supreme court was given,. the Lake
Wimico & ,St. Joseph Canal Com-
pany had been incorporated by the
legislative council of Florida to
connect the lake with the bay. Now
the work was rapidly pushed. In
May, 1935 parties were dispatched
to explore the lake and, naturally,
their reports were very favorable.
Another party began sounding the
-channel of the bay. At about the
same time, surveyors started to lay
out the new town, which was to be
called St. Joseph. The plan of the
place provided for wide streets "in
order to give a free circulation to
the sea breezes," which would make
it healthy and salubrious. The
streets were laid out at right angles
and had such characteristic names
as Bay, Commerce, Palmetto, Mag-
nolia, Washington and Columbus.
On June 13 the subscription books
of the canal company were opened
.at Apalachicola, and in a few min-
utes the entire stock was taken. It
is significant that the ApaiaLhi-
colians held 'three-eighth, of' the
stock, It-. ,tcj:'Le. ~a L i of-k *:'',us,
Ga., another three-ie htlh. while re-
mauling quarters were bought by
Tallahasseeans. This shows clearly
the chief interests backing the pro-
.-n addition to the discontented
residents of the old town, the sup-
port-.of the commercial powers of
western Georgia was a potent fac-
tor in the developemnent of the new
town of St. Joseph. We can readily
imagine why t ey' were, interested.
Their investments in Apalachicola
were. threatened by the decision of
the federal tribunal and hence their
feelings were similar to those of
the\residents of that city. The pur-
chase of one-quarter of the stock
by persons in Tallahassge proves
that the venture was also a child of
the economic conditions then pre-
vailing over the, entire country.
Period of Speculation
This Was one of the recurring
periods of intensive speculation and
overdevelopment, which economists
now recognize as one of the phases
of a business cycle. Everywhere
there was a wild orgy of real es-
tate development, aided by cheap
paper money issued by banks with
enormous capitals. The chief finan-
cial institution of Florida was the

SFull Time Workers Appointed
and Standing of Married
Gulf county classroom teachers
were granted a cost-of-living in-
crease in salaries at the last regu-
lar meeting of the county board of
public instruction. The increase will
be approximately $150 above pres-
Many of the other counties of
Florida had previously revamped
their teacher salary schedules to
provide cost-of-living increases, and
action by the Gulf county board is
good news for local teachers. The
increased salaries will not become
effective until the beginning of the
next school term.
Among other matters taken up
by the board was that of adopting
some, sort of policy in regard to
students marrying and remaining.
in school. After much discussion,
the board decided to be governed
by a letter Superintendent Owens
had received from th& state depart-
ment of education concerning the
.legality of the board adopting some
sort of policy.
The letter stated that the statutes
auhorize school boards to deter-
mine and adopt 'suph policies as
may be .:,.ri:-idere-i- ui-,-:..;s: by
them to pr1idje r L hie euicient
operation and general improvement
of the county school system, but
that such policies should not coh-
flict with existing laws, pointing
out that if a pupil is under 16 years
of age there would be a conflict
with the compulsory education law.
The state department noted that
the law is silent on the matter of
married pupils attending school,
and if a policy were adopted apply-
ing to pupils 16 and above, the
board might subject itself to a suit
in the courts on constitutional
grounds for abridgement of rights.
The board re-appointed 'the fol-
lowing full time workers in schools
of the county: Marguerite Hardy,
Anna B. Adams, Mrs. H. C. Harvey,
Minnie G. Patterson, Essie Williams
and iMyrtice Zipperer, lunchroom
workers in the Port St. Joe elemen-
tary schbol; Mrs. Pat Bray, Mrs. C.
R. Smith and Ella Beard, lunchroom
workers in the'Port St. Joe high
school, and Mrs. C. F. Hanlon, Mrs.
L. C. Joines and Mrs. Gordon Al-
ford, lunchroom workers in the We-

COMING! THE BIGGEST SHOW ON EARTH!
It looks as if we're in for it. The roughest,
toughest, most unpredictable (and perhaps most
significant) political fight in American history
would seem to be coming up. The storm that
has been rumbling for 20 years is about to bust.
'The ominous clouds are over us now, and thereds
something more than heat-lightning to come.
It will be thrilling to watch .. but kind of
skeery, too. The forces of wrath are always ter-
rible in action. Somebody always gets hurt. And
it could be all of us.
We are referring, of course, to the forthcoming
Trouble with a man and his wife living as
one, they can't decide which one.

What this country needs in November is a
great army of mugwumps. Webster defines a
mugwump as "a bolter from the Republican
party in the national election of 1884; hence an
independent in politics." The definition also goes
on to say that "the bolters in 1884 were charged
with regarding themselves as superior to their
party in character and intelligence, and were
But today the definition of a iugwump would
be "a bolter from the so-called Democratic party,
which is no more like the Democratic party of
old than day is like night."
One would not be required to possess too ex-
emplary a character to feel superior to the pres-
ent Democratic party and the present adminis-
tratipn, which has-been riddled with special priv-
ilege and downright crime. One would not have
to be a mastermind to feel superior in intelli-
gence to an administration which has botched
almost everything it has undertaken.

The interest of the banks in.St.
Joseph is often brought to light
Thus in 1836 it was claimed that the
:presidents of the Union Bank of
Florida, .of the Bank of Columbus,
and of the Commercial Bank of Ap-
,alachicola and the ex-president of
the Bank of Marianna, were finan-
cially interested in the town. In the
same year Ben Chaires, a banker
and planter of Tallahassee, was
president of the Lake Wimico &
St. Joseph Canal and Railroad Com-
pany. This. close connection be-
twgen the banks and the town must
always be remembered by those
who wish to understand its history.
The next steps taken by the pro-
'moters were the. construction of a
railroad from Lake Wimico to the
bay and the erection of terminal fa-
,cilities at both ends. Towards the
close of October, or at the very be-
ginning of November, 1935, it was
reported that 100 carpenters and
20.0 laborers were employed on the
railroad and. :at tao or three hun.

from the north.
The exabt date of completion of
the railroad is not known, but in
an advertisement dated August 13,
1836: it was announced that the
storage houses and wharf on Lake
Wimico were completed, that those
on the bay were almost finished and
that the railroad, with passenger
and freight cars and two improved
Baldwin locomotives, was ready for

The people of Florida paid out
$1,0653'24,001 last year for all gov-
ernment services-federal, county,
state and municipal, not to mention
This bill for government at all
levels amounted to 31% of the total
earnings and income from all
sources of the people of Florida in
1951. In other words, 31c out of
every dollar you earned went to

included internal revenue collec-

$170,000,000 in "hidden" federal
taxes< $227,287,159.in state taxes;
$88,535,409 in county taxes, and
$65,494,500 in municipal taxes.
The comparable 1950 full tax, to-
tal is reported as being virtually
$170,000,000 below last year's fig-

ydu). Compared with 1940, the 1951
total is greater by 503% while the
income of Floridians increased but
The increase in taxes since 1940
has 'been accompanied by a grow-
ing proportion of taxes paid to the
federal government. In 1940 fed-
eral revenue collections and "hid-

over one-third of all taxes paid in
Florida. Last year the federal gov-

Odham Speaks Here
Outlines Proposed Project To Four-
Lane All Main Highways
Devoting but 15 minutes to a talk
here-Wednesdsay afternoon, Brailey
Odham, candidate for governor of
Florida, failed to take any verbal
cracks at his opponent, Dan Mc-
Carty, but did pass out pamphlets
showing wJieie McCarty was 'way
off the beam.
He told' of his proposed project
for four-laneing all main highways
of the state, including Highway 98,
and stated that 'the estimated cost
of $372,000,000 could be paid off
over a period of 30 years by setting
aside two cents of the state gas
tax. "This project could be worked
out on this plan and by eliminating
the slush and graft that now goes
on, in our.roaid construction," he
And while on this-subject Odliam
said that state contracts are not
put up for competitive bidding, but
that if he is elected governor he
will see to it that all bids- will be
on ,a competitive basis. "Just be-
cause a man'ffIs a member of the
legislature is ho reason for him to
get state contracts without bid-
ding," he added.'
In replying to a question in re-
gard to the state sales tax, Odham
said that thd 'tax is not fair, but
that it is here to stay, "but if I am
elected I can assure you that it
will not be raised and that there
will be no tax on the food you eat
nor on the first $10 worth of cloth-
ing you purchase."
