"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
THURSDAY, AUGUST 13, 1 9
,ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA
by Wh$LEY R. RAMSEY
Guess 'about the best way to stop
it from raining is to write a column
about -how muoh rain we have had.
A subject like that will' do it
We have written several columns
.on rain -and the day the paper
came out it was bright and sun-
shiny. A couple of years ago it
snowed on press day. We wrote a
column on the snow and when the
paper went out it had disappeared.
Chances are, you had rather see
it stop raining for a while right
now so we will contribute our part
to see what we can do.
How is a person going to pick
* out dog: days this year?
-Since summer has began, the
'weather hasn't been fit for a dog
and it seems as how that is how
you define dog day---that wea-
ther not fit for dogs, that is.
Coach ,Craig said this week that
the awaited football season will
start-as far as he and the play-
ers are concerned-Monday.
Port St. Joe people are a funny
breed, and somewhat like bears.
The bear goes into a hollow at
the first sign of cold weather and
hibernates. Port St. Joe people go
into a hole at the end of football
season and hibernate until the next
whistle blows in the fall.
It will be interesting to see the
Sharks this year and to read about
them in the daily papers.
The dailies usually say that St.
Joe will be loaded. Coach Craig al-

HARBOR BILL APPROVED BY HOUSE-
SENATE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE
In a telegram to The Star Tuesday of this week, Florida's
delegation to Congress advised that the joint Senate-House
conferees agreed this week to retain the million dollar approp-
riation in the public works bill for work on the Port St. Joe
The bill,must now be approved by both the Senate and
House and the bill signed by the President for the Port St.
Joe money to be certain. However, the appropriation has
now gone through several committees and has met approval
in each. This gives almost a guarantee that the appropriation_
will go the ,ist of-thie ioute with the appropriation bill.
The telegram was signed by Spessard Holland, George
Smathers and Bob Sikes.
Walter Wilder, a graduate of
Port St. Joe High School and now
a student at Sewannee, Tennessee
University of -the. South, spoke to
th- Kiwanis Club Tuesday about
the university he is attending.
Wilder said that the university
he is attending is .the 17th in the
nation in academic standing. The
University is :small, having only
about 600 students and *one of the
largest campuses of any university
in the nation. Wild,er spoke about
the athletic program of the school
which he says is one of the best in
the South. Wilder had nothing but
praise for the scholastic ability of
the students at the school. "A good
example is our football team, which
is chock full of straight 'A' students
aspiring to be lawyers, doctors,
Wilder told, of the program *of
the school's football 'team in the
last three years. The first year of
the three year period the team won
only one. game. The next year a
new coach, Shirley Majors, came
to Sewannee and the team began
to win. Last year, 'the team went
undefeated and were scored on by
only two teams. "We win because
we 'have a will to win and have
the brainpower to maneuver", said
Wilder again emphasized that
students at the school were intelli-
gent and the athletes keep in good

No Objections Are Made

than last year, a Tuesday morning
look at the budget proposed by the
School Board reveals.
The School Board met in regular

mendations from Superintendent

tially between now and the time

If there is no substantial altera-
tion school millage in Gulf Coun-
'ty will be up 2,375 mills over last
year's millage. For, after revenue
from all sources is considered, to
meet the balance proposed. it will
be,necessary for the School Board
to ask a levy of 10 mills in .the
District, 10 mills in 'the 'county,
and 2.125 mills toward retiring the
1952 school bond issue.
Last year, district millage was
10 mills, county S8 mills, and bond
issue 2.25 mills. Total for 1958-
1959 fiscal year: 20.25 mills.

readers of this column, and here we go in print again on the lighter
side of buying and selling merchandise. Speaking of the lighter side
reminds me of a sign in a store window: "Lades Ready-toWear
Clothes". Scribbled underneath: "It's about time". Someone has
said. that a face without a smile is like a lantern without a light.
When you fail to get a smile plus a thank you with a purchase at
Boyles, ask for your money back Keep the purchase Your com-
ments and suggestions are solicited. Tell us your wants and needs
along with your gripes, tool We'll even share some in your troubles.
(We've been there, too!)

Well, let's try to get to church Sunday, and in closing I'm
reminded, of a quarter talking: "I am 25 cents I am not on ,
speaking, terms with the butcher I am, not large enough to
purchase a box of candy I am too small to buy a ticket to the
movies I am hardly fit for a tip But believe me, when I
go to church on Sunday I am considered SOME MONEY." Let's
remember that a smile goes a long way but we're the ones to
start it on its journey (you and me). S'long. RGB.
P. S.-Remember: It's cool in Boyles (air-conditioned). Relax
and take your time shopping. We'll cash your check-, help watch

that "Success in Business Depends on .Unity". It might be well
to add living in general.

YOU may be surprised to learn
that what is commonly called
"athlete's foot" is a ringworm
infection. These fungi-caused in-
fections also occur on. the scalp,
face, body and nails. In addition
to causing great discomfort, they
can be extremely embarrassing,
especially on the scalp, where
hair is usually lost in unsightly
Self-treatment with easy-to-
obtain powders,' ointments and
solutions is seldom successful,
and can be dangerous, since you
run the risk of irritating the
infected area and possibly caus-
ing a more serious infection.
Medical examination should be
had as soon as you contract one
of these skin infections.
One effective test the doctor
has for determining the presence
of fungus infection on the scalp
is the Wood's light test, which is
black light. In a darkened room
and under this. light fungi will
The doctor now has available a
a new antibiotic, Fulvicin, that
clears up most of the ringworm
infections in weeks to a few
months, depending on type and
severity. It is taken orally and
like other antibiotics is available
only' on prescription.
In one case studied a 67-year-
old woman who had ringworm
of the scalp since she was seven

More boys than girls have
scalp ringworm, probably due to
their shorter hair, more contact
during play and possibly barber's
shears. It can also be picked up
from the back of theatre seats,
and certain forms are carried on
dogs and cats.
Athlete's foot is highly unpre-
dictable and one should always
take certain precautions to pre-
vent it. Wear perforated shoes
whenever possible, dry feet well
and use a mild foot powder, never
wear wet socks and it is best to
wear cotton or wool socks, since
they absorb perspiration better
than the synthetic fabrics.
If, despite your best precau-
tions, you do get a ringworm
infection, your doctor might pre-
scribe the new antibiotic, made
available by Schering Corpora-
tion. This is the first successful
oral treatment ever developed for
superficial fungus infections.
Fungi (which are microscopic
plants) live on the keratiinin the
dead cells of the skin. These dead
cells are constantly being dis-
carded, but the invading fungi

". the smoothest, most quiet,
softest riding car in its price
class." But the happiest part of it
all is that this Full Coil ride is
just one of seven big bests-all
documented by published opinions
of experts and on-the-record facts
BEST ROOM-Official dimen-
sions reported, to A.M.A.* show
that Chevrolet sedans offer more
front seat head room than all but
one of the high-priced cars-more
front seat hip room (by up to 5.9
inches) than the "other two" of
the leading low-priced three.
' BEST ENGINE-Chevrolet en-
gines have long won expert praise
from virtually every automobile
magazine, and, just recently, Chev-
rolet received the NASCARt Out-
standing Achievement award for
"the creation and continuing de-
velopment of America's most effi-
cient V-type engines."
BEST ECONOMY-A pair of
Chevrolet sixes with Powerglide
won their class in this year's Mobil-
gas Economy Run, topping every
other full-sized car. And the win-
ning mileage was a whopping 22.38
BEST BRAKES-Chevy's bonded-
lining brakes are the biggest in
their field, built for up to 66%
longer life. In a direct competition
conducted by NASCAR, Chevy out-
stopped both of the other leading
low-priced cars in a test of -re-
peated stops fro,' highway speeds.
BEST STYLE-It's the only car
of the leading lwy-priced 3 that's
unmistakably modern in every line.
"In its price class," says POPU-
LAR SCIENCE magazine, "a new
high in daring saying."
BEST TR -,.E-IN-Any
N.A.DA.DA.t Guide Book can give

value. You'll find that Chevrolet
used car prices last year averaged

advantages besides these seven.

WARTS: A COMMON
Warts are common skin dis-
orders. They are small tumors
on the skin, usually hard and
believed due to a virus. Al-
though warts often appear sud-
denly, they may either disappear
with equal suddenness or re-
Smain indefinitely. They are not
cancerous nor are they com-.
municable from one person to
A wart is an overgrowth cf
skin cells and is usually the,
same color as the rest of the
'skin. However, because of its
rough and uneven surface, a wart
collects and retains debris or
dirt and for this reason appears
darker than the surrounding
skin. Warts are often unsightly
but they are not painful, ex-
cept those on the soles of the
'feet. A wart on the sole of the,
foot, known as a plantar wart,
is a common wart surrounded
-by a corn. Because of ingrowth
and pressure this type of wart is
often painful. -
There are several kinds of
warts and likewise several kinds
of treatment for their removal.
Treatments include drying them
up by the use of electrical cur-
rent, caustics, dry ice, X-ray
.and radium or removing them
tby surgery. Warts can be diffi-
'cult to eradicate, depending on
their location, typ-, size and
[length of duration. Self-treat-
ment with acids or other means
is unsafe. A physician should be
consulted to determine the best
methodd for removal of warts.

One reason why people may be
surprised at the price of their pre-

lar expense item like other (and
often more expensive) items such
as dinner out, auto repairs or

ings afforded in prevention of hos-
pitalization or loss of job time more
than make up for the price of the
