HIGHWAY ON RE-PAVING LIST
Representative Cecil G. Costin, Jr., told The Star yester-
-day that he had been advised by State Road Board Represen-
tative James E. Nelson, that the road between Wewahitchka
and Cypress Creek will be included in the June, 1959 letting
of the State Road Board.
The resurfacing of this part of State Road 71 has been
long needed. Heavy traffic over the road by pulp wood trucks
coming to the St. Joe Paper Company mill and citizens travel-
ing back and forth from the County seat, makes State Road
71 probably the most used road by people of Gulf County.
The road has deteriorated to such condition, that State
Road Department repair crews are almost constantly at work
on the road to keep it passable.
SGulf County Commissioners have constantly been in-
6luding this stretch of road on the Primary paving needs to
the State Road Department, but have received rejection after
rejection on the job.

Annual pre-school registration
of first grade children will be
held at the Elementary school,

9:00 a.m: until 1:30 p.m.
This pre--registration serves
several purposes. The first is to
determine the number of teachers
who will be required, to teach the
first grade during the 1959-60
school year. The second purpose
is to avoid rushing on the open-
ing day of the school term.
Before a child can be enrolled

Gaskin said that it now appeared
that there would be no further ac-
tion taken on .the' issue until about
a week after the present .session of.
the Legislature adjourns.
The apparent reason for the \4e-
lay is to see what dispensation the
Legislature,. -will make with the.
Secondary Road Funds.
It was expected that the County
Board would be contacted Tuesday
to officially oppose Representative
Cecil G. Costia, Jr's. proposed bill
to provide Gulf County with an
Industrial Development Commis-
sion by Legislative act.
Clerk of the Circuit Court told
the Board that Costin had planned
to be present to defend his bill but
had telephoned that morning saying
that Legislative duties kept him in
Tallahassee. He asked that the
Board take no action until he
could appear and defend his bill.
There was no action taken by the
Board on the matter.
Representative Costin is to hold
a public hearing at the Port St. Joe
City Hall on this bill next Wednes-
day, May 20 at 7:30 p.m.
,In other business, Ralph Nance
appeared before the Board and
asked that Americus Avenue on
St. Joe Beach be repaired. He sta-
ted that .the street was torn up
by machinery paving an adjoining
road. Nance also asked that some
work be done on the drain ditclhon

Prayer of the Middle-Aged
LORD, THOU KNOWEST better than I know myself that
I am growing older and will some day be old.
Keep me from the fatal habit of thinking must say some-
thing op every subject and on every occasion. Release me from
craving to try to straighten out everybody's affairs. Make me
thoughtful but not moody; helpful but not bossy. With my vas'
wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all but thou knowest,
Lord, that I want a few friends in the end.
Keep my mind free from. the recital of endless details .
give me wings to get to the point. Seal my lips on my aches and
pains. They are increasing and love of rehearsing them is becom-
ing sweeter as the years go by I dare not ask for grace enough
to. enjoy, the tales of others' pains but help me to endure them
I' dare not ask for improved memory, but for a growing
humility and a lessening cocksureness when my memory seems
to clash with the memories of others. Teach me the glorious
lesson that occasionally I may be mistaken.
Keep me reasonably sweet; I do not want to be a saint --
some of them are so hard to live with -' but a sour old person
is one of the crowning works of. the devil. Give me the ability
to see things in unexpected places and talents in unexpected peo-
ple. Give me the grace to tell them so.

and things have been coming our
way but It seems that other areas
have decided to give us a run for
our money and they are beginning
to do it In a big way.
New England won't hurt us, In
fact many Floridians enjoy visiting
New England In the summer but
our problem is fast transportation
and low rates in Europe, the Or-
ient, Caribbean areas and Central
and South America.
These folks are waking up and
spending huge sums to attract visi-
tors. Millions of tourist dollars that
were earmarked Florida a few years
ago are now being spent through-
out the world. More and more busi-
ness will' be lured away from us in
the years ahead.
Stop at your favorite newsstand
and pick up a copy of Holiday or
the New York Times and read the
advertisements designed to lure
tourists to other areas. You will be
amazed. A tour of several European
countries costs no more today than
a Florida vacation. Airlines, etegm-
ship companies and railroads are
picturing the Joys of distant travel
in such appealing promotions that
they are really giving Florida a
run for her money.
We are indeed fortunate that we
have such a capable promotion de-
partment in Tallahassee. The ac-
complishment of our Florida De-
velopment Commission, on the
small funds at It scommnand has
been outstanding. Add to this the
magnificent effort of suoh attrac-
tions as Silver Springs, Cypress
Gardens, Marineland and many oth-
ers to say nothing of the count-
less chambers of commerce, hotel
and other private agencies that. are
continually pouring millions of dol-
lars into Florida publicity and we
are fortunate indeed.
But tomorrow is another day,
competition is becoming' much
keener. We cannot and must not
rest on our oars.

'New England, long recognized as
an ideal summer vacation area,
has been feeling the effects of com-
p6titive tourist promotions for
some time. Tourist business has
been dropping off and so officials
decided to revamp their tourist ap-

the promotion of tourist travel.

GROW OLD GRACEFJLLY
Do you dread growing old? Te o
bad if you do, because, like the
weather, there is nothing you can
do about it.
Mentally, there is much you can
do. You can prepare yourself for
the years that have been added to
your life span through the modern
advances of medicine.
A feeling of usefulness and a
purpose in living are extremely im-
portant to every man and woman.
Plan new things. Develop a hobby
that will keep, you interested men-
tally and physically. Generally oldei
people are. thought unable to learn
new things. This is not true. Prove
the statement wrong by broadening
your interests. Keep yourself flexi-
ble in your thinking.
Keep yourself active. This is an-
other step in the right direction to
prepare for your advancing years.
Get yourself a parttime job if need
be. Take part in church and club
activities. Keep yourself busy. Use
the proverbial rocking chair oc-a-
sionally if you will, but don't plan
to rock the rest of your life away
with thoughts of what used to be.
Remember that life can be fas-
cinating or meaningless at any age.
If life is interesting, there is always
something to live for. It is when
one feels lonely and useless that life
loses its meaning.
As the years go by, physiologic
changes take .place inthel human
body. The skin becomes wrinkled.
Walking is slower; there is less
springto the step, and the body be-
comes susceypible to the chronic
illnesses that beset the older age
population. These are natural
changes which must be accepted.
But the way you accept them is
what counts. Just as mode r
science has added years to your life,
you are the one who can add life td

This is one of a series of quickreasy candy recipes developed in the
Lever Test Kitchens for the Imperial margarine. Its delicate natural
flavor, unlike that of other margarines, compliments the other flavors
and leaves no oily after taste.
Grated orange rind and a dash of ginger also add to the unusual
flavor of these delicious candies. An extra added plus is that they keep
very well. They can be wrapped in foil, waxed paper or cellophane,
and put away for special occasions.

Chevy pickup pulls through"bottomless"
pastures to keep stock fed!
At the Hall Bros. Dairy Farm, Montgom-
ery, Ala., they say this 4-wheel drive Chevy
will go anywhere to keep stock fed-even
through hub-deep muck that makes it a
fight all the way. And yet after a full year
of it-no mechanical trouble of any kind!
That Chevy pickup may not win any beauty
awards (till it's cleaned up). But it's sure
walking off with the top prize for depend-
ability. And that's standard Chevrolet proce-
dure. Put a Chevy truck to work and it keeps
on working until you say quit. Not before.
We aren't claiming that every Chevrolet
truck is turning out to be a miracle-worker
and averaging 100,000 miles before a valve
job. (Even though some are going 150,000!)
You're sure to find, however, that you can't
buy more truck dependability at any price.
And that's borne out by the fact that more
truck owners put their faith, and their pay-
loads, in Chevrolets than in any other make.
Take your load and schedule figures to your
Chevrolet dealer. He'll specify the best way to
handle both and save in the bargain.
No job's too tough for a Chevrolet truck! Ae,
Now's the time-see your local authorized Chevrolet dealer for a real truck buy!

New Hardy Enemy of Mosquito Found
JACKSONVILLE Another nat- Mr. Mulrennan said this week
ural enemy of the salt-marsh mos- that scientists at th estate's Ento-
quito has been found, and studies biological Research Center at Vero
are under way to find means and Beach have discovered that the
methods of encouraging its develop- lowly killifishes, the small common

"I know you're in there, Frisby."
have certain other characteristics
which make them an invaluable al-
ly with man against the pesky In-
sects that sting tourists and natives
indiscriminately. Preliminary stu-
dies have shown, he said, that the
killifishes are able to live and breed
in either the salt water that wash-
es in to flood the marshes at cer-
tain :times, or the fresh water that
accumulates in rainy seasons. Be-
sides, the state's chief entomologist
relates, the killifishes eggs, which
are laid in the marshes, are not
destroyed by dry periods, and will
hatch even after lying in the dry
sod for as much as three months.
Thus the killifish is lying in wait,
ready to be hatched and start eat-
ing when the waters rise and hatch
the mosquito -eggs..
The studies are being made prin-
cipally by Dr. R. W. Harrington,
Jr., a biologist who two years ago
discovered the answer to the ques-
tion as to where 'the tarpon spends
the first months of its life. He
found baby tarpon in the salt mar-
shes, growing bigger on mosquito
Mulrennan said that if the stu-
dies prove what is now suspected
about the killifishes, measures will
undoubtedly be undertaken to en-
courage the breeding of the ape
cies, especially in impounded wa-
ters where the salt water enemies
of th mosquito larvae do not thrive.
Bob Sikes Channel
To Get Dredging
Washington, D. C.-Congressman
Bob Sikes has been advised by Col-
onel R. W. Love, District Engineer,
Mobile, Alabama, that maintenance
dredging to restore project dimen-
sions throughout the Bob Sikes
Channel will be performed just as
soon as suitable dredging equip-
ment can be made -available. Col.
Love has stated that he expects
this equipment to be available dur-
ing the latter part of May or early,
June. Adequate funds are available
in the district to cover the cost of
this work. Fishermen in the area
are extremely anxious to have this
work carried out at the earliest pos-
sible time as they will suffer great
financial loss unless the channel
can be restored to project dimen-
sions. Congressman Sikes has 'ex-
pressed gratification that the En-
gineers will perform this necessary
dredging in the immediate future.

Last July, while attending the
convention of the National Associa-
tion of Recorders and Clerks, in
Portland, Iregon, Core was appoint-
ed, with two other gentlemen to
Serve on the civil defense commit-
tee. He was made chairman of that
committee, whose number one job
was to review the preliminary draft

recommendations for preserving i-
tal documents in time of disaster.
The one-day meeting will get un-

Dr. Dean Talks
To Rotary Club
Dr. Harris Dean, chairman of the
evaluating team at the Port St.
Joe High School last week was
the guest speaker at the Rotary
Club at their meeting last Thurs-
day. Dr. Dean spoke of the work
of the Southern Association, which
does the evaluating.
He said the purpose of the As-
sociation was to keep the stan-
dards of the schools up to par. The
Association began in 1948 and since
that time have evaluated every
school in their area.
Dr. Dean paid,, high tribute to
Florida's Minimum Foundation pro-
gram, calling it the "miracle" that
was needed to keep Florida's pub-
lic schools apace with the growth
of the state.
He told the Club that the school
bill in Florida was rising every
year .due to the fact that the state's
school enrollment was jumping by
about.50,000 per year. "Naturally
more students require more oper-
ating money", said Dean.
Guests of -the' club were Fred
Richards and Manny Brash of Apa-
lachicola; Merrit Pope of Panama
City; Mary Frimodeg, Bruce Dwig-
gins, Charley Ewing and Dick Mc-
Intosh, of Port St. Joe.
Most Fires Are
Dispatcher J. H. Pope of the
Florida Forest Service gives the
forest fire record since the first
,of the year, as follows:
From January 1 t April 30, 10
careless fires burning 95.5 acres
and -one incendiary fire burning
two acres for a total of 11 fires
burning 97.5 acres.
During the same period in 1958,
11 fires were reported burning 101
Of these firesin both years, Pope
pointed out that all but one of them
was caused by carelessness.
