RESOLUTION PASSED BY COM-
MISSIONERS WILL FILL
LONG-FELT WANT IF IT
IS CARRIED THROUGH
The board of city commissioners
of Port St. Joe, at a recent meet-
ing, passed a resolution authoriz-
ing the city to file an application
with the Federal Emergency Ad,
ministration of Public Works for
a loan and grant to aid in financ-
ing construction of a hospital.
The resolution designated Mayor
J. L. Sharit and M. Ross Watson
to gather the necessary informa-
tion and data required by the
FEA in such applications.
Should this action go through,
and there seems no doubt but
what it will, a long-felt want in
this section will at last be filled.
At present, and in the past, any-
one requiring hospitalization has
been forced to go to Panama City,
Apalachicola or Marianna, and In
several instances the lack of hos-
pital facilities here has undoubt-
edly been the cause of death of
seriously ill or injured persons
who have been rushed by car to
adjoining cities to be placed in
hospitals. Had there been a hos-
pital here, precious minutes would
be saved in such cases-and these
extra minutes sometimes make
the difference between a winning
and losing battle with the Grim
If such a loan can be secured
.it will be for a long term of years
and will not place a great burden
on the city. In. the opinion-of
many it will be well worth the

FINANCING THE CENTENNIAL
The matter of financing the Centennial
Celebration to be held in Port St. Joe Decem-
ber 7 to 10, next, was the principal topic of
discussion at the celebration committee
meeting held Thursday night of last week.
A number of plans were put forward to
raise funds to finance the affair, and one or
two of them should prove of practical worth.
A few of the committeemen are urging that
everything be presented without cost to the
public, but in our opinion, and we have the
support of the majority of those making up
the various committees, such a plan would
not be feasible as cost of the tentative four-
day program as outlined would come to con-
siderably more than could possibly be raised,
and in that case there would be' nothing to
do but appoint a "begging committee" after
the celebration to visit each business man in
the city and ask .for donations.
It would be nice if we COULD present
everything without cost, but, as pointed out
above, it \-ouhld be impossible. Visitors com-
ing to the city will not object to paying small
admission fees to see the horse races, foot-
ball game, boxing exhibitions or any other
events that may be scheduled, and the pro-
gram as tentatively outlined will furnish a
great variety of free attractions that should
more than offset admissions charged for a
few of the events. But regardless of how the
centennial is financed, the residents of Port
St. Joe should not be compelled to bear the
expense of putting it on.
Let us get it through our heads right now
that this is NOT a Port St. Joe celebration,
but one that concerns the entire state of Flor-
ida. It is true that Port St. Joe will be the
focus of all eyes during the four days, and it
is true that the business men of this city
will reap any small profits that may result
from the celebration, but regardless of these
facts, the whole state should join in whole-
heartedly and do anything and everything
possible to make Florida's 100th birthday an
event of nationwide importance.
SOIL ADDING BILLIONS TO INCOME
Wheeler McMillen, president of the na-
tional farm chemurgic council, writing in the
Sunday American;,has this to say in regard
to solving the American farm problem:
By "farming for our factories" the Ameri-
can farm problem can be solved. More, such
a solution, raising agricultural income and
making farmers larger buyers of manufac-
tured goods, should correct our economic un-
balance. This seems our straightest road to-
ward prosperity for all of us.
Acreage reduction reduces jobs both on
farms and in cities.
Regaining fully our former world markets
seems a vain hope. Our Mississippi valley
cannot be, to its former full extent, the world
granary. Driven by "economic nationalism,"
Europe is plowing 50,000,000 more acres,
chiefly for'grain. Moreover, whereas we for-.
merly grew-and sold-three bales of cotton
for each two bales produced elsewhere, the
opening of new cotton lands has about re-
versed that ratio in recent years.
As for increasing our own consumption as
a nation, we can eat only about so much and
use only about so many clothes.
Yet the "way out" lies in producing more,
not less. "Chemurgy"-teamwork between
agriculture, science and industry-seeks to
bring about greater farm production, but not
merely for our tables or our backs.
To produce for new uses is the plan. To
teach farmers how to grow raw materials
for use in manufacturing. To help industry
work out new methods of using farm prod-
ucts-in many instances as substitutes for
materials now imported.
This will mean, literally, that vast new
wealth, running into the billions, can be
Among a number of new sources of income
developed by scientists, Mr. McMillen points
out that one of the greatest boons to the
South along this line is the method of manu-
facturing paper from southern pine.
A POPULATION PROPHECY
Our country's population, according to a
survey and forecast by the national resources
committee, is approaching its peak. Some 40
years hence, or about 1980, it will reach a
maximum of one hundred fifty-eight million,
at which number it will stand fairly stable
for a while, and then slowly decline. The pre-
diction assumes that the trends on which it
reckons are more or less permanent; that
the decrease in both the birth and the death
rate will continue and that there will be no
considerable change in immigration. Certain
factors now at work may bring us to the
crest as early as 1955, with a maximum of
only one hundred thirty-eight million, as
compared with one hundred twenty-seven
million, five hundred thousand estimated as
the total in 1935. In that case, a net loss of
ten million is expected for the ensuing 25
The national resources committee, whose
report has just been transmitted to the presi-
dent, takes no gloomy view of its figures. In
the nature of things economic, the country's
growth in population could not continue the
pace which it kept from colonial days up to
the closing decades of the last century-a
pace almost unparalleled in the history of the
world. Since then the birth rate has steadily
decreased. But, says the committee, by way
of comment on the change from a growing
to a stationary population, "It may be, oi
the whole, beneficial rather than injurious to
the national life." For, "it insures the con-
tinuance of a favorable ratioof population to
natural resources in tile United States. Each
citizen of this country will continue to have,
on the average, a larger amount of arable
land, minerals and other natural resources at
his disposal than the citizen ol any of the
countries, of! the Old World. This supplies.
the material- basis for a high level of living,
if these resources are used wisely and if cul-
tural conditions are stimulating to initiative
and co-operative endeavor."
The concluding phrase is the most signifi-
cant of all. Whether the calculations of the
social scientists are borne out or upset by the
events of the oncoming decades, it is certain
that only a wise use of our natural resources
and a steady improvement of cultural con-
ditions can safeguard America's future.-At-
Kidnaping has become a regular "business"
in this country owing to lax law enforcement,
slow courts, appeals and technicalities.-Flor-

"That Which Helps Port St. Joe Helps
You" is a mighty good slogan for the busi-
ness men of the city to adopt.
By The Other Fellow
Somehow or other there was a
note of sadness in the news that
'inglig .-Briothers -Barnum and
Bailey Circus-long called "The
Greatest Show. on Earth"-has
folded its big top and, gone to its
winter, quarters in Sarasota.
It is especially sad when we
think of the thousands of children
deprived of a fleeting one-day
thrill of watching the fun-making
clown, or the lien tamer, or the
man on the flying trapeze.
Then, too, there must be a
pretty sad outlook for the fam-
ilies of the 1600 employes who by
.striking put the circus out of busi-
ness and put themselves out of
I have long he;d that all wealth
comes from the soil, and a listing
of farm products nsed, by just one
large manufacturer of automobiles
pointedly illustrates this.
For instance, 195,512 people are
required to grow merely the cot-
ton that is used for upholstery by
the company in a prosperous year.
As interesting as this fact is in
itself, it has more than curiosity
value. It is indicative of the way
in which manufacturers are con-
tinually finding uses for farm

macy. "Isn't business rotten?" he

We .met two more business men
and he asked each one .whether
business wasn't rotten, and each
one .old him they had, nothing to
co ''in of.
Having s.pet most of the mporn-
ing trying to find someone to cry
with him, he finally called it a

showing a considerable increase
over 1937 when the six million dol-

some time in October.
According to the report made
public by D. W. Finnley, commis-

parison of the records for 1937

416,421 tags were sold when the
book's were balanced at the close
of June for this year, which repre-
sents an increase of 10,523 over
the 405,898 tags reported sold at
the same time last year.
Total revenue from the sale of
tags for the first half of this year
amounted to $5,823,154.32, an in-
crease of $228,254.87 over the $5,-
534,899.35 received' by the state

of 1938 was $8,165.80 less than
that received for the first half of
last year, with $159,048.85 being
reported to June 30, 1937, and
