The fire department was called
out about 7:30 Tuesday evening to
quell a blaze in the Manasco home
on Eighth Street which started
from a kerosene water heater.
The Manascos were eating sup-
per when one of the boys opened
the door to the back porch, where
the water heater was situated. As
he opened the door, a billow smoke
swirled into the room, which was
the first the family knew that they
had a fire in their laps.
The entire porch was burned in-

rebuild it entirely. He could not
place an estimate on the damage.
Howeve,', he's not too put out over
it, since he had an insurance policy
with Frank Hannon.

To Trap Quail
Will Move City Dwellers To
Wild Areas To Improve
The welfare of Florida quail has
become of paramount interest to
residents and visitors alike, who
have viewed with great concern the
proposed quail trapping program of
the Florida sportsmen and the state
game commission quail specialist.
Scheduled to begin immediately
-upon the end of the quail hunting
season, the quail traps will be fur-
nished by the state game and fresh
water fish commission. The plan is
to issue traps to all sportsmen's
clubs whose members desire to par-
ticipate in trapping city and subur-
ban quail for transportation to
fields which will provide the na-
tural habitat for these little game
birds, and which, from their city
locations, is too far distant for. them
to travel on their own.
Two years research by field offi-
cers of the game commission shows
that the quail breeding in suburban
and city areas in central and south
Florida have degenerated through
interbreeding to a sub-species of
the original Florida quail.*Only in
the northern sections of the state
where the quail are still traveling
the piney woods are the birds of
normal size and weight.
Purpose of capturing the quail
and shifting them from one area
to another is to ingest the stock of
the strong and heavy breed of quail
throughout the birds in the entire
state, thereby improving the qual-
ity and abundance of these little
game birds which once were a de-
pendable winter supplement to the
native food supply.
Unlike domestic poultry, the quail
thrives best when not in captivity.
However, they are highly appreci-
ated by farmers for their aid in
cleaning the fields and gardens of
weed seeds, which is their first
preference and comprises approxi-
mately 75 per cent of the diet. Sec-
ond in their preferred diet are in-
sects, which they reduce to a mini-
mum in their foraging areas. They
appreciate frequent supplemental
feedings of any kind of grain, and
almost every farmer will scatter a
little of his chicken feed for these
birds to keep them working over
his gardens and fields.
The year-long effort of 'sports-
men, cattlemen and farmers to rid
their surrounding territory of ene-
mies of the quail has met with an
appreciable degree of success and
was a forerunner to the present en-
deavor to replenish the woods and
fields with new families of quail.
Florida sportsmen are perhaps
the largest group of classified indi-
viduals who share in an all-out ef-

IT'LL BE A MIRACLE IF HE DOES IT
Truman performed a miracle when he, by his
own individual efforts, got himself elected presi-
dent, but it'll be a greater miracle if he can
fulfill all the promises he made in order to get
himself back in the White House.
During the campaign he promised the farm-
ers increased subsidies for farm products, higher
wages for the working man and lowered prices
to the consumer. ""I'r,, ilSB.
: Now let's look at his program as presented to
congress. He seeks federalized medicine, fed-
eralized education, federalized housing aid, ex-
pansion of social security, extension of federal-
ized river, development and rural electrification,
new warehouses for crop storage, immediate ac-
tion on the St. Lawrence waterway, creation of
numerous new boards and commissions for a va-
riety of things which would add another million
or .so employes to the federal payroll. He wants
to do all this, and more, without increasing the
cost of living!
He solemnly asserts that it is vital to balance
the national budget and reduce the national
debt, and he promises to, do this by imposing
four billion dollars more in new taxes on income
and corporations: However, with the things he
has recommended, as enumerated above, even

A GOOD RESOLUTION
A few weeks ago the 'New Year was greeted
in Port St. Joe with prayer and song and dance.
We said goodby to 1948, extended a welcoming
hand to the Newcomer and exchanged mutual
expressions of hope with our friends that the
New Year would prove happy and prosperous.
At the same time a lot of us gave some thought
to New Year resolutions. Most of us might even
have kept some of 'em, right up to this "late"
date. But if we didn't, there is still a chance to
redeem ourselves right now.
There is one resolution every man, woman and
child should make and keep. It's an easy one. It
entails little or no sacrifice and will give you a
grand feeling-but more important, it will help
bring back to health youngsters you may know,
or have heard of, or perhaps never even knew
existed. M nT .,\,s a i -. '. -
That resolution is simply to "Join the March.
of Dimes." Sit down right now and write a nice
fat check and send it to Hank Campbell, who's
in charge of the drive in Gulf county, for the
dimes, and dollars you give will enable the Na-
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis to re-
build chapter funds exhausted during last year's
polio epidemics, which were the worst in our
