Pure Oil To Drill

On Gulf County

State Held Land


Half Interest In Oil Held By
Board of Education When
Acreage Is Sold

The state board, of education,
meeting in, Tallahassee1 last we6z,
approved a contract with the Pure
Oil Company to act as its agent tu
drilling for oil on 3200 acres 6t
land in Gulf county in which the
board owns one-half the petroleum
rights.
The company will pay the sta"e
25 cents, an acre annually, and one-
eighth of any oil discovered witl
belong to the permanent school
fund which is administered by tne
.board of education..
The land itself, is owned by the
St. Joe Paper Company, but the
state board of education retained
halt the oil interest when it was
sold.
The oil company applied for a
lease of the state's interest, but
Attorney General Tom Watson
ruled t hat reserved petroleum
rights on former school lands
could not be leased. He said', ho,-
ever, that the board could enter a
development contract with oil coua-
panies ion thie, same terms as a
lease'.

Mobile Experiment

Station For County

Will Give Assistance In Develop-
ing Various Agriculturav
Products

County. Agent J. B. White has
been working for some time to
have a mobile agricultural experi-
ment station assigned to Gulf
county by the state department of
agriculture to assist farmers and
stock raisers with their problems.
The way, the unit will operate,
according to Mir. White, is like
this: If a farmer wants to try out
a new product, the unit will do
the work for him, he furnishing
the land and materials; or it a
cattleman wants to seed pasture
land, the unit will supervise the
job and see that it done according
to the best practices.
Establishment of this mobile
unit in Gulf county is quite an im-
portant step forward and should
aid greatly in further development
of agricultural andi stock raising
possibilities.

BANDMASTER LODWICK

PULPWOOD NEEDED FOR WAR, PEACE
With. the. Allies-making advances in all sec-
tors it is natural that some war workers may
become prematurely optimistic and start
looking for jobs with more security.. How-
ever, as our war chiefs have stated, this is
the time when war production counts most,
when any let-down may prolong the war and
cost unnecessary ,American lives.
Pulpwood cutters and producers of Gulf
county and other forest areas are fortunate
in this respect, however. They need not be-
come alarmed at the prospect of an abrupt
end of the war, for their job will continue as
long after the war as that of any industry.
Moreover, there will be no period of unem-
ployment while war machines are reconverted
to peace time manufacturing, and that is one
thing the business men and residents of Port
St. Joe should be thankful for. The St. Joe
Paper Company will continue to operate right
along, ds usual, when the conflict ends.
