for public schools since the
passage of the Minimum Founda-
tion Program in the school teach-
er's salary increase bill. Although
the method of determining salary
increases will work a hardship on
many teachers in the State, I feel
that this legislation will accom-
plish the result desired by both
parents and teachers in the State.
It will provide a means whereby
we can attract teachers from oth-
er States to Florida and keep them
for a period of ten years or longer
and will prevent competition be-
tween counties for the better teach-
ers because, generally, a teacher
would suffer a loss in pay by leav-
ing the county or tItate under the
provisions of this bill. These were
the principal results desired in my
,contacts with both parents and
teachers in public meetings in Gulf
County. Had we amended the pro-
visions of this bill to help a few
teachers, which most certainly are
deserving of help, we would have
opened the door for further changes
which would have destroyed the ef-
fectiveness of the law.
I have introduced and passed a
bill to make the office of the Coun-
ty Prosecuting Attorney of Gulf
County an elective office so that
the people may determine this of-
fice by popular vote. The first Pro-
secuting Attorney under this Act
will be appointed by the Governor.
I have today passed a bill re-
pealing the one cent gasoline tax
imposed by the City of Port St.
Joe which has been in effect for
approximately ten years. This is
subject to a referendum vote at
the September City Election.

In Jeremiah 2:13, "For my people
have committed two evils; thev
have forsaken me the fountain of
living waters, and hewed them ou

figure to describe those who had
turned aside from his deep wells
of life-giving water and hewn out
shallow cisterms that caught nly
the superficial, surface rain-wate:.

He H can stubbornly and brashly
push on in the face of certain un-
doing. But to compensate for that
lost serenity and sense of security
he will probably come to hate cer-
tain things and certain people.
Esau, being the firstborn, was
responsible to posterity to head up
the family and the contemporary
generation. He took this responsi-
bility entirely too lightly, and, like
many today, did not feel impelled
to exert himself for the sake of
others. How sad it is for people to
feel so indifferent to the respon.
sibilities of life.
Because of this instability and
indifference, Almighty God settled
upon the younger of the two bro-
thers the responsibility of becom-
ing the father of the nation Israel.
He also settled on him the privil
ledge of being the channel through
which would come the promised
We. as individuals and as a na-
tion have a heritage and a birth-
right that we just must not despise
or take lightly. To do so will sure-
ly invite disaster.

The Girls' Auxiliary of the First

Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in the rec-

The theme of the banquet was
"Hitch Your Wagon To A Star"

white for purity and gold for sin-
The center piece on the table
was a wagon filled with white flow-
ers. Attached to the wagon was
yellow streamers going up to the
ceiling to a large star.
The star stands for star ideals
which are, abiding in Him through

ing to the fire house to man the

Remember that two pieces of
equipment will be rolling to -the
fire scene very shortly after the
whistle blows, and many automo-
biles with firemen will be close
behind the fire equipment.
If you must go to the scene of
the fire, park at least a block away
from the fire. The equipment may
have to be moved from the original
position it was placed and will
need room in order to get in the
proper place to best fight the fire.
Automobiles have at times in the
past crowded the fire truck so close
that it could not be moved. We
might point out that parking so
close to a fire could very easily
put your automobile in danger too.
Never run over any fire hose
that has been placed into the road
with an automobile. The hose is to
supply a water supply to the fire
pumper. This hose is under pres-
sure from 50 to 150 pounds per
square inch. It will burst if it is
run over. This will shut off the
water supply to the pumper and
may endanger *the life of a n in
inside a house depending on his
water supply to keep the heat, fire
and smoke away from him.

The city of Port St. Joe has fur-
nished at your disposal three of
the very finest pieces of fire fight-
ingequipment available. Each piece
has a special purpose and when us-
ed properly saves you money in
the long run. This equipment is
manned by men who are your neigh-
bors, men who have been trained
to use-every piece of the fire fight-
ing equipment-men who have de-
cided they are willing to do a part
in having a fire safe community.
They answer any fire alarm that is
blown, night or 'day. In order that
this equipment and the firemen
may do the job, there are a few
simple rules that should be obser-
Due S. S. Payments
,If a severe disability prevents you
from 'doing any kind of work, you
may be able to get Social Security
benefits every month as a result
of a 1'956 change in the social se-
curity law, John V. Carey, district
manager of the Panama City social
security office, said this week. Dis-
ability benefits will be paid be-
ginning with a- payment for this
July to disabled people who are be-
tween the ages of 50 and 65 and
who can meet the necessary work
and medical requirements.
To meet the work requirements,
Carey added, the disabled person
must have worked in Social Secur-
lay employment for five years dur-
ing the ten years before his disab-
ility began. In addition It is also
necessary that he have worked one
and one-half years or more in the
three-year period immediately be-
fore the disability occurred.
The disability can be due to phy-
sical or mental causes but it must
be a disability that can be deter-
mined by medical evidence, Carey
continued. The individual's disa-
bility must be so severe that he is
unable to engage in any gainful ac-
tivity now or in the foreseeable fu-
ture, and the disabled individual
must submit the medical evidence
to be considered. Monthly payments
under the disability insurance pro-
gram will not be due until early Au-
gust of this year, but the applica-
tion for benefits should be filed
Any disabled individual who be-
lieves he meets the necessary re-
quirements and who has been dis
abled for more than six months,
should contact the nearest social
security office before the June 30,
deadline. The address of the social
security office for this area is 522
Mercer Avenue, Panama City.
