Fires Take Toll of 4,818,259 Acres
With Greatest Loss In Those Areas
Lacking OrganiZed Protection
Forest fires took a toll of 4,818,-
259 acres of Florida timberland in
1950. This was the highest loss re-
ported by any state, arid 92% of
the loss, occurred on the more than
7,000,000 acres of state and private
timberland still without organized
protection from fire.
A total of 32,250 fires were re-
ported during the year. This was
an increase over the number re-
ported in 19.49, when 30,157 fires
burned 3,216,301 acres of Florida
Incendiarism continues to be a
principal cause of fire in the state.
Willful woods burners started 6,904
forest fires on lands under organ-
ized protection last year. This was
2000 more than were reported the
previous year. Careless debris burn-
ers and smokers were the next
Commenting on Florida's serious
forest fire losses in 1950. J. C. Mlc-
Clellan, chief forester for the Am-
erican Forest Products Industries,
'stressed the need for continued em-
phasis on woodland protection. He
pointed out that the rate of forest
fire loss on unprotected land was
21 times greater than on land un-
der organized protection.
"Man's most effective tool in pre-
venting forest fires is education,"
McClellan declared. "An alert pub-
lic, aware of its collective respon-
sibility for preventing fire -in the
woods, can keep America's forests
green, growing and productive."
In Traditional March
At Judson College
Miss Norma Jean Lewis of this
city was among the seniors of Jud-
son College, Marion, Ala., who led
the march on the traditional "Rose
Sunday" commemorating founding
of the college 114 years ago. The
seniors, in their academic caps and
gowns, which were brightened by a
rose, marched under a chain of ivy
held by the underclassmen as they
marched down Jewett' Walk to the
Siloam Baptist Church.
Judson's founder and first presi-
dent was Milo P. Jewett who later
was instrumental in the founding
of Vassar College at Poughkeepsie,
N. Y., of which he was president.

Four Times Daily Bus Service
To Link Tallahassee
Improved mail service for Port
St. Joe and this entire section of
Northwest Florida was promised by
Congressman Bob Sikes last Satur-
day while he was attending a Shrine
meeting in Panama City.
He said that although the postof-
fie department budget was cut
this year, the department recog-
nized the need for modern postal
bus service between Pensacola and
Tallahassee, via Panama City and
Port St. Joe, and that department
officials recently made an inspec-
tion tour of this rapidly-growing
section of Florida.
According to Sikes, bus service,
twice daily, will be installed as soon
as possible, which will definitely
improve the mail service into Port
St. Joe.' which now has but two de-
liveries daily -this new service
would boost it to six.
These "rolling postoffices" would
leave each end of the proposed run
With our rapidly growing city,
this wpuld be almost a #ecessity,
and, -too, with city delivery to be
established soon, a big load will be
taken off the local postoffice which
at present is sadly lacking in 'box
facilities to handle the demand for
this type of service. Many of the
present lock-boxes are used by from
two to four families.
Postmaster Costin Sees
Appearing before the city com-
missioners Tuesday night, Acting
Postmaster Chauncey Costin said
that city delivery for Port St. Joe
was assured if the city would co-
operate in some matters, such as
improving several streets and per-
haps having a few sidewalks im-
Postmaster Costin was assured
by the city dads that full co-opera-
tion will be forthcoming from the
city and agreed to do anything that
is necessary to bring this improve-
ment to our city.

For Voter Re-registration
The proposed budget for the city
of Port St. Joe for the ensuing year,
as submitted to the city commission
by Ben Dickens, city auditor and
clerk, calls for $136,912.86, which is
to be raised by a millage of 16.1 on
an assessed property valuation of
This is a reduction of .8 mill over
last year's tax rate, which was 16.9
mills. The tax rate has been drop-
ping steadily during the past few
years, the rate being 23 mills in
1948, 18 mills in 1949 and 16.9 mills
Comparing the present estimated
budget, which will be found else-
where in this issue of The Star,
we find that it is $8,347.63 greater
than that of last year, which came
to $128,565.23. The 1949 .cost of op-
erating the city was $131,800.

Among other matters passed on
by the city dads was authorization
of the Florida Power Corporation
to install new type overhanging
street lights on Monument and Reid
Avenues from First Street to Fifth

lumens, as against the present rat-
ing of 1000 lumens. Due to the fact
that steel standards are not avail-
able at the present time, the lights
will be hung from brackets on the
power poles, but will be transferred
to special standards when they be-
The commission also ordered the
city attorney to draw up an ordin-
ance providing for re-registration of
the city's voters, there being such
a large number now on the lists
who have moved away or died. The
ordinance will allow the registra-
tion books to remain open until a
short time before the next city
election-almost 12 months-which
should allow plenty of time for all
qualified electors to get their names
on the books.

Quick Freeze May Speed
Flower Seed Germination
To grow difficult flower seeds does
not require any magic skill, but
chiefly patience, plus the knowledge
of what special environment these
seeds require. Seeds want to grow,
if you can provide a place where
they can do so.
SFor example, trollius, hardy phlox,
dictamnus, irises, peonies and some
lilies prefer to be frozen before they
start to grow, and may be sown in
a flat, or flower pot, and left out-
doors in a sheltered place over
. A substitute for this lengthy treat-
ment can be used by any owner of
an electric ice box. Take an ice
tray from 'the refrigerator and fill
It half full of water. Float a few
seeds on the water in each compart-
ment, and freeze it. Then fill the
trays completely with water and
freeze again. The seeds will then
be encased in ice and may be left
there several days, and planted
when thawed out.
' With other slow germinating sub-
jects taking 30 days to a year to
start, use the following method:
Fill a flat or the shallow pot which
florists call a pan, with potting soil,
firm the soil and broadcast the seed,
then covering lightly and firm again.
Place the receptacle in a shaded lo-
cation where there is free circula-
tion of, air. During spring, summer
and fall, water oftenenough to pre-
vent drying out.'A mulch of peat
moss will help retain moisture. In
winter place in a protected. place
outdoors and cover with leaves. A
place under the eaves of the house
on the side away from the prevail-
ing. wind is good; or a cold frame
may be used. Eventually the seeds
will sprout and the seedlings, will
appear. They should be transplant-
ed when they make true leaves to

ers Grow Better After They Are

Experienced gardeners seldom dis-
card ,a pan or flat in which slow
germinating subjects have been
sown until at least a year has been
given for the seedlings to appear.
When moss appears on the surface
of the soil in pots and pans, sprinkle
fresh earth over it.

SENATOR SHANDS PLANS
TO QUIT PUBLIC OFFICE
State Senator W. A. Shands, a
power in the Florida legislature, in
a speech Monday before the Ocala
Rotary Club, said he planned to re-
tire from politics when he com-
pletes his current term.
The Gainesville senator, who was
elected to a four-year term in 1950,
was a candidate for governor in
1948 and is known as the father of
the sales tax. He was chairman of
the senate appropriations commit-
tee in the 1947 legislature and also
chairman of the finance and tax-
ation committee in 1949 and 1951.

Our Country -E Right or Wrong
WHY SCHOOL BOARD SALARIES?
portionss of the following editorial are reprinted
from the March 9 issue of The Star at the request
of a number of local citizens.)
In 1947 the state legislature passed what is
known as the "Minimum Foundation Law," guar-
anteeing specified amounts to the various coun-
ties for operation of schools on a per-pupil, per-
-teacher basis. At the same time, this law pro-
hibited salaries for members of school boards,
apparently with the thought of cutting a sliver
or two off the cost of upkeep of the schools.
Apparently a lot of counties-or, more likely, a
lot of school board members in those counties-
didn't think much of the idea, and at the 1949
legislative session 24 counties pushed through
local laws establishing salaries for school board
members in defiance of the general law.
Gulf county got on the band wagon at the
1951 legislative session with a local bill providing
salaries of $50 per month for members of the
school board and 10c per mile for traveling ex-
penses. A referendum was tacked to the bill, and
the board of county commissioners has now set
September 29 as the date for the voters to pass
or reject the measure. Why Saturday we don't
know; since we believe there will be but a 1

Seek 2-Party System
Speaker Says Two-Party Govern-
ment Will Serve the People
and Not the Party
A two party system that will
strengthen Florida's national politi-
cal bargaining power is the solution
to many of the state's problems,
Charles F. Batchelder of Orlando
said at a West Florida Republican
rally held.in DeFuniak Springs.
The GOP leader said it is the in-
herent right of every American "to
think, for himself, decide who will
represent him in the political
bodies that affect his everyday liv-
ing, to protect his home and his
family with his ballot."
"Two-party government gives him
the right to protest a decision of the
present majority by its replacement
with another majority," went on
Batchelder. "Two-party government
is the only government that will
serve the people and not the party."
Janet Fitzgerld, Broward county
Republican state committeewoman,
said that "it is a little too early to
be campaigning, but we certainly
don't feel that it is too early to get
out and get rid of the men we now
have in the White House."
The speaker blamed Republicans
for President Truman being in of-
fice, claiming, "too many Republi-
cans were overconfident and didn't
work in the last presidential elec-
tion, and Truman went in by default
with less than 45 per cent of the na-
tion's total vote going to him.

ting citizens out to vote in the next

When George Cooper opened his
new barber shop he had one of
those coconut husk door mats laid
on the sidewalk in front of thedoor.
Don't know whether it was the in-
flux of customers into the tonsorial
emporium or passersby that wore
it down, but a couple of weeks ago
we noticed that the original mat,
about 18x24 inches, had worn down
to about six by eight inches, with
long stringers running in all direc-
tions-in fact it sorta looked like
the fringed top on one of those old-
fashioned surreys .... Now George
has done away with that faithful
old mat, having replaced it with a
brand new one. But it will never
be the same, as customers had be-
come so accustomed to seeing Old
Faithful lying at their feet as they
entered the shop, even though there
wasn't enough left of the old boy to

S. .Sic transit gloria mundi.
Received another nice letter from
Rev. O. D. Langston from up Au-
burn, Alabama, way, who was here
a couple of weeks ago on a visiting
and fishing expedition and who sent
us a flock of fishing floats and
quills he had designed and made.
S. Haven't had time to try any
of 'em yet, since the only time we
have been fishing was when we lost
that seven-pound five-ounce bass, as
we noted in last week's column.
However, we'll get around to trying
'em out eventually. .. 0. D. says,
in part: "Sorry we failed to see you.
We knocked on your door, but fig-
ured you and Mrs. Smith had gone
to Stardust Lodge for the week-end.
We left St. Joe Monday and went-
to Mrs. Beard's place on the Dead
Lakes. The fish were on a strike!
We didn't get much,,but we enjoyed
trying..... May see you before
cold weather, as:,a friend, of, miae
here wants to go to the.Dead Lakes
fishing as he has never been there.
.Read your article in The Star
about my 'doodles.' I hope you
found some of them useful and
practical. I sold-one full card with
67 specimens on it to the Gulf Hard-
ware Co. Thanks for the writeup."
S. .Anyone wanting to see what
kind of work O. D. does-and it is
really artistic-can go down to the
Gulf Hardware or drop in at The
Star office and take a look.
Well, our city commissioner race
is over for another year, and sev-
eral candidates, as usual, were a
bit disappointed. We were going to,
write something on it, but we find
just what we need in the Wakulla
County News, written by Joe Mal-
pas. Sez Joe: "We have watched
several possible candidates get their
noses nipped this .past two. weeks
Good training :fo',rt e hopeful." Bur.
seriously, every citizen should at
one time or other run for some of-
fice. If he wins, he will finally get
over it, and if he loses he becomes
a member of a great order of "them
what tried, but didn't." And for
your own information, we are a cor-
poral in the order, having set an
all-time record years ago for get-
ting the lowest possible number of
votes ever received by any candi-
date for mayort That. record will,
no doubt, stand fir another hundred
years. But we mention this
simply to inform the hopefuls that
a political campaign is at times
rough, and after that slightly brutal
and if a guy has any personal feel-
ings that can be hurt, he had better
stay out. For some reason it has
for many years been a time-honored
custom for the office-holder to
stomp, one way or another, every
head that looks like it might be a
candidate for his office. This ex-
tends from the president on down."
Amen, Brother Malpas, you said
it! But we think we can beat
your record as a potential 'candi-
date. We ran for commissioner, at
the behest of the local merchants'
association, who said they'd do all
our politicking for us, since we had
informed them we were too tied
down to go around stumping the
city, and when the votes were tal-
lied what we then considered an
all-time record was set-13 votes.
S. And we, personally, voted for
our opponent, Jim Bounds.
TWO INJURED IN AUTO
CRASH SUNDAY NIGHT
Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Kelly of this
city were, treated at the municipal
hospital Sunday night for cuts and
bruises sustained in an automobile
accident on Highway 90, according
to a report by Patrolman Farrior of

attempting to pass another car and
his vehicle went into a skid on the
wet pavement when he applied the
brakes after, seeing an oncoming
car. His machine skidded toward
the left shoulder of the road and
was rammed by the approaching
car driven'"by Kelly.
