PORT ST. JOE, FLORIBA
City Agrees To Furnish
Site For Scout Buildi ng
Group of Citizens To Erect Building
Behind Recreation Center In Park
Mayor J. L. Sharit presided over the City Commission
meeting Tuesday night for.the first time since his illness in
December of last year. A full quorum was present to hear
several requests from as many groups of citizens concerning
recreation matters for the summer in the City of Port St.
Joe. Foremost on the agenda was a request from a represen-
tative group from scouting organizations in Port St. Joe for
a site to locate a permanent Scout building.
Chauncey Costin 'acted as spokes.-
man for about 5'0 adult Scouters Costin stated 'thaJt ithe Recreation

A small crowd of some half
dozen persons was on hand Tues-
day night to discuss local legis-
lation with Representative Ce-
cil G. Costin.
Only two pieces of legislation
was discussed during the hour.
R. H. ElIzey officially opposed
a local bill to give Circuit Judges
a raise in pay to be paid for out
of county general fund money.
Elizey said, "I am not against
the Judges receiving more mon-
ey, but 1 don't think it should
come from county funds, since it
would be a continuing fund and
the county would be bound for
ElIzey went on to point out that
the judges were already receiving
$13,500.00 a year from the state
and $1,500.00 a year from local
money, which was on a par with
other Circuit Judges throughout'
the state. Ellzey pointed out that
the State Cabinet officers now
made only $2,000 a year more
than our Circuit Judges.
Costin told Elizey that he was
sure. the Legislature would not
raise the Judge's salary. He felt
that the first salary raises would
go to the school teachers, but that.
lack of revenue would probably
prevent any raises at all.
The other topic under conver-
sation was a request by J. C.
Arbogast to give the County
Commisison zoning powers. His
reason for requesting this Legis-
lation was due to unsanitary and
unfair building practices in the
Beach area. Arbogast felt that
this area should be protected by

WHY I GO
By JAMES C. TRAWEEK
I attend church to worship !be-
cause I believe in God, in Christ,
and in His 'teachings.
The Bible teaches us .to worship
God and to forsake not the assemb-
ling of ourselves together for this
purpose. If we are 'to find God, I
believe ,one of the most likely plac-
es -to do 'so is in His church. Then,
church attendance i's one way of
expressing our devotion 'to God and
seeking for closer communion with
1 he Bible also tells us, "Seek
and you shall find." When we make
the decision to attend church for
worship'we have made a right step
in.'seeking truth. We have made 'the
right decision by selecting God's
teachings as our guide and for a
motivating influence in our lives.
We as Christians know that good
can and will ultimately triumph
over evil, but if we expect to tri-
umph over .the evil 'temptations -of
daily life, we must seek fellowship
with God and call upon him for
strength to overcome these temp-
Devotion to Christ can hardly be
perpetuated unless we dedicate
ourselves to its continuance. In
working for the cause of Christ and
in dedicating ourselves -to greater

State Must Act On School Financing
The just passed meeting of the Florida Education Assoc-
iation in Jacksonville rated some state-wide publicity on the
teacher's demands for a higher wage. We need the teachers,
and the teachers should have a living wage. This situation
seems to hold true with something we read some time back-
things we need are going up in price, while things we don't
necessarily have to have, are coming down in price.
We disagree with State Superintendent Tom Bailey's
seemingly approved method of raising this money through
federal aid. We can't afford the federal "aid" we get now.
It would seem that this would be the opportune time for
the Legislature to take some definite steps in upping property
valuations in the state to allow local money to do the desired
job. Upping valuation would, simply, place most homestead
property, now exempt, on the property for a token tax. And,
the schools would get their share of this tax.
But, most counties are reluctant to go along with this re-
evaluation of property, because they are afraid of being taxed
too heavily by their county, which has certain limits set by
the state, on how much tax can be levied. With the advent of
a sensible hike in valuation, these limits would be far too
high. We could be taxed far out of proportion to our abilities
to pay and the county's needs.
While we don't claim to know law or the workings of
the law, it seems to us that something could be done by the
Legislature to rectify this situation. It would seem to us that
these tax limits could be lowered to protect the people in the
counties having a sensible valuation. Such a step of lowering
of limits would not only provide protection for these counties
but it would also force other counties into reevaluation and
thereby spread the tax load.
To give an example of what we are talking abou-t, the
county Road and Bridge Fund can levy 10 mills under the
law. With full evaluation in Gulf County, this fund could
be legally pushed up to the limit and would bring in more
taxes alone, than the entire tax limit can now bring in under
present valuations.- Thi~ fear is a valid fear. It would seem
to us that these mill limits could be cut thus protecting the
taxpayer. By the same token the cut in mill limits would
curtail the income of counties with low evaluations. They
would be forced to re-evaluate to take in the necessary money
on which to operate. With this forced evaluation would come
the hike in valuation of homesteads-the majority of which
ire now $5,000 and less and wholy exempt from taxes.
It's something to think about and we think the matter
should be given top priority in the coming Legislature if we
are to head off the spectre of government aid to education.
Trying To Hide National Disgrace
Liquor drinking at diplomatic parties in Washington,
D.C., is "a sin upon our national conduct," U.S. Sen. Olin D.
Johnston of South Carolina complains.
He is opposing a supplemental appropriation of $22,000
in "representation funds" for the State Department.
"Representation funds" is camouflage for entertainment
funds, and entertainment funds in this particular case is
partly camouflage for funds to buy drinking whiskey.
It's just as well, the boys in Washington seem to think,
if the tax money spent on whiskey is wrapped up in termin-
ology that is not exactly brutally frank in its clarity to the
But it is possible to agree with Senator Johnston of
South Carolina in his complaint of "a sin upon our national
And, the method of "hiding" the appropriation would
indicate to us that the members of the State Department
also agree that it is wrong, since none of them is loathe to
toot his own horn when something beneficial is introduced
or brought about through his efforts.
Diplomatic partying has developed into a major perpet-
ual pastime in the capital of the United States. Not all of
the money invested in booze comes out of the pockets of the
American people. Some of it comes out of the pockets of
foreigners, since foreign embassies constantly pitch in to
supplement Uncle Sam in pitching parties.
Over-all, however, it is possible to look on the blurred
side of all the diplomatic shindigging and find full evidence
that such practices should be curtailed. Probably not a little
bit of our diplomatic set-backs are attributable to such goings

"This catch was three iper cent
above the average for the past five
years, with unusually large catches
in 1956 amId 1959 topping last year's
figure. Accounting for the lesser
.take was a sizeable drop in non-
food' fish last year to about half
the 1959 volume.
"The catch 'of food fin fish last
year came to 75,478,000 pounds, a
gain of three per cent over the a'v-
erage. M.enhaden and related fish
processed for 'ois and fertilizer, to-
taled 32,801,000 pounds, off 23 per
cenit from the average.
"Sthrimp, crabs, lobster and oth-

pounds, up 20 per cent. The sponge
crop, making a slow come-back,
came to 38,000 pounds, compared
with an average of 31,000 pounds.
All told, the catch amounted to
190,290,000 'pounds during 1960.

ALL ABOUT YAWNING
The contagiousness of a yaw.i
is familiar to all. One person in
a room yawns and starts a pro-
cession of involuntary reaction
in others ending in similar
Yawning may be defined as a
deep involuntary inspiration with
the mouth open. In fact, it is the
sound of the inspiration or
breathing in, as well as'the sight
of a yawn in others, that starts
the chain reaction. Yawning is
often accompanied by what is
termed pandiculation, derived
from the Latin word pandiculari,
meaning to stretch one's self.
Yawning may be due to hun-
ger, fatigue, poor ventilation or
it may be done to relieve air
hunger. A volume of air is in-
haled deeply and the lungs are
given a treat. There is a feeling
of contentment and tone stimu-
lation following a yawn. Nature
is doing us this favor by setting
up a reflex action -to give us a
pick-up when we are dissatisfied,
bored, tired or hungry. Another
physical significance of yawning
is to let air into the auditory
tubes, which can also be accom-
plished by swallowing.
Yawning is one of the.unusual
types of breathing, different
from the ordinary inspiration
and expiration. Sighing is a long
inspiration and a short expira-
tion and usually occurs to com-
pensate for very shallow breath-
ing. Laughing is a long inspira-
tion followed by several short
expirations, usually in a rhyth-
mic ha-ha-ha, or perhaps ho-ho-
ho. Crying, sneezing, coughing,
and hiccoughing are other types
of unusual breathing.
Yawning is ,an innocent, sim-
ple gesture. It has its disconcert-
ing impact when someone yawns

T'S LATE at night and the one thing you need
most in this world is a prescription filled
for someone you love. You make a phone call
and a friend answers-your druggist. Within
minutes after your call, he's on the job.
It takes a time like this to make you realize
how much you depend on 'this man, yet how
much you take him for granted. Your phar-
macist means medicine when you need it-
skillfully prepared. He means service-regard-
less of time. His concern is for you, not only

And what a valuable "extra" for you
if your neighborhood drug store gives you

Lee distinguished himself as a
tactician during the Oivil' War in
Ithe fact that he was always out-

now known as Washington and Lee
University. Lee's tomb is located
on ,the campus of ,the university.
