SWork Started On Raising Hwy 98
Work was started this week on raising a por-
tion of Highway 98 North of First Street in Port
This section of Highway 98 becomes flooded
during heavy rains, and the State Road Depart-
meant is raising the road one foot in order- to
create better draining of the road.
The drain outlet for the highway is not much
lower than the highway at this point, thus creat-
ing a drainage problem. -Star photo
Senate Rules duPont
Must Divide Holdings
The Senate approved legisla-
tion Tuesday of this week that
would force the Alfred I. du-
Pont estate to divest itself eith-
er of its banking empire or its
large industrial 'holdings., Many
of these industrial and one du-
Pont bank are located here in
Port St. Joe.
The Senate approved an exten-
sion of the Bank Holding Com-
ipany Act by voice vote after re-
jecting a series of amendments.
.One of these amendments, by
S0t. Fwank Lausc~e, D-Ohio,
would give the Estve seven,
years to split up its "holdings.
The amendment was defeated.
As approved, the measure
would place duPont and. the fi-
nancial General Corp., of Wash-
ington, D. C., under provisions
of the 1956 act. Both firms were
specifically exempted when the
measure was approved 10 years

A delegation of 13 men appeared
before the City Commission Tues-
day night at their regular meeting
expressing their desire to see a
boat basin constructed by the City
for use by people of this area and
tourists coming to Port St. Joe dur-
ing the summer months.
R. F. Maxwell, commodore of the
St. Joe Boat Club told the Com-
mission that his club was very
much interested in seeing the City
carry out plans for acquisition of
waterfront property and construc-
tion of a boat basin. Maxwell and
other members of the Club present,
stated that the present boat basin
is on leased property that is not
for sale and is in bad need of main-
The City had already recognized
this fact, and had been informed
by Tom S. Coldewey that an indus-
try had an option on the property
and might purchase it at any time.
Boat Club member Dillon Smith
stated that it was his impression
that the industry was a cat food
plant planned by the Raffield Fish-
ery Company and that Gene Raf-
field, manager of the plant had
told him (Smith) that they didn't
need the property. Coldewey was
not present to add any information
to the subject of the option.
Commissioner John Robert Smith
said that at one time the present
basin property had been offered to
the City for purchase, but the Com-
mission decided not to purchase it
at the time. Later when they ask-
ed about buying the property, they
were informed of the option.
Commissioner Smith went on to
say that the City had been offered
five acres on the Gulf County Ca-
nal east of the present boat basin,
but the City had not yet said they
would buy the property since it
has a great deal of dirt on the
property that has been pumped
out of the canal in dredging opera-
tions. Smith said he felt the city
would incur unnecessary expense
in removing this dirt to build a ba-
sin and parking area.
Julian Wiley, also a member of
the Boat Club asked about the
possibility of purchasing or con-
demning and taking the boat
launching site at the West end of
Fifth Street. Mayor Hannon told
Wiley that the property was not

ches, sport fishing and hunting.
Clerk Tells of Bills
That Need Collecting
City Auditor and Clerk Charles
Brock reported to the City Commis-
sion Tuesday night that the City
books showed that there are many
old and uncollected debts on the
city books for cemetery lots pur-
chased and not paid for, concrete
pipe laid and not paid for and lots
mowed that have not been paid
The Clerk was instructed to take
collection proceedings or repossess
the cemetery lots and collect for
or take up the cement pipe and
collect for or issue liens against
the property mowed.
SThe Commission also instructed
the Clerk not to sell more lots
in the Cemetery at one time, other
than what is needed for burial.

Hike 'In Room Rates
Miss Minerva McLane, adminis-

that the Hospital will increase its

These rates are increased from

$15.00, $16.00 and $17.00 for a pri-
In making the increase in rates,

crease in cost of salaries and sup-
plies. You will find however, that
this is not out of line with other

It appears that the moment of decision is at hand in th
regards to the future of the duPont Estate in Florida. In en
the U. S. Senate, at any rate. T1
Tuesday, the Senate will debate on whether or not to th
remove the Estate from the bank holding act exemption. Gu
If the Senate rules against the Estate, it -will mean that they
will have to sell their group of banks or they will have to sell
'their industrial holdings. According to action by the Senate
on Monday of this week, the Estate will be given a five year th
period to divest themselves of one investment or the other ce
in the event they are ruled against. C
UNFAIR HEARING Gu
The Senate is acting on the advice and recommendations
of the Senate Banking Committee which makes studies of
all such matters.
We contend that the Estate did not get a fair hearing,
even though the chairman, Senator Robertson of West Vir-
ginia made a point of stating that the two days given the to
Estate to present its case was "more than we have given any by
other party in such proceedings". The fact is that Senator ti
Robertson was the only member of the several member com-
mittee who heard the entire Estate testimony. Senators o0
Bennett of Utah and Proxmire heard a large portion of the
testimony, but all of the other members of the committee si
were conspicuous by their absence. Senator Muskie of
Maine spent about 30 minutes in the hearing room as did B
Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and Williams of Mary- h
Senator Robertson made several points of asking those
testifying to summarize their testimonies and enter their
statements to the committee for study by its members. We
do not believe that that committee members would be inter- A
ested enough in knowing What the Estate had to say to read G
it, if they would not appear in the hearing to listen to tes-
On several occasions the committee attempted to stop I
testimony by FEC Railroad president, Thomas Thornton
when he made charges that the current railroad strike of
the FEC line was the instigator of the attempt to remove
the exemption. Senator Robertson made a point several
times of telling Thornton that the committee was interested h
only in banking and had no interest whatever in railroad e
strikes. Yet an AP news release Monday declared that a n
move bringing exclusion from the banking exemption drew a f
"victory for the railway labor unions which have been a H
principal advocate of the bill's provisions affecting the du-
WRITE YOUR SENATOR
We believe that a break-up of the duPont Estate, for
whatever reason, will have a detrimental effect on this area.
It will affect you and it will affect me. This area was found-
ed, put on its feet, and made into an area where people can
earn a good living by the Estate. They created it from
scratch, so to speak. By virtue of having "created" this
area, they are interested in it interested in the people
interested in their welfare. If the Estate is broken up,
there is no guarantee that their successors in ownership
will be more interested in the people than they are in earn-
ing a dollar. We believe that all will agree the duPonts
exhibit a healthy interest in the people of this area.
One of the most effective pieces of work the people of
Gulf County ever attained was results on purchasing of pro-
perty on St. Joseph's Peninsula for a state park. This was
brought about, to a large measure, by a gigantic letter-writ-
ing campaign by the people of this area favoring its acquisi-

"Thus Saith The Lord"
by REV. BILL GRAHAM
In our study of divorce and mar-
riage we are attempting to cover
every possible situation that may
arise. Last week we shared the
problem concerning a person who
was divorced before he was saved.
The conclusion reached on this sub-
ject was that because this divorce
was before salvation, this Christian
is free to enjoy a Christian mar-
riage with no ill effects on his or
her Christian experience.
In I Corinthians 7:12-16: "But
to the rest speak I, not the Lord:
If any brother hath a wife that be-
lieveth not, and she be pleased to
dwell with him, let him not put
her away. And the woman which
hath an husband that believeth
not, and if he be pleased to dwell
with her, let her not leave him.
For the unbelieving husband is
sanctified by the husband; else
were your children unclean; but
The subject for this week is that now are they hold. But if the un-

Grass Fires Plague

Three grass fires, all on Garrison
Avenue, kept the local firemen on
the job Thursday, Friday and Sat-
urday of last week.
Dry weather and children play-
ing with matches were the cause of
all three blazes.
Thursday afternoon at 4:30 p.m.,
a fire broke out on Garrison Ave-
nue about two blocks East of 20th
Street in the woods. Friday after-
noon at 7:00 p.m. a third grass fire
in the vicinity of the Eighth Street
intersection on Garrison Avenue
sounded the fire alarm. Saturday
morning at 11:30 a.m., a third fire
on Garrison Avenue, near the lo-

for sale and that the City was not
interested in condemning and tak-
ing the property because of the
expense involved. Commissioner
Smith pointed out that he had
made a motion that the City take
the property, but did not get a
second to his motion.
Wade Barrier, Jr., asked that the
City consider maintaining a launch
site at the end of Fifth Street for
pleasure boaters and try to obtain
a site on the Gulf County Canal to
construct a basin for larger boats.
After all the conversation con-
cerning the basin was completed,
Commissioner Smith moved that
the City authorize Mayor Hannon
to contact the land owners and try
to purchase property at the end of
Fifth Street and the property now
occupied by the boat basin on the
Gulf County Canal. The motion was
seconded by Commissioner Nedley
and Mayor Hannon said that he
would set up an appointment to
meet with the land owners at the
earliest possible time.
