Is Mystified By
Petroleum Consultant Unable to
Fathom. Stand Taken By
Robert C. Wilson, petroleum con-
. sultant in the office of production
management at Washington, D. C.,
said last Friday it was "difficult
to understand" the Georgia legis-
lature's unwillingness to pass en-
abling legislation to permit the
completion of the Southeastern
SPipeline corporation's line from
Port St. Joe, Fla., to Chattanooga,
Tenn., through the state.
He made this assertion before a
house interstate commerce sub-
committee during testimony on a
survey of the petroleum resources
of the United States.
The Georgia senate recently
voted down a proposal to authorize
the pipeline company to lay its
line under highways and railroad
'"It seems fortunate that it is
possible to have such facilities
constructed by private capital if
the legal difficulties can be elimi-
nated," Wilson told the committee.
"It is difficult to understand the
unwillingness of the Georgia legis-
lature to pass the necessary en-
abling legislation in view of the
recent united recommendations of
the president andl the 'ecretaries
of war, navy and the-lfiterior, but
it would seem fhat it must be
based on a lack of appreciation ot
the seriousness of the situation."
Health Unit To
Dr. Lamb Urges All Parents Have
Children Inoculated Against
Smallpox and Typhoid
Dr. R. J. Lamb, director of the
Gulf-Franklin-Wakulla health unit,
states that the health department
is preparing to give every parent
in these three counties an oppor-
tunity to have typhoid immuniza-
tions and vaccination against
smallpox given their children for
At present neither of these im-
munizations are compulsory, but it
is always well to be safe in case
an emergency unexpectedly comes
up. After an epidemic of any dis-
ease appears it is too late then to
get effective resistance, as it is
usually from six weeks to three
months before the immunizations
have reached their maximum de-
gree of protection, so it is always
much better to be safe than sorry.
"I want to discuss my policy of
giving typhoid immunizations,"
said Dr. Lamb. "Public health of-
ficials have found by experience
that after a person has had the
three doses' of typhoid serum given,
the chain of immunization can be
more effectively maintained by giv-
ing then one small dose each suc-
cessive year than by using the old
method of three doses every two
or three years. In giving it this
way, the dose is so small that the
unpleasant reaction that appears
sometimes is almost never notice.
"My advice to parents is that
if your child had the typhoid! shots
last year, tell me so on the request
slip that is sent you, and we will
just give the small dose each year,
then your child will be safe. In
:case they did not get serum .in

length proposed fish and game

The association members were
favorable to the majority of the
recommendations, but do not be-
lieve that there should be a closed
season on black bears and alliga-
tors. They also did not believe the
limit on certain varieties of fresh
water fish should be cut down.
Talks were made by various
members of the association on re-
stocking the county, with quail and

TURNING POINT IN THE WAR?
Yugoslavia's revolt against the country's
pro-Nazi regime, together with Britain's vir-
tual annihilation of the Italian fleet, may
prove to be the first disintegrating crack in
the expanding Axis structure. From de-
mocracy's standpoint, the coup which resulted
in the overthrow of Yugoslavia's prince re-
gent and ministers pledged to Nazi accord,
could not have been better timed. It came
at the peak of Berlin's celebration in honor
of the new Japanese foseign minister, Mat-
suoka. In view of the turn events have taken
in the Balkans it is not hard to imagine the
chagrin of Hitler. Nor is it difficult to visual-
ize Matsuoka's own reactions. Certainly
these new developments, coupled with Brit-
ain's continued successes in Africa, should
cause Tokio to review its position more care-
fully before deciding on "all out" participation
in the war.
On the other hand, Yuogoslavia's determi-
nation to defy Germany may be the spark
that will ignite the fires of revolt against the
aggressor in those countries now groaning
under the Nazi heel.
The war cannot be won in the Balkans,
but the beginning of the end could very well
be effected there. If the Battle of the Balkans
actually takes place, as now seems close to
inevitable, the war will really enter its de-
In any event, Yugoslavia's action, following
that of Greece, sounds a new and inspiring
note of hope in democracy's grim battle
against the forces of depression.

nice trick if. he can do it.
Mr. Tuggle (no relation to Elmer
Tuggle) says he will install his
machine in the riven, tests of the
water having shown collodial gold,
far finer than "float" or "flour"
gold, which can be recovered by
his secret process at a rate of
from two to five cents worth per
ton of water processed.
He explains the source of this
enormous amount of gold by- say-
ing it has been eroding from
Georgia mountains for centuries
and, finding its way into the river.
He claims his machine has been
tested and proved successful. In
fact, he reveals that he already
has extracted $6 or $7 worth of
gold in some of his tests.
When asked if he had been
given government approval for his
machine, Tuggle replied: "Hell, I
ain't askin' the government or no-
body -else to- approve these ma-
chines. I know what they'll do."
