SPEAKS IN ST. JOE







.". ,


Caldwell Speaks

Here Tuesday

REVIEWS F'IVE-YEAR: RECORD
IN WASHINGTIN AS
CONGRESSMAN

Port St. Joe turned out strong
Tuesday afternoon to hear Millard
Caldwell review his five-year
record in Washington as our rep-
resentative in congress.. He was
given rapt attention by his audi-
ence, which was keenly interested,
and every indication was that the
crowd was with him 100 per cent.
Caldwell was met at the Monu-
ment by a large motorcade and
escorted into the city where he
was greeted att the postoffice by
the Port St. Joe school band.
In his five years in office, Mr.
Caldwell has worked hard and ef-
fectively, proving his ability to
get things done, and has gained
the good will of his associates in
Washington. He knows how to
work with congress and the gov-
ernment departments. He is a
member of the committee on ap-
propriations-the most powerful
committee in the house. This is
the first time a member of con-
gress from Florida, in either the
house or senate, has ever been a
member of that committee.
Through the untiring efforts
and influence of Congressman
Caldwell, much has been done for
Gulf county, and Port St. Joe in
particu ar, and it is fitting that we
should roll up an overwhelming
majority for him in this section.
A strong public endorsement will
strengthen his position with the
administration and enable him to
be of greater service to this dis-
trict.
-----------
CANDIDATES MUST SHOW
EXPENSES OF CAMPAIGNS

Candidates for all state and
county offices must file their sec-
ond campaign 'expense. statements
with either the secretary of state
or the clerk of the circuit court
between today and midnight Sun-
day.
Gulf County Cler J. R. Hunter
asks that statements which are to
be filed in his office be in his
i"ands by tomorrow, as he does
not want to open his office Sun-
day.
Candidates who will be chosen
by Gulf county voters must file
their statements wth Mr. Hunter
at Wewahitchka. The secretary of
state will receive statements from
candidates who get votes from
more than one county.

age by the army engineers and

MARCH IS BLOODY

MONTH FOR STATE

76 PEOPLE KILLED AND 2500
INJURED DURING
PERIOD

March was truly a bloody month
for Florida judging from traffic ac-
cidents. Seventy-six people were
killed in March. which is the larg-
est fatality list Florida has ever
had during any month except De-
cember. Practically no county es-
caped.

SUNNY STATE OIL

COMPANY OPENS

STATION IN ST.JOE


MILLARD CALDWELL


Hours Modern Equipment Which
Enables Them To Give Com-
plete Service To Public

Expressing the confidence they
have in the present and future of
Port St. Joe. the Sunny State
Oil company, with home offices in
Panama City, today formally open
their new super-service station
on Monument avenue at the rear
of LeHardy's drug store. The new
station houses a modern setup of
'equipment which enables them to
give complete service to all de-
mands of the motoring public.
They are able to give complete
specialized lubrication, washing,
greasing, battery and tire service
in addition to carrying a complete
line of petroleum products, acces-
sories, batteries, tires and tubes.
The Sunny State Oil company iS
a small but progressive company
which was organized by George
Logue and started its operation at
the marine terminal in Panama
City. They have made rapid prog-
ress under Mr. Logue's manage-
ment and have always stressed in
their operations t:eir motto of
"Quality. Service and Savings" to
the motoring public.
Wilton Eiland will be .in charge
of the sale of pero:eum products.
tires, batteries and accessories. He
has a very pleasing personality
and is equipped to render courte-
ous and efficient service.
John Beasley, who has been em-
ployed in setting up and operating
the Alemite systems of lubrication
for the past three years, will be
in charge of the lubrication and
service department. Mr. Logue
states that they expect to special-
ize in lubrication service, and he
believes Mr. Beasley is entirely
capable of taking care of the
needs of the modern automobile.
Mr. Logue advises that he in-
tends to market only the best
products in the various lines that
he handles. This station will
draw its petroleum products from
the marine terminal of the Sunny
State Oil company at Panama
City.


TWO SHIPS BRING

CARGOES TO MILL

DELIVER 2,803 TONS OF SALT
CAKE FROM GERMANY AND
45C00 BARRELS FUEL OIL

Two ships tied up at the St. Joe
Paper company dock this week
with cargoes for the mill.
The Ipswich, of the Wateiman
Line. tied up Sunday with a cargo
of 2800 tons of salt cake from
Germany, and the S. S. Henry M.
Dawes docked yesterday with 45,-
000 barrels of fuel oil from Port
Arthur, Texas.
Port St. Joe is again taking her
place in the scheme of things as
a port of entry, and soon we may
expect to see vessels from all
parts of the world tying up here
to unload and take on cargoes.

WHY CLAUDE PEPPER?

We believe that Claude Pepper should be
returned as United States senator because he
has all the necessary qualification for the
job and has already demonstrated his abil-
ity.
He is young, and if returned to the senate
through the years he will gradually be
clothed with greater and greater authority,
for it is only through seniority that senators
attain positions of high authority in the up-
per house. With the start that Claude now
has it would be a big mistake to replace him
and no such step should be considered unless
be has proven inadequate-and that has not
been the case.
Claude Pepper is aggressive, intelligent, a
hard and conscientious worker, and has dem-
onstrated his loyalty to the state that sent
him to the senate. His record in the senate
has been of unfailing loyalty to the Demo-
cratic party and to the ideals of the South.
Claude Pepper has been good to Gulf
county, and to Port St. Joe in particular, and
we can demonstrate our appreciation in no
better way than to give him an overwhelm-
ing majority at the primaries May 3.
While we do not always agree with Mr.
Pepper-there ain't no sich animule as a can-
didate who can please all--he has worked
and voted for most of the things we believe
in, and on a few questions has taken a posi-
tion opposite to our stand. But that is to be
expected. It would be a poor excuse for a
senator who would never disagree with this
newspaper or any other newspaper, and it
would be a poor exucse for a newspaper that
did not, from time to time, fail to approve
t:he actions of its district representatives in
various offices.
We want the best man available to repre-
sent us in the United States senate, a man
to hold the seniority prestige already gained,
a man who will be in position to ask favors
on Capitol Hill-and in order to get this man
in Washington we should return Claude Pep-
per to the senate.


WINGS AND SUBS

Perhaps the greatest dangers to civiliza-
tion, aside from the natural quarrelsomeness
of the human race, are airplanes and subma-
rines. The wars in China and Spain make
it clearer than ever.
Swift war planes can bomb cities and ships
from a height so great as to elude defensive
firing and make them unrecognizable from
the' ground. Submarines moving in similar
secrecy under water can discharge their mur-
derous topedoes against helpless ships and
escape. Apparently there can be no security
against either of these modern forms of at-
tack.
If our mechanized civilization, in this age
of steel, is to destroy itself, it will be largely
through the use of these weapons.
And such weapons will probably be used
as long as there is no international authority
able to restrain national lawbreakers. St.
\uii.i-tine R.ecord.

tires.


FIFTY YEARS OF SERVICE

Florida agriculture has been through a suc-
cession of controlling conditions. Changes
came about because of climatic, economic
and political causes. Farming as it was prac-
ticed during the British occupation differed
radically, for instance, from that which had
been followed by the Spanish mission fathers.
Annexation of the territory to the United
.tates brought further modifications con-
ccrniinog criops and methods. Plantation life,
which becai-me domiinant ,before the War Be-
tween the States, largely chased to exist
thereafter.
Research as the basis for better farming
practices, conducted jointly under state and
federal direction, is now in its 50th anniver-
sary yeaT. Florida Agricultuial Experiment
Station activities, depended upon for infor-
imation on a multitude of subjects by farmers
numbering many thousands, had their humble
beginnings at Lake City in 1888. Removal
to Gainesville occurred during 1906.
Institutions do not live and grow for five
decades unless they render helpful service to
some important interest. Agriculture ever
has been the underlying cause for prosperity,
in Florida no less than elsewhere. Contri-
butions thereto of a value beyond calculation
have been made by this outstanding rural re-
search agency.
In celebrating the 50th birthday of the
state agricultural experiment station farmers
and growers will be given opportunity to re-
call the assistance it rendered them on in-
numerable occasions, which in many cases
they have at least temporarily forgotten.
No doubt, there has developed also a bet-
ter understanding of the far-,-caching scope
of the experiment station system, as demon-
strated in its present work.


THE WAY OF DICTATORSHIP

One of the outstanding lessons the world
has learned from dictatorships is this: No
dictator can force himself into power and
stay there so long as his people retain free
speech and free, uncensored newspapers.
Ilitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and all of their
lesser imitators, learned that. But now Hit-
ler, fresh from his Austrian conquest, is ir-
ritated by comments of newspapers in free
countries. So he proposes International
treaties establishing official government
controll of all newspapers. What he means
is this: "You see that your newspapers say
only nice things about me and I'll do the
same for you."
Such control of newspapers already is in
effect in Russia and Italy, but such a treaty
with the United States would require amend-
ment of the American constitution. And if
we know our people, the balloting against
such an amendment would be so overwhelm-
ing there would be no necessity to count the
returns.
This plan of Hitler's would doubtless suit
:ome Americans. A United States senator
aid in a radio speech the other day that 98
*)er cent of America's city newspapers ire
'iased. What he really meant was that they
lid not agree with him.
Hlow different he is from Voltaire, who
:aid: "While I might not agree with what
you say, I shall defend to the death your
right to sav it!"
Americans doubtless will agree with their
own Constitution and with Voltaire rather
'.han Hitler and the senator, for down the
Hitler-senator road lies dictatorship.


Hitler is reported interested in a new
title. But of course every large-scale real
estate operator realizes the importance of
good titles.---Tallahassee Democrat.

Stardust and

Moonshine

By The Other Fellow


The other evening I found my-
self in a violent after-dinner ar-
gument on the subject of art. I
have long held that art flows out
of utility, that form follows func-
tion, and that the best way to
make an artistic chair is to first
aim to make a comfortable chair.
A sailing ship is not designed
for beauty, yet it is all beauty,and
the better it is built for sailing
the better it looks. A mikado lo-
comotive is designed for utility,
yet as an expression of sheer
power it is a work of art.
Looking at things from this
angle, one discovers beauty in
steam hammers, punch presses,
locomotive cranes, linotypes, car-
penters' saws, plows, bridges,
railroad terminals and concrete
mixers.
This view annoys many people,
and this man I was talking with
said hotly: "If that's your idea of
beauty. then you can satisfy
yourself by walking through the
paper mill. I must admit that
when I want to look at beauty I
go to an art museum."
If he felt sorry for me, I felt
equally sorry for nim, because I
know he doesn't go to a museum
twice-a year-and neither do I,
but I do have pleasure every day
as I walk along the streets of
Port St. Joe or over the country
fields surrounding the city. The
sweep of the beach, the grace of
a towering cypress and the burly
quality of a ten-ton truck are
stimulating, and in their own way
are just as satisfying to me as an
etching, a poem or a painting.
Even in so-called pure art, form
follows function just as surely as
in the mechanical arts. An artist
is superior in proportion to his
ability to produce an effect with
.he greatest economy in effort.
The absence of superfluous lines.
daubs or words are the distin-
guishing quality of great works of
art.
Why people should close their
ayes to the natural beauty that i.;
around them, and make tiresome
pilgrimages to museums where
they may look upon labeled
beauty, is not clear. I should be
among the last to scort the mas-
terpieces that are assembled in
our art museums. They deserve to
be guarded and sheltered but
anyone who thinks there is no ar-
tistic expression, in the everyday
'ife of the human race must have


blind spots in both eyes.

A reader writes in and wants to
know: "Why do 'high noon' wed-
dings differ from other noon wed-
dings?"
That's a stunner, and after con-
sulting all my reference books on
various subjects, including "The
Rise and Fall of the Roman Em-
pire," I reach the following con-
clusions:
They do not. It is merely
a term that has come into popu-
lar use because of the following
pertinent facts:
The sun is high, having secured
an early start on food and cloth-
ing prices, although the latter are
staging a game Dattle and are
sure to "show."
The groom (poor chap) is in
high fettle, even if he did cut up
high jinks at the party last night.
His friends hold him in high es-
teem, but are higiiy amused at
his high state of nervousness. His
father thinks it is high time that
he settle down.
The other seven-eighths of the
all-star cast, while apparently
calm, shows a high-toned color
(although this may be due to
high-priced cosmetics). Her beauty
is of a high order and she
possesses a lovely, high soprano
voice. Her father thinks it high
time she transfer her expense ac-
count to younger shoulders.
If the groom looks prosperous,
the minister's hopes run high, and
if both camps are prosperous,
there will be a plentiful sprinkling
of high hats in the ringside seats.
And now I think it's high time
I closed this column.

SNAPSHOTS
By JAMES PRESTON


With the administration's new
::;cnding spree about to be
launched, the customary mad
scramble that goes with every
wew dumping of government funds
.:eio the relief trough is on in the
i pital.
The WPA and PWA are fight-
it out behind the scenes for
Ic major slice of the new money.
;ate and city delegates are put-
ino their oars in with both the
WPA and PWA just to be sure
that their pet projects and con-
stituents will not be neglected
when the treasury spigots are
turned.
Observers say the WPA has the
upper hand in the struggle for the
simple reason that with its sys-
tem of direct relief, the spending
benefits will be more quickly felt
by those for whom the benefits
are intended. PWA, on the other
hand, is handicapped because
three months at least would be
required before projects could be
started and the spending felt. And
this is an election year, the spec-
cators remember.
Whoever the winner in the
.iany-sided struggle, however, the
loser is, as usuar, already de-
:lared and resigned to his fate-
the taxpayer of both this genera-
tion and several generations yet
to come.

There are indications that the
eight over who is to dish out the
new billions may oe slightly pre-
'alture. A coalition bloc is forn -
ing in cosgr'ess to have some say
upon whether a new spending
preee is started. As in the su-
,)'rele court and reorganization
)att:cs, they intend to test the
sentiment of the country by dis-
cussing the spending appropria-
tion thoroughly ane giving the
people a chance to write to their
senators and congressmen.
The issue will be, of course,
whether r a great new deluge of
billions will Irelp or hinder perm-
anent recovery. The opponents
will point out that billions of dol-
lars have been poured out in re-
cent years without building sub-
stantial re-employment. Mean-
while, in Great Britain, for in-
stance. greater recovery has been
iiad without their spen'dtlng. As one
*crson put it. we have spent thir-
.eon billion dollars to keep thir-
teen million people unemployed.

S.)eaking of spernding, inti-
;ates of one of th'c biggest spend-
crs of the current official govern-
.:.:t family,. are telling this story
'0tn the ge.ntleman:
During a recent vacation in
Florida he sauntered into a palm-
:caer's estfblishmenLt to have his

Candidate Sholtz Hits Law Governor Sholtz Signed


MISREPRESENTS OLD AGE
PENSION LAW REQUIRE-
MENTS


Ex-Governor Sholtz is making
at least six serious and material
misrepresentations on a law spon-
sored by his administration, pass-
ed by a legislature during his
term, and approved by him as
governor.
We refer to the so-callied "lien"
or "mortgage" portion of the So-
cial Security law, or State Wel-
fare law.
For political purposes Dave
Sholtz is literally frothing at the
mouth about this law. In a short
space of time he makes at least
six material misrepresentations
about it, plainly seen by anyone
who will listen for a few minutes
and then look up the facts. They
are as follows:
1.
Ex-Governor Sholtz charges the
Cone administration with being
responsible for the law. The fact
is that the section which the ex-
governor is denouncing was Sec-
tion 18 of Chapter 17,477, Laws of
'iorida, Acts of tile Legislature
of 1935, being a law known as the
1935 Social Welfare Act of Flor-
ida, approved by Dave Sholtz as
governor of Florida on June 7,
1935. The original section as ap-
proved by Governor Sholtz reads:
"If any person who has been
supported at the public ex-
pense dies leaving an estate, in
such case the state or county,
or both, shall be entitled to have
a claim enforced to the extent
of the public assistance pro-
vided by the deceased. In the
event, however, that there re-
mains a widow, Gr minor chil-
dren, or others liable to become
public charges, then this claim
shall be waived. Such sums as
may be raised from the seizure
o: property or the collection of
the amounts due from living
per. ons shall be used to reim-
burse the state or political sub-
division from which such monies
were disbursed."
Governor Sholtz approved this
section of the law, and the entire
law, and it never occurred to him
to utter one word in criticism un-
il! ihe became a candidate for the
United States senate.
SAYS HOMES CAN BE
TAKEN AWAY
2.
In his speeches around the
state Dave Sh..1-::, has been' rep-
resunting that under this law
?.o:-es coul:l be ta:xen away from
people. 'he truth is that nearly
every person whio owns a home in
Florida is the head of' a family,
and under t!re Constitution of
i lorida the Iho io-stea1, which is
ti e home Dpace i" town or coun-
try, and ii$1000 of perIona; prop-
,r:y, de.ceonds to 'ie heirs and
cannot be taken uirt' the Social
Security law, or any other law. In
lact. no law could be passed
-vluiclh would interfere with the
hr-.cstead unless the people, by
l.'optar vote, al.indeled the cou-
stitution. Sholtz is ignoring the
constitutional protection of home-
tcea-'s and is grossly misrepre-
s: .-itng the effect of this law upon
'-o".-esteads in Florida. The truth;
is that very fevw persons in Flor-
ida feedingg old age assistance
owni an estate amounting to more
than their home plac'sand $1000
wv rth of personal property. If
the" don't ov.wn a larger estate
than this, this law couldn't touch
ti':' and does not touch them.
T'h'n Deop-e affected by this law
o;' o few lhat the law might as
well not be on the statute books,
u;: it was put there during the
d'-"'n!stration of Governor Sholtz
-1. approved by him. So far, out
c' n"..rly ,2,0.00 persons put on
1--e roils for old age assistance,
le state welfare board has not
r.d r:c-' e ion to try to enforce this
'ect:'o' one single time.
NMIGFEPr-iESENTS THE
PURPOSE OF QUESTION
S3.
S-ve Sihoitz is g;ro'sly misrep-
:'esi:'ti'" tln ,nurpoFe and the ef-
nc r' c''tion fi c"' the applica-
tion l'unk for old nea assistance.
1 thu',t qIuestion 6 does is to ask
'o :; .i'i"alt .a "'' s.ion, and by


:o do so.
It was an act of simple honesty
for the Cone administration and
the present state welfare board to
put the question on the applica-
tion blank so, that those making
application for old age assistance
night have their attention called
to this law for their own infor-
mation, protection and guidance.
The fact that question 6 was
printed in small type is a mere
happen-so, and does not amount
to a hill of beans, because all the
applications for old age assistance
are gone over carefully with the
old persons who are applicants by
the case-aid workers.
IGNORES CLAUSE
ABOUT WIDOWS
4.
y-':overnor Sholtz is grossly
misrepresenting the law in that
is ignoring the provision in the
aw that if there remains a widow
or minor children lable to become
publicc charges, the claim shall be
*-ived. He is not saying a word
about this in his speeches, but
:his provision was in the law of
1935 and was brought forward in
'he new law passed in 1937. Un-
ier this provision, in addition to
the homestead exemption already
aoi nted out, the law specifically
provides that if there remains a
widow or minor children liable to
become public charges-in other
words dependent-the claim shall
be waived. By the very terms of
'he act the section can not apply
to any grantee receiving old age
assistance who dies and leaves a
widow or minor children depen-
dent or liable to become public
c(thrges.
N"''':-n yo: renemeber that the

BY FEDERAL LAW

EI-Governor Sholtz is grossly
:isi'ecpreselntig the law in that he
;:. using language intended to ad-
,ise his hearers that this, law is
-equired or authorized by the fed-
ural law.
'Th's is noit rue. The federal
:.\w dos not REQUIRE this sec-
..:on.. 'he federal law could prob-
ably not. require is as to state
funds on account of state rights.
The federal law does not even au-
thori2ze it. The federal law could
have something to say about the
federal money that is used in pay-
ing the old age assistance, but
lhe federal law does not even try
to do that. The federal law simply
provides in Section 2 (7) that "IF
the state or any of its political
subdivisions collects from the es-
tate of any recipient of old age as
sista.-'ce any amount with respect
to old ag; assistance furni-Ihcd
him under the plan, one-half of
t'-e net amount so collected shall
be promptly paid to the United
Stater"
The federal law does not author-
ize the state to oll!.ct anything
i'irom' the es 'te-; of old persons
\-"io Irceiv"eI ol; age assistance,
do's not require the etate to make
any such collection, leaves the
state entirely free, but simply
provides that IF the state, by vir-
tue of its own sovereign power,
does make a collection then that
the federal government (which
puts up half the money to begin
with) shall receive one-half of the
collection.
It is probable that congress can
not be persuaded to repeal this
c'Jo 'nd .-c:'oi tbe richi ol
Ijhe Unitcl States to rec',ive its
pr'oportiorn of any coll'plions made
but even if it could be persuaded

property of some old persons, and
that it has resulted in the estates
of some old persons being kept
away from their descendants.
This is utterly untrue because
there is not a single case of such
enforcement by the present state
welfare board anywhere in the
state. As pointed out above, for
the reasons pointed out above,
there are practically no estates in
the state to which this section
woull apply. The state welfare
board up to now has not found
such a case, has not put a lien on
the property of a single old per-
son, has not tried to put a lien on
the property of a single old per-
son, and has not as yet kept the
statc of a single old person from
descending to the heirs of such
old person.
Ex-Governor Sholtz is manufac-
turing his bugaboo out of whole
cloth.
CONCLUSION
We have pointed out above six
serious and material misrepresen-
tations Dave Sholtz is guilty of in
discussing one law sponsoIed by
his administration and signed by
him. All of our statements are
proven by the records. open to
every citizen of t:ie state. Ex-
Governor Sholtz' false charges are
inexcusable and constitute the
cheapest kind of politics.
The Social Security law of 1935
A probplah not perfect. It was a
"onr start in a noble work. The
'- v'~" .,., law of 1937 is prob-
bily, not pi'fect. It is an effort
n further advance a roble work.
The ('coln ittee of citizens who
'rafted the 1925 law; the 82 menm-
'i'rs of' the house and 30 members
of the senate who voted for it; the
o.''e board of social welfare and

The man, be he ex governor, or
what not, who misrepresents any
of these laws or the work of the
house and senate of 1935 or 1937.
or the work of the welfare boards
under the old law or the new law.
is playing the cheapest kind of
cheap politics and is deserving of
the condemnation of every good
citizen.

QUESTIONNAIRE

PINS CANDIDATES

TO TAX PROGRAM

FORM MAILED OUT BY STATE
COMMITTEE WILL PLEDGE
OFFICE SEEKERS

In an endeavor to commit can-
didates for the legislature to a
definite tax program, the state
comn-ittee for Florida tax infor-
mation has mailed out a question-
naire to be presented to candi-
dates.
By signing the questionnaire,
seekers for seats in the legisla-
ture indicate whether or not they
are in favor of tax reduction in
the state.
Nearly every candidate prom-
ises tax reduction, but such prom-
ises do not amount to a hill of
beans unless they are committed
to a definite program-and this
questionnaire, which follows, cer-
tainly will commit them one way
or the other.
The questionnaire:
As a citizen and taxpayer of
this county, I would appreciate
your views on the following tax
questions:
Will you work and vote for
legislation which will (write
'yes' or 'no' after each ques-
tion):
(a) Consolidate the state's ex.
cessive number of boards and
commissions into not more than
12 organized departments, elim-
inating duplicating functions
and excessive employes? ......
(b) Revise budget laws to re-
quire that all departments oper-
ate on a definite itemized bud-
get fixed by the legislature bi-
annually? ......
(c) reduce state expenditures
for state purposes (not includ-
ing social security) to the level
of 1935 or below? .......
(d) Restrict, through laws of
state-wide application, the tax
levying authority of local boards
and commissions? ......
(e) Enact civil service laws
for all public employes, elimin-
ating the extravagant system of
political patronage? ......
While no tax program will suit
avery individual, it is realized that
conditions will go from bad to
worse unless some action is taken,
as Florida taxes are increasing,
and the taxpayer must foot the
bill.
This move on the part of the
state committee seems like a
good one, especially if it will place
men in the legislature who have
definitely pledged themselves in
writing to a tax reduction pro-
gram.

Dr. Charles H. Herty, the gray-
haired Savannah scientist and
chemist whose discoveries' in a
little tin-rooted laboratory in his
back yard resulted in a new $100,-
000,000 pulp and paper industry
for the South and the rehabilita-
tion of Port St. Joe. was honored
at an elaborate banquet in. Jack-
sonville Friday n:git by the
southern division of the American
Pulp and Paper Mill Superinten-
dents' association.
The 50 members attending the
meeting heard the venerable Sa-
vannah scientist declare that in
the past few years, millions of
dollars have been expended for
mill construction to make kraft
pulp and paper from southern
pine.
He predicted that in the near
future a greater expansion will
be seen throughout the Southland,
and he described the expansion
program as not only benefiting
the South by creating jobs and a
new cash crop for the southern
farmer who supplies much of the
pulpwood used in the mills, but
that southern kraft also is raising
freight loadings on American
railroads.
New construction is putting
thousands to work. he said, in the
building and supplies trades. The
whole country is benefiting from
the use of kraft paper for bags,
wrapping paper, packages and
light-weight shipping cartons.
For years Dr. Herty untangled
the chemical mysteries of pulp-
wood in his little workshop, but
today he works in a modern lab-
oratory in Savannah, established
as the Herty Foundation Labora-
tory, of which he is the director,
and Friday night a high tribute
was paid to him by the men who
make kraft products as the re-
sult of his discoveries.
The southern division of the
American Pulp and Paper Mill
Superintendents' association, or-
ganized some years ago. was dis-
banded a few years back because
of the lack of interest and eco-
nomic conditions.
The meeting in Jacksonville
was for the purpose of reorganiz-
ing the division and discussing
problems confronting the superin-
tendents of pulp and paper mills.
Among the new officers elected
at ths reorganization meeting
was A. J. Navarre of the St. Joe
Paper Company, secretary and
treasurer.
