They have christened their baby
"Admiral" and proudly sailed her
into our port Sunday afternoon.
She is a 70-foot, all steel boat with
an 18 foot beam and is powered
with a 400 h. p. Atlas diesel motor
of the latest type. All auxiliary
equipment, including modern fire-

One of the acts requires a dealer
,to have an established place of
business and to keep books show-

on trade-in, must register it with
the motor vehicle department at
,least ten days prior to its sale.
"The real purpose behind this
act is to protect the public against
defective titles on motor vehicles
brought from outside the state into
Florida," Anderson said. "Many

automobiles or vehicles with defec-

Our Country Right or Wrong
INCOME AND GROWTH
No community in the world can become
prosperous unless there is some source of in-
come. The greater the income, the greater the
Port St. Joe cannot prosper without the
flow of money into its borders. The coin that
comes to live in Port St. Joe becomes a true
workman for the upbuilding of this section.
The money that goes away, like all absentees,
does us no good whatever.
Apply this to local commercial and indus-
trial affairs. An enterprise grows through the
.acquisition of a surplus. If its income exceeds
its expense it prospers, and if the balance is
Sthe other way, it withers away. Towns and
-cities operate under the same rules, no matter
how obscure the application may be.
Per capital wealth does not always mean
.general prosperity, but it certainly insures
'the possibility of that desired state. Consider
*Port St. Joe as one joint enterprise, with all
citizens as stockholders. What each one
spends, away from. home, is money sent away;
, what each one --:1 a' fr.in 1.-.11 il, is money
brought in to offset the other total. If the
money that arrives is greater than that sent
Saway, the civic entity grows, its surplus grows.
If the balance is the other way, the civic
enterprise withers, the balance constantly
dwindels and the word "p-o-v-e-r-t-y" begins
to be written on the wall.
You'd be surprised at the amount of money
that leaves Port St. Joe via the postoffice for
mail order goods that could be bought 'right
here from our local merchants, and you'd also
be surprised at the amount that is spent in
Panama City for groceries, clothing, etc., that
could likewise be purchased right here at the
same prices. And, too, you'd be surprised at
the number of local business concerns that
have their printing. done out of town when
they could get. it right here at home in much
A lot of 'our citizens and business men don't
seem to realize that they should spend their
money in the community in which they earn
it, since those to whom it is paid proceeei to
spend it with others right here and a part of
it comes back to' them in increased business.
OIL IN GULF COUNTY?
With the state geologist's report that the
search for oil in Florida -is shifting from 'the
southern portion of the state to the northern
part, .the talk of oil, or black gold, as Rex
Beach called it, being found in this section is
again going the rounds.
We all know that a considerable ruimiber of
test' wells have been drilled in Gulf and-adjoin-'
iig- counties and some are still in the drilling,
but whether or not any favorable indications
havebeen discovered, we have not heard
Oil sometimes means wealth and sometimes
-means only heart-aches, as the prospect of an
oil boom generally brings vultures as well as
reputable agents of reputtable companies If
oil should be discovered hereabouts, there will
be glib salesmen coming around offering stock
in new companies which, they will explain,
will make the buyers millionaires But don't
buy it unless your banker tells you that he
has bought some first.
If oil should come popping out of the ground
in this section, that will be splendid-if we
keep our' heads. We've been in sections where
there have been oil booms,' and as we said
above, oil can mean heart-aches as well az,
wealth. If it starts to, flow-be careful.
A GOOD PLACE TO, LIVE.
Port St. Joe is a wonderful place 'in which
to live. Living here has so many worthwhile-
advantages than life in more congested areas.
One of the foremost of these is the real, down-
to-earth neighborliness in evidence. Here, a
neighbor means much more than just a per-
son who happens to live next door.
Crime waves and, juvenile delinquency are
two problems unheard of here. Both seem to
be finding root in the more congested area
where conditions provide a better breeding
ground for seeds of this kind to grow to fer-
tility, No better surroundings can be found to
live and raise a family. Growing' children are
early instilled with.the mode.of life practiced
by their parents. In them is born that close-
to-each-other attitude with respect to those
with whom they come in everyday contact.
Believe it or not, this is a quality to .be sought.
So many cities are devoid of warm feelings
toward their fellow humans so easily engen;
dered in a community such as ours.
, In a world so often using the ,gauge of
worldly riches as a measuring stick, such
homey things as the brand of neighborliness
in evidence here are often overlooked. People
in Port St. -Joe daily are 'presented with kind-
ness and thoughtfulness oi the part of neigh-
'bors, which no amount of money could pur-
chase. Youth cannot buy human sympathies and
feelings. They are not for. sale here either, but
they are given, freely and unstintedly, with a
pride that renders ,them of inestimable value.
Comes to mind the remark of Bill Ebersole a
few weeks back just before, he left .to work in
the new paper mill;at 'a.. -.n: "Editor Bill, I
hate to leave Port SIt. JI .;, l in the ten years
1 have been here I've made more real friends
than (Aver before in my life." We predict he'll
Taken by and large, noil finer people can be
found anywhere. The expression "the salt of
the earth" must originally have been intended
to describe the people of Port St. Joe. They
possess certain fine innate sensibilities too of-
ten' lacking in inhabitants of other communi-
ties. The little things iin liuman relations which
make life more worth the living abound among
our people. .
So many kind and neighborly acts go un-
noticed here. They are more or less taken for
granted and are passed off as being nothing
out of the ordinary. They are so commonplace
as to be unnoteworthy. In this simplicity lies
deep down, honest appreciation which does not
appear on the surface. But an .understanding
without words exists with a sweetness sel-
dom found anywhere.
* There is a world of difference between gen-
erosity of the pocketbook and generosity .t
the heart. One can give from a filled pocket-
book without giving anything else. But when
one gives of the heart also, the meaning is
multiplied. Port St. Joe has always been noted
for going "over the top" in all worthwhile
charity drives, the Recd Cross, infantile paraly-
sis, cancer, USO, etc., and this isn't because
the, people had the' money to give, for niany
,gave more than their pocketbooss would al-
low, but because they knew of the need for
tle funds and they knew of the good their
dollars would do in helping the unfortunate
and the needy.
If a more hospitable, neighborly and gener-
ous bunch of folks live anywhere else than in
Port St. Jot, we would like to know it, for
that, too, would be a good place in which to
We are told that all of us should do at least
two things every dlay that we heartily dislike
to do. Most people do the two things-every
morning they get out of bled and every night
they go to bed.

yuh know, a lotta signs seem to
pint to high places. Fer years our
guvamint- has sed: "Brother, you
do this or you do that or you don't

to is you and your Uncle Josephus.
So iffin the guvamint kin git
bossy and sassy and take a push-
around attitude, how kum other
folks can't catch on and and also
d.o likewise? They kin-and do.
That's how I deduce it, and iftiin
I'm jalke on my itheery, then they is
a cure fer our :bad manners. Let
them folks heading' our guvaminhi

And goibn' further into my re-
search, it's the North mor'n the-
South that is needin' a example.
I've lived South and I've lived
North. The North keeps a-harpin',
superior-like, 'bout making' laws to
help the South-and uplift us'ns
down Aere. But iffin the South had
the same 'bump of conceit and

Pansies for Next Spring
Should be Sown Now
Pansy plants such as are sold
in flower in early spring may be
grown quite easily by the gardener
who has a cold frame. The seed
is sown in late summer in a seed
bed which can be shaded and wa-
" Seed of one of the giant strains
should be obtained if one wants
large flowers. If small flowers are
preferred, the sq-called tufted or
Scotch pansies will do better. Vio-
las may also be given the same
treatment. All Dansies are mem-
bers of the viola family, but the
name pansy -is applied to those
which have "faces."
If you have a seed bed made of
fine soil shaded with a canopy of
cheesecloth or lath, and which can
be watered, sow the seed in rows.
If you have no such seed bed pre-
pare a flat shallow box full of sifted
soil in the usual manner and sow
the pansies in that. It can be placed
in a shady spot and kept well wa-
tered until the seedlings appear.
In sowing spread the seed thinly.
.Mix sand with it if necessary to
prevent overcrowding. If the seeds
are too thick it will be difficult to
disentangle the roots of the seed-
lings when time comes to move
them. As soon as the seeds sprout
they should be given all the light
possible and plenty of fresh air.
Do not let them dry out. Protect
them from the mid-day sun.
When the seedlings have made
their first rough leaves they should
be transplanted to other flats,
where they have more space, or to
the cold frame. Florists usually
move them to flats where they are
planted 2 inches each way; this is
called "pricking out." They are
allowed to grow here until they are
small sturdy plants. The amateur
may cut short this procedure and
move the seedlings directly from
the seed bed or first flat to the cold
Soil in the cold frame should not
Liquor Health Law
New sanitary, .laws affecting
liquor and beer dispensaries' are
being enforced by the state bever-
age department in co-operation
with the Gulf county unit of the
state board ot health.
All establishments which serve
intoxicating" drinks are subject to
the same sanitary laws as restaur-
ants. In measures passed by the
1947 legislature, special health re-
quirements are set forth, making
it mandatory for liquor establish-
ments to follow rules covering
cleanliness of utensils, property,
water, wash rooms, and the dispo-
sition of sewage and garbage.
When a sanitary inspector finds
a place which does not conform to
the health code, the inspector noti-
fies the bar operator of the dis-
crepancy, allowing him necessary
time to/make repairs and improve-
Non-conformance would leave the
bar operator open to action by the
.beverage department, which has
power to revoke licenses.

be overmanured, but should be
light and friable ani reasonably
fertile. The plants should be set
in rows, 4 inches apdrt in the rows,
and 6 inches between the rows. Let
the plants grow in the open through
the fall until the ground begins to
freeze. Then fill up the cold frame
with dry' leaves and cover it with
the sash or boards. In severe
weather the sash can be covered
with `straw mats or any such cover-
ing, but this is not usually needed.
In the spring as soon as frost
begins to come out of the ground,
the leaves should be tak'n off the
pansy plants and the sash put on
the frame. The management from
now on is the same as any other
planting in the. spring. The pansies
will bloom under the glass much
earlier than they would outdoors,
and you will have pansies to set
out in the border when the tulips
-begin to bloom.
