New pulp and paper mills being

Mr. Nieland says. While the mills
will take wood as small as four

he believes it is unwise to cut the
small trees or to clear-cut stands
when they are growing at their
fastest rate, even though most or
the trees may be of pulpwooa
Pulpwood can often be cut from
dense young stands so as to im-
prove the stands and increase the
growth of the remaining trees.
Frequent cuttings at Intervals or
from five to not more than ten
years will yield more wood and
more cash returns tnan clear-cut-

trees can also be cut.
Trees to be left include "round"

and trees with good thrifty

trees under nine inches in diam-

OLD AGE SITUATION IS SERIOUS
Prices of foodstufss, clothing and every-
thing else is going up, not only in Port St.
Joe, but everywhere in. Florida and the na--
tion as a result of the European conflict.
Of course that means something to the
working man who has a family to care for.
But it means a lot more to those old folks
receiving old age assistance from the state,
as many of them have,,only this source of in-
come to support them in their declining
years, and the few cents extra on :this and
that item amounts to considerable in the
And on top of these mounting prices, aid
to the old folks has recently been reduced,
making the amount for most of them inade-
quate to meet even the pressing needs of liv-
ing. In addition, there are at present many
cases pending which, if approved, will tend
to further reduce the pro' rata amounts re-
ceived by the aged.
More money must be secured from some
-source in order to remedy this deplorable
condition and, as is pointed out by the Put-
nam county delegation to the state regisla-
ture, the only way to accomplish this Is
through a special session of the legislature.
To this end a petition is being circulateQ
among members of the legislature requesting[
Governor Cone to call a special session to en-I
act old age pension legislation. Those legis-
lators signing the petition agreeing to attend
at their own expense.
SThis is indeed a wise move, and we trust
that Governor.Cone will issue the necessary
,order, as it will render aid and comfort fb
