VOLUME XIV FORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1951 NUMBER 25
State Finance Will
Be Top Problem of
Despite Plenty of Issues In Offing,
No Slam-Bang Fight Is
There are plenty of issues ready
for the Florida legislature when it
*convenes April 3 for its 1951 ses-
sion, but few that threaten to pro-
voke the slam-bang fights of some
That's the way it appears to be
shaping up now, but, of course, any
number of things can come up to
change the picture before the law-
-makers meet. And once they get
-underway, some matter to which
nobody may be giving much thought
at present could develop into' the
big issue of the session.
As usual, the biggest problem on
the horizon is financial-whether
to raise more money to keep up
with growing demands of the school
and welfare systems and pay for
proposed additional state services.
But even that -problem seems to
center around how to revise the
sales tax-not the question of en-
tering new fields of taxation that
-have caused many legislative rows.
Some want to cut out the present
exemptions, others want to reduce
it to a flat 2 per cent across the
board, and some want to do away
with it entirely.
Let's take a look at some of the
outstanding pieces of legislation.
These are either measures the law-
makers themselves have said they
will introduce or proposals backed
by officials or organizations power-
ful enough to make it likely their
-projects will appear in bill form.
The state's retail merchants want
the laws against passing bad checks
tightened, and they also want coun-
ties to have authority to set up
small claims courts which could
settle depts up to $250.
There will be strong backing from
law enforcement officers and out-
side interests alike to abolish the
system of letting sheriffs, justices
of the peace and constables to keep
their fees. The proposal is to put
them on regular salaries and turn
their fees into the general fund.
The game and fresh water fish
commission will be back with its
previously rejected proposal to as-
sess "cane pole" fishermen $1.00 a
year as a license fee.
It is quite likely that the legisla-
tors will be asked by school backers
to put a constitutional amendment
on the next general election ballot
to permit homesteads to be taxed
for school purposes only.
County judges intend to ask that
the law requiring a three-day wait-
ing period before marriage licenses
are issued be done away with, since
they are losing business to Georgia,
which has no waiting period.
Organized crime and gambling
and its effect on the state probably
will loom large in view of the Ke-
fauver crime investigating commit-
tee's Florida findings.
The state welfare 'board and the
milk commission both will probably
be on the legislative griddle, as will
a number of other agencies.

FIREMEN FIGHT STUBBORN

The volunteer firemen battled a
stubborn woods fire at the corner

League in past years seems to
have put the kibosh on the league
this season, since a couple of the

in for the 1951 season if' such
practices are allowed.
The second league meeting here
last Sunday found only represen-

and Port St. Joe.
President Tom Owens states
that these two teams will 'organ-
ize with local players and start
the season, with the hope that
other teams will join in the league
later. Both Blountstown and We-

when the forests are destroyed the
soil erodes, plant life fails, wild
life dies out, and as a result our
human resources suffer.

When a nasty cold leaves you in a weakened and run-down

Our Country Right or Wrong
MOBILIZE FOR DEFENSE
The Red Cross fund campaign this year comes
at a time when the nation is at a critical period
in its history-a time when the resources of every
individual and organization must be prepared
for an all out effort to strengthen our spiritual
and material forces.
As an organization, the Red Cross has an im-
portant part of the job to be done. The govern-
ment has assigned to it the duty of procuring
blood for military and civil defense needs; the
training of 20,000,000 people in first aid, more
than 1,000,000 in home nursing, and hundreds of
thousands as nurse's aides. In addition, the Red
Cross must carry forward its responsibilities to
the armed forces-personal services which can-
not be given by the military but which must be
provided if we are to have a strong-hearted fight-
ing force. For these, and its regular duties, the
Red Cross this year needs $85,000,000, and of
this amount Gulf county has been assigned a
quota of $1500.

Dr. H. F. Wolfe of the University

A complete commercial fertilizer
soak the ground with water, spread
fertilizer thinly over the root area
(one-half to one pint for a two-
foot shrub, two to four pints for

containing small plants, and one to
two quarts, depending on spread of
branches, for six-foot shrubs), rake
mulch back in place and then wash
in the fertilizer with a sprinkler.

Business Firms, Farmers and In-

Given 'Green Light'
The federal government has acted
to help business firms, farmers and
institutions of Gulf county to con-
tinue in operation so that the na-
tion's existing equipment in the
production of goods and services
may be maintained at peak effici-
According to information received
by The Star from the U. S. Depart-
ment of Commerce in Atlanta, ar-
rangements have been made for
warehouses, factories, retail and
wholesale establishments, service
shops, farms, hospitals, schools. li-
braries, churches and federal, state
and local governmental agencies in
the county to obtain equipment and
supplies for maintenance, repair
and operation of present facilities.
The action was necessary because
of the government's program now
being administered by the com-
merce department's National Pro-
duction Authority to conserve for
remabilization purposes certain raw
materials in 'short supply. Under
this program, portions of such prod-
ucts as steel, copper, aluminum,
etc., of which there is a relative
shortage in the country today, are
being diverted for use in the manu-
facture of war materials, resulting
in a growing scarcity of such ma-
terials for other purposes.
So, in order that equipment now
being used by farmers, business es-
tablishments and institutions of
Gulf county in the production of
goods and services may not deteri-
orate to the point of disuse, the
NPA has given those in charge of
that equipment the right to use pri-
ority orders in requesting replace-
A specific,, procedure for taking
care of such,'requests has been es-
tablished in Regulation 4 issued by
NPA, and it is suggested that those
interested should request further
information regarding NPA's action
from the nearest field office of the
department of commerce, which in
