the charges if he so desired.

not due to illness. He further said
that he and the attendance officer,
R. C. Maddox had both contacted
the families involved to. no avail.
The Board stated that they
would take the matter up with the
County Judge and see if the situa-

ther or not to release Dr. Willa
Dean Lowery from her position as
Gulf County Health Doctor came to
a head last Thursday night at thp

Although several people were
present at the meeting last Thurs-
day, only two had anything to say
in the matter and both of
these in favor of retaining Dr. Low-
cry in her position.
Harold Odom asked the Board
what had been decided at the clos-
ed meeting with the Doctor. He al-
so presented several letters recom-
mending the Doctor very highly
and read them to the Board. Odum
had received the letters from her
fellow employers and co-workers
in Escambia County, where Dr.
Lowery worked with the county

Commissioner Leo Kennedy, who
has led the fight to dismiss the doc-
tor made a motion that the action
of the previous County Board be
unheld by the present Board (to
release Doctor Lowery). He went
on to state that his motion was
nothing personal on his part and
stated, "I feel she is well quali-
fied". Kennedy went on to say
that after investigation on his part
he felt the doctor was absent from
her office too much, records were
not readily accessible; poor rela-
tionship existed between the 'em-
ployees and the Doctor; he felt

the annual address by Charles G.
Mortimer, president of General
Foods, using as his subject the
matter of the need to stimulate
business in the United States.
Mortimer. offered the observation
that the country's economic growth
must be speeded up. "And the only
thing that will speed up this growth
is a healthy profits system, which
will -instigate expansion on the
part of manufacturers."
Mortimer classed most of the
people of the United States as an
earner, a consumer and an invest-
or, stating that by far the majority
of the wage earners of the country
fall in these three categories at
64e and. the same time, whether
they realize it or not.
The speaker pointed out that the
gross national product has grown
by 58% during the decade of 1951
to 1961. But during this profit,
profits have averaged only 8%, or
18% lower thaA they were at the
previous decade, which saw a heal-
thy growth in the nation.

Highway Patrol Official Says Proper
Attitude Needs To Be Taught Drivers
"We as parents need to present
the proper example of good driving
habits to our teen agers", said
Sgt. Jansen of the Florida High-
way Patrol to the Kiwanis Club
The Sergeant also said that we
need to pick out the good teen-age
drivers and give them a pat on the
back ,as well as castigate the bad
drivers. He pointed out that the
bad teen-age drivers just hadn't
been "coached" properly.
The Sergeant pointed out that
so far this year, 219 people have
been killed on Florida highways,
with an additional 11,219 injured.
As a startling statistic, Sgt. Jan-
sen told the Kiwanians that for
every death that happened on Flor-
ida's highways each year, it cost
every motorist $35.00 in charges
he didn't know he was paying. This
comes in the form of higher in-
surance rates, more expensive law
enforcement, more elaborate pre-
vention devices on highways, etc.
The speaker made an example
of the plane crash in South Florida
last week in which 43 people died.
"This received nation-wide publici-
mission, heavy duty generating and electrical
equipment and heavy-duty engine. The car is
equipped with a mesh steel prisoner cage back
seat to protect the driver from a hostile prisoner.

ty for several days", Jansen said,
"but Florida motorists had already
killed 143 in auto accidents since
January 1 at the time of the plane
crash, with virtually no fanfare".
After July 15 of this year the
speaker pointed out that no teen-
ager will be able to receive an op-
erators license at the age of 16 un-
less he has completed driver's edu-
cation, a private driving school or
unless his parents will sign an af-
fidavit to be responsible for the
youth's driving. A youth cannot re-
ceive an operator's license without
these provisos until he reaches the
age of 18. The speaker pointed out
that driver's education is now
taught in all Florida schools, "and
we plan to make use of it to lessen
our accident rate".
Honored at the club was Jimmy
Parrish, who won the Jaycee Driv-
ing Road-e-o contest in Port St. Joe
on February 23.
Guests of the club were David
Macomber and Jimmy Parrish of
St. Joe High School; Sonny Dean
of Port St. Joe and Carl Torbett of
Choctawhatchee Bay and Chief of
Police H. W. Griffin.

U. S. YUGOSLAVIA
Those of us who have protested
grants of U. S. funds and donations
of U. S. military equipment to Yu-
goslavia now note that relations be-
tween that country and the United
States have dropped to the lowest
point since President Tito broke
with the Soviet Union some years
ago. The Moscow-Belgrade split
now appears to be healed; whereas,
United States-Yugoslavia frictions
have been mounting. I stated from
the beginning that Yugoslavia was
Communist, and when the show-
down came Yugoslavia would be
found in the Communist camp. It
now appears that money given to
that nation under both Republican
and Democratic Administrations
was wasted and that some day the
weapons we gave them may be used
against us and our friends.

was Master of Ceremonies for the Activities Committee has perform-

ored with a special presentation
for services to the nation's defense.
Supervisors attending were: George
Andress, George Baughn, Jim
Stumbaugh, Victor Lundgren, Pen,
sacola; Sam Lovelace, Louis Bass,
McDavid Giddens, Whiting; Craw.
ford Fountain, Panama City. At-
tending this affair and also attend
ing a luncheon on the following
day at the Capitol were Frank E
Welles, Jr., Chairman of the Mili-
tary Affairs Committee, Pensacola
Chamber of Commerce; Raymond
Dyson, President of Industries Un,
limited of Pensacola; Joe Marques,
Jr., Filo Turner, Jr., Dave Johnson,
C. P. Woodbury, and Waldo Car-
rell. Vice Admiral C. P. Mason
hosted the luncheon group. He is
a dedicated public servant of high
standing in the Navy and in Pen-
sacola. Admiral Magruder Tuttle
and members of the Naval Air Sta-
tion staff were also present at both
functions. Cooperation between
Pensacola's responsible organiza-
tions and the Navy is extremely im-
portant and most people in the
area recognize this. The Capitol
luncheon was for high top-ranking
representatives of the Department
of the Navy, members o the Navy
Secretariat, and members of Con-
gress. It was well attended by each
group. Ten top admirals and three
members of the Navy Secretariat,
including Paul Fay, James Wake-
lin and Victor Longstreet, were
present for this affair.
I supported wholeheatedly the
House action giving the Un-Ameri-
can Activities Committee a larger
operating budget. The vote came
out 385 to 20 in favor of providing
the Committee with $360,000 to in-
vestigate subversion this year. I
feel that the House Un-American

Many People Are
Losing SS Benefits
Many people, age 62 or older
are losing Social Security benefits
every day because they have not
filed claims, John V. Carey, Dis-
trict Manager of the Panama City
Social Security Office, said this
week. No benefits can ever, be paid
unless a claim is filed, and failure
to claim these benefits can repre-
sent a financial loss of several hun-
dred dollars a year.
The Social Security Law permits
payment of all Social Security
checks for the year, if the individ-
ual does not earn more than $1,-
200.00, Carey added. Even where
earnings exceed $1,200.00, it is of-
ten possible for an individual to re-
ceive a substantial portion of his
Social Security benefits for the
year. A person who earns $1,700.00
a year, for example, would lose
only $250.00 of his Social Security
benefits. Persons of retirement age
with a wife or young children may
earn well over $1,700.00 and still
receive some of their benefits.
Many farmers, operators of
small businesses, household work-
ers, agricultural workers, and many
others, do not usually earn more
than $1,200.00 in a year, Carey
continued. Persons engaged in
these occupations, or part-time
workers, are almost certainly los-
ing benefits by not filing claims.
If they have relied on information
telling them that no benefits could
be paid because they are working,
they should contact their Social
Security office for an explanation
of how the law applies in their in-
Anyone reaching gage 62, whether
working or not owes it to himself
to check with the Social Security
office to see if any benefits may be
paid, Carey concluded. .Many per-
sons do not file claims at age 62
because they do not wish to receive
a reduced benefit. A person should
never hesitate to file because of
the reduction, as it takes many
years past 65 to recover benefits
which could have been paid before
65. Pamphlet 23c, "You Don't Have
to Retire Completely," is free for
the asking at any Social Security
office. Carey urged anyone, age
62 or over, who has worked under
Social Security, to see if any bene-
fits may be payable if he has not
already done so.

Forest Fires Are
Low for Month
Gulf County Dispatcher W. F.
Overman reports that since Jan-
uary 1 of this year, Gulf County
has had only two wild fires which
burned two acres.
The Service said that this time
of the year has seen hazardous con-
ditions in the forests due to dry-
ness, but they credit the concern of
the public in fire prevention for
keeping the number of forest fires
to a minimum.
The service also assisted the
local fire departments with three
house fires: In one of these fires
a man lost his life. Zeb Hackett
of Port St. Joe was burned to
death the night of February 27 at
about 11:30 p.m.
Remember, regardless of what
type fire it may be ,someone "gets
The Forest Service urges that
the public continue to cooperate
to keep Gulf County green by pre-
venting woods fires.

WHET'IER Y1 SAVE TRADING STAMPS OR NOT. IF YOU BUY FOOD
IN PORT ST. JOE, WE THINK YOU WILL BE INTERESTED IN THIS...
When Any Food Store Merchant Tells You He Absorbes
The Entire Cost of the Trading Stamp He "Gives",
DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT !!
The Customer ALWAYS Pays ALL The Cost of Every Successful Business:
All. American businesses are started and run for one primary reason. This reason is to
earn money-profits-for their owners.
The food store business is no different from any other business in this respect except
that food store profits are smaller than profits in practically any other kind of store.
Owners of several food stores which "give" trading stamps admit that these stamps
represent from two cents to five cents on each dollar of sales. Who pays, then, for the
extra cost of these trading stamps? Not the owners, because they must make a profit
to stay in business. Remember: the customer ALWAYS pays ALL costs of every success-
it is obvious that food stores "giving" trading stamps must "make up" the added cost
in some way. Two ways this can be done are by raising prices on seldom-advertised
items (which the customer can't easily check) or by selling poorer quality merchandise
(which may also be difficult for the customer to see).
Have you considered the small return you receive for a book of Trading Stamps. A
minimum purchase of $150.00 is required to fill a book with Trading Stamps. For your
$150.00 worth of purchases, you receive a premium worth approximately $3.00. Your
actual saving amounts to $1.00 for each $50.00 you spend in a Food Store giving
stamps. When you shop at WOOD'S DISCOUNT FOODLINER YOU SAVE $4.00 to
$6.00 on every $40.00 you spend. "WITH CASH SAVINGS ON THE GO" you get "MORE
FOR YOUR DOUGH."
Because of these facts, Ed Woods decided to STOP SELLING STAMPS and START SELL-

The Stevedores cut their magic
number to 37 last week by pound-
ing Roche's Furniture for three
points. Not one Stevedore broke
500 but they all were close except
for a couple. Danny Maddox was
high with 492 followed by Ted
Grabowski's 472. Jerry Strobel was
high for Roche's with 483 but the
rest were way off. Lou Little had
412 to be second high. Looks like
the Stevedores are going to replace
the fast-fading Costin team as
Florida National Bank rolled ov-
er Costin's for three points to give
the defending champs their 29th
loss out of thei rlast 37 starts. Cos-
tin's had three bowlers trying to
stop the bankmen but Billy Joe
Richards led his team to the win
with 537. Bill Whaley rolled 491
for second high. Waring Murdock
rolled 522 following a 225 second
Jake rolled 519 and Jimmy Roll-
ed 480. Tommy Pridgeon got there
in time to roll the last game but
I won't mention what it was.
Basil's Standard Station gained
little ground but didn't lose any
either as they edged out a real
tough Michigan team. They battled
even the first two games, splitting
the two games by wide margins.
The last game went to the wire
with Basil's on top end by four
pins. Basil's added total pins by
only eight pins to take three
points. Lamar Moore rolled his
high this year with 585 to lead Ba-
sil's. Tom Thornton rolled 548 fol-
lowed by Samuelson's 500. Ray
Medlin rolled high for Michigan
with 547 followed by Ralph Ward's
539. Frank Dennis was big gun as
he rolled a 235 second game to
give him a 526 series.

Alleys 3 and 4 were scenes of
excitement as Ed's Florist made
off with four points from the St.
Joe Laundry. Highlights of the
game was Dot Kohler for the laun-
dry, bowling three games with the
same score, for which she will re-
ceive a triple score award. Wynell
Burke for Ed's picked up the 2-10
split. Also for Ed's, Maxine Jensen
bowled a 241 game winning a
blouse donated by Boyles Depart-
ment Store. She led Ed's Florist
with a 554 series. Wynell Burke
