,DOG FLIES BREED IN
DECAYING PEANUT AND
BEACH GRASS LITTER


The dog fly season is again at
-hand, although the editor has not
yet run across any of the pesky
varmints in Port St. Joe. They
are the bane of existence for both
people and livestock in -the vicin-
ity of our beaches in this part of
Florida during August, September
and October. N'dbody had any idea
where they bred, but now it has
been discovered that they breed in
fermenting peanut litter and beach
grasses. ,
Drs. W. E. Dove and S. W. Sim-
mons of the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture laboratory at
Panama City found last year that
hundreds of the pest breed in
small piles of fermenting peanut
litter, around places where' the
vines have been cured for hay or
where peanuts have been picked
and the refuse accumulated. At
the same time they and their co-
workers found -that deposits of
turtle grass and shoal grass along
the beaches where they were not
submerged by tides also bred thou-
sands of the flies.

a highly trained orthopedic sur-
geon, assisted by Mrs' Susie Spen-
cer, state consultant for the Flor-
ida crippled children's commission

one having a child crippled in any
manner that has not already been
cared for, is urged to contact the

C. G. Costin Will Act As Liaison
Officer and Marc Fleischel Jr.
Will Handle Publicity

B. B. Conklin was named roll
call chairman for the 1941 Red
Cross membership drive for Gulf
county at a meeting of the Gulf
county chapter held Wednesday
evening's at the health unit. The
meeting was presided over by
Robert Bellows, chapter chairman.
Robert Stancil, national field work-
er for Florida, was present at the
meeting and offered helpful sug-
gestions.
C. G. Costin was appointed as
military and naval: welfare chair-
man (liaison officer), and his duty
will be to keep in touch with the
boys at army and navy camps and
with their parents. Marc Fleischel

stations in the county. Mr. Hunt
stated that eight first aid classes
have completed their courses and
that two are now in progress, and
that 101 certificates have been is-
sued to date, 29 of these beingfli-
structors', certificates. "' %

LOCAL DEALER PREDICTS
DRASTIC CHANGE IN TIME
PAYMENT PLAN ON CARS

W. O. Anderson, local Ford dis-
tributor, yesterday, stated that if
the proposed curb by President
Roosevelt is placed) on installment
credit, it is his opinion that pur-
chasers of new and used automo-
biles will be required to make
larger down payments than in the
past, possibly up to 50 per cent,
and the time payment plan will
probably be limited to 12 months
on used cars and 18 months on
new cars.
He unges those who are contem-
plating buying a new or used car
to do so now, as the curb on in-
stallments will not effect contracts
already made.

Second of Band Sponsors
Club Dances To Be Tonight

The Band Sponsors club, for-
nerly the Band Boosters club, Is
sponsoring another dance tonight
n the Centennial building. This
lance, the second of a series to be
given for the benefit of the band,
shouldd prove to cb a very enjoy-
hble one for all.
The last dance was a trenen-
Ions success. The Royal Southern-
ers orchestra, directed by Howell
-Tampton, furnished music from
:30 until nearly 2. The crowd en-
oyed the music so, they requested
he orchestra to play another
hour, and they had- intended to
top at 1 o'clock.

ured at the LeHardy Pharmacy

HOW ABOUT A FAIR EXHIBIT?
The time-honored competitive exhibit plan
used by the Florida State Fair held each win-
ter in Tampa has been abandoned this year
by the directors and all counties have been
offered tne opportunity to enter on a flat
guarantee basis. We understand the fair as-
sociation will allot $80C and a booth to each
county desiring to participate.
As far as we know, Gulf county has never
had an exhibit at the fair, mainly due to the
fact that in previous years cash prizes have
been offered for the best displays, making it
a gamble to each county whether or not it
would be able to get back at least a portion
of the cost of the display. However, with an
$800 guarantee there is no reason why every
county in the state should not be represented
at this year's fair. We are of the opinion
that this move on the part of the directors is
a wise one, and will just about double inter-
est in the exposition.
We suggest that our county commissioners
immediately atuhorize County Farm Agent J.
B. White to make preparations for such an
exhibit. We feel sure that Gulf county can
make a creditable showing with the guaran-
tee offered by the fair association, aid we
hope that the commissioners will take advant-
age of the proposition.

&eep smiling!


FUTURE AIR SERVICE
Florida is rapidly being covered with first-
class airports and every city of any import-
ance now has such facilities, either under-the
defense program or on its own volition.
Today air travel is almost as common as
traveling by car or bus, and eventually the
greater part of our mail will be carried by
plane, and when that day comes-and it isn't
so far in the future-the cities that have es-
tablished airports will be the first chosen to
get air service, both mail and passenger.
While Port St. Joe isn't in vital need of
an airport right now, it will need one within
the next few years to keep up with the times.
\We don't know what ever became of the
idea, but when everybody was so enthused
over the chamber of commerce and big plans
for development of the city were being talked,
a committee was appointed to develop plans
for a combined land and seaplane port some-
where on the bay. Those plans, like a lot of
others, somehow became lost in the shuffle
and nothing more has been heard of them.
It might be a good idea to dig them up,
brush the dust off of them and see what can
be done about developing an airport.

We notice from the exchanges coming to
our desk that various types of instruction
classes, such as welding and boat-building,
have been formed in counties over the state
under the national defense training program.
How come Gulf county isn't in on this pro-
gram ? Undoubtedly there are plenty of young
men who would go in for this type of in-
struction.

'A Sa/itd


They were lined up three deep
at the stocking counter clamoring
for supplies of silk or nylon stock-
ings large enough to last for six
months or perhaps longer.
As one woman near me said:
"There's no telling what will hap-
pen, and-the only way to be sure
is to have plenty on hand."
To be sure of what, I won-
dered? Of comfort? There was a
time, and not so many decades
ago, when women wore cotton
stockings to keep their ankles
warm and diry, and there is no
threat of a cotton shortage.
To be sure of smartness? If a
few hundred well-dressed women
begin wearing cotton stockings
this fall or winter, they'll soon be
smart enough to suit the rest of
us. Or if they should prefer to go
bare-legged or wear socks as col-
lege girls do, why this will be "the
thing" to do. Perhaps before long
we'll be looking back on the silk
stocking era with that tolerant
smile we used when looking at
pictures of hats worn in our moth
er's youth!
An acceptable good looking sub-
stitute for silk stockings will be
availabel if the need for it arises,
just as substitutes for aluminum
are now being used. There's only
one thing that matters these long
sunny August days. That is to keep
ourselves at maximum efficiency


as we concentrate on defense pro-
duction-as we build the arma-
ments that will make America
strong enough to resist any possi-
bility of attack, If the silk and ny-
lon ordinarily used for stockings
-re needed for defense production
there isn't a woman in this coun-
try who wouldn't vote to have
them used for that rather than to
have more silk s-tockings for her-
self.
We've been spoiled, by the ver-
satile, efficient manufacturers of
this country, who have given us
such a wealth of useful and beau-
tiful things that we had come to
,elicve !lie:'e could never be an
end to them. Nowhere in the world
have women taken luxuries for
granted as we have here. But now
we're getting down to brass tacks.
We're learning that it takes raw
materials as well as machines and
skill to give us the things we're
used to. such as automobiles and
kitchen utensils-and silk stock-
ings. If those raw materials are
needed for something more vital,
then we may have to do without
-ome of the things we're used to-
for a while.
We're also discovering that there
is something more important to us
than our personal appearance-
something more precious than
comfort-that is the strength and
welfare of our country. So whethw
