Cecil Costin might not appreciate
this little story-probably consid-
ering It a thorn in his pride that
i' should .have happened to ,him.
But, even though this story did
'happen, we admire him for .hav-
nlg arranged ,the circumstances
that caused the incident to happen.
And .since It wounded only his.
.pride, the story may be -told.
Cecil and his wife Margaret went
fishing about 'two weeks ago-as
they do nearly every Wednesday
Cecil .had Margaret in the back
of the boat handling the boat and
driving the motor. Cecil was in
the front of the -boat doing the ty-
Margaret had the boat headed
for a choice .piece of brush to tie
the boat to for fishing purposes.
Cecil, as we said was on the front
of the boat-but not for long.
About the time boat got to 'the
bushes, Margaret looked up to see
Cecil stumbling back toward her in
utmost haste yelling, '-t.urn -the
boat there's a snake in those bush-
es!" Margaret, not caring for
snakes, gave the boat full rudder
and the motor full .power. About
the -time 'the boat received full rud-
der and full power, Cecil stood up.
And, like his tenure in the front
of the boat-he didn't stay stood
up for long..Over the side of the
,,pioat he went, right In-to the drink.
The poor old snake all this time
was so shook up by all these events
he was 'too scared to move, to .the
relief of Oecil.' .' .
Margaret fished Cecil out of the
drink-her biggest catch of 'the
Cecil ihad by now lost all of his
courtroom..-aplomb. In fact. Margar-
et says he.was a liUttle "put out".
Margaret, wanted to go on fishing
and Cecil wanted 'to come home.
They wound up going back to the
landing at which time Cecil chang-
ed his mind and decided they had
just as well go back to fishing, "If
Margaret wanted to".
Now, you .say, why should we
admire Cecil In a situation such as
Why that's ,plain simple. We ad-
mire him for being boss enough at
his house to decide whether his
wife could go on fishing or not-
and, also, for -training his wife to
run the boat so he can fish.

Boat Club Fishing Rodeo Winners
Announced; Fish Fry Gets Rained Out
The Port St. Joe Boat Club's
fishing rodeo had hard luck this
year, right down to the final day.
The Rodeo, which had to be -post-
poned twice because of Inclement
weather, met a .deluge of rain right
at serving time for their fish fry
Monday at noon. To cap it all off,
the pot of grease to be used to fr7
the fish in, caught fire and burned.
The Fish Fry was originally sche-
duled for July 4. Rainy weather and
high water made fishing worse than
bad, and no entries could be caught.
Despite the rained out fish' fry
'the Boat Club announced the fol-
lowing winners ,of prizes in the

The following statement comes from the lap of experience and
observation: When we merchants of Port St. Joe give more time,'
effort and thought to the matter of keeping our own back yards in
good condition (exploring customer wants and needs giving top
notch service and satisfaction with every purchase) we'll have less
time to complain about out of town shopping, etc. and etc. It is this
merchant's opinion that most of our people prefer shopping at home
when their wants are available when the price is RIGHT .
when the Service is efficient and pleasant. How well are we doing?
The people of Port St. Joe know Do we? Wonder how much
we're kidding ourselves? My opinion is the amount of business we
get from our own people is commensurate with service and satisfac-
tion rendered. I'm guessing a reason for much out of town shopping
can be found in our own store.

and proven new car in history. Today this new Ford Falcon starts
EXPERIENCE RUN, U.S.A., over every mile of numbered U. S. highway
This is not a test run in the ordinary
sense of the word. For in its 3 years of
development and over 3 million miles
of proving, the Falcon has, already
passed and repassed every kind of test
that could be devised.
It's been dust-tested, heat-tested, and
endurance-testect on the test track at
Kingman, Arizona. Wind-tested and
rain-tested in the 300 mph wind tunnel
at the University of Maryland. Shock-
tested, curve-tested, brake-tested, noise-
tested, paint-tested, stability-tested,
service-tested everything-tested on
Ford's own proving grounds. The Fal-
con has already proved to engineers
that it takes anything they can dish out.
Now, Experience Run, U.S.A. will
show you what the Falcon can do over
your kind of roads.
How many miles to the gallon? Rec-
ords will be kept of every drop of gas
used. Better gas mileage? The Falcon
will average up to 30 miles per gallon 1
On October 8, the New-size Ford will
be at your Ford Dealer's ... for you to
experience. See your Ford Dealer today

Y UR MERCHANT MARINE
S.. a. .
N. S. SAVANNAH
"America has the lead in atom power for ships. Let's keep it!"
said Ralph E. Casey, president of the American Merchant Marine
Institute, at the July 21 launching of the nuclear merchant ship
Besides the Savannah, we have an atomic aircraft carrier, a
destroyer, a cruiser and 33 submarines built or building. The
private merchant marine industry must accept this responsibility
One American company, Esso Standard Oil, has already offered.
to build and operate a nuclear tanker, provided the Government
contributes the power plant. A second American Line, Isbrandtsen,
has proposed cutting one of its present ships in half and inserting
an atomic power unit in a prefabricated hull section. b
It is forward thinking like this which will give substance to
President Eisenhower's prophecy that the N.S. Savannah will be
the "forerunner of atomic merchant and passenger fleets which
will one day unite the nations of the world in peaceful trade."
