Barnett Bros. Show To Come To
Port St. Joe On Percent-
age Basis

The regular meeting of the
Port St. Joe Lions club was held
Tuesday evening at the Black Cat
Cafe, at which time a proposition
was presented by Secretary M. P.
Tomlinson whereby the Barnett
Bros. circus would show in this
city under sponsorship of the or-
ganization, the Lions to get a per-
centage- of the receipts, with a
$50 minimum guarantee. After
some discussion the offer was ac-
cepted by unanimous vote. A com-
mittee consisting of M. K. Hurl-
but, Ralph Swatts and D. G. Mc-
Pherson was appointed to proceed
with necessary details.
At a meeting of the board of
directors, held several days pre-
viously, the club offered to co-op-
erate with the Women's club in
furnishing medicine to the local
health unit in treatment of pre-
vailing diseases among negro'as in
the city.

GAS TAX ISSUE

ASKS


STRUCIIONS ON TWO
POINTS

TALLAHASSEE, Nov. 4 (FNS)
-The constitutionality of special
acts diverting gas tax money to


the use of couilties for other thl
state road purposes and the rig
of counties to continue to part
pate in the distribution of gas t;
money after all the provisions
the general act of 1931 have be(
met, was placed squarely befo:
the supreme court Saturday by t1
state road department.
In its answer, filed Saturday
an action by Jackson couni
against the state comptroller an
the state road department for a
alternative writ in the supreir
court, the road department allege
that Jackson county has receive
to date more than $560,000 froi
gas tax collections and now has
credit of more than $11,000 froi
the same source in the hands
the state treasurer. The answer
shows that this county is entitle
to receive only a total sum c
$555,185.70 under the provision
of the 1931 general act..
The answer sets forth that th
general law of 19i1 provided fo
he return to each county of th,
amount expended by it in the con
struction of state roads and fur
her provided that a sum equal t<
hat amount should be paid int(
he state road department license
und and appropriated to the us(
f the road department for th'1
construction within said county o:
certain specified roads. A special:
ct passed in 1935 diverted sucl:
as tax money allocated for the
construction of the roads desig
ated in Jackson county by the
931 act, for 'other and different
purposes; and that because of this
version none of this money, with
he exception of $17,580.40, has
een used or expended by the road
department for the construction of
uch roads.
The road department asks the
supreme court for instructions on
wo points. It asks if the special
ct of 1935, diverting gas tax
loney for purposes other than
lose specified in the 1931 general
ct, is constitutional. And it asks
Jackson county, which has al-
eady received more than the
nount of gas tax due it under
e provisions of the 1931 general
ct. is entitled to further partici-
ition in the distribution of tax
oney, which under the terms of
e 1931 act, should now be avail-
le for general road purposes.
The decision of the supreme
urt on l-hesl' two points should
ttle the dispute which has been
going in the courts for months
d give our state officials defi-
te instructions for future guid-
ce. It also will enable the road
apartment to determine to' a
ore definite degree how much
money it will have available for
e maintenance of existing roads
d for the construction of addi-
nal roads.

By WILLIAM L. WILSON
Vice-President-at-Large, Florida
State Chamber Commerce
(Reprinted from Times-Union)

The writer of this article was
sent to Florida by the Honorable
A. Mitchell Palmer, alien property
custodian, in 1917 for the purpose
of taking over a German-owned
lumber company which had been
operating in Millville, now part of
Panama. City. In order that the
government might make an inv:n-
tory of the property being seized,
he employed a prominent commer-
cial forester by the name of A.
V1. Howie who had blen doing
forestry work well over the' west-
ern hemisphere.
In- the report Mr. Howie made
was a closing paragraph which
advised the government agency
that had taken over the property
to immediately put modern forest
practices into effect and in order
that there might be a market for

stalled, Mr. Howie advised th:1 in-
stallation of a small pulp mill,
calling attention to the fact that
a similar combination was then
being operated in Bogalusa, La.
This suggestion interested the
writer and his associates in for-
estry and in pulp mill operations
connected with logging and refor-
esting in Northwest Florida.
Though the recommendation o'
Mr. Howie was submitted to
Washington authorities, no favor-
able action was taken, but after
the war was over and the German
property sold, the question of for-

uppermost in the writer's mind.

PROVErvENT IN CULTURE
PRACTICES

Grald D. Cook, chief of the
rest service's timberland di-
.ioisn, in a dispatch from.I Wash-
ngton, D. C., predicts rapid de-
velonpment of the South's forest
products industries as .a result of
new chemical research.
Cook urged the South, however,
to improve its forest culture prac-
tices to conserve timber supply
for such development.
lie said he be;licevd southern
pine would produce newsprintand
provide a new field of activity for
paper mills.
"The chemists have been doing
wonderful things in wood re
search," he said. "I have no doubt
newsprint wil be made in the
South. and fine results have be'a
obtained in the search for pro-
cesses for manufacturing wood
rayon, plastics and other pro-
ducts."
Cool expressed the opinion a
".ethod her said had been devised
by Dr. Charles II. Herty, Savan-
nah, Ga., research chemist, to
manufacture newsprint by a sul-
fite method would prove practic-
able.
The timberland division chief
said four new paper mills and
one plant to make rayon from
wood have been located in the
South during the past year. These,
he said, indicated a steady in-
crease in the number of wood by-
product plants.
Cook said a wood rayon mi:l
was established recently at Fer-
nandina. Fla., and that new paprr
mills have been completed or
were under construction at Port
St. Joe, Fla., Spring Hill, La.,
Savannah, Ga., and Lufkin, Tex.
"Unless the South improves its
forest practices, however, its ma-
t'arial supply will not be main-
tained," he asserted.

that it shall be the duty of the
Marshal to punish forthwith all
slaves found bathing within the
above-described limits, with ten
!aises for the first and 20 for

it was of heln in the formation of
the Florida Forest Servica.
Continuing Appeal
The idea of pulp mil's continued
to appeal, since there was not
m-.uch argument in practicing for-
estry unless it could be dona on a
paying basis. A market was
needed not only for the gum that
flows from the trees and for saw
logs hbt alo for trees which had
been 'exhausted by prior turpen-

of Commerce. The writer was
chairman 'of its industrial com-
m.iteo :which sponsored the p-ss-
age of the tax exemption referen-

ation did not want to wait until
the November election. Represen-
tatives of that company came to
the state chamber industrial com-
mittee and said they would begin
construction of the Panama City
mill inm'ediately upon receiving
certified resolutions from a pre-

commerce and otner civic organi-

S Alab.ma Competitors
Alabama con'm.unities were com-
petitors and they had arranged
matters so that pulp and paper
i'il's would be exempt from tax-
ation when locating in'that state.
Florida had to meet these condi-
tions. The 1929 legislaturee was
about to convene and since a con-
s'itutional amendment was neces-
sary in order to authorize similar
tax exemption in Florida, a bill
for that purpose was prepared for
consideration. This' measure not
only undertook to exempt pulp and
paper mils from all taxation for
a period of 15 years-until 1948-
but also exempted other manufac-.
turing industries for which Flor-
ida seamed well suited ard wlich

-selves in.tlis state. The measure
was adopted by both houses of the
Jogislature and had to take the
usual course of being presented to
the people at a referendum in No-

SPEED TRAP BACKFIRES
Theodore Kupiec of Chicopeo.

across the road in front of his

speeding, but he filled it in a few
minutes later when the first au-

wrecked. It was his son's.
